Council debates pot issue By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

The regulated retail sale of marijuana is a topic most members of the Pagosa Springs Town Council seemed reluctant to even discuss until last week, when Mayor Ross Aragon announced there would be a work session to explore the issue. “It is very unusual for us to have the first reading of an ordinance,” Aragon explained at last week’s town council meeting, “without ever having any kind of dialogue, and I felt it was important to have that before we do the second reading.” This statement was a complete turnaround from the late March meeting when the mayor said, “We don’t want marijuana in our community. With recreational marijuana, what is there to discuss? What kind of message are we sending to our tourist-based economy? What kind of research do you want to do? I don’t have to do research to know that recreational marijuana is bad for children. It doesn’t send a good message. No one can prohibit discussion, but I think enough has been said.” At the April 18 town council meeting, Town Manager David Mitchem presented Ordinance 788, which would permanently ban all types of marijuana businesses from town. While council members David Schanzenbaker and Clint Alley questioned this move, protest also came from the general public. Bill Delany, the owner of Good Earth Meds, sent an e-mail to town council, stating, “There is a saying that I like. It goes like this: ‘Contempt prior to investigation is folly.’ Along those lines, I would like to invite each of you (individually, or collectively) to visit Good Earth Meds (retail & production) prior to your Second Reading. It is much easier to be distrustful of something if you have never experienced it. We are proud of the way that we have served the residents of this county since 2009 and would like for you to witness first hand, that which you are about to outlaw.” Delany also requested some time to address the council before the vote on the second reading of

Ed Center will close

The board of directors for the Archuleta County Education Center has decided to close the center at 4th and Lewis streets, as it has existed, effective Aug. 30. There are still sufficient resources to honor commitments during the summer and pay the staff and bills.

By Dick Richardson and Lisa Scott Special to The SUN

The Board of Directors of the Archuleta County Education Center, with great regret, decided at its monthly meeting on May 9 to close the center, as it has existed, effective Aug. 30, 2013. Each year, the board has struggled to find revenues to operate the facility, while simultaneously reducing staff and all other non-essential expenses. Each year has been more difficult. The projected deficit for even minimal operations in 2013-2014 convinced board members that the responsible course of action was to close the

center while there are still sufficient resources to honor commitments during the summer and pay the staff and bills. Like any nonprofit, the center has survived from multiple sources of funding and various collaborative partnerships. Those partnerships, which include a source of funding as well as program delivery, included the Archuleta County School District for an alternative high school program and Pueblo Community College for post-secondary course offerings via interactive televideo conference, local instruction and online delivery. n See Education A8

Pipeline: What is an easement worth?

Warm weather has come to the San Juans and the snowmelt in the high country is rapidly approaching its end, as evidenced on the peaks, reflected in the waters at Williams Creek Reservoir north of Pagosa Springs.

By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

Pagosa Springs has a sewer problem. This is not a new issue and anyone who has spent any time in the area has more than likely heard about the town’s sewage lagoons being at or near capacity, about problems with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, about the town’s unsuccessful attempts to expand the lagoons and, most recently, about the former director of the Pagosa Springs Sanitation and General Improvement District (PSSGID), Phil Stark, finally finding a solution to the problem. He negotiated an Intergovernmental Agreement with the Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District (PAWSD) and won a multimillion dollar grant to build a pipeline with several lift stations that would convey the town’s sewage to the Vista treatment facilities. Just when the situation seemed under control, another snag has popped up. “Just so the board is not blindsided,” town manager David Mitchem explained at the May 7 PSSGID board meeting, “there is one property owner that initially indicated they were willing to provide an easement for the pipeline — one of the property owners has signed the easement while the other has not — and this property owner is having second thoughts, now. We are working through that process. We are looking at other alternatives and also working with that property owner to try to come to an agreement.” Gregg Mayo, project manager in charge of building the pipeline from the town’s lagoons to

the PAWSD treatment facility, explained that all of the property owners had agreed, in writing, to grant easements across their property, but now that the pipeline route has been set, one of the property owners has threatened to back out of their agreement on the grounds that his wife had not signed it. Board member David Schanzenbaker asked if both the husband and wife were required to sign the easement. Board member Tracy Bunning, who also owns a local title company, explained that it was just like when a piece of property is being sold — if each spouse has their name on the title then both have to sign off on the sale. Mayor Ross Aragon explained that the route for the pipeline was set and that it was too late now to explore other options, so the board would be forced to negotiate some type of agreement with the property owner, monetary or otherwise. When the board convened a special meeting Tuesday afternoon, Steve Graham, the property owner in question, was present. “The other property owners have provided easements without compensation,” Mitchem explained. “Well, we have one property owner that asked the district to plant four aspen trees, but with that exception, the other easements were provided without compensation.” “Mr. Graham, when you signed this,” board member Don Volger asked, “correct me if I’m wrong, it was your understanding that you were signing a rough draft and you would get an official document that you and your wife could then n See Pipeline A8

County to form focus groups By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

Archuleta County’s strengths, weaknesses, needs, obstacles and priorities were the topic of a twohour meeting held for elected officials, department heads and supervisors on May 9. The meeting, called by the county’s new administrator, Jesse Smith, was the first step in a process of not only solving problems within the county organization, but in creating a strategic plan for the county from which to budget. “We’re starting over,” Smith said, beginning the meeting. “This is a new day.” The next step in the process, which Smith explained in the meeting and in a follow-up interview, is

to convene several focus groups comprising a variety of randomly selected residents of Archuleta County. Smith is currently working on letters to send out to residents seeking participation in the focus groups, with those letters anticipated to be mailed out by next week. Focus groups will then be formed from those who indicate a desire to participate, with each group dealing with the same topics, which Smith declined to release in advance. “I want spontaneous kinds of reactions,” Smith said. Smith indicated that those residents who agree to take part in the focus groups will receive informan See Groups A8

Opinion EDITORIAL Money for public education

WHADDYA THINK? Where should the county allow medical marijuana centers to do business?

Colorado voters will be asked in November to approve a ballot measure designed to provide funding for Senate Bill 13-213, which would update Colorado’s school financing formula for the first time in almost 20 years. Supporters contend the bill, among other things, creates equity in funding between rich and poor, urban and rural districts — and adequate funding for K-12 education in a state that has seen $1 billion plus in cuts over four years (a 16-percent decrease). Voters will be asked to approve a $1.1 billion tax increase to support the legislation. According to the latest evaluation of the plan, the current mill levy in Archuleta County would remain at 21.014. Change is due in Colorado’s education funding process, considering recent cuts and the ever-more dire need to improve K-12 education for the sake of children who will go on to compete in a global economic environment and deal with the maintenance and improvement of the nation. The current method of funding education is wrongheaded, woefully inadequate and, in the case of one court decision (the Lobato case), a judge ruled it in violation of the state constitution. The new school finance act would revamp the current system, starting with the way students are counted to determine state per-pupil funding. It would replace a single-day count with an average based on dates throughout the year. State and local funding shares for each district would be recalculated by adjusting for differences in median income and at-risk students, with the goal of determining districts’ ability to pay, then compensating with state dollars. The bill calls for funding full-day kindergarten and half-day preschool, and providing additional money for at-risk students and Englishlanguage learners. Other funding targets include $100 million earmarked for education innovation grants, $80 million for special education and $5 million directed to gifted and talented programs. Supporters of the measure claim there will be increased principal autonomy for allocating funds and greater transparency, via a website that allows visitors to track spending. A successful vote on a measure would mean more money for our local district in terms of basic operational funds, but a number of questions must be asked and answered before November. Among them: Is the plan truly equitable, given evidence some existing district mill levies may have been “grandfathered” in? Is more money the key to a remedy of public education woes? How will districts, and in particular Archuleta School District 50 Jt., use the funds? If one of the goals is to provide more funding for “at-risk” and ESL students, will the lure of extra dollars lead to better quality education for students in these groups, or will it motivate officials simply to find ways to keep students in chairs for the average daily count, while providing them the same level (some would say, eroding level) of education? Will funds be available to close the shameful difference in per capita spending between highly funded marginal learners and (in the case of our district) nearly unfunded accomplished learners? Can or will additional funds be used to provide advanced placement classes in our high school? What about vocational programs? How will the money be used and how well will it be used? The taxpayer has ample evidence that, at all levels of all types of government, tax dollars are regularly misspent, that money often goes to useless administration, to bogus show programs designed to hide minimal competence. There are many things yet to be revealed about SB 13-213, and many answers needed before we can make an educated vote in November. Karl Isberg

Taken from SUN files of May 18, 1923 The 1923 graduating class of the Pagosa Springs High School consists of five pupils — three girls and two boys. A neat sum has already been donated by the citizens of the county for the work of resurveying and replatting the Hilltop cemetery, but considerable funds will be needed to complete the work in first-class shape. Further contributions to this fund should be made to Mrs. Jessie Hayden at the court house or to the Civic Club. Money must be secured to provide surgical and hospital treatment for the three-year-old son of Pierson Baldwin, who recently sustained a fracture of the skull when kicked by a horse during a recent whirlwind in this city.

Taken from SUN files of May 20, 1938 Doctor Herbert Bolton, head of the history department of the University of California, an authority on early American history was in Pagosa Springs Thursday and Friday of last week. Dr. Bolton, accompanied by a national parks service official of Sante Fe, N.M. had come up from Santa Fe following the path of the Escalante-Dominguez expedition of 1766 as outlined by the diary of Escalante which Dr. Bolton discovered in the archives of Old Mexico and now has a copy. Under the supervision of Escalante, the expedition started from Santa Fe with the purpose of establishing contact with the mission at Monterey, Calif. Nineteen seniors will graduate at the commencement exercises, which will be held May 27.

Taken from SUN files of May 16, 1963 As a result of snow readings made May 1st, the runoff forecast is very pessimistic for this area. It states, “Forecasts for runoff of streams in this area are generally in the 65 to 75 percent group, with the Piedra being forecast at 48 percent of the 15 year average. Water users depending on direct flow rights will have some early season shortages and practically none toward the end of the year.” It further states, “Mountain soils have been somewhat deficient all year and are just now coming up to normal. This condition is primarily due to melting snow.” In percent of the 1943-57 average, the flow is expected to be 48 percent of normal on the Piedra, 55 percent on the Piedra, and about 60 percent on the Animas River.

Taken from SUN files of May 12, 1988 Archuleta County voters approved a proposed 2-cent county wide sales tax increase by a landslide margin Tuesday. Thanks to 896 yes votes as opposed to 128 nays, the increase will go into effect July 1, 1988 and be imposed on all purchases excepting food products and prescription medicines sold in Archuleta County. Authorization has been given to start on the master development planning phase of the East Fork ski area. San Juan Forest Supervisor Bill Sexton issued an official Special Use Permit to East Fork Joint Venture on Monday which enables proponent Dan McCarthy to move into the detail planning stage of his proposed four-season resort and ski area.

Letters Republic Dear Editor: Ms. Funk is again wrong in her view that we live in a democracy. Although it may be an objective of the mob to remove this obstacle to unimpeded mob control, we do in fact still live in a Republic. It is not surprising that mob mentality would erroneously conclude that shepherding a mob through a successful election would overturn our Constitution. Please, Ms. Funk, educate yourself as to what form of government under which we actually live, or admit that you do not believe that a form of government which grants every citizen, not just the majority, a right to be represented is wrong. Yes, Christine, there is a Constitution. I’ll leave you with a quote that I believe is, although I didn’t research its origin thoroughly, of Lord Acton: “The one prevailing evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections.� Darrel Cotton

Jobs Dear Editor: A recent article in “Governing� magazine indicates that most U.S. counties are rural, and recent U.S. Census estimates indicate the majority of them are losing population. Two-thirds of counties that the Census considers majorityrural, based on population density, lost residents last year. Archuleta County is no exception. Our net population growth was negative over the last two years, although barely. We’ve lost 14 residents over that time, going from 12,084 in 2010 to 12,070 in 2012 — a decrease of 0.12 percent. At this point, Archuleta County’s shrinking population results from net migration — more people are moving out than are moving into the county. So net migration is responsible for a reduction in population of 94 over the last two years. Archuleta County has not quite reached a “tipping point� where we begin to lose residents at a more rapid rate, but as of 2012, we are very close to it in the near future. Our median age is 48.4 and predicted to grow to 50.1 by 2016 according to estimates from ESRI, a GIS analytic toolset for economic developers. Older residents will predictably have fertility rates lower than other demographic groups, so death rates will begin to exceed birth rates. Adding to the impact of the aging factor, since 2000, the percent of Archuleta County’s population under the age of 44 has dropped significantly, even while the percent of residents 45 years and older has risen. It is easy to understand why our older population is increasing. First, there is the natural aging of folks already here, but new retirees are also moving in. Pagosa Springs and Archuleta County are a great place to retire — but only if you’ve made your living and accumulated your wealth elsewhere. But why are our younger residents leaving? Easy to understand: very few good jobs are available in our community. Steady, goodpaying, year-round jobs that they can count on to help rear a family are few and far between here. So, they move away, even to nearby

Durango where so many more opportunities abound. Durango had a net population growth of 522 over the same two years when we lost 94 residents. A job is not just a roof over your head and food on your table; it’s your health care, your kids’ education and your retirement. Jobs are important. That’s why I believe economic development is important for Archuleta County. What is economic development? It is job creation, job retention and tax base enhancement — quality of life. Quality of life begins with a good job. I believe our quality of life is largely determined by community wealth — both public and private, as well as by retaining our youth who enrich, enliven our community and keep it vibrant. Muriel Eason

Obtruding Dear Editor: Regarding these new commissioners and their counselor, Todd Starr. Since everyone seems to be buzzing about the recent acts of government in these parts, I fear I’m about to step in it, too. I should be more careful or circumspect. Certainly more tolerant, respectful of you good people deciding for your own selves. Not butting in. Now, by way of disclosures: I am actually not in your county, or state. And I have no business sticking my nose in your affairs; run it the way you want — that’s the American way. But, I am downright ashamed of you, my neighbors. And I think you have a runaway leadership and a pretty unwise lawyer at the helm. Now, maybe you’ll have to forgive me for saying so, since I seem so beneath you all in my thinking. And probably just wrong about it all. And I’ll mess up in explaining it, too. But here’s the way it appears. 1. Last week, the paper says Mr. Starr got all the county workers mad asking for more added to his 100 grand salary, so the workers, all of them, got no raise. 2. This week, he says the Casa elderlies should starve. 3. His friend the senior center director writes we should see the senior center close. Thanks, Todd, for all you do. Now, I know he can say he only works for these new guys. Still. Now the lawyer Starr encourages the new counselors in some really heady mischief. 1. They outlaw a year-in-the-future state initiative law, because they want to seem more moral than everyone. 2. They say they have to swear to the Constitution of the US of A, too. When we all know it’s to appease a few gun nuts. And to endorse the NRA gun-mongering lobby, when 90 percent of us, and 70 percent of gunowners and NRA members, too, want better. I, too, keep guns, very carefully. I got bears! And cats up here, too. A fella would be crazy not to. But what really gets my goat is Todd’s piety about his lawyering. Like pandering to a weak-minded audience, he says offhand, that when the county took over the senior housing, they only, “wanted to improve seniors ‌ quality wise.â€? Is that true? Now he says about that other stuff, “Well, the courts will decide.â€? Now, I am just a simple country school teacher, or was. And I’m here in Pagosa briefly for a second

RQVLWH colonoscopy in two weeks and was up all last Sunday when the power went out at 12:03 a.m. and the alarm flickered and I stayed up to medicate for that test at dark-thirty. But the way I learned it and taught all my students, we never say, “Just leave it to the law courts.� I’ve seen some very impelling screaming around about how the ministers hereabout should speak out more about stuff. Or the learned. Or everybody but you. Now, by my lights, that is hogwash. Plain and simple. It is everyone’s job to stand up for what he believes. Everyone has to decide. So, if we get led around by these pompous or misguided souls, we may well get real lost. And that, my friends, would be a shame. Just saying, of course. And I know I’m wrong and obtruding, too.

