District survey still being weighed School leaders say implementation must be carefully considered By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Community members repeatedly have requested a return of the once-annual Douglas County School District parent and employee surveys.

School board president Kevin Larsen recently said the idea is not off the table, but that it must be thoroughly examined. A parent survey has not been done since 2012, and DCSD discounted those results as too small to be statistically valid. Some parents believe the surveys are needed to gauge community satisfaction with the district’s policies and direction, and they again asked for their return during the March 3 Board Unplugged meeting at Parker’s Cimarron Middle School. “It’s something I think we could look at,”

Larsen said after the meeting. “To just say we’re going to do a survey, I think that’s got to be very carefully considered. How do we do that so the results we get from it truly represent the whole community and have meaningful, valid results we can base some things on? It really needs to be cross sectional, representative of everybody’s viewpoints.” Larsen also noted the board was elected based on an education reform platform, and a survey’s results likely wouldn’t prompt a change in direction.

He also said the key components of DCSD’s education reform — including pay-forperformance, the market-based pay scale and other policies — already are in place. “I don’t think we’re going to be dealing with so many changes,” he said. “We’re trying to just refine what we’ve already laid out.” Regardless, the Strong Schools Coalition is among many who continue to advocate for a survey.

Local historians continue to worry about the future of Castle Rock’s oldest building. The circa-1872 City Hotel, at 415 Perry St. — a two-story wooden building with peeling paint and major structural problems, stands out in an area of mainly upscale shops and restaurants. The question is whether it will continue to be preserved. The hotel didn’t make this year’s list of endangered places in Colorado, compiled by Colorado Preservation Inc., a nonprofit organization that provides expertise, grant-writing and other assistance to help save and renovate places on the list.

Low-income families who struggle to pay for child care could get some relief, under a Democrat-sponsored bill that cleared its first legislative hurdle on March 5. But Republicans on the House Finance Committee called the effort a “Band Aid” approach to a problem that they believe is not up to government to solve. House Bill 1072 would create child care tax credits to families who make less than $25,000 a year in federally-adjusted gross income. The credit would be equal to 25 percent of a taxpayer’s child care expenses. The new credit — which is capped at $1,000 — would only be available to those who do not qualify for existing child care tax credits that are tied to federal returns. Rep. Brittany Pettersen, D-Lakewood, a bill sponsor, told the committee that parents in poverty often face two choices — either give up their career endeavors to take care of their children or use a large portion of their incomes to pay for child care. “This bill will increase self-sufficiency by allowing parents to stay in the workforce,” Pettersen said. “Our child care expenses are one of the most expensive in the nation.” Marlana Wallace of the Colorado Fiscal Institute, a nonpartisan economic think tank that supports the legislation, said that Colorado ranks as the fifth least affordable state for infant care and that child care costs often soak up as much as half of a lowincome family’s income. Only those who support the legislation provided testimony, including Megan Smith, an Alamosa single mother of a 7-year-old child. Smith said she moved to Colorado from Chicago to attend Adams State University five years ago and that she initially struggled to pay for child care. Smith said that she now has a good-paying job with the university and currently wouldn’t qualify for the tax credit. She told committee members that she remembers what it was like to struggle and that she

A forecast full of money comes our way The second half of the legislative session will be best summed up by an overused 1990s catch phrase. “Show me the money.” While lawmakers spent quite a bit of time working on flood legislation during the first half of the session, the real story right now is the flood of bills that are piling up in appropriations committees, waiting to be funded. The hundreds of bills that sit in appropriation limbo are like a casting room full of singing, animated bills that are auditioning for “School House Rock.” “But I know I’ll be a law someday. At least I hope and pray that I will. But today I am still just a bill.” Starting March 18, there’s going to be a lot of lawmakers sitting around praying that their bills will not only become law, but will receive funding to boot. That’s the day that the Joint Budget Committee is scheduled to announce the state’s revenue forecast for the upcoming fiscal year. The forecast will determine which bills get money and which ones don’t. Whatever happens after that day, the result is certain to disappoint some lawmakers. “We will have tough decisions as we move through (the appropriations process),” said House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver. “There’s a lot of good ideas out there, but it doesn’t mean we can fund them all.” The JBC will do its best to cobble together a budget that comes close to the

one that Gov. John Hickenlooper has proposed — a $24 billion long bill that could result in hundreds of millions of dollars in additional funding for Colorado schools. In addition to Senate Bill 1 legislation, which would pump more than $100 million into higher education, the budget is also expected to include $230 million for K-12 education, as outlined by House Bill 1292, the Student Success Act. While the additional funding will go a long way in replacing money that was drained from education funding in recent lean budget years, even the sizable cash infusion is certain to leave some educators wanting more. Last month, school superintendents called on lawmakers to address the socalled “negative factor” in education funding, which came as a result of $1 billion in education budget cuts in recent years. Superintendents point to a healthier state education fund as a sign that perhaps this is the year they get all the funding they want, will few strings attached.

But that’s not going to happen. “They look at that fund and say, `Lets spend it,’ ” Ferrandino said of school superintendents. “The problem is when we spend it all down, then we’re in a place where there’s volatility and we can’t sustain it. It’s their job to do all they can to push for education, and I respect that. It’s our job as policy makers for the state to try to deal with all competing districts and look not just at the short term, but long term.” Senate President Morgan Carroll, DAurora, understands that there is “pent up frustration” on the part of school superintendents who haven’t been getting the funding that was originally expected through 2000’s Amendment 23 — the voter-approved initiative that required funding for education that exceeds the annual rate of inflation. Lawmakers had to take a chisel to that initiative in recent years. “Patience is running out and (superintendents) would like to catch up all at once, with no strings attached,” Carroll said. “And the reality is, within the revenue we have, we don’t mathematically have the option of zeroing out what’s referred to as the negative factor.” Education will make up the lion’s share of the budget. And there are several other funding areas that are certain to receive infusions — efforts aimed a flood and wildfire mitigation, as well as tax credits for business and families, to name a few. But $24 billion gets eaten up pretty

quickly during the sausage-making process. “People fight over more money than we do over less,” said Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman, R-Colorado Springs. Cadman said that about “a half a billion dollars in spending is waiting in line for the (budget forecast),” with Cadman equating those who are hoping for money to come their way as being “drunk monkeys” that already lined up. House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland, said more money needs to go to transportation and education, but also said that it’s important to practice temperance when doling out cash — because you never know. “Yes, we have resources but we don’t want to extend ourselves where we get to the point where we are slashing and burning like we were a few years ago,” DelGrosso said. “That’s not fair to the people of Colorado, when you try to run a state that way.” So March 18 is going to be an awfully interesting day. There’s going to be some folks who are happy and some who aren’t. And there’s going to be some joyous “School House Rock” songs sung by bills that made it, while other sad little bills are left singing the blues.

I e would freak out if I don’t have my coffee.” ho That’s why Scharnell, 51, created a busious ness that seeks to lend a friendly hand, ls shoulder or ear, along with deep discounts. are Ideal Garage Sale, a consignment store tucked in a strip mall near Costco, has nearly 4,000 items in stock to prop up those who be are going through a difficult time. tyIn a place where status is a known comr: @ modity, there is little visible evidence of the family struggles that Scharnell and human services agencies know exist in the community. “We make it comfortable for people to talk about it,” she says. Along with her longtime friend, Chris Dailey, and Lily, a Shar Pei/German Shepherd rescue who spends her days lazing on the merchandise, Scharnell has built a store that’s becoming known across all demo-

Ideal Garage Sale also is connected with Air Scharnell, a hobby shop that specializes in remote control aircraft. With merchandise of all shapes and sizes overflowing the shelves, it might appear as though the store is in disarray, but everything is carefully marked, organized and categorized. Ideal Garage Sale stocks a range of items, from comfy leather recliners and kitchen tables to antiques and toys. Even though the store has only been open for six months, Scharnell and Dailey have heard their fair share of stories and met plenty of people in need. One single mother of five recently loaded up on household goods at prices that were too good to pass up. Prices start at 50 cents. “Even though we’re a consignment store, a thrift store, whatever you want to call us, we work just like a garage sale: everything is negotiable,” Scharnell said. All of the proceeds from the sale of donated items are put into a separate “ministry fund” used to rescue people who are down on their luck. Ideal Garage Sale is not a nonprofit and has no ties to one particular organization, but victims of tragedy are sent from churches, task forces, the American Red Cross and law enforcement agencies. “If we don’t have what they need, I will take money from the ministry fund and go get it for them, because I’ve been there,” she said. “I know what it feels like to not be able to afford anything.” Ideal Garage Sale, 18320 E Cottonwood Drive, Suite G-2, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Fraudulent drug test bill fails in committeeR Republican-sponsored legislation would’ve fined those who cheat employer tests By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A Senate committee on March 5 rejected a bill that sought to impose legal penalties in cases where employees try to cheat on company-mandated drug tests. The Republican-sponsored effort had previously passed the House, but Democrats on the Senate’s State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee killed the legislation. The committee chairman wondered how accusations involving a fake or diluted drug test would hold up in a court of law if there were no actual visual proof that the employee was trying to cheat by using a urine-cleansing device. “Is it eye witness testimony that (determines that) this person used a Whizzinator or video proof that this person used a Whizzinator?” said Sen. Jesse Ulibarri, D-Commerce City. “I don’t believe that government belongs in the bathroom or the bedroom.”

House Bill 1040 would have created a petty offense penalty for employees who attempt to defraud a drug test for occupations where the testing is required by law. Police, corrections officers, and commercial vehicle drivers are a few of the professionals who would have been impacted by the bill. Under the bill, those who try to hide their drug use through fake or diluted urine samples would have been subjected to fines of up to $5,000, depending on McNulty how many times they tried to cheat. The bill would not have applied in cases where business-mandated drug testing is not legally required. Some who testified in opposition to the bill said the legislation is clearly aimed at targeting marijuana users, with one witness calling it “the marijuana testing bill.” Sen. Mark Scheffel, R-Parker, acknowledged that Amendment 64’s legalization of recreational pot use has created a “vast unknown in a new permissiveness,” but said there needs to be some teeth in cases where

employees knowingly attempt to defraud drug tests. “As it stands now, other than (employee) dismissal, there is no penalty for what is described here,” Scheffel said. The original version of the bill would have created new criminal misdemeanor drug offenses for those who cheat on drug tests, which could have resulted in jail time. However, prior to passing the House, the bill was amended to create only petty offenses that carry fines, rather than time behind bars. Deputy Attorney General David Blake said the penalty would have been “a logical extension” of law that requires drug testing in certain professions. Blake also reminded those in the audience that employers are allowed to penalize workers for marijuana use, even though pot consumption is now legal. But opponents of the effort said the bill is unfairly aimed at pot users. Terry Robnett, a medical marijuana patient and advocate, told the committee that because TCH metabolites are stored in fat cells, the drug leaves the body at a much slower rate than other substances. So, in many cases, marijuana will remain

in a person’s blood 30 days after initial impairment. “You can go out on a Friday night and paint the town red with meth or cocaine and come in Monday morning and test perfectly clean,” Robnett said. “But, with mari-By V vvela juana, you’re screwed.” Denise Maes of the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado wondered why the Ri government should be involved in this pro-subje strict cess to begin with. “There is a lot of discretion on the partvices of employer to fire at will,” she said. “It’s aon M Tr matter left to the employer and employee.” Uber Ulibarri agreed, saying that the loss of income from being fired “is a significantrides penalty” and that the legislation attemptsThe to “solve a problem that doesn’t exist.” Theservi bill failed in the Democrat majority com-beca diffe mittee following a 3-2 party-line vote.

