Be smart in bear country

BoCC supports town on Wal-Mart issue

B" Lindse" Bright Staff Writer

“A wild-bear chace, did never see?” asks the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, in his poem “The Bear Hunt,” and continues musing, “Then hast thou lived in vain. When first my father settled here, ‘twas then the frontier line: the panther’s scream, filled night with fear and bears preyed on the swine.” Though not romanticizing over the Colorado landscape, the essence of what Lincoln writes can be ascribed to the current situation of bears in Pagosa Country. When Lincoln wrote this poem in the mid-19th century, it was an earlier time when the bear roamed free in the land, a time before people moved into prime bear country. Now, the fear of bears is often absent. Many people have moved into more of what was once a wilderness setting, whether for the views or the outdoor recreation. Around Pagosa Springs, much of the wilderness is also prime bear country, and was prime bear country before human development crept in. Now, it is not uncommon in Pagosa Country to hear people n!"##!$#%&'!()

County to quit-claim Alpha Drive interest B" Randi )ierce Staff Writer

After taking an official position in favor of the Town of Pagosa Springs’ efforts to bring Wal-Mart to town (see related article), the Archuleta County Board of County Commissioners voted 2-1 to quitclaim deed any interest in Alpha Road to the town. Alpha Road, of which ownership is a question still officially unanswered, is slated to be the primary entrance to Wal-Mart’s proposed site in Aspen Village. In considering a quit-claim deed during Tuesday’s meeting, County Attorney Todd Starr said he believed the county owned the road and presented four basic options to the commissioners, highlighting pluses and minuses of each option. The first option, Starr said, was the isolation option, or taking no

action. Pluses, Starr said, include avoiding tough political questions and recognizing that facts may change as the project progresses. Minuses highlighted by Starr include that the county has no reason to keep the road, the decision to do nothing would likely result in costly litigation, and that facts may change. The second option given by Starr was to ask for a declaratory judgement through the courts. That option would get a firm answer, Starr indicated, but he added the negatives of the county potentially not liking the answer, the cost of litigation (having affected property owners served in the suit), having to show proof, and that the answer given may not be limited to the question asked n!"##!(-,0%!() SUN photo/ Randi Pierce

With a 2-1 vote, the Archuleta County Board of County Commissioners decided to support the Town of Pagosa Springs in its efforts to bring a Wal-Mart to Pagosa Springs. The vote, and a vote to quitclaim deed Alpha Road to the Town of Pagosa Springs (see related story) came at the end of a fourhour meeting Tuesday afternoon. In a reversal from what the agenda stated, the Wal-Mart issue was considered first at the request of Michael Whiting, who later noted that a possible quit-claim deed for Alpha Road was a “tacit endorsement” of Wal-Mart, and a position on Wal-Mart should be considered first. To begin the discussion with the commissioners, the BoCC flipped a coin to determine if Steve Wadley or Michael Whiting would speak first, with Wadley winning and deferring to Whiting. In response to Chair Clifford Lucero’s request at agenda review for each commissioner to draft a motion on the topic, Whiting said he had drafted a resolution he believed was appropriate. Wadley said he hoped to stay out of the Wal-Mart issue, which he described as emotional and polarizing. Wadley noted that he had never had any private meetings with any Wal-Mart representative and spoke of his belief in private property rights. Wadley also stated he didn’t believe the same reaction would result if a different large chain proposed moving to Pagosa Springs. Without offering comments of his own, Lucero opened the floor to public comment before any motions were made, stating he hoped to move forward with a decision at the meeting. Fourteen audience members made their way to the microphone to chime in on the topic. The first of those, Vivian Rader, noted that there are two Wal-Marts — the business and the project — saying the store had the right to locate in Pagosa, but should receive n!"##!1%-23%&*!()

Pagosa:

A 7-stoplight town B" Randi )ierce Staff Writer

In the coming weeks, Pagosa Springs will be a seven-stoplight town after Colorado Department of Transportation workers install a signal at the intersection of U.S. 160 and Eighth Street. According to information provided during a meeting between CDOT staff, Archuleta County staff and the board of county commissioners, the project has been awarded to a contractor and is waiting on a notice to proceed. A list of current and upcoming projects provided during the meeting shows an estimated budget for the project of $830,000, funded through FASTER, which raised

vehicle registration fees to have increased funding for roads in Colorado. The project is slated for completion by mid October, according to the document. Other projects on the list include the replacement of a failing culvert near milepost 142 on U.S. 160, west of 10th Street in Pagosa Springs. The work, with an estimated cost of $693,000, is set to begin in September and be completed by November. A project slated to be advertised next summer, in 2013, includes improvements to intersections in Aspen Springs. “This project includes intersecn!"##!"*+,-./0*!()

Who is paying for the noise?

Is $4 million adequate to fix 6.2 miles of Piedra Road?

Each week the decibel level rises and, soon, the din will be unbearable. The noise? Campaign advertising. With the November election just around the corner, we are being assailed with an ever-greater amount of television advertising and, soon, flyers will arrive in the mail like snowflakes falling on Wolf Creek Pass during a winter storm. Here in Pagosa Country, ears and eyes will be savaged by ads for national and state candidates. If 2008 and 2010 elections are an example, groups other than the candidates’ campaign committees — the committees he or she can claim they control — will pay for a good portion of ads. So, who’s paying the bills? It’s hard to know in many cases, and that’s a problem. With the proliferation of Super Pacs, 527s and so-called “social welfare” or “dark money” groups (501c6), access to vital information is blocked. Some of the riches spent by these groups will, no doubt, affect races as seemingly insignificant (in the sense of national prominence) as those for the state legislature. We need to know who supplies the funds. It’s not that candidates can’t raise money on their own. A glance at recent campaign financing for the two major candidates in the race for U.S. Rep. for District 3 —Scott Tipton (R) and Sal Pace (D) —shows Tipton raising $1,624,103 and Pace $1,181,252. We encounter the trouble when we consider the role of advocacy groups like Super Pacs, 527s and “dark money” organizations will be felt sharply this fall. The 527s are particularly interesting. These “groups” are permitted under a section of the Internal Revenue Code, and other law allows them to attempt to influence election campaigns so long as they do not use certain language (phrases like “vote for”), do not directly subsidize campaigns and are not under the direct control of a candidate’s campaign organization. They are allowed to collect and spend soft money — unlimited donations from corporations, unions and wealthy individuals. Republicans and Democrats alike are supported by 527s. Likewise, 501c6 “dark money” organizations, given their non-profit status, are not required to reveal donors and, with few restrictions, will step into the advertising mix with force this fall. These groups, along with Super Pacs (which also raise and spend unlimited amounts of money so long as they don’t “coordinate” with candidates) are main sources of candidate-bashing advertising in all mediums. Why is it a worry? After all, isn’t it a matter of free speech? The problem is lack of disclosure. Shouldn’t we know who is paying for the trash that arrives in our mailboxes and assaults us from our TV sets? We can identify only some contributors to Super Pacs, 527s and 501c6 groups, but it is an arduous task. Second: do we allow an ever-smaller number of powerful interests to dominate the political landscape? Are American voters being cut from the mix if money is the sole determining factor in our elections? We must demand of candidates that they reveal all details relative to campaign finances, including all contributors and candidates’ true links to 527s and Super Pacs. We should demand from candidates a pledge that, if elected at either the state or national level, they will work to close loopholes that allow 527s and “dark money” groups that engage in campaign politics to exist, and will work diligently, in non-partisan fashion, to reform campaign finance law, perhaps creating law that limits the duration of campaigns and creates a system of public funding. Lacking this, voters must deal with the prospect of a constitutional amendment that will end the campaign finance mess we are in. We must stop the noise and clean our house, or the American voter will be forever in the dark. Karl Isberg

Taken from SUN files of August 11, 1922 The archaeological expedition from the State Historical and Natural History Society and the University of Denver, which is working in the prehistoric ruins twenty-two miles west of this city, reports the finding of a rare piece of pottery in the form of a mountain sheep. This is an extremely valuable object, because of the fact that animal figures made from pottery have been found in only one or two cases in the prehistoric ruins of the Southwest. The piece of pottery, which was undoubtedly for ceremonial use, stands eight and one-quarter inches high from the bottom of the front feet to the top of the head. It is a replica of the mountain sheep down to the minutest detail and is of a grayish white color with stripes of black painted around the legs and body.

Taken from SUN files of August 13, 1937 The highway department is busy this week regraveling and getting the street of Pagosa ready for oiling. The city has made arrangements for the State to oil the entire street that consists of the portion of highway 160 that passes through town. This much needed improvement will add much to the looks as well as the elimination of dust to the business houses and residences along the street. Jim Moorehead is building a new concrete building on the site west of the light office, which will be the home of a new filling station. Bob Bucanan of Durango has the contract on the building and expects to have the building completed in about six weeks.

Taken from SUN files of August 9, 1962 This summer has seen many more campers in the Town Park than usual. It has also seen some nights when there could have been more had the space been available. Many days see tourists stop and find no place for a picnic in the park. Local residents have also found that often they cannot find a place for a picnic. The town owns a large acreage on Reservoir Hill and this could certainly be used to advantage to help attract, and keep, larger numbers of tourists here during the summer months. The Reservoir Hill area has a wonderful potential for a Town Park and recreation site. It would require some money to accomplish many of the things that need doing. The area is close to town and it could be used for many things besides the accomodation of tourists.

Taken from SUN files of August 6, 1987 Appeals relating to the proposed Wolf Creek Valley Ski Area have been suspended for 90 days. The suspension is the result of Regional Forester Gary Cargill’s concern about the financial ability of Westfork Investment, Ltd., the proponent, to carry out the project. Cargill has therefore directed John Kirkpatrick, supervisor of the San Juan National Forest to obtain “a current and comprehensive update of technical and financial qualifications” of Westfork Investment to determine their standing as a proponent. “If Westfork Investment, Ltd. no longer qualifies as a proponent, then the resource issues addressed in the various appeals would likely become moot,” Cargill said in a letter to Kirkpatrick dated July 30, 1987.

Thursday, August 9, 2012 — The Pagosa Springs SUN — A3

Letters Read Dear Editor: Both parties write frequently about ObamaCare. I’m sure they have read it, but for those of you that have not, let me give you an example of ObamaCare. As you’ve heard, it is a multi-thousand page bill, so I just “searched” for what it said about giving extra money to states recovering from major disasters, bribing them to vote for ObamaCare (like Louisiana and hurricane Katrina). Here are the words: “Sec. 2006. Special adjustment to FMAP determination for certain States recovering from a major disaster. Section 1905 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C.1396d), as amended by sections 2001(a)(3) and 2001(b)(2), is amended — (1) in subsection (b), in the first sentence, by striking ‘subsection (y) and inserting ‘subsections (y) and (aa); and (2) by adding at the end the following new sub11 section: (aa)(1) Notwithstanding subsection (b), beginning January 1, 2011, the Federal medical assistance percentage for a fiscal year for a disaster-recovery FMAP adjustment State shall be equal to the following: (A) In the case of the first fiscal year (or part of a fiscal year) for which this subsection applies to the State, the Federal medical assistance percentage determined for the fiscal year without regard to this subsection and subsection (y), increased by 50 percent of the number of percentage points by which the Federal medical assistance percentage determined for the State for the fiscal year without regard to this sub section and subsection (y), is less than the Federal medical assistance percentage determined for the State for the preceding fiscal year after the application of only subsection (a) of section 5001 of Public Law 111–5 (if applicable to the preceding fiscal year) and without regard to this subsection, subsection (y), and subsections (b) and (c) of section 5001 of Public Law 111–5. (2) In this subsection, the term disaster-recovery FMAP adjustment State means a State that is one of the 50 States or the District of Columbia, for which, at any time during the preceding 7 fiscal years, the President has declared a major disaster under section 401 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act…” FMAP is “Federal medical assistance percentage.” Now you understand why Pelosi voted for it without reading it, and we understand why Obama had difficulty explaining it. I don’t know why they did not just project Sec. 2006 up on the teleprompter. Within ObamaCare there are more than 2,500 references to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. There are more than 700 instances when he or she is instructed that they “shall” do something and more than 200 times when they “may” take at their sole discretion some form of regulatory action. On 139 occasions, the law mentions that the “Secretary determines.” In essence one person, appointed by and reporting to the president, will be in charge of the health care of 310 million Americans if ObamaCare is fully operational in 2014.

Right Dear Editor: Now for the ones screaming for gun control: where are the screams for his parents to be punished? They raised the child and since he had problems, they knew of them. The parents are the ones truly responsible for this loss of life in the movie theater, for if they would have taken him out behind the wood shed and taught him right from wrong as our Christian Bible tells us to do, then maybe he would have had respect for others and their lives and their freedoms. I think its time for all Christians to stand up and let’s let God and the rule book for life (the Bible) start deciding what is right for this country, for that is what it was founded on. And why has no one pushed for Jim Sawicki as a write-in candidate for sheriff? He seems to be the only true American with enough backbone and common sense to stand up for what’s right. Gary D. Gray Bangs, Texas

Dear Editor: The most intelligent approach to the Wal-Mart situation appeared to me in a letter in The SUN by Muriel Eason. A Community Benefits Agreement to be drawn up and signed by Wal-Mart and the Town Council should include the several items listed: No sales tax rebates. No infrastructure taxpayer assistance. No property tax breaks. No help in financing Wal-Mart. Cleanup of wastewater from parking lot. If they fail, their building becomes the property of the town, etc. I might add: locate in a commercial area away from a residential development. There are some points I would not agree with, such as Wal-Mart contributing to other businesses, and promises on number of employees. After all, Wal-Mart is a big and prosperous company. Why would they need any assistance? If they are bringing any benefit to the community, they will succeed. If not, they will fail, just like any enterprise. Let them prove it one way or another. It is unacceptable to me that government at any level should provide “corporate welfare.” There is nothing new about the “big box” concept. Businesses do get replaced. Companies like City Market replaced the small grocery store; Ace Hardware replaced the small hardware store, etc. The Pagosa SUN is a good publication, and its owner and editor should be commended on a great job. Compared to some of the local Denver metro papers, in my opinion, it is of superior quality. Clive Lamprell Golden, Colo.

Dear Editor: I have watched with interest the ongoing dialogue about ownership of Alpha Drive. I was the founding chairman of the Alpha/ Rockridge Metro District which was established some 20 years ago. The district has been maintaining that road with Highway User Tax Funds (HUTF) from the county and mill levy since the inception of the district. As a consequence of the Fairfield Settlement, the road was completely reconstructed to county standards with the approval of the county. Alpha Drive has been the primary entrance to the district as evidenced by the recent addition of the traffic light and associated internal routing of traffic. This was all done long before any public knowledge of proposed establishment of a Wal-Mart. After 20 years of defacto ownership by the metro district, it is interesting that the district has never been approached or consulted with respect to the changes that the town has effected within the area. It appears the county has indicated a willingness to quit-claim the ownership of Alpha Drive to the Town of Pagosa. This would result in the disenfranchment of all the residents of the district who are taxpayers to the county, but would

Dear Editor: Amigo Karl: What is happening in the greatest nation on earth? Our most beautiful America can become sad and broken hearted in a matter of a few seconds. The mass shooting of innocent people by cowards with machine guns is occurring much too often. I am a disabled Vietnam veteran for about a year now, since I got my award for disabilities that happened some 45 years ago. Those of you who watch ABC news know that Robin Roberts is challenged by a blood disorder and is on sick leave. I can relate to her illness. I am challenged not by one, but by two blood disorders every single day. Hello, Agent Orange chemical warfare. I have never received a penny from the Department of Defense for Agent Orange, but the VA does provide me with free health care. This is not about me. Amigo, Karl, I want to address this note to the many wonderful people who acknowledged our group of Veterans for Veterans entry in the Fourth of July parade. From both sidelines of the parade route, we were overwhelmed with cheers, applause of gratitude and kindness; it could have brought tears to our eyes, but grumpy old

men and women veterans do not cry. Just don’t ask me how many times I cried in Vietnam. If someone wants to know those stories, call in a request. I’ll write a story about the life of a combat mission gone to hell. We did not rate a single picture or a complimentary word in the newspaper about our float. We understand, we are young, a new group of community oriented service to Pagosa Country. Adios, good day God give to you, Sevedeo Martinez

Fiber Festival Dear Editor: In the 13 years our family has enjoyed a part-time home here in Pagosa Springs, we have often noted, with considerable perplexity, various opportunities for economic development that tend to go unrealized here. Pagosa Springs possesses an amazing diversity of resources on which to base a vibrant and unified local economy and culture. When opportunities go untouched, inevitably, less desirable economic solutions may be forced upon the community out of necessity (let’s say no more about Wal-Mart). In this vein, I would like to draw attention to the excellent short article by Pauline Benetti (PREVIEW, July 26), describing the nature and purpose of Pagosa Fiber Festival (PFF). To this I would like to add that PFF is a wonderful example of the sort of engine that drives economic activity of a very beneficial kind. Most festival attendees go home after PFF, having made a rather large economic transaction

!"#$%&'()&*#+(,#&-./0$+,1 with our community in return for education and fun, but certain key participants, the local animal raisers and fiber artists promoted by the festival remain here, conducting activities and creating products that help to make this community an interesting place to live. Over the long term, PFF enhances Pagosa Springs’ reputation as a locale focused on sustainable agriculture, history, the outdoors and creative pursuits — and such a reputation is the foundation on which Pagosa can build economic success of a sort on which we can (I hope) all agree. PFF can grow and it needs volunteers in order to continue. Please, Pagosa, don’t let the economic opportunity represented by PFF die for lack of support. Kitty Milliken

Anyone who is paying attention to reality will understand that you (with no help from our currently elected U.S. legislators) put the brakes on a freefall of the American economy that was leading fast and furious into another great depression, courtesy of policies like waging wars that weren’t paid for and cost trillions of dollars of your predecessor (he who must not be named).

