Voters could change charter Would require mayor to be elected by a true majority By Jane Reuter

Board member drafting policy in wake of vote Questions, concerns revolve around school board vacancy process

Charter continues on Page 12

Spurlock GOP pick for sheriff

By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Concern about the process used to appoint the newest Douglas County School Board member has prompted board member Judi Reynolds to draft guidelines for future appointments. Reynolds was one of two board members who voted against Rich Robbins, who was picked to fill an empty board seat. Reynolds said her concern is with the process — not the person — and extends beyond the swift, silent March 25 vote for Robbins’ appointment. She hopes to introduce her proposed policy during the next general board meeting on April 15. “The whole process in my mind wasn’t as laid out as I thought it should be,” she said. “I’m working on what I hope will end up being board policy to standardize the entire process, not just that final part of the process, to make it more transparent.” Robbins, a UPS Freight supervisor who supports the board’s education reform policies, was among six finalists interviewed during a special March 25 meeting. He was the only candidate nominated and was chosen on a 4-2 vote, with Reynolds and Meghann Silverthorn in opposition. Board president Kevin Larsen did not open the motion to discussion, and the other board members offered no comment. Some of other board members, finalists and audience members were surprised, believing the nomination would be discussed and that other candidates might also be proposed before a final vote was taken. “It was abrupt,” Silverthorn said. “I thought we should have had more con-

Lone Tree residents will vote on a charter amendment May 6 designed to ensure the fairness of the city’s future mayoral elections. The proposed change would prevent a mayor from being elected by a small percentage of the voters, instead ensuring a majority vote. “We’ve never had this occur,” city spokeswoman Kristen Knoll said, but added: “Currently, the mayor can be elected by a plurality of the votes versus a majority.” That would occur if more than two people ever sought the top council spot. “If we have four or five people interested in running for mayor, you could potentially have one of those candidates elected without a majority of the votes because there are so many to choose from,”

Other hopefuls unhappy with system at General Assembly By Ryan Boldrey

Photo by Jane Reuter versation around things like qualifications, just a discussion of any kind. I don’t know what other people’s opinions were on any of the nominees because we didn’t talk about it. I wasn’t ready to make a determination.” Silverthorn said the two-part interview process leading up to Robbins’ appointment was “great.” “I wish we would have followed that through to a more logical conclusion,” she said. When board member Carrie Mendoza was appointed in March 2013, then-president John Carson asked for discussion about her nomination three times. Five of the sitting board members commented before the unanimous vote for Mendoza was taken. Mendoza also was the second candidate considered; a nomination for Reynolds did not receive enough “aye” votes to move forward. Board member Jim Geddes agreed the recent vote was quick, but said he saw no need for discussion.

“I voted for the guy I thought would be most in line with my philosophy on things,” he said. “If somebody was not in favor it, it would have been their responsibility to begin the discussion. “Some folks have suggested there might be some collusion going on. That’s just not the case. It’s unfortunate it made it look like we were maybe treating it lightly. But I think all of us were very serious about evaluating each candidate and making our choice very carefully.” Robbins’ appointment was particularly sensitive for some, given the close nature of the 2013 school board race. Several community members had lobbied the board to select someone with different viewpoints. Finalist David Ray, a former Douglas County School District principal, said he could have filled that role. “I think that’s what’s desperately needed,” he said. “I’ve never seen our district, Board continues on Page 12

Douglas County Undersheriff Tony Spurlock doubled the number of votes garnered by both of his opponents at the Republican General Assembly and will now run uncontested for the office of sheriff on the party’s primary ballot come June. After that, Spurlock will face off against Libertarian Brock McCoy in November for the right to take over for term-limited Sheriff David Weaver. No Democrat has announced a candidacy for sheriff at Spurlock this time. Receiving 233 votes from delegates, the undersheriff picked up 50.4 percent of the vote at the March 22 assembly, while Coroner Lora Thomas earned 24.8 percent and Castle Rock Police Cmdr.

Douglas job growth ranks second nationally Federal report takes look at 334 populous counties By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia@coloradocommunitymedia.com The number of jobs in Douglas County grew by 5.9 percent in the fiscal year ending in September 2013, second only to Fort Bend County in Texas, according to a study of populous counties reported by the U.S. Department of Labor. The county ranked No. 2 out of 334 large counties with 75,000 or more jobs across the nation. Fort Bend’s job numbers grew by 6 percent between September 2012 and September 2013, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics report. The national average increase came in at 1.7 percent, the bureau reported on March 19. Douglas County’s increase resulted in the county having 104,100 jobs in September 2013, the BLS reported. “Douglas County invests in and fosters the foundations that allow businesses to succeed: an exceptional transportation infrastructure, public safety and a business-friendly regulatory environment,” Douglas County Commissioner Jill Repella said in a news release. At a March 24 land use meeting, Repella said the county’s incentives are “paying

off” and she expects the statistics to climb next year. “There is a lot of stuff in the pipeline that’s not included (in the report),” Repella said. “Who knows? Maybe next year, we’ll be No. 1.” Seven other Colorado counties made the top 100 in the job growth rate: Weld County came in seventh with a 5 percent growth rate; Adams County ranked 16th with 4.3 percent; Arapahoe was 25th with 3.7 percent; Denver notched 28th place with 3.6 percent; Boulder was 54th with 3.1 percent; Larimer ranked 85th with 2.5 percent; and El Paso was 97th with 2.3 percent. Jefferson County was in 120th place with a growth rate of 2 percent. Job numbers declined

in 44 of the counties studied over the one-year period, according to the BLS report. Average weekly wages increased by 1.9 percent nationwide to $922. Douglas County was a m o n g t h o s e with a decline in average wages, in a field where the worst performance w a s in Pinellas Count y , LOG ON & Fla., VOTE TODAY! where wages OR COMPLETE THE BALLOT ON PAGE 28 fell 4.3 percent.

one-year period, dropping to $889, below the nationwide average of $922. The decrease in Douglas County’s average wage was “due to changes in the Management of Companies and Enterprises industry. The wages in this industry fluctuate wildly each quarter,” Nancy Gedeon, an economic and demographic analyst for the county, wrote in an email. Wages in that industry increased 362 percent from 2011 to 2012, which caused a 48 percent increase in the average wages of all industries in the county, she said. “My guess is that these business executives receive annual bonuses,” Gedeon said in an email when asked why the wages for that industry fluctuate so wildly. “Also, the average wage for this industry is at least (four) times higher than the average for all industries combined.” “When the Management of Companies and Enterprises industry is removed from the total, wages in Douglas County increased about 2 percent from the third quarter 2012 to the third quarter 2013,” Gedeon wrote. According to a recent report from the Colorado Department of labor, accounting for data through the end of February, Douglas County’s unemployment average checks in at 5.3 percent, lower than the state average of 6.1 percent and national average of 6.7 percent.

Students’ excitement invigorates classroom Bye-bye boredom, says winner of Apple Award By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Highlands Ranch fifth-grade teacher Jenny Henry has turned the reins of education over to her students. “I’m no longer the expert,” said Henry, a Copper Mesa Elementary School teacher whose teaching style recently was recognized with a Douglas County School District Apple Award. “We know kids are capable of wonderful things. But you have no idea, when you hand that power over to them, just how they take off.” Henry, a 12-year DCSD teacher, said she embraced a shift in teaching that encourages more student collaboration and less teacherfocused instruction. “It made sense to me,” she said. “It just

spoke to the core of who I am and what I believe about what we give to kids, our role as teachers, how important what we’re doing is. I plowed ahead with the idea of kids being more empowered in the classroom, myself taking on the role of a facilitator instead of just delivering the information to kids.” Henry describes the change as a “power shift” that excited both the students and her. “There’s not a single kid who’s bored anymore; they’re practically sprinting to get in the door,” she said. “Three of my kids were practically in tears because they said, `We don’t want spring break.’ That tells me we’re doing something right.” Henry lit that spark at the beginning of the 2013-14 academic year by asking all her students to answer a single, profound question: Why does the world need me? The responses she got delighted and amazed her. One student said she would start her own

