Student’s research forwarded to FBI Teen tested chemical used to fight crime By Hannah Garcia

For one SkyView Academy student, what started as a science fair project has put her on the road to a passion for criminology. Last October, Casey Knapke, 16, said she was watching “Bones,” a popular crime drama revolving around a forensic anthropologist, when she noticed that a certain chemical mixture was not kept at a controlled temperature like others. “That’s when the question popped in my head: `Would luminol work better at a colder temperature?’” Knapke said. Luminol, a substance used to detect blood at crime scenes, will give off a blue glow when the spray comes into contact with blood particles and is illuminated with a black light. This is due to a chemical reaction between a number of chemicals and hemoglobin, a protein that carries

oxygen in the blood. After a cursory search in which Knapke didn’t see previous research on the topic, she decided to do her own study of the effects of temperature on luminol. Using a spectrometer, a tool used to measure the properties of light, she discovered that the luminol “worked better” when stored at an optimum temperature of 38 degrees. “Storing it at colder temperatures increased the fluorescence or the glow, and it also increased the length of time that it glowed,” Knapke said. The project earned her fourth place at the Colorado State Science and Engineering Fair in April and a berth to the International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles in May, but she was unable to attend.

Food is foundation of bridge to future As a family approaches the stand, Monse Hines smiles and offers: “Do you want a sample?” “No,” Greg Elliott says. “We know it’s good.” He looks at his wife. “Two zucchini, two hots?” He glances at the small container on the table. “And a thing of this stuff.” “OK,” Monse says. “Thirteen dollars.” “Oh,” Greg says. “Give us one more of each.” The “each” is a pupusa, a traditional El Salvadoran food the size of a small tortilla made of corn masa filled with various ingredients — in this case, beans or zucchini, corn chile poblano and mozzarella or the “hot” mirasol roasted peppers. The “stuff” is curtido, a pickled cabbage slaw, also from El Salvador. “We tried them last summer,” Greg says, “and we really got hooked on them.” And, adds his wife, Danielle, there’s Monse (pronounced Mohn-seh). “She’s very sweet.” Monse Hines is sweet. She is small with earnest brown eyes and long, brown hair casually pulled into a ponytail. She wears faded jeans with a blush pink blouse and a silver necklace with a medallion of Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus. Her nails are bluntly cut, no polish. Her smile is friendly and easy, like the conversation with her customers, many of them regulars at this farmers’ market. But don’t be fooled. Monse Hines, 34, is bold and brave, too — so much so that she made her entrepreneurial dream come true, one small, risky step at a time. And she did it despite being a newcomer to this country, this language, this culture. In a few short years, she has built a business that could be her family’s future. In the process, she has firmly cemented the roots of her El Salvadoran home into the foundation of her new one — adding yet another cultural ingredient to the melting-pot land we live in. “I think we all have the ability to come out ahead,” she says, intently, in Spanish. “Solo se necesita un sueño.” All you need is

a dream. Flavored with heaps of determination. “No existe la suerte,” she says. “Cada quien se hace la suerte.” Luck doesn’t exist. Each person makes his own luck. Monse should know. She was born in a Salvadoran town so small it doesn’t have a stoplight and there are few cars, anyway. Her parents taught in a high school in a nearby city, about half the size of Colorado Springs, where she lives now with her Army husband and two daughters. She met her husband in Germany, where she had traveled for a yearlong exchange program while in college. She wanted to learn German, so she sold her car and just about everything she owned to finance the trip. Friends took her to an Oktoberfest, and while she was dancing, Timothy Hines, stationed at a nearby Army base, began talking to her in English. “I asked him why he was talking to me in English — we are in Germany,” Monse remembers, with a smile. Three months later, they flew home to his family in Texas and married on Thanksgiving Day. They celebrate their 10th anniversary this year. It was in 2011 — Tim was deployed for a year in Afghanistan — that Monse’s dream emerged. Her sister took her to a Whole Foods. She recalls the wonder. “Everything was so pretty,” she says. “There, my vision started — a healthy product in this supermarket.” After deciding that her pupusas and curtido would be gluten-free and use only organic and non-genetically modified in-

gredients, she began researching on the Internet: How to get a license to sell a food product. How to make a label. How to package according to health department regulations. Who had the best prices. Everything had to be bought in small quantities because there was little money to invest — she and Tim had decided they would not take out loans. Each month, Monse would decide how much she could afford to spend. Maybe $100 one month. She needed a Web page? Maybe $10 more another month for that. Neighbors and family helped her navigate the English language and fill out paperwork. Her mother-in-law designed her label. “We all have these angels who help us,” Monse says. Then she won an audience at a Whole Foods in Colorado Springs. And, in June 2012, her curtido, under the name Monse’s Taste of El Salvador, first appeared on the store’s shelves. The pupusas followed two months later. “No sé como explicarlo,” she says. I don’t know how to explain it. “To know that a company so big wants your products — it’s like being in a dreamland.” Tim got home in time to make the first delivery. He was thrilled. “She decided `I’m going to do this’ and she did,” he says. “I was proud to come home and share this thing that was hers.” He describes how, for Monse, food from her country was a way to introduce herself to families in the places they lived. “She would make something from El Salvador and nobody else would have it and it was something she could share.” As a business, it does the same, opening a door between cultures. The niche “is hers and she can claim it — `This is how my mom and my grandma made it and I’ll use your ingredients to make something from my home,’” Tim says. “I think it’s really cool.” These days, Monse has one employee to help her make about 7,000 pupusas a week. They work from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. out of a

commercial kitchen space that is shared with five other entrepreneurs. “We divide the cost so we can all survive,” Monse says. And she buys her produce from Pueblo and Colorado Springs farmers, so that the circle of local enterprise is complete. Her products can be found in Whole Foods in Colorado Springs, Highlands Ranch, Southglenn and Belmar, and soon in a Natural Grocers in Colorado Springs. The University of Colorado in Boulder buys about 4,000 pupusas a week to sell in its cafeterias. “I can’t believe that this has happened to me,” Monse says. “I am grateful to God and to the support from this country. As a woman, too, I feel as if I’ve been able to better myself, that there are no barriers.” The Army has relocated Tim to Oklahoma for three years, starting in mid-July. But they have decided Monse and the girls will remain here. They will travel back and forth to see each other. The business, they hope, will be their work after Tim retires. “We have to make the sacrifice,” Monse says. “Si Dios quiere” — if God wills it, “the business can give us a better future for our daughters.” A customer approaches Monse’s stand at a recent farmers’ market in Highlands Ranch. “Can I try one?” the woman asks. “Which one is this?” “Black bean,” Monse says, as she slices the pupusa that has been heating on the pan and tops it with a spoonful of curtido. “Excellent,” the woman says, after a bite. “You’re here every week?” One more sale. One more convert. One more step toward a future built on a taste of the past. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

