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

ever, 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.

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 Protect your head. If she is an especially protective mother and charges you close off the area until the mother moves to the point of knocking you down, curl on with her calf. Educating ourselves and our visitors up in the fetal position and protect your about wildlife issues is the right thing to head and neck with your arms and do, especially around calving time and durhands. She’ll most likely ing the fall rut. give you a couple of thumps with her legs and Remember, there’s a reason it’s called wildlife. 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

Be Aware Of Swift Water Danger When Recreating In Rocky Mountain National Park As temperatures increase and thunderstorms occur, visitors to Rocky Mountain National Park should be aware that mountain streams can be dangerous especially in late spring and early summer. Don’t underestimate the power of water. Park visitors are reminded to remain back from the banks of streams and rivers. Rocks at streamside are often slippery. Water is extremely cold and can be deceivingly deep. Water levels generally rise in the afternoon and follow thunderstorms. Always provide

proper supervision for children, who by nature, tend to be attracted to water. Powerful currents can quickly pull a person underwater. Due to rapid snow melt, area trails and bridges may become impassable due to rising water levels. If you encounter impassable areas, be prepared to back track to alternate hiking routes. For further information about Rocky Mountain National Park, please visit 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 June 7 at 12:28 p.m. police were called to 451 E. Wonderview, Safeway parking lot. Upon arrival they issued a summons to a 79 year old male from Estes Park for reckless endangerment. On June 12 at 7:25 a.m. police were called to a verbal disturbance at 534 S. St. Vrain Ave. Upon arrival they charged a 24 year old female from North Carolina with domestic violence and harassment and she was transported to the Larimer County Jail. On June 13 at 1:48 a.m. police cited a 37 year old male from Illinois with disorderly conduct in the 100 block of Rockwell St. On June 13 at 12:49 p.m. police discovered a 36 year old female from Drake, CO who was involved in a motor vehicle accident was wanted on a warrant out of the Lubbock Co. Sheriff’s Office for danger-

ous drugs. She was arrested and transported to the Larimer County Jail. On June 13 at 4:27 p.m. police were called to 455 E. Wonderview about a theft. Upon arrival they issued a summons for municipal theft to a 63 year old female from Estes Park. She was later released. On June 16 at 9:15 a.m. police were called to 555 Prospect Ave. on a disturbance. Upon arrival they issued a summons to a 38 year old male from Estes Park for second degree criminal trespass and criminal mischief and he was later released. On June 16 at 10:38 p.m. police were called to a disturbance in the parking lot at 101 S. St. Vrain Ave. Upon arrival they arrested a 24 year old male from Arizona and a 22 year old female from Estes Park and charged them both with third degree assault, harassment and domestic violence and transported them to the Larimer County Jail.

Larimer County Presents 2019 Environmental Stewardship Awards The Board of Larimer County Commissioners and the Environmental Science and Advisory Board honored three individuals/organizations Monday for their outstanding work with Environmental Stewardship in Larimer County at the 23rd Annual Environmental Stewardship Awards. Including this year’s awards, 88 individuals or groups have been recognized since the program began in 1995. The awards are given to individuals, businesses, and groups that engage in activities that exemplify outstanding stewardship of the environment. The award winners for 2019 are: 1. The Village Thrift Shop The Village Thrift Shop of Estes Park receives used household goods as donations. The store’s mission is to recycle all the goods they receive either through re-selling or through proper disposal with recycling programs – nothing goes to the landfill as “trash.” Thrift Shop employees also educate their community about the importance of diverting usable goods from the landfill and recycling. All proceeds from the shop’s sales of donated goods go back to the community as grants to local non-profit organizations - in 2018, they donated over $180,000 to 51 different groups. 2. Shambhala Mountain Center The Shambhala Mountain Center [SMC] lies in the mountain community of Red Feather Lakes. Like many properties in that area, it is heavily timbered which makes it susceptible to high-severity wildfires. To increase the resiliency of their property, the SMC collaborated with several land stewardship organizations to reduce forest fuels by thinning 118 acres of dense forest. The SMC property lies adjacent to other large-scale fuels reduction efforts, so their project increases the overall footprint and efficacy of those previous efforts. The SMC’s landscape-scale treatment resulted in significant environmental stewardship, which reduces wildfire

risk, improves wildlife habitat, protects clean water resources, improves forest health and community protection. Their project is an important example of effective land stewardship, which greatly contributes to the resiliency of the Red Feather Lakes mountain community. The SMC worked with several partners including the Fort Collins Conservation District, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Colorado State Forest Service, and Morgan Timber Products. 3. Laura Tyler – Fort Collins Conservation District Laura Tyler saw the need to divert a common agricultural waste product bailing twine - from the Colorado landfills. Partnering with Waste-Not Recycling in Johnstown and the Fort Collins Conservation District, Laura started the Twine Recycling Program, which collects bailing twine from dropoff points in Larimer County. The program then recycles it into pellets using a pelletizer purchased with a CDPHE grant. Those pellets are then sold as source material for manufacturing new plastic-based goods. Over 13,000 miles [68 million feet] of twine have been recycled, mostly from Northern Colorado. Laura works with many youth groups like Future Farmers of America and 4-H groups who assist with the collection of the twine and learn about the benefits of the recycling program. Bailing twine is a hazard when left in the environment. Birds collect it and incorporate it into their nests, where the young and adults are at risk of entanglement. Livestock and wildlife eat the twine, which can lead to death. In some cases, twine is piled and burned leading to air pollution. And when left in the environment to degrade, or ground-up with hay, it becomes microplastics that pollute our soil or waterways. Removing it from the environment, diverting it from landfills and recycling it is a great example of a longterm sustainable solution for improving the environment.

Written by professional photographer and avid outdoorsman who has spent the last 15 years hiking every trail in the park, this guide covers everything you need to know to have a safe and amazing experience in one of our nation's most beautiful national parks. "The Rocky Mountain Conservancy, which since 1931 has served as the philanthropic steward of Rocky Mountain National Park, recommends Erik Stenland's book. His message is very much our own." - Jim Pickering, RMC Board President Erik Stensland was born in Minnesota and moved with his family to Montana where he developed his deep love for the mountains. After several years working in the Balkans for a nonprofit initiative, where Erik met his wife Joanna, they decided to return to the

United States and settled in Colorado with their son Luke. Erik quickly became intimate with Rocky Mountain National Park and opened his own gallery in Estes Park in 2007. Erik has authored several books including Wild Light: A Celebration of Rocky Mountain National Park. This book is the result of work spanning over a decade of exploring and photographing this unique wilderness. Two new books that Eric has published are Memories of Rocky Mountain National Park and Photographing Rocky Mountain National Park. Memories is a paperback version of Wild Lights but includes all new photographs that have never been published in book form before. Photographing Rocky Mountain National Park is a landscape photographers guide on how to photograph Rocky Mountain National Park. These two new additions are available at the Trail Ride Store and will be available for the photographers signing. Join Xanterra Parks & Resorts in welcoming Erik Stensland and begin your journey and your love of this glorious park that many of us call home and enjoy on a daily basis.

Club Members, Daniel White, WWØJD, Bill Howell, KDØZIW, Dave O’Farrell, WBØIXV at last year's Field Day.

