Documents reveal dispute over resource officer contract, duties STEM’s deal for an SRO was not renewed after 2017-18 school year BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
Documents show disagreement, and some underlying tension, led to the discontinuation of a contract that provided a school resource officer at STEM School Highlands Ranch. The school’s security was put in the spotlight following a May 7 shooting that left one student dead and eight others wounded. The school contracts with the private security company BOSS High Level Protection, an arrangement that followed the end of STEM’s contract with the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office following the 2017-18 school year. A security guard was on site at the time of the shooting and reportedly helped detain one of the suspects. In a May 10 news release, Sheriff Tony Spurlock said STEM had not been making the best use of its school resource officer’s time and provided 20 pages of documents detailing the relationship between DCSO and the school.

an email to the sheriff ’s office and Bronner on May 18, 2018. Spurlock agreed to forgo billing STEM for the last four months of the contract but elected not to renew the contract for the following school year. STEM didn’t provide an office space for the SRO — a stipulation of the contract — and mainly used the SRO to mitigate traffic, according to a letter from Spurlock to Eucker on June 20, 2018. “I am sorry that STEM School is dissatisfied with the services we have provided,” Spurlock says in the letter. “It appears we do not share a common understanding of the role our school resource officers play in educating our community’s youth and protecting our schools.” STEM paid $26,925 for an SRO for the 2017-18 school year, the same amount as SkyView Academy, according to a copy of the contract. The sheriff ’s office covered the remaining $53,850. Spurlock agreed to refund STEM $6,731.50 for the four months the assigned SRO was absent. After several meetings between officials from STEM and the sheriff ’s office, Eucker opted to contract with a private security company for the 2018-19 school year and requested a deputy from the sheriff ’s office for up to three hours a day to assist with traffic.
Private security guard detained suspect, company’s owner says BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
One security guard from BOSS High Level Protection was at STEM School Highlands Ranch at the time of the shooting that killed one student and injured eight others, the company’s owner, Grant Whitus, told Colorado Community Media on May 8. The guard found and took into custody one of the two suspects, Whitus said. “My feelings are, if it wasn’t for his response and the quick Douglas County Sheriff ’s response, this could’ve been one of the worst school shootings ever with two shooters and the number of people in that school,” said Whitus, a former Jefferson County SWAT team leader who responded to the Columbine High School attack in 1999. STEM, a K-12 charter school, has been contracting with the company for about a year, according to Whitus. He would not say if the guards are armed. Penny Eucker, STEM’s executive director, said the school employs one guard for eight hours a day. The school also has a standing order with the sheriff ’s office in which, if
requested, an off-duty deputy’s vehicle will assist for up to three hours a day, Eucker said. Previously, the school shared a school resource officer with a nearby charter, SkyView Academy, according to Eucker. In the current situation, Eucker said, a familiar security guard walks the entire campus and, when needed, an off-duty deputy assists with traffic. Whitus’ company, comprising men and women with military backgrounds, provides security for “a lot of private schools,” Whitus said. The guard who took down one of the STEM shooters is a Marine Corps combat veteran who previously worked at the Jefferson County Sheriff ’s Office, according to Whitus. He declined to provide the name of the guard. At a media briefing the morning of May 8, Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said he believed one of the suspects was detained by a privately contracted security guard when officers first encountered them in the school. BOSS, based in Greenwood Village, specializes in security for “schools, religious buildings and businesses of all kinds,” according to its website.

Commissioners eye $10 million to enhance school safety Law enforcement wants more school resource officers; public offers ideas for safety, support BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
Jennifer Thompson Consolo and her family had no idea her daughter was being bullied and had begun selfharming during her sophomore year at Douglas County High School. They also didn’t know she was forming a plan to take her life. But a friend grew brave enough to “break her trust” and tell a school counselor that her daughter was not OK, Thompson Consolo said. The counselor pulled the girl out of class, told her parents what was happening and together they got Abigail help. The 18-year-old, who has since transferred schools and moved out of state, is about to graduate high school and is thriving, her mother said. Still, schools are in desperate need of curriculum that incorporates mental health and teaches students how to support one another. Thompson Consolo believes that’s one way to prevent more violence against schools.
Her perspective was one of many pieces of public testimony during a special work session held by Douglas County commissioners May 13 as they discussed allocating $10 million to heighten school safety in Douglas County. The meeting was in response to the May 7 shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch that left one student dead and eight students injured. Commissioners unanimously approved directing staff to prepare a supplemental budget item for their May 28 meeting that allocates the onetime $10 million toward school safety. That is when the decision to dedicate $10 million toward public safety will be formally considered. Their work session motion named “physical entryway security technology and mental health services for children,” as well as “a community response team for kids in schools, with the option to consider safety onsite specialists” and to “specifically train school resource officers dedicated solely to school security.” These work sessions are public but rarely attended by residents and typically held in a small conference room on an upper level of the county building. For the May 13 meeting, commissioners met in their larger hearing room and opened overflow seating in anticipation of large public turnout. As expected, dozens filled seats from the front to the back of the room. Fol-
lowing their meeting, commissioners opened the floor to public comment. Thankful, but more support needed Students, parents and concerned citizens urged more mental health support in schools, heightened security measures such as metal detectors, more school resource officers throughout the system and additional funding for ongoing expenses related to preventing school shootings. Many thanked commissioners for the $10 million but said it was not enough, calling it a Band-Aid. Some parents and students said with current security measures in Douglas County schools, they fear anyone could get in the building or smuggle in weapons. And they were tired, numerous said, of hearing the same conversations held time and time again in the 20 years since the Columbine High School tragedy. Ultimately, residents called for action now. Commissioners had encouraged the public to share their thoughts and bring “out-of-the-box” ideas forward for addressing school safety. A group advocating more sales tax dollars be put toward public safety discussed their proposal. A man suggested incorporating a watchdog program that periodically inspects safety protocols at schools. Noah Buckley, who attends school online, suggested a club that brings
students together to discuss their mental health in a safe space. Going to a counselor can be uncomfortable, he said, but talking to peers could break the ice. Anna Keesen, 18, a senior at Douglas County High School, said she didn’t know the answer, but she believed students needed more education about mental health and managing stress. “What to do when everything seems to fall apart,” she said. Castle View High School junior Mattysen Short, 17, skipped class to speak at the meeting and ensure student voices were heard, she said. She supports adding more school resource officers in the system and more mental health education. Right now, she said, she is scared to go to school. “It’s hard to focus on your school work,” she said. Not enough school resource officers It’s unclear how the $10 million will be spent if re-appropriated, but the money would remain under the board’s management. It comes from county reserves — funds not used in 2018 — and will be replenished by property tax revenue. Because they are public funds, the money must go toward public schools. SEE SAFETY, P25

STEM denies allegations made by anonymous parent School filed lawsuit for ‘defamatory statements’ BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
The executive director of STEM School Highlands Ranch adamantly denies allegations made by an anonymous school parent that STEM’s climate and culture are out of control. “I can’t even fathom why someone would fabricate these sort of statements,” Penny Eucker said when reached by phone on May 9. The allegations were the focus of an article published by CNN.com on May 9, two days after a shooting at the school that killed one student, Kendrick Castillo, and injured eight others. Among the allegations that were made in December 2018 were rampant drug use, bullying, concerns about violence and misuse of school funds. In an emailed statement through a public relations company on May 9, STEM said school officials investigated the allegations months earlier and found them to be false. “At STEM School Highlands Ranch, our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and the STEM community,” the statement says. “We investigate every complaint and concern, regardless of the source. This includes threats, bullying, allegations of criminal behavior and/or
mental health concerns.” STEM, a K-12 charter school of about 1,800 students, had been asked to do an investigation by a Douglas County School District official after the accusations came to light. Like other charter schools in the district, STEM has its own governing body and operates autonomously — though the school receives public funding and must have its charter renewed by the school district’s board of education. Candice Craig, a parent of three STEM students, said she was disappointed to see the allegations surface in the media. The school has a strong community, she said, adding that her kids thrive in the “hands-on” learning environment. “We need to heal right now,” Craig said. “We don’t need to be part of the collective voice.” On Dec. 19, Daniel Winsor, director of choice programing at Douglas County School District, sent an email to Eucker outlining allegations made by the anonymous parent to school board member Wendy Vogel via phone. Vogel reported certain information to the Department of Human Services and the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office, and the district requested the charter school investigate the allegations to determine their legitimacy, according to the email. Vogel did not respond to a request for comment for this article. One of the concerns the anonymous

‘Our school districts are strong. Our communities are strong’ Community rallies support; mental health resources abound BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
In the aftermath of tragedy, mental health experts point to resources and encourage the community to stay resilient. “We are strong. Colorado is strong,” said Dr. Sarah Davidon, research director at Mental Health Colorado, a nonprofit organization that advocates for the treatment and prevention of mental health and substance-use disorders. “Our school districts are strong. Our communities are strong.” Colorado knows the sequence of events all too well. The May 7 shoot-
ing at STEM School Highlands Ranch that left one student dead and eight others injured adds to a list of mass shootings the state has experienced. Anxiety and tension following such a tragedy are common feelings in adults and children, Davidon said. It’s important for young people to know they are safe, their schools are safe and their feelings are validated. “Kids sense a lot of anxiety and tension in the adults around them,” Davidon said. “Certainly we want to let children know that when something like this happens, it’s OK to feel these things.” Individuals process trauma differently. Some may react within weeks of a tragedy. For others it may take weeks or months, according to mental health organizations. Symptoms to look for in children are a hyper-focus on death, problems with eating and sleeping, changes
in behavior and school avoidance, according to Child Mind Institute, a nonprofit organization that advocates for family mental health. In adults, responses to trauma may include flashbacks or nightmares, fear, edginess, social isolation and changes in mood.

