The 15th annual Highlands Ranch/Lone Tree Relay for Life event brought nearly 400 people together July 27-28 at Cresthill Middle School in Highlands Ranch, where 34 teams raised $58,889 for the American Cancer Society and participants walked the track all night, symbolizing that cancer never sleeps. There were numerous activities throughout the event, from Zumba to a Misster Relay Contest, movies, a karate demonstration and more, keeping spirits up while emotional moments such as the Luminaria Ceremony and Survivors Lap reminded people why they were there.

Street construction season underway One Lone Tree project done; another will continue into fall

As Douglas County prepares for a quarter of its population to be over the age of 60 by 2030, county officials are beginning to discuss the needs of today’s senior population from Deckers to Parker and everywhere in between. The Partnership of Douglas County Governments is putting forth a collaborative effort between all the towns, cities and special districts within the county, along with the school and library districts, to learn exactly what needs are out there and to what extent individuals and families in the county are aware of current available resources. As part of that process, community leaders and elected officials will have a listening tour lasting a month and a half, starting Aug. 2 in Deckers. The tour will make two stops each in Castle Rock and Parker and will also pass through Roxborough, Larkspur, Castle Pines, Highlands Ranch, Louviers and Lone Tree. The listening tour is being organized to give residents the opportunity to share their own visions for the community and address with county officials where there are gaps in current services. According to county spokeswoman Wendy Holmes, Douglas County is the only member of the Denver Regional Council of Governments that is addressSenior continues on Page 9

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com A stretch of Parkway Drive north of C-470, closed since mid-May, has reopened, but construction on nearby Park Meadows Drive will continue into the fall. The work on Park Meadows Drive between Quebec Street and Acres Green Drive includes replacing concrete and installing a landscaped median. “In order to keep all the businesses open, we have to do it a little bit at a time,” said Lone Tree Public Works Director John Cotten. “As a result, it’s probably going to be the end of September or into October before it completes.” Concrete on that section of Park Meadows Drive was failing, Cotten said. “We have been patching it and replacing panels for several years, and finally decided this year we would tear out the whole road and rebuild it,” he said. Construction crews wrapped up a redesign of Parkway Drive from County Line Road to Acres Green Drive. A water line break pushed that project ahead of schedule. The May 19 rupture of a 12-inch water line behind the Sports Authority building flooded Parkway Drive and its intersection with Acres Green Drive. By the time crews stemmed the flow, the road was badly damaged. The City of Lone Tree and Southgate Water District reached an agreement to go ahead with a redesign that included narrowing the street and in-

Construction on Lone Tree’s Park Meadows Drive between Acres Green Drive and Quebec Street will wrap up in late September or October. Photo by Jane Reuter stalling a median instead of merely repairing the damage. “By narrowing it, we actually saved Southgate about $100,000 in repair costs,” Cotten said. The city also hopes the redesign drops the number of accidents at the Parkway and Acres Green drives intersection. “Parkway and Acres Green has been one of our highest-accident intersections in the entire city,” Cotten said. “As we looked at the intersection more and more, we came to realize there’s just a lot going on there because it was four lanes intersecting with four lanes.” Because the projects are ending in late summer, landscaping in both the Parkway

and Park Meadows drives medians won’t be planted until spring. The new medians will not only beautify the streets, Cotten said, but continue a pattern already established elsewhere in the city. “It’s sort of a signature element for the city,” he said. “There are lot of people who don’t even know (the Parkway and Park Meadows drives area) is part of the city. We felt it would make it more feel like a part of Lone Tree.” The Park Meadows Metro District is partnering with the city on the Park Meadows Drive reconstruction and will complete the median landscaping on both streets in 2014.

The Partnership of Douglas County Governments is embarking on a collaborative effort with all of the county’s municipalities, the school district and the library district to gather information on the current and future quality of life needs of those 60 and older living in the county. File photo

Republicans interview school candidates Local party continues with strategy used in 2009, 2011 elections

‘We could have 10 Republicans and 10 Democrats and there’s no indication of their party affiliation. That makes it very hard for voters to know who to vote for.’

By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The leader of the Douglas County Republicans said the party’s involvement in school board elections helps ensure Republican principles are upheld locally. Colorado state statutes prohibit a school board candidate from running “as a candidate of any political party,” but that doesn’t prevent the local Republicans from endorsing board candidates — a practice they began in 2009 and are continuing with the November 2013 election. Through early August, members of a Douglas County Republicans’ interview committee will meet with board candidates who want the party’s endorsement — regardless of the candidate’s political affiliation. The executive committee will vote on endorsements for the four open seats in mid-August. Their choices will be based on those candidates “most likely to support the principles of the Republican Party,” local party chairman Craig Steiner said. The Douglas County Republicans en-

Douglas County GOP chairman Craig Steiner dorsed the seven current board members in the 2009 and 2011 elections. Steiner said the endorsements are critical because a school board candidate’s party affiliation is not indicated on a ballot. That was problematic in traditionally conservative Douglas County. “We could have 10 Republicans and 10 Democrats and there’s no indication of their party affiliation,” Steiner said during a July 26 breakfast in Castle Rock. “That makes it very hard for voters to know who to vote for. In Douglas County, when the voters know, Republicans pull anywhere from 60 to 75 percent of the vote. It’s clear that being a Republican and being supported by the Republican Party is something voters value.” Involvement in school board elections also is part of a broader Republican strategy. “This is where it starts — at the lo-

cal level,” Steiner said. “We can complain about what’s going on in Washington, but our sphere of influence is Douglas County. As long as all of our county parties are doing these things, we’re going to start seeing good results at the grassroots county level and going up from there.” Conversely, the Douglas County Democrats have no strategy for the school board election. “We don’t take the same approach because it’s nonpartisan,” chairman Mike Jones said. “We believe in public education. If people ask us, we tell them to vote for those who support public education. But there’s no big strategy.” Colorado Association of School Boards deputy executive director Jane Urschel said in an August 2012 interview that the association views service on a school board as “the highest level of service,” one that historically rose above party politics.

