Reform slate takes race Tough battle for schools ends with voters’ decision Staff report Candidates favoring the current direction of the reform-oriented Douglas County School Board won all four races, after months of heated electioneering on both sides. Unofficial results released at 11 p.m. Election Day showed the closest race was in District E, where incumbent Doug

Benevento

Geddes

Reynolds

Benevento led challenger Bill Hodges 51.9 percent to 48.1 percent, with a margin of 3,615 votes separating them. In District B, Jim Geddes led 52.6 percent to 47.4 percent over Barbra Chase.

In District D, Judi Reynolds held a 52 percent to 48 percent lead over Julie Keim. In District G, incumbent Meghann Silverthorn held a 53.5 percent lead over Ronda Scholting’s 46.5 perSilverthorn cent. In each race, about 95,000 votes were counted, with a possibility of a few thousand more remaining to be tallied. Reynolds, who was at a vote-watch gathering at the Fowl Line sports bar in

Castle Rock, was looking forward to serving her four-year term. “The majority of people like the way things are headed and want to see them implemented,” she said. Benevento saw a mandate in the results. “The voters elected a slate of candidates who have articulated a clear point of view of where it is we want to go. So we are going to move in that direction and talk to people and listen. Clearly there are a lot of voters who feel the other way and we need to understand that,” he said. Race continues on Page 7

Japanese students visit Castle View School steps up to host group, which was diverted by flood By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com When Boulder High School suffered flood damage during September’s storms, nine students at a Japanese high school thought their plans to visit the United States were in peril. Then a search for high schools with Japanese language programs led them to Castle View High School, and world languages teacher Thor Kjeseth. “We needed a school that has Japanese language classes; it makes it much easier,” said Heidaki Yamamoto, an Erie resident and native of Japan who helps coordinate the annual Shihoro High School trips. “I was relieved when we started talking to Thor. Compared to teachers in the past, he was much more thorough and detailed.” From Kjeseth’s standpoint, Boulder’s loss was Douglas County’s gain. “We feel blessed” to host the students, Kjeseth said. The students and their teacher arrived at Castle View Oct. 30 for a four-day stay. They spent their days shadowing other Castle View students at the school, and their eve-

nings with host students and their families. Teacher Kiyo Kamita and her charges were surprised by the reception they received. As they walked into the school library, pulling wheeled suitcases behind them, Castle View students greeted them with “konnichiwa” — the Japanese word for hello — and bows. “I was very, very touched by the warm reception,” Kamita said. “And just the sheer number of people, because we come from such a small school.” Shihoro is an agricultural community of about 7,000 people, and its high school has only about 160 students. The students were startled by many aspects of American life. “The drink sizes are huge,” said Ryo Anraku. “In the restrooms, the paper towels come out automatically,” chimed in Go Yoshida. “I was surprised.” “You don’t separate your trash,” observed Kotaro Hayakawa. Additionally, most Japanese students wear uniforms, and are not allowed to wear makeup or jewelry, she said. Those differences aside, the students quickly immersed themselves in their host community.

“They’ve been enjoying every minute,” Kamita said. “They experienced their first Wendy’s ever. They were splurging at Park Meadows (mall). I’m sure the highlight is going to be what they experience here with the students.” A change in a district policy limiting the allowable number of foreign exchange students made the nine-student visit possible. On Sept. 3, Castle View students successfully urged the school board to change the previous limit of one foreign language student for every 300 enrolled students. The ratio was lifted, allowing the principal to determine the allowed number of exchange students based on available resources. Kjeseth and his students planned a welcome party, volleyball game and a Japanese/Western-themed dance among other activities. “It’s been our great pleasure to host the students from Shihoro,” Kjeseth said. “Every exchange visit reminds us that the key to international understanding and friendship is not simply dependent on language; rather it is influenced more by a person’s heart and willingness to open up to others.” The Castle Rock stop was the focal point of the students’ 10-day trip, which ended at California’s Universal Studios.

Lone Tree area residents will have one common item for which to be grateful Thanksgiving Day: The end of construction on Park Meadows Drive. Until then, local officials urge drivers impacted by the work to take deep breaths and exercise patience. Construction on the street that extends between Acres Green Drive and Quebec Street has narrowed the four-lane throughway to two bumpy paths. Adding to the angst, drivers turning into businesses along Park Meadows have to wait for an opening in the single through lane, stacking up traffic behind them. It’s an annoyance with which project leaders are keenly aware. “Believe us, we have the same frustration,” said John Cotten, Lone Tree’s public works director. “We are pushing them and the contractor’s doing everything he can. But things can only happen so quickly. We would be grateful for a little more patience.” The job is expected to wrap up just before Thanksgiving, a week later than planned. Cotten said that’s because the paving subcontractor’s portion of the work is delayed a week. Country Buffet general manager Jim Lamphere hopes Cotten’s prediction is accurate; Thanksgiving is the busiest day of the year at his Park Meadows Drive restaurant. “It’s inconvenienced a lot of our guests, but it’s not really hurting our business per se,” Lamphere said. “They’re doing their best. I appreciate all the jobs it’s creating. It’s just, ‘Hurry up.’” Work began on the street in July, with crews taking a break in late August to work on another project before returning for the second phase. The reward for all this angst, Cotten said, will be a much nicer street. Concrete on the street had been failing for years. “It won’t have potholes and cracked concrete,” he said. “People forget how bad it was before.” The $1.2 million project is jointly financed by the City of Lone Tree and Park Meadows Metropolitan District. It also includes the addition of a landscaped median. The metro district will plant trees and flowers there in spring 2014, completing the project’s final phase.

A Facebook page that’s not antisocial media Sept. 22 … that was a really lovely thing you did today, giving flowers to the girls who weren’t asked to homecoming. … It was really good to see that someone cared enough to put some good hard effort into being a good person. For a lot of us it was the highlight of our day. … Thank you so much, really. March 5 The other day when everyone in the west atrium pitched in to help the janitors clean up/stack chairs/fold tables? Ya. That was really cool. If you scroll through the Facebook Compliments page of Lakewood High School, you’ll come across many more just like these. “Positive words,” senior Olivia Ehret says, “have the power to change the community.” One could say that is her mantra and why, almost a year ago, she and a friend decided to duplicate the Compliments page she had stumbled upon on the University of Southern California website. “Oh, gosh, I was entranced by it,” Olivia remembers. “I scrolled on it for two hours. I thought if it could be implemented on such a huge campus as USC, it definitely could at Lakewood.” Compliments, after all, are just one more way of spreading a little kindness. But the accolade-filled Facebook pages also reflect a positive use of social media in an age when it is often used as a tool for meanness and spitefulness. Consider the recent suicide of a 12-yearold Florida girl, who investigators say killed herself after continued online harassment by two other girls, 12 and 14. There have been many other such cases reported. Federal government studies report 52 percent of students have been cyberbullied and

