Death of Delta man labeled ‘suspicious’ Family identifies deceased as Chad Koch, 27 BY PAT SUNDERLAND Managing Editor

The death of a 27-yearold Delta man Monday evening is being described as “suspicious” by the Delta Police Department, but family members are more forthcoming. They say Chad Koch was run down by an individual or individuals driving a black Suburban, then beat to death. Skylar Ransier is Chad’s cousin. She said she received a call from her uncle, saying something “bad” had happened to Chad. She immediately turned on the police scanner app on her smart phone. Between monitoring police activity and talking with family members, she believes she’s pieced together most of the story. Chad, she says, called the police for help Monday evening, saying someone was after him and intended to kill him. He was on his bike

riding toward the safety of a relative’s house when he was struck down near the stoplight at H-38 Road and Highway 50. At the scene Tuesday morning, she pointed out tire marks on the concrete which she believes identify the point of impact. After being hit by the Suburban, she says, Koch apparently dragged himself through the dirt in an unsuccessful attempt to escape his attacker. “You can see the marks on the ground,” she said. She was told the black Suburban was found abandoned five miles north of Delta, she added. DPD Chief Robert Thomas discounted that story, as well as rumors that shots were fired. He said an autopsy was being conducted Tuesday afternoon which would provide some answers. Investigators are still gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses, he added. According to the initial press release from the Delta Police Department, officers were called to the scene at 8:12 p.m. Monday.

Upon arrival officers found an adult male laying on the ground on private property. The adult male was deceased; the cause of death is unknown at this time. They declined to name the decedent pending notification of family. There is no risk to the community, the press release emphasized. Multiple agencies assisted in the initial investigation at the scene including the Delta County Ambulance District, Delta Fire Department, Delta County Coroner’s Office, Delta County Sheriff ’s Office, and the Colorado Department of Transportation. “We just want justice for Chad and for the children he left behind,” said Rhonda Stevens, another cousin of Chad’s. When asked about rumors that drugs were involved in the incident, Stevens asked, “If it was drug related, why would he call the cops for help?” Anyone with information concerning this incident is encouraged to contact the Delta Police Department at 874-7676.

Passing of seasons The glorious colors of fall are quickly passing in the high country, although the remants of the golds, reds and oranges can still be enjoyed. Fortunately, the color season continues at lower elevations, with the cottonwoods along streams and the Gunnison River beginning to display their golden fall cloak.

Family is determined to fight OSHA BY HANK LOHMEYER Staff Writer

The Esplins of Delta have put almost 40 years into running and building a family business at Delta Elevator. Now, an unannounced visit from a federal inspector has resulted in thousands of dollars in expense, fines and threatened fines for a long-

time Delta business. Delta Elevator has been in operation since the 1920s, explained Bob Esplin who owns the business with his son, Bobby. But the future of the enterprise could be in doubt now. That is because the Esplins are refusing to knuckle under to what they see as unfair, unreasonable

and intimidating tactics being used against them by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). When the OSHA inspector arrived unannounced at Delta Elevator in June, Bob Esplin at first objected. The business is run by the two owners and one hired hand.

DCMH recognized for ‘model’ trauma program BY PAT SUNDERLAND Managing Editor

Delta County Memorial Hospital’s trauma program received high marks during a recent review by the Colorado Department of Health and Environment. Margaret Mohan RN, one of the reviewers with the Colorado State Trauma Program, said at the trauma designation review committee in Denver, “Delta County Memorial Hospital is the model Level IV Trauma program in the State of Colorado and other Level IV hospitals should look to Delta as an example.” The hospital’s trauma program centers around the emer-

gency room, but also involves surgery, med-surg, physical therapy, the ICU, radiology and labs. “It’s really a team effort,” said acting hospital administrator Jason Cleckler. CDPHE uses ratings from I-IV to designate trauma facilities across the state, Level I being the highest. The state has three “do-it-all” facilities, all located in the Denver metro area. Level V is suitable for a rural clinic that sees urgent care, but typically doesn’t have an inpatient setting. Delta County Memorial Hospital is a Level IV facility, a designation that was renewed for the next three

years. “The review that took place at the end of August was an intensive look at the entire system, to make sure our quality of care and procedures are up to date,” Cleckler explained. The review team commended the hospital for its dedication to the program, the quality of the medical equipment at the facility and the strong support from the hospital board of directors and administrative team. Cleckler said Misty Sakala, trauma coordinator, deserves the credit for taking the program to the next level, and TRAUMA PROGRAM TO A3

It doesn’t have the three employees required for OSHA oversight. “He said the rules have been changed,” Esplin said. Bobby adds, “We asked to see the new rules and they have never shown us a copy.” It was then, Esplin explained to the DCI, the inspector threatened that if he was barred from entry that day he would return with a search warrant and other OSHA inspectors for a tour of the elevator “that will be much harder on you.” Esplin has since had second thoughts about his decision to let the inspector tour the elevator with a video camera in hand that day. “He said they were going to inspect every feed mill in Colorado,” Esplin said. The father and son didn’t hear anything more for about a month until one day the inspector arrived with a book of notes on his tour. Bobby did a walk-though with the inspector who pointed out where corrective action to improve safety could be taken. Bob states that the elevator hasn’t had more than a scraped knuckle injury in 25 years. During a tour of the elevator with the DCI, Esplin pointed out numerous places where safety fea-

Ballot initiative pamphlets available There are three ballot initiatives on the November 2012 ballot. Educational pamphlets are provided by The League of Women Voters at no cost. Ballot issues are explained and the pros and cons, as provided by the organizations supporting or opposing the initiatives, are included for each ballot issue. In addition, there is information on Colorado voting requirements, the election calendar, and much more. The ballot issues are also available in audio format at www.lwvco.org.

Pamphlets are available at the Delta County Clerk’s office, the Delta County Annex in Hotchkiss, all Delta County libraries, all town offices, Delta County Memorial Hospital, and Republican and Democratic headquarters. Please call Peggy Baxter at 856-6225 if you would like to make some copies available at your place of business. Be sure to pick up your copy of the ballot issues you will be voting on in November.

tures have been in place for many years before the OSHA inspection. Esplin also admits that some of the OSHA suggestions were useful. He adds that the inspector’s suggestions were all that were necessary for the business to comply with recommendations. In fact, after the inspector’s second visit, Bobby went right to work on the recommendations, even though the Esplins thought some were unnecessary. They spent about $5,000 on the corrective measures, they said. That’s not all. Bob and Bobby and their wives toiled for hours completing paperwork and creating documentation on company safety procedures for their one employee. It was only then that OSHA let the big hammer fall on Delta Elevator. In late August Delta Elevator received an “informal settlement agreement” from the Denver OSHA office. The agreement proposed the Esplins pay an additional $7,000 in penalties for the safety improvements they had already made. The amount of the penalties could be doubled. DELTA ELEVATOR TO A3

OPINION

LETTERS Do your homework Dear Editor: The three letters to the editor in the Sept. 26 DCI issue pretty much summed up which way our country is going and I thank them for voicing their opinion. $16 trillion in debt, over 8% unemployment, Obamacare, closed coal-power plant, regulation squeezing the life out of small businesses and the alienation of Israel, our strongest Middle East ally to name a few. It is hard for me to believe that people still think Obama is doing a good job. I truly feel 50% of this country is uniformed; they must be if they get their info from TV shows, like the View or Letterman. It is sad.

As someone from the Chicagoland area I am very familiar with the crooked politics that generates from Cook County. Believe me, Obama is a perfect fit. Government rules, not the people. Wake up citizens! Our politicians are employed by us. If we have someone working for us that doesn’t do a good job, they are fired, or nicer term, let go. Obama has done a terrible job. No matter what party you are affiliated with you have to see what is happening to OUR country. You want socialism, and then go live somewhere else where your taxes will be 80% of your salary. That is the route

Obama is taking our country. We need an experienced person who will correct the mistakes from the last 3.5 years and beyond and not create more. Romney has the experience and brought with him an economist, Ryan. A successful business person and an economist. Their philosophy is to empower people. They are a much better team than Obama and Biden, who spend and enable. Please do you homework — are you really better off than you were 3.5 years ago? Look at the stats, I doubt it. Mary Martindale Crawford

Obama versus Romney Dear Editor: This is the most emotional and irrational presidential campaign I have ever witnessed. By nature I am a Libertarian; however, I have to choose between a Democrat and Republican, or I will be throwing my vote away. Many of you may be in the same position. Here are my thoughts on who to vote for. Simply put, if you want more of the same, vote for Obama. If you want things to change, vote for Romney. Based on personal observations, hundreds of hours of reading books, articles, blogs, etc. these are the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate. President Obama is first of all an over-achiever. His credentials alone would have never gotten him the job. His lack of experience in leadership, finance, economics, business, budgeting, foreign affairs and history have hurt this country immeasurably. His presidency has been one of trial and error, mismanagement and poor communications. He has tried to hide these weaknesses by being ever-present in our lives and communicating his vision of how he would like things to go. He seems to have no clue as to how to get any of these things done. He has accomplished very few of his goals. Good presidents work every bill thru Congress by working with the opposition. This has not been done. As a result we have a divided country. This president’s primary strength is his speaking ability and his ability to make people like him in spite of the job he has done. He has been a non-stop campaigner for his “vision of how things ought to be”

but has never really filled in the details. Americans really don’t know yet who he is. His birth, upbringing, friends and mentors are the subject of much frustration and debate. The most amazing thing about all of that is that he has managed to achieve what he has. Extreme liberal, socialist, anti-colonial, radical, all these have been used to describe him. He says he is for the “common man,” the oppressed, those unable to help themselves. Is that enough? I will let you be the judge. Mitt Romney, on the other hand, is quite the opposite. His credentials are much more mainstream, visible and evident in nearly everything he does. His birth, family, upbringing and associates are there for all to see or inquire about. What you see is what you get. He has a history of leadership, management, finance, public service and hard work. His main fault is communicating his vision of the future. He has hard goals of reducing the deficit. He also wants to reduce the overall size of government and its interference in our lives. Looking at his record as governor of Massachusetts he certainly has had some success and some failure in all of those. He also has a record of getting things done and working with the opposition. His opponents say he is greedy, uncaring, and doesn’t understand the “common man.” I will let you be the judge of that. The realities of being president are much different than their campaign goals and speeches. Simply put the government almost never shrinks, deficits almost never go away, and a

president’s success or failure depends on a lot of things that he cannot control. Is the “common man” any better off under either a Democrat or Republican? Sometimes yes, and sometimes no. Do entitlements get cut or eliminated? No, they don’t. What’s different about this election? We are on the verge of some very serious financial challenges that can no longer be ignored. The consequences will be enormous if we don’t get our finances under control. We also face enormous security threats from underdeveloped and unstable countries that don’t share our values and goals. I can’t help but think that this next president will be challenged to the hilt to get things done. I hope you all will make the right choice. Jim Timmerwilke Cedaredge

Letter writer’s claims questioned Dear Editor: In Marc Kanter’s letter of Sept. 12, he stated that local billionaire Bill Koch was on the board of directors of the Smithsonian Institute. However, the institute’s web page lists only DAVID Koch as a member of the advisory board. Also I wonder about the claim that Bill Koch has “donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the community.” Yes, thousands have been donated, mostly through his coal companies, but “hundreds” of thousands? Seems like the kind of exaggeration a politican would make. Wes Perrin Paonia

Give credit where credit is due Dear Editor: The North Fork Mosquito Abatement District has a comprehensive trapping program and sets traps regularly within the boundaries of the district from June to September. There are approximately 18 traps set weekly in the NFMAD district by the volunteers. There are 10 traps set by the Delta County Health Department, five in the Delta area and five in the Surface Creek area. The ONLY reason the health department knew that there was WNV in the early part of the season in the NFMAD district was due to the work of the NFMAD volunteers. Trapping mosquitoes is not that difficult, but, and this is a big but, you have to be very careful about using repellant! You can’t get repellant anywhere near the traps, you can’t have it on your hands, you can’t spray it on in between setting a trap here and setting a trap there. In other words, the trapping crews

put themselves at risk every time they go out! And that’s not the whole story: There are the counters and identifiers. Again, it is volunteers who count and identify every mosquito caught. The culex are separated off and sent down to the health department, which then forwards them to a lab where WNV testing is performed. When WNV is found in a batch, people in that area and the entire county are notified. The county has admitted that it does not have the personnel or funds to take over the 28 trap sites within the NFMAD District and Delta County. If it weren’t for NFMAD volunteers, there would be fewer mosquitoes trapped, identified, culex sorted and batches prepared for testing. No one would know that West Nile virus was active in the area or at the very least it would be less likely that people would know ahead of a human or animal case. Is

ignorance bliss? I heard someone smirk and make a negative comment about the appreciation party that was given for the volunteers. Give me a break. These people are doing a fabulous job, putting themselves at risk, and providing invaluable information to you and the Delta County Health Department. I heard Ken Nordstrom say over and over that, “We found the virus much earlier than usual.” We who? The NFMAD volunteer team in cooperation with Delta County — that’s who. I’m writing this because I would like everyone to know who should be getting the credit in the Hotchkiss and Paonia area for the early warnings and comprehensive monitoring. NFMAD. I just want to see credit served where credit is due. In appreciation for all who work to help to keep us informed. Keeping safe is a personal responsibility. Lulu Volckhausen Paonia

