A moving performance Staff report It’s the Year of the Sheep, and about 580 people braved a snowy, cold weekend to celebrate the Chinese New Year on Feb. 21. The Great Wall Chinese Academy, which has about 80 students, ages preschool to high school, said Mei Cheng, the school’s founder, put on two hour-long performances on stage at the Southridge Recreation Center in Highlands Ranch. The show opened with the popular lion and dragon dance when costumed dancers went up and down the aisles, interacting with the excited audience. Attendees of the celebration also enjoyed the cultural fair in which traditional Chinese food and refreshments, and handmade Chinese arts and crafts such as calligraphy and origami, were available for viewing and purchasing.

Don’t get scammed

By Christy Steadman

csteadman @coloradocommunitymedia.com The most popular piece of origami art that Jessie Lo sold at the Chinese New Year celebration was Pikachu, a yellow and chubby Pokémon character. “Kids love the Pikachu,” said Lo, an artist of 3-D origami from Lakewood, “and the dragon. It’s more traditional Chinese.” Lo, 53, began practicing her talent of folding paper about 13 years ago when her father passed away. As a coping method for her mother, who is now 86 and still crafting, Lo taught her how to make origami. Both women were making origami, and the basement soon became full, Lo said, so she decided to sell the art at Chinese New Year celebrations in the Denvermetro area. This is the second year Lo has attended the Highlands Ranch Community Association’s celebration, and sold little 3-D origami animals. “For the hobby, it’s good,” Lo said. “It’s not for the money — I only sell once a year.” Because it is the Year of the Sheep, they were popular this year, she said. A sheep cost buyers $6. Last year, she experimented with mak-

A Highlands Ranch mom accused of attempting to murder her children will spend eight years in prison and 10 years on probation after reaching a plea deal. Prosecutors agreed to drop attempted murder charges against Erin Elizabeth Giberti, 37, who pleaded guilty Feb. 17 to two counts of child abuse, one being a Class 3 felony of attempting to cause the death of a child. A jury trial had been expected Giberti to start that day, but the plea is a “fair and just” way to solve the case, Senior Deputy District Attorney Chris Gallo said, because it avoids having to make the children testify, which is always a big concern among a prosecution team. “The hardest choice you have to make,” Gallo said, “is what is the worth of making a child testify.” As part of her sentence, Giberti is court-ordered to have no contact with children, including her own, for the duration of her incarceration and probation. This ensures the children will be adults by the time her sentence is completed, Gallo said. On Dec. 9, 2013, Giberti took multiple Xanax pills and drank a large amount of vodka within a short period of time, according to court documents. She told her two sons, ages 3 and 6 at the time of the incident, to get in the car because they were going to the store. Once the three were in the car, Giberti purposefully left it running with the windows rolled

Sheriff ’s office boosts awareness, offers tips By Christy Steadman

She used orange, blue and white paper, she said, and picked out a shape that most resembled a horse. It wasn’t exact, but people must have liked it, she said, because she sold all eight that she brought to this year’s celebration. Pikachu is made of 900 pieces — paper

that is folded then glued — and it took her a day-and-a-half to make one 3-D figurine. But Lo enjoys spending the time making the intricate craft. “I love people to see them,” she said. “You have to do something that makes you happy.”

It may be a person calling to say you won a large amount of money, and you have to pay a fee to claim it. Or someone might say a loved one is in jail and you have to pay their bail. Sometimes the person will claim to be from the FBI, the IRS or a debt collector. The scammer tries to appeal to a person’s fears. Locally, people fall victim to this type of scam on a weekly basis, said Sgt. Ron Hanavan, of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. But scams can happen anywhere in the nation, or the world. “Chances are,” he said, “if something doesn’t seem right, it’s probably a scam.” The sheriff’s office has received numerous Scam continues on Page 9

Wish Week off to rousing start Rock Canyon event benefits Parker elementary student By Jane Reuter

jreuter @coloradocommunitymedia.com Rock Canyon High School kicked off its annual Wish Week with a rally so loud and spirited it astounded the Wish Week family. “We’re just overwhelmed,” said Jennifer Griffin, whose son Jeremy was chosen as this year’s Rock Canyon Wish Week child. Jeremy, who has been diagnosed with lymphoma, is a 7-year-old Mountain View Elementary School student who lives in Parker with his parents and sister Natalie. All were in attendance for the opening rally of RCHS’ Wish Week, which launches seven days of student-led events to raise money designed to grant Jeremy’s wish and that of other children. Jeremy’s wish is to go on a Disney cruise. RCHS has repeatedly shattered national records with its weeklong Make-A-Wish Colorado fundraiser. Last year, it raised $72,500 as part of the foundation’s Kids for Wish Kids program, eclipsing its previous record 2013 tally of $60,500. Teacher Tony Koy reminded the students the week isn’t a competition. “This week is about what we can give to somebody else,” he said. Students in matching blue Wish Week T-shirts cheered and stamped in unison during the assembly, shaking the gymnasium bleachers so hard they made principal Andy Abner cheerfully nervous. Jennifer Griffin frequently dabbed at her eyes and Jeremy smiled as a video about his diagnosis and generous spirit played during the assembly. “I super hate cancer,” Jeremy said during the video. The week’s events include benefit

Jeremy will be there for several of the events. “It was amazing,” said Jeremy’s father Mike, smiling at Jeremy as he played quietly with a dinosaur Lego

after the assembly. “He takes after my shy side.” The school held its first Wish Week in 2010, and it’s become the most anticipated week of the year. To date, RCHS has raised more than $230,000 and granted 33 wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.

