Land Use IGA Under Examination: Is There A Better Way? Larimer County and the Town of Estes Park have a rich history of cooperative land use planning going back many years. This relationship has evolved as the community has grown, laws have changed, and desires of the constituents have changed over time. The Estes Valley has one of the most unique land use planning systems in Colorado in our joint land use planning area, joint Planning Commission and Board of Adjustments and shared Comprehensive Plan and Development Code. The current intergovernmental agreement (IGA) expires Feb. 1, 2020 around seven months from now. Our partnership has not been without challenges and the current system has had its issues. However, it would be a mistake to assume any discussion of changes and improvements to the current arrangement is an impulsive reaction to one project. I have the unique perspective of being involved in this issue since its inception in the 1990s. The current system has served us well for almost 20 years. We’ve learned a lot over those 20 years, and laws and the community have changed. With the current agreement set to expire, now is the time to look at how we can improve the system for the future. Any significant changes need to be planned and executed expeditiously. The alternative - allowing the IGA to expire with no clear alternative to replace it would leave the Estes Valley’s land use regulations in unknown legal circumstances. Just readopting or extending the agreement as is, without looking at ways to make it better and address the current shortfalls, would be equally ir-

responsible. Both the Town and the County are committed to continue working together cooperatively on land use planning in the Estes Valley. Neither want to split our relationship completely and take independent directions. This is not an “either/or” discussion -- there are many options to consider moving forward. Earlier this month, I put forth a proposal for modifications to our current system, based on ongoing discussions with the County and Town staff and elected representatives. This is simply a starting point for discussions. Because of its experience with various types of IGAs in Larimer County, the County staff is preparing model IGA language for the Estes Valley as a starting point for consideration. Larimer County has differing agreements with most of the municipalities within its boundaries. The IGAs between the County and Loveland and Fort Collins help coordinate land use in the areas around those communities and ensures development outside the cities is compatible with development in city limits. It’s not just about land use either. It includes coordination of transportation and infrastructure planning as well. There are some key elements to be addressed in considering a new agreement between the Town and the County. Both Town and unincorporated County residents must be clearly represented by their elected officials. Final decisions must be made (by state Statute) by the appropriate elected body -- either the Town Board or the Board of County Commissioners.

Notice Of Neighborhood Meeting The Colorado Department of Transportation will have a neighborhood meeting to discuss the proposed development of the CDOT Estes Park Maintenance Facility at 543 Elm Road. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 9, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at the Estes Valley Library, 335 E. Elkhorn Ave., in the Wasson Board Room.

Responsibility for implementation must be accompanied with the authority for implementation. Specifically, the Town and the County staff should process applications from their respective jurisdictions. Final responsibility rests with the elected officials -- not staff and not appointed boards. Cooperation and coordination of key infrastructure development, such as transportation and utilities. Compliance with state statutes and case law. Respect for property rights, as defined by statutes and the courts. Specific issues such as density of development, types of development, wildlife protection, hazard mitigation and others should be addressed in the development codes and comprehensive plans that follow the IGA. Changes to the IGA will not automatically change any zoning or development codes. The IGA merely defines how the County and the Town work together to coordinate land use planning within the Estes Valley. The next meeting of the Board of County Commissioners and the Town Board on this subject is tentatively scheduled for July 29. At this meeting we will discuss some of the options available and present draft IGA language from the County. This is expected to be just one step in our outreach, intended to both inform residents and affected parties and to hear from folks about their thoughts on how to make our land use system work even better for the decades to come.

If We Can't Reach You, We Can't Alert You Emergency Notification System When a disaster strikes, or an emergency situation arises, you want to know about it. Emergencies are imminent threats to life. Because of the enhanced emergency notification system, residents in Larimer County can receive emergency notifications on their cell phones, business phones, via text messages, and emails -- in addition to receiving phone calls on their traditional home phones. Emergency alerts in the Estes Valley are sent by the Estes Park Emergency Communications Center (EPECC). You must sign up at to take advantage of this free, expanded service. If you don't sign up, you will still receive notifications on your traditional landline home phone, but nowhere else. You Choose How, You Choose Where The enhanced system provides residents with choices. You choose how you're contacted: cell phone call, text message, email, home phone, etc. Plus, you also have the ability to choose the locations you want to be contacted about. Residents can sign up to get alerts about an emergency, such as wildfire, flood, or critical police activity at home, work or school. That means you could receive notifications on your cell phone about your home and your child's school, for example. How it Works The old emergency notification system only called residents on traditional home phones. Over the last several years, many residents have done away with landlines and use cell phones as home phones. Plus, mobile offices and busy lifestyles require that Larimer County public health and safety officials have the ability to reach citizens when they're on the go. The enhanced system will continue to call residents using their traditional home land lines, even if you don't register for the enhanced service. But it

