Cabela’s opening draws about 5,000 Hunters, campers and curious gather to formally open Lone Tree store By Jane Reuter Parker resident Joe Folmar and Elizabeth’s Chris Alward suffered through a cold, windy Wednesday night in the Lone Tree Cabela’s parking lot. Thursday morning, that earned them spots near the front of a line a few-thousand-people in length. “We slept in our lawn chairs, tucked into a little ball,” Folmar said. “It was probably about 50 degrees with 30 mph winds. I think it’s worth it. Now, it’s just what kinda goodies are we going to get?” Cabela’s gave gift cards in varying amounts — one for $500 — to the first 500 people in line for the Lone Tree store’s Aug. 15 grand opening. Campers started showing up at the store Aug. 13, store officials said. By the time the doors opened at 11 a.m., they estimated 5,000 people were waiting in a line that stretched all the way around the 110,000-square-foot building. Another 5,000 more gathered several miles north at the Thornton store, which opened simultaneously. Lone Tree’s store, at 110,000 square feet, is slightly larger than Thornton’s, and even surpasses the 85,000-square-foot Sidney, Neb., store in size. Most in line said they were longtime Cabela’s customers, many of whom previously had made the long journey to the Sidney store. Cabela’s is headquartered in Sidney. Some were hunters, some campers and some just curious. “I think we mainly came because it’s fun to people watch,” said Golden resident Kerry Bostwick. “This is really fun. Everyone is so laid back.” “I’m excited to look at the clothing and shoes and not have to guess at the size,” said Littleton’s Randy Alldridge, who in the past was a Cabela’s catalog shopper. Rock music blasted across the parking lot, and cart-pushing Cabela’s employees doled out water bottles and doughnuts to the waiting customers. While tour buses deposited customers at the back of the store and the overflow parking lot at Havana Street and RidgeGate Parkway threatened to overflow, store employees rallied inside. Football in hand, Cabela’s regional retail manager Diane Uhlenkamp revved up the more than 200 staff members and corporate visitors crowded inside the store’s massive main hall. “It’s Super Bowl time,” she said. “It’s gon-

Take great care of those folks out there because that’s what we’re here for.” “This has been (founder) Dick Cabela’s dream — to have a store in Denver,” Cabela’s COO Michael Copeland said, adding the opening of two stores simultaneously exceeded that vision. “We’ve already set some records this week. I don’t know what they put in the water in Denver.” Copeland led employees in a cheer, asking, “Who are we?” “Lone Tree, Lone Tree, Mile High Great,” the staff roared in return. Moments before the doors opened, store, county and city officials addressed the huge crowd, most of whom were so far from the doors, they couldn’t hear the speeches.

Cabela’s is “a perfect complement to the world-class retail we have down here,” said Lone Tree Mayor Jim Gunning, urging the crowd to remember the day was a celebration of Cabela’s. “So when you walk in, don’t be stingy.” County Commissioner Jack Hilbert took Gunning’s advice to heart. An avid outdoorsman, Hilbert said he spent about $1,000 during a preview event at the store and another $100 on opening day. “This is fantastic,” he said. “You don’t see a grand opening in Douglas County like this.” “Awesome,” County Commissioner Jill Repella agreed. “I’m extremely proud. The site exceeded my expectations, the store exceeded my expectations, the grand opening exceeded my expectations.”

By Jane Reuter After an event one vendor called a black mark on the city that left many participants vowing never to return, the Taste of Lone Tree’s future is uncertain. The sixth annual event, held Aug. 10 and 11, was plagued by rain, food and alcohol shortages, decreased vendor participation and an apparent shortage of volunteers. Board members for the Lone Tree Chamber of Commerce, the event’s organizer, asked recently hired executive director Linda Harmon not to comment, and instead issued a three-paragraph statement Aug. 15. “We are disappointed that the event did not uphold the high standards many have come to expect when attending and we apologize for your frustrations,” the statement read. “A Taste of Lone Tree needs to reflect positively on the City of Lone Tree and its many offerings.” The chamber plans to hold a debriefing on the event in the next couple of weeks, board member Donna Russell said. The event’s future, “is certainly one of the questions we will be discussing,” she said, adding the chamber welcomes participation in the as-yet unscheduled discussion. Visitors complained about a variety of issues, including a lack of tables, seating and vendors, changes in the ticket prices, sample sizes and a fenced-off VIP area some found lackluster. Mother Nature inflicted the harshest blow to the event. A Saturday night rainstorm that left the Lincoln Commons ground muddy prompted organizers to delay Sunday’s opening an hour. As volunteers scrambled to spread mulch, hundreds gathered in the parking area near the front gate — too far from the entrance to see signs explaining the delay. Lone Tree Brewing Company co-owner John Winter said his employees were given poor information on numerous points, including anticipated turnout. By mid-day Saturday, the brewery was tapped out of the beer it had planned for both days, with no ability to get more until Sunday. “I really don’t ever want to see our city, our community, subject to this type of mess again,” Winter said. “This was such a black mark on the community, I’m truly embarrassed. Unfortunately, most people see the Taste of Lone Tree as a reflection upon the city. People expected a nice event. It didn’t turn out that way.” Frustrated as he is, Winter said he would be there for a 2014 Taste of Lone Tree. “This is our back yard and I’m not going to abandon it,” he said. “We need to be a standup community that makes it right. If this is to continue, we can’t have a duplicaEvent continues on Page 9

Go ahead, help make someone’s day They stand on a corner, three teenage girls in colorful summer dresses, their hands held high and clutching posterboards in neon green and pink scrawled with cheery messages: “Find the good.” “Smile - U - matter.” “Stay positive.” “Honk if you’re happy.” And many drivers do, creating an intermittent cacophony of horns of varying timbres and tempos. The girls respond with wide smiles and spirited fist pumps. Kinzi Kuhloie gives a thumbs-up as one driver leans on the horn repeatedly in a long series of honks. “Yeah!” she says excitedly. “They’re really pumped!” Kinzi is 17 and she’s been sign-holding, as she calls it, for two years. Her motivation is uncomplicated. “Life can get overwhelming and so many things can build up that you don’t find the good,” she says. “This reminds you to look for the good . . . and remember that it’s there.” Kinzi and her friends, Alyssa Hayne, 16, and Emily VonDongen, 19, have hit the streets in Highlands Ranch with their signs about twice a week this summer. The positive response, they say, keeps them coming back. “We’re making people happy,” Alyssa says, “one sign at a time.”


Kinzi, Alyssa and Emily are part of a growing grassroots crusade to spread positive thinking. She got the idea from a good friend, a student at Mesa State University in Grand Junction, who started a club to promote positivity by holding signs. In Anacortes, Wash., in May 2012, the Happiness Sprinkling Project was born when people gathered at a popular intersection and held signs saying “You are loved” and “Yes oh Yes.” The move-

ment to “sprinkle happiness” through sign-holding events has since spread to 20 cities and two countries, according to its website. Last year, in Washington, D.C., a 29-year-old man campaigned to make people smile by standing at street corners with friends holding posterboards declaring “Honk if you love someone,” “Be happy” and “Don’t be so hard on yourself.” Passersby loved them back. These spontaneous, informal events fit neatly into the emerging field of positive psychology and the study of happiness. Instead of trying to figure out why we feel sad or depressed, positive psychology focuses instead on how we can become happier and more fulfilled. The world-renowned founder of positive psychology, Dr. Martin Seligman, directs the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania. (You can take the free authentic happiness test on the center’s website at He contends that happiness can be analyzed into three measurable elements —positive emotion, engagement and meaning — and that the ultimate goal is to reach a state of well-being. What Kinzi and her friends are doing may not be earth-shattering in terms of establishing lasting happiness, but creating moments that make us smile or laugh or lift our spirits can make a difference that matters. Kateri McRae, an assistant professor at

the University of Denver who researches emotions, notes that studies show our brains are wired in a way that tune in more quickly to negative information. “Evolutionarily, negative information is usually more critical to deal with — and to deal with quickly — and so our brains process negative information a little bit faster,” she says. For instance, “If we discover there is something that wants to eat us out there, (the brain tells us) we should run as fast as possible.” Our brains hone in rapidly on causes of negative emotion, too. “We tend to pick out a `frownie’ face out of a sea of smiling faces pretty quickly,” McRae says. “Negative emotions can even further narrow our attention and . . . remind us of other negative things,” generating a feedback loop that keeps circulating unhappy feelings. But those same reinforcing effects manifest themselves with positive emotion also. “Being in a positive mood tends to make you more aware of the more positive things around you,” McRae says. “Remembering positive things tends to remind you of other positive things.” What Kinzi and her friends are doing, McRae says, can be clinically described as “benefit-finding” — encouraging people to look for the hidden benefits in life — a component of many therapeutic interventions. “You never know what is going to send somebody up, flip around a downward spiral into an upward spiral,” McRae says. “There is potential a sign could do that. My best guess would be that it helps a small portion of the people who drive by. You never know what’s going to turn someone’s day around. . . . Sometimes, you just need a reminder.”