LEGISLATIVE BRIEFS One `Jessica’s Law’ effort survives, one doesn’t

Dueling versions of a bill aimed at creating stiffer penalties for those who commit sex crimes on children were heard in legislative committee hearings last week, but only one survived. The House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee on March 3 gave unanimous approval to a Democrat-sponsored bill that would create a Colorado version of Jessica’s Law. The law is a national initiative that came as a result of the 2005 rape and murder of 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford of Florida, and would impose mandatory minimum sentences for sex assaults on children. House Bill 1260, sponsored by Rep. Mike Foote, D-Lafayette, creates a

minimum sentencing structure of 10 years behind bars for crimes of sexual penetration of a child under the age of 12. The bill would also set a minimum sentence of 24 years for serious cases of sexual assault, and judges would be able impose life sentences, if they believe the punishment is warranted. Meanwhile, a Republican effort to create a “Jessica’s Law” statute failed. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Libby Szabo, R-Arvada, would have created the identical version of Florida’s law, which imposes a 25-year minimum sentence for sexual assaults on children.Foote, a Boulder County deputy district attorney, said Szabo lifted the Florida law “almost word for word.” He

tencing purposes. The bill sailed through the House on March 6, with only three Republicans voting no. The bill had previously passed the Senate. The legislation now heads back to the Senate for consideration of the House amendments.

Regulatory reform bill dies

A House committee on March 6 gave unanimous approval to a bill that creates tax credits for business personal property. House Bill 1279 — sponsored by Democratic Reps. Dave Young of Greeley and Dianne Primavera of Broomfield — creates a credit for business personal property taxes for companies with $25,000 or less in equipment value. Young said that about 55,000 Coloradans will qualify for the tax credit. Other versions of the bill had suffered defeats in previous legislative sessions. However, this year’s effort does not cut into revenue that is collected by local governments or school districts. The bill passed the House Business, Labor, Economic and Workforce Development Committee following an 11-0 vote and now heads to the House Finance Committee for further consideration.

Small business tax credit measure advances

A Democrat majority House committee on March 5 killed Republican legislation that sought to ease penalties on small businesses that break new state rules. House Bill 1033, sponsored by Rep. Libby Szabo, R-Arvada, would have allowed small businesses with 100 or fewer employees to receive warnings rather than fines when they commit first-time violations of state rules that are less than a year old. The bill was backed by Republicans and several business groups. However, Democrats on the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee voted in unison against the bill. Szabo said Democrats got their marching orders from the AFL-CIO, the only group to testify against the bill during the committee hearing.

Bill addresses statutes on sex crimes

A bill that does away with statute of limitations for crimes that accompany sex offenses is making its way through the Legislature with bipartisan support. Right now, sex crimes that involve a DNA sample are not subject to statute of limitation guidelines, but crimes that often occur during the commission of a sex crime — such as burglary and kidnapping — do fall under statute of limitations laws. Senate Bill 59 — sponsored by Sen. Lucia Guzman, D-Denver, and Rep. Polly Lawrence, R-Douglas County — would do away with those limitations, allowing courts to consider those crimes for sen-

Newspaper legal notices bill signed into law

Gov. John Hickenlooper on March 7 signed into law a bill that organizes newspaper legal notices on a statewide website. Colorado law requires that all legal notices be published in newspapers of wide circulation that reside within the county where the notices apply. House Bill 1056, sponsored by Rep. Carole Murray, R-Castle Rock, creates a statewide legal notice website that is run by an organization that represents newspapers. Jerry Healey, publisher of Colorado Community Media, joined Murray and Hickenlooper at the bill signing.

Ride-sharing services to be regulated Bill passes Senate with bipartisan support By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com Ride-sharing service companies will be subject to state regulations — but not to as strict a standard as are traditional taxi services — under a bill that passed the Senate on March 10. Transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft allow passengers to book rides through a smart phone application. The companies have been able to provide services without government regulations because they claimed to have fit under a different operating model than taxi companies, an assertion that has upset the taxi industry. But legislators were forced to take regulatory action after the Public Utilities Commission began investigating whether companies like Uber and Lyft are complying

with state transportation rules. “I think it’s an important bill and it’s something that has to be done because the PUC is saying these businesses are acting outside of the law,” said Sen. Ted Harvey, R-Highlands Ranch, a bill sponsor. “And, without this bill, they would no longer be able to do business.” The bill is one of many nationwide responses to the relatively new industry Harvey — Uber, for example, began operating four years ago. Local governments across the U.S. have struggled with determining whether transportation network companies fall under the umbrella of a motor vehicle service or as web-based transportation companies that are entirely different animals, altogether. The bill would require businesses like Uber and Lyft to carry liability insurance, conduct background checks on drivers,

inspect vehicles and receive permission to operate from the PUC. The amended version of the bill also requires that drivers not be allowed to drive more than eight hours in any 24-hour period and that companies keep files containing driver insurance and proof of background checks on file. However, the bill would not require companies like Uber and Lyft to comply with the same set of guidelines that regulate taxi companies, such as regulation of rates and operational requirements. Taxi companies say that the new transportation network companies are hurting their business because they are not required to comply with costly regulations. Sen. Cheri Jahn, D-Wheat Ridge, a bill co-sponsor, said she understands those concerns and hopes that lawmakers will examine taxi regulations at another time. “We are more than happy to look at that, but that’s not this bill,” Jahn said. Jahn lauded companies like Uber and Lyft for creating “an entirely new class of

Affordable housing bill clears House GOP lawmakers say measure will have little impact for families By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia. com A Democrat-sponsored bill that aims to provide more access to affordable housing in Colorado passed the House on March 4, following a partyline vote. Democrats see the bill as an overdue piece of legislation that would help struggling families obtain roofs over their heads, including those who were affected by last year’s flooding that ravaged parts of the state. But House Republicans said Democrats’ own policies have contributed to the lack of affordable housing and that the bill’s effort to help flood-impacted families doesn’t go far enough. House Bill 1017 would provide tax incentives to developers who construct affordable or reasonably-priced homes. The bill also gives the state’s Home Investment Trust Fund the ability to make more low-interest loans

available for the purposes of affordable housing construction. The bill would impact the state’s General Fund by $40 million over the next decade. Rep. Crisanta Duran, DDenver, the bill’s sponsor, said the legislation is a response to the increasing need for affordable housing in Colorado, where rents continue to rise, causing more people to become priced out of their neighborhoods. “It is an issue that has hit every single corner of our state, in both urban and rural areas,” Duran said just before the House vote. A bill amendment that was added prior to the House vote would give housing priority to those who were affected by last year’s floods in the northern part of the state. However, House Republicans said they needed more assurance that the bill would give priority to flood victims and proposed an amendment that would require 50 percent of the money to be set aside for that purpose. That and several other Republican amendments failed. And Republicans wondered whether this bill would do anything to help the state’s affordable housing issues,

hopes the legislation could help others going forward. “If I had that kind of assistance... it would have been a huge impact,” she said. “Every little bit helps.” Supporters of the bill said the legislation would fix a loophole that disqualifies many low-income families from receiving a tax credit that was set up by the state in 1996. The current child care tax credit that’s on the books applies to families that earn less than $60,000 a year. But the credit is tied to federal income taxes, which doesn’t apply to many low-income families because their earnings are too low to even have to file federal taxes. “Middle-class families get a child care tax credit, so lets give the lower income earners tax credits because they are taxpayers, too,” said Rep. Daniel Kagan, D-Cherry Hills. “They are mothers and fathers, too.” About 55,000 families would qualify for the credit, which could reduce state revenues by more than $47 million over the next four fiscal years, according to bill information from the Legislative Council. The bill also provides a three-year sunset clause, meaning the Legislature can evaluate the tax credit down the road to see if it is worth continuing. Yet Republicans questioned the effectiveness of the bill. House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland, said families often have to make decisions about their expenses, including energy bills and car insurance rates, which can also run high. DelGrosso said that it’s not the state’s role to triage which expenses should be granted government-sponsored relief. DelGrosso also said it is better policy to provide financial relief to families by keeping the government out of taxpayers’ wallets to begin with. “We need to start looking at ways to allow people to keep the money we have instead of giving people more money,” DelGrosso said. The bill passed the Democrat majority committee following a 7-5 party-line vote. It now heads to the House Appropriations Committee before receiving a full House vote.

to begin with. Rep. Cheri Gerou, REvergreen, said that Democrats’ own regulations on the construction industry — which were meant to provide more consumer protections — have raised insurance costs and have made it less desirable for developers to build affordable homes. “We’ve basically killed affordable housing in the private sector and this bill does nothing to help that,” Gerou said. House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland, agreed with his Republican colleague. “We think we’re going to dangle a few dollars of a credit in front of someone and that it’s somehow going to solve the problem?” he said. “We’re kidding ourselves.” But Rep. Jonathan Singer, D-Longmont, quoted Chinese philosopher Confucius as he accused Republicans of playing politics for not getting their way in the amendment process. “While on the road to revenge we need to be prepared to dig two graves,” Singer said. “We as a body cannot afford to waste time with petty partisanship when it comes to the flood or this bill.”

jobs” that attracts part-time drivers, such as college students and retirees, who are looking to make a few bucks. Jahn also said that while it’s good to see these companies thrive, it’s just as important to make sure that riders feel safe. “It is our job to make sure there are protections for consumers and we believe we have done that,” Jahn said. While the bill had strong bipartisan support — it passed the Senate following a vote of 29-6 — there was some dissent. Sen. Owen Hill, R-Colorado Springs, blasted the attempts to impose “wet blanket” regulations on the new industry. Hill — who said he has logged 193 trips through Uber — tried unsuccessfully to attach an amendment that would have put off the implementation of the PUC regulations until next year. “When does the PUC have constitutional authority to say who can and can’t pick someone up and take them somewhere else, as part of a private contract?” Hill said. The bill now heads to the House.

Suzanne Greene, Douglas/Elbert Task Force proudly accepts the Business of the Month award as Chamber President, Pam Ridler, Ambassadors and Chamber staff show their support.

