Adams County Drug Court is changing lives One man finally sees results and leads a life of sobriety By Amy Thomson Special to Colorado Community Media George Wittner believes that if he had entered the Adams County Drug Court after being arrested for his first criminal

offense while using drugs 40 years ago, it might have saved him a life of addiction and crime. “Drug court is just a better alternative (to prison),” Wittner said. “I wish they had it 40 years ago, I probably wouldn’t have had all the trouble I had.” Since the program began in 2011, Drug Court — also known as Highway to Health — has been working with drug-

using offenders to change their lives with judicial monitoring, therapy groups and treatment. From Oct. 1, 2011 to Aug.31, 2015, 19 high-risk individuals graduated from the court. Wittner completed the program last summer. “If Drug Court wasn’t here, there would be a lot of addicts in jail or prison not getting help,” Drug Court Probation Officer Carissa Gonzales said. “They potentially

would get released back into the community before having the treatment they need to be successful…and go right back to their old behaviors.” The program includes many phases of sobriety and if participants ever fail a drug test, those days reset to zero. There are $5 gift cards for two weeks of sobriety Court continues on Page 12

Westminster Schools aims at getting a fair shot District uses different approach to learning amid state’s accountability system By Yesenia Robles Chalkbeat Colorado

Pink partnership shines light on disease 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.

Leaders of the largest school district in Colorado facing possible state intervention next year are contending that the current system for rating schools is not capturing progress their students are making under an approach to learning that is one-of-a-kind in Colorado. In 2009, Westminster Public Schools began phasing in competency-based learning, which is based on grouping kids together based on what they know instead of their age. “Our system is at odds with the traditional accountability model,” said Oliver Grenham, chief education officer for Westminster Public Schools. He added that the district is showing growth and closing achievement gaps separating students of different backgrounds. The state’s preliminary rating for the district is priority improvement, the second lowest rating on the scale, and the same as in previous years. The state Schools continues on Page 15

County human service department stands out

Department receives donation, employees recognized for oustanding work

By Amy Thomson Special to Colorado Community Media

Having grown up in the foster care system, the Adams County Funnel Cake 5K is close to Charles Tedesco’s heart. That’s because the money raised supports the county’s foster children. “I was one of the lucky foster children that received caring parents that took care of me and gave me the guidance I needed to go through life,” said Tedesco, an Adams County commissioner. Held in August, the third annual Adams County Funnel Cake 5K, in which runners indulge in a funnel cake as they run, more than doubled its attendance, resulting in a slightly more than $3,000 donation to the county’s Human Ser-

vices Department. Tedesco, the lead in organizing the race, gave a heartwarming speech at the Oct. 11 Adams County Public Hearing, highlighting the importance of the employees who work in the Human Services Department within Adams County. “We don’t pay you like we pay football players,” Tedesco said. “But we should.” The commissioner noted that every two minutes a child enters foster care, and 50 percent of children that age out of foster care end up incarcerated. The Human Services Department runs multiple programs with the overall goal to prevent out-of-home placement. The county has 71 foster homes serving 93 children. The check for $3,086.90 will go towards a December holiday dinner for all children in the system. County Human Services staff recognized A group of Human Services employees also were recognized by a resident who sent a note to the county.

“I am incredibly impressed by your processes — they are efficient and have given me everything I need to help get our daughter settled,” the resident said. “Your employees are by far the most responsive that I have worked with in any county.” Among those recognized were Susan Townsend, David Greg, Michele Cox and Cookie James. In a separate ceremony, the Summer Employees of the Season were awarded for outstanding work within categories like innovation and extra effort. “The employees honored here today have demonstrated exceptional service to the county and its residents,” County Commissioner Steve O’Dorisio said. “And it is our pleasure to honor them.” Administrative Coordinator Mark Moskowitz was recognized for his nevergive-up attitude within the transportation department. Brandi Rank, citd for innovation, mentoring and leadership, was honored

for her work and collaboration in business solutions. The unsung hero award went to Hung Pham, for his dedication to improving situations without being prompted. The Information Technology employee who has been with the county for 18 years has managed important computer servers and recovered lost data. “I can’t think of a weekend or holiday he hasn’t worked,” Director of Information Technology Kevin Beach said, “even though we begged him not to.” In the “extra effort” category, Human Services colleagues nominated Corey Dennis for his dedication to the families they serve and his innovative ideas. The time he spent visiting a child multiple times over the weekend this year helped the child avoid hospitalization. Also a member of the innovation committee, he has spearheaded grant applications to secure new technology County continues on Page 3

Dennis applied for a grant to the Innovations Academy Board for the video conferencing technology and was awarded $3,500 to buy the equipment. He also wrote a separate grant for interpretation services and received $800 to buy a system that will allow the department to have a device that will perform the interpretation electronically.

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

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 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.

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.

Ed Raines, collections manager for the Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum, sorts through some of the gems and minerals included in the recent Herfurth donation of roughly 800 specimens, valued at about $1.75 million. Although staff hasn’t finished putting labels on everything, some of the collection is already out on display for public viewing. Photo by Christy Steadman 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 outof-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

ADAMS COUNTY NEWS IN A HURRY Drug take-back event slated in Adams County The Adams County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Agency to sponsor a drug take-back event for expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs. People may bring pills for disposal to the Adams County Sheriff’s substation, 4201 E. 72nd Ave., Westminster, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 22. Last April, Americans turned in about 447 tons of prescription drugs at sites sponsored by DEA and state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in 11 previous take-back events, the DEA and its partners have taken in more than 3,200 tons of pills. Rain barrel workshop planned in Thornton Sustainable Adams County is partnering with Colorado State University Extension to educate Adams County residents on rainwater collection systems.

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.”

Putting a premium on the future can help them with problems accessing veterans benefits. Though LeVeque said Sheridan’s older demographics plays a role in the post’s membership, he has heard from younger veterans that they found it hard to interact in a group made up almost exclusively of older veterans. At VFW Post 4666 in Littleton, there are no members who served in the post 9/11 era. In fact, 70-year-old Vietnam veteran Stan McClure, the post’s service officer, said he is one of the youngest members. “We’d really like to change that because we’re getting older,” the Army veteran said. Members of the Littleton post gather three days per week in the mornings — which McClure says may be part of their problem, as the younger veterans are likely to be at work. He also said that a place where members can sit and have a beer, something the post lacks that many VFW halls have, could help. Instead, members gather around a long table for coffee in the small white Gallup Street house that serves as the post. “We’re losing members faster than we’re gaining them,” McClure said. In Sheridan, the post at 2680 W. Hampden Avenue has the typical VFW hall look — a bar, a jukebox and TVs. But post Junior Vice Cmdr. Paul Gremse said that could play into the sterotype of the organization being for the older crowd. He also chalked some of the problem up to a societal change. “These organizations used to be like the social hub of the community,” said Gremse, who retired from the Air Force in 2001 after a 23-year career. LeBlanc said that when she got out of the Marines, she didn’t know much about the VFW or similar organizations. “I honestly thought it was just for older vets,” she said. McClure didn’t join the VFW as a younger vet either — he just joined last year, nearly five decades after his tour in Vietnam. He says he’s glad that he joined. “I have a whole bunch of new friends,” he said.

Veterans organizations look to reverse trend of dwindling ranks of younger service members By Kyle Harding kharding@coloradocommunitymedia.com About 3 million Americans have served in the military since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and just as there are differences between generations of the public at large, there are differences between younger veterans and those who served before them. One of those differences is a reluctance to join organizations like Veterans of Foreign Wars. Like many veterans of her era, Rita Leblanc, of Centennial, said she doesn’t feel like membership in an organization fits into her schedule. “I just don’t have the time,” said Leblanc, who served in the Marine Corps from 2000 to 2007, with duty in Korea. “I’m a student. I’m a parent.” Army veteran Jason Moore, of Lakewood, shares that concern. “At this point, I’m just too busy,” said Moore, a student who served as a field artilleryman in Afghanistan. But Moore, who heads up the veterans club at Arapahoe Community College, said he would like to spend time around older veterans. “It’d be nice to go and talk to vets from another generation and have some camaraderie there,” he said. Vernon Baltes, of Parker, who served as an Army cavalry scout from 2000-05, including in Iraq and Kosovo, said younger veterans may feel uncomfortable in groups of older veterans. Greta Bleau, senior vice commander of VFW Post 9644 in Sheridan, said the club has struggled to attract younger members and that Vietnam veterans — now in their 60s and beyond — make up the core of its membership. “I think our problem is that we get a couple here and there and they feel like they’re alone,” she said.

A new approach Some VFW posts are being proactive in their quest for younger members. In Denver, VFW Post 1, which began even before the nationwide VFW organization, bills itself as “the oldest post with the youngest members.” Post 1’s location, located in an old art gallery in the Santa Fe Arts District, lends itself to a younger crowd. Post 1 even holds weekly yoga classes, coordinated by the Team Red, White & Blue, which is one of several upstart

A societal shift? Paul LeVeque, post commander in Sheridan, said he and his fellow Vietnam veterans often didn’t feel welcome in the VFW when they returned home, and they want to make sure the organization is inviting to younger members. He said younger veterans may not know that the VFW

DECLINING NUMBERS Formed in 1899 by members of the Spanish-American War to advocate for veterans benefits, the Veterans of Foreign Wars claims 1.7 million members, counting auxiliary members who gained access

through veteran relatives. At its peak in the early 1990s, VFW membership totaled more than 2 million, according to a 2015 article by the Washington Times.