Budget season begins for Archuleta County government By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

The days are still warm and the grass still green, but budget season is underway for Archuleta County government. Last Thursday, elected officials and county department heads were given budget instructions, budget preparation guidelines and a budget calendar. And early instructions indicate that the county is looking to reduce its overall budget. Included in a budget guidelines memo from Greg Schulte, county administrator and budget officer,

is a statement noting, “Operating budgets submitted for 2013 should include a 5% reduction from the authorized 2012 operating budget.” Staffing levels, however, are currently authorized to be at the same level as 2012 (total payroll and benefits for the county are slated to total $7,999,544 in 2012 across all departments, according to Schulte). “The economic condition of Archuleta County continues to be fragile,” Schulte wrote in the guidelines memo. “We must continue to budget conservatively.” Also included in the budget are

With your healthcare legislation, my husband, who was formerly not insurable due to a pre-existing condition, can now obtain health insurance — at a reasonable cost to boot. You promised to deliver Osama bin Laden’s head to a grieving country and you did just that. You are working to balance the budget with help from Warren Buffet who recognizes that he should be paying his fair share of taxes. Reagan’s “trickle down economics” doesn’t work. Hurray! Our troops are mostly out of Iraq — a ridiculous war based on lies told by, “he who must not be named.” Thank you also for thinking about our children’s future on this planet by raising MPG standards and looking toward green energy solutions while reducing our dependency on fossil fuels. The other guys want to frac our way to prosperity and to hell with clean water or the EPA. Not only that, but you can sing. I know you are fighting against the super pacs that are intentionally confusing the issues for gullible people who get their news from Fox. You’re fighting those, even worse than my ex-friend who told me he wouldn’t ever vote for a (expletive deleted). At least he was being honest. It’s hard to believe that people are still so unevolved this long after the civil rights movement. Anyway, I am out here rooting for you to win. The alternative is unimaginable. Does Romney think he can carry the election or the weight of the country’s woes? He can’t even carry a tune! Robin Nelson

Defense Dear Editor: Ya, we’re overdue fer a heartta-heart chitchat alright — real “critical analysis.” Despite Obama’s frightening image of military weapons on America’s streets, it’s pretty darn hard to seriously argue that a ban on “assault weapons” would reduce crime in the United States. As a matter-o-fact, even research done for the Clinton administration didn’t find that the federal as-

sault-weapons ban reduced crime. Actually, banning guns on the basis of how they look, and not how they operate, shouldn’t be expected to make any difference. And there are no published academic studies by economists or criminologists that find that the original federal assault-weapons ban to have reduced murder or violent crime generally. There is no evidence that the state assault-weapons ban reduced murder or violent-crime rates either. Indeed, it appears that crime has dropped because the ban no longer exists. Since the federal ban expired in Sept. 2004, murder and overall violent-crime rates have actually fallen. In 2003, the last full year before the law expired, the U.S. murder rate was 5.7 per 100,000 people. Preliminary numbers for 2011 show that the murder rate has fallen to 4.7 per 100,000 people. In fact, murder rates fell immediately after Sept. 2004, and they fell more in the states without assault-weapons bans than in the states with them. Correlation is not causation, of course, but these results also are consistent with logic and intuition. If law-abiding people have more access to guns, makes sense ta me that this makes life more difficult for criminals. They really don’t wanna mess with any “Doritostained finger” Americans. Let’s look at rural Arizona; given the upsurge in border violence, it’s likely that residents feel the need to defend themselves against drug predators, coyote gunmen or others. Yes, they can use semiautomatic rifles and shotguns, protected by the Second Amendment and unlikely to be banned by local law, but women generally don’t care to put in the training needed to master them. Nor can the elderly handle them adeptly. For them, the Glock with a 33-round magazine is the weapon of maximum utility. You can load it on Sunday and shoot it all month (nobody wants to reload a gun while being shot at). It’s light and easy to control. You don’t have to carry it or conceal it; it’s under the bed or in the drawer until needed. When the question arises of who needs an extended magazine, the answer is: the most

defenseless of the defenseless. BTW … If the liberal clowns think that so-called “assault weapons” can hold larger magazines than hunting rifles you are mistaken. Any gun that can hold a magazine can hold one of any size. And that’s true for handguns as well as rifles. A magazine, which is basically a metal box with a spring, is also trivially easy to make and virtually impossible to stop criminals from obtaining. So, what are ya sanctimonious liberals gonna do now? Suggestion: Liberals should turn all their pistols (you might have an extended magazine) over to the cops, cause they’ll protect you. They can git there in time — and good luck. Cause yer definitely gonna need it! Jim Sawicki

Club vice president Mary Ann Smith has been asked to travel the state, giving speeches on behalf of Republican Women. Chornenky’s stay will be a pleasant and memorable experience because of the generosity of R.D. Whittington of The Springs EcoLuxe Resort and Spa, provid-

ing accommodations. We are most grateful to him. In 2012, Rae Lynne Chomenky of Arizona was elected NFRW president and took office in January. Previously she served as first, second and fourth vice president of the NFRW. Her involvement with NFRW since joining in 1994 has also included serving on the NFRW board of directors, membership committee, program and achievement awards committees, served as vice chair of the NFRW Bylaws Committee and as NFRW state presidents coordinator. Chornenky earned a bachelor’s degree (graduating magna cum laude), master’s degree in counseling and juris doctorate, all from Arizona State University. She has practiced law for 28 years and currently owns her own business, making her sensitive to the issues of running a corporation. In 1995, Chornenky retired from the superior court bench and went on to serve as a legislative attorney for an Arizona cabinet-level agency, drafting extensive legislation and successfully lobbying state budget issues, laws and regulatory acts. She has appeared in television, radio and print media, as well. All are welcome to come and hear this distinguished NFRW president speak.

Search for missing man called off By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

A search and rescue mission to find a man reported missing last Friday Photo courtesy was unsuccessACSO ful and was ter- David Bruce minated Mon- Ritchie day night. A missing persons report was filed Saturday for David Bruce Ritchie, of Bayfield, last seen Friday in the Beaver Meadows area near the Archuleta and La Plata county line, where he exited a vehicle and entered the woods. By Monday, Archuleta County, Upper San Juan Search and Rescue, Mounted Search and Rescue, and La Plata County Search and Rescue, as well as numerous others, were on the lookout for Ritchie. The search proved unsuccess-

ful and was terminated Monday night. “He was missing of his own free will and we did everything we could to try to locate him in the immediate area and surrounding area,” said Archuleta County Undersheriff Jim Saunders. Additionally, Saunders said the search didn’t fit the normal criteria for search and rescue (SAR), which primarily deals with those lost, including juveniles, not by free will, and those who are injured. SAR, Saunders pointed out, is made up entirely of volunteers, many of whom have regular jobs. “If they (the missing) don’t want to be found, it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to find them,” Saunders said. Ritchie is 59 years old, 5-7, approximately 175 pounds, with gray hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information is urged to call law enforcement. randi@pagosasun.com

!"#$!"#$$%&"'($ Committee to consider proposed cargo container regulations %$&'# !"#$$(#$$)&*#+ By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

The first reading of Ordinance number 776, which would allow for the addition of three new sections concerning the use of cargo containers to the Pagosa Springs Land Use Development Code, was tabled by Mayor Ross Aragon at Tuesday night’s Town Council meeting and a committee comprising trustees Don Volger and Darrel Cotten was appointed to review the ordinance and report back to a work session. “I just have a problem,” explained Aragon, “that we are acting on something we haven’t talked about.” Town Manager David Mitchem then asked if committee members from the Pagosa Springs Planning Commission who have already worked on this ordinance should be included in the new committee. Aragon agreed. The first of the three recommended additions contained in Ordinance 776 is LUDC section 4.3.4.D.5, which deals with where cargo containers are allowed to exist. “Cargo Containers shall be prohibited in all zoning districts

except as allowed under LUDC section 4.3.4.D.5,” and it then elaborates that “Cargo Containers are allowed in Light Industrial (LI) Zoned Areas.” It also states that cargo containers can be no larger than 800 square feet, and goes on to specify that, “Cargo Containers must be screened and painted or sided to match the existing structure and/ or surrounding environment,” and that “Cargo Containers shall be used as accessory to a primary structure and the use of such shall be directly associated with the primary structure use.” As an added precaution, the section also specifies that the approval and permitting process must be completed before the use of a cargo container is allowed: “Site placement and painting/screening colors of Cargo Containers within Light Industrial (LI) zoning district, shall be approved at a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) Public Hearing by the Planning Commission.” The proposed section finishes up by stating, “Cargo Containers in place in any zoning district at the time of this code amendment, August 2012, are considered non-

conforming and shall comply with LUDC Article 9.” LUDC Article 9 states, “While nonconformities may continue, the provisions of this chapter are designed to curtail substantial investment in nonconformities to bring about their eventual elimination in order to preserve the integrity of this Land Use Code and the goals of the Town of Pagosa Springs.” The planning commission requested that town staff draft and send a letter to all property owners who have cargo containers within town boundaries to make them aware of these upcoming changes. The next proposed addition, LUDC section 4.4.2.G, allows for the temporary use of cargo containers. “Cargo Containers can be allowed for temporary use in areas zoned Commercial (C), Mixed Use Corridor (MU-C) and Mixed Use Town Center (MU-TC) for a maximum of 180 days.” It allows for an extension. “One additional 180 day extension period may be requested and administratively approved by the Planning Director, if the extension is requested and approved prior to the expiration of the first 180 day

period.” It also specifies the same requirements for these temporary cargo containers as the permanent ones in light industrial zones. In other words, the painting/siding, allowable use, site placement and permitting requirements are the same. When asked for clarification, Mitchem confirmed that the Aspen Village Subdivision, the proposed site for the new Wal-Mart store, is zoned as commercial. “(Cargo containers) was an issue that was brought up early during the WalMart dialogue, and Wal-Mart has agreed that they will not have such containers on their property.” This topic was mentioned at Monday night’s meeting of the Pagosa Springs Community Development Corporation, during a discussion of a Community Benefits Agreement. Several speakers expressed a concern that promises made by Wal-Mart need to be put in writing and made legally binding, especially if they are not covered by town codes. The final proposed addition, LUDC section 4.4.2.H, allows for the temporary use of a cargo con-

Move underway to give control of geothermal resources to local government By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

Pagosa Springs Town Manager David Mitchem reports that the Colorado Department of Local Affairs and Archuleta County have asked the Town of Pagosa Springs to help develop model 1041 regulations, which will put control over local geothermal resources in the hands of local government instead of state agencies. According to the DOLA website, “These 1041 powers allow local governments to identify, designate and regulate areas and activities of state interest through a local permitting process. The general intention of these powers is to allow for local governments to maintain their control over particular development projects even where the development project has statewide impacts.” At the June 28 meeting of the Colorado Geothermal Working Group, Archuleta County attorney Todd Starr presented the case for establishing 1041 regulations here in Pagosa Country. According to Colorado Revised Statutes 24-65.1-10, “Local governments shall be en-

couraged to designate areas and activities of state interest and, after such designation, shall administer such areas and activities of state interest and promulgate guidelines for the administration thereof.” The statute goes on to state, “Appropriate state agencies shall assist local governments to identify, designate and adopt guidelines for administration of matters of state interest.” Among the areas of state interest listed in the statute is, “the use of geothermal resources for the commercial production of electricity.” “If a local jurisdiction wants to go down this road,” explained Mitchem, “there is a requirement that the jurisdiction develop guidelines, and they also may develop more detailed regulations. The essence here is local jurisdictions controlling their own destiny.” He went on to reveal that vendors wanting to develop geothermal resources in Colorado have complained, “the state regulations are cumbersome and sometimes unforgivable.” Starr gave several reasons for developing 1041 regulations. For example, “local communities are better-suited to address environmental

impacts of land use.” He also explained, “1041 regulations are rarely preempted.” He cited cases where local zoning laws did not stand up to projects funded by or authorized by special districts, colleges and municipalities, whereas 1041 regulations apply even to state agencies and on federal land. Mitchem announced that DOLA has agreed to provide a 50/50 matching grant to help the town develop model regulations. The cost to the town will be somewhere between $2,500 and $3,300 and will come from the Capital Reserve Fund. Originally, town staff had requested the money come from the Geothermal Fund, but that was changed to the Capital Reserve Fund because, “With some construction, river water diversion, that’s going to happen this fall,” Mitchem explained. “We’re going to hit the Geothermal Fund pretty hard.” Chafee, Ouray and Dolores counties are also participating in the development of 1041 geothermal regulations. The Pagosa Springs Town Council agreed to also participate. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

County purchases equipment, allocates funds By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

Archuleta County approved the purchase of equipment Tuesday afternoon that will help the county replace a portion of the Road and Bridge Department’s aging fleet. The first purchase approved Tuesday was for attachments for a multiuse truck purchased in June. The purchase will be made via a sole-source contract with O.J. Watson, from whom the truck was purchased, so the equipment will fit the new truck and be interchangeable with a multiuse truck purchased in 2010. The purchase price for the

equipment is $145,037. The second purchase was for a 2012 Ford F550 crew cab with dump body and 10-foot snow plow from Sill-Terhar Motors in Broomfield, Colo. The county will pay $55,579 (under the budgeted amount of $65,000) for the truck under the state bid amount, which Road and Bridge Superintendent Dave Guilliams said in agenda review on July 31 was less expensive than what the county could purchase the truck for when bidding it out on its own. In other news at the meeting, the board: • Approved distributing the 2012 Forest Payment the county will

receive in 2013. Under the 2012 Federal Forest Payment and Secure Rural School and Community Self Determination Action Election, the county is required to either elect a federal forest share of 25 percent, which would provide the county with $40,355, or select a full payment amount, which would produce $482,802. With the full payment amount, the county must allocate certain amounts to Title II and Title III uses, with the remainder allocated to Title I for public roads and public schools. Of that Title I portion, the county must give a minimum of 25 per-

BoCC deals with seniors issues By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

The senior center was again at the forefront at a board of county commissioners meeting Tuesday, when a bevy of seniors spoke about the center’s director during the meeting’s first public comment section. Many of the comments dealt with a situation reported previously in The SUN where Ed Bennett received a letter from county staff after he told center Director Mussetta Wollenweber to, “bite me.” Since that time, a number of seniors who attend the center have purchased shirts with the phrase on them (the shirts referring to fishing, with a fly fishing lure on them). Beverly Arrendell referred to the shirt during her public comment on the matter, noting that Wollenweber has uttered the same phrase many times and calling the letter received by Bennett a “mockery” with vile language that made it difficult to respect those in authority who OK’d the letter. Lymon Allen noted the indistinct meaning of the phrase in question, with the phrase uttered on TV shows, with various meanings. He then added that county staff found the worst possible meaning of the phrase, calling Bennett a, “decent, honest and fine man.” Maureen Monroe, too, stated that Bennett was a “fine man” and said she found the letter disgusting. “I think you should apologize to him,” Monroe said. Dave Pettus, like many of the others, urged the county to correct its “mistake,” siding with several calling for the letter to be expunged. Ed Bennett then spoke on his own behalf, offering clarification of the incident, during which he said that Wollenweber berated and harassed him. When Bennett claimed the phrase was dirty not

in his mind, but in the mind of those who drafted the letter, Commissioner Clifford Lucero stated that he wouldn’t stand for derogatory comments being directed toward county staff. Bennett urged the county to either expunge or retract the letter, or prosecute for the incident, with Lucero responding that the county attorney would advise the board on the matter. “That means ‘no,’ and you will hear from me again,” Bennett said. Before the issue was laid to rest at the meeting, Cecilia Hopper said she, too, was harassed by Wollenweber when taking an emergency call in the center. “We, the seniors, don’t care for Mussetta,” Hopper said before vowing to not return to the center. Following the public comment session, Bennett urged those in attendance for his issue to leave. In other news relating to senior issues, the board awarded a contract to replace the roof at the Casa de los Arcos facility to Durango Roofing Company. The contract was awarded after two iterations of a request for bid to replace the roof with $125,000 in grant money awarded to Archuleta County by the state. The first quest for bids ended with one bid received in an amount over that budgeted. When the state declined to give more money to the project, a request for bids was reissued with a slightly different scope of work. That request, Jodi Starr, housing director, said, garnered five bids, two of which were acceptable and one of which fell within budget. Engineering firm Reynolds and Associates looked at the bids to determine that materials used were sufficient, Starr indicated. The winning bid is in the amount of $123,733. randi@pagosasun.com

cent to the County Road and Bridge Fund and a minimum of 25 percent to the public schools in the county. The allocation of the remaining 50 percent of the funding is to be decided by a group of representatives from the three school districts in the county (the Bayfield and Ignacio school districts also serve small portions of Archuleta County) and the three members of the BoCC or their designees. Further, the county has the option of giving the road and bridge portion of the Title I funding to the schools in order to maximize the Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) received by the county. Allocations of the Title I and Title III funds are subtracted on a dollar-for-dollar basis from the PILT the county receives. Based on that information, the county elected to allocate 85 percent to Title I funds, with the road and bridge and school funding designated to the public schools in the

The Cargo Container shall be removed from the premises, prior to a Certificate of Occupancy (CO) or Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) or Certificate of Completion (CC) can be issued to occupy the premises or building addition.” This section goes on to specify that, “the Cargo Container use must be relative to the construction project the building permit is issued for,” and that “site placement of the container shall comply with property line set back distances.” The topic of cargo containers dates back to Nov. 8, 2011, when the planning commission decided that the LUDC does not sufficiently address for accessory uses of cargo containers, and decided formed a committee to create amendments that clarify appropriate uses based on what other communities have done and the needs of the local community. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

Town considers impact fee changes before ‘the elephant’ enters the room By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

The Pagosa Springs Town Council met Tuesday night to discuss refining the structure of the town’s impact fees schedule so that money generated can be used for a broader set of purposes, including construction of new trails, restrooms, picnic tables, park benches, bicycle racks, an amphitheater and so on. As it stands now, money generated from certain impact fees can only be used for a recreation center or a county administration building. “We have collected approximately $63,000 that’s dedicated currently, we believe, specifically to a county administration building,” explained Town Planner James Dickhoff, “and just under $26,000 that appears to be dedicated specifically to a recreation center. Those are the fees we are looking at returning within ten years.” After the meeting Town Manager David Mitchem clarified that, since those fees were collected specifically for those projects, if those projects are not completed within 10 years, the money must be refunded. Additionally, he explained that plans to build a recreation center are not moving forward because it is not economically viable at this time. “We do have some big projects that are coming up,” Dickhoff said, “that we could see substantial impact fee collections. One of them could be over a half million dollars, for example, so we want to ensure that those monies be collected and will be utilized. Those (projects) are coming down pretty soon, so I think it is something we should talk about very soon and not miss out on these upcoming opportunities.” The Archuleta County/Pagosa Springs Joint Impact Fee Analysis, published in 2010 by Economic

Planning Systems, Inc., recommended that, “the proposed (impact) fee is subject to periodic update based on changes in developable land, cost estimates, or outside funding sources.” At that time, due to difficult economic conditions, the Pagosa Springs Town Council and the Archuleta County commissioners elected not to modify their respective impact fees. Some of the changes that EPS suggests the town and county analyze when they conduct periodic reviews of the impact fee are, “changes in the required facilities listed in the study, changes in the cost to update and/or administer the fee, changes in costs greater than inflation, changes in assumed land use, and changes in other funding sources.” EPS also recommends that, “any changes to the fee based on the periodic update will be presented to the elected boards of the County and Town for approval prior to an increase or decrease in the fee. These boards also may specify during a periodic update which improvements should receive funding from the Impact Fee Program before other improvements.” While town staff did not make recommendations to the council concerning whether to raise or lower impact fees, they did recommend changing the types of recreational projects the impact fee money should go towards. Council member David Schanzenbaker asked Dickhoff for some clarification: “So, James, looking at the fee schedule, there’s an item for regional public building impact fee. Is that split into two parts?” “No,” Dickhoff replied. “That’s the county administration building.” “Then regional recreational facilities?” Schanzenbaker asked. “Is that the rec center?”

