As Day 2 of Sciencepalooza rolled around Sept. 26 at Northridge Elementary School, representatives from such places as HawkQuest, The Butterfly Pavilion, the University of Colorado’s Science Discovery program and Agrium’s Seed Survivor Mobile all ventured to the school to entertain and educate fifth- and sixth-graders, while kindergartners and first- and second-graders headed to Miller Farms and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and third- and fourthgraders participated in hands-on classroom activities. The three-day program gives all students the chance to participate in each activity. Photos by Ryan Boldrey

In an effort to become more energyefficient and save money, the Highlands Ranch Community Association has teamed with the Colorado Energy Office as part of a statewide pilot program that could help the organization for years to come. Nine months after the state of Colorado approved a $25,000 grant for the HRCA to undergo an energy audit, the association’s board of directors voted 4-0 Sept. 17 to partner with the awardwinning McKinstry energy company to move forward with a program guaranteed to save the association $163,000 annually for 10 years. The savings don’t stop there. There is an estimated $22,000 in operating costs to be saved each year, plus $131,000 in year-one energy rebates from Xcel Energy and an immediate savings of $404,000 on replacing major worn-out equipment by going through McKinstry, which is designing tailored, energy-efficient equipment to meet the HRCA’s needs. HRCA CEO Jerry Flannery introduced the idea to the delegate body in January, outlining a plan that would allow the organization to avoid dipping into its reserve fund for major expenditures such as PoolPaks and boilers, but instead finance 10 years’ worth of savings to pay for all future fixes. Flannery previously worked with McKinstry when he was employed as city manager for Commerce City. Audit continues on Page 27

Education tax plan debated at Highlands Ranch library School-finance proposal includes two-tiered hike By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Opponents call it the biggest income tax increase of our time, and say it’s a disproportionately designed, untested proposal. Proponents say Amendment 66 exacts a minimal fee that in the long run will translate into an improved economic scenario for all. Four people, including the co-author of the amendment, argued on both sides of the issue during a Sept. 26 Highlands Ranch library forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters as the upcoming election nears. In Douglas County, the amendment will cost residents more in taxes than it returns in increased school funding, opponents say. The ballot question will ask voters to

approve a two-tiered income tax hike that would raise about $950 million for public school funding. Colorado’s current flat income tax of 4.63 percent would change to 5 percent for those earning $75,000 or less. Those above that mark would pay 5 percent on the first $75,000 and 5.9 percent on earnings above that. State Sen. Mike Johnston, who also led the charge for Colorado educator effectiveness law in 2012 — also known as Senate Bill 191 — said Amendment 66 will transform Colorado’s education funding. “Not just where those dollars go, but the results we get from those dollars,” he said during the forum. The money would fund full-day kindergarten, allow for schools to extend school days and/or calendar years, expand technology and education options, restore programs lost to budget cuts and change the funding formula to avert looming future financial snags. But opponent Steve Durham, a former Colorado senator, said there’s no proof the proposed changes will work as intended, adding that higher income taxes could deter productivity and ding the economy. “I’ve always come from the school that if you tax something, you’ll get a little less of it,” he said.

Steve Durham, Great Education Colorado director Liane Morrison and Jefferson County School Board member Laura Boggs talked about Amendment 66 in a Sept. 26 Highlands Ranch library forum. Photo by Jane Reuter Though he didn’t attend the Sept. 26 forum, school board member Kevin Larsen is an outspoken critic of the proposal. Because the incomes taxes proposed under Amendment 66 are tiered, the relatively af-

fluent residents of Douglas County will take a disproportionate hit, he said. “Ninety to $100 million of new taxes to School continues on Page 27

Storyteller helps others reach within He doesn’t remember quite what motivated him to offer a class to senior citizens on how to write your own life story. But then, for Garrett Ray, at 77 no youngster himself, life has been all about stories. The first page of his in-progress book starts this way: “Our stories begin as fragments in an attic trunk, nearly forgotten, then rediscovered, sometimes to our surprise. We pull out bits of fabric, examine the colors, move the scraps around, enjoy each one as a unique link to our past. Then we begin to place them side by side, discovering patterns we had not seen before, rearranging, looking again.” When you think about it, that’s who we are, isn’t it? A jumble of pieces steadily stitched into a narrative that somehow, one day, amazingly and unexpectedly, becomes a good story. You just have to see it. “Everybody … has stories to tell,” says Ray, in his soft and quick-paced voice, “if you can just get them to think that way.” The classes began in 2010 in the Highlands Ranch retirement complex he and his wife of 53 years moved to after a first career as a newspaper reporter and editor and a second one as a journalism professor. He calls this his third act. Offered once or twice a year for five hours over five weeks, the classes average 10 to 15 students. Even though he wrote weekly newspaper columns for more than 20 years, Ray uses Lois Daniel’s book, “How to Write Your Own Life Story,” to help teach his students. “A lot of them think if you’re going to write your life story, you’ve got to start with the first day,” Ray says. But you don’t. You look for the moments. “It might be a happy incident … or a house you lived in,” Ray says. “And that’s

where you ought to start, and guaranteed … you have enough stories to string together to make a pretty impressive package.” That’s what Dottie and John Talbott are doing. The couple, in their 80s, attended one of Ray’s classes last year. John, who can no longer type or write, is in a motorized wheelchair and speaks very softly. So he dictated his stories to Dottie, who typed them on the computer. “We figured out what things to talk about and what things to put in his memoir up to his sophomore year in college,” Dottie says. That’s when they met. “It was great fun,” she says, with a laugh. “I heard a lot of things I didn’t even know about him and we’ve been married for 63 years.” This winter, Dottie plans to write her part, which also will end at sophomore year in college. Then, she and John will compile the rest together. When the story is complete, one of their three daughters will add photographs and print the book. Their children, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, Dottie says, “will know who we are.” ••• Ray’s passion for writing started when he was 11 in Greeley, where he grew up. He, his younger brother and sister and a

couple of friends published a weekly newspaper called “The Neighborhood News” for three summers. They wrote about lost dogs and vacation trips and home improvements. He learned a bit about storytelling from his mother, a reporter and editor at The Greeley Tribune. His tenure as editor and publisher at The Littleton Independent from the 1960s to 1981 won him state and national acclaim — he was recently inducted into the Denver Press Club Hall of Fame. And he continued sharing his love for storytelling with students as a professor at Colorado State University until retiring in 2001. When you get it just right, writing is a gift, Ray says: “The human being … the eccentricities of people, the joys of people, the sadness of lives. … Almost anything will shape itself into a story if you can figure out how to start.” He smiles, blue eyes earnest behind his glasses, as he answers a question about the writing of his life story. Working on it, he says. “I’ve got to give myself a deadline — I only respond to deadlines, I think.” But he has a good start. A white utility binder encompasses 70 or so pages, some copies of the “Scratch Pad” columns he wrote for the newspaper, others written more recently. Each carries a simple title. There’s “The house on the corner.” “When we turn the corner by the house, I always hope someone will be standing outside so I can stop and say, ‘I grew up here!’ Here is where my parents planted the iris garden, and here, my grandmother grew roses, feeding them coffee grounds each evening.” And “Playing back the old tapes.” “We carry old tape recordings in our unconscious minds. …” And “Farm boys” and “Understand-

ing Dad” and “Thanksgiving at Grandma Ray’s.” And “In 2007 I became old.” “I have begun to notice the darkening beauty of our mountain ridge against the last light in the western sky. I wait for the dusk, grateful for the purity, the clarity, the nightly gift. “I dance with Bailey, overflowing with 18 months of toothy grins and joyful rhythms, to ‘Sleeping Beauty’ and ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb.’ “I cry easily, in sadness, in joy, in gratitude, in celebration. “In 2007, I became 71. I forgave myself. I began to wonder what happens next.” Ray calls his in-progress book “Partial Recall” because he doesn’t remember every detail. Just bits and pieces stand out. His life story, he says, is not cohesive. “This is not going to have the nice, smooth flow that a memoir would have. I don’t know if it will work or not. But it doesn’t make any difference if it works or not if I’m happy with it.” In the end, he hopes his grandchildren and their children, whoever reads his words, will think “it was worth their time.” Remember the first page, where Ray describes stories as scraps of fabric that we constantly rearrange and lay side-by-side into stories that matter? Here is the last line to that paragraph: “Before our eyes, a larger scene emerges, full of memories and color. Finally, our patchwork quilts reveal the stories of our lives.” We all have one. We just have to see it. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week. She can be reached at ahealey@ourcoloradonews.com or 303-5664110.

