DeVoti resigns from school district post

No charges filed in attempted murder case By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

The 6th Judicial District Attorney’s Office has decided not to file charges against a New Mexico man for the alleged attempted murder of a woman in July. According to Deputy District Attorney Alex Lowe, no charges have been filed and there are no plans to file charges against Anthony Germo Chavez, 54, of Kirtland, N.M. “Based upon the case as presented, there’s no reasonable likelihood of conviction,” Lowe said, declining to give further details. Chavez was released from the Archuleta County Detention Center last week, Lowe said. The case was dismissed without prejudice, Lowe said, meaning that,

if additional evidence surfaces, the DA’s office could again review the case for charges. For Chavez, the incident will show up on his record as an arrest with the case dismissed, Lowe explained. The incident that resulted in the initial arrest of Chavez occurred on July 6. According to the incident report, the victim stated that she and Chavez had come to Chavez’ family farm together. While the pair were sitting near the river visiting and drinking vodka, the report states that Chavez began pouring gasoline on the woman from the waist down, then began lighting matches and thrown See Charges A8

Town considers eminent domain in pipeline conflict By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

After last month’s meeting of the Pagosa Springs Sanitation and General Improvement District, where board member David Schanzenbaker confronted Mayor Ross Aragon and admonished his fellow board members for vilifying someone who was not present to defend himself, Steve Graham finally had the opportunity this week to speak on his own behalf. However, his attempt to defend himself may have come too late, and apparently fell on deaf ears, because, in the end, the board elected to stop negotiating with Graham and instructed staff to begin preparing for a court battle. The board plans to ask a judge to condemn Graham’s property and establish eminent domain for the pipeline that will transfer sewage n See Conflict A8

This is the place. If you were headed to the Archuleta County Fair Saturday, there was no mistaking the site: the rainbow showed the way. Fairgoers made the trip to the fairgrounds for four days of fun, food, entertainment and education. The annual county fair is one of the most anticipated events of the season and a bit of rain invariably falls.

PAWSD moves forward with rate change process By Melissa Stedman Staff Writer

The Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District (PAWSD) needs more revenue, and board members have unanimously decided to have Fernando Aranda, consultant for MWI Business Solutions, move forward in developing one of the options that is part of the 2012-13 rate study. The options included in Aranda’s original presentation to the PAWSD board and considered by the directors included: 1. An across-the-board increase that would result in 50 percent of bills seeing an increase of $1.13 or less in each tier.

50¢

2. A service charge of $20 to ratepayers in all existing tiers. 3. A service charge of $20 to customers in tier one. 4. A service charge of $23.50, with an allowance of 2,000 gallons of water included in one tier. 5. A service charge of $23.50 with 2,000 gallons of water included in the base rate, using existing tiers. At this time, the base rate indistrict service charge is $14.50 for all tiers. The additional first-tier charge is $4.50 per thousand gallons from 1-8,000 gallons of water of residential use. Once a household goes over the 8,000-gallon limit, it moves to the second tier, with rates of $9 per 1,000 gallons of water for n See PAWSD A8

At a special meeting held last night in the maintenance and transportation building near Pagosa Springs High School, the Archuleta School District Board of Education had one unexpected addition to its routine discussion of personnel matters — the resignation of superintendent Mark DeVoti. DeVoti provided SUN staff with a copy of his resignation letter before the meeting. “Please accept my resignation as superintendent of Archuleta School District 50 JT, effective September 30, 2013,” DeVoti ‘s letter began. “After 16 years as a Pagosa Springs Educator, the last 12 with the school district, I have accepted a leadership position with the Colorado Association of School Boards, beginning October 1. CASB offered a position that sought me out, for which I did not apply, as I had no intention of leaving our district at this time.” A press release issued earlier yesterday from CASB stated, “Mark DeVoti, superintendent of Archuleta School District 50 Joint in Pagosa Springs, has been named Associate Executive Director of the Colorado Association of School Boards (CASB). His primary responsibilities will include overseeing CASB’s Superintendent Search service and school board training and development.” DeVoti’s letter continued, “I am proud of the work we have done over the past six plus years together to benefit our students, staff, and community, and you are well positioned to go farther. “Our work together has helped the district weather a significant loss of funding from the state, adjusted to a declining student enrollment from a lack of jobs for parents in our local economy, and has seen the beginning of a turnaround on the condition of some of our aging facilities.” In an earlier phone interview, DeVoti assured SUN staff that he loved the Pagosa Springs community and his decision to resign had nothing to do with local politics or the pressures of his current job. While he is excited to move to Denver, and hopes to be able to find an apartment close to the capitol building, he will miss this place, and regrets having to move so far n See DeVoti A8 SUN photo/ Terri House

Opinion EDITORIAL

WHADDYA THINK?

The bus needs new drivers

With fire bans lifted, will you change outdoor recreation plans?

It’s time to take the hands off the wheel, move to a seat in the bus and let someone younger steer it. Everything comes to an end. Those of a “certain age” who had the desire and energy had his or her crack at driving the bus — in an occupation, in politics. There comes a time to move aside and give others a chance. It is a wise person who knows when the time is right. This is a serious matter for a growing number of Americans, and the suggestion herein will anger many. The idea is worthy of consideration, despite the blow to the ego. A major element in our economic and social future is a growing number of Americans entering the final phases of the ride. Boomers have moved through American life like a puppy through a python and are emerging to find fewer places to utilize skills, fewer venues in which their participation is sought and valued, fewer chances for employment. Their skills, in fact, are often outdated, their place in the march forward moving farther back in the pack. The intuitive reaction is to double down, to amp up participation, to seek employment and, too often, political office. As the most pampered, entitled generation in human history leaves the workplace, a significant number of Boomers cannot accept the fact they are not driving the bus, that they are not in charge and admired by all. They cannot give up the illusion of importance, of power. Most Boomers have labored for years, made their contributions, benefited from remuneration for the same. To suddenly stop, to attempt to find ways to fill leisure time that, perhaps, once seemed desirable but now weighs heavy and boring, is more than some can handle. And “some” is growing, the numbers of retires increasing daily. Soon, the entire puppy will exit the python and many Boomers will be unable to find comfort in their new lives. Counter to the intuitive response, one thing they shouldn’t do is compete for jobs in a difficult market — a market in which wage earners with families struggle to survive — or, perhaps worse, run for public office and, in particular, public office that pays. Here is our opinion: Don’t. It is time for retired folks to stay retired. It is time for employers and voters to send a message: Yes, you have skills; yes, you have done good work. Yes, you have experience but, no, you don’t get the job. Volunteer — there are plenty of options for this kind of work. Offer counsel when asked. Keep abreast of happenings and vote. But, get out of the way when it comes to jobs and politics. It’s a tough pill to swallow. But, for many of us, it is time to get out of the way and let the folks who will shoulder the burden take the jobs and elected offices. In Pagosa Country, we’ll enter a round of elections next year and the older generation needs to exhibit some wisdom and bow out of contention. More important, though, it is time for the next generation to fill the voids. If you are 30-50 years old, it is your bus. You, your children and grandchildren will live with what is put in place during the next 20 years, and you must be responsible for it. The younger residents of Pagosa Country must begin to step up and, rather than impeding them, rather than competing with them, the Boomers should assist them. If we care about the future of the community, we need to shed our egos and move back in the bus. Karl Isberg

Taken from SUN files of August 10, 1923 Homer McKinley has found trace of his lost cub bear, it having been caught and kept in seclusion by parties near town. It will no doubt soon be returned to its proper owner, by legal procedure if necessary. Louis R. Montroy is now considering the matter of completing the rooms in the second story of his new brick building for hotel purposes. He will also drill a hot water well for bath houses and heating purposes. S.H. Dickerson shipped a bear, which dressed 183 pounds, to a Denver market this morning. The brute had been getting away with the hogs of M.O. Archuleta from his ranch on Blue mountain on the Blanco divide and was caught in the act Wednesday.

Taken from SUN files of August 12, 1938 Julian Samora, a member of the Pagosa Springs High School graduating class of 1938, has been awarded one of the Bonfil scholarships according to announcement by the Denver Post. These scholarships are awarded for one year but are renewable for each year until a four-year college course is completed. They provide for all costs of a college education save living and traveling expenses. This scholarship is a very great honor to Julian and one of which he may well be proud. It is also an honor to the schools of Pagosa Springs, in which Julian has spent all twelve years of his school life. The honor seems greater when we know that there were 582 applicants for scholarships and only 29 who received scholarships.

Taken from SUN files of August 8, 1963 The Fire Department has been kept fairly busy the past couple of weeks with small fires. They also responded to a call when a pile of boards caught on fire at San Juan Lumber Co. The men went to the mill, but were unable to take the fire truck out of the city limits because of state law. The firemen have had a pretty busy year to date, answering numerous fire calls, emergency calls with resuscitator, first aid calls and have also had their regular training sessions. Construction work on the rebuilding of U.S. 84 is going ahead rapidly and one can see how the new stretch will eliminate some very bad curves along that road. Completion of the contract is scheduled for November, weather permitting.

Taken from SUN files of August 4, 1988 According to the organizers of the first annual Pagosa Springs Aviation Fair, and to all the spectators who attended the Fair last Saturday at Stevens Field, the event was a resounding success. This year’s Aviation Fair was built around the dedication of the new 6,500-foot runway at the field. In a speech prior to the ribbon cutting ceremony, Archuleta County Commissioner Chris Chavez acknowledged the “civic heroes” who made Stevens Field a reality. Chavez said those gathered at the dedication ceremony should express their “profound appreciation to these men and women ... and pray that those of us who follow in their footsteps will have their wisdom and commitment to the public good and to the future.”

Letters A mess Dear Editor: This note is regarding Cat Creek Rd. (CR 700). The county road and bridge department needs to do more work on the hill approaching the new bridge. They put some kind of crushed sandstone base on top of bedrock. This material will not tolerate much traffic; it will only decompose more, becoming terrible in the mud. There are no fines to lock the material together. Some of this road, such as about MM 10 by the big green tank, has never had material placed on it since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lived here (nine years). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mess in the mud. Lisa Cowell

Nuclear Dear Editor: I realize my letters on nuclear matters are boring and, even worse, I am beginning to sound like a shill for the power companies. I share Mr. Bruvoldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns for the safety of nuclear generated electricity. I also have a concern regarding the cost of solar power. I am no stranger to the Anti-nukes, they paraded outside Sandia Base for all the years I was there. I never did see a WW II vet among them. Spain is a country that has opted for solar energy and is now in virtual bankruptcy with an unemployment rate of about twenty five percent, the same as the USA in the great depression. France opted for nuclear energy. France obtains roughly eighty percent of its electricity from nuclear power. Japan is restarting its nuclear reactors, as the cost of importing fossil fuels is leading to bankruptcy. A Japanese energy official states, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do not think we can survive without nuclear.â&#x20AC;? China has seventeen nuclear plants in operation and 28 more under construction. China will soon be the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leader in reactor design. And then there is Russia, with nuclear energy supplying about 20 percent of Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electric power. Further, Russia has floating nuclear power plants under consideration, perhaps construction. Nuclear power is here, with more coming, although not in the USA. The USA is generously blessed (cursed?) with Climate Change Deniers, Anti-nukes and Greenies, all who want to dictate national energy policy. The Climate Change Deniers and Anti-nukes want to do nothing, the Greenies want to shut down the grid entirely. Quoting a Greenie regarding the coal-fired New England Brayton Point power station: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What do we do after we shut it down tomorrow? Someone else will have to figure that out ... we have to shut it down.â&#x20AC;? I doubt if Americans can develop a rational energy policy. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect much from a country that is number 27 in math and science and number one in piffle. Bob Dungan Arboles

Neither is success. It is time to push through the negativity, bring people together to define the desired future and make our community better, stronger and more prosperous. Economic development will either be done by us, or done to us. Decisions have consequences, but so do non-decisions. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proactively define our own unique path to prosperity. As you suggested, I looked to past community efforts. Lots of the community was involved a few years ago in creating a vision. But those who resisted change ultimately succeeded in suppressing forward momentum, so the work was shelved and has been gathering dust since. Worse yet, those who contributed so much left frustrated, disappointed and hurt. So what were some of the conclusions? â&#x20AC;˘ Archuleta County treasures and preserves its past, its heritage and the uniqueness. â&#x20AC;˘ The community is noted for its connection and appreciation for the natural, healing, creative, healthful, social and spiritual. â&#x20AC;˘ We appreciate open space, big views, wildlife, outdoor recreation and the pristine natural environment. â&#x20AC;˘ We are proud of the work/life/ play balance that our community offers. â&#x20AC;˘ We strive for a cohesive community that, while we may have differences, can come together for the good of the whole community. â&#x20AC;˘ We seek cooperation between

our local governmental, educational and business entities to move our community forward. Economic development begins with strong town/county leadership. â&#x20AC;˘ We seek to honor the past while moving forward to the future. We seek to balance our traditional ideals with modern values. Together, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s build on the past to create our own unique, prosperous future. Muriel Eason

Young Dear Editor: In June, I had the opportunity and pleasure of touring businesses that are members of the Pagosa Springs Chamber of Commerce. I was thrilled with the young owners. I am so proud of these young people, their entrepreneurial spirit and enthusiasm for our beloved Pagosa. Marilyn McCann

