Brennan is a force for AARF By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews.com A dog’s best friend, Dottie Brennan is forever finding homes for the lost, the abandoned and the starved. Cheerleader and worker bee for the Adoptable Animal Rescue Force, AARF, Brennan has a wealth of stories to tell, each loaded with ulterior motive. Her latest one is about two Anatole shepherds, brother and sister, 7 years old. They’ve been together all their lives and

AARF is dedicated to finding a home for the team, Bear and Bronco. “They’re loveable, friendly, love people,” she said. “They’re just gorgeous. And they’re both current on their shots” However, Bear and Bronco need a home with a large fenced area. “We want to give the dogs to someone who will appreciate them,” Brennan said. “They just sit and look at you and those eyes, you melt.” While Brennan is tiny, may look a little frail, she’s a tiger when it comes to being an adoptable force in the dog world. “We’ve

just hit the 300 mark, of taking in dogs and finding homes for them,” she said, referring to 2013 through the first half of November. “We’ve had a remarkable year.” Brennan, along with 20 volunteers with the nonprofit organization, has acquired a regional reputation. “People call us from all over the area,” she said. “If the dogs are going to be put down, we’ll take them.” As the dogs keep coming, now including

It was a case of not-enough-information when it came time for Woodland Park City Council to approve the city’s new building fee structure at its Nov. 21 regular meeting. Because Teller County pulled out of an agreement to provide building services in Woodland Park, the city has been working with the Pikes Peak Regional Building Department to create a building department in city hall. The new fee-structure resolution, which was first presented at the Nov. 7 council meeting, has the same fees for residential properties as El Paso County, or about 0ne-third of what Teller County Woodland Park Mayor David Turley, right, a big-time supporter of the Woodland Park High School softball team, was charged. However, the fees for commercial unable to make it to the last few games of the season, including the playoffs, so team members came to him instead properties are a bit more complex. That complexity presented too many at the Nov. 21 city council meeting. Pictured from left are junior Lexie Comer holding a team photo, senior Kellee questions for some councilmembers, inSuggs with the winning game ball from the team’s last regular season game against Widefield, head coach Dale cluding Mayor Pro Tem Eric Smith, who is Huntington and senior Mallorie Trichell with the roster and season highlights. Photo by Norma Engelberg developing the Trail Ridge Apartment complex said that despite an assurance at the POSTAL ADDRESS last meeting that commercial fees would be lower than what Teller County charged Printed on recycled it looks as if his fees will be substantially newsprint. Please more. He wanted comparisons between recycle this copy. his fees under the new structure and the old structure. He also wanted comparisons for the new Tractor Supply Co. facility and for a single-family dwelling.

The news of two miners who were killed and 20 others injured in Ouray on Nov. 17 sent shockwaves through the state. The blast caused people to wonder how such a mining catastrophe could occur in 2013. Within hours, the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration were on site at the Revenue-Virginius Mine, located in southwestern Colorado. The hard rock mine is closed while the investigation continues. “We feel great sympathy for the people in Ouray,” said Jane Mannon, manager of community affairs for the Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mining Company. “Anytime we get a report of something like this we always try to learn from it” With 508 employees, CC&V is the largest mining operation in the state. About 250,000 ounces of gold is taken from the open pit mine annually. The risks associated with open pit mining are considerably less than they were 100 years ago when miners were lowered into shafts; sometimes up to 1,000 feet. “A mining disaster like the one in Ouray causes people to refocus,” Mannon said. “You think about `Can I go home safely tonight.’ “Our No. 1 concern is safety and we take that very seriously.” CC&V employees are required to take an 8-hour refresher course on safety every year. When a mining employee is first hired, they are required to take 24 hours of safety training. “Slips, trips and falls are the majority of the things we deal with,” Mannon said. CC&V has been in business since 1976. The last fatal accident at the mine was on March 23, 1993, when Harry Marsteiner was killed on a truck in the pit. “My dad Harry Marsteiner was driving a Euclid Water truck. It looked like one of their 85 ton haul trucks but modified to haul water to wet the roads to keep dust down. He was driving the truck down into the Cresson Pit when the brakes failed. All attempts to stop the truck failed, so he called in on the radio that he would have to jump from the truck. The cab sits about 18 feet of the ground with a small walkway around it. He had to exit the cab, make his

Council tackles aquatic center project Gives guidance on possible lodging tax ballot question By Norma Engelberg Contributing writer Feeling that it’s time to do something to get what 80 percent of the Woodland Park community wants, an aquatic center, Woodland Park City Council met in a public work session before its regular Nov. 21 meeting to hammer out a strategy. This was part of a discussion on how the city should use $541,000 in excess of the money reserved for emergencies. First, however, they discussed a proposal from City Manager David Buttery to ask voters to alter how lodging tax revenues can be used. Currently revenues from the 5.7 percent tax, which was approved by voters in 2002, are used for beautification and streetscape improvements and funding one building and grounds employee. Buttery said that in recent years revenues from the tax have consistently exceeded expenditures by an average of $20,000. He added that the tax is working the way it was intended but that there is more to creating a viable economy than just beautification and streetscape improvements. He is proposing that council sponsors an initiative on the April 2014 municipal election ballot to use some of the revenue to fund “activities associated with economic enhancement and sustainability to include … advertising, marketing and promotion of the city…” Councilmembers agreed to let him and the city attorney craft ballot language on this item to bring to a future council meeting. On the aquatic center issue, Mayor Dave Turley said it was time for council to

Woodland Park Mayor David Turley, well known for supporting local youth sports, holds a photo of the Woodland Park High School softball team in his right hand and the , winning game ball from the team’s last regular season game against Widefield, signed by the entire team, in his left hand. In front of him is the team roster and highlights from this year’s 16-5 season. Team members and coaches presented these items to him at the Nov. 21 city council meeting. Photo by Norma Engelberg have a candid talk about the proposal. “If we want to get this done, it’s time to roll up our sleeves and move ahead,” he said. “Let’s look each other in the eye and talk about how we really feel.” Councilmembers all agreed that the aquatic center is something most of the community wants but the hold-up has always been how to pay for it. They also agreed that “paying for it” will likely re-

quire a sales-tax increase. Councilmember Carrol Harvey proposed creating a taskforce and spending money to determine exactly how much funding will be needed to build and maintain a center so that council can take specific numbers to the voters. Four years ago, voters strongly rejected a proposed 1 percent sales tax to fund a YMCA recreation center but Mayor Pro

Tem Eric Smith said the timing was off, the proposal didn’t have council backing and there was a lot of misinformation. “We have to get behind this effort and create community buy-in,” he said. “We need to get our ducks in a row, get the numbers together, ring doorbells and educate our community. If it still doesn’t happen, at least this time we will have given it our all.”

