Convoy brings stranded students home Youths from Pine Grove Elementary were stuck in Estes Park amid flooding By Virginia Grantier

vgrantier@ourcoloradonews.com If someone wondered about a caravan of 15 white Chevy Suburbans, two small buses and a service truck, led by a Douglas County sheriff’s car, leaving the Parker area the afternoon of Sept. 13 — it was just a school principal and school district personnel trying to get their kids back. And they did it. Eighty-seven Pine Grove Elementary School sixth-graders and six adults were supposed to come home Sept. 12 from a 2½-day outdoor education experience at the Estes Park YMCA. But midweek the weather changed, the rains started — and eventually the power went out, and the en-

trance to the camp was flooding, the camp’s bridge was being compromised, and the couple-mile mountain road to the camp was in danger of being washed out. Molly Gnaegy, the school’s principal, and district personnel determined the kids needed to stay up there an extra night, and then on Sept. 13, after making a plan, the decision was made to seize the moment. There was a small window of clear weather and the National Park Service was going to let them travel the only way in — Trail Ridge Road, which was closed to the public so it could used as an emergency access just for situations like theirs. “It was a little risky,” Gnaegy said. But if they didn’t get the kids out that day, there was the possibility with colder weather in the mountains on Sept. 15 that there could be snow conditions on Trail Ridge Road — and then what, they thought.

Gun-rights supporters make point Two recall elections show which side had more passion By Vic Vela

Water treatment plant taking shape Facility near reservoir to be operational by early 2015 By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Motorists driving along the western extension of Hess Road have likely noticed a flurry of construction activity near Rueter-Hess Reservoir. The Parker Water and Sanitation District is one year into construction of a $50 million water treatment plant that’s expected to open in the first part of 2015. Beginning in August 2012, crews installed pipelines and other infrastructure and heavily graded the land. Now, they are finishing the foundation, reinforcing the structure with rebar and putting in place key components to the treatment process. By November, passersby will see masonry work and a steel frame over the plant. The finished product will occupy nearly an acre of land and contain some of the most high-tech filtration equipment in the world. Representatives from the Parker Water and Sanitation District have traveled to Japan and France to view state-of-the-art systems in operation. The district has honed in on what it believes are the most efficient active-flow processes, backwash cycles and chemical processes, among many other steps in the quest to produce potable water.

Doug Voss, right, project superintendent for Weaver General Construction, talks about the water treatment plant being built off Hess Road near Rueter-Hess Reservoir on Sept. 5. “There’s a tremendous amount of chemistry involved,” said James Roche, operations manager for the PWSD. Six ceramic membrane filters — at a cost of $1.2 million each — were shipped in from Japan and sit guarded under a wooden frame and heavy-duty shrink wrap. The rest of the building must be constructed around them. The components are costly, but durable, and there

is intent to spend the necessary money now so the plant is well prepared for the long haul. It will eventually have the capacity to churn out 40 million gallons of water per day to meet peak summer demands. Building to spec is a must with such

The message that was sent by Pueblo and Colorado Springs voters who turned out to defeat two Democratic state lawmakers in separate recall elections was clear: Don’t mess with our guns. There’s no question which side of the gun-control debate was more energized when the votes were cast Sept. 10. The day marked the defeats of Senate President John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron, in historic recall elections that were spurred by their votes on bills aimed at tougher guncontrol laws. “I think we simply did not realize the extent to which those who support less firearm regulation... were motivated to get to the polls,” said Bob Loevy, a political scientist at Colorado College. “Those who opposed less firearm regulation felt more strongly than those seeking more firearm regulation.” Morse, of Colorado Springs, lost his Senate District 11 seat by 255 votes, in an election that drew about 18,000 voters. Morse’s race was close; Giron’s wasn’t. The Pueblo lawmaker lost by more than 4,000 votes, from more than 34,000 that were cast in the Senate District 3 election. “Giron being recalled in a safe Democratic seat — I’ll say the word, shocking,” said Loevy. “I think the size of her defeat and the fact that the president of the Colorado Senate — somebody who has served in that body for seven years, who is widely respected in the state — sends a powerful message.” State Rep. Chris Holbert, R-Parker, said Morse has only himself to blame for the election loss, for insisting on pursuing “citizen-control” gun bills. Gun continues on Page 16

Have a seat and meet the neighbors Soon after Kelli and Mark Kolar moved into their two-story home on Hughes Place 18 years ago, The Bench became part of a purposeful plan: to make a gathering place. “Everybody was always outside,” Kelli remembers, “and it was a place where you could sit and relax and watch the kids and catch up with your neighbors.” They bought a bench made of teak, a sturdy but beautiful wood known for its ability to endure all kinds of weather. At the front of the yard, to the right of the driveway and next to the sidewalk, Mark attached it to cinder blocks buried in the ground, so pranksters couldn’t run away with it some night. They planted a pine tree behind it and bushes on each side. “One of the intentions of The Bench,” Kelli says, “was that anyone could go and use it.” And we did. For years, the children would play in the cul-de-sac and we parents would huddle around The Bench. And talk. And

laugh. And share the kinds of stories that forged neighbors into friends and a street into a community. Then the children grew and lives became busier and divergent interests pulled us in different directions. The street became quieter. And so did camaraderie at The Bench. Over the years, several of the original families moved, including the Kolars. New families — some with younger children — replaced them. They became friends, chatting outside as their kids played. But the magical draw of The Bench faded with the teak.

SO MUCH INSIDE THE CHRONICLE THIS WEEK

In 2010, Rachel and Matt Keillor became the third family to live in the Kolar house. California transplants originally from the Midwest, they came with their daughter, Natalie, then 3, and their 2½-month-old son, Andrew. And then, as so often happens, an ordinary life event occurs that somehow starts a chain reaction that leads to something special. In this case: Andrew turned 2 and began to scooter. Natalie, now 6, wanted to ride her bike all the time. Rachel, a stay-at-home mom, knowing she’d be spending much of her time outside this past summer, looked to The Bench. She and Matt decided to refinish it. One weekend in May, Matt tried to move The Bench to the garage to sand it down and repaint it. That’s when he discovered the cinder blocks. And that’s when the neighbors rediscovered The Bench. Matt: “That weekend that we refinished it …” Rachel: “Every neighbor came over and talked to us.” They said: “Oh, we used to sit out here all the time.” And shared such learned wisdom as: “Seize the day. Time goes by so quickly. Enjoy the moments with your kids; soon they’ll be going off to Boulder.” And a host of tips and tricks on landscaping and weeding. And the history of the street. “It did help us to get to know the stories of our neighbors,” Rachel says, smiling, “and the people who lived in our house.” When The Bench had its new coat, Rachel added two burnt orange cushions she’d bought for a couple of dollars at a garage sale. Adrienne Miner, who moved into the cul-de-sac with her family 10 years ago, was glad to see the fresh look. She’d often wondered about The Bench. “I’ve looked at it and contemplated it over the years,” says Adrienne, who has two young sons. “I was happy to see when Rachel and Matt painted it and put some

pillows on it and made it look more inviting and not so lonely and desolate. … It made it look as important as it probably is.” Any afternoon or evening this summer, more often than not, would find Rachel — or Rachel and Matt — on The Bench watching Natalie and Andrew play. Little by little, as other children would filter into the cul-de-sac, their parents and some of us old-timers, too, would come, gravitating toward The Bench, sitting on the sidewalk or standing nearby. “When it has one person out there,” Adrienne says of The Bench, “it tends to collect other people.” The conversations are busy — about the children and their challenges and successes. School. Home improvements. Work. Life. “Just catching up,” Adrienne says, “and connecting.” Even the children have bonded with The Bench. The neighborhood girls, lately into trading rocks, store their favorites in the nook under the seat. It’s become their trading post. Kelli recently drove down the old street and happily noticed the rejuvenated bench. “It’s kind of like handing down a favorite piece of furniture,” she says. “You never know what’s going to happen. But 18 years later, it’s still being used for what we put it out there for … It’s great.” Already, the hint of cooler weather is slowing down life at The Bench. Soon, Rachel will take in the pillows so they look good for next year. And I will glance out the window to see who’s there, to find it, sadly, empty. But this time, it will only be for a little while. The Bench and its magic, I think, will be back next year.

e Think tank helps fund school-board backers Money comes into play as election approaches By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com

DougCo Champions for Kids, a proDouglas County School Board community group, is getting financial help from the high-profile Independence Institute think tank in the lead-up to the November elections. DougCo Champions for Kids describes itself as “a group of parents, educators, business people, and taxpayers who want to share the news about what’s really going on in DougCo K-12 education.” The conservative Independence Institute “agreed to help us cover some minor expenses,” said Franceen Thompson, a volress unteer with the group. DougCo Champions for Kids is regisd tered with the Colorado Secretary of State as an unincorporated nonprofit association. Its registered agent is Mike Krause, the offi-Independence Institute’s vice president of s in aoperations. “I’m the registered agent (but) I’ve had very little to do with the operations,” Krause Cory nts asaid in late August, and then said he would andask the staff member who “runs DougCo “WeChamps for Kids” to call Colorado Compeak,munity Media to answer specific questions. manyThe call was not returned. The Denver-based Independence Institute is a libertarian think tank currently rallying against the state’s gun-control laws. It also promotes educational vouchers and charter schools. In April 2013, it conducted a phone survey on DCSD issues that some recipients characterized as slanted in fa-

vor of the district and against the teachers’ union. Thompson, also a district captain with the Douglas County Republicans, at first said she didn’t know the details about DougCo Champions’ funding, but later acknowledged the connection to the Independence Institute. Thompson has not responded to a follow-up request for clarification.