The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce recently announced Douglas/Elbert Task Force as our Business of the Month recipient for the month of February. The Douglas/ Elbert Task Force Celebrates 30 Years of Service to our community this year. The Task Force actually began operations in 1981, when Mela Rudolph, one of our founders, offered her garage as a central location for several local churches to store contributions of food and clothing. It was intended to serve travelers stranded in Castle Rock, to assist those who “fell through the cracks,” and to avoid duplication of services. As Douglas County grew, so did demands on the Task Force, and services expanded to include the entire county. In 1996 the agency purchased a 4,000 square foot building at 416 Jerry St. in Castle Rock, which housed client services, the food bank and the thrift store. Services also expanded to include Elbert County. As demand grew, so did their requirements for a larger facility. Their needs were to stay in Castle Rock, ground floor entry for our clients, shoppers at our thrift store and food bank, additional parking, and easy access for donors were critical. Privacy for clients, ample office space and an expanded thrift store area were essential. Their search for a building kept brining them back to 1638 Park St. The agency moved into their present location on Park Street in March of 2010 and purchased the building in February of 2011. At that point they renamed the thrift store Treasures on Park St. Their small staff of 2 full-time and 10 parttime employees, work alongside the more than 210 volunteers who keep the agency running. In 2013 they served almost 15,000 people with over $1.1M in services. Last year the food bank distributed over 463,000 lbs. of food to our neighbors in need and helped many stay in their homes. Please visit their website at www.detaskforce.org for details if you would like to volunteer, donate or shop at the Task Force. Congratulations from the Castle Rock Chamber for being recognized as an outstanding organization!

District 6 race features four candidates Hopefuls to replace Clark Hammelman, answer questions By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@coloradocommunitymedia.com The following are introductory stories about and Q&As with candidates for Castle Rock Town Council’s District 6 seat. Each candidate was asked the same questions by Colorado Community Media. The election is April 1.

Andrew Nemeth

Andrew Nemeth, 24, owns a web design firm and is a full-time youth pastor. He said he has been entrepreneurial since about third grade when his sister made him a knottedstring necklace that he wore to school. Friends were wowed, so he took some allowance, b o u g h t s t r i n g , learned how to make them, and started selling them for a Nemeth profit. In high school, he started a web-design company. For college, he was concerned he might make bad choices in a secular environment and wouldn’t have adequate answers for anyone who challenged his Biblical views, so he enrolled at Christ For the Nations Institute in Dallas

where he got strong clarity about his beliefs and also realized he enjoyed helping people more than business. He moved here for the youth pastor job at The Rock Church in The Meadows. A recent project is “Dough Joe.” In light of recent teen suicides, every other Monday, he and some helpers take free coffee and doughnuts to Castle View High School students to let them know they’re valued. He supports the repeal on open carrying of weapons, has a concealed weapon permit himself, but thinks the public should have the opportunity to vote on it. Nemeth is often told he’s wise beyond his years and consistently exceeds expectations. Nemeth said he thinks town council is doing a great job, just wants to help continue it. Why are you seeking this office? To continue to serve the community in a greater capacity. Currently, I serve the town by working with young people for a local nonprofit; I would like to expand and be able to serve in a variety of ways. I also believe that because I am one of the youngest candidates I could bring a unique perspective to the council. What makes you the best person for the job? I’ve worked extensively with nonprofits and own/ operate a small business, which has taught me to be resourceful, and to accomplish a lot without overspending. I also work hard to maintain integrity and

excellent character. Additionally, it’s been said time and time again, that though I’m young, I have “wisdom beyond my years.” What do you believe is the most important issue facing our town and how will you approach it, if elected? If elected, I’ll work diligently to help continue the purposeful growth of the community while protecting the “small town” feel that makes Castle Rock more than just another city — it makes it our home. I want to work to improve infrastructure, continue to provide excellent parks and facilities, and develop a vibrant and appealing downtown.

David Hickey

David Hickey, 45, who grew up in Boulder, got an accounting degree because he wanted to be an FBI agent and a significant percentage of people chosen, for their analytical abilities, had accounting degrees. He only made it to the second round, so turned to a business career and was picked by the Denver BusiHickey ness Journal several years ago as being one of the “40 under 40” businesspeople to watch. “I was driven at everything and succeeded at about everything I tried,” said Hickey, who is an account manager for Fidelity National Title Company and doubles as a ski patroller for Winter Park and Breckenridge ski areas. Hickey is a supporter of allowing open carrying of weapons, but also supports letting voters decide. He wants more regional draws for the town, such as the proposed Promenade development and artificial snow hill and zip lines. His focus would be bringing high-paying jobs to town to grow the “daytime economy.” For more information, go to www.VoteForDave.US Why are you seeking this office? From proudly raising our children in Castle Rock for nine years, and as a past and present board member of over a dozen service organizations in Douglas County, I am committed to serving in this community. Through these personal and professional opportunities, I comprehensively understand the issues that Castle Rock has and will continue to face. I am not a one-issue candidate. I will preserve the town’s history and smartly manage growth in Castle Rock. I will accomplish those goals by giving back to the community that has given much to me and my family by serving. What makes you the best person for the job? I have lived and worked in Douglas County for 15 years. I am a proven civic and business leader in the community who will be able to be able work with the residents, town staff and business leaders to make sure Castle Rock creates the best opportunities for the community to thrive.

I have a vision of continued smart growth through primary employment that leads to a “Work, Live, Play” development to stimulate our economy. Please see my website for more information on this. What do you believe is the most important issue facing our town and how will you approach it, if elected? The most pressing issue for the new council will be the T.A.B.O.R. Amendment issue. Our community is one of only 13 percent of municipalities or school districts that have not been “De-Bruced.” The Town of Castle Rock’s general revenues are made up of about only $40 on a property tax value for a home valued at $300,000. We will have a tax surplus for the year 2013 in 2014 and will have to decide if we want a moratorium on T.A.B.O.R. for the amount above the T.A.B.O.R baseline or to rebate these monies to the residents or Impact Fee payers. If the residents decided to rebate these monies back to the populous, the cash reserves the town has accumulated will run out in a two- to three-year period. I am for a moratorium on “De-brucing” for a five- to 10-year period, so the town would be able to readjust the baseline and be able afford to pay for future town services.

George Teal

George Teal, 46, a former U.S. Army officer, said he thinks the most meaningful compliment he’s ever received happened after an arduous mission that involved tough ethical decisions. “At the end of it, one of my soldiers said, “ `Lt. Teal, I’ll follow you anywhere’… to have that compliment after such a Teal tough time still chokes me up.” Teal has a bachelor’s degree in history and is a software project manager who has his own business. He is a firearms instructor, but doesn’t “make a dime,” donating his time to the Boy Scouts shooting program. He agrees with the town council’s recent repeal of open carrying of weapons. Teal, who lives in Crystal Valley, is concerned about the proposed doubling of housing densities nearby in the Lanterns development. He doesn’t want to see a “wall” of traffic in his area, like there is in the Meadows/Founders parkways area. And he’s enthusiastic about providing direct representation for Crystal Valley, which it hasn’t had. More information is available on his Facebook page. Why are you seeking this office? I’ve been a resident of Castle Rock since 1998 and my wife and I have been very happy raising our kids in this wonderful community... but over the last few years, I’ve heard repeatedly from fellow business owners stories of failure and consistent snafu’s when

dealing with our town and her departments. Though it’s been exacerbated over the last 12 months, I suppose the tipping point — for me — was watching the town council in action (thank you, Channel 22) and realizing that members of council were just simply OUT OF TOUCH. I’m committed to better representation. Pure and simple. What makes you the best person for the job? Again — I go back to that representation thing. I am 100 percent committed to this town and the families that live in it. I’m not a `special interests’ guy... I don’t represent HOA’s and I don’t do business, in any way, with this town. I live in it. I raise my kids in it. God willing, they’ll return one day and raise their own kids here, too... and so I’m invested. And I’m a long-term kind of guy. I’ve lived here for over 15 years; I know how far we’ve come and I want to help take us into the future. What do you believe is the most important issue facing our town and how will you approach it, if elected? First of all: it’s “OUR TOWN”... And I can tell you the countless stories I’ve heard from business owners about, for example, the Town’s Building Commission and Code Enforcement Officials not working in sync — and those issues are important — but they aren’t what motivate me to knock on the doors of my neighbors, asking for their vote. So I’m just going to come right out and say it: I’m not okay with unelected bureaucrats and political appointees making significant and often devastating decisions about our town. I don’t know what happened to our representative form of government here, but at some point it seems people just threw their arms up in the air and said: I give. And I’m not the kind of guy who will just `give in.’ I am committed to representing the residents of our town — not the bureaucrats who think they run it.

Matt Werner

Matt Werner, an Eagle Scout, was class president in a Sheboygan, Wisc. high school where the principal told him he was “special and going places.” Werner excelled in law school, became a U.S. Air Force judge advocate, and practiced privately for years after. But he said for a number of years he left the Catholic Church, after reading about and believing in the lie of Werner evolution, and began living a life of shallow fun and adventure. Eventually he found the church again, which brought him peace. And now he is still going places, traveling often to Russia and Ukraine as the president of a Catholic nonprofit mission group, Queen of the apostles Mission Association, Inc. The organization helps rebuild Roman and Byzantine Catholic

churches and monasteries and helps support Ukrainian orphanages. Werner and his wife, Sylvia, moved from Highlands Ranch to the Plum Creek development, which he describes as living in the country, wildlife sightings frequent. “I love this place,” said Werner, who has served as vice president of the Players Club Villas Homeowners Association, adding that he is a fiscal conservative and a Second Amendment supporter. “I wasn’t troubled at all by the way the vote went,” he said, about the council’s recent repeal of the open carry ban. He did say, however, that there were persuasive arguments on both sides. His rallying cry is that he wants to help maintain the area’s beauty and tranquility and doesn’t support the proposed activities in the town’s regional park such s an artificial snow hill and zip lines that would change that. Why are you seeking this office? As a member of the Castle Rock town council I would work to conserve the beauty, tranquility and order of Castle Rock to ensure that it does not become an overgrown, overbuilt, noisy and impersonal municipality like some cities to the north. Our residents cherish Castle Rock’s small town and semi-rural life style. Residents of District 6 love our wide-open panoramic vistas of God’s beautiful creation. I want to help ensure that future development and expansion of the town will not diminish the quality of life we already enjoy here. What makes you the best person for the job? Not only do I have an extensive legal background, including Judge Advocate service for NATO military commanders, I have also been a lifelong student of economics and public policy. Additionally, I have acquired some of the virtues of wisdom, patience, prudence, understanding and counsel that I will draw upon while serving the Town of Castle Rock. The council, the commissions and the residents will also delight in my even-tempered congenial personality. What do you believe is the most important issue facing our town and how will you approach it, if elected? District 6’s main goal is to maintain our beautiful semi-rural lifestyle with our magnificent vistas of the countryside and the mountains. We should carefully manage our growth so as not to build so densely that we lose our breathing room. With a view to keeping traffic from becoming too heavy we look forward to the widening of Crystal Valley Parkway, frontage road improvements and building a new southern I-25 interchange. Plum Creek Residents are very concerned about any further development around and on the golf course as it would ruin the majestic setting of the course, spoil views, increase congestion and diminish property values.

