Landmanagement campus urged

Taking the edge off

Local leaders lobby USFS to consider involvement Will Shoemaker Times Editor

Serious competition wasn’t the sole focus at this past weekend’s Colorado Summer Club state swim meet in Gunnison. Seen here, Gunnison’s Ashlynd Harris takes part in a friendly contest during Saturday’s “Family Fun Night.” The festivities started with a barbecue and were followed by a host of water-related contests.

A renewed push for a long-envisioned land-management campus in Gunnison has emerged as two federal agencies are considering plans for their future. The City of Gunnison and Gunnison County have both sent letters to the Rocky Mountain Regional Office of the U.S. Forest Service in recent months, advocating for a one-stop shop for visitors along Hwy. 50, which could simultaneously offer operational efficiencies for the land-management agencies. The county’s letter — and an early version considered by the city — urged regional leaders of the Forest Service to consider the concept, as opposed to forging ahead with plans for renovating the current Gunnison Ranger District headquarters in Gunnison. It’s envisioned that the campus — potentially involving numerous federal agencies with offices in and around Gunnison — would also incorporate Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s (CPW) plans for an area office, Campus A8

New PD, dispatch pursued jointly Meth probe City leaders to combine phases of project, eye DOLA funds Will Shoemaker Times Editor

A new headquarters for the Gunnison Police Department on land purchased by the city in May was originally planned as a down-the-road project. That’s changed. City Council agreed informally Tuesday to combine plans for a new dispatch center with a vision for new police headquarters.

It was previously planned that the Police Department would be built as an addition to the communications center, with shared spaces between the two departments. The decision to combine the two phases is the result of a realization that the entire project could likely be funded in large part through a state grant. But it would mean that new digs for dispatch would be postponed until next building season. City leaders previously hoped to break ground on the dispatch portion of the project this year. City Manager Ken Coleman indicated that representatives from the

state Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) recently visited the city and took a preliminary look at plans for the project. “They looked at ours and felt that this was probably one of the more concrete projects as far as where we are with planning, to be proposed for the next round of funding,” he said.

Despite concern about the precedent that a local-government bailout sets, the Gunnison County Commissioners have contributed the largest sum toward alleviating an $89,000 shortfall for this coming winter tourism season’s flight program. The commissioners opted Tuesday to pony up $30,000 to help the Gunnison Valley Rural Transportation Authority (RTA) meet minimum revenue guaran-

tees (MRG) for the 2012-13 winter season. MRGs are split annually by the RTA and Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) to entice the airlines to fly here, by covering their operating losses.

Two Gunnison men accused of distributing the drug Will Shoemaker Times Editor

The plan for this coming winter season will bring a similar level of service as seen this past season on United Airlines from Houston and American Airlines from Dallas. American Airlines’ MRGs for this coming season are covered. But the MRGs for United flights from Houston will cost $353,000. RTA has committed $220,000 towards that, and CBMR has agreed to forward a refund from last year’s service, totalling $44,000, toward the bill. That leaves the $89,000 deficit, for which RTA board members — in an unprecedented move — this year elected to appeal to local governments

A months-long investigation involving Gunnison Police, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) resulted last week in the arrest of two Gunnison men, accused of dealing methamphetamine. A third Gunnison man also suspected of being involved in Kloeppel trafficking the drug is still being sought. Kenneth Kloeppel, 60, was arrested July 31 on suspicion of distributing a schedule-II drug, methamphetamine. Kloeppel was arrested at his residence, 600 N. Colorado St., without incident. The next day, Feliciano Diaz, 38, was arrested at his residence, 1201 W. Tomichi Ave., on the Diaz same charge. Distribution of a schedule-II drug is a Class 3 felony. The arrests were made after several months of investigation, according to a prepared statement from

Briefs Possible lion sighting creates scare for local father, daughter The call from dispatch sounded like a nightmare. A man and his daughter reported that they were pinned inside a bathroom by a mountain lion, and the lion had already eaten their dog. It was later determined the local father and his young daughter were camping at the Lake Fork Campground — on the south side of Blue Mesa Reservoir, only accessible by boat — when their small dog disappeared and soon after they spotted what they thought to be a mountain lion. The pair took refuge in a restroom at the campsite, where cellular service allowed them to phone for help. National Parks Service (NPS) officers were first to arrive on scene. But, apparently, imaginations were running slightly wild. Upon investigation, including the use of hounds trained to sniff out big cats, Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers were not able to locate any sign of a mountain lion. “The dog did alert to something — possibly a bobcat, maybe a lion, but there was no evidence to show what it was,” said Area Wildlife Manager J Wenum. He added that wildlife officers were able to locate the family’s dog. It was unharmed. Still, NPS opted to close the Lake Fork Campground temporarirly out of precaution. It is scheduled to re-open today.

CBMR hosting open house over master plan C re s t e d B u t t e M o u n t a i n Resort (CBMR) officials are planning an open house next week over the final draft of an updated master development plan (MDP). The open house is planned for Wednesday, Aug. 15, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at Butte 66 at the base of Crested Butte Mountain. The draft MDP document includes: a new summer biking and hiking trails plan, existing lift and facility improvements and a proposed expansion of lift-served skiing on the eastern side of the mountain in the Teocalli drainage. The final document is expected to be made available for public review following the open house. CBMR hopes to submit the updated MDP to the U.S. Forest Service in coming weeks.

Four unrelated instances of possible child abuse have been identified by Gunnison Police in the past two weeks, though officers say that the incidents do not appear to point to a trend. T h re e o f t h e i n c i d e n t s involved alcohol or drugs. Last Thursday, a Brighton woman was arrested at Gunnison Valley Hospital following an overnight stay there. JC Hardison, 42, is accused of driving under the influence of drugs. Authorities determined that she was in no condition to have driven herself to the hospital the previous day after taking prescription medication. Hardison’s 14-year-old daughter was in the vehicle with her at the time, resulting in an additional child abuse allegation. Gunnison Police Chief Keith Robinson declined to name the

50 and New York Avenue. The unharmed children were reportedly contacted by passersby, who remained with them until officers arrived. Their mother was located at her residence “and had not missed the children,� according to a police report. The case was referred to Social Services. A Gunnison man suspected of dealing methamphetamine is also accused of child abuse after the drug was found in close proximity to children at his residence. Feliciano Diaz, 38, was arrested Aug. 1. Chief Robinson indicated that the recent incidents don’t appear to be signaling a trend of more cases of child abuse taking place in the community. “I don’t think it’s any more than it has been,� he said. “I also think that people are maybe a little more conscious of kids.�

drug that Hardison had taken. He said, however, that “it would impair her ability to drive.� Hardison, who was camping with her family in the Gunnisonarea last week, reportedly had a prescription to take the drug, said Robinson. Her arrest was “based on her condition at the hospital and information provided by other people who had been in contact with her, as well as the officer’s observations,� he added. In a separate incident July 28, officers responded to a noise Hardison complaint on North Colorado Street, where they found three intoxicated teenagers who had been left to care for a 2-year-old child. Robinson said that the case remains under investigation and it has yet to be determined whether charges against the parents of the 2-year-old will be pursued. Then, this past Sunday, officers were notified of two children, ages 3 and 5, in the street near the intersection of Hwy.