Man guilty in mortgage-lending scheme Staff report A federal grand jury has found a Littleton man guilty for his role in a scheme that defrauded mortgage lenders on more than 30 real estate purchases in Parker. Peter Capra, 56, was indicted in April 2012 for a ruse that prosecutors say netted $11 million over three years. Following an eight-day trial in U.S. District Court, a grand jury found Capra guilty of 14 counts of wire fraud, two counts of mail fraud, and 10 counts of money laundering. He will be sentenced May 30 and faces up to 20 years in federal prison on each wire fraud count. Capra, president of Golden Design Group, Inc., was arrested in connection with applications for residential mortgage loans and related documents associated with real estate purchases including, but not limited to, 33 properties in Parker. From January 2005 through July 2008, Capra, along with others, structured transactions involving GDG homes to allow

business, and donate the proceeds to a hospital. Another wanted to create and sell a miniature solar-powered water purifier on a buyone, get-one-free basis, so the second purifier could be donated to a country in need. Another wanted to explore the merits of cross-breeding a salamander and a newt. “I never told him that wasn’t possible,” Henry said. “I just allowed him to explore that. “I’ve set up a room where it’s safe to explore and take those chances. It’s OK to fail.” Henry, the 37-year-old single mom of a toddler, said her love of teaching has reached a new level. “I think this has definitely brought back that passion and excitement for teaching,” she said. Reinvigorated as she is about teaching, Henry never thought it would lead to an award. “It’s an honor to be a teacher,” she said,

buyers to receive substantial amounts of the lenders’ money at the time of closing without the knowledge of the lenders. He also sold a large volume of homes to otherwise unwilling or unqualified buyers. Loan applications for the buyers were submitted through several different mortgage brokers that assisted with providing, or at least failing to question the accuracy of, false information submitted in connection with the applications, including materially false and fraudulent representations about the buyers’ income, liabilities, source of down payment, and intent to occupy the properties as their primary residences. At closing, funds ranging from $85,000 to over $200,000 were distributed to the buyers in ways that prevented the lenders from discovering that these funds were actually going to the buyers; these funds were not disclosed in the HUD-1 closing statements or were disguised in those statements.

Former school board president seeks CU-Regents seat in 2014 Carson would take 6th District seat held by recently elected DougCo board member By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com Former Douglas County School Board president John Carson is running for a spot on the University of Colorado-Boulder board of regents during the November 2014 election. Carson would essentially trade seats in 2015 with sitting District 6 CU-Regent Jim Geddes, recently elected to the Douglas County School board. Geddes does not intend to seek another term on the CU board. The Highlands Ranch Republican served on the school board for eight years, the last four as its president. He left his term-limited seat in November. Kevin Larsen has since been appointed president. Carson also is a graduate of CU, with degrees in law and political science. “The University of Colorado has always been a great love of mine,” he said, “and I want to work to continue to prove it.” Aurora Democrat Naquetta Ricks and Fort Lupton Republican Paul Schauer also have filed their intent to seek the District 6 seat with the Colorado Secretary of State. Carson cited rising tuition as his top concern. The CU-Regents voted March 21 to raise tuition 3.3 percent for the coming academic year. “The cost for an in-state student at CU

is close to $30,000 a year, if you count room and board and tuition,” he said. “It’s gone up 50 percent in the last six years. Middle-class kids are faced with having a tremendous debt burden if they go to college and Carson don’t come from a wealthy household. “I think we need to take a look at the budget situation at the university, and make sure we get the university on a budget that reflects middle class families and their priorities.” Carson and Geddes, a surgeon and Sedalia resident, both want to ensure students at the traditionally liberal college are exposed to a variety of political viewpoints. “I want to make sure the university offers a good, balanced education, and a lot of intellectual diversity,” he said. Geddes, elected to the DCSD board in November 2013, said Carson has his support. “He is a strong conservative,” he said. “He shares my concerns about the cost of higher education, and that the quality of education at CU and similar universities would be greatly enhanced if we could have more intellectual diversity of our faculty.” While on the DSCD board, Carson participated in and oversaw the introduction of many of the district’s education-reform policies, including the voucher, or Choice Scholarship, program, teacher pay-forperformance and the end of the longstanding agreement with the teachers’ union. He also helped implement budget changes designed to build up the district’s financial reserves.

Pilot killed in plane crash Small aircraft avoids businesses, homes before crashing into open field By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia@coloradocommunitymedia.com A small plane smoldered in an open field — surrounded by packed subdivisions, stores full of shoppers and roadways crawling with cars on a Saturday afternoon — after crashing and bursting into flames, leaving the pilot, 60-year-old James Peoples of Littleton, dead. Crews were on the scene at about 3 p.m. March 29 after the plane, an experimental Sonerai II, nosedived into the grassy area behind the SuperTarget in Highlands Ranch, near C-470 and Lucent Boulevard. The crash site is about eight miles southwest of Centennial Airport and the plane went down under unknown circumstances, FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer said in an email. There was a small fire around the aircraft when it hit, Douglas County Sheriff’s deputy Chad Teller said. “It came straight down and crashed and caught on fire. I don’t know if the pilot died on impact or in the fire,” Teller said. The plane took a sharp turn and went straight down, said Highlands Ranch resident Landon Harmon, who saw the plane’s descent. First responders were there within a minute, he said. “It was like a flying saucer, it was so weird,” Harmon said. It looked like the pilot was trying to

land the aircraft and that the plane was on its belly in the field, he said. “I kind of had this idea that I was the only person in the world that saw this, because no one stopped,” Harmon said. “My first idea was to run out there to help, but there was a barbed wire fence in the way. I saw other people run out to help, but there wasn’t much they could do.” An employee at the H2O Car Wash, one of the closest buildings to the crash site, also said it appeared the plane was trying to land. Some employees went to help extinguish the fire from the crash, he said. The pilot missed several shopping centers and subdivisions — something the employee, who did not want to be named, said was “pretty heroic.” “That area is pretty populated, not just with business but it’s a big residential area,” Teller said. “I don’t know what his intent was, if he was trying to land or what, but we’re fortunate that he was able to land in that area. It was a bad situation, but it could have been much worse.” The plane, from the Sonerai series of homebuilt aircrafts, was 18 feet 10 inches in length and 5 feet 5 inches in height, with an 18-foot-8-inch wingspan. Deborah Smith, a spokeswoman for the Centennial Airport, said she could not confirm whether the pilot took off from the airport before the crash but said the aircraft did have contact with its tower around 2:32 p.m. The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating, with the NTSB as the lead agency. A media contact with the NTSB did not immediately return a request for comment.

As president of the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce for 10 years, John Brackney wore many hats — literally and figuratively. During a farewell address of sorts, four days after announcing his resignation, Brackney used all manner of headwear to tell the story of what the chamber has meant to him. Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon and Littleton Mayor Phil Cernanec were among the dozens of public officials and chamber members gathered for the March 28 event at the chamber’s headquarters in Centennial. Brackney did not discuss why he suddenly resigned March 24, nor did he talk about what his plans are. Neither was there any talk of the process for finding a replacement. This day was really about chamber members taking their hats off to Brackney. “If you’ve had a great leader, that leader has left you in dramatically better shape than when he came,” said Rick Whipple, CEO of WhippleWood CPAs and the chairman-elect of the chamber’s board of directors. “He has left the chamber in great shape.” The presentation began with Brackney unloading two large bags of hats, a motley assortment he had accumulated over the years, on a pair of tables. Over the next hour, he would wear them all. There was the multicolored hat that he said represents fun. There was the baseball cap with the City of Centennial’s logo — a symbol that came to be after much hard work by Brackney and other chamber members helped secure the city’s incorporation in 2001. There was a hat with dreadlocks spill-

ing out, one the former Arapahoe County Commissioner said represents diversity. “We should respect diversity,” Brackney said. “All these hats stand for different cultures and backgrounds.” Brackney shared symbolism in each hat. Some more examples: • A cowboy hat: “We’re straight shooters.” • A hard hat: “Please build something at the chamber.” • A winter cap: “When’s it’s cold, put on a hat and keep going.” • Swimming goggles: “Sometimes we don’t want to wear a hat.”

County approves business fee waivers Two operations get breaks from commissioners By Hannah Garcia

hgarcia@coloradocommunitymedia.com The Douglas County commissioners unanimously approved two fee waiver requests at their March 25 land use meeting. Fee waivers are one of the incentives offered by the county for businesses looking to move to the county or expand within its borders. The commissioners waived $39.854.29 in fees for Colorado Studios, a company specializing in manufacture and operation of mobile TV production units. The company is responsible for 4,000 live sporting events, including the Colorado Rockies and the Colorado Avalanche. The fee waivers apply to a planned move to the HighField Business Park in the Meridian area, where the company will build a 39,877-square-foot assembly and production facility. The company hopes to move in January, general manager Phillip Garvin said. The company is currently located in Denver and will employ 45 full-time workers at the new site with an average salary of $72,762, according to Garvin. Commissioner Jill Repella said the company would add to Douglas County’s “diverse economy.”