For Kinzi and her friends, much happi-

ness comes from making others happy. Yes, there have been people who flip them off or yell “You suck!” as they drive by. Kinzi’s reaction: “It’s really unfortunate you guys think that way, but you need the love the most.” But by and far, reaction is overwhelmingly positive. “Some guy pulled over last week and gave us $20,” Kinzi says. “He said, `You deserve some lunch.’ That was cool.” Another driver once parked to say: “I was having a terrible day and your sign completely turned it around and gave me hope.” And the driver of a Wonder Bread truck tossed out a box of muffins. Kinzi has plans to start a club that would take the positivity from the signholding to another level, something longer lasting — “the idea if I can change your day, you’ll change somebody else’s day.” But, on this afternoon, the girls enthusiastically wave their signs in the hope of bringing a little joy to someone who could use a pick-me-up. One driver shouts through a window: “Have a good day!” “Yeah!” Emily shouts back, glee in her voice. “You, too!” A car with two young men stops, waiting for the light to change. The driver leans over and yells: “What are you guys doing this for?” Emily grins: “To make you guys happy!” He pauses a moment, looks at her, then: “Thank you for making my day.” And he eases the car into the intersection, the smile on his face celebrating a moment of unexpected and simple pleasure.

Chess gains fans in Douglas schools Instructor says game expands critical thinking and other skills By Jane Reuter Lior Lapid believes in the power of chess. More than just a game, Lapid said, it’s a nontraditional way to teach kids critical thinking and math skills. Lapid has introduced dozens of Douglas County School District students to the game through summer camps and chess clubs launched at several elementary schools last year. He plans to continue the clubs with the new school year. “I would welcome him back,” Coyote Creek Elementary Principal Gigi Whalen said. “The kids really loved it. And I think (chess) has a lot of math and problem solving that gets kids to do critical thinking.” Lapid, founder of PALS Chess Academy, also started clubs at Heritage, Fox Creek and Copper Mesa elementary schools, as well as the Platte River and STEM charter schools. “Chess has been my passion since I was a boy,” said Lapid, a Denver resident originally from Israel. “Chess is a lot more popular there. It’s now being taught as part of the school system in 30 countries, including Israel. My goal is to popularize it here.” Research backs up Lapid’s contention

that chess helps players recognize complex patterns, and increases problem-solving skills. Several national organizations are dedicated to promoting the game in schools. “Education in this country has been suffering to some extent and test scores reflect that,” Lapid said. “I’m not saying chess is the solution. But there is a lot of evidence that suggests it can help with critical thinking, planning ahead, arithmetic, algebra. “I’ve seen kids who are otherwise socially awkward or having problems with their self-esteem; chess for a lot of them gives them something to feel more confident about, and it’s also an alternative to video games.” Lapid’s teaching methods focus on keeping the game fun. “Sometimes chess is perceived as this very dry, mathematical activity,” he said. “I think you can teach it with story-telling and humor.” Ten-year-old Ashley Becker attested to the fun aspect. The STEM Middle School student attended a summer chess camp hosted by Lapid at Heritage Elementary. “It was really fun,” she said. “We even got to invent our own kinds of chess. When you have the right teacher, they can make the learning really intriguing.” Becker believes that learning carries over into the classroom. “Sometimes when I would come back from a chess game, I would feel ready for

Castle Pines parent Dion Boeke saw the social benefits when his shy son Torin attended a summer camp. “It was a different way to socialize,” Boeke said. “By the end of the week, he had really good friends there. I think that game really brought them together.” Boeke’s also sold on the game as an edu-

cational tool, and hopes to start a club at Timber Trail Elementary. “I think it teaches them to think strategically and critically,” he said. “It’s a way for them to actively learn as opposed to just passively playing video games or something like that.” Mile High Chess Club, Colorado Master Chess Inc. and Strategic Kids also offer chess programs in Douglas County schools.

Thunder rolls in memory of deputy 14th annual Ron King ride takes to streets By Ryan Boldrey A total of 71 bikes revved their engines in unison at the Robert A. Christensen Justice Center in Castle Rock, bringing Julie Widmer to tears. The 14th annual Blue Thunder Ride Benefit and Poker Run, ridden in honor of Widmer’s stepfather, Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputy Ron King, is part celebration of life/ part fundraiser for Douglas County children. “It took me a long time before I was able to participate in a ride,” said Widmer. “I would see a motorcycle and think of him, think of how he died. But once I got on the back of (a bike) and was surrounded by family and by people all here for the same reason I am, it really calmed me down a lot. This year’s ride was Aug. 18 and it wound from Castle Rock to Monument, east into Black Forest and north to Kiowa. The event raised $2,600 for the Ron King Organization’s scholarship fund as well as financial aid money to help select area high school students pay for things like school supplies, athletic fees and instruments. King, 14 years ago, was killed in the line of duty after being struck by a drunk driver. Finishing up his shift, King was riding his motorcycle south on US 85 back to the station when a van pulled out of The Matchbox Bar - which has since been leveled and plowed into him and his partner, Chris Washburn, who was riding with him. Washburn, now a sergeant with the department, wound up in the ICU requiring reconstructive surgery. King was pronounced dead at the scene. One of the first D.A.R.E. officers with the department, King had dedicated his life to helping people make the right choices when it came to using drugs and alcohol and getting behind the wheel, something that made his death that much harder for

Photos by Ryan Boldrey many. “Someone like Ron that gave so much to the community, trying to take care of our youth and trying to mentor and educate them on right and wrong and how to grow up and be a good citizen, to be stricken down by a guy who was abusing alcohol, it’s like something you see in a movie,” said Sheriff David A. Weaver. What has come out of King’s death is perhaps the feel-good ending to a tragic film. Each year, law enforcement and members of the community alike come together on their bikes for the memorial ride to help pay it forward to area youth. Last year, part

of the proceeds also went to help the family of fallen Englewood police officer Jeremy Bitner, who, similar to King, was killed in the line of duty by a drunk driver. “I would love to have more community members come out. That is who we are

supporting is their kids,” Widmer said. “I know there are a ton of people out there with bikes. I want to give them a reason to ride and come support something good.” For more information, please go to www.

‘Sassy’ Sept. 13 event to benefit task force By Virginia Grantier

Sponsors There was this Parker family: The father lost his job. A couple months later, the wife lost her job. And they had a mortgage to pay. So ultimately they sold their two cars so they could save their home. So then they had to depend on friends for rides to job interviews and to run errands. And then they needed help so they could feed and clothe their kids, as well as help paying utility bills. “I get emotional,” said Nani Lindig recently, a Douglas Elbert Task Force volunteer who choked up momentarily while relating that family’s situation. The task force was there to help the family, as well as the roughly 15,000 other people per year it helps who need emergency services, said Lindig, coordinator for the Sept. 13 Sassy Soiree, a major annual fundraiser for the task force. And that’s why she hopes people will be interested in attending the fundraiser. She said the task force is one of the few human service organizations in this area. And the task force, among those organizations, is the one that is a kind of a one-stop-shop-

ping help center of emergency services — providing food, housing, short-term help with utilities bills and other services from their Castle Rock headquarters at 1638 Park St. That’s the main reason. The other reason to attend is because the event, the Sassy Soiree, is great fun, she says. There will be auctions, a fashion show, luncheon, clothing and jewelry boutiques. Some items are donated - such as cases of wine from local wine sellers, gift cards and golf excursions. But many of the items are treasures found from the task force’s thrift shop that volunteers have put aside for months for this event. Things like mink coats - like the one knee-length coat that sold for $200 at last year’s event. And the diamond ring that a man bought for his fiancée for $100. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 13 at the Douglas County Events Center on the Douglas County Fairgrounds. Tickets are $45, or $400 for a table of eight. The deadline to buy tickets is Sept. 6. To buy tickets or get more information, call Kathy at 303-688-1114 at Ext. 14.