Support Dear Editor: A conservative friend asked me the other day what awful thing state legislator Mike McLachlan had done to have a recall drive launched against him. Had he stolen money? No. Been challenged by an ethics committee? No. Been cited for a DUI? No. McLachlan merely voted with the majority of Colorado legislators on common sense gun legislation: to ban high capacity magazines, to require background checks on gun sales and transfers, and to re-impose a small fee on buyers to cover said background check. Now, though, some are petitioning to get rid of McLachlan because, heaven forbid, he voted his conscience. He voted with the 90 percent of Americans who support gun control; Americans who are sickened — and terrified — by Aurora and Newtown. Most Americans, including Mike, support both the 2nd Amendment and smart controls that are trying protect innocent bystanders from unstable owners of weapons of mass destruction. I am as proud of Mike McLachlan as I am sincerely sorry that he is being subjected to ugly, crude, cruel comments and recall petitions. Please, support Mike McLachlan for doing his job, bravely. P.S. My conservative friend agrees with me. Anne Markward Durango

Center Dear Editor: It has come to my attention that the county commissioners are planning to close down the senior center. The seniors that come to the senior center are your constituents. They consist of at least 60 percent of the population of Pagosa. The center is very important for them as a place to meet with others of like mind, and as something to “do� with their time. The senior center is one of many seniors’ routines they have been counting on for many years. Why is it that the commissioners want to close the center and at the same time raise the salary of county employees? Are these raises more important to you and the county than the seniors, who, by the way, are still paying their n See Letters A4

LEGISLATURE Accomplishments, with compromise and respect My first year in the legislature was one of the busiest in recent years, and I confirmed my belief that the only way to get things done is through compromise and respecting both sides of the aisle. Let’s focus on some great progress for Southwestern Colorado and other parts of rural Colorado this session. One of the bills I am most proud to sponsor is a law that will require the Commission on Family Medicine to help support rural family medicine residency programs. Those of us who live outside of metro areas understand how difficult it can be to encourage doctors to come to rural areas to practice. Representing a rural district, I know that we need to encourage family practice physicians in underserved areas where their medical practices can thrive and develop so that everyone can have access to quality medical care. Colorado has a challenge

to retain and recruit doctors in rural areas, and this program will help us get better access to health care. I am also Rep. McLachlan’s proud to have Report helped broker a compromise on renewable energy and how it impacts rural Colorado. Initially, there was a proposal to require rural co-ops to have 25 percent of their portfolio in renewable energy by 2020. There is concern among rural co-ops about how they will achieve this goal, and my amendment helped reduce the number to 20 percent. I believe this goal can be achieved and even exceeded, given Colorado’s track record and expertise in developing renew-

able energy sources. Allowing rural co-ops to transition over the next several years will give us an opportunity to grow our local economy. Renewable energy is the future; oil and gas is the present. Finding a balance between the two is the best way forward. Other bills that I sponsored help update the Colorado Commission on Indian Affairs, provide free fishing licenses for veterans, give Ft. Lewis College investment authority, continue the Wildlife Habitat Stamp to provide funds to protect wildlife habitat, provide seed money for Colorado export businesses to help them grow and create jobs, support school resource officers to ensure our kids are safe at school and streamline the hiring practices for the Colorado Bureau of Investigation leadership. I was also the House sponsor for a muchneeded wildfire mitigation bill with Sen. Ellen Roberts. I am proud that almost all of my bills had bipartisan support.

Finally, I would like to give a big thanks to Tiffany Parker, La Plata County Clerk, who was instrumental in crafting a new law signed by Gov. Hickenlooper that will simplify elections for voters in Colorado, protect against voter fraud and save counties millions over the next few years. Her expertise and leadership was invaluable in making our state a national leader in giving voters options, modernizing our election system and saving money for local governments. Colorado can be proud to be on the cutting edge of many issues that were debated in the legislature this year. Whether or not you agree with the result, there is no gridlock at the Capitol in Denver. Every year, lawmakers are required balance the budget and pass laws that we hope will make a better life for our families and future generations. I look forward to being the voice for all the communities in HD 59 again next year.

taxes. Remember, they also vote when election time comes around. One time, not too far in the future, you will all be seniors, like us. Being a senior myself, I would have no place to go to all week, as I’ve routinely done for many years, and which I’ve looked forward to. Many of us no longer have family ... mates who have died, or other issues. Being able to go to the senior center offers a great social atmosphere, with food, and especially the pleasure of being able to talk, play various card and board games together, and discuss local events. Just because a few “old� sour pusses have complained about the center doesn’t mean most people are not happy with the service it provides. They don’t have to attend, and it seems they would rather destroy the service for everyone else rather than it not go “their� way. They can stay in their homes and continue along with their Alzheimer’s if that is what makes them happy, but please don’t allow them to take it out on the vast majority of seniors who enjoy the center. Please don’t close the center that serves the community and that helps many seniors locally. Where else would you have us go to meet with our own peers on a regular basis? Do you relegate us all to the “discard bin� because we seemingly no longer provide what many feel is a “service� to the community? Maybe you should actually “talk� to us and maybe we could provide ongoing service from experience ... something we have in ample supply, and youth needs. Is it that costly to keep a majority of local seniors engaged in the community? Mary Lou Maehr

Matrix Dear Editor: There seems to be a clear pattern emerging in our Republic. It is a behavior problem, namely lawlessness, avoidance of facts, and aggression. There are significant numbers of people among us that have no regard for the Constitution, no regard for the rule of law, and exhibit numerous signs of mental instability. For example, last week, a friend of mine was standing with a group of people outside a store, signing the McLachlan recall petition, when a guy in a gold 4 Runner with New Mexico plates drove by, twice, using finger gestures, cursing at them and using other typically mentally challenged belligerent behavior. Another example is someone used a marker and wrote on the back of my truck, “Republicans suck,� Republican being a presumption based on stickers on the truck defending the Constitution and freedom. Why are such people so afraid of the Constitution

and freedom that they attack them? All across the country, you see daily examples of these types of behavior that show name-calling, emotional ranting, avoidance of facts and existing law, and it all seems to be against those who wish to stand up for the law with truth and facts, and against the destructive actions and beliefs of a segment of our population seeking to destroy it. Some professionals have claimed it is a mental disorder, and I’m having to agree with that conclusion. Do they have no ability to control themselves and are afraid of those who can? When there is such obvious emotionally unstable ranting, avoidance of and resistance to, liberty, facts and truth, and an unwillingness to openly discuss or debate the facts, this supports the conclusion that a serious mental defect is being exhibited. I can only hope that these people don’t have guns because these would be the classic type to use them criminally. I wonder if they sense their own mental instability and figure everyone thinks like they do. Would any of these types be willing to have a public debate on the various issues involving freedom, rights, the Constitution and personal liberty, or do they prefer living in their little matrix of illusions and anger, and helping destroy the greatest republic in human history?

Baloney Dear Editor: The Colorado Democrat Party threw a temper tantrum and forced on us a grotesque gerrymandering of the 59th District, which, in turn, gave us Representative Michael McLachlan. McLachlan not only lied to us about his stand on gun control and the 2nd Amendment, but he walks in lock-step with the liberal Democrat fanatics in the House of Representatives. They have approved a bill that will require Tri-State Generation and Transmission that supplies Colorado’s electrical cooperatives, like La Plata Electric Association, to increase the percentage of electricity supplied that is derived from renewable sources. Renewable resources are energy from wind, solar, hydroelectric and biomass like methanol. This is called the RES, Renewable Energy Standard. It was 10 percent and with this bill it will be increased to 20 percent. Sarah Propst of the Interwest Energy Alliance said: “With its world class wind and solar resources, Colorado is a leader on clean energy development. Many Colorado utility customers are already benefitting from affordable, predictably priced renewable energy, and Colorado communities and families are benefitting from clean energy jobs. This legislation

will bring more of these good things to the state.� Baloney. The only reason electricity might be affordable is because of the many billions of dollars of subsidies paid to suppliers of renewable energy. Congress has, however, considered doing away with those subsidies which will cause the costs to soar. And supply is not predictable. There is no electricity if the sun doesn’t shine or the wind blow. Even with the subsidies, TriState predicts it will cost its customers, that’s you and me, folks, $3 billion. Now why would they do something so stupid? All for “clean energy.� And what is clean energy? It’s energy that is produced without carbon dioxide emissions. All in the name of a discredited theory of global warming. But the Democrats don’t care what it costs us as long as they gain even more control of our lives and make their enviro-freak friends happy. I hope the McLachlan recall is successful, but, if not, we must defeat him in 2014. George Thompson Durango

Judge Dear Editor: The letter of Greg Giehl (SUN 5/9), containing a critique of SUN editorial policy, concludes with, “We the people are starving from lack of truth.� This letter slakes that hunger for truth by offering a critique of the May 9 editorial favoring the legislature’s approval of gay unions and by providing SUN readers with the opportunity to consider truths relative to this issues. First, may I challenge the editor’s claim in his title that these unions are a “long overdue right� (from whence?). Since the Constitution acknowledges that God the creator endows rights, and since the Bible teaches that God condemns homosexual activity, then how can God grant this activity as a right? Now, may I cite the law of God who creates male and female and regulations their behavior? God’s laws and truths are eternal, immutable, for all people of all time, supersede even the Constitution, and cannot be countermanded or rationalized by any humans including state legislators and editors. God ruled: “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; such a thing is an abomination� (Lev. 18:22), and if men do so, “they shall both be put to death� (Lev.20:13). St. Paul reaffirms God’s law by chastising the Romans for their “unnatural intercourse� and “shameful things� resulting in a “penalty for their perversity� (Rom. 1:26-28). The Roman Empire was destroyed by this internal depravity, not by any external force. Will the United States suffer the same consequence because of increasing

immorality? The Catholic Catechism (No. 2357-58) cites the declarations of Genesis, Romans, I Corinthians and I Timothy that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered� and “contrary to the natural law.� However, homosexuals “must be accepted with compassion and be urged to unite to the Lord’s cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.� Indeed, Jesus died on the cross to bring love and redemption to all sinners, but not to approve the sins. St. John teaches “the way we come to understand love was that Jesus laid down his life for us,� so, “let us love in deed and truth as He commanded us� (I John 3:16-23). Thus, all persons must love each other, but perverse relations are not expression of true love. Nor is the failure of “regular� marriages justification for the promotion of “irregular� ones. This is a non sequitur (i.e., does not follow logically). Furthermore, the editorial’s claim of durability of gay unions does not conform to the truth that homosexual unions (“marriages�) only last about a year and lesbian unions a little longer. How should we react to these new developments relative to gay unions? Saints Peter and John give us an answer. The high ranking Jewish leaders arrested them and ordered them not “to speak the name of Jesus or teach about him.� To this, Peter and John answered with appropriate civil disobedience: “Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sign for us to obey you rather than god� (Acts 4:19).

Is your business prepared for emergencies? By Mary Jo Coulehan SUN Columnist

We continue to encourage businesses to take this springtime season to look at the way they are doing business and to improve various business practices. We have written about improving your business acumen by taking a Maximizing Your Membership class or meeting with an SBDC advisor, and this week we want to deal with the topic of protecting your business. Snowfall was below normal this year, rains have been nominal and summer is fast approaching. Is your business protected and do you have an emergency plan for your business? There are some simple steps you can take to make sure your business is prepared in case you need to evacuate. Whether it be a fire or flood, are you covered with a traditional insurance plan, do you have an emergency contingency plan and are you prepared to operate your business remotely? There are several systems and websites available to help you

plan accordingly. The American Red Cross has a wonderful and useful site to help you with planning for an emergency. It has a checklist of items you should be aware of, including an evacuation plan, what to take and what you might do if you have time prior to any evacuation. If you own or operate a restaurant facility, can you get your customers out of the restaurant in an orderly, safe and timely fashion? Can you do the same if you have a retail establishment and the front door is blocked? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about your business systems and think about these few questions. Is your computer backed up daily, and backed up offsite? If you function on a database system, as the Chamber of Commerce does, is your database backed up and do you have easy access to the backup? Do you have hard copies of any database information? Is the hard copy material in a location that would be easy to access and remove? What other files, discs or thumb drives must you have to function should you need to do so away from your place of business? Is your

inventory up to date? Could you submit to the insurance company an accurate inventory to replace your losses? In your absence as the owner, have you identified who would be in charge of your business; can you identify a succession up to three people deep? Have you created an emergency kit to grab and go, if necessary? If you cannot get back into your business for a while â&#x20AC;&#x201D; what can you do? Can you function remotely; if you need store frontage, have you identified an alternative site? If you are aware of your emergency plans, are your employees also aware of it? Do they know what to do in case of an emergency or evacuation? Most people think that an emergency will never happen to them. They are then caught with their proverbial pants down singing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Should Haveâ&#x20AC;? blues. Take a few hours to get yourself ready. These few hours of committed time to prepare could save you thousands of dollars in losses or recoup what is rightfully yours. Perhaps you can simply video what is in your store or business location. Go online to www.readyrating.com with the American Red Cross and register free for the emergency preparedness checklist. You can also visit the FEMA website at www.ready. gov/community-and-other-plans, which will help you through the emergency process. The emergency season is upon us. Flooding will probably not occur, but fires and lightening strikes are considered high dangers again this year. And while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking about your business, give some emergency preparedness thought to your home as well â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially if you run a home-based business. Prepare a grab bag to throw in the car. Again, the websites mentioned will assist you in items to take with you. One other important tip is to register for Archuleta County Emergency notifications. You can sign up for these free alerts by logging on at www.acemergency.org. This website will give you Archuleta County emergency information including prescribed burns, lockdowns, winter storm warnings, missing persons, reverse 911 and more emergency information. If you would like some information or ready-to-reference pages that can help you through this disasterplanning process, contact me at the Chamber for a packet of helpful information. We want you to be prepared and to be able to minimize your downtime should an emergency occur.

and our businesses on receiving a recent award from the Colorado Chamber of Commerce Executives and the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry. Our Chamber received an award for the Largest Increase in Members in 2012. The Pagosa Chamber experienced an increase of over 18 percent in 2012. Chambers were asked to submit their membership numbers to CACI. Of the 35 or so Chambers belonging to CCCE, the Pagosa Springs Chamber had the most improved membership roster. We were honored to receive this award and attribute this award to the hard work performed by the chamber staff, especially Jan Santopietro, membership coordinator. Our board of directors has made a focused effort to contact new members and our organization stays in contact with the members. Our members are getting more involved and finding out how the Chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amenities can work for their business; they are getting involved in the community and they are looking for more education and services from the Chamber. Without the trust of our members, we would not have been able to submit our improvement numbers and win this award. Thank you, members, for your support. Upon receiving the award, I mentioned that I would be back receiving the award again next year, since I trust our membership will continue to grow. I hope I am proven right.

Mark Garcia elected to LPEA board By Indiana Reed Special to The SUN

The La Plata Electric Association, Inc. (LPEA) board of directors will have three new faces when it convenes for its next meeting on May 15. Mark Garcia unseated District 1 (Archuleta County) incumbent Lindon Stewart. Garcia has lived in Pagosa since 1994. He is a mechanical engineer and currently serves as the executive director for the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. A consultant to local governments in southern Colorado, he was Pagosa Springs Town Manager 2003-2008. He also served on the LPEA Round Up Foundation Board 2000-2004 and was president for three years. Jack D. Turner beat district 4 incumbent Herb Brodsky.

Michael Rendon won in District 3 over Richard Alan Yoder, to fill the seat of retiring Harry Goff. Election results were announced at the LPEA annual meeting, held Saturday, May 11, at Sky Ute Casino and Resort, Ignacio. This year, in District 2, incumbent director Tom Compton was the only nominee, thus he retains his seat. In accordance with LPEAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bylaws, annually one seat in each of LPEAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four districts comes up for election. Out of the 22,827 LPEA members who were mailed ballots, only 5,140 cast votes, for a 22.5 percent return. In contrast, approximately 26 percent of LPEAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residential and commercial members returned ballots in 2012. Ballots were prepared in accordance with requirements of the La Plata County Clerk,

and the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electronic voting equipment was used by Fredrick Zink & Associates, the independent accounting firm retained to tally the votes. In a very close decision in District 1, Archuleta County, 1,554 of the approximately 7,700 LPEA members returned ballots with incumbent Stewart receiving 760 votes and challenger Garcia receiving 792. In District 3, the City of Durango, new candidates Rendon and Yoder received 1,305 and 544 votes, respectively. District 3 includes approximately 7,400 voters. Candidate Turner was elected as the director for District 4, which covers north and east La Plata County and includes approximately 7,700 eligible voters. Turner received 895 votes to incumbent Brodskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 838.

USDA payments to farmers, ranchers to resume The U.S. Department of Agricultureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan M. Garcia announced last week that farm payments, which had been temporarily suspended due to sequestration, were scheduled to resume May 8. This includes payments for the 2011 Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments Program (SURE), the Noninsured Crop Assistance Program (NAP) and the Milk Income Loss Contract Program (MILC). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pleased to announce that

farmers and ranchers can expect to begin receiving their payments,â&#x20AC;? said Garcia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We appreciate the producersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; patience during the delay. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working diligently to get these payments out as quickly as possible.â&#x20AC;? On March 4, 2013, FSA began a temporary suspension of FSA program payments in order to assess the impact of sequestration and determine the least-disruptive process possible for carrying out required cuts. The Department will use the Secretaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limited authority to transfer funds to avoid

reducing these program payments. Producers should be advised that program sign-up periods currently underway have the following enrollment deadlines: 2013 Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) Program â&#x20AC;&#x201D; June 3; 2011 SURE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; June 7; and the 2013 Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Aug. 2. Producers should contact their local Farm Service Agency office as soon as possible for appointments to enroll in these programs before the deadlines. USDA has made a concerted effort to deliver results for the

American people, even as USDA implements sequestration â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the across-the-board budget reductions mandated under terms of the Budget Control Act. USDA has already undertaken historic efforts since 2009 to save more than $828 million in taxpayer funds through targeted, common-sense budget reductions. These reductions have put USDA in a better position to carry out its mission, while implementing sequester budget reductions in a fair manner that causes as little disruption as possible.