Do-gooders do good Dear Editor: I want to thank Dick Moore for his letter to the editor (Sept. 19 DCI) calling attention to the pervasive littering problem in Delta County. I share his disgust with the individuals who thoughtlessly dump trash on the roadside and our public lands, expecting the “trash fairies” to clean up after them. As a representative of local “do-gooders,” as Mr. Moore so aptly described the Conservation Center membership, I would like to remind him and the community about all the good that we do for Delta County. Last year alone, we helped private land owners protect 800 acres of wildlife and agricultural lands in permanent conservation easements, completed our 12th year of water quality and bacteria monitoring; collected 150 water samples for a selenium characterization study to evaluate the impacts of irrigation on water quality; brought 155 community members down the Gunnison River as part of our 13th annu-

al River Awareness Float Trip; hired local artists to install a river overlook platform at the Paonia River Park; organized a River Park volunteer clean-up day; organized over 1,300 volunteer work hours to remove invasive tamarisk and Russian olive trees along the river; published the 2012 Delta County Recycle Guide; successfully advocated for Delta County to install a free recycling center in Hotchkiss; organized over 300 volunteer hours for the Cherry Days Green Team and Zero Waste Zone; and sponsored Pick-Up America’s volunteer clean-up which collected 720 pounds of trash from local roads. We did this in addition to representing the hundreds of community members who asked us to fight an absolutely inappropriate lease sale that would allow drilling to occur next to our schools and water supplies. Maybe we are blowing our own horn, but the Conservation Center and our members do great work and we are an asset

to this community. Could we do more? Absolutely! Since we are a people-powered organization, we do as much as what the people of our community are capable and motivated to do. Do we pick up trash? Definitely! And we welcome anyone who is interested in making Delta County a healthier and less-littered place to stop by the Conservation Center’s office at 204 Poplar Avenue in Paonia. Ask about volunteer opportunities, become a member, or even sit in on our recycling or public lands committees. We can’t do it all, but the “do-gooders” of the Conservation Center sure do a lot. Why not join us? As our mission states, we welcome anyone who wishes to “protect, preserve, and enhance the natural, human, and economic resources of the North Fork of the Gunnison and the Lower Gunnison Watersheds.” Sarah Sauter Executive Director NFRIA-WSERC Conservation Center

Sustainable development draws a large crowd Dear Editor: On Sept. 22, three nationally known speakers came to the Performing Arts Center in Delta — Tom DeWeese, Dr. Michael Coffman and Michael Chapman, to educate citizens on sustainable development and Agenda 21. People attended from as far away as Aurora knowing the significance of

Consider before voting Dear Editor: Government dependency programs have jumped for the fourth year in a row, while an ever-shrinking number of we-the-taxpayers struggle to pay for them. Almost 50% of Americans pay no income tax to help fund the programs that almost 50% of Americans use for food, housing, school lunches, etc. This unsustainable system will surely collapse if we keep the same president. President Obama missed his daily INTEL briefings (not unusual) for several days before 9/11. The murders that day of our diplomats and Navy Seals in Libya were the result of a planned terrorist attack for which our embassy was inexcusably not adequately prepared or armed. This administration then unsuccessfully tried to convince us that the attacks were spontaneous demonstrations caused by an Internet video dis-

respectful of Mohammed. Obama should have been paying attention, but he thought that his election alone would magically change the world. Or he wanted the U.S. brought down a peg. Which was it? In 2008, candidate Obama pledged: “Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase — not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.” However, the CBO just determined that Obamacare’s insurance mandate will tax six million Americans a minimum of $695 apiece in 2016, increasing through 2022. Almost five million of those people will have incomes well below the federal poverty level, according to the CBO. Another broken pledge. Vote wisely. Our future is at stake. Angie Many Eckert

the information that was being put forth. Public officials, both elected and appointed, and candidates were invited to attend, including Scott Tipton, Don Coram, Ellen Roberts, Montrose, Delta, and Mesa County commissioners, sheriffs and all school board members and superintendents in both Montrose and Delta. Tickets were purchased for all Delta school board members and the superintendent and two tickets were given to one member of the board in particular in Montrose because she is also a candidate for a commissioner seat. Knowledge of Agenda 21 and sustainable development runs far deeper than just knowing when it was signed onto, which appeared to be the extent of knowledge by Kjersten Davis at a debate I attended at the Holiday Inn Express. The United Nations’ Agenda 21, sustainable development, is the covert takeover of our nation through policies and regulations put forth by different agencies such as the Forest Service, BLM, EPA, OSHA, to name a few. United Nations mandates are also being implemented through foundations and organizations that offer grants to our counties, cities and towns when they buy into and become a part of those grants. If a public official or candidate doesn’t understand how these policies, that restrict private property,

are being implemented through these agencies, foundations and organizations, how can they, as servants of the People, stand between those policies and the People? I must say there were interested officials and potential officials that attended, namely, incumbent Montrose commissioner candidates David White and Ron Henderson, Mike Mason, a lawful write-in candidate for Delta County, Rose Pugliese, John Justmen candidates for Mesa County commissioner positions, Jack Flowers, commissioner position for Ouray County, Gary Ellis Montrose County commissioner, Kathy Ellis, Montrose City councilwoman, Montrose Sheriff Rick Dunlap, Kathy Svenson, Delta County school board member and Caryn Gibson, superintendent. The conference brought an audience of 250 concerned citizens so I may have missed one or two other officials but I’m thrilled that it brought the interest that it did of those seeking to know more and understand better United Nations’ Agenda 21 and sustainable development. For those that missed the conference, we are selling DVDs at a cost of $25 for a set of four. Checks can be mailed to Barbara Hulet 2218 5900 Road, Olathe, CO 81425. Make checks payable to SDA Conference. Barbara Hulet Olathe

Additions to the rec center aquatics complex and fitness area will be budgeted in 2013, Delta City Council members agreed after hearing rec center manager Wilma Erven say she already has the funds on hand. The capital project will include a 40x70-foot multipurpose room that will be used for dance classes, spin (bike) classes and tae kwon do. The room currently used for dance classes will be converted to a racquetball court, as originally designed. The cost for that addition is $322,000; the aquatics additions have been priced at close to $2.2 million, although Erven believes the renovations can be completed for less. Plus, she believes, an increase in revenues will “much” offset the expenditure because people who have complained that the water is too cool and the pool contains too much chlorine will be much happier with the warmer temperatures and UV filtration. The 6,000-square-foot addition will incorporate a new therapy pool, wellness pool and “lazy river” for walking. Warm water temperatures facilitate rehabilitation for patrons undergoing physical therapy and are beneficial for those who suffer from arthritis and joint pain. Erven has the funds in hand, thanks to voter approval of a 3/4¢ sales tax extension in 2010. The rec center also receives a quarter cent from the

city’s 3.9% sales tax on a permanent basis, to help cover operations and maintenance. Parks supervisor Paul Suppes is asking for increased funding for flowers and chemicals. He showed a conceptual plan of the landscaping which will complement the new sign to Devil’s Thumb Golf Course at Highway 50 and H38 Road. He received a grant of $8,000 for a water tap, irrigation, trees and seeding, but will need a budget increase to cover the flowers he plans to plant in that area. In addition, he told council members former city manager Joe Kerby worked out an agreement with Maverik, the new convenience store under construction at the corner of Highway 50 and 92, to place two flower beds along Highway 50 and one along Highway 92. The three flower beds, which would be the size of the median planters, are to be planted and maintained by the city. They’ll require 250-350 plants each. The news of this agreement came as a surprise to council members. Saying she felt “blindsided,” councilmember Mary Cooper asked if there is a possibility of cutting back on other remote parks to help cover the increased cost of the new flowerbeds. The alternate truck route and visitors’ center will create even more opportunities for landscaping and maintenance. The flowers are nice, but they’re also expensive to maintain, Cooper noted. “I’m going to agree with Mary here,” said councilmember Robert Jurca. “Something is going to have to give.” Budget discussions with other departments are ongoing.

The Esplins are standing up to the treatment they’ve received from the federal agency.

calls from OSHA pressuring them to sign, the Esplins aren’t signing. The OSHA document also proposes that the Esplins will agree to other points including the following: • Accept provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970; • Waive rights to contest the penalties assessed in the agreement document; • Agree to submit to future OSHA “audits.” Bob Esplin replied to OSHA with an agreement document of his own requiring the following from OSHA’s Denver officials: • Provide certified proof of employment capacity with the agency; • Provide certified copies of oath of office and bond guaranteeing faithful performance of duties; • Provide certified copy of delegation of authority authorizing enforcement of federal law and to represent OSHA in the inspection; • Cite specific federal statutes and regulations that make Delta Elevator subject to OHSA jurisdiction; • Cite the federal statutes giving force and effect to the regulations that Delta Elevator has been charged with violating. Bob Esplin’s letter is dated Sept. 13 and it asks the OSHA officials to respond within 30 days. The Denver OSHA office did not respond by deadline to a DCI e-mail request for comment. Bob Esplin is standing up for his rights, and also for his family. “We have been in business in Delta 39 years as of August,” Esplin told the DCI. He and his wife have raised 12 children in the community. The OSHA payment plan of $292 per month for 24 months is money that, if the Esplins actually earn, is going to help pay their children’s and grandchildren’s college expenses, Bob said.

Intrado team supports housing projects Intrado, a Colorado-based company that assures 911 emergency alert systems work in America, sent 18 volunteer workers to assist in remodeling Delta’s Hope House and a second family home in Lazear this past week. This is the third year Intrado has supported the work of Habitat for Humanity in Delta County. Brian Davenport, an employee of Intrado and son of Fred Davenport, a local builder in Delta, organized the philanthropic endeavor. Part of the team worked with local Habitat volunteers to paint, build an addition and remove old windows and faulty shingles at 260 Howard Street in Delta. Habitat is partnering with Drug-Free Delta County (DFDC) to provide transitional housing for persons in recovery from substance abuse. Earlier in the week, Habitat local volunteers Ed Bliss, Fred Davenport, Charlie Bishop, Felix Trujillo and Steve Herrera poured a foundation and pad for a new addition to the DFDC facility. The Intrado team also completely sheetrocked and replaced windows on a needy family’s home in Lazear.

Homeless shelter seeks home of its own After two seasons of operating in the basement of the Delta United Methodist Church, the volunteers and board of directors at the Abraham Connection/Delta County Homeless Shelter are ready for their own building.

“We have grown exponentially over the past two seasons of service,� said board president Cheryl Oeltjenbruns. “We have loved serving our guests while housed at the church and we’re very grateful to that congregation for their hospitality, but we know that we will only continue to grow. We need our own space.� The homeless shelter is open seasonally from Nov. 1 through April 30. During the past two seasons, volunteers spent over 7,800 hours providing 679 bednights and 1,126 meals. From season one to season two, both the number of guests served and the number of bednights/ meals increased threefold, Oeltjenbruns said. The board hopes to raise $275,000 through a combination of private donations, fundraisers and grants in order to purchase a building. This past summer, the board was able to raise about $8,000 from various

fundraisers. That money was added to the building fund. The board has nearly $25,000 set aside for the building purchase. Several grants have been submitted, and the board will be notified in December if it received any of those monies. The board of directors launched a capital building campaign on Oct. 1 to raise funds to purchase its own building. Through the “A Home of Our Own� campaign, individuals, businesses and civic organizations can buy a square foot or can sponsor a room. One square foot is $120, and can be paid at once or spread over 12 months. Two square feet is $200. Those who buy one or two square feet will be recognized on a donor plaque, which will be hung at the new shelter. There is also the opportunity to sponsor a room. At the $1,500 level, you can sponsor a counseling room or a computer room, which will be used for kids’ homework help, to help guests search for jobs or apply for benefits. At the $2,000 level, you can sponsor our intake/ reception area, which is where guests are first screened for suitability for shelter each evening. At the $5,000 level, you can sponsor a family room, bathroom/showers, or separate sleeping areas for families, veterans, women and men. Lastly, for $25,000, you can sponsor a kitchen. All room sponsorships from $1,500-$25,000 will allow the donor or donors to name the room. “We encourage families or several groups to

go in together and sponsor a room,� said board member Kathi Bledsoe. “Your gift will truly make a difference in the lives of those we serve.� “All along we have said that the Abraham Connection is truly a community operation,� Oeltjenbruns said. “We aren’t serving a lot of transients. We serve those in our community who have fallen on hard times. We can better serve our guests, and serve more guests, when we have our own space. And to do that, we again ask for the community’s help.� The “A Home of Our Own� campaign will run through the end of October. All donations are tax-deductible. The board has put out a flier detailing the campaign. Pick one up

in Delta County businesses, or call the shelter phone at 773-8290 for a brochure to be mailed or e-mailed to you. Please also call that number for any questions, or to vol-

County audit shows finances in good shape BY HANK LOHMEYER Staff Writer

The Delta County Commissioners got a good report on county finances from auditor Pete Blair who delivered his 2011 audit report at a recent meeting. According to the audit report Blair delivered orally to the commissioners on Sept. 17, the county’s assets exceed its liabilities by $154 million, mostly in roads and other infrastructure. Other highlights of the report were that the county has $13.2 million in available cash reserves, $2.4 million of which is restricted for particular uses. The county’s general financial picture is greatly improved because it carries no debt. Blair was highly complimentary of the county finance department and

of Margaret Davey and Sandy Cross who keep track of county finances and documentation needed for the annual audit. County treasurer Jim Ventrello was also singled out by Blair for exceptional work handling county funds. In a separate item at the commissioners’ meeting, they discussed the issue of possibly divesting ownership of oil and gas mineral rights underlying 33 parcels that have other surface ownership. Two individuals recently contacted the county wanting to purchase the county’s oil and gas rights underlying their private surface ownership. County attorney Christine Knight told the commissioners that to divest any of the rights requires a public sale, according to state statute.