‘Champs’ grateful for help

Thompson said some community members who support the current board’s reform policies became concerned last February about the distribution of fliers “spreading misinformation about what was happening in the school district.” “We did not have the funds to compete and decided to reach out (to) other organizations that might be willing to help our grassroots effort and counter the misinformation … regarding our school district and the reforms our district put into place,” Thompson wrote in an email. “We reached out to the Independence Institute and asked if they would be willing to help us out. We are grateful to the Independence Institute for helping to organize a grassroots effort to get our message to the community.” Thompson, who supports DCSD’s voucher and new pay-for-performance programs, said she is not paid for her time. “I put in a ton of hours,” she said. “That tells you how much I believe in what this organization is doing. I don’t care where the funding comes from.” DougCo Champions has hosted community forums at which current board members have attempted to address community concerns. The organization’s name is on pro-board fliers recently distributed at school events, including a Sept. 6 football

game at Douglas County Stadium in Castle Rock. School board vice president Kevin Larsen said DougCo Champions is not affiliated with the board or district. “The district has to stay out of the political race,” he said. “Whatever any of those other advocacy groups are doing, they’re doing on their own accord.” Larsen said he and board member Meghann Silverthorn appeared by invitation at a DougCo Champions community meeting. “Our showing up at any of those events is simply through accepting an invitation to engage,” he said. “If Taxpayers for Public Education had invited us to be at an event where they wanted to meet the board and ask questions, we would go. We’ve never received any such invitation.” Taxpayers for Public Education is a plaintiff in a lawsuit against DCSD’s voucher program.

Campaign manager identifies self

Additionally, Monument-based political consultant Chad Yelinski has identified himself on LinkedIn as a campaign manager for DougCo Champions starting in May 2013. He also lists “Douglas County School Board campaign” as a project that includes coordinating “grassroots effort to help educate citizens in Douglas County on the key issues going on for school reform. Paving the way for advocacy and education.” Yelinski, who did not respond to multiple attempts to speak with him, describes his role with the DougCo Champions’ campaign on his LinkedIn profile as “gathering data through the use of a precise grassroots strategy to reach a very target group of voters,” working to organize and educate Douglas County citizen groups, building a

volunteer base and writing a development plan. Yelinski’s LinkedIn profile, on the morning of Sept. 12, said he was working as a “political operative” for a company he lists as C3 Political Consulting LLC, where he “organized events and grassroots for DougCo Champs 4 Kids.” Yelinski recently moved to Washington, D.C., for an internship with the Heritage Foundation, a think tank whose mission is “to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.” The LinkedIn profile was changed on the afternoon of Sept. 12 after the Heritage Foundation was contacted by Colorado Community Media to verify Yelinski’s activities. The post of “political operative” working with DougCo Champions for Kids, which had been listed as a current job along with his Heritage Foundation internship, was changed to a past job. His “campaign manager” description, which had been listed as continuing into September, has been revised to indicate that it also has come to an end. Yelinski’s other work experience includes a paid internship with EIS Solutions. That company was a 2011 campaign consultant for Douglas County Citizens for Education Reform, which supported two ultimately unsuccessful school district tax-hike proposals. He also served a 2012 internship with the Starboard Group, which helped coordinate a June 2013 Douglas County Educational Foundation luncheon that drew protesters questioning Starboard’s work with conservative political candidates and groups.

Trustees sought for library district

CRIME REPORT Teens cited for roof climb

Shortly before 10 p.m. Sept. 3, Parker police officers responded to the Parker Arts, Culture and Events Center on a report of two people on the roof. A 19-year-old male and 18-year-old female were contacted in the parking lot and admitted to being on the roof of the building to see the view. Both were cited and released on summons.

Trucker gets trip to jail

Around 9:50 a.m. Sept. 4, a 40-year-old man entered a commercial motor vehicle inspections checkpoint at Lincoln Avenue and Ponderosa Drive. During the checkpoint it was determined the man had two active warrants and was driving with a revoked license. He was placed under arrest and transported to the Arapahoe County jail.

Driver’s window shot out

After 3 p.m. Sept. 5, officers responded to Jordan Road and Sandreed Circle to a possible criminal mischief. The reporting party said he was driving northbound on Jordan Road approaching the intersection with Sandreed Circle when his driver’s-side

window was shot out with what he believed to be a BB. There were no suspects at the time the report was taken.

Thief enters unlocked cars The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office responded around 4 a.m. Sept. 9 to the 9800 block of Hedgeway Court on a reported burglary. A woman said she left her garage door partly open the previous night because it was hot outside. She left her two vehicles in her garage unlocked. At 3:45 a.m., she went into her garage to leave for work and noticed the light was on in the garage and the garage door was open. She looked inside her cars and noticed someone had gone through the cars and items that were in her glovebox were on her seat. She noticed that $2 to $3 was taken out of one car and about six to eight CDs were taken out of the other. She remembers looking out her window when she was getting ready for work and seeing a lightcolored, four-door sedan leaving the area. She did not know if the sedan belongs to a neighbor or if it was involved in any way. The case was deactivated due to a lack of suspects.

Three Douglas high schools on ‘best’ list Highlands Ranch, Mountain Vista, Rock Canyon noted by 5280 By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Three Douglas County School District high schools appear on 5280 magazine’s list of best Front Range public high schools. Highlands Ranch, Mountain Vista and Rock Canyon high schools made The Dean’s List, which based the rankings on data included in the Colorado Growth Model. Evaluations were based on each school’s proficiency in math, reading and writing, and how well it helps its students meet or exceed expected skill levels. 5280 didn’t rank the 23 schools, but listed them in alphabetical order with corresponding data in its September edition. “I’m proud but not surprised,” said Dan McMinimee, DCSD’s assistant superintendent of secondary education. “It’s nice to be named on these lists, but we know all of our high schools do a great job. I’m proud of the performance at every one of our schools.” 5280 touted Highlands Ranch for its “award-winning yearbook and newspaper

programs to robust performance and fine arts offerings to athletics” and a Post Graduate Center “dedicated to helping seniors through the college application process …” Mountain Vista was singled out for the fact that “more than 60 percent of teachers boast a master’s degree or higher,” according to 5280. The magazine also noted its acclaimed theater program, and successful traditional and unified athletics programs. Rock Canyon earned praise for the 85-percent-plus student participation rate in clubs and sports and challenging coursework. “The school sends nearly 90 percent of graduates on to college and has received recognition at the state and national level for community service projects,” according to 5280. Some of the other Front Range high schools on 5280’s 2013 list include Arapahoe, Cherry Creek, Conifer, East, Jefferson Charter Academy and Monarch. Published as the 20 best high schools in the Front Range, 5280 edited the online version of the article to add the three Douglas County schools. They called the omission a regrettable oversight. “Three DCSD schools more than met the criteria for inclusion on our list of Denver metro’s top public high schools and join the list here,” the online version reads.

opinions / yours and ours

Planning, packing pivotal to preparedness Fire is far from our minds with last week’s rains. But we just left a summer with the worst fire in Colorado history. The Black Forest Fire took down nearly 500 homes, and the state required federal disaster aid. At the same time, the state was dotted with lesser blazes, including the Lime Gulch and Royal Gorge fires. The number of evacuations was dwarfed by the news of the number of homes lost, but it was a big hurt to many other people, their health, pets and livelihoods. And now — after what had been a relatively calm start to the month — we suddenly experience flooding and rainfall enough to have caused several deaths. So

our view it’s not difficult to be mindful of Emergency Preparedness Month in September — the FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) initiative started in 2004 that involves a few simple projects. First develop an emergency plan. It’s easy. • Decide a group meeting place in case of emergency or disaster. Choose one near home and one farther away. • Identify an emergency contact person

and assign responsibilities to each family or group member. • Make some decisions about where your family should go if forced to leave the area. And make plans for the pets. Second, assemble the supplies you will need. And group everything together in a kit. Here’s a recommended list from FEMA. • Battery powered or crank radio • Weather alert radio • Extra batteries • First aid kit • Sanitary napkins • Dust mask • Water for drinking and sanitation • Water purification tablets

• Waterproof matches and a butane lighter • Crank flashlight • Plastic sheeting • Non-perishable food for at least three days • Disinfectants and medications • Medical information for entire family, including instructions about medications and health history information. We never know when Mother Nature or a man-made disaster will make us all shake in our boots. So it’s not a bad idea to go through the steps of being prepared for disaster. We hope the exercise simply amounts to an educational experience. On to fall and winter.