‘We need to grieve’ BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
Mountainview Christian Church in Highlands Ranch held a prayer service and candlelight vigil May 8 memorializing the victims of the STEM School shooting the day before. Senior pastor Ken Hensley led the service, which featured song and prayer from leaders of the church. At the end of the service, the congregation sang “Amazing Grace” while holding candles to remember the victims, students and families of the school — which is just down the road from the church — especially Kendrick Castillo, who died to protect others during the shooting. Hensley described his experience at the Northridge Recreation Center, where parents were taken to reunite with their children. He talked about the different emotions he saw — from worry and confusion to relief and love. He spoke about how he saw families coming together, evident by one family of four, with one high school-aged and one middle schoolaged student, holding hands walking down Broadway. “We need to grieve,” he said. “We need to express our doubt, we need to express our anger, but in the end, if you are a person of faith, and you

Community comes together after tragedy Vigils and services are held in days after shooting at STEM BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
Doug Cunningham, wearing a neon yellow vest and holding a large umbrella, stood at the entrance of Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch. Under a gray sky, as heavy rain poured down, he walked adults, teens and children from their cars to the building. The church volunteer didn’t know Kendrick Castillo, the 18-year-old who was killed in the May 7 shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch, or any of the other eight other students who were injured. “I just got a heart for kids,” Cunningham said. Cherry Hills was one of several churches and schools across the community that held vigils and services the evening of May 8 to provide a space for people to grieve, to honor those injured and affected by the tragedy.

‘He was an angel among us’ Kendrick Castillo was killed while saving others, classmates say BY ALEX DEWIND ADEWIND@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
Kendrick Castillo was kind, talented, a hero. Castillo was killed in the May 7 shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch. He was less than two weeks away from graduation. His senior quote: “The most difficult roads lead us to the most beautiful places.” Penny Eucker, executive director of STEM, called Castillo the “glue of the senior class.” He was always positive, she said. Everyone who met him felt safe with him. “He did have a transcendent smile and he was an angel among us,” Eucker said, holding back tears. “When people say be kind, he was the definition of that.” Castillo, 18, charged a shooter who had entered his classroom in an effort to save others, classmates said. Castillo was a member of FIRST Robotics Competition Team 4418, according to a Facebook post from FIRST. He was also among the first students to intern at Panther Industries, an automated labeling equipment manufacturer in Highlands Ranch, just down the road from STEM. Then just

Brendan Kerr, a sophomore at STEM, looked up to Castillo, he said. They were in a physical education class together. “He was a good friend,” Kerr said.
“I’ll remember him as a hero.” STEM student Nui Giasolli told NBC’s “Today’’ show that she was in her British literature class when one of the two suspects came in and pulled out a gun.

He was my baby.” Four days earlier, Maria and her husband John had lost their 18-yearold son, Kendrick Castillo, the sole fatality in the May 7 school shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch. Eight other students were injured in the attack. The two suspects are in custody. Classmates say Kendrick charged one of the shooters to protect other students. That didn’t surprise the people closest to him. “He was one of the most genuine and compassionate people I have ever met,” said Mike Shallenberger, an engineering teacher at STEM who taught Kendrick all four years of high school, as he sat on the Castillos’ back porch. “You don’t meet people like that but once in a lifetime.” The afternoon of Mother’s Day, Maria stood near the front door of her southwest Denver home, tucked in a quiet neighborhood lined with modest single-family houses and spacious backyards. She softly greeted teenagers and parents and directed them to the living room, where John was telling stories of Kendrick to the intimate

Bialy said he and another classmate, who was injured and did not want to be identified, helped Castillo bring the suspect down. Bialy, who was not injured, said Castillo was interested in cars and the two met in an internal combustion class at STEM. Bialy said the two of them would cruise around and just talk or watch funny videos together. “Kendrick Castillo died a legend,” Bialy said. “He died a trooper... I love that kid.” Rachel Short said Castillo was a funny and empathetic person who loved others and was a part-time employee at her manufacturing company, Baccara USA, based in Englewood. “To find he went down as a hero, I’m not surprised,” Short said. “That’s exactly who Kendrick was.” Cecilia Bedard, 19, knew Castillo since elementary school and said he was always friendly, modest and excited to help people. He made a point of always joining his father at Knights of Columbus fundraisers and bingo nights. “He was amazing,’’ Bedard said. “He was honestly the sweetest kid I ever met.

As a young child he would dismantle his toys, inspecting every inner working, and put them back together in new formations. Whenever he’d get a new gadget, he’d invite his friends over to share in his excitement. The father-son duo enjoyed weekend hunting trips, fishing trips and campouts. They never had much luck but that didn’t matter, as long as they were together. They spent many nights in the backyard, working on old cars. Kendrick loved cars. Kendrick’s parents, who both work in the hotel industry — Maria is a chef and John a chief engineer — prioritized spending time with their son. Eating meals together was important. The three of them would sit on the couch in the evening and eat bowls of ice cream. “I don’t know if I will ever be able to eat another bowl of ice cream again,” his father said. Kendrick attended Notre Dame Catholic School in Denver for middle and elementary school. When it came to choosing a high school, he wasn’t thrilled with any of the local, neighborhood options, which had a large focus on traditional sports. His passion was engineering and electronics. On his first tour of STEM, Kendrick was like a kid in a candy store, John said. He was especially enthralled with the expansive engineering room. The Castillo family applied for the SEE CASTILLO, P9

It was instinct. “It was immediate, non-hesitation,” Bialy, an aspiring Marine, said. “There was no questioning, there was no hesitation, there was no looking around.” Bialy said he, Kendrick Castillo and another student subdued one of the suspects who had entered their classroom in the May 7 shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch that left eight students injured and one dead. Castillo was killed and the other student was wounded and did not want to be identified, said Bialy, who was not injured. Bialy said he and a teacher put compression on the chest of Castillo after he had been shot. “What I saw yesterday was the absolute best of people,” Bialy said at a May 8 press conference. “I got to see two heroes, two regular high school kids, two awesome people,

charter school, which uses a lottery system for enrollment, and won. “His face lit up ear-to-ear,” John said. Kendrick was on two robotics teams and part of the school’s Technology Student Association. Even in highpressure competitions, he would stop what he was doing to help other students, said Jordon Monk, one of his best friends, who was visiting Kendrick’s parents on Mother’s Day. Kendrick was a mentor, a friend to all. After high school he planned to attend Arapahoe Community College for two years and then Colorado State University or the University of Colorado at Boulder. He wanted to be an electrical or mechanical engineer. “He had a lot of hopes and dreams,” John said. “Most of his hopes and dreams always included the people he loved.” When Monk wasn’t at his own house in Highlands Ranch, he was at Kendrick’s. The two would play video games, go for drives in Kendrick’s beloved Jeep and take a golf cart parked in the backyard for a spin. At school they’d often get the classroom off topic with their amiable banter. “The only thing he loved more than his Jeep was the people inside,” Monk said. “Everyone went to him for help.” ‘We have to be better people’ John was eating lunch at a Chickfil-A near his work at the Denver Tech Center on May 7 when a colleague texted: “Doesn’t Kendrick go to STEM? There is an active shooter.” He called his wife and raced to Northridge Recreation Center, where
jump into action without any hesitation. I was more than lucky to join them in doing that action. Somebody entered the building with incredibly malicious intent, using their cowardice, surprise and superior weapons, and they lost. They completely and utterly lost to good people.” Bialy, of Castle Rock, said the incident will give him the confidence to act when called upon when he begins service. He is currently a poolee in the Marine Corps Delayed Entry Program, a program people enlist in before being shipped to basic training. A poolee is a person who has already signed up to become a Marine but has not left for the 13 weeks of recruit training. The U.S. Marine Corps released a statement in response to Bialy’s efforts. “Brendan’s courage and commitment to swiftly ending this tragic incident at the risk of his own safety is admirable and inspiring,” the statement reads. “His decisive actions resulted in the safety and protection of his teachers and fellow classmates.”
John Castillo, Kendrick’s father
Kendrick Castillo helps a classmate at STEM High School in Highlands Ranch. Castillo “had a lot of hopes and dreams,” his father said. COURTESY PHOTO parents were being reunified with their children. He parked in a nearby neighborhood, jumped a fence and scanned the crowd — his anxiety skyrocketing. Cop cars were everywhere. People were hysterical. He texted Kendrick and called over and over. No response. John, who coached a robotics team at the school, used an app to try to get in touch with the group of kids. Names began popping up. They were safe, they wrote. “Kendrick’s name never came up,” John said. He and Maria caught word that Kendrick might be at a local hospital. A police officer raced them to Littleton Adventist, where they were pulled
aside into a small room. A nurse asked them to provide any identifying factors of their son. He wore Ray-Ban reading glasses, John told the nurse. She said she was so sorry. The Castillos went home that evening and collapsed on the couch in the spot where Kendrick used to lay. “I felt like it wasn’t real,” John said. “We kept hoping we would hear his Jeep exhaust in the driveway.” Part of him wishes his son would have run or hid, John said. But that wasn’t Kendrick. He was selfless, valiant. In the aftermath of tragedy, he would have wanted his parents to think about the teacher in that classroom, the students in that school, his dad said. Kendrick wouldn’t want
them to think about his death. As the STEM community tries to make sense of it all, John doesn’t want to see people blaming guns or the school building’s safety. The solutions are simpler than that, he said. “We have to be better people,” he said. “If you are going to have kids in this world, you need to be all in.” Shallenberger, Kendrick’s engineering teacher, echoed that sentiment. Now, more than ever, people need to put down their phones and be present. “We just need to love each other,” Shallenberger said. “We need to reengage with one another.” The grief is overwhelming for the Castillos, who say they feel like they’ve lost their purpose. What’s helping them heal is the strong support from the community. They want to hear stories of their son. They want those who knew Kendrick to reach out to talk. They want their son to be remembered as the “extraordinary” young man he was. “I’d like the world to know that he’s just not your normal person,” John said. “He is special.”

It can be found at www.coloradogives.org/ STEMstrong “All donations received through this campaign will be used for the benefit of our impacted students. Thank you for your support during this time,” the website states. In addition, a fund started last year to help victims of mass tragedy has been activated in the aftermath of the STEM shooting that left one student dead and eight wounded. The Colorado Healing Fund is chaired by former Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman and the nonprofit organization’s board of trustees, according to a news release. “The Colorado Healing Fund exists to serve as the trusted, statewide organization for the collection of public donations in the aftermath of a mass tragedy,” Coffman said in the release. “Donations from caring Colora-
dans can be channeled to organizations working directly with victims of this terrible tragedy. If you want to help, we encourage you to give through the Colorado Healing Fund and know your generosity will help victims, survivors, families and the STEM School Highlands Ranch community in the weeks and months ahead.” Donations can be made by visiting ColoradoHealingFund.org and donating through Colorado Gives. Checks and in-person donations will be accepted at Colorado-based FirstBank locations. Donors should make checks out to “Colorado Healing Fund” and designate their donation for “victims accounts” to bank tellers.