Suspects arrested in Foothills Park graffiti ‘Hateful and offensive’ language reported By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia @coloradocommunitymedia.com The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two suspects who allegedly wrote obscene graffiti on playground equipment, sidewalks, signs and park trails at Foothills Park in Highlands Ranch. Jordan Rockwell and Andrew Whattam, both 18, were arrested May 20 and booked into the Douglas County jail on charges of criminal mischief. Bond was set at $6,000 for both teens and Whattam has since bonded out. The park was closed down on May 19, following the incident, which investigators believe happened sometime the night before. Sherry Eppers, a spokeswoman with the Highlands Ranch Metro District, called the language “hateful and offensive” and said the graffiti included swastikas and male genitalia “as well as hate language against multiple groups including

Christians, Jews, ThunderRidge, the police.” The perpetrators were not short on profanities either, according to Eppers. Total cleaning and repair costs totaled around $5,000, she said. “It was offensive to everyone,” said Sgt. Ron Hanavan, Douglas County sheriff’s spokesman. The park reopened May 20 after metro district crews worked to clean off the marred surfaces, which included the basketball court and restrooms. “Crews were out first thing,” Eppers said. “One of the things we work hard to do is remove the graffiti quickly and that takes away some of the gratification (of the perpetrators). We don’t want to give them any satisfaction.” “That neighborhood was not appreciative … and rightfully so,” Hanavan said. There have been other graffiti incidents around Highlands Ranch, including in a pedestrian tunnel that passes under the 9800 block of Quebec Street on May 3, at a home in Jaguar Point where someone painted “conformity is best” on a fence on April 30 and an Andee Way home with graffiti on a fence

that said “Public Schools Are For Un - Pr i v i l e g e d POOR People.” Hanavan said investigators have no way of knowing if the incidents are Rockwell related, but called the graffiti at Foothills Park “different.” “We have a couple graffiti cases every couple of weeks,” he said. “It’s different than Whattam your typical kind of graffiti. Aside from the racial tone, it was spread over a large area. Typically folks will go hit the side of a building or a bridge, not an extended area and over multiple surfaces in a spree of tagging. This one is a little different.” A major factor resulting in information that led to the arrests, Hanavan said, was the relationship between the Douglas County School District and the ThunderRidge school resource officer, as well as the sheriff’s patrol division. He said both teenagers are believed to be former ThunderRidge students.

“Serving up Strategy: Learn Supply Chain through the Beer Game.” WhippleWood CPAs Conference Center at the Chamber 2154 E. Commons Ave., Suite 342, Centennial, CO

Friday, May 30: On May 13, almost 100 businesspeople attended a Business After Hours at the Project C.U.R.E. (Commission on Urgent Relief and Equipment) headquarters in Centennial, CO. This event featured three guided tours of the facility by the organization’s CEO and directors of government affairs and operations. The tours gave participants insight into the overall vision of the organization, while providing a closer look into the facility’s operations. “I enjoyed attending the networking event hosted by Project C.U.R.E. and the South Metro Chamber. It’s an incredible feeling to be inside a warehouse full of items we would typically throw in the garbage, but instead, these items are saving lives and healing people. They may not be in our community, but kindness knows no boundaries, thanks to Project C.U.R.E.,” said attendee Angel Tuccy, co-host of the Experience Pros Radio Show on AM 560 KLZ.

Project C.U.R.E.’s mission is to identify, solicit, collect, sort, and distribute medical supplies and services according to the imperative needs of the world. Volcano Asian Cuisine, a sushi and hibachi restaurant in Centennial, provided delicious appetizers for the group. “We were honored to be chosen to host the Chamber’s Business After Hours and share the mission and vision of Project C.U.R.E. with business leaders of South Metro,” said Jan Mazotti, director of communications, marketing and PR. Dr. Douglas Jackson, the organization’s president/CEO, spoke to the group, outlining the great impact the organization has around the world. Each week they deliver approximately three semi-truck loads of donated medical supplies and equipment to desperately needy people around the world. Since 1987, they have delivered equipment and supplies to hospitals and clinics in over 130 countries.

Project C.U.R.E. is consistently recognized with the highest Four Star ranking from Charity Navigator, and was named by Forbes as one of the top 200 charities in America. “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Project C.U.R.E., bringing together our business leaders with a national leader in philanthropy,” said Marcia McGilley, interim CEO of the South Metro Denver Chamber. A team of South Metro Denver Chamber members continues to volunteer monthly at Project C.U.R.E.’s warehouse, sorting medical supplies for export.

May 29, 2014

opinions / yours and ours

Wildfire reports sound a call to action With the recent rain and hail that pounded much of the Front Range, bringing flooding to some areas, wildfires may not seem like an imminent threat. But trends tell us otherwise. It’s not a matter of if, but when. Earlier this spring, the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control released some chilling information in a special report to the governor and General Assembly. The report focused on strategies to enhance the state’s aerial firefighting capabilities. In making its case for that, the report stated that since the 1990s, “the number, intensity, and complexity of wildfires in Colorado have been growing exponentially, and experts predict that it will continue to worsen.” The length of the wildfire season is growing, too, the report said.

our view “In general, Colorado sees short periods of increased fire occurrence throughout the year with just a few of the fires reaching a significant size or complexity. However, the drought conditions and fire activity experienced throughout 2012 — one of the worst wildfire seasons in state history — may be representative of a new normal. Experts warn that drought and the other causal factors could result in repeats of 2012 with widespread fire activity and extended, year-long wildfire seasons.” In recent months, several reports have

blamed wildfire trends like this across the West on global warming, perhaps further evidence of a “new normal.” Given the bigger picture, it’s difficult for us to find solace in the mid-May prediction by state experts of a “normal” 2014 wildfire season. Even a pre-2012 “normal” means an average year in Colorado would see thousands of fires, with 30 of them being large, destructive blazes. But if 2012 — when 260,000 acres in the state were scorched, more than 600 structures destroyed and six people killed — is a sign of things to come, that’s truly alarming. To their credit, state legislators and Gov. John Hickenlooper took action this past session. On May 12, Hickenlooper signed into law a bill creating the state’s first aerial firefighting fleet. The legislation, which comes with a $21 million price tag,

creates a fleet of four planes — two leased and two owned by the state — and four leased helicopters and designates money for a center to study high-tech firefighting tactics. The primary goal, as outlined in the division of fire prevention’s report, is to keep fires small. If the fleet can help cut down on an average year’s $42 million in fire-suppression-expenses, while saving lives, acres and property, it will be money well spent. One thing is for certain when it comes to wildfires in Colorado: Inaction is not an option. With the ominous reports that have surfaced, lawmakers here and in other Western states would be wise to read and react for years to come.