How time flies … What’s your favorite or slows, or reverses thing about fall? question of the week

As summer officially ends and fall begins, we asked several people in the Highlands Ranch Town Center what they like best about the season.

“The weather, the clothes, the heartier, more savory food, Thanksgiving, rain and snow. And then of course, the leaves changing color.” — Kaitlin Clark, Denver

“Football and Thanksgiving.” — Thiago Harvey, Denver

“The leaves changing. But football first.” — Kenneth Harvey, Denver

“Cooler weather and the changing of the leaves. But the snow can stay in the mountains.” — Jackie Walsh, Highlands Ranch

letters to the editor Forum blatantly one-sided

In response to “Despite candidate conflicts, DCSD forum is a go”: Despite his position as the Douglas County GOP District Captain, David DiCarlo could at least attempt to appear impartial in his role as Douglas County School District Accountability Committee chairman. In the video of the Aug. 13 DAC meeting, Mr. DiCarlo said of his efforts to reach possible school board candidates about a candidate forum, “I just started today, so I’ve reached out to six. As I hear back, I’ll email the rest of the DAC with potential dates, potential places.” Surely if Mr. DiCarlo was able to contact six potential candidates in one day, he could have found the time to contact the other six that were registered at that date, sometime in the next day or two. Instead, he waited three weeks, until Sept. 2, to inform the other candidates of a set date, with no similar opportunity to weigh in on “potential dates, potential places.” I must question Mr. DiCarlo’s integrity when he then states, “all candidates were given the exact same notice.” Furthermore, his excuse of “availability of the venue” is simply ludicrous as there were only eight days in September and October that the Douglas County High School auditorium was booked as of Sept. 9. Conveniently, the candidates he contacted on Sept. 2 just happen to be those he opposes, while the GOP-endorsed candidates remarkably could attend. This is a blatant attempt to provide a one-sided forum for the candidates supported by Mr. DiCarlo, and it is a flagrant misuse of his authority as DAC chair. I encourage all citizens of Douglas County to put an end to these forms of deliberate, calculated, and unethical behaviors within our school district by voting for Barbra Chase, Bill Hodges, Julie Keim and Ronda Scholting in the upcoming Board of

Education election. Meg Masten Highlands Ranch

Claims about schools are rubbish

Regarding the Rev. Frank R. Morris’ guest column of Sept. 5: Rubbish. The existing board runs the school district according to capitalistic theory? Rubbish. If so then when do I get a dividend in the form of reduced taxes? The board runs it according to Dr. Friedman’s economic theories? Rubbish. If so, where are the universal vouchers? As a result teachers are no longer respected professionals and ... become classroom supervisors? Rubbish. Supervisors aren’t respected professionals? Teachers are no longer professionals or is it they are no longer respected? One can’t tell from your sentence. Of course neither is true as anyone who watches board and teacher interaction can easily tell. Or spent any time talking to or listening to board members (Disagreeing is not disrespect.) In the business world one does not allow non-business people to tell them how to manage? Rubbish. I am hard-pressed to identify any segment of society that is more open to input regardless of source. Think about it, the business world welcomes input from academia, from the consumer, from regulators, from philosophy, from theology, and, in the United States at least, from foreign cultures. This school board is replacing a mid20th-century educational model with one that puts the consumer in charge by allowing the parent to choose between a traditional model, a charter school model, a private school model, an online model and a home school model. That is true reform and an increase in individual liberty. Michael Wallace Highlands Ranch

I have attended football games all over the place. Lincoln, Norman, Ann Arbor, Pasadena, Berkeley, Palo Alto, Tempe. None of them ended in slow motion. I have attended Major League Baseball games in at least five states, and none of the games ended in slow motion. But every time I watch a football or baseball movie, it ends in slow motion. Is it a requisite? “Must end in slow motion.” Maybe the director has to stretch the movie out because it didn’t take up enough time. That must be it. He’s got 10 minutes to go, and he doesn’t have 10 minutes worth of action and dialogue. I know better about slow motion. It is used to add drama to drama. I don’t think I have ever seen a football or baseball movie end in real time. Or basketball. Have you seen “Hoosiers”? Jimmy Chitwood goes up ... up ... up. It takes 20 seconds and there are only three seconds left in the game. Directors can manipulate time all over the place. There are flashbacks and flashforwards. Some movies have both, so you have to pay attention. “Back to the Future” starts in 1985, goes back to 1955, and returns to 1985, after Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) tinkers with events. I like Fox. He is going to star in a new television series. He’s an inspiration. There is film that was famously shot in nearly real time. It’s “High Noon,” starring Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly. I look at clocks in movies. Most of the time they don’t change during a scene. In “High Noon,” clocks are shown throughout the

Parker Chronicle

movie, and they are all ticking down the minutes until the bad guy, Frank Miller, gets off the train and comes gunning for Will Kane (Cooper). It takes place in Hadleyville, in the New Mexico Territory. The film is #27 on the American Film Institute’s list of great films. Some movies start way in the past. They are called period films. I am not crazy about period films, like “Pride and Prejudice.” Mr. Darcy doesn’t do much for me. Most period films are humorless. There has to be a little humor, doesn’t there? Not always. There weren’t a lot of oneliners in “Schlinder’s List.” A film came out in 1968 that was set in 2001, “A Space Odyssey,” and it seemed very futuristic. We hadn’t even been to the moon yet. Now 2001 has come and gone. Sometimes time plays tricks on us. It takes forever to wait 15 minutes in line at the pharmacy or on hold on the phone, but 15 minutes goes by much too fast when you are with the one you love.

An overview of world markets in motion Different economic factors drive different results in different countries. However, we are the same in that we share one globe. August market returns worldwide are a good example of how certain countries produced diverse results. However the global nature of current affairs was the common denominator producing significant volatility for investors. August marked the usual late summer lull that often follows the more exiting July earnings season. Many investors vacation late in summer and the low trading volume is often blamed for a downward drifting stock market this time of year. September is often a volatile month and this year the fall outlook has cast an ominous shadow over the markets. The anticipation of dealing with the federal deficit, the new Affordable Health Care Act, another possible round of sequestration and a possible new Federal Reserve chairman would each be good reasons for uncertainty. On top of these issues we also must deal with China balancing between cooling down growth without stalling the economy; the conflict in Syria; and Europe com-

ing out of recession. While there is a lot going on that is country specific, the domino triggers are also in effect where news from halfway around the globe impacts our investments. Here is an overview of the world markets at the end of August: The United States became infatuated with when the Federal Reserve Board would begin to taper their bond buying program. This set the stage for rising bond yields which put pressure on both bond and stock prices pushing U.S. markets down 3 percent¹. The news of chemical weapons used in Syria created more uncertainty. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell below 15,000 again in August, which seems to be an emotional level for many domestic investors.

Europe announced the 17-nation euro zone has emerged from recession. However, this news was tempered with investor concerns about potential strikes on Syria, which pushed stocks down for Europe as well. Asia Pacific nations also had varying degrees of declines. Japan fell 2 percent on a lower-than-expected growth outlook and pending sales tax increase designed to help lower their massive fiscal deficit. This in turn could dampen economic growth. Australian stocks were up slightly despite the lower economic outlook largely due to high unemployment. Emerging markets as a whole also fell 2 percent last month despite variable economic data in specific countries. China had a slight increase as their manufacturing index expanded for the first time in four months. South Korea also showed an increase helped by rising exports. The rest of the emerging markets remain troubled with large deficits, high inflation and declining currencies. This includes India, Indonesia, Brazil, Turkey and Mexico. Russia reduced their growth forecast pushing stocks modestly lower.

