Medical marijuana was again in question Tuesday afternoon at the Archuleta County Board of County Commissioners’ meeting. With the existing moratorium banning any new medical marijuana dispensaries in unincorporated Archuleta County set to expire yesterday, County Attorney Todd Starr suggested extending that moratorium, citing a constantly changing environment surrounding medical marijuana. Starr suggested the extension with the addition of a requirement that he report to the board quarterly concerning the status of medical marijuana in Colorado. Having suggested the reporting requirement, Starr told the BoCC that the environment concerning the substance is changing rapidly, making reporting on it difficult. Starr said that, as of the time of the meeting, 32 Colorado counties have moratoriums concerning

medical marijuana, while 21 other counties have absolute bans. The “huge” concern, Starr said, is the simple fact that the substance is illegal according to the federal government, but is legal for medical purposes according to the state. Starr also noted the existence of one dispensary operating in Archuleta County, which he said operates in very professional fashion and lessens the brunt of banning any new dispensaries in the area. “I hate to see a monopoly, but that’s how the paper or cookie crumbled, if you will,” Starr said. Commissioner Michael Whiting was the first to speak on the topic, reiterating that the environment concerning medical marijuana will likely change rapidly until November (and the General Election), but that the dispensary operating currently helps those in the county who need medicinal marijuana.

BoCC extends medical marijuana moratorium

!y $andi Pierce An arrest has been made in a rash of burglaries that took place during the week of April 23. Louis Caesar -ordan Jordan, 31, was arrested May 8, following a tip that led to two search warrants and the discovery of stolen items. A total of 13 flat screen televisions were stolen from 13 different condos in the Pagosa Lakes area over two nights the week of April 23, as well as three Blu-ray players and one stereo. The burglaries took place in the Ptarmigan condos, which are a part of Wyndham Pagosa, indicated Det. Rich Valdez of the Archuleta County Sheriff’s Office, previously. Valdez said the burglaries took place on two different days, with two reports filed on April 24 and 11 reports filed on April 27. Several other burglary attempts were made, as well. Valdez said he received a tip from Wyndham the morning of May 8 indicating that a male was keeping the TVs at two different locations and that they were being sold. The investigation then gathered enough information for search warrants to be obtained for the two locations — 343 Fireside Street and 158 Eaton Drive, Unit 202A. Valdez said a plan to carry out the search warrants was put in place with help from Deputy Brandon Bishop and, with assistance from the Pagosa Springs Police Department, two teams executed the two search warrants simultaneously. During the searches, three TVs and the stereo were recovered, Valdez said. Several people were interviewed during the searches, revealing the TVs and Blu-ray players and leading to the recovery of an additional TV and a Blu-ray player. Additionally, warrants for nontestimonial evidence (DNA and fingerprints for identification purposes) were served on three adult

Mirroring, and outperforming, the national economy, the county continues to show gradual improvement as sales tax collections in March exceeded numbers from the same month last year by 5.06 percent, the seventh straight month of positive growth in those numbers. Furthermore, the Town Tourism Committee said last week that March receipts for lodgers tax were up 14.27 percent, reporting the ninth straight month for record collections, with collections for the first quarter of 2012 up 13.33 percent over the same quarter last year. While both sets of figures hint at a positive economic outlook for the first part of this year, caution should be applied when broadly interpreting those numbers. Reported last week by the Colorado Department of Revenue (CDR), March’s sales receipts indicated a

trend of economic growth . Indeed, the county has not seen seven consecutive months of positive collections since mid-2006. With March collections, the county is up 4.08 percent on year-to-date collections, showing the strongest first quarter since 2007. In 2010, firstquarter collections were up just 2.42 percent, an indication that the local economy was beginning to show a rebound, especially since local hiring ramped up later in the year, apparently in response to increased demand for local goods and services. Recent sales tax collection trends in the county correlate with the fortunes of local workers. In early 2007, when the county logged record sales tax collections and was still in the midst of a housing boom, local unemployment stood at historic lows. While 2007 showed record collections for the year, receipts began to diminish during the last two n See Sales A8

The Pagosa Springs Town Council will hear the second reading of Ordinance 770 today that, if passed, would approve $5,000 in earnest money for properties along South 5th and 6th streets and would commit the town to the purchase of those properties in the summer provided a Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) River Corridors Initiative Grant is awarded in midJune. Unfortunately, GOCO money will not be forthcoming, at least during this grant cycle, throwing into question how council will adjudicate today’s ordinance. On Monday, Town Planner James Dickhoff received news from Dale Craker, Director of Programs for GOCO, that the town would not be receiving any of the near $6 million it had applied for to fund a river corridor project, including acquisition of the aforementioned properties.

Time to let adults be adults

Should public funds be spent to bring special events to the area?

County commissioners dealt Tuesday, again, with the question of medical marijuana dispensaries, voting to continue with the status quo (a moratorium on operation of any new dispensaries and the continued operation of a sole business). The situation highlights issues, each of which reveals the absurdity and unworkability of current drug laws and policies — at all levels of American government. The first issue concerns the variability of laws dealing with possession, sale and use of marijuana. In some states, and many municipalities, medical marijuana dispensaries operate with relative freedom, but they do so contrary to federal law. Any time a state, county or municipality decides it will allow for sale and use of medical marijuana, the chance looms that the federal government will bring the hammer down. The hammer does not work. It has never worked and never will, but it remains at the ready and advocates are funded to an extraordinary extent. The federal government’s longstanding “War on Drugs” has been a failure and campaigns waged at state and local levels have failed, no matter what those whose efforts and agencies have profited from the profligate spending might claim. The “War” has cost the American people a staggering amount of money, created enormous bureaucracies and pushed waves of funds to law enforcement at all levels; it has put millions behind bars for minor offenses related to marijuana; it has encouraged the creation of violent criminal efforts, and has clearly failed to stem the use of marijuana in the U.S. The “War” has, by making marijuana use by adults illegal, paradoxically made it easier for underage users to procure the substance and has denied government coffers of much-needed tax revenues. This “War” has its roots in law first enacted in the 1930s, promoted by industries eager to maximize their profits and extinguish competition. That is the sole thing that has worked in the “War.” Alcohol is sold to adults. Tobacco is sold to adults. Prescription drugs are sold — in ever-increasing volume —while the “war” continues blindly on. Second: In a case such as here in Archuleta County (the town imposed a moratorium allowing no dispensaries within its borders) the moratorium permits one business to dispense medical marijuana but denies others the opportunity. This puts the county in the position of supporting a monopoly — something government should not do. The market is taken out of the equation. This is dicey terrain, at best. Perhaps the solution to the medical marijuana problem is, on the surface, simple: legalize the sale and use of marijuana for adults. Recognize reality: there are medical uses for the substance and, as is the case with alcohol, there are recreational uses as well. There is a growing number of Americans, from all points on the political spectrum (many, like Pat Robertson, from a sector that has traditionally thought otherwise), calling for decriminalization or legalization of marijuana. The libertarian point of view is gaining ground and, if one checks Americans age 40 and under, the future is clear. Why wait? Allow adults to determine what they will do with their bodies. As is the case with alcohol, make tangential crimes the target — DUI, providing the substance to minors, etc. Require substance abuse programs for offenders. Save more punitive action for repeat offenders. Tax the sale of the product and use funds for rehabilitation and education programs. Dismantle a significant portion of an increasingly costly prison industry, turn the funds back to the taxpayer or use them in more productive ways. It’s time Americans grow up. Let adults be adults, so long as they act like adults, and get on to more important things. Karl Isberg

Taken from SUN files of May 19, 1922 Tony Sorenson and crew are working the Yellowjacket divide, and are fixing the bad holes and bridges. For Sale — New quilts, 72x90; cash only. Mrs. M.E. Hartley. Why does it cost $2.27 a yard to build concrete roads in Colorado and only $1.52 in Ohio, as reported by the federal service? Colorado has the material for concrete right at its door. Gilbert Mullins, four-year-old grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Mullins, bears the distinction of not only having the American Legion post of Pagosa Springs named after his father, Lester W. Mullins, but is also a great grandson of the Civil War veteran, after whom the Murray post of the G.A.R. at Memphis, Mo., was named.

Taken from SUN files of May 21, 1937 Fishing along the Piedra is not very active as yet. Fishermen who are making the first attempts, are out between the Junction of Stollsteimer creek and the Melrose place where so far, they have met the greatest success. Bert and Severaino Martinez and their families, former residents, but now living in Denver, came down Saturday night to establish a camp on the Piedra where they will be engaged for some time in excavating the ruins to be found there. Sometime ago Messrs. Martinez were here with an expert in archaeological research who marked places along the river for excavation. A bridge over Stollsteimer creek to take the place of the one destroyed in the floods some weeks ago is now being constructed.

Taken from SUN files of May 17, 1962 Patrolman Don Rasnic made what was probably the biggest arrest of his career last week when he took a driver, and a 65,000-pound vehicle, into custody. The arrest was made on Yellow Jacket when Rasnic noticed a large Euclid dirt moving machine coming down the highway in rather an erratic fashion. He immediately stopped the vehicle and discovered that the driver appeared to be intoxicated. Patrolman Rasnic would just as soon not meet any more vehicles weighing more than 30 tons coming down the road in a side to side fashion. Top speed of the big machine was estimated at 21 miles an hour. There will be a broom sale Saturday starting at 8:30 a.m. The sale is under the sponsorship of the local Lions Club and the benefits go to a fund for the blind.

Taken from SUN files of May 14, 1987 Prospects of losing its water supply line continues to be a real possibility for the Town of Pagosa Springs. A large section of the southern slope on Jackson Mountain appears to be gradually slipping downhill towards the town water main, a portion of U.S. 160 and the San Juan River, and Manager of Public Works Joe Dan Martinez is concerned about the problems a slide on Jackson Mountain could pose for Pagosa Springs. Martinez told Town Trustees he has monitored the slope on the mountain since he installed a town water line above ground through the potential slide area last June. According to Martinez, the frequency of breaks in the line caused by shifting ground has increased over the past two months.

Letters Creative destruction Dear Editor: Another disappointing endof-the-world disaster: the Mayan calendar goes well beyond 2012. First, the millennium wasn’t a global implosion, then that comet came and went, next the Rapture flopped (great bumper stickers), Social Security just recorded a 95 billion surplus and now Obama is threatening to get reelected. Is there no reliable end-of-the-world scenario? Well, take heart, disaster may yet lurk. The Darwinian Republican economists tell us that saving our auto industry was a violation of God’s natural economic law of creative destruction. Oops, on second thought, Mitt just claimed credit. I’ll tell you what “creative destruction” is all about: it’s the current Republican Party. Romney just “accepted” resignation of his key foreign policy advisor for being gay. OK to direct foreign policy, but marriage is a no-no. Regulation of the financial industry is unnecessary says Republican CEO Dimon at JP Morgan, just before he reported $2 billion in related “egregious investment decisions.” John Kerrey was smeared for serving in Vietnam while George Bush hid in the Air National Guard. Mitt’s hideout was a religious posting in France. And the Republicans are outraged Obama claimed credit for bin Laden. I guess they forgot about “Mission Accomplished” George. The Affordable Health Care Act (“Obama Care”) is a plan devised by a Republican conservative think tank as an alternative to Clinton’s proposal. And let’s not forget Mitt’s comment:”Of course, corporations are citizens.” Ya think there’s any consistency — any other than power and contributions at all costs? Ben Franklin was dead set against giving up freedom for security; he considered it treason as did many other founding fathers. Currently Republicans love the Patriot and National Defense Acts, which both demolish, do away with, as in destroy, our freedoms and aspiration. Yup, that’s God’s creative destructionism for sure. Al Qaeda is nearly defunct, but NSA is building a “super” digital storage site in Utah. Soon, every time you touch the Internet, or any phone, everything related to that communication will be filed for analysis. A recently retired NSA planner for that facility said, ”we’re as close to a turn-key dictatorship as possible.” It will just depend on who’s in congressional/presidential power. So, voting is pretty important. Hey, I got it: If you’re eligible to vote and you don’t, let’s place a fine or require public service.. Why not, the Aussies do. We could do it locally. Imagine the’“disaster” of high voter turnout! Dave Blake

Half full Dear Editor: It is with a bit of sadness that I notice some self-appointed town criers warning us that “our adorable little town” is going to be ruined with the coming of a smaller sized Wal-Mart. Their heralds leave me wondering; what about the horrible eyesores seen entering/exiting Pagosa Springs from the east and west? Don’t these and other trashed locations blight our little town and embarrass the locals?

I rate my feelings about the arrival of Wal-Mart at about 6.5 on a scale of 10 ... 1 being Chicken Little’s rant of, “The sky is falling” to a 10 being, “I’m so beyond myself happy!” Our town was supposed to be ruined by the coming of traffic lights and fast-food eateries; didn’t happen. The lack of jobs, deep potholes, insufficient tax revenue and ugly visual “dump-blights” concern me far more. Revitalize downtown? I’m all for it! But revitalization won’t produce 150 new jobs providing livablewages with benefits either. The other day, while waiting to see my doctor, I picked up a magazine …”Colorado Springs STYLE.” In passing the time, I came upon an article titled, “The Wal-Mart Effect.” I’d like to quote it. “A major turning point in Woodland Park’s transformation was the introduction of their first big-box retailer, often considered THE big-box retailer: Wal-Mart. ‘There was kind of an ongoing joke that you couldn’t even buy underwear in this town,’ says resident and development consultant Bob Harvey. While he was in favor of a place to buy such underthings, he describes the schism created between proand anti-growth groups. “When we talk about the convergence of philosophies, that was the time when they became most obvious. We still have a segment of the population that would prefer two-lane roads through town and the rest of the roads unpaved.’ “According to Debbie Miller, president of the Woodland Park Chamber of Commerce, the dire predictions about Wal-Mart’s negative effects proved unfounded. “‘It has not put any business in our community out of business,’ she says, calling Wal-Mart a phenomenal neighbor. “In fact, it has been an entity that we’ve been very fortunate to have in the recession years that has helped our community stay stable and continue to provide services like police and road maintenance.” The magazine even included a picture of the new store. It appears to be a good fit to the area; not too big, colored in forested earth tones and beautifully landscaped. Tragically, some of our town criers even insinuate that Wal-Mart’s involvement in local charitable organizations is nothing but a bribe. Gee, I guess just about every local business donation is also tainted. Maybe I better stop donating my time to Loaves and Fishes or sending financial assistance to missionaries reaching long-neglected peoples with food, clean water and medical assistance. After all, according to some, I might be an unscrupulous person seeking to bribe someone. Come on, this is Pagosa Country! Regardless of where we are on the “Wal-Mart Scale,” the town needs jobs of every kind, fixed roads, assisted charities and much needed tax revenue. The sky isn’t falling. It didn’t fall with traffic lights and fast foods; it won’t fall now. Stan F. Counsell

Hopeful Dear Editor: To The People of Pagosa Springs: I can no longer remain silent. As a licensed professional counselor who has been in practice over 25 years, I must comment on the letters that are being sent concerning Chris. I don’t know how long the vari-

ous people who are lodging complaints against Chris have been here in Pagosa. I do know that over the years, Pagosa Springs has been home to a collection of similar characters. I would like to make a few points about folks like Chris. Do you seriously believe that someone who demonstrates the behavior you have noted in your letters could successfully hold down a job? Do you have any knowledge of the real reason Chris and millions of other homeless like him are in their current predicament? Perhaps I can inform you. In the late 1980s, our government chose to begin withdrawing funding for various medical services to the disabled and indigent community. First to go were sheltered communities, such as workshops and supervised communal housing. Then the real axe fell. State mental health facilities began to lose the federal grants that made it possible for services to people such as Chris to be safely and ethically supported. I was a part of the community mental health system at that time and was both saddened and appalled as more and more services had to be discontinued due to lack of funds. Yes, it was taxpayer’s money that supported these programs. Yes, taxpayers screamed and yelled that they were paying too much. So, programs died due to lack of funding. No one in the “private sector” made a move to step in and support as tax-based funding was withdrawn. So, now you have Chris on your sidewalk because, quite honestly, there is no place for him to go. I am grateful that he can be safe here in Pagosa. I am grateful to those who tolerate his anti-social behavior. I am hopeful that more of you will now realize that due to his illness, he doesn’t have the same choices as those of us who are relatively mentally healthy. I am also hopeful that at some point, Chris will be able to find a place of peace in his mind and soul. I dare say, if any of you critical of his behavior had to carry the burden he does, would you not hope that there were those who showed compassion and understanding? Sam Conti

!"#$"%&!'(%)$*+,'&+$-+( about a $1,000 — about the same as an MRI. The technology is similar to that of making computer chips and the cost is projected to drop so low that it may be a cost benefit to the insurance companies or it may be a fairly inexpensive option at the health fair. Of course, knowing the result of medical diagnostic test is useless unless a medical provider can interpret the results and prescribe an effective treatment. Quite likely, this chore will exceed the capacity of the human brain and artificial intelligence algorithms and super computers will be assigned the task. Presently, this technology is not available. However, Watson, the IBM super computer and Jeopardy champ, is being reprogrammed for medical research. Quite likely, Watson’s grandson will have sufficient computing power to merge one’’s genome with one’s lifestyle records, gleaned from the Wal-Mart and City Market super computers, which will enable the insurance company’s super computers to calculate your insurance premiums and prescribe the optimum medical treatment. The treatment will likely be computer designed quantum dots (drugs) delivered by nano tech robots to the diseased organ in exactly the right dosage. Soon super computers will reduce your entire being to a128 gigabit thumb-size flash drive. As Dr. Strangelove (Peter Sellers) said in the movie, the computer will do it all.

