Bicycling As A Viable Transportation Alternative Whenever Estes Park residents get together and the conversation gravitates to the major issues facing the community, inevitably the same key issues float to the surface -- housing, traffic, cost of living, parking and childcare. These are all difficult problems with no easy solution. They require tradeoffs and compromise and sometimes the solutions are expensive. Let’s look at just two of these issues: parking and traffic. The Town is working hard on both parking and traffic. The solutions aren’t easy and aren’t without controversy. Projects such as the Downtown Loop, the Visitor Center Parking Structure, and possibly paid parking in the Downtown area, have either been implemented or are in the planning stages. None of these are cheap or easy to implement. As with most wicked problems, there is no one solution, but there is one option that is fairly inexpensive, easy to implement, has little or no lead time and is good for you -- bicycles. Communities all over the country and the world are seeing how encouraging and enabling bicycling as a viable transportation option can make a noticeable difference. With the growth of pedal assist ebikes, bicycling is a viable option for more and more people. I ride a bike to work most days yearround. I don’t consider myself a hardcore cyclist, and I do ride an e-bike, which is really helpful in flattening out all the hills in town. In the summer, I can get around just as fast, if not faster, than driving. Parking is never an issue (although we could use more bike racks in town). For the space that I use to park my car when I drive, we could park more than 10 bicycles. Considering that surface parking costs about $3,000 per space and structured parking can cost $30,000 per space, just a fraction of us riding bikes can save all of us tens of thousands of dollars. Bikes take up less space on the road, can help with traffic congestion and don’t pollute the air. For cycling to be a viable transportation alternative, there needs to be cooperation between cyclists and drivers. Drivers: please understand that bikes have the same right to the road as you do. In Colorado, the law requires drivers to share the road and give a three-foot buffer to bicy-

cles. Understand that sometimes bikes do have to veer into the traffic lane to avoid debris or pot holes that are on the side of the road. Bicycles are supposed to follow the same traffic rules as cars, including using left turn lanes. I’ve been yelled at by a driver because I was in a left turn lane, where I was supposed to be. Please be careful when parallel parking and then opening your driver’s door. Cyclists have been severely injured or even killed by being “doored� by a driver and hitting the door or being bounced out into traffic. Be patient -- where shoulders are narrow, slow down and wait until there is room to safely go around the cyclist or until the cyclist has room to pull further to the right. Rather than getting frustrated and angry at cyclist, remember every bike on the road reduces traffic for you and is one more parking space at your destination. Cyclists: remember you are considered a vehicle and you need to follow the same rules of the road as a car. Don’t “salmon.� Salmoning is going against the stream on the road or a bike path. Ride with the flow of traffic. Yes, you have a right to the road, but be courteous to drivers and try to stay as far to the right as possible, preferably on the paved shoulder or bike lane, if it’s there. Never intentionally impede traffic unnecessarily. Don’t be a “ninja�. A bike ninja wears dark clothes and has no lights on their bike at night. If you ride at night, use a headlight, flashing taillight and wear reflective clothing. Just because you can see the cars, doesn’t mean they can see you. Red lights do not come with asterisks that say “*bicycles excepted.� Follow all the traffic rules, including using turn lanes and stopping at red lights. Remember there are two types of cyclists; those who wear a helmet and organ donors. As the old saying goes, “Whether the pitcher hits the stone or the stone hits the pitcher, it’s going to be bad for the pitcher.� You have much more to lose than the car that hits you. By becoming a Bike Friendly community, we have one more tool in our toolbox to help reduce traffic, address parking shortages and reduce impact on the environment, while improving our health as well.

Drug Collection This Saturday, October 27 Police encourage safe disposal of unwanted prescription and over-thecounter drugs This Saturday, Oct. 27, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. the Town of Estes Park Police Department will offer Estes Park’s Drug Take Back Day to collect unused, unwanted and expired prescription and over-thecounter drugs for safe disposal — no questions asked. “Now is a good time to mark your calendar and start collecting everything you want to get out of the medicine cabinet,” commented Officer Gregg Filsinger, who manages this free service for the community. The collection will be held in front of Rocky Mountain Pharmacy, located at 455 East Wonderview Ave. in Upper Stanley Village. Police officers will collect the drugs, which will remain in the custody of law enforcement officers until they can be incinerated. Estes Park’s Drug Take Back Day is part of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s national campaign to provide a safe way for people to empty their medicine cabinets of unwanted and potentially harmful prescription drugs. To find participating collection sites in

other communities, visit Misused and abused prescription drugs containing controlled substances can lead to cases of accidental poisoning, overdose and addiction. The most recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health indicates that prescription medicines are the most abused drugs by Americans, next to marijuana. Seven of the 10 drugs most commonly abused by teenagers are prescription medicines and three quarters of teen prescription drug abusers obtain the drugs from family and friends — often from a home medicine cabinet. Ridding homes of these substances greatly reduces the potential for abuse and accidental poisoning. Items which cannot be accepted at the Drug Take Back Day collection sites are needles and sharps, mercury thermometers, oxygen containers, chemotherapy/radioactive substances, pressurized canisters, marijuana and illicit drugs. For more information, please contact Officer Gregg Filsinger of the Estes Park Police Department at 970577-3868 or at 970-586-4000.