“Those who were elected would focus on what constitutes the best education of the children of those communities, and they would not be torn by politics or having to vote the way a party wants them to,” she said. Steiner sees no conflict between political party affiliation and the ability to objectively serve the needs of DCSD’s students. “The position of the Republican Party is that we have principles that apply equally to education, and we believe our principles are in the best interest of the child. “Whether it’s a group of people that call themselves Republican, Democrats or teachers unions, we’re all just members of the community with different views of the best ways to help the students. We all hope we’re doing this for the right reasons.” At least one candidate, Republican Kevin Leung, rejected the opportunity for an interview with the Douglas County Republicans. “I will not solicit or accept any endorsement from a political party or organized labor because I believe it is unethical to do so,” Leung said. “I am running to represent the people of Douglas County, not special interest groups in this nonpartisan election.” Leung ran unsuccessfully for a seat in 2009 and is among several plaintiffs in a lawsuit aimed at stopping the Douglas County School District’s voucher program.

Taste of Lone Tree bigger and better Sixth annual event includes live music, activities for kids By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The Taste of Lone Tree returns for its sixth year Aug. 10 and 11, bigger, better and more diverse than ever. This year’s additions include live music and a VIP ticket that offers an upgraded, more unique experience to match its higher cost. All events are at Lincoln Commons, off Lincoln Avenue and Commons Street east of the Super Target. The $45 VIP Experience includes access to a tent that will offer fine restaurant variety food, along with designated parking and a few other perks. “The tent will be positioned in a place so you can sit and watch the bands,” said Linda Harmon, director of the Lone Tree Chamber of Commerce. “The VIP Experience people will be able to go throughout

the festival and get unlimited tastings, but they will be the only ones allowed in the VIP tent.” In an effort to avoid the unanticipated high demand that left some vendors without enough food and drink in 2012, the $15 general admission ticket includes five food tastings and three drink samples. Another tent will offer some shade and seats for children and adults, and kids’ activities sponsored by local businesses. “You’ll be able to get your kids out of the sun and they’ll be able to chill and have some fun,” Harmon said. The 2013 event builds on the success of 2012, which drew nearly double the number of people organizers had anticipated. “We’ll have all the different wines, beer and food (of 2012), and it’s still going to be family fun,” Harmon said. “The big change probably is the live music.” A small arts festival featuring local jewelers and artists also will be part of this year’s Taste. The event is from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 10 and noon to 5 p.m. Aug. 11. For tickets and more information, visit www.lonetreechamber.com/a-taste-oflone-tree.

Technology teacher brings life to learning Prairie Crossing educator says engagement is key to pupils’ retention By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Kelly Cargo displays a wide, gap-toothed smile when she talks about her favorite technology project. “The Best Part About Me,” the Prairie Crossing Elementary fourth-grader said. “You’ve got to choose three things you like about yourself.” With help from technology teacher Debbie Blair, Cargo learned a computer program that allowed her to create a video and zoom in on Cargo’s favorite physical feature — her big, blue eyes. Like Cargo, sixth-grader Jordan McDonald doesn’t need time to recall her favorite. Though it was nearly three years ago, the memory is fresh. “It was what our passion is,” she said. “We did a video of what we really like to do.” For McDonald, that was karate. That near-instant recall is among the ways Blair sees technology changing education, and why she believes so fiercely in what she does. Her son, a Prairie Crossing student, created a virtual scrapbook on astronaut Neil Armstrong. “This was done in March or April and I know my son could still tell me about Neil Armstrong,” she said. “That’s because of the level of engagement.”

Prairie Crossing Elementary School technology teacher Debbie Blair shows a video that fifth-graders at the Parker school created about the branches of the U.S. government. Photo by Jane Reuter Initially a third-grade teacher at Prairie Crossing, Blair was named the school’s technology teacher seven years ago. The floating position takes her into every classroom, working with kindergartners, sixth-graders and all levels in between, on projects related to their studies. Classroom teachers work alongside Blair in a unique, shared teaching style. “We were the first school in the district to adopt the co-teaching model for technology,” said Blair. “It’s essentially embedded staff development. Teachers are learning to use the tools, too.” Second-grade teacher Brigitte Cranmer said some teachers initially were hesitant. “Debbie has pushed, prepared and given

Larkspur man seeks school board post Boyd says he sees both sides of education issues By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com When Stephen Boyd and his family left California in search of a new home more than two decades ago, he had no idea where they’d land. Larkspur caught his eye from the driver’s seat of his car, and 22 years later, he and his wife still live in the country outside Larkspur. Boyd believes he’ll bring that same openminded approach to the Douglas County School Board. The District D candidate seeks the seat now held by Carrie Mendoza. Mendoza has not yet said whether she will run for the post. “I see the two sides of the story and I understand what’s going on,” said the 65-yearold Republican, who taught in El Paso County’s Lewis-Palmer School District 38. “It would be foolish to take sides. My feeling is that maybe a school board could use somebody who is just steeped in education as a teacher, as an administrator.” His wife, Kristin, also is a District 38 teacher. “We’re just concerned about education in general in the U.S.,” Boyd said. Boyd was a businessman for 33 years who retired and then earned his master’s degree in education. He worked as a District 38 high school teacher in Monument for seven years before retiring a second time. He now is pursuing a doctoral degree in education. “I’m not sure what I’ll end up doing with it, but something political,” he said. “I’ve been a very political person my whole life.” Boyd spent most of his life in the San Francisco Bay area. Growth and an earth-

quake prompted the family to seek a new home. “To tell you the truth, we just packed up all the kids, put everything in the biggest van I could rent and started heading east,” Boyd said. “Neither of us had jobs. We were just headed down south (of Denver) looking around. I pulled over on the side of the road and said, `This looks nice. This is where we’ll live.’” “This” was Larkspur. The couple’s four sons, who attended District 38 schools because they were closer to their home than any Boyd Douglas County schools, are grown and gone from the family home. Boyd now is hoping to tie his interests in politics and education together. Boyd said he has no connection to the Douglas County Republicans, who will in August endorse a slate of candidates. Nevertheless, Boyd thinks he has a handle on the issues facing the DCSD board, including controversy surrounding the voucher program and changes to teachers’ pay and evaluations. “You’ve got one side that I think the Republican Party helped get in,” he said, “and there’s another outside group of parents and political folks who don’t like the changes that they’ve made. I understand the fight back and forth because it’s supposedly a nonpartisan position.” Though Boyd said he doesn’t know the process that led the board to make some of its controversial changes, “I think I have enough knowledge base that I could help with how these decisions are made.” Kevin Leung, who ran unsuccessfully for the school board in 2009, also is running for the District D board spot.

