Pow wow falls victim to budget ax

Yanish murder solved after 28 years

By Pat Sunderland Managing editor

See The North Fork Times on pages 1-4B.

Elimination of the Council Tree Pow Wow will save the City of Delta about $41,000 in 2010, but organizer Wilma Erven hopes the event will return in 2011. During a budget work session last week, Mayor Mary Cooper said the pow wow seems to have “outlived its cycle.” In 2008 the event generated $64,105; this year — its 15th — it dropped to $45,758 (before expenses). While rain was a factor, there seems to be a “been there, done that” attitude from area residents. “It’s time to give it a rest,” Cooper said. The three Ute tribes who have partnered with the city’s culture department were approached about cost-sharing the event, but Erven said she’s had no feedback. “There has been some discussion, but discussion doesn’t necessarily end up in action,” interim city manager Glen Black said. “I certainly don’t want to throw the pow wow out, but if we’re not getting support it makes no sense to keep it,” council member Guy Pfalzgraff said. Council members expressed the hope that the event can be revitalized and brought back in the future. “The diversity and beauty that it brought to Delta for all of these years was so inspirational,” commented Jo-an Barnett, a resident of Delta. “I think that Wilma Erwin, staff and volunteers should be honored for their long-term commitment to Delta’s signature event.” The City of Delta is anticipating a drop in revenue of about $650,000

Habitat for Humanity plans open house Habitat for Humanity of Delta County will be having an open house for the dedication of the completion of a house for Mary Saunders. The open house will be at 910 Bluff Street in Delta on Saturday, Nov. 21, from 12:30 to 3 p.m.

On Nov. 8, Stephan Small unlawfully entered the LeMaster residence west of Cedaredge. The LeMasters were able to apprehend Small until sheriff’s deputies arrived and took him into custody. During the early morning hours of Nov. 15, an unknown suspect unlawfully entered the home of Samantha Sanchez on 2100 Road in Orchard City. When the suspect realized that Sanchez was home he fled the residence. Deputies were able to track the suspect to two other homes in the area where he checked the doors but found them locked and moved on. The Delta County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the first degree trespass and asks that you contact them or Delta County Area Crimes Stoppers at 8748810 with any information concerning the identity of this suspect. The Delta County Sheriff’s Office reminds you to lock the doors and windows on your house and vehicle as many times these types of trespasses are committed where entry does not require breaking in.

A work in progress Matthew Bohling muscles a large snowball into a “wall” of the fort he and friends built on the front lawn of his house on Delta’s 7th Street. Matthew, his sister Hattie and their friends, Caleb Bischof, Maia Bischof, Hannah Branson and Megan Branson, were delighted to wake to fresh snow both Saturday and Sunday mornings. Despite bright sunshine, remnants of the snow hung on through the first part of the week. Temperatures are expected to gradually warm up back into the 50s by the end of the week.

over 2009, with about a third of that drop expected in sales tax revenue. After making widespread budget cuts, the city is counting on fund balances and municipal light and power transfers to cover the shortfall. That’s a dangerous trend, Black pointed out. ML&P is facing debt service and an increase in the price of purchased power, which will result in a “significant” drop in margins over the next five years. By 2014, Black estimates, transfers to the general fund, golf course and unemployment fund will send ML&P into a negative balance. The one bright spot is the rec center, which has a “healthy” fund balance and where revenue is anticipated to be $44,000 higher than expenses. Golf course revenues are up over 2008, but fall short of the budgeted goal for 2009. A transfer of $611,000 from the municipal, light and power fund will be needed to balance the budget for 2009, with another $544,717 anticipated for 2010. Cutting back the city’s flower program will result in the elimination of a seasonal employee, as well as a $4,000 savings in the cost of the flowers. The business enhancement program will not be funded in 2010, though Delta County Economic Development submitted a proposal for those funds. Step increases, merit and cost-ofliving raises have been eliminated for all city employees, though they will see an increase in benefits due to rising costs for health and vision insurance. The budget was to be reviewed a final time Tuesday, Nov. 17, prior to formal adoption by city council.

Alan Helmick, a former longtime resident of Delta, was described as lonely and vulnerable when he met Miriam Helmick, the woman prosecutors believe responsible for his murder in June 2008. Helmick, 62, was found on the floor of his Whitewater home, killed by a single shot to the head. Miriam Helmick was charged with the murder about six months later. She’s now on trial for first degree murder, attempted murder and 11 counts of forgery. Opening arguments took place at the Mesa County Justice Center last week, as 12 jurors and four alternates settled in for what’s expected to be a lengthy trial. Alan Helmick was born in Delta and graduated from Delta High School in 1963. After attending Adams State College, he returned to Delta where he owned Helmick Mortgage and pursued land development projects. He and his wife Sharon raised their children in Delta. Her death from heart disease in December 2003 sent Alan Helmick into depression, chief deputy district attorney Tammy Eret told the jurors. In January 2005, he met Miriam. A month later she had moved into his home; in June 2006 they were married. “Some people will tell you she was in love with him,” Eret said. “More people will tell you she was in love with his money.” Eret methodically outlined the state’s case against Helmick, describing how Alan, a man of integrity who always paid his bills on time, was suddenly faced with loans coming due, past due bills and credit cards that were maxed out — the cost, she said, of funding a dance studio, horse arena and the beautiful home he shared with Miriam. The signature on checks written on an account at American National Bank did not match Alan’s. Eret said a handwriting expert would testify that those checks — made to either Miriam herself or her business, Dance Junction — were signed by Miriam using Alan’s name. She allegedly removed the check

stubs as well, so no checks appeared to be missing from the ledger. Friends, family members and business associates had trouble contacting Alan; Miriam was ready with excuses about why he couldn’t come to the phone. In the last few weeks of his life, some family members began demanding to speak to him. When Alan complained of feeling ill, Eret said, family members suspected the defendant had a hand in the deterioration of his health. After his death, friends and family members were quick to tell law enforcement authorities they believed he was being poisoned. Alan recovered, but a strange incident occurred in Delta in April 2008. Alan and Miriam were in Delta to

complete a business deal when someone stuffed rags into the gas tank of their car and set the rags on fire. The scene was directly from “No Country for Old Men,” a movie Alan and Miriam had watched three days previously, Eret alleged. Miriam had reportedly retrieved a pair of sandals from the trunk, then went in to use the restroom, claiming she felt ill. That’s when Alan realized smoke was pouring out of the back of his car. Employees later reported the “overwhelming” odor of lighter fluid in the bathroom. DPD officers investigated the incident, but no charges were filed. It’s now late May, early June, Eret continued. Alan has survived a car fire, he’s feeling healthy, but the

bank is sending out registered letters about the pending loans. “It’s coming to crunch time,” Eret said. “Miriam is going to be exposed.” She spent a considerable time describing Miriam’s movements the day before Alan’s death and the morning of the murder itself. The day before, they had planned to drive to Delta to pick up Alan’s granddaughters for horse riding lessons. When daughter Portia called her dad to find out when they’d pick up the kids, Miriam said the lesson had been cancelled because the horse was ill. Portia demanded to speak to her father; Miriam said he had gone to Montrose for an appointment but planned to stop in Delta on his way See Helmick, Page 3A

County joins list of entities with medical marijuana moratoriums By Hank Lohmeyer Staff Writer

As of two days ago, medical marijuana dispensaries planning to set up legally under state law will, for the next four and a half months, be illegal if they set up shop in the unincorporated areas of Delta County. The Board of County Commissioners on Monday adopted an emergency resolution placing a temporary moratorium on establishment of the dispensary facilities. The emergency resolution took effect immediately upon adoption. In adopting the resolution, the Delta County Commissioners have joined a growing list of local governments around Colorado and in the county calling a halt to the unregulated spread of medical marijuana distribution points. A Colorado Constitutional amendment approved by voters in 2000 provided for the statewide legalization of marijuana used for medical reasons. All marijuana remains illegal under federal law. But an announcement earlier this year that prosecu-

tion for marijuana offenses would not be a priority enforcement issue with federal authorities has led to the recent explosion of new medical marijuana dispensaries opening up shop all over the state. The BoCC voted 3-0 in favor of the temporary moratorium that will expire on March 31, 2010. Like other communities, the county wants time to study the 2000 voterapproved amendment and the sometimes vague and incomplete regulations of medical marijuana that have been established by the Colorado Department of Health and Environment (CDPHE) Some of those regulations are so open-ended that the CDPHE does not track, license, nor regulate medical marijuana dispensaries. The CDPHE states the situation on its website, “The Colorado Medical Marijuana amendment, statutes, and regulations are silent on the issue of dispensaries. While the (CDPHE Medical Marijuana) Registry is aware that a number of such businesses have been established across the state, we

do not have a formal relationship with them. “Please be aware: The Registry does not license dispensaries. The Registry does not have a list of dispensaries. There are no regulations regarding dispensaries. The Registry is unable to assist with complaints regarding dispensaries. The Registry has no information on how to establish/operate a dispensary. “There may be local ordinances that might impact the operation of a dispensary. Please contact local authorities for specific information.” Two of the county’s specific concerns were spelled out by county attorney Brad Kolman at the commissioners’ Nov. 16 meeting. The first one is that people who grow medical marijuana either for their own use or for supplying “patients” are not regulated. Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee said that local law enforcement agencies are aware of a number of locations where medical marijuana is being cultivated in Delta County now. See Moratorium, Page 3A

Downsizing police force would be a grave mistake Dear Editor: I have recently been informed that the Cedaredge Police Department is considering downsizing its force. I think that is an absolutely foolish notion. I understand that the “economy” may warrant cutbacks in all areas, but I think the police, ambulance, and fire departments should be a last resort. As you are aware, my family and I were involved in an incident in the Cedaredge area as reported in the DCI’s Nov. 11 issue. The quick response of the authorities (specifically the Delta County sheriff as we are outside city limits) was crucial to the incident not escalating to a more dangerous situation for the intruder or my family. I am extremely grateful to the men and women who serve us in this way on a daily basis, and I think that downsizing would be a grave mistake. David LeMaster Cedaredge

Obama has no regard for the U.S. Constitution Dear Editor: I read the letter asking if Obama supporters felt any remorse and should have expected that a published reply would refuse to answer the question in any manner other than Misters Renfrow and Marston did. I am not writing this in defense of President Bush, but I am in total awe that they can complain that Obama is being criticized after eight months in office when President Bush was under attack for more than eight years. Bush tax credits only help the wealthy? Guess again. The child tax credit and lower income tax brackets have benefited millions of American families with low and middle incomes. Lower capital gains tax? That has benefited millions more. The original question about voter remorse

with regard to Obama, is that we appear to have elected a man who has no use for individual liberty. He considers the Constitution a flawed document and his most frequent visitor to the White House (SEIU President Andy Stern) refers to the Constitution as a 223-year-old “problem.” He has surrounded himself with a shadow government of czars and appointees, several of whom are open admirers of Marx and Mao, yet does a rapid “backstroke” from his close associations with Jeremiah Wright, Willam Ayers and Rod Blagojevich. I agree that the banking crisis could and should have been averted with better regulation. I am not so sure that the stimulus “aka” government takeover is much of an answer. Delta County residents may be the benefi-

The renaissance of Delta Dear Editor: When I returned to Delta after an 11-year absence I took it upon myself to read all of the history books pertaining to Delta County and the people that made contributions for the good of the order. In a book titled “Grand Mesa Country,” by Abbott Fay, I found the enclosed story. How to Become an “All-America” City “Until recently, the city of Delta, Colorado, presented a picture of a small rural city in decline. Old sewer lagoons, an abandoned sugar beet factory full of lime dust, and deteriorating streets and sidewalks testified to the decay.” So read Delta’s application for designation as an All -America City. A local businessman added, “There was low selfesteem, and all the communities around had a dislike of Delta. The air smelled, the dust blew, the streets were terrible. The “recent time” was 1985, and only seven years later, Delta won a national competition for the All-America City award! What caused this great transformation? It’s debatable, but one factor has to be attributed to the idea of 81-year-old Gus Albert, a motel owner and a one-time chamber of commerce manager. He envisioned a pageant based on Delta’s history. In the summer of 1986, the play Thunder Mountain Lives Tonight! was first performed by volunteers. It attracted many tourists, but probably more

important was the excitement and pride it fostered among local area citizens. The pageant was performed five nights a week for the next 10 years, a total of 496, and the longest-running outdoor show in Colorado history. More than 160 volunteers took part in the productions. Before long, other ideas took form in the minds of the Deltans. Work was begun to create Confluence Park on the grounds of the abandoned sugar beet factory. The park has a 60-acre fishing lake, a wetlands nesting area that attracts bird watchers, and five miles of trails for walking, jogging and biking. An amphitheater was built for the pageant and other events. Antoine Robidoux’s Fort Uncompahgre dating from 1826 was faithfully restored and soon became a unique attraction of western Colorado tourism. Horse lovers developed “Horse Country Arena” for equine performances. Another dream began to materialize as funding was sought for a multi-million dollar recreation center, complete with a swimming pool, exercise rooms, and various meeting areas. When the Kuwait ambassador to the United States visited the town, he was so impressed that he pledged one hundred thousand dollars to the project in appreciation of the rescue of Kuwait in the Gulf War. He also pledged another $5,000 for Pioneer Town, a living history museum at nearby Cedaredge. Businesses were soon attracted to the vicinity of Confluence Park. By 1992, there were two major retail stores, two restaurants, and a feed mill centered on the storage silos of the former sugar factory. Altogether seventy new jobs were created. Delta’s downtown was transformed with trees, flowers and

ciaries of a nice road and many temporary jobs, but I don’t know how many of us will be grateful for the costs of any project being passed on to our grandchildren. I don’t know how many people are happy that those same children will grow up with a government that may, by then, have succeeded in dictating salaries, control health care decisions, mandate types of fuel to use, control our thermostats remotely and so on. Misters Marston and Renfrow go on to state they hope Mr. Fangman is not rooting for Obama to fail “like Rush Limbaugh.” Here is the link, read the transcript, get the context of the source material: www.rushlimbaugh. com/home/daily/site_011609/ content/01125113.guest.html.

The GMNC is a private nonprofit group of local skiers who groom the trails on Grand Mesa for classic and skate skiing. There is lots of new snow and GMNC is already running the grooming equipment. Remember, the nordic council receives no public funding and relies on donations from users to support its excellent maintenance of miles of ski trails open to the public free of charge. Please make a donation when you ski on Grand Mesa, and become a member of this great group. Your dollars go to more and better skiing on the mesa.

new storefronts. The community became a “City of Murals” when professional artists painted what have since become more than a dozen huge displays depicting Native Americans, Hispanic heritage, fruit-growing and other farming and ranching endeavors, as well as other historic events in Delta History. The elaborate art deco Egyptian movie theater was restored to its glory of the 1930s and designated as a historical preservation site. A new museum for the Delta County Historical Society was opened to display artifacts and promote local history. Saving the old bank building that now houses the Delta Chamber of Commerce, along with the museum came under the guidance of the Delta Urban Renewal Authority. Delta County schools developed the nation’s initial learning program for students using computers to solve problems. It attracted visiting educators from all over America and foreign nations. The program became a model for what is now an almost universal practice in American schools. Delta County students were also winning state academic championships. While there have been many hundreds of volunteers involved in all these projects, the imaginative city manager Steve Shutt has been acknowledged as the guiding force throughout the awakening. Thus in 1992, Delta, with a population of 3,800, became the smallest town to win the AllAmerica City Award. The AllAmerica City Award is given by the National Civic League annually to 10 cities in the United States. The award is the oldest community recognition program in the nation and recognizes communities whose citizens work together to identify and tackle community-wide challenges and achieve uncommon results. It is noteworthy that this was the second city in Thunder Mountain Country to attain that honor as Grand Junction had been designated three decades earlier. --I can say that I feel very fortunate and proud ... because I was part of the citizens group that helped Delta become an All-American City in the year 1992. It’s time, Delta, we need an awakening! Chris Miller Delta

Medical marijuana moratorium Law enforcement agencies seek ammunition for the war on drugs Continued from Page 1A

By Pat Sunderland Managing Editor

Law enforcement agencies in the Seventh Judicial District are gathering support for designation as a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, or HIDTA. Designation could bring additional resources, including funding, to the war against drugs. The Delta City Council has approved a resolution which will be forwarded, along with similar measures from other communities within the Seventh Judicial District, to Senator Michael Bennet. Senator Bennet will then take the request to the regional HIDTA director. In presenting the resolution to city council last week, DPD Chief Robert Thomas cited a heightened increase in illegal drug distribution, sales, use, manufacturing, trafficking and money laundering in Delta, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, Ouray and San Miguel counties. He said the Seventh Judicial District has identified Highways 50 and 92 within the city as major corridors for illegal drug transport and distribution. Jim Fuller, the CBI agent in charge of the Seventh Judicial District Drug Task Force, also addressed the council. He explained that the drug task force recently saw a significant source of funding cut when the Bryne law enforcement assistance grants were redirected to drug treatment and education. Those funds were previously a significant source of revenue for narcotics enforcement by rural law enforcement agencies. If HIDTA designation is

obtained, Fuller said, federal monies will be provided for overhead, vehicles, equipment, training and overtime for the task force’s five investigators. In addition, local law enforcement agencies will begin working with the DEA, FBI and state investigators to develop strategies for successfully infiltrating drug trafficking organizations. In the last 10 months, Fuller said, the Seventh Judicial District Drug Task Force has seized about 30 pounds of cocaine, 10 pounds of methamphetamine and several hundred marijuana plants. “Just to keep our success continuing, we need those monies,” he told city council. Significant seizures in Telluride, Grand Junction and Delta are also the result of a change in focus, he said. When he joined the drug task force about two years ago, the emphasis was primarily street level enforcement — the arrest and prosecution of individuals who used drugs as well as those who distributed narcotics, generally to support their own habits. Now the drug task force is targeting the groups responsible for the importation and distribution of methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana along the Western

Slope. Because the Seventh Judicial District encompasses about 10,000 square miles, that’s a big job, Fuller said. This area is also unique because it’s about 11 hours from the southwest border. “A lot of the drug traffickers have done the math and determined it’s much easier to go directly to the border, purchase their narcotics and cut out the middle man like you would have in the Denver metro area,” Fuller said. “Local law enforcement is overwhelmed. Staffing has always been an issue. We five individuals are the only individuals responsible for proactive narcotics and fugitive apprehension in the region.” With support from the federal government, the Seventh Judicial District Drug Task Force will be able to devote more time, more labor, and more resources toward identifying the people who are responsible for bringing the narcotics in to our communities. The counties of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Denver, Douglas, Eagle, El Paso, Garfield, Grand, Jefferson, La Plata, Larimer, Mesa, Moffat, Pueblo, Routt and Weld counties have already received designation as HIDTA areas.

