HIGH SCHOOLERS GET PINK FOR CANCER AWARENESS

The $535 million bond and $33 million mill levy override will be on the Nov. 8 ballot By Shanna Fortier sfortier@coloradocommunitymedia.com Classrooms at Kendrick Lakes Elementary School in Lakewood are separated by portable partition walls. The office is in the center of the school, causing visitors to walk through hallways adjacent to classrooms to get there. The 625-square-foot cafeteria houses just five folding tables and a cramped serving line. The school was designed as an openA look at the plan school when it mill on PAGE 12 was built in 1970 with If it fails on brutalist architecture PAGE 13 that’s been described as lacking humanity and energy efficiency. The school, which serves the Alameda High School articulation area, is one of five schools slated to be replaced if the Jefferson County Board of Education’s bond measure — 3B on the Nov. 8 ballot — passes. “Acoustically, (the partitions) don’t make a lot of sense,” said Tim Reed, executive director of facilities and construction management for the school district. “There’s a lot of noise transition, which makes it difficult to teach.” Last week, as Reed walked around the 46-year-old school building — the average age for schools in Jeffco — he pointed out original carpeting, sinks and cabinets; a cluster of temporary classrooms built in the 1980s that have become permanent structures on campus; and the many staircases that prevent the school from being wheelchair accessible.

Golden police launch sober-driving initiative Police, Metro Taxi partner to bring awareness to dangers of drinking and driving By Christy Steadman csteadman@coloradocommunitymedia.com In Golden, being a hero can be as easy as avoiding an alcoholic beverage before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. It’s called Project Sober Hero, a new initiative by the Golden Police Department. Police Sgt. Matthew Porter said its purpose is to educate the public on the dangers of drinking and driving, with a more positive approach that he hopes will reduce intoxicated driving and traffic accidents. “We want to positively reinforce the choice to not drink and drive,” said Golden Police Officer Jacob Lizakowski. “We’re rewarding those who are designated drivers and those who make the right decision not to drink and drive.” Rewards come in the form of a voucher given out by police officers. The sober driver then takes his or her voucher to the Golden Police Department, 911 10th St., in exchange for a $5 gift card, redeemable at a local business. The initiative helps get the message

In partnership with the police department’s Project Sober Hero, Metro Taxi donated the car free of charge.

Police could stop a driver for not making a complete stop at a stop sign, and if the officer finds out the driver is sober and providing a ride to someone who had been drinking alcohol, the designated driver is eligible for a voucher. Or, another example, Lizakowski said, is

if officers are on foot patrol downtown and are informed of somebody calling a cab or similar service to get a ride home rather than driving themselves. “The people we’ve given them to have been thrilled with the program,” Lizakowski said. Sober continues on Page 34

NEWS IN A HURRY

Randy Hupp, 59, of Applewood, stands with the pieces of a Civil War cannon while in the midst of its restoration on Sept. 16. Hupp has since finished the project, and now the cannon sits outside of the Rock Rest Lodge, 16005 Mount Vernon Road in Golden. Photo by Christy Steadman

HELLO

... My Name Is

A glimpse of the people in our community

RANDY HUPP Goldenite, restorer of old things Making a move I’ve lived in the Golden and Arvada areas since 1983. I’ve been in Applewood for about a year, and before that, over in Pleasant View since about 1992. Soon I will be moving to Ohio. My dad is older — he is 87 — and he needs my help. I was born in Ohio, but it’s going to be a hard move for me. I will probably move back to Colorado — I like it here. I enjoy being close to the mountains and the people. Maintaining the Rock Rest’s antiques I do maintenance at the Rock Rest

Lodge in Golden. I built all the furniture on the deck. I’ve been there off and on for about 10 years. It is a lot of fun. I like the opportunity to work with my hands and I enjoy working with wood and creating things. I like restoring old things — bringing stuff back to life. A lot of people would throw stuff away, but I like bringing it back. An interesting project I recently finished rebuilding the Civil War cannon that is right outside the front door of the Rock Rest. It took about three weeks to complete. I replaced all the rotted wood with mahogany and powder coated all the hardware — the metal parts. The barrel is also powder coated. Then I had to reassemble the whole thing. It was a job, for sure. The Rock Rest has a lot of antiques, but the cannon needed a lot of work done to it. It’s probably one of the most interesting projects I’ve done. If you have suggestions for My Name Is..., contact Christy Steadman at csteadman@ coloradocommunitymedia.com.

locations far from an electrical provider. Brandon showed us pictures of one such installation near the tar sands of northern Alberta. Many utilities are also developing an interest in battery storage. Utilities are constantly creating more electricity than is needed at any given time. With a large bank of batteries, a utility could run its generating stations at a much lower level, letting the batteries absorb any unused

electricity while also satisfying surges in demand as they arise. Even if the battery is not a perfect fit for me right now, with the rising costs of electricity from the grid, and the falling costs of solar + batteries, there are more and more opportunities where batteries make sense. It was exciting to see the future of energy storage at Iron Edison. More info is at www.IronEdison.com.

Is Home Battery Storage Right for You? What I Learned Visiting a Lakewood Company

Last Saturday I joined fellow members of the Denver Electric Vehicle Council on a tour of Iron Edison, a Lakewood company which manufactures lithium iron (distinct from lithium ion) batteries for home storage of electricity. Such batteries are most appropriate for offgrid properties, such as in the mountains, but they could make sense in certain applications for homes which do have access to the electrical grid, especially if that grid offers off-peak pricing, but also if you need to maintain electrical service during a black-out. Brandon Williams, co-owner with his wife of Iron Edison, is shown at right explaining the circuitry that makes his batteries work. He told our group that he has two politically opposite clients — right-wing survivalists preparing to survive a social meltdown and left-wing environmentalists who want to reduce or eliminate the

use of fossil fuels. Both sectors utilize solar photovoltaic arrays, capturing electricity from the sun and storing it in large batteries. Another big client base for Iron Edison is the cell phone industry, which needs to install cell towers or small generating stations in remote

ELECTION 2016: JEFFERSON COUNTY COMMISSIONER, DISTRICT 1

Democratic challenger aims to make difference

Republican incumbent ‘molded’ by Jeffco

Marti Smith focuses on ‘smart-government’ approach

Libby Szabo seeks second term as county commissioner

By Christy Steadman csteadman@coloradocommunitymedia.com If Marti J. Smith could choose anything to be her legacy, it would be that she is remembered for making a difference in the lives of the people in Jefferson County for years to come. The Jeffco way of life can change over time because of growth and other economic factors, she said. However, it’s important to have a vision for the Smith county. “We want to maintain where people can live, work and play throughout the years,” Smith said. Smith, 66, was born and raised in Michigan and moved to Jefferson County in 1985. She has lived all over the county, including Evergreen, Littleton and for the last 2 1/2 years in Arvada. A Democrat, Smith is running against incumbent Libby Szabo for the seat of Jefferson County commissioner for District 1, which is the northern part of the county, including Westminster and Arvada. Commissioners are voted on at large, though they must reside within their district boundaries. If elected, Smith plans on working toward what she calls a smart-government approach, meaning providing a “fiscally responsible and efficient county government.” To accomplish this, Smith says she will focus on land stewardship and protecting residential communities from overdevelopment, as well as seeking solutions for affordable housing for both the county’s

senior population and the career-starters or recent graduates looking to establish themselves in Jeffco. The job market is also important, Smith said, such as maintaining and attracting good-paying jobs, and finding a balance of medium-to-large businesses compared to the amount of existing small businesses. She also will work on improving communication and providing better transparency of county government to residents through advances in technology. People is what Smith loves most about the Jeffco community, she said. “A widely diverse population creates a wonderful place for children to grow up in,” she said. A key quality of Smith is reaching out and involving different groups of people, said Mike Fernandez, Smith’s former employer at U.S. West Communications Group. “She’ll be a builder working with the community, rather than a divider,” Fernandez said. “She has a can-do spirit.” She also is forthright and passionate, Fernandez said. “I imagine she would approach the seat by eliciting ideas and working across party lines to get things accomplished . . . That’s the type of person who should be in politics today.” Smith earned a bachelor of science from Western Michigan University in 1972, then a master’s degree with honors from Regis University in 1996. To hold a Ph.D from Capella University in clinical psychology, Smith only lacks the dissertation. She has spent Smith about 25 years as a senior officer in corporate America. She started out teaching communications at a public middle school in Michigan, but transitioned into marketing and advertising. While working at an advertising agency in Chicago, Smith was recruited by Coors. Smith continues on Page 6

By Christy Steadman csteadman@coloradocommunitymedia.com Because her mother had been involved in politics, Libby Szabo was raised to believe it’s important to be well-informed on issues and know your political leaders. Szabo, a Republican, is running against Marti J. Smith in the upcoming election to keep her seat as the Jefferson County commissioner for District Szabo 1 — the northern part of the county that includes Arvada and Westminster. Commissioners are voted on at large, though they must reside within their district boundaries. “Jefferson County has molded who I am,” Szabo said. “That’s why I want to give back in the role of county commissioner. I’ve always been an advocate of serving your community.” Szabo served in the state legislature for four years as the representative for House District 27, which is Arvada. And when the opportunity came up to become a commissioner for Jefferson County, she saw it as coming home, she said. Whether it be volunteering at a local food bank or coaching youth sports, being involved in a community is important, Szabo said. “Serve where you’re planted because that’s your community.” Szabo, 52, was born in Denver and moved to Jefferson County when she was 10. She is a graduate of Wheat Ridge High School. She was sworn in to the Board of County Commissioners in January 2015

to serve the remaining two years of former commissioner Faye Griffin’s term, after she was elected to county Clerk and Recorder. Commissioners serve four-year terms. Szabo believes that collaboration and working with different entities is important for a successful government. She spent a year talking to department heads to learn how they operate and hearing opinions on what the commissioners can do to make county government more efficient, she said. According to Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Shrader, Szabo is a supporter of the sheriff’s office, and believes she will continue the strong, collaborative working relationship if re-elected. Budget requests are one issue Shrader works on with commissioners. “Conversations are always respectful,” he said, “even when we would be in a position of disagreement.” Szabo says she has implemented positive changes to the county budget process, including making it more transparent and user-friendly to the average citizen. Arvada Mayor Marc Williams also lauds Szabo’s relationship with county and city entities. “She’s been very cohesive working with the other commissioners,” Williams said. “I’ve always found her to be a good go-to person on Arvada issues.” Szabo believes Jeffco community core values, include public safety and ensuring that infrastructure keeps up with growth. Setting a policy or plan for smart growth is vital, she said. “We’ve got to be ready,” Szabo said. “Jefferson County is an active community.” Szabo is also an advocate of small

Jeffco Stadium goes pink for breast cancer Wheat Ridge High and Standley Lake faced off in the Pink Showdown By Shanna Fortier sfortier@colorado communitymedia.com Pink was the color of the night at Jeffco Stadium last Friday. For the past three years, Wheat Ridge High School has partnered with Lutheran Medical Center to celebrate breast cancer awareness during a football game in October. “Every year it has gotten better with involvement of the student senates of both schools,” said Nick DeSimone, athletic director at Wheat Ridge High School. “The kids really get into it because (breast cancer) touches so many different people in so many ways.” This year, The Wheat Ridge Farmers took on Standley Lake High School Gators on the field Oct. 14, beating them 36-9. But off the field, Standley Lake joined the pink effort by partnering with Good Samaritan Medical Center to double the breast cancer awareness efforts. “It’s a good partnership,” DeSimone said. “Typically, we play them every year, so in future we think that we’ll maintain that relationship” for the Pink Showdown.

She spent time as the executive director of the Arabian Horse Association in Aurora and worked for the U.S. West Communications Group, which is now CenturyLink, Inc. Most recently, Smith owned a marketing and strategic communications business, but referred her clients to business associates to focus on her county campaign. Smith said her strongest attributes as a county commissioner would be that she is a visionary, along with her professional experience with large budgets and managing teams of hundreds of people. And, Smith said, she has a strong ability to strategically plan. “We need to have someone,” she said, “who can take data and interpret it with the diverse population and growth of the county” in mind.

businesses, which she believes is the backbone of a community. In 2014, she was a recipient of the National Federation of Independent Business’s Guardian of Small Business Award, which is given to legislators in recognition of their efforts to support small business issues. Westminster Mayor Herb Atchison and Szabo worked together on securing primary jobs throughout the county. They serve together on the board of the Urban Drainage and Flood Control, which consists of county commissioners, mayors and city councilmembers from across the metro area. Szabo is an effective listener, is willing to make decisions, asks questions and is a good collaborator, Atchison said. “She’s a proven supporter of Jefferson County,” he said. “She doesn’t do this to get fanfare or recognition. She’s there for the people she serves.”

Mines receives treasure trove of gems and minerals $1.75 million donation to school’s museum includes about 800 rare specimens

By Christy Steadman csteadman@coloradocommunitymedia.com The late Hilja Herfurth’s first love was the opera. But closely following that was her passion for gems and minerals. The latter could have been influenced by her late husband Gerry, said Ed Raines, the collections manager at the Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum, which recently received $1.75 million worth of minerals, gems and meteorites from Hilja Herfurth’s estate. It’s “the kind of donation every museum dreams of,” museum director Dr. Bruce Geller said. Gerry Herfurth was an avid and meticulous collector of rare minerals, gems and meteorites, Raines said, and probably collected for at least 25 or 30 years until his death in 1999. Hilja Herfurth died in June. The Herfurth donation, which arrived at the museum in September, included roughly 800 specimens

IF YOU GO The Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum is located at 1310 Maple St. in Golden. Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. on Sundays. Drop-in admission to the museum and gift shop is free. Guided tours are also available for a fee. Reservations must be done by phone at least one week in advance. Contact the museum at 303-273-3815 or geomuseum@ mines.edu. Learn more about the museum at www.mines.edu/ Geology_Museum. from all over the world. They join the more than 20,000 specimens the museum already has — plus an additional 20,000 microscopic specimens in the museum’s collection, Raines said. The museum is in possession of the state mineral collection, which started in 1895, he said. And there are about 1,500 specimens on display at any given time at the two-level building on the School of Mines campus in Golden.

