Motorists slowly passed the home on Fox Hunt Circle in Highlands Ranch, shaking their heads, or in the case of one passenger, cupping her mouth in apparent disbelief or shock. On the bitterly cold morning of Feb. 1, crime-scene tape and law enforcement vehicles were evidence of the suburb-shaking events of the night before. A teenager had killed his mother, then himself. Tatiana Klamo, 46, died from multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Doug-

las County Coroner’s Office. Her son, Robert Klamo, a 15-year-old Mountain Vista High School student, died from a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound. As investigators removed items from the home the morning after the shooting, a pair of second-floor windows remained open. Those were the routes a woman and a teenaged girl, the shooter’s sisters, used to escape the deadly situation, authorities said. The older sister was seriously injured as she fled. She remained in a local hospital as of Feb. 1, Douglas County Undersheriff Tony Spurlock said.

Athlete gets OK to appear in games Mountain Vista’s Bailey Roby can still play, with certain conditions By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia @coloradocommunitymedia.com After news broke that Mountain Vista basketball player Bailey Roby may have made his last court appearance on Jan. 24, CHSAA said it will let the senior — who wears two prosthetic legs — play with certain conditions. The story, originally published by Colorado Community Media before being picked up by numerous outlets, began making the rounds on social media late on Jan. 29. The hashtag #LetBaileyRobyHoop gained traction on Twitter, garnering hundreds of positive responses. A fellow student also posted a petition called “Put Roby Back In!” on www.thepetitionsite.com, which had gained 2,348 signatures as of Feb. 3. Bailey Roby called the social media campaigns “really, really cool.” “It’s all been really positive,” the 6-foot-4 senior said. Roby, born with just three toes on each foot, had both of his legs amputated as a baby. He was fitted with his first pair of prosthetics at age 3, picked up golf and baseball in elementary school and started playing basketball in the eighth grade. Pat McCabe, Mountain Vista’s athletic director, said he was “pretty damn proud of (the school’s) kids” Roby continues on Page 25

Girl Scouts feed hungry families Eldorado, Trailblazer students donate more than 4,000 items By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia@coloradocommunitymedia.com If you ask the students in Girl Scout Troop 2856, there was more than one Super Bowl last week. As part of a project to earn their bronze medals, the eight girls in the troop pulled together a weeklong food drive and education campaign about hunger at Eldorado and Trailblazer elementary schools in Highlands Ranch. The drive was a part of a national initiative called the Super Bowl of Caring, a Girl Scout event that happens every year around the NFL Super Bowl since 1990. “It’s been so wonderful to see what these girls have done and how much they care,” scout leader Rebecca Collins said. Asha Kukuda, daughter of co-scout leader Kay Kukuda, said her favorite part of the food drive was seeing the nonperishables stacked up high. “Going to the pantry and we saw all that food, I know we are doing the right thing,” the 10-year-old Eldorado student said.

The two schools had a competition to see who could collect the most cans and boxes of food. In total, the girls collected 4,390 food items, all of which are going to the local Fresh Harvest Food Bank, previously the Douglas County Panther Pantry. Eldorado won with 2,329 food items, while Trailblazer brought in 2,061. Eldorado averaged 3.96 food items per student with 588 students, while Trailblazer averaged 4.18 per student at 493 students. Douglas County schools have provided the food bank with more than 15,000 food items over the past six months, which helps serve more than 500 people a month, according to program director Jen Zander. The food bank uses around 5,700 food and toiletry items monthly, Zander said. “Our food bank is a little different than others in that instead of handing a family a box of food, we ask the individual families of their food needs and pack each family accordingly, taking into account dietary restrictions and family size,” Zander said. There has been a demographic shift in the last decade, with more “marginalized students” making their way into Douglas County schools, including minority students and hungry children, Eldorado principal Katy Kollacsh said.

COLORADO HUNGER STATISTICS • More than 25 percent of working families in Colorado do not have enough food to meet their basic needs. • Colorado has one of the fastest growing rates of childhood poverty in the nation.  In just 8 years, (2002-2010, the rate of childhood poverty increased 86 percent in the state.  • Children aged 0-5 are most at risk of living in homes without enough food. • Colorado has low participation in the major nutrition assistance programs, including: Food Assistance (SNAP/Food Stamp Program) - 51 percent, School Breakfast Program 46 percent, Summer Food Service Program - 13.2 percent *Statistics provided by Colorado Children’s Campaign and the US Department of Agriculture

“The image of Highlands Ranch is one of affluence, but that is changing,” Kollacsh said, citing an 8-10 percent slice of Scouts continues on Page 25

February 6, 2014

A girl’s journey of acceptance Someone, perhaps her mother, left her on a bench near a bus stop in Beijing. Because she had no identification records of any kind, doctors estimated she was about 3 years old based on weight and height. A woman found her and took her to a welfare institute — an orphanage — where she lived until an American family adopted her and brought her into their home. She was 4 1/2. Today, Wenxia Sweeney is 16. Straight, glossy hair the color of dark chocolate frames, a face with brown eyes that express emotion with transparent honesty, and a wide, easy smile that conveys contentment. But it hasn’t always been this way. And she knows, without a doubt, there will be times when it won’t always stay that way. Because judgment may leave, but it inevitably returns. For a person defined by two worlds — one clearly visible — it arrives in unexpected moments. “What kind of Asian are you?” The sudden question, blurted recently in a school hallway, came from a girl who didn’t know her. Pause. Shock. “Chinese.” “OK,” the girl said. Wenxia watched her walk away and thought: Ignorance, not meanness. But that’s the predicament. “I’m in some ways homeless,” she says. “On the outside, I’m not accepted here, but I’m accepted on the inside. In China, I’d be accepted on the outside — I’d look like an insider — but as soon as I opened my mouth, you could tell I’m not from there.” As soon as Wenxia begins to talk, you can tell she’s from here, an average American teenager who, as she puts it, goes to school, eats, sleeps and occasionally gets bad grades. At the same time, “everything else in my life is not average,” she says. “I am adopted

— that’s not average. … When I celebrate my birthday — that could be my actual birthday, but I don’t know. When I tell people my name, it’s kind of bittersweet because I don’t know my actual name that I was given at birth.” But she is certain about her family. “There’s not a doubt in my mind — these are my parents,” she says. “They’ve always been Mom and Dad.” Sharon Sweeney remembers the first time she and her husband, Tim, saw Wenxia. They were in the waiting room at the welfare institute, placing fingerprints onto paperwork, when Tim looked up and said, “There she is.” “She was so little — we didn’t expect her to be so little,” Sharon says. “And she was so frightened. It just kind of broke your heart.” She came home to a sister, Tim’s and Sharon’s biological child, who was one year older and fair-haired and fair-skinned like her parents. Children at school soon pointed out that Wenxia wasn’t. “I’ve never known what it’s like to live with a family that looks like me,” she says. But “it’s never really bugged me that I look different than my parents. I wouldn’t be who I am without them.” Throughout elementary and middle school, however, the way she looked generated other gestures and comments: Students who pulled their eyes back. Assumptions she was automatically smarter because she was Asian. Questions about whether she ate rice every day. “I felt bad because it was just my physical appearance,” Wenxia says. “They were judg-

ing me because of something I can’t change before they ever get to know me.” She didn’t understand prejudice. But the transition to high school was the most difficult. The words, uttered by a handful of students, wounded deeply. “Communist.” “Yellow.” “Small-eyed.” “Chink.” “Immigrant,” with the F-word attached. She didn’t say anything at first, she says, because she didn’t recognize it as bullying or racism. “Since I didn’t recognize the situation for what it was, I didn’t know how to protect or defend myself.” But she learned, with the support of her family and longtime counselor. “We’ve always tried to instill confidence in her as a person,” Sharon says. “She’s just great at internalizing the positive things that you say and the positive things you put out there for her.” Through all this and through her history classes, Wenxia has discovered she’s not been alone in her experience. Humanity’s flaw, she says, is we judge as soon as we see. “It’s not just Asian. It’s African-American. It’s Hispanic. It’s all different races. ... It’s always been a problem in this country,” dating back through the ages and various immigrant populations. And even though she’s never been prone to stereotyping or making jokes about a person’s ethnicity, “it makes me really think twice before I speak,” Wenxia says. “I have before thought things that were judgmental … so now I think twice about what I’m saying. I’m also more aware when other people are doing this kind of stuff verbally and I can tell them to knock it off.” Her message is simple: Learn acceptance. Wenxia is in a good place. She is more confident at a different high school this year. She has challenging academic classes. She has goals. She has a good

group of friends on whom she can depend. And as always, she has her family. “I know who I am and if someone wants to judge me for that … it’s not right, but it’s not on me.” She is learning Chinese. She wants to travel everywhere. But one day, she’d like to return to China, to discover the piece of her left behind, and possibly search for her parents, find the answer to why they gave her up. She wants to change the world, help people see their worth. Somehow. Her voice trembles just a bit. “Even if that means one person, even if I just change one person, that would mean the world to me.” Sharon often thinks about Wenxia’s mother in China. “I don’t know why her mom had to lose her in order for us to get her.” Emotion clouds her voice. “What a brave woman she was to let that child go. Taking your 3-yearold by the hand and leading her someplace and knowing you’ll probably never see her again. … That shows how much she loved her.” The details of that day are fuzzy in Wenxia’s mind. She remembers only she was never alone at the bus stop and someone’s hand held hers the entire time. That day, the day she was found, became her birthday. Wenxia’s right. That’s not your average birthday. It’s a particularly special day, a day worthy of great celebration for a little girl who would get that chance to change the world by standing up to intolerance and teaching us what she had learned.

Eagle Academy graduates soar past challenges 27 students earn high school degrees at alternative school By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunityumedia.com Becca Morales was failing classes at her Cherry Creek high school and fighting depression before enrolling at Eagle Academy. Once a devoted soccer player, the 17-yearold had been diagnosed with second-impact syndrome, a sometimes fatal condition caused by multiple concussions. Not only could she no longer play the game she loved, Morales faced new mental and physical challenges. “I have symptoms that are going to last forever,” she said. “I have awful eye-hand coordination. And it really affected how I learned. I was a lot slower.” Teachers at the high school she previously attended misinterpreted Morales’ hesitancy. “I wouldn’t realize for a couple of seconds what they were saying because I was still processing,” she said. “I would get in trouble. They thought I was giving sass. When I came to Eagle Academy, they understood I was just processing things.” Morales is among 27 students who graduated Jan. 30 from Eagle Academy, which holds its commencement ceremonies twice annually. An alternative to Douglas County School District’s traditional high schools, Eagle offers classes from 3 to 9 p.m. in a wing of Highlands Ranch High School.