This research indicates that investors may experience increased volatility stemming from foreign or domestic issues: Some specific to each country’s economic situation and some due to the global contagion. While foreign investing often provides good diversification, it may be impossible to determine where all the risks are. Therefore keep your strategy current with your advisor to monitor opportunities and the concerns that come with them. Now that we are on a global market, it will be difficult to see all the factors necessary to make investment decisions without qualified advice. 1.

Short-term thinking blurs big-picture vision The need for instant gratification has truly compromised our ability to see beyond what is immediately in front of us. I mean in some cases we can’t even see the next three hours that are directly in front of us let alone three weeks, three months, or three years down the road. We want something and we want it now. I do agree that part of this insatiable need for speed when it comes to our wants and desires has been shaped by technology and the fact that we can access information with one or two clicks on our computer, tablet, and smart phone. But I also believe as a society we have developed a perceived need to keep up with our neighbors, family members, and our competitors when it comes to business. We want what they have and we want it now. You see, short-term thinkers limit themselves to what they can have or achieve today instead of seeing the much bigger potential of tomorrow. And whether tomorrow comes in a day, in a month, or over several years … tomorrow will eventually come. And if we live only for the things we can have at our fingertips in this moment, we forgo the opportunity to enjoy the rewards that come by careful planning, temporary sacrifices, saving, being patient, and willing to earn and wait for the things that will provide enjoyment and security in the future. Near-term thinking or seeking is driven by an attitude of impatience. Big-picture visioning and pursuing is driven by a goals-oriented and resultsfocused attitude.

time happened in a cartoon series: “Peabody’s Improbable History,” which starred Mr. Peabody and a precocious boy named Sherman. It was featured on the “Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.” During every episode, Peabody and Sherman would get in the WABAC (pronounced “way-back”) machine and timetravel, to discover how an important event in history actually happened. You had to be a sharp cookie to watch “Rocky and Bullwinkle.” It was full of clever references and wordplay. Another one of my favorite time-travel films was based on a Mark Twain book,

tonight. The unemployed person will stop sending resumes and applying for the position they truly want because they were not offered a job today. The person seeking to lose weight or improve their physical fitness will avoid the gym because the pounds are coming off too slowly or their endurance or strength is not improving rapidly enough. There are countless scenarios where the shortcut and partial success are rationalized by the acceptance of fractional achievement of what we really desire. Our choice to accept the “almost-win” always seems easier at first, but ultimately leads to a life filled with “woulda,” “shoulda,” “coulda” thoughts and regrets. Of course there are activities and tasks that require short-term thinking and immediate actions. However, when we allow everything we do to be driven by the near term, it is so easy to lose sight of the big picture. So what do we do about this instant gratification epidemic? The first thing we need to do is to adopt an attitude of patience and big-picture visioning. The second thing we need to do is to identify our goals. And as a best practice, categorize each goal into one of three buckets: near term, mid-range, and longterm. “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.” The 1949 version that starred Bing Crosby is the best. Hank Morgan (Crosby), a 19th-century resident of Hartford, Conn., suffers a blow to the head, and winds up in the sixth century, where he is perceived to be a magician because he has a book of matches. Suffering a blow to the head, dreaming, or fainting are the easiest ways for the scriptwriter to time-travel his characters. I time-travel just about every night. I dream about my father, and it is very vivid and real. But it never is. It’s time to wrap this up. Craig Marshall Smith is an artist, educator and Highlands Ranch resident.

The first time that we go through this exercise we will probably notice that one of the buckets is filled with more goals than the other two. This is a good thing, as it will bring awareness to where our current focus lies. The next step is to go back and make sure that there is some level of distribution in all three buckets. Once we have taken the time to identify and prioritize our goals into these categories, we will begin to see and internally own the roadmap for our personal success. This is easier than we think; it only requires some time and thoughtful consideration to get started. And there is no time

like the present to get started. How about you, is it about instant gratification or are you willing to put in the time, hard work, patience and sacrifice necessary to realize your goals and dreams? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com, because when we get our heads and hearts around what our long-term future can possibly be, it really will be a better than good week.

Aspen View Academy classes begin By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Fifth-grader Ella Stasiak tugged at her pale blue Aspen View Academy blouse. “It’s just kinda scratchy,” she said. Her friend and neighbor, third-grader Carter Shelton, fiddled with the ends of his blue tie. “I think it’s better to wear uniforms,” he said. “It’s not that hard to get dressed every morning.” Stasiak and Shelton were among 650 uniformed students reporting for their first day of school at Aspen View Academy, Douglas County’s newest school; 200 more students are on a waiting list. That’s an irony for the school’s founder, Jonathan Nye, who was inspired to build Aspen View by years-long waiting lists he found at other Douglas County charter schools. On Sept. 3, his three children were among the hundreds who flowed through the doors for the first time. “I’m elated,” said Nye, a software salesman. “It was really a grassroots movement. We set up a table at the local King Soopers and started passing out fliers. First there were two of us, then 10 people, then 50.” The two-story K-6 charter, eventually designed to serve K-8 students, is in Castle Rock’s Meadows neighborhood. In a unique partnership, the Douglas County School

District helped Aspen View secure financing for the school. In exchange, Aspen View accepted some of the children who otherwise would attend overflowing neighborhood schools in the high-growth area. “This school saved two schools in the Meadows from going to four-track (a form of year-round school),” said Nye. Instead, about 65 percent of Aspen View’s students hail from the Meadows, with another 25-30 percent from elsewhere in Castle Rock. “I don’t know that we’re different,” Nye said. “We just offer a choice for parents. But we’re still a district school. “We’re core knowledge with an emphasis on math, technology and language arts. We’re a big believer in culture and core values.” Students also will be taught Latin, and placed in groupings that allow them to learn according to their abilities. Another differentiator: The uniforms. On opening day, girls wore blue plaid skirts and pale blue blouses embroidered with the Aspen View Academy name and logo. Boys wore gray pants with pale blue button-down Aspen View shirts; many wore blue plaid ties that matched the girls’ skirts. It’s a new way of dressing not just for most of the students, but for their parents. “The uniforms are a new thing,” said parent Karen McConnell, whose oldest son

It sounds great, but I guess we’ll see how it goes.” She was unreservedly excited, however, about the new school. Clear Sky “was getting crowded with all the new housing,” McConnell said. “I like the ability-based grouping they offer here.” Staff members shared a similar sense of

n Sheriff’s office gets new bomb robot Federal grant pays for Dragon Runner By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office recently upgraded its resources with the addition of a Dragon Runner bomb robot. The robot, pack and remote included, weighs just 75 pounds, much smaller than its 500-pound predecessor, allowing it to get into harder-to-reach places as it keeps officers out of harm’s way while the bomb squad is deployed. Purchased for $110,397, the robot — designed by the Marine Corps for use in Afghanistan and Iraq — was fully funded by a grant from the Department of Homeland Security. The appropriation of the grant money was approved by the county comhe missioners July 30 and the robot arrived in Castle Rock in early August. So far, officers have been thrilled at its chercapabilities. “It’s lightweight and portable and hooks d As-right on the backpack,” said Lt. Tommy Barn therella. “We needed a small platform robot that we could deploy quickly. We can carry ct. ...it with us into a school or neighborhood. ermsYou can’t do that with the big robot.”

The big robot, which the department is keeping to conduct heavier, more timeconsuming work, is used mainly for bomb disposal, Barrella said. However, it is clumsy and can’t climb steep terrain or stairs, and if something breaks on it, it takes at least a half a day just to take the robot apart. The new robot requires just five minutes to take apart, but perhaps more importantly in a SWAT situation, can approach a house within minutes while the officers keep their distance and can be stationed in their command van. “It goes over everything that is put in its way,” Barrella said. “It’s a good set of eyes for us, and instead of climbing a hill with the van and entering plain sight with the big robot, this one can climb the hill itself or in a backpack with an officer.” With the ability to operate remotely from up to a mile away, the robot transmits images back to its operators on a display screen located on the remote and can detect motion from up to 30 feet away. It also has the ability to detect and disrupt suspicious devices or disable them with wire cutters. “The ultimate (purpose) is taking the human element out of a dangerous situation,” Barrella said, adding that he expects the county to use it on 50 to 75 calls a year. Because the county obtained the robot through a federal grant, it must be shared

ner include Elbert and Lincoln counties, while it will serve as a backup for Arapahoe and Jefferson counties as well as Colorado Springs if they need a robot on call.

