Fall fest draws pumpkin pickers, wagon riders BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Selena Miesbauer said her favorite thing about fall is anything to do with pumpkins. So much so, she came to the Schweiger Ranch Fall Festival in Lone Tree on Oct. 5 in search of a pumpkin big enough to fit her 10-month-old daughter, Presley, for a photo op. The Miesbauers, of Highlands Ranch, had no such luck this time, but that didn’t necessarily rule out a cute pumpkin patch picture. The Schweiger Ranch Fall Festival is held annually during the first week of October. The city-sponsored event gave city folks a taste of life on the historic ranch with wagon rides, a petting zoo and a tour of the grounds and the ranch house. “We have such a great and unique venue we get to use here, which is really drawing to people,” said event planner Allisa Dailey. The Schweiger Ranch was founded in 1874 by John and Joseph Schweiger, two immigrants from Austria, according to the Schweiger Ranch Foundation website. The land was sold to RidgeGate Investments in 1972 and the ranch was converted into an educational and cultural facility in the early 2000s. Dailey said over the years the ranch has seen some updates to keep people coming year after year and the goal of the festival each year is to give people a place to take in fall right in their backyard. “The pumpkins, the petting zoo, wagon rides,” Dailey said, “are just the extras.”

No tolerance for red light runners in October Sheriff’s office sets policy in response to crashes BY ELLIOTT WENZLER EWENZLER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Douglas County drivers who are seen running a red light during the month of October will automatically receive a $111 ticket and a violation on their driver’s license. This is the first year the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office has implemented the month-long policy, said a spokesperson from the office. “We have seen an increase nationally in traffic fatalities as the result of violators running red lights,” spokesperson Cocha Heyden said in an email. The agency also began the policy as a response to complaints from citizens about aggressive driving, speeding and red-light violations. “We have seen these violations in so many Douglas County intersections, and the violations are not even subtle,” said a statement from Steve Johnson, the sheriff ’s office’s chief deputy for law enforcement. Zero tolerance means that if a deputy stops a car for a red-light violation, the driver will automatically receive a citation stating “failed to obey traffic control signal,” Heyden said. “Normally, the deputy has the discretion to issue a citation or give a verbal warning,” she said.

Douglas County drivers who are caught running red lights in the month of October will automatically receive a citation. For yellow lights, as long as the driver has passed the stop line while the light is still yellow, they aren’t likely to be cited, she said. “The issue comes up when the driver sees the light turn yellow and then

speeds up to try to make it and ends up running the red,” she said. “They are so focused on beating the light they do not pay attention to anything else around them (like) other drivers, pedestrians or cyclists.”


The citation will include a fourpoint violation on the person’s driver’s license. If a driver gets enough points, their license can be suspended or revoked, Heyden said.

‘His future was an open book waiting to be read’ 10-year-old found dead following custody hearing in apparent murder-suicide BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

The Lone Tree Police Department is investigating the deaths of a man and his son as a murder-suicide, as details about the father’s allegedly abusive relationship with the mother and son come to light. The two were found dead in a Lone Tree apartment about 2:30 a.m. Sept. 21, according to city officials. A previous day’s hearing likely would have resulted in giving the mother full custody of the child, the mother’s lawyer said. Anthony Tesoriero, 48, and his son, Ty, 10, were found dead at the Contour 39 Apartments at 9045 Yosemite St. by police officers. The officers were conducting a welfare check, according to a statement provided by the city. A police spokesperson said no notification to city residents or the media was given after their deaths were discovered because there was no threat to the public. The police spokesperson said no further information will be released as to the cause and manner of death until the investigation is complete and the final autopsy reports are made available. Ty’s mother, Jing Tesoriero, held

to come,” Jing Tesoriero said during the ceremony. “His future was an open book waiting to be read. A story... I looked forward to being a part of.” Caroline Cooley, Jing Tesoriero’s attorney, provided Colorado Community Media a certificate of findings from the Sept. 20 hearing. Cooley said the court was prepared to give Jing full custody of Ty following a series of violations outlined in the hearing. Of the alleged violations, Anthony Tesoriero changed Ty’s school without authorization from the mother or parenting coordinator and cut ties with a drop-in daycare for custody exchanges. The document outlines several instances of exchanges where Ty was resistant to go with his mother for various reasons, all of which, the document suggests, were caused by manipulation from the father. Jing Tesoriero said she missed 242 days of parenting time with Ty since May 25, 2018. Jing and Anthony Tesoriero divorced in Florida in 2015. Jing Tesoriero started a new relationship with her current husband. Anthony Tesoriero remarried as well. “Ever since that day (of the divorce),” the hearing document states, “Father has resorted to virtually every possible tactic involving threats, intimidation, slander, and harassment to destroy Mother’s life...ruin Ty’s relationship with Mother, and harass virually every professional who has touched this case.” The background of the case alleges Anthony Tesoriero tried to get his ex-wife fired from her job, created fake dating profiles under her name so she would be harassed, made false “confessions” on her Facebook page pretending to be her and stalked and harassed her on occasions “too numerous to list individually here.” Jing Tesoriero, her new husband and Ty moved to Colorado later in 2015, the court document shows. Anthony Tesoriero first contacted the Douglas County Department of Human Services on Oct. 30, 2015, making