The county’s second concern with medical marijuana dispensaries that are not designated as “primary caregivers” for approved medical marijuana patients. In other words, if such dispensaries are not designated as primary caregivers for specific approved patients, then what are they dispensing and to whom? Closely related to those two county concerns is another one that will be getting a lot of attention: Are the county’s Specific Development Regulations sufficient as currently written to regulate medical marijuana dispensaries and medical marijuana growers as businesses? If dispensaries are classified as home-based businesses then they are exempt from county Specific Development Regulation. If medical marijuana growers are classified as agriculture operations they too would be exempt. The overall intent of the county resolution is to allow time “to consider the adoption of appropriate county regulations” with respect to medical marijuana dispensaries. The resolution directs the sheriff to work in concert with the county attorney and staff to review the legal authority available for regulating medical marijuana distribution operations.

back to Whitewater. Eret said testimony would prove that Alan was actually outside working on his property when Bob Isom stopped by. They made arrangements to play golf, an appointment Alan later cancelled because he said he was taking his granddaughter to her riding lesson. When Alan didn’t show up in Delta, Portia called again. No, Miriam said, she couldn’t speak to her father — he’d stopped at the Elks Lodge, had too much to drink and was now in bed. Portia called her husband Josh, who was staying in the lower part of the Whitewater home during the week, to shorten his commute to work. Josh told Portia Alan was not in bed — he was down at the stable with Miriam feeding the horses. Other witnesses will further illustrate discrepancies in Miriam’s account, Eret said. On the morning of Alan’s death, Miriam left their home in Whitewater to run errands. Eret outlined Miriam’s movements from Orchard Mesa Market, to Wal-Mart on North Avenue, to the Safeway on Horizon Drive, and back to Orchard Mesa. From the restaurant where she and Alan reportedly planned to meet for lunch, she left a message on Alan’s cell phone, asking where he was, before heading back home. She called dispatch at 11:47 a.m. to report she’d found

her husband on the floor. Six days later, Eret said, Miriam called Alan’s insurance agent asking about a $25,000 life insurance payout. The agent said the premiums hadn’t been paid, so there were no benefits. Later in June, she reportedly started selling off the horses, an ATV and other possessions. By July she was “hightailing” it out of town, Eret said. In Florida she began using the identity of Sharon Helmick, Alan’s first wife, and by November 2008 had created an Internet dating profile under that name. Deputy public defender Jody McGuirk told jurors that Miriam herself would testify as to why she left the state. With no means of financial support and no support within the community, Miriam headed for Florida where family members lived. McGuirk said law enforcement ignored other leads believed she was guilty from day one. And while family members contend that Alan was being poisoned, nothing in the autopsy report supports that accusation. Alan was sick because he suffered from serious heart disease, she said. Because she wanted so desperately for law enforcement to start looking for the person who

had killed her husband, Miriam came up with a “horrible idea,” McGuirk said. She purchased a card, penned a threatening note, and left it on the doorstep of her home. When she “found” the card, she turned it over to her attorney who in turn handed it to law enforcement authorities. Through the manufacturer, prosecutors traced the card to several stores in Grand Junction and ultimately to the City Market on Orchard Mesa, where video shows Miriam picking out the card and paying for it at a selfserve kiosk. The presumption of guilt caused errors in judgment, from law enforcement, from prosecution and from Miriam Helmick herself, McGuirk said. She urged the jurors to turn the case around and look at it with the presumption of innocence. If Miriam were interested in collecting life insurance proceeds upon Alan’s death, McGuirk pointed out, she would certainly have made sure the premiums were paid. A prenuptial agreement was also found months after Alan’s death. Miriam could have hidden or destroyed that document, McGuirk said.

Declining revenues drive county budget moves By Hank Lohmeyer Staff Writer

In the face of declining revenue streams, county administrators, department heads and employees have wrestled 2009’s projected big budget deficits into submission. Delta County must by law have a balanced budget each year. Excess spending over available revenues is covered by spending from cash held in reserve. Cuts have been made in the county General Fund and Road and Bridge Fund that decreased spending from savings this year. The projected $1.24 million General Fund shortfall has been trimmed to an estimated $302,142, and the Road and Bridge Fund’s excess spending over revenues, first estimated at $1.16 million, will end the year closer to $334,925. But, for 2010, the county’s budget story will be more of the same as administrators again face looming shortfalls in the two biggest budget funds. Department budget requests in the Gen-

eral Fund have come in at $1.16 million over projected revenues. Road and Bridge spending estimates are at $920,358 over anticipated revenues. The administration’s budget proposal to the Board of County Commissioners has trimmed those numbers some. Nevertheless, the BoCC is looking now at trying to stanch the flow of cash from its reserves and to spread the losses evenly over the next five years. County administrator Susan Hansen said that the BoCC “is focused on keeping county expenses within income.” But if projections of a seven percent decline in General Fund revenues holds true for 2010, the county will still need to cut $239,262 from General Fund spending just to hold reserves drawdown to $706,037. The county is expecting a five percent drop in sales tax revenue this year, and hopes are they will decline only another three percent in 2010. Three big hits the General

Fund revenues are expected to take next year are a 40 percent drop in mineral severance tax and minerals leasing payments, and a drastic drop from interest earned on cash reserves. The three line item revenue sources together will decline from $848,445 this year to $352,222 next year. The situation in another major county budget fund, Road and Bridge, is similar, though the numbers are smaller. One major plus for the financial picture as it enters the second straight year of revenue shortfalls is the fact that Delta County is “debt free.” The county’s only debt, say administrators, is an $8,001 obligation for a fairgrounds tractor that will be paid off this year. The county has ample reserves; almost $2.6 million estimated in the General Fund at the end of this year. There is enough to carry it through at least a temporary loss of revenue from Bowie Resources — the county’s largest property tax account that has not paid some $1.5 million in taxes

Volunteers are anxious to move forward with arena improvements Horse Country Arena volunteers Jon and Sara Rapp met recently with City of Delta parks director Paul Suppes and parks supervisor Tony Bohling to plan the removal of dead trees and additional clean-up at the arena. The Rapps have volunteered to saw down trees designated by city staff. According to Bohling the trees deteriorated from seepage of salt in underground water from Confluence Lake. Sara Rapp has reported a number of phone calls from community members coming forward to help with the revitalization of the arena. She has started to remove debris from the horse trails, also. Volunteer organization is awaiting approval of such action from the city council. Arena use had waned but is being revisited by the city due to increased activity and stall rentals. In the meantime, the Horse Country Arena Advisory Committee has met regularly since its appearance before the City Council in September. At that time Mayor Mary Cooper announced that the council would leave the arena open for another year. She added that they would like to help with the efforts of the committee. Three tenants are now boarding horses in the stalls and corrals at the site. Recent new boarder Sheryl Adams said, “I have lived in Delta for 13 years and did not know the arena was here. I love it.” Adams has not only brought her own horses but two Paso Finos belonging to a friend who is ill and cannot take care of them. She is interested in helping with youth activities. A group representing the advisory committee including Jo-an Barnett, Chris Miller and Adams

Lions to host community Christmas party A community Christmas dinner sponsored by the Delta Lions Club is rapidly approaching.

met last week with interim city manager Glen Black to discuss issues that could be remedied at the facility. Barnett presented the original plan designed by the Department of Local Affairs showing a design for additional stalls and a covered arena. According to Barnett, “There have been a number of inquiries about use of the Round Up Club. However, the stands are in need of major renovation and the ground is rocky, causing problems with performance. The Horse Country Arena ground was originally established with a liner, prohibiting the emergence of rocks. Further, the Round Up Club is a private facility with rental fees that are not affordable to some groups.” The Horse Country Advisory Group has submitted a letter to Black requesting a work session with council. In the letter a reiteration of economic impact figures is stated as well as data showing that the horse industry encompasses users from all economic strata. It continues with a list of measures the committee would like to see implemented to make the arena more user friendly, most of which could be performed with little cost to the city and assistance by volunteers. The committee is proposing an extensive calendar of events including four schooling shows in the spring, a full schedule of barrel racing competitions, a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Horse Country Arena, performances of Thunder Mountain Lives (the original production was held in an arena), the kickoff celebration of the 75th anniversary of Deltarado Days, a showdeo combination of rodeo and horse show events as tourist attractions. Horse Country Arena tenant Jose Hernandez has announced hopes to hold a Charros Rodeo for Cinco de Mayo as well as match horse races in the ‘dobies. Linda Tibbetts, a barrel race promoter, is working to improve the surface of the arena so it is more appropriate to competition this summer. Three barrel racing groups practice and hold competitions at the arena. Barrel racers Teresa Neuberger and Shannon Gray have been active in the arena reopening. Former retail coordinators for the City of Delta Urban Renewal Authority Chris Miller and Jo-an Barnett are investigating potential funding from grants and

other sources. Jami Taylor, 4-H leader and liaison to the committee, is organizing a Friends of Horse Country Arena entry for the Parade of Lights. Weather permitting, Taylor anticipates a large turnout of horsemen for the parade. For further information, call 874-6304 or 874-3503.

owing this year. County government isn’t the only taxing entity likely to feel a pinch from Bowie’s current financial problems. Half of Bowie’s property tax bill, about $722,000 of the outstanding amount, are for Delta County Joint School District. County government comes in second with a $472,000 share of the overdue amount. Other local taxing districts that Bowie pays into are Delta County Memorial Hospital District; Paonia Mosquito Control District; North Fork Pool, Park and Recreation District; North Fork Water Conservancy District; Delta County Public Library District; Delta County Fire District #2; Paonia Cemetery District; and the Colorado River Water Conservation District. County treasurer Jim Ventrello gave an update on the Bowie account during a Nov. 12 budget meeting. The company is trying to renegotiate or refinance a large note held by G.E. Capital. In the event G.E. decides to foreclose on the note, Ventrello said, it is likely they would pay off the local taxes in order to protect the assets secured by the note. He said that it could easily be a year or more before the county sees its tax money under that scenario. County attorney Brad Kolman asked about the possibility of bankruptcy clearing some of the company’s tax liability. Ventrello replied that local tax entities usually get some preferential treatment in bankruptcy distributions, but added it is no guarantee that all the county’s tax bill would be paid in that event.

Hey, John Salazar Back in 1990, the Government seized the Mustang Ranch brothel in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it. They failed and it closed. Now, we are trusting the economy of our country, our banking system, our auto industry and, if you have your way, our health plans to the same nit-wits who couldn’t make money running a house of ill repute and selling whiskey?

Foreclosure prevention assistance fair planned

All Glass Station celebrates first anniversary in business By Hank Lohmeyer Staff Writer

There is no economic downturn in sight for the enthusiastic and positive owners of All Glass Station in Delta. Marce (pronounced mar-SAY) and Noelle Montano last week celebrated the first anniversary of the business they opened as the local economy began slowing down. But their business is thriving now, and they took the opportunity to share good fortune with new and existing customers during an open house held Friday, Nov. 13, at the business at 717 Highway 50 in North Delta. Many of the couple’s existing customers, and plenty of new ones stopped in for a free windshield chip repair the day of the open house event. The Montanos sent out invitations, provided cake and snacks, and welcomed everyone who stopped in to help celebrate the business success during its first year. Marce has been in the glass business since he was a youngster learning the trade from his grandfather. Though just starting out in his own business, Marce already has over 20 years of experience in every phase of glass including auto, residential and commercial. Marce decided to make a smart move and purchase the large Quonset hut-style building that is home to All Glass Station. The building’s previous owner had moved to a new location and the building was sitting empty. Real estate was slowing down and the owner dropped the price on the building several times until it became just too good a deal to pass up.

Marce installed a complete commercial entry and front on the building that gives it a real professional look and provides a great testimony to his skills. The front office portion of the building was remodeled to provide a pleasant and provisional looking showroom for customers who are shopping for new windows for their homes or just passing a little time while their autos are attended to professionally in the shop. Part of the showroom is devoted to displays for the new, energy efficient, vinyl-clad low-e residential windows that are very popular now. All Glass Station can provide the windows and installation for their customers, and there is federal 30-percent tax credit on the cost.

The energy efficient windows are a big part of All Glass Station’s growing business right now because of the federal subsidy. The increasingly busy business has one other employee besides Noelle and Marce. Another opening may come up if business stays strong, Noelle said. Noelle takes care of business in the front office, and Marce makes sure things keep running smoothly in the shop and with the jobs on-site. The couple has family roots in Montrose, but they are really happy to be in business in Delta now. All Glass Station serves the entire Delta County area including Surface Creek and the North Fork.

Struggling with financial hardship? Can’t make your house payments? Help is available at the Western Colorado Foreclosure Prevention Assistance Fair Saturday, Nov. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Educational presentations, community resources, lenders and HUD approved housing counseling will be offered at Canyon View Vineyard Church, 736 24 1/2 Road in Grand Junction. To meet with a lender or counselor, bring documentation of income, your most recent tax return, three months of bank statements, a monthly household expense budget, copy of loan closing documents, vertification of current homeowners insurance, most recent mortgage statement (or loan number, amount past due, lender name and loan balance), and any legal correspondence or notices received.

New owners of Electric Mountain Lodge seek transfer of liquor license By Hank Lohmeyer Staff Writer

Want to advertise in the DCI? Contact one of our ad reps at 874-4421.

New owners of the Electric Mountain Lodge north of Paonia got the county’s approval for a temporary transfer of ownership liquor license during the BoCC meeting on Nov. 2. The sale of the business was completed about two weeks ago following “100 days of verifying title and dealing with other legal issues,” co-owner Tod Welch told the commissioners. Welch said that the previous owners were facing foreclosure. Welch and his partners are in the excavation business in the Roaring Fork Valley and will continue in those enterprises.

Professional managers have been hired to run the lodge. Some remodeling work and infrastructure improvements have been completed, Welch said. During the Nov. 2 meeting, the commissioners also visited with Mike Martin of the Gintner’s Grove subdivision north of Cedaredge. The neighborhood is faced with replacement of an expensive domestic water pipeline. Martin said the 4,000 feet of water line will cost about $350,000. The neighbors are hoping to get some funding assistance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The commis-

sioners offered suggestions on setting up a special improvements district for the neighbors to tax themselves for the needed improvements. Commissioners appointed Pat Means of Cedaredge to fill a vacancy on the County Library Board representing Cedaredge. Means is currently on the board serving as an at-large representative, a post she will give up in taking the Cedaredge slot. Finally, the BoCC approved a bid of $100,957 for paving work at Blake Field and North Fork Valley Airport. Grant funding will pay for 80 percent of the work.