Coup Dear Editor: There are times when I have to wonder why so many people do not connect Obama to anything happening in the country. Until very recently, he escaped attachment to the economy, or any of his policies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even Obama care, which is named after him. Though the American people express total disagreement with the agenda, and utter disapproval of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s direction, they do not associate Obama with any of it. I bet you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a memo from Obama to Lois Lerner saying,

Together Dear Editor: Your editorial of last week, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Got Plans? Check the history,â&#x20AC;? resonated with me. According to the editorial, â&#x20AC;&#x153;To resist change is futile; there is no way, and no reason, to do it. To shape change is desirable, but hard to do.â&#x20AC;? Ultimately, as you said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pagosa Country will be left to our descendants and, more particularly, to relative newcomers.â&#x20AC;? Change is very difficult for some â&#x20AC;&#x201D; those who have power and influence want to keep it and many view the past through sentimental lenses and desire to go back in time. Some just cannot imagine a bright vision for the future, so they cling to the past. But regardless, change is inevitable. You suggest we remember our communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history and authentic character when we contemplate the future. You go on to lament, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the area is being swept into a new era â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one that unfortunately mirrors a too-common suburban model â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a model that is counter to the history here.â&#x20AC;? I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree more. The new, young families and other â&#x20AC;&#x153;newcomersâ&#x20AC;? did not choose to come here to see Pagosa become more like the urban communities they left behind. They came because of Pagosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uniqueness â&#x20AC;&#x201D; our small town character, laidback lifestyle, authentic people and natural recreation and beauty and, yes, our history. Will we drift aimlessly along and allow change to just happen to us? Or do we make a future community of our own choosing? Prosperity is not an accident.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Target the Tea Party.â&#x20AC;? He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to give her orders. He wanted her in that particular role based on who he is, and who she is. Obama knew she had a history of using government to target conservatives. After all, under her leadership in the 1990s, the FCC sued the Christian Coalition (which, after she put them through the wringer, was completely cleared of any wrong doing). So Lerner needed no instructions to glean what obummer wanted from her. And Obama knew full well what he could expect from her. She showed up hating conservatives, despising the Tea Party. She arrived wanting to punish them. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why she was put there.

County moves to acquire property for bridge replacement By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

The Archuleta County Board of County Commissioners voted Tuesday to allow County Attorney Todd Starr to begin eminent domain proceedings for property located south of Pagosa Springs needed for a bridge replacement. The project will replace the Rio Blanco Bridge located on County Road 337, south of Pagosa Springs, off of U.S. 84. According to Starr at Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, SEH, contractor for the bridge replacement, hired another firm for right-of-way negotiation for the project. While other rights of way were secured, the firm has been unable to locate owners of one piece of property (not the entire lot) needed for the road work, Starr explained. That piece of property, called the Carrico property, was valued at less than $5,000 in March, Starr added. But, no living owner of the property has been found. An offer to acquire the property that was sent by certified mail was returned, and the county has worked through a New Mexico probate court in an effort to contact the heirs to the property, with those efforts unsuccessful, Starr continued. Those heirs are Lanora Linton and Hughey McKinney. No owner is associated with the property in Archuleta County records, Starr said. Starr said the county will seek quiet title to

the property and an order of immediate possession to allow for construction of the bridge in 2014. In the meantime, money will be given to a receiver appointed to the case in the event that owners of the property can be found. Anyone with information about Linton and McKinney is asked to call the county attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office at 264-8401. Also at the meeting, the board: â&#x20AC;˘ Approved the submission for an Emergency Management and Performance Grant through the state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. The grant, according to agenda documentation, is an ongoing grant that helps local governments defer the costs of emergency management. At the meeting, Drew Petersen, director of emergency management for Archuleta County, said the county is seeking money left over from 2012 through the grant program to increase the capabilities of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emergency Operations Center. The grant, Petersen said, is a 50-50 cost share, with the county having already spent its match in an acceptable manner. To be more competitive, Petersen said the county is also pledging an in-kind match of 74 hours of installation time, which would be completed by EOC staff and volunteers. â&#x20AC;˘ Approved two letters of support for the Town of Pagosa Springs to seek grant funding

from Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO). One of those letters is for a grant request for funds to purchase property located at 140 South 6th Street as part of the Riverwalk trail system. The second letter is supporting a grant application to construct a 6th Street pedestrian bridge as part of the Riverwalk. â&#x20AC;˘ The board approved a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the county and Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office to more clearly identify roles and responsibilities of each entity as they relate to the use of Stevenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Field, the Archuleta County Airport. The MOU is part of an ongoing process to ensure safe and secure operations at the airport. â&#x20AC;˘ The board approved hiring within two county departments and offices to fill vacant positions. The first position is a part-time clerk for the Treasurerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office, with the other being a kitchen supervisor in the Senior Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dining hall. Agenda items seeking to fill two other positions within the county were pulled from the agenda at the beginning of the meeting by County Administrator Jesse Smith. â&#x20AC;˘ The board ratified a decision made last week by sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proclamation to lift the fire restrictions for unincorporated lands within Archuleta County. The next regular meeting of the BoCC is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 20 and is the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quarterly evening meeting. randi@pagosasun.com

Letters n Continued from A3

right now is a coup â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not violent, not militaristic; but nevertheless a takeover of a government by the Obama administration and his thugs. Many folks envision a coup d etat as a bunch of rebels driving beat-up Jeeps around and firing machine guns. But this is a peaceful coup, where the administration is transforming the nation into something it was not founded to be. You know it and I know it. This is what animates me. This is why the Tea Party exists. America was founded on certain principles, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re under assault. Chief among them, the freedoms and rights protected by the Constitution concerning speech, religion, arms and privacy (â&#x20AC;&#x153;the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effectsâ&#x20AC;?). So â&#x20AC;Ś in the midst of learning that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re under drone surveillance, and that secret government agencies are hovering, vacuuming every call, e-mail, communication, keystroke, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re told: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Calm down.â&#x20AC;? Nothing whatsoever to worry about. Cause in the midst of a peaceful coup, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to name it. And then repel it. By voting out the miscreants! Jim Sawicki

Need? Dear Editor: So, now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an indoor â&#x20AC;&#x153;rec centerâ&#x20AC;? ... again, just what is this all about? Some say our young folks and tourists need it. Hmmmm.

Well, some of us believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more about money, â&#x20AC;&#x153;ourâ&#x20AC;? money. Of course, it takes money to make money. Do we really need another swimming pool in town ... yeah, â&#x20AC;&#x153;another one?â&#x20AC;? We already have a nice affordable swimming pool across the street from the hot springs and for those who wish something more â&#x20AC;&#x153;posh,â&#x20AC;? we have the hot springs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; two facilities, the one by the river and the one atop a building where the view is awesome.All three are supplied by our unique natural â&#x20AC;&#x153;healing waters.â&#x20AC;? Such an indoor facility will require a supply from our valuable domestic water supply. Do we really â&#x20AC;&#x153;needâ&#x20AC;? this? Oh, but it will have a water slide! Oh my, we have nature-made slides all over the place during our winters and when they melt away, we enjoy other

outdoor activities that are available free of charge. Is this simply to keep up with the Joneses? Do we really want to be like the Joneses? Do our tourists really miss what they have at home when they come here? If so, then why do so many come? And why do so many return year after year? They come because we are different, our community and surroundings are â&#x20AC;&#x153;refreshing,â&#x20AC;? a true â&#x20AC;&#x153;getaway.â&#x20AC;? Again, I ask, what in the world is wrong about being different? Pagosa Springs is one of the most blessed places on earth because of our surroundings and the quality of our people. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the money idea fool you. Is this the way you want to spend your money and our precious water supply? Patty Tillerson

LEGISLATURE

YOUR NEEDS ARE UNIQUE, TRUST US

Keep Colorado a land of opportunity Summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winding up with the start of back-to-school sales. Delicious Western Slope produce is showing up at the grocery stores and roadside stands. The last wave of summer visitors is cramming in as much fun as they can before heading home. All of this reminds me of the many hard-working people in southwest Colorado for whom summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as much a time for play, but a time to earn their bread and butter to get through the leaner months ahead. For those who work in retail, agriculture, construction, public safety and the hospitality industry, summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very busy time indeed, and they make our area what it is for many others. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent much time this summer in meetings, large and small, getting input from my constituents about how things are going for them. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a general sense of economic improvement, but still

considerable concern about what the future holds. I share that concern. There are many changes passed at the state legislature last Sen. Robertsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; year that will Report have financial impacts on the average individual and family. While I welcome being wrong, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the promised savings materializing to balance the new costs as Obamacare is implemented. People in my district already struggle to see a doctor or other provider, period. Access to healthcare is much more than carrying an insurance card in your wallet and, if you doubt that, ask those already on Medicaid,

Medicare or Tricare who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a doctor. Funding healthcare reform by reducing provider reimbursements is going to exacerbate that problem, not fix it. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got work to do. New laws and regulations with costs are going to start making themselves known to the small businesses in my district, at a time when our economy is struggling to keep its (our) head above water. Around here, business owners are your friends and neighbors. Feedback tells me that employers are very worried about increasing costs for utilities, health insurance and other bottom line expenses, afraid that the next step could be layoffs or reducing employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hours just to keep the businesses open. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean to be depressing, but am urging that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important for you to be aware and involved with those you elect, at all governmental levels. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t promise sunshine and roses each time you are in touch with those in government, but suc-

cessful representative democracy requires engagement from the electorate as well as from the elected. If those elected fail to listen, remember and vote accordingly at the next election. In the late 1800s, my greatgrandparents traveled westward by wagon and homesteaded in northeastern Colorado. Tough environmental conditions for raising sheep made their effort unsuccessful and they returned east to farm there. Nearly a century later, I arrived in Colorado at the optimistic age of 21, with literally nothing more than a duffel bag, hiking boots and a willingness to work hard, so I could stay here. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked many jobs along the way and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want Colorado government, at the city, county, state or federal level, to become the new barrier driving people out of our state. We need to remember the contributions made by all in our communities, young and older, and make sure that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn Colorado into a place where only the already-wealthy can stay.

Special event money available for organizations By Mary Jo Coulehan SUN Columnist

Part of the 2013 tourism budget presented to the county commissioners for expenditures from the lodging tax dollars collected was an amount that was to be used for special events. The commissioners approved $10,000 to be distributed to non-profit organizations that are producing a special event that will attract visitors to the area or improve the community experience of the visitor through the event. The funds can also be used for a nonprofit to develop a tourism attraction and with this funding improve the facility or create an activity to attract or enhance the experience of the visitor. The non-profit organization can apply the special event funding to marketing efforts to attract visitors to our area, with an emphasis to their facility or event. Applications must be submitted and there are restrictions: the amount of funding for any particular group cannot exceed $1,000; the organization cannot have requested and received funding from the Town Tourism Committee for that particular event. As stated in the application, the organization must be specific on use of the funds and present a budget along with the application. A group of five community members who are not involved in a non-profit volunteer position or sitting on the board of a nonprofit involved in the grant process will be chosen to review the applications.

The application will be available on Monday, Aug. 12, and can be obtained online at www.pagosaspringschamber.com under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stay Connectedâ&#x20AC;? tab or in hard copy at the Chamber offices. The application must be completed and returned to the Chamber by Friday, Aug. 30. Reviews will be set for early September. If your event or marketing efforts have already been established for 2013, you can still apply for funding as a reimbursement, provided you follow the guidelines. Questions can be directed to Mary Jo Coulehan at 264-2360 or director@pagosachamber.com. Potentially, a minimum of 10 organizations could receive some funding assistance. The Chamber board and the county commissioners look forward to investing lodging tax dollars in the community on behalf of tourism efforts by our many great organizations.

Association of Realtors holds fund-raiser tonight By Peggy Andrews Special to The SUN

While working hard to help individuals buy or sell property in southwest Colorado, Pagosa Springs Realtors have been quietly supporting their local community. For 15 years, the Pagosa Springs Area Association of Realtors (PSAAR) has raised funds for Bucks for Bikes, a program started by local real estate brokers. Bucks for Bikes takes donated funds and purchases brand new bikes to give to disadvantaged local children for Christmas. In 2012, Bucks for Bikes provided 17 new bikes locally as gifts. Another program partially funded by PSAAR membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; donations is Archuleta Scholarships in Escrow. Participating brokers donate automatically to this fund out of each closing check. Funds are accumulated and credited to Pagosa Springs High School graduates based on an academic point system. Funds earned in high school are available to the student to pay for college expenses for up to five years after graduation. Archuleta Scholarships

in Escrow began in 1990. During the last three years, PSAAR members have contributed $17,500 directly to A.S.E. A new initiative of PSAAR is the Pagosa Springs Realtors Community Outreach (PSRCOR). This program was created to raise funds for local organizations that rely on donations to operate. PSRCOR has selected the Pagosa Youth Center, Pagosa Outreach Connection and Bucks for Bikes as the initial recipients. The Pagosa Youth Center is a place for local youth and teens ages 12-19 to gather after school in a drugfree environment until their parents can pick them up after work. The center has a basketball court, game room, computer room, and provides meals and healthy snacks. The Youth Center also has a summer day camp program for children ages 5-12. Pagosa Outreach Connection is a community-based organization that helps locals with assistance for many needs including rent, utilities, medical expenses and other necessities. PSRCOR is holding a fund-raising event tonight, Aug. 8, at the

Diamond Hitch Stables, 2404 Piedra Road from 5 to 10 p.m. The Cowboy Campfire Fund-raiser will be a great night of fun and entertainment including a barbecue dinner, live country music, hayrides, horse rides, a scavenger hunt for kids, a silent auction, door prizes and more.

