Fuels mitigation work near Lily Lake and Twin Sisters in Rocky Mountain National Park. Courtesy Rocky Mountain National Park

Hazardous Fuels Reduction Work Inside The Park Boundary Near Lily Lake The reduction of hazardous fuels is a significant preventative management tool for managing wildfire near structures and communities. These projects are done to protect life and property and enhance the safety of firefighters and their ability to manage fire within the park. When fighting the East Troublesome Fire in 2020 and the Fern Lake Fire in 2012, firefighters were able to take advantage of previous and existing prescribed fire and hazardous fuels treatment areas that provided a buffer between the fire and the town of Estes Park. Prior hazard fuels projects were instrumental in stopping the fire from jumping Bear Lake Road and Trail Ridge Road. Hazardous fuels reduction projects take place in strategic locations within Rocky Mountain National Park. The most recent project will take place within the Rocky Mountain National Park boundary near Lily Lake. Work will include re-

moving dead trees, the lower limbs of remaining trees, dead and down logs and ladder fuels which can carry a fire burning in low-growing vegetation to surrounding taller vegetation. Resulting woody materials will be piled on site and burned during winter when conditions allow. Fuels reduction projects cannot be a stand-alone defense against wildfire. It is advisable that additional fuels reduction be completed on private property to meet Firewise mitigation and Hardening Your Home efforts. To learn more about how you can protect your home and help firefighters, please visit: www.nfpa.org/Public-Education/Firecauses-and-risks/Wildfire/Preparinghomes-for-wildfire www.readyforwildfire.org/HardeningYour-Home/ For more information about Rocky Mountain National Park please visit www.nps.gov/romo or call the park’s Information Office at (970) 586-1206.

The charge(s) are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. On 6/02/2022 at 4:40 p.m. police were called to the 1200 block of Graves Av-

enue where they contacted a 59 year old male from Estes Park and charged him with domestic violence and harassment and transported him to the Larimer County Jail.

EVFPD firefighters generally respond to medical calls in their personal vehicles, allowing for a faster response. On other incidents, firefighters respond to a fire station to respond in department apparatus with specialized equipment. During the week of May 29, the Estes Valley Fire Protection District (EVFPD) responded to 11 calls for service. This

included: • Alarm Activation: 3 • Gas Leak: 1 • Arcing/Down Power Lines: 1 • Smoke Investigation: 3 • Structure Fire: 1 • Dumpster Fire: 1 • Possible Illegal Burn: 1

Trail Ridge Ribbon Cutting Is About More Than Opening A Road...

Courtesy photos

Trail Ridge Road is officially opened for the summer season by Kim Swift, Grand Lake Town Administrator John Crone, Mayor Steve Kudron, RMNP Superintendent Darla Sidles, Mayor Wendy Koenig, Larimer County Commissioner Jody Shadduck-McNally, Xanterra Trail Ridge Store Managers Nancy Strong and Annette Taratino.

Among the many spectacular features of Rocky Mountain National Park, Trail Ridge Road is arguably one of its most spectacular. Spanning the width of the park and reaching an elevation of 12,183 feet above sea level, Trail Ridge Road crosses the Continental Divide and connects Grand Lake and Estes Park. Its construction began in September, 1929 and ended July, 1932 at Fall River Pass. Named an All-American Road in 1996, it’s one of only 13 American Byways in Colorado. A highlight of my mayoral duties is meeting with my counterpart from Grand Lake and officials from RMNP for a ribbon cutting ceremony atop Trail Ridge Road every Memorial Day. The ceremony, originally called the Hands Across the Divide Ribbon Cutting, has occurred annually for at least 20 years. It marks the re-opening of Trail Ridge Road, since its closing the previous September due to snow and ice. The ceremony and the road it honors are two of many connections the people of Grand Lake and Estes Park share. We both live in statutory towns, whose governments can only exercise powers granted by the State of Colorado. Both towns rest amidst majestic mountains, with Grand Lake sitting on Western slope of the Continental Divide at 8,367 feet elevation and Estes Park sitting at 7,522 feet on the Eastern side. The economies of both our towns benefit

from the 4.5 million tourists annually visiting RMNP and both towns have large, beautiful lakes. Grand Lake is the deepest and largest natural lake in Colorado. A dam completed in 1949, as part of the Colorado Big Thompson Project, forms Lake Estes. Another component of that project is a 13.1-mile tunnel, starting at Grand Lake, that transfers water from the Western slope to Estes Park and communities along the Front Range. On Memorial Day, the connections between the towns were front of mind for me as I stood at the apex of Trail Ridge Road, alongside Grand Lake Mayor Steve Kudron and Rocky Mountain National Park Superintendent Darla Sidles. Awareness of the connections contributed to a sense of clarity sweeping over me as we cut the ribbon. That clarity gave rise to thoughts about the road and the towns at its ends. The way that the connection between the towns that the road had made possible, enabled decades of cooperation and agreements that greatly benefited the people of both towns and the way the cooperation and agreements between the towns have, over time, forged vital connections that’ll never succumb to seasonal changes or inclement weather. Then and there, I realized that sometimes a ribbon cutting is about more than re-opening a road. For that, I am quite grateful.

Elk Calves Appearing In The Estes ValleyCaution Urged Around Protective Moms By: Kris Hazelton With the new baby elk calves and the proximity of the elk population to the Estes Park residents and visitors, everyone is urged to be on alert and know that the mothers are not being aggressive when defending their young, just protective. It’s our responsibility to not get too close to the baby or the mother during calving season. In the event that you encounter a protective mother elk anywhere in the Estes Valley, here are some helpful tips. Be aware. The best thing to do at this time of year is to be very aware of your surroundings. The cows have calves all over town and you just never know when

you’re going to happen to walk by a mother and calf. Back away. If you encounter a protective mother, the best thing to do is to back away quickly. Don’t turn your back on her, as you won’t know if she is charging you. Make yourself look large. If you have a jacket, raise it above your head, and swing it around, make yourself look for-

midable. Chances are the mother will be glad you’re leaving their space. However, if she continues to pursue you, check around for a stick and if one is available, pick it up and throw the stick at her or if she approaches, give her a whack on her nose to drive her away. Protect your head. If she is an especially protective mother and charges you to the