Former teacher changes sex-assault plea Ex-Rock Canyon coach agrees to 20-year term By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com A former Highlands Ranch middle school teacher and high school coach, charged last November in an alleged sexual assault of a former female student, has pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual exploitation, agreeing to serve 20 years in prison. Richard Johnson, 32, of Centennial, left the Douglas County School District in March 2012 after serving as both an eighth-grade teacher at Rocky Heights Middle School and as

Car chase ends in wreck

A familial vehicle chase led one car into the rear end of the other near Westridge Recreation Center at Foothills Canyon Boulevard and Highlands Ranch Parkway in the early afternoon hours of Sept. 19 in Highlands Ranch. A semi-domestic situation that involved a small child, the child’s mother and the child’s paternal grandfather ended with the mother being transported to the hospital for surgical procedures after her vehicle was struck from behind by the grandfather’s. According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, it was unclear whose vehicle the baby was in, but the sheriff’s office was recommending to the District Attorney’s Office that the grandfather be charged with first-degree assault, reckless driving, endangerment of a child and child abuse. Injuries to the child’s mother ap-

tation of a child and enticement of a child. According to Senior Deputy District Attorney Chris Gallo, who was prosecuting the case for the 18th Judicial District, all of the charges involved one victim. Johnson pleaded not guilty to all counts in June, but reached a plea agreement with the district attorney’s office prior to a motions hearing that had been scheduled for Sept. 27. As part of the agreement, Johnson also agreed to 20 years in the state’s Sex Offender Intensive Supervised Probation program after he is released from prison. Johnson will be officially sentenced Nov. 27 in Castle Rock.

Johnson was arrested and charged in November with 30 felony counts, including 10 counts Johnson each of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust and patterned sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, as well as five counts each of sexual exploi-

Social Security cards stolen

Sometime between Aug. 23 and Sept. 19, a Highlands Ranch woman’s and her son’s Social Security cards were stolen from the woman’s vehicle. She had placed the cards in her vehicle in order to open up a savings account in both of their names, but had not yet gotten around to going to the bank to open the account. In the time before she noticed the cards missing, the woman valetparked her vehicle at the airport, dropped the car off to get it cleaned and took it to the dealership for work. The sheriff’s office reminds people not to leave their cards where others can get to them for fear of potential identity theft.

Construction sites robbed

Three Parker construction sites filed theft reports with the Douglas

County Sheriff’s Office between the days of Sept. 16 and 18. A total of $840 worth of copper piping was removed from a future home on the 13700 block of Ashgrove Circle that is in the beginning phase of construction, making it the second reported robbery of copper piping on the street in as many weeks. Four rolls of home wrap and a power saw were also removed from a pair of construction sites in the 13800 block of Pastel Road.

‘No parking’ signs stolen

Three “no parking” signs were removed from their poles sometime between Sept. 12 and 14 near the intersection of Blackbird Way and Blackbird Circle in Highlands Ranch. The bolts and nuts were found in the grass sitting next to the respective poles. There are no suspects or leads at this time.

Rally seeks school-district changes Parents, teachers among Castle Rock protesters By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com About 200 outraged parents, teachers and community members rallied in front of the Douglas County School District’s administration building in Castle Rock on Sept. 27. Cold, damp weather did not dim their enthusiasm or ire, which was directed at the school board and district leadership. Some drivers passing by on Wilcox Street honked and waved, some stared and others ignored the waving, chanting, cheering crowd. “I’m disgusted, I’m furious and I’m appalled,” said Janica Winn, holding a sign reading, “4 Kids, not 4 Profit.” Winn’s daughter graduated from the district and her son is a high school student. “I don’t feel my son is getting the same education my daughter did,” she said, citing larger class sizes, decreased graduation requirements and diminished electives among her concerns. “(The district) won’t even give us the money we need for capital improvements,” she said. “Instead, they spend $50,000 to bring in Bill Bennett.” Bennett, the former U.S. Secretary of Education, spoke in Lone Tree Sept. 25 during an event financed by the school district’s nonprofit educational foundation. The rally, sparked by an accumulation of concerns, also was called to urge Douglas County residents to cast their votes for change on the board Nov. 5. With the exception of a handful of people, those gathered for the rally supported candidates Barbra Chase, Bill Hodges, Julie Keim and Ronda Scholting. All four attended the rally. They are running against the Republican slate of candidates: incumbents Doug Benevento and Meghann Silverthorn, along with Judi Reynolds and Jim Geddes. Chad Mathis, who supports the current board, stood on the opposite side of the street from most of the protesters, holding a sign to indicate he’s OK with recent policy changes and the board’s push for an ever-increasing array of education options. “The more options we have, the more likely we are to find that one that meets our child’s needs,” said Mathis, a father of two young children. Charcie Russell, a member of Great Choice Douglas County, holds a similar view. “We like the choice in education that this administration and school board are providing,” she said. Rebecca Waye and her 3-year-old son Tyson, bundled in

Parent Rebecca Waye and her son Tyson, 3, joined about 200 others during a Sept. 27 rally in Castle Rock. Photo by Jane Reuter a down coat, stood on the corner of Wilcox and Sixth Street, both waving signs. “We think it’s time for a change in the school board,” Waye said. “I think they’re not being up-front about decisions that are being made with our tax dollars, and they are not respectful of the parents.” Wendy Vogel, a parent who’s helped lead the charge against the current board, was smiling in spite of the cold. She’s optimistic the election will bring about the change in leadership most people at the rally believe is needed. “I feel good about it,” she said. “I think people are a lot more informed now than they were even two months ago.”

