Community meeting Saturday By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

As of Wednesday morning, the West Fork Complex fires had burned a total of 81,331 acres, making it the second largest active fire in the United States. According to InciWeb, the only larger active fire is the Silver Fire, located in the Gila National Forest in New Mexico. That fire was listed at 81,363 acres on Tuesday. No updated acreage was available Wednesday. The largest of the fires in the West Fork Complex, the West Fork Fire, began June 5, from a lightning strike. On Wednesday, it was listed at a size of 54,714 acres. The next largest, the Papoose Fire, was listed at 25,236 acres as of Wednesday morning. The smallest of the fires is the Windy Pass Fire, which is burning west of Wolf Creek Ski Area and totaled 1,381 acres as of Wednesday. After days of impressive fire activity, fire crews may be catching a break. Tuesday was the last of six straight days of Red

Flag Warnings, which indicate large fire growth potential, atmospheric instability, high winds and low relative humidities, according to Eric Morgan, fire behavior analyst. “It means it makes suppression actions very difficult and complex, in addition to the complex terrain and fuel conditions,” Morgan said. But now, Morgan said, the forecast through Sunday is calling for diminished winds with the arrival of a high pressure system, though an increase in temperatures is forecasted. “Without wind, any amount of moisture or cloud cover is going to slowly contribute to the decrease in fire activity,” Morgan said. The high pressure system also means smoke will be slower to disperse from the valleys in the mornings. Until monsoonal moisture hits the area, crews will work to keep the fires away from identified public values, such as towns and Wolf Creek Ski Area. Parts of the fire remain inaccessible to fire crews,

Fires threaten water quality By Melissa Stedman Staff Writer

Not only are the fires threatening the landscape, they are also threatening water quality in Pagosa Country. With monsoon season approaching, residents can expect to find silt, ash and debris in their water sources. This turbidity can impact the capacity of reservoirs as well as the quality of water. Until the monsoon arrives, conditions are perilously dry. According to the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), weather patterns established in late April continued during May with persistent dry conditions in southwest Colorado. The Upper Rio Grande combined with the San Juan, Animas, San Miguel and Dolores basins were at 2 percent of

the June snowpack median. As of June 2, Wolf Creek Summit was snow free. Mountain precipitation recorded in the basins as of May was 60 percent of average. Reservoir storage in the basins have remained constant at 67 percent of average with a slight increase during the month of May due to runoff. At this time, the forecast for streamflows in the basins remains well below average at 120 cubic feet per second (CFS). “It is unlikely that the state will see much relief from drought conditions this year,” the NRCS website read. When rain does arrive, trouble could begin on another front.

Opinion

F?BAGHB>I

<=>??@> A=BCDE

Time to rev the engine An article in last week’s SUN included comments made during a meeting of the board of education that were critical of district leadership, noting a lack of “vision” and strategy — regarding, among other things, degrading facilities and an inability to convince the public to do something about them. Other remarks highlighted erosion of academic performance. Without improvement here, the chance of selling a bond issue is dead. If you don’t do an excellent job educating a declining number of students, how can you expect more money for construction of facilities? A comment was made that performing arts receive the lion’s share of attention and awards at the high school. Add sports. Sports heroes and “stars” dominate the day. Scientists, mathematicians? Not so much. In our standing ovation society, school shows and sporting events are too often more important than science fairs, inventions or creation of new software programs. Arts and physical education are critical. Extra-curricular activities are useful— but academics come first, behavior second. Entertainment third. According to recent evaluations, district schools are average at best in terms of academic performance. At the same time, an astounding number of students are reported on school honor rolls. How can this be? What kind of self-esteem-driven blather can be used to erase this contradiction? Further, students who fail to turn in work at the high school cannot be given a 0 in the grade book. A student receives a mark that allows a last-ditch effort to pull a grade to passing. A significant number of graduates require remedial instruction before they can take regular college courses in many subjects. Officials tout increased use of online courses in the education of our youngsters — this when the Chronicle of Higher Education reports 72 percent of college professors who’ve taught an online course do not believe credit should be given for the course. We have a system in which discipline has faltered. Cell phones are allowed in classrooms with the excuse they are being used for academic work. Is there proof of this? Arrogance, unruly behavior and disrespect are tolerated to a remarkable degree, all in the name of “saving” students (i.e. keeping them in school to provide funding). It oversimplifies the situation to hold only district faculty and staff responsible for an average system. As responsible, if not more so, are parents who do little or nothing to encourage real academic achievement and proper decorum. For many, a bumper sticker is enough; a sports trophy or the lead role is enough. Students, too, bear blame. But, a finger should point at the district and, in particular, at elected officials. What the members of the school board surely realize is that responsibility for the situation finally rests with them. We have a school board eager to hold celebrations, to congratulate any and all, but that might ask too few questions, make too few demands. This trend goes back to a previous board that hired an incompetent superintendent who, before his departure, destroyed morale in the district and put the system on a downward spiral. It is time for the board to rev the engine; the lack of leadership is theirs. If they want new buildings, they need to educate our children and demand students and parents behave, or be gone. The school board must lead the way in the fight for excellence in the classroom, and the first step involves a clear-eyed look at reality. Cut out the cake and cookies, the attention to statistical nonsense and trophies, and focus more intently on meaningful results. Do so, and the rest will come. Karl Isberg

Cancer survivors, their caregivers, family members, friends and other Pagosans gathered at Golden Peaks Stadium last Friday for the annual Relay for Life. The Relay is held to recognize those who have battled cancer and those who gave them care, to honor the memory of those who lost their battles, and to raise funds for the American Cancer Society to aid in cancer research efforts.

Who will fix the culvert? By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

The McCabe Creek Culvert, which crosses beneath U.S. 160 near Sixth Street in downtown Pagosa Springs, is rated as the worst culvert in the Colorado Department of Transportation’s southwest region. However, it may not get replaced until after it caves in and closes the highway. Pagosa Springs streets superintendent Chris Gallegos joined special projects manager Keely Whittington to brief town council at a June 20 meeting. “Something that Chris can help clarify,” Whittington began, “is a question that came up repeatedly during the recent town council work session. What is a catastrophic failure of the culvert? This isn’t going to be a sink hole that swallows fifteen cars over the Fourth of July weekend.” “The culvert is rusting on the bottom side,” Gallegos explained. “The walls and the top of the culvert are still in decent to good shape. If we start getting failure on the road itself, on the driving portion of it, it’s going to

start showing low spots on the road, areas that might need patching at first, before we see a sink hole. “I’ve walked through that culvert — there are actually two culverts — and one is a little worse than the other. The culverts themselves are structurally still round; they’re not collapsing at this point. I foresee that before we start getting any kind of total failure we are going to see an oval shape on the culvert as it starts bearing towards the center and we will see an increase in the deterioration of the bottom of the culvert. In any case, I think the state highway department will be able to see ahead of time the safety concern in the road failure.” Pedestrians and motorists travelling west along U.S. 160 through Pagosa Springs will notice that CDOT recently placed orange cones and concrete barricades out into the right lane of the road to keep people off of the sidewalk between Car Quest and the Making Things New store. Over the years, water from McCabe Creek has erodn See Culvert A8

Firefighters work to extinguish a fire early Monday afternoon that left four condos located along Davis Cup Drive damaged. Twenty-eight personnel responded to the fire, the cause of which is still under investigation.

Blaze damages four condos By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

The cause of the fire that damaged four condos along Davis Cup Drive early Monday afternoon is still under investigation. Pagosa Fire Protection District personnel were paged to a structure fire at 12:32 p.m. at the condos located at 145 Davis Cup Drive, said David Montoya, incident commander. Upon arrival on the scene less than two minutes later, flame and smoke was visible on the rear deck of two of the building’s five units with the fire beginning to impinge on the walls, Montoya said. The fire also, Montoya said, caused the gas meters to melt, causing a gas fire, but personnel did not turn

off the gas, in order to prevent a future explosion from gas buildup. Firefighters began exterior attack on the units, then formed crews to perform interior attacks, Montoya explained. The fire was held to units two and three of the condo building, with damage to units one and four. The area of origin, Montoya said, was in a corner of units one and two. The cause, Montoya said, it still under investigation. A total of 28 fire personnel battled the blaze, knocking it down in two hours, and gaining full extinguishment in six hours, Montoya said. Residents who were home at the time were safely evacuated; two of the affected units were vacant at the time.

A $6 million project to improve the intersection of Hurt Drive, Badger Drive and U.S. 160, located in Aspen Springs, looks to be underway this fall. The Colorado Department of Transportation project is expected to last from September 2013 to November 2014, with a winter suspension from November 2013 to March 2014. According to information provided by Nancy Shanks, CDOT spokeswoman, the intersection improvements include the installation of left turn lanes from U.S. 160 onto both Hurt and Badger drives, right-turn deceleration lanes from both drives, an asphalt overlay, shoulder improvements, slope flattening to improve sight distance to the west, and a section of new guardrail. Additionally, project crews will secure approximately nine acres for a conservation easement to protect the Pagosa skyrocket — a plant endemic to Archuleta County that grows in decomposed shale. The work will be completed with the aim of improving safety, improving the condition of the highway’s surface, and will extend the life of the highway by up to 20 years.

In order to begin work on the improvements, however, CDOT asked the Archuleta County Board of County Commissioners to quitclaim deed the existing and unused public utility easement in the area. That request came at the end of May from Travis Fischer, CDOT real estate specialist, to county planning staff. The request stated that deeding over any interest in the public utility easement would, “extinguish: the possibility of future claims to rights within the public utility easement, which will now be located within the, “newly acquired CDOT right of way.” The request states that the area was never used for public utilities. The project’s $6 million contract with Skanska will include the use of FASTER (Funding Advancements for Surface Treatment and Economic Recovery) funding, which comes from SB 09-108. FASTER funding is generated from car rental fees and weight-based vehicle registration fees. That funding is then allocated to state and local road-safety projects, with a general funding breakdown of 60 percent to the state, 22 percent to counties and 18 percent to municipalities.

Schaaf sisters reign as rodeo queen, princess By Lisa Scott Special to The SUN

The reigning Red Ryder Roundup Rodeo Queen Morgan Schaaf and Princess DeAnn Schaaf will preside over this year’s rodeo festivities over the Fourth of July holiday. Presented at the Western Heritage Event Center arena and grounds, the rodeos will be held Thursday, July 4, at 2 p.m.; Friday, July 5, at 7 p.m.; and Saturday, July 6, at 2 p.m. Morgan is 16 years old and entering the 11th grade this fall. She is active in varsity basketball, track, volleyball, FFA, Skills USA, 4-H, talent search, rodeo and Life Teen. Morgan has a large collection of animals in her life, including cats, dogs, horses, cows, pigs and a rabbit. You can see Morgan at this year’s county fair where she will be showing and selling her steer and swine as a 4-H member. She was the 2011 Red Ryder Roundup Rodeo Princess, has enjoyed her reign this past year and looks forward to this year’s rodeo events. DeAnn is 12 years old and entering the eighth grade this fall. She enjoys basketball, volleyball and rodeo. Spending time with her family and friends is her favorite thing to do and she loves her two cats, three dogs and rabbit. As a member of 4-H, she will be showing and selling her steer and swine at this year’s county fair. DeAnn has always wanted to live up to her family legacy and is proud to be a part of Red Ryder Roundup Royalty. Morgan and DeAnn have the honor of being the first sister team in the history of the Red Ryder Roundup Royalty. The girls’ family has lived in

Archuleta County for more than 100 years and they are the fifth generation to live and work on their family ranch. Their family has been competing in the Red Ryder Rodeo since the beginning. The queen crown that Morgan wears has been passed down for 35 years. Her mother, aunt and many cousins have worn the same crown that she proudly wears and DeAnn hopes to one day wear it, too. They have a brother, Lane. The Red Ryder Queen and Princess were very active this year in our community. They represented Red Ryder Roundup Rodeo in the Little Beaver parade and rodeo in Dulce, N.M., and Fiesta Days parade and rodeo in Durango. They will ride in the Fourth of July parade and reign over the local threeday rodeo event. They would like to thank all sponsors and the Western Heritage Event Center Board for giving them the honor of representing Red Ryder Roundup Rodeo.

64 years of rodeo This year marks the 64th anniversary for the Red Ryder Roundup Rodeo, held annually in Pagosa Springs. Cowboys and cowgirls from various states will compete for prizes and prize money in this multistate, sanctioned rodeo series. Rodeo participants receive cash and prize awards for their daily performances, including the coveted personalized belt buckle. The overall cowboy and cowgirl award is presented after the third and final performance and each winner receives a Red Ryder Roundup Rodeo saddle sponsored by Pagosa Land Company, The Pagosa Springs SUN and KWUF Radio.

Letters Voter fraud Dear Editor: In the letter â&#x20AC;&#x153;Illogicâ&#x20AC;? of the 5-23-2013 SUN, Terry Picket said that there were only 172 cases of voter fraud per year over the last 12 years. Terry referenced Pew Research as the source of his data which states: â&#x20AC;&#x153;A new database from News21 provides an extensive examination of election fraud cases in all 50 states and the District of Columbia since 2000.â&#x20AC;? News21 site defined themselves:â&#x20AC;&#x153;MEDIA PARTNERS: The Washington Post, msnbc.com, National Public Radio and the Center for Public Integrity.â&#x20AC;? Liberal partners donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want voter fraud exposed or voter ID required. The Pew Research News21 database included: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In early June, the News21 team sent requests to all 50 state attorneys general. Many of them in turn responded that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t track cases of election fraud and that the requests should go to every county district attorney in the state ... Dozens of jurisdictions flatly refused the requests, using variations of the disclaimer that their public-records law does not require them to create a document that does not exist, therefore the request is denied ... Another problem was a pass-the-buck response. The secretary of state or department of elections would refer News21 to the attorney general, who would refer the team to the county district attorneys, who would then refer back to the secretary of state or department of elections. It was similar at the federal level. The Department of Justice responded to a query by pointing News21 to the 93 U.S. Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offices around the country; many of those offices, in turn, referred News21 back to the departmentâ&#x20AC;Ś In some cases, there even was organized resistance to answering the News21 requests.â&#x20AC;? News21 had three pages of reasons for request failures, leaving very few legitimate responses. But a simple Internet search of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Voter Fraudâ&#x20AC;? gave me the following irregularity details: Here are the facts: â&#x20AC;˘ More than 24 million voter registrations are invalid, yet remain on the rolls nationwide. â&#x20AC;˘ There are over 1.8 million dead voters still eligible on the rolls across the country. â&#x20AC;˘ More than 2.75 million Americans are registered to vote in more than one state. â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;&#x153;True The Voteâ&#x20AC;? recently found 99 cases of potential felony interstate voter fraud. â&#x20AC;˘ Maryland affiliates of True The Vote uncovered cases of people registering and voting after their respective deaths. â&#x20AC;˘ This year, True The Vote uncovered more than 348,000 dead people on the rolls in 27 states. California: 49,000. Florida: 30,000. Texas: 28,500. Michigan: 25,000. Illinois: 24,000. â&#x20AC;˘ 12 Indiana counties have more registered voters than residents. â&#x20AC;˘ The Ohio Secretary of State admitted that multiple Ohio counties have more registered voters than residents. â&#x20AC;˘Federal records showed 160 counties in 19 states have over 100 percent voter registration. â&#x20AC;˘ The Florida New Majority Education Fund, Democratic Party of Florida and the National Council of La Raza are currently under investigation for alleged voter registration fraud.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious that few fraudulent voting violations get investigated with convictions. Also obvious, many registered voters have no legitimate credentials. Also obvious is fact that liberals donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to correct these irregularities. Why? Harris Bynum