Maketa pledges law enforcement in Green Mountain Falls By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews.com With all the turmoil over the loss of the marshal’s department in Green Mountain Falls, El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa attempted to soothe rattled nerves at the board of trustees’ meeting on Nov. 19. “There’s been a lot of confusion about this but if a town does not have law enforcement, the sheriff is required to provide those services and respond to acts of crime,” Maketa said. In the past, sheriff’s deputies were only called in at the request of local law enforcement, Maketa said, “I don’t know if this timing is good or not; I’m going to leave it up to you and your town to make the decision.” Before eliminating the marshal’s position, the liaison trustee, Howard Price, gained assurance from Maketa that his deputies would pick up the slack. Last month, Mayor Lorrie Worthey and the board voted 7-0 to offer a $12,000 severance package to Marshal Tim Bradley, which he accepted before leaving his position. Over the past few weeks, the sheriff’s

deputies have established a presence in town. “That doesn’t account for the unmarked units up here,” Maketa said. “Our goal is to support the town in whatever direction they want to go.” For now, the deputies are not concerned about working from a substation in Green Mountain Falls. “It’s not necessary,” Maketa said, adding that when the new town hall is built, the discussion about a substation could resume. Maketa urged the audience to call him, or his office, about any concerns. “You don’t necessarily have to believe it’s a crime; if you see something you’re uncomfortable with or suspicious, call us and let us determine,” he said. From the audience, Molly Stevens asked about early-morning patrols at Ute Pass Elementary, a service provided by Bradley. Maketa replied that his deputies would be aware of Bradley’s prior commitment to the school children; Manitou Springs has also been providing school-resource services, Maketa said. “That’s going to continue; I can’t guarantee the deputies will be there every day but that will be one of our targeted things, to have a presence at the school,” he said.

Barnes expected back in Green Mountain Falls By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews.com The investigation into the attack on Green Mountain Falls’ Sgt. Susan Barnes is ongoing. Barnes was attacked in the wee hours of Nov. 2 while on duty. To date, investigating agency, El Paso County Sheriff’s Office has released no further information about the case. Barnes, who suffered a broken collar-

bone and injuries to the arms and legs, is expected back at work within a few weeks. In a clear-the-air interview conducted by Howard Price and Mac Pitrone, the marshal’s trustee and backup trustee, respectively, Barnes talked about her concerns now that Police Chief/Marshal Tim Bradley’s position had been eliminated. Since August Barnes said she and Bradley felt that both of them would be fired by the board. “Tim told me to write a letter of

resignation, even though I’ll probably still get fired,” Barnes said. “Bradley was never told that,” Price said. The ensuing discussion was then centered around a letter written by Bradley June 18 and posted on the Barnes personal Facebook page of Mayor Lorrie Worthey in the middle of

November. In the letter, Bradley writes that Barnes had resigned but later amended that she had not resigned. The upshot of the interview with Barnes was that she would have her job as a deputy but her hours would be cut from 30 a week to 29, as of Jan. 1, so that she would not receive benefits. Later that day at the board meeting, Barnes refuted some of what Bradley had written.

CANCER (Jun 21 to Jul 22) A change in plans could make it tough to keep a commitment. But stay with it. You’ll get an A-plus for making the effort to do what’s right and not taking the easy way out by running off. LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22) The Lion’s enthusiasm for a workplace policy review is admirable. But be sure you know who is really behind the resistance to change before pointing your finger at the wrong person. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) You can expect to have to do a lot of work through midweek. Devote the rest of the week to checking your holiday plans in case some need to be adjusted to accommodate changes. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) Try to avoid signing on the dotted line in the early part of the week. You need time to study issues that weren’t fully explored. Later in the week might be more favorable for decisionmaking. SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) A new development could snarl travel schedules or other holiday-linked projects. Some flexibility might be called for to deal with the problems before they get too far out of hand. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Relatives seek your advice on a matter you’d rather not be involved in. If so, use that sage Sagittarian tact to decline the “offer,” so that no one’s feelings are needlessly hurt. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) A shift in planning direction might help you speed up your progress toward achieving that long-planned goal. Trusted colleagues are ready to offer some valuable support. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) An unexpected demand for settlement of an old loan could create some pre-holiday anxiety. But you might not really owe it. Check your records thoroughly before remitting payment. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) It’s a good time to get into the social swim and enjoy some well-earned fun and games with those closest to you before you have to resume more serious activities next week.

Make new friends, they are silver, gold If wealth makes many friends, Colorado is just about the most popular state in the nation. The state’s mineral wealth is legendary. According to WesternMiningHistory. com, Colorado ranks second among the gold-producing states. Nearly 75 percent of the nation’s all-time gold production yields occurred in only five states. In order of dominance, those states are California, Colorado, South Dakota, Alaska and Nevada. “Since 1859, Colorado Mines have produced about 45 million ounces of Gold,” says the Mineral Information Institute (MII). “Colorado’s largest gold discovery was the Cripple Creek district in 1893. This one district alone produced over 22 million ounces of gold. The Cripple Creek district contains the sole remaining gold mine in Colorado with an estimated annual production of 240,000 ounces in 2000.” In addition, MII notes that Colorado is also blessed by Molybdenum, Uranium, aquamarine, rhodochrosite, beryl and even diamond gemstones. “Diamonds were discovered in 1975.

The Kelsey Lake Mine in Larimer County began commercial production in 1996 and quickly produced some outstanding gem quality diamonds — as large as 14 and 26 carats,” says MII’s Colorado state mineral production summary. But you must not forget about silver. “From 1887 to 1893 Aspen was the richest silver mining area in the US. It boasted six newspapers, two banks, a water works, telephone service and the distinction of being one of the first towns in America to run on electricity,” writes Bruce Caughey and Dean Winstanley in their 1989 book, The Colorado Guide. “During this heyday, Jerome Wheeler built the Wheeler Opera House and the magnificent Aspen

showpiece, the Hotel Jerome. The hotel opened on Thanksgiving eve 1889 with Aspen’s biggest social event to date. Guests came from as far away as Europe; and for perhaps the first time in their lives, miners spruced up with starched shirts, top hats – and bay rum. This soiree helped bring Aspen into the national spotlight, but the attention was short lived.” By 1893, silver had been “demonetized” and prices for the metal fell like a rock. “Within a week the mines had closed and people were moving out. The Smuggler II Mine on Smuggler Mountain managed to stay open for while longer, and in 1894 produced the largest silver nugget in the world weighing in at over a ton. But not even the richest Silver mine in the world could afford to stay open,” wrote Caughey and Winstanley. The claim to being the largest silver nugget in the world is disputed but a number of big silver chunks were pulled out of Aspen mines including a 1840-pound beauty from the Mollie Gibson in 1893 and the aforementioned nugget from the Smuggler II weighing in at 2,054 pounds. The nugget from the Smuggler was 93

percent pure silver. (A 2,750 pound silver monster was reportedly pulled from a mine in Sonora, Mexico in 1821 and was later “appropriated” by the Spanish Government.) The largest gold nugget in Colorado is claimed by folks from the Breckenridge area in the form of “Tom’s Baby.” Tom Groves, according to lore, strolled into town one July day in 1887, cradling a 13.5-pound gold nugget, wrapped in blanket. The nugget was sent on to Denver and appeared and disappeared several times over the next 85 years, but the nugget (minus nearly five pounds) resurfaced in 1972 when the State Historical Museum discovered “Tom’s Baby” among gold specimens deposited in a Denver bank in 1926. One other important mineral of note found in Colorado is marble. The largest single slab of marble ever found weighed 100.8 tons and was quarried in Yule, Colorado. A portion of that slab was cut for use as the copingstone at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