A tribute to veterans Delta Middle School hosted a Veterans Day assembly which not only honored the men and women who have served our country, but presented the opportunity to educate DMS students on the importance of the holiday. Presentation of the colors, a flag-folding ceremony conducted by the Delta High School JROTC, musical presentations by the seventh and eighth grade bands, the reading of essays submitted for a contest sponsored by the VFW, and an address from Robert Griffin made the Nov. 11 observance meaningful for all attending. Griffin, a sixth grade geography teacher at DMS, shared some of his experiences as a soldier in the U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard. His vivid descriptions brought home the sacrifices made by soldiers past and present. Thank you notes and posters like the one pictured below were presented to the veterans in the audience before they exited the auditorium to a standing ovation.

Deadline for Bowie Mine property taxes approaches By Kathy Browning Staff Writer

After facing a tough year of geologic and economic factors, Bowie Resources has told Delta County treasurer Jim Ventrello their property taxes should be paid by the first week of December. Bowie Resources owes approximately $1.5 million to the county. “My understanding is they are working on closing a deal for some additional financing at this point in time,” Ventrello said. “The last word I got is that perhaps the first week in December, we will be able to collect our taxes. They did pay some. Their cash flow is really, really tight right now. They had all those problems with the mine. The Tennessee Valley Authority is one of their main contracts and they are not selling as much power as they used to because there’s nobody building things. They are selling residential power but they are not selling any industrial power. And so, until the economy turns around and the factories start staying open more and producing more, there won’t be as much demand for power thus not as much demand for coal. It just kinds of snowballs. It’s some of this on the national economy and some of it is on some geologic

issues within the mine itself. Most of those problems have been resolved, as I understand.” The county treasurer published the delinquent tax notices just last week. “We tried to go as long as we could without making it a big public thing, in trying to work with them so they could get their financing,” Ventrello said. “The commissioners and myself were really concerned about it. We don’t want people to panic because they are advertised in the paper for delinquent taxes, but we also have statutory deadlines so that’s where we are at ... We are set up for a special sale Dec. 11 if they haven’t paid for them by then. And all that means is the taxes will be sold to an investor taking the position of the taxing entities.” Ventrello explained it takes three years after the sale before anyone could apply for a deed. Concerns that if Bowie can’t pay its taxes it will adversely impact other property taxes are discounted by Ventrello. “That is not going to impact us on the larger scale of things locally,” he shared. Due to the Gallagher Amendment, “percentages are figured on a statewide basis and adjusted on a statewide basis not on a per county basis.”

Paonia moratorium decision on hold

Hotchkiss enacts moratorium on medicinal marijuana dispensaries By Kathy Browning Staff Writer

What a difference two days make. The Paonia Town Council met on Tuesday, Nov. 10 with the trustees voting to table a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries within town limits. They had two ordinances before them, one with a sunset clause and one without. But, with town attorney Jim Briscoe absent, and even though they had a lengthy fact sheet from the Colorado Municipal League (CML), the Paonia trustees decided to wait at least two more weeks to make a decision. Weber wondered if the town had the right to have a moratorium when voters had approved a constitutional amendment about permitting use of marijuana for medical conditions. Those conditions include cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS posi-

Yanish murder solved after 28 years By Kathy Browning Staff Writer

When a jogger in Golden stumbled upon a man’s lifeless body near the Coors Brewery in 1981, no one would have imagined it would take 28 years to solve the homicide. The 29-yearold Paonia man, a miner with Hawk’s Nest Mine, Anthony Yanish, had been shot to death. Last Tuesday, Nov. 10 Christopher Sorensen, 57, turned himself in to authorities in Grand Junction after an arrest warrant had been issued. He is charged with the first degree murder of Yanish, and is being held in Jefferson County Jail with no bond. Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Unit led by Investigator Cheryl Moore began re-investigating the 1981 murder earlier this year. According to Paonia Police Chief Scott Leon, the investigators came back to the area twice in recent months. “It’s amazing how cases like that can be resolved over a long period of time,” Leon said. “I think it’s great that someone will face justice.” Jacki Kelley, public information director for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, said a tip lead the investigation in a new direction, “and proved to be very valuable.” Kelley added, “You just never know when the right tip comes along. Loyalties and alliances change over years. People who are unwilling to report what they know immediately after the fact, over the years might come

forward. People certainly change. Evidence collection certainly has changed. Technology and DNA have changed. There are so many good reasons that we keep these homicide cases open forever.” While the arrest warrant and affidavits are sealed in this case, the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office would disclose that Yanish’s body was discovered around noon on March 10, 1981 adjacent to the roadway in the 4500 block of Easley Road. Yanish was last seen in Glenwood Springs the day before. He was a coal miner at Hawk’s Nest Mine and had a few days off due to a work stoppage protesting black lung disease. He and a friend spent March 9 between Paonia and Glenwood Springs. When his friend returned to Paonia, Yanish decided to stay behind. His body was found the next day in Golden. “After months of tenacious investigation, the cold case investigator was able to uncov-

er many previously undisclosed details about the homicide, resulting in the arrest of Christopher Sorensen,” Kelley said. Sorensen and Yanish were acquainted. “Although many new details about this case cannot be shared, family members and sheriff’s investigators are pleased to bring closure and justice to this 28-yearold case.” Kelley shared, “We never close murder cases ever. We always remain hopeful. If we are not able to solve a murder case immediately, there is still a lot of hope for those cases. This is a beautiful example of how you can still solve the homicide 28 years after the fact.” Cheryl Moore has solved 12 cold cases for the Jefferson County Sheriff. “We are so very proud of her.” She has cases that go back to the 1950s. “She’s passionate about what she does. Solving a 28-year-old case absolutely feeds that fire in her.”

tive, cachexia, severe pain, severe nausea, seizures, including those that are characteristic of epilepsy, or persistent muscle spasms, including those that are characteristic of multiple sclerosis. Amendment 20, a citizen initiated amendment, passed with 54 percent of the vote in the 2000 election. It became legal for a patient or a primary caregiver who has been issued a Medical Marijuana Registry identification card to possess up to two ounces of marijuana and not more than six marijuana plants. The amendment protects a patient, the patient’s caregiver and doctors from prosecution “for the acquisition, possession, production, use or transportation of marijuana and related paraphernalia under certain circumstances. On Feb. 25 of this year, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder stated the Drug Enforcement Administration “would no longer raid dispensaries that are legally established under state law.” There are 14 states that have medical marijuana laws. According to town clerk Barbara Peterson, Paonia has no current regulations regarding the dispensaries. Mayor Schwieterman noted that no business license is required in town. Trustee Gretchen King questions whether Paonia Hydro, a proposed medical marijuana dispensary on Grand Avenue, would be grandfathered in, since it’s owner, George Barker, already has a state license for the business and a trademark. He is prepared to pay the required $1 million liability bond. Barker spoke at length at the council meeting including about how marijuana brownies had helped him with his medical condition. He had nearly died after surgery. He was in bed for two weeks and unable to eat. He had three bites of the brownie, and it was the first meal he could eat and keep down. He believes medical marijuana is a good alternative to prescription pain pills. Barker has been a business owner in Paonia for 43 years. He owns Paonia Liquors. King said that Barker was clearly an upstanding business owner, but not everyone opening a dispensary may be. The town may need regulations. The CML fact sheet said many municipalities were enacting a moratorium or enacting regulations regarding the dispensaries. There were a number of people

who spoke at the council meeting making it a lively and long session. Weber made a motion to table the ordinance to receive further legal consultation. Lucien Pevec seconded. The motion carried with the votes of Weber, King and Pevec. Trustee Scott Morley voted against the motion. Then on Thursday, Nov. 12, the Hotchkiss Town Council had the same two moratorium ordinances before them to consider along with another which would establish regulations of how many feet a dispensary would have to be from schools and churches. Jay Ziegler addressed the council about his desire to have an alternative cancer treatment center in Hotchkiss which would include medical marijuana. His business would be called, Western Slope Alternatives. He was interested in purchasing the doublewide at 360 West Bridge Street for the treatment facility. Town attorney Jim Briscoe has monitored hundred’s of e-mails from community lawyers. He said most wanted to slow down the process of the dispensaries opening in their communities until the state legislature decides on regulations. One option under consideration is for the State of Colorado to grow and sell the medical marijuana. Another consideration is which agency will enforce the regulations once they are written. Will it be the Department of Revenue, the Department of Health or

a pharmaceutical agency? Hotchkiss and Paonia are statutory towns and are limited in their own authority to set up a licensing procedure. Briscoe said something like the state liquor license procedure would be the way to handle the issue. His opinion is that this is a state concern not a local community concern. “It makes sense to have a similar law throughout the state,” Briscoe stated. He hopes an agency of the state will develop the regulations and have oversight of the dispensaries. Trustee Tom Wills noted that any business not listed in the newly approved zoning ordinance was excluded and would require a special review to mitigate impacts. He stated the “most thoughtful thing to do is have a moratorium” on the dispensaries for 200 days. This would allow the state legislature time to develop their regulations, time for local citizens to comment and the trustees time to consider and write a reasonable ordinance. Trustee George Brauneis said that Ziegler’s proposal was as a true caregiver with a holistic program. “This is more than a dispensary,” Brauneis said. “I hate to turn away business.” Wills made the motion to enact an emergency moratorium ordinance on medical marijuana dispensaries for 200 days. Wendell Koontz seconded. Brauneis voted against. Wills, Koontz, Gerald Pearson and Sheila Maki voted for the moratorium and it carried.

Chad Campbell wants educational field trips for students to continue By Kathy Browning Staff Writer

Newly elected to the Delta County School Board, Chad Campbell spoke to the Rotary Club of Paonia on Nov. 12 and explained what he hopes to accomplish in his first term. “Everybody is in financial hardship,” Campbell said. “A lot of little, bitty changes can lead to big things.” As he attended school board meetings, Campbell heard one suggestion to cut costs involved cutting money for student field trips. Campbell disagrees. He believes strongly that educational field trips, like one to

Mesa Verde, are good and necessary. “Kids get so much from Mesa Verde,” he said. However, in his opinion, a trip to Grand Junction for swimming is not educational, and could be eliminated. While the school board was talking about cutting field trips for students, they were approving a four-day conference held at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs for school board members. The cost of the hotel, meals and transportation to the Colorado Association of School Board Officials was included. “Is this not a very expensive adult field trip?” asked Campbell.

He decided to take a stand immediately. “We don’t need to spend this money.” He’s sure the training is a PowerPoint presentation which could be fed live to school board members, and save $10,000 for those four days. “That $10,000 would go a long ways for a small school,” Campbell concluded. He voiced support for sports and sporting trips for competition with other schools. However, he takes issue with local teams having to travel twice to Vail for two different schools there. He would like to see consolidation of sporting events. “They could play two games in one day. For tournaments they play four games in one day,” he commented.

42-passenger school buses transporting nine kids. There are school buses which hold a maximum of 11 passengers. “They are bound to be cheaper to run,” Campbell said. He would like a regulation track at Paonia High School so the students would not have to be bussed to Hotchkiss.

Hotchkiss UMW kicks off annual Heifer Project Saturday By Kathy Browning Staff Writer

Check out two booths at the Hotchkiss Holiday Arts Crafts and Business Fair that are hosted by the Hotchkiss United Methodist Women (UMW). The first booth is a table of baked goods in the canteen at Memorial Hall. The second table is in the main ballroom. It will be filled with information, catalogs and cards about Heifer International. The fair begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, and runs into late that afternoon. With the generous support of the community, Hotchkiss UMW has raised over $15,000 in the

Wee Care Center is closing By Kathy Browning Staff Writer

With each of the elementary schools in the North Fork now having pre-schools, the Wee Care Center in Hotchkiss no longer has enough children to stay open. The highly rated center had also lost day care attendance due mainly to economic reasons. Parents were unable to afford day care. The Wee Care Center will close its doors for good on Thursday, Nov. 19.

last four years. Every penny has been sent to Heifer International which has a unique program of giving livestock — cows, water buffalo, llamas, ducks, chickens, geese, sheep, goats, rabbits, pigs, honeybees and even tree seedlings — to families in poverty. The recipient receives training on how to care for the livestock, and agrees to give the first offspring to another family in their area, thereby multiplying the gift. Heifer International is in its 65th year of providing this help to people in the United States and around the world. According to their latest gift catalog, last year more than 191,000 families received gifts of animals, training and “Passing on the Gift.” Members of 280,000 more families were trained in sustainable farming techniques and other specialized education. Yet another 539,000 families received “significant benefits directly.” “By giving families in need a hand-up, not just a hand-out, we can empower them to turn a life of hunger and poverty into one of self-reliance and independence,” writes Jo Luck, Heifer International president and CEO. “With the gifts of livestock and training, we help families improve their nutrition and generate income in sustainable ways. “We refer to these animals as living loans because in exchange for receiving their animal and training in its care, each family agrees to give one of its animal’s offspring to another family in need.”

Rather than sending a material gift this year to friends and family, why not send them a gift card, available from the Hotchkiss UMW this Saturday, to let them know you have given a gift of self-reliance in their name to help a struggling family? Stop by and see their booth this Saturday or call 872-3540 for more information. UMW’s fund raiser for Heifer International will continue throughout December.

Surveys hit mail this week By Kathy Browning Staff Writer

A random survey concerning the North Fork Pool, Park and Recreation District Master Plan will be arriving in the mail this week. Esther Koontz of the district asks people to fill the survey out as soon as possible and return it in the postage paid envelope provided. The results are confidential. The district just finished public hearings in Hotchkiss, Crawford and Paonia. This survey will add to the results in helping prepare a master plan.

Additional showings scheduled for ‘Split Estate’ By Kathy Browning Staff Writer

When TEDX (The Endocrine Disruption Exchange) hosted a free screening of “Split Estate” on Nov. 7 at the Paradise Theater, it was a packed house. Among the viewers of the film were Delta County Commissioners Olen Lund and Bruce Hovde. Theo Colborn, environmental health analyst and president of TEDX, is featured in the film about natural gas development in Garfield County and some of its negative impacts on residents. The natural gas industry is exempt from the Clean Water Act and other environmental laws. Colborn was present at the showing and answered a number of questions from the audience. Perhaps not expecting to have to answer questions were the two commissioners. One woman asked them, “Are you going to let this happen to our community?” She was referring to the proposal from Wells Gulch Evap Inc., which would have a solid waste disposal facility on Wells Gulch Road in western Delta County.

Water from oil and gas drilling would be treated. Oil would be separated from the water and stored in holding tanks for sale. The remaining water would be pumped into seven holding ponds for a evaporation treatment. A similar facility in Garfield County has been closed. “How do we respond to that? That’s like Mom and apple pie,” Olen Lund answered. “I don’t understand how we can answer that question. That’s why we’re here to learn what’s going on. Basically we are not here to make a proposal on anything. We are here to learn.” Bruce Hovde explained, “The process that is going on now the application by the company is before the state. The state will make a public comment period of 30 days. They will not be having a hearing, but there will be a public comment process. When that process starts, we will put it on the county website. We will also put out press releases. We will let WSERC [Western Slope Environmental Resource Council] and other interested parties

know that this public comment process is in effect. After that, once that is over, we will go through our procedures. So, we are a long way away from a decision. As Olen said, we are trying to learn and prepare.” Because of the interest the film generated and requests for additional showings, there will be a free showing of “Split Estate” Thursday, Nov. 19, at 7:30 p.m. at the Paradise Theater in downtown Paonia. Then on Tuesday, Nov. 24, at 7:30 p.m., the film will be shown free of charge at the Delta Center for the Performing Arts at 822 Grand. Also of interest, are two videos of Theo Colborn lectures.

