School election: Big issues at stake Vouchers, pay protocol among controversial reform efforts By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The Douglas County School District is in the midst of what Superintendent Elizabeth Fagen recently called “the most rigorous transformation plan in American public education.” The arguments surrounding that effort are varied, some distinct to Douglas County and others similar to those surrounding

education reform nationwide. That makes the Nov. 5 school board election — which could signal a shift in the school board’s direction — the focus of national attention. The race for four seats on the seven-member board features eight candidates, four favoring the board’s reform efforts and four looking for a change in direction. Controversy has surrounded almost ev-

The many other reform pieces include a redesign of the teachers’ pay-for-performance system first introduced in 1993, and a market-based pay scale believed to be the first in the nation implemented at the K-12 level.

District officials and reform supporters say Douglas County is leading the way, with programs and systems that will serve as a model for other districts across the country as the United States attempts to restore its academic record. The plans also give parents control and choice over their individual child’s education, a role reformers see as logical and appropriate. Some community members who see DCSD as a test case for the nation question the level of research behind and validity of Election continues on Page 30

Burn victim takes recovery in stride Teenager from Parker attends healing camps By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Young males are known for getting banged up while living on the wild side. Nate Sheets might be their poster boy. Scrapes, bruises and the occasional broken bone are par for the course when coming of age. But three years ago, Sheets endured something most people hope they never have to: severe burns. Then 12 years old, he was riding an ATV when he took off awkwardly from a jump and landed in a heap. Sheets landed upside down with the machine on top of him. Worst of all, his left arm became wedged between the searing-hot oil cap and exhaust pipe. If not for his 14-year-old brother, who saw the accident and hauled the ATV off of him, it might have burned Sheets’ arm down to the bone. He didn’t cry or scream out in pain. There was no pain, in fact, because the metal that left a half-inch-deep brand on his flesh also burned the nerves. “He looked melted. I would say that’s a great way to put it,” says his mother, Brenda Walstrom, who received a texted photo and message asking if she wanted to meet at the emergency room. Despite the turmoil that might have ensued, Sheets took the aftermath in stride, cheerily greeting the doctors charged with cleaning the gravel and dirt-filled wound. But he knew he was lucky. Sheets hit his head, but did not suffer a concussion. He was wearing a helmet, something “everyone and their dog” asked him about following the crash, he says. He was also wearing goggles

Nathan Sheets shows off the scar he got after an ATV landed on top of him, pinning his arm and inflicting third-degree burns that required two skin grafts.

that caused a cut on his forehead and a black bruise on his eyelid. In typical adolescent fashion, he played up the injuries, telling stories of fending off a bear. Or when girls asked him, Sheets would say he “saved a bunch of kittens and babies from a burning building,” before revealing the real, less-flattering version of events. Sheets, now 15, went through five casts, two skin grafts and countless compression sleeves, and the burns took more than a year to heal. His lengthy recovery was aided by The Children’s Hospital, which not only treated

Sheets, but invited him to a camp for young burn victims run by the Cheley organization. It was there that he swapped stories with kids who suffered burns over as much as 90 percent of their bodies. Sheets’ most recent trip was in late September to Washington, D.C., where he visited several national landmarks with 100 child burn victims from the U.S. and Canada. He received a special invitation from South Metro Fire Rescue Firefighter Lee Maulsby to attend the International Burn Camp, run by the International Association of Firefighters. Of course, trouble seems to find Sheets, or vice versa. During a winter camp for burn victims in Steamboat Springs, he tried out the trick park on a snowboard. On the third jump, he broke his wrist on the same arm that was burned. “It was the last day of camp at least,” says Sheets, who also admits to being back on an ATV within five months of the crash. Walstrom calls her son a “glass-halffull kind of guy,” with a penchant for danger — and a high pain tolerance. On a separate occasion, he nearly ripped a finger off his left hand with a homemade can crusher. Sheets laughs when his mom suggests that his left arm might pop off and run away, Addams Family-style. Her son has returned from the skate park with a massive knot on his forehead, and split his lip wide open twice. For all of his run-ins with the ground, Sheets shows no signs of disfigurement, with the exception of the third-degree burn scars on his arm. Walstrom might be slightly mentally scarred, as she is more hesitant to answer her phone these days for fear of what news she might receive.

The latest in a series of housing proposals would add 140 homes on the west end of Parker. Parker Town Council approved the rezoning and annexation request for Carousel Farms on first reading at a meeting Oct. 7, and is expected to make a final decision during its 7 p.m. Oct. 21 meeting at town hall. Century Communities is planning to build 140 single-family homes on 40 acres on the north side of Mainstreet, just west of Bradbury Ranch. The three properties that would be developed were owned by separate holding companies. If approved, a portion of the land would be rezoned from agricultural use to residential use. Carousel Farms, with a proposed housing density of 3.5 dwelling units per acre, would connect via trail to Bradbury Ranch, and a 20- to 25-foot buffer would separate the neighborhoods. A representative for the Bradbury Ranch Homeowners’ Association said the organization would reserve comment on the development until after its Oct. 17 meeting. A greenbelt proposed as a neighborhood buffer was eliminated and a handful of lot sizes on the eastern side of Carousel Farms were enlarged because of concerns that the greenbelt might become “unmaintained, collect trash and become a safety issue,” according to an engineer’s report. “Though staff understands the intent of creating an open space buffer between the neighborhoods, we are concerned about the future of this space,” a representative from Peak Civil Consultants said. Small parks and greenbelts totaling eight acres would dot the subdivision, which will have street names like Wooden Horse Street, Galloper Avenue and Flying Horse Way. Vacant horse stables and equestrian riding arenas occupy the site. Because a school site is not located within Carousel Farms, a “school mitigation plan” has been included within the annexation contract, according to the neighborhood’s planned development

Field of opportunity rich but rocky Emily Jacomet and Connor Buckborough stood at the top of the escalator, their red “Ask Me” T-shirts loudly proclaiming their belief in the seemingly infinite possibilities lined up table-by-table in the cavernous room just beyond them. Emily: “It’s more than just an education. It’s an experience. You’ll remember these experiences and these friends for the rest of your life.” Connor: “It’s the world’s best network.” Emily: “I’ve met my lifelong friends.” Connor, nodding: “They’ll be in my wedding, for sure.” Student ambassadors from University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, Emily and Connor spent a recent afternoon welcoming an expected 4,000 high school students to the second annual national Denver College Fair at the Colorado Convention Center. “It’s overwhelming,” Emily said of the vast choice behind the doors. “It’s crazy. But once you find the school for you, you’ll just feel it.” Like a special relationship. Finding it, though, can feel almost

impossible as you walk into the hall where seemingly endless rows of tables in blue and white draping stretch from one end to the other. “It’s stressful,” Greenwood Village junior Jessica Diamond said, as she wandered down an aisle. The more than 300 universities offered something for everyone. There was Saint Michael’s College, a picturesque Catholic Vermont campus of 2,000 students. There was the spirited 24,000-student-strong University of Oregon. And there was Arizona State University with its mega-Tempe campus of more than 60,000 students. But even their stripped-down pres-

ence of tablecloths and pamphlets stirred a sense of excitement, of potential and promise and the glimpse of futures just waiting to be grasped. Students and parents strolled the aisles, looking, questioning, listening, waiting for that spark of connection that this could be a school to consider. “It’s kind of like in high school, you’re preparing for college,” said junior Elizabeth Lipshutz, a friend who accompanied Diamond. “In college, you’re preparing for the rest of your life.” Rafael Barron, a junior from Aurora, wants to be a doctor someday. He was looking for possibilities. “There’s so much to think about,” he said. “It makes me excited, not so much scared but nervous … about what would be the best choice for me.” His parents, Yadira and Gavino Barron, resolutely believe in the power of college as a launching pad to success, one worth sacrifice in time and money. “It’s so important to have that college degree,” Yadira said, “because no one can take that away from you.” She and Gavino have four children — Rafael will be the second to attend college. And Yadira will tell you she and her daughter, in her first year at Regis University, easily fall into dreaming about what lies ahead. Gavino is more pragmatic: “You’ve got dreams and goals, I’ve always said. A dream is just a dream — a goal is when you have a plan … This,” he said, glancing at the row of tables, “is part of the plan. This is a step from Point A to Point B. This is why we’re here.” But getting to Point B isn’t always easy these days. A report by the U.S. Department of Education finds that if the cost of attending public four-year institutions continues to increase, the price of a public education in 2016 will be more than twice what it was in 2001. “The rising cost of college,” the report continues, “may make it increasingly difficult for students to access and complete their postsecondary education.” About two-thirds of bachelor’s degrees recipients borrow money to pay for their education, research shows, and the aver-

age college senior graduates with $25,000 in student loan debt. That financial concern has refocused how colleges and universities reach out to prospective students, admissions directors say. “Four years at college is such a transformational time — you really figure out who you are,” said Anne Fattig, assistant director of admissions of small-town Simpson College in Iowa. “The right college kind of makes or breaks that to an extent.” But it’s not enough anymore to highlight only the experience. “It’s such an incredible investment,” Jeremy Brown of Saint Michael’s College said. Students need to “find that institution where not only they feel safe to explore who they are and who are going to become, but also a place where they have opportunities upon graduating.” So, outcomes — a college’s job placement and loan default rates, for instance — become key ingredients to the quest. Three years ago, Brown couldn’t have rattled off the college’s default rate without researching it first. Now, it’s at his fingertips. Students and parents, he said, want to know they’ll “be getting jobs when they graduate and can pay off their loans.” Connor Buckborough, the ambassador from UNC, is counting on being able to do just that. A sophomore studying communications and brewing technology, “I’m pretty far in the hole,” he said about his loan debt. But he has no doubt about his choices. “It’s going to be worth it, as long as you excel,” he said. “There’s always a way.” Emily Jacomet is certain, too. “One hundred percent. I’ll never regret going to college.” Education. Experience. Friendship. Self-discovery. Work. Amazing how a cavernous room of tables and pamphlets can scatter seeds of infinite possibilities.