Amateur Radio “Field Day” June 22 and 23 Demonstrates Science, Skill, and Service Members of the Estes Valley Amateur Radio Club will be participating in the national Amateur Radio Field Day exercise, June 22-23 at the Estes Valley Community Center, located at 660 Community Drive. Since 1933, ham radio operators across North America have established temporary ham radio stations in public locations during Field Day to showcase the science and skill of Amateur Radio. This event is open to the public and all are encouraged to attend. For more than 100 years, Amateur Radio-also called ham radio-has allowed people from all walks of life to experiment with electronics and communications techniques, as well as provide a free public service to their communities during a disaster or emergency, all without needing a cell phone or the Internet. Field Day demonstrates ham radio’s ability to work reliably under any conditions from almost any location and create an independent communications network. More than 35,000 people from thousands of locations participated last year in Field Day in 2018 activities. “It’s easy for anyone to pick up a computer or smartphone, connect to the Internet and communicate, with no knowledge of how the devices function or connect to each other,” said David Isgur, communications manager for the American Radio Relay League, the national association for Amateur Radio. “But if

there’s an interruption of service or you’re out of range of a cell tower, you have no way to communicate. Ham radio functions completely independent of the Internet or cell phone infrastructure, can interface with tablets or smartphones, and can be set up almost anywhere in minutes. That’s the beauty of Amateur Radio during a communications outage.” “Hams can literally throw a wire in a tree for an antenna, connect it to a batterypowered transmitter and communicate halfway around the world, ” Isgur added. “Hams do this by using a layer of Earth’s atmosphere as a sort of mirror for radio waves. In today’s electronic do-it-yourself (DIY) environment, ham radio remains one of the best ways for people to learn about electronics, physics, meteorology, and numerous other scientific disciplines, and is a huge asset to any community during disasters or emergencies if the standard communication infrastructure goes down.” Anyone may become a licensed Amateur Radio operator. There are more than 725,000 licensed hams in the United States, as young as nine and as old as 100. And with clubs such as The Estes Valley Amateur Radio Club, it’s easy for anybody to get involved right here in Estes Park. For more information about Field Day or Amateur Radio, visit

In the past, after logging a lot of miles on the trail, I would go to bed and feel an ache in my right big toe knuckle. It wasn’t debilitating and the next morning the discomfort would be gone. As time went on the pain became more obnoxious. It got so that sometimes I couldn’t sleep on my back (with the sheet pressing down on my toes pointing up) and now, several years after the first hint of ped pain, my right big toe knuckle hollers at me often. “What did I do to deserve this? ” I ask, looking down at that went-to-market piggy grinning back at me. “I know, I know, ” I say. “High heels, pointed toe boxes, flat flimsy sandals with no arch support, hiking thousands of miles…I did it to myself. ” There’s nothing anybody can do about my big tootsie so I haven’t been to a doctor about it. I stopped wearing heels, I got custom-made orthotics and I no longer wear nonessential sandals. Still, I have a joint that reminds me it’s there, way too often. My foot isn’t deformed, my toes aren’t bent at an odd angle, it’s just one oversized big toe knuckle that gives me grief. Recently I did what most people do when they have a malady these days: I looked it up on the Internet. You know what I found out? I have gout! Gout! The sky is falling, I have gout! King Henry VIII. Benjamin Franklin. Sir Isaac Newton. Me. All with gout. The give-away is that gout most commonly occurs in the joint at the base of the big toe. The machine called the human body has 203 joints but gout strikes the big toe joint. Not all joints. Not all digit hinges. Just the big toe knuckle. How bizarre is that! No doubt, it’s gout. That’s like if you’re taking a heart disease medication and the only food that is dangerous to your health is grapefruit! Not oranges or tomatoes or any other of the plethora of food found in your local grocery aisles. Just grapefruit. A single grapefruit can do you in because it stops your body from metabolizing heart medications. So then the drugs build up in your system and next thing you know,

you’ve overdosed. That’s grapefruit for you. Pink more than white. There are thousands of plant foods but one and only one that you can’t eat if you’re on heart meds: grapefruit. It’s just plain wacky. One last thing: there’s this rare disease called fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva that makes a person’s joints become permanently frozen in place. Its nickname is Stone Man Syndrome and until 25 years ago there had been no cure. But behold, in 1993 scientists discovered squalamine—an extract from the dogfish shark—with steroidal properties that may help in fighting FOP. Dogfish sharks! I never knew there was such a creature as a dogfish shark (until I discovered that the Chinese eat it in shark fin soup). Now they’re claiming that this very particular species might aid in relieving symptoms of a very rare disease. How did someone ever put an extract of squalus acanthias with the rare disease fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva? Amazing. Perhaps, if I wait long enough, someone will discover an extract from a rare species of turtle that will cure my bothersome right big toe knuckle. After all, gout is the disease of kings caused by the overindulgence in food and wine, right? It is rheumatism of the rich. Everyone knows it inflicts only the upper classes. As I am neither royal, overindulgent, nor rich, it could be that maybe—just maybe—I have a mild case of the common bunion and not gout at all. (Clarification: “While it is true that diet is related to gout, the notion that only the rich get gout is not. Gout, in fact, strikes many people of all social and financial backgrounds. Currently more than one million people, almost all of them male, have gout. ” –Forbes magazine, April, 2003.) You may let The Thunker know what you think at her e-mail address, © 2019 Sarah Donohoe

Guess Who’s Visiting Estes Park In July? Waldo Of Course!

Art Center Gallery Manager Retirement Party The Art Center of Estes Park is sadly saying goodbye to Vickie Mastron who has served the organization as Gallery Manager for the past nine years. Vickie’s outgoing and sunny personality will be greatly missed. The public is invited to a going away party for Vickie on Sunday, June 30 between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. at the Art Center, 517 Big Thompson Avenue, in Mid-

dle Stanley Village. Light refreshments will be served. Vickie and her husband, Bill

Cody, are relocating to Crestone, CO to begin a new life together, and everyone at the Art Center wishes them the utmost happiness.

Lars Sage, well known to many in the community, will begin his employment as the new Gallery Manager at the Art Center on June 24. He recently served a three-year term on the Art Center Board of Directors and was the primary force in launching the Estes Valley Plein Air event, successfully hosted for the first time last year by the organization. Lars’ energy, good humor and genuine love of people will be perfect qualities to help the Art Center move forward. Please plan to attend the going away party for Vickie at the Art Center as we all wish her well on their new venture.

Paula Martin, president of the Village Thrift Shop board of directors said “We would like to thank all of our generous donors, the many customers who shop at our shop, and our very generous landlord (Susan Signs, of Estes Park Rent All).

MOST OF ALL, WE THANK OUR WONDERFUL VOLUNTEERS, WHO DO SO VERY MUCH WORK TO ALLOW US TO EXIST”. The shop is run entirely by volunteers. There is no paid staff!