a lot of support to the teachers,” she said. “It took years to accomplish, but I really think Prairie Crossing leads in technology.” Blair’s position melds perfectly with the concept of 21st-century education, and her projects typically include the four C’s emphasized as part of the Douglas County

School District’s curriculum: Critical thinking, Creativity, Collaboration and Communication. “I think we do a lot of things at Prairie Crossing technologically that other schools may do, but maybe not to the same extent,” Blair said. “The different ways to use technology are built into the kids here.” Students typically work in small groups, creating multi-layered presentations. Fifth-graders last year wrote songs about the U.S. government’s branches, recorded those songs with an audio program and uploaded them to a video program. Such projects create memories students retain. “We don’t just want them to regurgitate information,” Blair said. Each student also has an e-portfolio of projects they’ve done throughout their years at Prairie Crossing — “a living history,” Blair said, of all they’ve accomplished. Blair’s job, like the e-portfolios, is everchanging. “I love how technology evolves,” she said. “What I did even five years ago, I would never think of doing with students now. The expectations I have for them change, too.” What remains constant is Blair’s goal to blend information students need to know with methods they’ve known their entire lives. “These kids are truly digital natives,” Blair said. “We need to capitalize on that.”

opinions / yours and ours

Preconceptions don’t stand up to reality I always keep a few apologies handy. Learning how and when to apologize is very important. I’ve said something or I’ve done something I’ve regretted more times than I want to count. But I did just that one night. I made a list of my major lapses, and there have been some humdingers. Usually I had a partner, an accomplice, but I never blamed him. He has a Russian name, Smirnoff. I was told never to ruin a good apology with a bad excuse. I try to follow that advice, but sometimes I have to apologize for my apology. Emails are not always the best way to say you’re sorry. Sometimes it’s an email that gets me in trouble in the first place. I can be too abrupt, too facetious, too unkind. And the instant that I click “send” I want a redaction that I can’t have. Some of us don’t apologize. Tough guys don’t apologize because it’s a sign of weakness. Did you hear the words “I’m sorry” or “I regret” during the James “Whitey” Bulger trial? I have apologized over and over, made amends or attempted to, and it makes me

feel a little better. But I hate the fact that I can be a jerk. I don’t need to express my opinion whenever I have one. But I do. Having an opinion column puts me on guard about perceived offenses. There might be something to write about. I am sandwiched by renters, and the houses have been rented countless times since I’ve lived in mine. My property is groomed. The yards next door haven’t been groomed since Missy Franklin was born, and the homeowners association knows my voice. (Note: The current renters are exceptions.) Everyone doesn’t have the time or

money to groom a yard, or the health or the energy. I just started driving with Meals For Wheels. I’m doing it for a number of reasons. I need to get out of the house, because isolating is not healthy for someone like me. And I need to be reminded about what’s important. I was offered Route 7, which takes me around parts of Englewood I have never seen before. Many of the homes look tired, and the homeowners look tired too — but they are doing the best they can. Yards and porches are littered. Things are left where they were last used, and that may have been weeks, months, or years. Doors open when I knock with a meal, and a smiling face looks at me. There is always a smiling face, and the old grouch smiles right back. I know I might be the only human being they talk with on Fridays. Many of them have devoted dogs. Bless our dogs, right? I don’t know any of them, but I can see biographical details everywhere, like military decals and affectionately arranged

flower beds. Most of their yards need makeovers. I would have been on the phone if I lived next to them. But not now. When I hand them a meal I see a graying life at the train station, with a ticket for the next destination. I might be looking at a World War II veteran or a greatgrandmother no one cares about anymore except relatives, maybe. All but a few live alone. I live alone. It’s easy for me to see myself in them, someday. One woman has animal shelter eyes. I can’t get them out of my mind. I told her to “Behave this weekend, and I will see you next Friday.” She broke into a smile, and so did I. The yards next door to me look fine. I’m sorry I felt otherwise. I plan to write about Route 7 again. I’ve said this before: I’m still learning. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

Teachers, schools fuel home sales

Figure out what it is you want Do you remember the pop song by the Spice Girls, “Tell me what you want, what you really really want, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want”? And then the lyrics are repeated several times. Have you ever been asked, “What is it that you really want?” Or maybe you have even asked yourself, “What is it that I want the most in life?” Does your answer change based on either situation? I often find that we tend to be more guarded when answering the question about what we want when asked by another person, and much more honest and deep when we look ourselves in the mirror and answer ourselves when no one else is around. Do we want material things? Do we want money? Do we want love? What is the thing we want most in this life? After 40 years of research, The Zig Ziglar Organization netted the list down to eight things that people really really want: To be happy, to be healthy, to be reasonably prosperous (and some people would like to be unreasonably prosperous), to have security, true friends, peace, solid family relationships and hope. Think about it, would you trade your happiness, health, prosperity, security, friendship, peace, family relationships and hope for a second or third home, a new car, jewelry, a good time, or even a great time? And does there absolutely have to be one or the other? I am a big proponent of “and” not “or,” and believe if we strive for the things we want without compromising our character or integrity we can have all of the material things we desire as well as all of the more important things that money will not buy. One of the things that I really really want in life is peace. And this is one of the reasons I really love living here in Colorado. There is such a fantastic sense of peace when hiking in the mountains, walking in our open spaces, skiing on through the trees or in a secluded or quiet area on the

hill. Sure, skiing requires equipment, proper clothing and a ski pass, but hiking and walking bring me peace with absolutely no investment from me other than my time. Our sunrises and sunsets observed each morning and evening bring me peace and hope, and once again without any cost. I set goals and pursue dreams. And when I look at the list of eight things that we all want, at some level I recognize that I am doing OK in several areas but still need to develop and grow in others. I would encourage you to write the list of these eight topic, Happy, Healthy, Reasonably Prosperous, Secure, Friendship, Peace, Family Relationships and Hope. Next to each one just simply put a check mark next to the ones you feel you are doing well in and an asterisk next to the ones you want to see yourself develop. Once we have reached an acceptable level in all eight areas, we can enjoy all of the things this life offers in every aspect of our lives. And it always amazes me that when someone shares with me that they have strengthened each of these areas, that some of their material desires and other things simply fall into place too. How are you doing in these eight categories? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com and together let’s make this a better than good week.

