Students learn about Maasai tribe’s culture Warrior chief describes need for education, equipment By Mike DiFerdinando
mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com Students at Daniel C. Oakes High School were visited by a Maasai warrior chief during a school assembly May 5. Maasai Warrior Chief Joseph Ole Tipanko, his wife Cicilia Seleyian and tribesman John Kilenyi Parsitau spoke to students about the differences between the two groups’ cultures and the needs of the Maasai people. While the chief and Kilenyi Parsitau had been to America before, it was Seleyian’s first trip out of Africa. “It was my first time on a plane,” she said. The Maasai are an indigenous African ethnic group of semi-nomadic people who have a reputation as fierce warriors. The tribe lives in Kenya and Tanzania along the Great Rift Valley on semi-arid and arid lands. They occupy a land area of 160,000 square kilometers and have a population of approximately half a million people. They have largely stayed outside the mainstream Western development in the region. Cattle, goats and sheep are the primary source of income for the Maasai. Livestock are traded for other livestock, cash or livestock products such as milk. The chief explained the need for money for more schools and equipment for educating the children of his community. “The kids, sometimes they share a penPOSTAL ADDRESS

During the presentation, students were rewarded for answering questions with handmade Maasai jewelry. The jewelry, made with colorful glass beads, was also made available for sale following the presentation, with the proceeds
going to help fund needed improvements in the Maasai community. The chief said he has been coming to America for five years and that he is very grateful for the generosity of the people here. “Through the partnerships with many people here (in America) we have been able to build two schools in Africa, and it makes me happy to know that at last I’ve made a difference,” he said. “After some time, when I’m old, I will be able to see that I left a seed that will grow and improve the Maasai (community). We’ve been able to build two schools. Many children are going to these schools and it makes me happy that they have a bright future.”

The Douglas County School District will open its doors to those in the education world curious about its reform efforts during a summer Innovation Summit. The event is planned from June 18-20. Sessions will take place in district schools. “This is not going to be your average experience,” Superintendent Elizabeth Fagen said on a promotional video for the event on DCSD’s website. “This is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to collaborate on the transformation, the reinvention of American education, that we all know is best for our kids.” The Innovation Summit is described as a way for attendees to “Get everything you need to spark change within your school district,” according to the website. “We will share best practices from actual implementation by teachers and leaders for kids. You’ll collaborate with teachers who have reinvented their classrooms and teaching for the 21st century, uncover changes that have put millions of dollars into the classroom, work alongside staff who have reinvented professional pay in education, and receive authentic feedback on your ideas and your work.” Sessions will cover professional development, market-based pay, pay-for-performance, teacher evaluations, the legally challenged choice scholarship voucher program, school security and more. During the May 6 board meeting, one parent asked school leaders about the cost of the event. She did not receive an immediate response, though board president Kevin Larsen said they would look into it. “I don’t appreciate my taxpayer dollars being spent on this Innovation Summit,” said Anne-Marie Lemieux. “There is no data to prove these innovations are working. If anything we have data to show they’re not working and are diverting funding away from authentic education resources.” DCSD spokeswoman Paula Hans said the cost to the district will be minimal, with registration and sponsorships covering the majority of the expenses. Cost to attend the event is $200 per person, or $400 for teams of two or more. Three employees of North Carolina’s General Assembly visited DCSD last June. Based on that visit, a North Carolina subcommittee recently introduced draft open-enrollment legislation to allow students to attend any public school in the state.

Lawmakers working together? Let’s see if it lasts If last year’s legislative session was an exercise in surrealism, than this year’s version was like a Bob Ross painting. Sure, there were moments of contention this year. But, for the most part, the olive branches that lawmakers extended to one another all turned into “happy little trees,” as the late Ross would say. This year’s session didn’t have the same venomous bite to it as last year’s. And, for the most part, everyone was on his or her best behavior and legislators actually... umm... worked together on a lot of things? To the rolled eyes and groans among the jaded members of the press, lawmakers have been touting this session as one where about 96 percent of the bills that passed came with bipartisan support. House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, DDenver, points out that the 2013 session was pretty bipartisan as well, but that the “noise” that came about from a handful of bills — such as one that created civil unions and others that tightened gun laws — made it difficult for others to notice that lawmakers often were working together. “There was a lot more heat in the building last year,” Ferrandino said. “One of the differences is we had a biblical flood in our state between the two sessions and I think a lot of people said, `Let’s (set aside) the gamesmanship, the feigned indignation and fighting that we do for theater sometimes and actually just get the work done.’” Even claims that the session was a bipartisan success came with bipartisan support.
“Overall it was not quite as contentious this year as it was last year,” said House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland. DelGrosso acknowledged that there were fights on some issues, but not many. “I think that was kind of good for everybody... to have a little more civility,” he said. Some of the key pieces of legislation that passed the Legislature this year came with overwhelming bipartisan support. They included the Student Success Act, a major K-12 school-funding bill, and an effort to fund a state-operated aerial firefighting fleet. And some of the high-profile bills that died were bipartisan efforts, such as a bill that would have banned photo radar technology like red light cameras and another bill that would have prohibited the sale of cigarettes to persons under 21. There was a sharp difference in tone at the Capitol this year and there wasn’t nearly the kind of tension that resulted in marathon debates on issues like gun control, like we saw last year.
Now, this year started out looking like it was going to be an extension of 2013, when Senate Republicans — just days into the session — blasted Democrats by accusing them of bending the rules to prevent repeal efforts on gun bills from being heard. Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman, R-Colorado Springs, even suggested that Senate President Morgan Carroll, D-Aurora, be recalled over the whole thing — which, by the way, turned out to be a non-story because the controversy was born out of a misunderstanding. Still, when Cadman threw down, I was like, “Oh, snap. Here we go. Where’s the popcorn?” Seriously, I settled in for what I expected to be 2013 redux. Instead, nothing. This year’s session was hardly a heavyweight fight. At best, it was like watching a 12-round fight between a couple of aging boxers who can’t lift their arms to throw punches any more. But, don’t kid yourselves. These guys are politicians and they know when it’s appropriate to sit around the campfire and sing songs together and when it’s time to throw down. For example, House Majority Leader Dickey Lee Hullinghorst, D-Gunbarrel, recently took issue when a reporter asked her if the quiet session was a result of Democrats getting the message that they may have overreached on some issues last year. “I think one reason why this one was less contentious was that (Republicans) got the
message,” she said. “We’re here to do the work of the people and that’s how we do it. We do the work that we think is of core importance to the people of Colorado and a lot of that was bipartisan. “We don’t pick fights to pick fights and maybe they’ve begun to understand that.” But Republicans believe that voters will have long memories when they go to the polls in November. And Cadman will be eligible to become Senate President if just one seat flips in that chamber. “I think what we offer is opportunity and what these guys offer is oppression,” said Cadman. “I mean, these guys virtually want to control everything...” So, in spite of all the feel-good bills that came out of the Capitol this year, there is going to be a real messaging battle that’s going to be played out on television and through yard signs and bumper stickers this fall. And who knows what that’s going to mean for next year’s Legislature, which could end up looking a whole lot different than this year’s. So, I wouldn’t get too accustomed to all this do-goody bipartisanship just yet. Because all it takes is one scorching issue to burn all those happy little trees to the ground.