“This is a very unique thing that you do,” she said. The company also applied for a complete waiver of personal property tax and construction fee waivers. The commission also approved $6,511.31 in building permit fee waivers for Vantiv Inc., a financial services business headquartered near Cincinnati. Vantiv employs about 2,700 nationally and 30 in Douglas County, according to planning documents. The company is considering an expansion by leasing a 32,000-square-foot building at 367 Inverness Drive, increasing its workforce with 120 full-time IT and financial support jobs with an average annual salary of $100,000. The company also plans to enter a three-year, $50 million consulting contract that will add 75 contractor jobs. “The project investment is estimated at $6 (million) at this time with an initial $1.8 million capital investment in personal property to facilitate this proposed expansion,” Victoria Horton, director of the SC&H Group, which is assisting in the transition, wrote in a letter to the county. Vantiv also is requesting other local incentives, including a $500,000 cash grant, personal property tax abatement, discounted utility rates, 100 percent relief from local sales taxes and a waiver of all associated permitting fees. Those issues have not been decided yet.

Gun lawsuit trial begins Judge’s ruling could impact recently enacted laws in Colorado

“There is no justification for such a burden, particularly because this statute doesn’t even work,”

By Vic Vela

Richard Westfall, attorney

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com Colorado’s new gun laws are “burdensome” and “a symbolic gesture that does not improve public safety,” a lawyer said on the first day of testimony of a trial that takes on the legislation passed in 2013. But a state’s attorney said that the laws do nothing to take away guns from lawabiding citizens and that the motivation behind the legislation is to curb mass shootings like the ones that occurred at Columbine High School and from inside an Aurora movie theater. “In response to these events, Colorado’s elected representatives made a policy decision to pass two pieces of legislation that appropriately balances the state’s public safety concerns with the respect of the Second Amendment rights of citizens,” said Deputy Attorney General Matthew Grove. The lawyers’ arguments opened a twoweek trial over a lawsuit filed against the state and Democratic Gov. John Hicken-

looper that alleges that two recently enacted gun laws violate gun owners’ Second Amendment right to bear arms. At question are laws that expand background checks on gun sales in Colorado and limit the number of rounds that an ammunition magazine can hold to 15. The lawsuit is being brought by gun rights groups and is being heard in a Denver U.S. District Court by Judge Marcia Kreiger. A successful effort by the plaintiffs could put the new laws, which were signed by Hickenlooper last year, in jeopardy. Debate on the bills last year caused highly-charged partisan rancor at the Capitol between Democrats who backed the efforts and Republicans who uniformly voted against them. The bills also led to last year’s recall elections, where three Democratic lawmakers either lost or resigned

Committee rejects audit for state health insurance exchange Marketplace has already cleared four independent audits By Vic Vela vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com A bill that would have allowed for Colorado’s health insurance marketplace to face a state audit died on a party-line vote in a Democrat-controlled Senate committee on March 26. The bill had received overwhelming bipartisan support in the House, but the Senate Health and Human Services Committee rejected the legislation, with Democrats arguing that Connect for Health Colorado is already being scrutinized by independent auditors as well as the federal government. “I’m worried that we’re... throwing more government at them when they have already hired private people to look at their performance,” said Sen. Irene Aguilar, DDenver, the committee chairwoman. Connect for Health Colorado is the state’s health insurance marketplace for Coloradans who wish to shop for insurance opportunities that were made possible through the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare. Earlier this year, the nonpartisan Legislative Audit Committee recommended on a 7-1 vote to grant the state auditor the ability to conduct a full performance audit of the health benefit exchange. The health exchange has received several millions of dollars in grant funding and Republican bill sponsors told the committee that it would be a good idea to make sure the money is being used correctly. “One hundred and seventy-seven million dollars in federal grants is a lot of money and I think it’s prudent for Colorado to empower our state auditor to perform a performance audit,” Sen. David Balmer, R-Centennial, told the committee. State Auditor Dianne Ray testified that any time a new program operates with a

large amount of money behind it and it uses that money in a short period of time, it’s a good idea to examine its practices. Right now, Ray said her office is limited in the type of an audit it can conduct on the Colorado Health Network. For example, her office would be unable to look at things like information technology issues and whether Connect for Health’s enrollment projections are “reasonable.” “We can’t look at anything outside of just the moneys,” she said. But Connect for Health Colorado CEO Patty Fontneau said the exchange has had four “clean” independent audits already. She also told the committee that the Internal Revenue Service has done a review of the exchange and that the benefit marketplace also reports to the federal government on a monthly basis. Sen. Jeanne Nicholson, D-Black Hawk, said it would be premature for the state to launch an audit of a new program, especially since auditors wouldn’t have any “best practice” measures for which to provide a comparison. “I think that they already have a number of audits that have demonstrated their performances have been far better than most of the health exchanges in the other states,” Nicholson said. Democratic Sens. Linda Newell of Littleton and John Kefalas of Fort Collins joined Nicholson and Aguilar in voting against the bill. Republican Sens. Owen Hill of Colorado Springs, Larry Crowder of Alamosa and Kevin Lundberg of Berthoud all voted no. Republicans insisted that the legislation wasn’t a commentary on the Affordable Care Act, which their party has adamantly opposed, both here and nationally. “It’s important to separate the oranges from the apples,” said Sen. Kevin Lundberg, R-Berthoud, a committee member. “This is not a statement for or against the exchange or for or against the national Obamacare program.” However, after the vote, Lundberg blasted Democrats on the committee for killing the legislation, “in an attempt to cover up the failures of ObamaCare.”

their seats. The new background checks law expands a previous statute that requires gun shops to conduct a criminal history prior to the sale of any firearm. The updated law expands that to all sales and transfers, regardless of where or how they occur. Plaintiffs’ attorney Richard Westfall argued that the new background checks law is unreasonable and unenforceable. He took particular issue with a part of the law that prohibits the transfer of guns among friends and family members, without having background checks conducted. “There is no justification for such a burden, particularly because this statute doesn’t even work,” Westfall said. Westfall also took on the magazine limit ban, which bans new sales and transfers of high-capacity magazines. The law does

not apply to existing magazines that may already be in a person’s possession. Westfall argued that the law is unenforceable because “tens of millions of magazines over 15 rounds exist.” He also said the Legislature was “moved by high-profile mass shootings” and that the laws are “a symbolic gesture that do not improve public safety.” “The question is whether the magazine ban will have any positive impact on public safety at any level,” he said. But Grove pushed back against those arguments. He contends that expanding background checks to all potential gun buyers “makes it more difficult for a prohibited person from acquiring firearms.” In defending the new magazine limit, Grove said that restricting the number of rounds that a killer can hold limits the damage that he or she can inflict. “Reloading creates a crucial window of opportunity for a victim to escape or to disarm a gunman,” Grove said. And Grove said that the laws are not aimed at limiting the possession of guns by a law-abiding citizen. “It does not take these items away from people who already own them. It does not restrict their lawful use. It does not limit the choices of firearms Coloradans can carry,” Grove said.

opinions / yours and ours

Blaming is obstacle on road to accountability “It wasn’t me!” “It’s not my fault!” “I can’t believe they did that!” To me, personal accountability is right up there with character, integrity, and honesty on the value scale. When we make mistakes, and we will, it is our responsibility to own them, fix the issue if possible, move on and learn from each one. As for me, I am doing a lot of learning these days … if you know what I mean. What we have to avoid is the “Blame Game” when it comes to blaming ourselves or others. Whether we try and hide from our errors out of shame, or we have developed a coping mechanism over time that allows us to point the finger of blame at others, it’s time to step up and take ownership of everything we do. And by the way, some of you may have heard or seen this before, but when we point the finger of blame at someone else, there are still three

fingers pointing back in our direction. Do others need to be held accountable? Absolutely. We all make mistakes and err from time to time. And in each case the level of conversation or appropriateness of a discussion around the event will be driven or dictated by the depth of the relationship between the people involved. When we have the strength and confidence to hold ourselves accountable for our own actions, it becomes so much easier to talk with others about their accountability and

letter to the editor Parents’ feedback matters most

I am writing in response to Dave Usecheck’s letter to the editor published March 27, titled “Survey needs to reach parents, non-parents.” There is a reason that businesses require a user code from a sales receipt in order to complete a customer satisfaction survey. Someone who doesn’t have direct shopping experience at Walgreen’s (for example), cannot provide useful feedback to the store, no matter how many times they drive by. Likewise, parents have direct experience with and knowledge of their children’s schools and, if they are involved enough, district policies that the rest of the community does not, no matter how many children knock on their doors selling magazines. If our school district wants to see how paid advertising can affect the public’s perception of the district, they

got that in the last election. If they want to see how their policies and actions are truly affecting students, they must ask the parents, and the parents alone. That said, Mr. Usecheck should be glad to hear that parents who have found the district “reforms” harmful to their children, HAVE recently found some common ground with BoE supporters. After the School Board voted 6-1 to drastically reduce public comments at board meetings, some of their most outspoken supporters are agreeing that this silencing of the public is wrong. I hope that this small piece of common ground can help end the heated rhetoric and name-calling, and provide a foundation upon which to discuss differences of opinion respectfully.