School leaders continue capital-needs outreach District gathering feedback on resolving building issues By Jane Reuter

jreuter@coloradocommunitymedia.com The Douglas County School District has reached out to more than 40 community groups in the last few weeks about its long and growing list of capital improvement needs. The district is soliciting feedback to guide it in finding the best way to finance the more than $275 million in work needed over the next five years. “Our buildings are safe, but our systems are aging,” DCSD construction project manager Annette Ernst told the Lone Tree City Council Feb. 17. The average school district building is 19 years old. The oldest is Douglas County High School in Castle Rock at 53 years old. Of its 84 school district facilities, 42 percent are deemed in need of significant capital improvements, with five categorized at “high risk of component failure.” Components are the major parts of a building’s infrastructure system, and include mechanical chillers, boilers, fire alarm systems, elevators, roofs and transformers, among other high-dollar items. Just 27 facilities are considered in good condition, according to DCSD. The schools with the highest level of estimated need are all high schools, and include Chaparral and Ponderosa in Parker, Castle Rock’s Douglas County, and Highlands Ranch, Mountain Vista and ThunderRidge in Highlands Ranch. But that’s mainly because the high schools are so much larger than the district’s other buildings. “Our typical high schools have approximately 250,000 square feet as compared to a typical elementary school with 54,000 square feet,” district spokeswoman Paula Hans wrote in an email. “There is also much more infrastructure in the building compo-

nents of a high school than at an elementary school. Thus, there is a lot more capital to renew at our high schools since they are larger.” DCSD sees the need for an addition to Castle View High School, more preschool rooms and construction of a special education facility. Many of its 300 school buses have logged more than 400,000 miles, and several are more than two decades old. Rapidly changing technology and fire and safety requirements require near-constant investment and upgrades. And the current student population of about 64,000 is expected to double by 2040. Among its options, DCSD could ask taxpayers to continue a mill levy that otherwise would expire this year. If voters approved the proposal, their school tax bill would remain unchanged instead of dropping by about $36 a year. “It’s a unique option in which you could issue up to about $220 million in new bonds without impacting the tax bill for the average homeowner,” said DCSD budget director Scott Smith. The district is considering other options as well, and will present feedback from its recent meetings to the school board in April. School board president Kevin Larsen said the board hasn’t yet focused on a preferred approach. “We’ll be checking in with long-range planning, finding out the feedback and determining what the pulse is out there,” he said. Members of DCSD’s Long Range Planning Committee have for years warned the board about deteriorating conditions in its buildings, and say the $275 million in unfunded capital needs grows by $35 million each year the issues aren’t addressed. If DCSD opts to put a question to voters, it would appear on the Nov. 3 ballot, along with questions to elect three school board members. The current terms of Larsen, Craig Richardson and Rich Robbins expire in November.

Highlands Ranch gets 8 inches of snow Crews out around the clock during weekend storm

weekend of Feb. 21 and 22, which makes this the biggest snowfall so far this season, said Highlands Ranch Metro District spokeswoman Sherry Eppers. Metro district crewmembers deduced the totaled amount after they measured the snowfall at about 10 different locations during the morning of Feb. 23. In large communities like Highlands Ranch, it is common for some areas to

receive a significantly larger amount of snowfall, said the metro district’s parks manager, Jerry Hunter. For example, he said, the Backcountry got quite a bit more snow than the 8-inch average, and some plow crews were cleaning up 2-feet snowdrifts from some areas. But, for the most part, he said, the snowfall for this storm “was pretty evenly distributed across Highlands Ranch.” Snowplows were operating throughout the weekend, “around the clock,” Hunter

said. “Monday was kind of a mop-up,” he said, which, he added, meant crews were primarily focused on removing large snow pile-ups. However, the Denver-metro area is expecting more snow throughout the week, Hunter said, and on average, March is the snowiest month of the year. “We enjoyed the 70-degree weather (last week),” he said, “but now we’re back to reality.”

Snow removal in Highlands Ranch is the responsibility of three entities: • Douglas County Public Works is responsible for about 2,400 lane miles, which includes major arterial roads, connector roads, residential streets and cul-de-sacs. Crews begin removal at snowfall. Contact: 303-660-7480 or www. douglas.co.us/publicworks. • The Highlands Ranch Metro District is responsible for about 150 miles of trails and sidewalks, including parking lots at community and neighborhood parks. Crews begin

removal if/when 3 inches of snow has accumulated that is likely to remain on the ground for more than 24 hours. Contact: 303-791-2710 or www.highlandsranch.org. • Homeowners are responsible for removing snow from residential sidewalks that border the homeowner’s property, plus areas with adjacent mailboxes and fire hydrants. Homeowners have 24 hours after the snow has fallen to begin the removal work.

New Year Continued from Page 1

The following are some fun facts on Chinese New Year: • In Western cultures, it is known as the Chinese New Year, but in China, it is known as the Spring Festival. The history dates back more than 4,000 years, and today, it is celebrated as an eightday, official holiday in China. • The actual date of the celebration varies, as it falls on the first day of the first month based on the Chinese lunar calendar. In 2015, Chinese New Year began on Feb. 19 and will end on March 5. • The calendar is associated with the Chinese zodiac, which includes 12 animals that represent a 12-year cycle. The animals are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. This year is the Year of the Sheep/Goat. • A person is a sheep/goat if born in 1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003 and 2015. The sheep/ goat zodiac sign is thought to be among the animals that people like because of its gentle and calm demeanor. It is thought to be a lucky animal that brings positive energy in the universe.