Former mayor finds new role on stage Casiano launched theater company since leaving office By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com

David Casiano was destined for the spotlight. Having spent eight years as Parker’s mayor and another two as a town council member, Casiano has served as orator, decision-maker and, at times, referee. But it’s the drama of the stage that has beckoned him since his teen years in New York. Casiano’s post-political life has him under his preferred spotlight; it’s where he is most comfortable. Within months of leaving office last December, he announced that he was starting his own theater production company, Café La Papa. Casiano quickly formed partnerships with the Parker Arts Council and director Amy Smith, and starred in “The Zoo Story.” He also sat down with Elaine Mariner, a maven of the local theater scene and cultural director for the Town of Parker, and

together they decided to create the “OffPACE Theater District,” a place where more intimate plays can thrive. PACE refers to the Parker Arts, Culture and Events Center, a 530-seat venue that hosts larger, multiactor productions on its main stage. The “Off-PACE Theater District,” a take on the off-Broadway area in New York City, enables community groups, like the Parker Arts Council, to fill a niche for smaller shows at the Mainstreet Center and Parker Library. “They require minimal sets, but we want them to be thought-provoking productions and we want to have the audience become part of what we’re doing on stage,” he says. Casiano is the star of “Clarence Darrow: Attorney for the Damned,” a one-man production about the famed labor attorney, at Deep Space Workplace and Events Center on Pikes Peak Drive. It will continue its run at 7 p.m. Oct. 19, and pick up again Nov. 2 and Nov. 9 for two added shows. Casiano spent three months preparing for the role, researching Darrow’s manner of speaking and attire by reading books and watching a poor-quality video. When

asked about parallels between actor and subject, Casiano says he shares the passion that Darrow demonstrated when defending his clients. The former mayor was well known for digging his heels in and delivering emotional speeches during discussions on topics near to his heart. Casiano has been especially active with kids and teens, helping found an organization called Youth for Parker and teaching at Lutheran High School in Parker. His role as mentor is far from over: Casiano is again passing his skills to the next generation of great actors by teaching classes through Café La Papa and the Parker Arts Council, which recently elected him chairman of the board. Casiano, now 64 years old and a supervisor at Comcast, says the transition back into theater has been easy. He dabbled in a few plays while serving as mayor, and has gone full bore since striking out on his own. “I said, `What is it now I would truly like to accomplish? So, this was it,” he says, before ending in typical Casiano fashion. “What am I going to do, sit around and do nothing?”

‘Shop Parker’ program set to launch

The Town of Parker announced a new initiative aimed at encouraging residents and visitors to support local businesses. The “Shop Parker” program will create awareness in the community about the benefits of keeping sales tax dollars inside the town’s boundaries. A statement from the town cites the results of local commerce, saying the town boasts some of the area’s best public amenities. In the coming months, window stickers on storefronts of local businesses will indicate those who have adopted the “Shop Parker” cause. Those who shop locally take an active role in growing the Parker community, as area businesses pump dollars back into the local economy through taxes, payroll and purchases.

Teachers union wants renewed pact Group will seek new agreement no matter who wins election By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Regardless of who wins the school board election Nov. 5, the Douglas County teachers’ union wants to renew its collective bargaining agreement. Douglas County Federation of Teachers president Brenda Smith said the organization would not try to resurrect a previous arrangement under which the district paid half the salaries of some union officers, or the district collection of dues from teachers’ paychecks. But it wants to resume the 47-year-old agreement that expired in June 2012. “Absolutely, we’re going to ask for that,” Smith said. “It doesn’t matter who is on the school board. We’re going to continue to ask for a collective bargaining agreement because we know that’s what’s important. It is the teachers’ voice.” Despite conceding on two key points during the 100-plus-hour negotiations last year, Smith said the

union would not concede on the final sticking point: remaining the teachers’ exclusive bargaining agent. “Educators in Douglas County have chosen the DCF for the past half century,” she said. “It isn’t for the district to decide what organizations educators belong to. “Getting rid of exclusivity says there’s really nobody there to express the views of the teachers, which is where we are now.” Seven of the eight current Douglas County School Board candidates indicated whether they’d be willing to resume such discussions. (See the sidebar to this story for their responses.) Members of the current school board members say the absence of a teachers’ union has cleared the way for long-overdue reforms — including new teacher evaluations, a revamped pay-for-performance plan and a market-based pay system. But Smith believes the agreement’s expiration ignited new issues. “That’s what’s created a lot of the problems in the school district now,” she said. “I think that’s part of the problem with the morale issue. Teachers who have always been in an environment where they’re respected and listened to now don’t have that voice.”

Whether teacher morale is flagging is a matter of debate. While district leaders cite a statewide survey that shows most Douglas County teachers are happy in their individual school environment, many teachers publicly have said morale is at an all-time low and teachers are scared to speak. Since the agreement expired, membership in the teachers’ union has dropped from 70 to about 60 percent — a drop Smith attributes to the change in its collection of union dues, departure of teachers from the district, and restricted communication with new teachers. In June 2012, days before the agreement expired, the DCF filed a request for intervention in the negotiations with the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment. The state never has responded to the request. Smith said the union would withdraw that request if the two sides meet for good-faith negotiations. “I think the most important thing right off the bat is to sit down and start talking about teachers once again,” Smith said. “If people would sit down and read the contract, it wasn’t like it was this evil being. It really did set the parameters for what makes a good learning environment.”

If the union wants to send me a letter agreeing with all items we placed before them during our negotiations last year (e.g. no collection of union dues, we will not run union money through the district so union organizers can participate in government retirement programs) and also withdraws its request for intervention by the governor and agrees that it is inappropriate for the union to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to elect preferred board members, I will review that letter at that time.

teachers have chosen. The board decided to silence that 6o percent (of the teachers); I think that’s why we’re in this situation we’re in today. We’re in a war for talent. So would I consider negotiating a bargaining agreement if that’s what it takes to attract the best talent? I think I would have to. But if we offered them a more collaborative environment, then possibly a CBA isn’t necessary. Jim Geddes: I’m anti-union, particularly in education. I think they have played an important role in the deterioration of our K-12 education nationally because they place teachers first instead of students. We need to keep our teachers satisfied and in the best possible professional environment we can, because they are our greatest asset. But the union is more about how the teachers can serve the union. It’s a vehicle for some sociological platforms I don’t agree with. So no, I would not be interested in sitting down with them.

Bill Hodges: I’m not in favor of a collective bargaining agreement. There are other ways to get people at the table to talk about their issues and concerns.

Molester sentenced for recent assault Parker man gets 10 years to life behind bars Staff report A judge handed down a sentence to a Parker man convicted of sexual assault on a child while on probation for a similar crime. Jose Nael McCarthy-Dawson, 32, will spend 10 years to life behind bars for assaulting the 10-year-old daughter of a woman he McCarthymet online. Dawson McCarthy-Dawson was on probation for a prior sexual assault on a child and was already a registered sex offender when he committed the recent crimes at his home in Parker. The 18th Judicial District

Have an event?

Attorney’s office says McCarthyDawson was “trolling” the Internet looking for a new victim while on lifetime probation for a 2005 guilty plea for “sexually touching a child.” “If ever there was a chance for someone to receive a life sentence, on a case like this, this is that case,” said Douglas County District Court Judge Paul King. The DA’s office says the case illustrates the danger of taking a stranger you meet online into a home with children without knowing who they are. Prosecutors said McCarthy-Dawson established a relationship with a woman whom he knew to have a daughter in order to have access to the child and victimize her. McCarthy-Dawson told the victim that she must not tell her mother about the assault. The 10-year-old child’s mother notified the Parker Police Department after learning of the assault.

news in a hurry Phone tracked to Parker home

A Douglas County Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to the Parker Police Department around 10 p.m. Oct. 5 to meet with a man who reported his phone stolen. The man said he was at LoDo’s Bar in Highlands Ranch with a friend. His iPhone 5s was sitting on the table when a blond female approached and talked to them. There were other people who stopped by his table and spoke with him and his friend. He could not find the phone when he was ready to leave. He wasn’t sure if the phone was taken intentionally or by mistake. He tracked his phone on his laptop to an address in the 11200 block of Glenmoor Court in Parker. The deputy responded to the house and spoke to a man who acknowledged being at LoDo’s earlier in the night with his girlfriend. The man appeared highly intoxicated and had slurred speech, according to the deputy’s report. The deputy asked them to go through their vehicle, purse, and the clothing they wore that night just to be sure they didn’t have the phone. The man said would empty his pockets, saying he had “noth-

ing to hide.” He reached into his left rear pocket and pulled out two cell phones. The man stared at the phones in his hand and said, “Why do I have two wallets?” and “The black one isn’t mine.” The victim decided not to press charges and the deputy did not have sufficient evidence that the phone was taken on purpose.

Irish flag goes missing

Deputies responded to the 8700 block of Hilltop Road Oct. 5 on a reported theft. The woman who called police said an Irish flag with a gold-colored flagpole was missing. She displayed the flag for a friend of Irish descent who recently died. The flag’s value was estimated at $35. It went missing from an agricultural/ranch property in which the victim displays several flags and other American patriotic signage near the roadway.

Oil poured down drain

At 10:30 a.m. Sept. 30, Parker police officers responded to the 16000 block of Trail Sky Circle on a report of oil being poured down a storm drain. A stormwater engineer technician with the Town of Parker was on scene because the oil had run into the

retention pond at the end of the street. South Metro Fire responded with a hazardous material unit. Police are looking for crime tips from the public.

Ring missing from Apex

About 4:10 p.m. Oct. 3, officers responded to Apex Jewelers on a report of theft. The reporting party stated a 50-year-old man came to the store to sell a ring to the store. The reporting party paid the man for the ring. When the man left, the reporting party noticed the ring was missing. The case is deactivated and police are looking for crime tips from the public.

Car hit with BB

Just after noon on Oct. 6, Parker police officers were dispatched to a criminal mischief incident occurring the prior day around 4:30 p.m. A man said he was driving when he heard a noise that sounded like something was hitting the side of his car. When he inspected the vehicle, he noticed a dent consistent with a BB on the driver’s side rear quarter panel. The case was deactivated and police are seeking tips from the public.

Fertilizer: arch enemy of waterways. Streams, lakes and reservoirs don’t need it. Your lawn may not need it, either. Fertilizer, like other products that serve a necessary purpose, can become a problem if misused. Most lawn fertilizers contain nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, represented by a three-number string on the front of the bag. Nutrient needs vary from lawn to lawn and can only be determined by testing the soil. If over-applied, rain carries away excess nutrients not needed by plants and washes them to the nearest waterway, causing excess algae growth that uses up vital oxygen for fish. Please take the time to have your soil tested to determine your lawn’s needs. This simple, small change in your lawn care makes a huge difference, not only to the health of your lawn but also to your nearby rivers, creeks and lakes.

Former school officials draft suggested policies Group shares concerns about current direction By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Eight former Douglas County School Board members concerned about the current board’s policies met Oct. 8 to draft recommended best practices for the group. Former board member Clare Leonard, who served three years on the board, called the meeting because of district-level changes she believes negatively affect the schools. “I just couldn’t stand by and see a fabulous school district disintegrate,” she said. Leonard said she extended invitations to 33 people on a list of 54 board members dating back to the district’s 1958 founding; contact information was not available for 14 of them and seven have died. County resident Gail Schoettler, Colorado’s former Democratic lieutenant governor and former Douglas County School Board president, chaired the hour-and-a-half meeting at Franktown’s Pikes Peak Grange. The group plans to send its document to the board of education, and distribute it via social media and to news outlets. They hope voters will hold current and future boards accountable to the practices, and that the recommendations are a model for other school districts to follow.