Hotchkiss chamber awards Business and Citizen of the Year By Kathy Browning Staff Writer

Hotchkiss Chamber of Commerce members last Friday, Nov. 13 attended an awards presentation at the Creamery Arts Center in downtown Hotchkiss. Tom Wills announced the honorees. Mike and Kathy Shoemaker were recognized for their Weekender Sports as Business of the Year. They have been in business for 24 years. Wills complimented the couple, who were not present, with setting “an outstanding example of how to build and grow a successful small town business. When customers talk about Weekender Sports they always mention two things: quality and service.” Nathan Sponseller was the Citizen of the Year. He is the first person to be recognized by the chamber who does not live in

Hotchkiss, but he does work for First State Bank of Hotchkiss. He has served in the Hotchkiss Chamber of Commerce for 15 years and has served at one time or another in every officer position including as president for several years. Tom Wills told the crowd at the Creamery, “[Nathan] has organized the volunteers for events too numerous to mention them all including the Colorado Grand, the Chamber’s part in the Dog Trials, the Bluegrass Festival and about a zillion other things including several months in early 2009 being the one person who was behind making the first Denver Post Ride the Rockies stop in Hotchkiss an amazing success.” Sponseller was one of the founders of the North Fork Merchant Herald.

Much has been accomplished in eight months at the new Paonia Library By Kathy Browning Staff Writer

The librarians and patrons of the Paonia Public Library have been in their new building for eight months. They moved to the new location on Samuel Wade Road on March 16. The grand opening was on April 25. “We love it. We are really excited,” Myrna Westerman, library manager, said. “It’s exactly what we wanted. The children’s area is so much bigger and so much nicer. We get a lot of comments from parents.” People are hearing about the free meeting room and scheduling is picking up. “We’re doing a lot more programming ourselves because we now have a place to hold programs,” Westerman said. Those programs include poetry readings, author visits, movies for kids and in October a month dedicated with events and activities in honor of Edgar Allan Poe. They are even talking about having a dance in the parking lot next summer. Paving the parking lot was completed last month. Their new building is 2-1/2 times the size of the old building on Grand Avenue. There is

double the shelf space. The circulation area is double over the old library on Grand Avenue. “We feel busier.” Bins with children’s books allow the kids to look at the covers not just the spines. The bin’s are kid-friendly, being just the right height. The kid’s computer section is used all the time. Part of the money from the Paonia United Methodist Women’s Bazaar will go to purchase another computer for the kids.

The teens have a nice area dedicated to them and including a study room. It’s a great place for the teens to hang out and read. The teens chose the theme for a mural in the study room. They painted it with finishing touches added by local artist Seth Weber. The teens also chose the bean bag chairs. Merrily Talbott is the new teen librarian. Teen Night is the first Thursday of every month at 6 p.m. Talbott plans programs and works with teachers

Community service is part of the job for student firefighters By Kami Collins Staff Writer

While some high school kids are at practice, hanging out with friends, or even taking a test, three students at Hotchkiss High School are going above and beyond the normal school day by volunteering their service to the Hotchkiss Fire District and the community. Ryan Violett, a junior, has been on the fire crew about a year. His father, Devin, has been a firefighter for over 20 years. “I always wanted to be a firefighter,” Ryan said. He loves working with his dad. “He teaches me a lot of stuff that I wouldn’t know if he wasn’t there,” he said. Levi McKee, a junior, also works closely with his father, West, on the crew. “It gives me something to look forward to,” he said of their working relationship. He’s been on the crew for about two years, and was one of the first high schoolers to volunteer his service. Sophomore Aaron Hudson, having been on the crew only two months, is still in training and is considered a cadet. On calls, he’s assigned to one of the higher ups. “I do whatever they tell me to do,” he said. The cadet program in use in Hotchkiss was modeled after other cadet programs in the state and nation, fire chief Doug Fritz said. Aaron joined the department after watching his two friends put their time in. Even though they’re still fairly new at the firefighting gig, the three have seen some fires that have stuck with them. Ryan remembers a wildfire on Redlands Mesa last summer where flames shot nearly 75 feet over a home. “It was pretty amazing to see,” he said. Levi remembers a huge fire

last October. After the fire made a big run, he wound up on the front line of action. “I ended up being right in front, right in the middle of everything,” he said. “You don’t really know what kind of power a fire has until you’re looking up at 75-foot flames thinking, ‘Wow, what am I going to do to stop this beast?’ ” He knew some of the families who lived in the area of that fire, a fact he was aware of as he fought the fire. But thankfully, none of the three have had to rescue friends or family on a call. The three don’t receive any school credit for their volunteerism; they’ve simply made an early step into giving back to the community. “I’m really glad I can do it,” Levi said. “It’s a privilege to be in such an organization, and it’s a great thing they allow us to be a part of it.” “Levi has excelled at all we have asked him to do,” Chief Fritz said. “We actually had to buy him an orange helmet so we could easily identify him when he’s in his gear. You can’t tell Levi apart from the other fire-

fighters, and we’re trying hard not to let the cadets get in too deep. They are just kids, after all.” The staff of HHS works with the three. When their pagers go off, they inform their teachers and the staff at the front office, and they’re excused for however long it takes to get the situation under control. “We think it’s a great thing,” said principal Mike Beard. “It’s awesome. I wish we had more kids who were willing to do this kind of stuff.” Getting to leave school for a fire call is a pretty rare occurrence though, Ryan said. Aaron has only had to leave class once to respond to a call. After high school, both Ryan and Aaron want to move into a career of wildfire fighting. Ryan has already looked at a certification course that’s offered in Missoula, Mont., and has taken some training courses in Montrose that will transfer credit to the Montana program. Levi also wants to pursue a career in professional firefighting, but wants to try his hand in an urban department.

at Paonia Junior and Senior High Schools on how to support their curriculum. Paonia Library also has a Toddler Program every Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. and Baby Time at 10 a.m. Jane Kelso leads these programs which are done in cooperation with Delta County Health and Human Services and the Toy Lending Library. She also goes to pre-schools twice a month for Story Time. For school-age kids there is a writer’s group that meets two Thursdays a month and a book discussion group that meets once a month. Laura Lee Yates leads the program for students in third to sixth grade. The program is after school at 4 p.m. Regular and additional new programs are offered in the evening to keep everyone excited and wanting to come to the library. “We’re very pleased with the geothermal heating,” Westerman said. “Because of the quality of the heating and cooling system, it stays comfortable all the time.” Landscaping remains to be done. Volunteers Lyle and Judy Millsap are designing the landscape. There will be a limited sprinkling system for the low maintenance xeriscape landscaping planned. A group is working on putting in a children’s garden which the kids would plant, tend and harvest. The group is working on the design and will go for a grant. They hopefully will be able to have the seedlings started at school and then planted in the garden next summer. There will be a picnic table and small reading area in back. Westerman said the lawn will not be something that has to be taken care of all the time and requires lots of water. They are looking at putting in wild grass. There will be large boulders as part of the landscape. The library asked the Paonia Town Council if the three to four vacant lots adjacent to the library and owned by the town could be leased. The library doesn’t want the vacant lots to be full of weeds and invade their landscaping. Laura Major of the library foundation said the lots could be landscaped with gravel, incorporated with the library’s landscaping to create a park setting or make it into a community garden. The library asked the town to let them know by Feb. 2010 so they would know whether to include the area in their landscape and irrigation plans.

North Fork Montessori students step back in time than 50 children from North Fork Community Montessori School (NFCMS). went to the Ute Indian Museum, and the Museum of the Mountain West, both in Montrose.

By Camille Bair Special to DCI

Why do these children look like they traveled back in time? Well, on Wednedsday, Nov. 3, more

Many of the children dressed for the occasion, in buckskin, bonnets, aprons and waistcoats, and once the bus dropped the groups off, it truly felt like “stepping back in time”. At the Ute Indian Museum, C.J. Brafford guided the children through animal names in sign language. Then they watched a video about the “Bear Dance”. Afterwards, the children wandered throught the museum, learning about Chief Ouray and his wife Chipeta, Buckskin Charlie, and why some babies’ cradlebaords had yellow at the top, while others had white. Can you guess? Boys’ cradleboards were white at the top, and girls’ ones were yellow! At the Museum of the Mountain West, Rich Fike and two docents guided the children in small groups. Fike began collecting western memorablia when he was just four years old. He created a museum in his parents’ guest room at age eight. By age 12, he had begun a card catalog of

artifacts. Fike and the docents had the children in awe in the doctor’s office, where there was a real skull, and a saw for sawing through limbs. They also got to see a corkscrew-shaped tool for handdrilling through a live person’s skull to relieve “swelling.” In the dentist’s office, they heard how it cost a quarter to get your tooth drilled (by hand), and another quarter for the anesthetic. Many children would forego spending that second quarter, and endure the pain. Why? Well, you could buy a month’s worth of candy with that other quarter! In the drugstore, all the cabinets were from the Olathe drugstore, from 1908. Inside, there were “penny dolls” (you could get one with arms that moved, but those were a nickel), a potty made of porcelain, and many “medicines.” One medicine could supposedly cure constipation or diarrhea at the same time. For another medicine, there was a story that a man

Hotchkiss recognized the academic excellence of its seventh and eighth graders during an afternoon assembly with parents on Wednesday, Nov. 11. Parents attended a reception with cake and coffee in the Don Tate Gymnasium at Hotchkiss K-8 prior to the presentation. This assembly was for accomplishments in the second semester in 2009. Red Club members are those students who had a .3 improvement in their grade point average. Blue Club members are those who have a 3.0 to 3.699 grade point average and for Gold Club a 3.7 to 4.0 grade point average. At this assembly, 76 percent of the seventh and eighth graders at Hotchkiss received awards.

The awards are sponsored by Roberts Short Stop. For the first time, one student,

seventh grader Shelby Rogers, qualified for both the Red and Blue Clubs.

working for 129 years. To keep the gears lubricated, you can put rattlesnake rattles in the bottom, because they give off an oily vapor. At one end of the store was a tiny post office, with real 100-year old envelopes and cards in the little post office boxes. The dry goods store was also full of fascinating stuff, and the saloon was so inviting that you could see why people would want to linger there. There were other buildings, too. The old Lutheran church was built by German immigrants, and doesn’t have a steeple, because that was so expensive. A doctor fell in love with it and bought it, but then spent $17,000 of his own money to have it transported half a mile to the Museum of the Mountain West, so that the whole community could enjoy it! Now, you can celebrate your wedding there. Lastly, the children visited the schoolhouse. One gas light lit the whole room; one woodstove provided heat, and there was one “paddle”, as long as a baseball bat. Stenciled onto it were these words: “22 smacks only”! Teachers had to be men, until the Civil War. Then, out of necessity, woman teachers were hired. A woman teacher had to be single. She could “spark” (date) once a month, unless she went to church. (If she went to church, she could spark twice a month). She had to wear two petticoats. Woman teachers usually lived with a family, but Montrose School District built a little brick house for their schoolteacher. It had pumped water, and in the teeny-tiny bedroom, the commode was right next to the bed! Needless to say, it was a very wonderful day.

Abandoned mines can pose many hazards both to people and environment through un-safe mine openings and structures as well as soils and surface water contamination from acid mine drainage and abandoned mine waste. However these sites are an important part of the culture and heritage of Ouray County and provide a unique glimpse into the past for tourists and younger generations. Through proper management, reclamation and safeguarding, the hazards of these sites can be remediated while

preserving cultural aspects. The Uncompahgre Watershed Planning Partnership is a volunteer group seeking to involve citizens and organizations in the Uncompahgre Watershed. Its mission is to protect and restore water quality in the Uncompahgre River through coordinated community and agency efforts. For more information about “Examining Abandoned Mine Lands in the Uncompahgre Watershed” contact Andrew Madison at 413-297-7232 or Ridgway.vista@gmail.com

Bringing in the ‘sheaves’ Local harvest time was in full swing during last week’s unseasonably warm weather. Trucks loaded with corn were lined up waiting to dispense their cargoes at the Foster Farms facility. A vital local agribusiness enterprise, Foster Farms is reportedly the major purchaser of Delta County’s corn production annually. Corn prices have increased some 15 percent since Oct. 1 because of poor weather conditions that have slowed harvest operations in the Midwest.

Scrapie rule aims to protect herds The Colorado Department of Agriculture reminds Colorado producers to tag and identify their sheep and goats for scrapie prior to a change of ownership or going to a livestock show. “This is the time of year when many producers will be taking their livestock to market and most sheep and goats are required to be tagged; this is an important step in protecting the industry,” said State Veterinarian, Dr. Keith Roehr. In 2001, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced an accelerated program to eradicate scrapie in the nation’s sheep flocks and goat herds. The National Scrapie Eradication Program (NSEP) includes participation by state governments and industry, particularly producers.

Scrapie is an infectious and fatal disease of sheep and goats, which causes production losses and a degeneration of the central nervous system resulting in a variety of behavioral and locomotive changes. Symptoms include tremors, scratching or rubbing, weakness, weight loss, biting of feet and limbs, lip smacking, lack of coordination, and gait abnormalities including high–stepping of the forelegs, hopping like a rabbit, and swaying of the back end. The scrapie agent is thought to be spread most commonly from the ewe to her offspring at lambing and through contact between infected and susceptible sheep and goats. In 1947, the first case of scrapie was diagnosed in the U.S. in sheep originating from Britain via Canada. The presence of

the infection prevents the export of breeding stock, semen and embryos to many other countries and costs the sheep industry between $20-25 million per year. “Producers are required to tag goats due to Colorado’s loss of commercial goat status,” continued Roehr. “If Colorado is to receive that status again, we must remain vigilant in protecting our herds from this disease.” The NSEP set tagging rules to help protect the sheep and goat industry: Sheep required to be officially tagged: • All sexually intact sheep regardless of age and wethers 18 months of age and older upon change of ownership or cull animals moving to slaughter. • All sexually intact sheep regardless of age and wethers 18 months of age and older for show or exhibition. • All breeding sheep regardless of age upon change of ownership or cull animals moving to slaughter. • Exception: Lambs moving directly to feedlots for slaughter and federally inspected slaughter facilities. Goats required to be officially tagged: • All sexually intact goats regardless of age and wethers 18 months of age and older upon change of ownership or cull animals moving to slaughter. • All sexually intact goats regardless of age and wethers 18

months of age and older for show or exhibition and do not have a registration tattoo with registration or the tattoo is illegible. • Due to scrapie found in goats in Colorado, all commercial sexually intact goats regardless of age and wethers 18 months of age and older not in slaughter channels. •All breeding goats regardless of age upon change of ownership or cull animals moving to slaughter. • Exception: Kid goats moving directly to feedlots for slaughter and federally inspected slaughter facilities. The Colorado Department of Agriculture is charged with regulating and reporting tagging rates, disease control and is available to advise producers on the tagging process.

Cedaredge mayor Tony Sluski gives resignation By Bob Borchardt Staff Writer

Monday morning, Nov. 16, the resignation of Cedaredge mayor Tony Sluski was announced by town adminstrator Kathleen Sickles, for personal reasons. In a short written statement to the town, Sluski said, “I would like to inform you that I am resigning from my position as Mayor of Cedaredge, effective Monday, Nov. 16, 2009. I am sorry if this causes any disruption. However, for personal reasons, I feel it is in the best interest of the Town.” Sluski declines any further comment. Sickles noted that the procedures for replacing the mayor and/or a trustee can be found in the Home Rule Charter, approved by the voters on Nov. 4, 2008, The procedure calls for the trustees to appoint a member of the board to serve as mayor until the next town election, which will occur in April 2010.

Under Section 2-7(b), if there will be remaining unexpired time in the term of the trustee appointed as mayor, the trustee shall be automatically restored to his or her trustee position and shall serve the remainder of his or her original term following that date. The charter also authorizes the trustees to appoint a person to fill the vacated trustee position to serve until the next regular town election within 90 days of the vacancy. The board also has the option to leave the office vacant, to be filled at the next election. Sluski was elected mayor in the April 2008 municipal election, and was administered the oath of office on April 17, 2008, by former mayor Bill Miller. Sickles said that she, along with the Mayor pro tem Gene Welch and town clerk Darlyn Novakovich, will provide a modified agenda in time for the Nov. 19 regular meeting of the Cedaredge Town Council.

