Editor’s Letter

T

ravel is one of those things I did not enjoy much of as a child. Growing up in the Midwest in a family with little means, travel for me meant to the local campground or the occasional trip out of state (by car) to visit family.

As an adult, my travel experience took off a little slow, but today is a priority for my family. I find it especially important for my children to travel and have experiences that I could not be afforded. I’m happy to report that both of my girls are savvy travelers who have flown across the country by themselves for various reasons—mostly to visit family.

They both have traveled with school groups, and both have traveled out of the country. While their passports are not full, it’s only a matter of time. Despite their travel moxie, the best trips are those we share as a family. Traveling abroad offers us exciting new experiences that we can share. Visiting Spanish-speaking countries offers my oldest, who is fluent in Spanish, the opportunity to use the language in a way she cannot at home. Going to places we don’t speak the language with our tiny translation books in hand gives us another type of experience.

Despite my upbringing, or maybe because of it, I enjoy our long weekend trips exploring places right in our own backyard. Our recent trip to Crested Butte (page 18) was a whole new experience for us although we’ve been there many times. Instead of spending all of our time hiking or strolling on Elk Avenue, we sought places we hadn’t been before including museums, restaurants and more. It was like visiting again for the first time. I’m looking forward to a summer full of weekend trips to places we’ve never been to such as Mesa Verde or the The Great Sand Dunes. But I also can’t wait to explore places we have been with a new, fresh eye and sense of adventure. Now, if I could just get the girls to enjoy being in the car instead of on a plane…

Around Town SMALL COMMUNITY OF THE YEAR The town of Lyons recently received the “Small Community of the Year” award from the Economic Development Commission of Colorado for its post-flood business recovery efforts. The town gave residents nearly $80,000 to help them rebuild after last September’s floods. A year and a half ago, Lyons applied for $47,000 in loans from a fund set up by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to help rural communities. After the floods, Mayor John O’Brien contacted the USDA to expedite distribution of the money. However, the government agency was unable to meet the request. The town then formed a committee to build its own recovery fund. The Longmont Community Foundation made a $16,500 contribution followed by donation of $10,000 from Oskar Blues’ CAN’d Aid. The remainder of the money came from individual contributions.

NO MORE BIG RED ‘YES!’ The City of Boulder has decided not to move forward with its plans for a large, red “Yes!” on the outside of the Boulder Public Library. City Manager Jane Brautigam recently acknowledged in a press release that the city did not seek enough public feedback before selecting the work. She said that the “Yes!” artwork “will not move forward as planned,” and said the city’s public art policy must be revised “to fully achieve the community’s vision for public art.” “The selection committee properly followed the Interim Policy on Public Arts and did an excellent job identifying well-known artists to participate in this project,” says Brautigam. “However, it is clear that the interim policy does not provide ample community input to ensure the selected art piece adequately reflects the Boulder community. We want to revisit how the city can create more robust public involvement in selecting public art projects before finalizing the selection.” After discussion at the following City Council meeting, Brautigam said she will not sign the contract for the artwork, and there will be a new process to choose public art for the library after the completion of a Community Cultural Plan.

PERMANENT WATERING RESTRICTIONS IN LAFAYETTE Mandatory 2014 watering restrictions LAFAYETTE: Watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. is banned, as is allowing excessive water to run over areas that do not have vegetation and spraying down or washing paved areas such as driveways. SUPERIOR: Watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. is banned. BOULDER: None. LONGMONT: None. LOUISVILLE: None. ERIE: None. SUPERIOR: None. BROOMFIELD: None, but recommended rules are available on the water conservation hotline at 303.438.6210. Lafayette officials are reminding residents that since November, the city has permanent water conservation rules in place. Those rules, codified in a city ordinance, ban most forms of outdoor irrigation between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., excessive 10 Boulder County Lifestyle | June 2014

water overrun onto sidewalks and streets, gutters and other vegetation-less surfaces and spraying down or washing paved areas including driveways. The ordinance does make exceptions to the 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. restriction for hand watering with a hose. Also excepted is irrigation of commercial agriculture, city-owned athletic fields and at the city-operated Indian Peaks Golf Course. However, the city plans to comply with the restrictions to the extent it can.