Claiming home office deduction simpler this year By Karen A. Connelly Internal Revenue Service

If you use part of your home for your business, you may qualify to deduct expenses for the business use of your home. This is commonly referred to as the home office deduction. In the past, claiming the home office deduction required filling out a 43-line form (Form 8829) that usually required complex calculations of allocated expenses, depreciation and carryovers of unused deductions. In January, the IRS announced a simplified option that provides eligible taxpayers an easier path to claiming the home office deduction and reduces the paperwork and recordkeeping on small businesses. The new optional deduction for business use

of a home is capped at $1,500 per year based on $5 a square foot for up to 300 square feet. Taxpayers claiming the optional deduction will complete a significantly simplified form. Though homeowners using the new option cannot depreciate the portion of their home used in a trade or business, they can claim allowable mortgage interest, real estate taxes and casualty losses on the home as itemized deductions on Schedule A. These deductions need not be allocated between personal and business use, as is required under the regular method. Business expenses unrelated to the home, such as advertising, supplies and wages paid to employees are still fully deductible. The requirements that a home office must be used regularly and exclusively for business

and the limit tied to the income derived from the particular business, still apply under the new option. The new simplified option is available starting with the 2013 tax return most taxpayers file early in 2014. Generally, in order to claim a deduction for a home office, you must use a part of your home exclusively and regularly for business purposes. The part of your home that you use for business purposes must also be: â&#x20AC;˘ your principal place of business, or â&#x20AC;˘ a place where you meet with patients, clients or customers in the normal course of your business, or â&#x20AC;˘ a separate structure not attached to your home. Examples might include a studio, workshop, garage or barn.

LPEA to host lighting technology workshop May 22 By Indiana Reed Special to The SUN

Continuing its free information series designed to help members â&#x20AC;&#x153;save their energy,â&#x20AC;? La Plata Electric Association (LPEA) will host Basics of Bulbs, Understanding New Lighting Technology, Wednesday, May 22, 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at LPEAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headquarters in Bodo Industrial Park, Durango. All those interested in learning

more about saving energy through lighting are invited to attend. Lunch will be served. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lighting technology continues to evolve quickly, so we wanted to host another workshop,â&#x20AC;? said Ray Pierotti, project specialist who oversees lighting programs for LPEA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We continue to answer a lot of questions for our members, especially concerning the newer, energy-efficient LED bulbs.â&#x20AC;? This workshop will also feature

a presentation on energy-saving control strategies from Dave Warner of Centauri Sales. Topics will include Occupancy Sensing: What it is and how it basically works; Dimming: Does it really save energy? Is it really expensive?; Daylight Harvesting: What is it? Can I do it?; What All is Involved with Installation?; and What kind of payback Can I assume? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terrific that Dave can join us,â&#x20AC;? added Pierotti. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is new information that we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t included

in earlier lighting workshops â&#x20AC;&#x201D; information that I think will be of great value. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to learning a lot.â&#x20AC;? LPEA offers a selection of rebates for both residents and businesses that invest in new lighting technology, and these options will be reviewed at the workshop as well. Because lunch will be served, those interested in attending are asked to R.S.V.P. to Ray Pierotti, rpierotti@lpea.coop or 382-7770.

Who will manage Casa de los Arcos? By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

Archuleta County Housing Authority is beginning the process of seeking a new management company for Casa de los Arcos â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a housing facility located on South 8th Street in downtown Pagosa Springs. Casa is currently managed by Archuleta County government, which took over management from Housing Solutions for the Southwest several years ago due to concerns over financial record keeping. Then, in late April, the Archuleta County Board of Commissioners informed the ACHA board that the county may not continue its management of Casa. The April announcement came during an emergency meeting of the ACHA board that came on the heels of a BoCC executive session in which the resignation of Casa director Jodi Halstead was discussed. At the ACHA meeting, County Attorney Todd Starr noted that,

aside from the resignation of Halstead (effective May 1), the county discussed the expense to the county of running Casa and noted that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;More likely than not, this is probably not a service the county can afford to continue to maintain.â&#x20AC;? No official decision has been made by the BoCC about whether or not the county will continue to manage Casa beyond the end of the current fiscal year, which ends July 31. But, strapped with uncertainty, the ACHA board has voted to move forward by seeking a new management company to replace Archuleta County. That decision came at a May 10 meeting of the ACHA board. At that meeting, commissioner and ACHA board member Steve Wadley told the rest of the board that the county spends about $105,000 in county time, not including the director position, on managing Casa â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an amount that, including the director, exceeds the $128,000 ACHA board member Lynn Constan reported Casa col-

lects in rents. Discussion at the meeting indicated several possibilities for management companies with the capability of taking over Casa â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including HSSW (which manages neighboring Socorro Senior Living Center), Archuleta Housing Corporation (which manages several local facilities), and Montezuma County Housing Authority â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all of which had shown interest. However, residents at the meeting, as well residents in an earlier, informal meeting with interim director John Egan, have shown a dislike for Archuleta Housing Corporation, leading Archuleta Housing Corporation board member Don Ford to inform the ACHA board that Archuleta Housing Corporation would not submit a bid for management of Casa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think you would lose tenants,â&#x20AC;? Egan said of Archuleta Housing Corporation taking over management, in recapping his meeting with the Casa residents. Following further discussion on how to proceed with relation to

HUD requirements, the ACHA board approved with two unanimous decisions to move toward finding a new management company and to request that Archuleta County take the necessary actions to put out a Request for Proposal seeking bids for management of Casa. In voting to move forward in finding a new management company, board members, including Wadley, spoke of the economy of scale for an established company to run the facility, versus the board managing the facility itself. Beyond questions involving specific management agencies, other discussion at the meeting centered on Clifford Lucero taking over as the BoCC representative on the ACHA board (which was created by the BoCC in 1987), with Wadley citing Luceroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longtime role on the board and knowledge of Casaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history as the reason for the proposed switch. No change in BoCC representation to the board has been officially made. randi@pagosasun.com

Two men, estimated to be in their 20s, were rescued from Hatcher Lake Saturday night after their boat capsized. According to firefighter Thad McKain with the Pagosa Fire Protection District, the unidentified men swam to an aerator in Hatcher Lake following the capsizing of their boat, where they proceeded to yell for help.

Originally, law enforcement was paged to the incident following calls reporting someone calling out for help, McKain said. Upon arrival at the scene, law enforcement officers spotted the men on the aerator and paged the PFPD, McKain reported. Approximately 15 firefighters responded to the scene at about 8:45 p.m., McKain said, and a boat was deployed with three firefighters to rescue the men from the lake.

Marijuana n Continued from front

Ordinance 788. Two misconceptions Delany wished to dispel were the idea that all medical marijuana establishments are owned and operated by people who used to be illegal drug dealers and that medical marijuana facilities are just a front for people who want to get high. At the beginning of Tuesday’s work session, Aragon said, “This is a work session, so we will not be voting; we will just be putting all of the marbles on the table, so to speak.” He also explained that, normally, town council work sessions are held to allow members of the council to discuss an issue; public comment is generally not permitted. However, in this case Delany, as an expert witness, was given seven minutes to testify. He began by explaining his personal struggles

with alcohol and how that was different from his use of marijuana, described how his business was started and his plans for expansion, then concluded by describing his customers — both locals and the tourists who travel here from out of state specifically because of his business. Delany explained that he didn’t want to open a store in the downtown area, but would like to expand to a location in the uptown area. “If you ever did allow me to open up a store along the corridor, it’s all about location, and I’m all about community sensitivity; I can do it in almost an invisible fashion.” “I haven’t changed my position on this issue in any way, shape or form,” Police Chief William Rockensock began, once Delany finished. “From my perspective, the voters absolutely decided that

they wanted to make the consumption of marijuana for anyone over the age of 21 legal. We did that. We amended our ordinances to allow that to occur. “Where the sticking point occurs is whether or not the voters actually voted to allow us to have retail shops or not, and that’s where I have a difference of opinion from most people. Everyone seems to think that the voters said we must have retail shops, but in my opinion the voters gave us choices. They didn’t say we must have them; they said we have an option.” “This isn’t a debate about whether marijuana is healthy or not,” council member Don Volger said. “As far as I’m concerned, for many it can be very unhealthy — so can alcohol, so can tobacco, so can eating too much, so can not getting enough exercise. There are a lot of

“I think perceptions are extra important and need to be addressed,” Smith said. Smith then proceeded to go through each category and ask those at the meeting if the notes accurately reflected the interviews, and asking what they thought of each. In going through each category, staff and officials present expressed surprise at how many more weaknesses were expressed than strengths, noted the county’s responsibility to not only taxpayers, but to everyone who passes through the county, the need for involvement, the importance of volunteers and more. Surprise was also expressed at the variety of topics listed when each individual was asked to name the county’s top three priorities, with some calling the variety “mind-boggling.” Some of those 29 priorities listed in the 22-page document included, in no particular order: roads, integrity, communications, dependable and sustainable revenue source, jobs, funding for training, compensation, financial stability, growing the economy and internal controls. “You can eat an elephant one bite at a time,” Smith noted, asking staff if any of the priorities were impossible, to which various staff and

officials responded that it would take years, and that some could be tackled in conjunction with others. Smith added that priorities would be changed and adjusted yearly as tasks were completed or if the need to adapt or react surfaced. In another document provided by Smith, each overall category was summarized in four to nine statements. The summary of the county’s overall priorities included: • Vision, strategy and direction. • Teamwork. • Improved communications. • Financial security/stability. • Education, both internal and external. Other discussion included the need to utilize resources available to the county, and that a general sense of fear in the county could, through a process, be replaced with hope and a pride in a county job. “Life’s too darn short to be miserable,” Smith noted. In concluding the two-hour meeting, Smith again spoke of need for inclusion and, in response to questions of, “What now?” told staff to begin taking little steps, commit to the process and act on it. “This is the first step. It’s not the end,” Smith said. randi@pagosasun.com

you requesting of us to be able to proceed? Can you see a way that we can move forward without having to take this to court?” “Yes, and I have provided that means today,” Graham responded. “I would agree with you; this is a very important project. It has been frustrating. I did perceive this pipeline as a very good solution to a difficult problem. Now that we are here, the timeline is closing very rapidly. When Mr. Mayo told me they were ready to go to bid within a month, I was surprised, because in my mind they still had no access.” Graham briefly described some of the things he had wanted to negotiate with Mayo before the final plans for the pipeline were turned in, but since Mayo allegedly never got back to him and it was now too late to change anything, he was instead asking the town to compensate him for his easement by granting free sewer taps for six other properties he owns in town. Other options were considered: • The town could file an eminent domain claim, but there is no guarantee a lawsuit would succeed; the town would have to pay attorney fees, and, in the end, a judge would still require the town to pay fair compensation to the landowner. In addition, a lawsuit could take as much as 120 days, which would throw the project far enough behind schedule that it would lose the federal grant money. • The plans could be redrawn

so that Graham and his neighbors could use lift station 17, like he originally requested, but that would be expensive and time consuming, as well. One concern, voiced by board member Darrel Cotton, was that if the board granted compensation to Graham, then all of the other property owners who had already granted easements, out of a sense of community and civic pride, might reconsider that decision and also demand compensation. However, since all of the other easement agreements had been legally obtained and were already on file, those property owners would be unable to now back out. Another concern, voiced by Mitchem, is that, in the future, especially considering all of the trails the town plans on building from the Riverwalk to the Town-to-Lakes Trail, people might start asking to get paid for granting easements instead of charitably donating them to the community. Greed might win out over civic pride. In the end, these appeals to Graham’s sense of community had no effect. Volger conceded that Graham had the town over a barrel, and the board voted to negotiate the easement with Graham in exchange for the six sewer taps. The board also promised to not begin pipeline construction across Graham’s property until after Aug. 15, due to a planned family reunion. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

Groups n Continued from front

tion about Archuleta County — what it does, what it doesn’t do, what it can do, and what it can’t do prior to the focus groups. And the process is expected to be relatively quick. “I would like to have the whole project completed by the end of June, as far as the focus groups,” Smith said. Focus group answers will be compiled into a document similar to the one presented at the May 9 meeting. Ultimately, the responses, both from county staff and officials and from the focus groups, will inform a strategic plan to be used for prioritization and to drive the county budgeting process. Leading up to the May 9 meeting, Smith held a series of one-hour meetings to discuss perceived strengths, weaknesses, obstacles, needs and priorities with staff and elected officials, compiling the results of those meetings in a handout given to everyone at the meeting. “This is phase one of a multiphase process,” Smith noted, adding, “It has to be a total team effort to address this.” The handout included 22 pages of notes gathered by Smith during the interviews.

review and consider signing?” “If I recall correctly,” Graham answered, “my impression was that Mr. Mayo had to exhibit control of the right-of-way to move forward with federal money applications. Not wanting to hinder the town in any way, I signed and dated it. I felt pressured to provide him something, so I made modifications based on my understanding that this was only to basically secure the funding process and that the actual easement and specifics would be negotiated at a later date.” “It is my understanding,” Volger said, “that we had to have easements, or at least the intent to grant easements, to go ahead and get the funding, and we were able to get that. Now, we are under a pretty specific timeline to keep that funding, and so if any of the folks who have granted easements back out, it puts the district in a very precarious position. I think you understand that. The rest of the property owners are willing to proceed with granting easements to get the project underway. “This has been so frustrating, with the sewer plant that fell through five years ago, and then, finally, we were able to work out an agreement with PAWSD and we got the pipeline that seemed to be the answer to our problems, and now it just scares me to death that we may have something that isn’t going to move forward.

things that are unhealthy. “It’s hard for me, as a career law enforcement officer, to change my thinking about something that has always been illegal. It was very easy when I was in law enforcement to say, ‘No.’ “Now a majority of the people in the state of Colorado, and Archuleta County, said, ‘Why should this be that much different from alcohol?’ It also destroys lives, but there are a lot of responsible people who use alcohol and it doesn’t. They can be functional members of society and use alcohol. I am one of them. I am not a teetotaler. I do not smoke marijuana, and just because it’s legal I don’t see myself ever smoking marijuana, but does that mean other adults should be forced to abide by my decisions if they can do it responsibly? That decision was made in this amendment. “We have to make a decision whether we are going to allow retail sales or not. I’ll make this brief: I think we should. I don’t want to see it on the highway. I don’t want to see a lot of signage. And I don’t want to see more than one or two retail establishments at the most, but I see no reason why we shouldn’t allow it. I think it can be done discreetly and it will benefit this community by avoiding further polarization. “I don’t think a retail establishment is that big of a deal. The state is wrestling with these issues right

now. They are going to give some guidelines, just as they have done for the sale and distribution of alcohol. I don’t think we should have any marijuana clubs; I don’t think we can. The most common way that marijuana is taken into the body is by smoking, and we have state laws that prohibit smoking in public. We’re not going to have a place where people can go and party and smoke dope and get high and have fun. “As far as growing, we are the town. If they want to do something in the county as far as growing or manufacturing, fine. That’s a better place to do it; it’s rural. We’re not rural. “But, I think we can safely allow one retail shop in town with specific restrictions, and we should be able to do that within a reasonable timeframe. I think we can proceed with an ordinance that prohibits clubs, prohibits manufacturing, but as far as a retail shop in town, I have no objection to it.” Volger and council member Tracy Bunning are both former Pagosa Springs police chiefs. “I think there is a large percentage of Colorado residents,” Bunning added, “who didn’t vote for Amendment 64 because they wanted to have legal access to marijuana. Maybe it is just as exlaw enforcement, but I think many people looked at the fact that, for forty years, we’ve been fighting the

war on drugs. “We’ve been spending countless millions and billions of dollars to try to curtail the manufacture, sales and use of illegal substances and all that we have really accomplished is that we have filled up the existing prisons and we have built numerous new prisons, which are full. In my opinion, I don’t think we are really making any progress on that front. “At some point, you have to ask yourself, ‘Can we make this country safer? Can we take the profit out of the illegal drug traffic? Can we prevent the rip-offs that used to frequently result in homicides?’ The answer is ‘Yes, it is a possibility.’ Whether it will be a reality or not, only time will tell.” Most council members argued for scrapping Ordinance 788 until October, when clearer directions will come down from the state. However, council member Darrel Cotton proposed continuing with the second reading of the ordinance and establishing the ban immediately, with the understanding that it can always be repealed later if the council decides to change its mind. Since no decisions could be made in the work session, it remains to be seen whether or not the second reading of the ordinance will appear on the agenda of the next regular town council meeting. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

Education n Continued from front

In making the decision to close, the board considered three primary factors: 1) The loss of revenues from the operation of an alternative high school which was transferred to Pueblo Community College via the Archuleta County School District in 2011. 2) The inability of Pueblo Community College to deliver services, staff support, administrative leadership and routine communication during the 2012-2013 year, along with the lack of any planning or strategy that offer hope for significant improvements in the future. 3) The decreased availability of grant funding in both amounts and sources. Since losing support from the school district, the center has been able to survive thanks to significant support from the Pagosa Springs Town Council, some support from the Archuleta County commissioners in 2013, foundation grants, and the generous contributions of many citizens from the community, including members of the board of trustees. The mission of the center has been to provide services such as English as a second language (ESL) and citizenship training; general equivalency (GED) high school training, testing and diplomas; access to community college degree courses, advising, and

financial aid for the place-bound; tutoring for grade-school students and enrichment programs; and first aid and CPR training and other community education to help local residents strengthen job skills. These services are typically provided through public support in other communities across the state and country because recipients of such services typically are not able to pay for them and because such services add value to the community. While the center has benefitted from public support and charitable contributions for specific services, no single or combined entity has been willing to provide the continuing support essential for predictable revenues for responsible operation. Communities receive the kinds of services they value and are willing to support. The board has reluctantly concluded that these services are not valued enough by the people or the government agencies in Archuleta County to support them at the minimum level required for reasonable quality. The board has requested its executive director, Julie Loar, to study current services to determine which, if any, generate enough revenue to pay their direct costs and enough overhead to offset costs of maintaining a minimal operation until June 2014. Some services, such as the federal grant that supports the direct costs of

GED and English Language Learning cannot be transferred to any other agency and would require a new application, meaning these services would be entirely lost to the community during the coming year if the center cannot offer them. Based on her analysis, the board will decide whether to permanently close the center on Aug. 30 as currently planned or to try to maintain some nominal operation until June 2014. The board will make this decision by its August meeting. The board does not currently see the feasibility under current circumstances of any operation beyond that date. The services offered at the center are unduplicated in the county and provide education that will have to be sought online or in Durango. Programs at the center are robust in the number of students enrolled, but must be offered at a fee structure that does not fully support all program costs. Strong communities engage and educate their residents. National research shows that additional instruction outside the classroom helps engage students in learning and prepares them for high school, and each high school drop out costs tax payers more than $300,000 over a lifetime. Access to adult education strengthens an individual’s ability to gain meaningful employment and intensifies the community work force.