Nuclear Dear Editor: The indirect costs associated with global warming are enormous and growing. There is a cost and risk associated with every action, even walking out the door. My concern here is the generation of electric power. Electric power can be generated with little direct cost and risk by the burning of fossil fuels, but the indirect costs are huge. The generation of electric power with solar and wind involves little risk but high cost. Wind and solar will never be a satisfactory solution for the power companies for the simple reason the Sun does not always shine and the wind does not always blow. The power companies will always need a backup. Fossil fuel plants will always have to be sized to meet the entire electrical load. It is relatively easy to adjust the power output of a coal fired plant to the load. Not so with natu-

ral gas plants. Starting up a natural gas plant is far more complicated than turning on the stove. The quantity of gas required is enormous. The power company must coordinate with the gas company. Time goes by. In my opinion small nuclear reactors such as the navy uses might be an option as a backup for solarwind-natural gas plants. The navy has safely operated nuclear reactors for fifty years. Small nuclear plants could be located in geological stable formations remote from populated centers. They could ramp up and down rapidly to meet power demands. I believe such plants would be a good balance between cost and risk. I also realize I am a voice blowing in the wind. The American nuclear power industry was killed by the media morons and the gutless politicians thirty years ago during the Three Mile Island incident. Three Mile Island was a classic case of a Montgomery Burns-Homer Simpson operation; stupid management and stupid operators. The American nuclear power industry is one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safest; true, Chernobyl and Fukushima have given nuclear energy a bad name from which it will likely never recover. Chernobyl was the result of faulty design and operators in a country that had placed no value on human life; Fukushima was an example of under estimating the power of Mother Nature. I believe these mistakes can be avoided but, of course, nothing is absolutely certain. I believe the nuclear option should still be on the table. By way of disclosure, I am a slide rule era engineer who spent most of my career working in the nuclear weapons business. Bob Dungan Arboles

Eliminated Dear Editor: It is with mixed emotions that I inform you that my tenure with PLPOA ended on Friday, June 21, because the Department of Community Standards (aka Covenant Compliance) management position was â&#x20AC;&#x153;eliminated.â&#x20AC;? I would like to take this opportunity to reflect and extend my gratitude to the greater Pagosa Lakes community for the many wonderful memories, experience and an opening to be of service to the association for the past 22 years. First, and foremost, the past general managers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Roy Vega, Waynette Nell, Walt Lukasik and Gloria Petsch are the true leaders of the association. They shared their professionalism and dedication for meeting the needs and desires of the Pagosa Lakes residents. The Department of Property and Management (Larry Lynch, Joseph Rivas, Bob Hujus, Rick Starr) assist with the many community enhancement programs including, but not limited to, the tree mulching program, Vista projects, trash/structure removal, appliance drive, Chris Mountain cleanup, and holiday tree drive. Last, but not least, there is the current and past Environmental Control Committee (Ernie Karger, Jim VanLier, John Byrnes, Mellody Gartley, Ken Tremko, David Butcher, Larry Olin, Ken Lavery, Pierre Mion, Ray Finney, Dennis Schick, Fred Ebeling, Hal George, Bill Pongranz, Arthur Matchum, Earl Eliason, John Applegate and Gordon McIver). The committee provides an invaluable service to the greater Pagosa Lakes to ensure that the property values are maintained and enhanced. I wish the best of luck to each Pagosa Lakes property owner, contractor and

associate in their endeavors. I look forward to the day that our paths may cross again. Margaret Gallegos

Cleanup Dear Editor: Boy, someone in an important position read your great editorial a couple of weeks ago and got moving. What a mess that was with insulation blowing all over from the trailer that was in pieces on a lot right on 160. Now, I hope we can continue with the next step â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that mess on the lot next door to the east. There might be a problem since I am sure that is private property. Cindy Gustafson

Gift Dear Editor: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only days now till Dr. Jim Pruitt leaves his medical practice of thirty-plus years here in Pagosa. I have lived here twenty-nine years, and although Mark Weinpahl was my primary care doctor until he moved, my now-deceased husband, Stan, and I saw Jim many times over the years, Dr. Pruitt has ministered to me and to my immediate and extended family in ways that far surpassed what was expected of him, and there was never a question but that he did it with a heart of love and genuine concern. Dr. Pruittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement will leave a tremendous void in the lives of us who call him â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doctor and friend.â&#x20AC;? Although I am thankful for our hospital and new clinic and the doctors and other professionals who serve us there, the wealth of knowledge and experience will not soon be attained by those who follow after him! What a true gift from God Dr. Jim Pruitt has been to our small mountain community! Although I am sad to see him go, I wish him the very, very best in the years to come. Beverly Haynes

Traitors Dear Editor: Many Americans have castigated Edward Snowden for being a whistleblower on the NSA violating our constitutionally-protected rights, calling him a â&#x20AC;&#x153;traitor,â&#x20AC;? but who really are the traitors here? Our government has been levying a â&#x20AC;&#x153;warâ&#x20AC;? against the People for decades. Recently exposed IRS illegal actions are just another example of this, and there are far more egregious IRS fraudulent activities against us all about to be exposed as well. Treason includes warring against the Constitution; â&#x20AC;&#x153;No state legislator or executive or judicial officer can war against the Constitution without violating his undertaking to support it.â&#x20AC;? U.S. Supreme Court COOPER v. AARON, (1958). What is the penalty for this â&#x20AC;&#x153;warring?â&#x20AC;? 18 USC§ 2381-Treason; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title, but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.â&#x20AC;? This â&#x20AC;&#x153;warâ&#x20AC;? covers just about every level of governments operating these days, but there is no accountability for this treason. Snowden had to, by law, reveal this government treason against the American people; 18 USC§ 2382 Misprision of treason. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against

00

them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the president or to some judge of the United States, or to the governor or to some judge or justice of a particular state, is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both.â&#x20AC;? Why didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t he â&#x20AC;&#x153;discloseâ&#x20AC;? the unconstitutional, treasonous NSA activities to a judge, or the president, or a governor instead of the public? Would you really ask such a question? None of those â&#x20AC;&#x153;authorities,â&#x20AC;? most of whom are already warring against Americans as it is, would have had the courage or character to expose this. Fifty-six percent of Americans polled agree with Snowden being wrong for what he did, and that NSA spying on Americans is acceptable. This means these 56 percent of Americans are traitors as well if they support authorities in warring against the constitution, the law, and the Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural rights. This is nothing less than a home grown domestic terrorist movement, bent on subverting the Constitution, our law and liberty. We can only pray that many more people who are knowledgeable of any such lawlessness in governments will have the courage and character to document and disclose this to the People so more Americans will wake up to the serious situation our Republic faces. Perhaps the People immediately applying the penalties of 18 USC 2381 and 2382 to all who actively assist, or passively condone, this criminal behavior would be a good start. Jeff Maehr

Informed Dear Editor: The purpose of this letter is to stimulate thought about fighting forest fires. It is not meant to be a criticism of current procedures or the work of those who fight fires. However, a question that occurred to me recently is: Would it be advantageous to deploy sufficient resources to control a fire as soon as possible? From updates, it appears that fires are rated according to intensity, and resources are deployed appropriate to the intensity. When a fire is manageable, that approach is cost effective and works well, but when weather and other conditions are adverse and control of the fire is lost, it is costly and may result in considerable loss of property and life. Moreover, after a fire reaches a certain size, which was apparently the case with the West Fork fire as it approached South Fork last weekend, there is little that can be done to control it, and what happens is determined by the weather. An alternative approach might be to deploy sufficient resources

to the max, but his greatest pursuit was getting to know his heavenly Father. David loved studying the Word daily and sharing it with his Bible study group and friends. His stories of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolute goodness and grace brought personal joy and growth to many of us. His humor, love and encouragement inspired his son Laithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and wife Mindaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dreams.

We appreciate you and your loyalty to our program and to Pagosa Springs High School sports.

Sixth-grade team There are so many things that happen towards the end of a school year, we often forget to thank those people in our community who make a difference in a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life by sharing their knowledge, expertise and time. The sixth-grade team at the Pagosa Springs Middle School would like to thank the following people who helped us to create

early to control the fire. Admittedly, that is not always possible, but when the fire is detected soon enough, use of airborne resources that are normally used to fight monstrous, out-of-control fires might be sufficient to bring it under control. It seems that deploying those resources earlier, rather than later, might be a good idea. How best to fight a forest fire is a complex problem, which presumably has been analyzed by responsible officials. It involves technology, human resources and financial resources. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pretend to be an expert in any of those areas, and I would welcome an informed discussion of factors involved in fighting forest fires. Gene Wissler Montgomery, Texas

LEGISLATURE

We have interior and exterior doors and hardware for every style and budget.

District-wide listening tour most helpful Since the Colorado House of Representatives adjourned on May 8, I traveled throughout our beautiful district for a listening tour. I held town halls in every county of House District 59, including Silverton, Lake City, Ridgway, Durango, Gunnison and Pagosa Springs. We did our best to promote these events as much as possible without using taxpayer dollars. At these meetings, I discussed my first-year experiences at the State Capitol, detailed the highlights of the legislative session, focused on the 10 bills that I carried successfully that became law and asked the audiences about their questions and concerns. I want to thank everyone who took the time to come out and engage with me at these meetings. My job is to listen and represent you and good or bad, I value your feedback. Overall, the people of the 59th District share many common concerns, many specific to the Western Slope. These include the ongoing drought, wildfire protection, education, transportation, agriculture, oil and gas production, our beautiful environment, tourism, the economy, water and small business support and development. Many counties had specific concerns. The people of Silverton remain concerned about the economic impact of their underfunded local schools and the underservice of broadband and cell phone service in San Juan County. San Juan remains the only county with no significant Internet service because they were omitted by Quest/Centurylink when all courthouses and schools were upgraded. This disappoints me, and I have pledged to make this a high priority next year and get

involved with the telecommunications modernization discussions that are happening. Like San Juan, Hinsdale Rep. McLachlanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is one of the least popuReport lated counties in Colorado. I appreciated all the questions about legislation, and specifically about SB13-213, the Future School Finance Act that will be submitted for voter approval this November. I voted for these reforms because our current system is outdated and severely underfunded, and if approved by voters in November, will benefit our rural counties tremendously. In Ridgway, we discussed education, broadband and cell phone service. Ouray is also drastically underserved and its effects on tourism, the economy and local schools is another issue I plan to address next session. Fracking was also a topic of concern, and I repeated my pledge to continue to monitor fracking to ensure that it is done properly and with the highest safety standards for our air and water. In Durango, we had a lively and significant conversation about education, the environment and the pending Future School Finance Act initiative this November. I also received great questions from a local plumber on plumbing inspection fees, the real cost to federal licensed firearms dealers and sentencing of sexual predators that I will research and bring back to the

Capitol with me. As always, I will continue to decide public safety issues based on what is best for our entire community and will ensure we have safe neighborhoods and safe schools for our children. In Gunnison, I was joined by Sen. Gail Schwartz, who chairs the Senate Agriculture and Energy Committee and Rep. Millie Hamner, who chairs the House Education Committee. What I heard from the people of Gunnison is they are most concerned about education, water policy, agriculture, and wildfire prevention, similar to the other counties. These continue to be my areas of interest as well, and as a member of the House Agriculture, Livestock & Natural Resources Committee, I will be working on all issues related to agriculture, water and responsible development of our natural resources. My final visit was to Pagosa Springs. I truly enjoyed this event because the citizens, some who disagreed with my gun-safety votes, asked good and thoughtful questions and kept the conversation very civil even if we completely disagreed. This kind of dialogue really leads to the most thoughtful and productive discussions, and I appreciate their candor and respectful discourse. Most people in Pagosa Springs said they are concerned about tourism, water, education, transportation, renewable energy and the environment. Pagosa is also poised to become a center of geothermal research and application and many people, myself included, expressed their excitement about that future development. I left the meeting and arranged to return for their pending geothermal summit.

Throughout the tour, there continued to be discussion surrounding the failed recall attempt and my support for the commonsense gun safety legislation passed last session. With most constituents, this was a respectful and robust debate, but there were occasional moments of personal attacks and outbursts that disrupted the meaningful dialogue that everyone else was there to have. Let me assure you, we may have our policy disagreements, but as a proud Marine Corps veteran, I remain committed to upholding the Constitution that I fought for. In addition, as a veteran, I also know firsthand the damage guns can inflict in the wrong hands. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I supported common sense efforts to prevent and reduce gun violence â&#x20AC;&#x201D; like limiting high-capacity magazines and requiring background checks to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, the dangerously mentally ill and violent domestic abusers. I appreciate everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feedback, whether you agree with my positions or not, and encourage we continue this dialogue in a respectful manner. Overall, the tour was a meaningful learning experience. I received tremendous feedback that I will take back with me to Denver next session, and I got to travel our beautiful corner of the state, which is always an added bonus. Again, thank you to everyone who came out to participate in these discussions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; your participation in the democratic process is why I do what I do. I remain honored to be the representative of the most beautiful district in Colorado and will continue to strive to fight for our families, our land, our water and our great future.

Bennet seeks interns for fall semester in Colorado, Washington offices By Phillip Clelland Special to The SUN

Colorado U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet is accepting internship applications from undergraduate students, recent graduates and graduate students for his Washington, D.C., and Colorado offices. In addition to his Washington office, internships are available year round in the following Colorado locations: Colorado Springs, Denver, Durango, Fort Collins and Pueblo. Interns in the Washington office have the opportunity to research various policy issues, attend con-

gressional hearings and briefings, draft correspondence, and conduct U.S. Capitol tours for visiting Coloradans. Colorado interns assist constituent advocates as they meet with and assist Coloradans who need help navigating the federal government, attend local meetings and events, and draft correspondence. Graduate student interns research policy issues and provide recommendations to senior staff. Interns may match projects based on their area of interest, including tax policy, small business, economic development, veterans issues, education,

entrepreneurship, energy, bioscience, or aerospace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Internships in my Colorado and Washington offices offer young people a unique opportunity to experience Congress at an exciting time,â&#x20AC;? said Bennet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Interns will gain hands-on experience by providing support to my staff and me as we work together to better serve Coloradans and bring true reform to our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital. I encourage any young person interested in the legislative process, a career in public service, or in helping me to fix a broken Washington to apply.â&#x20AC;? Interested students and recent

Summer Savings to Smile About!