STEM shooting: what is known so far STAFF REPORT
Nine students were shot shortly before 2 p.m. May 7 at STEM School Highlands Ranch. Here are key details known to Colorado Community Media as of May 13: • STEM senior Kendrick Castillo was killed. Castillo was shot while trying to save others from one of the armed suspects, classmates have said. • Eight students were wounded. All students have been treated and released from area hospitals. • Two suspects, both STEM students, were arrested. One is Devon Erickson, 18. He was booked on 29 counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of firstdegree murder, according to court records. The other suspect is a juvenile. The sheriff ’s office is identifying the suspect as a female, but the suspect’s lawyer says his client uses male pronouns, such as “he.” That suspect will not be identified
by Colorado Community Media unless charged as an adult by the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. It was not immediately known what charges this suspect will face. • Authorities say two handguns were found at the scene during the early stages of their investigation. No motive for the shooting has been given by authorities. • Both suspects made their first court appearance on May 8. A second court appearance scheduled for May 10 was postponed until Wednesday, May 15, at the Douglas County Justice Center in Castle Rock. • STEM School Highlands Ranch is a K-12 charter school of about 1,800 students at 8773 S. Ridgeline Blvd., west of Broadway and south of C-470. STEM does not have a school resource officer, but employs a private security firm. A security guard was at the school the day of the shooting, and the owner of the security company says the guard helped detain one of the suspects. SEPTEMBER 21, 2018

STEM shooting suspects Step-up being held without bond your savings:
Teens make first court appearances in Castle Rock BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
The two teenagers arrested on suspicion of shooting nine students at STEM School Highlands Ranch, killing 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo, appeared in court for the first time on May 8 at hearings attended by students who survived the shooting and Castillo’s family. One of the suspects is Devon Erickson, a STEM student who is being held at the Douglas County jail without bond. Erickson, 18, was booked on one count of first-degree murder and 29 counts of attempted first-degree murder, according to court records. The second suspect is a juvenile student at STEM, also being held without bond, and it was not immediately known what charges were pending. Colorado Community Media will not identify the juvenile suspect, who is 16, unless that suspect is charged as an adult. Both suspects were expected to be formally charged on May 15 after a May 10 hearing was postponed. The morning of May 8, Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said authorities mistakenly identified the juvenile suspect as a male the day of the shooting only to learn after conducting further interviews the suspect was female. He could not confirm how the suspect identifies, but said the department was considering the suspect female. A defense attorney for the suspect told District 1 Judge Theresa Slade at the May 8 hearings in Castle Rock the teenager uses “he” pronouns and a different name from what was listed on the docket. Two handguns were recovered during the investigation of the May 7 shooting, Spurlock said. Eighteenth Judicial District Attorney George Brauchler said he had not yet decided on charges for the suspects or if he would pursue charging the 16-year-old as an adult. If he does, the court ultimately decides whether the case would remain a juvenile case or not, he said. Charging the suspect as an adult would change the type of sentence he could face if found guilty. “This is the beginning of what’s likely to be a long process,” Brauchler said after the hearing. When officers brought Erickson into the courtroom, he barely looked up — face buried under thick hair dyed half black and half a bright
‘These are people that are still dealing with the fact that a little more than a day ago they had a son. Now they don’t.’ George Brauchler, 18th Judicial District attorney pink. He stooped deep in his chair and did not speak except for when Slade required he verbally answer a question instead of shaking his head. The 16-year-old, with short, cropped hair and a gray collared shirt, sat upright and looked up at the judge for most of his hearing. Seated in the courtroom were Castillo’s parents. The family did not comment during the hearing. “These are people that are still dealing with the fact that a little more than a day ago they had a son,” Brauchler later told reporters. “Now they don’t.” Also in attendance was 17-yearold Jack Denler, a junior at STEM. Denler said he was in the hall when the shooting broke out on May 7. As alarms started to ring, he rushed to his classroom and took cover. Denler heard two loud sounds, which he later realized were gunshots. Slade temporarily granted a motion from the people to suppress the case file entirely. Brauchler said the motion was temporary, and he would move to release the documents later. Slade also issued protection orders against both suspects that prohibit them from contacting victims named in the order, consuming alcohol or drugs, possessing firearms, visiting STEM or contacting each other. Brauchler said he would have 63 days following an arraignment to give notice of his plans on whether to pursue the death penalty. Before hearing room doors opened May 8, a group of people, including the juvenile suspect’s mother, stood huddled in a circle in the hallway, looking down and staying mostly silent. They did not respond to media requests for comment between their arrival and the start of the hearing.

STEM students walk out of shooting vigil amid frustration Event falls into disorder; students decried political aspect
WHAT SPEAKERS SAID “This community has lived through Columbine, Aurora and now STEM. We are failing. We are failing when this happens over and over again and nothing happens … You already have my thoughts and prayers, but … you and your children deserve more.”
BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
A vigil that brought politicians, activists and several hundred students and parents to Highlands Ranch High School after the nearby STEM School shooting devolved into chaos and chants, with many students expressing frustration with the event’s political overtones on gun policy. “Let STEM kids speak!” shouted one voice in the crowd May 8 during the event organized by Brady, which describes itself as a gun violence prevention organization. A day earlier, eight students were wounded and one — 18-year-old Kendrick Ray Castillo — was killed in a shooting at STEM. The vigil crowd at Highlands Ranch High’s gymnasium heard addresses from U.S. Rep. Jason Crow, U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, area students and activists, but a long line of students decried the lack of speaking time for STEM students. Kallie Leyba, the president of the Douglas County School District’s teachers’ union, had her speech cut short by the student yelling for organizers to let STEM students address the crowd. Leyba responded that
— Democratic U.S. Rep. Jason Crow “Our kids have enough to do. Our kids have a job to do. Their job is not to fix America’s broken gun laws. Their job is not as Kendrick (Castillo) did yesterday, to so selflessly give up their lives” for others. — U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, a Democrat running for president “We’re working hard to elect gun-sense candidates like Jason (Crow) … together, we will stop this epidemic of gun violence.” Students, including some from STEM School Highlands Ranch, hold up lit-up phones outside Highlands Ranch High School after walking out of a May 8 vigil amid frustration over STEM students not getting speaking time.

organizers hadn’t been able to coordinate with students from STEM before the event. “We’re right here,” a student in the crowd replied, to applause from the crowd. What began then was an unraveling of the event that laid bare the frustrations students had with its format.
Leyba told the STEM students in the crowd to come out into the hallway from the gym so organizers could rework the schedule to allow them to speak. Applause erupted when more than a dozen students who appeared to be from STEM left the bleachers and exited the gym. But just as the lights dimmed and cellphone flashlights turned on for a moment dedicated to the shooting’s victims, a woman identifying herself only as a mother walked up to the lectern and spoke into the microphone. She said the media had told STEM students to leave. Inside the gym, it wasn’t clear what spurred that statement. Many reporters taking video and photos were in attendance, and some followed students into the hall. Large parts of the crowd then stood up and funneled into the hallway amid murmurs about the media. Confusion and disorder took over the crowd, finding some STEM students and others — a few dozen people — gathered outside the school’s front doors. SEE WALKOUT, P16

District attorney on school shooting: ‘Here we are again’ Brauchler discusses effect of STEM shooting on community BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM

‘We’ve practiced for this’ BY DAVID GILBERT DGILBERT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
First responders descended on STEM School Highlands Ranch within moments of the initial 911 call, said South Metro Fire Rescue spokesman Eric Hurst, and years of training paid off. “We’ve practiced for this,” Hurst said. “It’s about following the experience we all have, and applying it to a real-world worst-case scenario.” South Metro joined forces with Aurora Fire Rescue, West Metro Fire Rescue, Denver Fire Department and ambulances from as far away as Bennett and Strasburg. All told, 79 vehicles, 148 fire and medical personnel and three medical helicopters responded to the scene of the May 7 shooting that left one student dead and eight injured, Hurst said. The emotional toll of responding to a mass-casualty incident can be
intense for first responders, Hurst said, but in the moment, their training takes over. “It’s really beyond just doing tasks like applying tourniquets,” Hurst said. “Through our training sessions, they get accustomed to screams and sounds of gunfire. In the aftermath of the incident, when we have time to unwind and the adrenaline dissipates, that’s when the impact sinks in.” South Metro provides all its personnel with resources to deal with the trauma of horrible scenes, Hurst said, including peer support members, post-traumatic stress service dogs and mental health professionals. Years of coordination with other agencies was evident during the shooting, Hurst said. “This was a regional response,” Hurst said. “We were calling on neighbors to come and back us up. I’m thankful for them, and thankful we didn’t have more injuries than we did.”

Eighteenth Judicial District Attorney George Brauchler lived in a home in Highlands Ranch for 18 years. His four children are in the Douglas County school system. His wife’s business is roughly one mile from the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office substation in Highlands Ranch. Brauchler He knows the area
well. After all, he “grew up in these parts,” Brauchler, now a Parker resident, said. And if someone had told him that within 20 miles and 20 years of tragedies including the Columbine High School shooting of 1999, the Aurora theater shooting (which Brauchler prosecuted) of 2012, and the Arapahoe High School shooting
in 2013, there would be another fatal shooting in his community, he’d have thought they were “mad.” “Yet, here we are again,” he said May 8. One more school shooting was the reality as Brauchler spoke to media from the Highlands Ranch substation one day after two suspected student shooters entered STEM School Highlands Ranch and allegedly opened fire on their classmates. Senior Kendrick Castillo, 18, was killed, and eight other students were wounded. One student remained hospitalized in fair condition as of May 10 — at Littleton Adventist, according to a hospital spokesperson — while the others had been treated and released. Brauchler asked the community to remember that the shooting would traumatize far more than the students and their families who would technically be classified as victims in the case. The school comprises a student body of approximately 1,800 students. SEE BRAUCHLER, P22