25 percent repeatedly through their cell phones or the Internet. The faceless nature of social media makes it alarmingly easy to be unkind, to cause hurt without feeling or seeing the effects or repercussions. Although many describe social media as impersonal, it’s actually quite the opposite. Plenty of emotion flies across the networked miles — sadly, it’s often the hateful kind. Which is what is so nice about a Compliments page: It puts the heart back into the words. Oct. 30 We only recently talked, but you are an amazing person inside and out. I love how you aren’t afraid to be yourself, it is really inspiring! The nice things you say can make people’s day, like it did mine! One of the first such uses of social media occurred in October 2011 when a young man at Iowa City West High School created a Twitter Compliments account as a way to fight back against cyberbullying in the area. The account took off, tweeting more than 3,000 messages in three months. Several other high schools followed, and then universities, including Columbia, Penn State and Brown, spurred the trend with Facebook pages that, for the most part, remain anonymous by asking users to

send compliments to an inbox from which administrators then tag the messages to the recipient’s News Feed. That’s how it’s done at Lakewood High School. “It’s just a nice way for people’s days to be brightened,” Olivia says. “The beauty is in the mystery.” Although the Lakewood page wasn’t started as a response to cyberbullying, Olivia believes it helps keep the negativity and meanness at bay. In almost a year, there’s only been one comment she’s removed. “I think we’d be a lot more positive and healthy society” if we said nicer things to each other, she says. “People would have better self-images of themselves and feel more open communication with other people. And maybe there would be less instances of bullying if people didn’t feel so isolated and lonely.” March 12 Seeing this page makes me want to transfer to Lakewood as soon as possible. I’ve seen bullying all around at my school. There’s NO ONE that has the courage to compliment one other here. I appreciate how everyone treats each other well. … There is an art to complimenting, though. It must be sincere. It must be truthful. Otherwise, it loses the power to uplift and could do just the opposite, says Michael Karlson, a professor at the University of Denver’s graduate school of professional psychology. An insincere compliment makes you “wonder if that other person doesn’t respect you or know you.” But a genuine one can work a little magic. “It can activate a positive image of yourself,” Karlson says. “Sometimes, when we’re feeling depressed and incompetent, it’s a

reminder of who we usually are.” Olivia would agree. “A lot of people they say the compliments have been posted at just the right time,” she says, because “they were having a rough time.” March 13 To the girl in the bathroom who said I was pretty. … Thanks. I really needed that right then. Olivia, quite wise at 17, has an idea about why we aren’t as kind as we could be — we’re afraid of the reaction, of what people might think of us. “Society is kind of closed off in the sense that when we see something positive about someone we keep it to ourselves,” she says, “especially when it’s someone we don’t know that well.“ We need to take the leap. It’s not that difficult. “Kind words can be short and easy to speak,” a Missionaries of Charities Sisters once said, “but their echoes are truly endless.” If we find we can’t say them, maybe we can write them. Oct. 13, via mobile Luka Savarie, I don’t know you at all. But I think you seem like such a cool and down to earth person. Also your haircut is SO cute. 23 like This made my night. (smiley face) thank you so much you lovely, lovely person. And that says it all. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

Ruptured water line closes Yosemite By George Lurie

glurie@ourcoloradonews.com A water line ruptured early Nov. 4 below Yosemite Street, forcing the closure of the busy road in both directions between Mineral Avenue and Dry Creek Road — but not before a Waste Management trash truck was caught in a large sinkhole created by the water line break. A repair crew from Southgate Water and Sanitation Districts was on the scene the morning of Nov. 4 trying to locate the break in the line and assess the damage to the roadway. A mobile crane was brought in to lift the trash truck out of the sinkhole. Yosemite Street remains closed in both directions between Dry Creek Road and Mineral Avenue because of the water main break. “Due to extensive damage to the road-

Midway through its second year in Douglas County high schools, the block schedule implemented in 2012-13 continues to draw mixed reviews from some parents, recent graduates and current students. District leaders acknowledge that some principals limited the number of classes students could take during the first year of the block schedule, but said they made changes this year to ensure that scenario wasn’t repeated. “This last year, we told (principals), ‘Let students take the classes they want to take Nov. 4 and we’ll support them if it becomes too much of a burden,’” assistant superintendent of secondary education Dan McMinimee said. “Our direction was, `Don’t limit students.’” Two schools got that additional support. Ponderosa High School received an additional $178,000 and Castle View almost $458,000 to hire more teachers. Under the block schedule, students and teachers meet every other day for extended time periods rather than meeting every day

cooperative learning activities can be completed in one class period.

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Douglas County School District graduates and current students don’t share common opinions on the high school block schedule. While a current ThunderRidge High School student gives the schedule an A, a recent graduate saw and experienced problems with it. “I love it,” ThunderRidge High School senior Kianna Nguyen said. “At my school, they allow seniors to take whatever classes they need to take. “I’m taking four AP (Advanced Placement) classes. I also do concurrent enrollment at ACC (Arapahoe Community College). It’s really nice for me because I have time to do all those classes and do my homework.” Nicole Scheuerman, who graduated from ThunderRidge in 2013, also liked the time allowed by off-periods to do homework. But the negatives outweigh the positives in her mind. As a senior, Scheuerman said a scarcity of electives left her with three off-periods. She spent that time working as a teacher’s assistant, but said other students used their free time differently. “There were many kids who’d just go home and not stay at school, or go off for lunch and skip the rest of the day if they

for shorter periods. In most Douglas County schools, eight 45-minute sessions are offered one day a week, then split into two days each of four 90-minute classes the remainder of the week. That translates into correspondingly longer off-periods, which means big spans of free time for upperclassmen, with two or three off-periods. It also drops instructional time by about 10 hours per class. District leaders said the change was needed to address a predicted budget short-

only had one class,” she said. “High schoolers don’t make the right decisions all the time. There’s a lot of freedom I don’t think should be given to juniors, seniors. You shouldn’t have half a day off from school; you should be in school learning, trying to better yourself and succeed, and kids don’t grasp that concept.” Nguyen said friends who graduated from ThunderRidge last year reported no problems getting into the colleges of their choice. But a Douglas County High School graduate said the three off-periods common to many seniors can give college admissions officers a negative impression. Rigor is “one of the main factors colleges consider when you’re applying,” said Bill Kakenmaster, a freshman at American University. “They don’t want to see you slack off. The feeling some students got was that we were getting shortchanged.” McMinimee said block schedules are common nationwide and not a barrier for prospective college students. “My experience has been it’s never the type of schedule you’re on,” he said. “It’s the GPA (grade point average), the test scores, the rigor of classes you take.” Several websites on college admission criteria concur that rigor is an important consideration. “The grades you achieve in classes throughout high school … are obviously important, but the courses that you elect to take and the rigor of the courses you select are probably even more important to the admissions committee,” according to collegebasic.com.

crime report ipad stolen from wrecked car

A Highlands Ranch resident involved in a motor-vehicle accident about 3:30 p.m. Oct. 21 went to his vehicle — which was impounded in the 8500 block of South Valley Highway in unincorporated Douglas County — to retrieve his belongings two days later. Upon arriving, he noticed his iPad was no longer in the vehicle. He used his tracking software and received reports that the iPad had been in Denver and was now in Aurora. He then sent a message to the iPad, setting off an alert. The device was immediately turned off. No video surveillance was available at the impound lot, and the iPad has not been retrieved.

According to employees of the store, the man often comes in and tells staff that he is there to pick up a prescription, but has no prescriptions on file and no one in the pharmacy knows his name. Each time he has been approached by employees he pretends to be talking on his phone.

soopers scammer steals food

A white male suspect in his late 20s or early 30s returned an item valued at $30 at the King Soopers in the 8600 block of S. Quebec St. in Highlands Ranch on Oct. 22, before then going on a shopping spree in the store. The only problem, according to employees and surveillance tapes, was that he failed to pay for the $150 worth of groceries he loaded his cart with before exiting the store and driving away.

fall that later proved inaccurate, reduce class sizes and retain electives. Because budget constraints didn’t allow DCSD to add new high school teachers, almost all taught additional classes — six classes out of the eight periods instead of the previous five of seven. Douglas County High School Principal Tony Kappas believes students have more advantages under the block schedule. “I think we’re all in a better place,” he said. “We’ve been allowed to save programs and reduce our ratios in the classrooms.”