Estes Park Health Is Now A Medication Take-Back Location Get rid of the medication you’re no longer using Do you keep your medications securely locked, or in an unsecured cupboard in your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom? In a recent presentation to the Rural Estes Alliance for Community Health (REACH) group, Greg Fabisiak from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment shared that your medicine cabinet can be the least supervised area in your home and a temptation to visitors searching for access to drugs. Fabisiak shared that teenagers believe prescription drugs are easier to get than beer, that prescription drugs are safer to use because they’ve been prescribed by a physician and many who abuse opioids say they obtained free drugs from a friend or relative. Many of the drugs that are being obtained for illegal use are unused patient medications – 50% of unused drugs have been in the home for one to five years and 25% from one to twelve months. There are many reasons drugs go unused: • Ineffective • Undesirable side effects • Change in treatment • Symptoms Improve • Patient death • Over-prescribing • Over-packaging One way you can be part of the opioid abuse solution is to monitor your drugs and dispose of them properly when you are no longer using a prescription. Matt Makelky, Pharmacist at Estes Park Health, worked with the State of Colorado to allow Estes Park Health to become a Medication Take-Back Station. The station is located on the first floor in the Physician Clinic and allows anyone to bring in unused medications and properly dispose of them Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 12 noon. The following items are accepted in

the Medication Take-Back Station: • Prescription medications, including prescribed controlled substances (DEA Schedule II-V) • Over-the-counter medications • Liquid medications (small amounts in original, non-leaking containers) • Medication patches (Used Fentanyl and Duragesic patches are extremely hazardous. They may be folded in half, sticky side together and flushed down the toilet.) • Medication samples • Medicated ointments • Vitamins • Pet medications • Unused drug injection cartridges – unused EpiPens and insulin pens. (Must be unused with needle still protected inside.) • Unused inhaler canisters – Advair, Spiriva, ProAir, Ventolin. (Must be unused, empty canisters or unneeded plastic holders/mouth pieces.) These items CANNOT be accepted in the Take-Back Station: • Marijuana • Illicit drugs (DEA Schedule I drugs like heroin, LSD, etc.) • Needles, syringes and other sharps. Sharps must be taken to the Emergency Department. • Chemotherapy drugs • Medical tools and supplies • Bloody or infectious waste • Personal care products • Thermometers • Empty containers • Medication waste generated by health care facilities, including nursing homes Please go to for additional information about this new service at Estes Park Health. You can also call 970-586-2200 for additional information.

Live The Ultimate Resort Lifestyle At Mountain Village At Lake Estes By: Kelli Williams

Now introducing a new upscale residential-resort community in Estes Park, Colorado – Mountain Village at Lake Estes, listed by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty broker Chris Angelovic. This community is exceptional, highlighting the surrounding lake and granting stunning views of the mountains. A thoughtfully designed subdivision, Mountain Village at Lake Estes starts at an unbeatable $657,500 for single family cabins. With only 32 single family cabins in the community, interested buyers or investors should act quickly to reserve their space in Mountain Village at Lake Estes. Investors will find this an ideal opportunity by having the ability to utilize the already in place state-of-the-art rental program offered, due to a partnership with the adjacent Estes Park Resort. All homes are zoned (A1) for use-by-right short-term rentals (1-29 days). Plus, the Home Owners Association will take care of all exterior common area maintenance/utilities, management, snow removal, and trash. “For those that take part in the rental program, our management company has been in the rental business for over 20 years and understands the intricacies that go into managing short-term rentals, including managing rates based on supply and demand on a daily basis

and surveying the local competitive set to optimize our owner's returns,” said Kevin A. Bierl, president and chief executive officer of the developers for this project, Pacific West Hotels & Resorts. Pacific West Hotels & Resorts is also the owner and operator of Estes Park Resort, a full-service hotel with a bar,

As a huge bonus, directly next door to Mountain Village is the Lake Estes Marina, which offers many water sport activities and watercraft rentals, plus you are within walking distance to restaurants, a golf course, an amusement park, horseback riding, fishing, and hiking and biking trails. As the ultimate perk,

restaurant, banquet facility, and newly built wedding/events pavilion located on Lake Estes. As a homeowner, you are able to enjoy the hotel amenities such as an indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna, exercise facility, spa services, and of course the convenience of a bar/restaurant so close by. Estes Park Resort is the only hotel/lodge located on the lake and the new Mountain Village development will be the only resort-lifestyle, single family home development on the lake.

the development also fronts a hard-surface, 3.8-mile trail that surrounds the entire lake and welcomes a 15-minute walk to downtown Estes Park. Each of the 32 residential upscale cabins is approximately 1,577 square feet and feature two master bedrooms, twoand-a-half bathrooms, and a loft space. All homes are completed with vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling Pella windows to capture the lake and mountain views, custom Bertch kitchen cabinets, custom

live edge walnut kitchen counters, stainless steel appliances, forced air heating and cooling, natural engineered wood floors throughout, interior log accent ceiling beams, and a log staircase. Enjoying the beautiful outdoors will also be a treat on the exterior patio off the master bedroom as well as on the large covered exterior deck off of the living and dining area. The exterior deck includes a stone gas fireplace, a jacuzzi, and a gas connection for the BBQ grill. “There's really nothing like these cabins anywhere in Estes Park and especially on Lake Estes. Rocky Mountain National Park attracts so many visitors from all around the world and they now have the perfect resort-lifestyle community to relax in after a long day of activities. Each cabin comes equipped with a seven-person jacuzzi to ensure the owners and/or guests remain relaxed during their stay,” added Angelovic. Phase 1 will include eight cabins, that are all currently under construction. Prices on these first-phase lots will range from $657,500 to $720,000. A beautiful entry and an open-air log structure grand pavilion are also under construction, to enhance the already beautiful community. This is a wonderful opportunity to live the Estes Park lifestyle and to take part in a truly exceptional investment opportunity. This Friday, June 21st, Mountain Village at Lake Estes in conjunction with the Estes Valley Partners for Commerce will be holding a ribbon cutting event from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Stop by to view the project and enjoy light appetizers, beer and wine. Or, you can stop by the official grand opening, which is the following day, Saturday, June 22nd, from noon to 4:00 p.m. The grand opening will include grilling at the pavilion, and refreshments provided by a local distillery and local breweries. Last but not least, there is an open house on Sunday, June 23rd, from noon to 4:00 p.m. Stop by any of these events to experience the Mountain Village at Lake Estes for yourself!

Rumford Returns To Rooftop Knee injury hasn’t slowed down the clown, one of the funniest men in rodeo Deep down, Justin Rumford is a cowboy, and he’s not about to let a knee injury slow him down much – even if it was a severe knee injury. In fact, he will return to this year’s Rooftop Rodeo, set for 7 p.m. Monday, July 8-Saturday, July 13, at Granny May Arena inside the Estes Park Fairgrounds. But that’s what being a clown is all about for Rumford. “We’re bringing Justin back because he’s the fans’ favorite every time he’s here,” said Mark Purdy, chairman of Estes Park

Western Heritage Inc., a group of volunteers that works with the town of Estes Park to produce the annual rodeo. “He’s funny, engaging and makes our rodeo better just because he’s here.” Rumford was injured in January at the National Western Stock Show in Denver. He worked the next week in Rapid City, South Dakota, then found out just how bad the injury was. He suffered three ligament tears – ACL, MCL and PCL – a broken tibia and a double meniscus tear, so he had surgery Feb. 7.