Becca Morales was among three speakers who represented the class of January 2014 during Eagle Academy’s Jan. 30 graduation. Photo by Jane Reuter Because enrollment is capped at 120 students, Eagle Academy offers them a sense of intimacy they may not find in other DCSD high schools — many with about 2,000 students. For people like Morales, that smaller student body is key. In my Cherry Creek school, “I wasn’t getting a lot of one-on-one attention, and I was failing more than half my classes,” she said. “Now, I’m ending (at Eagle) with all A’s and B’s. “I think it has a lot to do with feeling com-

fortable in my learning environment. The teachers were really accommodating. I didn’t have to worry about people judging me. I could focus less on what others were thinking of me and more on school.” Graduating Eagle Academy senior Steven Ebright doesn’t believe he’d have graduated from high school without the night option. He struggled academically as a freshman at ThunderRidge High School, then tried the online eDCSD before coming to Eagle. “I wasn’t happy there at the beginning,”

Ebright said. “I didn’t want to be there. I wanted to go to ThunderRidge. But then I started to fit in. There weren’t really cliques. Everyone was one big family. “At the end of my junior year, I had passed every single one of my classes with flying colors.” When Ebright’s mom moved to Denver, he stayed at Eagle. That meant taking two buses and the light rail to get to school in Douglas County and his job at the Lone Tree McDonald’s — a 20-minute trip by car that took Ebright about two hours on mass transit. He worked overnight shifts at McDonald’s after his classes ended at Eagle. “I didn’t want to go to school over here (in Denver),” he said, but added, “I absolutely hate the bus system now.” Morales and Ebright credit the impact of their high school teachers for their career choice. Both now plan to become teachers. Morales will major in elementary education and Ebright, a ceramic artist, plans to be an art teacher. “Eagle really, really dug me out of a hole that I was in,” Ebright said. “It gave me a chance at graduating. “Every kid has a different story there, and the teachers understood that.” Morales doesn’t want other children to “get lost in the system,” as she nearly did before coming to the alternative high school. “There are a lot of different kids at Eagle Academy,” she said. “It really showed me how a teacher can affect your life, your perspective on school and education. I want to pay it forward.”

Schools’ security processes evolve Lessons learned from Arapahoe and other tragedies prompt changes By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Douglas County School District’s security plan constantly changes. In the wake of the Arapahoe High School tragedy, district leaders said they are making further adjustments to a system they already believe is sound, but never will be concrete. “Safety is not an event,” said DCSD chief operations officer Bill Moffitt. “It’s a process of continuous improvement. I think there are things we’ve already learned in Littleton we could deploy quickly, and there are other things I think deserve study with our law enforcement partners.” Near the top of the list are adjustments to district communications technology, which was overwhelmed by heavy traffic after the Dec. 13 Arapahoe High School shooting that ultimately left two students dead. Emails about DCSD’s response that were supposed to reach parents shortly after the incident arrived three or more hours later, eliciting a flood of complaints. “That particular incident highlighted and brought forward some concerns about technology and how quickly we could get that information out there,” internal communications officer Randy Barber said dur-

Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Cogil talk with students at Cougar Run Elementary during a fall 2013 event. Cogil is among the many officers who frequently visit schools as part of DCSD’s marshal program. File photo ing a security update presented at the Jan. 21 board meeting. “We’ll be doing testing of these systems as we go forward on a quarterly basis. That’s not something we’ve done in the past.” In addition to emails, parent notifications are sent by voicemail and text, and posted on DCSD’s website, Facebook and Twitter pages. While parent notification is important, school leaders said it’s not their first priority

in an emergency. “Our priority is going to be on the kids and making sure those buildings are taken care of first,” Barber said, referring to safety procedures including building lockdowns and secured perimeters. There also is a clear line between informing parents and releasing potentially harmful information. “It’s very clear the faster you can lock

down the better,” Superintendent Elizabeth Fagen said. “The faster law enforcement can respond, the better. (But) “We don’t want the bad guys to know our evacuation sites, how long it takes to roll our buses or contact our parents. We prepare as if it will happen but we hope that it never does.” DCSD’s security, perhaps most wellknown for the marshal program that circulates armed law enforcement officers through all schools twice daily, takes a multifaceted approach. “We believe not one single strategy will keep our kids safe,” Moffitt said. Enhancements include capital improvements like added cameras, improved exterior doors and established safe areas, as well as ongoing training and intervention programs. District staff also is emphasizing the relationship between physical and psychological health. “We understand there is a relationship and a crossover,” Moffitt said. In August 2013, DCSD launched its marshal program in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings. Officers from the Castle Rock, Lone Tree and Parker police departments, as well as the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, now make random, twicedaily visits to the district’s elementary and middle schools. The annual program cost, which reimburses the departments for the officers’ time, is about $674,000. Each of Douglas County’s nine high schools also is assigned an armed, uniformed school resource officer.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Douglas County School District both confirmed Jan. 31 that an investigation is underway surrounding a discrepancy within the district’s transportation department. Neither agency will say much beyond that, however, both citing the investigation’s incomplete status. A report from Denver’s 7News alleges about $11,000 is missing from the department, money reportedly given as cash in exchange for salvaging outdated district vehicles that was not deposited into school coffers. 7News says its investigation

prompted the sheriff’s office to open its own case on the issue, but DCSD says it had turned the matter over to authorities before the station learned about it. “The Douglas County School District discovered a discrepancy within the transportation department account,” states an email sent by DCSD spokeswoman Paula Hans to Colorado Community Media. “The district immediately turned the matter over to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office for investigation. “After our discovery, Channel 7 learned of the investigation and aired a story about this matter (Jan 30). Because this is an open investigation, we are unable to provide any further comment. We take the stewardship of taxpayer dollars very seriously and are cooperating fully with the investigation.” Douglas County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ron Hanavan said the case is new, but he

does not know how the discrepancy came to light. “I can confirm we opened up an investigation,” he said. “But we are very much in the infancy of the investigation and don’t have a lot of details. No one’s been charged. It’s still very much in the beginning.” 7News said their investigation began three months ago, and revealed that more than a dozen vehicles were crushed at a Brighton salvage yard in exchange for cash. Former DCSD transportation director Paul Balon retired from the district in December 2013 after an earlier 7News story showed that he allegedly used district funds to purchase taxexempt Sam’s Club cards for his wife and others. DCSD Chief Operations Officer Bill Moffitt, who oversees the transportation department, recently announced his retirement. He has worked for the district for more than 30 years.

One boy charged in SkyView incident Juvenile faces one felony and five misdemeanors for explosive device By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com A boy is charged with a felony and five misdemeanor counts tied to the Jan. 14 chemical rupture at SkyView Academy, according to a spokeswoman for the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. Although two boys initially were detained after the morning event that forced a school-wide evacuation and canceled classes for the rest of that day, only one was found culpable. The charges against him include one felony count of possession of an explosive or incendiary device, and five misdemeanor counts of third-degree assault. Four students and a teacher were taken to an area hos-

pital so medical staff could evaluate them for trauma and minor injuries related to the classroom incident that consisted of a chemical reaction in an unspecified container rupturing in the Highlands Ranch charter school. Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies initially weren’t sure if the act was accidental or intentional, but soon after characterized it as a malicious act. The case then was turned over to the district attorney’s office for the final determination of charges. Sheriff’s deputies confirmed the boy remains in custody. “We thank the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office for their partnership and detailed investigation of this matter,” DA spokeswoman Michelle Yi wrote in a text statement. “As this is an ongoing case that involves a juvenile, we cannot elaborate further on this case at this point.” SkyView is a preK-12 charter school located near C-470 and Quebec Street. About 1,200 students attend the Douglas County School District charter.

Hickenlooper addresses health Governor gives annual speech to Colorado Rotarians By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Expanded Medicaid and mental-health programs, strident environmental protections, a successful insurance exchange, a rapidly recovering economy and an influx of young people are converging to make Colorado the eighth-healthiest state in the nation, according to the United Health Foundation. “I’m proud of whatever we’re doing for Colorado, but it’s always about tomorrow,” Gov. John Hicklenlooper told a full house of Rotarians from around the state on Jan. 24 at the seventh annual State of the State Address to Rotarians. The event, held in the convention center at the Denver Marriott Tech Center, focused on a topic near and dear to Rotarians’ hearts: health. Locally, the service clubs support things like free clinics, Shots for Tots and Project CURE. Internationally, Rotary has spent millions eradicating polio in every country in the world except for Nigeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan, where efforts are ongoing. During his speech, Hickenlooper personally pledged $1,000 to support that work. Referencing the state’s recent tragic shootings, the governor took time to discuss advances in mental-health care. He spoke of a bill he signed last year that creates a “behavioral-health crisis-response system” to include things like mobile and walk-in clinics, expanded residential care, a 24-hour hotline, a public-awareness campaign, and outreach

Gov. John Hickenlooper, shown here during his State of the State speech in Denver on Jan. 8, recently spoke to Rotarians from around Colorado. File photo through schools — all available regardless of a person’s ability to pay. “Guns are only part of the puzzle,” he said.