The schedule is based on freshmen and sophomores taking seven classes, juniors six and seniors five or six, Kappas said, but requests for additional classes are always considered. Highlands Ranch High School students were not limited with the introduction of the block schedule, Principal Jerry Goings said. “We put suggestions on what they could and couldn’t do, but we never put a limit on them,” he said. “We worked with every single kid individually to make sure their educational needs were met. It’s not the perfect system. But we were still able to operate the schools on less money.” Students are not required to take three off-periods, but some choose to, he said. Both principals credit their teachers for taking on additional duties. “The one major recognition and kudos goes to the teachers,” Kappas said. Goings echoed him. “The biggest sacrifice was on teachers,” he said. “If the money was there right now, I would come back with a derivative of what we’re doing now; I probably would look at a five-of-seven with some block like we’re doing now.” That schedule would help teachers, he said, but added, “I’ve got to make sure my class sizes continue to be at a good level. The year before (the block schedule), they were not. I don’t having classes of 35, 36 kids was a good situation.”

opinions / yours and ours

For all who chew, this spud’s for you There are few things better than a baked potato, but you must never have one before Sept. 22. It’s very bad luck if you do. To be safe, I don’t bake one until the day the clocks fall back. This year that was Nov. 3. In French, a potato is a “pomme de terre”: an apple from the earth. Apples are great too, but you can’t put sour cream or bacon bits on them. French fries in French are “les frites.” Makes no sense. I couldn’t explain why baked potatoes are so wonderful when they are so ordinary and abundant any better than Katharine Hepburn’s description of Spencer Tracy. Hepburn compared Tracy to a baked potato. “A baked potato is pure,” she said. “It’s of the earth, and it’s dependable, that was Spencer.” We rarely had baked potatoes when I was growing up. We had mashed potatoes,

and they’re almost as good as baked potatoes. I played with my mashed potatoes, however. It’s difficult to play with baked potatoes, so immediately you feel more grown up. I am a miserable cook, but I can bake a potato. They are foolproof, unless you take them out of the oven too soon, which I have done. Then they are crunchy, and not so good. Baked potatoes should be prepared when the weather breaks, when summer has packed up, and autumn registers for a while, before winter settles in.

question of the week

Will Fox’s absence hurt the Broncos? After head coach John Fox’s emergency medical procedure that will keep him away from the Broncos’ sidelines for a month or two, Colorado Community Media stopped by the Sports Authority and Target in Highlands Ranch’s Town Center and asked local residents what sort of impact they thought Fox’s absence would have on the team.

“It won’t (have any impact). Peyton is the quarterback, he’s the coach.” — Brandon Nelon, Littleton

“I don’t think we will miss him too much. Del Rio is a good interim coach, and we have Peyton.” — Chris Mueller, Highlands Ranch

“I don’t think it will affect them. I think Jack Del Rio is quite capable. He has proven himself as a head coach.” — Katie Allison, Highlands Ranch

“I don’t think it will affect them; we’ve got Peyton. He could be the coach, the quarterback, he can do whatever.” — Angelina Heuchert, Centennial

Exit onto road less traveled “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” From the Robert Frost poem, “The Road Not Taken.” Have you been there, faced with a tough decision or at a crossroad in your life? And if so, did you take the road less traveled or did you follow the path where the ground had been cleared and maybe just a little bit easier to traverse? I have found myself at that decision point on more than one occasion, a true crossroad in my life. And maybe it’s the closet poet in me and huge fan of Robert Frost, but I, in most cases, seem to take the road less traveled. In most cases it has served me well and set me on a new course, adventurous tour, and wild ride. But just as the poem reads, “… and that has made all the difference.” And then there have been those few times where I followed the masses, accepted the easy path, went along to get along, and I found myself either bored or disappointed, always wondering what would have been or could have been had I chosen the road less traveled. You see, I am not a very good “yes” man, and when I find myself at a decision point, especially a critical decision point, I need to be able to evaluate my options and determine what most others might choose to do, and dig in deeper to the “why” behind their decisions. And this is what usually triggers my decision to try an alternate route. When people share with me where they are in the crossroads of their own life, I often encourage them to take the time to clearly write out all of the op-

There may be no better dinner on a snowy evening than a baked potato. It is a simple and honest meal or side dish. Compare this to lobster. You don’t have to euthanize a potato. Compare baking a potato to homemade lasagna or Thai pretzel chicken. You just pre-heat the oven, foil-wrap or olive-oil the potato, and then go do something else for a couple of hours — unless you microwave it. Which I never do. For some reason, I prefer to bake potatoes. It’s a part of their charm. I speed-dial frozen entrees all the time, but I don’t want to speed-dial a potato. I’d add some thoughts about the Irish potato famine, but it’s unpleasant, and I want a pleasant column for a change. No complaints or grudges, or proposals of prison time for tailgaters. This surprised me: “China is now the world’s largest potato-producing country, and nearly a third of the world’s potatoes are harvested in China and India.” India?

D.C. must grow up In stark contrast to Washington’s dysfunction, which brought us a 16-day government shutdown and the risk of default in October, Coloradans know what it means to do their jobs day in and day out. Across the state, and in some cases as they recovered from catastrophic flooding, workers in Colorado continued to carry out their duties and meet their responsibilities, in light of the paralysis in Washington. From police officers to teachers, business owners to assembly-line workers, we proved that Colorado doesn’t shut down. To highlight this point, immediately following the shutdown, we traveled across the state to work side-by-side with Coloradans who are working hard day in and day out. Despite challenges they face, the workers we met with were meeting their obligations, providing for their families, and contributing to our economy. At Adam’s Mountain Cafe, an eatery in Manitou Springs, the restaurant’s owner, Farley McDonough, quickly put me to work. Between filling waters and wiping down tables, I talked with customers about the hardships and losses they’ve suffered as a result of the mudslides and flooding in Manitou this summer. They also shared with me their frustration with the dysfunction in Washington. Later, when riding along with Officer Marcus Juliano on his beat in Pueblo, I witnessed his dedication to his community as he responded to call after call well into the night. In Fowler, at the family-owned Jensen’s Blue Ribbon Processing, Jerry Jensen, the meatpacking plant’s owner, explained the challenges and costs of competing with

Lone Tree Voice tions, all of the pros and cons, and to visualize each option as if they actually made the decision to pursue that option. When we are faced with a decision point or at a crossroads, we should surround ourselves with strong friends, wise advisers and people we absolutely trust to be our sounding board and help us walk through our options and thought processes around each important decision we need to make. Do I take more risks than I should? Yes. Are they educated risks or guesses? In most cases. Do I follow my heart, my gut, and attempt to balance that with what is going through my head? Yes. But at the end of the day, as Robert Frost says, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” I would love to hear what you do at the crossroads of your life at gotonorton@gmail.com and I really do believe that this will be a better than good week.