Do it all Dear Editor: I believe my continuing the debate on global warming would be counter-productive and boring to the readers of The SUN. As my English-speaking Hindu friend says, “It is pointless to read the Bhagavad-Gita to a Buffalo.” I am perfectly comfortable with leaving the final decision on global warming to Mother Nature. I just finished reading the novel “2084: An oral history of the great warming,” by James Powell. A book so disturbing that I ran the numbers myself and concluded that Powell is overly pessimistic. I don’t think the catastrophes he describes will occur until well into the next century. I enjoyed reading Mr. Jim McQuiggin’s shuffle into the hospital for a procedure. I was disappointed Jim didn’t have his genome sequenced while he was there. A decade ago, hundreds of microbiologists unraveled the first humane genome at a cost of billions of dollars. Three years ago, the genome of seven humans had been sequenced. Today, this has been accomplished for about 30,000 humans. Presently, the cost of sequencing a human’s genome is

Letters n Continued from A3

Withdrawal Dear Editor: Well, they did it again and I hope most of you went to see “Grease.” It is amazing to see the stage in the high school full of students signing and dancing. “Grease” had a big cast and they worked so hard for many months to present a spectacular production. It is sad for some of us who have had the privilege of getting to know many of these young people well that they will be taking their glorious talents with them as they move on. I told them I would be in withdrawal for awhile, but happy for them as they make many discoveries of what the future holds for them. Cindy Gustafson

Thoughts Dear Editor: Random thoughts and other curious things. • I know one thing for sure: If we recognize and celebrate our oneness we can have our differences in peace. On the larger sale, it’s one planet, with one humanity. • Corporations are still not people. • How about some aluminum can recycling bins in town and in our wonderful parks system. This would be a positive move for ourselves and a signal to tourists that we are a progressive community. (Note: It takes 27 tons of excavated earth to manufacture one ton of aluminum.) • Reservoir Hill: The good ideas: enhancement of the trails system, amphitheater and restrooms. The bad ideas: “the carnival” (i.e., zip lines, alpine coaster, chair lift, balloon rides, cotton candy, etc.) Truthfully, all ideas are valid and I am not against people, even if their views are diametrically opposed to mine. • Our town’s and, more specifically, this bio-region’s greatest assets are the vast primal beauty of our natural world and solar energy. Sadly, we have not embraced the latter in our architectural thinking. However, I can easily envision, in time, becoming exemplars in this free and sustainable resource. Let us be wise stewards of our bioregion’s gifts. • It seems prudent that whatever our political/economic impulses are that we consider them to benefit the locals first and the valuable tourists second. • Simply, I would much rather support local people — my neighbors — in their local businesses. Wal-Mart — yikes! — bad idea. It seems reasonable and appropriate for all county residents to have a vote on this issue, particularly when they own and operate businesses in town. I am sensitive to our neighbors with limited funds who see Wal-Mart as a savior, however, it is way too high of a price to pay for our community. • “May peace prevail on earth” on plaques and placed on poles; this laudable phrase comes in over 100 languages. Can you imagine a series of “peace poles” placed throughout town and in our parks. Now that would attract quality tourists while uplifting our lives (peacepoleproject.org). • Lately, it occurs to me that it would be advantageous to consider an “across the board” upgrade, as individuals (including myself ), as educational systems, as political arenas, as economic/business activities, etc. These times seem to suggest it — seems to suggest development of a culture of life. Remember, life is very different compared to when we were half our age. • Also of late, a line from a Bobby Dylan tune has been floating through my mind … “strengthen the things that remain.” Actually, he got it from the Bible. • There’s a temporary cretinstyle seven-circuit labyrinth in the town park near the hot springs. Walk and enjoy. Jai Roger Klarl

Surprised Dear Editor: I am surprised to see how many local people and businesses supported and promoted the recent Carson & Barnes Circus that came to our town. Carson & Barnes Circus has a notorious reputation for cruelty to animals and many times they have failed to meet even the minimum federal standards for the care of animals used in exhibition, as established by the Animal Welfare Act. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has cited Carson

& Barnes Circus numerous times for animal neglect and cruelty. Of course, Carson & Barnes denies this, stating that these claims are made up by animal rights groups. However, a simple Internet search allows you to pull up the actual USDA citations. In my search, I was able to find 46 charges of animal cruelty against them, many of them resulting in the death of the animal. There are too many reports of animal abuse by Carson & Barnes to list in this letter. Carson & Barnes has been cited by the USDA for dangerous barns and fencing, and for failure to provide the animals with adequate shelter from the elements. The USDA has charged Carson & Barnes Circus with “failure to meet minimum space requirements” for the animals and to maintain their cages. The report discusses their rusty cages, and cages that are so small the animals can not stand up or turn around in them. The report also mentions some of the cages being “filthy” and without proper drainage of waste. The USDA charged Carson & Barnes Circus with transporting animals in dangerous trailers. There were several instances in the reports of elephants and giraffe being killed in these trailers. There are numerous videos available online in which undercover investigators have caught Carson & Barnes Circus animal trainers, handlers and animal care directors viciously attacking the elephants with bull hooks, shocking the elephants with electric prods and burning the elephants hair off with a blowtorch. In one video, an animal care director instructs the trainers on how to embed sharp metal hooks into the elephant’s skin. A U.S. District Court Judge that viewed this video footage of Carson & Barnes cruelty described it as “troubling” and noted that the video depicts conduct that violates the federal Animal Welfare Act. As if all of this weren’t enough, the cost to the United States government to confiscate exotic animals from negligent traveling show companies has been staggering. The USDA inspected Carson & Barnes Circus 42 times between 2007 and 2010. The average cost per inspection was $1,363, for a total cost of $57,246 to taxpayers. Many countries, including Austria, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Finland, Singapore and Sweden have already banned wild animals from traveling shows. The Bellevue, Neb., city council voted against allowing the Carson & Barnes Circus to perform in their town. Led by Councilwoman Carol Blood, who said she had researched the circus and believed it was guilty of repeated animal welfare violations. “One violation is enough for me,” Blood said. “I found 72 just over the past year.” I wish Pagosa Springs had done a little research before welcoming Carson & Barnes Circus with open arms. I am afraid ignorance is no longer a valid excuse. Dina Lininger

Disturbing Dear Editor: I find it disturbing to see this continual lineup of Tea Party semiliterate drivel passing itself off as reasonable dialog in The SUN’s opinion section. The Tea Party has diluted the economy down to the simplistic notion that this president, personally, has spent the country into bankruptcy, and any rhyme, reason, or fact, that doesn’t fit this narrow minded myopic view is discounted out of hand. They seem to have no use for the actual history of the past decade. They ignore a massive tax cut in the middle of two unfunded wars, an unpaid for give away to the drug lobby, the rape of the economy by investors that left pensions depleted and states on the verge of bankruptcy, rising medical costs while insurance companies make historic profits, the wholesale shipping of jobs (and revenue) overseas, and a massive “defense” budget that is higher than the next seventeen countries combined. Oh no, none of that matters; we have a deficit because Obama and the Democrats like to spend too much. You would think that people this upset about overspending would take the time to find out where the money is actually spent … but I suppose it’s easier to blame Obama, then pat themselves on the back for standing up for America. How many of these “patriots” even noticed the trillion dollars in

spending last December, mostly on defense (or more accurately, defense contractors) and special interests while our elected representatives railed against the “debt crisis?” How many wonder that we can spend billions on roads and schools and police in Afghanistan but cannot afford to invest in this country … how many bother to pay attention to anything outside their narrow little anti-Obama rhetoric? You know, we all have the right to be ignorant, but we do not have the right to bang away at the same ice that the rest of civilization is standing on. If we keep capitulating to this trend in our politics, keep giving way to the loudest common denominator, then we will all sink. In the meantime, the Bachmans and Limbaughs and Becks will all be standing on higher ground, still blaming the government, and the American people, for their own demise. F. John Lozen

Heist Dear Editor: Chimney Rock — just another government heist of our property. It is bad enough that we are all being ripped off by the government through the IRS, the Federal Reserve, the foreclosure fraud and other government “services,” but the issue regarding Chimney Rock becoming “national” is just the tip of the iceberg. What we need to realize is that it is unconstitutional for the federal government to own anything that is not ceded to it, period. This means that the federal government cannot just make believe it owns “federal” lands. These lands are our lands, not the governments, and we, the People, through the state, must simply take them back and tell the government to quit stealing. We have people qualified to take care of our lands for public use. The government is slowly strangling the use of these lands they are sucking up, and Chimney Rock is just one more step toward controlling what is ours. Let’s take back what is rightfully ours, and not give it to the federal government. Jeff Maehr

Review Dear Editor: In the spring of 2009, The Town of Pagosa Springs was contacted by Wal-Mart representatives regarding their concerns about the town’s land use codes relating to big box development. As a result, the town began the process of eliminating the land use codes that would regulate and protect residents from big box abuses. In the spring of 2010, 251 town residents made a decision that will affect Archuleta County for generations to come. Sadly, the majority of the negative impacts resulting from a big box store will be borne by the county residents that have had no say in the courting of Wal-Mart. The design review board and the town planning commission will hold a “Major Design Review” hearing at the Ross Aragon Community Center on May 22 at 5 p.m. Topics to be addressed include vacation of Aspen Circle Drive to accommodate Wal-Mart. The design review includes a 70-plus page document regarding drainage, this should be an obvious concern to all. Drainage from the Wal-Mart in this location will likely contain pollutants from fertilizers and other chemicals stored outside, impacting existing wetlands and Pinon Lake, not to mention flooding issues. The impacts on the larger community (Archuleta County)

•Off of 750 ml and 175 ml bottles• are extensive and include, but are not limited to: noise and air pollution from nighttime deliveries, light pollution, trash (plastic WalMart bags), increased crime, water pollution, abandoned Wal-Mart buildings (currently, 152 “ghost buildings” nationwide) and traffic issues. Therefore, the town should be asking for assurances in the form of a Community Benefits agreement to insure that the building if abandoned will be turned over to the community for a beneficial purpose. We already have an abandoned City Market to deal with. The town has the ability to use discretion in asking for assurances in these areas and should be encouraged by all county and town residents to do so. Everyone should be concerned about the fact that the big box regulations were eliminated in order to bring WalMart in. If they are going to be a good neighbor, they should have to answer to the people that will have their night skies violated, not just the 251 people who rescinded the land use codes! Please show up on the 22nd and make your opinions known! Juanalee Park

Research Dear Editor: What if we could personally participate in research that might help determine factors that cause or prevent cancer? What if our involvement, and that research, ultimately leads to the elimination of cancer as a major health problem for this and future generations? What if we could make it so just one family never has to hear the words “you have cancer?” Residents of our community have an unprecedented opportunity to participate in cancer research this year. Enrollment for the American Cancer Society’s third Cancer Prevention Study will be taking place at the La Plata County Relay For Life in Durango, at Ray Dennison Field on the campus of Fort Lewis College from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Friday, July 13. Individuals between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer and are willing to make a long-term commitment to the study are encouraged to sign up. Those who choose to enroll will complete a brief initial questionnaire and provide a waist measurement and a small blood sample. Participants will periodically be sent a follow-up questionnaire for the next 20 to 30 years. If you aren’t eligible to participate, you can still make a difference by telling everyone you know about Cancer Prevention Study-3. For more national information, visit www.cancer.org/cps3, email cps3@cancer.orgor call toll-free, (888) 604-5888. For more local information, visit cps3.laplatarelay. com or email laplatacps3@gmail. com. Remember: Research today for a cancer-free tomorrow. Nicole Pinkerton

multitudinous excuses for the spiking costs at the pump. Actually, drilling for oil, he said, is, “not a plan … that’s a bumper sticker.” Because “we can’t just drill our way to lower gas prices.” But apparently we can ooze our way. Yes indeed, Obummer’s answer is algae, “this fuel that we can grow right here in the United States. And that means greater energy security. That means lower costs. It means more jobs. It means a stronger economy.” And the lowering of the seas. Because oil is filthy, rotten, dirty, while algae is clean and pure and filled with potential. Pond scum in every tank! Obama bragged about “making new investments in the development of gasoline and diesel and jet fuel that’s actually made from (this) plant-like substance.” However, whenever he uses the word investments, prepare to be slimed. And sure enough, after the speech, reports Forbes, the Regime announced a $14 million grant to develop algae as a vehicle fuel. In the spirit of Solyndra, O’s “new investments” include $25 million of stimulus money to Algenol Biofuels, Obama’s favorite algae company. The Florida outfit is building an algae bio-refinery … that promises to streamline the process of extracting ethanol directly from algae. Taxpayer subsidies. Promises. Ethanol. Algae. What could possibly go wrong? Sapphire Energy, another algaebased biofuels developer, has absorbed $105 million in stimulus funds and loan guarantees. Some $25 million in stimulus grants and contracts also went to San Francisco-based Solazyme. And it goes without saying; Solazyme officials have contributed at least $360,000 to Democrats since 2007. Solazyme. Sounds like what you’d call radioactive ectoplasm in a sc-fi movie. Or a government front operation trafficking in sludge. They must have acquired Bob Dungan’s fifty-cubit quantum computer that he tucked away on Noah’s Ark ta git the correct highly active plasma formula. Needless ta say, the company lost $16.3 million in 2010 and has now started to focus on its line of beauty products and nutritional supplements. Solazyme isn’t likely to become in the foreseeable future a fuel-centered business. Also known as the Obama energy plan for America. After all, ya can’t burn coal, it’s gonna warm the globe; and that’s a “mortal sin,” if yer a “troglodyte.” God’s gonna git ya. Question: I wonder if the “troglodyte” in Arboles is gonna grow a little sea slag in his caverns pond? Ya gotta keep one’s pre-historic lair at a livable temp somehow. Jim Sawicki

Election Dear Editor: The results are in from the La Plata Electric Association Board of Directors Election. Bob Formwalt edged me (Kirsten Skeehan) by 50 votes out of 1,900. District 1 should be proud of the great turnout: 1,900 members voting is almost double from last year. Many thanks to all the folks who supported my campaign this year. We had folks walking neighbor-

hoods, creating flyers, making calls, creating videos, raising money, donating money and talking to anyone who would listen. I was pleased with the tone of our campaign and that our folks never went down the personal attacks and denigration path. I learned so much from the folks who worked so hard in this election. I am grateful for all the help and humbled by their skills, enthusiasm, passion and generosity. I encourage people to stay involved this year as LPEA deals with higher, restructured rates from their main electric vendor, Tri-State. Those of you who attended the annual meeting learned that Tri-State is raising the price of electricity to LPEA and LPEA has to in turn figure out how to best structure rates. It won’t be an easy job, and we as members need to make sure our voices are heard as the structure is determined. The other issues this year will be continued implementation of smart meters. This is a contentious issue for many. The board of directors meets in Durango every 3rd Wednesday of the month. On the La Plata website, www.LPEA.com, you can find contact information for each director. Please attend meetings, contact directors, and respond to surveys. Make sure the directors know what your desires and questions are. I am staying involved with LPEA — as a member-owner it is my right and my responsibility. Congratulations to Bob and thanks again to District 1 for a great turnout in the election. Kirsten Skeehan

Marriage Dear Editor: The United States of the Bible? I was raised as a citizen of the United States of America, a country of equal rights, equal freedoms, etc. At what point did this change to become the “United States of the Bible?” This has become dangerous territory for all of our citizens. For those of you who believe that the Bible dictates our constitutional rights and thus must be obeyed, I ask you to consider such as this: Just what part of the Bible do you choose to obey/follow? For instance, the Bible clearly states that a man who divorces his wife should not marry another as that would be an adulterous act. Also, there are negative comments regarding the mixing of races. There is no legal opposition to either of these to marry whom they love. While the Bible speaks of wives and husbands and marriage, where is it clearly stated that marriage is between one man and one woman, the oft-used quote? Hopefully, those who use the Bible as their guide for life can find it in their hearts to follow Christ’s greatest commandment: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind, with all your soul and your neighbor as yourself” (no ifs, ands or buts) — that is what He expects of us and as Americans; we are expected to honor equal rights for all citizens of the United States of America. Know you are loved. Patty Patton Tillerson

Miracle Dear Editor: The meeting last week concern-

ing national monument status for Chimney Rock was informative and thought provoking. In this time when all politicians are looking to do something positive, monument status looks to become a reality. At least, both Democrats and Republicans have come out for it. It’s a miracle. There is no question that monument status increases visitors to the area involved. Google it; it is universal across the country. The question is, “What are we going to do about it?” There has been a lot of discussion and debate recently regarding how to bring and hold visitors to our area. A big load of tourism draw is being handed to us on a silver platter. Is there a committee? Is anyone thinking about it? Are we going to wait and let Durango or Ignacio jump on it? We are the closest town to Chimney Rock and the town most associated with it, but any one of our neighbors spending some energy on infrastructure and promotion could change that “most associated” part. We need to start developing a plan and poking around for grants. Monument status is a big positive in the grant world. I can see a Chimney Rock exhibit and information center as something that would draw monument and other tourists and get them to spend more time and money here. Here is a truth: Chimney Rock is not a big place, as national monuments go. Even with infrastructure improvements, there will still be a limit on the number of people allowed in. Time allowed to tour the site will be relatively short because of its diminutive size. Tourists with a specific interest in the Anasazi/ Ancestral Puebloans will be looking for something else here associated with that interest. Cortez is a perfect example; they have a facility and evening native music and dancing. If we ignore this possibility, the tourists will be on their way west to spend that time and money. Pagosa has virtually nothing to show a rich Native American past that goes back 10,000 years. Why, I do not know, but the right time to start would certainly be now. Norm Vance

Scapegoat Dear Editor: Economic crisis and Chris. The economic crisis caused by the failure of financial institutions is creating havoc on the international scene. Protests and violent demonstrations have been triggered in many European countries against the imposition of austerity upon people. The effects of the crisis are also visible in Pagosa: empty stores and restaurants, less customers, an increase in consumption of alcohol and drugs, crime and domestic violence. Before the recession, seeing Chris sitting on the sidewalk was not perceived as a problem for businesses. Unfortunately, times are much harder now. But each human being deserves respect. Due to the fact that each of us has her/his own backpack of experiences, it is sometimes extremely difficult to understand another person. Is, by any chance, Chris being made a scapegoat for the recession? Diana Von der Muhll

Scrap it Dear Editor: Pagosa’s town manager and council members commissioned a study to determine the impact, positive or negative, of bringing Wal-Mart to our community. When the study was anything but positive, in their wisdom, the manager, council members and Mayor Aargon chose to move forward anyway. Now enter Bob Hart and his crew with their ill-advised plan to destroy the Jewel of Pagosa, Reservoir Hill. Mr. Hart and his TTC have convinced the manager, council and Mayor Aragon that this is a great project and would be financially beneficial to Pagosa. This same group called in Davey Pitcher for his expert advice on whether or not to purchase a used chair lift for their proposed Reservoir Hill project, and if, in his opinion, was the project financially feasible. Mr. Pitcher’s advice: “Don’t buy the chair lift,” and he essentially said, “scrap the entire project.” As with Wal-Mart, the “group” chose to ignore Davey Pitcher’s advice and major citizen disapproval, purchased the used chair lift, and continues on with their plans. If this group of city politicians and members of TTC have so much expertise in these matters, why commission studies and ask for expert advice they don’t follow? So far, Bob Hart is the only one to make any money out of this deal. Mr. Hart fell into a $7,000 windfall to haul the used, “not up to code” chair lift to Pagosa and throw in a heap to rust. I wonder, as the major proponent of the Reservoir Hill project, if Mr. Hart awarded this lucrative hauling job to himself, or was it put out to bid? Just wondering. Also, I find it very interesting that Mr. Hart’s friends from Fort Lewis College seemed to mimic Mr. Hart and the TTC findings regarding the feasibility of this project. Hmm. Actually, I believe it’s long past due that these elected and unelected politicians, along with TTC begin listening to the experts and citizens they supposedly represent and scrap the Reservoir Hill project.

Obituaries

Patrick Luis Cugnini Patrick L. Cugnini passed away Friday, May 4, 2012, in his home in Durango, Colo. He was 84. Pat was born June 21, 1927, to Mike and Mary Cugnini at the family home in Durango. He went to school on Florida Mesa in Durango through eighth grade, and he graduated from Reisch American Auctioneer School in 1945. Pat married Ramona J. Harris on Feb. 29, 1972. Pat started Navajo Trails Fiesta, now known as Fiesta Days, and ran it for many years. He auctioneered La Plata County Fair Sale for 40 years. He started managing Basin Livestock in 1951 and continued in that position for many years. In 1980, Pat started Hi Country Auction, which is still in business. Pat lived at his current residence on 3rd Avenue since 1967.

Ranching and farming in Durango, Pagosa and NAPI were his lifelong occupations. Pat was named Cattleman of the Year in 1975. Breeding and racing his thoroughbred horses was his passion. He match raced horses as a young man, and graduated into team roping and calf roping later in life. His family remembers foot races instigated by Pat, who happened to be very fast. Pat was always up for a game of pitch at the old Basin Pack, and always ready to make a wager on anything. His family said one of his favorite expressions was, “If you’re going to do it … do it right!” He is preceded in death by siblings Mike Cugnini, John Cugnini and Josephine Hopkins. He is survived by his wife Ramona, children Duane Cugnini and wife Debra, Steve Cugnini and Vicky Cugnini; sister Annie Jameson; grandchildren Chris Cugnini and Becky Cugnini and spouse Ty Hawkins, Kelly Bronson and Cole Suitt, 11 great-grandchildren, four great-great-grandchildren; and many cousins, nieces and nephews in the Zelletti, Montonati and Jameson families. All of Pat’s survivors live in the Four Corners area. The family invites everyone to join them for a celebration of Mr. Cugnini’s life at 4 p.m. Monday, May 21, at Ridgewood Events Center (north of the Breen salebarn, mile marker 16, Hwy. 140). In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Hospice of Mercy, 1 Mercado St., Suite 270, Durango, CO 81301.