Six degrees of John F. Kennedy — and me You know that old six degrees of separation theory? It applies to me and former President John F. Kennedy. I intend to prove that JFK and I are joined at the hip in ways that can only be defined as coincidence or happenstance. Nov. 22 marked the 50th anniversary of the death of Kennedy. He was assassinated in Dallas by Lee Harvey Oswald while riding in an open motorcade. Kennedy and the rest of his family have always fascinated me. There was a time when the Kennedy clan was like American royalty. Many folks from all over the world are still fascinated by the family. I was born the year Kennedy died. In a strange way I always felt a connection to him for that very reason. Redlands, where I grew up in southern California, has maintained an eternal flame in honor of JFK these many years. Every time I passed by that monument along Redlands Boulevard I thought about the meaning of Kennedy’s words that are etched on a sign near the flame; “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” It

Seems things have changed a bit in that regard in recent years. I became even more intrigued with JFK when I moved to Colorado in 2001 and discovered something new about our 35th president. The day I was born, June 5, 1963, at then Sandia Base in Albuquerque, Kennedy was 275 miles away in Colorado Springs. June 5, 1963 was a busy day for JFK. He made one of his patented whirlwind trips, going from Colorado Springs to New Mexico and then onto Texas for he evening. He arrived at Peterson Field the morning of June 5 at 9:15 a.m. in a silver Boeing 707.

He was wearing a blue suit, light blue silk tie, and carrying a grey hat. Also with him was his custom built 1961 Lincoln Continental four door convertible limousine. JFK was flown by marine helicopter (with his limousine) to the Air Force Academy, where he landed at 9:45 a.m. and was driven around Falcon Stadium twice as the crowd hollered and waved. He gave a 15-minute speech to the 493 graduates and a crowd of more than 30,000. He handed out diplomas to the top 25 graduates. He was also presented with an honorary Academy diploma. “You are graduating into the most demanding career of any officer corp. in the history of this country,” Kennedy told the Cadets. After finishing his speech, he rode in his limousine - the same car he was assassinated in five-and-a-half months later — down Nevada Ave on his way to ENT Air Force Base to get a briefing at NORAD (its home at the time). He was accompanied by a 12-car motorcade and two press buses. An honor guard of 800 soldiers from Fort Carson lined the route.

It had been reported that crowds could get a glimpse of the president at the corner of Nevada and Platte. More than 1,000 onlookers gathered near the statue of General Palmer to get a look at the President as JFK rode by and waved. He was scheduled to pass by at 11:35 a.m., but arrived shortly before noon. JFK was driven back to Peterson at 1:10 p.m. and then flew by fighter jet to White Sands Missile Base in White Sands, New Mexico (about 200 miles from Albuquerque). He watched missiles being launched, and then flew to El Paso Texas, for an engagement that evening. While I was only a mere few hours old at the time, this was the start of my 50-year connection to Kennedy. As mentioned earlier, I was born at Sandia Base. My dad, Jack, was stationed there. I lived there for only a few months while he was finishing his stint in the army. My mother, Ruth, still tells the story of

A rocky tale of gravel Perhaps you know about the big gravel pit at Midland, near the entrance to Mueller State Park. Did you know a lot of it was taken to Kansas and Nebraska? That disintegrated granite found in the slopes of Pikes Peak was the best ballast in the world and the entire Rock Island system used it! Starting in the 1900s, the Rock Island railroad started buying it to use in their track. Ballast is the rocky material you see under the railroad’s ties. It helps cushion the track, as well as help keep the track dry after rains and snows. This was a real problem out in the Great Plains. A certain Harry Mudge, who worked in the offices of the Colorado Midland for many of its early years, went to work the Rock Island. He became a vice president in their operating department. He returned to the area in the early 1900s looking for rocks! A special train of four cars bearing Mudge and the other Rock Island officials left Colorado Springs for a trip up Ute Pass. Familiar with the area, Mudge probably pointed out areas where the gravel was quite visible. A few days later they returned to Chicago with their answer. After returning to Chicago, contracts were drawn up for the railroad’s purchase of the red gravel. Several quarries were to be developed. One was just below Cascade, another east of Divide and the one at Midland. The Rock Island sent empty cars to Colorado Springs, which was taken to the quarries. The one at Cascade only

lasted a few months, but the other two were the real treasures. The stone was hauled as far east as Illinois, but most was in Iowa and Kansas. The Rock Island bought the gravel until 1949 when the Midland Terminal closed. They bought hundreds of cars of the red rock every year. The railroad is for the most part still there, but under different names. The Rock island closed in the 1970s. The science of railroads has changed, and this rock has been replaced with better kinds. The Union Pacific likes rocks from the mountains west of Cheyenne. The Santa Fe bought waste rock from the steel mill in Pueblo and even owned an ancient dormant volcano in New Mexico! The pit at Midland was reopened a few years ago. Teller County even gets rock from a spot on County 67 near the old tunnel a few miles down the road. The rock finds a lot of use. It has been used to fill holes from last summer’s rain.

How to survive the feeding frenzy If you’re a regular reader of this column … and if you are, thank you for that … you’ve probably been anticipating my yearly column on how to survive the annual holiday eating frenzy. So as not to disappoint you, here’s my 2013 offering on how you can get into your favorite pair of jeans on January 2nd without having to grease them with petroleum jelly. Gleaned from three of my favorite “goto” health and fitness websites … WebMD, Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Heart Clinic, here are the experts’ top ten tips for dealing with the Thanksgiving to New Year’s food bonanza, where the temptations are unrelenting. Get moving. Aerobic exercise is the key to burning those excess calories, so if you’re not exercising, get going. And if you are already hitting the gym, increase the duration and frequency of your workouts. Never arrive at a holiday food event hungry. A nutritious snack beforehand can help you face the temptation of the

predictable mountain of sumptuous goodies. Focus on socializing. Don’t hangout at the buffet table. Focus your attention on making conversation, instead of stuffing your face. Conversation is calorie-free. Limit your alcohol. Minimizing your alcohol consumption not only reduces your caloric intake … it leads to better control over your food choices and portions. Outsmart the buffet. Take the smallest plate available, don’t stack your food and limit yourself to one trip to the buffet.