Jaden Cowley, a senior at Delta High School, completed his Eagle Scout project and passed his board of review in July. He plans to be awarded the honor at a Troop 481 Eagle Scout court of honor later this fall. By receiving his Eagle award, Cowley joins an elite group of only 2.1 million fellow recipients since 1912, despite enrollment of nearly 90 million boys into the Boy Scouts of America over that same period of time. Fewer than 2 percent earn Boy Scouts’ highest rank. Notable Eagles include political figures President Gerald Ford, Donald Rumsfeld and Ross Perot, astronauts Neil Armstrong and James Lovell, professional athletes John Beck, Deuce Lutui, Albert Belle and Bill Bradley, movie producer Steven Spielberg and financial mogul Sam Walton, to name a few. Cowley completed over 21 merit badges and multiple rank advancements,

served in positions of leadership and provided hundreds of service hours while on this trek. His final project was to design, collect materials, construct and erect two covers for the youth baseball fields behind the Bill Heddles Recreation Center. He completed the construction in the spring of 2011. Cowley had much help from the community and he would like to thank first his parents Neil and Ronda Cowley and his family for their support; secondly, Troop, 481, sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its congregation; and thirdly, Paul Suppes, Delta city parks manager. Materi-

Jaden Cowley als were donated by ISI, Doughty Steel, Pro Build, Ace Hardware, Rocky Mountain Rebar and

Sherwin Williams. Cowley hopes the dugout covers will protect players from the elements and any foul balls. In addition, Cowley is very active in his school and community where he participated in cross country, football and basketball, was junior class president, senior class treasurer and continues to work on student council. He holds a leadership position in his church as first assistant in the Priest Quorum to the bishop, Matt Clark, of the Delta Ward. He is a member of the National Honor Society and hopes to study journalism at Brigham Young University.

This course is designed for 10- to 15year-olds who want to develop skills in safety, responsibility, leadership, decision making, problem solving, handling emergencies, resume writing and interviewing.

4-H’ers join national celebration

Photo by Hank Lohmeyer

4-H’ers thankful for support The county commissioners are personally acquainted with most, if not all, of the Delta County 4-H Council officers who paid an annual courtesy call on Monday to say, “Thank you for your support!” The commissioners each received a handsome desk set and coffee mug as a token of appreciation. A brief adjournment of the bi-monthly commissioners proceedings gave opportunity to enjoy some refreshments and to get caught up on a little neighborhood news. Present for the event with commissioners Bruce Hovde, Olen Lund, and Doug Atchley were 4-H County Council officers and adult advisors Mackenzie Katzdorn, vice president; Tyler Simpson, co-president; Tyrell Clock, co-president; Tess Gore, historian; Grady Simpson, treasurer; Trenton Carr, historian; Tiffany Clock, secretary; Natalie Anderson, reporter; leader/advisors Heidi Simpson and Chandra Carr, and Jackie Goza, extension agent.

Delta County 4-H’ers are joining nearly seven million boys and girls nationwide in observing National 4-H Centennial Celebration Week, Oct. 17. In Delta County more than 300 4-H members and 115 4-H leaders are involved in the program. The fundamental 4-H ideal of practical “learn by doing” experiences encourages youth to experiment, innovate and think independently. 4-H programs are offered through community clubs which are run by local volunteer leaders. 4-H is a community of millions of young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. You can join the 4-H community today. To learn how to become a 4-H member or volunteer leader in Delta County, contact Jackie Goza at 874-2195 or stop by the Extension office at 525 Dodge Street in Delta.

4-H encourages a positive attitude Optimism is one of the most important gifts adults can give to a child. When a young person has hope for the future and can find a bright side to most bad experiences, the young person will grow up healthy, caring and confident. But what makes a child positive and hopeful? How

can we, as adults, shape that optimism? The solution lies in promoting youths’ possibilities rather than their shortcomings — in reinforcing their strengths instead of their weaknesses. Research shows that the payoff can be significant. Young people who have a positive

view of their future are more likely to do well in school, contribute to their community and value diversity — and are less likely to become involved in violence and drug or alcohol abuse or to drop out of school, . The following tips are some ways adults can help youth become posi-

Extension agent values the principles of 4-H BY PAT SUNDERLAND Managing Editor

The fundamental 4-H ideal of practical “learn by doing” experiences encourages youth to experiment, innovate and think independently. These principles are fully embraced by Jackie Goza, area 4-H/youth extension agent. She was hired for the position after Isaac Muñoz switched his focus to agricultural projects in Montrose County.

Jackie Goza Jackie Goza was involved in 4-H, rodeo and livestock when she was young. Born in Montrose, she grew up in Fruita and attended the University of Northern Colorado after graduating from high school. She obtained a degree in elementary education and taught school for seven years. Although she’s taking a break from teaching, she is still involved in youth development

at a different level. She believes her educational background meshes well with the curriculum offered through the 4-H program. She also worked as a parent educator for Bright Future, planning programming with volunteers and leaders. “Extension goes hand in hand with what I’ve done in the past,” she said. She’s been on the job since March, getting to know 300-plus 4-H members, about 100 volunteer leaders and all the parents, fair board members and CSU Extension staff it takes to pull off the county fair every year. “I felt my first fair was a real success, and I’m off to a good start,” she said. With strong adult volunteers, Delta County is able to offer 26 4-H clubs and a wide spectrum of curriculum options. “Anybody can be involved; you don’t have to live on a farm,” she said. Goza recently took about 10 4-H members to a state conference in Fort Collins where they had the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and she attended workshops for extension agents. That experience reaffirmed her decision to return to 4-H. “I truly believe in what 4-H represents, and the values it teaches our kids,” she said. They’re the same val-

ues she is teaching her two young daughters, ages 6 and 2. In addition to putting names to the faces of 300-plus kids and their parents, she’s learning how things are done. Coming up quickly is 4-H Achievement Night, which will be held Oct. 20 in Cedaredge. Awards are presented, but above all 4-H members are recognized for all they’ve learned during the past year, and the ongoing support from volunteers and businesses which make the program a success is acknowledged.

tive about their future: • Help young people feel valued and empowered by spending time with them, listening to their ideas, and helping them act on their convictions. • Be a role model. Young people pay attention to the way adults deal with confrontation. Model peaceful conflict resolution by responding to anger or frustration with compassion and tolerance. • Let young people know that failure isn’t fatal. Help a young person put defeat into perspective and find a positive side to the experience. • Nurture young people’s confidence and selfesteem by looking for opportunities to praise their efforts and point out their strengths. Young people are more likely to build positive identity assets when they are encouraged and supported. For more information about 4-H, call the Delta County 4-H office at 874-2195.

Baptists influence Karen resettlement in Delta BY ANNETTE BRAND Staff Writer

This is the second article addressing the Karen and Karenni refugees from Burma (also called Myanmar). Late last spring Karen and Karenni families,

resettled from Burma, began moving into the Alta Vista de la Montaña, the agricultural housing complex in North Delta, and their number continued to grow over the summer. The families were

resettled to Delta from the Denver area, Texas and Utah. Pastors and churches of the American Baptist denomination have assisted substantially in their resettlement. The American Baptist

denomination has a long missionary presence in Burma. In 1812 American Baptist missionary Adoniram Judson sailed on the last ship out of Boston Harbor before the British attacked, starting the War of 1812. Judson spent 34 years in Burma and translated the Bible into the Burmese language. Three years ago Rev. Steve Van Ostran, executive minister with the American Baptist denomination, visited First Baptist Church in Delta. Pastor James Conley said Van Ostran talked about his work in Denver with the refugee community out of Burma. He asked Pastor Conley and his congregation to pray about how they could become involved in this ministry. In the spring of 2011 Pastor Conley was contacted by Janet Johnson, a Karen refugee advocate/ volunteer from the Front Range who is personally invested in helping refugees from Burma. Janet Johnson said, “Pastor James has been a critical key to the relocation of the refugees and their smooth transition to Delta. He and his staff did not hesitate a moment to ‘get on board’ with support of these people. “First Baptist did mission work and provided Vacation Bible School that summer as well as this past summer to the Karen church in innercity Denver.” Pastor Conley visited Burma for ten days in November 2011 for mission work hosted by the American Baptist Convention. He shared sermons and met with some of the seminary students, learning about their work in Burma. To describe Janet Johnson as an advocate for the Karen is an understatement. She made four medical mission trips to Thailand to visit the refugee camps where Karen people were subsisting. After those trips she said, “I need to ‘step out’ and do something to help these humble, desperate people, either in Burma or the ‘concrete jungle’ of inner-city Denver where for years they wait for employment.” Johnson explains that the U.S. State Department and the United Nations screen families as countries offer relocation opportunities. Thailand refuses to assimilate them. Some refugees must wait years for placement somewhere in the world. There are now over 4,000 refugees from Burma in the Denver

area alone, waiting to be resettled. Most refugees come to the United States, she said. Johnson came to the Western Slope in 2011 searching for ways to bring about resettlement and to find employment opportunities and available housing. She said, “I saw evidence of God ‘preparing the way’ when my first approach to a major grower in Palisade revealed a family who had been to Burma, knew of this ethnic group and gave me a referral list of growers they knew would hire the workers, after a call from them. “The next day I had 15 growers’ names and 100 jobs. These jobs in the orchards are a natural fit as the Karen and Karenni are from agrarian backgrounds and villages. They grow up in homes where they use ladders to enter, which accounts for the natural agility and balance critical to working on trees.” Johnson’s search for housing became a smaller task when she discovered the Alta Vista de la Montaña housing complex was under construction. The apartments were completed by the time of resettlement to Delta of the Karen and Karenni. The residents of the apartments must earn 65 percent of their annual income from agricultural work and must be legal residents of the United States. Rent is based on the household’s yearly income and will not exceed 30 percent of yearly income. Johnson says, “These people want jobs and not government aid, which they are given in the inner-city. They see what unemployment does to a culture after living for years in refugee camps in

Thailand to be safe from the genocide in their own country. They are a high moral, ethical culture grateful to be living in a free country with opportunity — especially for their children. I believe they will become some of our outstanding citizens one day.” Johnson said the prospect of moving families to Delta was a bit daunting but, with the help of Foothills Community Church of Denver, whose members had already mentored several Karen, the exodus of a few families seemed feasible. When the families arrived in Delta, Pastor Conley and his congregation were there to help them with all the tasks necessary in settling in to new homes and a new environment. Pastor Conley’s assistance on behalf of the Karen and Karenni in Delta includes meetings with community groups and school district personnel to help with planning for Delta’s new population’s integration into the community. He and volunteers from his congregation, teachers from the school district and community volunteers tutor the students on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at First Baptist. He and members of the church drove the children to local doctors for the physical examinations required before they entered school. His congregation is there when need arises. Some Karen and Karenni residents worship on Sunday at First Baptist, in a joint service, with an interpreter speaking in the native dialect for some parts of the service, and later in a shorter service in the native dialect of the Karen and Karenni. Pastor Conley participates in both services.

Back to 4-H Night planned In celebration of National 4-H Week, the Delta County 4-H Council will be hosting a “Back to 4-H Night” at Bill Heddles Recreation Center on Wednesday, Oct. 10, from 6 to 7 p.m. Local youth and parents are invited to come for pizza, punch and music, and to visit with current 4-H members about how to get involved in 4-H. There will be a display of some of the winning county fair projects and the 4-H mem-

bers who created them. This program is free and all interested families are welcome to attend. Delta County 4-H is open to all youth ages 8-18, as of Dec. 31. In addition, there is a program called Cloverbuds for kids ages 5-7. Please RSVP on or before 5 p.m. on Oct. 8. Call 874-2195 to let CSU Extension know how many people are coming, so there will be plenty for everyone to eat and drink.

A Home of Our Own After two seasons of emergency, overnight winter shelter for the homeless and hungry of Delta County, and after providing 679 bednights and serving 1,126 meals, it's time the Abraham Connection had a home of its own. Volunteers have staffed the shelter at the Delta United Methodist Church, thanks to the generous support from that congregation. But with increasing numbers of hungry and homeless, it's time this community shelter operates in its own building. When we have our own home, we can help more people move from homelessness to self-sufficiency! Can you help your community? Can you help make sure those in need have a warm, comfortable safe place to sleep this winter?

Terrific Kids

Your community needs your help! Help us get our own building by donating a square foot. Get your friends, families, church families or civic groups together and sponsor a room. Have a lasting impact in Delta County by serving those in need with your building fund contribution.

All-American Families is known as Families Plus locally, said Brenda Holland, director. Families Plus coordinates community-based support for at-risk families to help them and their children succeed as an intact family unit. The program relies almost exclusively on volunteers to help with mentoring activities. There are some 60 children and their families involved in the program at present, Holland said. The Mountain Harvest Festival was represented by Helen Highwater and Shiela Maki. The festival, now in its 12th year, provides support for the business and non-profit community, and it is also involved in a year-round scholarship program for local area students, Highwater explained. The festival welcomes participation from other communities in the region, Maki said. Representing Friends of the Cedaredge Public Library were Judy Benns and Jude Keica who explained the group’s library support activities extend beyond the Cedaredge Public Library and include helping fund new book purchases when funds were cut from the county budget. A new outdoor extension of the library’s meeting and activities space is now in use, and the Friends’ Book Sale is scheduled again during AppleFest, Oct. 6-7. Altrusa was represented by Jo Rosenquist and Vivian Gibson, a founding member of the 27year-old group. Focus of the 60-plus member service organization is literacy. Among the programs that Altrusa supports are the libraries, Food for Thought, Baby’s First Book, Haven House, the domestic shelter, and HIV awareness activities, explained Rosenquist and Gibson. The group is also sending books to orphanages in Africa. Girls on the Run is an after school program for girls in the third through sixth grades, explained director Jill Henwood. It is a local branch of a national program that lists 176 Delta County girls on its membership roster. The local Girls on the

Run has one of the lowest registration fees of any of the local branches, Henwood said. The Wells Fargo grant money will be used to provide scholarships for more girls to afford registration and participate in the program. The grant to Western Colorado Interpretive Association was accepted by Robert McHugh of Paonia. McHugh is helping lead the Save the Hotchkiss Barn project, and WCIA is the non-profit organization sponsoring grants for the work. The Hotchkiss barn was built by Enos Hotchkiss in 1885, McHugh said. It represents unique architecture for this area, is a historic structure, and was badly damaged in a wind storm two years ago. It is still owned by members of the Hotchkiss family, he said. Statewide, more than 200 qualified, community-based non-profit organizations in Colorado will receive funding in 2012 from Wells Fargo through the Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund. Eligible organizations must be certified 501(c)(3) and have an annual budget of $350,000 or less. The Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund was started in 1993 to provide greatly needed support to small, nonprofit groups that don’t have the resources to compete with larger organizations for community support dollars. Since its inception, more than 3,800 grants totaling more than $3.6 million have been awarded.