SkyView hiring teachers for next year School looks to fill 16 classroom vacancies By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia@coloradocommunitymedia. com SkyView Academy is hosting an open house to fill teaching vacancies for the next school year, when its inaugural senior class is set to receive their diplomas. The event is scheduled for Feb. 22 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at the school, located at 6161 Business Center Drive in Highlands Ranch. The public charter school hosted an open house last year, and school board president Lorrie Grove said that success led to the decision to repeat the event this year. “It worked out really well to be able bring people to us,” Grove said. “We had a lot of people come last year. About 100 people last year came to talk to us and drop resumes off.” SkyView Academy teaches preschool through 12th grade and Grove said the charter school is hiring 16 new teachers for the 2014-2015 school year. Available subjects include: • Chemistry (high school)

• Rhetoric (high school) • Mathematics (high school and middle school) • History (high school and middle school) • Literature (high school and middle school) • Art (middle school) • Science (middle school) • Spanish (middle school) • Theater (middle school) • Classroom teachers and assistants (elementary and primary school) “We have a truly amazing team of teachers and staff who encourage our students to do their best and be their best every day,” said Lisa Nolan, SkyView Academy interim executive director. When SkyView Academy was founded in 2010, 518 students were enrolled from preschool to fifth grade. This year, the school houses 1,116 students from preschool to 11th grade. The school will graduate its first class in 2015. The school had 31 teachers on staff in 2010, compared to 76 this school year. “It’s been really exciting to see the growth as it rolls out,” Grove said. Candidates should bring their resumes to the school during the open house. To learn more visit at www.skyviewacademy. k12.co.us.

out and listening to rural Colorado,” he said. “We’re doing that now. And it’s no surprise, they’ve got some pretty good ideas.”

Lots of folks in the audience also had questions about how legalized marijuana will affect not just the health but the reputation of Colorado. The measure was voted into law by the people over his objections, he notes, and now the question is how to manage what he calls the “greatest social experiment of the century.” Hickenlooper hired the founder of Noodles and Company, Aaron Kennedy, as the state’s first marketing director last summer, and hopes the tourism industry will keep sending out positive, family-friendly messages about Colorado. But he doesn’t think daily life for Coloradoans will change much. “The people who smoke pot, who were buying it illegally, are now going to buy it legally,” he said. “The people who don’t smoke pot aren’t going to start.” He said he’d sent a letter to the White House to express disagreement with President Obama’s recent remark that pot isn’t as bad as alcohol. “It’s not as bad as heroin, but should it be legal? I voted against it,” he said. Going forward, Hickenlooper said he envisions the business community stepping up in many ways to further the physical, mental, fiscal and environmental health of the community. “Business has to be a partner in this conversation,” he said. “Business is always going to be more innovative and rapid than government.”

‘Smoke made with the fume of sighs’ I feel it in my fingers. I feel it in my toes. When I was a youngster at Burns Park Elementary in Ann Arbor, Mich., each row in my classroom had its own decorated box on Valentine’s Day. Since my artistic knacks were showing even then, I always decorated the box for our row. There was a slot in the top. The box would sit there for a few days before Feb. 14. We dropped in homemade and Hallmark valentines, and sometimes we dropped them in when no one was watching. I was just beginning to notice that girls were exquisite little assemblies of DNA. Audrey in particular. Near the end of the day on Feb. 14, the teacher asked us to open the boxes and hand out the valentines. I always had my share, but some kids didn’t. Some girls and boys had more than their share, and some didn’t have any, and that bothered me. So in the following years, I created valentines for everyone in the class. The look on Emily’s face made me

do it. Emily wasn’t very cute, and cute is everything in life. I made sure that Emily received at least one valentine. I spent a little more time on hers than I did on the others, and it paid off. Even though I didn’t sign it, I think she knew who drew it. Her smile was unforgettable. I am in love every day of the year, and I give Jennifer a little valentine of some kind every time she comes over. You see, love isn’t an assignment on one day in February. “St. Valentine’s Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus,” according to

Wikipedia. “The most popular martyrology associated with Saint Valentine was that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers, who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire.” Centuries later, Emily came up empty handed, when Feb. 14 developed into a celebration of romantic love. Humbug. On the day after Christmas, grocery stores pulled all of their Christmas items and replaced them with shelves full of hearts and chocolates. I cringed. Men stand in front of the cards and try to figure out which ghostwriter wrote something that they would say if they were capable of it. It is the bottom rung of romance. I guess if it’s your first year together, it might be OK. After that, buddy, you should let it show all the time. There are always unexpected consequences. Feb. 14 is the No. 1 day for private detectives, and I think that you can guess why. The wife gets a card, the mistress gets a necklace, and the wife hires a private eye.

If your mailbox is empty on Feb. 14, and you attach some sentiment to it, I’m your man. Maybe I can make a small difference. Robert Frost said, “Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.” But sometimes there are no takers. What then? Start with this. It always has to start with this. Love yourself. If you don’t love yourself, you can’t expect someone else to love you. A fortune teller told me that. Here’s another thought. Maybe loving someone isn’t necessary, but loving something is. Music, art, the heartbeat at my feet. They all do it for me. Jennifer and I add up to 113 years, but we are as goofy together as teenagers, and love manages to wipe away the years. Shakespeare said, “Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.” Happy Valentine’s Day from Emily and me. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

What’s in it for me?

Finally, a farm bill Congress, after months of prolonged bickering turned into years of unnecessary gridlock, finally passed a full, longterm farm bill. That means strengthened conservation programs, additional resources for managing our forests, funding for rural communities, improvements for rural energy efficiency, and needed stability for our farmers and ranchers. During the last several years we’ve heard one unified message from Colorado’s rural communities — give us certainty. From Fox Ranch in Joes to Talbott Farms in Palisade, our rural communities wanted to know what was taking Congress so long. The Senate was actually able to pass a bipartisan version of the bill as early as June 2012. But unfortunately, with that bill lodged in the House of Representatives, significant farm programs were allowed to expire in October. After muddling through a short-term extension, the House finally acted and both bodies and parties came together to work out the differences to agree on a final bill. While not perfect, the bill is the product of bipartisan, principled, and practical compromise. It decreases waste by ending the days of automatically issuing direct payments to farmers regardless of their need and helps Colorado producers hedge risk by strengthening crop insurance. The bill also improves farmers’ ability to export goods overseas, which will help continue Colorado’s record-setting pace in agriculture exports, and establishes a competitive grant program to support animal science research on priorities like food security. It also includes strategic investments in other growing industries such as organics — which is creating jobs at a rate of four times the national average — and energy pro-

grams, which are booming in rural parts of our state. The farm bill is not just important for our farmers and ranchers. It contains provisions that incent more opportunities for conservation easements and other ways to place more land in conservation. It upgrades the Healthy Forest Restoration Act of 2003 to prioritize treatments of national forest lands that have been devastated by insect outbreaks like the beetle kill. The bill also provides funding for USDA rural development loans and grants, which have helped countless businesses in rural Colorado open their doors or make needed expansions and improvements. One of our greatest accomplishments for Colorado communities in the farm bill is the restoration of the Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) program. PILT is designed to offset the loss of property taxes resulting from large tracts of federal land within county boundaries by providing federal payments to local governments. Colorado receives more PILT funding than all but four other states in the country. On the farm bill conference committee, we worked to include an extension of PILT in the final bill after it was omitted from the recent government funding measure. This farm bill process has been a long one, and I would like to thank all of the Bennet continues on Page 11

Have you ever heard of that radio station, WIIFM? You know the one that we seem to be most tuned into, “What’s in it for me?” Many of us, if not all of us are motivated or have been motivated by this concept at some point in our lives. And unfortunately, there are some people who are only motivated by this belief system. The good news is that there are many people who listen to another radio station, WCIDFY, “What can I do for you?” These people aren’t concerned about what they get out of it, they are truly just motivated to help out whoever they can, whenever they can, and wherever they can. They aren’t looking for any trade-offs or “I’ll scratch your back if you’ll scratch mine” type of reward or barter, they are simply giving from an attitude of gratitude. As a people our differences are what make life interesting and each encounter we share unique. The person who is wired with the belief system that there must be reciprocity in all situations isn’t necessarily wrong. And the person who operates out of a pure altruistic philosophy is not always necessarily right. Could it be that there really is no right or wrong, and that the whole idea of WIIFM or WCIDFY are just two different frequencies that we tune into based on who we are or what is happening in our lives at that moment? The salesperson who is motivated only

by a commission check will absolutely only spend time with customers or prospects where there is a high degree of confidence that the amount of time invested will yield a bigger return in commissions. Yet there are other sales people who focus on solving problems for customers, helping their clients find the right solution and are driven by their clients success not their own income. The interesting thing is this, when I interview sales people and business professionals from many industries, it is the sales person in the latter category that generates more income consistently over time. They are tuned into WCIDFY, “What can I do for you?” It’s not just sales professionals, what would all of our relationships be like if we changed our thinking and tuned into a new radio station, moving away from WIIFM to WCIDFY? I know it’s hard for some people to get their head around the concept of doing something, anything, Norton continues on Page 11

Highlands Ranch ‘water guru’ stepping down Hendrick to retire after 45 years in the business By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia@coloradocommunitymedia. com After nearly four decades of working with water in Highlands Ranch, John Hendrick, Centennial Water District general manager, is retiring. Hendrick’s involvement with the community predates the formation of Centennial Water and the sprawling subdivisions and town centers. In 1978, Mission Viejo, the original developer of Highlands Ranch, called on him while he was vice president of resources planning with the Jack G. Raub Company. “That’s when I became acquainted with Highlands Ranch,” Hendrick said. “There was no Centennial Water or (Highlands Ranch) Metro District. It was just an open space for development.” Hendrick said the development was not a “quick-flip” process. “Since I was involved, just looking at the community development plan and projections of water we would need. To have that vision physically and to see that unfold planning area by planning area, and filing by filing is tremendous.” He oversaw the water supply planning and implementation for the 22,000-acre development, providing Mission Viejo with consulting, planning with design and infrastructure so that the community had long-term viability. Before that he was a consultant in Pasadena, Calif. and a hydraulic engineer for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation on the Fryingpan-Arkansas project in Colorado. Hendrick was hired as the general manager of Centennial Water in the 1990s and started building a water supply system utilizing surface and groundwater. “John is a pillar of the water community in the South Metro region. Over his tenure at Centennial he built a robust conjunctive

for someone else and not receive something back in return. We live in a very competitive, dog-eat-dog, rat race of a society sometimes where it seems easier to barter, negotiate, and cover our backsides, remaining “self” focused instead of “others” focused. The thinking is this, “If I am looking out for everyone else, who is watching out for me?” Well I am a believer of the “What can I do for you?” philosophy. And as a believer of this philosophy I am never worried about who is watching out for me as I fully expect that I will watch out for myself and just hold myself accountable for what happens to me in my life.