USJHSD to charge interest on overdue medical bills By Melissa Stedman Staff Writer

The Upper San Juan Health Service District (USJHSD) Board of Directors unanimously approved a motion to begin charging an 8-percent interest charge on all overdue medical bills beginning no sooner than June 1, but no later than July 1. The interest will be charged 60 days after discharge for self-pay patients and 30 days after third-party reimbursement, such as Medicaid. The interest charge of 8 percent does not require authorization from the patient. Any amount over 8 percent requires a patient signature. One of the reasons this issue was raised is that hospital officials are finding that this is a practice at most similar facilities. According to CFO Dennis Wilson, the rate will not be raised any time soon. The primary purpose of the interest rate is to get patients to pay outstanding bills before the bills are sent to a collection agency. During the board meeting on March 26, questions were raised regarding the interest rate charge and self-pay patients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess I have an issue with the self-pay patients, because they are the ones that are getting charged full price,â&#x20AC;? board member Joanna Estes explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When an insurance company or someone underinsured pays the deductible, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get charged whatever we charge the self-pay to visit. For instance, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five hundred dollars. The insurance company says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to pay that five hundred dollars, but we will pay two hundred and fifty and your deductible is one hundred of that.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; That is if someone is insured. But a self-pay patient gets charged five hundred dollars, so do we offer anything to patients that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have insurance?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153; We offer a thirty percent prompt-pay discount,â&#x20AC;? Wilson explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and keep in mind we

have a very, very liberal charity policy, which, basically, any family or individual can get a significant discount or charity write-off, which is the better term to use, if they fall under that two hundred and fifty percent federal poverty level. So there are a number of our self-pay patients that are going to fit in to that bucket.â&#x20AC;? According to Wilson, Pagosa Springs Medical Center provided $484,000 in charity care last year. Questions were raised during the board meeting about who would be most affected by the interest rate. According to the board, the plan is designed to motivate clients with outstanding bills to visit and talk with financial counseling personnel at the medical center and make payment arrangements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is there a way of incentivizing further by saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If you are making payments, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll charge you five-percent interest rate rather than eight-percent interest rate?â&#x20AC;? Estes asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all negotiable,â&#x20AC;? Wilson explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From day one we have had a policy that we would work with the community.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dennis, is that clear in the letter that you send with the bill?â&#x20AC;? Estes asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not in our statements currently. We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drafted this letter, so we have to be kind of careful about the kind of language that we use in it,â&#x20AC;? Wilson explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say that I have language for that right now that will answer your question, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that we would want to consider. We want to be careful that we arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t giving the impression that we are just â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;giving away the farm.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the very people that will need to negotiate will not necessarily be savvy enough in their experiences to even bring it up, even talk about it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m concerned with that,â&#x20AC;? one board member said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the same time, I understand that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put a blatant statement

that says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;well just come on in and we will discount fifty percentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to be something like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;if you have issues paying this, please come in and discuss it with us.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think another important thing to say here is that, by the time we are at that point, we will have already had phone conversations with the vast majority of these people, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably more of where we would bring this up.â&#x20AC;? Wilson explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will also have payment plans for self-pay patients, which is another thing that is in effect, so it will be during the course of those conversations that I think we will let them know about payment plans, interests and other alternatives that they have to avoid the interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a tool for you to use. If you chose to negotiate it in a way to make something happen, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine. The whole process is negotiable, particularly for those who just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the resources.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing that we are fighting here is that people are making perfectly rational decisions because they are paying the debts that are costing them a lot of interest,â&#x20AC;? a board member explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are paying their eighteen percent credit cards, or their twenty four percent credit cards because it makes sense. If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t charge the eight percent then we arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting their attention. We want them to continue to be rational and to look at our balance as something to be paid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to make it where, instead of the medical bill being at the bottom of the bills-to-pay stack, that it will be put more equal to the middle.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand incentivizing people with trying to pay accounts receivable, I understand that,â&#x20AC;? Estes explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of people hurting, a lot of people that are self-pay that get kind of screwed by the system because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have insurance.â&#x20AC;?

During the board meeting, questions were raised with regard to implementation and with regard to notifying patients. It was asked if notification will occur at the time that the service is rendered or if it is to be included in the bill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would happen as part of a registration process, so there will be a paragraph in the forms that they sign at registration, which indicates what we have been talking about,â&#x20AC;? Wilson answered. According to Wilson, the purpose of the paragraph concerning the interest rate at registration is to communicate appropriately with the patients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to tell people before we start hitting them with eight percent,â&#x20AC;? Wilson explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will be forewarned.â&#x20AC;? Another concern from the board was how the process was handled on an EMS call or an emergency report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good question, because, for many patients, the nurses do the registration because we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have registration people, so for those weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to develop some form of notification if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not actually done at registration. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to send out a letter within a few days of registration of something like that,â&#x20AC;? Wilson explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d probably work it out to where we would send it out with the first statement.â&#x20AC;? Patients will begin receiving information in July, however, according to Wilson, the first time people will begin receiving notices and interest will be in September, when they receive their statement. The interest rate will not be included in the bill until the patient is notified. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are still trying to figure out how we are going to do this to make sure we are doing it in a fair and equitable way to those involved,â&#x20AC;? Wilson explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is important to know that we will start doing this fairly soon and it will be eight percent.â&#x20AC;? Melissa.Stedman@pagosasun. com

BoCC considers additional medical marijuana outlets By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

The Archuleta County Board of County Commissioners are expected to consider an amended ordinance concerning medical marijuana in early June, potentially opening the door for additional medical marijuana dispensaries to open in Archuleta County. Currently, there is a moratorium on new medical marijuana operations in unincorporated Archuleta County, with that moratorium recently extended to June 18. On May 9, the BoCC held a work session on the topic of medical marijuana, with County Attorney Todd Starr seeking direction from the board in amending the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing medical marijuana ordinance. Also in attendance at the work session for the purpose of discussion was the owner of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sole medical marijuana dispensary, Bill Delany, as well as Jeremy Bonan and Jason Werby, both prospective medical marijuana business owners, Archuleta County Undersheriff Rich Valdez and other members of the public. Starr began the meeting by telling the commissioners that, regarding previously voiced commissioner ideas, the county could not legally limit dispensaries to a specific number or hold a lottery to award licenses to applicants. Instead, Starr suggested the county could restrict the prevalence of medical marijuana businesses through zoning (under the current ordinance, medical marijuana operations are allowed in commercial and industrial zones). The problem with allowing where a business may locate by zone, Starr continued, are streets such as Bastille Drive, which is zoned commercial on one side of the road and residential on the other. Starr also suggested the board could limit what zones the operations would be allowed in, such as by confining them to an industrial zone (essentially limiting the operations to Cloman Industrial Park because of the proximity of other industrial zones to parks). Operations are currently not allowed within a buffer zone around schools and parks. However, the commissioners spoke of setting a smaller buffer zone around the Cloman Community Park, located near Cloman Industrial Park. In beginning discussion on the matter, audience member Johnnie Picket quickly stated that there was no legal reason to treat medical

marijuana differently than liquor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something she later reiterated, calling it â&#x20AC;&#x153;ridiculousâ&#x20AC;? to regulate alcohol and marijuana differently. That point was discussed again during the meeting, with Delany at one point stating there were double penalties attached to medical marijuana, putting it in a different category. Beginning commissioner discussion, Clifford Lucero said his desire was to ensure rules were in place, while Steve Wadley stated he would like for no more than three or four operations to be allowed, causing Starr to reiterate that the only way the county could regulate is through location, not by number. Wadley also suggested raising the cost for an application and license, adding that he believed operations should not abut or be across the street from residential properties. Wadley further added that he did not want to push all medical marijuana businesses into one area, noting that it would not be fair to the businesses or residents seeking to shop at those businesses. Again, Wadley noted the idea of allowing medical marijuana operations in commercial areas, but suggested a limit of three operations, which he was reminded was not legal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pure free market,â&#x20AC;? commissioner Michael Whiting said, stating that the best regulation is the least regulation, and urging his fellow commissioners to be cognizant of the idea that the state is looking at marijuana regulation similar to alcohol. In discussing locations, Lucero said he wanted to locate any facilities far from residential areas, which he said was the BoCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal in approving the existing ordinance. Starr then suggested that the regulations could limit medical marijuana to industrial zoning, but Wadley expressed a concern that limiting operations to Cloman would force new businesses to build a facility, noting that a lot of commercial property is up for rent and adding that congregating the businesses to one area would be, â&#x20AC;&#x153;more bad than good.â&#x20AC;? Lucero also suggested the board consider the real estate market, while Whiting noted that residents living across from commercial zones buy into that neighborhood with the expectation that commercial properties will exist across the street, then noted that he was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;trying to not inject a moral component on a legal endeavor.â&#x20AC;? Further discussion on locations also included keeping facilities away

from children â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something Lucero has previously advocated â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with Valdez noting the need to keep facilities away from schools and areas where children play. In that discussion, the subject of smells from the facility came up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can smell things from across the street,â&#x20AC;? Valdez said. Later in the meeting, Delany noted that, at times, you could smell the grow operation about 500 feet away. Further discussion about children concerned whether or not grow operations (not currently allowed) harm children, with Pickett asking Lucero what evidence he had that it harmed children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re telling me it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t harm children?â&#x20AC;? Lucero asked, noting his years of service on the school board and attending seminars. Lucero said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want children playing where they can smell marijuana. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s make a rational decision.â&#x20AC;? Whiting opined that kids were still more likely to buy the substance from their friends and noted it was not a gateway drug, leaving him to believe the county should find the minimum it could regulate while still protecting the community. Other discussion centered on the safety of the businesses and transportation of the product from grow facilities to a store, with the board members stating that off-site grow operations would again be looked at in terms of recreational marijuana retail sale (Amendment 64 marijuana). Throughout the location discussion, Werby found that the flavor of the conversation was leaning toward the impractical, stating that where the businesses could locate was very limited with the school and park buffer zones and the fact that most commercial property is within town limits, where operations are currently banned. Too, Werby stated that smells could be regulated and the county should welcome the businesses and the progress. Bonan noted that the more the county wanted to regulate where storefronts could be, the more pertinent off-site grow operations become. He also noted the business potential of creating an industry with grow operations that serve other areas. As the meeting progressed, direction from the board was that a buffer zone should be placed around residential zones, with a larger, 1,000-foot buffer zone around parks and schools, and grow operations be allowed only on site. On the topic of application and

license fees, the commissioners suggested raising the costs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; suggesting as high as $10,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for new licenses, which was deemed to be too high during discussion. In the end, a consensus of the commissioners landed on a $3,000 application fee, a $3,000 license fee for new licenses, and a $3,000 renewal fee. Those fees, if approved and put on the fee schedule, would be paid in addition to state fees totaling $7,000. Under the current Archuleta County Fee Schedule, a vendor pays $3,000 for a new license and $2,000 for a renewal, with no separate application fee. In a later interview, Starr said he anticipated bringing recommended amendments to the medical marijuana ordinance forward at the June 4 BoCC meeting. randi@pagosasun.com

Local FBLA chapter receives state awards By Cynthia Toner Special to The SUN

Nineteen Pagosa Springs High School Future Business Leaders of America members traveled to Vail, Colo., on April 20 to attend the three-day FBLA State Leadership Conference where they competed with nearly 3,000 other FBLA students from across the state. Our local FBLA chapter received six separate awards at the conference, including a national qualifier. Miah Pitcher is only the second freshmen in the last 10 years to qualify for the national competition. She placed second in Public Speaking I, which involved prepar-

ing and delivering a live speech in front of a panel of judges. Miah will be representing Pagosa Springs High School at the National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, Calif., this summer. In other competitive events, the team of Isaiah Thompson and Brannon Harbur received eighth place in Business Ethics; Ryan McInnis received eighth place in Impromptu Speaking and chapter president Gabby Pajak placed third in Future Business Leader.

Medical Center offers EMT Refresher course By Joe Bigley Special to The SUN

Pagosa Springs Medical Center’s EMS Education Center will provide an EMT Refresher course in Pagosa Springs starting on June 10. Unique to this course will be the availability of distant learning for students who are in remote locations and want to attend the course, but can’t travel to Pagosa Springs for the 11 classes. Only two of the 11 classes require local attendance — the first and last classes. The program is based on the Colorado approved Department of Transportation’s EMT-Basic Refresher Curriculum. It includes 24 hours of didactic instruction and 16 hours of skills instruction and testing. The course meets the requirements for both the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) national recertification and the state of Colorado’s recertification requirements allowing the student to continue to provide professional EMT services. Students who complete the course will receive continuing education (CE) credits that can be used towards both NREMT and Colorado’s core requirements and elective hours. While students are always encouraged to be in the classroom in person, it is not always possible. As a result, with a web cam, Internet connection and a microphone, all students will be able to attend lectures utilizing a completely integrated synchronous classroom environment when they are not able to attend the lecture in person. Students attending remotely will be able to participate in the class as if they were in the classroom, including being able to ask questions and participate in group discussions for a total learning experience. The course will start on Monday, June 10, and will be held Monday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 10 p.m., through July 20, with a break (no classes) for the July 4 week. The last class will be held on Saturday, July 20, from 9 a.m. until complete.

The last class includes a Neonate, Trauma and Airway Lab, as well as a CPR skills checkoff for those students who need it. The cost of the EMT Refresher is $360 per student. Additionally, for those students who need only a few CEs and don’t need the entire refresher, there is a solution: they can attend only the courses that are needed to round out their training for $50 per lecture and receive continuing education credits for each lecture attended. The schedule of topics: • Introduction Patient Assessment, Monday, June 10, 6-10 p.m. Class attendance required, • Airway, Thursday, June 13, 6-10 p.m. Live or remote. • Shock, Monday, June 17, 6-10 p.m. Live or remote. • Cardiology, Thursday, June 20, 6-10 p.m. Live or remote. • Respiratory, Neurological, Monday, June 24, 6-10 p.m. Live or remote. • Endocrine, Head and Spine Trauma, Thursday, June 27, 6-10 p.m. Live or remote. • Chest and Abdominal Trauma, Burns and Environment Injuries, Monday, July 8, 6-10 p.m. Live or remote. • OB/GYN, Neonate, Thursday, July 11, 6-10 p.m. Live or remote. • Pediatric, Monday, July 15, 6-10 p.m. Live or remote. • CPR, Thursday, July 18, 6-10 p.m. Live or remote. • Neonate Lab, Trauma Lab, Airway Lab, CPR Skills Assessment, Saturday, July 20, 9 a.m. until finished. Class attendance required. Classes will be held at the Pagosa Springs EMS training center located at 189 N. Pagosa Blvd., in Pagosa Springs. The course has been designed to meet or exceed the National Standard Curriculum for EMT Basics, as developed by the United States Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The last day to register for the course is June 3, 2013. In addition to being able to recertify as an EMT, each successful student will also receive an

American Heart Association (AHA) Basic Life Support for Healthcare Provider (CPR/AED) certificate. The PSMC EMS Education Center offers quality training to increase the knowledge necessary for managing emergency medical situations. Courses are taught by qualified, street experienced emergency medical providers. The Education Center coordinates a wide range of courses, including CPR and First Aid for the layperson, entry level EMR and Basic Emergency Medical Technician courses, advanced level training for the Advanced Life Support provider, and specialty seminars taught by industry leading experts in emergency medicine.