Murder trial moved to January Defense cites difficulty preparing in time Will Shoemaker Times Editor

The murder trial of a Texas man accused of killing his wife near Lake City four years ago will not take place next month in Gunnison as originally planned. District Court Judge J. Steven Patrick ordered July 10 that the trial — expected to take as long as five weeks — be moved to a later date. That was after prosecutors endorsed more than 130 witnesses to testify in the case, and defense attorneys raised concerns about their ability to prepare in time for the trial. The trial is now scheduled to begin Jan. 7 in Gunnison. Frederick Mueller, 50, was arrest-

ed this past February at his business outside San Angelo, Texas. He is accused of first-degree murder in the death of his wife, Leslie Mueller. A retired San Angelo doctor, Leslie Mueller was found dead in Cottonwood Creek in rural Hinsdale County on May 3, 2008. Her death was previously purported to be the result of a hiking accident. Frederick Mueller has stated that his wife fell off an approximately 20-foot cliff, landed on her head Mueller and shoulders and was carried downstream by the current. However, Montrosebased forensic pathologist Michael Benziger testified earlier this year during a preliminary hearing that he had determined the cause of Leslie Mueller’s death to be drowning, and that her injuries were not

DOLA funds public projects throughout Colorado with energy impact assistance grants — revenue which comes from resource extraction companies. The city purchased property at the corner of Bidwell Avenue and Ninth Street in late-May as the new home for the communications center, which provides emergency dispatch services for Gunnison and Hinsdale counties. The city acts as a fiscal agent for dispatch, and controls the purse strings for the center’s operations through the communications fund — an enterprise fund within the city budget, which receives money f ro m e m e rg e n c y re s p o n s e agencies throughout the county. City leaders for years had sought out a site to relocate dispatch, which is currently housed in the basement of the

County Courthouse. Potential damage to electrical equipment from flooding and a lack of compliance with the Americans with Disability Act has long been cause for concern by city leaders. Plans to co-locate dispatch with the county’s new jail never came to fruition. The vacant lot cost the city about $200,000, which was paid out of the general fund. Construction and furnishing the combined dispatch and police building is expected to cost about $1.1 million, said Coleman. About $200,000 from the communications fund reserves would go toward the price tag. Coleman indicated that the city would likely apply for about $500,000 from DOLA and the remainder could be budgeted for 2013. “That’s why we’re suggesting, if we can put this out as a spring project, it fits nice-

He told City Council Tuesday that the DEA and CBI both offered to help with that investigation. “We’ve been running for the last several months some drug surveillance and

investigations,” he said. Robinson said that a warranted search of Diaz’ residence turned up more than a pound of methamphetamine. Additionally, an arrest warrant for Kloeppel’s son, Karl Kloeppel, 27, is outstanding. The police report indicates that search warrants were executed on a residence and vehicle belonging to Karl Kloeppel.

Department’s current space in City Hall when the project is completed. “We’ll evaluate that once this becomes a reality,” said Coleman. (Will Shoemaker can be contacted at 970.641.1414 or editor@gunnisontimes.com)

Diaz is also accused of child abuse (see related article), because the drugs were found in close proximity to children at his residence. Robinson said that the investigation leading to the two arrests last week has come to a close. “They’re not the only ones out there, but these were the two we were able to generate information on,” he said. (Will Shoemaker can be contacted at 970.641.1414 or editor@gunnisontimes.com)

Defense attorney Mike DeGuerin, of Houston, Texas, voiced concern about the large number of witnesses that the prosecution had endorsed — more than 130, including 23 experts. He expressed further concern about evidence relating to the case — called ”discovery” — that had yet to be provided by prosecutors. “As noted in their recent motions, they are concerned as to information they still do not have and, should the people call that many witnesses, whether trial can be completed in the 20 days presently allotted,” Judge Patrick stated about the defense’s concerns in a court order. On the other hand, prosecutors indicated that the list of witnesses they’ve endorsed is more broad than the number who will actually testify at trial, and that any discovery that has yet to be provided is in process. Prosecutors also raised concern that defense attorneys had failed to meet the deadline for endorsement of witnesses previously imposed by the court. As a result of the trial date being postponed, Mueller waived his right to speedy trial. He is currently being held without bond in the Gunnison County jail.

Fire season blazes on, despite recent moisture Laura Anderson Times Staff Writer

The day after Stage 1 fire restrictions were lifted in unincorporated Gunnison County and a week after bans were removed from national forest lands, fire protection agencies fought to contain a fire near Cabin Creek, northeast of Gunnison. The Cabin Creek fire was caused by a lightning strike last Wednesday, Aug. 1, resulting in smoke that could be seen from the City of Gunnison. According to Gunnison Fire Marshal Dennis Spritzer, about 83 acres were burned. As of Tuesday, the fire was still burning, but was fully contained and being monitored by local fire agencies. The blaze burned aspen stands, grasslands and sage. Lightning strikes have caused a number of fire scares in the past week in Gunnison County. According to a report Monday, the Gunnison Sheriff’s Office investigated two reported smoke plumes on Aug. 1, and were dispatched to a small fire near the Oxbow mine near Somerset on Aug. 2. None of those incidents resulted in serious blazes. Experts say that despite recent moisture, wildfire season is still in full swing, and this time of year, lightning is the main threat. Lightning-sparked fires not as prevalent locally Lightning strikes and hot, dry summers seem to go hand and hand. Despite recent lightning strikes locally, Gunnison County’s skies tend to be less active than its western neighbors. Chris Barth, spokesman for the Montrose Interagency Fire Management Unit, said that, at least on public lands, Gunnison County typically sees fewer fires due to lightning strikes than surrounding areas.

“Generally, lightning strikes in different parts of the unit pretty consistently,� Barth explained. “One area is along the Uncompahgre Plateau. We see a lot of lightning there. We also see a lot up towards Delta, along the edge of Gunnison County. Those two areas seem to be the hottest spots for frequency of lightning strikes.� It’s likely that these “hot spots� occur due to the characteristics of the forests and the landscape topography, which can direct how weather patterns move, said Barth. About 85 percent of fires on the Western Slope that occurred between 1999 and 2008 were caused by lightning. Lightning fire season generally begins in May and continues into September. June, July and August typically see the largest numbers of fires due to lightning strikes, said Barth. However, only about 60 percent of fires between 1999 and 2008 in Gunnison County were caused by lightning, said Barth. By way of comparison, in San Miguel County, 94 percent of blazes began with lightning. Barth also speculated that Gunnison strays from the norm because of different land uses throughout the county, citing more agricultural use and higher numbers of campers to explain a higher percentage of humancaused fires. Gunnison saw a number of fires started by burning ditches in the spring, including the largest fire this year to date, which was sparked April 6 near Arrowhead subdivision, west of Blue Mesa Reservoir. That blaze burned 125 acres. Three other human-caused fires began that same weekend — all the result of ditch burning. Although fires can start year round, what’s generally considered to be “fire season� runs from April through October, so the county isn’t out of the woods yet. So far, according to Barth, this year’s patterns aren’t out of the norm. “Typically, human-caused fires happen early on in the season, about from the beginning till June,� said Barth. “Now we have a lot of moisture with thunder

storms. That’ll go — we’ll see that taper off in August. Then there’s a warmer, dry period into September and October before it gets cold.� Monsoons moisten conditions, bring lightning too Joe Ramey, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service (NWS) in Grand Junction, explained the conditions that contribute to “fire weather,� which is a broad term that describes weather variables that affect fire potential, behavior and suppression. “As far as conditions for wildfire enhancement, the two ingredients are low relative humidity and strong, gusty winds. When those conditions exist, we put out red flag warnings,� he said. “Other conditions that contribute are dry lightning.� Ramey also explained that the region is well into monsoon season, when moisture moves out of Mexico and into the Rockies. Although thunderstorms that are the signature of monsoon season create rain, they also produce lightning. Ramey said that between Aug. 3 and Aug. 6, the NWS office in Grand Junction produced spot forecasts for six fires in western Colorado. Spot forecasts are used to aid firefighters and are specific for a certain geographic area. The San Juans saw four wildfires from lightning strikes on July 31 — one occurring near Montrose, and the other three near Durango and Cortez. Through this week, Ramey predicted drier weather, with heavy moisture returning tomorrow (Friday). However, dry weather doesn’t mean a lack of thunderstorms. “We could see some storms still (mid-week). Any of those thunderstorms could produce good lightning strikes. There’s a lot of dry fuels, so that could produce fire,� he said. “We’ll keep track of where those strikes are occurring.� (Laura Anderson can be reached at 641.1414 or laura@gunnisontimes.com)

