Truck route takes an unexpected turn BY PAT SUNDERLAND Managing Editor

An unsolicited bid from a contractor interested in building Confluence Drive has the City of Delta looking in a new direction. Last week council members agreed to terminate the contract with SEMA Contruction and begin negotiations with Hamon Contractors Inc. of Denver. After winning voter approval for a bond, the city put the alternate truck route out to bid in March 2011. The project was awarded to the lowest qualified bidder, SEMA Construction, at a cost not to exceed $19,861,017. With design, right-of-way acquisition, and contingency fees, the cost exceeded the funds available for the major project, and the city began looking at design changes to bring the cost down. The most recent cost, submitted by SEMA in July, was $18,489,883, which is comparable to the $18,207,581 price submitted by Hamon. But Hamon’s price is not only slightly lower, the firm has convinced the city it can come up with additional cost savings. Public works director Jim Hatheway has already identified two items which he believes will cut another $532,000 from Hamon’s initial estimate. “We believe their cost is much closer to $17.4 million than $18.2 million,” he told council members Aug. 7.

Hamon has also expressed willingness to work closely with the city to identify additional design savings. SEMA, on the other hand, has reportedly not done well at identifying value-added elements which would bring the project within budget. Hatheway said some of the ideas SEMA came up with were unacceptable to the city; others were not actually SEMA’s ideas but came out of design changes which reduced the scope of the project. “That has been a major sticking point for us,” said Rob Pratt of Stantec, the firm which is designing the truck route. “They started out really good and then they got busy on the US 36 corridor and we were on the back burner from that point forward.” Hatheway said the truck route committee has studied Hamon’s proposal and believes the company can provide “a quality project at a cost within our current budget and available funding.” As a home rule community, the city does not have to put the project back out to bid. SEMA had apparently gotten wind of a new bidder and late last week sent an e-mail asking for a chance to continue to work with the city to prove they should be the “contractor of choice.” Company vice president Brett Ames said SEMA has gained “superior knowledge” of the project by working closely with the

Kissner allegedly confessed to murder BY PAT SUNDERLAND Managing Editor

Despite objections from the attorney representing Billy Kissner, the arrest affidavit outlining the basis of the charges against Kissner has been unsealed. The document had been kept under wraps since Kissner was arrested May 4. He is accused of second degree murder in the death of his wife, Raelynn, at their Cedaredge home in November 2010. R.L. Benjamin said given the small, close-knit community of Cedaredge, the details contained in the arrest affidavit could have an adverse impact on the defense’s ability to seat an unbiased jury. Benjamin, an associate of Harvey Steinberg, Kissner’s primary attorney, said he preferred to see those details aired in a preliminary hearing, where he would have the opportunity to rebut the accusations outlined in the arrest affidavit. Compiled by the investigating officer, the arrest affidavit contains the points that support the charges which have been filed in

court. That information has been vetted by one side only, Benjamin argued. Judge Sandra Miller agreed Delta County is small, but said much of the information in the arrest affidavit will be presented during the preliminary hearing anyway. She ordered the document unsealed. The preliminary hearing scheduled for Aug. 9 was postponed until Sept. 14. Raelynn Kissner was found face down in the hot tub at her home on Nov. 22, 2010. Charges were not filed until Kissner’s family members provided law enforcement with information that Kissner had allegedly confessed to the killing. In early May, they handed over several notes, reportedly in Kissner’s handwriting, including one which stated, “The night she died I pushed her and she was going to call 911. All I could think of was losing control. I went into a rage. (I had been having very violent thoughts) and threw her into the hot tub. I had no emotion. Rae had made me into something good and now KISSNER TO A3

city over the last 16 months. Ames said SEMA could do the project for $17,216,000, based on the bid form quantities provided by Stantec. But, he added, their July bid included pricing elements which they felt were missing from the drawings and/or bid items that were not included in the bid pricing form. They could drop the price, but those items will still be required to complete the project to design specifications. He explained, “Our commitment to the city was to always provide to you a project fully priced based on the work scope you desired with pricing incorporating all the costs to deliver the project. It was our intent this pricing would eliminate and/or minimize change orders in the future as we know how important it was for this project to TRUCK ROUTE TO A3

Second West Nile case confirmed The Delta County Department of Health and Human Services recently announced that a second human case of West Nile Virus was confirmed in a Delta County resident on Aug. 2. The resident is a female from the Delta area and is recovering from a case of uncomplicated fever. She experienced the onset of symptoms July 22. “West Nile Virus is a serious illness, and we want to ensure citizens understand the potential risk associated with infection,” said Delta County public health director Bonnie Koehler. “Late July through early September are when most human cases

of West Nile Virus have been reported in Colorado.” Health officials say most people bitten by a WNV infected mosquito show no symptoms of illness. However, some become sick three to 15 days after exposure. About one in five infected persons will have mild illness with fever, and about one in 150 people will become severely ill. Physicians are urged to test patients for the virus if they show signs of fever, meningitis or encephalitis, or sudden painless paralysis in the absence of stroke in the summer months.

OPINION

LETTERS Remembering Cherry Day Dear Editor: I would like to share some recollections of “old time” Cherry Days. First off, it wasn’t Cherry Days. It was Cherry Day. My first was in the mid ‘70s. It was hosted by a “Cherry Day Committee.” (I would not be surprised if Helen Smith was central.) There was the parade, similar to a modern Cherry Days parade, but a little smaller. There was the clown band. It took basically all the fancy cars in town to drive all six king and queen candidates down the parade route. What was very different was the happenings in the park. It was a day of family picnics, and everyone brought their own food. Well, almost all their own food. You could buy corn on the cob, lemonade and cherry pie. (My wife swears the cherry pie was free!) The carnival may have had a hamburger stand, and might have had a booth with dolls or hats, but they didn’t sell many. Maybe there was a barbecue stand. By today’s standards, there was astonishingly little commercial activity in the park. Apart from the picnics, there was a coal shoveling contest and a cherry seed spitting contest. I think there were some three-legged races and a wheelbarrow race. People dunked for apples. One year my wife won the cake walk. Among the few booths was one where for about a dollar you could drop the mayor off a dunking stool into a large tub of water. He was soaked. There was a little “jail” where a “sheriff” imprisoned locals caught without a Cherry Day button (until they paid up). There was some local music. At dark there was a little fireworks show (paid for by the Cherry Day buttons). The next day everyone

went back to work. It was simple, non commercial and largely participatory. I remember a local businessman and owner of the International Harvester building (where they worked on tractors), Ted Joslyn, of the Joslyn department store family (and therefore reputed to be one of the wealthiest citizen in the valley) walked around with a gunny sack, picking up trash. It was a small town taking the 4th of July off for a picnic in the park and some fireworks. All were welcome. Aside from the fireworks, there was not much for a spectator or shopper. The local fruit industry had never really been able to compete against marketing organizations like Washington state’s, and many of the local orchards had fallen from commercial viability. The opening of a large “modern” mine brought an influx of people, some bought up orchards as residences, and stopped growing fruit. Neglected orchards became truckloads of firewood. Then the mine caught fire and closed, the miners left. The traditional agricultural base wasn’t there any more. It was hard times. There was hardly a Cherry Day at all for a few years and the Cherry Day Committee nearly burned out. I think the local Waldorf school rallied and organized a day with more kid-oriented events like face painting and story telling and rope ladder climbing. Then as times improved, someone from Carbondale’s Mountain Fair came up with a plan to turn Cherry Day into something grand. Booths and crafts and food and music, all weekend long. He gave it a good try, but it was too different. All that commercialism. That may have been the catalyst that got the chamber of

commerce to step up and form a Cherry Days committee. And so little by little, through the various “committees” we come to today. My hat is off to the Cherry Days committee for their efforts. If they are interested in my opinion, it was better as the non-commercial Cherry Day. But it depends on what you want it to be. If you want it to be on the professional/commercial fair circuit, it has to be more than a day. And while I’d love to dunk the mayor for a dollar, if it were suddenly to be a Cherry Day of old, with such limited opportunities to spend money, I wonder if visitors would find enough to “do”?

There’s no need to change Crawford’s water rates Dear Editor: I urge all water users on the Town of Crawford water system to attend the Sept. 5 town meeting for the public hearing on a new ordinance and rate changes on our water use. We have an ordinance in place at this time in case of drought conditions. It has worked for the past 25 years! In the old days, the fire station in Crawford would sound the siren twice for everyone to turn off their water and once to turn the water back on. That was before any improvements to the water system. There is no need for a new ordinance or to raise the rates to get people to conserve water. Probably we need to educate people on how to water a landscape and to be more conscientious of their usage. The other question is how does one know how much water they are using before getting billed? It would be a shock for the water user to get a bill for $269.90 for using 50,000 gallons of water when they have no idea of the water used. So will the town provide education on reading the water meters so one knows how much water they have used? James M. Crook Retired mayor of Crawford for 25 years

Golf course supported on many levels Dear Editor: This letter is in response to the Aug. 8 DCI article concerning contributions benefiting the Cedaredge Golf Club. I have only good things to say about the “Cedaredge Golf Club Reserve/Restricted Account” (the “fund”) detailed in the article and applaud the efforts of those involved. Any support to the golf course is a good thing in my view. What I would like to add concerning the purchase of sprinkler heads is that the “fund” was not the exclusive contributor to the purchase.

The Deer Creek Men’s Golf Club also contributed a rather large sum of money toward that purchase. This is not the first time the men’s club has stepped up in support of the golf course, and will not be the last. As a matter of fact, by being a men’s (or ladies’) club member, you help support the golf course on a daily basis. All fees collected to join the men’s club and to play in weekly events and/or tournaments goes back into golf course operations. When big ticket items are needed, such as sprinkler

heads, the men’s club has on many occasions provided some level of financial support. As I stated above, the “Cedaredge Golf Club Reserve/Restricted Account” is a very good thing and I encourage support/donations. I also encourage support of the men’s (and ladies’) clubs which provide a fun, competitive, social aspect to golf while providing support to the Cedaredge Golf Club. Chuck Lionberger President Deer Creek Men’s Golf Club

Don’t read too much into letter Dear Editor: I am writing this letter in answer to Rick Stelter’s letter last week. Mr. Stelter wrote that in the 22 years that he has lived in Paonia, he has never met me and he never saw me at any sports events for Paonia High School. I find that very strange because I worked in all three Paonia schools as librarian, in the office, as secretary to the vice principal, and as cheerleading coach, field trip and band sponsor. I sold tickets at many of the sports events in Paonia. During that time I knew Mr. Stelter’s wife and all three of his sons, whom I might add are wonderful people. I attended many town meetings when Mr. Stelter was on the council and even worked on a committee. I have attended several functions at the Blue Sage and have made many wonderful new friends at these events. Mr. Stelter implied that I do not like new-

comers. That is far from the truth. I have many friends that are newcomers to Paonia and all of them are great people. I am not against change in Paonia. Change will happen here and everywhere in the world. I only ask for a little tolerance for the people who have worked to make Paonia the kind of place newcomers want to move to. I belong to local organizations, and that is why I wrote my first letter, because of the total disrespect for the American Legion and our military. As for my finger pointing and name calling, Mr. Stelter seems to have read a lot more in my letter than I wrote. I wrote that new people move to Paonia all the time and we, as a community, have welcomed all of them. I said “some” want to change everything about our town. Did I say everyone? No, I did not. Some is an unspecified number and can be as

little as one. So how come Mr. Stelter classified my some to mean all? As for my not wanting to get along with other people, then you really do not know me! Many people who grew up in Paonia and returned to visit over the 4th of July called me and wrote to me, telling me they did not wish to return next year because of the negative feelings they received at this year’s 4th of July celebration. This was very sad to me, as people have been returning to the Paonia 4th of July for many years. It is a tradition that has been taking place since I was born. I never said the mosquito control district does not work, I only said what so many in Paonia are staying at this time, that what they are doing or not doing is not working! I worry that people are going to get sick because of it. Verna Namy Paonia

Coal miners are not ‘anti’ anything Dear Editor: Lois Todd made several interesting points in her letter of “non” support, but I believe she missed the point of the coal miners’ “demonstration.” I had the opportunity to stop and chat with two of them. I did not get the impression that they are “anti” anything, but were trying to remind folks that the coal and cattle businesses are what built this area and whose tax dollars continue to financially support it. I believe they found it necessary to speak out in light of the recent vocal anti-fossil fuel development movements in the North Fork Valley. Not only do they feel these sentiments are a threat to their jobs, but mentioned having been the recipients of openly disrespectful remarks and actions because of what they do for a living. These are big boys who

can cope with snickers and name calling, but the trickle down effect on wives and children is disheartening and the fact that it happens at all is despicable. As to the progress

of having paved roads, multiple television channels and various other contraptions, does this make any of us better off in reality? Jakki Taylor Paonia

Coal, oil and gas built this nation Dear Editor: First of all, Rundle Construction would like to thank Oxbow, Gunnison Energy, Bear Ranch, Bowie Resources and West Elk Mine for the work that you have provided this valley so men and women can provide for their families. This country was built on the backs of these working men and women and the bloodshed of our soldiers to live in a free country. It’s sad that we teach that it’s optional to value the sacrifices made in wars and civilian lives so they could have options at all. What we need to realize as a nation is that the rich, the middle class, and the poor all need to work together as a team. When you start separating the three, you start to encourage failures because no one wants to be penalized for being successful. Without a team of tax providers, this country has no survival in building industry and roads to entrepreneurship. You cannot protest against successful entrepreneurship when it’s the reason we have the option to provide for our families. When you do this, it puts doubt in our younger generations about the meaning of success and sacrifices. Just because you

have a First Amendment right does not give you the power to abuse it. Lastly, our nation is not ready for solar or wind yet; this nation is built on energy. It takes fuel to generate horsepower, to move power plants, equipment, trucks and tractors for farming. We’re out of tax dollars that keep this nation going to provide jobs for families to eat, have clothes and a roof over their heads. Oil, gas and coal provide a lot of these jobs and opportunities. Until we can find an energy that will create jobs and fuel our country’s needs in terms of power for generations to come, to keep this economy going we have to rely on coal, oil and gas. This is so that we the people don’t give up what has been gained from the bloodshed of our soldiers and sacrifices of the working men and women to provide for this nation.