VFW MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS AND BENEFITS Veterans of Foreign Wars membership is open to honorably-discharged veterans who are U.S. citizens and whose service earned them a campaign medal or hostile fire or imminent danger pay, or served in Korea at any time since June 30, 1949. Membership benefits include

discounts at hotel chains and healthcare services, and VFW Post 9644 Cmdr. Paul LeVeque said the VFW can help veterans with problems access Veterans Administration benefits. For more information, visit www.vfw.org.

groups that appeals to the different interests younger veterans have. It was started in Michigan in 2010 by Army veteran Mike Erwin. “Team RWB’s mission is to enrich veterans’ lives through physical and social activities,” said Tara McMachen, who is the social director for the Denver chapter. Team RWB is not just for younger veterans. In fact, it’s not just for veterans — McMachen is not one. But roughly 70 percent of its members served, most in the post 9/11 era. Team RWB does not have a space of its own, but meets at various locations around the Denver area for running, rock climbing, Crossfit, bar trivia and more. LeVeque, of the Sheridan post, said that finding a way to get younger members will be crucial to the VFW’s survival as an organization, noting that the posts do volunteer service and the older members are not as able to do as much as they used to. “We have to,” he said, “if we’re going to stay afloat at least.”

5 more states vote on minimum wages as federal wage stalls

By Kristen Wyatt Associated Press Congress’ inaction on the $7.25 hourly minimum wage is again playing out on state ballots, with voters in four states considering an increase and another considering wages for the youngest workers, even though the states already exceed the federal. In some cases voters are also deciding whether to add sick-leave policies to help the working poor. The ballot proposals in Arizona, Colorado, Maine and Washington come two

years after voters in five other states passed minimum-wage hikes. South Dakota voters are taking a second crack at wages, two years after raising them to $8.50 an hour. Is it a slam dunk that this year’s measures will pass, too? Maybe. Even the classic opponents to a higher minimum wage _ restaurant associations and small-business groups _ are running muted campaigns to oppose the wage measures. ``It almost always passes when it gets on the ballot,’’ said Jerold Waltman, a political scientist at Baylor University who has written extensively about minimum wage and politics.

``Most Americans have a fundamental sense of fairness, that if you work, you ought to make enough to make a living wage on. Democrats and Republicans seem to agree on this.’’ Four of the wage measures are only slightly different. Arizona, Colorado and Maine are considering phased-in $12 hourly minimum wages by 2020. In Washington state, where the minimum wage is $9.47 an hour, voters are considering a higher minimum wage, $13.50 an hour by 2020. The measures in Arizona and Washington also require employers to give paid sick leave.

Voters in South Dakota are looking at the minimum wage for the second time in as many years. They will consider a socalled ``referred law’’ to overturn a state law passed in reaction to a 2014 vote raising the minimum to $8.50, with the wage pegged to inflation. South Dakota lawmakers lowered the minimum wage to $7.50 for workers under 18, with no inflation adjustment for those youngest workers. The ballot measure asks voters to choose between keeping lawmakers’ approach to younger workers, or Wage continues on Page 11

Art helps drive local economy Business panel looks at effect of SCFD funding By Sonya Ellingboe sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com The Colorado Business Committee for the Arts has issued its most recent report, called “Economic Activity Study of the Metro Denver Culture” which reports on statistics from activities completed in 2015. Results were compiled from reports by 100 percent of the 264 grantee organizations, large and small, that received funding from the

Scientific and Cultural Facilities District — or SCFD — in 2015. “As a state, Colorado ranks top in the country for classical music concert, dance and theater performances and art museum attendance. The Denver metro area is also ranked high nationally for performing and visual arts attendance. With an emphasis on accessibility, free attendance went up 3 percent from 2013,” the report says. In September, the SCFD Board of Directors approved distribution of $7,649,204 to 246 Tier III organizations in seven metro Denver counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield,

Denver, Douglas and Jefferson. The money is being distributed this month — Arapahoe got $1,589,604 on Oct. 13 and Douglas got $630,257 on Oct. 24. Funds are based on collection of one cent of sales tax on a $10 sale in the seven counties. Economic impact Here’s how the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts sees the economic impact of arts organizations assisted by SCFD funding: • Economic activity: $1.8 billion This includes operating ex-

penditures, audience spending and capital expenditures. The ripple effect ranges widely — food for animals at the Denver Zoo; actors’ salaries that are spent locally; pay for a baby sitter so parents can attend shows; money spent to drive to Hudson Gardens or Morrison Natural History Museum … • Total economic impact: $ 512.8 million Cultural tourism: $367 million; capital expenditures: $55 million; federal grants: $90.8 million • Total jobs: 10,731 This covers a broad array of positions, from curator to ac-

countant to zookeeper to jazz teacher … • Total payroll: $165.2 million • Total seat, sales and payroll taxes: $19.8 million • Total contributions: $176.4 million • Total attendance: 13.9 million The average metro resident had 4.5 art experiences in 2015. • Total outreach to children: 3.9 million • Total volunteers 42,415 Hours spent volunteering reached 2,031,073. • SCFD distributions: $53.2 million.

requiring higher wages for all working teens. The campaigns are talking about folks like Mayra Pride in Colorado, a 25-year old mother of three. Born and raised in Denver, Pride and her husband are considering moving after the birth of a fourth child because they can’t make ends meet on his pay for landscaping and construction jobs. ``It’s not close to enough,’’ Pride said after a recent shopping trip to a discount store that sells cheap toiletries and paper goods. ``We pay over $1,000 a month rent. That basically eats it all up. We can’t afford anything else sometimes.’’ Opponents of the wage campaigns are trying a nuanced approach, opposing not higher wages but how the measures are worded. In Colorado and Washington, for example, the opposing campaigns are arguing that minimum wages should be lower in rural, lower-cost areas. ``It’s not the cities, the big businesses that are going to suffer,’’ said Tyler Sandberg of Colorado’s wage opposition campaign, called Keep Colorado Working. ``A big corporation in Denver is going to be treated the same as a small mom-and-pop business’’ in a small town, he said.

“I’m very excited for the people that get in trouble and have a chance to do something like Drug Court. It could change people’s lives.” George Wittner, Went through Adams County Drug Court last summer

and sanctions such as community service, writing papers or short jail sentences. Drug Court has saved more than $2 million in costs that would have spent housing offenders in Adams County Detention Facility, Community Corrections Division and Colorado Department of Corrections, county officials say. The Drug Court team is comprised of a district attorney, a public defender, a judge, a coordinator, probation officers, counselors and personnel, all trained by the National Association of Drug Court Professionals. “The absolute best part is seeing someone who is facing jail walk out of court with a job, substance-free and as a contributing member of the community,” said Deputy District Attorney Lindsay Tanis. Wittner said he started using drugs at age 13 and had committed 49 crimes in Adams County while using. He had tried many different rehab programs, but this was the first one that worked, he said. “All the classes I went to in Drug Court, I’d already done before,” Wittner said. But this program was different because his time with his grandchildren was compro-

mised for the first time. When Wittner was still using, the days he spent with his grandchildren were the only days he wasn’t high, he said. However, when he started Drug Court, social services was involved and he wasn’t allowed to see his grandchildren unless he had a clean urine test. Now, Wittner understands that even if he hadn’t used drugs that day, his mind was still not clear. “You’re not straight until you’ve had some sober time,” he said. “You’re still foggy.” This is the longest that Wittner, who has spent 14 years altogether of his life in jail, has been sober—and he’s successfully nearing a year and a half. Wittner started working six days a week as a baker for Mile High Bakery more than a year ago. “It’s a killer job,” he said. “With this new job I see (my grandkids) at least every weekend,” usually on his off days. They spent the summer watching movies and spending the day at Lakeside Amusement Park and Elitch Gardens. Wittner is still in touch with friends from Drug Court and plans on attending their graduations. “I’m very excited for the people that get in trouble and have a chance to do something like Drug Court,” he said. “It could change people’s lives.”

VOICES Vote yes on 3A and 3B

October 20, 2016

LOCAL

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 ever-widening 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 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-

BILL CHRISTOPHER Bill’s column will return next week.

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.

Many Pumpkins to Choose If possible, visit a place with many pumpkins on display and allow enough time for children to explore, touch, and compare. Talk about sizes, texture, a wide variety of shapes and misshapes. Which ones are smiling already? Which ones look upset? At home, place pumpkins on a table and cover the entire space with paper for writing and drawing. Whole pumpkins work well for sight and sound. Look at all angles and rap on them. Pumpkin pieces and insides are great for smell and touch. Pumpkin baked goods like pumpkin bread and cookies are mighty fine for taste after the work is finished. Help children write words or draw images that represent their feelings. To spark new carving ideas search google images for free pumpkin stencils and templates. Children can combine a few ideas and draw them on the paper. You are teaching them that planning ahead for any project helps avoid tears and frustration.

Burn not thy fingers to snuff another’s candle My birthday was last week. As most of us do, I spent some time in reflection around this event, although I’ve never been one to wait for a 365-day trip around the sun to prompt my introspection. I’ve considered the happenings of the past year and speculated on what’s to come. And, as many of you know, the presidential election is one of my top concerns. So when I blew out my candles and was asked what I’d wished for, I didn’t hesitate to reply. I wish there were no “woman card” and “man’s world.” As exhilarated as I am that we finally have a female major-party nominee – no matter what you think of Hillary Clinton, this is an historic moment – I can’t help but wonder how this would all be playing out if the gender thing weren’t such as issue. For example, in addition to many vile and vulgar internet memes, comments and posts aimed at women (as well as minorities of every kind), there’s now a hashtag targeting women voters, #repealthe19th – as in the 19th amendment that tardily acknowledged women’s right to vote as citizens of the United States – after a map developed by a polling organization showed Donald Trump would win if only men voted.