point of knocking you down, curl up in the fetal position and protect your head and neck with your arms and hands. She’ll most likely give you a couple of thumps with her legs and then leave you alone, not seeing you as a potential threat anymore. Advice for dog owners. If you happen to be walking or jogging with a dog, the elk will be even more on alert and aggressive towards your dog. She will see your pet as a real threat, a predator, to her baby. The best thing to do in this case is turn around and go the other way. If you can’t do that, let your dog go for the time, and save yourself. The elk will most likely chase off your dog and you can retrieve the dog a bit further down the trail. Change your route. If the elk are on the trail you frequent, there are miles of other trails, less used by the elk and it is suggested you alter your route for a few weeks to avoid potential problems. Although the elk are used to seeing people, the elk are very much still wild animals. Adult elk, both male and female, are very large and can be dangerous, particularly if they think a person is threatening their territory or offspring. Another important note, if you find a baby elk or mule deer, please never go near or touch it. Even though it could appear that its mother is absent, elk calves are seldom orphaned, and its mother is probably feeding only a short distance away. She’ll make herself known very quickly when you get too close! If you come across a protective female elk, and she is endangering people in a public area, the best thing to do is move away and call the Estes Park Police Department Dispatch Center at 586-4000. They will notify the proper authorities and the volunteers who will temporarily close off the area until the mother moves on with her calf. Educating ourselves and our visitors about wildlife issues is the right thing to do, especially around calving time and during the fall rut. Remember, there’s a reason it’s called

Wildlife Talk On Beavers Wildlife Talk–How Beavers Help Our Environment will be presented by The Wandering Wildlife Society, a part of the Estes Valley Watershed Coalition on June 9. Emily Fairfax, Assistant Professor, Environmental Science, California State University at Channel Islands will be hosting this online talk from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Emily’s research focuses on the ecohydrology of ri-

parian areas, particularly those that have been impacted by beaver damming. Beavers build dams, dig channels, and change small streams into broad wetland areas. This keeps plants green and lush, even during periods of drought and wildfires. Join our Zoom presentation to learn how beavers defend our environment against climate change.

MEDICINE FOR THE SOUL

ARE YOU LIVING IN THE TRUTH? One of the greatest questions in the world ever asked is, “what is truth?” Truth contains no contaminants. It is not soiled or stained by any part of a lie. You cannot find a thread of deception in it. It is pure. It is full of light and it will shine on anyone’s path that will look towards it. The devil will keep you from the truth. His master plan is to steal, kill and destroy your life and your families. He’ll sprinkle a little truth on your life, while at the same time, he’ll lead you down a dark road that ends in death and ultimately, a separation from God and all that is true! He wants your life filled with just enough truth to keep you deceived, yet at the same time, he’ll make you think what you believe is true. There is only one Truth in this world and it comes from the Word of God, the Bible. Jesus said to His Father, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. John 17:17. Psalm 119:160 reads, “The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.” Jesus said, Pastors Mark and Alice Wettengel “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no Pastors Mark and Alice Wettengel 720-561-9491 means pass away.” Mt.24:35. Sunday Service at 10 am Truth has the ability to go the distance and come out on top. Wednesday Bible Study at 7 pm Have you really, seriously looked at your life and know your Streaming being led down the path of truth? What if you are not? What if @facebook.com/EstesParkInternationalChurch you have been believing a lie? A half truth? Proverbs says, “There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.” Is your path heading to life, or is it heading to death? One thing about truth is that it will expose what is not true. That’s why you need to hear the Gospel. It’s a message of truth. All moral law has come out of its pages. It will help you to make the right decisions and keep you from going down the wrong path. It stops the devil in his tracks and exposes his tactics. It will give you life and your path will be blessed. Won’t you come to the truth? Ask Jesus to help you. We invite you to come to EPIC and be a part of a revolution for truth. 1820 S. St. Vrain Ave. Estes Park, CO 80517 Love you.

Flag Day Observance, June 14 Submitted by: Steve Irish, Commander, American Legion Post 119, Estes Park

TOUR THE

S TA N L E Y H O M E M U S E U M If these walls could talk, they would tell you a compelling tale of mountain life in early Estes Park through the eyes of the influential Flora & Freelan ("F.O.") Stanley and the domestic help who maintained their house, property, and way of life. To enter the door of the Stanleys’ 1904 Colonial Revival home is to pass through a frame into a painting, one with a time and life of its own. Be inspired as you take a step back in time with a guided tour of the original mountain home of the Stanleys. Advance reservations are suggested and tickets can be puchased online at www.StanleyHome.org. The full tour experience lasts two hours, with each tour beginning at the Estes Park Visitors Center. A well-marked shuttle will pickup guests from the east parking lot (near the electric vehicle charging stations), at the top of the hour.

“That the flag of the United States shall be of thirteen stripes of alternate red and white, with a union of thirteen stars of white in a blue field, representing the new constellation.” This was the resolution adopted by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. The resolution was made following the report of a special committee which had been assigned to suggest the flag’s design. Interestingly, the Flag Act of 1777 did not specify the pattern for the stars, the number of points on the stars, the width of the stripes or the canton (the blue field) or whether a white or red stripe should be first. This caused a proliferation of flag designs with the stars especially being in many different patterns. The American flag was first carried into battle on September 11, 1777, in the Battle of the Brandywine. It was first saluted by foreign naval vessels on February 14, 1778, when the Ranger, bearing the Stars and Stripes and under the command of Captain Paul Jones, arrived in a French port. The flag first flew over a foreign territory in early 1778 at Nassau, Bahama Islands, where Americans captured a British fort. Observance of the adoption of the flag was not soon in coming, however. Although there are many

claims to the first official observance of Flag Day, all but one took place more than an entire century after the flag’s adoption in 1777. 139 years later, both President Wilson, in 1916, and President Coolidge, in 1927, issued proclamations asking for June 14 to be observed as the National Flag Day. But it wasn’t until August 3, 1949, that Congress approved the national observance, and President Harry S. Truman signed it into law. (Source: U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, Washington D.C., and National Society Sons of the American Revolution) The American Legion, Post 119 at Circle 119 invites you to join us at our Flag Day ceremony, Tuesday, July 14 at 5:30 p.m., located at the intersection of Rte. 36 and Rte. 7 - 850 N.

Estes Park Archives This Saturday, June 11

Even quick watercolor sketches of 1870s Estes Park are historically significant, provided they are genuine. Photo courtesy eBay Inc.

