Library issue ignites debate Councilmember’s proposal for two sites rejected by most By Jane Reuter
email@example.com Lone Tree residents who filled the city council’s meeting room Oct. 15 expressed overwhelming support for the city’s plan to eventually convert the current library building into a community center. Only a handful endorsed Councilmember Kim Monson’s proposal to pursue the operation of two libraries. A library official who spoke before the public comment portion of the meeting said Douglas County Libraries couldn’t feasibly operate two branches in the city of 11,000 residents. RidgeGate has offered the library district a site in its development south of Lincoln Avenue for a new, larger facility. The current library at Yosemite Street and Lone Tree Parkway and the proposed site near the Super Target are 1.1 miles apart.
“We believe (operating two libraries in Lone Tree) would be impossible for us,” said library spokesman David Farnan, citing administrative and other costs. “We are a lean machine. The only way we’ve done that is finding smart, efficient ways to run libraries.” Construction of a new city library to replace the space now too constrained to adequately serve the area still is three to five years distant, and the land deal is not yet sealed. The city recently hosted a series of community meetings about its idea to buy the 10,000-square-foot library building and convert it into a community center with limited library services. On Oct. 10, the Lone Tree Voice published a guest commentary from Monson, in which she said the city could support two libraries. Monson’s commentary surprised and irked her fellow councilmembers. “The rest of the city council doesn’t believe two libraries is a practical solution,” Mayor Jim Gunning said. “Most of us have
been here long enough to know the little library on the corner is important to this community. A virtual library would still be able to serve many of the needs.” Several residents who spoke said the proposed site on the high-growth side of the city someday will be more central than the current one. “What I love about being a banker is no new taxes,” said Don Rogers, president of Lone Tree’s First Commercial Bank. “What I also love is free land. I don’t see too many cases where you have a win-win. We get a new library and we get to keep the old library for a community center. This is a win-win.” Dave Tanin is among those who likes the idea of two libraries, but said it appeared that was not under consideration. “It seems to me the board and council have pretty much made up their minds; community outreach after you’ve made up your minds doesn’t make much sense,” he said.

The first phase of the C-470 expansion project shifted into high gear this past week following the awarding of $100 million in RAMP funding on behalf of the Colorado Department of Transportation. The expansion project, which will add a managed toll express lane in each direction between Interstate 25 and Kipling Parkway, is the recipient of the largest amount of money among 44 statewide projects to receive Responsible Acceleration of Maintenance and Partnerships funds from CDOT this year. The funds, which were requested by Douglas County, will account for half the cost of the now-scaled-back project that is currently in the design phase. According to the county’s capital improvements projects manager, Art Griffith, the rest of the money will be funded by a combination of local, state and federal loans that will be paid back with toll revenue over the next 30 years. “They (CDOT) have a fairly aggressive schedule and would like to see all these projects completed and open to traffic by January 2018,” Griffith said. For the C-470 expansion project, he said, it is likely to be in the design phase for much of 2014 and construction will start in 2015. The project, in addition to new lanes, will include the addition of a continuous auxiliary lane from Santa Fe Drive to University Boulevard and also involve the replacement of some existing infrastructure. “The ultimate plan was to add two C-470 continues on Page 14
Lone Tree man’s class ring comes full circle Owner gets jewelry back nearly half-century after loss By Jane Reuter

Lone Tree’s Paul Squyer recently had a different kind of class reunion. Forty-nine years after losing his class ring in a Wisconsin lake, it is back on Squyer’s hand. A little less shiny than in 1964, but overall in good condition. The ring, a gift from his sister, was only a week old when Squyer took a swim in northwestern Wisconsin’s Perch Lake near his hometown of New Richmond. When the high school senior emerged from the lake, the ring was missing. “I looked in the water, but we’d been swimming there quite a while and I couldn’t find it,” Squyer said. Worse than losing the ring was telling his sister, he remembers. Soon after, Squyer joined the military and left Wisconsin, never to return. Forty-nine years later, on an early Oc-
tober day, scuba diver Ken Johnson’s metal detector alerted him to a find at the bottom of Perch Lake. The Wisconsin man routinely searches the lake for artifacts, and while it wasn’t the first ring he’d found, this was the first that offered clues to its past. The initials “NRHS” matched that of nearby New Richmond High School. The year “1964” and initials “P.S.” gave Johnson points from which to start his detective work. “I went to the high school and sat down with the yearbook,” Johnson said. “But nobody in (the class of) ’64 had those initials.” That’s because Squyer spent his senior year at a high school in a neighboring community. Unwilling to give up, Johnson kept searching and found Squyer’s name in the 1962 yearbook. His was the only name that matched the initials on the ring. “After finding the name in the ’62 book, I just did an Internet search,” Johnson said. “He came up on Facebook, and listed his hometown as New Richmond, Wis. That was the final clue.” Squyer said he initially thought John-
son’s phone call about the found ring was a joke. “I was really surprised,” he said. “I did call my sister and tell her. She said, ‘I guess, after 49 years, I won’t be mad at you anymore.’” Johnson said returning the ring to its original owner was well worth his time. “I thought it was kinda fun,” he said. “I could have taken it down to the guy who buys gold and sold it to him, I suppose. But usually these rings mean something to people.” Squyer plans to have the ring cleaned and resized to accommodate his now-larger hands. “I’ll have to wear it a few days even though I didn’t wear it much when I had first had it,” he said.

Aurora kids tickled pink by scholarship Lone Tree Arts Center grant helps bring youngsters to theater By Jane Reuter
firstname.lastname@example.org Late this month, 150 Aurora kindergarten students will attend a production of “Pinkalicious” at the Lone Tree Arts Center. For most, it will be their first taste of live theater. For many of the Village East Community Elementary students, the experience would be financially out of reach without a grant from the Lone Tree Arts Center Guild. The $1,000 donation covers the tickets and half the transportation costs for Village East’s Oct. 29 visit. “Pinkalicious” is the story of a girl who can’t stop eating pink cupcakes, and portrays what happens when she overindulges. “Our Lone Tree Arts Center Guild scholarship means that our kindergarten students will have the opportunity to see a live performance of one of their favorite stories,” said Village East kindergarten teacher Karyn Knoblauch, who believes the experience is more than entertain-
A scene from the theatrical production of “Pinkalicious,” which will be presented at the Lone Tree Arts Center later this month. Courtesy photo by Richard Termine ment. “They will develop a true sense of audience and understand the vocabulary and concepts of character and setting. These concepts will help them thrive
as readers and writers.” It’s the second such grant the guild has given in two years. Last year, Castle Rock’s South Ridge Elementary received a
similar scholarship. “Not every child in Douglas County is rich,” said guild president elect Gayle Spelts. While the grants ideally benefit Douglas County students, Spelts said it’s not exclusive to local students. Village East Elementary asked about the prospect of financial help for its students, and its students met the criteria. About 50 percent of Village East’s students are not native English speakers; 76 percent are non-Caucasian and 67 percent qualify for free or reduced lunches. “We work to find schools that may not have the time, opportunity or money to see live programs,” said Spelts. “My personal opinion is there’s too much emphasis on athletics in schools and not enough on the arts. My goal is to expose as many kids as we can to the arts. “When children see live entertainment, I believe it really instills a desire to see more. Not every child wants to be an actor, but actors need audiences. This helps develop an audience for a lifetime.” Money for the guild scholarships, which are available upon request, comes from member dues and fundraisers.