Home business approved in Paonia BY KATHY BROWNING Staff Writer

According to the Town of Paonia’s land development regulations, those who wish to conduct a home occupation must go through a special review before the planning and zoning commission and the town council. This is to make sure the home occupation will not create a problem in the residential neighborhood. Tenille VanVleet came before the Sept. 18 planning and zoning commission and the Sept. 25 town council to request approval for a photography and design studio in her home at 215 Colorado Avenue. Mayor Neal Schwieterman read the minutes from the planning commission. VanVleet said she would use the front room, a bathroom and two closets for her studio. That would be about 354 feet of the first floor’s 1,814 total square feet. A home occupation must be no more than

25 percent of the total square footage. VanVleet’s usage is less than what the regulation requires. Her customers will all have scheduled appointments, so there won’t be any walk-in traffic. Neighbors have offered VanVleet extra parking spaces if needed. Gene Grange offered parking on his lot at 205 Colorado Avenue. The Bible Center Church offered parking for her family if needed. VanVleet told the planning commission that she does not expect more than one to five cars per week due to her business. Her sign will conform to code, not being larger than 1x2 feet. The sign will be hung from her front porch. The council saw no problem with VanVleet using her backyard for her photography. Like the planning commission, the council unanimously approved VanVleet’s home occupation request.

Traffic delayed on McClure Pass Motorists have been having short delays on McClure Pass during daylight hours MondayFriday and some weekends while the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) repairs two culverts near the summit on Highway 133. Two 48-inch corrugated steel pipes are being reinforced with plastic liners and grout. Some large equipment and a crane will be necessary to complete the project. At the same time, crews are constructing new headwalls, improving the guardrail and conducting some erosion control. American West won the $373,000 contract for the project. Work is expected to be completed by Nov. 2 if the weather cooperates.

Railroad would like to close 3 crossings BY KATHY BROWNING Staff Writer

When Kelly Abaray, manager of special projects for Union Pacific Railroad, came to the Paonia Town Council meeting on Sept. 25, she addressed safety issues related to crossing and to apologize for sidewalk crossings improperly installed in 2005. The recent railroad crossing accident which killed 87-year-old Carol Basford of Paonia has added concerns about safety. The fatal accident happened at the Delta Avenue crossing. Abaray said there have been “five crossing accidents since [Union Pacific] tracking began in the mid 1970s.” As a result, Union Pacific submitted a crossing closure proposal. This would “close redundant, passive crossings in Paonia.” Those crossings are in the North Fork Subdivision at North Fork Avenue, Oak Street and Delta Avenue. These three crossings rep-

resent six locations where a train/car collision can happen. Presently, there are 10 locations where a collision can occur. If these crossings are closed, the number of possible collision locations would be reduced to two crossings or four locations. Union Pacific plans to conduct a closure study including a traffic study, prepare the necessary Colorado Public Utilities Commission (PUC) application, remove crossing surfaces and make contributions to the Town of Paonia to cover roadway barricade costs. “Crossing closure/consolidation decisions should be based on balancing public necessity, convenience and safety,” Abaray said. State law requires the crossing cannot be the only crossing providing access to property. To support keeping a crossing open, a professional licensed engineer in Colorado

The slower the better With every muscle straining, the last two riders in the Slow Bike Race at Paonia Town Park try to outlast the other.

must write “that the crossing is safe in its’ current state.” The closed crossing must be within 1/4-mile of a crossing with lights and gates. Abaray reported, “The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is actively working to establish and further a public and industry goal of closing 25 percent of this nation’s highway-rail crossings.”

Union Pacific sees the benefits in crossing closures. The highest level of crossing safety occurs when there is not a point of intersection between the roadway and the railroad. Crossing closures result in reduced maintenance costs for the roadway authority and the railroad. All collisions with trains or collisions without trains being involved at

crossings will be reduced. The Colorado PUC has “primary jurisdiction over all public highway-rail crossings, including opening, closing, upgrading, overpasses or underpasses, and the allocation of costs.” The PUC would make the final decision to close the crossings or not.

North Fork Community Montessori School students performed songs about the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights on Constitution Day, Sept. 17.

Valuable lessons about our Constitution BY KATHY BROWNING Staff Writer

The United States Constitution was signed on Sept. 17, 1787. In honor of that momentous occasion, Cami Bair, a teacher at North Fork Community Montessori School, wrote special curriculum for her students. The week of Sept. 10-14 the students learned about the Constitution, and on Sept. 17, Constitution Day, they presented a seven-part series of skits. The skits covered what the Constitution is, who made it, why they made it, what are the rights in the Bill of Rights and why the Bill of Rights was added. They also learned about some of the later amendments. The students discovered why there are the different branches of government and how power is shared between the government and the people. “The government is accountable to the people,” Bair said. The students finished their presentation with songs about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. After the presentation, Bair quizzed her students. Ruby Chase and Graham Waltermire wrote that the Constitution is “a piece of paper with the rights that keep us free written down.” Who wrote the Constitution? Abby LaBounty said, “Some of the founding fathers.” Malachi Deck answered,

“George Washington and Benjamin Franklin.” Several answered why the framers made the Constitution. “To keep us safe,” Lydia Puckett said. “They wanted the country to have good laws,” said Simon Cox. “So we could defend ourselves,” said Luke O’Brien. Asked what are some of the rights in the Bill of Rights, Diego Lareau said the right to bear arms; Kayla Miller said freedom of religion; Milo Chavez named freedom of speech; and Baruch Chase said freedom of assembly. Arjun Bacigalupi said the Bill of Rights was added because “the framers wanted to add . . . more details to the Constitution.” Concerning the amendments, students had a variety of responses. Crystal Goddard said, “Soldiers should not come in your home.” Otus Beason said, “Don’t rat on yourself.” “Don’t let policemen hurt you,” said Ellie Feder. “Policemen need a warrant to come into your house,” said Carmen Stickles. Abby LaBounty said, “Women and people of color can vote and the president can only be elected twice.” Born in England, Cami Bair understands the importance of the Constitution for the American people. “England does not have a written constitution. All law is based on prior jurisdiction. Some of which dates back to the time

of William the Conqueror,” Bair said. “And to me having it written down — that’s a big deal. I remember when I came to America that feeling of ‘It is guaranteed in writing.’ That felt very good to me. It’s one of the reasons I moved to America.” Regarding the fact that the U.S. Constitution is also a living document where the people can vote by state to amend the Constitution, Bair said, “I think that is absolutely wonderful. I think it’s wonderful that the responsibility to uphold it is on us. It’s just a piece of paper. So, to follow it and uphold it is [something] people have to decide to do. The kids learned it’s voted on by the Supreme Court whether something is constitutional or not. And then they learned that law is passed by Congress . . . and the president enforces it. Without our police, military and courts, the Constitution would just be a piece of paper. “It was so wonderful to me to start teaching it last year. For an abstract idea, it’s very important. It’s hard to teach something that abstract to kids that little, but it’s important. I’m glad we did it. And I want to keep doing it every year.” North Fork Community Montessori is a Delta County public school.

Split vote in favor of new broker of record BY KATHY BROWNING Staff Writer

Trustee Corinne Ferguson recommended to the Paonia Town Council on Sept. 25 to appoint Dollie Shaub of New England Financial as the new broker of record for the town’s employee retirement accounts. Shaub would help guide the town on its retirement plans by gathering information and bringing the town options. The town council would have final approval of the plan. Shaub would then work with Cindy Jones, Paonia finance officer, and with town employees so they will understand their investments. Shaub’s commission is already built into the cost of the accounts. Ferguson stated currently no one is guiding the employees and warned the town may not be in compliance with IRS guidelines as a result. The employee retirement accounts were with Founders which was purchased by Dreyfuss

p

10 years ago. There has been a lack of communication to the town, Ferguson stated. Ferguson recommended Shaub in part because she is on the Western Slope and can come to Paonia. Ferguson said some paperwork regarding the retirement accounts has not been done since 2009. Ferguson moved to approve Shaub as broker of record. Trustee Brian Ayers said he didn’t feel the council had done due diligence in researching other possible candidates. Ferguson disputed that, stating she had done the research and was presenting her findings to the council. Trustee Ross King also was opposed to taking action at this time. However, the council by a four to two vote approved Ferguson’s motion. Those in favor were Ferguson, Eric Goold, Amber Kleinman and Larry Wissbeck. Both Shaub and Cindy Jones were present for the council meeting.

Roailroad FROM PAGE B1 there were crossing projects in Paonia at Second and Third Streets. These included upgrades from passive crossings to active warning devices, flashing lights and gates installed; installation was paid for by Federal Section 130 funding; yearly maintenance was to be paid for by Union Pacific; no surface renewal project was done and consequently existing timber remained; and there were no closures of the three crossings. As to the sidewalk crossings at Second and Third Streets, Union Pacific track maintenance will take care of repairs inside of the railroad ties ends. Abaray apologized at the beginning of her presentation for the state of the sidewalk crossings. She had reviewed the condition of the crossings prior to the council meeting. Union Pacific also wants to provide Operation Lifesaver presentations from Colorado OLS. Union Pacific will hire a consultant to prepare the closure study. After that, Union Pacific would like to meet with the Town of Paonia to discuss the closure study and a crossing closure agreement. There will be a public meeting for citizen comments. The Town of Paonia and the North Fork Coal Working Group had Corona Research prepare a “Paonia-Area Quality Of Life Survey” in November of 2001. This was a railroad crossing noise and safety survey. Corona Research reported the survey of Paonia residents within town limits and in nearby rural areas found railroads and crossings are “a daily part of life and travel in the local area.” Eighty-three percent of local residents live within five blocks or less from

railroad tracks. The survey showed that “the vast majority of residents rate the local quality of life as ‘good’ or ‘excellent.’ . . . Residents are more than twice as likely to say that trains positively impact their quality of life as they are to cite a negative impact.” The majority of respondents said train noises are “slightly less irritating than car and truck traffic noise.” Those who have lived in Delta County for 10

years or less find train noises including whistles “much more irritating than do long-time residents.” The study said “train noises have an acquired tolerance.” The study found “most residents believe that local railroad crossings are safe” and that “those who believe that crossings are dangerous are almost equally likely to place primary responsibility on driver behavior or the design of the crossing, as opposed to the behavior of trains.”

Corona Research reported “most residents would prefer not to close railroad crossings, even if it reduces noise and/or foregoes costs for safety improvements.” Sixty-seven percent of residents would prefer to keep both train whistles and warning bells. The three railroad crossings were not closed after the public hearings and studies between 2002 and 2005. Citizens on Sept. 25 seemed to be more in favor of the closures.

Mountain rescue Members of West Elk Mountain Rescue were involved in the search and rescue of a lost climber in the Lead King Basin near Marble. They were contacted about 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, when the climber became separated from three companions while climbing Snowmass Mountain. The missing climber was spotted Sunday morning, and 11 members of the West Elk Mountain Rescue, carrying rescue gear, climbed up to the injured hiker at around 12,800 feet elevation. They were joined by members of the Western State Search and Rescue. Because of the severity of the injuries from an apparent fall, a helicopter extraction was made. Using ropes and a litter, the patient was lowered down a cliff and loaded into the helicopter just before sunset. The injured climber was takendto Aspen Valley Hospital, and was subsequently transferred to a Denver hospital. The rescue teams hiked back out and arrived at the Marble Fire Command Center at 10:30 a.m.

Montessori kids create Christmas mandalas BY KATHY BROWNING Staff Writer

North Fork Community Montessori students in grades first through sixth made ornaments for the U.S. Capitol Christmas tree last week. Art instructor Shannon Castle said a few days before the Oct. 1 due date, “I think it will be interesting for the kids to think about their artwork being sent to the Capitol. They can make something that can be displayed in an important place. Each of them will be unique.” Castle used acrylic paint and recycled fabric to make the mandalas. The fabric remnants came from thrift stores. Because the ornaments have to be able to withstand being outdoors, she wanted to make them lightweight. The painted designs used radial symmetry. If they put a design in one section, they repeated it, so

The theme is ‘Celebrating Our Great Outdoors.’ the design goes around in a circle. Some of the symbols represent Colorado, such as a tree, plant or favorite animal that will be repeated in their design. The kids chose complimentary colors for their ornaments — red and green, purple and yellow or blue and

orange. Fifty-four students made mandalas to send to the Capitol Christmas Tree Project in Washington, D.C., however seven of the students liked theirs so much they chose to keep their mandalas. Colorado was chosen to select a tree to stand

before the Capitol Building and be decorated with 5,000 hand-made Christmas ornaments. Another 1,000 ornaments will decorate smaller trees inside buildings around Washington, D.C. Montessori is a public school in the Delta County School District.

eyes made from Anthracite coal from Somerset, hats from old socks and recycled yarn and beads. They are large enough for the Christmas tree placed in front of the U.S. Capitol. A final design uses disks which are the

Rec district celebrates another great year It has been a hot summer and another great one at the North Fork Swimming Pool located south of Hotchkiss at 333 Bulldog Lane. Close to 7,500 people used the pool this season, with lap swim, water aerobics and swimming lessons continuing to be popular. Earlier this year a new, more energy-efficient pool boiler was installed, saving money on both heating and maintenance in the future. Thanks to a great staff and to every-

one who made it to the pool this year. Also, for the first time this summer, the North Fork Pool, Park & Recreation District, in conjunction with the Helping Hands Program, hosted the Summer Lunch Program. It was a huge success, serving over 1,700 meals to kids. Helping Hands is currently looking to secure funding to continue the program next summer. In late August the North Fork Pool, Park

& Recreation District applied for a Greater Outdoor Colorado (GOCO) grant to rebuild the Apple Valley Tennis Courts in Paonia. GOCO grants require a 30% cash match. To meet this requirement, the District was joined by pledges of support from the town of Paonia, Delta County and the Friends of Apple Valley. COGO will announce the grant awards in December. If successful, the project will be implemented this spring.

