School project is for the birds Heritage Elementary gets OK for 12 chickens in coop By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com More than half of the elementary schools throughout Douglas County have a community garden tended by students and staff. Only one boasts a chicken coop. Constructed this summer at Heritage Elementary School in Highlands Ranch as part of two Eagle Scout projects, the coop and accompanying run — built from recycled material and discount wood — are now home to a dozen birds, including Salmon Faverolle, Speckled Sussex, Rhode Island Reds and Plymouth Barred Rocks. What began as an idea sparked by health teacher Sue Antonsen and a group of fifthgraders on the school’s farming committee has taken full flight. Antonsen, whose wheels started turning this past school year when 4-H members brought in some eggs to the school’s third-grade classrooms for the students to hatch, now sees an oppor-

tunity where the students can learn a multitude of lessons. “I thought, `Wouldn’t it be amazing if we were able to keep the chickens that they hatch and raise them in the garden,’” Antonsen said. “The kids approached the principal after I warned him we were coming and he was all for it.” Once it was approved by the principal, the students — led by now sixth-graders Benicio Archuleta and Madi Morris — put together a PowerPoint presentation for county officials who came to the school for a special hearing. After hearing the students’ plans to keep the coop clean, put in protective ground wire and cover the structures to keep predators out, as well as understand that the chickens would be quiet with the exception of when they laid eggs, the county approved Birds continues on Page 11

School citizens’ committee forming Plans call for diverse group to give board input By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Two people who have often stood on opposite sides of Douglas County School District issues are together starting a citizens’ committee. The group will provide community input to the school board. “The group will interact on a regular basis with the Board of Education, and one of the functions of the group will be to perform a `checks and balance’ for operations of the DCSD,” according to a statement from Gary Colley and board member Meghann Silverthorn. Though a formal name hasn’t been chosen, Colley said it likely will be the Douglas County School District Community Accountability Committee. For nearly three years, Colley has asked the board for improved community communication, at times accusing them of showing disrespect to people with oppos-

ing viewpoints. In 2012, Colley wrote and submitted a proposed public comment policy to the board that it did not consider. In June, he proposed the formation of a community group. “You don’t have a right to complain about anything if you’re not going to present a solution at the same time,” Colley said. “We are taking it upon ourselves to provide a solution they’ve been ignoring. This is going to work, but it has to be given time to work.” Silverthorn said she liked Colley’s idea and met with him for a brainstorming session. “The concept of Gary Colley and I working together is sort of unusual,” Silverthorn said. “That alone will attract individuals who may not have otherwise chosen to participate.” The two co-hosted an organizational meeting July 24. “We look to bring together a diverse, non-partisan cross-section of the Douglas County community to include parents, teachers, students and non-parent community members,” the statement contin-

ues. Silverthorn noted the group is not an official school committee. “We as a board understand we don’t know everything about everything,” Silverthorn said. “We have some incredible community members with some incredible ideas. I would like to foster that discussion with the community.” The group’s purpose isn’t to revisit the past, Silverthorn said, but to focus on the future. “It’s not about grinding axes or complaining about the way the past was done,” she said. “It’s about moving forward. I want to keep it productive.” Silverthorn recently filed her intention to seek re-election to the board, but said her decision to work with Colley on the group isn’t politically motivated. “I would argue if my motivation were my re-election — Gary has been an individual who’s disagreed with the board, so it’d be safest not for me to speak to him at all,” she said. “I would prefer to get out there and open those channels of communication.”

With the Broadway/C-470 construction project ahead of schedule and anticipated to be complete by Sept. 1, Douglas County engineers are already beginning concrete repair work that will slow traffic down on many major Highlands Ranch roads through the first of November. “I’m sure everyone has seen the cone zones and some people have been frustrated by them, but we are doing the best we can,” said Douglas County Commissioner Jill Repella, adding that attempts have been made to spread the budgeted work out as much as possible in the community this year. After spending a combined $21.6 million on road maintenance in Highlands Ranch between 2006 and 2012, the county ramped up its budget for Highlands Ranch road repair in 2013, projecting to spend $18.9 million over the course of the year on the community’s aging streets. The amount of money being spent on concrete repair and replacement alone is expected to reach $14.3 million this year, up $3.3 million over the total spent the last seven years combined. The county has begun concrete work already on Highlands Ranch Parkway between Santa Fe Drive and Broadway, and plans to wrap up the first phase of that project by Aug. 5 with an estimated timeline of Sep. 13-25 for the second phase. The other stretch of Highlands Ranch Parkway that will be impacted is from Burntwood Way to Fairview Parkway, with phases of work being done Aug. 6-26 and Sept. 26-Oct. 8. Stretches of Wildcat Reserve Parkway, McArthur Ranch Road, Lucent Boulevard and Plaza Drive will also see work in August as well as in the fall, with the last phase of work anticipated to be wrapped up Nov. 1. Other projects include the implementation of a new right-turn lane for westbound Wildcat Reserve Parkway onto northbound Broadway as well as the ongoing Quebec/ University/Lincoln intersection project. Wildcat Reserve Parkway work, which began in late June, is expected to be complete by the end of September. Phase 2 of the Quebec/University/Lincoln intersection work, which will include lane widening at the southeast intersection, is planned for this fall. Future phases, scheduled for 2014, will focus on minor widening of the other three corners in order to accommodate additional through lanes.

No far-off land for these missionaries 10:45 a.m. Bob, 65, sits on a low shady wall in the small quiet park sandwiched between the state Capitol and Civic Center in Denver. Headphones in one ear, he is listening to Rush Limbaugh, his belongings packed tightly into the bulging backpacks on either side of him. Along with a few other men perched farther down the wall or lounging under leafy trees, he is waiting. 11:10. The park is suddenly busy. Within minutes, a cluster of young men and women have set up white tents and tables upon which a buffet of food begins to appear. 11:45. A line has started to form as trays of chicken shish kebab are brought to the tables, now laden with bowls and trays of watermelon and fruits, potato and green bean salads, chocolate chip cookies, water, lemonade and other flavored drinks. “They give a good meal,” says Bob, eyes crinkling under a blue winter cap, the muffs pinned above his ears, three binder clips snapped on the brim. A sparse, black beard and mustache streaked with thick gray whiskers frame his tanned face. The food is good. But the conversation is better. “They’ll talk to you,” Bob says. “It’s pretty neat.”

They are young Catholic missionaries, who since Thanksgiving 2011 have turned the second Saturday of the month into Lunch in the Park for the homeless in downtown Denver. With help and donations from church volunteers around the metro area, they bring home-cooked meals to Lincoln Park, in the heat of summer and the cold of winter. But the real gift they bring is one many

conversation element, showing people they have dignity and they’re worth it,” she says. “They’re worth it just because of the fact they’re a person.” She arranges a vase of red and white fabric roses next to the statue, along with a large crucifix and wooden rosaries she’ll hand to those in the park who want them. “We really want to know the person, their joys and their struggles,” Belsole says. “It’s a relational thing. We really try to remember people’s names and their stories.” take for granted — someone to talk to, someone to listen, a human connection. “This lunch is wonderful,” Bill, 60, says in a soft voice as he sits on the grass, eating. “But that doesn’t even touch what they’ve done for me. ... I got a lot of my dignity back from them.” The missionaries of Christ in the City, a Catholic service organization that asks young people between 18 and 29 to dedicate one semester to a year working with the poor and other marginalized segments of society, come from throughout the country. They hope to grow spiritually while ministering — mind, body and spirit — to those in need. They find connections to resources and mental health support, if needed. They provide food, sleeping bags, clothes. They talk about God, if asked. But more than anything, they offer friendship. Under a blue tent just across from the buffet, Kati Belsole places a statue of the Virgin Mary on a card table in preparation for the recitation of the rosary, which takes place before food is served. She is 23, from New York, with a degree in theology, and she talks passionately about her desire to share God’s mercy with the poor and homeless. But “part of our ministry is just that

Bill will tell you his story is one of redemption. The missionaries found him on the 16th Street Mall nine months ago. He was drinking every day. “They would stop and talk to me.” A slight man, he wears wire-rim glasses and a cap. “Without fail, if I was there, I would see them.” He pauses, takes a bite from his plate. “Well, I’ve had people make a little effort, but I’ve never had anyone come every day that I could count on.” Recently, Bill says, a car hit him as he was crossing a street. The collision put him in the hospital for three weeks. “They would come see me every day, pray for me. When I started getting better, they still came by.” Raised in the Catholic faith, Bill began talking about God. “They helped me get my life back spiritually, even physically.” He has not had a drink, he says, in five months. He is living at Samaritan House shelter, working toward a job and his own place. Early next month, he will see his sister from Indiana for the first time in 1½ years. “They’ll just take you on a human basis,” Bill says. “People who have been

in the position I was in, we just don’t have many people who we can talk to on a normal level, whatever that might be. And they gave me confidence to talk to other people I normally wouldn’t have talked to.” He is quiet. “I don’t know how to put into words how thankful I am.”