Francis C. Penrose (1813-1903) was a British architect and astronomer who dabbled in watercolor painting. In July 1878, he traveled to Denver to observe a total solar eclipse. Following the eclipse, he evidently traveled to Golden and Estes Park, as a recent auction listing of nine different watercolors attributed to him, dated August 1878, would seem to attest. Although unsigned, the items appear to be genuine, as the artist refers to various local geographic locations as Willow Park, Diamond Spring and Este's Park, designations no longer used but common parlance or accepted variant spellings at the time. Additionally, the painting style and labeling method used is similar to later work clearly attributed to Penrose, as, for example, a plein air study of the estate surrounding a British school he helped build and run in Athens, Greece, in 1887. Installments of fellow compatriot Isabella Bird's account of her 1873 travels through Estes Park began appearing in the weekly British periodical "Leisure Hour" in March 1878. Whether this is what prompted Penrose to explore the region, or whether it was on the recommendation of another countryman (it's not like Estes Park was exactly a secret in 1878), Penrose's images of Estes Park seem purposefully anachronistic, as if he

intentionally avoided any angles that might include signs of civilization, like the growing Sprague homestead in what is now Moraine Park, or the well-established Estes Park Hotel along the current Fish Creek. In some cases, though, from where the artist appears to be located, these signs would have been impossible to avoid, unless one sat on the ground and looked straight up into the air. Because so few comparative stereoviews of Estes Park exist from this era (Isabella Bird, or her publisher, essentially stole the undated illustrations used in "A Lady's Life" from Joseph Collier, without attribution and in some cases misidentified as to location), should these putative 1878 visions of Estes Park be accepted as authentic and incorrectly dated, or simply fictional/pastoral? Join the Estes Park Archives this Saturday, June 11, at 9 a.m. for a free 45minute analysis of the putative locations and potential value of works attributed to Francis Penrose in 1878. Our true location is 240 Moraine Avenue, with nearby parking free until 10:00 a.m. We will sit outside if the weather is good. Coffee and donuts are also provided free of charge, and you don't need to be a member or even an Estes Park year-round resident to attend and share your own perspectives. Call 586-4889 for directions or more information.

Presentation To Estes Valley Crisis Advocates What an honor it was for the members of One Hundred Women Who Care – Estes Park to present a check to the Estes Valley Crisis Advocates. The Crisis Advocates are an incredible nonprofit organization in the Estes Valley who host a safe house for victims of domestic abuse and violence. But that is only one of the myriad of services they provide. A 24/7 Crisis Hot Line is available to offer emotional support. And in case of an accident, a robbery, a hate crime, or other challenging event, along with the response of our police department a representative of the Crisis Advocates will offer assistance as needed. The dedication and devotion of the professionals and volunteers of EVCA is extraordinary.

One Hundred Women Who Care --Estes Park is a philanthropic organization that is relatively new to town but in only three gatherings the membership has donated $18,900 to nonprofit organizations right here in Estes Park! At each one- hour meeting, information about three area nonprofits is presented and thereafter the members choose which organization they would like to donate their monies to from the meeting. No bake sales, no yard sales! We welcome you to join us for our next meeting on June 30th from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the home of Janet Collison, 3409 Eaglecliff Circle Drive at Windcliff. Following the meeting there will be an engaging time of fellowship. For further information, please email janet.collison@gmail.com.

Finding Rocky Mountain Wildflowers Marlene Borneman (right) will be sharing information about Rocky Mountain wildflowers, hikes, habitat, and when they bloom at the Estes Park Garden Club meeting. The meeting is Monday morning, June 13th, at 10:30, in the Hondius Room of the Estes Valley Public Library. The meeting is free and open to the public. Marlene has been photographing Colorado’s wildflowers while on her hiking and climbing adventures since 1974. She has earned her Native Plant Master Certification and is a member of the Colorado Native Plant Society. She is the author of Rocky Mountain Wildflowers 2 Ed., The Best Front Range Wildflower Hikes, and Rocky Mountain Alpine Flowers.

St. Bartholomew’s Yard Sale Save the Date-Saturday, June 18th from 9:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m. The Episcopal Church Women of St. Bartholomew’s Church at 880 MacGregor Avenue welcome you to attend their annual Yard Sale and Bake Sale. It’s an event not to be missed! Last year a large black bear graced the sale with his presence as he ambled over from the Black Canyon Inn-no doubt attracted by the wafting aromas of the

baked goods arrayed. The sale features crafts, lovely kitchen items, children’s clothing and toys, an array of collectibles, and the Bake Sale for which the ladies are renowned. Hopefully the day will be beautifully- sunny-but if not the Fellowship Hall inside the church is a great alternative site for the sale. Come and join the fun and fellowship!

You Can Help Save The Lives Of Our Bears! food availability, and it's best that they find their food in the wild. If food sources in town are limited, bears will likely spend more time in wild lands in their quest to fatten up. Estes Valley residents play a major role in keeping bears wild, we can help by being conscientious and not leaving any types of food available to bears.

Hilltop Guild Bazaar Aug. 6 Offers Bloodmobile

Give blood, buy a pie in Allenspark Aug. 6 A Vitalant bloodmobile will be stationed at the Kelley House, home of The Hilltop Guild in Allenspark, at the Guild's big annual Bazaar, Saturday, Aug. 6 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. To make an appointment, go to www.vitalant.org and follow the directions to donate. "This is another example of The Hilltop Guild's commitment to serving the wider community," said Jen Bell, president of the non-profit. "Blood is always needed here and across the country. And there's plenty of room for the bloodmobile and plenty of parking," she added. The Kelley House is located at 18720 Highway 7 outside Allenspark, halfway between Estes Park and Lyons.

In addition to the bloodmobile (new this year), the annual Bazaar offers homemade baked goods, sandwiches and desserts (pies!) plus fudge and peanut brittle for sale. The boutique inside the Kelley House will have a variety of hand-embroidered 100 percent cotton tea towels, jewelry, scrubbies and hand-woven items for sale from place mats to shoe laces. The White Elephant will be selling household goods, china, glassware and two wooden rocking chairs. The book trailer will have a variety of hardbacks and paperbacks, most of which will be fairly new and in excellent condition. And the jelly hut will be selling a variety of flavors, from local fruits handpicked, juiced and jellied. All flavors for $8 each. Come early for the dandelion jelly! See you at The Guild in Allenspark on Aug. 6, 2022.