NFMAD article was ‘spot on’ Dear Editor: I just read “Mosquito district defends actions” written by North Fork Mosquito Abatement District board member Rosemary Bilchak Aug 1.

Intelligent input from “officials” will hopefully do some good in rectifying that situation. Geoffrey Levens, L.Ac. Paonia

Room 234 at the county courthouse. The county is accepting written comments now. The commissioners’ decision to revisit their original Aug. 29, 2011, approvals of the two hen house operations follows a July 5 district court finding that the approvals were insufficient and not property arrived at on four key points. The court remanded (sent back) the approvals to the BoCC for further consideration of the four points, but no time frame for reconsideration was stated by the court. Since the district court’s July 5 ruling, plaintiffs in a legal action against the BoCC’s original approval asked the court to issue a ceaseand-desist order against Western Slope Layers on Powell Mesa and order removal of the 15,000 laying hens on site. On Aug. 7, the court ruled that the county’s Specific Development regulations and other evidence of record in the matter “all lead to the necessary conclusion that this egg laying operation cannot continue to operate until county approval of the Special Development. Based on the July 5, 2012, order, that has not occurred. The Court declines to specifically instruct defendant Delta County to compel removal of the chickens or to compel a further public hearing. The court concludes that such measures are within the purview of the defendant Delta County.” The BoCC decision to reopen its Specific Devel-

opment hearing on Western Slope Layers and Rocky Mountain Layers is a direct response to the district court’s July 5 remand ordering reconsideration of the original approvals. According to an advisory from the county attorney’s office, the four points that will be considered in the reopened Specific Development hearing are the following ones: • Whether the operations were compatible with the neighborhood; • Whether the operations would have a negative impact on neighboring property values; • Whether the conditions imposed were sufficient to mitigate environmental concerns; • Whether the County staff was able to monitor and enforce the conditions of approval. Neighbors who from the beginning last year have opposed the hen house proposals are plaintiffs in the suit against the commissioners’ original Specific Development approval. Their continuing calls for environmental concern, and their documentation (including a YouTube video) of dust they say is being emitted from the Powell Mesa chicken house led the BoCC last week to call for air quality monitoring at the site. One of those neighborhood plaintiffs, veterinarian Dr. Susan Raymond, has called for an independent evaluation the Western Slope Layers facility; an assessment conducted by professionals indepen-

Welcome to the Movies

A community open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony are planned at Cedaredge Elementary School Thursday, Aug. 16. The historic building on Highway 65 has undergone extensive remodeling to create a beautiful, energy efficient facility for Cedaredge’s young students. A large addition to the building makes it possible for all the K-5 students to attend classes in the same building, rather than crossing Cedar Avenue to access the gym, cafeteria and other areas. The project was made possible with an $8.8 million grant from

the state’s BEST (Building Excellent Schools Today) program. The school district contributed $2.6 million to the total cost of $11.4 million. The building was designed by Reilly Johnson Architecture; the general contractor was Kissner G.C. On Thursday, tours of the new facility will be offered every 15 minutes from 4 to 7 p.m. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 5:30 p.m. in front of the main entrance. Students, parents and members of the community are invited to attend the ceremony and stay for refreshments.

FROM PAGE A1 stay within your budget and not have a project with what we would call budget creep once construction started.” “You guys need to be sure you’re comparing apples to apples,” city attorney Mike Schottelkotte cautioned, “and you need to make sure SEMA has been given the same information Hamon has.” The e-mail points the finger at Stantec for failing to provide design specifications in a timely manner. “As of this date we do not have final drawings from Stantec even though we have made several requests,” Ames wrote. “We would have a concern in receiving an ‘unsolicited proposal’ when the final drawings are not available.” “In my opinion, changing is what is best for the city. I’ll suck it up and take whatever blows they throw at me,” Stantec’s Pratt said. “In the big picture, if we can save a million dollars . . .” he added. Schottelkotte said negotiating a new contract should not be a

problem because the agreement with SEMA essentially expired April 1 when the city failed to give a notice to proceed in a timely manner. At that point, the contract could be terminated by either party. “The fact that you’re trying to negotiate for a better position with someone else doesn’t create any ethical problem, and it certainly doesn’t create a legally actionable problem,” Schottelkotte said. “Anything that brings you down in cost I think is in the public interest.” If the contract is terminated, the city must pay SEMA any expenses related to the value-engineering process. SEMA values that engineering at $128,000, but Hatheway said he does not

agree with that amount. The city will begin negotiations with Hamon immediately, with the intention of getting the project started in October. Schottelkotte continues to express reservations about proceeding with any phase of the project until the entire right-ofway has been secured and the relocation agreement with Union Pacific has been finalized. When the contract was initially awarded to SEMA, the construction schedule showed a project completion date of Dec. 1, 2012. Right-ofway acquisitions, negotiations with the Union Pacific Railroad, permit approvals and design revisions have all contributed to the delay in getting the project off the ground.

Public questions the ‘roadless rule’ BY HANK LOHMEYER Staff Writer

Efforts by the U.S. Forest Service to host public forums and open the recent roadless rule decision to public process haven’t dispelled perceptions of the rule as a top-down administrative decree that limits people’s use and enjoyment of public lands. Judging by comments and questions from about 30 people who attended a U.S. Forest Service information session on the Colorado roadless rule July 26 in Montrose, the public blames the rule for restricting its access to public lands; for limiting and eliminating economic activities in the forest; and, for the closure of long-used roads and trails. The 2001 Clinton roadless rule was discussed, championed, opposed, and litigated for a decade before its offshoot, the Colorado Roadless Rule, finally took effect on July 3 this year. More than 10 years after the Bill Clinton administration issued the first roadless rule for national forests, the public remains unclear and

confused about what a roadless rule is or does. Forest Service personnel from the GMUG and Rocky Mountain Region offices tried to dispel some of those mistaken ideas at the Montrose session and get factual information out. They used a variety of media during the two-hour-long presentation including computer projection, verbal presentation, questionand-answer, along with stacks of documentation, free DVDs, and rafts of colorful maps. But even after learning, for example, that it is local forest travel planning that closes roads and trails and not the roadless rule, people at the session came away no less critical of the rule. During the lawsuits that the 2001 Clinton rule spawned, individual states were given the opportunity to adopt state-specific changes to the rule. Only Colorado and Idaho have since adopted their own customized versions. Colorado’s is called the “Colorado Roadless Rule.” To-the-point assurances from forest managers about what the rule does

are helpful. For instance, the rule still allows ORV use and new trail building. But, the bureaucratic definitions that accompany those assurances don’t inspire confidence. For example, “Activities that are otherwise not prohibited under the alternatives other than tree cutting, sale, or removal; road construction and reconstruction; and use of LCZs are permissible in roadless areas, if not restricted by other law, regulation, or policies.” The public is left with an impression that before they do anything on the forest they’d better check first and make sure it’s okay, or else get an official permission and pay some kind of fee. The Colorado Roadless Rule, in effect on the GMUG and the state’s other national forests, allows five exceptions to new road building activities that the 2001 roadless rule did not allow: • Roads can be made to protect communities from wildland fire threat; • Roads are allowed “to accommodate existing permitted or allocated ski areas”;

Drug-Free Delta County to host workshop Aug. 25 Drug-Free Delta County will host a workshop on Saturday, Aug. 25, from 9 a.m. until noon to address skills and boundaries needed in working with, or living with, the substance-abusing individual. The workshop is designed for individuals who have friends or loved ones with substance abuse issues as well as Drug-Free Delta County volunteers who need these skills and understanding in working with clients. The workshop will be held at Bill Heddles Recreation Center, Room

B and will feature guest speaker Mariah EmondSchaaf, LPC, CAC II, a substance abuse counselor and founder of the newly opened Delta Health and Wellness Center. Working with substance-abusing individuals is often frustrating and hurtful, and while we may think we are helping them out, we often wonder “Are we really helping?” This workshop will address those issues and offer real life scenarios to help you better understand your role as a loved one, friend or supporter.

Fire burns in West Elk Wilderness Cooler weather early this week helped moderate fire behavior on the East Coal Creek Fire. The fire, located on national forest system lands in the West Elk Wilderness, is currently 141 acres. Fire managers were able to fly over the fire Monday afternoon to better assess the fire’s behavior and size. During the reconnaissance, it was determined that the East Coal Creek Fire had burned into what was the West Elk Fire (2008). The cooler weather, combined with the fire burning into an area that has already been impacted by fire, resulted in less fire activity throughout the day. Nonetheless, smoke was

rule “is the law of the land,” they said, adding that the Colorado rule affects 157,200 fewer acres than the original 2001 rule did.

visible along Highway 50 and in the Soap Creek drainage as the fire continued to burn in heavy forest litter. The fire was started by lightning on Friday, Aug. 10, and remained relatively small until warmer weather and strong winds caused the fire to grow on Sunday afternoon. The additional resources that arrived Monday began working on securing the fire perimeter in East Coal Creek. Smoke may continue to be visible in the area over the next several days and is expected to be variable depending on the weather conditions and fuel load within the fire’s perimeter.

• Roads are allowed for maintaining, protecting, and accessing water supply and storage facilities; • The so-termed LCZs (linear construction zones) are allowed for utility and fence construction. • The rule will preserve temporary road building in the North Fork Coal Mining area. There are 901,100 acres on the GMUG included in the Colorado Roadless Rule. Of those, 130,300 acres are special “upper tier” areas with more restrictions. Roadless areas aren’t as restrictive as wilderness areas and even allow limited tree cutting under special circumstances. Yet they place heavy restrictions on commercial uses important to communities, including timber harvesting. When one adds the 901,100 GMUG roadless rule acres to the 582,000 GMUG wilderness acres already in existence, the total of almost 1.5 million acres is functionally half of the GMUG’s 3.1 million total acres. That fact makes official assurances of continued public access to and use of the national forest lands sound shallow. Forest users who came away from the Montrose

Joe Nortrup joins RE/MAX Today Joe Nortrup has joined the sales team at RE/ MAX Today, bringing to the office seven years of experience in real estate. Nortrup was formerly with Wapiti Properties. A homebuilder for approximately 20 years in Delta and Montrose counties, Nortrup has also farmed and ranched for eight years. He is an accomplished horseman and has extensive experience training horses and teaching horsemanship. He hopes to use that experience in helping clients who want to acquire or build their dream horse set-up. “My first responsibility is to help my buyers

and sellers,” said Nortrup. “And my move to RE/MAX will be a significant benefit to my clients, because RE/MAX has the most powerful name brand in real estate. With nearly 90,000 sales associates in more than 80 countries, when I list a property here in Delta or Montrose counties it’s exposed to a huge audience.” Nortrup said another advantage offered by his new company is the focus on continuing education. “No other real estate organization has a higher percentage of associates with advanced, professional designations,” said Nortrup. “Keeping on top of the changes in protocol and procedure is extremely important. As an agent, I need to know the latest techniques so I can do the best for my clients.” RE/MAX Today is located at 1109 Main in Delta. Joe Nortrup may be reached at 209-6076 (cell), 874-1004 or toll free at 1-877-874-1004.

Drought conditions and low water flows throughout the state have Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminding anglers to monitor water temperature when they are out fishing. Several water-specific recommendations have already been released this summer; however aquatic biologists recognize that fish can be stressed due to temperatures in many different coldwater fishing locations. “Handling fish in waters that are 68 degrees and above can put undue stress on them,

causing mortalities and compromising the fishery as a whole,” said Ken Kehmeier, senior aquatic biologist for the northeast region. “We ask that anglers keep in mind the production opportunity of a fishery and not solely the fishing opportunity. Get out and fish, but bring along a thermometer and try to fish early in the day for the best opportunities.” For more information about fishing in places not affected by low flows, visit wildlife.state.co.us./ Fishing/Pages/Fishing. aspx.