email@example.com Jamie LaRue, director of the Douglas County Libraries since 1990, has announced he will be leaving his position sometime in mid-January to pursue a schedule of worldwide traveling to give workshops on library innovations and other topics to libraries and possibly other organizations. LaRue says that two years ago he
tried giving a professional talk for pay and enjoyed it. This year, using vacation time built up over 23 years, he is giving many more — enjoying locations ranging from Moscow to Boston to LaRue Sydney, Australia. “I learn a lot, it pays well, I meet fascinating people, and I have a chance to deeply explore new issues,” he stated in an Oct. 16 blog post. “In Douglas County, I helped one library district achieve excellence.
What I’d really like to do next is help move MANY libraries in that direction. I got into this profession for love, and I’m still in love. This is the best time ever to be a librarian.” LaRue, a former president of the Colorado Library Association, has won various awards: Colorado Librarian of the Year in 1998; the Julie J. Boucher Award for Intellectual Freedom in 2000; the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce’s Business Person of the Year in 2003; and the National Council of Teachers of English/Support for the Learning and Teaching of English Intellectual Freedom Award in 2004.
School foundation’s tax status questioned Parent files IRS complaint with campaign allegation By Jane Reuter
firstname.lastname@example.org A Douglas County parent filed a complaint with the Internal Revenue Service Oct. 14 alleging improper activity by the Douglas County Educational Foundation. Susan Arnold contends that recent activities by the DCEF — the Douglas County School District’s fundraising arm — violate the organization’s nonprofit status. “I believe that this 501(c)(3) organization has been involved in political campaigning and deceptive and improper fundraising practices,” Arnold wrote in a letter accompanying the tax-exempt organization complaint. DCEF interim executive director Cinamon Watson, also the school district’s community relations officer, says the allegation is baseless. “This is absolutely frivolous and ridiculous,” she wrote in an emailed response. “The attacks on the Douglas County Educational Foundation are abysmal and a pathetic attempt to draw an outstanding organization into the political fray. There is not a
single fact or accusation that creates a legal liability for DCEF.” In her formal filing, Arnold alleges the foundation “is soliciting direct donations for activities that do not support its mission or objectives as a nonprofit organization. These funds are being used to support political activity.” Arnold’s complaint stems from the Douglas County School District’s late September acknowledgment that it used funds donated to the DCEF to pay consultants. Those consultants include former U.S. Secretary of Education Bill Bennett and the American Enterprise Institute’s Rick Hess, who supported the district’s current direction in papers both wrote and in Bennett’s Sept. 25 speech. Neither Bennett’s address nor Hess’ paper initially were identified as products of paid DCSD consultants. “In my opinion, (the foundation’s) actions constitute behavior aimed at distinguishing candidates for election,” Arnold said. “There is widespread concern in the district that funds have not been appropriately allocated as people expected.” Watson said the foundation is not worried about a potential IRS investi-
gation. “DCEF takes its obligations as a tax-exempt organization very seriously and we welcome any review that the Internal Revenue Service might choose to conduct — at anytime, anywhere,” Watson wrote. “We are confident that once the service has the true facts, it will quickly disregard this factually false and legally meritless claim made in the midst of a spirited election season.” Regardless of the ruling on her complaint, Arnold believes the foundation has damaged its reputation. “When all of those funds get funneled through the DCEF, you feel the trust has been violated in terms of how the foundation is managing themselves,” she said. A copy of Hess’ paper — “The Most Interesting School District in America?” — recently was delivered to many Douglas County residences with a letter of endorsement for the four board-supported candidates signed by state lawmakers Sen. Ted Harvey, Rep. Frank McNulty and Rep. Polly Lawrence. The letter notes it is paid for by the Douglas County Education Alliance, a nonprofit organization that has paid for TV and newspaper ads supporting DCSD.

What do you see as the three biggest challenges in Douglas County School District? DISTRICT B
Douglas Benevento (incumbent)
• Restore resources to our schools. The District’s fund balance has quadrupled to $83 million due to their inability to budget accurately. • Restore our high schools. Put kids back in school full time, reduce student/teacher ratios and increase the amount of instructional time to better prepare our students for college/careers. • Bring the public back to our public schools. Address plummeting parent satisfaction in Douglas County School District. Jim Geddes - No response -
DISTRICT D Julie A Keim • Loss of Academic Excellence Which is Directly Impacting Our Students • Lack of Accurate Budgeting and Financial Reporting, Resulting in Insuﬃcient Funds Passed Down To the Schools Educating Our Students • Devaluation of Public Input and Educator Collaboration Resulting in Ineﬀective Implementation of Many Strategies
- No response Bill Hodges • Lack of Fiscal Transparency • Increased class sizes and decreased instructional time for students due to BOE/Administration using an economic model for cuts vs. what’s best for kids • Lowered graduation requirements and flat-lining of TCAP results
DISTRICT G Ronda Scholting • Loss of trust with community • Mismanagement of tax dollars • Academic performance Meghann Silverthorn (incumbent) • Ensuring that education evolves to remain relevant and engaging for today’s kids • Maintaining and expanding facilities to accommodate usage and growth • Balancing funding mandates and directives from the state with future classroom needs
Judi Reynolds • Unequal Funding • Local Control • High School Curriculum Awareness
If elected, how would you work on addressing these challenges as a school board member? DISTRICT B
Douglas Benevento (incumbent)
I will call for a financial audit to understand why DCSD is unable to budget accurately and return large operating surpluses to our schools. I will initiate staﬀ, parent and community surveys immediately to understand the feedback from the community in which I represent. Limit the amount of meeting time behind closed doors and increase the amount time the Board meets in public. Jim Geddes - No response -
Focus tax dollars back into the classroom Fiscal transparency Stop so much BOE business being conducted behind closed doors via executive sessions Rebuild trust between the BOE and our communities by encouraging their input The BOE should hire outside legal counsel vs. using an attorney hired by the Superintendent in an eﬀort to avoid any conflict of interest
Julie A Keim
I will work with school leaders to assess needs, critically analyze fund balances, and identify parameters for the use of Board-designated reserves as necessary. I will work to give principals suﬃcient funding in their SBB to make independent decisions for their students and schools. I will work to develop and implement a meaningful assessment tool and merit-based pay structure that allows teachers to be eﬀective leaders in their classrooms without unnecessary paperwork that keeps them from engaging with students. Judi Reynolds Unequal Funding- The current funding formula from the state and the amendment 66 proposal place Douglas county children at a fiscal disadvantage. I will continue to voice my concerns at the state level and testify against any proposal that impacts funding of the students, teachers, staﬀ, and schools of the Douglas County School District.

Local Control - The state has created several new laws that school districts are required to abide by, even if they were created to solve a problem the DCSD does not have. Recently the state adopted House Bill 12-1238: The Colorado READ Act. The READ Act imposes new assessments on DCSD students, even though they have some of the highest reading scores in the metro area. Please visit strongschoolscoalition.org/election-2013/ for complete response.
1) Loss of trust: Currently, 49% of Douglas County School Board meetings are held in secret, more than any other district in the state of Colorado. The public’s business, as carried out by a democratically elected body, should be conducted in the open. It’s nearly impossible to have checks and balances and trust within an institution that does so much of its business behind closed doors. The secret meetings have to stop. 2) Mismanagement of tax dollars: As the number of students has increased, the District has decreased the number of teachers, but increased the administrative staﬀ. The first step toward to fiscal sanity is to stop hiring administrators and paying them huge bonuses and salaries and instead focus that money back into the classroom. Please visit strongschoolscoalition.org/election-2013/ for complete response. Meghann Silverthorn (incumbent) CVHS’s Modern Learners panel was a great example of how schools are addressing the need for educational evolution. Teachers lead, while district staﬀ and even kids assist. Facilities are an ongoing challenge for a growing district. Prudent use and investment of existing monies is already in place. Future bond dollars or other financial instruments will be needed to build facilities. DCSD’s share of the state retirement system, PERA, will grow over the next decade. Strong financial management, as in DCSD FY13 allocations of reserve for PERA, is needed to avoid having to shift costs to employees or impacting classrooms.

Campaign funds tell sharply different stories Candidates backing current board get little local financial support By Jane Reuter
email@example.com Two wealthy school-choice advocates from outside Douglas County have provided almost all the campaign contributions for the four school-board candidates supporting the direction of the current board. Oilman Alex Cranberg, of Austin, Texas, and investment fund president Ralph Nagel, of Denver, have donated about 90 percent of the campaign dollars collected by current board supporters Doug Benevento, Jim Geddes, Judi Reynolds and Meghann Silverthorn. Each of the four candidates got a combined $35,000 from Cranberg and Nagel. Those large, non-local donations are among the stark contrasts in the schoolboard race revealed by the Colorado Secretary of State’s Oct. 15 campaign-finance reports. In all, the four candidates who support the current board’s policies have raised about $157,000, nearly four times

as much as the opposing slate’s accumulated $42,500. Most of the donations to opposition candidates Barbra Chase, Bill Hodges, Julie Keim and Ronda Scholting — who support a change in the current board’s direction — are in small increments of $50 or less. The vast majority of those identified contributions are from Douglas County residents. Chase, Hodges, Keim and Scholting received a combined 556 individual donations, dwarfing the 84 total checks written to the pro-board candidates. Pro-board candidates also received a total of $12,000 from three other sources — current board member Craig Richardson, Colorado Christian University president William Armstrong and Carrie

Notable donations to the opposing slate include $500 each from Taxpayers for Public Education president Cindy Barnard, a plaintiff in the Douglas County voucher lawsuit. Former Douglas County Schools Superintendent Jim Christensen donated $500 to Hodges. Scholting, with $15,527 in campaign contributions, so far has received the most financial support of the four opposition candidates. The numbers reflect the Colorado Secretary of State’s first campaign-finance reporting period, showing funds raised through early October.

