Local sales tax figures show year of growth !y $d &incher Staff Writer

A Colorado Department of Revenue report released last week indicates the sales tax collected by Archuleta County and the Town of Pagosa Springs for June 2012 was $637,361.43, which is down $3,971.16 or .62 percent compared to June of last year; however, the year-to-date sales tax revenue is up .93 percent over 2011. These are the revised numbers received by The SUN on Aug. 12, and not quite as alarming as the first report received on Aug. 9. The number was originally $618,359.94, which is down $22,972.65 or 3.58 percent for the same comparison, which threw the year-to-date number down to only a .26-percent increase over 2011. The confusion came about because there was a difference between

what the county actually received in sales tax and what was reported by CDR. Diane Sorensen, finance director for Archuleta County, gave credit for catching this error to Pagosa Springs Town Clerk April Hessman. The CDR report has since been updated and corrected, and Sorensen vows in the future to tie the amount in the report she receives from CDR to the amount actually received by the county treasurer to provide accurate reporting. Breaking it down by category, retail trade, which is the biggest source of revenue, was $287,247 —$18,997 over last year and up 7.1 percent from last June’s $268,250. The second largest sector, accommodations and food, brought in $113,677 worth of tax revenue in June 2012, compared to $104,625 last year, an increase of $9,052 or ! See Sales +,

Info sought in school break-in !y Handi Pierce Staff Writer

An attempted burglary at Pagosa Springs High School Tuesday night has law enforcement officials on the lookout for a suspect and the owner of a bike possibly connected to the incident. According to Det. Scott Maxwell of the Pagosa Springs Police Department, a double-pane window of the school’s weight room was discovered broken early Tuesday morning. An early investigation by Maxwell and Officer Floyd Capistrant revealed that the rock was likely used to break the window, but a “significant amount” of blood found at the scene may mean the culprit cut themselves on the hand or wrist, Maxwell reported. David Hamilton, the school’s principal, said it is unclear if the suspect went out of the weight room and further into the school. At press time, Hamilton was still examining security footage. The PSPD’s K-9 unit later trailed a scent from the scene to a bicycle in the yard of a residence on Eighth Street. The resident reported no ! See /reak-in +,

So far during the 2012 summer, seven black bears in the Pagosa area have been trapped by Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials. Out of those seven bears, two were euthanized in Pagosa. Another one was euthanized in New Mexico. Another one of the bears was killed while crossing the road. All in all, this summer, three black bears have been euthanized in the Pagosa area, and a total of four killed while crossing a street or road. In addition, wildlife officers for Archuleta County have reported receiving around 50 reports of bears entering homes this year. Two of these incidents have ended in the death of the bear, the animals killed by homeowners. The most recent incident took place around 4 a.m. Monday morning at a house located off of U.S. 84. In this incident, the bear had entered the house previously, and the homeowner had taken the necessary precaution in making the bear feel unwelcome. The first time, the bear fled. On Monday morning, however, Wildlife Manager Doug Purcell reported that the bear was in the house instead of fleeing from the homeowner, and it stood its ground. An investigation ensued and found that the owner was in the right to shoot the bear. Purcell explained that a person must be protecting life, whether human or substantial livestock, to be justified in killing a bear. Seeing a bear in the garage or walking across the porch, Purcell said, is not reason enough for killing a bear. If you have issues with a bear in the yard, garage or house, contact one of the wildlife officers in the area by calling Archuleta County Combined Dispatch at 731-2160. Dispatch will then direct your calls to the on-duty wildlife officer. Wildlife Manager Mike Reid said ! See /ear +,

Jennifer Green, the director of the Town Tourism Committee, reported to the Pagosa Springs Town Council that May 2012 was the strongest May on record in terms of the collection of lodgers tax, with an increase of $2,133.33 or 9.8 percent over 2011. Year to date, the increase over 2011 is $13,480.57, or 10.81 percent. In a follow-up interview, Green said, “Lodging tax numbers have been up for the last 12 months, but I anticipate July is going to be down because of the fires.” Green explained that, due to the Waldo Fire in the Colorado Springs area, outof-state tourists may have mixed up Colorado Springs and Pagosa Springs, or it could just be that statewide tourism numbers are down because of all of the fires the state experienced during the first part of the summer. In any case, “Fourth of July was a little lighter than usual.”

Revised numbers for April show that the lodgers tax total was up to $16,863.65, just slightly higher than 2011, and the preliminary number for June, $38,302, is 6.13 percent higher than last year, but there is still one more payment coming in. There were 4,444 requests to the TTC for the Pagosa Springs Official Visitor Guide (published by The SUN) in June, and, at 112 percent, it was a significant increase over last year’s June figure. Most of these leads came from www.colorado. com. The traffic numbers for the Visitor Center were also up to 6,840 people for June, which is an increase of 2.3 percent over June 2011. According to Green, these numbers come from the Chamber of Commerce and are easier to collect than tax figures, so they provide a quicker indication of tourism figures. However, Green explained that there isn’t a direct correlation between the number of people who ! See Tourism +,

Abandoning the middle ground

Should the Community Development Corporation facilitate a Wal-Mart Community Benefits Agreement?

American voters face critical decisions in November and it would be a refreshing change of pace if they think carefully about issues and are afforded accurate information prior to the day they make a decision. Such a move might engender moderation, for a change. One of the main reasons this scenario will likely not take place on the large stage is that a torrent of political noise blinds people to arguments and evidence that do not harmonize with their established beliefs. Much of the noise is produced by slanted and often false information foisted on the electorate by some of the “news” media and by campaign advertising — as well as by the use of banal and emotional terms and concepts by candidates and their minions. The task of thinking clearly about issues prior to a vote is rendered difficult; the middle ground is lost. A good example of crippling cognitive dissonance (as well as the effects of slogan-laden rhetoric) can be seen in the results of a recent poll of Colorado voters taken by the AARP regarding the November election. Those polled (and we must remember who commissioned the poll and that organization’s interests) were non-retired voters age 50 and older. They were asked about concerns related to the upcoming vote. As could be expected, economic concerns topped the list. A majority of the Boomers are worried about prices rising faster than incomes, about health care costs, about a lack of financial security concerning retirement and about paying too much in taxes. Three of four polled believe they will have to delay retirement. Well more than half do not think they will have enough money saved for retirement. The majority believes they will have to rely on Social Security and Medicare. Ninety percent of those polled think the next president and Congress need to strengthen Social Security and Medicare. The overwhelming majority believes this can be done only with bi-partisan effort (wishful thinking is not always a bad thing, though most often misguided). On a more realistic note, they state candidates have not done a good job explaining positions on Social Security and Medicare. Blindness and the loss of moderation? Remember, the majority of those polled also think they are paying too much in taxes. “Strengthen Social Security and Medicare” at some point means bolstering funding. All federal programs and departments should be made more efficient, with every attempt made to cut waste. But revenues are also key to the survival of vital programs and their effective application. The answer lies on the middle ground, but misinformation and partisan rhetoric keep too many voters off that turf. Some suggest drastic cuts to other federal programs will be necessary. Surely this is the case, but a significant number of people who push for stronger Social Security and Medicare refuse to accept cuts to defense. We’ve lived in a culture of fear since 9/11, foisted on us by members of both parties, and the thought of not spending more than most of the rest of the world’s military powers combined is unacceptable to many voters. What, then, is left? Education? Aid to the infirm, the destitute? Infrastructure? It is going to take cuts everywhere, and it is going to take additional revenues. The answer is in the middle, on moderate ground. We believe this holds true on any issue. But, no. The sloganeering is too intense, the spurs to extremism and partisan responses on both sides of the political fence are too great. The middle ground has no slogans, no recourse to patriotic songs, to empty, emotional rhetoric. And yet, it is the only ground on which all Americans can survive. With all the dissonance, how many of us realize this? Karl Isberg

Taken from SUN files of August 18, 1922 If the practice is not stopped, the heavy hand of the law will descend upon the Pagosa boys who have been in the habit of utilizing the river near the town pumping station as a swimming hole. Owing to the fact that hunters at various times have failed to close all gates at the Ed. Waechter ranch on Coal creek, thus releasing his cattle from pasture, Mr. Waechter has been compelled to enforce nontresspassing orders, signs to that effect being placed about his holdings. The new steel truss bridge across the San Juan River at the east end of Pagosa Street was still listed on August 1 among the federal aid projects “on which plans are being prepared.”

Taken from SUN files of August 20, 1937 The new registration and information station located at the top of Putnam Hill three miles west of town for the purpose of registering cars going to the upper Piedra section, with Sam Ruybalid, as registrar, reports the following states represented: New Mexico ranks first, with Texas second and Oklahoma third, Arizona fourth. These people were all sight seers and fishing parties visiting the upper Piedra section, which is one of the beauty spots of this section as there are thousands of miles that are unmarred by the hand of man, not to mention the many miles of trout streams that start along the continental divide. Fred Harman is now art editor of a new Hollywood magazine, which is named “Ride Magazine.”

Taken from SUN files of August 16, 1962 The rain last Saturday certainly helped settle the dust and also greened some of the pastures and some of the lawns around town. To date this has been a very dry summer. Ranchers are haying and rains at this time of the year often times delay this job. This is not the case this summer, though. One of the very important issues in the general election in November will be the reapportionment controversy. The plan that will benefit not only Archuleta County, but the entire state, will be amendment number 7. This amendment does give everyone in the state equal representation on a population basis in the house of representatives and then provides for equal representation in sparsely populated areas in the state senate.

Taken from SUN files of August 13, 1987 Acknowledging that “real funding problems” will be encountered by the time the 1988 district budget is prepared, the School District No. 50 Joint Board of Education considered a proposal to apply to the State Budget Review Board for additional funds. Such a move, if taken is unprecedented in the School District No. 50 Joint’s recent history. “We started looking at our 1988 funding,” said District Business Manager Mamie Lynch, “and we saw that the District would not be able, without receiving new money from the State, to add dollars to our teacher salary base.” Lynch said the average teacher’s salary in School District No. 50 Joint is approximately $3500 less than the average salary for other public school teacher in Colorado.

Letters Messy Dear Editor: Democracy is an inherently messy process; but we’re at the abyss. Let’s see, bankers (those too big to fail fat cats that we hated to bail out, then they used our tax money for bonuses) and we are actually considering electing one of them as president? So, besides being slick at finance (companies Mitt’s firm purchased either went BK,paid for by taxpayers), jobs were shipped overseas or the lucky few paid off the debt he borrowed to buy them. Heartless comes to mind. What are his qualifications? Highly successful at avoiding taxes, but gives 10 percent to his church. But about qualifications: He doesn’t know the difference between sheiks (leadership term) and Sikhs (not Arab, but an eastern religion). Mitt let the Brits know he thought they’re incompetent, told every Arab in the world they’re culture is second rate. Well, we’re just getting to know him. Hates Obama Care, loves Romney Care (Mitt’s Mass. health plan, almost identical to each other), thinks corporations are citizens, except he refuses to disclose his tax history as he’s, “not a business!” So, we’re actually thinking about electing the fox to be in the chicken coop! If we do, then surely America continues to fade as a super power, jobs don’t come back, our educational standing continues downward and the middle class … well, don’t blame anyone else. Dave Blake

Shocking Dear Editor: Who does the BoCC actually represent? Is it the county voters who elected them? Town is already represented by the mayor and town council, so if not the BoCC then who? The county residents near the proposed Wal-Mart development are so much more impacted by the negatives of the project than those town folk living far away in the downtown core. Anyone reasonable, without a political agenda to support the town can see that. But, the town’s share of the sales tax will be spent by town on core residents’ wants and needs. Town has no concern for county residents near the proposed Wal-Mart. So the BoCC needs to represent the county voters here. For months, county residents have taken the time to attend BoCC meetings to ask for representation on this matter. But, to no avail. The chair, Clifford Lucero, who is running for reelection this year, claimed that it was strictly a “town matter.” No need to step in to represent the county voters. Poor decision. Then, when it became apparent that the town required ownership of Alpha Drive which is in the county, everything changed. Suddenly the county decided to get involved. Not to represent county voters, but to “help” the town acquire Alpha for their pet project. Poor decision. First Todd Starr, the county attorney, rendered a legal opinion that the county did not own Alpha Drive. But, then he became a political emissary for Lucero and Wadley, both running for reelection this year. At the town’s second Wal-Mart design review he ensured the town that the county would “help” them acquire Alpha Drive. Poor decision. Who sent Starr from one commissioner to the other to establish this initiative? Mitchem? It violates the intent of the Sunshine Law. Poor decision. In the BoCC meeting last week where the commissioners finally decided to weigh in, Wadley gave an eloquent defense of private property rights. This was insincere, given that he voted to hand over a quit claim for Alpha Drive and deed to the town. This gives the appearance of a transfer of ownership, but no owner has been established. The Alpha Rockridge Metro District has been the defacto owner for years, maintaining Alpha Drive. This enables the town to take Alpha by eminent domain — a taking of private property. Poor decision. I don’t know which is more shocking, a Republican enabling the taking of private property or a Democrat taking property away from the 99 percent and giving it to the Walton 1 percent. Who are these guys serving? The town, of course. Poor decision. Wadley and Lucero refused to even consider adding a contingency requiring a Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) to make sure

there is no dark, empty building if Wal-Mart ever vacates, nor money for the Town to Lakes Trail, etc. to mitigate the negative impacts to the county constituents. Poor decision after poor decision. I am so grateful that we will have choices this coming election. It is time for a change! Mike Hayward and Julie Simmons will represent us. We can demand the representation we deserve. Susi Cochran

Guns and love Dear Editor: OMG! Is it possible that I must agree with Jim Sawicki? Jim opined last week that restrictive controls on guns in general, and assault weapons in particular, produce no reduction in gunrelated crime. I agree. There is no credible evidence that gun restrictions reduce gun violence. We fixate on the mass killings such as occurred at the Sikh temple, the Aurora theater, the Arizona political gathering, Virginia Tech, and Columbine. We miss the point with such fixation as those deaths, while tragic, are a very small portion of our homicides. CDC reports the U.S. gun-related death rate as 3 per 100,000; whereas, the United Kingdom’s rate is under 0.1 given their nationwide restrictive gun laws. The number of homicides and suicides from firearms in the U.S. approach those from vehicle accidents, and that’s a lot of death. We have more guns than people in our country, and I believe that abundance makes any local gun restriction ineffective in reducing death rates. Washington, DC, and Denver have restrictions with no positive results; whereas, New York City dramatically reduced its homicide rate using better policing with no change in gun laws. Our Constitution guarantees a right to bear arms, and that right was affirmed as an individual right by our Supreme Court. Gun restrictions might have an impact only if aggressively enforced on a national level, but there is no appetitive for federal control over our right to own and carry weapons. I don’t believe our gun ownership makes law abiding citizens measurably safer. I can’t recall any mass killer being taken down by a citizen with a concealed weapon. A few assassins were subdued by quick acting citizens using their bare hands. Most assassins were dispatched by police or committed suicide with their own weapons. Where does our freedom of gun ownership leave us? “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance (Thomas Jefferson).” We each must be alert to situations and persons that seem to pose a credible threat of taking lives. What is our protection in the long term? Love. Practicing the Lord’s greatest commandment would reduce bullying and isolation, provide more accessible mental health care for troubled citizens, and cause each of us to practice peaceful resolution of our differences. We can reduce gun violence by reducing violence in all its forms. If that is my belief, then let it begin with me. So, Jim Sawicki, I love you man. I apologize for any of my writings that made you out to be mean spirited. You are worthy of respect and all the rights of a citizen. Jay Davison

One left Dear Editor: Once there were two climate skeptics with creditable credentials, now there is one. Richard Lindzen, MIT professor of meteorology and global warming skeptic recently presented a seminar to Sandia Lab’s Climate Change and National Security organization. Professor Lindzen is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a fellow of the American Geophysical Union and the American Meteorological Society. (Sandia National Labs is the nation’s engineering lab. Sandia’s primary business is nuclear weapons, but also undertakes a wide variety of engineering projects that are in the national interest.) Professor Richard A. Muller is professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley and former MacArthur foundation fellow. Neither Professor Lindzen nor Professor Muller believes in computer models. Both cited the average temperature rise (about a degree F) during the 20th century as evidence for or against global warming. Lindzen says it doesn’t amount to much and

believes that in the future clouds will moderate the effect of global warming. Muller believed the same until he and his associates undertook the Berkeley project, a statistical study of 1.6 billion temperature reports from16 pre existing archives. (The study was partially funded by the billionaire climate change skeptics, the Koch brothers.) These data show that global land temperatures have increased by 1.5 degrees C over the past 250 years. The best fit of the data is with CO2 concentration. The graphs are published on Berkeleyearth.com. These data changed Muller’s from a skeptic to a believer. I believe the professors’ emphasis on average temperatures to be misguided. What is important in agriculture and engineering are the temperature and rain fall extremes. Before 1950, the numbers of record high and low temperatures were about equal. In the past decade, the numbers of record highs exceed the lows by a ratio of 2 to 1. This year the ratio is 9 to 1. (thinkprogress.org/climate). An early freeze or no rain spells the death kneel for a farmer. Engineers must design to the extreme case. This past summer in some locations, the cooling water was so warm, nuclear reactors had to reduce power. However, it is unwise to base conclusions on yearly records, as natural fluctuations may be misinterpreted Professor Muller points out that how fast global warming takes place depends to a large extent on China. China is adding a one gigawatt power plant every month. Awhile back, I suggested a one gigawatt power plant for Pagosa; recall this plant would burn 6,000 tons of coal with 30,000 tons of CO2 emission per day. Planet earth has only been on the stove for about ten years and every year, we turn the burner up a click. Who is right, Lindzen or Muller? The data favor Muller and global warming.