He returned to the arena six months after, and he hasn’t looked back since. “I’ve been doing all the therapy and the rehab, and by Aug. 1, I should be about 90 percent,” said Rumford, the six-time Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association’s Clown of the Year. “I can still do everything I normally do except for some of the acts or work the barrel. For the most part, I can do about 95 percent of everything I did before.” That’s a good thing for rodeo fans in Estes Park. As he continues to heal, he continues to be the vibrant personality that has been his gift all his life. Raised in southcentral Kansas to a rodeo family, Rumford has been around the game since the day he was born. He is a third-generation stock contractor. Rodeo is in his blood. He’s roped and bulldogged; he’s ridden broncs and fought bulls; he’s even driven the semi-tractor trailers that haul prized steeds. Now he’s living a dream. “This clowning deal is the best thing I’ve ever had,” said Rumford, who lives Ponca City, Oklahoma, with his wife, Ashley, and their triplets, Livi, Lola and

Bandy. “It’s something in rodeo that I can have a lot of longevity in. There’s not just a ton of risk, and it’s something I enjoy so much.” Now he’s the preeminent funnyman in professional rodeo, just as his awards describe. He’s a comedian by nature, something he shared through every level of rodeo on which he’s performed. Whether he’s entertaining a crowd or sharing stories after the performances end, he is the life of the party.

“People want to laugh at each other more than they want to laugh at something,” Rumford said. “When I’m in the arena, I’m saying the same stuff I’d say if I wasn’t clowning. “It’s just me being me.” That’s why people in Estes Park like having him around, and the feeling is re-

ciprocated. “That’s just a beautiful location,” he said. “It’s a great committee with awesome hospitality; it’s an awesome town, and it’s got a park right across the arena for the kids. Estes Park is just a fun place to be.” That’s one of the reasons contestants have considered Rooftop Rodeo one of the very best in the country, but there are other reasons. The volunteers on the committee come together every year to not only put on a great community event but to also cater to the athletes who make rodeo so great. “I think a big part of why people like coming to Estes Park is the way the contestants are treated,” Rumford said. “There are free stalls, and in the hospitality building, they’ve got a huge corner for kids that has a bunch of toys. “The money’s great for the contestants, and everybody on the committee treats you like family. They have a ton of 50amp RV hookups for contestants, and after a busy Fourth of July, it’s nice to pull in somewhere like Estes Park and just plug into one of those outlets and just relax.” That down time is critical for the cowboys and cowgirls who make their living traveling hundreds of miles in a given day just to compete. It also allows them to perform at an optimum level when the time comes.

Westernaires Present A Wild West Show Like You've Never Seen!

This Friday & Saturday, June 21st & 22nd at 7:00 p.m., Estes Park Event Center, Rooftop Rodeo Arena Spend the evening with the talented youth of Colorado’s own Westernaires riding organization as they present a Wild West show extravaganza like you’ve never seen. Every year, the entire performance division of Westernaires descends upon Estes Park to impress audiences with their: colorful and precise drill riding, world-class trick riding, true-to-history Cavalry act, daring charioteers, and so much more! It’s hard to believe that these regular “city kids” are so accomplished. Founded in 1949, Westernaires has been training kids aged 9 to 19 in the ways of the old West. Some of their focus includes self-respect, responsibility, and leadership, all while working in a familyfriendly, equine environment.

With their flashy costumes, snappy music, and daring execution of skill, you too will see why the Westernaires have been called the “best precision mounted drill team at speed, anywhere in the world.” These shows sell out quickly, so be sure to arrive early. Performances begin at 7 p.m. this Friday and Saturday evenings, June 21st and 22nd, 2019 at the Estes Park Fairgrounds, Rooftop Rodeo arena. General admission is $10 and box seats are $15. Spectators under three years of age are admitted free. For more information, or to purchase tickets in advance, contact Estes Park Special Events at 970-586-6104 or visit the Westernaires website at 2019/6/21/estes-park-shows-2019

Help Boy Scout Reduce Emergency Response Time And Add Vehicle Bay To Glen Haven Fire House #2

My name is Matthew Argo. For my Eagle Scout Project, I will be adding an extension to the Glen Haven Area Volunteer Fire House #2, which will minimize response time in case of a fire and/or medical emergency. A vehicle that will fight wildfire and structure fires will be housed in this new addition and will greatly reduce the amount of time for firefighters to respond to a call. It is necessary to house vehicles so that the water tanks used to fight fires do not freeze, and vehicles are constantly charged for use at any time. Why did I decide to do my project in Glen Haven? My great, great, great grandfather W. S. Rudolph was one of the original members and promoters of the Glen Haven Association. His cabin still stands and is still owned by the family. Also, my grandparents purchased land in Glen Haven and in 2006 built the house they presently live in.

I feel that since the Glen Haven Area Volunteer Fire Department (GHAVFD) is a volunteer fire department and all their money comes from fundraising and grants, that I can make a difference in this community by giving back to an area that I feel is special. I want others, as well as future generations, to enjoy what makes Glen Haven what it is. The community of Glen Haven is neither a municipality nor a taxing district, and the GHAVFD is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit Colorado corporation. The cost of this project will run between $16,000 and $20,000, and will be funded completely through donations and fundraising events. Please consider making a donation, to help me build this extension, to GHAVFD, P.O. Box 53, Glen Haven, CO 80532 and put in the memo line “Eagle Scout Project.”

Plant Identification Class June 25

Outdoor educator, Michael Beckstrom, will be offering a general plant identification class at the greenhouse on Tuesday, June 25th at 2 p.m. This class will focus on aspects of healing and ways to approach overall health through plants. Age recommendations are 10 years and up. This is the third class for the summer nature series as part of the Young Artists and Scholars overall mission to

empower our youth and hone their leadership skills. Michael’s goal is to bring all people closer to the earth. He hopes to see you all there. The class is being offered free through the Young Artists and Scholars Group which is located at the Cave Cat Gardens Greenhouse in Lower Stanley Village just behind Starbucks. For more information call 970-586-8707.

Have just returned from New Orleans where Marie and I attended the wedding of my great nephew, my deceased brother’s grandchild. It was a lovely affair. The rehearsal party was at Antoine’s. Antoine’s is the oldest continuous family owned restaurant in the United States, started in 1840. I could not even begin to describe the menu, from oysters to baked Alaska with trout covered with lump crabmeat and Chateaubriand in between. Oh, don’t forget the salad and gumbo as well as the lemon sorbet! That was just the rehearsal dinner with 80 people. The wedding was at the Royal Orleans where we started eating and drinking all over again with over 200 people. Of course, both events had all and every type of beverage starting with champagne and ending with cocktails of every description. The bride and groom finally left with all of us second lining them out of the ballroom. That I gained 10 pounds and am now counting calories is almost an understatement. Besides all of that celebrating, Marie and I drove to Larose, LA to see my 97year-old sister, and across the lake for fun and of course spent some time in Harrah’s Casino. We also managed to visit my families’ graves as well as our former home. Boy, were we busy for just four days. Now, back to reality. There is no way or reason to try and give y’all any recipe for any of the dishes I ate in New Orleans. Most of them always included some sort of fresh seafood. That is what I truly miss…New Orleans style cooking. So, to repeat myself, back to reality!

Here in Estes it is the time for outdoor entertaining in a more relaxed style. No long dresses or formal attire... just shorts or slacks should be the dress of the day…that is if it ever stops raining and warms up. I love to make to make cheese dip and serve it with chips or French fries. I often do not have any Velveeta in the house, but do have cheddar. I use cheddar in so many ways. Here is an easy and short way to make a cheese dip that you may even use on hot dogs. For a queso variation, add one 10 oz. can of Rotel diced tomatoes, add green chilies, drained and squeezed dry and hot sauce (optional) to taste.