By Marilyn Harris Special to The SUN

This year at the Archuleta County Republican Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Patriotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Celebration on June 22, the $1,000 Mojie Adler Archuleta County Republican Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Scholarship, named for one of the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founding members, was presented to Mikaela Marchand from the Goal Academy. This fall, she will be seeking a degree in fire science technology and a second degree in EMS training. In high school, when Mikaela wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t volunteering her time with the Pagosa Fire Protection District Recruit Academy, she committed her time to the varsity cross country team, band and, in her freshman year, took three honors classes simultaneously. Also, she has been serving the Pagosa community for several years as a volunteer firefighter. ACRW wishes Mikaela the best in achieving her future goals and hopes she will offer her services to the community once again after she completes her education. As chairman of the scholarship committee, Linda Bunney has worked extremely hard to ensure that funding for scholarships continues.

Enjoy the Fourth, but take fire precautions By Mary Jo Coulehan SUN Columnist

Please make sure that you check out The PREVIEW this week and next week for the Clip and Save Fourth of July Festivities calendar. This at-a-glance schedule will give you a day-by-day breakdown of the festivities from Friday, June 28, to Sunday, July 7. You can also access the holiday information on The SUNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website and the Chamber of Commerce website at www.pagosaspringschamber.com under the Activities and Events tab. There is a special tab dedicated to the holiday festivities. We will also have hard copies of the schedule available at the Visitor Center, as well as community maps. Here are some highlights of the holiday activities. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget that your parade applications are due by Friday, June 28, by 5 p.m. Bring them by or fax them to the Chamber at 264-4625. You can enter the parade if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn in your application by Friday, but your late application will place you at the end of the parade. Bring your entry the day of the parade, July 4,

to the Pagosa Springs High School parking lot, near the band room entrance on the north side of the lot. Remember that the parade begins at 10 a.m. Prior to the parade, you can enjoy a pancake breakfast downtown at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish Hall, to benefit the Pagosa Pregnancy Support Center. The rodeo will take place July 4-6, with a concert with McKenzies Mill on July 4 and 6 at 6 p.m. at the rodeo grounds. The carnival in the athletic field in Town Park should be set up by Tuesday, July 2. At this time, we are still not aware of a date for family night, but we will let you know. There will also be a free band concert on the Fourth of July, performed on the back lawn of The Springs Resort at 2 p.m. by the Pagosa Springs Community Band. Theatrical performances continue at the Pagosa Center for the Arts with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spamalotâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Full Montyâ&#x20AC;? being performed. Both performances are delightful and it is well worth attending these first-class productions. Beginning Friday, June 28, until Saturday, July 6, the musical

You can also enhance your day by taking a tour of the National Monument. There will be so much to do over the Fourth of July holidays â&#x20AC;&#x201D; just like there is every year. Visitors can also enjoy a float down the river, a horseback ride, a balloon ride or a hike in the thousands of acres and the many trails available in our wilderness areas. Contact the Visitor Center and we will help you plan your activities.

Fire assistance Pagosa Springs is a generous community and people are always willing to help out their neighbors. The West Fork Complex Fire is no exception. The Chamber has been getting inquiries on what items are needed for the victims of evacuation in the South Fork area. Homes in Pagosa are being offered as temporary shelters, and groups and individuals are also offering to assist with food. Here is the latest from the American Red Cross: While they know people would like to contribute goods and services, at this time the South Fork residents are being taken care of in the valley. Adams State University has opened their dorms to residents. The Red Cross has a steady stream of organizations in the Valley preparing food and they are on a schedule. At this time, there is also no need for bedding items. If you would like to contribute in some way, you can give a donation to the American Red Cross and designate your contribution to the West Fork Complex Fire. In this way, goods can be purchased to make meals and provide assistance. If you are looking to assist the firefighters, here is what can be done: Do not decrease your donations to local food bank outlets. The firefighters appreciate thank you cards and notes, and banners saluting their efforts. Perhaps your family, youth group or church organization can de-

sign and send out some cards or make a banner for a spike camp. As mentioned in the previous paragraph, the best way to help is to donate. Donations can be made to the local Red Cross or the Wildland Firefighters Foundation. Earmark your donation to the West Fork Complex Fire. For more information about donations, go to http://helpcoloradonow.com/. At the end of a public meeting on Friday, June 21, several residents and businesses inquired about what they needed to do in case of an evacuation here in Pagosa Springs and how could they get ready. In the May 16 Chamber article in The SUN, I mentioned some tips and resources for business owners and residents to access and assess if they are ready for an emergency. One very helpful website is the American Red Cross site, www.readyrating.com. You can register for free for the emergency preparedness checklist. You can also visit the FEMA website at www.ready.gov/community-andother-plans, which will help you through the emergency process. Does your business back up your computer data property? Can you function outside of your established business location? Do you need to take hard goods to continue running your business? Have you identified things that you need to take with you from your business and your home? Do you have a video or photos of equipment, household goods and personal items should you need them for an insurance claim? These are tasks that you should think about now â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not when it is too late. Take time to organize your home and business and get emergency-ready. A few hours could save you thousands of dollars of loss and perhaps great heartache. Another must do is to register for the free alerts sent out by the Archuleta County Emergency Services. Go to www.acemergency.org and sign up for alerts. Not only does this site give you the fire information, but it works

ed the ground around the mouth of the culvert to the point that the concrete sidewalk is completely unsupported. Daylight can be seen between the gutter and the asphalt. “I’ve got several concerns,” council member Tracy Bunning said. “We are at the point of making a decision after only three months of being aware of where the project stands. There are a lot of other options we could look into that might be less expensive, that might eliminate some of the concerns and problems, but we haven’t had time to look at those.” CDOT has already earmarked over $3 million for replacing the McCabe Creek culvert, but has threatened to take that money away and use it on other projects throughout the state if the town doesn’t participate financially in settling the issue of the downstream property. The major holdup for the project is a culvert that runs underneath a downstream building. Known locally as the old Sears building, which currently houses an antiques store, the structure was built in the 1960s on top of a culvert connected to the highway culvert. CDOT wants to replace the failing highway culvert with a larger, better designed culvert, but that cannot be

on the Rio Grande side of the Divide, however, it is slowly burning around the edges within the West Fork drainage. There have been 16,000-plus acres burned in the West Fork drainage, which includes areas above Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District’s (PAWSD) intake. With the lack of vegetation due to fires in the forest watershed, the runoff caused by severe rainstorms increases in speed and has little to slow it down, leading to the potential of flooding and soil erosion. According to the Burned Area Emergency Response Team (BAER) in their report on the Missionary Ridge Fire aftermath, the amount of runoff depends on the area of the watershed, including how steep it is, as well as the severity of the burns. BAER also includes that another condition that affects the severity of runoff during these storms is the water-repellant soils caused by burned plant materials. Gasses from the burned plant materials form a waxy layer on the soil surface causing the soil to repel water. With less water being soaked into the soil, the rate of runoff increases and surviving plants have a difficult time obtaining a water source. These effects of wildfire on the surface means an increase in flooding, sediments, ash, and debris. BAER notes that the effects of the runoff can be severe and life threatening.

done until the downstream culvert is either upgraded to a larger size or the buildings are demolished and the creek bed re-opened. The root of the problem is that somebody needs to negotiate with the downstream property owner in order to purchase the land and demolish the building. CDOT claims it is the town’s responsibility to do so, while the town claims it is not. “The council has been extremely diligent over the last two or three years,” Bunning continued, “with making sure they were able to stay within their income, within their budget, and looking at some of these cost projections, if we take on some of these large projects like this, I see us jeopardizing that position, and I’m definitely not in favor of doing that.” “I think the state is trying to pull us into something,” Councilor Kathie Lattin added, “that’s really not our responsibility. As community leaders we do have a responsibility for the safety of everybody on that road, but I don’t think this is something we should have to take on because it is not something they are forecasting will happen immediately. We should allow the state and the private landowner to figure out what their best options are.” “I think at this time it is purely hypothetical,” Mayor Ross Aragon

agreed, “because we don’t know what kind of legal responsibility we have. I don’t see how we can be asked to fund something like this when we don’t know if it is our responsibility or not. Our legal firm tells us that it is not.” “I’d like to see the state engage in the downstream issue,” council member Darrel Cotton said. “If they are responsible for the upstream acquisition, it doesn’t make any sense that they’re not responsible for the downstream as well. They have the ultimate responsibility. If it fails it’s going to cost them more to fix it than it would to do the project now.” In the end, the council voted to not approve Resolution 2013-18, thereby instructing Whittington to not apply for this particular CDOT RAMP (Responsible Acceleration of Maintenance and Partnerships) grant, which would have cost the town anywhere from $282,000 to $500,000 worth of matching funds, depending on which specific grants were pursued. “We’ll have to see how it pans out,” Town Planner James Dickhoff later explained to the planning commission at its Tuesday night meeting. “With that determination, we probably forfeited the (money) CDOT had set aside, so it opens up a challenge for staff to be able

to work with CDOT in the future.” While the town has decided to not get involved with the McCabe Creek culvert project, it has applied for another grant from CDOT’s RAMP funding program. This grant would be used to make improvements to the U.S. 160 corridor as it passes through Pagosa Springs, and is a combination of five key improvement projects along the highway, including: • Eighth Street sidewalk connections to the new lighted intersection pedestrian crossing, providing sidewalk extensions south along the east side of Eighth Street, east along the south side of U.S. 160, and north along both sides of Eighth Street. • Drainage facilities along the south side of U.S. 160 between Second and Third Streets, including two or three catch basins to convey storm drainage via underground culvert to the Hermosa Street alley and the San Juan River. • Pedestrian crossing facilities at the intersection of Piedra Road and U.S. 160, including 400 lineal feet of sidewalks leading up to the intersection along both sides of Piedra and 350 lineal feet along the east side of Harman Park Drive. • Sidewalk extensions from the intersection of U.S. 160 and North and South Pagosa Boulevards to at

least Navajo Trail Drive and Country Center Drive on one side of the highway and the Pagosa Mountain Hospital on the other. • Street lighting and 8,200 lineal feet of sidewalk improvements along both sides of U.S. 160 through the downtown area, similar to what was finished last year in front of Kip’s and Farrago’s. After the meeting, when asked if he had any concerns about CDOT denying the town’s other grant applications in retaliation for the town deciding not to participate in the McCabe Creek culvert project, Dickhoff answered, “No, I don’t get that feeling. I know this may appear to be a contentious issue, but we really only decided to not participate in this RAMP funding grant process, which was a new grant process for CDOT. It was really rough for everybody. CDOT only announced the program four months ago, and we only had a couple of weeks to figure out how to submit an application, so it was a very rushed process and we didn’t necessarily agree with the way this grant was structured.” Dickhoff went on to claim that the town did not necessarily reject the idea of participating in the McCabe Creek culvert project; officials just rejected this particular grant opportunity.

However, Town Manager David Mitchem explained the town’s official legal position. “State statutes give a mixed picture regarding water conveyances under highways. If it is storm drainage, those conveyances are the responsibility of the town. If it is a natural stream, it is Town Attorney Bob Cole’s opinion that those water conveyances are not the town’s responsibility. They would be the responsibility of CDOT. “CDOT is saying this is a complicated drainage system in that it flows under the highway and then flows under buildings beyond the highway. Because of this complicated nature they want the town to participate in the financing of a solution, and I appreciate that. They have been really great partners in other ventures throughout the community. In this particular request on their part, the town council has taken the position that it is CDOT’s responsibility, not the town’s.” A request for a copy of Cole’s legal brief was denied on the grounds that it was protected by attorney/ client privilege. Similarly, Nancy Shanks, the public relations representative for CDOT, failed to respond to a SUN staff request for an official statement of that organization’s position. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

“Water is dropping rapidly right now that the snow is gone and a lot of streams have dried up early and are drying up now,” Bob Formwalt of the Division of Water Resources explained. “The problem that we are seeing, and it hasn’t happened yet, but it will happen, is that once all of this (the fires) cools off and the weather changes and we get our thunderstorms that we get particularly in July, those water sheds in West Fork and East Fork are going to be damaged to the point that there is not going to be much holding that water back. It is going to get worse when the water starts flowing with ash when the rains hit. People need to be preparing themselves for that flow.” It was revealed at the June 25 PAWSD board meeting that the U.S. Forest Service as well as PAWSD staff and engineers are working on preparations. The Forest Service will utilize what is called a “Burned Emergency Response Team.” The team will assess the damage from the fire on the West Fork, analyzing the effects of the fire damage as well as predicting what will happen when it begins to rain. They will then request funding from the regional office for any treatments on effects. “In terms of the water system, I would expect pretty substantial effects to water quality beginning with the first rain,” Smith said. “The first thing that will happen is that

the ash will come off of the fire, the water is going to turn black, it’s going to have a lot of turbidity, and then we will also get some sediment coming off in the later rains. The greatest effect will be the higher intensity but shorter duration storms, such as thunderstorms. Up in the water shed, it’s pretty steep. There’s a lot of burned trees that are going to come down the river, rocks and sediments and stuff like that. Most of that will be deposited upstream in the intake, because you have a fairly long distance and a low gradient, so the larger material will be deposited upstream.” “Were you able to do mitigation in the wilderness?” Jeff Shamburg, project engineer for Bartlett and West asked. “It depends,” said Smith. “It is a little more restrictive. These are emergency treatments ... we won’t have any heavy equipment in there. We couldn’t with the terrain, anyway. It’s pretty inaccessible and, by itself, limits the potential treatments, and treatments for water quality. You are going to have water quality impacts.” According to Smith, at this time there is no concern with the Windy Pass Fire affecting the watersheds. Smith explains that this could change due to the fire still burning and not knowing how much more the fire will expand. When asked about the potential effects on the San Juan River, Smith explained that, because of dilution

from other drainages, there will be some impacts, but they will be less severe. “We’re really concerned about that first runoff of the ash,” PAWSD District Manager Ed Winton said, “Our contingency plan is to shut the plant down until it passes and then we could feed the town from up here (the plant on Lyn Avenue), but doing that we would have to impose some type of creative water management because we will only be able to feed one third of what is required of the town.” “That by itself seems pretty frightening, but as a management issue, over a twenty-four hour period we have the ability to run that Snowball Plant (near town) for a little while off of the pond after we shut that intake down,” Shamburg said, “We have the ability, not for long. We also have storage in the tanks that lasts a certain amount of time, so you could get through an ash event and get the plant fired back up before you ever see a crisis really hit. Its going to be management issues; its going to be forecasting how long the plant is going to be down. Do we need to have some sort of mitigation steps, or not? If it’s a twelve-hour event we can certainly get the plant back up and running and people would never even know it happened.” PAWSD plans to invest in a gauge that will be placed at the burn area in order to measure the amount of rain that falls. “The equipment that we are looking at will determine the rate of the storm, how fast the storm is coming, is it a soft rain or it is a hard