will also allow residents to enter other information so that we can notify you in multiple ways. When you submit your cell phone, email address, business phone number and other information (or the "how" we should reach you), you are giving public health and safety officials more opportunity to contact you, and improving your odds of staying informed. Emergency Alerts Countywide We offer an additional way for you to receive a quick text alert for all emergencies anywhere in Larimer County. This does not replace creating an account and adding your cell phone to the emergency alert system. But this does give you an option if you want to receive all emergency alerts. Text GO LETA to 888777. That's it! You are now registered for emergency alerts. Emergency Alerts for Visitors We offer a special emergency notification service for visitors, too. They can text GO EPALERTS to 888777 and receive emergency alerts (if any are sent out) for two weeks! Who is LETA? Emergency notification is a free service provided by the Larimer Emergency Telephone Authority (LETA). The system is funded through monthly surcharges on hard wire (traditional), wireless, or voice over internet telephone services. Keep in mind, if you register a cell phone, call and text messaging charges will apply. LETA is a partnership between 25 government and public safety agencies of Larimer County including the Town of Estes Park. LETA supports 9-1-1 emergency communications to make Larimer County emergency notification consistent and effective. For more information, or to sign up for the enhanced service, visit

Deer in Colorado are having their young. Please, stay well away from does, especially if they are with fawns. Photos by Jim Ward

Be Wary Of Mother Deer; Don’t Approach Or Touch Fawns Mother deer are giving birth to fawns now and Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminds residents and visitors to be wary of does at this time of year. “Like any mother, a doe will protect her young so be careful when you’re out walking in town or in a wild area,” said Heath Kehm, deputy manager for CPW’s Southwest Region. Mother deer are very protective when their fawns are vulnerable to predators or other perceived threats. If you see a fawn, the mother is sure to be close by. Do not approach a fawn and never pick one up. Does often stash their youngsters while they’re off feeding; but they do not abandon fawns. If you see one laying in the grass off a trail, it is doing just fine. Do not pick it up. “Deer have done well without our help for thousands of years,” Kehm said. “They do not need assistance from us.” Deer are abundant in cities and towns throughout Colorado. In urban areas people often come close to deer in parks, along trails and in open-space areas. For the first several months of their lives, fawns stay close to their mothers for protection and nourishment. A mother deer is very wary of people who get close to her young and can attack. The deer’s perception of a threat goes even higher when it sees a dog. Every year there are

close calls, or attacks, when people are out walking dogs and wildlife have young nearby. “When I see deer, especially when young are nearby, I steer clear and give them plenty of room,” Kehm said. “If you are walking your dog, please keep it on a leash.” If you are concerned about a wild animal, do not touch it or pick it up; instead call the closest CPW office or local animal protection services.

Special Appeal to Community To Support Our Youngest Citizen’s A strong and sustainable community depends on the well-being of its children. Estes Valley Investment in Childhood Success (EVICS) has been providing childcare scholarships to local families since 2006, making it possible for lower income families to access safe and reliable childcare. On average, the cost of full day childcare for two young children in Estes Park is $1,400 per month. Without EVICS assistance, the cost of childcare is out of reach for many Estes Park families. In a normal year, EVICS is able to keep up with childcare scholarship requests through their successful donor-based fund. However, the last two years have been anything but “normal!” The Larimer County Childcare Assistance Program has been on an enrollment freeze since September 2017, severely impacting families in our community, and increasing the demand on the local EVICS Program. Unable to access the County Childcare Assistance Program, more and more families turn to EVICS for scholarship assistance. In a typical year, EVICS budgets and awards approximately $25,000 in childcare scholarships. EVICS Executive Director, Nancy Almond reports that EVICS has already awarded over $31,000 to families since January 1, and is at risk of running out of funds long before year-end. How will this impact families? Almond explains: “Since the beginning of the year, we have

provided help to 27 families, who work primarily in the service industry in our community. These families literally will not have access to childcare without some level of assistance. The ripple effect impacts local employers and businesses who depend on parents as employees. Access to safe, reliable childcare actually effects all of us, whether you have children or not.” EVICS depends solely on grants and donations for scholarship funding, and the organization is sending a plea to the community to help. Board Chair, Jane Stuart states: “We are inviting the community to pitch in and help, on behalf of local employees and their young children. Donations large and small are greatly appreciated and will have an immediate impact. When communities come together to support the needs of children, everyone benefits!” Individuals, organizations, businesses and churches are all encouraged to consider donating to the EVICS scholarship fund. Donations are 100% tax deductible and eligible for the Colorado Childcare 50% Tax Credit. (A $500 donation results in a $250 direct state tax credit!) Donations can be made on line at: (click on the DONATE button), mailed to EVICS at PO Box 3373, Estes Park, CO 80517, or dropped off at the EVICS office: 1182 Graves Avenue, Unit A. For more information, please call 970-586-3055.