Newest may not be the greatest

Movies shouldn’t feel like being assaulted “Badges? We ain’t got no badges. I don’t have to show you any stinking badges.” Name it and claim it. Alfonso Badoya. He was “Gold Hat” in a great film. Answer at the end. I make frequent references to films in my columns. I was almost a theater arts major, and if I had been I would have been on track to be a director. My school’s theater arts program has graduated some well-known directors and actors and actresses and others associated with the industry. Ultimately, I wanted to make individual pictures, not reels of them. There was another roadblock: people. Have you ever watched the credits? It takes 10 minutes. Hundreds of people are involved. I am not good with or around people. I no longer go to theaters. I watch films here at home. Very few of them are recent. I don’t like gun work. The f-word is used as if it is a throwaway. A gimme. Five hundred and six times in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Come on. Aren’t there other words? For anger, anxiety, disapproval, description? It’s funny how we seem to seek the action, and give it a bad connotation. I watch documentaries. I watch films that aren’t blockbusters. Blockbusters are for someone else. I love cinema too much to watch a blockbuster. Action films are not welcome. I read the newspaper, I don’t need to pay to see the kind of crap that people do to people. Give me a Benjamin, free tickets to a Quentin Tarantino? No thanks. I didn’t see a single film that was nominated for an Academy Award. A good pal is married to a Disney executive, and he has home access to all of the nominated films every year. She said, “You missed out on some good movies last year.” I am sure I did. I just don’t want to watch people killing each other. But you do. “Captain America Something” is No. 1 right now. I guess some people go to movies to disconnect from the real world. But this garbage

is the real world. How can someone read about Claire Davis and still go to Tarantino? Cry all you want and light all of the candles you want to light. Subscribe to “Memorial Stuffed Animals.” And then pay to see someone be killed. We escape in the film. From what? The things we escape from are right there in the movies you pay to see. Something is wrong (with you). If you don’t want to be scolded, read someone else. Tarantino is a complete idiot. Tarantino is a complete genius, because he knows his audience is Jerry-Jerry-Jerry morons. I get angry. Don’t I? Why would anyone go to see “The Dark Knight Rises” in the first place? At midnight. With your children. You are what you eat, and if you eat the kind of movies that you are fed, you must not cry. It’s called duplicity. Do you care about the Nigerian schoolgirls? Women on buses in India? Have you done your reading about Chicago lately? And then you and the girl go to see “Captain America.” I am probably alienating some of my audience. Good. It’s not dachshunds and Jennifer every week. Try. Try watching something good. “Amelie.” Cocteau’s “Beauty and the Beast.” “Bully.” “Five Easy Pieces.” I know it’s hopeless. You look forward to the Super Bowl halftime, and think it’s worthwhile. It is the opposite. “Treasure of the Sierra Madre.” Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

With so much content and so many authors and experts who write about the trends in the field of personal and professional development, sales training, leadership and customer service, I am often asked by customers for the latest and greatest material in these areas. They are looking for that something new or a silver bullet, some magic dust or cure-all pill to fix their problems, their people, or in some cases, themselves. Now don’t get me wrong, I am a huge advocate of growth and I am all for continuing education whether that comes in the form of reading, listening, watching, participating in seminars, or cloud learning through socialization of ideas, or any other medium, for that matter, that takes us and/or our teams to a higher level. Any attempt at upping our game in anything we do or endeavor to do is to be applauded. And when I am asked for specific advice or recommendation for a good book or program to attend, I love to share thoughts and ideas as well as happily recommend something provocative that I have recently read or participated in. But my favorite thing to do is remind people that it is not necessarily “what’s new” that works … it’s really all about “what works” that works. Sometimes the latest and greatest writings or advice is adopted quickly as a trend or fad, but soon meld into some remnant of a concept or philosophy that was written and practiced long ago. I still

enjoy these programs and materials because maybe they put a new spin or twist on an old theory and I get to experience it in a new and different way. Many of the books I have read are dogeared and highlighted in different colors and tabbed with different color sticky notes as I have gone back to the same books many times over. It’s like watching your favorite movie for the 10th time and hearing a line or seeing a scene that you previously missed. When Hall of Fame baseball player Ted William finished the 1941 baseball season with a .400 batting average, was he using today’s technology to achieve his results? When golfing greats Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer or Byron Nelson recorded golf scores in the low 60s they surely weren’t using the clubs, grips, balls, and swing technology we use now. As a matter of fact, I would bet that any of today’s baseball players such as Troy Norton continues on Page 7

Data center to be built in county $20 million project gets tax break, fee waivers Staff report With preparations nearly complete, an Arizona-based IT firm is preparing to break ground on a 35,000-square-foot data center in unincorporated Douglas County. OneNeck IT Solutions announced plans for a new $20 million, Tier 3+ data center on May 20. The data center will be built on 11.2 acres of land on Concord Center Drive, located south of Centennial Airport in the northern part of the county. Once open, in early 2015, it will be the seventh data center owned and operated by OneNeck in the U.S. “We are excited to make this additional investment in the Denver area,” said Phil LaForge, OneNeck president and CEO. “Our data center will be built to withstand natural disasters, which means area businesses can rest assured their IT infrastructure is safe, protected, and always accessible in our new Tier 3+ data center.” The multi-phase project is designed for rapid expansion, in up to five phases, totaling 160,000 square feet. It will also be able to support data center modules. The project leverages a personal property tax rebate and construction fee waivers provided by the Douglas County commissioners.

An artist’s rendering of the new data center OneNeck IT Solutions has plans to build in Douglas County. Courtesy graphic “In an effort to continue strategically supporting investing in projects that provide a strong economic foundation for Douglas County, we are proud to support OneNeck in this endeavor,” Commissioner Jill Repella said. About 30 local companies will be involved in the construction of the build-

ing. Denver-area contractor JE Dunn Construction will coordinate the project with support from INVISION Architecture, Faith Technologies and North American Mechanical. “We believe in providing an environment where businesses can succeed. For this reason, it is a pleasure to team up

with OneNeck on their data center build, a project that will certainly add to our community’s economic growth,” Repella said. When the doors open in 2015, the data center will resemble other OneNeck data centers in the Midwest. This facility will support common compliance requirements and will also include many state-ofthe-industry features, such as: three-factor security authentication, including iris scanners for personnel identification; up to 16-inch-thick steel-reinforced concrete walls, roof and floors; VESDA fire detection system; Tier 4 electrical system with multiple levels of redundancy and backup; and an energy-saving cooling design. The facility will also deploy ReliaCloud to provide businesses with local cloud storage, LaForge said. “We appreciate the county board’s support and trust in us,” LaForge added. “We look forward to maximizing this opportunity and, ultimately, to making it an economic success for the county, area businesses and OneNeck.” The announcement follows the October 2013 news that MSN Communications, based in Arapahoe County’s Inverness area, was being acquired by Telephone and Data Systems. The acquisition and then unification as part of the OneNeck IT Solutions master brand adds to the company’s strategic direction, which includes building its Tier 3 data center portfolio and delivering tailored end-to-end IT solutions.