What makes you the best person for the job?

My experience with both the utilities commission engaging renewable and affordable water issues, plus as a planning commission member addressing growth issues, affords me hands-on experience in two of the most important areas for the residents of Castle Rock. Both of those crucial issues will directly impact businesses and home values. Years of experience as a citizen volunteer for the town has helped me to understand how the town operates, the various departments vital to town operations, and helped me to develop a broad understanding of the various issues facing Castle Rock residents.

What do you believe is the most important issue facing your town and how will you approach it, if elected?

Securing an affordable, safe, renewable water supply and ensuring a continuation of responsible growth. The water issue has been at the forefront of discussions for years, but became an action item for the town and was the primary reason I joined the utilities commission. The town has performed admirably, but there are still major decisions to be made. Castle Rock’s current water supply is limited, and without a stable and renewable source every resident will be negatively impacted. As the economy continues to recover, more people will look to Castle Rock as their home, and growth will pick back up as the town moves to nearly double the current population of residents. In order to not only protect current residents’ home values, but to increase our primary investment, a very strategic approach to growth is vital. The balance between retail and residential growth, efficient roadways and traffic flows, emergency response, schools, water, and all other infrastructure demands a master plan with periodic revisions to ensure stable and responsible growth.

Brett J. Ford

Ford, 44, who grew up in Bountiful, Utah, said he wasn’t the best student, didn’t know what he wanted to do, and went to college because everyone did. But when he landed a job loading packages on airplanes for United Postal Service, he knew he didn’t want to do that forever. He took a job with a major financial services firm and learned that “I could do this... Magic happens when you apply yourself and pay attention.” Ford, who has bachelor’s degree in business, and has done graduate work, brought that insight with him when he mentored an inner-city teen for two years who ended up graduating from high school and then went on to college. Ford, who has been told he has an ability to talk to people, to have indepth conversations, did homework with the teen, taught him golf, and took him to business meetings — which the teen said was eyeopening, that he’d never spent time doing something like that. Ford, who has been in the financial services industry for 23 years, said his biggest achievement is his family. He said his most important work is providing a “good, safe environment for my wife and kids.” He said he is a supporter of Second Amendment rights and agrees with the re-

peal on the open carrying of weapons ban. He said he’s empathetic with people’s concerns, but doesn’t think having a ban is going to stop a criminal and that “we need to trust our fellow citizens to make good decisions.” He applauds the town for considering the proposed 200-acre Promenade development, for continuing to look for opportunities to enhance the town, bring in more resources, jobs and economic growth. He is a little leery of the town spending tax dollars for a proposed ski hill in Philip S. Miller Park Ford that maybe 1,000 out of the 50,000 residents will use. For more information: http://fordforcastlerock.com/. Why are you seeking this office? I am seeking to represent District 7 on town council as I believe there are many critical issues facing our town and we need to keep it a vibrant and wonderful place to live. I want to see smart growth that offers local employment opportunity through collaboration of diverse business leaders and respecting the rights of our citizens.

What makes you the best person for the job?

In relation to the above, I have 23 years

of business experience in financial services and have a deep understanding of the challenges facing employers and employees. I understand the practical challenges if you don’t prepare for the future and aren’t diligent with limited resources. In addition, my conservative values and my determination to stand up for what is right and being a steward to taxpayer money is what I will bring to council in representing District 7.

What do you believe is the most important issue facing your town and how will you approach it, if elected?

The most important issue is growth of our town and planning for that growth. It takes real vision to see where things will be five to 20 years from now, but it is essential in the planning process. Resources such as water and infrastructure, property rights, zoning, etc. all need to be taken into consideration. We also need to collaborate with businesses to offer local opportunities and work together in solving our issues. I strongly believe that these issues require involving all parties in the decision-making process and working toward the best outcomes. This requires mutual respect of the individuals and constituents in this process. That is what I will bring to Council as a representative of District 7.

opinions / yours and ours

Defending the right to access information “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectant.” Louis Brandeis wrote these words a century ago, before his appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court, to note the power of publicity as a cure for “social and industrial diseases” like the inequities fostered by the corporate monopolies of his time. Today all states have “sunshine laws,” a catchall term for statutes requiring openness in government — rules meant to guarantee access to public records and proceedings. Justice Brandeis would probably approve: Shed light on the workings of government and society is better off. Transparency is now such a popular concept, it’s become something of a buzzword. Mayors, school boards, city councils, the president — public officials at every level tout their transparency initiatives. Indeed, the Internet has made it possible for governments to easily share important information — budgets, agendas, minutes, databases — like never before. It’s a trend worth applauding. But not every bit of information regarded by the law as a public record is free of charge and easy to download. Far from it. And elected officials in some communities still conduct some public business behind closed doors. That’s why news and civic organizations nationwide are taking time this week —Sunshine Week — to educate the public about the importance of open government.

And that’s why, about a year ago, a littleknown, 27-year-old council of Coloradans decided to greatly expand its mission. The Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition (CFOIC) is a nonpartisan alliance of media outlets, civic groups, First Amendment lawyers and individuals founded in 1987 by Jean Otto, a long-time Rocky Mountain News editor. With a tiny budget, CFOIC volunteers mostly sponsored community forums, presented awards and filed court briefs in support of greater government transparency. Its most notable accomplishment was not a small one, helping to persuade the state judiciary to put court records online. But similar nonprofits in other states were doing much more — putting on seminars, developing online resources, reporting on issues and legislation, answering questions from citizens and journalists and playing the role of watchdog. Colorado needed the CFOIC to be more like them.

Why? The CFOIC is rooted in the belief that a healthy democracy depends on the free flow of information. To be engaged and to hold their elected officials accountable, citizens need to know what’s going on in their communities. They have a right to know. But it’s a right that shouldn’t be taken for granted. The State Integrity project recently gave Colorado an “F” for public access to information. Coloradans have no way to administratively appeal denials of access. Colorado has no agency monitoring governments for possible violations of access-to-information laws. If a Coloradan is denied access, the only recourse is to sue. This is frustrating for residents like Melody, who was denied information on how much employees of her local fire district are paid in salary and overtime. And Bill, who spent nearly $1,500 trying to show that his county commission was improperly meeting in secret. And Ruth, a state college professor who was billed $3,700 after requesting records from her employer. The news media play a vital role in using open-government laws to expose corruption, life-threatening problems or the need for policy reforms. But newsroom staffs have shrunk dramatically (or have disappeared entirely) in recent years, as have news media budgets to wage legal battles against violations of freedom-of-

information statutes. The CFOIC hopes to shore up the news media’s efforts in defense of access to information by providing Colorado journalists — and all residents — with a resource and partner. Among our initiatives: seminars and an FOI hotline supported by the state’s leading media-law attorneys. Visit our website at www.coloradofoic. org for resources, news and original reporting on open-government issues and legislation. To keep up with new entries, “like” our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter (@CoFOIC) or sign up for our emailed newsletter. We welcome new members and, of course, donations (we’re a 501(c)(3) nonprofit). You may already belong to a civic group that belongs to the CFOIC. Our growing membership includes (in addition to media organizations) the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado, the Colorado Bar Association, Colorado Common Cause, Colorado Ethics Watch, the Independence Institute, the League of Women Voters of Colorado and the Society of Professional Journalists. Members represent varied interests and political persuasions but share a common passion for government transparency. Jeffrey A. Roberts, a former reporter and editor at The Denver Post, is executive director of the Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition.

It happens to the best of us

The story of the invisible stop sign “The Invisible Man” is a science fiction novella written by H.G. Wells. An exceptional film was made based on the book, and starred Claude Rains. The film came out in 1933, and the special effects are brilliant. There was another “Invisible Man,” a novel written by Ralph Ellison, published in 1952. It is very different than Wells’ book, because the invisibility is not science fiction, but rather “it addresses the many social and intellectual issues facing black Americans early in the twentieth century.” I think most of us have wished from time to time to be invisible, to eavesdrop, maybe to see something we weren’t supposed to see, or just to be further out of sight so we can read Kerouac. Some of us may feel like we are invisible to others, even when we are not. Underappreciated, undervalued. I live near a high school. It has an invisible stop sign. If there were a stop sign it would be right there at the exit, but there’s no there there, as Virginia Woolf would say. If there were a stop sign, maybe things would be a little less hazardous at lunchtime, and when the kids get out of school for the day. But since there is no sign, it’s hazardous. Let me tell you. You probably wondered where I was going with this. I am here today to do a public service. Here it is: go around. Maybe even way around. Or just don’t go near the school at that time at all. Sooner or later something unfortunate is going to happen, and I just hope it doesn’t happen to a white station wagon, or to a car filled with Brownies. I thought I had it figured out, when they have their lunch break. Not today. It was nonstop out of the parking lot, although one kid in a truck paused, and I was ready to give him a thumb’s up, and

then he turned right in front of me as if: I were invisible. The point is what? I think the point is to concede. No one wants to be scolded, told what to do or what not to do, so I say: “Kids, just keep on doing what you are doing, and the rest of us will adjust.” I know what I am going to do, and I think it will work for everyone else. Avoid the area, at least when the students have the cards. I can schedule my dental appointments at another time. And my veterinarian appointments at another time. I can do the same thing with my optometrist. Her office is on the other side of the school too. Or I could find those services in the other direction. Change dentists and doctors. My dentist can simply forward all of my records to a new office. It’s as simple as that. But really all I have to do is avoid the area altogether for three hours on every school day. That’s not asking much, is it? And if we all re-schedule our lives and appointments out of deference to an invisible sign and the young motorists who ignore it, at least we won’t be in touch with their insurance agents, or a body shop, or a chiropractor. See what I mean? Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at craigmarshallsmith@ comcast.net.

Recently I was watching a professional golf event on television and was reminded that even though these people are the very best in the world, they too can have a bad day or round, a terrible hole, or just a horrific shot or two. It does and can happen to the best of us. So many people I talk with have expectations of perfection. The perfect house, the perfect family, the perfect job, the perfect performance or the perfect relationship. And yes, some of the folks even talk about that perfect golf shot. What we have to remember is that even the professionals in any sport, career, or hobby have off days, tough times and bad shots. Here’s the difference, the professionals know that there will be a miscue from time to time. And although they strive for perfection, it’s really about achieving excellence. The difference between being a professional or playing at the highest level possible and the rest of the population is that in most cases they expect and understand that sometimes things will go wrong. It can happen to them, it can happen to you, it happens to the best of us and the rest of us. The thing is we can’t let those temporary setbacks or minor mistakes take us completely out of our game. Sure we will make a mistake, everyone does. Yes, we will have a bad or sad day, we all do.