Amendment 66 is no easy sell Tax hike for schools generates opposition By Sandra Fish I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS
Teachers unions and several wealthy Coloradans are spending millions to convince voters to agree to almost $1 billion annually in higher income taxes devoted to public schools. But they face an uphill battle with an electorate that rarely agrees to increase taxes. And opponents of the measure say they’d like to spend at least $1 million in the fight, though the sources of that money likely won’t be revealed. Amendment 66 would raise the state income tax rate from 4.63 percent to 5 percent on the first $75,000 of taxable income and to 5.9 percent on taxable income beyond $75,000. It would be the first tiered income tax since a single tax rate was adopted in 1988. I-News Network at Rocky Mountain PBS and Maplight are teaming up on VotersEdge.org/Colorado, a website offering details about the proposal’s pros and cons, its funding and daily updates on news stories. The site also offers information on Proposition AA, which would place taxes on retail marijuana sales statewide. Amendment 66 would raise about $950 million a year in the first year and about $1 billion after that. And it would require that 43 percent of the state’s general fund go to pre-K-12 public schools. The initiative would fund a revamped school finance formula that would give
more money to districts with higher proportions of at-risk and non-English speaking students, as well as increased funding for preschool and kindergarten students. It’s a more complex proposal than those in the past — including a 2011 effort that would have temporarily raised sales and income taxes for education, but lost with only 36 percent of the vote. “That was a temporary fix, and it didn’t have widespread initial support,” said Curtis Hubbard of the 2011 effort. Hubbard is a spokesman for Colorado Commits to Kids, the pro-Amendment 66 group that raised more than $7.7 million through Oct. 9.
Some have doubts
Despite promises that money will go to classrooms as specified by the Legislature’s Senate Bill 213, which revises the school finance formula but will not take effect if Amendment 66 doesn’t pass, not everyone is convinced. Norma Anderson was in the state Legislature for 19 years, serving as both House and Senate majority leader. She was a key author of the 1994 school finance act, which would be replaced by Amendment 66, and she is still active in education efforts. A Republican, Anderson is one of the leaders of Coloradans for Real Education Reform, a primary opponent of the tax hike. “My concern on this, it’s a budget nightmare, and you’re tying up the general fund in the Constitution,” she said. “It’s too much money, and I’m not sure it’s going to the right places.” Hubbard counters that the bill changing the funding formula requires annual audits of spending, a

Photo by Crystal Anderson website to allow the public to compare how money is spent and a return-on-investment study every four years. Backed by Gov. John Hickenlooper, at least 25 school districts and several local chambers of commerce, Colorado Commits to Kids spent more than $1.4 million to collect signatures to put the issue on the ballot, and is now spending on television advertisements, fliers and other strategies to support the initiative. That compares with $7,605 for Kids Before Unions and $14,500 for Coloradans for Real Education Reform. The Independence Institute, a libertarian Denver think tank, donated $10,800 to the latter group. An Independence Institute program, Kids Are First, is running television ads against Amendment 66. As a nonprofit, the organization doesn’t have to file disclosures with the Colorado Secretary of State. The Kids Are First donation page says it has raised $668,025 of a $1 million goal. “I’d love to spend $1 million,” said Jon Caldara, president of the Indepen-
dence Institute, though he said some of the advertising is coming from the think tank’s general budget. “As a (nonprofit) organization, we don’t report to the secretary of state.”
Backers of Amendment 66 are disclosing their donors, though, revealing some of Colorado’s deep pockets in campaign finance. The bulk of that money comes from large donors. Among them: The National Education Association gave $2 million through Oct. 9. The Colorado Education Association gave $2 million. Pat Stryker, the medical technology heiress from Fort Collins, gave $825,000. The Gary Community Investment Co., operated by Sam Gary, founder of the Piton Foundation, gave $700,000. Education Reform Now, a national nonprofit, and Ben Walton, a Walmart heir, each gave $500,000. Other six-figure donors include David Merage, $254,314; Rose Community Foundation, $200,000;
School district’s ranking stirs contention Incumbent, challenger differ on drop from top tier By Jane Reuter
email@example.com School district leaders say there’s confusion surrounding a change in the Douglas County School District’s state rating — one that’s become a hot-button issue in the current school board campaign. DCSD lost its spot in the top tier of state school rankings during the 200910 academic year, dropping from “accredited with distinction” to its current “accredited.” Most Colorado school districts fall into the secondtier “accredited” category. Incumbent board member Meghann Silverthorn and other district leaders say DCSD is moving toward regaining the higher ranking, but cites a valuable service it’s providing disadvantaged students as a key factor in not yet doing so. Silverthorn’s opponent, Ronda Scholting, says the district’s excuses fall flat and that a plan to elevate the rating is needed. The district’s ranking fell in the wake of a state law changing the way accreditation is determined, making it tougher to obtain the highest rating.
Rankings are based on student test scores, academic growth of students, graduation rates, ACT scores, and some financial factors. Littleton, Lewis-Palmer and Academy are among the 19 Colorado districts ranked accredited with distinction. District leaders say its effort to regain the “distinction” ranking is affected by the comparatively lower test scores of the 3,000 students enrolled in the district’s Hope Online Learning Academy. The Hope Online students’ test scores were not tied to the accreditation process until 2010-11, a year after DCSD dropped from the state’s top tier. Hope Online offers K-12 virtual learning to students statewide, most of whom have limited educational options and do not live in Douglas County. Started in 2005 in the tiny eastern Colorado town of Vilas, it rapidly outgrew its small founding district and began operating as a DCSD charter school with the 2008-2009 school year. Initially, the students’ test scores were not calculated as part of DCSD’s state results. That changed in 2010-11, when Colorado Department of Education officials said state law required the district to include Hope Online’s
test results in its accreditation assessment. Less than half the Hope Online students were ranked “proficient” or “advanced” on the 2013 Transitional Colorado Assessment Program. But school officials say Hope Online students’ performance steadily has improved since joining DCSD. “If we wanted to, we could throw the online and alternative schools under the bus and say we’d rather concentrate on our accreditation,” said Silverthorn, who believes DCSD eventually will regain the “distinction” status. “But are we focusing on test scores or on helping kids? The district is providing a valuable service and we’re doing right by these kids, and I think we should keep doing that. “I’m proud of the way Hope Online has grown in the last few years.” Scholting doesn’t think Hope Online is an adequate reason for the lost rating, which she said may deter families from choosing DCSD. “My concern has been that the board seems to be more into talking about who’s to blame rather than worrying about getting it back,” she said. “They have never talked about solutions. Quit pointing fingers. If it is important to you as a district — which I think it should be — then figure out how to get it back.”
Stand for Children, $103,409; and Kaiser Permanente Financial Services Operations and Davita Total Renal Care at $100,000 each. Since voters approved the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights in 1992, they also must ratify any state or local tax increase, even if it’s to retain tax money that exceeds the TABOR financial formula. Of 16 funding proposals since 1993, voters have approved only five. One of those, Amendment 23 in 2000, didn’t increase taxes or fees — it simply required lawmakers to increase spending on K-12 schools. Two years ago, voters defeated an effort to raise income and sales taxes for five years to fund education. Supporters hope that emphasizing benefits for
individual school districts will sway voters this time around. Carol Hedges, executive director of the Colorado Fiscal Institute, is optimistic about the 2013 proposal. “I think Amendment 66 is the best opportunity we’ve had to actually pass a measure that will provide additional funding for school reform,” she said. “The recession really underscored for people how important education is to economic opportunity.” I-News is the public service journalism arm of Rocky Mountain PBS and works in collaboration with news media statewide.