Douglas County is considered one of the top school districts in the country; my customers come to me saying “Louie, I want to live here. I want my kids to learn and grow up here.” Statements like these are often expressed by parents accustomed to East or West Coast private schools, where they would pay upwards of $20,000 a year in primary education costs. They literally could not be happier with the quality of education being provided by our fantastic teachers and administrators. Our underlying nature, as parents, is to want the very best for our kids, especially in their educational opportunities. DCSD provides choices and numerous school options for parents to place their children in the learning environment that is most beneficial to their specific needs and desires. The success of this approach has echoed across the country as the reputation of always-successful Douglas County schools continues to spread farther and farther. As a proud father of two children in DCSD, I feel it’s imperative to listen to the parents rather than surrounding noise when judging the success of schools in our county. We love sending our kids to school every day, and the proof of their growth is visible in the pudding of their triumphs year after year. Louie Lee Castle Pines Village

Lone Tree’s newest housing option, the Vue at RidgeGate apartment complex, shatters the stereotypical image of apartment living, said Mayor Jim Gunning. “They call it an apartment complex, but I really don’t think of it that way at all,” said the mayor, who cut the ribbon for the building’s grand opening July 25. “This is an extremely upscale apartment complex and an upscale demographic. It’s more like a resort.” “An upscale hotel is how it struck me,” said Elton Winters, who attended the grand opening. “This place is really befitting of Lone Tree.” Vue tenants likely will have enough disposable income to frequent the Lone Tree Arts Center, Park Meadows mall and other Lone Tree businesses, Gunning believes. “Those are really solid economic housing units for Lone Tree,” he said. They’re also popular, with 45 percent of the nearly 300 units already occupied or rehe served. The complex welcomed its first resicusnt dents in June. “We are leasing faster than company exd pectations,” manager David Walton said. e d to “We should be full in under a year. We budere geted for July to be 17 percent occupied and ear we’re already at 26 percent.” The demographic to date is wide-ranglly ing. of “You name it, we got it,” Walton said. “I stic think that’s partly due to our variety of floor s to plans. This is the first time as a company lly we’ve put in a studio. And that will attract a different demographic we haven’t been ous able to attract before — people that want to live in a nice place but maybe can’t afford ir hat $1,200 or $1,300 a month.” They’re also pulling in corporate-level ds executives who work in Denver but live ch elsewhere and need a Monday through Frias day residence. rther “Today’s renter is so much different than it was 20 years ago,” Walton said. “You have people that want to live in an apartment the that’s just as nice as a house, but to be carefree, to have everything you need right at

The pool at the Vue apartment complex, open year-round, features a heated deck as well as heated water. Photos by Jane Reuter your fingertips.” The Vue, at the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Park Meadows Drive, is the second upscale Lone Tree apartment complex developed by Martin Fein Interests. Its sister complex Miramont, located just around the corner from the Vue, opened in 2010. Construction at the Vue isn’t yet complete, but company representatives already say Lone Tree’s a likely candidate for another such complex. “We would definitely love to expand in the Lone Tree market,” Walton said. The company “loves this RidgeGate neighborhood. Our product is perfect for it.” Highlights include a demonstration

kitchen in which professional chefs will host classes for residents a few times each month, a personal trainer in the fitness room, a heated pool with a heated pool deck, eight heated poolside cabanas, a theater, a library with meeting rooms and outdoor terrace, bike rentals and a private parking garage. The units have 10-foot-high ceilings,

8-foot doors throughout, wood floors, travertine countertops, walk-in closets and fullsized washers and dryers, stainless steel appliances, mosaic-style kitchen backsplash and USB ports. Ranging in size from 517-square-foot studios to 1,396-square-foot three-bedrooms, monthly rents at the apartments start at $975 and top out at $2,300.

Fire agencies getting in sync Departments work on using same language By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@ourcoloradonews.com Supervisors with Littleton Fire Rescue, West Metro Fire Rescue and South Metro Fire Rescue are being trained to talk the same talk. “We run with each other a lot, so we want to communicate identically,” SMFR Capt. Ken Walker explained during a training session July 25. They’re using the Blue Card Command Certification Program, designed to bring departments into compliance with national standards required to be eligible for Homeland Security funds. “Each department wants to get better at running a call themselves and, in turn, as a group,” said Walker. “This way, we can kill two birds with

one stone.” A major focus of Blue Card is the actual words the firefighters are using on scene, so everyone understands each other and radio chatter is minimized. Walker said the goal is to be clear, concise and brisk with their orders. “Radio time is very precious, and people can get killed in the first five minutes,” he said. The supervisors sit in classes, then practice what they learned by running virtual drills on computers, communicating via real radios. On July 25, the scene was a burning strip mall. They worked on eliminating extraneous words like “at this time” or “please,” and whether to call a particular truck a “ladder” or a “tower.” “This training and certification program produces incident commanders that make better decisions that will potentially eliminate the

lethal and/or costly mistakes that cause injury, death and unnecessary fire losses in the local response area,” according to the program’s website. There’s been some concern about how long the training takes firefighters out of service. Chief John Mullin said the 50 hours of training for all 39 supervisors will require taking one engine out of service for the duration. Past training meant down time for two engines and one ambulance, he said, calling this an improvement. Joel Heinemann, president of the Littleton Firefighters Association, thinks Blue Card will generally be a good thing. But he is concerned that until the whole department is trained, not just the supervisors, it could create confusion. “In general concept, it’s the right thing to do,” he said. “Anything to improve communication is a step in the right direction.”