“There’s some wild stuff in the (Herfurth) donation,” said student Rachel Bierma, a senior working toward a degree in geological engineering. Bierma also works at the museum. She said it’s uncommon for the museum to receive a donation with specimens it doesn’t already have, but the Herfurth donation did include some new ones. Not only that, some specimens can be used to replace those of lesser quality already in the museum. “This is an outstanding addition to our collection,” Raines said. “It will be great for teaching and exhibition for years to come.” Specimens used for teaching in classrooms are limited as far as diversity and quality, said Stephen Enders, professor and interim department head of Mines’ geology and geological engineering department. The museum — and the Herfurth donation — can be used as supplemental tools for students, he added. Bierma agreed. For example, students learn about a mineral in class, often from a textbook, but can later see it at the museum, she said. “It helps education a lot.” But many of the museum’s visitors include people who are not Mines students. Some are members of the general public — some even from out-of-state — and the museum often hosts schoolchildren on field trips. In fact, Raines said, based on attendance, Mines Geology Museum is second only to the Harvard Mineralogical Museum in terms of visitors. “This museum illustrates the world of minerals for everyone from scientists to 3-year-olds,” Raines said. After Gerry Herfurth died, Hilja Herfurth made smaller donations of specimens with an estimated value of about $400,000. This most recent donation also included a cash donation to Mines’ Geology Museum, $200,000 to Mines’ general scholarship fund and a number of rare archaeological artifacts that Geller gifted to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. The Herfurths’ connection to Colorado School of Mines is uncertain, Raines said, who before Hilja Herfurth’s death, visited her home in Denver where some of the specimens in the donation had been on display. But, he said, it is known that the Herfurths had a great deal of respect for the museum. “You can’t be involved with mineral collecting without an appreciation of the knowledge behind it,” Raines said. “And School of Mines fits the bill. We are a world-class mining institution.”

Golden artist receives national recognition Patrick Maxcy has solo exhibit at Muhammad Ali Center By Christy Steadman csteadman@coloradocommunitymedia.com

One of six 10-foot murals artist Patrick Maxcy created for the Muhammad Ali Center. Photos by Shanna Fortier

“Ali to Me: Art by Patrick Maxcy” opened to the public Sept. 2 with an artist reception and meet-and-greet on Sept. 16, which was one of the events during the weekend of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards.

7952 Kunst Rd.

A Golden resident is being recognized nationally — not only for his art, but also for his belief in humanitarian work. Patrick Maxcy, 35, was the guest artist for the fourth annual Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards, Sept. 17 at the Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville, Kentucky. A meet-and-greet with Maxcy took place as part of the awards ceremony, but the “Ali to Me: Art by Patrick Maxcy” exhibit will be on display at the center until Jan. 2. “Having my artwork displayed at the center, and (it) being viewed by thousands of people on a monthly basis, is a pretty big deal,” Maxcy said. “I get to be part of his (Ali) story by sharing his life’s story — visually — with others.” For the exhibit, Maxcy painted six 10-foot by 4-foot murals, each inspired by one of Ali’s six core principles — confidence, conviction, dedication, respect, giving and spirituality. Having grown up in a creative household, Maxcy has been an artist nearly all his life. He enjoys painting for gallery shows, as well as large scale murals, he said. To learn more about Maxcy and his art, visit www.patrickmaxcyart.com. The murals he painted for the Muhammad Ali Center can be seen on Maxcy’s Facebook page: www.facebook. com/PatrickMaxcyArt. More information about the Muhammad Ali Center and the humanitarian awards is available at www.alicenter.org.

Q&A with Golden artist Patrick Maxcy When you found out you were going to be the featured artist what was your reaction? I thought it was a joke. I get a lot of emails about possible jobs that don’t fully go through. I try to not get my hopes up until I learn more about the projects. Once I learned more about this one, I was excited for the challenge. I got the phone call to create the murals back in January. It was a long process of meetings, phone calls, sketches, approvals, minor details, research. Once all the materials and designs were set in place, each piece took me only three days to paint. I have painted a lot and tend to work fairly quickly. In what ways do you consider yourself a humanitarian artist? Art is a universal language that can be shared with others. I work closely with several nonprofits, traveling and painting murals for communities in need. I’ve used my talent to teach and help kids, through art, in low income areas. I have also used it to create large scale, vivid murals in communities throughout the United States, as well as parts of Africa and Central America. Do you have a favorite mural that you did for this exhibit? If so, which one and why? Each one is different. Each piece was researched and thought out to share a specific narrative. I really enjoyed the various challenges in each piece, since they have so many unique elements. What did you enjoy about incorporating Ali’s six core principles into your art? I enjoyed learning more about Ali’s life outside of the boxing ring, through his personal journals and stories I read. I was able to take (the) stories I read and pair them with the core values to create each mural.

tion is asking residents to approve 3B, a $535 million bond that would provide money for improvements and repairs to schools. At Patterson Elementary in Lakewood, built in 1964, improvements would include new carpeting, getting rid of portable patricians that separate classrooms, replacing doors and heightening the ceiling, which currently measures at 7 feet, the minimum code requirement. The plan would be to close the school for a year, routing students to different schools during construction, like what’s happening at Stein Elementary in Lakewood this school year. “We think this building has potential, even though it also has issues,” Reed said of Patterson. Of the $535 million, about $233 million will go toward replacing and renovating schools. “We have accomplished many great things in Jeffco, but our building are beginning to fail,” said Karyn Peabody, Golden resident and parent of elementary students. At Kyffin Elementary, where Peabody’s children attend school, the building has received a facility index

rating of poor, slating it for a partial replacement and renovation if the bond dollars pass. Last school year, the sewage system at the school backed up requiring students to use portable toilets. The school is also one of 91 facilities that tested positive to lead in the drinking water. “This is a bare minimum,” Peabody said. “Our kids deserve to use a bathroom and drink from any water fountain in their building.” Bond dollars also include upgrading gyms and playing fields at eight area high schools. Superintendent Dan McMinimee said these improvements will not only improve space for athletic teams to practice, but also improve safety of student athletes by installing turf fields. The bond improvements are about bringing equality to what schools districtwide offer, McMinimee said: As it is now, some schools have turf fields and second gyms; others don’t. “The board made a decision to try to provide equity across the whole system,” he said. But Leonor Lucero, a parent of two middle school

students in South Jeffco, said she opposes the bond since she doesn’t see gym and turf improvements as a priority. “I would rather see money go to actually repairing schools,” she said. Sixth-grade shift Also included in the bond measure is $67 million for the proposed K-5, 6-8 reconfiguration. This would include adding 120 classrooms to 12 middle schools to make room for sixth graders at area elementary schools to move into the middle schools. With this shift, about 150 portable classrooms at elementary schools will be removed, McMinimee said. The Jeffco Board of Education approved the middle school plan this summer as part of its Facilities Master Plan, with the goal to provide the same educational opportunities for all students in the district. Five of the district’s 17 middle schools already house sixth graders. Education experts say most middle schools across the country are gravitating to the sixth- through eighth-grade middle school structure. Dru Tomlin, director of middle-level

N1

Careers

services at the Association for Middle Level Education, said this is because middle school environments provide programs supporting social and emotional growth, and opportunities that begin readying students for college and careers. However, Lucero doesn’t believe there is enough research that supports this as a good decision. “When a school district has so many schools that need new roofs, it’s not a good use of tax dollars,” she said of the shift. Laura Boggs, a former school board member, opposes the bond measure because she says too much of the bond goes toward what she calls “the forced move of sixth graders from elementary to middle school.” “I appreciate that this board is saying we believe in moving sixth graders,” she said. “But the community conversation around that hasn’t happened at a deep enough level.” If the bond should fail, district officials say they will continue to move sixth graders to middle schools, but would have to evaluate where and when that change would be most fiscally feasible.

A look at the mill The Jeffco Board of Education is also seeking a $33 million mill levy override (3A), which would generate funding to attract and retain teachers, mental health staff and help cover state funding gaps that could affect class sizes and the ability to fund deferred maintenance on buildings. One-third, or $12.6 million, of the mill levy override would go toward attracting and retaining employees. Of that, $1.6 million is designated for administrators. Board of Education Member Ali Lasell has reported that on average, Jeffco teachers make 19 percent less than those in surrounding districts. In 2015, the teacher turnover rate for Jeffco Schools rose 6 percent over the previous two years. Lasell hopes that by providing more compensation for teachers, they will stay in the district. But Lucero and Boggs say that’s not good enough. “I don’t disagree that teachers in Jeffco are underpaid, and I want them to be paid fair,” Lucero said. “But out of the $33 million, only $8 million is allocated

to teachers and that’s really not going to move the swing. It’s not going to get them to be any more competitive than they are today.” Boggs said this is disrespectful to school staff and it will not attract or retain good teachers. Jefferson County Education Association President John Ford said only time will tell. “It’s a start,” he said, adding that currently Jeffco is not competitive with the surrounding districts. “As we move forward, we always have to keep in mind that our kids come first and the best way to educate kids is to have a high quality educator in front of our classes. If we choose not to address the problem or vote ‘no’ on this, then the consequences are going to be devastating.” Mental health support for schools is also addressed in the mill allocating $3.7 million toward hiring half-time counselors for every elementary school. “Our belief is that prevention may be a better

investment that reaction,” Board of Education President Ron Mitchell said of increasing the district’s mental health investment. Being a teacher for more than 20 years, Ford said mental health needs for students is something he has seen an increased need for. Although increased teacher compensation and mental health have been hot topics in regards to the bond, the biggest chunk of the mill levy override would fill in for reduced state funding for the 20172018 school year, which the district has called its first priority. The $29.7 million would go toward backfilling any decreased funding from the state to maintain existing programs and compensation. “The last time Colorado was at the national average for school funding was 1987,” McMinimee said. “Since that time, there has been a ratcheting down of funding for schools. That’s why you see about 50 school districts this fall going out for bonds and mills.” Jeffco’s disadvantage in state funding is the formula that gives first funding to at-risk schools, McMinimee said.

With 86,708 students and 155 schools in the district, Jeffco is the second largest school district in the state, behind Denver, which totals at 90,234 students and 175 schools. This is the reason McMinimee said the bond and mill amounts Jeffco is asking for are higher than surrounding districts. Denver Schools is seeking a $572 million bond and a $56.6 million mill levy override. “You’ve gotta look at the number but also at the size of the district,” McMinimee said. “When you look around us, smaller districts are looking at more money per student.” If the measures fail If the bond and mill don’t pass with voters this election, the Jeffco Board of Education will be tasked with directing staff on how to decrease the budget. According to the district, some possible impacts are school closures and consolidations; split schedules; year round schools; changing boundaries and transportation radius; limited ability to meet basic deferred maintenance; continuing to lose great staff; larger class sizes; higher fees for parents; lack of resources for student learn-

ing; or cutting programs and opportunities for students. “In Northwest Arvada, the remedy may be different than in South Jeffco,” McMinimee said. “If we don’t have operating dollars, we will look at where to save money. School closures do this.” Early this year, the district proposed closing eight elementary schools — Glennon Heights, Pleasant View, Patterson, Campbell, Little, Kullerstrand, Stober and Long View — with the hopes of saving money by consolidating the smaller schools into larger ones. Those school closures did not happen because of the outcry from communities that said they value neighborhood schools, McMinimee said. Many of the budget cuts would center around making the most of the school buildings. A proposed split schedule would send kindergarten through second grades to school in the morning, with grades three through five attending class 12:30-5:30 p.m. Year-round schools would split the student body into fourths with students attending school for nine weeks on and three weeks off on a rotating

schedule from July 6 to June 25. This would ensure that school buildings were always being utilized, McMinimee said. “But that puts tremendous pressure on families because they have to find daycare,” he said. Cutting programs for students is another budget-saving option that would be discussed. McMinimee said this could include foreign languages, athletics, art and English, with reductions largely targeting electives. While the district would cut full programs, they would narrow down the choices students have by offering one or two choices. “The district in reality doesn’t have to provide electives,” McMinimee said. Those who oppose the bond and mill, however, are calling the school boards bluff. “I am absolutely willing to take the risk because history tells us those cuts will not happen; it’s a threat,” Boggs said. Parents in support of the measures said they are worried about the potential program cuts, split schedules and year round schools. “I’m worried about an exodus of high quality

teachers,” Peabody said. “I’m fearful that if it doesn’t pass, that our schools won’t be able to function the way they are. Our students are our future and we want to expand what we can give them.”

Vote yes on 3A and 3B for schools A publication of

Jeffco schools need more funding. Even some in the community who oppose Jefferson County’s 3A and 3B ballot issues this November readily acknowledge this as an undeniable reality. Colorado’s education funding has been falling since the 1980s. The National Center for Education Statistics reports that Colorado’s children receive $2,070 less annually for education than the national average. Where the state is failing, districts are turning to local taxpayers to bridge the everwidening funding gap. This November, Jeffco is asking for a $535 million bond (3B), which would provide money for improvements and repairs to schools, and a $33 million mill levy override (3A) to help with operational costs, including teacher and district staff pay. The question for Jeffco voters is not whether their schools need more funding, but whether these specific tax measures will accomplish what taxpayers hope they will. The editorial board at Colorado Community Media believes that — yes — this will be money well spent. Jeffco has a track record of accomplishing what it says it will. County voters last turned down a school bond in 2008, but the district came back to voters with a $324 million bond issue to make “safe and dry” repairs to schools, which passed in 2012. This summer, the district successfully completed all the facility repairs promised by that bond, and used an accompanying $38.5 million

OUR VIEW mill levy to help increase salaries for district teachers who had voluntarily taken pay cuts and freezes during the recession. The district has $800 million in facility costs to fix up or replace the district’s aging schools. This bond money will take a chunk out of that problem, with improvements and repairs to 110 schools and “major renovations and additions” to 45 other schools. As the amount of lead piping found in Jeffco schools over the summer strongly indicates, these are buildings in need of renovation. The $33 million mill levy would be an ongoing tax, helping to make Jeffco salaries more competitive, increase school security and provide mental health counselor assistance to all elementaries. It also will help offset state funding cuts, which are expected to continue for the foreseeable future. Critics have pointed out that Jeffco has empty seats at several facilities, and that the district has seen flat overall enrollment over the last few years — raising the question of why some of the bond money is earmarked for building new classrooms. The puzzle of where and how to make room for new students is a tough one, but with Colorado’s overall population still trending upwards, we think the district is right to be providing

newer and more ample classroom capacity. Accomplishing all of that will not be cheap. The total payback amount for the bond will approach $1 billion. Together, both tax measures would increase residential taxes by $49.44 a year for every $100,000 in home value. Non-residential properties would pay an additional $180.36 a year for every $100,000 of property value. These taxes will be paid by Jeffco property owners for the next 25 years. The good news is the district has structured the debt repayment to keep the overall school bond tax burden well within historic levels for property owners. School-based bond repayments will actually remain lower than they were 2009-2012. And the school bond tax burden will drop considerably lower in 2027, as older bonds are paid off. That said, both critics and current board members say they fully expect the district to have to ask taxpayers for additional bonds in years to come, long before 3B is paid off. What Colorado Community Media and taxpayers across the state would really like to see is a solution from state legislators, instead of leaving individual districts to beg for assistance, creating wide disparities in education levels. But because our children cannot wait for a solution from the state, we must do what we can, here and now, and continue to invest in the future. Vote yes on 3A and 3B.