John Hendrick is retiring after three decades of working with water in Highlands Ranch. Photo by Hannah Garcia use water supply system that is an example for the rest of the state,” said Eric Hecox, executive director of the South Metro Water Supply Authority. “Centennial’s ability to use surface water in wet times and groundwater during droughts gives the community a sustainable water supply.” While most water suppliers in Douglas County use groundwater sources, Hendrick is proud of the fact that Centennial Water supplies mostly from surface water sources. The company supplied 99 percent from surface water in 2011. “It’s kind of like the heart of the circulatory system, pumping under the surface,” Hendrick said of the water supply system. “I’m just proud to have seen those things come to fruition.” Hendrick, with Centennial Water, along with other area water suppliers, has worked for the last several years to bring more renewable water sources to Highlands Ranch. “John is definitely viewed as leader and a visionary in the water industry,” said Sherry Eppers, a spokesperson for Centennial Water that has worked with Hendrick for 17 years. “There’s a lot he’s been in-

farms, fighting fires, or building businesses on Main Street. The agriculture industry adds $40 billion to our economy annually and is essential to our state’s prosperity. Colorado producers and rural communities have been faced with unprecedented obstacles in the last few years, including severe drought in the southeast, historic levels of flooding on the Front Range, and devastating fires throughout the state. It’s about time we got this done for their sake. Democrat Michael Bennet has represented Colorado in the U.S. Senate since 2009.

But a strange thing happens and has happened throughout my life. I have found that the more that I do for others, and the more I give of myself for causes greater than my own, the more I find others are here for me too and that more good things happen in my life. I don’t expect it, I don’t look to serve in order to receive anything in return, it just happens. How about you, are you more tuned into the WIIFM radio, or have you experienced the benefits of listening in on the WCIDFY station? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com and when we live our lives to help others, with no expectation of anything in return, it truly will be a better than good week.

volved in: legislation, planning, water resource projects. He’s made a real impact.” In April, Hendrick oversaw Centennial Water sign on to the WISE partnership with five other members of the South Metro Water Supply Authority. The partnership now has 10 members and Douglas County has expressed a viable interest as well. Through the agreement, Aurora Water and Denver Water will provide roughly 7,000 acre-feet of fully treated water annually to participating members and deliver it in phases, starting in 2016. In exchange, participating South Metro WISE entities agreed to fund new infrastructure that will move the water from Aurora’s Binney Water Purification Facility to its end locations. Centennial Water is also participating in the Chatfield Reallocation Project, a federal study that will determine the feasibility of reallocating storage space in the Chatfield Reservoir in Littleton from flood control to joint flood control and conservation purposes. Mark Shively of the Douglas County Water Authority called Hendrick “the best resource we have on water issues” in the

South Metro area and in Douglas County, mainly due to his 45 years of experience in water resources and his PhD in civil engineering, with a focus in hydrology and water resources, from Colorado State University. “When I’ve needed a `go-to’ resource, I’ve called John to ask him what he thought of the situation,” Shiveley said. “John is an extremely exacting individual. As such, any time I was going to be working with him I made sure I had my facts in order. In this way he made me work harder and smarter. “John has been the fiercest advocate for the Highlands Ranch community, and a champion of success with regional water solutions. His departure will leave a huge hole in our collective knowledge of regional water issues. He will be missed.” State Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, said Hendrick “always had always had the best interest of Highlands Ranch at heart. “His dedication to securing a stable water future for us is why our community and others served by Centennial Water & Sanitation are in such good shape,” the former House Speaker said. “His thoughtful and passionate voice will be missed.” Hendrick has also served as a director and president of SMWSA and the Metro Denver Water Authority, a director of the Douglas County Water Resources Authority and co-chair of the Metro Roundtable. “I believe the successes at Centennial will be looked at by others for decades to come, and John should be proud of his accomplishments,” Hecox said. Hendrick said he is targeting June to officially retire, giving the company time to find and train a replacement. Although he is retiring from the general manager position, Hendrick did not eliminate the possibility of working with them in the future. “It’s kind of in my blood, and I want to relax, but I suspect there may be a very good chance I will engage is some kind of consulting down the road,” Hendrick said. “It’s really been extremely rewarding to put my tools to use, to create what I think is a great result.”

February 6, 2014

Efforts to stem energy mandates fails Senate Bill 252, which doubled the former renewable energy standard of 10 percent. But those efforts have failed, most recently as Jan. 30 when the House Transportation and Report Energy Committee killed a bill that sought to reduce the energy mandate to 15 percent. Rep. Ray Scott, R-Grand Junction, the bill sponsor, told committee members that the new standards are too high and they will hurt rural economies. “Has our policy been misdirected?” Scott said. “Are we putting too much pressure on different types of energy-related sectors?” Diana Orf of the Colorado Mining Association, speaking in support of Scott’s measure, said that last year’s Senate Bill 252 was passed “very hastily” and that the new standard “needs a second look.” “We believe the standard can be achieved, but it needs more time,” Orf said. Moffat County Commissioner John Kinkaid was more direct in his criticism of SB252, calling it a job killer for coal mining and power production employers in rural parts of the state. “I’m here today to say that I hope that the

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com Attempts to scale back implementation of increased rural renewable energy mandates suffered another set of defeats at the Capitol this week. Two Republican-sponsored bills that would have either lowered the bar on new energy standards on rural electric providers or that would have pushed back the implementation start date failed in separate legislative committees. New standards for rural electric providers will require that they generate 20 percent of their energy through renewable sources. The mandate is scheduled to take effect in 2020. Three GOP-backed bills that sought to undo those new standards have already been introduced this session, a year removed from the contentious passage of

Bills allowing for challenges die in committee By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A pair of Republican-sponsored bills aimed at making changes to the state’s mail-in ballot process died in committee hearings on Jan. 27. One bill would have given anyone the ability to challenge the validity of a mail-in ballot, while the other would have allowed voters to opt out of receiving ballots in the mail. Both measures failed in a Democrat-led committee, following partyline votes. The bills come a year after the state enacted a Democrat-sponsored elections overhaul bill, which in part requires that ballots be mailed to every Colorado voter. Republicans have argued that the new election law will result in voter fraud. Sen. Ted Harvey, R-Highlands Ranch, sponsored Senate Bill 79,

which would have given anyone permission to challenge whether someone is eligible to vote in a particular election or contest the validity of their mail-in ballot signature. Under the bill, a challenge to a mail-in ballot would have required that the ballot be reviewed by two election judges from different parties. If both judges determined that the person is ineligible to vote in the election, the voter’s ballot would be tossed. “This is an evolving science, the use of mail ballots,” Harvey told the Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee. “I think we can solve these issues, for the most part. Opponents of Harvey’s effort said that the bill would not give voters whose ballots are ruled ineligible the ability to appeal the judges’ decision. Peg Pearl of Colorado Ethics Watch, a nonprofit election watchdog organization, said that electors would have no recourse through the “vague, closed-door process that the voter would not be involved in.” Sen. Jessie Ulibarri, D-Commerce City, the committee chairman, also expressed concern that the bill could

end up disenfranchising Latino voters, whose residency status could be questioned “without cause,” just because they may be Spanish speakers. After committee members voted 3-2 to kill Harvey’s bill, they took the same action on SB 71, which was sponsored by Sen. Kevin Lundberg, R-Berthoud. Lundberg’s bill would have allowed voters to opt out of receiving mail ballots, if they prefer to vote at traditional polling precincts. “Many electors like myself would prefer to go vote and don’t like the security concerns of the ballot going through the mail,” Lundberg said. “They should have that option to simply opt out of the all-mail-ballot system.” Lundberg’s bill received support from the League of Women Voters and El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Wayne Williams. However, Pearl testified that the bill would create “a headache and nightmare for clerks,” who could have to deal with confusion over whether voters wanted to permanently opt out of receiving mail ballots, or just wanted to do so for a particular election.

percent cap on energy rate hikes, any hikes would be a burden on some living in rural parts of the state. “I know 2 percent doesn’t sound like much, but when you have people on fixed incomes who are struggling to coming out of this recession, 2 percent is a lot,” Lawrence said. Democrats on the committee believe the new standards will work. They also rejected a long-held Republican argument that last year’s passage of SB 252 was rushed through the Legislative process without enough input from rural Coloradans. “People were brought into the process and negotiations were long and hard,” said Rep. Cherilyn Peniston, D-Westminster. “I just didn’t want the public to be left with the idea that the bill was drafted without participation because I believe that would be a misconception.” That bill also died following a party-line vote of 8-5. The bills became the third effort seeking to undo to the new energy mandate standard to fail this session. On Jan. 15, a Senate committee killed a bill that sought an allout repeal of the new standards.

war on rural Colorado is over and that we can have a spirit of bipartisanship,” Kinkaid said. Scott’s bill was met with opposition by SB 252 supporters who said that Colorado is the home to great wind and solar energy resources, that those industries are creating new jobs here, and that the new standards will be a boon for new energy jobs here. “Coloradans are with us on this issue,” said Kim Stephens of Environment Colorado, an environmental advocacy group. “They want more clean, renewable energy.” The Democrat-led committee killed Scott’s measure following a party-line vote of 8-5. The day before Scott’s measure died, Rep. Kathleen Conti’s bill that sought to delay the implementation of the new standards until 2025 suffered the same fate. “We’re really not seeking to change much, but simply extend the deadline that was given,” Conti, a Littleton Republican, told the same committee. Rep. Polly Lawrence, a Douglas County Republican, a supporter of Conti’s bill, said that even though Senate Bill 252 puts a 2

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A bill that cleared a legislative committee on Jan. 30 is one that is certain to make Fido and Mittens happy. Senate Bill 39 would allow emergency medical responders to provide medical care to house dogs and cats. Medical personnel responding to emergency scenes do that now any way, but they’re actually not allowed to do so under current law. Because of that, EMTs put themselves at risk for litigation whenever they try to save an animal’s life. State Sen. David Balmer, R-Centennial, said the bill would change state law to allow fire department

districts to determine whether their crews can provide pre-veterinary care to animals. “EMTs give emergency care to dogs and cats now, but they’ve never done it lawfully,” Balmer told the Senate Health and Human Services Committee. Balmer said the bill would allow emergency personnel to provide “stabilizing care only,” such as providing oxygen, fluids and bandaging for hurt pets. After that, the animal gets taken to a licensed veterinarian for further care. Apryl Steele of the Colorado Veterinary Medical Association testified that the bill is important because dog and cat owners can often experience “disbelief, anger and pain” whenever they lose a pet. She said it’s not fair to emergency responders to have those emotions directed at them through a lawsuit, when all they were trying to do is help the animal.

