Reform slate takes race Tough battle for schools ends with voters’ decision Staff report Candidates favoring the current direction of the reform-oriented Douglas County School Board won all four races, after months of heated electioneering on both sides. Unofficial results released at 11 p.m. Election Day showed the closest race was in District E, where incumbent Doug

Benevento

Geddes

Reynolds

Benevento led challenger Bill Hodges 51.9 percent to 48.1 percent, with a margin of 3,615 votes separating them. In District B, Jim Geddes led 52.6 percent to 47.4 percent over Barbra Chase.

In District D, Judi Reynolds held a 52 percent to 48 percent lead over Julie Keim. In District G, incumbent Meghann Silverthorn held a 53.5 percent lead over Ronda Scholting’s Silverthorn 46.5 percent. In each race, about 95,000 votes were counted, with a possibility of a few thousand more remaining to be tallied. Reynolds, who was at a vote-watch gathering at the Fowl Line sports bar in

Castle Rock, was looking forward to serving her four-year term. “The majority of people like the way things are headed and want to see them implemented,” she said. Benevento saw a mandate in the results. “The voters elected a slate of candidates who have articulated a clear point of view of where it is we want to go. So we are going to move in that direction and talk to people and listen. Clearly there are a lot of voters who feel the other way and we need to understand that,” he said. Race continues on Page 7

The BALD and the

BEAUTIFUL

Rocky Vista shows support for student battling cancer By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com There were so many bald heads under Rocky Vista University’s roof, one could have easily mistaken it as a convention for the follically challenged. Instead, it was a head-shaving event in support of Michelle Valentine, a student at the college of osteopathic medicine on Chambers Road north of E-470. Thousands of dollars were raised for the Susan G. Komen foundation, and the camaraderie among the students was further solidified Nov. 1. Valentine, 37, was diagnosed with breast cancer in June. Her chemotherapy treatments have left her completely bald, but she rocks the look with confidence.

When the school wanted to organize a fundraising event, the head-shaving event was a natural choice. Valentine elected to have the money go specifically toward research aimed at helping breast cancer patients under 40, a population she says is underrepresented. The second floor of the university, packed with supporters, buzzed with excitement, nervousness and the sound of clippers run by a handful of stylists from Floyd’s 99 Barbershop. Women lined up to get thin pink extensions in their hair and dozens of men waited to their locks chopped. Some know Valentine, and some don’t. Christopher Gilsdorf, a second-year Rocky Vista student from Fort Collins, had his hair cut by Nester Bustos, a Floyd’s 99 stylist who participates in at least one community charity event per year. Gilsdorf, who says he knows Valentine “a

Parker’s water users could see higher water and sewer rates starting in January. The Parker Water and Sanitation Board of Directors was scheduled to consider a proposal Nov. 7 to raise water rates by 3.5 percent and sewer rates by 1.5 percent. A decision was expected during a meeting after the Parker Chronicle’s press deadline. The 5 percent increase would add an average of $2.56 to the monthly bill of a tier 1 residential customer. District manager Ron Redd said the rate hike is needed to cover the costs of new programs, including infrastructure needed for the district’s participation in WISE, an agreement that will send an average of 1,200 acre-feet of recycled water to Parker annually from Denver and Aurora. Additional money is also needed to fund operations at the water treatment plant under construction north of Rueter-Hess Reservoir, including more staff, chemicals and electricity. General inflation costs are also figured into the proposed increase, Redd said. “No one likes their bills to go up, but I feel like we’ve done a good job of holding costs in line,” he said. “This is a new cost and we’re passing that cost along to our customers.” Tracy Hutchins, one of five members of the Parker Water and Sanitation District board, said she is voting against the increase, partly because she says the district doesn’t have a detailed financial plan to go with its long-range master plan. “We don’t have a good handle on it, and personally, I don’t think we should be raising rates until we have a handle on it,” Hutchins said, referring to the district’s financial future. Redd acknowledged that the district needs to get a more rigid financial plan in place, saying “we’ve got a lot of work to do.” But he said the district must fund new programs approved by the board, including WISE, and obligations made by previous leadership, like the water treatment plant.

A Facebook page that’s not antisocial media Sept. 22 … that was a really lovely thing you did today, giving flowers to the girls who weren’t asked to homecoming. … It was really good to see that someone cared enough to put some good hard effort into being a good person. For a lot of us it was the highlight of our day. … Thank you so much, really. March 5 The other day when everyone in the west atrium pitched in to help the janitors clean up/stack chairs/fold tables? Ya. That was really cool. If you scroll through the Facebook Compliments page of Lakewood High School, you’ll come across many more just like these. “Positive words,” senior Olivia Ehret says, “have the power to change the community.” One could say that is her mantra and why, almost a year ago, she and a friend decided to duplicate the Compliments page she had stumbled upon on the University of Southern California website. “Oh, gosh, I was entranced by it,” Olivia remembers. “I scrolled on it for two hours. I thought if it could be implemented on such a huge campus as USC, it definitely could at Lakewood.” Compliments, after all, are just one more way of spreading a little kindness. But the accolade-filled Facebook pages also reflect a positive use of social media in an age when it is often used as a tool for meanness and spitefulness. Consider the recent suicide of a 12-yearold Florida girl, who investigators say killed herself after continued online harassment by two other girls, 12 and 14. There have been many other such cases reported. Federal government studies report 52 percent of students have been cyberbullied and

25 percent repeatedly through their cell phones or the Internet. The faceless nature of social media makes it alarmingly easy to be unkind, to cause hurt without feeling or seeing the effects or repercussions. Although many describe social media as impersonal, it’s actually quite the opposite. Plenty of emotion flies across the networked miles — sadly, it’s often the hateful kind. Which is what is so nice about a Compliments page: It puts the heart back into the words. Oct. 30 We only recently talked, but you are an amazing person inside and out. I love how you aren’t afraid to be yourself, it is really inspiring! The nice things you say can make people’s day, like it did mine! One of the first such uses of social media occurred in October 2011 when a young man at Iowa City West High School created a Twitter Compliments account as a way to fight back against cyberbullying in the area. The account took off, tweeting more than 3,000 messages in three months. Several other high schools followed, and then universities, including Columbia, Penn State and Brown, spurred the trend with Facebook pages that, for the most part, remain anonymous by asking users to

send compliments to an inbox from which administrators then tag the messages to the recipient’s News Feed. That’s how it’s done at Lakewood High School. “It’s just a nice way for people’s days to be brightened,” Olivia says. “The beauty is in the mystery.” Although the Lakewood page wasn’t started as a response to cyberbullying, Olivia believes it helps keep the negativity and meanness at bay. In almost a year, there’s only been one comment she’s removed. “I think we’d be a lot more positive and healthy society” if we said nicer things to each other, she says. “People would have better self-images of themselves and feel more open communication with other people. And maybe there would be less instances of bullying if people didn’t feel so isolated and lonely.” March 12 Seeing this page makes me want to transfer to Lakewood as soon as possible. I’ve seen bullying all around at my school. There’s NO ONE that has the courage to compliment one other here. I appreciate how everyone treats each other well. … There is an art to complimenting, though. It must be sincere. It must be truthful. Otherwise, it loses the power to uplift and could do just the opposite, says Michael Karlson, a professor at the University of Denver’s graduate school of professional psychology. An insincere compliment makes you “wonder if that other person doesn’t respect you or know you.” But a genuine one can work a little magic. “It can activate a positive image of yourself,” Karlson says. “Sometimes, when we’re feeling depressed and incompetent, it’s a

reminder of who we usually are.” Olivia would agree. “A lot of people they say the compliments have been posted at just the right time,” she says, because “they were having a rough time.” March 13 To the girl in the bathroom who said I was pretty. … Thanks. I really needed that right then. Olivia, quite wise at 17, has an idea about why we aren’t as kind as we could be — we’re afraid of the reaction, of what people might think of us. “Society is kind of closed off in the sense that when we see something positive about someone we keep it to ourselves,” she says, “especially when it’s someone we don’t know that well.“ We need to take the leap. It’s not that difficult. “Kind words can be short and easy to speak,” a Missionaries of Charities Sisters once said, “but their echoes are truly endless.” If we find we can’t say them, maybe we can write them. Oct. 13, via mobile Luka Savarie, I don’t know you at all. But I think you seem like such a cool and down to earth person. Also your haircut is SO cute. 23 like This made my night. (smiley face) thank you so much you lovely, lovely person. And that says it all. Ann Macari Healey’s column about people, places and issues of everyday life appears every other week.