WEST METRO AREA LETTERS TO THE EDITOR I’m voting yes on Wheat Ridge ballot question 2E, which makes me feel good about our city and its future. So, what is 2E? It’s a new, temporary 1/2 penny sales tax for four projects. It’s not a property tax. The sales tax is small, a nickel on a $10 purchase. There’s a “sunset” clause, so the tax will end at 12 years or sooner. Projects are carefully chosen: • Anderson Park — Much-needed updates to the aging Anderson building, improved fields, a replacement pavilion and parking lots to support festivals. • Wadsworth Boulevard — Funding to access over $30 million in state and federal grants. This will be used from 35th Ave to I-70 to relieve congestion, provide walkability and bikeability, and support local businesses. It’s important that Wheat Ridge invest in Wadsworth now. CDOT doesn’t have immediate plans to make these critical improvements, and CDOT would focus on moving cars, not accommodating our businesses. • Gold Line TOD at 52nd and Ward — I’m excited about “transit oriented development.” 2E will add sidewalks, pedestrian overpass, and traffic lights for safe access to the rail station. • Clear Creek Crossing – 2E will re-tool local road access to spur development of revenue generating projects at prime real estate at Youngfield and I-70.

Not a single item proposed by 2E is unnecessary. In fact, a citizen task force identified many millions of dollars more in unmet needs. 2E funds just the top four priorities. 2E is right-sized for Wheat Ridge. The impact to shoppers is very small, and anybody shopping in Wheat Ridge helps to pay. 2E is responsible, accountable, and transparent. The ballot language spells out exactly which projects will be funded. This same process, with a time-limited sales tax, was used successfully when Wheat Ridge built our Recreation Center and our City Hall addition. Finally, 2E has broad support from a coalition of neighbors, community and business leaders, and elected officials. I ask you to join us too by voting yes on 2E. Lloyd Levy, Wheat Ridge 3A and 3B make sense As a home owner, a small business owner (and yes, a mother) I will be voting yes on the Jeffco 3A/3B mill/bond ballot initiative. One of the main reasons is simple, it makes economic sense. Working in the financial services industry and being married to a man in the construction industry, I can tell you two things — borrowing costs are low (for the time being), and construction costs are doing nothing but rising.

In Jeffco, with approximately $800 million in needs to repair and build new facilities, waiting longer to take this action will do nothing but increase the price tag. The passing of this initiative will allow the district to make great strides in several areas. Jeffcopublicschools. org has details, but one of the most costly is the deferred maintenance that needs to be tended to on many of our buildings. As anyone knows, with an old house, come big repairs ... and the average age of Jeffco buildings is near 40 years. While I’d like to make a plea to the state of Colorado to be our knight in shining honor, and help ease our tight budgets, they are in no rush to help. In fact, did you know that 50 Colorado districts are going to voters to ask for more resources this November because of dwindling funding from the state? State funding for eduction is below the mandated level (per Amendment 23) and is expected to continue that way. And, though property taxes did indeed go up this year, those extra dollars did not go to education. It’s time that we as voters prioritize education funding, realizing that a strong school district improves not only the workforce of tomorrow but our home values today.

Taxes looking to soar The November ballot is coming for your wallet. The Jefferson County School Board is presenting a poorly conceived pair of ballot issues, 3A and 3B, that will cost taxpayers approximately a billion dollars over the course of the bond repayment due to back-loaded payments. The City of Arvada is proposing a 1/2 cent sales tax for road maintenance; according to some city council members the money is not really needed. Remember, the Arvada Center loses approximately $4 million a year. Are you OK with this? Next we have the state Ballot Issue 69 which proposes to have universal health. This will probably bankrupt the state, create medical tourism which will further burden the plan, and take approximately 10 percent of your money in additional taxes, as a start. This also applies to your Social Security payments after a certain amount. The law is nebulous and poorly written, at best. If you think health care is expensive now, wait until it is free! After removing all this additional money from your wallet I hope you have noticed the increase in the price of food and the general cost of living. Property taxes went up about 20 percent last year and more increases are expected as property values rise. Oooops there goes some more of your money. Please think carefully when considering your 2016 ballot and the issues presented to us. Can we really afford them? William F Hineser, Arvada Keep Colorado energetic With elections around the corner, it’s our responsibility to be knowledgeable about the policies our elected officials are proposing. This fall, Coloradoans must not forget about our energy industry and they should vote for candidates who support our oil and natural gas sector. The oil and gas industry has played such a positive role in our economy over the years. Attacking Colorado’s energy industry would cost thousands of jobs, billions of tax revenue, and put many hard-working Coloradans in a bad position. The oil and gas industry has contrib-

uted $25.8 billion every year to Colorado’s economy alone. Additionally, Colorado energy supports the careers of over 200,000 men and women. Will the candidates we elect support the industry that provides all these great jobs? The loss of these jobs would substantially hurt our nation and Colorado. We must support candidates who have strong domestic energy policies at the ballot box. As mentioned in the article “Truth is welcome in election season,” many fact-checkers are at work this election, making it easy to look up the candidates’ positions on energy. We simply can’t afford to weaken such a valuable industry to our state. Craig J. Bakken, Golden Vote for 3A/3B is vote for the future The future of our great state depends on where we choose to invest our money. That’s why I am voting YES on 3A/3B. Investing in our students in Jefferson County is part of the legacy I want to leave for this generation. As a single homeowner, I know that this bond and mill will make a difference for all children at a minimal cost of $4.12 per $100,000 of home value per month. My investment in public schools will help to ensure that buildings remain open and run more efficiently. As a Christian I am wanting to ensure that there is funding to invest in more counselors and in-school mental health programs to benefit our students and the entire Jeffco community. As a citizen I am realizing that the state budget challenges have hurt Jeffco, and our students have received $481 million less than was supposed to be budgeted during the last five years, creating a backlog of maintenance issues and classroom budget challenges. Looking at all the ways you can interpret this investment, the most important consideration is that this is about the students who will be our future leaders and citizens — let’s do right by them. Join me in voting yes on 3A and 3B and vote by Nov. 8. A true believer in the value of investing in Jeffco students, Beth Low, Westminster 3A/3B finishes what recall started Last year, Jefferson County School District went to the doctor and received a very serious prognosis. We were in termi-

nal state. Members of our school board were attacking our students, our teachers and administrators were seeking employment in other districts, and parents had become immune to the side effects of shock that accompanied news of each board meeting. So, we came together, found five new specialists and sought a cure – recall. It took hours and hours of intensive work, but together, we did it. The procedure was exhausting, so many of us took a wellearned nap to recuperate. Unfortunately, most of us are still asleep. We need to wake up. We have 3A/3B coming up on the ballot, and very few of us have done enough, or anything, to get it passed. Here’s the problem: It has to pass for us to see the full benefit of our recall efforts. We had the recall because we believed in the potential of our students and teachers. We tirelessly chose phenomenal candidates who have demonstrated their passion, intelligence, and skill as school board members. Now, we need to give them the tools necessary to keep growing our district into the powerful education system it can be. Either that, or we can face surgery. We can watch schools get closed down, communities become divided, and programs get cut. We can continue sending students into buildings that don’t pass basic warm, safe, and dry standards. We can watch our teachers and administrators move to districts where they are paid more and feel valued. Then, we can sit back and hope to survive the surgery while our students and teachers suffer through the side effects. It’s time. It’s time for you to volunteer, donate, and at a bare minimum, vote yes on 3A/3B. Nicole Head, Golden

Parent and teacher for 3A/3B I am a lifelong resident of Jefferson County, graduate of Jeffco Schools, social studies teacher in Jeffco and a parent to two Jeffco Public Schools students. I am also a supporter of the proposed bond and mill override. The average age of schools in the Jeffco School District is 45 years old. Many of these schools are in woeful condition and are in need of serious repair or upgrades. We can do this now if the mill and bond is passed, or we can do nothing and wait 10-15 years down the road when many of these schools will need to be replaced at far more the cost. Classrooms are in desperate need of additional funding as well. Schools and departments are allocated money each year to make copies for their classrooms over the course of the year, however, many schools run out of money to make copies before the school year is over. Because of this problem, many teachers pay for copies for the rest of the year out of their own pockets. In addition, because Jeffco is far behind other districts in terms of funding it is more difficult to attract and retain teachers as they will go to other districts because the pay and benefits are far superior. I know other teachers who have left to take jobs in surrounding districts because they will earn $10,000 more a year in those districts than they did here. However, if we pass 3A/3B, these things will not come to pass. For an additional $4.12 a month per $100,000 of your home value we can overcome these challenges. Please vote for our future. Vote for our kids. Vote yes on 3A/3B. Our students deserve it. Dale Munholland Arvada Letters continues on Page 16

Bad that big money influencing DA’s race It’s shocking to see that a New York billionaire, George Soros, is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on negative, misleading mailers and ads, designed to take out our district attorney, Pete Weir. Why? We have no idea. Soros won’t disclose his interests in Jefferson County, Colorado. Big money is a sad reality in American politics. But big, shadowy out-of-state money in a local district attorney’s race is unprecedented. There’s a hidden agenda at work here, and it smells. I’ve known Pete Weir for almost 20 years. His integrity, intelligence, character and skill as an attorney are second to none. He’s one of the few public servants in Colorado who is equally respected by Democrats and Republicans alike (he was appointed to the district court bench by Republican Gov. Bill Owens and served in the cabinet of Democratic Gov. Bill Ritter). People sometimes ask, “why don’t good people run for office anymore?” Well, they do — Pete Weir is one of them. He deserves our support. And George Soros should politely be asked to stay the heck out of Jeffco politics, unless he actually wants to move here. Rob Witwer, Former State Representative HD-25 Make schools work within their means I think the term “negative factor” is confusing. Many say schools are losing millions of dollars due to a negative factor; What does that mean? Think about it at a household level. You plan your annual budget with $1,000 for medical expenses, $1,500 for education expenses and $1,700 for the rest. You have no ability to go into debt. In year one, things work out exactly as planned. In year two you have more money and decide to make your education budget $2,000. As year two unfolds you realize your medical expenses (at the state level it

October 20, 2016 is cost of expanding Medicaid) will be $1,300. Now you have to make choices; the $1,700 budget includes your mortgage and utilities so you can’t cut it out. Instead you invent a negative factor and apply it to your education budget at -$300. So in year two the actual amount you spent on education still increased from $1,500 to $1,700 (versus your budgeted $2,000). You covered additional medical expenses instead of increasing your spending on education as much as you would’ve liked in year two. That exemplifies how the “negative factor” occurred in Colorado. Spending on public education has increased, but not as much as some would like. According to the election notice that we all received in Jeffco, spending increased 20 percent between 2012-13 and 2016-17 going from $617 to $745 million. The next time you hear “negative factor” you will know it means the cost of expanding Medicaid, not that education spending is down. Vote no on 3A and 3B to tell the school district a 20 percent increase in spending is enough while they practice financial accountability. Anne Warren, Littleton Will neighborhood school close? Do your children attend one of schools listed below? Allendale Elementary, Belmar Elementary, Bergen Valley Intermediate, Campbell Elementary, Colorow Elementary, Dutch Creek Elementary, Foothills Elementary, Fremont Elementary, Glennon Heights Elementary, Green Gables Elementary, Kullerstrand Elementary, Marshdale Elementary, Parmalee Elementary, Peck Elementary, Pennington Elementary, Pleasant View Elementary, Red Rocks Elementary, Slater Elementary, Stober Elementary, Stott Elementary, Vivian Elementary, Welchester Elementary and Wilmore Davis Elementary. These schools currently have or are projected to have less than 300 students. Why is that important? The district used 300 students in the initial facility plan as the cutoff to determine if a school should be closed. The Jeffco School Board is adamant about moving sixth-graders to

middle school. If 3B passes, it will just happen sooner than later. An addition, if 3B passes and sixth-graders are moved to middle school, the number of schools with less than 300 students increases to over 20 schools. That is more than 20 neighborhood schools that could potentially close. Let’s not rush to move sixth-graders to middle school without adequate community support and understanding of the consequences. If you value your neighborhood school, Vote no on 3B. Deb Eigenbrod, Littleton Marti Smith for Jeffco District 1 Commissioner Marti J. Smith is a Jeffco resident living in Colorado since 1985. Her campaign is about serving Jeffco residents and reaching for new ideas and solutions that serve community needs. Marti wants to protect Arvada residents and businesses from the negative impacts that building the proposed Jefferson Parkway toll highway would have on her neighbors. The proposed route is from SH-93 north of Golden across Jeffco to Indiana near the intersection with SH-72, then north to SH-128 near Interlocken. It would penetrate Leyden Rock, Leyden Ranch, and the residential part of Candelas, bringing noise and pollution of a four-lane high-speed superhighway while providing no convenient access to the highway for residents. The financial burden would come from neighbors of the Parkway having to pay increased property taxes to pay for it because of a drastic shortfall of toll revenue and no state or federal funds to pay for the “stand-alone” 10.5-mile highway. Dick Sugg, Golden

Jeffco’s 3A and 3B is Not Good For Kids We hear over and over that we need to vote for the bond and mill because previous generations did it for us so we should do it for our kids. But what they aren’t telling you is that saying yes to this plan does far more harm to our children than the good they will derive. We all agree Jeffco school buildings need updates but less than half of the proposed bond actually goes to fixing the identified needs. In addition, the financing scheme for the billion-dollar bond payoff significantly back-ends the payments and will hit just as today’s students get ready to enter the housing market. Think about your favorite 10-year-old. When they turn 20 or 25 and want to buy a house in the neighborhood in which they grew up their payments on these bond will be 3.5 times what we are paying the first couple of years. But the school board hopes you won’t notice that. We have all spent years sacrificing to be sure our children and grandchildren have the very best we can offer them. How then does this board think that we would consider burdening our children with the majority of the billion-dollar repayments? The only logical answer is they hope you won’t notice?! They are not telling you that we will make $20 million repayments for the first few years of the bond. Your ballot will say the largest annual payments will be $72 million a year. That again is 3.5 times the payments we are making. Who out there is willing to burden out children with paying off debt we are not willing to pay? Not me, I want my children to be able to afford to live in Jeffco when they get ready to buy their first home. I’ll be a No on 3A and 3B. Stephen R. Alley Jr., Lakewood

Unpresidential audio stirs up memories When I was 18, the summer between my freshman and sophomore years in college, I worked at the front desk of a manufacturing plant, and was the only woman on the site. One of my duties was to go into the production area and collect the time cards for payroll processing. One day the superintendent of the plant – a married man – was waiting for me in the back. He pushed me against the wall, trapped me with his body against mine, and pressured me for sex. I got away and, from then on, only went for the time cards when he was off the site. He continued to stalk me, sometimes following me on my way home to hang around outside the post office while I dropped off the company’s mail. But I didn’t tell anyone. Some years later, while vice president of an advertising agency, one of my clients was a wealthy real estate developer. We were driving to one of his job sites when he took his right hand off the steering wheel and reached across the car to grab my breast. I couldn’t move. I couldn’t speak. I wondered what I could possibly have done to invite this crude advance.