I wish there were a way to compare apples to apples. Or apples to oranges. Or apples to any other kind of fruit. But there’s just not. Although the two candidates are similar in age, their life experiences could not be more different, starting with the Andrea Doray very beginnings of the paths they’ve trod. ALCHEMY If I had my choice, I would take a seasoned politician with business acumen, instead of a lifetime politician who has only ever been in public service, or a person who claims business success but has demonstrated no ability to translate it to governance. To try to compare these two on any level is futile. I wish the bar weren’t so low. A phrase I’ve heard repeated recently is that this election cycle is “a race to the bottom.” Certainly as Trump descends into Doray continues on Page 15

is required to take action after a school or district earns five consecutive low ratings. Westminster Public Schools has reached that limit and if the newest preliminary rating is finalized they will face intervention. Among its options, the state can choose to shut down schools or require the district to merge with another. Westminster Public Schools in the fall of 2009 began to phase-in what is now called a competency based system. Through it, the district did away with traditional grade-level assignments and grades. Instead, students in Westminster schools are assigned to classrooms based on their proficiency in each subject and they move up through the levels when they show they learned the content, not necessarily after a year of sitting in that class. While other districts are experimenting with competency-based models in some schools, none have moved to do it districtwide like Westminster did by the 2013-14 school year. Westminster district leaders say it’s still evolving. “One thing that has evolved over time is our tracking of our student data so we are as flexible as we can to move students when they’re ready to move,” said Pam Swanson, the district’s superintendent. “The other thing is we can never do too much communication.” Part of the model is dependent on students understanding that when they learn the content, they can ask to prove it on a test so they can move to another level. Students accelerate more when they understand how the system works, officials say. The district said it also can point to evidence that it is executing the model well. Last school year the district paid AdvancEd, a national nonprofit, to review

You can search google for pumpkin jokes and riddles. Then children can change them slightly and make up their own. You can also practice similes, a comparison using like or as. For example, pumpkins are like puffed up orange apples. Pumpkins for Poetry Now read the words and phrases they have said. Arrange them so they sound more fun, poetic, and musical. They can

name-calling, derision and outright lies, and as Clinton’s behind-the-scenes maneuverings are uncovered, these become the ignoble and, unfortunately, the memorable moments of the campaign. And the bar is not even the same for the two nominees. While Trump is considered to be a success just by sticking to a teleprompter, Clinton is also judged on her looks, her expressions, her clothing, the tone and volume of her voice, and even her laugh. I wish American politics weren’t the targets of scorn, ridicule, and even fear

the model. The group accredited the district as a result and shared recommendations to improve the system, which the district is working on now. Part of the conflict with the state’s accountability system, officials say, is that students have to be assigned a traditional grade level when they take state tests. A student may be assigned to a grade level based on their age, even if they have not had exposure to that grade level content yet. District officials call the required grouping artificial, and say that the once-a-year tests don’t reflect the growth students make. “We would love to be able to comply with state testing but to do it in a way that’s real time,” Swanson said. “If we could do it as we’re moving kids through their levels, that would make so much more sense.” Maria Worthen, vice president of federal and state policy for the International Association for K-12 Online Learning, said competency is not at odds with accountability rooted in the idea that kids should know a certain amount by a certain age. “When we talk about competencybased education, it’s about meeting students where they are and giving them all of the supports they need,” Worthen said. “We’re not talking about computerbased training. It’s not about everyone at their own pace. It’s about flexible pace. It’s about letting kids try again.” Based on data from state tests, the most recent indicator of growth showed students in Westminster were growing at a slower rate than more than half of the state. In English language arts tests, Westminster’s growth score was 47. That means Westminster students showed improvements, on average, better than 47 percent of Colorado kids who had similar scores last year. In math, Westminster’s growth score was 42. Worthen said the new federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act,

provides more opportunities for states to create systems that better account for how kids learn in competency-based systems. State officials say federal law requires students take tests based on a grade level because it allows officials to make sure students are keeping up with their peers and not being discriminated against. But Colorado is in the early stages of considering requesting flexibility from the federal government for a new state testing and accountability model. That could involve a system that is more suited for competency-based teaching, or one that also allows for testing throughout the year instead of once. “There’s not consensus across the state when it comes to what we should prioritize,” said Joyce Zurkowski, executive director of assessment at the state Department of Education. “One thing to keep in mind is that in the end, so, long term, the expectation is that the entire state will move to the same model.” Worthen said that accountability systems don’t have to be exclusively built around competency. She said that one possibility could be basing accountability on multiple assessments over a period of time instead of one single test given in the spring. “From an accountability point of view, we do want to know that no student is falling through the cracks,” Worthen said. Educators across the state have raised issues with Colorado’s accountability system for a variety of reasons. While in Westminster it revolves around the competency-based approach, teachers elsewhere have said that students who are English language learners or who have

Poetic words paint pictures and stimulate the senses that children use to learn about their world. It is too late Halloween night when the focus is on candy and costumes. Writing poetry works well with nearly any ordinary object that can be explored with the senses. Eggs, socks, rocks, toast, a favorite toy, blanket, leaves, and snow are examples to explore.

I believe that all these, some with more effort than others, are achievable. As for the wishes above, the die may already be cast. So perhaps my greatest wish, after all, is that we can emerge on the other side of Nov. 8 with enough resilience to pull ourselves out of this “race to the bottom” and once again set the standard for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

special education needs are also unprepared for the tests they are forced to take. Sharyl Kay Lawson, a special education teacher in Brighton, said that she has had students that blow through state tests in less than 20 minutes because they don’t know the material. “My kids come to me for reading because the classroom reading is way above their level,” Lawson said. “Then they’re expected to go back to class and take a regular assessment at their grade level. Recently, some district leaders also have questioned the validity of data for comparison when large numbers of students opt-out of taking the tests. Westminster district officials are writing a request asking the state to reconsider their latest rating before it is made official by January. If the request to reconsider is denied, district, officials said they would appeal to the state Board of Education. District leaders want to present the state with other evidence they say shows their district is improving, but they’re still figuring out what data the state will consider. They have also been talking to state officials about what flexibilities they wish they had in the accountability system to let them continue their competency based model while not facing intervention from the state. “Everyone here is open to having a conversation about what it is the assessment system should look like long term,” Zurkowski said. “But it needs to be something that allows for us to ensure that all of our students are getting access to high quality education regardless of race or zip code. That’s the balance and I expect there will be lots of discussion about that.”

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

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.”

‘Tartuffe’ is timeless and very timely Arvada’s Black Box rep company offers classic

IF YOU GO

By Sonya Ellingboe sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com The smiling, smarmy con man is ever with us! “Tartuffe,” written by French comedic master Moliere, was first performed in 1664 at Versailles and quite promptly banned at the request of the Archbishop of Paris — although King Louis XIV was generally supportive of the famous playwright. There were hypocrites in the 17th century too — abundant material for a writer to satirize. Contemporary local audiences will enjoy a well-paced 21st-century spin on the original, with Richard Wilbur’s poetic translation, especially clever costumes, a nifty set and a top-notch cast that is obviously having fun with this gem. They perform on a thrust stage that is dominated by a black-and-white faux marble floor, elaborate 17th-century backdrop wall and a prominent altar front and center—appropriate since Tartuffe is a man of the church and prayer is in order on occasion. The Arvada Center, in its 40th year, is trying a different approach with its charming, smaller Black Box Theatre. Veteran director Lynne Collins has come on board as artistic director for plays and the beginnings of a repertory company is introduced — a first at the center. “Tartuffe” will run through Nov. 6. Then, in February through May, “Bus Stop,” “Drowning Girls” and “Waiting for Godot” will be scheduled as each is developed, with all three on the April calendar, many of the same actors in each cast. Collins will direct “Bus Stop” and “Drowning Girls” and Geoffrey Kent, who will act in “Bus Stop,” will direct “Waiting for Godot.”

“Tartuffe” plays through Nov. 6 in the Black Box Theatre at the Arvada Center, 6901 Wadsworth Blvd., Arvada. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays; 1 p.m. Wednesdays; 2 p.m. Sundays. For talkbacks and tickets, go to arvadacenter.org/Tartuffe. Phone: 720898-7200. The title role is deftly portrayed by expert actor Michael Morgan, who plays the devious character in contrast to wealthy but simple-minded Orgon, played by equally expert Sam Gregory, a Denver Center Theatre Company and Colorado Shakespeare Festival frequent player. The pair is as skilled at silly slapstick moves and lines as they are at more serious roles. Jessica Austgen stands out as a sassy, outspoken maid, who immediately spots Tartuffe as a phony and serves as a narrator of sorts. Leslie O’Carroll plays Madame Pernelle, the grandmother — Orgon’s mother and a sucker for Tartuffe’s declarations. Orgon’s savvy brother-in-law Cleant is portrayed by Josh Robinsom. Kate Gleason, as Orgon’s frustrated wife, sees through the deceptive man’s plans and tries to trap him. Her sapphire blue costume is a particularly clever spin on period dress. Sean Scrutchins (Damis) and Emily Van Fleet (Mariane) play Orgon’s young adult children, while DU drama student Anthony Adu is the servant Valere, Mariane’s secret love. One needs to tune the ears into the script’s rhyming couplets, which we seldom encounter, but the sound is good and language and delivery are extra clear. And this is a truly funny work. Don’t miss it!

Michael Morgan, as the scheming Tartuffe, right, would seem to be blessing Orgon (Sam Gregory)—or is he? The French classic, “Tartuffe,” runs through Nov. 6 in the Arvada Center’s Black Box theater. Courtesy photo

‘The Last Romance’ is operatic achievement Love story benefits from strong script, skilled actors

By Sonya Ellingboe sellingboe@coloradocommunitymedia.com “It takes a cast with a certain amount of experience to tell this story,” said director Robert Michael Sanders in his director’s notes for “The Last Romance.” “These people on stage have just that. They have all lived a life, loved, lost and tried again.” With Joe DiPietro’s well-crafted, sweet

CURTAIN TIME

Suspense “Wait until Dark” by Frederick Knott, adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher, plays through Nov. 5 at the Avenue Theater, 417 E. 17th Ave., Denver. This thriller opened on Broadway 50 years ago and Hatcher has placed it in a new setting,

but not saccharine script and skilled actors, only a suggestion of a set is needed — a bench and projected picture of a surrounding park carry most of the action. The part of a young man, played by a man with operatic voice who introduces scenes with a familiar aria, is a novel touch and ties the scenes together in a most pleasant way, since octogenarian Ralph Bellini (the excellent Joey Wishnia) had hoped for a career in opera and continues to love it. He has walked to the dog park in the hopes of meeting an attractive woman he’d spotted earlier with her Chihuahua.