Having the only nationally accredited Medical Coding certificate program in Colorado is one thing. But now that Pueblo Community College has made it available entirely online, the program has become accessible to students throughout the state. PCC is now enrolling students in this summer’s prerequisite classes that they need to become part of the Medical Coding program’s new rotation class in the 2013 fall semester. The prerequisite classes offered this summer are HPR 178 Medical Terminology, BIO 106 Anatomy and Physiology and CIS 118 Basic Computer Skills. They are worth 10 credits, after which the remaining 32 credits in the certificate program can be taken, capped by the internship. All of the courses in the certificate program are now available online with the exception of an internship. The summer semester will begin May 28. Offering all classes online has removed location barriers for students, and their internships also can be taken near a student’s home residence. PCC has the only nationally accredited Medical Coding program in Colorado (by the American Health Information Management Association or AHIMA).

The program can be completed in one year for those who attend full time. Students who earn the Medical Coding certificate can take the Certified Coding Associate (CCA) examination that is given by AHIMA. Medical coding is the transformation of narrative descriptions of medical diagnoses and procedures into universal medical code numbers that illustrate the procedures and services performed by medical professionals. Codes are used for insurance reimbursement, public health statistics, determining dollars spent on medical research and many other medical needs. “PCC’s program provides training for students looking for employment in the very near future and in a field that is crying for credentialed employees,” pointed out Ginny Sullivan, faculty member and director of the program. Medical coders are also part of the electronic health records profession that is considered a growth industry, with the U.S. Department of Labor forecasting the number of jobs to increase 21 percent through 2020. Medical coding also can be an excellent stepping stone into higher-level careers in health information. For more information, contact Sullivan at (719) 549-3317 or Virginia.Sullivan@pueblocc.edu.

DAR scholarship awarded to Pagosa student By Lynn Constan Special to The SUN

The Colorado State Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution announced the award of the Virginia Leyda Roberts Nursing Scholarship to Haleigh Zenz of Pagosa Springs during the State Conference in April. The scholarship fund was established in the early 1990s in memory of Mrs. Roberts by her family. Applicants for the scholarship must be United State citizens, residents of Colorado, be accepted into a nursing school program in the U.S., and be sponsored by a DAR chapter. Haleigh was sponsored by the Sarah Platt Decker Chapter of Durango. The award is based on academic excellence, commitment to field of study and financial need. Colorado Scholarship Chair Linda

Remley said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Haleighâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essay describing her passion for nursing really made her stand out among the other applicants.â&#x20AC;? Haleigh is a senior at Pagosa Springs High School and plans to attend University of Colorado at Colorado Springs in the fall. The Virginia Leyda Roberts Scholarship is one of three DAR scholarships awarded in Colorado. The organization also awards a scholarship to a graduating high school senior who will pursue a major in history or political science and a scholarship to an adult whose education was interrupted for at least one year and is returning to a college or university. There are numerous scholarships available at the national level as well. The Sarah Platt Decker chapter, organized in 1917, is one of 42 chapters in Colorado. Meetings are held once a month from

August through May in Durango. The 90-member chapter includes women from Durango, Pagosa Springs, Chromo, Ignacio and Bayfield. The DAR promotes historic preservation, education and patriotism. Membership is open to any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a Patriot of the American Revolution. Members of the chapter are willing to provide guidance and assistance in the preparation of your application. For information on membership or the DAR scholarship programs, contact Lynn Constan at 264-5451 or regent.spd@hotmail.com.

Kaylee Fitzwater is the recipient of the Michael Maestas Memorial Scholarship this year. This scholarship was established in memory of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mikieâ&#x20AC;? Maestas, who was killed in a car accident in 2006. Mikie was a young man with a passion for the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and snowboarding, as well as the sport of rodeo. Wrestling was also a very important part of his life; he wrestled from peewee wrestling all the way through his high school varsity years. Kaylee is planning on attending Colorado Mountain College, in Glenwood Springs, and plans to graduate with a veterinary technician degree. Her many years participating in 4-H and rodeo, as well as the time she has spent volunteering at a local veterinary clinic, show that she clearly has a passion for working with animals. She is currently the president of the inaugural FFA chapter that began at Pagosa Springs High School this year and credits 4-H as having a lot to do with improving her public speaking skills, as well as teaching her the responsibilities of owning an animal and giving it the proper care. Congratulations to Kaylee Fitzwater.

Healthy forests and healthy communities tour By Aaron Kimple Special to The SUN

San Juan Headwaters Forest Health Partnership, Firewise Communities of Southwest Colorado, Pagosa Ranger District/San Juan National Forest, Certified Family Forest and Mountain Studies Institute (MSI) are pleased to offer a guided tour of local forests on May 22. This is a free event. Private landowners with trees, people who love our forests, educators, environmental groups, researchers and public land managers interested in managing for healthy sustainable forests and communities are all encouraged to attend. Lunch will be provided. Anyone interested in attending is encouraged to R.S.V.P. at www.mountainstudies.org. Attendees should meet at Coyote Hill parking lot (at the end of pavement of Piedra Road/County Road 600), about seven miles northwest of Pagosa Springs, at 8:30 a.m. The tour will leave the parking lot promptly at 9 a.m. and should be completed by 4 p.m. What is a healthy forest? We all have a mental picture that jumps to mind when we hear the expression “healthy forest,” but where does that image come from? For the most part, healthy forests represent the forests and parks that we grew up with. “Our vision of forests may be constructed around forests that have been in transition or managed outside of natural cycles,” stated Steve Hartvigsen of the San Juan National Forest. “Learning about what makes a forest healthy can help us to alter those perceptions.”

Forest management “How we manage forests varies from parcel to parcel and can even vary within parcels,” according to Scott Wagner of the San Juan National Forest. You have to evaluate the types of species within an area, whether or not they are affected by bugs or disease, what the understory looks like, the overall character of the stand, and then

you have to consider the goals for management. There are a lot of variables that impact management decisions.

By Boyd Anderson Special to The SUN

Forests and communities The Forest Health Company of Pagosa Springs is experimenting with how to implement management strategies so that they not only make forests healthier, but make the communities around the forest more viable. They are working on ways to remove unwanted trees from thinning areas and using the residue from those trees to help Pagosa. Trees are removed from thinning areas and chipped with plans to convert the chips into energy.

What can you do? “We have all chosen to live in areas that are susceptible to wildfire.” said Bill Trimarco of Archuleta Firewise. “We can manage our personal property to reduce risk of damage or loss.” The healthy forests tour will include examples of management decisions that private land owners and members of Certified Family Forests have implemented to make their property healthier and safer.

More than just trees According to Aaron Kimple of Mountain Studies Institute (MSI), a healthy forest has impact beyond the trees. “The San Juan Headwaters Forest Health Partnership, during discussions about their mission, realized that forest health issues are closely tied to water quality and watershed health.” The goals of the healthy forests driving tour are to 1) Observe healthy and unhealthy forests; 2) Explore local watersheds and water issues; 3) Experience tools for management. Learn more and R.S.V.P. at www. mountainstudies.org. You can also contact Aaron Kimple at akimple@ mountainstudies.org or (970) 3826908.

While a team of residents worked last weekend to clean the grounds at Hilltop Cemetery, wildlife strolled the area (it is their back yard, after all), taking in the scene and enjoying warmer spring weather. The cleanup effort included 4-H members and local veterans.

Fire risk for homes on the edge of wildlands U.S. Forest Service researchers recently found that about 90 percent of fuel reduction treatments on national forests were effective in reducing the intensity of wildfire while also allowing for better wildfire control. The report, “Wildfire, Wildlands, and People: Understanding and Preparing for Wildfire in the Wildland-Urban Interface,” synthesizes the latest research and provides examples of what communities in the wildland-urban interface can do to reduce their risk by becoming, “fire adapted.” Aimed at community planners, the report also underscores the important roles that homeowners and local, state and federal governments play in reducing risk and describes available tools and resources. “The Wildfire, Wildlands and People report reminds us that people can and should take steps to protect their homes from wildfires,” said U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell. “Communities with robust wildfire prevention programs are likely to have fewer human-caused wildfires. In addition, fire intensity is dramatically reduced in areas where restoration work has occurred.” Between 2006 and 2011, some 600 assessments were completed

Pagosa Ranger District wins award By Melissa Stedman Staff Writer

On April 9, the Pagosa Springs Ranger District was named United States Forest Service Rocky Mountain Regional District of the Year for outstanding efforts in 2012. According to the Regional Foresters Honor Award Recognition, the District of the Year award is, “For the District who demonstrates leadership, teamwork, community connection, responsiveness to challenges, innovation, creativity, workforce vitality and morale, and resource stewardship.” Along with the award, the district also received a hand-crafted Leopold Bench, made from bark beetle-killed wood by craftsman Davil Ball. Aldo Leopold was an author, an American naturalist and a longtime Forest Service employee. The bench symbolizes his ideals and commitment to living simply and lightly on the land. “This is probably one of the most sought after awards for the Forest Service in the region, because all districts want to become District of the Year, that’s a pretty high achievement and notoriety” said Pagosa District Wildlife Biolon See Award A13

on wildfires that burned into areas where restoration work had taken place. In most of these cases, fire intensity was reduced dramatically in treated areas. Residents can reduce excess vegetation within and around a community to reduce the intensity and growth of future fires and create a relatively safe place for firefighters to work to contain a wildfire, should one occur. From 2001-2011, an average of 85 percent of wildfires in the U.S. were human caused. The two areas with the highest percentage of wildfires caused by people are the East (99 percent) and the South (96 percent). The report is part of the Forests on the Edge project, which seeks to identify areas across the country where timber, wildlife habitat and water quality might be affected on private forests by factors such as development, fire, insect pests and diseases. The project also seeks to understand where increases in housing density on lands adjacent to national forests and grasslands might affect recreation, wildlife, water resources and other important public benefits. The mission of the Forest Service is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the nation’s forests and grasslands to meet

the needs of present and future generations. The agency manages 193 million acres of public land, provides assistance to state and private landowners, and maintains the largest forestry research organization in the world. Forest Service lands contribute more than $13 billion to the economy each year through visitor spending alone. Those same lands provide 20 percent of the nation’s clean water supply, a value estimated at $7.2 billion per year. The agency also has either a direct or indirect role in stewardship of about 80 percent of the 850 million forested acres within the U.S., of which 100 mil-

lion acres are urban forests where most Americans live. USDA has made a concerted effort to deliver results for the American people, even as USDA implements sequestration — the across-theboard budget reductions mandated under terms of the Budget Control Act. USDA has already undertaken historic efforts since 2009 to save more than $828 million in taxpayer funds through targeted, commonsense budget reductions. These reductions have put USDA in a better position to carry out its mission, while implementing sequester budget reductions in a fair manner that causes as little disruption as possible.

2012 all-time record for boating safety The U.S. Coast Guard released its 2012 Recreational Boating Statistics Monday, revealing that boating fatalities that year totaled 651, the lowest number of boating fatalities on record. From 2011 to 2012, deaths in boating-related accidents decreased from 758 to 651, a 14.1 percent decrease; injuries decreased from 3,081 to 3,000, a 2.6 percent reduction; and the total reported recreational boating accidents decreased from 4,588 to 4,515, a 1.6 percent decrease. The fatality rate for 2012 of 5.4 deaths per 100,000 registered recreational vessels reflected a 12.9 percent decrease from the previous yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rate of 6.2 deaths per 100,000 registered recreational vessels. Property damage totaled approximately $38 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very pleased that casualties are lower, and thank our partners for their hard work over the past year,â&#x20AC;? said Capt. Paul Thomas, director of Inspections and Compliance at U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will continue to stress the importance of life jacket wear, boating education courses and sober boating.â&#x20AC;? The report states alcohol use was the leading

contributing factor in fatal boating accidents; it was listed as the leading factor in 1:7 percent of the deaths. Operator inattention, operator inexperience, improper lookout, machinery failure and excessive speed ranked as the top five primary contributing factors in accidents. Almost 71 percent of all fatal boating accident victims drowned, with 84 percent of those victims not reported as wearing a life jacket. Approximately 14 percent of deaths occurred on vessels where the operator had received boating safety instruction. The most common types of vessels involved in reported accidents were open motorboats, personal watercraft and cabin motorboats. The Coast Guard reminds all boaters to boat responsibly while on the water: wear a life jacket, take a boating safety course, get a free vessel safety check and avoid alcohol consumption.

National Learn to Fly Day By Anne Kautzky Special to The SUN

Whether it has been a childhood fantasy, or a more recent dream, learning to fly and becoming a pilot has crossed most peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minds at one point in their lifetime. Most people will come up with all kinds of ideas why they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s look at ... why not? When a plane passes overhead, do you look up and wish you could be up there, too? Do you fantasize of escaping the two-dimensional world and discovering a different world with new perspectives, explore new places and experience a feeling of freedom and accomplishment? All this is possible with a Private Pilotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Certificate. You can experience the freedom that pilots experience as they travel the limitless sky. The only limitations are the ones you put on yourself. Each year, thousands of pilots take to the skies and when asked why, most say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because flying is funâ&#x20AC;? and, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It provides a reliable and faster way to get to a destination.â&#x20AC;? More and more people are discovering that flying is a fast, efficient and safe way of travel, opening up a whole new world of opportunities. For both business and personal travel, this is a means of going to the destinations you want, rather than where the airlines will take you and going there when you want to go, rather than on the airlineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule. Who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use more flexibility and productivity in their transportation needs? What does it take to become a private pilot? Desire. Desire is the most important element in successfully learning to fly. Flying is one of the most challenging activities youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ever experience, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes it so rewarding. Once you have made the commitment to invest your time and energy in learning to fly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to take the next step. There are three basic requirements to get your Private Pilot Certificate: 1. Age. There is no age limit to when you can start to learn to fly or a maximum age limit when you have to quit. As long as an instructor is with a student, he or she can start taking flying lessons as soon as they can maneuver the controls. (It would be helpful if you can see over the panel.) Some people have the mistaken belief that the younger you are, the better. Those of us who teach flying would argue that, while it is true some young students may have quicker reflexes, what really counts in aviation are decision-making skills â&#x20AC;&#x201D; skills that are acquired through experience. Older students have much more life experience to draw from. The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) regulations have set a minimum of 16 years of age to solo

(flying by yourself without an instructor) and 17 years old to apply for a Private Pilot Certificate. 2. Health. Prior to soloing the aircraft, you are required to pass a medical exam administered by an FAA flight physician. This document becomes your Student Pilot Certificate and is required to be with you anytime you solo the aircraft. It is highly recommended that once you have decided to learn to fly, you should be sure you qualify by having this flight physical completed. Once you have your Private Pilot Certificate, this exam is required on a routine basis to ensure the pilot does not have any medical problems that would interfere with their ability to fly safely. 3. Finally, you must be able to read, speak and understand English. On average, a person usually receives their Private Pilot Certificate in 55-60 hours. This includes a minimum of 20 hours with a certified flight instructor and 10 hours of flying by yourself (solo). Training not only includes the basic maneuvers and procedures to handling and flying the aircraft, but also night flying, instrument flying (flying solely by the aircraft instruments) and cross-country flying. You must also pass your Private Pilot Ground School Knowledge Test (written test) with a score of 70 percent or better. Later this fall, a Private Pilot Ground School will be offered through the Pagosa Springs Venturing Crew for anyone interested in studying for this written test. More information will be available in the near future. If you are a motivated person and are able to fly at least three times a week, you can get through the course and receive your Private Pilot Certificate in about three to four months. For most people these days, this is not realistic. Remember, it is your time and money involved, so fly as much as possible to prevent skill loss, repeat lessons, and bad weather, all will interfere with your flight training. For most people, it takes about one to two years to reach their goal. Due to insurance liability costs, most airport FBOs (Fixed Based Operators) have discontinued flight training and aircraft rental. The majority of flight schools are located at larger cities and may be a long distance commute from your home to their facility. Pagosa Springs is fortunate to have San Juan Flyers club located at Stevens Field. San Juan Flyers was established in 1998 to service the aviation community by providing a low-cost alternative to flying and aircraft availability. On Saturday, May 18, San Juan Flyers will host a booth at the annual car show, in downtown Pagosa Springs on Lewis Street from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. If you have the passion to fly, members will be happy to answer all your questions about becoming a member of San Juan Flyers, getting your certificate or getting back into flying if you already have your certificate.

gist Anthony Garcia. According to Forest Service officials, the accomplishments and meritorious efforts that led to the honorary award are as follows: â&#x20AC;˘ Providing support leading to the designation of this regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first national monument, Chimney Rock National Monument. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Chimney Rock National Monument was certainly one of the biggest accomplishments, and that involved a whole bunch of coordination with Native American tribes, and just a lot of coordination within the community. The county commissioners are heavily involved, the mayor, Ross Aragon, as well as some national dignitaries, the department of interior secretary, Salazar, and we had the secretary for the forest service. There was national attention given to this site that all went into designation of Chimney Rock as a national monument. So, it was a pretty big thing,â&#x20AC;? said Garcia. â&#x20AC;˘ Community outreach with 25 local Native American tribes, helping coordinate meetings and events, as well as hosting dignitaries leading up to and after the designation of Chimney Rock National Monument. â&#x20AC;˘ A long-term stewardship contract that sets a national example for fuel reduction, renewable energy and forest mitigation and restoration. According to the Pagosa Ranger District, this contract will remove up to 45,000 tons of hazardous fuels from the San Juan National Forest each year. The hazardous fuels removed will feed a power plant with the ability to generate up to a third of the electrical power needs of Pagosa Springs, as well as offering more local employment

opportunities. â&#x20AC;˘ The mitigation and management of the Little Sand Fire, the largest wildfire to occur in the district, which burned almost 25,000 acres of the San Juan National Forest. Firefighters were recognized for their efforts in mitigation, their safety record, the low cost relative to size of the fire, the extent of community involvement, and the restoration of thousands of acres of ponderosa pine and mixed conifer forests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things that I have noticed is the staff here is very, very knowledgable, very experienced, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how people can pull together to really see things through,â&#x20AC;? Garcia said. The Rocky Mountain Regional District comprises parts of Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, Kansas and Nebraska. Within this regional district there are ten forests and one grassland. The region comprises 53 districts. The San Juan National Forest is broken into three districts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out of the fifty-three ranger districts, we were the lucky recipient of the award, so that just gives you a sense of how big the competition is,â&#x20AC;? Garcia explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody in the Ranger District is very honored,â&#x20AC;? District Ranger Kevin Khung said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m lucky to be the district ranger. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m lucky because I work with great people. We are lucky because we work with great partners who help manage our lands. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m honored for Archuleta County. Our partners have helped open up dialogue and have willingness to get things done. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be successful without our partners and local community.â&#x20AC;?