You build them up, they let you down Who and what can you count on? Who and what can you rely upon, each and every day? (Let’s leave God out of this.) It’s a good question. Even the best of friends flake out now and then. The best appliances go on the blink. Technology is always vulnerable. Your car can’t be trusted 100 percent of the time. Your cookies are broken. There are bones in your burrito. Meteorologists? They’re good, but they’re not perfect. I have never complained. Most of the time they are right on it. I always keep in mind that they are not predicting the weather on my street. I can’t count on my favorite actor to always, always be brilliant. The same goes for my favorite musicians. When I was a teenager, if a group had two hits, they would record an album. There would be a hit on each side, and the rest of the songs would be fillers. Most of the time the fillers were duds. Sometimes my favorite group — like Peter, Paul, and Mary — would record a song from the drecky settlings of a songwriter who missed the boat, missed the bus, missed the velocipede. Please don’t make me listen to “I Dig Rock and Roll Music.” My theory is that they thought their day had come and gone, that folk music’s day had come and gone, and that they wanted to look like they were still valid. Instead of singing a rock and roll song, they elected to be rock and roll sycophants. That’s unforgivable. On top of that, they sing the word “dig.” The song came out in 1968. “Dig” had come and gone years before. It made me sad. Unfortunately the damn thing was a hit. I freeze when I hear it, and leap to change it.

One time I changed the station, and the second worse song ever was on. Jefferson Airplane may have taken its name from a slang term for “a paper match splint that holds a marijuana joint that has been smoked too short to hold without burning the fingers.” One disc jockey said they were named after an airplane that was displayed in front of Jefferson High School. Either way, it was a good name. Was. Then someone decided to befriend “Star Wars” and renamed the group “Starship.” That still irritates me. Their first single was awful. Unfortunately it was a hit too. Elton John’s pal Bernie Taupin was involved. Please. Please do not play “We Built This City (on Rock and Roll”). It was all wrong, arrogant, a presumption, badly timed, a once great band’s resignation to the slide back down the hill. It reminded of Academy Awardwinning actor Ray Milland appearing in “The Man With Two Heads.” If it had been at the start of his career, OK. It wasn’t. The other head belonged to black football star Roosevelt Grier. What was it like on the set? Was it non-stop laughing? I’ll tell you what I can count on every day.

responsibility. It’s when we act one way and think that it would be OK to absolve ourselves from being held accountable, yet we feel like we can point out the erroneous ways of others, is where we get ourselves in trouble. Accountability sometimes carries a negative connotation, but it doesn’t always have to. People just don’t like being held accountable; it is a strong word for sure and does carry a heavy weight or even burden for some people. Accountability should be a positive word and used to motivate, inspire, and encourage ourselves and others. When used negatively, accountability can become a weapon. When it is used positively it can serve as a tool and launching pad for greatness. The next time you consider pointing your finger somewhere, point it in the direction of where you want to go instead

of pointing it at where you have been or at someone else. Now when you do this, point your finger towards your destination, you will still have three fingers pointing back at yourself. This will remind you that you are the one responsible and accountable for reaching and exceeding your goals. So are you playing the “Blame Game” or are you using accountability as a tool to help drive you toward the achievement of your goals and dreams? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail. com. And when we leverage accountability as a tool and not a weapon, it really will be a better than good week.

Today’s snow is tomorrow’s water Nothing beats a week of gray skies and stuffy suits in Washington like a sunny day in Colorado’s high country. A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to strap on some snowshoes for a short hike on Berthoud Pass with local water managers and staff from the Natural Resources Conservation Service. They were taking a manual reading of the state’s snowpack and checking the automatic SNOTEL measurement device. Undersecretary Robert Bonnie, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s top environmental and natural resource official, and the man who oversees NRCS, also came along. These snowpack measurement systems, some that date back to the 1900s, are a critical part of the Snow Survey and Water Supply Forecasting program that Colorado water officials rely on to anticipate river flows in the spring when the snow melts and calculate how much water will run off into rivers and reservoirs. Our state’s farmers and ranchers depend on these forecasts to decide how much and what type of crops to plant, while metropolitan leaders use the data to decide how best to meet their needs in the coming years and to prepare for potential flooding. Beyond Colorado, these measurements are important for states downstream that depend on our watersheds. Colorado contains nine major watersheds, each with its own snowfall patterns and obligations to other states. While some of these water sources may be at 100 percent, in other regions the levels may be less than half

of the normal supply. Many of the state’s water rights agreements are predicated on the level of snowpack making the accuracy of these measurements particularly important. Recently, however, funding for the Snow Survey and Water Supply Forecasting Program was threatened by budget cuts and sequestration. Colorado communities from across the state shared their strong concerns that cutting funding to this program would damage the accuracy of the measurements and reduce the effectiveness of this vital planning tool. In response to these concerns, we joined forces with Colorado’s water community, Sen. Mark Udall, and Congressman Scott Tipton to urge the NRCS to reconsider the cuts. After working with local communities, water managers, and the NRCS, we secured funding for the program for this winter. In addition, we secured funding in congress for the next fiscal year. We are not out of the woods yet though. Bennet continues on Page 9

Party divisions apparent in budget fight Democrats focus on education, but not enough says GOP By Vic Vela

vvela@coloradocommunitymedia.com The Democrat-majority state House passed a $23 billion budget on March 28 that will increase funding for education, aid flood and wildfire victims, and will bolster reserves by stashing away millions in “rainy day” dollars. Report But only one Republican voted for the annual “long bill” as GOP members blasted Democrats for not funding specific measures that are of importance to the minority party, including money for increased drunken driving penalties and what they are saying is not enough money for K-12 education. The passage of the 2014-15 fiscal year budget came on the heels of several hours of debate that spanned two days as lawmakers wrangled over a long bill that comes with more dollars than last year’s, thanks in part to a state economy that continues to gain steam. “We are in a better place, we can make investments, we can start putting back the pieces that were harmed in the great recession,” said House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver. The bill includes a general fund budget — made up of tax revenue that supports the operations of most state departments — of $8.7 billion, a $600 million increase over the current year’s budget. About half of the general fund dollars support K-12 and higher education, both of which will receive significant increases in the new budget. Through the annual school finance act and the Student Success Act — school funding measures that are making their

way through the Legislature — the budget will pump about $200 million in additional K-12 education funding that increase per-pupil funding by $200 per student. That money will also be used to enroll more kids in preschool and full-day kindergarten, as well as to fund English language learning programs. Higher education will receive an additional $100 million in funding, the majority of which will go toward student financial aid. “We are making a huge investment in our K-12 system,” Ferrandino said. “This is a responsible budget that sets us up for success in the future.” The budget also includes an additional $78 million in disaster relief funds. Money will be available to provide tax relief for homeowners who were impacted by last year’s floods and wildfires, something that was a top priority for the Legislature coming into this year’s session. In addition, the long bill includes 2.5 percent pay increases for state employees and Medicaid providers. Gov. John Hickenlooper will see a few things in the budget that he will surely use in his re-election campaign literature. That includes money that will update outdated computer technology at the Department of Motor Vehicles, which aims to significantly reduce wait times at DMV offices. And the state’s emergency reserves will increase from 5 percent under this year to 6.5 percent, under the new budget. That was a key piece to Hickenlooper’s budget request to the Joint Budget Committee, prior to the start of the legislative session. The budget also includes about $50 million that will be set aside for bills that are currently going through legislative process.