Easy Way Cheese Sauce Makes two cups 8 ounces grated, yellow sharp cheddar, 2 packed cups (you could make a white cheese sauce with white cheddar) 1 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. cornstarch 1 cup evaporated canned milk Toss cheese and cornstarch in medium microwave-safe bowl. Pour milk over and microwave 1 minute. Stir or whisk and cook in 30 seconds increments, whisking in between until smooth and melted. (about 2 minutes in all.) If using Rotel, once cheese melted add it and cook 30 seconds and stir. You can also cook on range in saucepan over simmering water. My email: Bon Appétit.

Nick Mollé Releases “Nature of the Beasts” Emmy nominated Nick Mollé Films has announced the release of their latest documentary, “Nature of the Beasts.” The film explores the sustainability efforts and difficulties for the future of Rocky Mountain National Park. With special attention to the perilous future facing the very popular pika along with many other species in the park, “Beasts,” follows the fascinating premise that as Nick says, “…is the place where art and science confess their secret identity as twins.” Featuring interviews with several PhD scientists and expert park personnel, the story contends that education is what will save our parks. Whether it be the changes in climate or underfunded management of exponentially increasing visitor numbers, Rocky needs our attention. Although following critically serious subject matter, the film joins Nick and

his camera as he explores the habitats of the wildlife. Beautifully filmed landscapes by co-producer Sean Doherty enhance the experience and the educational impact of this important tour through Rocky and neighboring Estes Park. The TV edition of this film will be released to over 300 PBS stations beginning in August of this year. The film premiers on Saturday, June 22nd at The Historic Park Theatre in downtown Estes Park. Doors open for the pre-show party with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar at 7:30 p.m. preceding the movie at 8:00. There will be a question and answer period after the show with the experts who appeared in the film. Contact The Historic Park Theatre for tickets and information.

We have heard it often said: “What goes around comes around!” Its truth has been witnessed it in many situations in our society. Sadly, some do not consider its wisdom as applying to them and their activities. Lawbreakers often think that they can act viciously and will be the one who escapes the ‘comes around’ result of their actions. Recall the picture of a recent school shooter sitting dejectedly at the courtroom table after taking the life of a ‘hero’. Recall the child abuser who loses everything, Think of the reckless driver who dies in the crash. The list goes on. This is just the way it is…and as it should be! Jesus said: “Whatsoever a man sows he will reap!” However, many a person who runs roughshod over another says: “No, not me!” until he realizes that, often in this life, and certainly in the next: “What goes around comes around!” In the Bible book of Esther is a graphic story of one person who learned firsthand that ‘what goes around comes around’. His name was Haman, a man who had achieved a level of prominence in King Xerxes kingdom. In his arrogance he expected everyone to bow down to him and obey his wishes. Mordecai, one of God’s people and cousin to Esther the Queen, refused. Haman vowed to destroy Mordecai and all Jews and deceived the king into issuing a law to that effect. As he ‘strutted’ out, very cockily, thinking about what was soon to happen, he saw Mordecai again and, feeling a renewed rage, he decided to build a seventy-five foot tall gallows just for Mordecai. Unknown to Haman, sometime previously, a plot to assassinate King Xerxes had been uncovered by Mordecai. He foiled the plot, thus, saving the King’s life. The report of Mordecai’s heroic deed was filed in the King’s records and tucked away. As Haman’s plot to have Mordecai hanged moved toward completion, King Xerxes had a sleepless night. He decided to review the records of recent events in his Kingdom. Coming upon the report of the foiled assassination, he asked what had been done to reward ‘hero’ Mordecai. Learning that nothing had been done to reward him, he asked Haman, who walked in about then: “What should be done for someone the King wants to honor?” Haman, arrogantly thinking ‘he’ was the ‘honoree’, recommended that the ‘hero’ be dressed in one of the King’s royal garments, placed on the King’s horse and then led by a dignitary through the city streets, crying, “This is what the King does for those he wishes to honor!” The King said: “Haman, you do this to Mordecai the Jew immediately!” Things go downhill very quickly from there for Haman and he ends up hanged on the seventy-five foot gallows he had prepared for Mordecai. “What goes around comes around!” “Whatever a man sows, he reaps.” This historical event should be weighed in Estes Park right now. Many of us have been dismayed by the efforts of a few people who want their wishes honored by the majority of the citizens. They said, in essence, “I know that we had a fair election and those who won the approval of the majority were put in office. I know that they have served our community well in those and other capacities. But we don’t like it. We want to be in the places of honor and those people removed. So, let’s do an expensive vote all over again and make that happen.” So how does this relate to the story above? I believe…as many do…that this unrest has been started and perpetuated by a few…much less qualified and devoted…who visualize themselves in any vacated positions. But, you know what? “Whatever goes around comes around!” “Whatsoever a man sows, he reaps!” Thousands of civic-minded citizens will be carefully perusing names appearing on any ballot of these who show arrogance and disregard of other Estes Park citizens by costing our city extra expense while distracting our civic leaders from doing their work, just to please their egos. They will find that all of us have long memories. I believe that “What goes around, comes around!” and “Whatsoever a man sows he will reap!” will be seen by all.

He is an avid fan, memorabilia collector and is an expert on the Elvis Presley story. The five Elvis suits that he currently wears are authentic $3,000-$4,000 recreations of Elvis' most famous suits, including the Aloha Eagle Jumpsuit worn in the Aloha From Hawaii TV concert! These suits are created by some of the same people who created Elvis’ original suits and are actually licensed by Elvis’ estate. A highlight of his full show is “Instant Elvis,” where an audience member gets dressed as Elvis and they sing a duet together! Aaron always mixes a little humor and Elvis trivia into every hip-shaking show. Aaron is often asked if he is lip-syncing, but it really is him singing. He has even performed for two people who knew the real Elvis and both gave him high marks! Aaron has always been an Elvis fan. As a child, he saw Elvis perform live six times.

Monday Artisan MarketMeet Michale Duncan

Come meet the artists and hear their stories, view awesome artwork and have fun at Riverside Plaza in downtown Estes Park. The Monday Artisans Market is located at Riverside Plaza, formerly known as George Hix Riverside Plaza, downtown, 10:00 - 5:00, every Monday throughout the summer months, June, July and August. This week's featured artisan for the Monday Artisans Market at Riverside Plaza is Michale Duncan. Michale, a local Estes Park artist, creates beautiful and unique Celtic jewelry. He has 20 years experience crafting fine art jewelry, and is self-taught. His passion for the process, working in recycled silver, gold, and bronze, along with a variety of gemstones creates incredible, one of a kind jewelry. Michale's Celtic heritage is his main inspiration for his artistic creations. He has been creating Celtic jewelry for more than 23 years. It is his all encompassing passion. He spends much time researching Celtic myths and heritage and incorporates these into his work. All of Michale's designs are beautiful and original. He does all of his own pattern work, mold making, casting, chain, and lapidary. He strives to produce 100% handmade wearable jewelry. The process itself is a vessel for rudimentary ideas, dreamed and then fully conceived. Recurring design themes are nature and animals, which are his passion. Michale does lost wax casting as do most Celtic jewelry artists. He tries to keep each and every piece unique by doing the stone cutting, and cutting unique shapes which helps with things like ergonomics so the pieces, are very comfortable to wear. Michale has been exploring using multiple metals, combining bronze, sterling silver, fine silver and 23-karat gold to produce a series he calls “artifacts.” These pieces use the ancient Korean art of Kum-boo, which ruses pure gold onto silver. It gives the impression that the piece spent time “lost or buried.”