He was married, I was married. And yet I didn’t tell anyone. I was in a situation familiar to many women, especially in those days when it seemed more acceptable for men who believed they Andrea Doray wielded power to take advantage of ALCHEMY women. I didn’t want to risk offending a significant client of our agency, even though I was traumatized by these actions. He invited me to fly with him on his private jet to another of his properties, and when I declined, we lost the account. Having launched my business career in the ’80s, I have been subjected to these and other kinds of harassment for more than 30 years, sometimes from the men who directly employed me. So it’s no surprise to me when stories such as those about Bill Cosby, Roger Ailes and – God help us – the Republican nomi-

nee for president have come to light. What does surprise me is that 1) people are shocked by these revelations, 2) people believe that such behavior is uncommon, and 3) people continue to blame and shame the victims. I know why women stay silent. I know why they endure the objectification, the humiliation, the fear. It’s because this type of discrimination and harassment doesn’t only happen at the exalted levels of celebrity. It happens to wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, girlfriends and best friends in all walks of life. It’s because women are not believed or, worse, are believed but brushed aside as inconsequential. I read a comment in the New York Times the day the latest news broke about Donald Trump’s boasts of what is classified as sexual assault, and I paraphrase here: If you are female, you have had someone else grab a private part of your body without your consent. This is certainly true for me and most of my contemporaries. I think of the younger women in my life and can only fervently hope this is no longer true for them. And that’s why I’m telling my story

now. What makes anyone believe they have the right, the permission, to take away my control of who touches my own flesh? I believe – I have to believe – that this happens less frequently, less systematically than in the past, due in large part to the women who have come forward, the women who support them, and the decent, compassionate men – and they are in the majority – who are appalled and outraged by what goes on. It’s unlikely there will be any kind of justice for the women in Trump’s lewd legacy, but there can be a victory for the women and girls of the United States – and the people who love them – in the defeat of Donald Trump. Vote for anyone other than the most unqualified person, on any level, ever to seek leadership of the (still) greatest country on the Earth. Andrea Doray is a writer who is not surprised, sadly, that it took this long for people to become indignant about Trump’s treatment of women…or of most anyone else, for that matter.

Supernatural sleuths pursue ghosts

Paranormal investigators explore things that go bump in the night

On the case

By Tom Skelley tskelley@coloradocommunitymedia.com Even when she was by herself, Luana Kurz always knew she really wasn’t. “I never felt alone at nighttime,” she said. As a child Kurz didn’t want to believe in ghosts, despite mounting evidence that her family shared their home with other, invisible tenants. Candles blew out on their own. Cabinet doors, closed when the family went to bed, were open in the morning. Lying in bed one night when she was 17, Kurz received a visit from her grandfather. “I was lying on my side, I couldn’t move, and I felt cold,” Kurz said. “I felt a hand patting me, and I looked down and saw his hand, and I just felt his peace.” She remained in bed, motionless, until her father knocked on her door. “About an hour later, the phone rang and my father came to my room,” Kurz said. “He said ‘I just want to tell you that your grandpa died about an hour ago.’” Englewood resident Michelle Mayer always had a feeling her childhood home in Rochester, New York, was haunted, but her parents wouldn’t talk about her suspicions. When she moved to her own apartment in 1987, she didn’t suspect there were ghosts in the building. She knew. Lights turned themselves on and off. The phone rang spontaneously. She watched plates float around her kitchen. “I’d be cooking and the dish I was about to put the food on would move from one side of the sink to the other,” Mayer, 45, said. At 10 years old in Michigan, LeeAnna Jonas and two friends played with a Ouija board, hoping for a spooky thrill. They ended up screaming and running from the basement. “We all looked up and saw an apparition of a woman sitting in a rocking chair, with a baby in one arm and a knife in her other hand,” the 54-year-old Littleton resident said. “I always knew it was there,” Jonas said. “I just didn’t know how to find out for sure.” Now she knows. Jonas, Mayer and Kurz all spend their nights probing the noises, apparitions and other unexplained phenomena that keep others up at night. They offer their services for free, to maintain objectivity and propriety. “It’s kind of unethical to have a scared homeowner and charge them for your help,” Kurz said. “We’re out there to learn, we’re out there to help,” Jonas added. “The living and the dead.” ‘They reach out to you’ Kurz, 40, leads Colorado Shadow Investigations, a team of 10 to 12 people who feel connected to the afterlife and look for traces of it in the metro area. The team has performed approximately 200 investigations since its 2010 inception, relying on a combination of intuition and technology. The goal, Kurz said, is research rather than finding hard proof. “When I started out I just wanted to find that one piece of evidence, to prove it to the scientific community,” Kurz said, but the more she looked for evidence, the more elusive it became. “You can’t repeat results like you do with scientific research,” she said. “You can’t make an apparition walk the same way down a hallway.” As she got more seasoned, Kurz relied less on her tools than her senses. After more than 200 cases, she said her abilities have sharpened to the point that she can see, smell and hear ghosts, as well as sense their moods. She said the spirits she meets are almost always playful and positive. “Eventually I learned to open up,” she

Colorado Shadow Investigations at the Lumber Baron Inn By Tom Skelley tskelley@coloradocommunitymedia.com

Michelle Mayer, head of Full Moon Explorations, takes a stroll through Littleton Cemetery on Oct. 6. Mayer says paranormal investigations don’t require equipment beyond a camera and an audio recorder. Photo by Tom Skelley A 2005 photo taken by Michelle Mayer shows rising mists at the Central City Masonic cemetery. A formation in the center, somewhat skeletal in appearance, appears to be rising from a headstone. Courtesy photo said. “When they know you can communicate, they reach out to you.” “Reaching out” has never been a problem for Jonas, who says she and her partners at Spirit Realm Investigative Project “always find something” on the 50-plus investigations they’ve conducted. A bigger problem, she said, is getting a ghost to back off. On her first investigation with partner Lolli Hughes, the duo explored a historic warehouse in Central City. The building’s original owner was reputed to have traveled to Haiti to dabble in voodoo in the early 1900s. Jonas said he brought something back with him, something that attacked Hughes. “She said it felt like something was squeezing her spine,” Jonas said. “We had to get her out of the building as soon as possible.” Like Kurz, Mayer said she’s performed more than 200 investigations, but hasn’t had any violent interactions with spirits. “I haven’t had any that were what I’d call scary. Creepy, I’d say maybe 1 percent. Grumpy, which I define as having an attitude but harmless, I’d say about 20 percent,” she said. “The only time I’ve ever screamed was in Cañon City.” Mayer and her team, Full Moon Explo-

rations, were touring the former women’s prison, notorious for the restless spirits of former inmates. Wrapping things up for the night, she picked up her laptop. “There was a cockroach about four inches long under it,” she said. Opening minds, not changing them Mayer welcomes skeptics to accompany her group on investigations. She lets them use audio recorders and cameras she provides so they know the information hasn’t been manipulated. Still, she says, not everyone can be convinced that spirits walk among them. “I won’t say we’ve turned a lot of skeptics into believers,” Mayer said, “but maybe we’ve opened their minds up.” The peaceful connection Kurz feels to the afterlife is reason enough to continue her work. Whatever others think of it, she said, isn’t her concern. “For me, this has opened up another world,” Kurz said. “I don’t worry about other people’s opinions.” All three women added that while they are happy to share their findings, convincing skeptics isn’t part of the job. They leave that to others. “They won’t believe it,” Jonas said, “until it happens to them.”

The Valentine Suite in Denver’s Lumber Baron Inn is still and dimly lit on Oct. 4, as Kurz and partners Rob and April Schmidt attempt to contact a pair of local celebrities. The building, now a bed and breakfast, was a run-down apartment building on Oct. 12, 1970, when Cara Lee Knoche and her friend Marianne Weaver were murdered there. The murder was never solved and, in the years since the murder, several encounters with the girls have been documented by other visitors, tenants and owners. “Hello to anyone who’s here right now,” Kurz says. Rob places a Rem pod, a device that lights up in response to electromagnetic energy, on the room’s bed. Everyone introduces themselves as Kurz turns on a Spirit Box, an AM radio frequency scanner that amplifies the sounds it picks up. Some of the noises come from radio towers, but some, the investigators say, come from beyond. “Seth and Steve, are you with us?” Kurz asks, referring to two ghosts she says have accompanied them on investigations over the years. The Spirit Box buzzes as it keeps scanning, like a radio with a dial that never stops turning. Speakers attached to the box emit snippets of words. A sound that could be “Seth” pops out amid the other word fragments, moments later a hard “e” sound that sounds like “Steve” is heard. For more than an hour, Kurz and Schmidt ask Cara Lee and Marianne to speak up or touch the REM pod and light it up. But if the girls are in the room tonight, they aren’t feeling friendly. A trip the ballroom upstairs yields similar results, though Rob saw a shadow pass across a grid of laserprojected light on the wall. Eventually, the team packs up in deference to the inn’s paying guests. Kurz and April discuss theories for the unusually uneventful evening. Maybe the girls, who saw their share of reporters pass through Knoche’s apartment after it became a crime scene, were reluctant to appear in front of another one. Or maybe, they suggest, the girls just weren’t in the mood. “They’re just like us, really,” April says. “Sometimes we don’t feel like talking either.”

Voters to decide on minimum wage increase Single-payer health care, aid in dying and primary elections are among ballot issues By Kyle Harding kharding@coloradocommunitymedia.com Small business owner Janelle Sullivan believes Colorado’s minimum wage should be raised but says a proposed increase on this year’s ballot goes too far. “It’s too much, too fast,” said Sullivan, who has owned Hot Pots Studio on Main Street in Littleton since 2003. But Patty Kupfer, campaign manager at Colorado Families for a Fair Wage, said her group worked with small businesses before settling on the phased-in $12-per-hour goal, believing it will have minimal impact on employment levels and prices of goods and services. “There were tough conversations around that,” she said, acknowledging that many activ-

ists wanted to push for a $15 wage floor. Amendment 70, one of nine statewide ballot questions, would incrementally raise the minimum wage to $12 per hour by January 2020, with continuing increases to adjust for cost of living. It would initially raise it from the current $8.31 per hour to $9.30 on Jan. 1, with 90-cent increases on Jan. 1 of 2018, 2019 and 2020. The wage would continue to be adjusted annually based on the consumer price index for the state. The minimum wage for tipped workers is $3.02 below the minimum wage. That would stay the same, meaning the minimum wage for tipped workers would rise to $8.98 in 2020. The current minimum wage of $8.31 amounts to about $17,000 per year for full-time workers. It has risen from $6.85 since 2006 to account for increases in the Consumer Price Index. The wage hike has drawn opposition from chamber of commerce groups and restaurant Ballot continues on Page 22

METRO AREA TO VOTE ON RENEWING SCFD Voters in the seven-county Denver metro area are faced with the choice of whether to renew the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, which levies a 0.1 percent sales tax across the area to support cultural facilities. Originally approved in 1988, the SCFD was renewed in 1994 and 2004. It is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2018. A renewal would extend it until June 30, 2030. The area includes Denver, Arapahoe, Douglas, Jefferson, Adams, Broomfield and Boulder counties. Government agencies and nonprofit organizations within

the district whose primary purpose is “to provide for the enlightenment and entertainment of the public through the production, presentation, exhibition, advancement or preservation of art, music, theatre, dance, zoology, botany, cultural history or natural history” can apply for funding from the district. More than 300 organizations throughout the area receive funding from the district. Recipients include: • Golden History Museums • Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities • Westminster Historical

Society • Arapahoe Philharmonic • Littleton Symphony Orchestra • Hudson Gardens and Events Center • Englewood Cultural Arts Center Association • Heritage Fine Arts Guild of Arapahoe County • South Suburban Parks and Recreation Culture and Enrichment Division • Highlands Ranch Concert Band • Lone Tree Arts Center — Kyle Harding

Why should voters choose you for this office?

How can the two major parties better work together to ensure progress in Washington?

What can be done to improve the nation’s health care system?

What is your position on immigration reform?

How will the result of the presidential race affect your ability to represent your district?

Simply put, I would best represent my neighbors in Colorado’s 7th Congressional District in Washington. My opponent advertises himself as “our voice,” but his voting record betrays his true allegiance. In Washington, he is a career politician and loyal party man who votes in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi. He doesn’t stand for veterans. He doesn’t recognize the threats facing our local communities. He doesn’t appreciate the enormity of nearly $20 trillion in national debt. I do.

Congress should start the next Congress with an issue that has bipartisan support as a positive first step, establishing trust and a way ahead. In my opinion, the first order of business should be replacing the 15-year old Authorization of Use of Military Force with legislation invoking the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide and establishing a framework for enforcing it. Confronting the ongoing genocide in the Middle East should garner unanimous support.

At approximately 18.6 percent of GDP, health care is not only a major economic driver but it is also the most corrupt sector of our economy. Obamacare is a failure because it forces more people into a hopelessly corrupt and broken system. What is needed is fundamental market reform combined with structural mechanisms empowering patients to make their own health care decisions.

As the son of immigrants, I respect and value the diversity that immigration adds to our country and the important roles immigrants have played throughout our history. As a former Army officer, however, I know uncontrolled borders are an ongoing national security crisis. Secure borders must be a top priority in the next Congress, as they are necessary to ensure the safety of our local communities.

Should I be fortunate enough to win this November, the outcome of the presidential race will have little bearing on my approach to representing my constituents. I will always fight to make Coloradans’ best interests the focus in Washington, regardless of which candidate is in the White House. I will work with members of all parties at all levels of government to enact important legislation, but I will not compromise the core values of District 7.