Rooftop Champs Relish This Rodeo

think you know burgers? think again. CURRENT HOURS:

Four of the eight 2018 winners, including a world champ, earned NFR bids Rooftop Rodeo has always been an important stop for the top cowboys and cowgirls in ProRodeo. Whether it’s the mountain beauty of Estes Park or the big money up for grabs, it’s the perfect setting for those that make their living playing the game they love. Hundreds of them will return for this year’s event, set for 7 p.m. Monday, July 8-Saturday, July 13, at Granny May Arena in Estes Park inside the Estes Park Fairgrounds. Of the eight champions from the 2018 Rooftop Rodeo, half utilized the money won in this Colorado resort town to qualify for the National Finals Rodeo, the sport’s grand finale that features only the top 15 money-earners in each event. “We pride ourselves on being a place the contestants want to come to every summer,” 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. “To see that so many of our champions went on to the NFR shows the caliber of contestants we attract here. “One of our winners was Caleb Smidt, who went on to win the world title. Another was Will Lummus, who was in the hunt for the championship until the ninth round of the NFR. I know we’re excited to see cowboys like that back here.” Lummus, in fact, set a Rooftop Rodeo

record with a 3.2-second run to win the second round and the overall title. It was one of the catalysts to his first qualification to ProRodeo’s finale. “That was the fastest steer I’ve ever thrown,” said Lummus of West Point, Miss. “(In 2017), I was 4.5 on both steers and didn’t win anything. I like Estes Park. It’s an awesome place to be. They have always had good steers, and just the environment … “I’m from Mississippi, and we don’t have mountains. Everywhere you go around here, the scenery is beautiful. There are great cattle, a great committee; this is a great place to have a rodeo with great fans. It’s a wonderful place to be.” The $4,526 he pocketed was pretty wonderful, too. Rodeo is a unique sport; not only do dollars help pay bills and cover expenses with traveling across the country, but they also serve as championship points. The contestants with the most money won in each event are crowned world champions. Others Rooftop Rodeo champions who made it to Las Vegas last December were team roping header Tyler Wade, who pocketed $4,440 in Estes Park, and saddle bronc rider Brody Cress, who earned a little more than $7,000. “I love it over here,” Wade said. “The mountains are awesome. There are a lot of committees that don’t take care of their contestants quite as good as I think they should, but they do here. We appreciate every bit of it.”

Golden Viewing Opportunity Rooftop Rodeo Offers Patrons The Chance At A Gold Buckle Experience The most honored prize in rodeo is a world champion’s gold buckle. It’s the wearable trophy the epitomizes many hours of hard work, tens of thousands of miles driven and excellence in the arena in a given year. It’s a celebration, too, which is one of the reasons behind the newly dubbed Gold Buckle Experience at this year’s Rooftop Rodeo, set for 7 p.m. Monday, July 8-Saturday, July 13, at Granny May Arena in Estes Park inside the Estes Park Fairgrounds. This is the reincarnation of the VIP Experience for the annual rodeo, with a jazzed-up name to go along with the type of offerings available to those that wish to be part of it. “The Gold Buckle Experience is going to allow people and our VIPs to enjoy our rodeo in a special way” 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. “The town of Estes Park really opened up something great for our rodeo with the additions they did last year, and it’s going to be the same type of atmosphere with a great name.” The Gold Buckle Experience allows patrons a tour of the rodeo grounds before the show, access to the exclusive VIP patio at the west gate, dinner in the hospitality area, drinks and the opportunity to

utilize the padded seats in the grandstands. “We sell our Gold Buckle Experience tickets at $100 apiece, and those people will have a permanent host for the evening,” said Rob Hinkle, the community services director for the town of Estes Park. “This year in the Gold Buckle area, we have a stage that we will be able to convert into an elevated viewing area with its own bar. “By doing this, it allows us to put this really nice viewing platform in position, which we hope will enhance the experience for those patrons.” Over the years, Rooftop Rodeo has been recognized as one of the premier stops in rodeo. Much of it has to do with the picturesque setting of Estes Park, but it also has to do with the hospitality provided and the nature of the competition. Cowboys and cowgirls have marveled at the fans who make their Rooftop Rodeo experience even better. That’s why the event has been named Rodeo of the Year six time. “What we love about our rodeo is that it’s the highest altitude of any rodeo in the country, and it offers a beautiful setting,” Purdy said. “This community welcomes our visitors, and that hospitality rings true to the cowboys and cowgirls that come to our town to compete.”

I need to make something clear: I do not have gout. Last week I said I thought I did. That’s because I have a very limited medical resume. (For example, I performed surgery on myself once without anesthesia. You should have seen the size of that sliver!) To me, gout was sort of the rich man’s scurvy way back in the renaissance era, so I thought my self-diagnosis of gout would be safe from misinterpretation. Also, I thought it would be funny when I claimed to have it because nobody gets this old-world disease anymore. See how funny that is? Ha. Ha. I was wrong. Currently it is estimated that four percent of the American population has gout! I meant no harm in joking about it, and was making fun of myself, not anyone else. I’m sorry for all dear souls with the big toe knuckle affliction (mostly men over the age of 40) and hope a cure is found soon. Meantime, several readers offered opinions and suggestions: Barb sent an alert to beware of Internet diagnoses. She obviously doesn’t know that everything on the World Wide Web is true. And if she doesn’t believe it is, she should Google it. Another friend, Debbie, is a medical technologist who said I would need a lab test for excess uric acid to determine if I have gout. Most likely, she said, I have arthritis, which is what she has. Debbie has gotten rid of 30 pairs of shoes because they’ve become too small, thanks to her swollen toe joint. She’s been to three doctors about it. One gave her a cortisone shot, another said surgery is the answer, and the third said, “don’t have surgery.” What did she do? She