Margaret Lindsey Wilson Margaret Lindsey Wilson, 88, of Pagosa Springs, Colo., passed away April 26, 2012, in Pagosa with her loving husband by her side on their 68th wedding anniversary. Born in Quanah, Texas, July 10, 1923, Margaret was one of four daughters. She wed James R. Wilson in 1944. Preceded in death by her eldest son, Robert Wilson, and both parents, she is survived by her husband, James R. Wilson; sister, LaVerne Scott; son, Rodney Wilson; grandchildren, Dean Stuart, Alice Louise, Laura Jean and James Patrick; as well as several greatgrandchildren, nephews, and great nieces and nephews. Margaret dedicated her life to public service through numerous charitable initiatives — giving unconditionally of her time, energy and talents. She was extremely active in all of the communities in which she resided, including Brownsville, Texas, where she served as president of the Junior Service League as well as president of the Hospital Auxiliary. Upon taking up part-time residence at their Colorado property on the Lower Blanco in 1975, Margaret began working in several areas of the community. Margaret and James were instrumental with the Childs family to begin the regular meetings of home and property owners that became the Lower Blanco Property Owners Association in the 1980s.

New fee schedule at Archuleta County Transfer Station By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

Residents using the Archuleta County Transfer Station will now pay less to deposit smaller bags of trash. With an amendment to the fee schedule Tuesday afternoon, the Board of County Commissioners added costs for small and medium bags, as well as the $3 charge that now stands for large bags. Now, bags that are .08 cubic yards or less may be dumped for $1, bags between .08 and .136 cubic yards will be $2 and larger bags will be $3. Containers will be present at the transfer station to determine what category a bag falls under, said David Sterner, the county’s new solid waste director who spearheaded the effort. Sterner said the sizing also helps to lessen the hardship and to be more fair to people who are unable to handle large bags. Recycling will continue to cost $1. “This is one area we’ve had a lot of conflict over,” said Commissioner Steve Wadley, adding that the new fees would help the county to be fair and equitable with its operations. Commisioner Clifford Lucero, too, reiterated that the change allows for the operation to be more fair and equitable, saying, “To this commission, that’s one of the most important things, too.” In addition to the fee schedule, the BoCC dealt with a number of items at its regular meeting Tuesday: • The board presented three, $1,000 Archuleta County Environmental Awareness Scholarships to Kelsy Sellers, Autumn Medlin and Tiffany Bachtel. To compete for the scholarship, which is funded through the county’s collection of aluminum cans, students must write an essay dealing with not only their future, but the future of recycling, as well as answering three questions. Lucero said the county received more than 12 applications for the scholarship, with the winning trio doing an “awesome job” on the essays. “It’s a great way to use recycling money,” Commissioner Michael Whiting said. • The commission approved the naming of an easement road and, in the process, highlighted questions of proper spelling and transparency. At previous agenda review sessions, County Clerk June Madrid pointed out that the road’s proposed name, Candle Light Court, was not properly spelled and would likely cause problems if the road were to be looked up later, stating that it should be Candlelight Court.

At the May 8 agenda review session, County Planner Cindy Schultz stated that the applicants had requested that the road name be two words, but that they might be OK with Candlelight as one word. With that, Lucero directed that the name be presented as one word (Candlelight Court), which prompted a caution from County Administrator Greg Schulte about making decisions in work sessions. “We’re not making a decision,” Lucero said. “Well, you kind of are,” Schulte responded. This Tuesday, the road was presented and approved as Candlelight Court, intersecting with County Road 982. • The BoCC approved a contract between the Department of Human Services and Lynell Wiggers in the amount of $4,095 to provide a seven-week relationship class as part of the DHS Pathways to Responsible Fatherhood grant program. • The Board approved a contract with the state Department of Local Affairs to accept a Community Development Block Grant in the amount of $125,000 to repair the roof at Casa de los Arcos. The contract comes with a 30year encumbrance stating that the county will pay back the funding should the property cease being used for affordable housing. • The board approved an update to the personnel policy manual that, among other things, caps the amount of sick leave employees can accumulate and increases the threshold of obtaining benefits from 20 hours per week to 30 hours per week. Under the update, county employees cannot accrue more than 480 hours of sick leave. Prior to the update, employees could go above that amount, with the extra hours paid out by the county at the end of each year for half of the employee’s hourly wage. Any affected employees will be paid for hours over the 480 cap this month. Part-time employees working fewer than 30 hours per week will no longer be eligible for benefits, with Human Resources Administrator stating that the change would affect only two county employees. The change in benefits also triggered a change to the county’s retirement program. • The board approved a letter of support for the San Juan Water Conservation District to receive funding in the amount of $25,000 from the Southwestern Water Conservation District for environmental work on the site of the proposed Dry Gulch Reservoir. The $25,000 would be used to offset the costs of an Environment Impact Study needed to assess U.S. Forest Service land that would be

affected by the high-water mark of the proposed 11,000-acre-foot reservoir. The county previously declined to take a stance on the matter until the Supreme Court dealt with the reservoir’s capacity, which was lowered from 35,000 acre feet. “This environmental work must take place now in order for the SJWCD to continue moving forward with the decades-long process of reservoir planning and construction,” the letter states. • The board members rearranged their meeting schedule for its fifth-Tuesday meetings. This month’s meeting on May 31 will now be held at the Chromo Fire Station at 6 p.m. The July 31 meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the Ross Aragon Community Center. The regular meeting scheduled for June 5 has been cancelled due to a commissioner conference. A special meeting will be held at 8:30 a.m. on June 4 at the CSU Extension Center. randi@pagosasun.com

treasurer. Margaret and James were happy to celebrate the completion of the Lower Blanco River Restoration project in 2011, a project they began with a group of like-minded individuals in the 1970s. During the 1980s, Margaret and James began avid pursuits of genealogy, which led to the discovery of Margaret’s great-grandfather and uncles who served in the Confederate Army. Margaret then joined the Daughters of the American Revolution, Sarah Platt Decker Chapter, of which she served as a vice regent. Margaret worked with the Pagosa Civic Club, even as a past president, which was the group behind the founding of the Ruby Sisson Library. Margaret had a real talent for cooking, knitting and hand-made crafts to which her family and community benefited from and treasured. Her family and her community were always lovingly attended to, above and beyond any reasonable expectations. She will be remembered as a caregiver with her constant assistance of others and tireless production of baby blankets, ornaments, and other hand-crafted trinkets for all those who surrounded her. Per Margaret’s wishes, a service will not be held. Burial will take place at Hilltop Cemetery, Pagosa Springs. A celebration of Magaret’s life will be held on June 2, 4-6 p.m. at the Ruby Sisson Library. Donations can be made in her memory to the DAR or the Sisson Library.

LEGISLATURE

Trials, tribulations and dedicated efforts It’s a challenging assignment to sum up the past week’s events, or non-events, as the case may be. I’d anticipated being finished midweek last week and headed home for the interim, but, instead, the Legislature’s been summoned back by the governor to a special session. The special session is to consider seven topics related to a number of bills that died on the House calendar as the clock ran out on our constitutional requirement that a session last no more than 120 days. I was concerned earlier about the backlog of bills to be heard before the end of the session and I suggested in an earlier column that we work late into the nights, if need be. We did work late some nights, but obviously, not enough. Returning to the topic of the regular session, though, I had guessed that politics would rule the day. That happened, yet we also did a lot of good work. The budget bill and the school

finance bill, the only two state constitutional “must do’s” each session, were passed with broad bipartisan support. Because Sen. Roberts’ of a mildly Report improved economy, cautious optimism in the budget process and the politically divided legislature, we were prudent in crafting the next budget. I’m very pleased with the session in terms of what I’d set out to work on this year. My persistent harping in committee, on the Senate floor and through introduced and debated resolutions that we develop the necessary fiscal discipline to stop backfilling the budget by taking severance tax funds from local governments and water projects was mostly

heeded this year. It helped to be able to describe to legislators from areas unfamiliar with energy and water development just what happens on the ground in a district like mine when those monies are transferred away from their intended purpose. Another goal I had was to work on reducing the costs of healthcare in Colorado and several bills I carried, aimed at doing that, were passed. One addresses getting a better handle on Medicaid fraud in our system, another expands the use of assisted living facilities over nursing homes when appropriate, and the third encourages innovation in new payment methods that reward health value over volume. All of these new healthcare efforts will need monitoring and follow-up, but we’ve got a chance to bend the notorious cost curve in healthcare spending with healthier patients. I aim to continue seriously pursuing these

goals. Last, but not least, is the passage of the bill eliminating the towing operator bond and improving the existing regulatory process in that industry. If you’ve been following that saga, it’s proof that constituent contact does indeed make a difference and I’ve got some great people in my district to prove that. We went through our share of trials and tribulations to get to this point, but with dedicated efforts from tow operators, certain fellow legislators and the governor’s administration, we ended up with a much better situation than what was in place at the end of last session. I’ve enjoyed working with my Republican caucus; we exchange ideas, learn from each other and find that we share more common ground than not. Getting to know my Democratic colleagues in the Senate better was another positive. Now, on to the special session, and home!

Last-minute maneuvers as the session ends The actions taken on the night before the last day of the second session of the 68th General Assembly on the floor of the Colorado House of Representatives was quite different to say the least. No one, including all of the staff and all of the lobbyists with years of institutional knowledge, had ever seen anything like it. As usual, in the waning days of the session, we were working through a big pile of bills, most that could have easily been calendared earlier in the session. Any bill must get through second reading debate and approval on the day before the last day because second and third readings cannot take place on the same day. There were several bills that had come over from the Senate that were scheduled for second readings. Many of these bills had been heard and approved earlier that day by appropriate commit-

tees. These bills did not have time to be calendared and were put on a list of Special Orders. One such bill Rep. Brown’s was the bill Report authorizing civil unions in Colorado, SB 02. As is customary, the Majority Leader started the second readings calendar by moving to proceed with General Orders, and a vote was taken which failed because the Democrats and two Republicans wanted to bypass General Orders and go directly to Special Orders to debate the civil unions bill. To me, it is only fair to start with the bills first in line. The same motion was made and failed about four times in a

row. We had plenty of time to get through General Orders and debate the Special Orders, and this procedural prank wasted valuable time. Frustrated, Speaker Frank McNulty recessed the House and met with the minority leader privately. The House was then called back to order, and the motion for General Orders was passed unanimously. With Rep. Jerry Sonnenberg in the chair of the Committee of the Whole, we made decent time on second readings and were within three bills of hearing my bill, SB 116, which outlaws the addictive designer drug “bath salts,” when one of the Democrats made an unprecedented procedural move and made a motion to “rise and report.” This motion means that all debate on second readings is halted and the House votes on what has been done as the Committee of the Whole. I have only seen this

motion made by the Majority Leader or the Assistant Majority Leader. It was another attempt by Democrats to move into Special Orders. Chairman Sonnenberg immediately recessed the Committee of the Whole, and nothing happened as time ran out and bills not heard on second readings died. So went civil unions and outlawing “bath salts” as well as the water projects bill that is so important to southwest Colorado. The last day was spent amending Senate Bills to incorporate and pass bills that were lost the night before. “Bath salts” were put into another bill and will thankfully be illegal in Colorado. The governor called a special session, and civil unions and the water projects bill will be heard then. Stay tuned for the rest of the story.

A8 — The Pagosa Springs SUN — Thursday, May 17, 2012

Grant n Continued from front

“(O)f the 17 applications, only 8 are recommended for funding, and none of those are slated to receive their full requests.” After alerting Dickhoff that the town’s application had been denied, Craker’s letter went on to provide reasons why GOCO had turned down the request. “When compared to other recreational development projects ... we found this project to be less compelling and less urgent,” Craker’s letter stated. “The town presents a minimal match (money required to secure the grant), which is understandable for a town of Pagosa’s size, but still leaves it at a competitive disadvantage to other projects.” In the “Reviewer Comments” section of the letter, it was noticed that, “Match is too low; perhaps the project is too ambitious.” In fact, that point was raised in the March 1 edition of The SUN. In that article, it was noted that, last December, Dickhoff had requested that council consider allocating a match for a $2 million GOCO River Corridors Initiative Grant — a substantially more modest request. However, by February, the town had set its sites on a much larger

chunk of money and Dickhoff returned to council with a more ambitious request: Commit to spending well over $300,000 a year, for the next three years, in order to meet minimal match requirements for GOCO funding. Combining the town’s money with the GOCO grant, the total amount to be spent on the river corridor improvements (following Dickhoff’s February presentation) would have amounted to nearly $8 million. Citing various issues with certain aspects of the project, Craker’s letter suggested that the town consider phasing in some features at a later date, seeking funding for other features through alternative granting sources and seeking out more partnerships to fund the project’s overall scope. “Doesn’t seem very urgent,” another comment read, adding, “I think some parts could wait on funding and more partnerships.” GOCO did not close the door on future funding of the project with Craker’s letter stating, “We are confident that we can work with the Town to identify the most urgent and impactful pieces of this project, help them identify other potential funders (such as

economic development grants) and phase construction of the most recreational components with a series of GOCO grants.” It was that suggestion of possible future funding that Pagosa Town Manager David Mitchem held onto when considering the future of the project. “We’re going to have a conversation with GOCO staff,” Mitchem said yesterday. “If we’re next in line, we’ll proceed. If we’re deep in the queue, we may have to put it aside for awhile, unfortunately.” Saying that conversation would most likely take place in late June or early July, Mitchem said, “We’re hoping to find out what will make us more competitive for another round of grant funding.” Asked if council would be asked to consider the second reading of Ordinance 770 at today’s council meeting, Mitchem replied, “As it stands now, yes.” Predicated on secured GOCO funding, Ordinance 770 not only commits the town to $5,000 in earnest money to hold properties desired for the river corridor — money that could be lost if the town fails to agree to purchase those properties — but also puts the town on the hook for $340,000 if it agrees

quarters, trending downwards in line with the national economy. In 2008, unemployment numbers for the county began showing a steady rise as sales tax collections exhibited a converse drop. What is interesting is that local unemployment numbers show a several-month lag following a significant drop in reported sales tax receipts. Likewise, the recent trend in rising sales tax collections has been followed with an improvement in local unemployment numbers. The relationship between the two numbers stands to reason. As the recession hit in late 2007, almost exclusively caused by a global banking collapse driven by inveterate bets on ill-conceived housing loans, the construction sector of the local economy (which had accounted for more than 15 percent of local income prior to 2008) ground to a halt. As a result, area builders, contractors and construction workers found themselves without a paycheck — and unable to sink dollars into the local economy. With fewer dollars circulating in the local economy, many area merchants and service providers responded to decreased demand by trimming their workforce (or, in the worst case, closing their doors altogether), further adding to unemployment roles and showing diminished receipts for sales tax collections. The opposite is true as a boost in the number of local paychecks leads to an increased demand for local goods and services, which, in turn, adds more jobs to the economy as area businesses hire extra help in response to that increased demand. That correlational trend of increasing sales tax collections and decreasing unemployment numbers began in mid-2011, following more than two-and-a-half years of extremely hard times in the area. Meanwhile, the TTC’s reported rise in lodgers tax collections may or may not have had an effect on the recent trend in increased sales tax collections: Dollars collected on overnight stays in the area have proved a mixed bag when held up in relation to sales tax revenues reported by the CDR. For instance, this month’s CDR

to the purchase. Ordinance 770 (in two options approving the property purchase) posits, “Approving the execution of a Purchase Agreement and $5,000 in earnest monies on May 17, 2012 and if Awarded a GOCO grant for property acquisitions by June 20, 2012, Approving the execution of a Promissory Note and an additional $29,000 in earnest money by June 20, 2012 for the purchase of 180 S. 6th Street and 151 S. 5th Street for $340,000.” The phrase, “(I)f Awarded a GOCO grant for property acquisitions,” presents a problem for council, however. Regarding the second reading of an ordinance, section 3.9.C of the town’s Home Rule Charter states, “An ordinance may be approved, approved with minor amendments, disapproved, continued for substantive amendments or continued for further consideration before taking final action on second reading.” Considering that a GOCO grant will not be forthcoming to subsidize a property purchase, securing those funds as a condition for allo-

stated in numerous presentations of the plan) to increase overnight stays in the area. In those presentations, the TTC has claimed a substantial financial benefit to the town due to increased overnight stays and that increase would result from tourists electing to extend their visits due to the recreational amenities offer on Reservoir Hill. According to the TTC’s numbers, “expected results” of ramped-up tourism resulting from those amenities would provide an additional 8 percent in sales tax revenues to government coffers. CDR reports appear to contradict the TTC’s assumption. While last year’s 6.07 increase in lodgers tax (relative to 2011) closely matches the 6.84-percent increase in year-end sales tax collections (up only 2.31 percent if subtracting out Transportation and Warehousing), a direct relationship between increased tourism and sales tax can only be made if it is assumed that other market sectors saw almost no growth in 2011. That assumption would be dead wrong, however, as 11 out of 21 sectors in the area charted by the CDR showed growth — some substantially — during the past year. While there is little doubt that tourism not only provides a financial benefit to the area but commands a sizable slice of the market sector pie (along with employment, support and other factors), claims made by the TTC are not only unsubstantiated, but appear overstated when held up to numbers provided by the Colorado Department of Revenue. Relative to the sales tax and lodgers tax reports delivered since late2007, March numbers presented by the CDR and the TTC suggest a glimmer of sunshine for a local economy that has struggled for several years in the shadow of recession. However, while both lodgers tax and sales tax have shown a positive trend for two to three quarters, connecting the two remains problematic as far the assumed benefit of tourism on the local economy. While Pagosa Country doubtlessly benefits from its sizeable tourism industry, the extent of that impact remains in question. jim@pagosasun.com

revenues (see related story). That policy has kept the town at 10 percent below 2008 expenditure levels, with surpluses going to reserves. Again, the town has adopted a position that those reserves (above sixmonth operating reserves) would be used to match potential grants. The town has sufficient funds to purchase the two properties named in Ordinance 770, should council decide that acquiring those properties is an urgent enough priority. That urgency was not identified in Monday’s GOCO letter, however, providing one of the reasons for not awarding the town $6 million. While GOCO has made it clear that it has left the door open for future river corridor improvement funding, the organization hinted that any later funding would depend on the town rethinking the project. What is less clear is how vital property acquisitions are to that project and how the council will proceed on Ordinance 770 today, at noon, in Town Hall. jim@pagosasun.com