Lone Tree man charged in vandalism Former girlfriend’s car was among 18 damaged Staff report A Lone Tree man was arrested July 26 for allegedly vandalizing 18 cars in January while the victims participated in a prayer meeting in Evergreen.

Wilbur Leonard Pugh, 50, is charged with felony criminal mischief and domestic violence harassment-stalking. Pugh’s former girlfriend’s car was among those damaged when a gelbased paint thinner was poured on them. The paint thinner eroded the vehicles’ paint down to bare metal,

causing more than $65,000 in damages. The cars were parked at The Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park, a facility that hosts weddings and other group events. Investigators have pursued leads since the incident occurred, finally arresting Pugh at his Lone Tree home in late July.

‘Stranger’ reports bogus, police say Sheriff ’s office likely to seek criminal charges By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Authorities with different police agencies say three recent reports of strangers approaching women and children are all false. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Parker Police Department said their investigators have determined that the reports made between July 16 and July 23 are not credible. Now two of those who made the claims face criminal charges, including false reporting to authorities. The sheriff’s office issued an alert July 19 out of “concern for public safety” after two women reported incidents. One woman said a Hispanic male approached her July 16 near her home in the Northridge Park area of Highlands Ranch and asked her to go with him. When she refused, she said, he got in a white van and quickly drove away. Three days later, another woman said a “darkskinned man” put his arm around her waist in a Taco Bell parking lot at Blakeland Drive at Highway 85, just outside Highlands Ranch. She said she pushed him away and he left in a white van. Parker police responded July 23 to a call of a man in a white van approaching two young children in Jola Park in Clarke Farms and offering them candy. That report was also found to be untrue, with officials saying two hours after an alert was issued that the “information may not be as credible

as initially presumed.” Sgt. Andy Coleman, public information officer for the Parker police, said the department is not considering criminal charges because the false report came from an 8-year-old girl. He defended against criticism the department received on Facebook for disseminating what turned out to be false information, calling the situation a “Catch-22.” “We want to get it out to everybody as soon as possible when we get a report like that,” Coleman said. “The downside is when someone is lying and providing a false report. But if we ever waited, I think people would be upset if we didn’t provide that information.” The sheriff’s office had urged residents to report suspicious activity involving a Hispanic male in a white van to its Major Case Tip Line. The DCSO says “it is likely charges will be recommended” to the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office for the calls. False reporting, a Class 3 misdemeanor, is punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a $750 fine. Ron Hanavan, spokesman for the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, said the erroneous reports are “resource-taxing” and cause a “breach of the peace of the community.” He noted that the two Highlands Ranch reports were “distinctly different” and the women did not know each other, nor were they aware of one another’s reports. It was when the second report involving similar circumstances came in that the sheriff’s office informed the public of a possible threat. Hanavan declined to comment on how investigators determined the stories were untrue.

ing such a situation in this manner. Part of the reason behind the county’s actions, said Commissioner Jack Hilbert, is that Douglas County has the fastest growing senior population per capita in the state and is among the top 10 nationally when it comes to an increase in elders. “Because of that we have to start addressing this now,” he said. “We don’t have, in my opinion, 10 years to get these answers. We need to start getting these answers in the next three to five years to address our current population.” Part of the reason to address this in a collaborative fashion, he said, is so that services aren’t being duplicated. With multiple municipalities working together to solve existing issues among the senior population, it will limit the use of taxpayer dollars. Hilbert anticipates some of the hottest topics being discussed will be transportation, affordable housing and health care. “We don’t know the level which each will rise to, but we want to make sure citizens are being served and work with the private sector to make that happen,” he said. In addition to the listening tour, the county also has a survey avail-

‘Nightmares’ for eateries

The Douglas County Fairgrounds has been busy recently in the leadup to the county fair. It was the site of this major quarter horse show, which attracted competitors from Nevada, Texas and elsewhere. Photo by Virginia Grantier

County fair

bigger and better Plenty to do, plenty to see at annual event in Castle Rock By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews. com It’s not just a spectator sport, this year’s annual Douglas County Fair and Rodeo: In addition to watching livestock competitions and rodeos, there are free pancakes, pie-eating contests, dances, carnival rides, hands-on ag-education opportunities — and, of course, the cricket races. The fair is Aug. 8-11, but many of the preliminary events are already underway. The fourth annual cricket races for a couple hundred kids and crickets will take place at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 9, and racers are reminded not to bring their own crickets. It’s not because race organizers are worried about seeing super crickets with suspiciously large muscle-bound insect bodies. They want to spare young cricket-handlers from perhaps losing their cricket pet, says Maryjo Woodrick, an event coordinator for the Douglas County Extension Office. Apparently, there have been times when the cricket handlers get so excited during the race that instead of encouraging the cricket to move faster by patting the ground behind the cricket, they pat the cricket, Woodrick said. And there have been times when the winning cricket handler, so excited about the win, has jumped up and down where they wished they hadn’t. So, the extension office provides the crickets, about 300 of them bought from a local pet store. Most crickets make it through OK, and kids can take them home as pets, with special instructions from Joe Julian, Douglas County’s extension director, on how to care for them.

The Douglas County Fair and Rodeo features rodeo events each night from Aug. 8-11, including professional bull riding on opening night. Courtesy photo by Brian Q Gauck The fair, located at Douglas County Fairgrounds, 500 Fairgrounds Drive in Castle Rock, actually started July 27 with a junior division dog show and continues through Aug. 11 with 4-H and open competitions — everything from floriculture to goats to quilts. The biggest days, with major events, will be the two weekends in the stretch from Aug. 3-11, but especially the last weekend — which starts early. The final weekend starts revving up at 7 p.m. Aug. 8 with championship bull riding. On Aug. 9, among other things, will the cricket races, a P.R.C.A. rodeo and headline entertainment, country singer Walker Williams, who has been the warmup act for Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and others. Aug. 10 kicks offs with the 9 a.m. fair parade on Wilcox Street, Castle Rock’s main street,

and then later on is the tractor pull, the pie-eating contest, another rodeo and a barn dance featuring Honky Tonk Voodoo, a Colorado band described as “country music with an edge.” On Aug. 11, the fair winds down with an 8 a.m. free pancake breakfast, a draft horse pull and another rodeo at 1 p.m. In this county where bedroom suburbia is replacing ranchland, some members of the county’s leadership still have agricultural roots and interests. Todd Spencer, chairman of the Douglas County Fair Board, is the go-to person for 4-Hers to ask sheep questions. His family has been raising and showing sheep since the 1940s, and he started the DC Lamb Masters 4-H Club. Spencer can take the flat of his hand, run it along a sheep’s body, and tell to a fraction of an inch that ratio of fat to muscle, he said. Douglas