opinions / yours and ours
Election bringing out the worst Like it or not, mudslinging and animosity come with the territory during gubernatorial, Congressional and presidential campaigns. Often, mayoral and state legislative races can also become mired in such muck. That can rarely be said about a school board contest. In Douglas County, however, this is one of those rare times. The name-calling and attack ads are enough to make the folks in Washington proud. To be sure, the stakes are high in the race for four seats on the Douglas County School Board. One slate of four candidates — two of whom are incumbents — seeks to continue the current board’s reforms, which include a voucher program and a pay-for-performance plan for teachers. The opposing
our view slate believes the high-achieving Douglas County School District wasn’t broken, so it doesn’t need to be fixed by far-reaching and disruptive reform efforts. That’s a quick and simplistic overview, of course. The issues and the rancor they’ve sparked are complex and can’t be fully explained in one editorial, much less one paragraph. The point is, this is a big election and the candidates have real, stark differences of opinion on how education
letters to the editor One library needed for city
I am a 14-year Lone Tree resident and do not agree with City Councilwoman Kim Monson’s position on a new Lone Tree Library. 1. Lone Tree is growing rapidly and we need a new larger library. We have many seniors living here as well as young families and soon there will be more seniors here. 2. To say there should be one for RidgeGate and keep the old one is divisive. We are ALL Lone Tree. This development has brought new residents and businesses to Lone Tree that pay taxes! 3. The Library District is prudent when it comes to finances and will build when they have the money. They are building libraries in Parker and Castle Pines as well and must use their monies wisely. Having two in Lone Tree is not financially prudent or wise. 4. Mayor Gunning spoke to our homeowners and stated the current library would become a multi-generational center with more meeting rooms that are desperately needed. Some library functions would also remain. I participate in the “Living and Aging Well in Lone Tree” series and know there would be senior volunteers to continue story time at this new facility. 5. While many people do walk to this library, many drive and parking is inadequate. Many cannot access this library for lack of parking and I am one of them. 6. The mayor also stated that a pedestrian bridge across Lincoln near Heidi’s is a distinct possibility. This would unite Lone Tree more. We are used to these bridges because of light rail and this one would get much use. There would be costs to the city but the benefits outweigh them. Gayle M. Spelts Lone Tree
Mad and hopeful about schools
I am passionate about my children’s education and want them to have the very best schools, teachers and leaders. The current Board of Education has a fund balance of $83 million, and yet, they have made budget cuts which increased class sizes, cut funding for teachers aides, music, PE and the arts. They implemented a high school schedule where teenagers have multiple “free hours” during the school day. Parents pay higher fees for buses, supplies and resources. Teachers do not feel respected or valued by the board and are leaving our district to go ANYWHERE else — and our children are suffering. And I am MAD. I am MAD because the quality of education is declining. I am MAD because I love teachers and want them to feel respected by their leadership. I am MAD because the Board is advocating taking public tax dollars and giving them away to private schools. I am MAD because outside interests are donating thousands of dollars for flashy ad campaigns, so they can profit from our kids. I am MAD because school boards should not be political battles; they should represent
the community in the best interests of children. I am also HOPEFUL. I am HOPEFUL that voters will recognize that we need change. I am HOPEFUL because Strong Schools Coalition and Douglas County Parents are educating people. I am HOPEFUL because I see neighbors with painted cars and rallies supporting teachers. I am HOPEFUL because I know many wonderful, dedicated teachers in our district. I am HOPEFUL because I love my neighborhood school and want to see it stay strong. I am HOPEFUL because we live in a great community. I’m HOPEFUL that we will elect Chase, Hodges, Keim and Scholting and bring positive change for Douglas County Schools. Aimee Lazarus Lone Tree
Money trail leads to dark places
I’m writing in support of the good work Jane Reuter has been doing covering the issues surrounding the current Douglas County School Board and the upcoming election. Many of her reports have been fine examples of investigative journalism — revealing that our upcoming election is anything but nonpartisan. Jane has done a great job bringing to light dark-moneyed, conservative interests that are trying to take our public schools away from us. Organizations with innocuous-sounding names that are harming our electoral process include: • Americans for Prosperity: Founded by David and Charles Koch, AFP has backed national Republican candidates and initiatives. • Douglas County Education Alliance: An organization channeling funds (of unknown origin) to media and online outlets, with former Castle Rock mayor Randy Reed as its titular head. • Douglas County Educational Foundation: Created to enrich education within our schools, DCEF seems to have veered from its charter by supporting the current school board with paid consultants such as Bill Bennett and Rick Hess. Randy Reed was a former trustee. Bennett is a conservative pundit and politician, who once served as Secretary of Education. Bennett is the founder of K12, the nation’s largest online education company. In recent years, K12 has increased profits while student performance has suffered — raising questions about whether the company is making money at the expense of academics. Hess is an education policy maven for the American Enterprise Institute, a leading member of the neoconservative advocacy community. Among the better known figures at AEI are former administration officials who were promoters of George W. Bush’s “war on terror” policies — including John Yoo (the “torture memo” author). These groups and individuals advo-
should be administered in the county. We appreciate the passion the county’s people — including candidates, parents and teachers — have shown over these issues. It is a testimony to how high of a regard they have for education. We struggle to think of anything more important. But differences of opinion don’t have to devolve into something resembling hatred. And at times, that’s what we’ve seen. Douglas County is affluent, its people highly educated. It is a place where people put a priority on family. Unfortunately, the commonalities shared by so many have meant so little, it seems. Instead, differences of opinion have swollen into divisiveness. That’s truly a sad thing for a county that has a burgeoning reputation among businesses and indi-
Not understanding is a many-splendored thing There are one or two things I don’t understand. One or two thousand. Tops on my list is why a baseball manger wears a wristwatch in the dugout. Baseball is one of the few sports that isn’t timed. Golf is another one — but you only have so much time to hit your shot. There are clocks all over baseball stadiums. So why would you wear a wristwatch? It must be vanity, or superstition. I don’t have a single superstition. I wish I did. I embrace the number 13. I met my beloved on the 13th. I walk under all of the ladders I can find, and step on every sidewalk crack in the neighborhood. There’s another thing I don’t understand. It’s something that is going on right now. The James Holmes trial may last eight months. It should last eight minutes. “For the first time, lawyers for James Holmes have admitted he killed 12 people and wounded dozens more at an Aurora movie theater last summer,” the Denver Post reported. I don’t understand why more people don’t know who Nikola Tesla was. I don’t understand why they put headlight decals on NASCAR cars. I don’t know why anyone would go to a fashion show. I don’t understand why athletes point to the sky after they get a hit. I don’t understand Pop Tarts or those scented, pine tree-shaped things you hang from your rearview mirror. How bad does it have to smell in your car before you hang a cardboard pine tree from the rearview mirror of a $20,000 car?

But there’s still time. Whomever you vote for, whoever is announced the winner after election results are released the night of Nov. 5, make civility a priority. There really is no doomsday scenario in this election, high as the stakes may be. This vote is about a matter of direction, of people having differences of opinion over how to run a school district.

Support pro-reform candidates
After interviewing every candidate that wished to be considered, the Douglas County Republican Party endorsed Dr. Jim Geddes, Judi Reynolds, Meghann Silverthorn and Doug Benevento for school board. I ask you to vote for them. These four individuals are committed to education reform, including market-based pay, pay for performance, and groundbreaking school choice. These reforms have been possible largely because the board let the union’s collective bargaining agreement expire so that they would be free to pursue what’s in the best interest of the parents, students, and taxpayers of Douglas County without being tied to a union contract that is only best for the union. Having taken on the union, it’s not surprising that the opposition has made things ugly and tried to divide our community. It’s the same unfortunate tactic President Obama used to win re-election. The candidates we endorsed believe that parents are best able to decide what’s best for their children and their education, that they should have many educational choices rather than settling for a one-sizefits-all approach, and believe that each school should be encouraged to develop its own strengths and programs so that parents can choose the right fit for their child. Please check out each of the candidates and verify whether they’re supporting the above record of success. The four candidates we’ve endorsed are supporting these exciting and positive reforms that are good for the parents, students, and taxpayers of Douglas County.

Get schools back on track
As a parent of two elementary students, I am disgusted to learn that the DCSD’s fundraising arm, DCEF, has spent $50,000 to fund speaking fees to former U.S. Secretary of Education Bill Bennett. DCEF has funded at least two other educational consultants, Tony Wagner and Yong Zhao.

I don’t understand the national anthem. “Bombs bursting in air” does not arouse me to patriotism. I think Black Friday is monstrous. I don’t know why anyone has a closet full of shoes. Why would anyone put plastic covers over their lampshades? I don’t understand why dry cleaning is called dry cleaning. It’s not. I don’t understand the Duggars, and I don’t want to. The word “appalling” fits them. And “arrogant.” “I love my cigar,” Groucho Marx said,
How have these consultant expenditures directly helped our students or teachers? Yet, school funding has been cut, our fund balance grows, and our schools have to fundraise every year in order to provide basics, such as art, music, and educational assistants (EAs), to our students. The schools that are not able to fundraise for these basics must do without them. How is this acceptable? The B.O.E. keeps touting that they are still getting great results from schools even though they keep trimming overall funding. Does the district know how much parents contribute each year so our schools won’t slip in performance? Six years ago, our school pledge drive raised about $18,000. Things are quite different now — our PTsO raises over $100,000 each year just to maintain programs that principals, parents and teachers feel are vital to our school’s success. Parents know that if we don’t raise these funds, these programs are cut for our kids. I now participate in numerous fundraisers, from pledge drives to the annual auction — spending way more than a few years ago. And, I am just one of several parents who must do this. Parents are not going to let the school slip by losing specials and education assistants. Parents must continue to open their checkbooks. So, when I hear about $50,000 going to a speaker out of DCEF funds, I wonder if we are on the same side; the side of the teachers, students, parents and taxpayers. We need to get DCSD back on track.