Past Douglas County School Board members and residents at an Oct. 8 meeting included, counterclockwise from the top, Gail Schoettler, Emily Hansen, Jacqueline Killian, Bob Kaser, David Leonard, Pieter Kallemeyn, Bob Clearwater and Ken Buckius. Photo by Jane Reuter While those in attendance held similar concerns about the district, some who declined to come condemned the gathering. “I have absolutely no interest in participating in the kangaroo court/pro union love fest you will be conducting,” wrote former board member Dan Gerken, who resigned from the current board in January, in an email to Leonard. Gerken added: “That a meeting like this would occur just before an election when

the meeting’s organizers have been largely silent for years tells me that this is all political theater intended to promote union candidates.” Gerken said he was proud of the current board’s accomplishments, including ending the partial payment of some union employees’ salaries and the revamped pay-for-performance program. The group’s topics of focus included partisanship, executive sessions, budget

policies, school choice, relationships with teachers and collaborative decision-making. Jacqueline Killian said the outcome of the Nov. 5 election won’t necessarily stem concerns about the influence of partisan politics. “What is so concerning to me is the polarization we could potentially be facing a month from now,” Killian said. “That is not better than today. The only way you’re going to get there is if you put aside your partisan positions.” Several cited concerns about lengthy executive sessions and reduced public comment time. “There’s also a lack of decorum in the way in which parents and the general community are treated,” said Emily Hansen, who lost her seat in the 2009 election to current board member Meghann Silverthorn. Pieter Kallemeyn said he’d like to see more public involvement in major decisions, saying the voucher program introduced in 2011 “was sprung on the community.” The former board members also want a more transparent budgeting process. Herman Anderson doesn’t think current school leaders will consider the policy recommendations. “It isn’t going to do any good to go to the board,” he said. “They’re just going to ignore it. We’re talking to the voters.”

opinions / yours and ours

Join effort to combat domestic violence October is a supercharged month. The media is frantically covering election issues on top of other breaking news. Families are busy, busy. Students are buckling down in their studies and diving into extracurricular activities. School boards and other decision-making groups are in full swing. Sports — pro and local — are pulsing everywhere. People are striving toward their goals and working hard. Everything that was in neutral in August is in high gear. This is why it’s important to wave our arms in the air once in a while to suggest a timeout to be aware of ways to help others. We don’t highlight every awareness month — especially given that many months have upward of a dozen important causes — but we want to take a minute to point out that October is Domestic

our view Violence Awareness Month. This one has been with us more than two decades, has grown in many ways and continues to be so urgently important. We urge readers to take time to learn more about domestic violence and consider a few statistics available from domesticviolencestatistics.org. • Every nine seconds in the United States a woman is assaulted or beaten. • Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women — more than car accidents, muggings and rapes combined.

New washing machine leads to wild agitation I have a new washing machine. I don’t understand it. It is a High Efficiency washing machine, which means it takes five minutes to figure out the composition and scale of the load before a single drop of water enters the tub. It makes noises. It clicks and hums and pauses, and then it pulses and chortles. It wheezes. It sounds like Raymond Burr after a full meal. I had to buy a new machine because my old one decided to have a stroke. I came home one day and found water all over my wood floor. Right now the floorboards are cupping. When the boards crown, the floor will be tested for moisture content, and when it is low enough, it will be sanded and refinished. That will take two days. When my builder’s-grade dishwasher exploded, I had to leave the house for three days. A lot has happened in the wood floor refinishing industry since then. The key word now is “dustless.” When the floor was sanded after the dishwasher’s death, they put up plastic sheeting everywhere, but it didn’t matter. The dust found its way into the living room, upstairs, into closets, everywhere. Being a homeowner is a constant adventure. One thing is repaired or replaced and another needs to be. There are major projects and minor ones. I need a new fence. We all do around here. I live near Cresthill Lane. Some fencing has been replaced and some fencing needs to be, so it is really Eyesore Lane. I moved here in 1993. Some homes in the subdivision are even older. There are a lot of rentals, and there has been a big turnover. What was verboten by the HOA in 1993 is now commonplace. Those basketball stands, for example. Indoors, I think we have all had to update and replace. I bought my last Maytag in 1993, and it lasted until late summer. If I had the smarts to replace it in mid-summer, I’d still have a wood floor that wasn’t cupping. But it’s kind of like leaving a pitcher in the game one batter too many. And that could be a metaphor for a lot of things, even marriages. You keep hoping it will improve. Instead it gets worse, and acri-

monious. I loved my washing machine, if that is possible. I wrote that it was a friend, actually, dependable, and always ready to help out. I needed to take it behind the barn and shoot it. By the way, there is a brand of dog food called Old Yeller. What an awful name. Someone in branding must be a cat lover, or simply have a macabre sense of things. I can’t watch that movie. There are a lot of movies that I can’t watch. No action films allowed here. Nothing with too many special effects. That eliminates half. Nothing that glamorizes alcohol or drugs. Lots of swearing loses me too. I would rather watch “This Old House” than 90 percent of the movies that are released these days. Those guys know exactly what to do with balky problems in the home. I no longer try to repair things myself. I wind up compounding the problem. I have to buy special detergent for the new washer. There is no agitator in the tub, so it looks kind of odd in there, actually like a dryer. I loaded the new washer exactly as I did the deceased one, and that’s not the way to do it, I found out. If you don’t load evenly with like-clothes (jeans with jeans, towels with towels), the load will be unbalanced in spin, and the sounds it makes are horrendous, and will — and did — scare the dog. It sounded like Raymond Burr pounding on the front door.

Many of you have written us letters endorsing a candidate or taking a stance on a ballot issue as the Nov. 5 election approaches. We appreciate these letters to the editor and many of them have run on our opinion pages over the past few weeks. It is important to note that while Nov.

5 is officially “Election Day,” this is an allmail-in election. As such, we will not be running letters of endorsement after the Oct. 24 or 25 (depending on the publication you receive) edition. The impact of such letters would be minimal with most voters already having cast their ballots. As always, thank you for reading. — Chris Rotar, editor

economy seems to be on a good line — far improved from the stock market crash of September 2008 — but so many people are not clear of tough years. As surely as domestic violence is portrayed on so many TV crime shows, the problem continues in our neighborhoods. So please take a few moments to learn more about the problem. Think about how to be a source for people who need help — all kinds of help — and how to help others sort out options and move forward. We urge readers to visit ccadv.org (Colorado Coalition Against Domestic Violence) to identify local connections. Most organizations need contributions for programs and most need volunteers in a variety of human service programs. Take a few moments, see how you can help.

letters to the editor Time to restore schools’ excellence

Four years ago, four school board members were elected based on a platform promoting the need to address failing schools. The problem, of course, is that our schools had excellent reputations. Since 2009, Douglas County School District has lost its first place rankings in reading, writing and math, has lost its accreditation with distinction status and has made high school students part-time students. Tragically, “tumultuous” has replaced the descriptor of “excellence” for our schools. School board meetings, once open to the public 92 percent of meeting time, are now held behind closed doors nearly 50 percent of time. Inaccurate budgeting has led to unnecessary budget cuts. The once annual parent and employee surveys have been discontinued, and the last recognized survey was held in 2010 — more than three years ago. Parents, teachers and community members who dare to ask questions of the Board of Education are intimidated, belittled, and/or ignored. The recent trend has been to provide inaccurate and incomplete information to the public regarding instructional time, state assessment scores, and district rankings. Most recently, the fundraising arm of the district has become entangled in questionable political activity and refuses to be transparent in its dealings. Given the significant taxpayer dollars invested in our schools, this approach to operate as a political organization (as opposed to a public institution) is highly inappropriate and wrong. As Board President Carson recently noted, “local school boards have tremendous autonomy and authority over the school district, which is pretty unique in the country.” The only way to restore excellence to our schools is to elect new school

board members — do your research as the future of our community is at risk. I support Chase, Hodges, Keim, and Scholting as they have committed to restore excellence and to acknowledge, value and collaborate with all community members. Susan Meek Highlands Ranch

Teachers union fears choice

Teachers are important and should have a voice in the education of our children. In the end, however, they should not be the sole architects of how our education system works. Neither is the teachers union, which is only interested in students when their objectives happen to coincide, like on smaller class sizes. The teachers union is deathly afraid of choice, since that will break their monopoly. Similarly they are critical of anything that measures teacher’s effectiveness and student achievement, because this will lead to individual accountability, and the union is all about the collective, not the individual. Anyone that thinks the union has the best interests of students in mind should look at the top 100 worst schools in the nation. Public schools in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, pre-Katrina New Orleans, Philadelphia, and Chicago are the products of union-controlled school boards that value and protect teachers over students. That’s why the union-backed candidates are unwilling to make their positions public and openly debate the issues. The truth behind their motivations would be exposed, and it is not your child’s education. William Henning Highlands Ranch Letters continues on Page 9

from the editor A note on letters of endorsement

• Studies suggest that up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually. We know the road to recovery for someone suffering domestic violence is long, challenging and costly. Often a woman leaves an abusive spouse numerous times before securing a safe, independent setting. For many women, the hope is that the situation will get better, so they keep trying to work it out. The journey typically involves advocacy services, emergency shelters, transitional housing, support groups and legal advice. Most domestic violence victims are short on resources, and in a situation where a lot of assistance is needed — which is why funding is so important. Further, we know from surveys that domestic violence spikes during sluggish economies. For now, the arc of the

Start now to plan for success in 2014 This is the time of year where I am having conversations and planning sessions with corporate clients and individuals as we set expectations, set budgets, and plan for the success in the coming year. It seems like this year I am finding myself in more of these types of conversations than I have had in previous years. So I started to really think about it and questioned myself regarding my own plans for my personal success. I mean if companies can complete their plans and budgets months in advance of the next year, and I have certain individual clients I coach who do the same, why aren’t I better at following my own advice when it comes to

planning for success? Like many people I speak with, the planning for our individual success starts to take shape around December, with many people waiting until the end of

December, like maybe even New Year’s Eve. How would next year be different if we took out our notebook or computer and started sketching out our plans, goals, desires, and dreams for next year right now, today? My experience in working with companies and individuals has also proven that as we take the time to carefully work through the planning phase, each element of the plan takes on a life of its own and the thoughts and ideas become inspired and fueled with creative energy. Even though we set plans in place, agree on budgets, and action items, it is still very much an iterative process. This happens

as new ideas are formed or changes that may be occurring in the workplace, at home, with the economy or even around the world impact how we see our future and our future successes or achievements. How are you doing with planning your own success for 2014? Are you planning and preparing to win? I would love to hear all about it at gotonorton@gmail.com and as you plan your own success it will be a better than good week.