Hannah Chu performs a Mongolian folk dance at the Chinese New Year celebration. Main strengths of the sheep/goat are politeness, cleverness and kind-heartedness. Main weaknesses are moodiness, shyness and indecisiveness.

O U R S

Dreaming of hoops, sure as shootin’ Looking at me now, you would never guess that I played basketball. Looking at me now, you would never guess that I played anything. Maybe the radio. I am not trying to make a favorable impression. I just want to remind myself now and then that I wasn’t always a potato standing in front of an easel, or a potato working on a computer. This occurred to me when I read that Lonnie Porter, head basketball coach at Regis University for 38 years, is retiring. The article tells about his first basketball — it had laces — and the outdoor playing conditions in the winter in Indianapolis. As we get closer to March Madness, it just seems like I could use a little reminiscing. My sister was a high school cheerleader, and dated the star on the basketball team. My sister was a senior, and Rich was a sophomore, so there was talk. I was a junior, and desperately wanted to make the varsity in my senior year. Here’s a spoiler alert: I was the last player cut. The summer before my senior year, Rich did everything he could to improve my game. He drove us all over metro Cincinnati for pickup games with some of the city’s best players. I still hold on to that summer, 1964, with affection. Have you ever been to Cincinnati in

the summertime? It’s unpleasant. My least favorite weather is humidity. Are you good at something, but not very good or great? I was a good basketball player. After I was cut, I captained a team in a Sunday league, and was the league’s leading scorer. So what? It was like winning first prize at the state fair for my pigeon. But it’s a yellowed clipping that still makes me smile. I played intramurals at UCLA, where the intramural teams were exceptionally good. I loved basketball. Not as much now. The pro game not at all, and some of what I don’t like about the pros has made it down to the college level, but not all the way. Pro basketball is a lot like rugby. And dunks seem to be a big deal too often. My father was his school’s captain. Final scores would be 28-15 and 21-17. There was no such thing as a jump shot. He shot free throws underhanded, like everyone else. Much later, Wilt Chamberlain would do the same thing.

We are nearing March Madness, and it is more fun than just about anything in sports. It makes the college football playoffs and all of those ridiculous bowl games seem a little unfulfilling. My team won’t make it into the tournament this year, so I will choose another one. The neat thing is that it only takes five guys, not 22. So smaller schools, like Northern Iowa, have a chance. That can’t happen in football. One year a little school from Terre Haute, Ind., that no one had heard of, and really hasn’t been heard from since, made it all the way to the national championship game. It’s was “Hoosiers” before “Hoosiers.” (By the way, the kid who played Jimmy Chitwood, Maris Valainis, in “Hoosiers,” was cut each of the three times he tried out for his high school team.) I wore Converse All-Stars, because that’s all we had. They were white. When my father was playing, all they had was black. And our shorts looked like tighty boxers. If you’re old enough to remember: The little school from Terre Haute was Indiana State. They had a player named Bird. “Three, 2, 1, Smith from the corner. Scores!” In my sweetest dreams.

Leading by example is powerful If you are like me, you really enjoy it when you can see a leader leading by example. There are some who lead their families, others lead companies or teams, and still others lead communities, organizations, and associations. And yet the ones we seem to respect the most are NOT the ones who lead from afar, or give direction from the ivory tower; the ones we seem to gravitate towards are the leaders who lead from the front. In my line of work I have been truly blessed to have worked for leaders, coaches and trainers who have led by example. Men and women of character and integrity who wouldn’t ask others to do anything that they weren’t prepared to do themselves. I honestly believe that I would not have achieved success in both my personal life or my professional life had it not been for the leaders in the companies I worked for, the leaders who worked with me when I was the CEO or president, the leaders in my church, and the leaders in my community. And I say thank you to each one of them. So as you can see, I have a great appreciation for active, intentional leadership. If you are into history, one leader who led from the front, truly led by example, comes to mind: George Washington. If you haven’t read any of the books written about him, the book “1776” by David McCullough

is a great place to start. But I digress, so let me get back to our story. As I said, one of my very favorite things to observe is when managers, leaders, business owners, fathers, mothers, or others who are in a leadership role lead by example and we get to see it and witness their behavior. If we are smart enough, we may even try and emulate that behavior. And I have a recent story I would like to share with you about someone who truly leads by example. Her name is Nina Hinnendael. I happened to be skiing in Beaver Creek and had the opportunity to see for myself how Nina worked and led by example. She is a manager of a couple of “on-mountain” restaurants and actually the one person who inspired the Candy Cabin at the top of the Strawberry Park lift, chair 12 in Beaver Creek. Her attitude, smile, and work ethic speak for themselves. And as I sat there as a patron I was so impressed by the fact that

even as a leader and a manager, she was cleaning tables, greeting customers, socializing with guests, and directing her staff all at the same time, and I asked her permission to write this column. You see I am also a leader. I have a staff, I work in my community, I volunteer, and I get so caught up in my responsibilities I often forget that I should also be leading by example and manage and lead like Nina, doing some more of the heavy lifting. Now, if we focus on you, yes you, you the business owner, you the vice president, you the venture capitalist, you the manager, you the leader of your family, are you leading by example or are you relying solely on what you accomplished in the past? That is one of the challenges that we have, managers and leaders who have met with success but have forgotten what got us there in the first place … hard work, character, and effort. And we know that talent without effort breeds mediocrity. How about you? Are you a Nina? Do you lead from the front and by example? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com, and when we remember what leadership is all about, it really will be a better than good week.