“This bill is about allowing something that’s already being done to be done without a sense of liability,” Steele said. Mark Simon, a retired assistant fire chief with the Golden Gate Fire Department in Golden, echoed Steele’s comments about emergency crews facing the threat of litigation whenever they provide care to pets. “You can’t stick your neck out because someone might lop it off,” said Simon. Sen. Linda Newell, D-Littleton, said the bill goes a long way in providing peace of mind for people who love their pets. “This in not only for the cats and dogs, but for the owners too; for their mental health” Newell said. The bill passed the committee unanimously. The committee slated the bill for the Senate consent calendar, which means it will sail through the Senate when it comes up for a vote.

Bill allowing later bar hours advances Mesaure would permit watering holes to stay open as late as 4:30 a.m.

“I just don’t see the sense from the safety perspective why they should be open later.”

By Vic Vela

— Hannah Kenny, Centennial resident

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A legislative committee said “cheers” to a bill that would allow bars to stay open later, despite concerns that the measure could lead to more drunks being on the streets in the early morning hours. House Bill 1132 would allow cities and counties to determine for themselves whether to allow bars to stay open until 4:30 a.m — two and a half hours past the current statewide bar cutoff time of 2 a.m. Rep. Crisanta Duran, D-Denver, the bill sponsor, pointed to violent crime that occurs in downtown Denver at bar closing time, as motivation behind her bill. Duran said that when all bars close at the same time, “drunks spill into LoDo



streets.” She said that by allowing bars to stay open later, patrons will leave at 2, 3 or 4 in the morning, instead of the mass exodus that happens now. “This has been an issue that has been ongoing in the City of Denver for a long time,” Duran told the House Local Committee. Duran’s original drafting of the bill would have allowed bars to stay open until 7 a.m. However, the bill was amended to a 4:30 cutoff at the start of the hearing. Business groups and the Colorado Restaurant Association backed the bill after

Duran filed an amendment that allowed local governments to let bars stay open later, but would not give cities and counties permission to reduce bar business hours. Duran and legislation supporters said that the 2 o’clock bar closings put a strain on police who are doing their best to patrol downtown areas. Allowing bars to stay open later could help police with crowd control, supporters said. LoDo business owner Paula Grey said that that the “2 a.m. dump of thousands of people” into downtown streets needs to come to an end.

“This bill is addressing public safety,” she said. Not everyone agrees. Fran Lanzer, of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, said the bill could increase the number of drunks getting behind the wheel, through all hours of the night. Hannah Kenny, of Centennial, also worried about the possible dangers associated with people being able to party into the early morning hours. “That’s just terrifying to me,” she said. “I just don’t see the sense from the safety perspective why they should be open later.” The committee voted 12-1 to move the bill to a full vote in the House. The lone dissent came from Rep. Tim Dore, R-Elizabeth, who worried about people leaving bars after they close in one town, and then driving across city lines to bar hop at other watering holes that stay open later. Dore also wondered why the bill was being taken up at the Legislature, when this seems to be a problem unique to Denver. “We’ve been asked here to act as the Denver City Council,” Dore said.

Shooting Continued from Page 1

was “just amazing.” “She was the only truly honest person I’ve ever met,” McCoy said Feb. 1, fighting back tears while standing just yards from Klamo’s home. American Stitch, located near the intersection of Broadway and Mineral, remained closed the morning of Feb. 3. A memorial of flowers and a candle had begun outside the shop’s entrance. A note on the door told of Klamo’s death and said a fund would soon be set up to help her surviving children. “She was a nice lady, always worked very hard,” said Lisa Jung, owner of Highland Shoe Repair, a shop next door to American Stitch. Jung said Klamo, whose husband died years ago, was taking college classes in addition to her work at the store. “She wanted a better life.”

The son

Robert Klamo was a troubled young man, McCoy said. He believes the teen’s troubles cost Tatiana Klamo her life after the two had an argument the night of Jan. 31. “This stems from a problem with her son having mental illness,” he said. “She was trying to get him help.” At Mountain Vista High School in Highlands Ranch, officials were poised to provide support for Robert Klamo’s classmates. A statement from Mountain Vista Principal Michael Weaver was posted on the school’s website Feb. 1. The statement, in part, said: “I am deeply saddened to inform you that Robert Klamo, a sophomore at Mountain Vista High School, died over the weekend. … The District Crisis Team is working with school counselors and mental health professionals to ensure that both students and staff will have support. “Feelings can be especially overwhelming at a time like this. There is no one right way to express the sadness, grief, and confusion that students will feel when they encounter a tragedy. On the other hand, a student may not react outwardly at all. Students can be particularly vulnerable if this event reminds them about another loss or sadness in their own lives. ...”

A gun

Officials haven’t said what type of firearm Robert Klamo used. On Feb. 1, Spurlock said it was too early to know how the gun had been obtained.

Two upstairs windows used by a woman and a girl to escape a Jan. 31 standoff remained open the next morning as investigators searched the Highlands Ranch home. Photos by Chris Rotar Spurlock worked out of a mobile command center, a large vehicle parked on a street thick with snow. It had been little more than 12 hours since the standoff with the gun-wielding teenager came to a conclusion. At about 7:30 p.m. Jan. 31, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and other area law enforcement agencies responded to the home after reports of gunfire. Deputies confirmed four people were inside the residence. Neighbors were told to stay inside their houses. The Douglas County Regional SWAT team entered the home later in the night and found the two dead individuals. A sheriff’s office spokesman said “no law enforcement service weapons were discharged.” A neighbor who was walking his dog the morning of Feb. 1 said he heard a loud bang around 10 p.m. the previous night, likely just before the SWAT team entered Tatiana Klamo’s home. The same man, who asked not to be identified, said he saw the three younger residents of the home outside clearing snow off cars the morning of the shooting. “Everybody was happy and fine.”

Colorado Clowns teach students how to join their ranks, be it happy or sad By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia.com Nine clowns wearing full costumes instructed nine students about putting on makeup and doing skits at the Feb. 2 session of Clown College. “Colorado Clowns put on a clown college once a year,” Molly “Skiddles” Kleeman, Englewood resident and chapter president, said. “Students sign up for a variety of reasons and we try to help them develop the clown persona they want to present. Some students want to be light and funny and others a little more serious. But we try to help them become the clown they want to be.” This year’s clown college started in early January and is being held in the basement of the First Presbyterian Church in Englewood. On Feb. 2, this year’s students lined the table applying their makeup. There was lots of permanently smiling makeup faces being applied but Stacy Gibbs of Westminster, was one of those who opted for a different look, choosing to don the costume and put on the proper hobo clown makeup. “I love hobo clowns,” she said with a smile. “I still have a couple hobo clown dolls. I came to clown college to learn about creating the character. I think it is coming along well.” Lorene “Banjo” Stadig was the main instructor for the program. “The students come once a week for 10 weeks,” she said. “We teach them about applying makeup and a lot of the other things we do as clowns like putting on skits. At the end of the class, the students come in full costume and show us all the things they learned at our clown college. We have a graduation ceremony and our graduates join us as we take part in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.” Tammy Lichvar, a Littleton

Gibbs chose the hobo character and said the classes are helping her develop it. resident, said she came to clown college because she retired in October and she was looking for something to do to help people. “My inspiration was my 5-year-old granddaughter who passed away two years ago,” she said as she applied her makeup. “She spent a lot of time in the hospital and she loved the clowns who visited there. I am learning to be a clown so I can visit children in the hospital.” Lichvar said she is still trying to decide on the exact makeup she will adopt. “Just when I think I have found the right makeup for me, I decide to make changes and try something else. Picking the right makeup is hard,” she said. Looking ahead, she said she will wear a harlequin-style costume for graduation, and she is

looking forward to being in parades and said she hopes to join Caring Clowns that visit the hospitals. Longmont resident Kathy “Sanniann” Shook said there are two groups of Caring Clowns in the local area, one that visits Swedish Medical Center while she and some other clowns visit Longmont United Hospital. “We make the visits to try to bring patients what they need to help them,” she said. “Some patients welcome entertainment but other patients just want someone to hold their hands and talk to them to help break the boredom.” She said the clowns always get permission to make a visit and the clowns visit a patient for five minutes or less so not to tire the patient. The group visits Swedish patients once a month and the Longmont group visit patients about three times a month.

Jewish Family Service of Colorado welcomes Archie Manning, football star and legend in life, as the speaker for its 10th annual JFS Executive Luncheon fundraiser on April 30. The luncheon will be held at the Grand Hyatt Denver, 1750 Welton Street. Doors open at 11:30 a.m., and the program will start at noon. Tickets are $150 and sponsorship packages start at $1,500. For more information or for tickets, contact Dawn Richard at 720-2484605 or go to www.jewishfamilyservice. org/luncheon. All proceeds from the event will help support programs of JFS, including mental health counseling, senior and adult in-home care, disability and employment services, and family safety net services. Founded in Denver in 1872, JFS is a nonprofit community agency serving people regardless of age, race, faith, or income. When people think of Archie Manning, football immediately comes to mind. But Manning has inspired many with his warm personality, humor, drive, and commitment to family and community. Manning and his wife, Olivia, have three sons, Cooper, Peyton and Eli. Archie and Olivia raised their sons with the philosophy that, “It’s the right thing to do, so do the right thing.” The result, which Archie and Denver Broncos’ quarterback Peyton capture so clearly, is a tribute to the values that Americans hold dear: work hard, stand up for what you believe in, treat each person with respect, and be grateful for what you have and for what you have achieved. A former Pro Bowl quarterback and NFL MVP, Manning enjoyed a fabled football career, beginning at the University of Mississippi where he was named an All-American and is the only Ole Miss player to have his number retired. He was elected to the 50-Year All-South Team (1940-90), named one of the Top 25 Athletes of the Century in Louisiana, and he and his son, Peyton, were named among the 100 all-time greatest college football players. In 1971, Manning was the second player chosen in the NFL draft and the No. 1 draft choice of the New Orleans Saints. He set Saints’ passing records, played in two Pro Bowls and was named the NFL Most Valuable Player in 1978. His prowess on the field and his sterling character have earned him as many awards as he scored touchdowns. Archie Manning concluded his 15-year NFL career in 1985. Manning since has devoted his life to his family and to causes that he believes in, supporting the Special Olympics, Boy Scouts of America, The Salvation Army, and the United Way, among others.