North Fork Vision has a new academic team

A Crawford job seeker sees firsthand how she can tap into a variety of services at her local library.

Virtual Workforce Center demonstrated in Crawford As part of Workforce Development Month, a time focused on services to job seekers and employers, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment joined forces with six libraries to provide demonstrations of a new technology called Virtual Workforce Centers. At libraries in Fairplay, Pagosa Springs, Cheyenne Wells, New Castle, Springfield and Crawford, job seekers had the opportunity to see how virtual case management, training, document storage capabilities and other features on dedicated workstations could assist in their job search. Virtual Workforce Centers feature many of the same employment opportunities provided by Workforce Centers, Colorado’s statewide network of employment offices, without having to travel to the nearest local office. Workforce Centers provide quality job placement and related services to

job applicants and assist Colorado employers with their staffing needs. “But even with all the workforce centers that are in place across the state, they can’t be in every community,” explains Department of Labor and Employment executive director Ellen Golombek. “The Virtual Workforce Center is a way to add points of service for us. The greater outreach they offer will help us enhance service delivery and cost effectiveness in government.” In addition, Virtual Workforce Centers add value to the libraries in

A total of 46 libraries across Colorado are participating in the Virtual Workforce Center project through either dedicated workstations with virtual case management functionality (30 locations) or a workstation reserved in each library for jobs search activity only (16).

Vanessa has also taught advanced placement science courses and has experience working at both traditional and private schools. Gubser and Hoff will work together to provide science enrichment activities like the science fair. Hoff explained, “Last year was the first time that North Fork Vision hosted a school science fair. Three of our learners went on to the state science fair and were awarded a special recognition from the American Psychological Association for their work. We want to continue to offer these experiences as our kids are really curious, and they can direct that curiosity into scientific investigation.” Kerry Noonan is the new educator consultant highly qualified in language arts at the elementary school level. She is a licensed elementary teacher in Colorado and

New Mexico. She has a degree in biology and an endorsement in Spanish. Noonan has over 10 years of classroom experience working with elementary school students. Her experience includes training in differentiated instruction, reading and writing strategies and working with gifted and talented students. Wendi Thompson also joins North Fork Vision as a highly qualified educator consultant in language arts. She will focus upon the secondary level learners. Thompson has a master’s degree in secondary education and a bachelor’s degree in English. She has classroom teaching and tutoring experience. North Fork Vision Home and Community Program director Teri Kinkade said, “We are really fortunate to work with this great academic team. They bring strong educational experiences in addition to excellent abilities to support the development and growth of the whole child. That is what we are all about.”

Missed extra point costly for ‘Dogs’

Bruins stun Bulldogs, 21-20 jandro Alejandro kicked the extra point for a 7-0 Bruin lead. Hotchkiss’ first possession on offense began at its own 48. The Bulldogs moved the ball to Cedaredge’s 32 where they bogged down and elected to go for the first down on a fourth down play. A penalty against the Bulldogs moved the ball back five yards forcing Hotchkiss to punt the ball away. Each team had two more possessions in the first quarter with neither scoring points. Cedaredge led 7-0 going to the second stanza. The Bulldogs were in possession at quarter’s end and continued their drive into the second period. A Josh Hardin pass was picked off three plays into the period but was nullified on a Bruin pass interference penalty that gave Hotchkiss a first down at the Bruin 34. Galley scampered into the end zone from two yards out to culminate a 70-yard drive that took 22 plays. Galley’s PAT kick tied the score at 7-7 with 1:58 left in the first half. Cedaredge was hampered by penalties on its next possession and was forced to settle for a halftime score of 7-7. Galley sparked the Bulldogs with a 48-yard second-half kickoff return to the Bruins’ 37-yard line. The first play from scrimmage went to Tren-

ton Tamayo who rumbled through the middle of Cedaredge’s defense for 37 yards and a score. Galley’s kick failed, leaving the Bulldogs ahead 13-7 with 11:44 left in the third quarter. The ensuing kickoff from Galley went to Madaleno at the five-yard line. Madaleno weaved his way out to the Bruins’ 45 where Cedaredge began its first series on offense following halftime. Markley hit Madaleno for 12 yards and a first down at the Bulldogs’ 30. Four plays later, Cade Wasser hauled in a Markley aerial for a 13-yard scoring strike. Alejandre’s PAT kick failed, leaving the score tied at 13-13 with 8:18 left in the third quarter. The Bulldogs began their next series of downs from their own 35. A run to the 44 set up a Galley scoring jaunt that covered the remaining 44 yards. Colton Farmer kicked the extra point and Hotchkiss held a 20-13 lead. Reid Gates took the ensuing kickoff at his own five and danced his way to the Bruins’ 37 for Cedaredge’s next starting spot. Markley hit Cade Wasser and Gates for 15- and 21-yard receptions to move the ball to Hotchkiss’ 22. The Bruins lost five yards on a play that had the officials and chain gang confused. What was thought to be a first down

near the 20-yard line was eventually ruled not a first down. The ball was spotted five yards back from where it was supposed to be marked, making the Bruins’ fourthdown play a fourth-andsix instead of a fourthand-less than one. Fortunately for Cedaredge, Markley rectified the call with a 25-yard option run for a touchdown. A two-point conversion was completed with a Markley to Cade Wasser pass to give Cedaredge the lead at 21-20 with just 3:22 left in the game. Hotchkiss had the ball at its own 48 as the third quarter ended. A holding penalty was whistled against the Bulldogs to start the fourth period. Galley tried his halfback option pass on the next play and was intercepted by Gartman. Cedaredge took over at the Hotchkiss 49 and moved the ball to the 10 before the flags began falling. Markley skirted his left end for an apparent touchdown that was nullified on a 15-yard penalty that moved the ball back to the 25. Two plays later, the Bruins had the ball at the 10 once again. This time, Markley threw a 10-yard scoring strike to Cade Wasser. The play was nullified on a fiveyard procedure penalty that pushed the ball back to the 15.

ley had 12 solo and six assists and 10 and 1 postings respectively. Randy Brown, principal at Cedaredge Middle School, noted that the last time a Bruins’ football team had scored a victory over Hotchkiss might have been the 2002 season. For those who missed this contest, it truly was a hard-played and closely-contested battle. Conversations with both coaches prior to the game noted the concerns for their opponents. From coach Lemon, “We’re concerned most for their team speed. They might have a little more than we do, but we may have them up front. It’s going to be a battle.” Even though coach Milholland appeared confident, he had concerns about the Bulldogs’ past record. “They have been in big games and know how to handle themselves under pressure. They are well-coached and highly competitive.” Both were correct in their thoughts and the fans had the honor of watching an outstanding high school football game under the lights on a Friday night. Cedaredge is at Carbondale to face the Roaring Fork Rams on Friday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. Hotchkiss is also on the road for an encounter with the Lake County Panthers in Leadville on Friday at 7 p.m.

Eagles soar to 42-9 win BY TAMIE MECK DCI Sports Writer

Paonia opened 1A Western Slope League competition last Friday with a 42-9 win over Roaring Fork. For the Eagles, who were also enjoying the annual homecoming celebration, it seemed that little could go wrong. “We had a few turnovers and penalties,” said head coach Scott Rienks after the game. “But, hey! Other than that...” Taylor Walters was up front to block on the opening kickoff and wasn’t expecting the ball, which went short and wide to the right, to come his way. The ball bounced inside the 30 and he could hear coaches yelling from the sideline to let it go out of bounds, said Walters. He looked up to see teammate Logan Schopp block a Rams player, giving him a clear view of the goal line more than 70 yard away. He grabbed the ball, “And I just

kept running as hard as I could,” said the freshman. “Oh man, that was exciting.” Place kicker Jorge Quinonez put the ball through the uprights to give Paonia a 7-0 lead with just under 12 minutes remaining on the clock. Paonia held the Rams to a three-and-out on their opening possession, then executed a 74-yard, 13-play drive that ended in a 1-yard touchdown run by Will Austin. Quinonez’ PAT gave Paonia a 14-0 lead. The Rams got to work, running the ball deep into Paonia territory, but were held to a 27-yard field goal with just four seconds remaining in the first quarter. Paonia turned the ball over on downs at midfield to start the second quarter. The Rams and Eagles exchanged possessions on fumbles. A second fumble by Roaring Fork was recovered by Gun-

nar Chesnik at midfield. That set up a 14-yard touchdown run by Jesse Reed and a two-point conversion pass from Ty Coats to Austin to give the Eagles a 22-3 lead. On the next Rams possession, Jared Byrge recovered a fumble at mid-field. On first down, Taylor Katzer carried the ball to the Rams’ 29. Austin had two carries to put the ball inside the Rams’ 10 and set up a nine-yard scoring run by Walters; Quinonez kicked the PAT to give the Eagles a 29-3 halftime lead. The Rams threatened to score early in the second half following a 14play drive that took them deep into Paonia territory. But the Eagles’ defense made a goal line stand, taking over on downs following an incomplete pass in the end zone. Paonia took advantage of a penalty against Roaring Fork, which put the ball inside the Rams’ 40. The Eagles were forced to

punt, but another Rams penalty gave the Eagles a first down and set up a 10-yard touchdown run by Morgan Rieder. A Quinonez PAT gave the Eagles a 36-3 lead at the end of the third. The Rams scored their only touchdown of the night early in the fourth. This was the first time in recent years the two teams met on the field, but with Roaring Fork dropping to Class 1A this season, they will meet again. Austin had 21 carries for 126 yards and two touchdowns. Reed was seven for 39 and a 14-yard touchdown run, and Rieder had eight carries for 33 yards and one touchdown. On defense, TK Kendall led the Eagles in tackles with 10, and Walters and Joel Simianer each had nine. Josh Altman, Rieder and Keaton Kropp also had key plays to help shut down the Rams offense.

This was the first varsity game for Quinonez, a three-year soccer player for Hotchkiss and lead scorer for the Delta Panthers’ soccer team. He hasn’t played in a football game since eighth grade. Quinonez would have kicked in the Eagles’ win

against Dolores a week earlier, but the game was moved from Friday night to Saturday, which conflicted with his soccer schedule. Quinonez said after Friday’s win that he was encouraged by football PAONIA FB TO B8

It was a game of middle-of-thestandings’ teams with the Panthers (2-1, 3-2) holding an edge in the win/loss columns over the Demons (2-2, 2-3).

Chris Black continues to be Whiteside’s main target in the receiving corps. Black gathered in four passes that accounted for 61 yards and one touchdown. Senior Doug Hawkins caught two

passes for 31 yards and Saul Sanchez had 26 yards and a touchdown on two passes. Other Panther receivers and their totals included Zach Decker with 22 yards and two snags, Robert Williams and 17 yards on one reception and Tyler Sandoval with seven yards on one catch.

enough racers to place as a team. Hotchkiss lead runner Cody Bartlett said after last week’s Hotchkiss Invitational that he would be aiming for a time in the mid-16s at Anna Banana. Bartlett surpassed his expectations, finishing fourth, and one second under the old course record, with a time of 16 minutes, 21.5 seconds — almost 40 seconds faster than his personal-best time set two weeks ago at Eagle Valley. Andrew Tiedemann placed 15th out of 147 racers, completing the course in a personal best time of 17:06. Tyrell Clock, who finished in 18:16.9, Taylor Schreiner (19:20.3), Mason Oxford (19:49.5), and Keegan Palmer (20:52.9) all set personal records Saturday. The Hotchkiss boys had 217 points to finish seventh overall; Grand Junction Central won the meet with 121 points. Both course records fell on Saturday. William Scoggins of Rangely broke the men’s record by 19 seconds to win in 16:03.2. EvaLou Edwards of Bayfield finished in 17 minutes, 41.3 seconds to break the girls record of 18:57, set in 2009 by Johanna Reed, a Paonia student who ran four years for Hotchkiss and graduated in 2010.

Almost every runner posted personal records, with some of the younger runners finishing minutes ahead of their best times. “It was a really good day for us,” said coach Richard Hypio. The Anna Banana course is largely flat and fast and is where many personal records fall. This year’s field of male runners was more than

140 strong. First-year runner Clay Carney, who is one of several runners using cross country to stay in shape for winter sports, took more than a minute and a half off of his personal best time. Second-year runner Garrett Morgan shaved a minute off of his best time to finish the 5,000-meter course in just over 20 minutes. Ethan Ferguson finished in 19 minutes, 40 seconds — a minute and 10 seconds faster than his best time this season. Austin Katzer also set a PR of 21:10.6

Jason Sturgis led the Eagles to place 37th with a personal best time of 17:44.7. Jacob Helleckson cut almost 10 seconds off his personal best time to finish in 18:31.4. With 486 points, the boys’ team tied for 18th place with Meeker. This year’s field of 129 female racers was the fastest in the meet’s history. Eva Lou Edwards of Bayfield broke the course record of 18:57, set in 2009 by Johanna Reed. Reed, a Paonia High School student and four-time winner at Anna Banana, ran PAONIA XC TO B9

Paonia FB CONTINUED FROM B7 coaches and players to come out for the team and began practicing just over three weeks ago. “It just comes natural to me,” said Quinonez, who was three for four and kicked a fourth PAT in the second quarter, but the play was called dead before the snap on a Roaring Fork penalty. Quinonez said he was only in the game “for a couple of plays, but oh man! The adrenaline really kept me pumped.” The Eagles travel this Friday to Meeker. The Cowboys are 1-3 overall following a 21-6 conference win over Lake County (0-5, 0-1).