Enter Carol Reynolds (Martha Harmon Pardee), who talks to an unseen Peaches, running among furry friends. We meet Peaches (a well-behaved Rocky Balboa Van De Sanders, who is also experienced on the stage) in Act II. Carol seems reserved and brittle until Ralph makes her laugh. He wants to share his love of opera as the pair fall in love. Sanders, an experienced actor and director has paced the story just right. The other actor in this tale is Ralph’s sister, Rose Tagliantelle (Deb Curtis), who is loud, bossy and funny as she worries-and is jealous that her widower brother/

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. How To Get It If you have knee pain, the doctors and staff would like to invite you for a risk free screening to see if you are a candidate for Hyalgan treatments and the P.A.C.E program. All you have to do is call 720-500-1045 right now and when the scheduling specialist answers the phone tell her you would like your free “Knee Pain Screening.” Your screening will only take about 25-30 minutes... you will get all your questions an-

YOUR ELECTION GUIDE: • Candidates in county, state and congressional races share their views • Ballot initiatives target issues from right to die, minimum wage, arts funding and an increase to tobacco tax

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 20

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

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.

Working through the opposition to a bill allowing limited liability for the spaceport at Front Range. Trial lawyers are adamantly opposed to limiting liability at any time. This was the beginning of the development of the spaceport.

Growth must be well managed, insuring water and infrastructure are present to support it. Other governmental agencies should be included in the planning: fire districts, water districts, etc.

We must continue to develop housing that is appropriate for seniors. Aging at home must be encouraged and the services supporting that should be funded.

I have the energy and desire to continue to work for Adams County.

Every elected office has a learning curve — don’t throw away 22 months of a learning experience and start all over. My experience as well as my open communication, integrity and common sense approach of governance will continue as a dedicated servant to more than 480,000 residents.

I believe we do not provide our citizens with the best opportunity to know what is happening in county government. Therefore, I requested — and the commission agreed — to have evening meetings the first Tuesday of each month the remainder of 2016. So join us Nov. 1 and Dec. 6. The one thing I’m still not happy about is the meetings begin at 5:30 and I believe they should begin at 7 p.m. But until the rest of the commission hears from any of you, that will not happen. The majority of our citizens work and therefore cannot attend 9:30 a.m. meetings.

My position is that we are already behind the 8-ball. Growth is happening at an alarming rate. Up and down Highway 7 alone, cities from Erie on the west through Brighton on the east have approved 55,000 new home starts. We are on the grow and desperately need to be working closely with all our municipalities in planning sustainable growth. I have been endorsed by Adams County mayors (present and past).

I am advocating for of a group called Aging In Place and am putting plans in place with a group on Senior Services Poverty Workgroup. My biggest concern is that we seem to have so many fractured groups throughout the county and not enough partnering to actually see accomplishments. It is my belief we all need to be working together.

I fully support safety standards be applied in all aspects of our daily lives, not just oil and gas, as well as all the needs of the citizens of our entire county, whether it’s safety on our roads, children walking to school or a library, our veterans’ services, the mentally challenged, repeat drug or alcohol offenders, neglect of old unincorporated neighborhoods, land uses in a growing county, human services, animal shelter issues, and the list literally goes on and on.

I represent an independent voice beholden to no political party agenda or special interest group. The best interests of the constituents of Adams County are my sole focus. I pledge to thoroughly examine the issues presented for my consideration, and to make decisions based solely on the merits of the issue at hand.

I am proud of my voting record in my many years as an Aurora councilwoman. Hopefully, the taxpayers of Aurora have respected that I vote independently, always respecting their best interests. I am not easily intimidated nor succumb to pressure into “following the pack” when voting on a given issue.

Growth in Adams County is inevitable. My concern is that it be smart, well-planned and sustainable. Any contemplated growth must provide a balance of well-paying employment job opportunities, superior public safety, and a quality of life for the residents of our communities.

Any future construction of new public access buildings should be compliant with ADA accessibility requirements. We should encourage construction of superior assisted living centers as well as affordable singlestory residential housing and apartments for our senior citizens.

I am honest, dependable and readily accessible for my constituents. I am deeply concerned about the welfare of Adams County residents and am always available to personally listen to their concerns.

What is your position on the increasing growth and development in Adams County?

ate 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 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 sys-

tem 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. Ballot continues on Page 22

Adams County Commissioner District 2

Why should voters Describe an choose you for accomplishment this office? that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader.

What else should voters know about you?

I have a proven track record of being able to work with other local leaders across party lines. I was on the negotiation team with other county leaders that negotiated the DIA agreement with Denver. This deal was voted on and accepted by the voters in Adams County and Denver in 2015. The ballot question was 1A for DIA. This deal will provide amazing opportunity for economic growth in Adams County.

Growth happens where it is desirable to live. Colorado is hot right now. Adams County will continue to grow, and our only option is to help it grow responsibly. We should encourage responsible growth, and keep our regulations from being too burdensome. We should resist the urge to regulate everything and control all aspects of growth — and let the market make more decisions organically.

Understanding the reality of the county’s aging population is critical, including the changes and services needed to help people age well, the opportunities and benefits of an older population, and the problems and costs of doing nothing. An affordable housing plan needs to include keeping our seniors in their homes and independent for as long as possible. A better solutions needs to be found to address transportation needs for our senior population.

I was elected to city council and then as a county commissioner with broad bipartisan support. I know how to work across party lines on issues that are important to our community. We need to work together as a region to bring the resources that will provide a high quality of life that our families deserve in Adams County.

We need businessminded individuals leading our county government. I will never ban drilling and deny people access to their property/ mineral rights. I will seek to repeal the unethical and poorly administered stormwater fee. I will never seek to limit people to a “free speech zone.” All three of these are a stark difference from my opponent.

I have built a business, leading others, and being an example of others to create a business from scratch. I am responsible for a business that generates $1million in revenue annually. I coordinate a sizable team of workers and subcontractors to supply services to hundreds of clients, coordinating thousands of events.

Growth must be well managed, insuring water and infrastructure are present to support it. Other governmental agencies should be included in the planning: fire districts, water districts, etc.

See the previous question... If seniors have special needs, is it solely up to the government to provide them? My ears are open to proposals specifically designed for seniors — but I tread lightly when it comes to designing policy that is specifically designed for one group, as opposed to the population as a whole.

I have a lovely family — wife of 10 years and three young children, 3, 5, 7. I am an avid outdoorsman, enjoying snowboarding and tennis. I play drums and bass at a professional level and many other instruments at an expert level. My favorite way to enjoy the Colorado sun and get around the county is on my small and quiet motorcycle.

What is your position on the increasing growth and development in Adams County?

What needs to be done to ensure the county can accommodate a population with a growing number of seniors?

What else should voters know about you?

Why should voters Describe an choose you for accomplishment this office? that best illustrates your effectiveness as a leader. By my actions you know I am honest, by my reputation you know I am fair. I have real integrity and I am truly a voice for the people because I listen to the needs of the community.

Candidate did not respond to question.

I am all for growth, but it needs to be done with supervision and consideration where all business and persons are treated fairly and equally. Commerce City amended the construction defect writings to give fairness to the builder while still holding them accountable to a quality product that is presented to the public, which allows for growth, creates jobs and prevents the area from becoming stagnant. When elected, I hope to bring that vision into Adams County by being open-minded and listening to what is presented in a fair and balanced means.

Candidate did not respond to question.

I hope to gain the trust back from the employee and citizen, bring back quality services and filling positions in understaffed areas. A) Look into the Rain (fee/ tax) and eliminating it because it is unethical to the few who are required to pay (Commerce City voted against this and does not charge their citizens) B) Amending control on oil drilling boundaries because it’s a Land Owner Property Right, not the neighbor’s.

Proven track record, rated second in the nation for job growth. Regionalism with DIA 1A projects like Gaylord which will bring 10,000 jobs and 2,500 permanent positons. Commitment to schools, $1 million in scholarships last year alone. Delivering services faster and more reliably than any other time in our history.

I have pushed for innovative ideas like repurposing our tax dollars and not raising taxes or asking for new taxes while still building a new $90 million Human Service Center. We will now service more people, have greater access while not increasing the tax burden of our residents.

Growth is inevitable, responsible growth is controllable. This means a school system that meets the education levels desired and that is supported by all those in the community, builders’ businesses, residents, etc.…The balance of all needs should be that no one entity bear the entire burden of the others.

The need for senior housing, single-family homes, condos and apartments that are affordable, attainable market-ready units are a priority. Transit Oriented Development is on the rise and should include senior living units. The availability of 30-60 percent AMI homes is also something we are concerned with and working towards solutions.

Being a foster child and growing up in the system, I understand some of the challenges foster children face. I have a vested interest in changing this system to better accommodate the children who, through no fault of their own, face these challenges.

Sean Ford

Charles “Chaz” Tedesco

What needs to be done to ensure the county can accommodate a population with a growing number of seniors?

I raised my children in Adams County. Most of those years I struggled financially as a single mother. I’m aware of what our families go through during hard economic times. I have experience in balancing a municipal budget of $184 million with a 20 percent reserve during one of the worst economic times in history. I currently represent 440,000 people, balance a $484 million budget with over a 30 percent reserve and manage 1,800 employees.

Ballot Continued from Page 20

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.

October 20, 2016

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.

Proposition 107 would also allow participation by unaffiliated voters.

be interpreted to prohibit work requirements in the criminal justice system.

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 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 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

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?

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?

In the 12 years that I’ve worked in the state Legislature, I’ve fought to pass common-sense, bipartisan reforms like providing housing and job training for veterans and our service members, capping skyrocketing tuition hikes at our universities, and passing tough lobbying and campaign finance reforms to keep unaccountable money out of our politics. Washington today is broken — and we need leaders who will work across the aisle to get real results for our families.

When I was state Senate president, I sat down every one of my 34 senate colleagues and pledged to find one area of common ground that we could work on. It wasn’t always easy, but I’m proud to say that we did it — those conversations resulted in real, meaningful changes for Coloradans. Unfortunately, that bipartisan spirit doesn’t exist in Washington today — and politicians like Mike Coffman have contributed to that dysfunction.

What’s clear is that Coloradans are still spending too much money for too little health care. I believe that if you are sick, you should be able to see a doctor. That’s why we need to empower Medicare and Medicaid to negotiate drug prices — one of the highest drivers of skyrocketing health care prices.