THE NEWS-PRESS

Sometimes we will watch an event on television or a live event and we will witness a professional athlete, singer, or dancer make an error, miss a note or lyric, and maybe miss a step or two. It happens. And although sometimes we see a minor league response or immature behavior from a major league player, in most cases they handle it with grace and dignity. They may be burning inside from the mistake, but that is only because they know they can do better and want more out of themselves. Things happen, life happens, errors happen, and lapses in judgment happen. And they happen to the best of us from time to time. The question is, do we handle it like a rookie or like a seasoned professional? Do we overreact and make things worse? Or do we respond and make things better? I love Norton continues on Page 9

Combating sexual assaults in the military n

We must end the scourge of sexual assaults in our military. When young women decide to serve their nation in the armed ews services, they should never be forced to n- live under a cloud of intimidation or sexual nal- harassment. This is a challenge the military rce must confront and overcome. miDuring my own military career, I have he witnessed quite a number of challenges that the military had to confront. Each oic. time it overcame the obstacles and always port-emerged as a more effective fighting force gis- as a result. ke” For example, in 1972, when I joined r the U.S. Army, I found an Army that was fractured along racial lines with its combat effectiveness further compromised by an c)(3) epidemic of drug and alcohol abuse. The combination of these factors produced an oup Army plagued by disciplinary problems, poor morale and very low retention rates. to This was not just an Army problem but was vil evident in all of the branches of military ado service. ause, The Army responded aggressively to nce resolve those problems and today, when of I talk to the newest generation of young al people serving in uniform, the challenges that our military faced in the 1970s is unand thinkable to them today. mon But today, our military is confronted

Hotel Continued from Page 1

“We thought it was a shoe-in,” said Fred Edison, chair of Castle Rock’s historic preservation board, which applied to get the hotel on the list. He said the building is significant for several reasons. “I don’t know of many communities that have two 19th century wooden hotels,” he said about the City Hotel, and the Owens House — a nearby former hotel from the same era that has been renovated. Bob Lowenberg, a retired Douglas County High School history teacher and author of “Castle Rock: A Grassroots History,” said that very few Colorado hotels from that period have been preserved and for Castle Rock to have two is special. But Edison said he thinks that what may have kept it off the list is that Preservation Inc. had become aware of a renovation plan for the building by its owner, making it in less danger than others nominated for the list. “That was definitely part of it (the decision),” said Rachel Parris, programs manager of Denver-based Colorado Preservation Inc. But Parris said it was also about competition. About five sites are picked each year and there were 30 nominations.

watching a professional athlete after they have made an error, fumbled a football, or missed an easy lay-up. If you watch the true professionals, or the cameraman captures the moment on television, you will see them all replaying the situation on the field or on the sideline. You can watch as a golfer who hit his ball into the water, stand in the same spot, swinging again, visualizing a different outcome and knowing what he or she did wrong. They don’t throw the club, blame others or point fingers. They just know that errors and mistakes happen and they happen to

with a new and very different challenge, an epidemic of sexual assaults that is again, seriously compromising the combat effectiveness of our military. Today, our soldiers, Marines, sailors, and airmen, are among the most accomplished of their generation. The standards of the young men and women who serve in our military have never been higher than at any time in our nation’s history. One fundamental factor that has driven up recruiting standards has been that many of the military’s occupational career fields have been opened up to women. By adding women into the mix we have increased the pool of eligible recruits raising the standards to make our military the most professional that our country has ever had. Unfortunately, with the increase

The problem now for the City Hotel is those renovation plans Preservation Inc. heard about — to make it into a performing arts center — are on hold. Tim White, a Castle Rock resident since the 1970s and founder and president of White Construction Group, had the idea to make the hotel into the town’s arts center, with the front of it restored to look like it once did, but then adding space to the back of it for a theatre, art gallery and class space. He said he approached the council about it, but “got some resistance.” He said there was a reluctance to provide funding if there was any risk involved. White said a project like this does require a “mechanism,” to help the private sector accomplish it. It takes council members who will “think outside of the box,” he said. “I haven’t forgotten about it at all,” he said about the project. But he also said he is interested in the outcome of the town council election, hoping the new board will have more interest in pursuing the project. White been involved in the design or building of various buildings in Castle Rock — such as town hall and the police and fire buildings — and has a long interest in the arts and in historic restoration. Edison said the historic preservation board plans to apply again to try to get the hotel on next year’s list. And White said there are no plans to demolish the building. So, so far, things are status quo.

the best of us, even the very best of us. We don’t want to go out looking to make a mistake; that is not the message. The message is that when challenges come our way, when things do not go according to our plan or meet our expectations, we simply need to recognize that it happens from time to time and we need to adapt and course correct, learn from it and move on towards the pursuit and achievement of our endeavors. Does it happen to you? How do you handle it? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com and when we learn how to adapt to the `things’ that happen in our lives, it will be a better than good week. Michael Norton is a resident of Highlands Ranch, the former president of the Zig Ziglar Corporation and the CEO/ Founder of www.candogo.com.

in women serving in uniform there has been a reprehensible increase in the number of sexual assaults and a culture within our military that, knowingly or unknowingly, has tolerated it. Members of the U.S. House and Senate have been debating how best to combat the epidemic of sexual assaults that have plagued our military. We seem to have fallen into two camps. The first supports the leadership of our military in wanting to resolve allegations of sexual assaults within the chain-ofcommand. The second believes that we should have independent military prosecutors deal with sexual assault cases to remove the stigma of reporting the assaults and encourage women to feel comfortable in stepping forward to bring their assailants to justice. I strongly believe that any allegations of sexual assault should be reported to authorities outside of the chain-of-command and thus should be procedurally treated separately from all other violations listed under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Questions of sexual assault, regarding military coworkers within the same unit, are always highly sensitive in nature and my concern is that a unit commander

Survey Continued from Page 1

Mutton said she’d like to see separate surveys given to parents, students, DCSD employees and community members. “An election is not a survey,” she said. “I think we need a survey in order to provide transparency regarding the support for these initiatives, and also accountability that the changes being implemented are successful. “With 70 percent of Douglas County residents not having children in the schools, parents are a minority. Parent voices have been lost with the addition of outside enti-

might feel pressure to resolve a problem that he or she might feel reflects poorly on their own leadership or be an embarrassment to the reputation of their command, and that this could lead to cases not being properly vetted and prosecuted. The net result could be fewer victims having the confidence to step forward and to testify against their attackers. This is why I support taking the reporting of sexual assaults outside of the chain-of-command and will work with Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) to ensure these allegations can be investigated by independent military authorities, and if necessary, prosecuted accordingly. This is not a partisan issue. This is about protecting the young men and women who step forward to risk their lives in defense of our freedom. I am proud to stand with my Democratic colleagues to ensure we end the scourge of sexual assaults in our military. U.S. Representative Mike Coffman is a retired combat veteran with a combined 21 years of military service between the U.S. Army, Army Reserve, U.S. Marine Corps and the Marine Corps Reserve. He is a member of the House Armed Services Committee.

ties influencing our school board election.” Mutton thinks a survey is particularly needed given the controversy surrounding the board’s policies and what she views as one-way communication from the district to the community. “I would say our community is more divided than ever, and it’s really hurting our schools,” she said. “It’s time we work together and restore that trust in our school district; surveys are a critical step in that process.” DCSD, she noted, “should be accountable to taxpayers about what the district is doing.” “We keep on hearing it’s going to be done,” she said. “I think people are getting frustrated by that same response. We really need a timeline and a commitment.”

Tobler withdraws from council race By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@coloradocommunitymedia. com Incumbent Castle Rock Town Councilmember Jennifer Green, representing District 3, now has only three instead of four challengers in the April 1 election. Candidate Brian Tobler — a commercial banker whose platform included championing conservative principles and being a voice for capitalism and healthy economic growth — recently withdrew from the race to help Green’s chances. “I don’t want to split the vote. Jennifer Green and I see things similarly and I am comfortable supporting her reelection,” he stated in a March 3 email. District 3 includes the Red Hawk neighborhood and a portion of The Meadows. There are four seats available in the April 1 election and now a total of 13 candidates. And there is no possibility of write-in candidates as the deadline to file an affidavit of intent with the town clerk was Feb. 28. Remaining in the District 3 race along

with Green, who is running for a second term, are Jennifer B. Bennett, Stephen Muller and Gordon C. Rollins. In District 5, the Escavara and Castle Oaks areas, incumbent Renee Valentine is running for a second term. Her two challengers are Floyd Bacon and Charles Fletcher. Candidates in the District 3 and 5 races will be profiled next week. The District 6 and 7 candidates are profiled on pages 6 and 7 of this week’s paper. The 2014 election will occur by mail. Ballots will go out to active registered voters in mid-March, according to information from the town. There are no town-wide issues on this ballot so voters who do not live in one of the four districts will not receive a ballot. Voters within this year’s voting districts who do not receive a ballot, or who need their ballot mailed to an address other than the one at which they are registered, should call the Town Clerk’s Office, 303-660-1367 or email smisare@CRgov.com.

DCSD board interviews candidates District on target to fill director vacancy in late March By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Douglas County School Board President Kevin Larsen said the board aims to meet its late March deadline filling Justin Williams’ vacant District F seat. Under Colorado law, a new board member must be named 60 days after the vacancy was declared. If there is no appointment by the 60th day, the board president must make the appointment. The board accepted Williams’ resignation at the Jan. 21 meeting. “We’re doing everything we can to fall in that time frame,” Larsen said. “Even if it reverts to me to make a decision, my decision would be reflective of what the board decides.” Board members interviewed 10 candidates during the March 3 Board Unplugged meeting at Parker’s Cimarron Middle School.

Larsen said they also planned later to interview an 11th candidate, David Ray, who was traveling and could not attend the meeting in Parker. Candidates include former teacher and stay-at-home mom Leah Bliesmer, retired teacher and Community Accountability Committee organizer Gary Colley, Parker salon owner Suzanne Cortright, real estate agent Gerald Elwell, attorney and American Academy board member Shaylee Holland, investment firm CEO and DCSD long-range planning committee member Dilpreet Jammu, former DCSD employee Ray, former District Accountability Committee member Richard Robbins, retired teacher Mary Strain, former District Accountability Committee member and local Republicans captain Franceen Thompson and Avaya engineer Raymond Varela. The District F seat represents portions of eastern and southern Parker and some of Elbert County. The term will expire in November 2015, at which time the board member chosen for the seat will need to seek election or step down.