seeking, Frost said. By C The board has a list of goals and will getcmic Houston’s feedback and input once he is settled. Fo “We’re anxious to see where he can takepose our chamber, as going into 2014 we haveNigh lots of exciting things going on,” she said.the t “We want to expand on programs that are just now taking shape.” On a professional level, Houston says he is looking forward to learning about the challenges and opportunities in the business community. He is also eager to engage in strategic planning with Town of Parker officials, the school district and Douglas County. “I’m looking forward to that collaboration so we can all make sure Parker grows in a positive way that we’re all proud of,” Houston said. The Norfolk, Neb., area shares similarities with Parker because it’s a growing community in a semi-rural area. The town of Norfolk has a population of about 25,000, but the service area contains about 125,000 people, Houston said. His experience in working with different sectors — from home-based businesses to small retail shops to industrial companies —was a quality the search committee took notice of, Frost said. After a weeks-long “listening tour” to learn the lay of the land, Houston wants to discuss with the board the chamber’s role in helping Parker achieve its goals. On a personal level, the move to Colorado has been a long time coming. Houston visits Colorado about twice annually with his wife and two boys, and a permanent move has been one of the family’s objectives. “The lifestyle is a big part of it for us,” Houston said.

Public notices to change; fines stay the same Four of five ballot questions approved By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Four out of the five ballot questions posed to Parker voters passed on Election Night, allowing for minor modifications to the town charter.

Parker Town Council will now have additional ways to announce public meetings with the passing of 2K, 2L and 2N. But ballot question 2J was defeated by more than 400 votes, while its companion question, 2M, passed by more than 500 votes in the Nov. 5 election. Questions 2J and 2M were meant to change language in the town charter dealing with municipal court penalties. 2M would have enabled town council to set fine amounts and jail terms by ordinance.

“The implication of the item that did not pass, which was 2J, is that council cannot expand the jurisdiction of the municipal court beyond one year imprisonment or a $1,000 fine,” town spokeswoman Elise Penington said. State legislators changed the maximum penalty amount to adjust for inflation. The town was trying to be consistent with state law, but that won’t happen “until voters approve the amendment at some point in the future,” she said.

Question 2M removes specific language from the charter referring to punishments, fines and imprisonment, but the council is still bound by those limitations. “Because the other one didn’t pass, they’re still limited,” Penington said. Ballot questions 2K, 2L and 2N give town officials more flexibility in deciding how to announce public meetings, special meetings and notices, including via email and social media.

Coloradans give a firm no to Amendment 66 By Vic Vela

vvela@ourcoloradonews.com A ballot measure that sought to overhaul the way Colorado schools are funded suffered a sound defeat on Nov. 5. Voters by a resounding margin rejected Amendment 66, a measure that would have created at least $950 million in new taxes annually to fund major school reforms across the state. It was never close. After early returns showed the measure to be doomed, the only matters in question were how wide of a margin the ballot measure would fail by, and at what time would supporters publicly admit defeat — which occurred about an hour after 7 p.m. poll closings. As of the early morning of Nov. 6, Amendment 66 had been rejected by about 66 percent of voters, with 91 percent of precincts reporting. “Perhaps this wasn’t the right transaction,” Gov. John Hickenlooper acknowledged to a room of muted and disappointed supporters from inside downtown Denver’s Marriot Denver City Center. Trying to remain positive, the governor also said that “no one fought against” the measure’s vision of making funding for Colorado schools a model for the rest of the nation. Hickenlooper said he will continue to strive toward achieving that goal.

“Every great social victory in the history of this country was based on a number of failures,” Hickenlooper said. Meanwhile, Amendment 66 opponents crowed. “Colorado families spoke loud and clear,” said Kelly Maher, executive director of Compass Colorado, a group that worked to oppose Amendment 66. “We need substantive outcome-driven reforms to the educational system before we ask families and small businesses to foot a major tax bill.” The measure sought to fund full-day kindergarten, preschool for at-risk youth, and would have provided more resources for English language learners, special education students and children who are in gifted and talented programs. Also, the measure aimed to reduce class sizes and would have reformed per-pupil funding statewide in a more equitable fashion, proponents argued. While the reforms may have sounded good to many people, even the governor acknowledged that the hefty price tag associated with overhauling the new funding system was responsible for turning off many voters. The measure would have raised taxes on all Colorado taxpayers. The two-tiered proposal would have raised income taxes to 5 percent on everyone earning $75,000 or less. Those who earn over that amount

would have paid 5 percent on the first $75,000 in taxable income and 5.9 percent on taxable income above $75,000. Colorado’s current income tax rate is a flat 4.63 percent, regardless of income level. The measure sought to put in place legislation that was enacted through Senate Bill 213. The Democrat-sponsored bill — which was signed by Hickenlooper in June — did not receive a single vote from Republican lawmakers. Republicans and other critics blasted the school funding overhaul as a “billion-dollar tax hike” that comes at a time when Coloradans are barely coming out of a recession. They also argued that Senate Bill 213 did

Opponents also argued that much of the revenue that would have been raised through Amendment 66 would have ended up going to school districts other than the ones where taxpayers’ children attend. The measure was rejected in just about every area of the state. For example, late returns showed the measure was failing badly in Adams, Arapahoe, Douglas, El Paso and Jefferson counties. The only large counties that could end up seeing majority support when the votes are officially tallied are Denver and Boulder.

opinions / yours and ours

For all who chew, this spud’s for you There are few things better than a baked potato, but you must never have one before Sept. 22. It’s very bad luck if you do. To be safe, I don’t bake one until the day the clocks fall back. This year that was Nov. 3. In French, a potato is a “pomme de terre”: an apple from the earth. Apples are great too, but you can’t put sour cream or bacon bits on them. French fries in French are “les frites.” Makes no sense. I couldn’t explain why baked potatoes are so wonderful when they are so ordinary and abundant any better than Katharine Hepburn’s description of Spencer Tracy. Hepburn compared Tracy to a baked potato. “A baked potato is pure,” she said. “It’s of the earth, and it’s dependable, that was Spencer.” We rarely had baked potatoes when I was growing up. We had mashed potatoes,

and they’re almost as good as baked potatoes. I played with my mashed potatoes, however. It’s difficult to play with baked potatoes, so immediately you feel more grown up. I am a miserable cook, but I can bake a potato. They are foolproof, unless you take them out of the oven too soon, which I have done. Then they are crunchy, and not so good. Baked potatoes should be prepared when the weather breaks, when summer has packed up, and autumn registers for a while, before winter settles in.

question of the week

Will Fox’s absence hurt the Broncos? After head coach John Fox’s emergency medical procedure that will keep him away from the Broncos’ sidelines for a month or two, Colorado Community Media stopped by the Sports Authority and Target in Highlands Ranch’s Town Center and asked local residents what sort of impact they thought Fox’s absence would have on the team.