“Correct,” Dickhoff said. “Okay, so that’s for residential only?” Schanzenbaker asked. “There’s different breakdowns for each category,” Dickhoff said. “Lodging, retail, residential.” As he looked closely at the papers in front of him, Schanzenbaker observed, “It doesn’t look like that item, that impact fee, gets applied to non-residential development.” “That’s correct,” Dickhoff conceded. As it stands now, according to the Town of Pagosa Springs Municipal Code, which was adopted in 2005, and the Per Diem and Fee Schedule, which was updated in 2009, impact fees that would go toward regional recreation facilities, schools, parks and trails are only charged for residential buildings; fees for public buildings and emergency services are assessed on both residential and non-residential buildings, at slightly different rates; and only road impact fees are assessed on buildings at varying rates, depending on whether they are used for retail, office/industrial, single-family residences or multifamily residences and lodges. According to this same code, the owner of a residential building pays $859 per dwelling unit for a “regional recreation facilities impact fee,” $368 per dwelling unit for a “park impact fee,” and $464 per dwelling unit for a “trail impact fee.” The owner of a non-residential building doesn’t have to pay any of these fees. This is what officials believe must be changed in order for the town to be able to charge a development like the proposed Wal-Mart these fees. Such developments do, however, have to pay $741 for every 1,000 square feet of building size for an “emergency service provider impact fee” (while residential building

Eleven tips for taxpayers who owe money to the IRS Most taxpayers get a refund from the Internal Revenue Service when they file their tax returns. For those who don’t get a refund, the IRS offers several options to pay their tax bill. Here are eleven tips for taxpayers who owe money to the IRS. 1. Tax bill payments. If you get a bill from the IRS this summer that shows you owe late taxes, you are expected to promptly pay the tax owed including any penalties and interest. If you are unable to pay the amount due, it may be better for you to get a loan to pay the bill in full rather than to make installment payments to the IRS. That’s because the interest rate and penalties the IRS must charge by law are often higher than what lending institutions may be offering. 2. Electronic Funds Transfer. You can pay your tax bill by electronic funds transfer, check, money order, cashier’s check or cash. To pay using electronic funds transfer, use the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System by either calling (800) 555-4477 or using the online access at www.eftps.gov. 3. Credit card payments. You can pay your bill with a credit card. Again, the interest rate on a credit card may be lower than the combination of interest and penalties the IRS must charge. To pay by credit card contact one of the following processing companies: • WorldPay US, Inc. at (888) 9PAYTAX or www.payUSAtax.com. • Official Payments Corporation at (888) UPAY-TAX or www.officialpayments.com/fed. • Link2Gov Corporation at (888)

PAY-1040 or www.pay1040.com. 4. Additional time to pay. Based on your circumstances, you may be granted a short additional time to pay your tax in full. A brief additional amount of time to pay can be requested through the Online Payment Agreement application at IRS.gov or by calling (800) 829-1040. There generally is no set up fee for a short-term agreement. 5. Installment agreement. You may request an installment agreement if you cannot pay the total tax you owe in full. This is an agreement between you and the IRS to pay the amount due in monthly installment payments. You must first file all required returns and be current with estimated tax payments. 6. Apply Using Form 9465. You can complete and mail an IRS Form 9465, Installment Agreement Request, along with your bill using the envelope you received from the IRS. The IRS will inform you (usually within 30 days) whether your request is approved, denied, or if additional information is needed. 7. Apply Using Online Payment Agreement. If you owe $50,000 or less in combined tax, penalties and interest, you can request an installment agreement using the Online Payment Agreement application at IRS.gov. You may still qualify for an installment agreement if you owe more than $50,000, but you are required to complete a Form 433F, Collection Information Statement, before the IRS will consider an installment agreement. 8. User fees. If an installment agreement is approved, a one-time user fee will be charged. The user fee

for a new agreement is $105 or $52 for agreements where payments are deducted directly from your bank account. For eligible individuals with lower incomes, the fee can be reduced to $43. 9. Offer in Compromise. IRS is now offering more flexible terms with its Offer-in-Compromise (OIC) Program. An OIC is an agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS that settles the taxpayer’s tax debt for less than the full amount owed. An OIC is generally accepted only if the IRS believes, after assessing the taxpayer’s financial situation, that the tax debt can’t be paid in full as a lump sum or through a payment agreement. 10. Check withholding. Taxpayers who have a balance due may want to consider changing their Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate, with their employer. 11. Fresh Start. The IRS has a program to help struggling taxpayers get a fresh start. Through the Fresh Start program, individuals and small businesses may be able to pay the taxes they owe without facing additional or unnecessary burden. For more information about payment options or IRS’s Fresh Start program, visit IRS.gov. IRS Publications 594, The IRS Collection Process, and 966, Electronic Choices to Pay All Your Federal Taxes, also provide additional information regarding your payment options. These publications and Forms 9465 and W-4 can be obtained from IRS.gov or by calling (800) 829-3676.

county, and the allocation of the remaining 50 percent to be decided on by the group mentioned above. Eight percent, or $38,624, will be retained by the Forest Service as Title II funding, as required. Seven percent, or $33,796, will be reserved by the county for qualifying Title III projects. Only the Title III amount will be deducted from the county’s PILT payment. Audience member Bill Hudson suggested that, by maximizing the amount received by the county from the federal government, the federal government will further affect its financial situation, which will be left for the kids and grandkids of those in power now to fix.

Hudson also suggested that the school district provide information as to how the Title I funding has been spent — a suggestion Commissioner Clifford Lucero agreed with. • Approved the name of Railroad Court for a nonexclusive road easement that is approximately .486 miles long that intersects County Road 988 about .27 miles south of Colo. 151 and .71 miles north of County Road 977. • Approved reclassifying the Accounting Clerk II position to Accountant within the Department of Human Resources. The change was in response to a suggestion in the county’s audit that the previous setup, with the clerk and county’s contracts and procurement officer teaming up

to handle the accounting, could potentially pose a problem in the future. • Approved the Amended Service Plan for the Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District. The BoCC previously requested an amended service plan from the district. • Granted a conditional use permit to Mountain Landing Guest Quarters to develop an RV park on the property. • Approved the final plat for the Rock Ridge duplexes, to be located at Rock Ridge Country Estates. • Approved several lot consolidations. The next regular meeting of the BoCC is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on July 21. randi@pagosasun.com

owners pay $574 per dwelling unit), $564 per 1,000 square feet for a “regional public building impact fee” (residential building owners pay $450 per dwelling unit), and a “road impact fee” that varies depending on what type of residential or non-residential building it is. A retail business, for example, pays the largest “road impact fee,” at $3,669 for every 1,000 square feet of building size. Schanzenbaker raised a question concerning the tight timeline for completing any changes to the fee structure. “If we change the structure of these fees, would an ongoing development application be grandfathered into the previous schedule? Do you know when the cutoff date is for an application?” Dickhoff replied, “We have some flexibility when we actually collect those fees. Typically, it’s at the time they submit their (building) permit, because it is calculated on the square footage.” Schanzenbaker clarified, “So, it sounds like the fee schedule in effect at building permit time will be …” He paused, then said, “I guess I’m asking because of the elephant in the room. We have a large format retailer that’s going through development process now. If we change our impact fee regulations, would they be subject to the previous (schedule)?” Mitchem jumped in to clarify: “The answer is: If council takes action on the impact fee matter before that (building permit) application comes in, then the council’s modifications to the impact fees would apply going forward. They would not be grandfathered into the older verbiage.” Council member Darrel Cotton got in the last word on the discussion by saying, “I personally have a problem with impact fees.” He explained, “I’m not sure that there’s any fairness to it. The new guy pays and the old guy skates.” He suggested a board work session to get some direction on where to go with the question of impact fees. It was determined that two council members designated to study a cargo container issue would also deal with the topic of impact fees and would report back to the council. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

Wal-Mart n "ontin'e) from front

no special treatment. Rader also stated that the project’s effect on private property should be mitigated and that the BoCC should table the issue until more research could be done, pointing out that Wal-Mart violates the town’s comprehensive plan section on big box retailers. The youngest commenter, Michelle Church, was next, stating that Wal-Mart would not take away from the small-town feel of Pagosa, but would add another grocery store to compete with City Market, price-wise. Church also spoke of jobs, both at the store and during its construction, and noted it was “just another” job option and amenity that would bring revenue to the area. Marlene Minors stated her concern that county residents are the most-affected by the Wal-Mart, but had no say in the town’s vote to allow big box retailers.

Dennis Spence said he wanted personal rights respected, but not at the cost of killing the community. Monte Lane said he felt the good of the project outweighed the bad and the ugly, citing personal property rights and the potential for additional money in the community. Susie Kleckner asked what evidence and studies the board was relying on for taking a position, noting that prior boards has passed resolutions applicable to the situation. Lucero responded, saying the BoCC’s hand has been forced to take a position and that the board had been asked to take a position. Mike Church was next up, stating that people will always live close to commercial development, and that the site Wal-Mart intends to build on has been zoned commercial for 20 years. He also noted that other chain retailers in Pagosa Springs built square boxes with poor landscaping, but that WalMart was trying to design a nice

building. He also noted the small number of people at the meeting in which Aspen Village was approved (the subdivision where Wal-Mart plans to locate) and with Family Dollar, which is located closer to homes than Wal-Mart would be. Bill Hudson suggested that the commissioners schedule public hearings before taking a stance on the matter. Tom Olsen stated his belief that the store would be good for the community, especially for young families. He also noted it would provide summer jobs for youth in the community and would benefit the older citizens. Gary Williams was next up, stating that he believes the commissioners had already made up their minds, but urged the board to be deliberate, noting that Wal-Mart’s adjustments to the building design came from conflict over the matter. Dan Sanders spoke in favor of the store, citing that it would

struction taking place in 2014. In addition to discussing those projects at the meeting, County Administrator Greg Schulte urged CDOT staff to be “creative” and help process paperwork in an expedited manner to allow the county to access the $3.5 million awarded to the county last week for the reconstruction of Piedra Road (CDOT is currently set to administer the grant funds). “Our aim here is to try to get this so we’re doing the construction in thirteen,” Schulte said. CDOT Region 5 Director Kerrie Neet said she believed the county’s award of $3.5 million was the region’s second largest federal grant, second to last year’s $4.6 million for work on the interchange at Mesa Verde. Neet also noted that the Public Lands Highway funding (from which the $3.5 million came) is going away. Neet vowed to do what she could

to help, adding that she needed to figure out the flow of the money. Neet also stated that, since the project is on a federal forest highway and not a CDOT road, the U.S. Forest Service could oversee the project. County Public Works Director Ken Feyen noted that the county has done everything possible before getting the contract and was ready. “I think you’ve been bold,” Transportation Commissioner Steve Parker said, noting that he knows the county has been looking for funding for Piedra Road for at least 11 years. “I think you’re in good shape, in all honesty,” Neet said. The two entities also discussed the 2011 CDOT Annual Report at the meeting, which includes breakdowns of the revenues and expenditures of CDOT on statewide and regional levels. randi@pagosasun.com

which we have,” Starr said. Commissioner Michael Whiting noted that all options included potential litigation, asking who would be sued and who would be suing, with Starr responding that there had been no threats of litigation, but that area resident Vivian Rader had stopped just short of a threat (a claim Rader later denied). Whiting noted that, at the time of the agreement with the town to annex the road (2006), the county must have thought it owned the road. Starr said the quit-claim deed would release the county from that obligation, though the results would not be the same — the annexation would leave ownership (and presumably maintenance) with the county, while the quitclaim deed would transfer ownership. Starr also denied a claim that the county did not want to find the owner of the road, stating that, based on the MoU with the town and other evidence, he believes the county owned the road. Whiting then questioned the value of the road as an asset to the county, later clarifying that the county could use the road as leverage in the situation, specifically to be heard as the process moves forward. Starr said he would be hardpressed to put a monetary value on the road, later adding that using it as leverage would be a policy decision. Whiting was then given the opportunity to make a motion. He responded, saying, “I’ll make a motion, but you won’t like it.” Wadley then made a motion to quit-claim any county ownership or interest to the town and Commissioner Clifford Lucero seconded the motion, opening the floor to public comment.

Mark Weiler was the first up, suggesting that no litigation would be worth the result. Rader was the second up, denying any threats of litigation and stating that during a meeting she had with county staff, a fifth option of two commissioners taking a stance that the county owned the road was mentioned. She also noted that it had been decided the road had no value without public input and that, if the county owned the road, the ownership would have to be recorded per state statute. Muriel Eason said the road was the only leverage the county had to give it input and protect county residents, who are the most affected by the Wal-Mart. Udgar Parsons pointed to a prior statement by Starr in which Starr expressed the opinion that the county did not own the road and had suggested that a title search be completed to determine ownership. Parsons added there was still no clarity concerning ownership of the road. Gary Williams asked why the same effort was not being given to the road as has been given to determining lodging rentals that were not paying the proper taxes. With no further public comment, Lucero asked Wadley to reread the motion. Whiting then suggested that the Mal-Mart issue is like rocket fuel — expensive and dangerous — with the need to check every detail. “To move forward on this is a mistake,” Whiting said. Lucero pointed out that the town has said it would take the road, which the county doesn’t need or want. With that, Lucero called for a vote, with he and Wadley in favor and Whiting against. randi@pagosasun.com

tion improvements at Hurt and Badger Drives along US 160,” the project list states. CDOT staff said at Tuesday’s meeting that the project will also include some sight improvements through grading, a 300-foot-long, nine-foot-high retaining wall, and improvements to the Turkey Springs intersection. At the meeting, the commissioners showed interest in seeing aestheic options for the wall, which CDOT said could be done. Additionally, the road is expected to be resurfaced from the newlyresurfaced area near West Cat Creek (where bridge construction is taking place) to the area near Happy Camper, which was resurfaced in recent years. CDOT staff said the project will be advertised in June 2013, with some construction likely taking place that year, but with the majority of con-

in the suit. “A bad settlement is always better than a good trial,” Starr noted. The third option given by Starr was to let someone else file a suit. Starr mentioned no pluses for the option, but again noted that the county has, “no business” owning the road. He said the county would have to defend itself in any suits brought forward (creating a monetary risk), and noted that a Memorandum of Understanding exists between the county and the town determining that the county would file a petition of annexation to include the road in the town. Starr noted that, while the county enjoys governmental immunity, it would still be open to liability in the case of a lawsuit brought by a third party. The fourth option presented was the quit-claim deed, which Starr said would rid the county of the road, would not require an official position and, should litigation arise, the county would have the opportunity to file a disclaimer citing the quit-claim deed. Starr noted that a quit-claim deed does not depend on ownership of the road and does not ask the county to admit or deny ownership, but simply gives whatever ownership or interest the county may have to the town. As an example, Starr said he could technically quit-claim deed Commissioner Steve Wadley’s house to County Administrator Greg Schulte, despite the fact he has no ownership of Wadley’s house and may not be giving anything. Wadley added that, in the event that someone does claim ownership of the road, none of that owner’s interest would have been transferred to the town. “We’re only giving away that

provide needed grocery shopping, and urged that local leaders not banter and decide what companies could locate here, but allow free enterprise. Julie Church stated that Pagosa was lucky Wal-Mart plans to build a store in Pagosa in light of the economic downturn and said that, “nobody wants to come here.” Church added that Wal-Mart would be competition for City Market and that denying Wal-Mart the right to build would be, “shooting ourselves in the foot” for future business. Muriel Eason, too, said she felt the commissioners had made up their minds, but said she didn’t feel there had been enough time to provide comment to the BoCC and that a Community Benefit Agreement could help make it a win-win situation. Last up during public comment was Udgar Parsons, who noted that the Pagosa Springs Community Development Corporation had elected to remain neutral on the topic (see related article). Lucero then turned the meeting back to the commissioners, asking for a motion, with Wadley again deferring to Whiting. Whiting stated that the, “issue has torn me up as a decision maker,” adding that he believes in free market and that there was no reason for the county to weigh in on the issue.

Whiting continued to question facts stated throughout the WalMart process, such as employment estimates, and stated it would take time to know the facts. With that, Whiting read his drafted resolution, which included the assertion that the BoCC has held no public meetings to obtain input on the project, has not reviewed the project and its impacts, has not had access to information to assess the project, has no legal right and has not been asked by the town to participate in any meetings regarding the project. The resolution asked that the board maintain a neutral position, but might in the future take a position when adequate information is provided and the public has been given the option to weigh in. Lucero seconded the motion for the purpose of discussion, with Wadley then stating that any BoCC participation would be symbolic, and that the county had been asked to take a position, with the project becoming a county-related item in a limited way (possible ownership of Alpha Road). Lucero said he seconded Whiting’s motion to accept the resolution out of respect, then called for a vote in which he and Wadley voted against Whiting’s resolution. With that, Wadley made a motion to take a position in support of the town in its effort to bring

Wal-Mart to Pagosa Springs. Lucero then read from a prepared statement. “We have been asked by many members in the community to take a position on the proposed coming of Wal-Mart to Pagosa Springs,” Lucero began. “As is commonly the case with any large shocks to the economic system, the coming of a new Wal-Mart to a given community is accompanied by a multitude of different impacts on different individuals and on the local government.” Lucero then spoke of the financial struggles of Archuleta County claiming that, while Wal-Mart may not solve those problems, it would create a significant revenue stream. He continued, asserting that facts from various experts could be pitted against each other, but that the key variable in any situation is community. Lucero also encouraged the town to attempt to mitigate impacts consistent with the values of the community. Whiting said he agreed with many of Lucero’s comments, but said that the county has no legal standing in the matter and making a decision so soon, on such a large project, with so little input solicited, was “gratuitous.” After Lucero had Wadley reread his motion, it was passed 2-1, with Whiting as the dissenting vote. randi@pagosasun.com

were in close quarters in the park. Many photographs from the ’50s and ’60s show bears coming up to cars, putting their head in the window to be fed. Between 19311969 there was an annual average of 48 bear-inflicted human injuries at Yellowstone. The lesson, of course, is: bears are wild animals meant to be wild. Lewandowski explained that this time of year through November, people can expect to spot more bears. It’s eating season, and the bears are eating around the clock, around 20,000 calories a day, to prepare for hibernation. “They need a lot of food. They need to eat, and if there’s easy pickings, just like any other critter or human, they’ll go for the easy meal,” Lewandowski said, adding, “We want them to go out to the wild to find food.” Since bears have a very keen sense of smell, more so than dogs, when they smell food, they will go for it, even if it involves scurrying through a pet door or climbing through an open window. Lewandowski recommends various proactive steps residents can take to help keep bears away from their homes and encourage the bears to go back to the forest to forage for food. • Take down bird feeders. “They know what bird feeders are, and they provide a big reward. They will see it, destroy it and, unfortunately,

a lot of bears will get into trouble and have to put down,” Lewandowski said. He suggests hanging flowers or putting out a bird bath if one wishes to attract birds. • When cooking and eating strong smelling foods, especially meat, take the trash (skin, bones and whatever will not be eaten) and instead of throwing it in the garbage can, stick it in a bag and put it in the freezer. The morning of trash pickup, stick it in the garbage can. • Keep garbage cans in a garage, shed or some secure location until the morning of pickup. “Bears figure out what day trash day is,” Lewandowski said, adding that he recommends people periodically wipe their garbage cans out with some pneumonia. • Make sure the garage door is closed. Because the garage is often where the trash, pet food and freezer is, it’s a desirable place for a bear to enter. It is also not too hard for a bear to enter a house through the garage. • Keep bottom floor windows of the house closed, especially when cooking. • If you have plum or apple trees, pick the fruit before ripe and take fallen fruit from the ground. In the case of bear contacts, problem bears in a neighborhood or with information concerning people feeding bears, call the Parks and Wildlife area office at 247-0855. lindsey@pagosasun.com

Bears n "ontin'e) from front

speak of a neighborhood bear, to hear of a bear sighting upon getting to work. Stories abound of seeing a bear in the front yard or garage. Some people might even share the story of walking in on a bear eating their birthday cake. However, this lack of fear and respect for the bear is not healthy for either bear or human. Joe Lewandowski, public information specialist for the Southwest Region of the Colorado Department of Parks and Wildlife, reported that during the month of July four bears were killed after being struck by vehicles. During this same time, another four bears in the Pagosa area had to be captured and relocated. If people are encouraging bears to come around to be photographed, or for some other reason, Lewandowski has a message for them. “If someone knows of someone intentionally feeding bears, call us, because it is illegal and it is very dangerous,” Lewandowski said, adding, “You are setting a bear up to be euthanized.” The history of the grizzly bear in Yellowstone National Park is a prime example of what can happen when the gap between people and bears disappears. Though Yellowstone park management officially prohibited handfeeding bears in 1902, bears and humans

PAWSD deals with water quality, proposes project By Lindsey Bright Staff Writer

It was at the end of last month that some people started to notice something in the water from Lake Hatcher provided by the Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District water system. There was a smell, and a taste some described as “moldy” or “musty.” According to PAWSD Special Projects Manager Renee Lewis, in late July, Lake Hatcher experienced an, “excessive algae growth event.” She noted that this is not an algae bloom, but a much less severe event. Lewis explained that, during summer months, typically starting in the beginning of June depending on weather, PAWSD begins to test algae levels in Lake Hatcher. Throughout the summer, PAWSD continues to test the levels once a week. During this particular incident, the water algal level was tested on the second Friday in July and was reported at 50 cells per milliliter. That following Monday, the water was tested again and the levels of algae were at 500 cells per milliliter. The reason for this exponential jump in algae, Lewis explained, was the abnormally low level of water at Lake Hatcher, lack of circulation in the lake and the hot and sunny weather being experienced during that time. In addition, Lewis explained that, due to monsoonal rains, runoff from yards in the area increased the nutrients and nitrates in the reservoir.