Cedaredge approves medicinal marijuana store moratorium By Bob Borchardt Staff Writer

The Cedaredge Town Council placed a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries for one year during a special meeting on Thursday, Nov. 12. The trustees also approved the Colorado Employee Benefit Trust (CEBT) as vendor for the town’s health insurance program. They also discussed the process of recruiting a police chief, including the establishment of an advisory committee, to include Gene Gold and Lynn Spears. After taking these actions, the trustees adjourned the special meeting and convened their regular monthly work session. During the work session, Cedaredge trustees discussed the likelihood that, pending the approval of Resolution 21-2009 and Resolution 22-2009, water rates for Cedaredge water users are going to be increased while the capital improvement fee is going to be reduced. Currently, the monthly rates charged to “in town” water users are $16.50 for 10,000 gallons, plus a $7 capital improvement fee to fund the replacement of 4.2 miles of water line, plus an $8 debt service assessment fee to cover the debt service payment and required annual reserve, associated with the replacement of a “significant portion of the Town’s water distribution lines.” If approved by the trustees, Resolution 21-2009 would mod-

ify Resolution 11-1999, reducing the capital improvement fee to $4 per month in 2010, $3 per month in years 2011, 2012, 2013 and the first four months of 2014, and eliminating the capital improvement debt by May 2014. By contrast, if approved by the trustees, Resolution 22-2009 would raise the water rates by $4.50 per month, establishing the base rate at $21 per month, and increasing the number of gallons allowed to 12,000. The trustees also discussed a proposed resolution (Resolution 23-2009) to provide the revenue needed to maintain minimal operational expense of the animal shelter for 2010; discussed at length whether or not to accept the Planning and Zoning Commission’s most recent draft of the new Land Development and Zoning Code (Title 16); personnel updates including the resignation of Tree Board member Joe Capodice and the retirement of Tree Board member Charles Baker, leaving the tree board three members short. The Cedaredge Municipal Code mandates a tree board for the Town of Cedaredge, consisting of seven members, six of whom shall be appointed by the town mayor with the approval of the board of trustees, and one trustee. The trustees also discussed hiring Dave Wall as the new water treatment plant operator; and the updating of the town’s personnel manual.

Moratorium won’t affect exisitng ‘herbal dispensary’ in Orchard City By Hank Lohmeyer Staff Writer

With the Orchard City Town Board ready to consider a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries, officials learned last week that an “herbal dispensary” in Eckert has been established as a limited liability corporation since July. Orchard City Mayor Don Suppes said he did not know about Grand Mesa Herbal Dispensary LLC on Nov. 4 when he announced his plans to propose a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries in town. “I really don’t think it makes any difference as far as a moratorium goes if anyone might already be legally dispensing marijuana,” Suppes said. “There’s not too much we could do about that.” The town board has not yet seen nor acted on the moratorium idea. Suppes added that he will propose it at the trustee’s December meeting as an emergency ordinance that would take effect immediately upon passage. Earlier this year, The Grand Mesa Herbal Dispensary LLC placed advertisements saying, “Now accepting patients. Please call to schedule an appointment.”

A call last week to the cell phone number given in an ad was answered by a recorded woman’s voice. It said, “Hello, and thank you for calling the dispensary.” The call then switched to an automated voice attendant offering to take a message. “What we do is strictly lowkey. The only reason we got into this is because my wife was discovered with inoperable cancer,” the LLC’s registered agent, Jay, told the DCI. “I was asked by a local oncologist to start the dispensary,” When asked about the town’s proposed moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries, Jay said, “I’ve lived here (in Orchard City) 17 years, We all know this is a conservative area. I have a license. My plan was to open a location in Telluride. Telluride is an adult town, and I thought they would legalize it (marijuana) there the way Breckenridge did.” Breckenridge voters approved a measure to legalize adult possession of marijuana on Nov. 3. There were no questions concerning legalizing marijuana on Telluride’s Nov. 3 election ballot. Instead, the town has adopted its own moratorium and Grand mesa Herbal Dispensary’s application for a store front operation

there was turned down. “We haven’t even been charging the patients we work with,” Jay said. “But now, with a moratorium, I will have to begin charging them just so I can prove that I’m a legitimate business.” He explained that Grand Mesa Herbal Dispensary only deals with terminally ill patients. Though Jay would not state the number of patients they have, he said they are all Orchard City or Delta County residents. “They are all doctor approved and have their state Registry cards. Yesterday I visited one of our patients in Hotchkiss; an elderly lady with terminal cancer. The marijuana has been a godsend for her. She can actually eat now after her chemotherapy sessions” Though Colorado’s medical marijuana law protects patients and caregivers from state and local prosecution, federal laws against marijuana possession and sale still apply. Since there is no state licensing of dispensaries, the terms “permit” or “license” used in regard to medical marijuana is often a reference to the Medical Marijuana Registry Identification Card. The cards are issued by the CDPHE. They

allow individuals to possess and use marijuana for medical reasons. People who provide medical marijuana to a patient are required to have a copy of the patient’s Registry Identification Card. As part of the application process, a patient designates a “primary caregiver.” The primary caregiver must be a person over 18 years of age who will have “significant responsibility” for managing the patient’s well being. No specific medical training is required to be a primary caregiver. Patients with a Medical Registry Identification Card may buy, grow, possess and use marijuana for medical reasons. Designated primary caregivers are able to grow and possess, and buy and sell medical marijuana for use by their patients. On Monday, Nov. 16, the Colorado Attorney General John Suthers issued a formal opinion that medical marijuana, in most instances, should be subject to state and local sales taxes. “Many other questions surrounding medical marijuana and Amendment 20 to the Colorado Constitution will have to be resolved by the courts or the Colorado legislature,” noted Suthers.

Development and zoning code clears Cedaredge P&Z By Bob Borchardt Staff Writer

Bob Borchardt/DCI

Remembering those who served On Wednesday, Nov. 11 — Veterans Day — members of the Grand Mesa VFW Post 9221 and the American Legion, Post 104, conducted a tribute to the men and women buried at the Cedaredge Cemetery who have served in the military. The ceremony featured guest speaker Lee White, District Commander for the American Legion District 11; an honor guard consisting of Bill Peas, Phil Beckley and David Craig; a rifle squad salute by Bill Hendrix, Wayne Hamrick and Don Ruck; Ray Carpenter blowing “Taps,” and Tom McLamb calling out the names of the nearly 300 veterans of military service buried at the Cedaredge Cemetery. Hundreds of U.S. flags were on display in the cemetery to commemorate the observance.

Gerry Mendralla, chairman of the Cedaredge Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z), and Cedaredge Trustee Clayton Ryan report that during the regular meeting of the P&Z on Tuesday, Nov. 10, the final touches on a totally revised draft of Title 16 (Land Development and Zoning Code) and have approved sending it to the Cedaredge Town Council for acceptance. The commission has been working on this for more than a year and a half, using the Rifle Land Development Code as a model. Mendralla said the P&Z members “went through the

whole thing [the draft of the new Cedaredge Land Development and Zoning Code] line-by-line, one more time, to fine tune the document before giving it to the town council.” According to Mendralla, the draft combines the development, annexation application, zoning and subdivision regulations, using the town’s current Construction Standards and Specifications, into a single document, thereby making the whole process of land development easier to understand. There may be other issues to be addressed. During the work session on Thursday, Nov. 12, a statement by Cedaredge trustee

Bruce Bertram, regarding Title 13 of the Town’s Municipal Code (pertaining to water and sewer service, septic tanks and systems and soil absorption systems), caused Cedaredge mayor Tony Sluski to comment that trustees have the prerogative to reject the new Land Development and Zoning Code until Title 13 is updated and reconciled with the annexation portion of the new land development code.

Veterans honored at Cedaredge High School assembly By Verna Barr Staff Writer

How would you feel if at the beginning of an assembly honoring veterans you heard an announcement that “just this morning our president had signed a document to draft our young people into the armed forces”? This happened at the start of the Veterans Day program held at Cedaredge High School on Tuesday, Nov. 10.

Shock and complete silence was felt throughout the room prior to a second announcement stating that the first message was untrue, it had not happened! It did get everyone’s attention and brought even more meaning to the Veterans Day message about veterans and their service to our country. Cedaredge Middle School joined Cedaredge High School students, teachers, veterans, family members, and friends for the

assembly with Brooke Gardner as master of ceremonies. Musical numbers were provided by CHS Show Choir and CHS Jazz Band. Included were two music videos, “Ragged Old Flag” narrated by Johnny Cash and “American Soldier” sung by Toby Keith. VFW Post 9221 sponsored the Voice of Democracy essay contest at Cedaredge High School. Winners Anthony Jump, Dessa Markley and Jheri Gates presented their entries titled “Does America Still Have Heroes?” Guest speakers were Gary Tollefson, Commander, VFW Post 9221 and Don Craig, Past Commander, VFW Post 9221 Tollefson recognized veterans who served in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, campaigns in Grenada, Cuban missile crisis, Lebanon, Panama, Libya, Somalia, Haiti, Operation Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan. As the branches of the armed forces were announced, veterans stood to standing ovations. He said, “What you are witnessing here is the living history of our nation’s veterans from the last 65 years. Some are career military and some were

drafted. Some served 20 years and some two years. These men and women served in every way possible from mail clerks, truck drivers and riflemen to pilots and other officers. It takes everyone, working as a team to be effective as the strongest military in the world.” “Veteran’s Day is an opportunity to publicly commemorate the contributions of veterans, both living and those who have passed on ... those who have fought, died and served to preserve this land of hopes and dreams,” Craig said. He told the history of this special day. At the end of an inspiring and thought-provoking speech, Craig talked directly to the young people in the audience saying, “The future of this country is in your hands. Freedom can be only one generation away from extinction. You are our future leaders. You will lead this country in the direction that will insure its freedom and posterity. You as our future leaders, can only do so by showing your desire to pledge loyalty and true patriotism to the United States of America.”

VFW PAST COMMANDER POST #9221 Don Craig, Voice of Democracy essay winners Anthony Jump (1st place), Dressa Markley (2nd place), Jheri Gates (3rd place), and VFW Commander Gary Tollefson were guest speakers at the Veterans Day Assembly held at CHS.

Winning Voice of Democracy essay Cedaredge High School’s Anthony Jump earned first place in this year’s Voice of Democracy essay contest sponsored by VFW Post # 9921. His written essay follows: Does America Still Have Heroes? America has had many heroes over the years. Some are more commonly thought of like George Washington or Abraham Lincoln. These heroes fought to create and keep the county together. Others like Martin Luther King Jr. fought and died for the rights of the people. When asked if America has heroes most people will think of these individuals. Yet does America still have heroes? The answer to that question is yes. America still has heroes, they may not be big names, but they do exist. The heroes of today are those who stand up for our country and what is right. One great example of America’s heroes are those who serve in our military. They are commonly thought of as heroes because they put their lives on the line every day to defend our country. They leave their families and go off to war fighting for their country and the countries of others, completely prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice. They are the obvious heroes of America. Still there are less obvious heroes. There are those who stand up for what is right in their communities and states. Volunteers and other local leaders are the backbone of this group of heroes. These heroes are those

who contribute as much as they can to society to make it better for all. They contribute time, money, and effort without thinking of what it could do for them and thinking of the good they are doing for others. These heroes may not seem like much but they are the whole world to the people they help. This group of heroes is often seen at disaster sites and in groups such as Habitat for Humanity. Politicians are another group of heroes. They are not often thought of as heroes especially in this economy. Yet politicians, especially in local government, can be heroes by passing laws that protect or help people from injustice. National politicians often don’t get respect as heroes due to the fact that it is harder to get laws that do good for everyone not just small groups of people. They have to think of the country as a whole not just look out for certain people. They have the hardest fight of all heroes but they give their all to serve those who elect them. Not all heroes are easy to spot often times they come in small packages. But no matter how big or small a hero is they make a huge impact on those they help, protect, and serve. These are the heroes of America and there are more here than anywhere else in the world. Yet many sadly go unnamed and are under appreciated by the majority of citizens. So not only does America still have heroes but America has hundreds of thousands of heroes.

Sheriff gives activity report By Hank Lohmeyer Staff Writer

For the 10 months of 2009, the Delta County Sheriff’s Department has responded to 373 calls for service in “the Orchard City area,” made 24 arrests in connection with those calls, and handled an additional 49 traffic offences. Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee attended the Orchard City trustee meeting on Nov. 4 and gave the annual report on his department’s law enforcement activities in the town for the year. McKee’s report included other crime statistics that town residents interested in happenings around the neighborhood will find interesting. Those statistics included the following ones: • Civil complaints and animal control complaints topped the town’s call-in list with 26 calls and 25 calls respectively. • There have been 19 reports each of theft and disturbance, and the sheriff received 14 calls for domestic violence. • There were ten cases of criminal mischief; eight restraining order complaints; six assaults; four traffic accidents; three each unattended death and DUI; and, there has been one burglary and one sexual assault. McKee’s report offered basic population-to-officer ratio data that indicates the relative response loads of agencies in Delta County. For example, the unincorporated county area, with Orchard City and Crawford added in, has a population of 17,187. Patrolled by the sheriff’s 14 uniformed deputies, that is a person-to-officer ratio of 1227to-one. Ratios for the other local law enforcement jurisdictions in the county work out as follows: • Hotchkiss, 341-to-one; • Paonia, 409-to-one;

• Cedaredge, 440-to-one; • And Delta, 673-to-one. McKee explained that his department divides the unincorporated county into five districts and tabulates the response calls for each of the districts. District #1 surrounds the City of Delta and has generated 742 calls for sheriff service in the last ten months of 2009. The other county districts are District #2 (Surface Creek) with 442 calls; District #3 (North Fork) with 738 calls; and, Orchard City with 373 and Crawford’s 73 calls bringing the total DCSO calls for January through October this year to 2,368. Under a contract agreement with the sheriff’s office, the town pays $50,000 per year

to fund an additional uniformed sheriff’s deputy. One of his department’s 14 deputies is paid for by Orchard City. Before the agreement went into effect in 2008, his department had 13 uniformed patrol deputies, McKee said. Under the agreement with the sheriff, the town also pays for a new sheriff’s patrol vehicle every three years. The deputy that Orchard City pays for is not specifically assigned to Orchard City detail. But, by having that extra officer on the roster, it is reasoned, the sheriff is better able to respond in the town where the number of calls for sheriff assistance have been growing rapidly for several years.

Deanna Sheriff pitches case for economic development funding By Hank Lohmeyer Staff Writer

Following a presentation which stated that efforts of Delta County Economic Development (formerly DADI) have brought 35 jobs and $1.27 million of direct investment in Orchard City, the town trustees agreed to double their donation to the group next year to $500. The organization’s director Deana Sheriff had requested $1,000 during her presentation to the town board on Oct. 14. Trustees agreed to put a $500 donation in the town’s 2010 budget which is scheduled for adoption next month. Trustee Marsha Thomas said that she was surprised by the number of Orchard City jobs and direct investment Sheriff stated in her presentation. Sheriff offered to share with the trustees a list of the businesses they had helped over the years of DCED’s existence. The organization “is not very visible in the community,” Sheriff acknowledged. That has an effect on public perception of its work and many successes. And, because of the type of work that DCED does, in a lot of cases it is required to withhold non-public information on the businesses it is dealing with, Sheriff explained. Sheriff’s Oct. 4 presentation to the town board focused on issues

of jobs and taxes. The biggest component of the town’s General Fund revenue comes from its share of the county sales tax. More good jobs mean more money for people to spend, which means more sales taxes paid and more money for Orchard City government. Reading from a letter written by former mayor and current DCED board vice president Tom Huerkamp, Sheriff said, “Orchard City stands to gain the most from good jobs. That is because good jobs and a good local economy translate into more sales tax. While Orchard City businesses do collect county sales tax, it is the smallest amount collected by any of the [county municipalities]; yet Orchard City’s share of county receipts is the second largest after the City of Delta.” Continuing reading from the letter Sheriff said, “Delta County and the City of Delta have been supporting DCED’s efforts to the tune of $25,000 each annually. I think it is time for the rest of the towns to shoulder a bigger part of the funding because increased town sales tax is important to everyone. I ask that Orchard City set the bar for our neighboring communities.” The letter concluded and appealed for a $1,000 donation. Mayor Don Suppes, at the conclusion of Sheriff’s presentation,

Pottery party nets nearly $2,400 for Pioneer Town By Bob Borchardt Staff Writer

The annual “Pottery for Pioneer Town Soup Supper” took place on Thursday, Nov. 12, at the Stolte Shed, with a standing room only crowd of soup lovers and supporters. The annual event, a fund raiser to benefit the Surface Creek Valley Historical Society (SCVHS), is dedicated to the memory of Margaret Ellsworth. For $15, folks got a pottery bowl, created by local potters, filled with an “all you can eat”

choice of soup, chili, chowder or stew, and a choice of bread, drink and dessert, and they got to keep the bowl. Items for sale during the silent auction, including a handmade Williamsburg Rocking Horse, donated by John Triebwasser, were on display for viewing the day before the event. According to spokesperson and event organizer, Gini Moseley, after all the bills were paid, the event raised nearly $2,400 for the SCVHS.