“It won’t (have any impact). Peyton is the quarterback, he’s the coach.” — Brandon Nelon, Littleton

“I don’t think we will miss him too much. Del Rio is a good interim coach, and we have Peyton.” — Chris Mueller, Highlands Ranch

“I don’t think it will affect them. I think Jack Del Rio is quite capable. He has proven himself as a head coach.” — Katie Allison, Highlands Ranch

“I don’t think it will affect them; we’ve got Peyton. He could be the coach, the quarterback, he can do whatever.” — Angelina Heuchert, Centennial

Exit onto road less traveled “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” From the Robert Frost poem, “The Road Not Taken.” Have you been there, faced with a tough decision or at a crossroad in your life? And if so, did you take the road less traveled or did you follow the path where the ground had been cleared and maybe just a little bit easier to traverse? I have found myself at that decision point on more than one occasion, a true crossroad in my life. And maybe it’s the closet poet in me and huge fan of Robert Frost, but I, in most cases, seem to take the road less traveled. In most cases it has served me well and set me on a new course, adventurous tour, and wild ride. But just as the poem reads, “… and that has made all the difference.” And then there have been those few times where I followed the masses, accepted the easy path, went along to get along, and I found myself either bored or disappointed, always wondering what would have been or could have been had I chosen the road less traveled. You see, I am not a very good “yes” man, and when I find myself at a decision point, especially a critical decision point, I need to be able to evaluate my options and determine what most others might choose to do, and dig in deeper to the “why” behind their decisions. And this is what usually triggers my decision to try an alternate route. When people share with me where they are in the crossroads of their own life, I often encourage them to take the time to clearly write out all of the op-

There may be no better dinner on a snowy evening than a baked potato. It is a simple and honest meal or side dish. Compare this to lobster. You don’t have to euthanize a potato. Compare baking a potato to homemade lasagna or Thai pretzel chicken. You just pre-heat the oven, foil-wrap or olive-oil the potato, and then go do something else for a couple of hours — unless you microwave it. Which I never do. For some reason, I prefer to bake potatoes. It’s a part of their charm. I speed-dial frozen entrees all the time, but I don’t want to speed-dial a potato. I’d add some thoughts about the Irish potato famine, but it’s unpleasant, and I want a pleasant column for a change. No complaints or grudges, or proposals of prison time for tailgaters. This surprised me: “China is now the world’s largest potato-producing country, and nearly a third of the world’s potatoes are harvested in China and India.” India? My No. 1 television program is “Modern

D.C. must grow up In stark contrast to Washington’s dysfunction, which brought us a 16-day government shutdown and the risk of default in October, Coloradans know what it means to do their jobs day in and day out. Across the state, and in some cases as they recovered from catastrophic flooding, workers in Colorado continued to carry out their duties and meet their responsibilities, in light of the paralysis in Washington. From police officers to teachers, business owners to assembly-line workers, we proved that Colorado doesn’t shut down. To highlight this point, immediately following the shutdown, we traveled across the state to work side-by-side with Coloradans who are working hard day in and day out. Despite challenges they face, the workers we met with were meeting their obligations, providing for their families, and contributing to our economy. At Adam’s Mountain Cafe, an eatery in Manitou Springs, the restaurant’s owner, Farley McDonough, quickly put me to work. Between filling waters and wiping down tables, I talked with customers about the hardships and losses they’ve suffered as a result of the mudslides and flooding in Manitou this summer. They also shared with me their frustration with the dysfunction in Washington. Later, when riding along with Officer Marcus Juliano on his beat in Pueblo, I witnessed his dedication to his community as he responded to call after call well into the night. In Fowler, at the family-owned Jensen’s Blue Ribbon Processing, Jerry Jensen, the meatpacking plant’s owner, explained the challenges and costs of competing with

Parker Chronicle tions, all of the pros and cons, and to visualize each option as if they actually made the decision to pursue that option. When we are faced with a decision point or at a crossroads, we should surround ourselves with strong friends, wise advisers and people we absolutely trust to be our sounding board and help us walk through our options and thought processes around each important decision we need to make. Do I take more risks than I should? Yes. Are they educated risks or guesses? In most cases. Do I follow my heart, my gut, and attempt to balance that with what is going through my head? Yes. But at the end of the day, as Robert Frost says, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” I would love to hear what you do at the crossroads of your life at gotonorton@gmail.com and I really do believe that this will be a better than good week.

Marvels.” I can’t get enough. Now and then the History Channel has a “Modern Marvels” marathon and I am glued to it. Season 15, Episode 3: “Potato.” Originally aired January 28, 2010. It covers everything about potatoes, and the narrator, justifiably, makes the ordinary potato sound like a major contributor to civilization. The narrator, Lloyd Sherr, has one of the great voices in television. His stage name is Max Raphael, which is a combination of his sons’ names, Max and Raphael. He makes the potato sound heroic. Idaho is sometimes called the “Potato State,” but its real nickname is the “Gem State,” which isn’t very inspiring. You’re in the clear: It’s past Sept. 22, the first day of autumn. Have a baked potato tonight.

large companies. Jerry works hard every day to keep his doors open. At U.S. Tractor and Harvest Inc. in Alamosa, mechanics explained the difficulties small farms are facing due to drought and high feed costs, not to mention the fact that Washington has yet to reauthorize the farm bill. Whether it was substitute teaching in Denver, working at Brown Cycles and Edgewater Brewery in Grand Junction, or hauling onions at Tuxedo Farms in Olathe, the contrast between these hard-working Coloradans and the political antics going on in Washington was crystal-clear. Though the government has reopened — at least temporarily — the effects of this ridiculous and manufactured crisis were undeniably damaging to the country and to Colorado. As we look forward, now is the time for Washington to get its act together and work on priorities important to Coloradans. This includes fixing our broken immigration system, passing the farm bill, and most importantly crafting a balanced bipartisan budget. Democrat Michael Bennet has represented Colorado in the U.S. Senate since 2009.

Reformers keep control in school district GOP-endorsed slate sweeps Douglas County school race By Jane Reuter

jreuter@ourcoloradonews.com The Douglas County School District likely will continue with its education reform efforts, as four candidates who endorse those changes won their races for board seats. The Douglas County Republican-endorsed slate of candidates, including two incumbents and two newcomers who support the current board’s education reform efforts, prevailed over four candidates heavily supported by community-based organizations. Incumbents Doug Benevento and Meghann Silverthorn, and Judi Reynolds and Jim Geddes will be sworn in at a school board meeting, but not until the election results are certified. Since the county’s Board of Canvass isn’t set to meet until Nov. 21, that could be as late as Dec. 3. Board vice president Kevin Larsen said he wants to keep the district moving forward. “Even when things are excellent, you always want to be looking ahead to what’s going to keep your kids ahead in the future world,” he said. “I don’t want us to be the best buggy whip maker. The automobile revolutionized the way people get around. On a different level, we are now connecting the world

Race Continued from Page 1

“The voters have elected four candidates who believe in parental choice and who believe in performance pay. It’s a very clear mandate about the direction we are going.” Silverthorn said, “I think the voters have clearly said: `We want you to continue modernizing education,’ but let’s talk about how we are doing that.”