Acts of heroism, kindness supply hope amid grief
or many years, we watched from our office windows as the students at STEM High School Highlands Ranch left school for the day or headed over to the Starbucks across the street. The school is in the business complex right behind our former office on Highlands Ranch Parkway. Our Highlands Ranch reporter often walked down the street to interview students and teachers about the latest innovative program on which they were working. One of those stories included Kendrick Castillo, the 18-yearold killed as he bravely and selflessly rushed the shooter to help protect his classmates. His face beamed with joy
OUR VIEW in a photograph that showed him at his internship, working toward his dream of becoming an engineer. So, as our team of journalists rushed to the scene of the May 7 shooting, the feeling was surreal. We were as stunned and as heartbroken as our community. This was the third school shooting in the metro area in 20 years, after Columbine in 1999 and Arapahoe in 2013. The three schools are within a 10-mile span of each other, their tragic events seeming to encapsulate reverberating and undulating waves of sorrow that carry the same despairing question,
this time asked by a STEM parent: “How in the world could this happen?” The cycle seemingly repeats itself: The coming days and weeks will disclose more details and explanations. There will be renewed focus on the importance of mental health, gun control and school culture. There will be more talk about the need to provide more resources, more support, to make change that makes a definitive difference. All of that is important. But today, this week, we grieve. We grieve for the light and the gift lost in Kendrick Castillo. For the eight other students injured. For the hundreds of students, teachers, ad-
ministrators and parents whose lives — and outlook on life — are forever altered. We grieve for the two teenagers — and their families — who are suspected in the shooting. We grieve for our community and, really, our world, battered by violence that comes in so many different ways, without warning or respect for boundary. Still, evidence of humanity’s heart reminds us not all is lost, and that in difficult times, hope remains. SEE OUR VIEW, P23

good friend was once defined as someone you could call at 2 a. m. and tell, “Bring a shovel, and don’t ask questions.” Plutarch said, “I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and nods when I nod; my shadow does that QUIET much better.” DESPERATION There are books filled with quotes about friendship, and books filled with stories about friendship. Arnold H. Glasow (don’t know him) said, “A true friend never gets in your way unless you are Craig Marshall going down.” I think my require- Smith ments in a friendship have changed over time, and I have decided I need very few good friends. A good friend and a friend can be distinguished by a shovel. I have plenty of good friends. I have four. However, two of them are out of state, and one of them doesn’t know what a shovel is. Harry doesn’t know what a shovel
is, true, but he also doesn’t know who the 45th president of the United States is, and that is a plus sometimes. Further, he knows nothing about crime, deceit, or cruelty. He is simply a happy entity, and fully enjoys my company. The perfect antidote to the brutalities of existence. I have friends I could call on, but probably won’t, in a time of lesser need than a nighttime mission, but whom I greatly appreciate. Would this then mean I have tiers of friendship? Maybe you do too. Jennifer (one of the four, certainly) and I watched the ending, just the very ending, of “Thelma and Louise.” It’s a story about good friends who wind up in a wingless flight in a Thunderbird. They were willing to die together after a crime spree that was initiated in a parking lot when Louise (Susan Sarandon) shoots and kills a man who assaulted Thelma (Geena Davis). They amscray, thinking no one will believe them. The movie pivots on that point.

James Ray Morrison
October 22, 1934 – May 7, 2019 James Ray Morrison, of Franktown, Colorado died peacefully Tuesday afternoon, May 7, 2019 in Swedish Hospital surrounded by family. Known as Jim, Dad, BUG (Big Ugly Grandpa) and Peepaw to those close to him, Jim Morrison was no ordinary man. Trying to distill his life into a few dates and facts on a page is like trying to describe the ocean while referring to a cup of salt water – It completely misses the point. But let’s start with the basics for those who just want a synopsis. Jim was born in the usual manner in Denver, Colorado on October 22, 1934 to Florence Alice Winn and Homer Berry Morrison. He was the youngest of 5 children (Dorothy, Dick, Barry, Barbara). Jim was devoted to his mother throughout her life. He grew up in north Denver and attended West High School. Jim’s primary career was in the union plumbing trade although he did a 2-year stint in the army, taught apprenticeship school, served on the State Plumbing Board and was an estimator, foreman, building inspector and business owner over the course of his work history. Jim was married to Fran Morrison, raised four
children and spent most of his adult life in the home he built in Franktown, Colorado. Jim is survived by his wife Fran Morrison and four children, James (Dodi) Morrison of Centennial, CO, Lisa (Rick) Randall of Greenfield, IN, David Morrison of Aurora, CO and Laura (Ashley) Fryer of Carnation, WA. Jim also leaves behind four grandchildren (Annie, Julia, Dustin and Bill), two great-grandchildren (Micah and Lenore), and his sisters Dorothy Cady and Barbara Powell as well as many nieces and nephews. To truly know the man, though, you have to dig a little deeper into his story. His life was focused on family, work and cars. He lived out his belief that “any job worth doing is worth doing well” and never allowed others to define his limits. He recognized that others “put their pants on one leg at a time” just like he did. Simply put, Jim lived the American Dream: he started with very little but through hard work and a belief in himself, he was able to achieve remarkable things and retire comfortably in his old age. Jim had a lifetime fascination with cars
from his early years where he fixed-up and raced stock and sport cars for fun through his retirement years when he was finally able to restore a 39 Ford pick-up, a 68 mustang and a 39 Ford standard coupe. He had a lifetime of stories to share about makes, models and the “ones that got away”. Jim met the love of his life, Fran, on a blind date and celebrated over 58 years of marriage with her. He was fiercely proud of her spunk and was unswervingly loyal to her until he passed. Jim was a terrific dad. Part time medic, King of the school science project, teacher, drill Sargent, consummate storyteller, and toy assembler, he taught his children to work hard, do a job right the first time and stick up for each other. Although he worked a full-time job, taught apprenticeship classes in the evenings and worked to finish the house, he also carved out time to play board games and take his family fishing, hiking, camping and snowmobiling. Helping others was as natural as breathing for Jim. He regularly stopped to help stranded motorists on the side of the road
or dropped by a neighbor’s home to help them with a plumbing problem or automotive repair. Jim was generous with his time, his heart, and his know-how. He will be missed by all who knew him.

He continued on to Texas Western College (now University of Texas at El Paso) where he got his pre-medical degree in 1958 and then earned his Medical Degree in 1962 at University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. George was drafted into the Navy where he served as a physician on the USS Mahan in the Western Pacific, then began his residency training at Parkland Memorial Hospital in 1965. George went on to complete his fellowship training in cardiac radiology at the University of Florida College of Medicine in 1970. George discovered his passion for teaching early on and began his 40+ year career in academia in 1971 as an assistant professor of radiology at UT Southwestern Medical Center
later becoming a Professor of Radiology serving from 1977 to 2011. George served as director of the diagnostic-radiology residency program at UT Southwestern for 24 years as well as the president of the medical staff at Parkland from 1994 to 1996. George was also the inaugural holder of the M.R & E. Hudson Foundation Professorship in Radiology, in Honor of Edward E. Christiansen, M.D. George also received the inaugural ACGME Parker J. Palmer “Courage to Teach” award in 2001 which recognized outstanding program directors in Diagnostic Radiology. Notably, George was a founder of the Association of Program Directors in Radiology where he served as the chair of the organizations Review Committee. George’s favorite role was that of program
director where he could work with young residents and help them find their calling. George was an avid bird hunter for 60+ years and duck hunting was his passion. He loved getting up early and putting out a spread of decoys, sitting in a duck blind for hours on end waiting for a flock of ducks to come by then working them in with his duck call. Some of his favorite hunts were sitting in the blind with family and friends even when they did not see a single duck. George coached baseball for many years in the Irving Boy Baseball Association bringing his love for teaching to the Trinity River Bottoms where he coached his sons Mark

WALKOUT FROM PAGE 12
“It was all political,” a student said, as others talked among themselves and decried the political tone of the event. One speaker inside — Laura Reeves, with the organization Moms Demand Action — had mentioned the National Rifle Association, or NRA, as a reason she said national gun policy wasn’t adequate. “Don’t use Kendrick’s name for political reasons!” another student outside shouted, as chants of “Mental health!” and “(expletive) the media!” took hold. Said another student: “It’s not about the guns!” A chant then began to direct the group back inside, where many more gathered again around the lectern and students — including from STEM — began to speak. One person led the crowd in the gym to hold hands and bow heads in prayer that people could “fight not against each other, but for each other.” That served as a turning point, when a long succession of students took turns on the microphone amid a calmer crowd. One student said she met Castillo as a young child and went to school with him, adding he was “the kindest, gentlest soul you’d ever meet.” Another said he was angry that people “came to talk about gun control.” Some said they were friends with Castillo and attended school with him. One student
Hundreds of local students and parents light up their phones at a May 8 vigil at Highlands Ranch High School for STEM School shooting victims and survivors. called the vigil a “political stunt.” He added, “We walked out. We were not kicked out.” The group held a moment of silence for STEM School and Castillo. A news release announcing the vigil said speakers would include local elected officials, students with activist groups and “students, parents and teachers from STEM,”
among others. Some local students did speak, but STEM students in the crowd felt unheard. Organizers said they tried to reach members of the STEM community through personal connections but couldn’t connect with anyone willing to speak. For Highlands Ranch High teacher Emily Muellenberg, one of the event organizers, focusing on gun violence
prevention efforts can be a way of “community-based solutions seeking,” but she said she understands that “any feeling that a political message was being imparted felt upsetting and not appropriately sensitive.” “For those who spoke up, I am in awe of your strength, and I am proud of you for asking for what you needed in that moment. I am sorry we couldn’t do better, but your resilience and your passion will help fuel your healing,” Muellenberg said in the days after the vigil. “Your honoring of Kendrick Castillo was powerful, and we thank you for that. We sincerely hope that by the end, there was some chance to release and begin to heal for many of you.” Despite the tension toward the media expressed by some in the group that had walked outside, some students spoke to reporters at the end of the event. Logan Griffith, a STEM senior, said he was in the English classroom with 20 to 30 others when the shooting occurred in that room at his school May 7. “I think I speak for STEM when I say we do thank Highlands Ranch High School for hosting this,” Griffith said as the crowd dispersed. “However, this was for Kendrick Castillo. Not for our senator, not for anyone else.”’ He hopes people can honor Castillo and that the events at the vigil serve “as a statement to keep the politics where they belong — keep them in Congress.”