I am the only candidate with a complete, detailed and doable plan to permanently balance the federal budget and pay off our debt. Growing federal debt and liabilities are a great and increasing risk to the future survival of our republic. All the details are on my website.

Elect Libertarians, who share the sensible positions of both parties without the bad positions. My website provides detailed Libertarian positions on most of the major issues.

Obamacare is a failure. It forces you to buy inferior health insurance for an excessive price, continuing the trend of government making health care less affordable. Government has wrecked and distorted our health care system for more than five decades, and has caused most of the huge increases in health care costs in that time. My website lists 10 major steps we can take for an immediate new direction in health care.

We should welcome millions of added legal immigrants each year and provide a quick path to legal status and eventual citizenship for most of those here illegally.

As both Republicans and Democrats in office have been ignoring our Constitution, having a Libertarian who can stand up to either party will be a good thing if we elect either a Democrat or Republican for president. Of course, if Libertarian Gary Johnson is elected, it will be excellent to have Libertarians in Congress supporting him.

Since I was elected I have never lost sight of the number one reason why I do this job: to help the hard-working folks of the 7th Congressional District. I want to be reelected because there’s more work to be done to improve the economy and income growth, reduce the burden of student loan debt, campaign finance reform, explore human space travel to Mars and much more.

I will continue to reach across the aisle to work on legislation that improves the lives of the American people. In the 113rd Congress, 221 out of 275 bills I cosponsored were bipartisan and I was ranked the 23rd most bipartisan member of Congress by the Lugar Center and Georgetown University McCourt School.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is improving and enhancing the health of millions of Americans. As the legislation continues to be implemented, there are a few legislative fixes that I support including but not limited to the following: a two-year delay on high-cost insurance plans otherwise known as the “Cadillac Tax,” a two-year delay of the 2.3 percent excise tax on gross sales known as the “Medical Device Tax,” and a health insurance measure which would help reduce premiums.

I strongly support comprehensive immigration reform and believe we need to establish a legal path to citizenship for people who have not committed any crimes, are paying taxes and are learning English. This includes securing our borders, cracking down on organized crime and human trafficking, and streamlining and modernizing the visa process to hire specific or temporary workers legally and efficiently.

We have come a long way since the depths of the Great Recession. Our economy continues to grow stronger but there is still more work to do for the hard working people in the middle. I believe Hillary Clinton will ensure forward progress on many of the initiatives that will have a tangible impact on the people of the 7th Congressional District, including reducing the burden of student loan debt, enacting campaign finance reform, increasing family leave and focusing on equal pay for equal work. I am committed to continue to work as hard as I can for the people of the 7th District.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

·How will you help address the county’s growing senior population?

What other issue would you want to focus on while in office?

·What else should voters know about you?

By promoting a smart, fiscally responsible and efficient County Government we ensure a vibrant future for citizens and businesses. More progressive ideas and transparent communications will foster seamless processes and raise the expectation to best practices in county government. I care about: open space, balanced community, senior services, affordable housing, job creation, self-sustaining families, fiscal responsibility, conservation and managed growth.

I learned quickly as a business analyst that potential customers will tell you what they want if you ask. I have modeled that successful approach to listen to customers, be honest, put the customer first, and do what you say you will do. In turn, I have supported my teams with the same commitment. As a commissioner I will follow the same values and behaviors to support Jeffco citizens and businesses.

We must support our seniors with options and resources, as well as guidance for family caregivers for their parents and relatives. Their quality of life is dependent on appropriate services to age safely in place in an accessible, affordable, and familiar environment. The development of new affordable senior housing is needed to transition through the stages of life. The county can provide direct services as well as support agencies that care for our seniors.

When elected I would strive to create a SMART government plan that would raise the transparency of the commissioners’ office through better technology and seamless communications both internal and external. Today Jeffco has fallen behind Adams, Boulder and Denver Counties in executing best practices for communicating with their citizens and businesses.

I have decided to run for Jefferson County Commissioner because I see opportunity where others see the roadblock. I have significant education, leadership experience and budget management to be the preferred choice. As your county commissioner I will work with community leaders, citizens, city managers and the other commissioners to plan, direct and deliver on the untapped potential to help the county, businesses and citizens to thrive.

I have the wherewithal it takes to do the job. Jefferson County is a big county to cover and not only do I have the energy to fully represent the entire county, I also have the experience and background in real world issues. Plus I grew up here and I know the heartbeat of this community. Having that pulse on the community helps me govern as commissioner.

I was elected by my peers as the Assistant Leader in the State House when I was in my freshman year. Then, 10months after being appointed to serve on the Board of County Commissioners, I was elected Chair.

The best way to handle any issue is through collaboration and by being a good listener. I don’t assume I know more about the issue than the people living it. I will work with the senior community to best understand their issue and then help them tackle it.

I believe the transportation and economic development are two of the issues we need to focus on. A true balance is the backbone to every county and we need to make sure that we are attracting a vibrant business population while making it easy for all to live and move into Jefferson County.

I am a native to Colorado and have lived in Jeffco since I was 10 years old. Jeffco is in the fiber of who I am. I have raised my children here and our family business is located here Jeffco is my lifestyle and I take great honor in serving my fellow citizens on the Board of County Commissioners.

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

·How will you help address the county’s growing senior population?

What other issue would you want to focus on while in office?

·What else should voters know about you?

I was raised in Jeffco and my wife and I are raising our three boy here so I will work to continue to have Jeffco be a great place to live and raise children. In addition I’ve spent 25 years in the private sector helping businesses create good jobs and helping grow the economy so we can live, play and retire in this amazing place.

We had a fast growing company that wanted a loan for additional capital to continue to support expansion. Because of their fast growth they were a risky investment but needed the capital to expand. My team worked to understand the concerns of the investors, teamed with the client to develop a solid presentation which addressed the investors’ concerns and the business loan was approved. It was a team effort that lead to success for everyone.

I’m excited to work with the community to make sure that resources are available to support the residents who have lived and worked to make Jefferson County great. With the rapid appreciation of homes, it’s hard to find housing that is low maintenance and meets seniors’ needs. I will work to make sure seniors voices are heard as we plan for development and that the resources they need are easily accessible.

I believe we have the world’s best playground in our backyard. I’ll work to make sure we protect our great resources and balance that with the expected rapid growth of our population. We must continue to invest in open space, reduce regulation and invest in infrastructure so we can bring good paying jobs to Jefferson County. I want this to be a place where our children and grandchildren can afford to raise their families.

I’m a Jeffco graduate and our three boys will be as well. We chose to raise our children here and plan to retire here. We envision being able to enjoy this great playground with our grandchildren. I appreciate the great leadership we have in Jefferson County and the employees who want to serve citizens and look for ways to be more efficient. I’ll continue to work hard for Jeffco residents.

I am proud of my record as a county commissioner. I have worked hard to stabilize the county’s Budget, and improve financial accountability. I have advocated for providing competitive salaries to help retain Sheriff’s deputies. I have a vision for Jeffco that includes balancing a strong economy with responsible environmental stewardship.

I believe in bringing people together to solve problems and create opportunities. I helped form a Sustainability Commission to identify ways residents and businesses can conserve energy or recycle, it is made up of volunteers from private business and government. They have partnered with Excel Energy and are developing an action plan to help businesses and citizens in Jeffco save money on energy bills. I am excited about the cost savings this could bring to local businesses and residents.

We have to be innovative in providing for the needs of the growing senior population. A single solution will not address every challenge, because the situation for each senior, and their family, is unique. To meet these diverse needs, it is important to partner with the faith-based community as well as non-profit organizations, such as the Senior Resource Center. We also need to leverage technology to provide services, such as transportation and meals in a more efficient manner.

Balancing economic development and protecting the land that makes Jefferson County special has to be a priority. We need a strong economy with high paying jobs, and Jefferson County is now recognized as a great place to do business. However, there is also a strong preservation ethic in Jeffco. We want to be sensible in how we grow. I will work hard to protect neighborhoods, make sure we invest in infrastructure and maintain a strong open space program.

I am a long time resident, and my family calls Jeffco home. This is a special community and that is why I decided to run for county commissioner four years ago. I work with volunteers on many different issues and every day I am impressed with the commitment my neighbors have to their community. It has been an honor to serve; and, if re-elected, I will continue to work hard to keep Jeffco special.

and hotel organizations, as well as some small businesses. Sullivan employs three to five part-time workers at any given time who are paid between $10 and $13 per hour. Although some of her employees make above what the proposed minimum wage would be, there would be a secondary effect, she believes, leading to her higher-paid employees wanting to be paid more as well. She often employs students on a temporary basis and said she may not be able to hire as many workers if the wage rises. Economist Eric Fruits, in an analysis prepared for freeenterprise think tank Common Sense Policy Roundtable, wrote that the increase would decrease employment by 2 percent by 2020. However, an analysis by two University of Denver faculty members, economist Jack Strauss and graduate school of social work professor Jennifer Greenfield, disputes this, citing a 2015 paper that found a minimal effect on employment rates from rising minimum wages over 15 years. Here’s a look at the eight additional questions that made the ballot: Amendment 69: ColoradoCare Amendment 69 would establish a statewide single-payer health care system called ColoradoCare. The system would be funded by new income taxes of 3.33 percent on employees and 6.67 percent on employers. It would be governed by a

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

What steps should your office take to keep up with shifting legal landscape surrounding marijuana?

How best should the First Judicial District use diversion courts, such as those for drug users or veterans?

Crime rates ticked upwards last year after years of decline. As DA, how would you respond?

I am running to bring the necessary reform to the criminal justice system and prevent future crime. Americans across the country agree that we have gone too far in terms of mass incarceration, the warehousing of the mentally ill, and the failure to treat those suffering from addiction and yet change is slow. I’m coming from the outside to change the system and stop spending so incredibly much money in the process.

I learned leadership leading convoys through Baghdad looking to find and stop Iraqi torture camps. I learned leadership means taking responsibility at all times, and always leading from the front by example. My greatest accomplishment isn’t the lives I saved or the thousands of cases I have prosecuted and defended. My greatest accomplishment is that every single one of the men and women who went out with me came home alive.

The voters of Jefferson County solidly approved the legalization of marijuana and it is up to the DA to respect and enforce that choice. Marijuana must now be regulated, just as alcohol is regulated, and we need to resist the attempts by many in the criminal justice system to act like marijuana should still be illegal. Our focus on marijuana must be ensuring its safety and keeping it away from children.

Diversion courts are absolutely essential towards stopping the incarceration of those needing treatment for addiction and mental health issues. It’s incredible that so many judges, county commissioners, and other interested parties have worked so hard to bring about these courts. Now, we need to adequately fund them so the diversion courts can be greatly expanded and DAs need to be leading that fight to get state funding. Diversion courts need to go to the next level.

DAs have taken credit for the 30 year drop in crime but merely demanded more resources and higher sentences whenever crime rises. That has to stop. Addressing the massive increase in sexual assaults over the last few years will be my priority. We still fail to adequately make people feel truly heard in reporting sexual assault, to address rape culture, and we fail in having victims believe in the certainty of prosecution of those crimes.

I lead the finest District Attorney’s Office in Colorado. With 37 years of criminal justice experience, I distinguish between good citizens who have made a mistake and criminals who threaten our community. The result is aggressive prosecution for some, while diversion and problem solving courts are appropriate for others. Special emphasis is placed on protecting our most vulnerable citizens, children and senior citizens. Community outreach and education help prevent victimization and enhance public safety.

Human trafficking, the sexual and commercial exploitation of young women, will not be tolerated in Jefferson County. I established a Human Trafficking Unit in the District Attorney’s Office dedicated to rescuing at risk girls and prosecuting their predators. This is the only unit in a DA’s office in Colorado dedicated exclusively to eradicating human trafficking. I was also a leader in establishing a Veterans’ Treatment Court and an Adult Mental Health Court.

The DA’s office continues to work closely with local law enforcement agencies in separating lawful users from those who abuse the law with illegal grows and distribution. The impact of legalization on juveniles is concerning. The data regarding the adverse consequences of marijuana on juveniles continues to develop. I am leading an effort focused on juvenile substance abuse that will focus on appropriate education, intervention and prevention of drug use by our kids.

Diversion programs within the District Attorney’s Office are used extensively and are extremely effective for appropriate offenders. Juvenile, adult and veterans’ diversion programs combine accountability with services while minimizing consequences for criminal behavior. The problem solving courts, including Drug Recovery Court, Adult and Juvenile Mental Health Courts, and Veterans’ Treatment Court, focus on the factors that lead to criminal activity, including substance abuse and mental health disorders, by providing treatment and counseling.

A multi-faceted approach helps ensure a safe community. Aggressive prosecution, problem solving courts, diversion programs, and community outreach address crime in our community. Mental health and substance abuse issues will continue to be addressed. Partnerships with law enforcement, forged over years of working together are essential. I also represent Colorado’s prosecutors on the Colorado Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice focusing on systemic criminal justice issues, including crime rates.