Marvels.” I can’t get enough. Now and then the History Channel has a “Modern Marvels” marathon and I am glued to it. Season 15, Episode 3: “Potato.” Originally aired January 28, 2010. It covers everything about potatoes, and the narrator, justifiably, makes the ordinary potato sound like a major contributor to civilization. The narrator, Lloyd Sherr, has one of the great voices in television. His stage name is Max Raphael, which is a combination of his sons’ names, Max and Raphael. He makes the potato sound heroic. Idaho is sometimes called the “Potato State,” but its real nickname is the “Gem State,” which isn’t very inspiring. You’re in the clear: It’s past Sept. 22, the first day of autumn. Have a baked potato tonight.

large companies. Jerry works hard every day to keep his doors open. At U.S. Tractor and Harvest Inc. in Alamosa, mechanics explained the difficulties small farms are facing due to drought and high feed costs, not to mention the fact that Washington has yet to reauthorize the farm bill. Whether it was substitute teaching in Denver, working at Brown Cycles and Edgewater Brewery in Grand Junction, or hauling onions at Tuxedo Farms in Olathe, the contrast between these hard-working Coloradans and the political antics going on in Washington was crystal-clear. Though the government has reopened — at least temporarily — the effects of this ridiculous and manufactured crisis were undeniably damaging to the country and to Colorado. As we look forward, now is the time for Washington to get its act together and work on priorities important to Coloradans. This includes fixing our broken immigration system, passing the farm bill, and most importantly crafting a balanced bipartisan budget.

Reformers keep control in school district GOP-endorsed slate sweeps Douglas County school race By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The Douglas County School District likely will continue with its education reform efforts, as four candidates who endorse those changes won their races for board seats. The Douglas County Republican-endorsed slate of candidates, including two incumbents and two newcomers who support the current board’s education reform efforts, prevailed over four candidates heavily supported by community-based organizations. Incumbents Doug Benevento and Meghann Silverthorn, and Judi Reynolds and Jim Geddes will be sworn in at a school board meeting, but not until the election results are certified. Since the county’s Board of Canvass isn’t set to meet until Nov. 21, that could be as late as Dec. 3. Board vice president Kevin Larsen said he wants to keep the district moving forward. “Even when things are excellent, you always want to be looking ahead to what’s going to keep your kids ahead in the future world,” he said. “I don’t want us to be the best buggy whip maker. The automobile revolutionized the way people get around. On a different level, we are now connecting the world

Race Continued from Page 1

“The voters have elected four candidates who believe in parental choice and who believe in performance pay. It’s a very clear mandate about the direction we are going.” Silverthorn said, “I think the voters have clearly said: `We want you to continue modernizing education,’ but let’s talk about how we are doing that.”

Challenger plans recount

After the night’s earliest release of partial election results, which didn’t look good for the challenger candidates, those opposing the current board’s direction said they were still optimistic. “We’re on the right side,” said Keim. “I really believe we have the community’s support and we’ll see that at the end.” “I’m a little nervous, a little surprised,” said Chase. The challenger candidates were gathered with about 200 supporters at Stumpy’s Pizza in Castle Rock. The mood in the restaurant, jubilant before the 7:30 p.m. announcement of initial returns in the Republican-endorsed slates’ favor, turned somber, expressions of concern replacing smiles. One challenger candidate already appeared to be heading toward a recount. “We have already got a plan for a recount,” Sue

Their areas of concern covered a broad range of issues, including a discon-

nect among the board, community members and teachers. “We just witnessed parent voices being silenced in their own school district,” said Susan Meek, a board member with Douglas County Parents, one of the community groups supporting the challenger candidates. “So many volunteers have worked tirelessly to ensure that a significant portion of the community has a voice on the school board, and what we witnessed is outside funders and influences trumped parents. The record number of voters in this school

Kober, Julie Keim’s campaign manager, announced to the crowd gathered at Stumpy’s after the second wave of results was released. “We have an attorney who said he would help us pro bono. “This is about our teachers, this is about our students, this is about our community. We are not done.” Those results still showed the pro-board candidates in the lead, though Kober insisted it was too close to call. Kober was hostess for the evening, announcing results to the people gathered at Stumpy’s. The evening of Election Day brings to a close years of school-board campaigning that began with the conclusion of the 2011 Douglas County School Board election, and culminated during the last few months with a series of community-led protests, emotional school board meetings, teacher resignations, lawsuits and high-dollar campaigns that heightened divisions within the community. In 2011 and in 2009, board seats went to Douglas County Republican-supported candidates who support the education reform policies now in place. The reforms include a court-stymied voucher program, and controversial teacher evaluation and pay systems. Both the reform policies and a fractious campaign have drawn the nation’s attention. Some say Douglas County is a testing ground for the reform effort, a characterization board opponents decry as subjecting

local children to experimentation. The school board and administration say the changes made and those still planned by current officials will make Douglas County a leader in the nation, and better prepare children for a rapidly changing world. Critics contend the seven-member board is acting according to an outsidedriven agenda to privatize public educa-

board election demonstrates that people in our community care deeply about being represented. “For elected individuals to ignore, belittle and intimidate a significant portion of the community is inexcusable and will lead to further turmoil and division in Douglas County. We will continue to advocate for our children’s future and our future as this board continues to dismantle one of the highest-performing school districts in the state.” Larsen, whose seat was not up for election, said he already had made plans he hopes will bridge community divides, “regardless of the outcome”. “In a lot of ways, the vote is a bit of a referendum on which way the community wants the school district to go,” he said. ““We have to figure out a way to get everybody together regardless of their view on the outcome, to make sure this is the best district it can be. I do think we need to get to where we can have a conversation about policy and issues and get beyond the personal hurt and attacks the campaign has tended to bring.” Larsen wants to see changes in the board’s meeting structure to allow more public engagement as well as open community forums. Meek noted that the vast majority of campaign funds for the newly elected board members came from outside the county, while almost all the money donated to the challengers was given by Douglas County residents.

The winning candidates join school board vice president Kevin Larsen, and board members Craig Richardson and Justin Williams. Staff writers Jane Reuter and Ryan Boldrey contributed to this report.

Stories preserve veterans’ histories Library of Congress stores photos, letters By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Former Marine Corps Sgt. Lou Seago had so many close calls in World War II that he almost didn’t make it home alive. And if it weren’t for the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project, his tales of fortitude might have been forever lost. The project, initiated in 2000, now showcases more than 70,000 oral histories — soon to include Seago’s stories of Saipan and Iwo Jima — along with photographs, letters, journals, artwork, military documents and other original war-related items from veterans of numerous wars throughout American history. With help from local institutions across the country — such as Douglas County Libraries — those oral histories and original materials are being collected before time runs out for older veterans such as Seago. Before shipping the documents and interviews away to D.C., the library district also retains copies of all area veterans’ histories at the Philip S. Miller Branch in Castle Rock, and visitors can make an appointment to view them at any time. One can also listen or read the transcripts of close to half of the 100 veteran interviews already done by visiting www.douglascountyhistory.org. “We try to play the role of facilitator,” said DCL archivist Adam Speirs. “We create the space where these things can happen, but it’s a volunteer-driven project, we have volunteer transcribers, we have volunteer interviewers, the people being interviewed

are volunteering to participate in the project, and what we do is make sure all the paperwork gets filled out and everything is preserved correctly.” Since the start of the project, Speirs said, the library was getting about one or

Marine Corps veteran Lou Seago, left, and Air Force and Army veteran Cliff Butler share a laugh together recently. The two Wind Crest residents are both participating in the Veterans History Project, sponsored locally by Douglas County Libraries and nationally by the Library of Congress. Photo by Ryan Boldrey

Highlands Ranch community for just two months, has already rounded up 25 willing veterans from his new home to participate and plans on getting as many people involved as possible. “We need to preserve these stories for the sake of history,” said Butler, whose familial military lines are traced back all the way to the Civil and Revolutionary wars. “Kids nowadays don’t realize when they look at people like Lou that if it weren’t for them they would be speaking German or Japanese. It’s a way of honoring these guys. A lot of them don’t even realize how valuable their story is to our history.” “A lot of people say, `I didn’t do anything, you don’t want to hear my story,’ but we want to hear everyone’s stories,” Speirs said. “I can’t tell you how much we’ve gained from it. The more stories I listen to the more I realize how totally alien that reality is from my personal reality. This depth of human experience would be inaccessible to me if it hadn’t been for this project. ... You don’t just stop people in the street and say, `Hey tell me about your story.’ You need a place for this to happen.” The library will celebrate its 10th year of involvement in the project from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Nov. 16, at the Philip S. Miller Library, 100 S. Wilcox St. in Castle Rock. Local veterans who have participated will share their experiences, while a group called Remembering Our Veterans will demonstrate how they share veteran stories. All are welcome to attend the celebration. For more information on the project, please visit www.loc.gov/vets. To volunteer or share your personal story if you are a veteran, please contact Speirs at 303-6887733 or aspeirs@dclibraries.org.