Once PAWSD staff discovered the higher levels of algae, they mechanically distributed a, “minute amount of copper sulfate into the reservoir,” Lewis said. She clarified that the amount of copper sulfate was less than the industry standard, so the application would not stress the fish in the lake. “It’s a fine balance, managing a reservoir. It is its own ecosystem,” Lewis said. The way the copper sulfate works is by attaching itself to the algae and then the algae settles out. After this, the water is filtered through the PALL filtration system at the Lake Hatcher Water Filtration Plant. The water, she adds, is and has been safe to drink. Lewis stated that, on some level, an excessive algae growth event occurs nearly every year, and it is not unusual for such an occurrence to happen in reservoirs. PAWSD, Lewis stated, has plans for overall changes to infrastructure composition that would, “include fairly consistent feed of fresh water through all the lakes,” and would decrease the chances of excessive algae growth. The first step will be an upgrade to the San Juan Water Treatment plant that will allow the facility to treat water from Lake Forest. “That will then pull water through all the lakes to produce fresh water infusement to all the lakes,” Lewis said. Next, there are plans to convert the current Snowball plant to a pump station for pumping water

from the San Juan River to Village Lake, thereby adding increased fresh water to the reservoir system. A pipeline will be constructed to take the water from the station to the lake. After this is accomplished, the San Juan Water Treatment Plant will be the primary treatment facility in the district and Lake Hatcher water levels could remain higher than at present. Right now, these upgrades are planned to be finished in the next three to four years. In a letter to the editor printed last week, Lisa Kelly expressed concerns regarding the state of PAWSD drinking water. She cited a U.S. Geological Survey report on a study on Midwestern lakes in which lead scientist on the study, Dr. Jennifer Graham, states that, “While tasteand-odor compounds are not toxic, these pungent compounds were always found with cyanotoxins.” In the report, it should be noted, Graham’s quote continues to specify that this was the case, “in the blooms sampled.” Lewis addressed this concern by pointing to the USGS Toxic Substances Hydrology Program issued in an article titled, “Algal Blooms Consistently Produce Complex Mixtures of Cyanotoxins and Co-Occur with Taste-and-Odor Causing Compounds in 23 Midwestern Lakes: Frequently Asked Questions.” That article describes cyanobacteria, commonly referred to as blue-green algae, as a, “natural part of aquatic ecosystems” that commonly occurs at low abundances. The report continues to

Contest set to name county park By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

Archuleta County is holding a contest to name its 120-acre open space park located near the airport. The contest is being held at the suggestion of the county’s Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails (PROST ) commitee and comes as the county prepares to build a road to and parking lot at the site this fall. The park space is intended to be a 120-acre open-space park and will neighbor Renewable Forest Energy’s biomass gasification power plant. For the contest, interested parties can suggest names online, via letter or in person. The names will be judged by PROST members and the top three options (with entrants kept anonymous) given to county commissioners, who will pick a winner. The winning name will be announced at the Sept. 18 BoCC meeting. The person submitting the name chosen for the park will win $100 (contributed personally by the commissioners and County Adminitrator Greg Schulte), as well as a night’s stay at Mountain Landing Guest Quarters (in either a one-bedroom or two-bedroom unit) and a $50 gift certificate to Ski and Bow Rack. The latter two prizes were donated to the cause during public

comment on the item at Tuesday’s BoCC meeting. “We are totally grateful,” Schulte said of the added prizes in a later interview. Schulte said the county wanted the contest to be open to everyone, and decided to keep it anonymous in lieu of restricting county employee participation. Also concerning the park, the board approved rules at Tuesday’s meeting concerning upcoming public use of the site. The rules were drafted by PROST using rules from the town and other parks as templates. The approved rules of the park are as follows: • The park is open from dawn to dusk. • Pack out any trash packed in. • Pets must be leashed. • No overnight camping. • No hunting. • No motorized vehicles or travel. • No open fires, campfires, charcoal or propane grills, or fireworks. • No firewood harvesting. • No discharging of firearms. • No alcohol. While Schulte joked about the park being a “no fun” park, he noted that rules may change as the park is further developed — such as allowing propane grills when picnic tables and the like are installed. Commissioner Michael Whiting said that, while the rules might seem Draconian now, they are fit-

ting for the park in its current state and could be changed later. Audience member Dennis Spence questioned the number of restrictions on the property, stating that he wasn’t sure he would drive to the site to simply park and sit. Schulte said PROST members had thought of several appropriate uses for the park, including hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, and noted that the parking lot would accommodate horse trailers. Schulte added that he believes the park, which is heavily wooded — in conjunction with the countyowned 95 acres located adjacent to U.S. 84 (tentatively planned to be more intensly developed) — would provide a broad spectrum of options for county park users. randi@pagosasun.com

state that some cyanobacteria can produce cyanotoxins which can be harmful to humans and animals. Cyanobacteria may also produce “earthy or musty taste and odor compounds,” which are not toxic. Kelly also sent an e-mail to friends and members of the media stating that PAWSD has agreed to a short-term monitoring program for cyanotoxins in Lake Hatcher, and that she was pushing for this to be done to all water sources on a permanent basis. Lewis clarified that since excessive algae growth events are singular events, PAWSD does test for cyanotoxins during and after the events, but at no other time. lindsey@pagosasun.com

CDC considers, hears comments on proposed Wal-Mart Community Benefits Agreement By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

At Monday night’s meeting of the Pagosa Springs Community Development Corporation every seat was full and, when it was all over, board member Mark Weiler commented, “This was the most people we’ve ever had!” To start the meeting, Muriel Eason, one of the new CDC board members, asked who was there because the five o’clock start time was more convenient, and who was there because of the upcoming negotiations with Wal-Mart concerning a Community Benefits Agreement. She also jokingly asked who was there for the food and reception afterwards; and while there was laughter and a few hands went up, it was obvious why so many people were there. Wal-Mart and a CBA. Udgar Parsons, the other new board member, was unable to attend the meeting due to out-oftown travel, and Eason reminded everyone the CDC still needs to fill three board positions. She then quickly moved on to the main business. “I just want to express my appreciation for Mark Weiler,” Eason began, “who was moved to think that this was an important thing to talk about as a community … It’s a controversial issue in general, but this is a way to bring the community together to actually talk.” She went on to say, “I do think the CDC is the right organization to remain a neutral party on this matter, to listen to all sides of the issue, and to do something reasonable for the community.” Weiler then began by explaining that he and Wal-Mart Representative Josh Phair had not yet set a date for a meeting, but they did plan on the CDC meeting with Wal-Mart representatives before the Aug. 21 design review meeting, to discuss, “what the community can expect with Wal-Mart as a partner.” He then opened the meeting up to thoughts from the community, with the stipulation that everyone be polite. Gary Williams was the first audience member to speak. “I know there has been some debate in the community about the benefits versus the costs of having a Wal-Mart come to town, and my professional experience has been that big projects like this often overpromise what the benefits are.” He did not specify what his professional experience entailed, but Williams did say that his suggestions for things to include in the CBA, “are within the context of: I think Pagosa would be better off if (Wal-Mart) didn’t come.” Several people, including Williams, provided concrete suggestions concerning what should be included in a CBA, while others were sidetracked by their personal opinions concerning Wal-Mart in general. Simon Fuger was the first to question the board’s motives. “Frankly, there are three board members here that have stated publicly they are going to do everything they possibly can to make sure Wal-Mart doesn’t come here.” Fuger questioned the process and the intent of the CDC board in presenting to Wal-Mart a CBA in the form of a laundry list of demands, saying, “If, in the end, the bar is raised so high that it is not economically feasible to put this store here, then certain elements within the community will have won their battle.”

Eason’s reply was, “Our com- stance and read a statement he tect the community from having mitment as the CDC is to remain planned to present to the Board of a blighted, closed store is to have neutral and to be something of County Commissioners the next a guarantee that Wal-Mart would an arbitrator for the community day explaining why he believed the lease it back to the community with Wal-Mart, to take input on BoCC should remain neutral on from the time they vacate it to the what people anticipate the effects the topic of Wal-Mart.

OK, once I knock it over, I should find something to eat inside. This bear, seen on Dutton Drive in Pagosa Lakes, is one of many in Pagosa Country searching for food in residential areas. Precautions should be taken to deny bears opportunities to scavenge in residential areas. See the article on Page 1 in this week’s SUN.

Williams Creek Campground Closed. Anyone driving up Piedra Road has seen this sign posted. Those people passing Williams Creek Campground will see that the campground is indeed closed for the 2012 season. The reason for the closure is hazard tree removal. Now, the campground, to an untrained eye, looks healthy and beautiful. Tall, beautiful spruce, fir and ponderosa pine trees are thick throughout the campground, shading the tables providing a great setting for local and out-of-state campers alike. However, this spring when Recreation Supervisor Paul Blackman for the Pagosa Ranger District walked Williams Creek Campground after snowmelt, it was clear that the campground would have to be closed. There were large trees that had fallen across tables, trees had fallen across trails. With these signs, Blackman told SUN staff in a previous interview that, after recognizing the problem, keeping the campground open for the 2012 season would be too hazardous for campers. In order for the campground to be safe, hundreds of trees first must be cut down and removed from the area. When the closure was announced this spring, Forest Service officials were not sure if all the trees could be cut and removed this year or if the project would extend into next year. That was before the Pagosa Area Biomass Long-Term Stewardship Contract was awarded to J.R. Ford and his Pagosa Land Co. and Renewable Energy LLC. The biomass project will deal with the problem trees at the campground. The reason for the prevalence of hazard trees is an outbreak of Armillaria in the root systems of the trees. As previously reported in The SUN, for over a decade the U.S. Forest Service Pagosa Ranger District has been monitoring and trying to mitigate an outbreak of Armillaria, a fungus which spreads from tree to tree via root systems, ultimately resulting in the decay of the roots. The lack of a root system in many trees creates failures and hazard trees endanger the public. A failure is a green, visibly healthy tree which falls unexpectedly. A hazard tree is a standing tree, either live or dead, which has injuries or defects

that may cause failure and that, by falling, might inflict potential personal or structural damage. These trees cannot be easily detected. “This is good news. It’s a good arrangement and a good deal for the government,” Blackman said of the arrangement with Ford. One of the problems faced by the Pagosa Ranger District had been what to do with the trees once they were felled. Ford will use all the trees. With his equipment, he will use a hydro-cutter to cut down most of the average-diameter trees and chip them on spot. The larger diameter trees will not be chipped, but Ford said that he has made arrangements for two nearby sawmill operators to haul them off. This adds another advantage, Blackman said. In addition to getting rid of the felled trees, the footprint will also be reduced. There will be no need to make skid trails. “Skidding trees can do a ton of damage,” Blackman said. The Forest Service and Ford will both work on the project. The details of the contract have to be negotiated and agreed upon, according to Ford, due to the work taking place in a campground. Ford said that part of the renegotiation for

this project, since it was not part of the original long-term stewardship contract, was that he would not be responsible for all the larger trees, especially those in close proximity to the new restroom facilities at the campground. “We will be involved with preparatory work, mainly felling, of larger diameter trees on site,” Blackman explained. The optimal start date for both the Pagosa Ranger District and Ford is Aug. 15. “We’re very excited to move forward with this project and get the bulk of the project taken care of in one year,” Blackman said. He added that he is confident a portion of the campground will be open next year. However, Blackman also warned that Williams Creek will look dramatically different after the tree removal. “The area will be heavily impacted and will need time to heal,” Blackman said. Due to the fact whole stands of trees will be removed, wind becomes an issue for the remaining trees. The Forest Service will monitor for wind resistance of the remaining tree stands. lindsey@pagosasun.com

K-8 after-school programs at the Ed Center By Lynell Wiggers Special to The SUN

The Archuleta County Education Center is looking forward to another great year in our afterschool programs for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. For the first semester of 2012-13, the program will have a familiar look and some new concepts. Elementary programs will have a flexible schedule. Our objective is to group the students according to grade level for more efficient academic support. We have, however, found that some students and parents prefer

to attend daily. We will be glad to work with specific family needs. Mondays and Wednesdays are designated for kindergarten, first and second grades. Tuesdays and Thursdays target third- and fourthgraders. Scholarships are graciously provided by United Way and concerned individuals in Pagosa Springs. We require a one-time registration fee of $25 to sign up your student. In addition to after-school tutoring, we offer K-4 enrichment programs. Both tutoring and enrichment programs will run from

school dismissal to 5 p.m. Planned activities are: • Cooking Around the World, Mondays. • Art in different cultures, Wednesdays. • Tuesday, Thursday and Friday offerings to be announced when needs are identified. Middle school students are encouraged to attend tutoring on a daily basis. A new addition to the tutoring program will be an improvement to the tutor/ student ratio. The goal is to have a tutor for every two students who are registered. We are seeking high school peer tutors, parents,

retired teachers — anyone who would like to give to our middle school students in a tutoring environment. Middle school will have enrichment activities Friday afternoons only from dismissal to 5 p.m. with Jenna Gregory as the facilitator. She is planning themes, such as: • Babysitters Workshop in the fall and the spring. • Wilderness education. • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) projects. • Cooking. • Drama, and more. Other activities will be scheduled throughout the school year for K-8 students. We will send flyers and announcement home with your child at the end of every month. All after-school activities include a light snack before the activity begins. A $25 annual registration fee is required for all programs. Sorry, no scholarships are available for the enrichment activities at this time. For more information, call the Ed Center at 264-2835 or go to the website at www.archuletacountyedcuationcenter.com. You will be able to register and pay online for all programs. A reminder: we also offer abundant enrichment opportunities for adults — many computer courses, first aid/CPR, Top 10 IRA Mistakes, Spanish for adults, jewelry making, GED test preparation, English as a Second Language (ESL) for adults and more to be slated as the season progresses.

We proudly feature Anderson Windows, America’s most trusted brand.

Liz and Mike Alley named to head United Way Campaign Multiple free tech sessions to hone digital and e-book skills LIBRARY NEWS

By Lisa Jensen

Special to The PREVIEW

Mike and Liz Alley have been appointed United Way Campaign chairs for 2012/2013. Both have been directly involved in community programs during the past 18 years as residents of Archuleta County. Mike’s volunteer work began in his hometown over 40 years ago. He states: “There were no organizations like United Way to guide me with my sharing with regard to who needed assistance, or whether the contributions I made were allocated one hundred-percent to the people who needed help.” Mike moved to Pagosa Springs in 1995 and began working for La Plata Electric Association. His experience with United Way began immediately. LPEA provides its employees with their birthday off if they donate a day’s pay to United Way. Acknowledgment that donations go to pre-qualified community partner agencies have been received in thank you letters to Mike. “I know my money is going where I planned for it to go. I’ve always been very pleased with United Way in Archuleta County for all their work to make this a better community; not only for adults, but children alike,” reads one of those letters. Liz moved to Pagosa Springs in 1994 and immediately began to be involved in early childhood education and to advocate on behalf of families and youth. “I was given so much by this community when I first moved here,” said Liz. “It was a natural progression for me to desire to give back. To be a campaign chair, in my mind, is the top-of-the-line way in which I can be involved.” In harmony with President Kennedy’s timeless statement, “Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country,” the Alleys propose that we ask what we can do for our community partner

agencies. Through United Way’s Archuleta County Advisory Council, and all who give, we can positively impact educational programs that help youth or young adults be prepared for school, stay in school, make better grades, graduate from high school, and attend higher education; continue programs that build self-reliance for families and individuals; and assist health programs that help people access affordable quality health care. Mike and Liz both know many residents of Archuleta County who hold the same values as United Way: to give, to advocate and to volunteer. They’d like to encourage others to contribute to the Archuleta County Campaign and experience the benefits of what we can all accomplish by giving and to be part of improving the lives of people in Archuleta County.

EXTENSION VIEWPOINTS

Thanks to all for a great county fair By Liz Haynes SUN Columnist

On behalf of the CSU Extension– Archuleta County Office, I would like to extend our sincerest appreciation to the Archuleta County Commissioners, Archuleta County Fair Board and Livestock Committee, Archuleta County employees, local 4-H members and their families, 4-H club leaders and project leaders, fair judges and superintendents, San Juan Mounted Patrol, Mountain View Homemakers, Master Gardeners and hundreds of dedicated volunteers who dedicate themselves to making the annual Archuleta County Fair a tremendous success. We had a wonderful representation of competitive exhibitors in both 4-H and open classes and we appreciate your involvement and support. We hope that everyone involved in the various competitions and shows enjoyed the opportunities provided at the fair. To the livestock buyers, we appreciate your investment in our local 4-H livestock members. The incentive and encouragement you provide our 4-Hers yields lifelong lessons in our ranching traditions. The support of the community during the Livestock Show and Chuck Wagon Dinner enables our 4-H members to further their education and experiences within and beyond their 4-H career. As for the commercial vendors who feed and entertain us, we are grateful to have such diverse, highquality offerings for our fairgoers. Sponsorship, resources and in-kind donations from local businesses and organizations allow us to meet the mission of the Archuleta County Fair. Your support, contributions, leadership and commitment to the fair is greatly appreciated. To all of the folks who visited the 2012 Archuleta County Fair, we hope you enjoyed being part of the Archuleta County ranching and farming legacy, learned more about our great agricultural heritage and were inspired by the rich talent and skills of our local residents showcased in the events, exhibits and competitions.