Conflict n Continued from front

from the town’s current lagoon site to the Vista wastewater treatment facility owned by the Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District. At the Tuesday night meeting, Graham was not allowed a spot on the agenda to argue his case. Instead, he was forced to use the public comment portion of the meeting, which has a three-minute limit. He began by reading a prepared statement: “There are a lot of snakes that live down Trujillo Road. Folks frequently have trouble differentiating between species. I was reminded of this as I was driving to town the other day, when I saw a big bull snake sunning itself on the pavement. “My family and I pulled over to look at it and take pictures. It was big; almost six feet long. As we were standing there a woman drove up to us at a really high rate of speed and stopped beside us. She said, ‘Wow! What’s that?’ “We told her it was a bull snake; we have a lot of them here, but they are a very necessary part of the ecosystem. We would have a lot more problems without their help. We went on to say that while they

may bite, it is a rarity, and they are not venomous, so you won’t die. “Without pause she said, ‘So you mean I shouldn’t run over it?’ “Things are not always what they seem, and occasionally go against the markings on the surface. Despite certain claims, I do not consider myself a rattlesnake, nor am I anyone’s pet. In fact, I believe I am owed an apology for some of the harsh words uttered in this room.” At this point, Graham paused and stared at former council member Mark Weiler, who was sitting at the table next to him. Weiler said nothing and continued to stare straight ahead. Graham was referring to comments that were made at the PSSGID’s July 18 meeting, where several members of the board characterized Graham as someone who would go back on his word and a handshake, and Weiler referred to Graham as a “pet rattlesnake.” “My family and I have been here for some time, doing what we do and trying to help where we can. I do not believe we deserve the lack of respect that has been shown to us thus far. We have never tried to hold the town ‘over the barrel.’ We believe that a lifetime of residence

in this community and the caliber of the situation should earn the neighborly professionalism of the decision makers and the powers that be. “The fact that the new pipeline plans reflect the line in the wrong spot, and with more lines than we initially agreed to, has prompted us to contact legal counsel, a move that we have resisted. We do not believe that town council or the sanitation board should reach for the attorney before effective dialogue has been had. The dialogue we have had with staff was rendered null when the drawings were finally produced and the errors displayed. “Again, I respectfully ask, please do not pursue the installation of this line as currently drawn. To do so would not be fair or just.” Before the meeting, Graham sent a nine-page letter to each board member, outlining what had happened so far and explaining his side of the story. “The process of easement acquisition for the new sewer pipeline has been the most frustrating, difficult, and demeaning experience as local citizens my wife and I have ever been through,” Graham’s letter began. “We are amazed by what has occurred and could never

cable and, after deciding to not tie it to his car, directed the woman to stand on a chair while he was holding the loop of the rope open. According to the report, Chavez stated if she did not die while hanging, he would beat her to death with a piece of wood. Allegedly, when the woman refused to place the rope around her

neck, Chavez began beating her with a tire iron. She also reported being beat with a sock full of rocks. Following the initial investigation, Chavez was located nearby in his car and was arrested on charges of attempted first-degree murder, second-degree aggravated assault, false imprisonment, and harassment. randi@pagosasun.com

capable hands, which is important to us at CASB.” “Our work together has taken our education message and story to state, national and international platforms,” DeVoti wrote, “and has put this community on the map regarding Colorado K-12 education. But don’t ask me if that’s so! Ask the commissioner of education, ask the Colorado Legacy Foundation, ask the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, but most importantly, ask the students who have gone on into the world from a Pagosa Springs public school education. In 2011 The Colorado Association of School Boards recognized you as one of three ‘Boards of Distinction’ out of 178 in the state, and for good reason! With you, the district is in good hands.” DeVoti, whose background is in special education, helped establish the alternative high school at the Archuleta County Education Center, which he then directed for four years. Moving to the ASD, DeVoti served as principal at the interme-

diate school from 2001-2007 before being named superintendent. He then helped the district establish the Pirate Achievement Center, an in-district alternative education program serving high school students. The district also created FAMA: Fine Arts Magnet Academy, a pathway focused on arts education. “In addition to his school district work,” the CASB news release concluded, “DeVoti was appointed in 2012 by Colorado Education Commissioner Robert Hammond to the Global Education Leader’s Program (GELP), a six-member team collaborating globally to transform education. He has served on Gov. John Hickenlooper’s Education Leadership Council since 2011.” At the meeting, DeVoti recommended assistant superintendent Linda Reed as his replacement, and offered to remain in the district until the end of September to help with the transition. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

a goal for the future. With the single rate structure, the base rate would increase exponentially. The directors decided that the fairest way to distribute the cost of running water and sanitation at present is through the three-tiered system. According to Renee Lewis, special project manager for PAWSD, “It’s how much money we need to run the place, then we have to decide how to charge everyone.” “I concur with what director Walsh said,” director Roy Vega explained. “We could go to a single tier, but right now I do not think that a single tier is beneficial for our ratepayers, especially the payers who are on a fixed income. I think the tiered structure is the better structure for the time being, so I will favor option five, as well.” “If we decide option five, when can we revisit?” asked director Burt Adams. “It’s at the board’s direction,” business manager Shellie Peterson said. “I mean, we can revisit it every year. Typically, you look at the cost to do so and you make that judgement. Has enough time gone by for your customers to absorb what you’ve already done and change their behavior to where the data makes any sense to revisit it?” “So, realistically, a couple of years?” Adams asked. “Two is pretty short,” Peterson said. “I was looking at it with Walsh and the one-tiered system,” Adams

said, “but the numbers indicate that at least for the next couple years to look at (option) five, and I reluctantly say that, but that is what the numbers show.” “I am also reluctant, but I will have to go along with that, as well. I really wanted to strive for a single tier, but circumstances say that we may just have to put that off for a little bit. People are used to the tiered structure,” said director Allan Bunch. “I’m OK with telling folks who own second homes here that it’s an expensive water system for you to use when you come two weeks a year,” Walsh said, “And I hope you come ten weeks and decide to move here, but the fact that you may pay a little more to me does not seem unfair rather than the folks who live and work and try to survive here so you can visit it and enjoy it.” The directors approved the motion to move forward and present the fifth option to Aranda for completion before it is submitted as a final report. At this time, the board has not formally said that this is the new rate structure. The next step in the rate study is to have Aranda draft the final presentation, including option five, and present it to the board. A vote will then take place to accept a rate study option, and changes in the rate structure will be implemented. Melissa.Stedman@pagosasun. com

ing them at her. After several failed attempts at lighting the woman on fire, the report states she was then told to go rinse off in the river. Following her rinsing off, the woman reported that Chavez struck her in the face, then got a rope and tied a knot. He then reportedly placed the rope over a

away from his two sons, who are currently either working for or going to school at Fort Lewis College in Durango. “As a district under your oversight we not only had the financial savvy to remain current with staff salaries,” the letter detailed, “bettering over 95% of Colorado, and keeping our quality educators from leaving, but our value of education increased programming in all subject areas. We were recognized as one of only several Innovation Districts in Colorado. When other districts cut opportunities, we added them.” “We are thrilled that Mark has agreed to join our team,” said CASB Executive Director Ken DeLay. “His strong track record as a leader in the Archuleta School District, as well as statewide, will greatly benefit our work with school boards and superintendents across Colorado. In addition, he leaves his district in a position of strength and in

use of 8,001 to 20,000 gallons. The third-tier rate charges users $11.30 per 1,000 gallons for water use over the 20,000 gallons. In this structure, the more water a household uses, the more that household pays. Option five increases the base rate for water service to $23.50 for every tier and retains the three-tier structure, while decreasing the addition charge for each tier to $4.22 for the first tier, $8.44 for the second tier and $10.60 for the third tier. With these base rates, there will be an allowance of 2,000 gallons of water per EU/per month before the user enters the tier structure. Users will not enter into tiers until they have surpassed the 2,000 gallons of water allowance. Under this plan, users will pay the base rate, regardless of water use and regardless of whether they are permanent residents or parttime residents. “Option five, providing two thousand gallons per EU to commercial property owners is, I think, it’s not my ideological favorite,” director Glenn Walsh explained, “But I think for the district and this economy and the people who try to live and work there who don’t just come visit here once or twice a year, well, I think it’s the fairest.” The PAWSD board had hoped to move away from the three-tiered system to a single-tiered rate structure, however, weren’t able to make that change at this time. It remains

have imagined the sequence of events which has brought us to our current situation.” The letter went on to describe promises made to him by Gregg Mayo, the engineer from PAWSD who is in charge of the pipeline construction project. These promises included moving the pipeline so it would be underneath an existing roadway, thereby minimizing the damage to Graham’s property caused by construction, and installing an additional lift station to allow Graham and his neighbors along Trujillo Road access to the new sewer system. Graham’s letter described how Mayo attempted to deceive him by claiming the easement agreement he was signing was only a rough draft and would not be filed with the county until a final agreement was worked out, including the relocation of the line and the additional lift station described above. However, claimed Graham, Mayo failed to mention these promises to the PSSGID board, failed to produce a final draft of the easement, crossed off the notes he and Graham had made on the document, and filed it with the county anyway, as if it were the final agreement. However, Graham’s wife, who is also a legal owner of the property, had not signed it, rendering it not legally binding. That’s when town manager David Mitchem got involved. Graham’s letter claims it was Mitchem who informed him it was too late to install the additional lift station or to include Graham and his neighbors in the system, but that other compensation could be worked out, such as waiving the plant investment fees for other properties Graham owns. However, when Mitchem presented the situation to the PSSGID board, he characterized Graham as backing out of his previous agreement and demanding six sewer taps as compensation. “I had to defend myself as though I had intentionally perpetrated a fraud, to snare unwitting staff in a boondoggle for personal, financial gain,” Graham wrote. “Again our goodwill was slighted.” At that meeting Graham verbally agreed to sign, and have his wife sign, a final easement agreement in exchange for six, free sewer taps. However, it took the town nearly six weeks to provide the new easement agreement which, as it turned out, did not include any of the concessions concerning the blasting used to create the ditch or any maps or plans to show where the pipeline would be placed. After more dispute between Graham and Mitchem, the final drawings were produced, and, to Graham’s dismay, they showed the pipeline in its original position, which would require the destruction of trees and the demolition of his garage. According to Graham, this controversy has nothing to do with financial compensation and everything to do with trying to protect his property from an overzealous

project engineer and town manager. “I am writing to each of you directly and personally hoping that the complete truth will be heard, without manipulation, and that effective dialogue may still ensue,” Graham’s letter stated. However, after the board returned from its executive session, it became obvious that Graham’s hope was fruitless and a court battle was looming. The board had moved into executive session to consult, via telephone, with town attorney Bob Cole, and after an hour reconvened the regular meeting, where four motions were immediately made without any summary of what had been discussed behind closed doors. “Based on our discussion and based on information received from legal counsel,” board member

Don Volger stated, “I would move that we direct staff, with assistance from legal counsel, to draft and send a letter to Mr. Graham advising him that all of the previous offers made to acquire an easement are currently removed from the table, and to also direct staff to discontinue any types of negotiations in this manner.” Board member Darrel Cotton seconded the motion and every council member but Schanzenbaker voted, “Yes”. Further motions were made in quick succession: to hire someone to assess the value of Graham’s property, to make one final offer to Graham for an easement in exchange for fair market value based on that assessment, and, if Graham refuses the final offer, to proceed with the eminent domain lawsuit. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

Move underway to start caregiver support group By Musetta Wollenweber SUN Columnist

Those of us involved in caregiving know the challenges at hand. Days and moments might be bright and cheery â&#x20AC;&#x201D; other times can be flat, not so great and frustrating. At times, it is helpful to have the opportunity to be able to chat with others who are in similar situations. You might find suggestions on how to handle certain situations, gather information or just find it helpful to be able to vent. There are many facets to caregiving ... donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let it get you down. I am in the midst of gathering suggestions concerning formation of a caregiver support group, but I need to hear from you to make it work. Please give me a call at 2642167, Ext. 28, and let me know what day of the week and time is best for you. Without your input, I cannot put a group together. I look forward to hearing from you.

Understand the terms and conditions: if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find the terms and conditions for the offer, or donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand them, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign up or agree to the offer. Monitor your financial statements: if you see charges you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree to, contact the free trial company directly to make sure you cancel any future charges. You can also work with your

financial institution to dispute future charges. The bottom line is that you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign up for random services or products you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need just because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re â&#x20AC;&#x153;free.â&#x20AC;? If you are considering an offer, find, read, and understand the fine print before making a decision. If the free trial company used deceptive or misleading tactics, you should file a complaint with the Colorado Attorney. (From AARP ElderWatch â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a program with the Colorado Attorney General.)