Students’ tobacco use declines slowly According to a newly released CDC report on the 2011 National Youth Tobacco Survey, tobacco use among middle and high school students shows a downward trend from 2000 to 2011 — from 34.4 percent to 23.2 percent for high school students and 14.9 percent to 7.1 percent for middle school. “Overall we’re headed in the right direction, and that’s the good news,” said Celeste Schoenthaler, tobacco program manager at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. “But part of the reason we’re not seeing a faster decline in tobacco use

among youth here in Colorado is because kids can find a variety of tobacco products that are appealing and cheap. It’s not just cigarettes. Youth are using products like little cigars and smokeless tobacco products such as chew or snus.” In particular, the survey found high rates of cigar smoking and smokeless tobacco use among high school boys, with 15.7 percent smoking cigars and 12.9 percent using smokeless tobacco. Many tobacco products are flavored to make them more attractive to new users, even though flavored cigarettes now are prohibited. Tobacco com-

panies can put fruit and candy flavors in cigarettesized cigars and a variety of smokeless products. Using these products can lead to nicotine addiction and future smoking. According to the CDC, nearly 90 percent of people who use tobacco became addicted before the age of 18. Tobacco addiction can lead to a lifetime of serious health problems. The best way to prevent tobacco use is not to start.

No forests, no rivers BY GARY SHELLHORN Forest hydrologist

Chalmer & Marge Swain

Clinton Lampton

Delta County Independent

It all starts with a raindrop. Most of us have been taught the water cycle — raindrops to earth, runoff to the streams, streams to rivers, rivers to the ocean, evaporation back into the clouds and raindrops again. Here in the west, the public’s national forests are where much of the water cycle occurs. In the Gunnison River Basin, national forest lands comprise the headwaters for the entire basin. These headwaters are where precipitation in winter accumulates as snow pack and summer thunderstorms produce runoff that forms streams, creating the web of drainages we call the Gunnison River watershed. When Congress set aside the public lands comprising the national forests, which includes the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forests, there was an expressed intent to comply with the 1897 Organic Act that cited “securing favorable conditions of water flows” from these lands as a management goal. The snow pack on the national forests is important to the ecology of the forested landscapes that consist of streams, wetlands, riparian areas, grazing lands, and forested lands. The “raindrops” falling on the national forests sustain those ecological systems which in turn provide runoff and stream flow that feed rivers such as the Gunnison River. The Forest Service

calculates that about 2,900,000 acre-feet of stream flow comes from GMUG National Forest lands. According to State records, about 25% of that runoff is diverted from the streams for agricultural production in the Gunnison basin. About 1,200 of those points of diversions occur on the National Forest lands and convey the water to lower elevation private lands for agricultural use. The GMUG has more of these on-forest diversions than most other forests. Only a small percentage of the stream flow that originates on the national forest is diverted for drinking water, but it is the source of water for 32 domestic water systems supplying about 175,000 people who reside in the Gunnison basin. What is not consumed within the basin flows on to the Colorado River and countless other downstream users. Storing water on the national forests is another important aspect meeting the “favorable conditions of flow” mandate. On the GMUG there are over 450 permitted reservoirs storing water for agricultural and domestic uses. The high elevations of the national forest lands allow water users to use gravity powered ditches and pipelines, and cooler temperatures result in lower evaporation rates. In addition to these supply reservoirs, which also provide important recreation opportunities and fish habitats, there are thousands of constructed ponds that capture small volumes of water for livestock and wildlife. Sustaining watershed

function is a key part of the “multiple use” management prescription for the national forest. A properly functioning forest watershed will store snow, recharge groundwater, saturate wetlands, and result in high quality runoff. When watershed conditions are good, the results are high quality water, sustained stream flows, productive rangeland and healthy, diverse forest vegetation. Watershed conditions on the GMUG are good. Using the National Forest Service classification system, 80% of our 223 sub-watersheds rate as good and properly function while only 20% rate as fair and potentially functioning at risk. None are rated poor. The classification system considers 23 components that relate to watershed function, allowing Forest Service managers to systematically assess the existing watershed function and identify potential risks. From this information, GMUG managers work to carry out watershed

restoration or protection efforts that will improve conditions related to water quality, fish habitat, wetlands and riparian vegetation, erosion, and upland vegetative health and sustainability. The connection between watershed management and sustaining streams on our national forests is best characterized by this quote from Gifford Pinchot, the first chief of the Forest Service, who said, “the connection between the forests and the rivers is like that between father and son, no forests, no rivers.” This is part of a series of articles coordinated by the Water Center at Colorado Mesa University in cooperation with the Colorado and Gunnison Basin Roundtables to raise awareness about water needs, uses and policies in our region.

Childhood sports injuries: A guide for prevention More than 38 million children and adolescents participate in organized sports in the United States each year. Still more participate in informal recreational activities. Although sports participation provides numerous physical and social benefits, it also has a downside: the risk of sports-related injuries. Sports injuries are by far the most common cause of musculoskeletal injuries in children treated in emergency departments. They are also the single most common cause of injury-related primary care office visits. Common SportsRelated Injuries in Kids Although sports injuries can range from

scrapes and bruises to serious brain and spinal cord injuries, most fall somewhere between the two extremes. Here are some of the more common types of injuries. Sprains and Strains A sprain is an injury to a ligament, one of the bands of tough, fibrous tissue that connects two or more bones at a joint and prevents excessive movement of the joint. An ankle sprain is the most common athletic injury. A strain is an injury to either a muscle or a tendon. A muscle is a tissue composed of bundles of specialized cells that, when stimulated by nerve messages, contract and produce movement. A tendon is a tough,

fibrous cord of tissue that connects muscle to bone. Muscles in any part of the body can be injured. Growth Plate Injuries In some sports accidents and injuries, the growth plate may be injured. The growth plate is the area of developing tissues at the end of the long bones in growing children and adolescents. When growth is complete, sometime during adolescence, the growth plate is replaced by solid bone. The long bones in the body include: long bones of the hand and fingers (metacarpals and phalanges) both bones of the forearm (radius and ulna) the bone of the upper leg (femur) lower leg bones (tibia and fibula), and foot bones (metatarsals and phalanges). If any of these areas become injured, it’s important to seek professional help from an orthopaedic surgeon, a doctor who specializes in bone injuries. Repetitive Motion Injuries Painful injuries such as stress fractures (a hairline fracture of the bone that has been subjected to repeated stress) and tendinitis (inflammation of a tendon) can occur from overuse of muscles and tendons. Some of these injuries don’t always show up on x rays, but they do cause pain and discomfort. The injured area usually responds to rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE). Other treatments can include crutches, cast immobilization and physical therapy. Heat-Related Illnesses

Heat-related illnesses include: dehydration (deficit in body fluids) heat exhaustion (nausea, dizziness, weakness, headache, pale and moist skin, heavy perspiration, normal or low body temperature, weak pulse, dilated pupils, disorientation and fainting spells) heat stroke (headache, dizziness, confusion, and hot dry skin, possibly leading to vascular collapse, coma and death). Heat injuries are always dangerous and can be fatal. Heat-related injuries are a particular problem for children because children perspire less than adults and require a higher core body temperature to trigger sweating. Playing rigorous sports in the heat requires close monitoring of both body and weather conditions. Fortunately, heat-related illnesses can be prevented. Preventing and Treating Injuries Injuries can happen to any child who plays sports, but there are some things that can help prevent and treat injuries. The Emergency Department at Delta County Memorial Hospital provides these suggestions for the prevention of injuries. Prevention Enroll your child in organized sports through schools, community clubs and recreation areas that are properly maintained. Any organized team activity should demonstrate a commitment to injury prevention. Coaches should be trained in first aid and CPR, and should have a plan for responding to emergen-

Back to school with diabetes Notebooks, erasers, pencil sets and backpacks are on most kids’ back-toschool lists. But if your child has diabetes, you should add a few extra tasks to the list. At the top, put “good communication” with your child and with the school. ”Diabetes is a serious and lifelong condition, and it’s a growing problem among children and teens. About 186,000 Americans under age 20 have diabetes,” said Mary Grosvenor, registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator at Delta County Memorial Hospital. “Most have type 1 diabetes, which usually first appears during childhood. But in recent years a growing number of kids are being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, a disease that used to strike mostly adults over age 45. Excess weight and inactivity put children and teens at risk for type 2 diabetes.” When you have diabetes, you have too much glucose in your blood. Over time, this excess

glucose can damage both large and small blood vessels, leading to heart disease, stroke, nerve damage, blindness and kidney disease. That’s why people with diabetes must regularly check their blood glucose. They need to keep their level from dropping by using strategies like snacking. When their glucose is too high, insulin can help to bring it down. Essentially, they have to manage their blood glucose level 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This intensive management can be daunting to kids during school. They may wonder: What happens if I feel lightheaded, or need a snack in the middle of class? Will I be OK in gym class? When should I go to the nurse? These are all issues that you should discuss ahead of time with school staff and with your child. Work with your child’s health care team to develop a written diabetes management plan that

outlines your child’s specific medical needs. Make sure key staff members, like your child’s teacher, have a copy of the plan. Heading back to school with diabetes can be a challenge. But by eating regular meals, making healthy food choices, staying active and taking medications, kids with diabetes can do all the things their friends do, and then some. With planning and good communication, you can help your child have a healthy and happy school year. School Checklist for Diabetes • Tell the school principal that your child has diabetes. Set up a meeting with the school’s health team. • Develop a diabetes management plan with your child’s health care team. Give a signed copy of the plan to the school, and discuss how the plan will be put into action. • Give the school supplies for managing your child’s diabetes, including glucose-monitoring equip-

Affordable Care Act offers vaccination benefits The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has launched a new campaign to help educate Coloradans about vaccination benefits available through the Affordable Care Act. “The Affordable Care Act requires health insurers to provide full childhood and adult immunization coverage for their members,” said Dr. Rachel Herlihy, director of the department’s immunization section. “This is an important benefit of the new health care law, and one we believe can improve the health of all Coloradans.” The campaign website, http://priceless prevention.org/, helps people determine whether they are covered and provides three easy steps to determine if their private insurance plan cov-

ers the costs of their preventive care. Individuals covered by Medicare or Medicaid will continue to have their immunizations covered through those programs. People who do not have insurance can access low-cost vaccines through local health departments. For information on how to access immunization services in Colorado, contact the immunization section at (303) 692-2650. “We want people to take advantage of the Affordable Care Act’s vaccination provisions. Immunization is one of the best ways for Coloradans to stay healthy,” Herlihy said. “Recent outbreaks of whooping cough in Colorado and elsewhere have given all of us a fresh reminder of why we need to immunize.” Preventive service

provisions in the Affordable Care Act include the following: • Immunizations for whooping cough, measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR), influenza (the “flu”) and hepatitis, among others. • Blood pressure screening for adults 18 and older. • Women’s preventive services, such as mammograms. • Regular well-baby and well-child visits from birth through age 21. • Screenings for many types of cancer. • Tobacco screenings and cessation interventions. • Cholesterol screening for men 35 and older, and women 45 and older.

ment, snacks, insulin and other medications. • Inform school staff of any changes to your child’s health status or emergency contact information. • Help your child take control. Discuss the diabetes management plan with your child. Encourage healthy food choices and physical activity. • Make sure your child wears a medical alert ID and carries a fast-acting source of glucose, like juice or glucose pills, as prescribed by your physician. Planning ahead, and getting help from others, will help pave the way for a successful year. Source: National Institutes of Health

cies. Coaches should be well versed in the proper use of equipment, and should enforce rules on equipment use. Make sure your child has — and consistently uses — proper gear for a particular sport. This may reduce the chances of being injured. Make warmups and cool downs part of your child’s routine before and after sports participation. Warmup exercises, such as stretching and light jogging, can help minimize the chance of muscle strain or other soft tissue injury during sports. Warmup exercises make the body’s tissues warmer and more flexible. Cool down exercises loosen muscles that have tightened during exercise. Make sure your child has access to water or a sports drink while playing. Encourage him or her to drink frequently and stay properly hydrated. Remember to include sunscreen and a hat

(when possible) to reduce the chance of sunburn, which is a type of injury to the skin. Sun protection may also decrease the chances of malignant melanoma — a potentially deadly skin cancer — or other skin cancers that can occur later in life. Learn and follow safety rules and suggestions for your child’s particular sport. Treatment Treatment for sportsrelated injuries will vary by injury. But if your child suffers a soft tissue injury (such as a sprain or strain) or a bone injury, the best immediate treatment is easy to remember: RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) the injury. Get professional treatment if any injury is severe. A severe injury means having an obvious fracture or dislocation of a joint, prolonged swelling or prolonged or severe pain.

