At one booth, artist Lisa Nevot pulled us in with a friendly wave. Lisa shared that she lives in Fort Collins and loves coming up here to paint outdoors. After I made Lisa aware of the Plein Air opportunity occurring here each August, she made me aware of the water dish she provides pets in her booth, offering up that it’s the only amenity she found wanting in the organi zation of the entire show.

Last Saturday was bright and sunny, a perfect day for the start of the 2022 Estes Park Labor Day Arts and Crafts Show at Bond Park. Hosted by the Estes Valley Sunrise Rotary Club, the proceeds from the show benefit local and global Rotary projects.Wearing

At another booth, artist Rebecca Brown ing told us about coming here from Taos many times over the years as a tourist and staying at the KOA campground. She shared with us that this was the first time she was displaying her pottery at the show and was quite pleased by the friendly volunteers and enthusiastic first day crowds. A bit farther on, we spotted our friend Claire Beesley, with her quilts on display in a booth she was sharing with face painters. Drawing closer, we saw Lucee and Tegan, daughters of Wendy and Zach Bruchwalski, having their faces painted. As they giggled and laughed, Claire told us about making quilts for 20 years and participating in the craft show. Next, we stopped by to talk with Alan Martens from Loveland, the kettle corn master craftsman who’s a mainstay at events in Estes. The slogan at his booth is “Lighten up and let it pop.” Anyone who encounters Alan knows the slogan fits him to a tee. He’s here for the art and craft show this weekend, is at the Farmer’s Market each week and will par ticipate in his 21st Scottish Festival next week. Way to ‘pop” Alan! In the car, as we headed home, Roger started teasing me, saying that me, wear ing the mayor shirt and badge certainly encouraged artists and tourists to say nice things about Estes Park, its towns people and the Sunrise Rotary Club. Pushing back on Roger, I said I didn’t think the shirt or badge had anything to do with it, that Estes Park is a good place with good people. Then, I suggested we test his theory when we go to the 46th Scottish Irish Highland Festival on Sep tember 9-11th and the 47th Fine Arts Guild of the Rockies Arts and Craft show on September 17 -18th. Please join us as we do.

Claire Beesley from Estes Park has been making quilts and attending craft shows for 20 years. Alan Martens, the kettle corn master craftsman from Loveland is a regular at festivals and craft shows in Estes Park. Their faces freshly painted, Estes Park locals Lucee and Tegan Bruchwalski pose for a picture with Claire Beesley.

my mayor’s shirt and name badge, I left home mid-morning, with husband Roger to go check things out on the first day of the show. At Bond Park, we started going booth-to-booth. To my delight, one artist after another thanked me for the helpful volunteers that were “doing it right” by helping participants with booth set up. After making clear that I had nothing to do with the setup, I told each of the artists that I’d share their thanks with the Rotarians.

Volunteers from across the Estes Valley came out in great numbers to show their support for recycling at Estes Recycles Day on Saturday, August 27. Estes Recycles Day is entirely organized and run by volunteers, with planning starting in spring each year. Without the enthusiasm and hard work of these will ing participants, the event would not be possible. The town generously provides the location (the main parking at the Events Complex) where the large space benefits traffic flow to the various sta tions.Seventy-five volunteers from the League of Women Voters Community Recycling Committee, the Rotary Club (both Sunrise Rotary and the Noon Ro tary Club of Estes Park), and other com munity friends helped more than 274 households to properly dispose of per sonal documents, scrap metal and elec tronics.Donations for shredding help support Rotary scholarships for our local high school students, while fees for electron ics cover the costs for transportation and safe disposal through EcoCycle/CHaRM in Boulder. Scrap metal was transported to a front range loca tion that accepts metal for recycling. The Community Recycling Committee has recently collaborated with the state organization PaintCare, helping to es tablish leftover paint drop-off sites at lo cal businesses: Estes Park Lumber and Park Supply Paint. This meant there was no need for a separate paint station at this year’s event, as paint can now be re cycled whenever those stores are open. (Be sure to call first or visit www.paint to find out exactly what is accepted.) Could you benefit from 14 helpful re cycling tips? Visit and scroll to “How to Recycle Right” to re view a range of tips, some of which may surprise you.