Some people think it is a scandal to use the words white and chocolate in the same sentence. I used to be one of them. But then I went to an Estes Park Garden Club meeting where Holly Wright gave a presentation about all things chocolate and my sweet little world tilted a little. Holly introduced us to real white chocolate, which is made with three ingredients: cocoa butter, milk and a wee bit of sweetener. Dark chocolate also consists of three ingredients: the same cocoa butter as in white chocolate, cocoa particles instead of milk, and sweetener. There isn’t much difference as long as we’re comparing quality white with quality dark. We’re not talking hollow Easter bunnies here. We’re looking at the expensive stuff—like Valrhona. I’ve become a premium white chocolate fan so now, when someone wrinkles their nose and snubs, “Really? You like white chocolate?” I stand up for the underdog. “Give it the respect it deserves,” I say. And then, if they unfurrow their brow and don’t express any further foodie scorn, I’ll get a fine bar of white chocolate—not a block of the stuff that has a chalky texture, feels like wax, and tastes like powdered milk, but the luscious, buttery kind—and offer samples. As Holly did for the Garden Club, I’ll suggest they take a small piece, place it on the tongue, close their eyes, and let it melt into rich cocoa butter ooziness. Good white chocolate will send you just this side of heaven. (Remember, it’s simply cocoa butter, milk and a bit of sweetener) Unfortunately, I don’t think you can get the real goods in Estes Park. A Lindt bar from Safeway is the closest there is. I go to the higher-end groceries in Boulder to get

my white chocolate. News stories these days tell us that dark chocolate is good for us. It can lower our stress levels, help us lose weight, and cure cancer. Drink some heart-healthy red wine with it and you’re likely to run a marathon the next day without training. But if you get a good bar of white chocolate—pale yellow, smooth and satiny, without too much sweetener (that ruins it), you won’t just run that marathon, you’ll break records! Once you’ve become a convert, then you’ll want to advance to something even more amazing: caramelized white chocolate. Relatively new on the market, this “blond’ or “toasted” confection tastes butterscotchy, toffeeish, or like browned butter. It is pure bliss and worthy of obsession. Obviously you have to go to the valley to find this fine fare as well. Have I convinced you? Are you going to get yourself a bar of quality white chocolate and let it melt on your tongue? Here’s the perfect excuse, which I prefer to think of as an opportunity: this Sunday, October 28, in National Chocolate Day. Celebrate! Get a bar of top-shelf white chocolate and share it with a friend. If you need another excuse, consider this: the cocoa bean comes from a tree (the species Theobroma cacao). A tree is a plant. Plants are used to make salads. Therefore, chocolate counts as salad, and you can never eat enough salad. You may let The Thunker know what you think at her e-mail address, © 2018 Sarah Donohoe

The Spitfire Grill Is Looking For Singers/Actors Calling all singers, experienced actors, and people who have always wanted to sing or act but never tried it! The Fine Arts Guild of the Rockies is excited to announce our annual, community musical: The Spitfire Grill. Based on a page from an old travel book, a feisty parolee follows her dreams to a small town in Wisconsin and finds a place for herself working at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill.

Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow-full and things are definitely cookin’ at the Spitfire Grill. This charming musical features Ap-

Physician Recruitment Moves Forward At Estes Park Health Ongoing physician recruitment to provide access to care is a top Strategic Initiative for Estes Park Health in 2018, and an area where there has been substantial success. New physicians for Internal Medicine and Pediatrics To increase our access to high quality care in the Estes Valley, Estes Park Health has successfully recruited Joseph Lee, MD, and Julie Schneider, MD, Internal Medicine, and Patti Aldridge, MD, Pediatrics. Dr. Lee has been working in the Estes Park Health Physician Clinic for several months and officially joined Estes Park Health on October 23, 2018. Dr. Lee is a graduate of Northwestern University Medical School and did his Residency at Georgetown University. He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Dr. Lee credits his father, who grew up in a poor, rural town in South Korea, as the inspiration for his career choice. “He was raised in a traditional Asian culture,” says Dr. Lee about his dad, a pediatrician. “He cared about others and wanted to help his family and community. And he imparted those values and goals to me.” Dr. Lee takes an educational approach with his patients, teaching them about their health to facilitate their decisions. “I always try my best to understand my patients,” he adds. “If they know that I am sincere and come to trust me—that’s a relationship that’s very gratifying.” To make an appointment with Dr. Lee, call 970-5862200. Dr. Schneider graduated from the University of Kentucky, College of Medicine and did her residency at the Medical University of South Carolina. Dr. Schneider believes, “Life is a gift, and maximization of one's health and functional status the foundation for living it to its fullest. It is a privilege to be a part of a patient's journey in pursuing their individualized health goals, but also helping relieve fears and guide a patient and their family through the physical, emotional and spiritual challenges in the face of chronic and sometimes insurmountable illnesses. I want my patients to know that I will be their fierce advocate. I will do for them what I would want done for my own family members, friends or myself if the roles were reversed.” Dr. Schneider will join Estes Park Health in January 2019. Estes Park Health is in the process of recruiting one additional Internal Medicine physician. Dr. Aldridge will come on board as a part-time Pediatrician in early November. Dr. Aldridge is Board Certified in Pediatric Critical Care and a Fellow of

