Ute Pass Elementary to add sixth grade By Pat Hill

phill@coloradocommunitymedia.com Education that springs from devastation, Mountain Academy for Arts and Sciences debuts this fall at Ute Pass Elementary School. With the addition of sixth grade, students have the option of staying in Chipita Park another year before transferring to the middle school in Manitou Springs. Both schools are in District 14. To say that the principal, Chris BriggsHale, is enthusiastic about the academy is an understatement. “We’re going to hire a really spectacular dynamic teacher who can connect kids to science, technology, engineering and math,” he said. “If parents want a small intensive experience for their children, we’re putting a lot of exciting expertise toward this.” For students whose playground was destroyed in the flood of 2013, whose leaders kept a wary eye on the sky all summer, the academy is in an environmental laboratory. “We’ve moved from fear of the forest and flooding to a deeper understanding of it,” Briggs-Hale said. “The experiences we’ve gone through as a school are something we don’t want just for the administrators and teachers -but we want our kids to be fascinated by rain gauges, fascinated with the geology.” As waters inundated the playground last summer, the students learned more than envisioned by educators who design state standards. “The (Sand) gulch revealed an incredibly important connection to geological history and the history of Ute Pass.” Briggs-Hale said, adding that the school is built on an alluvial fan. Warming to the subject, the principal views the sixth-grade class as an innovation that affects the other grades as well. “It gives that age group the opportunity to lead the whole-school community in a kind of learning that is essential as we go into the 21st century,” he said. At the academy, the students are expected to engage in project-based learning with meaningful and relevant content. “They are learning, not just what the standards say, but globally-relevant skills and ways to think,” Briggs-Hale said. “The curriculum represents a type of thinking that pushes the envelope around science, technology, engineer and mathematics that is absolutely essential to our nation as we move into the future.” The education will include local experts talking about the riparian zone across Ute Pass Avenue from the school, an environmental textbook. “Instead of being an area of fear, there’s an entire ecosystem on the south side of the building that doesn’t exist on the north side,” Briggs-Hale said. “You’ve got plants on the south side of the building that

Woodland Park gearing up for USA Pro Cycling Challenge Riders will make several loops through town along Highway 24 By Danny Summers

dsummers@colorado communitymedia.com Race fans will be able to get an up close and personal look at some of the top riders in the world when the USA Pro Cycling Challenge comes to Woodland Park in August. “I believe we will double the size of our city,” said Mike Perini, Woodland Park Local Organizing Committee chair. “I am optimistically hopeful we will meet that expectation, and maybe more.” Woodland Park’s population is about 7,200. In 2012, an estimated 3,000 to 5,000 fans flocked to the Teller County community to watch an intermediate sprint in town. This year’s event is an even bigger deal because Woodland Park gets to host Stage 5 of the event on Friday, Aug. 22. “The ‘City Above The Clouds’ is deeply honored that our town is one of the new start locations for the 2014 USA Pro Challenge,” Perini said. “We know this is an extremely important segment of

Florissant water customers say yes By Pat Hill

phill@colorado communitymedia.com Voters in the Florissant Water & Sanitation District delivered a resounding yes to critical ballot issues in the election May 6. With $1 million in forgivable loans dangling in front of them, district voters overwhelming approved the two conditions for accepting the funds. By a 3-1 margin, voters approved the ballot measure asking the district to debruce, a critical component of the water district’s ability to accept the $1 million loan from the state of Colorado. The name refers to Doug Bruce of Colorado Springs who wrote the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, which Colorado voters passed in 1992. Under TABOR restrictions, special districts, or local entities, cannot receive state funds and go into debt without a vote of the people. As well, the board must have a reserve account to cover expenses for three months. Last week’s voter approval will allow the district to accept the funds to update the existing water plant and bring it up to standards set by the Colorado Department of Health. Currently,

the district is out of compliance. A second issue approved by voters gives the district the ability to accept an offer of aid from the Rural Community Assistance Corp., which will help pay off the $100,000 debt the district has incurred. Currently, the district is unable to pay its monthly bills. If the two ballot measures had not passed, the district would suffer consequences that would impact the water quality, sewer service, and property values of the homes within the District. In addition, the voters re-elected the existing board members Cathy Valdez, Ginger Bruvold, Chris Penland, Bob Faux and Barb Faux. The day after the election, the board released this statement: “From the entire board of directors of FWSD: Thankfully the customers of FWSD came through and overwhelmingly voted yes both issues by a 3-1 margin. Many thanks to all of our customers who attended the educational meetings and read the distributed information concerning the issues facing the district. We sincerely appreciate their trust in us; that we will do everything necessary to make sure that the district has pure, safe water for the future generations who live within the Water District.” The outcome hinged on approval by 54 eligible voters.

Teller asked to defend gaming funds By Pat Hill

phill@colorado communitymedia.com In a case that never seems to end, an issue that pops up like a recurring nightmare, once again Teller County has to hope that its revenue from the Limited Gaming Impact Fund remains the same. Despite the fact that the Colorado Court of Appeals dismissed the lawsuit filed by Gilpin County over the percentage of the distribution, Teller County is still dealing with the repercussions. Since 1992, Gilpin has received 80 percent of the funds while Teller gets the remainder. “We’re not finished defending our gaming,” said county administrator Sheryl Decker, in a report to Teller County commissioners May 8. In 2010, Gilpin County commissioners sued, seeking 90 percent of the revenue, losing in the Denver District Court, the gaming division and the appeals court. “Gilpin County is now asking that the Limited Gaming Impact Fund be distributed on a percentage basis similar to direct distribution,” Decker said. In the past, Gilpin based its argument on the amount of tax dollars each

Photo by Pat Hill county pays rather than the defined percentage based on the amount of adjusted gross proceeds generated in each of the three gaming towns, two of which are Gilpin. Running interference, the Department of Local Affairs has asked for an accounting of how Teller uses the $1.7 million of its direct distribution. “And that’s the latest attempt to redirect money from Teller to Gilpin,” Decker said. Commission chair Dave Paul reacted. “The

gaming division, the courts, legislature and now DOLA,” Paul said, referring to support from the state agencies as well as the legislature. The issue now rests with DOLA’s director Reeves Brown, Decker said. “He can decide how to distribute the funds based on the applications,” she added. “DOLA is very open; they just want to know how we use the funds.” As well, DOLA is asking Gilpin County to de-

fend its use of $9 million, Decker added. In other business, the commissioners approved a resolution for a specialuse permit on 604 acres at Quaker Ridge Camp. The approval gives the goahead for improvements in accordance with the county’s land-use regulations. In a correction from a previous article, Commissioner Marc Dettenrieder was appointed to the Governor’s Commission on Community Service.