Reasonable disagreements occur. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard recently that perhaps these ongoing debates have led some to question, for the umpteenth time, the health of the relationship between up-valley and down-valley. Is there a growing rift? Absolutely not, I say. Sure, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always been some tension. Some disagreements. But big deal. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crystal clear to me that our pasts, presents and futures are closely intertwined. And tourism is not our only topic of mutual interest. I see Crested Butte Mountain Resort making great strides at engaging the Gunnison community, working closely with the college (I mean, university) and the local schools in offering very attractive pass programs, among other things. They are reaching out to us price-conscious families with free Wednesday concerts and free Friday afternoon lift rides in the summer. Kudos to them. And, both ends of the valley are about to join forces once again in hosting whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably be our biggest event of an already busy summer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Pro Cycling Challenge. This will come on the heels of the awesome car show that the Gunnison Car Club puts on, has put on for 25 years now, and always involves a Crested Butte component. The big bike race also coincides with a revamped â&#x20AC;&#x153;Week of Welcomeâ&#x20AC;? for Western State Colorado University. Sales taxes look good. The Town of Crested Butte is up about 7.5 percent through June. No, not everybody is having a banner year. But the feedback I hear from local business owners is overwhelmingly positive. So, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing all right. Not all news is bad news. (Chris Dickey can be contacted at 970.641.1414 or publisher@ gunnisontimes.com)

Ruwald has been dabbling in photography for 25 years, focusing his lens mostly on local scenery, wildlife, flowers and community events. In addition to matted and framed photography, visitors to the gift shop can find posters, post cards and even jewelry that Ruwald makes which highlight miniature versions of his pictures. He says he accepts custom orders and will ship any of his creations wherever travelers reside. His work has also been featured in Gallery 126, Rocky Mountain Frames and Trophies and The Bookworm. Peaceful Forest Creations is currently open at the airport from mid-morning to early afternoon, coinciding with the airportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer-time flight schedule.

A longtime Gunnison watering hole, The Last Chance Bar, at 620 S. Ninth St., has closed. The log building that houses The Last Chance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; known for years as Gunnisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honkey tonkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; biker bar â&#x20AC;&#x201D; previously served as a campus â&#x20AC;&#x153;clubhouseâ&#x20AC;? (basically, the student union) for what is now Western State Colorado University. In 1963, the structure was moved to its current location. Last Chance owner Steve Warren confirmed that the property is for sale but declined further comment. County property records indicate that Warren has owned the property on which the business sits since 2008.

hunter education building and Outdoor Discovery Center on 9 acres within the Gunnison Rising annexation. CPW leaders announced earlier this year that, despite previous plans, Gunnison would not be the site for the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new regional office. That was after the former Wildlife Commission â&#x20AC;&#x201D; prior to the agency it oversaw, the Division of Wildlife, merging with Colorado State Parks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; approved $1.5 million for engineering and architecture of the project. Since that decision, CPW is working to turn the former plans into a concept that works for the new agency. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not stopping there, instead pushing for the involvement of other local agencies as well. CPW Southwest Regional Manager Tom Spezze, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still overseeing his agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans for a project in Gunnison, calls it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Natural Resource and Outdoor Discovery Campus.â&#x20AC;? Wednesday, Spezze and Western State Colorado University President Jay Helman planned to present the current state of plans for the Discovery Center and area office â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as well as the concept for a larger campus â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to the Parks and Wildlife Commission in Gunnison. The concept of the campus has been discussed loosely for years. When longtime landowner Dick Bratton and his partners were in the midst of review for what would become the Gunnison Rising annexation, a vision for a multiagency campus at the entrance to town was first mentioned publicly. But only the agency now known as CPW was quick to jump at the opportunity. At the time, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a need for a new building and the Forest Service wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interested. Some of that has changed. Bratton has donated 9 acres to house CPWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and Discovery Center, adjacent to the Tomichi

Creek State Wildlife Area. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s envisioned that federal landmanagement agencies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or at least the BLM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; would be housed in a facility on an 8-acre parcel directly east of CPWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 9-acre property. Bratton, Spezze, Helman and Brian St. George, manager of the Gunnison Field Office of the BLM, have been among the most ardent proponents of the land-management campus in recent months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, that idea of co-locating the agencies in one place has been very appealing for us,â&#x20AC;? said St. George. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to make sure that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving toward a permanent facility and not just extending another temporary location.â&#x20AC;? The BLM is currently leasing space at 650 S. 11th St. in Gunnison. When the agency moved into the space two years ago, it was intended to be temporary. The current lease extends through 2015. From St. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standpoint, a new facility would need to be built on private land that BLM would then lease. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because of an agency policy that the BLM doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t own buildings. The Forest Service, however, tends to own its buildings, and for that reason may be a more difficult partner to gain in the campus concept. Construction of the Forest Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current headquarters at 221 N. Colorado in Gunnison â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which it owns â&#x20AC;&#x201D; dates back to 1963. Gunnison District Ranger John Murphy indicated plans for reno-

vating part of the building to house the insect and disease component of the agency. About $1.4 million is slated to fund those renovations in coming years. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s led proponents of the land-management campus to urge the Forest Service to consider the alternative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them to say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, we spent that money, now we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t build out there,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Bratton explained. Still, Murphy said that moving the Forest Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gunnison offices to a land-management campus likely would require the agency to pay rent, which would come out of the officeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appropriation, effectively reducing the size of its workforce. He said that Forest Service leaders have not ruled out the possibility of contributing resources to a smaller, multi-agency informational office â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where visitors could possibly purchase permits, acquire maps and learn more about public land the area has to offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve talked about internally that we may consider doing,â&#x20AC;? he said. Janelle Smith, spokeswoman for the Forest Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rocky Mountain Region, said that acting Regional Forester Maribeth Gustafson has yet to respond to letters from local leaders urging the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement in a land-management campus.

TIMES OPINION

Opportunity knocking for outdoor hub What are good trails for mountain biking in the Gunnison Valley? Where can you camp, hunt or fish, and where do you need permission? What permits are needed to legally cut firewood, or a Christmas tree? These are the sort of questions that visitors to the Gunnison Basin (and locals alike) face daily. Unfortunately, finding answers to them currently tends to result in a wild goose chase to offices spread far and wide around Gunnison. It’s not the fault of the hardworking folks who interact with the public, but rather a result of the basin’s various land- and wildlife-management agencies staking claim to property over the years that’s become available when they needed it. Now, what if an opportunity presented itself for state parks and wildlife offices and federal land-managers to relocate to the same general area — where the public could not only find answers to these types of questions, but generally be treated to a one-stop-entryway to this area’s No. 1 amenity: The Great Outdoors? That opportunity exists. Such a scenario has long been the vision of longtime landowner Dick Bratton. This idea first came to light in the midst of the Gunnison Rising annexation review. We liked it then and we like it now. We urge leaders of the federal land-management agencies

to work diligently to make this vision a reality. Community leaders are already on board. We’re confident legislative officials would follow suit. Unfortunately, organizing this kind of collaboration — between agencies that have differing missions, various policies and separate budgets — is like herding cats. Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) officials seem intent on creating a new area office and, hopefully, Discovery Center on land that is being donated — free of charge — in Gunnison Rising, on the eastern gateway to Gunnison. Bureau of Land Management leaders are in favor of relocating there as well. The Forest Service, meanwhile, seems left out of the picture. The BLM only leases property — meaning that the land would likely have to remain private, and investors would need to construct a building that the BLM would lease. The Forest Service prefers to own property and private ownership would apparently preclude their involvement in the project. But, what if there was a way to appease both agencies — and possibly others, such as the National Parks Service and Natural Resource Conservation Service? We can’t say exactly what that would look like, from an ownership standpoint. But greater obstacles have been overcome.