Costs of teacher tool presented, questioned District claims savings, but parents not so sure By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com School district leaders said they saved money and created a better system by opting to build a Douglas County-specific teaching tool instead of buying such software from an outside vendor. But community members are challenging the figures the Douglas County School District says it so far has spent on the system, with some asserting the numbers don’t reflect the total investment. InspirED Innovation is described by DCSD as web-based software to help educators build teaching units, evaluate and document their progress, and get feedback from evaluators — much of which is required under Colorado’s Educator Effectiveness Bill, or Senate Bill 191. Using InspirED, “From a single tool they can define the outcomes they hope to achieve in class, design assessments to measure those outcomes, and coordinate the learning activities needed to reach their objectives,” according to the DCSD website. Though it can be used in conjunction with the district’s teacher evaluations — for instance, teachers can use their InspirED work to show they’re effective at their jobs — InspirED is not the same as that program. The Douglas County teachers’ union recently requested a state review of the district’s evaluation system, questioning its fairness and reliability. During a May 6 presentation to the school board, a school district leader said the estimated 10-year cost for procurement of an outside vendor assessment system was about $8 million. DCSD’s cost to develop its own system stands at about $3 million,

Tulowitzki or Derek Jeter, and golfers such as Bubba Watson or Tiger Woods, would have been equally as good if they played with the same equipment and competed in the same era as the above-mentioned greats. I say this with confidence because it really isn’t about the equipment, it’s about the player, the talent, the work ethic, and the practice. With a focused approach on effort, practice, and the fundamentals we can all excel in anything we strive for in our personal life, our business, or in our recreational

including $1 million for an infrastructure upgrade that will benefit all DCSD departments and isn’t exclusive to InspirED, according to staff. Several parents, who have peppered DCSD with open-records requests, don’t believe the reports from DCSD have provided a full accounting of the costs. Julie Keim, who ran for the school board in 2013 and led a complaint against it for violating the Colorado Fair Campaign Practices Act, said her research shows the actual cost is as high as $11.9 million. “I find it interesting that we can talk about a system on one night and come up with four different numbers for how much we’ve spent on it already,” she said. “We haven’t even talked about what we’re going to spend on it in the future.” Superintendent Elizabeth Fagen said Keim’s total was not correct, but said she would be happy to review the numbers. “We have shared tonight the real cost,” she said. Board member Craig Richardson agreed. “I have no confidence in the objectivity or integrity of these numbers, and I give them the weight they deserve,” he said of Keim’s documentation. Parent Patti Anderson expressed concern about future expenditures related to InspirED. Based on costs to date, she said: “The cost is going to be $25 million if we continue to spend over the next 10 years. I’m just not quite making the tie on how that’s fiscally responsible.” Fagen pointed out that costs for developing a system aren’t the same as buying one. “Most projects are pretty straightforward because you purchase a service or product,” she said. “But when you’re building something internally that changes as it goes to meet the needs of those using it, it’s a more challenging endeavor.” She also said the programs already avail-

activities. So even with all the technology and gadgetry available to us, it really isn’t about “what’s new” that works, it is about finding “what works” that works. How about you, do you focus on effort and practice, or do you look for the newest or latest and greatest equipment to up your game? Either way I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com. And I do believe that when our efforts and practice outpace our search for the next new thing, it really will be a better than good week.

able for purchase wouldn’t have met DCSD’s needs. In creating their presentation for the May 6 meeting, DCSD “worked hard to figure out an apples-to-apples comparison,” she said. “We actually were unable to find systems that did the things we wanted them to do. They had components we didn’t need or want and were missing major components we absolutely needed.”

A teacher and principal at the meeting gave InspirED positive reviews. “I was initially a little skeptical,” said Cimarron Middle School math teacher Ben D’Ardenne. “But I was really impressed. It took me about eight hours. To me, that was sufficient and I got the rating I felt I wanted to get or needed to get. It all comes down to: You’ve got to have an open dialogue with your evaluator.”

Marijuana law aims to protect kids Separate measure deals with edible concentrates By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A Highlands Ranch legislator hopes that a new marijuana law will help keep the drug out of the hands of children. Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 21 signed into law a bill that aims to distinguish cannabis-infused edibles like candy and cookies from other foods so that kids don’t accidentally consume the drug. Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, a bill sponsor, said that by requiring edibles to be packaged in a way that makes them easy to identify as containing marijuana, fewer children would end up having to be hospitalized for accidental ingestion.

“It certainly gives parents and teachers and school resource officers the tool that they need to identify these things and keep them out of kids’ hands,” McNulty said. The bill was signed at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora, where nine chilMcNulty dren have been treated for marijuana ingestion so far this year. The bill creates a task force that will determine the rules to make marijuana edibles clearly identifiable. That includes what kinds of markings are on the packaging or on the edibles themselves. The bill is a change from its original form, which sought to prohibit companies from “selling things that look like kid snacks, lacing them with THC and turning around and selling them to adults,” McNulty said. However, that effort had to be pulled back after it ran

‘I think the end product moves us to a direction of keeping kids safe.’ — Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch into problems during the legislative process. “I would have liked to have gone further, but we had to work within the process we had,” McNulty said. “And I think the end product moves us to a direction of keeping kids safe.” Hickenlooper also signed into law a separate bill that regulates the amount of concentrated marijuana that a person can possess. Under Amendment 64, which was approved by voters in 2012, adults are allowed to possess up to an ounce of marijuana, regardless of whether it is in plant “bud” form or in concentrated form, such as hash oil.

But concentrated pot can contain many more servings than in plant form. The new law addresses that by requiring the state to determine how much concentrated pot is equal to an ounce of leafy marijuana. Both bills received bipartisan sponsorship and support at the General Assembly. Christian Sederberg, a marijuana attorney, said the Legislature did a good job this year. “At the end of the session, there were a number of responsible bills that add to the regulatory structure and provide opportunities for the program to continue to improve,” he said.