When Greg brings home a street-smart dog named Sylvia, he and his wife Kate find their marriage in jeopardy. Sylvia offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age; as Greg becomes more and more attached to the pooch, we explore the relationship between man and dog, man and wife, and wife and dog. Filled with lots of laughs and thoughtful insights, Sylvia is a unique and perceptive look at modern love.

Parker Chamber names president after search Official has led similar group in Norfolk, Neb. By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com After a three-month search, the Parker Chamber of Commerce has named its new president. The 742-member organization announced the hiring of Dennis Houston, who will leave his position as president of the Norfolk (Neb.) Area Chamber of Commerce at the end of the month. He will take over as the Parker chamber president and chief executive officer Dec. 1. Houston (pronounced How-ston) was among 48 Houston applicants for the position, which was vacated at the end of July when Dan Rodriguez submitted a letter of resignation. Interim president Jo Ann Frost, who will resume her duties as the chairwoman of the chamber board of directors, said the organization is looking forward to refocusing on programming and membership growth and retention with a new leader in place. “It’s been challenging with the transition and putting things on hold until we got someone in place,” she said. “Our priority has been getting a president/CEO. It’s nice to be in this position now instead of feeling like we’re catching up all the time.” The top selection from a narroweddown field of three candidates, Houston demonstrated the experience, dynamic personality and professionalism the cham-

ber was seeking, Frost said. The board has a list of goals and will get Houston’s feedback and input once he is settled. “We’re anxious to see where he can take our chamber, as going into 2014 we have lots of exciting things going on,” she said. “We want to expand on programs that are just now taking shape.” On a professional level, Houston says he is looking forward to learning about the challenges and opportunities in the business community. He is also eager to engage in strategic planning with Town of Parker officials, the school district and Douglas County. “I’m looking forward to that collaboration so we can all make sure Parker grows in a positive way that we’re all proud of,” Houston said. The Norfolk, Neb., area shares similarities with Parker because it’s a growing community in a semi-rural area. The town of Norfolk has a population of about 25,000, but the service area contains about 125,000 people, Houston said. His experience in working with different sectors — from home-based businesses to small retail shops to industrial companies —was a quality the search committee took notice of, Frost said. After a weeks-long “listening tour” to learn the lay of the land, Houston wants to discuss with the board the chamber’s role in helping Parker achieve its goals. On a personal level, the move to Colorado has been a long time coming. Houston visits Colorado about twice annually with his wife and two boys, and a permanent move has been one of the family’s objectives. “The lifestyle is a big part of it for us,” Houston said.

Concert aids flood victims

“A Painter at Work” by Paul Cezanne, 1874-75, oil on panel, is in the “Nature as Muse” portion of “Passport to Paris,” and shows the start of “plein air” painting by the Impressionists as oil paints became available in tubes. From the Frederick Hamilton Collection. Photos courtesy of the Denver Art Museum

Art offers view of French society ‘Passport to Paris’ at Denver museum By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Three related shows meld together flawlessly at the Denver Art Museum to give local art lovers a welcoming visit to Paris and its environs. Beloved artists appear in more than one collection, showing how they bridged across years and segments of society and from academic standards to joyful renderings of sunshine and the outdoors. “Passport to Paris” continues through Feb. 9, 2014, in the Hamilton Building. “Court to Cafe: Three Centuries of French Artworks from the Wadsworth Atheneum” is the entry point, and it features 50 works from the collection of the famous museum in Hartford, Conn. These works begin with 17th-century paintings of religious scenes, mythological subjects, landscapes, still lifes and genre scenes and extend to the early 19th century. This DAM installation in the second floor Anschutz Gallery is especially welldesigned and features high color, handstenciled walls, architectural moldings and decorative art from the museum’s own collection, such as damask chairs and small furniture pieces. Music plays in the background. Another pleasing touch is the inclusion of several stylish white dresses, matching the ones depicted in paintings of intimate home scenes. They are on loan from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Since works range from the early 1600s to the early 1900s, the visitor finds early works by Edgar Degas, Camille Pissaro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cezanne, Vincent Van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse Lautrec and Claude Monet here, plus later works in the two subsequent exhibits, weaving threads of the story together. Next stop is “Drawing Room: an Intimate Look at French Drawings from the Esmond Bradley Martin Collection,” a collection that is kept at the DAM, although its owner lives elsewhere. It is on the second floor in the Martin and McCormick Gallery. Included are 39 works on paper in a range of techniques. Sketches by artists from across the time period draw a viewer up close to appreciate the lines — in fact, there are some magnifying lenses provided

“Nympheas (Water Lilies)” by Claude Monet, 1907 oil on canvas, is loaned by the Wadsworth Atheneum.

if you go “Passport to Paris” continues through Feb. 9 at the Denver Art Museum, 13th Avenue between Broadway and Bannock, with a special exhibition ticket that includes all three segments plus general museum admission. Tickets cost $12 members/$22 adult non-members, with discounts. See denverartmuseum.org or call 720-865-5000. There will be extended holiday hours — again see the website.

for those who need assistance in appreciating the delicate works. For the first time, Impressionist paintings from the Frederic C. Hamilton collection are shown in what may be the most popular segment: “Nature as Muse.” Some works from the DAM collection are blended into this collection in the Gallagher Family Gallery on the first floor, which focuses on landscape. In a press tour, DAM

director Christoph Heinrich pointed out that oil paints became available in tubes in the mid-1800s, enabling artists to work outdoors in that medium, “en plein air.” Because many Colorado artists prefer to work outdoors, it is expected that they will especially relate to “Nature as Muse” with its sunlit orchards and gardens. Related programming is extensive throughout the exhibit time. See denverartmuseum.org for scheduling. Of particular note is a collaboration with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, which provided a soundtrack for the Court to Cafe exhibit in advance and featured French music in its Nov. 1-3 concerts. Every Saturday at 1 p.m., various symphonic ensembles will present a 45-minute performance at the museum, featuring French masterworks with commentary to place them in context. The first-floor studio space will become a drawing studio, with local artists demonstrating and teaching on weekends.

Colorado Rising, a benefit concert for flood relief featuring performances by Dave Matthews, The Fray, Big Head Todd and The Monsters, Wesley Schultz, Jeremiah Fraites and Neyla Pekarek of The Lumineers, Devotchka and Nathaniel Rateliff, raised $650,000 on Oct. 27 at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield. And from what I was told through emails and Facebook posts, the evening of unprecedented entertainment from Colorado musicians was a smash hit. The money raised will go to www. liveunitedcolorado.org, the United Ways of Colorado Flood Recovery Fund. “It’s no surprise that the entire music community from musicians to fans stepped up in a time of need for Colorado,” said Chuck Morris, president and CEO of concert organizer AEG Live Rocky Mountains. “Thank you all.”