Stay focused on goal despite Washington There is a lot of news to fill up the 24-7 media slots this month. Therefore investors fear there is a lot to worry about. It is always a bit unsettling to hear your government went into shutdown mode. What is surprising is that most of the financial markets remain relatively calm so far. The debt ceiling, The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Fed tapering are on the table in Washington right now. The debt ceiling may escalate to a default on U.S. government bonds and the bulk of ACA may need to be postponed. The Fed tapering now will be carried out perhaps by the new Fed chairperson, Janet Yellen. There are a lot of changes going on. Let’s see how they are affecting your investments. Whether you hold assets in a retirement plan or an after-tax brokerage account, you have likely noticed that your fixed income investments, namely bonds, are down in value this year. This decline was triggered in May when there was first rumored talk about when the Federal Reserve Board will start to taper off their massive monthly bond purchases. This is surprising to many analysts, since the Fed clearly stated over a year ago that they would be transparent in their decision-making process. They would

make gradual changes as we approached lower unemployment and higher inflation. There has been no action at the Fed, since neither of these mandates have been met. The sympathetic decline in bond prices, in anticipation of when the Fed does taper, occurred quickly and has not let up much in the last six months. This leaves many bond investors in a quandary as what if anything they should do. The good news is the alter-ego of the bond is the yield, and those are gradually rising. Therefore if you don’t need to liquidate a bond right now and are enjoying the higher yield then perhaps you can sit tight if your bond positions are high quality and in the right amount for your overall diversification. Eventually, all of this turmoil in Wash-

ington will affect economic growth and hence stock prices as well. What is interesting though is that the stock market historically experiences a 10 percent or greater correction about once every 12 months. As of this writing we were only down about 4 percent from record highs showing a fairly calm reaction to Capitol Hill so far. However, since we are overdue for a pullback, the debt ceiling may be a good excuse to trigger one. The equities markets usually move in cycles regardless of the catalyst. Over longer-term trends, we do see investors being rewarded for taking measured risk. Volatility comes into the market when there is uncertainty, hence our current state of affairs. Statistics show that even after the worst of the Great Recession, it still paid for investors to remain calm and fully invested in a well-diversified portfolio. Fidelity Investments conducted a survey that compared balances of 401(k) plan participants nearly three years after the Lehman crisis. Plan participants who dropped their equity allocation to zero between Oct. 1, 2008, and March 31, 2009, and kept it there experienced an average

2 percent increase in their 401(k) account balances through the second quarter of 2011. Investors who maintained their allocation to stocks during the above period show average account balance increases of 50 percent. The same survey shows that 401(k) participants who continued contributing during the downturn experienced average account increases of 64 percent, compared to average account increases of 26 percent for investors who stopped contributing completely. The message is that is pays to have a strategy that helps keep you focused on the ultimate goal. Don’t let Washington rob you of future potential in your portfolio.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Continued from Page 8

‘Soccer mom’ remark insulting

I am writing to respond to Mike Rosen’s comments about us “Naive, soccer moms.” Mr. Rosen has insulted mothers across Douglas County by denigrating our intelligence and opinions and issuing condescending statements that appear to indicate that he has a loftier perch from which to offer his enlightened perspective over ours. Many of us Douglas County soccer moms make a serious effort to educate ourselves about the important issues facing our schools, especially in light of the upcoming board elections. I believe Mr. Rosen has completely underestimated the commitment we soccer moms have to illuminate the motives of the current school board, teachers and the union, and if Meghann Silverthorn even marginally agrees with his opinions and ideas about us, “nice, well-meaning, naive soccer moms,” I’d like to question her current source of information regarding the women in our district.

School reporting unbiased

I have been meaning to write this letter for quite some time; but Jesse Chuhta’s letter finally spurred me to do it. I wanted to thank Jane Reuter for her factual, unbiased reporting on Douglas County School District issues. There were many instances where her reporting confirmed what I had heard as rumors. That makes a concerned Douglas County voter like me stand up and take notice. To the comment from Jesse Chuhta asserting that Ms. Reuter’s reporting is biased, I must respond that just because

you disagree with the facts as stated or hold sway to the side that looks underhanded does not make the journalism biased. I hope that Ms. Reuter will continue to report the facts in this ongoing fiasco in the Douglas County schools. Hank Wotli Parker

Bravo for art removal

I applaud the mayor’s recent removal of a bronze melting earth sculpture from the town hall. Removing the sculpture sends the message that the mayor and arguably his supporters don’t subscribe to the fraud, hoax and deceptions propagated by global warming alarmists. Let not carbon footprints disturb our sleep, rather fear the nightmares of environmental activists teaching false science and beating their opponents with the club of “environmental correctness.” It is Randy Reed and his artist friends who want to “outrageously censor” the voice of reason and common sense, and I wonder why your newspaper gave a banner headline to their shrill voices. Maybe they’re not just a strident fringe group that gets headlines out of proportion to their size. Still I hope the citizens of Castle Rock by and large support the mayor’s sanity and judgment in this matter. We moved to Castle Rock from the Denver Metro just last October and we are glad to breathe some fresh air at last and meet some neighbors with decent conservative traditional views regarding family, property, morality and the role of government. We are no longer surrounded by the ugliest most wretched public sculptures that pass for art. Might I suggest to Mayor Donahue that he next demolish that hideous yellow tin can totem pole that visibly mars the city’s beauty in the vicinity of Perry Street and Sixth Avenue?

douglas county school board candidates

District B: Barbra Chase Roxborough resident Barbra Chase served as executive director of the Roxborough Elementary School Parent Teacher Involvement Committee that helped bring about the addition of Roxborough Intermediate. A software saleswoman, Chase also volunteers with the parent/teacher group at Ranch View Middle School. Chase is concerned about the district’s current state and the impact of recent policy changes, including cuts to electives, growing class sizes and loss of instructional time at the high school level. Describing herself as Chase a passionate advocate of Douglas County schools, she says she’d like to remove any political influence from local education. Colorado Community Media asked three identical questions of each candidate. Here are Chase’s answers. Why are you seeking this position? I would like to address several issues of concern, including the flat to declining assessment scores, record-low teacher morale and inaccurate budgeting. I have neighbors and friends who have moved out of Douglas County because of these concerns. The board of education and superintendent’s unwillingness to recognize and address these real problems is of great concern. Douglas County School District has a long history of excellence and innovation and this legacy is now at risk; I would like to be part of the solution. What makes you the best person for the job? I am a 23-year resident of Douglas

County. I have two children in Douglas County schools — one in seventh and the other in ninth grade. Having been an executive of Parent Teacher Groups in DCSD since 2005 and helping to raise $500,000 for our schools over that time period, I understand the current state of school funding and the priorities of parents on how funding is best spent. I’ve attended SAC, DAC and board meetings and understand what benefits our kids for the best education possible. What do you believe is the most important issue facing the Douglas County School District and how will you approach it, if elected? Over the past four years, there has been a reallocation of funds away from classrooms and into district administration. The lack of classroom resources is an issue that needs to be addressed immediately. According to Colorado Department of Education statistics, the number of district administrators has increased 10 percent along with student numbers. However, teacher numbers have declined 1 percent resulting in an 11 percent increase in class sizes. Over the past four years, high school students have lower graduation requirements, nearly three weeks less classroom time in each class, and larger class sizes. This troubling trend needs to be addressed. I would work to restore resources to our schools through accurate budgeting. I would restore our high schools to full-time, reduce student/teacher ratios and increase instructional time to better prepare our students for college/careers. I would bring the public back to our public schools by addressing plummeting parent satisfaction.

District B: Jim Geddes Already well-versed in education policies as a University of Colorado Regent, Jim Geddes now wants to turn his attention to K-12 education. The surgeon and Sedalia resident describes himself as a strong conservative who will apply those principles on the board. He is a proponent of school choice, including the district’s voucher program, and the current board’s other reform efforts. Geddes said he will consider students first in his decisions, and work to assure teachers’ job satisfaction. Geddes’ two youngest children attend Cherry Hills Christian School. Geddes His regent post expires in 2015; he does not plan to seek another term. Colorado Community Media asked three identical questions of each candidate. Here are Geddes’ answers. Why are you seeking this position? Providing a high quality education for our children is one of our most important societal responsibilities. After spending 30 years as a student and observing my children’s education experience — and simultaneously watching our nation’s young people fall further behind those of other developed countries, I chose to become directly involved in efforts to improve our education systems. As a University of Colorado Regent, I’ve addressed issues including budgeting and financing of higher education, and the evaluation and assessment of the quality of education. I encourage improvements in quality, such as augmenting intellectual diversity and academic freedom on our campuses. What makes you the best person for

District D: Julie Keim A parent of three and a certified professional accountant, Julie Keim has helped raised thousands of dollars volunteering with Parent Teacher Organizations. She served on Larkspur Elementary’s Parent Teacher Organization board after the family moved there in 2004 and helped launch PTOs at Castle Rock Middle and Castle View High schools. Along the way, she learned about the district and observed a shift in teachers’ attitudes that prompted her to join the school board race. Keim also has studied the district’s finances, publicly criticizing the size of the fund balance and ques- Keim tioning the budget’s accuracy. Colorado Community Media asked three identical questions of each candidate. Here are Keim’s answers. Why are you seeking this position? I am running for the school board to restore excellence and encourage effective innovation in DCSD. I have seen our schools lose the collaboration and inspiration that made DCSD outstanding. Our public schools have eroded due to lack of effective and supportive leadership, proper guidance and funding. We can provide a great public education while being financially responsible. Through responsible oversight, I plan to restore fiscal integrity; sufficient funding in classrooms; safe, trusting environments where students and educators can be successful; multiple perspectives and public input to decision-making; successful implementation of strategies; and, focus to our most valuable asset, students. What makes you the best person for the job? I have volunteered to support pub-

lic education for 15 years. I understand the challenges our students, schools and district face, and will work hard to ensure that priorities are discussed, real and feasible solutions are established, and successfully piloted and implemented. I will challenge our district to provide the best education for all students. My background in governmental auditing, consulting, and as a finance director for a $2B public entity afford me the financial and operations expertise to lead the district through the public engagement, human resource and financial issues that have arisen over the last few years. What do you believe is the most important issue facing the Douglas County School District and how will you approach it, if elected? I believe the biggest issue facing DCSD is ineffective oversight at the board level resulting in the district’s inability to successfully implement programs and strategies. One example is board members having no questions or concerns about significant deficiencies in audits and variances between budget and actual amounts amounting to $20 million (after all carryover dollars were removed) last year alone. Inaccurate budgeting has led to unnecessary cuts that have weakened our schools. Another example of lackluster oversight is the absence of public input and meaningful dialogue and discussion among seven like-minded board members. I believe only through open-minded consideration of differing viewpoints can the DCSD board make well-informed decisions for the students and taxpayers of Douglas County and provide the necessary oversight required of their positions. I believe it is our responsibility to educate all children to become the best citizens and leaders in our community and nation.

the job? I have a long personal experience with formal education and have learned significantly from my experience as a regent. My general “conservative” and “traditional” philosophy will help guide our school district toward further improvements in its education quality, and toward an enhanced service to our students, their families, and the citizens of Douglas County. I have a practical/pragmatic streak, but can also think “outside the box.” Additionally, the thoughts and concerns of others are important to me, and will be carefully considered. What do you believe is the most important issue facing the Douglas County School District and how will you approach it, if elected? The key component of education quality and successful outcomes is related to individual teacher qualities. Important for all student ages, but most critical for our younger students is a teacher who creates an exciting, rich educational environment which produces eager learners who enjoy school and thirst for intellectual interactions with others. Such an experience if sustained will likely lead to an excellent educational outcome and a life-long habit of inquiry, study, and capability for sophisticated critical thinking. In this light, I will fully support the current DCSD initiatives of teacher “Pay for Performance” and the honoring and rewarding of our excellent teachers. I will also search for additional mechanisms to recruit such teachers to our schools. I will be sensitive to our teachers’ professional recommendations, needs, and desires as our Board of Directors partners with them to create the optimal educational milieu for all our students.