SHERIFF PREFERS BRICK AND MORTAR OVER OUR CHILDREN’S SAFETY AND YOURS

PAID FOR BY COMMITTEE TO ELECT JOHN ANDERSON
Spring Electronics Recycling Event Sa
I begin by thanking you, Douglas County, for taking the time and an interest in the importance of understanding necessary information in selecting your next Sheriff. Over the next several weeks, I will provide an explanation of why I am giving you a choice in the upcoming Sheriff’s election and to understand and see firsthand the reasons why I and many others truly believe we must make changes to create a safer Douglas County. My desire is to provide new energy, and a new vision to protect Douglas County. The current 33 year regime had the opportunity five years ago to direct stronger presence, programs and so many other enhancements providing more protection for our communities, but elected to create multi-million dollar buildings instead. To highlight this reality I am including unsolicited input I received from a confidential source, “I have seen first-hand how the inadequate number of deputies has impacted our personal safety and the safety of the public especially in the south end of the county. We have been lucky that extended response times have not caused someone’s demise but it’s only a matter of time. Money saved by not replacing personnel but still showing the positions has become the norm and that money is shifted around like a game. The employee shortages are widespread throughout the office except for middle and upper command, there’s no shortage there. Building legacies has become more important than building staff and compensation levels which in turn will better serve the public. Instead the priorities are things like the jail expansion for an area that has never been close to capacity, special vehicles, helicopters, expensive radio projects and other high end items all funded by taxpayers that don’t know how that money is being spent until it’s too late. The 90% approval rating that is boasted about daily on the campaign trails is directly because of the commissioned and civilian employees that actually serve the public every day; people not legacies earned that approval.” Colorado State law mandates that the County Sheriff is responsible and accountable to maintain the jail. Back in the 1990’s, an inmate sued Douglas County for certain services that were not being offer by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department. Courts ruled in favor of the inmate and so began the 1995 Justice Sales Tax. The sales tax was strictly flagged to update the jail primarily with food service and an “Infirmary”. This sales tax was scheduled to sunset in 2010, and the forecast was that all of the mandated updates would be accomplished. As the closure of the 2010 Justice Center Sales Tax was coming near, the Sheriff’s Administration came up the idea that they may be able to sell the idea of extending the sales tax until 2020. Discussions were held with a citizen’s volunteer group who are very loyal to the Sheriff’s Administration and several ideas were suggested on how to extend the expiring sales tax. One of the ideas was to ask the public to focus the tax on hiring more deputies and the necessary equipment for the already short staffed patrol division. The other idea was to maintain the course and keep it status quo. This meant not even one penny could be used to hire any patrol staff and the funding could only be used for Capital Improvements. In addition, the Sheriff’s Administration believed that a personnel request would not pass and elected to go with extending the tax that generated .43% of every penny. I have asked many Douglas County citizens if they know how much this tax generates on an annual basis and have yet to find one person who knows that it’s $20,000,000.00 (MILLION) dollars a year. The Sheriff’s Office pockets at least $50,000,000.00 million during this 10 year window to do whatever they want with and you, the voter, currently have no say on how that money is spent. The first pet project to be built, which is currently under construction, is a new 35,000 square foot Infirmary that took up nearly half the parking lot. A new parking lot had to be addressed and so they built the 4.5 million dollar, multi-level parking lot that has 317 spaces at a cost of $14,277 per parking space. Your tax dollars spent for this new “wish list” building came to $22,500,000.00 and with other fee’s, this project totaled nearly $28,000.000.00. I mentioned that we already have a very nice infirmary in place and this new one is unneeded. The existing infirmary meets all the courts mandates and was designed to do so for many - many more years to come. The Sheriff’s Administration has spent nearly a million dollars on becoming “Triple Crown” Nationally Accredited in 2011. One of these 3 crowns is attributed to the jail and the original infirmary. Meaning that with the existing infirmary everything was in order and in place within the guidelines of the law and procedures. The Sheriff’s Administration will defend all of this by saying that it was built now for the future and to better monitor mental and drug patients. This is not mandated by law. The current infirmary was set up to do exactly this. This is a pet project and the tax payers were not given an option to approve this new building or parking lot. The Sheriff’s Administration master minded it, presented it to the Commissioners and convinced them that it was needed. Now they Please take a moment and visit my website, refuse to accept responsibility by blaming the commissioners. www.Andersonforsheriff.org

55-and-older housing coming to Castle Rock Developer launches first project in south metro area By Mike DiFerdinando
mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com A new housing community catering to buyers 55 and older is coming to Castle Rock. The builder, Louisville-based Boulder Creek Neighborhoods, is entering the Castle Rock market for the first time with a new community called Outlook at Plum Creek. The Outlook community will be made up of 58 stand-alone homes, utilizing Boulder Creek’s “easyHouse” series of designs. The homes will be near the Plum Creek Golf Course. While Boulder Creek Neighborhoods does not own nor are they affiliated with the Plum Creek golf course, 20 of the 58 home sites back to the golf course fairways and greens. Depending on location, other sites may or may not have a direct view of the course. Boulder Creek said they don’t ex-
pect the financial status of the golf course to impact the build-out or success of Outlook at Plum Creek. New streets will be built as part of the development but the community can be found near the intersection of Emerald and Foursome Drive. The site can be accessed from the Plum Creek Parkway exit on I-25. The easyHouse homes are designed to be easy to enter and navigate. They have no steps at the front door and outdoor living spaces. The living area will feature simple and open designs. All “everyday” living spaces are located on main floor. All main-floor bedrooms include ensuite baths. Features like 4-footwide hallways, 3-foot-wide doors and raised electrical plug heights contribute to the ease of use of the homes. “There’s a pretty dramatic lack of housing for the boomer generation that’s moving into that downsizing phase,” Boulder Creek Neighborhoods president David Sinkey said. Outlook at Plum Creek will be the developer’s first community south of Denver. “We looked for a long time to find
the right place to bring this community and (Castle Rock) was a perfect fit,” Sinkey said. Two model homes are currently under construction. Boulder Creek hopes to hold an informational meeting for perspective residents in August, at which time prices will be available and a handful of spec homes will be ready for purchase. Sinkey said he expects the homes to cost in the mid- to high $400,000 range. The homes will be between 40 and 50 feet wide and have space for a three-car garage. Sinkey says the appeal of the new development will be the style of living and lack of maintenance. A homeowners’ association will take care of landscaping and maintenance. “It’s not about the house, it’s the lifestyle that people are trying to enable by having a low-maintenance home,” Sinkey said. For those who purchase in the community, Sinkey said the initial selection process should take about 45 days, followed by five to seven months for construction.

Early in the morning May 11, Castle Rock patrol officers were checking the area around Park Street and located two individuals matching suspect descriptions from a May 8 burglary at DCF Guns. DCF Guns, located at 1155 Park St., was again burglarized in the early-morning hours of May 11. CRPD received an alarm call at 5:17 a.m. and it appears that the suspects entered through the same window that was used during the first break-in. Because the two males matched the description of the suspects from the first breakin and were walking in the area close to DCF
Guns, police began questioning them. Police found property on the suspects taken from the burglary and arrested both of them. The two individuals in question are male juveniles and are from out of state. They remained in custody as of May 12. The suspects were living in what appeared to be a stolen car, according to police. CRPD has located some of the stolen firearms and are working on recovering the remaining items. The store’s security system alerted police to the first break-in around 12 p.m. May 8. When police arrived at the store, they found a window had been pried open and several rifles were missing. Security cameras identified two suspects in the case. Both were white males and were last seen driving a dark-colored sedan. Police are working with agents from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on the investigation.

Governor says fracking special session ‘50-50’ Lawmakers may work overtime to prevent issue from going to ballot By Vic Vela
email@example.com Gov. John Hickenlooper said last week that the odds are “50-50” that he could call lawmakers back to the Capitol over the summer for a special legislative session on fracking. The purpose of the session would be for the Legislature to reach a compromise in terms of the amount of control that local communities have when it comes to regulating oil and gas operations, especially the polarizing business of fracking. The governor said he is hopeful that the oil and gas industry, environmental groups and other interested parties can come to a compromise on this heavily important issue — one that’s gained steam over the last couple of years as drilling has moved closer to Front Range communities. He also said that
he is not holding his breath on an agreement, just yet. “We’re not close enough yet,” Hickenlooper told reporters on May 8, the day after the legislative session ended. “We’ve made tremendous progress, enough progress that it’s worth continuing to talk and try to work through that split.” He then added that “there’s no point in calling a special session unless you get to that point (of agreement).” The debate over fracking — the mixing of water, sand and chemicals that are blasted into the surface to free up blocked oil and gas — is expected to reach a higher and more expensive level if the Legislature does not take action this summer. One or more initiatives to give local communities more power in determining how oil and gas companies operate could end up on the November ballot, which would result in a pricey advertising campaign that is expected to garner national attention. The governor acknowledged that there is a sense of urgency to find a compromise on these issues and that it would behoove all sides to come together, rather than face “draconian” ballot questions, where all bets are off. “Ballot initiatives are thumbs up or thumbs down...,” Hickenlooper said. “They’re often pretty crude ways to deal with complex issues.” Legislative leaders had hoped to bring a local control bill this year and they held out hope as late as the last few weeks of the session that a consensus could be reached. However, it never materialized. “Anytime you have an issue that is as polarized as this issue has been in Colorado, you’re going to have a lot of interest on both ends of the spectrum — and a fairly large interest in the middle of that — and the goal is to bring all those people together,” said House Majority Leader Dickey Lee Hullinghorst, D-Gunbarrel. “Sometimes it takes some time to get there and I know there is some frustration.” The issue is a complex one for lawmakers to deal with. On

The Democratic governor discussed a number of issues, including the possibility of a special session. Photo by Vic Vela the one hand, there are the undeniable economic benefits that fracking provides, including high-paying job creation. Yet at the same time, more and more communities are expressing concern over possible health impacts that come with fracking. So far, five Colorado cities have put in place fracking bans or moratoriums. The special session, if it materializes, would create for some interesting debate among lawmakers who have very different opinions on the issue. “I think the bottom line is, if there is a way that we can protect an industry that is feeding our families and providing our tax base and providing energy security — not only for the state but for the rest of the country — then we ought to be looking at what it’s going to take to protect that,” said Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman, R-Colorado Springs.