Beware of sauces and dips. Mind your manners and your portions. At a sit-down affair, graciously sample all foods; however, you don’t have to lick your plate clean to demonstrate your appreciation to your host. Be choosy about sweets. When it comes time to partake of dessert, be very selective. A WebMD expert has this personal rule, “If it’s going to have calories, it has to be chocolate.” Pace yourself. Holiday events are not Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. Graze don’t devour. Say No Politely. Many times you feel forced to eat food because the host keeps putting it in front of you. Learn to say, “No thank you, I’ve had enough. Everything was delicious.” Plan for indulgence. If you’re going to indulge in holiday treats or over indulge at a party, ask yourself what you’re willing to give up in exchange. You can cut back on calories a couple of days before or you can

spent some extra time in the gym. And finally, here are a couple of tidbits from yours truly: Get adequate sleep. Chronic sleep loss can affect your metabolism and influence your sense of hunger. Being tired, also, affects your ability to resists food temptations. Schedule time for yourself and exercise during this hectic season. Prioritize the holiday celebrations you’re invited and only attend those that are really important to you. Be in control of, instead of being controlled by, this year’s holiday feeding frenzy. Perhaps, you’ll be able to get into your favorite pair of jeans on January 2nd.

watched both “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” We also read the book. For the final part of the unit, our class was donated chocolate by the Cripple Creek Candy Store and the students paired up to make their own candy. After the candy was made, the students invited other freshmen and sophomore Literacy Labs to try out the candy. They rated the candy so we could declare a winner. The official Willie Wonka Candy Creator for 2013 is Deja Nimsey and Brooke Warbington! Congratulations on creating a very tasty treat for us to enjoy. Mrs. Seilonen plans to do this unit every year from now on. This unit helped the students with skills in comparing and contrasting and tested their abilities in observation. A very special thank you goes out to

the Cripple Creek Candy store for their donation of chocolate and the use of their supplies to allow our students the experience of becoming a chocolatier — Willie Wonka style!

Candy making is fun for students of any age The Success Highways course is a class that all eighth-grade students take at Cripple Creek – Victor Junior High School. The purpose of this course is to get students thinking about their future. The course begins with students setting short-term goals and discussing the specific steps and supports they will need in order to achieve success. We then spend some time discussing long-term goals, and students begin to brainstorm what career choices may be of interest to them. This is followed by the students completing a research project on their potential career choices and the steps they need to take in order to succeed in their area of interest. Some of the careers chosen by this semester’s eighth grade class were: Surgeon, coffee shop owner, music producer, author, tattoo artist and zookeeper. This project was engaging for the class because students had the opportunity to share their passions with each other and discover just how attainable their careers goals are. Dec. 16-19 is the last week before winter break. It is also the end of second quarter and first semester. I would like to take this opportunity to express my concern of pulling your child early during this time. Final exams are now 20 percent of the

the time she “saw the back of Kennedy’s head” while waiting for him to pass by in his limousine when he was on a visit to Sandia Base in December 1962. She was three months pregnant with me at the time. “I bent over because I was feeling sick, looked up, and Kennedy had already passed by,” my mother says. “I couldn’t believe I missed seeing his face. I’ll never forget that.” We moved to Las Vegas (Nevada) in September 1963 (for only a month). Kennedy was in Las Vegas that September, speaking to a group on the conservation of natural resources. From there, we moved to Southern California, where I spent most of my life until moving to Colorado Springs. We were living in Montclair in 1968 when Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles at the Ambassador Hotel - 30 miles to the west. It happened shortly after midnight on - you guessed it - June 5. When I was 7 years old, I moved with my parents and sister, Sherry, to the quaint little town of Redlands. Along Redlands Blvd. — a pretty stretch of highway with

semester grade, so it is critical for students to be here to take their finals. There will not be pre-testing. Get administrative approval two weeks before the break in order to check your student out early. If your child misses a final exam, they will be able to make it up in January when we return to school. On Dec. 19 is the Pioneer Pride Holiday Celebration in the high school cafetorium from 4 to 6:15 p.m. This is geared for the junior high and high school students, where Toys for Tots is more for younger children and will be held Dec. 12 in the elementary school.

UPCOMING ACTIVITIES:

Nov. 27 — No school –Thanksgiving break Dec. 3 — High school boys and girls basketball at Colorado Springs School 4 p.m. Dec. 6 — High school boys and girls basketball at Burro classic-South Park to be announced.

a view of the San Bernardino Mountains on one side and lush orange groves and rolling hills on the other — is the eternal flame that still burns bright 24/7. I graduated from Long Beach State in 1985 and made my first trip to the east coast with three friends. We saw baseball games in New York, Boston, Baltimore and Philadelphia. We also visited Arlington National Cemetery. I remember that long walk to JFK’s grave and the eternal flame that burns next to it. If you have ever been in the cemetery, you know that it is a scared place. People honor our fallen heroes by keeping their talk to a low whisper. By the time I got to Kennedy’s resting place I was overcome with emotion. Over the last 28 years, I have taken several trips to Washington D.C., and each time visited Arlington National Cemetery. I’ve taken my now 19-year-old son, Garrison, to Kennedy’s grave on several occasions. Maybe my connection with JFK is just a series of coincidences, or maybe it all means something much more than I will ever know. Regardless, I think it’s kind of cool. You can watch footage of JFK’s trip to Colorado Springs by going to www.youtube.com and typing in Kennedy, Colorado Springs, June 5.

Collecting Barbie dolls still brings me joy Sometimes I wish I could go back to the days when I was 6 and my biggest problem was what kind of dress to put on Barbie or whether or not I had enough Legos to build a fort. — Unknown It began with a Skipper … I would consider myself a collector – not a hoarder, mind you – a real collector. I have an owl collection, an ever-growing coffee-cup collection, a big collection of books and one huge doll collection. My favorite dolls in this collection are my vintage Barbie dolls – hands down. I guess you could say, “I’m into Barbie!” I love to buy these dolls and find cute (sometimes vintage) outfits for them to wear. Finding them can be costly — but it’s worth it to me because they bring me joy. Midge and Barbie. The most-prized part of my Barbie collection are the early Barbie dolls: Barbie’s bestie, Midge; of course, Barbie’s BF, Ken; and Barbie’s little sister, Skipper. My passion for Barbie started as a child. My first Barbie doll that I got in the 1970s was Ballerina Barbie. I also had the ’70s Barbie and Superstar Barbie. In the 1980s, I added Western Barbie and Parisian Barbie to my collection. I had her dream house, too. When I was about 14 – about the time my interest in boys took root – I sold all my Barbies at a garage sale. It was a decision I deeply regretted later in life. When I was in my late 20s, I started buying all my childhood dolls back. Thanks to eBay. But my greatest find… the one that ignited my old flame for Barbie took place in the late 1990s while shopping in Omaha’s Old Market. I was in a little vintage clothes shop, sifting through 1960s garments, when I spied a glass case. One item in particular – a small doll in a red bathing suit – caught my eye. I peered at her little face, her eyes looking to the side. It was Skipper from the

letter to the editor Dear Editor: I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in our community for the thoughts, prayers, goodwill, love, visits and help after my motorcycle accident last month. A special thanks to the unidentified lady who finally found me over the hill on Tarryall Road and went to get cell service to call 911, to Ray and Chris Tong, who comforted me as we awaited the arrival of the rescue squad, to the Ute Pass Regional Ambulance District (Lake George and Woodland Park) for their outstanding rescue efforts, and to the great staffs at Pikes Peak Regional and Penrose hospitals. The support to me during those difficult times (15 days in the hospitals, major surgery, Dr. David Hamilton is an amazing surgeon, and recovery at home) means so 4:01 PM much, and I am so thankful that all of you came together to help me pull through a

early ‘60s. I bought her for $60, an outrageous sum for me to be paying. But my Barbie love ran deep. To me — despite the temporary hardship that resulted from the purchase — the doll was a steal. She also came with a stand and a pink dress. I took her home and placed her on my bookshelf in my little apartment. Soon after, I began buying and receiving all sorts of Barbies. One of my favorites was a Marilyn Monroe-styled Barbie. And like most young women in the 1990s, I was infatuated with Marilyn. I had all things Marilyn from shirts to photographs. This doll. This Barbie. This Marilyn Monroe Barbie was perfect. Before I (and my wallet) knew it, I had a vintage collection of the blond bombshell Barbie. I’ve shown my collection to women’s clubs and groups. She’s always a hit. It shows Barbie’s universal appeal to women of all ages. Some might say that Barbie’s figure and appearance may taint the minds of young girls, I don’t agree. Barbie’s intention isn’t to be a poor role model. She’s just a fun doll to have around. Like an old friend, she’s always there for you.