Restaurant provided a safe haven for fleeing school kids BY JESSICA GIBBS JGIBBS@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
Lucas DeLeon works as a manager for Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery, which sits at Lucent Boulevard and Plaza Drive in Highlands Ranch. As he drove to work May 7, he turned off Broadway and headed west on Plaza Drive, just in time to see two sheriff ’s office vehicles tear down the street. He neared the restaurant while more sirens and lights flooded the area. With a Wells Fargo nearby, he thought it might be a bank robbery. Then he saw a group of children, maybe six or seven of them, sprinting down Plaza Drive — holding hands. They didn’t seem to look at where they were going. At one point they skipped in front of a turning vehicle, narrowly avoiding a collision. DeLeon parked in Rock Bottom’s parking lot and watched the children, trying to figure out what they were doing. Inside Rock Bottom, bartender Julie Finkelstein and other restaurant employees had just watched a steady stream of other students walk through the front door and straight toward a private room near the back of the building, almost as if they knew where they were going. The general manager went to speak with the group, which eventually grew to between 30 and 40 children. That’s when they learned an active shooter had attacked the STEM School almost one mile away, sending students fleeing on foot. DeLeon believes the children he saw on Plaza were the last of the STEM students who self-evacuated to the restaurant. Neither DeLeon nor Finkelstein could say why the kids came to their restaurant. All DeLeon knew was: “A teacher told them to run.” Springing to action When Finkelstein heard why the students were there, her heart sank. She’d been through this before as a former teacher who taught at J.P. Taravella High School in Florida, the sister school to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. She was teaching at Taravella when the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas left 17 people dead. Finkelstein’s first reaction May 7 was to calm the children and assure them they were safe. In the room, she found students huddled in a corner, lining the walls and crouched on the floor, as if they were still in lockdown. After running nearly a mile, they still didn’t feel safe, she said. DeLeon, another of several Rock Bottom employees with a teaching background, said they all knew exactly what to do thanks to their training as educators. He’d been through two lockdowns when teaching at a prep school in Colorado Springs. The kitchen started making nachos. They passed out candy and juice boxes. Staff locked every door and DeLeon stood post at the front entrance for the entire time the children stayed in their care.
“To make sure that no one was coming, no one was coming out,” he said. “Because at that point we had just started getting details that there might still be someone on the loose.” Children called their parents and over the next hour some adults arrived to pick them up. Other parents came to see if their children were at Rock Bottom, and if not, ran from business to business to see if they were somewhere nearby. More than an hour passed until an armored vehicle arrived at the restaurant, and the remaining children were released into police custody. The effect of drills, lockdowns and school shootings on children are long-term, DeLeon said. Finkelstein believes her son, a student at Taravella who had many friends at Marjory Stoneman Douglas during the shooting, likely suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.

“Frightening is not the word,” she said when trying to describe school shootings. “Paralyzing. Life-altering.” Seeing another school shooting unfold so nearby is “shattering,” DeLeon said. “You just never know if it’s your

Polis urges wildfire vigilance amid milder forecast Governor cautions against ‘false sense of security’ BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
After an onslaught of raging wildfires in Colorado in 2018, this year’s fire season looks to be less severe, but state officials are urging the public not to let its guard down. “I don’t want it to lure people into a false sense of security,” said Gov. Jared Polis, speaking May 7 at the state’s 2019 wildfire outlook briefing. The event at Centennial Airport in unincorporated Arapahoe County, just south of Centennial, featured input from public safety officials who noted the wildfire season this year will likely be average to below average. “Today, we’re looking at 130 to 140 percent of average snowpack,” said Mike Morgan, director of the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control. “It appears (this year) will have aboveaverage moisture and below-average
temperature.” Rising population and climate change have caused wildfires and other natural disasters to become more costly, Polis said. “Fires don’t know jurisdictional boundaries,” Polis said, noting that fires can start on federal land but spread to county or private areas. Officials emphasized the coordination between federal, state and local agencies to respond to blazes. Out of the 20 largest wildfires in Colorado’s history, five occurred in 2018, a fact sheet from the fire prevention division said. Thirteen happened since 2010, and all 20 occurred since 2000, according to the division. The 2019 outlook is “considerably better” than at this point in 2018, the division said. Although a repeat of last year’s severity is unlikely, an average year sees more than 6,000 fires that burn more than 100,000 acres on state and private land, with large fires still occurring, according to the division. In the Denver metro area, mountain communities in west Jefferson County bear risk because fires that start in vegetation can reach homes, Morgan said

after his address. “We’ve been asked if what happened in California can happen in Colorado,” Morgan said, referring to that state’s recent, especially destructive fire season. “The answer is yes.” Stan Hilkey, executive director of
the state Department of Public Safety, joined other officials in a reminder that homeowners should take precaution. “While we all do our part as emergency responders,” Hilkey said, “individuals need to take proactive steps in preventing wildfires as well.”
Term-limit changes to be decided by voters BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
The Parker Town Council at its May 7 meeting agreed to place a question on this fall’s ballot asking whether to extend the term limits of elected officials to four terms, effective immediately following the Nov. 5 election. The original term limit was adopted from the Colorado Constitution Article XVIII, which has a standard limit of two four-year terms. If passed, the ordinance would institute a lifetime cap for any councilmember or mayor who serves a total of 16 years as either. Councilmember John Diak pointed to cities like Boulder, Denver and Aurora
that have a similar term limit ordinance and the effectiveness in which policy reform can get done with extended, more defined terms. “They have continuity. They have institutional knowledge that can serve their own municipalities better if you have that continuity,” said Diak. “Looking at what we’re doing from a trans standpoint it seems that we have momentum. I can only imagine, as we continue to grow, what the other members here…can do if they had the time and desire to serve their town as some of us have or would desire to do for the betterment of the town.” Mayor Mike Waid and Councilmember Debbie Lewis, who have served nonconsecutive terms, would both reach
their 16-year limit after their current terms are finished. The ordinance was originally slated for approval at the April 15 meeting, along with seven other clerical changes to the Parker Municipal Code to be put to a vote, which passed. After residents voiced concern over the vagueness of the language, the term-limit item was tabled for a third reading until revisions could be made. Residents were concerned about the ordinance’s lack of clarification on whether the proposed term limits applied to the mayor and council separately. The concern was that the proposed language could have allowed for three four-year terms to be served on council followed by three additional terms if
the councilmember was elected mayor, or vice versa. Residents also were concerned about the lack of an effectiveness date. Some suggested the ordinance be effective after the current members finish their terms to disable grandstanding or conflict of interest. “I think the way it was written before, it allowed somebody to essentially become a lifer and serve three terms, then three terms, then three terms to perpetuity or death,” said councilmember Josh Rivero. “I think this better addresses the want or desire of the people to have some term limits but still allows us to maintain historic knowledge and activity on very important regional boards and commissions.”
Former Merryhill worker gets probation for child abuse BY NICK PUCKETT NPUCKETT@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
A former Merryhill School worker in Parker was sentenced to 18 months of probation for misdemeanor child abuse May 13. Brenda Woodard, 47, pleaded guilty to negligent child abuse April 30 for using a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to remove permanent marker from two children’s faces. Both children were 3 years old. The parents of one of the children, Caitlin and Josh Sims, spoke during the sentencing. Caitlin Sims said Woodard “attacked” her child and “ruthlessly” scrubbed his face. The children suffered chemical burns and trauma, the
Sims said. The incident was recorded by a surveillance camera. “You lost control and behaved in a punitive and oppressive manor,” Caitlin Sims said. “I watched in horror, in pain and shock with what happened to them by a person they trusted.” Woodard was cited in a December letter from the Colorado Office of Early Childhood in the department’s review of the school that includes a list of violations committed by the school during a 10-month probationary period from Jan. 4, 2018 to Oct. 29. The two children suffered chemical burns after Woodard attempted to clean marker off each of their faces using a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser sponge, which contains
formaldehyde. The product’s website, MrClean.com, labels it as an all-purpose household cleaner. On Dec. 17, the Colorado Department of Human Services sent a letter to Merryhill President Debra Pritchard informing her the school’s license renewal request had been denied following several violations during the school’s 10-month probation period in 2018. The letter listed the Magic Eraser incident as a founded concern of Stage 1 child abuse. Woodard was sentenced by Judge Susanna Meissner-Cutler, a Douglas County Court judge. In addition to the probation, Woodard must pay a $200 fine, which can be reduced to $100
if Woodard completes her required sentence, and was issued a mandatory protection order restricting Woodard from ever being a care worker for children again. “I can’t imagine what a 3-year-old would do to cause such a reaction to you that you would place these children in harm’s way and do so in a truly abusive manor,” Meissner-Cutler said. “The result is going to be you’re never going to work with these children again.” The parents of the affected victims, the Simses and Joel and Stacey Dant, are pursuing a civil lawsuit against Woodard, which is ongoing. The civil suit was filed in July 2018.