If these walls could talk, they would tell you a compelling tale of mountain life in early Estes Park through the eyes of the Flora & Freelan ("F.O.") Stanley and the domestic help who maintained their house, property, and way of life.

An Estes Park U. S. Army veteran will speak about his long journey from jumping out of air planes to teaching others to fly helicopters through foul weather in battlefield conditions. Retired Maj. Virgil Yarbrough will share his experiences dur ing a presentation at the Estes Park Aviation Club on Wednesday, SeptemberYarbrough14.joined the U. S. Army at the age of 16, volunteering as a paratrooper. After Jump School at Fort Bragg, N.C., Yarbrough was assigned to the elite 82nd Airborne Division, then the historic 11th Airborne Division at Fort Camp bell, Ky. He was then stationed in Ger many.In1959 he returned to the United States for Ranger School, then served in Korea for 15 months. After completing Officer Candidate School at Fort Ben ning, Georgia, Yarbrough applied to hel icopter flight school. He flew Hiller H23 (the Raven) helicopters at Fort Wolters, Texas, then the Sikorski H-19 at Fort Rucker, Alabama, where he became an instructor pilot. In 1965 Yarbrough deployed to Vietnam with the 145th Aviation Battalion in Saigon and Bien Hoa to fly the early model HUEY gunships, which required significant arma ment modifications by their crews. After his first tour he was assigned to the 14th Armored Cavalry, pa trolling the Czechoslovakia-Ger man border. In early 1968 he trained on the new AH 1G Cobra gunships. He returned to Vietnam in one of the first Cobra units, working with the 25th Infantry Division in Cú Chi with a dual mission: protect troop carrier helicopters and serve as fire teams to support ground units.

Everyone is welcome!

Yarbrough comments that in Vietnam helicopters were critical and fatalities were high, with losses of more than 4,000 helicopter pilots and crew mem bers, and more than 5,000 helicopters out of 11,800 deployed. At the time helicopter pilots in Viet nam lacked in-depth instrument train ing. The assumption that helicopter pi lots could evade bad weather was challenged by factors such as terrain, monsoon, weight, altitude, heat, and air density. When Yarbrough returned to the U. S. in 1969, he helped start the first helicopter instrument flight program, at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Ga.Yarbrough retired in 1974. He was awarded the Silver Star in 1969 for valor in Vietnam.Joinusat the American Legion Building, 850 N. St. Vrain Ave. to hear Mr. Yarbrough’s story. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

At the Rich Flanery Team, we’ve helped people call the Rocky Mountains home for more than 25 years. Whether you’re looking to upsize, downsize, refinance, or even purchase a second home, we can help you, too. That’s what makes us the Rocky Mountain Lender. Get started today at

The elk rut in the Estes Valley is under way and Colorado Parks and Wildlife now urges us to please look around our homes, yards and businesses for items that the elk may get tangled up in. Just last week a large bull got his antlers caught in the ropes of a swing-set swing. The bull walked by and tried to spar with the swing, causing the entanglement. Passers-by called Colorado Parks and Wildlife to get help and a wildlife officer arrived and drug immobilized the bull and freed him. Luckily, this story had a happy counters such as the entangled elk shown on this page. Lets make sure to look over our yards and bring in anything that might pose an entrapment hazard for our resident elk with which we share our beautiful moun tainAlso,community.CPWwants to remind everyone to enjoy watching the elk rut, but please do so at a safe and respectable distance to the animals. Even though it is fun and educa tional to watch this display remember, these are wild animals, in the midst of their mating season. The bulls are con cerned with one thing, and one thing only, mating with as many of the females in their harem as they can. The elk don’t care who or what is in their way, their goal is to pass down their genes to their offspring. It is extremely dangerous to get too close to these wild animals. Avoid potential accident, injury or death by always viewing from a safe distance. If an animal is carefully watch ing you and appears "jumpy," you are way too close. Avoid eye contact and back away. Raise your arms to make yourself look larger. For photographers, a good rule of thumb is "give them room, use your zoom.” Never attempt to touch or feed wildlife, it's dangerous and illegal. There's a reason it's called wildlife ending but if help doesn’t arrive quickly enough, elk have been known to struggle so hard that they fracture their skulls and tragically die in these entrapments. When bull elk are pumped up with testosterone, anything that moves can be of interest. Swings, hammocks, volleyball nets and tire swings blowing in the wind pose a challenge for the elk and they will approach these items and try to spar with them. This can be a very dangerous prac tice as their antlers can easily become en tangled in these items we have all around our homes and yards. CPW is urging all residents to bring these items in for the fall, to avoid any en