Coroner’s effort to get DNA in cold case works Fingerprints of victim will enter FBI database By Virginia Grantier

The hands of an exhumed body, buried near the body in a sealed plastic bag, have become an essential tool that might result in the future identification of the murdered teenaged female found 20 years ago in southwest Douglas County near Rainbow Falls Campground. “We were thrilled,” said Douglas County Coroner Lora Thomas about recent lab results. Thomas’ staff was able to rehydrate the skin in the hands and now there are usable fingerprints, which will be added to the FBI’s database. In addition, the University of Northern Texas, using samples from the hands, have been able to obtain a complete DNA profile of the person. Thomas said that she decided to exhume the body — which occurred in 2012 at Castle Rock’s Cedar Hill Cemetery where the girl is buried under the name “Jane drey Doe” —because of the many technological advances that have occurred since her murder. After it was exhumed, there was initial disappointment because the bones expected to reveal DNA information when tested at the University of Northern Texas were too damaged by water that had seeped into the grave, according to a coroner news release. But Thomas said a breakthrough happened when Douglas County Chief Deputy

Coroner Jill Romann realized the hands were found in a separate and sealed plastic bag, and so there was the possibility that ground water may not have destroyed the DNA. Romann mailed samples from the hands to the university and the coroner’s office was notified recently the lab had been successful. And so Jane Doe’s DNA profile now has been entered into a couple of databases including the university’s and the FBI’s. The unidentified girl, found near a campground, Thomas between Woodland Park and Deckers off of State Highway 67, was 5 feet 7 inches tall, 150 pounds, had shoulder-length brown hair, and investigators believe she had died within the previous 72 hours. The girl was wearing a Harley-Davidson T-shirt and metal and stone jewelry. Investigators believe she was between 16 and 19 years old. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has declined to release her cause of death, citing the ongoing investigation. The case was closed without naming a suspect. She remains the county’s only unidentified murder victim, and Thomas hopes to change that. “Everybody has family,” Thomas said in a past interview. “If one of your children disappeared and you never knew what happened to them, how would you feel? We’re just trying to figure out who she is in hopes we can tell her family where she is.”

County hits No. 20 on CNN Money list Douglas, Broomfield lauded for growth in employment By Ryan Boldrey With an unemployment rate down to 5.8 percent, companies moving in at an unprecedented level, weekly wages higher than anywhere else in Colorado, and Sterling Ranch in the on-deck circle, it should come as no surprise that Douglas County cracked CNN Money’s Top 25 list for “where the jobs are” this past week. Ranking counties for job growth between the years of 2010 and 2012, Douglas County came in at No. 20 on the list, boasting a 9.1 percent uptick in growth over the three-year time period. Broomfield County, the only other Colorado county on the list, came in at No. 15, having demonstrated a 9.7 percent growth in jobs. The list, published Aug. 12, praised Douglas County for “building up businesses and building out homes,” while mentioning new arrivals such as TriZetto, Visa and Redwood Trust as well as the recently-approved Sterling Ranch development for creating hundreds of jobs each across a wide spectrum of trades. A lot of those specific jobs haven’t even arrived in the county yet, something Douglas County Commissioner Jill Repella has been quick to point out. That may represent further proof that many of the existing companies in the county have been able to increase their number of employees, while construction jobs have poured in as well. Other recent arrivals such as Hitachi in Inverness, Cabela’s and Charles Schwab in

Lone Tree and new hospitals in Castle Rock and Highlands Ranch have also contributed to the economy, bringing in temporary construction jobs and thousands of new positions around the county. While the new hospitals relate directly to the continued growth of the county, Repella recently said the way in which the county altered how it did business once the recession hit is a driving factor in why the county is doing so well economically. “Four years ago, we knew we were facing a very, very different time in the history of Douglas County,” she said. “We had to change how we interacted with the business community and really create a very business friendly culture.” The result, she said, has created an “upward spiral” that has continuously helped land large corporations as word has spread on how the county bends over backward to speed up the permit process and listens to the needs and desires of interested businesses. Earlier this month CNN Money also recognized the Douglas County town of Parker when it named it the No. 12 “best place to live,” while ranking the top 50 towns with populations of less than 50,000. In 2012, when communities of 50,000 to 100,000 were measured, Castle Rock came in at No. 17 and Highlands Ranch at No. 21. Leading the 2013 list for job growth was Columbia County, Ga., boasting a 14 percent increase in jobs from 2010-12. Columbia was one of two Georgia counties on the list, with Gwinnett placing ninth. Joining Colorado and Georgia with two counties in the Top 25 were Texas, Virginia, Florida, Utah, Alabama and Tennessee. To view the complete list, please visit

Candidate roster changes as election draws closer Field narrows in one race on concerns surrounding split vote By Jane Reuter To avoid a potential split vote during the November school board election, one Douglas County School Board candidate already has dropped out of the race. Others may soon follow. Stephen Boyd, of Larkspur, who’d filed his intention to seek the District D seat, said he won’t move forward with his campaign. His decision followed contact from board opponents and Douglas County Republicans. “I don’t want to split the vote, and I met with people who I think have a better chance of winning,” Boyd said, adding he most likely will support Julie Keim for the slot. “So I don’t mind backing off and letting them go.” Lynne Butler, a vocal opponent of the current board, said several individuals aiming for major change on the board spoke with candidates in crowded races about narrowing the field. “If we can flip the board, we will raise morale and bring back the focus into our classrooms,” she said. “But there’s no way to do it unless you have one candidate.” Butler and others don’t want to see a repeat of 2011, when they believe a split vote between two

like-minded candidates put board member Craig Richardson on top. Richardson won with almost 46 percent of the District A vote. Susan Meek and Kevin Reilly combined for 54 percent. “It’s my opinion people will not make the same mistake again,” Butler said. Chairman Craig Steiner said Douglas County Republicans aren’t asking anyone to step down. The local party interviewed candidates and is endorsing a slate of Republicans who, like the existing board, support education reform. “We did send out some followup questions basically saying, `If you are not endorsed, will you consider withdrawing and endorsing our candidate?’” Steiner said. “We certainly aren’t telling them not to run, we’re just asking them if they’d be willing to do that.” Nick Land, a 2013 graduate of Chaparral High School who is running against incumbent Meghann Silverthorn and Ronda Scholting in District G, also has been encouraged to reconsider his campaign, Butler said. Land did not return calls or emails requesting comment. Scholting, who opposes much of the current board’s actions, said she’s focused on her campaign. “I think there’s some concern when you have a whole lot of choices,” she said. “You always hope folks are educated, and have an idea who’s going to be best for the schools.”

Keim, who questions the district’s current direction, said she and the other District D candidates have talked about the race. “But there’s no grand plan,” she said. “We know from past experience what does or does not need to happen. It’s a matter of us working that out among ourselves.” Board member Carrie Mendoza now holds the District D seat; she has not yet filed to run for her seat. Other District D candidates include Kevin Leung, John Peterson and Judi Reynolds. Both local Republicans and board opponents believe they need to win all four seats. Douglas County Parents, a community group whose goal is to elect four new board members, said they are not actively working to narrow the candidate field. “While Douglas County Parents will endorse candidates, we have no influence over who will or will not run,” steering committee member Laura Welch said. “Once candidates are announced, we will research who best supports public education and will meet the needs of all our children.” Three candidates also are running in District B for the seat now occupied by term-limited president John Carson. District E incumbent Doug Benevento so far is unopposed. To be on the fall ballot, each candidate must by Aug. 30 submit a petition with 50 signatures to the Colorado Secretary of State.

Douglas County Republicans endorse school candidates Party backs two incumbents, two others for positions that are legally nonpartisan By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews. com The Douglas County Republicans are endorsing incumbents Doug Benevento and Meghann Silverthorne, along with Judi Reynolds and James Geddes in November’s school board election. Like Benevento, Silverthorn and the rest of the current Douglas County School District board, Geddes and Reynolds are Republicans. Geddes, a University of Colorado regent, seeks the District B seat now occupied by termlimited board president John Carson. The Sedalia resident is a surgeon who practices in both the Denver area and Summit County. Reynolds, recorder for DCSD’s District Accountability Committee, and a Castle Rock resident, is running for the District D seat, now occupied by Carrie Mendoza. Mendoza, of Castle Pines, was appointed to the post

in March after former board member Dan Gerken resigned. Reynolds was a finalist for the appointment. Though Mendoza has not made a statement about her candidacy, she also has not filed a candidate affidavit with the Colorado Secretary of State. The local party voted on its endorsements Aug. 17 after weeks of candidate interviews, and months of recruitment. The chosen candidates are those “most likely to support the principles of the Republican Party,” local party chairman Craig Steiner said. They’re also those most likely to support the current board’s push for education reform. Colorado state statutes prohibit a school board candidate from running “as a candidate of any political party,” and political affiliation is not included on the ballot. But they can campaign as a party member. The Douglas County Republicans endorsed the seven current board members in the 2009 and 2011 elections.

Governor touts school-finance reform tax hike Rally brings out supporters, detractors of measure headed for November ballot By Vic Vela Gov. John Hickenlooper gave a fullthroated endorsement of a school-finance reform tax hike at a Lakewood rally on Aug. 15, marking the beginning of a campaign behind what’s expected to be the most significant ballot question voters will decide on this fall. Hickenlooper was joined by other education-reform advocates at a Green Mountain High School rally that drew more than 100 supporters of an initiative that will create $950 million in new taxes that will fund an overhaul of the Colorado school-finance system. “I refer to this all the time as the single most comprehensive education-reform initiative in the history of the United States,” Hickenlooper said. “With this initiative, we’re building a public education system that’s going to serve as a model for the rest of the United States.” By passing Initiative 22 this fall, taxpayers would fund full-day kindergarten for all Colorado children and would provide more support for at-risk students and English learners. The initiative also aims to reduce class sizes and provide greater funding equality for school districts across the state. Hickenlooper was joined at the rally by other supporters of the Colorado Commits to Kids campaign. They included Jefferson County Schools Superintendent Cindy Stevenson, who said that “an additional 3,000 5-year-olds will have free full-day kindergarten” in the county, and that at least 1,000 at-risk Jeffco children will have access to free preschool, if the initiative passes. Colorado Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia echoed Stevenson’s call to pass the ballot measure, saying, “We know that not all kids enter school on equal footing.” “But if we want all kids to graduate and all be ready for higher education we need to be sure we can provide the level of individualized support that not all districts can afford to offer,” Garcia said.