near-death situation. I’ll miss someone for sure, but so much support from my good friends (oh so many, but special thanks to Robin, Cord, Lizzie, Bob, Linda, Neil, David, and Norm), our churches, city officials and staff, county officials and staff, the RE-2 school district, the kids and staffs at Columbine and Gateway Elementary, the middle school staff, and so many of the WPHS students and baseball players (love you guys; Keegan, you came so many times and it meant more than you will ever know) who came to visit me. The power of prayer and love cannot be overstated — it made a difference! Woodland Park and Teller County is a community that comes through when needed, and I will be forever grateful.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor: “Superintendent issues a plea” which appeared in the Oct. 30 edition of The Courier, penned by Pat Hill, caused me to think of another time when Teller County School District, RE-2, stood at the proverbial crossroads. It was 1963 and I had just been elected to the RE-2 board of education. As I recall, the population of Woodland Park was less than one thousand and the school district had an enrollment of 350 students. We had kids going to school in practically every basement in town. The district was growing and we desperately needed more classrooms — our bonding capacity was nil. We put mobile homes in the parking lot to keep the program going until we could build some schools. Many of Teller County properties were not on the tax rolls — we worked with the assessor to map the county and generate some revenue. After serving 18 years on the board and getting all the kids on what finally looked like a school campus, I felt nothing could keep us from what a public school system is intended to provide. We had a long way to go — you put the policy of RE-2 in your shirt

pocket. We developed a teacher salary schedule that we felt would attract good teachers. As board representative, I spent many Monday nights working with the teachers’ association to come up with a master agreement that addressed the particular circumstances of RE-2. These always friendly negotiations were a tremendously important learning experience for me for which I cherish to this day. Most of America’s institutions are suffering from lack of funding and we are just seeing the leading edge of our country’s deteriorating dilemma due to a dysfunctional national government that suffers from a strange political virus for which there is, seemingly, no cure. Take heart, Jed, we can do it — we’ll do what we have to do. My suggestion to the RE-2 administration and board of education is to prioritize! Courage and tough love will win the day. Cheers, Harlan E. Nimrod Dear Editor: The Teller County Clerk and Recorders Office certified the Coordinated Election Nov. 18. This is the first time in two years that Teller

County has had an election without the help of the secretary of state’s office. We had a 48.74 percent turn out for a total of 7,822 ballots. That is not a bad turnout considering we only had one local issue on the ballot, the RE-1 School Board. Also this is first election with our new mandates from HB13-1303. HB131303 requires all elections to be by mail-in ballot. With the new house bill we did have a lot of new expenses because of the increase in ballots and postage. We are required by law to send a ballot to every active and inactive voter in Teller County for a total of 16,047 ballots. However, even with the increase in postage and ballots, we had a huge savings compared to past elections, by not paying for contracted election officials. Because of the new house bill, all elections will be mail-in ballot; this includes the 2014 primary election and the 2014 general election. Please keep an eye on the Teller County website and our Teller County Facebook page for updates. Sincerely, Krystal Brown Teller County Clerk & Recorder Bottom of Form

T

he kids were excited. After all, it’s not every day they get to dissect a squid with their classmates. In a time when the study of science is more important than ever, youngsters slicing squids is nonetheless preparation for higher academic achievement. It’s also exciting. The squid caper is part of a five-week science afterschool program for Gateway Elementary and Woodland Park High schools. On Tuesday, 23 youngsters from second-to-fifth grades walk over to the high school for a science lesson. On a recent afternoon, Anna Sheps, a junior, introduced the study of cells, as a lead-in to the dissection piece. “Cells are all throughout your body,” Sheps said “Cells are one of the most important things in all of creation because they hold life.” Sheps piqued the kids’ curiosity with her lesson on the parts of a cell. “The membrane protects the cell from bad things, sort of like a police officer,” she said. “The membrane is an alarm system — if something bad gets in, the membrane will reject it.” Prepped for the dissection, the students got to work, with guidance from the high-school scientists who explained what was happening during the exercise “Kids love science, getting their hands into things,” said Jon Woods, fifth-grade teacher at Gateway. “Every class is different.” The program is voluntary for students who pay $50 for the five-week course. A win-win for all, the high-school students need money to pay for supplies and testing equipment for the Science Olympiad. But the elementary-school students get a kick out of such things as the insides of squids — in the study of biology.

God’s Message brings Hope, Joy, Love, and Life! In 1 Cor 3:6-7 Paul wrote, “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.” Growth is a fact of life and a biological law set forth by Almighty God. They possess tremendous spiritual applications. When the Word of God is planted in the heart, spiritual growth takes place.

Lake George Cabins and RV Park, a place to restore the soul Park now open for business By Sonja Oliver

Contributing writer For the Rob and Heidi Cleghorn family, a camping excursion in Lake George changed their perspective on life, causing them to take a step back and re-evaluate what was most important to them, such as family, their spirituality and their appreciation of God’s creation. Having lived a mobile life while on active duty and, following retirement, the Gleghorns began to look at where the next step in their lives might take them, and the open doors through which they might walk. While camping out at Eleven Mile State Park, the couple and their two children noticed a “for sale” sign that adver the Lake George Cabins and RV Park, a four-acre piece of property with cabins, a small lodge and camping sites. Built in 1945, the Lake George Cabins and RV Park was a very popular destination for campers who visited the Lake George area. Hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding and kayaking are some of the activities that visitors can enjoy because of the property’s proximity to Eleven Mile and Spinney Mountain reservoirs, Eleven Mile Canyon, Pike National Forest, the Tarryall Mountains and the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument. Rob Gleghorn, a retired Army major, said the place had been unoccupied for some time and was in need of some tender loving care and major updating. After looking over the bankowned property, located at the corner of U.S. 24 and Park County Road 90, the Gleghorns, were aware that a lot of work would be involved but decided to take a chance on purchasing the property as a business venture. A sign in the wilderness Heidi Gleghorn said that during their decision-making process and, when visiting the property prior to closing, she noticed a pair of doves living in the trees surrounding the lodge, and she took that to heart as a sign of encouragement. “Doves are reliable, dependable and are known for intimacy. When