What began forty-six years ago when a small group met for a few hours by the water wheel on West Elkhorn has evolved into a multi-day extravaganza celebrating everything Celtic. Estes Park’s resident historian James Pickering describes the festival as “something more than entertainment and good fun for an early fall afternoon, though it is that. It is also, by turns, the celebration of heritage and tradition, family and friends, patriotism and pride—an un forgettable experience for young and old alike.” A tip o’ the tam to founder Jim Durward and his hard-working team. Fair play to ye all. Slainte! “May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.” Edward Abbey Reader response ftm7522@gmail.comwelcome:

Ezra and Tia are three year old siblings that are very loving, sweet, calm and friendly. They are kennel trained and complete angels in the car and for the vet. Ezra is the more chocolate one and he weighs about 78 pounds and Tia, the orange one, weighs about 68 pounds. They get along with other dogs and hardly ever bark. They seem to be really happy together so we are hoping some one would be interested in adopting both.

Estes Park Pet Association is trying to help find someone who will love these sweet dogs. Please call (970) 286-1652 if you’d like to meet them. All pets are offered through the Pet As sociation of Estes Park, a non-profit or ganization that is your local humane soci ety.You can make a tax-deductible donation to the Pet Association by sending your check to P.O.

If the sight of burly men tossing a tele phone poles and hay bales high into the air doesn’t arouse your spirit you must be English—or worse.

If shepherd’s pie and a black and tan (what we Irish call half and half), or a turkey leg and Macallan 18 won’t pleas ure your palate, you probably are Eng lish—or worse.

Throughout the year Estes Park serves up a smorgasbord of sounds, sights and tastes: Autumn Gold, Catch the Glow, Duck Race, Wool Market, Estes Park Marathon, Rooftop Rodeo and more. Those of us blessed with Celtic blood lines know in our bone marrow that ALL other events are simply warmup acts—dress rehearsals, if you will—lead ing to The Big One on the weekend after Labor Day, when Stanley Park trans forms from grassy expanse to multiple venues for celebrating The Longs Peak Scottish-Irish Highland Festival.

Over the years our family has evolved a routine. Patrick and I rise early to shuttle a car to the High School, where we pay ten bucks for parking; EPHS band direc tor Kaylin Brennan is there at 7:00 a.m. to take our money. Late that afternoon, still humming Irish ditties, stuffed with turkey legs and shepherd’s pie, slightly wobbly from single malt and black and tans, laden with Irish CDs and new Celtic gear, we head wearily, happily back home, designated driver TBA.

Scott Wilseck, who has accompanied silent movies with piano music for many years, had several thoughts about Char lie“WhenChaplin.Ifirst started playing silents, of course I knew who Charlie Chaplin was, but I didn’t realize how special he was. Since a big part of many silent movies is gimmicks and slapstick, many actors were simply a way to trigger those events. Chaplin, though, had a persona, an identity unlike any other actor on the screen. He had a personality and was able to relate that personality without the use of spoken words. He had a whole collection of character traits that were unique and very entertaining. He had a lot of fan appeal and even today when we present a silent movie show, the most common question asked is “Will there be a Charlie Chaplin film?” His movies were special. There were a lot of very good actors in the silents, but Chaplin is clearly at the top of the list. In 1894 he started acting on stage at the age of 5 and by the time he was 19 was working at a movie studio for $150 a week. He also directed his first film at that young age and went on to direct many films in which he starred. By 1915 he was so popular that he was touted as one of the highest paid people in the world and soon was working for the Mu tual Film Corporation for $10000 a week. He con tinued to make silent movies through 1938, re luctant to work in “talkies.” He was cited in Times mag azine as one of the 100 most influential men of the 20th cen tury for the laughter he had brought to millions and also for the fact that he was well-known internation ally. In 1999 the American Film Institute named him the 10th greatest male actor of classic Hollywood cinema.