Initiative 22 would raise taxes on all Colorado taxpayers. The two-tiered proposal would raise income taxes to 5 percent on everyone earning $75,000 or less. Those who earn over that amount would pay 5 percent on the first $75,000 in taxable income and 5.9 percent on taxable income above $75,000. Colorado’s current income tax rate is a flat 4.63 percent, regardless of income level. Hickenlooper said that Colorado is one of the lowest-taxed states in the country and will remain so, even if the initiative passes. But opponents of Initiative 22 were quick to jump on Hickenlooper’s comments. “I think it’s interesting that the governor comes to the county that will get the least return on its investment,” said Jefferson County Schools Board of Education member Laura Boggs, who attended Hickenlooper’s speech. Boggs says that Jefferson County taxpayers will pay at least $130 million in taxes, but that the school district will only get about $60 million in funding if the ballot initiative passes. “He stands in our backyard, where our children, if this passes, are worth less than 50 cents on the dollar,” she said. “I find that interesting.” Curtis Hubbard, of the Colorado Commits to Kids campaign, countered Boggs, saying that the initiative will result in more than $600 in per-pupil funding for students in Jefferson County, “which is an investment that we believe taxpayers will support.” Across the street from the rally, a small group of Initiative 22 opponents attacked the “ostensible reforms” that will occur if the ballot question passes. But mainly, they argued that Coloradans “won’t have the appetite for this type of tax increase.” “It’s just more money going into a bloated system that’s failing,” said Kelly Maher, a coalition member of Coloradans for Real Education Reform, the campaign that’s fighting against the initiative. “We need to reform the system first before we increase taxes on Colorado families.” Initiative 22 ballot organizers claim to have turned in more than 160,000 signatures of registered voters, nearly double the

First funeral home in Ranch opens Director brings 27 years of experience By Ryan Boldrey When Mike Heflebower opened the doors to his brand new hearse and funeral home recently in Highlands Ranch it was yet another first for the 32-year-old community. “When Highlands Ranch was first zoned, it was zoned for a funeral home with preparation, a crematorium and a cemetery,” he said. “But it grew so fast, they zoned right over the top of it and never reallocated land for it.” Heflebower, a licensed embalmer and funeral services director of 27 years, will have to use third-party services outside of Highlands Ranch to accommodate embalming and cremation, and with no cemetery inside the community’s borders, there will be no burials close by, but the home, located at 8955 S. Ridgeline Blvd., is open. Heflebower Funeral Services has already begun hosting on-site memorial services, viewings, celebrations of life and funerals and, according to its director/owner can hold up to 75 people comfortably for services. If the service requires more people than that they will waive the costs involved and help you find the right place. A Castle Pines resident, Heflebower has worked in and managed funeral homes and mortuaries in Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado, spending the last eight years in Colorado. He played college football and studied pre-med at Hastings College in Nebraska, before attending mortuary school in Kansas City. Comparing his job to that of a wedding planner, as he will happily arrange for all accommodations from flowers to music, the fourth-generation Coloradan said he is glad to be operating a smaller home after experiencing both extremes.

Mike Heflebower recently opened the first funeral home in Highlands Ranch, located at 8955 S.Ridgeline Blvd. Photo by Ryan Boldrey “In some of the larger places, you are a number, just the next one in line, they don’t take the time to be personal with you or make your service special for you,” he said. “I couldn’t stomach that. Having grown up in a small town, you do things on a handshake; your word is your word. When you leave we want you to be our friend.” Heflebower, who knows that hello can be one of the toughest things after a loved one dies, said he felt a spiritual calling to be there for others in a time of need. “When the phone rings, you leave and you don’t know when you are coming back,” he said. “You always have to keep in mind, that’s somebody’s wife, or mother, or son, or daughter. ... A lot of people always want to be able to be there for someone at a time like that, that’s what we specialize in.” For more information, visit or contact 720344-6087. Office hours are 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday - Friday and by appointment on the weekends. Heflebower remains on call 24/7.

However, the secretary of state’s office announced the day after the rally that it will have to review the signatures line by line to determine whether the measure makes the

ballot. That’s because the verification of a random sample of petition signatures fell into a range that requires such a review. The secretary of state’s office has until Sept. 4 to complete its review.

opinions / yours and ours

Local politics better without partisanship Across Colorado, budding candidates for city and town councils and school boards are wrapping up the process of gathering signatures for their nomination petitions. These citizens are working to get their names on the ballot for this November’s election, and ultimately, they are trying to win a spot on an elected board that comes with little or no pay. Voters will pick from among these candidates without a party affiliation listed for the candidates. Further, a search for candidate information on the Secretary of State’s Tracer website yields the term “nonpartisan” next to the category “party.” Indeed, these are officially nonpartisan elections they are hoping to compete in. But don’t be fooled: There are parti-

our view san races being waged for municipal and school board offices in this state. Colorado law does not prohibit a candidate from campaigning as a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or member of any other party. In other words, a candidate can tout that he or she is a member of a certain party, secure that party’s endorsement and even run among a slate of candidates looking to grab or maintain power for that party on an elected board. And voters who have been paying attention are not likely

to need a party affiliation listed on their ballots to know who represents Team Blue or Team Red or Team Other. While it is not illegal, we believe this process violates the spirit of election law. The real spirit of serving on a city council or a school board, as we wrote in an editorial last month, should be a noble calling to public service — to make a community better. It is not promoting the platform of a major, national political organization. We believe local politics should be about people, not parties. It is particularly a shame when partisanship rears up to narrow the pool of candidates in an attempt to prevent votes from being split. Sure, when a party encourages someone not to run, it is a pragmatic move in that it increases the likelihood of

achieving a victory. But it also suppresses diversity of thought and likely keeps some very well-intentioned, capable citizens from public service. Don’t get us wrong. We’re not saying every local campaign has been taken over by partisanship. Just too many — regardless of what that number is. For now, we encourage candidates who feel a true calling to serve to stick with it. There’s nothing wrong with being a member of a political party, but if you are truly dedicated to helping the community, don’t let your affiliation dictate whether you will seek office. If you win, don’t let it determine how you will serve. Come November, we encourage voters to simply choose the best person for the job.

Make healthy homework a habit

Something is hiding under the bed I have just returned from periodontal surgery and I am in no mood to labor my thoughts, but I have a deadline to meet, so I am going to plow forward with something. I may wander. I am still on painkillers. Most people are afraid of the dentist. In fact, in some polls, going to the dentist is No. 1 on the list of things we fear most. It’s always one, or two, behind public speaking. Snakes, flying, and Rachael Ray round out the top five. See what I mean? I’m daft. I don’t fear the dentist. I should get a room in his office. I have had surgery and extractions and root canals. I had cavities drilled when I was a kid before Novocaine. I don’t recommend it. Maybe you read “A Million Little Pieces,” James Frey’s Oprah mess that has a chapter about oral surgery without an anesthetic. It’s a lie, but it’s vivid. I had a lot of dental care without an anesthetic, so being numbed now is a blessing, even though it seems like dental care in my life has been non-stop. But it isn’t the dentist that I am afraid of. I thought I would give you my list, while I am still comfortably numb. And it’s all nonsense. Or drivel. Your next assignment is to read Pure Drivel. Steve Martin. All right, here’s my list, what scares me. Country music. Joel Osteen. Flo. Nancy Grace. Pop Tarts. Lunchables. Pat Robertson. Wayne LaPierre. Postconsumerism. The Dewey Decimal System. Discount sushi. Transparency. Kierkegaard. Buffalo Bob. Bologna. Kittens. This one is too easy, he scares everyone: Richard Simmons. Family Feud. Kate Spade purses. Cosmopolitan. Gene Simmons. Paula Deen. Chaz Dean. Parakeets. Viagra commercials. ABBA. Guys and Dolls. Emoticons. Light jazz. Non-dairy whitener. Plug-in air fresheners. Joseph Prince. Mississippi. Black Friday. Wind chimes. Suncatchers. Perfume. Craig Ferguson. Bowling shirts. John Travolta’s hair color. Chick-fil-A. Spencer’s. Shepard Smith. Misty May-Treanor. Kerri Walsh Jennings. Marie Callender’s. Aunt Jemima. Betty Crocker. Uncle Ben’s. Martha