A love letter and farewell Facebook post from 9News meteorologist and traffic specialist Amelia Earhart: “It’s now time to go all in with my career in aviation, inspiration, and the Fly With Amelia Foundation. Now through June, my focus will be on flight training, planning, and preparation for the around the world (of) flight. Beyond the global adventure, I have several opportunities to promote aviation, aerospace and the pursuit of passion and adventure. “Just like flight itself, it is a calculated risk that I am willing to make. ... My last day at 9News as a traffic reporter and weather forecaster will be April 11. I will, however, be back occasionally on a fill-in basis.

Boulder on top foodie list

Who knew? Forbes Travel Guide blog has named Boulder as one of the Five Secret Foodie Cities in a recent post. Here’s what it said: “Boulder may have a reputation for snow

bunnies and tapping the Rockies, but there’s much more happening here than ski lifts and beer (what ski lifts?). “Flagstaff House Restaurant, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-star rated restaurant and Boulder staple for fine cuts of meat and perfectly prepared seafood, is undergoing an extensive renovation that will be complete in February. “Chef Corey Buck recently opened a breakfast and lunch restaurant called Food at the Riversides. “And local foodies won’t let you leave until you know that Boulder is also home to five out of the country’s 118 master sommeliers. Boulder’s not just for skiing, folks (where, exactly?). Not anymore.” To see the rest of the story, go to http:// blog.forbestravelguide.com/five-secretfoodie-cities. Just ignore the skiing references, which clearly came from an out-of-towner. The nearest ski resort to Boulder is Eldora Mountain resort, about a 40-minute drive to the west (depending on the weather) in Nederland.

Clay objects go beyond functional Foothills show highlights evolution of ceramics

if you go

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com The Foothills Fine Art Center in Golden has staged more than 30 exhibitions focusing on ceramics as a medium since its initial show in 1974. During those years, ceramic artists nationwide have increasingly created more fine art pieces in addition to — and in some cases instead of — functional works. The Colorado Clay Exhibit has offered the widest cross section of artists working in clay in the area, with the exception of a national convention. A visit is most rewarding to art lovers, whether or not they are familiar with the ancient medium. One can respond to

“Colorado Clay Exhibition” runs through March 16 at Foothills Art Center, 809 15th St., Golden. Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays; 12 to 5 p.m. Sundays. Admission: $5 adults/$3 seniors/free, members and students with ID.

beautiful shapes and textures and at times marvel at “how did they do that?!” In 2014, an invitational component was added to the traditional juried process. Five well-recognized Colorado artists were invited to exhibit their work: Bebe Alexander, Heather Mae Erickson, Sara Ransford, Martha Russo and Maynard Tischler. This year’s juror is Doug Casebeer, the chairman of the Artists Residency Program and Director of Ceramics, Sculpture, Furniture Design and Woodworking at Anderson Ranch Art Center in Snowmass. He is internationally recognized and lectured on “Why We Need Artists in Our Communities” Jan. 25 at the Fine Art Center when the show opened.

Ceramic artist and Littleton business owner Kim Louise Glidden was one of the artists selected by Casebeer and is exhibiting her “Bison Bone,” a wood-fired clay sculpture that looks like an artifact. She said that traditionally Native American hunters approached the bison from the right, on horseback and aimed for the animal’s heart and lungs. In her scenario, the arrow missed and was later found embedded in thoracic vertebrae when the animal was killed. Glidden is owner of the Pottery Studio Gallery, as well as a teacher. She offers artworks by more than 50 artists in her spacious shop at 5739 S. Curtis St. in Downtown Littleton, which was once a 1920s Buick dealership. Four of the artists who sell ceramic work through her shop are also included in the competitive Colorado Clay Exhibit: • Bob Smith, teacher at Arapahoe Community College. • Todd Redmond of Westminster, a member of the Boulder Pottery Guild who produces brightly glazed sculptural and functional pieces. • Robin Furuta, also an ACC instructor, whose functional works have been exhibited in the college gallery. • Jerry Rhodes of Colorado Springs, who creates Raku and art pottery. Twenty-eight other artists were also juried into this large, always interesting exhibit. Each was allowed to enter five items for judging.

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com “Music has and always will bring happiness to people and holds the power to lift our minds away from daily stresses,” says local music specialist Linda Holcombe. Recognizing that there have been cutbacks in music programs in some Douglas County elementary grades, she proposes to start Douglas County Singers for children in grades 1 to 6, with a first rehearsal set for Feb. 13. Holcombe, now retired after 25 years of teaching music to children at all levels, including in Douglas County, is currently the music director at Christ Lutheran Church on South

Broadway in Highlands Ranch, where she will hold rehearsals and programs of the newly formed choirs. Eventually, she hopes to take additional performances out into the community. There will be two choirs, limited to 50 children each: a Primary Choir for grades 1 to 3 and Intermediate Choir for grades 4 to 6. Both will meet on Thursday afternoons from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m. and 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. There will be no auditions, Holcombe said, stating that the choirs are open to anyone who wants to try. “Kids can learn about the world, gain social skills and even improve math abilities,” she said. “That all happens through music. The goal is to welcome all regardless of experience.” The non-profit organization hopes

FREE TO THE PUBLIC!

to make participation affordable and accessible for all, eventually gaining some community sponsorships. It will offer a wide variety of music: jazz, Broadway, classics and standards — “it’s important to have broad exposures.” The first performance will be June 1, and according to Holcombe, summer rehearsals are a question at this point, but a short-term camp is a possibility. Definitely, spring and fall sessions are planned, she said. Tuition will be $185 for Primary Choir and $215 for Intermediate, which includes all expenses, such as an accompanist, a director, music library and performance expenses.

Classic fairy tale told in dance Cinderella springs to life on Denver stage By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia. com Happily ever after… The tale of Cinderella is very much embedded into our collective cultural baggage — especially those of us who were, or who have lived among, princesses. Seeing Cinderella, her mean stepmother and stepsisters and, of course, the charming prince, puts one into a satisfying fantasy world for a couple of hours. And seeing the characters portrayed by beautiful dancers is even better.

Cupcakes go gourmet in Lone Tree shop Smallcakes offers sweet treats in array of tasty flavors By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia. com As owner of the recently opened Lone Tree Smallcakes, Heidi Hamilton is in the business of making people smile. “People are happier when they eat,” said Hamilton, who co-owns the gourmet cupcake shop with her husband Darren. And that makes Hamilton’s work a piece of (cup) cake. The Castle Rock mother spends her mornings baking cupcakes and also helps serve them to customers. “This doesn’t feel like work,” she said. “It always feels like Saturday.” Smallcakes offers 120 flavors of cupcakes, with 12 varieties baked fresh each day. Flavors range from unusual — like maple bacon and chai tea — to the more traditional chocolate cream and pink vanilla. The cakes range in size from mini to large, with the most popular large size priced at $3.25 apiece. “They’re big — twice as big as a cupcake you’d make at home,” Hamilton said. The colorfully frosted cupcakes are popular choices for birthday parties and weddings. And unlike a traditional cake, Hamilton said, “You can mix and match so everyone can get what they want.” The business is a happy surprise for the Hamilton, who wasn’t planning to open a cupcake franchise. But in researching the ideal franchise, Smallcakes

Heidi Hamilton, above, and her husband Darren are co-owners of the recently opened Smallcakes in Lone Tree. Photo by Jane Reuter repeatedly popped onto her computer screen. Hamilton was seduced not only by its sugary appeal, but the franchise’s rapid growth. Franchise founder Jeff Martin, 35, and his wife Brandy opened the first Smallcakes in Kansas City in 2009. The franchise now includes almost 60 shops in 13 states. The Lone Tree store is Colorado’s only Smallcakes. So far. “We hope to expand to other loca-

tions,” Hamilton said. Smallcakes is among several national cupcakes chains. The cupcake craze was sparked in 2000 by a “Sex and the City” episode in which two of the main characters chatted over gourmet cupcakes. The 2010 debut of the Food Network show “Cupcake Wars” further fueled the single-serving dessert’s popularity. Smallcakes’ founder Martin competed during three episodes of the show.

Art offerings in Italy En plain air photography and painting offered through ACC By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com For a number of years, Arapahoe Community College has offered summer art and travel programs to France and Italy, where students paint or photograph with instructors. Painters learn to work outside — en plein air — and both disciplines of students learn to work with special light, color, contrasts and unique locations. “Art in Italy” is the 2014 version, (May 17-June 1) with ACC painting instructor Marsha Wooley and photography instructor Trish Sangelo. The course will be

headquartered at La Romita, a 500-yearold monastery-turned-art school in Umbria. Rooms and dining facilities are on two upper residential floors and the location is surrounded by olive groves. “We have room for a few more students,” Sangelo said last week. The first orientation session has already taken place, but students can start late and catch up if they enroll now. (Next session begins Feb. 22.) Wooley, a nationally recognized landscape artist, will focus on teaching “particular concerns and methods associated with Italian landscape and cityscape.” La Romita will arrange transportation to surrounding cities. Sangelo’s photography students will “learn creative methods associated with documenting Italian landscape,

cityscape and people.” There will be a final critique and an exhibit at ACC following the trip. The estimated total cost is about $5,535 depending on airfare. This includes tuition, insurance, air and La Romita. Marsh Wooley is contact person for prospective students and can be reached at 720-851-1936 or marsh.wooley@arapahoe.edu. Wooley attended a workshop at La Romita last year and can talk about the facility and experience — which was positive enough for her to want to share with students. More information is available on the college webpage: www.Arapahoe.edu/ artinitaly. Before registering for Art 276, 101 and 102, please contact Wooley as noted above.