This is a country of immigrants, and I think it’s clear to everyone, Republican and Democrat alike, that our current system is broken. We need comprehensive immigration reform now — families across this country are being torn apart, doing great damage to our communities and to our economy. Any reform deal should include a pathway to citizenship and the DREAM Act.

I am laser-focused on winning and representing the best interests of the 6th Congressional District. While I don’t agree with Hillary Clinton on everything, it’s clear that Donald Trump is completely unqualified to serve as commander-in-chief. But we also need to realize that Donald Trump didn’t appear out of thin air — he is the product of extremists in Congress who have been peddling the same hateful, radical rhetoric long before Donald Trump decided to run.

I grew up in this district. I attended public school in this district. I understand, first hand, the challenges and the opportunities afforded us. I have and will stand up to Washington and fight for you — for a stronger economy, to cut onerous regulations on small business, for lower taxes so families can keep more of what they earn, and I will fight to keep us safe. I understand the need to maintain a strong military but also to cut wasteful Pentagon spending.

Our duty is not merely the preservation of political power but the preservation of peace and freedom. Our duty should be to country first. I have record of standing up to the leadership of both parties when it’s called for and reaching across the aisle on a range of issues to do what is best for Colorado and the nation. For example, I was the first Republican to co-sponsor and support the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, legislation that prevents discrimination against pregnant women in the workplace.

Obamacare isn’t working. The bottom line, broken promises, penalties, rules and red tape have made health insurance more expensive and worse for Coloradans. My opponent has advocated for a health care system that would be MORE expensive than Obamacare. She has supported astronomical tax increases to fund a single-payer, Canadian-style system. We absolutely disagree on this point. More government is NOT the answer. We need to start over and implement reforms that are patient-centered and focus on reducing costs and improving quality.

I believe we must adhere to three principles: we must secure our borders, grow our economy and keep families together. I also believe we need to reform our legal immigration system to be a skills-based system and make the process less cumbersome and more supportive of those who want to come to this country to live the American dream. I support a legal status but not a special path to citizenship for the adults who knowingly violated our immigration laws. I have been and will continue to be an outspoken proponent for reform

I’m a Marine. And for me, our country always comes first. Whoever wins, my duty is to you. So if Donald Trump’s the president, I’ll stand up to him — plain and simple. And if Hillary Clinton wins, I’ll hold her administration accountable — every day. My job is simple — work hard and serve you.

How can you do a good job of ensuring progress in your district?

Describe an What will your accomplishment top priority be if that best illustrates elected? your effectiveness as a leader.

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

Over my 13 years of practice, I have experienced the best and worst sides of the judicial system in Judicial District 17. My extensive experience in the district has made it abundantly clear that there is a need for fundamental change in the DA’s office. Due to my criminal defense background, I bring to the district and the office a unique insight and experience within the judicial system that has been lacking and will be highly beneficial to law enforcement and the community.

The office of DA is the “gatekeeper” to the judicial system and with that there is a fundamental obligation in providing the highest level of safety to the community and its citizens, while protecting the constitutional rights of those in the judicial system. I am dedicated to enforcing the laws of the district and Colorado in a fair and just manner and am committed to the absolute need to protect the community, particularly the children, and to create strong, trusting and communicative relationships with law enforcement. These relationships have, at best, been strained under the current DA, if not lost.

A key component to my leadership at this office will be forging strong relationships between law enforcement and the community by evaluating and improving youth and adult intervention programs and postconviction rehabilitative programs. Through productive collaboration, I will strive to unite the community on all levels and backgrounds as we work together from the bottom up, to protect the safety of our community, unlike the current topdown approach from the DA’s office.

I assisted in passing the H2B Visa bill and Birthing Kits to China while working in Washington D.C., where I not only managed her significant staff, but coordinated votes with other congressmen and their staffs to achieve passage.

My top priority will be restoring trust in the DA’s office and its ability to provide a more efficient judicial system. This will obviously include an evaluation of the office, staff and attorneys to best meet that goal.

I am seeking re-election because of my passionate commitment to continue to serve the community of Adams and Broomfield counties as their chief law enforcement officer. Although our office has made significant progress in my first term as the elected District Attorney, there is still work that needs to be done, and as one of the most experienced District Attorneys in the state, I am the only qualified candidate to get the job done

To keep experience and integrity in the 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. To continue to keep our community safe, seek justice for victims of crime and to assure that offenders are treated fairly in our criminal justice system. As a prosecutor for 25 years, I have spent almost half of my life seeking justice and the truth in the criminal justice system. As the elected District Attorney, our office has a proven track record and through my leadership, our office is recognized as the best District Attorney’s Office in the state.

With a proven track record over the past four years, our office has led the 17th Judicial District criminal justice system in innovative ways to assure the public is safe, seek justice for victims of crime and continue to treat defendant’s fair in the criminal justice system. Our office will continue to seek justice on each criminal case we prosecute to assure violent offenders will not harm anyone else. Our Diversion program will continue to divert first-time criminal offenders out of the criminal justice system to continue reducing the recidivism rate in the 17th Judicial District.

There are many accomplishments that demonstrate my leadership over the past 25 years as a prosecutor. Through my leadership as the chair of the 17th Judicial Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC), we have been recognized nationally, and as well as in Colorado, for our innovative ways of improving the criminal justice system in our District. We established three subcommittees, Behavioral Health, Information Sharing and Alternative Sanctions, that are taking on criminal justice issues head on.

As the top law enforcement official in the 17th Judicial District, public safety will continue to be my top priority. Our office will continue to pursue our mission statement which is: “To pursue justice through the fair and ethical prosecution of criminal offenders, To seek justice for victims of crime, to create a safer community through positive partnership with law enforcement and other community members, and to earn and hold the trust and respect of the citizens that we are privileged and honored to serve.”

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 most deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016? Explain why.

I’m running for office to bring some reason and common sense to the state Capitol. I’ve dedicated my career to bringing people together around common values and I intend to continue to do so for the people of my district. I will work every day to improve education and mental health services, cut red tape for small businesses and to defend women’s rights and our Colorado way of life.

In 2009 I traveled to all 50 states to find and share stories of ordinary people solving problems in their communities. By highlighting the work of ordinary problem-solvers I was able to drive attention to their cause, in some instances earning them substantial contributions as well as motivating others to see that no matter what they look like or sound like, how much money or education they have, they can make a difference in their community.

Especially in an election year like this, it can be easy to forget how much we have in common. But when we start from shared values — a desire to strengthen the middle class and reward hard work — I know we can get things done. We share the same goals, just have different ideas of how to get there. I will always focus on the goal and be open to new ideas on how to get us there.

We have to do more to improve our roads and infrastructure to keep up with our booming population. No one wants to be stuck in traffic when they could be spending time with their friends or family. In the short-term, we can pass the hospital provider fee fix, which will give us budget flexibility to put millions of dollars into our highways without raising tax rates. In the long-term, I think we should reevaluate where we are spending our money and get our priorities in order.

We should focus on creating jobs and strengthening the middle class. Colorado’s economy is growing, but the economic recovery hasn’t reached everyone and has left too many people in my community behind. We need to focus on making it easier to get ahead, easier to save for college and a down payment for your first home, and easier to get trained for the high-paying jobs that are flocking to our great state.

Being a State Representative is challenging, and having lived and raised a family in Colorado since 1979, I know the needs and expectations of families, businesses and educators in this growing north metro area. For the last two years, I have served on the education and the social services committees where the lives of our constituents are directly served.

The accomplishment that I am particularly pleased with is the housing for our homeless and disabled veterans on the Fitzsimons Campus in Aurora. The project had been sitting in limbo for 15 years after the project had been transferred by the Army to the Colorado Department of Human Services.

I think that it is important for both parties to agree on what are the priorities that are a must for Colorado and avoid duplication of services and costs.

There are a couple of options. 1) I strongly support the private development of roads paid for by a toll system (e.g. C470). This would be a bit tricky with roads that go through the urban areas but it would allow funding for bridges. 2) Raising taxes is an option that I do not want. 3) Bonds.

I think we continue to address the education system in Colorado. The current system is lacking when students, who just graduated from high school and want to go to college, must take remedial courses. Either they did not get the education they needed or they should opt for another means to get the education needed to make a living (internship or apprenticeships prior to graduation).

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 most deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016? Explain why.

I am a Thornton kid raised and educated by the community. As I have grown up and raised my own family, I have seen how much the city and district have changed. I have used my education and experience to craft important state legislation to improve the lives of my constituents. I am called “The People’s Champion” by numerous community organizations because I cannot be bought by big special interests and I cannot be bullied.

I led the charge against the oil and gas pipeline bill in 2014. This bill would have allowed oil and gas pipeline companies to condemn private property without any real checks and balances. Conservative and liberal Coloradans across the state sought my help to protect their private property and to kill the bill. Despite threats from big special interests, I succeeded in killing the bill before it was heard on the House floor.

There is a perception that we, as legislators, do not know how to work together. That perception is wrong. A vast majority of our bills reach the Governor’s desk bipartisanly. Yet, on transportation and infrastructure issues, we need to work better together to prioritize those projects requiring immediate attention. A bipartisan task force identifying the most pressing projects would help both parties work better together for all of Colorado.

Colorado needs a multipronged approach to our transportation system. Not only do we need to expand and improve our roads, but also we need more light rail and busing services. Our currentbudgetary constraints simply cannot keep up with the amount of growth. We need to keep all funding options on the table, such as Public/Private Partnerships and seek additional federal funding.

Colorado has some of the best-paying, high-level jobs in the nation. Coloradans cannot fill these jobs because of a lack of educational attainment. Our K-12 schools are some of the worst-funded in the nation, and tuition at our public colleges and universities is beyond what most families can afford. Our most pressing need in 2017 is better and more targeted education funding for both K-12 and lower higher education tuition costs.

