Bringing history to life
Golden Cemetery revives city’s past residents

sica Lira said the event has always been a popular one, started more than 20 years ago. “We have around 100 people come through every year, and we do have tours sell out,” Lira said. The graveside tours begin with a tour guide giving the visitor a general history of the cemetery itself, before bringing the group to the graveside of a first-person interpreter in period costume. “In this case, our first interpreter is George ‘Pete’ Morrison (whose grandfather founded the town of Morrison), a silent film star,” Lira said. One of the “newer” ghosts in the graveyard, Pete Morrison, talked about the early film industry, his Colorado production company, as well as riding horses for rodeos and Universal Studios westerns. “Morrison will also give one tour participant a lesson on silent film acting,” Lira said. At the next tour stop was Louise ‘Caroline’ Millikin, as interpreted by one of her decedents. She shared stories about moving West, her husband who helped build the county’s first courthouse and about how six of her children died young. “Very sad to hear about, but not that uncommon for the time,” Lira said. Michael Parfet was another interpreter on this year’s tour, talking about his family’s long history with Golden. Jack Stone and Lynne Lawlor of Englewood, both longtime Golden History Museums first-person interpreters, played the roles of Joel and Matilda Palmer. The couple

The trip was an arduous one, leading Matilda Palmer to describe the trip as frustratingly slow, filled with monotony, “and the wind and the dust, and the dust.” The couple started a farm, near where the Coors Brewery stands now, ironic because the two were strict teetotalers. “The cemetery tours are so much fun,” said Stone, who helped write the interpretive scripts for the Palmers, and a few of the other ghosts. “It’s great fun to bring little known characters from Golden’s history to life.” This year’s tour was focused on a specific corner of the cemetery, which includes the veterans’ section. Tour guides shared pieces of Civil War history, while pointing out the graves of past Golden residents who served in that conflict. Lira said she always tries to change most of the tour from year to year, so next year it might incorporate the stories of veterans of more recent wars who are buried there. Lira said the event was easily one of the favorite events of the year for both Golden History Museums’ staff and volunteers because of the impact it can have on those that take the tour. “You get people thinking about history itself and the stories, and how these people are more than just words on the page,” she said.
Choosing a commissioner Jeffco candidates meet for last forum By Glenn Wallace
gwallace@ourcolorado news.com It was the last face-toface match between the two candidates for the 2nd district seat of the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners, establishing their policy differences on audits, the beltway and the budget. Appointed incumbent John Odom and challenger Casey Tighe spoke before the Arvada Chamber of Commerce’s Friday morning candidate forum. Incumbent Republican Faye Griffin from District 1, who is running unopposed this election, also attended the forum and gave a short speech. Democratic Tighe spoke first. The retired CDOT audit director laid out his resume, which includes a bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado, and a law degree from Creighton University in Nebraska. From 2007 to 2011 Tighe served as the chair of the Jeffco Audit Committee. “Unfortunately, last year the audit committee was dissolved by the current board of county supervisors. I think that was a mistake, and I want to bring the committee back,” Tighe said. Odom, a Republican, touted the current BCC for “keeping our fiscal house in order,” pointing to the county’s strong credit rating, and clean audit reports. He was appointed to the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) in 2011 when Commissioner Kevin McCaskey stepped down. The small business owner has a bachelor’s degree in Chinese from Metro State, and an MBA from Thunderbird School of Global Management. “It’s been an interesting almost two years, and I
look forward to continuing in that role,” Odom said. The biggest policy difference between the candidates was revealed by the forum’s first question, asking if they supported the Jefferson Parkway project. “I am unabashedly in favor of finishing not just the Jeffco parkway, but the entire beltway,” Odom said, adding that though part of the project is tied up on a lawsuit, he expected progress to be made on the issue before the end of the year. Tighe said he agreed with the need for the beltway, but was critical of how the current BCC had handled it, particularly in supporting a piece of legislation, the Beltway Economic Enhancement Project. “The problem with that law was it was taking away local decision-making, creating another level of bureaucracy in an effort to complete the beltway,” Tighe said. He said the county should work to bring opposition communities like Golden and Superior back to the negotiation table. Both candidates were asked if they would support modifying or abolishing Jeffco’s Business Personal Property Tax. Tighe said he would like to, perhaps by using audit practices to find additional savings in county operations that could be used to offset the lost revenue. Odom said he would favor lowering the tax, and would be happy to use a new state law that would allow the BCC to offer business tax waivers to help attract and keep businesses in the county.

A modest proposal: The Jessica initiative My wife and I have had several very dark conversations over the past few days. Mostly, they go something like this: “Well, what do they do when you can’t get to school right at the last bell?” “They go and play on the playground with some friends for about 10 minutes until I get there.” “Are there teachers out there?” “No — it’s after school, and they’ve got other duties.” “Well, who watches them?” “Nobody — they’re on a playground for a few minutes.” At which point we spend the next hour trying to figure out how to rearrange our schedules so that our young children don’t ever have a minute out in public where they are not covered by a responsible pair of eyes. I hate this. I hate this feeling, I hate this fear, I hate the constant state of heightened vigilance. And I especially hate that all of this comes at the expense of our children having the opportunity to experience the world without a protection umbrella around them. But that’s what the abduction and murder of Jessica Ridgeway has done to us. Jessica Ridgeway left in the morning for a short walk — a few blocks — that she had negotiated on her own hundreds of times. Somewhere in that short trip she was taken. One adult on the street, one parent seeing their own child to the end of the block, one retiree tending their rose bushes, one young couple jogging around the block could have made all the world of difference. And it’s not that anyone is to blame, except for one evil, twisted man. But we
can do better. I want kids to feel safe walking to school through my neighborhood. I want my kids to feel safe playing on our block with the other kids; I want my kids to know that if something bad starts, they can run to the nearest house and get the help they need; I want all the kids on the block to know that if something bad starts, they can run to my door and get the help they need. And it all starts with a stronger community. Evil of the sort that struck out at Jessica Ridgeway thrives in a vacuum, and all of us spending all our energies on work and carpool and our cyber-communities have left a huge hole where our neighborhoods should be. I’m guilty of it, too — to be honest, I probably spend more time on Facebook every day than I do in my own front yard. Well, that needs to end. I am proposing today a new idea, borrowing from local churches: The Jessica Initiative. It’s really a fairly simple thing. First, meet everybody on your block and within a stone’s throw of your house. Have a block party or a barbecue. Initiate some event to get to know everybody. Make sure to introduce the kids. In fact, we have this wonderful holiday coming up that’s great fun for the kids, and a real opportunity — how about a Halloween party or community potluck?
Something. Build the ties that bind a neighborhood together so we all have a stock in the safety of each other. Step Two: Learn when the local schools let out or have bus drop-off on your block, and then make a concerted effort to be out in front of your house for 15 minutes. Walk the dog, water the flowers. That’s all. Don’t you think our kids would be better off walking a path that is lined with friends and protectors? And it’s just 15 minutes out of your day. Step Three: establish who has necessary skills on the block. Who’s a nurse or doctor or E.M.T.? Is there a law enforcement or military
presence in the neighborhood? If the kids need help, where should they run to first for what kind of help? And give everybody on the block the purple ribbons that some schools have started distributing. Let the world know that you’re watching. That’s it. No federal program, no mountain of paperwork. Just neighbors rediscovering the art of neighboring. For our kids’ sake. Michael Alcorn is a music teacher and fitness instructor who lives in Arvada with his wife and three children. He graduated from Alameda High School and the University of Colorado-Boulder.