Capitol report: Recapping major bills in 2019 Sex ed, affordable housing, family leave saw developments BY ELLIS ARNOLD EARNOLD@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
With power in both houses of the Legislature and the governor’s office, Democrats this year led lawmakers into some sweeping changes, as well as hard-fought battles that left the party short of some goals. A major overhaul of Colorado’s oil and gas rules turned the state’s focus away from encouraging production and made public safety and the environment a top priority, handing local governments new authority to regulate drilling. And the much-mentioned “red flag” bill — which allows firearms to be temporarily taken away from people deemed a significant threat to themselves or others — passed after an even more partisan debate than last year’s version faced. And it still faces a conservative-backed court challenge. A laundry list of other notable bills came up during the 2019 legislative session, the four-month part of the year when state lawmakers pass bills. It ended May 3. Sex ed curriculum updated After much public opposition, Democrats’ effort to strengthen sex education requirements succeeded. The law does not require schools to teach sex education, but if they do, schools must address topics including birth control and pregnancy, sexually transmitted disease prevention, consent, and abstinence, according to state House Speaker KC Becker, D-Boulder. Already-existing law had outlined “comprehensive” sex education standards, but the new law makes some updates on consent and healthy relationships, House Democrats have said. The 2019 proposal, House Bill 191032, spurred panic about teaching
of the sex acts or practices of LGBT individuals, but the law’s text does not require that. It does mandate that sex ed include information that is “meaningful to the experiences and needs” of LGBT or intersex people, and it adds that sex ed cannot exclude “the health needs” of those groups. For the most part, that’s not new, aside from adding those who are intersex. The law also bars shamebased language or gender stereotypes. In 2013, the Legislature passed the “comprehensive” standards in connection with a grant program to support teaching sex education, but it didn’t fund the grant. The new law gives at least $1 million annually to the program, and rural schools and public schools that currently don’t offer comprehensive sex education would be prioritized for the funding. Late in the session, lawmakers amended the bill to maintain eligibility for charter schools for waivers that can exempt them from the comprehensive standards. State Senate Minority Leader Chris Holbert, R-Parker, said changes to the bill amounted to “a step in the right direction.” “We heard from thousands of Coloradans that were concerned about this piece of legislation,” Holbert said in a news release. “The majority of Republican senators remain opposed to the bill and stand with a parent’s right to teach and raise their children as they see fit.” Parents can still opt their kids out of sex ed classes. Vaccine bill falls Colorado lawmakers abandoned
legislation that would have made it harder to opt children out of vaccinations as time was running out in the legislative session with one day to go. Colorado allows parents to opt children out of vaccinations for medical reasons with a doctor’s note. Those who object for religious or personal reasons can also submit a statement to be exempted. House Bill 19-1312 would have limited the allowed reasons for a medical exemption. It would have also required those seeking religious or personal exemptions to initially apply in person at a local health department or the state health department. “Republicans were not willing to let the vaccine bill come to a vote without hours and hours of debate, which would have prevented us from delivering on priority bills,” including health care and education, said state Senate Majority Leader Stephen Fenberg, D-Boulder, according to the Associated Press. Drivers’ cellphone use slips by Senate Bill 19-012 would have made use of cellphones while driving — except with a hands-free device — illegal for everyone. Currently, state law bars anyone under 18 from using cellphones while driving. It passed the Senate but didn’t make it to a full vote in the House, instead postponed indefinitely in the House Judiciary Committee. Family leave yet to arrive The Democrats’ push to allow workers up to 12 weeks of paid family leave — to care for a sick family member, tend to a personal medical issue or take care of a new child — eventually lost steam, with lawmakers passing a study on the program instead. The program would have required the state to collect a premium on each person’s paycheck, with employees and employers sharing the cost. Someone earning between $12,001 and $20,000 a year would pay from $38 to $64 a year into the fund, and employees earning $60,001 to $80,000 would pay from $192 to $256, the Associated Press reported. Many in the
business community opposed the program. In its final form, Senate Bill 19-188 created a plan that will result in an independent analysis to be completed by December that will ensure a potential program would be “efficient” and “fiscally responsible” if passed, a news release by House Democrats said. Death penalty survives Democrats also fell short in a bid to end the death penalty, a debate that was personal for state Sen. Rhonda Fields, an Aurora Democrat whose son was murdered in 2005. Robert Ray and Sir Mario Owens were sentenced to die for the killings. Lawmakers have tried before to repeal Colorado’s death penalty, which has been applied just one time in the past 51 years. Senate Bill 19-182 would have taken effect for offenses charged on or after July 1, 2019. Democrats have a 19-16 majority in the Senate, but at least one, Fields, opposed the bill. At least four other party members hadn’t publicly committed to the repeal.
Putting money down Affordable housing gets a boost with the passage of two bills to increase the amount of money the state spends to drive the construction of less expensive dwellings. House Bill 19-1228 passed in the state Senate to increase the annual amount the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority can spend on tax credits each year, according to a news release by Senate Democrats. The amount, currently up to $5 million per year, will increase to up to $10 million from 2020 to 2024, giving incentive to developers to build more affordable housing in the state, the release said. House Bill 19-1322 will transfer up to $30 million over the next three years from the state’s Unclaimed Property Trust Fund to the Housing Development Grant Fund, another news release said, to improve funding for affordable housing options in Colorado. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
County real estate valuations see steady increases STAFF REPORT
Property owners should have received their notices of valuation, which reflect residential and commercial property values as of June 30, 2018, according to a news release from Douglas County. “Reflecting the excellent quality of life in Douglas County, real estate values have continued to experience steady increases for all property classifications, along with near recordsetting new construction,” Douglas County Assessor Lisa Frizell said in the release. Frizell reports that the median single-family detached home proper-
ty value is now $492,000, an increase of 14.5% from the 2017-2018 level of value, the release said. In 2017 and 2018, Douglas County saw the completion of more than 6,400 new residential properties, which has helped to keep Douglas County value increases significantly below that of other metro area counties. “We have experienced a smaller increase in property values than in any other Denver metro county, in part due to the growth in Douglas County’s housing supply from new construction,” Frizell said in the release. “As with the 2017 reappraisal, our condominium and townhome
housing saw the largest appreciation in value. These homes are in high demand in Douglas County and saw median increases of 16 percent.”

One idea that garnered a lot of discussion was around this statement, “Some people are convinced that in order to succeed, they feel like they have to manipulate the outcome of every call, meeting, or interaction. They are confusing success with manipulation.” By manipulating others and being disingenuous we find ourselves trapped in a web of lies, fabrications, and an endless cycle of weak defenses and justifications.

problem is they actually believe they are fooling the rest of us, when in fact, most times we can see right through the disguise, pretense and manipulation. Lack of authenticity is a successkiller for sure. It damages brands, it tarnishes reputations, and it damages relationships, sometimes beyond repair. The amount of work that has to be done in order to undo the hurts and collateral damage, and re-establish credibility, is so much harder and takes so much more time than just simply being genuine and authentic right from the start. Being transparent and vulnerable takes courage, but as we become proficient at authenticity and transparency, our courage and confidence grow in parallel. And as this happens, we quickly recognize just how powerful these character traits are to the pursuit and achievement of our personal and professional success.
Integrity comes with authenticity. And integrity can be defined as living in such a way that we never have to look over our shoulder. It can also be defined as doing the right thing when no one else is looking. Being genuine, living, loving, and working with character and integrity sets us up to pursue our success from a position of authenticity. With authenticity comes trust, with trust comes deeper relationships, and with deeper relationships comes success. “You will make a horrible anyone else, but you will make the best you that ever lived.” Zig Ziglar If this is true, then why do we try and keep up with the Joneses? Why do we try and impersonate other people? Why do we spin stories and manipulate situations that could hurt others? It’s because we lack authenticity. Maybe we believe others won’t like who we really are. If that’s the case, maybe we have to

Sawyer Benson, Rock Canyon High School Benson, who was born with a rare disease that causes a smaller rib cage and lungs, has to carry a backpack with an oxygen tank inside.

find different friends, people who accept us for exactly who we are. Or, if after a good hard look in the mirror, we can clearly see areas in our life that need to be changed. And then we take the time to become who it is we truly want to be. It is never too late to become authentic, genuine, transparent, and yes, even vulnerable. These are not successkillers; these traits are the building blocks of success. So how about you? Are you the real deal, the authentic and genuine article? Or is time to work on your own authenticity? I would love to hear your story at gotonorton@ gmail.com and when we can be the best “us” that ever lived, it really will be a better than good week.

Class of 2019
How can you make a difference in the world? Colorado Community Media asked that question of soon-to-be graduates from across the south metro area. Here’s what some of them had to say: The arts are one of the areas that can have the most impact on people. The opportunity to tell someone else’s stories or share different viewpoints about things — creatively — can impact the way people see things. — Bri Angle, Lutheran
I hope to pursue my passion of becoming a physician in the future. Becoming a doctor would allow me to change patients’ lives for the better and make a personal, but meaningful, impact on those around me through healing. — Meghna Bagchi, Rock Canyon
I make a difference in the world every day. I never really know what impact my actions will have on other people nor to what degree, but I do my best to live a life where I help other people, even if that just means a smile in the hallway or holding open a door. — Sarah Gates, Ponderosa
I am hoping to make a difference in the world by being someone who listens. I am planning to major in human biology to become a pediatrician. One thing I’ve learned over the years is that taking the time to listen to others, especially children who can’t always voice their opinions or feelings, could impact one for a lifetime. I hope to use my platform to first listen to kids, then also to motivate and inspire them to be the very best they can be and not be afraid to pursue their God-given gifts and talents. — Francesca Belibi, Regis Jesuit
I think the biggest way someone can make a difference in the world is simply by being the best person they can be. With this comes kindness, selflessness and a mind geared toward helping every person to be the best person they can be. If we always live with kindness in our heart, I think that is the way that we can help change the world every day. If we put ourselves aside and look to the world, we can truly make a difference. — Emmy Hawkins, Arapahoe
I believe I can make a difference because of how strongly I support community service. I would like to encourage more people to get involved and giving back to their community. It may be required in high school, in order to graduate, but after that, it is a choice. I hope that more people will decide to help and give back, because it is so vital to create a stronger community. — Taylor Littlefield, Douglas County I can make a difference in the world by speaking out for change. I am eager to learn various perspectives and give a voice to those who are often overlooked. Through this, I hope to connect people, creating a better understanding among one another and a more united front for change. — Emma Slenkovich, Littleton
It’s a hard question to answer how I can change the world since I’m still so young, but my motto is just to leave everything better than I found it. — Marcus Miller, Cherry Creek
The little things. You don’t have to save the entire world to make a difference. If you can show even one person the love in the world that there is to offer, you have still made a difference. — Jaden Tactaquin, Castle View
I think I’ll be able to change the world through my willingness to work with people and forge relationships. I don’t think I’m even close to the smartest person in the world, and I think that mindset isn’t conducive to growth, so I always give everybody 100% and try to make connections with as many people I can. With these connections and my skills as a speaker, I believe I will be able to bring people together to make a difference. — Abhi Bhandari, Mountain Vista
The way I can make a difference in the world is by being a firstrate me and not a second-rate someone else. Like God makes each snowflake uniquely different and each fall’s leaves, he has made me unique in my own special way to help and care for others in my own way by treating each person with respect and love. — Raymond Jackson Jr., Grandview
I can make a difference by using my skills and personality traits to advocate for causes I’m passionate about, such as continuing my fundraising efforts for clean water. — Brock Mullen, Chaparral
Something that I learned at Smoky that can apply to how I can make a difference in the world is just how far kindness can go. Simply being a positive and kind person can go a long way and brighten a person’s day. — Cameron Kennedy, Smoky Hill
The most powerful change that anyone can make is in the lives of others. I can make a difference by empowering those around me and helping others maximize their potential. — Chuba Ozor, Eaglecrest
The way that I am going to make a difference in the world is by showing young people that it is possible to achieve your dreams. Everyone has a dream but it depends on if that person is going to catch it or not. — Sareina Thomas, Colorado’s Finest High School of Choice
I want to make a difference in the world using my education. I want to better my family and be a role model for my younger sister and cousins. I want them to know that anyone can go to college and pursue any career they choose. Since I’m the first one in my family to attend college I believe I have what it takes to change the world through them. — Triston Hercules Flamenco, Englewood Start small, to make a difference in the world you need to take it step by step. Spread your words of change, be someone people look up to and want to be like you. Make them realize they can do big things too; they just need to take those steps to start their journey. — Brandon Knight, Options
It’s important to use my own actions as a demonstration of how others can create change rather than complaining about the world’s problems. I strive to set myself apart from the rest of the world by getting involved and ultimately, connecting with people. Whether it be within my school, job, or on a larger scale, I can influence others by believing in something greater than myself. I owe all that I accomplish to God and it is my biggest desire to serve Him. — Addison Scherler, Valor Christian
I hope to one day make a difference with adoptable dogs and cats. Animals are a huge passion of mine that I would like to bring more attention to and change the ways of adopting pets. — Emily Vital, Heritage
I believe there are many ways. As big as having professional skills to improve the technology in major areas, to as small as smiling to all the people I met in daily life, offering help when they need it, bring positive influence to the community, and picking up all the trash in sight. — Yibo Yang, Legend