“This is a responsible budget that sets us up for success in the future.” House Speaker Mark Ferrandino Parties clash over funding areas

Lawmakers tend to fight more when there is an abundance of money, rather than during lean budget years. And that was the case in House on March 27 and 28, when more than 40 budget amendments were introduced by lawmakers who were seeking funding for various priorities. They included failed efforts by Republicans to set aside $1.7 million to pay for initial funding of a bill that would create a felony DUI in Colorado for repeat cases of drunken driving. That effort is being sponsored by Rep. Mark Waller, R-Colorado Springs, who is also running for attorney general. “Democrats stated they had set aside money for priorities, yet I cannot think of a bigger priority than protecting Colorado families from habitual drunk drivers,” Waller said through a statement issued after the first night of House debate. Republicans also blasted Democrats for not support GOP measures to increase funding for road construction and backfilling K-12 education budget cuts that has created the so-called “negative factor.” The budget includes $100 million that will be used to buy down the negative factor, but Republicans wanted that buy-down to be increased by as much as $35 million more than what’s being proposed. House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso, R-Loveland, took issue with

Democrats’ rejections of GOP proposals. “It’s tough for me to stand here and say this was a broad, bipartisan budget,” DelGrosso said. “We could have done so much more with the resources we have and we could have done it in a fiscally responsible way.” DelGrosso joined 26 other Republicans to vote against the budget. The only Republican to vote yes was Rep. Cheri Gerou of Evergreen, who is a member of the Joint Budget Committee. But Ferrandino said key Republican efforts are not dead. Chances are that Waller’s felony DUI bill will end up passing the House Appropriations Committee — something that Ferrandino assured Waller would happen, Waller told Colorado Community Media. Ferrandino said that Democrats could also get behind another GOP proposal to fund a pilot project for advanced placement students in rural communities, so long as Republicans do something to reduce the price tag of the program. The House speaker said the economy is doing better and the sate can do more things than it has been able to do in recent years. But that doesn’t mean that everyone’s going to get their way. “We still have to live in the realities of the budgets we have,” Ferrandino said. “There’s a lot of things I’d love to do in the budget, but at the end of the day, that budget has to be balanced.” The budget bill now heads to the Senate.

Republican assembly paints primary picture Three GOP races to be contested this June in Douglas County By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@coloradocommunitymedia.com In addition to the sheriff’s race, there were three other contested races at this year’s Douglas County Republican General Assembly. In all three races — to replace state Rep. Carole Murray in House District 45, Jack Hilbert as District 1 commissioner, and Lora Thomas as coroner — all prospective candidates received the minimum 30 percent support at the March 22 assembly to make the June primary ballot. Running to replace Murray in the state House, political newcomer Patrick Neville, a retired Army captain who resides in Franktown, defeated Douglas County Clerk and Recorder Jack Arrowsmith by a margin of 64 percent to 36 percent at the assembly. Neville said his main takeaway from the experience was “that Douglas County is ready for bold, conservative leadership.” He said he’ll “bring a new energy and a passion for what (he) believes in,” putting an emphasis on fiscally conservative values. Arrowsmith, who has served the last seven years as clerk and recorder, touted his experience, a background that also includes four years as a legislative co-chair for the Colorado County Treasurers’ and Public Trustees Association, five years on the county’s planning commission working with land use and water rights, and three years on the Douglas County Open Space Advisory Committee. The Castle Rock resident said he “understands the value in protecting rural Douglas County.”

House District 45: Patrick Neville 64% Jack Arrowsmith 36% Douglas County Sheriff: Tony Spurlock 50.4% Lora Thomas 24.8% John Anderson 24.6% Douglas County Coroner: Tracey Montano 57.7% Jill Romann 42.2%

District 1 Douglas County Commissioner: Dave Weaver 61.3% Stevan Strain 38.6% Note: To make it on to the Republican primary ballot, candidates must earn 30 percent of the vote from delegates at the party’s general assembly. There were 473 delegates present at

While Arrowsmith said his level of experience is “something his opponent doesn’t have,” Neville called the clerk and recorder “a career politician” and said he believes “everyone has a unique set of experience they can bring to the table.” “I understand what it means to raise my hand right hand and defend the constitution. I have seen people sacrifice everything to fight for that,” he said. “Unfortunately, I think the war for our freedom and liberty and our constitution is no longer overseas, but here at home.”

Commissioner race

To replace Hilbert as county commissioner — which represents the northeastern portion of the county — Sheriff David Weaver defeated businessman Stevan Strain, 61.3 percent to 38.6 percent. Weaver is term-limited in his current elected office. Strain, pleased to be on the primary ballot, was far from discouraged by the assembly vote, which heard the voices of 473 delegates, a small portion of the county’s 100,905 registered Republican voters. “It is about the party right now, to see if I am a qualified candidate,” Strain said. “I worked for 30 years to get the experience for the platform I’m running on … doing what is great for the citizens of Douglas County, holding down taxes, providing

the general assembly, representing 100,905 registered Republicans in Douglas County. For those who earn more than 10 percent support at the assembly but less than 30 percent, they were given nine days to collect 5,040 signatures (20 percent of the total number of votes at the 2010 Republican primary) if they chose to attempt to petition on to the primary ballot.

goods and services.” Strain, who recently sold the Warhorse Inn after 30 years of running the popular Parker restaurant, currently serves on the county’s planning commission and open space advisory board. He has also served as president of the Parker Chamber of Commerce and Parker Economic Development Council, been involved with the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District and sat on the library board of directors. Weaver, on the other hand, pointed to being a longtime resident, who in his role as sheriff, has really gotten to “know the people and know the issues” as well as gain valuable experience in balancing a budget upward of $50 million. “At the end of the day, I care tremendously about this county and its future,” he said. “It all comes down to providing governance. “My concerns are plentiful with balanced growth, water solutions, and I bring experience in leadership and management, and have a lot of knowledge and experience in serving people as we continue to grow at a rapid speed with the goal of continuing to have a thriving economy. “I appreciate the time and effort the delegates put forth in understanding all of the candidates and the issues that face us here as a community. I appreciate the

general assembly results

24.6 percent. For candidates to make it on to the Republican primary ballot they must receive 30 percent of the vote at the general assembly. If they do not reach that amount, but finish with more than 10 percent, they had nine days to gather signatures equating to 20 percent of the total number of votes in the Republican primary during the last sheriff’s election — which in this case meant 5,040 valid signatures by registered Republican voters in Douglas County. Neither Thomas nor Anderson chose to go through with the petition process. “I think the message from the delegates is that the citizens of Douglas County are appreciative of the efforts of the sheriff’s office, they are happy with my vision and mission for the future, and they are happy with what I have been doing as the undersheriff,” Spurlock said. “I am very happy, humbled and proud to be representing the Republican Party. It is a daunting and humbling task to run for office. I really appreciate everything the delegates and alternates did and I’m very pleased for the way it turned out.” Thomas and Anderson both ex-

Also on the primary ballot

In the race to replace former sheriff’s candidate Lora Thomas as coroner, Tracey Montano defeated Jill Romann 57.7 percent to 42.2 percent at the assembly, and both candidates will appear on the primary ballot. The following candidates had no competition at the general assembly and will run unopposed in the party’s primary this June: At the state level, Chris Holbert, currently the representative in HD-44, is running to replace term-limited Ted Harvey in Senate District 30. Jack Hilbert, currently the District 1 county commissioner, is running to replace Holbert in HD-44. And Kevin Van Winkle is running to replace term-limited Frank McNulty in HD-43. At the county level, Merlin Klotz is running to replace Arrowsmith as clerk and recorder. Diane Holbert is running for re-election as treasurer. Lisa Frizell is running to replace term-limited Teri Cox as assessor. And Robert Snodgrass is running to replace retiring Dale Hamilton as the county surveyor. As of now Snodgrass is the only Douglas County Republican aside from sheriff’s candidate Tony Spurlock, who has competition waiting in the general election. In November, Snodgrass will face Democrat William Buntrock, who was defeated by Hamilton in 2010. Also of note, HD-39 incumbent Polly Lawrence, who lives in Roxborough, is the only Republican that has filed to run for that seat. As that district represents both Douglas and Teller County, the assembly to place her on the ballot will be held April 11 with delegates from both counties. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Lawrence stands to face Larkspur Democrat Carla Turner in the general election for a second consecutive time.