Construction-defects bill is needed fix Colorado is uniquely positioned to capitalize on numerous economic advantages that have lowered our unemployment rate, seen strong growth in several identified sectors and generated more than 70,000 new jobs in 2014, while the forecast for this year continues to trend upward. While economists predict a 2.5 percent growth rate for 2015, we are faced with an immense issue — skyrocketing housing costs. A recent analysis by Zillow showed renters would need to make $35 an hour to stay within the rule of thumb regarding share of housing costs to annual income. Denver is a desirable city for millennials who bring ideas, innovation, creativity and passion to the workplace. Our housing costs and lack of diversity threaten the very fabric of attainable and affordable options. As a leading statewide business organization, the Colorado Business Roundtable understands how important providing attainable housing is to community build-

ing. COBRT will be unabashedly relentless in our support of options that allow our first responders, teachers, and business community to not only work but also live within our cities and communities. We also have many seniors who desire to live near their children and grandkids who need lower-maintenance properties. Colorado’s construction-defects law passed in 2001 and has undergone several amendments since. Most cite the changes

passed in 2003 and 2007 that have caused owner-occupied, multi-family housing to shrink from 23 percent of the marketplace to 3.1 percent in 2014. While we can spend a lot of time looking at what got us to where we are today, we do not prefer to look in the rearview mirror but find creative, bipartisan, pragmatic ways to fix this issue. Senate Bill 177 is a bipartisan repair or fix in both the House and Senate that has done exactly what needed to happen: stakeholders sitting down and listening to all parties and learning from proposed legislation the past two years. The COBRT is proud to be a part of the Homeowner Opportunity Alliance, a large, diverse coalition of business leaders, trade associations, chambers of commerce and community leaders.

Contest puts big light on little ones Littleton Adventist has monthly program featuring newborns By Jennifer Smith

reports of fraud scams involving Green Dot MoneyPaks, which are reloadable debit cards. The cards, which can be purchased at retail outlets such as grocery and drug stores, are legitimate and offer a convenient banking method, Hanavan said. However, a scammer does not need to have physical possession of the card, he said, because all that is needed is the card number and PIN, which gives the scammer immediate access to the money. “It’s kind of like cash,” Hanavan said, “once it’s gone, it’s gone. It’s not traceable.” Law enforcement has a number of

and protections will not be weakened or restricted by the passage of SB177. Senate Bill 177 ensures that construction issues within a condo or townhouse community are not only addressed fairly and quickly but take into account the rights of homeowners and respect the members of the association community. While every homeowner deserves the right to have, in most cases, their biggest investment protected and repaired in the case of an issue, SB177 stops the current practice in which a small number of owners — often a simple majority of a homeowners association board — can enter into legal action without the knowledge or authorization of the majority of homeowners. There are cases where homeowners have transferred or attempted to refinance their home and been told, much to their surprise, that they cannot because of pending legal action. This is not only egregious but morally wrong, in our view. According to state Sen. Jessie Ulibarri, D-Commerce City, SB177 differs from previous legislation in that it adds language requiring mandatory mediation and arbitration prior to filing a construction defects claim. This dispute resolution, as a way to repair or cure issues prior to initiating a lawsuit, creates a more favorable market for insurers, who cite the threat of litigation as a primary driver for the high cost of insuring owner-occupied,

While the Littleton Community Retreat is tackling the topic of the “Silver Tsunami” and the city recently opened the Aging Well Resource Center at Bemis Library, Littleton Adventist Hospital is running a campaign that reminds us that not everyone in Littleton needs a pair of Silver Sneakers. Meet Emery Grace Law, born on Dec. 12 of last year to Kerry and Renee Law. Emery is the hospital’s December poster child for Littleton Loves Little Ones, a monthly contest to help welcome newborns into the community fold. The Laws’ story is a fairly common one. Kerry and Renee grew up in Littleton, knew each other in the late 1990s at Littleton High School, and then followed their own paths right back to each other. They reconnected online, and have now been married for three years. When it was time to buy a home and start a family, their hearts led them home. After they looked at 55 houses in the area, they settled on one in the Heritage High School neighborhood, so that’s likely where little Emery will eventually go. “It’s a good place to be, with good schools and a good community,” said Renee Law. “I grew up near the High Line Canal, and there’s just something that’s very peaceful about it. I love all of the beautiful trails … and that they all converge right here is something that we really find attractive. And downtown Lit-

ways of to try to catch a scammer, Hanavan said, but a lot of the time, the scammer is calling from a spoofed number — sometimes from out-of-state or a different country. “They’re targeting anybody with a phone number,” Hanavan said. There are many different variations, the scams are ongoing and new scams are being developed every day, Hanavan said. “Scammers move on to more convenient methods,” he said. “(This is) another tool they are able to use.” Law enforcement agencies everywhere are trying to bring more awareness to the public so they do not become scam victims. “Convey this message to your loved ones,” Hanavan said. “We’re trying to prevent crime. We want to protect all of our citizens.”