Debate targets barbs Abduction attempt, of campaign season Ridgeway murder linked By Ashley Reimers
Candidates for 7th Congressional District with no easy answers
By Glenn Wallace
firstname.lastname@example.org U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter and Joe Coors, his opponent for Colorado’s 7th congressional district, met for their latest debate last week where both tackled some of their opponent’s allegations. The Oct. 17 debate was moderated by Denver Post political reporter Lynn Bartels and 9NEWS political reporter Brandon Rittiman, and was broadcast on 9NEWS, and posted on the Post website. Question one asked Coors about his investing of $40 million of family trust funds in 2002 into a bogus bond trading program that offered a 75 percent return a week. “How do you reconcile that with touting your business skills on the campaign trail?” Bartels asked. Coors replied that his family had a strong business record in Colorado stretching back to the 1860s. He brought up Perlmutter’s support of the stimulus bill that helped fund the failed government loan to solar company Solyndra. He said it was his assistance with the FBI that helped stop the con artists, “and got those folks behind bars.” According documents filed in U.S. District Court, the firm Merrill Lynch caught the fraud and froze the account. Coors later filed a lawsuit against the firm, alleging that it should have caught on to the fraud sooner. Question two was directed at Perlmutter, asking about a promise he made when running for Congress in 2006: That his then-wife would not lobby him or any member of the House of Representatives while he was in office. Perlmutter’s ex-wife, Deana Perlmutter, was the head of the Denver office for lobbying firm Dutko Worldwide at the time of his election in 2006. Records show that she began lobbying other members of the House of Representatives in the first half of 2007. “My wife never lobbied me, and she still hasn’t lobbied me, more than four years after we’ve been divorced,” Perl-
mutter said. The two finalized their divorce in 2008. Perlmutter has since remarried. Rittiman asked Coors about CoorsTek’s opening of a South Korean factory during his time as that country’s CEO, asking if American countries should be encouraged to keep jobs in America, even if that increases cost. “No American jobs were lost, ever,” Coors said, insisting that the factory opening was more about opening Asian markets, than in lowering costs. Perlmutter rebutted, saying CoorsTek’s own shareholder reports seem to indicate the move was motivated by lower wage costs. Question four was aimed back at Perlmutter, asking why his previous measure of support from otherwise-Republican voters seems to have eroded lately. “Well, Joe and I live in the same neighborhood, we have the same number of friends, many of them Republican, and they may be picking Joe over me,” Perlmutter said. The fifth question of the debate asked both candidates about their stances on health-care reform. Perlmutter supported President Barack Obama’s reforms. Coors said he’d work to would repeal it, saying it will increase taxes on the middle class. Perlmutter used the question to attack his opponent about his former support of a state anti-abortion ballot measure. “I’m a pro-life person, but let’s get back to the more significant issues facing this country, like 23 million people out of work or underemployed,” Coors said, calling personhood a dead issue that he would not revive. When questioned further by the moderators about whether he would sponsor, or sign legislation in congress that would restrict women’s reproductive rights, Coors said he would not.
As the Jessica Ridgeway investigation continues, Westminster police announced Monday they have found a direct link between an attempted abduction and the murder of the 10-yearold Westminster girl. Police did not say whether it was the same person in both unsolved cases. Investigator Trevor Materasso said police are not releasing information at this time specifically as to how the cases are linked. A woman was running around Ketner Lake in Westminster on May 28 when a man grabbed her from behind and tried to put a rag over her mouth. The victim was able to break free and call 911. Police and a K9 unit were unable to locate a suspect. Ridgeway was last seen by her mother around 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 5 walking down the driveway of her home on West 107th Avenue and Moore Street. Her body was found days later in the Pattridge Park Open Space area in Arvada. “Westminster police and assisting law enforcement agencies have been unable to associate any vehicle in either of these incidents,” Materasso said. “Several metro area law enforcement jurisdictions are working other cases of attempted abductions and various vehicle or suspect descriptions have been provided. In regards to Westminster’s cases, we only have the description of the man who attempted the abduction in May.” The suspect from the attempted abduction at Ketner Lake is described as a light-skinned male, age 18-30, brown hair, medium build with a height around 5-feet-7-inches tall. Materasso said police are working with FBI Behavior Analysis Unit to remind people to report any changes in behaviors they have seen from people they know in the community. “We are specifically looking for these behavior changes on Oct. 5, 2012, and days after Jessica’s disappearance and the Memorial Day weekend,” Materasso said. On Oct. 19 police also found a wooden cross during the investigation, and officials consider this discovery as a pivotal piece of evidence that could

help them identify and locate Ridgeway’s killer. Police are asking people to look at the photo of the cross to see if anyone has any information on the cross. The wooden cross is about 1-and-ahalf inches tall by 1-inch wide. The cross has a hole drilled through the upper part and appears that it can be or was worn on a necklace. On one side of the cross are three vertical bars etched onto the shorter horizontal section and a zigzag pattern is carved onto the opposite side. The cross appears to be a solid piece of wood and the upper post portion is offset from the lower post below the short horizontal section. “We are looking for someone who may carry or wear this type of cross and may have recently purchased one of these or is known to have any association with one,” Materasso said. “Police believe there may be a connection between the Jessica Ridgeway murder and the attempted abduction at Ketner Lake, and urge the public to specifically look for someone with a cross like this that matches the suspect’s description from Ketner Lake.” Tips can be given to the Westminster Police Department tip center by calling 303-658-4336 or by sending an email to PDamberalert@cityofwestminster.us.

Student debt, tuition highlighted at Arvada forum CU Regents talk to voters By Glenn Wallace
email@example.com Voters had an opportunity to learn a bit more about four candidates for the CU Regents Board at a candidate forum held by the Arvada Chamber of Commerce last week. The CU Regents form a nine-member board that oversee the fiscal operations of the entire University of Colorado program, and evaluate the university president. Regent candidates for Congressional District 7 (Mary Dambman and Irene Griego), and a statewide at-large seat (Stephen Ludwig and Brian Davidson) spoke before the Arvada Chamber Friday morning, answering questions about controlling the rising cost of tuition and the problems posed by student debt. Up first were the 7th
district candidates, including Griego, who was appointed by Colorado Gov. Mike Hickenlooper a year ago. She holds a master’s degree in education from the University of Northern Colorado, and a doctorate in school administration from CU Denver. “I believe I have not only the ability but also the insight to understand what CU needs,” Griego said. Dambman talked about her personal history, starting with her early years and first college experience in Colorado Springs, earning a master’s degree from Colorado College, and serving a term in the state House of Representatives for District 20 in the 80s. “I’m always concerned about the bottom line,” Dambman said, emphasizing affordable tuition as her highest priority.

The two women split on the question of whether to reduce tuition for the children of illegal immigrants —Griego for and Dambman against. “We should reduce or hold the line on tuition for everyone,” Dambman said. Griego also said keeping higher education affordable and accessible to Colorado students were important to her, “so they can have the career, the life that they want.” To make that happen, Griego said she would support programs like the Pell Grant and merit grants to outstanding high schoolers. “Students should not have loan debt,” Dambman said, calling for a freeze on current tuition levels. In the statewide race for one of the regent board’s two at-large positions, this year’s contest between Ludwig and Davidson is actually a rematch of six years ago, when Ludwig eked out a win. “My own dream of becoming a physician became true because of the availability of high quality

education in Colorado,” Davidson said, referring to his undergraduate degree from UNC, and his three degrees from CU. He added that his time in CU programs as both a student and a teacher, as well as his current employment at the CU Anschutz Medical Center offered him a unique perspective. Ludwig, who said he worked to put himself through college at CU Colorado Springs, emphasized the importance of the office, and of higher education, for both the state and the country. On the question of whether to offer reduced tuition to the children of illegal immigration, Ludwig said it made dubious legal sense to punish someone for the transgressions of their parents. “I think denying them some form of reduced tuition is immoral,” Ludwig said. Davidson said he opposes such a tuition reduction as being “not useful or fair” because legal immigrants and out-ofstate students would still be charged three or four times as much. He said barriers to employment would still leave many of those non-citizen students from making good use of their education. “We’re not solving a problem, so much as making a statement,” Davidson said.
The two at-large candidates acknowledged they shared several of the same ideas about how to deal with the issues of rising tuition and student debt at the same time state funding has continued to drop. Davidson said student debt was a subject he and his wife were very familiar with. “We have a combined debt in our household of $260,000,” Davidson said. He said for years tuition costs had gone up and government loan assistance had gone up as well, creating an escalating situation. “At the rates tuition fees are rising, there is no way for even the most diligent family to save or invest enough today to pay education costs tomorrow. Where the buck stops is at the regents table,” Davidson said. Ludwig said improving the structure and cooperation of all colleges and universities across the state could help lower costs and increase education affordability. More use of community colleges and high school AP courses for college credit could also help reduce the average student’s total costs. “I created a guaranteed admission program for community college students to transfer to CU,” Ludwig said.

GOLDEN NEWS IN A HURRY Pro Challenge impact
A study done by the organizers of the 2012 USA Pro Challenge, weeklong professional cycling race, was released last week with details about how the sporting event may have affected the communities it came through. The Aug. 20-26 race had an attendance of more than 1 million, with a grand total of economic impact for the state at $99.6 million, according to the study done by IFM North America. According to the report, direct spending by traveling spectators brought a significant portion of the economic impact. Both those fans from outside the state and Coloradans traveling 50 miles or more to take in an event stage contributed $81.5 million on lodging, food, transportation and entertainment. The remaining economic impact comes in the form of team, staff, sponsor and vendor spending, employment created by the event, and the resulting tax effects of the race. The Golden City Council approved plans to apply to become a part of the 2013 race, earlier this month.