pressed disappointment with the caucus process, and the fact that Colorado is among the minority of states that still adheres to it. Both also agreed the process is not necessarily a representative one as intended. “The caucus system is designed to work for the political machines and I am not a political machine,” said Anderson, lamenting that there was neither time nor money to pull together enough signatures before the deadline. “Twenty votes kept me off the ballot. I’m just disappointed that 460 people can decide how hundreds of thousands of people would vote. I don’t think it’s right. “You go in believing in the system, and there are people that give you thousands of dollars to support you and knowing what I know now, I feel they were ripped off.” Thomas pointed to the fact that in 2010, she narrowly lost to Carter Lord in the race for coroner at the assembly, losing 50.8 percent to 49.2 percent with 417 delegates voting. She then went on to carry 94 percent of the precincts at the Republican primary, winning by a margin of 21.6 percent with more than 26,000 votes cast. She said those same delegates that gave “Tony Spurlock a free ride” are “out of step with most Republican voters” and what happened in 2010 demonstrates that. “Why did 50 percent of the Re-

publican party bosses at the assembly vote for someone other than Tony Spurlock? They recognized the need for new leadership and fresh ideas,” she said. “The calls that I’ve received this week indicate that Douglas County Republican voters aren’t pleased with this arrangement.” Anderson said he doesn’t know how to change it, but that he plans to educate more people about the process and that change needs to come at the state level, and he hopes it will. “There are a lot of people that are unhappy that they were denied the ability to vote,” he said. “Their voices don’t get to be heard.” Douglas County Republican chairman Craig Steiner said that he personally likes the process and that it is “open to any Republican who decides to show up and caucus,” and that they alone have the ability to “determine the outcome.” At the same time Steiner said, while candidates can choose to forego the caucus and assembly and begin petitioning Feb. 1 with the same March 31 deadline, he doesn’t feel like there is enough time after the assembly for candidates to petition on to the ballot if they don’t get the 30 percent, as all petitions must be filed 85 days in advance of the party’s primary election. “I hope that is something that is fixed in Colorado election law,” he said.

Board vote bonds traditional opponents Concerns about changes to public comment cross lines By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com The Douglas County School Board’s recent decision to restrict public comment has had an unexpected impact, at least momentarily uniting many who traditionally have stood on opposite sides of the board’s decisions. Many Douglas County residents who disagree on the board-initiated voucher program, teacher evaluations, budgetary and other issues have come together to agree that the March 25 policy change goes too far. A member of DCSD’s District Account-

ability Committee and a district captain with the Douglas County Republicans resigned his DAC post after the 6-1 vote to limit general public comment to five minutes per meeting. Former DAC member David DiCarlo did not return calls to Colorado Community Media requesting comment, but said during a March 18 discussion about the proposed policy, “I don’t always like what my neighbors have to say … but I would die for their right to say it.” Board member Meghann Silverthorn was the lone director to vote against the public comment policy change. Though the board-approved motion allows board president Kevin Larsen discretion to expand the time for public comment, another Douglas County Republicans’ district captain decried the change as “an unreasonable restriction on public participation.”

“That the board president has not been able to preside efficiently over public meetings is insufficient justification to establish arbitrary and oppressive restrictions,” reads a post from Dave Gill on both the Douglas County Republicans’ and Doug Co Champions for Kids Facebook pages. “As inconvenient as the more autocratic elected officials among us may find it, we still live in a Republic.” Promoted as a way to expedite the board’s business, the change focuses the bulk of public comment on items listed on the agenda. Instead of the 30-minute period now reserved for public comment, much of which has been sharply critical of the board — public comment now will be allowed only at the meeting’s end during a five-minute, one-minute-per-speaker period. The Douglas County Republicans ac-

tively campaigned for and supported the reform-minded board members in the last three elections, but Gill said he’s far from alone in his position. “I think you could safely say many of the Republicans who support and have supported the board are not at all pleased with this decision and certainly will be urging them to correct it,” Gill said. “I think the board has to learn to be more open and to appear more open.” Larsen did not return calls from Colorado Community Media requesting comment. Gill is among many who hope the discovery of common ground in the longdivided DCSD school board community could spark some unity. “Maybe that is something good that will come out of this,” he said.

Host families sought for Finnish exchange students By Hannah Garcia

community or even our staff in such a depressed state in terms of what’s happening. I really was yearning for a signal they wanted to move beyond that divisiveness and really add a different perspective. I felt like this was an opportunity they really missed.” Finalist Dilpreet Jammu, a member of DCSD’s Long Range Planning Committee, said the appointment process was not well-defined, and the end result unsurprising. “I wasn’t surprised, given how things have evolved in terms of politics and our board,” he said. “I believe they picked the candidate who’s best

The application process includes a background check and an interview at the applicant’s home, Gould said. “Applicants don’t have to have children, but it’s great if they do,” Gould said. Gould lives in Highlands Ranch, but is looking for families throughout the south metro region. This year’s program is centered on renewable energy and green initiatives, Gould said. Students will have two official programs weekly, including trips to explore the Environmental Protection

for what their needs are, whatever those are. I certainly hope the gentleman makes good, solid decisions.” Retired teacher Gary Colley, another finalist, said the quick action was “unfortunate.” “There was no explanation why he was the best candidate,” he said. “Unfortunately, it creates the wrong impression. It’s no big loss if I didn’t get selected, but surely you wouldn’t bring on a pro-board supporter when you’re trying to get the confidence of the community back.” Robbins said he had no say-so in the process. “Whether it’s the right process or the wrong process, or whether the process needs to be tweaked or not, that’ll be something we need to hear from the public, and probably sit down and look at as a board,” he said.

Agency offices in Denver and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Boulder. “The point is also to learn about the culture and make lifelong connections,” Gould said. “The students will basically live like family members in the household (of the host family).” The students will stay with the families for five and a half weeks this summer from June 6 to July 14. The program is sponsored by the State Department. “They are from all over Finland,” Gould said. “The goal was to get students that

Pair arrested in cell phone scam By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com A man and woman were arrested by Lone Tree police on March 21 for allegedly defrauding a dependent adult at the Park Meadows Apple Store. Casey Joseph Parker, 24, of Venice, Calif., and Erin Leigh Chamblee, 35, of Denver, both were cited for obtaining a signature by deception. Police were called to the Apple Store about 2 p.m. March 21 to talk with the caregiver of a dependent adult male. The caregiver said the man had been asked to purchase iPhones for Parker. The dependent man said he did not know why he was at the Apple Store, but that Chamblee had entered his personal information into a store computer. Lone Tree police believe the two have perpetrated the same scam on other homeless or mentally challenged people. “The suspects in this case targeted indi-

viduals who are homeless and/or mentally challenged and offer a way for them to make money,” according to a Lone Tree Police Department report. “The suspects then use the individuals to complete contracts at various retail phone stores where the contract includes a new iPhone. The suspects will ask the individual to purchase multiple phones under separate contracts. They then take the new phones, sell them for profit, and accrue charges against the victim’s credit.” In the Park Meadows instance, Parker allegedly gave money to Chamblee to purchase five iPhones in the dependent man’s name. Parker also was charged with criminal possession of an identification document, and Chamblee with possession of drug paraphernalia. Lone Tree police are talking with metroarea retailers and law officers to identify other victims. Anyone who has additional information is urged to call the police at 303-339-8150.

DISH promises changes for nursing moms Staff report In response to a letter from the ACLU of Colorado, DISH Network has agreed to make several improvements to their accommodations for nursing mothers. On March 12, the ACLU sent a letter of complaint to DISH Network documenting multiple failures to accommodate nursing mothers at two of its Colorado locations. At its corporate headquarters in Douglas County’s Meridian business center, employees had to pump breast milk in front of their coworkers and supervisors without privacy screens or curtains. At its call center in Littleton, the lactation room is inside a bathroom stall, which is in direct violation of federal and state law. On March 21, DISH sent the ACLU a response, promising new accommodations for nursing employees.

“DISH is to be commended for promptly committing to address the problems outlined in our letter and for taking significant strides to protect the rights of nursing mothers in the workplace,” said Rebecca Wallace, staff attorney for ACLU of Colorado, in a statement. The company promised to provide multiple private places to accommodate several nursing mothers in the Englewood office, and to move the lactation room in the Littleton office out of the bathroom. DISH representatives indicate they are “undertaking a company-wide assessment of the accommodations provided to nursing mothers,” and have identified a human-resources manager whose duty it is to ensure compliance with laws regarding nursing employees. The letter emphasizes the company’s commitment to providing a healthy, family-friendly workplace.

behind SB 14-164, a bipartisan effort that would give Colorado its own firefighting fleet. King and others hosted an open house on March 26 at Centennial Airport that featured a live water drop demonstration of the Martin Marietta C-130 Hercules Next Generation Airtanker, built by Coulson Aviation USA. Last year, SB 13-245 created the

Colorado Firefighting Air Corps, but the state currently has no such aircraft. Should the new bill pass, it would permit the state, for the 2014 fire season, to purchase, lease, or contract for the use of up to three firefighting helicopters. For the 2015 fire season and beyond, the state could use up to four large aircraft from the federal government or other sources.