accusations later to be deemed unfounded by both Florida and Douglas County authorities. The Douglas County Department of Human Services issued a dependency and neglect action because “the conflict between the parties was harming Ty’s wellbeing.” The same action recommended temporary custody be given to Jing Tesoriero and restricted the father to supervised therapeutic visits only. Jing Tesoriero’s new husband reported receving several threatening emails from Anthony Tesoriero. Jing Tesoriero also reported receiving text messages saying “kill yourself,” “push me any further & many will suffer” and “1 day it will be the last day 4 us.” On July 14, 2016, Anthony Tesoriero pleaded guilty to violating a protection order against Jing Tesoriero. The document provided a statement from a Douglas County Human Services caseworker: “There is concern that Mr. Tesoriero has unrealistic expectations of the child’s behavior and struggles to put the child’s needs before his own.” In September 2016, human services conducted a pyschological evaluation of Ty. The evaluator expressed a “multitude of concerns regarding Ty’s health,” the document reads. On Dec. 8, 2017, human services recommend a 50-50 parenting split for the time being. Douglas County Director of Communications Wendy Holmes released a statement on behalf of human services: “This is a devastating loss for the family and the entire community is grieving. As you know, state law prohibits release of information about child welfare matters. In situations like this, in accordance with state law, the State Department of Human Services will conduct a child fatality review. At the conclusion of the review, the state will publicly release their findings.” A public records request for the Lone Tree Police Department’s reports of the suspected murder-suicide was denied because the reports are incomplete at this time, according to a police spokesperson. “Ty has touched so many people’s lives in this community,” Jing Tesoriero said during the memorial. “I want everyone to remember his silliness and his goofiness because this is what Ty was and this is what we all want him to be remembered as.”

Transportation plan predicts growth patterns in Douglas County Maps lay out forecast of increases in households and jobs BY ELLIOTT WENZLER EWENZLER@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

In order to create the 2040 transportation master plan, Douglas County staff analyzed trends in household and job growth in the county. Maps displaying this data tell the possible story of the next 20 years, including which areas will likely expand and which will probably remain stagnant. In many ways, the job and household growth maps are very similar. In both maps, the west and southwest sections of the county are expected to have “low growth,” which means an increase in employees and households of less than 500, according to the map. Much of the central and southeast parts of the county expect little to no change in job and household growth. The areas that are projected to have increases of more than 500 in homes and jobs, labeled as “high growth,” are in the Castle Rock, Larkspur, Highlands Ranch and Lone Tree areas. In

HOW TO LEARN MORE ABOUT PROJECTED GROWTH Anyone interested in learning more detailed information about what level of growth their community is projected to experience can email Douglas County at some of these municipalities and areas, there are sections of high growth surrounded by areas of little to no growth and vice-versa. Some differences between the projected growth of jobs and households can be seen as well. While the amount of homes near Franktown is expected to experience high growth, jobs are not. The same is true for the northeast corner of the county. Over 500 new jobs are expected between Sedalia and Castle Pines but the same growth is not expected for homes. Pedestrian and bike paths The transportation plan also details bicycle lane and pedestrian walkway improvements for the next 20 years. For the 2021 to 2030 plan, there are eight planned projects, including trail construction by U.S. 85 between

Castle Rock Parkway and Sedalia and along the Parker area’s Mainstreet between Chambers Road and Jordan Road. It also outlines improvements to the bicycle lane on Havana Street between RidgeGate Parkway and Lincoln Avenue. Two other trails planned are on U.S. 85 between C-470 and Highlands Ranch Parkway and parallel with the railroad between the Castle Rock area’s Plum Creek Parkway and the Columbine Open Space and Trail. There are 10 additional bicycle/ pedestrian projects planned to be completed by 2040, including five new trails. One trail will be built to connect the Town of Castle Rock and Castlewood Canyon State Park. Two more trails are planned to be built along U.S. 85 with one running between Highlands Ranch Parkway and Sedalia and another going from Sedalia to the Castle Rock area’s Meadows Parkway. Other trails will be constructed on Daniels Park Road between U.S. 85 and Castle Pines Parkway and another connecting the Castle Rock area’s Plum Creek Trail and the Sterling Ranch Trail in the subdivision of that name.

Can lower rates help them? Refinancing or getting a home loan as a senior can be difficult, especially if you’re on a fixed income. The good news is that seniors CAN take advantage of lower rates right now, with a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), also known as a Reverse Mortgage.