Marijuana n Continued from front

report shows sales tax collections for the Accommodation and Food Services sector in March up 14.87 percent, a figure that’s extremely close to the TTC’s lodgers tax. Lodging establishments pay a 4-percent lodgers tax in town (2 percent in the county) on top of the 4-percent area sales tax, with the former funding either the TTC (from town revenues) or the visitor center (from county revenues). However, as reported in the April 19 edition of The SUN, a 19.14 percent increase in lodgers tax reported by the TTC was accompanied by a just 0.96 percent increase in the Accommodation and Food Services sector reported by the CDR, with sales tax up just 0.53 percent from the same month last year. By the same token, the Retail Sales sector was up just 1.1 percent in February over the previous year, while, in March, that same market sector reported a 5.67 jump. In fact, while sales tax receipts have been up the last seven months and lodgers tax receipts have shown nine months of record collections, on a month-to-month basis, the two numbers exhibit a relationship only during one month (October 2011), where both stand at around 6 percent. Conversely, a 29-percent increase reported by the TTC last December well exceeded the 9.54-percent increase in sales tax for that month — a month that also saw almost $50,000 in additional revenue from previously uncollected taxes in the Transportation and Warehousing sector. Subtracting out those collections, November would have been down 1.37 percent relative to the same month in 2010. That same month showed a 7.68 percent increase in the Accommodation and Food Services sector, more than 21 percentage points lower than the numbers reported by the TTC. Nevertheless, the TTC has persisted with claims regarding a relationship between the increase in lodging and a boost in sales tax collections. In recent months, the TTC has presented plans for developing recreational amenities on Reservoir Hill (see related article), with the primary goal being (as the TTC has

cations towards a promissory note and property purchase seems to fit the definition of a “substantive amendment” enough to suggest that Ordinance 770 would require a continuance in order to amend language that sets GOCO funding as a precondition for subsequent real estate processes. If council deems amending language in the ordinance sufficient enough to necessitate a continuance, the next question would be, how will the town afford the $340,000 price tag for the properties? In 2010, the town received an unexpected $1 million windfall when the Colorado Department of Revenue paid on previously unpaid sales tax. The town promptly stashed those funds into reserves, split equally between the General and Capital Improvement Funds, agreeing to use those funds as matches to leverage potential future grants. In addition, current budget policy has allowed the town to sock away over $1 million in reserves on the back of increasing sales tax

was next to comment, beginning by saying that he is the most conservative commissioner personally, but that, since Colorado allows medicinal marijuana legally, he now must throw personal bias “out the window” and be responsible with carrying out state law. Wadley, too, noted concern over the discrepancy between state and federal laws concerning the substance. Commissioner Clifford Lucero, who was on the BoCC when it approved medical marijuana regulations for the county in 2010 (then instituted a moratorium on new operations), noted that, when the BoCC dealt with the matter in 2010, it accomplished moving existing operations out of residential neighborhoods — an important step. Lucero also stated that the board is, “being very, very cautious,” with that caution needing to continue. With a motion and second in favor of the moratorium, the floor was opened to public comment. Audience member Jeff Heinstzleman was first up, noting that he has been watching the progress in the county and that he has, “been disappointed in leadership representing the people of the county.” Heinstzleman said the county has done nothing but enact bans, with the current ban to wait on the federal government. “Now you’re going to ban business again?” he asked, also citing the monopoly in the county. After a brief history on the use of marijuana as a medicine, Heinstzleman told the commissioners he wished they would listen to people and educate themselves, ending, “It has stayed in this state forever.” Wadley responded to the com-

ment by saying that the BoCC had met with the Colorado Attorney General about a year ago and discussed medical marijuana, adding that the validity of its use was not in question, but the conflict between the state and federal government was. “At some point, there needs to be some type of agreement between those agencies,” Wadley said. Lucero, too, noted that the substance is an important medicine for some, but that the BoCC needed to be responsible and can’t give the green light to all dispensaries. Whiting, too, responded, noting that the commission can end the moratorium before May 2013 should new information arise and the county is doing what can be done on the subject. “Any county that allows medical marijuana to be sold is breaking federal law,” Whiting said. “This board is willing to do that.” Next, audience member Jim Huffman asked if there are any pending court cases working on the disparity between state and federal laws. “Yes,” Starr said, adding, “I’m not going to respond further.” Two owners of a Durango dispensary, Aaron Miles and Jonny Redding, were the next to take the floor, pointing out that all dispensaries are guided to operate responsibly under regulations from the Department of Revenue and HB 1284, adding that they contribute to the job, sales tax and real estate sectors with their business. The pair also suggested that allowing additional shops in Archuleta County would be fair and equitable, prompting Starr to ask the pair how they would handle the moratorium and suggesting

they look at the regulations currently in place in the county, then speak with him. Last up was audience member Leanne Richey, who said she believed the BoCC was approaching the situation in the best interest of the county. “When push comes to shove, the DEA is going to win,” Richey suggested, adding that it was important to move operations out of areas where children could be endangered. After applauding the BoCC for their cautious approach, Richey ended by noting that she was in favor of the “compassionate use” of medical marijuana. With no further public comment, the BoCC extended the moratorium until May of 2013 with the additional requirement that Starr give a quarterly update on the matter. randi@pagosasun.com

Broom-wielding employee foils convenience store holdup By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

Stern words and a mop were enough to deter two would-be robbers Sunday night at a local convenience store. Authorities are now seeking help to identify the two suspects. According to Det. Scott Maxwell of the Pagosa Springs Police Department, two individuals dressed in black and wearing ski masks and baseball caps entered the Everyday Store, located at 300 East Pagosa St., shortly after 9:30 p.m. Sunday. The store’s clerk reported that he was mopping when the two individuals walked in. One of the would-be robbers then allegedly stated, “I want the cash,” before pulling out a five-inch folding knife and continuing, “You’re getting robbed.” The clerk’s response then apparently scared the individuals out of the store. The clerk reportedly pointed the mop handle toward the intruders and responded, “Are you joking? Get the (expletive) out of the store.”

“Apparently they were kind of intimidated by the way he wielded that mop,” Maxwell said. The would-be robbers then left the store and headed east on foot, Maxwell said. The clerk pushed the silent alarm and called 911. From the time the men entered the store until they retreated took less than 20 seconds, Maxwell said. Officer Brooks Brown was dispatched to the store at 9:45 p.m. and was advised that the suspects were fleeing the scene on foot, Maxwell said. Upon his arrival, Brooks was unable to locate the suspects. Now, the PSPD is working to identify and catch the individuals. Maxwell said the suspect who spoke and had the knife is described as being approximately 5-feet-11 and weighing an estimated 220 pounds. The second suspect is described as being about 6-foot-3 and weighing an estimated 160 pounds. Maxwell said the men are believed to be Native American or Hispanic and may be in their early 20s. Anyone with information is asked to contact Maxwell at 264-4151, Ext. 241. randi@pagosasun.com

Positive turnout for Chimney Rock National Monument meeting By Lindsey Bright Staff Writer

The parking lot at the fairgrounds was packed. The room, filled with chairs, was standing room only. Though the public session to give input on Chimney Rock Archaeological Area being designated a national monument was a full two hours, with questions cut off so special guests could make their plane, it was not the words of the audience, but the numbers that spoke the loudest. Special guests Sen. Michael Bennet, Rep. Scott Tipton, USDA Undersecretary Harris Sherman and Regional Forester for the Rocky Mountain Region Dan Jiron were in attendance during last Friday’s listening session and all seemed overwhelmed by the strong community showing. “This is the largest town meeting I’ve seen in my years on the job,” Bennet told the crowd at the Archuleta County Extension Building. “This is awesome to see a full house on a Friday afternoon,” Jiron said. “This great turnout will leave an impression,” Sherman said. “So many people being here on a Friday afternoon demonstrates how important this is to the community,” said Tipton. San Juan National Forest Supervisor Mark Stiles acted as mediator for the session. “Chimney Rock has a deep spiritual connection that’s apparent to me as I visit with today’s Pueblo people,” Stiles told the crowd. The four special guests, along with Pagosa District Ranger Kevin Khung, Archuleta County Commissioner Clifford Lucero and Mayor Ross Aragon were on the panel, and available to answer questions regarding the different avenues that could lead to the national monument designation: legislation or presidential action through means of the Antiquities Act.

Bennet, who is working together with Tipton to pass the legislation, said, “There is nothing wrong with the legislation. The Senate is having a hard time moving anything forward.” He hinted that, perhaps, Tipton would have an easier time moving the bill through in the House. “We will pass this legislation,” Tipton told the crowd, and added, “Not only will it pass, but it will pass with big numbers. The time has come and it is appropriate.” Yet, it was Sherman who pushed, and had backing from the majority of the audience, for designation through process of the Antiquities Act. The reason for the use of the Antiquities Act would be the hope of speeding up the legislative process. President Theodore Roosevelt first used the act to proclaim Devil’s Tower a national monument in 1906. Grand Canyon would later be preserved by this act in 1907. In more recent years, President Obama has used the Antiquities Act to designate Fort Monroe and Fort Ord as national monuments. Sherman, speaking on behalf of the Forest Service, said, “We don’t care how it gets done, we just want to see it get done.” Sherman added that this designation would not only preserve Chimney Rock as a historical, cultural and sacred landscape, but it would also help put Pagosa Country on the map, which in turn would increase tourism and hopefully encourage visitors to Pagosa to stay in the area longer than just half a day. Chandler Sanchez, chairman for the All Indian Pueblo Council, representing 20 pueblos in the Southwest, spoke in support of the national monument designation, emphasizing that throughout this entire process, “Many sacred sites are traded in the name of economic value without viewing it as a sacred being,” Sanchez said, however, as this process continues, he emphasizes the need for the Pueblo people to be kept abreast and involved in

the process. Throughout the two-hour session, people from the community representing churches, archaeologists, tribal nations, environmentalists, economic interests and landowners stood up to either say or read words of support. In the two-hour time span, only one man stood to raise a voice in opposition of national monument status. “No, no, no, absolutely no,” the man said, not giving his name. His view was based on owning land that would be affected by the designation. Terry Sloan, speaking on behalf of the Southwest Native Cultural Center, said his organization supported the designation. “The main reason,” Sloan said, “is to protect the site. We’ll be gone in 1,000 years, but we’d like the site to still be there.” Sloan went on to explain how he had dreams of being a young man and going to school at Chimney Rock 1,000 years ago. Deborah Gangloff, president and CEO of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center, spoke on behalf of the center, reiterating the center’s support of using the Antiquities Act to obtain the sought-after designation; the reason — the glacial pace of the both the Senate and House in passing any legislation. Tipton and Bennet left the crowd with the assurance that their desire and support had been heard. “I will push to see this designation happen,” Tipton said. Sherman also assured members of the audience that their concern and their message had been heard and would be taken back to President Obama. “Thank you on behalf of President Obama,” Sherman said. As of press time, no additional government action has been taken with regard to Chimney Rock. However, Jiron said that once motion begins, action will have a fast time frame.

Pagosa biomass project still waiting for USFS decision By Lindsey Bright Staff Writer

When will a decision be reached on the Pagosa Area Biomass Longterm Stewardship Contract? That is a question without an answer. “I can’t give a time frame,” said Regional Forester Dan Jiron. Along with San Juan National Forest Supervisor Mark Stiles and USDA under secretary Harris Sherman, Jiron was taken to see some of local businessman J.R. Ford’s biomass harvesting sites. During the trip, Ford explained to the men the positive points of biomass harvesting and biomass energy, how

it would benefit the local community of Pagosa Springs by creating jobs, and create a healthier forest in the wake of disease and beetle epidemic. “I am very positive about the work,” Jiron said in regard to his visit to Ford’s trial area. Jiron continued to say that since he is fairly new to the job, being appointed by Chief Tom Tidwell in early February of this year, he has been quickly trying to educate himself on all the issues of the Rocky Mountain region, including those of the Pagosa Ranger District. “I am very optimistic,” Jiron said, adding, “It is a very positive project, and I will be working on

it. It is good for the forest and the community.” Jiron reiterated that he could not make any promises as far as a timeline, but he said that it would be at the top of his radar. Senator Michael Bennet had toured the area recently as well. “What I know about it, it sounds like an excellent, worthwhile project,” Bennet said. Representative Scott Tipton commented that he saw this biomass project as part of the “solution.” Even if the Pagosa Area Biomass Long-Term stewardship contract, which does not guarantee Ford as the chosen contractor, is the solution to creating a healthy, resilient

and sustainable forest, the timeframe has already been extended longer than anticipated. The Forest Service was supposed to have made a decision and awarded the stewardship contract to the chosen bidder on Nov. 6, 2011. The reason for the delay has been the lack of funds. “The Forest Service does not have a surplus of funds,” said Pagosa Ranger District forester Steve Hartvigsen. Whether or not the funds will be found to push this project is yet to be seen; however, Ford said he feels positive about the project moving forward quickly after his conversations with both Sherman and Jiron. lindsey@pagosasun.com

CSM begins study of geothermal resource !"#$%& By Jim McQuiggin Staff Writer

Since Monday, local residents may have noticed young folks in orange work vests manipulating strange machines and getting a lay of the land. The science nerds are upon us. In fact, between 85 and 90 people will be working in Pagosa Country until Memorial Day Weekend, with graduate students and faculty from the Colorado School of Mines studying various characteristics of the area’s geothermal aquifer. Following a meeting last October between CSM faculty and local representatives, the school’s geophysics department determined that the area would be a good fit for training and providing field experience for students. In return, the area will receive invaluable data from the most comprehensive study yet conducted on the aquifer. That research, led by Dr. Terry Young (head of the Geophysics department), Dr. Michael Batzle and Dr. André Revil (both professors of

geophysics) involves two primary studies: deep seismic profiles made of a portion of the aquifer and passive, “geoelectrical methods” of data collection — “including selfpotential, electrical resistivity, and induced polarization” — that Revil describes on his website. As far as deep seismic profiling, Young said last fall that, “The technique is very similar to medical technology, such as an MRI or a CAT scan.” What Young meant was that significantly large sound waves are directed beneath the earth’s surface, allowing a computer to translate the received echoes as shapes and depths (much in the way that an MRI — Magnetic Resonance Imaging — provides three dimensional images of a patient). Those sound waves are generated through the use of so-called “thumper trucks” — 60,000-pound pieces of equipment that generate controlled seismic energy. Through both reflection and refraction, seismic surveys of the subterranean topography are achieved

as seismic waves, travelling through a medium such as water or layers of rocks, are recorded by receivers, such as geophones or hydrophones. Revil’s research, on the other hand, measures electrical signals associated with the movement of water in porous, fractured materials to locate the movement and characteristics of geothermal water. During last October’s meeting, Gerry Huttrer, president of Geothermal Management, Inc. and lead on research currently underway regarding the hydrologic characteristics of the aquifer, stated that the team’s findings would not only supplement the data his team hopes to generate, but added that, “This research would normally come at a great expense and this is a great opportunity to get this done for far less than what you would normally be paying.” As that research winds up, local residents will have an opportunity to hear preliminary results from the various studies conducted over the next week-and-a-half. On May 21, local middle school

and high school students with an interest in geothermal will have an opportunity to view the testing. On Thursday, May 24, at 7:30 p.m. at the high school, the CSM students will make a community presentation on their experience in Pagosa and what they will do with the data collected here. Provided a positive experience in Pagosa Country and a need for further research, the CSM group could return next year for another round of study. If the local geothermal resource is, as many have hypothesized, a key to future economic development in the area, the generosity and hospitality of area residents won’t just benefit several dozen graduate students, researchers and professors — it will, most likely, end up with the success of Pagosans for generations to come. Thus, a hearty and genuine Pagosa welcome benefits everyone involved, so show a science nerd some love during the next week or so. Like it says on the T-shirt, “Nerds Rule!” jim@pagosasun.com

Pirate boys take league title, state meet this week By Lindsey Bright Staff Writer

The numbers are small. The members are strong, and their will is unshakable. The Pagosa Pirate track team, both boys and girls, worked hard throughout the 2012 season and their times, their placings, their records after the Intermountain League meet held in Bayfield last Saturday show it. The boys, after coming in second to Bayfield previously this season, ramped up their game, focused on doing their best, and came out with a first-place win. The girls, with a team of 12, plagued by injuries and illness, placed third. This year, it was also two Pirates who took home the Athlete of the Year Award in the league. Senior Carlos Brinkmann was voted Male Athlete of the Year, and junior Toni Stoll was voted Female Athlete of the Year. Both athletes had a year of personal records and first-place finishes with second place far, far behind. In addition to the accolades and the wins, Pirates also qualified for the state meet. The boys 4x200, 4x400 and 4x800 relays qualified for state. Brinkmann qualified in the 1,600 meters. “I think the boys can crack the top five in the 4x800,” Coach Scott White said, adding that the boys know they are the big time underdogs, currently ranked 18 in the state 3A classification. “They’ve never run to their full potential,” White said, and if they do, he thinks they have a real shot at stepping up on that podium. All in all, six girls qualified for state, which is half of the team. Senior Katie Armbrecht will compete in shot put and discus. Stoll will compete in the 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles, triple jump (currently ranked second in 3A), and long jump. Junior Gabby Pajak will compete in the 100 hurdles, triple jump and long jump.

Senior Carlos Brinkmann runs amidst the pack of contenders at last week’s Intermountain League track meet. Brinkmann soon broke free from the pack to win the two mile race with a time almost 20 seconds faster than the nearest rival. Brinkmann was also voted Male Athlete of the Year by the coaches at the meet.

Sophomore Taylor Strohecker will compete in high jump; currently she is ranked second in Class 3A. “This has been one of the most satisfying years coaching,” said White. It may have been a small team but, according to White, the members’ commitment to the team, their willingness to practice and be flexible, their ability to come together, made them a team to be reckoned with. The boys worked together, as a family, and came through, sweeping all the relays except the 4x100, in which they placed second. However, White added, the boys were disqualified from the 4x400 due to throwing the baton on the track in excitement of having won the big race. Brinkmann took first place in

the 1,600 meter run with a time of 4 minutes, 47.44 seconds, and was first in the 3200 m with a 10.35.89. Sophomore Jeremy Hortsman placed second in the 100 meters with a 11.97. Junior Garek Erskine took third in the 200 meters and, in a surprise move, placed first in long jump with a 19-11 jump, well above what he had been jumping all year both at meets and in practice. White says the jump came out of nowhere. “The boys scored points where they needed,” White said. Junior Daniel Sloan, who came to the team late into the season, placed first in the 400 meters with a time of 52.45. “He has really helped this team out a lot,” White said of Sloan, add-

ing how happy he was to have him on the squad. Sophomore Colton Polezynski and freshman Tate Drane both ran another great 800 meter runs, winning first and second respectively. The race took place after a 30-minute lightning and rain delay. According to White, when the runners took to the track, both the winds and the rain picked up again. Polezynski won with 2.09.84, and Drane was second with a 2.13.3. Freshman Creede Wylie placed third in discus with a throw of 119-1. Sloan placed third in high jump with a jump of 5-8. Polezynski, the “dreadlock athlete,” took first in javelin with a throw of 115-5. Junior Dean Hampton placed first in triple jump with a 40-5.5, and Erskine was close behind with a 3910.5 leap. The girls, with only eight ablebodied competitors, really joined together and brought their A game to the track. “I don’t know if I can be more proud,” White said of the girls’ team. Stoll won every event she competed in and also set personal records in each event. Stoll placed first in the 100 hurdles with a 16.79, first in the 300 hurdles with a 48.11, first in long jump with a 16-8.5 and first in triple jump with a 37-11.5. Pajak was close behind, though competing with an injured ankle. Pajak placed second in the long jump with a 16-6. Strohecker placed first in high jump with a 5-2. The girls also won the 800 sprint medley, which was not expected under the circumstances. White says that going into the league meet, the girls were seated 14th in the state. Kelsey Sellers was sick, with an infection and fever. The night before, White decided it would be best to scratch the race. He called

Sellers and told her — she was sick, they had already qualified, it just wasn’t worth it. Sellers, though, did not agree. “She said no, I’m committed to this team,” White recalled. White didn’t think they would run their best; he thought they’d finish the race and qualify for state with a previous time. However, White was surprised. The girls stepped up to the plate, illness and injury with them, and ran one second faster than their previous best time, barely qualifying them for state. The state championship meet in Denver starts today and goes through Saturday. lindsey@pagosasun.com

Outdoors Protect your home — create defensible space By Bill Trimarco Special to The SUN

Wildfire has been a fact of life in the southwest for centuries. Most of the flora and fauna here have adapted to life that involves periodic fires. During the last 100 years, humans have altered this system in radical ways. After the heavy logging of the early 20th century, an era of fire suppression was begun. Without the periodic cleansing of fire, we now have large tracts of stunted trees, too close together with heavy undergrowth. This is a fuel load situation that did not exist in a naturally healthy forest. Over the last few decades, numerous subdivisions have been carved into these forests, putting many lives and properties at risk from wildfire. There are actions we can take, however, to minimize that risk. The two things that have had the greatest ef-

fect on a home’s ability to withstand wildfire are the composition of the roof and the creation of defensible space around the home. Composition shingles or metal material with Class A fire resistance ratings are preferred roof coverings, but what can we do around the outside of the home? Defensible space is the area around a structure that has been created or altered to slow the spread of wildfire towards the home. This space can also keep a home fire from spreading to the forest. The Colorado State Forest Service divides defensible space into three zones, the sizes of which can vary based on the structure, slope and vegetation, but the following are some general guidelines. Zone 1, extends 15 feet out from the outside edge of the structure. This is a very critical area. If the

building siding is flammable (wood, log, etc.) plant nothing within 3 to 5 feet of the structure. Decorative gravel can look good without the dangers of bark or wood chips. If the siding is not combustible, low growing plants with wide spacings are acceptable, but not under windows or near crawl space vents. Make sure there are no continuous avenues of grasses leading up to these plantings. Firewood should not be stored near a structure and there should be nothing flammable located or stored under your decks. Chimneys and vents should be screened. It is best to remove all trees from Zone 1. If you keep any in this zone, treat them as part of the structure and extend the zone accordingly. Trim any branches below 10 feet in height and make sure there is no undergrowth to serve as a ladder for fire to climb up into the tree’s crown. Vegetation, dead leaves and branches will always need attention in this area so close to the structure. Zone 2 is the buffer zone between Zone 1 and the rest of the forest. It usually extends 75 to 125 feet out, but slope and other factors can influence that. Mitigation efforts in Zone 2 will be greatest closest to the structure and will lessen towards the further edges of the zone as it blends into Zone 3. Thin trees and shrubs to obtain at least 10 feet between crowns (measured from the farthest branches, not the stems). Steep slopes require more space. Prune branches 10 feet up the trees and remove ladder fuels directly below them. Remove dead trees and snags. If leaving any for wildlife, one or two per acre is sufficient. Mow tall grasses and make sure that shrubs cannot be

used as a ladder under your healthy trees. It is recommended that firewood and propane tanks be located at least 30 feet from the structure with a 10-foot clear area around either one. The slash you remove can be piled and burned or chipped. While chipping does leave the fuel in the zone, it is on the ground where it can be more easily controlled if it does ignite and smolder. Zone 3 extends from the edge of your defensible space out to your property line. Typical healthy forest management practices are the norm in this zone. Select thinning will remove diseased or stunted trees and give others more space, as well as water and nutrients, to grow. We have become so accustomed to seeing overgrown forests that we can lose sight of the fact that healthy Ponderosa forests historically had only 50 or 60 trees per acre. Pruning and mowing are usually not done in this zone, but could always be used. Wildfire mitigation practices have been proven to save lives and homes, even in cases where the neighbors did not mitigate. Many insurance companies have realized this and are requiring wildfire mitigation before they will issue or renew homeowner’s policies. It is never too late to begin taking steps to protect your structure and even if the task seems overwhelming, you can always start close to home and work in affordable steps. For more information on creating defensible space, contact Bill Trimarco, Archuleta FireWise coordinator, at 264-0430 or log on to southwestcoloradofires.org, or the Colorado State Forest Service website, csfs.colostate.edu.