LAFAYETTE PHOTOGRAPHER CHOSEN FOR GOVERNOR’S ART SHOW Photographer Lindsey Wohlman of Lafayette was accepted into Loveland’s Governor’s Art Show. This is the first year photographers have been entered, and Wohlman is one of only two represented in the show. She works with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science to re-create the work of John James Audubon, an 18th century painter who documented at least half the country’s bird species in watercolor or prints. Wohlman is working on a two-year project to replicate the prints of Audubon. Wohlman borrows bird specimen from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science She arranges a bird to her liking and take a photo. Using Adobe Photoshop she layers images to create a still-life bird scene.

NORTHERN HARRIERS MAKE LAST STAND AT BOULDER RESERVOIR Despite the odds, a pair of northern harriers is building their ground nest just west of Boulder Reservoir. They face many threats including humans, coyotes, red-tailed hawks and more. However, if they can survive, their eggs should hatch in early June, and the young will leave the nest by mid-July. In the past 10 years, only four Boulder County northern harrier nests, all located in the wetlands surrounding Boulder Reservoir, have succeeded. The ground-nesting birds were once able to conceal their nests in extensive marshes and wetlands in Boulder County. However, loss of habitat to human encroachment is hurting the bird’s numbers. Today, the northern harrier is listed as “imperiled” on Boulder County’s Species of Special Concern list.

BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED GAIN ACCESS TO PRINT MATERIALS The Audio Information Network of Colorado (AINC) is a 24-yearold Boulder based non-profit providing blind, visually impaired, and print disabled individuals independent access to print materials. David Dawson founded AINC in 1990 under its original name of Radio Reading Service of the Rockies (RRSR). Dawson currently serves as executive director. The service gives listeners resources to learn, maintain independence, and be involved with their local community. Teaming with Rocky Mountain PBS (RMPBS), the first broadcast aired in 1991 with eight hours of original programming that was read live or recorded onto reel-to-reel tapes. Listeners could hear the Secondary Audio Program of RMPBS on their televisions or receive a pre-tuned receiver for simple access. AINC kept pace with

technology by adding telephone and web services. Three regional broadcasts now provide programming 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Local print materials such as newspapers, grocery/discount ads, and magazines are AINC’s core content. AINC provides Spanish language programming and has plans to expand its offerings in this category. There is no cost for a listener to use AINC’s services. A listener may access programming via broadcast, telephone, or internet. Programming is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Three hundred volunteers read and record all of AINC’s programming. Volunteers may come to AINC’s Boulder studios to record or may record on their home computer. In addition to the expansion of its Spanish language programming, AINC is also exploring ways that it can be supportive of school districts and fill in information gaps experienced by blind and print disabled students.

alking up to the unassuming building, there was no hint of the inspired international fare being served inside Bistro 503. The restaurant sits in an unglamorous little strip mall among a home brewing supply store, a coffee shop and Jax Mercantile. But just one step in the door and the aromas began to hint at the pleasant surprise that awaits. The menu is a tour of global flavors from Thailand to France and Italy to Central and South America. The restaurant itself is named after the telephone area code for El Salvador—Owner and