Hilltop Guild Awards Seven Scholarships To Students In Estes Park And Lyons The Guild is an association of mountain women who live at least part of the time in and around Allenspark. They make and sell handicrafts from dandelion jelly to weavings, from quilts to peanut brittle. With the money they make from sales, particularly from the Annual Bazaar, which this year will be on Saturday, Aug. 6, they give scholarships to local high school students in Lyons, Allenspark and Estes Park. Members of the Education/Philanthropic Committee are Carol Halsey, Barb Coles and Donna Squyres. Hilltop Guild has been awarding student scholarships for almost 40 years and has, to date, helped more than 125 students with their education. That's a lot of tea towel sales! (Let's give a shout-out to former Allenspark resident Chloe Walker who graduated from Western Colorado State University in May with a degree in Biology. She received a scholarship from the Guild in 2018, which we like to think helped her on her way!) Four students from Lyons High School who received 2022 scholarships are: Hailey Odell, the Marjorie McCulloch Memorial Scholarship recipient of $2,000. Hailey will be attending the University of Iowa, Iowa City. She is majoring in English and Creative Writing. She already has published a book.

Get Your Tickets To See Daddy Long Legs Estes Park Community Theatre, in association with Music Theatre International, is excited to present the musical Daddy Long Legs June 17, 18, 19, 24, and 25th at the High School Theatre. The two-person cast stars Sean Johnson, an Estes Park native and musical theatre major at the University of Northern Colorado, and Lily Schmoker, also a theater major at UNC. Daddy Long Legs is an award-winning off-Broadway hit musical with book by John Caird (director of Les Miserables) and music and lyrics by Paul Gordon (East of Eden). It is based on the 1912 novel of the same name by Jean Webster. Set in turn-of-the-century New England, the musical follows Jerusha Abbott, who has grown up in an orphanage but is sent to college by a mysterious benefactor so she may learn to be a writer. She can never know who he is, so dubs him "Daddy Long Legs" after seeing his elongated shadow. The musical’s soaring melodies and heartwarming story make it wildly popular with all who see it. Denise Stookesberry, who recently directed Disenchanted and Spitfire Grill for the Fine Arts Guild, will direct the musical with pianist Cynthia Hunt, stage manager Kathy Littlejohn, and with a set designed by the legendary Greig Steiner. Mark your calendars now for the opening of this very special musical. You don’t want to miss it! Tickets and more information at www.fineartsguild.org.

Estes Park Walk For The Hungry, July 17, 2022

The Estes Park Walk for the Hungry will be Sunday, July 17, and go around Lake Estes. It will start from the Estes Park Visitors Center at 1:00 p.m., gathering at the Southeast corner of the Visitors Center. The need for food aid around the world today is greater than any time since World War II. The director of the World Food Bank of the United Nations has said, “We are having to take food from the hungry to give it to the starving.” The situation in Ukraine is just the most recent manifestation of the problem, but probably the most publicized in the news. The Russian intrusion into Ukraine has resulted in the bombing of the two largest grocery warehouses in the country, destroying millions of dollars of food resources for the country’s grocery stores, restaurants, hospitals, schools and other institutions. Then a soup kitchen that provided meals for refugees was

bombed. Prices for food, of course, have skyrocketed. In the Middle eastern nation of Yemen, a war between Saudi Arabia and Iran made the distribution of food aid by the United Nations World Food aid almost impossible; as a result thousands of children are starving. These are just the most glaring situations of need in the world today. Cyclones which hit Southeast Asia and East Africa, as well as drought and famines in large portions of Africa have caused destruction of crops and food insecurity. We hope you will mark your calendars for the Estes Park Walk for the Hungry on July 17. Sponsor sheets for walkers to sign up sponsors will be available soon from churches and other organizations. Contact me by phone at 970-586-0578 if you or an organization you are a part of would like to be part of the effort. My address is 3816 Dollar Lake Drive, Estes

7th Annual Friends Of Folk Festival 2022

Honoring the Legacy of our late friend Dick Orleans On Tuesday, June 21, at 2 p.m., the Estes Arts District will kick off their 7th annual Friends of Folk Festival – even bigger and better this year – and it's built for the locals. Dick Orleans was always encouraging others to pursue their art whether music, photography, or whatever it might be... and he inspired many. The Estes Arts District strives to carry the torch forward with Dick's goal in mind of encouraging new artists to perform. He brought a spotlight to new talents and encouraged ever evolving musical influences into the Friends of Folk style of entertainment. This unique style encompassed classic, well loved music; mixed with fresh new voices to create an

exciting night of entertainment. This is what we strive to create with the Friends of Folk Festival. In addition, a scholarship fund has been established with Dick’s passions in mind. Origins: Dick hosted “Friends of Folk” on Friday nights – an open mic to encourage people to perform; followed by a headliner, or main act. Not long after his sudden and unexpected passing, the Friends of Folk Festival was started for locals, and it remains so. It is always on a Tuesday to promote locals coming into town when they might not otherwise (during peak season). Now in its seventh year, we continue to carry the momentum of the past while working to grow this event bigger and better for the future.

This year's musical lineup packs diversity and high quality talent; from the lyrical stories of Aaron LaCombe and high energy Americana of The Sweet Lillies, to the Jam Grass of local favorite Chain Station, plus add soul and hip hop from The Reminders, and the SweatySoul-Funk dance music of the nine-piece brass magic that is The Burroughs – one of Colorado's hottest bands. We want to promote untapped and unknown talent to the people of Estes Park. Our local musicians will be sprinkled into this diverse mix – and the diversity and better quality talent will draw more people – with our target demographic being 8 to 80 (+/-). Did you say scholarship? Yes! Our reach doesn't stop with the end of the festival. The scholarships we give out allow local artists to pursue needs and desires – from the simplicity of painting supplies; to a special lens for shooting wedding photography. One recipient used his scholarship money to pay his rent during the pandemic so that he could remain focused on his music. Another used her scholarship to for product development and marketing to expand her small batch line of sauces. Applying is simple and easy; visit www.estesartsdistrict.org and follow the buttons under the “Friends of Folk” drop down menu. Vendors will have a presence as well. As long as they file with the Town of Estes (a $25 special event licensing fee), we'll provide them a table on site to show off and sell their wares. (Music isn’t the only form of art we are supporting at Friends of Folk Festival!). This is a free event because we believe in everyone having access to live music, as well as celebrating locals for their hard work and dedication to the community, especially after this past year. WHAT? Friends of Folk Festival!