downpour?” Winton said. “The hard downpour is going to be a trigger for us to kind of giddy up; the soft rain, like she (Smith) said, is almost beneficial.” According to Smith, the effects of the fire could be seen in the water supply for one to three years. “Are there any cost effective mitigating measures that we can take that would reduce the risk to the intake?” director Roy Vega asked. “Is there any mesh that you can float on the stream that would catch the turbidity? For example, are there any screens? Should we be thinking about helping to revegetate?” “What we have done is we have proactively gone out and we have built a jetty around our intakes to take care of the debris,” Said Winton. “The ash will still be a problem so once we get through the ash, however long it is going to be, we can deal with the debris.” “One of the things that is advantageous is we don’t have to worry about the water running through and contaminating our reservoir. We can pick and choose when we can put water into the reservoir. “We are in the process of letting people know that they might experience pressure changes, lower pressure, or pressure loss at some time. Or we may ask them, ‘Please don’t water your plants or wash your car.’ With the help of the Forest Service we can kind of predict how long it is going to transpire. “We don’t want everyone to panic and say that this is an emergency — that we have to do this, we have to do that ... because it’s a critical situation

to deliver the same quality water that we do on a daily basis, and that is what we are going to strive to do. “We want to be proactive, we want to get it done. We don’t want the storm to come and then have people lose water pressure and not know what is going on. We know it’s coming; we’re being proactive, we’re taking everything ahead of time and our objective is to provide the same quality water during the event as we do every day.” According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), as of June 26 the forecast for the next seven days in the region shows high temperatures in the 90s and high 80s. On Friday, there is a 20-percent chance of thunderstorms. “It’s something for everyone to be thinking about. This community will be facing it,” Formwalt said of the problem with rainfall and fire areas. “It is out there and it could be a threat. It’s time to think about what the future holds and it may not be very pretty. It (the ash) may settle and not wash down, but we need to look at the bad side and be prepared for it. I don’t want to be an excitist, but we need to be thinking about it. “If it should happen to be dry the rest of the summer and the ash sits on the ground until the snow falls, then it may not be as bad as it would be if we had the hard summer rains that we usually get. There isn’t any vegetation to hold the stuff back. I hate to be down about it, but I think that is the reality.” Melissa.Stedman@pagosasun. com

dead fuels. Tuesday, there was spotty fire activity on the south flank of the West Fork Fire above Born’s Lake and the fire made a short run, burning in bug-killed spruce up a drainage interior to the fire perimeter. Structure protection sprinklers have been installed at Bruce Spruce Ranch and crews worked Wednesday to evaluate and implement any structure protection needs for additional structures on West Fork Road . Additionally, portions of the sprinkler system at Born’s Lake were run Tuesday to increase humidity and fuel moisture around the Born’s Lake structures. There is no known structure loss from any of the complex fires. For further updates on the fires, see www.PagosaSUN.com.

Morgan said, and the sheer size of the fire means crews are unable to cover every part of the fires. Morgan said the break in the weather, “Allows us the opportunity to take action on certain points of the fire based on the values at risk, with the primary objectives being firefighter and public safety.” It also means a break from the pyrocumulus plumes seen filling up the sky every afternoon. “What drove the pyrocumulus was wind and terrain alignment contributed to extremely fast fire growth driven by bug-killed spruce fuel,” Morgan said. “And, essentially, the fire ran out of continuous fuel out ahead of the fire.” While the larger picture is looking more favorable with improved weather, portions of the fires remain active. On Tuesday night, the northwest flank of the Papoose Fire was increasingly active, burning down into Crooked Creek. Firefighters are working to protect structures in the area. Aerial resources are working to keep the eastern side of the West Fork Fire north of U.S. 160, and crews are continuing work on a dozer line to minimize the chance of the fire reaching South Fork. Crews are also continuing to provide structure protection near Lake Humphreys and Metroz Lake and on both sides of Colo. 149. Minimal fire growth took place on the western portion of the West Fork Fire and on the Windy Pass Fire, with some flare-ups in pockets of unburned beetle kill and continued smoldering ground fires in the heavy

Wolf Creek Ski Area

Despite the Windy Pass Fire burning near Wolf Creek Ski Area, work continues on a new lift at the ski area, albeit a couple weeks behind. Structure protection teams are still staged at the ski area, and owner Davey Pitcher understands the situation and the need for fire to take its course. “We’re comfortable with the idea of fuel reduction taking place, and beetles are being killed by the fire,” Pitcher said. And while the fire remains close to the ski area’s permit area, there has been no spotting into the permit area in the last few days. “If they can manage the Windy Pass fire until the monsoonal flow, without the fire endangering the highway, we support it,” Pitcher said. Noting that spruce beetles have killed about 70 percent of trees

Fire history

The last major fire in the South Fork area came in 2002, as several fires raged throughout the state. The fire near South Fork that year, the Million Fire, began in early June, burning 9,346 acres by its end. That same summer, the Missionary Ridge Fire began around the same time, about 12 miles north of Durango in the Animas Valley. Later that same month, the Valley Fire began on the west side of the valley. Between the fires, a total of 70,662 acres and 56 homes were burned. Other large fires in the state that summer included the Trinidad Complex, which also burned in June, totaling 33,000 acres. The largest of the fires in Colorado, the Hayman Fire, began the same month just west of Denver in the Pike and San Isabel national forests, burning a staggering 137,760 acres. Last year, Pagosa Country became accustomed to smoke and the presence of fire crews with the Little Sand Fire in the Piedra area. That fire, also started by lightning, burned 24,450 acres by July 3, 2012, before monsoonal moisture drenched the flames. randi@pagosasun.com

CDC meeting to feature J.R. Ford By Muriel Eason Special to The SUN

With wildfire in southwest Colorado making national headlines this week, the danger posed by wildfire is likely top-of-mind with everyone. It is timely that the featured speaker at the next public Community Development Corporation meeting is J.R. Ford, who will speak about a local renewable energy-generation project, and about fire mitigation in our local forests. The meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Monday, July 1, at the Pagosa Lakes Property Owners Association Vista Conference Room, 230 Port Ave. According to a report just released by Headwaters Economics of Bozeman, Mont., wildfires are more prevalent, larger and more expensive than in the recent past. According to the report, the six worst fire seasons since 1960 have occurred since 2000. Bigger wildfires are generally the result of two factors. â&#x20AC;˘ The level of biomass fuels have increased, due to land management practices, overgrazing that reduced grass cover and encouraged seedling growth, logging of the large pines that led to a less fire-tolerant understory and aggressive

fire suppression that eliminated the natural, low-intensity fires that naturally reduce biomass levels and maintain healthy forests. â&#x20AC;˘ Changing climatic conditions: higher temperatures, widespread drought, earlier snowmelt and spring foliage growth, and escalating insect and disease infestations. Federal wildfire protection costs have risen substantially â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by a factor of three â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from $1billion annually in the 1990s to $3 billion since 2002. Wildfire protection now accounts for nearly half of the Forest Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual budget, and more than 10 percent of the budget for all Department of the Interior agencies. These figures do not include the $1 billion-$2 billion spent by states and local governments. The cost increase is partly due to more homes being built in and near forests and other wildlands that are at risk from wildfires â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; because special efforts are made to protect individual homes, which diverts fire control resources from wildlands, increasing resource damage from wildfires. According to the Headwaters report, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The increased fire control costs affect other Forest Service programs as well. The agency

often must divert funds appropriated for other purposes (such as) treatments that are needed to reduce the fuels that have accumulated in many non-WUI areas.â&#x20AC;? And wildfire threat and protection costs are likely to rise because of climate change and continued WUI home development. A research report, by Headwaters Economics, specifically for Archuleta County, confirms that the majority of local WUI is still undeveloped â&#x20AC;&#x201D; nearly 90 percent as of 2012. Archuleta County was ranked seventh in the state for growth potential in the WUI. When the national and local economy pick up, new development will likely resume. Will we proactively consider wildfire in our planning, zoning and approval reviews for new development? To avoid wildfire costs and impacts, local governments can take responsibility for sensible WUI development using zoning ordinances, building codes, set-back requirements and more. Additional actions could include mapping water sources and access routes and the increased development and dissemination of information for wildfire protection, such as increasing the use of Firewise.

USDA declares 12 Colorado counties disaster areas to drought Colorado U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet has announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has designated six Colorado counties as primary natural disaster areas and six more as contiguous disaster areas due to ongoing severe drought conditions. The designations mean that farmers and ranchers in these counties are eligible for additional

Farm Service Agency assistance. The six Colorado counties designated as primary disaster areas include: Dolores, Hinsdale, La Plata, Montezuma, Ouray and San Miguel. The six Colorado counties designated as contiguous disaster areas include: Archuleta, Gunnison, Mineral, Montrose, Saguache and

San Juan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite some relief earlier this year, right now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing how quickly our weather can get hot and dry, creating hazardous fire and drought conditions,â&#x20AC;? Bennet said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In what could be another difficult growing season, this assistance will help Colorado producers manage tough conditions.â&#x20AC;?

Producers in counties designated as primary or contiguous disaster areas are eligible to be considered for FSA emergency loans. Farmers in eligible counties have eight months from the date of the disaster declaration to apply for assistance. Local FSA offices can provide affected farmers and ranchers with additional information.

Warren Grams named parade Grand Marshal By JoAnn Laird Special to The SUN

Photo courtesy Warren Grams

Warren Grams, U.S. Navy veteran and former ďŹ re chief of the Pagosa Fire Protection District, will be the Grand Marshal in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fourth of July parade.

Retired Pagosa Springs Fire Chief Warren Grams has been selected as the Grand Marshal for the 2013 Pagosa Springs Rotary Fourth of July Parade. Warren typically walks with the color guard from American Legion Post 108. This year, he is being honored and will be seated appropriately in a vintage fire truck graciously offered by our current fire chief, Diane Bower. Selected from an impressive lineup of nominees, the committee felt Rotaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motto of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Service Above Selfâ&#x20AC;? exemplified Gramsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; life. Warren, his late wife Kay, and daughter Leslie moved to Pagosa from southern California in 1980. Within two weeks of his arrival, he became a volunteer firefighter. Hired by the Pagosa Fire Protection District in 1991, he served as the esteemed chief for 17 years. Along the way, he and Kay became vital and contributing members of the community. Warren has served on the Red Ryder Fair Board and The Friends of the Library Board; he is a current member of American Legion Post 108. He served for two years on the Republican

Central Committee and has been an active member of Pagosa Springs Rotary. He is currently the incident commander for Archuleta County Search and Rescue and was an instructor for the Colorado Firefighters Association for 10 years. Many of you will remember Kay Grams for her tireless efforts on behalf of the library and her wonderful efforts serving meals at Loaves and Fishes. Originally from Glen Cove, Long Island, Grams joined the U.S. Navy when he turned 18 and served for 20 years. He lived in ports in Hawaii, Texas and Wilby Island, and finally retired from the Navy in San Diego. His tour of duty took him to Vietnam from 1965 to 1968, during the height of the conflict. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is such a surprise and a great honor,â&#x20AC;? said Grams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you Pagosa!â&#x20AC;? Warrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Leslie, and grandchildren Roxeann and Matthew will be along the parade route to cheer him on. Accompanying Grams in the Grand Marshal float will be a friend, Kathy Lupien. Give Warren a big wave and a thank you when you see him in that great old fire truck. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sure to get a big smile and wave in return.

Relay for Life

SUN photos/Randi Pierce The Relay for Life is more than just a fund-raiser for cancer research. It’s also an annual celebration of those who are conquering the various types of cancer and the caretakers of those survivors. The event traditionally begins with a lap by the survivors in attendance. And like any good fund-raiser or celebration, last weekend’s Relay, held at Golden Peaks Stadium, had activities for all ages, a silent auction, performances and more.

County develops management plan for Cloman Community Park By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

A management plan is now in place for the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest public park â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Cloman Community Park. The 120-acre park is located at the end of Cloman Boulevard, near the Cloman Industrial Park and the airport. On June 18, the Board of County Commissioners approved a recreational management plan for the park, which was informed by the Regional Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails Master Plan. The recreational management plan for the park was drafted by the PROST (Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails) task force, with that process beginning in February 2013. In general, the plan includes proposed park amenities, implementation and maintenance, park boundary fencing, environmental assessment, and public safety. According to an outline of the plan, park amenities include the existing access road and parking area, a non-motorized looping trail system within the park boundary, a picnic area near the parking area, a restroom facility (first temporary, then permanent), a bear-proof trash can

near the picnic area, a pet waste cleanup station, a disc golf course, a bouldering play area, sledding hill, and a trail map at the trailhead. The implementation and maintenance portion of the outline states that the Archuleta County Road and Bridge Department will be responsible for maintenance and snow removal of the parking area and road. Archuleta County building and facility maintenance staff will maintain and regularly empty the trash can. Community volunteers will construct and maintain the trail system and disc golf course. J.R. Ford will clear any trees necessary for the sledding hill, and county funding and grants will be considered for construction of some of the proposed amenities. The plan also proposes that the park boundary be fenced, and an environmental assessment be done. For public safety, the plan states that the Pagosa Fire Protection District, Archuleta County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, ACSO Division of Emergency Management, and search and rescue will work to create a contingency plan in the event of any injuries on the property. The management plan is one of several steps taken in the evolution of the park, which has been an ongoing project for the county over the

last five years, beginning with planning efforts. In the summer of 2012, the commissioners declared the property to be a park and chose to name it Cloman Community Park. A road to the park was constructed last fall by county crews, and from last fall into this spring, Renewable Forest Energy, LLC thinned the property to improve forest health, with the treatment plan developed by the Colorado State Forest Service with help from the U.S. Forest Service. During the same time, rules were approved for the park, which include the following: â&#x20AC;˘ The park is open from dawn to dusk. â&#x20AC;˘ Pack in and pack out trash. â&#x20AC;˘ Pets must be leashed. â&#x20AC;˘ No overnight camping. â&#x20AC;˘ No hunting. â&#x20AC;˘ No motorized vehicles or travel. â&#x20AC;˘ No open fires, campfires, charcoal or propane grills, or fireworks. â&#x20AC;˘ No firewood harvesting. â&#x20AC;˘ No discharging of firearms. â&#x20AC;˘ No alcohol. The park is currently being used as a camp for the West Division West Fork Fire Complex personnel. randi@pagosasun.com

Disposal company, county clash over fee issue By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

Archuleta County has filed a lawsuit against the owner of the local company At Your Disposal, alleging thousands of dollars in unpaid landfill fees. According to the complaint, which was filed late last week, the county is alleging that Kathryn M. Young, owner of At Your Disposal, owes $15,654.25 in unpaid fees for using the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landfill.