Marijuana banking bill highlights flurry of pot activity Regulation of edibles to include proper markings to keep out of hands of children By Vic Vela
firstname.lastname@example.org The House last week passed an 11th hour marijuana banking bill, capping an eventful chain of events on that and other pot-related legislation during the final days of the session. With the May 7 passage of House Bill 1398, Colorado is on its way to becoming the first state in the country to devise a financial system for marijuana businesses. The bill creates a banking co-op system for pot shop owners, which would operate similarly to credit unions. Supporters of the bill say the legislation is needed because currently marijuana is a cash-only business that can open itself up to crime. “Marijuana entrepreneurs have been taking risks all over Colorado in building one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the state,” said Sen. David Balmer, R-Centennial, a bill sponsor. Yet the success of the co-ops will depend on whether the Federal Reserve approves the plan. If it does not, the businesses will not be able to set up checking or credit card services. That’s because marijuana is illegal under federal law and banks tend to shy away from businesses that deal with pot sales because of it. Earlier this year, the U.S. Treasury Department gave banks the go-ahead to offer their services to pot business, with certain limitations. However, that move hasn’t been enough to persuade leery financial institutions from taking on businesses that deal with a federally-outlawed drug.
The bill is a reaction to non-reaction on the part of Congress to deal with the issue of marijuana banking. Congressman Ed Perlmutter, a Democrat who represents Colorado’s 7th congressional district, is co-sponsoring a bill in the U.S. House that would allow banks to provide services to businesses that deal with pot in states where marijuana sales are legal. However, that bill isn’t getting much traction in Congress. “If the federal government was serious about tackling this problem, this bill would not be before you,” Balmer said. The bill was nearly derailed on the last day of the session after the Senate tacked on a key amendment to the legislation the day before. The amendment allows hemp farmers to be included in the co-op. Those who grow hemp — a type of Cannabis plant that is not used for drug consumption, but rather is refined to make products like clothing — told a Senate committee that they were also being turned away by banks. “As far as the federal government is concerned, industrial hemp is also marijuana,” said Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, who sponsored the amendment. “If we don’t add this amendment, they will be the only business in Colorado that is effectively un-banked.” The amendment caused the bill to receive opposition from the banking lobby, which did not want to include hemp growers as part of the mix. After much wrangling during a special conference committee, the House re-passed the Senate’s version of the bill, which included the hemp amendment. Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper voiced his support of the bill to reporters the day after its passage. “We’re not sure it’s going to work, but we know that doing nothing is not going to work,” the governor said. “If you really want to design a system and really want to do as much as you could to get organized crime and gangsters involved, you require
Felony DUI bill dies again Bill would have created stiffer drunken-driving penalties By Vic Vela
email@example.com An effort that dies every year suffered another death this Legislative session as a Senate committee on May 6 killed a bill that sought to create a felony drunkendriving penalty in Colorado. The bill would have made a person’s third DUI in seven years or fourth in a lifetime a felony punishable with possible prison time. But the Senate Appropriations Committee on May 6 put an end to the bill, which would have resulted in millions of dollars in costs for having to incarcerate more offenders. But that’s a cost worth paying for a safer society, said Republican bill sponsors who blasted Senate Democrats who killed the legislation. “The health and traveling safety is at risk from people who consistently drive under the influence of alcohol,” said Sen. Steve King, R-Grand Junction. “They do have a problem and they’ve gone through treatment and they continue to drive because it’s easy for them. “At what point does justice outweigh treatment?” The bill had previously passed the House with overwhelming bipartisan support. But Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Pat Steadman, D-Denver, said the bill would have resulted in an enormous cost to the state. The bill wouldn’t have cost anything for the 2014-2015 fiscal year, but state expenditures over the next three years would have combined for about $20.7 million,
according to an updated Legislative Council fiscal analysis. But Rep. Mark Waller, R-Colorado Springs, the bill’s House sponsor, said the state is in much better economic shape than it has been in recent years. That led him to wonder, “If we’re not going to prioritize it this year, with this budget, when are we going to prioritize it? “There is money in the budget to make this happen and we’re never going to have a better circumstance than what we have today to make this happen,” Waller said. Both Waller and King have tried for several years to make a felony DUI law a reality in Colorado. The bill has failed each time. Colorado is one of only a handful of states that does not have a felony DUI law. Senate President Morgan Carroll, DAurora, said she wasn’t opposed to the bill, but understood why it failed. For one thing, Carroll said the bill would have resulted in $15 million in state costs for prison beds alone. “It might make us feel better, but if you have $15 million to either put in treatment for alcohol abuse or $15 million in prison beds, where are we better off?” Carroll said. “It’s a really good question.” Steadman said that repeat DUI offenders have addictions and that prisons aren’t the ideal place to treat their problems. Steadman also said that being an addict means you are less inclined to be deterred by the prospect of prison time, to begin with. “You can get into a big debate about the deterrent effect of criminal law,” Steadman said. “And when you’re dealing with a behavior that is driven by addiction, those deterrent effects and rational decisionmaking you kind of have to step back and question.”

all cash. That’s a breeding ground for corruption.” The banking bill wasn’t the only piece of marijuana legislation that lawmakers took up during the last days of the session. One of those was a bill that requires pot-infused edibles — such as brownies or candies — to be specially marked so that it is clear that the food contains marijuana. The motivation behind House Bill 1366 was to prevent the accidental consumption of marijuana on the part of children, who think that the food is simply a cookie
or a piece of candy. “There needs to be a way to distinguish Swedish Fish that have marijuana infused with THC and Swedish Fish that doesn’t,” said Sen. Owen Hill, R-Colorado Springs. The bill sets up a task force that will examine options as to what the edible markings will look like, before the Department of Revenue enforces the law. The Senate passed the bill, as well as a separate piece of legislation that limits concentrate amounts in marijuana products.

opinions / yours and ours
Economy improves, but investors worry Investors always seem to have something to worry about. They worry when the market is down and unemployment is high, and now they are worried the market is high and unemployment is down. Welcome to my world. No matter how many times we hear that no one can time or predict the market, the average street investor still tries to do just that. While it is always unsettling to lose money in an investment, most people do not realize that the silent thieves of inflation, spending and poor planning are much more harmful to your net worth than staying with a solid investment plan in good and bad times. Equity investors have enjoyed a nice bull market since the last significant sell-off in March 2009. We have had 13 pullbacks since then of 5 percent or more. During the last five years we have had two instances of a correction, which is defined as a 10 percent or more decline. In 2010 we had a 16 percent decline and in 2011 an 18 percent
decline. Hopefully you did not exit your investment strategy during those times or you would have missed out on one of the most significant bull markets in history. Looking back on your investment performance in the last five years, you can see that you actually benefited from market volatility over that time period. The market re-prices itself when necessary to keep from having artificially high prices that are not sustainable. Therefore, these are good opportunities for people consistently adding to their investments, such as through
letter to the editor Plenty of spending, but not on students My daughter’s neighborhood school sent a letter to accompany students as they asked for donations for their annual fundraiser. The letter states this: “Our district continues to climb out of a valley from previous years’ economic challenges and budget cuts, however, our goal is to keep a focus on strong academics for each student in our school. My parents, teachers and staff are dedicated to helping relieve the impact of these cuts.” The Douglas County School District Administration and Board of Education directors have spent over 5 million dollars on these projects alone: • District website • New payroll and Human Resource software.
• Increase in the communication department. • Legal fees since 2009. • Superintendent Liz Fagen’s annual salary plus benefits. • District developed assessments. • New parent liaison salary. Like many parents and community supporters, I made a donation to support the $46,000 my daughter’s school is asking for so her school can buy math materials and a science lab. I am not happy with this “supposedly” fiscally conservative board spending so much money on bureaucracy and not on our children. Stefanie Fuhr Highlands Ranch
Listen, keep listening, and listen some more Have you ever had a conversation with someone who continually tries to compete on everything from vacations to headaches and from sports to life experiences? You know what I mean, right? If there is a chance to talk about themselves, they will. But let me ask you this … how often have we been guilty of that ourselves? When someone tells us about their children, do we immediately chime in with a similar story about our own children? Maybe even a competing tale that tops what they were trying to tell us. It’s all too common isn’t it? We have become such an “I” focused world we have almost completely forgotten how to have a genuine conversation with others. We have an “I”Pod, “I”Pad, “I”Touch, or “I” anything and everything designed to please ourselves. Now, I am generalizing, of course, because I do know some people who are extremely attentive listeners and keep discussions going based on good, quality questions that they ask, going deeper into what is happening in the exchange instead of trying to outdo or one-up the other person. There is a story that Dr. Denis Waitley shares in his program “The Psychology of Winning” where he talks about a party that he and his wife had hosted. He is one of those extremely attentive listeners and great conversationalists. In his story, he lamented that after the party he felt as if he didn’t do enough talking, he did too much listening and asking questions. But as he took out the trash he overheard his neighbors talking about the party, and they actually commented on how smart and interesting of a guy that Denis was. Think about that for just a moment. Denis didn’t talk about himself, he never mentioned the word “I” or tried to compete in a conversation. All he did was listen and ask terrific questions and they thought he was smart and interesting. What was it that
made them feel that way? Well, he made the conversations about other people, he kept his ears open and his focus on the topic of discussion and not himself. You know the old saying, “God gave us two ears and one mouth and we should use them in that proportion.” Meaning we should listen twice as much as we speak. This holds true in any profession and in any of our personal relationships. Doctors listen much more than they talk, how else can they identify health issues and diagnose the problem? Great sales people know that it is really all about qualifying their customers and prospects through questioning and listening before offering a solution. Spouses, parents, friends, and co-workers can all seem smarter and make conversations more interesting and thoughtful by simply practicing the art of listening, asking more “you” centered questions, and avoiding all “I” focused statements. How about you, do you focus on the other person or do you engage in a battle of verbal ping-pong to make yourself the center of attention? Either way and always I would love to hear all about it at firstname.lastname@example.org. And when we trade an ear for an eye, it will be a better than good week.