Wrong time for tax increase
Amendment 66 is a typical response to a “perceived” problem — throw more money at it and it will go away! Our son is now in this 11th year in Douglas County schools and has received an excellent education. In Colorado the median income has declined 4.3 percent from three years ago to $56,765 and nationally the average hours worked per week by all workers has declined to 34.4 hours. Amendment 66 is projected to cost Douglas County taxpayers from $90 to $100 million, yet only $52 million would go back to Douglas County School District. Where does the rest of the money go? Bureaucracy and administration? Now is not the time for a tax increase — especially when no good argument has been given that there is a problem and more money is needed. Graduation rates in DCSD have increased to 87.4 percent compared with 84.2 percent and 83.1 percent the past two years. Richard Pearson Parker
Challengers focus on small stuff
I had the opportunity to attend a Q&A with Board of Education candidates sponsored by the League of Women Voters Oct. 14 at Eastridge Recreation Center. Some observations. The difference in the materials offered by the candidates was remarkable. Scholting and Keim had professional-looking color slicks with well-posed photos. The other candidates had materials which appeared to be copied off Kinko’s cheapest copier. The incumbent slate of candidates talked about the big issues of parental choice, pay for performance, sound financial policies, putting children and parents ahead of unions, and local control. The challengers talked about small stuff: activity buses, a very slight reduction in classroom time, not getting a shower until the ninth grade (presumably baths were available before that), regaining an accreditation that does not make a bit of difference to student performance, and a minuscule increase in

Stand up and be heard
The school-board election is so important. The Douglas County School Board is embroiled in a confrontation with the union teachers and their parent sup-
porters. The accusations revolve around school reform, school choice, teacher accountability, teacher morale and a seemingly never-ending list of what should and should not be done to solve the deficiencies of public education. We are engaged in an era of unprecedented partisan politics between the Democrats and the Republicans. In a move never done before, the Douglas County Republican Party publicly declared that it had targeted and won the last school board election. The teachers’ union hopefully has never denied that it is aligned with the Democrats. The elephant in the room is that this local election is not local at all. It is partisan politics on a national level, with PAC money and outside interests obviously involved. It is unfortunate that the Denver Post has come out in favor of retaining the present school board’s innovative path. Post editors quote from a paper titled “The Most Interesting School District in America?” from the American Enterprise Institute. A significant number of leading members of the AEI were also aligned with the second Bush administration. They include Dick and Lynne Cheney, Newt Gingrich and John Bolton. Antonin Scalia was also a former member. The AEI represents only a very conservative Republican point of view. The question becomes when, in an era of extreme partisan politics, does school innovation cross over and become a disguised attack upon the public school system itself? Are union-member public schoolteachers really just lazy and greedy, interested only in protecting their jobs? Are teachers’ unions solely interested in preventing reform and maintaining the status quo? It is time for independents, disenfranchised centrist Republicans, and inactive Democrats to stand up and let their voices be heard. Voting, in even the smallest of elections today, has never been so important.

Douglas County Libraries is ready to help anyone who wants to participate in the annual NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) event that challenges people to write 50,000 words in November. There will be a NaNoWriMo kickoff party at 7 p.m. Oct. 29 at Philip S. Miller Library, 100 S. Wilcox St. in Castle Rock, for novelists taking up the challenge. The writers will receive information to get their creative energies focused. They

managed lanes in each direction from Wadsworth to I-25, and one managed lane in each direction from Wadsworth to Kipling, but this RAMP project will require us to scale back and do an interim solution,” Griffith said. “The interim solution is adding one lane in each direction from I-25 to the Platte Canyon exit. There’s just not enough money to do the whole
can then come to weekly Write Ins “to experience the warmth of human companionship again, get some feedback on the scene you can’t stop tweaking, and enjoy some snacks with people going through the same creative throes you’re going through,” according to a news release. Adults sign on to produce 50,000 words between 12:01 a.m. Nov. 1 and 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 30. Teens can opt for a lower word count. The goal is to get the words down on paper or your flash drive — the editing can come later. Author Sara Gruen’s “Water for Elephants” is just one of hundreds of books that started out as a NaNoWriMo project but went on to greater success as a published book.
kit and caboodle right now. The ultimate plan is still to get managed lanes all the way to Kipling.” The C-470 Corridor coalition — made up of representatives from a variety of adjacent municipalities — spent two years studying how to finance the new lanes, finally reaching a decision in February that managed toll express lanes would be the way to go. Other options discussed included the implementation of sales or property tax increases within a to-be-determined taxing district as well as tolling all the lanes.

Pat Perlinger, who lives in the unincorporated Acres Green neighborhood adjacent to Lone Tree, said he was disappointed the library hadn’t contacted anyone there about its plans. “That library does not belong to Lone Tree,” he said. “I agree there should be a big, new library, but there was no outreach to Acres Green. We’re probably the longest users (of the library).” Former city councilmember Sharon Van RamShorst criticized the guest commentary.

“I was extremely disappointed when I opened The Voice last week,” she said. “Going to the media is not the way to resolve differences of opinion in Lone Tree, and I’m sorry that it happened. I encourage you to proceed the way you have been proceeding.” Monson, who assumed Van Ramshorst’s vacant seat in 2012, said the comments were valuable. “It’s certainly been an interesting endeavor for me,” she said. “I believe it’s important people have their voice and that was the purpose of the guest commentary, to let people know. I want to say thank you for the process that is the American process.”

Deployed Seabees get help from home Quilting groups sending bed sheets, pillowcases By Chris Michlewicz
firstname.lastname@example.org Military personnel deployed overseas understand that they must go without the comforts of home for a while, but when Cathy Montowski found out her son didn’t have the basics for a good night’s sleep, she took action. Days after their son, Barron, arrived in Afghanistan in September with one of the largest deployments in the history of the United States Navy Construction Battalion, Montowski and her husband, Dennis, learned that his unit was completely without linens. The Navy Seabees, as they are known, lay down the infrastructure needed for troops to effectively travel to and from battle zones. It is the first time that Barron Montowski, 34, has been deployed to a highrisk area, and he and his fellow Seabees wear heavy armor in 112-degree heat. As if returning to barracks devoid of bed sheets and pillowcases isn’t bad enough, the Seabees have no laundry detergent. Montowski rallied her own troops — dozens of women who are members of local quilting clubs — to rectify the situation. She sent an open letter asking for
Parker residents Shirley Shannon, left, and Sandy Pearl were among the 30 people who participated in a “sew-in” to make sheets and pillowcases for Navy Seabees stationed in Afghanistan. Photo by Chris Michlewicz help, and within days, the Parker Piece Keepers Quilting Club and the Just Quilting Club had a time, date and location for a “sew-in.” Thirty of them worked for hours on end Oct. 19, cutting, ironing, sewing and assembling the linens in the aptly named “Inspiration” conference room at Parker Adventist Hospital. They also received
donations of laundry detergent, fabric softener and Febreze, as the Seabees have no way of washing the sleeping bags currently in use. Sandy Pearl, a member of the Parker Piece Keepers, was shocked when she learned of the conditions and immediately stepped in to offer her services. “It’s pretty unbelievable,” Pearl said. “I
heard it was a hurried deployment, but that’s just inexcusable.” That sentiment was echoed by Parker resident Debby McCloud, who didn’t hesitate to get involved. She said the combining of several skilled hands can make a difference. “It’s something we can do,” McCloud said. “It’s not much.” By the end of the day, the same women who worked their fingers to the bone at their sewing machines made 158 pillowcases and collected 117 new and gently used bed sheets, along with $142 to help defray the shipping costs. So, while the Seabees await orders to rebuild roads, bridges and schools around Afghanistan, they are not far from the minds of the social seamstresses of the Parker Piece Keepers and Just Quilting Club. The decision to help out wasn’t really a decision at all. “I did this to let them know we are doing what we can to make their lives a little more tolerable while they are in this horrible place,” Montowski said. “We are very grateful for our military and what they’ve done to protect us.” Although the main shipment was expected to be sent this week, the groups are still accepting donations of sheets and pillowcases. There are roughly 360 Seabees on the deployment. To get involved, send an email to email@example.com.