Thomas announces run for sheriff R Douglas County coroner makes it a three-way race By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com After months of speculation, Douglas County Coroner Lora Thomas has announced her 2014 run for sheriff. Thomas spent 26 years with the Colorado State Patrol, starting as a civilian dispatcher and working her way up to one of the five highest-ranking officials in the department. She would become the first female sheriff of Douglas County if elected. Using the slogan “It’s time for a new sheriff in town,” Thomas said she hopes to break up the “good ol’ boys’ regime which

has been running the county since before John Elway was a household name.” Thomas is the third person to announce a candidacy for Douglas County sheriff, and is running against two fellow Republicans: Castle Rock Police Cmdr. John Anderson and Douglas County Undersheriff Tony Spurlock. If Spurlock were to be elected, Thomas said, she doesn’t see how anything would change. Spurlock, she said, is considered “next in line” to take over for the term-limited Sheriff David Weaver, who was appointed to the job when Mike Acree stepped down in 2005. Acree had been part of longtime Sheriff Steve Zotos’ regime before being elected in 2002. Zotos served as sheriff from 19832003. “It appears to me that Tony is pretty well running the department anyway,” Thomas

said, pointing out that Spurlock is often the one representing the department at public events. She said numerous deputies have come up to her in full uniform, urging her to run, stating they don’t like what is going on. “When a regime is more concerned with power and control than responsibilities to the public, that’s a Thomas problem,” Thomas said. “We are going to find all those instances where power and control was more important than providing for the public’s safety.” Since being elected coroner in 2010, Thomas has trimmed the budget from $1.3 million to $900,000 and also uncovered the theft of weapons and drugs from a previ-

ously unsecured evidence room, leading to felony charges against previous DeputyCri Coroner Carter Lord. doc “When I ran for coroner, everyone said defe `don’t waste your time,’” she said. “I was repeatedly told that the office was well-run and that everybody who was any-By J body was anybody was supporting (Lord)jreut and that he was next in line. “This is the exact same situation here. Su I think they are all from the same good ol’Coun boy club and we have proven what wasradio going on in the coroner’s office and I haveRond made a huge improvement there. I’m justa cam looking for the opportunity to do the same Sc thing in the sheriff’s office, to have a fresh,ist, s new face come in and improve a depart-the o ment. If I was just looking for a job, I’d runcritic for coroner again.” Th For more information on Thomas’ cam-show paign, visit www.thomas2014.org. with Silve

NEWS IN A HURRY Baisley elected to GOP board

Former Douglas County Republican Chairman Mark Baisley was elected vice chairman of the Colorado Republican Party Sept. 21, after prior vice chairman Don Yetterberg resigned to begin his campaign against Democratic U.S. Congressman Ed Perlmutter. Baisley, a Roxborough resident who chaired the Douglas County Republican party from 2011-2013, unsuccessfully challenged GOP state chairman Ryan Call in March for the party’s top post after receiving numerous calls of support from around the state. During his run for chairman, Baisley promoted the importance of party unity and presented a detailed plan of how to help build the party’s infrastructure.

Radio show cut ignites candidate controversy Critics say audio clip doctored; Scholting defends edited product By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Supporters of the current Douglas County School Board and a conservative radio talk show host accuse candidate Ronda Scholting of doctoring an audio for a campaign ad. Scholting, a former broadcast journalist, said the edited clip is in context with the original conversation and called the criticism a distraction tactic. The clip was taken from KOA-AM talk show host Mike Rosen’s Sept. 13 interview with school board candidate Meghann Silverthorn, who is Scholting’s opponent

in the election. Rosen, who supports the board’s reform efforts, said candidates who support the continuation of those reforms face opposition, mostly from women. “These are nice, well-meaning, naive soccer moms who can’t distinguish between an individual teacher and the collective menace and intransigence of a teachers’ union with its political power,” Rosen said, talking for nearly two minutes about his view of what’s at stake in the election. Rosen then asked Silverthorn for her reaction to his summation. “I think to some extent you hit it on the head,” Silverthorn said. “It’s sort of like Congress. You like your individual teacher but you look at the union overall and think, oh my goodness. The leadership of the union was what we had an issue with. Individual teachers are

‘Individual teachers are hard workers, they’re honest and want to do right by our kids.’ Douglas County School Board member Meghann Silverthorn

hard workers, they’re honest and want to do right by our kids.” The video campaign ad that Scholting made from the show excludes most of that segment. It includes only Rosen saying, “You’re up against mostly women. Nice, wellmeaning, naive soccer moms,” followed by Silverthorn responding, “You hit Scholting it on the head.” “I cut it as most television journalists do,” Scholting said. “I kept the comments in context. (Silverthorn) did not disagree with what Mike Rosen had to say about soccer moms. “The point of my video is they (board members) don’t listen; they think people are uninformed. When you’re looking at a board that has discounted what parents who disagree with them have been saying for years, this is just another chapter in that book.” During her broadcast journalism career, Scholting said she never was accused of an inaccuracy. Silverthorn, meanwhile, said cutting the words “to some extent” from her quote created a misrepresentation.

“Basically, it seems Ronda picked and chose portions of the audio that supported a certain point she wanted to make about me,” Silverthorn said. “As I said on the show, there are people that what they care about is the level of education their children are receiving. Thoughts of the union or political things, it’s not on their radar.” DCSD’s collective bargaining agreement with the teachers union expired in 2012. Board members since have accused union leaders of disseminating inaccurate information about the district. “I don’t believe they’re acting in the best interest of our teachers,” Silverthorn said. “Then again, what the unions are doing is not the only thing going on right now. I think it is an issue, but it’s not the central issue.” Rosen’s broadcast angered parents who support change on the board. “I am dismayed at Ms. Silverthorn’s agreement with Rosen,” said Kathleen Boyer of Highlands Ranch. “Those soccer moms are her constituents, and she should be listening to them. The fact that she doesn’t realize how educated and well-informed we are only shows how out of touch she is with the parents of Douglas County.”

opinions / yours and ours

We love letters, but stay within lines In an era in which readers are more likely to post comments at the bottom of an online article or on a blog or on Facebook, we believe there is still a place for the good old-fashioned letter to the editor. Unlike online commenting, letters to the editor must go through something of a vetting process before being published. Largely, this is in order to maintain a measure of civility that, sadly, is often lacking online. On our opinion pages, we aim to provide a forum to stir community conversation. We appreciate diversity of thought and do not pick which letters run or don’t run based on our viewpoint. If you’re wondering why your letter wasn’t printed or are hoping to have one that is, read what follows. These do’s and don’ts will make the process easier for you and our editors. Do: • Your homework. In other words, check your facts. We have a small staff and can’t

our view do this for you. If you’re unsure of something, look it up. If you include a nugget of information that is not widely known, include where you found that fact. • Express your opinion. Tell us what you like or dislike. We particularly appreciate it when you comment on our articles and opinion pieces regarding local issues. But state, national and world issues are also on the table, if they are of relevance to our readers. • Keep it short. Our policy calls for letters of 300 words or fewer. Sure, we try to be a little flexible, and from time to time, you might see a letter a little longer but still in the ballpark. If you must go way over the limit, it won’t run, at least not as a letter to

letter to the editor Business model is real `rubbish’

In response to “Claims about schools are rubbish”: Michael Wallace claims that schools should be run like a business, and businesses will listen to customers. I’d like to remind Michael Wallace that this BOE didn’t listen to their customers when they dismissed the negative results in their survey in 2012. I can’t help but wonder if this is the same survey company that called my house last week and hung up when I responded negatively! This BOE proceeds to ignore their customers. I also want to remind Michael Wallace that many businesses did not/do not listen to customers. This is how so many businesses fail! But Michael is only looking at things with his free-market, drown-allgovernment-in-the-bathtub, rose-coloredglasses. I am a customer and I will not vote for any current BOE. I want them all out! Their new product is loaded with profiteers who see an opportunity to make money on the backs of my kids and my neighbors’ kids.