Trivia at Inverness

WorldDenver, a nonprofit community organization dedicated to advancing an understanding of global affairs and cultures, is hosting its first Global Cup Challenge trivia fundraiser from 6 to 10 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center in Arapahoe County. The evening, with beverages sponsored by Molson Coors Brewing Co., will begin with a pub-food-themed buffet dinner following by an international trivia competition. Teams of five will compete in five rounds of questions based on current affairs, geography, businesses and organizations as well as globally minded professionals testing their knowledge to win donated prizes and a year of bragging rights. Celebrity quiz masters include: Kay Landen and Joanne Posner-Mayer (event co-chairs), Carolyn Richards, Joe Megyesy, Katie Evans, Alice Anneberg, Laurie Zeller, Kim Savit, Beverley Simpson and Selena Dunham. Greg Dobbs and Anna Alejo will serve as celebrity quiz masters for the Challenge. Funds raised will support WorldDenver’s programs: Denver World Affairs Council, Young Professionals, International Visitor Leadership Program, Home Hospitality, GlobaLiteracy and WorldDenver Talks. For registration materials, event information and sponsorship opportunities, go to www.globalcupchallenge.org.

greensky Bluegrass comes to gothic Jam favorites set for two-night run By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com No strangers to the Colorado music scene, Michigan-born jam-grass band Greensky Bluegrass — which opened at Red Rocks for Galactic and Railroad Earth this summer — will grace The Gothic Theatre stage for the first time this coming weekend. The hard-touring quintet will be headlining the Englewood theatre Nov. 15 and 16, with fellow bluegrass band Fruition supporting both nights. The band, which started as a trio playing open mic nights in Kalamazoo, Mich., in 2000, added standup bassist Mike Devol in 2004 and dobro-player extraordinaire Anders Beck in 2007.

Memories filtered through family lens ‘99 Histories’ runs at Vintage Theatre By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “99 Histories” by Korean dramatist Julia Cho follows a well-used and generally compelling design, one that draws in audience members of several age ranges — mother-daughter conflict and the histories behind it. Mothers, daughters, sisters and aunts in three generations are remembered in a story that is about a Korean-American family, but could translate to any nationality. The play runs through Nov. 16 and invites a visit from area theater lovers.

Book sheds light on Indian Wars Writer will appear at Tattered Cover LoDo By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com When co-author Bob Drury appears in Denver on Nov. 14, he should attract many local history buffs who focus on the chaotic 19th-century Western American Indian Wars. He and fellow writer Tom Clavin have just published their account of the Ogalala Sioux chief Red Cloud — described as “the only Plains Indian to defeat the United States Army in a war, forcing the American government to sue for peace in a conflict named for him.” The book is titled “The Heart of Everything That Is,” which is a translation for the Native American “Paha Sapa,” the sacred Black Hills area in what is now South Dakota. More specifically, the mystical “breathing” Wind Cave of the Black Hills is thought to be where the ancient gods delivered the ancestors of Red Cloud and his people. When the “manifest destiny” proponents of the U.S. government eyed the potential gold in the Black Hills as fair game, there followed many years of broken treaties and fierce combat. These authors write in clear descriptive terms about the lands the Sioux controlled at one time — said to be about 20 percent of the contiguous United States, shown on a map that extends from Iowa to Idaho and north into Montana. The Bozeman Trail, a main route for westward gold seekers and other settlers, ran through it. The writers also are skilled in describing the total philosophical disconnect between whites and Indians — not new information certainly, but particularly well stated. An autobiography by Red Cloud, dictated to a longtime friend, white trapper Sam Deon, was found, which offered new material. The extensive bibliography cites the many original sources the authors found, such as writings by the commander of Fort Phil Kearny, Col. Henry B. Carrington. These lend color throughout the book, including domestic details from women and grisly accounts of slaughter. On Dec. 21, a combative Capt. William J. Fetterman, sent out from the fort to protect a wood gathering train — and firmly instructed not to chase lurking Indians over the ridge — gave in to visions of glory and chased Indian scouts who had been teasing. (A final insult was when an insolent Crazy Horse mooned him and his troops, according to Drury and Clavin.) He led his limited number of about 80 Bluecoats into an ambush by about 2,000 waiting warriors, resulting in what is now called the Fetterman Massacre, in which all the members of the Fetterman party were killed.

Letterpress museum taking shape Much work to be done on old Englewood Depot By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “Celebrate the Englewood Depot,” says a poster designed by Tom Parson, who has bought the old Englewood Santa Fe Depot from the city. The depot now sits empty on Dartmouth Avenue. Parson’s plan is to keep the historic facade intact, as a designated historic landmark, and create a “living museum” dedicated to letterpress typography, art and poetry, with a working print shop, which will also be a teaching facility and hopefully, a community meeting place. The poster uses 11 different typestyles from Parson’s extensive collection: Egyptian Clarendon Ornamented, Samoa, Gothic Concave Tuscan Condensed, Racine, Skeleton Antique, Latin Expanded, Bradley Italic, Gothic, P.T. Barnum, Mowry Antique and Palantino Italic. He printed it at his business, Now It’s

Up to You, at his home in Denver, where he has about a dozen historic printing presses, about 2,500 fonts of metal type and hundreds of fonts of wooden type and thousands of antique printer’s cuts, ornaments and borders, which will go to the museum. For a period, he attended auctions every weekend, he said. He got interested in printing through a study of poetry, which is sometimes printed on the old presses in limited editions. His large library of poetry and typographic history will also have a place in the museum. His wife, Patti Parson, is managing producer for the PBS NewsHour, with responsibility for budgets and production staff news coverage, writing foundation grants that have secured millions, according to the couple’s proposal to the City of Englewood, presented Feb. 28. An open house to benefit the project was held on Oct. 26 at Ray Tomasso’s studio in Englewood, which houses many more antique printing presses, including a Washington Press, circa 1891, where depot volunteer Wilson Thomas was printing souvenir posters, one at a time.

The organizers were selling subscriptions to a folio of letterpress prints contributed by artists around the world — to be delivered in the spring of 2014 — for donations starting at $150. Tom Parson said he and his wife are in the middle of setting a schedule for renovation of the interior, which involves bringing it up to ADA standards, adding heat, electricity, plumbing, handicap-accessible bathrooms … and an east wall in the basement. They are also in the middle of setting up a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, which will ease the process of getting donations. They have sufficient funds to renovate the old building, which will have a preservation easement on the facade, per state historical society standards. His start-up mailing list of 90 includes young art student/interns who have learned to make plastic printing plates with a computer, using the old typestyles; the guild of book workers and individual printing aficionados such as Wilson Thomas, who is also a teacher and musician who recently moved to Denver. There are a

number of interested women also, involved with Etsy and the craft movement. He hopes to cooperate with city organizations and others to provide public access. The city’s community gardens are next to his property and he hopes the gardeners may want to meet at the museum on occasion, for example. A membership structure will be established in the future. “The biggest problem is the building itself,” which needs substantial work, Parson said. Architect friends are working on design solutions, which will include a lift for the handicapped from the main floor to basement, where the print shop will be established. Watch for progress on the Mission Style depot. Englewood’s managers and departments have been “really great and helpful,” Parson said, including building, zoning, fire, etc. For information: englewooddepot@ gmail.com, or Parson can be reached at 720-480-5358.