Students find way into workforce
By Cassie Monroe
Ten Jeffco public school students sat in the front two rows in the large conference room. Nearly 100 people settled into their seats waiting for Jim Panzer, district transition coordinator, to introduce the students and their mentors, who hold various jobs in Colorado government departments. The students are part of a high school transition program through Project Search, a national organization that places disabled students in workplace settings to allow them to explore various ca-
reers and put their training skills to work. Project Search was first implemented in Jefferson County in April 2012 and students started their internships on Aug. 20. “The eight weeks since then have been a blur,” Panzer said. Duriye Powell, from the Department of Reclamation, organized the event celebrating the first class of interns for completing their first of three job rotations. To celebrate they held a grand opening ceremony for Project Search in Jefferson County at the Denver Federal Center in Lakewood on Oct. 17. “The beauty of Project Search is the collaboration between the groups,” Pan-
zer said. After Panzer introduced the program and explained how it would benefit students in Jefferson County, it was time for the student interns to speak. The students introduced their mentors to the audience. Many tears were shed as mentors expressed their joy from having the students in their offices, which included the Bureau of Land Management, Department of Fish and Wildlife, Office of Natural Resources Revenue, Nation Parks Service, National Business Center and Bureau of Reclamation. Mentors said the interns had helped archive files, copy documents, convert
paper documents to PDF and answer phones. The mentors who spoke about their experience in the program, expressed their sadness at seeing the students go. Some even shed a few tears when speaking about how the program had been a learning experience for them as well as for the students. Panzer said all of the feedback he received about the students had been positive, and showed how successful the program could be. “You all have gone a long way in a short time,” Panzer said to the students. “I really look forward to hearing about all of your successes in the future.”

NEWS IN A HURRY Clear Creek trail grant continues
Jefferson County commissioners gave r final approval to a grant d agreement between the county, Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) and Clear Creek County. That grant agreement is to provide Jefferson and Clear Creek counties - $4.6 million for the Clear Creek Canyon segment of the Peaks to Plains Trail under the River Corridors Initiative. Jeffco’s portion of the award is $1,802,288 with a match in partnership pledges from Jeffco Open Space Foundation; the cities of Golden, Wheat Ridge, Lakewood and Arvada; Apex and Prospect Recreation Districts; and the nonprofit Team Evergreen and Jeffco’s Open Space sales tax revenues. Construction is scheduled to start next year. During the threeyear construction period, an estimate of $4,542,832 from the Open Space Fund and partnership contributions will cover costs associated with the design and construction of a regional trail from the Jefferson County line in Clear Creek Canyon to the Mayhem Gulch Trailhead
CDOT prepares for winter
Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) maintenance crews in the Denver metro area report they “have dusted off their winter boots, gloves and snow plows in anticipation for the first significant snowfall,” according to the department’s latest press release. CDOT reports 248 roadway maintenance workers will be on-call, even over weekends and holidays, to work 12hour shifts, to keep roads clear of snow and ice. CDOT’s maintenance crews will have about $6.6 million in state funding to plow, sand and de-ice 3,850 lane miles of Interstates, freeways and state highways.
WHO To Contact At The
CDOT strongly encourages motorists to plan ahead by visiting www.cotrip.org or by calling 511 anywhere in Colorado. Current road and weather conditions are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week via the website and phone. You can also sign up for free e-mail and text message alerts by visiting www.coloradodot.info and clicking on the cell phone icon in the upper right corner under the search function. Standard text-message rates apply. Below are a few winter driving tips from CDOT: • Be sure to carry plenty of windshield wiper fluid as liquid deicers may stick to your windshield. • Let the snowplow drivers do their jobs by giving them extra room, and don’t pass on the right. • Slow down. Even roads that have been treated with liquid deicers may be slippery. • Be prepared. Have a scraper, snow brush, coat, hat, gloves, blanket, first aid kit, flashlight, tire chains, matches, water and nonperishable food in your car. • Make sure your tires have good tread. • Don’t use cruise control when driving in inclement weather

OPINIONS / YOURS AND OURS
Support 3A, 3B for Jeffco schools Jeffco Public Schools planned for the economic downturn experienced the past few years. We watched as the district spent down the rainy day funds. We watched as it worked to preserve the experience in the classroom. Tough decisions were made — teachers were laid off, class sizes experienced some increases and a few school days were cut from the calendar in the balance among other impacts. Without passage of Ballot Question 3A, the district expects to lay off about 600 more employees, mostly teachers and other staff members, such as librarians. The district reports a typical elementary school will lose two teachers and increase class size from about 27 to 31 students. The average middle school will also lose about two teachers. Most high schools will lose 7-8 teachers depending on the size of the high school. Voters approved a $38.5 million mill levy increase and a $324 million bond issue in 2004, but said no to another request in 2008 for a $32 million mill levy increase and a $350 million bond. The continued belt tightening has been a good exercise to make the most out of taxpayers’ funds, but at this time we believe it makes sense to give the district a boost, especially in light of the state dollars per student dropping from $7,070 in 2009-10 to $6,309 in 2012-13, $761 per student. The mill levy increase known as Ballot Question 3A will bring in $39 million to the district each year. The funds are earmarked for the district’s day-today operations, education programs, maintenance, salaries and supplies, and will bring back two days of school. The cost of the ballot questions to homeowners is about $14.76 per year per $100,000 of assessed home value by the county. The $99 million bond package, known as 3B, will support projects, such as buildings, repairs and renovations. We have observed the district as it prioritized and re-prioritized projects the past few years. Decisions about closing under utilized schools — which is always emotional for the affected neighborhoods — and repairing and renovation where the most good can be achieved has been impressive and forthright. So we also support 3B to maintain Jeffco Schools infrastructure, keeping it sound, functional and comfortable for students. We don’t like raising taxes, especially in this continuing uncertain climate, but we urge voters to approve these two measures — 3A and 3B — for the good of the community toward education of our students. We trust an infusion of funds will not only shape up the classroom experience in terms of teachers, class sizes and supporting structure, but we want to see it bring back the innovative tone and pride of excellence that has diminished somewhat as budgets were tightened the past few years. With a downturn in state funding, the challenge to make every dollar go far remains urgent, lets reward the district for its work the past few years, keep more teachers in the classroom and pass ballot questions 3A and 3B.

Without us, it is just an idea Oct. 11 this year was the first “International Day of the Girl.” Two days before that, 14-year-old Malala Yousufzai was shot in the head in an assassination attempt by the Taliban. And four days before that, 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway was abducted from her Westminster neighborhood, to be found murdered a week later. Malala — who has inspired people around the world with her public stand against the Taliban’s ban on education for girls — is recovering in a hospital in Britain.

tion in its support of her family — did not survive. What happened to Malala and Jessica is in stark contrast to the ideals of the International Day of the Girl, adopted by the United Nations to recognize girls’ rights and to create awareness of the unique challenges girls face around the world. Other organizations, in celebrating the International Day of the Girl, have said that, “When girls have the opportunity to be educated … society as a whole benefits.” And both Malala and Jessica loved school. One, Jessica, was on her way to school when she disappeared. The other, Malala, was on her way home from school when she was shot by assassins sent from the Pakistani Taliban. Unfortunately, it is our horror and disbelief that connect the 10-year-old from a quiet and nurturing Denver suburb with the 14-year-old from a village in northwestern Pakistan. Both beloved by their families, both innocents, both children. Both targeted, in part, for their gender. I believe that few of us would disagree that what happened to these girls is a travesty — a travesty against their youth, a travesty against their justice, a travesty against their right
to exist. And I believe that these two violent acts are violence against us, as well. When the world’s children are attacked, all of us are attacked — attacked to the very foundations of society. Because anywhere girls are supported in reaching their potentials can be a society of secure futures for families and for communities, for nations and, by reasonable extension, the world. For example, as we recognize “Women 2 Watch” in our own communities this week, it’s important to note that they credit mentors — at home, at school, in the workplace — with helping them achieve their goals. These women, then, have become mentors themselves, supporting and encouraging school kids, teens, and young adults, as well as other women. Others are also taking action, and backing the goals of the International Day of the Girl is a good start. In Colorado, a program called “The Blossom Project” gathered proclamations from around the state to honor girls and hosted events to celebrate Oct. 11. The Blossom Project uses education to inspire high school girls to create visionary change, believ-
ing that young women play a critical role in the development of global civil society. However, according to the National Women’s Law Center, 1 in 4 girls in America does not finish high school, and the Population Resource Bureau says that only 30 percent of girls worldwide are ever even enrolled in secondary school. UNESCO — the United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization — reports also that, by 2015, females will make up 64 percent of the world’s adult population who cannot read. The ideals of the International Day of the Girl to help galvanize worldwide enthusiasm to improve the lives of girls are just that — ideals — without the attention and action of people like you and me. Email me for ways to do this. Malala Yousufzai, when she recovers, may get the chance to continue her education, to reach her potential, to play her role in the development of global civil society. Jessica Ridgeway will not. Doesn’t Jessica deserve our action, in her honor, to make sure that other young girls do?