School board candidates differ on arming of teachers, staff After school shooting, security is top of mind for board hopefuls BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

As the Nov. 5 election draws near, three candidates running in the Douglas County School Board election have taken a strong stance against the prospect of arming teachers and staff in local schools, while three others say they are open to discussing it. The different approaches to security come amid a school year that kicked off with debate over armed-staff policies after a local charter school began a program allowing some employees to carry firearms. Near the end of last school year, in May, a shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch thrust the community into conversations about school safety. One student died and eight others were injured during the incident. The following is a look at the six candidates’ views on

arming teachers and staff at schools in the county. District F Candidate Kory Nelson said arming teachers is not a priority for him but he’s open to discussing it for Douglas County schools. His opponent, incumbent and board President David Ray, stands staunchly opposed. Nelson stressed he’s more focused on bolstering the school resource officer program in Douglas County than he is exploring an armed-staff policy. But he’d be open to considering the issue as a board member if it’s of interest to the community. He doesn’t believe the majority of teachers want to carry firearms at school — his parents were teachers in Nebraska and his wife teaches in the district — but he’s not sure how the broader community feels on the topic. Nelson said armed teachers and staff is not a conversation the sitting school board has allowed to take place. “Do I think it’s the right decision, or the wrong decision?

Social media comments spur controversy


More than $70,000 donated to school board campaigns so far Candidates offer support for one another as Election Day draws near BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

Although candidates are distancing themselves from the term “slate” — which has been a popular approach to running for school board in recent elections — three candidates for the Douglas County School Meek Board have referred to themselves as “a team,” and the remaining three say they have similar ideas but are running individually. And as the six candidates enter the home stretch to Election Day, Nov. 5, campaign contributions are shedding Hanson light on how the nonpartisan races for the unpaid posts are shaping up. Incumbent David Ray, former Douglas County School District employee Susan Meek and former attorney and school volunteer Elizabeth Hanson have pooled resources to Ray

support one another in the election, Meek said, forming what Hanson characterized as a “team.” Lawyer Kory Nelson has publicly supported commercial pilot Andy Jones and says Franceen Thompson, a former STEM School Highlands Ranch parent, would bring good perspective to the board. Jones said the three candidates know each other but not well. Nelson and Ray are facing off in District F, Hanson and Thompson in District C, and Meek and Jones are running in District A. So far this election season, more than $72,600 Jones has poured into the school board campaigns. That’s nearly as much as the $77,325 total for the 2015 election, the last time six candidates ran for school board. In 2015, candidates spent nearly as much as they raised, putting Thompson $74,613 toward the election. Expenditures in 2019 surpassed $17,000 as of the last reporting period in September, but candidates have roughly one month left to ramp up spending before the election. Among individual candidates, Hanson leads the Nelson pack in the most mon-



The following are campaign contributions and expenditures for each of the six candidates in the Nov. 5 Douglas County School Board races. Figures are according to the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office and are as of the Sept. 30 filing deadline.

School board candidates share their views on multiple matters in Q&As.

District A Andy Jones — Contributions: $14,022; expenditures: $4,575 Susan Meek —Contributions: $14,185; expenditures: $820 District C Elizabeth Hanson — Contributions: $16,817; expenditures: $1,684 Franceen Thompson — Contributions: $6,912; expenditures: $2,237 District F Kory Nelson — Contributions: $6,329; expenditures: $7,229; loans: $1,990 David Ray — Contributions: $14,432; expenditures: $505 etary contributions, collecting $16,817 as of the Sept. 30 reporting period. Ray has raised $14,432, while Meek has $14,185 in contributions. Among candidates not on the Ray, Meek and Hanson team, Jones secured the most contributions with $14,022.16. Thompson has earned $6,912.00 while Nelson’s contributions came in at $6,328.90. The bulk of contributions to candidates are from people or businesses local to Douglas County. Jones, an airline pilot, received a number of

out-of-state contributions, many from individuals who listed their occupations as “pilot” or for airlines including United, American Airlines and Delta. Republicans holding local and state offices have contributed to Nelson, Jones and Thompson. University of Colorado Regent Heidi Ganahl donated to Nelson. Douglas County officials, including Treasurer David Gill, Coroner Jill Romann and Commissioner Lora Thomas, contributed to Thompson. State Rep. Kim Ransom donated to Thompson, Jones and Nelson. The local group Douglas County Parents, which is registered with the state as a political committee, has made non-monetary contributions to Ray, Meek and Hanson, whom they’ve endorsed. The group has donated more than $1,000 in items like Tshirts and yard signs to each of them. Education leaders, including current school board members, donated to Ray, Meek and Hanson, as well as individuals from neighboring school districts. Ray is the only incumbent to seek re-election. The election will decide if he will keep his seat and will determine who will fill the seats of outgoing directors Wendy Vogel and AnneMarie Lemieux, who are not running for second four-year terms.