What you need to know about whooping cough Whooping cough (pertussis) is a very contagious disease found only in humans. People with pertussis usually spread the disease by coughing or sneezing while in close contact with others, who then breathe in the pertussis bacteria. Many infants who get pertussis are infected by older siblings, parents or caregivers who might not even know they have the disease. Laboratory confirmed whooping cough has been seen on the Front Range of Colorado, as reported in the August 2012 Ascel Bio Kids Wellnesscast™. Symptoms Symptoms of pertussis usually develop within seven to 10 days after exposure, but sometimes not for as long as six weeks. The disease usually starts with cold-like

symptoms and there may be a mild cough or fever. After one to two weeks, severe coughing can begin. Unlike the common cold, pertussis can become a series of coughing fits that continues for weeks. In infants, the cough can be minimal or not even there. Infants may have a symptom known as “apnea.” Apnea is a pause in the child’s breathing pattern. Pertussis is most dangerous for babies. More than half of infants younger than one year of age who get the disease must be hospitalized. Pertussis can cause violent and rapid coughing, over and over, until the air is gone from the lungs and you are forced to inhale with a loud “whooping” sound. This extreme coughing can

cause you to throw up and be very tired. The “whoop” is often not present and the infection is generally milder (less severe) in teens and adults who have been vaccinated. Early symptoms of pertussis can last for one to two weeks and usually include: runny nose; low-grade fever (generally minimal throughout the course of the disease); mild, occasional cough; or apnea – a pause in breathing (in infants). Because pertussis, in its early stages, appears to be nothing more than the common cold, it is often not suspected or diagnosed until more severe symptoms appear. Infected people are most contagious during this time, up to about two weeks after the cough begins. Antibiotics may shorten the amount of time someone is contagious. As the disease progresses, the traditional symptoms of pertussis appear and include:paroxysms (fits) of many rapid coughs followed by a highpitched “whoop”; vomiting; and exhaustion after coughing fits. The coughing fits can go on for up to 10 weeks or more. Although you are often exhausted after a coughing fit, you usually appear fairly well in-between. Coughing fits generally become more common and severe as the

illness continues, and can occur more often at night. Treatment Pertussis is generally treated with antibiotics and early treatment is very important. Treatment may make your infection less severe if it is started early, before coughing fits begin. Treatment can also help prevent spreading the disease to others. Treatment after three weeks of illness is unlikely to help because the bacteria are gone from your body, even though you usually still have symptoms. This is because the bacteria have already done damage to your body. There are several antibiotics available to treat pertussis. If you or your child is diagnosed with pertussis, your doctor will explain how to treat the infection. Recovery from pertussis can happen slowly. The cough becomes less severe and less common. However, coughing fits can return with other respira-

tory infections for many months after pertussis started. Prevention The best way to prevent pertussis among infants, children, teens and adults is to get vaccinated. Also, keep infants and other people at high risk for pertussis complications away from infected people. In the United States, the recommended pertussis vaccine for infants and children is called DTaP. This is a combination vaccine that protects against three diseases: diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis. For maximum protection against pertussis, children need five DTaP shots. The first three shots are given at two, four and six months of age. The fourth shot is given between 15 and 18 months of age, and a fifth shot is given before a child enters school, at four to six years of age. “Vaccine protection for pertussis, tetanus and diphtheria fades with

‘Freshman 15’ is a myth Hundreds of new students enter college each September. One longstanding assumption about college freshmen is their propensity to gain weight — on average 15 pounds over the course of their initial year in college. As it turns out, a new study pokes holes in that assumption and goes on to point out the truth about freshman weight gain. A study by research scientist Jay Zagorsky from Ohio State University’s Center for Human Resource Research debunks the myth of the “freshman 15,” stating that the average weight gain is between 2.4 pounds for women and 3.4 for men. In total, no more than 10 percent of all college freshmen who were examined in the study actually

gained 15 pounds. Some even lost weight. The results of this study were published in Social Science Quarterly. The study pointed to aging and becoming young adults as the culprit behind the weight gain, not necessarily the late-night pizza study sessions or cafeteria grub. The study also looked at same-aged people who were not in college, and most gained the same amount of weight during

time. Before 2005, the only booster available contained protection against tetanus and diphtheria (called Td), and was recommended for teens and adults every ten years,” said Jeanine Finnell RN, Delta County Memorial Hospital infection preventionist. “Today, there are boosters for pre-teens, teens and adults that contain protection against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap). Preteens going to the doctor for their regular checkup at age 11 or 12 years should get a dose of Tdap. Teens who did not get this vaccine at the 11- or 12year-old check-up should get vaccinated at their next visit. Adults who did not get Tdap as a pre-teen or teen should get one dose of Tdap instead of the Td booster.” “Women of child-bearing age should receive the Tdap booster shot — ideally before becoming pregnant. If not already vaccinated with Tdap, new mothers should get vaccinated before leaving the hospital with a newborn,” said Andrea Keller DO, obstetrician and hynecologist at Delta OB/GYN. “Those around the infant — parents, siblings, grandparents, other family members, and caregivers — are encouraged to get the appropriate vaccine (either DTaP or Tdap depending on age).” Pertussis vaccines are very effective in protecting against disease but no vaccine is 100 percent effective. If pertussis is circulating in the community, there is a chance that a fully vaccinated person, of any age, can catch this very contagious disease. If you have been vaccinated, the infection is usually less severe. If you or your child develops a cold that includes a severe cough or a cough that lasts for a long time, it may be pertussis. The best way to know is to contact your doctor.

the period of time they could have been college freshmen. While students may not gain 15 pounds their freshman year, college-age people do gain about 10 to 12 pounds over the fouryear school period. Again, this is attributed to natural body changes associated with moving from adolescence into adulthood. To limit weight gain, exercise, choose wisely in the Source: Centers for Disease cafeteria line, and limit Control alcohol consumption.

Hospital infection rate is well below national average The staff at Delta County Memorial Hospital takes infection prevention seriously. Performance is monitored for many initiatives aimed at reducing healthcare associated infections (HAI). What is a healthcareassociated infection? Healthcare-associated infections are defined as infections not present and without evidence at the time of admission to a healthcare setting. Most infections that become clinically evident after 48 hours of hospitalization are considered hospitalacquired. Infections that occur after a patient is discharged from the hospital can be considered healthcare-associated if the organisms were acquired during the hospital stay. In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that roughly 1.7 million healthcare-associated infections from all

types of microorganisms cause or contribute to 99,000 deaths each year. The most frequent type of infection in a hospital is urinary tract infection (36%), followed by surgical site infection (20%), bloodstream infection (BSI), and pneumonia (both 11%). Why do some people acquire Healthcare-associated infections? People in hospitals are usually already in a poor state of health, which limits their defense against bacteria — advanced age or premature birth along with a weakened immune system (due to drugs, illness, or irradiation) present a general risk, while other diseases can present specific risks — for instance, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (a lung disease) can increase chances of respiratory tract infection or pneumonia. Invasive devices, such as intubation (breathing) tubes, urinary catheters, surgical drains, and tracheostomy tubes all bypass the body’s natu-

ral lines of defense and provide an easy route for infection. Patients already colonised on admission are instantly put at greater risk when they undergo an invasive procedure. A patient’s treatment itself can leave them vulnerable to infection — a weakened immune system and antacid treatment undermine the body’s defenses, antibiotic therapy treats one kind of bacteria but may leave resistant organisms. According to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, the average overall infection rate for a rural hospital is 5%. During 2011, the overall infection reported at Delta County Memorial Hospital was 0.28% which is significantly lower. “We promote a culture of targeting zero health care associated infections,” said Jeanine Finnell RN, Delta County Memorial Hospital infection preventionist. “The hospital has been very pleased with the results of our infection prevention efforts.”

Bernice Musser to be honored at Delta museum The Delta County Historical Society is pleased to announce a public reception honoring longtime Delta County resident Bernice Musser on Saturday, Aug. 18, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Delta County Museum, 251 Meeker Street, in Delta. On the occasion of another Pioneer Recognition Day at the museum, guest of honor Bernice Musser is not only being recognized for her many years of service to the Delta community, but also on her 90th birthday. Bernie (as she likes to be called) has been a part of our cattle ranching history. While Bernie moved with her family to the canyon in 1930 at the age of 8, the Musser ranching business actually began in the canyon back in 1886. Then in 1988, after 102 years of operation by several generations of the Musser family, Bernie and her family sold the ranch and moved into Delta. Since then, Bernie has been a regular volun-

teer at the Delta County museum for 24 years, and has been a trustee of the museum almost as long. She has given numerous tours of Escalante Canyon and has generously donated her time and energy to promote

our local history and especially the history connected to the canyon. The public is invited to share memories and stories with Bernice Musser as she is honored for her contributions to the community. Call 874-8721 for more information.

Schools will offer healthier lunches, snacks BY PAT SUNDERLAND Managing Editor

Will you be allowed to bring cupcakes to school for your child’s birthday? Can chocolate chip cookie dough be sold for a school fundraiser? The answer will vary from school to school, says

Rhonda Vincent, food services director for Delta County Joint School District #50. Principals will have some degree of discretion in enforcing a new school wellness policy. “We expect them to exercise some common sense,” said superinten-

dent Caryn Gibson. What Vincent and Gibson both know is that the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act will change what’s being offered for lunch and snacks in the schools. In addition, the school wellness policy sets forth “goals” for the food

that’s available through vending machines, fundraisers and school parties. “To ensure that students and staff have access to healthy foods and beverages, it is the goal of the district that all foods offered should be healthy,” the policy states. “Healthy” means that not more than 35 percent of the total calories of the food item, excluding nuts and seeds, are from fat; that not more than 10 percent of the total calories of the food item, excluding reduced fat cheese, eggs and nut butter, are from saturated fat; and that not more than 35 percent of the total weight of the food item, excluding fruits or vegetables, is composed of sugar. Beverages selections are limited to bottled water, zero or low calorie beverages, 100 percent fruit juice, and fat free or low fat milk. Other drinks with no more than 99 calories for a 12-ounce serving may be offered to high school students. The guidelines apply to beverages sold on campus during the regular school day, and during before and after school activities such as band and drama. The state’s nutritional standards do not apply to the sale of beverages at school events where parents and other adults are a significant part of the audience. In other words, Coke and Pepsi will still be sold at high school football games, along with hot dogs, nachos and candy. Improving child nutrition is the focal point of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. For Vincent and the “lunchroom ladies” of Delta County, that means offering fresh fruit and vegetables as often as possible. At least one food item containing whole grains must be offered daily — but not to exceed the weekly maximum of 9 ounces for K-5 students. Transfats are prohibited. Processed foods contain too much sodium, so the corn dogs which were so popular last year are out. Chocolate chip cookies exceed the limit for saturated fat, so when cookies are offered (once a month) they’ll be oatmeal raisin. The only other desserts on the menu are cinnasticks, cinnamon bread and Jell-O. At one point in the implementation of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, servings of

starches such as potatoes, corn, lima beans and peas were severely limited. Those restrictions have eased up, Vincent said, and now the school cafeteria can offer unlimited starches, as long as the requirements for beans/ peas, and dark green and red/orange vegetables have been met. One of the goals of the act is to provide healthy choices for kids, requiring an “offer vs. serve” approach for cafeteria staff. Instead of ladeling a helping of broccoli onto a child’s tray, the staff will set out five pre-portioned components — meat, grains, vegetables, fruit, milk. The students have to take three, and can turn down two — a selection process that will likely slow down the serving line, especially among the younger children. Vincent said the 2012-13 school lunch menu contains items such as celery sticks and green pepper strips which, if they’re not chosen by students, can be chopped and used in salads or spaghetti sauce. Locally grown fruit is served when it’s available, and in the North Fork Valley, ground beef from Homestead Market is used for burgers, sloppy joes and chili. Financial support from the Western Colorado Food & Ag Council, Slo Foods, Paonia Rotary and Wells Fargo covers the price differential between the school district’s bid price and the cost of Homestead’s meats. Vincent said she would love to expand the program to Delta/Cedaredge schools if she can find businesses or organizations to help shoulder the expense. The menu takes advantages of commodity items such as pork roast, turkey breast, turkey ham, diced chicken, frozen blueberries and cheese with new items like pulled pork sandwiches and ham and beans. The school district is issued a credit for commodities based on the number of free/reduced

lunches served. Districtwide, 51 percent of elementary, middle and high school students receive free or reduced price lunches. In Delta, the percentage tops 60 percent. Students paying the full price for lunch will see a slight increase because of another provision in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act which requires school districts to charge enough to cover the cost of the meal. Vincent says the “equity in school pricing” provision came about because some school districts were using free and reduced reimbursements to subsidize their food service programs. For 2012, lunch prices are $2.40 for K-5, $2.60 for 6-8, $2.70 for 9-12, $3.25 for adults, and 40¢ for reduced lunches. Breakfasts will run $1.30 for PK-5, $1.50 for 6-12, $2 for adults and 30¢ reduced. Breakfast menus will not be revised until 20132014, so biscuits and gravy, the Friday morning favorite, is safe for now. “But everybody had better enjoy it, because I guarantee biscuits and gravy won’t be available next year,” Vincent said. While the White House considers schools to be on the “front line” of the national challenge to combat childhood obesity and improve children’s overall health, Vincent says she simply hopes for the best. “Will a healthy lunch compensate for the snacks they grab when they get home from school?” she wonders. By limiting the proteins and grains which can be served at lunch, she’s concerned the kids will be famished by the time they get home at the end of the day. And since all the kids are anxious to move through the lunch line and get outside for recess, there’s really no time to educate them about healthy food choices. “But we’re supposed to be keeping our kids healthy, and this is the way we’re going to do it,” Vincent said.