Personal Dear Editor: It boggles the mind how the Town Council and BoCC are ramrodding Wal-Mart through, despite many citizens’ disapproval of the project. What makes the whole matter even more difficult to digest are the lies, secret deals and lack of transparency that have been going on for many months. BoCC quit claims Alpha Drive over to the town when they don’t even own the land? And Alpha Drive is going to be the main road into WM? (That had to be a misprint in the paper.) Alpha Drive ownership has still not been resolved? There have to be records. Alpha Homeowners believe they own it because they have been paying for the upkeep of the road thru their Metro Road District taxes for many, many years. One has to ask why WM chose the site they have when it impacts so many homeowners, small businesses, is adjacent to wetlands, and obstructs a grand view? (Wouldn’t a better site be in the newly purchased vast acreage on 84 that the county has big plans for?) Question for Mayor Aragon and BoCC Chairman Lucero: Would you want want WM in your backyard? Remember, leaders, your rulings are supposed to reflect the wishes of the majority of citizens, not personal agendas or personal gains. Marilyn Falvey

A6 — The Pagosa Springs SUN — Thursday, August 16, 2012

Letters n Continued from A3

ers, don’t forget these people have rights and, yes, I bet they vote. I have a suggestion for the commissioners: send the senior center director to the same class you sent your road and bridge superintendent to learn how to deal with people at taxpayers’ expense. I have a couple of questions in regard to that, one being shouldn’t having good public relations skills be part of the job description and how many other employees would have been terminated for such behavior? I would like to add that the county has many good employees that are very professional and service oriented. I have called the road and bridge department and talked to the superintendent about road matters and was told things like it will never be done and there is no money to do so. (What kind of attitude is that?) On the bright side, we have choices. I voted for Clifford in 2008 and today I wish I could have my vote back, but instead like many others of his constituents, I will be casting my vote for Mike Hayward and Julie Simmons in November. I didn’t vote for Steve Wadley in 2006 and I won’t in November 2012 neither. It’s time for a change downtown, seems to happen every two to four years, who knows someday we might get it right. Chester Freeman

Rose-colored Dear Editor: Two weeks ago James Porter hit the nail on the head with his letter pointing out that this election is between “two diametrically opposite political philosophies” — Democrat (more government, higher taxes, increased spending, and more dependence on welfare) and Republican (less government, lower taxes, reduced spending, and individual responsibility). The selection of Representative Paul Ryan as Romney’s vice-presidential running-mate brings that difference even more into focus. So, if you are one of those folks who believe “the man” when he shows up at your door and says, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help;” if you see no hypocrisy in attacking Governor Romney for his lack of transparency because he has only released two years of tax returns, while President Obama continues to keep sealed his academic (Occidental, Columbia,and Harvard), Selective Service, passport, Illinois Bar and Illinois Senate records; if you think it is OK for Senator Reid to abdicate his Constitutional requirement to pass a budget by refusing to even discuss the House budget, let alone vote on it for three years; if you approve of the Senate (with the president’s encouragement) refusing to discuss and/or vote on any of the numerous bills passed by the House and forwarded to the Senate, thereby subverting our Constitutionally mandated legislative process; if you have no problem with the president legislating from the Executive Branch via Executive Orders and Executive Agency (EPA, HHS, DHS, etc.) regulations in violation of the Separation of Powers enshrined in our Constitution; if you think continuing with the status quo and blathering about the proposed Ryan budget “ending Medicare as we know it” is a viable approach to solving the problem of Medicare’s over $30 trillion in unfunded liabili-

ties, the increased strain of “Baby Boomer’”retirements, and the fact that the Hospital Insurance Trust Fund will be exhausted by 2024 (Medicare as we know it will die then if not reformed); if you think we can continue to run the government with over $1.5 trillion in deficit spending each year — with 40 percent of every dollar spent being borrowed, mostly from China and Japan; if you are comfortable with the fact that just the required or mandatory entitlement spending (Medicare, Social Security, interest on the debt, etc.) exceeds the total revenue collected by the IRS starting last year (basically all of the government’s daily operation to include the Department of Defense is paid for with borrowed money); if you believe that problem is the government does not collect enough taxes rather than the government spends too much and wastes too much; if you think ignoring problems and continuing to make personal attacks is the solution rather than engaging in a reasonable discussion of policy differences — well then you need to carefully lift your almost opaque rose-colored glasses (not too far, you might let in too much light) and make sure you can find the Democrat bubbles on your ballot this November. Jim Huffman

Bright Dear Editor: “This land is your land; this land is my land From California, to the New York Island …” In 1940, Woody Guthrie penned these words, set them to an old gospel song, and created a hymn to the dreams of the ordinary man. This vision of a verdant land in which we share the bounty and the sacrifice, living as a community, touches us all in our heart’s core. Now compare the vision of Scott Tipton, evidenced by his voting record. His very first vote was to defund virtually our every effort to help our less fortunate neighbors. For example, health care and nutrition for poor women and children, after-school and child care, substance abuse and mental health programs, community health clinics and nutrition assistance for low income pregnant women. Other defunding votes included Public Radio, NOAA and NASA. Meanwhile, he has voted 18 times to protect the $5 billion in subsidies to big oil, the world’s wealthiest and most profitable companies. He has voted 134 times against programs and funding to protect clean air and water, and 98 times to weaken the agency responsible for the protection of the air we breathe and the water we drink. And particularly ignominious is his sponsorship of HR1581, the complete give-away of our Roadless Forests, from which come that clean air and water, to industry. Three times he has voted for the Ryan Budget, which converts Medicare into a voucher system, deeply cuts health services for the poor, gives huge tax cuts to the very wealthy, and has been declared immoral by the Council of Catholic Bishops. Robin Hood in reverse is not what Jesus taught. Fortunately, we have a bright young alternative; his name is Sal Pace. Sal is a moderate, with a welldeserved reputation of working across the aisle in our State House. And most refreshing is his promise to replace petrified ideology with

moderation and rational thought. Christopher Isensee Durango

Deny Dear Editor: Town of Pagosa Springs’ Comprehensive Plan is incorporated in Town’s Land Use and Development Code (LUDC). Wal-Mart’s permit should be denied for following reasons: Walmart development violates LUDC requirements and intent of Comprehensive Plan: No meaningful dialog with citizens in impacted area. Exterior lighting plan omits required hours of illumination. WalMart seeks flexibility to be open 24 hours, but LUDC limits lighting until 11 p.m. Diverse land uses. Studies incorporated as appendices to Comprehensive Plan explicit about separating diverse land uses. Large horse properties and 24-hour superstores inconsistent land uses in immediate vicinity of one another. Established property owners’ rights transgressed. Buffering and screening. Broken buffer wall ineffective screen for Alpha residents living above and looking down upon proposed site. Aspen Village approved plan consistent with Comprehensive Plan. 93,000-square-foot building with large traffic volumes substantially violates plan. Comprehensive Plan requires major retail/commercial developments located away from uptown, keeping commerce healthy in core area and preventing “sprawl” in rural county areas. Second major grocery outlet uptown precludes major grocery store locating in core downtown. Comprehensive Plan establishes town’s commitment to protect scenic environment and beauty. Wal-Mart near golf course and scenic lake view corridor inconsistent with Plan. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers questions location choice, when alternative sites available. LUDC is explicit: road improvement costs must be bonded. Last Design Review Resolution gave one year warranty; LUDC requires three year warranty. Legal and technical violations and tainted process: Record corrupted by falsified notarized document, procured by fraud, relied upon by town to move Wal-Mart’s application forward. Deeded Open Space not legally reconfigured to support project. False statements made by James Dickhoff and Wal-Mart relied upon. Two deeds recorded in county records are false. Staff falsely alleged Wal-Mart won’t significantly alter traffic impacts to area, compared to previously-approved project. Traffic will increase by 20 percent, a threshold significant to CDOT. Alpha Drive not legally acquired by town. No documentation offered to substantiate county’s “ownership” of Alpha Drive when quit-claiming rights without warranty of title to town. Wal-Mart failed to document legal authority to place additional three accesses to its project from Alpha Drive; Plat (1972) restricts accesses to two. Planning board member Natalie Woodruff is conflicted and proceedings have been tainted. Woodruff must determine whether county’s quit claim is sufficient to

•Off of 750 ml and 175 ml bottles• give town authority to allow three additional accesses via Alpha Drive. Her office relied upon deeds showing a non-existent entity as co-owner of Open Space. As county assessor, she is arbitrator for homeowners whose property valuations may be appealed, due to impacts of a Walmart nearby. Enforceable Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) is required to assure project conforms to Comprehensive Plan and makes Walmart’s verbal representations fully enforceable. Must be negotiated in advance of project approval to be meaningful. If Planning Commission proceeds and approves project, remedy is available by appeal to Town Council, followed by appeal to state and/or federal courts, resulting in potentially expensive litigation and possibly resulting in civil or criminal charges.

Lengths Dear Editor: It is amazing to see the lengths that some people will go to find something, anything, they dislike about the Affordable Care Act. The diatribe by Mr. Bynum in last week’s SUN seems to single out the confusing and lengthy verbiage of the bill as his most major objection (Wow … a law written in legalese. Go figure!) and the fact that a single government administrator will be responsible for overseeing large portions of the law. But, as usual with the “Obamacare” critics, Mr. Bynum fails to point out what actual operating provisions of the law he finds so distasteful. Is it the ability to keep our kids on our policies until they are 26? The inability of insurance companies to refuse to pay when we get sick, to refuse us insurance for preexisting conditions? The requirement that insurance companies use the majority of our premiums to pay for actual healthcare instead of CEO bonuses? The exchanges that will allow us to compare companies and policies? The restrictions on premium increases? The requirement to pay for all preventive examinations? The removal of lifetime caps? Or is it the increase in Medicaid

for the poor and uninsured? Since a third of this country is already covered by government funded healthcare, what is it that people like Mr. Bynum so strongly object to? I would suspect it has less to do with government control and more about seeing the poor (whom they consider slackers and ne’erdo-wells), getting something free from their taxes. Once again, it is all about hate and fear, and less about the creation of a rational health care system, whom even their own candidate has praised in speeches overseas. I am sure there is prejudice amongst populations around the world ... sometimes even violent hatreds ... but this seems to the be the only country where a significant percentage of the population is willing to work against their own best interests, if only they can keep some subclass from getting the same benefits. As happened with Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, the overblown, outrageous and misguided attacks on healthcare reform will fade as the benefits are woven into the fabric of society; and eventually, the angry protagonists like Mr. Bynum will move on to some other dire threat to our freedoms, accept the benefits of others who have worked to improve things, all the while pretending they were for the programs all along. F John Lozen

Sheriff Dear Editor: Most of us realize that this republic is in trouble, but what do we do? One of the most powerful offices for a person to hold is that of sheriff. The county sheriff has the lawful and constitutional authority to defend county citizens from unlawful and unconstitutional actions, whether it be by the local government, courts, citizenry or the federal government’s encroachment into our lives. Every sheriff and deputy took an oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitutions of Colorado and the U.S. The county sheriff is the first line of defense for us here in Archuleta County, but what if he doesn’t stand for the constitution? We elected our sheriff, and we can hold him accountable to us and to defend us against tyranny, but what do we do when he refuses to attend a constitutional sheriff’s convention, or send a representative, even when it is fully paid for? Every sheriff in the U.S. received such an invitation, and many citizens across the U.S. are willing to pay for their sheriff to attend this convention so they understand what the people want from them. Do we want a constitutional sheriff, or do we just ignore the Constitution and accept the growing tyranny? If you want to join many others in encouraging Pete Gonzalez, or your local sheriff, to attend this conference sponsored by the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, Sept. 16-18, 2012, in Las Vegas, please email me at truth@ thecountyguard.org for brochures and website information to give the sheriff. We should easily be able to donate enough to cover all expenses for our sheriff or representative to attend, and join the growing sheriff movement to

defend local citizens against the growing threats we all face, and return to our Constitution. Will Archuleta County citizens step forward to get involved and encourage Pete Gonzalez to stand for us? Jeff Maehr

Museum Dear Editor: The logging and railroad industries played an important role in the economic and social development of our county in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The historical society museum has a display of items from this time period in our history, but would like to expand it. We have many visitors to the museum who are interested in this particular part of our history. We ask that anyone with memorabilia from these industries who would be will to loan or donate to the museum to please contact Shari Pierce at 946-3137. We ask that the items be from this area. If photos are available that could be scanned for our collection, that would be most welcome. Thank you to the community for helping us to preserve our history so that we may enjoy it now and in the future. Shari Pierce

Pledge Dear Editor: Pledge of Allegiance, so clean, so pure “back then.” By “back then,” I mean up to and during WWII. I was watching an old movie the other night, “Room for One More,” filmed when I was a teenager — the culture was so pure, so sweet, so sound, so respectful, so patriotic. What caught my attention was the Boy Scout meeting at the end of the movie when the troop recited the Pledge of Allegiance in a very solemn, meaningful tone: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republicfor which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all.” That described us and united us as a nation — simple and pure— ——“indivisible with liberty and justice for all.” But, then, following WWII, I suppose to express our thankfulness, the pledge was amended in this way: “One nation indivisible, under God, with liberty and justice for all.” It seems to me that that was the beginning of our political turmoil, as folks began to place their personal vision of God into their political decisions and slowly, over time, resulted in our current lack of unity for the good of all — extremism. As a devoted Christian, my heart aches for a return to our original Pledge of Allegiance, which served this country well during its early days of hardship, trials and tribulations. Listening to those Boy Scouts recite that original pledge warmed my heart, but also brought tears to my eyes. I bet most of you young folks never knew the original pledge. Too bad. Patty Tillerson

Immunization Dear Editor. I read the article in last Thursday’s paper about vaccines and our kids starting school. I was pretty frustrated when I read the article. That article only stated part of the Colorado immunization law. According to the National Vaccine Information Center (nvic. orb), “Exemption is obtained by

submitting to the student’s school a statement of exemption signed by one parent or guardian or the emancipated student or student of eighteen years of age or older that the parent, guardian or student is an adherent to a religious belief whose teachings are opposed to immunizations or that they have personal belief that is opposed to immunizations.” For these reasons: medical, religious and personal, a parent in the state of Colorado may not immunize their child and it’s actually not required to immunize our children (C.R.S. 25-4-903). The school systems and health organizations are always trying to re-word things in a manner so that parents feel as if they have no choice but to immunize. I know this is very controversial issue, but feel that parents should accurately know their rights when it comes to immunizations. I’m a mother of three and two don’t receive immunizations for medical reasons and one it’s my personal choice. Thank you for allowing me to express my concerns., April Unger

Origins Dear Editor: Those who deny the Christian origins of our country or have never been taught them are invited to consider the facts concerning just our nation’s capitol and compare them to the anti-religiosity of today. The capitol rotunda is adorned with huge Christian paintings: 1) Columbus landing, planting crosses, leading a prayer and naming the land San Salvador (Holy Savior); 2) the 1613 baptism of Pocahontas; 3) others illustrating prayer services and Bible studies; 4) the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, 29 of whom were preachers holding seminary degrees. In 1782, Congress allocated funds for the printing and distribution of 20,000 copies of its official Bible to schoolchildren and for public use. On Dec. 4, 1800, Thomas Jefferson authorized use of the rotunda for church services (eventually by four congregations with a weekly average attendance of 2,000 by 1857). President Jefferson himself attended and ordered the marine band to provide the church music. This rotunda use lasted 100 years. President Jefferson also had Congress authorize

funds for the construction of churches for use by Native American converts to Christianity. Then, President Garfield, a general, war hero and minister, in 1858 wrote a letter about preaching revivals and baptizing 31 people. (Source: David Barton, capitol tour guide and founder of Wall Builders, Aledo, Texas.) One recent example of today’s contrasting anti-religious protagonism is the Chick-fil-A incident. When Chick-fil-A supports traditional marriage, it is called “bigotry,” but when Amazon pledges 2.5 million dollars to help abolish traditional marriage, it is called “equal rights.” Fortunately, there is reason for hope when millions turn out to help Chick-fil-A set a world sales record and affirm their appreciation for the company’s stand on true Biblical marriage. One fallout of this was that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel attempted to cause a boycott of Chick-fil-A. However, under legal and public pressure, he settled for a statement that Chicago’s values are not Chick-fil-A’s, as if he is the judge of what is a value (defined as estimable) or that Chicago’s “values” are better than Chick-fil-A’s. Actually, his (and other’s) advocacy of same sex “marriage,” abortion, homosexuality and deprivation of religious freedom are not values at all but aberrations and violations of constitutional, natural and divine laws (e.g., Lev. 18:22 ff.; Jer. 1:5; Matt. 19:5). It is incumbent on each of us to imitate the Chick-fil-A supporters and help restore the values of our country’s historic Christian heritage. Our best opportunity will come in November when we should elect a president and congressman who will reverse the current immorality and advance moral principles. “The God who gave us life gave us liberty … Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?” — Thomas Jefferson.

that the reason for the increase in activity is not that the bear population has surged. Bear population, he explained, tends to be fairly stable due to female bears giving birth only every two years. This

year, however, there was an early snowmelt, then a late freeze. This affected the main food source for the black bear — oak brush acorns. Reid has been working in this area for over 20 years. During that time, he says there was only one

other year that has come close in terms of the number of bears being spotted in residential areas; and no other years with as many reports of bears in houses. In the past three weeks, increases in bear sightings could

site (www.visitpagosasprings.com) that will increase user interaction by incorporating a new phone app. “I call it my stalking tool,” Green joked. “This year we have started integrating with Internet Honey,” Green said. “It is a marketing analytic solution. It’s allowing all of our marketing efforts to go into one tool, so that we can start to see correlations between social media efforts and Visitor Guide requests. When we launch the new phone app., which is in development, we will be able to register GPS connectivity, so we will know, if they have requested a Visitor Guide, whether or not they actually come to Pagosa.” The QR code that is on all of the new trailhead signs around the area will also link into the system, so the

TTC can keep track of how many times those are scanned. Summer and winter itineraries for one, three and five-day visits have been developed and posted on the website, as well, which will allow families to plan their vacations before they arrive in Pagosa Country. The last thing Green reported on was “Red, White & Brews,” a music festival that took place on the Fourth of July in Yamaguchi Park, and was meant to generate revenue to raise money for fireworks. Unfortunately, due to fire restrictions, this year’s fireworks display was cancelled, but the fireworks will still be there for next year. The TTC publicly and wholeheartedly thanked festival organizer Melissa Buckley for her efforts. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

Construction collected $15,054 worth of tax revenue in June 2012, compared to $9,783 last year, an increase of $5,271 or 54 percent. Finally, mining collected $33,010 worth of tax revenue in June 2012, compared to only $6,048 last year, a significant increase of $26,962 or 446 percent. Some sectors, though very small in the overall scheme of things, also showed significant growth and may reflect the birth of new businesses over the last year, namely the health care and the educational services industries. Health care rose from only $15 worth of tax revenue in June 2011

to $571 this year, an increase of $556 or 3707 percent, and educational services went from $401 to $1,038, up $637 or 159 percent. As has been pointed out in an earlier SUN article by Jim McQuiggin, the one sector that has thrown a wrench into the system is transportation and warehousing, which shows $72,495 for last year, but only $556 for this year. This is why May and June are the only down months this year, but this anomaly is expected to disappear next month since there were no revenues from transportation and warehousing in July 2011. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

stop at the Visitor Center and how many people stay in local hotels, nor is there a relationship between those who stop at the center and those who have requested Visitor Guides. “I’ve actually found that eightythree percent of those who stop at the Visitor Center,” Green said, “did not request a Visitor Guide before they came to Pagosa.” Green also reported that a photo of a double rainbow over Lake Pagosa was featured during a newscast on Denver’s NBC affiliate, Channel 9, which generated significant exposure for the town. This was indicated by a jump to 5,144 fans for the Facebook page. The TTC is close to finishing enhancements to the tourism web-

8.7 percent. A number of sectors showed minor fluctuations, some up and some down, but with no real change compared to last year. These include manufacturing, wholesale trade and the information industry. However, a number of the medium-sized business sectors, especially construction and real estate, showed noteworthy improvement, and could be an indication of changes in the local economy. Real estate brought in $20,026 worth of tax revenue in June 2012, compared to $13,817 last year, an increase of $6,209 or 45 percent.

be expected and now might continue to rise until November. This is because the bears have entered hyperphagia, their preparatory phase for hibernation. During this time, bears need to consume 20,000 calories per day. To reach this caloric intake, bears must consume a massive amount of food. One acorn, Reid said referencing a recent study, contains about one calorie. That’s a lot of acorns. However, bears are very smart creatures. Learning the days a neighborhood puts out their trash and the houses that normally have easy-to-access trash cans filled with leftovers is easier for a bear than to scour a forest during a drought year, foraging for scant berries and acorns. If a bear has been a consistent nuisance in a neighborhood — entering houses or garages — wildlife managers such as Reid will set a trap in that neighborhood. The trap itself is a large metal cage. Once a bear is trapped, the wildlife officer is called. The bear is administered a tranquilizer. Reid explained that the officer wants to use the lowest dosage possible, because, when the bear is relocated 50 miles away, the officer must keep watch over the bear until it is fully awake and capable of defending itself. After the tranquilizer has put the bear into a sound sleep, the animal is tagged, with a tag in both ears, and has a chip placed just underneath the skin at the back of the head. “This is not something we like to do because we know what it means to the bear,” Reid said, and then explained that although a bear is relocated 50 miles away, typically the bear will find its way back. This summer, one relocated bear was back at the house in 52 hours. Bears, Reid said, have been known to find their way back from 200 miles way. “It’s normally not the bear’s fault. It’s the human’s,” Reid said, referring to problem bear-human encounters. This thought was reaffirmed as Reid was driving this reporter around neighborhoods in the Pagosa Lakes area, pointing out negligence in bear-proofing homes. One man came up, saying a bear comes to his neighbor’s house every night, because the neighbor leaves the trash sitting there. “I haven’t had one bear problem all year,” the man said, adding, “The bears aren’t doing anything wrong. It’s the humans.” In the neighborhoods, the majority of residents left their garbage cans outside with either no bearproof closures or inadequate ones. “Bears are very strong animals.