Issue puts focus on charter schools’ autonomy


That’s not my priority. I’m willing to listen,” Nelson said. “I don’t know what our parents think because they haven’t been heard from.” Ray opposes arming staff in Douglas County public schools. Ray was traveling outside the U.S. at the time of the reporting of this article and answered questions via email. He said the responsibility to provide safe schools goes beyond school staff, and also includes first responders, fire departments, mental health providers and law enforcement agencies. “None of these agencies recommend arming staff, other than those that are trained and hired for the specific purpose of security,” Ray said. “Given that they are the experts in these areas, I support their recommendations.” He believes the district has “cohesive relationships” with the sheriff ’s office and municipalities and said, “we take their lead in recommending safety practices for the public and community.” Ray said he “might feel differently” about armed staff in areas where law enforcement coverage is sparse, but he does not support such a policy in Douglas County. Nelson said he opposes state-mandated gun-free zones because rural schools may have less law enforcement coverage and should be allowed to decide at the district level whether or not to arm staff. District C Candidate Franceen Thompson, parent of a former STEM School student, is open-minded toward arming teachers. Thompson said via email that children’s safety is too important to “allow irrational politics to take any option off the table without thorough consideration.” Thompson’s daughter was a senior at STEM at the time of the May 7 shooting that left senior Kendrick Castillo dead.

“I believe all security options must be on the table, including allowing certain staff who are willing and properly trained — and in cooperation with law enforcement — to be armed,” Thompson said.

When speaking with Colorado Communtiy Media by phone, Thompson said experiencing the STEM tragedy is why she chose to run but she’s always supported considering all secruity options.

Thompson’s position on the matter became the “tipping point” that Elizabeth Hanson, her opponent, said pushed her to run. Hanson said she chose to run mostly in hopes of improving the district’s employee retention and work culture. She has a background in labor and employment law. But arming teachers is an issue Hanson said she’s passionate about addressing. She’s firmly against armed staff “under any circumstance,” she said, and as she considered a run, learning Thompson is open to the idea of arming teachers and staff helped sway her toward adding her name to the ballot. She called arming teachers and staff reckless, dangerous and “a misguided effort to keep our children safe.” “There’s just such an element of potential human error,” Hanson said. District A When asked if he supports arming teachers and staff at local schools, candidate Andy Jones said he’ll work with various stakeholders to evaluate school security practices. Jones was traveling outside the U.S. at the time of this article and answered questions via email. “If I am fortunate enough to be elected to this school board, I look forward to working with my fellow board members and listening to staff, experts, the community and law enforcement to determine the best ways to keep each of our kids in every one of our schools safe,” he said. Jones’ opponent, Susan Meek, supports current district policy, which says the only people who can carry firearms at school are those hired specifically for security. She opposes allowing teachers and staff to carry firearms at school or school functions. Meek, who ran for school board in 2011 and worked as a spokeswoman for the Douglas County School District from 2009-11, said school safety is a key issue in this election and top of mind for those running. “I think it’s extremely important for all the candidates,” she said. “I’ve heard all candidates talking about it.”

RTD CEO Dave Genova. “We know we have a big role to play in that, and how we integrate with other options.” RTD will collect feedback from the public and consider expert consultation to determine a plan. Christina Zazueta, community engagement manager for RTD, said this will provide input to help RTD better optimize its current systems. Zazueta said RTD wants to hear equally from longtime bus and rail riders as well as those who don’t use public transit as much. “We realize how important it is to hear from riders as well as nonriders,” Zazueta said. “We consider them both part of our community and it’s everyone’s system … Even if it’s a non-rider, we want to know their experience that would make them consider using the RTD system.” RTD hosted the inaugural telephone town hall Oct. 2 to introduce the project. Each of RTD’s 15 internal districts will have its own telephone town hall to solicit feedback. Callers will be able to ask questions over the phone and answer questions about how to improve things like service demands, alternative transit options and RTD’s driver and rail operator shortage. RTD is no stranger to complaints from rail and bus commuters regard-

ing inconsistent arrival times and overall lack of service. RTD has said it does not have enough rail operators or bus drivers to handle RTD’s service demand. RTD serves an area that spans eight counties with a total population of 3.1 million. RTD owns 1,026 buses and has 58.5 miles of light rail track and 40 miles of commuter rail track. RTD is celebrating 50 years in operation. Light rail was introduced to Denver in October, 1994. RTD operates eight light rail lines and three commuter rail lines. The Denver Regional Council of Governments is also in the midst of drafting its 2050 plan, which will take into consideration input received through RTD’s Reimagine program. Jacob Riger, manager of long-term transportation at DRCOG, said the Denver area’s ensuing growth means addressing safety needs, first and foremost, while needing to consider changing technology and finding creative ways to build partnerships to help fund transportation projects. Riger said DRCOG and RTD have not announced specific long-term project partnerships yet, but said DRCOG will be fully participatory in the work RTD is doing. Riger said the DRCOG 2050 transportation plan is expected to be finished in 2021. “I could see a future where transportation solutions are customized to community needs,” Riger said. “I think we need to think differently about our transportation needs as this area evolves.”