Annual meeting and Fall Forest Forum

With informed and appropriate management, private family forest owners can maintain a sustainable, healthy and productive forest. Whether you are managing your forest for wildlife habitat, recreation, livestock grazing or timber production, you’ll want to come see the latest in forest management. Don’t miss your opportunity to engage with local and regional forestry professionals as they discuss and share their expertise. Mark your calendar for Thursday, Aug. 23, from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. for the Fall Forest Forum and annual meeting of the San Juan Conservation District. The event will be held at the Extension Office on the Archuleta

County Fairgrounds. The day-long educational event is free, but you must R.S.V.P. with the San Juan Conservation District, 731-3615, to ensure there are lunches for all who attend. The program includes an update on the San Juan Conservation District’s annual accomplishments, a tour of J.R. Ford’s biomass project site, a field demonstration of how to fell a tree, chainsaw safety, learning how to be Firewise, an update on the forest on public lands and tips on managing your private lands. Advice and helpful tips for managing your forested land will be provided by the following sponsors: San Juan Conservation District, Wildfire Mitigation Professionals Association, J.R. Ford, Firewise of Southwest Colorado, U.S. Forest Service and Colorado State Forest Service. Here are the top five reasons tomanage the density of your forested land: 1. Improve forest health. Well managed forests are more resistant to diseases and insect damage such as mountain pine beetle or dwarf mistletoe. 2. Fire safety. Thinning overstocked or high density forests will allow a potential high severity crown fire to drop to the ground as a low severity fire that can be suppressed more readily with less damaging effects to soil, water and plant resources. Consider creating strategic “fuel breaks” or “defensible space” to protect your home and property. 3. Wildlife habitat. Thinning overstocked or high density forests will allow sunlight and precipitation to reach the ground and encourage herbaceous cover, such as grasses, wildflowers, and shrubs, for birds and other wildlife to consume. Additionally, creating habitat for wildlife forage can make your garden safer from wildlife damage. 4. Protect water and soil. Healthy forests keep soils from eroding and protect our water quality. The loss of vegetation caused by a wildfire will cause soils to erode and reduce the forest’s ability to retain snowpacks for a more sustained runoff in the spring and summer. Eroding soils can also pollute our water supply with sediments and excess nutrients. 5. Save money. The costs of preventing fire damage outweigh the costs of fire suppression, property loss and post-fire rehabilitation in the case of a wildfire.

West Nile Virus

Two equine cases of West Nile Virus (WNV) had been diagnosed in Colorado as of July 18, 2012. The cases that were recently diagnosed represent the first reported cases of West Nile Virus this year. The WNV positive tests were submitted from horses in Fremont and Weld counties; both horses are currently being treated for symptoms related to WNV.

West Nile virus is a disease that threatens the health of humans, horses and other animals. “Late summer and early fall have traditionally been the time of year when we are most likely to see WNV cases reported in horses,” said Colorado State Veterinarian Dr. Keith Roehr. “In the past few years there have been very few reported equine cases of WNV in Colorado; it is difficult to project how many WNV cases we may see in the coming months.” The transmission of the disease varies from year to year and depends on a number of factors, including mosquito numbers. The West Nile virus can be carried by infected birds and then spread locally by mosquitoes that bite those birds. The mosquitoes can then pass the virus to humans and animals. Infected horses may display symptoms including head tilt, muscle tremors, stumbling, lack of coordination, weakness of the limbs or partial paralysis. If horses exhibit clinical signs consistent with WNV, it is important for horse owners to contact their veterinarians in order to confirm the diagnosis through laboratory testing. Horse owners should consult their private practicing veterinarians to determine an appropriate prevention strategy for their horses. Vaccines have proven to be a very effective prevention tool. Horses that have been vaccinated in past years will need an annual booster shot. However, if an owner did not vaccinate their animal in previous years, the horse will need the two-shot vaccination series within a three to six week period. In addition to vaccinations, horse owners also need to reduce the mosquito populations and their possible breeding areas. Recommendations include removing stagnant water sources, keeping animals inside during the bugs’ feeding times, which are typically early in the morning and evening, and using mosquito repellents. For complete and updated information concerning new WNV equine case information including numbers and location of test positive horses visit: • http://www.fightthebitecolorado.com./ • http://www.cdphe.state.co.us/ dc/zoonosis/wnv/.

SENIOR NEWS

Seniors: Beware of timeshare resale scams By Musetta Wollenweber SUN Columnist

If you are looking to sell or rent that ski lodge condo, lakefront condo or other expensive timeshare property you really don’t get to use much anymore, proceed with caution: timeshare scammers can ruin your whole investment. Trouble begins with a phone call or e-mail offer to help you navigate the sometimes murky timeshare waters. Renting and reselling properties, they say, is their stock and trade. Be assured of a surprisingly quick sale, a vibrant rental market. Now, there is a $2,500 fee up front, but that covers the listing service, advertising and closing costs. And don’t forget: You’re not getting any value out of the property now anyway. It starts to sound good, but you’re not sure. Then the timeshare scammer calls back, ramping up the pitch with a level of urgency. He has three interested buyers already lined up for a property like yours. In other words, act now! If you do, the excitement quickly wanes. Having provided a credit card to cover the up-front fees — from a few hundred to several thousand dollars — you find yourself adrift. Calls once returned so promptly now go unanswered. E-mails bounce back as undeliverable. You’re starting to get the message. Victimized owners have also reported a second brand of timeshare scammer: fake fraudrecovery outfits that promise to get your money back. If you are contacted about selling or renting your timeshare: • Be wary of up-front fees. • Read the fine print of any sales contract or rental agreement. • Check the company out with your Better Business Bureau. Report suspicious inquiries and activities to ElderWatch, a program with the Colorado Attorney General and the AARP Foundation, (800) 222-4444.

Art show

We have been enjoying the photo display by Navy photographer Rob Gaston and now it’s time to enjoy our next artist’s work. Who will it be? Do you have photos, paintings, etc. you would like to display on our dining room walls for the senior diners to enjoy? If so, contact me at 264-2167.

If you would like to share your adventures with others, I’d love to hear from you. Please call me at 264-2167.

Reservations

You need to make reservations to dine at Cafe Fox. I have received notification from the San Juan Basin Area Agency on Aging requiring a reservation system be in place in an effort to avoid waste; so take time to plan ahead just a wee bit, folks. You’ll now find we have set out about a week’s worth of reservation lists enabling you to sign up in advance. If you are already at Cafe Fox, see Rob at the front desk and he’ll help you with your reservation, or call by 9 a.m. the morning you would like to join us; if we are unable to make it to the phone, dial Ext. 27 and leave a message. For you computer savvy folks we have added a link to our website; please visit www.archluetacounty.org, select County Departments and then Senior Services and you’ll see the Meal Reservation link. Please do not ask to sign up more than a week in advance; we will not be able to accommodate your request. We also find that seniors have darn busy schedules and change often, so reserving a seat more than a week in advance could create no-shows, putting us right back to the problem of waste.

VA study deals with prostate cancer treatment options By Raymond Taylor SUN Columnist

A major federal study led by the Department of Veterans Affairs found no difference in survival between men with early-stage prostate cancer who had their prostate surgically removed and those who were simply watched by their doctors, with treatment only as needed to address symptoms if they occurred. “The study results have significant implications for a great number of Veterans in our care,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki. “This study is a prime example of how VA’s research program is advancing medical knowledge in areas that are top priorities for veterans.” The findings appeared in the July 19 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. “Our data show that observation provides equivalent length of life, with no difference in death from prostate cancer, and avoids the harms of early surgical treatment,” said lead author Dr. Timothy Wilt. Wilt is with the Center for Chronic Disease Outcomes Research at the Minneapolis VA Medical Center, and the University of Minnesota. The randomized trial involved 731 men and took place at 44 VA sites and eight academic medical centers nationwide. Eligible trial participants voluntarily agreed beforehand that to take part in the study they would be randomly assigned to one treatment or the other. Known as the Prostate Cancer Intervention Versus Observation Trial, or PIVOT, the study was conducted and funded by VA’s Cooperative Studies Program, with additional funding from the National Cancer Institute and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The first trial group had a radical prostatectomy — surgical removal of the walnut-sized prostate. Surgery is generally

performed in the belief it can lower the risk of prostate cancer spreading and causing death. Evidence had been lacking as to the treatment’s effectiveness, especially for men whose cancer was initially detected only on the basis of a blood test — the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test. In most cases, these tumors are not large enough to be felt during a doctor’s exam and do not cause any symptoms. The second trial group was the “observation group.” In this approach, physicians generally do not provide immediate surgical or radiation therapy. Rather, they carefully follow men and provide treatments aimed at relieving symptoms, such as painful or difficult urination, if and when the cancer progresses and causes bothersome health problems. The trial followed patients between eight and 15 years. When Wilt and colleagues analyzed the results, they found no difference in death rates between the two groups, either from any cause whatsoever or specifically from prostate cancer. In terms of quality of life for men in the study, the surgery group experienced nearly double the rate of erectile dysfunction‚ 81 percent versus 44 percent — and roughly three times the rate of urinary incontinence — 17 percent versus 6 percent. Bowel dysfunction was similar between the groups, 12 percent versus 11 percent. Dr. Robert A. Petzel, Under Secretary for Health, said the trial “provides crucial information that will help physicians and patients make informed decisions on how best to treat prostate cancer, which affects so many veterans who rely on VA health care.” Dr. Joel Kupersmith, VA’s Chief Research and Development Officer, added: “This trial, the largest ever comparing these two treatments, provides definitive evidence on a subject that affects

millions of Veterans and all men above a certain age.” While PIVOT found no difference in overall mortality or prostate cancer deaths between the two groups for men who had cancers with a PSA value of 10 or less, the authors say there may be a survival benefit to surgery for men with PSA scores above 10, or other clinical results indicating more aggressive, higher-risk tumors. Only about one in five men in PIVOT had tumors classified as high-risk. Wilt said this proportion is representative of U.S. men with an early-stage prostate cancer diagnosis based on PSA testing and follow-up biopsy. Prostate cancer is usually slow-growing, and most men with PSA-detected prostate cancer do not die from the disease or develop health problems related to it, even if it is not treated with surgery or radiation.

CHAMBER NEWS

Chamber Strategic Plan: Advocacy for business members By Mary Jo Coulehan SUN Columnist

For the past several weeks, I’ve been unveiling the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors Strategic Plan that was developed in May of 2012. We have lofty plans for this working document and will strive to include businesses, other organizations and individuals to help us accomplish the goals. The first priority mentioned last week was to help guide our community to a stable year-round economy, where tourism is one of at least three economic factors. This week we will talk about advocacy for business members. Advocacy comes in a variety of forms, and while the Chamber has chosen not to become involved in political advocacy, we do want to make our members more aware of issues that affect our businesses and community. We will create a process for the board of directors to prepare position statements. We will survey the membership for clout and leverage where issues are concerned. As mentioned last week, we will continue to investigate a way to give owners of businesses in town, who live in Archuleta County, a voice or a vote in the Town of Pagosa Springs. We will begin to provide to our members e-mail updates and information provided by CACI (Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry) — the voice of business at the capitol level. They have a comprehensive list of bills before the House and Senate that affect businesses

on matters from taxes to health care. We will continue to survey our membership on issues facing our community and report those findings back to town and county entities so they can better hear the voice of the business community. Each of these priorities will take effort not only from the Chamber board, but also the community. We would be happy to hear what other organizations, businesses or individuals have to say or get them involved on subcommittees. We are encouraged by efforts to eliminate duplicitation by other organizations. We would like to see how we can spearhead more efforts to consolidate similar tasks and help continue to move our community in a positive, forward direction.

Social marketing

In the second phase of our Business Bites Social Marketing series, we will deal with how to work with FaceBook to offer deals and discounts and sign up friends. Once you have set up a FaceBook page, how do you use it to the best business advantage? On Tuesday, Aug. 21, at noon, we will have several successful business owners give examples of how they have used FaceBook to enhance their business and reward their fans. It’s fine if you set up an account, but if you don’t utilize it, it doesn’t do your business any good. Find out how, with some simple steps, you can increase your friend base and potentially generate more business. The cost to attend the short session is $7 for Chamber members and $10 for non-members and includes lunch. The class will be held at the Chamber of Commerce conference room.

On Thursday, Aug. 30, the Chamber will host a more extensive training class about social marketing. We will offer a three-hour course on how to set up a business FaceBook page and how to integrate FaceBook with your website and blog. Marcy Mitchell, owner of MTECH Internet Marketing, will be our facilitator. Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptops. The course will be held at the Ross Aragon Community Center from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and the cost is only $25 for Chamber members and $30 for non-members. This includes the training as well as breakfast items and snacks. Please R.S.V.P. for either session so we can make sure we have enough room and enough food. For more information or to reserve your space, contact the Chamber at 264-2360.

Upcoming events

The ducks are coming down the San Juan River for the annual Knights of Columbus Duck Race. The festivities will take place Saturday in Town Park. The fun begins with games and a food court beginning at 11:30 a.m. Prize drawings begin at 12:30 p.m. and the ducks take to the river at 3. The first place duck awards the winner $1,000; second place gets $500, third place $250. Duck tickets are $5 and you get the added benefit of trying to find your duck floating down the river. It is a riot watching people watch the ducks, hoping theirs is the winner. Tickets for the ducks are available at the Chamber, at the event and from Knights of Columbus members. You need not be present to win, but it sure is fun if you are there

Business news Don’t forget to sign up for a Maximizing Your Membership class. The next one will be held on Monday, Aug. 27, at 11:30 a.m. at the Chamber conference room. Lunch is included in this free business session which covers ways that the Chamber can help your business and how you can take better advantage of your membership benefits. Call the Chamber to reserve a spot. The next SunDowner Business After Hours will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 22, at Old Town Market. Chamber members and invited guests are welcome to attend. You will receive your e-vite next week. Look for it in your inbox. We have one member to welcome back to the Chamber this week — the Pagosa Trail Riders. We have so many people asking about trails for ATVs and information that we are grateful to have the knowledge and maps that the Trail Riders provide. The Trail Riders is a club that encourages ATV riders to join their group and support the education of responsible ATV/OHV use. They arrange group trips and love the trails of southwest Colorado. For more information, contact Ronnie Zaday at 731-3971. Our renewals this week include Pam Barsanti, our newest Gem Sponsor. Don’t know what a sponsorship level is or what benefits go with the various sponsorship levels? Contact Jan at the Chamber and have her show you how the various advantage sponsorship levels can work for you and your business. Other renewing members are the Aspen Moose Restaurant, Reach for the Peaks and Mountain Waters Rafting.

Some lodging owners unimpressed by tax increase proposal By Jim McQuiggin Staff Writer

Pagosa Springs Community Development Corporation board member Mark Weiler presented his proposal for a 2-percent increase in the town’s lodgers tax to the Pagosa Springs Town Council on July 26, his fourth presentation of that idea in half as many weeks, indicating an exact use of additional revenue for the second time. The proposal was first presented at the July 9 CDC meeting, with presentations made later for the Town Tourism Committee and the Pagosa Springs Lodgers Association. During those meetings, Weiler had said that additional tax revenues from the increase would be split evenly between the TTC and the CDC, but did not specify how that money would be used. At Thursday’s council meeting, Wei-

ler again suggested that the TTC’s portion would be used to fund an athletic event hosted by the area. Saying that the events would center on the downtown area and scheduled for “the shoulder season” (i.e. months when tourism numbers are at their lowest, most notably April and October), Weiler asserted that the events would significantly boost lodging during those down times. At the July 24 Lodgers Association meeting, both Weiler and event promoter Morgan Murri provided preliminary details for a proposed event that would, as they claimed, attract international attention due to both its scope and the size of the “purse” — prize money offered for the winners. Directly following the meeting, Weiler told SUN staff that he was looking at securing around $75,000 in funding for purses and promo-

Club 20 forum considers health care in Pagosa Country By Lindsey Bright Staff Writer

Is this a serious problem? Can I afford care? Will I get quick, efficient, competent care? These are questions the majority of Archuleta County citizens ask themselves when an ailment befalls themselves or a loved one. What is the range of personal responsibility? What services should local health care providers offer? How can the town and the county help improve the local health care system? These are the serious questions that various community members and leaders discussed during the Club 20 “Sustainable Health Care Solutions” health forum held last Thursday afternoon at the Ross Aragon Community Center. The goals listed at the beginning of the session were: identify health care strengths and weaknesses in your community, identify commonalities in health care issues across Western Colorado communities, connect communities having best practices in health care with other Western Slope communities experiencing challenges, and continue dialogue towards experiencing challenges. The participants broke into three groups to discuss the topics of access, quality, personal responsibility and cost in terms of what these mean in context of the Pagosa community. According to the Club 20 Powerpoint presentation, each

of these topics are key elements in a sustainable health care system. For Archuleta County, in particular, cost is a very important issue, as 21.8 percent of the residents are uninsured, compared with 15.7 percent in all of Colorado. However, Pastor Don Ford commented on the lack of socioeconomic diversity amongst the participants at the discussion, in particular, the lack of participants from the lower economic bracket. Ford noted that, though 42 percent of residents in Archuleta County are either uninsured or on Medicaid or Medicare, those involved in the discussions were in the middle to upper class bracket. Participants at each table discussed the key elements, then shared their discussions with the larger group. After the meeting, Club 20 personnel were to compile a summary from the notes of this meeting then will work to identify themes regarding health care throughout Western Slope communities. lindsey@pagosasun.com

tion, with $25,000 allocated for prize money. Last week, Weiler said that, for the moment, he and Murri would be focusing on a three-day event for April 2013, saying that competitions would involve cross-country running, mountain biking and road biking. Weiler added that an October event would be addressed after the pieces were in place for an April event. As with his previous presentations, Weiler introduced last Thursday’s pitch with a tourism-themed video (for Alberta, Canada) as a means to illustrate his vision for what a lodgers tax increase could ultimately bring to the area. “Inviting people to our community who have the financial resources to enjoy the hotels and restaurants,” Weiler said, explaining the reason for showing the video, then asking how many council members were aware of the Pro-Cycling event. “This is downtown money,” Weiler said. “Some of the guys that will compete in this, their bicycles are $10,000 a piece. So, what we want to do, we want to try and attract that socio-economic level of extreme sports competitor.” “You’re part of the fantasizing phase, here,” Weiler concluded. “So, when we come to you in the future, remember this ... time-frame, April and October, you have to compete in both, substantial prize money if you win. We hope to be the best in the United States, where we’ll have world-class athletes ... for both running and biking.” No council members asked Weiler to elaborate on his plan.

However, Weiler did not mention a proposed increase in the town’s lodgers tax. However, that issue was on the minds of Lodgers Association members in the audience. Towards the end of the midmonth meeting, lodge owner Valerie Green read a prepared statement opposing Weiler’s proposal. “I represent the lodgers,” Green read. “Therefore, when I tell you I am appalled at your suggestion to raise lodging tax by two percent or any amount, I speak for everyone. “Your idea and the promotion of Morgan Murri’s wonderful organization is admirable,” Green continued. “We have supported him and his charity since its inception, and will continue to do so, but on our own terms. “We are struggling to maintain our businesses here in Pagosa Springs,” Green concluded. “We have reduced our prices, given special deals in an attempt to encourage more guests. A tax increase would cripple us. “I beseech you to desist with this poorly conceived idea to raise money through lodging taxes. There are many ways for you to obtain funds for your projects, through government and charitable sources, using grant writers and the like.” Making the rounds to present his appeal for revenues that would fund events and the CDC, Weiler has predicated his idea on the notion that the additional money would ultimately result in increased tourism, especially during those months when few visitors make their way to Pagosa Country.