WHEN? Tuesday, June 21st- starting at 2, it will run until 10 p.m. WHERE? Performance Park - 435 West Elkhorn Ave. (a mini Red Rocks) TICKETS? You don't need tickets! It's FREE! FOOD & BEVERAGES? Food trucks will be on site, as well as craft beverages (no outside alcohol is permitted). The Estes Arts District is a 501(c) 3 and proceeds from donations as well as sales of craft beverages go back into the community as we strive to cultivate newer, better, and more art (and art programs) for the Estes Valley. The Estes Arts District would like to extend sincere thanks to the generous support of these sponsors: • Laura Jane Musser Fund • Town of Estes Park • Bohemian Foundation • Community Foundation of Northern Colorado • Kind Coffee • Quality Inn • Estes Arts District • Visit Estes Park • Avant Garde Aleworks • Snowy Peaks Winery • SnowyGrass • Rambo's Longhorn Liquor Mart • Tom Thomas Realtor First Colorado Realty • Heidi Riedesel Madison & Co.

Newcomers’ Fire Mitigation Project Receives Two $5,000 Donations

Expect Aggressive Wildlife Behavior This Time Of Year From Mothers Defending Their Young Many birds and mammals give birth this time of the year. Now through the end of June, newborn wildlife will be found across the landscape and it is important that when they are observed, that people do so from a distance and never try to interact with them. Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials issue this annual advisory to avoid elk,

into what could be a dangerous situation. “As people are recreating for the next three or four weeks, they should be keeping their dogs on a leash or leaving them at home,” said Kristin Cannon, Deputy Regional Manager with CPW’s Northeast region. “They should be aware of their surroundings and should give all wildlife plenty of space.”

People that feed, touch or remove wildlife from their natural environment actually cause them harm and are not helping the young animals. The best practice is to leave young wildlife alone, untouched in their natural habitat so they can grow and thrive in the wild. On Friday in Evergreen, wildlife officers had to take a fawn from a resident

who thought it was abandoned. If you see a newborn fawn without its mother nearby, that is normal. Deer, elk and pronghorn mothers hide their young for long periods of time while foraging. Young that have been removed cannot be successfully returned to the wild, as the mother will not continue searching for a missing baby or reject it because it was handled by humans and may no longer smell like her fawn. How can humans help young wildlife?

moose and deer that have newborn calves and fawns this time of year. There have been two recent moose attacks that resulted in injuries to people in northwest Colorado, both of which were from cows exhibiting defensive behavior of their nearby calves. One was on a woman running on a trail in Breckenridge on May 26. The second was on May 31 in Grand Lake when a woman encountered a moose five-feet away in some willows near her home. As she started running away, she fell down and then felt the moose stomp on her back and head. These incidents serve as examples that wildlife are just that, wild, and they can act in unpredictable ways. CPW reminds the public to respect wildlife and their space, especially this time of the year. “Cows will be exhibiting normal protective behavior of their young,” said Shannon Schaller, Deputy Regional Manager with CPW’s Northeast region. “Give wildlife extra space this time of year. Be sure to keep dogs on leashes. Dogs can trigger aggressive behavior and both moose and elk will chase a dog right back to their owner, presenting a dangerous situation.” Having dogs off leash often escalates run-ins with wildlife from just a sighting

CPW produced a video illustrating how people can be safe and responsible around moose. The video is available on YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6Qj9K_eJJ E&t=2s Video of a newborn calf with its mother during the May 31-June 1 snow that hit Colorado’s high country:

One way to avoid an unnecessary runin with a moose is to steer clear of thick willow habitat in riparian areas where they are likely to be found eating or resting. Their calves, born in a 3-4 week period from the end of May to mid-June, are often lying in the willows while their mother is off grazing. Calves, which weigh 26-28 pounds at birth, typically gain about two pounds of weight per day, reaching weights of 385-400 pounds by October.

youtu.be/B2wk2oHUdas Elk calves are typically born in locations where cover, forage and water are in juxtaposition in late May or early June. A single calf is typical, twins are rare. Calves weigh between 28-35 pounds at birth and are covered with small white spots for their first few months of their lives. On Wednesday, wildlife officers rescued a elk calf out of a window well in Genesee Village.

Do not approach, touch or feed wild animals. Enjoy wildlife from a safe distance. Keep your dog on a leash and on trails. If you find a wild animal that appears sick or injured, leave it alone. Call your local Colorado Parks and Wildlife office and talk to a trained wildlife official for guidance.

The Old Gallery in Allenspark Welcomes Four New Artists Four new artists will be featured at The Old Gallery in Allenspark this summer, joining 21 other regional and local artists. They are Eli Roehl, jewelry; Andrew Treaster, photography; Julie Zuniga, ceramics and David Duey, woodworking. Eleanor (Eli) Roehl creates one-of-akind jewelry in her remote studio in the shadow of a 14,000 foot peak in the Rocky Mountains. Very concerned about protecting our environment, she uses hand-built, recycled metal in abstract

and expressionistic designs. Her designs compliment the stones she personally selects making each truly unique. The colorful, semiprecious stones in her designs often draw from the vibrant colors of the Caribbean, where she once lived. Roehl is currently incorporating Native American spirit and power fetishes in many of

her new designs. David Duey cut his woodworking teeth as a carpenter’s helped while he was still in high school With a lifetime of building and workshop experience, he now concentrates on small furniture and decorative boxes featuring urban harvested domestic woods. He frequently uses milk paint, quality fabrics, metal leaf, shell dots, carving, wood burning and plant-based finishes. Julia Zuniga is an art educator and ceramic

artist whose work is inspired by the colorful and chaotic streets of her hometown of Miami, Florida, as well as bold designs that are characteristic of preColumbian and Ukrainian pottery and textiles. “Historically pottery has connected people to the earth and has been celebrated as a vehicle for food and libations,” said Zuniga. “When creating my work, I think about this history and how it allows me to connect with my ancestors and community.” Andrew Treaster is a nature and

wildlife photographer specializing in the Rocky Mountains and American West. Through his extensive travels from his hometown in Kansas to Colorado (on family vacations), and then to South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia, Andrew developed a passion for capturing beautiful images and sharing them with

the world. When he moved to Colorado, he began focusing on documenting Rocky Mountain National Park and other U.S. National Parks. His goal is to transport the viewer through his art and to convey the same sense of wonder that inspired his creation of the image. “We’re very excited to have these four talented artists displaying their work at The Old Gallery,” said Stained Glass Artist and The Old Gallery Artists Chair Sally Van Der Kamp. The 25 regional and local artists who display and sell

their creations at The Old Gallery have been busy painting, woodworking, weaving and making ceramics in preparation for the summer season. She added, “There’s something for everyone here!” Other featured artists include Ann Barnsley, Kitty Burton, Darlene Bushue,