Stewart. The View. This one is too easy too: Anthony D. Weiner. Florida’s Division of Elections. Speed trap on Yale between I-25 and Colorado Boulevard. The Sixth Step. Fajitas. Mojitos. Carly Rae Jepsen. Hallmark cards. Siegfried and Roy. Pinky Lee. Crocs. Skip Bayless. Dinger. Buddy Hackett. Aimee Semple McPherson. Hamburger Helper. Brent Musburger. Lower back tattoos. Flavor Flav. Jimmy Dean sausage patties. Texas politicians. Chuck E. Cheese. Chuck Norris. It’s a long list and it’s getting longer all the time. It’s crazy out there, man. When I was a kid, my biggest fear was skeletons that were alive and running around. I would have nightmares and go climb in bed with my mother and father. I am sure they loved that. Years later in a film class at UCLA, I watched Georges Méliès’ A Trip to the Moon and there they were: lots and lots of living skeletons running around like maniacs. Turbulence. Chinese tilapia. Top Ramen. PT Cruisers. Olive Garden’s Never Ending Pasta Bowl. Peep toe wedges. Flip-flops on my insurance agent. Dulcolax. Marilyn Monroe said, “Fear is stupid. So are regrets.” She’s right, but it’s a tough call. The past is always ready to visit me, reminders are on stand-by. It takes work to look forward, otherwise I am dragged at the ankles by something I can’t change. There is one place I can go where I have no fears at all, and even though it’s just off of the dining room, it took years and years to get there. I was fearful I would never make it. My studio. There is one final fear. Sometimes I scare myself. To be honest, I kind of like it. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident. He can be reached at

One of the questions my kids dreaded throughout their education was when I would ask this, “Do you have any homework tonight?” Of course they hated that question, I hated it too when I was growing up and my mother would ask me the very same thing. Well it’s that time of year again when kids of all ages are settling back into the school routine and homework will be inevitable. And I think that many students get uncomfortable about the question because they would much prefer to say that there was no homework assigned or just a very little bit so that they can spend time with friends and doing anything other than their assignments. At the end of the day the only person who really suffers is the student. Surely as parents we agonize over it a little too, but we can only do so much in the way of accountability. The student has to want to succeed and be an active participant in their own learning and growth. Homework is perceived as a “thing” that has to get done, when at the end of the day it’s really about work ethic and attitude. Homework is a behavior that drives success whether we are in school, at work, or trying to grow personally or professionally. You see, we can’t manage results, we can only manage behaviors. And it is in our school days that we develop this work ethic and positive habits that will propel us in our future endeavors. Anyone reading this column can probably look back at a time when you or your child procrastinated or just avoided a homework assignment or maybe a few consecutive assignments. The outcome was that we fell farther behind and playing catch-up was infinitely harder. And we can also look back at a time when we took the time to do the homework, and how amazing it felt when we breezed through a quiz or test. Again, it’s about the behaviors that

deliver results. And as we fast forward past our school years and evaluate where we are today in our career we can probably point to specific times when we fell behind at work because we didn’t do the little extra things at the end of our day such as planning and preparing, making lists, looking at our goals, or checking off what we had accomplished. When we view this kind of work as productive we can view our homework as being healthy. It’s when we have the attitude that we would rather avoid the behavior of a little extra work that we deprive ourselves of the feeling of accomplishment and we erode our beliefs in our own capabilities and what we can truly achieve. Learning and growing is something that is a constant part of our entire lives not just during our years of schooling. We should always be “on the grow” as we look to raise the bar a little each and every day. And healthy homework whether we are a student or enjoying a career is a great way to ensure our future success. Are you keeping up with your healthy homework? I would love to hear all about it at and together let’s continue to learn and make this a better-than-good week.

Pastors provide spiritual support I just hired a publicist to help me take my book sales and the Big League message, “Your Life Matters” to more people. Now I am surprised with the fact that I have a publicist and an agent. It always seemed that rich, famous people were ones with publicists and agents. Now I know that is not always the case. I also have an accountant that does my taxes and keeps my 501(c)(3) in compliance with the government. My dentist and doctor help me keep my mouth and body healthy. It is quite a team that I have to help me live life and take on challenges that are bigger than I am. Another important member of “Team Dan” is my pastor. Recently a situation reminded me how important my pastor is to me and what an important part of my life he is. This experience exceeded the normal Sunday sermon, as important as that is. Each week he seeks to hear from God in a way that is faithful to the Holy Scriptures so that he can bring a message that strengthens the lives of those who listen. It is not that I need to be told how to live as much as his message so often matches what has been stirring in my spirit because of the challenges of everyday life. When I

hear his message it is a confirmation to me, often expressed in a way that is memorable, of who God is and how important He is to me and my circumstances. There was a situation at work that troubled me. I was upset and could not find peace as far as what to do. Thankfully I ran into him at a coffee shop. Our relationship began at a coffee shop when the only empty seat on a busy Monday morning was next to him. That suits my lifestyle as I feel like the Lead Pastor at the “St. Arbucks” parish. I am at the coffee shop so often. He took time to listen to me for a few minutes then offered a perspective that I had not thought of, but was exactly what I needed to hear. I left, thankful that I had such a wise, Godly and caring influence in my life.

Throughout most of my adult life I did not have a pastor — I was the pastor. It was an honor to be called Pastor Dan but that side of the relationship did not give me the vantage point to appreciate the enormity of the contribution of a pastor’s work to the life of a parishioner. As a Hospice chaplain, there are more times when the benefits of my efforts in the lives and circumstances of the recipients are more quickly apparent. It is not easy work to stand with people at the dramatic time of their loved one’s sickness and passing from this life to the next, but it is rewarding to feel the value of my work. Nearly all of the churches in our town have a priest or pastor. Many have a staff of pastors with specializations. Youth pastors make it possible for students to have a pastor who they can go to with concerns that their youth pastor understands. Pastors of men’s or women’s ministries focus their efforts on subjects and settings that minister to their target audience. A relatively new specialization that comes in a larger church is a minister of Pastoral Care. Gifts of compassion and insight guide this person to listen, comfort and be present in the lives of the church family during sickness, divorce, traumatic

accidents and problems that are too complicated to share with the general public. While some Pastors have been derelict in their duties or disappointed their parishioners with ethical or moral failure, the vast majority sacrificially minister so that their congregation receives inspiration, insight and even correction so that God will be real and relevant in the lives of their parishioners. My taxes are too complicated for me to do them by myself. I can’t work on my teeth or prescribe meds to treat an infection. I need my dentist and doctor. My agent knew how to get a book published and his expertise benefited me and I hope my publicist will benefit me as much so sales will grow and the message will spread. But not everybody needs a publicist, but everyone needs a pastor and they are all eager to add another parishioner to their care. Dan Hettinger is director of pastoral services at Hospice of Saint John and president of The Jakin Group, a ministry of encouragement, especially to Christian workers. You can email him at or

Pride on the line for teams, fans Crazy outfits, loud chants part of Solheim Cup culture By Chris Michlewicz Golf is often thought of as an individual sport. It’s a little different when national pride is on the line. It was a constant theme among the LPGA’s best and brightest stars in the weeks leading up the Solheim Cup in Parker: fan support would be key. And, judging by the crowds at the opening round Aug. 16, those words were heeded. The throngs of fans who arrived to cheer on the United States came decked out from head to toe in red, white and dark blue. They stuck flags and pompons in their caps, painted their faces and proudly wore their nation’s colors. Joe Smith, who drove from Salt Lake City to the Denver area with his 10-yearold nephew, Tanner, on the Tuesday before Solheim Cup play started, planned ahead. The pair wore USA-themed floppy hats and shirts. During the Aug. 15 practice round, the Smiths kept count of how many people commented on their outfits, and were at 51 by about 3 p.m. It was their first trek to the Solheim Cup. The European team, meanwhile, enjoyed raucous chants from those who made the trip from the United Kingdom, Spain, Sweden and other lands. They haven’t acted like they are severely outnumbered. They donned the light blue and yellow uniforms worn by the European players, along with crazy wigs, flags and colored glasses.

European fans, shown Aug. 16, got the top prize for most flamboyantly dressed.

Joe Smith drove out from Salt Lake City with his 10-year-old nephew, Tanner, to show their support for Team USA at the Solheim Cup. The pair kept count of how many people commented on their attire and were at 51 when this photo was taken Aug. 16. Photos by Chris Michlewicz Coleta Salas, a 23-year-old on holiday from Spain with three friends, decided that the tournament offered an excuse to visit a part of the world she has never seen. “It was a good chance to come to the U.S. and Colorado,” she said. “I’ve always wanted to see the Rockies. This is a great place to see them from.”