CDOT implements flood protocol Staff report The Colorado Department of Transportation is implementing this year’s protocol when flash flooding threatens U.S. 24 west of Colorado Springs. When one of the following occurs – a rainstorm is forecast, a flash flood watch is in place, Doppler radar is forecasting rain, or text alerts from rain gauges indicate significant moisture for the Waldo Canyon Burn Scar Area – CDOT crews immediately will be dispatched to monitor and patrol Highway 24 between Manitou Springs and Cascade for the duration of any predicted rain activity. “We’ll have one person stationed at

Cascade for eastbound closures, one at the Cave of the Winds for westbound closures, and a plow truck continuously traveling up and down the corridor for monitoring purposes,” said CDOT Maintenance Foreman Kenny Quintana. “A supervisor will also be overseeing these operations and serve as the point of contact for all required notifications regarding the status of the highway.” In addition, anytime the National Weather Service issues a Flash Flood Warning or one-fourth of an inch or more of rain is detected by the burn scar rain gauges, CDOT and the Colorado State Patrol will close the highway. CDOT and the CSP also will sweep the corridor to ensure

there are no individuals and/or vehicles remaining in the canyon. The highway will be reopened when the Flash Flood Warning has been lifted, the rain storm has ended, any stormrelated debris has been removed and the CDOT supervisor has determined the highway is safe for travel. CDOT also will activate its electronic message signs to read as follows on U.S. 24 and Interstate 25 when possible flooding is forecast: Flash Flood Watch: “Flash Flood Watch” “Please Use Caution” Flash Flood Advisory “Flash Flood Advisory”

“Travel Not Recommended” Flash Flood Warning “Flash Flood Warning” “Road Closed” The highway may also be closed for a Flash Flood Watch or Flash Flood Advisory if the supervisor deems it necessary for public safety. However, if skies remain predominantly clear and the chance for rain is minimal during a Flash Flood Watch, CDOT crews may stand down. If a Flash Flood Watch or Advisory is issued for several hours or days and skies remain overcast, CDOT crews will continue monitoring the canyon area. This protocol continues through Sept. 30.

would spend on reviewing these projects “without compromising the integrity of the use or surrounding properties.” Another advantage is that it would encourage the mixed-use construction that is becoming a national trend. Because permitted use construction would be administratively reviewed, these projects would not come to either the planning commission or city council and neighboring property owners would not be notified. Commissioners were concerned that surrounding property owners would not have the opportunity to voice their concerns. Riley said this is the only disadvantage she could see with the ordinance but she assured the commissioners that there are usually more problems with commercial development than there are with residential development and that the planning staff would carefully review such things as noise, parking, traffic and all the other typical concerns people have with any new project. Three commissioners didn’t buy her explanation and voted against recommending approval of the ordinance. Commissioner Jon DeVaux wanted safeguards that would keep these mixed-use properties off the city’s main street. However, Riley pointed out that the State Farm Building and the 7 Arrows Gallery, both located on U.S. 24, already have apartments above them. “The more restrictive an ordinance is

the harder it is for use to enforce it,” she said. Giving the example of the Buck’s Mountain Saloon property on U.S. 24, DeVaux said that even in the hardest of economic times he would rather see that building stay empty than to see 20 people living in it. City ordinance allows no more than five unrelated people to live in a single dwelling but doesn’t set a maximum for the number of related people living in the same space. “Clearly, some developers need to be watched carefully,” Commissioner Tom Rollinger said. “When you mix commercial with residential there could be problems,” Commissioner Marti Propes said. Four other commissioners felt differently, especially since the amendment limits the number of dwellings in a single

structure to no more than two. “I am comfortable with this low-magnitude change,” Commissioner Phil Mella said. “The larger the permitted use the greater the impact it will have.” The city doesn’t have an actual mixeduse ordinance and currently mixed uses are only permitted with administrative review in the Woodland Station overlay. “This ordinance is a good start toward encouraging the construction of more mixed-use properties without going through a costly and time-consuming rewrite of almost the entire city zoning code,” Riley said. This amendment will go to city council on May 15. The public hearing is set for the first council meeting in June.

WP planning considers zoning amendment By Norma Engelberg Contributing writer

At its May 8 meeting, the Woodland Park Planning Commission looked at a new ordinance that started as a suggestion during a Main Street Community Assessment focus group discussion. The new ordinance would amend the city’s zoning codes to make the construction of up to two dwelling units in the same structure a permitted use in all of the city’s commercial zones — neighborhood commercial, community commercial, service commercial, central business district and heavy service commercial/light industrial. Currently city code requires builders to obtain a conditional use permit to construct any kind of residential units in commercial zones even if those units are sharing the building with an office or shop. City Planning Director Sally Riley said approving this ordinance would have several advantages for property owners and the city. The time it would take to process this kind of construction would be cut from a minimum of 90 days for the public review of a conditional use permit to seven days for a permitted use. The application and processing cost for a zoning development permit is $102 but application and processing cost for a conditional use permit is at least $448 and doesn’t include notification and publishing costs. It would also reduce the time staff

Fisher sails off to Naval Academy By Pat Hill

phill@coloradocommunitymedia.com When it comes to extreme scholarships, Anne Fisher, 17, crushed the odds and received nominations to the United States Military, the Air Force and the Naval academies. Along with America’s elite academies, she also got the scholarship nod from the ROTC, Air Force, Army and Navy. Given the choices, she picked the United States Naval Academy in New London, Conn., where she starts school July 1, soon after graduating from Woodland Park High School. The scholarship was the result of a Presidential nomination, one of only 100 awarded in the nation. With the long-term goal of completing

medical school, Fisher has her eye on the next eight years, four years of undergraduate studies, a year of service to the Navy, followed by another three years of schooling. “My ultimate goal is to be a doctor for the military,” she said. Fisher credits her parents, Ron and Denise Fisher, both physical therapists, for her interest in medicine. “I’ve always been exposed to the medical field, always wanted to be a doctor,” she said. “The military offers me a way to be a doctor without having outrageous student loans.” There’s another reason, too. “I really want to serve my country and give back to the community,” she said. “So the military is a good spot.” In a time when women still fight for equality in some areas, Fisher found inspi-

ration in her neighbor, Brigadier General Dana Capozzella, commander of the Colorado National Guard. “She’s been very successful,” Fisher said. Along with the role models, Fisher credits hard work and her high-school teachers for the education status that gained her entry into one of the nation’s finest academies. “I guess I had great motivation; I don’t think I’m that intelligent, like some of the geniuses in my math class,” she said. “I made sure I was really on top of my homework.” Acknowledging the distance of the academy from home, Fisher is ready. “I think it will be good, just to get away and start something new, try new experiences,” she said. “I like adventure and the Navy offers a lot of chances to travel. I like to challenge myself.”