These eagles stay on the alert, protecting the little ones safely ensconced in the aerie. Spring brings an abundance of newborn wildlife to Pagosa Country. and residents and visitors are urged not to touch any infant wildlife they might find. They are asked, instead, to contact Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers.

PWC sets hunt license numbers for 2012

The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission approved big game hunting license numbers on Thursday for the upcoming fall hunting seasons. Agency staff utilized herd population estimates to recommend reductions in license numbers for mule deer, elk and pronghorn while recommending increases in licenses to manage growing populations of moose and black bears. According to a 2008 study, big game hunting in Colorado provides more than $430 million per year in economic impact to the state and supports 4,660 jobs in the state. Colorado is a national leader in big game hunting opportunity. This year, Colorado will issue more than 240,000 limited licenses for the state’s ‘big three’ species — elk, deer and pronghorn. Wildlife managers and biologists around the state recommended the issuance of 139,461 limited elk licenses, 79,800 limited deer licenses and 23,862 pronghorn licenses for the 2012 fall seasons. Statewide, mule deer license quotas declined 5.8 percent from 2011. “Mule deer populations are being intensively monitored and we’ve seen some declines, especially in the northwest part of the state,” explained Andy Holland, statewide big game manager. “Between severe winters, increased development, habitat decline, migration corridor fragmentation and predation, most western states are seeing declines in mule deer populations. We adjusted license numbers accordingly.” In addition to issuing nearly 140,000 limited elk licenses, Colorado plans to issue an unlimited number of over-the-counter bull elk licenses in the archery, 2nd rifle and 3rd rifle seasons. The number of unlimited licenses available makes Colorado the top destination in the U.S. for elk hunting opportunity. The 2.2 percent decline in the number of limited elk tags offered this year is mostly related

to elk populations reaching management objectives after several years of intentional efforts by Colorado Parks and Wildlife to reduce elk damage on private lands. Despite the elk license number reduction, Colorado remains the destination state for elk hunters, offering more elk licenses by far than any other state. Black bear hunting license numbers will be increased in the state after biologists determined that the statewide population is larger than previously believed. New estimates show that approximately 16,000 to 18,000 black bears live in the state. “The emergence and increased affordability of things like DNA, tooth cementum analysis and GPS tracking collars have given us new tools to know that Colorado’s current black bear population is robust and larger than previously believed,” said Jerry Apker, Carnivore Biologist for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Apker further explained to the Commission that the agency’s black bear knowledge exceeds some other species because every hunter-harvested bear in Colorado is required to be checked by Parks and Wildlife personnel and significant historical harvest information about black bears is maintained by the agency. The historical harvest information coupled with new technology led to the increased population estimate and the increased number of hunting licenses approved for this coming fall. In other business, commissioners approved regulations to grant military veterans and active duty members of the military free entrance to all state parks on Veteran’s Day each Nov. 11. The Commission ruling makes permanent the previous tradition of the former Parks Board passing a “free day” for veterans and active duty service members each year.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is developing two plans for managing black bear populations in southwest Colorado and is seeking comments from the public to gauge opinions about bears in this part of the state. To gather comments, the agency is using on-line surveys to learn about people’s interactions and interest toward bears. Data and comments from the survey will be included in the draft management plans, which will be available for public review on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website late this summer. The plans will detail targeted population, hunting and harvest objectives. “These management plans are developed through both biological review and by examining social considerations,” said Brad Weinmeister, terrestrial biologist in the Durango area. “Comments from the public are very important in this process.” One plan focuses on an area west of the Animas River that in-

cludes big game management units 71, 72, 73, 74, 711 and 741 and is known as data analysis unit B-6. Counties included in this area are: La Plata, Montezuma, Dolores, San Juan and San Miguel. The other plan, east of the Animas River, includes big game management units 75, 77, 78, 751 and 771 and is known as data analysis unit B-18. Counties include: La Plata, Archuleta, Mineral and Hinsdale. The bear management plans will be presented to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission in late fall. The survey can be taken from May 18 through June 18; go to: https://www.research.net/s/ B18DAUplan and https://www. research.net/s/B6DAUplan. Completing each survey will take about 10 minutes. Written comments about the plans and bear management can also be submitted to Weinmeister at: brad.weinmeister@state.cous; or by mail to 151 E. 16th Street, Durango, CO 81301.

National EMS Week 2012 — May 20-26

Chromo post office receives reprieve from USPS, but might still close By Lindsey Bright Staff Writer

This past week, things were looking bright for rural post offices, brighter than anytime during the past year. On Wednesday, May 9, U.S. Post Service Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe announced that the closure of thousands of rural post offices across the country will be put on hold. Among those on the list is the Chromo post office. “We’ve listened to our customers in rural America and we’ve heard them loud and clear — they want to keep their Post Office open,” Donahoe said in a USPS press release. Of course, this is not because the USPS’s financial status has improved. USPS ended its second quarter with a net loss of $3.2 billion. “The losses,” the USPS quarterly statement reads, “are due primarily to legislative mandates such as the unique mandated prefunding of retiree health benefits, and prohibiting management from making the needed operational and human resource changes required to address these issues under current laws and contracts.”

Some of the operational and human resource changes mentioned include the closure of several thousand rural and urban post offices, as well as doing away with Saturday hours. To still have some cutbacks and savings, while keeping the rural and urban post offices open, hours at the majority of the 13,000 post offices that had previously been under evaluation for closure will be cut back. According to regional USPS spokesperson David Rupert, the post offices will be individually evaluated and the hours will be decided based on the work load of each office. For the Chromo post office, though not definitely, the hours will probably be four instead of the standard eight hours. However, before any hours at any post office will be changed, the Postal Regulatory Commission must approve the changes. According to Rupert, the $500,000 savings will be found in cutting personnel costs from full-time to part-time employees. Yet, even with the USPS agreeing to keep post offices open if the community preference and support is there, Ronald Bamrick, the current Chromo postmaster, isn’t having it. Bamrick leases space in the Chromo Mer-

cantile building to the USPS to be used for the post office; he also is the postmaster. “I’m going to shut the building down,” Bamrick said. “The reason is, I don’t have the money to run the building.” Bamrick did not give a definite closure date, but did say that it would be well before 2013. “I just don’t know what to do. I don’t have another choice,” Bamrick said. If he were to keep the building open, Bamrick said he would need enough money to cover the costs of propane, electricity and snow removal — around $500 to $600 a month. According to Bamrick, the USPS, while he did not divulge the exact amount being received via the lease agreement, is giving him a “mere pittance.” When asked about the Chromo post office and Bamrick’s position, Rupert could only say, “The post office will pay for our portion.” Until the Postal Service receives formal notice from Bamrick regarding closure of the building, the evaluation will continue under normal circumstances. The next step: A town meeting will be held to go over the services, hours and options for the post office. lindsey@pagosasun.com

New PAWSD board meets for first time By Lindsey Bright Staff Writer

Three new directors took seats on the Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District Board of Directors. Elected to office last week, Michael Church, Glenn Walsh and Burt Adams joined directors Allan Bunch and Roy Vega Tuesday night to become yet another all-male board in Archuleta County. Director Bunch was unanimously voted as chairman of the board and president of the district, and Director Vega was unanimously voted vice-chairman of the board. Church volunteered to take the post of secretary, and Walsh stepped up to take the position of treasurer. Walsh also volunteered to sit on the budget committee. Vega will stay on the audit committee. District Manager Ed Winton also suggested the creation of a Capital Improvement Committee with one or two directors as members so they can be actively involved in the process. The directors agreed to the creation, and Church and Adams both volunteered to be on the committee. With new positions and committee commitments decided, Bunch spoke to the conduct of the board. “The moment we are gavelled together, we are no longer Roy and Glenn and Allan, but Director Vega and Director Walsh,” Bunch said, adding that the directors should act in a professional way and, “limit tangent discussions drastically.” Bunch also advocated that there be one person on the board who is in contact with the PAWSD staff and district manager to limit the amount of contact between the PAWSD board and staff. Winton said that, when there is undue familiarity between board members and staff, the employees are often put in a compromising position. While not certain of the details of how this arrangement would work out, the board acknowledged that there should be lines drawn. The new board members, on their first night gavelled together, did make a non-conventional move. After a lengthy discussion, the board voted against a motion to go into executive session, opting instead to have the conversation with the district’s attorney, Evan Ela, open to the public. Ela explained to the board that Tom Smith’s attorney had approached Ela with a proposition to rent, in no specific terms, a portion of the Dutton Ditch pipeline.

Smith owns property adjacent to Stevens Reservoir. In the process of building the reservoir, Ela said the district and Smith had “less than friendly” exchanges, exchanges involving litigation. Smith, Ela explained, is looking into building some residential properties on his property around Stevens Reservoir, and after looking at the inclusion and tap fees charged by PAWSD, is thinking about building his own water system. “He was wondering whether PAWSD would be interested in sharing the (Dutton) pipeline with him,” Ela said. After the conversation with Ela, the directors discussed the question. “I don’t see any long-term benefit, and a potential liability if we enter into an agreement at this point,” Adams aid. “The word ‘no’ is echoing in my head,” Walsh said, continuing to make motion to answer ‘no’ to Smith’s request. The motion passed unanimously. In a projects update, it was revealed that PAWSD has been very busy. The Highlands Lagoon Elimination project was completed and decommissioned on April 30. The

cost of decommissioning the lagoon was $115,879. The biosolids and centrifuge project (the biosolids greenhouse), according to project manager Gregg Mayo, should be up and running in the next 90 to 120 days. The sturcture is currently being built, and Mayo said that once the walls and doors are installed, the electrical work will be completed. The facility will be able to store a year’s worth of treated biosolids, and Mayo gave assurance that it would not smell. A Request for Qualification has been placed in today’s SUN for the San Juan Water Treatment Plant Improvements Project. This project would make it so that water from all of PAWSD’s lakes and reservoirs, Village Lake, Lake Forest, Lake Pagosa and Stevens Reservoir, will be able to be treated and the water used. Presently, the only lake from which water can be treated and used is Hatcher Reservoir. A pump station from Lake Forest to the San Juan Treatment Plant will be needed. After this, an upgrade to the plant will be necessary so the water can be properly treated. The upgrade will include a total organic compound reduction facility. The estimated cost of the project is

These individuals are true public servants, dedicating their lives to aiding people in times of crisis or emergency. Pagosa, we serve you with much pride, dedication and caring. Your local EMTs will be at City Market next week, giving out safety tips and gifts to children. As you all know, if at any time duty calls and we are not there, we are serving the community. The dates and times scheduled at City Market are May 22, 3:30-5:30 p.m.; May 24, 3:30-5:30 p.m.; May 25, 1:30-3:30 p.m.

$2.75 million. “It’s a major thing for us,” Mayo said. PAWSD introduced plans at phasing out coin and dollar bill payment at fill stations and instead using a machine that will take both prepaid and credit cards, not debit cards. There are plans to install a total of five Metron Farnier meters at all three water treatment plants. These metering devices have a 99.5 percent accuracy rating. “Right now, we think we are producing one million gallons of water, but we don’t really know. We have a pretty good idea,” Mayo said, adding that these new meters will give an accurate measurement. The joint town and PAWSD wastewater project is continuing. The Preliminary Engineering Report has been sent to Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). The CDPHE sent a letter to Bartlett and West, the engineers contracted for the PER, requesting clarification on certain matters. Bartlett and West responded, and Mayo is expecting the CDPHE to give the PER approval by week’s end. lindsey@pagosasun.com

National Learn to Fly Day Saturday at Stevens field By Anne Kautzky Special to The SUN

When a plane passes over head, do you look up and wish you could be up there too? Do you fantasize of escaping the two dimensional world and discover a different world with new perspectives? Explore new places, and experience a feeling of freedom and accomplishment? All this is possible with a Private Pilot’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, “because flying is fun” and, “it provides a reliable and faster way to get to a destination.” 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 doing so when you want to go rather than on the airline’s schedule. Who couldn’t use more flexibility and productivity in their transportation needs? The question asked so often: “So, what does it take to learn to fly?” T h e a n s w e r : “D e s i re” Desire is the most important element in successfully learning to fly. Leonardo Di Vinci summed it up best: “When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” Flying is one of the most challenging activities you’ll ever experience, and that’s what makes it so rewarding. Once you have made the commitment to invest your time and energy in learning to fly,

Through the efforts of the EAA and the National Association of Flight Instructors (NAFI), Congress passed a resolution in May 2010 that recognizes the third Saturday of May as National Learn to Fly Day. This Resolution supports, “the goals and ideals of National Learn to Fly Day,” noting that, “since the birth of flight, aviation has had a tremendous impact on the imagination, innovation, and economy of the United States.” Many of this country’s heroes

PAGOSA LAKES NEWS

A love of food, pass the parsley By Ming Steen SUN Columnist

Have you heard of objectum sexuality? These folks love objects, they experience intense emotional connections with everyday things — bridges, stereos, guitars, cars … you get the drift. For me, it’s food — my attraction to food — the buying, preparation and consumption. When I’m cooking, it’s one of the most relaxing times of the day. I feel like I’m setting myself free. I can breathe (and mind you it has to be free-form cooking, sans recipe books). I get pleasure from smelling and seeing raw ingredients come together to a finale of exquisite taste. Is there an emotional connection? Darn right there is! A bad dish is often a predictor of impending ill health or humor — which sends my husband to his study and so, when it hits, he’s behind closed doors. My natural proclivity for foods and my fondness for people in general (but, of course, there are those I would feed hemlock to) is a great human connection. My family and friends know I show my love through food and it’s pretty predictable. No surprises here. A family friend, Kenny, doesn’t much mind cooking, but he deplores shopping for food. I frankly cannot understand his aversion. I love grocery shopping over shopping for clothes, jewelry or household knick-knacks. He must be weird — if he’s not like me and he doesn’t like what I like, he’s a candidate for a make-over. “Let’s go grocery shopping together,” I tell Kenny. Even here, in “Siberia With a View,” shopping at our local grocery store is an almostdaily highlight for me. When I get

to Denver and hit the Oriental market, I’m like a kid in the toy store. Please pass the parsley. Did you know that a mere ounce of parsley provides 43 percent of the recommended dietary allowance for Vitamin C and 18 percent of the RDA for iron in men (12 percent in women) — plus 1 mg of beta carotene. Powerful stuff, isn’t it? Additionally, it helps to cleanse your breath if dinner is heavy on the garlic (which, by the way, is also very healthy). Doesn’t loving something or some activity make one an aficionado of it? I’d like to believe I’m a good shopper; so, indulge me. Do view nutrition labels. Yes, if you see me shopping with my bifocals perched on the tip of my stubby nose, it’s so I can read labels. I swear the print is getting smaller — must be a sign of economic hard times. I’ll be carrying a magnifying glass, soon. Any food called “healthy” needs to contain at least 10 percent of the daily value for one of several important nutrients, in addition to being low in fat, saturated fat, sodium and cholesterol. Bet you didn’t know this is called the, “jelly bean rule,” since jelly beans have zero fat, sodium or cholesterol — but also no nutrition. (This may be why my jelly-bean-loving friend, Margie, is so itsy bitsy). Go for the greenest. When buying salad makings, select vegetables with deepest color — dark greens and reds. Why? The dark color means beta carotene and other carotenoids, vitamin C, folic acid, calcium and other nutrients are present. Don’t dismiss frozen produce. Some frozen fruits and vegetables contain just as many nutrients as

fresh produce. Some of our fresh vegetables aren’t so fresh after sitting on display in the store following transportation across the country. Don’t forget fiber’s finest. Load up on whole-grain breads, rolls and cereals, as well as brown rice and dried beans. For the physically active, you need carbs to fuel your body’s engine. I know the convenience of TV dinners can be terribly tempting. I succumbed to the temptation last week and picked up two Kashi southwestern chicken dinners. After eating the Lilliputian-sized portion, Tom and I had to rummage through the fridge for more food. My goodness, those little bitty servings must be designed for a person with the metabolism of a sloth. But, if you qualify as the proud owner of a sloth-rate metabolism, have absolutely no interest in cooking, but must occasionally eat to survive, then choose your frozen meal carefully. There are those that contain less than 10 grams of fat and a lower amount of sodium and cholesterol. I cannot shop on an empty stomach without coming home with junk food. When my tummy is full, I am a lot more discerning and more willing to spend the extra time to pick through fresh produce. And, no, I’m not one of those who will squeeze and prod every apple in the bin for the best. The other day I stood in line behind a lady who was choosing “very carefully.” When she was finally done, I asked her if she could tell me which one was the second best. Lucky for me she thought this was funny. A bit of humor goes a long way, so, please pass the parsley.