Noah sent out a dove, it brought back a fig leaf, which is known for peace. Also, a dove descended on Jesus following his baptism; acknowledging his presence,” Heidi Gleghorn said. So she felt the sight of the pair was God’s way of saying to her “I’m here.” Rob Gleghorn also cited spirituality in making the decision to purchase the property. “I was having a quiet time and (during prayer) I asked God for a clear sign. I wanted to hear from him that next step and was given a scripture – Psalm 68 – where it says, and I’m paraphrasing, ‘You will build an oasis; people will come and camp on your land and you will thrive in business.’ I took that as clear direction,” Rob Gleghorn said. Once that decision was made, doors opened for financing; the couple sold three real estate holdings in four months during a time when the real estate market was down and properties were not moving. In addition, there were other bids for the purchase of the property but the other competitors dropped out. In the end, the Gleghorns were able to purchase the property for their bid of $100,000, one-half the asking price. Once the property was purchased, the Gleghorns began renovations, starting the process of bringing the park back to its glory days with $100,000 in upgrades and have plans for even more upgrades. A place to lay your head The Gleghorn’s want their park to be a place for people to be able to get away from distractions and recreate and to enjoy the natural surroundings the area has to offer. Their property is open year-round for individuals, groups, family reunions, wedding parties and church and military retreats. “We want to open the park up for fall and winter retreats, especially for the military so they can have some down time,” Rob Gleghorn said. With Heidi Gleghorn’s background in counseling, she said, she would like the park-like setting of Lake George Cabins and RV Park to be a place of healing and support for those who need to get away from the stress of daily life. She has a master’s degree in counseling and works for The Naviga-

IF YOU GO Located in the midst of Pike National Forest and on the western edge of town, Lake George Cabins and RV Park is situated along the South Platte River and is located 38 miles west of Colorado Springs on U.S. 24. Heading west and just after leaving the town of Lake George, turn left at the sign for Eleven Mile State Park (Park County Road 90).

tors, a Colorado Springs-based international, interdenominational Christian ministry. Family business During the renovation process, Heidi Gleghorn’s father, Todd Landsborough, was able to help with the renovations. He lives on the property and helps with day-to-day maintenance. Landsborough said he moved to Colorado from California in order to be a part of the process and to be closer to family. “This was God-ordained before we ever stepped into (the business venture),” Landsborough said. The Gleghorns said that while the park is not completely renovated, they are ready to accommodate guests with several of the 10 cabins, 15 RV spots and 2.9 acres for tent campers. Cabins are available year-round, and many of the RV spots are winterized for hunters and ice fishermen,or for campers who enjoy the Rocky Mountains during all four seasons. The park is also open to semi-permanent residency. Andreana Klade and her husband and three children have been staying at the park because her husband was assigned to work on the Tarryall Road project. She said that even before the park opened they wanted to stay there because of the convenient location and beautiful setting. “Of all the places we have stayed, this is one of the nicest. They are so friendly, so helpful and they don’t mind the kids. They are very familyoriented. It’s very comfortable being here. It’s very lovely,” Klade said. Because of the nice facilities, the family has decided to stay until the end of the school year.

Sprague is the new greeter By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews.com A place that fosters stability and a sense of hope, the Aspen Mine Center and the Community of Caring Foundation in Cripple Creek is both refuge and temporary-aid station. “When a client comes in we’re the first stop for them,” said Gary Sprague, the new client services coordinator. Sprague, who founded a ministry for single and divorced people, has a keen eye for genuine distress. “The economy’s bad so people need help with their rent, utilities, medical bills, these types of things,” he said. “We try to help them through the foundation and we’re also a site for the Salvation Army in Teller County.” With its reputation as a soft spot in difficult times, nonetheless the center sometimes denies requests for help. “There are people who’ve been working the system; they know every agency in Teller County,” Sprague said. “They’re just making the rounds.” On the other hand, Sprague and the others who offer lifelines have a knack for tapping into an innate strength, something unforeseen by their clients. “That’s the sweet spot; people who want to be helped, they’re humble, grateful,” Sprague said. “The help we can give them really helps them get to the next level.” For Sprague, the rewards are in seeing someone find a job, sign for an apartment and pay bills, each accelerated by that initial help. “We really want people to meet us half-way, encourage them to have responsibility,” he said. But for those with tremendous needs, the center is a one-stop shop with agencies such as the Department of Social Services, Pikes Peak Workforce Center, Public

Casey-Svetich recaps first 10 weeks New North Teller Build A Generation director off to quick start By Norma Engelberg Contributing writer

When Woodland Park hired Karen Casey-Svetich 10 weeks ago to direct the North Teller Build A Generation, she had a lot of work to do and a short time to get started. Casey-Svetich is the former director of the Community Partnership and Family Resource Center and a past president of the Cripple Creek-Victor RE-1 School District Board of Education. At the Nov. 21 Woodland Park City

Council meeting, she updated council on what has been happening at Build A Generation in the past 10 weeks. One of her first goals was to reenergize the BAG Coalition, whose volunteer members work to further the Build A Generation’s goals of strengthening youth development and the community by using their combined experience and gathered data to set priorities. “Strong communities create strong kids and strong kids create strong Casey-Svetich communities,” she said. Some of the data the coalition uses comes from the National Institute on Drug Abuse and includes how

way across the walkway and then jump from 18 feet up while the truck was moving at a high rate of speed. As he did so, he lost his balance due to the motion of the truck and fell from the walkway and underneath the tires. If you have seen the haul trucks, you know how large these tires are... about 12 feet high if I am estimating correctly. The tires ran over his head and he was killed instantly,” said Jason Marsteiner, his son, who was 17 at the time. “Yes, Mr Marsteiner was killed in a water truck accident in March of 1993 at the Ironclad mine,” confirmed Jane Mannon, after reviewing records. Initally, the mine did not recall the Marstiener incident. “My frame of reference for our safety record was the beginning of large scale surface mining in 1995. I should have been more clear. I’m not aware of this incident, but I’m sure that the community memory of a tragedy like this is much longer than our paper records or corporate memory. I mean no disrespect and will do my best to find anything I can,” Mannon said. MERCO Minerals was the owner at the time, and they wore working on the Ironclad/Globe Hill project. According to a state safety records narrative, “the victim (Harry Marsteiner) was fatally injured when he either jumped or was thrown from the driver side access platform of the truck during a runaway.” “I want them to tell the current miners about the accident so that they are aware of the dangers and hopefully prevent it from happening to anyone else. I would like to see some sort of memorial set up so that this will never be

building prevention factors and reducing risk for teens can act to prevent certain risky behaviors such as drug abuse, early pregnancy, dropping out of school and others. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also provides data on how adverse childhood experiences can affect a child throughout its life. Other data are collected by the state and locally through such surveys as Healthy Kids Colorado, which students are completing this year. This survey tracks teens’ perceptions on various subjects, including how easy they think it is to obtain alcohol and other drugs in their community. Since she started on the job, CaseySvetich has helped bring Rachel’s Challenge, an anti-bullying program, to Woodland Park High School and provided