School funding measures signed into law Hundreds of millions of dollars to fund programs, construction By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com In front of a group of school children who are just starting to grasp basic arithmetic, Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 21 signed into law a pair of complex, multimillion dollar school finance measures. The new laws will allow a state school finance system that was significantly strained by recession-era budget cuts to grow by nearly $500 million. The cash infusion will fund several areas of K-12 resources, including school construction and preschool, kindergarten and English language learner programs. “We’re trying to make sure that each one of you guys gets every single advantage, every single chance, because your success is the fu-

ture of this state,” Hickenlooper said during a bill signing that was held inside Aurora’s Ponderosa Elementary School. A major K-12 funding piece comes from the Student Success Act. The legislation provides $20 million for programs that target children who are struggling to read and $53 million for school construction, with $40 million of that going toward construction in rural areas — the latter funding coming from Amendment 64-backed marijuana revenue. An additional $3 million will go toward financial transparency efforts that are aimed at allowing taxpayers to see how the new money is being reported and spent. The funding includes a $110 million buy down of the so-called “negative factor” — recession-era funding cuts that slashed about $1 billion from the state’s K-12 budget. The governor also signed into law the annual school finance act, which includes $27 million for English language learner pro-

No Republican lawmakers were present for the signing ceremony. However, the Student Success Act was co-sponsored by Rep. Carole Murray, R-Castle Rock, and both bills received bipartisan support at the Capitol. Republicans who expressed concerns about the funding measures during the legislative process argued that the efforts do not go far enough in replacing “negative factor” dollars. GOP lawmakers also wanted school districts to have more control over how the money is spent, without state strings attached. But Democratic lawmakers who attended the bill signing told students that they’re going to be in a better position to succeed because of the new funding. “People worked really hard to cause us to fund education at a higher level; to be able to restore some of the money that was missing; to be able to cause you to have a better opportunity to be successful,” said Rep. John Buckner, D-Aurora.

grams and funds an additional 5,000 seats in preschool and kindergarten classrooms. “This bill that the governor is about to sign will authorize 5,000 more kids next year going to publicly-funded, quality preschool programs than what was possible the year before,” said Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver, a bill sponsor. Additionally, per-pupil funding for next school year will jump to $7,021, a 5 percent increase. “That’s almost $400 for every one of you students,” Sen. Mike Johnston, D-Denver, told the children in the audience. “So imagine if you came through the doors this morning and we handed $400 to each one of you. It would be pretty good stuff.” The funding efforts that the Legislature passed this year were a response to last year’s failed Amendment 66 ballot measure, which sought to bolster school funding through tax increases.

Class speaker Hannah Lamieux pulls out a sign during her speech at Highlands Ranch High School’s graduation.

BRIGHT EYES, OPEN SKIES

With hugs and handshakes aplenty, Highlands Ranch High School principal Jerry Goings ushered his 396 graduating Falcons across the Red Rocks Amphitheatre stage on May 21 after performances from orchestra and choir students. The tone of the ceremony was wistful as speakers reminisced fondly and seniors sang the class song “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons,

with a lyric of “I don’t ever want to let you down, I don’t ever want to leave this town.” Class speaker Hannah Lemieux, while holding up a sign, got to the heart of the matter during her speech: “Class of 2014, you are so loved.”

Research Continued from Page 1

Upon hearing that the FBI could look at her research, Knapke said that she “sat there in shock.” “It’s been a long journey, but it’s been pretty amazing,” Knapke said. “It was stressful at first, but knowing that I may change the way law enforcement investigates crimes is surreal.” As part of her research, Knapke visited the FBI office in Denver, where she became enamored with the idea of a career in forensics. Denver-based FBI spokesman Dave Joly said he plans to send her research to the main FBI lab in Quantico, Va., saying it was “something to consider.” “We really appreciate her hard work. This was a big deal and we’re happy to help,” Joly said.

Although FBI special agent Dan Leyman, a senior team leader for the FBI’s evidence response team in Denver, isn’t sure whether the research will result in any change in storage protocol, he was impressed by the teen’s inventiveness. “I think it was a really good experiement, especially for someone her age, and I don’t want to kill that drive and that curiosity,” Leyman said. “The luminol is going to work regardless but we may just have to use multiple applications.” Knapke said she would like to pursue studies in forensic anthropology and possibly toxicology or ballistics. She was invited to take an introductory criminology class at Sam Houston State University in Texas this summer. “After the (FBI office) tour, I just kept thinking `I want to do this’” Knapke said. “These guys are helping save other people and that’s what I want to do.” “I’d love to see her apply for the FBI in the future. That’s kind of the mindset we’re looking for,” Joly said.

Cherokee event honors founder Gatsby-style attire suggested for night of live jazz at castle

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@colorado communitymedia.com Mildred Montague Genevieve “Tweet” Kimball (1914-1999) was Douglas County’s larger-than-life matriarch and patron for many years. A legendary hostess, international traveler and award-winning cattlewoman, she left a unique legacy for those who come after her. In 1996, she developed the Cherokee Ranch and Castle Foundation and donated the land surrounding the castle, protecting and preserving a unique scenic and historic area for the future. On June 14, the foundation will celebrate her memory from 6-10:30 p.m. with a Gatsby-style party at the castle, and the community is invited. There will be champagne, hors d’oeuvres, live music for dancing by the Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra, a silent auction and performances by acrobats and aerialists. Gatsby attire is suggested. “She had friends all over the world

Reservations are required: Guest Level tickets: $60 and VIP tickets: $100. (The latter include a Castle tour, champagne and a toast with Tweet’s favorite Scotch.) Cherokee Castle is at 6113 N. Daniels Park Road, Sedalia. Call 303-688-4600 to RSVP. For more information, see cherokeeranch.org. and her home was always open to them,” said Meg Anderson in the dedication of her charming cookbook, “Castle Entertaining from Ranch Hands to Royalty,” which she and her husband, John Lake, wrote. “She was active in many organizations and was generous in raising money for all of them. Her parties were exciting, fun, beautiful.” Anderson was caterer for Kimball for many years and Lake donned a butler’s coat when guests were expected. The book includes memories, photos and recipes, with tales of Tweet, who became a close friend — and of visitors, including Britain’s Princess Anne. Longtime Douglas County resident/ author Angela Overy contributed a forward to the book with a biography, from which we draw: Kimball grew up as a

Tennessee belle, the educated daughter of a wealthy family who exposed her to art, literature, travel and a sense of business. Her father nicknamed her “Tweet” and it stayed with her. She married another Southern plantation offspring, lived in Britain with him for a period, adopted two sons and eventually divorced. They agreed that she would live in the West and he in the East, so she returned to Colorado, where she had vacationed, and purchased her castle on a hill, eventually building a herd of prize-winning Santa Gertrudis cattle. The Scottish-style castle is sited high on 3,400 pristine acres near Sedalia, 30 minutes south of Denver. Elk and wild turkeys live on the land, as do numerous varieties of birds and other creatures. A few of the Santa Gertrudis cattle remain for educational purposes. Through the foundation, the castle and ranch serve many roles: The venue is a museum, filled with fine art, furnishings and memorabilia from around the world. It is a cultural center with ongoing concerts, whiskey tastings, theater, lectures, mystery suppers and a series of outdoor programs. It also hosts private weddings and meetings.