YOUR VIEWS Yes on 3A, 3B
The Golden Good Government League believes an excellent and vibrant public education system providing all citizens with an opportunity for an education is a foundation of a strong democracy; therefore, we strongly support Jefferson County School District Ballot Issues 3A and 3B in the Fall election. Issue 3A will generate $39 million for operational costs such as recruitment and retention of excellent teachers, restore two school days to the calendar, maintain classroom size and ensure that approximately 86,000 students have access to music, athletics, librarians, academic electives and outdoor lab. Jeffco employs 133 administrators and 14,000 full-time, part time and temporary employees. Employees in 201112 and 2012-13 have continued to take a 3 percent reduction in compensation. Issue 3B will provide $99 million for much needed repairs and maintenance on buildings and facilities. These repairs are critical to ensure that students are safe, warm and dry. The district owns and maintains over 12.1 million of square feet of space in 387 permanent buildings and 350 portable buildings at 171 sites. Among many traditions of excellence, Jeffco students outperform the state on all subjects at all levels according to CSAP/ TCAP results, the district has the second highest graduation rate of the 50 largest school districts in the country and this year’s graduates received $54 million in college scholarships. We firmly believe that good schools attract new business to the community, help build and keep great neighborhoods and keep property values high. For an investment of $1.23 per month per $100,000 of home value or (for the average Jeffco homeowner $3.06 per month), you can expect a profound return. Mary Ceynowa Golden Good Government League
No on 3A, 3B
The Jeffco school district is being very deceitful as usual in expressing the cost of its latest tax hike request, 3A and 3B. They deceptively state the tax hike in dollars ($1.23) per month per $100,000 in home value. The eye catching $1.23 seems minuscule upon casual glance. In actuality it is significant when computed. The 2009 average detached home value in Jefferson County was $367,029. The 2009 average townhome value was $279,835. These figures come from City-Data.com/ Jefferson County Colorado. When computed, the average detached homeowner will see their annual property tax bill increase $54.17. The average townhome owner will see their annual property tax bill increase $41.30. Appreciable indeed when the average household income has eroded $4,500 in the last four years, not to mention the increase in food, gasoline and diesel, clothing and building material costs. The well-paid district hierarchy in their secure jobs have no concern for the many homeowners who are out of work, working two jobs or part time jobs just to maintain their household. Not only will the tax hike affect homeowners, it will affect apartment dwellers and house renters as well. Owners of rental property will pass through the tax increase. 3A and 3B will be a tax increase on everybody at a time when everyone is feeling the
distress of a bad economy. Jeffco district officials put forth a tax increase request every election cycle. It is time the citizens of Jefferson County stop this aggressive, abusive tax increase nonsense. Vote on 3A and 3B. Charles Palmer Golden
No on 3A, 3B
I am writing this as a parent and concerned citizen, not as a Jeffco school board member. Many of you have asked why I am voting no on 3A and 3B. Here are the top three reasons I am voting no: We are experiencing a temporary economic downturn and don’t need a permanent tax increase to fix the short term funding dip. As housing values increase the amount of money the school district receives will increase. And as the state economy gets better there will be more money for education. In fact the September state economic forecast says $700 million additional dollars will be put in the K-12 fund over the next two years. Jeffco receives approximately 9 percent of the K-12 fund or about $60 million of those additional dollars, which more than covers the proposed cuts. As the economy gets better education gets more money. Next is the PERA (Public Employees Retirement Association) conversation. The PERA contribution is estimated to rise over $22 million dollars in the next couple of years. While employee contributions remain at 8 percent, taxpayer contributions will increase from 15.65 percent to 20.15 percent. The current general fund budget has taxpayers picking up all of those PERA increases but not allocating money to instrumental music, teacher librarians, or outdoor lab schools. Those priorities don’t seem to me to put students first. 3B will increase the debt load by $99,000,000 — it is permission to go into debt for on-going maintenance. We shouldn’t be going into debt to pay for routine maintenance items. This money is not for science labs or new buildings. Paying for routine maintenance items with twenty years of debt is not a good plan. The system needs fundamental structural change. This does not fund a new pay structure. Not one penny will go to raise the amount we pay our newest teachers. Not one penny builds new science labs or adds options for our students. Jeffco public schools have asked for just a little bit more every four to six years. What Jeffco needs is a bold new plan — not the status quo. Our children deserve better; I will be voting no on 3A and 3B — and working for a bold new plan that puts our students first. Laura Boggs Lakewood
who have the legal and appropriate authorization to grow and use marijuana for medicinal purposes. Moreover, even if the voters approve Amendment 64, which I sincerely hope they do not, marijuana growing and possession would still be a federal offense. In addition to still being a federal offense, legalization of pot would result in more traffic accidents and fatalities, as well as an increase in crime. Talk to most police officers and they will confirm this observation. Take it to the bank. We do not need more stoned drivers on the road, and we do not need more crime. And we certainly do not need a law that would be in direct conflict with the federal law. What’s next- — home-brew methamphetamine, cocaine, LSD, PCP or heroin? Where do we draw the line? In my opinion, we need to draw the line right now and vote no on Amendment 64. As Archie Bunker used to say, “This is pure crapola.” Dan Montgomery Westminster Chief of Police (Retired)
Tyler for District 23
With a lifetime score of 100 percent on the Conservation Scorecard, it’s difficult to not take a second look at Representative Max Tyler. Max works hard to support a sustainable and renewable energy economy, access to better education, and the creation of jobs in Colorado. Believing that a green economy is a healthy and productive economy, Max Tyler protects the environment for our health, our economy, and our recreation. It is critical that Colorado become a leader in energy efficiency and Max Tyler is willing to make that a key priority. Colorado Conservation Voters endorses Max Tyler for District 23 state representative. Faith Winter Colorado Conservation Voters

Vote no on Amendment 64
I am a pretty conservative guy, probably due in part to the fact that I was a police officer for 47 years, with the last 25 years being spent as the chief of police for the Westminster Police Department. I’ve been around, and I certainly paid my dues as a young cop working narcotics and vice, and as an older cop, sitting on the governing boards of the North Metro Drug Task Force and the West Metro Drug Task Force. I vigorously enforced marijuana laws for all 47 years of my public service, and I would do it today if I was still actively employed as a cop. Constitutional Amendment 64 proposes the legalization of growing and possessing marijuana, but it would not impact those

urning out is a real possibility when performers have to bring their A-game to a show night after night, and in a different city each week for months at a time. But when you love what you do, you find ways to cope, said aerialist Mei Bouchard. “You live with the people you work with and you work with the people you live with, so you have to maintain your connection with friends and family at home,” said Bouchard, who is from Orlando. She added it was also important to stay healthy while on the road. Bouchard and the rest of the 52-person ensemble of Cirque du Soleil’s “Quidam” performs at 1stBANK Center, 11450 Broomfield Lane in Broomfield Nov. 7-11. “You aren’t just entertained, you’re going to be taken into the piece,” said Fabrice Lemire, artistic director. “The story is why the piece is doing so well 16 years later. It’s a subject everybody can recognize.” The story centers on Zoe, a little girl

whose parents are apathetic and ignore her. In order to escape her boring existence, Zoe slides into an imaginary world. “But at the end she comes back home, because there’s nothing like home,” Lemire said. The story weaves its way through juggling, trapeze, Spanish web, German wheel and rope-skipping acts. What differentiates “Quidam” from other Cirque shows, Lemire said, is that “it’s extremely poetic. You have the wow factor (the acrobats, aerialists) but in the middle you have the support of the storyline.” Bouchard added: “It’s something you don’t see every day. You get brought into another world.” Bouchard has been with the show for