forgotten again,” said Jason Marsteiner. Mannon also indentified another accident. “We had a contractor pass away on the site four years ago, but he had a preexisting health condition,” Mannon said. If you go to the CC&V web site, you will find a comprehensive breakdown of the mine’s safety and health guidelines. Many of the issues associated with the historic Revenue-Virginius mine are not a concern for CC&V. The biggest is carbon monoxide poisoning, which was the cause of death of the two miners who were killed on Nov. 17. “The Mine Safety and Health Administration is a very strong regulatory body,” Mannon said. “They take things seriously.” The Revenue-Virginius mine is located near Yankee Boy Basin, 6.9 miles southwest of Ouray, above the Camp Bird Mine, and below the Ruby Trust. Star Mine Operations LLC, a subsidiary of the Denver-based private mining company Silver Star Resources. Silver Star obtained a mining permit for the RevenueVirginius in February 2013 to mine silver, gold and sulfide minerals from vein deposits on patented mining claims purchased under a lease agreement by the company in 2011. According to the Colorado Mining Association web site, the Colorado’s mining industry directly employs 12,000 persons in the mining industry and generates more than 46,000 jobs in related industries such as engineering, consulting, finance, transportation, geotechnical and utility services, according to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment. Colorado ranks sixth among all states in mineral royalty receipts.

Council Continued from Page 1

Pikes Peak Regional Building Official Henry Yankowski said the new fees for commercial properties only look higher than the former fees because they combine the construction permit fee with fees for plumbing, mechanical and electrical permits. Teller County charged these four fees separately. He said he could have the requested comparisons ready before the Dec. 5 meeting. Whenever council approves the new fee structure, it will be retroactive to Nov. 4. Council also had an opportunity to choose which master plan it wants for the Memorial Park improvement project. By a vote of four to three, they decided on plan A, which doesn’t include space f0r a proposed aquatic center. This approval doesn’t mean that an aquatic center couldn’t be included in the park in the near future because three-quarters of the construction phasing over the next two to three years is identical no matter which plan was chosen. Council then moved on to approve a conditional use permit for the proposed Tractor Supply Co. facility for outside sales display and storage of farm, ranch and landscaping equipment. Smith, whose company Matrix Design Group is the project’s engineer, stepped out of council chambers for this discussion. The 22,000-squarefoot retail building is permitted in the service commercial zone on North Colo. 67 but outside storage and display are only permitted conditionally with council approval. Developer Ray Hix said council’s approval of this permit means the company can start construction as soon as possible. The new retail facility will have about 17 fulltime employees, he said. Council also approved ordinances on initial posting with final approval set for the Dec. 5 meeting. These included changes to the Woodland Station Special Sign Regulations to make them more flexible and less restrictive and the 2014 budget. The property tax mill levy for 2014 will remain at 16.249 mills, a level that hasn’t changed since 1991. Finally, as a “good neighbor policy,” council approved an initial payment of $5,000 to Dale and Debbie Carley to help defray costs incurred by them when a 6-inch city water main broke on Nov. 11, flooding the two downstairs rental units of their Forest Edge property. Cities and other government entities are considered immune from paying these kinds of costs but many cities have instituted good neighbor policies, said City Manager David Buttery. He added that paying these costs does not mean the city is accepting liability for the damages. The city will also help defray damages up to $5,000 for each of the two displaced tenants and will ask the Colorado Intergovernmental Risk Sharing Association, the city’s insurance company, to help the Carley’s with other costs. However, the association is under no obligation to pay these costs and if it does, the city’s insurance rates could rise. Smith said he likes the idea of a good neighbor policy but what if instead of maybe $50,000 in damages the next incident costs $400,000. “Where do you draw the line?” he asked. If council completes all of its 2013 business at the Dec. 5 meeting, there won’t be another meeting until 2014.

Woodland Park boys ready to hit the hardwood Panthers hope to hit double figures in victories By Danny Summers

Dsummers@ourcoloradonews.com Don’t be surprised if you fail to recognize many of the faces on the Woodland Park High School boys’ basketball team. That’s because the only players back from last year’s squad are Dakota Herman and Sam Hopfe. “We picked up a lot of new talent and we’re looking good this year,” Herman said with confidence. “Our practices right now will determine the outcome of the rest of the season. We have to see how we mesh and how we develop.” Herman, a 6-foot-2 junior shooting guard, is the lone returning starter from a Panthers’ team that went 6-16 last year, 2-12 in the Class 4A Metro League. Herman was the third on the team in scoring at about 11 points per game. “I learned the varsity speed of the game last year,” Herman said. “And from soccer this fall I picked up a lot of leadership. I hope I can bring the team together as a leader. “I think we can run a lot more, I think we have to have a balance. There’s a lot of physical talent in our league, so we have to play intelligently.” Hopfe, also a 6-2 junior, saw plenty of

time last season in a reserve role. He will be counted on in a starting role this season as a strong forward/center. “I think we’ll be really competitive and have more wins than last year,” Hopfe said. “I think we’ll get at least 10 wins this year.” Added Herman: “We’re trying to double our wins and play .500 in league.” The Panthers don’t possess a lot of height - Herman and Hopfe are the tallest players on the team - so they will have to rely on speed and conditioning to get the upper hand on opponents. Senior Keegan Harmen will be among the many new varsity faces. “I think we’re all ready,” Harmen said. “I’m expecting a lot more out of the team than last year. I feel like we have more heart. More dedication. And our overall effort seems a lot higher.” Panthers’ second-year coach Joel Herman knows that without a bona fide big man wearing Woodland Park green and white, his squad will have to create opportunities on both ends of the court. “If we can pick up the defensive end, get turnovers and run off a rebound we’ll be better off,” he said. “We have to take advantage of our altitude and take advantage of our youth - we only have four seniors and they need to be able to run the floor the way I know they can.” In addition to Harmen, the other three seniors on the team are Josh Longoria, Randy Westfall and Robert Ensley.

What the Woodland Park boys basketball team lacks in experience, it makes up for with enthusiasm. Coach Joel Herman, center, is flanked by his two returning varsity players – Dakota Herman, left, and Sam Hopfe. Photo by Danny Summers It appears as though sophomore Dominik Cunico will earn a starting spot. Sophomore Cecil Cox will also see a lot of playing time, as will junior Justin Logsdon. “We have to learn how to play fundamental basketball,” Herman said. “We have to learn how to box out right. We have to have passion and pride. You have to have some pride when you play defense. “We have to build on all of that. Yes, I want to win games, but we have to have

the fundamentals. We’re not athletic like everybody we play. That’s what it comes down to.” The Panthers open their season Dec. 2 at Canon City and then play at Buena Vista the following day. They also host their annual Mountain Madness Tournament Dec. 5-7. “The competition is going to be tough in our tournament, but I want to go 2-3,” Herman said. “I think we can do that.”