Quaker/Unitarian Group Meeting The Quaker/ Unitarian group meets each Sunday morning at the US Bank meeting room (363 East Elkhorn Ave). Quaker silence is from 10-10:30. Social time is from 10:30-11. Presentation and discussion is from 11-noon. This week, the discussion will be led by Dr. Steve Andersen. His topic will deal with E.O. Wilson's Pulitzer Prize winning book, Half Earth: Our Planet’s Fight For Life. All are welcome. Please join us. If questions, please call Randy Maharry 515229-8299.

Michale creates rings, broaches, pendants, necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Many of his pieces contain a secret element — a charm that faces the wearer, to "empower" the owner of the jewelry. The Monday Artisans Market offers a unique opportunity to enjoy and support local artisans. We are all about local art, local artisans, and our unique stories about our art, that makes each and every one of us unique. The Monday Artisans Market connects Estes Park residents, businesses, tourists and the arts within our community. Celebrate our local artists. Stop by, say hi, meet the artisans, see their labor of love, and hear their story.

The Baldpate Inn Presents Its 2019 Summer Enchanted Evenings

On Wednesday, June 26, 2019, at 7 p.m., The Baldpate Inn is pleased to welcome Colton Morton our very own Key Room Curator. Colton will be speaking about the Baldpate Inn Key Room and some stories behind the keys. Colton Morton is a recent graduate in History & Anthropology from Colorado State University in Fort Collins. His interest in these subjects arose due to an interest in humans and their cultures past & present. From an early age he was delving into lore and mythologies of the world before turning to their more mundane, but no fewer interesting counterparts as he grew older. These interests were compounded by his time in the Boy Scouts of America where he got his first taste of teaching others on the sub-

jects of American history & archaeology. All of this has led to his current occupation as the Key Room Curator Inter of the Baldpate Inn, and hopefully a fruitful career in museum exhibit work going forward. The Summer Enchanted Evenings at the Baldpate Inn, on Highway 7, are held every Wednesday throughout the summer beginning at 7 p.m. There is no charge, and refreshments are provided in the Key Room. The Baldpate Inn would love for you to be able to join them for the talk. If you would like to enjoy a soup and salad buffet for dinner before the presentation, you can call and make reservations at 970-586-KEYS (5397) or call for any other questions about the presentation.

Hear Tales Of Rocky Mountain National Park’s Early Innkeepers Storyteller Kurtis Kelly will lead an evening of campfire stories drawn from the adventurous history of our area’s early tourism. “’Welcome, Weary Traveler’: Innkeepers of Rocky Mountain National Park History” will take place on Thursday, June 27 at 7:30 p.m. The one-hour program will be held at the Moraine Park Discovery Center Amphitheater, and the event is sponsored by Rocky Mountain Conservancy. Registration is $15 per person, and free for children 12 and under. Advance registration may be done at One hundred years ago, ranchers and homesteaders rapidly built lodges and cabins for visitors who were flocking to discover Rocky’s scenic beauty. From Abner Sprague, who transformed the land with a human-made fishing pond that still bears his name, to Enos Mills, who insisted that guests not pick flowers or play cards while in the cradle of na-

ture, each of these innkeepers and their families created lifelong memories for their guests. Meet these characters through first-person living history performances. Other figures covered will be Joe Mills of the Crags Hotel, Charles Edwin Hewes of the Hewes-Kirkwood Inn, “Squeaky Bob” Wheeler of the Milner Pass area, and the famous F. O. Stanley. Kurtis Kelly is a local performer well-known for his many re-enactments of local and regional legends. The campfirelegends series will conclude on Thursday, July 6, when Kelly performs a medley of stories titled “Rocky Mountain Tales of Survival.” Registration for that program is also available at Weather permitting, a campfire with marshmallows will be available after the presentation. Attendees should plan to bring jackets or rain gear to prepare for changing outdoor conditions.

July 4th Fun and Festivities at Museum Friends’ Coolest Car Show The annual Coolest Car Show in Colorado is a local Independence Day tradition, designed as a festival for the whole family to enjoy.

Public Open House/Lecture “Our Energy Resources 101: Colorado’s Energy Options” The Estes Valley Astronomical Society (EVAS) in conjunction with The Estes Park Memorial Observatory is offering a free public open house/lecture on Saturday, June 22, 7 p.m. The goal of EVAS is to promote amateur astronomy and education in the Estes valley Have you wondered how burning fossil fuels or soaking up sunshine can make electricity? Do wind turbines kill birds, heat the Earth, and cause cancer? Why don’t we have more nuclear or geothermal energy generation in Colorado? Our society relies heavily on energy resources for electricity, heating, and transportation. Possibilities for satisfying our needs include coal, gas, nuclear, solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal, hydrogen, and biomass. We will discuss energy options, examining how each works along with its availability, reliability, economics, and environmental considerations. What are

our most realistic and advantageous prospects for the future, and what is the direction Colorado appears to be taking? At the end of the talk, we will consider an additional important energy resource, one that is superior to all of the above in terms of cost and sustainability. Can you guess what it is? This illustrated presentation is intended for a general audience. Our speaker is Dr. Gordon MacAlpine a retired astronomer, physicist and a member of the Estes Valley Astronomical Society (EVAS) club. He received a BA in physics from Earlham College and a Ph. D. in astronomy from the University of Wisconsin. After a stint at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, he joined the faculty at the University of Michigan where he was a Professor of Astronomy until 2000. Then he accepted the Zilker Distinguished Professor of Physics chair at Trinity University in San Antonio, TX, where he continued teaching astronomy,

Watercolor Brushstrokes Class On June 27 & 28 The Rocky Mountain Conservancy is excited to host a two-day class on Watercolor Brushstrokes taught by award-winning watercolor artist, Karen Ramsay. The class will take place on June 27th and June 28th at the RMC Field Institute Building (1895 Fall River Road) and will teach you the tools you need to capture the skies, mountains, water, and trees of Rocky Mountain National Park with stunning technique. The first halfday of the course will take place in the classroom before the class ventures into the park to explore their on-site creativity for the remainder of the course. Participants should anticipate bringing a sack lunch, a lightweight foldable chair or stool, comfortable walking shoes, and their art supplies with them for both days of the course. Some short-distance walks on mostly level terrain will occur throughout the duration of the course. Please contact the RMC Field Institute for a complete list of suggested supplies. Please note that basic drawing and watercolor skills are required prior to signing up for this class.