The intense heat that bore down on the Colorado Golf Club in Parker wasn’t enough to quiet the spectators on the first day of competition. Just before the afternoon rounds kicked-off, the stands were packed with fans representing both sides. When the European backers began chanting “Ole! Ole! Ole! Ole!” and reciting the words to

“Nah Nah Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye,” the USA fans fought back, drowning them out shouts of “U-S-A!” Despite being down by two points after the morning session, and trailing early in the afternoon, the U.S. supporters didn’t relent. They yelled words of encouragement to individual players and applauded small victories in the hopes of building momentum. Aurora resident Nancy Peterson, who made the most of her four-day weekend, thrived off the tense atmosphere and says Team USA’s early deficit only made her cheer louder. “We’ve got to support our girls out there and show our national pride,” she said, before letting out a loud whoop.

Let chips fall where they may

Riding in possibly the coolest float in the entire parade, a trio of Western Welcome Week fans beat the heat with popsicles as they make their way along the parade route on Aug. 17 in downtown Littleton.



With horses, tractors, fire engines, marching bands and classic cars, the 85th annual Western Welcome Week Grand Parade made its way through downtown Littleton. With a tip of the hat to the past and a nod to the future, approximately 125 entries moseyed their way down Main Street to crowds stacked three and four deep. As the parade concluded, Main Street opened up for an afternoon of shopping, food and activities.

sellingboe@ourcolorado As lights at Vintage Theatre go up, Usnavi (Alejandro Roldan) is front and center of his little corner of Washington Heights, where we see his bodega, Rosario’s taxi service and Daniela’s beauty shop. An outline of the Brooklyn Bridge is at the rear. He raps about his neighborhood and the folks who live there — and serves sweet, hot café con leche to get the day started. It’s Fourth of July weekend and infectious background music soon has everyone dancing to a happy Latin-pop score. “In the Heights,” in its first local production, was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda as a college project to begin with, with book by Quiara Alegria Hudes. It won a Best Musical Tony in 2008, as well as Best Score and Best Choreography. Director Rebecca Joseph makes her directorial debut in Denver, although she has been stage manager and assistant director in the area.

As the saying goes, “there’s no such thing as bad publicity.” Especially free publicity. Boulder Canyon’s potato chips got a plug on cable TV’s “Breaking Bad” on Aug. 11 when a character in the AMC network series is shown munching on a bag of Boulder Canyon’s sea salt and cracked pepper chips. In Sunday’s mid-season premiere, Hank Schrader (played by actor Dean Morris), a Drug Enforcement Agency agent and brother-in-law of Walter White, the series’ chemistry teacher turned crystal meth maker - is digging into a bag Boulder Canyon’s chips. How did Boulder Canyon take the news that its product was featured on a hit cable series about cancer-stricken high school teacher (played by Bryan Cranston) turned drug kingpin? On its Twitter feed (@BoulderCanyon), the company wrote: “Now we know Hank’s got good taste in his snacks! We wonder what flavor Walt would like...?” and “Eating our chips clearly helps in the investigative process.” Boulder Canyon said it did not pay for product placement on the show. The Boulder Camera first reported the story.

Hideaway fundraiser for Laradon

Alejandro Roldhan plays Usnavi and Marisa Danniele Hebert is Abuela in Vintage Theatre’s production of “In the Heights.” Courtesy photo the first production, made an agreement with artistic director Craig Bond of Vintage and found actors who were as enthusiastic as she was about the piece. Parallel stories involve beloved Abuela Claudia (Marisa Dannielle Hebert), who more or less raised the orphaned Usnavi and good-natured cousin Sonny (Carlos Jimenez) who helps with the bodega. Kevin and Camila, who run the taxi business and their assistant Benny, who raps as he talks

with drivers and falls in love with their daughter Nina, who has been at Stanford. (Since he’s not Latino, he’s not acceptable to the parents — another storyline.) Usnavi is interested in glamorous Vanessa, whose dream is an apartment of her own in a better part of town. Singer Janessa O’Fallon brings a great voice to her theater debut as Vanessa. Weaving through the action and ongoing dancing is tagger Graffiti Pete, a rubber-jointed

Asad Clifton. Choreographer is Matt LaFontaine who has appeared onstage recently as the emcee in “Cabaret” and Berger in “Hair.” The ladies in the hair salon next door — moving out because of high rent — make another colorful vignette with gossip, song and dance. While there are some stressful moments, the general effect is joyous and warm. One loses track of the story on occasion with so much going on, but the production is just so pleasant to watch, that you figure it out later. In the end, Usnavi, who has been contemplating a return to the Dominican Republic with Abuela, proclaims “I’m home!” Midge McMoyer Smith, the keyboard-playing music director was joined by a live band, including the trumpets needed for the salsa and merengue rhythms in this most enjoyable score.

The Hideaway Steakhouse in Westminster is hosting a great fundraising event, “Discover the Hideaway,” from 4:30 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 25. The event will raise money for Laradon, a children and adults with developmental disabilities and other special needs.

The Museum Outdoor Arts in Englewood has a new exhibit and a new logo: MOA (the “of” is dropped). The logo was adopted in the hope that patrons will better understand the museum’s mission, which is much more than just outdoor sculptures. “We also offer indoor galleries and studios, as well as arts education programs, film and external collaborations” said a recent press release.

An The second, “Weather Suspended,” opened Aug. 3 at the has aMOA indoor gallery on the second floor of the Englewood nver,Civic Center. It will run through Oct. 19, accompanied by s lov-two separate individual exhibits by Sally Stockholder (photographs in the back gallery) and Virginia Maitland (paintings, in the atrium). Twelve interns from across the country spent eight weeks in the spacious MOA studios, developing interpretations focused on the themes of “abstracted” and “weather.” Lead artist was the versatile Cory Gilstrap of Denver, who worked with interns to develop seven joint installations and 12 individual 2-foot by 8-foot panels that each interpreted a chosen weather-related word. Joint projects include: • Cloud Walk,” a large cluster of white Tryvek strips, suspended from the ceiling and reaching the floor, shimmering with every bit of breeze. The visitor is invited to hold one’s hands in a prayerful position and walk among them, surrounded by whiteness and light. • “Water Line,” a massive square papier mache, painted block, is also suspended from the ceiling, with detrius beneath, created from papier mache and paint. • As one enters the gallery, a breeze created by banks of matched, black electric fans, spins hundreds of clear plastic whirligigs of various sizes, fastened to walls on both sides. “Wind Shadow,” the installation is called and the effect is magical. • “Weather Terms,” a list compiled by interns, is posted with an artists’ name next to each: Drought, Frost, Hail, Humid, Hurricane, Lightning, Monsoon, Overcast, Scorcher, Spring Rain, Sunshine, Thunderhead. These were the titles for the individual panels, which fill a wall. The visitor is invited to guess the title, then lift a flap to check for correctness: • In the White Gallery, one finds “Tornado,” made with whirling suspended foam forms and video projections on the walls. • Projected on a wall in the main gallery is “Word Cloud” and next to a window, “Topiary” is a globe surrounded by a ring of growing, flourishing philodendron, which must be watered weekly. • “Wind Shadow” is the final joint project designed by the 12 interns under Gilstrap’s guidance. In the rear Sound Gallery a visitor finds a short film showing the interns at work as they “Designed and Built” the components of this really interesting exhibit — one that families, as well as artists, will enjoy.

THE PARADE ES OF HOtoM Sept 2 August 8

We’re inspired by classic Colorado architecture and passionate about craŌsmanship. Yet we geek out on the latest technology and building techniques. The thicker walls in our high performance homes allow for 60% more money-saving insulaƟon than in a convenƟonal home, and our roof is 6 inches higher than a typical home, so we get 2½ Ɵmes MORE insulaƟon in the aƫc. This reduces heat loss, and more importantly, reduces your energy bill!

Are you tired of working until 10:00, 11:00 or even 12:000 every night? Are your tired of explaining what window etching or paint sealant is? Are you tired of your sales managers making you be dishonest to customers, just to get the sale? Are you tired of missing time with your family on holidays? Are your tired of wearing a shirt and tie?

When you come to work for Purifoy Chevrolet, all of the above goes away.

We close at 6:00 every night and at 5:00 on Saturdays! We close for every Major Holiday, that includes Labor Day, Memorial Day and the 4th of July!