a year, and her acts include the Spanish web, rope skipping and the Rabbit. The cast features acrobats, musicians, singers and characters from around the world. “It’s a full-course meal,” Lemire said. He said the show was his “baby,” and he couldn’t chose a favorite but the aerial acts had a “wow” factor for him. “Every single aerial act for me I feel is magical and intense,” he said. One of the aerial acts is done in large hoops, another is performed with a silk rope. Another act that Lemire said was quite stunning is the banquine, which is a performance with 15 artists doing acrobats and human pyramids. He said that it takes more than just the large cast on stage to make “Quidam” come alive. “We see the performers in the front, but there’s a support staff — technical staff, coaches — who really do as much as the performers,” he said. “Quidam” has toured in five continents since its premiere in 1996. After its show in Broomfield, the cast will travel to the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland Nov. 14-18. The show will make another Colorado appearance Jan. 9-13 at the World Arena in Colorado Springs. Tickets are available by calling 719520-7469 or 1-866-464-2626 or visiting www.cirquedusoleil.com/quidam.
I’m honored to be honored. Sense of Security, a Colorado-based breast cancer charity that helps patients with non-medical expenses, has been a favorite charity of mine since I was diagnosed seven years ago. In my own small way — with a ton of help from my friends — I have raised money for this unsung charity that lost some of its funding last year — a casualty of budget cuts. On Saturday night, being given an award for my efforts during the annual Champagne and Diamonds fundraiser humbled me. The award reads: “With gratitude, Penny Parker. Thank you for your continued support and commitment to improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients.” Yes, I’m a survivor, but there are so many of us in this sorority that we never wanted to join. As I write this, tears are running down my face. It seems that October — Breast Cancer Awareness Month — is the one time a year that my journey comes flooding back. I was truly blessed to have such supportive people in my corner during that time — my darling husband, Greg Henry, and my BFF, Devany McNeill, who also accompanied me to the event. I want to thank Rita McCoy, executive director of Sense of Security, Vicki Tosher, founder of the charity, and Regional Emmy Award winning doll face Chris Parente, co-host of FOX-31’s “Everyday,” who emceed. I also want to give a shout-out to the Embassy Suites in downtown Denver, which blew me away with their banquet service of perfectly cooked beef tenderloin (like buttah), crisp asparagus and a potato dish. Amazing. Thanks to all who deemed me worth of such an honor. If you’d like to contribute to such a deserving organization, go to www.senseofsecurity.org. Since its inception in 2000, Sense of Security has provided more than $1.4 million in financial assistance to more than 860 breast cancer patients in Colorado.
Think pink for charity
The 9th Door, the sexy tapas bar on Blake Street in LoDo, is donating proceeds from its Pink Coyote cocktail to Sense of Security during October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This could be the most fun you’ll ever have while donating to a worthy cause. See you there! For more information, go to www.senseofsecurity.org.

WOW them with Halloween-inspired treats Part of the fun of Halloween is arriving home after a day of trick-or-treating and having some spooktacular treats to enjoy. Whether you’re hosting a Halloween party or simply feeding a group of hungry, costumed kids, fun recipes that turn ordinary foods into spooky specialties are essential.
Vampire Apples Cut a piece out of an apple, fill with peanut butter and use slivered almonds for teeth. Totally cute and a s tasty, healthy snack all kids will eat!
Mummy Wraps Take the “pigs in a blanket” concept to a new level with this clever treat. Simply wrap hot dogs with strips of dough cut from refrigerator biscuits or breadsticks to simulate the look of mummy shrouds. Place them on cookie sheets. Cut small slits for eyes and place peppercorns or black mustard seeds to serve as the eyes. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown. To serve upright, place shish kabob skewers in the mummies before baking and then stick the mummies in a piece of craft foam covered in cheesecloth. Cheesy Fingers What’s scarier than dismembered digits on a plate? All it takes is a package of mozzarella string cheese, a knife and some small, thin slices of green and red bell peppers for this gross delicacy. Cut the cheese sticks in half and then use a knife to carve straight indentations to simulate the bends in the skin around the knuckles of the fingers. At the top, carve out a flattened area for the fingernail. Then place very small slices of red or green peppers to serve as the spooky fingernails. Adhere with a dab of cream cheese. Bottomless Bog This eerie bog will make children question what is inside. Make a large bowl of green gelatin dessert and pop in different edible creepy crawlies before allowing the gelatin to set. Gummy worms, grape “eyeballs,” sour fish, pieces of fruit tape, and anything else you can think of can be added. Kids will scoop out the dessert and discover the frightening things inside. Skull Potatoes Turn ordinary potatoes into something seemingly more sinister.
Halve baking potatoes and carve each half into a skull shape, sort of like the outline of a pear. Bake until the potatoes are cooked through. Frost with sour cream. Use pieces of cheese to mimic decaying teeth. Black olives can be eyes and nose sockets of the skull. Vampire Veggies What if veggies could suck blood? Conduct this science experiment and enjoy eating the research afterward. Cut the ends off of stalks
of celery. Place the celery in a tall glass filled half-way with tomato juice overnight. The celery should absorb the juice through the thin channels in the stalks. The next day kids can bite into the stalks and see the red streaks inside.
Spiderweb Garnish Top cupcakes, cookies and cakes with delicate, homemade spiderwebs. Melt white chocolate baking melts in the microwave or per the manufacturer’s
instructions. Use a squeeze bottle or a small spatula to drizzle the chocolate onto a piece of waxed paper in the shape of a spiderweb. Allow the chocolate to cool and then carefully peel off the paper.
stant mashed potatoes. Using a pastry bag fitted with a basic hole cake decorating tip, pipe squiggly lines of potato across the meat. Bake for around 20 minutes, until meat is thoroughly cooked and potatoes are crisp.
Mashed Brains Create a shepherd’s pieinspired dinner that’s inspired by the look of brains. Make your favorite meatloaf or hamburger recipe and place into a ramekin or even cupcake pans. Whip up a batch of homemade or in-

Roof may need check before winter Get inspection from licensed contractor, association says By Tom Munds firstname.lastname@example.org Cooler temperatures and early snows mean it’s time to make sure the roof can deal with what winter has to offer. For homeowners concerned about the condition of their roofs, the Colorado Roofing Association has a number of recommendations, including advising that the first step is to hire a licensed roofing contractor to do an inspection. Apex Roofing Consultants is a licensed roofing contractor located in Centennial, and owner Michael Dye said the company often gets calls from homeowners concerned about the condition of their roof. “Seeing missing shingles, shingles on the ground or shingles that are still on the roof but with the edges turned up are signals the homeowner should call a professional roofing contractor to evaluate the roof, he said. “We frequently get those calls and when we do, we try to get out as quickly as possible to do an inspection. “ He said his company is aware of the state of the economy, “so, if we can do it safely, we will do minor repairs to restore the integrity of the roof so it is ready for winter weather.” Apex Roofing has more than 25 years of roofing experience and is a licensed, bonded contractor that does work on residential and commercial roofs, Dye said. He said 95 percent of the company’s jobs come as referrals. He also talked about roofers he called storm chasers. “When we have some bad weather, we see the arrival of the storm chasers,” Dye said. “They come into the area and try to sign up as much business as possible as quickly possible. Typically, a storm chaser will go to a house and usually tell the owner their roof is damaged and needs to be repaired. We urge homeowners not to sign anything but to call a local, professional, licensed roofing contractor for a
Stock photo second opinion.” He said professional contractors will provide an accurate assessment. “Sometimes repairs are needed,” he said. “But sometimes we’ll do the second opinion inspection and tell the homeowner that we’d love to sell them a roof but there is nothing wrong with the roof on their home.” Homeowners searching for a professional licensed roofing contractor can find tips at the Colorado Roofing Association’s website at www.coloradoroofing.com The association states its goal is to help people make informed decisions regarding having work done on the roof.

Generally, you can find a property in good condition without all of the hassle. What is one tip for someone looking to sell a house? Sellers need to realistically price their property. Consideration of the value the market will be bear is essential. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? Prequalify and know your price range.