Alex Lambis, 23, is a college graduate from Orlando with a degree in interpersonal communication. He spends two hours each day wandering the streets of Capitol Hill. He has come to know many of its homeless residents well. There’s Zachary, artistic and creative. And Art, tender and caring. Bernie is open and genuine. Jessica — loving, motherly. “I’ve had people ask me why I’m out there every day,” Alex says. “I say, `We’re just out here, to hang out with you guys and see how you’re doing.’ ... I think the constant presence makes a difference. It takes perseverance and constant effort and not giving up on people.” Alex has learned much about faith and human dignity from his friends on the street. He’s become more compassionate, he says. And “I’ve come to realize there is beauty that can be drawn in the middle of suffering — even if the situation is bad and ugly, good can be drawn from it.” On this Saturday in the park, he sits down next to Jessica. A pretty mother of two, she is 32. She has carefully braided her hair and shadowed her eyes. She wears hoops in her ears and bracelets, a bright red sundress and pink fingernail polish. She is homeless, she says, because of a series of bad decisions. Her children are with her mother. Jessica savors the home-cooked meals. Healey continues on Page 11

s Veteran cop facing serious drug charges

ave

Littleton police officer is in federal custody

And er d to.” By Jennifer Smith t

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com

Littleton Police Officer Jeffrey Allan Johnston, 46, is facing charges that could te mean life in prison after being arrested by rthe FBI on drug charges July 19. Cmdr. Trent Cooper said the 22-year of LPD veteran was taken into custody at his ny of home without incident. “The alleged drug activity was confined e. to his personal life and there is no indicapen tion or belief that any criminal misconduct ly. occurred in relation to his work with the t Littleton Police Department,” said Cooper. re According to an FBI affidavit, on July 15, ys Johnston called a known drug dealer who e has peddled his wares during parties at It t

and

Johnston’s Parker home in the past. Johnston asked if he could buy between 40 and 50 ecstasy pills. The FBI then conducted a “controlled delivery” of 37 pills and 6 grams of ecstasy powder, for which Johnston paid $1,300. Following the exchange, Johnston was taken into custody and his home was searched. In the kitchen, agents found the fresh delivery and a Colt Officers Model .45-caliber pistol loaded with seven rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber. They also found suspected cocaine, suspected steroids, hundreds of suspected prescription pills, additional firearms, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, empty pill pouches, a drug test kit and a scale. Johnston was taken to the Jefferson County Detention Center originally. He is now in federal custody, though FBI spokesperson Jeff Dorschner declined to specify

where. Johnston appeared in court to be advised of his rights and the charges on July 22. He faces one count of possession of ecstasy with intent to distribute, which carries a penalty of not more than 20 years in federal prison and a fine of not more than $1,000,000; one count of maintaining a drug-involved premises, which carries a penalty of not more than 20 years in federal prison and a fine of not more than $500,000; one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime, which carries a penalty of not less than five years and not more than life in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000; and one count of using a telephone to facilitate a drug trafficking felony, which carries a penalty of not more than four years in federal prison and up to a $500,000 fine. Johnston has been placed on unpaid administrative leave.

Cooper called him a model employee who was professional, meticulous and always willing to help. He was most recently assigned to the traffic motorcycle unit, conducting traffic enforcement and accident investigations. In the early and mid-1990s, according to Cooper, he was a member of the recently disbanded South Metro Drug Task Force. “If the charges are true, it’s an absolute disappointment, mixed with anger and sadness” said Cooper. “ We expect our officers to uphold a certain code and a certain behavior. We hold them accountable just like we would any other citizen that made the same mistake.” The government is asking the court that Johnston be held in custody without bond pending a resolution of his case. A detention hearing and a preliminary hearing are scheduled to take place on July 25 at 3 p.m.

HRCA director announces resignation Ziesman to move from area after 26 years By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com 306824

Contact HighlandsRanchRotary.org

Highlands Ranch Community Association Director Craig Ziesman announced his forthcoming resignation from the board at last week’s meeting. Ziesman, who has lived in Highlands Ranch for 26 years, works at Raytheon in Aurora and has plans to put his house on the market and build in the Stapleton North area, where he will be a short bike ride from work and live closer to two of his three adult children and two grandchildren. Ziesman has served the HRCA in multiple capacities since 1992, when he first became a delegate. He served as a director for one term in the mid-1990s, and then after a second go-round as a delegate a decade

later was elected to a second term as director in 2012. A former member of the Future Facilities Committee, he helped design Eastridge Recreation Center as well as the outdoor pool at Westridge. “I will continue to be a director until the sale of my home,” he said while announcing his plans to the HRCA delegate body July 16. “It’s been a great ride, I hope eventually you can Ziesman find a replacement who, like me, doesn’t mind being on the losing end of 1-4 battles. ... I kind of pride myself on being the conscience of this organization.” Ziesman, a Democrat, ran for House District 43 in 2004, losing to Republican incumbent Ted Harvey. And while his views don’t always coincide

politically with his fellow directors at the HRCA, he said “the current board has as good of an interpersonal working relationship as any board in recent memory.” “We do have different views about the issues of the day, but so far that hasn’t carried over into our personal relationships and I think we make a concerted effort to not let it,” he said. “We believe that reasonable people can disagree and still get along. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of that anymore in public discourse and I think it’s refreshing that this board has managed to accomplish that.” Ziesman, who moved to Highlands Ranch when the community had a population of 8,000 and one stoplight, said he would miss having the opportunity to make a difference. He attributed his move in part to the passing of his wife of 35 years, Nancy, who died suddenly last November.

Man convicted of ‘Night with the Coroner’ comes to Lone Tree sex assault on girl Free series to feature doctor, archaeologist

Already serving time for child pornography Staff report

A Highlands Ranch resident who is currently serving the second year of a five-year sentence for child pornography was convicted last week for sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust. Holzer James Holzer, 51, was found guilty of sexually abusing a child between the years of 1996 and 2010 in Highlands Ranch. He had worked as a self-employed real estate broker before his prison sentence. “Here, a brave young

woman bravely came forward and confronted the man who attacked and traumatized her in her childhood,” said 18th Judicial District Attorney George Brauchler. “Such uncommon courage is to be commended. “I am particularly disturbed that James Holzer previously exploited other children by viewing pornographic images of multiple victims.” Holzer is scheduled for sentencing on Sept. 19 in Division 3 in Castle Rock. He faces a sentence of between two years and life in prison. The case was investigated by Douglas County Sheriff’s Detective David E. Weaver and Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Melissa Coffey. Deputy District Attorney Christopher Gallo prosecuted the case on behalf of the 18th.

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The Douglas County coroner’s successful public outreach series continues at 6:45 p.m. Aug. 7 at the Lone Tree Arts Center. “The Truth Uncovered: A Night with the Coroner” will feature Larimer County coroner Dr. Pat Allen and state archaeologist Tom Carr, with an introduction from coroner Lora Thomas. Allen, 66, investigated the 144 deaths that occurred during the July 1976 Big Thompson flood in Larimer County. The flood was triggered by 8 inches of rain that fell in one hour, turning the normally placid 2-foot-deep trickle into a raging torrent of water 19 feet high, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association. It

took unsuspecting campers by surprise, sweeping away cars, campers and buildings. In addition to the 144 lives, the flood destroyed 418 houses and 152 businesses, causing more than $40 million in damages. Allen, one of four doctors with whom the Douglas County CoroThomas ner’s Office contracts, will talk about his experiences after the flood. Carr, whose office assists with and researches historic and American Indian burials, works with county coroners on discoveries of unmarked, unrecorded burials. “There’s always the chance that a citizen might stumble across a burial,” Carr said. “And they need to know the laws concerning what to do.” Thomas helped launch the “Night

Colorado Chapter of the Campaign to Fix the Debt Heads to Washington, D.C. for National Fly-In “I am honored to travel alongside other Coloradoans and deliver our message directly to our leaders. We remain committed to letting Senators Bennet and Udall and their fellow leaders in D.C. know that rushed, stop-gap measures like sequestration are not the answer. Our nation needs a comprehensive deficit-reduction agreement, or ‘grand bargain,’ to create an environment conducive to stability and growth. We believe this to be an urgent matter and the time for action is now.” Those attending the fly-in will take part in a number of campaign-related events, including the aforementioned meetings with Members of Congress and a reception that will outline the

progress made in the campaign to date and the group’s vision moving forward. The Campaign to Fix the Debt is a national nonpartisan coalition of business leaders, elected officials, community leaders, academics and individual citizens to bring concerned individuals together and call on lawmakers to address the ballooning national debt. Through grassroots organizing, earned media activities and high-profile outreach, the Campaign to Fix the Debt is urging lawmakers to set aside political differences to formulate practical solutions to our nation’s debt problems.