Grand opening of exhibit slated

A new exhibit at Castle Rock Museum, 420 Elbert St., focuses on the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Camp established near Castle Rock in 1934 — and a grand opening is planned from 1 to 3 p.m. March 22. One of the main attractions: Arapahoe Community College students, using photographs, have created a three-dimensional model of the camp, which will be on display. There will also be several items used at the CCC camp in Morrison. According to information from the museum, on July 25, 1934, Company 1845 of the Civilian Conservation Corps arrived at McMurdo Gulch just northeast of Castle Rock. The camp’s purpose was to provide forestry and water conservation and management, but also to give employment to young men, ages 17 to 25, during a period racked with unemployment. They got food, housing and clothing, but built their own housing, living in tents until barracks were erected. Income was $30 a month, $25 of which was automatically taken out of their pay and sent home to a parent or responsible party. The camp lasted until the outbreak of World War II. The CCC employees did soil conservation, tree planting, flood control, and road building. The corps planted more than three billion trees to help hold soil during the Dust Bowl days and serve as windbreaks. For more information, call 303-814-3164.

Area Marine earns Purple Heart Proposed power

line to go through Parker, Castle Pines

HRHS security worker injured in Iraq in 2004 By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia@coloradocommunitymedia.com It’s been almost a decade since an improvised explosive device knocked Brandon Davis unconscious in Fallujah, imparting a brain injury that would eventually lead to a medical discharge. A little more than nine years later, the Highlands Ranch High School security staffer was finally awarded a Purple Heart that he has been seeking for years. “I had to jump through a few hoops to get this,” Davis said. The lance corporal said he worked with his former colonel with the Wounded Warrior Regiment to apply for the award. “It means a lot.” The Purple Heart is awarded to military members who are injured or killed while serving. It is the oldest military decoration awarded by the U.S. military. Davis, 30, said he grew up dreaming of enlisting with the Marines, like his father. He joined when he was 19 in 2003, bypassing an opportunity to go to school. “I gave up wrestling scholarships to enlist,” Davis said. “After 9/11, I knew I was going to join. It just didn’t seem like there was another option for me.” The former Marine was deployed to Iraq from June 24, 2004 to Feb. 17, 2005. On Oct. 17, 2004, Davis was driving a Hummer near a military base in Fallujah when the IED launched by insurgents hit the back of the vehicle. The resulting blast damaged the left side of his head and he sustained a traumatic brain injury. After a few minutes of being unconscious, Davis’ platoon mates

125-mile-long line would bring power from wind farms on eastern plains By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@coloradocommunitymedia.com

Highlands Ranch High School security officer Brandon Davis was injured while deployed in Iraq in 2004. The Marine was just recently awarded a Purple Heart. Photo by Hannah Garcia shook him awake before they tended to others who were wounded, including some who lost limbs, he said. There were six people wounded in the blast, according to Davis. Davis finished out his deployment, although he was medically separated, and was eventually honorably discharged for medical reasons in 2006. Eventually, he ended up working security at Highlands Ranch High School. Like many military members after deployment, Davis, who specialized in motor transport and also trained as a scout sniper, found that his training did not translate to the

civilian world. “The qualifications don’t transfer, and if they do, I haven’t met anyone who has (benefitted from it),” Davis said, adding that other military acquaintances have not had much luck finding jobs with police or fire departments. In the months that followed the explosion, Davis said he dealt with memory loss and ringing in his ears on top of shoulder and back injuries. Despite that, he said he would enlist again given the chance. “Other than that, it hasn’t really affected me,” Davis said. “I don’t regret any of it.”

A proposed power line that will run about 125 miles from northeast Colorado would wind through both Parker and Highlands Ranch. The line, which would go through Aurora, Parker, then west through Surrey Ridge and into the Highland Ranch open space, is needed to carry power from wind farms and to increase the system’s reliability, said Mark Stutz, spokesman for Xcel Energy. The 345 kV transmission line would run parallel — about 75 feet away from — the existing 230kV line constructed in the 1960s. The poles for the new line will be about 100 feet tall in most places — same height as those of the existing line. “(The line is) important for delivering new generating sources on the eastern plains… and provides for better system reliability so we’ll be in service at all times,” Stutz said. He said currently there are about a dozen existing wind farms and they expect more in the next couple years. Public meetings have been

scheduled in Parker on March 17 and 20. Stutz said there will be experts available on such topics as line location, construction issues and health experts to address any concerns. Derek Holscher, principal right of way agent for Xcel, said the line would be located in the company’s right-of-way corridor, which is about 210 feet wide. He said when the line, as proposed, comes into Douglas County, it will head south through the Ponderosa Hills subdivision, and then by Canterbury Golf Course and through the Villages of Parker. Heading west, it will cross Parker Road near the 20 Mile Road intersection. It will then go past Parker Pavillions shopping center and Bradbury Ranch subdivision. From then on, it goes primarily through open space, except for the Surrey Ridge area west of Interstate 25, he said. The line terminates at the Daniels Park substation, which is just north the City of Castle Pines’ northern border near Monarch Boulevard. It’s anticipated construction would take place possibly in 2017, and it would be in service in 2019.

Tulo steps to plate for kids There’s no question that cancer treatment takes a toll on the mind and body of its patients (and as a breast cancer survivor, I can relate). From diagnosis through treatment, the resistance and fortitude of cancer patients is tested. For patients at Children’s Hospital Colorado’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, an upcoming trip was designed specifically to escape these pressures and allow them to focus on just being a kid. Colorado Rockies All-Star shortstop and friend of Children’s Colorado, Troy Tulowitzki, is underwriting an all-expense paid trip to the Colorado Rockies spring training camp for more than 20 patients and their medical caregivers. While in Scottsdale, Ariz., the children will enjoy an exhibition game, meet-andgreet sessions with players and coaches and even some one-on-one downtime with the players. “Last year, I presented Troy with the proposal to fund this trip and he immediately agreed,” said Jim Kellogg, vice president of community and retail operations for the Colorado Rockies. “That’s just the kind of guy he is, he genuinely wants to help and give back wherever he can.”

Denver actor shares in Oscar glow

By Virginia Grantier

It might not vgrantier@ colorado have been a communitymedia.com pretty picture to some people, seeing a 9-yearold girl, from a struggling family, scrubbing walls for 25 cents an hour so she could pay for a pair of shoes. “But it made me what I am today,” said artist and art teacher Katherine McNeill, 72, of Larkspur, owner of McNeill Fine Art Gallery, 363 Village Square Lane, Castle Pines. Now, there are a multitude of pictures, some valued in the multi-thousands of dollars. On a recent night, a nearby restaurant, Duke’s, had a waiting line, so wait-listers wandered into McNeill’s gallery to drink in the art — and there were also drinks. McNeill offers a glass of wine, as well as a tour. The gallery has some of her paintings, many of them aspentree scenes in oil. There are painted words on the painted tree trunks, meant to be like the wood carvings that Western Slope sheepherders long ago left on trees — now called “shepherd’s art,” she said. Other McNeill paintings are far and wide — in Europe, Latin America, Hawaii, elsewhere. She has several artists’ work in her gallery — all Colorado artists — and stories about them: like the sculptor who can’t talk anymore, the result of a serious illness, but still creates his art; and the jewelry maker who mines his own topaz and other gems and cuts them himself. But there’s also her story. McNeill’s parents and seven children left Canada in 1951. Her jack-of-all-trades dad was hoping for better financial opportunities. She said things remained hard. She dreamed of becoming a singer or ice skater, never thought about art, although she liked to work with her hands. She fell in love right after high school — is still married to Robert McNeill after almost 54 years, and started raising kids, and working various jobs — was a cake decorator at one point, a hair dresser, seamstress and dental technician. But eventually, she took an art class so she could paint the unique old oak trees in Santa Rosa, and she’d spend evenings sitting on the living room floor by the fireplace painting while her doting husband sat near her. Robert managed a drug store, long hours, and eventually they decided to make a change so he could have more time with the kids. They bought a feed store in Woodland Park and moved to Colorado. So, for a few years she was loading hay

and grain into vehicles and then sometimes in the store she’d paint. She said her first commission happened when a customer saw her painting and asked McNeill to paint Pikes Peak for him. Then another admirer, George Peak, a successful investor, saw her work. He told her he wanted to pay for her to be able to study and have time to paint. She found out he had a habit of using his money to help. He had paid for college tuition for a couple of waitresses after finding out their stories, she remembers. “He gave me an opportunity,” she said. She started studying with instructors. But later, the McNeills lost their store. She also lost her desire to paint for a while. They moved to Denver. She would get a teacher’s aide position and later a receptionist job at an environmental consulting firm and again just painted on the side. What helped launch her art career happened after she learned there was a call out for artwork for the state’s capitol building. In her off-hours, while her husband did all the housework, she painted a 76-inch-wide painting of Mt. Wilson. It didn’t win a spot, but in 1993 the firm she worked for needed artwork for a new office. She told them they may not know that she painted, but she had a painting they might like. They liked: Bought it for $2,500. But tough times weren’t over. Robert had started a new job in Nevada, then lost it. She, meanwhile, had given notice at her job to join him and her firm already had hired someone else. Now they both, getting on in years, were unemployed. She said on her way to her last day of work she remembers crying, that she just wanted to paint, and remembers asking God to write something in the clouds telling her what to do. When she got to work, the company president called her into his office, told her to sit down, and then slammed his fist on his desk. He asked her what in the world had she been doing all this years — why hadn’t she been painting, that she could make a living doing it. He then commissioned her to do eight paintings for the office.

Colorado native Scott Takeda wasn’t able to attend the Academy Awards Sunday night, but he has come a long way from being a lambkin at Fort Collins High School. The Hollywood actor-director had a vested interest in the March 2 Oscar results. He had a part in the popular “Dallas Buyers Club,” the much-acclaimed film that earned a Best Actor Oscar for Matthew McConaughey and a Best Supporting Actor award for Jared Leto during the 86th Academy Awards ceremony. Takeda remains a true Coloradan, living in his beloved Bonnie Brae neighborhood in south Denver. “My family’s here,” he said. “I married my very lovely bride. When I’m not in front of the camera, I’m behind the camera. I’m used to flying to do corporate films. I’ve (flown) 17,000 miles in six weeks.” Takeda said that he has six agents around the country who scout potential film roles for him. As for landing his part in “Dallas Buyers Club,” he said, “My Louisiana agent contacted me about that role. Probably a couple of weeks passed. I got the callback when landing in Denver. I walked off my flight and happened to see a flight leaving for New Orleans and walked on that flight.” As far as working with McConaughey, who lost 40-some pounds for his role, Takeda said that surprisingly the hunky actor “had a lot of energy.” “I found him to be a complete gentleman, right up there with Will Ferrell. (He was) really easy to work with. I was seeing the effects of his weight loss, but it was impossible for him not to be incredibly nice. He stayed in character, but during periods in the makeup trailer, he would drop character.”