Chef Ado Salguero’s home country. He has woven those roots into various nooks of the menu, including a bacon, ham, sausage and cheese-stuffed pupusa plate topped with two over-easy eggs, sliced avocados and spicy salsa for breakfast. Although I got a chance to drool over the breakfast and lunch menus, I was there at night when over-easy eggs aren’t in the cards. Instead, my companion and I started by sharing a generous portion of mushroom crepes and an order of Brussels sprouts. Salguero—who likes to be out of the kitchen answering questions and making sure patrons are happy with their selections—informed us these sprouts have converted even die-hard “I don’t like Brussels sprouts” folks, and he didn’t disappoint. They are pan fried to perfection with a tangy granny smith apple reduction and sprinkled with pistachios and matchsticks of apple for a little crunch. While many of the dinner menu options looked enticing, my ears perked up when I heard one of the specials was scallops, my favorite fruit of the sea. These U10s (that means gi-normous) were to be served pan-seared to a medium temperature over a zucchini squash risotto, then drizzled with basil pesto and balsamic musk and topped with crispy prosciutto strips. I had to have it. The CONTINUED > complexity was out of this world.

My companion chose the house favorite, stuffed chayote. In Latin America, this small green member of the gourd family is often served among other inexpensive vegetables in soups, but Salguero has chosen to stuff it with pepper jack cheese, bread it in panko crumbs and lightly fry it, then serve over a creamy parmesan risotto with a rustic pomodoro sauce that has the perfect amount of zip to add depth to the dish.

Although Salguero’s amazing sauces, artful presentation and creative twists to the simple chayote squash might suggest otherwise, he does not consider himself a chef. He claims he learned everything he knows working in restaurants around the metro area, including Broomfield’s Bloom and Panzano in Denver. He always dreamed of having his own place. He opened on N. Public Rd. in 2011 and

moved to the current location just before Mother’s Day weekend last year. Feeling settled in, he hopes the extra space will help them grow and continue to surprise guests with new menu items from different corners of the world. At just $14–25 for an artfully prepared entree, wines by the glass at $8.50 or less and nine craft beers on tap under $6, Bistro 503 is also a welcome surprise for the pocketbook. I always like surprises and will definitely be back to see what else they’re cooking up at Bistro 503. Hopefully it will involve more Brussels sprouts.

All Aboard! Fore-and-Aft with Community Sailing of Colorado ARTICLE DELL BLEEKMAN | PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF COMMUNITY SAILING OF COLORADO

A

n early morning breeze sends ripples across Cherry Creek Reservoir as a young lady pushes her Vanguard Optimist into the cool water. She climbs in, fastens the rudder, adjusts the single sail on the eight-foot dinghy, and the wind does the rest. Welcome to Day 4 of a week-long sailing camp held by Community Sailing of Colorado. COMMUNITY SAILING

Yesterday’s stuffy yacht club, with its monied patrons and expensive boats, has been replaced with a new generation of enthusiasts eager to get out on the water and even more eager to help others experience the thrill of sailing. Community Sailing of Colorado (CSC) is one of hundreds of community sailing programs flourishing throughout the country. Colorado may be a landlocked state, but the sailors at CSC simply smile and ask: who needs the coast? SAILING FOR ALL

Founded as a non-profit organization in 1994, Community Sailing of Colorado began with a mission to provide children with access to sailing. They later expanded and currently provide multiple programs for kids, adults and those with disabilities. Brandon 16 Boulder County Lifestyle | June 2014

Kass has been involved with sailing programs for almost 20 years and has been CSC’s executive director the past four years. “We get kids hooked on sailing by being safe, having fun and providing instruction,” Kass declares. “When we do those three things kids come back as different individuals.” Community Sailing of Colorado reaches a wide demographic. “Some parents sign up their kids because they’re looking for something completely different,” explains Kass, “while others have had experience on the water and are looking to hone skills.” Kass is proud of the scholarship program, which assists students who might not think of sailing as something they could do. “We want to eliminate the financial barrier to get students from all types of backgrounds involved with our program,” Kass says. In 2011, CSC expanded its reach to offer lessons to students with disabilities. “This was an important step forward for us,” Kass says, “and in partnering with Craig Hospital we were able to make it happen.” In 2013 CSC held lessons for 75 individuals with disabilities; this year they hope to double that number. VOLUNTEERS MAKE IT HAPPEN