the American Academy of Pediatrics. Dr. Aldridge enjoys being an intimate part of families’ lives and loves working with kids. “I like when parents take ownership of their kids health and stay informed,” shared Dr. Aldridge. “I like to share my knowledge and make recommendations, then decide as a team the best way to proceed.” Estes Park Health also contracted with Children’s Hospital to provide Pediatrics coverage for both the Hospital and the Physicians Clinic as needed in order provide the possible care at all times for the children of our community. . The Hospitalist program continues to help treat more patients locally Hospitalists coordinate patients' care in the hospital. They are the physicians that organize the communication between different doctors caring for a patient. They serve as the point of contact for questions, updates and the comprehensive plan of care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one. The Hospitalist program at Estes Park Health is a contracted service with Rural Physicians Group (RPG). Since instituting this successful service, Estes Park Health has seen a 21% growth in Inpatient Care and our ambulance transfers to other hospitals is down. The Hospitalists have allowed the hospital to keep more patients in their community for care. A Surgicalist program is introduced With the decision by Dr. Woodard to focus his practice on Wound Care only, Estes Park Health evaluated the best options to provide surgical care in our community as part of the 2018 Strategic Plan. Estes Park Health has contracted with RPG for surgicalists. A surgicalist is a highly trained, board-certified surgeon who provides surgical services in the hospital and the outpatient clinic. Unlike the Hospitalist program there will only be two to three General Surgeons rotating through Estes Park Health in order to maintain better continuity of care from the outpatient to the inpatient setting. The surgicalist program will allow more patients to have surgery in Estes Park and remain close to home for follow-up care. The anticipated start date for this new service is December 2018. The goal of Estes Park Health is to continue to be the provider of choice for high-quality care and service excellence in the Estes Valley. Estes Park Health will continue to pursue the 2018 Strategic Initiatives to remain strong, independent and community owned.

Monday, October 29 @ 10am – 2nd Century Meeting

Erika Metzler, who is currently producing & promoting the upcoming Gypsy Jazz-Choro concert on November 4th at the Historic Park Theatre, featuring Olli Soikkeli & Cesar Garabini, recently asked Cesar some questions in an interview for EP News. Erika: Cesar, tell us a bit about your musical beginnings & your career as a musician: I was born in Brazil and moved with my family to New Jersey at the age of five in 1993. I then went back to Brazil in 1998, and then moved to Italy in 2005. I started on acoustic and electric guitar at the age of 13 while I was in Brazil. At that time I played simple chords and strums on Brazilian pop rock. Later on, my taste in rock got more extreme leading me to listening to a lot of Seattle grunge and eventually New Metal. I did however, since a young child, listen to a lot of classic rock and old pop bands such as the Beatles. These were due to my parents playing music around the house and in the car. It was when I was 18 years old, while living in Florence Italy that I came across traditional Brazilian music from an uncle's cds. At first, Bossa Nova, then Samba, and a year later, Choro. Choro music was a genre I had never heard of before and it rocked my world! I switched from the nylon six string guitar to the seven string which is typical in the genre. I then came to NYC in 2011 and have since been playing professionally. I also learned the basics of jazz whilst in NYC and have implemented it in my Brazilian music playing. Erika: What is Choro & why does it work so well playing along with Olli? Choro is the first genuine Brazilian style of music. It is a mixture of African rhythms and European dances. It originates in the 1870s. It is mainly instrumental, and is a virtuosic and harmoni-

cally challenging to play. It is also the precursor to Samba and Bossa Nova. The virtuosity and interesting harmonies of Gypsy jazz, have many parallels to Choro. Olli Soikkeli is on of the top Gypsy "cats" in NYC. We decided to jam one day and played Gypsy Jazz tunes, Brazilian choro tunes, and Jazz Standards. It all worked so well! So we've had this duo for over a year now and have played tons of gigs around the northeast. Erika: Who have your biggest musical inspirations been? Where to start...? the biggest name in this music is the flutist/saxophonist, Pixinguinha. He was probably the composer who popularized the genre the most. As a guitarist, my biggest inspirations are Raphael Rabello and Yamandu Costa. Erika: What can the audience expect on November 4th at the concert at the Historic Park Theatre? They can expect two very different worlds of textures and sounds to collide in sweet harmony. Also, guitar extravaganza! Cesar will be joining Olli Soikkeli on stage at the Historic Park Theatre, Sunday evening November 4th at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets $20 in advance/$30 for VIP section. Tickets are available at or at the box office during business hours. General admission tickets can also be purchased at Macdonald Book Shop.

Big newsâ&#x20AC;ŚHalloween is just around the corner. The reason I tell you this is, where did September go? Aw, the beauty of fall. Well if you had the problems I have created you would think twice about the beauty of fall and all of those falling leaves. When we first built our home, it was on a bare, one acre lot of meadow. We both loved trees so as the years went by, we planted more and more pine, spruce and aspen. Since then I have lost some spruce to drought and beetles, but not the aspen. They grow like weeds. I love the fall colors of the aspen but unfortunately, they have multiplied and so has the fallen leaf problem. In Southern Louisiana we did not have this as most of native trees were either live oak or cypress. Although the live oak shed some of their foliage, they always remained green and the few fallen leaves were easily raked or they blew away. In Ohio we (husband, four kids, and I) would have a day of work and fun raking, falling into the pile of leaves and then raking again and burning them. Now I am only one and there is no burning to be done with all of the fire codes. Oh, where oh where is the wind to blow them away to somewhere else? But there is also a wonderful reason to celebrate fall. All the vegetables of the season like the pumpkins, squashes and fruits like beautiful apples and oranges, are so plentiful. One of my favorite desserts for this time of year is pumpkin pie. Now I know we are being inundated with pumpkins right now but why not make use of them for this delicious treat. But do not use those big monsters that you put out for decorations that sometimes end up feeding the wandering elk or deer. The following is a little bit different than the usual pumpkin pie. Make it for Halloween as a treat for the folks after the trick or treaters have returned home. I hope you enjoy it.