Challenger plans recount

After the night’s earliest release of partial election results, which didn’t look good for the challenger candidates, those opposing the current board’s direction said they were still optimistic. “We’re on the right side,” said Keim. “I really believe we have the community’s support and we’ll see that at the end.” “I’m a little nervous, a little surprised,” said Chase. The challenger candidates were gathered with about 200 supporters at Stumpy’s Pizza in Castle Rock. The mood in the restaurant, jubilant before the 7:30 p.m. announcement of initial returns in the Republican-endorsed slates’ favor, turned somber, expressions of concern replacing smiles. One challenger candidate already appeared to be heading toward a recount. “We have already got a plan for a recount,” Sue

Their areas of concern covered a broad range of issues, including a discon-

nect among the board, community members and teachers. “We just witnessed parent voices being silenced in their own school district,” said Susan Meek, a board member with Douglas County Parents, one of the community groups supporting the challenger candidates. “So many volunteers have worked tirelessly to ensure that a significant portion of the community has a voice on the school board, and what we witnessed is outside funders and influences trumped parents. The record number of voters in this school

Kober, Julie Keim’s campaign manager, announced to the crowd gathered at Stumpy’s after the second wave of results was released. “We have an attorney who said he would help us pro bono. “This is about our teachers, this is about our students, this is about our community. We are not done.” Those results still showed the pro-board candidates in the lead, though Kober insisted it was too close to call. Kober was hostess for the evening, announcing results to the people gathered at Stumpy’s. The evening of Election Day brings to a close years of school-board campaigning that began with the conclusion of the 2011 Douglas County School Board election, and culminated during the last few months with a series of community-led protests, emotional school board meetings, teacher resignations, lawsuits and high-dollar campaigns that heightened divisions within the community. In 2011 and in 2009, board seats went to Douglas County Republican-supported candidates who support the education reform policies now in place. The reforms include a court-stymied voucher program, and controversial teacher evaluation and pay systems. Both the reform policies and a fractious campaign have drawn the nation’s attention. Some say Douglas County is a testing ground for the reform effort, a characterization board opponents decry as subjecting

local children to experimentation. The school board and administration say the changes made and those still planned by current officials will make Douglas County a leader in the nation, and better prepare children for a rapidly changing world. Critics contend the seven-member board is acting according to an outsidedriven agenda to privatize public educa-

board election demonstrates that people in our community care deeply about being represented. “For elected individuals to ignore, belittle and intimidate a significant portion of the community is inexcusable and will lead to further turmoil and division in Douglas County. We will continue to advocate for our children’s future and our future as this board continues to dismantle one of the highest-performing school districts in the state.” Larsen, whose seat was not up for election, said he already had made plans he hopes will bridge community divides, “regardless of the outcome”. “In a lot of ways, the vote is a bit of a referendum on which way the community wants the school district to go,” he said. ““We have to figure out a way to get everybody together regardless of their view on the outcome, to make sure this is the best district it can be. I do think we need to get to where we can have a conversation about policy and issues and get beyond the personal hurt and attacks the campaign has tended to bring.” Larsen wants to see changes in the board’s meeting structure to allow more public engagement as well as open community forums. Meek noted that the vast majority of campaign funds for the newly elected board members came from outside the county, while almost all the money donated to the challengers was given by Douglas County residents.

The winning candidates join school board vice president Kevin Larsen, and board members Craig Richardson and Justin Williams. Staff writers Jane Reuter and Ryan Boldrey contributed to this report.

Fire program includes those with special needs Plan could include paid positions in the future By Chris Michlewicz

cmichlewicz@ourcoloradonews.com Sometimes all it takes is giving a person the chance to prove what they can do. At least, that’s what Doug Bloomquist figures. As operations executive officer for the South Metro Fire Rescue Authority, Bloomquist makes sure the workforce is functioning efficiently and effectively. He also has the opportunity to introduce new programs that not only help the fire service, but incorporate the community. Enter Marty Williams, a 20-year-old developmentally disabled man from Parker who got in trouble for pulling a fire alarm at his apartment complex last year. Williams learned a lesson from the firefighters at South Metro’s station 41, near Mainstreet and Pine Drive, who took him under their wing. Bloomquist took notice when he started seeing Williams hanging out at the station and helping with the cleaning duties. The department’s fleet manager suggested finding Williams a role in the supply warehouse, and Bloomquist got a positive reaction from quartermaster Matt Whipple, who is in charge of filling supply orders for all of the firehouses. Williams has since become fully involved as a weekly volunteer, gathering necessities like coffee, cleaning supplies, batteries and window washer fluid for the fire trucks to send to the appropriate station. He also helps fill orders and deliver uniforms and gear. “The nice thing about doing this for Marty is that he gets to see what else is out

Castle Rock

there,” Whipple says. “Instead of just South Metro Fire being station 41, he gets to see what goes into it from this side or over at the admin building.” Williams is in the Bridge Program, a transition program that enables developmentally disabled adults to gain job skills they can use in the workforce. Now Bloomquist, as part of a research project for senior fire officials, is developing a pilot program, of which Williams is the first participant. The research will determine whether developmentally disabled adults should become employed at South Metro

and what roles they might fill. “It’s a group that’s really kind of discriminated against and there are a lot of possibilities out there for them,” Bloomquist said. “I think that’s part of our community responsibility to look at those.” Bloomquist recently finished a needs analysis by sending out a questionnaire to every staffer in the department to “give me an idea of where we could possibly carve out jobs,” including administrative positions. Whipple has adapted the job to help Williams perform better. As of one month

ago, the supply orders come with pictures of the requested items. “It helps him identify how to fill the order. It didn’t take a whole lot, it was inexpensive, and it makes a world of difference,” Bloomquist said. Little notes like that will likely be included in a presentation he makes to the South Metro Fire Rescue board of directors, the body that makes decisions on budget allocations for new positions. The pilot program has given Williams the job skills and confidence that will come in handy in a permanent role at the fire department or in another professional setting. He also works at Dollar Tree in Parker, and when he’s not volunteering, working or attending school, Williams is in a predictable place. “Hang out with (Station) 41,” he said. “Stay out of trouble.” Chris Fairbanks, his aunt and guardian, says the crews serve as mentors and make Williams do his homework. He comes along on some emergency calls, helps the firefighters clean the firehouse and works out with them. He is made to feel like one of the guys, and Williams shows his gratitude with his work ethic. “He tries to help anybody that needs help,” Fairbanks said. Since the program is in its infancy, applications for new volunteers are not being accepted. Easter Seals and Goodwill will analyze the results of Bloomquist’s program and help define the positions, and the fire district will work with the Bridge Program and Developmental Pathways to bring in new recruits. No other department has created such a program, Bloomquist said, and if funding is approved, his plan is to roll it out next year. The pilot program could become a model for other departments.

NEWS IN A HURRY Task force seeks donations

In an effort to make the Thanksgiving holiday a little brighter for families in need, the Parker Task Force food bank is seeking donations for holiday food baskets so families can prepare a Thanksgiving meal at their home. Food baskets should feed a family of four to six people and contain Thanksgiving dinner items, such as frozen turkey, canned vegetables, stuffing, cans of sweet potatoes, gravy, packets or jars, cans of cranberry sauce, canned fruit and instant mashed potatoes. The baskets or boxes can be dropped off at the conference room in the Parker Task Force building at 20118 E. Mainstreet between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Nov. 24. The food bank is also seeking monetary donations. A tax-deductible $50 donation will feed a family of four to six people. Checks made payable to the Parker Task Force

(memo: Thanksgiving) may be mailed to the attention of Diane Roth, Parker Task Force, 20118 E. Mainstreet Unit D, Parker, CO 80138. Donors may also make a contribution using PayPal through the Parker Task Force website, www.parkertaskforce. org. “The holiday season is an important time to raise money for all nonprofits. Any additional funds collected during Thanksgiving will be used to help provide limited financial assistance to prevent eviction or utility shut-off through the winter months,” said Steve Budnack, chairman of the Parker Task Force. The task force can also use gift cards to local grocery stores. Those who would like more information about the Thanksgiving efforts should leave a message at 303-8413460 or send an email to dianer@parkertaskforce.org.