District D: Judi Reynolds A member of the District Accountability Committee since May 2012, Judi Reynolds wants to elevate her position with the district to school board member. Reynolds has a master’s degree in education and previously worked as an exercise physiologist. The mother of three is now a stay-athome mom and active classroom volunteer. In addition to her experience with the DAC, the Castle Rock resident has spent the last four years regularly attending school board meetings. During those four years, Reynolds believes the district has regained secure financial footing, and en- Reynolds acted common-sense reforms that benefit teachers and students. Colorado Community Media asked three identical questions of each candidate. Here are Reynolds’ answers. Why are you seeking this position? I am running for the Board of Education in Douglas County because I believe education should revolve around students first. As a community, it is vital that we find a way for every student to have an education that is relevant to them. This is best achieved by allowing parental choice, building control of money and curriculum, and increased educational opportunities and options for our students. Parents and teachers, working together, are the best resources to provide creative and innovative ways to give our children a better education. What makes you the best person for the job? I have been an active parent in my

children’s schools since 2004. My children attend neighborhood elementary, middle and high schools, giving me a unique perspective of educational needs at all levels. In addition to volunteering in my children’s classrooms and participating in PTO fundraising and community events, I am active in two School Accountability Committees and currently serve as the Recorder for the District Accountability Committee. I have regularly attended Board of Education meetings for the last four years because I felt it was important to be informed about who and how decisions affecting my children’s education were made. What do you believe is the most important issue facing the Douglas County School District and how will you approach it, if elected? Local Control. This issue reaches into every part of education from how are schools are financed, unfunded mandates for curriculum from the state and federal governments, and testing. The state has created several new laws that school districts are required to abide by, even if they were created to solve a problem the DCSD does not have. Recently, the state adopted House Bill 121238: The Colorado READ Act. The READ Act imposes new assessments on DCSD students, even though they have some of the highest reading scores in the metro area. I will continue to fight for local control, so that DCSD can concentrate on serving our student’s needs, not complying with assessments or programs that our students do not need. I will work with local schools and groups, legislators, and speak out at the State House on issues I think are important to Douglas County students, teachers, and parents.

douglas county school board candidates

District E: Doug Benevento Doug Benevento is seeking to remain on the Douglas County School Board. An attorney for Xcel Energy, Benevento is a Colorado native who has led the state health department and was senior policy adviser for U.S. Sen. Wayne Allard. His two daughters attend Platte River Academy charter school. A strong supporter of education reform, Benevento wants to continue and improve upon the programs it’s launched. While acknowledging the road hasn’t always been smooth, Benevento says facts show the district is moving in Benevento the right direction. Colorado Community Media asked three identical questions of each candidate. Here are Benevento’s answers. Why are you seeking this position? Because of my two daughters, Anna and Kate, who attend public school in the district. Anna’s in third grade and Kate is in kindergarten and watching them develop, grow and learn is a great joy. What I want for my children is what I want for every child in Douglas County, a wide array of educational choices, a school district focused on their learning instead of labor unions and for great teachers to be recognized and rewarded through pay for performance system. Nothing less is acceptable, either for my children or anyone else’s children. What makes you the best person for the job?

I believe parents are in the best position to make decisions for their children and we need to provide them with multiple educational choices. I also believe that we run a school district for kids, not union bosses. While HR director at the district my opponent was responsible for moving hundreds of thousands of dollars from the classroom into the pocket of union leaders who performed no work in the district. Our kids can’t afford to put him in a position where he can go back taking money from the classroom to pay union leader to organize a union. What do you believe is the most important issue facing the Douglas County School District and how will you approach it, if elected? 1. Funding the classroom — My opponent was HR director for the district when it paid over $300,000 of salaries to union bosses who performed no work for the district. If elected there’s no doubt he would resume that practice. We can’t divert money from our kids and teachers to pay union organizers. 2. Pay for Performance — We need to pay our best teachers so we retain them and also attract the best teachers. As HR director in the district my opponent advocated a union approved wage scale which rewards our best teachers the same as our ineffective teachers. I will support a strong pay for performance system. 3. Choice — We need to offer and support multiple educational options for parents to choose from, neighborhood schools, charter schools, online schooling so that kids can be put in an environment that gives them the best chance to succeed.

District G: Ronda Scholting Ronda Scholting already knows the campaign trail from her successful 2012 bid for Parker Fire Protection District board. A public relations manager for the Denver-based RE/MAX real estate company, Scholting also is a former broadcast journalist with Denver’s KMGH-TV Channel 7. Her interest in running for the school board was sparked by district changes she’s seen since her sons graduated from DCSD, Scholting said. In addition to concerns about loss of instructional time at the high school Scholting level, she believes the district has financial reserves that could better be used in the classroom. Colorado Community Media asked three identical questions of each candidate. Here are Scholting’s answers. Why are you seeking this position? I’m running for school board because I’m concerned about where our tax dollars are going and whether the choices being made on the district level are truly benefiting the entire community. We are continually cutting teachers and resources in our classrooms, while growing administrative positions, which directs millions of dollars away from our students — exactly where those dollars do the most good. We need to restore resources and true innovation in our schools at every level, while still being fiscally responsible. And, we need to restore faith and trust in district leadership. Our community deserves nothing less. What makes you the best person for the job?

As an elected member of the Parker Fire Protection District Board, I’ve had the opportunity to serve the residents of the South Metro Fire Authority District, and join with fellow board members in closely watching taxpayer dollars while ensuring the district has the resources and personnel we need to keep our communities safe. With two boys who graduated from Douglas County Schools, I have a parent’s perspective on making choices for my children and the experience of working with teachers and building administrators to ensure their education is the best it can be. What do you believe is the most important issue facing the Douglas County School District and how will you approach it, if elected? Lack of transparency is a real problem in the district and we need to re-establish trust and confidence in district leadership. Parents, teachers, students and taxpayers all have a stake in public education. Their voices need to be heard, and taken seriously into consideration when the board makes decisions. Because the board spends nearly half of its meeting time behind closed doors, there is limited time for public input at board meetings. That needs to change. The public’s business should be conducted in public. Board members should treat all stakeholders with respect, no matter if they agree with what the board is doing or not. There should be more time allotted to hear public comment at each meeting and the board should actively reach out to the community, by regularly visiting our schools, and engaging with a non-partisan citizens’ advisory board, comprised of parents, teachers, taxpayers and students.

District E: Bill Hodges No stranger to Douglas County Schools, the district’s former human resources director Bill Hodges wants to sit in a different seat as a board member. Hodges worked in human resources from 2001 to 2011. His wife Ginger was a DCSD elementary school teacher. Though Hodges helped negotiate the teachers’ union’s annual collective bargaining agreement, he said he now would like to see a different form of teacher collaboration. In the mid-1990s, he served as a community representative on a committee that introduced the district’s first pay-for-performance Hodges program, an idea he still supports. Hodges believes new programs that were implemented too quickly and with inadequate teacher and community input have cost the district many of its teachers. That and other concerns about the district’s direction pulled him out of retirement and into the board race. Colorado Community Media asked three identical questions of each candidate. Here are Hodges’ answers. Why are you seeking this position? It’s time to change the status quo of how this current BOE operates. We need to put the “public” back into public education and allow all groups to be heard and respected. More board business needs to be conducted in the public vs. behind closed doors as is the current board practice. We need fiscal transparency, need to hire more teachers, reduce class size and increase graduation requirements. I’m

also a strong advocate for full-time kindergarten. What makes you the best person for the job? I have a unique perspective from my work experience. I have 28 years in the private sector — the final three in a financial consulting startup. I have 10 years public sector experience, including nine as DCSD’s Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources. I know how to balance a budget without creating excess balances and putting resources where needed; and, I know what a premier school district looks like. I also have a strong personal interest in DCSD with a daughter-in-law teaching, two children who graduated from DCSD, two grandchildren in the system and two smaller grandchildren who will attend DCSD. What do you believe is the most important issue facing the Douglas County School District and how will you approach it, if elected? Although there are many issues facing DCSD, the most important one in my mind is allowing all voices to be heard and respected. One shouldn’t be excluded because your views don’t align with the current board’s political agenda. I would increase public comment minutes. I would facilitate with other board members community focus groups to hear all concerns and issues. I would reinstate the district’s community survey as another way to gain stakeholder input for the board to consider. In evaluating the superintendent’s annual performance, a community, staff and student survey should be included as part of the evaluation process.

District G: Meghann Silverthorn With four years of school board experience behind her, Meghann Silverthorn is looking back with pride and forward to a hoped-for second term. The U.S. Department of Defense engineer is the only candidate for the Douglas County School Board who does not have children. Her varied childhood educational experiences, which included attendance at overseas schools, shaped her views of education. Silverthorn concluded the American education system needs improvement, and sees her board service as a way Silverthorn to enact some of those changes. The Parker resident is proud of the reforms the board has enacted, including its county-specific curriculum, and wants to continue moving them forward. Colorado Community Media asked three identical questions of each candidate. Here are Silverthorn’s answers. Why are you seeking this position? I am running for re-election because I believe in the work our district is doing for kids. We have become responsive to parents and students, providing them with more options than ever. We have radically improved the district’s financial situation. We have begun to pay teachers like professionals with true pay for performance. Douglas County has an incredible community with great teachers and staff, passionate parents and wonderful students. Public education is a cornerstone of our society and I am proud to support it.

What makes you the best person for the job? I have a complete understanding of all of the issues facing our district. I have worked with parents, teachers, students and community members throughout my tenure on various issues and concerns. In doing so, I have shown my ability to work with people of all viewpoints and backgrounds. Additionally, I am the only voice on the board representing the large majority of our community with no children in our district, a critical stakeholder group with which DCSD is beginning to communicate effectively. What do you believe is the most important issue facing the Douglas County School District and how will you approach it, if elected? Our district faces the large question of how to move education forward in a world that has vastly changed, and for kids who have also changed, since our educational system was designed. Our society has unprecedented access to information; education should move beyond content toward the individual learner. DCSD recognizes that kids are not “widgets” to be produced in batches as if they were all the same. Instead, they should be treated like the individuals they are, and DCSD is changing its system to accommodate this. If elected, I will continue to promote teacher quality, expand choices for parents and students, and champion academic achievement. The district has partnered with teachers to design an incredible system of performance and curriculum tailored to our community and what our kids need. Everything we are doing is designed to work for kids and their future.