However, members of the industry that would be most affected by that tax increase — the lodging owners — are not convinced that Weiler’s proposal is sound and, as Green presented, view the suggested tax hike as a, “poorly conceived idea.” jim@pagosasun.com

A20 — The Pagosa Springs SUN — Thursday, August 9, 2012

Colorado lawmakers implore congressional leaders to reach balanced budget deal Seven members of Colorado’s congressional delegation have urged the leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate to actively work on passing a comprehensive, balanced deficit reduction package to avoid the blunt automatic spending cuts — known as sequestration — established by the Budget Control Act of 2011. The bipartisan letter’s signatories are Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet and Representatives. Diana DeGette, Ed Perlmutter, Mike Coffman, Jared Polis and Scott Tipton. The letter reads as follows: Dear Mr. Reid, Mr. McConnell, Mr. Boehner, and Ms. Pelosi: We write to urge the leadership of both parties to work together to allow consideration of a bipartisan deficit reduction plan on the House and Senate floors before the end of the year. Such a plan should improve our nation’s long-term fiscal condition while averting the automatic, across-the-board spending cuts, known as sequestration, which are of particular concern to communities throughout Colorado. During last year’s debate regarding the national debt limit, congressional dysfunction threatened to force the federal government to default on its bills, creating a political emergency that roiled the markets. The Budget Control Act (BCA) was subsequently enacted to resolve the impasse. The BCA cut federal spending by more than $900 billion over 10 years, and also created the automatic spending cuts in both defense and non-defense spending that we now face at the end of the year. Members of both parties intentionally designed the sequestration to be a painful last

resort in order to spur a bipartisan congressional agreement on a balanced deficit-reduction plan. Congress should act expeditiously to institute a comprehensive deficit-reduction plan that cuts spending, responsibly reforms and strengthens entitlement programs and overhauls the tax code. We need a clear, bipartisan and well-considered plan for addressing the deficit that allows us to stave off sequestration and stabilize the federal budget. There should be no higher priority for this Congress than crafting a bipartisan deficitreduction plan so we can bring it to an up-or-down vote before the end of the year and avoid the blunt automatic spending cuts as part of the BCA sequester. We urge you to instruct the relevant congressional committees to begin working on such a comprehensive and bipartisan effort and allow time for the plan to be considered on the House and Senate floor. We are at a pivotal moment in our nation’s history. Our Colorado constituents are demanding that their elected officials live up to the responsibilities of their office. If we join together across party lines and enact a comprehensive plan to put our nation back on sound fiscal footing, we can restore economic confidence and position the country for another generation of global economic leadership. Failure to do so could have equally negative consequences for our nation. We urge you to make the time available for an up or down vote before the end of the year on a balanced deficit-reduction solution and look forward to working with you to resolve our current budgetary impasse to help ensure the future economic health of the United States of America.”

Town, county to work on political sign regulations By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

A work session to deal with the issue of political signs, involving both the Pagosa Springs and Archuleta County planning commissions, scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 1, was cancelled at the last minute because, said Town Planner James Dickhoff, not enough delegates were able to attend. At issue is the need to provide consistency between the town and the county (as well as any other areas, such as that controlled by the Pagosa Lakes Property Owners Association) when it comes to how the various governing bodies regulate the display of political signs during a campaign. A reminder on the official website of the Town of Pagosa Springs, addressed to political candidates and supporters, reads, “With the current political season underway, and heating up for the impending primary and general elections, the Town of Pagosa Springs reminds residents of the regulations governing display of political signs within town boundaries.” These regulations are spelled out in section 6.12.2(G)(1) of the Sign Code enacted by the Town Council of Pagosa Springs, “Signs six square feet or smaller may be displayed for up to 45 days before the sponsored political event or election, and must be removed no more than three days following the event or election. Only one sign per candidate per lot is allowed and shall be placed on private property with permission. Signage within the right-of-way [the area between a property line and the road or

sidewalk] is prohibited.” The next section of the sign code states that anyone who wishes to display a political sign larger than six square feet would be required to go through the town’s review and approval process, and obtain a permit. While those who display political signs less than six square feet in size are exempt from the need to obtain a permit, they are still required to conform to all other aspects of the Sign Code, including such prohibitions as no inflatable figures, shapes or mascots; no search lights or beacons; and no “flashing signs with lights or illumination that flash, move, rotate, scintillate, blink, flicker, vary in intensity, vary in color, or use intermittent electrical pulsations.” There are also limits as to how high a sign can be or how close signs can be to the corner of a property if the lot is at an intersection. These regulations are designed to address safety concerns, to limit distractions for motorists and pedestrians, and to avoid blocking a driver’s view of oncoming traffic. Anyone with questions regarding the sign code within town limits is encouraged to call James Dickhoff at 264-4151, extension 225. The sign code for the rest of Archuleta County is, in some ways, less strict than the town’s. Section 7.1.7.16 of the county code explains that the total area of a political sign can be up to 16 square feet (instead of just six), the sign can be erected 60 days prior to the election (instead of just 45), and the sign doesn’t have to be removed for seven days after the election (instead of three).

Card of Thanks Habitat Ha b i t a t f o r Hu m a n i t y o f Archuleta County would like to give a great big thank you to the staff, board members and parents of Seeds of Learning who volunteered with us this past Saturday. A special thanks goes out to Deb Jennings for working

with us to plan the Team Build Day. The day was a huge success; thank you all for giving your hearts and hands to this community. If you would like more information about Habitat for Humanity of Archuleta County and how you can sign up your business or club for a Team Build Day, please call 264-6960.

However, the county’s sign code is slightly confusing on this point, and this may have been one of the things that Wednesday’s joint town/county work session planned to address, because later sections of the county code appear to contradict, or at least elaborate on the above mentioned regulations. Section 7.7.8.1 requires political signs for “agricultural and residential uses: a maximum area of six (6) square feet and a maximum height of five (5) feet” while the next section requires political signs for “commercial, industrial and non-residential uses: a maximum area of thirty-two (32) square feet and a maximum height of eight (8) feet.” Section 7.7.8.3 reaffirms the sixty-day time limit for erecting a political sign before an election, but then states that it “shall be removed within ten (10) days following the appropriate election.” There are several similarities between the town and the county sign codes. The county also allows political signs to be exempt from the permitting process, while still requiring them to follow all the general rules that apply to other types of signs. These prohibitions are similar to those expressed in the town’s sign code and include no flashing, animated or moving signs; no inflatable freestanding signs or tethered balloons; and no pennants, banners, flags or character likenesses. However, in other instances, the county’s sign code is even more restrictive than that of the town. The county does not allow roof signs, whereas the town will allow signs to hang from a roof as long as they do not extend above the roof line. The county also prohibits signs that emit sound or signs that hang from an awning. While the goal of providing consistency between the two codes

is an admirable one, and will help reduce some confusion over what a citizen can or cannot do with their political signs depending on where their property is located, the issue is whether or not the codes will become more or less restrictive. According to the community plan posted on the official Archuleta County website, “protection of individual property rights is a fundamental legal and philosophical principle of the nation, the State of Colorado, and Archuleta County.” It goes on to state, however, that it “recognizes a common vision … to preserve community character and environmental and scenic qualities, while enhancing economic opportunities and creating a more diverse economy. The plan attempts to strike an appropriate balance between the unrestrained exercise of individual property rights and achieving the common vision.” Add to this tension, between an individual’s property rights and the greater good of the community, the right of an individual to freedom of expression and the right to advocate for whichever political candidate or issue they choose, and it is easy to see how the town and county planning commissions have their work cut out for them. Since the governmental process requires a certain amount of time for debate and public input before any changes to a regulation can be enacted, Dickhoff explained, Aug. 1 was the deadline for both planning commissions to produce any recommendations to their respective governing bodies before the upcoming general election season. The joint work session will likely be rescheduled for some time in September and, perhaps, something can be worked out in time for future election seasons. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

Shamrock Festival Saturday at St. Patrick’s By Sally Neel

Special to The PREVIEW

St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church will hold its annual Shamrock Festival Saturday at the church, located at 225 S. Pagosa Blvd. The festival will begin on the lawn behind the church at 8:30 a.m. with a huge yard sale, bake sale and used book sale. There will be something there for almost anyone looking for a good bargain.

“We don’t want anything left over,” says Fr. Doug Neel, rector of St. Patrick’s, “so we are hoping for great crowds of people to come and pick up some great used items.” The yard sale will end at noon and the tent will be converted into a lovely dining area for the homemade lasagna dinner that will be served by St. Patrick’s Men’s Group at 6 p.m. Tickets for the dinner are $15 and available in the church office. n See Shamrock on next page

Shamrock n continued from previous page

Following the dinner, the drawing for a beautiful, handmade quilt will be held. The queen-sized bed quilt and pillow shams are designed and sewn by women of the church. Raffle tickets (six tickets for $5; 12 tickets for $10) are available at the church office and from church members. Any tickets that have not been sold will be available for purchase during the yard sale. At 4 p.m., cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served outdoors and the silent auction will begin inside the church. The auction will contain some beautiful items such as jewelry, home decorations, antiques, autographed books by local authors, wine, original art, wilderness adventure packages and two, like-new lawn tractors. These beautiful mowers were recently serviced and inspected by professional tractor mechanics. Both feature 48-inch mowing decks, hydrostatic transmissions and two-cylinder V engines. One is a Husqvarna YTH 2448, with a 24 HP Briggs and Stratton engine. The other is a Craftsman DTY 4000, with a 26 HP Kohler engine. Both are available for inspection at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church. “Of course, the most important aspect of the Shamrock Festival, other than enjoying a fun day with friends, is that the proceeds support some very important organizations in our town, ones that truly make a big difference in the lives of our residents. Our church teaches that we, as Christians, are called to serve others. That is why we work so hard to raise funds to support local groups such as Victims Assistance, Hospice Care, Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Youth Center, The Pregnancy Center, the hospital indigent fund, Loaves and Fishes, Pagosa Outreach Connection, the food box ministry and others,” says Fr. Doug. “We sincerely hope that the community will come out to support our efforts. When we all work together, we can truly do great things.” To learn more about the festival, call the church office at 731-5801. The community is invited to come and enjoy a day of fun and festivities.

Book lovers of all ages are invited to the 28th annual Friends of the Library Book Sale, to be held this weekend. The sale for Friends of the Library members (you can easily become one) will open tomorrow evening, Friday, Aug. 10, at 6 p.m. with a potluck buffet before the sale begins. The sale for the general public will be Saturday, Aug. 11 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. The sales will take place at the Ross Aragon Community Center. Dues for a Friends membership are $15 for a single, $25 for a family, or $100 for an individual lifetime membership. Memberships purchased on or before Aug.10 will be for the 2012 preview sale. Any memberships purchased Aug. 11 or after will be good for attendance at the 2013 Friends membership sale. Friends members have traditionally flocked to the “preview sale” to get the first choice of titles. There will be thousands of books available on both days, at true bargain prices. These books are in good condition and will be sold at a small fraction of the original prices. Hardbacks are $2; doft cover and children’s books are

$1. There will be CDs and DVDs available for $2. Audio books will be priced according to the number of discs in the set, and there may be some book sets, rare books or collections that will be priced somewhat higher. Cash or checks will be accepted. There will not be a setup for credit card payments. For your shopping convenience, Friends volunteers will be busy Friday morning sorting books into categories and placing them on clearly-marked tables. This will help you head directly to those books you are most interested in. With the selection ranging from A to Z — adobe architecture to zoo animals — why would you want to miss this opportunity? Avid shoppers in the past have arrived with rolling carts, barrels, large boxes and shopping bags for toting their treasures. There will be bags available for your purchases as well. If you are a Friends member renewing your membership for this sale, or if you would like to join, plan to arrive at 6 p.m. Friday for the potluck and a short (usually under 10 minutes!) annual meeting before the sale begins. You can shop until the doors close at 9 p.m. If you are planning to attend the potluck, call the library, 2642208, to let staff know how many people will be in your party and

what type of food dish you plan to bring to share. Table service and a beverage variety will be provided by the Friends.

the song “Crazy,” written by Willie Nelson. The crowd loved it and as they departed the venue a lady came to me and exclaimed, “We love you, Patsy!” She went on to tell me that when I sang “Wandering” she turned to her husband and said, “She sounds like Patsy Cline.” She encouraged me as she spoke. ”You should do a whole show.” At that moment, I knew I was touching people’s hearts. The show was finally produced last October to benefit the Fred Harman Museum, yielding over $1,000 in donations. The new year approached and another need was brought to our attention. Our steelguitar player, Ted Hockenbury, needed some help with medical bills accumulating during his wife’s bout with cancer. Joe Poynter, our drummer, did much of the groundwork to promote the show. Dan Fitspatrick, our stand-up bass player, Charlie Harmer, our lead guitar player and I donated our time and talents. The show was produced at the Pine Valley Foursquare Gospel Church in Bayfield with over 75 people attending, bringing in donations of over $1,200. My intention is to continue doing the show to serve community needs. When is the next show? The answer is, Monday, Aug.

When asked to be a special guest during western week at Hands on Arts Camp this summer, my answer was, “Yes.” My friend, Lisa Brown, and Ms. Tessie Garcia were on their third week of art classes held at the high school. Lisa knew I had produced a Patsy Cline show and wanted me to educate the children on the life of this Western legend. Of course, I showed up dressed as Patsy, just as I do for my show. Staying in character, I shared with them the year and place I was born. I sang “Walking After Midnight“ and told them it was the first song I sang on national television, winning first place on the Arthur Godfrey Talent Show in New York City. I shared with them some of the hardships I had just being a woman in the music industry. Coming out of character, I told them my name was June Marquez and these tentative students ranging from first to fifth grade had some questions. “How did you start singing?” Well, I said, it started when I was about your age. I was in kindergarten and had a sleepover at my cousin’s house. She had an electronic piano and was taking lessons. I was so intrigued with the keyboard, I begged my mom to get me one for Christmas. At the time, I wasn’t sure what I was asking for, but as I look back, I know my mom made a great sacrifice to buy me something I so wanted. I took lessons for a short time, for it was something we really couldn’t afford, having a family of six girls. In the mid ’70s, we owned a 3.2 bar in Los Arboles, Colo., and every time I learned a new song on my little piano, my mom would have me play and sing for our patrons. Then they would give me money. So, that’s how it all began. I went on to tell the class I’ve been singing here in Pagosa Springs for over 10 years with my friend and mentor John Graves. Some of the children knew who he was. I told them he played piano and Betty White gave him his first job in Hollywood. I told them it was at a play produced by John Graves in 2006, where I was inspired to produce “A Tribute to Patsy Cline.” John asked me to sing a country style song he had written in 1960. There were seven songs he had written and he asked seven local artists to be in his one-act play titled, “ The Empty Bench.” It was in the second part of the production, where each of us performed a sort of variety show. This is when I dressed up as Patsy Cline and sang

‘Chicago’ runs for final weekend at PSCA Special to The PREVIEW

“Give ‘em the old razzle dazzle,” sings Billy Flynn as he describes to his client Roxie Hart how to bamboozle a jury when on trial in the

Broadway musical “Chicago.” For months now, the Thingamajig Theatre Company has been running both “Chicago” and “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” as part of ITS 2012 repertory summer season.

Summer is now coming to an end and so are both shows. The final showing of “Charlie Brown” took place on Sunday, Aug. 5, and the cast has taken down the set for the last time and is now getting ready to excite audiences for the last weekend of “Chicago.” With a much larger cast, theatregoers should be ready to get blown away by the iconic music, sexy costumes and dazzling choreography “Chicago” offers. The musical takes place in the 1920s in the city of its name. It follows the story of Roxie Hart, who is on trial for the murder her boyfriend, Fred Casely. Awaiting her trial, she encounters corrupt characters such as Billy Flynn, her sleazy lawyer who claims to only care about love as his motive for helping poor damsels in distress (is it?), Matron Mama Morton, the women who oversees the Cook County Jail and sets out to squeeze as much money from her “guests.” As her trial date approaches, Billy reinvents Roxie’s persona into a celebrity, gaining fame for her in order to seek out sympathy. The press and citizens of Chicago eat up everything she has to say, believing all the lies that the two of them create to make her look like the victim in the whole situation. With plenty of song and dance to keep the audience enthralled, it’s easy to get swept up in the story and the exhibition that “Chicago” offers. One of the things that makes this play so entertaining is the incredibly diverse and talented cast. Marcelina Chavira, starring as

Special to The PREVIEW

Cool to ¡Caliente!, a concert featuring Jessica Peterson playing the

exciting flute music of the Americas, accompanied by pianists Sally Neel and Harvey Schwartz and percussionist Jeff Heintzleman, takes place at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug.

14, at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts. Advanced tickets for $18 are available by calling 731-7469 or online at www.pagosacenter.org. Tickets at the door are $22. “One day I was listening through flute CDs, searching for something new to play,” recalls Jessica Peterson. “A piece by William Grant Still titled ‘Summerland’ just reached out and grabbed me. The next day I ordered the music. As I got to know the piece, and others by Still, an idea came into my mind: how about a concert of flute music from the New World? I knew I wanted something a little different from the typical flute recital repertoire by U.S. composers. I searched through more and more of the colorful music of the Americas until I found just the pieces I wanted. And so the idea that began with one piece grew into this dynamic

Roxie Hart, definitely brings her own brand of flare to the show. With a cutesy high-pitched voice and a mesmerizing sense of style, she adds an air of attitude that makes her character both lovable and despicable. “Thingamajig did a wonderful job making it their own,” says Marcelina. “While it was very much like the revival, the show still has a different voice which is so interesting to watch and be a part of. It’s been a lot of fun.” Alongside her, as the male lead Billy Flynn, is Thingamajig Artistic Director Tim Moore. His vocal range is impressive and his ability to portray his character leaves the audience wanting more every time. The character is a cocky, selfindulgent individual who’s only interested in making as MUCH money as he can while making a name for himself. Playing Velma Kelly is Fort Lewis graduate Alyse Neubert. Velma is another person in this play who’s looking out for her own best interest, claiming in one of her first

scenes that she doesn’t get or give any advice, and is willing to work with others only when she’s backed into a corner and is desperate. What is truly impressive is not just the effort Neubert put toward building up the character of Velma, but the work she’s put in for the entire season. For months now, she’s been juggling two characters, Velma and Snoopy, in “Chicago” and “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” and she’s the choreographer for both. Her hard work and dedication as the choreographer is nothing short of impressive, as cast members excite and charm the audience with each dance number. Thingamajig Theatre Company’s “Chicago,” directed by Laura Moore and choreographed by Alyse Neubert, concludes its run this week, Aug. 9-12, at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. The show runs two hours and 30 minutes and is appropriate for mature audiences. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door and can be secured by visiting www.pagosacenter.org or calling 731-SHOW.