enforcement who responded to the shooting, along with STEM teachers and the Castillo family. At Northridge Recreation Center, community members funneled through a conference room, placing comfort food and necessities into buckets. Therapy dogs occupied the hallway. The event had a ripple effect. “This is as much healing for this staff as it is for them,” said Jamie Noebel, community relations manager for the Highlands Ranch Community Association. During the shooting, Northridge was designated as a reunification center for parents and students of the K-12 school.
Resources at school Schools are among the safest places to be, Davidon stresses. Douglas County School District’s network of mental health resources includes Prevention and School Culture and Mental Health Intervention departments. The departments — made up of counselors, mental health professionals and teachers — spearhead seminars on life skills and promote wellness campaigns in schools, such as Sources of Strength. The suicide prevention program takes an upstream approach by helping students focus on what is working in their lives.
HOW TO TALK TO YOUR CHILDREN The National Association of School Psychologists has advice for parents wanting information on how to talk to their children in the aftermath of tragedies like the one at STEM School Highlands Ranch on May 7. “High-profile acts of violence, particularly in schools, can confuse and frighten children who may feel in danger or worry that their friends or loved-ones are at risk,” the organization says on its website. “They will look to adults for information and guidance on how to react. Parents and school personnel can help children feel safe by establishing a sense of normalcy and security and talking with them about their fears.” The following is a brief summary of some of the organization’s tips for parents. More can be found at https://bit.ly/2vLD3XG • Reassure children that they are safe. • Make time to talk. • Keep your explanations developmentally appropriate. • Review safety procedures. • Observe children’s emotional state. • Limit television viewing of the traumatic events. • Maintain a normal routine. Each school has a crisis team that responds to building-level situations. Following the STEM tragedy, DCSD activated its district-level crisis team. Mental health professionals and administrators, in conjunction with the district’s community relations department and local law enforcement, work together to provide assistance to communities across the county.

In January, Eucker filed a lawsuit against “Jane Doe” for what she called “defamatory statements” against the school. The lawsuit was filed in district court on Jan. 17, according to a copy obtained by Colorado Community Media. Eucker and STEM are listed as the plaintiffs. In response to the district’s initial email, Eucker and Mark Alpert, the president of STEM’s board of directors, sent a letter to the school’s parents on Feb. 1 outlining the allegations. In the emailed statement on May 9, the school provided background information on the allegations. “Some of the allegations were the type many schools receive – student drug-use, the pressure to perform well, and students with mental health concerns. Other allegations were more unusual – staff members or board members embezzling money and laundering it in China and Mexico, forcing students to clean up human feces with their bare hands, and teachers instructing students how to build bombs in class. “STEM’s administration team immediately opened an investigation to determine whether there was any substance to the allegations. As part of this investigation, and in the spirit of full disclosure, STEM reached out to its 2,800 parents to inform them of the complaint in the hopes that any student or family member with

Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said at least 600 would “definitely” be affected because of their proximity to the shooting on school grounds when it began. The next morning, more families were feeling the aftermath of the tragedy, Brauchler said. “Moms and dads, looking at each other, making decisions about whether or not to send their kids to
knowledge of the allegations would confidentially share that information. STEM did not receive responses from any parents or students with information about these allegations. While STEM took the allegations seriously, our investigation revealed no evidence to support any of the allegations raised in the anonymous complaint.” DCSD Superintendent Thomas Tucker would not comment on the matter when reached by phone May 9, directing inquiries to the district’s communications staff, which responded with contact information for STEM’s public relations firm. School board President David Ray also referred questions to the district’s communications department. STEM recently had its charter renewed for three years rather than the optimal five years. The charter renewal came with the following conditions: that the school adopt and publish a parent complaint and communication policy, show the school’s graduation standards meet the state’s requirements and provide a description of the school’s strategic plan to expand. In STEM’s May 9 statement, Eucker said the school’s highest priority is the safety and wellbeing of students and staff. “We are proud of the welcoming, inclusive community at STEM School Highlands Ranch, and we strive to meet each of our students’ unique needs,” Eucker said. “Like any school with more than 1,800 students, we receive complaints, all of which we take seriously and investigate promptly.”
school in one of the greatest school districts in the country because they don’t feel safe,” Brauchler said. Gov. Jared Polis joined Brauchler, Spurlock and other leaders at a 6 a.m. news conference on May 8 to provide updates on the shooting. Polis called the state resilient but frustrated with the number of shootings that have occurred throughout Colorado’s history. “Yes, we come together in grief,” Polis said. “We also come together to heal. And we come together to figure out what we can do better as a state and society.”

OUR VIEW FROM PAGE 14
Last week, there were the first responders who rushed from all over the metro area. Some 79 vehicles, 148 fire and medical personnel, and three medical helicopters converged in the shooting’s immediate aftermath with one thought in mind — to help our young people. There were residents, local stores and churches that immediately gave what was needed to help. There was the restaurant that sheltered children and kept them safe. The students who fought for their right to mourn without politics.
And there was Kendrick Castillo who, with two other students who survived, fought the suspected shooter. Faced with a life-or-death decision, they chose life for those around them before themselves. John Castillo, Kendrick’s father, says now is not the time to issue blame and recriminations. Solutions are simpler, he says: “We have to be better people. If you are going to have kids in this world, you need to be all in.” Mike Shallenberger, Kendrick’s engineering teacher, believes we could change much in this world by putting down our phones and being present in the moment. “We just need,” he says, “to love each other.” Like Kendrick Castillo did.

It’s fulfilling as entertainment. In a real-life instance, I would hope the women would address the situation, and not wind up where they did. One of my good friends did what good friends do: He intervened. It’s a potent thing to do with anyone, especially with a curmudgeon. Another stood beside me when others had doubts about my testimony. Trust in a friendship is preeminent. “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” (“Louis,” not “Louie,” is correct.) That’s one of the most famous final lines in film history. Can you name the film?
Mark Twain said, “Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: This is the ideal life.” Can a good book be a friend? Yes. How about a good movie? Yes. I watch 10 minutes of an old friend before I fall asleep, just in case I die before I wake. For one, “My Little Chickadee,” starring W. C. Fields and Mae West, who were not friends. Some of Fields’ selfwritten lines are brilliant. He referred to West as “yon damsel with the hothouse cognomen.” However, I never close the day with “Casablanca,” the final-line film. It’s a good one, but it manipulates my emotions. A good friend won’t do that. Trust me. Craig Marshall Smith can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Bible Speaks – Israel
Last Tuesday, May 14, was the 71st anniversary of the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948. Today’s Israel is the tangible proof of God’s promise that the nation of Israel will always exist (Jer 31:35-37). He has returned them to their ancient land, kept them through several wars & is now providing for their success politically, economically & culturally. Many civilizations have tried to destroy the Jewish people over the centuries. Among them are the Assyrians, Babylonians, Romans, Crusaders, Nazis & the Soviet Union. None exist today yet Israel does. All have failed, as will the current attempts by Israel’s Arab neighbors. In Isaiah 43:19 God says “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” Yes Lord we do, in Israel your people, your nation. email@example.com

Douglas County School District Board President David Ray, Superintendent Thomas Tucker, Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock and Undersheriff Holly Nicholson-Kluth sat at tables in front of the board listening to public comment. Spurlock said his department does not have enough resources to provide the number of school resource officers needed in each district school. The district has 68,000 students — roughly the population of the county seat, Castle Rock — spread across 91 schools. The enrollment makes the district the third largest in Colorado. Every traditional high school has a school resource officer or SRO, Spurlock said, but not as many as the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO) recommends there be per student — a
ratio of one SRO for every 1,000 students. NASRO recommends considering such factors as campus size, school climate and location in determing the number of SROs per school. In Douglas County, some district SROs are responsible for overseeing more than 2,000 students and often split their time with a middle school. Spurlock said he would like to see nine more SROs placed in the district — one for every public high school and middle school he oversees. Spurlock said Douglas County was blessed to have access to $10 million but that it would take “a number of initiatives” to fund SROs. Lt. Lori Bronner with the sheriff ’s office said SROs are much more “than just a gun walking around.” They provide education about issues like cyberbullying and dating violence and engrain themselves in the student body. When threats are made against schools, they work with administrators to track down the origin. “They are part of that school com-
munity,” she said. “They are friends, they are family. That school, those students are part of their heart and their soul.” Tucker said memory of the STEM shooting was still at the forefront of his mind, and that the $10 million was an opportunity for community partners to work toward solutions and “put away our partisan politics.” “I still have a heavy heart as a father, a grandfather and one of the first school district responders who gathered, who descended upon STEM last Tuesday,” he said. He thanked voters for passing bond and mill levy override ballot issues in November, which he said helped pay for additional security measures in schools and that they’ve hired 75 counselors. “I hope that not a single school, not a single student, would ever have to endure what we saw last Tuesday,” Tucker said. “There’s just no excuse for that and there aren’t any words to really put that tragedy into perspective.”