A bungee cord is not going to stop them,” Reid said. Leaving garbage out overnight in cans that are not bear-proof is a huge problem because it is an attractant to bears. Bears have supersensitive noses, able to smell something up to five miles away. Garbage, as everyone knows, has a smell. While to humans it might make the stomach turn, for a bear it means an easy way to pack on needed pounds for hibernation. Reid says that one option for people who have neither a garage nor shed in which to put their garbage can is to call the trash service and request a bear-proof receptacle. If a person leaves a garbage can out overnight, they are attracting bears to their property. It is the person’s responsibility to protect their house. If a bear is a nuisance, they should ask themselves, “Am I doing anything to attract bears to my property?” Because even if the person is, the bear will still be the one to blame and possibly will be killed for it. Colorado Revised Statute 33-6131 states that, “It is unlawful for any person to place food or edible waste in the open with the intent of luring a wild bear to such food or edible waste.” There is also Wildlife Commission Regulation 021, which reads, “No person shall fail to take remedial action to avoid contact or conflict with black bears, coyotes or fox, which may include the securing or removal of outdoor trash, cooking grills, pet food, bird feeders or any other similar food source or attractant.” However, before the person can be fined, the individual must first be given a warning. Reid said that proving intent is very difficult. Plus, he added, when looking at all the garbage cans left out by residents, neither he nor the other wildlife officers have the time to give that many warnings. Another common problem Reid pointed out are open garage doors and open first floor windows. Just this summer, the Pagosa area of Parks and Wildlife has received over 50 reports of bears inside homes. “Once a bear finds out there is more food inside, he’s going to try to go back,” Reid said. If a person just baked or cooked and leaves the window open, a screen will not keep a bear from getting inside the house. If there is a deck on an upper story and a tree nearby, a bear will be able to get onto that deck if it smells something. If there is a window open on that deck, a bear will have no problem getting inside.

If keeping the windows open is important during the summer, it is recommended that bars be put on the outside of the windows to keep the bears out. “This is bear country,” Reid said. “People who move here are moving to bear country.” Black bears are native to this area of Colorado and their presence in the area predates that of humans. Black bears may be brown, cinnamon or blonde in color. They are naturally shy and wary of people. Purcell explained that the reason trash is dragged into the woods by a bear is because the bear is trying to get away from people. He added that bears are not naturally nocturnal, but often travel at night in order to avoid humans. In order to keep bears wild and keep bear-human conflicts to a minimum, remember to do the following: • Keep garbage in a well-secured location; and only put out garbage on the morning of pickup. • Clean garbage cans with ammonia regularly to keep them odor-free. • If you don’t have secure storage, put items that might become smelly into the freezer until trash day. • Don’t leave pet food or stock feed outside. • Bird feeders should be brought in at this time of year — birds don’t need to be fed during the summer. • If you have bird feeders: clean up beneath them, bring them in at night, and hang them high so that they’re completely inaccessible to bears. • Don’t compost. Bears are attracted to the scent of rotting food — and they’ll eat anything. • Allow grills to burn for a couple of minutes after cooking to burn off grease and to eliminate odors. Clean the grill after each use. • Clean up thoroughly after picnics in the yard or on the deck. Don’t allow food odors to linger. • If you have fruit trees, pick fruit before it gets too ripe. Don’t allow fruit to rot on the ground. • Close garage doors. • Keep the bottom floor windows of your house closed when you’re not at home. • Do not keep food in your car; lock car doors. • Talk to your neighbors and kids about being bear-aware.

Corrections • An error in last week’s SUN (Page 1, “Be smart in bear country”) left a sentence that suggested residents, “wipe their garbage cans out with some pneumonia.” While the idea seems interesting — and some SUN staffers believe pneumonia could repel bears — it is not accurate. Wipe the garbage cans out with ammonia and, if you see this mistake mentioned by Jay Leno on

The Tonight Show, please tape the segment and bring it to The SUN office so we can watch it. • SUN staff incorrectly identified Susie Cochran as Susie Kleckner in an article in last week’s issue (Page 1, “BoCC supports town on Wal-Mart issue”) and apologizes for any inconvenience it may have caused.

PROST considers use of waning rec funds By Randi Pierce Archuleta County coffers for parks and recreation projects are waning, but the county’s staff and elected officials have an eye to the future, making for questions concerning that funding. It is no secret that assessed property valuations have declined in Archuleta County (and much of the country) following the economic downturn. Before that downturn, county voters approved a five-year ballot measure, known as 1A, that deBruced the county, meaning it could collect property tax revenues above limits imposed by the Taxpayer Bill of Rights. For four years, the county collected 1A funding for facilities, technology and training, roads, and parks and recreation. Then came the lower property value assessment and the sunsetting of the five-year measure. Now, the county is left with a finite amount of 1A funding that will no longer be bolstered by property tax revenues, and several large projects on the horizon, namely in the parks and recreation realm. Because of that, the commissioners and County Administrator Greg Schulte met with members of the county’s Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails (PROST) task force Monday evening to discuss how the remaining $358,000 from 1A should be spent, as well as other parks and recreation funding the county has saved up. PROST was originally formed after the passage of the 1A measure to recommend to the commissioners how the parks and recreation portion of the 1A funding should be spent,

mainly through vetting community projects and recommending them to the BoCC for funding, but the group has recently begun transitioning to a more advisory role, such as drafting park rules and regulations. “What we have is what we have,” Schulte said of the remaining 1A parks and recreation funds at the beginning of the meeting. Schulte noted that the county needs to be mindful about how remaining funds are spent, especially in light of three “priority” projects the county is working on. The first of those projects, Schulte explained, is the Town-to-Lakes Trail — a joint project with the Town of Pagosa Springs. The first phase of the trail, on the west side of Pagosa Springs, is moving into design work and is anticipated to be constructed in 2013. “That’s becoming a reality,” Schulte said of the project, which would ultimately connect downtown Pagosa Springs to the Pagosa Lakes area with a bike/pedestrian trail. The second project mentioned by Schulte is the county’s as-yetunnamed open space park near the airport (a naming contest is currently underway, see www.archuletacounty.org for details). A road leading to the 120-acre park and parking lot are slated for construction in September. The third project is the county’s 95 acres located near the fairgrounds, along U.S. 84. The BoCC is set to consider adopting a master plan for that site later this month. “We have quite the agenda for parks, recreation and open space,” Schulte said in summary. Schulte then noted that grants available for any of the above projects would likely require matching funds from the county, or that the

applications for grants would be bolstered by the county specifying funds for the project. In addition to 1A funding for parks and recreation, the county has a fund balance of $165,000 in the Conservation Trust Fund, which is lottery proceeds given to counties for recreation and outdoors projects. Schulte explained that the county receives $100,000 per year for the Conservation Trust Fund, with $30,000 of that given to the Town of Pagosa Springs through a five-year agreement that will end in 2014. The remaining $70,000 given to the county annually pays the debt service for the 2010 purchase of the 95-acre parcel. That leaves about $523,000 in funds not already appropriated for projects (funds that have been approved, but not paid out) for the county to put towards its three priority projects, Schulte said. Schulte then questioned how the county should treat the remaining funds. Should the county put a moratorium on funding small community projects? When would that moratorium take effect? Should some funds be kept aside to continue funding small community projects? Commissioner Clifford Lucero noted that his preference was to not eliminate funding for small projects completely, but for the county to be careful with its spending with the large projects on the horizon. Commissioner Steve Wadley agreed, suggesting that perhaps a specific amount of money could be set aside to fund small, worthy projects. Commissioner Michael Whiting, too, agreed, suggesting a cap on funding for projects to focus as

much of the funding on the large projects at their starts as possible, and stating that, even if the county does not receive another dime for parks and recreation, PROST serves a vital role in providing input for operating and management plans for county-owned parks. Whiting also suggested the county shy away from committing to more than one year of funding for small projects, stating he wouldn’t make a multi-year commitment to the community that he may not be able to keep. PROST member Larry Lynch noted that the board had also discussed a moratorium in light of waning funds, with PROST Chair Gwen Taylor adding that the board had discussed timing and limits on funding. Taylor suggested that an amount be appropriated for funding small projects throughout the remainder of 2012, with that pot of money topped off to $25,000 (an amount bandied about at the meeting) for 2013. In response to a question from PROST member Tom Carosello, Schulte said it is unlikely the county would be able to contribute any money from its general fund to parks and recreation projects in the coming years due to revenue decreases. Discussion then circled back to the consensus by the commissioners to have some funding available for small projects before the BoCC tasked the PROST group with determining what dollar amount should be set aside for small projects for the remainder of 2012 and the whole of 2013. But, the answer to the question of available funding for projects remains unanswered, with PROST unable to discuss the matter further at the meeting due to noticing requirements (discussion topics and possible decisions are to be included in an agenda published prior to meetings). PROST will likely discuss the matter at an upcoming meeting before presenting a recommendation to the BoCC in another public meeting for consideration. randi@pagosasun.com

A10 — The Pagosa Springs SUN — Thursday, August 16, 2012

Outdoors Staff Writer

Last week, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Agency added a designation to it’s final ruling on three rare Colorado plants. In the final rule, the agency has designated 50,000 acres of critical habitat for three rare Colorado plants, the Parachute beardtongue, DeBeque phacelia and the Pagosa-area-exclusive Pagosa skyrocket, scientific name Ipomopsis polyantha. It was in 2010 that the Pagosa skyrocket was listed as an endangered species, which has survived since the ice age. The summer blooming plant grows between 30 and 60 centimeters tall and generally has white flowers speckled with purple. “Currently occupied acres do not adequately provide for the conservation of the species, because of a lack of redundancy,” the rule states. “We consider these units essential for the conservation of the species,” the rule continued. In order for the Pagosa skyrocket to grow and survive, there must be six physical and biological features in place: 1) Mancos shale soils; 2) elevation from 6,400 to 8,100 feet, with suitable precipitation; 3) cold,

dry springs, and winter snow; 4) plant communities comprised of barren shales, open montane grassland understory at the edges of open Ponderosa pine or clearings within the ponderosa pine; 5) good pollinator habitat, including ground and twig nesting areas, connectivity between areas and the availability of other floral resources; and, 6) light to moderate or intermittent disturbances to the soil. Out of the 50,000 acres, four units totalling 9,641 acres in and around Pagosa Springs have been designated critical habitat. The majority of the land, 6,975 acres, is private land. However, critical habitat designations do not affect activities by private landowners unless there is federal funding or authorization. In the pages of comments published in the final rule, there are several comments suggesting that critical habitat should not be designated on any private lands. The response from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Agency is that, while there are few protections for plants on private lands, the language of the Endangered Species Act states that the designation must be placed on lands, “on which are found those physical or

biological features essential to the conservation of the species.” The remaining land ownership is broken down as following: U.S. Forest Service 1,710 acres, Town of Pagosa Springs 599 acres, Archuleta County 115 acres, State Land Board 110 acres, Colorado Department of Transportation 63 acres, Federal Bureau of Land Management 42 acres and Colorado Department of Parks and Wildlife 28 acres. The Pagosa Springs Unit is the largest of the four unities at 6,456 acres. The unit is located at the junction of U.S. 160 and 84, south along U.S. 84, west along County Road 19 and east along Mill Creek Road. This unit has the majority of Pagosa skyrockets. The rule states that, “While these lands currently have the physical and biological feature essential to the conservation of Ipomopsis polyantha, because of a lack of cohesive management and protections, special management will be required to maintain these features.” The main threat to the flower in this unit is agricultural or urban development. The Dyke Unit, 1,475 acres, is located at the junction of U.S. 160 and Cat Creek Road near the historic town of Dyke. The main threats to

the flower in this unit are highway maintenance, grazing, agricultural use, Bromus inermis encroachment, potential development and a road that was constructed through the skyrocket population. The Eight Mile Mesa Unit, 1,146 acres, is completely on lands in the Pagosa Ranger District. This unit is located on the west side of U.S. 84 just south of the intersection of U.S. 160 and 84. Threats to this unit include a road running through the site, recreational use, horseback riding, dispersed camping, and hunting and firewood gathering. The O’Neal Hill Botanical unit is the smallest unit, consisting of only 564 acres of land in the San Juan National Forest. The threats to the species in this unit are road maintenance, low levels of recreation and a utility corridor. Since much of the critical habitat is on private lands, special management consideration are required. The special management options for the Pagosa skyrocket as presented in the published rule are introducing new Ipomopsis polyantha, establishing permanent conservation easements, developing zoning regulations that could protect the species, establishing conservation agreements on private and Federal lands to identify and reduce threats to the species, eliminating the use of smooth broom and other competitive species in areas already occupied by the flower, promoting and encouraging habitat restoration, developing other regulatory mechanisms to further protect the species, placing roads and utility lines away from the species, minimizing heavy use of habitat by livestock and minimizing habitat fragmentation.

The Gopher Meadow Weed Pull By Phyllis Wheaton Special to The SUN

Thanks to seven volunteer weed warriors who battled weeds in Gopher Meadow last month, the weed population and potential for spread in the Turkey Springs area of the San Juan National Forest is greatly reduced. The four-acre meadow had an unhealthy infestation of invasive musk and Canada thistles. Volunteers Al and Stephany Bouchier, Diane Gutman, Gary Hopkins, Mike and Nancy Ray and Ian Roth removed a huge seed source of the thistle, which will limit its spread in an area bisected by a popular bicycle trail. The volunteers rode their bicycles to the project site and were met by Pagosa Ranger District representative Paul Blackman; recreation, trails and wilderness staff; and Ros Wu, wilderness program manager, who provided tools and trash bags. Musk thistle lives two years and reproduces only by

seed, producing up to 20,000 seeds per plant. Canada thistle spreads through its root system and with seeds. Volunteers minimized reproduction and spread by removing seed heads. To destroy seed viability, all seed heads were put in plastic bags with a bit of water, then bags were sealed and placed in the sun. This helps the seeds rot before they are disposed of in the trash. The weed problem in Gopher Meadow has been strikingly reduced, but has not been eradicated and will require follow-up treatment. If you would like to help manage invasive weed infestations, learn to identify invasive thistles (not all thistles are invasive), carry a plastic bag with you when you hike or ride in the forest, pop off those seed heads and dispose of them properly. For information about volunteering for similar projects, or to do surveys for invasive species adjacent to trails within Pagosa Ranger District, contact Ros Wu at 264-1529.

Pagosa veterinarian serves with U.S. endurance riding team By Sophie Kennedy SUN Intern

Pagosa veterinarian Dr. Dwight Hooton of Elk Park Animal Hospital flew to the United Kingdom Wednesday, Aug. 15, where he will serve as team vet for the USA team at the Longines FEI World Endurance Championships at Euston Park, near Newmarket, Suffolk, UK, beginning today. The main event, which takes place Saturday, Aug. 25, is a 100-mile race that must be completed within 18 hours. It is the closest competition to the Olympics in endurance horse riding. If and, as Hooton says, when, endurance riding becomes an Olympic sport, the World Endurance Championships would be the qualifying race. Hooton, who has been practicing in Pagosa Springs for the last four years, will be responsible for the medical care of the U.S. team’s seven horses, six of which will compete among 160 horses from all seven continents.

Hooton, who is also the team’s acupuncturist, will begin daily evaluations of the team’s horses as soon as he arrives and will continue to do so up to the day of the race. Seven and one-half to eight hours later, when the top horse/rider teams begin to cross the finish line, Hooton will resume evaluations and apply recovery treatment to the horses before they return to the United States. This year, Hooton’s role is especially important as this is the first time in 14 years that the United States team is in a position to bring home a team medal. “This year, our biggest competitors — France, Germany, the UAE and Australia — expect us to be serious competition and we expect to be on the podium,” explained Hooton. The coach of the U.S. team called on Hooton to serve because of his experience as a vet, acupuncturist, chiropractor (although he will not be serving as the team chiropractor) and former endurance riding judge.