program, Cool to ¡Caliente! ” Jessica lives in Pagosa, where she makes Nighteagle Native American style flutes. She also writes music books with CDs and currently has 15 in print. We asked Jessica some questions in a recent interview. What do you feel is special about American music? “When you’re talking about music from two continents, there is a great variety of styles. Yet I believe there is a recognizable sound: American music is fresh, energetic and optimistic. To me a lot of it has a great sense of place about it. Sometimes it sounds familiar and intimate, as if you’re sitting on the front porch one summer evening and catch the scent of your favorite flower. Sometimes it sounds unimaginably vast, as if you are flying into the depths of space.” What will you perform in Cool to ¡Caliente!? “A lot of American music has the popular sound and the classical sound mixed together. Astor Piazzolla, one of the composers whose music we’ll be performing in this concert, is an Argentinian composer who created a whole new genre of music called Nuevo Tango by blending together elements from classical, jazz, and folk music. “In this concert you will also hear flute music written by the first African American to have had one of his symphonies played by a major American orchestra. You’ll hear a very popular song written by a sixteen-year-old girl from Mexico who was inspired by hearing a Spanish opera aria. You’ll hear Abraham Lincoln’s favorite tune, Brazil’s first popular urban music, and a gorgeous piece written by a woman flutist and composer whose musical soul was nurtured high in the mountains of Montana. In addition to concert flute, the Native American flute will make a brief appearance, as will a little clay bird ocarina from Washington. The rest of the program will be a surprise.” Jessica comes from a musical family. Her grandmother was an opera singer, as are various aunts and cousins. Her father played clarinet. Her mother, Anita Briggs (formerly Titsworth), is a concert harpist. Anita now splits her time between New York and Pagosa, and the duo play together when she is here. Jessica began performing in high school, playing in a flute and harp duo with Anita here in Pagosa. Later, they played together in New York, including at the Hyde Hall summer music series and the Cyr Center in Stamford. “When I lived in New York working as a production assistant for the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, I was

immersed in music almost every day and every night. But I missed the mountains. It took me 20 years to get back to Pagosa,” says Jessica. “Now I have it all: living here and having wonderful musicians to play with, like Sally, Harvey and Jeff. “Sally Neel is a music teacher and is music director of Curtains Up Pagosa! I’ve gotten to play with Sally quite a bit this past year, both as a duo and with our violin, flute, and piano trio with Heidi Tanner. Sally is a fabulous pianist and a great inspiration to me as I try to match her deep connection with and understanding of this music. “Harvey Schwartz is a music teacher and pianist who volunteers countless hours in the music programs here in Pagosa. He has used his unique approach to the keyboard to develop a program of piano study. Harvey has been a terrific collaborator as we have explored this music together. Every time I rehearse with Harvey, I learn something about music or music history. “Jeff Heintzleman is a sound engineer and percussionist who, fortunately for all of us, has joined our community of musicians and is getting back into playing and performing. Jeff is sensitive to all of the music we are playing and adds so much to the sound. Besides, he gives our shark its teeth; you’ll see what I mean by that at the concert. n See Peterson on next page

Jeff Scroggins and Colorado to perform as part of Summer Concert Series By Paul Roberts

Special to The PREVIEW

Jeff Scroggins and Colorado will perform at the Pagosa Center for the Arts at 7 p.m., Tuesday, August 21 as part of the Summer Concert Series. “Jeff Scroggins and Colorado have a wonderful emotional intensity that immediately grabs the listener,” says renowned bluegrass banjo picker Tony Trischka. “Though well rooted in tradition, they can also stretch the boundaries without taking them to the breaking point.” Jeff Scroggins and Colorado features the banjo playing of Jeff Scroggins. Jeff ’s fiery style and lightning fast licks have earned him many fans worldwide and have left many a first-time listener in

stunned disbelief. Jeff’s son, award- winning mandolinist Tristan Scroggins, is a 17-year-old accomplished songwriter and composer. Tristan and Jeff’s original instrumentals play a large role in the band’s unique and energetic sound. The powerful singing of Greg Blake, who is also a phenomenal bluegrass guitarist, shapes the band’s identity. Annie Savage provides strong vocals and a highly sophisticated fiddler. She is a well-known performer and teacher on the Front Range. Bassist KC Groves is well known on the Colorado music scene. A recording artist and founding member of the popular old-time band Uncle Earl, her singing is an important part of the band’s

The Zikr Dance Ensemble will present “Sacred Spaces” on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 24 and 25, at 7 p.m. at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door and can be purchased by calling 731-7469 or online at www.pagosacenter.org. For the “Sacred Spaces” concert, the Zikr Dance Ensemble will explore a variety of cultural expressions through dance that focus both on certain locations on earth, which have always been known to contain special vibrations, along with sacred dance movements whose design and purpose was to create an experience of transcendence. Master classes from artistic director David Taylor and dancer Jennifer Begley will be offered Saturday, Aug. 25, at the Pagosa Center for the Arts. Each class will be roughly one and a half hours in length, and will cost $20 per class. The classes are open to intermediate to advance students. Taylor will teach a classic ballet class. Begley will teach a “Lyrical” class that fuses modern dance, jazz and ballet. The first class begins at 1 p.m., the second

at 3. Call the Pagosa Center for the Arts to register. Registration is limited. Begley was born in Manila, Philippines. Her early training began with Metropolitan Academy of Dance and International Ballet School (Denver), and later with American Ballet Theatre (NYC) and The San Francisco Conservatory of Dance. Upon graduation from high school in 2007, she joined Ballet Ariel in Denver, where she danced for four seasons. There, her principal roles included the lead in La Vivandiere, the waltz variation in Les Sylphides, Sapphire Fairy in Sleeping Beauty, the Sugar Plum Fairy in The Nutcracker, Carlotta Grisi in Pas De Quatre, Kitri in Don Quixote, Figs of My ... And Storm choreographed by Gregory Gonzales, Gamzatti in La Bayadere and the original role of Molly Brown in the ballet Avoca, which was created for her by Ilena Norton and assisted by Patricia Renzetti. In 2009 she joined Zikr Sacred Dance Ensemble and, in 2010, the role of Apsara was created for her by Zikr artistic director David Taylor. Jennifer also recently completed her first season with Dawson-Wallace Dance Project. Taylor has been professionally involved in the Colorado dance community for the past 42 years.

He began choreographing in 1976 during the course of a 12-year dance career and since then has created over 100 original works. In 1979, he founded the David Taylor Dance Theatre, for 32 years one of the Rocky Mountain Region’s most well known and respected dance organizations, and Denver’s original contemporary ballet company. As the principal choreographer for 27 years, Taylor’s unique creative focal point became a fascination with the ritual of ancient cultures, metaphysical concepts and multimedia collaborations that served to put DTDT on the map nationwide as a company to watch. He received the City and County of Denver’s first Individual Artist Fellowship Award for Dance in 1987, the Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts in 1997 and The Carson-Brierly Dance Library’s “Living Legends of Dance” Award in 2006. A recipient of three National Endowment for the Arts grants, his productions of The Nutcracker and Rainforest have been presented throughout the United States and he has also been commissioned to stage ballets for the Dayton Ballet in Ohio, the Lone Star Ballet in Amarillo, Texas, the Canyon Concert Ballet in Fort Collins and for the Aspen/ Santa Fe Ballet.

Perennial Four Corners Folk Festival favorites Anne and Pete Sibley have had the blessing to share their versions of song and voice around the country and beyond for almost a decade. Anne and Pete will open Sunday’s main stage at this year’s festival at 11 a.m. on Sept. 2.

Old favorites, new faces to grace folk festival stage By Crista Munro

Special to The PREVIEW

The 17th annual Four Corners Folk Festival is just four weeks away now, taking place over Labor Day Weekend, Aug. 31 through Sept. 2, on Reservoir Hill in Pagosa Springs. The festival will feature 21 live performances on two stages from some of the finest touring Americana, bluegrass, newgrass and folk musicians in the country. This year’s musical bill includes Railroad Earth, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, The Wood Brothers, Darrell Scott, Sara Watkins, Loudon Wainwright III, Sarah Siskind, Caravan of Thieves, Elephant Revival, the Milk Carton Kids, Rose’s Pawn Shop, The Well Pennies and this week’s featured artists Anne & Pete Sibley, Mike + Ruthy and You Me & Apollo. Music can go beyond the lyrics and chords when it deeply resonates within us. To the very center of our core it brings us a sense of joy and peace, grounding our lives.

Perennial festival favorites Anne and Pete Sibley have had the blessing to share their versions of song and voice around the country and beyond for almost a decade. A husband and wife duo that met over 20 years ago through music, they sing with simple accompaniment of guitar and clawhammer banjo. In doing so, their fluid harmonies and songwriting are able to take center stage. Along with an easy going stage presence that leaves space for deep listening, Anne and Pete invite the audience to be part of a music experience — an experience which they hope will call each person to awaken their own simple joyful melody within themselves. They have been humbled by the thousands of people who have supported them on their own journey which started with a simple “yes” to their heart’s passion of singing. Less than a decade since they released their first album, the Sibleys’ music hit the national spotlight

With their arsenal of fiddle, banjo, guitar, ukulele and their hallmark harmony singing, a Mike + Ruthy concert is overstuffed with soulful songs and stories and a timeless sound that is spellbinding and pure.

in 2009 with a first-place finish in the “Great American Duet Sing Off” on National Public Radio’s A Prairie Home Companion. The pair’s CD releases include “Coming Home” (2009) “Will You Walk With Me” (2005), “Winter on the Great Divide” (2007) and “Think of This River” (2004). Anne and Pete Sibley will open Sunday’s main stage at 11 a.m. on Sept. 2. Luckily for festival-goers, Anne and Pete Sibley aren’t the only talented husband and wife musicians featured on the bill this year. As evidenced not only by that couple, but also Caravan of Thieves’ Buzz and Carrie, The Well Pennies and folk rockers Mike + Ruthy, it’s a beautiful thing when two people live and work together in harmony. Woodstock’s Mike + Ruthy have been touring and recording together for 13 years (married for six of them), and the sound just keeps getting sweeter. Maybe it’s their differences that make the whole thing work. Mike is an artfully prolific songwriter with an indie rock soul and feather-touch vocals. Ruthy is an earthy countryblues singer raised by folkies with the unmistakable stage presence of a natural-born performer. For Mike + Ruthy, music is not just a way of living, it’s a way of experiencing life. As a duo, Mike + Ruthy have refined their sound down to the very core of acoustic American music, demonstrating an uncommon ability to create songs as lyrically sophisticated as Bob Dylan or Leonard Cohen and as harmoni-

cally beautiful as Gillian Welch and David Rawlings or Simon and Garfunkel. Says Mike, “My musical goals are similar to the ones I try to embody in life: to love the world the best I can. I want to explore the truth and beauty of daily life so that I can become re-enchanted with the world and, in turn, the world can become re-enchanted by me.” With their arsenal of fiddle, banjo, guitar, ukulele and their hallmark harmony singing, a Mike + Ruthy concert is overstuffed with soulful songs and stories and a timeless sound that is spellbinding and pure. Their teamwork extends from songwriting and performing to recording and releasing their own albums on their small, independent label Humble Abode Music. The couple recorded their first duo album “The Honeymoon Agenda” instead of going on a honeymoon and followed that up with the acclaimed “Waltz of the Chickadee” and the fan-funded “Million to One,” which rose to the top 20 on the Americana music charts in 2010. On April 17, they introduced the “NYC” EP a collection of six compelling new songs which includes their newly re-crafted Woody Guthrie ballad, “My New York City.” “We have been friends with the Guthries for many years. They are a vastly talented and loving bunch,” says Ruthy. “Nora Guthrie, daughter of Woody, operates the Guthrie archive down in the lower Hudson Valley. Last year she sent us a beautiful document: the lyrics and

melody to Woody’s ‘My New York City.’ There are thousands of songs in the archive, many with no recording or notated melody, and for various projects Nora has drawn in different artists to collaborate and record some of them. We immediately felt a deep connection to the lyrics, maybe because Mike and I lived in New York City when we first n See Festival on next page

met and made music together.” Mike + Ruthy decided to collaborate with their friends, bassist Jacob Silver and drummer Robin Macmillan, who have converted a Williamsburg loft into an analog recording studio and recently began issuing seven-inch vinyl releases of projects recorded in-house under the imprint Media Blitz Record Company. The collaboration was magic. The Jacob/Robin rhythm section floated on the pretty songs, rocked the old-timey stomps and laid it down smooth on the blues numbers. One session turned into many and the four musicians harvested five more spirited tracks to accompany the shimmering new Woody premiere: Mike’s highenergy, banjo-strummer “On My Way Home,” Lil Green’s soulful “Romance in the Dark,” Ruthy’s sultry “Oh Mama,” Mike’s triumphant “Raise Your Glasses High” and his eloquent “Toast My Memory.” The foursome agreed that Media Blitz would release the two-song vinyl (“My New York City” and “On My Way Home”) and Mike + Ruthy’s independent label Humble Abode would print and release the EP as a CD. In addition to being track one on Mike + Ruthy’s new EP, “My New York City” will be included in “My Name is New York,” a four-CD collection of Woody’s New York songs performed by artists including Pete Seeger, Bess Lomax, Leadbelly, Tiny Robinson, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie and Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir, which is being released in June by Woody Guthrie Publications. As the daughter of fiddle legend, Jay Ungar, and country singer

Lyn Hardy, Ruthy is no stranger to roots music and harmony singing. Despite her innate knowledge of American folk and country music, Ruthy opted to steer clear of the musician’s life and in 1997 moved to New York City to pursue a career in the theatre. It was in New York that Ruthy was introduced to Michael Merenda, an aspiring playwright and songwriter from New Hampshire who himself had just recently arrived in the big apple to test his mettle. With this meeting, Ruthy’s interest in music was stoked, with Mike becoming entranced by the deep well of folk music from which Ruthy’s talent poured: the duo began collaborating immediately. A romantic relationship began shortly after the musical partnership was sparked and in 2000 the couple resettled just outside of Northampton, Mass., where they met Tao Rodriguez-Seeger (grandson of the legendary folk singer Pete Seeger) and formed the “subversive, acoustic, stringband” The Mammals. The Mammals toured the world for seven years including trips to Australia, Denmark and Canada and even a six-month stint opening for and backing up the great Arlo Guthrie during his 40th anniversary of Alice’s Restaurant tour which culminated at New York’s Carnegie Hall. With the birth of their son, Will, in 2008, Mike + Ruthy, announced a departure from The Mammals to focus on their growing family. During this time, Mike and Ruthy have further explored their joy in playing together. Mike + Ruthy and their band will play the Main Stage at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 2.

group, You Me & Apollo. Dan felt so strongly that the band possessed a unique and undiscovered talent, that he called a few friends at the largest artist talent agencies in the country and by the end of the day the band had been signed by one of the biggest in the business. That’s how good this band is. Peter Washington of Concerted Effort Blog says You Me & Apollo, “injects the fury of rock ’n roll and the heartfelt spirit of blues into a folk/Americana sound that really comes alive (during their) performances” The music of You Me & Apollo ranges from quiet folk to groove-infused rock and has been described as an unholy union of Hank Williams and Otis Redding. The birth of You Me & Apollo, in 2007, consisted of singer-songwriter Brent

Cowles.

Thursday, August 9, 2012 – The Pagosa Springs SUN – PREVIEW – Section 1 – Page 15

Paint the duck, make Sweet Al happy I woke up frustrated. I had three calls this week wanting private painting lessons. In my mind — been there, done that. I have evolved. I am now a writer. I am not there anymore. I’m too busy with this book and thinking about the next book. At breakfast, I wanted to talk about it and thought Al would understand. I should have known I was talking to the wrong person. I began, “I’ve evolved, time has evolved, and what I want to do has evolved. I teach two days a week at Wyndham and I have other things to do. These people want me to take chunks of my time and teach them to paint. Where were they when I wanted to teach? They didn’t value me back then.” Al said, “If they want a lesson, I think you should teach them. You could make a few dollars. I don’t see a problem.” “You don’t understand. I have evolved. I am now a writer.” “Betty, you have a talent and you are going to lose it if you don’t stay in it. Besides, I asked you to paint a duck landing on the water. I found a beautiful picture of ducks on the water, and I asked you to paint it a long time ago, and you haven’t.” “I don’t have time. I am marketing this book.” “I’ll never get a duck painting.” Al pouted. I’d opened up a can of worms. I defended myself. “I painted a pheasant painting for you. I’ve painted portraits of all your dogs. Wasn’t that enough?” Then Al brought up another pet peeve: “And besides, you are always on the computer. If you would stay off the computer, you would have time to paint.” That was the way the day began, and continued. Mikey, my marketing coach, called. I thought if anyone could understand, he would. He is a part of all this social marketing I’m doing on the computer. I told Mikey my tale of woe. He listened patiently, then he said: “Are you through whining? Your problem is in you. You have devalued your gift. You do not respect the gift in your hands.” “No, it’s not like that. It’s everyone else who doesn’t value my worth.” Then Mikey said, “I told you a year ago that your art would dwarf your book. You didn’t believe me. Your art will be a big part of your success.” “I’m not there today; I’m ready to go on.” Mikey didn’t give in. “This is your assignment. Spend a half hour before the Lord. Think about why the Lord put gold in

Artist’s Lane Betty Slade your hands. Don’t think about it as being gold, think of it as purpose in your hands and what God wants you to do with it. Also, think about the purpose of teaching others and what you are giving. Remember, the provision is always in your presence.” “I guess I can do that.” I said, reluctantly. Before we hung up, he said, “And paint the ducks for Al. Remember, he is the most important person in your life.” I was still frustrated. I had too much to do as it was, and now I had to paint a duck. I needed some quick answers. I was still stewing about the fact that people my age have time to do nothing; they are going on cruises, going out to lunch, reading a book and my life is speeding up and I can’t keep up with it. The faster I go, the more is expected of me. Something has to give. In a quiet moment, I finally settled down in who I am and the Spirit in me. I can trust the Lord to move on me to do the things He has required me to do. If He sends someone along who wants to learn how to paint, then the Provision is in my presence and there is definite purpose. It’s not how I’ve evolved, but who the Lord brings into my life that I might bless them. Isn’t that what it is all about? For those to whom God has given much, He requires much. He does not require anything He hasn’t given. It is not the answer I wanted to hear, but I know there is purpose in it and that purpose has eternal value. I just wrote another article, and I got a lot of frustration off my mind. Thanks for reading. The ducks are waiting, but that is another story for another time. Final brushstroke: Move in the Spirit. Trust the Provision in your presence. What you thought was something you once did, might be that very thing to move you into your current possibility. Anyway, that’s what they tell me.