Baby, now that was suspenseful Media madness or a pregnant pause, perhaps? Was KOSI radio/9News personality Denise Plante pulling a prank on thousands of Facebook friends when she posted a picture of a pregnancy-testing stick she allegedly used on Oct. 16? She let the drama play out as she posted evolving pictures of the stick as it was turning positive or negative. She even snagged 9News medical expert Dr. John Torres to witness the gag. “Am I pregnant? We will soon find out, Dr. John Torres from @9News is in the house!” Plante posted. The plot thickened with pictures of the stick as it revealed her pregnancy status. And the “results?” “Turns out, I’m just a moody momma. Not pregos ... good news for (husband) Michael Plante.”

Imaginatively dressed little ghouls and goblins came out early to celebrate Halloween at South Suburban’s annual Spooktacular, held Oct. 18 at Goodson Recreation Center. The event, which drew nearly 600 partici-
pants, provided safe, supervised fun for children up to 11 years old. Among the activities at this year’s Halloween extravaganza: the Little Spook House, Trick or Treat Street, the Cookie Walk and Spooktoddler musical chairs.

Congrats to Lakewood High School for winning the “Good Morning America” contest to have Katy Perry perform a song at their high school! More than 2,000 Lakewood High students lip-synched to Perry’s hit song, “Roar,” as part of the school’s video entry. Perry announced the winner on “Good Morning America” Oct. 18. “For me Lakewood really embodied a whole school spirit. You saw so many different people coming together to do one shot,” Perry said Friday. “It was so interesting and so well done.” Amazingly, the video was shot in one take and has been viewed on Vimeo more than 564,000 times and earned 246,000 views on YouTube. 7News first reported the news. Perry will perform at Lakewood High — the home of the Tigers (how’s that for some cosmic karma!) — on Oct. 25 and will be broadcast on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Proceeds from the concert reportedly will go to the Colorado flood relief effort. Check out the video at http://vimeo. com/75058173.
I’ve been back to Strings once since owner Noel Cunningham died. Since his wife, Tammy, opted to close the place (running a restaurant is not her thing) the building on 17th Avenue and Humboldt had stood like a monument to a time when the restaurant was frequented by celebrities from stage and screen, along with loyal locals. When it was announced that there would be new life stirring in that space with the occupation of Humboldt Farm — Fish — Wine, a Rock Bottom founder Frank Day project, I, for one, was happy to hear of the rebirth. Humboldt opened recently under the leadership of Concept Restaurants. “From the instant our guests walk in and have that `wow moment’ to the time they leave, we want to make sure their experience here is spectacular and memorable,” said Concepts designer Dianna Lynn. “Whether you are on top of the Denver foodie scene or visiting Humboldt for the first time and looking for an amazing dining experience, we are a welcoming place for everyone.” Parker continues on Page 17

Paintings, drawings, sculptures at library Highlands Ranch artist shows work in ‘Reflections’ By Sonya Ellingboe
firstname.lastname@example.org When Reen Gottron travels, she carries watercolors and pencils in a special backpack. Or if she’s to have a bit more time, she may take a special case for oil paintings that holds the canvases separate. In summer, she enjoys the Marble/ marble symposiums in western Colorado. if you go She wants to share her art and has mount“Reflections,” art ed an exhibit called by Reen Gottron, is “Reflections” with 110 exhibited throughout paintings and drawthe Highlands Ranch ings and seven stone Library, 9292 Ridgesculptures at the Highline Blvd., Highlands lands Ranch Library Ranch. It will be disthrough Nov. 3. played during library A viewer can stage a hours through Nov. 3. sort of scavenger hunt: Look down the long rows of book stacks on both floors and there will probably be a painting, framed by cases at the row’s end. Some are near the study desks on the second floor and others were finding their way into the children’s room — starting with a quizzical-looking iguana that Gottron sketched in the Galapagos. Did it really smile for its por-
Artist Reen Gottron with “Apple Slices,” carved from Colorado Yule marble, exhibited at the Highlands Ranch Library through Nov. 3. Courtesy photo trait? She hopes to lure children and families upstairs to look at more art after they see a few images. While she and her husband have lived in Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico over the years, led by his career as a mining engineer, they have traveled the world. As a result, one sees images of Canyonlands, Maroon Bells, a Denver cityscape — and several views from the artist’s Highlands Ranch back yard (“Mount Evans from Highlands Ranch”).
And that viewer can take an armchair trip to Kauai; to the Galapagos; to Antarctica, including a penguin; to old New England, coastal New Zealand and closer to home: Buchart Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia, where she sketched a delicate larkspur. On the second floor are a few examples of her stone sculpting, which include the “Apple Slices” illustrated here. They are created from Yule marble, found at the town of Marble in Colorado’s beautiful Crystal River Valley.
Each year, Denver sculptor Madeline Weiner holds weeklong sculpture symposiums there, which draw artists from near and far — “from novices to some with world reputations,” Gottron said. On a table, Gottron exhibits a large “Teardrop” that begs to be stroked. Next to it, she has a series of pictures illustrating her process in discovering this sleek image in a block of stone. She carves in her home studio. Her early years were in Ohio, near Lake Erie, and her undergraduate art training was at Loretto Heights College in Denver with well-known sculptor Bill Joseph. She said she learned the basics: “excellent” courses in drawing, figure study, silversmithing, printmaking, sculpting and more … She wrote: “the exhibit is exhilarating for me in a very unexpected way. I darn near died in January of complications caused by the NORO virus — healthy one day, hospitalized the next for 21 days ….” Getting ready for the show meant sorting, housecleaning, soul searching: “opening portfolios, going through stacks. It became clear to me that some work had served its purpose and needed to be tossed …” Other pieces responded happily to a new mat and frame, ready for a second life. She talks of the nagging inner voice that drove her at 65, involving her helpful husband, Fritz, in framing and hauling art. The resulting “Reflections” is a collection of work she can feel proud of and happily share with her community.

Memories, expectations collide in play ‘From Door to Door’ title is related to Hebrew prayer book By Sonya Ellingboe
email@example.com As the play opens, a depressed Mary (Pamela Vanderpool) is visited by her daughter Deborah (Lisa Rosenhagen), who delivers a canvas and easel in an attempt to bring Mary out of her funk. She might recover a latent talent for art. The play’s title, “From Door to Door” is related to a phrase in a Hebrew prayer IF YOU GO book: “l’dor v dor,” from generation “From Door to Door” to generation, and plays through Nov. 10 focuses on Mary’s in the Pluss Theatre at memories of her the Mizel Arts and Culinteractions with ture Center at the Jewher mother, Besish Community Center, sie, and daughter, 350 S. Dahlia St., DenDebbie. ver. Performances: 7:30 In the backp.m. Saturdays, Oct. ground, grandma 26, Nov. 2, 9; 2 p.m. Bessie’s ghost hovSundays, Oct. 27, Nov. ers (Kathryn Gray) 3, 10. Tickets: $20-$25, and when Mary 303-316-6360, mactells her about the cjcc.org. painting, she repeats an earlier reaction: “There are no girl artists,” a position that kept Mary from attending art school/college, although she was an excellent student. “Dreams do not pay the rent or buy the food … The world is a dangerous place … The papa makes money, the mama buys food, the daughter helps the mama, Bernard goes to school.” “On the other side,” she declares, mar-
Pamela Vanderpool, Lisa Rosenhagen and Kathryn Gray play three generations of Jewish women in “Door to Door,” presented by Theatre Or at the Mizel Arts and Culture Center. Courtesy photo riages are arranged. This is in response to her granddaughter’s marriage announcement. She also has old-fashioned ideas about caring for a pregnant woman. Her pronouncements bring a laugh from the audience, but are part of a generational pattern that her daughter and granddaughter don’t accept well. “Now that I can do what I want to, I can’t remember what it was,” Mary sighs after years of complying with the wishes of others. The play covers the history of 65 years — from 1935 to 2000 — and is a story that applies to generations of women everywhere. Traditions are observed and forgotten, expectations are frustrated, new ways added to the family context. Director Richard Pegg, himself an im-
migrant from England, designed the set which, with its collection of doors and picture frames, suggests various residences and generations over the years. This family moved often for a better rent, perhaps with a deal for papa to help with maintenance. The title applies here too. Jewish playwright James Sherman, a Chicago writer and teacher, said in a talkback on Oct. 14 that he wrote the play for his mother and that Bessie and her Max were modeled after his European immigrant grandparents. He added that he had been in Seoul, South Korea, and a woman there said Bessie was just like her grandmother. The three actresses, Kathryn Gray, Pamela Vanderpool and Lisa Rosenhagen, talked about preparing for this play. Only
Rosenhagen is Jewish and she did not do a traditional Bat Mitzvah, she said. She did share memories and family customs with her fellow cast members and they had a Yiddish coach. (Rosenhagen’s daughter is going to Hebrew School and embracing her Jewish heritage.) Gray, who is an expert in dialects, had the older woman’s speech, mannerisms and rhythms perfected. The script was well-researched and written throughout. Note that scenes do not always occur in a linear manner, so the audience has to shift gears at times. “From Door to Door” is an insightful look at family life, well directed and acted. One needs to note the Mizel Arts and Culture Center’s schedule when planning a ticket buy.