Hennesseys awarded $132,000 BY HANK LOHMEYER Staff Writer

An eight-person district court jury on Aug. 10 awarded damages to Steve and Bonnie Hennessey of Cedaredge in a civil suit resulting from an incident that took place at the 2008 AppleFest. During the community street festival that year, an off-road-type utility vehicle driven by William “Snub” Liles collided with Steve Hennessey. The Hennesseys later sued Liles claiming that the incident resulted in brain injury, debilitating symptoms, and economic and non-economic loss. The Hennesseys claimed damages amounting to $7 million for medical expenses and economic loss stemming from the brain injury. The claim also included damages for physical impairment to Steve Hennessey, and a claim for non-economic losses which together could have increased the total sought-after damages to $21 million, according to defense attorney Janet Spies. Liles admitted negligence and fault in the collision. He accepted liability for Steve Hennessey’s injuries. But Liles’s attorney argued that Steve Hennessey sustained no brain injury in the collision. She estimated the total amount of damages at $54,000 for less severe injuries Hennessey suffered to the torso. A two-week-long trial concluded with the jury awarding a total $99,000 to Steve Hennessey ($69,000 for economic damages and $30,000 for non-economic damages) and $33,000 to Bonnie Hennessey ($30,000 for economic damages and $3,000 for non-econom-

ic damages), according to the Delta Combined Court clerk’s office. Testimony in the long trial was provided by direct witnesses to the Oct. 5, 2008, collision incident, by local medical providers and by friends and members of the Hennessey family. The prosecution and defense offered divergent views on the Hennesseys’ financial condition at the time of the accident. Prosecution presented the picture of a successful career in real estate and ample income cut off by the accident and its injuries. The defense attorney’s version was one of business investments gone bad and high living expenses amid a real estate market that was collapsing. Expert witnesses charging up to $500 per hour for their court appearances testified. They included a practicing neurologist from Denver, and two psychoneurologists who tested Steve Hennessey’s brain functioning and interpreted results of the testing. Steve Hennessey appeared in court wearing dark glasses and noise cancelling headphones. He was led by a service dog and attended by a personal care aide. The lawsuit claimed that his debilitating symptoms, including frequent fainting spells, memory loss, and impaired judgment, were caused by a brain injury from the accident. Liles’s defense countered with testimony that no head injury took place in the collision; that no cause for Hennessey’s symptoms had been proven; and, that the symptoms are not consistent with the type of brain injury the lawsuit claims he suffered.

Delta fogs fairgrounds BY KATHY BROWNING Staff Writer

According to Ken Nordstrom, director of the Delta County Health Department, at the request of the fair board and county commissioner Olen Lund, the Delta County Fairgrounds were fogged by the Delta Mosquito Control District #1 last week. The fairgrounds were sprayed Wednesday night, Aug. 8. This proceeded the demolition derby held on Thursday night and the rodeo on Friday and Saturday. The entire fairgrounds

were fogged except around the animal pens, Nordstrom said. The fair board will pay the Delta Mosquito Control District #1 for the fogging. Kevin Parks, president of the North Fork Mosquito Abatement District, confirmed that he and fellow board member Mike Heck fogged the wooded area south and west of the fairgrounds and the wooded areas on the adjacent Hotchkiss fields on Saturday, Aug. 4. The local district refused to fog the remainder of the fairgrounds.

Liberty Festival offers unity in a freedom celebration BY KATHY BROWNING Staff Writer

How well do you know the U.S. Constitution? Perhaps you know it very well or perhaps you would be surprised by what it actually says and means. This Saturday at Paonia Town Park from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the entire family can come and celebrate our liberties, learn more about the U.S. Constitution and have fun in the park. The North Fork Liberty Festival will take place rain or shine. If it has to be moved indoors, it will be held in the park’s Ellen Hansen Smith Center. Why have a Liberty Festival? It was the idea of Bob Huspen, his wife and several other couples. “We want unity. There’s a lot of tension now in this area, but even before the most recent events we realize that Americans have a lot to be thankful for, grateful for and unify upon,” Bob Huspen said.

“That’s the purpose of the event. Bring us together to celebrate as well as talk about what gives us our freedoms and our liberty.” From 10 a.m. until noon, Shane Krauser, a constitutional law professor and a prosecuting attorney in Maricopa County, Ariz., will be leading discussions on liberty. “He’s very good at helping people understand the foundation of what gives us our liberties,” Huspen said. There will be a pre-event meet and greet and book signing with Krauser at 9 a.m. Krauser will explain the freedoms established by the constitution and the differences between a republic and a democracy. The Liberty Festival is a non-political, non-partisan event. Huspen and other locals have become familiar with a new movement called the Trans-Partisan Movement. “It’s people just coming LIBERTY FESTIVAL TO B2

Crawford council tours water system BY KATHY BROWNING Staff Writer

The Crawford Town Council and some citizens took an informative tour of the town’s domestic water system on July 31. Bruce Bair, public works director, led the tour which began at Wiley Spring. The town has it’s collection box at Wiley Spring inside a fenced and locked facility. Eighty percent of the water is sent to the Town of Crawford and 20 percent to the Crawford Mesa Water Association. The collection box was built around the turn of the 20th century when the

town was incorporated. Next stop was at the 250,000 gallon storage tank. The pipeline at the bottom of the hill runs between 200 and 300 psi. By the time the spring water makes its way to the chlorine house at Missouri Flats the psi ranges from 105110 psi. In town the psi is 145 to 150. It is then reduced to 60 psi to go to customers. The storage tank is now filling, and the town’s water dispenser has been turned back on. The chlorine house has a pump to increase the pressure so chlorine can be injected into the line, Bair said.

There’s no mud in the arena this drought-dried year, so let the smashing begin! And smash they did. What a great Demolition Derby! If you didn’t love the action last Thursday night in Hotchkiss, you’re a sourpuss! Get a life! Some will disagree, but the Demolition Derby during the Delta County Fair is the best thing that happens all year. Otherwise mild-mannered motorists turn into crash-lusting maniacs screaming and clapping wildly at every slam, crunch, ripped off bumper and naked wheel. Drivers who slammed into another driver’s door were chastised immediately by the crowd which knows the rules from previous derbies. Just a dozen drivers participated in this year’s event and there wasn’t a Powder Puff competition, but the vicarious needs of the crowd were met nevertheless. Fred Carson and Ray Katzdorn organized the Demolition Derby. There were three heats with four cars in each. The top two winners in each won $50 a piece. The B Main, a competition between the losers of the heats, was won by Ron Ellenberger in #76, with Ricky Colton in #44 taking second place. The A Main was a classic battle with the final minutes, a slam-fest between three cars — #31, #76 and #4 — still running and absolutely refusing to give up. Cole Johnson drove his #31 for a good long while, crashing into other cars. Finally he had crashed and was crashed into so many times his car’s trunk appeared to be right behind his driver’s seat. His tires were also a casualty, and he hopped like a bunny rabbit, albeit slowly, pursuing Joey Graff in #4 and Rod Hall in #76. Johnson’s engine caught fire! Hotchkiss Fire Department to the rescue! And he was back at

The victors emerged at the conclusion of the Delta County Fair’s Demolition Derby last Thursday night the proud owners of very dented and shorter cars to be awarded huge trophies and cash prizes. Rod Hall (right) in #76 walks with his trophy and is $1,000 richer after accepting the congratulations from fellow combatant Joey Graff (left). Graff took home $500 and his second prize trophy. it. When his car caught fire a second time though, it was all over for that derby. Johnson was third in the A Main, Joey Graff second and Rod Hall the grand prize winner. For their efforts, Graff won $500 and Hall $1,000. Johnson won the crowd’s admiration. They love spunk! The top drivers weren’t the only ones to take home cash prizes. Producers Co-op of Olathe and Montrose gave out five $100 bills and 10 $20 bills to lucky ticket holders. In the crow’s nest calling the action was John Cunningham assisted by Drake Welsh. Timekeepers were Karen Henderson, Samantha Henderson, Heatherlea Knott, McKenna Hartigan, Morgan Hartigan and Gloria Kendall. See you at next year’s Demolition Derby, about 359 days away and counting.

Cole Johnson’s car, #31, lost its rear end during the A Main. When his rear wheels stopped working he just hopped around the arena staying in the fight. When his engine caught fire the second time, the battle he waged with Joey Graff, #4, and Rod Hall, #76, came to an end. Johnson received lots of cheers and applause for his herculean efforts. Ron Ellenberger, #66 (top left), won the B Main and $100.

chlorine house has safety protections in case of a leak. The town council met the following night on Aug. 1. Paul Gray, executive director for Region 10, gave a brief talk asking the Town of Crawford to consider becoming a member again. Last year the town council decided against paying dues to the non-profit organization. He pointed out that for Fiscal Year 2011, for every $1 in dues, the six counties in Region 10 received back on average $40.50 in services. The dollars came from state and federal grants. “We leverage dollars from outside and bring them back to this region,” Gray said. There are 22 local governments who are members in Region 10. Dues are prorated by population. Crawford’s dues for 2013 will be $534 if they decide to re-join. The Region 10 Business Loan Fund loaned $535,000 in 2012. Two loans were given to businesses in Delta County. The Senior Program provides about $1 million in services. In the Crawford area Region 10 did 1,371 units of service provided to seniors over 60. A unit of service could be a meal or homemaker services. Of the 73 residents in the Crawford zip code, 26 have received Region 10 services. “Region 10 probably provides the best return on the public dollar of any dollar that our public entities spend,” Gray said. Region 10 will send the council more information for their budget considerations. Jackie Savage, town clerk, researched who owned the Crawford Clipper Ditch Company water used at the cemetery. A certificate of ownership and minutes from 1949 showed that the Town of Crawford owns the shares not CRAWFORD WATER TO B4

A century of good memories BY KATHY BROWNING Staff Writer

As a little girl, Laura Shaeffer watched her brave diminutive mother stand on top of a pile of beaver pelts to stop Native Americans from taking them. Laura’s father was away. Her mother’s actions earned the respect of the men who came back and bartered for the pelts. Laura Shaeffer Clock still has the beaded armadillo the braves brought for one exchange. That incident occurred in Wyoming before the Shaeffers moved to Colorado and the area known as Ragged Mountain above

Paonia. As a little girl, Laura never thought she would live to be 100 years old. But she has, and in a way that has garnered her the admiration of her family. The invitation to an open house honoring her at 100 quotes Proverbs 31:28, “Her children arise and call her blessed.” The open house will take place Sunday, Sept. 2, from 5-7 p.m. at the Paonia Friends Church at 409 Third Street. “No gifts, please, just your presence is requested” it says. Laura authored a history of the Upper North Fork Valley, includ-

ing Ragged Mountain, Anthracite and the Pilot Knob and Muddy areas providing story after story of its residents. She worked on “Cabin and a Clothesline” for 17 years taping interviews of people during the winter while her sons were in school. Then in the summer when it was timber time and the family was up in the hills, she wrote the manuscript in long hand. Laura’s parents gave her a Kodak box camera and she took many photographs for the book. She wrote the story of her life last year, but she can’t find the manuscript.

One hundred? Laura Shaeffer Clock doesn’t look a day over 70. “I don’t worry. I’ve had a good life,” Laura said recently. Hopefully it will be found soon. “I grew up on a ranch and I’m very thankful for that,” Laura said recently. Her father had a ranch in Hotchkiss, but when she was five years old they moved to Ragged Mountain in East Muddy country. After several years, the people settling the area decided they needed a post office. Her father had logs for a new home at their ranch. Upon learning that someone was going to take over 160-acres below the ranch, he decided to build a home on that property which would also become the post office for the mountain community. Laura was 13 years old when she moved there. Her mother was the postmaster for 29 years. “I’m really glad this

old house is still there,” Laura said following a recent visit at her childhood home. “A lot of the houses that age are no longer there.” Laura’s education began in Denver as a first grader. She lived with her Belknap grandparents in Delta while she attended second grade. She didn’t go to school for grades three and four, but was home taught by her parents. They built a schoolhouse in 1926 near her home on Ragged Mountain. The old schoolhouse is still there. Laura graduated from Paonia High School, which was on Fourth Street, and signed up to attend Western State College in Gunnison. Laura knew her future husband before they both attended high school together. The Shaeffers and the Clocks both had Ragged Mountain ranches. Earl Clock and Laura Shaeffer each won the Rockwell Cup upon their graduation in 1932. The couple married two years later on June 10, 1934, in an aspen grove near a ranch they later bought and sold. They spent their first summer in a tree house, 25 feet high. The tree is still there, but not the one-room tree house. They built the tree house themselves with the help of Grandpa Clock. Laura and Earl had two sons, Keith and Clinton. The couple lived in Seattle for three years.