Serving up soul food Eckert Presbyterian Church was the site Nov. 11 for the continuation of a community tradition that goes back farther than most people can remember – The Eckert Harvest Dinner. Church members prepared the main entrée, amazingly tender and flavorful roast beef, in their own homes. That delicious part of the event tradition was complemented with other homemade and home-prepared sides of mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, corn and dessert. The downstairs church hall was busy for a full three hours as folks from as far away as Montrose, and maybe farther, lined up for their once-a-year chance to support a great church and enjoy a great, homemade meal. The Harvest Dinner tradition dates back to at least the 1930’s, some say, when the Challenge Creamery was the site for this annual Surface Creek Valley fall classic.

asked the organization to submit a letter requesting the donation in writing. In the town board’s discussion of the request, trustee sentiment focused on the town’s own budget cutting and declining revenue streams in setting on the $500 figure. In a computer slide presentation, Sheriff also outlined some of DCED’s activities and plans for the upcoming year including the following. • Attending business expos is one of DCED’s promotional prospect scouting activities. One expo event provided a contact which led directly to the Becker SMC mine equipment services facility locating in Delta County. • The efforts of DCED to help companies write grant applications “has had some success.” • The organization is “listening

to business on business issues.” It has committed to survey at least 30 local businesses on a broad range of topics. • DCED has developed an online marketing presence. • A couple of visionary goals for the coming year are to work on developing a “business continuity park.” It would include a renewable energy power supply. Backup electrical power for the park would be provided by an on-site electric generating facility using area forest’s biomass as renewable fuel source. The idea could be integrated with an effort to attract facilities that store vital business information for others in electronic form and who need continuous power. • Sheriff reported that DCED’s operations budget for 2010 is $128,000.

USPS announces deadlines for holiday mail to U.S. troops The U.S. Postal Service recently announced its recommended mailing dates for delivery by Christmas to our U.S. military troops serving overseas at APO/FPO addresses. Holiday mail for U.S. troops stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan should be sent by Dec. 4 for arrival by Christmas. Holiday mail going to other military overseas APO/FPO locations should be sent by Dec. 11. Except for military mail going to Iraq and Afghanistan (APO/FPO AE ZIP 093), Express Mail can also be used to mail packages to other overseas military locations until Dec. 18 for delivery by Christmas. Mail sent to overseas military addresses is charged at domestic mail prices. All packages and mail must be addressed to individual service members by name, in accordance with U.S. Dept. of Defense regulations. All military overseas units are assigned an APO or FPO ZIP Code and,

in many cases, that ZIP Code travels with the unit. The Postal Service places APO/FPO mail on special transportation to be delivered to our military troops overseas as soon as possible. All mail addressed to military post offices overseas is subject to certain conditions or restrictions regarding content, preparation and handling. APO/FPO addresses generally require customs forms. To see updated APO and FPO addresses and mailing restrictions by individual APO/ FPO ZIP Codes, www.usps.com/ cpim/ftp/bulletin/pb.htm. As for domestic deadlines and using regular mail, send holiday cards, letters and packages going to U.S. destinations by Dec. 21 for delivery by Christmas. Using Express Mail, you still have time to mail packages to certain U.S. locations until Dec. 23. The Postal Service has not announced the official deadlines for mailing overseas to other international countries yet but will soon.

Our arrangements come in all shapes and sizes. We believe a service should be as individual as the individual. That’s why we embrace the choice of cremation as much as the choice of traditional burial. Whichever you choose, your options are far from limited.

Daniels Fund applications due Dec. 2

GMES recognizes AR winners AR, or Accelerated Reader, is a program that encourages students to read. Each quarter, students set goals for their independent reading. There are three categories each student needs to meet to

be a “Triple Winner.” First is the amount read, second is an appropriate reading level, and third are percentages from the quizzes that students take after reading each book. The students who meet all three goals by the end

5C

of the quarter are called “Triple Winners.” Grade level champs are the students from each grade level who read the most. Garnet Mesa Elementary School is proud of each and every triple winner.

Photo submitte

AR CHAMPIONS AT GARNET Mesa Elementary School were Rhiannon Broyles, fifth grade; Samantha Wollert, fourth grade; Azalee Hoffbauer, third grade; and Kenton Padigimus, second grade.

The Daniels Fund has launched the application process for Daniels Scholarships to be awarded in spring 2010. Students should ask their high school counselors for information or visit www. danielsfund.org. The Daniels Scholarship is not a “full ride,” but is supplemental to all other financial aid resources available to the student. The scholarship amount is determined after all other financial aid sources and an Expected Family Contribution have been applied. Scholarships cover all or part of a student’s required college expenses (i.e. tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and miscellaneous educational expenses).

Simon and Son return to Delta By Charlie Huff Delta-Montrose Community Concert Association

It became quite obvious that I was hardly the Lone Ranger when it came to having an enthusiastic appreciation for a return performance of the talented and affable pianist duo of Peter Simon and his son Saling. They had appeared here some seven years ago when Saling was barely a budding teenager. We were thoroughly pleased with their superb keyboard talent and good humor then and, it would seem, even more so for Thursday evening’s performance. It was almost a “new” father and son team with Saling now a mature young man — a college student, even — and his father, like us all, just a little more seasoned in body and spirit but just as magnificent in the sharing of his musical talents at the piano as well as a number or two playing the clarinet and drums with Saling at the keyboard for “Boogie Variations” and “Begin the Beguine.” Saling also displayed his accomplished percussion talent at the drums with a magnificently executed

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Your frustration may reach a boiling point this week, Aries. You need to find an outlet or you may just explode. Find something relaxing and do it in spades. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 A sudden blast of inspiration gets you through some tough times this week, Taurus. The creative juices get flowing and you produce everything you need to get done. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Confrontations may be unpleasant, Gemini, but sometimes they are necessary. Just make sure you are diplomatic and logical in your approach or it could backfire on you. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Although you may prefer to be silent this week on a certain matter, Cancer, once you get started voicing your opinion it can be hard to stop. Try not to say too much. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 This week you will learn that you can be content with fewer material things than you thought. That’s because money is tight and you can’t succumb to every whim. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Every day can’t be a happy day, Virgo, and there are some bumpy ones along the way this week. Use this opportunity to learn from the bad day experiences. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Right now it could seem challenging to find a positive outcome in your love life, Libra. But just stick with what you’re doing and you just may be pleasantly surprised later on. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 You may need to put on a suit of armor this week, Scorpio, because your friends may be unnecessarily brutal toward you for no apparent reason. Avoid fighting back. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 This week you’re pretty tired from all of your hard work through the months, Sagittarius. You’re tempted to just throw in the towel for a while. That’s not the thing to do right now. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 You have high hopes around an upcoming adventure, Capricorn. Just don’t let your self-confidence waver or the plans could fall through. Let go of your fears. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 If you were expecting some help from a friend or family member, Aquarius, you may not like the reality that he or she won’t follow through. It’s all up to you. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 You are a few more steps closer to your dream, Pisces. That’s enough for now to keep you moving forward. Anything is possible.

version of the famous drum solo of “Wipeout.” Though a number of their piano numbers centered on the European “classics,” they played a wide variety of popular pieces from all eras, including an absolutely astounding duet version of the William Tell Overture — the Lone Ranger theme music — as even the Lone Ranger had surely never heard it! And Saling performed his rendition of “Fire Dance” that turned the ivory red hot and made the keyboard smoke! (Our poor old Steinway was surely giving it all she had to give!) Throughout their performance, the audience was nearly breathless as they witnessed Simon and Son play one number after another at a pace that just seemed nearly impossible, surely using every one of the 88 keys with speed and precision blended with their uniquely personal touch of harmonious embellishments or “Simonizing” as Peter referred to their style and the enhancements of the standard arrangements. Their connection with our

audience — nearly a three quarter house full — was obvious and unique as we were drawn to our feet with applause on three occasions including Peter’s conclusion of the entire, original score of George Gershwin’s piano solo of “Rhapsody in Blue” — simply masterly performed! In all, it was an evening to be remembered, a time well spent by all who took the opportunity to be there. Indeed, it was typical of the kind of talent and performances that are made available to all of us by your DeltaMontrose Community Concert Association. And we certainly extend a hardy invitation to all to be in attendance at the next event which will be held on Friday, Jan. 29, at the usual time of 7:30 p.m. at the Center for the Performing Arts and Education (former middle school at 9th & Grand). The “Men of Worth,” a Scottish and Irish folk duo, a team of great talent and good humor will be performing for us. (For further information on admission/membership, please call Bob Brown at 835-4480.) I trust I’ll see you there!

Diabetes is a disease in which the body has a difficult time converting food to energy. Most of the food we eat is broken down into a sugar called glucose and then carried by the blood to all parts of the body. A hormone, called insulin, helps the body change blood sugar into energy. There are three types of diabetes. Type I diabetes is a condition in which the body makes little or no insulin. Individuals with this type of diabetes must take daily insulin injections to survive. This form of diabetes usually develops in children or young adults, but can occur at any age. “In Type 2 diabetes, the body makes large amounts of insulin, but does not use the insulin properly,” says Mary Grosvenor RD, certified diabetes educator at Delta County Memorial Hospital. “This form of diabetes typically occurs in people over the age of 40 who are overweight and have a family history of diabetes.” Gestational diabetes develops only during pregnancy. Women who have had gestational diabetes have a 20 to 50 percent chance of developing Type 2 diabetes within 5 to 10 years. “With all types of diabetes, blood sugar levels go up. Over

time, high blood sugar can cause damage to nerves and blood vessels and can lead to heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure and amputations,” said Ms. Grosvenor. Who’s at Risk? Anyone can get diabetes. However, people with close relatives with the disease are more likely to develop it. The risk of developing diabetes also increases with age. Other factors that increase your risk for diabetes include: Having higher than normal blood sugar Being overweight Having high blood pressure (140/90 or higher) Having higher than normal cholesterol levels Prior history of gestational

diabetes or giving birth to at least one baby weighing more than 9 pounds. Being inactive (exercising fewer than three times a week) How do you know if you have diabetes? Often times, there are no visible signs or symptoms of diabetes. Symptoms can also be so mild that they are hard to notice. Signs to look for include: Increased thirst Extreme hunger Frequent urination (especially at night) Weight loss that cannot be explained Blurred vision Skin infections or sores that do not heal Weakness and tiredness Should you be tested?

If you have one or more symptoms (above), your doctor may recommend that you get tested for diabetes. If you are 45 years of age or older and are overweight, you should consider getting tested for diabetes. Talk to your doctor about your risk of developing diabetes and about getting testing. Can You Prevent Diabetes? You can do a lot to reduce your risk of developing diabetes. Studies show that Type 2 diabetes can be prevented by losing weight, exercising 30 minutes five or more days a week, and eating healthier. For more information about diabetes, contact the registered dietitians and certified diabetes educator at Delta County Memorial Hospital at 874-6410.

National Radiologic Technology Week is celebrated Nov. 8-14 During National Radiologic Technology Week® Delta County Memorial Hospital celebrates the hard work and important contribution our medical imaging professionals make in patient care. National Radiologic Technology Week ® Nov. 8-14 celebrates the vital contributions of medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals, whose work too often goes unrecognized. “Improving Healthcare One Image at a Time” has been selected as the official 2009 theme. This year, the Delta County Memorial Hospital Radiology department has added mobile PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography) scanning capability. A PET scan takes powerful images of the biological functions within the body. Physicians are able to see changes in the body

tissues and organs that are altered by disease or injury. Women who undergo routine mammograms at Delta County Memorial Hospital now have the latest diagnostic technology available to them, digital mammography. On May 15, the department began offering state-of-the-art system, digital mammography from Hologic™. The hospital continues to provide CT (computed tomography) scans, stereotactic breast biopsy, digital mammography with computer aided detection, bone densitometry, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, and MRI services in addition to general X-ray examinations. The department also participates with the Shriner’s Hospital of Salt Lake City in providing four local orthopedic clinics for area children via an

interactive TV link. Delta County Memorial Hospital would like to recognize our Radiology staff during National Radiologic Technology Week: Steve Amble, Kim Bacon, Gary Bonkoski, Lynda Brew, Linda Burnett, Tom Carmichael, Toni Colby, Darcy Ellis, Helen Foust, Debra Harding, Cherish Hockey, Tom Leavins, Chris LeFevre, Kimberly Lanning, Donna Lucas, Claire Mannarino, Susie Marshall, Arnie Michaud, Melissa Pacheco, Dawn Parker, Jeff Richmond, Mike Schaefer, Cathy Smith, Greg Speck, Jill Young, Kenny Young, Melody Willey, Kathryn Witte, Sharon Wolf, Amy Hamilton, Brielle Brewer, Kristin Husted, Bodie Blowers, Penny Hamill, Liz Vrbas, and Steven Bernstein M.D. and Mary Murphy M.D., radiologists.

Pediatric Associates, Center for Mental Health form partnership The Center for Mental Health and Pediatric Associates have joined together to provide comprehensive health care to children on site at Pediatric Associates in Montrose and Delta. Each child between the ages of 11 and 18 who comes to Pediatric Associates for a well-child check will automatically be screened for depression and other mental health conditions using a selfassessment survey tablet. The screening is completed on a patient survey box by the parent or the child at the time of the appointment. The results from the survey tablet are immediately downloaded and scanned into the patient’s chart so the results are immediately available to the doctor. If the patient is identified as having potential mental health issues, the doctor will engage the behavioral therapist to provide a screening assessment. The doctor and the therapist will then work together to address the needs of the patient and their family. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2009, states, “One in five children and adolescents, aged 9 to 17 years experience symptoms of mental health problems that cause some level of impairment in a given year. However, fewer than 20 percent who need mental health services receive them.” According to Jon Gordon, executive director for The Center for Mental Health, “In our area, understanding the prevalence of mental health problems in youth and getting treatment for them

are often worlds apart. Many youth referred to The Center for a mental health assessment do not make or keep the appointment. This project will make it much easier for families to access behavioral health care for their children in conjunction with their well-child visits or when a behavioral health concern becomes part of the reason for the visit to the pediatrician.” According to the National Institute of Mental Health, half of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by age 14. With this project and by identifying and helping young children and their parents manage difficulties early in life, we may be able to prevent the development of mental health disorders before they become more difficult to treat. Dr. Mary Vader of Pediatric Associates states, “A common barrier to care in the past is a

lack of mental health availability for my kids. I feel very fortunate to be able to partner with The Center for Mental Health in this new model of care. To have this cutting edge care, right here in our Medical Home, provides a wonderful service without the inconvenience of travel.” This project is made possible by a grant from the Colorado Health Foundation. The Colorado Health Foundation works to make Colorado the healthiest state in the nation by investing in grants and initiatives to health-related non-profits that focus on increasing the number of Coloradans with health insurance; ensuring they have access to quality, coordinated care; and encouraging healthy living.