Colorado butterflies come to Chatfield New seasonal habitat open through October By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com Many area families have delighted in the experience of visiting the Butterfly Pavilion in Westminster and having a lovely creature light on them. South-metro families can make a shorter trip this summer, as Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield and the Butterfly Pavilion have collaborated on a new seasonal habitat called Butterflies at Chatfield. The habitat is open now and will continue through early October. It features, in a large tent, hundreds of native Colorado butterflies such as two-tailed swallowtail, monarch, silverspotted skipper and painted

if you go Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield is located at 8500 W. Deer Creek Canyon Road, just a short drive south of the intersection of C-470 and South Wadsworth Boulevard. The butterfly exhibit will run until early October, open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily — last entry is 4 p.m. A $5 parking fee per vehicle does not include the separate admission ticket required to enter the butterfly house, which costs $6/adult, $5 senior, $4 child, free 2 and under. Botanicgardens.org. lady. Species will vary from day to day, with 100 new chrysalides (butterfly pupae in cocoons) arriving each week. Visitors can see them emerging in a custom chrysalis chamber. More than 50 indigenous plant species will be planted in a special garden to provide a habitat for these blossoms on

Silver Spotted Skippers will be among the Colorado native butterflies at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield. Courtesy photo the wing. The Butterfly Pavilion describes itself as “a zoo of small wonders.” Invertebrates make up 97 percent of the animal species on our planet and they play a major role in ensuring

the health of our environment. While families are visiting the 750-acre Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield, they will want to see the historic farm and explore some of the many hiking paths that illustrate different ecological systems. Birds are plentiful, and there is an old one-room schoolhouse that once served students living nearby. And one finds seasonally changing native plant life of all kinds and assorted native critters. Originally called Chatfield Arboretum, this wonderful asset was set aside as floodplain by the Army Corps of Engineers after the 1965 flood — meaning it could not be developed. In combination with Chatfield State Park, local residents have access to acres of natural areas close enough to pop in for a few hours’ visit and perhaps a picnic.

In celebration of its 35th anniversary, Swallow Hill Music in south Denver is delivering more music to more people in more places. And its latest effort to expand its music community comes with wheels. A donor recently gave Swallow Hill Music a 1976 Silver Streak motor home, to be turned into a mobile music community. But, the ol’ girl needs a little TLC. A crowd-funding campaign with a goal of raising $10,000 launches today to help the Swallow Hill Music mobile home hit the road. Contributions made over the next few weeks will get the Silver Steak running smoothly, add signage and give her an overall buff and shine. Once she’s up and running, she’ll turn into a mobile music community, providing Instrument Petting Zoos, impromptu performances and musical experiences throughout Denver. Taking Swallow Hill Music on the road will boost Denver’s access to music education by transporting instruments and musical experiences throughout the metro area, meeting people where they live and enriching their lives through music.

Fly-fishing book gets you hooked Latest from Colorado writer could be gift By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com “At the desk it’s all about the luscious sense, sound and possibilities of language. On the water it’s all about the fish and the beautiful places they live. The only real difficulties you encounter are in getting from one place to the other.” — John Gierach Gierach, who lives in the Colorado town of Lyons, with good trout streams nearby, has developed a career many would envy: When he goes fishing, he’s doing his job. The above paragraph is contained in the opening chapter, “A Day at the Office,” in his latest — 17th —

book, published in April: “All Fishermen are Liars.” For a reader whose outdoor excursions ran more to hiking, herding kids and identifying birds, butterflies and wildflowers, some of Gierach’s highly specialized descriptions of gear and technique seemed to almost be written in a foreign language, but his flowing words are an absolute joy. I can only guess at how much a dedicated fisherman would love comparing experiences as he or she leafs through this smallish volume. Gierach travels across the U.S. coast to coast and north into Canada, Alaska, Labrador. He may fly into a fishing camp or drive in on white-knuckle roads. Once arrived, he spends hours in waders standing patiently and waiting for a brief encounter with trout, steelhead, salmon or occasionally other varieties of fish —

but especially trout. He then goes home and recalls his adventures in lucid, descriptive prose that borders on poetry at times, with short flashes of humor that have been compared to the great Mark Twain. Encounters with assorted folks of the same ilk — most gracious and some testy — are recounted with the same spare, precise language as are accounts of days by beautiful streams, lakes and woods — or days spent in icy rain and fog. He does address the possibility that one may not really want to reveal the whereabouts of a truly splendid fishing spot, citing a quote from novelist Tom McGuane: “Whenever you feel like falling silent, do it.” The first chapter concludes: “(S)till, even on those rare days when you trudge off to a trout stream not so much because you want to, but because your livelihood

Author John Gierach writes about fly fishing across the country and in Canada. Courtesy photo depends on it, you have a better day at the office than most.” “All Fishermen are Liars” is published by Simon and Schuster at $24. It might be a great Father’s Day gift in some families.

Reading for scholarships

Wind Crest’s Reader’s Theater’s presentation of A.R. Gurney’s “Ancestral Voices” raised $285 for Wind Crest retirement community’s Student Scholarship Fund on May 19. “Ancestral Voices,” a family story, was produced through special arrangement with Broadway Play Publishing Inc. This performance culminated months of rehearsals by men and women who — with the exception of director Jack Liggett — never thought they would become actors when they moved to Wind Crest. The actors are former teachers, government procurement officers and registered nurses. Liggett, a former human resources manager for Phillips Petroleum Company, acted for 40 years in community theaters, primarily in Oklahoma. The Reader’s Theater performs plays year-round. Each involves a five-week cycle of rehearsals by a troupe of 20 thespans.