Guidelines and recommendations for emergency care in non-VA facilities are summarized as follows. A medical emergency is when you have an injury or illness that is so severe that without immediate treatment, the injury or illness threatens your health or life. In your best judgment, if you believe your health or life is in danger, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. The nearest VA Medical Center must be notified as soon as possible, within 72 hours, so you as the veteran are better aware of services the VA may limit payment for. You, your family, friends or hospital staff may make this notification. Provide the VA with information about your emergency event and services being provided to you. Ask the VA for guidance on how they will consider reimbursing these emergency charges on your behalf, so you can plan accordingly. The veteran bears the ultimate responsibility of VA notification. If the doctor wants to admit you into the hospital because the admission is an emergency, the veteran is still required to notify the VA. If a VA bed is available, and the veteran can be safely transferred, the veteran must move to the VA Hospital. Refusal will result in VA not paying for any further care. Note: If the veteran leaves the emergency room prior to be-

ing treated by a physician, the VA may not consider claims for that emergency event, and the veteran may be liable for some or all resulting ambulance and emergency room charges, regardless of veteran eligibility. Payment by the VA depends on VA eligibility. The VA may pay all, some or none of the charges, based on the veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service-connected conditions, or non service-connected conditions. The veteran may also have co-pays based on VA enrollment. Sometimes the extent of healthcare services reimbursable by the VA is limited by federal law. A veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enrollment in the VA HealthCare System may affect eligibility for emergency care at VAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expense. The VAMC Albuquerque, N.M. emergency notification number is (800) 465-8262, Ext. 5739.

Reminder I will be out of the office May 19-24 for training in Denver. I will be available by cell phone. Call and leave a message so I can call back during breaks in the training.

Sports TRACK

Lady Pirates win IML track title, state meet starts today By Melissa Stedman Staff Writer

The Pirate track team competed at the Intermountain League Meet Saturday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; their final competition before the Colorado state meet. According to coach Scott White, the girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team won the league title â&#x20AC;&#x153;convincingly,â&#x20AC;? with a final score of 118. Bayfield followed in second with a score of 90, with Alamosa finishing third with 75 points. Freshman Madie Lewis came out strong, placing first in the 200-meter dash with a time of 28.31 seconds. She also placed first in the 400 with a time of 60.86. Junior Emily Bryant placed second in both the 1,600-meter run, at 5:31.44, and the 3,200, with a time of 12:21.76. Olivia Reinhardt finished fourth in the 1,600 with a time of 5:54.38. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a kid that played a whole season of soccer, but she was a cross country kid,â&#x20AC;? White said of Reinhardt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew she was a good runner and after the soccer season was over, we asked her if she wanted to come run. At the Terry Alley meet she got second in the mile and then we had a kid that was sick in the four-by-eight so we put her in as an alternate and she ran a third-best time. She has really earned her position to state, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cool, because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a varsity letterman twice in one season. One is for soccer and the other one is for track.â&#x20AC;? According to White, Toni Stoll and Gabby Pajak, â&#x20AC;&#x153;just dominated.â&#x20AC;? Pajak placed first in the 100 hurdles with a time of 15.49, with Stoll following close behind in second, with a time of 16.10. The duo also placed first and second in the 300 hurdles, with Pajak taking first with a time of 46.58 and Stoll in second with a time of 47.23. Pajak placed first in the long jump with a distance of 17 feet, 1.75 inches. Stoll placed second in long jump

at 16-11.5. In the triple jump, Stoll took first with a distance of 37-03.25, with Pajak close behind, in second at 36-03.75. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those girls are just so funny, because Toni and Gabby do everything together,â&#x20AC;? White explained. The Pirate girls placed first in the 4x200 relay. Tayler Lee-Hammer, Payton Shahan, Lewis and Taylor Strohecker worked together to finish with a final time of 1:50.94. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was really an awesome race because all year long weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been trying to get that one settled and in the last three weeks Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to get this team, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to get this team.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? White said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had lost to Centauri and we hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen Alamosa and so I knew those were going to be really close to each other, but we just blew them away. We won convincingly. It was a really close race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are performing just exactly like we thought. We gambled a little bit. We could have easily won the four by eight hundred, but we rested some kids to get them ready for state.â&#x20AC;? Strohecker hit her reigning state championship mark in high jump with a leap of 5-4. According to White, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back to exactly where she was last year at this point.â&#x20AC;? Sophomore Morgan Schaaf placed fourth in shot put, throwing a personal best of 31-07.25. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew she could do it,â&#x20AC;? White explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been throwing around twenty-eight to twentynine all year and, all the sudden, she throws a high thirty-one.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girls did absolutely wonderful,â&#x20AC;? White said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are loose and ready to go and I think that the girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team has a really, really good chance of cracking the top three this year at state. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my prediction. If everybody performs the way we know they can, if they stay true to our predictions and what we know they can do, we are hoping for the top three. People

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we want. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just really, really excited for the girls. Last year, we had three girls who scored points and we were fifth in the state of Colorado, and this year we have double that of kids that are in a scoring position.

According to White, it was a close relay, with the top three final teams being Alamosa, Bayfield and Pagosa Springs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were missing two very key kids and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure if that would have put us in first or not,â&#x20AC;? White explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bayfield, Alamosa and Pagosa are all real competitive teams. I was real proud of the boys.â&#x20AC;?

Improvements, expansion at PLPOA rec center to be discussed By Penny Kipley Special to The SUN

An open meeting will be held at the Pagosa Lakes Recreation Center during which those in attendance will discuss future plans for possible expansion/improvements at the center. This meeting will be held May 22, at 5:30 p.m., and will take place in the aerobics room of the center, which is located at 45 Eagles Loft Circle. An architect will be present to answer questions and discuss options. The recreation center is now more than 25 years old; it has served its members well, and the success of this community asset has helped keep assessments low for all property owners by operating at a net profit. Over the last number of years, part of the annual assessment has been set aside in a capital improve-

ment fund dedicated to enhancing and improving the facility. Elements of the heating and cooling system are past or approaching the end of their useful life. Rather than just replacing these elements, staff is looking to upgrade the facility so it becomes more energy efficient, utilizing the latest technology. This is a perfect opportunity to examine ways to improve and expand the facility, enhance the experience, grow the membership and increase the revenue stream to serve all property owners, not just those who are rec center members. The money in the capital improvement fund has been collected exclusively for this purpose. There will be no request for additional funding in a proposal, and it will not affect owner assessments or rec center membership fees. Attend the meeting on May 22 and provide input regarding this important topic.

ness. The kid is just so competitive. Not many kids are going to go out there and throw when they had a broken foot.â&#x20AC;? According to White, six boys qualified for the state meet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A kind of neat thing about the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team is that they qualified for the state four-by-two, four-byfour and the four-by-eight. I think it shows the kind of team that we are,â&#x20AC;? White said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids love to run the sprints, they are easy. But when you start looking at kids qualifying in the four and the eight, Emily Bryant is qualified in the mile and the two mile, we really take a lot of pride in that our kids are running the mid-distance and the distance runs. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just become a part of our tradition at Pagosa to run those four-by-fours and those four-byeights and to have kids in the mile and the two mile. I guess itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a philosophy that one hundreds and two hundreds are kind of hard to come by with that God-given talent, but you can teach a kid to run a great four and a great eight and a great

mile. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just excited. They are ready to go.

In this archery program, we try to instill sportsmanship, honesty and a sense of accomplishment in young participants. It is a sport where athletic abilities arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a part of the equation and everyone is equal. We are about competing, but it is not about winning or losing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about doing your best and trying to improve on the skills you have learned. When a child puts a bow in their hand, it empowers them and with that comes responsibility which, in turn, creates responsible young people. Qigong: This is one of the oldest known health systems, dating from 700 BC. Lynnis Steinert is a Tai Chi master and has been teaching Qigong and Tai Chi for 14 years. She started studying Tai Chi and Qigong 20 years ago with several teachers and masters of this ancient Chinese exercise. The purpose of Qigong is to maintain and improve health, improve strength and balance and encourage stillness in both mind and body. The goal in this class is to open and stretch every joint and muscle group in the body. The exercise opens the energy pathways to facilitate good health. The exercises are gentle, but over time have a positive effect on the body. Please stop by the center on Mondays to join in on this program. Call the center for more information.

Vaccinate animals, including horses, for rabies Extension staff

A horse near Peetz, Colo., has been diagnosed as being positive for rabies by CSU Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory. The horse had been exhibiting neurological clinical signs, the attending veterinarian suspected rabies, euthanized the horse, and submitted samples for testing. There has been a significant increase in the incidence of rabies over the last five years in Colorado. This rabies-positive equine case points out the need to consider rabies as a possible etiology in all neurological cases. The predominant terrestrial animal which acts as a vector for rabies is the skunk, but other wildlife species that can carry and transmit the rabies virus are bats, raccoons and foxes. There are many excellent rabies resources and rabid animal data on the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s webpage at www.colorado. gov/cdphe/rabies. Colorado Department of Agriculture Field Veterinarian Dr. Ken Newens stresses to veterinarians, “Using personal protection during the physical exam of horses is really important, especially around the mouth. With EHV-1 and rabies fairly common now, and with drought conditions making poisonous plant ingestion more likely down the road, keep a wide differential list when called to any neuro case in any species, but protect yourselves as if every case was rabies. Initially rabid horses can exhibit clinical signs of colic ... so an open mind and good client communication is important on the initial exam.”

This recent case of rabies in a horse highlights the importance to inform and recommend that owners not only vaccinate their dogs and cats, but also other animals that could be exposed to wildlife that carry and transmit the rabies virus. This includes horses, small ruminants, llamas, alpacas, petting zoo animals and possibly other valuable livestock. Many rabies cases that involve livestock result in numerous people having to take post exposure prophylaxis; this is also true in this latest rabies-positive horse. Considering the current incidence of wildlife rabies, the lethal outcome of the disease, and the cost and liability when people have been exposed to a possibly rabid animal, the benefits of vaccinating animals for rabies certainly outweigh other potential reasons for not vaccinating for rabies. The Compendium of Animal Rabies Prevention and Control 2011 recommends that “All horses should be vaccinated against rabies. Livestock, including species for which licensed vaccines are not available, that have frequent contact with humans (e.g., in petting zoos, fairs and other public exhibitions) should be vaccinated against rabies. Consideration should also be given to vaccinating livestock that are particularly valuable.” The Compendium also has a listing of approved vaccines for the different species and a recommended vaccination schedule, available at www.nasphv.org/ Documents/RabiesCompendium. pdf. For those species of animals in which there are no licensed vaccines, consult with practicing

With the warmer temperatures comes a rising river, making it a perfect playground for kayakers and rafters. Last week, several kayakers hit the river for a sunset session on the waves, testing out the newly-installed water features completed over the winter.

Grammy performance. What a great show we were treated to at the high school last Tuesday night. Five-time Grammy award winner Victor Wooten was phenomenal â&#x20AC;Ś and so humble to accompany the high school students with their amazing original songs. Thanks to Bob Hemmenger for heading up the Americana Project and bringing such great talent to our town. George and Julie Brown

Thanks to Jim Stone, owner of the Buffalo Inn. During this last weekend, May 10, 11 and 12, he offered his place so people could come and go as they raised money first for the veterans who help other veterans in their time of need, and then a fund-raiser for Dolly Martin, who is fighting cancer for the third time. It has been a privilege enjoying music and having a good time. We are fortunate to have such a good man helping so many of us. Cindy Gustafson

What would you do? If you were in a position to save a life, but by doing so, you risked your own and the lives of your family? Could you live with yourself if you did nothing? If you made the choice not to help?

What would you do? This is the central theme in Thingamajig Theatre Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hidden: Stories from the Dutch Resistance,â&#x20AC;? playing at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts through May 26. Set against the backdrop of the burgeoning occupation of the Netherlands by Nazi Germany,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hiddenâ&#x20AC;? explores seven intersecting lives, inspired by true stories of rescuers and hidden children. The voices of the oppressed, the oppressors, and the quiet heroes come together to share their bold stories of defiance in this eloquent play celebrating hope and humanity. n See Hidden on next page

Della Mae and the Matt Flinner Trio to perform at festival By Crista Munro Special to The PREVIEW

FolkWest’s festival season will kick off in three short weeks with the sixth annual Pagosa Folk ‘N Bluegrass Festival, taking place June 7-9 on Reservoir Hill. Festivalgoers will have the opportunity to see and hear more than 20 live performances from 16 different bands on the main stage and late night stage

over the course of the three-day event. This year’s phenomenal lineup represents a variety of musical styles and genres — from amazingly tight bluegrass to what could be classified as new acoustic classical. The lineup includes The Band of Heathens, The Duhks, The Iguanas, The Defibulators, The Black Lillies, The Warren Hood Band, Taarka, Front Country, The Haunted Windchimes, Paper Bird, Finnders and n See Festival on next page

Pamela Chabora as Miriam, the play’s narrator, leads an exceptional ensemble cast through memories of her involvement in the Dutch Resistance during World War II. Throughout the performance, the cast of seven tell their various stories, each compelling, and some heartbreaking, while others are full of hope. “We all expected audiences to be moved by this piece, but the responses have been beyond my initial expectations,” says Laura Moore, director and ensemble member in “Hidden.” On Thursday, before our opening night, the

high school presented an advanced student art show at the center and roughly 40 kids stayed for the final dress of ‘Hidden.’ The chorus of sniffles began about 20 seconds before the close of the play. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house at curtain call.” Wade P. Wood, visiting from Denver, who plays the adventurous Piet in “Hidden,” added, “It was so nice to see these students take an interest in a historical event that is removed from them by generations. It’s an important piece and I’m relieved to see that today’s kids still take an interest in my father’s generation and the sacrifices they

made.” Two weekends remain for this powerful and heartwarming drama. Don’t miss it. Thingamajig Theatre’s “Hidden: Stories from the Dutch Resistance,” by Christopher Willard and Jamie Bruss, directed by Laura Moore; features Pamela Chabora, Bonnie Hite, Laura Moore, Hayley Hudson, Wade P. Wood, Kenneth Breece and Tim Moore. The show continues May 17-26, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. For tickets and information, visit www.pagosacenter.org or call 731-SHOW.