County Commissioner Roger Partridge is the beef expert — he’s been a longtime 4-H leader and superintendent of the beef program. “The fair offers all the ability to see our past, present and future Western and agricultural heritage all together in one week even though this lifestyle is experienced and enjoyed all year long by many right here in Douglas County,” Partridge said. “It is true Americana.” Partridge says they’re noticing a strong and rising interest in gardening, and in raising chickens — and he’s guessing it’s because some urban communities now allow chickens. “We have over 400 chicken entries this year,” he said, about a 22 percent increase. “We’ve had to rearrange the barn for chickens. It’s amazing.” Spencer is excited about how the county has been successful in drawing people from Highlands Ranch and other areas. Last year’s fair attendance was up about 36 percent. It’s much more fun than when he was showing at the fair as a kid and about the only people there were people competing. “It’s more exciting, more stuff going on,” he said. And the facility is much different. “We have put over $30 million in capital improvements in the fairgrounds,” Spencer said. And it continues with the stillunder-construction Heritage Plaza project, which is an outdoor concert and shaded area. Part of the plaza will have a memorial made of 6,000 bricks that people can buy for $250 a brick and have a family member’s name or business name put on it. Proceeds go to the Douglas County Fair Foundation’s endowment fund, to be used for unexpected expenses or capital projects for the fair, which usually breaks even, Spencer said. For more information, go to www.douglascountyfairandrodeo.com.

Gordon Ramsay, the chef who puts the terror into every restaurant owner, returns for a sixth season as he treks across the country to help struggling restaurants keep their businesses above water (and in some cases cockroaches, rats, etc). When all seems to be in desperate despair, the restaurant owners turn to Ramsay and his team for one last hope before having to shut their doors. Many of these restaurants are beyond repair, leaving Ramsay to face a nearly impossible task. Some will close their doors, others will get back on their feet, but all are calling on Chef Ramsay to wake them up from their “Kitchen Nightmares,” airing at 7 p.m. Mondays on Fox 31. You’ll have chances to view local operations, after Ramsay’s “Kitchen Nightmares” made two stops in the Denver metro area last month. The kitchen commander visited Pantaleone’s on July 26 and Old Neighborhood in Arvada July 27-30. Be afraid, be very afraid! The Old Neighborhood has been an Arvada institution since 1980, serving a diverse menu of American, Mexican, Italian, French, Asian and even Cajun-inspired foods. Owners Alexa and Randy Kowalczyk are sure to be in for a test from Ramsay when it comes to Old Neighborhood’s gigantic menu. Pantaleone’s is a pizza and pasta restaurant at 2120 S. Holly in south Denver. Mr. On The Town and I visited Panteleone’s 10 years ago or so for a story he was writing on Denver’s best pizza and we left unimpressed. Still, many have raved about the pizza and pasta place owned by Pete and Paulette Fafalios. Look for the episodes later this summer on Fox 31. Best of luck to both restaurants!

American Ninja

Am I the only weirdo who watched “American Ninja” on 9News on July 22? Why? Because they filmed the segment in Denver a few blocks from my condo, but I knew nothing about it. The host is Matt Iseman, a Denver native. Iseman even talked about how happy he was to be back in his hometown during the show. The show is entertaining in the fact that it’s fiercely competitive while these folks compete in crazy stunts that defy all odds of gravity. The show is continuing at 7 p.m. Mondays. Rich Grant, the spokesmodel for Visit Denver, told me that the crew filmed all through the night roughly five weeks ago. The show was shot in Civic Center and really highlights downtown Denver in the dark.

Wicket games

Denver’s premier croquet tournament returns to Cherry Creek on Aug. 2 when 60 teams compete on the outdoor plaza behind Elway’s restaurant. Up for grabs is the Wicket and Stick It silver cup or in the individual categories, which include best dressed, best hat and best wicket shot. Professional croquet master Ron Eccles and his team of croquet referees will be on hand to provide instruction and insider tips. Prized categories include top three teams, best dressed team, best dressed male and female, best hat male and female and best wicket shot. Parker continues on Page 19

Golf fun for charity

I have had the rare privilege of being asked to participate (a.k.a. play) in the Hyde Park Jewelers charity golf tournament for the 14 years that it’s been in existence. But the night preceding the tourney can be even more of a reunion between athletes and journalists who gathered on July 21 at Elway’s Cherry Creek for an amazing dinner and event led by one of my favorite media personalities, Les Shapiro (host of radio and television). Not only was the dinner amazing — I’m saying steak and crazy corn with guacamole and pepitas — but our lovely “Table 26”

Because Les Shapiro is so good to me, I got to play as a “celebrity” fifth at Cherry Creek Country Club on Monday for the Hyde Park Jewelers Diamonds in the Rough golf tournament (presented by Rolex, where’s mine?) to benefit Youth Biz, Judi’s House and the Global Down syndrome. My patient teammates were David Blake (from the Colorado state’s attorney’s office and son of Ernie Blake, a blessing to our Denver community for his fundraising efforts), who was the best stick in our fivesome. Also deserving kudos was Abby Perlmutter (daughter of Congressman Ed Perlmutter), who can hit a mile-long drive — not Ed, but Abby. And rounding out our fivesome were brothers Gary and Steve Pettit, who own and run Starwest Productions out of Arvada. Check them out at: www.estarwest. com. Any way you slice it, we had a blast!

Here’s a Facebook post from Tim Jackson, the head honcho at the Colorado Automotive Dealers Association, regarding his unfortunate bicycle encounter: “The Eagle has ... crashed. Misfortune! While in Newport. R.I., for biz meetings, I was going cycling early mornings. On Friday at 5:30 a.m. on a speedy downhill I hit loose gravel and took header into back of Honda Civic. Spent 12 hours in ... Emergency Room and Level 1 Trauma Center. Broke back, wrist, hand, finger, and wearing 2 braces and a cast for 2 mos. Made it back to (meetings) before flying home today. Trying to avoid breaking string of 28½ years w/o sick day!