The theatre, which is the oldest movie theatre west of the Mississippi River, looks pretty much the same as it did 100 years ago. It is a unique entertainment experience.


Charlie Chaplin, the first really big star of the movies, had a number of qualities unlike any of his fellow actors of the silent movie era. First there were the facial expressions. He could portray joy, sorrow, love, fear and a host of other emotions without saying a word. He had that walk; a sort of waddle that was distinctly his own; walk ing along in the oversize shoes and twirling the cane as he walked while sporting the derby he always wore. He had a number of actions that were present in many of his films. For example, an other person might fall or be unconscious so Charlie would quickly pour a drink. The other person never got the drink; Charlie would con sume it. Then there was the fumbling in his pocket for a tip. After a few seconds of searching, he would look at the supposed re cipient of the tip and shake his head, or flip a coin, look at it and shake his head to the would-be recipient, indicating there was no tip to be given. He had a little laugh. Not the roaring belly laugh of a larger person, but a quiet little laugh that said he was amused with what he had just done.

There’s a chance to see Charlie on the screen at the Park Theatre on September 14 in “The Adventurer”, where he por trays an escaped convict who infiltrates high society. Even though he is tracked and pursued by law enforcement, he manages to stay one step ahead of the law and enjoy a lot of the perks of the upper class while doing so. It is a great film of the silent era. After “The Adven turer” two more films will be shown: “One Week” starring Buster Keaton and “Fluttering Hearts” starring Charlie Chase. Even though all three are silent films, they are all different, showing a different level of slapstick and a different style of comedy. All three films will be accompanied by the piano music of Scott Wilseck.

Sophia’s favorite place to travel to is Chihuahua, Mexico, to visit her family. Her favorite positive quote is, “Friends don’t lie” and the best piece of advice she’s received is to “Talk less, lis ten more.” After high school, she plans to go to college to become a teacher or psy chologist.

Sophia Ramirez 10th Grade

He was known as “the little tramp,” a delightful character whose appearances and actions on the screen were pretty consistent from movie to movie.

So make your way to the historic Park Theatre on September 14. The films start at 2 p.m., but the piano music starts at 1:30. Step back in time and relax to good family entertainment. It might be 2022 outside the theatre, but once you step inside you will be back in the 1920s.

Charlie Chaplin Returns To The Historic Park Theatre

He was slightly built, not a big man, so he often outsmarted his adversaries. In “The Rink,” he did his own roller skating and he proved to be very ath letic. He did his own swimming in “The Adventurer.”Themustache became one of his trade marks, along with the derby, which he would sometimes tip or flip to amuse a lady.The chase scenes were always enter taining. He was smaller but quicker than most of the people chasing him and he almost always was able to outsmart them. In one movie, he puts a lamp shade over his head so he could look like a floor lamp to hide while the foe searches for him. He usually won the girl. He was just too charming to resist.

September 17th at 7 p.m. Get ready for another free concert at Performance Park, this month featuring internationally renowned violinist, San draSandraWong.Wong began studying classical violin at age seven and pursued a goal of becoming a concert violinist for fifteen years until she discovered fiddling, and her world was turned upside down! Her focus then shifted from striving for technical perfection, to connecting with other people and cultures through music, as a way to build community and express our com mon humanity. Opening this door with an exploration of Irish, Oldtime, and Bluegrass music, her folk music journey has moved her into her current livelihood of teaching, performing, recording, and collab orating with other musicians from a diverse range of musical genres.

I am trying to get this article written and sent to Estes Park News in time. I am racing a deadline. Why? I have had my nephew visiting from Baton Rouge, LA for the weekend. He has been a de lightful guest. He is my brother’s, (de ceased), son and namesake. There is a medical conference in Denver this week so he came early to stay awhile with me.