21-member elected board of trustees. The election procedure will be determined by an interim 15-member board appointed by state legislative leadership and the governor. Parker activist Richard Turnquist was one of the early opponents of Amendment 69, registering the Committee to Stop Colorado Care in November 2015. “It represents a massive increase in government and in our state income tax burden,” he said. Turnquist is also skeptical of the quality of single-payer health care. The Colorado Medical Society board of directors also voted to oppose ColoradoCare, citing “complexity (and) uncertainty.” The measure has also split the left, with NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado coming out against it in June, citing concerns the state constitution ban on public funding for abortion would limit access to it. Morgan Carroll, the Democratic challenger to incumbent Mike Coffman in the 6th Congressional District, also declined to support ColoradoCare, saying rising health care costs must be solved at the national level. Democratic House District 38 hopeful Robert Bowen is one of a handful of candidates in the state actively supporting Amendment 69. “I think it’s something we ought to be doing, and it’s in the party platform,” he said. Bowen said he believes the system would actually decrease health costs for businesses but he said the health insurance industry wields a lot of power in the state. Proposition 106: Aid in dying Proposition 106 would allow

a terminally-ill person with a prognosis of six months or less to live to self-administer aid-in-dying medication. The proposition would create the Colorado End-of-Life Options Act. In order to obtain the medication, the patient’s terminal prognosis must have been confirmed by his or her primary physician as well as a consulting physician, and the patient must be determined to be mentally capable, voluntarily express a wish to receive the medication and be a Colorado resident 18 or older. The measure also makes it a felony to tamper with a request for aid-in-dying medication or knowingly coerce a terminally-ill person to request it, and also prohibits insurers from issuing policies with conditions about whether people can request the medication. Littleton clinical social worker Libby Bortz, who used to teach biomedical ethics, said she strongly favors the act, an opinion formed by her experience working with terminally ill people. “We are able to help our pets when they’re suffering,” she said. “Why we can’t help a human being is beyond me.” The Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University has opposed the measure, saying it doesn’t have necessary safeguards. “It opens the door for insurance companies and government to be invloved in everybody’s end-of-life decisions,” Director Jeff Hunt said. Hunt said he and the Centennial Institute also oppose assisted suicide on philosphical grounds. If Proposition 106 passes, Colorado would join Oregon, Washington, Vermont, Montana and California as states that allow

terminally-ill people to end their lives. Only Oregon and Washington passed those laws by ballot initiative. Proposition 107: Presidential Primary Election Proposition 107 would reestablish the state’s presidential primary elections. Colorado held presidential primaries in 1992, 1996 and 2000, but has used the caucus system since. Both Republican and Democratic voters criticized the caucus this year as being chaotic, and many Republican voters were upset that the party did not conduct a straw poll to determine the preferred presidential candidate. Proposition 107 would also allow participation by unaffiliated voters. Proposition 108: Unaffiliated voter participation in primary elections Proposition 108 would open Colorado’s primary elections to unaffiliated voters. Under current law, a voter must be affiliated with a political party to vote in that party’s primary. Amendment T: No exception to involuntary service Amendment T would amend the state Constitution, removing an exception allowing the use of involuntary servitude as a punishment for crime. This could be interpreted to prohibit work requirements in the criminal justice system. Amendment U: Exempt possessory interests from property tax Amendment U would eliminate property tax for businesses and individuals who derive a benefit of $6,000 or less from the use of government-owned real property

and adjust the exemption amount every two years to keep up with inflation. Currently, the state does not tax government-owned property but does impose property tax on those who rent, lease or have other rights to use a government property, such as cattle-grazing rights. Amendment 71: Raise the bar for constitutional amendments Amendment 71 would create new requirements for placing a constitutional initiative on the ballot. Currently, to get a citizen initiative, backers must collect enough signatures to equal 5 percent of the votes cast in the most recent election for Secretary of State in a six-month period. In 2016, the requirement was 98,492 signatures. Amendment 71 would require that some of the signatures be collected in each of the state’s 35 Senate districts, in the amount of 2 percent of the registered voters in that district. It would also require a 55 percent super-majority of votes to adopt a change to the Constitution, rather than the current simple majority. Amendment 72: Increase in tobacco tax Amendment 72 would raise the state tax on cigarettes from 84 cents to $2.59 and increase the tax on other tobacco products from 40 percent of the retail price to 62 percent. The revenue would be distributed to various health programs that are already funded by tobacco taxes, as well as research grants studying tobacco-related health issues, tobacco-use prevention programs and others.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

How can the two major parties better work together to ensure progress at the Capitol?

What can be done to ensure the metro area’s transportation system is able to keep up with the growing population?

What issue deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016?

I am not business as usual, as has been the case for the past 80 years in politics. Taking on this position will be a major pay cut for me, and I feel I need to go into this office and begin to make a disturbance within the political establishment. Those in office are making laws to take our hardearned money and force more invasions into our homes than ever before. This needs to end.

My business is to help those who want to be selfemployed get their business going. Or those who need the freedom a car gives into a car. Or if their bills have piled up, I get them on the right track, for proper spending, and into a better place. This can be applied to a government that just keeps spending money, and in actuality needs to be trimmed down, and begin to take cuts. Small business is what’s needed in this state, not more government.

They can’t. They answer to those above them in the party, following party lines, and their political contributors. We need regular citizens, willing to take time out of their lives, to go down and represent we the citizens.

We need to get independent analysis done, and have small businesses jump in and begin to make the decisions about our roads. By the time a governmental committee brings up the bill, and the committee votes to bring it to the floor, and then it’s voted on, the small problem has become a bigger one, and now another committee must vote on an extension or a budget increase just to fix the nowbigger problem. Government is too antiquated and slow to adjust.

Colorado needs to become independent of federal money, as soon as possible. The Fed is going to have some big changes happening soon, and these changes mean a Fed that will be looking to states to step up and save it from its own bad spending decisions. If the state of Colorado can become financially independent of federal money now, it won’t need to accept the terms and earmarks associated with that federal money, which can include the Fed having the ability to take resources that it does not own – water, land, etc. — to sustain itself.

I’ve been honored to serve the citizens and businesses of this district and this state well during my two sessions in the Senate. I’m endorsed by multiple business organizations because they know I understand what it takes to get things done! I believe that parents know what’s best for their children and business owners know what’s best for their business, and the less interference, regulation and taxes imposed on us by the government, the better.

In 2016 I was named as Vice Chair of the Senate Business, Labor & Technology Committee. This was an honor given to me by our caucus leadership, in recognition of my leadership skills and my good working relationship with both the Republicans and the Democrats on that committee.

A split legislature is key to the parties working better together. When Republicans control one chamber, and the Democrats control the other, every bill, by design, has to be bipartisan. I worked very closely with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle previously, and I have a good working relationship with them. If either party wins both chambers, then we will see an onslaught of “statement bills” to the detriment of “working together.”

CDOT must answer for their use of tax dollars collected but not used on roads and bridges. Every tax dollar collected for oads must be spent on roads and bridges, not “transit” projects. And we need to find a sustainable source of funding for transportation that can’t be used for anything other than roads and bridges. I would consider a transport impact fee on new developments.

Construction defect litigation reform. Colorado is facing an affordable housing crisis. First-time, lowincome, veteran and senior home buyers are being hit the hardest. The building of multipurpose housing needs to start again, and for that to happen, we must give the insurance companies some assurance that they won’t be sued unless there is a serious problem with construction. The past two bills on this topic were killed by the Democrats in the House.

In my previous experience as a member of the Colorado Senate, all eight of the bills that I carried/ sponsored that got enacted into law received bipartisan support. I have proven repeatedly during my time on the Arvada City Council and in the Senate that I have collaborative abilities and I am able to represent the main sentiments and preferences of this community.

The most recent example of most significant impact was the announcement (as reported in the media) that one of my bills, the Colorado School Counselor Corps grant program, helped keep almost 1,000 at-risk students in school and send more of them to college. The program allowed schools to lower their student-to-counselor ratio, the dropout rate decreased, and by keeping kids from dropping out, the program saved taxpayers more than $319 million.

The newly elected officials have to demonstrate immediate willingness to put aside whatever obligations they feel toward their respective parties, and just consider the best interests of ALL constituents and Colorado residents. This collaborative ability has been a hallmark of my political career.

While the metro area probably has the most immediate transportation needs (due to population and heavy usage), we need to make sure that we consider the needs of the entire state as we allocate our limited financial resources. And we need to find creative ways to increase those resources. I am willing to look at public-private partnerships, tolls and even vehicle-miles-traveled fees.

I would like to see the legislature find a way to agree on the re-categorization of the hospital provider fee, so that the state could put those funds toward transportation and education needs. We also need to remain aggressive in our efforts to address the public schools’ “negative factor” and make sure that we provide quality education for all our children, regardless of zip code.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

How can the two major parties better work together to ensure progress at the Capitol?

What can be done to ensure the metro area’s transportation system is able to keep up with the growing population?

What issue deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016?

I have heard clearly from those in my district that they want a Representative who is accessible, reasonable and who works across party lines to get things done. I have demonstrated my commitment to those 2 promises. I hold town meetings, community coffees, walk and knock on doors and am out in the community. I am a pragmatic, common sense policymaker that finds common ground with other legislators to get things done-not just talk!

I heard about technology at NCAR that can predict the intensity and direction of complex wild land fires 12-18 hours ahead of time. I led a bi-partisan group of legislators to bring this technology to Colorado, potentially saving millions of dollars each year. The effective use of this technology does not just benefit those in fire zones. Reducing the number of homes lost to fires reduces the insurance cost for all home owners in Colorado.

We have real problems that need real solutions. You need to start with candidates that are inclined to work with others. Voters need to reward candidates that can play well with others in the “sand box.” Legislators need to hear from their constituents that working together and finding common ground is their expectation. Since being elected, I’ve worked in a bipartisan manner to get things done for the people of Colorado.

Our transportation system struggles with keeping up with the current population, much less a growing population. I support a multitude of efforts including the use of public transit, Bus Rapid Transit and light rail, car pools and efficient cars. I led efforts in demanding transparency in Public Private Partnerships and supported legislation asking the public to extend the TREX bonds for future projects.

At this point in time it looks like the state budget will be a primary issue in the 2017 session. Revenue forecasts indicate that we will be confronted with difficult decisions about cuts in important services. We need to address our budgetary difficulties by looking at solutions such as moving the Hospital Provider Fee into an enterprise. That would free up general fund dollars for needs such as education, transportation and mental health.

House District 23

October 20, 2016

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader:

How can the two major parties better work together to ensure progress at the Capitol?

How can the metro area’s transportation system keep up with the growing population?

What issue deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016?

I have the right life experience to accurately represent the vast majority of the people in the district. I’m also an independent thinker, not beholden to anyone.

When I was rotating out of my 1st Marine Corps job, one of my squad leaders gave me one of two Eagle Globe and Anchor pins that his grandfather carried on Guadalcanal and told me I was one of the finest leader’s he’s ever known. The book “One Bullet Away: The making of a Marine Corps Officer” talks about my impact on the platoon I led.

By drowning out the noise of special interest groups and political parties in order to reach compromises that work for the people of Colorado — not political ideologues or a small group of well-funded, connected interests.

We need to look at several solutions. We will need to generate more revenue — either by a modest increase in sales tax or gas taxes or a combination of both. We also need to look at a bond initiative that has been put forth by Republicans in the past. We also incentivize companies to encourage telecommuting. We should also look towards continuing to improve our mass transit network.

We have roughly 1 million people with mental disabilities and substance abuse issues in the state of Colorado. Epidemic? We need to figure out how we are going to stem the tide of mental disabilities and substance abuse. We will need common sense legislation to deal with this issue. A little pain in the short-term to pay for prevention, treatment and remediation will pay huge dividends in the future.

Colorado has a bright future, but we face big challenges in education, energy, transportation, housing, retirement security, economic inequality, rapid growth, and more. We need a representative ready to roll up his sleeves and get to work on day one, and I believe my experience as an engineer, my work at the Capitol, and my involvement in this community since 2005 make me the best candidate for the job.

In 2013, I helped Rep. John Buckner (D-Aurora) and Rep. Clarice Navarro (R-Pueblo) forge a bipartisan compromise to require more accountability for English-language-learner programs in schools and provide more professional development to teachers. We got past the partisan politics together and came up with a good piece of legislation that earned significant bipartisan support.

Most people don’t realize how much bipartisanship we already have in Colorado. In 2013, 95 percent of the bills signed by the governor were passed with bipartisan support. Still, there are some significant differences of opinion on many policies. We must all be patient and willing to listen to different perspectives. Neither party can claim 100 percent of the good ideas.

We unfortunately do not have the revenue to adequately invest in our transportation infrastructure, let alone our public education system and other priorities. Colorado’s government is already pretty lean. While we must always strive to do better, we must not pretend that cutting more waste cover our revenue shortfall. We need a serious conversation in this state about the services we expect of our government and how much we’re willing to pay for them.

Though housing was a big topic in 2016, we’ve had very little debate about the impact of increasing housing prices on renters. Over the last few months, I have heard from dozens of people whose rents have gone up as much as 30 percent. These working people and seniors may lose their homes with nowhere else to go. We need to get serious about renters rights and building more affordable housing.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader:

How can the two major parties better work together to ensure progress at the Capitol?

How can the metro area’s transportation system keep up with the growing population?

What issue deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016?

I care about this community. I will fight for positive growth in Lakewood and help small businesses through tax-break incentives and reduce tax costs. I will always fight for our veterans and seniors to help them have a good life, as that is what they deserve. Lastly, I want our community/state safe, working with police and fire to ensure they receive the proper training, getting community awareness programs together, and protecting our children in schools and in their neighborhoods. I will always support our Second Amendment right, and promise to be transparent and the voice of everyone in Lakewood.

I am an educator for many things. I have had a 4-H club for many years, I assist with my son’s Boy Scout troop, and I sponsor college students in internships with textile design. My greatest accomplishment, besides my wonderful son, would be seeing all of these children that I have taught and help grow into fine young men and women. It is so satisfying to know that you made a difference in a child’s life.

I am a fiscal conservative and social moderate. People should think and consider the candidate and not the party. If they vote in those candidates that are in the middle of issues, more things will be accomplished. It is my desire to make a difference for this community and the state. And to accomplish that, both sides must work together.

I think we need to look ahead 10 to 30 years and build for that future, where we will we have self-driving cars and twice the population as we do now. There are several proposals that will be coming up in the next couple of years at the Capitol about how to bring in more money for road improvements, etc. We need to reduce costs is some areas and increase in others to make sure we are ready.

Senior care and housing. Our population, especially in Lakewood, is reaching that age where they need to reduce costs, downsize, and have good medical insurance. I want to start looking at more funding to programs to assist seniors. Programs can help seniors stay in their home as long as possible, but they need help with transportation, cleaning, food prep, or just to have a companion once in a while. Or maybe create more affordable group homes. I am currently talking with organizations and learning what is out there currently, so I can take it to the state capital and make a positive difference for our seniors

I want to make sure that future generations have the same opportunities I did growing up in Jeffco. That’s why I have been working for a decade for candidates that focused on building a stronger middle-class, with good paying jobs and policies that make it easier to afford higher education and save for retirement. I have also had the honor of focusing my legislative efforts in those areas over the past four years as your representative.

I was instrumental in passing a bipartisan bill to reduce standardized testing in our schools by 40 hours. I also passed legislation to put $30 million into new tuition assistance programs to help more Colorado students go to college; make it easier for Coloradans to put their income tax returns into a college savings account; help homeless kids to attend college and high school dropouts to complete high school requirements at a community or junior college.

Our longstanding tradition of working together to get things done for the people of Colorado is at stake as we continue to see more and more outside money being spent to influence our elections. We need to increase transparency and accountability for election contributions, and support people who will fight for Coloradans, not special interests.

The voters of Colorado passed a combination of constitutional amendments that have limited the legislature’s ability to address the increasing needs of our state, including investments in infrastructure. The gas tax is outdated, and it’s essential that our citizens and legislature work together to tackle some of the unintended consequences our state is facing.