Controlling tent-making caterpillars By Liz Haynes SUN Columnist

Tent caterpillars can be a severe nuisance in southwestern Colorado. Spring outbreaks result in masses of tents in trees, defoliation of deciduous trees, and ample frustration for the landowner trying to control the masses of larvae. Their wriggling tents are where the larvae are found. Different tent caterpillars will feed on various species of trees with fruit trees, aspen, mountain mahogany, oak, ash, and cottonwood used as hosts. Tent caterpillars feed and establish their silky tents in the crotches of trees and shrubs in late spring. During heavy infestations, the tent caterpillars will migrate and feed on a variety of other plants. Several kinds of caterpillars feed in groups or colonies on trees and shrubs and produce a silken shelter or tent. Most common in spring are various types of tent caterpillars (Malacosoma species). During summer, large loose tents produced by fall webworm (Hyphantria cunea) are seen on the branches of cottonwoods, chokecherry, and many other plants. Occasionally, early spring outbreaks of caterpillars of the tiger moth (Lophocampa species) attract attention. Four species of tent caterpillars occur in Colorado. The western tent caterpillar (M. californicum) most often is seen infesting aspen and mountain-mahogany during May and early June. Many other plants, particularly fruit trees, may also be infested. The western tent caterpillar is the most common and damaging tent caterpillar, sometimes producing widespread outbreaks that have killed large areas of aspen. In stands of gambel oak, the sonoran tent caterpillar (M. tigris) occurs and the M. incurvatum discoloratum can be found feeding on cottonwoods and related trees during April and early May in the Tri River area of western Colorado. In northeastern Colorado, the eastern tent caterpillar (M. americanum) can occasionally be found on fruit trees. These tent caterpillars spend the winter in egg masses glued to twigs of the host plant. Prior to winter, the insects transform to caterpillars and emerge from the eggs shortly after bud break. The newly emerged caterpillars move to crotches of branches and begin to produce a mass of dense silk. This silken tent is used by the developing insects for rest and

shelter during the day. They also molt (shed their skins) while on the silk mats. Most often the caterpillars leave the silk shelter to feed at night, returning by daylight, although they sometimes feed during daylight hours as well. The tent is gradually enlarged as the caterpillars grow. The caterpillars become full grown in late spring. Most wander from the area of the tent and spin a white cocoon of silk, within which they pupate. The adult moths, which are light brown with faint light wavy bands on the wings emerge about two weeks later. The moths mate and the females then lay a single egg mass. Tent caterpillars produce only one generation per year. The most common and damaging tent caterpillar found in urban areas is the forest tent caterpillar, M. disstria. Although its life history is similar to other tent caterpillars, the forest tent caterpillar does not produce a permanent tent as do the other species. Instead, they make light mats of silk on trunks and branches that are used as temporary resting areas during the day. Forest tent caterpillars feed on a wide variety of plants, including aspen, ash and various fruit trees. Occasionally, they produce outbreaks that can damage plants.

Fall webworm Fall webworm is the most common tent caterpillar observed during midsummer. It is found on a many different plants, although chokecherry and cottonwood are the most common hosts. Winter is spent as a pupa, loosely buried under protective debris in the vicinity of previously infested trees. The adults, a nearly pure white moth, emerge in June and July, mate and lay eggs in masses on the leaves of trees and shrubs. Eggs hatch shortly afterwards. The young caterpillars feed as a group, covering the few leaves on which they feed. As they get older, fall webworms progressively cover larger areas of the plant with loose silk, and generally feed within the loose tent that they produce. When full grown, the caterpillars disperse and sometimes create a nuisance as they crawl over fences and sides of homes. There is only one generation of fall webworm known to occur in Colorado, although two or more generations are produced in parts of Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and other nearby states.

Tiger moth

Caterpillars of tiger moths (L.

ingens, L. argentata) make a dense mat of silk on the terminal growth of ponderosa pine, lodgepole pine, pinyon, Douglas-fir, white fir and juniper. They are one of the few caterpillars that continue to feed and develop during winter. They produce and occupy tents through early spring. By June, they complete their development and pupate. The adult moths emerge and fly during July and August, laying masses of eggs that hatch before fall. Historically, outbreaks of tiger moths occur most commonly in the Black Forest area near Colorado Springs and in West Slope pinyonjuniper stands. Top-kill of damaged trees commonly results from these injuries.

Minor tent-producing insects

A few other insects are found in Colorado and produce silken tents. Uglynest caterpillars (Archips cerasivornana) can be found on chokecherry, where they produce a messy nest of silk mixed with bits of leaves and insect frass. Outbreaks of the rabbitbrush webbing moth (Synnoma lynsyrana) occasionally damage rabbitbrush. An uncommon group of sawflies, known as web-spinning sawflies, also produce mats of silk on spruce, pines or plum.

Control

Many natural enemies attack all of the tent-making caterpillars. Birds, predaceous bugs and various hunting wasps prey on the caterpillars. Tachinid flies and parasitic wasps are important parasites. Tent caterpillars also are susceptible to a virus disease that can devastate populations. Because of these biological controls, serious outbreaks rarely last more than a single season. An exception is found in some communities where fall webworm is an annual problem. One reason for these sustained outbreaks may be the loss of biological controls due to aerial mosquito spraying. The microbial insecticide Bacillus thuringiensis (Dipel, Thuricide, etc.) can be an effective and selective control of all the tent-making caterpillars. However, to control fall webworm, Bt must be eaten by the insect. Therefore, it must be applied before the colony covers all of the leaves. Several contact insecticides also are effective for tent-making caterpillars. Sevin (carbaryl) has long been available. More recently, various pyrethroids such as permethrin, cyfluthrin and esfenvaler-

4-H offers recycling to Pagosa Country residents

By Lisa Scott

Special to The SUN

The county 4-H program offers two opportunities for county residents to participate in recycling efforts. All 4-H Clubs have been recycling aluminum cans for years, and your cans can be brought to the Extension Office any time at your convenience and placed in the recycling location on the south side of the building in the corner adjacent to the building’s south entrance. Cans that are collected are taken to City Market for the aluminum recycling price. The six 4-H clubs rotate on a monthly basis, taking the cans uptown. The money re-

ceived from the recycling center is put into the 4-H Council treasury for the benefit of the entire 4-H program. The 4-H Club Wolf Creek Wonders began the program to recycle rechargeable batteries last fall. Boxes to dispose of your recycled batteries can be found at five locations: Ace Hardware, Ponderosa Lumber, Radio Shack, Sisson Library and Verizon. Look for a small brown box with signs. Drop your recyclable items in the box and 4-H members will collect them monthly. Collected batteries are then individually bagged by 4-H members, put into a shipping container and mailed to Call2Recycle, which processes the batteries in compliance

with U.S. Department of Transportation safety procedures. A huge thanks goes to these businesses for allowing the collection boxes to be placed at their locations. Keeping batteries and cans out of the landfills, reusing some materials that went into making them and cutting pollution is the goal of the 4-H recycling programs. Archuleta County 4-H offers opportunities for everyone in the community to recycle aluminum cans and rechargeable batteries. Both recycling services are offered year round and we encourage all county residents to bring rechargeable batteries and aluminum cans to the designated locations. Help 4-H and help our environment.

ate are available for homeowner application and are highly effective. Spinosad, a naturally-derived product (sold as Conserve to commercial applicators) is very selective in its effects of species other than caterpillars. If accessible, tents may also be pulled out and removed. More severe measures, such as pruning or burning, are not recommended because they can cause more injury than the insects. Often, there is no need to control these insects. This is particularly true for fall webworm, which feeds late in the season. Such late season injuries can be well tolerated by plants. Control normally is warranted only where there are sustained, high levels of defoliation over several years. Information provided by W.S. Cranshaw, Colorado State University Extension entomologist and professor, bioagricultural sciences and pest management.

Cafe Fox decorated and open at The Den Getting geared up for By Musetta Wollenweber SUN Columnist

The anticipation of the grand opening of Cafe Fox was overwhelming for me and probably the staff, too, due to my anticipatorioussness of the event (I love to make up words). I had been working on this project in my head for just about two years; I was way overdue to make it happen. Following a great training with other fellow nutrition directors in the state, I came back to Pagosa Springs from Montrose with a great vision — naming the dining room. Just exactly what to name the dining room was another story, but one thing I did know was that it was time for change. I called my program coordinator before I made it back to town and shared this great vision with her and the challenge that stood before us. What will we name the dining room? Jodi quickly had an answer; “Cafe Fox” she said! Over the past several months, with the help of the gals, Jamie and Carol, at Treasures of the Past, I began collecting items for our walls that had a bit of an antique theme. Rob found a few more last-minute items and we were ready to go. I summoned the help of our maintenance department to get this task completed properly; surely I would smash my thumb with a hammer or hit an electric supply if I tried this on my own. We were barely started and Frankie was already strumming the washboard and singing songs. Next thing I knew, he had an old basin in his hand telling me how his grandma used to make tortillas in one just like it. Someone else thought he was holding a bedpan. Hmm. Chris thought I was nuts with how I wanted to hang the ends of the cantaloupe crates, but being the gracious guy that he is, he put up with me, nailed them up, stood back, and agreed it looked good. We encountered a little crisis (isn’t there always one?) while putting up the letters Cafe Fox, but in the end, the crisis needed to happen, because the end result was a cute little fox, which is our dining room logo, strategically placed between the two words. Thanks for making that work, Chris. The walls are now lovingly adorned with some great conversation pieces and my favorite, the ol’ dinner triangle. I’m tempted to take it back down to use just before we serve. Perhaps an old cow bell could take its place on the wall? Not only are the walls talk-

ing to us from the past, they are also exploding in action with Rob Gaston’s Navy photographs during his deployment on the USS Enterprise. The grand opening was a success with many smiles and stories; my feet hurt, but it was well worth it. Come enjoy the new ambience at Cafe Fox while taking a trip down memory lane and enjoying the art show.

Alerts

Investment scams: don’t bite! As surely as the market swings up and down, every year thousands of people lose millions of dollars to investment fraud. There are the warning signs to heed and resources available to help keep your savings safe. Phony investment brokers are masters of deception who make their living with convincing sales pitches that are “too good to pass up.” The “sure-thing” promise of a big, fast return should always raise a big, red flag. In addition, be wary of: • Unsolicited calls or emails offering investment opportunities — a contact you didn’t ask for is most likely a conversation you don’t want to have. • The hard sell. If you feel pressured to “act now,” walk away — a legitimate investment will still be there tomorrow, and, • Any offer you don’t fully understand. Your questions should all be answered clearly and completely. Bottom line, do the proper research on anyone looking to make an investment for you. To ensure they are fully licensed and in good standing in your state, here are two easy-to-use resources: • BrokerCheck — www.finra. org/brokercheck — a free online tool provided by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, and the • SaveAndInvest.org hotline at (888) 295-7422.

Health department offers hepatitis testing, vaccinations By Jane Looney Special to The SUN

May has been designated Hepatitis Awareness Month. Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C can become chronic, life-long infections which can lead to liver cancer. Millions of Americans are living with chronic viral hepatitis, and many do not know they are infected. Since chronic hepatitis of-

One of a Kind, Made One at a Time.

CHAMBER NEWS

Time grows short on several Chamber projects By Mary Jo Coulehan SUN Columnist

As May continues to fly by, several Chamber projects are coming to a close.

Hanging baskets

With only a limited number of hanging baskets ordered this year, both the 12- and 16-inch sizes are almost sold out. These beautiful baskets really spruce up your business or home and are planted with flowers and plants that are somewhat heat resistant. The baskets last summer were just spectacular and we received rave reviews. We expect the flowers to have the same longevity this year. The 12-inch baskets will be delivered on Friday, May 25, and the 16-inch baskets will be delivered the following week. Included with the delivery is some fertilizer to help your plants through the summer and to thank you for “growing with the Chamber.” Please call the Chamber at 264-2360 to see if you can get on the list for these colorful flower baskets. We can’t wait to see a lot of color being added to businesses around town.

Car raffle

On Saturday, May 19, at 3 p.m., one ticket will be drawn and someone will win a 2001 Jeep Grande Cherokee Laredo. This is the first car raffle the Chamber has held. Only 1,000 tickets are offered for the raffle. There are still some tickets available and they can be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce or from any staff or board member at their place of business. Tickets will be sold at the Car Show at Pagosa on Saturday, May 19. The drawing will take place on Lewis Street at 3 p.m. Saturday, but if you purchased a ticket, you do not have to be present to win. Just in time for graduation, this could be a great present for that senior or young adult getting ready to drive. Tickets are $25 and you can’t win if you don’t play!

Car Show at Pagosa

On Friday and Saturday, May 18-19, the fourth annual Car Show at Pagosa will be

The Region 9 Economic Development District of Southwest Colorado (Region 9) has established a regional loan program that provides a pool of funds for businesses wanting to reduce operation costs and resource consumption in order to improve their energy efficiency, Cassie Alexander, business development specialist with Region 9, said that this program fills Region 9’s mission of helping businesses succeed. Region 9 is working in cooperation with the Four Corners Office of Resource Efficiency (4CORE) which is providing businesses (and individuals) information on energy assessments and possible tax credits, as well as helping to calculate the financial benefits for making any energy efficiency improvements. Region 9 can work with businesses that have an energy efficiency plan that they want to implement. For more information on this loan program, contact Jenny Stollar at 247-9621 or at jenny@ scan.org.

Incumbent board member Bob Formwalt was re-elected by La Plata Electric Association (LPEA) members to fill the director seat for District 1. Election results were announced at the LPEA Annual Meeting, held Saturday, May 12, at Sky Ute Casino and Resort, Ignacio. Approximately 26 percent of LPEA’s 30,000-plus residential and commercial members returned ballots in the election, a higher percentage than typical, likely because incumbents in all four of LPEA’s districts were challenged, plus a slate of renewable energy proponents mounted a concerted election effort. In accordance with LPEA’s bylaws, annually one seat in each of LPEA’s four districts comes up for election. “Typically, LPEA receives an average 20 percent return during elections,” said Greg Munro, LPEA CEO, noting that in 2011 only 14 percent of members cast ballots. “Because we are a cooperative we truly want our members to vote, so we were glad to see the higher turnout.” Ballots were prepared in accordance with requirements of the La Plata County Clerk, and the county’s electronic voting equipment was used by FredrickZink & Associates, the independent accounting firm retained to tally the votes. In District 1, Archuleta County,

1,900 of the approximately 7,600 LPEA members returned ballots with incumbent J. Robert (Bob) Formwalt receiving 975 and challenger Kirsten Skeehan receiving 925 votes. Formwalt was raised in southwest Colorado and completed his college education in Business Administration at Fort Lewis College. He spent the next 10 years in the banking industry at Belgrade State Bank of Belgrade, Mont., and Burns National Bank, Durango, with a focus on real estate and agricultural loans. Formwalt served 12 years as an Archuleta County commissioner, and has participated actively in the local community, as well as statewide, serving on numerous boards and commissions. Employed with his wife on their ranch east of Pagosa, he also currently works part time as a water commissioner for the Colorado Division of Water Resources. Incumbent Jerry McCaw received 1,218 votes to win over challenger Bruce Baizel, who received 979, in the director election in District 2, south and west La Plata County. Of the approximately 8,200 eligible voters, 2,197 cast ballots. In District 3, the City of Durango, new candidate Britt Bassett received 1,390 votes over incumbent Robert (Bobby) Lieb’s 700. District 3 includes approximately 7,300 eligible voters, and 2,090 voted. Candidate Heather Erb was elected as the director for District

TTC hears report on Reservoir Hill development plan By Jim McQuiggin Staff Writer

Last Wednesday, members of the Town Tourism Committee heard a report regarding progress on a proposal to develop recreational amenities on Reservoir Hill — a plan that has become a contentious issue for many area residents. Although Thad McKain, a Reservoir Hill Task Force (RHTF) member, reported to the TTC that he had heard a certain amount of opposition while circulating a TTC petition, TTC President Bob Hart waved off those objections, claiming that the proposed project has widespread support. “The petitions can still get some signatures,” McKain told the TTC last Wednesday, saying he would be trying to get out to solicit more signatures. “At this point, it’s really in the town’s hands.” The petitions McKain referred to are two versions that the TTC began circulating last fall, soon after the group presented its Reservoir Hill plan to the Pagosa Springs Town Council. Those petitions ask for signatures in support of the project (with one petition also touting assumed economic development benefits) but notably absent is any solicitation for opposition to the project. That was a point raised by former council member Shari Pierce when the RHTF made a public presentation of the plan in January. At that meeting, when asked why opposing comments were not solicited, McKain told Pierce, “Because we were asking for those that were for it.” “I want to know who’s not for it,” Pierce said, “so I can make a good decision for town council.” At Wednesday’s meeting, McKain told TTC members, “I have been approached by a lot of people, they say they love the idea of what’s on top of the hill. They say, ‘The chair lift’s our only issue’ and I say, well, there a limited amount of options, if you don’t do the chair lift then there’s parking lots and things like that that have to be thought about.” Parking would be an issue with or without the chair lift, however, a point raised by Wolf Creek Ski Area CEO Davey Pitcher when he addressed council last month in stating opposition to the chair lift. Pitcher said that, with limited access and loading times for the lift, parking and busses would still be required for any events or amenities.

“I’m not sure there’s a net gain,” Pitcher said at the time. McKain added that he had also heard people asking, “So why can’t we just have the hill for the town folks, that’s what some were saying ... at least they’re still talking about it.” “We also don’t get to have them on the petition we have out, the 500 or 600 that want to see it,” Hart said regarding the number of signatures that had so far been collected — many of those signatures from out-of-town visitors. While the TTC may have indeed collected 500 or 600 signatures from people who believe that the installation of recreational amenities would be a fine idea, two polls conducted over the past year in The SUN indicate an overwhelming opposition to many parts of the plan. Results from an informal three-option poll, published in the Nov. 10, 2011 edition of The SUN, indicated that, out of 353 responses to the question, “Should Reservoir Hill be developed for economic use?,” 14 percent chose, “Yes, it has great potential,” 15 percent chose “It’s already an economic asset,” and 71 percent opted for the “No, leave it as a natural resource,” response. In late January, The SUN ran an 11-option poll for two weeks, with over 1,000 respondents (the poll logged IP addresses to prevent over-voting). When results of that poll were summed, 8.6 percent of respondents didn’t want to see anything happen on the hill, with 15 percent in favor of an amphitheater. Only 2.8 percent were in favor of a balloon, 5.5 percent supported an alpine coaster, 6 percent responded favorably to a zipline suggestion and 6.2 percent were in favor of a chair lift. Furthermore, when gathering amenities into categories such as “rides” (lift, balloon, coaster, zipline) or “low-impact development” (amphitheater, restrooms, road and trail improvements, observation tower, electrical and sewer but leaving out the “do nothing” option), 20.6 percent favored adding rides while 71 percent preferred low-impact development. If subtracting out the chair lift from “rides” (since the TTC is proposing not to charge for lift rides), only 14.35 percent of respondents favored adding paid rides. Despite two polls indicating resounding opposition to several key components of the plan, Hart and the TTC apparently remain convinced that a full buildout would

be an asset to the town. That asset would come at a price, however. In late April, students from the Fort Lewis College School of Business submitted a business plan that had been assigned by the TTC, recommending that the town mortgage Reservoir Hill in order to finance the estimated $4.5 million price tag for the development of Reservoir Hill amenities. No proposal has been suggested to retain the hill should the project fail before a loan (with the hill as collateral) is paid off. Presumably, as with most real estate deals, should the town find itself under water due to the failure of recreational amenities to pay for themselves, ownership of the hill would be turned over to whatever lending institution structured the loan. That business plan, employing some questionable data and assumptions (for instance, using data from similar amenities in Duluth, Minn., a community more than 60 times the size of Pagosa Springs), was nevertheless embraced by Hart during Wednesday’s meeting. “Their numbers not only verified what Jennie (Green, TTC coordinator) and our committee researched but, in a number of ways, were actually better,” Hart said. Having accepted the business plan authored by FLC students and seemingly convinced that TTC petitions will illustrate overwhelming support for the project, Hart said, “So really, we’re just going to make our presentation on the twenty-fourth and see what town council wants us to do next.” Although the TTC had been scheduled to present findings of the FLC business plan, as well as offer recommendations, at a council work session scheduled for next Thursday, Pagosa Springs Town Manager David Mitchem said yesterday that, due to a busy calendar (Wal-Mart will submit initial sketch plans to the Pagosa Springs Planning Commission next Tuesday at 5:15 p.m. in Town Hall), the work session has been postponed until an undetermined later date. “It really depends on how long it takes to run WalMart’s plans through the public process,” Mitchem said, emphasizing that council had too much to deal with at the moment to schedule a work session for the Reservoir Hill proposal. While council will doubtlessly hear the TTC’s numbers and rationale for developing recreational amenities on Reservoir Hill, it remains to be seen if opposing data