Update on e-book friction between libraries and publishers By Carole Howard SUN columnist, and the Library Staff

In past columns, we have explored the friction between libraries and publishers over e-books â&#x20AC;&#x201D; particularly around publishers refusing to offer their e-book titles through libraries, dramatically raising prices or imposing other restrictions. The good news is that there has been some progress. All of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Sixâ&#x20AC;? publishers are now engaged in library elending pilot programs or provide at least some of their titles for purchase by libraries. (Hachette, HarperCollins, Macmillan, Penguin, Random House and Simon & Shuster are called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Sixâ&#x20AC;? because they control about two thirds of the U.S. consumer book publishing market. With proposed mergers in the works, the number of publishing houses could drop to four.) While any progress is welcome, there still are too many restrictions. For example, Simon & Schuster still denies to libraries their popular e-book titles such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Team of Rivalsâ&#x20AC;? by Doris Kearns Goodwin and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bruce,â&#x20AC;? the biography of Bruce Springsteen by Peter Ames Carlin. Other examples: Macmillan wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow libraries to buy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Killing Kennedyâ&#x20AC;? by Bill Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly, and Penguin has a one-year expiration date on e-books like â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Helpâ&#x20AC;? by Kathryn Stockett. Hachette will now offer all its e-book titles to libraries â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but at three times the highest price of any edition than in print. HarperCollins and Random House let their e-book titles circulate only 26 times before the license expires. These are complex and contentious issues. Libraries argue that they play a vital role in advancing literacy in a society where bookstores disappear every day, while the number of books available to read has grown dramatically. At the heart of the struggle is whether libraries

increase book sales or cannibalize them. Publishers say that library e-books hurt their sales because it is so easy and inexpensive (read: free) to borrow them from libraries. They say e-books donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wear out and patrons can even borrow them without visiting the physical library. Libraries counter that sometimes they buy duds and, unlike Amazon and bookstores, they pay up front and are not permitted to return such mistakes. They say that while bestsellers probably are cannibalized, libraries help the sales of new authors and older titles, thus benefiting unknown authors, publishers and library patrons. Clearly, e-books present new and difficult issues for both libraries and publishers. We hope the situation can be resolved to everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefit. But at least some progress is being made.

Book sale next weekend The Friends of the Libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual book sale takes place Aug. 16 and 17 at Centerpoint Church, 2750 Cornerstone Drive, in the Aspen Village Center south of U.S. 160 (note new location). Friday, Aug. 16, is the Friends of the Library short annual meeting, potluck and preview sale from 6-9 p.m. The sale opens to the public on Saturday, Aug. 17, from 8 a.m.1 p.m. This event is a great deal for you and for the library: You get hard cover and paperback books, videos, CDs and DVDs at greatly discounted prices, and the library benefits from this hugely important fund-raising event for us. We hope youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take this opportunity to join the Friends of the Library, which you can do at the door on Friday evening. Individual membership is $15, family membership is $25 and lifetime membership is $100 per person.

Build Awareness Emergency care in non-VA facilities with Advertising VETERANâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CORNER

By Raymond Taylor SUN Columnist

VA guidelines and recommendations for emergency care in non-VA facilities can be summarized as follows: A medical emergency is when you have an injury or illness that is so severe that without immediate treatment, the injury or illness threatens your health or life. In your best judgment, if you believe your health or life is in danger, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. The nearest VA Medical Center must be notified as soon as possible, within 72 hours, so you as the veteran are better aware of services the VA may limit payment for. You, your family, friends or hospital staff can make this notification. Provide the VA with information about your emergency event and services being provided to you. Ask the VA for guidance on how they will consider reimbursing these emergency charges on your behalf, so you can plan accordingly. The veteran bears the ultimate responsibility of VA notification. If the doctor wants to admit you into the hospital because the admission is an emergency, the veteran is still required to notify the VA. If a VA bed is available, and veteran can be safely transferred, the veteran must move to the VA hospital. Refusal will result in VA not paying for any further care. Note: If the veteran leaves the emergency room prior to being treated by a physician, the VA might not consider claims for that emergency event, and the veteran might be liable for some or all resulting ambulance and emergency room charges, regardless of veteran eligibility. Payment by the VA depends on VA eligibility. The VA may pay all, some or none of the charges, based on the veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s serviceconnected conditions, or non service-connected conditions. The veteran may also have copays based on VA enrollment.

Sometimes the extent of healthcare services reimbursable by the VA is limited by federal law. A veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enrollment in the VA HealthCare System may affect eligibility for emergency care at VAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expense. VAMC Albuquerque N.M. emergency notification: (800) 465-8262, Ext. 5739.

Scott Spoede takes helm of football program By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

The Pagosa Springs Pirate high school football team is gearing up this month for a fresh season with a new head coach who has some innovative ideas about student leadership and the direction he would like to take the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My whole plan with this program is to raise up their character and integrity,â&#x20AC;? Scott Spoede explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my plan with these guys, and I want to win some football along the way. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a big part of it, but football games come and go. The life lessons we pull from it are what stays with us forever, so when these boys graduate from high school what I want them to have is more depth of character and a sense of integrity that will guide

Gray Wolf memberships due by Aug. 30 By David Lopez Special to The SUN

The Gray Wolf Ski Club reminds all current members and prospective members 50 years and older that membership forms, with dues for the 2013-2014 ski season, must be received no later than Aug. 30, 2013, in order to receive the Wolf Creek Ski Area season pass discount. Membership forms can be downloaded from the Gray Wolf Ski Club website at http://graywolfskiclub.com/join_ski_club.php.

their lifestyle and choices.â&#x20AC;? Spoede has been in Pagosa Springs for two years and was an assistant coach last year under head coach Olin Garrison. He has taught seventh-grade math at the middle school and coached the football program there. He was the defensive coordinator for the high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s varsity team last year, and this year he will be the offensive coordinator as well as the head coach. Spoede moved here two years ago from Houston, Texas, where he taught math and coached football, so this will only be his fourth year as both a teacher and a coach â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a rather quick rise to the head coach position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple of the guys will be familiar faces,â&#x20AC;? Spoede said as he described his new coaching staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My defensive coordinator is Mike Kelly, and then Todd Shulda will be the JVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offensive coach. He volunteered last year, and then we hired him on this year. Then we got a new guy in town named Zach Wood. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the JV defensive coach, but all of us will be coaching on both sides of the ball.â&#x20AC;? The team just wrapped up its summer camp last week, which included a scrimmage against Monte Vista. The camp included participation by approximately 25 to 30 boys, who got a good taste for what they will be doing this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I was pretty fortunate as far as when I got to step into the program,â&#x20AC;? Spoede confessed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, we graduated two seniors, so we had essentially all sophomores and juniors playing last year. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of experience coming back, so I feel like I am inheriting a pretty strong team.â&#x20AC;? The team has been without a coach for nearly six months, since

Garrison retired last year, after a fairly dismal season that included only one win and eight losses. It was only his second year as the Piratesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head coach. During the six months since Garrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement, a number of the players moved or decided not to play football. Now, however, things are changing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can tell this group of seniors is pretty focused and motivated,â&#x20AC;? Spoede said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have been in the weight room all summer. We have been going down to the field after our weight room time and just going over some drills and stuff. They want to get in the reps. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really see last year; the student leadership just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really pushing it. This year, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem like we have to pull any strings; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re self-motivated. I think I fell into a great spot, into something pretty sweet.â&#x20AC;? Spoede also coached wrestling at the middle school last year, so he already has a good relationship with students moving up to the high school and has been able to recruit a fairly strong team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some new guys coming up this year that havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played since middle school or have never played before,â&#x20AC;? the coach explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to get a picture of how they will do. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to get a feel for how your team is going to do at this point. I will know a little bit more after two-a-days.â&#x20AC;? Two-a-day practices will start Aug. 12. All high school athletes are required to attend a mandatory orientation meeting on Aug. 15. Then the regular season kicks off with an away game against Centauri on Aug. 31. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

EXTENSION VIEWPOINTS

Resources to help create a wildfire-defensible zone By Roberta Tolan SUN Columnist

In July, there were three articles highlighting the importance of creating a wildfire-defensible zone around your home and structures to maximize the chances that they will survive a wildfire. Three defensible zones were outlined and the specific activities that each zone requires were detailed. The creation of each zone requires the removal of ignitable materials such as pine needles, wood mulch, slash piles, and some trees and shrubs. The following workshop and rebate program are available to help county residents get started with creating their wildfire-defensible zones and chipping the slash created through mitigation efforts.

Free workshop FireWise of Southwest Colorado and Colorado State University Extension Archuleta County are sponsoring a free Home Ignition Zone and Defensible Space Workshop for the public on Friday, Aug. 23 from 10 a.m.-noon in the Loma Linda Subdivision, on U.S. 84 south of Pagosa Springs. Attendees will see how a wildfire safety home inspection is done and how to develop a defensible space around their home using Colorado State Forest Service guidelines. Anyone concerned about how to protect their home from the risk of wildfire is encouraged to attend. For more information on this workshop, contact Bill Trimarco at archuletafirewise@gmail.com or 264-0430.

Chipper rental rebate FireWise of Southwest Colorado is offering residents a rebate to help offset the cost of chipping slash from wildfire mitigation work conducted on private property in Archuleta County. Residents will be reimbursed for the lesser of $100 per day or 50 percent of the cost to rent a

chipper or to utilize a company for chipper services used to chip slash created during wildfire mitigation work on any privately owned property. Rebates will be processed on a first-received basis and are valid from May 1 through Sept. 30, 2013, or until funds are expended. The following rules apply: â&#x20AC;˘ A receipt for contract work or chipper rental is required. Rebates will not be given without documentation of chipper expense. â&#x20AC;˘ At least two photos of the project area and chipping taking place should be included with this application. â&#x20AC;˘ Only one rebate per property/property owner and per receipt, not to exceed $500. â&#x20AC;˘ The work must be completed

and/or receipt dated between May 1 and Sept. 30, 2013. â&#x20AC;˘ Subdivisions or homeowner associations renting a chipper for members can apply for this rebate. One refund will be sent to the HOA for distribution, not to each individual resident. For more information on this rebate program, application information and additional fire mitigation information, e-mail archuletafirewise@gmail.com or call 264-0430.

The Pre-K Butterfly class from Seeds of Learning went on a new adventure last week at Hershey Ranch. The youngsters did many exciting activities and learned a lot of new things on their field trip. The children made sailboats at school and got to float them down a stream. The kids and parents went on a nature scavenger hunt in search of something slimy, sticky, and something an animal would eat. They even found a few animal skulls. A picnic lunch was eaten at the “campfire” around the tents that the children helped pitch. After a morning of lots of fresh air and open space to run and explore, everyone was ready to return to school for their naps. This was a joint project between Seeds of Learning, GECKO (Giving Every Child Knowledge of the Outdoors) and the Southwest Land Alliance (SLA). GECKO traditionally focuses on older children who benefit from the

of, beetle-caused die-off of Engelmann spruce around Wolf Creek Pass. Originally scheduled for early July, this program was postponed by the West Fork Complex Fire, which exhibited extreme fire behavior in areas of beetle-killed trees. The meeting place for this hike will be the large parking area at the junction of U.S. 160 and Forest Road 039 (the Falls Creek Road) about 17 miles northeast of Pagosa Springs. One of the many benefits of summer rains in Pagosa Country is the emergence of a wide variety of mushrooms in the evergreen forest. Gretchen Fitzgerald will lead a slowpaced walk in the Williams Creek area to identify mushroom species

on Friday, Aug. 23, at 10 a.m. The program will begin at the Williams Creek Trailhead. Turn off U.S.160 onto Piedra Road (County Road 600 and Forest Road 631), drive 22.3 miles and turn right on Williams Creek Road (Forest Road 640); continue to the trailhead, at its end. For many years, local researcher Peggy Bergon has collected photographs of arborglyphs — carvings on aspen trees done by Hispanic sheepherders dating from the late 1800s to the 1950s. On this three-mile walk, you will see many of their writings and artworks while learning about the early sheep industry in Archuleta County. The program will meet at the Buckles Lake (V Rock) Trailhead on Saturday, Sept. 7, at 9 a.m. Drive

Common hunting violations can be costly By Colorado Parks and Wildlife Special to The SUN

Every hunting season, officers for Colorado Parks and Wildlife hand out thousands of tickets for violations that cost hunters hundreds of thousands of dollars. While some of those tickets are for flagrant violations of wildlife regulations and hunting laws, many more are for minor violations that could have been avoided. Hunters are reminded that not only can they be fined for violations, they can also lose their hunting privileges in Colorado and the 34 other states that cooperatively participate in a wildlife compact agreement. Rick Basagoitia, area wildlife manager for the San Luis Valley, explained that hunters need to set aside some time to review the Colorado Big Game Brochure. The brochure explains many of the common violations and how to avoid them. “Hunters must know their responsibilities when they get into the field,” Basagoitia said. “Wildlife laws are written to protect a valuable resource and for safety.” Following are some of the more common violations that occur every year: • Not wearing fluorescent orange: You must

wear at least 500 inches of daylight fluorescent orange, including a head covering of the same color that can be seen from all directions. Mesh garments are legal but not recommended. Camouflage orange does not qualify. • Carrying loaded firearms in or on vehicles: Rifles must not have ammunition in the chamber while in or on any motor vehicles. For those riding ATVs, weapons (rifles and bows) must also be in a closed case and fully unloaded (chamber and magazine). Most accidents involving firearms occur in or near vehicles. • Shooting from a road: Before firing a shot, you must be at least 50 feet off of a designated state or county road, and just off forest service or BLM roads. You also cannot shoot across a road. • License not voided: After you kill an animal, you must void the license immediately. • Improperly attached carcass tag: The carcass tag must be attached to the animal. The best way is to cut a hole in the hide and attach with a tie. It is OK to wait until you get back to camp or to your vehicle to attach the carcass tag. • No evidence of sex: Be sure to leave evidence of sex naturally attached to the carcass. Evidence includes the head, the vulva or the scrotum.