went out and bought new, expensive shoes! She figures that’s cheaper than having surgery. I like the way this woman thinks! My buddy Eileen (to the left so far she sometimes falls over) suggested I wear an orthopedic bunion corrector, which is like a sock for the big toe. She sent a link to a video that shows how to put it on. But anything that requires a tutorial is more of a pain than the toe knuckle itself. Craig had a simpler solution. “Don’t you know you’re supposed to go on Facebook and ask Jesus to heal your big toe affliction?” he said. That was news to me. I didn’t know Jesus was on Facebook. But there he is. He updated his profile picture in 2016. My cousin Marty prescribed Epsom salt soaks and magnesium gel rubs for my feet. If I actually had gout I might try this. Instead, I think I’ll go shopping for new shoes with Debbie, maybe grab a bite to eat, order a drink of… …tart cherry juice. That’s what Suanne recommended. One small jigger every day. There are no side effects and it works great. “It’s sour but you’ll get used to it,” she said. I’m not sure I’ll go for the tart cherry juice, but I did drink some homemade strawberry vinegar this past week, just like people did back in the mid 1800s. It was light, refreshing and delicious, and made me forget all about my big toe knuckle. You may let The Thunker know what you think at her e-mail address, © 2019 Sarah Donohoe

Estes Park Health is a Critical Access Hospital

Coolest Car Show In Colorado This July 4

The Fourth of July in Estes Park will once again serve as the dazzling backdrop to shiny chrome, tail fins, polished fenders, and Americana-themed nostalgia.

What does that mean? During the May Estes Park Health Board meeting, Chief Financial Officer, Tim Cashman, presented on what it means for Estes Park Health to be a Critical Access Hospital (CAH) in the current healthcare realm. Community members who were present at the meeting and heard Mr. Cashman’s presentation, felt like this was important information for the Estes Valley community to understand. How were Critical Access Hospitals established? The Critical Access Hospital program is a federal program that was established in 1997 as part of the Balanced Budget Act. The Balanced Budget Act placed significant restrictions on Medicare funding for hospitals and there was much concern over the future survival of Medicare dependent small rural hospitals. The program is intended to help preserve the availability of small hospitals in rural areas that are deemed “critical” to maintaining access to care for residents and, particularly Medicare enrollees. This designation allows for a higher amount of Medicare reimbursement based on a portion of the cost of providing services. While this reimbursement doesn’t cover the full cost of providing services, it does help secure the future of small rural hospitals. Since 2010, 107 Rural hospitals have closed. In a recent Navigant study, re-

search predicted that 21 percent of Rural hospitals nationwide are currently at high risk of imminent closure. Estes Park Health is fortunate to have the Critical Access Hospital designation and the additional tax-generated funds from

the community to remain financially stable and an important resource for the Estes Valley. Estes Park Health is working hard not to be in that 21 percent statistic. How do we achieve our CAH designation? A hospital that already participates in Medicare (Estes Park Health does) and seeks CAH status must meet these criteria to be designated as and remain a CAH: • Be in a rural area, or be treated as rural, under a special provision that allows qualified hospital providers in urban areas to be treated as rural.

• Demonstrate compliance with government regulations at the time of the application for CAH certification and all times after the initial certification. • Furnish 24-hour emergency care services 7 days a week, using either on-site or on-call staff, with specific on-site response timeframes for on-call staff. • Maintain no more than 25 inpatient beds that may also be used for Transitional/Swing Bed services. Transitional/Swing Bed Care is care provided when a patient needs additional care, but not nursing care, before returning home). • Have an annual average length of stay of 96 hours or less per patient for acute care (excluding Transitional/Swing Bed Care). • Be located more than a 35-mile drive from any hospital or other CAH or located more than a 15-mile drive from any hospital in an area with mountainous terrain or only secondary roads. How does a CAH receive reimbursement/payment for services? CAHs are paid for most inpatient and outpatient services to Medicare patients at 101 percent of reasonable (allowed) cost. Some costs are not allowed, including physician salaries (and matching revenues), café costs for staff, the provider tax, marketing expenses, 340b costs, Specialty Clinic, wellness costs, interest expense. Cost based is dependent upon annual Cost Report (Form CMS 2552). The Cost Report is publicly available, and a copy can be obtained in the Administration Office at Estes Park Health, 555 Prospect Ave. Estes Park, CO. CAHs are not subject to the Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) or the Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) like most hospitals. CAH services are subject to Medicare Part A and Part B deductible and coinsurance amounts. The copayment amount for most outpatient CAH services is 20 percent of applicable Part B charges and is not limited by the Part A inpatient deductible amount. We experience a flat inpatient reimbursement of $3,745 per day and most stays are around two to three days. Our outpatient reimbursement is 45 percent of our charges – Medicare’s determination of our allowable cost. Medicaid uses our costs, and then dis-