13-1 Eagles play final home game of the season Saturday BY TAMIE MECK DCI Sports Writer

If the Lady Eagles were up for a challenge in Friday night’s homecoming match against Rangely, they were disappointed. Despite a week of homecoming distractions, the team stayed focused, defeating the visiting Lady Panthers in three quick games (2511, 25-16, 25-21). The short match gave them plenty of time to prepare for Friday night’s homecoming football game against Roaring Fork. Paonia wasted no time in neutralizing the Panthers, who are known for their hard hitting

on offense. “We blocked their main hitters a few times early, and that really had an impact on their offense,” said coach Krista Carsten. The Paonia offense played equally well, controlling the ball throughout the match. Except in blocking, the team had one of the best games of the season in terms of errors. They were offered few opportunities to record blocks, as Rangely’s lead hitters made numerous unforced errors at the net. Freshman Taylor Carsten, who leads the league in serving aces, made nine consecutive serves in game one, and

ended the game with four service aces. Paonia recorded 37 kills in 102 attacks. On defense, Carson Pipher led the team in digs with 16. “It wasn’t the game that I had anticipated from Rangely, but I know they will be tough to beat on their home court in a couple of weeks,” said Carsten. It was Paonia’s second blowout of the week. In a Sept. 25 conference match, they played a convincing three-set win over visiting Vail Christian (25-12, 25-18, 28-26). Ce’rra Carsten led the team in kills with 15. With a 7-4 overall, 42 Western Slope League

record, the Lady Panthers are ranked third in Max Preps’ 2A league standings. Meeker is in second place with a 7-3, 3-0 record. Paonia is alone in first place with a 13-1, 7-0 record and remains at No. 8 in Colorado Preps’ state 2A rankings. The Lady Eagles host their final home game of the season this Saturday in a conference match against Hayden. The Lady Tigers are 3-8 overall after last week’s wins over North Park and Soroco. C-team competition begins at 4 p.m., followed by junior varsity and varsity matches at 5 and 6 p.m.

Lady Bulldogs lose volleyball matches BY TAMIE MECK DCI Sports Writer

The Lady Bulldogs’ league record took a hit Saturday after suffering two losses in the Vail Valley. Hotchkiss fell in four sets to Vail Christian and in three to Vail Mountain. The losses bring the Lady Bulldogs’ record to 4-7 overall and 1-3 in the 2A Western Slope League. This Friday they travel to Meeker to face the 7-3, 30 Lady Cowboys.

Hotchkiss wins volleyball match against Bruins, 3-0 BY TAMIE MECK DCI Sports Writer

In volleyball, it was an up day for Hotchkiss and a down day for Cedaredge, as the Lady Bulldogs defeated the visiting Lady Bruins in straight sets (25-19, 2510, 25-16) last Tuesday. Jordan Smith led Cedaredge in kills with

five, with Rachel Latta and Summer Herman contributing three each. Cedaredge struggled with its second and third touches, committing 16 errors in 50 attacks. Lady Bulldogs Savannah Rocha, Katie Evans, Daryl Batt and Kristina Deloury pounded the Lady Bruins with kill

shots. It was the second meeting this season for the neighboring rivals. On Sept. 4, Cedaredge was defeated at home in a close, 3-2 match. Since Hotchkiss dropped from Class 3A to 2A this season, this is the last time the two teams will meet on the court this season.

Delta soccer season down to four matches BY WAYNE CRICK DCI Sports Editor

Delta High School’s inaugural season in 4A WSL play has been anything but a pleasing success. Delta finds itself at the bottom of league standings with a league record of 0-4 and 2-9 overall. A pair of losses this past week didn’t help matters. The Panthers fell (3-0) to 3A Aspen and Grand Valley (2-1). The Panthers traveled to Aspen on Tuesday (Sept. 25) to take on the Skiers. Edwin Soto netted two goals while teammate Robinson Coulter scored the third goal for Aspen. Two of the goals came in the first half

with Dylan Braswell being credited with an assist. Saturday’s encounter with Grand Valley took place in Parachute. The Cardinals scored both of their goals in the first half on shots from Luis Vicencio and Santos Cornejo. Will Hinkle had one assist. Delta scored its lone goal in the second half. Battle Mountain continues its hold on the top spot with records of 7-0 and 9-0 overall. Summit is second at 5-1 and 6-3 with Steamboat Springs third at 5-3 and 6-4. Palisade is shown in fourth place with marks of 5-4 in both league and

overall matches played. Eagle Valley is fifth (35 and 3-6), Glenwood Springs is sixth (1-5 and 2-6), and Rifle is seventh (1-6 and 2-6). Following Tuesday’s (Oct. 2) match in Gypsum against Eagle Valley, the Panthers will have three matches left in the 2012 season. An Oct. 11 contest with Palisade has been moved from Delta to CMU and the Oct. 13 game with Grand Valley has been moved to the 20th and will be the Panthers last game. Seniors will be honored at that contest. The Oct. 18 match with Moffat County is still set for Oct. 18.

Paonia XC CONTINUED FROM B8 for 3A Hotchkiss. Paonia split from Hotchkiss and formed its own team this fall. Both teams now compete in Class 2A. Junior Taylor Polson set a new personal record of 20:09.9 to place 16th. Chelsy Reed ran her best time of the season, placing 32nd in 20:54.8. Chelsea Mielner set a new personal record of 21:29.2 to place 56th. Mandy Bushta and Braiden Clement raced to the finish line, said Hypio. Clement crossed

the finish line in a season-best 22:06.8, and Bushta set a new personal best time, finishing in 22:07.1. Sophomore Joanna Briese, who ran her first varsity race last week at Hotchkiss, shaved more than three minutes off of her time to finish in 25:42.6. The girls’ team placed ninth with 237 points. This year marked the 10th anniversary of the Anna Banana meet, which is held in memory of Anna Lee Janowitz, a

Fruita Monument High School star cross country runner who was killed in a car accident on her way to practice at the age of 17. In all, 23 schools from as far away as Bayfield, Greeley and Denver competed at the meet. Next Saturday, Paonia will be tested by the altitude when it competes in the Chris Severy Invitational at Aspen High School. The school is situated at 8,043 feet in elevation and consists of moderate ascents and descents.

Delta VB team splits games BY WAYNE CRICK DCI Sports Editor

It’s an up-and-down season for the Delta High School Lady Panthers volleyball team. Delta (32 and 7-6) hosted Battle Mountain on Thursday, Sept. 27, and completed a 3-0 sweep over the Lady Huskies. Against Summit (1-4 and 3-8) on Saturday, the Lady Panthers could not find consistency in their game and suffered a 3-1 loss in 4A WSL play. Against Battle Mountain, Delta had a solid effort in the opening set with a 25-21 win. Battle

Mountain played well and kept the score close throughout the contest. Skylyn Webb started the second set with three straight kills as Delta built a 6-0 lead early and had a 10-point edge at 18-8 before rolling to a 25-15 win. The third set was a mirror of the first set with Delta scoring a 25-21 win for the match victory. Callie Gafford had nine kills to lead Delta, with teammates Webb (8), Brooke Taylor (6), and Shelby Curtis (5) contributing at the net as well.

Bruins win two ball games BY WAYNE CRICK DCI Sports Editor

Following last week’s softball doubleheader sweep of Grand Valley, Cedaredge finds itself in the middle of the standings with a league record of 4-3 and 6-10-1 overall. The Lady Bruins defeated Grand Valley 22-6 in game one and then scored a 12-2 win in game two. In the first game, Kaitlyn Kissner and Jazmine Gomez went five-for-five

at the plate with five RBIs each. Kissner had a double and triple while Gomez had a double. Other top hitters for the Bruins included Micaela Shaw who finished with four hits in five at bats and had three RBIs. Shaw needed a single to complete the cycle as she had a double, triple, and a home run for the winners. In all, Cedaredge had 25 hits in the game while Grand Valley was held to

just six. Cedaredge had big third and fifth innings in which they scored eight runs in each. Marissa Cantrell was the winning pitcher after going five innings and striking out six batters. In game two, the Lady Bruins scored four runs in the first inning and three more in the second to coast to the five-inning victory. Cantrell was three-forthree with the bat and

had one RBI and a double. Katie O’Hern was 2-2 with three RBIs and two doubles. Kissner had two hits, an RBI, and a double, while Heather Wilzcek was 2-3 with one RBI for the winners. Cantrell went five innings and struck out six hitters on her way to the win. Her record stands at 5-4 on the season. Cedaredge is set to begin regional play this weekend.

Of all the fall sports, tennis season is the shortest. Regional 8 4A action begins this Friday morning at Canyon View Park in Grand Junction. In Colorado prep tennis, schools compete either in Class 4A or 5A, based on the number of students. Of the eight schools competing in Region 8, Hotchkiss with 239 students and Cedaredge (267) are the smallest. Of the 75 schools in Class 4A, only nine have fewer than 300 registered students; 28 teams have more than 1,000 students, including Region 8 teams Montrose and Durango. Of the seven teams competing in Region 8, neither Hotchkiss nor Cedaredge have faced Steamboat Springs or Durango this season. The numbers alone put the small schools at a big disadvantage, but it hardly keeps them from giving the other teams a good run. This season, all three Hotchkiss singles players have posted winning records. Senior 1 singles Tony Ibarra enters regional competition with a 6-5 record after defeating a Grand

Junction JV player and losing to Aspen in last week’s final matches of league competition. The Skiers won the match, 7-0. That was pretty much expected, said head coach Brian Benson. No. 2 singles Brydie Mitchell and 3 singles Azure Eller are at 73 after their losses to Aspen. Mitchell, a senior, won, 4-6, 6-4, 1-5, over Grand Junction JV last week, while Eller lost for a second time to Grand Junction’s Sam Shaver. The Bulldogs’ No. 1 and 2 doubles teams will likely face tough competition in Friday’s opening round of regional play. No. 3 doubles Caleb Bayles and Josh Parsons are now 5-1 and have a shot at advancing, as do No. 4 doubles Alex Hulteen and Quentin Varner. Both teams won on Sept. 25 against Grand Junction JV (Hulteen and Varner by default). Coaches meet Thursday night to determine seeding, which means most players won’t know who they’ll face until opening matches begin on Friday morning. The top two placers in each flight advance to next week’s state competition.

School’s sign gets passing grade by town BY HANK LOHMEYER Staff Writer

The Cedaredge Town Board approved, after it had been installed, a variable message sign at Cedaredge Elementary School. The town, explained administrator Katie Sickles, has no authority to regulate the sign on school district property. Sickles told trustees at their Sept. 20 regular meeting that the issue was a “gray area” in the town’s newly adopted sign code, adding that the board could mount a legal challenge if it chose to.

declined, and instead issued a token approval. The sign is the first one to be installed in town since adoption of the comprehensive sign code revision adopted last month. In other business at their Sept. 20 regular meeting the Cedaredge Town Trustees dealt with the following matters: • There have been four interviews conducted for the part-time (24 hours per week) code enforcement position. • Anne Snyer reported that the recreation and cultural advisory committee has set goals of a historic plaque program for buildings; bike trail expansion; and working on more activities for youth and families. • The town administrator was authorized to get additional property and casualty insurance quotes for the town’s business. • Trustees denied a resident request for a new street light at 285 N. Grand Mesa Drive. • A water delivery agreement with the Cedaredge Cemetery District was approved. • Trustees adopted a drought response plan, reported on in detail previously in the DCI. • The board approved spending $12,500 for new equipment at the golf course. • Trustees selected consulting engineering firms for improvements at Main Street and Grand Mesa Drive. • A liquor license renewal was approved for Grand Mesa Liquors.

‘State of the Moose’ meeting scheduled in GJ Learn about the success story of bringing moose to the Grand Mesa Colorado Parks and Wildlife is inviting western Colorado residents to a public presentation and discussion about the state of the Grand Mesa moose population, and the current status of the relocation project that brought them here, Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 6 p.m., at the Northwest Region office in Grand Junction. Based on the latest moose population estimates, wildlife managers say that the relocation project can be considered a great success. “The project has gone far better than we expected,” said area wildlife manager JT Romatzke, of Colorado Parks and Wildlife in Grand Junc-

tion. “We encourage the public to attend this presentation and learn more about this fascinating species and about our continuing efforts to maintain a healthy moose population on the Grand Mesa for future generations.” Area residents first approached Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials with a proposal to bring moose to the Grand Mesa in 2001. After conducting an extensive feasibility study, the agency concluded that the area could sustain a modest population of the large ungulates. Funded almost entirely by the sale of hunting and fishing licenses, wildlife managers began relocating Shiras moose from Utah and other areas of Colorado in early 2005. Wildlife managers relocated 91 moose to the area before the transplant phase concluded in 2007. “It was difficult work,” continued Romatzke. “But

thanks to our sportsmen and our agency’s dedicated professionals we can say that this is one of our most successful wildlife management efforts.” Other partners contributing to the successful project included Safari Club International, the U.S. Forest Service and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. Because the Grand Mesa’s habitat proved to be exceptional for this species of moose, their population growth exceeded even the most optimistic expectations. “The Grand Mesa has truly great habitat for this species of moose,” said Stephanie Duckett, terrestrial biologist for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. “In fact, several sets of twins are born each year, a clear sign that they are thriving up there.” During the evening presentation and discussion, Duckett and other wildlife managers will offer interesting informaMOOSE TO C2

Two very different views of the community and its future were displayed at separate events in Delta County that took place within days of each other last week. The first event took place on Saturday, Sept, 22, when more than 300 local residents paid $8 each to attend a day-long seminar at the Delta Center. Organized by a local volunteer committee headed by Constitutional government advocate Barbara Hulet, the presentation featured three nationally-known speakers, Tom DeWeese, Michael S. Coffman and Michael Chapman. Each shared their years of research and documentation of a United Nations program launched in 1992, called Agenda 21. When Agenda 21 is fully implemented, they claim, it will supplant American national sovereignty and bring an end to American Constitutional government and its guarantee of individual freedom and liberty. The Agenda 21 speakers made the case that local comprehensive planning is one area where the UN Agenda 21 program for ultimate, topdown government control is undermining traditional American freedoms and creating a new global society. They say that Agenda 21 aims to restructure the American economy, its energy use, the media and education. Speakers said the Agenda 21 program is identifiable by a lexicon of politicallycorrect buzzwords that include the terms green, tolerance, global warming, multi-culturalism, sustainability, diversity and others. Four days later, on Wednesday, Sept. 26, the second event took place which tests the cautionary message of the Agenda 21 opponents. About 30 local elected officials, planning commission members, and staff from Delta County, City of Delta, Orchard City and Cedaredge gathered at Orchard City Town Hall for a seminar on “Planning 101.” Two officials from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) presented a program on “comprehensive local planning.” Those attending the DOLA session on Planning 101 at Orchard City are not people who anyone would believe are players in a global plan to restructure human society and usher in radical world government controls. They are the people that most folks in their communities know and may have voted for. They are professionals, retirees, newcomers and lifelong residents who have volunteered their time to help make their communities better places, or they are neighbors who work in positions of local government. So what, if any, is the connection between UN’s Agenda 21 program and the comprehensive plan-