School board member says work remains Benevento wants focus on finances, educational options By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Disagreements aside, Doug Benevento finds serving on the Douglas County School Board gratifying — so much so he’d like to do it another four years. “It’s rewarding when we’re at board meetings and you see wonderful kids and the things that they’ve accomplished, the wonderful teachers that have done great things,” he said. “It’s rewarding we’re putting more money in the classrooms, and we’re paying our best teachers more. “When we walked in, we were in the teeth of the recession. We worked as a team on the board to solve that challenge and solve it in a manner we felt was best for the district.” Benevento, elected to the District E seat in 2009, is one of four candidates endorsed

by the Douglas County Republicans in this year’s election. An attorney for Xcel Energy, the Colorado native previously served as Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment director and U.S. Senator Wayne Allard’s senior policy adviser. His two daughters attend Platte River Academy charter school. Benevento credits fatherhood for his interest in public service. “I thought of (school board) as returning something to the community,” he said. Parenthood also has guided his decisions thus Benevento far, he said. “I believe parents are the best decision-makers for their children,” Benevento said. “That was my theme four years ago and it’ll be my theme this year as well. “Each child is an individual and we need

to provide as many choices and educational options for students as possible. Then we put them in the best position to succeed in education as possible.” Pleased as he is by the current board’s accomplishments, Benevento said more needs to be done. “I think we need to continue to look for efficiencies in the district to return more money to the classroom,” he said. “I think we need to look for that next increment of parental choice. How can we make sure that child can access the school that works best for them? “We need to continue to develop the pay-for-performance system, (one) that is going to attract the best and keep the best teachers.” While Benevento acknowledges dissension surrounding some board decisions, he said he hasn’t yet heard convincing arguments from opponents — particularly on the voucher program. “There seems to be obstacles to any increment of choice because that’s too

much,” he said. “They’re not raising substantive arguments about what’s the matter with (the voucher program).” Plaintiffs in the lawsuit against the voucher program cited several concerns, including the use of public money by private schools. Benevento said he’s open to discussion if the focus is on the quantity of educational options — not eliminating choice altogether. “I would like everybody to be completely happy, but I think the vast majority are happy with the direction of the district,” he said. “Objectively, if you look at how the district is performing, clearly we are moving in the right direction.” Benevento acknowledged his acceptance of campaign funds during the 2009 election from private-school and schoolchoice supporters, but said it hasn’t influenced his decisions. “I guarantee you there is not a significant supporter I know of that has come to the district for anything,” he said.

Candidate is well-versed in facing challenges CU regent wants to serve with Douglas County Schools By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com James Geddes is no stranger to controversy. The District B candidate for the Douglas County School Board is a University of Colorado Regent who is pushing for change among the university’s staff and in the definition of discrimination. He believes the changes he seeks are coming, but said: “It’s been against some significant resistance.” The surgeon and Sedalia resident sees a lack of intellectual diversity among college professors, and hopes to help enact change. He also wants to ensure individuals’ expressions of political and philosophical beliefs

are protected. Geddes introduced a pair of resolutions designed to address those issues in June. Geddes, who describes himself as “a pretty strong conservative,” said a preponderance of liberal professors doesn’t provide students with a wellrounded education. “Most of our universities across the country have become very leftist and the faculty is standing right together on a point of orienGeddes tation,” he said. “We’re not providing the best possible educational environment for our kids, and that needs to change. “We need to actively bring in high-quality academics who are proponents of the other side of some of these issues. Students

then are well equipped to choose where they stand on these issues. I quite frankly think the same thing should be occurring in our high schools and junior highs to a certain degree.” If elected to the school board, Geddes said he would encourage a similar philosophy. “I think it has to occur as an initiative of the actual faculty,” he said. “For me to step in and say we’re going to line up all the teachers in high school, figure out where they’re standing politically and start sorting them into piles and reorganizing them — that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about an ethic we all need to share.” The Joplin, Mo., native grew up in Denver, and has a bachelor’s degree from CU and a medical degree from the University of Colorado-Denver School of Medicine. He is an emergency trauma and emergency gen-

eral thoracic surgeon in the Denver area. A father of four, Geddes’ two youngest children attend Cherry Hills Christian School; his oldest two are adults. Geddes is a Douglas County Republicanendorsed candidate who supports the district’s current pay-for-performance plan and voucher program. “I’m hoping that’ll go through the court system and come back to us,” he said of the voucher program. “Then we can fully implement it.” Measuring teacher success is not an easy task, he said. “I don’t think the last chapter’s been written on how that’s done,” he said. “But in concept, if a teacher’s doing a great job and creating eager learners … that teacher Geddes continues on Page 13

New Christian elementary expanding Arma Dei Academy to move from church basement to two-story addition By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com A private Christian school launched last year with nine students will expand into a new space with room for as many as 210 students next spring. Leaders of Arma Dei Academy, which now is housed in the basement of Living Way Fellowship Church in Highlands Ranch, breaks ground on the two-story expansion Oct. 1. Four Douglas County families helped open the K-8 school in September 2012. Seven of the original nine students were the founding parents’ children. The school now has 26 students, and its board is secure enough in its future to take a huge step forward. “We’re just seeing more interest in classical Christian education, especially in the lower grades,” board chairman Greg Vigil said. “Having a home for the school will reinforce that the school’s not going anywhere. I think it will give people confidence it’s a viable alternative for their child’s education.” The 16,000-square-foot addition will be connected to the church. Arma Dei Academy will have a long-term lease on the space, with the goal of

someday building its own separate structure and then turning the attached space back over to Living Way. “It’s a huge upgrade from our current use of the space where we’re a tenant and we’re secondary to the primary user,” Vigil said. The board’s ultimate goal is construction of a free-standing, K-12 campus, ideally on a vacant 7-acre parcel adjacent to the Wildcat Reserve Parkway church.

Teacher team runs 200-mile race Castle Rock group says event links them to outdoor ed students By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Teachers at Castle Rock’s Renaissance Expeditionary Learning Outward Bound School regularly expose their students to outdoor experiences designed to challenge and enlighten. On Sept. 6 and 7, a dozen of them led by example. The team completed the 200-mile, overnight Ragnar Relay Series from Copper Mountain to Snowmass. The series, held in locations across the country, involves teams of six to 12 who run in shifts. Each participant runs three times at varying distances and terrain. “As teacher and educators, we are walking away with so much more knowledge and understanding for kids, especially as we get ready to send them out on these adventure ed programs,” teacher Lindsey Burris said. “It definitely has given us new eyes to look at our kids through. We were in that vulnerable place they are.” Lauren Gunn, a non-runner when she agreed to be part of the team, agrees. “We walk the path, and try and do the same things (our students) do,” she said.

“Even if we’re not runners, we’re not letting fear stop us.” Students at the K-6 school participate in outdoor education adventures twice a year. Teachers said the overnight odyssey gives them an experience to draw from when asking students to rise to a challenge. “I can say, `I want you to push yourself to the point you are stepping out and taking a risk. It’s OK to fail because you have people around you that will support you,’ ” Burris said. That support from their fellow teachers during the 200-mile run was vital, the participants said. As one teammate ran, the others drove the course in a van looking for their fellow runner, then stopped to cheer that person on. “In the middle of the night, I was getting delusional I was so tired,” Gunn said. “But when you felt like there was nothing left, suddenly you would see your van pulled over and there they were — all cheering.” The support expanded to include teacher Hanni Gilbert, who had to drop out of the race when she suffered a debilitating migraine the morning of the event. Teammates rallied to take her legs of the race, and ran with a T-shirt bearing her name. Students also urged their teachers on toward success before race day. “For me, having those encouraging words and the visualization of their little

Courtesy photo faces just pushed me that extra mile,” Burris said. The experience not only enabled the teachers to relate more intimately to their students’ outdoor challenges, but brought them closer as a teaching team. “People ask, `What place did you finish?

Bring your little pumpkins to the Fall Festival at Schweiger Ranch.