head east on Highway 24 and make a loop near McDonald’s and Sonic. They are expected to go up and down Highway 24 several times. At some point they are expected to loop behind Tweeds and work their way back to the start line on Midland and then head west on Highway 24 toward the finish line in Breckenridge about four hours later. “We are very excited that the Pro Challenge people were willing to do this in our town,” Perini said. “People who come to watch the start of the race will get a chance to see the riders for a while. “It’s great for business owners, too.” Perini added that the Woodland Park LOC chose this loop for specific reasons. “We looked at several options but chose the approved route as we felt it had the best advantage for spectators as well as businesses,” he said. “In addition, we were limited on the amount of time and distance that the cyclists could remain in our community before traveling to the finish line for Stage 5 in Breckenridge. “We believe that the route selected is the best to draw fan excitement as well as showcase our main street. There’s not a bad view anywhere along the approved route. It is going to be fantastic.” The route to Breckenridge takes the

riders on a quiet run through the Pike National Forest on Tarryall Road, which was unpaved until just last year. Riders then head to Fairplay to begin the long grind up 11,500 foot Hoosier Pass, the highest point in the race. Then it is on to Breckenridge, where last year’s challenging finish up Moonstone Road will be repeated again. According to Paul Magnuson, the Woodland Park co-technical director for the race, the actual official starting point for the race will probably be near Bluebird Hill on Highway 24. “The start of the race is neutral until that point,” said Magnuson, owner of Team Telecycle in Woodland Park. Magnuson added that the loop through Woodland Park should last anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes. The Woodland Park LOC is working feverishly to make the Woodland Park start a festive event. “We’ll have a start village, kid’s zone, and activities before and after the race, concert and different options to keep people in town,” Perini said. “We are expecting businesses to provide a myriad of services for race watchers along the route. We are working hard with partners, vendors and exhibitors to make this a one-of-a-kind experience in our community. “And we’re hoping to get a good group of folks up from the Springs. We’re collaborating with folks from the Springs to promote this.”

couldn’t in a million years grow on this side.” The land with the split personality is an avenue into the future. “Kids will have an edge in understanding how to analyze, engineer, create art around an ever-changing dynamic world.” Briggs-Hale said. “Regardless of what you think the causes of these changes are, that doesn’t matter, the world is changing.” The devastation, in fact, was an educational nudge. “If we stay stuck in a nineteenthcentury schooling mode, we’ll get nineteenthcentury results,” the principal said. “And that’s not what we’re after; we’re after the development of great people and incredible thinkers.”

On the evening of May 21, the Mountain Top Cycling Club will host the 2014 Ride of Silence to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while riding on the road. The five-mile ride is free and open to cyclists of all kinds and abilities. Riders must wear a helmet and sign a waiver before the ride begins. The ride will be a relatively slow — about 12 mph — silent procession through Woodland Park, beginning and ending at the high-school parking lot. The Woodland Park Police will escort the riders and Teller County Search and Rescue will direct traffic through the intersections.

The Ride of Silence is held internationally to raise awareness to motorists and cyclists of the responsibilities both have to share the roadways in a safe manner. The ride begins at 7 p.m. When the riders have returned to the high-school parking lot, there will be light refreshments and presentations. Then the riders who were killed will be remembered, and balloons will be released, one for each of the seven riders who died on Colorado roads in 2013. Twenty-five-year-old Eunjei Cho was hit and killed while riding on the shoulder of a highway. The driver was charged with driving under the influence of drugs.

SALOME’S STARS FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 12, 2014

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) This is a good week to look at healing bruised feelings and re-establishing weakened relationships. It’s also a good week to start new projects and make new job-linked contacts. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) Music and art dominate the week, giving the sensual Bovine a lot to appreciate. On the practical side, deal firmly, but fairly, with those who might try to undermine your work efforts. GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 20) Good feelings continue to flow from your recent efforts to reconnect with family and friends. But be ready to defuse a dispute before it can disrupt all that peace and harmony.

CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) TA practical view of a romanticized situation could help to clarify some of its more confusing aspects before you make a decision that could be tough to undo later on. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) Pay more attention to what a recent spate of workplace criticism might say about your performance and not what you think it implies about you personally. Some flexibility might be called for. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) With new information, and new promises of support (not to mention growing self-confidence), this could be a good time to restart a project you couldn’t quite handle before. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Before you decide to close down a problem-loaded project and make a fresh start with someone else, try once more to reach a compromise with your balky partner. He or she might surprise you. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) While you continue earning points for your sharp negotiating skills, be alert for an attempt to undercut your efforts. You’ll need to provide solid facts and figures to stay in the game. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) A minor health problem might cause you to ease up on your usually busy schedule. But you’ll soon be back in the saddle and ready to pick up the reins and charge ahead. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) The adventurous Sea Goat might be eager to take on a new challenge. But before you do, you might want to take some time to check out previously overlooked factors. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) A feeling of being overwhelmed by all that you have to do can be eased by setting priorities. Deal with the most urgent and time-sensitive situations first, and then work down the line. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) Creating a calm, peaceful place for yourself in the middle of a roiling emotional whirlpool this week starts when you, and no one else, decide how to make decisions about your life. BORN THIS WEEK: Your determination to stick with your principles wins the admiration of everyone who knows you. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

Support the local parlour house For the Courier The Old Homestead began as an exclusive brothel in 1896 during Colorado’s Gold Rush and is today a museum visited by hundreds of locals and tourists each year due to the support of local residents. May is National Preservation Month and The Old Homestead, once a grand brothel for the rich men of the Gold Rush Era in Cripple Creek, will offer free tours to those who live or work in the Cripple Creek and Victor district.

Creek in its heyday of the Gold Rush and the part that The Old Homestead played. Built in 1896 by the famous madam Pearl DeVere to service the powerful men of the Cripple Creek mining district who became rich during Colorado’s Gold Rush, this historic building has been preserved through the support of local residents and businesses. Today the ladies of the house are local women who keep the story of the Old West alive through the stories they share about the lives of the girls who worked in the brothel and of the gold miners who made Cripple Creek famous. The Old Homestead Museum is open for tours on weekends and open seven days a week starting May 24. Regular admission is $5 for a 30-minute personalized tour of the house that was once the hottest ticket in town.