There are no words for these classic films

ilents are golden. (Microsoft Word is telling me there’s a typo in that sentence, but it’s not true.) Silent films are golden to me. Many silent films QUIET and directors and performers were DESPERATION great, and most of them, except Charlie Chaplin, have been forgotten. Gore Vidal referred to it as “the United States of Amnesia.” Many silent films are far better than films that are being Craig Marshall made today. I have about 1,600 Smith cable channels, I watch six of them, and I can’t live without one of them. Turner Clas-

sic Movies. I was a film history minor in college: I couldn’t get enough of films then, and I can’t get enough of films now. Good ones, that is. I used to drive all over Los Angeles just to see a vintage film, like “Mr. Hulot’s Holiday,” or “Sullivan’s Travels,” or “The 39 Steps.” Turner Classic Movies spoils me. I don’t have to drive anywhere, and they are always open. Turner shows rarities I had never heard of, like “He Who Gets Slapped,” starring Lon Chaney, and “Jewelry Robbery,” starring Kay Francis. My film history studies naturally began with silent films, and because most of them were short (“two reelers,” they were called), we watched a lot of them. Every film history survey course

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A new America Wow! Roy Legg apparently doesn’t believe in free speech. In his letter he lamented that this paper prints letters from citizens who don’t share his opinion regarding armed teachers. If someone prefers psychologically screened and trained armed teachers who may have a chance at saving children, he thinks that is drivel and should not be printed. Censorship is not an American value. He goes on to set up a straw man argument about teachers blindly shooting through doors and maybe

hitting students trying to get to safety in a class room. Mr. Legg, one of the first rules taught in firearms training is to identify your target before you shoot. A formally trained teacher will know that rule. He further cites a STEM School security guard who accidentally wounded a student. That guard perhaps wasn’t screened and properly trained. In addition, he wasn’t supposed to be armed. Therefore, that incident lacks relevance to this discussion regarding trained SEE LETTERS, P13

Everyone has seen “Singin’ in the Rain.” Everyone should see “Sunset Boulevard.” “Sunset Boulevard” is on my Top Ten list. Look for Buster Keaton at the card table. Who? Keaton was just as good as Chaplin. He made a bad career decision, and drank too much, and disappeared, but then he married a woman who was 23 years younger than he was, and she is credited with saving his life and restoring his career. Keaton did all of his own stunts, and some of them were breathtaking. The most famous one, in “Steamboat Bill, Jr.,” required absolute precision, otherwise a twoton, two-story building façade would

begins with “The Great Train Robbery” and “A Trip to the Moon.” “The Great Train Robbery” was made in 1903, and it’s significant because of its use of then-unconventional techniques and devices, but it’s not particularly entertaining. “A Trip to the Moon” was made in 1902, and it’s still a dazzling example of film ingenuity. You may have seen the memorable shot of the space capsule landing on “The Man on the Moon’s” eye. Chaplin should be remembered. He was brilliant. I recommend “City Lights.” I have watched the ending 50 times, and I still get emotional about it. I also recommend Chaplin’s “Modern Times,” although it is not entirely silent. Appreciation is shown for silent films in two notable “talkies.”


Check yourself if you’re just checking the box

op performers never just check the box — and neither should you. We know when we are simply going through the motions, don’t we? We WINNING also recognize when WORDS we are doing something without passion or purpose, just kind of checking the boxes of life as we go along. It’s in the moment when we realize that our checking-the-box strategy isn’t quite getting us to where we want to be or allowMichael Norton ing us to do what we are capable of doing, that’s when we become motivated to take action. Top performers who excel personally and professionally never just check the box. They have a mindset to achieve personal excellence, a motivation to exceed professional expectations, and often find themselves inspiring excellence and top performance in those around them. Last week we talked about using disruptive tenacity to destroy our destruc-

tive behaviors and bad habits. Well one of those bad habits for some of us is going through our personal and professional life just checking the boxes. I am not referring to our to-do list or task list. We want to get those checked off for sure. What I am referring to are the important and meaningful things in our lives that help to take our game to the next level. Achieving personal excellence isn’t a result of checking the box or phoning it in. Achieving personal excellence is driven by our passion, it is fueled by our deepest desires, goals, and dreams. Whether we want to see a physical change, learn something new, or endeavor to explore and experience new things in life, we never get there by settling for where we are today. We reach higher, we see farther, and don’t check the box, we blow the box up. Exceeding professional expectations is very much the same as achieving personal excellence. Mediocrity becomes the norm when we get to work right on time and leave exactly when the clock says we should.

teachers defending their students. This is the new America we are facing. A diminished Bill of Rights, less free speech, a usurped Second Amendment, assaults on due process and people who are intolerant of anyone who sees things differently from their exalted opinion. Arthur Bentzen Castle Rock A crucial line of defense Why does this paper continue to publish letters from the gun rights crowd that are pure drivel? Let’s start with not letting another opinion even be published – that’s a good way to shut up debate. I’m going to try this again, going for less than pure drivel, with no straw man to shoot down. This time, I am the teacher, I have chosen to be armed, and I have all these students I’m responsible for. A lock-


Top performers aren’t driven by what time they come and go from work, top performers and those who exceed professional expectations are driven by results, not clocks. Top performers under-promise and overdeliver. These are the folks who don’t even know what “check the box” means, it’s not in their vocabulary. Inspiring others happens naturally for people who achieve personal excellence and exceed professional expectations. Just like positive people typically attract other positive people, winners often attract winners. Winners and people who want to get ahead tend to gravitate to those who are setting a positive example and delivering results. Top performers set the pace and usually do not like to be overtaken. And as they strive for even greater success, they are bringing others with them along the way. Some of us are motivated by the fear of loss or pain. We will not change, act, or react until we experience such great fear or potential loss. Others of us are inspired by pleasure