What was our overall time?’ ” said first-year Renaissance teacher Amanda Deegan. “I don’t even know because that wasn’t what it was about. “I feel like I have a family at this school. It’s not just a job. These are people I’ve been through a lot with already.”

e Yellowstone’s neighbor is magical place

mmer, eseld

-year n. “I what

hool. been

Mention Yellowstone National Park and just about everyone has either been there or knows of its many natural wonders, including the most famous of all geysers, “Old Faithful.” Wildlife is another major draw, and it is one of the few places in the country where visitors may actually see wild, freeroaming grizzly bears and wolves. But resting just a few miles south of Yellowstone’s south entrance in Wyoming, via the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway, lies another popular national park that is often overlooked by Yellowstone-bound visitors. It’s called Grand Teton National Park, and mid-September to early October is truly one of the best times of the year to experience this national treasure. Yellowstone and the Tetons share much in common, but are not the same. Each park has its own distinct features, and if you skip the Tetons you are missing some of the best Western outdoor grandeur in the National Park System. The jagged peaks of the Teton Range can be seen long before entering the park. Once inside the park there are a number of popular viewing areas — Oxbow Bend, Cottonwood Creek, the Snake River Overlook and Coulter Bay, to mention a few. As dawn approaches, photographers from all over will gather at these sites to capture the first rays of the sun as it slowly brings the majestic peaks of the Tetons to life. Elk, bison, pronghorn antelope and black and grizzly bears may be seen throughout the park. Moose, a park favorite, thrive in the valleys and are often seen feeding along the Snake River, and around the Oxbow Bend overlook area. Just one of a number of camping grounds in the park, and a good bet for moose watching, is the Gros Ventre Campground, just a dozen or so miles from the Town of Jackson. Nestled in the shadow of the Tetons and among the tall cottonwoods that line the Gros Ventre River, this spot provides all the makings for a great outdoor experience. Bears, moose and other wildlife can usually be found along the Moose-Wilson Road

near the south end of the park. In anticipation of the coming winter, bears will go on a feeding frenzy and gorge themselves in the numerous hawthorn and chokecherry berry bushes that line this stretch of roadway. Be prepared to face traffic jams and delays if a bear or moose is spotted. The road is narrow and will not accommodate many vehicles at a time, but who really cares? Jackson Lake, Jenny Lakes, the Snake River and numerous other waters in and around the park provide excellent fishing. These pristine waters also provide opportunities for canoeing, kayaking and other outdoor activities. Hiking trails and picnic areas abound. Mormon Row, near Antelope Flats, contains probably the most photographed barns in the country. With the Tetons rising in the background, these roughly 100-year-old-plus shelters are best seen and photographed with the morning sun. The Moulton Barn was featured in the Hollywood classic “Spencer’s Mountain,” starring Henry Fonda, and has graced the pages of many a magazine and Christmas card. There is just so much history here to see and enjoy. Timing is everything when it comes to catching the autumn colors, usually late September into early October. During the peak of the season, the countryside is ablaze with various shades of yellow, orange and red. It’s absolutely breathtaking and a good time to be there. Tony Lane, the former police chief of Castle Rock, is an avid outdoorsman and photographer.

Oxbow Bend is just one of many scenic overlooks in Grand Teton National Park that provide breathtaking views of the Teton Range and the autumn colors. Photos by Tony Lane

In anticipation of winter, this black bear gorges himself on the fall crop of berries along the Moose-Wilson Road in Grand Teton National Park. Moose sightings are also frequent along this stretch of roadway.

About 3 p.m. Sept. 13, the convoy took off to get the kids and their teachers and chaperones — who didn’t know that help was on the way to get them home. A message had been sent, but the camp didn’t get the message. Since mid-day Sept. 12, power was out in Estes Park. Gnaegy had made contact with another YMCA camp in Winter Park, and the person there was able to renew communication indirectly by connecting with someone in Estes Park who had a walkie-talkie or satellite phone that he was able to use in his car and connect somehow with the Estes Park YMCA camp, Gnaegy said. They would set up scheduled communications periodically this way to check on the kids. But after the decision was made to take a convoy up, and a message was sent about that, and somehow it didn’t get though. Gnaegy said she thinks it was because the camp got very busy at that point, as the camp, she found out later, had received word the camp’s road had

an intricate project. There are so many moving pieces and logistics to consider that Doug Voss, project superintendent for Weaver General Construction, finds himself thinking about them in church. “I’m thinking of the whole picture. I have to keep in perspective where we’re at and where we’re going,” he said. “Just like the reservoir or any other project, I have to look six months to

maybe 30 minutes before potentially washing out. They were busy getting out the Douglas County students as well as students from a couple other schools. Gnaegy was later told that students were shuttled about five at a time in YMCA pickups that were being driven behind a front-end loader, which pushed water and debris out of the way, clearing the way for the pickups. The students then were taken to a restaurant parking lot and put on buses that they took about four miles or so to the Rocky Mountain Church in Estes Park, where they would be safer. Gnaegy said when the school district’s convoy rolled up to the church about 8 p.m. there were a lot of tears. “I’ve never been so excited to see a principal in all my life,” a student told her. The students got into the white SUVs, got food bags that had been prepared on a moment’s notice by the district’s nutrition services, and then the drivers took off for home. The drivers included Paul Balon, the district’s director of transportation, and district bus drivers, who coincidentally were quite familiar with Trail Ridge Road — which at its highest point is at 12,183 feet in elevation. They had trained on that road in the past as an exercise in

dealing with challenging driving situations. But on this trip, Trail Ridge Road didn’t have a “drop of precipitation … It usually causes people grief, but it was the road that saved us,” Gnaegy said. “The moon was out and guided us all the way.” The students, who had learned compass skills and using the stars for navigation at the camp, practiced those skills, on the way home — before falling asleep, Gnaegy said. When they got to Pine Grove at 1 a.m. Sept. 14, parents were lining the sidewalks. They knew about when the convoy was expected because of periodic emails about the progress. Gnaegy said she can’t say enough about the YMCA staff who kept the kids calm and busy with fun activities throughout this saga. And for the school-district team that put this effort together. The students got Sept. 16 off from school to recuperate and rest. Gnaegy said the adults would meet soon to discuss what could be done differently next time. But overall, things went well. Michelle Yi, school district spokeswoman, said that “this is truly a shining example of the Douglas County community coming together to work toward a great cause.”

a year ahead of time so we don’t run into a dead end.” Voss admits that he has help on the ground; two supervisors make sure the structure is being built according to design by the 80 workers now on the site. When asked whether he gets any time off, Voss, who oversaw the six-year-long construction of RueterHess Reservoir and Dam, says he has passed up on six weeks of vacation over the last two years “I’m not going to give them any time this year. They’ll have to do without me,” he says with a laugh. The $50 million treatment plant, funded through a revenue bond ap-

proved by the PWSD board in 2010, will undergo three expansions in later decades. When it opens, presumably in early 2015, it will be capable of producing 10 million gallons of water from Rueter-Hess Reservoir each day and take pressure off the wells throughout the district that pump out groundwater from vanishing aquifers. Voss isn’t cutting any corners and will take as much time as needed to make sure the final product does exactly what it’s supposed to. “It’ll take time to make sure the process is flawless,” he says. “We’ll be running practice cycles until we are sure we have a good process.”

it to the Senate floor: legislation that would have banned the carrying of concealed guns on college campuses, and another bill, sponsored by Morse, that would have placed strict liability on gun owners and manufacturers whose weapons were used in crimes. “I think it was too much on that issue,” Jahn said of gun-control efforts. “Strict liability was way too far-reaching for me. You have to look at ramifications and consequences. I do believe that some of them were not good pieces of legislation.” Kerr voted for the limit on ammunition magazines and universal background checks, but voted against a separate bill that requires people to pay for their own background checks. And Kerr said he was the reason why Morse didn’t bring the liability bill to the Senate floor. “I went to him and said to him I couldn’t support it,” Kerr said. “I ended up being the swing vote, causing that bill to not be brought up for a vote. He needed 18 votes and he had 17 without me.”

“I am relieved to see that voters across the political spectrum stood up for their constitutional rights,” said Holbert. “We are elected to represent the people, not to negotiate with those rights. I hope that members of the other party, those who voted for the bills, will think about that.” But Democrats — while they certainly are disappointed with the election results — say it’s important to keep the results in perspective, considering that the elections were decided by a small percentage of Colorado voters. “This was a very small number of voters that turned out,” said state Sen. Andy Kerr, D-Lakewood. “They were very passionate, but a small sliver of the total population of each district.” But Loevy doesn’t think it’s possible for the results to be overstated, argu-

Tough votes for some Dems

Democrats probably didn’t know at the time that gun-control bills that were being passed during this year’s legislative session would result in firstof-their-kind recall elections. But they knew that the legislation had the potential of putting some Democrats in a tough spot with voters down the road. Sen. Cheri Jahn, D-Wheat Ridge, voted for bills that instituted universal background checks on gun sales in the state, but voted against another bill that bans ammunition magazines that hold more than 15 rounds. And Jahn nearly had to make tough votes on bills that died before making

Right: Harper’s first step was focus on the needs of digital natives. Above: Demonstrating the 4th “C”! Collaboration!