A thorough rate and fee analysis will be conducted this winter and spring, Redd said. “If you ask me six months from now, I’ll be able to tell you what the rates will be long-term, but I think you will see incremental rate increases for a while,” he said. He later added: “We will have a finetoothed comb on this in the future.” The cost of bringing in new water, and building the pipelines to transport the water, will continue to rise. More users will help spread out the costs; Ridgegate and the Canyons, in Lone Tree and Castle Pines, respectively, will be served by Parker Water. Redd had “no indication whatsoever” that Hutchins was opposed to the 5 per-

little,” raised $50 for the cause. Aside from Valentine, the star of the head-shaving event was Dr. Rebecca Bowden, a Rocky Vista professor who raised more than $7,500 and faced the clippers. It was her first time going bald and she admitted to the crowd on hand that it “felt good.”

cent increase and said he assumed it would get unanimous approval. Hutchins said she believes the district should not only continue cutting administrative costs, but that the board should consider a proposal from private investors who want to build Stroh Road to Interstate 25, with some federal funding. Although impact fees, such as tap fees paid by new customers to hook into the PWSD system, will not be affected by the proposed increase, they could change in the future; Redd says they will be looked at during the rate study. More rooftops will alleviate the financial burden on existing customers, Hutchins said, and keeping tap fees low for new customers is crucial because “future development is what keeps us in business.” “The reality is if home prices become more out of this world, the land’s not going to get developed,” she said. If approved, the 5 percent increase would take effect Jan. 1.

Bowden, who has had Valentine in some of her classes, succinctly summed up her line of thinking about donating time, money and hair on behalf of Valentine. “We’re family,” Bowden said of the small, tight-knit school that opened in 2008. Valentine must undergo radiation treatment and surgery, but her spirits are bright. She was uplifted by the number of people who got involved in the head-shaving event and described it as “one of the coolest things of my life.” She said it speaks to the character of medical students and their willingness to step up for others in need.

crime report Collectible coin missing

Around 2:30 p.m. Oct. 21, Parker police officers responded to the 10000 block of Holyoke Drive on report of a theft. The reporting party stated he ordered a collector’s coin and when the package arrived, the box was damaged and the coin wasn’t inside. He has ordered items from the company in the past and never had any problems with the product. The theft was reported to the mail service and the company from which he purchased the coin. There were no suspects.

Garage opened during night

Approximately 5 p.m. Oct. 21, Parker police officers responded to a cold burglary in the 11000 block of Tumbleweed Way. The reporting party said she had parked her vehicle in the garage at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 19 and shut the garage door. Her husband found the garage door open about 8 a.m. the following morning. On the morning of Oct. 21, the woman noticed items were missing from inside her vehicle.

Idyllwilde home burglarized

The Parker Police Department responded to the 12000 block of Meander Way on a reported burglary. The caller said the patio door to the home was open when they arrived at 9:30 a.m. Oct. 25. The reporting party noticed items taken from inside the home. Police did not release a description of the stolen items. During the investigation, officers found broken windows in the basement.

Woman reports assault to avoid trouble

At 6:46 p.m. Oct. 26, Parker officers responded to the 16000 block of Carlson Drive on a possible assault that occurred at Walmart, 11101 Parker Road. An 18-yearold woman said she had been assaulted in the parking lot at Walmart and her vehicle sustained damage. After further investigation, it was determined she had not been

at Walmart that day. The woman changed her story and said the assault and damage to her vehicle occurred in the Clarke Farms neighborhood. Upon further questioning, she admitted to lying to police officers to keep from getting into trouble with her parents. She was issued a court summons for false reporting.

Truck stolen from dealer lot

Approximately 11:30 a.m. Oct. 28, Parker police responded to Berkenkotter Motors, 11534 Parker Road, on a vehicle theft. The reporting party said a truck had gone missing from the lot between 6:30 p.m. Oct. 26 and 3 p.m. the following day. The truck is a 2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat Crew Cab, with black exterior paint and tan interior. Police are looking for crime tips from the public.

Teens suspected of vandalism

A Douglas County sheriff’s deputy was dispatched to 5174 Oak Way for a suspicious incident. A woman said that at 8 p.m. Oct. 31, someone was on her back porch and pounded on the sliding glass door. She turned on her lights in the back yard. She checked the entire property and saw nothing, but saw approximately five teenagers in the park behind her house. They were in Halloween costumes and were standing on tables and benches in the park. She told the teenagers to get off the tables and benches and asked them where they lived. They told her they were not from her neighborhood. They got off the tables and benches. About 15 minutes later, they left the park in a large white SUV. The caller said she believes the teens came back and burned the cover to her hot tub. She also said they put some kind of liquid in the hot tub. “The water in the hot tub did have an unusual smell, like the smell of kerosene or something like that,” the deputy said in the report. Arson investigators were called to the scene. There were no suspects.

Concert aids flood victims

“A Painter at Work” by Paul Cezanne, 1874-75, oil on panel, is in the “Nature as Muse” portion of “Passport to Paris,” and shows the start of “plein air” painting by the Impressionists as oil paints became available in tubes.

Art offers view of French society ‘Passport to Paris’ at Denver museum By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com Three related shows meld together flawlessly at the Denver Art Museum to give local art lovers a welcoming visit to Paris and its environs. Beloved artists appear in more than one collection, showing how they bridged across years and segments of society and from academic standards to joyful renderings of sunshine and the outdoors. “Passport to Paris” continues through Feb. 9, 2014, in the Hamilton Building. “Court to Cafe: Three Centuries of French Artworks from the Wadsworth Atheneum” is the entry point, and it features 50 works from the collection of the famous museum in Hartford, Conn. These works begin with 17th-century paintings of religious scenes, mythological subjects, landscapes, still lifes and genre scenes and extend to the early 19th century. This DAM installation in the second floor Anschutz Gallery is especially welldesigned and features high color, handstenciled walls, architectural moldings and decorative art from the museum’s own collection, such as damask chairs and small furniture pieces. Music plays in the background. Another pleasing touch is the inclusion of several stylish white dresses, matching the ones depicted in paintings of intimate home scenes. They are on loan from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Since works range from the early 1600s to the early 1900s, the visitor finds early works by Edgar Degas, Camille Pissaro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cezanne, Vincent Van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse Lautrec and Claude Monet here, plus later works in the two subsequent exhibits, weaving threads of the story together. Next stop is “Drawing Room: an Intimate Look at French Drawings from the Esmond Bradley Martin Collection,” a collection that is kept at the DAM, although its owner lives elsewhere. It is on the second floor in the Martin and McCormick Gallery. Included are 39 works on paper in a range of techniques. Sketches by artists from across the time period draw a viewer up close to appreciate the lines — in fact, there are some magnifying lenses provided

“Nympheas (Water Lilies)” by Claude Monet, 1907 oil on canvas, is loaned by the Wadsworth Atheneum.

if you go “Passport to Paris” continues through Feb. 9 at the Denver Art Museum, 13th Avenue between Broadway and Bannock, with a special exhibition ticket that includes all three segments plus general museum admission. Tickets cost $12 members/$22 adult non-members, with discounts. See denverartmuseum.org or call 720-865-5000. There will be extended holiday hours — again see the website.

for those who need assistance in appreciating the delicate works. For the first time, Impressionist paintings from the Frederic C. Hamilton collection are shown in what may be the most popular segment: “Nature as Muse.” Some works from the DAM collection are blended into this collection in the Gallagher Family Gallery on the first floor, which focuses on landscape. In a press tour, DAM

director Christoph Heinrich pointed out that oil paints became available in tubes in the mid-1800s, enabling artists to work outdoors in that medium, “en plein air.” Because many Colorado artists prefer to work outdoors, it is expected that they will especially relate to “Nature as Muse” with its sunlit orchards and gardens. Related programming is extensive throughout the exhibit time. See denverartmuseum.org for scheduling. Of particular note is a collaboration with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, which provided a soundtrack for the Court to Cafe exhibit in advance and featured French music in its Nov. 1-3 concerts. Every Saturday at 1 p.m., various symphonic ensembles will present a 45-minute performance at the museum, featuring French masterworks with commentary to place them in context. The first-floor studio space will become a drawing studio, with local artists demonstrating and teaching on weekends.