What is the most unusual thing you’ve encountered while working in Real Estate? Mostly, it has been our four legged friends. At the top of the stairs there was a gate leading to the deck where an unfriendly German Shepherd was waiting - did not show that property. I arrived at a property where some unfriendly dogs were looking out a picture window and ferociously barking - did not show that property. My take is that it is not worth endangering my clients or myself. Left to right: When first becoming a real estate agent, Jean had a sketch portrait done. She continues to uses this portrait to this day.; Jean Kane; The skiing caricature was done at Beaver Creek.

o, you want to build a redwood deck on the back of your home. You contact Joe Contractor and he agrees to build it for $15,000.00. You pay him $5,000.00 down, make progress payments to him and pay the remaining amount at the time the project is finished. You love your deck. Two weeks later, you receive a notice from ABC Lumber Company.
Joe Contractor did not bother paying for the 2x4s and other lumber which he used to build your deck, and the supplier now wants his $10,000.00 for the lumber. The supplier is threatening to place a mechanic’s lien on your property unless he is paid. A mechanic’s lien is a tool used by contractors, workers and suppliers for payment for work that has been done on your property which improves it. You are obviously upset because you paid the full amount to Joe Contractor, and expected him to
pay his supplier, only he did not. Well, Colorado law has protected you. In residential properties, as long as the contractor is paid, any lien placed upon your property by a subcontractor or supplier is invalid and any suit brought on that lien will be dismissed. Still, it is a nuisance and could take up to a year for a title company to remove the lien from your property. If you own a commercial property, the Colorado statute discussed above does not apply. However, commer-

Also, the lien statement must be complete and accurate, and must be served on the owner of the property and the general contractor at least ten days before it is recorded in the office of the clerk and recorder of the county in which the property is located. Failure to be accurate and to serve the right parties renders the lien invalid. Timing is also important for the lien to be valid. It must be recorded no later than four months from the time the last substantial work is done on the property, if labor and materials are involved. If the lien is for labor only, then it must be filed no more than two months from the time the project is completed. Finally, the lien expires unless suit is brought on the lien no later than six months after the lien is recorded. So whether you are a property owner concerned that liens could be placed against your property and result in a lawsuit, or a contractor, subcontractor or supplier who wants to get paid for the work he or she has done to improve your property, there are many rules and traps in the mechanic’s lien statute. There is little room for errors. We strongly recommend that you consult a competent real estate attorney if you find yourself on wrong end of this problem, whether you want the lien perfected, or you don’t want it on your property.

cial landowners are also protected thanks to the so-called “trust fund” statute. That law states that that contractor holds any money paid to a contractor in trust for the specific purpose of paying all of his subcontractors and suppliers for that particular job. If he uses the money for other purposes, he commits theft and could face criminal charges. A letter to the non-paying contractor pointing out that he is in violation of the trust fund statute usually brings results. Another glitch in the lien process is when you are the property owner, and your tenant tries to make improvements without your permission, leaving you holding the bag for the $15,000.00 redwood deck. In such cases, in order to avoid a lien on your property, you must post a notice of non-liability on the site of the property in a conspicuous place within five days after you have learned what your tenant has done and the work has started. The claimant, of course, has rights as well whether it is the primary contractor, subcontractor, or supplier. However, he must be careful not to overstate the lien amount. If he or she knowingly exaggerates the claim, he could lose the entire amount of the lien and pay the property owner’s attorney fees in addition.

Gators almost bit by Golden’s wildcat Salas has big game but Demons’ fall 35-14 By Craig Harper
email@example.com Smarting from a tough loss to topranked Broomfield, Standley Lake could have used a breather last Friday against struggling Golden. Instead, the Gators almost got trapped. The Demons unleashed a “wildcat’’ formation with star running back Paris Salas taking almost all the snaps and made Standley Lake squirm for a half before the Gators took control for a 35-14 4A Mountain League victory and kept Golden winless since it received a forfeit in the season opener. “We came out a little flat,’’ said the Gators’ Matt Fujinami, who accounted for 187 yards of offense and had a touchdown catch and run. “It was one of those games you have sometimes that you’ve got to persevere from coming out flat. I think we did a great job in the second half coming out with a little more fire in our belly.’’ Credit Golden for contributing to Standley Lake’s tough first half in which it was outgained 252-170 yards, much of that due to the running of Salas. The senior rushed for 226 of his 266 yards in the first half and scored on runs of 58 and 64 yards. His first touchdown with 6:28 left in the first quarter gave the Demons their first lead of the season. “We did it a little bit last week (against George Washington) and we’ve done it in pieces,’’ Golden coach Mike Joseph said of the wildcat formation. “But our receivers are banged up and we’re not going to be able to throw the ball.
Standley Lake Gator Matt Fujinami runs and end around against Golden Friday at the North Area Athletic Complex. “Paris is our one healthy back, and he can do a lot of things, so we wanted to get him the ball as much as we could. It’s 1903 football, and we’re not too bad at it.’’ Salas surpassed the 1,000-yard mark with his effort, and has 1,112 yards with two games left. He has scored eight of Golden’s 10 touchdowns, all on rushes. “He’s Paris, there’s nothing more you can say,’’ Joseph said. “He’s a great football player.’’ Standley Lake coach Don Morse was aware the Demons had used the wildcat previously, but he didn’t anticipate them using it exclusively. “We knew Salas was a great back, but his cutback ability … he
can hesitate and wait for a hole to open, and that’s when he runs.’’ A Salas fumble at midfield led to the Gators’ first touchdown, set up by a 33yard pass from Jacob Naranjo to Fujinami. The two hooked up on a 31-yard touchdown that put the Gators ahead 14-6. But an inadvertent whistle kept the Demons’ final drive of the half alive and they tied the game with 46.9 seconds left in the half on Paris’ 64-yard run. Standley Lake reverted to its breadand-butter running game in the second half. The Gators marched 62 yards - all eight plays rushes - to take the lead for good on Jordan Downing’s second touchdown run, a 9-yarder. Moments later, Fijinami, who had 100 yards rushing and 87 on 4 catches, broke a 57-yard TD run up the middle. “Offensively, I felt pretty comfortable throughout,’’ Morse said. “I thought we could do what we wanted. But we knew it would be tough. They’re a good program. They’re well-coached and they fight. It’s always been a tough game when we play those guys.’’ The Gators finished with 357 yards rushing, including 62 by Downing, 72 by Patrick McKinney and 67 by Mario Spears. Naranjo was 6-of-12 passing for 108 yards. “We got back to what like to do: ground and pound,’’ Fujinami said of the second half. “The line picked it up and the backs ran hard.’’ Golden (1-7, 0-3) lined up backup quarterback Michael Barella in the backfield with Salas and used starting QB Jake McCormick in the slot. Barella took some direct snaps and threw seven passes, completing one for 11 yards to McCormick, who was 0-for-3 passing.

Former Norsemen no strangers to success on pitch Mines’ Akindele, Metro’s Herschberger gearing up for RMAC tourney By Brian Miller
LAKEWOOD — After spending three years playing alongside Tesho Akindele while the pair was at Northglenn High School, Marc Herschberger has had a great view - sometimes a bit too good - into the growth Akindele has had on the soccer field at Colorado School of Mines. Herschberger, a senior at Metro State University, has matched up with his former prep teammate seven times over the past three seasons. The Orediggers have a 4-2-1 edge in those meetings, including a pair of victories over the Roadrunners this fall. Akindele, a junior at Mines, recently became the school’s career leader in goals scored and Herschberger couldn’t be happier for him - though not when it came at the expense of Metro State. “It’s always kind of cool to see him on the other end of the pitch. We’ve always been friends off the field. It’s always been a friendly rivalry between us,” Herschberger said. “It’s cool for me to see how he’s evolved as a player. ,I’m really proud of what he’s done with his time at Mines and coming from Northglenn.” e “We’ve known each other for a long time. When we -beat Metro it’s even better. It’s nice to just put it in his d d e d t