Laura Shaeffer was a recipient of the Rockwell Cup her senior year at Paonia High School. The Rockwell Cup’s male recipient was Earl Clock, the man she would marry in 1934. Earl worked in the shipyards. He built cargo ships during World War II. Earl loved to fly planes, and kept a plane on their property in Paonia. The plane is owned by someone else today but still can be flown. Earl and Laura operated the Clock Laundromat for 37 years in downtown Paonia. Laura’s memories of growing up include lots of dances at her house and then later at the schoolhouse. The Somerset Orchestra would play, but if they weren’t available her mother would play piano, several others could play guitar and someone else would play a mouth harp. “We could manage without outside help,” Laura said. Laura, her sister Jeanette and best friend Maxine Goodrich Downing loved to help with cattle drives over McClure Pass to the Placita train station. All the neighbors brought their cattle together. “It was quite an event,” she said. Laura didn’t feel isolated on the ranch. They received mail twice a week on Mondays and Fridays. She observes that the Great Depression didn’t affect the ranchers and farmers in the area because they raised their own food. “We would butcher a beef and raised a big garden. We canned lots of vegetables,” Laura said. They would also buy other food in Paonia. For Laura the biggest change she has seen over her 100 years is going from horses and buggies to cars. “I lived through a period that was blessed by the Lord. It was a good period in our American history and I am thankful for that,” Laura said.

Pickin’ in the Park presents Liza’s Gogo Lab BY KATHY BROWNING Staff Writer

It’s gone by fast! The free concert series the first four Thursdays of August will have its third concert on Aug. 16. Pickin’ in the Park welcomes Liza’s Gogo Lab to the gazebo stage at Paonia Town Park this Thursday. Jaden Carlson will open the night of music at 6 p.m. Liza Oxnard gained initial fame in 1991 as the singer, lead guitarist and songwriter for Zuba. Liza’s Gogo Lab is her latest electronica project with Brian McRae on drums and triggers, Eric Moon on keys, accordion and samples, Kip Kuepper on bass synth and vocals, Danny Sears on trumpet, keys and vocals and Liza on guitar and psychedelic lead vocals.

The band “blends electronic trip hop, acid jazz, an occasional tango with a lounge esthetic, and of course, beats made for dancing. Liza’s seductive vocal stylings blend dreamlike as she signs irresistible Brazilian bossas, remixed jazz standards, and playful European lounge (in various languages . . . Truly sexy).” Liza says they are currently working on their first CD. Definitely go to www.pickinproductions. com to hear a sampling of her songs. Head on over to Paonia Town Park on Thursday. It’s a great outdoor venue.

Cabbage’s inspirational archetype: a mish mash of genres boiled into a stew of mixed blues, jazz, soul, southern rock, Appalachian and even classical vibes. Swamp Cabbage was formed in 2001 by veteran guitarist Walter Parks, who built an international career as the lead guitarist for Woodstock legend Richie Havens. Parks, who recently marked his debut as a solo artist with the release of his self-titled album earlier this year, formed the group along with bassist Jim DeVito and drummer Jagoda as a way to explore his southern musical influences. Swamp Cabbage uses guitar, bass and drum format sounds like a southern rock band but “thinks” like a jazz, blues or classical trio. Harmonically, their sound is more complex than the blues. Rhythmically it’s akin to New Orleans jazz. Lyrically, they offer a comedic travelogue through Park’s North Florida upbringing. Take a listen to their music at www.swamp cabbage.com. Come hear some great national music and support local art and entertainment! Proceeds from the sales on concessions and on the bar will benefit the production department for The Paradise’s fourth annual District 81428 Fashion and Design Show, Live Your Dream! Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at The Paradise Theatre Box Office and KVNF in Paonia. Find more information at www.paradiseofpaonia. com.

Orchard City’s farmers market deemed a success Town picnic, fireworks, set for Aug. 25 BY HANK LOHMEYER Staff Writer

The Orchard City Town Board heard a report on the July 28 Centennial Farmers’ Market and Crafts Event given by Judy Davies on Aug. 8. She reported that the event was seen by the participants as a success. “The Farmers Market and Crafts Event was a success for the first attempt in Orchard City,” she said. “From a survey taken of the vendors, 70 percent of the vendors responded, (there was) 71 percent positive feedback and 29 percent negative. The main complaint from the feedback was that of low sales due to the sparse customer turnout.” Davies said that was partly caused by a delay in getting out publicity for the event. “However,” her report con-

tinued, “we were informed that nearly the same number of people were milling around the tables at the town park as were witnessed at the farmers’ market in Delta that morning. Some of the positive feedback highly considered the location in Orchard City, the easy access off of 2100 Road, the abundant parking spaces, and that the market was held under the large, shaded pavilion.” Davies’ report went on to state, “Out of a potential 18 tables, there were 12 tables reserved at $5 each by 10 vendors. Two unpaid vendors were not ready with their produce or crafts by the event time, and two reserved parking spaces were refunded due to a misunderstanding of the flyer.” The report detailed a wide variety of merchandise that was available at the event including produce, expert woodcraft, handmade rugs and carry-all bags made from recycled household materials, and some unique dried gourds.

Cedaredge eyes grant for Main Street BY HANK LOHMEYER Staff Writer

The Cedaredge Town Board is expected on Thursday, Aug. 16, to okay a $275,000 grant application for a $1 million improvement project to the West Main Street business district. The grant application would have to be submitted by December. The Colorado Department of Local Affairs has restarted its Energy and Mineral Impact Assistance Program

after shutting it down for two years. Cedaredge wants to be among the first group of local government applicants to tap the money source, and that group of applicants is expected to be large. Consequently, the grant process is expected to be highly competitive. As explained to the town trustees during an Aug. 9 work session, the $275,000 would be part of a $1 million total project that will improve the appearance and pedestrian

usability of the three-blocklong stretch from Highway 65 to NW 3rd Street. The project’s conceptual plan shows numerous changes including tree plantings, street furniture and lighting, decorative paving, seat walls, and “traffic calming” features. The plan would create a landscaped pedestrian alley way between Starr’s Guitars and Main Street Gallery. Town administrator Katie Sickles told trustees the town’s

User-friendly changes in store for Orchard City park BY HANK LOHMEYER Staff Writer

Orchard City Town Park needs a few user friendly upgrades that were discussed by the town trustees on Aug. 8. The board decided to start a month-long trial of having the weekend on-call town staff person check for overfull trash containers and empty restroom tissue dispensers during regular rounds. There have been instances of both problems occurring over weekends. The trustee parks committee and town board will evaluate the program after the one-month trial period and decide whether to keep it in effect or hire some other part-time person to look after the chores. The town park was the topic of other business at the trustees’ meeting including the following discussions and action:

• The parks committee suggests some safety improvements at the pavilion which include removal of a section of the barrier cable that separates parking areas from the pavilion grounds. Trustee Gale Doudy sees the cables as a trip hazard and has wanted them removed since the pavilion was built. There were concerns about how to keep people from driving onto the grassy area. Suggestions included placing additional vertical posts or railroad ties, and the use of signage. Also discussed was the need for safety marking or otherwise mitigating a dropoff from the pavilion concrete pad onto the walking path. • Town resident Bette Davis addressed the trustees, telling of an experience she and her family had at the pavilion recently. As she

and her husband were readying to load gear and supplies following a 50-member family reunion there, they were approached by a young man, age about 14 or 15, Davis said. He asked if he could help them with their work. “Okay,” Davis said she told the young man, “but all I can pay you with is ice cream bars, and that was just fine with him,” she said. “I just want you trustees to know the kind of people who use the park,” she said, adding that her family was highly complimentary of the park facility and its condition. • The town board approved leasing its Field of Dreams playing fields for use by a Delta County School District 50 girls’ softball program this fall. The agreement calls for a $1,500 lease payment to the town.

bid for DOLA money would in part be based on the need for drainage improvements on Main Street, though the conceptual plan doesn’t show any contours, drain ways, or drainage structures that would conduct runoff flows away from Main Street. The effects of “a lot of little drainage basins all coming to Main Street,” Sickles told the trustees, “is the biggest issue Cedaredge has.” The Main Street improvements have been on the town’s priority list for about 10 years, Sickles said. Voters have approved a sales tax levy which could be used to pay off a bond issue to pay for work. The town board has contracted with former county commissioner Wayne Wolf to prepare and submit the grant application. Wolf told the trustees at their work session that Cedaredge’s location south of Gunnison Energy Corporation’s Spaulding Peak project and only a few miles from Oxbow’s Oak Mesa coal exploration project will give the application priority for energy impact funding. “Cedaredge is the hub of an energy development area,” Wolf said noting also the existence of coal seams along the southern flanks of Grand Mesa. The application will need local community involvement, Wolf said, including letters of support and actual com-

mitments. Suggested types of private participation included paying for street furniture or street lights by non-profit organizations. The county government may also contribute to the application, Wolf said. Many other communities in the state have put projects on hold because of the Energy Impact grant program shutdown two years ago, and the town’s request for Main Street project money is expected to be highly competitive. Trustees discussed whether the town should ask for more than the $275,000. Ken Simpson, speaking from his own experience, said that going for a 40 percent grant of the $1 million project was a possibility because grant funds, even if available, aren’t given if they aren’t asked for. Trustee Nancy Sturgill said, “Before we decide, we should find out how big a pot of (grant) money this is.” Others thought that since the grants are expected to be so competitive the town should stay with the $275,000 request — a 27/73-percent match that could increase the chances for full approval, trustees believe. In addition, voter approval of the sales tax and bond issue along with the surrounding energy exploration are expected to make the town’s application a compelling one for the DOLA grant makers to consider.

ment for its members. Trustee Ray Hanson noted that the Home Rule Charter Commission had opted to leave the matter of adopting a code of conduct up to the town board rather than include one in the charter document. Trustee Laurence Smith remarked that a kind of “wall” exists between the roles of a private citizen and elected trustee. The biggest difference, he said, is that the role of a trustee requires objective and non-critical behavior. • The trustees met in executive session twice during July. The first closed door meeting was to receive legal advice from the town attorney on a specific legal question. The second session came at a special meeting called prior to a work session on July 26. The purpose of that meeting was to discuss a “personnel matter based on Personnel Handbook ‘Work Place Violence’ complaint filed by an employee.” • Cedaredge Area Chamber of Commerce president Larry Murphy reported that the community message sign project

had moved into the “logistics phase” with receipt of an $11,000 donation from CACC. The funds came from the Chamber’s AppleFest program, Murphy had told the DCI. The donation doesn’t cover the entire amount needed to reach the project’s $20,000 goal. But there are enough pledges in hand that the sign could be ordered and infrastructure installed. Anyone can still donate to the project, Murphy said. Murphy is also the golf pro at Deer Creek Village. In that role he reported that business at the course is up this season. • Public works director Dave Smith reported that the intersection at NW 9th and NW Cedar will be paved as part of the current project. NW 9th has been prepared for paving. Smith also reported that he had met with engineers from Buckhorn Geotech on the Westador streets project working on design and bid specs.

Within 5 years of planting their leaves will turn yellow every year thereafter. • Norway maples do just fine in our area. • Do not fertilize trees and shrubs after mid-summer. This can lead to a flush of new, tender growth that will winter kill. • We do not recommend fertilizer spikes for trees. Use granular ammonium

Don’t go into an electrical storm...

• Seek shelter.

• Avoid trees or tall objects, high ground water, open spaces, metal objects such as tools, fences and umbrellas. • If you are in a boat, get to land.

Rachel, the daughter of Dave and Peggy Huerkamp, is a freshman at Cedaredge High School and will be playing softball this fall. She was excited to pose for a picture with Finch and her two Olympic medals — a gold from 2004 and a silver from 2008. The camp was held Aug. 4-5 in Grand Junction, and fueled plenty of excitement for the 2012 summer games which were underway in London, England. Softball was an Olympic sport from 1996 to 2008, but was removed from the 2012 and 2016 games. An effort is underway to return softball to the 2020 summer games.

sulfate. You only need nitrogen in most cases. • Do not prune trees after midsummer except for dead branches. Late pruning can result in the same problem as late fertilizer use. • When pruning, disinfect your pruning shears in alcohol (not the drinking kind) or spray with Lysol between cuts to prevent spreading disease. • Water trees further out in the second and subsequent years after planting. Always watering at the base of the tree does not encourage the larger root system needed to provide stability and drought tolerance. • Do not use soil sterilant herbicides for keeping weeds out of paths or driveways. These chemicals are very water soluble and can move considerable distances, killing plants outside your target area. Also the roots of your trees and shrubs could very likely be under these

treated areas. And lastly, these herbicides persist for a long time, some as long as 10-30 years. Read all pesticide labels first! • Mites, both spider mites and eriophyid mites, were found on pinyon, ponderosa and Austrian pines. Mites are very small and difficult to see. Eriophyid mites are cool season mites, most abundant in the spring and fall. Spider mites are warm weather mites and prefer hot, dry conditions. Eriophyid mites are controlled by carbaryl (Sevin). Spider mites are controlled by dicofol (Kelthane), abamectin (Avid), spiromesifen (Forbid), or bifenthrin (Talstar). Mites are difficult to control. Until next time, keep the faith. Fall is just around the corner. Cooler temperatures, less watering — I can hardly wait. Happy gardening!