Hooton was also considered an ideal candidate for team vet because of his experience in lameness diagnosis and treatment. Lameness is the most common cause for a horse’s failure to complete an endurance race. Hooton has been a vet since 1987. He received his degree from Colorado State University. He became certified in and began practicing acupuncture in 1992. Though Hooton may be an experienced and sought-after endurance vet, his experience as an endurance rider is less impressive. “I did one endurance ride and realized that it was way too much work for me,” he said. “Also, I happen to be six feet six inches tall and weigh two hundred pounds. I’m not exactly built to be a competitive rider, I’m just too big. So, I just stick to trail riding.” That, and helping World Endurance Championship riders bring home the world title.

Navajo State Park offers two programs for kids on Aug. 18 By Janet Clawson Special to The SUN

Fall is approaching and soon nature’s creatures are going to be seeking extra food. Learn how to make a pine cone bird feeder to attract birds using just pine cones, peanut butter and bird seed. Pine cone bird feeders are a good way to invite feathered friends to your backyard.

This project is easy enough for even young children to enjoy. Bird lovers can gather at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 18, at the Rosa Campground Visitor’s Service Building/Showers. Budding artists can gather at 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug.18, at the Rosa Campground Visitors Service Building/Showers, and learn about another culture and the unique art form called Gyotaku. Gyotaku

(guh-yo-tah-koo) is the Japanese art of fish painting. It was developed more than a century ago as a fisherman’s method of recording the size and species of his catch. People developed this technique since they often could not read. Freshly caught fish were painted with a non-toxic ink, and covered with a piece of rice paper. The paper was then carefully smoothed down, and removed to make an exact size copy of the fish. Once the print was completed, the fish could be washed and prepared for a meal. By using this technique, Japanese fishermen were able to both record and eat their catch.

Since its useful beginning, Gyotaku has become an art form. Prints are no longer just plain black ink outlines, but colorful reproductions of the original species. Gyotaku art has been displayed at museums around the world. This could give you some new perspective on the concept of art and how it can be a part of everyday life. Children of all ages are welcome to attend. All events in the park are free with a Colorado State Parks pass — either a $7 day pass or a seasonal pass. Call 883-2208 for more information or log on to the park’s website at www.parks.state. co.us/Parks/Navajo.

Busy beavers and fantastic fish on Williams Creek interpretive walk By Robert Emmons Special to The SUN

Join in on an adventure along Williams Creek where you will see a real, live beaver dam, as well as talk about fish in the creek and the macroinvertebrates that they eat. This walk will take place Tuesday, Aug. 21, from 9-11 a.m. Be prepared to hike through willows and brush off trail and possibly get your boots muddy. Wear walking shoes/boots, a hat, and bring sunscreen and drinking water. Long pants and bug spray are a must. To get there, drive north on Piedra Road (CR 600) to FR 631 for about 20 miles to the Bridge Campground. Park off to the side of campground entrance (do not block gate). Carpooling is suggested as there is limited parking space. Please leave your furry friends at home.

Drought conditions and low water flows throughout the state have Colorado Parks and Wildlife reminding anglers to monitor water temperature when they are out fishing. Several water-specific recommendations have already been released this summer; however, aquatic biologists recognize that fish can be stressed due to temperatures in many different coldwater fishing locations. “Handling fish in waters that are 68 degrees and above can put undue stress on them, causing mortalities and compromising the fishery as a whole,” said Ken

Local Forrest Henry Rackham, of Pagosa Springs, was named to the Dean’s List at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., for spring term 2012. Rackham is a junior majoring in environmental studies.

Last weekend, Aug. 10-12, Zach Graveson, 18, a recent graduate of Pagosa Springs High School, competed in the Mountain States Cup Series Final in Telluride and took home the state championship in downhill mountain biking, age 15-18 class. Like many children, Graveson learned to ride a bike when he was very young, but he has only begun to mountain bike seriously in the last three years. In that time, he has suffered a broken collarbone three

Mamie Lynch, right and inset, played for the All American Red Heads, the first professional women’s basketball team, for several seasons in the early 1950s. The team is set to be inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame in September.

The Red Heads are one of 12 in the class of 2012 to be inducted into the hall — an honor that requires 18 of 24 votes from the Honors Committee for election into the hall. The group will be inducted on Friday, Sept. 7. Part of that history-making team is Lynch. Lynch began playing with the Red Heads in 1950, when she was a senior in high school, and played for the team during the 1951 and 1952 seasons. “I think it’s pretty good recogni-

tion of the team as a whole,” Lynch said of the honor. For Lynch, being on the team was a first foray into the real world, traveling, being on her own and playing the game she loved as part of the seven-member team. “Every day was a beautiful memory, really, because I was a little girl from Arkansas who had hardly been on my own,” Lynch said. Lynch said she will probably not be able to make the ceremony to see the induction. Lynch said the induction and

events surrounding it are pricey ($750 to attend the induction), and with having only played on the team for a few seasons, she feels the prices are too high. But, there or not, Lynch, along with the rest of the Red Heads, continue to be honored for their part in basketball history. The Red Heads were inducted in to the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Tenn., in 1999, and, in 2011, were the Trailblazers of the Game recipients. randi@pagosasun.com

Pagosa’s Graveson wins mountain bike title By Sophie Kennedy

Mamie Lynch a member of history-making team In 1950, Mamie Lynch, now a Pagosa Springs resident, began playing on a basketball team that had already been making history for 14 years — the All American Red Heads. The team was similar to the Harlem Globetrotters — a women’s entertainment team that played men’s teams, using men’s rules — and was in existence from 1936 until 1986. According to the team’s website, they beat the men’s teams about 80 percent of the time. Now, that team is making history again by being the first women’s basketball team inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (named after the game’s inventor, James Naismith) this September. The Hall of Fame is located in Springfield, Mass., near where Naismith first introduced the new game to his P.E. class of 18 men at the YMCA International Training School on Dec. 21, 1891. According to a press release from the hall, the team was the first professional women’s basketball team. “The All American Red Heads are known as the female version of the Harlem Globetrotters and the first women’s professional basketball team. The team regularly played more than 200 games per season, winning 70 percent of them while touring thousands of miles reaching 49 states, Canada and the Philippines. Over six decades (1936 to 1986), the team broke social barriers and stereotypes playing in small towns and rural hamlets, as well as Madison Square Garden and Chicago Stadium,” the press release stated.

He took home the title after finishing first in the final race of the series in Telluride. Graveson finished with a time of 3 minutes, 14 seconds, beating 21 competitors, including six riders from Telluride who regularly ride the course. The points Graveson scored at the final race, combined with those in three previous races, put him in first place in the series by 30 points.

Pagosa’s Zach Graveson crosses the finish line at last Saturday’s Mountain States Cup Series race at Telluride. Graveson placed first in the Mountain States Cup Series Final and took home the state championship in downhill mountain biking, age 15-18 class.

Angel Fire, N.M., and placed 12th after crashing mid-race. But, by his second race, Graveson turned things around; he finished first in the race at Crested Butte, over the weekend of June 22-24. Things continued to look up for him when he finished second in his race at Aspen. With his new state champ title, Graveson also received a state champ jersey, gear for his bike and, of course, “some medals and stuff.” Coming off this big win, Graveson was quick to thank his family for their constant support, Peddle and Powder for taking care of him and being a great sponsor and, as he says, most importantly, “I have to thank the Lord. I couldn’t do it without Him.” Graveson’s sponsor, Peddle and Powder, a local shop in Pagosa,

has been sponsoring him for the last two years, providing him with parts, service and lots of support. “He’s an awesome kid, really phenomenal. We are so proud of him. We have been so blessed to sponsor him; he has really brought us a lot.” says Lisa Pherson, who owns the shop with her husband, Bill. The couple are so devoted to Graveson they shut down their shop the last two weekends to attend his races. Lisa shared some information, which Graveson failed to divulge. “Zach won that race despite an injury. During his Saturday practice, he wrecked hard, ripped his shorts and injured his hip and thigh. But he got up the next morning and raced anyway. He just eats, drinks and sleeps downhill.”

FOOTBALL Big changes ahead with Pirate football travel, league By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

The Pagosa Springs High School football team is facing a dramatically different schedule for the upcoming season due to a change in leagues mandated by the Colorado High School Athletics Association. “We are a 2A school in football,” explained PSHS Athletic Director Sean O’Donnell. “For all other sports we are 3A, but only 2A for football.” PSHS is in the Intermountain League, according to Archuleta School District Superintendent Mark DeVoti, but since the only 2A schools for football left in the league after last year’s student count were Bayfield and Pagosa, both schools were forced to move to the Western Slope League. “From the league we had last year,” O’Donnell said, “Centauri High School, Salida High School, and Buena Vista High School all have less than 300 kids this year, so they have all dropped down to 1A.” Monte Vista was already down at the 1A level last year. “There’s a committee at CHSAA that decides the cut-offs for all of the different classifications,” O’Donnell explained. “It turns out this year that the cut-off number was 300 for 2A football.” He expressed frustration at the arbitrary nature of this decision, but he elaborated that statewide CHSAA had to have a certain minimum number of schools in each classification. “Cortez played in our league last year, but they have close to 800 kids, so they are a 3A football school.” O’Donnell went on to explain that Cortez had petitioned to be able to play at the 2A level last year, but according to CHSAA rules they are only allowed to do that for one year, and now they are back up at the 3A level. “Then Alamosa ended up going to Colorado Springs to be in the TriPeaks league,” O’Donnell continued, “which left Pagosa and Bayfield sitting down here in an island all by ourselves without a league.” He explained that Alamosa was originally in the Tri-Peaks league; they had not been in the Intermountain League for very long, and they didn’t waste any time going back, because they were used to playing those schools. O’Donnell related that, in the end, “We were asked to do what was best for the classification, not necessarily what’s best for us, so we ended up being in the Western Slope League, which created a phenomenal amount of travel and expense.” “We had a dilemma,” explained DeVoti. With the prospect of some extremely long road trips, “Do you send an extra bus driver? Do you pay for a hotel room and stay overnight? Or do you drop out of athletics?” There were six 2A schools in the Western Slope league: Grand Valley, Coal Ridge, Basalt, Aspen, Gunnison and Olathe. “They weren’t exactly happy about Pagosa and Bayfield coming in, either,” O’Donnell said. “They’re very upset. They don’t want to have to drive down here.” Things could have been much

worse for Bayfield and Pagosa if O’Donnell hadn’t stood his ground with the Western Slope schools. “Bayfield and I had to fight for them to change the schedule,” he explained. The Western Slope teams were going to flip-flop their schedules, where everyone a team played at home last year would play away this year, then just plug in Pagosa and Bayfield. This meant that Pagosa and Bayfield would have been making all of the trips up north, but none of the northern schools would have had to travel down here. “I appreciate the fact that the Gunnison football coach stood up and supported us and came up with a better idea,” said O’Donnell. The athletic directors worked out a system of travel partners, where two schools that are close to each other will travel to play another pair of neighboring schools one week, then the next week the pattern will switch and those two schools will do the travelling. “Chances are it could snow,” O’Donnell worried. “That’s why we scheduled it the way we did. We put those long trips at the beginning of the season, so we’ll be going to Aspen the second week of September.” Lizard Head pass and Leadville are possible routes, but if all goes well and the weather cooperates, the plan is to go over Red Mountain Pass. “The worst-case scenario is you’ll have to go all the way to Moab and then to Grand Junction to go around, which is a possibility.” Not only was the route an issue, but the logistics of the trip were a concern. “We investigated different ways of making the trip,” O’Donnell said. The cheapest way would be to have two bus drivers, with one driving up to the game while the other slept, then switching so the fresh driver made the trip back after the game. However, the cheapest way is not always the safest, O’Donnell explained. “You’re talking about a guy that’s going to get on the bus at six o’clock in the morning, with the other bus driver and the rest of the team, and he’s going to spend the whole day riding all the way to Aspen. He’s not going to sleep. There’s no room for him to lie down and sleep and relax. He’s going to stay awake, and then we’re going to put him on a bus at eleven o’clock at night in Aspen and tell him to come all the way home in the middle of the night.” DeVoti also brought up the point that as soon as the bus gets back to Pagosa after a long trip from Aspen, the kids still have to get in their own cars and drive home. O’Donnell continued, “It came down to, I don’t care what it costs; we’re not going to be a news story. We don’t want that publicity. If we’re going to put students at risk to save money, we’re going to have a hard time defending that.” Another option O’Donnell considered was based on what Durango does. “If you wanted to give your kids the absolute best competitive

advantage, the best thing would be to go up Thursday, stay the night and then play Friday.” As a 5A school, Durango is forced to travel great distances to find teams to compete against, so the team will often have a short practice after school on Thursday, get on the bus, travel as far as they can, stay Thursday night in a hotel, then get up Friday morning to finish the trip. That way the players are fresh, relaxed and ready to play the game. “But then you’re still talking about staying again Friday night,” O’Donnell said. “We’re already in declining budgets. This was a frustrating situation. We looked at it every different possible way we could and this is the way it worked out. It was definitely not, in any way, shape or form, our choice.” There had to be a compromise between not paying for hotel rooms at all, which is not safe, or paying for two nights’ worth of hotel rooms, which is too expensive. PSHS Coach Olin Garrison laid out the plan. “We’re going to leave at about six o’clock in the morning,” he said, “and we’ll make some scheduled stops along the way to get out and stretch and have lunch. Then, hopefully, we’ll get there in time to go through a pretty good stretching routine and get them back into the right frame of mind to play a football game.” Garrison explained that the bus can hold 40 people, and there will be 30 players between varsity and JV, along with himself, three assistant coaches and one volunteer. Added to this will be the gear and equipment, which will not all fit in the compartments below the bus. “It’s going to be pretty demanding to keep focused,” Garrison said, “especially with teenagers.” Garrison had another idea to help mitigate the cost of getting a hotel room for the entire team after the game. “Like with Aspen, we’ll find a smaller town, away from Aspen, that’s not quite as expensive to stay the night.” Garrison explained that there will be four games that will require travel: Aspen, Coal Ridge, Gunnison and Alamosa. However, only Aspen and Coal Ridge are far enough away to force an overnight stay. With three assistant coaches and one volunteer, Garrison said there is no need for additional chaperones. “I’m old enough and grumpy enough,” Garrison laughed. “They can quadruple me.” “The way we get out of this,” O’Donnell explained, “is we either have to change the cutoff number between 1A and 2A so those schools in our area move up to where we are, or their numbers need to come up so that they move back into our classification, or, if 1A football had a different method of choosing their playoff qualifiers, they might be interested in doing a combination league.” Out of the three options, the last one is not only the most cost-effective, but also the only one that there is any way of controlling. “This is not unheard of,”

career at the college level. When asked what he thinks his prospects are for next year, Graveson responded, “I’m feeling really good about it all. I’m really exited to race. Moving up to the collegiate level means I’ll be able

to compete in more advanced races on a national level. And, for the first time, I’ll have a coach to teach me how to eat and train and really take myself to the next level. I’ll be able to get more hours on the bike than ever.”

O’Donnell said. “They do multiclassification leagues.” However, because each classification has a different method for determining who qualifies to be in the playoffs, “It’s hard sometimes to even get those schools to play us,” O’Donnell complained. “If they’ve got a team they think is going to be good enough to make the playoffs, those schools will typically not play the 2A schools because it hurts their chances of making the playoffs, which is frustrating.” Another possibility that was considered would be to play independently. “There is a wildcard system,” according to O’Donnell. “You earn points for winning or losing according to the classification of the team you’re playing and their record. If you beat teams with good records, you get more points. That’s how you qualify for the playoffs. It was feasible, but then we couldn’t schedule anybody, because from about the middle of September on, everyone else has league games, and there’s no one to play.” O’Donnell explained that local school officials tried every option possible before finally arriving at the current plan. “We even investigated splitting that Western Slope League in half, into a north and a south, and just trying to do something with Olathe, Gunnison, Pagosa and Bayfield. That didn’t work either. That fell through.” O’Donnell finished by saying, “I know there’s a perception out there that we wanted to be in this league.” However, he emphasized, “It is not by choice.” Garrison had the last word on the subject: “These are some good football teams. Olathe has been in the state playoffs before. Aspen’s in the playoffs a lot. Coal Ridge is pretty good. We have to raise the bar, and we’ve already talked to our kids about that.” He finishes by cautioning, “We got stuck in with the Western Slope League, and we’ve got to do a lot of travelling, but we’ll just have to handle it. I don’t want too much said about it, because I don’t want our players to use it as an excuse.” ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

Golf season underway for high school athletes By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

Golf season is underway for Pagosa Springs High School athletes, who are rounding out their first tournament today in Montrose. By next week, the team will be nearly half way through its season schedule. The team began its first tournament of the season in Montrose at The Bridges on Wednesday, followed by play today, Thursday, at Black Canyon Golf Club. Friday, the team will head to Alamosa for a tournament at Cattails Golf Course. After a few days off, the team will head for a round at Conquistador Golf Course in Cortez on Wednesday, Aug. 22. The next day, the Pirates will host their sole home tournament of the year at Pagosa Springs Golf Club. The tournament is open to spectators, whom Coach Mark Faber encourages to attend the tournament to cheer on the home team.

By the time school starts in early September, the Pirate golfers have six days of contested play left. On Sept. 6, the team heads to La Veta for a day at the Grandote Peaks Golf Club. The next day, the squad will play at the Monte Vista Golf Club before taking on a tournament closer to home on Sept. 10, at Hillcrest Golf Club in Durango. On Sept. 11, the team will play in Rye, returning to the location on Sept. 17 and 18, where the team will play at the Hollydot Golf Course. State play is scheduled for Oct. 1 and 2 at Pinehurst Golf Club in Denver. All tournaments are currently scheduled for 9 a.m. shotgun starts. Working toward the state tournament in October are 11 PSHS athletes — four upperclassmen and seven underclassmen. Leading the team is senior Reyes McInnis, who is the team’s only returning golfer to have made the state tournament last season.