Chamber Women in Leadership Conference to Inspire Attendees

On Friday, September 20th, the South Metro Denver Women in Leadership (WIL) will be hosting its 5th Annual Women’s Leadership Conference themed “WIL to Prosper.” This exciting and enlightening event will take place at the Embassy Suites DTC, 10250 E. Costilla Ave, Centennial, between 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The day will include a nourishing breakfast, morning and afternoon breakout sessions, the Annual Women’s Leadership Awards Luncheon, networking and cocktails. The Conference is sponsored this year by Safeway-Denver Division, University of Colorado Hospital-Lone Tree Health Center, Schomp Automotive and Park Meadows Retail Resort. During the Women’s Leadership Awards Luncheon, four outstanding women who have helped to shape Denver business will be honored. KWGN news & talk show anchor Natalie Tysdal will be the Keynote Speaker. With a degree in broadcasting, Natalie has been with KWGN since 2002 and anchored the Emmy-award winning News2 This Morning show prior to her current position. According to her web site (www. natalietysdal.com), “There is no greater

compliment than to entrust a reporter with your story. It can be personal and sometimes difficult. I’ve learned about journalism from both sides of the camera as the subject of stories and the reporter. I choose my words very carefully and I treat every story with the respect it deserves.” It is that sincere yet no-nonsense and honest approach that has won the hearts of many and gained the trust of viewers.

With budget talks quickly approaching, chapter members will meet with Members of Congress to urge action On July 17, 2012, members of the Colorado chapter of the Campaign to Fix the Debt convened for a day on Capitol Hill, meeting directly with Members of Congress and urging action on the nation’s mounting and unsustainable debt. Nineteen of the twenty-three state chapters are represented, featuring a diverse set of backgrounds, including former Members of Congress, small business owners and students. “The opportunity to represent the Colorado chapter and to talk to our representatives in Washington about why the debt matters is undoubtedly exciting, said John Brackney, President & CEO of South Metro Denver Chamber.

with the Coroner” series, which regularly draws more than 100 people, in late 2011. During her 2010 run for the office, Thomas said people regularly asked her what the coroner does. “I felt I really needed to do some public outreach so the public knows what their tax dollars were paying for,” she said. “I think there’s a lot of interest in death. People want to understand more about death and what an investigation is all about.” Since some of the attendees are students, Thomas said, “We really try to include the idea that science is what solves a lot of these cases. If they want to be involved in this kind of work, it really pays to be involved in math and science classes.” Donations are accepted for the free event, and the money benefits suicide prevention efforts in Douglas County.

Friends start Sedalia farmers market Program is about more than just fresh produce

Engagement Sandri/Lamparter

By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com Four longtime friends from Sedalia decided this year to start something they’ve never seen in their town before, a farmers market. But more than just a market — they’re selling education, too. “The idea is to expose people to learning how to grow their own food, different methods of growing food,” said Johanna Santucci, 69, treasurer of the new Sedalia Community Market. The market, which kicked off in June, is held at the Sedalia post office parking lot from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays so that it wouldn’t compete with Saturday’s Castle Rock farmers market. It has the usual fresh garden produce, as well as such things as “shares of goats,” offered by the market’s vice president, Deanna Meye. She has a herd of about 20 goats and sells shares for $50 a month, which gives buyers a regular supply of fresh goat milk. But in addition, the market offers workshops on such things as an old German gardening technique that’s great for regions with water issues. To retain water longer, it involves digging a hole, filling with

And if someone is sick and needs a dose of Vitamin C, pinch off some needles, particularly new-growth needles, from a Douglas fir or any other pine tree. “It’s an incredibly dense (dose) of Vitamin C,” Meyer said. “And the flavor is very citrusy,” she said. In addition to Santucci and Meyer, the other two women starting the market are Carrie Thompson, president, and Regina Precosto, secretary. “It’s all about community,” said

Precosto, 53, who has lived in Sedalia for 20 years. “I wanted to help start this market because I believe in bartering, trading and, where necessary, buying as much as possible within my community. I like knowing who and where my food and other products come from.” Santucci said they also wanted to give an outlet to all those talented people in the area who make quilts, pottery and other things, but didn’t have any outlet to sell them.

R Official is unwelcome guest Carson says incident was result of misunderstanding By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Two Douglas County parents said they felt intimidated and threatened when school board president John Carson showed up unannounced at a private house party July 15. Carson said he was invited to the gathering of about 17 parents, held to discuss concerns about the current Douglas County School District board, school issues and the November board election. The hosts said Carson was not. “It was very intimidating and clearly Carson so inappropriate,” homeowner Jody Lynam said. “Here we are getting together to learn about why all these teachers are leaving. Well, here’s your answer. After what he did, I don’t have to hear anything else. He told me who I’m voting for.” The original invitation, an Evite sent to about 40 DCSD parents, states the event is not open to board members. Carson, board members Meghann Silverthorn and Doug Benevento said they were invited not through an Evite, but an email that did not include the sentence barring board members. Silverthorn and Benevento did not show up at the party. “If that was a misunderstanding, I certainly apologize for that,” Carson said during the July 16 school board meeting. “I personally find it rather shocking that members of the elected board of education would be prohibited from attending those.” Carson’s apology followed party co-host Denise Gonzales’ public statement about his unwelcome attendance, during which she accused the

Lynam, whose children will attend Saddle Ranch Elementary this year, said she didn’t recognize Carson’s face or name when he arrived at her Highlands Ranch home. Gonzales did, and asked Carson to leave. Carson did so, saying he would alert the media about the meeting. “It was a threat; that’s how I felt,” said Lynam, whose concerns about DCSD spring from the loss this academic year of 10 of the school’s 33 teachers. “I think they want to intimidate people from not talking about it. “If that’s an example of how the teachers are treated who work for them, that they feel they can treat parents in their homes that way, I can’t even imagine how teachers are being treated. No wonder they’re leaving.” Recent district-released statistics show overall teacher turnover at 11.7 percent, slightly lower than last year. Carson explained his comment about the alerting the media during the board meeting. “I just question the genuineness of what’s being put out there to the public,” he said. “I (want) to make sure the public’s getting accurate information. If these are one-sided political meetings, so be it. But let’s be clear about what that is.” Lynam and Gonzales said the private gatherings are among the few avenues community members have to share their concerns. “Parents are starting to ask questions and wonder why; we’re telling them why,” Gonzales said, adding the information is factual.

In May, Silverthorn said a friend invited her to another such meeting. Though she was allowed to stay, the homeowner later said the board member’s presence made her and the other guests uncomfortable. “I certainly am not going to go if I know board members are excluded,” Silverthorn said. “But I feel it’s incumbent upon me to get out there and get in touch with the community about what’s going on in the school district.” The house meetings have become increasingly common in advance of November’s school board election. A group called Douglas County Parents, which describes itself as a crosssection of community members aiming to elect four new board members, includes a “House Parties” link on its website that allows people to schedule the events. Carson’s term and that of three other board members expire in November. Carson is term limited and cannot seek re-election.

School board opposes Common Core Resolution says district’s standards exceed national expectations By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The Douglas County School Board unanimously adopted a resolution July 16 opposing the Common Core Standards in favor of the district’s own. The Douglas County School District’s standards are “more rigorous, more demanding, more thorough, and reflect higher expectations and aspirations for our students than any national standard now in existence, including the Common Core Standards,” according to the resolution. The Common Core Standards are a set of U.S. educational criteria intro-

duced in 2010 to improve the quality of American education. Though they aim to step up academic expectations and bridge a growing global achievement gap, DCSD’s curriculum is designed to surpass those standards. Colorado and most other states adopted the national curriculum, but individual districts in the state are allowed to set their own. “The Common Core Standards, while reasonable and appropriate for many school districts to emulate, are not reasonable or appropriate in Douglas County … and do not meet the expectations this district has for all of our students,” according to the resolution. DCSD instead developed what it calls the Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum, which place a stronger emphasis on critical thinking and other

skills, and makes changes to some teaching methods. School leaders previously have referred to the Common Core Standards as “the floor,” with the district’s standards rising above them. The resolution formally states DCSD’s opposition to “a one-size-fitsall application of the Common Core Standard.” “In Douglas County, our taxpayers, parents, teachers and students expect the very highest and rigorous standards — as embodied in our Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum — that will allow our students to learn today and lead tomorrow,” according to the resolution. School board president John Carson introduced and read the resolution during the board meeting. It was adopted without comment from other board members.