a 401(k) plan. Here you can buy during all different market cycles and accumulate more shares on the down days, which help to compound your overall return. Typically when economic news starts to improve, investors get nervous. This may be the situation we are in currently, where we have not had a correction since September 2011. However, it is counterintuitive to worry about devaluing stocks when the economy is getting stronger. This theory further confirms that investor behavior can be a more significant driver in market sell-offs than true fundamentals. Therefore these declines typically don’t last very long — an average of 23 days — after which the stock market begins to recover again. Capital Research and Management Co. states there are three things for investors to remember: 1. No one can consistently predict when market declines will happen 2. No one can consistently predict how
long a decline will last 3. No one can consistently predict the right time to get in or out of the market Based on this good advice, we recommend investors make decisions based on their goals, time frame and risk tolerance rather than guessing the right timing. There is never a perfect time to invest, but it is proven that you will be better off financially if you do put and keep your money working for you.

The dogged pursuit of peace and quiet You can have a direct impact on your neighbors’ quality of life. Since I began writing this column over two years ago, I have received hundreds of emails. Some columns have fathered a few, some more than a few and one generated a lot of emails. It was the column last month about my neighbor’s dog, who can bark for hours. I am not the only one with a problem. I heard from readers who are miserable, who have filed complaints and who have acrimonious relationships because they filed complaints. I received a number of suggestions. One reader recommended a Sunbeam Ultrasonic Egg Dog Bark Control Device, which she placed on her fence. It solved the problem. Her neighbors don’t know why Bingo no longer barks. There’s no paperwork with Douglas County, corroboration with another neighbor as required, no resentment, no retaliation. My art studio extends into the back yard, and there is nothing between it and my neighbor’s dog except a 20-year-old fence. The barking ruins my studio time. Even if I turn up the music. We all love our dogs. That might be a slight exaggeration, because some dogs and other pets are neglected, just as some children are. Between the two there is almost nothing that is worse. Neglected children socialize poorly
and may become bullies at school, or the targets of bullies. Neglected dogs, ones without supervision and discipline, can easily disrupt a neighborhood. There are three little dogs across the street who are right on the greenbelt sidewalk, and blast off every time someone walks by, with or without a dog. They get out and run around the neighborhood. Smitty and I have been “engaged” 15 times by dogs on the loose. I take a sawed-off broomstick when we go for walks. “Oh, it’s OK,” one woman said. “He’s wearing an electronic collar.” Memo: Douglas Country does not approve of an electronic dog collar as an alternative to a leash. Unleashed dogs are all over. I wrote about one that charged at us. The owner acted like his dog was exempt. And used a profanity in front of his son when I picked up Smitty, and commented about his failure to follow county rules and laws. Of course there is poop everywhere. Can’t be bothered? Why do you own a dog? Smith continues on Page 9

Nation in need of immigration reform America is a nation built of immigrants and governed by the rule of law. But currently, our broken immigration system is completely failing at enforcing our existing laws, at securing our nation’s borders, and at providing a usable guest worker program that meets the needs of American businesses. Reform is long overdue. We need to enact an immigration solution that will strengthen our borders and national security, while getting the skilled and necessary workforce to the very companies that want to grow their businesses and stay competitive in a growing global economy. I have studied immigration reform from a variety of facets. Recently I flew to Washington, D.C., to attend the Business, Bibles and Badges Immigration Fly-In. I have also been a part of several roundtable discussions, have taken part in multiple discussions with our own congressional delegation, as well as conversations with congressional delegates from other states. One thing is very clear to me — our current immigration system is in disarray and it is hurting the very businesses that want to invest and grow. The time for a sensible, workable immigration plan for this country is long overdue. While most people agree there is a fiscal impact, taxes paid by immigrants versus the costs born by government and citizens, the effects on the business community have a far deeper ripple effect. I wholeheartedly believe that we need to strengthen our borders, as it is crucial to know who is in our nation and stop the flow of an illegal workforce. The single action of border security cannot be taken in isolation, though. It must be done in conjunction with fixing our guest worker program that is just as broken as our border security. Innovation, creativity, and a highly
trained workforce are the basic tenants for economic development. The H-1B visa caps for 2015 were opened April 1, and within days, the 65,000 and 20,000 caps were filled and businesses that needed the highly skilled, highly trained workforce will be forced to do without. With the recent announcement regarding economic growth (the economy grew at 0.1 percent) this does nothing more than handcuff our business community. This makes little sense. There are fields in high demand (STEM related) whose workforce needs are not being met. We need to give these companies the workers, tools, and a regulatory environment that allows our nation to lead the world in innovation, technology, and research. “There are system-wide deficiencies that are stunting growth, but can be fixed by action in Washington,” said Greg Brown, Chairman and CEO of Motorola Solutions, and the chair of the National Business Roundtable, Select Immigration Committee. The Pew Hispanic Research Center estimates 5 percent of our workforce is not authorized to work legally in this country, and most studies estimate that 11 million people currently reside in this country illegally. Once we have a secure border and a guest worker program that addresses the needs of the business community, we need to protect the job offerings for American citizens who desire employment through an employment

As I said in the previous column, there are many more important issues to occupy our time, but a barking dog can really impact the quality of home life. We do things that we shouldn’t, like texting behind the wheel, running red lights, failing to use turn signals (“Turn signals? What are turn signals?”), speeding, tailgating, and it all seems to be OK. Allowing a dog to bark is a piece of that disregard for others. So far, I have yet to hear from someone who defends barking. Usually I hear from the counterpoints. But how can you defend a nuisance?

the rules of law. We do not need an amnesty program or path to citizenship — we need a path to legalization. These illegal immigrants want to come out of the shadows, they want to pay their fair share so they can support and take care of their families and do so knowing that they can travel back and forth to their country of origin freely without reprisal. I also believe that effective reform needs should include a premium on the use of the English language, to know each and every individual who resides within our country, and they should include a penalty or fine for breaking our nation’s laws. We must also ensure that those who continue to seek asylum illegally do not usurp the rights of individuals who follow the proper channels seeking citizenship, because citizenship is something that we cherish here in the U.S. It should be valued and attained by following the basic premise that we are a nation of laws and only grant this right to those that follow the rules and procedures. The Business Roundtable’s “Taking Action on Immigration, Realistic Solutions for Fixing a Broken System” report succinctly and powerfully sums up our immigration-reform needs. “The time has come for realistic immigration solutions that will both strengthen national security and boost economic growth. America needs an immigration system that places more resources toward enforcement of laws, produces a more dynamic and skilled labor force, and enables U.S. businesses and workers to compete more effectively in the global marketplace. Getting reform right is essential to a healthier economy — accelerating growth, encouraging hiring and creating jobs.”