So we might all better understand Paula Burger tells story of growing up a Polish Jew during Nazi reign By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com “In July of 1944, the order from Russia arrived. The Nazis had been driven back, the Bielski Otriad (partisan detachment) was instructed to disband, and all the survivors — Jews who hid in the Naliboki forest for years — were supposed to return to Novogrudek, Poland. The partisans were to destroy all remnants of the camp to prevent retreating German soldiers hiding in the woods from setting up a base…” Well-known Denver painter Paula Burger begins her story at a turning point in her young life, when after two years, more than 1,250 Jews who had hidden in the forest — including Paula, age 9, her little brother, Isaac and her father — marched out in a long line and headed to points around the world. Her new book: “Paula’s Window: Papa, the Bielski Partisans and a Life Unexpected” has occupied much of the past three years. “I always had it in my head, I just kept putting it off,” she said on March 5. She has been speaking at schools and to local groups for some years and when she was ready to write, she enlisted Andrea Jacobs, who “has a heart that hears,” to assist her. They sat at Burger’s kitchen table every Sunday to record Burger’s memories — a difficult task for both and especially draining for Burger, Jacobs comments in an Afterword. Throughout, one is conscious of the artist’s eye and awareness as she describes a happy “Paula’s Window” by painter Paula day when she was about Burger is the recently-published story of 7, walking with her faher holocaust experiences, her escape ther in the snow. She and subsequent life in America.Courtesy remembers her mother Photo and the parents’ grocery store. Then, the Nazis invaded, there was a massacre and Jews who survived were confined to a ghetto. Burger clutched her doll as they were herded away from their ranch. There were almost no children in the ghetto, she recalls. They had been killed. Her father had a network of friends and probably had met the two older Bielski brothers, Tuvia and Zus, before the war, she writes. He almost immediately began to plan an escape and she recalls promising her mother that she would care for Isaac if anything happened to her parents — a heavy responsibility for a 7-year-old. Her father was gone for long periods and one day, the Nazis took her mother away. Paula never saw her again. Her father sent for her and her brother. A friendly farmer smuggled them out of the ghetto in an empty barrel. He took them to the forest that would be their home for two years, including two hard winters. She tells of the leader, Tuvia Bielski, who held this group together and was credited with saving many lives. (A movie called “Defiance,” about this remarkable story, was recently released on DVD.) Burger’s book continues to tell of her life after the rescue, the eventual move to America and her later development as an accomplished painter. (She has exhibited work throughout the metro area, including in Littleton, Greenwood Village and Highlands Ranch.) As the book developed and her speaking commitments grew, she says she has ceased painting for going on three years now. “I just can’t get my head around it,” she says. She speaks several times a week, including regular visits to Ponderosa High School in Parker over the past four years. She hopes to add book clubs now. “I’m committed to do it,” she said. “I have crazy dreams. It’s what I do. A lot of people (who have had this experience) can’t do it.” “Paula’s Window” is available at Tattered Cover, where she published it, and through Amazon. She can be reached at Burgerart@comcast.net.

The Goblin Market awaits thee Christina Rosetti’s Victorian imagination takes center stage By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia. com “Morning and evening Maids heard the goblins cry: `Come buy our orchard fruits Come buy, come buy: Apples and quinces, Lemons and oranges…’” The beginning of Christina Rosetti’s long poem, a cautionary tale, leads sisters Lizzie and Laura into a contest of who can recite/ repeat a long list of fruit, adding one each time. “Goblin Market” is a curious, intriguing theater piece by Polly Pen and Peggy Harmon, based on the Rosetti poem, written in 1862 by the famous British poet. It is a good choice for the small, storefront Spark Theater at 985 Santa Fe Dr. in the Arts District. It requires two actor/singers and is done using very simple props in the 40-seat space. The script arrived with a score and Spark had to commission a trio of musicians — Rob Lowe on piano, Sadie Van Vranken on violin and James Bauman on cello — to perform throughout the production. The performance is mainly sung, using

The language is quaint, Victorian and lends itself to more than one interpretation —such as the sexual repressions and ideas about temptation, sin and redemption felt by young Victorian gentlewomen. I strongly recommend that audience members take 15 minutes to read through the text before you go — it’s readily available online. It adds a great deal to one’s enjoyment of the performance. Meredith Young plays caring Lizzie and Krista Kuhn is impulsive sister Laura, who is led astray. Their trained voices blend well and enunciation is clear but the elaborate turn of phrase in the poetry — standard for the mid-19th century — gives the theater lover an experience akin to getting one’s ears in tune at the start of a Shakespearean performance. Director Amanda Flageolle has blocked the movement as well as possible, given the space limitations and lighting is managed nicely. It’s an unusual night at the theater — recommended for the adventurous.

Iconic 20th century art on display Modern Masters come to Denver Art Museum By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com Chagall, Dali, Gaugin, Kahlo, Lichtenstein, Matisse, Miro, Picasso, Pollack, Stella, Still, Warhol, and more are there — each representing the major developments in modern art from the late 19th century to the present. The Denver Art Museum is proud to display works by more than 40 artists in an exhibit called “Modern Masters: 20 Century Icons from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery,” exhibited through June 8. The Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo is home to one of the finest collections of 20th century art in the nation and has loaned many of its works to the Denver Art Museum for the exhibit. Dean Sobel, director of the Clyfford Still Museum (located next door to the DAM at 12th and Bannock), has curated this important exhibit. Sobel’s connection: Still had a major exhibit at the Albright-Knox in 1959 — the largest in his career. He subsequently donated 31 works to that institution — and the Still Museum offers a related show, “1959,” with

As one enters the second level galleries in the Hamilton Building, a series of large illuminated photos of these intense artists at work sets the scene.

Apple Award winner teaches skills for a lifetime Journalism educator credits kids for program’s successes By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Mountain Vista High School journalism teacher Mark Newton knows most of his students won’t work in the rapidly changing profession on which he’s focused his life’s work. But he’s confident the skills gleaned through a better understanding of journalism will bolster them on any path they choose. “Sure, I want journalists,” Newton said. “But I realized a long time ago it really doesn’t matter what you’re going to do. I’m working to create people who will use the skills of journalism to set themselves apart in whatever they want to do. They’re going to understand the First Amendment, freedom, responsibility. The skills of journalism are what every employer wants.” That passion for his subject matter and students earned Newton the 2014 Secondary Teacher Apple Award from the Douglas County School District, announced during a March 1 ceremony at the downtown Denver Sheraton. The MVHS journalism program, called the VISTAj, includes the yearbook, a broadcast program and a news magazine. The National Scholastic Press Association selected its Eagle Eye newsmagazine for the 2013Pacemaker Award — its highest honor. Even with an Apple Award in hand, Newton deflects credit for the program’s suc-

Mountain Vista High School journalism teacher and Apple Award winner Mark Newton consults with senior and VISTAj copy editor AJ Stowell. Courtesy photo cess. “I got it because I have great kids,” he said. “The students in our program are so exceptional. This just celebrates who they are and their voice.” The six-year MVHS teacher, married to

a Denver Public Schools teacher and the father of two grown children, also is president of the national Journalism Education Association. He believes journalism’s lessons dovetail with the shift in education, and DCSD’s

emphasis on the four C’s — creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication. “The journalism we’re teaching today is the kind of education everybody wants,” Newton said. “It’s authentic. It’s real world. It’s taking everything you’ve learned and making a product people will judge. “A yearbook is 340 pages that are blank in August. By March, it’s a book with thousands of pictures and thousands of stories.” That, Newton said, stands in stark contrast to an English essay typically viewed by only a student, teacher and parent. Newton encourages his students to test their own boundaries. That may include repeatedly contacting the White House to request an interview with President Obama, or on a local scale, supporting them when they pulled together a successful fall 2013 school board candidate forum. “If you don’t ask, you’re never going to get the opportunity,” said Newton, who’s also there to help them learn from the experience of failure. “I say, `I’m your trampoline.’ You’re going to hit the ground, but you’re going to bounce higher. You learn just as much from a loss as you do from a victory.” Not knowing which any given day will bring is part of what Newton loves about his job. “It’s different every day, but the core of journalism is still the same,” he said. “I feel that way about education, too, and I love that about each kid. Every day, they’re different but they’re kind of the same.”

North Star students’ Spanish skills recognized Four girls earn awards during foreign language educators’ conference By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com In its eighth year, North Star Academy’s emphasis on foreign language is paying dividends. Four students’ passion for Spanish language recently earned them and their teacher recognition at the Feb. 21 annual Colorado Congress of Foreign Language Teachers spring conference in Loveland. Students Logan Derosia and Megan Reiner received an award for their submission to the Student Middle School Intermediate Spanish Video contest. Amanda Nelson earned top honors for the 8th Grade Spanish Student Essay contest, and Miranda Silva also was recognized for her participation in the essay contest. Their teacher, Linette Santiago, also earned recognition during the conference. “One of the hallmarks of our charter school is our Spanish language program,” North Star Academy principal Kendra Hossfeld said. The program aims to not only teach the

language, but inspire students to become “really thoughtful members of society and understand and appreciate different cultures,” she said. That exposure to the language and culture begins in kindergarten, where students are immersed in Spanish 30 minutes each day. “I think people are starting to see the benefits of learning Spanish at such a young age,” Hossfeld said. Derosia appreciates that learning Spanish is a must at the Parker charter school. “Most schools have (foreign language) as an elective,” she said. “But we require it. “I know that for high school, I’m going to be way more prepared.” It also will help her beyond high school, Derosia believes. “I’m hoping to be a news reporter,” she said. “I think being able to talk to people in Spanish will be very helpful.” By 2050, the Association of Spanish Language Academies estimates 10 percent of the world’s population will speak Spanish, and the United States will be the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world. Currently, the US ranks fifth. Studies also show bilingual children are better at problem solving and perform better on literacy tests.