counts another 30 percent to determine their reimbursement to Estes Park Health. What is the advantage of being a CAH? Cost-based reimbursement is the primary advantage. Meaning, typical Medicare reimbursement is with Diagnostic Related Groups (Inpatient) and Ambulatory Payment Calculation (Outpatient). Generally, this type of reimbursement, known as a Prospective Payment System, is less than Cost. Estes Park Health uses a Cost Report to determine our reimbursement. The annual Cost Report is essentially a step-down method or cost accounting. It allocates all Administrative and General (A&G) costs to Revenue departments and generates a Cost/Charge ratio. Costs are allocated based on a determined metric, such as patient days, visits, surgeries, tests, square footage, meals, pounds of linen, etc. The square feet is important when allocating costs such as the Living Center, Administration, Dietary or other nonMedicare revenue areas. In other words, the more square feet allocated to Revenue departments, the better the Cost/Charge ratio and thus better reimbursement. The advantage that Estes Park Health experiences as a CAH is that we can provide exceptional, personalized community care because we are locally owned, locally based, and independent. The advantage to the community, outside of exceptional healthcare, is that Estes Park Health is one of the largest employers in Estes Park, providing professional job opportunities to over 350 people and creating an economic impact to the community estimated to be over $6 million per year. (Based on the 2017 Community Health Needs Assessment of 150 employees living locally.) Estes Park Health provides vital healthcare services, job opportunities and economic support for the Estes Valley community. The community provides vital funding that allows Estes Park Health to continue providing healthcare services locally – and for that, we are thankful. If you have any questions about Estes Park Health’s Critical Access Hospital designation, please send your questions to

Estes Park Archives Program This Friday The Estes Park Archives opens its summer lecture series this Friday, June 28, at a brand new dedicated location, in a shop soon to be named "Ten Letters" at 240 Moraine Avenue in the Gaslight Square complex. The subject of the first program is a difficult one, involving the as yet unexplained circumstances surrounding last month's discovery of a young woman's near-lifeless body in the Big Thompson River. It highlights the bravery and dogged determination of Estes Park citizens and law enforcement officers, and once again demonstrates Estes Park's concern for the safety and well being of its visitors, many of whom are unfamiliar with the hazards posed by an unpre-

dictable mountain environment. The latest factual information will be presented, with eyewitnesses invited to provide first-hand accounts. We may never know exactly how (or even if) events led an individual who escaped almost certain death from a car accident to trek from point A near the Estes Park welcome sign on Highway 36 to point B downstream of the Mall Road bridge, but that doesn't mean a sensitive topic should be ignored, especially in light of potential physical evidence remaining as yet unrecovered. The free program begins at 7:00 p.m., and all are invited. For further information, call 586-4889.

Great Decisions Meeting In July On The Rise Of Populism In Europe

Mass migration, and the problems associated with it, have directly abetted the rise of populist parties in Europe. In addition to calling for stronger borders, however, these parties are invariably illiberal, anti-American, anti-NATO and pro-Kremlin, making their rise a matter of serious concern for the national security interests of the United States. Come to the Wasson Room on July 2nd, at 12:30 p.m. to discuss with us! (Please note the slightly later time). Peter Gibbs will lead us. Thank you, Peter!

The Baldpate Inn is honored to announce a fascinating Summer Enchanted Evening on Wednesday, June 26th at 7:00 p.m. in the Baldpate Key Room for our talk: ‘Wildflowers In Your Backyard’ – Marlene Borneman Join us at the Baldpate Inn to explore the fascinating world of Colorado’s wildflowers with a seasoned naturalist, as we welcome Marlene Borneman on Wednesday June 26, 2019 at 7:00 p.m for our Summer Enchanted Evening. The program, Wildflowers in Your Backyard, will explore your knowledge about flower families, how they are connected, their habitats and rare species. Tips on identifying species found in RMNP will also be discussed. As a bonus, she will speak about native pollinators and their relationship to our native plants in keeping both healthy and strong in our environment. Hear the virtues of growing native plants in your garden and ideas on what native plants may best fit your garden.

Marlene has been hiking and climbing in Colorado’s mountains since 1974. She has climbed Colorado’s 54 Fourteeners, 126 USGS named peaks in RMNP and 44 state high points. Along the way became interested in the botany behind the beauty of wildflowers. Marlene has taken extensive classes and fieldwork earning her Native Plant Master Certification.