I have no problem with reform, and there is room for reform. My two oldest went to a charter school for nine years each and I will always defend charter schools. But restore my fifth-grader’s PE class! Restore my fourth-grader’s exposure to geography to more than two days’ coverage, restore the high expectations for graduation. Capitalists and free marketeers are by their very nature … profiteers, they want to make a profit … profit off our testing, profit off tuition, profit off our children’s education and their future. By their very nature, profiteers want profits first, customer service is not their priority. I hate to break it to you Michael, it’s the same in the business world. But I am most mad about the vouchers. I personally would not be able to afford the $15,000-$20,000 to send my child to a private school, voucher or no voucher of $4,575, that still leaves me with coming up with the remainder. And I have four children. Rose Duhaime Parker

Too good for our own good Just even saying that we are “too good” at something is kind of like saying we are having “too much fun,” or “we have too much money.” None of these statements makes a whole lot of sense, as I can’t remember a time when I actually had too much fun and I never found myself saying that there was no more room in my bank account because I simply had too much money. However, I can look at times when I had reached a certain level of expertise or accomplishment at a specific skill or craft and can probably say that I had become “too good” at that particular skill. It’s not being good, great, or extremely accomplished at something that is the problem, it’s when we become complacent or even maybe careless because we start to operate on autopilot. I have met many extremely talented and skilled individuals and teams who are wonderfully accomplished. They never cease to amaze me with their capabilities and productivity. But even some of these folks have gotten caught in the trap of complacency or carelessness, cutting corners and taking shortcuts because they have been doing their job or fulfilling their role for so many years they forget to pay attention to the details. When this happens they don’t produce their best work, or they set a poor example for someone who may be looking to learn from that person as a role model or mentor. Always be willing to learn even more. No matter how good we believe we are, regardless of how strong, fast, accomplished or experienced we believe ourselves to be, there is always someone better, smarter, stronger, faster, and more productive than we are. Always. So we need to be willing to develop an attitude of being a constant

student of the game, especially when it comes to those things that we are most passionate about. Another good idea is to imagine that we are teaching someone how to do the very same thing that we do. Even if we are alone performing a task or utilizing a skill, if we place ourselves in the role of the teacher, and remind ourselves the importance of safety, productivity, quality, and value we will certainly deliver a product or accomplish something we can truly be proud of. I love the quote by Jim Collins found in his book, “Good to Great”: “Good is the enemy of great.” When we settle for just being good at something we give up on our pursuit of achieving greatness or excellence. So let’s not settle for just being “too good” at something, let’s focus on making sure that we remain diligent and proud of all that we do on our way to being great. If you believe that you just might be too good for your own good at what you love to do the most, send me an email at gotonorton@gmail.com and tell me all about it. And as we grow each and every day, it really will be a better than good week.

Flies bring buzz-kill urge I have written a haiku for you today: I despise all flies McFly is OK, that’s it The rest are pests. Swat I hate flies. I am sure that I would feel the same way about jellyfish and cane toads, but I never see them in my neighborhood. I haven’t seen a single Gaboon viper either. Gaboon vipers have the largest venom yield of any venomous snake. No attempt was made to give flies a unique name, like butterflies and dragonflies. A fly is just a fly. It’s entry-level naming. “What does it do?” “It flies, that about it.” “We’ll call it a fly.” Sometimes you can’t even see them. They just buzz around the kitchen, and do one touch-and-go after another. Flies are completely useless. I guess lizards like them, and that’s better than nothing. Otherwise, they are no more than nuisances. Quite unnecessary, dark, flying specks. At least mosquitoes led to medical breakthroughs because of malaria. Flies? Nothing. “Some strains are immune to most insecticides.” There is fly fishing, and fly balls, and “a fly on the wall.” In the urban dictionary, “fly” means cool. But I am reaching. Flies are 100 percent irksome. There is one in the house right now. It’s in the kitchen. It may be a reincarnation. In fact, I am certain of it. I’m pretty sure it’s a former student of mine who once told me that she had a Mr. Smith doll that she put

School outreach comes with a price District says programs enhance internal, external connections By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Non-salary expenses for the Douglas County School District’s communications services more than quadrupled from the 2009-10 academic year to 2012-13, and the district’s total communications staff salaries are more than 76 percent higher than neighboring Cherry Creek School District’s. DCSD’s communications department non-salary expenses, which added up to just over $21,000 for the 2009-10 academic year, increased to more than $96,000 in 2012-13. Since July 1, DCSD’s communications department already has spent about $54,000 on non-salary expenses — more than half the amount it did in the entire previous year. Of the amount since July 1, $20,300 was paid to a marketing company — an amount almost equal to the department’s entire 2009-10 non-salary expenses. The marketing company, Strategic Advantage, helped with content-writing and story production for the district’s electronic and printed newsletters, according to DCSD public information officer Michelle Yi, one of six full-time employees in the communications department. District leaders say communication efforts throughout the community and within the district are greatly enhanced, with internal information serving as a resource for teachers and staff members. New features include a weekly radio

show, telephone town halls, a DCSD app, video programs on cable television and YouTube, enhanced internal and crisis communications, and a recently redesigned website and electronic parent newsletter. “Our key criteria is to make sure we’ve got avenues of communication for each of our stakeholder groups — parents, employees, students and our community,” DCSD internal communications officer Randy Barber told the school board during its August meeting. “As we’re reinventing American education in this district, information is a key to that process.” The department recently hired Yi as its new district public information officer — the third in as many years. Yi, who joined DCSD in June, has a career background in Republican politics. Most recently, she was communications director during Joe Coors’ unsuccessful 2012 run for Congress. Former spokespersons have shifted roles, but have not left DCSD. With the addition of Yi to the communications staff, DCSD is paying about $430,000 in salaries to its six-person department. By contrast, neighboring Cherry Creek School District employs four communications department staff members with salaries totaling about $244,000. Cherry Creek is the state’s fourth-largest school district with about 53,000 students; Douglas County is third with about 67,000 students. Community relations officer Cinamon Watson, also with a background in Republican campaigns, is the highest paid among the DCSD communications staff at $123,500. Barber, formerly DCSD’s spokesman, shifted within the department to internal communications and a post vacated by a

Past connections from politics resurface GOP campaigns are common thread for staff members, contractor, activist By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Two of the Douglas County School District’s top communication department employees have past Republican campaign ties with individuals connected to district matters. The department paid marketing and public affairs companies almost $64,000 in the last 15 months. About half that — nearly $29,000 — went to High Point Public Affairs, a Denver-based company that implemented DCSD’s telephone town halls. High Point’s president, Jake Zambrano, previously was a co-principal at Republican campaign consulting firm Phase Line Strategies with Cinamon Watson, who is now the school district’s community relations officer. Both worked at Phase Line in the mid-2000s. “I knew that (Zambrano) provided the service for telephone town halls,” Watson said. “We tried to procure it in-house and it wasn’t cost-effective.” The town halls have “been a great way for us to reach out to the community, to

people that are perhaps are too busy to attend meetings, and get them district news,” Watson added. Phase Line since has merged with marketing company R&R Partners. DCSD public information officer Michelle Yi also has ties to former Republican campaign acquaintances now involved with DCSD. In 2012, while Yi was Joe Coors’ communications director during his run for Congress, Dustin Zvonek served as his campaign manager. Zvonek is director of the Colorado chapter of Americans for Prosperity (AFP), sponsor of the current “It’s Working” pro-DCSD advertising campaign. Zvonek also was current board member Justin Williams’ campaign coordinator during the 2011 election. Yi acknowledged Zvonek is a personal friend, but said AFP’s ad campaign was a complete surprise to her. “I really haven’t talked to him about anything like that,” she said. Zambrano also is associate vice president for legislative affairs at EIS Solutions, a political advocacy firm where Zvonek worked until last year. AFP, which promotes limited government and free markets, was founded with support from billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch, known for their support of right-wing causes and advocacy groups.