(yams) 1 1/2 Tbs. melted butter ½ cup corn syrup 1 ½ Tbs. flour Dash of salt 1 tsp. cinnamon Âź tsp. mace ½ tsp. vanilla 2/3 cup chopped salted peanuts, divided. 1 pie shell- 9â&#x20AC;? unbaked Preheat oven. Beat eggs and add sugar, yams, butter and syrup. Stir in flour, salt, cinnamon, mace and vanilla. Add ½ cup peanuts. Pour into pie shell and bake 30 minutes. Remove and sprinkle remaining nuts over top and return to oven. Bake for about 25 more minutes or until center is done. I had a lovely experience in Safeway, believe it or not, the other day. I was there getting the can of pumpkin and a nice lady came up to me and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are Esther!â&#x20AC;? I did not know her, but she is one of my readers and recognized me from my column. It was nice to be recognized and complimented on my articles. It is always nice to give a warm greeting and a nice remark. We should all practice that habit. My email is: Bon AppĂŠtit.

Kian Gerig 10th Grade Congratulations to Kian Gerig, the Estes Park News Student of the Week for October 26, 2018. At Estes Park High School Kian participates in basketball and is a leader in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). As a freshman he earned a 4.0 GPA and he still maintains a high GPA this year. Outside of school he likes to go surfing, mountain biking, hiking and skiing. He has been on the highest ski lift in America which is located in Breckenridge, CO. Kian’s favorite quote is from Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” He likes this quote because it reminds him that God is in

control and is always with him. After high school Kian plans to go to college at Oregon University, however he is not 100 percent sure just what career he wants to study for yet.

Bank of Estes Park Student Legacy Award: In addition to being awarded the Student of the Week, each winner will be given the opportunity to nominate the school program of their choice for the chance to win $500. At the end of the school year, one such nomination will be randomly selected, and that school program will be awarded the $500 Bank of Estes Park Student Legacy Award, in that student's name.

LOVE IS A BEAUTIFUL THING TO BEHOLD A surgeon tells the story of a patient following surgery. “I stand by the bed where a young woman lies, her face postoperative, her mouth twisted in palsy, clownish. A tiny twig of the facial nerve, the one to the muscles of her mouth, have been severed. She will be thus from now on. The surgeon had followed with religious fervor the curve of her flesh: I promise you that. Nevertheless, to remove the tumor from her cheek, I had to cut the little nerve. Her young husband is in the room. He stands on the opposite side of the bed, and together they seem to dwell in the evening lamplight, isolated from me, private. ‘Who are they?’ I ask myself, he and this wry mouth that I have made, who gaze at and touch each other so generously, so greedily? The young woman speaks: ‘Will my mouth always be like this?’ she asks. ‘Yes’, I say, ‘Because the nerve is cut.’ She nods and is silent. But the young man smiles. ‘I like it!’ he says, ‘It’s kind of cute.’ All at once I know who he is. I understand and lower my gaze. One is not bold in an encounter with one so ‘god-like’. Unmindful he bends to kiss her crooked mouth, and I am so close I can see how he twists his own lips to accommodate to hers, to show her that their kiss still works. I remember that the gods appeared in ancient Greece as mortals, and I hold my breath and let the wonder in.” (Dr. Richard Selzer, Lessons from the Art of Surgery) Perhaps you have been privileged to see such a display of love from a person to their mate, or to others. It seems to me and many others who visit our fair community, that such ‘displays of love’ are seen on many occasions. We seem to have quite a few ‘crooked smiles’ in our area. Whenever it happens, it always makes us want to ‘hold our breath and let the wonder in’. It was that way with Christ’s people in the first century. “Behold, how they love one another” is reported to have been said as people saw and desired to integrate into such a body of people. And it will be seen in our century and our place. It comes as no surprise that people want to move to Estes Park. It is not only the beauty of the area, it’s the beauty of the people as well. Jesus clearly said, “By this will all men know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:35) This being true, one wonders how many people actually fulfill this qualification for discipleship. Perhaps it’s a good time to take inventory of our lives to see how we are doing. First Corinthians 13:1-13 gives us a good picture of what Christian (God-like) love is really about. Consider the items in the description and see how you do: _____ I am patient with you…because I love you and want to forgive. _____ I am kind to you…because I love you and want to help. _____ I do not envy your possessions or gifts…I love you and want you to have the best. _____ I do not boast about my attainments…I love you and want to hear about yours. _____ I am not proud…because I love you and want to esteem you. _____ I am not rude…because I love you and care about your feelings. _____ I am not self-seeking…because I love you and want your needs met instead. _____ I am not easily angered…because I love you and want to overlook your faults. _____ I do not keep a record of your wrongs…My love for you covers a multitude of sins. “Love knows no limit to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. It is the one thing that still stands when all else has fallen. In this life there are three lasting qualities—faith, hope, and love, but the greatest is love.” May our lives be so evident in our love that people know exactly Whose disciple we are. In Jesus, Bob