opinions / yours and ours

Building railroads and keeping secrets Love, pain and money cannot be kept a secret. They soon betray themselves. But building a railroad? Maybe it is possible — at least long enough to get the job done. In June of 1887, J.J. Hagerman, president of the Colorado Midland, announced that regular passenger trains would soon be running between Colorado Springs and Buena Vista. He had one fairly large problem, however. “He had bought a site for the Midland station near the Santa Fe tracks, but he had no means of getting his trains directly from the Midland’s eastern end of the track, near the D. & R.G’s (Denver & Rio Grande’s Railroads) line, to his depot’s location,” notes John J. Lipsey about the railroads predicament in Colorado Springs, in a historic paper published by the Denver Westerners in January of 1962. “On Aug. 15, 1887, Hagerman wrote to one of the Midland’s directors (Busk) in New York: ‘I tried to make arrangements with Evans for use of the street (Moreno Avenue) occupied by the D. T. & G. (Denver, Texas and Gulf Railroad) across this town and made him a liberal offer, but in

vain. Therefore we had to ‘jump’ him.”’ “Jumping,” in railroad terms of the times, was the practice of — when negotiation and law suits were determined to take too long, or not likely to succeed — laying track in the middle of the night. Tracks were installed before a court could grant an injunction prohibiting the action. Once the track was down, it seemed to settle the matter and was rarely ripped up. Hageman had tried to get Dr. John Evans, M.D., president of the Denver, Texas, and Gulf Railroad (one of the predecessors of the Colorado and Southern), to allow the Midland to use the D .T. & G. tracks or to lay a Midland Track on Moreno Avenue in Colorado Springs. At that time, the area was then used as a yard by C. & S.

At the crux of the matter was regionalism. The Colorado Midland was a Colorado Springs railroad. The D.T. & G. was a Denver outfit that diverted mountain traffic to Denver and away from Colorado Springs. Evans, former Governor of Colorado and founder of the Colorado Seminary (now the University of Denver), interests were aligned with that effort. So it is not surprising that the Colorado Springs City Council at the time was willing to help counter. “Hagerman persuaded them to call a secret meeting of the council on Saturday night, when no court was sitting which would issue an injunction. At this meeting and ordinance was quickly passed granting the Colorado Midland a right-of-way across the city on Moreno Avenue,” wrote Lipsey. Hagerman was ready. With no publicity he had assembled men, mules, horses, ties, rails, engines, cars, spikes, plates, switches, tools, food, coffee and lights. Plenty of lights — torches, flares, lanterns, and fuel for bright bonfires. The six blocks of Moreno must have looked like a World’s Fair Midway.” The moment that the ordinance

passed, horse-drawn scrapers began working on the elevations and smoothing a roadbed. Ties were place at measured intervals, rails followed and were bolted together and spiked down. Ballast was added and tamped to secure positioning. Engines pushed forward a supply of ties and rails. Teamsters shouted, rail-toters groaned, sledges rang on spikeheads. “Before John Evans, a faithful Methodist, was ready for church on the Sunday morning that followed, he must have been notified by his agents that the Midland track was laid on Moreno, and that Midland trains were able to load passengers at the Midland depot and depart for Buena Vista. It was no doubt an unhappy Sabbath for Dr. Evans. No court would sit on Sunday. Neither then, nor later, was he able to undo what Hagerman and the Midland had done that Saturday night. And very probably he regretted his refusal to take money for the right-of-way the Midland got for nothing,” wrote Lipsey. Building a railroad across town in Colorado Springs could be kept secret, at least long enough to get the job done.

Throw in the fact that our bodies naturally break down the older we get, it was just a matter of time until certain injuries and other things started to catch up with me. About 18 months ago I began experiencing a pain in my right leg. It started in my lower back and worked its way down my leg. The pain was irritating and very painful at times, but manageable. But as the pain grew worse over time my overall quality of life went from 100 percent to 90, 80, 70, etc. My regular doctor told me the pain was related to my sciatica nerve. She gave me exercises to do and upped my ibuprofen medication to 800 milligrams three times a day to relieve the inflammation. By January of this year the pain was worse than ever. My quality of life was

down to about 25 percent and I could no longer work out at the gym or walk even 25 feet without having to stop and catch my breath. I knew something more than inflamed sciatica was going on inside my body. My pain level reached a solid 9, so I went to urgent care and the doctor who checked me out told me I had back problems. I was confused since the pain was not in my back - per se - but in my leg. He went on to inform me that nerves were being pinched and that I probably had a bulging or herniated disc. Next were x-rays, followed by an MRI and a visit to the back specialist. It was troubling to hear from my back doctor that my spine was in bad shape. He told me that there is more going on with my spine than the trouble caused at L5, L4 and S1. He made it clear that surgery was needed to repair the damage. I asked him what the alternatives were and he suggested epidural steroid/cortisone spinal injections. He also said physical therapy could help. My first spinal injection was an amazing success. The pain went away almost instantly and by the next morning I felt better than I had in 25 years. I felt like a new man and was elated that I didn’t have to live in

pain anymore. But five days later the pain began to come back. By the time I had my second injection two weeks after the first I was in a level 6 pain. The second injection didn’t nearly have the same effect. The pain came back in a few days. By the time the third injection rolled around two weeks later I was more than happy to have that big needle stuck into my spine. You can probably already guess that the third injection didn’t take away the pain for long. Four weeks later I was screaming in a level 9.5 pain. I received a fourth injection. It took away some of the pain, but my leg remained numb and a constant pain stayed with me. Realizing that surgery was inevitable, I called my back doctor and set a date for him to filet me. I will be out of commission for about four weeks. But if all goes well I will be back covering events and mingling with the community by mid June. I have written a series of columns that will appear in our papers and online while I am away. I hope you enjoy them. The support I have already received is amazing. I am truly a blessed man.

The surgeon is about to cut into me On Monday, May 19, I will be having posterior lateral two-level spinal fusion surgery at L5, L4 and S1 to decompress the nerve roots. The surgery will take place at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital. According to my doctor, the surgery will last three hours. It is standard to be in the hospital three to five nights after this type of surgery. It will take about six weeks for the fusion to heel. Plenty of physical therapy is also involved. This is major surgery with the possibility of several things going wrong; bleeding to death, pneumonia and infection. But this surgery is performed so often that the success rate is very high. I am sure that many of you have undergone this type of surgery. I welcome your comments and suggestions. Now you know the facts surrounding spinal fusion surgery. Here is the reason why I have to do this. I jogged up to three miles a day for almost 20 years. I played full-court basketball in numerous leagues. I also pitched and played outfield in adult baseball leagues for more than 25 years. I threw my last game in 2010. Turkey Bowl football games on Thanksgiving were an annual event.