Goodbye grass, hello lower water use Homeowners in lengthy process of xeriscaping By Virginia Grantier Al and Denise Quartararo, raised in Brooklyn, working in Manhattan — where they said you could only see the sky if you looked straight up past the huge skyscrapers — wanted so much to live in Colorado. And so years ago, the newlyweds left their jobs and just moved, driving across the country in a green Ford Torino. Al, a lead systems analyst, IBM computer guy, quickly re-established himself. And more than 20 years ago they built their dream house in a bigsky spot next to a pasture of horses in the then sparsely populated Castle Pines North, now the incorporated city of Castle Pines. They hiked, they fished, they wanted to be part of nature, not against it. But they distinctly remember the person they had designing a landscape plan for them, who stood on their porch and proclaimed that “you want grass from one end to the other.” So they put in 8,500 square feet of that beautiful bluegrass sod. Now, they’re ripping out most of it, quite a bit at a time. “This is a precious resource,” Al Quartararo said, referring to water. “You don’t use 50,000 gallons of it (in a month).” But back when they still had all 8,500 square feet, that’s what they were doing. Now, they only have 2,900 square feet left, since through the past nine

Denise and Al Quartararo of Castle Pines stand in their backyard near some of their new plantings in a xeriscaped area. Photo by Virginia Grantier years they’ve been switching section by section to xeriscaping. Last month’s water bill showed they only used 17,000 gallons of water. The Quartararos said they moved from an area that had plenty of water, so they don’t think they were as sensitive as they should have been to the water issues here. But they also were raising kids, who used the backyard along with the neighbors for athletic competitions. So the grass was good then. But the children are grown and gone and the Quartararos are retired. They first started pulling out their sod from the side yards, and started redesigning. They’re self-taught, plus they do things like attend Castle

Pines North Metro District xeriscaping workshops. They’ve learned the importance of Triple X plants, which in the xeriscaping world means those plants that only need a half-inch of water every two weeks. Xeriscaping’s Double X plants, not quite as desirable, only need a half-inch of water every week. “If it’s not two x or three x, I don’t want it,” Denise said. Their accomplishments have led to a chance to win a contest. The Quartararos are entered in this year’s Castle Pines North Metro District xeriscaping contest. Winners, who are already saving water, will save more — with big credits on their water bills.

Former Olympian inspires young swimmers Misty Hyman makes splash in Highlands Ranch By Ryan Boldrey Before there was “Missy the Missile,” there was Misty Hyman, the 20-year-old swimmer from Arizona who stunned the world when she upset Susie O’Neill in the 2000 Sydney Games, capturing gold in the 200 butterfly and handing O’Neill her first loss in six years. About 150 people gave Hyman an Olympic-sized welcome Aug. 16 at Southridge Recreation Center in Highlands Ranch as the former champion took center stage yet again, delivering an inspirational speech to all those in attendance. Hyman, who spent the rest of the weekend putting on a trio of clinics for youth and adult swimmers, shared her story, which began as a 5-year-old asthmatic that couldn’t even finish her first race, to a girl who missed qualifying for the 1996 Atlanta Games by .003 seconds, to an underdog that shocked the world in 2000. “Sports are one of the best illustrations of human potential,” she told the crowd. “When you see Michael Phelps record his 22nd medal or a gymnast perform a perfect dismount you are reminded of what we, as humans, have the potential to do.

Jennae Kahler, 8, of Littleton, tries on Misty Hyman’s 2000 Olympic Gold Medal Aug. 16 at Southridge Recreation Center in Highlands Ranch. Photo by Ryan Boldrey “The reason we have races and the reason we live our lives is because on any given day, anyone who has done the work and has the courage to try their best has a chance to win. There are no guarantees ... it’s all a big risk. But as long you do your best along the way there are so many things

that are going to help you with the rest of your life.” Hyman spent a lot of time talking with kids in the audience about the importance of education and stated that no matter how far their sport or extra-curricular activity takes them, nothing would take them fur-

ther in their lives than their academics. Hyman, who graduated from Stanford in 2002, went to Switzerland to earn her MBA after retiring from swimming in 2005. When she returned to Arizona to write her master’s thesis, however, she began to get requests to give youth lessons and make public appearances and she landed right back in the world of swimming. “I thought I was hanging up my cap and goggles,” she said. “But a lot of times the best things in life happen by accident. “I had spent 25 years entrenched in swimming, studying it, training, living and breathing it. To have the opportunity to share what I’ve learned with the next generation, the passion, the joy, is very meaningful.” In addition to teaching private lessons in Arizona, Hyman spends between one and three weekends per month on the road, running clinics and giving speeches such as she did in Highlands Ranch. The latter gives meaning to more than just Hyman, too. “She’s my favorite swimmer,” said Gianna Herrera, 11, of Highlands Ranch, a fellow butterfly specialist who said despite not being born when Hyman won Gold, she last watched Hyman’s Olympic race on YouTube the weekend before. “I want to be just like her when I grow up. I’m very excited to meet her and swim with her.”

More than a fashion statement

Playing the libero spot means a different color jersey, skill set By Jim Benton Merry Hammack is frequently asked why she wears a different colored jersey. Hammack is a senior on the Ponderosa volleyball team, and a libero. “Everyone in high school asks me because they have no idea,” said Hammack. “Why are you not wearing a black uniform instead of a gold one? Then I have to go through and explain.” Libero is a position that is not limited by rotation rules and can substitute freely. That’s the main reason for the different jersey so the libero can be tracked. The libero, or bro as it is sometimes called, is responsible for passing, ball control, digs and getting to every ball she can possibly retrieve. She can’t, however, attack and can serve once in every rotation. “We have a black jersey and a cardinal jersey,” said Ponderosa coach Rob Graham. “The libero must have a contrasting color. The way we present it is we give our libero a gold jersey. So we call it the gold badge of honor. When you are wearing this, everybody in the gym sees that gold badge back there and understands that we as a coaching staff say that is our best defender and passer. Only one person gets to wear the separate jersey and it’s a pretty big deal for coaches.” Chaparral coach T.R. Ellis knows she needs a good athlete and leader to be the libero. “What I tell my kids is the libero has to be tons better than any other defender on the court because she is going to get to play six rotations,” explained Ellis. “So she has to be substantially better because you want her controlling the ball. She needs to be someone who is quick on her feet, can make great decisions, can read where the attackers are going to hit the ball and get there. “She has to be comfortable going for a ball outside of her body, stay on her feet if she can, but if she has to go to the floor, be comfortable playing the ball then hitting the floor and recovering on the floor. She has to have great hands and she has

to be able to put the ball up and be a great passer as well. She’s the quarterback of the defense.” Libero is an important position that often goes unnoticed except for the different colored jersey. The position was added to the game in the late 1990s to help create longer rallies. “It’s a thankless position,” said Graham. “It’s overlooked. If I was to make a team you might want to choose a big outside hitter as your No. 1 choice and maybe center right up there. With those players, you want a libero. Volleyball is definitely turning into a big person’s sport. The libero gives a home for somebody that is maybe undersized but has great speed and a great feel for the game.” Hammack, who is 5 feet 5, wishes more people would notice her play rather the odd jersey she wears. “It’s really a bummer to see people noticing only the big hitters and the middles,” said Hammack. “We should get some recognition for all

the hard work we put in.” This season in the Continental League there will be several teams hoping to gain recognition. Mountain Vista and Legend are two of the preseason favorites with

Doubles duty a secret of success Top program Cherry Creek knows importance of team play, strategy By Jim Benton

Cherry Creek has dominated Colorado boys high school tennis for the past four decades. The explanation for the Bruins’ supremacy is simple - good doubles play. Creek has won 38 Colorado state tennis championships in 41 years. The Bruins have crowned 117 state champion doubles teams, 28 in No. 1 doubles, 34 in No. 2 doubles, 31 in No. 3 doubles and 24 in No. 4 doubles. “Doubles is interesting,” said Creek coach Kirk Price. “High school-level tennis players generally love singles. There are those few boys that just thrive in doubles. They love it, love the strategy and enjoy what goes on in winning a doubles match.” Over the years, Price has adjusted the way he selects his doubles teams. “Historically, I always used singles to determine the varsity team,” admitted Price. “Over the years there were half dozen great, great doubles players who never got to play varsity because they were never good enough in singles to break into the top 11 but they were among the top two or three doubles players on the team. “A few years ago we changed. Now we use the singles challenges for only the singles positions. We use what we refer to as doubles clusters.” parral It takes a different kind of player in doubles to be successful. state “It takes kids that are able to evaluate k andtheir opponents and the weaknesses of ress. their opponents,” said Price. “I’ve had kids that were mentally so good in doubles and yet physically are not even close at times to the skills of the opponents. “They are not as good of tennis players

with their strokes or tennis game but they are so much smarter and know how doubles works that they become state champions defeating people that are significantly better.” Senior Jake Miller was half of the 2012 state champion No. 2 doubles team with Connor Petrou, who has graduated. “Doubles are fun but I really would like to play singles,” said Miller. “We won last year because we worked well together as a doubles team. Cherry Creek tennis philosophy is to be aggressive and we usually both moved up to take control of the net and the tempo of play. Of course, we both had to be ready to move back quickly if the opponent hit a deep shot.” Harshil Dwivedi is a junior who played last season with graduated Gifford Mellick on Creek’s state champion No. 4 doubles team. “I like to play singles but my experience in doubles helped me improve my skills as a tennis player,” said Dwivedi. “I learned how to make the transition from deep in the court to controlling the net. Chemistry is a key for a doubles team. Last year my partner and I clicked and worked together to cover the entire court, sometimes both at the net and sometimes one at the net and one back near the baseline.” Creek and Fairview are the expected to be the top contenders for the state championship this season but Mountain Vista has five returning state qualifiers plus outstanding freshmen Ben Antonsen and transfer Austin Groyoncowski. “Doubles pairings are very important in trying to catch those teams in the state of Colorado,” said Mountain Vista coach Jim Flanigan. “I believe that finding players who mesh well together is very important in doubles and that means in personality style as well as in playing style. “For my players it is very important to be good at the net and be willing to close off the net when playing doubles. Also high school tennis is one of the only places where players are part of a team and sometimes one must sacrifice to be part of that team and sometimes that means playing doubles.”