Contract staff includes district officials’ relatives Communications funds go to CFO’s daughter, attorney’s spouse By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com In addition to its communications salaries, the Douglas County School District is paying at least $23,500 more to contracted department staff in 2013. That includes $12,000 to paid intern Allie Bloomfield, daughter of Chief Financial Officer Bonnie Betz. Bloomfield signed a five-month contract with the district July 15 at a rate of $2,400 a month, and is assigned to the communications department. previous employee, district officials said. Watson, who stepped into Barber’s role in 2012, leads the department, with most public interaction turned over to Yi earlier this year. Watson also is interim executive director of the Douglas County Educational Foundation, the district’s fundraising arm. Superintendent Elizabeth Fagen said DCSD is widely admired for its communications efforts. “They’ve done amazing with the amount of time and resources they’ve had,” she told the board in August. “We’ve had many visi-

In 2013, the department also spent $10,000 on a one-year-only position with a multimedia producer who created videos for DCSD’s school choice catalog. The project was funded by carryover money, DCSD spokeswoman Michelle Yi said. In August, the department also paid DCSD legal counsel Rob Ross’ wife about $1,500 for 45 hours of work — an hourly rate of $32.50. Linda Ross is working as a temporary employee in a variety of departments and has not worked in the communications office since August, according to Yi. DCSD policy allows the district to employ more than one member of an immediate family, but forbids employees from supervising or evaluating an immediate family member.

tors come and look at our communications relations department and say it’s the most comprehensive, innovative community relations department they’ve seen anywhere.” According to an email sent by Yi, “In 2011, the Community Relations Department reorganized and developed a comprehensive plan to meet a mission of communicating, educating, and informing our four stakeholder groups: students, parents, employees, and the community. The communications plan is a twopronged effort to reach both internal and external audiences.”

Education notable lauds school reforms Former Reagan Cabinet member acknowledges controversy, concerns By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The nation is watching Douglas County, former U.S. Secretary of Education Bill Bennett told an audience of about 250 people at the Lone Tree Arts Center on Sept. 25. Bennett’s 20-minute address was followed by a question-and-answer session during an event organized by the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce. It was paid for by the nonprofit Douglas County Educational Foundation through a consulting agreement with Bennett, a fact not disclosed until after the event. “Let me just say this — in agreement or not, whether you like all the pieces or not — here’s a school district that is trying to go from good to great,” Bennett said. “What will happen, we shall see. It’s intensely a matter of focus here in Douglas County, and increasingly the focus for people around

the country and indeed around the world.” Regardless of his paid consultant status, Bennett didn’t give unilateral support to the Douglas County School District’s controversial education reform efforts. He questions the school board’s decision to oppose the national Common Core Standards in favor of its own curriculum, which it considers superior. “I’m not sure whether I agree with this or not; I should say I’m pretty much a traditionalist when it comes to curriculum,” Bennett said. “But in this interestingly conservative district of Douglas County, the people who have decided to go after worldclass education have taken a pretty radical, pretty progressive, you might say liberal, endorsed set of proposals on curriculum. “Very reputable people have developed this theory. I still have some concerns about it.” He cited a study written by the American Enterprise Institute’s Frederick Hess and Max Eden titled, “The most interesting school district in America? Douglas County’s pursuit of suburban reform.” Hess also is consultant paid through DCEF. “There are a lot of us — left, right and center — who believe this is the most in-

Photo by Jane Reuter teresting set of reforms in the country, and that this is a laboratory worth watching,” Bennett said. Bennett said he saw firsthand some of the controversy surrounding those reforms during a meeting with about 60 DCSD teachers. There was “a lot of disagreement in the room, particularly about some of

the features of the compensation plan,” he said. “But there’s a sense of engagement I’ve rarely seen in a school district.” Controversy aside, Bennett said DCSD’s effort to revamp teachers’ compensation is admirable. He also credited DCSD for tackling the reforms at a “bargain basement price” of about $7,000 per student, significantly less than the $10,000 national average in perpupil spending. Bennett touched on education concerns nationwide, citing the United States’ 32nd-place math skills ranking. A total of 65 countries participated in the study of 2011 high school graduates. “This is an embarrassment and it makes a great deal of difference in the lives of these young people,” Bennett said. “If we could just pull ourselves up to the level of Canada, we would have a 20 percent higher gross domestic product for each worker over the next 80 years.” Bennett served as secretary of education under President Ronald Reagan, and as President George H.W. Bush’s director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy. He is co-founder of K12, a for-profit online education corporation that is publicly traded.

Schools’ nonprofit foundation pays high-profile speaker Bennett’s consultant role called ‘strategic relationship’ By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Former U.S. Secretary of Education Bill Bennett’s Sept. 25 address in Lone Tree was paid for as part of a five-figure consulting agreement through the Douglas County School District’s fundraising arm. Bennett spoke about American education and the reforms that Douglas County is attempting. Rick Hess, co-author of a paper titled “The Most Interesting School District in America?” — which Bennett referenced in his speech — also is a paid consultant with the Douglas County Educational Foundation. The school district touted the paper in its Sept. 18 electronic parents’ newsletter, Newsline, but did not indicate Hess received financial compensation. School board president John Carson said the foundation has paid Bennett about $50,000 since July for a variety of work, including the Lone Tree Arts Center speech;

it also has funded Hess’ compensation. The DCEF is the district’s nonprofit fundraising arm. No mention of the school district or the DCEF’s involvement in Bennett’s address was made during the lead-up to the event, or at the event. The South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce organized the address, but did not finance it. “We have raised and expended $50,000 so far on a strategic relationship with (Bennett),” Carson said during a Sept. 25 phone interview. “He’s been out here, doing a white paper, providing recommendations and other things.” The American Enterprise Institute’s Hess “is basically paid to be a consultant to the district and do research and provide strategic advice to us,” Carson said. Hess and his AEI colleague Max Eden cowrote the paper on Douglas County’s education reform efforts. The nonprofit AEI is a conservative, probusiness think tank “committed to expanding liberty, increasing individual opportunity and strengthening free enterprise,” according to its website. Critics have called it a leading member of the neoconservative

movement. Carson described the consultants’ DCEF funding as similar to DCSD’s legal fund in the voucher lawsuit. “Obviously the foundation is a means through which we raise funds for various functions of the district, but again, those are private dollars,” Carson said. “We feel it’s important to raise those additional items that are important to our district through private sources. “We have received private donations to support our work with a number of folks that I would say are education innovation thinkers. Third-party validation, work and suggestions are important to us.” The DCEF “was created in June of 1990 to develop private resources to enrich education within Douglas County schools for the fulfillment of lifelong learning experiences of our students, citizens and community,” according to its website. Former president of the DCEF Bob Kaser said payment for outside consultants is inconsistent with the organization’s original intent. “Our total focus was where the kids are, inside the classroom,” he said. “Worthy

grants for students, teachers and parents is how we considered dispersing funds. I think what the DCEF started out to be and was in the ‘90s and what it looks like today is dramatically different, and polarizing.” DCSD’s community relations officer Cinamon Watson was named interim director of the DCEF in 2012. In addition to Hess and Bennett, paid consultants include education experts Tony Wagner and Yong Zhao “and other folks,” Carson said. Carson acknowledged the timing of Bennett’s address — little more than a month before the high-stakes school board election — might appear curious to some. “We’ve been rolling along for quite a while on all of our innovations,” he said. “But we’re not going to stop moving forward just because there’s elections out there. We think it’s important to communicate with the community and make clear our course of action.” Jeff Holwell, director of the South Metro Chamber’s Economic Development Group, said the organization’s role in Bennett’s appearance “was attracting the community to participate in the event.”

Operation Shepherd checks on sex offenders DCSO partners with multiple agencies to do routine sweep By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Fifty law enforcement officers representing five different agencies, including the U.S. Marshals Service, hit the streets of Highlands Ranch this past week to check up on 62 of Douglas County’s 282 registered sex offenders. Directed by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, officers made contact with 48 of the 62 offenders they attempted to contact on Sept. 25, finding just one out of compliance. Earlier in September, officers swept through the southern part of the county, reaching 41 of 61 offenders in the Castle Rock area in one evening. “The most important thing about this is that law enforcement actually puts eyes on these people,” said DCSO Lt. Kevin Duffy. “This is a very transient population.” During the checks, which are required by state statute, officers take note of any significant changes including change in appearance, change of address, whether the offender is driving a new vehicle, or has changed an email address or phone number.