“I’m counting on him to do some good this year,” Faber said, adding he hopes McInnis will lead the team. Joey Campbell, Casey Mudroch and Jaylon Ochoa are all returning to the team this year as juniors. A bevy of sophomores includes returning golfers Jake Keuning and Eric MedinaChavez, as well as newcomers Tyler Manzanares, J.C. Parsons, Taylor Heitz and Kennan Goebel. A sole freshman, Ethan Hunt, rounds out this year’s squad. And while the team looks to be a mix of experienced and new players, all are working to improve. “It’s early in the season, but they’re all working hard,” Faber said. Results from this week’s play will be available in next week’s issue of The SUN, as will future results. randi@pagosasun.com

VETERAN’S CORNER

Post-9/11 GI Bill celebrates start of fourth year By Raymond Taylor SUN Columnist

August marks the third anniversary of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, and since it was implemented Aug. 1, 2009, the Department of Veterans Affairs has provided educational benefits to 773,000 Veterans and their family members. “This is one of the most important programs helping our Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans reach their educational goals,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki. “We’re proud this important benefit is making such a big difference in the lives of so many veterans.” The Post-9/11 GI Bill pays tuition and fees on behalf of Veterans or eligible dependents directly to the school in which they are enrolled. Eligible participants also receive a monthly housing allowance and up to $1,000 annually for books and supplies. The program also allows eligible servicemembers to transfer their benefits to their spouses and/or children. The program provides a wide range of educational options, including undergraduate and graduate degrees, vocational/technical training, on-the-job training, flight training, correspondence training, licensing and national testing programs, entrepreneurship training, and tutorial assistance. All training programs must be approved for GI Bill benefits. “For over 68 years, GI Bill programs have shaped and changed the lives of servicemembers, veterans, their families and survivors by helping them reach their educational goals,” said Allison A. Hickey, Under Secretary for Benefits. “Benefits provided under the Post-9/11 GI Bill will continue to shape and change the lives of

veterans by helping them build a stronger foundation for their careers.” The Post-9/11 GI Bill is the most extensive educational assistance program since the original GI Bill was signed into law in 1944. Since its inception, VA has paid more than $20 billion in benefits to veterans and their family members. For the 2012-2013 academic year, 1,770 colleges and universities are supplementing Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits by participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Under the Yellow Ribbon Program, degree-granting institutions make additional funds available for a veteran’s educational program without an additional charge to their GI Bill entitlement. To make up the difference for those students whose tuition and fees exceed what the Post-9/11 GI Bill covers, institutions can voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with VA to designate an additional amount of funding, and VA will match that amount. VA is seeking legal authority to trademark the term GI Bill. President Obama signed an executive order on April 26, directing VA and the Department of Defense to undertake a number of measures to, “stop deceptive and misleading” promotional efforts that target the GI Bill educational benefits of servicemembers, veterans, and eligible family members and survivors. In June, the attorneys general of several states gave VA the rights to the GIBill.com website after the original owners agreed to give up the Internet site to settle a lawsuit by the states. For more information on the Post-9/11 GI Bill and other Veteran education programs, visit http://www.gibill.va.gov.

Summer must-read for kids? Any book at all By Carole Howard

us avoid that problem.

Has your child cracked a book since school let out? Several studies have documented a “summer slide” in reading skills once kids go on summer vacation. The decline in reading and spelling skills are greatest among low-income students, who lose the equivalent of two months of school each summer, according to the National Summer Learning Association, an education advocacy group. And the loss compounds each year. New research offers a surprisingly simple and affordable solution to the summer reading slide. In a three-year study, researchers at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville found that simply giving low-come children access to books — and allowing them to choose books that interested them — had a significant effect on the summer reading gap. Children who chose reading books and those who picked free activity and puzzle books were tracked for three years. Those who had access to free reading books posted significantly higher test scores than the children who received activity books. The effect — 1/16th of a standard deviation in test scores — was equivalent to a child attending three years of summer school. The difference in scores was twice as high among the poorest children in the study. One of the notable findings of the study was that children improved their reading scores even though they typically weren’t selecting the curriculum books or classics that teachers normally assign for summer reading. That conclusion confirms other studies suggesting that children learn best when they are allowed to select their own books.

ColorFest tickets on sale now: Many activities planned By Mary Jo Coulehan SUN Columnist

Check the calendar: just around the corner are back-to-school days, Labor Day with the Four Corners Folk Festival and the Ignacio Bike Week, leaves turning to their autumnal hues ... and ColorFest activities. That means that both Passport to Pagosa Wine and Food Festival and Bands, Brews, Etc. tickets are now on sale for the Sept. 7-9 festival. Tickets are available online and at the downtown Chamber office. Another fantastic year featuring a variety of wines, scrumptious food, award-winning brews, and hot air balloons will fill the weekend with food and fun. The weekend kicks off Thursday, Sept. 6, with some wine dinners at a few restaurants around town. Last year’s wine dinner at Nello’s was sold out and hugely popular. If you have family or friends in town, this is a great way to show off one of our restaurants and get an early idea about some of the wines to be served on Friday. Restau-

rants will be announced soon. On Friday, Sept. 7, the big tent goes up on the athletic field downtown and we’ll host the popular Passport to Pagosa Wine and Food Festival. Wines from around the world will be paired with foods from some of Pagosa’s best restaurants and caterers. This is a creative time for the restaurants as, oftentimes, this crowd is the guinea pig in a test of some new items that will be added to the restaurant menus. Attendees will receive food and drink tickets to the event, as well as a collectable wine glass and reusable plate — great for the backyard or boat. Bob Hemenger will provide this year’s evening entertainment. Tickets are $40 in advance. On Saturday, the morning begins with the annual hot air balloon mass ascension in downtown Pagosa Springs. The photo opportunities are unparalleled, with a backdrop of mountains, hot springs and the river. At noon, bring your children to the second annual Kiddie Karaoke contest. Get the kids on stage and let them sing

their hearts out with a huge array of songs to choose from. Beginning at 3 p.m., the Bands, Brews, Etc. blowout begins with microbrews from around the region. At this time, there will also be live music, wine to be purchased by the glass, delicious food from vendors and activities for the kids. The event will continue until about 7 p.m., when we wait for the balloons to glow — always a highly anticipated and photographed event. On Sunday, the festivities end with another hot air balloon mass ascension, this time on the west side of town. Mass ascensions start at 7:30-8 a.m. and are a great way to start your day. If you are interested in volunteering at any ColorFest activities, contact Stacy Kirby at 264-2360. Tickets are already being sold online, so don’t wait too long to get yours.

Business news Don’t forget to sign up for a Maximizing Your Membership class. The next one will be held Monday, Aug. 27, at 11:30 a.m.

at the Chamber conference room. Lunch is included at this free business session, which covers ways 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 should have received your e-vite this week. Look for it in your inbox or become a Facebook friend and get a reminder. We have a plethora of renewing members this week, including Cabins at Hartland Ranch, Sportsman’s Campground and Mountain Cabins, Main St. Cottage, the Made in Colorado Shoppe, Summit Ski and Sport (celebrating their 25th anniversary), The Artist Within, Rio Grande Savings and Loan Association, Cornerstone Accounting, Renner’s Mini Storage, Subway East, the Cassio Group and Bugle’em Up Outfitting.

We have plenty of computers available for our students to use, with Windows XP, Microsoft 2010 installed. If you would prefer to bring your own laptop, you will be able to connect to our wireless network. Another community education class we will offer this fall is the always popular First Aid/CPR class being scheduled once per month. This school year, we are alternating two evening classes one month, with a full Saturday class the following month. Sept. 17 and 19 will kick off our first round of National Safety Council certified classes, followed on Oct. 13 by a full Saturday class. Classes will be $70 for either venue.

Carl Macht and Pete Peterson are the instructors. A new course on our calendar is Top 10 IRA Mistakes. This is a class on how to avoid IRS traps.

Fire protection district to offer seminars in September By Manny Trujillo Special to The SUN

The Pagosa Springs Fire Protection District will host a series of seminars in September at the station at 191 North Pagosa Blvd. Completion of sessions can satisfy DFS CEU requirements. On Sept. 4, there will be a oneday seminar dealing with NFPA 13 Sprinkler System Installation Requirements. There are hundreds of types of sprinklers in use today. Determining where to locate them can be a complex task. They need to be spaced properly and installed in specific locations to ensure coverage of the protected area and located far

enough away from obstructions to ensure that the spray pattern can adequately develop and control or suppress a fire. The rules that govern this complex matrix of decisions are found in Chapter 8 of NFPA 13 on Installation Requirements. This fast-paced and interactive seminar will guide the participant through the series of decisions and requirements that lead to compliance with NFPA 13 and ensure the system will operate properly when needed. A one-day seminar on Sept. 5 will deal with Fire Service Mains and Their Appurtenances (Underground Piping). This full-day seminar describes the responsibility of the contractor,

owner and authority having jurisdiction for the proper installation of fire service mains and their appurtenances as addressed in NFPA 24. On Sept. 6, a one-day session will consider the topic of Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of Water Based Fire Protection Systems. This seminar describes the responsibility of the owner, contractor and authority having jurisdiction in maintaining a working water-based fire protection system. The seminar is based upon NFPA 25. This is a basic level class. Registration fees (per class): Member or AHJ, $95; nonmember, $150. Registration: 7:30 a.m. the day of each session. Class hours: 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

Tisha Casida, Independent candidate for U.S. House, Colorado District 3, has officially qualified to be on the ballot for the general election on Nov. 6. Casida has been campaigning in the district for over a year, meeting with constituents and small business owners. “We are so excited, and grateful for our volunteers and contributors who have made this possible,” said Casida, an advocate of pushing many functions of the federal government down to the state and local level, where there is, “more transparency and accountability” with the representatives. Casida was recently included as

a candidate in the Club 20 Debate to be hosted at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, where she will be talking about issues affecting voters along with Scott Tipton (R) and Sal Pace (D). This debate will take place on Sept. 8. There are over 90,000 registered Independent (Unaffiliated) voters in Colorado’s third congressional district. “My candidacy is about representing the voice of many people who are either not affiliated with a political party or who are frustrated with their political party,” said Casida, “and our platform is aimed at creating solutions for many people who desperately need freedom, economic prosperity, and peace in their lives.”

Cards of Thanks Benetti I would join my thanks to the many who have experienced the care of our Pagosa emergency teams. Last week, I, unfortunately, had to make a quick trip to Durango for medical repair. The EMT team, Thad and Carrie, were here in a twinkle of an eye and exercised maximum pro-

fessional competency. Thank you. Then, the TriState Care Flight team took over. Thank you Sherry, Brock and Dave. Can’t say that I was able to appreciate fully the Eurocopter B3 ride to Durango, but it did the job. We are so fortunate to have the degree of competency represented in these folks. Thank you again, all. Pauline Benetti

Fall Preview Tips for a healthy life, at any age Show & Sale SENIOR NEWS

By Musetta Wollenweber SUN Columnist

Here are Dr. Monique Martin’s tips for healthy living. Are you looking for ways to optimize your health? Health is not just the absence of disease, but also the presence of vigor, balance and optimal well-being. It is the connection of body, mind and spirit. Nutrition and diet. We all have some idea of what we would like to weigh. There are many books dispensing conflicting advice. Eating healthy shouldn’t be that confusing. Here are some guidelines: Don’t skip meals. Eat three meals and two to three snacks daily — five to six meals a day. When you feel like eating, ask yourself “Am I hungry?,” or is there another reason you are craving food — such as comfort? Eat organic as much as possible. Limit all processed foods. Avoid artificial sweeteners and colorings. Limit sweets and processed sugars. Drink 64 ounces of purified water daily. Limit beverages with caffeine, stimulants, sugars and dyes. Have one to three bowel movements daily. Do not diet. Shop the perimeter of the grocery store. Limit the middle. Eat a quarter of your calories as healthy fats — such as olive oil, essential fatty acids from cold-water fish, flax and walnut. Dairy, meats, eggs and nuts in moderation are OK. Avoid margarine, partially hydrogenated fats, kernel oils and trans fats. Eat a quarter of your calories as protein. This includes animal protein like fish, fowl, meat and eggs and vegetarian protein like legumes, tofu, seeds, nuts and dairy. Eat a quarter of your calories as non-starchy vegetables. Try to get two to three colors of veggies on your largest meal of the day. Eat a quarter of your calories as all other carbohydrates. This includes all grains, fruits, starchy vegetables and sweets. Drink alcohol in moderation, no more than two drinks in a day and less than four times per week. Drink alcohol with meals, not on an empty stomach. Take milk thistle if you drink regularly. Consider daily supplementation with multivitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Exercise. There are numerous varied guidelines. Exercise is the No. 1 treatment for mild to moderate depression, not Prozac. It keeps your body fit and helps maintain your weight. Exercise 30 minutes daily six to seven times a week. Alternate with aerobic and weight training activities. Do something you really enjoy. Judo, dancing, cycling, swimming and skiing are all great. If you are not participating in a sport and getting to the gym is difficult, then consider getting a treadmill or elliptical rider if you can’t go out for a walk. Research has shown that the treadmill is the most frequently used exercise equipment. Exercise first thing in the morning. Research shows that those who exercise in the morning are 70 percent more likely to continue versus only 20 percent of those who exercise at other times. Play and relationships. Do you play? Children spend a large part of their day playing and laughing. Unfortunately this is starting to decrease in children and we are seeing an increase in illness. Engage in friendships and hobbies to develop creativity and play. Include plenty of humor and affection in your life. Maintain social ties with those that mean the most to you. Work on your emotional issues! Spend time with your family. Especially with your children. Soon they’ll be grown. Nobody ever complained of not spending enough time at the office on his or her deathbed. Pay attention to the energy of those around you. Avoid toxic people and energy vampires. Don’t try to fix other people’s problems. Keep your marriage in great shape. It requires work. If you are unhappy, get counseling. Strive for win/win outcomes. Happily married people have longer and healthier life spans.

Enjoy sex. Be responsive to your mutual needs. Maintain excellent hygiene. If you are alone, get involved. Consider sharing your life with a pet. People with pets experience less loneliness and less illness. Consider volunteering. Work. Do what you enjoy. Assess the purpose of your life and pursue it. Find a job you love. Speak up. Don’t allow others take advantage of you. Take a confidence-building class. Assume responsibilities you can comfortably handle. Don’t get in over your head. Do not overwork — moderate your hours. Safety. If you have weapons, take a safety course. Keep your weapons and household chemicals locked up at all times. If you have a problem with anger and violence or other unacceptable behavior, get counseling now and get rid of your weapons. If you are a victim of unacceptable behavior, get counseling now. Don’t hit anyone. Take a parenting class if you have children. Self-care. Get plenty of sleep. Invest in a good mattress, pillow and blanket. Protect your body from electromagnetic fields, especially cell phones and computers. Avoid drugs and tobacco. Practice safe sex. Wear your seatbelt. Avoid dangerous situations. Wear sunscreen in the hot sun. Limit exposure to negative news. Develop an optimistic outlook. Fill your house with plants. Get a HEPA air purifier. Find a great doctor and dentist who will work with you. Get regular physicals and screening exams. Address any imbalances or illnesses in your body. Treat yourself to bodywork and other pampering relaxations. Have all silver-mercury dental amalgams eventually replaced with less toxic composites or gold. Plan and prepare for the future. Select a medical power of attorney for emergencies. Address any addictions. Spirituality. Get in touch with your spirit and higher power. Meditate regularly. Live your life mindfully. Convene with nature. Garden. Recycle. Protect the Earth. Look at what is important. Forget about keeping up with the Joneses. Appreciate the simple things in life. Take time to smell the roses, watch the sunset and play with children. Be involved in your community. Be charitable. Be kind. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Resolve past issues. Release judgment and anger. Forgive yourself and others. Give yourself permission to be.

Art show

We have been enjoying the photo display of 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, please contact me at 264-2167.

Presentations, anyone?

Seriously gang, do you have something fun to offer in a presentation? I haven’t heard a peep from anyone, and I know you are out there. John Graves and Jillian Flathers have shared their fun with us, now it’s your turn to share. Maybe you were a spy for FBI, CIA, a Navy Seal or were involved in an exciting mountain expedition. Perhaps you were part of a famous rescue, sang for the president, worked in the White House, cooked for Carey Grant, starred in a movie, specialized in furniture making, invented something or have great vacation slides from a trip to another country. If you would like to share your adventures with others, I’d love to hear from you. Please call me at 264-2167.

Dental assistance

The San Juan Basin Area Agency on Aging (SJBAAA) has grant funds from the Administration on Aging

for up to $300 per person. To ensure the continuation of grant funding, you will get a letter from the SJBAAA suggesting a minimum contribution of 10 percent ($30). Please observe the following program guidelines: 1. Title III Older Americans Act grant funds will assist seniors, age 60-plus in the following areas only : • Fluoride varnishing. • Fillings for cavities. • Tooth extractions. • Cleaning and overall preventive care for maximum oral health.

More assistance

A San Juan Basin Area Agency on Aging, Title III B & E Services Grant is being administered for 2012 by the Visiting Angels Home Care Agency in Pagosa Springs. To apply, you must be over 60 years old and not on Medicaid. Special consideration is being given to veterans who are waiting for their Aid and Assistance Benefit to come through. This grant will provide some funds, but is limited to $500 with a small copay, to assist the elderly with homemaking — to include fixing meals, planning menus, doing light housekeeping, laundry or changing beds. Also, personal care needs are covered — dressing and bathing assistance, general personal care and supervision to prevent falls, medications reminders and companionship — as are other chores around the house like yard work, light home maintenance or installing grab bars or wheelchair ramps. Contact Chris Smith at Visiting Angels, 264-5991, to apply.

Like to help out?

So far, I’ve had one very welcome response to my plea for help. If you can help out, I’d love to hear from you. In addition to the help needed in the kitchen, I am looking for a writer to assist with the weekly column. One idea for a writer would be to interview our Senior of the Week. Perhaps you or others have ideas, I sure would love to hear from you. We are currently accepting applications to assist in our kitchen and dining room. Like to help in the kitchen? Is chopping, slicing, dicing, prepping and stirring your middle name? If so, then we need you, and several of you at that. We’d love to have you aboard. Like to greet people and lend a hand? If so, we have the perfect opportunity for you. We are looking for a few people who would like to greet our folks, introduce new clients to our services, show them the ropes of the dining room and offer assistance to those needing help filling out our new client form. Call me at 264-2167 for an application.

Durango rabies encounter puts focus on prevention, treatment By Jane Looney Special to The SUN

A La Plata County resident is undergoing rabies vaccinations due to a bat bite experienced during the early afternoon of Aug. 5 at the Cundis Park (BMX track) by the Animas River. Individuals who were at that park on that day and may have had direct contact with a bat are asked to call San Juan Basin Health at 335-2028. While the bat was not available for testing, the bat’s behavior for that time of day is very unusual and regional epidemiologists deemed it highly likely that the bat was rabid. Rabies has a typical incubation period of one to three months. If you have been exposed, rabies vaccinations would be recommended. Signs have been posted at the Durango park. Rabies is an infectious viral disease that affects the nervous system of humans and other mammals. It is fatal if untreated. People get rabies from the bite of a rabies-infected animal. Any wild mammal, such as raccoon, skunk, fox, coyote or bat can have rabies and transmit it to people

through a bite. Bats are by far the most common carriers of rabies in this area. So far this year, three bats have tested positive for rabies in our area.