Remember, I am the teacher that chose to be armed and I know how to shoot. I am behind the desk, arms out in front of me on top the desk, gun resting on a couple books pointed at the classroom door. I could not be in a better firing position if I was at a gun range. Now the only rounds that go into the door will be the rounds that miss their target. And as before, I didn’t say I was shooting kids, but a gunman. Second point: Do you want that person protecting your loved ones to be using a gun with 10 rounds or 17? Keep in mind the active shooter is a bad guy and a coward, he knows 10-round clips are for the law-abiding folks. Common sense or pure drivel...

Either way, the fear of loss or pleasure of gain, when we are truly motivated, we never just check the box. Think about what it is you want the most in life. Take a moment and reflect on what you would like to do or have in life. Now, stop and take another moment and ask yourself if you are doing everything possible to realize your goals and dreams, if not maybe you are just checking the box. So how about you? Are you in top performance mode achieving personal excellence, exceeding professional expectations, and inspiring others? Do you need a little help or motivation getting yourself or your team there?

In 1965, a year before Keaton died, the Venice Film Festival paid tribute to him, and the longest standing ovation in the festival’s history — over 10 minutes — moved Keaton to tears.

story about the DougCo commissioners’ $10 million dollar fund for school safety. This lack of transparency begs several questions. What special skills do the commissioners possess that would allow them to make decisions regarding mental and physical safety in a school setting? I acknowledge Ms. Thomas’ prior law enforcement experience, but that does not carry over to

the modern day security and mental health challenges. My other concern is how did the DougCo commissioners insert themselves in a school system where there are elected leaders? Holding the money bag does not an expert make, but it sure raises concerns about whom the commissioners may “favor” with coins. Katie Barrett Castle Rock

LIFE Time to get in shape



Local trainers and coaches give advice on physical preparation Cameron Davis, owner of RockStar Fitness in Castle Rock, completes a goblet squat using a dumbbell. One can also use a kettlebell, he said. PHOTOS BY ELLIOTT WENZLER

Davis does one side of an “ice skater” exercise. He explains that to complete the routine from this position, you jump back to center then alternate to the mirror image of this pose.

Davis shows how to do “mountain climbers” using a Bosu ball. Broc Thompson, coach of the Jeffco ski team, recommends using this tool with multiple exercises to increase stability, he said.

Davis demonstrates one side of a mobility exercise he recommends for skiing. One should start with knees bent in the air and then alternate sides, he said.



s the Denver metro area’s temperature begins to drop, it’s that time of year again when the beach bod no longer matters and it’s the snow bod that needs some work. That’s why the staff at Colorado Community Media decided to go out and find tips from ski/snowboard coaches and personal trainers on getting in shape to hit the slopes. Those interviewed agreed that some of the most important things to keep in mind are cross training, eating right and taking it easy on the first few days in the mountains. They offered exercises, stretches, meal ideas and ways to avoid injury. Exercises to do at home When trying to decide what exercises and muscle groups to focus on before snow season, Michael Restivo of Colorado Mountain Club, based in Golden, breaks it down into three components: explosive movement, core strength and flexibility. All these components can be practiced at home or in the gym through different movements and exercises. Restivo likes workouts such as squat jumps, crunches and planks. Cameron Davis, owner of RockStar Fitness in Castle Rock, recommends squat pulses, which consists of standing, placing the feet just outside hip length apart, pushing the hips back and moving into a seated position then pulsing in that position, he said. This can be done for 60 seconds to three minutes, depending how much an individual’s body can tolerate, he said. “Ice skaters” are also good for preparing to ski, Davis said. To complete this exercise, one can do a one-legged jump with the opposing leg behind the body and the arms swaying accordingly, as if skating. For snowboard-specific exercises, Davis prescribes the extension squat, which is like a regular squat but when the person stands up, he or she goes up on the toes to work the calves as well. If a weight is available, he recommends goblet squats, which is a

regular squat while holding the weight at the chest. When standing back up, he suggests squeezing the glutes. This can be done 10 to 20 times, and it’s important to find a weight that feels challenging, he said. Broc Thompson, the ski coach for Jeffco Public Schools’ alpine ski club, believes it is important to throw some balance and instability exercises into a workout. That means adding tools like Bosu or exercise balls into basic exercises like planks, lunges and crunches. “Skiing is about reactive balance, you’re always dealing with a bunch of forces in a bunch of different directions,” Thompson said. The main muscle groups the trainers suggested focusing on include glutes, hamstrings, middle back and core. Outside of strength building, general aerobic exercises are also vital to avoid exhaustion on the hill. One way to prepare for the fatigue that comes with skiing and snowboarding is to find a nearby hill and start walking up it a few times a week, Davis said. Thompson believes the best course of action is to just stay in shape all year. Cross training with activities like tennis, hockey and cycling are his go-tos, he said. “My feeling is the best plan is to stay active year-round so when the season changes it’s just a little adaptation,” he said, “and not full-on getting into shape for the first time of the year.” Flexibility Outside of strength and aerobic exercises, it is also important to keep muscles loose by doing different stretches and mobility exercises, Davis said. Before doing any workout, including hitting the slopes, Davis emphasizes the necessity of doing movementbased warm-ups such as high knees, butt kicks and just trying to move joints in all directions. This can help prevent injuries. Another exercise is laying on the back with arms out and lifting the knees so that they’re at about a right angle then allowing them to fall to the right side then left side. This helps