Rock Canyon’s Romano grabs state title Jaguar wins one-hole playoff against Arapahoe’s Wood By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com Michelle Romano regained her temperament just in time to win the Class 5A individual championship in a playoff at the Class 5A Girls State Golf Tournament. Romano, a senior at Rock Canyon, was uncharacteristically flustered and bogeyed the final three holes May 20 at Raccoon Creek Golf Club in Littleton. Yet Romano still managed to card a 3-overpar 75 to finish in a first-place tie with Arapahoe’s Hannah Wood who birdied the 18th hole to pull even with her own second-day 75. Columbine’s Jaylee Tait, playing in the final group, needed a par to walk off with medalist honors but instead 3-putted the 18th for a double bogey, dropping her into a three-player tie for third place. Romano calmed down and took advantage of her second chance in the playoff, beating Wood, the University of Oklahoma-bound senior. Both players hit their second shots onto the green on the par-4 first hole. Wood left her 25-foot birdie putt four feet short on her third shot, while Romano, from 15 feet away, rolled her putt to within two feet of the cup. Wood’s par putt, however, lipped out. And Romano tapped in hers to claim the state individual championship. “In the playoff I was trying hard to stay in character as Michelle the champion,” said Romano. “I was trying my hardest to stay composed and stay in character and not let the people following me af-

fect me. “I just tried to play my game and however it panned out — whether it was good or not — that’s all you can do. “I stuck the first putt a little bit closer. I just wanted to make sure I didn’t blow it way by. That last putt I was shaking. I was nervous. “I was never so nervous in my life to make a two-footer. It was a very good feeling when that went in.” Romano, whose brother Andrew played at Rock Canyon and was the 2012 Colorado Golf Association Junior Match Play Champion, got some advice from 2012 Douglas County state champion Kyler Dunkle while walking to the first tee for the playoff. “I called him right after I won regionals and he said that he won regionals and then state the same year,” recalled Romano who was the medalist in the Northern regional April 28 with an even-par 71 at Highland Meadows in Windsor. “He said he had a good feeling about this. He definitely told me that in the playoffs to just relax, go have fun and be grateful for what I have accomplished whether I win or not. “That was kind of the last straw to make me realize whatever happens, happens.” Wood said she didn’t figure how slow the greens would be in the playoff because of an 80-minute weather delay that halted play late in the final round. “I just considered the greens to be fast but I guess they kind of slowed down,” said Wood when asked about her short birdie putt. “It’s disappointing. I knew the hail had some effects on the green. “More than anything the delay affected the emotion side of things.” In addition to Romano and Wood, who tied with a 9-over par 153, two-round total, three other south metro golfers

Rock Canyon senior Michelle Romano won the Class 5A state golf tournament May 19-20 in Littleton. Photos by Jim Benton played their way into the top 10. Legend junior soccer player Anna Kennedy showed her prowess on the golf course with the tournament’s best final round, a two-over-par 74, and tied for third at 154. Defending state champion Callie Ringsby of Cherry Creek tied for seventh at 157 and Samantha Barker of Highlands Ranch was ninth at 160. Regis Jesuit won the team title with 486 points while runner-up Rock Canyon finished three strokes behind. Also in the top 10, Arapahoe was third, Cherry Creek fifth, Heritage seventh and Legend 10th. In the Class 4A tournament at the Country Club of Colorado, Valor Christian’s Andrea Ballou was the runnerup after rounds of 81 and 79 left her 14 strokes behind runaway winner Jennifer Kupcho of Jefferson Academy.

Highlands Ranch’s Samantha Barker finished ninth in the Class 5A state golf tournament at Raccoon Creek.

Grand slam sends Golden Eagles home Mountain Vista falls to Regis in baseball playoffs By Tom Munds

tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia.com A swing of the bat ended the season for Mountain Vista as Regis won the Class 5A state final four baseball game 5-1 after a grand slam homer. “It was a tough game against a very good baseball team,” Golden Eagles coach Ron Quintana said after the game. “A game like this against excellent pitching means you need timely hits to score runs. They got those hits and we didn’t.” Mountain Vista finished the year 20-5.

Two of the team’s wins came in the state regional playoffs to advance to the doubleelimination, eight-team state tournament. The Golden Eagles beat Chaparral and Chatfield to get to the final four. They lost to Rocky Mountain, which put them in the May 23 elimination game against oncebeaten Regis. The Regis-Mountain Vista game was a pitcher’s duel for six and a half innings. Golden Eagles pitcher Nick Leonard gave up a first-inning run then, with the help of the defense, kept the Raiders scoreless for the next five innings. David Peterson took the mound for Regis. He gave up four hits and fanned 10 as he got the win. He also got strong backing from his defense. In particular, sophomore

right fielder Quin Cotton made three diving catches, including a sinking fly ball by Brady Subart — had the ball gotten past him it was a sure double and possibly a triple. As he came down the first-base line, Subart shook his head then touched his hat to honor Cotton for his catch. Mountain Vista had its scoring opportunities. In the fourth inning, the Golden Eagles scored on a bases-loaded walk to tie the score 1-1. The score remained deadlocked until the home half of the seventh, the final inning of regulation play. With two outs, Brooks Ulrich drove a double to the outfield and beat the throw to third base. Eagles continues on Page 24

Player of the year: `Tate the Great’ Arapahoe sophomore may forego junior season to focus on national game By Jim Benton

jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com Arapahoe’s team lined up for a picture after the girls state tennis tournament at the Gates Tennis and held up a sign that proclaimed `Tate the Great.’ Tate is Tate Schroeder. She is the Arapahoe sophomore who won the Class 5A No. 1 singles championship on May 10 with a 6-4, 6-3 victory over Loveland’s defending state champion Rebecca Weissmann. Schroeder’s friend Caroline Carman made the sign that the Warriors displayed in their post-tournament team photo. “I didn’t know she was going to make the sign,” confessed Schroeder. “She came to watch my match. She made a couple signs. They were double-sided. On one said it said `Tate the Great’ and on the other side it said `Tate for State.’ I just loved it.” Schroeder, who has been nothing short of great, has been named the Colorado Community Media South Metro Girls Player of the Year. Warriors coach Andrzej Sosnowski wasn’t surprised by the honor or the support shown for Schroeder because she dedicated the season to Claire Davis, the

student who was killed in a Dec. 13 shooting at Arapahoe. “Tate is very much a team player,” said Sosnowski. “I can’t speak about the other girls she competes against but when the rest of her team is playing she is always on the side of the court and watching them and encouraging them. She could be by herself but she’s so much of a team player. She got a good sense of humor. I’m so proud of her attitude. On the court she’s so focused but off the court she has time for other people.” On the court, Schroeder was nearly unbeatable this season. She was 12-1 with the lone loss a three-set setback in April to Cheyenne Mountain’s Kalyssa Hall, the winner of the Class 4A No. 1 singles title. “Tate is a very dynamic player,” Sosnowski said. “She’s very aggressive in the way that she plays. She really stays focused when she plays. She attacks the ball a lot and puts pressure on her opponent right from the very first ball. She thrives on pace. “She might prefer her forehand a little more than her backhand but she’s able to hit winners with both her forehand and backhand. In the last year she’s been working a lot of her serve. So her serve is quite a weapon. She’s a workhorse on the court. She always gives 100 percent. There’s not a slow gear with her.” Schroeder, the daughter of Denver Broncos cheerleader director Teresa Shear, claims patience has been her biggest improvement this season. “I was a lot more patient this year,” she