U.S. marshals perform a compliance check on a registered sex offender living on Wolfe Drive in Highlands Ranch. A total of 50 officers from multiple agencies worked together to perform checks at 71 homes in Highlands Ranch on Sept. 25. Photo by Ryan Boldrey “If they don’t live there anymore, we try to get the new address information and take a statement from the current resident,” said DSCO Capt. Jason Kennedy. “That person becomes our first witness and our criminal investigation begins immediately.” Offenders have just five days to report a change in address or they could be charged with a felony. When the agencies made their

sweep Sept. 11 in Castle Rock, they discovered one offender had moved to California and not reported it to Douglas County authorities or registered with the authorities in California. It’s for that exact type of situation that the U.S. Marshals Service works with local agencies to help keep track of offenders and intervene across jurisdictions when neces-

sary. Any changes with offenders are tracked and immediately updated in the county’s online sex offender tracking system, SOTAR, which — after being launched in Douglas County in 2006 — now shares its information with 36 police departments and 21 sheriffs’ offices along the Front Range and Western Slope. “The registered sex offender database is in my opinion almost critical,” Duffy said. “We have called upon it in the last nine months on probably eight or nine cases where the first thing out of everybody’s mouth is: `Where are the registered sex offenders in the area?’ ... In a case in Parker, in literally a half-hour, we had detectives on the doorsteps of 18 sex offenders while looking to find a kid we thought was abducted.” While any resident can do a basic search of offenders living in their area by visiting www.dcsheriff.net and clicking on the unified sex offender registry in the lower right column, officers can use the SOTAR database to delve even deeper, searching by everything from vehicle type to hair color to visible tattoos, height and weight. The site, which accounts for 42 percent of all offenders in the state, only shows those who are web eligible. Residents can obtain information on all others — those with just one misdemeanor on their record — by visiting their local law enforcement office.

Digital library debuts Open space, flexible furniture encourage student collaboration By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Something’s missing from the ThunderRidge High School library. Instead of the shelves of books that typically consume most of the space in a traditional library, ThunderRidge’s is open and airy, with a few shelves tucked along walls. The books aren’t gone, but in the new Digital Learning Center, they’re digitized. Now, said librarian Paula Busey, “I can have 1,000 kids hitting the same books at the same time.” That leaves room for students to gather and collaborate on projects. Bright green and soft blue chairs with wheels encourage that team effort, allowing students to form circles for group projects and move around the room easily. “The whole idea was to make it a more

collaborative place,” Busey said. “Collaborative work is the way the world is solving problems. It’s where so much creating comes from.” “This has changed into a flexible space,” Principal Carole Jennings said. “It replicates a lot of business environments.” The school held a grand opening of its new digital library Sept. 24. Digital libraries are not a new concept at the university level and collaborative spaces increasingly are common in corporate workplaces, but they’re uncommon at the high school level. ThunderRidge’s is the first in the school district, and its supporters hope it will serve as a model for others to follow. Chromebooks, iPads and laptop computers are available for student use or checkout. “Libraries forever were for research and study,” Jennings said. “Most people have one-to-one devices now, so we need to push students in a different direction. This is where they need to activate their minds. Our intention is to be the hub of every content area in our building.” Students are encouraged to interact

not just with one another and their teachers, but industry experts in their area of study. Using Skype is highly encouraged. “Now we take that next step and bring the real world into our school,” Jennings said. “The students get it,” said Katie Lindauer, a parent with the nonprofit ThunderRidge Education Partnership. “At any time, a group could form around a screen and Skype. With all these screens, you could pretty much form a classroom at any point.” Despite the emphasis on collaboration, plenty of space and options remain for individual study. “I think this is a good improvement,” said junior Michael North, a regular visitor to the library. “It turned from just computers to a lounge where people can go work on a project or just any sort of homework.” The library is planned as a phased remodeling with conference rooms scheduled for the future. The partnership has raised money from parent and community donations for the first phase, and continues to accept contributions toward future improvements.

Duesberry retrospective opens at museum Painter prefers working outdoors By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Prolific painter Joellyn Duesberry, a Greenwood Village resident, opens a retrospective exhibit of her oil paintings Oct. 5 at the Loveland Museum/Gallery, where it will remain until January 12, 2014. A variety of events, classes and public programs will accompany the exhibition. Duesberry’s website artist statement speaks of her preference for painting “en plein

air,” outdoors, when weather permits. She has created an oversized easel structure that can secure her large canvases in the windy and adverse conditions she sometimes experiences, especially in the west. In bad weather, she sometimes makes monoprints from her paintings and may tear them to create collages. “From my first landscape painting, I became a part of the landscape, with a good animal understanding of it while within it,” she said. Paintings in the exhibit range from small canvases to massive triptychs and represent her work from the 1980s to today. Her distinctive style presents strong, swooping,

Primarily self-taught, she began her painting career in New York City, but in 1986, she got a National Endowment for the Arts grant to paint for a

month with well-known California abstract artist Richard Diebenkorn. After that, she felt compelled to move to Colorado for its light and dark contrasts and landscapes. She has offered workshops, on her Greenwood Village farm and elsewhere, called “Abstraction Masquerading as Landscape,” which would suggest that the Diebenkorn experience remains part of her inner makeup, after years of painting all over the world. She will make three appearances at the Loveland Museum/Gallery: a membersonly preview on Oct. 3, an artist demonstration at 2 p.m. Nov. 2 and a gallery talk at 5:30 p.m. January 12.

I have the deepest respect for Denver restaurant owner and super chef Jennifer Jasinski (Rioja, Bistro Vendome, Euclid Hall) for her stellar performance in Bravo’s “Top Chef Masters,” which ended sadly not in her favor on Sept. 25. In losing, as part of the final three, she was nothing but gracious, of course. Here’s what James Oseland, editor-in-chief of Saveur magazine, had to say about the end results: “I thought I had a handle on Jennifer’s excellence as a cook, and then during the finale meal, she served us her paella gnocchi. My God, it was the single best dish I ate all season — so perfectly balanced, so beautifully executed, so lovely to look at. Unfortunately, for her chances at winning the season, her other three courses — while very, very good — didn’t come anywhere near the glory of that dish. Still, if we’re handing out prizes for individual plates of food, this one is the season five gold-medal winner.” Not to be overlooked was her remarkable job of snaring the most money for her charity: $35,000 for Work Options for Women, a Denver nonprofit that teaches food service skills to women in poverty. “I have no regrets at all about this experience,” Jasinski said after being defeated by chef Douglas Keane. “Top Chef Masters” win or lose aside, Sept. 25 was still a good day for the Denver chef. Two of her restaurants, Rioja and Euclid Hall, were named among the Top 25 Best Restaurants in the October edition of 5280 magazine.

5th Annual Women in Leadership Conference Inspires Women

KWGN Anchorwoman Natalie Tysdal giving the keynote address at the 5th Annual Leadership Awards Luncheon.