Town obtains grant for work on trails project By Jim McQuiggin Staff Writer

A scheme to tie in trails from the Pagosa Lakes area all the way to downtown Pagosa Springs, designed and discussed during the past few years, was provided a substantial boost towards breaking ground when the town of Pagosa Springs was notified that it would be receiving $200,000 in State Trails Grant money. The so-called Town-to-Lakes Trail ecame part of the town’s Comprehensive Plan in 2006 and then the county’s Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails (PROST) Task Force furthered that discussion in 2007. Since then, the scheme has been a joint project between the town and county. Numerous presentations have been made to town and county representatives regarding proposals for various routes suggested for the project. During the past several years, the need for securing easements from numerous property owners not only led to several revisions, but held up the pursuit of grant funding. With some easements agreed to and a plan accommodating areas where property owners refused to

provide access, planners were able to apply for grant money following the development of a plan that was more or less a final draft. On April 30, Town Planner James Dickhoff was notified by the state that the town had been awarded $200,000 for the trail plan. The grant is administered through the Colorado Department of Natural Resources and money is provided through a partnership among Colorado State Parks, Great Outdoors Colorado, the Colorado Lottery, the federal Recreational Trails Program, and the Land and Water Conservation Fund. That money will supplement almost a half-million dollars in funds already secured for the project. With a $218,000 transportation enhancement grant awarded by the Colorado Department of Transportation, another $200,000 provided from PROST and $45,000 from the Pagosa Lakes Property Owners Association, close to $700,000 has been accumulated for project. According to Dickhoff, the estimated cost for the first segment of the trail system is $550,000. Dickhoff added that the remaining funds (from PROST money) would be held to, “leverage matching funds for

more grants that will fund additional segments.” According to a presentation Dickhoff will deliver to the Pagosa Springs Town Council today (at noon in Town Hall), the initial phase, “(W) ill encompass 1,400 lineal feet of 10 foot wide hard surface trail, beginning at Pinon Causeway and Village Drive Intersection, heading south across Hwy 160, then heading east to connect with the Aspen Village Drive and the On-Street Bike Lanes and Sidewalks within the Aspen Village Development.” That presentation will be part of a resolution asking council to support authorizing terms of the grant agreement. Those terms essentially state that the town agrees to move forward with the project (to eventual completion) and that the grant funds will be used solely for construction on that trail segment. If council passes that resolution, Dickhoff said that the project would enter a design and engineering phase within the next couple of months that will continue into the fall; construction is slated to start early spring 2013. jim@pagosasun.com

or points of view will be heard. Much like the petitions circulated by the TTC, the work session could be the TTC’s show, with only questions of support raised at the meeting. In fact, the project has appeared to proceed with little, if any, critical analysis from within the committee. For instance, when council agreed to allocate funds to the TTC in order to purchase the chair lift, the TTC was directed to work with the town’s Park and Recreation Commission (PRC), a group in which several members have at times expressed a different vision for Reservoir Hill than what the TTC has proposed. Neither the TTC nor the RHTF have met with the PRC in over eight months despite those meeting having been publicly noticed. Furthermore, Pagosa Springs Police Department Chief Bill Rockensock has expressed public safety concerns with a full buildout of the Reservoir Hill, especially due to the fact that the top of the hill has a single point of access, that being a single-lane road. Rockensock claimed that if an incident occurred (such as a shooting), people attempting to flee that situation would be running directly into the path of responding emergency vehicles — creating the potential for more injuries or even deaths. Yesterday, Rockensock confirmed that he has never been approached by the TTC or RHTF regarding public safety issues pertaining to a Reservoir Hill build out. Furthermore, Rockensock has never been called on to speak at any of the public meetings regarding a Reservoir Hill plan. Despite numerous unanswered questions surrounding the proposed development of Reservoir Hill, the TTC appears determined to push forward with the plan, seeking a work session with council to advocate for council’s approval to move forward. Yet, with questions remaining regarding projected economic benefits (see related article), assumptions based on unsubstantiated data, public safety concerns, local support and the TTC’s adherence to the process mandated by council, the most pressing question at the moment is when a work session will be held to discuss the project — and if any of the above questions will be raised by members of the community concerned with the overall scope of the project. jim@pagosasun.com

County files lawsuit on alleged property use violation By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

Archuleta County is cracking down on the commercial use of residential properties with the filing of a lawsuit this week. According to a complaint filed by County Attorney Todd Starr’s office Tuesday and refiled this morning (Thursday), Derald Polston is using a home located at 157 Laguna Place, in Lake Hatcher Park, commercially. The complaint was filed twice after an inaccurate deed was used as an exhibit and the complaint was filed against two individuals instead of only one. Starr’s office was able to prevent the inaccurate complaint from being served and the suit dismissed, with the corrected complaint expected to be filed this morning.

The complaint states that the property was given a Certificate of Occupancy for a residential property (R3), which did not change despite Polston’s purchase of the property and remodeling work. The complaint alleges, however, that the property is no longer being used as a single- or two-family dwelling as the residential certificate allows, but is, instead, being used as a commercial lodging operation. “The Defendants’ blatant disregard of the Building Code including, but not limited to, their use of The Property as a commercial lodging operation without adequate safety precautions have been followed in the construction of The Property causes the general public immediate and irreparable injury, loss, or damage,” the complaint reads. The complaint alleges that the

property is being used as a, “Residential, transient, boarding house,” which falls under an R1 classification. Included in the exhibits of the complaint is the house’s listing on the vacation rental website VRBO.com. The county, through the lawsuit, is seeking to stop the practice, have the property’s Certificate of Occupancy rendered null and void, and to regain attorney’s fees and costs, as well as other relief the court may find appropriate. “The commissioners directed me to file the suit in response to a number of complaints from neighbors,” Starr said of the filing Tuesday, adding that the commercial use of the property is a safety concern. Starr said he believes the property has been used as a rental for over one year. randi@pagosasun.com

Fourth annual Car Show at Pagosa, May 18-19 By Mary Jo Coulehan Special to The PREVIEW

The weather forecast for the weekend of May 18 -19 looks to be sunny and that is excellent news for the Car Show at Pagosa participants and spectators. Pre-registration numbers for the Car Show already match last year’s total entries and, with lastminute registration, that is a good indication we will have increased attendance. There will be even more cars this year, as the classic vehicles line up along Lewis Street and are seen around town atvarious gatherings. Beginning Friday evening, May 18, the cars can be viewed in the Town Park area, when registration and a barbecue will be held. This is a great place to take in the cars if you will not be able to attend the Show and Shine on Saturday. There will be music, a beer and wine garden, food and, of course, those exquisite cars. On Saturday morning, beginning at about 8 a.m., the Car Show participants will start lining up along Lewis Street for the fourth Show and Shine. There will be first-, second- and third-place awards given out in over a dozen categories. This is the best time to see all the hard work that has gone into restoring these classic cars and thank the participants for coming to Pagosa from all over the region, the state and even Texas. At the Show and Shine there will be food vendors and you can walk to all the downtown restaurants. There will also be a 50/50 raffle, live

music with The Killens, and a beer and wine booth. At 2 p.m., we will begin to give away the majority of the awards. Then, at 3 p.m., the drawing will be held for the Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Tickets will be available the day of the car show. Tickets for the raffle are only $25 and only 1,000 tickets are available. Prior to Saturday, tickets can be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce and at locations throughout town from Chamber Board members. After the raffle, the car show participants will move over to one of the Car Show’s sponsors, The Springs Resort, for a reception and even more awards, including the Golden Odometer (person that traveled the farthest) and Car Show Participants’ Choice. So, if you are going to be otherwise engaged during the day, swing by The Springs Resort and see the cars. On Sunday morning, May 20, you have one more chance to see a good anumber of cars as their owners enjoy a group breakfast at The Plaza Grille around 8 a.m. before either heading out of town or up to Treasure Falls for a short cruise through Pagosa Country. This is a beautiful time of year in Pagosa to enjoy a Car Show. If you have not registered for the Car Show at Pagosa, you can do so up to the day of the event. Get your car out of the garage and join in. For more information about registration or any of the events, contact Stacy Kirby, events cordinator, at 264-2360 or events@ pagosachamber.com. Registration forms are also online at www.pagosaspringschamber.com.

fun and fundraising combine for a memorable evening.

Tony Award winning ‘Doubt’ on stage at Center for the Arts By Tim Moore

Special to The PREVIEW

Since John Patrick Shanley’s controversial play “Doubt: A Parable” burst onto Broadway in 2005 after a short off-Broadway run, it has racked up numerous theater awards (2005 Tony Award for Best Play, 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama) and was made into a film in 2008. The play, produced by the Thingamajig Theatre Company, opens this Friday, May 18, at Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts. But the play has something that the film lacked: More subtlety, more nuance, more “doubt,” if you will, as to whether or not Father Flynn is the progressive, caring priest he seems to be, or is guilty of misconduct with a troubled boy, Donald Mueller, the only AfricanAmerican student at St. Nicholas Church School in 1964 Bronx. Such is the charge leveled at him by self-righteous, conservative nun, Sister Aloysius (Laura Moore), the school’s principal. She seems hell-bent on condemning everything from the teaching of the arts to allowing students even the slightest bit of slack in the classroom. She is a forbidding presence that brings a force of rigid moral authoritarianism to the piece. Father Flynn (Tim Moore), a native of the Bronx, is compassionate, full of vitality and eagerness

to help move the church toward a less-structured future. Sister James (Anna Hershey), the impressionable young nun, is just beginning her work at St. Nicholas, under strict orders from Sister Aloysius to put more “starch” in her character and be alert in class. While Mrs. Mueller, Donald’s mother, is only featured for 10 minutes in the play, her revelations leave an indelible impression. One subtle action deftly demonstrates the entrenched hierarchy of the Catholic Church in 1964. Father Flynn is Sister Aloysius’ superior. She is in charge of the school, he, the church. When he self-assuredly walks into Sister Aloysius’s office and sits down behind her desk in her chair, it’s clear that in this time and place, there is a very strict pecking order. “Doubt” is a riveting play that grabs the audience at the start and doesn’t let go until the very final words. It’s almost a courtroom drama as Sister Aloysius cunningly tries to maneuver Father Flynn into a confession. The audience becomes the judge and jury — but of Father Flynn or Sister Aloysius? In

Community Choir presents Spring Concert

By Betty Schwicker Special to the Preview

The Pagosa Springs Community Choir will present their Spring Concert “A Journey of Life” June 1, 2 and 3 in the high school auditorium. The June 1 and 2 concerts are at 7 p.m. and the June 3 concert is a matinee at 4 p.m. As with all concerts, the choir

will blend musical styles. This year, the music will focus on the journey that we all take through our lives. The inspirational numbers include “Glory, Glory Hallelujah,” “Omnia So,” and “Lean on Me.” Other parts of the concert will focus on secular favorites like “Summertime” and “Sway.” The Jazz Ensemble will liven things up with “Fly Me to the Moon” and “Ain’t Misbehavin.” All the music in the concert will

that the tension in the tug-of-war between Father Flynn and Sister Aloysius not be broken. Shanley’s “Doubt’”is an unusually thought-provoking play. It’s no wonder that it won both a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony and that the film later went on to be nominated for multiple Academy Awards. Ben Brantley of the New York Times wrote that the play, “is an inspired study in moral uncertainty with the compellingly certain structure of an old-fashioned detective drama. Even as Doubt holds your conscious attention as an intelligently measured debate play, it sends off stealth charges

that go deeper emotionally. Doubt is a stimulating night of theatre that will give you much to talk about. “Doubt: A Parable,” opens May 18 and runs through June 3 at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts. The show is appropriate for audiences age 13 plus. May 18 Champagne Opening tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. All other performances are $15 with advance purchase or $20 at the door. To make a reservation, visit www.pagosacenter.org or call 731-SHOW. “Doubt: A Parable” is produced by Thingamajig Theatre Company and sponsored by Citizen’s Bank and the Pagosa Springs SUN.

Handbells 101 — free course begins in June By Lynn Constan

Special to The PREVIEW

A handbell choir is a unique instrument. Each member is responsible for only two notes and it is truly an experience where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. You may have heard the Quodlibet Handbell Choir from Community Methodist Church play, either at a service, at the Senior Center, the Chamber of Commerce or some other venue and been intrigued but been reluctant to participate because you aren’t a church member or

don’t have any musical background. Wait no longer. Lynn Constan, choir director, will offer a 12-week course titled Handbells 101. Classes will meet on Wednesdays from 5:45 to 6:30 p.m. beginning June 6 and continue until Sept. 12, with no class on June 20, July 4 or Aug. 15. Classes will be held at Community Methodist Church, 434 Lewis Street. There are some basic prerequisites, but prior musical experience is not one of them. Participants must be age 10 or older, be able to count to 4, know their right hand from their

left, and be able to attend at least 10 of the 12 classes. This course is open to the community and church membership is not required. However, the choir will be asked to play for a service at the Methodist Church at the end of the course. If the group is interested, we may also give performances at other venues. This course is free, but pre-registration is required since participation is limited to 12.

Elephant Revival carries a fresh sense of creativity and inspiration that is felt by people of every generation. The neo-acoustic quintet is on the cutting edge of an emerging new genre that is known as transcendental folk. Elephant Revival’s set at the Pagosa Folk ’N Bluegrass Festival is at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 10.

Phoebe Hunt and Elephant Revival to perform at Folk ’N Bluegrass Festival By Crista Munro

Special to The PREVIEW

Back in 2006, FolkWest decided to add a second event to its lineup, one that would take place in early June. For the first two years the fledgling festival was known as Indiefest, short for the FolkWest Independent Music Festival. The moniker proved to be too nebulous for the Four Corners audience, so a more tangible name was decided upon and in 2008 Pagosa Folk ‘N Bluegrass was born. Depending on how you look at it, this is either the seventh annual or fifth annual Folk ‘N Bluegrass festival — either way, a big deal. Folk ‘N Bluegrass will get underway on Friday, June 8 as the campground opens at 11 a.m., workshops start at noon and music on the main stage kicks off at 5 p.m. The 14 bands on the lineup

represent a broad spectrum of musical styles including newgrass, bluegrass, folk, folk rock, Americana and combinations of all of the above. This year’s bands are Mountain Heart, Jimmy LaFave, David Wilcox, Sierra Hull and Highway 111, Bearfoot, SHEL, The Deadly Gentlement, Larkin Poe, Cahalen Morrison and Eli West, Lake Street Dive, Jayme Stone’s Room of Wonders, Finnders and Youngberg and this weeks’ featured bands: Elephant Revival and the Phoebe Hunt Project. Young in age and conception, Elephant Revival carries a fresh sense of creativity and inspiration that is felt by people of every generation. The neo-acoustic quintet is on the cutting edge of an emerging new genre that is known as transcendental folk. The band consists of Bonnie Paine (vocals, washboard, djembe, musical saw),

Sage Cook (electric banjo/guitar, acoustic guitar, mandolin, viola, vocals), Dango Rose (double-bass, mandolin, banjo, vocals), Daniel Rodriguez (acoustic guitar, electric banjo/guitar vocals) and Bridget Law (fiddle and vocals). Individually and collectively the band members have performed

Everywhere Phoebe goes, she seems to sprinkle a bit of fairy dust on a crowd and take them out of their heads, connecting to their hearts, inspiring people to believe that they too, have the power to create their own destiny, to choose their life, to lead rather than to follow. Her music is inspired by all that she does and all that she sees. Audience members at the Pagosa Folk ’N Bluegrass Festival can hear her sing and play on Sunday, June 10, at noon.

with some of the most prolific performers of our time like Bela Fleck, John Paul Jones, Michael Franti, Little Feat, Yonder Mountain String Band, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic and Leftover Salmon. In performance, Elephant Revival reveals hidden treasures deep within a vast repertoire of original material and a few carefully selected traditionals. In one show, the quintet can be seen delving into Scottish/Celtic fiddle tunes, original folk pieces, traditional ballads, psychedelic country, indie rock, powerful reggae grooves, ’40s/’50s jazz standards and an occasional hip-hop beat amongst other styles. Elaborating on Elephant Revival’s live shows, independent film director Mike Eberle explains, “When I hear Elephant Revival I am struck by my inability to define it. I am forced to confront the music as it is, connecting to it with a virgin spirit of mind. Consequently it feels like I am experiencing music and all its joys for the very first time.” In January 2009, “Elephant Revival” appeared in Colorado Music Buzz as the No. 1 played local artist on Colorado public radio stations. A steady climb of radio airplay is being seen across the nation on NPR, satellite and online radio stations. As Boulder Weekly entertainment writer Dave Kirby enthuses, “The album brims with poised folk ballads, modern Celtic fiddle

dirges, hints of blues and Appalachia… coaxing the spirit but slyly avoiding climbing fully into each form’s body.” Marquee Magazine journalist Jefferey Keith further elaborates, “Following the lead, but not the footsteps, of groups like Leftover Salmon and Yonder Mountain String Band, the five-piece Elephant Revival has created a unique and appealing modern acoustic sound simultaneously soaked in all manner of tradition.” Elephant Revival’s set is at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 10. “I love meeting people who are inspired and motivated to dream, people who are willing to give their passion their time, people who risk failure but shine from their heart. With artists, those who care about their work the most are those who inspire the most,” says musician Phoebe Hunt. It’s hard to describe Phoebe better than she does in her own words. Phoebe lives her life trying to make a difference in the world through her music. Hailing from Austin, Texas, after graduating from the University of Texas, she has spent the majority of her “adult” years sitting in big white vans, exploring the country and the American Culture through the eyes of an inspired musician. As a student of the subtle differences between the East and the West, the North and the South, and hearing the nuances that shape American music as it is heard today, Phoebe’s

music is a pure reflection of her life’s experiences. Phoebe grew up studying the Suzuki Violin method, playing in string quartets, orchestras and symphonies, including the Texas All State Orchestra and The University

of Texas Symphony Orchestra. Her Austin roots led her to explore alternate styles of music during her teens and early 20s, playing folk styles where the fiddle supports a songwriter, as she learned from her experience in the Austin folk band, The Hudsons, to exploring the voice of the fiddle through master’s eyes, at such humbling venues as Johnny Gimble’s Texas Swing Camp, and the Mark O’ Connor Strings Camp. Phoebe is always hungry to learn more. She loves gypsy jazz, Texas contest fiddling, American old time, Norwegian tunes, and any style of music she can wrap her head around. In playing music, Phoebe looks less at the genre and more for the essence of the song. As a member of the Austinbased, multi-talented band, The Belleville Outfit, Phoebe has played festivals and clubs across the country, from The Strawberry Music Festival in Yosemite National Park and Bonnaroo, in Manchester, Tenn., to Austin City Limits. Reviews from prestigious jazz clubs such as Yoshi’s in San Francisco to The Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte, N.C., are a testament to her charm. Charlotte’s Creative Loafing noted, “Hunt sang like a woman from another time, and played her instrument, regardless of which style the band was conquering at the moment, with a sleek grace that was years beyond her young age. She had on a black and white striped dress and matching shoes, and would have easily been as comfortable entertaining a crowd at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, as performing at a party thrown by the Great Gatsby.” Everywhere Phoebe goes, she

seems to sprinkle a bit of fairy dust on a crowd and take them out of their heads, connecting to their hearts, inspiring people to believe that they, too, have the power to create their own destiny, to choose their life, to lead rather than to follow. Her music is inspired by all that she does, and all that she sees. If you see her, she is probably engaged in what she is doing, and buzzing around, getting all those around her excited about it too. New people, new ideas, new ways of living and new ways of learning stimulate her; Phoebe is always interested in exploring new directions on her violin, the ukulele and the guitar. On stage, she may sing a Billie Holiday ballad, and follow it with an original country song, reminiscent of Patsy Cline. She is a gifted songwriter, crossing genres from songs that could have been written in the 1940s, into more gut-wrenching blues, reminiscent of an early Bonnie Raitt, or more intimate modern sounds, similar to Regina Spektor or Feist. Regardless of the style of music, her soul is transmitted into the lyric, the violin, and the story she happens to be delivering. As a testament to Phoebe Hunt’s unyielding passion for learning, while participating in her first Mark

O’Connor Strings Camp in San Diego in 2006, she was awarded the Torch Violin, honoring the memory of slain journalist Daniel Pearl. The violin is a symbol of Pearl’s pursuit of truth and understanding. O’Connor told the Texas Observer, “We present the violin to a player who’s deserving and engages people during the week, and who would play the violin during the year and talk about the message behind it: of bringing people together to fight hatred in the world.” Phoebe says of the violin, “For me, the fiddle is a symbol of peace. Like Daniel Pearl, I believe that music is the one pure force that can bridge the differences between people. Without saying a word, two people who speak different languages can find a deep connection through a single note.” Phoebe sees life as a gift, and

music is an expression of that gift. “Music of every culture serves the same purpose: It is a universal language that touches the soul more deeply than any other form of expression.” Phoebe is an old soul well beyond her years.