verification system that is both mandated and properly implemented across our entire country. Once in place, an employment-verification system would not only need to be accurate, it would need to protect the businesses that utilize the system in good faith. Strong penalties would need to be issued for those that skirt or circumvent the process of ensuring a legal, verified, documented workforce. When we have our borders secured, a functioning guest worker program and an employment-verification system in place, we need to enforce our current immigration laws. Enforcement of current laws for one congressman in Florida is centerpiece to any immigration reform. Congressman Ted Yoho of Florida believes that, “Washington has failed to lead on this issue for the past 30 years. It is time we address it. I am more than willing to work on immigration reform as soon as we start enforcing our nation’s laws, and securing our borders to protect our national security.” This particular congressman who is a strong conservative, understands the impasse and yet is willing to address reform, as long as it follows a plan that supports the laws that protect our nation. When I hear that several of our nation’s strong conservative leaders understand our immigration needs and are willing to enact a sensible, pragmatic plan, it gives me hope that a plan can be put in place. Immigration should not be used as a political wedge or a counter measure for other issues. It should be a real topic of political discussion that respects human life, people’s innate desire to be productive and to contribute, and one that ensures our national security interests. Once these tenants of immigration reform are in place, we can then turn to the 11 million people residing in our country illegally and approach the situation within

High school senior earns Boettcher Foundation award Castle View’s Madeline Walden is one of four recognized from county By Jane Reuter
email@example.com Four of the 40 Colorado students chosen for this year’s Boettcher Foundation scholarships are enrolled in the Douglas County School District. The prestigious award, which requires students to attend an in-state college or university, covers virtually all expenses. It extends throughout a student’s college
years, as long as the student maintains a 3.0 or higher grade point average. This year’s DCSD winners include two from Highlands Ranch High School, and one each from ThunderRidge and Castle View high schools. Madeline Walden of Castle View will use her award at Colorado College, where she plans to study chemistry of physics. Walden said she hopes the work she does in the future can change not just her world, but the lives of thousands. The Castle View senior believes science has that power. “I definitely have a desire to have a very broad affect in the world, not to help individuals necessarily but massive groups of people,” she said.

Castle View class achieves across spectrum 2014 seniors double up on last year’s scholarship award amounts at school By Mike DiFerdinando
mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com Castle View principal Jim Calhoun said that his lasting memory of the class of 2014 would be of a group that achieved success in all areas. “They’re a class that has achieved at a high level not only academically, but also athletically and even musically,”
Calhoun said. Calhoun said he was very impressed by a recent band concert, calling “the level of play just inspiring.” Speaking to academic achievement, he said that the class of 2014 more than doubled the amount of scholarship money earned a year ago. This year’s class has been awarded more than $5 million. The Meadows school has a number of students who were individually recognized: Madeline Walden won the prestigious Boettcher award; Douglas Ludwig received an Air Force Academy appointment; Zachary Mattice was awarded a full-ride Air Force

Douglas County seniors overcome tragedy Group overcomes death of two classmates in final year together as Huskies By Mike Diferdinando
mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com The Douglas County High School class of 2014 has been through its share of tragedy. A pair of suicides shocked the school community this year, but Principal Tony Kappas said the tragedies only served to bring this year’s graduating class closer together.
“They really are a special group,” Kappas said. “The togetherness that they’ve shown, even down at the lowest points, they’ve rallied together for the school and the community and each other.” The class includes a National Merit Winner, a student with a perfect ACT score, three students who will attend U.S. service academies, 28 athletic scholarship recipients and a “Top 1,000 Schools in America” ranking by the Washington Post and Newsweek. The class is the first that Kappas has seen through as principal since they were freshmen and one that will always hold a special place in his heart, he said. “It’s one of the most diverse classes

RCHS Class of 2014 raises the bar This year’s seniors excel in academics, community service and compassion By Jane Reuter
jreuter @coloradocommunitymedia.com Each Rock Canyon High School graduating class sets the bar a little higher for the class that follows it. This year is no exception. “It’s definitely the most academic group that’s ever graduated from Rock Canyon,” said Andy Abner, principal of the 11year old Highlands Ranch school that teaches those from Castle Pines and Lone Tree as well. “We have more students above a 4.0 GPA and more stu-
dents graduating with honors than ever before. “They’re also a spirited group, and very competitive students. They have come together and shattered records in athletics, activities and academics. One thing I could say without any hesitation is that they are an incredibly caring group of students. They’re going to go on and do wonderful things.” Abner said the caliber of this year’s top seniors makes it almost impossible to single out individuals. “The top 10 of the class of 2014 — each and every one of them are absolutely impressive, not just from the standpoint of their academic achievements but their service to the community,” he said. “I really don’t know how any of them sleep. They make me look like a turtle.”

That process would prompt still more discussion, Reynolds believed. Additionally, requiring members to state a name instead of voting “aye” or “nay” would more clearly show which candidate board members support, Reynolds said. But most board members voted to leave that provision out of the policy, and include only option A. That requires future boards to vote on nominees with a roll-call vote in order of their nomination, with the seat going to the person who receives a majority of the votes. It’s the same process used to select Robbins, which means the adopted policy adds more discussion initially, but doesn’t change the final voting process. “I’m glad it passed,” Reynolds said. “I do think it will at least provide that framework for boards in the future when they go through this process. “But I wanted (option B) to be included. The whole reason I developed it was to provide some best practices. As part of those best practices, I felt all the options should be included.” Reynolds noted the policy is non-binding, which means future boards could revise it further.

Ballot wording debated on town open-carry issue Special election is slated for Aug. 12 By Mike DiFerdinando
mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com The Castle Rock Town Council took its first run May 6 at crafting the ballot question for the special election regarding the open carry of firearms, currently set for Aug. 12. The first version of the ballot question read: “Shall the open carry of firearms be allowed within municipal building, parks, recreation area, other municipal properties owned by the Town of Castle Rock, except municipal court facilities, and subject to applicable federal law, by approval of Ordinance 2014-03?” “One of the things that you shoot for in a ballot question like this is, first of all, is it understandable to a voter? A voter in the three or five minutes between getting the kids something to eat at the kitchen table and you’ve got your ballot out,” said Castle Rock Town Attorney Bob Slentz. “Is it understandable? To me, that is one of the highest goals when crafting the question. Can the voter get it on one or two reads?” The ordinance currently in force prohibits the open carrying of firearms in town-owned buildings. District 6 Councilmember George Teal proposed that since the question is really a possible repeal of ordinance No. 9.04-165 of the Castle Rock Municipal Code, the ballot question should state that. “That seems to be what the previous council had voted on. It seems to be, and correct me if I’m wrong, what all those petitioners took to the streets to prevent the previous council from doing without more
public input, obviously,” Teal said. “Why don’t we just do it like that? Why don’t we just put this ordinance, exactly as it is, with that preamble, of course, of ‘should the Town of Castle Rock repeal’ in front of the people?” Mayor Paul Donahue suggested that the best possible outcome of the election would be to put an end to the open carry question, either way, once and for all. “Basically all this does is allow the responsibility, the authority, to fall back on the town manager. Our town manager could be here another year. He could be here another 10 years. We don’t know. We’re going to have different councils come up. There’s going to be, I’m certain, other opportunities for this to come up again. I think the majority of the people in the Town of Castle Rock would like to see something that’s done, once and for all, one way or the other,” Donahue said. In order to avoid having to constantly revisit the issue in coming years, he proposed that the council craft an amendment to the town charter. “The only way that we can bring this to a definitive conclusion would be to have an ordinance, in the town charter, voted on by the residents of Castle Rock,” Donahue said. An amendment to the charter would take a vote to overturn in the future, while the ordinance could more easily be retracted or changed down the road. A charter amendment could be voted on in the November election. However, the possibility of pushing the special election back to Aug. 19, and allowing voters to decide then on both the repeal question and the charter-amendment question, was discussed. The council decided that they would revisit the charter amendment idea as well as the alternative readings of the ballot question at the next meeting on May 20.