The suit was filed against Young as an individual because At Your Disposal is a trade name, with the local business not otherwise incorporated, according to Todd Starr, Archuleta County attorney. According to the complaint, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Between July 31, 2012 and March 2013, Plaintiff rendered landfill services to Defendant at Defendantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request by allowing Defendant to dump trash at the Archuleta County Landfill.â&#x20AC;? Further, the complaint states:

â&#x20AC;&#x153;10. Plaintiff has demanded that Defendant pay the sum mentioned above, but Defendant refused, and continues to refuse, to pay Plaintiff any part of it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;11. In the alternative, and in the event this court finds there was no contract, then Plaintiff is entitled to recover from Defendant, in quantum meruit, for the value of services performed at Defendantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request and for Defendantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use and benefit in the sum to be determined at trial.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;WHEREFORE, Plaintiff prays for judgment against defendant for Fifteen Thousand Six Hundred Fifty Four Dollars and Twenty-Five Cents ($15,654.25) or the reasonable value of services provided, for its attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fees and costs incurred herein and for such other and further relief as the Court deems just and equitable.â&#x20AC;? Starr said Young was served with the lawsuit on June 21, and now has 20 days to answer, landing the response deadline on July 11. But Young indicated Tuesday she has attempted to contact the county. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have tried to get together with the county on this and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten no response,â&#x20AC;? Young said, indicating she has attempted to meet with both solid waste staff and commissioners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just kind of waiting on them.â&#x20AC;? randi@pagosasun.com

additional funds raised will be allocated for remodeling of the mammography suite at the hospital, the purchase of additional equipment and the patient navigator, as well as to fund low cost mammographies for low income women. According to Claire Bradshaw, director of development, and Brad Cochennet, CEO, the startup date is predicted to be between October and the first of the year 2014. Cochennet updated the board of directors during a regular board meeting on June 25 on the current status of Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environ-

ments (CDPHE) visits. â&#x20AC;˘ On the first site visit, the CDPHE accepted the Plan of Correction (PoC) with a required change to the timeline. The new date of completion is now July 1, rather than July 31. â&#x20AC;˘ A new sliding scale fee structure has been developed for medical school loan repayment and is now being implemented. â&#x20AC;˘ A life safety survey was conducted. There has been a written report presented that indicates all areas of deficiencies. These deficiencies are being addressed. The estimated cost of compliance is $40,000.

â&#x20AC;˘ The routine annual State Pharmacy Board evaluation produced a written report stating that PSMC did not have deficiencies. â&#x20AC;˘ PSMC received a report from the Colorado Hospital Association Emergency Preparedness stating that PSMC did not have any deficiencies. â&#x20AC;˘ A new update to a previous survey from February 2013, a Survey of Medical Records, reported that PSMC did not have any deficiencies. Future visits from CDPHE are pending. Melissa.Stedman@pagosasun. com

unserviceable flags for disposal By Roy Vega Special to The SUN

On June 14, we celebrated Flag Day. This day provided us with the opportunity to fly our flags and to replace any that were so faded, worn or frayed as to no longer be respectful of what they represent. Once again, American Legion Mullins-Nickerson Post 108 is collecting unserviceable American

and Colorado flags for proper retirement and disposal. Flags in unserviceable condition should be disposed of with dignity. The American Legion provides this service, and worn flags may be turned in to any Legionnaire, left at the Archuleta County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office in the courthouse or at Vega Insurance and Financial Services office at 818 Rosita St. (across the highway from the Ruby Sisson Library).

Pagosa Springs Skate Competition Saturday

)ULGD\ 6DWXUGD\-XO\WK WK DPWRSPHDFKGD\ S \

By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

&DPSLQJ

The seventh annual Pagosa Springs Skate Competition will take place this Saturday, June 29, at the Yamaguchi Skate Park and will include a live DJ, plenty of food vendors and prize giveaways, with all proceeds from the event going towards the construction of the second phase of the skate park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This Saturday is the seventh annual competition fund-raiser,â&#x20AC;? Parks and Recreation Commission Chair Mike Musgrove announced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fund-raiser, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a way to give the skaters a chance to showcase their abilities and keep the stoke alive by having an event down there for the kids. There will be a five dollar entry fee for the contestants, but it will be free for spectators to watch.â&#x20AC;? The skate park is located in Yamaguchi Park near the Terrazzo structure, across South 5th Street from the high school football field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Competitor sign-up will begin at nine oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock on Saturday morning,â&#x20AC;? Musgrove explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and the first competition, which is the Game of SKATE, will begin at 10. The game of SKATE is pretty straight forward: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basically like the game of HORSE with basketball. One person does a trick and then everyone else has to do the same trick to avoid getting a letter.â&#x20AC;? Joe Weber and Zach Maun, two well-known names in the local skating community, will be running the street competition, which will begin at 11:30 a.m. This event will be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;best trickâ&#x20AC;? competition and it will be divided into age groups. In the past, contestants have ranged in age from 6 to 36. While Pagosa has a strong skating community, the event has attracted participants

The seventh annual Pagosa Springs Skate Competition will take place Saturday, June 29, at the Yamaguchi Skate Park and will include a live DJ, food vendors and prize giveaways, with all proceeds from the event going towards the construction of the second phase of the skate park. The Skaters Coalition for Concrete, a community based, not-for-proďŹ t group of local skateboarding supporters, recently installed these donor tiles and the recognition plaque to honor those who helped make the ďŹ rst phase of the park a reality.

from a number of surrounding communities, particularly Durango. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be prizes and giveaways for the competitors,â&#x20AC;? Musgrove continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be food and a DJ, and we will have T-shirts for sale. Subway donated a six-foot sub, so we will be selling slices of that for a dollar each. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some pizzas from DSP and we will sell slices of that for a couple dollars each. All of the food will be donated to help us raise money. We will be selling tiles for donors and we will be doing another plaque.â&#x20AC;? Besides his work with the Pagosa Springs Parks and Recreation Commission, Musgrove is also a member of The Skaters Coalition for Concrete, which is presenting this competition and fund-raiser. According to their website (www. skaterscoalitionforconcrete.com), they are a community-based, notfor-profit group of skateboarding supporters dedicated to working with the Town of Pagosa Springs to facilitate the construction of a concrete skateboard park in Pagosa Springs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have teamed up with the Colorado Coalition for Public Skate Parks,â&#x20AC;? Musgrove explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which is a 501(c)(3) out of Denver. They are our fiscal sponsor so we

have a non-profit status. If you click on the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Donateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; button on our website, we have a PayPal account set up for phase two, which is a really cool feature that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think a lot of people know about. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all tax deductible; we send out tax receipts at the end of the year. We just finished the signage at the skate park. We installed all of the donor tiles and the recognition plaque this weekend.â&#x20AC;? Besides a number of private individual and business donors, the first phase of the skate park was funded with $50,000 of Archuleta County A1 funds and $30,000 from the Town of Pagosa Springs. The town also donated the land in Yamaguchi Park where the site is located. In addition, the town is pursuing grant opportunities for the second phase of the project to supplement whatever funds the skaters are able to raise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got a pretty substantial donation from The Springs Resort,â&#x20AC;? Musgrove said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They initially committed fifty thousand dollars, so they are giving us ten thousand dollars a year for five years. They gave us ten thousand in 2011 for the first phase, and then ten thousand in 2012 and ten thousand in 2013, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got twenty thousand

In 2009, the Pagosa Springs Disc Golf Club received permission to construct a nine-hole disc golf course on Reservoir Hill. Not soon after, due to the influx of visitors and locals enjoying the new entertainment, Archuleta County provided 1A funding to the club, allowing it to formalize the course as well expand it to an 18-hole course. Since then, the disc golf scene in Pagosa has flourished. Visitors from across the state have visited Pagosa Springs and challenged themselves on the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s course. The Reservoir Hill course has been called one of the top 10 disc golf courses in Colorado and one of the best in the southwest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are proud of that,â&#x20AC;? said Mat deGraaf of the PDGC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have put a lot of work in to that. It deserves the recognition that it has.â&#x20AC;? Now locals and visitors will have a chance to challenge themselves even more while playing on the updated Reservoir Hill course, as well as to enjoy the new Cloman Park course as they show off their disc golf moves.

Reservoir Hill The PDGC began building alternative boxes for the Reservoir Hill course a few years ago. The purpose is to have 36 tee boxes utilizing the 18 already standing baskets. With the alternative boxes, the same baskets are used, however, the teebox is in a different location. This allows for a more difficult course for players looking to challenge themselves during the game, as well as relieving congestion. Recently, the PDGC has signed the teeboxes, providing players with distances and course layouts. The new signs add variety to the course as well as make the course more official. Reservoir Hill offers more topographical changes on the course than a player experiences at Cloman Park. It is a technical course, with gains and losses in elevations. According to deGraaf, it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;requires a good bag of tricks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We intentionally designed it to be more on the advanced side,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The caliber of players that have learned to play at Reservoir Hill have said that other courses were too easy. Reservoir Hill has more of a technical style that employs creativity.â&#x20AC;? The standard, or recreational course at Reservoir Hill has been dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Eagle.â&#x20AC;? The alternate boxes are named â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ravenâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a more advanced addition to the course.

Cloman Park This summer, the PDGC will order new baskets for the Cloman Park course. The Cloman course will include 18 standard boxes as well as 18 alternative boxes. Cloman is a much flatter, open course than the one on Reservoir Hill, but the distances involved will be greater. While it will be less technical, it will require more power. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of what comes in is the technology with discs,â&#x20AC;? deGraaf said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ten years ago, the average person couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t throw a disc four hundred feet; however, now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncommon for people to reach those distances. We are making a long course, anticipating technology to evolve. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it to be outdated. A decade ago, the technology was different. We are looking to the future and building the course that way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the space provided, it is wonderful. When you are designing a course, you have to work around obstacles for trails and facilities. Cloman is an open palette. We can paint as we desire. It is a unique opportunity to create the course that we want. That is what will set

the standard, allowing Pagosa to be a disc golf destination.â&#x20AC;? Due to a tree thinning project in Cloman Park, the time for finishing the course has been delayed. At present, the club is working to have the course open by the end of summer or by early fall.

Donations and community Both the Reservoir Hill course and the expansion for the Cloman Park course have been supported through fund-raising opportunities by the PDGC. This past winter, the Town Tourism Committee (TTC) granted the PGDC $4,900 for the Reservoir Hill signage as well as for Cloman course baskets. The remainder of the funds have been acquired through fund-raising efforts in the community and with individual donors. Main sponsors include Good Earth Meds. Donations were also made by Pagosa Outside, DSP Pizza, Kipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cantina, Wiley Merfeld, Dave Bellina, Mat and Jamie deGraaf, Musgrove Fine Woodworking, Friends of the Upper San Juan, Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ace Hardware and PDGC member dues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Its been overwhelming, but we have done a lot in the past four years and we hope to do a lot more. And the local businesses have been great,â&#x20AC;? deGraaf said. Residents and visitors can purchase donation discs at Pagosa Outside. Each year, the PDGC prints up a different disc model. This year, the club has printed up the Tee-Bird disc from Innova. Sales of these donation discs provides funds to the club, and all of the proceeds go to the purchase of items such as new signs and baskets. According to Toby Rohwer, since the addition of the course on Reservoir Hill, visitor and community involvement in the game has expanded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has absolutely blown up,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awesome. Dave and Mat talked me into stocking discs (at

Pagosa Outside) and it was something I had never done before. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been very cool. For the past four years, every year, we have had to double our inventory. We are moving a lot of disc inventory. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty cool.â&#x20AC;? Pagosa Springs High School students have also become involved in the game through disc golf classes and programs. The PDGC website was built as an IT class project at the high school. All of the work on the website has been completed by students and the project wil continue to evolve as the class continues.

The future of disc golf According to deGraaf, both the Cloman and Reservoir Hill courses could be potential world-class sites. With their elevations and the local climate, they are both very good candidates to become sanctioned tournament sites, which puts them in the running to host large, national tournaments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is the big driver,â&#x20AC;? deGraaf said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to get the second course at Cloman and to be able to host multi-day events. One course one day, another course a second day. We could do that in July, which is a great time of year here. There isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of pro play in July and early August that can offer that. A representative from the Disc Golf Association came out to see what we were doing and was thrilled about what was seen at Reservoir Hill. He wanted to lend a hand and thought it was a great direction that we were moving in.â&#x20AC;? At present, the club hosts two annual tournaments on Reservoir Hill. The entry money goes to prize purses and disc golf and promotional items. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is my contribution to the community,â&#x20AC;? deGraaf said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;People visit here because of these amenities. This town has so much to offer, but little to offer for kids. Families vacation here and there is the river, which is great, but disc golf offers a great option â&#x20AC;&#x201D; low-cost hours of

In the Second Flight, Ken Bailey and a teammate from Los Alamos, N.M., won Second Gross (70). The second day of play was individual stroke play on the Meadows and Ponderosa courses, with conditions of play a bit blustery. The Pagosa men again were extremely successful with five more winners. In the Championship Flight, Malcolm Rodger won Second Gross (82) and Dale Crumpton won Second Net (70). In the Second Flight, Roger Betts

won Second Gross (84). In the Third Flight, Ranza Boggess won First Net (70) and Ken Bailey was Closest to the Pin on Meadows No. 6. The third and final day of play again followed the individual stroke play format, which was played on the Pinon and Ponderosa courses. This day blossomed with six Pagosa Springs winners. In the Championship Flight, Buzz Burke won First Net (72). In the First Flight, Malcolm Rodger won First Net (68) and Dale Crumpton won Second Net (72). In the Second Flight, James Easley won First Gross (81) and Roger Betts won Second Gross (86). And, finally, the Fourth Flight, Ken Bailey won First Gross (86).

Community mapping workshop 247-8955 Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shooting set for July 1 in Pagosa Springs Sports workshop  Please call

1717 E. 2nd Ave. Durango, CO www.alpineorthodontics.net

By Natalie Woodruff Special to The SUN

For the 13th year, volunteers and District Wildlife Managers (DWMs) from the Colorado Parks and Wildlife will offer the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shooting Sports workshop on July 12, 13 and 14. Sixty women will have the opportunity to have classroom and range training on gun safety and handling. In addition to the DWMs, instructors include retired and current law enforcement personnel, hunter education instructors and other volunteers with years of knowledge and experience. The classroom portion of the workshop is Friday evening and includes dinner. All 60 women must attend this portion of the workshop. Women will learn pertinent firearm terminology, talk about the responsibility of owning and using firearms and other â&#x20AC;&#x153;classroomâ&#x20AC;? subjects. For the range portion of the workshop, the class is split into two groups. Thirty women will have a full day at the range on either Saturday or Sunday. Range day includes breakfast and lunch. There will be six dif-

ferent stations women will visit during the day. Five women at a time will visit each station and rotate through all six stations during the day. The six stations will be Archery, .22 Rifles, Pistols, Muzzleloaders, Shotguns and Large Caliber Rifles. Firearms and ammunition are all supplied. Participants can bring their own firearm and ammunition and have the opportunity to become more familiar with their particular firearm. Archuleta County Sheriff Peter Gonzales recognizes completion of this class as the required training for an Archuleta County resident to obtain a concealed carry permit. The workshop fee is $50 per person. There is room for approximately 23 more participants. At this time, Sunday is the only range day available. If you would like more information or an application, e-mail Natalie Woodruff at mnwoodruff@skywerx.com or call 749-4209. Applications can be e-mailed or picked up. Availability is on a first-come, first-served basis. Application and payment to Natalie confirms attendance.