Nonprofits Cultivate Community

There are over 150 charitable, educational, and religious based 501(c)3 organizations servicing the Estes Valley. What are they doing? Who are they?? The majority of this sector is comprised of volunteers: full-time employees who “moonlight” to do good works, citizens called to contribute, and “fakeretired” community members who are sometimes just as devoted to a nonprofit mission as they were to their career. The missions at work in this matrix of nonprofits are wildly diverse: executing disaster relief, purchasing books for youth, bringing exchange students to our schools, researching water quality, tracking the effect of floods on animal migration, supporting music and theater productions, purchasing emer-

gency medical equipment, preserving lands and open space, tackling economic development, providing networks for businesses, and so much more. Nonprofits are also defined by having 85% of their incomes go towards programming. That means 85% of all grants, donations, and planned gifts are making those missions happen: putting a coat on a kid, feeding a home-bound elder, monitoring conservation easements, etc. Together with businesses, volunteers, and donors, these nonprofits are cultivating the colorful, thriving, and enriched community of Estes Park. Together, they cast a broad net of philanthropy. They deserve to be thanked and recognized for their impact and hard work. The Estes Park Nonprofit Resource Center (EPNRC) is planning Estes Park’s National Philanthropy Day event November 15th, 4-7 p.m. This annual event is held at the YMCA of the Rockies and brings together roughly 400 volunteers, donors, and organizations. Awards presented at this event include the Katie Speer Philanthropist of the Year, Business Philanthropist of the Year, Youth Philanthropist of the Year, and Enduring Service Award. Be there. Be inspired. The house fills to capacity; RSVP is required at

Estes Valley Community Center Receives Another Award For Outstanding Construction lence in Construction awards program is the industry’s leading competition that honors both general and specialty contractors for innovative and highquality merit shop construction projects. The award honors

Estes Valley Recreation and Park District (EVRPD), the provider of numerous recreational opportunities in Estes Valley, is excited to announce another award for quality construction of the Estes Valley Community Center. On Friday, October 19, 2018, Adolfson & Peterson Construction received an Award of Merit from the Rocky Mountain Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) in the category of institutional projects between $10 and $25

million at the Excellence in Construction awards ceremony. “It is exciting to see the community center receive a variety of accolades— from the recreation industry to the construction industry,” said Tom Carosello, Executive Director for Estes Valley Recreation and Park District. “It reinforces what most of us already know—that we have a fine facility for our little mountain town.” According to ABC’s website, the Excel-

all construction team members, including the contractor, owner, architect and

engineer. Each project is judged on complexity, attractiveness, unique challenges overcome, completion time, workmanship, innovation, safety and cost. During the awards ceremony, the challenges presented by wildlife as the building went up, among other features, was noted as a unique aspect throughout construction. Apparently, the elk can share in the award as well. The team for the construction of the Estes Valley Community Center included: Ohlson Lavoie Collaborative for architecture, Adolfson & Peterson for general contractor, and RLH Engineering as the owner’s representative to oversee project development. There were also numerous subcontractors on the project, many of which also received awards at the same award ceremony. The 70,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Estes Valley Community Center is a comprehensive, multigenerational destination for residents and visitors to Estes Park. District staff kept the local Estes Valley population of approximately 11,000 people in mind when designing the building but knew that the four million plus visitors that pass-through Estes Park every year would benefit from its services as well. The facility is especially beneficial for staying active on cold, windy or rainy days and for families looking for something to do with kids in Estes Park. For more information about the community center and EVRPD, visit or call 970-586-8191.

Estes Park Health Earns Recertification As Level IV Trauma Center dow of time after a major traumatic injury when lives are threatened and there’s an opportunity to intervene and save lives. “Our goal is to provide the initial stabilization and resuscitation, trans-

Trauma Team provides life-saving care during the “golden hour of trauma” for residents and visitors across 1,000 square miles. The State of Colorado certified Estes Park Health as a Level IV Trauma Center last week, marking the 19th year of certification. “We met all their criteria without reservation,” said Scott Chew, MD, Chief of Trauma Services. Level IV certification reflects Estes Park Health’s commitment to providing the highest levels of care. “In Colorado, it’s not required to be a trauma center,” said Tim Gray, RN, Trauma Nurse Coordinator. “Being designated a trauma center is a voluntary choice the hospital makes. The decision to seek certification is made by the Administration and the Chief of Trauma Services who commit to all the education, requirements and equipment that we have to maintain.” Estes Park Health accepts patients during the “golden hour of trauma.” According to Dr. Chew, this is the small win-

In just five minutes, the Trauma Team is ready to accept the patient(s). “When a trauma patient arrives here, the Trauma Team is at the ambulance bay doors ready to help the patient,” Dr. Chew said. “We’ll have extra traumatrained nurses, emergency physicians, laboratory services, blood bank services and diagnostic imaging all to accept that

either crash into an elk, or get too close to the elk and actually get stomped on or gored.” In 2017, visits to the Estes Park Health Emergency Department numbered 6,011. Of those, there were 160 serious trauma cases and 44 were life-threatening traumas that required Trauma Team activations. Dr. Chew said, “I am very proud of Estes Park Health, all of the members of the Trauma Committee and all of the departments that contributed to our successful completion of a state site survey last week.” About Estes Park Health fuse blood, stop (formerly Estes Park Medongoing bleeding, ical Center) protect airways and Founded in 1975 by the get them to the residents of Estes Park, service they need Estes Park Health is the for the final lifesavcommunity’s comprehening measures,” Dr. sive health care resource Chew said. with a focus on superior, Scott Chew, MD, Chief of Trauma To maintain Tim Gray, RN, Trauma Nurse Coordi- compassionate care that readiness, the Estes Services in white jacket nator. consistently receives high Park Health patient-satisfaction scores. patient as we rush them into the EmerTrauma Committee meets regularly.