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com When Andrew Lunsford was 15, he saw “Phantom of the Opera” onstage, and although he remembers not being happy about it, he knew all the words because his sister played the record constantly. “I learn best through my ears,” he said. That led to a visit to “Les Miserables,” where his jaw dropped when that chandelier fell. He got a CD. Another CD in the basement was “Opera’s Greatest Hits.” He sang along. He played a guitar at 15, but couldn’t read music. He married and had a young family and a growing business in construction — “I also had a passion for business.” Then the bottom fell out of homebuilding and his business cratered. “It might be fun to learn an aria,” he thought and his dad took him to Rockland Music in Lakewood. “Looking for an opera song” — “You mean an aria?” the clerk wondered. He talked about “tenorish arias” — “sad, depressing ... empty chairs, empty tables … the baritone always gets the girl.” His bankruptcy lawyer had heard him sing and suggested he look into performing at the Brown Palace Hotel, where he sand “Nessun Dorma” from “Turandot” and “This is the Moment” from “Jekyll and Hyde.” “I sang in `Beauty and the Beast’ for Performance Now,” he recalled, and was invited back for “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” A new journey had begun.

He thought of his feet standing in the same place as great singers from the past. He just finished at Indiana — at age 34 — and has a number of engagements on his calendar as he starts on a professional career as an operatic tenor. In May 2014, he will sing with Opera Fort Collins, with Kimberli. He closed by saying how very much the support from the guild has meant to him. “It means we have a chance.” “We give away more money than any comparable organization in the country,” said active member Jane Gibson. Denver Lyric Opera Guild membership is open to all who are interested. The group meets monthly through the academic year, at various venues, for “Opera on Tuesday” — lunch and an opera-related program. It also hosts a Master Class and Preliminary and Final Competitions each year. (March 2014 dates are announced.) The competitions, at Bethany Lutheran Church in Englewood in 2013, are free and open to the public — offering a chance to hear wonderful young voices.

Colorado Scottish Festival turns 50 Haggis, whiskey, Nessie, bagpipes descend on Ranch By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Grab your kilt and get ready for some bagpipes. The 50th annual Colorado Scottish Festival is just around the corner. Slated for Aug. 10-11 in Highland Heritage Park in Highlands Ranch, this year’s festivities will feature Highlands Games, haggis tasting, drum, dance and Bonny Knees competitions, games for the kids, live music, and of course, Nessie. Expecting to draw between 10,000 and 12,000 people over the two-day celebration, festival director John Thornton said each year the Celtic party gets a “wee bit better.” “It’s pretty darn exciting,” he said. “This thing started as a family picnic with just a handful of people in a park up near Conifer, cooking some hot dogs and drinking some beer. It’s morphed into a festival that attracts people from all over the world.” The festival outgrew its Conifer roots by the early 1980s, and made the move to the Colorado School of Mines’ athletic complex. It wasn’t long, Thornton said, before it outgrew the school grounds and in 1990, about the time he started running the show, the event moved to Highlands Ranch, where it’s stayed put ever since. “It’s really a family event,” Thornton said. “Unlike a lot of festivals that center around a lot of beer drinking and things like that, we try to cater to all ages. After all, the

Battles, games, whiskey, dogs and music all will highlight a weekend of fun at the 50th Annual Colorado Scottish Festival in Highlands Ranch. At the midday ceremonies that kick off the Colorado Scottish Festival, all the clans march in prior to the air being filled with bagpipes. This year marks the 50th year of the festival. File photos kids of today are the Scottish enthusiasts of tomorrow.” For those looking to cool off on a hot summer day with an adult beverage, no fretting is allowed, the dog-friendly festival will have adult beverages available on site. Celtic rock group Angus Mohr will also perform from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Aug. 10. Promising more events than ever before packed into two days, Thornton said the festival is a great opportunity to learn more

about one’s own Celtic heritage, regardless of whether it is Scottish, Irish or British. “People can come on down, have a taste of the ol’ Scottish soul food, haggis, and if you are an adult you can have a wee bit of whiskey to wash it down with,” he said. For more information on the festival, including a complete schedule of events, visit www.scottishgames.org or call the festival hotline at 303-238-6524. The festival is from 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Aug. 10 and 9 a.m.

to 5 p.m. Aug. 11 at 9651 S. Quebec Street in Highlands Ranch. Single-day tickets, available on the site, range from $9 to $18 with multiple options available for seniors, kids, and adults who wish to spend an entire day on the grounds or just attend the Saturday concert. Children 6 and under receive free admission. Volunteers are still being sought for the festival, and Thornton said for four hours of service, volunteers get in for free for the remainder of the day. If interested in volunteering, please call Thornton at 303-5236469.