tleton has matured a lot and become more of an attraction. I’m always wandering around down there now with my stroller.” She said choosing Littleton Adventist as the place to bring Emery into the world was just natural. “Obviously, I’m local,” she said. “I got stitches here when I was a little kid.” Emery surprised everyone by needing to make an entrance two weeks earlier than expected, and Renee said the nurses were godsends all the way through the process. “I was emotional when I came into the hospital,” she said. “The nurses just started talking. They just kind of talked me through it. They really helped ease my emotional agony and prepare to go into labor. That womanly chatter was what I needed to get me through it, and it was a calm, beautiful labor and birth. And the night nurses, there’s something special and soft and sweet about them. They’re like angels.” Lauren Brendel, hospital spokesperson, said that while it’s tough to choose a winner each month, the staff is having fun introducing the community to its newest members. “We thought it was a great way to share community members with each other, and to share the services we have here at Littleton Adventist Hospital,” said Brendel. “It’s getting people together to know each other in a different way.” And in the meantime, the proud parents are having a blast getting to know their new baby. “Nobody can ever prepare you for the lack of sleep, but nobody can ever prepare you for the joy of seeing your child’s face for the first time, either,” said Renee Law. “Our expectation for Emery is just for Emery to be Emery, and we will support her.” To see other babies or to enter the Littleton Loves Little Ones contest, go to www.littletonloveslittleones.com.

MORE INFORMATION The following are some tips to avoid becoming a scammer’s victim: • No law enforcement agency contacts citizens by phone, email or regular mail to request payments by wiring money, using pre-paid money cards, a money telegram or similar methods. If contacted by someone claiming to be law enforcement, hang up and call your local law enforcement agency immediately. • Visit the websites www.Grants.gov or www.Govloans.gov to find grants and loans available through the government. Don’t be fooled by other sites that have government or other official words in the title. • Be wary of any checks accompanied with a request for a MoneyPak fee payment. • Don’t use MoneyPak to pay taxes or fees such as claiming winnings on lottery or prize promotions. • Never give receipt information about a MoneyPak

purchase to another party. Refuse any offer that asks you to buy a MoneyPak and share the number or receipt information by email or phone. • Use a MoneyPak only to reload prepaid cards or accounts that you control. • To use your MoneyPak with PayPal, eBay or other online merchants, transfer the money to your PayPal account before you pay the merchant. Don’t email your MoneyPak number directly to any merchant. • Check www.moneypak.com for a list of approved MoneyPak partners before you use your MoneyPak. Unless it is an approved MoneyPak partner, don’t use MoneyPak for any offer that requires you to pay before you get the item.

multi-family housing options. Alternative dispute resolution is a legally enforceable, effective, less costly way and — just as important — a less time-consuming method of resolving disputes. We want to stress the importance of creating a workable resolution process that is fair to homeowners. One that protects their rights, which fosters conditions that will allow the building of diverse and affordable housing options, and encourages new developments near light rail and transit stations. The Colorado Business Roundtable values the importance of community — one made of not only first-time home buyers and the millennial generation that brings so much creativity and enthusiasm but also seniors, firefighters, law enforcement and great workers in manufacturing, energy, technology and health sciences. Locally, communities like Lakewood and Parker have passed ordinances to create a local remedy to encourage or spur needed development within the multi-family, owner-occupied space. While we are appreciative of their efforts and successes, this is an area where our elected leaders at the state level need to step up and ensure the passage of SB177. From the House and Senate sponsors to leadership and the rank and file dedicated servant leaders, there is broad-based bipartisan support. Please reach out to your legislator and encourage him or her to support the passage of this important economic and community-building legislation. Jeff Wasden, a Highlands Ranch resident, is president of the Colorado Business Roundtable. He can be reached at jwasden@cobrt.com.

Sertoma event celebrates freedom Young people honored for thoughtful essays By Jennifer Smith

jsmith@coloradocommunitymedia.com Who better to talk about love of freedom and country than “Herbie the Love Judge”? Former Denver County Court Judge Herbert Galchinsky is known for being a prolific wedding officiant, presiding over as many as 70 a year and more than 2,000 throughout his career. But on Feb. 17, he took some time out to preside over the 2015 Sertoma Freedom Week Awards Luncheon at Pinehurst Country Club, praising the eighth-grade essay winners for expressing themselves so articulately. “Sometimes we take freedom for granted,” he told them. “Don’t take it for granted. Work hard to preserve it. Freedom, to me, means choosing your own destiny, and these young people are off to a good start.” Twenty-seven middle-schoolers from throughout central Colorado and the Front Range, sponsored by the region’s 13 Sertoma Clubs, were invited to attend the “win-

from Euclid Middle School in Littleton netted an extra $200 each for claiming the top honors. Michael Place, of Cresthill Middle School in Highlands Ranch, was also one of the winners. “Freedom is an amazing privilege,” wrote Barnes. “It means everything from voting to standing up to what I firmly believe in. … I can practice my religious beliefs without worrying about being brutally tortured.” Barnes said she would likely use her winnings to pay for ballet classes, another passion. “I’m just really proud of all the hard work she does at school, and it’s nice for her to be recognized,” said her mom, Natalie. Dindinger, the daughter of former Centennial City Councilmember Rick Dindinger, also wrote about faith in her essay. “Freedom is when I can pray and minis-By K ter to others, or deny and ignore by choice,”Asso she wrote.