legislative briefs Flood relief bill gets final OK
The first bill of the legislative session turned out to be the last one passed, as an effort to provide tax relief to flood-impacted homeowners was sent to the governor’s desk on May 7. House Bill 1001 is a property tax forgiveness plan for homeowners whose homes are destroyed by natural disasters. Changes made to the bill in the Senate prior to its final passage led to some latesession drama to save the legislation. The original version of the bill required that the state pay a homeowner’s property taxes for a full year. However, the Senate changed the bill so it would only apply to the period of time that the homes were impacted by the disaster. The House ended up restoring the bill
to much of its original form before it was re-passed. It now heads to the desk of Gov. John Hickenlooper, who is expected to sign the legislation.
in asking a judge to advance the issue to the Legislature, which resulted in the bill and an additional $6.6 million.
North Fork fire claims bill passes
Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 9 signed into law a package of bills that address telecommunications services in rural areas. The bills modernize Colorado’s telecommunication laws and expand broadband Internet service to un-served parts of the state. One of the key components of the package reroutes money from an annual $54 million subsidy from telecom companies to a broadband fund. The subsidy was put in place decades ago, when most homes had telephone land lines.
A bill that will budget $17.6 million in liability claims for those who were impacted by the 2012 Lower North Fork Fire is on its way to the governor’s desk. The fire started as a state-prescribed burn in Jefferson County and culminated in the deaths of three people as well as the destruction of more than 20 homes and the burning of 4,000 acres. The state claims board initially said it was willing to budget $11 million in claims to the victims. However, during a recent court hearing, the victims were successful
Telecom reform signed into law
Wage theft bill moves forward
A bill that provides workers with more resources to fight wage theft claims has cleared the General Assembly. Senate Bill 5 — sponsored by Sen. Jessie Ulibarri, D-Commerce City, and Rep. Jonathan Singer, D-Longmont — would slap businesses with a minimum fine of $50 for every day that an employee is not paid his or her wages. The state could also administer other, larger-sum penalties that would be payable to the employees. The bill passed the House on a 38-27 vote, with Rep. Cheri Gerou, R-Evergreen, being the only Republican to support the effort. The bill now heads to Gov. John Hickenlooper’s desk for his signature.

In 1977, Landess arrived in Denver and anchored along-side Ed Sardella at KUSA for the next 16 years. Landess went on to anchor at WXIA in Atlanta during the Summer Olympics and then to WTTG in Washington, D.C., where he covered the 9/11 attacks. He returned to Denver and 7News in 2002, where he has worked as primary anchor of evening newscasts since. Landess has been honored with more than two dozen Emmy Awards — including five for Best Anchor. He has earned five Edward R. Murrow Awards and contributed to the winning of a Peabody Award in 2013 for wildfire coverage. Landess was inducted into the Heartland Chapter of National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Silver Circle in 2008.

Say it ain’t so, Glo! Veteran radio host extraordinaire Gloria Neal, who’s been splitting her time between the “Gloria Neal Show” on AM 760 radio from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday and her gig on the 6 p.m. news team on CBS4 weekdays, posted on her Facebook page that as of Tuesday, the radio show’s plug has been pulled. Here are some excerpts from her post: “The Gloria Neal on AM 760 is no more. Clear Channel is completely changing the format. The official announcement has not been made as to what the format will be, but none of current hosts will be on the new station. However, you will still be able to find me on CBS4 in the evenings ... “There are no regrets, no hard feelings and no animosity. Every listener has enriched my life — whether you agreed or disagreed with me; whether I introduced you to `Mr. Click’ or gave you your first `Honey Hush’ it was all worth it.” You go, Glo!
TAG Raw Bar moving
Much-lauded chef Troy Guard (TAG, TAG Raw Bar, TAG Burger Bar, Los Chingones, Sugarmill, Guard and Grace) is moving his TAG Raw Bar concept from Larimer Square to Lowry, according to a story in Westword. In its stead, Guard plans to “re-concept” the TAG Raw Bar space on Larimer Square to a less expensive yet-tobe-named restaurant. The old TAG Raw Bar will close on July 1 and reopen as its reinvented self around July 15. Lowry’s TAG Raw Bar is likely to open in September.

SALOME’S STARS FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 12, 2014
ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) This is a good week to look at healing bruised feelings and re-establishing weakened relationships. It’s also a good week to start new projects and make new job-linked contacts. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) Music and art dominate the week, giving the sensual Bovine a lot to appreciate. On the practical side, deal firmly, but fairly, with those who might try to undermine your work efforts. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) Good feelings continue to flow from your recent efforts to reconnect with family and friends. But be ready to defuse a dispute before it can disrupt all that peace and harmony.

GALLERY OF GAMES
CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) TA practical view of a romanticized situation could help to clarify some of its more confusing aspects before you make a decision that could be tough to undo later on. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) Pay more attention to what a recent spate of workplace criticism might say about your performance and not what you think it implies about you personally. Some flexibility might be called for. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) With new information, and new promises of support (not to mention growing self-confidence), this could be a good time to restart a project you couldn’t quite handle before. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Before you decide to close down a problem-loaded project and make a fresh start with someone else, try once more to reach a compromise with your balky partner. He or she might surprise you. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) While you continue earning points for your sharp negotiating skills, be alert for an attempt to undercut your efforts. You’ll need to provide solid facts and figures to stay in the game. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) A minor health problem might cause you to ease up on your usually busy schedule. But you’ll soon be back in the saddle and ready to pick up the reins and charge ahead. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) The adventurous Sea Goat might be eager to take on a new challenge. But before you do, you might want to take some time to check out previously overlooked factors. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) A feeling of being overwhelmed by all that you have to do can be eased by setting priorities. Deal with the most urgent and time-sensitive situations first, and then work down the line. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Creating a calm, peaceful place for yourself in the middle of a roiling emotional whirlpool this week starts when you, and no one else, decide how to make decisions about your life.

El Dia del Nino is treat for kids Vibrant presentations take place in Denver By Sonya Ellingboe
firstname.lastname@example.org Skies were a bit gray on April 27, but colorful festival dancers brought sunshine to the plaza and interior of the Denver Art Museum and nearby locations and attractions. The occasion was the annual El Dia del Nino, a celebration of children and families hosted by the Denver Art Museum each spring — this year including additional collaborators to showcase entertainers and their own exhibits via free admission. Included among the dancers were students from HOPE Online Learning Academy, a public, free, K-12 charter school in the Douglas County School District. For eight months, internationally acclaimed artists have worked with participating HOPE students from HOPE Online Learning Academy Co-Op on an “Art Across Cultures” program, designed to boost students’ connection with their schools and
communities. Students from three of HOPE’s 40-plus learning centers across the metro area — Awaken Academy, I AM Academy and Hillcrest Academy — worked with professional artist mentors to develop the 12-scene storytelling program, “Tree of HOPE,” which they performed at 1 p.m. in the Denver Art Museum’s Ponti Hall. The program contained original songs about the environment, choreographed a traditional Mexican dance sequence and used artwork created from recyclable materials. It follows the school’s intent to integrate the arts into other subject areas — opportunities these students might not have otherwise. These at-risk students have online and individualized learning plans, with daily inperson support from licensed teachers and experienced community mentors. Janelle Ayon was director for “Tree of HOPE,” based on an original story and choreography by Jairo Heli. Kenny Passarelli composed original music and Taketo Kobayeshi added animation. Also contributing: Beatriz Gomez, stage and prop design; Edwin Bandela, special guest; and Moises Olmos and Delmar Productions.