Gone West

Wonderbound troupe offers new creation at PACE Center By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com Wonderbound is a dance company under the direction of Garrett Ammon and Dawn Fay — 11 dancers who are known for unusual movement and collaboration with other artists in the community, as new works are created. The most recent creation is “Gone West,” with 11 new poems by Michael J. Henry, director of the Lighthouse Writers Workshop, and 10 new songs written by Denver musician Ian Cooke, a cellist

IF YOU GO

“Gone West” will be performed April 4-6 at the Performing Arts Complex at Pinnacle Charter School, 1001 W. 84th Ave., Federal Heights. Performances: 7:30 p.m. April 4, 5; 2 p.m. April 6. Tickets: 303-292-4700. On April 12 at 7:30 p.m. and April 13 at 2 p.m., “Gone West” will be presented at the PACE Center, 20000 Pikes Peak Ave., Parker. Tickets: $22-$47, 303-8056800, wonderbound.com. with a popular band, which will accompany the dancers. Ammon writes of the “collection of beautifully flawed humans” brought to life in Henry’s poetry, while Cooke said, “My inspiration for `Gone West’ comes

from the relationships humans have with each other and the earth. I think periodic exposure to raw unfiltered nature gives us clarity and helps us sort out our issues … Nature can be harsh, but even when it causes traumatic events, it helps us evolve … telling this story together through dance, poetry and music is one of the best, most human ways to do so.” The performance is described as a Western journey that is a cross between Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” and a KOA Campground. Contemporary ballet draws on many sources, both new and traditional, to offer yet another way of telling stories to an audience. These are exceptional dancers.

It’s Christmas, 1968. As ACT I begins, an indignant Judy Garland is complaining loudly to her manager/fiance, Mickey Deans. The elegant suite at London’s fanciest hotel isn’t big enough — and she needs a drink! And she still fantasizes that her “people” will unpack for her. Lights are up on “End of the Rainbow” by Peter Quiller, a regional premiere at the Arvada Center. Judy Garland, who was performing in vaudeville with her actor/parents as a toddler, was remembered for “The Wizard of Oz,” of course, but also, the Andy Hardy films with Mickey Rooney, “Meet Me in St. Louis,” “Strike Up the Band,” “Babes of Broadway,” “For Me and My Gal” … She had five husbands and three children, and left a legacy of beloved songs. Garland (Tari Kelly), we soon learn, is short on money and Deans (Zachary Clark) is trying to keep her clear of the drink and drugs — part of her routine for years — so she can perform every night. She has a sixweek contract at London’s Talk of the Town, which could make a dent in a 10-year accumulation of debt, Deans tells her. Ideally, it could be a comeback after some difficult years. Kelly has the Garland voice and singing style nailed and is convincing in her intense portrayal of a legendary star in tatters

Kelly’s Judy is fragile, but can (usually) still belt out a song. Her pianist/accompanist, Anthony, is played by Jonas Cohen, who lends a sympathetic counterpoint to Deans’ controlling manner. Staging is especially effective as the back wall of the hotel suite fades and a bandstand comes into view. The stage becomes Talk of the Town, with a wide area for Garland’s performances, then fades back into a hotel suite almost magically. (Arvada’s scenic designer Brian Mallgrave is in top form.) Shannon McKinney’s lighting skills contribute strongly. Described as a bio-drama with music, “End of the Rainbow” offers a moving closure on a sad story — just don’t arrive expecting an upbeat musical production.

Sightseers get sights to see Denver visitors can peruse art at center By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia. com Denver’s iconic 40-foot-tall Blue Bear, titled “I See What You Mean,” now has more to look at as he peers into the Denver Convention Center. Eight new works of art were recently placed in the center to enhance the experience of the many visitors who trek through its exhibit spaces and halls. The artworks were paid for through a public-private partnership between the City and County of Denver and the convention center’s management company, SMG, which commissioned the project. Total cost was $235,000. The pieces mark the introduction of Denver’s newly announced cultural plan, “IMAGINE 2020,” and were selected through NINEdotARTS, a local cultural consultant, with representatives from Denver Arts and Venues, Visit Denver, SMG and members of the Denver arts community. The focus was on Denver artists and galleries. Half of the artists are younger than 35, although Denver veterans Roland Ber-

Yes, it’s ‘Moron’ Clever Robert Dubac’s “The Book of Moron” is extended for two weeks at Avenue Theater, 417 E. 17th Ave., Denver — through April 12. Dubac’s everyman talks about his Inner Voices. Performances: 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets: $26.50/$24.50, 303-3215925, avenuetheater.com.

Outsider artist “The Road to Mecca” by South

“The Heavy is the Root of the Light,” a 95-by-95-foot painting by Mindy Bray, is on the wall behind the escalator at the Denver Convention Center. Courtesy photo nier and Phil Bender are also included. For Bernier, it’s the largest installation in his 60-year career of creating art from words (“Wall of Words”). Choices range from traditional landscape through Bernier’s words and Bender’s license plates to Mindy Bray’s huge mural and Ian Fisher’s images of clouds and sky. (Museum of Outdoor Arts in Englewood recently exhibited his work.)

On the wall by the two-story escalator that carries one up to the exhibition halls is a 95-by-95-foot site-specific mural by Mindy Bray, titled “The Heavy is the Root of the Light.” It is based on photographs of the Platte River nearby at Confluence Park and speaks of the flow of pedestrians as well as that of the river. The title is a line from the Tao Te Ching.

curtain time

African playwright Athol Fugard plays through May 4 at Miners Alley Playhouse, 1224 Washington Ave., Golden. It’s based on the story of Helen Elizabeth Martins, who created a sculptural “Mecca” in her yard over many years. (It is now a museum.) Performances: 7:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays; 6 p.m. Sundays (2 p.m. only on May 4). Tickets: $23/$20/$12, 303-935-3044, minersalley.com.

Bray is a painter and installation artist based in Denver, who received her MFA from the University of Iowa in 2005. She has taught at the University of Denver and Metropolitan State University and exhibited nationally. Her artist statement reads: “All visual experience is filtered, as the brain categorizes and creates patterns in order to attempt an understanding of what is being experienced …. My works on paper and on the wall describe an intersection of the natural world and built environments ….” Other new public art at the convention center: • “I Know You Know That I Know” by Sandra Fettingis. • “Untitled (Ocular Series) by Mike McClung. • “Wall of Words” by Roland Bernier. • “Boulder Creek-Autumn 08 #1” by James Cook. • “Atmosphere No. 27, 37 and 44” by Ian Fisher. • “Untitled 88” by Derrick Velasquez. • “License Plates” by Phil Bender. These new works would meet the priority listed in “IMAGINE 2020” that states: “Increase visibility of local artistic and creative talent.” The document, as well as a summary of it, can be found online. We hope the metropolitan area arts community is aware of its aspirations.

sellingboe @coloradocommunitymedia.com In 10 years, Lisa Lillein, who started with sending a food-related email to 75 friends, has built a multimillion-dollar business. She sends daily emails to 1.2 million subscribers every weekday, appears on the Food Network and Cooking Channel, and is currently on a crosscountry tour introducing her latest (11th) book, “The Hungry Girl Diet Book.” She will appear at the Highlands Ranch Tattered Cover at 7:30 p.m. April 11 to talk about her recipes and share some lowcalorie snacks, as well as a gift bag of goodies from several food brand partners.