Indoor gyms make the sport more accessible to all
WHERE TO BEGIN BOULDERING Earth Treks Earth Treks climbing gyms are a great place to get started climbing. It offers beginner classes and rental gear. More info at www. earthtreksclimbing.com/
BY CHRISTY STEADMAN CSTEADMAN@COLORADOCOMMUNITYMEDIA.COM
eing a climber for more than half his life, Kegan Minock has never heard an excuse that he thinks should deter someone from trying bouldering. It doesn’t matter your age or weight, he said, or even if you have a fear of heights. “Often, when people think of rock climbing, they think of going really high,” Minock said. “With bouldering, you’re not super high off the ground. But it’s just as challenging.” Minock, 27, general manager of ROCK’n & JAM’n gym in Centennial — ROCK’n & JAM’n also has a location in Thornton — has been climbing for 16 years and started focusing on bouldering about a decade ago. “To me, it’s more fun,” Minock said, adding he enjoys the gymnastics skills required and the problem-solving aspect of it. “It’s physical, but also mentally challenging.” In his blog written to serve as a beginner’s guide to bouldering, Willis Kuelthau, editor and climbing gear tester for 99Boulders.com, defines bouldering as “climbs that are protected by (landing/crash) pads rather than ropes.” He adds that bouldering is the physical act of completing “relatively short sequences that prioritize power and technique over long-term endurance.” A “boulder problem” is the common term for the climbing challenge, or route. It is “the sequence of holds (which have) a start point and end point,” Kuelthau wrote. Boulder problems have “various levels of difficulty.” Scott Rennack, marketing manager for The Spot Bouldering Gym, believes the term is coined boulder problems because of the problem-solving skills required to complete them. “You have to figure them out,” he said. “You can try a move 20 or 30 times before you figure it out. Even a hundred times isn’t that uncommon.” Rennack, 42, was introduced to climbing as a youth in the Boy Scouts, and “after 25 years, I’ve tried just about everything,” he said. Rennack was involved with starting the American Bouldering Series in 1998 — a competition that has since merged with USA Climbing and is now known as USA Climbing’s Bouldering Open National Championships. It took place this year on Feb. 1 and 2 in Redmond, Oregon. National championship titles went to Ashima Shiraishi for women and Sean Bailey for men. “Colorado has kind of always been in the center of the bouldering world,” Rennack said. And The Spot can also

· 700 Golden Ridge Road, Golden. 303-2229564. · 1050 W. Hampden Ave., Englewood. 303242-3555. Outdoors According to Nomad Colorado, an online travel and outdoor guide specific to Colorado, two popular spots for beginner outdoor bouldering — just outside of the Denver area — are Castlewood Canyon State Park in Castle Rock and Morrison Bouldering in Morrison. For an outdoor inner-city experience, but still outdoors, Nomad Colorado suggests the man-made boulders/walls at Westlands Park in Greenwood Village and Central Park in Stapleton, Denver. Scott Rennack, marketing manager for The Spot Bouldering Gym who has been climbing for about 25 years, sets a route when the gym’s Boulder location opened in 2002. The Spot Denver opened on April 18. COURTESY PHOTO claim it contributed to the history, he added. The Spot’s Boulder location, which opened in 2002, was the first bouldering-only gym to open in Colorado. It “missed the title for all of the U.S. by about two months,” Rennack said. “A place in Salt Lake City opened just before (The Spot) did.” Just south of downtown, The Spot Denver opened on April 18. Though English mountaineer Oscar Eckenstein, circa 1880s, and French alpinist Pierre Allain, in the 1930s and 1940s, preceded him, many climbers point to John Gill as the father of modern bouldering. According to Gill’s website, www. johngill.net, he “initiated a gymnastic approach to short rock climbs, specifically bouldering, in America in the 1950s.” Gill’s article “The Art of Bouldering,” published in the American Alpine Club Journal in 1969, “encouraged the recognition of bouldering as an authentic form of climbing,” states Gill’s website. According to an article by Alex Beale, owner and editor of 99Boulders. com, John “Verm” Sherman created the V Scale — now the standard grading scale for the boulder problems in the U.S. — in the late 1980s while climbing in Hueco Tanks, Texas. The International Federation of Sport Climbing’s (IFSC) website states that climbing competitions largely began in Europe in the 1980s. The site states that “in 1991, the first World Championship was organized in Frankfurt, Germany,” and bouldering
“was officially introduced as a new climbing discipline” in 1998. As fun as bouldering may be, Rennack would remind people that there are dangers that can come with it — injuries due to not knowing how to fall properly or adverse outdoor elements, such as no padded landing spots. Luckily, bouldering is a “very social” sport, said Hilary Harris, founder and co-owner of EVO Rock + Fitness in Louisville. “Everyone gets to try” the boulder problem, she said, “and everyone cheers each other on.” Minock “absolutely recommends” that anyone going bouldering outdoors for the first time should go with someone who has some experience with the sport. But, he said, it’s probably best for people to start out in a gym to get a foundation for bouldering, then transition to the outdoors. Rennack agreed. An indoor gym is a controlled environment and it’s “cactus-free, guaranteed.” In addition, many gyms offer introductory clinics and/or safety briefings. Coloradoans in general are enthusiastic about the outdoors, Minock said. “People come from all over the world to test out what we have to offer,” he added. “We (indoor climbing gyms) try to bring that experience to everyone. But it doesn’t matter if you’re bouldering indoors or outdoors, as long as you’re just enjoying the climb.” One reason indoor gyms are becoming more popular may be because they are making bouldering more acces-

Bouldering gyms “are popping up all over the country,” Harris said, “especially in urban areas where people don’t have access to the outdoors.” Harris, 51, has been climbing for more than 30 years. She did some competitive climbing while living in Europe in the early 1990s, but it was her background as an architect — along with her love of the sport — that inspired her to open EVO Rock + Fitness. EVO Bouldering Golden, which will be a bouldering-only gym expected to open in the winter of 2020, will be the fourth EVO gym in the U.S. “Climbing is a canvas to let people discover their full potential,” Harris said. “You have to face challenges that you think are impossible, but you work it out, move by move.”

Girls finished golf tourneys before weather went subpar
irl golfers haven’t had much time to fine-tune their games because of damp spring weather but all the state qualifying regional tournaments were able to be played before the rain and snow started falling last week. Katie Berrian captured medalist honors at the 5A Western Regional and will be one of the players to watch at the 5A State Tournament that will be held May 20-21 at Harmony Golf Club in Timnath. Berrian, a Regis Jesuit junior who lives in Castle Rock and tied for third in last season’s 5A state meet, was 4-under-par over the last six holes she played and fashioned a 4-under-par 67 at the Tiara Rado Golf Course in Grand Junction on May 7. Loveland won the Western regional title and Regis also qualified its team. Defending 5A state champion Emma Bryant of Eaglecrest carded a 2-overpar 74 to take medalist honors at the 5A South Regionals at Foothills Golf Club on May 6. Haena Kim of Highlands Ranch was second with a 75. Defending state champion Cherry Creek won the Southern team title and Highlands Ranch also qualified its team. Arapahoe, led by Ella Chism who
tied for second in the individual standings with a 3-over-par 75 along with ThunderRidge’s Lauren Tucker, won the 5A Central Regional team title held at Kennedy Golf Course on May 6. Grandview’s Morgan Ryan, the state runner-up last season, and teammate Amy Chitkoksoong, the 2017 state champion, tied for medalist honors in the 5A Northern Regionals at Aurora Hills with 2-over-par 74s. Rock Canyon won the Northern team championship and Grandview was the other team qualifier in the May 6 regional. Holy Family junior Hailey Schalk, the two-time defending Class 3A state champion, won medalist honors in the Region 3, Class 4A qualifying tournament at Fox Hill Golf Club on May 6 with a 78. The 4A state tourney is set for May 20-21 at Pelican Lakes in Greeley. Rising triathlon star Cassidy Hickey, a junior at Chaparral, is a rising star in a physically challenging sport. Considering most triathletes hit their stride post-college, Hickey seems to be few strides ahead of many other competitors. Hickey finished ninth in the junior
women’s division on April 28 at the ITU Duathlon World Championships in Pontevedra, Spain, with a time of 1:03:16 and was the top American finisher. She ran the 5K in :19:02 and was timed in :32:03 in the 20K Jim Benton bike race and clocked in at :10:43 in the 2.5K run. “She wasn’t 100 percent satisfied with the results but from our perspective that’s an awesome showing for her first international event,” said USA Triathlon communications manager Caryn Maconi. Hickey has collected a handful of national titles in the past 12 months in the sports of triathlon (swim-bike-run) and duathlon (run-bike-run). She was the 2018 overall champion in the Triathlon Non-Drafting Sprint Duathlon National Championships and was the overall champ in the 2018 Triathlon Youth Elite National Championships. She captured the title in the 15-19 age group at the 2018 USA Triathlon Age Group Spring National Championships. This year Hickey was the overall
winner at the 2019 USA Triathlon High School National Championships and at the 2019 USA Triathlon NonDrafting Sprint Duathlon National Championships. There are obviously many different categories in these premier national events and Hickey also has three runner-up and a third-place finish in four other United States meets. Local flavor on World Cup team Former Mountain Vista soccer player and Highlands Ranch resident Mallory Pugh and Golden High School graduate Lindsey Horan were named to the 23-player United States women’s national soccer team that will compete in the FIFA Women’s World Cup tournament that begins June 7 in France.

Rock Canyon knocks off top-seeded Broomfield STAFF REPORT
Rock Canyon, seeded 16th in the Class 5A girls soccer playoffs, pulled off a big upset in the May 10 second round by eliminating topseeded Broomfield. Cade Sheahan scored in the 20th minute and the Jaguars (14-3-0) held on to avenge a 3-2 semifinal loss to the Eagles last season and advance into the third round. Quarterfinal matches were scheduled for May 15 with the semifinals set for May 18 at Echo Park Automotive Stadium in Parker. The championship game will be at 7 p.m. May 22 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. In other second-round 5A games involving area teams, defending 5A state champion and second-seeded Grandview, which downed Broomfield in last season’s title game, advanced with a 3-1 victory over No. 15 Cherokee Trail. Kacy Johnston, Caylin Lyuenko and Kendra Gipson scored for the Wolves. Arapahoe, the 12th seed, downed No. 5 Cherry Creek, 2-1, in a battle on longtime Centennial League rivals.

Several first-round 5A games involving Douglas County teams that were scheduled for May 7 were postponed until May 8 because of the STEM School Highlands Ranch shooting. Grandview, Rock Canyon, Cherry Creek, Regis Jesuit and Arapahoe
claimed opening-round wins. Kacy Johnston scored twice and keeper Madison Livingston had to make just one save as second-seeded Grandview notched a dominating 4-0 win over No. 31 Horizon on May 7.

Rock Canyon tied No. 17 Legacy, 1-1, but advanced by winning the shootout, 4-2. Sophomores Riley Morris and Addie Follett scored for Creek in a 2-0 win over No. 28 Legend. Fairview shut out No. 21 Mountain Vista, 2-0 and Cherokee Trail eliminated No. 18 ThunderRidge, 5-1. In a first-round 4A contest, No. 2 Pueblo Centennial blanked No. 31 Littleton, 2-0, on May 8.

Both Lutheran and SkyView Academy were shut out in secondround matches on May 11. Topseeded Colorado Academy blanked Lutheran, 4-0, and No. 6 Aspen eliminated the Hawks, 4-0.