Rabies reminders

If you think you have been exposed, it’s recommended that you safely capture the suspect bat or animal for testing. San Juan Basin Health usually gets results back within 24 hours and the test is $65 — far less costly than a series of rabies vaccinations. Heavy gloves are recommended. Further instructions are available at sjbhd.org/rabies. If the suspect animal is not available for testing, the epidemiologist will determine if the preventative rabies vaccination series is prudent. Over the last two years, the health department recommended to 11 individuals that they get the preventative rabies vaccine. Individuals are urged to keep pets and livestock current for rabies vaccination to protect them and your family. Contact your veterinarian for more information. To learn more about rabies and precautions and what to teach your children, visit www.cdc.gov/rabies.

No boost in town sewer rate By Ed Fincher Staff Writer

At a Pagosa Springs Sanitation General Improvement District (GID) meeting that took place after last week’s town council meeting, the main topic of concern was finances. “We kind of got a scare last month,” Town Manager David Mitchem said, “regarding potential insistence by the water authority that we increase the rates.” The current monthly sewer user charge in Pagosa Springs is $37.50, but the Colorado Water Resources and Power Development Authority, as a condition of considering a loan request by the town, had asked that an additional $6.50 be added onto the monthly charge to pay for “debt service,” which would have raised the sewer bill for everyone to $44 per month. The GID hasn’t raised the sewer rates since August 2008, when it implemented a 67-percent increase from $22.50 per month to the current rate of $37.50. By comparison, in 2010, the statewide average for municipal sewer charges was $20.79 per customer. “Through some good efforts by town auditor Mike Branch in providing financial information,” Mitchem explained, “and good efforts on the part of Town Clerk April Hessman and Sanitation Supervisor Phil Starks, we prevailed on water authority staff that a rate increase is not necessary.” After the meeting, Mitchem clarified, “They had to do a lot of number crunching. When this credit assessment first came forward … we scrambled and said, ‘We don’t want the staff recommendation to say we have to do a fee increase.’” So Branch, Hessman and Starks, “got together, worked the numbers, and sent a modified proposal in to them, showing them that their assessment of our numbers was incorrect.” The GID is in the process of applying for a $2 million loan from the authority’s Water Pollution Control

Revolving Fund (WPCRF) to help pay for a project that will construct force mains and lift stations to send sewage to the Vista Wastewater Treatment Plant operated by the Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District (PAWSD). This will allow GID’s existing wastewater treatment facility to be decommissioned. The project is needed because the existing facility is operating at near-capacity and is no longer capable of treating wastewater to acceptable levels. The facility has exceeded biological oxygen demand limits and is not capable of meeting the monthly ammonia standards. Plus, this project will eliminate the GID’s discharge point into the San Juan River, which is just upstream from PAWSD’s water intake structure. The total cost of this project is estimated to be $5,250,000, with $2,000,000 coming from the WPCRF loan, $2,000,000 from PAWSD and $1,250,000 from a grant by the Energy and Mineral Impact Assistance Fund (EIAF). Referring to the WPCRF credit report, a document presented to the GID board by Mitchem and described as an assessment of GID’s credit worthiness, Mitchem noted, “we have put the water authority on notice, at the top of page five, that the district does not intend to increase rates.” He then went on to point out at the bottom of page five, “under ‘staff recommendations,’ you’ll see that I highlighted ‘a rate increase does not appear necessary at this time,’ so it’s the water authority staff’s assessment that a rate increase is not necessary, and their staff is recommending funding of this pipeline loan. So, this is what will go before their credit committee next week and before the whole water authority board by the end of the month.” Mitchem cautioned, however, “This is simply the staff recommendation to the credit committee. They don’t think the committee will change their recommendation, nor do they think the board

will change the recommendation upon final passage, but we’re not done until we’re done. So, until the board makes their decision at the end of the month, we’re still subject to change.” But he finished by saying that the credit report is “good news.” According to the report, “In 2007 and 2008 the GID obtained loan and grant funding for construction of a new wastewater treatment plant.” This funding included a loan and a grant from EIAF, as well as a loan from WPCRF. The report continues: “In 2009 the GID repaid the unused EIAF loan in full and in 2012 cancelled the undrawn WPCRF loan funds in full after determining it was still exploring project options. After reviewing many project and funding options and negotiating with PAWSD, the GID has instead decided to proceed with the proposed project.” The GID and PAWSD completed an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) in January 2012 that spelled out the terms of this project. The GID will build the first lift station at the site of their existing treatment facility and the pipeline from there to the second lift station. PAWSD will build the second lift station and the pipeline from there to its Vista plant. One year after PAWSD completes its part of the construction, the GID will begin to repay PAWSD for its portion of the construction cost at a rate of 0.75 percent over 20 years. The IGA goes on to establish a seven-member committee with one neutral representative and three representatives from each district that will vote on decisions related to the project. Each district will also retain ownership of their own sewer collection systems, while PAWSD will operate and maintain the new lift stations and sewer lines, with GID paying PAWSD for its portion of the monthly sewer treatment costs at a rate of $1.10 for every thousand gallons that gets pumped up to the Vista plant. This rate will be subject

to annual review and adjustment, based on changes in operating costs. While the GID has agreed to allow PAWSD to pay for part of the upfront construction cost and promised to pay that cost back later, it plans on paying for its part of the construction cost with the EIAF grant, which it secured in 2008 and still retains, and the WPCRF loan it is applying for from the state water authority. According to the report that Mitchem presented, since the estimated population served by the GID is less than 5,000, the district qualifies for a loan with a 1-percent interest rate under the WPCRF Disadvantaged Community Program. A $2,000,000 direct loan with a 2-year term and a 1-percent interest rate where the GID makes two payments per year will cost $110,582 in debt service annually. It was to cover this additional interest cost that the water authority wanted to raise the sewer rates for the citizens of Pagosa Springs. “In 1988 Colorado Senate Bill 50 set up the Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund (WPCRF) within the Colorado Water Resources and Power Development Authority (the Authority) and designated the Authority as the administrator,” according to the water authority’s website. “Under the WPCRF, lowinterest loans are made to local governments for eligible water pollution control projects.” Projects that are eligible to receive loans under this program include treatment plants, interceptors, pump stations, bio-solids facilities, water meters, sewer lines, reuse facilities and non-point source control projects (which includes storm-water projects that provide a water quality benefit). Loans greater than $2,000,000 are considered leveraged loans and are funded from bond proceeds, which may require additional time. Loans under $2,000,000 are direct loans and may be executed within three months from initial application. ed.fincher@pagosasun.com

Volunteers continue search for missing man SUN Staff

A volunteer search and rescue mission continues in an effort to find a Pagosa resident (recently moved from Bayfield) reported missing Friday, Aug. 3. A missing persons report was filed Saturday, Aug. 4, for David Bruce Ritchie, last seen Aug. 3 in the Beaver Meadows area near the Archuleta and La Plata county line, where he exited a vehicle and entered the woods. Ritchie is 59 years old, 5-7, approximately 165 pounds, with grayish-white hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information is urged to call law enforcement. randi@pagosasun.com

‘Safety first’ in management of county funds By Randi Pierce Staff Writer

The game plan for the safekeeping of the county’s funds continues to be safety first, liquidity second and yield third, according to a semiannual report delivered by Archuleta County Treasurer Betty Diller on Aug. 7. According to Diller’s report, the county is handling its cash conservatively to allow for adequate cashflow for county needs. The treasurer’s office handles not only funds belonging to the county, but also segregated funds and funds collected for other taxing authorities (special districts, for example). The county disburses funds to those taxing authorities monthly and semimonthly, Diller explained. From there, the county must keep cash available for operating expenses and invest the balance in approved ways, said Diller. A chart shown during the presentation to the Board of County Commissioners showed around $15 million in cash on hand for the county, with several million in investments. The county’s cash on hand is held in a variety of banks, with

$10,084,948.20 at Wells Fargo, $1,042,402.90 at Bank of the San Juans (the Jail Commissary Fund), $30,026.07 in Citizen’s Bank, and $842,804.78 held by COLOTRUST. In addition, the county has several CDs and $4 million in bonds, with half receiving 1.24 percent interest and the other half earning 1.25 percent, Diller said. One bond has a call date of September 2012; the other is callable in March 2013. In addition to stating the numbers, Diller said it is becoming increasingly difficult for the county to keep money in local banks due to federal requirements that deem banks must collateralize 102 percent of the public money kept. That requirement is causing several banks to back out of accepting public money. Yield, Diller said, is the last item on the list of priorities, coming after safety and liquidity, adding that the county’s interest rates were nothing spectacular, but were the average market value for government investments. “There are no screamin’ deals in this kind of investment,” Diller said. randi@pagosasun.com

very well. It is not at all unusual or unauthentic for a flute to play from a violin score or vice versa. “One of the real blessings of being in this amazing town is the richness of musical resources available to us. I love inviting musicians to play for Sunday Night Unplugged because it is an opportunity to feature the abundant talent that is right here in Pagosa Springs,” said Sally Neel, director of music and arts at St. Patrick’s “I feel I have struck gold with Heidi Tanner and Jessica Peterson. These two truly gifted musicians enjoy playing music that too often lies dormant due to its intricate difficulty. Heidi and Jessica not only expertly rise to the challenge, but understand and appreciate the incredible beauty and complexities that can unfold anew in each performance. As a pianist and accompanist, creating music with these two ladies is not only a delight, but also a privilege. I anticipate this collaboration will continue for a long time.” Sunday Night Unplugged is a monthly offering at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church. It is a service for personal reflection, a time to enjoy beautiful music, and a time to offer prayers. The service lasts about an hour and is free and open to the public. St. Patrick’s is located at 225 S. Pagosa Blvd. For more information, call 7315801, or go to www.stpatrickspagosa.org.

If you have been yearning for the timeless beauty of baroque and classical music in the midst of the scenic wonder that is Pagosa Springs, you are in for a real treat. This Sunday, Aug. 19, at 5 p.m., St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church will host its monthly Sunday Night Unplugged service of music and meditation, featuring music played by flutist Jessica Peterson, violinist Heidi Tanner and pianist Sally Neel. The trio first performed together as an ensemble during the Holy Week and Easter services at St. Patrick’s last spring. In preparation, each musician researched to find trio music scored for flute, violin and piano. Some of the music was discovered in their own libraries and other music was found in public domain, available online. “Though we had not really talked in advance about the style or period of the music we were looking for, we each came up with music primarily from the baroque period,” said Sally Neel. “It is music that really speaks to each of us as musicians and has rich opportunities for endless artistic development.” The (as yet unnamed) trio had an opportunity to try their wings

outside of Pagosa Springs last April when they were invited to perform in Estes Park at the annual Episcopal clergy conference. “It was such fun to have them there,” said Fr. Doug Neel, rector of St. Patrick’s. “The clergy conference, an annual meeting comprised of every Episcopal priest in Colorado, is accustomed to enjoying performances from first class musicians from the Denver/ Boulder/Colorado Springs area. It is a common assumption of our brothers and sisters on the Eastern Slope and Front Range that, since we on the Western Slope are more isolated and less cosmopolitan, we have less access to high quality classical music. When the trio played, these clergy really took notice. One priest remarked to me rather incredulously, ‘… and you say these ladies are from Pagosa Springs?’ A priest from the Denver area asked Sally if they had a CD they could share. I must confess I was very proud.” The trio will be playing music by J.S. Bach, C.P.E. Bach, G.F. Handel and Louillet. Much of the music was originally scored for two flutes and piano or two violins and piano. Though the timbre of the instruments is quite different, the range of the flute and violin is similar and they complement each other

David Taylor, formerly the founder and artistic director of the David Taylor Dance Theatre, Denver’s original contemporary ballet company, is bringing his new company, the Zikr Dance Ensemble, to Pagosa Springs. Taylor served as the principal choreographer for the company that bore his name for 27 years and during that span the David Taylor Dance Theatre performed at the Pagosa Springs High School auditorium on numerous occasions. Taylor’s lifelong fascination with ritualistic and sacred dance led him to form his new company, the Zikr Dance Ensemble, in 2009. The Zikr Dance Ensemble offers a spectrum of works that are based on transcendent dance rituals from many different ancient world cultures throughout history along with original and contemporary dance/theatre realizations. Zikr’s company roster includes some of Colorado’s finest trained professional ballet dancers and the company has already presented successful Colorado performances to rave reviews in Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, Grand Junction, Carbondale and Parker, as well as in St. Paul, Minn., and Los Angeles, Calif. The Zikr Dance Ensemble will present a program entitled “Sa-

cred Spaces” at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 24 and 25, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door and may be purchased by calling 731-7469 or online at www.pagosacenter.org. Master classes from Taylor and dancer Jennifer Begley will be offered on Saturday, Aug. 25, at the Pagosa Center for the Arts. Each class will be roughly one-and-ahalf hours in length and $20 per class. The classes are open to intermediate to advanced students. Taylor will teach a classic ballet class. Begley will teach a Lyrical class which fuses modern dance, jazz and ballet. The first class begins at 1 p.m. and the second will start at 3. Call the Pagosa Center for the Arts to register. Registration is limited. Employing authentic, colorful and stunning costumes, props and original musical scores, the “Sacred Spaces” performance will feature excerpts from Taylor’s award winning ballets “Anasazi Dream,” “Rainforest”and “Bali Agung,” along with two Gurdjieff sacred movements, one of which was recently staged by internationally-known Gurdjieff movement teacher Amiyo Devienne. Zikr’s performances have been called, “deeply moving … bringing the ancient to the new millennium…” Critics have hailed Taylor’s, “... depth of spirit and artistic

Patty Aragon Green Chile Classic at this year’s Mountain Chile Cha Cha By Jacque Aragon Special to The SUN

The seventh annual Mountain Chile Cha Cha will take place Saturday, Aug. 25, in Town Park. The Cha Cha includes a morning trail race for all ages and abilities, a green chile cookoff and tasting, and a free concert in the park. The Mountain Chile Cha Cha is a no-admission, all-day fall celebration. There is a big tent, so this event happens rain or shine. There will be food vendors, green chile roasting and cold Mexican beer served in the cantina. The award-winning Latin band Nosotros from Las Cruces, N.M., will begin playing at 1:30 p.m. Much in the same way that easterners equate the smell of pressed apples with the coming of fall, residents of the Southwest know it’s autumn by the smell of roasting green chiles, usually the Hatch variety from New Mexico, but sometimes Big Jims, which are commonly grown around Grand Junction. The fifth annual Patty Aragon Green Chile Classic will offer up more than $600 in prize money and some sweet trophies and bragging rights. This event is slightly different than a typical chile cookoff because it features only green chile, a dish that is ubiquitous in our region, but not as well-known outside New Mexico and southern Colorado. Patty Aragon, who passed away 12 years ago, was locally famous for her green chile, often served on burgers and fries at Al’s Cafe, a restaurant she owned and ran with her husband, Ross. When

they closed their doors in 1992, it was the end of an era for many Pagosans. Several local restaurants have kept the green chile tradition alive and well, along with legions of home cooks who continually strive for the “perfect” green chile recipe. Some people prefer scorching hot chile, others like it mild; some cooks use chicken, others use pork or no meat at all. No matter how you make your green chile, you’ll have a chance to show your stuff at the Classic and possibly win some cash or a trophy and the undying admiration of local green chile aficionados. Entries will be accepted for the fifth annual Patty Aragon Green Chile Classic cookoff through Aug.

23. If you would like to compete, contact Jacque at 264-4237 to arrange a time to drop off your entry. First place in Green Chile with Meat, Meatless Green Chile and Overall People’s Choice will win $200 each. Additionally, trophies and medals will be awarded to the top three entrants in each category. If the judges and the people agree, one entrant could conceivably take home $600 in cash. If you think you make a great green chile, this is your chance to prove it and possibly take home some cash, too. It’s just $5 per entry and you can enter both categories if you wish. Entry forms are available to download online at pagosaspringsdining.com.

The chile tasting will get underway at 12:30 p.m. on Aug. 25. Tasters are encouraged to cast their vote for the People’s Choice award. The award ceneremony is set for 3:30.

Jeff Scroggins and Colorado, take the stage Tuesday at the Summer Concert Series By Paul Roberts

Special to The PREVIEW

Jeff Scroggins and Colorado, an electrifying Rocky Mountain bluegrass band, takes the stage at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 21, 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. Music aficionados of all stripes will appreciate the first-rate artistry of Jeff Scroggins and Colorado, a band of virtuosic bluegrass superpickers. With an emotional intensity that immediately grabs the listener, Jeff Scroggins and Colorado take what used to be thought of as old-time mountain hillbilly music, mix in other musical genres with it — and perform it on the fine arts concert stage. “We chose our name to show our mutual affection for the state that we have all come to call home, and to represent the more progressive approach to our ‘bluegrassing’ that places like Lyons, Nederland and Pagosa Springs have helped to develop over the last 30 years,” says fiddler Annie Savage. “When we travel through the Midwest and places that tend to stick to more nostalgia-based bluegrass, they know we are probably going to defy the genre a bit. We all grew up inside the tradition of bluegrass. We just love it so much that we feel the need to keep it fresh and alive for many more generations to enjoy and develop.” Banjoist Jeff Scroggins has been a towering figure in the music

business for decades. Scroggins has performed and recorded with many of the top names in bluegrass and has won numerous awards including the prestigious National Bluegrass Banjo Championship and dozens of state, regional and local banjo contests. An internationally known performer and banjo teacher his fiery style has earned him many fans worldwide. He has toured throughout the U.S., Canada, Japan and Russia. Scroggins grew up in rural Oklahoma listening to his grandfather, J.M. Cary, perform old-time country music and hearing the fiddling of his great uncle, Oklahoma fiddle legend Ace Sewell. At the age of 12, Scroggins’ grandfather gave him his first guitar and taught him how to play. Mandolinist Tristan Scroggins is the youngest member of the band. “Tristan is an exciting one to watch in our project,” says fiddler Savage. “Not only does he represent the authentic process of passing of the music down from one generation to the next through his work with Jeff, he is a prodigy player along the lines of Mark O’Connor and other bluegrass greats who started young and grew up inside the tradition. At 17, Tristan already fully understands what defines traditional bluegrass and is stretching the boundaries of bluegrass without taking them to the breaking point and listeners will love his original compositions that tend to give a nod to Bill Monroe while also incorporating elements of jazz, funk and Afrograss into the band.”