High As A Hawk: A Brave Girl’s Historic Climb Conservancy Brings Favorite Book Back in Print The Rocky Mountain Conservancy has collaborated with Boulder author Thomas A. Barron, author of High as a Hawk: A Brave Girl’s Historic Climb, and artist Ted Lewin, to bring this regionally significant children’s book back into print. Originally published in 2004 through Philomel Books, the publication had sold out and was essentially retired. When the Conservancy approached Barron about a possible reprint, the author

was w very pleased, and made the generous donation to the project p that made the t reproduction of this t book, with the Conservancy as its new publisher,

possible. High as a Hawk was inspired by a letter that Enos Mills had received from a young girl named Harriet Peters,

from Little Rock, Arkansas. Armed with additional photo-documentation of Harriet and Enos on the summit of Longs Peak, and the knowledge that in 1905, Harriet had become the youngest person ever to reach the summit, Barron became intrigued with the actual details of the event that might have occurred. Curiosity piqued, Barron created High As A Hawk as one possible story of the way this amazing climb with Enos Mills and Harriet Peters unfolded. “Sometimes a story is so awesome and inspiring that it has all the power of a bolt of lightning on Longs Peak. The story of Harriet, the brave young girl who climbed that mountain and inspired the great guide and con-

servationist Enos Mills, is that powerful. It changed my life forever — and I hope it will do the same for everyone who reads it!” Barron commented. Available in Conservancy Nature Stores in Rocky Mountain National Park visitor centers and online at, High As A Hawk (retail price $14.95) is a project of the Next Generation Fund, a critical endowment fund created by the Conservancy to meet the challenge of connecting the next generation of young people with nature. High As A Hawk is also available at the Macdonald Bookshop in Estes Park. Founded in 1931, the nonprofit Rocky Mountain Conservancy partners with Rocky Mountain National Park and other land management agencies to support education and philanthropy for its public lands partners.

None of us can completely control all the things that happen to us. Yet, when it comes to achieving your long-term financial goals, including a comfortable retirement, you do have a great deal of power – as long as you follow a clear, well-defined financial strategy. And one way to help build and maintain such a strategy is by consolidating your financial accounts. Over the course of their lives, many people pick up a variety of financial accounts from multiple sources. They might have a few IRAs from different providers, a couple of old 401(k) plans from past employers, an insurance policy (or two) purchased many years ago, and a scattershot of stocks, bonds, certificates of deposit and other investments. If this picture describes your situation, you may want to think about consolidating. For one thing, having a variety of accounts can run up a lot of fees. Furthermore, you’ll have lots of paperwork to keep track of all your accounts, including several different tax statements. Plus, just by having so many accounts, you risk forgetting about some of them – and if you don’t think you’d ever forget about your own money, consider this: Well over $40 billion in unclaimed cash and property, including 401(k)s, pensions and IRAs, is awaiting return to the rightful owners, according to the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators. But beyond reducing your possible fees, paperwork and potential for lost assets, consolidating your accounts with one provider can give you a centralized, unifying investment strategy, one that can help you in the following ways: • Diversification – If you own several different financial accounts, including IRAs, 401(k)s and online accounts, you might have many similar investments within them. You might even own a cash-

value insurance policy containing investments that closely track the ones you have in the other accounts. This type of duplication can be harmful, because if a market downturn primarily affects one type of asset, and your portfolio is dominated by that asset or similar ones, you could take a big hit. But if you have all your investments in the same place, a financial professional can review your holdings and recommend appropriate ways to diversify your investment dollars. (Be aware, though, that while diversification can reduce the impact of market volatility on your portfolio, it can’t guarantee profits or protect against all losses. • Staying on track – With all your accounts in one place, you’ll find it easier to keep the big picture in mind and make the moves necessary to help you progress toward your financial goals. Two main actions include buying or selling investments and adjusting your portfolio to make it more aggressive or conservative, depending on your situation. • Avoiding mistakes – If you own several separate accounts, you could see a loss in one or more of them and overreact by selling investments that could still be valuable to you. But with a consolidated investment platform, you can see more clearly that the impact of a loss may be small, relative to the rest of your holdings. As we’ve seen, consolidating your investment accounts with a single provider can have several advantages. So think carefully about bringing everything together – you may find that there’s strength in unity. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by our local Edward Jones Financial Advisors.