• Waste of game meat: Big game meat can begin to spoil at 38 degrees. To keep the carcass cool, remove the hide as soon as possible after the kill to allow for air to circulate around the meat. Reduce the mass of the carcass by quartering the meat or boning out the meat. Place the meat in a cooler as soon as possible. Even in cold weather, a carcass should not hang outside for more than 36 hours. Remember: Because game meat contains very little fat, it cannot be aged like beef. The socalled “gamey taste” is caused by spoilage, not because the animal is wild. To learn how to field dress a big game animal, see the video at: http:// wildlife.state.co.us/NewsMedia/Videos. • Shooting a spike-antlered elk: Hunters who hold a cow elk tag sometimes shoot spike bulls. Be sure of your target. If you are shooting at a long distance or in low light conditions, it can be difficult to see spike antlers. If you are not absolutely sure, do not shoot. • Illegally tagging an animal: You can only place a tag on an animal that you shot. You cannot trade tags with other license holders, or use tags of other license holders. For more information about hunting in Colorado, see: http://wildlife.state.co.us/HUNTING/Pages/Hunting.aspx.

USFS closure order prohibits use of exploding targets The U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Region, working closely with the U.S. Attorney’s Office, announced that the Regional Forester has signed a regional closure order prohibiting un-permitted explosives on national forest system lands, specifically to prohibit the use of exploding targets. The closure order was announced by U.S. Attorney John Walsh, Rocky Mountain Regional Forester Dan Jiron, and U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Region Special Agent in Charge Laura Mark during a press conference about the wildfire danger caused by exploding targets. “Enjoying your public lands is what we encourage and promote every day,” said regional forester Jiron. “Hunting and target shooting are welcome recreational experiences on national forest system lands. We just want visitors to have safe and

enjoyable experiences.” Exploding targets have been identified as the cause of at least 16 wildfires in the western states, costing taxpayers over $33,000,000 in fire suppression costs. The order applies to all un-permitted explosives, but focuses on exploding targets. The closure order includes all national forests and grasslands in the fivestate Rocky Mountain Region. Those states include Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota. Exploding targets can be purchased legally and are intended for use as a target for firearms practice. Exploding targets generally consist of two or more separate chemical components that become an explosive when mixed together. The powder components are kept separate within individual containers for sale and transport. Once mixed, however, the components become explosive, and

thus are subject to federal explosive laws and regulations. The targets explode when struck by a bullet. When detonated, exploding targets often result in a fireball that can ignite vegetation and surrounding materials. The explosion also causes other risks to an individual’s health and safety. Under the Order, if caught using an exploding target, the user can face a fine of up to $5,000 and imprisonment of not more than six months. “The top priority is for people to be safe. The public should know that exploding targets pose serious dangers, not just in their actual explosion, but in the wildfires they can start,” said U.S. Attorney John Walsh. “By barring the use of exploding targets, today’s action will prevent wildfires and protect the public, including first responders who often come across the explosive. It’s important to note that the Forest Service’s new order does not affect or change the rules regarding target shooting or other safe uses of firearms in the national forest, but only prohibits the use of exploding targets that start wildfires.” “Exploding targets pose a very real safety threat to visitors and our employees” said U.S. Forest Service

Chief Tom Tidwell. “In the past year alone, at least sixteen wildfires on national forests have been associated with exploding targets, causing millions of dollars in suppression costs while threatening the safety and wellbeing of surrounding communities.” “We have seen a significant increase in the use of exploding targets on National Forest lands within the region,” said U.S. Forest Service Regional Special Agent in Charge Laura Mark. “Our objective is to educate the public on the dangers associated with the use of these targets in vegetation that can ignite a fire, as well as the safety risk they pose to the public, our employees and first responders. In addition to the seven fires caused by exploding targets on national forests in the Region since 2012, explosives ordinance demolition experts have had to respond on three occasions this year to safely dispose of unused targets that had been mixed but not yet used.” “The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is working on a Fire Prevention Order that will ban exploding targets on BLM lands in Colorado as well,” said John Bierk, state staff ranger for BLM Colorado/ Eastern States.

State Legislature. The plan, known as the “Path Forward” is being developed on a foundation of several other planning efforts that the agency has underway to address everything from big game management to parks and trails. The process is also drawing heavily on the strategic plans that the former Division of Wildlife and Colorado State Parks had in place. The “Path Forward” will set long-term strategic direction and budget priorities for the agency. “We encourage Colorado residents with an interest in managing our wildlife, parks and trails to tell us how we’re doing, to ask questions and to share their ideas about what they would like to see in the future for our agency,” said Patt Dorsey, southwest regional manager for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission is working closely with agency staff to develop the plan which is scheduled for completion by Dec. 31. The Montrose Parks and Wildlife office is located at 2300 S. Townsend Ave., which is also U.S. 550. For more information on the “Path Forward” go to http://wildlife.state.co.us/About/Pages/PathForward.aspx, or contact Dave Chadwick at dave.chadwick@state. co.us or (303) 291-7174.

August events at Chimney Rock National Monument By Nadia Werby Special to The SUN

Chimney Rock Interpretive Association (CRIA) invites you and your family to attend the Night Sky Archaeoastronomy Program on Friday, Aug. 9. Your evening begins with a talk at the Visitor Cabin amphitheater. Topics range from what the ancient people noticed in the night sky to how a telescope helps us see stars and current topics in astronomy. As darkness descends, guests drive to the High Mesa parking lot where volunteer astronomers await with telescopes to provide a closer look at the wonders of the night sky. Each telescope will focus on a different feature and the volunteer will change that focus periodically during the two-hour viewing time. This program is perfect for young families and those with limited mobility. All participants must be through the Colo. 151 gate by 6:45 p.m.; the opening program is scheduled from 7-8, with viewing from 8:3010:15. Reservations are suggested as space is limited, or tickets can be purchased at the Visitor Cabin prior to the program: $15 for adults and $5 for children 16 years and younger. Participants in the Night Sky Program are advised to come prepared with binoculars, water (which is also for sale at the cabin), flashlights, blankets and coats. Call (970) 883-5359 (9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

daily) for reservations. CRIA offers a free, familyfriendly Vision of Chimney Rock program on Sunday, Aug. 18. This is a kid-friendly, typically hands-on program limited to a small group, so reservations are required. This does not replace the regular walking tours, but expands on the many topics covered on a tour. This monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s topic will be, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s For Dinner at Chimney Rock.â&#x20AC;? The program is suitable for those with limited time and people who cannot do the walking tour, especially older adults and young children, those with physical limitations, and those who work during the week. Reserve your spot by calling the site. Walk-ins will be accommodated on a first-come first-served basis, up to 25 people. On Tuesday, Aug. 20, view the full moon against the backdrop of the Great House Pueblo at the top of Chimney Rock Mesa. The nearly 360-degree view of the mountainstudded horizon provides the dramatic celestial observatory valued so highly by the Ancient Puebloans. A speaker tells the story of the people and their likely relationship with the moon, sun and stars. Watch the full moon rise over the eastern mountain peaks to the music of a Native American flute. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be torn between looking west to see the spectacular sunset or focusing on the eastern mountain range to see the first sliver of moon. Volunteers light the trail down from the

mesa top after the program. The program lasts approximately four hours, including check-in, driving to the mesa top and walking to the site. The hike to the Great House Pueblo is short but moderately strenuous and not appropriate for those with mobility impairment or children under 12 years old. Reservations are required. Tickets are $15 for this program designed for folks 12 years and older. Add $5 for an early tour of the lower area (Great Kiva Trail Loop), which starts at 4:30 p.m. All participants must be through the Colo. 151 gate by 5:45 p.m. and the program begins at 6:30. Bring flashlights, water (also for sale at the cabin), cushions, and blankets or coats. For tickets, call the visitor cabin at 883-5359, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily. After the Full Moon Program, guests will be given the opportunity view the surface of the moon with telescopes for an additional $5. Chimney Rock National Monument is located 17 miles west of Pagosa Springs on U.S. 160 and three miles south on Colo. 151. Turn right at the gate and follow the road one half mile to the cabin registration area where the tours begin. No reservations are needed for the tours. All programs are sponsored by Chimney Rock Interpretive Assn., Inc., in partnership with the USDA Forest Service and the San Juan National Forest. Visit the website at www.chimneyrockco.org.

Chris Mountain Road temporarily closed for tree cutting and removal By Ann Bond Special to The SUN

The Chris Mountain Road (Forest Road 681) has been closed to public entry from its junction with Forest Road 628 to provide for public safety during the cutting and removal of trees in the area. The timber project is part of the Chris Mountain Stewardship Contract, which will result in fuels reduction, forest restoration and improved forest health across approximately 580 acres of dense ponderosa pine stands. The road closure will remain in effect while trees are being cut, chipped, or when chipped material is being removed from units and down the Chris Mountain Road. The closure is needed due to the use of various kinds of heavy equipment, poor site visibility in and around piles of cut trees and the hazards associated with large-truck hauling of material off the site. The Forest Service will evaluate opportunities for opening the Chris Mountain Road during fall hunting seasons. For more information, contact Richard Mendoza, Pagosa Ranger District, 264-1525.

Native American flute music at Sunday Night Unplugged By Sally Neel Special to The PREVIEW

The ethereal sounds of the Native American flute will fill St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Episcopal Church this Sunday evening at 5 p.m. as local artist Charles Martinez offers his musical skills at Sunday Night Unplugged. Sunday Night Unplugged is a monthly meditation service offered to the public free of charge that combines music, readings, and silence to create a setting of beauty and serenity. St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, located at 225 S. Pagosa Blvd., welcomes all guests to come and enjoy this unique opportunity to meditate and enjoy beautiful musical offerings. Charles Martinez, a native of Pagosa Springs, is no stranger to those who have visited Chimney Rock for the full moon ceremonies. He brings the authentic sounds of the Native American spirituality to the ancient site, taking visitors back in time through the beauty of his haunting music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Native American flute is reminiscent of the sounds of nature,â&#x20AC;? says Fr. Doug Neel, rector

at St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Charles plays with sensitivity and grace, evoking the spirit of God and bringing to mind the traditions of Native Americans who continue to hold creation in such reverence. He inspires us to renew our own commitment to the beauty God has provided for our pleasure, our sustenance, and care.â&#x20AC;? Sunday Night Unplugged begins at 5 p.m. with quiet meditation and music. All are welcome to participate in this unique and beautiful service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have guests from every spiritual background and walk of life,â&#x20AC;? says Fr. Neel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many who attend are visitors to our town, others attend the service each month. We welcome everyone and hope they feel comfortable and at peace among us.â&#x20AC;?