GUARD PLAY SPARKING FALCONS Highlands Ranch girls facing tough tests in league play By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com Ciera Morgan never realized how easy her new leadership role would be this season. Morgan, a 5-foot-9 senior who will play for the University of Denver next season, is the lone returning Highlands Ranch starter off last year’s Class 5A state runnerup team, but it seems the Falcons have reloaded this season. Highlands Ranch, No. 2 in Colorado according to the CHSAANow.com girls poll and No. 22 in the MaxPreps Xcellent 25 national rankings, downed No. 5 Castle View, 60-47, Jan. 28 in a Continental League contest played in Castle Rock, before faltering to No. 8 ThunderRidge to close the week. “We lost five seniors last year but the sophomores and Logan (Opheim) have definitely stepped in,” said Morgan. “It’s great to play with them. We have definitely grown from day one. We are miles ahead of where we were at the start of the season. “I’m having a pretty good year but my team has a lot to do with that. When you are surrounded by great girls it makes it easy to play well. They make it easy to lead and I love leading them. Sometimes they need it and sometimes they can do it on their own.” Highlands Ranch’s three guards, Morgan, 5-4 sophomore Symone Starks and 5-5 junior Opheim keyed the Falcons win over Castle View. “They are the strongest part of our team,” said Falcons coach Caryn Jarocki who notched her Colorado all-time best 521st career coaching victory with the triumph over Castle View. The three guards combined for 46 points in the key league win. Morgan, who is averaging a team-high 16.5 ppg, scored 18 points. Starks, who came off the bench as a freshman last year, had 20 points with 13 of those coming in the second half. And Opheim, who also saw varsity playing time last season, contributed eight points.

ThunderRidge players Brittany Birdsey (10) and Taylor Reiner (42) surround Highlands Ranch’s Symone Starks (21) as she attempts a shot Jan. 31 in the ThunderRidge gym. Starks finished with 14 points for the Falcons as the Grizzlies went on to a 55-43 victory. Photo by Paul DiSalvo Highlands Ranch pulled away from the Sabercats despite a brief stretch when the Falcons were bothered by the Castle View press. Five of the eight turnovers committed by Highlands Ranch came in the second half but the Falcons slowed the pace down the stretch and scored their last 10 points at the foul line in the final 3:18 of the game. “I thought we did a good job of handling

their physical play because it was pretty rough out there,” said Jarocki. “I thought we tried to crumble under pressure in the fourth quarter but we figured that out too. We learned a lot of things. “The kids keep learning and they keep listening to me. They are practicing really hard and it fun to coach them because they actually try to do what I say.” Castle View did most of its damage

inside. Forward Jess McGovern, a 6-0 senior, collected a game-high 21 points and 6-3 senior pivot Maya Brown added nine points. “Jess had a good game,” said Castle View coach Matt Hema. “She finished a lot around the basket. ... That was a tough game to lose. We got what we wanted. We ran the ball well, we got open 3s, we got the ball inside, we got fast break transition hoops, we just didn’t finish well. “It’s kind of the same old story for us. If we finish those, we’re up there with the best in the state. If we don’t we’re just somewhere around the middle. Once Highlands Ranch took the lead it was tough to come back. They certainly worked the ball in their stall very well. They had patience with the basketball. Highlands Ranch is in the top 25 in the country and we were hanging with them.” The Castle View game was the first of a tough stretch for the Falcons. Highlands Ranch (15-2, 4-1 Continental) dropped their first league contest against ThunderRidge Jan. 31, falling 5543, and then had to face Regis Jesuit in a Feb. 5 showdown at home. The Falcons play at Rock Canyon Feb. 8 and still have to face Mountain Vista in the regular season finale on Feb. 20. Regis, top ranked in Colorado and No. 5 in the MaxPreps Xcellent 25 national poll, beat Highlands Ranch twice last season including a 53-46 victory in the state championship game. “Our league is brutal,” insisted Jarocki. “ If you survive the league, you are probably black and blue by the end.” Highlands Ranch started to turn black and blue in their Friday night defeat. Alyssia Martinez and Taylor Rusk, both sophomores for ThunderRidge, paced the Grizzlies with 14 points apiece as TRHS snapped the Falcons’ 12-game winning streak. The Regis team was on hand to watch the game. No. 8 ThunderRidge improved to 12-4 overall and 5-0 in the Continental League as they beat the Falcons for the first time since 2005. Morgan and Starks each had 14 points for Highlands Ranch in a losing effort.

Grizzlies cruise to 35-point win ThunderRidge tops Littleton in runaway fashion By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia. com ThunderRidge hit on all cylinders Jan. 28 as the boys basketball team posted a 6328 win over Littleton. The Grizzlies found the range for outside shots, scored on fast-break opportunities and dominated the boards from the opening tipoff until the final buzzer. “It was a good night for us,” ThunderRidge coach Joe Ortiz, a Littleton High School graduate and former coach, said. “We are young and establishing our style. Tonight we played a fast-paced game. I think we can get better looks if we push the tempo.” Following the win over Littleton, the Grizzlies lost to Highlands Ranch to close the week, slipping to 10-7 overall and 3-2 in the Continental. ThunderRidge was at home Feb. 4 against Heritage and the league battles continue Feb. 7 as the Grizzlies are at home against Mountain Vista and, on Feb. 11, they are on the road at Chaparral. ThunderRidge got things going early in the Jan. 28 game at Littleton, building a 13-3 lead midway through the first quarter. ThunderRidge had a height advantage with Zach Pirog, a 6-10 junior a force inside and three other players 6-5 or taller,

enabling them to control the boards on both ends of the court. The Grizzlies frequently turned offensive rebounds into put-back points. Littleton trailed 28-16 at halftime but came out playing a more aggressive defensive style. They battled hard but couldn’t bridge the early scoring deficit. Elias Tiedgen led the Grizzlies scoring with 21 points that included three baskets from three-point range. Noah Szilagyi had 12, Austin Mueller had 10 and Pirog had nine points, while leading the team with 17 rebounds and five blocked shots. Jay Crawford was the team leader in assists with eight and Mitch Bloom had four blocked shots. The Grizzlies hauled down a total of 40 rebounds, twice as many as Littleton and they hit 10 of 20 shots from three-point range. Tiedgen said it was a good night for him and for his team. “Our offense had good movement and good flow all night,” he said. “I don’t have a spot where I set up to shoot an outside shot. I just like to read what is going on and, when I am open, I take the shot.” He said the fast-paced tempo was the team’s style and it is fun. “Our big guys dominated the boards and blocked shots to help us,” he said. “We play our best when we play the fast pace style. I think this game helps strengthen our confidence in what we do as we continue to play games in our very competitive league.”

From flat-lined to the pitcher’s mound Highlands Ranch grad recovers from scare By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com Whenever Christian Schneider walks to the mound this season for the Hastings (Neb.) College baseball team he will obviously be thinking about strikeouts and inducing groundball outs like any other collegiate pitcher. However, Schneider now has a different perspective. He’s just thankful to be alive. His heart “flat-lined” twice while he was home in Highlands Ranch for what turned out to be a terrifying holiday vacation from school. After playing touch football for three hours at a friend’s house, Schneider felt fatigued and fainted while watching the Dec. 23 Monday Night Football game. He called his dad, Brian, and was driven home figuring he was just dehydrated. “I was kind of scared with all that was happening,” recalled Schneider who pitched for the 2010 Highlands Ranch baseball team. “There were a couple times when I was home that I would get dizzy and have like a weird dream state and pass out. Then I’d wake up and feel pretty much normal, just a little bit confused on why it happened. That’s when we went to the hospital.” He had a seizure where his heart stopped for 12 seconds while at the hospital and then spent the night in ICU. On Dec. 24 he “flat-lined” again, this time for 15-20 seconds. Specialists and cardiologists were stumped that a college athlete in good health could have episodes where his heart temporarily stopped beating. It was determined that it was an electrical issue possibly caused by a sinus infection that was discovered in a CAT scan that was causing his heart to pause but his body each time restarted his heart.

Christian Schneider, who played sparingly as a high school student at Highlands Ranch High, now pitches for Hastings College in Nebraska. Courtesy photo To avoid any more episodes, Schneider had a pacemaker installed under his left collarbone on Christmas morning. His discharge diagnosis read syncope, bradycardia, and acute sinusitis.

Finding his way to the mound Schneider has remained determined to pitch during his senior year at Hastings and after a month of limited physical activity, he was back throwing baseballs with his team during the last week of January. “I would definitely say I’m fortunate,” he said. “It was a pretty scary time but I’m

glad we got all of it taken care of. I thank God every day. “I was cleared to do pretty much anything. While I was out I could still do things that didn’t involve my left arm so I was riding a stationary bike a lot and doing some light lifting with my right shoulder just to keep my arm in shape. I could pretty much get right back into it after a couple days of throwing.” Brian Schneider and his wife Jenny were happy Christian came home for the holidays. “As parents we just count our blessings,” said Brian Schneider. “It was both the worst

Christmas and best Christmas ever. It was very fortunate that he was home when this happened. We are so proud of him because of his toughness and that he always kept his spirits up and never once doubted that he would be back on the mound throwing again and helping his team win games. “Baseball and pitching is something he has worked so hard to get to where he is and that determination and strong will was truly instrumental in making it through a difficult time. We are blessed that we have such a good kid with a very special heart.” Doctors will check the pacemaker every six months to make sure it is working correctly and every 10 years the pacemaker will need to be replaced, but for now Schneider is just happy to be able to pitch. Schneider, who played sparingly at Highlands Ranch, has pitched in 14 games at Hastings, a NAIA school in Nebraska, over the past three seasons. He has hopes of being a mainstay this spring. The Broncos opening series Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 was postponed because of snow but Hastings will play in an Oklahoma City Tournament Feb. 8-9. “My arm feels like a million bucks after taking a month off,” said Schneider. “I’m looking forward to having a real good season. We have a new coach (Steve Spongberg) this year and a whole different feel in the locker room. So I’m really glad I can be out there with my teammates and hopefully we’ll have a real good season. “I’ve made huge strides every year in college. Coming out of high school, I almost got cut from the varsity team. I ended up being able to pitch in college and I’ve pitched a little more each year. The bounds I’ve taken from last year to this year are huge. My control is way better, I’m throwing a lot harder, I’m a lot more confident and all my pitches are a lot sharper. “Going into this winter, my coaches told me I was going to be one of the starters this spring. So I was a little disappointed when all this heart stuff happened but I definitely think I’ll be able to work myself back into a starting position.”