Construction begins on new park’s playground Miller site will offer stair-climbing course By Mike DiFerdinando
mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com A year after it started, construction continues on the new Philip S. Miller Park in Castle Rock, with completion expected in late October or November. Castle Rock Parks and Recreation director Rob Hanna gave a progress update to the town council on May 6. Construction of the field house, pool and locker rooms is continuing. Most of the large structures for the field house are complete. The athletic field and lights are completed, and synthetic turf is scheduled to be laid in the next few weeks. The next phase of construction, which was approved at the meeting, includes the building of the adventure playground. The playground will be integrated into the natural landscape overlooking the park athletic field and situated along the park’s trail system. It will cover approximately three acres of the park and will include unique playground equipment, such as hillside slides, swings, spinning elements, uphill ladder bridges, climbing nets, exploration trails, picnic ta-
bles, concrete paths, grassy picnic areas and trees. The playground is designed to fit seamlessly into the natural landscape of Philip S. Miller Park and incorporate elements of the natural environment, such as opportunities for exploration through Gambel oak, a challenging progression over varied terrain, kinetic features, picnicking spots and connectivity to trails and other park use areas. The new play area will be located within the southern valley of the park, in what is being called the Kinetic Canyon area, and will be positioned on a ridge located adjacent to the main athletic field. Hanna also discussed the creation of a fitness-oriented stair-climbing course that will be featured in the 225-acre park. “Fitness has become a real extreme sport almost in its own and a lot of people like to do these activities outside,” He said. “People use the stairs at Red Rocks for all these fitness training and things like that. “We’re building Castle Rock’s own stairclimb challenge course. Two hundred vertical feet straight up, made with these types of stairs for fitness programs, for people to come out and use.” Mayor Paul Donahue said he was pleased with the progress of the project, which has an estimated price tag of $30 million. “It’s coming along better than expected,” Donahue said. “It’s pretty exciting seeing it begin to take shape.”
Rooftop fireworks show planned for Starlighting Town will try again to have display on July 4 By Mike DiFerdinando
mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com Castle Rock is planning a traditional fireworks show for the Fourth of July, but after two consecutive years of cancellations due to fire danger, the town’s backup plan is to move the show to the opening of the Philip S. Miller park in October or November if necessary. For the past two years, the show was moved to the annual Starlighting Celebration in late November. Now plans are in the works to switch the Starlighting fireworks display to a rooftop show, somewhat smaller than the July Fourth event. The town council has been looking into ways to make both shows possible on the $50,000 budget provided by the Philip S. Miller Trust Fund, which doesn’t utilize any taxpayer money. “(Town staff) were able to attend a festival and events conference down in Pueblo and we saw a rooftop fireworks show right in downtown Pueblo. It was really exciting, had a big impact and there was no cancellations, no fallout zones, no traffic diversions or any-
thing like that,” town business analyst Kristen Trbovich said at the town council meeting May 6. “It was able to happen right downtown, right over our heads. And as we saw that show we thought it would be a perfect fit for our Starlighting event, being that it is centered downtown.” “We went and did a little research about that type of show and we found out that it was very cost-effective and that we could do both our fireworks show for the Fourth of July and for the Starlighting event for the $50,000 that we had budgeted.” A completely different kind of fireworks is used for the rooftop show than is used in a traditional show. The shells are smaller and no fallout zone is needed because they disintegrate in the air. “Even though it’s smaller, you’re right underneath them so there’s still a big impact,” Trbovich said. “It’s a completely different kind of feel.” The rooftop show will last about eight to 10 minutes. “I think the fireworks just make Starlighting. You can go anywhere on the Fourth of July and grab a fireworks show, but I love the fact that we have the fireworks at Starlighting,” Mayor Paul Donahue said. The fireworks will be shot off Town Hall at 100 Wilcox St. or the Castle Rock Fire and Rescue headquarters at 300 Perry St.
Ride to raise money for women in need By Mike DiFerdinando
email@example.com The Young Citizens of Philanthropy will be hosting their Cycle against Violence bicycle ride May 17. The ride will begin at the Douglas County Events Center at 500 Fairgrounds Road in Castle Rock, and it will benefit the Women’s Crisis & Family Outreach Center. Registration can be completed online at cycleagainstviolence.com through May 16. The cost for the event is $40 per rider and includes lunch from Jason’s Deli and a T-shirt. There will be a half-century ride, a 30-mile ride and an eight-mile family ride. “This is a fun ride. This isn’t a competition,” ride director Jason Golden said. “It’s a great event where people can come out and have fun and help a good cause.” The 50-mile ride will take riders south
through the Larkspur and Perry Park communities, and the 30-mile ride takes much of the same route. Heading north out of Perry Park, riders will go to Wolfensberger Road to return to Castle Rock. This portion will require a challenging 5 percent uphill grade, offering a view of Castle Rock’s namesake geological formation before returning to the event center. The eight-mile route will take riders along the East Plum Creek Trail and back to the event center. Last year’s family ride was only four miles long. “One of the main things we heard after last year’s event was that the family course was too short. So it’s twice as long this year,” Golden said. Young Citizens of Philanthropy is a group of young professionals who are dedicated to furthering the work of the Women’s Crisis & Family Outreach Center by educating and creating awareness.

Tri the Rock gives kids chance at triathalon Entry fees help support schools’ physical education By Mike DiFerdinando
mdiferdinando @coloradocommunitymedia.com Kids from around the Front Range will have a chance to compete in the ninth annual Tri the Rock triathlon May 18 in Castle Rock. Tri the Rock is open to children ages 5-14. Competitors will be split up by age groups, with course distances varying based on age and ability. For 5- and 6-year-olds there will be a 25-meter swim (one pool length), a one-kilometer bike ride (one lap around Butterfield Park) and a 500-meter run. For children ages 7 to 10, there will be a 50-meter swim,
a four-kilometer bike ride and a one-kilometer run. For those from 11 to 14 years old, there will be a 100-meter swim, an eight-kilometer bike ride and a two-kilometer run. “This race was designed from the start for kids to try something new. It’s set up for success,” race director Kristen Trbovich said. “There are lots of volunteers. They won’t be shunned or looked down on if they can’t finish the race. “This event is all about getting kids to be excited about being active and healthy.” There is a $40 entry fee for each participant, with $10 of every registration fee going to support health and wellness in the physical education department of the competitor’s school. More than 100 schools were represented in 2013. The race began in 2006 with
225 participants. That number is expected to be more than doubled this year. Competitors must register for the race by May 17. Registration can be completed online at crgov.com/index. aspx?nid=313. Trbovich said that while some competitors practice running the course and train for the event ahead of time, others are beginners and have never even attempted a race of the kind before. “Lots of kids tried it and fell in love with it,” She said. “Some start biking or swimming or running on teams or at school. They bring it to their other sports.” Pre-race check-in begins on May 17 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Castle Rock Recreation Center. The race begins at 8 a.m. May 18. Bike racks open at 6:30 a.m.

Colleen Schwake has been promoted to the post of Director of Business Development and Natalie Harden is now Assistant Director of the South Metro Denver Small Business Development Center (SBDC) as well as continuing as the Center’s International