m Pot conference may be repeated

net-By Jane Reuter e topjreuter

hool f the

@coloradocommunitymedia.com

A Lone Tree Arts Center conference on the public safety impacts of marijuana was wroteso successful, a similar event likely will be ng toheld there again late this year. n. … The Colorado Association of Chiefs of Pohoutlice presented a three-day conference called .” “Marijuana Impact on Public Health and win-Safety in Colorado” in mid-January. It drew pasmore than 500 attendees from 38 states and

four countries, filling area hotels. “All indications are there’s enough interest from around the country and this one received such good response, that it’s taken off,” Lone Tree Police Chief Jeff Streeter told the city council during its Feb. 17 meeting. “We no sooner got done with this than the phones were ringing. There’s so much of this going on around the country, folks are honestly in need of it.” Discussions about a follow-up event in the fall are very preliminary, Streeter said. Lone Tree and its arts center made a uni-

versally good impression on the attendees. “This really was a benchmark for Lone Tree,” Streeter said. “We got to show off what we have to offer.” Registered participants included a large contingent from Alaska, where voters late in 2014 approved the legalization of marijuana. About 60 presenters led workshops focusing on home grow operations, concentrates and edibles, driving stoned, data collection, economic impacts and state and federal regulations, among other issues. Streeter thanked LTAC rental coordinator

Stacie Cisco and the city’s special events coordinator Lesley Johnson for pulling the conference together within a tight time frame. Despite the unusual nature of the event, councilmembers said they, too, were pleased. “When we built that building, I honestly never thought it would be used for that,” Mayor Pro Tem Jackie Millet said, laughing. Mayor Jim Gunning agreed it was a successful event, “Even though I didn’t like the title.”

Republicans move pro-fracking measure ahead of report

Cending-

inis-By Kristen Wyatt oice,”Associated Press

Republicans in Colorado’s Senate adrd atvanced a pro-fracking measure Feb. 20 that g shemakes a statement in advance of a longawaited report on new limits on the oil and eoplegas industry. prac- The Senate bill would penalize local governments that limit drilling procedures, especially hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.

When a government makes a mineral owner’s underground property less valuable, the government should pay the owner, Republicans said. “People have a right to be compensated,” said Sen. John Cooke, RGreeley. Democrats opposed the measure, which faces almost certain defeat in the Democratic House. They argued that if mineral owners are owed money for fracking bans, then surface property owners should be owed money,

too, if drilling near their homes diminishes property value. “It’s a dangerous place,” said Sen. Michael Johnston, D-Denver. Drilling has been the elephant in the room this session, with lawmakers avoiding the divisive topic until the release next week of a task force report on the dilemma. The task force was set up to broker compromise between the oil and gas industry and critics who say cities and counties should be

free to place strict limits on drilling practices. For the last few years, lawmakers have tried and failed to agree on giving local communities more say in drilling regulations. Democrats expressed optimism that the task force would bring suggestions to make both sides happy. “Hopefully, the task force will come up with something real, said Sen. Matt Jones, D-Louisville.

Five Colorado entries for the 2015 James Beard Restaurant and Chef Awards have been named semifinalists in the coveted contest. They are: • Outstanding Pastry Chef — Yasmin Lozada-Hissom.

According to the blog Culinary Colorado, she is developing products for Udi’s Granola. • Best Chef: Southwest — Alex Seidel, Fruition and Mercantile Dining & Provision; Dana Rodriguez, Work & Class and Steven Redzikowski of Oak at Fourteenth and Acorn. Rodriguez was previously executive chef at Bistro Vendome, where she was the culinary protégé of James Beard winner Jennifer Jasinski. • Outstanding Restaurant — Frasca Food and Wine. The James Beard Foundation will announce the final Restaurant and Chef Award nominees, as well as the nominations for the Book, Journalism, Broadcast Media and Restaurant Design Awards, at the James Beard House in New York City on March 24.

Press club picks honorees

Five distinguished journalists have been chosen to be inducted into the Denver Press Club Hall of Fame during the 20th Annual Denver Press Club Hall of Fame Banquet, beginning at 7 p.m. Sept.18. The class of 2015 includes photographer Rich Clarkson, political reporter (and, for my money, the best reporter in Colorado) Lynn Bartels, architecture writer Mary Chandler and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Mike Keefe. The legendary Damon Runyon, for whom the club’s Damon Runyon Award is named, is being inducted posthumously. “This is a great class of inductees, with one of the nation’s top sports photographers, a top-notch political writer, a reporter who knows everything about Denver architecture and a Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist,” said Bruce Goldberg, president of the club’s board of directors. “We look forward to a great night of nostalgia and honoring solid journalism.” The banquet will be held at the club’s landmark building at 1330 Glenarm in Denver. Seating is limited and this event is always sold out. To purchase a ticket, go to www.blacktie-colorado.com, and click on Sept. 18. Tickets cost $65 per person.

From March 4-30, art lovers will have a special opportunity to see watercolors by the state’s most skilled painters as the 24th Annual Colorado Watercolor Society State Exhibition fills the lobby and halls at Lone Tree Arts Center. Local artist/teacher Rick Brogan is juror this year, and he has selected 85 paintings from the 309 submitted. He will announce award winners at the reception, which is from 3-5 p.m. on March 7. Brogan, a Montana native and longtime Centennial resident, earned a master’s degree in painting from the University of Denver and has worked as an animator, an illustrator and an art director in the Denver area. He has been a full-time painter for more than 20 years and is represented by galleries in Denver, Taos, Evergreen and Sedona. He teaches at the Denver Art Students League and at Curtis Center for the Arts and Humanities. The Colorado Watercolor Society has grown to more than 450 members since its founding in 1954. It holds regular meetings and offers workshops with noted artists for its members. Painter Greg Chapleski of Highlands Ranch is CWS president. He has been painting full time since he retired from his work as a writer/illustrator. He is excited about the workshops the organization will be offering and the need to find a large place to hold them. “They generate higher quality work from our members,” he said.