Lady Panthers are hungry for a big year on the basketball court Alexa Garrick is the only senior on the team By Danny Summers

Dsummers@ourcoloradonews.com A new dawn has arrived in Teller County and the Woodland Park High School girls’ basketball may never be the same. A dramatic statement indeed, but there is reason to be optimistic about this season if you are a fan of Panthers hoops. The long-awaited junior class - plus one transfer and one senior - is looking every bit as good as advertised in the early going. Now it’s just a matter of proving it on the court against the opposition. “We’ve all played together and really long time and we know how each other plays,” said Alexa Garrick, the lone returning senior on the squad. “Now that we’ve had a chance to see how each other plays on varsity I think that will make a really big difference.” Garrick is the lone returning starter from last season, where she averaged about four points and four rebounds per game. Panthers’ coach David Graf is carrying nine juniors on a roster of 10. “The junior class loves the game and they are way excited about this,” said Graf, who is in his sixth season as coach. “We need Alexa to step up and be a leader for us, especially since we have a junior class

that doesn’t want to step on each other’s feet. Her leadership is going to be huge for us. In fact, that will be her main role for us. “She’s breaking all the huddles. She’s talking to the girls. It’s a good start for her.” Woodland Park was 3-20 last season, 2-12 in the Class 4A Metro League. Both conference victories were against Wasson, which closed its doors in May. Woodland Park’s Achilles Heel last season was its inability to score on a consistent basis. The Panthers were held to under 35 points in the majority of their games. They averaged 43 points in their victories. “The difference with this group this season is the ability of all five girls on the court to score,” Graf said. “Plus these girls play with great defensive intensity, just like my last group. “If we can keep teams to the 40-point range I feel we can consistently score 40.” Lexie Comer swung last year, averaging 1.5 points and 1.8 rebounds. “We have really good team chemistry and we understand different aspects of each other’s games,” she said. Transfer Katelyn Kemp could be the big-time scorer the Panthers have been looking for. Kemp started as a sophomore for Fountain-Fort Carson last year and averaged 3.5 points on a Trojans squad that went 2-20. “If we all work together and all work as a team and all get along we will do way better than if we all play our own individual games,” Kemp said. “I feel I can be the

The Woodland Park girls basketball team is aiming to make a serious run at a playoff bid. The Panthers have a deep squad this season. Pictured here from left to right are (front row) Jeanette Worscheck, Katie Stunkard and Lexie Comer. (Back row) Alexa Garrick, Katelyn Kemp, Darian Sanfelice and Kelsey Arseneau. Photo by Danny Summers scorer that the team needs.” Graf believes Kemp will be a difference maker this season. “I think the other girls appreciate her ability to play basketball,” he said. “She shoots really well and she has the ability to score. I think the other girls have latched onto that and they understand it’s something that the team needs.” The girls aren’t predicting a state championship at this point, but they are opti-

mistic that they can at least triple last year’s win total. “We definitely want a winning record this season,” said Darian Sanfelice, who will be a tough inside post player. “We have a special team. I think we accomplish that goal.” The Panthers open their season Dec. 3 at Buena Vista. The Panthers will host their annual Mountain Madness Tournament Dec. 5-7.

Worthey chastised by town board By Pat Hill

phill@ourcoloradonews.com In a breach of protocol, Green Mountain Falls’ Mayor Lorrie Worthey posted a letter from former Marshal/Police Chief Tim Bradley on her Facebook page this month. The breach in the personnel policy and grievance process was in using social media before alerting the board of trustees to the letter. Potentially libelous, the letter made several unsubstantiated accusations against town employees, including Rob McArthur, public works director and Chris Frandina, town clerk/treasurer. As well, Bradley made unsubstantiated claims about a conversation he had with the town attorney Dan Stuart. Worthey said everything Bradley had written was true. “This really should go to the attorney; Lorrie, it really should,” she said. “Those (accusations) should be addressed with legal advice,” Frandina said. “No, no, no,” Worthey said. Referring to one of the accusations in the letter, Worthey asked why Bradley was not given a key to town hall. Trustee Mac Pitrone, the marshal’s backup liaison to the board, said that Bradley had three times turned down the offer to move his office to town hall, complete with renovations. Instead, Bradley chose to remain in the marshal’s office despite its conditions related to leakage and odors. “I’d like to respond to the document,” trustee Margaret Peterson said. Peterson then repeated comment from Sam Mamet, executive director of Colorado Municipal League, as told to her by Mayor Pro Tem Jane Newberry. Mamet recently talked to the board about hiring a town manager. “Mamet said that it had come to his attention that a letter was posted on Facebook and then distributed to many of the

public works’ director’s (Rob McArthur) contacts,” Peterson said. “Mamet told Jane that it was a very poor choice to post a letter that was never brought to any of the board’s attention before. He said it was a poor decision that has no positive benefits for the town and it’s a shame that the mayor chose to voice her opinion in such a destructive manner.” Bradley’s letter was dated in June and the board did not hear about it until November, Peterson said. “If you have an employee who has a grievance it is brought to the board’s attention immediately so that it can be investigated so that due diligence can be done,” she said. “This letter was posted on Facebook before this board could look into these matters. It was hidden from the board.” Marshal’s liaison to the board, Howard Price, added. “We can’t see the mayor’s blog,” he said, referring to Worthey’s blog as well as her Facebook page. However, by then, all the board members had a copy of Bradley’s letter printed by someone who had access to Worthey’s social-media communications. “When you have something in writing and you find there are lies, straight-out lies, you have to decide if it is one lie, two lies or all lies,” Price said. Bradley’s references in the letter about McArthur A paragraph on Page 4 of 7 written by Bradley: “Sgt. Barnes stated to me that she did not feel comfortable and notified dispatch that she was at the public works facility. Sgt. Barnes informed me that she is not comfortable working in GMF and feels that the job here is unsafe due to the working environment being unsafe.” Referring to that part of the letter, trustee Price asked Sgt. Barnes, who was standing in the back of the room during the meeting, to comment on that passage: “Mr. McArthur did not contact me in

Controversy continues its swirl around the Gazebo in Green Mountain Falls but at least some of the local wildlife seem oblivious to the turmoil. Photo by Rob Carrigan any unusual way,” Barnes said. “I want to be sure that everybody knew, because of what is being posted on social media, that Mr. McArthur is not a sexual predator, has not been stalking me, harassing me in any way shape, or form.” Frandina responds to accusations against her From Frandina, Bradley writes, in part, that he “had been met with rude and offensive behavior from the GMF Town Clerk, Chris Frandina.” Frandina, whose duties include keeping the board from straying into illegal territory, said, “At no point did this come to the board to be accepted. What the board would have done was start the grievance procedure. So it went on Facebook. I would like the attorney to start the grievance procedure. I am definitely interested in my inclusion, in the fact that an unsubstantiated piece of material was posted with the fraudulent comments and not presented to my board of trustees, my employees, so

SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY The Municipality respects the right of officials and employees to communicate on social media. However, officials and employees must recognize a clear distinction between acts as individuals and acts as representatives of the Municipality because they may be considered spokespersons of the municipality. Because of the possibility, officials and employees should ensure that views expressed on social media are personal and not those of the municipality. Social Media users can, at times, be held personally liable for damages resulting from their postings. No information should be revealed or discussed by elected or appointed officials or representatives related to pending decisions of the board of trustees, work in process, or sensitive information, legal advice, or other confidential or privileged matters. that I could answer; but that it would just go on Facebook and people could just feel that it’s the truth and I have nothing to say.