It’s time to review your Medicare Rx plan Everyone with Medicare is eligible for Medicare prescription drug plan coverage (Medicare Part D). Each year between Nov. 15 and Dec. 31 you have an opportunity to review your current plan and compare it to the new plans that will be available during the next calendar year and change companies if you find a plan that has better coverage and/or a lower premium. This is referred to as the “Annual Election Period.” It is extremely important that you review your plan annually to make sure it provides the best coverage for your medications. Don’t assume that the plan you have used in 2009 is the best one for next year. Premiums for most plans have increased in cost for 2010 and some plans have dropped coverage of some medications. Each insurance plan is required to mail an “Annual Notice of Change” to you during October of each year. This notice will give you the information on your premium for the next year along with any premium change. The plan is not required to send you a list of drugs it will cover for that year. You must find out if the prescription drugs you take will be covered by your plan for the next year. How Coverage Works In Colorado for 2010, there are 46 stand-alone plans provided by 19 private companies that are approved by Medicare. In addition there are 63 Medicare Advantage (HMO, PPO and PFFS plans) or other Medicare Health Plans that provide prescription drug coverage. Each plan has a different list of drugs covered (formulary), premiums, deductibles, co-pays and pharmacy networks. Each standard plan will have a coverage gap where you will pay the full costs of your drugs — sometimes referred to as the “donut hole.” In 2010, after you have paid $4550 out of pocket, catastrophic coverage begins and you will pay only 5 percent for your drug costs and the plan will pay 95 percent. Approximately 5,000 Coloradoans are losing coverage because their plans are leaving the Colorado market in 2010. If you are one of these people, you should have been notified by

your company that you will have to make new choices for coverage in 2010. You will be automatically re-enrolled in your current plan unless you make the change to another plan. If you don’t check to see if your prescriptions are covered for 2010 in your current plan, you may find you have greater drug costs out of pocket. What Is Covered? Medicare requires each drug plan to cover both brand name and generic drugs. While plans must cover drugs from each therapeutic category, it is not likely that plans will cover all drugs. In addition, standard plans will not cover over-the-counter drugs, cosmetic drugs, weight control drugs, vitamins, and two classes of drugs known as benzodiazepines and barbiturates. You have the option of enrolling in a standard plan with lower premiums or you may choose an enhanced plan with higher premiums and receive increased drug coverage. Marketing and Consumer Protection To protect yourself from fraud, do not do business with representatives of prescription drug plans who: Come to your home uninvited. Say they represent Medicare, that Medicare wants you to buy their plan, or that Medicare recommends their product. Medicare does not sell Medicare Part D, private insurance companies do. Ask you for Social Security numbers, banking and credit card information, or similar information as part of their marketing. Ask you to enroll you over the phone — unless you have called them first. To enroll over the phone, use the plan phone number listed in the Medicare Drug Insurance and You, Colorado Options 2010, published by the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies, Division of Insurance. Don’t use a different number given to you by someone who says they represent the plan. Asks for payment over the phone or over the Internet. You have the option of having the premiums deducted from your Social Security check or paying the plan directly. Use high pressure sales tactics. Say you have to join their drug plan because you have their Medigap plan. (Medigap is different than a Medicare HMO) Say their plan will supplement your employer retiree health plan, TriCare for Life, or other comprehensive secondary insurance plan. If you suspect fraudulent marking activities by a Medicare prescription drug insurance provider or by an insurance sales representative, call the Colorado SMP, a division of the Colorado Division of Insurance at 1-800503-5190. Enrollment If you decide to change plans for 2010, the effective date of your new plan will be Jan. 1, 2010. Medicare encourages everyone to review their plan early and if you make the decision to change plans, to do so by Dec. 15. This will ensure that you will allow adequate time for

your new plan to send you an insurance card and that the transition into your new plan goes smoothly. If you have special circumstances, move in or out of Colorado during the year, lose your present drug coverage, or move into or out of a long-stay nursing home, you will have special enrollment rules and will be able to change plans during the year. To enroll in a prescription drug plan, contact the plan directly or call 1-800-MEDICARE. Phone numbers for each of the plans can be found in Medicare Drug Insurance and You, Colorado Options 2010. This publication is available at the visitor desk at Delta County Memorial Hospital, the local Retired Senior Volunteer (RSVP) office at 1888-696-7213 or by calling the Education Department at Delta County Memorial Hospital at 874-2291. You will also be able to enroll on the Internet by visiting the plan’s website or visiting Medicare www.medicare.gov. If you have Medicare, have limited income and resources and are not receiving Medicaid, you may qualify for extra help with Medicare drug costs. You may qualify if: You are single with income less than $1,354 per month and assets no more than $12,510; or You are married with incomes less than $1821 per month and assets no more than $25,010. (Your house, the land on which your home sits, your personal possessions and your vehicles do not count toward your assets.) The extra help means you will have little or no premiums or deductibles and will pay only a small amount of co-pay for each of your prescriptions. If you think you qualify, you should contact the Social Security Administration (SSA) at 1-800772-1213 or www.ssa.gov for an application. You cannot get extra help unless you apply. If you are unsure as to whether you qualify for extra help, you should fill out an application. When in doubt, fill it out! If you currently have little or no drug costs, you may be asking yourself why you would want to enroll in a Medicare prescription plan. It is important that you remember that the Medicare drug coverage is an insurance program designed to protect you now and in the future. Insurance is something that cannot always be purchased when you need it, and you cannot predict your future health needs. It is also important to remember that if you do not enroll now, you will pay higher premiums in the future. The penalty for not enrolling is one percent PER MONTH premium increase for each month that you are eligible and do not enroll, based on the national average price. The national average price for 2010 is $31.94 per month. Access to Benefits Coalition-Colorado (ABC-CO) is a group of Colorado organizations that can help you with questions and, usually, provide one-on-one assistance if necessary. ABC-CO materials and presentations are developed by people who do not market Medicare prescription drug plans. These materials are financed by Medicare grants to the Colorado Division of Insur-

November is Nat’l. Home Care Month Each November, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) celebrates National Home Care Month, National Hospice Month, and Home Care Aide Week to honor health care administrators, nurses, clinicians, therapists, aides, homemakers, chore workers, and companions who make a remarkable difference in the lives of patients and their families. More than 11 million Americans receive home-delivered health care from home health care providers. “Caring for the sick, elderly and dying in their homes is truly a privilege for us,” said Stephany Seuell, RN Delta Montrose Home Health director. “Home care professionals and volunteers, along with modern medicine and technology, make it possible for sick citizens to be cared for in their homes, regardless of their condition.” NAHC develops themes for National Home Care Month each year to exemplify the high regard we hold for home care and professionals and the special relationships that they maintain with patients and their family members. The themes for November 2009 are: Home Care: “Love in Action” Home Care Aide: “Loving Hands & Compassionate Hearts” The second full week in November (Nov. 4-14) is marked as an occasion to celebrate the important contribution that home care aides make in providing personal care services to home care

patients. The role of the home care aide is integral to providing care to elderly or disabled clients who need more extensive personal and home care than family or friends can provide. NAHC joins the home care industry in applauding its home care aides and their commitment to providing quality and compassionate care. There are many reasons to support the good work of home care and providers during November. Home health care is regarded as the most viable solution for providing long-term care to this country’s growing elderly population. Delta County Memorial Hospital is pleased to recognize the

staff of Delta Montrose Home Health during National Home Care Month this November.

CranioSacral Therapy is effective in relieving a variety of pain, illness By Pat Sunderland Managing Editor

Rhonda McCormick, a nationally certified massage therapist at the Sunflower Room, is offering CranioSacral Therapy (CST), a light-touch approach which will release tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve health and performance. A graduate of Delta-Montrose Technical College, McCormick obtained additional training through Upledger Institute to obtain certification in CranioSacral Therapy. CST therapy targets the craniosacral system — the soft tis-

Kick the habit with the product right for you Whether you smoke three cigarettes or three packs of cigarettes a day, kicking the habit is difficult. Various nicotine replacement products are on the market to make quitting easier. But which product is right for you? Experts from The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center can help. “Quitting smoking is a wonderful thing to do for yourself and your loved ones, but it can be really hard without help,” said Jennifer Irvin Vidrine, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Health Disparities Research at M. D. Anderson. “A great way to reduce withdrawal symptoms while you are trying to quit is to use some sort of nicotine replacement therapy.” Quitting smoking is one of the absolute most important things you can do to improve your health. It significantly reduces your risks for cancer and other

diseases, such as heart and lung disease. M. D. Anderson experts share the lowdown on nicotine replacement products. Patches The patch gives you a steady stream of nicotine that helps cut down on the highs and lows of nicotine withdrawal. Side effects: Some people with sensitive skin can develop a skin rash when using this product. Moving it to a different spot on your body each day usually helps. Gum Gum is a great way to keep your mouth busy without a cigarette. It gives you small doses of nicotine when you need it. Gum and lozenges also are good for people who are habitual about when they smoke cigarettes. Side effects: The most common problem with the gum is that it is often misused. You need to chew the gum, tuck it between your cheek and gum, and let it sit for a while. If you don’t chew as directed, your body won’t get the full dose of nicotine. Lozenges Lozenges came onto the market after the gum to help people who have trouble using the gum correctly. It is great for habitual smokers to indulge in while having a cup of coffee or to soothe themselves during a stressful

moment. It also is for people who aren’t thrilled about the idea of having to tuck the gum between their gum and cheek, which can leave an unsightly bulge. Side effects: Although easier to use than the gum, the lozenge can leave a film in the mouth. It also can leave users with stale breath. Nasal Spray The nasal spray is like many sprays you might use for a runny nose or allergies. With the gum or lozenge, what you eat or drink can affect the amount of nicotine you get. The nasal spray is a single shot of nicotine. It works faster than the gum or lozenge, and unlike the patch, it can be used exactly when your craving hits. Side effects: The nasal spray can sting the inside of your nose. It also is just one shot, so if you smoke because you like the habit, this isn’t the tool for you. Inhalers Inhalers work fast like the nasal spray and certainly faster than the gum and lozenge. Like an asthma inhaler, you put it to your mouth and breathe deeply. Like nasal spray, inhalers gives you a measured amount of nicotine the instant you need it, but, it isn’t quite as harsh as the nasal spray. Side effects: The biggest trouble with the inhaler is that

it is impractical or awkward to use in real life. Using the inhaler in social situations can be awkward, if not alarming, for your company. It also is fairly bulky to carry around. A Nicotine Replace Product for Every Personality “You really can’t go wrong with any nicotine replacement therapy,” said Damon J. Vidrine, Dr.P.H., assistant professor in the Department of Behavioral Science at M. D. Anderson. “I recommend, however, trying the patch first. The patch delivers a steady, low-dose stream of nicotine to your system that reduces cravings.” While you can buy the gum, lozenge and patch over-thecounter at your local drugstore or supermarket, you need a prescription from your doctor to get the inhaler or nasal spray. Reaching Your Goal “To help yourself quit, I strongly recommend a nicotine replacement product in combination with counseling,” Jennifer Vidrine said. Although going to see a private counselor might be impossible because of time or money, there are several free smoking quit lines such as 1-800QUIT NOW (American Cancer Society) and 1-877-44U-QUIT (National Cancer Institute). “Your goal should be complete cessation,” Damon Vidrine said. “It shouldn’t be just to cut back. This can be difficult, but nicotine replacement products, non-nicotine medications, and counseling really do help people who want to quit.” Read more about smoking cessation and get linked to M. D. Anderson tobacco cessation studies, some of which offer free treatment methods, at www. mdanderson.org/focused.

Delta defense shines in win

Panthers deal D’Evelyn 14-6 loss in 3A By Wayne Crick DCI Sports Writer

For the first time since the late 1990’s, the Delta Panthers have played in a post-season football game. Not only have they played in this year’s opening round of the Class 3A state playoffs, they won the contest and enter second-round play this Saturday. Delta (number nine seed) faced the number eight D’Evelyn Jaguars in Denver on Saturday and held on for a tough 14-6 victory. All the scoring in this game came in the opening period of action. D’Evelyn received the opening kickoff and promptly put up the game’s first points on a 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. The extra point was

blocked leaving the Jaguars with a 6-0 lead with over 11 minutes left in the quarter. Delta’s Phillip Decker took the ensuing kickoff from D’Evelyn and returned it to the Jaguar’s 33-yard line. The Panthers turned the ball over on downs after moving the ball to the D’Evelyn 24. After a two-yard gain on their first play, the Jaguars turned the ball over to Delta when Gene White intercepted his first of two passes in the game. The Panthers turned the ball over to D’Evelyn on downs for the second straight time after beginning on the Jaguar’s 29 and eventually giving it up on the 30 following a penalty. D’Evelyn began their next

possession with a penalty moving the ball back near the 20yard line. On the next play, Chad Cromwell scooped up a Jaguar fumble and raced 20 yards to give Delta their first points of the game. An Ethan Kraai extra point kick made the score 7-6 with 6:56 left in the opening period. The Jaguars were ineffective with their fourth possession and punted the ball back to Delta. The Panthers returned the ball to D’Evelyn’s 22 to begin their next series of plays. Robert Simpson was on the receiving end of an Austin Watson pass that covered eight yards to complete the 22-yard touchdown drive. The drive took four plays. After Kraai’s PAT kick,

the Panthers held a 14-6 lead. D’Evelyn took the ball inside the Panthers’ 35 before coughing up the football on a fumble. Ernie Baier pounced on the ball to help Delta’s defense thwart a Jaguar’s potential score. In the second quarter, Garrett Pope provided the Panthers with their fourth turnover on an interception. The two teams entered halftime with the Panthers holding onto their narrow 14-6 lead. Delta had the ball to begin second half play but went threeand-out on their first possession. The Jaguars took the ball at their own 40 to begin their first series in the second half. Delta’s lead looked to be in jeopardy as D’Evelyn marched 50 yards on eight plays down to

the Panthers’ 10-yard line. On the next play, White intercepted his second pass of the game at Delta’s five-yard line. The Panthers had to punt the ball away after gaining just six yards in three plays. D’Evelyn returned the ball back to Delta’s 28 where they appeared to have a decided advantage to begin their next possession. Delta’s defense rose to the occasion once again as Decker intercepted an errant Jaguars’ pass to set the Panthers up on their own 25 for its next possession. Another strong defensive stand by the Jaguars forced Delta to punt the ball away after running just three plays. D’Evelyn began their next series on their own 30. The Jag-

uars ran four plays before the third quarter expired with Delta leading 14-6. The Jaguars used 10 plays to begin the final quarter and moved the ball from their own 45 all the way down to Delta’s oneyard line. While in the shotgun formation, D’Evelyn’s center snapped the ball to an unsuspecting quarterback. The ball rolled all the way back to the Jaguar’s 20-yard line. On the next play, Baier sacked D’Evelyn’s qarterback for an eight-yard loss where Delta took over on downs at their own 28-yard line. As the fourth quarter wound down, Nolan Britain secured the Panthers’ victory with an interception. Watson ended the game with a kneel-down to give Delta a 14-6 win.

Bulldogs fall to Badgers in first round of playoffs By Randy Sunderland General Manager

Although the weather was cold and windy, the action was hot and heavy at Gaskill Field in Limon in the quarterfinal gridiron battle between the Limon Badgers and Hotchkiss Bulldogs. The Bulldogs were unable to do anything with their opening possession of the game. After punting to Limon, the Badgers turned their first possession into a sustained drive and touchdown. With a successful two-point converson, Limon took the early lead 8-0. Showing their discipline earned through an undefeated season, the well-coached Bulldogs responded with a quick touchdown of their own. Tyler Hanson took a quick pitch from quarterback Ryan Spor around the right side for a 25 yard scoring run. Spor hit Hanson for the

two-point conversion on a quick slant to tie up the game at 10:55 of the first quarter. It became obvious these two teams were evenly matched, and that mistakes would play a big role in the outcome on a chilly, gray day. The Bulldog defense appeared for that big mistake when they knocked the ball loose as Limon running back Brett Schmidt swept to the left, but the Badgers emerged from the scrum with the ball. Facing a 3rd and 12 at the Hotchkiss 30 yard line, Badger quarterback Matt Brown lobbed the ball into corner of the endzone, where Coltyn Beedy run under the ball for a surprising score. The PAT kick went wide, giving Limon a 14-8 lead midway through the second quarter. The score energized the Badger defense, and the Bulldogs went 3 and out. However, the swarming Bulldog defense created another opportunity as they knocked the ball free again. This time the Bulldogs recovered at the 33 yard line to give their offense a short field with about four minutes left in the half. With a balanced running and throwing attack, the Bulldogs efficiently moved in for a touchdown. With 2:27 left in the first half, Spor scored from one yard out on a quarterback keeper back up the middle. The PAT kick was wide right, so the game remained tied at 14-14. The Badgers responded by taking the ball back down the field and were threatening to retake the lead in the closing minutes of the half, but Ryan Spor stepped in front of another long pass towards the endzone and came down with an interception. With 1:11 showing on the clock, the Bulldogs mounted an exciting drive back up the field. Spor was effective with quick hitting sideline routes and quickly moved the Bulldogs into stiking distance. With nine seconds on the clock, Spor hit Pat

Sullivan from 28 yards out. With the PAT kick by Sullivan, the Bulldogs went into the locker room up 21-14. The Badgers took the second half kickoff and were unable to do much with the ball. But momentum shifted their way on the punt. As the ball rolled towards the endzone, it bounced into an official and stopped at the twoyard line. Because the officials are “part” of the field, the play stood and the Bulldogs were pinned deep in their own territory. Unable to gain the first down, the Bulldogs punted back to Limon to give the Badgers the ball back at the 38. The Bulldog defense put up a valiant effort to keep the Badgers out of the endzone, but slowly and surely Limon pushed their way in to score to tie things up at 21-21 with 4:01 left in the third quarter. Momentum continued to roll Limon’s way when on the next Hotchkiss possession Limon’s Coltyn Beedy jumped a slant route to intercept a Spor pass and return it to the Bulldog 10 yard line. Three plays later Badger quarterback Matt Brown hit Jason Brown in the end zone to put Limon back on top at 28-21 with 1:38 left in the third quarter. Coach Zac Lemon worked hard along the sidelines to rally his team, and the Bulldogs responded by mounting a sustained drive to the end zone. Hotchkiss appeared to tie the game when Jacobe Galley skampered across the goal line after Spor hit him with a quick pass to the left flat. A holding penalty nullified the touchdown and send the Bulldogs all the way out to the 20. On fourth and goal at the 11, the Badger defense stopped the Bulldogs to preserve their 28-21 lead with just over eight minutes left in the game. Taking over on downs, the Limon running game started

grinding out the clock as the Badgers moved the ball past midfield. The Bulldogs defense rallied and appeared to stop the Badgers on third and long with time left for the Hotchkiss offense to try to tie things up. Unfortunately, a Bulldog mistake proved costly. A personal foul away from the play gave Limon new life with a first down. Two plays later the Bulldog defense faltered and Badger quarterback Brown broke free for a 42-yard scoring run. Down 35-21 with 4:40 left in the game, the Bulldogs faced a stiff challenge. And once again the team showed great character as they mounted another terrific drive. In two minutes the Bulldogs drove down and scored to make the score 35-28. With everyone on the edge of their seats, the Bulldogs attempted an onside kick with less than three minutes left in the game. Pat Sullivan got a good bounce with his kickoff but the Badgers

were able to cover the ball, and ultimately run out the clock to secure the 35-28 win. The Bulldogs walked off Gaskill Field Saturday afternoon to a rousing ovation from the many Hotchkiss fans who braved the winter weather to travel to Limon. They had been treated to an outstanding playoff battle where their Bulldogs went toeto-toe with a good Limon team and coming within a play or two of advancing to the 1A football semifinal matchup against Yuma. The Hotchkiss offense had a big day against the Badgers, with 342 total yards. Ryan Spor was 19 of 23 passes for 206 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Pat Sullivan was the top receiver with seven catches for 90 yards and a touchdown. Gage Grimmett caught four for 25 yards. Also making catches were Tyler Handson, Jaime Rodriguez, Dakota Coats and Steven Floyd.