‘The ART of it ALL,’ call for entries By Denise Coffee

Special to The PREVIEW

SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts: Gallery, Studio & Workshops is pleased to announce a call for entries for “The ART of it ALL,” an all-media national juried exhibition, Oct. 20–Nov. 25. Juror is D. Michael Coffee, curator and creative director, SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts. Submission deadline is Sept. 15. This national juried exhibition is open to all artists, craftsman and creatives 18 years of age or older. Art must be original and created by the person who submits the work. All submissions must have been completed within the last three years. Established in 2004 by Pagosa Springs residents D. Michael and Denise Coffee, SHY RABBIT has gained notoriety for its contribution to the advancement of contemporary art and art education in southwest Colorado and for the high quality of its exhibitions. “SHY RABBIT has succeeded in establishing the gallery as a premier contemporary art venue known not only for its support of emerging regional artists but also established, nationally known artists.” — J. Masterjohn, Durango Telegraph. SHY RABBIT strives to present ongoing exhibitions that invite curi-

osity and discussion, that keep artists involved and challenged, that create excitement and interest in the arts community and beyond, and that showcase contemporary fine art trends and ideas. The broad theme suggested by “The ART of It ALL” builds upon that premise and is intended to maximize the range of artistic expression that may be submitted. The inclusion and thoughtful blending of fine art, craft and, in some instances, function, is at the core of this expansive exhibition, opening the door to a much wider display of individualized interpretations of various art forms. Submitted artworks can include collage, digital, mixed media, paintings, sculpture, prints, drawing, photography, assemblage, installation, ceramics, fiber, film and video; and may also include smaller scale art objects such as jewelry and watches (display cases may be required), ceramics, boxes, knives, baskets and glass, among others. Artworks can be traditional or nontraditional in theme and can run the gamut from folk to fantasy, contemplative to playful, baroque to minimalist. They can be constructed of such diverse materials as wood, glass, plaster, plastics, paper, concrete,

From intern to baker, a new calling By Sophie Kennedy SUN Intern

I thought when I arrived in Pagosa Springs at the beginning July to work as an intern at The SUN, that I was here to pursue my dream of becoming a journalist. I thought I was following my calling to become a writer. But, alas, I was wrong. I am not here to reach for the stars or to follow my dreams, but rather, I have been guided by Destiny. Call her Fate, Lady Luck or Mary, mother of God, but I have been guided by the Homemaker of the Universe towards my one true calling — baker. County fair baker, that is. Yes, I am talking about my recent success at the Archuleta County Fair in the baking category of the Exhibit Hall competitions. I am referring to my sweeping victory in the chocolate bar, chocolate chip cookie and assorted other cake categories. I do mean my triumphant annihilation of all competitors (except the kid who was named grand champion ... but, whatever). You may say I had an unfair advantage because I competed in the Teen Amateur Division, which

gave me a good third of a lifetime on my 12-year-old competitors. But to that I say, “Hogwash! I won fair and square I did.” To all those who laughed at my repeated attempts in the kitchen to take my trusted and now award-winning recipes to the next level (Mommy, you know who I’m talking to), I present my three, first-place, blue ribbons and my red, Reserved Champion ribbon as evidence that I am destined to bake. I may have mastered but three recipes, but the evidence is there nonetheless. I will whip up a chocolate pecan bar, a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie or a coconut cake any day; just say when, just say where. Again, I contend that it is irrelevant that I had more than a few years on my competitors and that I have not confirmed that I actually had competitors in each of the sub-categories to which I submitted my darlings. The fact is, ladies and gentlemen, residents of Archuleta County and visitors to Pagosa Springs, I am an awardwinning baker. I, henceforth, will abandon my pursuits of higher education, journalistic success and intellectual betterment for a

metals and gemstones. Artists can submit up to 10 entries. All entry fees are non-refundable. Select artists will be invited to exhibit a larger body of their work at SHY RABBIT at a future date. Entries can be mailed to SHY RABBIT at PO Box 5887, Pagopsa Springs CO, 81147 or submitted online at http://www.shyrabbit.com/ Calls.html. The prospectus is available at the online address. Submission deadline is Sept. 15, 2012, for online and postmarked entries. Juror D. Michael Coffee has over 30 years of combined experience in architecture, ceramics, painting, photography, and fine art printmaking, and currently works as a professional artist and arts educator. As curator and creative Director for SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts, Coffee has been responsible for organizing, curating and installing over 40 fine art exhibitions, and has been credited with transforming SHY RABBIT into the region’s most important and innovative contemporary art spaces. Coffee has also been responsible for operating SHY RABBIT’s ceramic and fine art print gallery, and teaching year-round ceramic and “Reductive Ink” printmaking workshops and Professional Artist Development courses. His fine art monoprints and original functional and sculptural ceramics have been exhibited widely and have received numerous awards,

including: the President’s Purchase Award, “Ink & Clay 29,” Dee Roy and Mary M. Jones Collection, Calif., and “Best of Denver” Best Solo Ceramic Exhibition, “Place of Mind: New Works by D. Michael Coffee,” Denver Westword magazine.

greater cause — bringing better baked goods to the world. I will sacrifice both my mother’s and grandmother’s clean kitchens, my girlish figure and the blood sugar level of my ever-eager-totaste-test grandfather to this pursuit — all in the name of baked goods. With great courage, I will make lots of messes and indulge in far too many licks of frosting. No need to thank me, Archuleta County, for gracing you with my delicious treats. It is my duty, my dharma, and I accept it graciously. For, I know, thanks to Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben, that with great power, comes great responsibility. Fear not, I will use my new found powers well — beginning with my enjoyment of this fresh from the oven, just-golden brown, sweet, rich and buttery, white chocolate macadamia nut cookie. Mmmmm ...award-winning goodness.

Don’t run to the rescue By Adam Colwell

Special to The PREVIEW

In this day and age of the “Amber Alert” you’ve grown sadly accustomed to hearing about those who are missing or lost. You might even remember the milk cartons, stamped with a photo of a little boy or girl, with the caption “Have you seen this child?” You can easily imagine the horror a parent would feel upon discovering that their child is gone, or the fear and anger that would rise within when finding out a son or daughter has run away. You’d want to do something — to act — to bring that loved one home again. Scripture tells of such a frightening tale. It’s in Luke 15:11-32, the “Parable of the Lost Son.” And while I’m sure you’re familiar with the story, I encourage you to open your Bible for a couple of minutes and read the parable again, because it teaches that the last thing you do with your prodigal is act — or, at least, act in the way you think. In Jesus’ parable, the younger son got his inheritance but, “set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living.” After his money was gone, famine struck. To survive, he

A Arts Matter ofLine Faith hired himself out feeding pigs, but he became so hungry he longed for the swine’s pods, “but no one gave him anything.” The son was destitute and abandoned. What was the father doing this entire time? Did he saddle up a caravan to seek out his son and deliver him from the pestilence in the land? Nope. Dad stayed home. He didn’t run to the rescue. This wise father knew his son needed to learn on his own. The result? Luke 15:17 says the son, “came to his senses” and chose to go home. It’s also easy to take on the role of counselor or consultant to your prodigal while they’re away. A preachy approach, though, will likely get you nowhere fast. So instead of giving them advice, why not give your pain and frustration to God and faithfully pray for your prodigal? I believe that’s exactly what the father was doing in Luke 15. Jesus was using this parable to illustrate to his listeners how God remains involved in His children’s lives when they turn away from

Him. It beautifully describes the Lord’s mercy and love. Therefore, I simply cannot see the father in the story being an indifferent, calloused bystander. I’m convinced he was interceding daily for his son, seeking God’s protection and will, faithfully awaiting his child’s return. Perhaps that’s why you’re told that while the son, “was still a long way off, his father saw him” (Luke 15:20). He was looking for his son’s arrival, trusting his prayers would be realized. Finally, when your prodigal decides to return, they need to know they have somewhere to go, that you’ll be there for them to walk alongside and help them put their lives back on track. In addition, when they come back you need to welcome them, even if others in the home aren’t happy about it. The prodigal son’s brother certainly wasn’t thrilled with his father’s enthusiasm. After all, wasn’t this the son that openly rebelled? But the rejoicing father kept the right perspective: “But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found” (Luke 15:32).

The other day, my mother sat in the recliner gently rubbing one of her knees. “A que buena suerte,” she said, “que no ‘stoy enferma y que nomas me duelen las rodillas.” I couldn’t help it, I had to laugh aloud. She was so serious about not being sick, and so absolutely clueless about her medical condition. Forgetfulness is a blessing, indeed. “I agree,” I replied, “It’s certainly a good thing that you’re not sick and that the only thing that hurts you is your knees.” I’ve been thinking a lot about what my mother said that day, and I’ve decided that her way is the best way to view any circumstance; indeed, life itself. “It’s a good thing,” I said by text to my sister, Annette, “that I get to eat at Angelina’s Restaurant in Espanola today and that I only have to drive two and a half hours to get there. She couldn’t help it. She laughed aloud. “Ave Maria Purisma” she texted in reply, “Pray for this idiot.”

“It’s a good thing,” I said to Bobbie, while we loaded our state-issued vehicle with training materials for three days of training in Penasco and Espanola, “that our building has an elevator and that the only thing we have to do is move this big box one more time when we get to Penasco.” She didn’t laugh. She just gave me the look. You know the look. It’s the look that says, “This woman is absolutely clueless about her condition.” “It’s a good thing,” I said to my prima Becky at the Giant gas station in Bloomfield, “that Prima Cynthia won a million dollars with a Powerball ticket and that the only thing she lacked to win more was the actual Powerball itself.” Prima Cynthia is the granddaughter of late Primo Pablo Gomez of Angostura and a prima-hermana of Becky. We both agreed that we’d be blessed, too, if we only lacked a Powerball. “It’s a good thing,” I said to my brother, Lucas,” that most people know you’re getting close to terminating a conversation on the telephone when they hear you say “bueno, bueno, bueno,” and that the only people you have

Young ladies of quality do not ... I was raised in the south, in a family of true southern ladies. My mother was extremely proper and started many of her sentences to me with, “Young ladies of quality do ... or do not do ...” As much as I have outwardly rebelled against that over the years, I have to admit that deep down it is still ingrained in my psyche. One area that I know is still controlled by that is the area of bodily functions. I am one of the few people I know who do not find farting funny. I even have trouble writing the word “fart.” When I was growing up it was more acceptable to have

The Battle of the Netherlands Susan Neder a child out of wedlock than to fart in public; at least if you had a child out of wedlock, people understood and even might know someone else who had suffered that event. No one knew any female who ever farted in public. It just was not done, except by men. So is it any wonder that here I am at this stage of life being faced

with one of my biggest challenges? I have noticed over the years that whatever you think you can’t handle gets plunked down into your lap at some point. And so it is for me as I wrestle with everything that comes with a new colostomy. Great. Just what I wanted. Oh well, I know I can beat this too — it just is not easy! However, I suspect that, at its core, it is rooted in some sort of false pride issue, which I do not like at all; so that motivates me to keep going. I just hope once I conquer this hurdle I won’t be tempted to spit in public. That really would not do at all.

Humane Society’s Auction for the Animals coming soon By Mike Stoll

Please plan to attend one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year and support the animal shelter’s mission of providing a safe haven for the homeless, unwanted and lost dogs and cats in our community. Our local Humane Society does not receive any funding from the Humane Society of the United States, American Humane, the ASPCA or the United Way.

animals in need. We are still seeking additional new and like-new donations for this exciting event. Signed artwork and books, gift certificates, jewelry, sports and outdoor equipment, gift items, dog and cat related products, and other biddable items are needed to help make the auction a great success again this year.

Exploring Ka Ta See at UU service By John Graves

Special to The PREVIEW

On Sunday, Aug. 12, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be, “Exploring Ka Ta See: Tools for Knowing and Expanding Your Wondrousness,” presented by Ken Robinson. He points out that, “Ka Ta See means ‘setting the world in balance’ and is a shamanic tradition of unconditional love and healing. It provides profound tools to help us awaken to all we are as wondrous and spiritually capable beings.” Ken explains that, “Ka Ta See was brought to our country in the early 1970s by Domano and Chea Hetaka, shamans of a remote indigenous Peruvian people who lived in close communion with the Earth and Spirit World. The Hetakas fulfilled a tribal prophecy

by sharing their knowledge when our world became precariously out of balance.” Robinson, who lives in Santa Fe, N.M., is a healer, teacher and seer, and holds advanced degrees in counseling psychology. He also has discovered and created a new awakening approach to astrology, and offers shamanic astrology readings and classes. 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.

soon as possible so that they may be properly catalogued and included in our auction marketing materials. All donations must be received by 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 20, to be included in the auction. Advance ticket sales will begin on Monday, Aug. 13, and can be purchased until 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 23, at the Humane Society administration office and the Chamber of Commerce. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the event. For more information or to make a tax deductible donation to the auction, call the Humane Society at 264-5549.

Who needs monuments when you’ve got markets? When you travel, in the homeland or out of country, you can dip into the “high” culture — museums, concerts, etc.—— or you can indulge the “low” culture, with its street life, neighborhoods and areas off the tourist radar, and a variety of less well-known activities, some of them considered unsavory by the champions of couth among us. One of my favorite pursuits when I travel would probably fall at the low end of the spectrum. I am not referring to the Red Light District in Amsterdam, the Times Square area back in the early ’80s, or the side streets and doorways in Pigalle, though they certainly have their allure. I’m talking about markets. Markets big and small, from tiny storefronts to the monsters, the markets of legend. There are some monsters here in the U.S. In a corny sort of way, the Farmers Market near Fairfax in LA fills the bill, and there are great places to eat at that venerable destination. The Santa Monica Farmers Market is a dandy, given the right season. The Ferry Plaza market in San Francisco makes a lot of lists of favorites. The Portobello Market in London offers a bit of everything to the visitor, with food being, perhaps, the least interesting aspect of an entertaining visit. I had a piece of haddock there, once, where the fish should not have died. A quick walk to Campo di Fiori from Piazza Navona in Rome fulfilled a longtime market dream of mine, though I arrived too late for peak business. Suffice it to say, I find markets more interesting than monuments. A leisurely stroll through a market, for me, bests a tour of nearly any tourist site. Kathy and I visited two markets on a recent trip to Spain and France, both of which I researched over the years, both that I wanted to experience while I still had the physical and economic wherewithal to do so. It is rare to find a market anywhere in the U.S. outside a major food center that compares to La Boqueria, in Barcelona, or the Arles market in the south of France. Don’t get me wrong, the folks who do their best to organize and promote a farmers market here in Siberia With a View have undertaken a noble task, and the weekly summer affair is worth a visit. But it is, in total, the equivalent of one booth at the Spanish and French extravaganzas. In our alpine roost, we lack the extended growing season and fertility of

Just don’t dawdle. I made that mistake at the front of a fishmonger’s booth. I was stoked, eyes wide, heart beating pitterpat. I was, after all, at one of the most famous markets in Spain. soil existing near sea level in the south of France, and the shore is but a mile or so away from the Barcelona market. Our options in Siberia With a View, even with a superb season, are few. The splendor of the markets near the Mediterranean and Balearic seas is common. Like food? Like crowds? Like surly merchants? If so, La Boqueria, technically Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria, is for you. This renowned market sits under a giant roof, its sides open, entry a short block off La Rambla. It is safe to say there are few items not available at La Boqueria from the vendors whose booths border the jam-packed aisles. Weathered and wily grandmothers match wits and elbows with chefs as they cruise for produce and fish, the best cuts of meat, their favorite cheeses, wines for the afternoon and evening meals. Incredibly fresh vegetables and fruits are stacked high in tilted bins. Carcasses hang ready for the

butcher. Sausages are coiled in display cases. Fish, eyes clear, gills red and fresh, are positioned like design elements in huge, shallow trays, the fragile flesh cushioned by crushed ice. Interspersed with the vendor booths are stands offering everything from snacks to full meals to beverages of all kinds. Want a sandwich, say Iberico and a whiff of queso? No problemo. How about a beer, or a cocktail? It’s yours. Grilled, fresh fish, a hunk of charred cephalopod? Mighty tasty. In the mood for monkfish liver, cockles, lamb’s brain to spread on a slab of toasted bread? Rest easy, you’re in the right place. Just don’t dawdle. I made that mistake at the front of a fishmonger’s booth. I was stoked, eyes wide, heart beating pitter-pat. I was, after all, at one of the most famous markets in Spain. The sounds, the smells, a few sips of a handmade mango and orange concoction — they flipped me into a reverie. Suddenly, there they were: a platoon of fresh sardines, lined up perfectly on the ice, like little silvery soldiers ready for a parade. I was enthralled, my nose about an inch from the tiny fish. In my imagination, I could smell the critters as they grilled over hot charcoal. I could imagine the taste — oily, meaty, like the sea, totally different from the canned, smaller varieties we find in our stores here. A splash of fresh lemon juice and … I realized someone was yelling at me. At me? The jovial, gap-toothed fat guy in the garish Hawaiian shirt? Yep. It was the proprietress. She wanted nothing of my appreciative meditation; she wanted me outta there. I didn’t understand Catalan, but I understood a scowl, yelling, waving and indiscreet hand gestures. Kathy and I made our way through the rest of the market. We were there for at least an hour. I left determined to eat some fresh, grilled sardines. I enjoyed mackerel and pulpo tapas later that night in a place in the Bario Gotic, but the sardines stuck in my mind. The second great market is in Arles, that once-Roman outpost in the south of France (the land given by Julius Caesar to the members of the legion who demolished their foes in Gaul). Not a bad deal. The land at the tail end of the Rhone is an agricultural hot spot: vineyards abound in the region, farms crank out spectacular pro-

duce of all kinds. We stayed in Arles at an eccentric little place run by Eric, a noted ex-chef and cooking instructor, a bohemian squat that keeps Kathy on the alert for pathogens and disease-bearing insects. Eric teaches cooking classes in a huge kitchen on the first floor. A class underway on a Saturday morning included students — professional and amateur — from the U.S., England, Thailand and Brazil, all there to learn more about the cuisine of Provence. I checked out the items on the blackboard: brandade, ratatoiuille, roasted leg of lamb persillade. Been there, done that. I opt out. I took a walk while Kathy scouted out a decrepit laundromat. I strolled down a narrow street in old Arles to Place Voltaire. I headed down Rue Voltaire to the old wall of the city and a gate marked by two eroded, round towers. There it was: the famed Arles Market — a four-block-long walkway with tents, trailers, booths lining both sides. The experience couldn’t have been more different than the one afforded by the brusque bustle of La Boqueria. Not to say I was well equipped to deal with the situation. I studied French for seven years and I was put through the drill the final two years of my studies by Charles Pinckney — savant, linguist, perfectionist, pinched

prude and relation of Charles Pinckney, governor of South Carolina, a member of the Continental Congress and signer of the U.S. Constitution. My Pinckney wore a suit, tie and vest and prowled the language lab like a prissy tiger. All the “masters” at the school wore coats and ties, but Pinckney dressed and acted like he was going to the coronation of the queen — with him as queen. After all the work, all the pain inflicted by my nitpicking overseer (Pinckney flunked me all but one semester), I can proudly say I speak French well enough to point at something, grunt and nod my head when asked (usually with obvious sympathy) whether I want to purchase the item. Fortunately, I didn’t need fluency at the Arles Market. The vendors were an international lot; they were used to inarticulate clowns like me. At nearly every stand, I was offered a smidge, a taste, a sip. I spent an hour nibbling and drinking my way down one side of the promenade and back up the other. I ate superlative cheeses, sampled artisanal charcuterie, sampled wines from vignerons working mere miles away, enjoyed slices and chunks of ripe fruits and veggies picked that day. I smelled herbs, savored spices, revelled in the abundance and quality of goods at the market. I hustled back to the laundromat, spelled Kathy and she made

her way to the market, making the trek before it closed at noon. That evening, dinner at Le Gaboulet, located on Rue Docteur Fanton, provided a taste of some of the goodies I saw at the market earlier that day. They say Van Gogh once frequented the restaurant. I can’t imagine he had the cash. My favorite part of the meal was an unusual salad; one I intend to make here, soon. The ingredients: fresh micro greens, steamed green peas, pearl barley (or Israeli couscous) lardons (blocks of crisped, unsalted bacon), crouton (chunks of heavy, crusty bread sauteed in the lardon drippings) sauteed mushrooms (ditto with the drippings, plus some extra virgin olive oil), all resting in a slick of glace viand (veal stock reduced to syrup). The melange was stacked just so and a soft-cooked egg went on top, all runny-yolk good, with flaky fleur de sel available on the side. When the yolk of the egg was pierced, the goo ran down into the elements of the salad, finally hitting the glace viand and creating ambrosia, a mix for the gods. The meatiness of the mushrooms, the porky delight of the lardons, buoyed by the fresh produce and the carbs from the pearls of barley created an umami-blessed depth of flavor that was stunning. Mercy. And merci (a nod to Pinckney). Incidentally, I ate grilled sardines the next night. And no one tried to shoo me away.