The Colorado League of Charter Schools recently recognized the Douglas County School District for its support of charter schools, awarding it the organization’s Pioneer Award. “We’re honored to receive this award as it acknowledges Douglas County School District’s commitment to putting what’s best for our students first and our belief in school choice,” Douglas County School Board mem-

ber Doug Benevento said. “As the only public school district in Colorado to fully embrace charter schools, this recognition truly re-emphasizes our belief that parents and families know what is best for their child.” CLCS described DCSD as a “hotbed for charter school activity,” honoring it for overcoming many challenges and smoothing the way for charter schools to come. “Douglas County School District’s flexibility and cooperation was vital to the opening of Academy Charter School and its successors during the first few years of charter school existence in Colorado,” CLCS President

Nora Flood said. “DCSD continues to be a leader in charter school authorizing today. It has pioneered efforts in charter school facility financing, funding equity, and special education.” In 1993, Academy Charter School opened in Castle Rock — one of the state’s first two charter schools. More than 10,000 students now attend DCSD’s 12 charter schools, and two more will open this fall. The newest schools include Castle Rock’s Aspen View and Parker’s American Academy. CLCS honored DCSD with the Pioneer Award on June 3, exactly 20 years after the Colorado Charter Schools Act was signed into law.

Roxborough woman seeks school board post Parent points to volunteer history, passion for district By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Software saleswoman Barbra Chase Burke said she wants to help take politics out of the Douglas County School District board. The Roxborough parent, running as Barbra Chase, seeks the District B seat now held by term-limited board president John Carson. “Let’s take the politics out of education,” said the mother of two DCSD students. “I’m running as unaffiliated on purpose. I think there’s a trend of people that are wanting the same: Let’s focus on our kids, and that’s it.” Chase describes herself as a “passionate advocate of Douglas County Schools,” but one who also is concerned about the district. “I’m concerned with the growing class size,” she said.

“I am concerned with fewer instructional hours for high school (students). I am concerned about the number of private meetings held by the board. I want to put the public back in public schools.” She has a particular interest in electives. “Because of my involvement with parent/teacher groups, the lack of funding and the cutting of specials like gym, art and music across the district, I’m very passionate about specials and having a well-rounded education for everybody,” she said. Despite her concerns, Chase has kind words for district officials. Chase “I think we have really great people in our district and big hearts on the board,” she said. “Everybody’s shared value is the best education for our kids. We can all improve, but until I’m sitting there, I don’t think I have the right be critical.” The Iowa native credits her success in

Phone survey draws flak Leader of pro-school board group denies claims of trouble By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com

A phone survey conducted by a group that supports the current Douglas County School District board outraged many who attempted to take it. Dozens of people report that the automated survey would not register any response that expressed disagreement with the school board and the changes it’s made. Additionally, the Douglas County Democrats said a statement made about them in the survey is false. Randy Reed, who runs the Douglas County Education Alliance that conducted the survey, said he found no problems with the recorded call. “The survey worked fine,” Reed wrote in an email. The former mayor of Castle Rock summarized criticism of the survey’s mechanics as “the trumped-up outrage of this week from the (teachers’) union.” But DCSD parents Connie Ingram, Cristin Patterson and dozens of others who ometook the survey insist it was faulty. pre- The recorded message lists changes monmade under the current school board, inh thecluding “pay-for-performance, expanded hem. school choice and charter schools” and distatescontinuation of paying a portion of union -fits-officers’ salaries. It concludes by asking Corethe caller to press “1” if they support the board’s reforms, “2” if they disagree, and “3” yers,if they’re not sure. xpect Ingram said the survey wouldn’t accept stan-the “2” response. aran- “I pressed `2’ and nothing happened,” thatsaid Ingram, who received the call at her odayHighlands Ranch home July 16. “So I kept o thepressing `2,’ and it would go back to repeating the question.

`2’ answer is not accepted,” she said. “But I would be curious if they called back and I pressed `1’, to see what happens.” Patterson said both she and her husband had similar experiences. “I pressed `2’ and there was a long, long, long pause; then it returns to the questions again,” she said. Reed said the DCEA survey reached thousands of Douglas County residents, and data gathered from those calls includes an assortment of “1,” “2” and “3” responses. “We will be happy to share those internal results when the ACLU and the AFL-CIO drop their various lawsuits with the district, and these liberal attack groups admit that test scores are up, the dropout rate is down and that they are really just trying to create a bogus boogeyman that distracts from the fact that every metric shows this school district is improving and moving forward,” Reed wrote in his email. The recording also states that groups including the local Democratic Party “have outspokenly opposed the school board.” Douglas County Democrats’ chairman Mike Jones said that’s not true. “As a party, we haven’t made any official statement on the school board,” he said. “Since it’s a nonpartisan race, we would tend to stay neutral on it.” Teachers’ union president Brenda Smith said concerns about the DCEA survey aren’t union-related. “Obviously, this is the drum that they’re going to beat,” she said. “This is just a way they’re belittling the parent and community concerns that are out there.” The AFL-CIO is the umbrella organization for U.S. unions, including the Douglas County Federation teachers’ union. The ACLU is among those who filed suit against the district in 2011 over its voucher program, in a fight that could go before the Supreme Court. The DCF filed suit against DCSD this year, alleging unfair hiring practices and termination of a sick-leave bank. The DCF suit has not yet gone to court.

life to a public school education. She served as executive director of the Roxborough Elementary School Parent Teacher Involvement Committee that helped add another school building in the unincorporated area of northwest Douglas County. Roxborough Intermediate, serving third through sixth graders, opened in 2008, alleviating crowding at the original school building. That structure became Roxborough Primary, and serves preschool through second graders. Chase also volunteers with the parent/ teacher group at Ranch View Middle School. She owned a now-closed company called Organization in-a-box, which helped guide the operations of community-based organizations. In 2010, the company launched PTO in-a-box for parent teacher organizations. Her husband Sean also has been heavily involved in the Roxborough schools and DCSD. The Burkes worked with other Roxbor-

ough residents to create One Roxborough, the bedroom community’s version of a town council. As busy as her life is, Chase said she has time to serve on the board. “I think we all have time,” she said. “The question is priority. I will make time because it’s a priority not only for my kids, but because I love kids. I think I can help be responsible for their experiences and their memories and their preparedness for whatever lies in their future.” Chase joins a growing slate of school board candidates, including another in District B. Stephen Boyd, a Republican from Larkspur, also has filed with the Colorado Secretary of State. Other declared candidates include Ronda Scholting, Nick Land and incumbent Meghann Silverthorn in District G, and Kevin Leung in District D. Current board members Carrie Mendoza, serving District D, and Doug Benevento of District E, whose terms expire in November, have not yet declared their candidacy for the November election.

Program digging deeper into public policy An additional in-depth view on a tough question is always valuable. That’s the result we are hoping for following the announcement last week of an economic measurement initiative backed by several regional entities and tasked to be conducted by the Business Research Division of the University of Colorado at Boulder’s Leeds School of Business. The school will run the program on behalf of main funding sponsors the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp., the Denver South Economic Development Partnership and the Common Sense Policy Roundtable. This econometric model developed by Regional Economic Models Inc., or REMI, promises to break out costs, benefits, positives and negatives of state issues in greater detail for lawmakers, business leaders and

in turn the public. The first project will take on Initiative 22 — expected to be on the ballot in November — which is a great choice. Gov. John Hickenlooper has already given an initial nod to Initiative 22, the type of tax measure that usually needs a push from the sitting governor to have a shot. The initiative asks voters to increase the state income tax rate from 4.63 to 5 percent for those making an income of $75,000 or

less and 5.9 percent for income above that amount. Under the measure, the Legislature has put forth a plan to infuse the state with about $950 million for education. We are starting to see many questions generated about what the real impacts will be and where the money will actually go. So we are very pleased to see this economic model launched in time for this momentous decision. Typically in coverage of these major measures, we come across various evaluations, but too often the information comes from parties with clear interests — in extremes that can extend from hardened opposition to increased taxes to open arms for all funding for education.

letters to the editor

question of the week

Should water restrictions be relaxed? In light of some recent heavy rains and the forecast of the more to come, Colorado Community Media asked people if they

thought existing water restrictions should be relaxed to permit residents to water their lawns more frequently.