The entire community would benefit, not just those seeking out a good time on public lands. Western State Colorado University President Jay Helman’s strong support in these discussions is testament to the benefit he views such a land-management campus could provide his institution. New academic programs and internship opportunities could emerge based on collaboration with the state and federal agencies — their offices just a stone’s throw from the university campus. Talk about a recruiting tool. A Discovery Center, a facility filled with exhibits and displays geared toward promoting nature and wildlife, would be a great fit for the eastern entrance to town. In many ways the multiagency concept could work to beckon visitors to our vast swaths of public lands. We realize that’s not necessarily the mission of these federal agencies, yet we encourage leaders to think beyond their own bureaucracies and toward the greater good. We believe that efforts to enhance the public’s enjoyment and awareness of public lands and wildlife, and their responsible stewardship, are positive steps. A co-located, multi-agency campus is clearly that type of progress. Undoubtedly the Gunnison Basin’s most defining characteristic is its incredibly rich natural resources. It’s why peo-

ple come here. It’s why many live here. Bringing together onto one prominent campus, adjacent to a beautiful river corridor, all — or at least most — of the agencies that manage these resources makes a statement to the world: This is who we are, this is what we value. Plus, being able to navigate through the web of travel restrictions, land ownership, wildlife rules and locating good places to recreate, would be a huge boon for all if it could all be accomplished in one location. Currently, we’ve got the BLM tucked away in an industrial zone, the Forest Service blending in with a residential neighborhood, the wildlife folks working out of, basically, a shack. A co-located campus prominently located at the entrance to town, alongside a major highway, would bring these institutions — and all of the important and wonderful things that they represent — out of the closet. It’s a big picture vision that makes an awful lot of sense. Further, it brings exciting possibilities and potential to the table for our community. Rarely does an opportunity present itself in which multiple federal agencies — and one state — are looking to update, relocate or expand their facilities at basically the same time. We urge them all to plan their futures in the Gunnison Basin together, as opposed to separately.

In 1983, funded. For purposes of this that approach started to change column, the term “school” cov- because voters approved a con-

stitutional amendment called the “Gallagher Amendment.” Its purpose was to stop a rapid increase in property tax paid by Colorado homeowners. It requires that, on a statewide basis, residential property will never pay a greater percentage of the total property tax than was paid in 1982. Since the amendment was adopted, the total value of residential property has increased much faster than the total value of other property. Today, in order to keep the overall residential property tax within constitutional limits, the rate of residential taxation is about 1/3 the rate levied against commercial property of equal value. This not only shifts a greater portion of the property tax load to business and other non-residential property, it also causes a decrease in the total school funding from property tax sources. Today the state picks up 60 percent of total school costs and 40 percent comes from local property taxes. This is a reversal of the situation that existed 30 years ago when the

Gallagher Amendment was passed. Another amendment that a ff e c t s s c h o o l f u n d i n g i s called “Amendment 23.” It was passed by voters in 2000 and required statewide school funding to be increased by the rate of inflation plus one percent for a period of 10 years — and thereafter the total funding must be increased at the rate of inflation. This increased funding is required without regard to the level of revenue. Even if the state economy experiences a recession, as it has for the last several years, school funding must still increase. Thus, there are two constitutional amendments passed by Colorado voters that have forced the State of Colorado to increase the amount of money it spends on schools. In my next column I’ll describe provisions of the state constitution that prohibit the state from raising the revenue necessary to meet the increased spending required by the provisions discussed above. Thanks for reading my column.

LETTERS Despite turmoil, nurses go above, beyond for pateints Editor: This last weekend, Gunnison Valley Hospital was inundated by an unusually large number of emergency patients. In spite of all the recent turmoil at the hospital, the doctors and especially the nurses, led by Chris Evans, the acting Chief Nursing Officer, stepped up to the plate and provided superlative care for those patients. Many nurses worked beyond their shifts so that no patient would receive less than exemplary care, some nurses even forgoing meals. I personally want to thank all those who “did the right thing” and put patient care ahead of distracting external conditions. We are fortunate to have in our community such compassionate and caring nurses. Robert Brickman Chair of the Board of Trustees Gunnison Valley Health

Society not the same as socialism Editor: In his July 19 letter to the editor (“Success of some no thanks to those who sat on sidelines”) Jeff Wilkinson continues the distortion of President Obama’s July 13 speech initiated by Willard “Mitt” Romney and his cohorts. FactCheck.org, PolitiFact, the Associated Press, and the Washington Post have all agreed that Mr. Romney has cherry-picked a snippet of Mr. Obama’s speech, editing it so that it sounds like the President was dissing entrepreneurs. (Note: anytime you see the video jump or dissolve from one sentence to the next in a political speech, you can bet there was something of importance that was cut out.) If Mr. Wilkinson would read or listen to the entire text of Mr. Obama’s speech, as opposed to listening to the Fox “News” and the right-wing propaganda machine’s version, he would see and hear that Mr. Obama’s point was that the government has a supporting role in providing an environment in which business can survive and thrive. Mr. Obama spoke of teachers in our lives. He spoke of investing in roads and bridges. He observed that we each don’t go out and fight fires on our own. He summed up by saying, “The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.” The whole context didn’t make it on Fox “News” or Romney’s edited version. I had a difficult time following the logic of Mr. Wilkinson’s letter, but it seems he is most upset with “the 48 percent of citizens who paid no income taxes. ...” Yes, there are many people in this country who do not pay income taxes. Most of these folks are the elderly or are on the lowest end of the income scale (the bottom 40 percent of all Americans own just threetenths of one percent of the wealth in the country.) Some of the 48 percent work on—how shall I say it—a cash basis and

do not report their full earnings. And according to the IRS, there are tens of thousands of wealthy people and many multi-billion dollar corporations who avoid paying any income tax, either. General Electric, for example. And, by the way, why won’t Mr. Romney show us his tax returns for the last 10 years? But I digress. All of us — farmers/ranchers, laborers, white collar workers, business owners — pay some sort of other taxes: property taxes, sales taxes, road taxes, excise taxes, etc. The government doesn’t just get its funding “from American business people” as you say, Mr. Wilkinson. The point is, we live in a society. A society isn’t socialism. It’s how we survive as a species. We each contribute our labor, our talent and ideas, and yes, a portion of our resultant monetary wealth to the whole as we depend on others to contribute their labor, talent and a portion of their wealth. Mr. Obama was simply rephrasing John Donne’s famous idea of “No man is an island.” Allow me in conclusion to cherry-pick a few lines out of that same July 13th speech of President Obama: “I believe in American manufacturing. I believe in making stuff here in America.” Also, “…at the heart of this country, its central idea is that if you’re willing to work hard, if you’re willing to take responsibility, you can make it if you try. ... That’s the idea of America. ... That’s what binds us together.” I invite all readers to please go online and read and watch Mr. Obama’s July 13 speech in its entirety. It has nothing to do with demonizing American business owners. Oh, and Mr. Wilkinson, b e f o re y o u s t a r t q u o t i n g Theodore Roosevelt, you might want to read up on him. As a Republican president, he pushed the GOP towards Progressivism. He was known as a “trust buster.” He increased regulation of business, pushing and signing bills to regulate the railroads, food and medicine companies. He saw himself as a representative of all the people, not just the wealthy or well-positioned. He wasn’t into trickle-down economics. C.R. Wilkens Gunnison