Many of the issues we are facing today have impacted all of us on some level. It’s time to come together to find solutions that work. I am tired of the divisive agendas brought forward by elected officials, and I have heard the same frustrations from the people living in our community. As your State Representative, I will listen to the people that live here, and be a voice for them at the Capitol.

An accomplishment that best illustrates my effectiveness is the success of my students. As an at-risk student, I know how much it meant to me to have a professor who believed in me and inspired me to become who I am today. I’ve heard from so many students and families how much they appreciated my passion in the classroom. Seeing these students today pursuing their own dreams, knowing that I have been an inspiration to them, is by far one of my greatest accomplishments.

We have to build relationships and work together in order to move forward and find solutions for our state. Our elected officials must have a desire to not only work with others, but also be willing to listen to a variety of input and ideas without forcing their own personal agenda.

Congestion on our roads and highways is definitely one of the biggest issues in our state, and one that I frequently hear about at the door. With so many people moving to Colorado, transportation must be made a priority. Bonding, which included projects in the metro area and statewide, and a variety of other solutions need to be revisited, and there has to be open and transparent bidding so the public knows how tax dollars are used.

Last year, we saw over 100,000 people move to Colorado. Single-family homes are selling at record highs and rent just keeps going up. Our affordable housing options have dwindled and many are left wondering where they are going to live. Construction defects reform is a major issue, and deserves attention early on. I am confident that we can protect both our homeowners and our quality builders by working together to fix this problem.

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 most deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016? Explain why.

House District 32 is a large, vibrant and diverse district. We are facing extraordinary challenges as a result of changing demographics and anticipated economic development opportunities. Our residents of Commerce City and the many unincorporated neighborhoods deserve continued strong, vital representation at the Capitol. My experience and history of advocacy on behalf of the community will help me to continue that legacy of leadership.

In 1982, I was one of a small number of mostly female volunteers who launched public radio station KUVO, 89.3 FM. The station has been broadcasting in the metro area for more than 30 years. I served as the first Chair of the Board of Directors and helped guide the development of this station from nothing more than an idea and a belief that we can do this.

Both parties should try to focus their efforts on what is in the best interests of all of Colorado. This will certainly mean talking to one another more and a willingness to compromise when appropriate.

Colorado roads are primarily funded by the highway use tax on fuel purchases. This tax has not been raised since 1993. Because cars have become much more fuel efficient and some don’t use fuel at all, this tax has not kept up with even our maintenance costs and is not fairly shouldered by all residents. In 2009, the FASTER bill provided for increases in dollars collected from vehicle registrations and allowed for some creative financing by CDOT for new transportation projects.

If I am elected, I will focus my efforts on the following major issues facing our communities: support for working families, including fighting for jobs that pay a livable wage and working to increase muchneeded affordable housing; working with school districts to find opportunities for all students to succeed by supporting full-day kindergarten and increasing access to higher education and apprentice programs; and criminal justice reform that will keep our communities safe, build trust in our law enforcement and ensure fairness in the criminal justice process.

I want to improve education by improving the courses that will enable our high school graduates to get lucrative jobs in their future. I want all of them to learn enough about the USA to be able to pass the U.S. citizenship test. I want to examine the state regulations that are preventing the establishment and growth of small and independent businesses. They are the ones that create jobs. It is imperative that the legislature discuss with business what is stifling their efforts to expand. Child safety, a safe home for every child.

My ability to operate and make decisions alone. Indeed, the major quality of a leader is to make decisions based upon his own evaluation of a situation. As a columnist and as a writer, I am solely responsible for the results. Once I have made the final decisions, I can easily and confidently ask others to help me complete the task at hand.

It is rather simple. Once the legislature is sworn in, both parties must realize that their responsibilities are to the people of Colorado. We made promises to our constituents to represent them. Each district has a mixture of Republican, Democrat and others mixed in. We are in the legislature to represent all of them.

In spite of major efforts to create a better public transportation system, people often prefer to travel in their own vehicles. And, often it is necessary. I can understand the need for filling pot holes, etc. However, it often seems one cannot drive in any direction without running into some kind of construction. Perhaps the solution to traffic problems will be less construction – not more.

I see the three I have been running on as very important. Not simply one. An education system that prepares our high school graduates to compete with not just other graduates in the USA, but the graduates in Peking, Tokyo, London, etc. Unrestricted business growth so as to create jobs. Child safety: Insure every child a safe home with his family.

What issue most deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016? Explain why.

I believe there is a bright future ahead for Broomfield, Superior and Erie, and I’d like to help make it happen. My wife Katie and I are raising our two kids in this community and want to make sure they have a great place to grow up. I think my experience as a prosecutor and working with local leaders from all backgrounds will help us achieve some great things.

As a deputy district attorney, obtaining a conviction in a domestic violence case can be incredibly difficult because you have to work closely with victims who often have to confront their accusers in open court in front of total strangers. It takes a lot of preparation and the pressure is high, but it’s incredibly important work that I was proud to do.

It would be better if elected officials of all parties focused less on personal political victories and more on victories for everyday citizens. Nearly all political conflicts are soon forgotten, but making a positive impact on people’s lives can live on for decades.

We need adequate funding for the maintenance of the roads and bridges we have and for new infrastructure to support our growing community. Colorado’s current sources of revenue for transportation have been rendered ineffective by inflation and changes in technology, and so we need to bring folks from all backgrounds together to figure out what’s next. I’m proud to be endorsed by the Colorado Contractors’ Association, a major organization working on this problem.

The General Assembly failed to address the Hospital Provider Fee in 2016, and that should be a top priority in 2017. While it’s a complicated issue, it’s incredibly important to providing the education and transportation that our citizens need. Business groups like the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry came together with education groups like the Colorado Education Association to support the legislation, and we need to make sure it passes this year.

As the quote says, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” I want a change in the way politics is played and an end to the two-party game. I want to be a representative for my district that listens to the people and does the right thing, not the political thing. Voters should elect me to be part of responsible government.

I believe in leadership through example, and bringing people together to work towards a mutually satisfying outcome. The best leaders are ones who encourage you to live up to your best potential and, instead of just telling everyone what to do or how to do it, roll up their sleeves and show you how it’s done.

By sending a Libertarian to make sure they do. Too often candidates get into office and find their party expects full compliance with the party line, which gives them little room to reach across the aisle. I can work with both parties, and be the middle ground where both sides can find compromise and do the work that voters sent them to do.

Encouraging cities to work together, along with RTD and the state, to collectively forecast growth and future needs, and ensure that one city’s growth does not pose an undue burden without agreement and compensation to alleviate the problems, would be one area that the state could be effective in managing congestion and transit issues.

Education. We’re spending a lot of money in this country on education without getting great results. Our kids deserve a world-class education, one that isn’t just being taught for testing’s sake. Our teachers deserve to do the job they are so passionate about without being told how to teach by corporations. We have problems funding our kids’ educations, not because we don’t have money to spend, but because how, when and why it is spent is contributing to the problem.

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 most deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016? Explain why.

We live in a diverse, dynamic and rapidly evolving district where the solutions of the past are inadequate for the issues of the future. We must be able to look beyond the status quo and allow ourselves the freedom of exercising new ideas and a fresh approach to government. This is what I offer: innovative representation for a better, brighter tomorrow.

As NCOIC of a battlefield weather detachment, it was my job to coordinate severe weather response between two, often contentious, branches of the military and the federal, state and local government entities that had jurisdiction over our operating area. When a tornado outbreak occurred, I was able to implement our meteorological contingency operations plan and coordinate the actions of these competing interests and stakeholders. For my actions related to this event, I was awarded an Army Commendation Medal.

Often, our representatives put too much focus on what divides them while allowing what unites them to become lost in partisanship. This culture of obstructionism seems to be running rampant, but it must be understood that the political divisiveness we have all seen from our legislature is symptomatic of single-minded schools of thought and outmoded ways of thinking. Ensuring progress at the Capitol means ensuring that candidates free from special interests replace career politicians and upend the status quo.

The expansion of transportation programs and opportunities is essential to helping alleviate traffic congestion, reducing our carbon footprint and strengthening the economic vitality of House District 34 and the entire metro area. Upward mobility, especially for the at-risk, elderly and lowincome populations of our communities, is dependent upon access to reliable public transportation. We must focus on developing initiatives that make modes of public transportation safer, more comprehensive, more affordable and more efficient.

There are over 500 bridges in our state that the American Society of Civil Engineers has declared structurally deficient. We will have over $7 billion in drinking water infrastructure needs, and over $1 billion in wastewater infrastructure needs in the next 20 years. We have 387 high hazard dams, 18 hazardous waste sites, 55 miles of levees and 2,688 miles of freight rail that all require immediate attention. Our critical infrastructure needs must finally become a priority.

I served honorably in the United States Marine Corps. Now, I want to continue to serve you as your state representative. The people of Thornton, Northglenn, Federal Heights and Adams County trust me to represent them because of my experience as an elected leader. And residents here in Adams County have witnessed how I fight for them at the sate Capitol.

In 2008, I was the mayor pro tem of Thornton, and the state was considering the “FASTER” bill which would raise revenue from license plates to pay for roads and bridge repair around the state. In the spring of that same year I noticed that none of the bridges on the state’s top 50 priority list were in Adams County. I contacted Adams County legislators and convinced the legislators to remain “neutral” on the legislation until the Colorado Department of Transportation placed several Adams County bridges on the priority list.

I work with Republicans and Democrats at the Capitol on legislation and good policy for the people of Colorado. I will continue to do this as your state representative.

Federal, state and local jurisdictions must work together to expand public transportation including bus and passenger rail. New revenue is needed for roads.

Education and economic development are the two issues we must focus on for Colorado. Education, including two-year schools that prepare our students for job opportunities, and creating a positive business environment are critical for jobs and Colorado’s continued success.

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

What issue most deserves more attention during the 2017 session than it saw in 2016? Explain why.

If voters want a normal, everyday person who is like them and will represent them, with real-world experience in working multiple jobs, paying down student loans, making ends meet as the cost of living increases, then they should vote for me. I’m not a career politician. My goals are to bring back representation and power to the people and promote sound policies that help, not hurt, my voters.