I got us a pass to Bear Lake and we re ally enjoyed that entire trip but there were no moose to be seen at Sprague Lake. I love having guests but he has been exceptional. He is on my tractor cutting the lot right now. I have learned to always try to have some prepared meals in the freezer. That way the hostess is free to “go with the flow.”Ihad a stuffed pasta shell dish from my last recipe in the freezer which served us well on our return from Bear Lake.

Estes Park Museum Friends Tablesetting 101

This week we celebrated ‘Labor Day’, a day set aside to honor labor and give a small break to those in the working world. This is so appropriate since we need to consider the great blessing available to most: the privilege of work. ‘Blessing?’ Sadly, statistics show that over 70% of people surveyed say they dissatisfied with their jobs. (Consider recent ‘strike threats’ by educators, airline pilots, and others.) Many others firmly subscribe to the idea of a man named Bob Black who penned an essay entitled ‘The Abolition of Work’. His contention: “No one should ever work. Work is the source of nearly all the misery in the world.” And it’s easy to see that many subscribe to the theory that ‘work is bad’…and refuse to do it, even though opportunities to work abound. Others, while working, are lackadaisical about their jobs, calling in sick or just failing to show up frequently. The failure to enjoy one’s job is sad, since there are many benefits gained from being employed. Besides income gained, a job can bring a sense of self-esteem gained … a sense of feeling ‘I’m needed’. Jesus once told a story about a landowner who went out to hire men to work in his vineyard. After his first and second ‘hires’ he went out again and asked men why they were not working. The response: “Because no one has hired us.” One senses that these men felt unneeded and unwanted. Few people feel good about them selves when they are unemployed. Small wonder, then, that many out-of-work people let that sense of low self-worth drag them into less noble, even criminal, activity. This is very true among many young people. Recent studies revealed that nearly one-fourth of the teens of high school, and college age are not in school nor working. With that being true, small wonder that drug abuse and crime are rampant in some places due to that direction being taken by so many. In the midst of all that, each of us needs to examine our thoughts about our jobs. Are we thankful for them? Do we ‘find fulfillment’ in our work. Wise Solomon says that one of God’s ‘gifts’ is to have a job and ‘find’ enjoyment in our work. This makes sense since God placed Adam and Eve in a perfect setting in the Garden of Eden, telling them to ‘care for it’. In a perfect world, work was a part of the plan. Jesus once said, “My Father works and I work”, indicating that they both intend for us to do likewise. But, sadly, many do not pursue and seize job opportunities, choosing rather to have others or society provide for their needs. One recent report told of a young woman who proudly claimed that she was ‘the family bread-winner’ because she gives birth to outbabies, one after another, which results in Social Services stepping in and hiring her mother, at a large sum per child, to care for the babies. Such situations cost our society dearly and, unfortunately, set the stage for children raised in such a way to propagate that same spirit for years to come. The loss with such is not only financial but also results in so many children who lack that ‘self-worth’ so vital for happiness.

22 » Friday, September 9, 2022


So, what should we do? One thing each can do is ‘find fulfillment’ in our work and show others that we feel blessed to have the job and that we enjoy what we do. In doing so we will obey God’s command: “whatsoever your hand finds to do, do it with your might’. One great man put it this way: “If you are going to be a chimney-sweep, be the very best one!” Then we need to teach our children a good ‘work ethic’, giving chores early on and commending them when they do them. And we can also encourage others we see doing such. Several times in my life I’ve passed a 'Lemonade stand’, manned by small chil dren. Even if I’m not thirsty I’m going to stop and buy a glass, to reward their efforts. We can do the same on other levels, as well, ‘tipping’ appropriately, saying ‘Thank you’ often to show people we appreciate their labors, hopefully making their work more enjoyable and rewarding. Let’s show the ‘joy of work’ and encourage it in others.