ED efforts could improve business climate, conditions Editor: Thanks for the Aug. 2 Times update on the good efforts of the Economic Development Council, formed by the Board of County Commissioners at the behest of Gov. Hickenlooper. Sounds like they are proceeding with specific goals that will help improve our business climate and conditions. Then, as noted, we can better foster expansion of existing businesses and recruitment of new ones. This work, along with the many assets of our special community and county, as well as some improving local business indicators, may help to encourage corporate Safeway to expand and re-invest in its downtown Gunnison store. For years shoppers here have

well-supported both Safeway and City Market. Safeway’s commitment to our community goes back, however, more than 80 years. From newspaper archives, Larry Jensen of the Times recently chronicled (4/19/12 issue) that Safeway had expanded and relocated four times over the decades. Each time they reinvested in us, we recommitted to them. Winwin. Perhaps the Economic Council and/or other leaders can step in to encourage and re-recruit corporate Safeway. We know from Times reporting that Safeway officials have been here. They’ve shown interest. Let’s be sure they know we’re VERY interested — and that we have the right stuff here to warrant their re-investment. Again, thanks to all who are working to improve the local economy.

paper, the Gunnison Country Times — thank you for all the wonderful articles that featured our children. Our kids feel like celebrities when they see their picture or their name printed in the newspaper. We appreciate it very much. We would love to name each of you individually, but that is not possible — there are too many of you! Please know that you will be missed. Gunnison is a tremendous location to live in, but it’s the people that make it a home. Thank you for your friendships and for all you do to make Gunnison great. God bless you all! To sum it up: You are the best!

Marlene Wright Zanetell Gunnison

Editor: Public Health will hold a school immunization clinic for all school-age children who still need vaccinations. Kindergarteners typically need DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis), MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) and Varicella (chicken pox). Children entering sixth grade need a TDaP (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis). The clinic will be held on Thursday, Aug. 23 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Public Health in Gunnison, 225 N. Pine St. Appointments can be made by calling 641.0209. We accept Medicaid, CHP+ and will turn no one around for lack of ability to pay.

(Editor's note: Zanetell was a Gunnison County Commissioner, 1993-2001, and with her husband Frank has long been involved in business in Gunnison.)

A fond farewell to Gunnison friends Editor: It has been a joy for our family to live and work here in Gunnison for the past 12 years. We have enjoyed it so much. We are moving on to new adventures at our new home in Ohio, however we wanted to write a love note to you all. A big thank you goes out to so many of you. To our beloved Camp Gunnison — what a privilege it’s been to live in such a peaceful environment with such kind and encouraging folks! You will be missed. To our sensational school system — our children have thrived because of our loving teachers and staff who truly care about what’s important! To our tremendous PTA —what a time we have had. From Spirit Days to Pops and Pumpkins, Talent Show to the Camille Besse Ice Cream Social, it has been a blast to be with you all. Thank you for all the fun times! To our sports coaches — your dedication to help our kids succeed has inspired them to feats that were beyond expectation. Go Cross Country! To our Girl Scout and Cub Scout leaders — your quality of life and respect for the scouts is inspiring and you have blessed our children very much. To our Rec Center staff — thanks for all the wonderful opportunities that you make available for Gunnison families. We love seeing your smiling faces. To Hometown Happenings — thanks for faithfully putting the Gunnison kids in the spotlight. To our physicians — thanks for keeping us healthy and for bringing your skills up to the heart of the Rocky Mountains. We have appreciated having the best doctors and dentists at our fingertips. To our rancher friends — you have taught us so much about hard work and loving the task. To our small business owners in town — we are thankful for all you do for our community. Keep up the great work. To our local news-

With much love and thanks, Mel, Maribeth, Hannah and Zach Privette

Dog care business owners support nonprofit’s shelter plans Editor: We read the article about G u n n i s o n Va l l e y A n i m a l Welfare League’s (GVAWL) animal shelter project and plans. We want to express our support for the project and recognize the huge need for such a facility in this community. Drew has been involved with GVAWL for many years, and has worked to rescue, foster and train dogs in the valley. Since we opened Waggin’ Tails in September 2011, we have continued to see the intense need for more adequate animal welfare systems. We recently took in a lovely dog name Jewel who was picked up on Hwy. 114. Her scarring is consistent with falling off a moving truck. She is happy playing here with other dogs, but we feel she would really thrive in a home with a forever family. We have assisted and worked with GVAWL, anticipating the successful construction of this project. All we can say is “the sooner the better.” Waggin Tails, and many of our customers, will continue to be active partners in this project, and we hope the community continues to support it as well. This is for the animals! Pam Christian and Drew Nelson Waggin Tails, LLC

Celebration marks five years of CFGV’s service Editor: The Community Foundation o f t h e G u n n i s o n Va l l e y (CFGV) rolled out the lush green carpet Thursday evening, July 26, for a celebration of five years of unity between the Gunnison and Crested Butte Community Foundations and a special thank you gathering for CFGV supporters. Held at the Almont Resort, which together with Three Rivers Resort were signature sponsors of the event, the evening transported guests to an earlier era to enjoy a revisit of 1940s Presidential candidate Wendell Willkie to Almont. Duane Vandenbusche, Western State Colorado University professor of history, set the scene with a historical picture of the development of the Almont community and the enormous attendance (some 10,000 people) at that first campaign stump speech and fish fry. Anthony Poponi served as Mr. Willkie’s stand-in, since he was unable to appear as himself a second time. Special gratitude and recognition were given to Sandra and John Cosentino as charter members of the foundation and as exceptional supporting friends of the CFGV since its inception and the merger in 2007. The Cosentinos’ generous presence has been unwavering, and was greeted with a hearty round of appreciation and applause. CFGV Board Member Tina Brudzinski and advisors Lyndsey Ruehle and Anthony Poponi, along with Executive Director Pam Montgomery, were the energy and organization behind the lovely evening. The Almont Resort and Three Rivers Resort, both charter members of CFGV, hosted a delicious dinner of grilled, steamed trout with all the sides. Other sponsors providing services and support included High Mountain Liquor, Hope & Glory/Misty Mountain Floral, Holly Kozlowski, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Brett Henderson Photography, The Boom-a-rang and KOA Kampgrounds. 18 Mile Radius provided music that served as an audio treat throughout the evening. A wonderful group of volunteers helped smooth the flow of activities throughout the evening, and included Carolyn Summers, Jeanie Almgren, JoAnn Arai-Brown, Jean Decker, Geri Lancia and Mark Swift. During its existence, CFGV has provided more than $5 million in grants to our local communities and serves our nonprofits with technical support and educational offerings. The foundation owes its role in the valley to its family of donors for enabling it to be the resource that is “here for good.” Our heartfelt and warmest thanks go to everyone who contributed to this wonderful and very special evening. Noelle Hagan, President Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley Board of Directors