DDA is off to a good start 2014 is off to a good start with a lot going on in the Woodland Park Downtown Development Authority. The brand new expanded Woodland Hardware & Home store opened its doors for business in March 2014. If you haven’t been into the store, stop in soon to take a look at their wonderful new space and expanded inventory. Woodland Station Development: In April of 2013, the DDA entered into a Disposition and Development Agreement with the development team for Lot 2 and the former Amerigas property. The agreement will allow for a “master developer” to develop and market the remainder of the Woodland Station property, including lots 3, 4 and 5. This approach will allow for continuity in design and a unified development approach. As you have probably noticed, there is a lot going on at the Trail Ridge Apartments site, including buildings coming out of the ground. This project will provide an excellent and much needed housing opportunity for Woodland Park. It’s projected that the first units will be available in September. In March, Tractor Supply closed on the land for the project, and they have started moving dirt. They have selected a general contractor to build the project and it’s expected that the store will open in August. Tractor Supply will offer farm and ranch supplies.

We’ve been hearing about it for years: comments on downtown traffic. Do we need parking on the street? Slower speeds? A bypass? This issue came up in the longterm DDA Vision during their February retreat, and also came up at the recent Main Street Community Assessment as an important consideration. In fact, in 2014 the city of Woodland Park will conduct a Traffic and Circulation study in regard to these very issues, with the purpose: “Identify effective alternatives to relieve the congestion on Highway 24 with improved local street connections …” DDA BOARD 2014 RETREAT RESULTS: The DDA Board of Directors held their annual retreat at the Edgewood Inn in February.

Jet lag: There is an app for that Let’s see if you can figure out the catalyst of these symptoms: fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, constipation or diarrhea, confusion, dehydration, headache, irritability, nausea, sweating, coordination problems, dizziness and memory loss. Am I describing MERS, Malaria, Cholera, or, perhaps, Smallpox? These symptoms actually describe the dreaded condition feared by frequent flyers all over the world known as desynchronosis or simply … jet lag. If you plan on flying this summer and will be crossing two or more time zones, you may want to read on. The Mayo Clinic describes jet lag syndrome as a “temporary sleep disorder that can affect anyone who quickly travels across multiple time zones.” It is caused when your body’s internal clock or circadian rhythms fall out of sync with the cues from a new time zone, such as light exposure and dining times. The number and severity of symptoms are driven by the number of time zones crossed and direction of travel. Travelers flying north or south experience the fewest problems. Those headed west gain time and usually have a pretty easy time adjusting to their new time zone. People airborne east, however, experience the most problems because they lose time. They find themselves in an environment where meal time, sleep schedules, bowel movements and exposure to light and dark are all pushed ahead disturbing the body’s circadian rhythms. How quickly you recover from jet lag depends on the number time zones crossed. The rule of thumb is that it takes a day to adjust for every one to two time zones

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor: Calling All Democrats and Independents. Politics isn’t always about party choice. Sometimes it comes down to pure, unadulterated strategy. So please listen up democrats and independents because this strategy is right up our liberal alley. The fact is that it seems to be the ‘norm’ here in Teller County that no democratic candidate will be running for a local office during the June 24, 2014 primary. In fact, even state-wide, the primary election has no Democratic candidates vying for the same office. So what does that mean to us Democrats? It means that the Primary process this year will have no significant impact on the November general election ballot as far as Democratic candidates go. Democrats do not have any primary run-offs to be decided during the June 24 primary. However, we are not off -the-hook. And here’s why. The Teller County Republicans have shot themselves in the foot this election season by nominating a candidate who is looking to unseat a darn good Republican incumbent. Now please don’t be too cynical as there are and have been darn good republicans, past and present. Abe Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower

and locally, my personal favorite, Joel Hefley come to mind. Sometimes good people just have fundamental differences but are nonetheless good people. Betty Clark-Wine is one of those good people. We have a situation in Teller County where the Incumbent Assessor, Betty Clark-Wine, was forced to pull together several hundred signatures in order to be on the Republican ballot. She proved her true grit and got the signatures. The June 24 primary election will decide whether Betty Clark-Wine retains her office or the usurper, Violet Watt, will unseat an Assessor who has shown respect, fairness, competence, professionalism, and done a very good job since she was duly elected in 2010. The former assessor, Tom King, hired Violet Watt before he left office. Watt took a County job, acquired an appraiser’s license while collecting her salary from the taxpayers, gleaned roughly five years of training experience ironically mostly under the supervision of Betty Clark-Wine. Watt has now turned on the elected Assessor in an attempt to gain the office for herself. How can Democrats and Independents help? Letters continues on Page 12, 23 and 27

allowed on the tours. Be sure to reserve tour dates early. Reservations may be made online at the website or by leaving a message at 719-689-4211 or after May 24, at 719689-5509. The maximum on each tour is 13. The best way to reserve a mine tour is on the website – online reservations receive first priority. In addition to the mine tours, step back in time and pan for gold at the museum. Panning is included in this year’s admission prices. Participants can also step back in time by hiking on the Trails of Gold just outside of town — see up close the 1890s gold mines that made Victor and Cripple Creek famous, or walk the downtown streets filled with historic buildings and shops.

crossed, so if you’ve crossed six time zones, your body will adjust in 3 to 6 days. MedicineNet.com offers a number of home remedies that appear to work for some. They say staying in shape and continuing to exercise once you land will allow you to adjust quicker. Avoid alcohol and caffeine the day before and during your flight as both cause dehydration and can disrupt sleep. Other suggestions are to move around on the plane, break up your trip into two legs and adopt the local schedule as soon as you arrive. Many long-distance frequent flyers use melatonin, Valerian root, a homeopathic product called “No Jet Lag” or prescription sleep medications to help them adjust to a

new sleep schedule. Experts recommend that you confer with your physician prior to this approach. And for you techies out there, there is a new “free” app based on a mathematical model for mitigating jet lag created by biological mathematician Daniel Forger. Forger spent 10 years building this app, which is based on sleep study data gleaned from research done at Harvard and the University of Michigan. According to this model, the best way to beat jet lag is to adjust your exposure to dawn and dust each day. The app is called Entrain and can be downloaded at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/entrain/ id844197986?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4. If you want to help researchers at the University of Michigan refine this app, there’s an option that allows you to send your data back to the scientists.

Loretta found her corner of paradise on earth after retiring from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, and moving to Woodland Park, Colorado with her husband Arnold. She took great delight in the deer, rabbits and foxes that visited, in providing breakfast for the many birds and squirrels, and in walking her beloved dogs through the woods and meadows. Loretta was just as popular with the two-legged beings she encountered. She loved to visit with family, friends and neighbors, and the shopkeepers in town knew her first by her smile, then by her name. She was always concerned about the wellbeing of others, putting their concerns ahead of her own. All who met Loretta came away with a new friend, and she will be greatly missed. She is survived by her daughter Linda and son Larry.