loosen the back and allow for twisting while skiing or snowboarding. Yoga is also a great way to keep up strength and mobile joints, Thompson and Restivo said. Thompson, who is a stronger advocate of mobility exercises than muscle stretches, believes the hips and ankles are some of the most critical spots on the body to keep mobile for snow sports, he said. He recommends deep squats for hips and using a toe to “draw the alphabet” for ankle mobility, he said. Nutrition All the trainers emphasized staying hydrated and making sure to fuel your body during long days on the mountain. “One of my go-tos is my steel cut oatmeal with coconut oil in and maybe a protein shake on the side,” Davis said. “So you’re getting carbs, fats and protein.” For snacks on the slopes he suggests peanut butter, power bars and fruit. Listen to your body While it may be tempting to go all out on the first few days in the snow, Davis points out how important it is to listen to your body and work up little by little to avoid injury. “Your body does give you warning signs,” he said. “Be really honest with yourself.” His top advice for injury prevention? “Check your ego at the door,” he said. At the beginning of the alpine ski season, Thompson has his athletes start simple, he said. “We start out doing basic drills on basic hills,” he said. “There’s so much you haven’t used in such a long time, so we definitely start slow. Overall, the underlying practice that has worked for many skiers and snowboarders is to enjoy the sport and listen to their bodies. “Especially for people who aren’t that much of a hardcore skier, I would say don’t get wrapped up in needing to be in the gym every single day,” Restivo said. “Have fun with it, vary your workouts…take care of your body, listen to your body.”

Hopefully, there will again be pieces created by members who work in the RMWG dye garden at the Chatfield location of Denver Botanic Gardens, where some members grow traditional dye plants and learn to use them. Soft, muted colors prevail

here. (I scored some wonderful silk scarves last year that were created with dye plants grown there.) It’s a recommended visit in summer when/ where plants are growing and flowering as well. This garden was near the historic barn on the property last summer, to the right of the entrance. (Free parking, fee for entrance to the gardens, as with the York Street site in Denver, by City Park.) Walk in and absorb the riot of color and textures — and feel free to pat or stroke as you enjoy the variety. Knowledgeable guild members will be on hand to talk about technique, care and history of available fiber arts works. Included are baskets — traditional and contemporary — by basket weaver Karen Lugenbill and others who work with other natural fibers as well as yarns. She and other guild members will have created a new inventory for this once-a-year event. Admission is free. Perhaps craftspeople, new to fiber arts, will discover these creative folks and want to join them. New members are welcome.

Senior does her part for tradition Q&A with Dalton Who is your favorite athlete and why? Chiaka Ogbogu, She played at the University of Texas with my sister and is on the U.S. national team now. She played in the middle and I used to play in the middle and I can relate to her. What is your favorite class in school and why? I really like social media and business, I like the teacher a lot. That’s kind of what I want to do in marketing. What do you like to do away from sports and school? I have a job. I work at a pizza place. I’m a busser. Pizza is not my favorite anymore. What are your plans after high school? I have committed to Washington State and I am thinking communications for a major and minoring in marketing. PHOTO BY JIM BENTON

Julianna Dalton is member of family with strong history in sport BY JIM BENTON JBENTON@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM


ulianna Dalton, a 6-foot-4 senior at Chaparral, deals with the question all the time. She is continually asked if she plays basketball. Dalton is one of the state’s premier volleyball players and has never played competitive basketball. “No, all my brothers do but I do not play basketball,” said Dalton. “My sisters played volleyball and I grew up watching it. I grew up in a gym. Both of them (sisters) were pretty good in high school. “ It’s a Dalton family tradition to play

volleyball. Nichole Dalton, who played collegiately at Texas, was a standout on the 2010 and 2011 state championship Chaparral teams. Karlie Dalton, who played at Benedictine College, was on the 2010 team. Juliana’s younger sister, Katie, is a sophomore this season on the Chap team. And cousin Emma Ammerman is also on the Chaparral team this season. “They (sisters) won two championships here and they both went and played in college, so watching them was inspiring when I was young,” added Dalton, who helped Chaparral to a runnerup finish in last season’s state tournament. “I just want to make the team this year as best as it can be.”