Girls team: League of their own Girls team features four seniors, a junior and a sophomore By Jim Benton

jbenton@ coloradocommunitymedia.com After learning about the six players selected to Colorado Community Media’s All South Metro Girls Basketball Team, one coach commented that she could win with this squad. The six-player team was chosen by the CCM sports staff from among players in the south metro Denver area, and the chosen players would give any coach a variety of winning options. There isn’t much height on the team of Natalie Baker of Chaparral, Cherry Creek’s Mikaela Eppard, Kendall Bradbury of Valor Christian, Ciera Morgan of Highlands R a n c h , Chelsea Pearson of Mountain

Boys all-area team features league player of the year, top scorer By Jim Benton

The six-player team was chosen by the CCM sports staff from among players in the south metro Denver area. Braxton, a 6-foot-9 senior who is bound for Weber State, was one of the

Vista and Rock Canyon’s Lexy Thorderson. But still, there is plenty of rebounding ability, and all six players are scoring threats. The 6-foot Thorderson, a senior who will play next season for San Diego State, was a problem for opposing defenses to contain this year because she could score from long range and also do damage in the paint. She led the Continental League with a 17.8 scoring average and made 73 3-point

most dominating players around the basket in the state. He was the Continental League’s Player of the Year after posting a double-double in every game this season despite being the main focus of every opposing team’s defense. Braxton averaged 17.9 points this season for the Falcons, a league-leading 13.8 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game. Pemberton led the Continental League in scoring at 19 points a game. He also averaged 6.4 rebounds and 3.8 steals for the Golden Eagles who advanced to the Final Four. The 6-3 senior who has signed to

She can score from outside and penetrate to create opportunities for both herself and teammates. She averaged 17.3 points to finish second behind Thorderson in the Continental scoring race.

play at the University of Denver is a smart player who makes big plays at big times. He is a great jump shooter from any range. Rounding out the team are Chase Foster of Valor Christian, Chaparral’s Jake Holtzmann, Ethan Brunhofer of Arapahoe and Rock Canyon’s Mitch Lombard. Foster, a 6-5 senior who will play at the University of San Francisco, is a very athletic player who can do it all. He averaged 20.3 points for the Eagles and pulled down 5.1 rebounds. Holtzmann, a 6-6 junior, took over for

Baker, at 5-10, was the Continental League’s leading rebounder, averaging 9.8 boards per game. The University of Wyoming-bound senior scored at a 14.9 clip. For the second straight season, Eppard averaged a double-double for Cherry Creek. She is very good around the basket, scoring 15.6 points while pulling down 10.9 rebounds and she managed 3.5 assists per game. The 5-11 senior will attend Elmhurst College next year and play basketball. Bradbury, a 5-10 junior, led Valor with a 17.1 scoring average and also pulled down 8.7 rebounds per game. Pearson, who stands 5-8, was part of a talented class of sophomore players in the area. She connected on 66 3-point baskets and averaged 13.3 points and 2.4 steals per game. Players eligible for the all-star team come from all schools in Douglas County, the Littleton Public Schools District and from Cherry Creek H i g h School.

injured Brandon Malone as the Grizzlies featured player. He is an all-around performer who handled the ball, made passes and found time to score. He averaged 16 points and 4.4 rebounds. Brunhofer, a 6-2 senior, will play football next season for Butler but was a standout on the basketball court for an undersized but scrappy Arapahoe squad. He did whatever was required for the Warriors. He can produce around the basket against bigger opponents and finished the season scoring 16.3 points and averaging 6.3 rebounds. Lombard, a smooth player, who drives to the basket to make plays, is a 6-1 junior averaging 13.5 points and 5.3 assists. Players eligible for the team come from all schools in Douglas County, the Littleton Public Schools District and from Cherry Creek High School.

Mountain Vista raised its record to 5-0 despite a late challenge from Arapahoe as the Golden Eagles posted a 5-4 victory March 29 at a non-league girls soccer game at Shea Stadium. “I didn’t worry we would lose the game when the score got close but I was disappointed that our team gave up four goals in the final 15 minutes,” Mountain Vista Coach Theresa Echtermeyer said after the game. “We were up 5-0 so maybe we got a little overconfident and I made a lot of substitutions. Arapahoe also more aggressively pushed the attack late in the second half and we got a little disorganized. But we will learn from this game as we move forward in the season.” The Golden Eagles stood at 5-0 overall and 2-0 in the 5A Continental League heading into their April 1 matchup with Ponderosa. Following an April 3 game at Chaparral, Mountain Vista will face Rock Canyon (4-0, 2-0) in a key league tilt at 7 p.m. April 8 at Shea Stadium. The Golden Eagles then travel to Regis on April 10 and play Littleton April 15 at Littleton Public School Stadium. On March 29, Mountain Vista appeared firmly in control for most of the game as Megan Massey and Katie Joella scored goals for the Golden Eagles to give their team a 2-0 lead at halftime. The team continued to use speed and pinpoint lead passes to press the attack in the second half and went up 5-0 on goals by Mallory Pugh, Joella and Mia Bonifazi with 14:30 left in the game. Peyton Joseph and Pugh each had an assist and teammate Morgan McDougal dished off two assists to help their team’s scoring efforts. Refusing to give in, the Arapahoe attack began clicking with just less than 10 minutes remaining on the clock. Maggie Sex-

ton drilled an on-target shot into the upper left corner of the goal to start the scoring and Lauren Conley, Kai-Bin Ooi and Amenda Cadorette all scored goals to make the score 5-4 with 2:11 left in the game. Although the Warriors continued to press the attack, the Mountain Vista defense stiffened and prevented the tying goal. The Mountain Vista coach said her team plays a ball control style which often means taking the ball deep in Golden Eagle territory to reset in order to again mount the pressing, fast-pace attack. She said the defending state champions are a young team that is made up primarily of year-round soccer players including Pugh, a sophomore, who is a member of the U.S. Women’s Under 19 Soccer team. Massey, a junior midfielder, is another year-round soccer player. “I love the sport,” she said. “I enjoy being with teammates and I enjoy the competition. I also like playing midfield where I can to help push the attack and shoot from the top of the goalie box. I like to shoot high because most goalies can’t get up to block it. She said a personal goal this season is to score more than the 17 goals she scored last year. She smiled as she said she hasn’t scored a lot of goals so far this season but she got one against Arapahoe so the scoring total is coming along. Junior midfielder Morgan McDougal splits her time between basketball and soccer. “I have been playing soccer since I was about 3 or so,” she said. “Soccer is my game but I also play basketball. I took a break this year but I expect to play basketball again next year.” She said her favorite position is center midfield where she can roam the field, helping the defense by winning balls out of the year but also helping with the attack by either passing to a teammate who has a shot at the goal or taking the shot herself. “I don’t have any personal goals this season,” she said. “I just want to help my team win games and get back to the state tournament.”

ThunderRidge beat Roberson (Asheville, N.C.) and Venice (Fla.) and lost to Aliso Niguel (Calif.) and Clovis (Calif.) in the tourney matching several of the top teams in the nation. Josh Brown had an impressive tournament collecting eight hits and five RBI in 15 plate appearances.

Alumni games

Gridiron Alumni plans to hold several full contact football games this spring and summer at sites to be announced in the south metro area for former high school

players. The organization is targeting pitting matchups between rival schools. The first 40 alumni from each school who register get to play for their former school. The team that gets 30 players registered first gets home field advantage. This is the fourth year that Gridiron Alumni has been arranging games that are used to raise money for schools or charity. More than $250,000 has been raised since 2010. Gridiron Alumni claims the average game brings in about $5,000 for schools or charity. Players interested can register at www.gridironalumni.com.

Metro standout

Senior Kevin Hand from ThunderRidge is 1-0 with two saves and has a 0.89 earned run average for Metro State this season. He has made eight appearances with one start but is the Roadrunners top reliever. He struck out two batters and earned a save in a one-inning relief appearance in Metro State’s 9-7 win over nationally ranked Colorado Mesa March 25.

Officially

Randy McCall, a Highlands Ranch resident and former Cherry Creek athletic director, has worked three March Madness games this year. McCall, who also reffed in last year’s Final Four, will make his fourth appearance on college basketball’s biggest stage this weekend, when he blows the whistle in one of the three final games of the 2013-14 season.

CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) Depending on a promise made becoming a promise kept could be more than a mite unwise at this time. It’s best to proceed on your own rather than wait for aid that might never arrive. LEO (Jul 23 to aug 22) a recently revitalized relationship might not be quite what the Big Cat expected. But give yourself more time to deal with the changes. a little flexibility can go a long way. Good luck. VIRGO (aug 23 to Sept 22) a major change could prompt more adjustments. Some of them might be difficult to deal with at first. But hang in there, and before you know it, you’ll be coasting to your next goal. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Your sense of justice prompts you to speak out against an unfair situation, even if you seem to be the only one who feels that way. But you soon learn that many others agree with you. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) Creating a fuss is not usually your style. But that doesn’t mean you should tolerate an ill-mannered attitude. Speak up for yourself, and you’ll earn the respect of others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) You might have a few loose ends to tie up before you can stamp your project as complete. But once that’s done, you might want to celebrate with someone special in your life. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Disappointment darkens the Goat’s mood. But close friends rally to pull you through with words of encouragement. Use their confidence in you to rebuild your own self-esteem. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) an upcoming decision might be more difficult with inaccurate information. Best to recheck the data you have at hand right now to be sure it won’t mislead you later. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) an offer you previously turned down might no longer be available. But if you do some checking around, you could find something else that would suit you just fine. BORN THIS WEEK: You believe in helping those who cannot help themselves. although it embarrasses you, the fact is, people like you and tell you so. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.