Estes Park Garden Club Garden Tour 2019 Please join the Estes Park Garden Club on Monday, July 8th as we tour several local gardens. We will meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Masonic Lodge, (1820 S. St. Vrain Av). This is on Route 7 on left just past Peak View. There, we will arrange carpools and hand out maps and directions, as well as descriptions of the lovely gardens you will visit. Because of the minimal parking situations on the tour all are encouraged to carpool during the event. On the tour this year are the gardens of Jim Conley, Jane Wilson, Bruce and Candace Kane, and Sharon and Wayne Groome. The gardens include a variety of styles, maturity, and design. The Conley garden is almost entirely natural with no intentional landscaping. Jim's goal is to create a “natural” appearance using a mixture of rock, native and non-native plants. Unique features in the yard are three cactus/xeric gardens with a large collection of cacti. The Wilson garden is a mature garden which has recently undergone a renovation to balance the ever-encroaching wildlife that we love, with a passion for flowers and gardening. The Kane garden is a large garden

never the same, as it includes a variety of ever-changing flowers and trees. Melding a love for animals with gardening, the garden represents a lush and colorful oasis for the bird world and adjacent duck area. The Groome garden is fenced against intrusion and has a mature profusion of flowering plants that thrive in our mountain climate with Sharon’s care.

Fine Arts Guild’s Youth Theater Production Of “Bye Bye Birdie” This Weekend This Saturday and Sunday only, come see the Youth Theatre production of Bye Bye Birdie! The Fine Arts Guild of the Rockies is proud to present this summer’s Youth Theatre Camp show June 29th and 30th at the High School Auditorium. This family friendly musical takes the audience to 1960s small town America and the era of early Rock n’Roll. Conrad Birdie, a teenage rock and roll idol, has been inducted into the army and his managers concoct a publicity stunt to send him off. Birdie will bid a typical teenage girl goodbye with a public goodbye kiss. The lucky girl, randomly chosen, is Kim McAfee of Sweet Valley, Ohio, a member of Conrad Birdie’s fan club. Birdie travels to Sweet Valley and the fun begins! This is an upbeat, funny musical with energetic dance and musical numbers.

ing,” she says. Other experienced campers share her sentiments. “I’ve always loved acting and being in front of an audience,” says Annie Lewelling. Another returning student, Amelia Bryant, says this play is a good learning experience because it’s more serious than other plays she’s performed for in the past. “It’s kind of like an escape,” says LilyAnn Smith. “You get to be someone else and live somewhere else, and it’s like a rush of adrenaline.” Lexi Richardson, Ayla Chinn, Lucy Leija, and Zia Kissinger all state that they enjoy theatre camp because they get to make new friends. “Plus, I get to faint,” says Ayla. “This show is so dynamic,” says Zia, “there’s a lot going on. And I like interacting with fictional characters to see how they would feel.” Several students are working behind

Director Danielle Hermon Wood, Music Director of the Bixby School in Boulder states: “The show is full of fun and happiness and joy. The kids have been wonderful to work with; extremely prepared and kind. It has been a gift for us to work with such talented, kind kids.” The cast includes some returning students, as well as some newcomers. Returning actress, Drew Collinet says it’s exciting to have the thrill of being on stage again. “I love the rush of perform-

the scenes, getting first-hand instruction from local legend and veteran technical director, Greig Steiner. “We’ve been painting all the sets and Grieg has taught me a lot about color and set building,” says first-time theatre participant, Logan Chionio. Tech students Jade Collinet, Chloe Coop, and Alison Raymond say that their love of art and painting drove them to want to build and design sets and lighting schemes. Olyvia Meinking

also enjoys art. “My dad taught me that I can build stuff and now I can paint it and create something beautiful,” Olyvia says. “A lot of the sets are really cool to make. Seeing how different it looks from stage one until now, all the detail being added, is so cool.” In addition to acting, singing, and building sets, the camp students are dancing. Choreographer Becca Greer, performer and choreographer for Inspire Theater Company at the PACE Center, says the campers are adorable. “The show is the good kind of cheesy—nice and gooey and melty. The kids are great,” Greer says. Overall, the cast and crew of Bye Bye

Birdie are excited to present their hard work to the public. “My favorite part of theatre is everyone working together,” says Isla Jackson. “We’ve created our own sort of family,” says Sydney Lewelling. You can see this family in action at the High School Auditorium, Saturday, June 29th at 7 p.m., and Sunday, June 30th at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at Macdonald Book Shop, at the door, or online at $10 Adults, $5 under 18, $25 family four pack.

After 42 years in its present location, the Elizabeth Guild Thrift Shop is moving! The new location is practically next door with the same easy parking. The thrift shop has opened their new doors this past weekend at their new address 437 W. Elkhorn Avenue. Though still in the same shopping complex, the new store location offers more floor space for displays and merchandise, as well as better dressing rooms, all of which will enhance the shopper’s experience. Displays are primarily set up with the assistance of the many volunteers that help to operate the thrift store. David Trabold encourages both regular customers and visitors alike to stop in and shop and see the new store. Lizzie’s Boutique, also part of the Elizabeth Guild shops, has moved locations as well. Lizzie’s shoppers will enter thru the main store, but have a completely separate shopping area with the same upscale merchandise as they had in their previous store. Their hours will now match “The Guild” hours so shoppers have more opportunities here as well for clothing, jewelry, crystal, kitchen and household items. The non-profit store was founded in 1975 to assist residents and temporary summer workers to find good used merchandise at a reasonable prices while

raising money for the Elizabeth Knutson Memorial Hospital, currently known to residents as Estes Park Health. The goal and mission statement remain the same to this day. Both shops are open year-round, current summer hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Donations are being accepted as always and the move will allow easier access with back door drop off options. (Please, no televisions/electronics, mattresses, beds, couches or other large furniture.) We hope our patrons will also join us for the official Grand Opening on Monday, July 1st at 10 a.m.