By temporarily re-affiliating your political party whereby we will be able to vote for that elusive creature, a good Republican. It is very easy to go on-line and complete the registration form, email it, snail mail it, or simply drop it off at the office of the Clerk & Recorder in Woodland Park or Cripple Creek. Go to GoVoteColorado.com and change your affiliation to Republican by clicking on “Manage my registration” and you can make a big difference in who

assesses your real estate. We Dems won’t have an elective choice unless we take this step. Your form must be submitted to the clerk and recorder before May 23. If on-line is problematic for you, you can still re-register by going into the Clerk & Recorder’s office in Woodland Park or Cripple Creek. Personally I want a proven professional assessing my property values, not an old hippie who is seizing the opportunity to grab at a brass ring. After June 24, simply reverse the process and get back to your Democratic affiliation. Jineen McWherter, Florissant

Worthey begins term with good vibes By Pat Hill

phill@colorado communitymedia.com Green Mountain Falls Mayor Lorrie Worthey started her second term on a note of harmony with the board of trustees, a departure from the last year of her first term. Rather than dissent, the new board members Michael Butts, David Cook and Chris Quinn joined Worthey and Mayor Pro tem Tyler Stevens in complete agreement, aye, or nay, on every vote May 6. They approved a special event permit for Bronc Day Aug. 2 with a $250 fee, in addition to permits for two summer concerts sponsored by the Ute Pass Triangle Chamber of Commerce, agreeing on permit fees of $20 apiece. The board also approved a special-use request to operate property at 11175 Falls Ave. as a vacation rental. With the resignation of trustees Howard Price and Ralph LoCascio, the board begins Worthey’s second term with two vacancies and an empty public-works

department, whose director Rob McArthur resigned in April. However, the trustees’ resignations remove the expense to the town of holding the scheduled recall election on May 20. As far as road-maintenance urgency, El Paso County is providing the relief. A presentation by Jim Reid, executive director of the county’s public services, paved the way for the town to have the roads graded, the sinkhole on Grandview repaired and the boulder on Falls Avenue removed. “If you’ll provide the equipment we’ll provide the driver,” Reid said. “Right now you have immediate needs; I’m going to pick up the tab on the employee, I just need to know what you need done.” Reid said he intends to hire a former employee who has 30 years of experience and recently retired. The employee will be part-time and covered under the county’s workmen’s compensation plan. “If you accept our offer I’ll get somebody out here,

hopefully, this week,” he said. “What about the cost of injury to the employee or damage to the town’s equipment?” said the Town Attorney Matthew Krob. Reid said the details would have to be worked out. However, before accepting Reid’s offer, trustee Cook, the board’s liaison to the public works department, said he’d check with the town’s insurance provider, CIRSA, to finetune the liability issues. On another note, former trustee Mac Pitrone, who was term-limited, spoke from the audience. “Regarding the IGA (intergovernmental agreement) — on the 16th of April several employees resigned,” Pitrone said. “It’s been three

weeks; there were two positions open, the marshal’s and public works’ director’s position.” Historically, the town advertises when a position is open, he said. “In the first position you have hired somebody without the benefit of

advertising,” Pitrone said, referring to the re-hiring of Marshal Tim Bradley, after he resigned in November with a $12,000 severance package. Bradley was hired back within days of Worthey’s victory. “As for the second position, you haven’t even

discussed the idea of replacing that position. You’ve had three special meetings; I think you’ve been remiss in ignoring these issues.” Worthey referred to the presentation by Reid, which preceded Pitrone’s complaint.

CREATIVE ADVENTURE

Francisco Sotomayor crafted this 44 Magnum and scorpion from one piece of obsidian from a mine in Mexico. Photos by Rob Carrigan

Francisco thrives on artistic evolution By Pat Hill

phill@coloradocommunitymedia.com In the hands of Francisco Sotomayor, obsidian is the canvas for a sculpture that incites a range of emotions from tension to curiosity. Creative adventure for the Divide artist, the sculpture’s theme symbolizes man against an unknown adversary. On the surface, the piece is a scorpion with a claw on the trigger of a Magnum 44, each carved from one piece of obsidian, volcanic glass mined in Guadalajara, Mexico. “A metaphor for man, the scorpion is the most-armored, the most awesome insect out there, because he’s got the claws up front, armored body, stinger and fangs,” Sotomayor said. “This is an unbelievable creature of our Earth.” The piece is evocative, teases the imagination. “If I’d had a hand squeezing the trigger, that just wouldn’t have been as cool, would have bad connotations,” he said. “So the premise was could a scorpion squeeze the trigger on a cocked and loaded 44 Magnum?” Maybe, maybe not, the viewer decides. “I wanted to create tension, with the scorpion the metaphor for humanity,” he said. Sotomayor tested the effect on the viewer during the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show in February. But first he had to

convince the local police the gun was not real, proof required before being allowed entry into one of the largest shows in the nation. “When I put this in a case I always aim the gun at the viewer,” he said. “When you come to look at it, you can see that the scorpion is about ready to squeeze the trigger.” Infused with energy over the new direction of his art, Sotomayor is almost childlike in his enthusiasm over a serendipitous discovery. With a light tap of his finger, the gun chimes for about three seconds with the sound of F-sharp. “Listen to how long it goes; it’s a beautiful song — you wouldn’t think a gun could sing like that,” he said. “I think it rings because it’s cylindrical.” The F-Sharp is the same note that came from the main room at the Pyramid at Gaza, the same sound to which Native Americans tune their flutes, he said. The gun is modeled after a 1978 Ruger Super Black Hawk used in the “Dirty Harry” and “Enforcer” movies. An artistic evolution for Sotomayor, the sculpture takes the artist into literary and historical territory. “I had to learn American Indian primitive flint-knapping skills. The primitive man had to conquer stone tools,” he said. “I’m a man of the future but I’ve reached all the way back to the past to tie a piece together that shows modern man and primitive

Francisco Sotomayor has taken a new direction for his art. Sculptor of the marble American Woman, Sotomayor today uses obsidian, Sonora Sunrise and chrysocolla. man.” In addition to creating art from obsidian, Sotomayor has sculpted frogs from the earth’s gifts, including Sonora Sunrise and chrysocolla, which is mined by Danielle Sotomayor in Arizona. Danielle is the daughter of Francisco and his wife

Mindy. The sculptures are a departure from Sotomayor’s earlier work, the marble Pas de Deux and the American Woman, large pieces each carved in marble in 1990 and 2003, respectively.