Huskies in, out of playoffs without taking field Douglas County slotted for postseason, Mullen takes its place By Jim Benton
firstname.lastname@example.org Douglas County was ousted from the Class 5A state baseball playoffs without playing a game. In playoff brackets posted May 7, Douglas County was seeded No. 30 and scheduled to play May 10 against Fairview in the District 7 tournament in Boulder. However at practice May 8, the Huskies were notified that they were out of the playoffs and replaced by Mullen. The confusion was caused by a mistake in compiling wildcard points, which determines the state playoff seeding. An out-of-state team that played Mullen after the May 3 cutoff for determining wildcard points was counted against the Mustangs’ record. But once the game was removed from consideration, Mullen wound up two hundreds of a point ahead of Douglas County and left the Huskies repacking their equipment for the season. “Tuesday (May 6) we were told we were out of the playoffs,” said Douglas County coach Mark Roberts. “Then Wednesday (May 7) we were told we were in the playoffs. I’m old school and I just wanted to see it official in the brackets on the CHSAA website. And there it was, there it appeared and Douglas County was going to Fairview. “I got ahold of our booster club and they made hotel arrangements, I let the kids know and they were jumping up and got pretty excited because they were going to the state tournament. They all rushed to get their practice gear.” However, the players didn’t make it through one practice without being ousted. “On my way to practice I get a call from CHSAA and Bert Borgmann (CHSAA Assistant Commissioner) and he said he wanted to give me a heads up that MaxPreps was reviewing the calculation of the points. I’m like, `what does that mean?’ He said, `It’s not with you guys it has to do with an opponent
After the initial brackets were released the Douglas County baseball team thought it would be playing in this year’s postseason. Due to a reporting error from another school, the Huskies were later bumped from the bracket. File photo of Mullen’s and when they played their game.’ “I go out on the field and the kids are smiling ear to ear. What do you do? Do you practice? I sat them down first and told them what Bert Borgmann said. I said, `let’s go out and practice and if a phone call comes I’ve just got to hope that it is good news.’ About 45 minutes into the practice I got the call and they said unfortunately you guys are out.” And that’s when Roberts’ quandary worsens. “I had to call the kids in,” the veteran coach added. “After the roller coaster of announcing to the school they were in and going home and get all their stuff this was bad any way you look at it. “I felt like an idiot. I wanted to tell CHSAA to come down and tell the 16 kids that are standing on the field that they are not going to the playoffs. I didn’t want to be that guy. I was the guy that told them they were in. Bert apologized over and over again. He felt bad
about it.” Borgmann hinted that one of the problems was the release of the brackets on May 7. “The biggest issue was the bracket was released with DC on it,” said Borgmann. “The issue was flagged Tuesday night and it took us six and a half hours Wednesday to find the mistake. All the while we were being told that it was probably accurate. I had to make the call on publishing and I should not have let the bracket go out. “The biggest issue with wildcard points is that there are so many things that go into them, the MaxPreps guys had to break down the program to find the mistake.” Roberts carefully took a couple swings at the wildcard point system and the seeding for the playoffs. “They (CHSAA) have to get this figured out,” he said. “The whole point system in my opinion is so messed up.” Lewis-Palmer coach Tom McCabe is also
flustered with the system. He figured his team had wrapped up a host spot for the May 10 Class 4A playoffs when he departed on a business trip. LewisPalmer, 16-3 and unbeaten in Colorado, was seeded ninth instead of eighth and the District 2 tournament was held in Evergreen instead of Colorado Springs. McCabe pointed out that Evergreen listed Palm Springs, Calif. with having more wins than it actually had for the wildcard process. He called CHSAA Thursday but was told he had missed the midnight May 7 deadline. Lewis-Palmer still made the playoffs but had to play at Evergreen. Douglas County, however, had to watch the playoffs. “We were on a high,” said Roberts. “We won our last five games, we beat Mountain Vista that was 16-1 at the time and we were starting to click on all cylinders. Talking about the emotions of high school kids, they were thinking, hey we can play with anybody.”
Olympic Gold medalist joins Team Hunsaker Rulon Gardner speaks at May 9 fundraiser that aids Castle View senior By Mike DiFerdinando
mdiferdinando @coloradocomunitymedia.com The Castle Rock community’s commitment to injured Castle View wrestler Joe Hunsaker showed once again with a dinner and silent auction last weekend. Hunsaker suffered a broken neck during a wrestling tournament in February. The wrestling community has continuously supported the high school senior during his rehabilitation and that support grew even stronger when former Olympic Gold Medalist Rulon Gardner came to town to speak at the May 9 event. Gardner was Olympic teammates with Castle View High School wrestling coach Kevin Bracken during the 2000 Sydney Games. Bracken said he was honored to have his friend come speak and that he is the perfect example of someone who succeeded despite being faced with obstacles in life. “I know that Joe is going to take his rehab and work as hard as he can to get to the best point for his success,” Bracken said. “He’s a fighter. Joe’s a winner and he will continue to thrive and grow and get to the place as a person where he needs to be in life and get to a spot where he can be successful.” Gardner spoke about his own challenges growing up and wrestling in Wyo-
A silent auction was held May 9 to help raise money for Castle View wrestler Joe Hunsaker’s recovery. Photo by Mike DiFerdinando ming and then in college at the University of Nebraska. “When I was 8-years old, I had a brother die of Aplastic Anemia. That same year our barn burned to the ground. It was one of the coldest winters ever, 77 below zero an hour south of Jackson Hole. And the community came together,” said Gardner who grew up on a dairy farm as the youngest of nine children. “When my brother was dying in the hospital, they brought us food. They helped change our pipes. My parents
were gone all summer; all of our chores were done. All of our crops were planted. (That’s) because we lived in a town just like Castle Rock, where people support and help and want to see people succeed.” Gardner was relatively unknown coming out of high school and ended up at Ricks College, a junior college in Rexburg, Idaho. “I asked my college coach, ‘why did you recruit me? You watched me lose my only match my senior year,’” Gardner
said. “He said, ‘Rulon, the reason I recruited you was with two seconds left in that match you still thought you could win. That’s why I recruited you. Most wrestlers will quit because they’ll realize that they can’t win. I would rather take a wrestler that has all heart and very little ability and make him a champion than (take) someone who has all talent and no heart. I won’t fail with that person.’” As a sophomore, Gardner won the NJCAA national heavyweight wrestling championship. He then earned a scholarship to attend the University of Nebraska, where he finished fourth in the 275-pound weight class at the 1993 NCAA Championships, earning All-American honors. Wrestling wasn’t the only place where Gardner was challenged. He said that despite having a learning disability, he spent six years at Nebraska earning his degree in physical education. He then went on to compete internationally for the United States, becoming the world and Olympic champion. At the 2000 games, Gardner beat Russian Aleksandr Karelin, who was previously undefeated in 13 years of international competition. “Joe going through what he’s gone through and what he will go through is going to show his character,” Gardner said. “Castle Rock, the people who are here tonight for Joe, to show their support, this means something, because everyone pulled together to help each other. That’s what support is.” In addition to Gardner, the event also featured a fajita dinner and silent auction, with all of the proceeds going to Hunsaker’s recovery and medical expenses.

Jaguars, Golden Eagles advance to quarters Local powers stay on path for championship game rematch By Jim Benton
email@example.com Rock Canyon and Mountain Vista, last season’s Class 5A girls soccer finalists, both took to the field for a second round playoff game May 9 at Shea Stadium. However, the teams didn’t play each other. No. 2 seed Rock Canyon scored twice in the final 13:09 of the game to beat 18th seeded Liberty, 2-1, in a late afternoon contest. Defending state champion and No. 4 seed Mountain Vista followed with a 5-0 triumph over 13th seeded Standley Lake. The only way the Jaguars and Golden Eagles could meet again would be in the May 21 state championship game at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Rock Canyon (16-1-0) was scheduled to face Ralston Valley (14-3-0) in a May 13 quarterfinal game at Shea Stadium while Mountain Vista (14-1-2) was gearing up
to take on Fairview (15-2-0) in a May 13 match at Shea. Semifinal games are scheduled for May 17 at Englewood High School. Rock Canyon gave up an early first half goal and was still down until Alex Vidger scored for the Jaguars in the 67th minute to tie the game. Kaycie Young notched the game-winning goal 3:37 later when she controlled a pass from Rebecca Pousma on the right side, sped around a defender and deposited the ball into the left corner of the goal. “About 18 minutes into the second half I moved our center back (Vidger) to play forward,” explained Rock Canyon coach Mat Henbest. “She is very fast and athletic. Once we got it tied up, we moved everything back. “Kaycie finally broke through. She picked her moment just right and put a nice ball right in. We always had the lead last year until we got into the state championship game. This was good for us. We haven’t been down much this year. The adversity was good for us. We bent but luckily didn’t quite break.” Vidger, a junior, admitted she was a little concerned. “With 13 minutes to go we were freaking out because it was not like we could

Rock Canyon junior Alex Vidger looks to clear a ball out of the Jaguar end during the first half of play against Liberty on May 9. Vidger was one of two Jaguars to score in the second half of the 2-1 victory. Photos by Ryan Boldrey come back out, practice and win the next one,” confessed Vidger. “This could have been our last game. We needed to step up. It was an eye-opener for us.” Young, a senior bound for the University of Portland, was confident despite playing most of the game down by a goal. “I was pretty confident in our team,” she said. “We played hard, we came back and that was good.” In other second round Class 5A play-
off action, No. 6 seed Arapahoe defeated Monarch, 1-0, Ralston Valley edged Cherry Creek, 2-1, and Fairview scored early on a penalty kick to oust ThunderRidge, 1-0. Arapahoe (13-3-1) was scheduled to travel to Colorado Springs May 13 to challenge Pine Creek (14-2-1) in a quarterfinal game. Douglas County fell 6-0 to Standley Lake May 6 in first round action. The Huskies finish the year at 9-6-1.

Regis Jesuit is the favorite to win the Class 5A state golf championship, which will be held May 19-20 at Raccoon Creek Golf Club in Littleton, but there are several teams ready if birdies are hard to come by for the Raiders. Cherry Creek, Arapahoe, Highlands Ranch, Rock Canyon, Legacy and Fossil Ridge are among those that are also considered title contenders. “There’s a lot of parity this year,” said Highlands Ranch coach James Barker. “There are a lot of teams that just have two really good players and two kind of OK players. Regis definitely has the edge because they have three that can line up and shoot 70, but if Regis slips up, there are a bunch of other teams that could win.” Scores from the top three
players on the four-girl teams are figured into the team scoring for each round of the two-day tournament. Cherry Creek’s Calli Ringsby will be back to defend her state title but just like the team chase, there are plenty of competitors that will contend for medalist honors. “It helps that I won state (last year) and I know I can do it again,” said Ringsby who will play golf at Stanford next season. “I want to stay consistent the first day. You can’t win the tournament the first day but you can lose it.” Other golfers who should be on the leaderboard include Arapahoe senior Hannah Wood, who has been third the past two seasons, Sydney Gillespie of Regis, Dakota Ridge’s Sydney Merchant, Michelle Romano of Rock Canyon and Legacy’s Hankins sisters, Jennifer and Sarah.