There are no shortcuts to investment success – you need to establish a longterm strategy and stick with it. This means that you’ll want to create an in vestment mix based on your goals, risk tolerance and time horizon – and then regularly review this mix to ensure it’s still meeting your needs. In fact, investing for the long term doesn’t necessarily mean you should lock your investments in forever. Throughout your life, you'll likely need to make some changes. Of course, everyone’s situation is differ ent and there’s no prescribed formula of when and how you should adjust your investments. But some possibilities may be worth considering. For example, a few years before you re tire, you may want to re-evaluate your risk exposure and consider moving part of your portfolio into a more risk-averse position. When you were decades away from retiring, you may have felt more comfortable with a more aggressive posi tioning because you had time to “bounce back” from any market downturns. But as you near retirement, it may make sense to lower your risk level. And as part of a move toward a reduced-risk ap proach, you also may want to evaluate the “cash” positions in your portfolio. When the market has gone through a decline, as has been the case in 2022, you may not want to tap into your portfolio to meet short-term and emergency needs, so having sufficient cash on hand is important. Keep in mind, though, that having too much cash on the “sidelines” may affect your ability to reach your long-term goals. Even if you decide to adopt a more risk-averse investment position before you retire, though, you may still benefit from some growth-oriented investments in your portfolio to help you keep ahead of – or at least keep pace with – infla tion. As you know, inflation has surged in 2022, but even when it’s been rela tively mild, it can still erode your pur chasing power significantly over time. Changes in your own goals or circum stances may also lead you to modify your investment mix. You might decide to retire earlier or later than you origi nally planned. You might even change your plans for the type of retirement you want, choosing to work part-time for a few years. Your family situation may change – perhaps you have another child for whom you’d like to save and invest for college. Any of these events could lead you to review your portfolio to find new opportunities or to adjust your risk level – or both. You might wonder if you should also consider changing your investment mix in response to external forces, such as higher interest rates or the rise in infla tion this year. It’s certainly true that these types of events can affect parts of your portfolio, but it may not be advis able to react by shuffling your invest ment mix. In the first place, nobody can really predict how long these forces will keep their momentum – it’s quite possi ble, for instance, that inflation will have subsided noticeably within a year. But more importantly, you should make in vestment moves based on the factors we’ve already discussed: your goals, risk tolerance, time horizon and individual circumstances.Byreviewingyour portfolio regularly, possibly with the assistance of a finan cial professional, you can help ensure that your investment mix will always be appropriate for your needs and goals.

mentary and high school students out performed the state median in growth on the math assessments. While we have areas to celebrate, the data shows a need to continue to focus on achievement and growth in 3rd-8th grade reading and writing, as well as ele mentary school science achievement. An additional area to focus on is the percentage of students who are meeting and exceeding state achievement expec tations in English language arts (ELA) and math. A goal for our district is to work with families to increase the percentage of students taking the state assessments. Estes Park School District’s par ticipation rates in the elemen tary school and high school were significantly lower than the state’s participa tionStudentsrates. and parents will receive their student’s indi vidual results in a couple of weeks to see how their student is progressing on the learning of standards according to this one measurement.

From Park R-3 School Dist. It is the time of the year when districts receive the results from the state assess ments that students took last April. The state assessments require students to demonstrate their learned knowledge and skills towards Colorado Academic Standards. During the 2021-22 school year, third through eighth graders took the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) assessments for English language arts (ELA) and math. Ninth and tenth graders took the PSAT, while eleventh graders took the SAT. Fifth, eighth, and eleventh graders also took the CMAS assessment for Science. The state assessments give our teachers critical infor mation to ensure our stu dents are meeting grade level benchmarks and are on track for college, ca reer and life readiness. The CMAS and PSAT/SAT tests are just one assessment of student per formance. The data the district re ceives from these assessments, along with district assessments and classroom assessments, help guide short and long term planning, as well as support in structional practice decisions and pro fessional development for teachers.