On Friday, September 20th, the South Metro Denver Women in Leadership (WIL) hosted its fifth Annual Women’s Leadership Conference themed “WIL to Prosper.” This exciting and enlightening event took place at the Embassy Suites DTC and included free mammograms, 9 different morning and afternoon break-out sessions, the Annual Women’s Leadership Awards Luncheon, and a cocktail reception to end the day. The conference was a great experience for the 165 business women who attended. The early morning hour of 7:30 featured a delicious buffet breakfast as the gathering women listened as Chamber President & CEO John Brackney and current WIL Chair Gina Kaelin-Westcott of Extreme Relationship Management welcomed the ladies and gave insights regarding the day’s events. Several Chamber Investors took advantage of the opportunity to present their products and services at booths throughout the day. Kuni Honda on Arapahoe, Schomp Automotive, Arbonne International, Park Meadows, Silpada Jewelry, Take Shape for Life, Lovett Family Chiropractic and Wellness Center, University of Colorado Hospital

and the South Metro Denver Small Business Development Center were present with an enthusiastic audience. The 5th Annual Women’s Leadership Awards Luncheon began with a presentation by Heather Halpape, Public Affairs Manager for Safeway Denver, of a check for $3000 to Project C.U.R. E. Laurie Porter for Project C.U.R. E. spoke on the great work the organization does with getting much needed medical supplies set to developing countries. Outstanding women who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in their businesses and community were then honored. To rounds of applause Pamela Kelly of Park Meadows was christened Outstanding Leader of the Year Holly Mullins, Farmers Insurance Agent/Owner was named Emerging Business Leader of the Year, Bridget Lovett, Co-Owner of Lovett Family Chiropractic and Wellness Center gained Community Leader of the Year, Kristie Nelson, Realtor with Remax Alliance was the Inspirational Leader of the Year, and Leah Dirks, Vice President at 1st Bank was named Philanthropic Leader of the Year. KWGN anchor Natalie Tysdal was the keynote speaker for the luncheon. During her honest and sometimes emotional presentation, Natalie spoke on her decision to become a reporter in order to be sure that people were portrayed by the media with compassion and integrity. Her conflicts with being a woman in a male-dominated arena and her stance on what is appropriate to report and what is not were covered as well as her new entrepreneurial endeavor, EverWise Entertainment. The conference presented 9 seminars including three panel discussions. Semi-

nar topics were wide ranging and included Empowerment by Dynamic Leadership, The Power of Saying “No”, Making Connections, Maximizing Social Media, Mastering Your Influence and Credibility, Creating Culture, Time and Stress Management, Branding Yourself and Your Business and Strategic Thinking. Throughout the day, the University of Colorado’s “Pink Lifesaver” mobile mammogram bus was parked in front of the hotel, offering free breast screening to any conference participant who wished. Others took the chance to sit in and experience the new 2014 Honda CRV and Mini convertible presented by Kuni Honda on Arapahoe and Schomp Automotive. The day ended with a Networking Cocktail event in order to allow the attendees the opportunity to unwind and share their experiences among themselves. A variety of WIL supporters held drawings for items such as gift baskets, and evenings out on the town during the event. The day’s events were sponsored by Safeway, University of Colorado Hospital, Park Meadows, and Schomp Automotive. The Chamber’s Women In Leadership Group brings together women of different backgrounds: business leaders, activists, educators, and many others. They feature influential and inspirational businesswomen as speakers at many Chamber investor sites to share their career path, the challenges they have overcome and new ways to help businesses of all sizes to prosper through Collaboration, Empowerment and Transformation .

Huskies down Golden Eagles Mountain Vista falls to Douglas County, 10-7 By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com There were not many offensive highlights during the Continental League opener between Douglas County and Mountain Vista on Sept. 26 at Shea Stadium. It was a defensive struggle, and Douglas County’s Huskies prevailed with a 10-7 triumph over the Golden Eagles. “It wasn’t about the highlights, it was about the win,” said Douglas County senior linebacker Zach Barlow. “It felt great. I knew from last week the defense had to step up and bounce back. We did and we pulled it off. There’s nothing better than coming out with a W.” Douglas County, 4-1 overall, lost its first game of the season Sept. 20, when Rocky Mountain notched a 42-21 upset over a Huskies squad that was ranked fifth in the

state at the time. “Our defense, considering how we played against Rocky Mountain — which wasn’t very well — came out with an attitude and beat a pretty good team,” said Douglas County coach Jeff Ketron. “It wasn’t pretty if you like offense, but defensively I thought it was a masterpiece.” Barlow paced the Douglas County defensive effort with 10 tackles. The Huskies had six quarterback sacks, with Tomatea Bartlett credited with 2.5 sacks. Mountain Vista punted six times and turned the ball over on downs twice in the second half. Mountain Vista finished with 133 yards total offense while the Huskies managed to gain 237 yards. In the scoreless second half, the teams combined for 139 yards in total offense, with the Golden Eagles limited to just 28 yards. Douglas County scored on its first drive of the game, with Trey Smith scoring on a 54-yard run. It was a vintage sprint for Smith, the 6-foot-1 senior who has committed to play for Colorado State. Smith, who rushed for 133 yards on 21

carries, took a pitch, raced around the corner, cut back and outran Mountain Vista defenders into the end zone. “Hips, hips and gone, that looked pretty good,” said Ketron. Wyatt Bryan tacked on the extra-point kick after Smith’s scoring scamper, then Bryan kicked a 47-yard field goal on the Huskies’ next possession as Douglas County went ahead 10-0 with 30 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Mountain Vista, aided by two Douglas County penalties, drove 80 yards in 14 plays and cut the Huskies lead to 10-7 after Nick Schmalz scored on a 2-yard run. Schmalz’s TD and the extra point by Louie Sawaged with 6:44 to play in the second quarter were the last points scored in the game. “One mistake here and one breakdown here and we are staring at another defensive battle loss,” said Mountain Vista coach Ric Cash, who has watched his team lose its past two games by a total of four points. “It’s one of those things where time is going to help us, but as the season progresses

we are starting to run out of time. We’ve got to get it right. We’ll work on it. I’m proud of our boys on how hard they fight and how hard they play.” Tyler Spond was in on 13 tackles to spark the Mountain Vista defensive effort. Luke Nelson and Preston Troxel each were credited with 11 total tackles. The Golden Eagles had a couple chances to mount a second-half comeback. After recovering a bad pitch in the third quarter at the Huskies’ 39-yard line, Mountain Vista moved to a first down at the 25yard line but wound up turning the ball over on downs at the 25 as Barlow sparked the defensive stand with two tackles for losses. Mountain Vista had a first down at the Huskies’ 41-yard line with 1:48 to play in the game, but the Golden Eagles lost 13 yards on the next four plays. Golden Eagles quarterback Brock Rubley was thrown for losses three times and he tossed an incomplete pass. Football continues on Page 27

Seniors help fuel Jaguars’ softball surge Rock Canyon tops Legend to tie for league lead By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Class 5A regional state softball playoff action is scheduled to start Oct. 12 and Rock Canyon appears ready. The Jaguars lost three of their first five games this season, but moved into a firstplace Continental League tie with Legend after a 5-1 triumph over the Titans Sept. 28. Rock Canyon, 11-4 overall, and Legend, 12-4, are both 6-1 in the league with three regular-season games remaining. The Titans played Castle View Sept. 30 and Highlands Ranch Oct. 2, with the league finale against Regis Jesuit scheduled Oct. 5. Legend played Heritage Sept. 30 and Chaparral Oct. 1. The Titans meet Mountain Vista Oct. 4. “We are definitely peaking at the right

time,” said Rock Canyon senior pitcher Lauren Paige. “The Legend game was really needed for our confidence. We have to win out going forward into the playoffs.” Jaguars coach Debora Kortbawi notes the seven seniors on her team have been ringleaders to Rock Canyon’s late season surge. “I don’t ever think you can write these girls off, they won’t allow you to,” she said. “Our seniors stepped up and started bringing the intensity. “This senior class is just ridiculous. They’ve been through this for four years. They know what it takes to get to the Final Four. They said now is the time to bring up the intensity.” Rock Canyon has played its way into the Class 5A Final Four the past three seasons and appears to be playing well down the stretch again this year.