A workshop dealing with a community-based mapping process will be held July 1 in Pagosa Springs. Colorado and New Mexico are facing oil and gas leasing decisions that may affect landscapes and communities for decades to come. Responsible energy development can bring positive economic benefits and provide American energy independence. Unplanned energy development, however, can inadvertently injure the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environment, economy and quality of life. To help communities proactively and constructively engage in energy planning, a unique partnership of counties and non-governmental organizations is conducting a community-based mapping process to identify critical community resources such as municipal water supplies, high-value recreation, wildlife and agricultural production areas that may be impacted by energy development. The goal is to create a basis for landscape-scale planning of energy development that incorporates important community values in need of protection in order to lead to better planning outcomes from a variety of perspectives. The effort is not advocating for or against energy development, but is assisting the community in thoughtful planning and impact mitigation. The mapping process is a transparent and interactive community-

Protect your livestock from predators By Colorado Parks and Wildlife Special to The SUN

Small livestock owners who live in areas where wildlife might be nearby are being asked by Colorado Parks and Wildlife to take extra steps to protect their animals. More and more people throughout Colorado â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and not just in rural areas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are keeping livestock.

A recent incident near Paonia in which a bear killed 40 chickens provides a reminder that wildlife will aggressively seek sources of food. Not only bears, but mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes and raccoons also prey on livestock. Small domestic animals such as chickens, goats, miniature horses, sheep and pets are particularly vulnerable. The bear was trapped and euthanized.

Pagosa Pathfinders fund-raiser By Lesley Britton Special to The SUN

The Pagosa Pathfinders will hold a fund-raiser at the Ponderosa Farmers Market this Saturday, July 29, to benefit youth participants

attending the National YHEC Competition at the Whittington Center in Raton, N.M. The kids will be selling breakfast burritos and biscuits starting at 7 a.m. and hot dog lunches starting at 10:30 a.m.

A simple fence will not keep wildlife out of an area where small animals are kept. Animals should be taken into a building at night. If a pen is used, the top should also be covered. Chicken coops must be well secured â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a bear can easily tear off a wooden door. Dogs that bark can provide additional deterrents. Livestock owners should also keep pens and barns clean because most wildlife has a powerful sense of smell. Predators are opportunists and have good memories â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if they find sources of food at one residence or farm, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go looking for more at similar places.

driven planning and mapping exercise that identifies and ranks community values on the landscape. This GIS-based map of community values will be integrated with other data layers such as wildlife habitat and local government land use plans to create a basis for landscape-scale planning of energy development. Communities can then use this map to minimize potential energy development impacts to critical community resources such as municipal water supplies, high-value recreation, wildlife and agricultural production areas. Stakeholders in the community, such as county commissioners, landowners, businesses, tribes, economic development representatives and others are being asked to participate in a weighting and ranking exercise at a half-day workshop in Archuleta County on July 1. The results of the community mapping will be depicted visually into a GIS-based map that can be used to protect important community values and resources by informing landowner and county planning efforts, and providing a basis for energy development overlays and host community benefits agreements. A partnership of Archuleta County, Colo., Rio Arriba County, N.M., Chama Peak Land Alliance, Future West, and Groundtruth Geographics is creating the community-based mapping process. Some of these same partners worked successfully in Montana and Idaho on a similar project called the MSTI Review Project. To watch a five-minute motion story on the process, visit http:// www.mstireviewproject.org/. How is this related to oil and gas leasing and planning? Planning for energy development takes place at local, state and federal levels. This community values analysis and map can inform planning efforts at all three levels, enabling a more seamless and comprehensive approach to energy development across the landscape. Federal directives require consideration of local land use plans in federal energy development planning efforts because many of the impacts of energy development (e.g. road impacts, emergency services, housing) are incurred at the local

level and become the responsibility of local government to address. Participants will spend an hour on introductions and briefings on the project goals. Then, participants will be walked through the community mapping process. In the last hour of the meeting, participants will fill out worksheets to weigh and rank community values. These worksheet responses will be compiled and a final map will be prepared by Aug. 23. The workshop will take place 1â&#x20AC;&#x201C;4 p.m. July 1 at Stevens Field Airport, second floor conference room. Take Piedra Road 1.3 miles and turn right on Cloman Boulevard. The airport will be 1.2 miles on the right. R.S.V.P. by Friday, June 28, to monique@future-west.org.

What should your child read this summer? By Carole Howard SUN columnist, and the Library Staff

Has your child cracked a book since school let out? Several studies have documented a â&#x20AC;&#x153;summer slideâ&#x20AC;? in reading skills once kids go on summer vacation. The decline in reading and spelling skills are greatest among low-income students, who lose the equivalent of two months of school each summer, according to the National Summer Learning Association, an education advocacy group. And the loss compounds each year. New research offers a surprisingly simple and affordable solution to the summer reading slide. In a three-year study, researchers at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville found that simply giving lowincome children access to books â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and allowing them to choose books that interested them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; had a significant effect on the summer reading gap. Children who chose reading books and those who picked free activity and puzzle books were tracked for three years. Those who had access to free reading books posted significantly higher test scores than the children who received activity books. The effect â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 1/16th of a standard deviation in test scores â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was equivalent to a child attending three years of summer school. The difference in scores was twice as high among the poorest children in the study. One of the notable findings of the study was that children improved their reading scores even though they typically werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t selecting the curriculum books or classics that teachers normally assign for summer reading. That conclusion confirms other studies suggesting that children learn best when they are allowed to select their own books. Bottom line: What should your child read this summer? Any books will do!

Summer reading You still have a little time to sign up for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free Summer Reading Program. In fact, you can do so any time before July 11.

A18 — The Pagosa Springs SUN — Thursday, June 27, 2013

Health reminder: be aware of smoke Liane Jollon, interim executive director of the San Juan Basin Health Department, has issued a health reminder due to the smoke from numerous wildfires affecting the air quality in southwest Colorado. Elderly persons, young children, pregnant women and persons with pre-existing circulatory or respiratory conditions should limit outdoor activity when smoke is visible in the sky. The following are recommendations from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) on steps to take if wildfire smoke is affecting your health: • If you smell smoke and/or are beginning to experience symptoms, consider temporarily locating to another area as long as it is safe for you to do so. • Seek out locations where air is filtered. For example, heading to the local mall, movie theater or recreation center can provide some temporary relief. Local health officials often can help locate places with better air quality during extended smoke episodes. • Close windows and doors and stay indoors. However, do not close up your home tightly if it makes it dangerously warm inside. • Only if they are filtered, run the air conditioning, the fan feature on your home heating system (with the heat turned off) or your evaporative cooler. Keep the outdoor air intake closed and be sure the filter is clean. Filtered air typically has less smoke than the air outdoors. Running these appliances if they are not filtered can

make indoor smoke worse. • If you have any HEPA room air filtration units, use them. • In smoky air, reduce your physical activity level. Avoid exercise or other strenuous activities in heavy smoke. If smoke is simply unpleasant or mildly irritating, changing the timing of a few activities may be all that is necessary. • Give extra attention to the things that help keep a person healthy at any time. Make healthy eating choices, drink plenty of fluid, get ample sleep and exercise in clean air. To the extent that you can, avoid or mitigate stress by keeping in touch with friends and family, and using other methods of taking a break from worries. • Commercially available dust masks may seem like a good idea, but they do virtually nothing to filter out the particles and gasses in smoke.

At night

• At night, smoke may move in different directions than smoke does in the day, and can be heavy — especially if the outdoor air is still. It tends to be worse near dawn. • Close bedroom windows at night. • To prepare for nighttime smoke, consider airing out your home during the early or middle of the afternoon when smoke tends to be more diluted. Use your best judgment. If smoke is thick during the day, follow the tips above. For more information, see CDPHE’s web page on wildfire smoke: www.colorado.gov/airquality/wildfire.aspx.

Help firefighters by protecting your home By Bill Trimarco Special to The SUN

What can you do to help our firefighters? As the West Fork Complex Fire continues to grow and there still is no rain in sight, a lot of people are offering their help. If you really want to help the firefighters, what they need is for you to protect yourself and your property from wildfire. If the wind changes or another fire starts up, it may be too late for the crews to come in and start trying to protect your property. We have already seen the West Fork fire grow at an unprecedented rate. We really don’t know how much time we might have when a wildfire threatens. There are quite a few simple things we can do, however, to minimize the risk to our lives and property. One of the first priorities is to develop an evacuation plan for the members of your household. You may wish to develop a list of what you want to gather depending on how much warning you have. At the very least, it is advisable to have a “to go” bag ready. A few day’s to a week’s worth of medications, toiletries, eyeglasses, extra clothes, flashlight, phone and charger, etc. is a good place to start. It’s worthwhile to have any important documents (passport, insurance policies and the like) and computer backup, packed for easy transport. You may not have time to look for pet carriers or hook up horse trailers, so have these things ready. Keep a flashlight handy and know where people are in the house; you can’t be assured of electrical power in an emergency. If you have advanced warning of an evacuation, things will go a lot more smoothly if you have a priority list of items to load. You might want to get very specific such as lists for a 10-minute evacuation, a one hour list, a one day warning, etc. If you have time, close all windows and pull furniture away from them, before you leave. Get any flammables off the deck and away from the building. Once you are confident that you

are prepared to leave in a hurry, you can take the time to get your home ready to withstand a wildfire. It is good to remember that about 90 percent of the homes lost to wildfire are never touched by the roaring flames like you see photographed on the evening news. It’s the blizzard of little embers and firebrands that find something to burn on or near the house that are the main culprit. Here is a quick list of things to check: • Make sure all attic, eave and crawl space vents are screened (1/8 inch or smaller is preferred). • Keep the area under the deck and stairs free of flammables (pine needles, lumber, etc.). These areas can be screened to prevent debris buildup. • Store firewood at least 30 feet from the structure. If you keep it closer in the winter, make sure it is moved come spring. • Clean pine needles from roofs and gutters. • Use nonflammable ground cover in the first five feet around the home. Adequately watered succulent plants are usually fine, but keep evergreens and junipers away from the house, especially if your siding is flammable. Wood chips and decorative bark are flammable. • Don’t allow wooden fences to touch the structure. Most of these items could be taken care of with a minimum of time and effort and can go a long way towards protecting your home, yourself and your family. If you want to take things further, you can look at fire resistant building materials and creating defensible space zones around your home. The Colorado State Forest Service website has an excellent guide, Protecting Your Home From Wildfire, that can be downloaded from their website www.csfs.colostate. edu. You can also get information, advice and help from FireWise of Southwest Colorado at www. southwestcoloradofires.org or by contacting Bill Trimarco, Archuleta FireWise at archuletafirewise@ gmail.com.

FEMA authorizes assistance for West Fork Complex Fire Colorado U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet has welcomed the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) announcement that it had authorized the use of federal resources to help with firefighting costs for the West Fork Complex Fire. The funds come in the form of a Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG).  “These federal resources are a critical part of ensuring that our firefighters and first responders have the support they need to battle these fires,” Bennet said. The authorization makes FEMA funding available to pay 75 percent of the state’s eligible firefighting costs.

Sunday, June 23: Wolf Creek Pass remains closed to traffic. The Weminuche Wilderness remains closed.

The Pagosa Springs Community Band will perform a free concert on Thursday, July 4, on the back lawn at The Springs Resort. The concert takes place at 2 p.m.

Community Band to perform free Fourth of July concert By Heidi Tanner Special to The PREVIEW

The Pagosa Springs Community band invites you to enjoy a free concert on the Fourth of July, at 2 p.m. on the back lawn of the Springs Resort Hotel near the footbridge across from the county courthouse. Bring a blanket and enjoy a variety of patriotic songs in celebration of Independence Day. The 35-plus member band was formed with the goal to raise awareness of instrumental music, provide music education to student and adult players alike, and to celebrate the joy of playing and performing instrumental music for our community. The Community Band is led by Larry Baisdon who hails from Texas and was at the helm of a large high school music department during his professional career. Our band is fortunate to have him. The Pagosa Springs Community

Band will play a variety of patriotic anthems and marches including â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Star Spangled Banner,â&#x20AC;? John Philip Sousaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous â&#x20AC;&#x153;Semper Fidelisâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Stars and Stripes Forever,â&#x20AC;? which is the official march of the United States of America. John Philip Sousa was a premier American composer and conductor. At age 26, he became conductor of the United States Marine Corps Band and remained leader of the band for five presidential administrations. Over his career, his band toured tirelessly and in its first seven years gave 3,500 concerts in 400 different cities. This year, the Pagosa Springs Community Band will be adding a new Sousa march to our repertoire: the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Washington Post March.â&#x20AC;? The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Washington Post Marchâ&#x20AC;? was written by Sousa in 1989 at the request of the Washington Post newspaper for their essay contest awards ceremony. Sousa obliged and the march was performed for the first time June 15, 1989. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Washington

# $#%& &'  (!)  &&* +, %&* + -. 

Post Marchâ&#x20AC;? was an instant hit and led to Sousa being dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;The March King.â&#x20AC;? The Pagosa Springs Community Band is very appreciative of the Springs Resort Hotel, which is hosting this concert for the second year in a row. The Springs Resort will offer a two-for-one drink special during the concert. Please join us for a festive and patriotic band concert. Our members look forward to playing for you and celebrating the holiday with you.

The lead singers are siblings

Justin and Ryan Harris originally from West End, N.C., and the band is named for the road they grew up on.

unteer corps,â&#x20AC;? said CUPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board president, Bill Stine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Curtains Up, Pagosa! is a completely non-profit, volunteer organization and relies heavily on those people behind the scenes who are sewing and managing costumes, styling hair and applying makeup, designing and building sets, selling tickets and concessions, running the lights and sound, selling program ads, and helping with publicity. The amount of work that goes into productions such as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pippinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is mind-boggling, but is a sure representation of the wonderful spirit that inhabits Pagosa Springs.â&#x20AC;? Though the cast and orchestra is completely volunteer, that is not to say that there are not a number of professional-quality actors and musicians in the mix. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are so fortunate to have such highly qualified, talented people to work with,â&#x20AC;? said Morris. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The singing, dancing, and acting are over the top for a community based organization such as ours. Two of our leads, Robert Neel and Max Miller, are CUP scholarship winners who are currently majoring in musical theater in college. Our King Charlemagne, played by Keith Paulson, is a professionally trained singer, as is Darcy DeGuise, who plays Fastrada. The dancers are beautiful to watch as well. To top it

off, how many community theater groups can boast a live volunteer pit orchestra? I think our audiences will be truly amazed and pleased by the professional caliber of our performances.â&#x20AC;? Proceeds from this production provide scholarships for selected students majoring in the arts and providing needed, unbudgeted equipment for the arts departments in our public schools. Originally called Music Boosters, Curtains Up, Pagosa! has been a part of the Pagosa Springs arts community for the past 24 years, mentoring youth in the arts, helping to promote the arts in our schools, and providing high-quality entertainment to the public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to have large audiences every night,â&#x20AC;? said Stine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community support we receive, in terms of volunteer work, audience members and extra financial contributions, has an immediate and important impact on our mission. The number of young people and adults who have benefited from Curtains Up, Pagosa! over the past 24 years is more than any of us could ever imagine. Without the support from our local citizens, we could not possibly bring this kind of entertainment to fruition. I think everyone will be genuinely impressed by the talent, hard work and commitment our artists bring to the stage.â&#x20AC;?