Patty Dwyer, Leslie Emerson, George Epp, Lyn Ferguson, Elizabeth Hake, Patti Harrison, Susan Krauth, Sheila Marie, Mary Morse, Juli Neri, Jennifer Nicholson, Cheryl Pennington, Lois Rentz, MaryLynn Schumacher, Linda Toukan, Merrie Wicks and Dawn Wilson. The Old Gallery is also home to The Rocky Mountain Nature Conservancy Store. It’s the only one located outside of Rocky Mountain National Park and on the west side of the park. You’ll find tshirts, mugs, children’s plush toys, guide books and more that celebrate Rocky Mountain National Park, Wild Basin and other favorite trails. The Old Gallery is a center for community, arts and visitors and is located at 14863 Hwy. 7 in Allenspark. The Old Gallery provides a wide range of services include the twice-monthly Community Cupboard Food Bank, Community Closet, concerts, yoga and wellness classes, tourist information and providing a home to 25 local and regional artists to display and sell their creations. It is only 20 minutes from Estes Park and Lyons.

“YOU’RE IN MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS!” How often have we heard / read those words lately? We’ve heard them uttered by our President, Vice-President, Governor, police personnel and myriads of individual citizens. They are words that are timely and needed during our time of shootings, wars, fire and other natural disasters, and other group and individual tragedies. And these words are so needed, especially at a time when it seems like we…perhaps anyone…can do little else. Few viable ‘solutions’ seem to be forthcoming…but we can keep victims in our thoughts and prayers. However, there are some things which must be considered when we think about the prayers we and others are offering. First of all, are we…they…on ‘speakin’ terms with the lord?’ I shared in the past about someone asking me that question years ago. They needed God’s help and thought my prayers could help…but only if I was in a good relationship with God, ‘on speakin’ terms with the Lord’. So that is a question I should answer about myself and others who are currently asking help needed from the Lord. There are many whom we might ask… after watching their ongoing behavior, ‘is there ‘anyone else’ who can help me?’ David once said: “If I regard iniquity in my heart, God will not hear me!” (Psa. 66:18) And the same is true of me, you, or others who might be praying for our welfare without having maintained that good relationship with God. Why should we expect Him to answer…and help? J.B. Phillips wrote a bestselling book several years ago, entitled ‘Your God Is Too Small’. In his book he described the different ‘pictures’ that people have of God. Some see Him as a ‘Heavenly Policeman’, present to accuse and punish people when they fail. Some see Him as a ‘Heavenly Grandfather’ or ‘Santa Claus’ with an unending caring, forgiving, helping spirit. Millions more view God as “God in a Box”. Such a ‘God’ is tucked away but readily available to them whenever they need His services. (like Batman?) They ‘pluck Him’ out of the ‘box’ when they…or others…are in trouble, and tell Him their troubles, being confident that He will ‘deliver them’ from their distress. When the crisis is past they ‘put Him back into the box’ until they need Him again. I assure you that the God we deal with is none of these! So how do I know if ‘I’m on speakin terms with God?’ Let me suggest some things that can help us know. First of all, am I living a life that would show Him that I’m a friend of His? If my life is continually lived outside of His will, disregarding His law, shared freely in His Word, what makes me think that He is longing to meet my needs in time of trouble? Think of an estranged son, disregarding his father’s wishes continually, coming to his father with his ‘requests’ frequently. What response would he receive? Second of all, if, by my life, He knows that I am trying to please Him, I still have to ‘ask’! The writer James stated it plainly: “If you ask not, you receive not!” We need to be a praying people! Are those people we referred to above as concerned about our present ‘crises’, regularly ‘praying’ people? Are we? Several times we are encouraged to ‘pray without ceasing’, and especially when something is of great concern to us. Again, we know how it is when ‘our’ children come to us. If they ask for something one time, rarely mentioning it again, how do we respond, compared to when they keep on ‘begging us’ for something? When Jesus said: “Ask and you shall receive!” the word ‘ask’ means ‘keep on asking’, and you shall receive. For His children, God stands ready to meet their most dire needs, not just their whims. Third of all, ask for that which is according to God’s will. Again, James warns us about asking for things which we selfishly want. Jesus practiced, and taught, that we should ask ‘according to God’s will’. God knows what is best for us and others and longs for His children to ask for those things. Fourth of all, if you ‘are’ or ‘aren’t’ on ‘speakin terms with the Lord’, ask others you know, to ‘speak to Him’ on your behalf. Nothing pleases me more than for someone to ask me, or those of us who meet together on Fish Creek, to add their name to my / our prayer list. Or call me at 720530-6446 and we can meet and pray together for whatever is on your heart. Let’s all get on ‘speakin terms’ with the Lord. And then, let’s ‘speak’. He listens! And helps! Bob Lewis

Dakota And Ash Need New, Loving Homes Ash is about three years old. He really likes the girl kitty Dakota that we have. He was surrendered because he didn't get along with the male cat in the home, which could be just an environmental situation or because it was a rival boy cat, so a home without a boy cat is probably the best place for him. He is very loving and affectionate and an all around sweet and fun guy. He has lived with dogs and seems just fine with them. Ash is on a special diet for bladder stones and does great on it. Dakota is about two years old. She is a Russian Blue mix. She seems to do just fine with other kitties. A mellow dog would be okay. She has been waiting for her new home for about three weeks. She is up to date on shots and spayed. Dakota enjoys treats and catnip. Both of these sweet cats are currently living at the Pet Lodge. Call (970) 2861652 to meet either of these awesome kitties. All pets are offered through the Pet Association of Estes Park, a nonprofit organization that is your local humane society. You can make a tax-deductible donation to the Pet Association by sending your check to P.O. Box 4342, Estes Park, CO 80517.

Growing Healthy Families With Community Gardening

EVICS Family Resource Center provides young children and their families with the opportunity to grow, harvest, learn about, and taste fresh vegetables. On Friday, June 3rd, families joined us as we moved our seedlings from their starter kits into the community garden plots. These families are on a rotation so they will all share the responsibility of watering and caring for the vegetables. We are so thankful to the Estes Valley Community Garden for giving us this opportunity to share with families, as well as providing educational support since many of us are new to high elevation gardening. We are excited for these little ones to get to see the results of their labor and learn where food comes from.