You can find links to all of the festival artists on the festival web site, www.folkwest.com. Making their FolkWest/Pagosa Springs debut at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival, Della Mae proves again and again the endless possibilities found in the tried-and-true marriage of fiddle, fretboard, and voice. Their lineup is a whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who of promising young pickers: lead singer Celia Woodsmith, guitarist Courtney Hartman, bass player Shelby Means, mandonlinist Jenni Lyn Gardner, and two-time National Fiddle Champion Kimber Ludiker are all seasoned performers who have won countless contests and shared the stage with the likes of Willie Nelson, Del McCoury, Leon Russell, and Laurie Lewis. Though they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shy away from showing off their considerable technical talent, Della Mae is at heart a songdriven band with vocals that can tell an entire story in the merest syllable, and instruments that play with finesse and vivacity to match. Their 2011 release, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Built This

Heart,â&#x20AC;? was an impressive debut, a delicate balance between bluegrass grit and singer-songwriter sensitivity. With a new album in the works produced by Bryan Sutton and their first label release, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that Della Mae is just getting started. Della Mae will play the main festival stage on Sunday, June 9, at 4:30 p.m. Front man and multi-instrumentalist Matt Flinner has made a career out of playing acoustic music in new ways. Starting out as a banjo prodigy who was playing bluegrass festivals before he entered his teens, Flinner later took up the mandolin, won the National Banjo Contest at Winfield, Kans., in 1990, and took the mandolin award there the following year. Since then, he has become recognized as one of our premier mandolinists as well as one of the finest new acoustic/roots music composers today. Flinner has toured and recorded with a wide variety of bluegrass, new acoustic, classical and jazz artists, including Tim Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, Frank Vignola, Steve Martin, Darrell Scott, the Modern Mandolin Quartet, Leftover Salmon, Alison n See Festival on next page

Brown, Tony Trischka, Darol Anger, and the Nashville Chamber Orchestra. He has also recorded two Compass Records CDs and toured as part of Phillips, Grier and Flinner with bassist Todd Phillips and guitarist David Grier. His two solo CDs (also on Compass), â&#x20AC;&#x153;The View from Hereâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Latitude,â&#x20AC;? are now widely considered classics in the new acoustic/modern bluegrass style. His current group, the Matt Flinner Trio has been forging new pathways for the standard bluegrass trio since its inception in 2002. Flinner, along with guitarist Ross Martin and bassist Eric Thorin, cover a wide variety of musical stylesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all with the common ground of American roots as well as originality. Bluegrass, jazz and Celtic music are all present here, but not necessarily overtly or in a contrived sense. Call it Americana Music, or New Acoustic or Chamber Grass, or just call it Great Music; whatever label you put on it, it is guaranteed to be fresh and original, and definitely something

youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never quite heard before. The trio began doing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Music du Jourâ&#x20AC;? tours in 2006, in which each member of the group writes a new composition the day of the show, and all three new pieces are performed on that eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concert. After several of these tours the trio recorded its first CD, Music du Jour, on Compass Records in 2009. They have now performed over 75 â&#x20AC;&#x153;du Jourâ&#x20AC;? shows and continue to explore new frontiers and new sounds in acoustic string band music. Their second CD, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winter Harvest,â&#x20AC;? was released on Compass Records on Jan. 31, 2012. The Matt Flinner Trio returns to Pagosa Folk â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;N Bluegrass with a main stage set on Saturday, June 8, at 2:30 p.m. Pagosa Folk â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;N Bluegrass is supported in part with funding from Colorado Creative Industries. FolkWestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other big event, the Four Corners Folk Festival, takes place Aug. 30-Sept. 1.

Concerts are May 17 and 18 at 7 p.m. and May 19 at 4 p.m. in the Pagosa Springs High School Auditorium. Parts of the concert will celebrate the American spirit. An inspirational selection, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve Been in the Storm So Long,â&#x20AC;? was inspired in response to the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. This spiritual speaks to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;stormsâ&#x20AC;? we all face and reminds us of the unwavering courage and strength we all need to triumph over lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storms. The jazz ensemble is singing a selection entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dream.â&#x20AC;? Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy spoke of the American dream. Our dreams help us through the realities we

face each day and give us hope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bring Me Sunshineâ&#x20AC;? reminds us the world needs more happiness, more smiles, more laughter and more bright tomorrows. Thomas Jefferson was heartened by the fact that the greater part of life is sunshine. The second half of the concert salutes our military service men and women. Flags representing each branch of our military will be presented by members of the America Legion Post 108. An ensemble of musicians from the Pagosa Springs Community Band joins the choir for several patriotic selections. A special arrangement of â&#x20AC;&#x153;America, the Beautifulâ&#x20AC;? will touch your heart and bring you to your feet.

The Pagosa Arts & Culture Project is establishing the groundwork for continued collaboration and cooperation and promotional efforts of the combined community. The goal of the project is to establish a solid foundation of cultural and creative individuals and businesses, to create a viable plan for promoting these assets and to promote the Pagosa area as a worthy place of residence for creative people, a productive place for creative business ventures and a desirable destination for arts tourism. At present, the PACP is also planning an event for fall 2013. The event, the MAKERS Expo and Tour, is set for Oct. 12-13. To register and be listed in the

database, go to http://pagosaacp. org/Register.html. In order to highlight the MAKERS in Pagosa, the PACP will profile its members, giving readers of The PREVIEW a sense of the depth and breadth of the creative community. This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MAKER is John Farley. Q: Tell us a little about who you are, where you were born, educated, your family, growing up and how you came to be doing your creative work? JF: I lived most of my life in various locations in the Midwest before my wife, Alice, and I moved to Pagosa Springs late in 2011. I was born in Waterloo, Iowa, and developed an interest in weather early in life, although it would be some time before that interest evolved into weather photography. I remember that often when a thunderstorm moved in my Dad and I would sit in our west-facing garage and watch the storm approach until the wind blew the rain in so much that we had to close the garage door. Despite my interest in weather, my education and career took me in other directions. I majored in political science as an undergraduate student at Michigan State, then moved 60 miles n See Creative on next page

Creative n continued from previous page

down the road to the University of Michigan where I received graduate degrees in sociology and urban planning. I worked for 30 years as a sociology professor, mainly at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE), just northeast of St. Louis, Mo. My specialty areas included urban sociology, race relations, disaster research, and research methods and statistics. I co-founded a fair-housing organization in the St. Louis area and was elected president of the Midwest Sociological Society and of the SIUE Faculty Senate. Although my career took me in the direction of the social sciences, I retained my lifelong interest in weather. I was always out with a camera after a big snowstorm, and a picture that I took of an approaching thunderstorm was shown on a St. Louis TV station back in the days when TV stations were just starting to show viewer photos of weather. By the mid-1990s, I was beginning to chase and photograph severe thunderstorms in the St. Louis and southern Illinois areas. I photographed my first tornado two days before Christmas in 1996 during an unusual December outbreak of severe weather. Although I had always taken lots of pictures, I would not describe myself as a serious photographer until around the year 2000. By then, my interest in photographing lightning spurred me to learn more about photography and to invest in better photographic equipment. By the time of my retirement in 2006, I was beginning to exhibit my work in various art fairs, photography shows, and galleries. Since then I have exhibited my photography in juried art and photography shows in Illinois, New Mexico and Colorado. In 2011, my video of the storm that produced a destructive tornado at Lambert St. Louis International Airport appeared on the National Geographic Channel. My photography has also appeared in Weatherwise Magazine and in the photo book, “A Year or So in the Life of New Mexico.” Currently, some of my work featuring both weather and landscape is on display and is available for purchase at the Ragged Edge gift shop here in Pagosa Springs. Q: Describe the objects you make or the creative work you do. JF: I am a fine-art digital photographer specializing in weather and nature photography. I make matted and framed prints in various sizes. Q: What is your favorite tool or material used in making your work? Why? JF: My tools include my cameras, lenses and computers for post-processing, but my favorite materials are the sky and landscapes themselves. I strive to cap-

ture what is given to me in the sky and landscapes as truly as I can, because I do not think it is possible to improve upon the spectacular images that nature offers to us. You just have to be there at the right time and have the skills to capture and truly represent the beauty and sometimes the drama that nature and the sky offer. Q: Do you have a regular routine or schedule? JF: Since retiring, I have tried very hard to avoid regular schedules and routines. In part, I do this because weather does not occur according to a regular routine or schedule. I want to be available to take advantage of the opportunity when interesting weather occurs in our area, and in some cases to take multi-day trips to other areas in order to document interesting weather events. The amount of time I spend working on my photography varies considerably from week to week. It is a lot during and after a major photo shoot or weather event, when I have numerous photos to process, and also when I am preparing prints for an exhibit. At other times, it is quite a bit less. Q: What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you? JF: When you choose to undertake a project, as much as possible try to work on something that you feel strongly about in your gut. Q: When you’re not making art, what is your favorite thing to do in Pagosa Country? JF: I love to ski and fish. Skiing is what led me to discover Pagosa Country, and the fishing here is as good as anywhere I have traveled. And one thing I have learned is to have a camera along when skiing and fishing, because being outdoor activities, they sometimes offer spectacular opportunities to photograph dramatic weather and landscape. Some of my best pictures have been taken with very ordinary cameras that I carried along when I was skiing or fishing. Q: What are your goals for the coming year? JF: To get some spectacular weather photographs and continue to improve my skills as a photographer. Q: What is your dream project? JF: I think my dream project would be to work as a photographer for a tornado research project on the Great Plains, such as the Vortex or Vortex II research projects. In these large-scale research projects, dozens of researchers deploy Doppler Radar on Wheels, wind and humidity sensors, and probes they try to put in the path of a tornado to measure wind speed and barometric pressure. All of these approaches combine to produce a wide variety of data to better understand the conditions that lead to formation of tornadoes. Photographing and documenting

such a project and the storms the researchers observe would be a dream project for me.

Adventure slideshow tonight at library By Meg Wempe Special to The PREVIEW

In case you missed the information last week, the library staff wants to be sure to tell you — or remind you — about tonight’s special program. Do you consider yourself an adventurer? Enjoy hearing about other people’s explorations? Are you interested in Alaska? If you said “yes” to any of these questions, then the Ruby Sisson Library has a special event tonight (Thursday, May 16) at 6 p.m. that you’ll want to be sure not to miss. Jim Hale, author of “An Alaskan Life of High Adventure,” will be at the library to share his stories about his unique Denali expedition. Imagine hang gliding at over 20,000 feet! Hear firsthand accounts from the expedition’s co-leader. Learn what happened when he and other people tried launching from North America’s highest peak. Hale will present a

slideshow of his Denali hang gliding expedition, and answer questions from the audience. Born in Alaska, Hale did a lot of exploration, both in climbing and guiding people to the top of Denali. According to a radio interview, he saw it as “a natural thing” to continue with exploring. Having lived in Alaska for many years, including when it was a territory and not yet a state, he can share how he has seen Alaska change. Come hear some of his tales of Alaskan adventures including miraculous escapes. What kind of special preparation was planned for Denali? Was the hang gliding adventure a success? Has it been attempted since? Find out the answer to these questions — and more — tonight, May 16. Books will be available for purchase along with author signing. Registration is not required. If you have questions, call 2642209.

Milk, green apples and a dead man Photo courtesy John M. Motter

Josephine Victoria Bennett Pargin was born to John B. and Anna Henry Bennett in Mitchell, S.D., March 12, 1877. Her father was the first telegraph operator at the Ignacio Indian Agency when the railroad reached there in 1881. Later, the family moved to a ranch at Columbus Bridge nine miles north of Bayfield where she married Benjamin F. Pargin on Dec. 13, 1893.

Dr. Mary Winter was a pioneer Pagosa doctor. She later married and became Dr. Mary Winter Fisher. There may still be folks in the area who personally remember her or were delivered by her as a baby, although she passed away in 1928.

The couple lived around Bayfield until 1902 when they moved to Pagosa Springs. They resided mostly in the Piedra area. She passed away in October of 1950. M. M. “Sully” Parr died July 31, 1911, at his sheep camp at the head of Four Mile Creek near Pagosa Peak. His death is the source of a story told by oldtimers involving Pagosa pioneer Dr. Mary Winter Fisher. According to the story, Parr had left his sheep camp and gone into town to get supplies. On his way home, he stopped at Ma Cade’s place near the head of Four Mile Trail. Being a good host, she offered Parr a snack of what she had — some milk and green apples. He ate the vittles, thanked Ma Cade, climbed back into the saddle and scrambled up Four Mile Creek to his sheep camp, which was located above Upper Four Mile Lake. Shortly after arriving in camp, he became violently ill with abdominal pains. One of the sheepherders saddled up and rode into Pagosa Springs to get Dr. Mary. As frontier doctors often did, Dr. Mary made house calls. Never mind that this “house” was over 20 miles away in a wilderness reachable only by horseback. And so, Dr. Mary hitched up her team and surrey, rode in the wagon to Ma Cade’s house (the place is a subdivision today called Cade Flats), removed her horse from the wagon, saddled it, and rode through the night up Four

Mile Trail to the sheep camp. Sully was dead when she arrived. To date, the location of the sheep camp in a saddle above Upper Four Mile Lake is called “Dead Man Pass.” If you go through Four Mile Pass in a northerly direction, as I have, you can then follow Dead Man Creek down to the East Fork of the San Juan River. Other Parrs, including Estie and Lee, also lived in Pagosa Springs during those times. One of them, I’ve lost track of his name, rode horseback from Pagosa Springs to Arizona, bought a herd of cattle, and drove the herd back to Pagosa Springs. Sully Parr was Archuleta County treasurer from 1896 until 1900.

Meet Mr. Social, the party planner We have the discussion at least once each week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re antisocial,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not. Now leave me alone.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are. You go out of your way to avoid being with people. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go out and we never have anyone over.â&#x20AC;? She pouts, stares at a fern across the room. A frond falls from the plant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to go out with peopleâ&#x20AC;? I say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that I have a very busy schedule. I have to work.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where? Did you get a job at a convenience store?â&#x20AC;? (Substitute â&#x20AC;&#x153;fast food jointâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;pizza deliveryâ&#x20AC;? for every-other-week conversation.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have you noticed the dog seems a bit lethargic lately. Think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting sick?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153; Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change the subject. The dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been dead for three years. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re antisocial and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s embarrassing.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Embarrassing? How so?â&#x20AC;? At this point Kathy leaves the room and returns with a raggedy sheet of yellow legal paper in her hand. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen it before. She snatches the remote from my hand and hits the mute button. So much for the latest edition of Cops. What good is it to watch Cops if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear the guy in the sleeveless T-shirt say nasty things to his common-law wife? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look at this list Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve compiled.â&#x20AC;? She points at the raggedy yellow paper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s everybody who has had us over â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if and when you would leave the house. We owe every one of them a return dinner. Look at it; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve run out of space. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s embarrassing. And look at all the names Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve crossed out; that alone is humiliating.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;How come?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those are all the people whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve died or moved away before we could have them over. I refuse to cross anyone else off the list before we make a good faith effort to invite them, invite anyone, over for dinner.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You seem to be indicating I have deliberately stalled this process.â&#x20AC;? I make a grab for the remote, but Kathy is too quick for me. She has the reflexes of a young cheetah (the fastest land animal). This irritates me; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gal on the tube explaining how you can lose 30 pounds in two weeks while eating all the cheese you want and ingesting enormous amounts of ephedrine. It seems reasonable. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affordable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting more than perturbed, Karl. We need to do something, make some decisions. Tell you what: Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tack the list to the wall and you can throw darts at it. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start that way. Two or three throws; each lands on a

will be uncomfortable and will require even the most egocentric guest to review his or her worth as a human being. (Note to self: Invite several local politicians.) The dinner parties will have historical, political and literary themes. Guests will be required — no exceptions — to dress in accord with the evening’s theme and to be ready to create a character in harmony with the proceedings. This will take a couple weeks of rehearsal prior to the date of the party. My guests will have to flex their creative muscles to come to dinner at my house. Party 1: The Stone Age. Dress: animal skins, crudely sewn garments. Guests will communicate with grunts and frequent physical aggression in order to procure one of the few bits of food available. Guests are asked to refrain from bathing for a week prior to the party. I will remove all furniture from the house and cover the floor with dirt and gravel. I’ll build an open fire inside the house to generate smoke and soot. The menu will include a limited selection of small forest animals, dead three to four days, kept at room temperature and served sashimi style. Guests will provide music by pounding on

logs and howling. Party 2: Caligula’s Banquet. I get to be Caligula. Dress: togas for the guys, elaborate flowing wraps for the gals. Each guest is asked to invite a brother, sister or first cousin as his or her “date.” We will eat our hummingbird and honey entrée while reclining on couches in an oil lamp-lit and heavily perfumed environment. During the meal we will discuss politics and, at some point in the proceeding, I will go berserk and have one of the guests eliminated. Party 3: An Evening at Versailles. Guests will be bedecked in foppish finery, with enormous, powdered wigs the mode of the day. They will engage in witty repartee and relieve themselves in the stairwell. The menu: cake, of course. Following the meal, everyone will stomp out a spirited gavotte and indulge in aristocratic class-bashing conversation. That is when I will burst in at the head of a gang of out-of-work Jacobin thugs (shouldn’t be hard to find here in Siberia With a View) and exact revenge for all of downtrodden humanity. Hold on to your hats. And your heads. Party 4: A Night with Chuck Dickens. The dining room: designed to look like the slop hall in a Victorian sweatshop. Guests will

Counseling Corner: Making sure a ‘mid-life crisis’ isn’t a crisis From the American Counseling Association

Getting older happens to all of us, but it can be a frightening experience as we first recognize our own signs of aging. Those first few gray hairs... that morning stiffness... realizing your eyesight isn’t what it used to be. It may be a gradual process, but the signs are certainly clear. The reality of aging can bring out a variety of responses. If a person sees aging as a natural experience and one associated with gaining wisdom, mid-life can be a positive experience. But for someone who places a lot of value on the virtues of youth, such as looks and strength, midlife can seem devastating. However, there are ways to combat such feelings and gain a more positive attitude about maturing. One starting point is simply to make a list of the lessons that have been learned since adolescence and how this knowledge has served you. On such a list you’ll probably find your success at work, the ease you now have at social gatherings, and your ability to build stronger personal relationships.