Colorado Rising, a benefit concert for flood relief featuring performances by Dave Matthews, The Fray, Big Head Todd and The Monsters, Wesley Schultz, Jeremiah Fraites and Neyla Pekarek of The Lumineers, Devotchka and Nathaniel Rateliff, raised $650,000 on Oct. 27 at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield. And from what I was told through emails and Facebook posts, the evening of unprecedented entertainment from Colorado musicians was a smash hit. The money raised will go to www. liveunitedcolorado.org, the United Ways of Colorado Flood Recovery Fund. “It’s no surprise that the entire music community from musicians to fans stepped up in a time of need for Colorado,” said Chuck Morris, president and CEO of concert organizer AEG Live Rocky Mountains. “Thank you all.”

Trivia at Inverness

WorldDenver, a nonprofit community organization dedicated to advancing an understanding of global affairs and cultures, is hosting its first Global Cup Challenge trivia fundraiser from 6 to 10 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center in Arapahoe County. The evening, with beverages sponsored by Molson Coors Brewing Co., will begin with a pub-food-themed buffet dinner following by an international trivia competition. Teams of five will compete in five rounds of questions based on current affairs, geography, businesses and organizations as well as globally minded professionals testing their knowledge to win donated prizes and a year of bragging rights. Celebrity quiz masters include: Kay Landen and Joanne Posner-Mayer (event co-chairs), Carolyn Richards, Joe Megyesy, Katie Evans, Alice Anneberg, Laurie Zeller, Kim Savit, Beverley Simpson and Selena Dunham. Greg Dobbs and Anna Alejo will serve as celebrity quiz masters for the Challenge. Funds raised will support WorldDenver’s programs: Denver World Affairs Council, Young Professionals, International Visitor Leadership Program, Home Hospitality, GlobaLiteracy and WorldDenver Talks. For registration materials, event information and sponsorship opportunities, go to www.globalcupchallenge.org.

Bonnano ventures into Venue

Frank Bonanno is the Denver restaurant industry’s Energizer Bunny. And although he’s built an empire than includes seven restaurants, two bars and a pie shop, he’s busting a move into the hip Highland neighborhood by opening a sandwich shop in the former Venue Bistro space at 3609 E. 32nd Ave., according to a post at the blog www. denver.eater.com. Bonanno intends to offer gourmet sandwiches with housecured meats, according to the Eater story.

Book sheds light on Indian Wars Writer will appear at Tattered Cover LoDo By Sonya Ellingboe

sellingboe@ourcoloradonews.com When co-author Bob Drury appears in Denver on Nov. 14, he should attract many local history buffs who focus on the chaotic 19th-century Western American Indian Wars. He and fellow writer Tom Clavin have just published their account of the Ogalala Sioux chief Red Cloud — described as “the only Plains Indian to IF YOU GO defeat the United States Army in a Author Bob Drury will apwar, forcing the pear at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14 at American govthe Tattered Cover LoDo, ernment to sue 1628 16th St. in Denver, for for peace in a a talk, Q&A and book signconflict named ing. 303-436-1070. for him.” The book is titled “The Heart of Everything That Is,” which is a translation for the Native American “Paha Sapa,” the sacred Black Hills area in what is now South Dakota. More specifically, the mystical “breathing” Wind Cave of the Black Hills is thought to be where the ancient gods delivered the ancestors of Red Cloud and his people. When the “manifest destiny” proponents of the U.S. government eyed the potential gold in the Black Hills as fair game, there followed many years of broken treaties and fierce combat. These authors write in clear descriptive terms about the lands the Sioux controlled at one time — said to be about 20 percent of the contiguous United States, shown on a map that extends from Iowa to Idaho and north into Montana. The Bozeman Trail, a main route for westward gold seekers and other settlers, ran through it. The writers also are skilled in describing the total philosophical disconnect between whites and Indians — not new information certainly, but particularly well stated. An autobiography by Red Cloud, dictated to a longtime friend, white trapper

The extensive bibliography cites the many original sources the authors found, such as writings by the commander of Fort Phil Kearny, Col. Henry B. Carrington. These lend color throughout the book, including domestic details from women and grisly accounts of slaughter. On Dec. 21, a combative Capt. William J. Fetterman, sent out from the fort to protect a wood gathering train — and firmly instructed not to chase lurking Indians over the ridge — gave in to visions of glory and chased Indian scouts who had been teasing. (A final insult was when an insolent Crazy Horse mooned him and his troops, according to Drury and Clavin.) He led his limited number of about 80 Bluecoats into an ambush by about 2,000 waiting warriors, resulting in what is now called the Fetterman Massacre, in which all the members of the Fetterman party were killed.

Greensky Bluegrass comes to Gothic Jam favorites set for two-night run

Two nighTs aT The goThic

By Ryan Boldrey

rboldrey@ ourcoloradonews.com No strangers to the Colorado music scene, Michigan-born jamgrass band Greensky Bluegrass — which opened at Red Rocks for Galactic and Railroad Earth this summer — will grace The Gothic Theatre stage for the first time this coming weekend. The hard-touring quintet will be headlining the Englewood theatre Nov. 15 and 16, with fellow bluegrass band Fruition supporting both nights. The band, which started as a trio playing open mic nights in Kalamazoo, Mich., in 2000, added standup bassist Mike Devol in 2004 and dobro-player extraordinaire Anders Beck in 2007. Playing close to 175 gigs a year, they’ve become a popular headliner at medium-sized clubs across the country, while climbing closer to the headlining slots at festivals with each passing summer. Calling bluegrass “a jumpingoff point for the band,” no two shows are ever the same for the hard-rocking group, which boasts close to 200 songs in its live repertoire. When the band leaves its own catalog behind, which they do four or five times per show, no one ever knows what they are going to hear. Odds are it won’t be

Who: Greensky Bluegrass with special guest Fruition When: 9 p.m. Nov. 15 and 16, doors at 8 p.m. both nights Where: The Gothic Theatre, 3263 S. Broadway, Englewood Tickets: $20 in advance, $25 day of show, $30 for two-day passes in advance Information: www.GreenskyBluegrass. com or www.GothicTheatre.com.