Pearly gates await … and await Dark tale has lots of funny lines By Sonya Ellingboe
sellingboe@ourcolorado news.com While “Vigil” focuses on a dark story — a misanthropic man waiting for his aunt to die — the play, written by Canadian Morris Panych, is filled with funny lines and situations, enhanced by two terrific actors, Patty Mintz Figel (Grace) and Larry Hecht (Kemp). Cherry Creek Theatre presents its productions at the gorgeous ShaverRamsey Showroom, surrounded by exotic rugs — old and new — a setting used by designer Richard Pegg to enhance the look of each production. The company is re-
mounting a play these actors performed elsewhere seven years ago, also under the direction of versatile Billie McBride. Lights focus on a bedroom, upstairs in an older home. In the bed, centrally placed, is an elderly lady — with an amazingly expressive face and eyes.

Figel’s face registers fear and then puzzlement. “I spoke to a funeral director,” he says the next day as the frilly apron-clad Kemp delivers a tray with butterscotch pudding. “You don’t need recorded music.” Ongoing criticism of his aunt for not having his picture anywhere — “I sent you one when I had the mumps” — nor coming to visit him, is mingled with bitter memories of a conflicted childhood and adolescence — he had gender issues and was bullied by schoolmates. Now a bellicose middleaged man with no friends, he is at once nasty and funny. And Hecht, who is almost the only voice we hear throughout, portrays Kemp brilliantly. Time passes through Christmas, when she surprises him with a gift; New Year’s Eve with champagne; the arrival of spring on the street. Kemp looks out the

Avenue Theater play is all about sports Production is whirlwind tour of athletic history By Sonya Ellingboe
email@example.com “ASTN Sports Network,” it says on the backdrop, and underneath there are pennants and a trio of desks on the small Avenue Theater stage. It’s time for a performance of “Complete World of Sports (Abridged)” written by the group who first produced “Compleat Works of Shakespeare (Abridged)” some years ago, where the works of the Bard are dispatched in two hilarious hours. Enter Damon Guerrasio, Eric Mather and Steven J. Burge to assure you that they will talk about every sport ever played in less than two hours. (And some you may not have heard about.) There will be nine categories, played on seven continents — from then until now …
And they’re off in a cloud of dust for an evening of well-timed physical comedy and clever spins on network sportscasters and athletes. They alternate between announcing and playing sports themselves, changing costumes — and the subject — at lightning speed. When announcing, they have the rhythm and manner of the guys you hear broadcasting Sunday games. When they’re demonstrating how to play, it’s silly and great fun. “Stick and ball sports” are discussed; golf, ice hockey, tennis. And baseball — so boring it puts Mather to sleep, although he’s assured “there’s a lot going on you can’t see.” Our trio, directed by the skilled Bob Wells, makes a quick visit to Ancient Greece and the Simpsons and to the Roman Empire (archery, curling,) In A.D. 1604, Elizabethans were bearbaiting and Ophelia failed her swimming test. We visit Aborigines in Australia for boomerang throwing and Guerrasio
in South America with the invention of basketball — with a human head. In America, circa 1776, “they took the game of lacrosse as their own.” Bagpipes and Scottish golfers appear. Is golf a game or a sport? Answer: “They show it on ESPN.” This trio of skilled comics continued a high-energy, precisely timed routine that gets to the Olympics and a Parade of Nations, if you go which involved enlisting a few “The Complete game audience World of Sports” members.

Steak ’n Shakes to reopen next month Popular restaurants will be operated by corporate office By George Lurie
firstname.lastname@example.org It’s lunchtime and a steady stream of vehicles cruises slowly past Centennial’s shuttered Steak ’n Shake. “Do you know when they’re going to open back up?” one driver asks. “I can’t wait to get my hands on a Steakburger,” another man says while stopping to read signs posted in the restaurant’s front window. Clearly, Steak ’n Shake is a restaurant with a strong local following. But since September, Steakburger devotees have had to drive to Colorado Springs to get their itch scratched. That’s because a dispute between the local franchisee and the company’s corporate office led to the closure in September of Steak ’n Shakes in Centennial and Sheridan. But last week, the company announced its Centennial and Sheridan restaurants will reopen in late November. “The company is designing a marvelous grand reopening,” said Melissa Hirner, a public relations specialist working for the company who confirmed “Steak ’n Shake corporate” will directly manage the Centennial and Sheridan restaurants. “Steak ’n Shake’s goal is to serve highquality food at the same great value throughout the country,” Hirner said. The Steak ’n Shakes in Centennial and Sheridan have been in the headlines recently, shuttered the past two months and now tangled in lawsuits after the franchise owner ignored a corporate directive and charged higher prices for certain menu items. The two metro-area Steak ’n Shake franchises are owned by Kathryn and Larry Baerns and their son Christopher.
The Baernses opened Colorado’s first Steak ’n Shake in Centennial in 2011, investing a reported $4 million to secure a 20-year lease as well as the option to open as many as a dozen Denver-area franchises. But in September of this year, a judge ordered them to stop operating under the Steak ’n Shake banner. The reason: the ongoing disagreement over pricing. At one point, the dispute prompted Steak ’n Shake’s corporate office to cut off the computerized cash register system necessary to operate the Baernses’ franchises. This summer, a Denver judge stepped into the fray and granted the Baernses a temporary restraining order, forcing the company’s corporate office to bring the Centennial and Sheridan restaurants back online. But after the restraining order expired in early September, the corporate office once again withdrew its technical support and the Baerns family was forced to close their restaurants again. Last month, U.S. District Judge Raymond Moore ruled the Baernses could still operate restaurants in their two leased locations but the stores could no longer appear to be associated in any way with Steak ’n Shake. While the two parties remain embroiled in court proceedings, Steak ’n Shake’s franchisee agreements reportedly allow the company to assume franchise leases in certain situations. Although the Baernses’ lawyer did not respond to interview requests, in earlier media coverage of the dispute, the Baernses claimed to be losing money because of additional labor and supply costs the corporate office failed to disclose during initial contract negotiations. Steak ’n Shake officials have yet to comment on the lawsuits involving the Baerns family. Hirner said this week that the company senior vice president of marketing, Jim Flaniken, was “currently traveling interna-

Photo by George Lurie tionally and is unable to comment.” But in a media release issued last week, Flaniken stated: “We are delighted to bring an authentic Steak ’n Shake experience to the Centennial and Sheridan locations (and) are committed to providing a consistent experience across the country. No matter where Steak ’n Shake fans enjoy their meals, they can be assured they are receiving the highest quality Steakburgers and milkshakes.” The Centennial and Sheridan restaurants, which are located at 8271 S. Quebec
Street in Centennial and 3502 River Point Parkway in Sheridan, will operate 24 hours a day after reopening. The company is in the process of hiring as many as 140 new employees at both metro-area locations, and former employees can apply. Steak ’n Shake, owned by Indianapolisbased Bilgari Holdings, was founded in 1934. The company operates more than 500 restaurants, many located in the Midwest and South.