Mammoth Heights Teacher marries Innovation with Experience to create Primary Innovation Studio

Mammoth Heights Elementary students are learning in a new, innovative environment, thanks to the vision of second grade teacher Mary Lisa Harper, support from the Douglas County School District (DCSD) and a generous grant from the Morgridge Family Foundation. Harper spent the summer designing a classroom that incorporates new concepts in education. Integrating the latest research with her own 20 years of classroom experience, Harper built the Primary Innovation Studio. “I realize that we are moving in education. And to work in the same box that we have been working in for the past decades is just not going to work for today’s kid. We have to move forward and someone is going to have to give it a try,” Harper said. Harper’s first step was to focus on the needs of “digital native” students, those who have grown up with technology, though her classroom is not just about technology. “I think that the shift is more in the teacher than with the technology. I can have five iPads and be teaching with great 21st Century Skills and it could be a 21st Century classroom. We don’t need [a

lot of technology]. The big shift is within. It’s how you approach kids. How you understand that they’re a different breed right now when it comes to learning.”

“There is a space for all of the 4 C’s, that’s how I designed it,” Harper explained. “Creativity, there is the Maker’s

“The big shift is within. It’s how you approach kids. How you understand that they’re a different breed right now when it comes to learning.” — Mammoth Heights Elementary Teacher Mary Lisa Harper

Space. Communication—there is a stage where kids can meet in groups or if they so choose, they can collaborate and communicate with their peers. Critical Thinking—you see with white boards that are lower, with all the technology. And the Collaboration—it’s absolutely everywhere.”

According to Harper, students have a lot more flexibility within the room to find the right niche that supports their learning. This is a big departure from the picture of school most of us are used to – this is a classroom that is driven by student needs. “Certainly as primary teachers, we are used to guiding every single step of the way… that Victorian model is ingrained in us. I have the picture of my aunt in the classroom and she’s teaching. All the kids are sitting in rows. And she is the deliverer of all knowledge. It’s just not like that anymore,” Harper said. “I knew something had to change. My delivery had to start looking different because kids are changing,” Harper added. “Honestly, I was getting bored with the textbook teaching. I knew something was going to have to happen in my career in order to invigorate me to be my best for [the] kids.” Harper hopes that the lessons learned in the Primary Innovation Studio will help teachers at Mammoth Heights Elementary and across DCSD consider new ways to engage students.

Superintendent Dr. Liz Fagen announced plans to pass on $4.5 million in increased available resources to our classrooms in the form of average salary increases totaling $3 million and $1.5 million back to our schools in the form of Student Based Budgeting (SBB). “True to the way that we have budgeted over the past three years, we spend within our means so that we do not ever have to cut our budgets to get back within our reoccurring revenues. Then, when we realize additional one-time or ongoing monies, we immediately put those back into the classroom or our employees,” Fagen said.

Superintendent Fagen drafted a plan to send the money to Douglas County School District (DCSD) classrooms. The plan was unanimously approved by the DCSD Board of Education and also included an average one percent ongoing raise, differentiated for performance, for all DCSD licensed, classified and professional/technical staff, and administrators who were eligible to receive the Board-approved pay increases in May 2013. This is an additional average ongoing pay increase of one percent to the plan that was approved in May 2013. “This is once again a reflection of our vision, our philosophy and our commitment to use every dollar in the classroom, to reduce administrative costs, to use every conceivable dime that we can; to get it to the professionals,” said Board of Education Director Craig Richardson.

DCSD, Community Team to bring students home safely

The convoy

“Safety is a top priority at Douglas County School District and this is truly a shining example of the Douglas County community coming together. We’re thankful to everyone involved - including the families, students, teachers, principal, district leadership, bus drivers, operations team, the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office, the YMCA of the Rockies, and the National Park Service - for all their help in getting our kids home safely.” — DCSD Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Fagen

Last week, a group of 87 sixth graders and six adults were stranded at Estes Park due to the extreme weather. The Pine Grove Elementary (Parker, CO) students were attending a regularly scheduled outdoor education field trip at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park. Due to the extreme weather conditions, the group was not able to return home as scheduled.

The only major road into Estes Park was completely flooded and Trail Ridge Road was the only available alternative to exit Estes Park. Unfortunately, the high, mountain road is only open during the summer months. As DCSD monitored the forecast, it was apparent there was only a brief window of time on Friday when the rain would slow down and make a rescue possible. DCSD and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office contacted the National Park

Service to request that Trail Ridge Road be opened briefly in order to rescue students. Once given permission to enter the park, DCSD dispatched a convoy of 15 SUV’s, two small activity buses, and a service truck to pick up the students and staff. A Douglas County Sheriff’s deputy escorted the group the entire trip. The convoy left at approximately 2:40 p.m. on Friday. All the transportation professionals who were dispatched had trained specifically on Trail Ridge Road. “Throughout the entire process the safety of the staff and students was the primary concern of both the Pine Grove staff and District administration,” said DCSD Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Fagen. “This was absolutely a team effort,” said Fagen. “The district leadership Continued on page 4

C2E Students hope to lift spirits, benefit Aurora theatre and Sandy Hook victims

Following the July 2012 Aurora theater and December 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary mass shootings, the students at Parker’s Challenge to Excellence Charter School say they experienced a wave of emotions. The sixth-grade students in Glenn Thompson’s class channeled those feelings into something tangible, the creation of a book filled with positive messages.

These Parker, Colorado, students wanted to find a way to reach out to all people and the families that have been affected by these senseless tragedies everywhere. This book is dedicated in particular to the victims and families of the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater shooting and to the victims and families of the Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting.

“Colorado: A New Perspective” includes 71 pages with messages of hope, photographs and drawings by Thompson’s students. After compiling the content, the students decided to publish their work, with the ultimate goal of sending proceeds and a few copies of their book to families of victims in both Aurora and Newtown.

team and Pine Grove Elementary coordinated a community-wide effort to bring our students home safely. We had our best drivers transporting students, our operations team coordinated the trip with the National Park Service and the YMCA of the Rockies; Nutrition Services quickly assembled food and snacks for students; Communications provided information to parents and support for Pine Grove staff; and, the Douglas County Sheriff provided leadership and an escort for the rescue convoy,” continued Fagen. In the interim, the Pine Grove Elementary group was evacuated from the YMCA of the Rockies to a general evacuation point near Estes Park and the convoy met them there. The group arrived home to roars of applause and cheering from overjoyed parents and staff just shy of 1 a.m. Saturday morning.

Family secrets surface at Curious ‘After the Revolution’ focuses on dynamics

By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcolorado news.com Strains of “Teach Your Children” play in the background as lights go up on a striking two-story set with old brick apartment walls, hundreds of books and a stairstep bookcase connecting the levels. Curious Theatre opened its 16th season with “After the Revolution” by up-and-coming young American playwright Amy Herzog, a play about generations of a New York Marxist family and a secret that comes to light. Ben Joseph (Gordon McConnell) is talking about the school where he teaches history and social justice, criticizing the principal. His audience is his brother Leo (Mark Collins), on sabbatical working on a book. Enter their assertive mother Vera (Anne Oberbroeckling), who is opinionated, hard of hearing and a

Lauren Bahlman as Emma Joseph and Jim Hunt as Morty discuss a possible foundation contribution in “After the Revolution” at Curious Theatre. Courtesy photo wonderfully colorful character. There is talk of the departed Joe Joseph, famous Marxist, father and husband and of his granddaughter Emma, who has started a foundation in his name for social causes. It seems a new book is coming out from Yale Press that accuses Joe of spying for the Russians, a story Emma doesn’t know. How should they tell her? How will it affect her life

and her foundation? Emma Joseph (Lauren Bahlman) and her boyfriend Miguel (Matthew Block) talk about the foundation where he also works and a campaign to help a black man in prison, accused of shooting a cop. She also meets with a wealthy donor, Morty (Jim Hunt). When Emma arrives at her parents’ home, her father tells her that her grandfather is

named as an ideological Communist who gave secrets to Russia in the new book and that the family won’t contest it because it is true. She is shattered and angry and the story takes off from there, focusing on individual characters’ reactions and responses — and a compelling look at family dynamics as they process a significant period in recent history. Also in the strong cast: Dee Covington as Ben’s compassionate wife and Jessica Roblee as Emma’s sister Jess, who is afflicted by addiction problems. The acting is uniformly strong, thoughtfully directed by Chip Walton. Bahlman and Oberbroeckling particularly stand out. Background music is carefully chosen and lighting enhances the fine set.