Mike Bont, of Greensky Bluegrass, shreds on the banjo Oct. 24 during the band’s recent gig at the Fox Theatre in Boulder. The Michigan-based band, which sold out the Fox, is playing Englewood’s Gothic Theatre Nov. 15 and 16. Photos by Ryan Boldrey your traditional bluegrass cover though. At their recent soldout, two-night run in Boulder, Greensky covered everything from Bruce Springsteen to String Cheese Incident, Radiohead, Paul Simon, Bob Marley and the Grateful Dead. “We’re all music heads, and love writing, but we also love other people’s music as well,” Beck said. “I think if there weren’t such

strong songwriters in the band, playing covers would feel a little cheaper on some level. But I think it allows us to play unique covers in the set and not let it be the highlight per se. At some level we are just looking for the common denominator with the fans.” And while the Greensky cover selection can kick the energy level of a crowd into high gear, it is the originals, mostly penned by man-

dolin player and lead vocalist Paul Hoffman or guitar player Dave Bruzza, that send the crowd into a frenzy. The band’s recent album, “Handguns,” helped to launch the band’s popularity to the next level, and the decision to give half of it away for free on the Greensky website, SoundCloud and through social media didn’t hurt anything either.

“We just really wanted to get it out there,” Beck said. “We aren’t a household name in most households, but we figured that if you can turn your friends onto liking Greensky Bluegrass by saying, ‘Hey, check it out, it’s free,’ you’ll want to hear more.” Greensky will release its fifth studio album, “If Sorrows Swim,” in February, highlighted by new cuts, “Windshield,” “In Control,” “Worried about the Weather,” and “Leap Year,” all cuts they are already playing on the road. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit www.greenskybluegrass.com or www.gothictheatre.com. Singleday tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show and two-day passes are $30 in advance. Showtime is 9 p.m. Nov. 15 and 16 at The Gothic Theatre, 3263 S. Broadway in Englewood.

crossword • sudoku & weekly horoscope

GALLERY OF GAMES

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) You enjoy the attention early in the week, but it might be a good idea to opt for some privacy by week’s end so that you can have more time to consider an upcoming decision. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) You unearthed some surprising facts. Now you need to consider how to use them to your advantage. Meanwhile, it might be best to keep what you’ve learned secret for now. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) A comment by a colleague piques your curiosity to know more. Best advice: You’ll find people more likely to offer information if you’re discreet when making your inquiries. CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) Your energy levels begin to rise by midweek. This allows you to catch up with your heavy workload and still have plenty of get-up-and-go to go out on the town this weekend. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) You’re probably roaring your head off about a perceived slight from a longtime critic. Ignore it. That person might just be trying to goad you into doing something you might later regret. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) The early part of the week is open to spontaneity. Then it’s time to settle into your usual routine to get all your tasks done. A personal situation could require more attention from you. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) A meeting of the minds on a workplace project might well develop into something more personal for Libras looking for romance. Aspects are also favorable for platonic relationships. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) A more-positive mood might be difficult to assume in light of a recent problem involving the health of someone special. But by week’s end, your emotional barometer should start to rise. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Look for a changed attitude from a former adversary once he or she realizes you have your colleagues’ full support. Now you can refocus your energies on that workplace project. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) This time, a difference of opinion might not be resolved in your favor. But be patient. It ultimately could all work out to your advantage, as new information begins to develop. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) A tug of war develops between the artistic Aquarian’s creative aspect and his or her practical side. Best advice: Prioritize your schedule so you can give appropriate time to both. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) You could be entering a career phase awash with job-related demands. But avoid being swamped by the overflow and, instead, keep treading water as you deal with demands one by one. BORN THIS WEEK: You are an exceptionally loyal person, and you’re respected for your ability to keep the secrets entrusted to you. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Ponderosa advances in soccer playoffs Win over North opens door to semifinals By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Ponderosa has been making noise in the Class 4A soccer playoffs by keeping quiet. The Mustangs moved into the semifinals with a 2-1 overtime victory over Denver North Nov. 2 at All-City Stadium. Junior midfielder Lars Peterson scored both Ponderosa goals. His tally on a penalty kick with 6:50 remaining in overtime won the game. “Ever since we stopped arguing with the refs, things have started going our way a little more,” admitted Ponderosa coach Jim Engels. “We are 6-0 since we decided to

State volleyball on tap in Denver Staff report The state volleyball championships in all five classifications will be held Nov. 8 and 9 at the Denver Coliseum. Twelve teams in each class will compete in four different pools, with one team from each pool advancing to the championship bracket semifinals. The championship matches pitting the semifinal winners will be held at 7 p.m. Nov. 9. Castle View is the No. 12 seed and will be in Pool 1 of the Class 5A tournament. Arapahoe holds down the tourney’s No. 2 seed and will play in Pool 2. No. 4 Mountain Vista and No. 5 Cherry Creek will be in Pool 1. In the Class 4A tournament, No. 7 Ponderosa will compete in Pool 2 and 10th-seeded Valor Christian will be in Pool 3. Defending Class 2A state champion Lutheran drew a No. 2 seed and will start in Pool 2.

shut our mouths and play soccer. “It was a great comeback by the kids against North. That was a good team.” Ponderosa (14-3-1) faced another good team in top-seeded Air Academy (17-1-0) Nov. 6 in a semifinal match at Sports Authority Stadium. The winner advanced to the state championship game, which was to be held Nov. 6 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. North grabbed a 1-0 first-half lead over Ponderosa, and the Vikings could have easily been ahead 3-0 at halftime, but missed on two other excellent scoring chances. “We didn’t play very well in the first half,” said Engels. “They outplayed us the first half. Then I thought we outplayed them the second half and kind of took them out of the game a little bit. “It was just heart and desire and we changed up our lineup a little bit. We got

a little stronger in the midfield and put a little more pressure on them. The first half we gave them so much time they could do what they wanted.” Peterson, who scored on a penalty kick in a 1-0 first round playoff triumph over Kennedy, tied the game in 60th minute when he punched a shot home. “We hadn’t been taking many shots, so why not,” said Peterson. “We need to take more shots to get a goal. Thankfully they didn’t go up more than 1-0 in the first half.” Engels, who gets a little animated during games, was surprised to see Peterson score. “It was an incredible goal, one of the best goals I’ve seen,” explained Engels. “It was just a volley outside the 18 and right under the bar by Lars. That seemed to really change the momentum. “It was a surprise, I guess, because it was

such a great goal, but from that player it is not that big of a surprise because he’s done it a couple times this year. And obviously he’s the one we count on to take our PKs. He buried it.” North was called for a hand ball in the penalty area, and Peterson left little doubt with the game-winning shot. He looked to the right and deposited the shot to the right. “Works every time,” said Peterson. Engels hopes the Mustangs can have fun the remainder of season. “Our goal has been to win the whole thing,” he said. “So we don’t consider this to be a surprise. I think our players were a little tight against North, a little nervous. “We’re going to take a little different approach, a little looser maybe. I think our guys might play a little better if they have some fun and not be so tense.”