COACH’S TAKE: ‘This is her fourth year on varsity and she has contributed the past three years. The more she has done training in club, the more she has improved here. She is a leader emotionally on the court as well as physically.’ Amanda West, Chaparral head girls volleyball coach

Which is tougher — to block or get a kill at the net? You get more kills than you do blocks, but blocking is probably the hardest skill. Blocking is easier because I am tall. What is your favorite movie? “The Notebook.” It’s my mom’s favorite movie. Whenever she watches it, I watch it. It’s a sad love story. What is your favorite song? “One Man Band” by Old Dominion. I like country. What is your favorite high school volleyball moment so far? It was the state semifinal match last year (3-2 win over Cherokee Trail). Being down 0-2 and we came back to win. Have a suggestion for whom to feature in Student-Athlete Spotlight? Email Jim Benton at

Key stats | After 14 matches this season, Dalton had 119 kills, 21 service aces, a team-high 36 blocks, 91 digs and 14 assists.

5A football teams get down to league business


t is now crunch time for Class 5A football teams who have completed non-league schedules and jumped into league play last weekend. The names of the leagues are confusing because of the realignment every two years, but it is clear that there will be some upcoming important league games. There is no way that I am going to get into predictions but rather offer some observations. Valor Christian, which has won five of the past seven state titles in 5A and eight overall state titles covering all classes, has to be considered the favorite in the 5A Metro South League. After the non-league schedule, the Eagles were averaging 389 yards of total offense sparked OVERTIME by league rushing leader Gavin Sawchuk, and had forced 11 takeaways with 12 quarterback sacks. Castle View, off to a 4-1 non-league Jim Benton start, opened the league season with a game against Valor on Oct. 4. Valor has a combined overall record of 19-0 against the other five teams in 5A Metro South League. Winless Highlands Ranch was one team looking forward to the league campaign after a tough non-league schedule with games against elite teams Eaglecrest, Grandview, Regis Jesuit, Columbine and Pomona. Legend and Regis were both undefeated with 5-0 records heading into 5A South play but there was one big difference. Regis is used to being a high-profile team, while Legend is enjoying its best start in school history and treading into new territory. The Raiders had the league’s passing leader in quarterback Nico Marchiol, who has helped raise the team’s total offense to 400.2 yards per game heading into the first week of the league schedule. Legend was averaging 386.8 yards per game with the league’s leading rusher in Blake Rarog. A showdown between Regis and Legend is set for Oct. 11 at Echo Park Automotive Stadium and could decide the league title. SEE BENTON, P22

The 5A Metro East League is loaded with good teams as the six schools combined for a 26-4 nonleague record. Cherry Creek, Grandview and Eaglecrest were all 5-0 when league play opened. This is an understatement, but there will be plenty of key games on the schedule in the next few weeks. Grandview opened the 5A Metro East league campaign with a 14-11 win over Eaglecrest on Oct. 3, and Creek ends the regular season with games against Eaglecrest, Cherokee Trail and Grandview. Columbine and Ralston Valley were unbeaten heading into the 5A Metro West league play, but this is also a tough league and is hard to select a favorite with Lakewood and Pomona the other top teams. Columbine, No. 1 in the Sept. 30 poll, and Ralston Valley, ranked fifth, are explosive teams. The Rebels, before last weekend’s game, were averaging 293.4 yards rushing, 384.6 yards total offense and scoring 43 points a game. Ralston Valley was passing for 238.2 yards each contest with 392.8 yards of total offense and scoring at a 43.2 clip. Both teams, however, should watch out for Pomona, which has won one 5A state championship and two runner-up state trophies, in the past five seasons.

Honor roll Each week, performances of South Metro athletes and teams will be highlighted. This week’s performances were selected from games, matches and meets between Sept. 27 and Oct. 3. Merich Stenberg had an interception with less than two minutes remaining to end a Castle View drive and preserve a 34-27 football win for Legend in a Sept. 27 game. Junior Connor Eise rushed for 138 yards and two touchdowns for the Titans. Chris Cornn scored twice and had two assists for six points and the Ponderosa senior helped the Mustangs notch a 5-1 soccer win over Douglas County on Oct. 1. Senior Brandon Belgrave averaged 13.2 yards a carry as he gained 119 yards and scored three TDs in Lutheran’s 40-7 football victory over Falcon on Sept. 27. Katie Dack-Howell went 3-for-4 and had four runs batted in while Audrey Burt pitched three hitless innings of relief to earn the save as the Rock Canyon softball team downed Castle View, 12-3, on Oct. 2. ThunderRidge senior Brent Huber passed for 152 yards and one TD and he ran for 147 yards and a score in the Grizzlies’ 24-7 win over Doherty on Sept. 26. Jim Benton is a sports writer for Colorado Community Media. He has been covering sports in the Denver area since 1968. He can be reached at jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia. com or at 303-566-4083.

GRIT An ACL tear hurts. No doubt — but the hardest part isn’t the physical pain. It’s the doubt. The psych-out. When Tobin tore his ACL playing lacrosse, he needed the elite recovery team at Children’s Colorado to custom-build him a personalized path back to the game. But a path doesn’t mean a thing without the will to walk it. That takes grit. Thanks for inspiring me, Tobin.