“I don’t think water restrictions should be changed because we should be doing what we can to conserve water.” — Lisa Olken, Littleton

“We need to build another dam and stop giving all our water to Las Vegas and southern California.” — Mike Nicholls, Lone Tree

“The restrictions don’t seem too severe and probably are needed because we should cut back on water use so we can fill up the water storage areas.” — Gerry Lane, Highlands Ranch

“I am pretty happy … now that Denver has changed its rules from only allowing lawn watering two days a week to allowing watering three days a week.” — Jeannie Frick, Denver

The running of the dummies “Three gored, 23 others injured in running of the bulls.” It’s simply not enough. I won’t be satisfied until tens upon tens are gored and injured. It’s extremely entertaining. Or maybe it’s the adrenaline rush that makes it worth it to the runners and the spectators. I think it’s 19th-century. “Tension soared when one of the animals charged a 31-year-old Spaniard and tossed him on the ground with his horns for almost 30 seconds as fellow runners tried to pull it away by its tail. The man clung to one of the horns as screams were heard all around.” I like it. I like it very much. Six bulls are let loose in the morning to run in the Pamplona encierro. Later in the day they are slaughtered in the bullring. Runners, who just sang a benediction (“Macho Macho Man”) are prohibited from “inciting” the bulls. What do you call it, what they do, if it’s not inciting? Let’s reverse things. Let six of these imbeciles loose and have hundreds of bulls chase them around. Now we’re talking. There’s nothing bold, brave, heroic, courageous, dashing or daring about purposefully herding and chasing animals to their death. I know it’s cultural (stupidity), like dogfighting and cockfighting. I know it’s traditional (stupidity). But isn’t it about time to look at these animals differently, perhaps with some respect? Around the world, some unconscionable things are done to pit bulls, eagles, foxes, condors, seals, whales, porpoises, and dolphins. “Every year,” a petition website says, “in Denmark, specifically the Faroe Islands, innocent and helpless Calderon dolphins are slaughtered brutally by the Danes. Why you may ask? Simply because. A pointless and stupid right of passage to manhood” (“Macho Macho Man”). Slaughtering a dolphin to prove that you are a man is a right of passage to ignorance. Hemingway would never buy me a drink. Neither would Picasso. I wouldn’t let

the best matador in Spain wash my car. There are complete yahoos on The History Channel who boast about slaughtering alligators. I watch the channel all of the time, except when “Swamp People” is on. It’s as if they turned programming over to a Hatfield or McCoy for an hour. Why take out a profound arrogance on animals? Of course, if we didn’t there would have been no King Kong. I know there are women who run with the bulls, but most of the runners are men, aggressively masculine men, who must reek of testosterone. I also know that there are men who fly to Pamplona to have their testosterone inhaled by other men. You probably could get pregnant just standing in line at the Pamplona Starbucks. Pitting dogs against each other makes me angry-sad. If the losers aren’t killed by the winners, they are killed by their owners. Running with the bulls is as foreign to me as runways. Running with the designers doesn’t make me angry or sad, it just gives me the all-out creeps. But bull running and fashion shows have big audiences, ones that I will never touch. I just looked at my shelter dog and said that I was glad there is no running of the dachshunds. He reminded me that there is. Even my little friend’s breed is subjected to human condescension. Go bulls! Go dachshunds! Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at craigmarshallsmith@comcast. net

ment Corporation, is among those who welcomes the added analysis. He said that while the state does well breaking out the expenditures behind major policy changes, the full fiscal impacts are not as clear. In addition to producing more complete analysis, he said the econometric model will be neutral, not colored by political frameworks. We have been reminded that the econometric model is a tool, but at first look it appears to be a very good one. Our hope is that this new analysis offers a valuable breakout that covers key factors quickly and clearly in a way that cuts to the core of issues more quickly. Further we hope to see the process have an impact in the vetting process for public policy in formative stages.

highlands ranch needs better roads

Once again we find ourselves in the middle of summer, which includes concerts, picnics, road trips and road repair. As I travel throughout Colorado on excursions that are on back roads, some dirt, some gravel, some with pavement in need of repair, I often encounter a washboard effect that I also get when I drive on the concrete roads of Highlands Ranch. I watch as we replace some of the concrete sections, and after replacement instead of a nice new smooth road, I find myself driving over a nice new rough road. Every section is level, but when put end to end the result seems to be as if we laid patios end to end, each one level but not aligned with the next one. Drive Lucent, Broadway, Wildcat Reserve and watch as occasionally someone will stop to check for a flat. Drive County Line, Arapahoe Road — no problem. Why do we hire patio contractors to pave roads?

School board’s efforts appreciated

Regarding Susan Meek’s guest column, “Time to address parent concerns”: My wife and I have two young children. One will be attending a charter school this fall and the younger one will be entering kindergarten in two years. My wife and I are among the many parents in the district who are grateful to the Douglas County School Board for their efforts to improve and increase the educational choices available. Susan Meek’s guest column mentions the board referring to parents as “customers” as if that is a bad thing. I have now worked in the private sector for over 20 years and my co-workers and I have always recognized that the most important purpose of our company is to provide for the various needs of our “customers” or

Highlands Ranch Herald

“clients” with the highest quality products and services. There are many children in the district with a different mix of needs, and the parents of these children are in the best position to determine what these needs are. Our school board recognizes that to optimize the meeting of these various needs for all children, parents need to have more options and more influence regarding educational choices for their children, and special-interest groups like unions should have less influence. The board has worked to improve and expand these choices to parents by increasing the autonomy of neighborhood public schools, adding charter schools and piloting the Choice Scholarship Program, which will further expand choices to include a number of private partner schools. Because my children are entering their formal schooling years, I appreciate the efforts this school board has made to move away from the one-size-fits-all model towards a “system” with expanded choices and incentives for education providers to innovate and better meet the needs of all children. Chad Mathis Castle Rock

Pro-school board survey seems rigged

I just received a robo-call from the Douglas County Education Alliance. It stated that they want my opinion on education in Douglas County. After asking a lengthy question, which outlined all the “wonderful” things the current school board has introduced to Douglas County Schools, they asked me to press 1 if I support the actions of the current board, 2 if I opposed the actions, and 3 if it was too soon to tell. I pressed 2, but evidently, they didn’t like that answer because they asked the Letters continues on Page 11

When agreeing to disagree, agree

o Whether it is in a business situation or hat a family setting, so many relationships are he impacted and decisions avoided because nges, of a lack of consensus or our inability to n reach a unanimous conclusion. We reach the point of being polite and el saying something like, “Let’s just agree to disagree,” and we believe we can move on hoping the other person is under the ono- same impression. But what did we really it accomplish? pe In some cases we completely avoid le making the decision and in that situation y both people lose. And in other cases we re walk away feeling offended or hurt as our e to opinions are taken out of context, and bevet- fore we know it the relationship becomes tive strained. Again, everyone loses. You see the issue is that although we use the saying, “let’s just agree to disagree,” we don’t actually stick to it. Instead we walk away and tell others about the disagreement or we try and tell our side of the story to anyone who will listen. And the person ucts we were arguing with is probably doing the very same thing. rict

So instead of both parties losing and feeling like they didn’t have an opportunity to eat at the restaurant of their choice, or seeing the movie that they had been waiting to see, what if we practiced a different technique? Instead of agreeing to disagree, come up with option B, or a second and third choice. It works the same way in business. So many times when I am coaching a client, they share a story about a peer or manager, or sometimes even their boss or a customer, where they just could not see eye-to-eye. It created angst and tension and people started operating in silos. My guidance for my client was to be really pre-

t s o

that best meets everyone’s needs. And if we take this path, take the high road, and people still want to argue or fight with us, all we can do is walk away knowing that we really did try everything in our power to come to an agreement. And if they decide to become angry with us or revert to talking about us to other people, we should not worry. All we can do is manage what we do and say, we cannot manage or stress about how others act and feel. My good friend Frank Singer reminded me of a quote, “Other people’s opinions of us is none of our business.” Do you focus on the disagreement or the path to agreement? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com. When we are prepared with alternative solutions and have a heart and mind focused on the needs of others, it will be a better than good week.

pared before going into their next meeting. If people started office politics or jockeying for position, be prepared with options for the items and issues that are important to the greater good of the company or customer. It is so easy for a meeting to get off track as people champion their own agendas, and if we take the time to be ready with alternative solutions and consider the needs and wants of others we can mitigate the chances of a situation arising where everyone loses. Many authors and experts have used the term, “Seek first to understand and then to be understood,” and when find ourselves in a combative situation or even a minor disagreement we should take the time to think through things from the perspective of others. This is a great first step to defusing those minor disagreements that sometimes escalate to big ugly arguments. I am simply suggesting that instead of always trying to win for the sake of winning and ending up losing anyway, it is always better to find a way to agree on a solution

ground wire, using recyclable materials from the school’s old greenhouse. “It’s really interesting to see how they like it,” Robert said. “When we watched the first chicken hop up the steps and go in, it was really pretty exciting.” And while the chickens all get comfortable in their new home over the summer, Antonsen said plans for the fall call for teaching about sustainability as students use scraps from the cafeteria to supplement the chicken feed, as well as to turn into compost to add nutrients to the garden. “It takes a lot of responsibility to take care of chickens,” said sixth-grader Jared Mata. As per funding, the structures were taken care of by the Boy Scouts, and everything else the chickens need in the future will be paid for through the sale of eggs.