When questioned about what was the most valuable item she has responsibility for, Colleen states, “a hearing aid, but just one – I think it was worth about three thousand dollars.

This July, It’s Game On With EVRPD

Summer is here, which means it’s time to get your game on. This July, discover the power of play with Estes Valley Recreation and Park District (EVRPD) as we celebrate Park and Recreation Month. A variety of fun activities are planned for residents of all ages and abilities—including a dive-in movie at the Estes Valley Community Center, Ice Cream Day, free family and social events, and a photo contest. EVRPD is celebrating Park and Recreation Month, an initiative started by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) in 1985, and all the ways parks and recreation has the power to transform our daily lives. From providing us places to play, get fit and stay healthy to fostering new relationships and forging a connection with nature, our close-to-home community park and recreation facilities provide essential services and improve the quality of life for residents and visitors of Estes Park. “Estes Park is a mecca for recreation any time of the year,” said Tom Carosello, Executive Director for Estes Valley Recreation and Park District. “But summertime is especially busy in Estes Park. We are thrilled that we can provide such a variety of recreation opportunities while having a positive impact on the community.” EVRPD will celebrate Park and Recreation Month with activities throughout the month on the mild side of recreation. In addition to the activities we will coordinate, EVRPD has a complete list of ideas for daily outdoor recreation on our website, including a kayak ride on Lake Estes, a bike ride along the Lake Estes Trail, and a picnic at Cherokee Draw. For the first week of the

month, we will launch the activities with the weekly photo contest starting off with a Fourth of July theme. This contest is a great way to show off your talents while helping EVRPD celebrate the month and encouraging people to show how they play around Estes Park. A winner will be selected for each theme from each week’s submissions. One overall grand prize winner will receive a 20-punch pass to the new Estes Valley Community Center and their winning photo will hang in the Estes Valley Community Center for 2020. Visit for more information about how to participate. Entries can be submitted via the hashtag #PlayOnEstesPark on our Facebook page at In addition to the photo contest, the first week also features the recommendation of working out with a personal trainer. It is a great week to keep or get your fitness regimen going with our semi-annual personal training sale.

Michael Rambeau Michael Rambeau, Mr. “Rock-n Roll,” was born June 12, 1944, to Ruth and Harold Rambeau in Oak Park, Illinois. Michael crossed the finish line of life, receiving his checkered flag on June 20, 2019. Raised in Forest Park, Mike did well in school, excelled at and enjoyed playing basketball as one of the team’s star players. In his teens, he worked in a neighborhood grocery store, Calcagno’s, for several years which kept him busy and taught him his incredible work ethic. His parents would vacation in Estes Park, which would eventually become a dream come true for Mike and his family. Mike moved his family to Estes Park in 1975 after a tragic fire burned the truck and truck yard where he was a professional driver. The fire left him unemployed, but free to follow his dream of living in Estes Park where he and his first wife, Diane, bought a liquor store. They owned Mike’s Rocky Mountain Discount Liquor for 10 years. When not at the store, he loved to restore old cars. He brought a ‘55 Chevy, a ‘57 Chevy, a ‘50 Ford and a ‘61 Impala back to life. You could find Mike at a race track on weekends or whenever possible, as close to the dirt, dust, and noise as he could get. He loved sharing his race car stories with all who would listen. For Mike, a fast car was the best car. Mike also managed several RV campgrounds, his favorite being in Dolores, Colorado at Priest Gulch Campground where he made many lifelong friends

who share his love of the outdoors and exploring every inch of it. One of his favorite places to sit was at Trout Lake, just enjoying the beauty and the quiet. He enjoyed an awesome 15 years driving tour buses at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National Park. He loved chatting with travelers who made a friend by the time they stepped off his bus. He always had a joke or a fun story to tell and loved sharing his quick wit and humor, with a laugh you’d never forget. Mike’s passions included “Chasin Racin,” NASCAR, NHRA, car shows and any type of short track racing. He enjoyed listening to all types of music, but was hopelessly “Lost in the 50s.” A favorite daily chore of his was spending time outside cleaning and detailing his cars. Mike was preceded in death by his parents, younger brother Scott and son-in-law, Nicholas Kane. He is survived by his wife Celeste of Saint George, Utah, daughter Kim Kane, son Matt (Cristie), daughter Michele York (Wayne) all of Estes Park. He is survived by his grandchildren; Alyssa Kane, Brad Kane, Laeticia Rambeau, Maddy Rambeau, Gunnar Lordemann, Luke Lordemann, and one great-grandson, Preston Kane. He is also survived by three stepchildren; Stephen Cox, Chris Cox, and Tiffany Pagone along with eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Mike will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.