As a graduate of the Colorado Institute of Art in Denver, Karen Ramsay brings years of experience training under accomplished artists including Charles Reid, Burton Silverman, Frank Webb, and many more. Since growing up as a young artist in Lakewood, Colorado, Karen has continued her lifelong passions for painting and drawing and has had her work featured in the Big Sky Journal as an “Artist of the West” along with several other Colorado-based art accolades. Today, you can find her busy teaching watercolor classes to students and enjoying the art of plein air painting in locations ranging from Rocky Mountain National Park to Grand Teton National Park to her own backyard. To register or learn more about Watercolor Brushstrokes or other classes offered by the Field Institute, give the Rocky Mountain Conservancy Field Institute a call at (970) 586-3262 or visit our website at

Celebrating A Space Milestone Through Programs and Reading This summer, we look to the skies. And as we do, we’re joined by special guests with spaceflight expertise. Thanks to you, we’re making exciting progress on a lunar-sized community goal: 238,900 total reading minutes logged by all ages. We’re currently 78,902 minutes to our way there. Readers of all ages are earning fun prizes for their efforts. It’s T-minus 29 days until the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing. On July 20, 1969, some 600,000 million people were awestruck as they watched history in the making, mostly on their 18-inch black-and-white TVs. This anniversary inspired our spacethemed Summer Reading Program, “A Universe of Stories.” We don’t have to wait until July 20 to celebrate. You’re invited to a season of programs with local and regional experts who have a “Universe of Stories” to share. To start things off, we welcome former NASA astronaut Loren Shriver for “Making Space Shuttle History: an Astronaut’s Story” on Monday, June 24 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The presentation takes place at American Legion Post 119. Register at and we’ll save you a seat. Shriver will share his firsthand experiences aboard the space shuttle mission to launch the legendary Hubble Space Telescope. The program features a 20minute video of rare footage taken on that mission. Kids have a fascination for space too— making this theme a great incentive for summertime reading. We’ve invited

Loren to give a program for kids entering grades 1 through 6. “Meet a Real Astronaut!” takes place at the Library on Wednesday, June 26 from 2 to 3 p.m. Registration at For adults—and ages 10 and up—our next stop will be at the Estes Park Memorial Observatory for a night of skywatching, outer-space movies, and viewing through the 16” RC dome telescope. Register for our next “Stargazing at the Observatory” on Monday, July 8 from 8 to 10 p.m. The Observatory will then be the site for a program with aerospace engineer Mike Grusin titled “Uncovering a Mystery at the Edge of the Solar System” on Thursday, July 18 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. NASA scientists have found the shadow of a strange object beyond Pluto. What could it be? Grusin will offer insights and explain how the New Horizons spacecraft flew past this object last January. Then we’ll welcome the Boulder-based STEMpunk group to town for a presentation titled “Fly Me to the Moon: NASA’s Golden Age and the Apollo 11 Moon Landing” on Wednesday, July 31 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Observatory. We thank the Library Friends & Foundation for making the Summer Reading Program possible. Thanks also to our program partners: the American Legion, the Observatory, and Estes Park Aviation Internationale Club. Log your reading minutes at and register there for these exciting programs. Great books, like the stars above, are there to inspire us all summer long.

Making Space Shuttle History: an Astronaut’s Story Former NASA astronaut Loren Shriver will share his firsthand experiences on the space shuttle mission that set out to launch the legendary Hubble Space Telescope. Shriver’s 90minute program will take place at the American Legion Post 119 this Monday, June 24, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The program is hosted by the Estes Valley Library as part of its “Universe of Stories” Summer Reading Program. The program is free, and attendees should register in advance at to assure an available seat. As NASA’s website states, “Hubble’s launch and deployment in April 1990 marked the most significant advance in astronomy since Galileo’s telescope. ” That launch gave astronomers an extraordinary tool in space research. “Thanks to five servicing missions and more than 25 years of operation, ” says NASA, “our view of the universe and our place within it has never been the same.”

Shriver (Colonel, USAF, retired) formerly served as NASA’s Space Shuttle Program Manager for Launch Integration. In 1997, he became the Deputy Director of NASA’s Kennedy Space for Launch and Payload Processing. His accomplishments have earned him numerous awards, including the NASA Distinguished Service Medal and three times receiving the NASA Space Flight Medal. Monday’s program will also feature 20 minutes of video footage taken aboard the space shuttle. In addition to registering for Monday’s program, the public is encouraged to log their reading minutes at, as the Library encourages everyone to join in the community goal of 238,900 total reading minutes— which is the distance to the Moon in miles. Full details and upcoming programs are available on the library’s website.

Estes Valley Residents Turn Out In Force For Estes Recycles Day, June 8

Volunteers Wayne Newsom, Cathy Alper, Kathy Long and Vickie Henry get ready for the gates to open at Estes Recycles Day.

The Estes Valley is making recycling a priority. At Estes Recycles Day on June 8, cars, trucks and campers arrived laden with metal, paper for shredding, old paint, electronics and items to give away at Freecycle -- and then waited patiently for their turn to off-load those hard-torecycle materials, happy to know that items cleared out of garages, basements and attics would not end up in the landfill. Organized by the League of Women Voters & Community Recycling Committee of Estes Park and with broad participation from across the community, the event involved a huge number of dedicated organizations and volunteers. For the first time this year, we engaged Spring Back Colorado Mattress Recycling to join our efforts. A total of 65 mattresses were picked up from hotels and residences for a small fee, to be broken down into their component parts and recycled. Almost 100 percent of the materials from these mattresses will be recycled, with foam, cotton and felt repurposed into items such as carpet

padding, steel melted at a foundry and repurposed into new items, and wood sent to the chipper for landscape mulch. According to Alice Reuman, who along with Cathy Alper co-chaired the event for the League of Women Voters & Community Recycling Committee, “We had an amazing turn-out of both volunteers and people willing to take the time and effort to recycle their hard-torecycle items. The containers were stacked high with scrap metal, paint cans, shredding, and electronics. It’s great to know that all of these materials will be recycled rather than going to the landfill.” We owe a huge thank you to all of the participating individuals and organizations for their dedication and hard work and to all who participated by coming along to recycle. Finally, special thanks go to Pastor Michael Moore and his congregation, for so generously providing space for the event once again at the Presbyterian Community Church of the Rockies.

After raising five children, Rose completed her education in nursing, then used her wellearned degree at Columbia Orthopedics. As her husband Galen would say, the couple took "working vacations" in Estes Park, Colorado, where Rose at the Rocky Mountain Gateway Visitor Center at Rocky Mountain National Park. In addition to working, she enjoyed taking, printing, gathering and sharing photographs, camping, hiking, and, perhaps above all, Rose enjoyed every moment of time spent with her beloved husband. During retirement, Rose and her husband pursued their passion for travel by residing in Florida as well as in Colorado and returning to

their home in Montgomery City in between. Rose held the Catholic Church dear to her heart and participated alongside her husband in TEC retreats. Rose is survived by her five children, Timothy Bethel and his wife Sandy of Montgomery City, Bobbette Tucker and her husband Rick of Montgomery City, Beatrice Koenigsfeld and her husband Glen of Walford, Iowa, Noah Bethel and his wife Melissa of Tampa, Florida, and Thomas Bethel of Kansas City; 14 grandchildren, Carolyn (Cam) Boschenreither, Renee Bethel, Tyler (Stephanie) Haberstock, Erika (Tony) McCray, Cody (Jen) Tucker, Bridget (Derek) Otto, Marcy Koenigsfeld, Chloe, Sydney, Noah T. and Gracie Bethel, Ashley (Warren) Bodner, Dalas and Aden Bethel; 10 greatgrandchildren, Athena, Emma, Sereniti, Theo, Junior, Gabriel, Nathan, Luke, Oliver and Camden; two brothers, William (Judy) Cunningham of Montgomery City and Mike (Kathy) Cunningham of New Florence; five brothers-in-law, Joseph (Barb) Bethel of New Florence, Les (Stevie) Bethel of Aurora, Illinois, David (Janis) Bethel of Columbia, Charles (Lola) Bethel of Beckley, West Virginia, and Donnie (Lisa) Bethel of Montgomery City; and two sisters-in-law, Ellen (Gerald) Schindler of New Florence and Kathy (Neil) Mohrman of Jefferson City.