Plants of the Western Slope A look at local flora with Evelyn Horn Bulrush/Tule Grayish bulrushes waver in the wind along the dry eastern shore of Harts Basin. Earlier in the season with plentiful water, I’ve watched geese, grebes, and blackbirds building nests in these seven-feet-tall bulrushes. It’s food for the muskrat, nesting for the secretive marsh wren, and shelter for all when the predator flies overhead. These plants can be

recognized from a distance by their dense growth: dark green, almost blackish in summer, dull fading gray in fall and dead-looking tan in winter. Up close they can be recognized by their small tan seed heads. Along this road, the bulrushes are right with the cattails and the two can easily be distinguished. Before our waters became polluted, the Bulrush provided human

food. The starchy root could be eaten raw, baked, dried and ground into a flour while the seeds could be simply consumed or ground as the basis of mush. The pollen could be pressed into cakes to bake. The leaves and stems could be woven into matting for many uses, including snug hunting blinds. I’ve referred to these plants as “tules” rather than bulrushes and now I’ve learned that the

Another deadline nears for pipeline companies BY HANK LOHMEYER Staff Writer

The Orchard City Town Board moved quickly through an agenda of routine business at its regular meeting on Aug. 8. The town clerk reported that notices had been sent to outside-of-town private pipeline companies that haven’t yet complied with new rules for domestic water service. The notices went to 19 of the some 40 pipeline companies the town provides treated water to. The companies will face an Aug. 31 water shut-

off from the town if they don’t respond and reach an accord with the town by Aug. 24 on compliance with the new rules. The original deadline set by the town for full implementation of the new rules was March 1, town clerk Melissa Oelke told the Delta County Independent. Orchard City began about a year ago working to rationalize its sprawling outside-of-town water service system. Under the new regimen, private pipeline companies on town master meters are required to incorporate,

provide certain documentation to the town about themselves including contact party information, and most important to install backflow prevention devices on their private lines. The backflow preventers are intended to keep any possible contamination from a private water company source from entering the town-wide system, water utility officials have explained. The private companies will also be required to have their backflow preventers checked for proper operation annually and give results to the town. Town clerk Oelke reported that she had received replies from several of the notices already. Most had indicated that their companies had completed necessary paperwork and were ready to submit it, or they were completing final paperwork to comply with the town’s requirements. In other business, the trustees dealt with the following matters: • An agreement with the U.S. Forest Service was signed spelling out mutual responsibilities for the town’s permitted use of the GMUG for its raw water collection system. The agreements are routine matter for forest permittees. • A special meeting of the entire town board was set for Aug. 22 to make and approve any final arrangements for the Aug. 25 town picnic and fireworks diplay.

term “tule” is derived from Nahuatl, a Native American language of the Uto-Aztec group. The botanical name is Scripus microcarpus (the classical Latin name for bulrush plus “small fruit or seed”). Our plant is in the worldwide sedge family, Cyperaceae (nothing to do with Cypress, the evergreen tree). Although sedges are cooler climate plants, they do occur in warmer sites. Cyperus papyrus was the ancient source of paper and the Incas used a giant species for rafts and matting. There are about 4,000 species and 120 or so occurring on the Western Slope with most in the sub-group or genus of Carex or Sedge which usually have triangular shaped stems. They occur in our high country as very dark green looking four-inchtall, grass-like plants in very wet sites. But our bulrush has rounded stems. It occurs at Harts Basin as six to eight feet tall bands of growth along the edges of the reservoir.

Fire Mountain, Paonia Reservoir have big impact BY TAMIE MECK Staff Writer

BOARD OF DELTA COUNTY COMMISSIONERS PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE Western Slope Layers and Rocky Mountain Layers Specific Development Applications The Board of Delta County Commissioners will convene a public hearing at 2:00 p.m on Tuesday, September 4, 2012 in Room #234 of the Delta County Courthouse, 501 Palmer Street, Delta, CO to hear additional evidence in the matter of the Western Slope Layers and Rocky Mountain Layers specific development applications. On July 5, 2012, the Delta County District Court issued a ruling finding four specific areas where the Court stated evidence was lacking in the record for the Commissioners’ conditional approval of the two poultry operations. The Court remanded the applications back to the Commissioners to make additional findings on the four specific areas and issue a new decision. These four areas are: (1) whether the operations were compatible with the neighborhood; (2) whether the operations would have a negative impact on neighboring property values; (3) whether the conditions imposed were sufficient to mitigate environmental concerns; and (4) whether the County staff was able to monitor and enforce the conditions of approval. The purpose of the public hearing is to take additional evidence to address these concerns. Written comments may be submitted to the Delta County Commissioners at 501 Palmer St., Suite 227, Delta CO 81416 or by email to commissioners@delt acounty.com, but should be limited to addressing the four areas of concern in the Court’s ruling. Comments received after the close of the public hearing will not be considered.

Jess Campbell’s ancestors were among the first to file for water rights in the North Fork Valley. In a state that recognizes water rights under a “first in time, first in right” tenet, those rights have become invaluable for Campbell, whose family has operated Campbell & Sons Ranch on the North Fork of the Gunnison since 1890. The Campbell ranch was one of the guided tours offered as part of the Aug. 6 celebration of the 50th anniversary of the completion of the Paonia Reservoir and expansion of the Fire Mountain Canal. The canal, which begins directly below the town of Somerset, provides 386 farms and 15,300 acres with supplemental irrigation water, which is stored during spring runoff in Paonia Reservoir. In an average year, the reservoir provides 90,000 acre feet of storage. The Campbells aren’t among the Fire Mountain Canal 488 shareholders, but its existence has a positive effect on their operation. “I’m not going to say we don’t get any benefits out of it, because when Fire Mountain’s running, we get a lot of return water to the river, which really helps,” said Campbell, who has experienced his share of dry years like this one and constantly seeks new ways to conserve water. Conservation efforts can pay off in years like this. The public lands where the Campbells graze cattle in the summer is now healthier than in the 1920s and ‘30s before the lessons of overgrazing were learned. They recently harvested a second cut of hay and

alfalfa from their roughly 500 acres, and could see a third cut on the alfalfa, despite this summer’s deep water shortages. Fire Mountain delivers supplemental water to roughly 15,300 acres of farmland. For the third time since water was first released from the reservoir in 1962, the canal was shut off early, on Aug. 4, when water dipped below the outlet tower located above the dam and spillway. As the canal closed, that increased the flow of the North Fork, from which the Campbells pull much of their water. Campbell & Sons is primarily a cow/calf operation — mostly Angus and some Hereford. They recently added Wagyu steers, an Asian breed known for the meat’s marbling qualities and flavor, for sale to highend markets. The ranch is one of six that supplies Homestead Meats with its popular, grass-fed beef and other meats and agricultural products. Like other area ranches, at one time the land grew mostly fruit trees, said Campbell. Today, people are diversifying by converting acreage to, among others, wine grapes and hops. Campbell’s grandchildren make up the seventh generation of family now living on the ranch, located between Hotchkiss and Paonia. The family filed on water rights from three ditches between 1890 and 1894. Their water rights are some of the senior-most in the valley. “What that means,”

Lund currently serves on the 27-member Inter-Basin Compact Committee. said Campbell, ” is when they start cutting water on priorities, we’re usually the last to get cut.” Approval of Paonia Project and numerous other dam projects were passed in large part due to Wayne Aspinall, a career politician and 24year House member who chaired the House Interior Committee for more than a decade beginning in 1959. Aspinall, who made the passage of water storage projects in western Colorado the center of his career, pushed those projects, which also includes the Glen Canyon, Flaming Gorge, Blue Mesa and Morrow Point dams, among others, to

NATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM

2012-2013 FOOD SERVICE POLICY Delta County School District 50J today announced its policy for determining eligibility of children who may receive free and reduced price meals served under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. Local school officials will use the following size and income criteria for determining eligibility.

Family FREE MEALS Size Yearly 1 $14,521 2 19,669 3 24,817 4 29,965 5 35,113 6 40,261 7 45,409 8 50,557 For each additional family member add: $ 5,148

Children from families whose income is at or below the levels shown are eligible for free or reduced price meals. Application forms are available at all schools during registration. Additional copies are available at the principal's office in each school. The information provided on the application is confidential and will be used only for the purpose of determining eligibility and verifying data. Applications from families receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly the Food Stamp Program) or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) need only to list the children's names, name of the person receiving the program benefits, respective case number and the signature of an adult household member. All other households that would qualify based upon income must show the names of all household members related or not (such as grandparents, other relatives or friends), the amount of gross income each person receives in a month, the source and frequency of pay, the signature of an adult household member and the last four digits of that adult’s social security number – or check the box if the adult does not have a social security number. The information on the application may be verified by the school or other program officials at any time during the school year. Foster children that are under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court are eligible for free meals. Any foster child in the household is eligible for free meals regardless of income. If a family has foster children living with them and wishes to apply for meals, they should complete the application using the instructions for households that have foster and non-foster children residing in the home. Under the provision of the Policy, Rhonda Vincent, Food Service Manager will review applications and determine eligibility. If a parent is dissatisfied with the decision, a request may be made to discuss it with the determining official. A formal appeal may be made either orally or in writing to Kurt Clay, Assistant Superintendent for a hearing to appeal the decision. The policy contains an outline of the hearing procedure. Applications may be submitted any time during the school year. If you are not eligible now but have a decrease in income, become unemployed, have an increase in family size, or become eligible for SNAP or FDPIR benefits, you may fill out an application at that time. Each school has a copy of the complete policy which may be reviewed by any interested party. Privacy Act Statement: This explains how we will use the information you give us. The Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act requires the information on this application. You do not have to give the information, but if you do not, we cannot approve your child for free or reduced price meals. You must include the last four digits of the social security number of the adult household member who signs the application. The last four digits of the social security number is not required when you apply on behalf of a foster child or you list a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program or Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) case number or other FDPIR identifier for your child or when you indicate that the adult household member signing the application does not have a social security number. We will use your information to determine if your child is eligible for free or reduced price meals, and for administration and enforcement of the lunch and breakfast programs. We MAY share your eligibility information with education, health, and nutrition programs to help them evaluate, fund, or determine benefits for their programs, auditors for program reviews, and law enforcement officials to help them look into violations of program rules.

completion, despite harsh opposition from environmentalists and others. Despite massive storage projects like Blue Mesa Reservoir, the state is suffering from a lack of water. A state Congressional resolution declares 2012 the “Year of Water” for Colorado. Last week’s celebration is the first of many related to the Colorado River Storage Project. Paonia Reservoir was the first project completed as part of that project. Celebration organizer Dixie Luke, a Hotchkiss native who was raised on Rogers Mesa and whose family history in the area dates back about 100 years, said the daylong celebration “was a big success.” The biggest disappointment was that the tours had room for 72, but only 32 attended. “But we got the message out about where our food comes from and how our water is used.” The day also included a Gunnison Basin Roundtable meeting at Hotchkiss Memorial Hall. That event drew a full house, as did an evening presentation of the history of the project, which included historical photos, record books, maps and more. The original dam proposal gained Congressional approval in 1939 during the Roosevelt administration. The cost of the project, which included a supplemental reservoir and an extension of the Fire Mountain Canal, cost $8.4 million. Of that cost, just over $2.3 million was incurred by Fire Mountain water users. That repayment, according to Luke, will be complete in 2040. About 200 people, from engineers and water commissioners to curious locals attended the talk. Kathy McKee of Hotchkiss shared historical family photos, which she discovered in her mother’s trunk long after the project was complete. She was one of many in the audience who were linked in one way or another to the planning and construction of the project. Luke said she learned of several more connections while planning the celebration. Water is deeply engrained in local history and community, said Luke, who plans on adding to the history of water in the North Fork area — a history that, for the early settlers, began out of the need to grow food. “It’s amazing that people had foresight to dig ditches, and that they are still delivering water more than 100 years later,” here in the North Fork Valley, said Robbie Baird-LeValley, Range Management Specialist for Tri County Extension, while touring the Campbell ranch. She marveled at how it all was planned, and the hard labor that went into construction, often using little more than hand tools and a carpenter’s level.

Sediment is eroding reservoir capacity BY TAMIE MECK Staff writer

Water experts knew when it first spilled in May of 1962 that Paonia Reservoir would ultimately fill with sediment. Its main water source is, after all, affectionately called “The Muddy.” True to its name, the turbid waters of Muddy Creek deposit several tons of sediment into the reservoir every year. Fifty years of sediment has reduced water storage capacity, and in a drought year such as this one, that capacity is desperately needed.

On Aug. 4, the water that flows from the dam, which supplies the 488 shareholders of Fire Mountain Canal with supplemental irrigation water, ceased to flow. This is only the third time in the reservoir’s 50-year history that storage water ran out before fall harvest, according to Trey Denison, project superintendent for the Fire Mountain Canal and Reservoir Company. The last time was in the drought year of 2002. In 1977 the reservoir never filled to capacity due to insufficient snow melt. Sediment replacing

The waters of Muddy Creek flow through sediment deposited over the last 50 years into Paonia Reservoir. The problem of sediment filling reservoirs and replacing water storage capacity is a global one. New scientific information is resulting in conservation efforts at the reservoir and around the world.