Colorado has one of the best economies in the nation, but too many businesses and families continue to struggle. We need to level the playing field for our small businesses, and pass policies to help strengthen our middle class. The issues that need more bipartisan attention are equal pay for equal work, access to affordable housing, lowering the cost of higher education, the protection of our open spaces, and retirement security for every Coloradan.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader:

How can the two major parties better work together to ensure progress at the Capitol?

How can the metro area’s transportation system keep up with the growing population?

What issue deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016?

I’m frustrated with the toxicity and gridlock between Republicans and Democrats. I will bring a fresh perspective. I am an intelligent and caring individual who wants to do the right thing, cares about my family, peers and members of my community. I’m willing to listen, learn and become informed. In this office, I will adhere to the same tenacity, and perseverance, that I have demonstrated in my personal life and career.

I have held many leadership and management roles in my career. I am a great listener and often play the interpreter between different groups involved in projects. I am often the one that individuals on either side of an argument look to in order to help the others understand their point, argument or logic. I can apply these same principles and tactics in the State Legislature helping both sides of the aisle understand each other and work together.

The primary thing that I believe the two major parties can and should do to ensure progress is to remember who’s voice they are supposed to be representing, the people, not the PAC’s. The absolute gridlock caused by an inability to see beyond the horizon of the party lines or the PAC’s sphere of influence needs to stop. Legislatures are supposed to be leaders for the people, not for their business partners who provide campaign funding.

We need to continue focus on funding for mass transit to help reduce the congestion on our roads. We need to get serious about the long term benefits and cost of implementation of such a system and make strides to help all citizens understand their role in helping to fund, supporting, and utilizing these systems.

These are the areas that I will focus my efforts if I’m elected to be a part of the 2016 State Legislature — curbing any legislation which degrades liberties guaranteed by the constitution, ensuring that Colorado schools are a top priority in funding and teaching standards, working for an improvement in the care and lifestyle of the senior community in Colorado.

Colorado needs leadership to meet the growth we face as a state. That includes making Colorado affordable for all families. I have worked for putting an increase in the Minimum Wage on the ballot and support it’s passage to make living in this state more affordable.

Visiting representatives from Island Nations at the UN to discuss the effects of Climate Change on their Countries.

Be fully transparent on who funds your campaign and legislation that you propose.

A small tourism tax for people visiting the state for marijuana would be a source of revenue for transportation.

Passing legislation for Renewable Energy tax credits for homeowners and businesses so that they can get more of their energy from sustainable sources.

I have been a highly effective, common-sense conservative legislator, and have worked diligently to build bi-partisan coalitions to help pass good legislation for Colorado; including bills that increase the transparency and accountability of state government. I have also stood firm in opposing legislation that would undermine constitutional freedoms, stifle the private sector economy, or lead to a single payer health care system in Colorado.

In 2016, I helped lead a successful bi-partisan effort to increase transparency and accountability regarding tens of millions of dollars in public funds intended to benefit citizens with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our team was successful because we worked together, did not grandstand, and forced the opposing sides to communicate. The result was a bill (SB-38) that will provide increased accountability for taxpayers and enhanced protection for some of Colorado’s most vulnerable citizens.

Lead by example, treat all members with respect even when strongly opposing their positions, care more about results than headlines, and work hard to identify areas of agreement without abandoning principles. I’m a limited government conservative, but I’ve found allies across the aisle for legislation making government more efficient and increasing equity and choice for public school children. I believe it’s also important to note that passing more laws doesn’t necessarily equate to progress.

Transportation is complicated, but addressing it requires setting priorities. Congestion is everywhere — from I-70 and I-25 to Indiana Street. We all see it. What not all citizens realize, though, is that from 2009-2016, when median family income remained essentially flat, state General Fund spending increased by over $3 billion, over 40 percent. The reason that comparatively little of this large increase funded transportation — or schools — is that Colorado state leadership set other priorities.

We face many issues regarding the economy, education, health care and transportation. But another subject is the alarming increase of drug abuse (including among children) and mental health problems we’re seeing in Colorado and Jefferson County. On a recent ride-a-long with our fine Jeffco sheriff’s deputies, I saw more closely how these two problems combine to cause crime, homelessness and tremendous pain for families in our community.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader:

How can the two major parties better work together to ensure progress at the Capitol?

How can the metro area’s transportation system keep up with the growing population?

What issue deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016?

In my first term I have worked for a better Jeffco. I led the charge for equal pay for equal work, helped veterans get jobs, and legalized rain barrels to promote water conservation. I have also fought for senior citizens. It is my honor to serve the people of HD24, and I am committed to working hard for you at the state Capitol.

In 2016, I passed a bill that legalized rain barrels to promote water conservation. Our Jeffco community was strongly in support of the rain barrel bill, but we faced opposition. After two years of listening and working with people on all sides of the issue, we worked out a compromise. It showed me that hard work makes a difference, and together we can get things done for the people of Colorado and our environment.

Often times both sides of the aisle come together around common sense measures that help Coloradans. When we listen to each other, we realize how much we have in common.

In the short-term, there’s a solution called the hospital provider fee fix that would give us budgeting flexibility to put millions of dollars into our transportation system and our roads without raising anyone’s taxes. I think it’s our responsibility to pass that fix in order to give us time to plan for the future and make sure we are prepared for our growing population.

Making sure every Colorado family has recovered from the recession and has the chance to succeed is the most important issue going forward. We have to focus on issues that make a difference for the middle class and that means quality public education, affordable higher education, equal pay, saving for retirement and protecting our small businesses.

Why should voters choose you for this office?

Describe an accomplishment that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

What is the biggest problem faced by public K-12 education in Colorado and how would you help solve it?

What is your stance on the proliferation of charter schools in Colorado?

Is there too much standardized testing of Colorado students?

If elected, I will be the only member of the state board of education with a child in public school. I am a longtime supporter of public education, serving as council liaison to public schools while a city councilmember and mayor pro tem. I believe every child deserves the kind of highquality public education my children are receiving so they can be well prepared for college or career.

While serving as city council liaison to the Cherry Creek School District, I worked with state legislators to develop and pass measures to improve school funding. I worked with Bicycle Colorado to deliver Safe Routes to Schools to our local schools. I’m proud to have supported our school resource officers for campus safety. Collaborating with partners to accomplish better outcomes for students is essential, and I am a proven collaborator.

Our greatest challenge is to ensure that every child in Colorado has access to the resources they need to become well prepared for college or career. I will be a strong advocate for smarter public education funding — especially increasing transparency, reducing administrative bloat and routing our tax dollars to the classroom, where they belong. Great schools are essential to a strong economy. I want to see every part of Colorado enjoy great schools and the high-wage jobs that follow.

I support local neighborhood public schools. While most chartering decisions are made at the local level, the state board of education has judicial review for appeals. Local input, including the input of local elected school board members, is important to consider when weighing an appeal. Rubber stamping questionable applications against the will of local stakeholders is a practice I would reverse in this seat. Tax credits or vouchers for private schools can also drain resources from our neighborhood schools, and I do not support these costly schemes.

Steps to reduce standardized testing have helped, and we must remain responsive to students, parents, teachers and community members regarding the impact of standardized testing on the learning process. I support the hub and spoke committees as they work to provide input for Colorado’s interpretation of ESSA. I am a public school parent who will listen to public input as we work to ensure that every child can become well prepared for college or career.

As a teacher and teacher of teachers, I know firsthand how important it is to provide support for teachers, staff and school leaders and how important it is for parents to be able to guide the public education of their students. I have a track record of working collaboratively to find solutions that provide communities the flexibility to meet their needs. I work hard to make sure we have a transparent accountable system.

Developing new regulations and laws that help keep students’ and staffs’ personally identifiable information safe and confidential are among the accomplishments that demonstrate my effectiveness as a leader. I worked with groups of parents, CDE’s staff, district staffs, legislators and fellow board members to create tougher regulations and new laws to protect data. This required tenacity, persistence, subtle persuasion and sometimes toughness, to bring people together to develop creative solutions, all essential leadership skills.

The biggest problem facing K-12 education is the variety of issues we face. From federal intrusion, to teachers needing resources and flexibility to meet the needs of their students, to adequate allocation of resources, to special interest groups trying to influence public education, the issues vary widely. This is why I am a strong supporter of local control and will work hard to support local communities developing solutions that work for their students, families and staff.

Every student’s needs are unique and we cannot afford to have a one-sizefits-all public education system. We must make sure there are options so that students have access to the public education solution that meets their needs. So I support community driven choices that provide highquality options for students and are accountable to the same standards as neighborhood schools.

Yes, Colorado students spend too much time taking standardized tests. I worked with my fellow board members to reduce testing time required by the state. Despite this, schools, districts, colleges and the armed services all require various standardized tests. In addition, students often face a variety of assessments to determine placement and or identify skills that need reinforcement. I will continue to work to reduce testing burdens so students spend more time learning.

Why are you seeking Why should voters choose you for this this office? office?

I believe everyone should have the opportunity to achieve the American dream. For many people, education is the key that opens the door to this opportunity. A welleducated citizenry is crucial to keeping our nation free and strong. I was raised in a military family and these values were instilled in me from birth. Serving as a CU Regent is an opportunity to contribute to what I so strongly believe in.

I’ve been effective as a regent in my first term, with a commitment to keeping tuition costs down and providing educational opportunities to firstgeneration college students through the pre-collegiate program. My efforts also have been instrumental in establishing a policy that fights discrimination on the basis of political affiliation and philosophy.

Describe an What will your accomplishment top priority be if that best illustrates elected? your effectiveness as a leader. I have worked across the board and the university system to advance the freedom of ideas and support for military families that led to legislation signed by the governor. Collaborating with community leaders to enhance college access, and promoting these ideas to the university.

I will continue to focus on fiscal responsibility, seeking cost reductions and efficiencies, and reducing costly, inefficient policies. Increasing revenue is key, especially through research, online education, private funding through donors, and partnerships with the business community.

What else should voters know about you?

I seek greater ideological diversity at the university through initiatives such as the Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy at the Boulder campus, in addition to growing the Center for Western Civilization.

Philanthropic golf group celebrates giving back Foundation at Rolling Hills hands out annual fundraising check Staff report The Foundation at Rolling Hills on Oct. 14 celebrated giving back just over $2.1 million to the community, since its inception in 1999. Funds are raised primarily through an annual golf classic and gala celebration, which took place this year in June. Each year, one Colorado-based primary beneficiary is selected to receive 75 percent of the funds, and 25 percent of the funds are distributed to smaller, local nonprofits throughout the year. The primary beneficiary for 2016 was The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Rocky Mountain Chapter, and the 2017 primary beneficiary will be the Red Rocks Community College Foundation. “The Foundation at Rolling Hills provides nonprofits … a tremendous opportunity to raise more money than they can do on their own,” said Ron Slinger, the executive director of the Red Rocks Community College Foundation. “Their generosity is making all of Jefferson County better.”

Leaves, leagues change, but not results

Ralston Valley boys soccer wins 5A Jeffco with victory over A-West By Dennis Pleuss Jeffco Public Schools ARVADA — Fittingly, the winner of the Class 5A Jeffco League boys soccer championship came down to one game between the two dominate teams in the conference over the past six years. Arvada West, No. 9 in the latest CHSAANow.com Class 5A poll, came in riding an eight-game winning streak Oct. 14 at the North Area Athletic Complex. Standing in the way of the Wildcats’ fifth conference title in six years was rival Ralston Valley. The Mustangs (11-3, 7-0 in league) grabbed the league title away from the Wildcats (11-4, 6-1) thanks to a goal on a direct free kick in the 72nd minute off the foot of Ralston Valley sophomore Mason Miller. The late goal allowed Ralston Valley to take a 2-1 victory. “I saw the keeper leaning a little toward his front post and the wall was on the front post too,” Miller said of his game-winning goal. “He left a little bit of

the back post open. I figured if I hit it just right I felt like I could put it in there.” A-West had a direct kick with two seconds left in regulation time, but a shot by senior Alec Breay was headed away from Ralston Valley senior Kevin Yevak near the goal as time expired. “He (Yavak) is awesome,” Ralston Valley junior goalie Jared Peterson said. “He was right there where he needed to be at the end of the game.” The Mustangs prevented an A-West four-peat in 2014 with Ralston Valley defeating the Wildcats 3-2 in overtime. Ralston Valley went on to go undefeated in conference play that season to win the league title. Scarcliff, a Ralston Valley graduate, was named head coach in late July. She admits an undefeated conference record and eight-game winning streak was something she didn’t expect. “It’s been a cool season and I’ve been very lucky to be apart of it,” Scarcliff said. “I don’t know if I would have believe it. I knew the boys had it in them. It’s special

group and a talented group.” Ralston Valley is slated for one final non-league game against defending 4A state champion Evergreen, Oct. 20, at Lakewood Memorial Field. Going into Friday’s showdown, Ralston Valley was 14th in the RPI rankings while A-West was 20th. Both will be in the state tournament as the top two teams in 5A Jeffco receiving automatic bids, but seeding will depend on how the final RPI numbers shake out. A-West has some down-time before the postseason begins Thursday, Oct. 27. The Colorado High School Activities Association will release the 32-team 5A state bracket Sunday, Oct. 23. “It was fun. It was a good entertaining game,” A-West coach Troy Gette said. “It was two good teams playing each other. We are both at the top of Jeffco for a reason.” A-West opened the scoring the 21st minute. Senior Luke Drumright rocketed a direct free kick from just outside Soccer continues on Page 31

Valor outscores D’Evelyn in volleyball match By Tom Munds tmunds@coloradocommunitymedia.com The Oct. 10 volleyball match lived up to expectations as 12-0 D’Evelyn hosted 11-3 Valor Christian with both teams sporting 4-0 league records. Both teams gave their fans a lot to cheer about with hard-driving spikes, diving digs and long volleys during the spirited competition. But Valor won the match 3-0 despite the determined Jaguar effort. “Our team is very solid with great leadership from our four seniors, and all our underclassmen are playing very well — which will prove important in future seasons,” D’Evelyn Coach Valerie Bennett-Battaglia said before the match. “Actually, the future of D’Evelyn volleyball looks very good.” She said there are 48 girls on the various team rosters, the largest turnout for volleyball in the past five years.