Levy launches youth fitness center By Pat Hill

phill@coloradocommunitymedia.com From batting cages to a fitness room, High Altitude Baseball and Conditioning Gym responds to the needs of youthful athletes who want to say fit. A first for the area’s adolescents and teenagers, the fitness center in Woodland Park is the latest project for Neil Levy, who opened the batting cages earlier this year. With state-of-the-art equipment, in addition to training provided by Jeremiah Struble, young people have the option of staying in shape. “For the first time, athletes will be able to train year around,” said Cord Prettyman, a consultant on the project. “I got involved with this because I really like what Neil is doing. He’s opened up a classy batting-cage operation and brought in an expert baseball coach, Buck Thomas.” Master Personal Trainer and owner of Absolute Workout, Prettyman has glowing words as well for Struble. “Jeremiah’s connection with kids is just amazing; he’s right on their level,” he said. “Kids are instantly comfortable with him.” Before earning a degree this year in exercise science from Colorado State University-Pueblo, Struble served a 400-hour internship with Prettyman that included stints with Matt Thessing at Spine and Extremity Rehabilitation Center, David Pow-

young man,” Prettyman said. “He’s an outstanding multi-sport athlete and was a superb high-school and collegiate baseball player.” While at the university, Struble was named Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week seven times and most valuable player in 2013. For Struble, the new business venture is a chance to be a leader and help young people hone their athletic skills. “This is a great opportunity to have a direct effect as far as training goes,” he said. “I’m really excited about the opportunity.” Consultant for Levy as well as Struble’s mentor, Prettyman has a stake in the project. “Neil has put himself on the line with a financial investment and a ton of time,” he said. “And Jeremiah has chosen to come home and work with young athletes of our area. So the question is ‘is the community going to step up?’ There’s nothing like this in our area.” Levy, Prettyman and Struble host an open house from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 17 at the gym at 213 Aspen Garden Way, across from Burger King. The open house features exercise demonstrations at 9 and 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. For information, check the website at highaltitudebaseball.com or call 686-5568.

MAIN STREET PROGRAM: Maybe you were one of the 300-plus community members who attended the Main Street Community Assessment events on March 31 and April 1. The events focused on a community view of the future of Woodland Park’s “Main Street.” The city will receive a full report

in a few weeks, which will be shared with the community. The next step will be to seek a Main Street designation, which could create many opportunities for Woodland Park. The DDA was one of the many community groups involved in the assessment process. If you’re interested in knowing more about the Main Street Program, contact the Office of Economic & Downtown Development.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor: As I’ve indicated in the past, I’ve had problems with the current assessor. In 2012 I foreclosed on 47 acres on the northeast side of Woodland Park. The property was valued in by the assessor at that time for $235,000. In 2013, I received notices of revaluation on that property which suddenly showed that the value had increased nearly 400 percent to $933,000. Outrageous. How could the value jump from $235,000 to $933,000, when all that happened to it was a foreclosure of an existing loan of only $130,000? That was essentially what I paid for the property: $130,000. Obviously, I’d just made the deal of a lifetime, huh? I’d just increased my $130,000 by seven times. I should take my wife on a world cruise. I knew the property had no such value. A foreclosure is an open auction. Anyone can

come in a bid. Nobody did. How could an assessor be so incompetent as to flatly ignore the public records when trying to establish a value? More than that, how could she arbitrarily raise a valuation without any basis whatsoever? So I started digging into values. Did you know that according to the assessor’s own website, a foreclosing lender has the right to the same valuation the prior owner had? So, again the question came up: Why was I looking at a value of $933,000 when the previous year had been only $235,000 and I had paid only $130,000? And all this was in violation of the statement made on the assessor’s own website? I confronted the assessor’s office with the facts and learned that nobody there had ever read their own website. They were all ignorant of what it flatly stated. Naturally I blew like Vesuvius. They then read their website and agreed with me. My as-

sessed value was quickly dropped to $235,000. This is how Betty Clark-Wine, the current assessor, runs her department. Must we accept that blinding ignorance? It begs the question: Who can we trust? I’ve known other people I wouldn’t trust with a dime. They weren’t often assessors. As I’ve written in the past, we don’t need an assessor who lets her personal prejudices affect her work. I’ve heard other examples of how Whining Wine uses her office to raise values on other people and penalize those who cross her. My foster son, Jeff Rucker, a llama rancher by Evergreen Station, ran into the same problem with a 40-acre parcel he bought near his ranch for extra pasture. They revalued his property by tens of thousands over what he paid. They had again failed to read their own website, which stated that land with Decreed water rights was automatically zoned agriculture. When did failure to read

your own instruction manual become a laudable achievement? Apparently it’s the way to success for Wine. I’m tired of shoddy performance hawked as something special. I’m tired to being singled out for “special” treatment. It’s time for Violet Watt, who is a person with common sense and the qualifications and attitude to do the job in a style equal to its importance.Wine should be put away somewhere safe, where she can do the least damage to others. Let’s get a real assessor, one who respects her fellow employees, not to mention the taxpayers who are her real bosses. We don’t need taxing authorities eager to exceed their duties, as the IRS seems to have done to conservatives, no matter what Lois Lerner won’t admit. Sincerely, Kenneth C. Bauer Woodland Park

Panthers hold their own against defending state champ Cheyenne Mountain Woodland Park girls’ soccer team lost 8-0 in first round of state playoffs By Danny Summers

dsummers@colorado communitymedia.com It was David vs. Goliath on the Cheyenne Mountain soccer field on May 7. And while Goliath won this match, David walked away with his head held high. In simpler terms, the Woodland Park girls’ soccer team held its own against the defending state champions in a Class 4A first-round game. “We hung with them,” said Woodland Park coach Andrew Pappadakis. “This is the best game our girls have played all season. No one had a bad game. They played whistle to whistle.” The Panthers (9-7) were on the short end of an 8-0 score, but the game went the full 80 minutes. Woodland Park, the No. 32 seed in the 32-team tournament, held No. 1 Cheyenne Mountain (14-0-2) to five goals in the first half while the Indians played all of their starters. “We spent two days at practice knowing we had Cheyenne and working on the things they do,” Pappadakis said. “Everything they did we practiced first. There were no surprises.” Woodland Park had few scoring opportunities and no shots on goal. Despite being down early - Cheyenne Mountain

Woodland Park junior Morghan Sieracki, in green, goes up for a loose ball with Cheyenne Mountain’s Summer Halle during a first round playoff game on May 7. The Panthers lost 8-0. scored 32 seconds into the match — the Panthers kept their focus on defense and made the Indians work the ball around before getting a decent shot. The Panthers’ defense included Jenny Sells, Cheyenne Wilcox, Caitlin Thorne, Jayne Welch and Laura Mauricio.

Pappadakis was especially proud of his two goaltenders; sophomore Samantha Self (who played the first half) and senior Becky Seib (who played all of the second half) “Both goalies came up huge with some really wonderful saves,” he said.