Jaguars season comes to close in Sweet 16 Rock Canyon to graduate four starters from this year’s squad By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia. com It could be difficult to recognize Rock Canyon’s girls basketball team next season. The Jaguars’ 2013-14 campaign ended March 4 with a 59-43 Sweet Sixteen loss at Cherry Creek in the Class 5A state playoffs. Rock Canyon finished the season with a 17-8 record but will lose stalwart senior starters Lexy Thorderson, Morgan Roos, Erin McClarie and Kendall Koslosky to graduation. The four seniors accounted for 49.3 points per game this season, or 78.3 percent of the Rock Canyon scoring. The four were also credited with 74.2 percent of the Jaguars’ rebounding. “Our seniors were definitely the heart and soul of the scoring of the team,” said coach Becky Mudd. “We are really going to miss them. But I hope what they started here is something we can build on. “It’s going to take lots of hard work next season. … We don’t have the size coming back, we’re going to have to play a little bit of a different style with a more guard-oriented team. It’s just building each year on what we do so that they know what they are doing and have experience doing it.” In that final playoff encounter against Cherry Creek, the Jaquars learned that patience sometimes can be an asset in mounting a comeback. Creek, fueled by the inside play of Mikaela Eppard, went on a 10-0 run midway through the first period and forced the Jaguars to play from behind the rest of the game. Eppard scored 17 of her game-high 24 points in the first half as the Bruins flirted with leads of 10 points or more for the remainder of the game. The closest Rock Canyon could come was seven points with 2:48 remaining in the third quarter. The Jaguars

forced a myriad of turnovers in the third quarter but many times failed to capitalize with points off those turnovers. “Eppard was just penetrating well and getting all the shots underneath,” said Mudd. “We just gave up too many layups in the first half and had to play from behind. “We got it down to seven but then they built it right back up again. We just couldn’t close the gap. … We just didn’t finish well around the basket. We were rushing. “Instead of working each offensive possession, we were trying to do too much too fast. When we would get turnovers we needed to come down and get points out of them. We were pressing and trying to do it all at once.” Thorderson, Rock Canyon’s leading scorer, was limited to two free throws in the first half by Cherry Creek freshman Laura Pranger but she led the Jaguars with 11 points in the game. McClarie and Roos each had 10 points. Mudd, who took over as Rock Canyon’s coach this season after a successful tenure at Denver Christian, admitted the change was a hard adjustment. “Great kids, awesome basketball players and they bring so many skills and stuff to the table,” she said. “It was hard on the kids to change some of the things they were doing when we came in. I know it set them back a little. I hurt for the kids. They didn’t get to continue on. “They had high expectations for the year. The Cherry Creek loss didn’t meet those expectations. Looking ahead, we obviously want to continue doing what these girls started … to bring Rock Canyon around to a good basketball school.”

Valor girls avenge loss to reach semis Eagles win 16th straight, top Sand Creek in Great 8 By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com Games against Sand Creek, at least this season, seem to have a major impact on the Valor Christian girls basketball team. Sand Creek embarrassed the Eagles in a 67-34 defeat Jan. 3, dropping Valor’s record to 7-3. Since, the Eagles, have won 16 straight games.

The 16th win in the streak may have been the sweetest, a 67-60 retaliation victory over the Scorpions in a March 8 Great 8 game at the Denver Coliseum which earned the Eagles their first trip in school history to the Class 4A Final Four. Valor (23-3) will face undefeated Broomfield (26-0) March 13 in a 5:30 p.m. semifinal contest at the CU Events Center. “That was the turning point of our season,” said Valor coach Sherryl Klosterman, referencing the Jan. 3 meeting between the two schools.

Valor Christian’s boys basketball team, like almost all high school squads, struggles when shots are not falling. The top-seeded Eagles shot poorly when the game was on the line in a March 8 Great 8 contest against Pueblo East at the Denver Coliseum and were ushered out of the Class 4A state playoffs after suffering a 62-56 overtime loss to the squad from Colorado’s Steel City. “They put the ball in the hole more than we did,” said Valor coach Ronnie DeGray. “Hats off to them. They made plays late. We shot the ball well all season. In the games we didn’t win, it was because we didn’t shoot the ball well.” Valor, which finishes the season with a 21-5 record, shot 36.2 percent for the game but was a mere 2-for-10 in the overtime and 1-for-4 during the final four minutes of the fourth quarter. The Eagles were 3-for-7 at the foul line down the stretch of regulation time while trying to hold the lead. “They were a tough team,” added DeGray. “We had a couple runs but we knew they would come back.” Valor had an 11-point lead in the first half and was ahead 47-43 with 1:56 remaining in the fourth quarter.

It looked like the Eagles were going to escape with a victory, but Pueblo East’s Dylan Gavin, who scored a game-high 27 points, used a screen to drive down the lane for a layup with

one second showing on the clock to tie the game at 49. East made just one field goal in the four-minute extra session Boys continues on Page 25

but converted 12-of-15 free throws to notch the upset victory. Garrett Baggett led Valor’s offense with

18 points, Chase Foster scored 12 and Christian McCaffrey added 10 points. Foster, the 6-foot-5 senior who led Valor in scoring on the season and is bound for San Francisco next fall, had trouble getting untracked in the early morning contest and was 3-of-12 from the field. “He’s been our guy all season and we

tried to put the ball in his hands and let him create for everybody else but sometimes the ball falls for you and sometimes not,” said DeGray. Valor, a 2013 Class 4A state runner-up, will graduate eight seniors off its roster. “It’s been an unbelievable ride for those seniors,” pointed out DeGray. “They worked

so hard for this program. They came out and they did everything asked of them. “Our goal was to get back to Boulder this year and bring it home but the ball didn’t bounce our way. “The program is building. We’re going to be a force to be reckoned with years down the road.”

SPORTS ROUNDUP Chaparral made an impressive late-season turnaround but the Wolverines season ended March 5 with an 88-85 double overtime loss to Rangeview in a boys Sweet 16 state playoff game. The Wolverines were 3-10 early in the campaign but won 10 of their final 12 games and had a chance to advance to the Great Eight but couldn’t quite outlast Rangeview in the second overtime of a classic confrontation played in the Chaparral gym. Chaparral shot 56 percent for the game to keep pace with Rangeview as junior Chris Moody led the way with 32 points. Moody made 13-of-21 field goal attempts for a 62 percent shooting figure. Junior Jake Holtzmann was 8-of-13 (62 percent) and wound up with 26 points. Hayden Dalton, a 6-7 senior, had 14 points and 28 rebounds. He grabbed six offensive and 22 defensive rebounds.

Falcons fall in Sweet 16

Highlands Ranch’s girls team, the Class 5A state runners-up last year, dropped a 62-52 Sweet 16 game to Lakewood March 4 and concluded the season with a 20-5 record. Junior Logan Opheim hit five 3-pointers and led the Falcons with 15 points. Senior Ciera Morgan ended her high school career with a 13-point effort in the loss.

“The difference the second time was we played a more half-court style of defense, a more contain-style rather than our normal aggressive trapping and leaving the backside exposed. We just kind of contained them a little better.” Valor went into the fourth quarter trailing Sand Creek 45-44, but Caroline Bryan swished a 3-point basket that started a decisive surge that saw the Eagles outscore the Scorpions 23-15 and punch a ticket to Boulder. “It gave us the momentum that we needed,” said Bryan, who led the Eagles with 22 points. “It picked up the pace of the game and gave us the excitement and cockiness that we needed to go out and finish it off.” Valor made 18 free throws in the final 5:06 of the game to seal the victory. The Eagles were 28-of-36 at the charity stripe in the second half and hit 33-of-47 free throws in the game. “Momentum was on our side and we knew if we could just stay aggressive and draw fouls we were going to get them into foul trouble, which we did, and that was

Bruetting named to U.S. team

Simona Bruetting of Highlands Ranch will be one of 40 players to represent the United States in the 34th ITF Seniors World Tennis Championships. The event will be held at different clubs across the Palm Beach Gardens and Baca Raton area in Florida from April 21-26 for team competition and April 27-May 4 for individual matches. Bruetting is the captain of the Suzanne Lenglen Cup Women’s 35 and over team.

Tim Sherry, a sophomore at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, will be competing in the NCAA Rifle Championships March 14-15 at Murray State University. There are 34 schools that sponsor rifle teams and the NCAA holds an all-division championship. Sherry, a graduate of Mountain Vista, is on a partial athletic scholarship at Fairbanks. He is currently ranked sixth in USA shooting in air rifle and eighth in 3 position smallbore.

key. “We talked about staying aggressive and playing our game which is pass and cut, ball movement and not trying to score too early. When we play aggressive, we play better. We’re a pretty decent free throw shooting team.” Bryan, a 5-foot-10 junior on a team with all underclass regulars, was 7-for-10 at the free throw line and was credited with four assists. Kendall Bradbury scored 14 points and pulled down 10 rebounds, while Madison McCoy added 13 points. Valor now faces a tough semifinal assignment against Broomfield, last season’s 4A runner-up, and a program that won five state titles between 2007 and 2011. “I feel we are playing real well,” said Klosterman. “The kids are confident. They are not getting rattled when we get behind, they are playing together and the kids on the bench are mentally into the game and throwing out suggestions. It’s just a really good team atmosphere.” Bryan is eager to confront the challenge of playing Broomfield. “We’re playing awesome and I could not be more proud of my team,” she said. “It feels incredible to be going to Boulder. It is actually a dream. I could not be more excited.”

School lunch gets spicy Chef Doug’s burritos debut at district high schools By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Move over, Qdoba and Chipotle. Another Colorado-born burrito maker is gaining a fast following. Chef Doug’s burritos debuted at ThunderRidge High School in early February. And the spicy lunch option, a product of Douglas County School District’s Nutrition Services, is coming soon to Rock Canyon and Mountain Vista high schools. At some point, it likely will be added to the menu at all nine high schools. “Super delish,” fresh-

man Jenna Isakson said of his pork carnitas burrito. “I would eat them every day but I need all the different items in the food pyramid.” “It’s like having a small Chipotle here,” said senior Mercedes Coon, as she waited in a long line of burrito fans at the ThunderRidge cafeteria. Chef Jason Morse can’t get enough of comparisons like that. “I hear them say all the time, `This is so much better than school lunch,’” he said, smiling. “They don’t associate it with school lunch, but it is. This is all `lower sodium, controlled fat, full of flavor. Whether they know it or not, we’re giving them a healthy, hardy, nutritious lunch. “The difference is they get to create their meal ex-

perience, and that’s the beauty of it.” Students can choose from chicken, pork, turkey or beans, brown rice, green and red chilies, and a variety of vegetables and toppings; beef soon will be added to the meat options. The burritos are $5, or $5.50 with a drink. Students in ThunderRidge’s ProStart cooking program helped Morse research the right price point. Morse was challenged by Nutrition Services director Brent Craig to create a fun, restaurant-quality offering so appealing that it would help to keep more students on campus. Douglas County high schools have an open-campus policy, which allows upperclassmen to leave during the lunch break. Chef Doug’s burritos ap-

pear to have met Craig’s criteria. “We’ve got some (students) that come so often, we just make it for them,” said Linda Tokle, who works in the ThunderRidge cafeteria. “We’re competing with Qdoba. The burritos are nice and big, and they’re cheaper.” Morse points to a cafeteria packed with students and roaring with conversation. “We’re building community,” he said. “I’d rather feed our students here where I know they’re safe, and where I know everything is perfect.” Morse and Craig never are content to tread water. Successful as the burritos may be, they’re not the last food item Morse intends to introduce under the “Chef

us to keep being cool, we need something Smashburger’ish.”