School board election: the iSSueS

block-schedule impact changes struck some stirs continuing debate teachers as too hasty Longer off-periods, longer classes create both benefits and drawbacks By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com High school students saw the greatest impact of classroom-level changes implemented by the current Douglas County School Board. The 2012-13 introduction of a block schedule at Douglas County’s high schools was designed to lower class sizes, increase electives and cut costs. It also added a class to most high school teachers’ workloads. Most classes have expanded to 90 minutes each, as have off-periods common to juniors and seniors. Those whose days end with an offperiod finish classes by mid-day, instead of the previous schedule’s 2:50 p.m. dismissal time. With the conversion, high school students lost about 10 hours of instructional time per credit. Dan McMinimee, assistant superintendent of secondary education, said during a May 21 presentation to the Douglas County School Board that district-wide studies show the change to a block schedule succeeded in driving down class sizes with minimal impact to teachers’ planning time and student load — all while student achievement stayed high. However, much of the data used to support that conclusion was based only on freshmen — who are not allowed to leave school during the day and do not have off-periods. Some students said the longer offperiods are good preparation for the less traditional schedule of college, and give

them time to do homework during the day instead of in the evening. Some recent graduates said off-periods can send up a red flag to college admissions departments. According to McMinimee, college representatives said the block schedule is not cause for alarm. “My experience has been it’s never the type of schedule you’re on,” he said. “It’s the GPA, the test scores, the rigor of classes you take.” Some student said the rigor is harder to obtain under the block schedule because the most popular classes fill quickly, leaving them with limited options. Parent Chris Mascenaras said she paid about $1,000 to enroll her daughter in two online Advanced Placement classes. Dakota wanted to attend Stanford University, and the family felt she needed additional weighted classes not available to her at Douglas County High School to ensure her acceptance. “She realized she really needed to continue to have a rigorous, difficult schedule for a college like Stanford to even consider her,” Mascenaras said. “If it hadn’t been for her ambition, she would not have gotten in.” What colleges consider rigorous varies. According to www.internationalcollegecounselors.com, “there is no one deciding, defining scale for ‘rigor.’” “For the most selective colleges, students need to take the most rigorous curriculum available within their own high school,” the website reads. “If the high school does not offer AP courses or enough AP courses, know that colleges are aware of different situations that may restrict what courses can be taken. What they really expect that students excel in the opportunities to which they do have access.”

Pay-for-performance plan has been controversial By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com While some Douglas County School District teachers have publicly said they embrace recently introduced districtlevel changes, many have expressed frustration and anger to the school board. Statistics reflect only a 2 percentage point increase year-over-year in teacher turnover. In total, about 12 percent of the Douglas County School District’s teachers left their jobs this year, according to the district. In 2011-12, that number stood at 10 percent. Of those 413 teachers leaving the district this year, about a quarter retired; the remainder resigned. The changes are many, and include a shift in teacher methodology, new curriculum and an increased emphasis on technology. The greatest controversy has centered around the district’s payfor-performance plan, introduced in the 2012-13 academic year. District officials acknowledge their system is not yet perfect, but say its introduction was overall a success. Based on those evaluations, teachers are assigned a rating of highly effective, effective, partially effective or ineffective — with the highest pay raises awarded to the most effective educators. Raises are further determined by a teacher’s placement on the market-based pay scale, which sets salary based on the ease of hiring for specific positions. Many teachers said the new evaluation tool was introduced too hastily, faulting it as confusing and time-consuming. Rankings calculated against the market-

Shutterstock photo based scale meant some highly effective teachers received minimal raises. Statistical anomalies emerged at both ends of the scale, with a handful of schools having disproportionate numbers of teachers rated high or low. More than 71 percent of the district’s teachers fell into the “effective” category. The 2012-13 pay-for-performance program is not the first in the district. The Douglas County Federation of Teachers and the district together implemented a pay-for-performance plan — one of the first in the nation — in 1994. In 2011, the district and teachers’ union created a performance pay redesign committee, a joint that project ended when the relationship between the union and district fractured in mid-2012. Senate Bill 10-191 requires new evaluations statewide, with full implementation during the 2013-14 school year. The amount of each teacher’s raise also is based on where the teaching position falls on DCSD’s market-based pay scale, which sets salaries according to the ease with which the district can hire for a specific teaching assignment. For instance, a social studies or business teacher is offered a lower starting salary at DCSD than a science or Chinese language teacher.

Voucher program remains in limbo

Political factors loom large in board race

Opponents hope to take case to Colorado Supreme Court

Local, national groups share interest in election’s outcome

By Jane Reuter

By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Douglas County’s voucher plan, the Choice Scholarship Program, is in limbo. The program, legally challenged after its 2011 introduction, allows parents to use state-issued funds toward tuition at private schools. Most of the schools included in the program are religious. Denver District Court declared the program unconstitutional in August 2011, but the Colorado Court of Appeals issued the opposite opinion in February 2013. The program’s opponents, which include the American Civil Liberties Union and the nonprofit Taxpayers for Public Education, have asked the Colorado Supreme Court to take the case. It has not yet made a decision to do so. Until a decision is made, the pilot program is on hold. The voucher program was the first among several controversial changes introduced by the current school board. Opponents say it blurs the line between separation of church and state, and dilutes funding for public schools. “There’s one pot of money for the student in the state of Colorado,” Taxpayers for Public Education president Cindy Barnard said. “By diverting any money, we’ve decreased the funding for every student in the state of Colorado, not just Douglas County.” Supporters say the program offers parents another educational choice, and that the district maintains educational control by ensuring partner schools meet district testing standards. Michael Bindas, an attorney from the

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com

Shutterstock image Institute for Justice who’s representing three of the voucher families, said the program is not religious in nature. Only one of his three clients chose a religious school for their student. “There are two critical components to a constitutional school choice program,” he said after the Colorado Court of Appeals ruling. “The first is that it has to be religion neutral, (that) religious and nonreligious schools alike are free to participate in the program. “The second critical component is private choice. The fact is, under the program, not a penny flows to any school — religious or non-religious — but for the private and independent choice of parents.” Voucher opponents also cite concerns about involvement from outside national groups that some believe have a pro-privatization agenda. They believe it is patterned after model legislation from the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conservative group that supports limited government, free markets and federalism.

School boards and school board elections are intended to be nonpartisan, but in Douglas County, politics is tightly woven into the board race. One of the few places it will not be obvious is on the ballot, where school board candidates’ names do not include party affiliation. Aside from the mail-in ballot, however, it is anything but hidden. National conservative think tanks and other organizations that support the kind of education reform under way in Douglas County have invested heavily on all fronts, from large-scale advertising that includes TV ads and billboards to grassroots marketing methods such as door-to-door canvassing. The Douglas County Federation’s efforts have been less obvious, but union president Brenda Smith said the local affiliate had $40,000 earmarked for education on the election. She also said the American Federation of Teachers, DCF’s parent organization, traditionally has supported its local affiliates. The Douglas County Republicans have endorsed a slate of four candidates — two of them incumbents — after setting up an interview committee and sitting down with as many of the eight candidates as possible. The group endorsed all seven of the board members elected in 2009 and 2011. Though only one of the four candidates the party doesn’t support is a registered Democrat, the GOP is counting

on the strength of the county’s Republican base to garner votes for their preferred quartet. About 47 percent of the county’s registered voters identify themselves as Republicans, 20 percent as Democrats and 32 percent as unaffiliated, according to the Douglas County Clerk and Recorder’s Office. “It’s clear that being a Republican and being supported by the Republican Party is something voters value,” said Craig Steiner, who chairs the Douglas County Republicans. Local Democrats, meanwhile, have remained silent. “We don’t take the same approach because it’s nonpartisan,” chairman Mike Jones said. “If people ask us, we tell them to vote for those who support public education.” The Independence Institute, a Denver-based libertarian think tank, has paid for surveys and provides financial support to the pro-board DougCo Champions for Kids. Americans for Prosperity is financing the “It’s Working” ad campaign. The pro-board Douglas County Education Alliance is linked to groups supportive of conservative and libertarian causes. The conservative American Enterprise Institute also is connected to the election; its director of education policy is a paid Douglas County School District consultant. Some community members have tried to stem the role of politics in the local election. In August, the nonprofit Strong Schools Coalition gathered 1,000 signatures on an electronic petition aimed at limiting the role of politics in the Douglas County School Board race.

Recycling event sets records E-waste haul adds up to 150,000 pounds

“They are watching out for the future generations and getting rid of all the things that they have hanging around their house, in their drawers, that aren’t doing anything. You might as well do something responsible with it all.” After three straight years in Parker, the Oct. 5 event at Castle View High School marked the first time Castle Rock had hosted the event since 2009 when it was at the justice center. It also marked the first time the county was able to offer residents the ability to donate their old television sets and monitors for free after someone in the finance department discovered the solid waste fund could be used to cover the cost.

Volunteers at this year’s event spanned the generations and were made up of a mixture of students, adults, county employees and off-duty sheriff’s employees. They were all kept relatively busy too, as an unprecedented 1,325 cars rolled through the Castle View parking lot with their donations between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. The previous record haul of electronics was 120,000 pounds in 2008, just one year after the county filled just one 24-foot trailer with about 15,000 pounds. And while 30,000 pounds might not seem like that much of a difference, Ormsbee is quick to point out that “televisions were a lot bigger and heavier back then.” The event isn’t just about electronics, though, and every year the county has worked to add in another service, from partnering with nonprofits like Cell Phones for Soldiers, to finding a cause for monetary donations to go to, to adding a clothing drive to assist Goodwill, to offering document shredding.

fers teachers in continuing education, I’d love to know more about that. I firmly got the impression in the last few years that was lacking. I have absolutely no issue with individual teachers belonging to a union. It’s their prerogative to belong to whatever group they see benefit in. Ronda Scholting: It’s hard for me to say what I’m going to do on this issue if I am elected. Whatever decision is made has to be done with buy-in from everybody on the board. When I’ve been out talking to voters, I hear from parents that support the teachers association and parents that don’t. But they do support teachers at least being able to talk. The board has alienated them. I won’t

make that same mistake. If I am elected, I’m going to listen to everybody. Meghann Silverthorn: Under the leadership they have now, I’m not interested. I don’t think it’s a productive conversation to have, given the history of some things that have happened. I believe the district is doing a good job of working directly with teachers, given the involvement they’ve had with various initiatives, projects and ideas the district has advanced. Teachers have choices of professional organizations to which they choose to belong. They have the right to associate with whomever they like. The district also has choices about recognizing an organization for collective bargaining.

2013 record recycling numbers

By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ourcoloradonews.com Cars lined up as far as the eye could see, and after four hours, volunteers at this year’s Douglas County electronics recycling event watched as seven 52-foot trailers and two 24foot trucks drove off with an event record 150,000 pounds of e-waste. But that wasn’t it. According to Bill Ormsbee, the county’s IT service desk manager, who has been organizing the event since it was originated in 2007, the 50 volunteers who came out collected $5,200 in donations for Douglas County Search and Rescue, filled two-thirds of a 48-foot trailer with donations destined for Goodwill and shredded roughly 30,000 pounds of personal documents — all records. “To me it says the citizens are thinking more responsibly about how they get rid of things,” Ormsbee said.