Reaching

higher to achieve success.

“I chose UCCS because I wanted to stay close to home. For someone coming out of high school who is looking for strong academic programs, UCCS is a great choice.

Weber State-bound Braxton a force inside Highlands Ranch senior dominates the post for Falcons By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com Zach Braxton is a 6-foot-9, 245-pound dominating post player for the Highlands Ranch boys basketball team. A force inside, he’s one of the reasons the Falcons are challenging for the Continental League title. Braxton, a senior who is bound for Weber State in Utah, is averaging a double-double this season, scoring 18.9 points and grabbing 13.3 rebounds a game. He had 17 points, 10 rebounds, three blocked shots and five assists in Highlands Ranch’s 66-49 win over ThunderRidge on Feb. 1 in the Falcons’ gym. ThunderRidge used several players, double teams and physical play to try to neutralize Braxton but nothing worked. “The games are physical and when you are this big, people like to beat on you,” said Braxton. “You just have to keep your composure so you don’t get a technical or something like that, play through it and use your teammates when you don’t have anything. “I feel that involving my teammates is the best way to beat a double team. We get open threes and open cuts to the basket and that’s a great way to get points on the board.” Both Falcons coach Bob Caton and ThunderRidge mentor Joe Ortiz lauded Braxton who had suffered from a knee ligament irritation as a youth and took ballet to help his agility. “He’s a very strong player,” said Caton.

Braxton had 17 points and 10 rebounds in the win. Photo by Jim Benton “He’s such a great person and he’s so coachable. He does everything you ask him to do. “He gets open and we’ve got guys getting him the ball. That’s what it’s all about, him getting open and other guys making passes to him. He sees the floor really well for a big kid. He has really let the game slow down, he looks for the open man.” Ortiz declared that Braxton is an All-State player. “Braxton is the best post player in the state,” he said. “We didn’t have any answers for him. We have some big kids with some size but the biggest factor is he outweighs our

bigs by 50 pounds. He’s extremely skilled. He’s a tremendous player.” Highlands Ranch took charge early against ThunderRidge and never trailed after the first four minutes of the game. The Falcons shot 58 percent from the field and were 24 of 35 from the foul line. ThunderRidge attempted only 15 free throws in the game, making 12 of them. “We made some dumb fouls,” admitted Ortiz. “We made four illegal screens. We made some dumb defensive fouls. They were in the double bonus (from) the first quarter (on). We fouled them a lot and we were in foul trouble

trying to play all sorts of guys against Braxton. He was a horse.” Braxton missed his first five free throw attempts but finished the game 9-for-16 at the strike. “I don’t know what it was, I wasn’t nervous,” said Braxton about his accuracy at free throw line. “They just weren’t falling but as soon as they started to go, it got easier and I started to make them.” Ryley Stewart, a 6-4 transfer from Douglas County, topped the Falcons with 18 points and handed out four assists. Evan Motlong had 10 points, a team-high six assists and four steals. Keith Coleman also had 10 points for Highlands Ranch. “We wanted to get good shots, we got good positioning and they were fouling us,” said Caton. “There were a few early that didn’t fall but we shot free throws pretty good. “It was a great team effort. Eric Dynes is in there getting rebounds (five) and loose balls, Cole (Sundlof) comes off the bench and Sullie (Patrick Sullivan) comes off the bench and hits a big-time three. We’re playing pretty good basketball but all it means is we have to get ready for the next game.” Highlands Ranch (12-5, 5-0 Continental) played at Regis Jesuit Feb. 4 before hosting Rock Canyon in a Feb. 7 contest. “We want to win this league pretty bad,” said Braxton. “Our defense is starting to come together, everybody is starting to play for the team and it’s starting to look good for us.” ThunderRidge was led by Elias Tiedgen’s game-high 20 points against Highlands Ranch. The Grizzlies (10-7, 3-2) entertained Heritage Feb. 4 and Mountain Vista Feb. 7. “I still believe in our kids,” said Ortiz.

SPORTS ROUNDUP Mountain Vista tops Regis Jonathan Moore’s short jump shot with two seconds left gave the No. 4 Mountain Vista boys basketball team a 60-58 win over No. 5 Regis Jesuit in a Continental League clash Jan. 28 in the Golden Eagles gym. Mountain Vista squandered a 17-point third quarter lead and it took Moore’s lastsecond heroics for the Golden Eagles to remain unbeaten in the league at 4-0 and improve to 17-1 overall on the season. A year ago, almost to the day, Mountain Vista ended Regis’ four-year Continental League home winning streak with a 77-73 win over the Raiders on Jan. 29, 2013 in

Regis’ Guy Gibbs gym. It appeared Regis’ rally was going to be enough to avenge last year’s setback especially when Mountain Vista’s leading scorer Jake Pemberton fouled out. Moore’s winning shot, off an assist from Ray Beresford, stymied the Raiders comeback, however. Beresford and Carson Simon each had 13 points for the Golden Eagles, as Pemberton wound up with seven points, five rebounds, five assists and four steals. Moore, a 6-foot-2 senior, also had seven points. Mountain Vista moved to 18-1 overall and 5-0 in league play with a win over Douglas County three nights later.

National signing day Feb. 5 was the day high school athletes could sign letters of intent for students enrolling in college for the 2014-15 season. Each sport has different dates for binding letters of intent to be signed and the following lists were compiled from commitments reported prior to Feb. 3. Several of the athletes could have signed letters of intent last fall. Letters of intent are not valid at service academies but athletes intending to enroll at Air Force, Army and Navy are included.

after seeing the burgeoning social media campaigns. “I would have been a little disappointed if our kids weren’t unhappy about this and (weren’t) supporting Bailey, because we want him to play,” McCabe said. “Our kids and our community were huge allies.” In response, the Colorado High School Activities Association released a statement claiming the athletic body’s initial decision was made for Roby’s safety as well as other players’ and that it will now work on a gameby-game basis to approve Roby’s participation in future games. Roby will be allowed to play as long as both schools have an agreement for certain safety parameters. When CHSAA made its original decision, the high school sports authority based it on National Federation of State High School Associations rule 3-5-1 — which states that state associations can “provide reasonable

accommodations” to individuals with “disabilities and/or special needs” and “extenuation circumstances” as long as those accommodations do not “fundamentally alter the sport, heighten risk to the athlete/others or place opponents at a disadvantage.” CHSAA assistant commissioner Bert Borgmann said that although Roby’s prosthetics do not alter the outcome of a game or cause a disadvantage, safety was a factor. “When asked for the waiver of the rule, I had to look at the potential risk to the student and those around him,” Borgmann said. “I determined that the potential was enough that I could not give the waiver.” McCabe did not agree with that initial decision. “Did I understand what the justifications were? Yes. Did I agree? No,” McCabe said. “I didn’t like it at all. But I did absolutely see where CHSAA was coming from.” Borgmann said that the organization allowed Roby to play in the Littleton contest on Jan. 24 after discussing parameters to limit risk, but the understanding at the time was that was a one-time allowance for Roby. McCabe responded by leading the effort to get

Roby off the bench for his first home game of the year. “We discussed only the Littleton game and really did not look at future games,” Borgmann said. “As we moved forward with this, and with the success of the parameters established in the Littleton game, both parties (CHSAA and Mountain Vista) determined that a game-by-game assessment could perhaps allow for additional participation.” When asked why there are safety concerns with Roby playing varsity basketball this year and not last year when he played junior varsity, Borgmann said “it really is the physical nature and speed of the game that differs from junior varsity. “I remain concerned that without some of the parameters in place, the potential for injury to Bailey and others might have been increased. With the parameters in place, that risk is significantly minimized.” McCabe said although the school and CHSAA were already discussing Roby’s possible future participation and that public reaction may have “expedited the process.” Roby’s father said concerns about the senior posing a safety risk was unfounded,

although he said he is glad that it appears CHSAA will make some accommodations for his son. “I think it’s ridiculous,” Scott Roby said. “I don’t think Bailey is a hazard to anyone on the floor and certainly not to himself. He’s been in hundreds of practices and he played junior varsity last year. If he falls down, he gets back up.” Scott Roby said that Bailey has never sustained any major injuries and has not caused any harm to other players of which he is aware. “He might not get in a game situation, but we’re OK with that. We don’t expect him to play, that’s the coach’s decision. It’s just the part about being ineligible that we have an issue with,” Scott Roby said. Bailey Roby said the response from school officials and coaches has been mostly positive. “They just want to see me on the team,” he said. Roby appeared again in the team’s Jan. 31 game against Douglas County, finishing 0-for-1 from the field in the Golden Eagles’ 75-59 victory.

CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) An explanation you requested seems to be more confusing than enlightening. You should insist on clarifications now, rather than deal with problems that might arise later. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) Your energy levels might be ebbing a bit. But that’s no excuse for taking catnaps when you could be working on those unfinished tasks. There’ll be time to curl up and relax by week’s end. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) It’s a good time to get those ideas out of your head and into a readable format if you hope to have them turned into something doable. A good friend is ready with worthwhile advice. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Careful -- you might be stepping into dangerous territory if you decide to “exaggerate” the facts too much. Remember: The truth speaks for itself and needs no embellishment. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) Although your workplace successes have earned you many admirers, there are some colleagues who are not among them. Be careful how you proceed with your new project. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) You might have to go into great detail to explain why you’re currently reluctant to make changes to an already prepared plan. Be sure you have all the facts to back yourself up. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Travel plans might still be uncertain. But instead of getting upset about the delay, open yourself up to other possibilities, and begin checking out some alternative destinations. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) Changing conditions might require you to alter some of your plans. While you might be agreeable to this, be prepared with explanations for those who do not want changes made. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Although you might have to deal with some detractors who aren’t too kind in their critiques, you gain points when you’re willing to stand up and defend your work.