Annie Savage began her career in the music business when she was 8 years old. “I started playing the fiddle when I was two,” she said. “I learned to play music kind of like I learned how to talk, through listening to a lot of other people around me do it. The fiddle has always been my language.” Her vivaciousness and versatility has developed through 30 years of performing classical violin, concert harp and bluegrass fiddle. While pursuing studies at Oberlin Conservatory, Berklee College of Music and the Boston Conservatory, Savage found her passion for teaching other people to enjoy the art of music.

Lafayette, Colo. In bluegrass, as in jazz, one or more instruments each take turns playing the melody and improvising around it, while the others perform accompaniment — especially in tunes called breakdowns. A distinguishing characteristic of bluegrass is vocal harmony featuring two, three or four parts. Bluegrass, as a distinct musical form, developed from elements of old-time music and traditional music of the Appalachian region of the United States. Jeff Scroggins and Colorado is a remarkable exponent of progressive bluegrass, merging the traditional with the adventurous. Come have an unforgettably magical musical adventure. The Jeff Scroggins and Colorado concert is part of the Summer Concert Series produced by the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts in collaboration with Elation Center for the Arts. Sponsors are Mountain Landing Guest Quarters, Photographer Jeff Laydon and The Pagosa Springs SUN. For further information, call 731-7469.

Cherise Lukow brings opera to the Center stage By Paul Roberts

Special to The PREVIEW

Opera prima donna Cherise Lukow will appear at the Pagosa Center for the Arts at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 28, as part of the Summer Concert Series. “We are so thrilled to have Cherise Lukow back at the Center for our Summer Concert Series,” said PSCA director Laura Moore. “Cherise is a truly gifted singer and an opera darling with tremendous stage presence. Cherise is just finishing her summer with the Santa Fe Opera and we were lucky to grab her for this fabulous show before she flies back to Paris. This is the absolute cannot-miss-concert of

the summer.” Pagosa classical flautist Jessica Peterson says, “I heard Cherise Lukow less than a year ago and feel lucky to have a chance to hear her live again so soon. She sings with exceptional nuance and beauty, and she is lively, funny and charming. Her natural musicality and masterful technique allow her to explore all the subtleties of the music. This is the vocal concert to bring your non-opera-loving friends to. They will fall in love with Cherise’s awe-inspiring singing.” Tickets are $26 in advance and $30 at the door. Call the Pagosa Center for the Arts at 731-SHOW or order online at www.pagosacenter.org.

UU Fellowship to hold summer picnic By John Graves

Special to The PREVIEW

On Sunday, Aug. 19, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will host its annual summer picnic. It will be held in Town Park in downtown Pagosa Springs. From U.S. 160, turn south at the light onto Hot Springs Boulevard. Then make a quick left onto Hermosa Street. The park is on the right, next to the river. Picnic tables have been reserved in the center of the park at the base of the big tree. Look for the bright

pink tablecloths. There will be no service at the Fellowship Hall in Greenbriar Plaza. Instead, starting about 10:30 a.m., there will be coffee, free pastries and conversation ... and then, a potluck picnic in the park. Please bring a dish to share. There is playground equipment at one end of Town Park, so families with children will find entertainment. Bring Frisbees, games, friends, musical instruments or other things you think are fun at picnics. All are welcome.

Museum features ‘Montage: A Quilt Show’ By Shari Pierce

Special to The PREVIEW

American Sampler

Ann Oldham purchased the kit for this quilt top in 1979 from Herrschners — a mail-order needlework and craft company. The kit, numbered 01171 and named “American Sampler,” is a product of National Paragon Corp., New York, NY. The package contained, “Quilt top panels of 100-percent cotton percale, stamped for embroidery and quilting, and complete easy-to-follow instructions with diagram.” After Ann had the top partially completed, it was stored away. Work resumed on it in 2011 and in that year the embroidery work was completed. The hand quilting and binding were completed by Ann’s daughter, Shari Pierce, in April 2012. Three sisters Palmer made this quilt in the late 1800s. They were young women living in New York City. It has been inherited by Marty Nossaman Lincoln, who is a Pagosa Springs resident, and generously loaned this quilt for this special exhibit.

Historic preservation of the Harman Homestead By Virginia Bartlett

Special to The PREVIEW

A restoration and preservation project is going on at one of Pagosa Springs best known attractions, The Fred Harman Red Ryder Museum, where the first homestead of the artist Fred Harman, built in 1878, is being restored to its original configuration. Thanks to the volunteer labor of Dusty Pierce, Byron Tashby and Dow Oellien, the rooms added in the late 1940s around two sides have been demolished and the small log cabin is visible once again. Also uncovered was a wall covered with old newspapers used as insulation — including The Pagosa Herald and The Denver Post — dating from 1879. The newspapers have been removed and are stored at the museum. Usable wood from the cabin has been stacked and retained

for future use. Additional thanks go to the La Plata Electric Assoc. for its generous grant to help with the rebuilding of the roof. Pierce says competion of the restoration will cost an additional $10,000 as the existing roof must be removed and rebuilt to the original roof design, plus the broken windows must be repaired.

Sam Bush and Loudon Wainwright III By Crista Munro Special to The Sun

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 right here in Pagosa Springs. The festival will feature 22 live performances on two stages from some of the finest touring Americana, bluegrass, newgrass and folk musicians in the country. Featured on this year’s lineup are Railroad Earth, Jerry Douglas, The Wood Brothers, Darrell Scott, Sara Watkins, Sarah Siskind, Caravan of Thieves, Elephant Revival, the Milk Carton Kids, Rose’s Pawn Shop, The Well Pennies, Anne and Pete Sibley, You Me and Apollo, Mike + Ruthy and this week’s featured artists, Sam Bush and Loudon Wainwright III. Loudon Wainwright’s recording

career spans a total of 23 albums, including 2009’s Grammy-winning “High Wide and Handsome” (awarded Album of the Year by Entertainment Weekly editor and NPR contributor Ken Tucker) and his latest, Loudon’s CD, “Older Than My Old Man Now,” released in April 2012. The child of a LIFE Magazine columnist and a housewife/yoga teacher, Wainwright studied acting at Carnegie-Mellon University but dropped out to partake in the Summer of Love in San Francisco. He wrote his first song in 1968, “Edgar,” about a Watch Hill, Rhode Island, lobsterman and was soon signed to Atlantic Records. Several years later, Clive Davis lured him to Columbia Records, where 1972’s Album III yielded the top 20 hit “Dead Skunk.” Wainwright has collaborated with songwriter /producer Joe Henry on the music for Judd Apatow’s hit n See Festival on next page

Loudon Wainwright’s songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, Earl Scruggs, Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others. Loudon’s acting career includes an early recurring role as Capt. Calvin Spalding, the singing surgeon, in TV’s M.A.S.H. and a stint in “Pump Boys and Dinettes” on Broadway, and more recent work in films directed by Hal Ashby, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Guest, and Judd Apatow.

He’s the co-founder of the genre-bending New Grass Revival and an in-demand musician who has played with everyone from Emmylou Harris and Bela Fleck to Charlie Haden, Lyle Lovett and Garth Brooks. And though Bush is best known for jaw-dropping skills on the mandolin, he is also a three-time national junior fiddle champion and Grammy award winning vocalist. “In the acoustic world, I’ve been pretty lucky to play with almost every one of my heroes. I’ve gotten to play with Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, I’ve been to the mountain,” says Bush with a smile. But his greatest contribution may be his impact on the future. “Chris Thile, Wayne Benson, Shawn Lane, Matt Flinner, Ronnie McCoury, Mike Marshal — they play in ways that I can’t play,” he says of today’s younger generation of mandolin players. “I’m hoping to be around for the next generation that comes along after that group.

The Pagosa Springs Community Choir begins rehearsals Sept. 4 for the Christmas Concert. Registration starts at 6:30 p.m. outside the high school band room.

Community Choir to begin rehearsals for Christmas concert By Betty Schwicker

Special to The PREVIEW

The Pagosa Springs Community Choir will begin rehearsals Sept 4 for the annual Christmas concert. We are again planning a concert filled with joyous music for the season. Dan Burch is directing again this year and has already picked the music, to include such favorites as “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” “Great is Our Joy” and “It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas.” The Jazz Ensemble is also performing and Venita Burch is again our accompanist. We look forward to all of our previous singers returning, but we also hope to have new members join us. If you enjoy singing and would like

to join this talented group, we look forward to meeting you. Rehearsals are held in the high school band room. The first rehearsal on Tuesday, Sept 4, begins at 6:30 p.m. for registration, and rehearsal is held from 7 to 9. Each member is requested to pay $20 for the cost of music and binders. Subsequent rehearsals are held each Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m. Ladies who are joining the choir for the first time, should plan to be at the first rehearsal to be fitted for a blouse that must be ordered. Concert dates are Nov. 30, Dec. 1 and 2. If you have questions or would like additional information, call Betty Schwicker at 731-3363 or Sue Diffee at 731-1305.

going to be something. The music keeps evolving.” “Circles Around Me,” Bush’s seventh solo album and sixth with Sugar Hill, is an aurally inspiring mix of bluegrass favorites and complementary new songs. Produced by Bush, the 14-song set includes appearances by Del McCoury, Edgar Meyer, Jerry Douglas and New Grass Revival co-founder Courtney Johnson (posthumously). The album also employs the phenomenal talent of Bush’s band: Scott Vestal, Stephen Mougin, Byron House and Chris Brown. “It’s crazy to think about,” Bush says of his influence on today’s crop of mandolin players. “I’m proud to be part of a natural progression in music. And I hope to still be playing 30 years from now.” That said, it’s not surprising that Bush still has goals. “I want to grow as a songwriter, as a song collaborator,” he says. “There are still a lot of things I haven’t discovered about playing mandolin. I want to be able to be secure in the styles that I know how

to play well, but I also want to explore other styles that I haven’t learned yet. I want to improve as a singer,” he adds. “I have to work harder on singing than I do on playing. “As long as I’m alive I hope I have the ability to play,” says Bush, a twotime cancer treatment survivor. “When the ability to play is taken away, it’s humbling. It teaches you a lesson: don’t take it for granted.” Sam Bush will be making his third headline appearance at the Four Corners Folk Festival, closing the show on Sunday evening with a 7 p.m. set.

SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts is pleased to announce an open call for entries for “The ART of it ALL,” an all media national juried exhibition, Oct. 20-Nov. 25. Submission deadline is Sept. 15, 2012.

Auditions set for ‘Man of La Mancha’ By Sally Neel

Special to The PREVIEW

Curtains Up Pagosa! has announced its Dec. 12-15 production of “Man of La Mancha” a classic musical play written by Dale Wasserman based on the 17th century masterpiece by Miguel de Cervantes, “Don Quixote.” The music, composed by Mitch Leigh with lyrics written by Joe Darion, includes the beautiful signature song, “The Impossible Dream.” The play features primarily an adult (or older youth) male cast, though there are several significant adult female roles as well. Auditions will be open to the public and are scheduled for Friday,

Sept. 21, from 2-7 p.m., at Pagosa Springs High School. Successful auditions require good acting and vocal skills. Dale Wasserman originally wrote the nonmusical teleplay, “I, Don Quixote,” for CBS’s DuPont Show of the Month and it was broadcast live on Nov. 9, 1959, with an estimated audience of over 20 million viewers. The story is presented as a play within a play, performed by Cervantes to his fellow inmates as he awaits trial during the Spanish Inquisition. Following the highly successful television studio production, the play “I, Don Quixote” made an unsuccessful off-Broadway stage run. Director Albert Marre saw the

Christopher Willard, directed by Christopher Willard. May-June 2013. A powerful new play written by award-winning writers, Jamie Bruss and Christopher Willard. Seven lives intersect in this compelling drama inspired by the true stories of rescuers and hidden children in Nazi-occupied Holland. The voices of the oppressed, the oppressors, and the quiet heroes come together to share their bold stories of defiance in this eloquent play celebrating hope and humanity —and the hidden courage inside us all.

2013 Summer Season

Monty Python’s “Spamalot,” book and lyrics by Eric Idle, music by John DuPrez, Eric Idle and Neil Innes. June-August 2013. 2005 winner of three Tony Awards, including Best Musical. “Spamalot” sets musical theatre back a thousand years! Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is written with a book by the third tallest Python, Eric Idle, and an almost but not entirely new score by Eric Idle (no relation) and John du Prez. It retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a number of gratuitously scantily clad showgirls, not to mention the cows, killer rabbits and French people. June-August 2013. “The Full Monty,” book by Terrence McNally, music and lyrics by David Yazbek. Based on the motion picture released by Fox Searchlight Pictures, written by Simon Beaufoy, produced by Uberto Pasolin and directed by Peter Cattaneo. Winner of 2001 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Music and nine Tony nominations. Based on the hit British indie film, “The Full Monty” comes to life onstage! Seeing how much their wives

enjoy watching male strippers during their “Girls’ Night Out,” unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo, New York come up with a bold way to make some quick cash. In the process they find renewed self-esteem, the importance of friendship and the ability to have fun. “’The Full Monty’ is that rare crowd-pleaser that you don’t have to apologize for liking. Memorygrabbing melodies, outlandish lyrics, delightful performers. Even those who go expecting to sneer are likely to be surprised by the smiles that keep sneaking onto their faces” — Ben Brantley, The New York Times. August 2013. “Xanadu,” book by Douglas Carter Beane and Jeff Lyne. Four weeks in August 2013. Winner of 2008 Outer Drama Critic’s Circle for Best Musical and four Tony nominations. In the heart of Mt. Olympus, the young and beautiful muse known as Kira yearns for something more. When watching over a struggling young artist, Sonny, she descends from the heavens to find herself in the last place she possibly imagined: Venice Beach, CA- 1980! Kira must aid Sonny in the creation of the world’s greatest artistic endeavor since the Parthenon — the first roller disco. Kira’s covetous sisters interfere when she falls hopelessly in love with Sonny, even though it is forbidden for immortals. In this hilarious hit from Douglas Carter Beane, coupled with fantastic orginal super-hit music from Jeff Lyne (Electric Light Orchestra), you’re sure to catch roller-fever and fall in love with “Xanadu.” So get your boogie-shorts, roller skates and ’80s attire ready to roll right into this summer’s smash hit.

potential of the play and suggested to Wasserman that it be converted into a musical. The resulting musical play titled “Man of La Mancha” opened at Goodspeed Opera House in Connecticut in 1965 and, after 21 preview performances, was moved to the ANTA Theater in Greenwich Village. It enjoyed its Broadway debut at the Martin Beck Theatre 1968. The play has since been revived on Broadway four times and is considered a classic among musical theater repertoire. “We are very excited about producing this extraordinary musical play,” says director Dale Johnson. “There are a number of people in town who have been yearning for us to perform ‘Man of La Mancha’ and we feel the time is right. It requires some very strong acting and singing skills, and we feel that our town can support that. We look forward to bringing it to Pagosa Springs.”

Positive changes in the local music scene As the final grains of sand trickle down the glass to fill what will be (for me) the vast Sonoran Desert, my thoughts turn to what I’ll be missing, for the most part, as I transition in my role as a secondhome owner. Since the start of this year, it’s occurred to me that this place is on the verge of finding itself — finally. I’m (unfortunately, for me) leaving at a most inopportune moment, when so many local residents have stepped up and declared their faith in a bright future for our area. It hasn’t always been like that. Almost since my very first story for The SUN, my impression has largely been that our town is a place with very low self-esteem. Upon my first visit here, I was enthralled by the awesome natural beauty and the special small-town charm. I immediately knew that this is where I wanted to raise my children, where I wanted to establish roots with a proximity to nature. Even though my first winter here was a brutal experience (I recall so many locals saying, “I don’t have anywhere else to put the snow!”), it did nothing to change my mind about making this home for my children and me. My very first story for The SUN was covering a public forum sponsored by the town. It was March 2008 and the nation was just entering into The Great Recession, with the worst economic and unemployment situation since the 1930s. If there was any common theme that resulted from that forum, it was fear — fear of losing businesses, fear of losing jobs and livelihoods, fear that our community would dry up to leave a shell of abandoned buildings littered with broken promises. Fear that things would continue to get much, much worse. Things did get worse; unemployment rose and some businesses closed. Yet, as our town struggled to survive over the next few years, the low self-esteem issue troubled me more and more. More than that, I heard from many quarters a credo that was all-too troubling: “That’s not how we do things in Pagosa.” I understood the roots of the low self-esteem (prior to writing for The SUN I worked in the mental health field) that seemed to permeate the area, it made sense. One of the poorest counties in the state, it suffered a huge blow when the local timber industry went belly up, mills closed and jobs dried up. A lot of longtime residents were left with little else than the clothes on their backs as local unemployment topped 30 percent. As a result, the population plummeted. It took well over a decade for the area to recover and, then, it was an infusion of outside money that fueled the boom. The area began selling off parts of itself to out-of-

Random Shuffle Jim McQuiggin state investors and speculators. While a few folks did very well and construction jobs were plenty, it was no secret that local fortunes were, by and large, dependent on interests who had never heard of Pagosa until the area became a hot commodity, a bright spot on a balance sheet. When those investors fled as the economy took a precipitous fall in late 2007, it was Pagosa residents who were left wondering how the area would rebound. The fear at the March 2008 public forum was not just palpable, it was stentorian. To me, however, “That’s not how we do things in Pagosa,” was not a reasonable response. There was no hope in it, no optimism, no vision. It was, to me, a reactionary expression of false pride, of onedimensional thinking and, worst of all, of resignation. “That’s not how we do things in Pagosa,” sounds dangerously close to the words of an abuser who, comfortable in their role of control and power, tells the victim, “This is the best there is, you’ll never do better than this. This is as good as it gets so shut your mouth, quit your crying and appreciate what I give you.” Fortunately, some of us aren’t convinced that it has ever been the best there is or this is as good as it gets, that shutting our mouths is something we refuse to do. I touched on this late last year (in the Dec. 22 edition of PREVIEW) and, since writing that column, I’ve been given a little more reason for optimism, especially as our summer has brought a little rain and an end to the wildfire that greeted me with a smoky haze in the mornings. With the exception of the festivals that bookended our summers, I found little to recommend as far as music in this area. For the most part, clubs in Pagosa featured local cover bands that did little to entertain or inspire. I get it — cover bands pack the house. When I was playing Punk Rock, I was doing overtime in a Classic Rock cover band to pay the bills and I’ll never regret the jouneyman’s experience and training I gained from playing for the Joe Dirt crowd. Yet, the band that got me the well-paid gig was not one I’d choose to go out and see. In the Punk/Indie scene, a band that played covers was invariably booed off the stage. No one wanted to hear music that was overplayed and well-known; they wanted to hear originals — and music on

the edge. For whatever reason, this year has suddenly seen an explosion in local clubs booking bands that, A) mostly play originals and, B) are exciting, fresh and new. For instance, I happened to catch the Little Sister Band a couple weekends back. When I told lead singer Andi Duncan that I felt their sound was “Alternative Blues,” she was extremely satisfied with the description. Indeed, the band does not play a traditional Blues/R&B mix (ala The Blues Brothers) but stretches those boundaries well beyond the conventions that usually pinion those genres. That stands to reason. When I talked to Duncan, she cited influences as diverse as opera, classic R&B, new blues and hip-hop. On top of that, her backing band of extremely talented musicians also bring an eclectic mix of tastes, styles and influences that adds to the band’s unique, full sound. In fact, drummer Clay Lowder told me that the band does very few gigs in their hometown of Albuquerque due to the fact that they refuse to fit any single genre or meet the expectations of stylistic purists. A month or so previous, Stephanie Hatfield and Hot Mess was in Pagosa, playing their own brand of anthemic rock that hearkens back to the stadium rock of the ’70s as well as the dark corners of CBGB, while throwing in a little honkytonk country and gut-bucket soul. I’ve seen SH&HM compared to the likes of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and any number of ’70s/’80s arena acts. I think the comparisons give the band far too little credit, adding that my own feeble attempt to pigeonhole them with more recent touchstones (like Black Mountain, Hotrats or any of the other ’70s rock revivalists) are tepid descriptions at best. Just down the road from the Little Sister Band (SH&HM hails from Santa Fe), I’ve finally learned to appreciate seeing a New Mexico license plate. The trend continued last weekend when Hawaii’s Black Square played in town, blending blend ska, punk, rocksteady, reggae, and hiphop influences into a unique brew of high-energy rock. I’ve never seen these guys before so I couldn’t say what kind of a show we’d see but, considering they were on the Van’s Warped Tour bill last year, I was almost 100 percent positive n See Shuffle on next page

Garage sale — Sweet Al is in his glory I opened the door to Al’s garage, shook my head, rolled my eyes, and said, “Take a gun and shoot me. How can one man collect so much stuff?” I pulled down the door and prayed, “God, deliver me.” I promised to help Al with a garage sale for the past two years. There’s no getting out of it. Last summer got away from us; meanwhile, stuff continued to stack up. My Al was beside himself. He couldn’t get in his garage and he knew I would probably poo-poo it like I did the year before. He was wearing me out talking about it. I told him, “It’s all in the timing.” The first of the summer we had those terrible bugs. I refused to be bitten and knew it would not make for a good garage sale. Then, the rains came every day. Of course, there was my book signing and presentation.