GALLERY OF GAMES

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) You enjoy the attention early in the week, but it might be a good idea to opt for some privacy by week’s end so that you can have more time to consider an upcoming decision. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) You unearthed some surprising facts. Now you need to consider how to use them to your advantage. Meanwhile, it might be best to keep what you’ve learned secret for now. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) A comment by a colleague piques your curiosity to know more. Best advice: You’ll find people more likely to offer information if you’re discreet when making your inquiries. CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) Your energy levels begin to rise by midweek. This allows you to catch up with your heavy workload and still have plenty of get-up-and-go to go out on the town this weekend. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) You’re probably roaring your head off about a perceived slight from a longtime critic. Ignore it. That person might just be trying to goad you into doing something you might later regret. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) The early part of the week is open to spontaneity. Then it’s time to settle into your usual routine to get all your tasks done. A personal situation could require more attention from you. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) A meeting of the minds on a workplace project might well develop into something more personal for Libras looking for romance. Aspects are also favorable for platonic relationships. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) A more-positive mood might be difficult to assume in light of a recent problem involving the health of someone special. But by week’s end, your emotional barometer should start to rise. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Look for a changed attitude from a former adversary once he or she realizes you have your colleagues’ full support. Now you can refocus your energies on that workplace project. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) This time, a difference of opinion might not be resolved in your favor. But be patient. It ultimately could all work out to your advantage, as new information begins to develop. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) A tug of war develops between the artistic Aquarian’s creative aspect and his or her practical side. Best advice: Prioritize your schedule so you can give appropriate time to both. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) You could be entering a career phase awash with job-related demands. But avoid being swamped by the overflow and, instead, keep treading water as you deal with demands one by one. BORN THIS WEEK: You are an exceptionally loyal person, and you’re respected for your ability to keep the secrets entrusted to you. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Graffiti gives birth to art concept Aaron’s work shown in Englewood By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com “In `Urban Scrawl,’ I sought to uncover a new form of self-expression, a language that found its roots in graffiti but became something else entirely,” says Patricia Aaron’s artist statement for an exhibit at Museum Outdoor Arts. “I layered encaustic and street-artist ink, carving and splattering the surfaces of my canvases to juxtapose thriving cities and broken landscapes, spare beginnings and elaborate ends. The result was a vibrant montage of textures, strokes and colors — an abstract reflection of the chaotic and dynamic scenes that were the impetus behind this work.” She talks of recent visits to Cape Town, South Africa, and New York City, where she was constantly drawn to the ever-present graffiti — an underlying presence in this collection of paintings. Aaron’s ideas are colorfully illustrated with a collection of new works included in a joint exhibit, “Urban Abstract — Rural Grid,” with Denver ceramic artist Chandler Romeo at the Museum Outdoor Arts in Englewood, which runs through March 8, 2014. She said, during a visit to her home studio in Greenwood Village, that she and Romeo had their art placed together in an exhibit last year at the Republic Building in Denver. They decided it was a good fit and pitched the idea of a joint exhibit to Cyn-

Patricia Aaron’s studio holds a hot box, to the side of her painting table, where she keeps melted encaustic medium in assorted colors and numerous paintbrushes and tools. Photo courtesy of Dustin Ellingboe thia Madden Leitner, the MOA director, who curated the Republic Building show. MOA’s theme for the year is “abstract,” which works for Aaron’s colorful two-dimensional works and Romeo’s sculptural clay compositions. Aaron explained her encaustic process to studio visitors, starting with a onepound block of beeswax: She melts eight pounds at a time in a crock pot, adding a pound of Damar crystals, the material Damar varnish is made from. Clear yellow, it has bits of insects and debris in it. After two to three hours of cooking in the crockpot, she strains the liquid medium through polyester and loads it into a muffin pan (large), storing the resulting cakes

until needed. “I’m always making these,” she said. Next step is to melt a cake of medium and add pigment in a container set on her studio hotbox. She keeps an assortment of colors ready to work with, discarding them if they grow muddy. With inexpensive bristle brushes, she strokes the material onto a board backing: wood or Masonite panel. For this show, she used both, including some circular panels built at the MOA during an early fall residency from reclaimed barn wood. In addition, there is a series of 21 wheels, “Urban Legends,” poured in molds during her MOA residency and mounted in groups of three. When the artist brushes the melted wax

on the board, it sets up immediately and she uses a torch to fuse it with the layers beneath it. Or, she may stroke on layers of ink, which will blend with the wax when fused. She may also carve and scrape the surface with a ceramic tool, adding texture to the work. The resulting pieces, each distinctively different, will look alive, almost in motion to a viewer who can discover patterns in the multiple layers of intense color and black ink accents. Aaron also makes encaustic monoprints by painting on the hotbox surface and laying a piece of paper on it and rubbing with a brayer. “I love mark making,” she says happily. Aaron, who earned an MFA from the University of Denver in 1998, has taught and exhibited widely and held several artist residencies. She and her husband have three grown daughters.

Santa Claus Shop taking donations Volunteer operation gives kids a brighter holiday By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Since 1959, faces have changed, but the good will of a dedicated group of volunteers has kept the Arapahoe Santa Claus Shop operating and growing. Locations are now open for donations, accepted until Dec. 1. And, the call is out for volunteers to help clean and repair toys and get the shop ready, as well as operate it when parents come to get toys for kids who might not otherwise have a gift at Christmas. Volunteers need to register in advance by email, so they don’t have too many at any one time — or too few. (Space is limited.) Usually, it involves about 400 total, board chairman Shirley Nixon said, praising the generous community, which keeps the shop going year after year for needy children. Nixon said that in 2012, they had 2,699 names referred by schools, churches and caseworkers and served 2,400 whose parents appeared to shop at the shop site on South Datura Street. (Dec. 12 and 13 this year.) About 20 percent drop off each year, she observes. Toys are given to children in Littleton, Englewood and Sheridan schools only. The

names of children up to age 12 are referred by schools, churches, agencies and caseworkers and parents are given a 100-point card for each child. (“We can’t accept selfreferrals,” Nixon said.) The shop has a list of names at the door. Notices were sent to referring agencies on Oct. 18 and each generates its own list of families and numbers of children. Cards are distributed to parents or caretakers about a week before the shop opens. The shop is divided into departments, with a volunteer head of each. Some, such as those interested in dolls or bicycles, work through the year, cleaning and repairing and buying items they find at sales. Each item has points assigned. A Spanishspeaking volunteer is on hand for shopping days. New and gently used complete toys may be dropped off through Dec. 11 at numerous sites listed at arapahoesantashop.org. (Not accepted: VHS videos, guns of any kind, swords, broken or chipped toys, fast food toys, candles, clothes, puzzles over 100 pieces, adult makeup and perfume, adult books.) Cash donations are always welcome. Collection locations include: Littleton’s Town Hall Arts Center, Littleton and Englewood fire stations, Bradford Auto Body, Colorado Center for the Blind, Buck Recreation Center, Dr. Darlyn Loper DDS, Adventures in Dance, Littleton Woodlawn Floral, Broadway Estates Conoco, Downtown Dinners, Van Wyk Chiropractic Cen-

(All addresses online.) The organization, which gives about 50 bikes each year, was aided in 2013 by Eagle Scout Jack Eickelson, who collected 30 bikes and delivered them to Project ReCycle in Castle Rock, where he has worked on repair with the shop’s bicycle specialist, Steve Busey.