Nubby woven shawls and jackets, sleek painted silk scarves, whimsical knitted hats, handsome table runners and small rugs, one-of-a-kind woven baskets, bright socks and mittens, linen and cotton towels and table linens and a table of holiday ornaments stand out. Knitters may be drawn to brightly colored alpaca yarn. It’s time for the Annual Rocky Mountain Weavers’ Fiber Arts Sale, a truly unique once-a-year event that offers contemporary products created through traditional craft techniques. Near the door, a member of the Rocky Mountain Weavers’ Guild may be demonstrating with a loom or spin-

creative family and recalls an experience while traveling in Norway where four women were knitting on intricately patterned sweaters and chatting a mile a minute. How in the world could they do that? An interest in fibers developed. A career in international trade and consultation with cross-cultural businesses followed and finally fizzled. She enrolled at the former Skyloom Fibers in Denver and learned to weave. She teaches at Recycled Lamb in Lakewood, at Lakewood’s Washington Heights Art Center and for the Wednesday Weavers, who meet at Augustana Lutheran Church. She also dyes yarn for Recycled Lamb and Treenway silks. She started weaving on a rigid heddle loom and graduated to a four-shaft loom, then to a 10-shaft Macomber — plus eight others in her studio. “There is a refuge in making things,” Bliss said. Meet her and other fine craftspeople at the Fiber Arts Sale. And perhaps score the perfect gift for someone near and dear — or for yourself.

‘Mestizo’ opens at Su Teatro Concert/play based on album from 1973 By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ ourcoloradonews.com In Denver, we were well aware of the Chicano civil rights movement, so the concert/play inspired by singer/songwriter Daniel Valdez’s album “Mestizo” should be of interest to many local theater lovers. A nationally recognized artist, Valdez is artist in residence at Su Teatro Cultural and Performing Arts Center in the Santa Fe Arts District through a grant. He will sing songs from the album, and the play created around it is written by longtime Su Teatro director and play-

Here are some local spots that are thinkin’ pink: Sage Restaurant Group’s Denver-area eateries are having various deals to take a bite out of breast cancer. Throughout the month of October each restaurant will offer pink doughnuts where a portion of proceeds from each doughnut sold will benefit the Denver affiliate of Susan G.

Chef Richard Sandoval’s restaurants, Zengo, La Sandia and Tamayo, are honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month in partnership with the Susan G. Komen Foundation by donating $1 from the featured drink, Pink Ribbon Agua Fresca, which will be offered through Oct. 31 for $4. Made with fresh watermelon, this traditional Mexican non-alcoholic drink is refreshing and filled with antioxidants. This beverage is one of Sandoval’s favorites since it was a beverage that was served at his grandmother’s dining room table. It’s a drink that not only honors one of the most important women in his life but it also pays homage to his Mexican roots.

It’s Brothers eatery opens in Lone Tree Owners ‘pulled out all stops’ on bar and grill By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com Marc and Eric Fortney went all out during construction of their first free-standing restaurant. On Oct. 10, they opened the doors to the It’s Brothers Bar & Grill in Lone Tree, the 17th restaurant in the familyowned chain. “We pulled out all the stops,” Marc Fortney said. “A lot of planning went into this.” Though the two-story, sports-themed restaurant opened during football season, its setup is strongly skewed toward summer. Ground- and upper-level patios illuminated by strung lights are dotted with standing heaters, and a large outdoor fireplace anchors the main-floor outdoor area. Four bocce courts open for free play flank the building’s north side. The outdoor emphasis not only expands the restaurant’s 400-plus seating capacity, it’s a visual lure to passersby on Quebec Street. The site formerly was home to the Claim Jumper, a restaurant known for its oversized portions that closed in late 2010. Marc Fortney, the extroverted face of the company, said he first considered renovat-

ing the original space. “I thought it was a spectacular building for a country-western bar,” he said. “It would have cost more to retrofit than to build.” It’s Brothers is designed as a restaurant, sports bar and nightclub. “We want to be a sports bar, but we also want to be more than that,” Marc Fortney said. “As the night goes on, you’re going to hear the music ramp up. If people want to shake a little bit, we’ve got a dance floor.” Wisconsin natives Marc and Eric Fortney opened their first bar in the college town of LaCrosse, Wis. in 1990. Marc Fortney points to their self-employed parents as the source of their entrepreneurial spirit, but said the brothers knew their age could be a hindrance. At the time of that first opening, the two were 26 and 23. “When we looked at this first bar in LaCrosse, we knew we needed credibility in the marketplace because we were so young,” Marc Fortney said. His parents suggested not only the name “Brothers,” but added “Est. 1967” to the moniker. It’s not the year the company started, but the year Eric Fortney was born and the lifelong partnership began. Marc Fortney takes pride in the company’s scratch kitchens and a menu designed to change with the seasons.

The court shall make certain that the respondent(s) understand the following: (1) The nature of the allegations contained in the petition; (2) As a party to the proceeding, the right to counsel; (3) That if the respondent(s) is a parent, guardian, or legal custodian, and is indigent, the respondent may be assigned counsel as provided by law. (4) The right to a trial by jury; (5) That any admission to the petition must be voluntary; (6) The general dispositional alternatives available to the court if the petition is sustained, as set forth in Section 19-3-508, C.R.S.; (7) That termination of the parent-child legal relationship is a possible remedy which is available if the petition is sustained; (8) That if a motion to terminate the parent-child legal relationship is filed, the court will set a separate hearing at which the allegations of the motion must be proven by clear and convincing evidence; (9) That termination of the parent-child legal relationship means that the subject child would be available for adoption; (10) That any party has the right to appeal any final decision made by the court; and (11) That if the petition is admitted, the court is not bound by any promises or representations made by anyone about dispositional alternatives selected by the court. (b) The respondent(s), after being advised, shall admit or deny the allegations of the petition. (c) If a respondent(s) admits the allegations in the petition, the court may accept the admission after making the following finding: (1) That the respondent(s) understand his or her rights, the allegations contained in the petition, and the effect of the admission; (2) That the admission is voluntary. (d) Notwithstanding any provision of this Rule to the contrary, the court may advise a non-appearing respondent(s) pursuant to this Rule in writing and may accept a written admission to the petition if the respondent has affirmed under oath that the respondent(s) understands the advisement and the consequences of the admission, and if, based upon such sworn statement, the court is able to make the findings set forth in part (c) of this Rule. This summons is being initiated by the Douglas County Department of Human Services through its counsel.

The fee will be paid at the time of platting and be based upon the number of units. A community clubhouse would be surrounded by lots measuring at least 4,800 square feet. The maximum building height allowed is 35 feet. According to public referral comments from the Colorado Historical Society’s Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation, an archaeological study has not been conducted on the land. “There is the possibility that as yet unidentified cultural resources exist within the proposed impact area,” the society said. “Therefore, in the event there is federal or state involvement, we recommend that a professional survey be conducted to identify any cultural resources in the project area, which are eligible to be listed in the National Register of Historic Places.”

GALLERY OF GAMES & weekly horoscope

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) A bid for you to step in and take over an incomplete project could prove to be an excellent learning experience that you can take with you when a new opportunity opens up. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) It’s a good time for socializing, both with family and with friends. Your aspects also favor developing new relationships, any or all of which might become especially meaningful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your success in handling a recent difficult situation prompts a request to handle another workplace problem. But this is one you should accept only if you get all of the relevant facts.

GALLERY OF GAMES

CANCER (Jun 21 to July 22) New information about a past decision raises some unsettling questions from an old friend. Be prepared to explain your actions fully and, if necessary, to make adjustments. LEO (July 23 to Aug 22) This is not a good time to share personal secrets, even with someone you’ve known for a long while. What you don’t reveal now won’t come back to haunt you later. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) Pushing yourself to meet a project deadline is admirable. But be careful not to leave out important details in your rush to complete your work and send it off. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Watch that you don’t take on more than you can handle when offering to help someone with a personal problem. There might be hidden factors you weren’t told about. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) That major move you’ve been considering could come sooner than you expected. Make sure you’ll be ready with the facts you need when decision time arrives. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Languishing relationships can benefit from a break in routine. Get out of the rut and do something new and maybe more than a little unpredictable this weekend. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) Although you don’t think of yourself as a role model, your ability to make a tough decision at this time sets an example for others, who admire your courage. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) You need to move any remaining obstacles out of your way before you can take on a new challenge. Seek advice from close, trusted friends and associates. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) A career change appears increasingly likely to happen during the next several weeks. It’s a good idea to start now to prepare, so you can be ready to make the move when the time comes. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a strong sense of obligation to justice, which inspires others to follow your example and do the right thing. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Arapahoe Road, at 7 p.m. Oct 23. Originally written in 1981 and not well-received, revived Off Broadway in 1994, this London West End revival production, directed by Olivier Award winner Maria Friedman, was a major hit in 2012, earning five stars from British critics. It was filmed at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London. The story starts in 1980 and travels backwards in time through the lives of three friends. The film includes 20 minutes of backstage interviews with cast, crew and guests.

The Littleton Fine Arts Guild has enlisted local artists and framers to talk about how to frame two-dimensional art — from basic techniques for beginners to new ideas for experienced artists. Discussion will look at photographs, oil paintings, and other framed media. Free and open to the public.

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Artist members of the Littleton Fine Arts Guild, who operate and exhibit at the historic Depot Arts Gallery, 2069 W. Powers Ave., Littleton, entered a new show that challenged them to “express your artistic spirit.” The intent of the challenge was to encourage long-practicing artists to try new techniques in their specialized fields — in materials, style, technique, etc. … The resulting exhibit, “Artistic Spirit,” which runs through Nov. 10, was juried by Denver artist and teacher Patricia Barr Clark, a plein air watercolorist who has painted around the world. She belongs to the Colorado Watercolor Society and the Plein Air Artists of Colorado. Clark awarded “Best of Show” to Lynette Wilson for her oil painting “Next in Line” and First Place to Pat Dall for her ink-resist watercolor “Ink Resist Pots.” Fred Bickle won second place for his brushwork-intense acrylic painting “Weathered” and third place went to Sally Van Der Kamp for her stained-glass creation “Rocky Mountain Spirit.” Honorable mentions were awarded to Renee Zaccardi, Jennifer Riefenberg and Lynne Furrer.