Teams seek small victories amid big losses Lessons for both sides of blowouts in high school girls basketball By Jim Benton

jbenton @coloradocommunitymedia.com Heritage coach Steph Rogers encourages her players to ignore the scoreboard. Arvada coach Justin Carpenter uses teambuilding activities. Lopsided scores in high school basketball this season, particularly in the girls game, have presented challenges for coaches on both the winning and losing sides. It’s common to see metro-area girls games decided by 20 points or more — sometimes, a lot more. Blowout scores of 83-27, 75-8 and 52-9, just to name a few, have been recorded this season. That makes it hard for the winning coaches to have their team focus on what they have practiced and keep starters in the game. Losing coaches have to be concerned about not letting their players get embarrassed and discouraged. Rogers’ Eagles have been on both sides, notching a 43-point victory and absorbing 43- and 44-point Continental League defeats. “It’s easy to tell your team to work on different things if you’re playing a team that doesn’t have the talent that you do,” said Rogers, whose team finished the regular season 10-13, rebounding from winning a combined six games the past two years. “You stop pressing or trapping and work on the fundamentals of the game. “The other side is hard. I just try and tell my players during the game that I’m not looking at the score. I’m looking at us and Blowout continues on Page 24

The four seeded teams in the four brackets of the 48-team tourney drew byes into the second round. In the girls 5A brackets, Highlands Ranch and ThunderRidge gained top seeds while Cherry Creek and Arapahoe were No. 2 seeds. First round games in the boys tournament were played Feb. 25 with the second round scheduled for Feb. 28. In first round games involving south

Metro boys teams, Fountain Fort Carson played at Castle View, Aurora Central played at Heritage, Rocky Mountain visited Cherry Creek, Arapahoe traveled to Doherty and Highlands Ranch was at Chatfield. First-round games in the Class 5A girls tournament were played Feb. 24 with the second round set for Feb. 27. The four seeded teams in the four brackets got tickets into the second round via byes. Seven South metro girls teams had first-round games. Prairie View was at Castle View, Columbine played at Chaparral, Mountain Range was at Mountain

Second at state nothing to sweat for ThunderRidge senior Matt Stanley reaches goal; Mountain Vista sophomore nabs second By Jim Benton

ThunderRidge’s Matt Stanley knew the odds were stacked against him heading into the 195-pound championship match on Feb. 21 at the state wrestling tournament at the Pepsi Center. Stanley was pitted against unbeaten Jacob Seely from Fruita Monument in the Class 5A title match. Seely finished the season with a 42-0 record with a 16-0 technical fall decision over Stanley, the senior who compiled a 44-3 record. “I wanted to stay strong on my feet and try to work some of my attacks in,” said Stanley. “It was tough. I had nothing to lose going into that match. “I was proud of what I did. I wanted to

get second from the start of the season. I reached that goal.” Mountain Vista sophomore Trenton Schultz was the runner-up at 182 pounds, losing a close 2-1 decision to Konner Schmidt of Rocky Mountain. Schultz, who wound up with a 40-7 record, lost to Schmidt last season in the 160-pound, third-place match. Schultz was wrestling for Regis Jesuit a year ago. “I always think about what I can do better,” said Schultz. “I’ve got to be better on my feet. That is where I have to work. It’s a good way to look at things since I have two more years. “I was fourth last year and coming back to get second, I’m getting better every year. I’m happy with this state tournament.” Chaparral’s Dane Drimmer and Cherry Creek’s Matt Finesilver were two south Metro wrestlers who won championships. Drimmer, who advanced to the finals with three consecutive pins, won the 285-pound title with a 5-4 win over Pine Creek’s Taylor White. Drimmer was third and second the Wrestling continues on Page 24

SALOME’S STARS FOR THE WEEK OF FEB. 23, 2015

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) There could be some negative reaction to your tough stance when making a recent decision. But overall, your efforts result in wellearned recognition and all that can follow from that. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) Your financial situation seems confusing, even for the fiscally savvy Bovine. Maybe it’s the conflicting advice you’re getting. Check it out before things get too tangled to unknot. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) A relaxed attitude goes a long way in helping you deal with any of life’s irritants that might be popping up this week. You’re also a reassuring role model for others in the same situation.

GALLERY OF GAMES

CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) Your aspect favors creativity, which should persuade you to work on your artistic projects. If time is a problem, prioritize your commitments so that your work isn’t compromised. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) Scrutinize all the job offers that interest you. Most are honest and worth considering. But a few might not be completely forthcoming about what the job is and what the salary and benefits are. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) An unexpected snafu could delay the completion of a project you’re eager to finish. Find out what’s causing it, fix it, and if you need help, don’t be shy about asking for it. Good luck. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) An idea that could be helpful to you comes from an unlikely source. Listen to it. Discuss it. If necessary, adjust it. If it looks as if it might work out quite well, go ahead and use it. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) Be careful about allowing someone to share a very personal secret with you. This could cause problems down the line with others who are involved in that person’s private life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) A cooling down of a relationship could be the result of neglect, unintended or not. To save it from icing over, you need to warm it up with a large dose of hot Sagittarius passion. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) This is a good time to get involved with a number of family matters that involve money and other issues that might jeopardize the closeness between and among family members. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) Cheer up. That difficult person who appears to be deliberately stalling your project might just need to be reassured of the value she or he brings to it. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Good news! Expect to feel re-energized now that you’ve gone through that stressful energy-depleting period involving a lot of changes. Now, go out there and show them what you can do. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a warm, giving nature that inspires many to follow your example. © 2015 King Features Synd., Inc.