GALLERY OF GAMES
ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) A colleague might offer to open a door for you professionally. But before you walk through it, be sure this “favor” isn’t attached to an obligation you might find difficult to discharge. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) Your creativity, your persistence and your reliability could lead to a major career shift. Be sure to use that other Taurean trait, your practicality, when discussing what the job offers. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) A changing situation might require some adjustments you might not have been prepared to make. However, flexibility in this matter could be the best course to follow at this time. CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) You’re in a period of fluctuating moods, which is not unusual for the Moon Child. Your emotions stabilize by the 25th. Meanwhile, try to hold off making major decisions until then. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) That keen sense of perception helps you hunt down those minute details that others overlook. And, of course, your Leonine ego will accept the expected praise with good grace. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) Be careful not to be confrontational when raising a work-related issue. Better to make a request than a demand. And, of course, be prepared to back up your case with facts. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Your ego might be hurt when a colleague turns down your offer to help. But accept it as a rejection of your offer, not of you. A friend from the past could re-emerge by week’s end. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) A flow of positive energy turns a work project you didn’t want to do into something you actually love doing. Now, take that attitude into your social, intimate life -- and enjoy what follows. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Working hard to meet your professional goals is fine. But don’t neglect your private life, especially where it concerns your more cherished relationships. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) “Patience” remains the key word in dealing with an emotionally sensitive situation involving a close friend or family member. Help comes your way by week’s end. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) With new information coming in, it’s a good time to rethink some of your goals without taking suggestions from others, no matter how well-meaning they might be. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Making progress on your project is relatively easy in the early part of the week. A problem could arise midweek. But all goes swimmingly once it’s resolved. BORN THIS WEEK: Holding fast to your principles, no matter what, inspires others to follow your example. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Grizzlies romp past Wolverines ThunderRidge football coach still sees need for improvement By Jim Benton
email@example.com ThunderRidge plays rival Mountain Vista Oct. 25 in the Continental League regular-season finale. The Grizzlies improved to 7-1 on the season and 3-1 in the league with a 52-14 romp over Chaparral Oct. 17 at Shea Stadium, but ThunderRidge coach Joe Johnson stressed that his team needs to better itself as the state Class 5A playoffs approach. “There are a lot of things we can do better and execute better,” said Johnson. “We need to be more consistent defensively. We just kind of have bad series sometimes and things like that defensively. “We just can’t get complacent and we can’t think we don’t need to get better. The teams that get better are the teams that are going to win. If you are not getting better and somebody else is, you are getting worse. So we have to keep getting better and keep wanting to play. We have a lot of seniors who want to play as long as they can play.” Senior wide receiver Mark Hopper knows what ThunderRidge, a team that advanced to the semifinals last season, needs to do. “We just have to practice hard, keep focused and we can’t overlook one team,” advised Hopper. “We just have to keep practicing, that’s all we can do. We play Mountain Vista next, which is our biggest rival.”
ThunderRidge, the state’s fifthranked Class 5A team, played precise in defeating an injuryplagued Chaparral team that lost for the fifth time in eight games and dropped to 2-2 in league play. The Grizzlies broke a 7-7 firstperiod tie with 45 unanswered points, and the 40-point mercy rule with a running clock was started with 11:40 remaining in the fourth quarter. ThunderRidge scored on eight of 10 possessions, and one of those drives came when kneeling on the ball at the end of the game. The Grizzlies converted three turnovers into 21 points and finished with 435 yards total offense while limiting the Wolverines to 77 yards rushing and 168 total offense yards. It was a team effort as several players had standout games. Quarterback Brody Westmoreland completed 11 of 18 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown. He ran for 30 yards and another score. Steve Ray, who was suspended for the season’s first four games, rushed for three touchdowns and 112 yards. Fullback Matt Stanley added 39 yards rushing and a TD. Hopper caught six passes for 95 yards, kicked a 35-yard field goal and converted seven extrapoint kicks. Josh Brown rushed for 44 yards on three carries and caught three passes for 45 yards and a TD. Senior linebacker Tyler Seno had eight tackles and recovered two fumbles to pace the ThunderRidge defense. Michael Stanley, Matt’s brother, had two quarterback sacks. “Tyler is playing very well,” said Johnson. “He’s a very good athlete. We try not to be too onedimensional on offense. We have

Matt gives us a power inside look and he’s really good at that. Steve gives us a little more speed and movement outside. Brody can run and we’ve got guys that can catch it. “We didn’t have Brownie there for a few weeks. He dislocated his thumb. He’s somebody that I still don’t think we’ve seen what he
is capable of doing. He’s fast. He can hurt you. We’re going to try to use him more and be as balanced as we can.” Hopper echoed the comments of his coach. “We have many different players,” he said. “We have Brody Westmoreland, Steve Ray and our offensive line is unbelievable. We can do anything we want. We can
throw, we can run and we can pass.” In other Continental League action, Trey Smith ran for 118 yards and scored three times in Douglas County’s 44-41 triumph over Highlands Ranch. Mountain Vista mustered just five yards rushing and 162 total yards of offense in a 56-0 loss to leagueleading Regis Jesuit.
titles elude county teams at state softball Slew of local schools compete in 4A, 5A tournaments By Jim Benton
firstname.lastname@example.org T-shirts were being sold outside Aurora Sports Park and some had the score of the Class 5A state championship softball game inserted in a bold font. There were probably not many individuals in the Legend entourage to purchase any of these shirts since Legacy captured the championship with a 6-4 victory over the Titans on a chilly Oct. 20 afternoon. However, there were 60 other teams that play Class 5A girls softball that didn’t have the name of their schools printed on the shirt. “Nobody thought we would be here,” said Legend coach Shelly Boyd. “We were the underdogs. Only two teams make it to the state championship. I’m very proud of the girls and proud of the season. We had to go through Grandview, Rock Canyon and Fossil Ridge just to get to the championship game.” Legend faced a tournament-tested team in Legacy, which won its sixth state title in the past seven seasons. But the Titans took a 1-0 lead on a single by Kaley Garcia that drove home Steph Cardona, who had doubled. However, the Lightning roared back with

four runs in the fourth inning and held a 6-1 lead heading into the bottom of the seventh. Karlee Arnold belted a 3-run homer to pull the Titans within 6-4 but the Legend rally fell short. “One inning killed us,” Boyd said. “The girls battled until the end.” Arnold had four runs batted in during Legend’s 13-8 opening round win over Grandview. Liz Hersey’s 2-run homer was a big hit in the Titans’ 6-1 triumph over Rock Canyon. Fossil Ridge had 27 hits, eight home runs
and scored 29 runs in its first two games but it was Legend coming up with the big plays, hits and aggressive base running in a semifinal victory. Freshman Jesse Smith had three hits, Cardona two hits and two RBI and junior Kylie Hager two singles and three RBI in the win over Fossil Ridge. Legend wound up 20-6 record for the season. Ponderosa, which dropped a 3-2, eightinning game to Erie in the Class 4A semifinals, will have pitcher Ally Power back next
year for her senior season. The Mustangs (19-5) beat Palmer Ridge 6-5 and shut out Berthoud 6-0 before being eliminated. Power struck out 32 batters in the three games, including a big strikeout with the tying and go-ahead runs in scoring position to end the Palmer Ridge game. Ponderosa has nine underclass players on its state tournament roster. “It’s disappointing,” said Mustangs coach Toby Tabola. “When you get that close, knocking on the door, you want to get to the championship game. I don’t walk away with a sour taste because of the way the girls competed.” Legend and Ponderosa fared the best from seven Douglas County area teams in the tournament. Douglas County, the top-seeded team in the Class 5A state playoffs, scored 11 runs in the fifth inning to defeat ThunderRidge, 122, in a first-round game. Biggest hits in the uprising were a 2-run single by Sam Hardy and a 3-run homer by Clara Larson. The Huskies, 20-3, ran into a hard-throwing pitcher in Brighton’s Melissa Rahrich and lost 8-4 to the Bulldogs in the quarterfinals. “We are one of four teams in the school’s 20-year history to go to the Final Eight,” said Huskies coach Brian Stebbins. “We are the State continues on Page 27

second team to ever win 20 games. I’m very proud of the girls for the way they handled themselves this season. We ran into a hot pitcher and came up short at the end.” ThunderRidge’s late-season magic that saw them collect two regional tournament wins to advance into the state tournament disappeared against Douglas County. “These girls have battled all year,” said Grizzlies coach James Dollaghan. “That’s kind of the year that they have had. They’ve been up and down, up and down and we really kind of caught fire in the regionals.” ThunderRidge ended the season with a 10-13 record. Rock Canyon was the tournament’s No. 2 seed and blanked Standley Lake 7-0 in the first round behind Lauren Paige’s shutout pitching. Paige had a solo homer and Zayne
Blumberg belted a grand slam to pace the Jaguars’ offense. However, Rock Canyon couldn’t come up with the big hits and had two runners thrown out at home plate in the loss to Legend in a matchup between Continental League co-champions. Rock Canyon went home with a 17-5 record. “Legend played awesome,” said Jaguars coach Debra Kortbawi. “They made some great plays. I didn’t want to see them. I’m very pleased with our season. This was a good, hard-fighting group with a lot of leadership.” Castle View (13-9) took a 4-2 lead into the bottom of the seventh inning after a grand slam homer by Morgan Duncan but the Sabercats gave up three runs to Eaglecrest in the bottom of the inning and suffered a 5-4 first round loss. In a Class 4A first round game, Valor Christian was ousted by Mountain View. The Eagles had only two hits in a 17-2 loss that ended their season with a 17-6 record.