d lGators continued from Page 20 r - Joseph felt Golden was in the game even -when it trailed 28-14. A long delay ensued 7when the Demons’ Jess Wainright was inpjured during a Standley Lake punt return and lay prone on the turf. Wainright eventueally was taken off the field on a stretcher to ean ambulance - waving to the crowd in the tprocess. . “He’s gong to be all right; it was prescautionary,’’ Joseph said. “He was in good yspirits the entire time and never lost consciousness. It was his neck, but he also had sa seizure-like episode, and that’s what they 2were concerned about.’’ o “We thought we had a legitimate chance,’’ rJoseph added. “And for a half - and for more than that until Jess got hurt - it was a great dfootball game.’’ d The win puts Standley Lake (6-2 overall, s2-1 Mountain) in a good position to secure a berth in 4A’s 16-team playoff field with a pwin over George Washington. The Gators, -who entered the Golden game 13th in wildecard points, close the regular season against ethird-ranked Monarch. , “If we beat George Washington, we’re in -regardless,’’ Morse said. “But if we don’t then we have to (beat Monarch). 7-3 should get 1us in.”
face a little bit,” Akindele joked. “But it’s good that we’re both doing really good this year.” Both players have done the Norse proud in recent years. Akindele has twice been an NCAA Division II firstteam All-American and has notched 52 goals thus far, including a single-season record 19 as a true freshman. Herschberger has also been a consistent scoring threat for the Roadrunners since his freshman season. The senior has also stood out on the academic side, crediting his parents for instilling that work ethic in him. He was the 2011 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Academic Player of the Year while working toward degrees in business marketing and business management and juggling soccer. Both Mines and Metro State are winding down the regular season, with the RMAC Tournament less than a week away. The stretch is hitting Herschberger a bit harder since this his final season. “I wouldn’t say it’s hard to comprehend but it really puts a lot of things into perspective,” he said. “You always want to go out on a high note. It kind of makes you realize what you have to put into a season, especially when it’s your last one. It’s bittersweet.” Akindele still has another year remaining at Mines, but his name is already firmly etched into the team’s record books. After leading the RMAC in points in each of his first two seasons, Akindele broke the school mark of 50 career goals Oct. 14 against Adams State. The junior’s 51st goal bested Rob Zimmerman (1982-85), and he added No. 52 on Sunday in a 2-0 victory over Colo-
rado Christian. “I think I’ve just gained a lot of confidence and become more of a leader on the team,” Akindele said. “Freshman year I was just more playing my role and scoring goals when I could. But now everybody looks to me to be the guy to score the goals and be the guy to make things happen.” Orediggers coach Frank Kohlenstein said Akindele has made better decisions on the field and brought other players into his game. “Those are all a credit to him and how hard he works and that he wants to get better,” Kohlenstein said. “Unlike a lot of coaches, if you’re one of the best players then I expect more and I keep trying to get you better rather than keep patting you on the back.” Mines (10-3-2, 7-2-2) was second in the conference headed into Tuesday’s visit to No. 1 Regis, after press deadline. “Two years ago when we were ranked No. 1 in the country, they beat us at our home field,” Akindele said. “We’re the underdogs, so all the pressure has to be on them.” Metro State (9-6-1, 6-5-1 in the RMAC) was fifth going into Tuesday’s home game with Adams State. “It’s huge for us, especially right now with where we’re sitting in the RMAC. We understand as a team that every game is super important,” Herschberger said. “We really have to win out, not only just to go into the RMAC Tournament on a hot streak but to get us in the best possible position.”
Schneider, Mines men are RMAC runner-ups Orediggers second to Adams State; football dominates Colorado Mesa Staff Reports firstname.lastname@example.org
Call it just another step taken for the Colorado School of Mines men’s cross country team. Backed up Phil Schneider and Sean Gildea, who finished second and third overall, the Orediggers were the runner-up to Adams State last Saturday at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Championships at Monument Valley Park in Colorado Springs. The Grizzlies finished with 30 points and Tabor Stevens won the RMAC title with a time of 25 minutes, 6.90 seconds. Schneider was next at 25:10.50 and Gildea was just four seconds back. It was the highest finish for Mines in the program’s history. Derek Alcorn, Adam Bodnar, Russell Drummond and Andrew Epperson finished 12th through 15th for Mines. On the women’s side, Mines placed fourth, led by senior Hannah Schuster’s time of 22:59.80. Hannah Cooling placed 18th and Marie Patton was 22nd. Adams State
won the women’s meet as well. The NCAA Division II South Central Region will take place Nov. 3 at the Willis Case Golf Course in Denver. Mines routs Colorado Mesa Backed by a defense that forced seven turnovers, the Mines football team bounced back from a conference loss to defeat Colorado Mesa 34-7 last Saturday in Golden. Matt Brown passed for 304 yards and a score and Kole Kadavy returned an interception 73 yards for a score. Tyler Denson had 10 tackles, a sack and an interception for Mines (5-3, 3-3 in the RMAC). The Orediggers visit Western State this weekend. Kohlenstein reaches impressive mark Mines men’s soccer coach Frank Kohlenstein earned his 500th career coaching victory Sunday in the Orediggers’ 2-0 victory over Colorado Christian in Lakewood. Tesho Akindele and Zach Page-Belknap scored for the Orediggers (10-3-2, 7-2-2), who visited top-ranked Regis on Tuesday, after press deadline. On the women’s side, Mines downed New Mexico Highlands 3-2 on Friday and CCU 2-0 on Sunday. Dani Hering, Anna Evans and Becca Morales scored against Highlands, and
Evans and Deirdre Johnson found the back of the net Sunday as Mines (12-4, 9-3) won its sixth in a row. The team closes out the season this weekend against UC-Colorado Springs on Friday and Colorado Mesa on Sunday at the CSM Soccer Stadium. Volleyball’s win streak snapped Western New Mexico put a halt to the 10-match winning streak for the Mines volleyball team with a 25-17, 25-21, 21-25, 10-25, 19-17 victory last Friday. The Orediggers (17-5, 11-2), who dropped to 16th in the AVCA poll, bounced back with a three-set sweep of New Mexico Highlands the next evening. The Orediggers return home Friday to face Chadron State.

Jankowski takes second at league meet Elizabeth’s Goldsberry wins individual honors; Gators capture team title By Scott Stocker
email@example.com LAKEWOOD — There were no individual championships for Standley Lake in last Saturday’s Jefferson County League gymnastics meet at Bear Creek High School. But Gators coach Kristen Larington was more than pleased with the way her team responded. And why shouldn’t she be? After all, Standley Lake, led by Zoie Hoben, Breanna Polson, Maddi York and Sara Bissani, was able to come away with the team championship. The Gators counted on overall depth to score 179.65 points to edge Elizabeth (178.9) and third-place Chatfield (177.75). Danae Goldsberry of Elizabeth won the all-around in the 10-team meet scoring 37.125. She was able to edge Arvada West’s Jessica Jankowski (36.975) and Hoben (36.80) for the title. Bissani was seventh in the All-around (36.25). “Obviously we hit on our events and had a great meet,” Larington said. “I think the kids did well with the pressure as it felt pretty intense. We just came in
and hit and I’m excited and I couldn’t ask for more today. Zoie is my senior and she came in and had a great meet, hitting her best of the season. She was a girl who helped take us over the top. Now, we’ll have to see what happens in the region next week.” Hoben placed second on floor behind Goldsberry scoring 9.625 to her opponents 9.65. Bissani placed second on vault, Polson was third on beam (9.4) and York placed fourth on floor (9.45) to round out the top finishers for the champions. “The pressure was a hurdle for us to get over and I think our team did amazing, “ Hoben said. “It was so exciting. The key was to go out and have fun and my 9.6 on floor was my best of the season. We’ll be excited for region and I think we can do well. The competition is going to be strong, but I think we’ll be ready. This was just a good day for all of us.” Goldsberry was strong on all events except vault where she failed to place among the top seven. “Definitely it was not as good as I hoped on vault for me, nothing like I can usually do,” Goldsberry said. “But I felt good on floor, a bit better than I expected, as well as Beam and Bars. It would have been nice to win as a team, but we did have a good effort. “For the regions, we have to learn how
to keep the pressure off,” Goldsberry added. “The big meets have been tougher. We have to be able to help each other and focus so we can hit our full potential. I don’t think we have all season and it would be nice to put it all together for region and state.” Arvada West finished fourth in the final standings with a score of 174.925 and now the Wildcats of coach Lori Wyss are looking forward to this weeks region meet. “As a team we are starting to put things together and we want to remain strong mentally,” said Jankowski, who finished second on beam (9.425) and fifth on both the bars (9.050) and vault (9.25). “My meet really went well today and I felt solid overall with only a few bobbles. We need to focus as a team and not worry about other teams. I’m proud of what we have been able to do.” Added Wyss: “The girls did a nice job and I think they were able to clean up their routines from the regular season. There is a lot of confidence we can get to state as a team, but we have a lot of work to do. Standley Lake did a great job. Jessica was solid today, solid and confident.” Bear Creek’s first-year coach Lauren Ljunghag had her hands full, juggling the days actions as well as coaching her Bears. But their results were more than pleasing.
“We hit our best score of the season by five points,” Ljunghag said. “We came in shooting for 170 and scored a 173.35, really good for us. I just hope we can keep up to momentum for the regional next week. It’s a tough way to state, but hopefully we can up our score.” Bear Creek was led by Myranda Dominguez, who finished fourth on vault (9.3) and tied for fourth on the beam (9.35). “Personally I had a very good meet other than the Bars,” Dominguez said. “I scored over nine on all the other events which was the first time for me in the 9’s on three events in the same meet. I thought our team did awesome. I hope we can take this and carry over to the region, but, of course, do better overall. We just want to keep the momentum going.” Lakewood’s Camille Anthony was a leader for the Tigers as was Katie Leach for Pomona. “Today was one of the best I’ve hit and I’m just proud of all on our team,” Anthony said. “There were disappointments as we had more falls on beam than we wanted. I love floor and felt good here.” Added Leach, “I think the team did good, but I think I could have done a lot better. My vault was my best at 9.2 and overall, this has been my best season. I think the first time I really connected. I hope we can do well at region.”