Another positive step can be to explore new activities to help you feel healthy and relaxed. No, not that under-30 baseball team, tennis tournament, or hockey league to “prove” you’ve still got it. That will only bring frustration (and probably injuries). Instead, look to jogging, swimming, yoga or other enjoyable but more ageappropriate activities. Try becoming more involved with children, your own or in the community, and pass on some of the skills you learned when their age. You might set some new goals, both individual and social, that you’d like to achieve, then begin planning on how to make them happen. Too often we find we’re unthinkingly following the plans of our earlier years, when our experience and maturity can instead now give us a clearer vision of what’s important and achievable. Sometimes people find it very difficult to accept growing older and find it leading to depression or other problems. That’s a good time to talk to a professional counselor. He or she can’t stop n See Counseling on next page

spend the first three hours brushing beaver top hats, contracting whopping cases of lead poisoning and complaining about their dental problems. A bell will ring and the all-suet dinner will begin. Guests will have five minutes to finish their meals then will join together in a rousing chorus of God Save the Queen before setting back to work. I’ve got several other ideas nearly ready: the Dustbowl Buffet; Famine in China Night (complete with one bowl of rice for six people, garnished with whatever strays into the yard that day); Adolph and Eva’s Last Meal in the Bunker; the Ludwig Wittgenstein “Pass the Slab” Feast. When I’m done with my plan, after we’ve hosted a few of these galas, I doubt Kathy will find grounds to complain about never having people over for dinner. I’ll be able to go back to Buffy, Willow, Tara and the NHL secure in the knowledge I am not antisocial. Now, I need to get work building a guillotine and learning to snare those pesky hummingbirds.

Day shift, one cup at a time By Jeff Smith

Special to The PREVIEW

I’ve been doing some night shifts, so now that I’m back on days, I’m still waking up at night because the body clock is turned around. It’s nice when it’s dark and quiet. You can think a bit before heading back to the sack. My cup of Joe will come with the sun.

A Arts Matter ofLine Faith I’ve been reading one of the wisdom books in the Bible, the book of Proverbs by Solomon. Solomon was a young, untested monarch who took the throne of Israel and asked for divine wisdom. He was told he would be the wisest who ever lived. Just finished chapter seven and for a book that is supposed to make a person wise, so he can have a good life, it packs a lot of drama. In this dark chapter, you get to read about a young man being lured to his death by a woman of the night. I count ten mistakes he makes. He . . . Thinks he is not being watched (vs 6). Has dumb friends (vs 7). Looks for love in all the wrong places (vs 8, 9). Misses plain, out-there signs that this is a bad person (vs 10). Lets passion fog his thinking (vs 13). Is offered a shallow display of faith in God (vs 14). Thinks that someone’s interest in him means they value him as a person (vs 15). Is convinced he won’t get caught (vs 19). Allows someone with no care for his well-being to lead him (vs 21). Assumes nothing bad will happen (vs 23). Now I am starting chapter

Jake, the fashion plate of the neighborhood I arrived at the Bible study, only to meet Jake and his master, Sam. Jake was energetic and happy. Sam said, “Jake wants to show you his stitches.” I looked at him and said, “Reeeaaaly?” The week before, Judy asked prayer for Jake. He was going in for liver surgery. She explained, “Our prayers have been answered.” “Did Jake have his surgery? How much have you spent on that dog, anyway?” Sam smiled, “Probably six thousand dollars.” “Six thousand dollars? That dog is a walking doctor bill on four legs. You have spent money on his teeth. You have him on a special diet because something is wrong with his stomach, and now he’s had liver surgery? If he were mine I would say ‘good-bye’ to Jake and give his wardrobe of clothes to Gus.” The women gasped and stared at me. Sam quipped back, “Jake said he was glad he wasn’t your

Artist’s Lane Betty Slade dog, and he was glad I’m his daddy.” I said, “I’m glad Jake isn’t my dog, either. I can think of a lot of things I could spend six thousand dollars on, and it wouldn’t be a dog.” Judy said, “You don’t understand, they found copper in Jake and he didn’t need surgery after all. They wouldn’t have known about his liver, except for his yearly physical.” “You give your dog a yearly physical? My Sweet Al doesn’t even get a yearly physical.” More gasps from the ladies. As our group gathered, the ladies continued talking about their animals. Sheryl held up a beautiful brown leather fleece-lined coat and said, “It will fit Gus fine.” Judy explained, “Jake didn’t

wear that coat this year. He got a new one.” Sheryl was elated. “Gus is enjoying the Thunderwear that Jake gave him, too.” Judy added, “The Thunderwear helped Jake with his anxiety problems, and it will help Gus, also.” I said, “What is this, a clothing exchange for dogs? I sure wish that coat were in my size. I’d fight Gus for it.” Sheryl gleefully bragged: “Gus is becoming the envy of the neighborhood by all his handme-downs from Jake.” Never one to be outdone, I found myself competing. “Angel puts a different color handkerchief on Daisy each month to keep with the seasons. This month it’s green. Daisy’s a country dog. It’s hard to keep her kerchief clean.” What will these women with their dogs think of next? Whatever they come up with, I’m sure Jake will have it first. He is definitely the fashion plate and a leader in the latest fashion. Gus is following close behind, in Jake’s handme-downs.

Sheryl looked over at me and asked, “Are you taking notes?” “Not me.” I smiled. “I’m autographing a copy of my book for Jake, as my favorite pet to write about. I’m wishing him good health. I must include Gus next time.” Final brushstroke: I prayed for Jake and I think it’s working. My heart is softening. Pagosa is dog country. I guess I’m going to have to get with the program.

Artist’s quote “Prayer enlarges the heart until it is capable of containing God’s gift of Himself.” — Mother Teresa.

UU topic: ‘Many are called’ By John Graves Special to The PREVIEW

On Sunday, May 19, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “Many Are Called,” presented by Dr. Stephan Papa. Reverend Papa will discuss the many aspects of professional ministries and the relationship between ministers and congregations, as well as the benefits afforded by a ministerial presence. His discussion will supplement the congregation’s recent focus group discussions regarding leadership options.

Papa received his Doctor of Ministry from Meadville Lombard Seminary and currently serves as the special assistant for the Growth Fund of the Unitarian Universalist Association in Denver, Colo. He is author of the book titled, “The Last Man Jailed for Blasphemy.” The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall. The address is Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.

you simple ones ...” Proverbs 8:1-4. Solomon is trying to tell us something about what it is to be a wise person. Here, it’s not hard to imagine in an ancient world what kinds of things are said resting at the top of a highway, waiting at a cross roads, walking into town or sweeping the front porch. The weather, the price of food, politics. They would also say things like, “Oh, that’s a smart thing to do,” or, “He was foolish to try that.” Common sense kinds of things. So, what he is saying is, just as there are foolish ideas that seduce and destroy, so there is a wise way of thinking, but it is open, out there and honest. It doesn’t deceive or coerce. It rejects the idea of dark secrets that are only for a few. The brilliance of wisdom and scripture as a whole is that, while it can create leaders, yet it refuses to create an elite. It speaks its profound ideas in the voice of common people, taking common reason to a higher level. Not everyone wants to be simple or naive. I don’t. Paul describes the shift this way: “Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the

contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly, we commend ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:2, NIV. It’s the difference between night and day.

That’s not what I see “Vision is the art of seeing things invisible.” — Jonathan Swift, 18th Century Irish-born author. Have all of you who are on successful nut journeys been keeping company with authenticity lately? Don’t you love the you that has been tucked away for years and that you have recently released? My guess is those around you may be quite uncomfortable with the changes you have made if you’ve tossed away your masks. Possibly, the reason for their discomfort is they are seeing you differently than you are seeing yourself. The biggest “if” on the planet concerns perspective or the way we “see” things. If we could all observe from the same perspective, life would be radical, to put it mildly. Can you imagine a world with no communication differences, where we all look at a situation and interpret it the same? What shall we call this new place? Cloud 9? Harmonia? Recently I read about the concept of sight. Scientific studies tell us we see with our minds, not our eyes. Could this be where the “mind’s eye” comes from? The following is taken from the book, “How We Know: An Exploration of the Scientific Process,” by Martin and Inge Goldstein concerning

the outcome of surgery performed on people who were born blind due to cataracts. After the surgery, these people saw only swirling lights and colors. They could not pick out objects. They all had to undergo a lengthy training to be able to ‘see’ things. I quote from the book, “It is apparent that (sight), the sense we think of as most directly putting us in touch with facts is learned rather than automatic. We see with our minds, not with our eyes, and we are subject to whatever unconscious biases and misconceptions are produced by the training that teaches us to see … things need not be what they seem … changes in our own thinking may change what we see.” My favorite part, “things need not be what they seem” is enormously appealing, and I wish to ascribe it immediately to certain situations in my life. When I look at something, I see it through my eyes. My

beliefs, experiences, cultural and familial influences make up my eyes. So, does this mean what I just saw isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t real? Maybe if I change my rose-colored glasses for some with green or blue lenses, the situation would appear totally different. Even with the different lenses, am I seeing truth? Could it be there are no problems on earth, only unruly perspectives? I used to think there were two sides to every story, but now I think there are three, my side, your side and the truth, which we evidently do not see due to our perspectives. How do you perceive yourself? Do you see yourself as happy, healthy, confident, intelligent, a problem solver? Does your perception of yourself include material possessions? How do your children, your peers, your co-workers, your pets, your siblings perceive you? Have you ever asked them? Asking any one of these groups how they â&#x20AC;&#x153;seeâ&#x20AC;? you could open some eyes or at least begin a titillating conversation. What does this have to do with getting outside your comfort zone you may ask. If our perceptions filter everything, and these perceptions are learned â&#x20AC;Ś so are our fears, doubts and sight. OMG, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been socially programmed! So, all those fears I harbored for years someone taught me? Tell me itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so. I was afraid because I thought I should be? Can it be as simple as changing our thoughts? No, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too easy. It has to be more difficult than that. If this is true, and if we have some 60,000 thoughts whizzing through our heads every day, as

scientists say, we can focus on one of those that is different from our usual daily focus and, voila, change takes place. Wow, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bloominâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; magic! In my last column, I mentioned spending three weeks in Murren, Switzerland, on a whim. I remember when I decided to stay in Switzerland, alone, my last thought when I walked into the hotel to ask for a job was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can do this.â&#x20AC;? I changed my thought for a moment from, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stay in a foreign country by myself,â&#x20AC;? to, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can do this.â&#x20AC;? I was not convinced by my words, and I did not know if I could do this or not, given it was a huge stretch outside my comfort zone, but I did change my thought. When I walked up to the desk to ask for work in trade for a room, just so I could spend more time in that blissful place, the woman behind the desk acted like she had been expecting me all day. She picked up the phone and called her husband who ran a restaurant on the mountaintop. I washed dishes four hours a day in that mountaintop restaurant (as I gazed out the window at the Alps) in trade for one meal a day and a hotel room. This went on for three weeks. It was a nutty thing to do at 56 years old. It was also the moment that I knew my life would never be the same. This week, try seeing something, anything, from a different perspective. To do this you might: 1. Stand on your head to get a different look at something. 2. Read an article written from the opposite viewpoint of yours. Read with the intent to understand a different opinion. It

doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean you have to agree, just sincerely make the attempt to understand the opposing perspective. 3. Spend five minutes writing a list of what you are grateful for. (This will change your perspective instantly.) 4. Change one thing in your routine. 5. Try to â&#x20AC;&#x153;seeâ&#x20AC;? how your child â&#x20AC;&#x153;seesâ&#x20AC;? that his/her room is clean. 6. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk for a day. Listen instead.

You are creative and quite able to think of ways to â&#x20AC;&#x153;seeâ&#x20AC;? things differently. Go for it. Heck, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all nuts here â&#x20AC;Ś no worries. Golfing Outside Your Comfort Zone is coming up next time. Until then, I leave you with a Roman influence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Marcus Aurelius, Roman emperor from 161-180 A.D. sueellen.haning@gmail.com

Jog for Julie â&#x20AC;&#x201D; everyone welcome By Cheryl Class-Erickson

Photo courtesy Cheryl Class-Erickson

Special to The PREVIEW

A race, featuring a run and walk, will be held Saturday, June 8, to raise funds to help Julie Knapp of Pagosa Springs pay for cancer treatments. Knapp is seen here with her husband, Mike, and their children, Rylie and Talon. A silent auction will be held the morning of the race, as well.

A 5K race, run/walk will take place Saturday, June 8, and is geared for all ages to come together to Jog for Julie. All proceeds from this event will go to help Julie Knapp pay for future treatments in her battle against cancer. Julie, her husband, Mike, and their daughter, Rylie, moved to Pagosa Springs in 2007. Three weeks later, they traveled to China to adopt their son, Talon, who was nearing his fifth birthday. Talon at the time of adoption was completely deaf. The Knapp family easily settled into Pagosa Springs, embracing it as their home. They are active members of Grace in Pagosa Church and are involved in various events and community activities. Mike is a Realtor with Pagosa Brokers. Julie is a stay-at-home wife and mother. She homeschools their two children who are now 9 and 10. Julie was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, stage 3, on Feb. 17, 2012. After much consultation with doctors, and hours of research and prayer, Julie began chemotherapy in March 2012 and continued with the treatment through June 14, 2012. The next decision involved surgery and, again, Julie and Mike consulted doctors, researched possibilities and prayed. Deciding to have surgery was weighty, but Julie felt God put the right doctors in the right place to make this step easier to endure. On July 24, 2012, Julie underwent a four-hour surgery. Follow up surgery for Julie took place on Nov. 6, 2012. On Dec. 12, 2012, Julie was diagnosed with stage 4, bone cancer metastasis. Metastatic cancer is cancer that has spread from the place where it first started to another place in the body. For a month, beginning in December, Julie underwent daily radiation treatments. The new year, 2013, began with the knowledge that another Pet Scan (Julieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third) would take place in April. On April 22, Julieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scan revealed cancer metastasis to three lymph nodes, two spots on bone and a spot in her right fallopian tube. Julie will meet with a doctor on May 16 to discuss another surgery. Julie has been getting a bonebuilding inoculation monthly and will continue to do so. However, at this time, the doctors Julie has been seeing in the United States have no other suggestions for a future treatment plan. Julie and Mike have remained faithful in investigating treatments that have proven successful in the battle against cancer. Through Jog for Julie we can help raise the money needed for Julie to go to Switzerland and get treatment there. This benefit

Financial pointers for expecting parents Couples expecting their first child often find that the months leading up to the birth of the baby are an exciting time filled with anticipation. But those months are also a time for expectant parents to make some important decisions regarding their finances. Raising a child is an expensive endeavor, one that couples must start preparing for the moment they learn a baby is on the way, if not earlier. Expecting parents likely know their lives are about to change, and those changes must extend to their finances. The following are a few financial pointers for parents-to-be. â&#x20AC;˘ Determine your necessary income. Many couples have hypothetical discussions regarding children and their finances, but until they receive the news that a baby is on the way, those conversations have a way of being put on the back burner. Now that a baby is on the way, couples need to revisit those discussions, and determining how much income they need is a great place to start. The dualincome household has become the norm in the 21st century, when the cost of living has skyrocketed. But couples must determine if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best interest for both parents to keep working once their child is born. The cost of childcare is considerable, and it may be in a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best interest for just one parent to work until the child reaches school age. Consider your total income as well as your financial obligations (i.e., mortgage, car payments, etc.) and then shop around for the cost of childcare. If it makes more sense to become a single-income household, even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s justfor a few years, then you will have another important decision to make. â&#x20AC;˘ Determine who is staying home. Couples who have decided that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in their best interests to become a single-income household once their child is born must decide who will be staying home and who will continue working. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to say the parent who is earning the most should continue working, but that decision is not so black and white. Consider the cost of healthcare offered by each of your employers. Some healthcare plans are significantly more affordable than others, and this might weigh heavily on your decision, especially if both parents are earning relatively similar incomes. Another thing to consider is each of your opportunities for advancement at your current company and within your field. Earning potential should factor heavily into the decision as to which parent will continue working, especially if you plan to have

another child down the road. The conversation as to who will continue working should be treated delicately. â&#x20AC;˘ Discuss your housing needs. Couples who are expecting a child often feel this is a great time to abandon apartment living and buy a home of their own. But chances are you can comfortably manage to live in your apartment for a few more years after your child is born. Those extra years of apartment living can give you the chance to save more money so you can afford a nicer home in a better neighborhood that boasts better schools. Or apartment living for a few more years may give you more time to save and place a larger down payment on your home down the road. The larger the initial down payment, the lower your monthly mortgage payment, so it might be in your best interest to squirrel away a few more dollars before you go house hunting. â&#x20AC;˘ Establish a financial safety net. Many financial advisors suggest both singles and couples have between three to six monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; income saved in case of emergency, such as a layoff or an accident that prevents you from working. This is especially important for expecting couples, who will soon have an additional mouth to feed. This safety net should be big enough so you can comfortably pay all of your bills, including those for housing, transportation and food, for three to six months. If saving that amount of money is not realistic, save as much as possible and continue to do so once your child is born. â&#x20AC;˘ Purchase life insurance. Life insurance is perhaps the most important purchase expectant couples can make once they learn a baby is on the way. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understandable if young couples without children have no life insurance, but that child on the way will be relying on his or her parents for financial support for at least the next 18 years. Life insurance ensures you can provide that support even if something happens to both you and your spouse. â&#x20AC;˘ The months leading up to the birth of a child is an exciting time for the expecting parents, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a time to make some important financial decisions.