Blowout

the gap in a game that has probably already been decided with less than a quarter to play,” he said. “What does the winning team do? Allow the reserves to get pressed and taken advantage of or put starters back in to match the other team’s level of play? The other coach and parents get upset that your starters are in the game late.”

what we’re doing, our energy and our execution. Focus on small victories within the game, being positive and trying to teach them when they do something wrong.” Lutheran’s girls have one of the best Class 3A teams in the state and during one six-game stretch this season had an average winning margin of 43.8 points per game. Lions coach Mark Duitsman said he remembers not long ago when his team was on the losing side of lopsided games. “Sometimes there was nothing that either side could have done differently to decrease the margin of victory, but sometimes you couldn’t help but feel the score was being run up on you unnecessarily,” he said. “I promised myself at that time that if we ever found ourselves on the other end, if we ever became the heavily favored team, that we would always show respect to the game and our opponent.” The boys and girls state playoffs began Feb. 24. While the games should, in general, be closer, the potential for blowouts remains, at least in the first couple of rounds.

The dilemma Blowout victories gain national attention each year. Earlier this season, a girls coach in California was suspended for two games after Arroyo Valley defeated Bloomington High, 161-2. The Colorado High School Activities Association has not adopted a mercy rule for basketball, but leagues have been encouraged to address the issue. “So many of our coaches understand the value of high school competition,” said CHSAA assistant commissioner Bert Borg-

past two seasons. Finesilver defeated Pomona’s Jason Romero, 11-2, to win the 132-pound title. Ponderosa’s Hunter Matney lost a 3-2 decision in the 106-pound championship match to Dayton Marvel of Pomona.

Learning lessons, having fun

mann. “They are not looking to humiliate anybody, they are not looking to send a message by running up the score. The vast majority of coaches have empathy because they have been on both sides of these kinds of scores and they know how to address and how to develop game plans when they may be playing a foe that is overmatched by their team. They are teaching great lessons when they are doing it that way.” But trying to manage the margin isn’t easy. “You work so hard to make things automatic for your players, then you have to suddenly tell them to not play that way,” Duitsman said. “It’s easier said than done.

What often gets lost in this discussion is the lack of playing time for our top rotation. Our starters have spent most of the second half of the games on the bench this semester.” Castle View girls coach Matt Hema can speak from both the winning and losing side. When his team is winning by a large margin, like 25 points or more, he’ll have the players call off the press on defense. And his starters and top reserves will generally play only three quarters of a blowout. “Where gamesmanship and sportsmanship come into conflict is when coaches that are down see an opportunity to press the other team’s reserves in order to close

Carpenter is athletic director in addition to being Arvada’s girls basketball coach. His young team won only three games this season, losing by an average of 30.5 points a game. “We have been trying to place importance on the smaller, more measurable things as opposed to the games themselves,” Carpenter said. “Things like holding the other team’s leading scorer to below her average and scoring every quarter. When we played at Valor Christian we stopped on the way home as a team and had Chick-fil-A and ice cream sundaes. Incorporating team-building activities like that has helped.” Rock Canyon has been on the winning and losing ends of blowouts a few times this season. Junior Jaguar Sydney Smith said the big losses serve as motivation. “It just made us come back to practice and work harder,” she said after a 21-point loss to Highlands Ranch on Feb. 19. Learning to be a good winner is important, too. “Once we get up by about 15, we’ll start subbing the bench and then when we get up by about 20, most of my starters won’t play anymore,” said Chris Cureen, coach of the Cherry Creek girls team. “We can do little things, like we have to have so many passes before you can shoot the ball and you have to play a certain defense. There are ways you can play the game without it getting completely out of whack.”

Cherry Creek’s Josh Finesilver, Matt’s twin brother, won the Class 5A, 106-pound third place match with a 9-0 decision over Dylan Martinez of Grand Junction. Josh Finesilver lost 13-4 to Matney in the semifinals. Douglas County senior Robert Gambrell was the 160-pound runner-up. Gambrell, 43-9, lost 12-4 to Grand Junction’s unbeaten senior Jacob Trujillo. Legend’s 126-pounder Adam Aguilar was fourth, losing 4-3 to Rocky Nava

of Northglenn. John Daniel of Arapahoe dropped a 6-2 decision to Jess Hankin of Coronado in the 132-pound third place match. Ponderosa’s Tyler Turco was third at 160 pounds after a 5-1 win over Liberty’s Josh Burns. The Mustangs’ 170-pounder Tanner Olson defeated Douglas County’s Luke Engler, 10-4, to capture fifth place. A.J. Curtis, Cherry Creek’s 145-pounder, took fifth place with a 4-1 decision over Grandview’s Seth Brown while

Chaparral’s Dawson Cranmer defeated Heritage’s Jared Todd, 4-3, to place fifth at 152 pounds. Castle View senior Bevan Haycock finished sixth at 160 pounds. He lost 5-3 to Patrick Romero of Mountain Range in the fifth place consolation match. In the Class 5A team standings, Creek finished seventh with 54 points. Chaparral was eighth with 52.5 points and finished just ahead of Ponderosa who was ninth with 52 points.