Fellowship — a “congregation without walls” — with more than 3,500 members from around the world. The Pagosah UU Fellowship welcomes all who support the UU Seven Principles, such as, “affirming the inherent worth and dignity of every person” and “the free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” Joan asks, “So, who are we and who are we not?

FULL SYNTHETIC A Napkin Poem — a tribute to Mom OIL CHANGE By Connie Peters

Special to The PREVIEW

“But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” 2 Chronicles 15:7 Napkin poems. Poets are known for scribbling poetry on napkins. The poem below, “The Little Old Lady from Pennsylvania,” is a napkin poem. In a restaurant, I recalled to my friend how my Mom, when she was in her 60s, mowed three acres of grass. She liked to go fast on the lawn tractor, but when she did, she would get cold, even in hot weather, so she’d wear a winter coat and scarf. It was quite a sight. I thought of a 60s song, “The Little Old Lady from Pasadena,” and jotted some ideas down on a napkin. I finished the poem a few days later. This is one of the most important poems I have ever written. Reading it, you would never know it. It’s kind of silly. Why would I consider it so important? At almost 70, Mom was dying. On her birthday, my sisters and nieces sang this for her. She was in a lot of pain, and it was the only thing that made her smile that day. She died three months later. It was probably the best gift I could have given her. You never know how God will use your simple creations. Mom’s quirks in this poem are true. When she did housework, she wore underwear on her head instead of a hair net. I was used to it, but my friends found it odd. She liked burnt popcorn. After making popcorn for the family, she would burn some for herself. She said it tasted exotic. She also liked burnt hot dogs. To this day, when we grill, I burn one for Mom. And “redding” is a word which means cleaning up. It’s in the dictionary, but Western Pennsylvanians are the only ones who use it. She also liked to draw, and write poetry, but didn’t do much of it until the five of us grew up and moved out. She worked hard around the house and didn’t take time for herself. The Lord had to do a work in me to give myself permission to take time to write or draw and paint. For some reason we have labeled writing and painting as frivolous activities even more so than watching television, doing crossword puzzles or having long phone conversations. At times, I still struggle to view my calling to write as a valuable way to spend my time. I often write, even when my house is a mess, the yard needs mowing, or when I’m helping my host home clients with their meals. Writers have to write, artists have to draw and

A Arts Matter ofLine Faith

paint, dancers have to dance, and singers have to sing. As writing “The Little Old Lady from Pennsylvania” taught me, you never know how God is going to use your creative work. The Little Old Lady from Pennsylvania On a lawn mower you can’t tame her The little old lady from Pennsylvania. She puts it in fourth and pushes down hard, Scarf and coat a flappin’ As she sails through the yard. She’s the little old lady from Pennsylvania. For reddin’ up the house she has a mania, The little old lady from Pennsylvania. She sweeps the floor and makes each bed While wearin’ a pair of underwear on her head. She’s the little old lady from Pennsylvania. She fixes a snack to sustain ya The little old lady from Pennsylvania. Smoke bellows from the kitchen. The alarm sounds like a horn As she pops herself some burnt popcorn. She’s the little old lady from Pennsylvania. Go granny, go granny, go granny go! As a wife she’ll entertain ya The little old lady from Pennsylvania. She tells ya stories about huntin’ and fishin’ And gives her hubby what he’s a wishin’. She’s the little old lady from Pennsylvania. For a mother, five girls claim her. She’s the little old lady from Pennsylvania.

She kissed booboos and washed their jeans From the terrible twos All the way through the teens. She’s the little old lady from Pennsylvania. The younger ones call her Gramma Ginny, The little old lady from “Topple Beanie.” Tom, Nick, Jim, Jessi, and LoriBecky, Andy, Eli, Megan, and Allie. She’s the little old lady from Pennsylvania. If you love her we don’t blame ya. The little old lady from Pennsylvania. She writes her poems and paints her posies. Her lips are red and her cheeks are rosy. She’s the little old lady from Pennsylvania. Go Granny, Go Granny, Go Granny, Go!

Local author writes history of early Christianity By Carole Howard

SUN columnist, and the Library Staff

If you are interested in Christianity and enjoy history, a new book called “God-Consciousness and the Beginning and Spread of Christianity” by local author Fred Rose will be a great read for you. This book investigates the phenomenon of Christianity from historical, human and spiritual perspectives. The author documents the phenomenal growth of Christianity in its first 300 years — from the time that St. Paul was martyred, AD 62, to Constantine’s edict of AD 325, which named Christianity the state religion of the Roman Empire. As the book progresses, Fred explores the arguments for and against the existence of God, the cultural and political environment in the Eastern Mediterranean in Jesus’ time, the development of the Bible as we know it today, the teachings of Jesus as detailed in the writings of St. Paul and St. John, the challenges facing the early Christian Church, the apostles and missionaries responsible for the spread of Christianity, and the disagreements that faced the church during its first three centuries. The author admits that he has a special affinity for St. John because he attended St. John’s Lutheran Church and School in LaGrange, Illinois. As a result, he spends several sections on the life and teachings of St. John – an emphasis that pleased this reviewer because I have visited Ephesus where St. John lived for 30 years and also spent time in the cave on the island of Patmos 50 miles away where he lived in exile and wrote Revelations. There are a number of interesting observations throughout the book, including the assertion that the Sermon on the Mount was not just one sermon but more likely a collection of several; the statement that reports of Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem was one of the few times the four Gospel writers agree on an event in Jesus’ life, and the belief that Venus probable was the Star of the East that guided the wise men to the baby Jesus. After serving in the Air Force during the Korean War, Fred became active as a volunteer lobbying for people with disabilities, and served on President Reagan’s Committee on Mental Retardation. He also traveled widely in the west, discovering Pagosa Springs. He brought Jo, his wife of 53 years, to see our community, and even though her first visit was in mud season, she fell in love with Pagosa. They bought a condo in 1989, bringing the

Library News family for summer vacations, and then moved here full-time from South Florida in 1995. Over the years, Fred has amassed an impressive personal library of books on religion. Regardless, he says he was very grateful and impressed to find the wide selection of religious books available to patrons in the Sisson Library. His book is now available at the library for your reading pleasure.

On the same page, but reading a different book “I’ll be glad when you are through with this book,” my Sweet Al said. “You have spent a fortune going back and forth from here to Chimney Rock three times a week. How are you going to get back all the money you spent on gas from that book?” Good question. I dodged the bullet and went on. It will be finished May 1, then it will go to press and be ready to buy on May 15. Al was still calculating how many trips I took to Chimney Rock from last September until now. I felt like he was calculating how to feed 5,000 people with five loaves and two fishes. He was on the right page but a different book. So, I decided to drop the bombshell. I’m not planning to make money on this book. In fact, I am making this book a sacrificial lamb. I’m selling it for the price of the printing. If I could afford it, I’d give it away. Sweet Al was sitting in his big brown leather chair; he grabbed the overstuffed arms on his throne, he stiffened up, set his jaw, and his eyes went wild. “What? You’ve spent two years on this book, you’ve been gone ten hours a day, you are consumed.” I got spiritual on Al, but he didn’t buy it. You don’t understand, this is an anointed work; that’s why I’ve driven through snow and sleet all winter to get it done. It will be the finest work I’ve ever done to date. He wasn’t through with this conversation. “I want to go camping in the spring. When are you going to sweep the floor? I’ve been doing all the housework so you can finish your book.”

Artist’s Lane Betty Slade Yes, Cinderella. I didn’t think it was the appropriate time to tell him when the book was finished, the work of marketing would begin. Mikey, my market coach, called. “How’s everything going? How’s the book going? Are you on target?” “Everything is good, but Al is feeling slighted. He just plays with his new puppy.” Mikey whipped back a comment. “When the dog is a better friend than you are to your Sweet Al, you’ve got a problem. I don’t want to be morbid, but what if something happens to Al and you are alone. How important will the book be then?” “You’ve got a point, but ...” “You need to take care of Sweet Al.” “I hear you. OK. I’ll stop at 6 p.m. every night to be with with him”. “Don’t look at it that way. Be glad to run to the most important person in your life.” “OK, but, I just got a new iMac, I’m trying to learn all this stuff.” I went on to tell him, we found a place on Echo Lake perfect for the movie trailer. It looks like the Sea of Galilee. This chapter is almost over. For now, I’ve got to finish the book. By the time you read this article, the book will be finished. Al will have a smile on his face

again. Everything will be back to normal. Al will still be playing with his new puppy and I will be thinking of my next book. His eyes bugged out when I told him. What do I say? He married an artist, turned writer. Final brushstroke: It’s one thing to have a book offered on the altar, it’s another thing to sacrifice a marriage on the altar because of a book. I’ve got some adjusting to do.

Given that early-June deadline (yes, I’m having far too much fun with words), Loml and I have been scrambling to hammer out the details and, like a couple of Timothy Learys, paying particular attention to “set and setting” in our desire to see this abbreviated planning period pulling off both ceremony and party with aplomb. Limited time and resources have made necessity the mother of invention: We’ve so far decided to forgo a caterer (electing instead to whip up a ginormous batch of pasta and white sauce, salad and Costco bread sticks), a chi-chi rehearsal dinner (a family barbecue will suffice) or a decorator — this will be your basic DIY affair. Of course, the music has fallen on the shoulders of the Random Shuffle guy. We looked around for DJs and given the loot they’re asking, decided my sick music collection and mad skillz with a mix would make for a splendid evening of dining and dancing. I know, you scoff. You’re not alone. My colleague Randi (whose own nuptials are planned for October) mentioned the weather forecast in Hell when our officemate Lindsey suggested I man two turntables and a microphone for that blessed event. Fine, be that way. When your wedding reception dance party mix lacks sufficient Slayer or Jay Retard to pep things up after soporific standards from lame-oids like the Billies (Joel, Idol or Ray Cyrus, but not Holiday), don’t act surprised that someone has palmed the cake knife in order to give the DJ a welldeserved gutting. While most of you are reading this as you line Peetey the Parakeets cage, some of you are asking yourselves, “Why would Loml, for all that’s decent and divine, trust that jackanape with music for her wedding?” (with a subset of that group awaiting the inevitable reply that emits from a scary, cranial closet). Aside from the aforementioned awesome music collection and mixing magic (and trying to accom-

plish this soiree on a strict budget), Loml knows I’m wicked with musical knowledge (if not sense of humor) but nonetheless willing to put aside my hipster sneer for the genuine Mr. Happy smile. Naturally, not employing a DJ presents its own set of logistical challenges. After all, I’m 50 percent of the focus on that Saturday afternoon so zipping around to handle the music is hardly where I want to be. We’re not really off to a good start if I’m spending time searching up Sade’s “By Your Side” while I’m supposed to be cutting cake or polishing off my third bottle of champagne. Therefore, the Pod has been programmed with a series of folders set up for each step we’ll take during the day. Mr. Random Shuffle may be a bit odd but he is thorough. Given the tight budget, the majority of setting up the venues (the ceremony and reception) will fall on my shoulders and for that, I’ll need some pumped up jams to put the muscles and determination into overdrive. For Folder 1, think Snoop Dog’s “Gin N’ Juice,” or Mastodon’s “All the Heavy Lifting” mixed in with a fair share of The Game, At the DriveIn, Bitch Magnet and McCluskey thrown in. Guy music, frankly, for the dude’s labor at making it a glimmering day, grappling tunes made for a WWF extravaganza. Adequately pumped by the loud and proud, tables and chairs set up in both venues, with all the geegaws and lights in place, I’ll slip into a tux and await my lovely bride. At that point, Folder 2 seriously shifts gears for the gathering in the forest: Rossini, Mendelssohn, Bach, Pachelbel, Mozart, Vivaldi, et al. The usual suspects, sure, but I’m not sweating (now, that is; check me in June) the pretty-much obvious choices because, A) I’m not tremendously versed in classical music, B) Neither are 99.9 percent of those attending and, C) It’s all good. Really, if some insufferable music snob sneers, “Oh, ‘Canon in D,’ how expected,” I’ll be tossing the

bum into the Piedra. There’s only room enough for one music snob at this affair and he’s the one wearing the silver silk tie. With vows exchanged, rings slipped on fingers and the gladhanding in progress, the Pod gets passed on to trusted hands, the person I have instructed in the very basic but esoteric art of mix magic (really, they’re just folders, dude) and who will fly to the reception hall to plug in Folder 3 — The

Gathering. That folder is light fare (much like the grub we’ll be serving): Sinatra, Van Morrison, Dylan, the Beatles, a boat load of ’60s and ’70s soul and R&B, a smattering of ’50s Cool Jazz and Doo-Wop, mostly understated tunes that won’t overwhelm our guests as they seek out their assigned seating nor upset the digestion of the older guests we’ve invited. About 90 minutes worth of tu-

neage goes into Folder 3, all music that sets the stage for the music in Folder 4, the so-called Special Dances. In the midst of all this planning, I’m learning the intricacies of wedding protocol. For instance, I wasn’t aware that the bride and groom are supposed to be the last ones to arrive at the reception: I thought it would be the other way around but Loml learned me otherwise. What

we’re supposed to be doing while the crowd gathers and cools their collective heels is beyond me but ... well, I can think of some things we could do to kill time but, I digress and this is, after all, a family affair and a decent newspaper. Hmmmm. Anyway. The Special Dances had somehow slipped under my radar RE: wedding etiquette; during that part of the numerous receptions I’d attended I suppose I’d slipped out for a smoke or was raiding the bar. I mean, I knew there was a Special Dance for the bride and groom but was utterly oblivious to the fact that pretty much everyone remotely attached to the bridal party twirls around in front of a crowd. Which makes me realize why I’d been AWOL during those moments at other weddings and, from the list of Special Dances Loml tells me we need, I’m surprised my face didn’t wind up on the side of a milk carton. The trick to Folder 4 is two-fold: Not making it so long that guests aren’t slipping into a diabetic coma from hours of cute but also avoiding songs that are groan-worthy. As gorgeous as “Always and Forever” by Heatwave is (and a slow-dance favorite for Loml and me), it’s almost seven minutes long. On the other hand, Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful” barely breaks the twoand-a-half-minute mark but has been played for so many Special Dances that I’m pretty sure almost everyone will be searching for a champagne bucket to catch the return of pasta and white sauce. I’m thinking “I Only Have Eyes For You” by the Flamingoes (a slow-dance masterpiece), while not odious, is a little too obvious. Likewise, “Maybe I’m Amazed” by Paul McCartney is a bit on the overdone

Compare side. Yes, picking something that is “our song” should be where I want to go but we own so many of those, it’s like picking our favorite flower from Monet’s garden. On the other hand, the other Special Dances (Loml and my dad, her son and my daughters, my daughters and me, etc) aren’t as tough: Dylan’s “Forever Young,” “Betcha’ By-Golly, Wow” by the Stylistics, “My Body is a Cage” by Arcade Fire, “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green … the possibilities are almost endless, if not fun to cull from that large and sumptuous list. The cake cutting is also easy: “Cut the Cake” by Average White Band and “Cherry Pie” by Warrant is all that’s needed, like fireworks on the Fourth of July. The Main Event portion of Folder 4 is, as I write this, a contingency that might not find its place until that day. The final and longest folder is, of course, the party part. With everyone’s blood sugar redlining from cake and hootch, Folder 5 kicks things into high gear. And while that might seem simple enough, the trick is to keep most of the room grooving – no easy feat considering we’ll have guests from eight to eighty. And while a good DJ would be able to read the crowd, I’m going on intuition a month before the blessed event, mixing it all a priori, assuming with some confidence that I’ll run the table. Certain songs like, “Shout (Pt. I & II)” by the Isley Brothers, “I’m Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO, “Pump It” by the Black Eyed Peas, “I Want Candy” by Bow Wow Wow, the DJ Otzi version of “Hey Baby” along with some rockin’ blues like “Rollin’ and Tumblin” by Muddy Waters, or “Shake Your Moneymaker” by Elmore James, are sure shots, there’s no way people can

avoid getting up and shaking it like they mean it. Unfortunately, as any good DJ (or standup comic) will tell you, there’s no telling how a crowd will react from one night to the next. They’re as fickle as a blushing bride. Fortunately, Folder 5 is the only risk I’m taking on that Saturday afternoon; the rest I’m confident will go off like an Italian firecracker, eliciting all the oohs and ahs that bright lights and big booms deserve. Still, no wedding worth holding is without a magnum full of headaches and several fistfuls of hair. To return to Burns, “The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley,” and agley they will, laid down with all the chaos that has marked our existence since the universe snapped into being. Falling flat on our faces (especially with all the planning that goes into making a wedding absolutely perfect) is not just a sure bet, it’s written into the contract we signed when we agreed to take a position with the Human Race. Yet, after it’s all said and done, we get to look back on the SNAFUs and laugh with the love that blossomed and took root on that special day. While I may have my doubts about how we’ll fete friends and family, figuring out which dots need to be connected in order to get from point A to point Z, there is no equivocation at all that Loml and I have made precisely the right decision in tying our knot. More than that, with that one day (and all its bare-knuckle bellicosity) behind us, will inevitably endure and, to return to the Dixie Cups: We’ll love until/The end of time/ And we’ll never be lonely anymore/ Because we’re goin’ to the chapel and we’re gonna get married... jim@pagosasun.com

PAGOSA SCENE . . . YOUTH CENTER AWARDS NIGHT Photos courtesy Joanne irons

Pagosa Springs Youth Center held an awards night recently to recognize members who had frequented the center in 2011. Those members, in turn, honored adults who made a difference in their lives and presented them with trophies. Donors of the Pagosa Springs Youth Center were in attendance so they could see firsthand the work of the members. Dinner was prepared and served by Marcus Vincent and members who work all the dinner events at the PSYC, as well as private parties.

Pagosa pioneers often made a long trip to the San Juans Our notes on Pagosa’s pioneers continue this week with the following: Lulu Baldwin Crouse was born in Ohio during June of 1881 and passed away at her home near Pagosa Springs in February of 1941. She married George W. Crouse at Piqua, Ohio, in October of 1898. To this union were born Paul Eugene, Robert Earl, Worthe V., and a daughter, Mrs. J.E. Garvey.

He moved by covered wagon with his family to Pagosa Springs in 1908 and remained in Pagosa Springs until 1919, when he moved to Aztec, N.M. A blacksmith and mechanic by trade, he served two terms as Archuleta County Sheriff. He passed away in 1975. He had a brother, Worthe V. Crouse and a sister, Mrs. Roy Etheridge. Sarah Russell was born in Bourbon County, Kans., in May of 1882 to Mr. and Mrs. William Russell. She came to Archuleta County in 1898 and married Pet Crowley of Pagosa Springs in July of 1903. She passed away in November of 1956. Pet C. Crowley was born in Palo Pinto, Texas, March 16, 1878, and died in Dallas, Texas, in December of 1954. He came from Texas to Archuleta County in 1902 driving a herd of 300 cattle. Pet lived on the Navajo River and was a successful cattle rancher. In July of 1903, he married Sarah Russell.

Welch Nossaman is reputed to have built the first house in Pagosa Springs and verifiably was awarded the first homestead, property east of Pagosa Springs now owned by the Formwalt family.

• You have been told that the TV is too loud. • You have difficulty following conversations in groups and noisy places. • You ask people to repeat themselves especially women and young children. • Hearing from a distance is more trouble than it used to be, such as in a church or theater. • Family and friends have commented on your inability to hear.