In terms of business, I increased e-commerce sales by over 30 percent in one year. I trained new hires, developed more efficient business practices without cost increases, explored new sales channels and worked to expand our consumer base in conjunction with marketing. To me, this is real-world, practical experience that created a significantly positive outcome for the company. I will bring this same approach and leadership to the Capitol.

It’s really time to listen to what the people want. There is a lot of “us vs. them” at the Capitol: This does nothing to serve our constituents. It’s time to put aside personal and party agendas and focus on the people of Colorado.

We need to continue to develop and fund our roadways, adding lanes, roads and maintenance. “They” have been talking about putting in a light rail in certain areas for over 30 years and we have yet to see it happen. We need to invest wisely in logical and long-lasting solutions. If transportation is a priority, then we need to fund it as a priority and our legislators did not do that last session.

In talking to my voters, I hear many issues. The main ones are education and our economy. 2016 saw a reduction in education funding due to other priorities in the state budget and more regulations on businesses, hampering growth. Many people want to send their children to good schools. Many are struggling to get by, looking for better jobs. We need to focus on our households, not big government, and allow people to succeed.

My No. 1 priority is to be accountable and transparent to my constituents. Since 2007, my campaigns have knocked on nearly 40,000 doors. At every stop we make, I hand out my cell phone and ask people about their hopes, dreams and concerns for our state. I then take this input to work hard to deliver policy at the state Capitol that makes the lives of HD 35 residents better.

Last session I lead a bipartisan effort with Sen. Beth Martinez-Humenik to pass the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. The bill ensures basic accommodations for pregnant workers, like more bathroom breaks and access to water bottles, because no woman should have to choose between a health pregnancy and a paycheck. Negotiations were tough but we brought together businesses, chambers of commerce, pregnant workers and advocates. Everyone’s ideas and concerns were heard, and ultimately we got the job the done.

Everyone at the Capitol is in that building working hard because they want to make Colorado a better state. If we start with acknowledging good intentions, and establishing what we have in common and entering into conversations and negotiations with respect, we can find ways to work together. At the Capitol, 96 percent of my votes are non-partisan, and I look forward to working across the aisle to deliver for all Coloradans.

We need to be creative about getting more money into transportation. One solution would be reclassifying the hospital provider fee to free up more dollars for transportation. Other creative solutions could be working with the business community to develop more public-private partnerships and the use of technology for managing traffic. Road congestion is affecting our quality of life and our economy, and we must take steps to upgrading our transportation system.

Education, transportation and economic security need to be a priority this session. As the economy grows we must ensure that every family has a fair shot at success, which means providing access to paid family leave, equal pay for equal work and access to affordable child care. We must prioritize education because it is the cornerstone of making sure every child in our community can achieve the American Dream.

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

I will bring a more inclusive and more bipartisan brand of legislative leadership to the Colorado Senate. I am a candidate who will be inclusive of all of the parties. I will set up regular monthly bipartisan meetings, where we as a District 23 community will come together to address the issues that matter to our district. I will serve as the point person for our towns and communities, in pursuing our goals.

I have been able to bring liberal and conservative school boards together to help create viable alternatives for non-traditional students. It is a testament to what folks can do if they come together. I have helped over a thousand at-risk kids pursue their educational goals, here and around the world.

Each individual representative must approach state problems from a solutions-oriented perspective, not ideological. Being humble enough to listen to individual ideas and being willing to forge common-sense alliances to pass legislation is needed to move Colorado forward.

I plan to lead the charge for improving our transportation infrastructure by bringing together a public, private and municipal partnership to improve transportation all along the Front Range by developing light rail, improving lanes on the major highways and developing other alternatives measures such as unique fast lanes for buses.

Developing and improving our infrastructure is an issue of great importance. Colorado is one of the fastest growing states in America, and we have to keep up with our infrastructure development, or we will face serious problems in the near future. We are already facing overcrowded roads that need repair and improvement. We face high rental occupancy, which is causing large rent increases, placing huge burdens on seniors, veterans and other vulnerable citizens. Our schools are becoming overcrowded and additional schools are needed to alleviate the high numbers.

The people I represent are my No. 1 priority. Many bills I run are written with, and by, the people I represent, whether they’re Democrat, Republican or unaffiliated .

Passing bills unanimously through the Senate and House. Two examples : The Mom’s Bill, written by moms who never thought they would have a voice in their children’s education. Now, they are uniting across the State. Also, my Veterinary Pharmaceutical Bill gives veterinarians and vet supply business owners a voice on the Board of Pharmacy that they never had before.

Be sure we, at the state level, keep our focus on the limited role of government. And always remember it is the people we serve.

Taxpayer funds have been misspent resulting in public mistrust in the way the public transportation system is prioritized. Past mistakes need to be rectified and public confidence restored.

Keeping our state spending in line with our state revenues. Legislators cannot continue to expand government programs without the funding to cover the cost.

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’m running because I care about my community. I first ran after I saw the devastating budget cuts during the Great Recession. Those impacted the most did not have a voice at the table, not because they don’t care, but because keeping food on the table is more important. I believe all hard-working Coloradans should be given the opportunities they need to get ahead, and I want to be their voice at the state Capitol.

In my last year at the Department of Human Services, the Trinidad State Nursing Home was losing money and needed $8 million in repairs. I lead the effort to sell the nursing home rather than closing it, which would have displaced residents, laid off workers and devastated the local economy. The sale was a common-sense decision that worked for everyone: The elderly kept their home, the employees kept their jobs and the community kept its second largest employer.

I think when you work across the aisle, you develop a better policy. In my one term, every bill that I carried received support from both parties. The best example is the budget. When I was on the Budget Committee, we had to craft a budget that worked for the entire committee or it would not move forward. The result was a budget that better met the needs of our state.

Colorado’s budgetary constraints leave us unable to update our infrastructure. Instead we spend available revenue on emergency repairs. As a first step, the legislature needs to designate the hospital provider fee as an enterprise. This would free up millions of dollars slated to go to road projects. In the long term, voters will have to allow the state to keep the revenue already collected above the cap, allowing us to make these needed investments.

The state budget. Colorado currently has two opposing laws in the state constitution: Amendment 23, which requires an increase in education spending, and TABOR, which artificially caps all spending. Colorado experiences a budget shortfall because of this limit, despite having enough revenue. So the state will likely cut K-12 education and completely ignore transportation funding next year, despite our growing economy and booming population. We need to address our budget problems or risk falling further behind.

As a fifth generation Adams County resident, I have been a leader in our community for many years. I am a small business owner who has a history of creating jobs. I will continue to fight for lower taxes, oppose job-killing Obamacare and will promote free enterprise policies that empower fellow job creators and grow our economy. I believe that a high-quality and innovative education system is the foundation to a strong, vibrant economy and community.

In 2010, I sponsored HB1264 to help make our state government more efficient by providing our state employees with incentive to identify and eliminate government waste, fraud and abuse. Despite Democrat control of both chambers of the legislature and the governor’s office, I was able to get this Bill passed and enacted with bipartisan support. This illustrates my ability to bridge the partisan divide and get things done for Colorado.

Both parties must come together and focus on our state’s budget priorities, rather than the partisan issues that continue to divide us. To do this, we must improve the level of dialog and debate, and eliminate the partisan bickering that often results in gridlock in Denver.

Our current infrastructure is not equipped to handle the considerable population growth we’ve seen in recent decades. I will work hard to ensure that our highways and bridges get the attention that they need. I will continue to support legislation that will extend Transportation Bonds that will enable us to fast-track construction of critical road, bridge and transit projects, all without raising taxes.

Due to current issues with the housing market in Colorado, too many families are being priced out of Adams County and the Front Range. We must do more to help give our residents access to affordable housing. To accomplish this, we must reform our current overreaching construction litigation laws. This will help us to grow more efficiently and help us all achieve economic prosperity.

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.

Study suggests limit on human life span 115 may be outer edge of what is possible

Count the

We can greatly extend the life spans of many different types of animals. I don’t think humans are an exception,

By Alicia Chang Associated Press Just how long can people live? New research suggests there may be a limit to our life span — one that’s hard to extend without some sort of breakthrough that fixes all age-related problems. The record for the world’s oldest person is 122 years and the odds of shattering that record are slim, according to an analysis published Oct. 5 in the journal Nature. “It seems extremely difficult if not impossible to break through that ceiling due to the complexity of the aging process,” one of the researchers, Jan Vijg, a geneticist at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, said in an email. Life expectancies in many countries have risen dramatically because of improvements in medical care and sanitation in the last century. The maximum age of death has also increased, leading some to believe that there’s no boundary to how long people can live. In the new study, researchers analyzed mortality data from a global database. They found that while there have been strides in reducing deaths among certain groups — children, women during childbirth and the elderly — the rate of improvement was slower for those over 100 years old. Next they examined how old

David Sinclair, geneticist at Harvard Medical School

centenarians were when they died. The record holder is Jeanne Calment, of France, who lived until 122 years old. Since her death in 1997, no one has broken her record. The researchers calculated the odds of someone reaching 125 years in a given year are less than 1 in 10,000. They think the human life span more likely maxes out at 115 years. Some aging specialists said the study doesn’t take into account advances that have been made in extending the life span — and health — of certain laboratory animals including mice, worms and flies through genetic manipulation and other techniques. The goal is to eventually find treatments that might slow the aging process in humans and keep them healthier longer. “We can greatly extend the life spans of many different types of animals. I don’t think humans are an exception,” said David Sinclair, a geneticist at Harvard Medical School and a spokesman for the

American Federation For Aging Research. S. Jay Olshansky, a longevity researcher at the University of Illinois at Chicago, said it remains to be seen just how much further life span can be stretched with technology. “If we succeed, current limits are likely to be broken. How much they are broken depends on the nature of the breakthrough,” he said in an email. Studies of centenarians have found that lifestyle choices play a bigger role than genetics in their longevity and most were able to delay disease and disability until late in life. Among supercentenarians _ people who survive to 110 years old or longer _ genes are key. Instead of searching for an anti-aging pill, people should focus on eating better and exercising to stay healthy in their twilight years, said Dr. Thomas Perls, professor of geriatrics at Boston University who heads the New England Centenarian Study.