to cover. In the past, the MRGs have been paid in full by CBMR and the RTA — without the need for additional revenue from the local governments. The County Commissioners agreed unanimously at their regular meeting this week that it’s a necessary service. Commissioner Hap Channell expressed that Gunnison is striving to offer consistent, year-round air service, but that weekend and holiday services from Houston cater more to second homeowners. Commissioner Phil Chamberland said he sees that as an advantage. “I think the economy of Gunnison in the winter is tremendously dependent on a viable ski area, and the ski area is tremendously dependent on viable air service,” said Chamberland. He also pointed out that though the Houston flight serves mainly second homeowners headed to the north end of the valley, those visitors generally stop in Gunnison for food and supplies before they trek to their winter destinations. “We’re all interdependent on each other,” he added. The City of Gunnison has agreed to pitch in $10,000. The Town of Mt. Crested Butte has committed $20,000, and Crested Butte is expected to follow suit with the same amount. Channell agreed that since the county has sufficient funds, help should be given to RTA; however,

he worried about the message this contribution will send to the local transit authority. “I don’t want this to be a precedent or an expectation of an annual bailout,” he said. County Manager Matthew Birnie said he believes it’s too late for that. “The precedent has already been created,” he opined. “It’s already circulating about (the RTA) asking the county for more money for their next contract.” The commissioners amended the Memorandum of Agreement for contributing the funding to the RTA to read that the county is only willing to give “one-time funding” to alleviate the funding shortfall. Of those funds, $20,000 will come from the county’s 2012 community development fund, and the remaining $10,000 will come out of the commissioners’ 2012 discretionary funds. CBMR spokeswoman Erica Reiter indicated this week that the resort is still in search of local entities to help cover the remaining $9,000. If no additional funding is chipped in, CBMR may cover it, she said, but it would pull from the marketing budget. Birnie also pointed out that should the RTA need yearly assistance covering MRGs, they may have to appeal to taxpayers to help cover costs. “Ultimately, if this is an annual need, they need to go back to the voters,” he said.

ave hates kids!” chant three girls standing about waist-deep in a makeshift rock pool on the Slate River in Crested Butte. The girls are protesting because their coach, Dave Sugnet, won’t let them swim out to a deeper section of the river. According to him, the entire group needs to stay close together. So the girls are now responding with some playful retaliation. Such is a typical afternoon at the Gravity Groms Alpine Day Camp for Kids Who Rip, a summer day camp in Crested Butte with the intention of empowering young kids with the knowledge and tools necessary to have fun in the outdoors. And as this particular incident at the Slate River demonstrates, there is often no shortage of enthusiasm. The Gravity Groms camp started in 2010, after owners Doug and Alexandra Hudson were looking for a way to foster their own children’s interest in action sports in a fun, educational environment. Since that first summer, the camp has grown and evolved tremendously. According to Doug, the daily capacity for the camp is 30 kids. During the camp’s first summer, maximum enrollment was about 18 kids. In 2011, the camp operated at full capacity for five days. “This summer, we’re going to run at capacity for two months,” he The activities planned for the kids said. range anywhere from mountain Doug said part of that growth has to do with the fact that it is now biking to model rocket-launching easier than ever for young children to get involved in outdoor sports. to “zombie tag.” In the past, he said, the amount of gear necessary for action sports such as mountain biking was often a major barrier for parents. “This is new, the fact that they make children’s bikes, children’s gloves, children’s Camelbak backpacks, children’s body armor,” Doug said. “There is children’s everything. It’s awesome.” But in its third year of operation, the Gravity Groms camp has evolved to encompass much more than just action sports. According to Doug, the camp operates on an “á la carte” basis, which means that parents can sign their children up for as many days as they wish, whether that be just one day or two full weeks. “Every day is different,” Doug said. “The business and the concept just keeps evolving and we keep picking up on the activities that kids are crazy about.” Indeed, the activities planned for the kids range anywhere from mountain Gravity Groms B2

R E A L NEWS LOCAL PAPER

A recent Saturday morning did not begin as a typical day for eight youth enrolled with the Gunnison County Partners program. They met at the Partners office for a “pack check” and some crucial information before being led to the BLM-managed Hartman Rocks area for climbing, camping out and rafting. The two full days of adventure were professionally outfitted by Western State Colorado University’s Wilderness Pursuits program. The adventure brought bold experiences, challenge, breakthroughs, reflection, and lifetime memories to all. The local office of the BLM sought out partnership with Wi l d e r n e s s P u r s u i t s a n d Gunnison Country Partners to put together an amazing weekend of adventure for youth ages 12 and up. Over 50 Partners kids were invited and eight of them jumped at the opportunity of a lifetime. This group of young adults climbed under beautiful skies on local granite at Hartman Rocks. They enjoyed

multiple games of “Thicket Master,” “Scout,” “Ninja” and more, along with delicious meals which they helped prepare while at camp. Sunday morning brought an early beginning to the day, another great meal, and then the group headed to raft the Gunnison River. Surfing rafts and running the waves at the Whitewater Park were certainly some highlights to the weekend. Each young adult wrote a reflection letter to themselves before leaving the group

biking to model rocket-launching to “zombie tag.” But no matter the activity, Doug said the camp places an extreme emphasis on fostering a positive enthusiasm for outdoor sports. “There seems to be this thing out there in the world where everybody believes that in order to be heavily involved in the world of action sports, you have to be some sort of a punk with a bad attitude,” Doug said. “To me, that’s completely absurd.” A large part of that positive influence comes from the Gravity Groms coaches. The camp has a staff of 12 coaches, but the kids are split into groups of six, in order to maintain a 6:1 kid-to-coach ratio. The coaches are not only closely involved with competitive action sports on their own, but they also have experience working with children. Eddy Cohn, a Gravity Groms coach and competitive downhill mountain bike racer, said most of the coaches have the same roles and responsibilities, but as a downhill racer, Cohn also coaches a select group of kids interested in competitive downhill racing. “I go up every Wednesday to do the (Pinnacle Mountain Bike Race Series) with the kids,” he said. “I’m coaching a select few of them on downhill racing, so that’s really fun and rewarding.” According to Doug, all coaches are certified in CPR and First Aid. But all of the camp’s activities place a strong emphasis on safety education for the kids, as well.

on Sunday. This letter will be mailed to them in another few months to remind them of what they learned and how they could apply the lessons from adventure to their life. This collaboration of the BLM, Wilderness Pursuits and Gunnison Partners is set to continue for years to come. The main focus is to engage kids in outdoor pursuits while having an amazing time doing it. Learn more about the local Partners program by calling 641.5513 or visiting www.gunnisonmentors.com.

One popular activity for the campers is to ride the dirt jumps near the recreation path in Crested Butte. But before the kids are allowed to ride, the coaches have them conduct a walking inspection of the jumps in order to familiarize themselves with the terrain and to identify any potential hazards. “The first thing we do is park our bikes, put our backpacks down, and have all the kids walk up to the top of the jump and walk down the ramp and walk all the jumps,” he said. After that, the focus is almost exclusively on encouraging the kids to build a slow confidence with their own abilities. The only prerequisite for joining the camp, Doug said, is that each kid must already be comfortable riding a bike up and down a common street curb. From there, the children are split into groups according to age, ability level and social network. At the end of a full day of camp, Doug said the biggest goal is for each kid to come away with what he calls a “great sense of the extraordinary value of stoke.” “It’s important to get rowdy,” he said. “We teach the kids, when something blower goes off, to act like something really special just happened,” he said. Doug frequently shouts his own feedback out to the kids. As his own 8-year-old son Brooks clears a dirt jump, Doug makes sure he lets his son hear it. “Good for you, buddy! Way to go! Progression’s the name of the game!” Brooks then rides up to his dad and proudly declares, “I shred so much harder than you!” A group of excited Gravity Groms cool off in the river recently.

One Book, Crested Butte Music Festival finale One Valley American String Quartet performs during the final week of the CB Music Festival.