The 3/50 Project to strengthen our local economy The holiday season is just around the corner and for many of us that means we are gearing up for holiday shopping! Odds are you and many others will be looking to fill stockings and find the perfect gifts for loved ones. I have a simple request for all of you holiday shoppers – think 3/50! The 3/50 Project simply asks you to patronize three independent businesses each month and spend a total of $50. About two years ago, former business owner, Cinda Baxter published a blog, “Save the Economy Three Stores at a Time,” encouraging consumers to support local brick and Brian Willms, mortar businesses with the straightforward approach of pick President/CEO three stores, spend $50. It’s quite simple: pick three local, independent, brickand-mortar businesses and spend $50 among them each month. In doing so, you can positively influence our local economy. How? A 2008 study by research firm Civic Economics estimated that for every $100 spent in independently-owned stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenses. Whereas the same $100 spent in a national chain would return only $43 to the community. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a strong believer and supporter in free enterprise economics; businesses operating competitively governed by supply and demand. I, like many of you, shop Wal-Mart for a variety of reasons and I plan to continue my patronage of their store. Successful communities have residents and visitors who understand and appreciate the balance of big box stores and independentlyowned businesses and stores. Big box stores and franchise businesses play an important role in our community. They are vital to supplying jobs and income to be spent in our economy. Conversely, I’m a big fan of the locally-owned, independent businesses that provide something the chain stores don’t offer. For example, I shop The Market Place in Belmar and I find it to be a great supplier for those unique gifts I can’t find in the big box stores. I also like to get top-notch unique ground coffee for my brother-in-law from the Village Roaster on Garrison just north of Alameda. The 3/50 Project is a simple way to keep more of that income circulating in our local economy by picking three locally-owned small businesses and spending $50 among them. This isn’t an “all or nothing” proposal that insists you shop locally only, or you stop shopping at chains and big box stores. The 3/50 Project is a balanced approach to strengthening the local economy by simply patronizing three independent businesses each month. According to Baxter, if half of the employed population spent $50 each month in locally-owned businesses, $42.6 billion in revenue would be generated. The Civic Economics study approximates that if 10 percent of the market shifts to local businesses more than $140 million would be generated in new economic activity, 1,600 new jobs and more than $50 million in new wages. The goal is simple: funnel money back into our community… pick three local businesses, spend $50!

It was nearly a decade ago that Heather Jean DeWild was killed, and her body dumped in a shallow grave in Clear Creek Canyon. But in a couple weeks, a suspect will finally stand trial. DeWild’s estranged husband, Daniel Donald DeWild, 39, will begin trial on charges of first-degree murder on Nov. 5. Daniel DeWild’s identical twin, David Norman DeWild, has already pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit seconddegree murder, and will likely be sentenced after the trial according to the district attorney’s office. The felony charge carries a mandatory 10-year prison term. David DeWild’s wife, who was his livein girlfriend back in 2003 when the murder is alleged to have occurred, was set free last week. Prosecutors had charged Mary Roseanne DeWild with being an accessory to murder, and participating in a conspiracy to commit murder. She faced a maximum of nine years in prison. “As the investigation proceeded we came to believe that we could not prove
this case beyond a reasonable doubt,”t said Jefferson County District Attorneyp spokesperson Pam Russell. She said thatd there would be no further statementst made by the DA’s office about Maryk DeWild’s case due to one co-defendantD awaiting sentencing, and another one onm the verge of trial. t The DA’s office released a December 2011 indictment that charged allu three suspects with first-degree murder,i though the charges were later reducedw for Mary DeWild. David Norman DeWilda pleaded guilty to the lesser charges ofo conspiracy to commit second-degreee murder. b Russell said the prosecution team forl Daniel DeWild remained committed tos going to trial. a According to court documents, in Julyc 2003 Heather DeWild was only days awayl from finalizing her divorce from Dan-t iel DeWild, when he lured her and theirt children, ages 3 and 5, to his Edgewater home under false pretenses. b On Sept. 4, 2003, a badly decomposedc body, later identified as Heather DeWildt was found buried along US Highway 6,h wrapped in trash bags and duct tape. t

Gifts aplenty at craft fairs
As November approaches, it’s time to start looking forward and planning for the upcoming holidays. No matter what your faith, there is probably going to be some kind of special event coming in December, and for most of us that means shopping for gifts to mark the occasion. Of course our younger recipients usually have a wish list and make it abundantly clear as to what they want, so shopping for them usually involves heading to the malls or big box stores that have the latest and greatest toys and devices, but we all have those adults on our lists that leave it up to us to pick out something nice for them, and when asked just say “surprise me.” Then of course there are those people on the list that seem to already have everything and you never know just what to get for them, right? I don’t know about every one else, but every time I head over to the crowded malls and try to find something unique, all I usually come home with is a bad head cold or sore throat. Well fear not, the solution to those shopping woes is at hand, and I’ll let you in on some of my secret little holiday traditions that enable me to shop for everyone and actually have a lot of fun in the process. You really don’t have to venture very far because Golden has some of the best shopping places you could ever ask for. First of all, as I mentioned a few weeks ago, we have a terrific little downtown here and it’s filled with marvelous shops that have tons of unique gifts and almost all of them are within walking distance from each other, so you can just park downtown and make a day out of exploring them, and stop for lunch or a snack at some really good restaurants while you are out and about. If you haven’t been shopping much in Golden, trust me, you will be surprised at what all you will find right here in town. But there are a few special places
that I like to go to and find those really unique gifts and they hold annual events that always make my holidays feel complete. At the top of the list is the Holiday Craft Fair held at the First United Methodist Church, 1500 Ford St., in Golden. This one runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 2-3. It’s packed with unique artists and craftsmen as well as special food items, like soups and pies, and they even serve lunch there from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.. I have been going to this for several years and am always surprised to find something different showing up there every year. It’s a lot of fun, and the people couldn’t be friendlier. They even have some of their pies frozen so you can take them home for later and they will show you how to reheat them so they taste like you just baked them, and can fool your mother-in-law into thinking you suddenly learned how to be a champion baker. They have a lot of moderately priced items, including handmade toys and clothing items, so you can’t go wrong with this one. It’s sponsored by United Methodist Women and more information available at www.goldenfirstumc. org. Next on the list is the Red Rocks Country Club’s 21st Annual Holiday Boutique. This one is open to the public on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9-10. Hours are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. It has lots of really cute items there, especially handmade holiday decorations and ornaments, but also features jewelry, florals, glass, unique
gift items, gourmet foods and more. There is a $3 entry fee that goes to benefit the Ralston House for abused and neglected children of Jefferson County and additional donations are gratefully accepted. Red Rocks Country Club is located at 16235 W. Belleview Ave in Morrison. To get more information just call 303-697-4438 or visit www. redrockscountryclub.org. And now the big one, The Foothills Art Center’s annual Holiday Art Market. This is No. 1 on my holiday “can’t miss” list as it always has whatever I need to finish up my shopping for those people who need something unique and special. The entire Art Center is converted into a magical creative shopping paradise with dozens of highly skilled artists bringing some of the best the area has to offer. If you are looking for a special piece of jewelry for someone, trust me, this is the place to go. I have bought several pieces there over the years, and they always get comments and compliments because they are simply gorgeous and always one-ofa-kind. They also have great hand woven things like scarves and hats, pottery, wall hangings and paintings, photography and you can even find special Christmas cards and tree ornaments there. The Holiday Art Market runs for several weeks, starting Nov. 9 and ending Dec. 29 during regular business hours for the Foothills Art Center, Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. They are closed on Mondays. It’s at 809 15th St. in downtown Golden. Call 303-279-3922 or visit www.foothillsartcenter.org to find out more. OK, so now you have no excuses for not getting your shopping done and finding something different. Happy hunting!