Women’s golf on the upswing Solheim puts spotlight on advances in sport By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Many of the elite players from the Ladies Professional Golf Association and Ladies European Tour will be heading to Parker for the Solheim Cup later this month. The biennial, prestigious match-play tournament pits 12 U.S.-born professionals against 12 European counterparts. Colorado golf fans will see accurate drives, pinpoint approach shots and clutch putts during the event, which will be held Aug. 13-18 at the Colorado Golf Club. The statistics show these players are hitting longer and scoring lower than ever before. But are the elite women of today really more skilled that the top players of yesteryear? That’s a debatable topic, because golf balls and equipment keep improving and make it easier for those golfers who have correct swing techniques to flirt with or better par. “Overall, more women are playing the game globally,” said 59-year-old Denver resident Hollis Stacy, who won 18 LPGA tournaments and collected four victories in majors during her 26-year career. “The same scores are winning on the LPGA and European tours. Golf is more competitive. There are more people shooting those low scores and winning. “What happened in the game is the equipment is much better. The skill levels have remained the same. We had women on the tour drive the ball 270 yards. If we had the same equipment and balls the players have now, the drives would be in the 300s.” Donna H. White, an LPGA teaching professional who played 15 seasons on the tour and won three events before retiring in 1992, claims today’s players are taking advantage of opportunities. “I am quite confident given the ball of today and agronomic grooming of fairways and greens that Mickey Wright’s scoring average would be 67 or better,” said White. “I don’t think players today are any more skilled. I believe they have been exposed to greater opportunities than mine or previous generations.” Wright won 82 tournaments in 14 years on the LPGA Tour, including four U.S. Women’s Opens and three LPGA Championships. She retired from the tour in 1969 and won four consecutive Vare Trophies, the award that goes to the player with the lowest scoring average. The lowest scoring average for Wright was 72.46 in 1960. For the past 16 seasons, the LPGA’s Vare winner has had an average of 70.21 or lower. In fact, no winner has had an average higher than 71 since 1977. White credits better competitive exposure, technology and fitness for the improved statistics for current professionals. “My era was the first to benefit from Title IX,” explained White. “Beth Daniel, Nancy Lopez and myself were able to attend college and gain invaluable competitive experience prior to joining the tour. Today kids can play in a tournament starting at age 4 every weekend. Tour players before me had to join the tour to compete. I couldn’t play soccer or baseball in my era. Today girls can play any sport they want. The skills and competitive maturity transfers nicely to

Fast facts about the Solheim Cup

LPGA legends Annika Sorenstam and Liselotte Neumann, co-captains for the Solheim Cup’s European team, talk about the tournament at the Colorado Golf Club in Parker. Photo by Chris Michlewicz golf. “The ball is the most influential technology advancement. Also video analysis. Health and fitness was always important to me. I ran and trained but few of my fellow tour players would join me. Then in the early-mid ‘80s , the health boom happened and we had fitness vans on tour weekly.” Mike Scanlan, LPGA Director of Media Communications, didn’t have the chance to watch some of the LPGA’s former standouts. “Whether or not players on the LPGA today are better than those in past generations is a subjective question,” he said. “I think the depth of the LPGA is certainly greater than it’s ever been thanks in large part to the growth of the game globally. Scoring averages are between one and two strokes better than they were in 1980, but advancements in technology must factor into that debate. Whether you look at 1950, 1980 or today, the best players in the world are playing on the LPGA.” Janet Moore, a five-time Colorado stroke play champion who spends part of the year in Illinois as Wheaton College’s women’s golf coach, has watched women’s golf and the skills of players grow in the state. “I’ve seen golf in Colorado grow over the years and I’ve seen the caliber of play improve greatly,” said Moore. “It seems like the juniors are getting younger and younger and better and better. That’s very exciting. “I started playing when I was 10. I played because my family played. From what I’ve seen, the game has grown and the interest has grown for young girls. The caliber of play has improved. Just in the high school ranks now you need three or four good players to do well. It has changed quite a bit. I played on my boys high school team.

They didn’t have a girls team. I went to Wheat Ridge High School and they let me play on the boys team.” Colorado Women’s Golf Association Executive Director Robin Jervey noted enhanced play in Colorado tournaments. “We run 10 state championships, and looking at who plays in the championship flights of those events, the handicaps of the elite players have been going down,” said Jervey. “And there is more depth.” Globalization of the LPGA tour, better equipment and the tour’s attempt to promote physically attractive players has made women’s golf more appealing, and events like the Solheim Cup may spark a desire for more women to start playing. “I know when the Women’s Open came to Cherry Hills in 2005, they had record crowds,” said Jervey. “It only had to help interest in the women’s game because it got people excited to see people of that skill level right in their own backyard. Both the CGA and CWGA have been offering discounts to our members to purchase tickets to the Solheim Cup. “People going to the Solheim Cup get to participate in something that probably won’t come to Colorado again. The Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup move around quite a bit. With it going overseas and back every two years, there’s a slim chance it would wind up in Colorado again, or if it does, it will be a long time from now. People should take advantage of this opportunity.” Moore agrees. “I would think having a prestigious event like the Solheim Cup in Colorado would certainly make a positive impact on the golfing community in general,” she said. “I think it would spur interest.”

The Solheim Cup, featuring 12-player women’s teams from Europe and the United States in a match play tournament, will be held Aug. 13-18 at the Colorado Golf Club in Parker. Here are some things you may not know: • Kids get in free. All youngsters age 17 and under who are accompanied by a ticketed adult receive free admission to the Solheim Cup. There will also be a Solheim Cup for Kids program, an organized schedule of activities such as a scavenger hunt, face painting, daily drawings, interactive golf lessons and a behind-the-scenes tour of the event. For more information, go to www. solheimcupusa.com • First-tee shenanigans are part of the fun when attending the Solheim Cup. Unlike a typical tournament, the first tee is the place to be and you might even hear “Yankee Doodle” being sung. When players tee off each day, the atmosphere is raucous with fans from both sides yelling, chanting and singing songs to encourage players on the respective teams. • The three captains for the European team — captain Liselotte Neumann and assistants Annika Sorenstam and Carin Koch — are Swedish. “The three of us know each other very well,” said Sorenstam. “There will be some Swedish discussions so nobody will know what we’re talking about. We’ll keep that strategy to ourselves.” • European assistant captain Annika Sorenstam is married to Mike McGee, who is a U.S. citizen. “I told him you can come,” she said, “but only if you cheer for Europe.” • The United States has won eight of the 12 Solheim Cups and the Americas are 6-0 in matches played on U.S. soil. “Having the crowd on your side is huge,” European captain Neumann admitted. “Obviously that will be one of the challenges for us. Coming into the U.S., the crowd will be big and not too many will be cheering for us. We’re trying to bring as many friends, family and fans that we can. We just hope the Europeans that come are really loud.” • Juli Inkster has earned the most points for the United States in Solheim Cup matches. Inkster scored 18½ points in nine Solheim events (15-12-7) for 54.41 percent of points earned. Meg Mallon, this year’s U.S. captain, won 16½ points (13-9-7) with 83.33 percent of points earned in eight Solheim tournaments. For the Europeans, Laura Davies played in all 12 of the previous Solheim events and won 25 points (22-18-6) with 54.35 percent of points earned.