Acting classes at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts By Laura Moore Special to The PREVIEW

Thingamajig Theatre Company has added adult scene study classes to their schedule, alongside the Whatchamawhozits Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Theatre Camp that runs in July. The adult classes are open to beginners and advanced performers alike, ages 16 and up, and are taught by Thingamajig summer stock actor Kurt Brighton (Sir Bevidier in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spamalot,â&#x20AC;? and Harry in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Full Montyâ&#x20AC;?). The classes will be held on six Saturdays from noon to 2 p.m. starting Saturday July 6. Actors can sign up for one class at a time at $25 each or by registering for all six classes for only $125. Class space is limited. Call 731-7469 to register or come by the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts. Registration is also open for

Thingamajig Theatre Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer camp. The Whatchamawhozitsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Summer Camp runs July 1-18, Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., with a performance of the Disney musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aristocatsâ&#x20AC;? on July 20. Camp is run by Laura Moore, who has years of experience running the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theatre program at the Backstage Theatre in Breckenridge, being the educational director for the Lake Dillon Theatre Summer Camp, as well as performing in and direction numerous professional productions, including the nationally-renowned Arvada Center Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Theatre program. Camp is taught by the professional singers, actors and dancers in Pagosa Springs for Thingamajigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer season. This is a wonderful summer activity for kids that

strengthens their confidence, expands their horizons, teaches them the crafts of theatre, exposes them to professionals in the field and is simply a rambunctious fabulous summertime activity. The summer camp is a bargain for early registration at only $300 for the full three weeks or $150 for the first week. The class is open to kids 7-12 years of age. Registration forms can be found on the Center for the Arts website, www.pagosacenter.org under the tab Whatchamawhozits. You can drop off registration forms at the Center for the Arts at 2313 Eagle Drive, or put them in the mail to the same address. Camp usually fills up quickly, so be sure to register early. If you are interested in sponsoring a child with a scholarship, call Laura Moore at 507-0408.

Choral workshop at St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Episcopal Church By Sally Neel Special to The PREVIEW

St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Episcopal Church will offer its fourth annual Festival Choral Workshop July 11â&#x20AC;&#x201C;14 with Peter Schindler returning as guest director. The music selected for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workshop is Mozartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Missa Brevis in D minor.â&#x20AC;? The music will be accompanied by Sally Neel, along with Heidi Tanner and Skip Thomas on violin, and will be performed at the Sunday Night Unplugged service on Sunday, July 14, at 5 p.m. St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Festival Choral Workshop is a concept that was designed and implemented in 2010 to give area singers the opportunity to spend significant time studying and developing vocal technique and sing and perform beautiful music with others who wish to expand their musical repertoire. The workshop has proven to be a huge benefit to those who attend and the camaraderie has been such that many have participated all three years. Guest workshop director Peter Schindler resides in Dallas, Texas, and has spent the past 40 years performing, teaching and studying the human voice. He has long had a fascination with the physical aspects of singing, how the human voice produces beautiful sounds, and has expanded his studies to include the connection between the human voice and the human spirit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The performerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s task is to understand the composerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intent, bring it into being and transmit it to the audience with honesty.

In short, to be the channel of the ideaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s truth,â&#x20AC;? said Schindler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Singers often struggle to control their sound and more importantly, to control their audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reaction. This effort to control causes breaks, uncertainty, and a lack of confidence in the flow of ideas. In coaching performers I have observed a virtually universal event. As the voice becomes free there is a flow of emotion. Usually either laughter or tears, accompanied by a feeling of exuberant release. The sense is that the communication has been given clearly and freely. For a singer this results in a beautiful expressive sound.â&#x20AC;? The workshop will begin Thursday, July 11, 6:30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;8:30 p.m., with a vocal master class. The class will allow up to six soloists to perform in front of the class with Schindler offering each singer individual instruction. Class members will be allowed to listen and benefit from the lessons. Soloists who wish to participate should contact Sally Neel at St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Episcopal Church, 731-5801, to sign up. The cost for this class is $10. On Friday, July 12, at 10 a.m., Schindler will offer an opening

lecture titled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Music: Mind, Breath and Spirit.â&#x20AC;? He will share his wisdom regarding the importance of the connection between the human voice and the human spirit and will lead participants in ways to accomplish this goal. Rehearsals for the performance will begin July 12, 1â&#x20AC;&#x201C;3:30 p.m. womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sectional rehearsal; 4-5:30 p.m. menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sectional rehearsal; 6:30â&#x20AC;&#x201C;8:30 p.m. group rehearsal. On Saturday, July 13, the choir will meet at 8:30 a.m. for coffee and social time and begin rehearsing at 9. There will be a lunch break from noon to 1:30 p.m. and rehearsal will continue until 5:30. On Sunday, July 14, the choir will gather at 2:30 p.m. for a rehearsal and will perform at 5 at the Sunday Night Unplugged service. The cost for the entire weekend is $50 (includes music, master class, lecture and choral workshop); $40 for Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday only (includes music, lecture, rehearsals, and performance); $10 for master class only. For more information, or to sign up for the workshop, contact Sally Neel at sneel1@sbcglobal.net or call 946-6458.

Find your grail, before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone By R. Eli Townsend Special to The PREVIEW

You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a pair of coconuts to have a great time at Thingamajig Theatre Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premiere presentation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spamalot,â&#x20AC;? running through Aug. 11 at Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts. What better description of this show can you have than the one from the program cover, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A New Musical Lovingly Ripped From The Motion Picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grailâ&#x20AC;?? If you are not a Monty Python enthusiast, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry. If you have any semblance of a sense of humor, this is a show that will make you laugh from beginning to end. The original productions on Broadway and in Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West End were major successes and this production, directed by Pat Payne and choreographed by Ryan Hazelbaker, is as good and fun as the version seen on Broadway. The whole cast takes to the crazy Python scenes with a fervor and dedication unmatched by other â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spamalotâ&#x20AC;? productions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; these actors really get it. Pat Payneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staging and Thingamajigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costumes (from the original West End production, leased by artistic director Tim Moore) as well as the music

from the original orchestration are first class. Somehow, the performers manage to resist giving in and laughing with the audience. How does one describe this kind of humor in print? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult because it depends so much on a combination of words, timing, facial expressions and that magical unknown that enables creator Eric Idle to make King Arthurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quest for the Holy Grail such an incredible romp that it kept the opening night audience in fits of uncontrollable laughter. In one example, King Arthur (Tim Moore) fights a duel with the Black Knight (Ron Tal) in which the latter is gradually dismembered, while all the time he is saying that these were only scratch wounds, even while his arms and legs lay around the stage â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work in print, but it is hilarious on stage. Likewise, the scene where they attempt to infiltrate a French castle using a giant wooden rabbit modeled on the Trojan Horse. The ploy works, except they have unfortunately forgotten to hide inside it. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;killerâ&#x20AC;? rabbit that defends the Grail is dynamite â&#x20AC;&#x201D; donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mess with this fellow! â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spamalotâ&#x20AC;? is truly a feast n See Find on next page

Todd Condon has worked to fulďŹ ll his passion of ďŹ ne woodworking by creating traditional heirloom quality furniture, and the Pagosanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work has won awards at the Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Exhibition in Farmington, N.M., and at the San Diego County Fair Design in Wood competition. CertiďŹ ed Arborist Chris Pierce has spent the last 15 years in Pagosa Springs working with native trees and vegetation.

Creative Pagosa: Todd Condon The Pagosa Arts & Culture Project is building a web-based directory of all the creative people and businesses in the community. By creating this website, it will make these MAKERS easier to find in online search engines and help share the wealth of innovative and talented individuals that call our small town home. This sort of database is called â&#x20AC;&#x153;cultural mappingâ&#x20AC;? and is being done by communities around the country in order to realize and recognize the value of their creative assets. The Pagosa Arts & Culture Project is establishing the groundwork for continued collaboration and cooperation and promotional

efforts of the combined community. The goal of the project is to establish a solid foundation of cultural and creative individuals and businesses, to create a viable plan for promoting these assets and to promote the Pagosa area as a worthy place of residence for creative people, a productive place for creative business ventures and a desirable destination for arts tourism. At present, the PACP is also planning an event for fall 2013. The event, the MAKERS Expo and Tour, is set for Oct. 12-13. To register and be listed in the database, go to http://pagosaacp. org/Register.html. In order to highlight the MAK-

breadth of the creative community. This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MAKER is Todd Condon. Q: Tell us a little about who you are, where you were born, educated, your family, growing up and how you came to be doing your creative work? TC: My name is Todd Condon. I was born and raised in San Diego, Calif. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m married, and have three children â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Becky, her husband Keith, two granddaughters Lorah and Macey, a grandson Tucker of Pagosa Springs, a son Michael, his wife Alex, a granddaughter Grace, and a daughter Diane of San Diego. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the 12th of 15 children born to my parents Barbara and Joseph Condon, of course, many of my siblings were adults and out of the house by the time I was born, and so I mostly saw them at family gatherings such as birthdays and holidays. With that large of a family to raise finances were always pretty tight, so we went on a lot of picnics in San Diego. I have probably been to every park and beach in San Diego. I attended Catholic school up until eighth grade, and eventually graduated from Kearny High School. I got involved in woodworking when I started going to public school in the ninth grade. The shop teacher, Mr. Sylvester, picked up me and two other students for a summer project, and we built new tables for the school library. I continued taking woodworking classes throughout high school. Mr. Mosley, my mentor in high school shop, was a great teacher, and he also had me help him with projects on his own home. Later, as an adult, I found out that he had me help him to keep me out of trouble, and I thought he was just putting me to work. I got married at the young age of 21, and had three kids by the time I was 24. The furniture trade was tough to make a living at so with the help of one of my brothers I got into the construction trade which I continued in for 25 years. I moved my family to Pagosa Springs in 1995, but decided to move back to San Diego in the winter of 2001 when work became somewhat slow. After raising three great kids with my wonderful wife of 30 years Janice, I decided to go back to school to fulfill my passion of woodworking. I attended one year in the woodworking program at Palomar College in San Diego. I became very interested in

making American period furniture, so I then transferred to The Furniture Institute of Massachusetts where I had the opportunity to study under master furniture maker Phil Lowe. With Philâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vast expertise in making American period furniture, and also seeing the collections in museums on the east coast, my passion for making that style of furniture grew. We have always wanted to return to Pagosa Springs, especially because we wanted to be near our family here. So, after finishing at the institute, we moved back in September of 2012 where I continue my personal study in my workshop. In April I received an honorable mention for a 17th century Pilgrim chest. I entered the Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Exhibition in Farmington, N.M., and this month received first place for the same chest, third place for an 18th century chest of drawers, and an honorable mention for an 18th century Queen Anne side chair in the traditional category at the San Diego County Fair Design in Wood competition, which is the largest woodworking competition in the country. Every year at the fair, the Society of American Period Furniture Makers gives out an award, which I was honored to also receive. Q: Describe the objects you make or the creative work you do. TC: I make heirloom quality traditional furniture from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries including chests of drawers, chairs, tables, Pilgrim chests, small boxes, etc. I use both machine and hand tools. The majority of the work on my pieces is done at my self-made work bench with hand tools. Q: What is your favorite tool or material used in making your work? Why?

My favorite wood is by far walnut. Its color and grain patterns are exquisite. Q: Do you have a regular routine or schedule? TC: Although my kids are n See Creative on next page

Q: What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you? TC: The best advice I’ve ever gotten was, “No matter how old you are, or what ups and downs life brings, you should still pursue your passion.” Q: When you’re not making art, what is your favorite thing to do in

Pagosa Country? TC: When I’m not in my shop I enjoy horse packing here in the high country, and spending time with our children and grandchildren. Q: What are your goals for the coming year?

Mountain View Homemakers will use the proceeds from the day of fun and bargains, and the money they made at last Novemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Holiday Bazaar, to provide funds to the 12 local non-profits chosen by the members of the club. Mountain View Homemaker members have been gathering, creating and enhancing auction items for months. There will be treasures on which to bid that will go from a couple of dollars to several hundred. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since all the proceeds will be given to some of our local charities who need it most, we hope folks will come prepared to bid generously,â&#x20AC;? stated Homemakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; co-president Joyce Ryan. There will be handmade items including pillows, quilts, gift baskets, dolls and fine art. There will be jewelry treasures as well and food items including two of Dot Kirkhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coconut cakes, made from a recipe handed down for more than a hundred years. Several well-known artists, including local fabric artist Jeanine Malaney, Abilene Texas artist Missy Lewis, wildlife artist Glessie Drake and others have come forth with fine art donations. Local watercolorist and teacher Denny Rose has promised several gift certificates for classes. However, no one will know until the day of the auction all the items that will be up for bid in any one

The cost of liberty By Barb Kugle Special to The PREVIEW

Those who had the courage to put their signature to a single sheet of parchment understood the import of what it might cost them personally. Signing America’s declaration of independence from British rule was considered an act of treason. Only a few brave men had the courage to align themselves with the campaign to break from the mother country. John Hancock was one of those men, if not the most instrumental. Hancock was orphaned young and adopted by a wealthy, merchant uncle who sent him to Harvard. There, Hancock was educated in business and graduated at age 17. His uncle sent him to England on business where young John providentially witnessed the coronation of George III. Few men desired America’s independence more than John Hancock. He was involved in revolutionary politics early on, and became instrumental in “coaxing” the revolution into existence. As a delegate from Massachusetts to the Continental Congress, he aligned himself with those who were most sympathetic to the cause. In May 1775, he was elected President of the Continental Congress and immediately began a moral campaign for America’s independence. Although Hancock coveted the position of Commander-in-chief of the Continental forces, he accepted the practicality of appointing someone with military experience. Thus, on June 17, 1775, Hancock signed the resolution, which the Continental Congress passed, appointing George Washington as America’s first Commander-in-

A Arts Matter ofLine Faith Chief. In January of 1776, Thomas Paine published “Common Sense,” attacking King George III’s rule, arguing that the colonies had a moral obligation to reject monarchy. His publications ignited debate for independence and word spread quickly throughout the colonies. “Common Sense” was liberally salted with pleas to Almighty God, along with Scripture quotes making a theological case for independence. Taking advantage of this climate of partisanship, Hancock’s congress evoked the aid of God, and passed a resolution on March 17, 1776, proclaiming, “A Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer,” throughout the colonies, urging its fellow citizens to, “confess and bewail our manifold sins and transgressions, and by a sincere repentance and amendment of life, appease (God’s) righteous displeasure, and through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, obtain his pardon and forgiveness.” A new motto was added to the proclamation, “God Save This People,” in place of “God Save the King.”John Hancock signed it and copies were sent out to churches and other meeting places. On June 11, 1776, a Committee of Five was chosen to draft a Declaration with Thomas Jefferson taking the lead. The committee included John Adams, Benjamin n See Faith on next page

UU Fellowship to consider the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Second Sourceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By John Graves Special to The PREVIEW

On Sunday, June 30, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will consider the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Second Source,â&#x20AC;? in a DVD sermon by Rev. Angela Herrera, associate minister at the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Albuquerque, N.M. Herrera explains that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unitarian Universalism draws from many religious and spiritual sources. This particular source draws from words and deeds of prophetic women and men that challenge us to confront powers and structures

of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love.â&#x20AC;? Reverend Herrera will also discuss some biblical prophets and contemporary religious leaders whose main experience seems to have been one of public rejection. To highlight prophecy, she will discuss the apocalyptic prophecies found in the Book of Revelation from the perspective of Harvard theologian Elizabeth Schussler-Fiorenza. She points out that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Religious liberals have their own version of the apocalypse, which represents

a vision in which the people tear down structures and systems of injustice and oppression, and in their place build up a beloved community. Our contemporary prophets, Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., led us to realize huge gains toward that vision.â&#x20AC;? The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall. The address is Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome.