Crossroads Ministry Is Grateful For Community Support By: Brian Schaffer

The summer season is speeding up and we’re feeling the rush with a steady increase of new people coming into town. Some of the new workers are trying to “make ends meet” and are finding out it’s a little more challenging in real time to make their plan work out. We exist to step in the gap when the basic necessities of life fall short, so send people our way that you know who are struggling. Last week I met a young man from Oklahoma who was traveling to the northwest in search of a better life. We were able to get him a few bags of groceries and a fuel voucher to fill up his tank at a local gas station. On another day our Client Advocate, Jess Borries, met with a mother and her daughter to explore viable solutions for their current situation. As of last week they are camping and sometimes sleeping in their car while they figure things out. We’re here to help them in the process and stepping in with resources as it seems appropriate. Our Meals on Wheels Coordinator, Michelle Purdy, made special arrangements to meet with a couple who are homebound and desire to receive two hot meals every day that will be delivered to their door. We generally work on a sliding scale for payment for the meals depending on what they can afford. This particular couple is struggling in their retirement days and will need someone to cover the $6 per meal fee. We don’t mention this much, but if you’d like to adopt them for a month’s worth of meals it would be $180. You can donate online or send in a check with MOW donation in the memo. We would greatly appreciate your

help as we make sure no one goes hungry in our town. Speaking of feeding hungry people, Antonio’s Pizza prepared 30 large pizzas for families who are connected to Crossroads. It was an incredible experience for me to witness the cars that pulled into our parking lot to get their pizza; especially the ones that had their kids in the car. I personally delivered a few of the pizzas to the families and when I released them into the hands of the parents the kids cheered and excitement filled the car. As I approached the final car on Wednesday they were expecting to receive one pizza, but since they had a large family and I had an extra pizza, I asked if they would like two pizzas and the Mom said, “Really?! That would be so great! Thank you so much!” We were blessed to be the link that connected families to the generous provision of pizzas from Anthony DeSousa. To learn more about this amazing business owner, go to: www.worldpizzachampions.com/anthony-desousa In conclusion, I would like to share some very exciting news about our Neighbors in Need Challenge that was going on during the months of April and May. We had a goal of matching dollar for dollar the $100,000 that was given for this, and I can say “We did it!” It took many people giving individual donations ranging from $15 to $8,000. Each donation combined with all the others pushed us over the $100,000 mark. Thank you to everyone who participated in this! We are truly grateful for your support.

So far, 2022 has not been a good year for investors. In fact, we’re moving into bear market territory. What should you know about bear markets? And how should you respond? To begin with, a bear market occurs when a stock market index, such as the S&P 500, falls at least 20% from its most recent high point. You might think this type of drop is rare, but that’s not actually the case. Historically, bear markets have occurred every few years and are a normal feature of the investment landscape. We experienced a bear market fairly recently, from mid-February 2020 through late March of that same year. What causes bear markets? Each one is different, but the current one is largely the result of several factors, including high inflation, rising interest rates, the war in Ukraine and global supply chain problems. When will the financial markets again start moving in a positive direction? No one can say for sure, but in any case, it’s not really a good idea to make investment decisions based on what may happen next in the financial markets. Instead, consider these moves: • Be patient. It can be challenging to look at your investment statements during these days. But you’ll help yourself by taking a long-term view. Consider this: From March 2009 until the end of 2021, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained more than 460%. So, if you’ve been investing for a while, compare where you are now to where you were 10 or 12 years ago. You’ve probably made pretty good progress over this time – and 10 years from now, the current downturn may not look like such a big event, either. • Review your risk tolerance. If you’re

having a hard time coping with investment losses – even if they’re just “paper losses” for now – you may want to review your tolerance for risk and see if it’s still the same as it was when you began investing. Even without a bear market, people’s risk tolerance can change, especially as they approach retirement. • Review your goals. A bear market is not meaningless, but by itself, it shouldn’t cause you to change your long-term goals. And if your goals haven’t changed, neither should your investment strategy. • Look for buying opportunities. During a down market, you can find quality investments at attractive prices. So, you could take this opportunity to fill gaps in your portfolio or add shares of investments that you already own and that you believe have good prospects for growth. • Get some help. When trying to navigate a lengthy market downturn, it can be useful to get some support and guidance. Consider this: Among investors who work with a financial advisor, 84% said that doing so gave them a greater sense of comfort about their finances during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a survey conducted in 2020 by Age Wave and Edward Jones. And getting professional help may provide the same type of reassurance during the current market turmoil. A bear market is never enjoyable. But taking the long view and making moves appropriate for your needs can help you get through this period and look ahead to better days. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by our local Edward Jones Financial Advisors. Edward Jones. Member SIPC.

Journaling, Mindfulness, And Movement: Summer Workshop To Stay Calm And Centered As you plan summer activities, give yourself the treat of reading for pleasure. Whether it’s under a shade tree, in a comfy chair or hammock, or listening to audiobooks when walking or doing chores, reading is healthy for the mind and spirit—allowing us to relax while stimulating our minds and creativity. This year’s Summer Reading Program at the Estes Valley Library makes reading easy, with prizes and programs for all ages.

levels of experience are welcome, including beginners. For ages 4 to 10, “Kids Ocean Mindfulness and Movement” takes place in the outdoor Yoga Deck on Tuesday, June 14 from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. Kids will learn how to stay centered through sea creature games and stories, along with kid-friendly mindfulness and yoga activities. Diana Laughlin from Estes Park Yoga

Inspired by this year’s reading theme, “Oceans of Possibilities,” the library has invited local yoga instructor Diana Laughlin to lead two upcoming workshops, one for adults and teens, and one especially for kids. For adults and teens, “Journaling and Ocean Mindfulness” takes place Wednesday, June 15 from 10 to 11 a.m. Participants may attend in-person at the outdoor Yoga Deck, or attend via Zoom.

Visit estesvalleylibrary.org to register up for either workshop, and learn all about the Summer Reading Program, log your reading time and earn prizes now through July 30.