"There is no admission charge at all to this concert," says concert producer Bob Gunn. "There will be donation jars going in and coming out and during the intermission and we hope people coming to this concert will drop a few bucks or checks in the jars. Everything we raise will go to Crossroads Ministry of Estes Park." That's the charitable agency that operates a food pantry for those in need. Families who find their cupboards bare or their wallets empty when it comes time for rent and utility payments can find assistance at Crossroads. "It (money) also goes towards medical services that people hold out on because of their finances," explains Brian Schaffer, executive director of Crossroads. "It assists us in purchasing meals for people that we deliver to through the Meals on Wheels program. We do offer meals on a sliding scale depending on each person's situation. Some of them can pay the full amount. Others can only pay a partial amount, but we want to continue to deliver meals to those people." That program affects at least 40 families in the Estes Valley who depend on the Meals on Wheels program for at least one nourishing meal each day. Singers and musicians on the program include Nancy Bell, Valerie Dascoli, Melissa Westover, Scott Anderson, Larry Pierce, Bob Gunn, Christy Florence, The

Kids say whatever they happen to be thinking and Leonard Bernstein captures this quite well in his song cycle for children, written before the turn of the last century. One might call it mid-century modern, without perceivable melody, key or time signatures and with lyrics that a child might express." "Come hear beautiful voices sing, representing the people in our community without a voice," says Schaffer. "In many ways they are using their talents to vocalize not only beautiful music, but also to voice their concern and compassion for those in our community who need some assistance." Come, enjoy, donate -- it's a win-win combination. Bob Gunn

Creating Your Halloween Guise In The Library Makerspace Fall is in the air. It’s that cheerful season when we enjoy stepping over those crunchy dry leaves, walking trails amid sparkling autumn sunshine, scraping frost from our windshields in the morning, and keeping sweaters and snow shovels always close-by. It’s also the season when the community comes together for two great local traditions. We at the library are pleased to be part of both. First, we are mere days away from the annual Halloween crawl, when downtown will be a festively creepy celebra-

tion for all ages to enjoy a safe trick-ortreating environment, made possible by the generosity of many local businesses. Joining in the fun comes with a challenge: how to achieve that wonderfully gruesome Halloween face? This year, the Library is making it easy for everyone to have their own personal monster-make-up studio. All are invited to the Zombie MakeUp Drop-In workshop at the library this Wednesday, October 31, from 4 to 7 p.m. We’ll provide the make-up and supplies so you can create your own gruesome zombie look, with some helpful guidance from our creative program team. Once you’ve put the finishing touches on your look, you’ll be in good company with all those other Halloween creatures on Elkhorn Avenue. No registration is required. Just drop in anytime between 4 and 7 p.m. on Halloween. Everyone is welcome—and we’d love to see lots of Estes Park students stopping by. And don’t forget that the library is always a comfortable place to warm up before or after your crawl down Elkhorn. While we won’t be distribut-

ing candy, we will be giving out pumpkin decals to decorate your goodie bag or to take home. In addition to Halloween, this is the season of another important holiday tradition: Día de los Muertos. The community is invited to the third annual local celebration on Thursday, November 8 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Estes Park High School. The library is once again a partner and co-sponsor. Note: this is a change from the original November 9 date that had been earlier publicized in our Pro-

grams Guide and elsewhere. Día de los Muertos is a popular Mexican tradition, with ancient roots, honoring beloved ancestors, family and friends. It is a time of reflection, and the local celebration will include a Wall of Remembrance where the community is invited to post photos and messages to honor loved ones. The gathering will also include dinner, desserts and refreshments, as well as craft and activity tables. And—not to be missed—live music by Mariachi del Sol. Be sure to say hello at the Library’s booth at El Día. We’ll have a craft activity for kids, plus information about our English Language Learning programs, which include English tutoring, citizenship classes, bilingual storytimes, and Learn English Discovery Kits that can be checked out, complete with literacy iPads made possible by the Rotary Club of Estes Park. Here’s to a safe, happy and festive Halloween and El Día season. We hope you make the library a part of your autumn splendor.

Senator Linda Newell Shares Insights In Working Across The Aisle This Monday, October 29, at 7 p.m., the Estes Valley Library will host the final program in this season’s One Book One Valley series. The program is also integrated with the themes of October’s Conflict Resolution Month. Special guest and former State Senator Linda Newell will lead a program titled “Conflict Resolution and Bipartisan Politics” in the Library’s Hondius Room. To assure seating, participants should register in advance at Monday’s program will focus on how citizens can work together to build bridges to achieve real and effective solutions. During her time in the Colorado legislature, Newell earned the reputation of a problem-solver and a bridge-builder. In an age when government has become known for partisan gridlock, Newell had a track record of bills that achieved 98% bipartisan support. She has earned over 40 awards from a variety of organizations from business to human services and public health. She and State Senator

Kevin Lundberg were featured in the film “The Last Bill: a Senator’s Story,” which documents the real-life story of carrying two of her bills through the legislature, showing the struggles and successes of bipartisanship with humor and fortitude. Now working as a facilitator and coach in the area of conflict resolution, Newell helps individuals and organizations to transform their fears into excitement and conflict into peace, seeking out synergistic win-win solutions. She also works with children, teens, and young adults in the areas of mindfulness, compassion, and conflict management. The library thanks its community partners for making this month’s program series possible: the League of Women Voters of Estes Park, the Town of Estes Park, the Estes Park EDC, Restorative Justice of the Estes Valley, and the YMCA of the Rockies. Advance registration for Monday’s program may be done at