The Planning 101 session didn’t make reference to any of the buzzwords said to be part of Agenda 21’s supposed new paradigm of thought, with one exception – “SmartGrowth” Andy Hill, DOLA director of the Community Development Office, began her presentation stating that DOLA provides only “technical and financial assistance” to community planning efforts which, she emphasized, are local. Her projector screen then filled with the image of a “SmartGrowth” guidebook used by DOLA and its Office of Smart Growth. A web search directs people to DOLA’s Community Development Office. The web search on “Smart Growth” also brings up links to national and world-wide programs. According to the Agenda 21 event speakers, “Smart-Growth” is a direct outgrowth of the UN’s program for “sustainable development and comprehensive planning.” Its goal, they say, is to remove natural resources and private property rights from individuals and replace them with government processes and government approvals. Hill’s presentation went on to give the local government planners useful tips on avoiding conflicts of interest, steering clear of legal pitfalls, handling ex parte contact situations, making proper motions, working with staff and various matters. Also, planning regulations are seen as necessary for government to ensure that developers are treated evenhandedly, and many citizens want growth and development controls in their communities. Other points in Hill’s Planning 101 presentation also included the following: • Slides portraying elected and appointed officials as clean-cut business types trying “to please everyone.” But citizen participants of planing meetings were portrayed as shouting and angry, making ugly facial expressions with negative body language and making rude gestures. • If one type of land use control doesn’t work, Hill advised the local planners to try others. There are dozens of dif-

ferent types of land use controls that can be used for a given purpose, and any two or three others might work in a particular situation. • Many planning commission members feel conflicted in their roles of “telling other people how to live.” • If an official in good conscience cannot support an official action, they are advised only to take notes, but to say nothing. They must vote with the “rules” and deal with their own private doubts and concerns at a later time. • There was emphasis on staging public events classroom style to enhance credibility, and on conducting public sessions to maintain control. • Hill referred to statutory requirements of the Colorado Open Meetings Law as “something nobody talks about anymore.” DOLA’s Community Development office offers

Agenda 21 became a public issue in Delta County when Roger Bentley stated his opposition to it in his bid for the Republican nomination for county commissioner. Bentley is a seven-year member of the Delta County Planning Commission.

Birds of the Western Slope A look at local birds with Evelyn Horn Yampa Valley Crane Festival I figured that if this festival could become a reality, it would be an astonishment. The promoters, those who opposed the crane hunt last spring, had too little time, no money and no experience in doing a festival. But wonder of wonders: the festival was a huge success. Most festivals start toward the weekend and end on the following Sunday. But this one started on Sunday! Crane viewing on the Nature Conservancy’s Carpenter Ranch, family activities, tours of the historic ranch house, a photography workshop, a picnic dinner and evening crane viewing, all geared to youngsters. Then on Monday, the activities, although similar, were geared toward the senior citizens of the area. When I first read the schedule draft, I thought, “Well, good luck.” But 175 people showed up for the opening events! On Tuesday and Wednesday, the events were held in the Bud Werner Memorial Library and the projection facilities there were excellent. A large screen, a hook-up from the laptop computers to a projection room above the meeting area made presentations clear and impressive. And the helper, Jennie, did a fine

job of helping the speakers. My presentations were well attended, as were those of Ken Strom

(Colorado Audubon) and Robert Skorkowsky (U.S. Forest Service). One of the pleasant additions was the continuously running video by Darlyne Merkel of Grand Junction: it presented endless scenes of our cranes. A surprise was the video called “Raising Kid Colt” by Faust and Bailey about a sandhill family in Homer, Alaska. Dr. George Archibald, the co-founder of the International Crane Foundation, spoke on Wednesday evening about high

altitude cranes: our sandhills that cross the continental divide and the five-pound Demoiselle that crosses the Himalayas. And now it’s over. I recall all of my concern and energy devoted to opposing the hunt of our sandhill cranes in northwestern Colorado last spring and I can consider that energy well spent. The crane-hunt proposal has been withdrawn and in its place is the inaugural Yampa Valley Crane Festival.

Sounds of bluegrass An enthusiastic crowd at the Pondy in Cedaredge enjoyed a live performance by Giddyup Kitty, an award winning female bluegrass band from Longmont. The group includes Kerry Claxton, Adrienne Yauk, Marni Pickens and Rose Pacacha. With their mix of original songs and classic covers made famous by Hank Williams, Kitty Wells and others, the night was enjoyed by all.

Contest winners are headed to Moose Manor BY BOB BORCHARDT Staff Writer

Although Sunday, Sept. 23 was more spectacular, “Color Sunday” (Sept. 30) turned out to be near perfect, as Grand Valley District Ranger Bill Edwards presented nine-year-old Jennifer Stuckenschneider and her parents, Tricia and Jack Stuckenschneider, with a certificate for a free overnight stay in the “Moose Manor” cabin on the Grand Mesa as part of the fifth annual Outdoor Heritage Day. This is the third year that the Forest Service has offered families a chance to win a free onenight stay in a National Forest cabin within the Grand Mesa National Forest as part of “Outdoor Heritage Day.” The “Moose Manor” cabin is located on the north side of the Grand Mesa National Forest, just off Colorado State Highway 65, within the Mesa Lakes Recreation Area. The cabin, constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s, sits in an aspen and spruce/ fir tree forest at an elevation of 9,500. Only families with children under the age of 18 are eligible to participate.

They are the winners of an overnight stay at Moose Manor, a U.S. Forest Service cabin on the Grand Mesa. Outdoor Heritage Day is a joint effort of the Colorado Parks and Wildlife, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the USFS, the Colorado Mule Deer Association (CMDA) and others to get families with children to actively participate in a variety of outdoor activities, such as hiking, fishing, camping, horseback riding, ATV/motorcycle riding, bicycle riding, family picnic or driving the Grand Mesa Scenic and Historic Byway.

Constituent’s remarks cut short BY HANK LOHMEYER Staff Writer

A constituent’s remarks at the Cedaredge Town Board meeting on Sept. 20 were judged by the mayor to be straying from the topic and the speaker, former trustee Nelson Cederberg, was asked to stop speaking. Cederberg was reading from a prepared statement on the topic of historic preservation efforts. But when he linked the topic to the problem of weeds and the town’s appearance, Mayor Pat Means asked him to stop speaking, saying he had

gone off topic and cited the need to conserve meeting time. Cederberg replied that he would bring the topic of his remarks back to historic preservation, which his prepared text did do. He was about to volunteer to serve on a town beautification committee when he stopped his remarks. Cederberg and his wife were the only citizens at the town board meeting not there to transact some business matter with the trustees. They both left soon after his remarks.

Winfrey (USFS Visitor Information Service), in order to participate in this year’s program, each family had to complete two activities on the Grand Mesa National Forest. The 22 families participating in this year’s program were then given stickers as proof for

each activity completed and the youth were asked to write an essay summarizing their experiences. The winners were then selected through a random draw. For their activities, the Stuckenschneiders hiked the scenic trail around Mesa Lakes and then went fishing. Writing about their experiences, Jennifer wrote, “Mesa Lakes is an amazing place for little girls! The first thing I do is jump out of the car and run to the path. The air smells like fresh pine trees with rain-soaked soil.” Jennifer also noted that that during the hike she looks for fairies and that the only sounds she hears is “the rustling of leaves and the footsteps of chipmunks mixed with mine.” When asked, Jennifer said she also plans on participating in next year’s program. For more information call USFS Visitor Information Office, Brenda Winfrey, at 242-8211.

Two stages of great music are brought to you by the Cedaredge Area Chamber of Commerce and its sponsors. Both the stage at Cedaredge Town Park and the TDS Main Street Stage open at 10 a.m. Saturday.

What’s a duck worth? Make MUFFLERS & BRAKES a guess to help out 5-year-old The Delta and Cedaredge Rotary Clubs have launched a fundraiser to purchase a handicapped-accessible van for a 5-year-old charmer by the name of Paul Duckworth. With support from the Crested Butte Rotary Club, the Rotarians are hosting a “What’s A Duck Worth?” van fundraiser at AppleFest. For a $2 donation ($5 for three guesses) contestants will guess, for prizes, the number of rubber duckies in the van (the rubber duckies are on loan from the Crested Butte Rotary). Paul has visited both local clubs with his mother so Rotary members could learn more about his disability. Paul’s disabilities are extensive. Born with spina bifida, he had the first of many operations on the day he was born. Paul is paralyzed below the waist. He also has Arnold Chiari II, severe

Paul Duckworth fluid on the spine. He was recently diagnosed with scoliosis of the spine, which may necessitate surgery every six months while he is growing, and then a spinal fusion when he is older. He has food allergies and distressing digestive issues. He also has sensory and gross motor challenges. Another thing Paul has is a brilliant mind and a beautiful singing

FFA Alumni will serve breakfast The Cedaredge FFA Alumni will be serving an AppleFest pancake breakfast on Oct. 6 and 7. The breakfast will be served on both days from 7-11 a.m. at the Cedaredge Masonic Hall basement, 295 West Main Street. The breakfast will include all-you-can-eat pancakes, served with

ham, juice and coffee. The price is $6 per person, with children under age 5 eating free. All proceeds from the breakfast will be used to fund various scholarships for students of the Cedaredge High School FFA chapter.For more information, please call Holly Jones at 8353446.

voice. Bev Stitt, who lives about 100 yards from the Duckworths, said it is very inspiring to listen to Paul. “I can hear him in nice weather when the windows are open and he is so full of joy when he sings. It is such a happy start to my day when I hear Paul sing.” Paul started kindergarten in Cedaredge this school year where he is social and engaging with his new classmates. Paul’s parents must make frequent trips to Denver Children’s Hospital for Paul’s extensive ongoing care with many physicians. Their family sedan is too small to transport Paul and all the equipment he requires. This means that Paul has to do without some of the equipment — such as a stander — that makes his daily routine much easier. The fundraising effort is in response to a very generous offer by a Rotary member who has made available a used handicapped van in excellent condition with a wheelchair lift at more than a third below the book value of the vehicle. Paul will attend the AppleFest fundraiser as much as possible; his parents, Rotary members, church members and neighbors will also be at the booth for the entire festival. His sensory issues make these kinds of events difficult, but Paul likes to socialize and meet people. The Delta and Cedaredge Rotaries are

also collecting donations on behalf of the project. Monetary donations can be made to Delta Rotary Club, P.O. Box 86, Delta CO 81416. Please note on any check “Duckworth Van Project.” The goal is to raise more than the purchase price so an ongoing maintenance fund can also be established. For further information contact Marjorie Conner at 856-3352.

Official poster is the work of local artist The Delta Fine Arts and its member artists from around the region agreed to sponsor an AppleFest Poster fundraiser for the Cedaredge Area Chamber of Commerce this year. The winning poster was created by artist Mary Key. The public voted for a people’s choice favorite during the Pops in the Park concert Sept. 5. There were more than a dozen entries by DFA member artists. The winning poster and rights to its use are

donated by the winning artist for the chamber’s use. The original will be featured in a silent auction during the Golden Gala and also during the two days of AppleFest. Key’s painting is a fanciful creation with, of course, an apple as its central theme. A man with an umbrella, dubbed by one wag as “Harry Poppins,” who appears to be dancing or celebrating atop a giant apple is actually a rendering of the artist’s father, explained a chamber official.

This original painting by artist Mary Key will be used for this year’s official AppleFest poster.

Cedar Mesa Club will Great selection of books be cookin’ at car show anticipated at fundraiser Once again the women of the Cedar Mesa Community Club will be serving up their popular homemade baked goods, breakfast burritos, and applewood-grilled hamburgers and bratwurst at the Pioneer Town Car

Rebekahs offer food, country store Elberta Rebekah Lodge #106 will be at the IOOF Hall, corner of Main and 3rd Streets, on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 8 to 5 and on Sunday, Oct. 7, from 10 to 2. They will be serving breakfast burritos and selling baked goods. Their Country Store will be open with items including a gazebo, recliner, chest of drawers, dinette set, old filing cabinet, glassware, antiques, books, toys and many miscellaneous items. Proceeds will be used to pay for utilities and maintenance of the lodge hall. The Rebekahs wish to thank the community for its support in the past and hope to see you at AppleFest.

Show Saturday beginning at 7 a.m. The club ladies are famous for their delicious scones, turnovers, cookies, pies, and breads, not to mention their breakfast burritos. All of these, plus coffee, will be available beginning at 7 a.m. at their booth which is set up in the covered area on the north side of the blacksmith shop in Pioneer Town, adjacent to the car show area. The breakfast burritos will be available until they’re gone. Come early, but fear not, more burritos are being made this year due to their past popularity. At 11 a.m. they’ll fire up the applewood grill to offer lunch of handmade hamburgers or bratwurst, along with pop, water, chips, cookies, and apples. The baked goods, coffee, pop, and water will be for sale all day until the car show closes down for the awards program at 2:30. The proceeds from sales at their AppleFest booth will help with the club’s non-profit activities. Throughout the year the club supports and donates to Surface Creek Community Ser-

vices (local food bank), Friends of the Cedaredge Animal Shelter, House of Promise, and Food for Thought. The club also offers a scholarship each year to deserving graduating students who reside on Cedar Mesa. At its AppleFest booth you can also get information on the club’s upcoming soup supper, which will be held Saturday, Oct. 20, from 5-7 p.m. at the Cedar Mesa Clubhouse, located at 15637 Peach Road on Cedar Mesa. This will be a departure from the gourmet sit-down dinner that the club usually presents at the end of October, but promises to be just as special. The proceeds from this event will go toward the scholarship fund. The Cedar Mesa Club ladies hope you will come have breakfast and lunch with them on Oct. 6 at Pioneer Town, whether you are with the car show or just a hungry spectator. Then buy a pie or bread or some cookies to take home for dinner. You will be helping out our local community with your purchases. For more information call 8564165.