Franklin, Robert R. Livingston and Roger Sherman. After Franklin and Adams made changes to Jeffersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original draft, the Declaration was submitted to the entire committee for review. Afterwards 26 additional changes were made. Finally, on Friday, June 28, the Committee presented it to Congress where it was put aside. When Congress reconvened the morning of July 1, the resolution for independence was thoroughly debated with some delegates unable to commit, holding out hope that the colonies might resolve their differences with the motherland. On July 2, those who could not, in good conscious, vote for the resolution, chose to abstain by not attending the session, and still another rode all night to vote in place of and against his ill fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wishes. Thus all twelve colonies adopted the resolution introduced by Henry Lee and John Adams. The Association known as United Colonies of America officially became the United States of America. John Adams thought July 2 would be the day future generations of Americans would celebrate Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s independence and wrote to his wife Abigail:

Â&#x2021;3UHUHJLVWUDWLRQUHTXLUHG

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Second Day of July 1776 will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America ... It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires, and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.â&#x20AC;? After the resolution was passed the Continental Congress turned the debate over to the language of the Declaration drafted by Thomas Paineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committee. Those debates took place on July 3 and 4. Finally, late that afternoon of July 4, 12 of the 13 states, with New York as the lone holdout, formally agreed to proclaim themselves free and independent. Church bells rang throughout the city of Philadelphia in celebration. The resolution of July 2 became the birth certificate of the new nation while the Declaration of Independence on July 4 was the birth announcement. (The New York Provincial congress adopted the resolution for independence on July 9, making the vote unanimous). John Hancock and Charles Thomson, Secretary of the Congress, were the only two signatures appearing on the Declaration sent to King George III of Great Britain, dated July 5. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until Aug. 2, 1776, that the remaining 56 brave del-

Surviving her death were the following children: Virgil Amyx, Bufford Amyx, Mrs. Maggie Mattox, Dean, Claude, Ruby and Mrs. Charles Port; sisters Mrs. R.J. Chambers, Mrs. F.E. Butler, Mrs. Maggie Ward, and half-sisters Mrs. J.L. Chambers and Mrs. Libbie Burgess. The Provancher Ranch was located on the Blanco River a few miles upstream from where U.S. 84 crosses that stream south of Pagosa Springs. The family ranch is now owned by the U.S. Forest Service and has also been known as the Murray Ranch. For many years, the Forest Service maintained the ranch as a kind of museum representing that period of time in local history. Visitors were invited to tour the ranch. In recent years, the ranch has remained closed and the road to the ranch is closed at the campground on the Blanco River

Pagosa’s Past John M. Motter which occupies the former CCC campsite of the 1930s. Albert A. Putnam was born in 1839 in Purvan, N.Y. He was an early Pagosa Springs settler and his home on the old Pagosa/Durango stagecoach road remains and is occupied. Until the 1930s, that road was used when leaving Pagosa Springs in a westerly direction. Today’s Put Hill is named for Albert Putnam, but the present road carrying that name is approximately one block north of the old road, which runs east/ west just south of the elementary school. Putnam also manufactured bricks at his homesite. Putnam bricks were likely used in the Phillips building, still standing downtown in Block 21 on Pagosa Street. He died in February of 1913. Harry Ernest Putnam was born in Bourbon County, Kans., June 8, 1886. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Putnam. He married Alice May Bishard at Fort Scott, Kans., in January of 1905. The couple came to Pagosa Springs in 1906. Mrs. Putnam died in 1959, Harry in 1974. Their daughters were Mrs. U.H. Chambers, Mrs. Ray Murray,and Mrs. A. J. Crowley.

Thursday, June 27, 2013 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Pagosa Springs SUN â&#x20AC;&#x201C; PREVIEW â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Section 1 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Page 25

Fast cars, fast women ... and outdated My Sweet Al and I made a quick trip to Albuquerque. The closer we got, the faster the cars were going down the highway. We made the comment, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be glad to get back home to Pagosa.â&#x20AC;? Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like Dorothy said after the tornado: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Toto, I have a feeling weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in Kansas anymore.â&#x20AC;? I went to the Apple Store in Albuquerque, asked about getting more reception, other than Wi-Fi. I was told I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the band on my iPad. The salesperson said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your little baby will only work at Wi-Fi places like coffee shops. If you want to get reception in the car and other places you must buy the iPad 4 with the band.â&#x20AC;? I said to her, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My iPad 4 is brand new, I got it for Christmas, and now youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outdated?â&#x20AC;? She came back with a simple answer to my dilemma: You can trade it in for a new one. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only $195 more, and we will give you $200 for your old one. I told her, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My son paid over six hundred dollars for this one six months ago. That means you want me to pay you five hundred ninety-five for a new version. No, I guess Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just have to live with this one.â&#x20AC;? I held my iPad with great pride, since it was a gift from our son. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a scratch on it and I was actually learning how to use it. Anyway, I felt good about it until I visited the Apple Store.

Artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lane Betty Slade I walked away deflated. How could something be outdated in six months? Welcome to the world of technology. I had a feeling I was not in Kansas any more. We arrived at Alâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house Sunday evening. David had just come back from vacationing in Mexico. Al wanted to watch NASCAR on the fast track. David wanted to tell me all about the fast women in Mexico. He poured himself a glass of wine and began. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I needed a vacation. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working hard. I flew into Tucson, rented a car and drove four and half hours into Mexico. I checked into this new resort hotel. The next morning, about ten thirty, I went to the pool and ordered a Marguerita. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I sat down at a table next to the pool. One of the young women came to the table and asked, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How are you doing?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Now that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing fine.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;She smiled and lifted her top and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Now, how are you doing?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Better.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys hanging around the pool came up to me and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;She wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lift her top for us.

are you telling her?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing.â&#x20AC;? My Sweet Al is watching fast cars going around and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m listening to David brag about fast women in Mexico. I said to him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given you will be 78 years old this June, you should be settling down. I know you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want an old woman, but pick a fifty-year-old.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why? Is it just looks thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different between a thirty and fifty year old?â&#x20AC;? I was thinking of my new out-of-date iPad. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the same thing, but different in age with one new feature. He said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. Fiftyyear-olds bore me.â&#x20AC;? I said to him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe the young ones are fun, but they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lived life. The older ones have been around, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been hurt and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a lot more. The older ones are probably distrusting and calloused because of how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been treated.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Probably thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it. I know that the women are rabid today.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rabid? God help us all.â&#x20AC;? I remembered a scripture in Job. (Job 33:22,23) It says a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soul draws near to the pit, but there is a messenger for him. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mediator, to show man His uprightness. God will deliver him from going down to the pit. n See Lane on next page

TAXI &

The fat boy fails the tub test I’m fat. I know it. I don’t need anyone to tell me, though Kathy manages to slam me with at least one lessthan-veiled comment per day. “Hey, Chunky. Did I see more cheese in the refrigerator and some ice cream in the freezer? Still buyin’ the dairy products, are ya? What do you think this is … Finland? You need a lot of butterfat when you’re out herding reindeer, don’t you?” “Watch your step Doughboy, you’re not as light on your feet as you used to be. By the way, have you been able to see your feet lately?” And so on. Up until the other day, I could take it, dish out a few barbs of my own, and continue on my merry way. I measured the remarks against the beauty of bernaise, against the value of roasted new potatoes slathered in a buttery pan sauce, and the food won. Hands down. But, there are times when something occurs to a fat guy that takes the game to a whole new level — way beyond snide remarks and mildly-disturbing images glimpsed in a full-length mirror. To a moment of stark, existential realization. I had one of those experiences last week. I flunked the tub test. In a big way. It began when I felt poorly while at work. My body started to ache; I grew suddenly and seriously fatigued. I began to heat up, my temp rising like the fuel rods in the reactor core at Chernobyl. It was the tail end of flu season. I had been to local school buildings, touching things — door handles, desk tops. I’d been indiscriminately shaking hands with folks at the office and at the market. I was a prime candidate for a ticket on the Influenza Express. I admit I am somewhat of a hypochondriac so, at the very least it was influenza. Most likely, I had SARS. I was going to die.

Food for Thought Karl Isberg

‘Sounds like you’re in a world of hurt Chub Ball. The Big V definitely has a grip on you. I warned you about weakening your immune system with your careless habits. You’ve been a very bad boy, haven’t you?’

I dragged myself to the grocery store and bought the makings for a simple and quick chicken soup: chicken broth, some frozen mixed vegetables, a rotisserie chicken — ingredients that could be plopped in a pan, heated and eaten with a modest portion of shame. The gunk for the soup had enough chemicals in it to send the national security warnings off the chart, but I figured the additives might kill a virus. I served up a bowl to Kathy. She stared at the bowl, then at me, then at the bowl, then at me. “What’s this?” “Soup.”

But, does man want to be delivered from going to the pit? I don’t think so. He’s busily skipping down the yellow brick road looking for the Emerald City. Final brushstroke: My question is this: Will they hear? Will they turn around? Are they having too much fun?

I explained my symptoms, their rapid onset. Influenza. Sinus infection. Something dire. This piqued my bride’s interest.

“Really.” She stared at the bowl, then at me, then at the bowl, then at me. I held my face about two inches above the surface of the hot ... what shall we call it? … “stuff” in the bowl. I inhaled the steam coming off the surface of the “stuff” and moaned as I exhaled. “Not feeling well, are you Porky?”

symptoms? Kathy knows symptoms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sounds like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a world of hurt Chub Ball. The Big V definitely has a grip on you. I warned you about weakening your immune system with your careless habits. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a very bad boy, havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you? Too much red meat, too much butter, too much cheese, too much wine, too much gin. Especially the gin. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to stop eating refined products, and â&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? As she recited her litany, I put my head on the table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I gotta go to choir practice at church,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d pat you on your giant head if you werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t infected. I do feel sorry for you, really I do, but only up to a point. After all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your own fault. What I want you to do is drink the potion Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to whip up for you before I leave. As soon as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve finished with the magic potion, I want you to take the pills I give you then fill the tub with hot water, and soak. Then, wrap yourself up, and sleep in the guest bedroom. Whatever you do, stay away from my bed. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even sit on the end of the bed; you have cooties and I do not want them.â&#x20AC;? A regular Mother Theresa. Kathy made a huge mug of her special potion. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written before about her odd alchemical experiments â&#x20AC;&#x201D; teas brewed using roots and barks and berries from the Third World, allegedly imbued with major mojo. She gathered a fistful of capsules and tablets and set them on the table. She put the mug in front of me, backed away quickly and waved goodbye. As soon as she left, I poured the tea down the drain and deposited the caps and tabs in the trash, carefully concealing them beneath a pile of shredded credit card offers. The bath Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do, I thought. That sounds like it could provide some relief. I staggered to the bathroom and filled the tub with hot water. I lowered myself into the tub. I had to take it slow, since the water level rose quickly, threatening to overflow on to the floor. Finally, I was in.

The first thing I noticed was the absence of water. Where was the water? Shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be lapping over me, covering me in a blanket of therapeutic warmth? I looked to the end of the tub. The second thing I noticed was the fact I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the end of the tub. Why? My stomach blocked my view. Maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll sit up and turn on the water, I thought. The third thing I noticed was the fact I was kind of stuck in the tub. Well, in truth, not â&#x20AC;&#x153;kind of.â&#x20AC;? I was stuck in the tub; I occupied every square centimeter of the thing. It was like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d poured myself into the tub â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a hirsute mass of chalky Silly Putty, with a spine. To compound the problem, the rapid evacuation of the water (oh, that cursed displacement) had created a strong suction, bonding my ample backside to the porcelain. When I lowered myself into the tub, the water was a good 8-inches deep. When the Eagle landed, the water level was down to a couple microns. So, I am fevered, fatigued and form-fitted to a bathtub with only the enormous, desolate continent of my midsection in view. It was pretty obvious: I probably ought to lose some weight. It took me quite a while to get out of the tub, and the process wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pretty. I flopped and slithered my way to freedom, like an albino manatee escaping from a tank at Sea World. Apparently the diet I detailed in this column about a year ago has not served me well. I was wrong: I theorized I could lose a bit of weight and maintain the loss by eating anything I wanted, in moderation. The idea was so cleanly Aristotelian â&#x20AC;&#x201D; how could it fail? But fail it did, especially when the things eaten in moderation rank near 8.0 on the flab Richter Scale. That and the fact that â&#x20AC;&#x153;moderationâ&#x20AC;? is a sketchy concept. Wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it Maurice MerleauPonty who rigged up an epistemological system based on the

intentionality of perception? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to understand: A â&#x20AC;&#x153;moderateâ&#x20AC;? dinner in my estimation would be a monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supply of food for a village in South Sudan. In light of my gross miscalculation: Where to go, what to do? I know folks who have lost weight on the low-carb, no-carb regimens. But, I also know many of them fall off the protein wagon and bounce right back to Fatville. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the South Beach Diet, the Atkins, the modified Atkins. There are programs that involve regular fasting; there are radical vegetarian plans. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the grapefruit diet, the eggplant diet, the green things diet, the macrobiotic diet. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s depressing. But, so is flunking the tub test. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the notion proposed by my wife that weight loss might occur if butter and cream and most red meat and most dairy products are excluded most of the time from the menu. Hand in hand with alcohol. But who wants to live without these things? If the economy collapses, if Guatemala invades and takes over the country, if a meteor hits the planet and plunges us into perpetual winter, I might have to give these things up, but why now? What to do, what to do? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m stuck. Stuck. Hmmm. I have an idea that might solve the problem, at least for a while. Tomorrow, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll buy a larger bath tub.