Legend holds off Heritage Titans built a 37-7 halftime advantage By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Those young volunteers throwing mini-footballs to fans after every Legend score could have left at halftime Oct. 10 during the Titans’ Pioneer League contest against Heritage. Legend provided souvenirs for many fans at Sports Authority Stadium in Parker during the first half, taking a 37-7 halftime lead, but then had to hold on for a 37-29 triumph over Heritage. “It was very much a tale of two halves,” said Legend coach Rob Doyle. “Everything went just as we planned in the first half. “We just mentally didn’t come out as focused as we should have in the second half. They got some great opportunities and took advantage of them. They got some turnovers in the second half. We were kind of hanging on.” Heritage capitalized on two turnovers, ran off 22 consecutive points and was driving for the possible tying points in the final two minutes. However, Sam Beyer recovered an Eagles fumble after a completed pass at the Titan 9-yard line with 1:08 to play to preserve the Legend victory. “We had a one-word halftime talk and it was called guts,” said Heritage coach Mike Griebel. “We came out and showed it in the second half. If it would have been 40 minutes of that it would have been a different outcome. “We didn’t get it done the first half. That’s a good team and we got too far behind. I was proud how hard our kids fought in the second half. We gave ourselves a chance at the end.” In the first half, the Titans came out passing and built a commanding advantage. “We like to go deep,” explained Doyle. “We thought we could go vertical and it worked for us the first half. The second

half we were just off a little bit on some of those things.” Legend’s junior quarterback Peyton Remy threw three touchdowns passes and ran for two others. He wound up completing 14 of 23 passes for 298 yards. He did throw two interceptions in the second half. “The first half went really well,” recalled Remy. “We knew exactly what they were going to do defensively and we took advantage of it. Our mental focus was way off in the second half. We were just content with what we had. Thank God we came out on top.” Elijah Cherrington caught three passes for 133 yards, including an 87-yard TD reception. He also had a 51-yard punt that was downed at the Eagles 1-yard line that eventually led to a safety. Heritage ran 43 plays compared to 16 for the Titans in the second half but Legend’s defense bent but didn’t break. “Our defense was out there the whole second half,” said Doyle. “They played great. You are going to be tired when you are out there the whole time. We were happy with our defense.” Pioneer League tackles leader Keagan Anderson paced the Titans’ defense with 18 total tackles. Legend, 5-2 overall, moved into a second place tie behind Fountain Fort Carson in the Pioneer League with a 3-1 record. The Titans have games remaining against Rock Canyon (Oct. 18) and Castle View (Oct. 25). “This is our first time to have five wins in the regular season,” pointed out Doyle. “It keeps us in the hunt. We’re right in there. If Fountain Fort Carson losses, we’ll be right there.” Heritage, 3-4 overall, fell to 2-2 in the league with remaining games at home against Castle View Oct. 18 and Oct. 24 versus Fountain Fort Carson. Senior running back Rob Sublette rushed for 153 yards on 24 carries and scored once for the Eagles against Legend. Freshman quarterback Mikey Griebel also contributed to Heritage’s ground attack with 56 yards.

titans rebound to reach playoffs Legend bound for state after softball comeback By Tom Munds

tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com The Legend softball team lost the first battle to go to state to Castle View 5-4, then took 30 minutes to regroup on Oct. 12 before rolling to a 12-0 win over Rocky Mountain for the other state berth from regionals. “It was a disappointing loss to Castle View but, once it was over, you have to learn how to come back from failure and move on,” Shelly Boyd, Titans coach, said after the second game. “Our seniors stepped in and got our players fired up for the game against Rocky Mountain by stressing it was a do-or-die situation, and our girls really responded.” She said she’ll take advantage of the week’s practices to work to correct some mistakes that happened during regionals. “The practice will get us ready for the tournament,” the coach said. “We don’t know who we will play yet and we really don’t care because we are going to state.” The Titans come into the tournament as the seventh seed and play Grandview in the first round of the Oct. 18-19 state 16-team tournament. Legend and Grandview each have 17-5

season records, and they will meet in the first-round game at 12:15 p.m. Oct. 18 on a Complex C diamond at the Aurora Sports Complex, 19300 E. Colfax Ave. The Oct. 12 regional tournament used a four-team format to determine two state qualifiers. Legend got off to a good start by using solid defense and timely hitting to best Pomona, 6-2. The victory moved the Titans into the game against league rival Castle View to determine one of the state qualifiers. Legend got the first run of the game in the bottom of the first inning, but Castle View tied it up in top of the second on a solo home run. The score was tied again at 4-4 until the Sabercats scored a run and held on to win 5-4. After a short break, the Titans took the field against Rocky Mountain, which advanced to the contest by besting Pomona 8-5. Legend got three runs in the first inning and added three more in the bottom of the second that included Kaley Garcia’s double that drove in a pair of runs. The Titans added six more runs in the bottom of the fourth inning that included a solo home run by Brittney Russo and went on to win the game and the state tournament berth, 12-0. Janelle Gardner went the distance

When asked how her arm felt after the pitching marathon, she simply said she was hanging in there. “I have been pitching softball since I was 7,” the junior said. “I tried playing in the field and I was bored so I decided to learn to pitch. I work regularly with a pitching coach to try to keep getting better, because I hope to go on to play col-

lege softball.” She said, when she faces batters, she watches where they stand and tries to throw the ball where they can’t hit it hard. “I throw a drop ball and my best pitch is a change-up,” Gardner said. “I throw a fastball but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. My coach and I are working to help me throw that pitch better.”

Vista, Rock Canyon triumph in cross country Chaparral boys finish third at league meet By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Mountain Vista’s boys and the girls from Rock Canyon ran away with the team titles in the Continental League cross country championships Oct. 9 at Redstone Park. Paced by a one-two finish by Connor Weaver and Andrew Walton, the Mountain Vista boys had five runners finish in the top 10 and captured the league title. The Golden Eagles, the defending Class 5A state champions, had 26 points, with Rock Canyon finishing second in the team standings with 102 points, followed by Chaparral with 104 points. Rock Canyon senior Phoebe Schneider was first in the girls varsity race as the Jaguars placed three in the top 10 to win the team title with 66 points. Mountain Vista was the runner-up with 79 points and Heritage was third with 95 points.

The course had a 100-meter hill that runners had to ascend twice, which was a benefit for Weaver who crossed the finish line at Shea Stadium 22 seconds ahead of Walton. “I’m kind of a hill guy so doing that hill twice was to my advantage,” he explained. “I took the lead three-quarters of a mile into the race. “I wasn’t expecting to win by that much. I felt like there was a person just a few steps behind me the whole race. So I was running worried. When I came in and didn’t see anybody close to me I was surprised.” Weaver, a senior, noticed a time of 16:54. “It was one of my better races being a league championship race,” said Weaver. “I wanted to have a good race. I just wasn’t expecting the course to run that slow. “Time-wise it might not have been my best race, but all things considered it was a good effort. State is what matters. I’ll be ready at state to challenge some people.” Schneider’s 19:33 effort made her the league champion. “I started out at a pretty good pace,” she explained. “I stayed with a couple girls for the first mile and coming around the second loop, I took the lead. At the end I felt really good and took off and slowly started picking up until the finish. “I’ve been pretty strong this year and my races in general have been improving one upon another. To be called a league champion is something I’ve been working towards since my freshman year. This was more of a racecourse than a time course. The place was more significant than the time. I’ve made some big strides and improvements this year and it will be fun to see how the big races go.” Regional competition will be held Oct. 17-19 at various state venues, with the Class 5A state championships set for Oct. 26 at Norris Penrose Events Center in Colorado Springs. “It was fun to see two guys go first and second in the same race and three other guys right behind them,” Mountain Vista coach Jonathan Dalby said of the Golden Eagles’ Continental League championship race. “We need to get a strong effort from the sixth and seventh guys in the state meet and they are capable. We’ll go in and hope to give it a good shot.” Rock Canyon coach Dan Davies was pleased how his girls and boys teams performed in the Continental League meet and had high praise for Mountain Vista’s boys team. “We feel this is definitely our best girls team ever at Rock Canyon,” said Davies. “We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves. We definitely want to get in there and battle Pine Creek and Vista in the regionals. I’m proud of our guys. We were second in the league meet and we’ll take that any day going against the Mountain Vista boys. In my opinion, they are one of the top 10 boys teams in the nation.” The following are results of the varsity and junior varsity races at the Continental League championship cross country meet Oct. 9 at Redstone Park.

the changes, their implementation, lack of community input, and teacher morale they say is declining in the reforms’ wake. They also question the ultimate goal, with some speculating the current method of reform will lead to socioeconomic segregation and underfunded public schools. Bill Mathis, managing director of the Boulder-based National Education Policy Center, says evidence shows the reforms that date back as far as three decades remain unproven. “The whole set of neo-liberal reforms has not proven itself to be particularly effective,” Mathis said. “The top-down, testbased reform strategies which include privatization have just simply not paid off. The gains have been so small as to be not meaningful from a policy point of view. They certainly don’t close the achievement gap.” Stanford University professor Eric Hanushek says the reforms not only work, they are necessary to ensure the country’s economic future. Hanushek points specifically to two reforms — pay-for-performance and vouchers — he thinks have a positive, combined effect on the quality of education. “What both of these do is to set up a set of incentives that try to lead you to better teachers,” he said. “Pay-for-performance correctly rewards those that are doing well and doesn’t reward those that aren’t doing as good. “Vouchers are such that if somebody’s in a school and doesn’t feel they’re being served well by the teachers in the school, they have the option to go somewhere else. So there’s an incentive for the schools to try to keep their students by providing better-quality education. Everybody potentially wins — except perhaps the people in the current system that don’t want to change.” Additionally, Hanushek said, “The voucher system is just giving parents more choice, which seems like a sensible idea to many of us.” In Mathis’ eyes, vouchers’ effects have a broader, more concerning effect. “It will not give you much educational improvement if they follow the national record,” he said. “But I’d look out for the segregation effects. What happens is, you get tremendous amounts of socioeconomic segregation that occurs as a result. Affluent children go to schools with

Ballots were mailed Oct. 15 to registered voters in Douglas County. If an active voter has not received a ballot for this all-mail-in election by Oct. 22, they may request a replacement ballot by contacting Douglas County’s elections division until Oct 28.

other affluent children. Groups segregate by religion and other identifiers. That’s troublesome in a nation in which we have such huge economic disparities. Feeding this type of segregation is not good for democracy.” Hanushek said vouchers present, “a little tendency toward economic segregation, but there’s also great advantage in providing stronger incentives for schools to do better.” Both men acknowledged the reform movement attracts support from conservative organizations — locally including Americans for Prosperity and the Independence Institute — but they disagree on the reason. “Part of it is ideological in terms of being anti-government,” Mathis said. “Public schools are seen as government where they would prefer a market-based orientation. Also, (reform) is seen by some as defunding education and lowering the profile of government. “If you scratch a little deeper you have to ask questions about who profits by a set of policies that segregate people.” Hanushek believes the interest stems from concern about American student performance falling behind that of other countries. “There’s a group of people and organizations that think we have to do a lot to reform our schools,” he said. Some of their concerns are similar to the views he expresses in his book “Endangering Prosperity: A Global View of the American School.” “The basic message is the future of the country depends upon improving our schools,” he said. “Some of the outside philanthropists believe these institutes — pay-for-performance and vouchers — are ways to move the whole nation forward. “All other things being equal, nations that have more pay-for-performance or more choice in schools do better than other nations,” Hanushek said. “I think that there’s a lot of international evidence that supports these reforms as ways to improve schools.”

Horse Liniment Erases Pain

HIALEAH, FL — An ingredient often used to treat inflammation in racehorse legs, is now back on the market in its original doctor recommended formula. According to a national drug survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. The inventor of the original formula has brought it back under the trade name ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve pain for millions.
