As school measure fails, Kane vows to return next year

Douglas County School District’s $60 million mill levy override and $450 million bond questions are not fairing well as ballots continue to be counted.

As of 9:12 p.m. Nov. 8, measure 5A, for the $60 million mill levy override was failing narrowly with 51.25% of voters opposing it, while the bond, measure 5B, was failing by nearly 9 percentage points. So far, around 60% of voters have returned ballots.

The mill levy override would have gone toward making staff compensation more competitive, with the average teacher to see a 9% salary increase. The bond money would have been used to build three new elementary schools, on top of maintaining and improving other district buildings.

At the Invest in DCSD watch party on Nov. 8 in Highlands Ranch, Superintendent Erin Kane said the results were not what she was hoping for, but was optimistic about the support shown by voters.

"I'm actually feeling good because we were at 39% (approval rating with voters) in May and in this economy, we moved all the way to 48%," Kane said of the mill levy override that would have increased teacher pay.

Kane said the failing funding questions don't put the district in dire financial straights, but it does keep the district from being competitive on pay and meeting growth demands for at least the next year.

Kane said the district will need to be able to make staff compensation more competitive and build new schools, so she imagines bond and mill levy override questions will be on the ballot again next year.

"I'm going to do everything I can to take care of our staff, to take care of our people and get us through the next 12 months while we talk to voters," Kane said. "This is only the beginning."

Kane also thanked Christa Gilstrap, who co-founded Invest in DSCD, the political issue committee that supported the bond and mill levy override, and all of the parents, staff and individuals who volunteered to campaign for the funding questions.

Douglas County School Board member Mike Peterson said the school board will debrief about the election at the board's Nov. 30 retreat to consider next steps, particularly when it comes to the district's need for new schools in the growing neighborhoods of Sterling Ranch, Crystal Valley and the Canyons.

"We will look at coming back for another bond because we cannot go through what we went through the years of 2006 to 2018, going 12 years without passing a bond," Peterson said.

The last time voters approved a bond for Douglas County schools was in 2018.

Mike's Bikes to rename Colorado's Elevation Cycles locations

NOVATO, Calif. (BRAIN) — Mike's Bikes, which is Pon.Bike's North American retail wing, will give its name to the four Denver-area Elevation Cycles locations it bought in May.Ken Martin, the CEO of Mike's Bikes, said, "Our main competition these days is brand-owned retail, along with major online discounters, new D2C companies that seem to pop up daily, an...

NOVATO, Calif. (BRAIN) — Mike's Bikes, which is Pon.Bike's North American retail wing, will give its name to the four Denver-area Elevation Cycles locations it bought in May.

Ken Martin, the CEO of Mike's Bikes, said, "Our main competition these days is brand-owned retail, along with major online discounters, new D2C companies that seem to pop up daily, and even Amazon and eBay. Having all of our stores unified under one brand name is key to delivering a consistent, authentic experience to compete on all of these fronts.”

The stores will transition to the new name in the first quarter next year.

Mike's Bikes, founded in Marin County, California, in 1964, now operates 18 retail locations across Northern California and Colorado, plus assembly and distribution centers in each market and a fulfillment facility for its online operation. Pon.Bike, which owns Cervelo, Santa Cruz, Cannondale and other brands, acquired Mike's in August 2021.

"We can build on the incredible work that the Elevation team has done in the Denver market by bringing a broader product offering and more resources to support our riders. The alignment between Mike’s and our Colorado colleagues is incredible, and we’re excited to bring it all together under the Mike’s Bikes brand name," Martin said.

Whitney Tabaian, Elevation Cycles' regional sales and marketing manager, said, "The cycling market has gotten more and more crowded, and we’ve seen some customers move to shop online to avoid coming to a bike shop altogether. That’s why we've stayed true to our core values of helping all types of riders get the information they need in our stores, and helping to support the Denver cycling community so people have places to ride."

Elevation Cycles was founded in 2012 and was closely associated with Trek before the acquisition by Mike's. A former Trek employee and his partners founded Elevation with support from Trek. The chain began with the acquisition of a former Bicycle Pedal’r store in Highlands Ranch.

Prior to the acquisition by Mike's, the stores carried Trek, Pivot, Giant and Kona bikes, among others, but Trek stopped selling to the stores after the acquisition and has opened a company-owned store in Highlands Ranch, which also has an Elevation Cycles — now Mike's Bikes — location. Specialized also owns a store in Highlands Ranch.

Aerospace company starts big expansion with new Denver-area leases

A Colorado aerospace company hiring hundreds of people to work on establishing orbiting business parks and space planes to fly there is first expanding its presence on Earth, leasing new offices in Denver’s northwestern suburbs.

Sierra Space, a privately-owned company with a hub in Louisville, has added new office and manufacturing space in neighboring Broomfield, its two new leases there encompassing 180,000 square feet.

Driving it is the company’s rapid growth. Sierra Space aimed to hire 1,000 people this year

“We actually hit that mark by the middle of the third quarter and have nearly doubled the size of our company since the beginning of the year. Sierra Space now employs over 1,300 people in the Greater Denver area and our real estate footprint has expanded accordingly,” said Jeff Babione, chief operating officer of Sierra Space, in an email.

Sierra Space employs 2,000 people nationwide directly on its staff. The company is establishing locations in Florida and North Carolina as it grows in Colorado.

It is partnered with Blue Origin, billionaire Jeff Bezos’ aerospace manufacturing business, to build the Orbital Reef space stations, which are planned to start being launched and built by 2027 and include space for private-sector and publicly funded research and development.