The Holy Rollers return to Pagosa Special to The PREVIEW

The Holy Rollers have been making Pagosa a regular stop on their summer tour schedule since 2006. The band, made up of Catholics and Protestants, focuses on praise and worship Music, which makes their concert more a worship service than a concert. Hundreds of Pagosans have come to worship at John Paul II Church or at IHM Church. The Holy Rollers, formed in 2004, provide praise and worship concerts to all Christian faiths. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beginnings are rooted in Father Donald P. Malinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempt to help a â&#x20AC;&#x153;parish praise bandâ&#x20AC;? break out of a vapid, pseudo-solemn interpretation of praise and worship music. Father Don introduced his philosophy of letting the spirit and style of each song drive the musicians, rather than having the musicians try to tame dynamic music to fit some kind of devotional or holy style which took the heart out of the songs being sung. This, he said, would leave only an empty shell to which no one could relate and which would not inspire anybody to any kind of whole-person response to the message. So, he invited some of the musicians to come to his garage, where he had a rudimentary soundboard and they did â&#x20AC;&#x153;garage bandâ&#x20AC;? rock and roll versions of some of the church songs. Four of the songs worked, but then came the challenge: They

a Bachelor of Music Education degree and a Master of Music degree, both with high honors. Since that time, she has received Kodaly Certification from the University of Texas at Dallas studying with Lois Choksy and certification in movement and folk dance from the Highscope Institute in Clinton, Mich., under the direction of Phyllis Weikart. Parker has served as elementary vice-president of the Texas Music Educators Association and elementary vice-president of the Texas Choral Directors Association. Since moving to Pagosa Springs, she has been active in the Pagosa Springs Community Choir, serving on their board of directors, and has served as accompanist for Curtains Up Pagosa! productions of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man of La Manchaâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pippin.â&#x20AC;? She is also a member of the St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Episcopal Church choir. To register for the coaching classes or to schedule an audition time for the Pagosa Springs Girls Choir, call Linda Parker at 264-1434.

were selected as the band for the February Deanery Youth Day four months later, as well as in May to raise funds for World Youth Day in Cologne. Their first CD â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rollâ&#x20AC;? is a live concert recording from that first World Youth Day concert. Father Malin comes from a musical family. He began studying guitar at age 8, then continued through college. At age 13, while studying classical guitar, he was preparing a concerto to perform with Leonard Bernsteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Young Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Concertsâ&#x20AC;? series, which would use a youth orchestra in Los Angeles. Before the concert was ready, Bernstein had a heart attack, and the concert was cancelled. Father Malin has many music degrees: a B.F.A. in music from Loyola Marymount University in classical guitar and choral conducting; an M.F.A. in music history with an emphasis in Gregorian chant; and postgraduate hours in music from Colorado University in Boulder. He also has a M.Div. and was ordained as a priest in 2003 at the age of 47. Prior to becoming a priest, he spent 12 years in part-time church ministry, and 13 years of full-time church ministry as a musician, liturgist, catechist and youth minister. He began playing guitar publicly at age 9, and has played professionally since 1976. In the past, he played guitar, bass, banjo, slide guitar, lute and mandolin in a number of bands, duos and trios, stage shows, rock, country, jazz, big band, blues and folk bands. Additionally, he was a music instructor and music department head at Trinidad State Junior College, where he taught music theory, choir, show choir, classical guitar and voice, and produced one opera. Father Don began leading worship in charismatic prayer groups in 1972 when he was baptized in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Rollers Band has six

members: Lloyd Garduno, Elizabeth Forest, Randy Stanko, Sue Warren, Ellen Engebretsen and Father Don. Lloyd Garduno plays lead guitar and came to the band through playing at Life Teen Masses. His daughter, Missy, was one of the original members of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Holy Rollersâ&#x20AC;? before going to college. Lloyd has played lead guitar in club bands for most of his adult life. He has a broad diversity of styles, but prefers the blues. In her 20s, Elizabeth Forest started playing bass in rock-n-roll bands in Denver. Later, she put the bass and the music away and moved onto other things. Sixteen years later, Father Don made her an offer she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t refuse. After blowing the dust off her favorite bass and relearning what she once knew about music, she is now reliving her dream of playing in a rock band. The dream is even better today, because she is now playing for God. Randy Stanko, the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drummer, is an Assembly of God minister, a marriage and family therapist, and a biker. Father Don invited Randy to be part of the band when he and Randy worked together counseling some families. Randy has worshiped through music since his first vocal solo in church in 1970, and has been playing drums since 1998. Sue Warren has been the music and liturgy director at St. Mary Parish in Montrose, Colo., since 2001. She has been a musician most of her life, singing and leading worship. Baptized a Methodist, she converted to Catholicism before marrying her husband, Chris. They have three children (including twins) and their daughter, Sarah, earned a degree in music in 2005. Ellen Engebretsen hails from Janesville, Wisc., where she was a parish musician, worked in liturgy, and participated in monthly Taize

You can purchase a hamburger and other fixins’ before the Mass at 6:30 and desserts at intermission. Beverages will be provided. This year’s concert will be for the benefit of the Catholic Food Bank, which like many others has had a harder and harder time in getting grants to meet the needs of the locals who have been hurt by the recession and the economic downturn in our town. Although things are beginning to turn around, the food bank has been hard hit with price increases for food, and the increase of demand from 14-16 boxes a week to well over 50. Coming to the concert and the preceding hamburger feed (dinner) provides Pagosans with an opportunity to help the region’s poor.

Thingamajig Theatre Company enters the home stretch of their critically acclaimed summer run at the Pagosa Center for the Arts with the closing of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Full Montyâ&#x20AC;? tonight at 7 p.m. and the final weekend of the summer favorite â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monty Pythonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spamalotâ&#x20AC;? running Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and closing Sunday at 2 p.m. But, in their place comes another Colorado premiere, right here in Pagosa Springs: the Broadway favorite and Tony Award nominated play, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good People,â&#x20AC;? by David Lindsay-Abaire. Directed by John Ashton (Henry Award winner for Lifetime Achievement in Theatre) and starring a cast of regional and national actors, Thingamajig adds some star power to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good People.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had such an amazing run this summer with Spamalot and Monty.

Enter John Ashton, director and longtime theatre staple in Denver. Ashton has been producing, directing and starring in theatrical hits for over 30 years. Along the way heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performed in film work too, most recently appearing on AMCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hit series â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breaking Bad.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;John brings so many intangibles to the table,â&#x20AC;? said Moore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t evoke the kind of response from actors sometimes

Kristen Adele, who portrays Kate in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good People,â&#x20AC;? recently appeared in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blue Bloodsâ&#x20AC;? with Tom Selleck and starred in the smash-hit â&#x20AC;&#x153;Orange is the New Black.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kristen is a true, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I-knew-herwhenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; actor,â&#x20AC;? said Moore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both Laura and I have been friends with Kristen for years and her star is rising fast. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re incredibly fortunate that she was available and of course eager to feature her in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Good Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for our production.â&#x20AC;? And speaking of producing, Thingamajig has spread its wings a bit with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good People,â&#x20AC;? choosing to co-produce the play with award -winning Denver producers Abster Productions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Abster hit the ground running with its premiere of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;August: Osage Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; last year at the Dairy Center. They were nominated for and won multiple Henry Awards for their incredible production. I knew right away that the energy and commitment they bring to producing premiere works was the kind of partnership Thingamajig, an emerging leader in new works ourselves, wants to be associated with,â&#x20AC;? said Moore. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss these final three terrific shows. Great things are happening in Pagosa right now in the arts and you can see great theater at PSCA over the next four weekends.

Darrell Scott is one of the most proliďŹ c and talented songwriters of modern Americana and alt-country music, and judging by the volume of awards he has amassed during his career, it is clear to those in the music industry as well.

Special to The PREVIEW

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not quite sure where this summer has gone, but if you know, could you please tell me? Believe it or not, we are just three weeks away from the start of the 18th annual Four Corners Folk Festival, taking place Aug. 30-Sept. 1 on Reservoir Hill in downtown Pagosa Springs. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing lineup of musicians includes the legendary John Hiatt and the Combo, Natalie MacMaster, The Wood Brothers, Elephant Revival, Jimmy LaFave, Slaid Cleaves, Aoife Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donovan Band, Sarah Siskind and Travis Book, John Fullbright, New Country Rehab, Roseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pawn Shop, Halden Wofford and the Hi-Beams, The Lone Bellow, The Giving Tree Band and this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two featured artists, Darrell Scott and Baskery. An exciting addition to the music this year is the Preview in the Park concert, happening on Thursday, Aug. 29, at 5 p.m. in Town Park. Admission is free, and two festival bands â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Halden Wof-

ford and the Hi-Beams and New Country Rehab â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will entertain on the gazebo stage until 8 p.m. that evening. The event will be weather dependent, so if rain is forecast, it will be cancelled. The Chamber of Commerce will serve up food, and beer and wine will be available for purchase. On Friday, the festivities will move up to Reservoir Hill when the main stage music gets underway. Veteran festival performer Darrell Scott was baptized in country music â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the old country music of cheating, drinking, working, longing- pre-Garth, prevideo, pre-urban-cowboy country music â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the voice of working people, people of the land. Darrellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own people came from Kentucky: poor tobacco farmers and Harlan County coal miners, descendants of Scots and Irish who brought their music with them. Darrellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest album, Long Ride Home, is country music how he remembers it from his childhood, with some of the players that made the very music that was both lifting and breaking his n See Festival on next page

heart as a kid. Darrell finds that, while the country music industry has changed, country and working people have not changed so much; they still love real country music when they hear it. Darrell is a fixture at FolkWest festivals, headlining Pagosa Folk ‘N Bluegrass once and appearing numerous times in the Four Corners Folk Festival lineup with his own band, with Tim O’Brien and as part of the Sam Bush Band way back in 2001. It has long been clear to us that Darrell Scott is one of the most prolific and talented songwriters of modern Americana and alt-country music, and judging by the volume of awards he has amassed during his career, it is clear to those in the music industry as well. Here are just a few highlights: Independent Music Award Best Country Album of 2011 — “A Crooked Road;” 2011 Grammy Nomination for Best Country Instrumental Performance — “Willow Creek;” International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Nomination — 2010 Recorded Event of the Year — “Bleeding for a Little Peace of Mind” with Blue Highway; American Songwriter Top 25 Songs from the last 25 Years — No. 6: “It’s A Great Day To Be Alive” (2009); Americana Award for 2007 Song of the Year — “Hank William’s Ghost;” Independent Music Award for 2005 Album of the Year — Theatre of the Unheard; Grammy Nomination for Best Country Song 2003 — “Long Time Gone” (recorded by the Dixie Chicks); Rolling Stone Magazine 2003 Critics Top Albums — “Theatre of the Unheard;” IBMA Song of the Year Nominee — 2002, 2003; ASCAP’s 2002 Songwriter of the Year; Grammy Nomination for Best Country Instrumental Performance 2001 — “The Second Mouse” (with Tim O’Brien); NSAI 2001 Songwriter of the Year While no one performs Darrell’s songs as well as Darrell, other artists have recorded them over the years with highly successful outcomes, among them the Dixie Chicks, Keb’ Mo’, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Guy Clark, Kathy Mattea; Brad Paisley, Martina McBride, Jonell Mosser, Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt, Sara Evans, Suzy Bogguss, Patty Loveless, Darryl Worley and Trace Adkins. After a summer spent touring as part of Robert Plant’s Band of Joy in 2012, Darrell and his band are back on the road this year and will close Friday’s main stage show at the Four Corners Folk Festival, with a 7 p.m. set. Baskery is a band built on what three people can do together. The music is not to be branded as country or bluegrass

The three sisters of Baskery can’t recall when or why they started playing, it has always just been there, as an occupation, as a distraction and mostly, as a conviction. This powerful trio plays the Four Corners Folk Festival this year — on Reservoir Hill on Saturday, Aug. 31, at 4 p.m. and on the late night stage on Friday, Aug. 30, at 10:15 p.m.

just from looking at the instruments — Baskery is not bound by any genre and its members want to keep it that way. The three sisters of Baskery can’t recall when or why they started playing, it has always just been there, as an occupation, as a distraction and mostly, as a conviction, “Performing live has become the most natural thing to us.” It’s all there in their live act, because it is real. In their late teens, the sisters joined forces with their dad, who for decades was a one-man-band playing old blues and country songs at bars and clubs for a living. They describe their introduction to the music business in a quite unglamorous way, “We played cover songs for drunken people, but we never played songs we didn’t like just to please the crowd. Throwing ourselves out there was probably the best

education we could have gotten; it gave us a collective backbone.” Along with the love for roots music and Americana came the urge to break the rules of this traditional music. Baskery is all about turning the music on its head, blending the straightforwardness of punk with the subtlety of singer/songwriting. The band has been compared to everything from Abba to Led Zeppelin and Motörhead. Baskery has released two full length albums and in 2011 they received the Stim Scholarship for their songwriting skills. Their debut album “Fall Among Thieves” (2008) was recorded the old-school way — completely live in the studio — and it was all about finding that one take and banning any overdubs. The 10 songs on “New Friends” (2011) were written and partly recorded

Creative Pagosa: Roberto Garcia Jr. 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 MAKERS in Pagosa, the PACP will profile its members, giving readers of The PREVIEW a sense of the depth and breadth of the creative community. This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MAKER is Roberto Garcia.