Artist’s Lane Betty Slade I was running out of excuses. No one was going to take me out of my misery. So, I bit the bullet and told Al, “Let’s just set a date and do it.” Next, I needed to take a look at all Al’s stuff and organize it in my head as to what he had and how we should set it up. Oh, me; I got weak and almost passed out when I tromped through his treasures and saw what he had been storing up. Our friends Gloria and Maynard from Arizona came to our rescue; they offered to help. We had a guest in one of our cabins who wanted to do something to return our kindness; she offered

to help, too. God’s answer came through our friends. It wasn’t quite the answer I had in mind. I just wanted it to all disappear. Five of us braved Al’s garage the week of the big event. I had to pray to keep from shooting Al. He got stuck on little things, like getting his generator set up in case he needed to test a motor, sorting through his tools, fiddling with his stuff and painting a sign. My friend asked, “Where did Al go?” I told her he got lost on memory lane. The day arrived. I jumped up early knowing we were going to have early shoppers. Eight o’clock wasn’t earlier enough. They started coming at 7:30, but we were ready. Gloria manned the money bag and Maynard was her backup. I needed to be friendly. I was still feeling prickly over all this

that it would be yet another band playing in Pagosa that supports my contention that the local music scene is starting to define itself as something worth getting out for. While 2012 has distinguished itself as the year a few people decided to take a chance and decide, “That’s not how we do things in Pagosa,” just wrong, I’d be remiss by failing to mention two local bands. While having played around town the last couple of years, they have also refused to embrace that tired and stale credo, choosing to go their own way, with the result being tremendous growth this year. Elder Grown has really taken off this year, dropping a lot of the covers that they messed around with a couple of years back and coming into their own with originals — and an original sound. When I first heard them, I wondered if their blend of rock, reggae, hip-hop and dub was a little too alien for Pagosa, but we’re fortunate that they continue to stick it out with the local music scene while expanding their fan base around the region. While Bixby is too often lumped in with Elder Grown, the comparison is far off the mark. Other than the fact that they’re both young and play original music that seems slightly out of place in a town that too often relies on bands playing their umpteenth Lynrd Skynrd cover, they are distinct. Bixby takes a much spacier, psychedelic approach to their music, one that often reminds me of Bon Iver, Beach House or Grizzly Bear. Finally, this year saw the addition of two new music festivals:

Outlaw Snowdown and Red, White and Brews offered new sounds to local music aficionados while the San Juan River Music festival expanded in ways that may have failed financially but certainly succeeded in showing us what is possible. While it appeared that all three festivals were in need of retooling to survive the one- to five-year ladder of growing pains, it’s my sincere hope that all three festivals can regroup and continue on, bringing more music — and more people — to Pagosa. Then, there are the two titans of local festivals, June’s Folk n’ Bluegrass Festival and the endof-summer Four Corners Folk Festival.. As I wrote in December, last year’s Labor Day lineup was exceptional. Jackie Greene blew me away with a style of blues rock that harkened back to the Boogie Bands of the early ’70s. Cousin Harley ripped the joint with his gritty and greasy brand of rockabilly while Caravan of Thieves had everyone in the meadow on their feet — I don’t think anyone was sitting during their blazing version of “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Headliners Los Lobos (certainly the highlight of the weekend) and Keb Mo’ showed the engineer cap and granny dress crowd that quality American can be amplified while Natalie McMaster proved that folk music, when not confined to rigid convention or protocol, could be an evolving, intelligent form. While that crowd has deemed “Americana” as something that is only played acoustically, with roots deep in Appalachia but not Chicago, Memphis or St.

Louis, John Lee Hooker, Aretha Franklin or Carl Perkins are no less “Americana” than a bunch of jug band wannabes. This year and the next will be seminal in seeing how things change, both politically and musically, in the fortunes of this area. It will be pivotal in determining if, “That’s not how we do things in Pagosa,” dies its well-deserved and overdue death. jim@pagosasun.com

Getting ready for back-to-school Here are some quick facts for parents as the kids get ready to go back to school. • For children just starting school, take a walk or bike ride around the school two or three weeks before school starts. This lets your child become familiar with the route and environment. • Encourage your children to be responsible for their things: to put their toys in special places and to hang, fold and put away their clothes. • Check immunization records and make sure everything is upto-date.

Preparation

Young children can be both excited and fearful about going to school for the first time. They have passed the preschool stage and are looking forward to going to the “big school” but are not quite sure what to expect. Parents can make the transition smoother for children with a little planning and preparation. Begin midsummer by talking about the excitement a new school experience will bring. Read books about going

!"#$%&'(% )'$*+('%#& ,'-./01%$& to school. It is not necessary to make back-to-school a daily topic, however. Start talking about clothing and school supplies. Help children of every age distinguish between needs and wants. Many communities have special programs that help provide schools necessities if funds are tight. Call your school, Social Services office or United Way to ask about these programs. Two or three weeks before school starts, take a walk or bike ride around the school so your child can become familiar with the route and environment. Introduce children to the principal and teachers. Many schools plan a back-toschool or welcome day or evening where children can explore their classroom, meet the new teacher,

locate the bathrooms and ask questions. If you know other parents whose children will be going to the same school, plan a get together so children can make new friends or become better acquainted. Invite a teacher. Insecure feelings the first days of school may be lessened if the children recognize familiar faces.

Learning responsibility

Encourage children to take responsibility for their belongings by putting their toys in special places and by hanging, folding and putting away clothes. Early practice will help children take better care of mittens, lunch boxes and other personal items when in school. Keeping track of belongings is a skill that takes several years for some children to master. This can be frustrating for parents — especially when a child loses a brand-new, expensive mitten. Help children print and recognize their names on personal items. Help them learn to check lostand-found boxes. n See Viewpoints on page 24

I just might be on to something Having this drastic a surgery has really turned my life upside down. It is a little like trying to learn to ride a bicycle backwards when the pedals keep falling off every 10 feet or so. Who says old dogs can’t learn new tricks? I beg your pardon, but we certainly can! And with panache, (whatever that is). One thing I am starting to learn is that whatever I think of an event is what it will be for me.

The Battle of the Netherlands Susan Neder If I think something is gross or overwhelming, then it will be for me. If, on the other hand, I look at something as no big deal, just something to get through, then it

is much more manageable. I also can’t worry about what others think about all this for now either, because I suspect that none of this bothers my friends and family as much as it bothers me. But, regardless, the only feelings I can manage right now are my own. That may have always been true, but I just did not know it until now. Hmmm ... maybe I am on to something.

stuff, but I put on a smile. Al was in his glory among all of his junk. He loved talking about his stuff. He sprung to his feet; he wanted to tell his stories to everyone. I survived it. We see most of our neighbors when we have a garage sale. Some of our friends came to support us. I met some really great people. There were several young builders who were looking for building supplies. These young people struggle to keep their businesses going in Pagosa. We gave away a lot of stuff for nothing and they were appreciative. In my mind, we were making more room in the garage. Final brushstroke: The garage

sale is over. Al is talking about the next one. Some things will never change. Maybe Al has missed his calling. I envision Sanford and Son. On a side note: David called. He’s out of jail. In jail he gave his food to the other inmates and made friends. His parole officer is supposedly a good-looking woman whom he is happy with. He worked off his community service by driving his truck for a thrift store, delivering their junk. Maybe he could come pick up Al’s leftovers from the garage sale. He made some new friends in low places. I asked him if he had learned his lesson about women. He said, “No, and I don’t want

Building self esteem

Assist children in building self-help skills. It makes children feel good if they can zip, button, and tie with little or no help from others. Kindergartners who can perform such tasks often volunteer to help classmates and make friends while being helpful. Teachers realize the importance of praise and often show their approval when children show initiative. Every opportunity for praise helps to build children’s self-esteem.

Health

Make sure immunization records are current. If you have questions, call the local health department or school nurse. Have complete and accurate emergency information on file with the school. Most schools provide a packet of required information that you should send with your child on or before the first day of school. A good night’s rest and a nutritious breakfast are essential for children to be healthy and productive.

Exercise patience

Elementary and middle school children experience a different anxiety as they move from one grade to another. There are different schedules, class changes, teachers, classmates, friends and, at times, schools. Each school year brings a period of adjustment. Adult patience and encouragement are needed and wanted during this time. Be a good listener. Set aside time each day to talk about school. Back-to-school time offers excellent opportunities for parents and youngsters to talk about academic goals, extracurricular interests and scheduled school events. Social interaction is a natural part of development. Discuss choosing friends wisely, the influence of peer pressure and trusting personal feelings about people. Talk with children about making good decisions and accepting responsibility for choices they make. Explore alternatives and consequences of possible choices.

Set rules

Establish basic rules regarding bedtime, chores, television, computer, video games, and telephone. It is a good idea to begin practicing these rules a week or two before school. Relate rules and limits to such factors as children’s ages and when they must be up in the morning. For all children, make lists of chores expected of them during the week. Coordinate them with homework and study time. Con-

!"#$%&' sistency is important for children at this age. Plan ahead to avoid conflicts surrounding back-to-school demands. When school begins, spend a few hours on weekends cleaning and organizing clothing and toys. During the week, lay out clothes, set the table, prepare lunch if necessary and put books and lunch money in a designated place. Be positive about school and education.

Kindergarten-eighth grade

Show children love and support. Shop wisely for back-to-school needs and wants. Reuse and recycle school supplies, clothes and toys. Find special programs which provide school clothing and supplies. Teach and practice taking care of personal items or belongings. Talk about expectations and establish rules. Help children get organized. Set time and place for homework. Discuss involvement in extracurricular activities that interest children. Get to know teachers and other school personnel. Support school and activities. Set bedtime and morning routines including time for a nutritious breakfast. Help children realize school is fun and important.

Ninth-12th grade and beyond

Young people are faced with new and different decisions: attending and finishing high school, preparing to go to college now or later, entering military service or the workplace. Students are faced with career plans while deciding on college. Those seeking employment ponder independent living, a car or a work wardrobe. Young people need to know they can count on family members for emotional support as they navigate the many decisions of this developmental stage.

Back-to-school is a teachable time for typical teens who spend several thousand dollars a year on cars, clothes, food and entertainment. This adds up to an estimated $150 to $200 billion annually in the United States, including online spending. On a national test of Consumer knowledge, teens correctly answered only 52 percent of the questions about banking, insurance, housing, cars and food. This lack of knowledge results in teens wasting billions of dollars every year on purchases that do not represent good value. Much of the waste comes from parents’ hard-earned money. When teens leave home — whether to enter the work force, travel, or attend college — poor consumer skills cause them to continue wasting money. As they spend more, they waste more. Learning about saving and spending is important to teens’ financial condition now and to their future success.

Pay yourself first

The most important Consumer skill for teenagers to learn — any time of year — is saving. “Pay yourself first” is a rule everyone can adopt. Setting aside funds for future expenditure provides opportunity, security and peace of mind. Cars, trips, education, business opportunities and emergencies can be covered from savings, avoiding the dangers of spending more than is coming in.

Budgeting

Budgeting is another important Consumer skill for teens to master. Back-to-school time is perfect for evaluating needs and wants while measuring them against income. Encourage teens to set aside savings first, because most of us do not have much left after back-to-school shopping. Budgeting helps avoid unexpected costs that can be especially difficult for college freshmen. High telephone bills, late-night pizza deliveries, Saturday dates and travel to and from home add up at warp speed. Remember to put them into the budget. n See Viewpoints on next page

Never too small, so give it your best shot By Penny Henderson Special to The SUN

Several years ago, God used my dog to teach me a muchneeded lesson. My husband John’s ankle was broken, so I had to take care of the horses. They never wanted to come in from the front pasture. It was June and the grass was lush. They still needed their measure of grain, though, along with a quick check of their hooves with the

A Arts Matter ofLine Faith mud brushed off. Missy, the matriarch, was the troublemaker. The others might start to come when I called and clapped my hands, but Missy would head them off, herding

them back to where they started. My arthritis made going to get them a literal pain, and besides, I wasn’t as skilled or as quick as John. Missy could elude me for 10 or 15 minutes as I stalked her back and forth across the big field. “I need a good dog,” I thought that first day, picturing a Sheltie, or the dog in the Sesame Street bit about a “hard-working dog.” The ditty circled in my mind,

Smart shopping skills help maximize value on all purchases. Because shopping may be concentrated in late summer and early fall, it is a great time to emphasize learning. First, buy only what you need — and remember that needs and wants are not always the same. Think about an unplanned expense or purchase over $50 for at least 24 hours. The store will usually hold an item for that long. Second, comparison shop. Price and quality vary widely and you can only find the best value by shopping around. It takes time, but is worth it. Not only will you get the item of best value, you also will feel good about your choice. Finally, negotiate. Learn to ask, “Is this your best price?” It usually is in retail stores, but not always! Ask if there are any coupons available, or if a sale is planned within the next few days. If the item goes on sale within 30 days, can you bring your receipt in for the sale price? Learn about products before you shop to help purchase what you want at the right price. Find copies of Consumer Reports in your library and learn to use the information for any major purchase. Read other books and magazines to learn about the things you plan to buy. Browse the Internet for information.

College preparation

Throughout childrens’ lives, parents help youngsters to build skills for productive lives. Long before the time comes to see these young people off to school, or while waiting with them to hear from prospective employers, many families have spent time talking about the importance of planning and preparing for success in school and at work. Planning and preparing for success in school includes mak-

!"#$%&'$()*

ing appointments with counselors and academic advisors to discuss career interests and chart courses. College-bound students must decide on a course of study that fit with personality, values and interests. Once class schedules are in place, develop a time plan for study, work, play and any volunteer work. Life on campus is different from high school. Schedules are more demanding, competition is greater and many decisions are made without benefit of input from family.

Time management

Studying requires much concentration. Plan times and places free from distractions and interruptions. The best times for studying are when a roommate is not home, when dorm traffic is not heavy and when the student is most alert. A library or a quiet room are good places to study. Include time for work and play. Planning mealtimes, laundry, exercise and social activities will not take away from fun or spontaneity but help avoid procrastination so deadlines are met and more is accomplished. Budgeting both time and money helps achieve and maintain control over one’s life.

Health

A well-balanced diet is necessary to remain healthy and alert. It is easy for older students to forget the importance of a healthy diet. Often fast food places and pizza parlors are meeting places for friends. A balanced diet includes fruits and vegetables. Protect your pocketbook and your health by making wise choices from the menu. It is important for all students to go back to school ready to learn. Information provided by P.A.

Faith n continued from page 25

“I’m a dog, I’m a dog, I’m a hard working dog. I’m a cow dog.” The video showed a mixed breed black and white dog, bigger than a Sheltie, but smaller than a Labrador, running nimbly to and fro, moving a herd of cattle to where his master wanted them. As I started out the door the next day, my 12-pound Yorkie jumped off John’s lap and stood with his nose at the crack of the screen door. His message was clear. “Okay, Indy, you can come.” After scooping grain into the feed tray in each stall, we stood in the middle of the paddock, looking down the gentle hill across two pastures, to where the horses stood under a tree in the north corner. I called and clapped to start the game. Sure enough, Sass started up, Tigger and Midnight following. Missy stood her ground until the last minute, then came charging over in her beautiful, highstepping walking horse gait, head and tail held high, to cut them off. They all circled back to the tree. “I wish Terriers chased horses, not rats,” I sighed. I knew I was putting off the inevitable. My poor knees were going to have to chase Missy down. “Go get ‘em boy!” I joked, raising my arm to point at the horses. To my amazement, my fearless brown and black ball of fluff took off like a greyhound, ignoring the gates and slipping under the fence boards. When he got to the horses, he started barking and nipping at their heels. My heart skipped a beat. If they kicked and connected it would be the end of him. But, they didn’t. Even Missy gave in. Soon, they all filed obediently

into their stalls to munch grain and wait their turn with the curry comb and hoof pick. I latched each door, then turned to gaze at my wonder dog. He was sitting in the middle of the paddock, looking smug.

Then it hit me: Often, when I feel the nudging of the Holy Spirit to go or do, I sit back down, telling God I’m too old or too inexperienced, or not learned enough. “I’m just too little, Lord,” I whisper.

will slip under the fence and give it my best shot.