The stations are also envisioned to host space tourists and manufacturing that is well-suited for the weightlessness of orbit.

The company’s Dream Chaser space planes, reusable spacecraft it has been developing in Louisville for more than a decade, are expected to start flying cargo to orbit on autonomous flights without crew as soon as next year.

Other aerospace companies in Colorado’s booming space industry have been making real estate moves. Rocket company United Launch Alliance consolidated some of its headquarters office space in Centennial this fall and began looking for new office space to add.

Blue Origin, based in Kent, Washington, opened its first Denver-metro area offices on Sept. 30 at 8744 Lucent Blvd. in Highlands Ranch.

Sierra Space recently started its expansion at the northwest end of the metro area.

Employees in business functions such as human resources, IT, legal and finance, are already working from offices in a building that was part of Oracle’s six-building campus in Broomfield’s Interlocken business park.

People moved into offices this fall that cover 59,000 square feet on the second floor of Building Six at 500 Eldorado Blvd. Sierra Space is renovating an area the same size on the third floor of the building for further expansion.

The company expects to have those offices occupied a year from now, it said.

Sierra Space also rented a manufacturing and warehouse space nearby, northeast across U.S. Highway 36 in Broomfield, where the company will produce solar array systems for use in space. The facility, at 800 Hoyt St., encompasses 69,674 square feet.

CEO Tom Vice, in an interview earlier this year about the company’s ambitious plans for orbit, spoke of solar production as a significant part of the business’s growth.

It fabricates solar arrays for its own use and reports that it has drawn a lot of interest in them from other space companies.

Sierra Space also renewed its lease for the 92,365-square-foot manufacturing hub and operations center in Louisville that’s been the company’s long-time home base and where it developed the Dream Chaser plane.

The Dream Chaser is a cargo vehicle that NASA has contracted to fly supplies to the International Space Station on at least six missions that are scheduled to start next year.

“Not one but two Dream Chaser spaceplanes are in production at our factory in Louisville,” Babione said, “and so we are dedicating that entire space to [those] operations.”

Sierra Space aims to have several Dream Chasers built and flying by the end of the decade, including a version capable of flying crews of astronauts.

Mac & cheese is great comfort food anytime of the year, but it's when the weather start getting "wintery" that Coloradans taste buds light up tot the idea, more. The state's getting another great place to go to get some.

Maybe it's that the idea of having some mac & cheese takes us back to our youths; maybe it's just because is so darn good. The noodles, the sauces, the meats you can add; and you can have tator tots.

This mac & cheese place even has mac & cheese tacos? How are we supposed to resist such fare? I'm betting that they don't have couches to curl up on; that would put them over the top when it comes to, "must have."

I ❤️ Mac & Cheese have dozens of locations across America, but just two (right now) in Colorado: one in Denver and one in Highlands Ranch. Hopefully, they'll be bringing one to Northern Colorado at some point, just not yet.

I get both hungry and sleepy when looking at the photos from this place. I should take care when I head down to visit one of their Colorado locations. Maybe I should get a driver.

According to QSR Magazine, the newest Colorado franchise will be located in Colorado Springs. Maybe after a day climbing the Manitou Incline, a stop in for some mac & cheese will be in order.

This CO Cafe Has Over 40 Mouthwatering Mac & Cheese Dishes

Located in Indian Hills, CO, Mac Nation Cafe has been serving up quality, creative interpretations of classic Mac & Cheese and configuring epic, not-so-classic Mac & Cheese combinations since April 2015.

This mouthwatering restaurant is nestled in a quaint little mountain town just over an hour south of Fort Collins, located at 5510 Parmalee Gulch Road in Indian Hills, CO.

The cafe's cozy, relaxed atmosphere will have you cheesing before you even get your mac; Mac Nation Cafe’s interior, designed by Kiki Frisbie, reflects the hip and rustic sensibilities of the surrounding area while also incorporating an earthy, hippie vibe.

I'll admit, this combo's not one I'd ever think about putting together - but if this photo says anything about the way the mac tastes, I'm ready to eat the whole dish.

Why should I visit a VSPC? VSPCs offer Douglas County residents the opportunity to vote in person, use an ADA-accessible voting machine or replace a ballot. After Oct. 31, you must visit a VSPC to register to vote or update your voter registration. Prior to that date you may visit GoVoteColorado.gov.

Vote Early. Near You. If you don’t need assistance, deliver your ballot for free using one of the 21 convenient ballot drop box locations countywide. Safe, secure ballot drop boxes are available 24/7 now through 7 p.m. on Election Day, Nov. 8, 2022.

Where can I find a VSPC? Staff at four VSPC locations are ready to assist you with your election needs from Oct. 24 through Election Day:

** Please note that the Lone Tree Motor Vehicle/Park Meadows Center is no longer a VSPC. Instead, visit Douglas County Parks and Trails in Highlands Ranch

When can I visit a VSPC? The locations listed above will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each weekday through Nov. 7, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day, Nov. 8.

When will additional VSPCs open? Eight additional locations throughout the county will be open beginning Nov. 4, and on Nov. 7 eight more VSPC’s will open, giving voters 20 locations to visit for election-day support.

**Please note that Douglas County high schools are no longer Election Day VSPCs. Please visit one of the 20 locations listed on DouglasVotes.com.

Know the ballot deadline. No matter how you deliver it, your ballot must be received by 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022 — an Election Day postmark does not count.