Ask the Expert— Planning Ahead

Bill Smith, General Manager,

Allnutt Funeral Service - Estes Park Chapel

Q: What’s the best advice you would give someone about funerals? A: Very simply: be prepared. I

don’t mean merely to expect to have a funeral or mention your nal wishes to your spouse, but to plan every detail with the help of a professional. The most dif cult thing we see is families who are not prepared for the loss of a loved one. A plan can help your loved ones to better cope with the loss, allowing them to focus on what’s most important. And, you can feel comfortable in knowing that your personal wishes are known.

Q: Is it really possible to plan my own life’s celebration? A: Yes! By making your

arrangements in advance, you can plan a service or memorial of your choosing. And whether that means special music and owers or a grandiose catered event with a string quartet, it’s all up to you. We help individuals create celebrations that truly re ect their personality

and passions. The result is a beautiful and memorable event that allows family and friends to say goodbye in a unique way and know that they have carried out their loved one’s wishes. If you have additional questions, visit your local licensed funeral provider. They are a good source of information for funeral, cremation and cemetery options.

She was born in 1931 in Almo, KY, in Calloway County, to the late Carlos and Lucille Hargrove Roberts. Rebecca graduated as Valedictorian of Almo H.S. in 1948. She continued her education, where she earned a BS from Murray State University in 1952. After two years of teaching, she moved to Louisville, KY to attend Carver School of Missions and Social Work, earning her first Masters degree in Social Work in 1956. While a student at Carver, she met her life’s great love, Richard, whom she married in 1957. Married for 62 years, they had three children. They lived in Crothersville, Indiana, then Albuquerque, NM, before settling in Mill Valley, CA, from 1967 - 1976. They then lived in Louisville, KY from 1976, until retiring in 1999. Rebecca was a homemaker, mother, part-time teacher, and active faculty wife at Golden Gate Baptist Seminary in Mill Valley, before returning to fulltime work in 1977. Rebecca had a 20 year career as an adult educator at the Kentucky State Reformatory, a men’s

correctional facility in La Grange, KY, until 1999. In 1987, Rebecca earned a second Masters degree, in Education, from the University of Louisville. Upon retiring, Rebecca and her husband, Richard, lived in Hong Kong, from 1999 – 2001, working at Hong Kong Baptist Theological Seminary. They fully retired to Estes Park, CO in 2001, until 2015, when they moved to Phoenix, AZ. Rebecca is survived by her husband, Richard, of Phoenix, AZ; her three children - Rick, of Los Angeles, CA; Cathy, of Phoenix, AZ; and Rob, and his wife Helen, of Thousand Oaks, CA. She also leaves behind 4 grandchildren, and 19 nieces and nephews, as well as many great, and great-great, nieces and nephews. The youngest of five siblings, Rebecca was the remaining Roberts, preceded in death by four siblings, Dot, Margaret, James and Mark. A Memorial Service was held on Saturday, June 8, in Peoria, AZ. Expressions of sympathy may take the form of donations in memory of Rebecca Cunningham to for Amyloidosis research.

Shirley Tallman Shirley B. Makinster Tallman, 87 of Pawnee City passed away on Friday, June 14, 2019. She was born October 6, 1931, at her family's home in Lamar, Nebraska, to William and Nellie (Edwards) Makinster. Shirley grew up in the rural farming community of Lamar. She attended Lamar Grade School, and Chase County High School in Imperial. She graduated in 1950. Shirley went to church, and trusted Jesus Christ as her Savior at church camp when she was 10 years old. She married family friend, Ray Sidney Tallman, in 1950. While Sid was away in the Army serving in Korea, she worked with her father on the farm. Shirley and Sid had four children, Cyndie, Rock, Ronnie and Robin. On Sid's return from the military, they moved several times, and in 1957, moved to Estes Park, Colorado. In Estes, Shirley was trained in a local clinic, first as a x-ray technician, then as a lab technician, and finally as a nurse. She worked in nursing for 20 years. She enjoyed hosting friends at home parties, and being active as a room mother, and attending her chil-

dren's activities. Later, her health declined, and Shirley and Sid moved to the lower altitude of Pawnee City to be near their daughter Cyndie and her family. Her health diagnosis was not good, but she outlived that by over 35 years. She enjoyed friends and activities in Pawnee, like selling Avon and participating in the women's history club. Soon she and Sid bought an RV and were spending many winters doing volunteer missions in Florida, Texas and Arizona. They took a summer-long trip to Alaska in 2004. Shirley took care of Sid in his declining years and after his death, she moved to Humboldt at assisted living and then to the nursing home. She was also preceeded in death by her parents, siblings and her daughter Ronnie. She is survived by daughter Cyndie and husband Paul Rohrbaugh of Steinauer, Rock and wife Becky Tallman of Glen Haven, Colorado, son-in-law Dave Smith of Colorado, and daughter Robin and husband Roy Varner of Kansas. She is also survived by twelve grandchildren and seventeen greatgrandchildren.