Douglas County School District.” She repeats the union line that has been answered and refuted in virtually every public school board meeting that class sizes have “exploded,” instructional time has been cut, the district is holding back resources and she even manages to voice disdain that the school board considers Douglas County parents as their “customers.” How novel! I agree with Ms. Meek that something is “wrong” in the school district. What is wrong is a union that has failed us, failed our children, politicized the educational

process and wants to take power away from parents and stick it back in its monopolistic hands. The union’s idea of an educational system has been badly broken for a very long time and we’ve all paid dearly for it. This school board has been the most accessible and transparent in recent memory and its success in improving the district is clearly visible for those who bother to look past the union smears.

Distillery missing beloved bathtub Gin maker offers free drinks for return of 400-pound vessel

BATHTUB MYSTERY To report the whereabouts of the missing bathtub, contact: Andrew Causey, downslope.distilling@gmail.com 303-810-4831

By Deborah Grigsby

dgrigsby@ourcoloradonews.com Andrew Causey makes gin. Although the spirits he channels with partner Mitch Abate at the Downslope Distillery are far from the storied bathtub hooch made during Prohibition, he does keeps a bathtub around as a sort of a sentimental tribute to days gone by. But as Causey opened his distillery the morning of July 7, he noticed something was missing. That something was the 400-pound cast iron bathtub that used to welcome tourists and tasters to the Centennial-based smallbatch distillery. “I really had to just stop and do a double-take,” Causey said. “At first we thought we would get a ransom note, but we didn’t.” Although the tub was old, he joked that it was not a claw-footed model, “so it probably didn’t walk off.” The giant enameled vessel was actually a hand-me-down from a relative, and Causey thought that parking it in front of the distillery’s front entrance would spark a

Centennial gin maker Andy Causey wants his bathtub back. Causey owns the Downslope Distillery, just off Arapahoe and Jordan roads, and says thieves swiped the 400-pound cast iron bathtub that sat near the front door of their industrial park operation. More a nod to gin makers and distillers of the past, Casuey says the tub isn’t worth much, but he has offered a liquid reward for its safe return. Photo by Deborah Grigsby giggle and add a bit of period charm. Causey said he never thought about bolting it to the ground, because, well, it weighs 400 pounds. Hoping to catch a glimpse of the bath-

tub bandits in action, he checked with neighboring businesses that have security cameras. “And of course, when we looked, all the cameras were pointed in every other direc-

tion except where we needed them,” he said with chuckle. Causey cedes he didn’t report the incident to law enforcement, simply because he figured it was a lost cause and officers probably had a lot more important things to do than chase after his missing bathtub. “I’m guessing by now it’s probably already chopped up and in the scrap pile, sold for the value of the metal,” he said with a sigh. However, should the tub still be intact, Causey said he’d like to have it back. No questions asked. It’s more about the bathtub, he said, than trying to finger someone for petty theft. “Really, I just want the bathtub back,” he said. Causey said if anyone delivers the tub back — in one piece — to the distillery, he’d splurge for a round of drinks at the tasting table, no matter what the motive. The only legal catch to his offer, of course, would be that everyone is old enough to drink.

You never get a second chance at a good first impression. Do everything you can to make your home as clean, welcoming and well maintained as possible. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Never settle. Buying a home is the biggest purchase most people will make in their entire life. In today’s market, it can take some time. I always encourage my clients to be patient and wait for the right fit. What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? I have certainly encountered many strange situations... walking into homes and finding people who were not expecting us has led to some interesting circumstances, but I have also had many wonderful things happen. Meeting clients who become lifelong friends is a favorite of mine!

Residents take steps toward fitness Zumba, barre conditioning use dance to get people moving By Savanna Walker

Special to Colorado Community Media

Sally Costanzo, right, is all smiles during a Zumba workout July 17 at Northridge Recreation Center in Highlands Ranch.

Stepping up to the barre

Barre conditioning, another dance-inspired fitness class, is offered at Southridge Recreation Center and likewise extends the benefits of dance to all skill levels. “Dance-inspired fitness classes are geared for all skill sets, and they’re more intuitive than fitness classes — you can just listen to your body and do what you can,” instructor Julie Sweeney said. Inspired by the barre work done by ballerinas before they dance, barre conditioning is ideal for those looking for a toned, leaned physique. “We concentrate on a small range of motion,” Sweeney said. “In ballet they focus on long, lean lines. We work the same muscle groups, which are all the problem areas

for women. Inner and outer thighs, arms, glutes, and abs.” Like Zumba, barre classes can be intense. “It’s deceptive because you feel the burn but it dissipates after you stretch, but the day after or the day after that you’ll be sore,” said Sweeney. While dance-inspired, barre classes focus more on conditioning. “People are surprised that ballerinas and other dancers are also athletes,” says Sweeney. “Broadway dancers perform eight times a week and football players, they might have an exercise session but they only play once a week. Why not shape and create a workout that focuses on the dancer’s body?” Yet while classes can be intense, “You do not have to be a dancer, there is no dancing, it’s just what ballerinas do before they dance. We listen to hip-hop instead of a piano concerto,” Sweeney said, laughing.

Both Zumba and barre provide a different approach to fitness that can help newcomers discover the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. “If halfway through, they have a big smile, I know that I’ve won them over and they’ll be coming back. It can be a steppingstone into other, more challenging forms of exercise,” said Lucero. Sweeney also lauded the surge of interest in dance classes, saying “the goal is to get more people involved in exercise and help people find what clicks for them so that they can be active, seek a healthy lifestyle and make that part of who they are.” And for Lucero, Zumba’s impact goes beyond fitness. She cites her class members as “the reason I function, they got me through my divorce, they got me through my son going to basic training, they got me through quite a bit. Zumba creates a lot of friendships.” And since, according to both instructors, dance-inspired fitness classes are increasing in popularity and variety, the benefits of these programs will continue to spread.

Around 30 women gather in one of the fitness studios at Northridge Recreation Center in Highlands Ranch. While there’s some jockeying for front-row positions, most of the participants talk to friends or get in a few last sips of water. But once instructor Aminta Lucero starts her music and the warm-up begins, the energy of the class spikes as everyone present snaps to attention. A beat pumps through the air, so loud that Lucero has to shout to be heard over it, and class begins. Zumba is offered at several of the Highlands Ranch Recreation Centers with classes ranging from the traditional format to Zumba Gold for seniors. And although the dance-infused fitness program started in 2001, it shows no signs of slowing down, especially if its participants remain as devoted as Angela Fuller, who attends Lucero’s class. Fuller describes Zumba as “an addiction.” A former gymnast and cheerleader, Fuller took a break from fitness until discovering Zumba. “I’m a mom of two kids and I just could not lose the weight,” she said. “But after taking Zumba for two months, I dropped 20 pounds. It’s such a full body workout.” Lucero, who took her first Zumba class only three years ago and is now a popular instructor, endeavors to incorporate as many areas of the body as possible. “I always do arms and legs, and I try to focus on fitness. So we’ll always do an arm song.” But the intensity of the workouts is only one of the reasons Zumba has a passionate following. “Hands down, because the hour goes by like that,” Lucero said. “My girls come out dripping wet, and don’t even realize how hard they worked. And it’s an hour where they don’t have to think about their hus-