Gypsy Jazz in Paradise minifestival featured The six-week Crested Butte Music Festival (CBMF) is drawing to a close this week with a performance by the well-known American String Quartet and a two-day Gypsy Jazz In Paradise mini-festival. American String Quartet Friday, Aug. 10, 7:30 p.m. Center for the Arts Many of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading artists and composers seek out American String Quartet for collaborations, and the group has recently held summer residencies at Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Great Wall International Music Academy and the Aspen Music Festival. At this Aug. 10 chamber concert at Crested Butte Center for the Arts, American String Quartet will perform works by Mozart, BartĂłk and DvorĂĄk. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $35. Gypsy Jazz in Paradise Aug. 11 and 12 Crested Butte Mountain Resort The second annual Gypsy Jazz In Paradise, presented by the Crested Butte Music Festival and DjangoFest, is slated for the weekend of Aug. 11 and 12 at Crested Butte Mountain Resort in Mt. Crested Butte. Gypsy jazz is a truly unique style of music attributed to legendary French/Belgian gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. Reinhardt was the toast of Paris in the 1930s, entertaining the likes of Josephine Baker, Picasso and Hemingway. Of all the styles of jazz to emerge in the 20th century, none is more passionate, exhilaratingly up-tempo or steeped in outsider tradition than gypsy jazz â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a mentality that fits independent-spirited

Crested Butte like a glove. Hot Club of Detroit and Ben Powell will perform on the evening of Saturday, Aug. 11, at Butte 66, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Founded in 2003, Hot Club of Detroit rapidly accumulated accolades and audiences, including a first-place win in the 2004 Detroit International Jazz Festival competition and multiple Detroit Music Awards. Their 2006 self-titled debut, while slightly more traditional than later releases, established their broad-minded approach to the Django resurgence. Ben Powellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abilities as a multi-stylistic violinist have allowed him to perform with some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest artists, irrespective of musical genre, from such pop and jazz icons as Paul Simon, Herbie Hancock, Gloria Estefan, Steve Winwood, Philip Bailey and Rosa Passos to internationally famous classical conductors, including Sir Roger Norrington, Marin Alsop, Yan Pascal Tortelier and Keith Lockhart. Tickets are $35. Sizzling performances by Hot Club Sandwich and Ben Powell will be paired with a gourmet brunch at the mid-mountain Uleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cabin on Sunday, Aug. 12. Participants will ride the chairlift to the 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. event. Hot Club Sandwich has added original compositions, lighthearted vocal numbers, clever arrangements and elements of Latin American acoustic music to create its own voice from the gypsy jazz traditions set by Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Quintet of the Hot Club of France. Tickets are $55. A weekend pass for Gypsy Jazz In Paradise is $80. There also will be workshops led by some of these musicians on Saturday. Go to www. crestedbuttemusicfestival.com or call 349.0619 for tickets or more information.

Second Crested Butte Film Festival, Sept 27-30 Director Alex Cox to attend The second annual Crested Butte Film Festival, a four-day celebration of international film making, will take place Sept. 27-30. Director Alex Cox (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Repo Man,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sid and Nancyâ&#x20AC;?) will be among the invited filmmakers. Mr. Cox will present his widelyacclaimed film, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walker,â&#x20AC;? on the 25th anniversary of its release, and will speak throughout the festival, sharing his vast experience and appreciation of world cinema. Nearly 100 films from 13 countries and 30 visiting filmmakers will present their work to an audience that is expected to double from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural 1,500 people. At

least one world premiere, several North American premieres, and many Colorado premieres, will unfold during the four days. There will also be box-office sensations that will screen at the festival to encourage a wider audience. Directors are scheduled to attend from Europe, Australia, Iran and the United States. The complete schedule will be announced Sept. 1 on the Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, cbfilmfest. org. The first day of the festival takes place in Gunnison, with days two through four in Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte, where films will be shown simultaneously at multiple venues.

Vandenbusche was the longtime coach of WSCU’s cross country team, winning numerous national championships and other national awards, until his retirement from coaching in 2007. Photo by Chris Rourke

Branham transforms from man to machine Rider sets new CTR course record Matt Smith Times Staff Writer

Crested Butte’s Emma Coburn made her Olympic debut this past week in London, where she qualified for the finals of the women’s 3,000 meter steeplechase on Saturday (seen here) and went on to place ninth overall on Monday.

Somewhere between Silverton and Durango in the early hours of Friday morning, Jefe Branham transformed from man to machine. While a lot of that had to do with being seriously sleep deprived — having shut his eyes for about 3.5 hours over the previous three days — extreme focus on the task at hand also played a role in his mental predicament. “After that many days of pushing, I was riding in the dark and that spotlight was my whole world,” said Branham, a Gunnison resident. “I almost forgot who I was and where I was going. I felt like I had basically become something t h a t w a s j u s t m o v i n g f o rward.” Branham’s determination paid off only hours later when he became the new course record holder of the grueling Colorado Trail Race (CTR). His trek took him 470 miles, from just outside Littleton to just shy of Durango, in three days, 23 hours and 46 minutes. It was the second win at the CTR for Branham in five attempts at completing the fully self-supported bike-packing race. He won the inaugural event, in 2007, while having to pull out of competition near Leadville last year. “Not having finished last year gave me more momentum to make sure I finished this year,” he said. “Going into it and planning it, I really wanted to see how fast I could do it.” That meant keeping tight tabs on splits from former record holder Owen Murphy,

Branham

who finished in just over four days in 2009. It also implied that he wouldn’t sleep for more than an hour during any rest stop, which included a few 15 minute catnaps. The race was tight between B r a n h a m , C r e s t e d B u t t e ’s Ethan Passant and Colorado Springs’ Jesse Jakomait until the late stages. Passant looked to have the win in hand nearing the conclusion of day three before he bonked hard with about 30 miles remaining. “He made it up to that last high point and just bottomed out,” said Branham. Branham helped Passant get to a safe spot at the bottom of a hill before surging ahead to the finish line. Still, not knowing how far back Jakomait was kept him on his toes. “They’re both in way better shape and are way faster bike riders than me, but I was driven,” Branham said of his competition at the front. “It just goes to show you can do anything if you really want to.” Passant caught another wind to finish second in four days, two hours and 36 minutes. Jakomait finished in third less than 20 minutes later. CTR B8

Gunnison puts best foot forward at huge state swim meet Stingrays wrap up summer season in home pool Matt Smith Times Staff Writer

The Gunnison Stingrays made themselves at home during this year’s Colorado Summer Club state swim meet. Given their first chance to host the annual season-ending event for youth swimming clubs across Colorado, the Gunnison gang had four swimmers notch a total of seven first place finishes,

one earn a tie for the overall high point title in her age group and a slew of others who notched personal bests. “Over half of our swimmers took off time in almost every event they swam in,” said coach Tami Maciejko. “And what’s really impressive is that we have a lot of kids who are young for their age groups.” The effort earned the Stingrays their highest finish at the state meet in at least five years, at fourth among 27 teams in attendance. Valley, which has more than 80 swimmers in their club,

overpowered the field for the team title. The Stingrays thrived in the younger divisions, where Gunnison had the highest combined score among 9-10 year olds. They also finished second in the 11-12 age group and were third in the 8 and under division. “We just don’t have as many swimmers in the older divisions as some of these other teams,” explained Maciejko. Ruby Barron, 8, took the top Stingrays B8