Key moments The score of the first set was tied 4-4 when Valor surged ahead. The Jaguars staged a rally and tied the score at 14. But the Eagles went on to win the set 25-19. Sets two and three followed a similar pattern with Valor building a lead and D’Evelyn closing the gap. But unfortunately for the Jaguars, the Eagles won the next two sets, 25-19 and 25-13, to win the match, 3-0. Key players/statistics Seven players contributed to the D’Evelyn total of 34 kills. Kindra Cerrone was the team kill leader with 12 and Peyton Wright made 10 kills. Jaguar players dove to the floor to keep the ball in play as they recorded a total of 28 digs. Sarah Smith was the dig leader with 11 while teammates Julie Helm and Natalie Haggard each made four digs. Haggard was the assist leader with 30 while Wright and Smith each re-

ceived 18 serves as the team leaders in that statistical category. They said it “I think Valor didn’t see our team at its best tonight,” Jaguar senior Haileee Lansville said after the match. “We win as a team, we lose as a team and we are better than we played tonight. The next time we see Valor they will see a different team.” Valor’s fast-paced tempo was nothing new to the D’Evelyn team. Lansville said Assistant Coach Will Clark plays that style in practices. The team was prepared, she said, but just didn’t show up for the match against Valor. Going forward D’Evelyn has two more games on the regular season schedule and both are against league opponents. Once the regular season is completed, the Jaguars will take part in the Class 4A Jefferson County league tournament.

Fall is the time for change. Leaves on trees change color and fall off. And this past week, I’ve had to change the climate-control system in the car from air conditioning during the warmth of the afternoon to the heat in the evening to take off the chill. Jim Benton There has also been OVERTIME a change with the new league alignments in high school football. The idea was to dissolve leagues like the Centennial and 5A Jefferson County that seemed to always have some of the state’s best teams playing against each other week after week during the conference schedule. There was an occasional lopsided victory, which can’t be avoided no matter which teams are playing in which leagues. Those blowouts have not been eliminated in the new alignments. Hopefully, games will get more competitive, but the good teams will continue to be good no matter the alignment or the name of the league. In the seven new Class 5A leagues, the average margin of victory during the first week of conference play was 26.9 points with five games decided by more than 40 points. Games were a little closer in the second week of 5A conference play with a one-point decision, three four- point victories and a five-point margin, but those were offset by a 55-point blowout and three 40-plus-point lopsided games. The average margin of victory was 23.8 points in the second week of league games. Class 4A has also seen its share of routs. Take the Plains League for example. The average margin of victory in the first two weeks is 39.5. These new leagues will remain in 2017 for the second year of the cycle before the conferences will again be changed in the waterfall format that snakes schools into leagues based on two-year Ratings Performance Index rankings, which are generated by a computer. Sometimes change is good, but maybe more geographical reasoning needs to be included in the league realignments. Consider this: At the start of the football game between home standing Legend and Poudre from Fort Collins on Oct. 13, there were 51 people in the visitors’ bleachers at Echo Park Stadium in Parker. RPI standings If you don’t understand how the RPI standings in football are compiled, there is a formula but most of the time it’s easier just to look up the standings at chsaanow.com/rpi In the seven 5A and 4A leagues, the league champions automatically gain a spot in the 16-team playoffs with the other teams being selected via RPI. The top five teams in the Class 5A RPI standings, in order, compiled Oct. 16 are Regis Jesuit, Valor Christian, Grandview, Mullen and Cherry Creek. Mountain Vista is 15, ThunderRidge 16 and Legend 17, but there are still three weeks of action remaining and many changes will be forthcoming. Highlands Ranch standout transfers Leilah Vigil, the leading scorer for the Highlands Ranch girls basketball team the past two seasons, has transferred to Grandview High in Aurora. The junior will be playing with Grandview senior standout Michaela Onyenwere after the Colorado High School Activities Association deemed Vigil will have full eligibility since the transfer was viewed as a bona fide family move.

Ralston Valley answered on a set piece of its own in the 31st minute. Sophomore Sam Keller was able to get his head on a corner kick and get it past A-West goalie Brandan Bell to tie the game at 1-1 at halftime. The Wildcats had allowed just one goal in six conference games heading into the league finale. “Two kids stepped up real big to

get us some goals,” Scarcliff said. “(Miller’s) free kick came at the perfect time when we needed it. We said how set pieces were going to be a make or break for us offensively and defensively.” Dennis Pleuss is a communications specialist for Jeffco Public Schools with a focus on athletics and activities.

Sober Continued from Page 1

How the program works As of Oct. 11, officers had distributed 22 vouchers, Porter said. But the voucher program, which started in April, are only the first phase of Project Sober Hero. The second phase, a partnership with Metro Taxi, began Oct. 7. “What we do is provide safe drivers for people to get from point A to point B,” said Sean McBride, operations manager for Metro Taxi. “Getting a DUI is a life-changing event — and not in a good way.” The taxi service is happy to partner with the Golden Police Department, McBride said, and added Metro Taxi also plans to work with other jurisdictions across the metro area in the future. The third phase — a coaster campaign — is still in the works, Lizakowski said, but is expected to launch within the next month or so. Local establishments will give out coasters with information reminding folks not to drink and drive and how to get a cab. The partnership with Metro Taxi includes two main details — a taxi-cop car to serve as a visual reminder of the dangers of drinking and driving, and the addition of more taxi drivers based in Golden. Metro Taxi donated a retired vehicle, to become the taxi-cop car — complete with Golden Police Department decals and lights — delivered to the police department on Oct. 5. “It’s meant to be a giant billboard so people can get that visual,” Porter said, of the driving advertisement for the sober drinking campaign. The taxi company also will be increasing its local fleet of five to 10 drivers that service Golden weekly, McBride said. “Drivers are excited to develop a rapport with the local people here in Golden.” So far, Porter said, Project Sober Hero has seen success. It’s a great way to bring awareness to people who live here and people who visit the community, agreed Mick McManus, general manager of the Buffalo Rose bar and grill in downtown Golden. The manager said it puts his employees at ease knowing they are able to call Metro Taxi to get customers taken care of and home safely. On Oct. 7, he saw a group of people leaving the Buffalo Rose call a cab rather than drive home after drinking at the bar. “It’s really rewarding to see first-hand that it’s working,” Porter said. “No one likes getting tickets,” Lizakowski said. But the vouchers “put a smile on their face when their rewarded.” The campaign tries to make the point that not only is getting a DUI costly, McBride said, but driving while intoxicated puts people’s lives in danger. “At the end of the day,” McBride said, “it’s not worth it when you could just take a $10 cab ride home instead.”

PROJECT SOBER HERO SLOGAN It costs $10,000 for a ride in a police car (after associated legal fees) and $10 for a ride in a taxi cab. At $2.60 — the flat fee to get in a Metro Taxi, then $2.25 per mile — most cab rides in the Denver-metro area average to be about $10-$12.

Knee Arthritis Pain: One HUGE Mistake And Two “Smart Moves”

Doctor’s Simple Advice Gets Rave Reviews By Patients Lucky Enough To Give It A Try By Matt Edgar America’s Health Writer

Denver- Have you been told that exercise will help your knee arthritis pain? Well... has it helped? If it hasn’t, one local doctor has a very good reason why. Not only that - he says if you are trying to exercise with knee arthritis - you might be making a HUGE mistake. Sounds crazy? Yes it does. In fact, I thought it was a ridiculous thing to say. That is until I talked to some of his patients who gave him rave reviews. Many said he completely changed their life. When they first came to the office, their knee arthritis pain was so bad they could barely walk and were scheduled for total knee replacement surgery. In a relatively short period of time, they cancelled surgery and are enjoying their lives again. Why is exercising a HUGE mistake and what does this doctor recommend that is helping so many knee arthritis sufferers who come to see them from all over the state? Double Edged Sword The doctor says that exercising with knee arthritis is a double edged sword. It is true, your knee joints need motion to be healthy.

And lack of motion can be very detrimental. Without motion joints become “sick.” And in theory exercising should help knee arthritis. But here is the BIG problem: Knee arthritis is condition that dries up the lubricating fluids in your knee. It also changes the joint surface and creates bone spurs. Because of these changes - exercising on an arthritic knee can cause more swelling, more pain and more arthritic changes. Imagine driving your car without any oil. What happens? The engine parts scrape together and wear out. You can’t simply drive your car more and make it better. And in many cases - you simply can’t just exercise your knee and make it better, either. What’s the answer? In a car it’s simple - put in more oil. And then make sure the oil level is correct and it is changed when necessary. With your knee joints - it is a little more complicated. The major lubricating fluid in your knee joint is called synovial fluid. Synovial fluid is the fluid that “dries up” when you suffer with arthritis. But there is good news: Now doctors can inject one of the building blocks of synovial fluid

Making Knee Arthritis Pain Worse: Research has discovered that people are suffering with arthritis much younger than expected. Making the right treatment choices now can possibly stop the progression and eliminate the pain.

directly into your knee joint. This building block of synovial fluid is called hyaluronic acid. And when hyaluronic acid is injected directly into the knee joint, many experts believe it helps lubricate the joint. Some say it is like squirting oil on a rusty door hinge. This allows the knee joint to glide more smoothly and often reduces or even eliminates pain. And here is the most important part: Now that the joint is lubricated and can move with

less or no pain - specific exercises can be a tremendous help. That’s why the doctors (when patients qualify) treat knee arthritis patients with hyaluronic acid injections FIRST and then prescribe a very specific rehabilitation and exercise program specially developed to help knee arthritis pain. This comprehensive knee arthritis pain program is called, “P.A.C.E.” and has been getting wonderful results. So what is the HUGE mistake? If you suffer with knee arthritis and are exercising and the pain is either not getting better - or getting worse - you may be making a mistake. You may actually be making things worse. And that’s the last thing you want to do. What are the two “smart moves?” If you have knee arthritis pain, look into viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid. In many cases treatment with hyaluronic acid followed by a specific rehabilitation or exercise program can get results when everything else has failed. In fact, it is not uncommon to get pain relief just from the hyaluronic acid treatments alone - without doing any rehabilitation or exercising at all. And the results can be dramatic. If you are thinking about

giving hyaluronic acid treatments a try - this is VERY IMPORTANT: In our opinion the doctor you choose should use advanced imaging technology such as fluoroscopy to guide the injections and make sure the hyaluronic acid goes where it is supposed to. Laser guided digital imaging is one of the best technologies to guide injections. Research shows that without fluoroscopy, doctors miss the joint space up to 30% of the time. Obviously, if the joint space is missed - the treatment cannot work. If you have already had viscosupplementation without this advanced imaging technology and it did not work - you may want to give it another try with a doctor who uses this cutting edge technique to get the best results possible. So, if you suffer with knee arthritis pain, talk to a specialist about viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid especially if exercise is not working or making things worse. And make sure the doctor you choose works in a state-ofthe-art medical facility and uses advanced fluoroscopic imaging (Like laser guided digital imaging) to guide the injections to make sure the treatments have the best chance to work. For more information on viscosupplementation for knee arthritis or to get a free screening to see if this treatment is right for you, one of the specialists at Osteo Relief Institute can be reached at 720-500-1045.

Knee Pain Treatment Craze In Denver

After thousands already helped knee pain suffers face 48 hour cut off to get risk free screening for incredibly popular treatment (ORI) - The clock is ticking. There is only 48 hours to go. If you suffer with knee arthritis pain and would like to get a risk free knee pain screening to see if the experts at Osteo Relief Institute in Greenwood Village, CO can help you with their extremely popular knee pain relief program - read this right now. Here is why: For the past several years, the experts at Osteo Relief Institute have been literally swarmed with knee arthritis sufferers looking for relief. Nearly all these knee pain sufferers chose Osteo Relief for one reason - their top-notch knee pain relief program featuring viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid and specially designed rehabilitation program. The SecretTo Success? The experts at Osteo Relief Institute believe one of the biggest reasons for their success is the fact that they have some of the best technology money can buy. Laser Guided Digital Imaging The clinic uses extremely advanced imaging equipment that allows them to see directly into the knee joint that they are treating. This advanced imaging is called, “Laser Guided Digital Imaging” and many experts believe is the difference between success and failure with this knee pain treatment. And probably the best thing about this technology is that it has allowed the experts at Osteo Relief Institute to get results with knee pain when so many others have failed. What Is This Treatment? This treatment is viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid (HA). Those are big medical terms that basically means this... When you have knee arthritis - the lubricating fluid (synovial fluid) in your knee joint dries up.

This means instead of gliding smoothly - your bones start to rub and grind against each other. This causes a little pain in the beginning - but over time the pain steadily gets worse until it is excruciating. Hyaluronic acid works so well because it is like “joint oil.” It is a natural substance and is one of the natural building blocks of the synovial fluid that lubricates your knee. Scientists and researchers discovered this natural building block to synovial fluid in the rooster’s comb - that big red thing on top of the roosters head. It is extracted from the roosters comb, purified and concentrated. When it is injected directly into your knee joint, it is like squirting oil on a rusty door hinge. Hyaluronic acid allows your joints to glide more smoothly eliminating a lot of the rubbing, grinding and pain. Why You Should Try This Even If You’ve Already Had Similar Treatments Without results... “We have been able to help so many knee pain sufferers - even many who have already tried other injections like Synvisc, Supartz, Orthovisc and even Hyalgan. We use special and very advanced low-dose videofluoroscopy imaging called “Hologic Digital Imaging” so we can see right into the joint. This allows us to put the Hyalgan exactly where it needs to be. Studies show doctors doing joint injections without fluoroscopy miss the joint up to 30% of the time.” said the director of Arthritis Treatment at Osteo Relief Institute. Osteo Relief Institute is a state of the art medical facility offering only the best technology. And that’s not all - Osteo Relief Institute has a complete knee relief program called “P.A.C.E.” to make sure you get the most

Hyalgan Injected Directly Into Knee Joint Like “Joint Oil”

Research Shows Doctors Miss The Joint Space About 30% Of The Time Without Advance Imaging

Successful Treatment - Hyalgan being precisely injected directly into the knee joint using Hologic digital imaging. Advanced imaging allows treatments to be as precise as possible. Hyalgan can lubricate the joint and decrease pain.

Failed Treatment - the injection (and Hyalgan) misses the joint space. Research shows this occurs up to 30% of the time without the use of Hologic Digital Imaging to guide the injection. This is why Hyalgan may not have worked for you.

pain relief and the best possible results from treatment. “Every case is individual. Some patients get quite a bit of relief right away - others take a little more time. But most have been extremely happy and the results usually last for at least 6 months. Patients who were suffering for years with bad knee pain are getting their lives back... going for walks again and exercising. It’s amazing to see. They tell all their friends - that’s why we are swarmed. I can’t tell you how many patients have cancelled their total knee replacement surgeries.” added one of the doctors.