Running game carries Huskies past Titans Douglas County rushes for over 500 yards in beating Legend By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com Douglas County has used the same game plan most of the season. The Huskies like to play physical and run the football. Douglas County rushed for 526 yards in a 64-34 first round Class 5A playoff victory over Legend Nov. 1 at Douglas County Stadium. Nothing will change Nov. 8 when 16thseeded Douglas County (7-3) travels to Boulder to take on top-seeded Fairview (90) at Recht Field. “We’ve talked to our kids all year long about being physical and when you get in the playoffs, it is whoever is the top physical, injury-free team,” said Douglas County coach Jeff Ketron. Legend quarterback Peyton Remy

passed for 368 yards and four touchdowns against the Huskies, and Ketron expects to face another aerial attack against Fairview. Fairview averages 328.1 yards per game passing. Senior quarterback Anders Hill has thrown for 2,865 yards and 27 touchdowns. “They are the No. 1 seeded team in the state,” pointed out Ketron. “They are a lot like Legend at throwing the football around. They have a great quarterback, a great receiver and we just have to go play physical football. Obviously our offense will be our best defense. “That’s how it is whether it is college in the bowl season or the NFL, when you get to the later part of the year the offenses are better than the defenses. It’s just that it takes a long time for offenses to jell, and when they do then they are successful.” Douglas County’s running game jelled and spoiled Legend’s first-ever trip to the state playoffs. Trey Smith rushed for 216 yards and four touchdowns, JP Rubino gained 128

yards and a TD and quarterback Rope Ruel added 111 yards rushing and two scores. “It felt good,” said Rubino. “Our linemen worked hard on being physical and we tried to beat them down and it worked out well. “We have to work hard and not take this being cocky. We have to focus on Fairview and just hit them hard. As long as we play as a team and work hard, I feel like we can come out and rush for another 500 yards.” Legend wound up the season with a 6-4 record. Remy is a junior but the Titans’ top two receivers, Elijah Cherrington and Cody Dengal, are seniors, along with running back Joshua Miskol. Cherrington caught 10 passes for 213 yards and two TDs against the Huskies while Dengal had five catches for 99 yards and a touchdown. “We had a good season,” said Legend coach Rob Doyle. “It was our first trip to the playoffs and first winning season. We were disappointed in the result of the game but very proud of what our kids accomplished this year.”

McPherson’s preps career nearly perfect Creek senior garners four state tennis titles By Jim Benton

jbenton@ourcoloradonews.com There are trite notions that nothing or nobody is perfect. Connor McPherson admits he isn’t perfect but it’s pretty hard to argue that his recently completed high school career wasn’t near-perfect. McPherson won his second consecutive state No. 2 singles championship Oct. 12 at Gates Tennis Center after capturing the No. 3 doubles titles as a freshman and sophomore. The Cherry Creek High School senior was selected as the Colorado Community Media South Metro Tennis Player of the Year. Cherry Creek set a team scoring record in winning the state championship for the 38th time in 41 years, and McPherson added a fourth state title to his resume. “There was definitely a lot more pressure this year because everybody was talking about it (winning a fourth title),” he said. “It was definitely in the back of my mind, but I tried to keep it in the back of my mind, focus on what I had to do and try not to make it too big of a deal.

PICKING THE ATHLETES OF THE YEAR CHOOSING COLORADO Community Media’s South Metro Athletes of the Year was a combined effort. Area coaches were asked for their thoughts, and their input was weighed heavily when CCM’s sports staff made the final selection for each sport. ELIGIBLE ATHLETES come from all the high schools in Douglas County, the high schools in the Littleton Public Schools District and from Cherry Creek High School.

“It was the perfect season. I couldn’t have seen it going any better. Sweeping state hasn’t happened since 1998. To be able to go out senior year like that was just incredible.” McPherson, however, wasn’t flawless. He finished the season 20-1, with his one loss coming against eventual Class 4A No. 2 singles champion Willie Gold of Kent Denver. “Definitely that helped me,” said McPherson. “I lost at least a match every year and it kind of wakes you up, makes you realize you have to keep working hard and it’s not going to be easy. It pushed me to work that much harder.” McPherson was unable to play No. 1

singles this fall when Zach Fryer returned to Creek for his senior season after playing USTA events. Fryer was unbeaten, and was the state’s No. 2 singles champion as a Creek sophomore and captured the state No. 1 singles title last month. “Of course I wanted to be No. 1,” confessed McPherson. “I tried hard for it. Zach’s my good friend. I’m happy he came back and played with us. He helped the team out a lot. “He and I definitely pushed each other, especially in practice. We were always working to make each other better. We definitely have that competitive edge with each other but we just pushed each other and made each other better.” McPherson started playing tennis with his dad when he was 10 years ago and then a few years later had to tab tennis rather than baseball as the sport he wanted to pursue. “I feel like I have improved immensely since my freshman year,” said McPherson. “The best way to improve is hitting with people that are better than you. “That’s what I got a chance to do through my four years, and playing doubles was great for my game. You get all aspects of the game through doubles. Even though I wouldn’t be able to be at the top position, being able to play with the best of the best is pretty cool.”

Ponderosa 10th at state gymnastics Cherry Creek finishes fifth in competition By Scott Stocker

Special to Colorado Community Media Cherry Creek’s Sela Buted wished she could have done a bit better in the Class 5A state gymnastics meet at Thornton High School on Nov. 1-2. But when an individual comes away with a gold medal in at least one event, there are certainly smiles. Buted scored a solid 9.775 to win gold on the balance beam, just edging Broomfield’s Sarah Holbrook, who scored 9.725. Yet, she had hoped that her team could have done a lot better as well. Overland just nipped Broomfield for

the team championship with a score of 187.95 to Broomfield’s 187.5. Cherry Creek, coached by Melissa Holmberg, had to settle for fifth in the team standings, scoring 182.575. Buted tied for second on floor with Holbrook, scoring 9.65, but the tiebreaker went to her opponent, thus taking home the bronze medal instead. She did not qualify for the finals in either the uneven bars or vault. The floor was won by Overland’s Devin Bundas (9.675). “This whole season we’ve worked hard and today we had one of our best meets of the season,” Buted said. “Thankfully, it comes at state. We did the best with what we have right now. We pushed hard and I’m so proud of our team. Ponderosa finished 10th in the team competition with 173.225 points

“The girls did better than we thought and it has just been great, just unexplainable as to how they’ve been able to react and exceed expectations,” Ponderosa coach Lisa Fischer said during the Nov. 1 competition. “This has been one of the most fun state meets and I just don’t know how we’ll finish. I’ve just been so excited for the girls. This is a very young team and this is such a valuable experience.” The Ponderosa girls were excited, but they, too, knew they were in for a very competitive weekend. There was disappointment on not reach the finals, but they looked upon it as a good key for next season. While not coming away with medals, the Mustangs’ Miranda Mickelsen, McKenna Moede and Cara Redalen were pleased with how the season finished.

Calm After the Storm

“I was staying focused and happy and just wanted to make sure that I was able to try my best,” said Miranda Mickelsen. “I’m a senior and this is my last time. I just wanted to throw it all out on the floor and overcome any obstacles. I had my high this season on beam. I’m so sad the season is over.” “The key for me was having the team here,” said Moede. “We’ve worked hard together and we didn’t have our best floor. I just wanted to stay focused. I was excited as this was the first time we’ve made it in four years. I think this is a good way to get us ready for next season.” Added Redalen: “Floor seemed to bring out the best in all of us and we had our best score this season as a team. I was excited.

‘American Mustang’ coming to museum By Staff report The Wildlife Experience and Denver Film Society are partnering to screen “American Mustang” during the Starz Denver Film Festival. The 36th Starz Denver Film Festival, sponsored by Starz Entertainment and produced by the Denver Film Society, announced its full festival lineup, and The Wildlife Experience is screening “American Mustang” on Nov. 10.

“American Mustang” is a documentary presented in 3-D that examines the plight of wild horses in the American West while considering their place in the national psyche. Produced by area native, Ellie Phipps Price, the film combines a historical overview with sweeping footage of its majestic four-legged protagonists. The film also weaves in a narrative interlude involving a young woman on a quest to help protect the

mustangs and a modern-day cowboy who shows us what it’s like to break a stallion by gently earning its trust. Tickets are on sale for $10 in advance or $12 at the door (if available), or by calling 720-488-3344. Doors open at 6 p.m. Film begins at 7 p.m. The filmmakers will be attending to introduce the film and answer questions. For more information, visit www.thewildlifeexperience.org and click on the “movies” tab.