The Bulldog ground game was also effective with 136 total yards. Tyler Hanson carried the ball 14 times for 94 yards, and scored two touchdowns. Jaime Rodriguez had eight carries for 23 yards, Ryan Spor gained 10 yards on four carries and scored a touchdown. Jacobe Galley had three carries for nine yards. On the defensive side of the ball, Jake Richards lead the team with eight tackles. Kyle O’Brien also had a big day with seven tackles, including two sacks. Jacobe Galley, Kyle Douglass and Conner Beard also tallied seven tackles each. Steven Floyd was credited with six tackles. Tyler Hanson had five tackles, Gage Grimmett had four, and Ryan Spor had three tackles and an interception. Pat Sullivan and Dakota Coats each had three tackles. Braeden Horton tallied one tackle. The Bulldogs ended their 2009 season with 10 wins and one loss.

After the recent destruction of Delta’s Salvation Army store, the staff at Devil’s Thumb felt they should do something to help the new store get on its feet. A collection center was established in the Devil’s Thumb clubhouse to collect useable items for the new store located at Third and Meeker in Delta. Part of Captain Wilson’s duties is to oversee the Salvation Army Stores in Delta and Montrose. Delta’s new store is opreated with the assistance of six volunteers who work at various times. With the Holiday Season approaching, Wilson notes there is always a need for more volunteers for those who are interested.

“Sports and Community” Coach Miller’s Fitness Column was taken out of last week’s edition of the Delta County Independent at the last minute. His column, from last week, appears in today’s edition. Some minor adjustments have been made to Mr. Miller’s original statements. What a year can make for our high school sport teams. We had three local football teams, from thre different classifications (1A, 2A, and 3A) who played in the state playoffs. Congrats to Coaches at Delta, Olathe and Hotchkiss High. How do sports affect rural and even urban communities? Our instincts as human beings to compete reach back to our linear descendents. I‘m talking back to cavemen, the Native Americans and early mountain men during their annual rendevous

with competitions to determine who was bigger, faster and stronger long before those terms were even around. We should promote sports and athletics to ourselves and our children. Pass the baton down the evolutionary line. There is a “buzz” everywhere in our county about the football teams’ success at Delta, Hotchkiss and of course Olathe. And there down right should be. It’s great for the younger kids to see these guys do well and have that community involvement. It creates camaraderie and brings neighbors together for the same reason, something we don’t have a lot of these days. Teach strong minds and bodies, and recognize our sports writers, coaches, fitness trainers, athletes, and each other. Get out and support your local sport teams and have a hot dog or two!

Paonia peewee team captures second straight championship Paonia Eagles 5th and 6th grade PeeWee Football team concluded its season on Sunday Nov. 8. The Eagles defeated the Montrose Indians in a hard fought game by a score of 14–0 to take the Montrose Youth League “Superbowl” Championship for the second consecutive year. The Eagles ended the season with 10 wins and one loss. The Eagles got to the championship game by defeating the Cedaredge Bruins in a memorable quarterfinal “snow bowl” game and the Delta Bobcats in a thrilling semifinal game that went to overtime before the Eagles prevailed. The Eagles advanced to the final championship game hosted by the top seeded Montrose Indians in Montrose. Paonia has competed in the Montrose Youth League for 11 years and has played for the championship trophy only twice. This year’s team was characterized by a dominating defense that only allowed 71 points through 11 games and no offensive touchdown in the final four games including the playoffs. The Eagles also had a potent office, scoring 275 points this season. The team’s coaches praised the player’s dedication,

heart, hard work ethic and neverquit attitude that led to such a successful season. Head coach Adam P. Mendoza wishes to thank his group of excellent assistant coaches; Chris Solaas, Jeff Walters, Mike Hillman and Josh Solaas for their dedication and abilities that brought out the best of their players. “They are the best group of assistant coaches any head coach

Fumble! Hotchkiss’ Tyler Hanson dives to recover a fumble during first half action Satureday against Limon. Hotchkiss came up on the losing end of the 35-28 contest, ending their season.

Hotchkiss junior Ryan Spor and an unidentified Bulldog teamed up to stop the Limon runner from getting to the end zone. The Bulldogs lost the 1A quarterfinal game to Limon by the score of 28-35, their first — and last — loss of a 10-1 season.

COLORADO ORDINANCE NO. 2009-3 AN ORDINANCE IMPOSING A TEMPORARY MORATORIUM ON THE SUBMISSION, ACCEPTANCE, PROCESSING, AND APPROVAL OF ANY APPLICATION FOR A PERMIT OR LICENSE RELATED TO THE OPERATION OF A BUSINESS THAT SELLS MEDICAL MARIJUANA WITHIN THE TOWN OF HOTCHKISS, COLORADO, PURSUANT TO THE AUTHORITY GRANTED BY ARTICLE 18, SECTION 14 OF THE COLORADO CONSTITUTION; DIRECTING THE PROMPT INVESTIGATION OF THE TOWN'S REGULATORY AUTHORITY OVER SUCH BUSINESSES; DECLARING THE INTENTION OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES TO CONSIDER THE ADOPTION OF APPROPRIATE TOWN REGULATIONS WITH RESPECT TO SUCH BUSINESSES IF PERMITTED BY LAW; AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY WHEREAS, in the November 2000 general election, the voters of the State of Colorado adopted Amendment 20 to the Colorado Constitution ("Article XVIII Section 14") which authorizes and limits the sale of medical marijuana for use in the treatment of debilitating medical conditions; and WHEREAS, the Board of Trustees has been made aware that surrounding municipalities and staff have received inquiries from persons that are interested in opening and operating businesses that would offer medical marijuana for sale; and WHEREAS, the Town has no current land use or business regulation governing the operation of businesses or cooperatives that offer medical marijuana for sale and/or distribution ("Medical Marijuana Dispensaries"); and WHEREAS, the imposition of a two hundred (200) day moratorium on the submission, acceptance, processing, and approval of all applications for Town permits and licenses relating to the operation of Medical Marijuana Dispensaries will allow the Town staff and the Board of Trustees to investigate the Town's ability to regulate such businesses, and to develop and implement any appropriate regulations; and WHEREAS, a two hundred (200) day moratorium is a reasonable length of time and no longer than necessary for the Town to properly investigate, develop, and, if appropriate, adopt and implement any regulations with respect to Medical Marijuana Dispensaries; and

WHEREAS, proprietors of Medical Marijuana Dispensaries will not be unduly prejudiced by the imposition of such moratorium. THEREFORE BE IT ORDAINED BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE TOWN OF HOTCHKISS, COLORADO, THAT: SECTION 1. FINDINGS AND INTENT. The above and foregoing recitals are incorporated herein by reference and adopted as findings and determinations of the Board of Trustees of the Town of Hotchkiss, Colorado. SECTION 2. IMPOSITION OF TEMPORARY MORATORIUM ON APPLICATIONS FOR PERMITS AND LICENSES RELATED TO BUSINESSES THAT SELL MEDICAL MARIJUANA. Upon the adoption of this Ordinance a moratorium is imposed upon the submission, acceptance, processing, and approval of all applications for permits and licenses by the Town of Hotchkiss, Colorado, related to a Medical Marijuana Dispensary. The Town staff and the Town of Hotchkiss Planning Commission are directed to refuse to accept for filing, and not to process or review, any such new applications for such businesses during the moratorium period. SECTION 3. STAFF TO INVESTIGATE AND PREPARE PROPOSED REGULATIONS. Before the expiration of the moratorium imposed by this Ordinance the Town staff, working with the Town Attorney, shall prepare appropriate regulations for Medical Marijuana for consideration by the Board of Trustees. SECTION 4. POLICE POWER FINDING. The Board of Trustees hereby finds, determines, and declares that this Ordinance is necessary and proper to provide for the safety, preserve the health, promote the prosperity, and improve the order, comfort and convenience of the town of Hotchkiss and the inhabitants thereof. Section 5. Authority. The Board of Trustees hereby finds, determines and declares that it has the power to adopt this Ordinance pursuant to: (i) the Local Government Land Use Control Enabling Act, Article 20 of Title 29, C.R.S.; (ii) Part 3 of Article 23 of Title 31, C.R.S. (concerning municipal zoning powers); (iii) Section 31-15-103, C.R.S. (concerning municipal police powers); (iv) Section 31-15-401, C.R.S. (concerning municipal police powers); and (v) Section 31-15-501 (concerning municipal power to regulate businesses). SECTION 6. EMERGENCY DECLARED; EFFECTIVE DATE; EXPIRATION. The Board finds, determines and declares that passage of this Ordinance is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety in order to prevent a person from filing an application for a Town permit or license relating to the operation of a Medical Marijuana Dispensary until the Town has had a reasonable opportunity to determine: (i) the extent of the Town's regulatory authority over such businesses; and (ii) what regulations, if any, should be imposed by the Town upon such businesses. Failure to immediately impose the moratorium provided for in this Ordinance will potentially allow acquisition of certain rights with respect to Medical Marijuana Dispensaries before the Town has had the reasonable opportunity to consider appropriate regulations thereof. The Board of Trustees

further determines that the adoption of this Ordinance as an emergency ordinance is in the best interest of the citizens of the Town of Hotchkiss. This Ordinance shall be effective upon adoption. The moratorium imposed by this Ordinance shall commence as of the date of the adoption of this Ordinance, and shall expire two hundred (200) days thereafter, unless repealed prior to that date.

Great way to see Colorado BARB CHURCHLEY AND FRIENDS edge their way along the “Knife’s Edge” as they work towards the summit of Capitol Peak in August. The climb capped off a long term goal of summiting all 58 of Colorado’s Fourteeners — peaks higher than 14,000 — by age 58.

Story by Bob Borchardt Photos submitted

W

hen asked why he climbed Mount Everest, British mountaineer George Mallory answered, “Because it’s there.” His response has become the standard cliché often used by modern day mountain climbers. But for Cedaredge resident Barbara (Barb to her friends) Churchley, the answer is much different. On Aug. 29, Barb climbed Colorado’s Capitol Peak (14,130’ elevation), fulfilling her commitment to climb all 58 of Colorado’s Fourteeners — mountains 14,000 or higher. Not your typical “Southern Belle,” Barb was born in Murfreesboro, Tenn., in 1951. She graduated from Murfreesboro’s Central High School, before attending the University of Colorado-Denver in the early 1990s, where she earned a BA in accounting. She met her husband, Dick, while working for Price Waterhouse and Co. The two were soon married, lived in Evergreen before moving to Cedaredge five years ago. Since moving to Cedaredge, she has become a nationally recognized “en plen-aire” artist. Barb’s artistic talents and her passion for the outdoors has taken her around the world and, finally to the summit of all of Colorado’s famous “Fourteeners.” No simple feat by any measure, especially for someone who claims to have a “lazy streak.” Early on in life, Barb set a goal for every decade of her life. When she was young she took up rock climbing, ice climbing, technical climbing and whitewater canoeing. In her thirties, she ran her first marathon. In her forties, she learned to scuba dive and, at age 50, Barb climbed the highest peak in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. In 1934, Mary Cronin became the first woman, and only the fourth person, to climb all of Colorado Fourteeners. Like all high mountain peaks, Colorado’s Fourteeners, no matter how easy they might seem, are serious undertakings, subject to unpredictable and severe weather year round, including powerful thunderstorms accompanied by violent lightning; large snowfields, ice, rocks,

boulders, loose “scree” and talus slopes. In the summer of 1981, Barb climbed her first Colorado Fourteener, Mount Shavano. Little did she know that she was beginning a long journey, following in Cronin’s footsteps, nor that 20 years later, in summer of 2001 at age 50, she would begin preparing for her climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro by climbing Mount Bierstadt and then eight more of Colorado’s Fourteeners. The climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro was put off until 2002, due to the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center. It was also the time that Barb made a commitment to herself to climb all 58 of Colorado’s Fourteeners by the time she was 58. She accomplished this “lofty” goal this year in August, chronicling each

climb with a personal journal and photographs. When asked “why?” Barb answered, “What better way to see Colorado? It’s a good way to stay in shape, a great way to see the world ... and girls just want to have fun.” And though she has been known to climb alone, she doesn’t recommend it. Instead, she prefers to climb with a partner, especially Dick, her husband and, “my biggest supporter”; her son Derek Temple; Kathy Deane, a “dear friend” with whom she has climbed 22 of Colorado’s Fourteeners — including Capitol Peak. When Derek was 13 he began technical rock climbing with his mom, has climbed the Grand Tetons with her, and five of the Colorado Fourteeners.

“It’s just a lot of fun to see the joy on her face,” he smiled. But it was while crossing the “Knife’s Edge” on Capitol Peak that he became concerned for her safety. He explained, “You’re exposed, the holds are not great and it’s no place to make a mistake.” The two have also hiked the famous “Milford Track” in New Zealand. Derek said his mom had to hang on to his pack “just to keep from being blown off the trail.” Along with “bagging” all of Colorado’s Fourteeners, Barb has visited all of the seven continents of the world; climbed the Grand Tetons (Wyoming), the Matterhorn (Switzerland), Mauna Kea (Hawaii), the mountains of Austria; and has spent time in the jungles of Brazil pursuing another one of her passions — bird watching. When asked, Barb said that for her, the easiest of Colorado’s Fourteeners to climb was Mount Sherman; the hardest was Kiener’s Route on Long’s Peak. But her favorites are Capitol Peak (because it was the last), the Maroon Bells traverse and Crestone Needle in that order. Barb, who had at one point thought of giving up, said, “It’s a relief to have them finished ... I do know that I could never have achieved my goal without the help of family and friends. The universe sent a lot of guardian angels my way.” Barb said that some of the things she has learned climbing mountains are, “Take care of yourself. Go prepared, have a map, know your route and do not get separated from your partners.” “I’ve had a fabulous life,” she exclaimed. “Life is as exciting and adventurous as you want it to be. Everyone needs to find some time that makes them really feel alive, and it doesn’t have to be on a mountain top or in the wilderness.” She concluded her journal, “By the way, I now have become friends with this great state I live in. I have discovered how special it is, and how blessed I am to live here.” So what’s next for this amazing lady? Barb is toying with the idea of running a marathon on every continent, hiking the Colorado Trail, climbing the Centennial Peaks and visiting some of the more remote areas of the United States.

Derek, Barb and Dick.