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be surprised if you knew how many good sounding motel rooms there are out there.â&#x20AC;? Both albums were acknowledged and well received by the music press all over Europe. The band recently released their third full length album, teaming up with Long Beach-based producer Matt Wignall in Berlin in the hope of together finding the right sounds and squeezing out every last drop of the potential held in the new songs. Baskery is an extraordinary live act and the band has taken on some of the most prestigious stages in the world. The live show is high octane and energetic, yet dynamic and personal. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a buzz going on around this trio from Stockholm. 2013 will again find the sisters touring across the globe. The

A redheaded, 90-year-old grandmother I shouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen her coming. I shouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known I was about to blow sky high. When you put a cellphone into the hands of a 90-year-old grandmother, it is like putting a Porsche into the hands of a 16-year-old. It gives them the license to squeal their wheels, conquer their world, and the power to say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve arrived.â&#x20AC;? Well, I also arrived early at my watercolor class. I have a method of setting up, getting ready to dazzle the guests at the Wyndham Resorts with my 45 years of art experience and knowledge. The students arrived early and found a place where they would create a beautiful watercolor. It was their moment to discover the world of art in Betty Sladeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watercolor class. Yes, it would be a moment of greatness for everyone. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly happen that way. I noticed a little, redheaded lady playing with her phone. I know how it feels to conquer technology in your later years: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like standing on a mountaintop and shouting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got. I even know how to use it.â&#x20AC;? Ten minutes before the class began, grandma received a phone call. I thought it would be quick. After all, these students paid to learn how to paint. The call went on and on. The students were looking at me, at her, then back at me. I introduced myself over the muffled voice coming from the phone, and then had the students introduce themselves and tell a little about their art experience and where they were from. Grandma was still talking on the phone. I looked at the clock. It was 8:55. We still had a few minutes before we started. I sent the list

Artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lane Betty Slade around for them to sign in. I did all the preliminaries. Grandma was still talking. When the clock struck 9 a.m., I said to her, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please take your call outside.â&#x20AC;? She held up her hand and shook her head. I said it again, only with more authority, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to take your call outside.â&#x20AC;? She shook her head again and put her hand over her eyes. Remember, the rest of the class was looking to me to do something. Their eyes were going back and forth from me to her. They were waiting, patiently. I needed to do something to save the day. I looked at her niece, who came with her. She looked the other way. Finally, grandma put down her phone and I said very stoutly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone, please turn off your phones. It is not right for the other students when your phone rings. It disturbs the class. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s courtesy.â&#x20AC;? She said with entitlement, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a very important phone call, I needed to take it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disturbing to the class.â&#x20AC;? Then she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was talking to the people at the Arlington Cemetery. They are going to handle my dead husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ashes.â&#x20AC;? I looked at her sternly. She wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to pull that card on me. I said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rude to talk in front of people and keep every-

one waiting.â&#x20AC;? The class members gulped and softened with a quiet, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, how sad.â&#x20AC;? They had switched allegiance to her side. But, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waiver. I said to her, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please turn off your phone.â&#x20AC;? Finally, we all pulled ourselves together and continued, creating beautiful watercolors. That evening, Al and I met with our children for pizza. One of our daughters said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mother, tell them about the 90-year-old woman at your painting class.â&#x20AC;? I was still a little upset about it all, but I put on my storytelling hat, gave a slight laugh and began telling about my experience that morning. My other daughter said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mother, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong with you. You didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to use that tone. You could have softened it. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been angry lately, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve not known you to be this way.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t my fault. It was her fault. She was using her dead husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ashes to be rude.â&#x20AC;? My son-in-law jumped into the conversation and took my side. He told of his woe about a phone call earlier that day during a meeting. He understood.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is little that can withstand a man who can conquer himself.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Louis XIV, 1638-1715, known as Louis the Great, who became king of France at the tender age of 5. Now that you have a giant on your side, nothing is impossible. Staying with the giant who will definitely move you forward will take courage and, at the same time, will connect you to who you really are and empower you. Once you get momentum going in your life, i.e. changes taking place and progress is obvious, it may scare the bejesus out of you. (Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an Irish term brought to the South, at least thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I learned it.) This will be the ultimate comfort zone test. If your life is moving and changing faster

than you can keep up with, you may wish to put the skids on it or at least slow it down. Question: Why would you want to interfere with movement in a positive direction? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s percolate on that one a while and look at some possible resistances or thoughts that keep momentum in check. These all fall under the category of that thing we are trying to master â&#x20AC;Ś attitude.

1. Avoiding risks to stay with what we know even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s painful. 2. Settling for less. 3. Could if he/she would be different. 4. I try to change â&#x20AC;Ś but. 5.

One thing your giant will do is make you keenly aware of even slight changes in attitude. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been easy to recognize poor attitude in others, but we can justify and rationalize our own day in and day out until we decide to wad those old ways up and throw them away.

experiences getting outside my comfort zone. Each time I stepped outside that zone, it has been scary but never painful, and once I accomplished what I thought was scary, I realized the scary was all in my mind. In other words, as King Louis XIV suggested, I had not conquered myself. (I believe this to be a lifelong challenge.) Looking back over many years, for me, the scary came from the fear that nothing would ever change, and of course nothing can change if we continue doing the same things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always done. I know people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to change, who are happy as long as there is a roof over their heads and a big screen TV in the bedroom. They have much to offer and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know it. This is similar to the artist who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t share his/her work with the world. Their own lack of confidence stops the flow of blessings and inspiration to those who might see their art. Can you measure the reward each time you step outside your comfort zone? Can you put a monetary value on personal transformation? Can you buy the feeling you get when you accomplish something you thought impossible? Of course not, it is priceless. When we look at our lives as changeable, movable and not static, we discover value we never saw before. Hopefully you have experienced relationships that you would call priceless. (Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a toast to the latest one with your

 

Edgar or Ethel.) We tend to put value on others more than ourselves, but in successful Nutsville, we are valuing ourselves, our transformation, health and happiness above all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selfish,â&#x20AC;? you may say, but our world will not shine until we offer it 100 percent of who we are. Those we love most will only benefit from this selfishness. If you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t healthy or happy, everyone around you lives a compromised life. The purpose of life is doing what brings us tremendous joy. We serve the world when we are doing what makes us happy. There are many philosophies on the subject of selfishness, and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the space to go into them all, but I know from experience that once I get my attitude in line, my thoughts then can turn into decided action that is functional, real and constructive. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m building a life, my life, and only I can do that, unless, of course, I yield decisions (that affect me) to another person. Speaking of this, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always heard and chuckled at the saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aging is not for sissies.â&#x20AC;? In a few months Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be 65, and suddenly the government wants to make decisions for me in the form of Medicare and even how much I can and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t earn after the age of 65, and my attorney wants me to appoint a fiduciary to make decisions for me â&#x20AC;&#x153;should that be necessary.â&#x20AC;? Suddenly, just because I am reaching a certain age, things are getting out of hand. Then, I look in the mirror and realize someone or

Simple and healthy ways to boost your energy levels As a day wears on, many men and women find their energy levels steadily decreasing. Some resort to a cup of coffee, while others prefer a sugary snack to get more pep. Such solutions are not always healthy and rarely provide more than a temporary jolt of energy. So what are men and women to do when the inevitable postlunch doldrums rear their ugly heads? Oftentimes the best way to remedy a dip in energy levels is to prevent it in the first place. There are several simple and healthy ways to boost your energy levels so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find yourself falling flat in the afternoon. â&#x20AC;˘ Drink water throughout the day. Water is a versatile beverage that serves many purposes, not the least of which is its ability to make a positive impact on your energy levels. When the body does not get enough water, it can

send a variety of signals that are easily misread. The symptoms of thirst or dehydration can easily be confused for hunger, which may cause you to eat more during the day, and that food can make you feel sluggish as the day progresses. Even slight dehydration can make you feel fatigued. If drinking water isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a part of your daily routine and you find yourself feeling fatigued on a regular basis, start drinking water and your energy levels will likely increase. Water is an especially good way to boost your energy levels thanks to its availability and affordability. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t skip meals. Skipping meals is robbing your body of the fuel it needs to get through the day. Skipping breakfast is especially harmful, as you will be starting the day off essentially on a fast and your energy levels n See Energy on next page

something has absconded with my collagen, and I am helpless in the face of gravity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aging is not for sissiesâ&#x20AC;? is putting it mildly! I suggest you make getting outside your comfort zone a daily practice so, when you hit the big 65, all the changes wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scare the bejesus out of you! This week, make every effort to embrace multiple changes, forward momentum and feeling loss of control. Once we live outside

our comfort zones, we realize we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be rich, beautiful, young or smart to have adventures or a life beyond our dreams. Grab your giantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand and say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He who conquers others is strong; he who conquers himself is mighty.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lao Tzu, ancient Chinese philosopher Join me next time for The Zen Nut! sueellen.haning@gmail.com

Preparations nearly complete for Shamrock Festival By Sally Neel Special to The PREVIEW

The excitement is building as parishioners of St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Episcopal Church prepare for the upcoming annual Shamrock Festival, a day filled to the brim with community fun, food and shopping bargains. The festival takes place under

a giant tent located behind the church parking lot at 225 S. Pagosa Blvd., beginning at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 17. Proceeds from the event are designated by the church for community outreach, allowing the church to offer assistance to local residents in need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Shamrock Festival was the first church activity in which my family and I participated upon

our arrival in Pagosa Springs five years ago,â&#x20AC;? says Fr. Doug Neel, rector of St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Episcopal Church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were so impressed with the amount of commitment and energy that the parishioners gave towards hosting this large festival. Even more impressive was the spirit of joy among them as they worked together to make n See Shamrock on next page

will suffer as a result. A healthy breakfast that includes whole grain cereals or breads as well as some fruit and lean protein is a great way to start the day off energized. And no matter how busy you are during the day, be sure to eat a healthy lunch, ideally one that includes some protein. Protein is important because it takes the body longer to break down protein than it does carbohydrates, giving you an energy source that lasts longer than a lunch without any protein. â&#x20AC;˘ Exercise. Fatigue can be a byproduct of a body thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overworked but also a side effect of a body that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being worked enough. Daily exercise

will increase your energy levels, even if the exercise is minimal. Research conducted at The California State University found that even a brisk 10-minute walk increased energy levels for as much as two hours. If your energy levels tend to start waning in the afternoon, consider a short, midafternoon jaunt. The dividends such a walk pays regarding your energy levels may just last until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to call it a day. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut too many calories. Men and women fighting fatigue may feel as though their weight is the main culprit behind that lethargy. Though being overweight or obese can have a negative impact on energy levels, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important men and women

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut too many calories from their diets when attempting to lose weight. Doing so may slow your metabolism, which can cause feelings of fatigue. If you are overweight or obese, you may very well need to cut calories, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do so at the expense of your energy levels. Many men and women find themselves battling fatigue come the mid- to late-afternoon. Though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to pour yourself another cup of coffee or lean on an energy drink once the post-lunch listlessness rears its ugly head, there are several alternatives to such remedies that can be more effective at boosting your energy levels over the long haul.

the day a success. Each year, the parish family has stepped up to the task to offer a truly fun day for the enjoyment of our community and to help provide a significant outreach fund for our church to use throughout the year.â&#x20AC;? The day begins at 8 a.m. with a giant yard sale under the tent, a one-stop-shopping opportunity for those who enjoy cruising the neighborhoods for yard sale bargains. At the same time, in the church library, a fabulous used book sale will offer paperback books on sale for only 25 cents each and hardbacks for a dollar. Raffle tickets for the handmade quilt and fly fishing package will also be on sale as long as tickets last. At the conclusion of the yard sale, the tent will be transformed into an outdoor bistro for a lasagna dinner, served at 6 p.m. Raffle winners will be announced at the dinner (you need not be present to win). Cocktails and hors dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeuvres will be served beginning at 4 p.m. while shoppers enjoy browsing the elegant silent auction in the

church. Women of the church first gathered in March with their sewing machines and supplies to begin work on a beautiful handmade queen-size bed comforter (it will also cover a king size bed), and matching pillows. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quilt includes shades of blue, beige and rust and will be a beautiful decorative addition in the home of the lucky winner. The women named this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quilt, â&#x20AC;&#x153;San Juan Streams,â&#x20AC;? because the colors remind them of the beautiful flowing waters of the San Juan Mountains. Quilt raffle tickets are sold individually for $1, six for $5, or in packets of 12 tickets for $10. Tickets are now on sale and can purchased (while they last) up until the drawing at the festival dinner under the tent. The quilt raffle alone brings in $5,000 each year to assist local outreach. Not to be outdone by the women of the church, the men of St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s have put together a raffle that fly fishing aficionados are clamoring to win; a handmade R.L.

Winston 4 wt./4 pc. flyrod and case, a Lamson Konic reel, along with fly fishing gear and supplies, topped off by a guided fishing expedition to choice waters. Tickets are $20 each, with only 300 being sold. The Shamrock Festival schedule includes: â&#x20AC;˘ 8 a.m.â&#x20AC;&#x201C;noon: yard sale under the giant tent behind the church. â&#x20AC;˘ 4â&#x20AC;&#x201C;6 p.m.: cocktails and hors dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeuvres. â&#x20AC;˘ 4:30 p.m.: silent auction. â&#x20AC;˘ 6 p.m.: Homemade lasagna dinner (vegetarian included) under the tent, $20.

This building still standing in the valley of am west branch of the upper Navajo River was the site of an 1890sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gold rush to that area promoted by a Col. Broad. Serious gold was never found there, but a search of Archuleta County Courthouse records reveals a ledger or more full of claims ďŹ led during that period of time.

The early days in the Chromo area Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been talking about the earliest settlements in Pagosa Country. I tend to include the Summitville, Dulce, Lumberton and Tierra Amarilla areas as part of Pagosa Country in my thoughts when considering early settlement, because the settlement of all of those areas is tied together. Right now, however, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m focusing on land that later became part of Archuleta County when the

Pagosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Past John M. Motter county incorporated in 1885. For the last two weeks, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written about settlement at the Piedra River crossing and west-

The earliest settlements all have one thing in common â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they were along established roadways entering the county. The Piedra/Yellow Jacket area was along the stage road between Pagosa Springs and Animas City, later to become Durango.

A simple taste of Mexico Among fans of international cuisine, Mexican food has a fervent following. Delicious and flavorful, Mexican cuisine has established itself as a favorite among foodies and families alike. But in addition to its flavor, Mexican cuisine is beloved because it’s relatively easy to prepare. Those who want to bring a taste of Mexico into their kitchens without spending a lot of time doing so should consider the following recipe for Enchilada Casserole from Kelley Cleary Coffeen’s “200 Easy Mexican Recipes” (Robert Rose).