individual honor available at the meet by nailing down the highest point total on the girls’ side. Barron won the 25-yard backstroke and fly, while finishing third in the 25 freestyle and fourth in the 100 individual medley. Three other Stingrays posted first place finishes to end the season with a state championship in hand. Miles Harris and Jacob Riser had two first place finishes a piece in the 6-and-under division and Spencer Barrett came away with the 200 breast title among boys 15-18. The high point title was just out of reach for another handful of Gunnison swimmers. Mike Riser was third in the boys 8-and-under division and Molly Strickland matched his effort on the girls’ side of the age group. Alexandra and Kyle Riser were third overall in the girls 10-and-under and boys 12-and-under divisions, respectively. Murphy Smith finished with the third highest point total among boys 10-andunder and Braydon O’Neill wrapped up fourth place in the 12-and-under race. A trio of Stingrays made their presence felt in the girls 8-and-under division, where Emma Strickland led the way with a second place taking in the 25 fly. Tara Laudick topped out with fifth place swims in the 25 breaststroke and backstroke, while Madelyn Stice was seventh in the 50 freestyle. Ashlynd Harris improved her time in all eight events she competed in, including a third place taking in the 100 backstroke. Colton Stice also put forth a solid effort in the 12-and-under division, where he was third in two events and totalled 68 points. Three Gunnison swimmers reached the top 10 in the girls 12-and-under division, led by Alyssa Ware’s third place finishes in the 100 backstroke and 100 fly. Isabel Young was fifth in the 200 breaststroke and Taylor Alton landed sixth in the 50 and 100 breaststroke. The Crested Butte duo of Ali and Elina Smith pushed some weight in the 14-andunder race, where Elina was fourth in the 100 backstroke and took two fifth place finishes. Ali was sixth in the 400 individual medley and had four top 10 placings. Kiley Lefebvre rounded out the top finishers with fifth place showings in the 200 individual medley, 200 backstroke

After hitting the links for their first official practice on Monday afternoon, the Cowboys find themselves staring down the barrel of their first tournament today, Aug. 9, in Battlement Mesa. “It’s a little nerve racking,” said GHS coach Denise Mayfield, who is taking over the boys program this fall after leading the girls squad for the past handful of years. “But it’s pretty exciting too.” By the time the first day of school hits on Monday, Aug. 27, the golf team will have already played six of their 10 scheduled regular season tournaments. Meanwhile, most other GHS fall sports programs will just be getting underway. This coming Monday, Aug. 13, five other GHS teams will take their first step of the fall season.

SPORTS BRIEFS Mountaineers picked ninth in RMAC poll

CB Mountain Runners headed to Paradise

The Western State (WSCU) football team was picked to finish ninth out of 10 teams in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) during a preseason coaches poll that was held on Monday. The Mountaineers — who finished 1-10 overall and 1-8 in the RMAC in 2011 — fell in one spot ahead of Black Hills State, who will join the RMAC for their first season in 2012. CSU-Pueblo received the nod to win the conference, while Colorado Mines, Chadron State and Adams State followed in the rankings, respectively. The lone Mountaineer to make the All-RMAC preseason team was sophomore linebacker Jaden Terry. Terry finished the 2011 season with 94 tackles. The Mountaineers begin their season on Sept. 1, when they travel to play Angelo State in San Angelo, Texas. For a complete schedule, visit wscathletics.com

The Crested Butte Mountain Runners will circumnavigate Mount Baldy for their next big adventure on Sunday, Aug. 12, at 8:30 a.m. The total distance will be about 15 miles, including serious climbing and incredible views during wildflower season. The group will meet at the turn-off to Rustler’s Gulch, about two miles north of the Gothic townsite. Participants are advised to carry their own water, food and energy drinks. Entry is $5 for non-members. Contact Jari Kirkland at 275.9276 for more information.

Top pros en route to cycling race Marking one of the best fields ever assembled on American soil for a professional cycling race, the provisional team rosters for the 2012 USA Pro Challenge have been confirmed. Taking place August 20-26, the race will travel through 12 host cities, taking riders and fans on a scenic tour through the Colorado Rockies. Emphasizing the competitive level of the field, the race will include six of the top 13 finishers from this year’s Tour de France: Vincenzo Nibali of Liquigas-Cannondale, Tejay Van Garderen and Cadel Evans of BMC Racing Team, Janez Brajkovic from Astana Pro Team and RadioShackNissan-Trek riders Andreas Kloden and Chris Horner. “ T h e t a l e n t e d g ro u p o f international and domestic cycling stars set to participate in the 2012 USA Pro Challenge is a testament to the growing stature of the race,” said Shawn Hunter, CEO of the Pro Challenge. “With Olympic medalists and Tour de France champions battling it out in the Rockies, this field is one of the best that has ever competed on American soil.”

The USA Pro Challenge will include 10 of the top 12 finishers from last year, including the top five. Also featured will be Taylor Phinney (USA) o f B M C R a c i n g Te a m w h o recently secured two fourth place finishes at the London Olympics. Three of the past four USPRO National Champions i n t h e ro a d r a c e ( Ti m Duggan, Ben King and George Hincapie) will line up in Colorado, as well as two former Giro d’Italia winners: Ivan Basso and Vincenzo Nibali of Liquigas-Cannondale. The elite professional roster of teams, which includes 126 riders from 24 countries, is comprised of six teams that competed in the Tour de France, five Pro Continental teams and five Continental teams. Referred to as “America’s Race,” the USA Pro Challenge will take place August 20-26, 2012, a week proclaimed by Governor John Hickenlooper as “Colorado Cycling Holiday,” and travel through 12 host cities, including Gunnison and Mt. Crested Butte. More information can be found at usaprocyclingchallenge.com.

A GLANCE INTO HISTORY:

W

yatt Earp and Dr. John H. “Doc” Holliday arrived in the boom town of Gunnison in 1882, not long after the famed “Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.” They had each earned their membership in a very select group: the top 10 gunfighters in the West. Living legends, their reputations preceded them. Upon reaching Gunnison, Earp (seen here) and a few of his companions camped about two miles west of town along the Gunnison River. The local newspapers noted the Earp party’s arrival, stating that they looked prosperous, appeared well-armed, and owned a good camp outfit and a handsome team of mules. The Earp party re p o r t e d l y re m a i n e d to themselves initially, only rarely going into town for supplies. It was rumored they were “lying low” until some of the Tombstone “trouble” had blown over. Eventually though, Earp relocated to Gunnison, where he operated a gambling house and saloon, running a faro game in a ramshackle twostory building on the second block of Main Street. He was a remarkably good looking man — tall, dark-moustached, blue-eyed and imposing, with a gun holstered high up under each arm. Earp stayed in Gunnison for a year or so, with no particular trouble arising, everyone keeping in mind his stated philosophy of gun fighting: “stay calm, keep your mouth shut and take your time ... don’t figger to pull the trigger but once.” When Earp’s friend Doc Holliday arrived in town to join him, he also came with a reputation. Holiday, a former dentist, was a renowned gunfighter known as one of the West’s deadliest. A thin, light-haired man with cold and expressionless light blue eyes, he was afraid of nothing. Holiday was reputed to drink heavily and had a reputation for luring unsuspecting adversaries into fights. His uncontrollable temper added to the danger. Other than brief reports made in local newspapers, Earp and Holliday seemed to have made little news — certainly no headlines — in Gunnison. Wyatt then continued his habit of wandering through the West’s many boom towns, investing in mines and running gambling establishments. He worked as a gambler in several more towns before finally settling in California. He lived to be 81 years old, his gun fighting days mostly behind him by the time he left Gunnison. Holliday moved on to Silverton and then Leadville, where he shot a man. He also spent time in Denver and Pueblo. Holliday was already ill by the time he resided in Gunnison. He died in 1887, in Glenwood Springs, of what was then called “consumption” (now tuberculosis). The famous gunslinger was only 36 when disease — not a bullet — brought him down. — Judy Buffington Sammons (Parts of this article are excerpted from Judy Buffington Sammons’ book Keepin’ the Peace — Early-day Justice on Colorado’s Western Slope.