Journeys Into Nature: Kevin Cook Discusses Knowing “The Facts” “Grandma advised feeding the baby birds with bits of bread dunked in milk,” remembers nature instructor and writer Kevin Cook. “I did, but they all died by the next day. Grandma was wrong about feeding baby birds, dead wrong from the baby birds’ perspective. Obviously, Grandma didn’t know the facts about baby birds.” Kevin Cook will be the guest at the library this Monday for the next program in a series of monthly nature talks. “A Naturalist’s Desiderata: the Facts” takes place Monday, June 13 at 4 p.m. Participants can choose to attend in-person or to watch live via Zoom. Nestlings of horned larks, like those pictured in the photography by Kati Fleming, are among the discoveries that nature enthusiasts of all ages might chance upon, whether on a trail or searching the trees in one’s backyard. Our human interface with these alluring species is impacted by the knowledge, awareness and self-discipline we bring with us on these encounters. Cook will share stories from his life’s journey into nature and how that may inform our present and future interactions. “Desideratum” is a term referring to something needed, wanted or desired, and more fully as the ideals by which a person guides passage through life. During 2022, Cook is applying 12 monthly

desiderata to the journey of the nature enthusiast. This month’s talk is focused on “The Facts.” Since earning his degrees in biology and wildlife biology from Western State College and Colorado State University, Kevin Cook has worked full-time as a writer-naturalist. He has explored Colorado to experience its wildlife firsthand, with a special focus on addressing the issues that arise between people and the natural world. For 37 years, Cook served as a nature columnist for the “Fort Collins Coloradoan” newspaper. He writes natural history columns for many other publications and leads wildlife observation tours. He teaches wildlife classes and

presents regular lectures at several Colorado venues. To sign up for this month’s program, visit the Library Events Calendar at estesvalleylibrary.org, where you can choose the in-person or Zoom sign-up option.

The Coming Changes By: Judi Smith

As I write this, we are headed out of California toward Northern Nevada. As we drive, the blanket of clouds is indicative of a storm – but there is no water involved. I never really understood the term “dry storm” – or rather – I thought it only applied to my teenage years in West Texas. Here, we see miles and miles of dead, dry grass dotted with irrigated oases of apricot, pistachio, and almond trees – but even the vegetation under the trees is dry and brown. We wonder what kind of irrigation causes this. Maybe, some type of drip system to direct water to precisely where it is needed? Neverthe-less, as we drive eastward there are significantly less cars on the road; the earth is greener; the sky is bluer. The difference is invigorating. It has been 13 years, give or take, since we have been to the San Francisco-Oakland metropolitan area which I remember as always a relief after a week or two in the Greater Los Angeles complex. Until last Tuesday, our daughter lived in Lafayette, CA, a relatively affluent community of about 25,000. We used to consider Lafayette “out” of the city smog. We were not prepared for the atmospheric changes. Greenhouse gases do more than increase the temperature. They are insidious and pervasive. I had forgotten the “side effects” of extended time in thicker air. Nothing seems to stay clean. I could feel the difference in my breathing, despite the air conditioning purifier and my mask. If this is indicative of our future – I do not want it! Greenhouse gases (ghg) do more than simply increase the temperature. They affect the food supply, the business world, education, dehydration, and daily life. Schools and businesses in many parts of the world are changing their usual hours to avoid the afternoon heat in non-air-conditioned buildings. Without sufficient water, some fields are left fallow, even in the USA. I knew this, but to see it is to believe it. Thankfully, the world is changing. Driving across Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming we saw large, obviously airconditioned barns, along with huge solar arrays and elegant windmills creating

the electricity to run them. The recent snowpack melt left Wyoming grassland green and inviting. Across Wyoming, solar panels in isolated locations ran lights, signals, electronic speed limit signs, road cameras, and cell towers with microwave dishes. We used the Internet to research what we saw as we traveled: In 2007-8, Nevada Gold Mining built a coal fired electrical plant. In 2020, they began to convert it to “dual-fuel” production, incorporating natural gas to produce half the required energy. Now that this adjustment is nearing completion, the next step they are planning is the introduction of a 200 MW solar array, converted (presumably to replace coal) in two 100 MW sections. Their other plant, near Reno, already produces energy from natural gas and solar. However, the most interesting discovery we made as we traversed I-80 was the canal system in Elko County, Nevada. Built off the Humbolt River, the canals are used for drainage, farming, and electricity. Piped water from the Elko Reservoir creates lush green fields in the high desert of Nevada. With the trends to work from home, people will drive less. electric vehicles and public transportation will also help reduce ghg on our highways and in our cities. Solar and wind are avenues to improved energy sources (both public and private). We saw a major site in Nevada that draws power from hot springs, but heat pumps also employ geo-thermal energy. Progress on new laws will address the proliferation of single use “stuff ” and create a circular economy to limit landfill use. But all of this only works if the populace participates. We must do more than just vote. We must accept the necessity. We must invest in the solutions. We must shut off the faucet; walk the extra steps to the “right” trashcan; educate ourselves, then share with our families and our friends. We must protect what We have, before it is too late to reverse the changes. Agree? Disagree? Comments RRRcyc@signsandwishes.com.

Mary Jo Heyen

On Sunday June 5, 2022, Mary Jo Heyen died peacefully at home with Joe, her high school sweetheart and husband of 52 years, by her side. These past few weeks our home has been filled with tears and laughter, grief and gratitude. Her desire for her obituary was that it be kept simple. A quote from one of her favorite mystics, Teresa de Avila, “The closer one approaches to God, the simpler one becomes.” Mary Jo enjoyed a wonderful 30 year career as a high school Spanish teacher and is still in close relationship with many of her students. At age 55 she returned to her life’s calling and that was to explore sacred relationships that come in our dreams and help us remember our soul self. She was a Practitioner of Natural Dreamwork, working with clients throughout the world and hospice patients and families to help them find the healing medicine in every dream. Her experiences of this are shared in

her book, “Dreaming into the Mystery: Explorations into the Dreams and Visions of the Dying.” A friend recently asked Mary Jo, “Are you going to have a Celebration of Life?” She said, “I already did! And what’s so delicious is that I got to attend. During these past few weeks there has been such an outpouring of love and support from so many beautiful people. They shared their memories of me and what my presence has meant to them. I got to hear all this sweetness while I’m still here to receive all this love. Their words and love help carry me over this next threshold.” Both Joe and Mary Jo express deep appreciation to Drs. Norris and Payden and the entire staff at Timberline Medical and to Nancy Bell and Kathleen Theriault at Hospice of Estes Valley. Please visit www.allnuttestespark.com to leave a message to Joe and family. To be continued…