Imagine having direct access to best selling authors like Hernon Diaz, Kate Quinn, Geraldine Brooks, and more. Each month, you’re cozied up in the comfort of your own home (or, in a se cluded spot in the library!) and you log on with a simple click or two. Then, you enjoy a live presentation with interactive Q&A sessions – yes, you can ask ques tions and directly engage with the au thor.There’s no need to imagine: this service is available right now. The Estes Valley Library is pleased to announce its part nership in the Library Speakers Consor tium (LSC). The Consortium creates 2-3 online author events per month, all of which are available to patrons of every member library. Books and authors will cover a wide range of genres including historical fiction, contemporary fiction, romance, poetry, business, personal growth, social justice, history, art, cul ture, and more. Events are free to attend and if you miss the live stream, past recordings are readily available. September is bringing a brand new, exciting round of virtual au thor talks, including our pilot event on Tuesday, September 20: Simon Winchester. Winchester is the New York Times Bestselling author of several well-known nov els, including The Professor and the Madman, The Perfectionists, The Map That Changed the World, and Krakatoa. This prolific British-American writer, journalist, and consum mate adventurer will cover many aspects of his work across myriad fields of his tory, technology, and geology as well as Winchester’s personal expeditions, in cluding his path to becoming the ac claimed best selling author he is today. A master storyteller, Winchester’s narra tive is like a journey through time. His keen intellect and ability to precisely and expertly weave everyday life into historical examination leaves his readers feeling awestruck at the world sur rounding them. To register for this author talk, to check out other events, or to learn more about the Library Speakers Consortium, visit Valley

We are very lucky in the Estes Valley to have a number of private businesses who assist us in diverting our discards away from the landfill. The LWV Community Recycling Committee calls these guardians of ecology “Planet Partners” because they partner with us to preserve the Earth. They have each found some thing that others discard that fits aptly with their business operation. Some simply add the item to their own recycling.Sometimes this has been enormous help, such as the Safeway collection of plastic shopping bags. We are, of course, hoping this continues after Colorado HB1162 (that eliminates plastic shop ping bags in many stores) becomes fully effective. After all, Safeway collects many types of flexible plastic that come from other uses: produce bags, ice bags, Ziploc and other reclosable bags, cereal bag liners, case overwrap (like film over meat trays), bread bags, newspaper sleeves, dry cleaning bags, bubble wrap, plastic e-commerce mailers, and they ac cept water bottles too. Plastic must be clean and dry, and free of food or or ganic residue – just like any other recy cling.Both

A few years ago I was sharing a mes sage at one of the prisons here in Col orado. I began by saying, “Men, God loves cracked pots!” After a short quizzi cal look the men erupted in laughter. I’m talking hysterical full belly laughter. What they thought I said was, “Men, God loves crack pipes!” At least I had theirThereattention.isgreat beauty in this life. Times of joy, success, family and blessings. We are grateful for the good times because we also know this life is hard. It can be cruel, devastatingly brutal with pain, suffering, disappointment and despair. Whether we’re basking in the beauty or hanging on through hardship, life can be empty and lonely without pur pose and meaning. Perhaps one of the rea sons we struggle to find and live out our pur pose is that we someonecouldwouldthinkdon’tGodoruselike us. After all, we’re cracked pots. Unless ties,recognizecommontosenseegoallowedwe’veourandfalseofpridedominateoursenseweourfrailshortcomings, char acter defects and brokenness. But God is sneaky—He loves to use or dinary clay jars like us as a conduit for His work and power. God is a whole lot more concerned about our availability than our ability. Second Corinthians 4:6-7 says, “For God Who said, let light shine out of darkness, has shone in our hearts so as to beam forth the Light for the illumina tion of the knowledge of the majesty and glory of God as it is manifest in the Per son and is revealed in the face of Jesus Christ the Messiah. However, we possess this precious treasure, the divine Light of the Gospel in frail, human vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves.” God loves cracked pots! If there is anything we get at Men on Fire is how cracked we are. There is comfort and encouragement that hap pens when we gather together recogniz ing and admitting our brokenness. Rather than thinking “we’re not all we’re cracked up to be” we believe we’re cracked up to be exactly who God wants us to be—cracked pots striving to let His light shine through our broken vessels. Little by little becoming better men in Christ and by His Grace. This is what Men on Fire is Rememberallthe storyDumpty?Humptyof He sat on a wall, had a great fall and all the King’s horses and on Fire. The King we serve can put you back together better than ever. But He will leave just enough cracks to let His light shine through you. We know. The fact he works through knuckleheads like us blows our minds. Frankly, it cracks us up! Sorry.