Louis “Lou” Byron Moore Louis “Lou” Byron Moore passed away on Thursday, August 9, 2018 at the age of 88 at Unity Point Health – Proctor Hospital in Peoria, IL surrounded by his loving family. He was born to Byron and Louise (Hinton) Moore on June 18, 1930 in Peoria, IL and spent many summers growing up at his Aunt & Uncle’s Resort in Phelps, WI where he first developed his deep love for the outdoors. Louis graduated from East Peoria Community High School in 1948 where his father was the principal at the time. The East Peoria Community High School Auditorium is named in honor of his father who devoted 41 years of service as teacher, coach, principal and superintendent. He spent a couple of years in Jackson Hole, WY as a Fire Lookout for the National Forest Service. Then he came back home to join the Air National Guard. He married Joyce Sparkman, in East Peoria, IL on January 25, 1954. They moved to Estes Park, CO in 1963 shortly after their daughter Anita was born where they spent almost 50 years. Louis owned several businesses such as Lou Moore Construction, Mountain Water Service, The Hot Tub Dr. and The Sharp Shop of Estes. Louis was a big part of community service in Estes Park and served many proud years volunteering as part of the Chamber of Commerce, Jaycees, Lions Club and the Estes Park Fire Department. After retirement in 1995, Louis and his wife decided to travel the country in an

RV where they spent several years as Camp Hosts for Thousand Trails at various campgrounds in Colorado. His greatest love (besides his family) was the great outdoors, the beautiful Rocky Mountains and being an avid fisherman. He was very active in the lives of their daughter, two grandchildren and most recently to their great granddaughter. The couple eventually ended up back in their home town of East Peoria, IL in 2012. Louis is survived by his wife Joyce, daughter Anita (Daren) Varga; two grandchildren, Andrew (Jarrett Rivera) Pallissard and Briana (David) Havenar and one great-granddaughter, Ayla Lee Havenar. Also surviving is Kellie “Durango” Steele Street who has been a special part of the family since the late 70s. He was preceded in death by both his parents and his one brother, Ben Moore. Louis will not only be remembered fondly as a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and “grandpapa” but also as a United States Air National Guard Veteran. Come help the family celebrate his life from 1:00-3:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 28th at 540 Chapin Lane in Estes Park, CO – bring your stories and memories to share. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Midwest Affiliate Children’s Hospital or the Estes Park Volunteer Fire Department.

Salud Family Health Centers November is American Diabetes Month Salud Family Health Center is proudly participating in American Diabetes Month to raise awareness about diabetes and healthy living. Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. It can cause blindness, nerve damage, kidney disease, and other health problems if it is not controlled. One in ten Americans have diabetes that's more than 30 million people. An additional 84 million adults in the United States are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news? People who are at high risk for type 2 diabetes can lower their risk by more than half if they make

healthy changes. These changes include: eating healthy, increasing physical activity, and losing weight.

Young Electors Turn Out And Vote! By: Judi Smith Junior Election voting started Wednesday (Oct. 24) at the Estes Valley Library and will begin at the EVRPD Community Center on Monday (Oct. 29). Voting will end at 7 p.m. November 6. All Estes Valley residents, ages 5-17 are encouraged to vote in this practice election. Discuss the election with your parents, your teachers, your friends. Then be sure to add your voice to determine what the young citizens of the Estes Valley would like to see in results. Who should run our county? Our state? And our country? Should 21 year olds be permitted to hold state offices? Should schools have better funding? Should oil wells be allowed near schools? How close? Does our fire department need more money to function? These are just a few of the questions on the ballot this November. Students in grades 5-12 who attend Estes Park Schools full time will have an opportunity to vote at school using their iPads. Students in grades K-4, or enrolled at Eagle Rock or at on-line schools, students in the Options Program, or those who are home-schooled will vote at the library or at the Community Center using paper ballots (obtained where you vote). Students who attend Estes Valley Schools part-time should check with their teacher to find out where to vote. Questions? Contact for answers. To give the students an opportunity to get acquainted with candidates, there were four different “meet and greets” with candidates for US House, Colorado State Senate, Colorado State House, Larimer County Commissioner and Larimer County Clerk and Recorder. Some high school seniors may also remember Colorado Representative Dave Young speak-

ing and answering student questions at Estes Park High School after the 2016 election. He is now running for State Treasurer. Sometime this winter, please plan on joining our Junior Election programs with our current Town Trustees and other local officials. For paper ballots, place both your ballot and your registration form into a Junior Election Ballot Box at your voting precinct, either the library or the Community Center. Separate pieces of paper keeps your vote secret. Kindergarten through 2nd grade students vote only for governor. Their ballot contains photographs of the four pairs of candidates. Students in grades 3-5 vote for governor, United States Representative, Colorado Senate, and Colorado Representative. Their ballot also contains Amendment V concerning the age of Colorado State Senators and Representatives. The Middle School Ballot adds county elections for commissioner and for county clerk and recorder as well as two more ballot issues. Amendment 73 concerns school funding and Proposition 112 establishes the distance an oil or gas well must be from an occupied building or waterway. The high school ballot reflects everything that appears on the adult ballot in Estes Park. Results of the election will be announced at EP schools, will appear in both local newspapers, and will also be submitted to TV news and radio stations in the valley. Students votes often, but not always reflect their parents. But just like the adults, if you do not vote, you give up your right to complain. Voting is both a privilege and a responsibility. Democracy is not possible without voters. Please remember to vote and to only vote once!