A reception for Rose and her husband, Galen will be held on Sunday, July 21 from 1-3 p.m. at Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church, 920 Big Thompson Ave. Estes Park. Coffee, tea and cookies will be served.

Galen Stuart Bethel (October 9, 1943 - December 2, 2017) Galen Stuart Bethel (Bean), 74, of Montgomery City, passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday, December 2, 2017 surrounded by his family. Galen was the type of husband you pray your daughter would find, and the kind of father you desire your children become, a brother whose closeness and protection was never of shortcoming, and a friend who has always had a helpful hand and a giving heart that was always at close reach. Galen was born on October 9, 1943, in New Florence, son to the late Richard and Lorraine (Rich) Bethel. Galen was a 1961 graduate of Montgomery County R-II High School in Montgomery City. On July 21, 1962, he was united in marriage to Rose Marie Cunningham at Immaculate Conception Church in Montgomery City. Galen began his work with Missouri State Parks at Grahams Cave. He expanded his career as supervisor of multiple State Parks including Lake of the Ozarks, Hawn State Park and Pershing State Park. Galen also pursued work as owner/operator of the New Florence Mill. In 1974 Galen was hired on with Teamsters as a car hauler, a career from which he would retire 26 years later but would remain co-owner of B &T Trucking with his son-in-law. As Galen would refer to it, his "working vacation" in Estes Park, Colorado presented yet another job opportunity for him to be a part of the Rocky Mountain Transit Management team for the past twelve years. In addition to working, he enjoyed fishing, camping, hiking the Rocky Mountain trails and golfing with his brothers. During retirement Galen and his wife pursued their passion for

travel by residing in Florida as well as in Colorado and returning to their home in Montgomery City in between. Galen took pride in being a part of the Catholic Church, was a member of the Knights of Columbus and participated alongside his wife in TEC retreats. In addition to his spouse of 55 years, Galen is survived by his five children, Timothy Bethel and his wife Sandy of Montgomery City, Bobbette Tucker and her husband Rick of Montgomery City, Beatrice Koenigsfeld and her husband Glen of Walford, Iowa, Noah Bethel and his wife Melissa of Tampa, Florida, and Thomas Bethel of Kansas City; fourteen grandchildren, Carolyn and Renee Bethel, Tyler (Stephanie) Haberstock, Erika (Tony) McCray, Cody (Jen) Tucker, Bridget (Derek) Otto, Marcy Koenigsfeld, Chloe, Sydney, Noah T and Gracie Bethel, Ashley (Warren ) Bodner, Dalas Bethel, Aden Bethel; five great-grandchildren, Sereniti, Theo, Nathan, Luke, and Oliver; five brothers, Joseph (Barb) Bethel of New Florence, Les (Stevie) Bethel of Aurora, IL, David (Janis) Bethel of Columbia, Charles (Lola) Bethel of Beckley, West Virginia, and Donnie (Lisa) Bethel of Montgomery City; two sisters, Ellen (Gerald) Schindler of New Florence and Kathy (Neil) Mohrman of Jefferson City; and two brothers-in-law, William (Judy) Cunningham of Montgomery City and Mike (Kathy) Cunningham of New Florence. Galen was preceded in death by his parents, Richard and Lorraine Bethel; in-laws, Thomas and Beatrice Cunningham; brother-in-law, Joseph Cunningham; and one niece, Victoria Bethel. A joint reception for Galen and Rose will be held on Sunday, July 21 from 1-3 p.m. at Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church. Coffee, tea and cookies will be served.

John Adams John Adams, 91, of Loveland, passed away on June 18, 2019. He was born to Arthur and Sally Adams on December 29, 1927, in Pleasant Hill, Missouri. John married the love of his life, Ann Katherine Oertli, on March 25, 1951. John and Ann served many school communities in northern Illinois, Ann teaching kindergarten and John serving as an elementary teacher, elementary principal, public school superintendent, university professor, and President of Aurora College in Aurora, IL. In 1987 John and Ann retired to their mountain home in Estes Park. Ann volunteered in many community organizations.

In 2010 John and Ann moved to the Good Samaritan Community in Loveland. John's sweetheart, Ann, passed away in March of 2013. The family thanks Halcyon Hospice and especially Seven Lakes Memory Care for all the love and support generated for Dad over the past six years.

Ronald Ouellette Ronald S. Ouellette passed away on June 7, 2019 at his home in Estes Park after a brief struggle with cancer. He was born in Portland, Maine on January 31, 1949, and was adopted on March 4, 1949 by Albert and Albina Ouellette. Most of his childhood and young adult life were spent in and around the seacoast and towns north of Boston. His mother’s death in 1994 brought him to Colorado as he cared for her the last several months of her life. He never had a real relationship with his father who left when Ron was very young. Ron had a tumultuous lifestyle that took him many places, both good and bad. Settling in the relative seclusion of a cabin in Estes Park in the last several years, his lifestyle changed spiritually, morally and materially. Ron was a trusted friend and “brother” to many in Estes Park and we were blessed to be-

come “family” to him. He was a champion of the underserved and defenseless and was grateful for the many he came to know. Ron was very competitive in playing Scrabble and backgammon and usually won. His spiritual struggle to understand God’s relentless pursuit of him ended when he handed over the load of his life choices to Jesus and received grace, salvation and true freedom. The journey of his life on earth ended peacefully on a beautiful June day, with friends by his side, and he left us knowing we will be together again. A private celebration of his life will be held by his family of friends. Please honor Ron’s memory by being the kind of friend he was to so many… grateful, sincere and a man of integrity.

Mary Lou Hoig Mary Lou Hoig, 85, of Estes Park passed away peacefully on May 5, 2019 at the Prospect Park Living Center in Estes Park. She was surrounded by family, friends and the loving EPMC hospice care the day of her passing. Mary Lou was born in Lincoln, NE on October, 4 1933. She moved to Estes Park from Omaha, NE in 1987. She worked at the Black Canyon Inn & McGregor Mountain Lodge for several years before finding her home in the reservations department at the YMCA of the Rockies where she was employed until she retired soon after she turned 80 years of age. Colleagues said she was an ‘Angel’ to YMCA visitors. Mary Lou loved Estes Park and the beautiful Rocky Mountains that surrounded the EP valley. She would often walk 10miles-plus a day in Rocky Mountain National Park … exploring, discovering and appreciating everything that the park had to offer. Mary Lou spent many years volunteering during elk bugling season; she sang in the choir at the United Methodist Church and she was a member of St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church. She loved the Denver

Broncos, the salmon at The Sundeck Restaurant and the Colorado wildlife … especially a squirrel that visited her nearly everyday for years … she named him Squirrely. She also had a deep love and connection with Long’s Peak and enjoyed a view of the majestic mountain from her home on High Drive for decades. Mary Lou is survived by her children: sons Oliver Hoig (Robin) and Noel Hoig (Andrea), daughter Andrea ‘Andee’ Hoig, brother Tom Cooper (Ginny) and grandchildren; Ivy, Noel and Bailey. A Celebration of Life gathering will take place on Saturday, June 29th at the YMCA of the Rockies Willome Building from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The family is inviting everyone who knew and loved Mary Lou to stop by and share a story or two. For additional information please contact daughter Andee Hoig at Memorials and contributions can be made in memory of Mary Lou Hoig to the Rocky Mountain Conservancy in care of Allnutt Funeral Service 1302 Graves Ave, Estes Park, CO 80517.