Champion dog groomer loves a challenge Henriksen hones skills through competition By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Fluffy is a dog fraught with irony. He’s a bichon frise, a breed often touted as safe for people allergic to dogs. But sadly, Fluffy himself is allergic to a long list of things — cats, cotton, hemp, horses and more, including many ingredients common in grooming products. “It’s so strange that a dog that’s supposed to be hypoallergenic for the benefit of all of us has all these insane allergies,” said Carolyn Brimson, Fluffy’s owner. That’s why she feels lucky to have discovered groomer Christie Henriksen. “She’s a good part of the ongoing general good health of our dog,” said Brimson. Henriksen is conscientious about avoiding the multitudes of things Fluffy can’t tolerate, and she keeps a close eye out for the hot spots that indicate a flare-up. And to top it off, says Brimson, she’s an excellent groomer. She’s proved that by achieving the level of master groomer and winning a bundle of first-place awards in National Dog Groomers

Christie Henriksen is a master groomer and has won a bundle of first-place awards in National Dog Groomers Association of America competitions. This week, she’s competing at an international challenge held in Las Vegas. Courtesy photo

Littleton in 2007, started working in a pet spa and joined the NDGAA. When she found a storefront at 5501 S. Broadway that was cheaper than her booth rent, she jumped. Her business, Uptown Pups, has been open since last

October. Her goal is to create a spa experience for the dogs that’s equal to what humans love, and she even hopes to add a doggie masseuse eventually. Her shop is clean and freshly remodeled, and there’s not a trace of wet-dog smell. Beyond the basic services, extras include tooth brushing, nail polish, fur dyeing and even tattoos. “I want to be the best of the best,” she said. “That’s what I’m striving for. I’m a master groomer; now I want to be more than a master groomer. I always want to get better and better, and that’s why I’m doing these competitions.” Judges tell her she has a great eye for symmetry and that her trims are clean and crisp. “I see the other dogs, and they look so good, and I wonder why my dog stands out,” she said. Contestants must bring their own dogs with them, so a few of her clients will travel with her. “They get a free groom out of it, and a little fame,” she said. She hopes to soon have her own dog to travel with. Kodiak walked over the rainbow bridge a couple of years ago, but his greatgreat-grandchildren were expected to be born this week. “It’s exciting to get a little piece of him,” she said.

IKEA does right thing

“Sea Mudra,” oil on canvas by Jonathan M. Wright, is Best of Show in the annual Kaleidoscope Juried Exhibition at Arapahoe Community College. Courtesy photo by Dustin Ellingboe

Kaleidoscope show lives up to name By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com The Annual Juried Kaleidoscope Exhibition at ACC’s Colorado Gallery of the Arts grows stronger with each succeeding year. The show, which runs through July 31, was juried this year by Marsha Wooley, a longtime Arapahoe Community College faculty member and well-known landscape painter, and Christine Katzenberg, a ceramic artist who teaches and coordinates exhibits at Goodson Recreation Center in Centennial. The two selected a show that fits comfortably in the gallery from a large number of entries. Best of Show was awarded to the mysterious “Sea Mudra” by Jonathan M. Wright, an oil on canvas painting of a woman in the water, but with four arms in symbolic pose, like an Indian religious figure. One wonders where she came from. The First Place ribbon went to Robert Schroeder’s large “Brick Pot With Pipe Handle,” a tongue-in-cheek, but expertly

crafted, clay sculpture. The artist has several more in a brick pot series in the show, which add some heft to the three-dimensional exhibits. Second Place was awarded to Joyce McClain’s “Lake Garda,” a detailed solar etching, which draws the viewer in for a close look. Third Place winner is S. Williams’ bright watercolor “Details Bike,” a portrait of the antique bicycle with flowers in its basket that greets customers at the Details store on Littleton’s Main Street. Honorable Mentions were given to Barbara Veatch for a mixed-media abstract painting; to Roseanne Stearne’s airy mixed media painting “Celebration II,” and to Gayla Ruckhaus’ “Iris,” created from colorful, textured wool fibers, pressed on a board, under glass. This broad-based show, open to all, is a nice representation of the many interests community artists pursue, with a variety of skills. The jurors’ statement had this description: “Upon walking through the gallery we were impressed by the variety of art in our

The diversity is represented in each subject matter, technique and content. We decided that each artist should have at least one work of art in the show. If there were multiple submissions, we wanted to show strengths through similarity or originality and diversity. Other considerations included careful analysis of the artist’s use of the art elements and principles. We awarded the strongest representations of a variety of media. Finally, we want to thank all artists who submitted to the Kaleidoscope show. It is our wish that each and every one of you continue to create, grow, and evolve as artists.”

Poundstone coming to Chautauqua Comedian entertains without nastiness By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com On most weekends, more than 5 million people who tune into NPR’s news quiz show, “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me,” enjoy the clever comedian Paula Poundstone, who works at the intersection of politics and comedy, managing to nail a situation accurately and with humor time after time. An author and lecturer as well, Poundstone will appear in Colorado at 8 p.m. Aug. 3 at the historic Chautauqua Auditorium in Boulder. “Appear in concert” is what they call it, but she will demonstrate why she is thought of as one of America’s great humorists. She holds spontaneous, impromptu exchanges with the audience over all sorts of topics, managing to entertain without being mean or nasty. Political comment is current and artful and she is a master storyteller. Honors have accumulated from coast to coast for this funny woman, who lives in

Santa Monica, Calif., with her family. Her 2006 book “There is Nothing in This Book That I Meant to Say,” is still available in audio and paperback versions, and her new comedy CD, “I Heart Jokes: Paula Tells Them in Boston,” was released, appropriately, on April Fool’s Day, 2013. Another side to Poundstone’s activities that may be less well known is her ongoing role for the American Library Association. She is National Spokesperson for United for Libraries, the national Friends of the Library citizen support network. Groups across the nation work to raise funds and awareness for these valued community institutions — and come forth when there is a fracas over a book or topic. She says each show she does is different, so the audience can expect new and current material when Paula Poundstone steps onto the Chautauqua stage.

IKEA in Centennial donated nearly $60,000 of products in comfort kits for families forced out of their homes during Colorado’s Black Forest Fire in June. In all, 800 kits were created; 500 for adults and 300 for children. “There really wasn’t a question of if we’d do something to help our neighbors, it was a question of what we’d do,” said local marketing, PR and community outreach manager Annie Boeckman. IKEA Centennial co-workers brainstormed product ideas to include in the kits. Each bag contained basic necessities focusing on eating, sleeping and hygiene. “The products chosen for the bags were a team effort,” Boeckman said. “Our coworkers put themselves in the mindset of an evacuee and thought about what they’d need if they had to up and leave at a moment’s notice.” Each IKEA bag contained a pillow, blanket, towel, water bottle and utensils for eating and writing. The child kits also contained markers, paper and a soft toy to keep them entertained during a stressful situation. IKEA Centennial realized firsthand results of their efforts in an email from an IKEA visitor on July 2: “I want to thank you for the kind packages you sent to the Red Cross to help those in the Black Forest Fire! My sister lost everything, but had toys for her grandkids to play with because of your kindness.” It took just five days to pull more than 10,000 products, set up an assembly line on the store’s receiving dock and have co-workers assemble the bags. Many IKEA employees came in early or stayed late knowing time was of the essence for the evacuees. The New Jersey IKEA transport team, in charge of setting up trucks for product delivery to and from distribution centers, quickly contracted a 53-foot trailer to transport the bags to Colorado Springs. The kits were delivered to the American Red Cross Disaster Assistance Center on June 21 and distributed by Red Cross volunteers the following week.

Panzano chef competes

Elise Wiggins, executive chef of Panzano in Denver, will represent Colorado at the Great American Seafood Cook Off in New Orleans on Aug. 3. One of the most prestigious culinary competitions in the United States, The Great American Seafood Cook Off emphasizes the importance of cooking with domestic and sustainable seafood. In New Orleans, Wiggins will compete against more than a dozen top seafood chefs from across the country for the title of “King” or “Queen” of American Seafood. The chefs will prepare dishes that showcase sustainable fish. Garrett Wiggins, Elise’s younger brother, will act as her sous chef at the event. Interestingly, Wiggins grew up in West Monroe, La., and moved to Colorado to pursue her cooking career. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to return to Louisiana and represent Colorado at the Cook Off in New Orleans,” said Wiggins, whose restaurant, Panzano, has a Four Diamond rating from AAA. “I look forward to meeting chefs from other states as we help spread the word about the importance of sustainability.” Parker continues on Page 29

Broken cycle, broken heart for Berry Littleton racer runs into bad luck at Bandimere By Scott Stocker

Special to Colorado Community Media Littleton’s Mike Berry had a broken heart when his Pro Stock Motorcycle broke in the classification semifinals of the Mopar Mile High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway, causing a subsequent loss to Hector Arana Jr. of Milltown, Ind. Berry had qualified in the No. 2 position behind the No. 1 qualifier, Adam Arana, who would foul out on his second run, losing to former Trinidad resident Andrew Hines. Shawn Gann of Stoneville, N.C., was the classification winner, beating Hector Arana Jr. with his pass of 7.351 seconds at 181.08 mph to Arana’s 7.376/182.11 effort. “I blew it up and we spun the wheels,” said a dejected Berry. “I’m ecstatic about the weekend. We just need to fix the problem. I’m not going to do the rest of the Western Swing, but I’ll be coming back for Indianapolis. I just want

(7.320/180.69 to 7.363/181.47). “Something worked early, not just at the end for me. I just want to get a handle on it. I’m really pleased overall with the weekend, but finals and a win would have been sweet. We were excited.” Berry had reached the semifinals with a tremendous hole shot (.026 second) at the start, which enabled him to beat Matt Smith of King, N.C. (7.383/178.89 to 7.354181.08).