Breast cancer affects us all, and early detection can save lives. There is no cure for breast cancer, but mammograms can save lives by finding breast cancer as early as possible. Every woman, beginning at age 40, should schedule a mammogram and a physical every year. Women should also perform a thorough breast self-exam once a month. Help spread awareness in your community by educating your neighbors and friends on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, and encourage the women you know to schedule a mammogram today.

Horizon comes close but doesn’t advance Big inning dooms Hawks against Douglas County By Jim Benton jbenton@coloradocommunitymedia.com Horizon softball coach Gary Mares was both proud and disappointed following the Region 4 Class 5A state qualifying tournament at Metzler Park in Castle Rock. The Hawks had two chances to qualify for the Oct. 21-22 state tournament which will be held at the Aurora Sports complex. Horizon was missing two pitchers in Miranda Medrano who didn’t pitch this season because of shoulder problems and Kayla Kasack who tore her ACL in an outfield drill early in the season. Still, the Hawks scrapped and battled for a chance to join 16 other teams for the two days of competition in the state tournament. Horizon, seeded 29th among the 32 regional teams, overcame a 5-0 deficit by scoring three runs in the sixth and

Leaves, leagues change, but not results

Fall is the time for change. Leaves on trees change color and fall off. And this past week, I’ve had to change the climatecontrol system in the car from air conditioning during the warmth of the Jim Benton afternoon to the heat OVERTIME in the evening to take off the chill. There has also been 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.

Taylor Humpries hit a solo home run and Courtnie Heller, who injured her knee in the first game against Douglas County, hit a 2-run homer in the loss to Rock Canyon and singled in the Hawks’ third game. “I never thought we would be in this position, losing two pitchers, so I’m proud of the team,” said Mares. “Still I’m disappointed to lose after coming this close.” Horizon finished the season with a 9-13-0 record. 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.

The District intends to fully consume the exchanged water, and subject to the terms and conditions in the 01CW258 Decree, the exchanged water may be used to extinction for the uses described herein either directly or after diversion or re-diversion to storage. CLAIM FOR FINDING OF REASONABLE DILIGENCE AND TO MAKE ABSOLUTE 5. Outline of work and expenditures during the diligence period towards completion of the appropriation and application of water to a beneficial use: The District provides water and wastewater services to approximately 50,000 customers in Commerce City and Adams County. The District maintains a diverse portfolio of water rights – both conditional and absolute – in order to provide potable and non-potable water to its present and future customers. The conditional ground water rights for the SACWSD Alluvial Wells and the SACWSD 01CW258 Exchanges (collectively the “Subject Conditional Water Rights”) are integral to the District’s overall water supply system, and the District has during the diligence period and will continue to pursue development and beneficial use of these water rights as growth continues and water demands increase within District. The diligence period for the Subject Conditional Water Rights is September 15, 2010 through September 15, 2016 (“Diligence Period”). The District’s 2011 Water System Master Plan anticipates that, at build out, the District will require a municipal water supply of 37,152 acre-feet of water per year. To meet this demand, the District has and will continue to construct and put into production the SACWSD Alluvial Wells. At present, the District has completed and put into production Wells 31, 35, 81, 82, 84, 85 and 91 in the Northeast Well Field; Wells 83, 86, 93, and 94 in the Northwest Well Field; and Well 88 in the Southwest Well Field. Well 100 in the Northwest Well Field and Well 105 in the Southwest Well Field have been drilled, and will be put into production when necessary. The District has pursued development of Well 103 in the Southwest Well Field by conducting hydrogeological mapping and drilling test holes at the well site and, during the Diligence Period, the District acquired, at a cost of approximately $391,000, the property interests the District will need to construct Well 103. Further, the District is currently undertaking a significant expansion of its non-potable delivery system, and this expansion will further facilitate the delivery and use of water pumped by the SACWSD Alluvial Wells. The District spent approximately $400,000 on its non-potable system expansion during the Diligence Period and has budgeted nearly $9 million towards the completion of the project in its upcoming budget year. The SACWSD Alluvial Wells are included in the District’s plan for augmentation, as decreed in Consolidated Cases Nos. W-8440-76 and W-8517-77 and subsequent Case Nos. W-8440-76A-D, and as expanded in Cases Nos. 97CW353, 00CW102, 01CW258, 07CW303, 06CW285 and 10CW304 and pending Cases Nos. 05CW115 and 15CW3177. The SACWSD 01CW258 Exchanges, in conjunction with the operation of the District’s plan for augmentation, are and will be used by the District to augment stream depletions associated with the SACWSD Alluvial Wells or to exchange the District’s fully consumable water associated with certain sources of substitute supply into storage for use within the District’s municipal system and/or for subsequent release for augmentation purposes. During the Diligence Period, the District spent approximately $25,000 each year on the operation and maintenance of the Fulton Ditch augmentation station, and on work negotiating, executing and implementing agreements for the District’s future use of Wattenberg Reservoir and the Joint Denver Gravel Pit Lakes. The Subject Conditional Water Rights are part of the District’s integrated water supply system to supply water for municipal purposes. “When a project or integrated system is comprised of several features, work on one feature of the project or system shall be considered in finding that reasonable diligence has been shown on the development of the water rights for all features of the entire project or system.” C.R.S. §37-92 301(4)(b). Consequently, all work and expenditures by the District in connection with its municipal water system directly and indirectly constitute part of the District’s reasonable diligence in developing the Subject Conditional Water Rights. During the Diligence Period, the District has engaged in the following activities and incurred the following costs in its efforts to develop, operate and maintain its municipal water supply system and develop the Subject Conditional Water Rights, to complete the appropriation, and place the water to beneficial use: 5.1 The District has incurred an average of approximately $1,360,000 per year in general costs and expenses in support of its municipal water supply system and for maintaining, protecting and expanding its system. 5.2 Over the Diligence Period, the District has incurred an average of $240,000 per year in engineering fees for engineering work in support of its municipal supply system generally, and has incurred additional engineering fees each year associated with specific capital improvement projects. 5.3 On average during the Diligence Period, the District spent approximately $835,000 per year on capital improvement projects associated with its municipal supply system. Since 2010, the District’s improvements have been focused on increasing the availability of non-potable water for irrigation uses within the District, and beginning in 2017, the District intends to undertake an expansion of its non-potable irrigation supply. The District estimates that it will ultimately spend more than $202 million for build-out of its municipal system by 2056. 5.4 The District incurred a total of $1,355,480 in engineering fees associated with maintenance of its existing water supplies, including but not limited to such activities as accounting for the District’s water use, operation of and accounting for the District’s plan for augmentation, protecting the District’s water rights from injury by opposing water court applications, and assisting the District with daily water operations. Of the total amount of engineering fees incurred during the Diligence Period, $405,792 was spent on operating, maintaining and accounting for the District’s plan for

*Wells may have pumped at the claimed maximum pumping rate on numerous occasions. As part of this Application, the District may provide evidence that the maximum pumping rate was achieved on the date identified in this Application or on another date. *The maximum annual volume of 1,185.5 af/yr represents the volume of water that has been pumped between November 1, 2015 and the end of July 2016 from Well 88 and the Southwest Well Field. The District will continue to operate Well 88 through the end of the 2016 water year, and as part of this Application, the District may seek to make absolute a volume of water in excess of 1,185.5 af, without the need to amend this Application. 6.1 Total annual well pumping from all SACWSD Alluvial Wells: In 2014, the District pumped a maximum of 2,377 acre-feet from all SACWSD Alluvial Wells. However, the District has pumped approximately 2,000 acre-feet from all SACWSD Alluvial Wells in the current 2016 water year (November 1, 2015 through October 31, 2016) and the District anticipates that the maximum pumping volume achieved during the 2016 water year will exceed the maximum pumping volume achieved in 2014. If so, the District may seek to make absolute in this Application a volume of water in excess of 2,377 acre-feet based on pumping during the 2016 water year, without the need to amend this Application. 7. Claim to make a portion of the SACWSD 01CW258 Exchanges absolute: On September 18, 2012, the District completed a portion of its appropriation of the Lupton Bottom Exchange, as described in paragraph 4.3.1.2 above, by operating the exchange from the Lupton Bottom Ditch augmentation stations to the Depletion Reach at a maximum rate of 2.54 cfs. The District delivered water by exchange to augment well depletions associated with the SACWSD Alluvial Wells and other alluvial wells operated by the District, which in turn pumped water into the District’s municipal system for the District’s uses. Accordingly, the District seeks to make 2.54 cfs of the Lupton Bottom Exchange absolute. 8. Names and addresses of owners or reputed owners of the land upon which any new diversion or storage structure, or modification to any existing diversion or storage structure is or will be constructed or upon which water is or will be stored, including any modification to the existing storage pool: N/A. 8.1 Wattenberg Reservoir: City of Westminster, c/o Director of Public Works, 4800 West 92nd Avenue, Westminster, CO 80030. 8.2 Joint Denver Gravel Pit Lakes: The City and County of Denver, acting by and through its Board of Water Commissioners, 1600 West 12th Avenue, Denver, Colorado 80204. WHEREFORE, the District respectfully requests that the Court enter a decree making the subject Conditional Water Rights absolute, as described above, and/or finding that the District has proceeded with reasonable diligence toward the completion of the appropriation of the Subject Conditional Water Rights, and continuing in full force and effect for an additional diligence period the portions of the Subject Conditional Water Rights that remain conditional.

Rachel Zenzinger is fighting for our kids Rachel gets it — as a longtime public education advocate, Rachel won't let budget cuts hurt our kids. Rachel served in the Colorado Department of Higher Education's Opportunity Scholarship Initiative program. She knows that being able to afford higher education opens the doors to a lifetime of possibilities. That's why the Colorado Community College System named her Legislator of the Year. All people, of all backgrounds, deserve opportunity and economic security. The best way to get there? Great schools. That’s why Rachel is fighting for better investments from K-12 to higher education. Rachel will fight to get dollars into the classroom so that our kids can learn.