“Beverly Hills Cop” movie franchise actor and Fort Collins resident John Ashton is about as happy as it gets for someone who has chosen and endured a rather tortured profession. Ashton has ridden the Hollywood roller-coaster especially after finding fame in the Eddie Murphy vehicles “Beverly Hills Cop” and “Beverly Hills Cop II” playing the curmudgeonly Detective Sgt. John Taggart. Ashton, who retreated to a relatively quiet life in Fort Collins years ago because Hollywood felt like an ill-fitting suit, is back in the movie game with “Uncle John,” an independent film where he stars as the namesake character in this murder mystery set in Wisconsin and Chicago. The movie will likely travel to the Sundance Film Festival or, if luck is on their side, first to producer/director David Lynch, who worked with “Uncle John” writer and producer Erik Crary on the film “Inland Empire” in 1996. But Ashton, who earlier this week parted company with his agents, is most fired up about this movie, which he says has brought him back to his original journey to become an actor who does meaningful work. “It’s the best script I’ve read in years,” Ashton told me during a phone interview. “It’s something I’ve been begging my agents for me to do. I read the script and said, ‘Man, I’m on board.’ I don’t think I’m going to work for anybody over 40 anymore.” Like I said, Ashton plays the title character who is a level-headed guy who helps out his neighbors with fix-it jobs in rural Wisconsin. “He’s Uncle John,” Ashton said. “Everybody loves him. He fixes people’s water pipes and cabinet doors. The honesty of the character I loved.”

One thinks of kings and castles, but Arvada’s remarkable set designer, Brian Malgrave, sets that castle at a dreamy distance and places the action in the surrounding landscape, with gnarly trees and rocks, where it may be a bit cold and damp. Myths about the idealistic King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table have accumulated for a thousand years, and there are numerous Arthur-related locations to attract the history-oriented traveler today. Think of “Camelot” as armchair travel. In 1958, well-loved American writer T. H. White published his charming version, “The Once and Future King,” which a friend recommended to famous librettist Alan Jay Lerner as a possible next show. Lerner connected with producer Moss Hart and they convinced composer Fred-

Fine arts faculty issues invitation Show at ACC brings in wide variety of works By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews. com The Arapahoe Community College fine arts faculty has again invited professional colleagues from the community and other colleges to share its space in the handsome Colorado Gallery of the Arts. The resulting exhibit, “Arapahoe Community Fine Arts Faculty and Friends,” offers an engaging blend of art in individual styles ranging from precise traditional photography to abstract three-dimensional works, beautifully crafted ceramics and finely wrought jewelry. Brightly colored mobiles by Jon Koenigsberg catch the light as they hang from the ceiling, drawing the eye to a strong collection of ceramics displayed on pedestals in the gallery center, while walls hold a variety of carefully installed works, arranged by gallery curator Trish Sangelo.

Centered on the east wall is Peter Illig’s pixelated portrait, “Blue Spark.” His website says: “My art works are all analogies for human evolutions and experiences — American psychological landscapes.” He has taught at Heritage and Chaparral High Schools and area colleges. Randy Burns, who teaches jewelry at ACC, has several beautifully crafted silver pieces, set with gemstones. Other displays would seem to be crafted by a jewelry maker, but are sculptural: Amy Bailey’s three small works and “Life Values” by Yuko Yagisawa. We wish there were information available in the gallery about these obviously accomplished artists. Sangelo said she had requested it, but had only three responses. Fine art is indeed a way of communicating, but a few words can truly enhance the viewer’s experience!

Mustangs too much for Titans Ponderosa takes 3-0 win over Legend in volleyball By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Ponderosa won the first two sets in its Continental League match Sept. 12 against Legend, but Mustangs coach Rob Graham couldn’t prevent his thoughts from drifting back to last season. The Mustangs won 25-21 and 25-13 in the first two games and prevailed 25-22 in the third set to leave the Legend gym with a 3-0

victory. “We played really good in the first and second games but in the third game we had way too many mental errors,” said Graham. “I think maybe we were satisfied with our level of play. “Last year they came to our place and they (beat) us the first two games but we won the next three. That’s what I slowly saw happening, beating them twice and then in the third game we let down. But you know what? They made good plays at the end when it mattered.” The win gave the Mustangs, a Class 4A team, a 2-0 record in Continental League play while the Titans fell to 1-1.

“It was kind of a balanced effort,” said Graham. “No one player shined for us. Everybody did well in what we needed them to do. It was just a nice team effort. “It was a big win for the girls. Obviously, Legend is a huge rival. It was also big because every time we win a league game it gets us that much closer to challenging for the league championship. Playing this level night in and night out preps us for the end of the season.” Ponderosa played at Heritage in a Continental League match Sept. 17 and will host Littleton Sept. 19. Legend played at Littleton Sept. 17 before a match against ThunderRidge Sept. 19.

Senior Allison Smith had 14 kills in the three sets against Legend, Marisa Gibbons led the team with four blocks, Ellise Lech had 13 digs and Becca Page had 25 assists for the Mustangs. “I feel like we’re coming together as a team,” said Smith. “We really weren’t used to playing together as a team because we had a lot of new varsity players so we are a new team. “We just love playing together and we’re going to be a great team this year.” Legend is a rebuilding team and learning what it takes to win. “With graduating the five seniors that we did last year, we lost a lot of talent and leadership,”

said Legend coach Katie Winsor. “But what is great is we are really big and physical this year. We probably have more power hitting than we have ever had. We are fairly young in a lot of positions. We have some great senior leadership but in terms of depth a lot of the kids we rely on a great deal are sophomores. “We’ve had a lot of tough competition. We are playing better. We played fairly reserved against Ponderosa. Ponderosa played great, obviously. We need to get that game-competition maturity.” Nikki Kennedy had six kills, Meg Housholder 18 digs and Sophie Brennan 17 assists to lead the Titans.

Huskies beat Bruins to move 3-0 on season Douglas County uses all-around effort to defeat Cherry Creek By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Third-ranked Cherry Creek contained Douglas County’s heralded back Trey Smith but that’s about all the mistake-prone Bruins did right against the Huskies. Douglas County trailed 3-0 in the final minute of the second quarter but reeled off 23 unanswered points to upset the Bruins, 23-10, in an early-season showdown between unbeaten teams Sept. 16 at the Stutler Bowl in Greenwood Village. The game was originally scheduled for Sept. 12 but was postponed because the Cherry Creek school district canceled activities due to the heavy rains. “I was a little disappointed we didn’t get to play on Thursday,” said Huskies coach

Jeff Ketron. “I thought we were ready, I thought our kids were focused. Then I saw something when we were practicing Friday. We brought them in Saturday at 6 o’clock in the morning. It was foggy and we had to turn the lights on. I just saw something in this team that I haven’t seen.” He liked what he saw against Cherry Creek as Douglas County improved to 3-0 in the first of three games in 11 days. The Huskies play Rocky Mountain Sept. 20 and open Continental League play Sept. 26 against Mountain Vista. Smith, who came into the game averaging 293.5 all-purpose yards a game, gained 21 yards on 11 carries and scored once. He also caught one pass for six yards and had an interception. The Huskies had plenty of other players stand out, including junior defensive end Tomatea Barlett, whose parents are from New Zealand. He was in on six quarterback sacks and deflected a pass. Barlett, CJ Briggs and Devin Jackson Football continues on Page 26

Are you in love with your home but afraid of your stairs?

Why struggle up and down stairs when Easy Climber® can give you a lift? Easy Climber® is the easy, convenient and affordable way to get up and down your stairs without the danger and health risks. Remember the days when you woke up, jumped out of bed, threw on your clothes and ran down the stairs to greet the day? Yeah... me neither... that was years ago. Now, everyone from my doctor to my kids are telling me I need to avoid using my stairs. The problem is, I’ve lived in this house for years, and if I don’t use the stairs I either have to sleep in my family room or live in my bedroom. Why should I risk my safety just to get around? Then, a friend told me about an innovative solution, the Easy Climber®. It’s basically a chair lift for your stairs... and it’s given me back my home.

At the 1889 World’s Fair in Paris, the company that makes the Easy Climber® was inspired by the lift used in the Eiffel Tower and later created a lift of their own. In 1961 they introduced the first seated stair lift, and now they’ve taken their knowledge and expertise and created the safest stair climber on the market today. Easy Climber has exclusive safety features and design innovations as standard equipment. This exclusive product was designed with one overwhelming goal: safety first. From a seat that won’t let you get out the wrong way to a battery backup for power outages,

Why this is the safest and most reliable product on the market

Whether it’s due to balance or mobility issues or cardiac or other health concerns, why risk your life on the stairs when an easy and affordable solution is only a phone call away. Call now and a knowledgeable product expert will answer any questions you may have.

Safety: Easy Climber features a swivel seat, foot and armrest that are powered to enable you to get in and out of the chair safely and easily. Sensors automatically stop it immediately if it hits an object. There’s even an EZ Clip buckle on the seat belt and no slip handles for added peace of mind. Quality and Simplicity: This company has been making these products for a long time– they do it right. This exclusive model features innovative design and quality components. It’s simple and reliable, with the least need for maintenance and repair. Warranty: This system is backed by Easy Climber exclusive limited lifetime warranty - the best in the business.

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