For the third time in its 50-year history, the water level in Paonia Reservoir dipped below the outlet tower, lower left, forcing the Fire Mountain Canal and Reservoir Company to shut off the canal to its 488 shareholders on Aug. 4.

storage capacity in reservoirs is a world-wide problem, said Denison, who attended the Bureau of Reclamation Reservoir Sustainability Workshop, held July 1012 in Lakewood. Numerous water companies and governmental agencies were represented, and engineers and professors from around the world were in attendance. Much has been learned regarding sediment mitigation since Paonia Reservoir first began filling in 1961. The last decade has seen great advances in scientific understanding the problem, The first real efforts to scour the silt-covered reservoir bottom began about 10 years ago. There has already been some measured success with draw-down and flushing of the reservoir. Mechanical removal is also being considered, but is not the

only answer, said Denison. Hydrology methods being tried in other reservoirs are likely to be used at the Paonia site. Those methods use water to draw sediment to the dam, then transfer it back into the river system during high water, which would naturally occur anyway, said Denison. With financial help from the Colorado River Conservancy District, the Fire Mountain Canal and Reservoir Company hired an engineer firm to help study the problem. The district has partnered with other agencies to create a sediment survey of the reservoir that will help guide the company in addressing the problem. “We’re at a critical point, where the sediment level has reached the outlet,” said Denison.

Everything below the outlet tower, located just upstream from the spillway, is now filled with sediment. If that outlet were to become plugged, it presents a huge safety issue, since the dam could no longer be used to control flood waters. If that is allowed to happen, the government would begin a decommission process of the dam. Not only would that cost water users, said Denison, the water storage capacity would be lost forever. “Reservoirs all over the world are filling up at quite a fast rate,” said Denison. With climate change affecting water patterns and droughts becoming more common and more severe in the already arid west, storage is being lost when it is needed the most. The storage capacity lost in Paonia Reservoir over the last 50 years could

have meant a full season of water for area users. A great deal of information came out of the July workshop, which focused on reservoir sustainability without losing storage capacity. Tom Alvey, president of the North Fork Conservancy District, opened the history presentation at the 50th anniversary celebration of the reservoir and expansion of the Fire Mountain Canal on Aug. 6. Water users, the conservancy district, governmental agencies and citizen groups are coming together, with conservation efforts for Colorado’s water storage units in mind, to create plans to solve sediment-related water storage problems. That may mean that, with some success, “the Paonia Project can continue providing water for the next 50 years,” said Alvey.

The CHSAA (chsaa.org) isn’t the place to go for results (except for state playoffs), but the site offers a range of information on each sport and activity sanctioned by the association, including rules and rule changes, contact information and/or directions to schools, and concussion information. The CHSAA also offers a wide range of data, including all of the 2011-12 Academic AllState teams, legal information, playoff brackets, state records and much, much more. The Colorado Preps Network (coloradopreps. com) also offers scoreboards, results, game and playoff predictions and much more from across the state. Colorado Preps covers only football, volleyball, wrestling, hockey, basketball, baseball, softball and soccer. Now in its 10th year, MaxPreps touts itself as “American’s source for

high school sports.” Rosters, schedules, scores, statistics, team standings and more for football, soccer, tennis and volleyball are reported by coaches at maxpreps.com. Winter and spring sports include basketball, wrestling, baseball and track and field. MaxPreps ranks teams and individual athletes by national, state and league standings and allows access to all past information that has been entered by coaches. Access to MaxPreps is free. MaxPreps also allows for play-by-play game coverage through the use of iPhone apps. To find your team, go to www.maxpreps.com and enter in the name of your school in the search field at the top right corner of the screen. A drop box will allow you to select the correct school. Once selected, another drop box appears. Select the sport and level (Varsity, JV, Freshman, etc.). Under “Team Links” you will find several categories. Some coaches select an athlete/player of the week, and others will take the time to complete a coach’s report. Information available varies from school to school, depending on the information the coaches elect to submit. For cross country and track and field, MileSplit is the place to go. Log into co.milesplit.com. From the blue menu bar, select “Calendar.” From

the lower gray menu bar, select “High School” and all meets will be listed. Under “cross country,” the Delta Invitational on Aug. 31 will be the first local meet you will see for the 2012 fall season. Click on the meet to see which schools plan to compete. Once a meet is completed and results entered, they can be accessed from this page. Select “Teams” from the blue tool bar and type in the name of your school. Made sure you have selected the proper sport, as this site tracks indoor and outdoor track and field, and follows college competition. Click on the appropriate team (middle school, high school, etc.) to see a roster, articles about and photos of your team. The public is welcome to submit photos. You can access individual profiles, track and field performances, and past results. There is a plethora of information available on this site, so you may want to spend a few minutes familiarizing yourself with it. I highly recommend book-marking your favorite team, rather than maneuvering your way through the site every time you visit. MileSplit has a team of photographers and writers who cover most meets. To access these articles, one must subscribe to MileSplit, which costs $36 annually. I highly recommend subscribing, both as a way to support the site and a way to find in-depth information on your team and other teams across the region and the state.

FROM THE PAST COMPILED FROM DELTA NEWSPAPERS By DELTA COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY 251 Meeker St., Delta • 874-8721 August 16, 1912 (From the Delta County Independent) Picture to yourself, if you please, a string of refrigerator cars thirty-five miles in length, loaded with Delta county fruit. Add to this twenty miles of sugar beet cars, then add a line of twenty miles of the other products, and you have a solid train of cars seventy-five miles in length, loaded with the shipping products of Delta county for this one year. The production record of Delta county is making people sit up and take notice. The great crops this year of fruit, sugar beets, potatoes, alfalfa and grains, have proven to the railroad that better service, more equipment and improved roadbed conditions are necessary. Hence, the broad-gauging of the Marshall pass division is being discussed, a new depot has been promised Delta, and many new locomotives, with hundreds of cars, have been ordered to handle the products of the Western Slope. In addition to this railroad improvement, there will doubtless be constructed new short lines over

Surface Creek and cut-off lines constructed whenever they will shorten the distance to markets our products must reach. *** Next Sunday Austin will again take a whirl at the Hotchkiss ball nine and try to again get a standing in the Sage Brush league, by trimming them so badly they will forget all about the last three games. A large number of Austin fans will accompany the team. *** The board of directors is having the new Hotchkiss school building completed this month in order that it may be in readiness for the coming term of school which commences next month. There will be one room upstairs ready for occupancy and a lavatory is being installed in the basement. *** Mrs. Ed Duke entertained about 80 young people in honor of Miss Lorena Wade and Bruce Duke on Tuesday evening , that being the eighteenth birthday of both. The lawn was prettily decorated with flowers and lights. There was a “mysterious fortune teller” and a number of games played. During the evening the Hotchkiss orchestra gave a number of selections which were greatly appreciated by all who heard them. Dainty refreshments were served on the lawn at a late hour after which the guests departed, all declaring Mrs. Duke an ideal hostess. *** J.W.D. Golm, the Paonia contractor, recently completed arrangements for the erection of a hospital for the Utah Fuel company at Somerset. The building will be of frame construction and will be located conveniently near the physician’s residence, to which it will be attached by a veranda. As soon as the site can be prepared, Mr. Golm will commence

the work. *** Midsummer travel is heavy this year, nearly all railroad trains being taxed for seating capacity. *** Morgan and Leonard Sweitzer and Misses Kathleen Nutter and Cecelia Verhofstedt made an automobile drive to Montrose and return Sunday. Several trivial accidents happened to the machine, but nothing serious. *** The bay team being driven by Mrs. T.K. Seaton last Saturday took a lively whirl around a couple of city blocks and ended the race after Mrs. Seaton and little Lee had been thrown out. Both were considerably bruised, it is said, but fortunately the injuries were not of a serious nature. *** Many entrymen are getting ready to prove up on their claims under the new three-year homestead law, who have been in possession for the required time. The inclination to prove up and get title to their claims as soon as possible, is making a rush of business for the different land offices and proves their claimants fully appreciate the value of their holdings and want title to the same just as soon as they can get it. It is better for a claimant to have his title, even though he finds it necessary to borrow the money with which to make proof, which is often done to further improvements, for a title from the government is the great primary object. As many claimants will want to complete their proofs before January 1913, it is well for them to get a start as early as possible. ***

Newly commissioned 2nd Lt. Phaelen French receives congratulations from President Barack Obama during Commencement at the U.S. Air Force Academy earlier this year.

BY ANNETTE BRAND Staff Writer

haelen French, recently graduated from the United States Air Force Academy and commissioned a 2nd Lt. in the United States Air Force, came home to be with family and friends for a few days this summer before reporting for flight training at Laughlin Air Force Base in Del Rio, Texas. Phaelen says she has wanted to be a pilot since she was very little. When she was seven years old, Air Force Academy class president Holly Adams came to Delta to sing at the Episcopal Church. Cadet Adams stayed with Phaelen’s family while she and other Air Force Academy cadets were in Delta. Sharing that time with Cadet Adams not only enhanced Phaelen’s interest in becoming a pilot, it gave her an interest in the Air Force Academy. She says, “It’s the people at the Academy who really make the experience. Cadets make the Air Force Academy what it is.” Lt. French chose Legal Studies as her major at the Academy. She credits that choice to Miss Deborah Houser, Delta High School, who taught Phaelen speech, debate and English. Miss Houser had her students debate in class and it was the work that she put forth in preparing her arguments for a debate that challenged Phaelen, the homework she enjoyed most. She was homeschooled prior to joining the student body at Delta High School (DHS). She was very involved in sports at DHS — cross country, track and field and basketball. She excelled in all the sports. “I learned a lot from them,” she said. “I really enjoy the physical experience of sports,” Phaelen said. She continued her sports interests at the Academy in

Phaelen French continued her love of sports at the Air Force Academy, competing in NCAA Division I level track and field events, including the heptathelon. Over two days, she competed in seven events.

track and field. She participated in the two-day heptathelon, seven events: hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200 meters dash, long jump, javelin and 800 meters dash. “That was one of my best experiences in track and field, in all events. I got to know so many people from those events and it is never boring,” Phaelen said. Her coach trained the athletes to avoid exhaustion by maintaining calm, maintaining an “even keel.” Phaelen is the daughter of Don and Beth French of Austin and the granddaughter of Harry and Peggy Gilbert of

Phaelen French

Grand Junction and the late Jan and Ray French of Kenville, N.J. As she was growing up in Delta, she was active in the 4-H program, riding horses and in the performing arts “stuff.” She trained with Regina Barr for performing arts and speaking. She also has a magnificent voice. She studied voice for many years with Mary Ann Rothburn in Cedaredge. She had two years of lessons with private teacher Jim Warner and sang in a High Desert Opera performance. She sang in many venues in the area, even as a child. She was a frequent soloist in her home church, Presbyterian Church of Delta, and delighted the congregation with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Pie Jesu, Pie Jesu” (Lord have mercy) during her visit home in late June. Phaelen said, “I sing as often as I can, whenever I get a chance, and especially when my Mom can come and accompany me.” She loves to go canoeing and kayaking with her dad, who is teaching her the “Eskimo roll” in the kayak. She likes visiting with neighbors, especially Linda Speedie and Mary Hinz. She likes to shoot and enjoyed the 4-H Hot Shots program. She also reads any chance she gets. Phaelen’s parents were always available and supportive, always eager to be involved in something she wanted to do. They called her attention to many things through the years they

thought would be of benefit to her, but they didn’t push, they just encouraged. They took the same approach about her going to the Air Force Academy and being a pilot — they didn’t push, they just encouraged. Her philosophy of how she lives her life comes, to a great extent, from what she observed while living her formative years with her parents. Her dad is an amateur wood craftsman. Don made a wooden kitchen table when he and Beth were first married which they still use. He says it’s the best $40 he ever spent. It’s not what her dad makes but how he makes it that has influenced Phaelen. “He takes the piece of wood,” she says, “looks at the wood, imagines how it will come out but never knows quite how it will turn out, but he enjoys creating something out of the piece of wood. That’s the central purpose — he enjoys the craftsmanship. He could go to the store and buy the article, but when he makes it, the piece is unique, each piece is different and the joy is in finding out how to piece it together. “That’s a good metaphor for what life is like,” Phaelen says. “Everyone’s life is like a piece of wood, a gift. It takes time and desire to let yourself be shaped and to shape your life. It takes work, that’s what’s beautiful about it. “For me that is where the joy in life is,” Phaelen con-

tinues, “in piecing together these gifts you’ve been given. You have to be in it the whole time. It takes effort and that is what makes it beautiful. It always has to have a purpose and the central purpose of the effort is itself sustaining.” Phaelen’s message to kids and older generations alike is to have fun, be adventurous, have courage, shout out to people. “In order to maintain your workability, you have to be authentic to yourself,” she says. “If you want something, go get it. It is only when you are being yourself that you find your authentic self.” Lt. French’s flight training is underway now at Laughlin Air Force Base. She has had a few flying lessons in the past, a few from Lynn French (no relation) in Crawford and with Mr. Morris at the Aero Club in Colorado Springs. She plans to make the Air Force her career and wants to be a pilot. She is excited and looking forward to her two years at Laughlin. She says how well she does at Laughlin, how far she goes in airframe, will determine which plane she will get on her next assignment. She says she will work to help the mission and will fill whatever role the Air Force needs. Phaelen was born in Delta, July 2, 1990, and delivered into this world by Dr. Sam Kevan. “Delta is my home,” she says. “I am glad to be from Delta and always will be no matter where I travel.”