The organization will provide the Santa Claus Shop with 30 bikes for children when it opens. “We keep adding toys to the tables throughout the shop’s open time,” Nixon says. She regrets not getting to see the kids on Christmas. For information on volunteering for or donating to the Arapahoe Santa Claus Shop, see: arapahoesantashop.org. Advance registration is important.

‘Jazz Psalms Experience’ in Highlands Ranch Composer has finished more than 75 pieces By Sonya Ellingboe

Jaguars advance to soccer semis Rock Canyon edges Heritage 1-0 in 5A quarterfinal clash By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com Rock Canyon came out on top 1-0 in a hard-fought battle that lasted the full 80 minutes from starting whistle to gameending buzzer at the state Class 5A quarterfinal game with Heritage Nov. 2. “This was a battle and a heck of a game,” Jaguars coach Sean Henning said after the game at Shea Stadium. “Heritage is a very good soccer team. It was tough, but we just kept working and fortunately got the goal we needed to win the game.” Adam Buseck, Heritage coach, said his

team played well. “The kids did everything I asked them to do,” he said. “Rock Canyon is a good team. When they got a sort of soft goal early, they made it stand up for the win.” The win advances the Jaguars to the semifinals against Denver East. The Angels come into the game with a 10-5-3 record. They advanced this far with wins over Highlands Ranch, Rangeview and Liberty. Rock Canyon advances to the state semifinals with a 15-0-2 record. The Jaguars have already bested playoff opponents Doherty, Arapahoe and Heritage. Both state semifinals will be played at Legacy Stadium, which is adjacent to Cherokee Trail High School at 25901 E. Arapahoe Road. The first game of the evening matches Boulder (15-3) against Pine Creek

(15-1-2) at 4 p.m. at Legacy Stadium. Soccer purists should have enjoyed the Nov. 2 Rock Canyon-Heritage quarterfinal battle. The game was played at a racehorse tempo. The play moved from one end of the field to the other as, when a team took possession of the ball, they sought to establish control of the flow of the game to mount a successful scoring attack. “We came in working to maintain possession of the ball. That is our style of play. We made that work in the first half,” the Jaguar coach said after the game. “But Heritage stepped up the attack and the drive to challenge us in the second half. They pressed the attack frequently but our back line and goalkeeping kept the ball out of the net. The defense has been solid all year, and I believe this is our ninth or tenth shut-

out this season.” Both teams created scoring opportunities. But, at both ends of the field, the defenders and goalie combined to keep shots out of the net. The only exception came about midway through the first half when Gabe Krzywdzinski drilled a line-drive shot at goal from about 35 yards out. “The long shot is sort of my specialty,” Krzywdzinski said after the game. “Today, we were pushing up field when I had the ball come to me across my body. I settled it on the ground and, when I looked up, I saw there were no defenders in front of me and the goalie was off line so I took the shot. I didn’t aim. I just shot a prayer at the goal.” The junior midfielder said seeing the ball go into the net was the best feeling he has had in his life.

Mcpherson’s preps career nearly perfect Creek senior garners four state tennis titles By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com There are trite notions that nothing or nobody is perfect. Connor McPherson admits he isn’t perfect but it’s pretty hard to argue that his recently completed high school career wasn’t near-perfect. McPherson won his second consecutive state No. 2 singles championship Oct. 12 at Gates Tennis Center after capturing the No. 3 doubles titles as a freshman and sophomore. The Cherry Creek High School senior was selected as the Colorado Community Media South Metro Tennis Player of the Year. Cherry Creek set a team scoring record in winning the state championship for the 38th time in 41 years, and McPherson added a fourth state title to his resume. “There was definitely a lot more pres-

sure this year because everybody was talking about it (winning a fourth title),” he said. “It was definitely in the back of my mind, but I tried to keep it in the back of my mind, focus on what I had to do and try not to make it too big of a deal. “It was the perfect season. I couldn’t have seen it going any better. Sweeping state hasn’t happened since 1998. To be able to go out senior year like that was just incredible.” McPherson, however, wasn’t flawless. He finished the season 20-1, with his one loss coming against eventual Class 4A No. 2 singles champion Willie Gold of Kent Denver. “Definitely that helped me,” said McPherson. “I lost at least a match every year and it kind of wakes you up, makes you realize you have to keep working hard and it’s not going to be easy. It pushed me to work that much harder.” McPherson was unable to play No. 1 singles this fall when Zach Fryer returned to Creek for his senior season after playing USTA events. Fryer was unbeaten, and was the state’s No. 2 singles champion as a Creek sophomore and captured the state

No. 1 singles title last month. “Of course I wanted to be No. 1,” confessed McPherson. “I tried hard for it. Zach’s my good friend. I’m happy he came back and played with us. He helped the team out a lot. “He and I definitely pushed each other, especially in practice. We were always working to make each other better. We definitely have that competitive edge with each other but we just pushed each other and made each other better.” McPherson started playing tennis with his dad when he was 10 years ago and then a few years later had to tab tennis rather than baseball as the sport he wanted to pursue. “I feel like I have improved immensely since my freshman year,” said McPherson. “The best way to improve is hitting with people that are better than you. “That’s what I got a chance to do through my four years, and playing doubles was great for my game. You get all aspects of the game through doubles. Even though I wouldn’t be able to be at the top position, being able to play with the best of the best is pretty cool.”

Rocky Vista University professor Rebecca Bowden gets her head shaved by Barb Dooley, a stage-4 cancer survivor and stylist for Floyd’s 99 Barbershop, during a fundraising event for breast cancer research Nov. 1. Photo by Chris Michlewicz

The bald and the beautiful Rocky Vista shows support for student battling cancer By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews. com There were so many bald heads under Rocky Vista University’s roof, one could have easily mistaken it as a convention for the follically challenged. Instead, it was a head-shaving event in support of Michelle Valentine, a student at the college of osteopathic medicine on Chambers Road north of E-470. Thousands of dollars were raised for the Susan G. Komen foundation, and the camaraderie among the students was further solidified Nov. 1. Valentine, 37, was diagnosed with breast cancer in June. Her chemotherapy treatments have left her completely bald, but she rocks the look with confidence. When the school

wanted to organize a fundraising event, the head-shaving event was a natural choice. Valentine elected to have the money go specifically toward research aimed at helping breast cancer patients under 40, a population she says is underrepresented. The second floor of the university, packed with supporters, buzzed with excitement, nervousness and the sound of clippers run by a handful of stylists from Floyd’s 99 Barbershop. Women lined up to get thin pink extensions in their hair and dozens of men waited to their locks chopped. Some know Valentine, and some don’t. Christopher Gilsdorf, a secondyear Rocky Vista student from Fort Collins, had his hair cut by Nester Bustos, a Floyd’s 99 stylist who participates in at least one community charity event per year. Gilsdorf, who says he knows Valentine “a little,” raised $50 for the cause. Aside from Valentine, the star of the

head-shaving event was Dr. Rebecca Bowden, a Rocky Vista professor who raised more than $7,500 and faced the clippers. It was her first time going bald and she admitted to the crowd on hand that it “felt good.” Bowden, who has had Valentine in some of her classes, succinctly summed up her line of thinking about donating time, money and hair on behalf of Valentine. “We’re family,” Bowden said of the small, tight-knit school that opened in 2008. Valentine must undergo radiation treatment and surgery, but her spirits are bright. She was uplifted by the number of people who got involved in the head-shaving event and described it as “one of the coolest things of my life.” She said it speaks to the character of medical students and their willingness to step up for others in need.