Ponderosa takes soccer win over ThunderRidge Mustang midfielder’s goals lead to 3-0 league victory By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Colton Carr racked up six points for Ponderosa, but he didn’t kick two field goals. Carr, the Mustangs’ senior midfielder who doubles as the placekicker for the football team, scored three second-half goals to lead Ponderosa to a 3-0 Continental League soccer victory over ThunderRidge Sept. 24 at Sports Authority Stadium. His three goals, worth six points in soccer statistics, were too much for ThunderRidge to overcome in a match in which it didn’t appear for a while that either team would score. Ponderosa had a few good scoring opportunities in the first half, but two shots sailed wide, and ThunderRidge keeper Andrew Lundberg made an excellent save on an attempt by Mustangs forward David Patterson. “The first half was pretty frustrating because I felt like we did really good and we had good chances,” said Carr. “I felt we should have been up at half. Coming out in the second half we had intensity and that was important.” Ponderosa coach Jim Engels had a productive talk with his team at half-

The Mustangs, 7-2 and 5-1 in the Class 5A Continental League, followed the ThunderRidge victory with a 4-0 conquest of Heritage Sept. 26. Carr had two goals and an assist against the Eagles, while Peterson and Cameron Knox had the other two goals. “I’ve been here 14 years at Ponderosa and this is the most talented team we’ve had,” said Engels. “They play well together. They are progressing but still have to be more consistent. We’re getting there slowly. “We got upset in the playoffs last year; our goal is to get in there and make a long run. Every one of our games in this league is tough. We are getting better. We need to work on a few things.” Carr, who has converted 17 extrapoint kicks and made a 36-yard field goal for the Ponderosa football team, has nine goals and two assists for 20 points in nine soccer games. “We’re playing really good and together with passes and quick touches,” Carr said. “We are playing some good 5A teams so we’ll have some good practice when we go into the playoffs in 4A.” ThunderRidge, 3-6 and 2-4 in league play, recovered from the Ponderosa loss and whipped Chaparral 4-1 on Sept. 26. Jacob Sloan, Colin McIllece, Kyle Henry and Erick Meza scored for the Grizzlies.

time. “We kind of go in spurts. We’re not super consistent and don’t play a full 80 minutes,” said Engels. “I felt like we should have been up two or three at half. I think if you play enough offense and press them enough you are going to score eventually. “We had those chances, one (versus) ones on the keeper, but we just didn’t finish them. The keeper made one good save and missed the other two. We talked a little at halftime and got Colton to get a little more active. Something worked because he got three goals.” Matt Goodrich, Lars Peterson and Patterson were credited with assists on Carr’s three goals. Carr spends about 20 minutes working with the Ponderosa special teams at football practice during a typical non-game day, and then goes to soccer practice. “I like both sports,” said Carr. “I just like playing, I like to compete. Your steps have to be right on for you to have a good kick in football. In soccer you can have any kind of steps you want. “I’ve had to block a little bit, but not really tackle anyone in a football game. I’ve had to push people off of me, get around them but I haven’t really got hit. I’ve been hit in practice but I haven’t hit someone yet.” Ponderosa’s soccer team is hoping to be a hit in the Class 4A soccer playoffs this season.

Running back Tanner Smith is lost for the season. Standout wide receiver Rocco Palumbo saw limited action against Douglas County because of an ankle injury, and running back Michael

Evans, who had run for 36 yards on four carries, left the game in the first quarter after twisting his ankle. “It makes it a struggle offensively and puts a lot of pressure on some kids that shouldn’t have that much pressure, shouldn’t have to bear that burden,” said Cash. “I know the offensive line feels like it’s all their fault and it’s not. It’s a team game.”

with one out in the fifth, but Paige induced two ground ball force-outs to end the Legend uprising. Legend had runners on first and second with nobody out in the sixth, but a po-up to third base and a comeback grounder to Paige that wound up as a double play because of a Titans base running blunder short-circuited another Titans’ scoring opportunity. “I have all the confidence in the world in my defense,” said Paige. “I just knew if I made them put the ball in play, the defense would make some spectacular plays and they did. “I have one of the best defenses in the entire state. I don’t have to worry about doing it by myself.” Grabbing the lead early against the Titans was a key to

the victory. “The one good thing about this team this year is they are very focused,” said Kortbawi. “They are very good with their communication. We had a good lead against Legend. We talked about getting the lead from the beginning. That gave us a little bit where we could focus on getting the outs and not focus on not letting the runners score.” Legend did score in the seventh after Karlee Arnold’s oneout triple. She scored on a fielder’s choice grounder by Brooke Doumer. Arnold and Robyn Leighton each had two hits for the Titans. Swartout, Paige, Stewartson and Zayne Blumberg collected two hits to lead Rock Canyon’s 11-hit attack against Legend pitcher Janelle Gardner.

will see an extensive menu of swatters. Sometimes all it takes is a rolled-up newspaper. My sixth-grade teacher in Fullerton, Calif., used to handcatch them in mid-air, and then gloat. I have never seen anything like it. Mr. Thomas was very impressive, at least when it came to flies. I don’t remember anything else about him or about the class. If you are having a bad day, the sight of a butterfly can improve it immediately. If you are having a bad day, the sight

— and sound — of a fly in your kitchen makes it worse. I am having a good day, but knowing that Esther is in the house is bothersome. Knowing she is downstairs, perhaps sitting on a crumb, is unacceptable. I have the business section rolled. Wish me luck. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

Following the almost-unanimous vote of approval by the delegate body — only district delegates Sharyn Landis and Elaine Brown voted against it — all but six districts fully supported funding the project by borrowing $1.5 million from the Open Space Conservation Area fund as well as using $600,000 out of the reserve fund. The money in the reserve fund was being saved for major repairs in 2013 already, while the delegate body discussed the potential contract with McKinstry and McKinstry simultaneously conducted its nearly six-month energy audit, which entailed looking at all of the recreation center equipment in Highlands Ranch.

Douglas County will result from the passage of Amendment 66,” he said. In return, the county will get back from the state an estimated additional $50 million in annual school revenues. “Douglas County is a net giver,” Boggs said. “We send lots of tax dollars downtown and we don’t get all the tax dollars back. This exacerbates the problem.” Johnston sees the tax increase, which he said translates to an average of about $133 a year, differ-

Payments to the fund will cover interest that would have otherwise accrued. “Every penny of the OSCA fund will be spent on the backcountry,” assured HRCA board member Jeff Suntken, who also serves on the HRCA finance committee. “From an environmental standpoint we have been seen as a national leader for many years, and this definitely establishes us as a leader in sustainability,” said HRCA Operations and Programs Manager Ken Joseph. “There are very few community associations in the United States that have taken these kinds of steps.” The HRCA is the first nonprofit organization that has taken part in the Colorado Energy Office’s pilot program. The program has helped save more than $350 million in upgrade costs for public entities in Colorado over the past four years.

ently. “After this passes, the state of Colorado will have a lower combined tax rate than seven of the states around us (and) all 12 of our director competitor states,” he said. Great Education Colorado director Liane Morrison said the amendment will more equitably distribute education funds so children in poorer communities have opportunities similar to those in Douglas County. “You want (your children’s) colleagues to have an equal experience like you’re trying to get your kids,” she said. “We either put it in at this end, or the other end. If you put it in early, society reaps great benefit.”