Garden questions answered at AppleFest The Cedaredge Tree Board is sponsoring a garden information booth for the first time this year. The booth will be located in the town hall on Main Street. Look for the banner. Master gardeners from the Delta Extension office will also be on hand to assist tree board members in diagnosing plant problems and prescribing answers. Don’t forget to bring any plant material that might help

diagnose your problem. Any and all gardening questions are fair game. Come by and test the Master gardeners’ knowledge. There will also be a drawing for one of three books — Garden Insects of North America by Whitney Cranshaw, Weeds of the West and Insects and Diseases of Woody Plants of the Central Rockies. These are the primary books used by Master gardeners and

Book, art, soup mix benefit library The Cedaredge Women’s Literary Club celebrates books with two new projects to raise money for the Cedaredge Public Library’s collection.

Members have also prepared and packaged gift bags

of Literary Soup Mix, with help from the girls of the graduating class of 2012 from Cedaredge High School and start-up money for supplies from the Cedaredge Rotary Club. When you see these unique items, you’re sure to find some perfect hostess, thank-you, and Christmas gifts for folks on your list. The Cedaredge Women’s Literary Club will be at 505 W. Main at the northwest corner of Cedaredge Town Park.

Why does history matter? What do the documents and letters of our Founding Fathers tell us about the godly heritage of our nation? Learn more by viewing historian David Barton’s “The American Heritage Series.” Thirty-minute video segments will be shown all day Saturday, Oct. 6, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the First Baptist Church, right in the middle of AppleFest events on Main Street Cedaredge. Discover the forgotten and astonishing story of our naton’s foundation in the American Heritage Series. For centuries, Americans were taught a truthful view of history that recognized the godly heroes and moral foundation our nation was founded upon. But in recent years, a new version of history has assaulted the moral and spiritual fiber of our nation, leaving the truth of our past eliminated and forgotten. Until today. From separation of church and state, to the civil rights movement, the heroism of our Founding Fathers to the building of our nation’s monuments, this series will inspire every Ameri-

FROM THE PAST COMPILED FROM DELTA NEWSPAPERS By DELTA COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY 251 Meeker St., Delta • 874-8721 October 4, 1912 (From the Delta Independent) Just about all one can hear on the streets of Delta these days is “get together and boost.” Everyone seems to be answering the call of the newly organized body of young men who have started out to build up a Delta Chamber of Commerce, and whose success is practically assured. Arrangements have been completed whereby the new organization will take over the old body known as the Delta County Business Men’s Association and as soon as the few necessary preliminaries can be rushed to completion, the old Business Men’s Association will be no more and, in its stead, the Delta Chamber of Commerce will be born. The officers and directors of the old association agreed to resign and turn all real estate and other property over to the young men, together with its membership of forty-five, as soon as the Chamber of Commerce can show a membership of one hundred to its credit. The old Business Men’s Association

owns some sixteen lots in the southeast portion of Delta, besides other assets, all of which will go to the Chamber of Commerce. The liabilities only amount to $160. Percival E. Coombe will, for a time at least, continue to act as secretary. A monster “get-together” banquet will be given by the new organization on October 15, at I.O.O.F. hall, at which two hundred plates will be laid. A large gathering of the young men of the district who are interested in the going forward and up-building of Delta and Delta county is expected to be on hand that evening and it is more than probable that the membership of the new Chamber of Commerce will reach the one hundred mark, or better, before the banquet tables have been cleared. *** The board of county commissioners convened on Tuesday of this week for the transaction of all public business and one of the noteworthy matters taken up was the construction of the Hotchkiss and Uncompahgre bridges. Plans have been received from Engineer Maloney of the State Highway Commission and bids are to be called for at once. *** The Bank of Cedaredge has everything in readiness to change over to a First National on October 1st. *** The new State Bank in Cedaredge expects to open for business on October 1st with J.B. Lazear of Denver temporarily in charge. Mr. Lazear is now here making arrangements for the opening. *** It isn’t a real fruit season, you know, without a runaway. D.E. Eikenberry’s team claimed the honors Friday, very thoroughly distributing a load of orchard boxes along the highway in the vicinity of his house.

*** Harry Doughty has just replaced the old lunch car which stood just south of the Delta Café for two or three years, with a new building especially constructed and arranged for the lunch and restaurant business. *** Joe Harrington and J.B. Bainard arrived home from the Mesa county fair at Grand Junction last Friday night, having made an auto drive from that point. Joe stated that the run from the Mesa county metropolis had been pleasant but for the dust which was at least a food deep in places. *** The Joe Newman company entertained a fair sized audience at the Delta opera house Monday evening. Joe is one of Colorado’s best known and popular humorists. He can always entertain his auditors with up-to-date songs and sayings and he has a company of artists in both vocal and instrumental music readings, etc., who never fail to please. *** Bryon’s Troubadours were greeted by a large, appreciative audience at the Baptist church Wednesday evening. It was the first appearance of this excellent musical company in Delta and their presentation of a program comprising high class numbers, both vocal and instrumental, brought forth such approval from auditors that they will doubtless keep Delta on the calendar for future dates. *** Wanted – Bridge carpenters: $2.85 per day. Apply D.&R.G. Agent, Delta depot. ***

Celebrating 20 years of the Backpack Program “This is such an awesome program,” agree Carrie and Tanner Reed as they explore a Backpack box with their daughter Jordan, age 3. Their 5-year-old son Ty is a Backpack graduate.

BY PAT SUNDERLAND Managing Editor

wonderful evolution has taken place since the Backpack Program was implemented 20 years ago, but the basic precept remains unchanged: Supporting parents as their child’s first and most important teacher. The Backpack Program is a unique home-based preschool program that provides parents with free, themed boxes containing a wealth of teaching opportunities. Each box contains 7-10 books which establish the theme for the box. Activities, games, puzzles and crafts complement the theme, each offering an opportunity to develop a child’s language, writing, math, fine motor, gross motor and memory skills. For the kids, though, it’s just plain fun. “It’s like Christmas once a month,” says Crawford parent Stephanie Neff. “I won’t let my kids open the boxes until we get home, because we don’t want to lose any pieces, but then it’s really fun to watch them take everything out. They have a ball playing with everything in the box, but as parents we know we’re working collaboratively together toward a bigger goal.” All children living in Delta County who are at least 3 years old, but not yet enrolled in kindergarten, are eligible for the free program. Neff has rotated through many of the 58 themed boxes with her two older children. Still she’s as excited as her 3-year-old to read the books, play the games, and do the activities contained in each box. “We’ve loved the Backpack Program,” she says. “The Backpack crew works so hard at making each box fun and creative for the kids, and they’re always available with support if your child is struggling. They also sponsor a lot of activities where the families can get together. This is such a neat idea.” “This program is near and dear to my heart,” says program facilitator Lisa Mock. She started out as a Backpack parent in 2003, first with her son and then her daughter. In 2007 she joined the Backpack support group, cleaning boxes, replenishing materials and making exchanges. When program facilitator Judy Fairchild retired in 2009, Mock stepped into her position. Co-founder Terry Hotz retired at the same time and Angela Fedler took over her position as Delta County preschool director. “To this day I still remember my kids’ favorite boxes,” Mock says. “One of my son’s first boxes was a digger box which contained a hedgehog puppet that he loved. It was so hard to give that box up! We asked the Backpack ladies where they had gotten the hedgehog, and my mother and I went to Grand Junction to buy another one. To this day, the puppet sits on a shelf in my son’s room. ‘Hedgie’ will always be part of our family.” Because of memorable experiences such as that one, and the value she got out of the program as a parent, Mock is committed to sharing

the benefits of the Backpack program with all the parents who join the program every year. “It’s an investment for me, not just from an educator’s point of view but from a parent’s point of view,” she says. The Backpack program was proposed by a team of early child professionals in 1992 as a way to help support families in the enrichment of their child’s preschool experiences. Initial funding came from Title I and Delta County Joint School District #50. In the first year, 17 families signed up for the preschool Backpack Program. A kindergarten Backpack Program served children attending half-day kindergarten. The materials were initially placed in backpacks, but were soon transferred to Rubbermaid containers. Although the plastic tubs proved to be more serviceable and longer lasting, the backpack name stuck. The Backpack Program was initially housed in the “kindercottage” in Cedaredge. Summer enrichment kindercamps were offered to children involved in the program. When kindergarten went to a full day throughout the school district, backpacks were offered only to the kindergarten students who needed additional support. As the program continued to grow, operations were moved to the Special Services building in Delta and finally to the current location in the Delta Center for Performing Arts and Education. When enrollment topped 500, several programs were added to meet children’s needs. Backback Plus-A was a visitation program that provided remedial support to children with delayed developmental skills. A playgroup was offered to families of children with delayed developmental skills at Garnet Mesa Elementary. Then came the establishment of licensed preschools, a “proud child” of the Backpack Program. Backpack Early Learning Academy (BELA) preschools were started at Garnet Mesa and Lincoln, then expanded to Hotchkiss, Crawford and Paonia. There is no BELA preschool in Cedaredge, but through a collaborative arrangement with Little Sprouts Preschool, backpacks are delivered upon request to any Cedaredge area family. There are also some state-funded preschool spots at Little Sprouts. In 2007, Title I funds were suspended. Today the program relies on funding from the Delta County Department of Health and Human Services, Colorado Preschool Program, Family Literacy (Even Start), Cocker Kids Foundation, Temple Hoyne Buell Foundation, Daniels Fund, El Pomar and Anschutz Family Foundation. “This is an entirely grantfunded program with in-kind services from Delta County Joint School District,” Mock explains. “Money wise, we have to seek grants for every operational expenditure we have.” The Backpack factory in Delta keeps Mock and four

other employees hopping. They track 650 boxes, including boxes for developmentally delayed children, boxes for gifted and talented preschoolers, and boxes for bilingual learners. These boxes contain Spanish and English versions of each book, so preschoolers can read in their native language and in their new language. The boxes are themed, Mock says, because research shows that when a common thread ties learning material together, a child’s retention of that material increases. Pickup sites are offered in every community. Many times the boxes are left at the elementary school on the honor system. Parents leave the box they had the previous month, pick up a new box, and are on their way. For new families, though, a “box talk” is a must, so they get the most out of the experience. “I have a box in front of me, and I explain how important it is for parents to get excited about what they do with that box,” Mock explains. “There are a lot of toys and they’re in a box, so it’s easy to call it a toy box, but it’s not. It’s a parent tool box. I want them to use it as a tool, to pull out activities and sit down on the floor with their child and have great one-on-one activity with them because those are the connections that will make the difference in their child’s educational process. “It’s nothing magical. We don’t have a magic book, we don’t have a magic toy that makes their child do better in school down the road. It’s because they paid attention and they encouraged their child.” Mock points out that kids have a library of up to 10,000 words by the time they start kindergarten. Through the Backpacks, parents can expand their child’s vocabulary by exploring a wide variety of themes. “The boxes exposed my kids to different things than they might have had at home,” says Misty McCormick, the mother of a fifth grader, second grader and now a 4-year-old who have all been participants. Inspired by the Madeline

series of books, they tried speaking French. Games and puzzles taught problem solving. Her son sought out the math challenges, while her daughters have loved taking care of the animals in the veterinary box. When they discovered books they greatly enjoyed, they purchased copies for their home library. The boxes with dolls or princesses never appealed to her daughters, but they always had other choices, and the Backpack ladies quickly came to understand their preferences and to steer them toward boxes they would enjoy, McCormick says. In 20 years, thousands of kids in Delta County have been involved in the Backpack Program. Each child is screened in five developmental areas when they enroll in the program, and then again when they leave the program for kindergarten. That assessment illustrates how much preschoolers have grown and the skills they’ve gained in just two years. And hopefully, parents and children alike have learned that learning can — and will continue to — be fun as their education continues to kindergarten and beyond. 20-Year Celebration A fun-filled day has been planned Saturday, Oct. 27,

to celebrate 20 years of the Backpack Program. The day begins with a 5k family run/ walk beginning and ending at The Delta Center, 822 Grand Avenue. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., and the race starts at 8 a.m. There will be a one-mile loop for families who prefer a shorter option. Door prizes will be awarded at the conclusion of the race. An open house is planned from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., with a special presentation at 11 a.m. to recognize founders and funders who have made the Backpack Program possible. Community service providers have been invited to set up booths on the front lawn of The Delta Center to provide information and support to families. Giveaways and family activities will be ongoing. Lunch will be served by the Delta Lions Club and Hellman Motors will be sponsoring Drive One 4 UR School, a fundraiser for the Backpack Program. For each family that test drives a Ford from Hellman Motors, $20 will be donated to the Backpack Program. You can register for the run at deltaschools.com, or call 874-9517 for more information about any of the events planned for the Backpack’s 20th anniversary celebration.

The lid of every tub contains a checklist telling parents exactly what they’re getting — puzzles, art projects, blocks, books — along with suggested activities for each item. Blocks, for instance, can be used to create structures but they can also be sorted by color and into patterns to develop early math skills. The princess box is pictured above.

The Backpack Factory is staffed by (from left) Lisa Mock, Lidia Savage, Kim Dicamillo, Kathy Myers and Starr Baldwin. Savage and Myers have been with the Backpack Program since its inception in 1992.