All of Cheyenne Mountain’s players are involved in a club program, while just a few of Woodland Park’s players travel down Ute Pass to play on a club team. “That makes a difference,” Pappadakis said. Woodland Park enjoyed a successful all-around season, despite losing several players to injury; junior Katie Stunkard, freshman Lexi Rees and senior Michaele McDonough to name a few. The Panthers should return a solid group of players for the 2015 season, led by Sells (15 goals, 9 assists), Morghan Sieracki (11, 8), Thorne (4, 1), Self, Wilcox, Welch and freshman Amelia Stein. With Rees and Stunkard healthy next season there’s appears to be no reason why Woodland Park should not compete for a league title and a third-consecutive playoff appearance. The revamped Metro League will include newcomers Canon City and traditional 3A state-power The Classical Academy. “I think we can win league next year,” Pappadakis said. “I think we can beat TCA. “But the girls have to commit. They have to play in the summer. If we do that we will win league and we will get a higher seed than 25, which is what Mesa Ridge got this year for winning our league.” Woodland Park was the third-place team from the Metro League this season. League champ Mesa Ridge and secondplace Coronado both lost their firstround playoff games.

Woodland Park qualifies four for state track meet David Higgins advances to state with electrifying 800 run at Metro League finals By Danny Summers

d s u m m e r s @ c o l o ra d o communitymedia.com Four Woodland Park High School athletes will compete in this week’s Class 4A state track and field meet, May 15-17 at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood. But none took as adventurous route as David Higgins, who will be running in the 800. Also advancing to the state tournament are Randy Westfall (shot put and discus), Hayden Erickson (shot put) and Jonathan Hinton (110 hurdles). Higgins overcame three separate breaks of the big toe - broken in three places

Woodland Park senior David Higgins qualified for the Class 4A state track meet in the 800. He set the school record in the event at the Metro League Championships May 10 at Garry Berry Stadium. - on his left foot. Because of that, he’s worn his Asics heavy training shoes to compete this season, rather than traditional spikes. And to add icing on top of the cake, Higgins didn’t qualify until his final race of the regular season; the finals in the Metro League Championships at Garry

Berry Stadium on May 10 Higgins, a senior, ran toe-to-toe with Bailey Roth, Coronado’s superstar allAmerican. Roth won the race with a time of 1 minute, 57.14 seconds. Higgins finished second with a 1:58.37, which places him 12th in the state rankings. The time not only gave

Ross was the state champion that year in the 800 and 1600. “I ran like it was the end of the world,” said Higgins, who is a black belt in karate. “Coach (Ron Peyton) positioned people at each mark

so I knew what my time was and where I was at.” Peyton was elated that Higgins was able to pull off his impressive accomplishment in such a dramatic way. “He just worked so hard,” Peyton said. “I would like to see what he could do if he wore spikes. If he wore spikes Bailey Roth would be chasing him.” Higgins said he will have to get his broken toe surgically reset after the season. “Maybe I will wear spikes at state since it will be my last high school race of my career,” Higgins said with a smile. Westfall is headed to state for the first time. He is ranked 9th in the discus (153 feet, 4 inches) and 6th in the shot put (50-7). He won both events at the Metro League Championships. Erickson finished second in the shot put at the Metro League Champion-

ships. He is ranked 7th (506) in state. He is making his second trip to the state meet. Hinton will be trying to win a state title in the 110 hurdles, where is ranked 15th (15.58). “I went to state in wrestling so I’m kind of used to it,” Hinton said. “I had to deal with all those emotions with wrestling. It’s a big deal, but I think I can handle it. I just need to calm down and do my thing.” Hinton was ranked as high as eighth this year in the 110 hurdles. His best time came at the Chaffee County Invite. Hinton credits much of his success to Woodland Park hurdles coach Dan Makris. “I was real sloppy with my trail leg,” Hinton said. “I wasn’t quick enough. “He put me through a couple of things it helped a lot.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor: In response to Mr. Kenneth C. Bauer’s letter to the editor, since Mr. Bauer admitted that he was one of those behind the effort to remove me from the ballot, I want to thank him for giving me the opportunity to get out and meet so many of my constituents. I truly was an assessor-atwork meeting people, telling them about the office of the Assessor, and in some cases answering questions about their tax bills and the valuation process. Gathering signatures was not easy, but neither is the assessor’s job. Long hours and hard work for the taxpayers is rewarding and, as I told voters in 2010, I do not want a ‘cush’ job. The petition process has an ‘up’ side - it puts the elected official in front of the voter with a chance to answer questions and tell them how much their willingness to give the voters a choice is appreciated. I am disappointed that Mr. Bauer insulted the voters who signed my petition by calling them “uninformed.” Those voters were informed. They were happy to

put me on the ballot and, they are happy to have a choice, instead of having the choice made for them. Mr. Bauer is right when he says that when a candidate is rejected by nearly 80 percent of her own party something is seriously wrong. That wrong was definitely at the Assembly. People are still coming forward to tell me what they heard both at, and in the months leading up to, the Assembly. I am still shocked by the lies and innuendos. I am very disappointed that some people chose to believe them without further inquiry or investigation. I sent letters to almost all of the delegates detailing my education, qualifications, and experience. I also provided information as to what had been accomplished in the Assessor’s office over the past few years. We, yes WE, because it is a team effort, work very hard for our employers, the taxpayers. I held meetings and posted my telephone number, email address, and website. Not one delegate contacted me seeking more information or seeking to

get answers to questions that obviously needed to be asked and, it seems that many of those 80 percent could have used ‘the other side of the story.’ Some of the lies amount to allegations of collusion and corruption, which is criminal. If anyone believes these lies to be true, they owe it to themselves and the public to submit the evidence and report corrupt activities to the Colorado Division of Property Taxation and the Colorado Attorney General. Colorado law contains a number of citations relating to ethics and public servants (see § 18-8-301, C.R.S.). I have been known among my peers as an ‘information hound’ because I seek information, sometimes a lot of information, but that is because I want to make the best decision possible. Before someone is tried and convicted in the court of public opinion, wouldn’t it be preferable to get the facts before passing sentence? Wouldn’t you rather have someone like me on your jury than someone who listens to hearsay, rumors, or gossip? The sad thing is that many people think

this is “just politics.” Innuendos, lies, and gossip have no place in campaigns and should never be acceptable. As to Mr. Bauer’s assertion that I am only in this office for the job and the paycheck, Mr. Bauer is entitled to his opinion, but nothing could be further from the truth. This job is not about power, position, and prestige. It is about serving and solving problems. It is all about being fair and equitable to taxpayers. All who contact my office are treated with dignity, respect, and courtesy - even when we are not shown the same. We are listeners, teachers, researchers, investigators, and more. We are public servants. Please look at my background, qualifications and experience at www.BettyForTeller.com. I am pleased to answer any questions and discuss any concerns. My telephone number is 510-0567. Sincerely, Betty Clark-Wine Teller County Assessor