Enchilada Casserole Serves 6 24 6-inch corn tortillas, warmed 3 cups Green Enchilada Sauce (see below) 2 cups diced cooked chicken 3 cups shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese 1 onion, diced 1 cup shredded lettuce 1/2 cup sliced black olives 1 tomato, seeded and diced 1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. 2. Place 6 tortillas in the bottom of a 13- by 9-inch glass baking dish, overlapping as necessary. Top with 1 cup of the sauce, spreading to the outer edges of tortillas. Top with half of the chicken and 1 cup of the cheese, spreading to the outer edges of the tortillas. Garnish with one-third of the onion. Layer 6 more tortillas, sauce,

the remaining chicken, and half each of the remaining cheese and onion. Top with 6 remaining tortillas and remaining sauce, cheese and onion. 3. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Let stand for 5 to 8 minutes. Cut into 6 equal squares and serve on individual plates. Garnish with lettuce, olives and tomatoes.

Green Enchilada Sauce Makes 2 cups 1 tomato, seeded and diced 1 1/2 cups chopped roasted green chile peppers 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 cup chicken broth 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/4 cup all-purpose flour Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 1. In a large skillet, combine tomato, chiles, garlic, and broth and bring to a boil over mediumhigh heat. Reduce heat and bring to a gentle boil. Boil until vegetables are tender, 6 to 8 minutes. 2. In a small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Gradually stir in flour, creating a roux (a thick paste). Remove from heat. 3. Gradually stir roux into chile sauce over medium heat, whisking until smooth and thick, 6 to 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately or let cool to room temperature. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

The Chromo area settlements were along a major southern entrance to the county. An old road connected Pagosa Country with Tierra Amarilla, Abiquiu, Espanola, Santa Fe and the rest of the Territory of New Mexico. Another route entering Pagosa Country through the Chromo area came by way of Cumbres Pass and the San Louis Valley. Cumbres Pass opened circa 1877, long before the 1915 opening of Wolf Creek Pass. Barzillai Price and a relative, George Weisel, were the first settlers in the Chromo area. In fact, that settlement was first known as “Price,” and that was the name of its first post office, said to have been located about one-half mile east of the present post office. Price and Weisel came by wagon train from Nebraska to Pagosa Springs, probably by way of Cumbres Pass. After visiting Pagosa Springs and the fledgling Ignacio Indian Agency, Price and family homesteaded along the Navajo near Col. Broad’s toll gate. The location was a few miles east of

present Chromo where a bridge called Price Bridge remains to this day. The year was 1879. Broad, who lived in Chama, promised Price a mower, rake and twenty dollars a ton for hay if Price would settle on the Navajo and take care of traffic there. Army Engineer Lieutenant Ruffner who was stationed at Fort Garland in the San Luis Valley and surveyed the military site of Pagosa Springs and most of the passes across the Southern San Juan Mountains, spent a night with the Prices and told 70-yearold Will Price “many good fishing and hunting stories.” Ruffner had been many years with the Army in New Mexico and, by way of young Will, is probably the source of the story that Kit Carson had built a cabin along the Navajo while beaver trapping in the area.

Entertain with the environment in mind Living an eco-friendly lifestyle is a goal for many people. Whereas little thought was given to protecting the environment in the past, nowadays men, women and children alike recognize the impact their behavior has on the immediate and long-term future of the planet. Though some eco-friendly men and women may feel as if they have exhausted the ways in which they can live a more environmentally conscious lifestyle, there are always new ways to consider to protect the environment in everything you do. For example, hosting a party for family and friends can be a great opportunity to have some eco-friendly fun. The following are a few ways party hosts can entertain with the environment in mind. â&#x20AC;˘ Serve organic foods and beverages. One of the easier ways to turn a party into an eco-friendly affair is to serve organic foods and beverages. Visit your local farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market for fresh and locally grown organic foods. Organic foods are healthier for the environment and may even be healthier for your guests as well, while locally produced products have a much smaller carbon footprint than products imported from afar. When choosing beverages, opt for organic wines, teas and juices instead of more traditional and less eco-friendly options. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go disposable. Disposable place settings and utensils might be more convenient when hosting a large gathering, but such products are unnecessarily wasteful, especially if they are not made from recycled materials. When hosting, use your own reusable dinnerware. It might not be quite as convenient as dispos-

able products, but such dinnerware is more eco-friendly, especially if you wash the dirty dishes in the dishwasher rather than hand washing them after the party. The latter cleaning method is more laborious for you, and it even wastes more water. â&#x20AC;˘ Opt for e-vites instead of traditional invitations. Many people, even those not consciously trying to be more eco-friendly, have embraced the convenience of e-vites when inviting friends and family to a party. But e-vites are as eco-friendly as they are convenient, saving the paper used for the invitations and the envelopes theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sent in as well as the fuel it takes for the postal service to deliver each invitation. If you must use traditional paper invitations, choose invitations made from recycled or sustainable materials. â&#x20AC;˘ Location, location, location! Location is everything in real estate, and the same might just be true when hosting an eco-friendly party. When choosing a location for your next gettogether, find one thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convenient to everyone who plans to attend. This reduces the heavy toll that traveling can take on the environment, and your guests and you will be happy that no one had to travel far and wide to make an appearance. If you plan to have your party at a venue, look for a facility thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certified as ecofriendly. Such facilities might have been constructed predominantly with eco-friendly materials or they may employ more efficient electronics throughout the building in an effort to reduce the venueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carbon footprint. â&#x20AC;˘ Take the party outdoors. Another way to entertain with the environment in mind is to take your party

Humane Society Thrift Store, the animal shelter, Higher Grounds Coffee, Pagosa Feed and Nursery, and the Chamber of Commerce. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Please plan to attend one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year and one that benefits a great cause â&#x20AC;&#x201D; providing a safe haven for homeless dogs and cats until adoptive homes can be found, and temporary shelter for lost animals until they can be reunited with

Here’s an idea for your next holiday treat Six things I’d rather not do. 1. Have my gums scraped. 2. Stumble into a nest of Brown Recluse spiders. 3. Eat a razor blade. 4. Spend a week in a locked bank vault with Rush Limbaugh and half a pack of Fig Newtons. 5. Listen to an album of country favorites recorded by The Kingston Trio. 6. Make a Buche de Noel. I prefer options one through five to the sixth option on the list. I did it once. Never again. What is a Buche de Noel? you ask. It is something only the French, smug behind the thin veneer of continental rationalism, snug in the PJs of faded colonial glory, could conceive. And take seriously. It is, in short, a cake. A Christmas Log. The infernal thing is a clumsily crafted facsimile of a hunk of rotten tree branch, replete with fungi. Very French. My nightmare featuring this monstrosity occurred many years ago, and I suggest it here so that you, this season, can sample the misery I once experienced. It’s not hard to guess who came up with the idea of creating a Buche de Noel. Since Dr. Mengele was dead, it had to be my wife. “Let’s make a Buche de Noel,” said Kathy, her tone of voice gilded with the studied, brittle enthusiasm of a Francophile. She repeated her suggestion in French, buttressing the sentence with a frivolous hand gesture. Multilingual folks can be very tedious. I knew instantly it was a bad idea: This is something you don’t want to attempt if you have a small kitchen, a poor oven and limited counter space. And a bad attitude. Guess what? Our kitchen at the time was the size of an airplane rest room; the oven was made in Poland, circa 1938, jury-rigged out of old tin cans and isinglass. We had counter space equal in surface area to a pocket atlas. Guess what else? I had a very bad attitude. “It’s such a lovely Christmas tradition. We need Christmas traditions,” said my bride. “Right now all we have is you sitting around in old sweatpants and a torn T-shirt, watching reruns of The Price is Right, making fun of Christmas trees and griping about spending money on gifts for all the relatives you don’t like. This Buche de Noel is a new idea.” Oh yeah, what a great idea for a Christmas tradition: laboring for hours in order to clog your arteries, choking down a cake that looks like rotten wood. The artery

Food for Thought Karl Isberg thing I appreciate; the French twist leaves a lot to be desired. After all, these are the same folks who sneer at me when I try to order in a Paris bistro. I agreed to the experiment. Under duress. It was not simple. First, you bake a génoise. Génoise is French for “crappy cake that’s more difficult to make than it’s worth.” In this case, the génoise is flavored with cocoa and baked thin, so it can be rolled like a jellyroll. The cake has a ton of egg in it so it’s extremely flexible: four eggs to a cup of cake flour. The batter is made with flour, salt, sugar, sifted together and mixed with beaten egg whites, egg yolks, more sugar, cocoa and vanilla. The batter is baked at 400 degrees, cooled and turned on to a towel that has been sprinkled with powdered sugar. The cake is then brushed with a syrup made of sugar, water and rum. I enjoyed this part of the process. I used a couple tablespoons of the rum in the syrup and drank a great deal of what remained in the bottle. The kiss of death, heart disease-wise, is the buttercream — the only desirable part of the dish. You need a ton of buttercream. Perhaps a ton and a half. Put about four cups of semisweet chocolate morsels in a food processor. Grind it up for a few seconds and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Put the stuff in a large bowl (a stand mixer bowl if you are a member of the privileged class). If you are poor, take out the electric mixer. Add a half-cup of boiling water and a half-cup of boiling coffee to the chocolate and mix for a while. Add about eight to ten tablespoons of sugar then temper and add sixteen to eighteen egg yolks and — here’s the critical part — loads of butter. Try at least two cups. If you want, pop in a teensy bit of vanilla and definitely put in about eight tablespoons of rum, if you haven’t finished off what was left in the bottle. Make even more of this stuff, if you want, there’s never enough. You spread a goodly layer of buttercream on the génoise then, using the towel, roll the cake up like a jellyroll. Your roll should be about 18 inches or so in length and fat as all get-out. Here’s where the French think they’re so tooty. Cut a chunk off the roll, maybe

four inches long, on the diagonal. Smear a wad of buttercream on top of the roll and glue the piece to it. Cut off another, smaller chunk and do the glue thing with it as well. The French think these lumps look like broken branches. They also think they won World War II. Baste the log and its stupidlooking clunky branches with rum syrup. Proceed to frost the whole n See Food on next page

Personally, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of anything to do with marzipan other than to use it as caulk, but in this case you manufacture clumsy imitations of mushrooms with the junk and put them next to the clumsy imitation of a rotten log with its clumsy imitation of tree bark. Just roll balls of the icky, stiff stuff for the mushroom caps, then roll cylinders for the stems.

Ruby Sisson named Woman in American History by DAR By Lynn Constan Special to The PREVIEW

The National Society, Daughters of the America Revolution, has recognized Ruby Sisson as a Woman in American History. This honor is awarded to women who made a contribution or a difference in their communities and can be conferred on both DAR members and non-members. Mrs. Sisson was chosen for this award by the local Sarah Platt Decker Chapter, NSDAR. Ruby Cales Sisson was a muchloved teacher in Archuleta County, first accepting a teaching position in Pagosa Springs in 1929. Except for one year during World War II, she taught continuously in Archuleta County until her retirement after the 1977-78 school year. From 1936 to 1948, she alternated between the Blanco School, a oneroom schoolhouse, and Pagosa Springs High School, where she taught math. She was an ardent conservationist. In 1978, the Colorado Education Association named her Colorado Teacher of the Year. Members of the Sarah Platt Decker Chapter met at the San

Juan Historical Society Museum on Aug. 2 to tour the museum and to present the Women in American History certificate. The museum has a fascinating collection of local artifacts including a display devoted to Mrs. Sisson and her teaching career. Museum Docent Ann Oldham, a local author and historian, accepted the certificate on behalf of the museum. The museum is located at 96 Pagosa St., on the banks of the San Juan River, and is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Sarah Platt Decker chapter, organized in 1917, is one of 42 chapters in Colorado. Meetings are held once a month from

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

Get Your Motor Runnin’

By Jean Strahlendorf Special to The PREVIEW

On Sunday, Aug. 11, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (PUFF) will discuss “Our Transcendentalist Heritage,” presented by Ruth R. Rinehart, MA, an Aspirant to UU ministry. The Transcendentalists were America’s first group of public intellectuals, and they changed the course of our religious heritage. Although they were rooted firmly in the Christian tradition, their views were heretical in the 19th century Unitarian Church. This sermon will focus on three Unitarian men in the mid-1800s: Ralph Waldo Emerson, Andrews Norton and Theodore Parker. What is the relevance today of the Transcendentalists’ free-thinking rejection of the established Unitarian church? Where does our theology intersect? This message will lift up Ralph Waldo Emerson and Theodore Parker’s mysticism and free thinking, which transcended their own time, with a compelling vision for us today. Rinehart is a member of the Jefferson Unitarian Church in Golden and has just completed her first year in seminary, at Iliff School of Theology in Denver. When not studying sacred texts or white privilege at Iliff, she can be found working to better the lives of children navigating the lives of divorce, by helping their parents to live a more peaceful life. She is the president and founder of Three Trusts, Inc., specializing in transformational practices to promote peaceful co-parenting. 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.