Arapahoe High School sophomore Tate Schroeder won the Class 5A state title at No. 1 singles on May 10. Photo by Tom Munds said. “I waited for the right shot and the right opportunity. That’s something I’ve been working on for a long time. I’m glad it got to show at the state tournament. “I thought it was a great year. I made a lot of new memories and I had a great team. We got third in state, which is the best in school history. I was undefeated in 5A. I was really happy with the results.” Schroeder and Weissmann were recently selected to the National High School Tennis All-American Foundation team. Both players are sophomores, but many elite players skip high school tennis to play in national tournaments.

Schroeder hasn’t decided if she will play for Arapahoe as junior. “I’m not sure right now,” she said. “There are a lot of important tournaments during the time of the high school tennis and junior year is an important year for recruitment. “This season was great because the girl I beat (Weissmann) in the finals was No. 18 in the nation. That gave me a good thing to send out to college coaches. High school tennis doesn’t count toward your regular ranking. A lot of college coaches look more at your national ranking than high school tennis.”

For the 27th year, the Subaru Elephant Rock Ride will unofficially kick off the start of cycling season on the Front Range. The June 1 event in Castle Rock offers 100-, 62- and 32-mile rides, along with a 27-mile fat tire ride, and an eight-mile family fun ride. “It really is a great time to start the season,” event director Scott Harris said. “The roads are getting clear, temperatures are warming up and people are starting to get into their training.” The region’s largest cycling event will host live music, food and an expo showcasing the best of the outdoor industry. More than 60 vendors are expected to be at the expo. As the largest cycling festival in Colorado, event officials say they expect a projected 7,500 cyclists in attendance. “From the eight-mile family ride to the century course there’s something that’s right for everyone, even beginners,” Harris said. Proceeds from the Subaru Elephant Rock Ride go to assisting several nonprofit partners in raising funds for their organizations. In 2013, around $330,000 was raised on behalf of The Colorado Neurological Institute, Team Transplant, ALZ Stars, Team Zimbabwe, The Ride School of Denver and The Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation. The cost of the event is $85 for adults riding the 100and 62-mile courses, $6 for adults riding the 32- and 27mile courses, $50 for children riding the 32- and 27-mile courses and $40 for the eight-mile family ride. Each rider will receive a ticket to a post-ride Italian lunch, a specially designed 2014 Subaru Elephant Rock T-shirt, a virtual goodie bag and a chance to win dozens of valuable prizes and a bike number and wristband. Riders must wear their event wristband at all times. The wristband will provide access to the courses and refreshments at the aid stations and serve as a ticket to the post lunch and prize drawings at the post party. Helmets are required for all rides. For the 100- and 62mile courses, riders must be at least 15 years of age. Ride-day registration will be held at the Event Center at The Douglas County Fairgrounds from 4-8 p.m. May 31 and 5:30-9 a.m. June 1. Camping is available at the Douglas County Fairgrounds on Saturday night for both tent camping and RV camper parking. The cost is $20 per campsite and RV spot. “Cycling is fun alone, but there’s something special about riding in a group like this,” Harris said. This year the Subaru Elephant Rock Ride is introducing a new race to the festival. Douglas County’s Greenland Ranch open space will host Colorado’s 1st annual EROCK Sunrise to Sunset Front Range Relay Mountain Bike Race. The course is a fast 8.25-mile loop with stunning views of Pikes Peak and the Rampart Range and will take place May 31. The Sunrise to Sunset race is designed to offer recreational and competitive cyclists the opportunity to experience the thrill of competing in a challenging endurance race on a less technical off-road course. The daylong race offers competitors with awards, prize packages and a post-race awards celebration.

Lacrosse all-league team named

Eagles

Staff report

Continued from Page 20

Stacey Zuppa of Heritage-Littleton was named the 2014 Continental League girls lacrosse player of the year. Zuppa finished with 63 points and led the league in draw percentage at .508. ThunderRidge’s Alanna Gilbertson was the coach of the year. The Grizzlies tied for the league title with a 5-1 record and were 11-6 overall. The following is the All-Continental League girls lacrosse first team. Goalies - Kellen Toomey, Jr., Heritage-Littleton; Jesse Clark, Jr. Chap-

arral. Attack - Kirsten Greenlaw, Jr. ThunderRidge; Sophia Niemi, So., Valor Christian; Cera Cyester, Sr. , Chaparral; Kyleigh Peoples, Fr., Douglas County. Midfield - Stacey Zuppa, Sr., Heritage-Littleton; Kathleen Roe, So., Regis Jesuit; Millie Micho, Jr., ThunderRidge; Tori Gray, Sr., Chaparral; Bailey McCue, So., ThunderRidge; Lexi Davis, So., Chaparral. Defense - Whitney Jacob, Fr., Chaparral; Shelby Squire, So., ThunderRidge; Kelly Hodes, Sr., Regis Jesuit; Taylor Ann Meersman, Jr., Heritage-Littleton.

Mountain Vista intentionally walked the next two batters to set up a force play at any base in an effort to end the inning and keep the score tied. It didn’t happen because senior Reagan Todd hit the first pitch out of the park to give Regis the win. After the game, Quintana said Mountain Vista played Regis during the regular season and lost to them 2-0 so they knew the challenges they faced coming into the May 23 game. “(David) Peterson threw well for them today but we did get the bat on the ball at times,” he said. “We got guys on base but just didn’t get those key hits when we needed them. However, I am very proud of our team. They battled hard

and never quit trying to make plays and to score runs.” Quintana said he has nine graduating seniors on the team. He said they were team leaders and will be hard to replace but he also has some good young players eager to step up and make Mountain Vista competitive. “Just like always, we plan to be back next season,” he said. “All I ask is for our kids to be competitive and always do their best just like we saw our guys do here today.” The disappointment of the loss showed in Leonard’s face as he talked about the season. “Losing today hurts but I take away from this season the fact I played for the best team in the state,” said Leonard, a senior who plans to play for Washington State. “Every player came to compete every day. We pushed each other to get better in practice and we played hard in every game. I couldn’t ask for better teammates.”