Coach - Kirk Price 2012 highlights - Won Class 5A state championship. Top players - Conner McPherson, Sr.; Jake Miller, Sr.; Noah Reiss, Jr.; Harshil Dwivedi, Jr.; Robert Hakulin, Sr; Zach Fryer, Sr. 2013 outlook - To say anything other than the Bruins will be a state championship contender would be foolish.

Fryer is back after taking a season off, some young players and transfers will add to the Bruins’ strength.

Freshman goalie Jack Sculze goes high to catch a shot at the net during the Aug. 14 Heritage team scrimmage. Goalies face shots from all angles and heights but agree the toughest is defending a penalty shot.

Facing a split-second decision Goalkeepers must be quick of mind and body when dealing with penalty kicks By Jim Benton Penalty kicks have been labeled as a nolose situation for soccer goalkeepers. Shooters are expected to score, and the pressure is on them. If the keeper should make the save, he’s a hero. “When I work with a goalkeeper I talk to them about watching any clues the shooter might give away like where they might look at the last second, where their plant foot is, if they open their hips or not,” said Legend coach Jordan Ivey. “Then I’ll talk to them about things they can do on the line that might throw the strike off a little. In the end though I tell them to go with their gut and go all out when they dive.” There have been several studies made on penalty kicks. One done at the 1998 World Cup, showed that on penalty kicks, including those in shootouts, 70 percent of the kicks went to the opposite side from the kicker’s dominate foot. A 2011 report published in the Journal of Psychological Science found keepers dove to the right 71 percent of the time when their team was losing and 48 percent when ahead and 49 percent when tied. ESPN’s Sports Science claims saving a penalty kick is one of the toughest tasks in any sport and cites statistics that World Cup goalkeepers correctly picked the direction of penalty kicks 57 percent of the time but saved only 22 percent of the shots. Legend senior goalie Eric Smith knows the chances of keepers stopping penalty kicks are not good. “The odds are definitely stacked against us,” he said. “You have four different corners to dive to and pray we pick the right one. Sometimes we get a little lucky. Otherwise you don’t really have much of a chance.”

Smith has learned some tips to sway the odds a little in his favor. “The first thing a lot of coaches actually teach you is to pick a side,” he said. “And then as you get more experience, take penalty kicks in practice or you start to get experience in games or in shootouts, you learn to pick up tell-tale signs of what way a person is going to kick the ball. “So I look at the shooter and see what way he is lining up, if he’s right footed or left footed, depending upon certain signals he’s giving me, his eyes or something I’ll pick a side to go to either high or low. Left high, I’ll pick that first, but when he runs at the ball if I see like his hips switch to the right side or see his approach differently, I’ll make a split second decision. But before he evens runs at the ball I’ll have a side picked if he doesn’t give me any other sign.” Valor Christian senior goalie Connor Georgopulos, a four-year starter, acknowledges that stopping a shot from a shooter 12 yards in front of him is difficult. “It is probably the hardest thing about being a goalkeeper,” said Georgopulos. “A lot people guess before the player even runs up to the ball. I don’t like to guess. I kind of wait until he runs up where he is opening his hips or where his foot is planted and make my decision that way. I have possibly a second to make a decision. “I’ve heard that is a no-lose situation but there are sometimes when you are close and you think you could have got there or you might have been able to get there. It still is a goal and you feel like you’ve lost but for the most part it is just luck so you really didn’t lose either way.” Cherry Creek coach Chelo Curi believes keepers need to pay more attention to the shooters than relying on luck. “Goalkeepers need to learn to recognize player movement in order to predict which way they are going to shoot a penalty kick,” said Curi. “They can also just flat-out guess one way or the other. However, there are certain clues top-level keepers learn in order to make a better educated guess on which way to go. Some goalkeepers are quite good at this skill while others are not.”

By Jim Benton It was a historic day on Aug. 18 at Colorado Golf Club, but it didn’t involve a miracle on the greens. Team Europe retained the Solheim Cup with an 18-10 victory over the United States and won for the first time in seven events played in America. The win marked the first time a team from Europe has won back-toback Cups and the margin of victory was the largest in the history of the event, which began in 1990. The United States went into the final day staring at a substantial fivepoint deficit. The Americans could not pull off a miracle comeback as the Europeans won 7½-4½ in the 12 singles matches played on Aug. 18. There were five singles matches that were halved, the most in history. “We took it to them and they couldn’t answer,” said Europe’s Suzann Pettersen who resides in Oslo, Norway. Pettersen was right. Team Europe played superior golf and putted much better on the quick greens. “They played some great golf this week and really deserved to win,” said U.S. captain Meg Mallon. “I give credit to them, they played well, had a holein-one (Anna Nordqvist on Aug. 17), a chip-in and we just didn’t have putts drop for us. The team gave it their all. I love my team. “This (Solheim Cup) is the greatest show in women’s golf. The way we played 16, 17, and 18 is what made the difference. It wasn’t for the lack of preparation because we played the golf course quite a bit. So it wasn’t like a surprise for us. It was just a matter of dropping putts on those holes and unfortunately it was the Europeans.” Over the last three holes, the Europeans held a 17-10 edge in holes won. “We just did not make the putts,” added Mallon. “I saw more putts go over the hole on our side. It wasn’t for lack of not having good rolls. We just didn’t make them. With such a young team (six European Solheim rookies) with nothing to lose, it just seemed like they were a bit looser, they were making more putts and we were not. And that’s what it came down to.” The Europeans wrapped up their second consecutive Cup victory on the 18th hole in the fifth singles match when Caroline Hedwall, a captain’s pick from Sweden who won a crucial half point to secure Team Europe’s victory over the United States two years ago in Ireland, once again delivered the clinching blow. She defeated Michelle Wie, 1 up, after coming back from a 56-minute lightning delay, with a 4½-foot birdie on the final hole. There were still seven matches left to be completed and all the Americans could do was play for pride. “I just can’t tell you how proud I am of all the players,” said European captain Liselotte Neuman. “They really played well. They just played tremen-

Hedwall defeated American Michelle Wie in the Singles Match at the Solheim Cup, held at the Colorado Golf Club in Parker. dous golf.” Hedwall won all five of the matches she played becoming the first player in Solheim Cup to do so in a single tournament. “I don’t know what to say,” said Hedwall, 24. “It’s unbelievable. We knew we could win here. I was really pumped up on 17 when they blew the horn (for the lightning delay). I went in and gave a little talk to myself and I went out there and I was just as pumped up as I was before.” Stacy Lewis and Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist had the honors as the first twosome to tee off and wound up halving an up-and-down match. “I was hitting good putts, they were just lipping out,” said Lewis. “That’s golf for you. You have to stay patient, stay positive. I hit a lot of really good shots. I felt fortunate to get a halve.” Charley Hull, the 17-year-old from Kettering, England, who is the youngest player in Solheim Cup history, picked up a point for Team Europe with a 5-and-4 win over Paula Creamer. “After the first day, I really got used to the golf course and I just relaxed and made quite a few birdies over the last two days,” said Hull who went 2-10 in her Solheim debut. “I really didn’t feel nervous. Because this is how I always look at golf, I’m not going to die if I miss it. Just hit it and find it and hit it again.” Creamer, one of America’s top players, didn’t have much positive to say.

“I just didn’t bring it,” she admitted. “The Solheim Cup brings the best and worst out of you.” Europe’s Carlota Ciganda whipped Morgan Pressel, 4 and 2, to set the stage for Hedwall’s decisive win. Team USA trailed the Europeans the entire three days of the competition, falling behind 5-3 after Foursomes and Four-ball on the opening day. The Americans closed to within 6½-5½ after the Foursomes Aug. 17, but disaster struck when the Europeans swept all four best-ball matches in the afternoon. The U.S. played well at times but not good enough. The Europeans made most of the big shots and big putts. The Americans had myriad putts roll inches past the cup or lip out. “Obviously, yesterday (Aug. 17) afternoon hurt us a lot,” said Lewis. “They holed putts when they needed to and hit the shots. There’s always pressure to win, whether we won it two years ago, whether we didn’t, whether we’re home, whether we are away. They’re (Europeans) getting better every year and they’re making this (Solheim Cup) what it should be. It’s good for the event.” The U.S. still leads the Solheim Cup all-time standings, 8-5, with the 2015 Solheim Cup scheduled to be played in St. Leon-Rot, Germany. “We have two years to get ready for Germany and we’re going to get that Cup back,” said Wie.