In the course of three days, Pedregon qualified No. 1 with a record-setting pass of 4.073 seconds at 307.37 mph. He went on to defeat Bob Tasca III from Cranston, R.I., for the Mile High title with a pass of 4.233 seconds, 295.46 mph to Tasca III’s 4.408/257.04 effort. In winning for the 33rd time in his career, Pedregon defeated Todd Simpson of Ponder, Texas (4.188/295.46 to 4.376/206.70) to open his run, Ron Capps of Carlsbad, Calif. (4.178/297.35 to

I’m grateful and happy that we were able to break a track record. Each win means as much as it does with the other 33. They just all mean a lot to me. Can we sweep the Western Swing? We’ll see. We’ve got the good start.” Tasca III opened his run to the final upsetting John Force of Yorba Linda, California (4.268296.76 to 4.313-288.33), followed by victories against Tim Wilkerson (4.237-303.03 to 4.307-274.22) and Robert Hight of Yorba Linda, California (4.221-302.89 to 4.434230.13).

Top fuel dragster

Like Funny Car, there were no Colorado drivers in Top Fuel, a classification won by Spencer Massey. Yet it was a step up in the right direction for the Brownsburg, Ind., resident. Massey, who was the runnerup in the Mile Highs last season, came through to beat Bob Vandergriff of Alpharetta, Ga., with a pass of 3.974 seconds, 309.27 mph to Vandergriff’s 4.029/304.67 effort. He had reached the final with his victory against teammate Shawn Langdon (3.966/309.98 to 3.975/309.20), his quarterfinal win over Mike Strasburg of Lehi, Utah (3.996/305.91 to 5.213/138.77), and his opening round win against Clay Millican of Drummonds, Tenn., (3.970/311.99 to 4.011/304.74).

Speedway creates good memories for racers Drivers share stories of happy times at Bandimere By Scott Stocker

Special to Colorado Community Media Johnny Gray, who competes in Funny Car, has a very recent moment that he said will last a long time in his memories of Bandimere Speedway. And, it involves Larry Crisp, John Bandimere’s son-in-law, who was injured last month in a track cleaning incident on the drag strip. “What stands out for me is being here at 9:50 p.m. and seeing Larry out there working,” said Gray, who drives a 2013 Charger and hails from Artesia, N.M. “And, all this after his accident this summer here at the track. You can race all over the country and never see a family member working this late to get things done and to have the facility in such top shape.” Gray qualified in the number 10 position with a speed of 304.74 mph and a :04.1-second pass up the track. As it turned out, it was not the best of days for Gray in the elimination rounds. He was defeated by Robert Hight of Yorba Linda, Calif., in the first round, with Hight making his winning pass at 4.213 seconds, 299 mph. “The Mile Highs are a special race for me and a special track,” Gray said. “It’s just one of the favorite tracks for all of us. I once held the track records here in both alcohol drag-

ting out of racing. I’ve driven five different classes here at Bandimere in my career. It’s

humble to race here and I will always have fond memories.” Top Fuel Dragster driver Brandon Bernstein has yet to win at Bandimere, but his father, Kenny, had some pretty good days on the side of the mountain. Dad came through to win Mile High titles in 1981, 1985 and 1987. Brandon has two finals at Bandimere and has garnered 20 wins through his youthful career. “When I was younger I went with dad to the races as soon as school was out,” said Bernstein, from Brownsburg, Ind. “Being at Bandimere was always a big for us and we always like to be ready for the Sunday final runs. This is such a great track and the Bandimere family has always been special to us.” Bernstein certainly had hopes to come on strong and was feeling better after coming off an injury. He struggled a bit and eventually qualified 13th (:04.108 seconds, 251.49 mph). “I’ve been feeling great,” Bernstein said prior to the Bandimere competition. “But there has been some numbness in my foot. I think I can get back into the points race and we’re ready to meet the challenge.” Bernstein opened his competition with a 3.949-second pass at 307.16 mph, upsetting No. 4 qualifier Khalid alBalooshi from Brownsburg. However, his day ended in the quarterfinals when he was defeated by Shawn Langdon, who also lives in Brownsburg (4.090/270.81 to 4.895/157.88).

Track worker says job is place to be Longtime sprint racer happy to be at Bandimere By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Frank Evancich spent three days last week armed with a hose and broom. Evancich, an Alameda High School graduate and Denver resident, worked the water box for the National Hot Rod Association’s Mopar Mile High Nationals, held July 19-21 at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison. His job was to make sure there was water on the track, so when cars rolled toward the starting line, they would get the tires wet to do burnouts. Then, he would grab a broom to help sweep away rocks. “I’ve been working this race for 25 years,” said Evancich. “I’d been racing sprint cars on Saturdays for 35 or 40 years. I love drag racing. With this job, it’s the idea of being out with everybody and watching the action. In between what we’re doing we glance every once in a while and watch a race.” An estimated 114,000 people watched Mile High Nationals events, which actually started July 18 with a Mopar block party in Golden. Fans are allowed to walk around the pit area and scrutinize crews as they work on the cars. Unlike most sports, there were seven divisions of amateur drivers competing on the same track and same venue as the professionals. Two

sportsman classes, Top Dragster and Top Sportsman, competed for national honors for the first time this summer at Bandimere. The monsoon rains that hit some areas of the state avoided Morrison and the Mile High National drag races were contested with good weather and near-capacity crowds. The Bandimere stop is the 14th race on the 2013 NHRA tour, with four remaining before the points are reset for the Countdown to the Championship, which is the NHRA’s version of the playoffs. Funny Car driver Cruz Pedregon and Steve Torrence, in a Top Fuel dragster, set track records in the qualifying rounds that were held during the first two days. Pedregon and Torrence were the No. 1 qualifiers in their respective classes going into the July 21 elimination rounds. Allen Johnson’s magic on the Thunder Mountain track near Morrison continued, and he was the top seed for the fourth straight year in Pro Stock, while Adam Arana was the No. 1 seed in Pro Stock Motorcycle. Johnson defeated Lakewood’s V. Gaines July 21 in the Bandimere finals for the second straight season, capturing his fourth Mile High Nationals championship in the past five years and the fifth of his career at the drag racing facility. The Greeneville, Tenn., native eliminated Mike Edwards, the last Pro Stock driver to win at Bandimere other than Johnson in the past five seasons, in the second round, and his 6.989-second

run at 196.87 miles per hour downed Gaines’ 7.015 at 196.67-mph effort in an all-Mopar Super Stock finals. “The Mopar Express Lane Dodge Avenger crew is the reason for all the success for the last seven years here,” said Johnson, who clinched a spot in the Countdown to the Championship. “They’re determined to win every year. We’re really thrilled to come out here with a win for Mopar on their 25th anniversary of this race. For them and the Bandimere family, having that marriage for 25 years, we really wanted to win it for that marriage. We pulled it off and we’re very happy.” Pederson knocked off Bob Tasca III to capture the Funny Car championship. It was his second win at Bandimere, coming 20 years after he was victorious in 1993. “I can remember winning in 1993 and winning this race means the same to win,” said Pedregon, who drove his 8,000-horsepower Toyota Camry to a 4.233 elapsed time at 295.46 mph in the final run. Spencer Massey beat Bob Vandergriff in the Top Fuel finals with an ET of 3.974 and 309.27 mph. He lost in the Mile High semifinals last year but won in 2011 at Bandimere. “We used all the data from last year and the year before,” said Massey. “I love it up here and the key to winning was to tune smart and drive smart.” Shawn Gann captured to Pro Stock Motorcycle title with a final-round triumph over Hector Arana Jr. for his first win in nine years.