As with any nonprofit, the backbone of the organization is the


volunteer force. CSC relies on more than 70 volunteers who do everything from prepping boats, fundraising and, of course, providing more than 500 students with lessons. Ken Hovland has been a Community Sailing volunteer for 12 years. An avid sailor himself, Hovland felt it was time to give back to the sport that had given him so much. “I most enjoy watching students make progress,” Hovland states. “Some come to us not knowing the mast from the rudder but then we see their self-confidence build throughout the week.” ABLE TO SAIL

One of the more popular programs CSC offers is “ABLE to Sail”—essentially a youth empowerment camp on water. From mastering the technical aspects of sailing to solving problems that arise, students build character and find that what they learn about themselves is as important as learning to sail. “Sailing provides so many life lessons,” Kass points out. “So many of our students come back as different individuals, more confident and excited to share what they have learned.”

dents sailing leads to new places, not just physically but also mentally. This summer, Peyton Anne will apply to be a Junior Instructor, a small group of experienced students who play a key role in the instructional process. EXPANDING TO BOULDER

For the past 15 years CSC has been sailing in the Cherry Creek Reservoir; Kass is particularly excited about this season since Community Sailing will be expanding its reach from Denver to Boulder. Partnering with Boulder’s Parks & Recreation Department, Community Sailing will offer five-day sailing camps at different levels to the public. “This is a new opportunity for us and we’re thrilled to branch out to Boulder,” Kass says. These sailing camps, starting in June and going throughout the summer, will be held at the Boulder Reservoir. To learn more, volunteer or sign up for lessons, visit CommunitySailing.org.

NEXT-GENERATION SAILORS

Thirteen-year-old Peyton Anne James has been sailing with CSC the past two years. “It was very much her idea,” recalls Juli, Payton Anne’s mother, “and after that first week-long camp she was hooked.” Juli wasn’t surprised, given her daughter loves the water and has an uncle who owns a sailboat. “It’s always something new, whether it’s the wind or other conditions,” her mother says. Peyton Anne seems representative of young sailors who enjoy unlocking puzzles on the water, who relish the discipline that sailing provides. For these stuJune 2014 | Boulder County Lifestyle 17


Gunnison and Crested Butte

Your Summer Destinations for Family Fun and Outdoor Adventures

Elk Avenue in Summer

N

estled in a valley and surrounded by nearly two million acres of pristine, mountainous wilderness, Gunnison-Crested Butte has a prime location in southwest Colorado. Fair-weather activities include mountain biking, hiking, wildflower and wildlife viewing, climbing, boating, whitewater rafting, kayaking, fly-fishing, camping and horseback riding. Year-round visitors enjoy distinctive restaurants, locally owned shops, stimulating cultural opportunities and festivals galore ranging from the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival and Gunnison Cattlemen’s Days to Crested Butte Bike Week and Gunnison Car Show weekend. Along a 31-mile stretch of wide-open vistas and stunning scenery, visitors can explore Gunnison, Almont, Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte and connect with the quaint and historic burgs of Pitkin, Gothic, Tin Cup,

GETTING THERE There are two main driving routes from Boulder to Gunnison and Crested Butte. Head south out of Boulder on Highway 93. The road turns into Highway 6 in Golden. Proceed southeast on Highway 6 to 470 heading south. Exit west at Highway 285 and proceed southwest for approximately 100 miles to Buena Vista and the intersection of highways 285 and 24. Continue south on 285 to Highway 50. Head west over Monarch Pass and down the back side to Gunnison.

Marble, Powderhorn and Crystal, also located in Gunnison County. Gunnison and Crested Butte, both founded in 1880, are known for Victorian-era charm, friendly Western hospitality and free-spirited nature. Almont is a fishing, rafting and rock climbing mecca, and the resort village of Mt. Crested Butte is home to renowned Crested Butte Mountain Resort. Visitors also can explore Curecanti National Recreation Area, home to Colorado’s largest body of water, and the nearby Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Gunnison County is part of the West Elk Loop and Silver Thread Scenic & Historic Byways. A recent visit introduced me to some new places and solidified some of my favorites. The following is a short list of the places I loved and wanted to share with you and your family. I’m sure you’ll discover many treasures of your own!

The Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ) is located just 79 miles from Gunnison, providing additional regional air service to the area.

WHERE TO STAY While there are many great places to stay including 4-star resorts, here are a couple of my favorites.

They allow dogs, too, for a nominal extra

The other main route to Crested Butte and Gunnison is to take Highway 93 to Golden, then hop on 70 west to the Leadville exit. Take Highway 24 south through Leadville and on to Buena Vista. Proceed south or west over Cottonwood Pass road (Highway 306). 18 Boulder County Lifestyle | June 2014

WHERE TO EAT

WHAT TO DO

Crested Butte is known for fine dining, but some of my favorites are the off-the-beaten-path spots perfect for visiting with the kids.

In addition to all the hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding you can do on the numerous trails in the area, don’t miss these great family fun spots!

Another must-have is the grilled salmon over risotto if it’s available when you visit. 411 Third St., Crested Butte MarchitellisGourmetNoodle.com

Step back in time and experience the heritage that makes Crested Butte so distinctive at The Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum. Explore coal mining in Crested Butte from the early 1880s to the 1950s and the long history of skiing in the Gunnison Valley. The model town including some of the distinctive buildings along Elk Avenue (the main street in Crested Butte) and railroad is really fun for kids and adults alike. It was elected the most popular exhibit at the Crested Butte Museum. Do not miss the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame. The Museum Store is full of souvenirs including photo reproductions from Crested Butte’s history, books, children’s toys, home decor and other gifts. CrestedButteMuseum.com

The biscuits and gravy are filling, but to really power up try the breakfast burrito that comes smothered in green chili. 114 N. Main St., Gunnison, TheWCafe.com

teocalli tamale This is a great spot for lunch on Elk Avenue in Crested Butte. The tamales are a must and make sure you get the heaping helping of cilantro on top.

ATMOSPHERE

“We try to keep it lighter and brighter,” says Ditslear. “The first week we were open, somebody came in and said, ‘It’s like walking into a giant hug.’” Or a giant pint glass. Imagine a backyard patio lined with beer in every shade—gold, amber, copper, smoky brown—and you’ll get a sense of the warm, wood-paneled walls and tables swathed in natural light that will keep you lingering for at least one more round than originally intended. And with a heap of card and board games, even non-beer-drinkers, or those too young to drink, can find plenty of excuses to kick back and lose track of time. DRINK

Fun in the Suns

But for the rest of us, what’s on tap is reason alone to make the trip. Between the nine beers currently available—each brewed inhouse—anyone can find their niche, even if you’re not sure what your niche is. “A lot of people will say, ‘I don’t really drink beer, but I tried what he had, and that’s really good,” Ditslear recounts. My advice: Get a sampler. I tried the Cap’n Long ESB (smooth and malty), 1st Avenue River IPA (crisp and not too hoppy), Luminous Monk (a balanced Belgian with a hint of cider), Sun Wortshipper (full and nutty), Smoked Porter (like drinking barbecue ribs), and Sunglasses at Night—the first in 300 Suns’ “Shades of IPA” series. Unconventional, but easy-drinking, all six left me surprised and eager for more.

olorado is known, first and foremost, for two things: Our sunshine and our beer. Anyone living here would be quick to point out that’s not the whole story, of course. We’ve also got Broncos, burritos, hot springs, comedy clubs, purple mountains, Red Rocks and thousands more things to do, see, climb, drink and eat. But let’s be honest: Nothing compares to our beer and sunshine—especially when taken in together. That’s the idea behind 300 Suns Brewing, a new brewery in Longmont. Borrowing its name from the so-called three hundred days of sunshine Colorado receives annually, 300 Suns seeks to emulate the perfect summer day, year-round. “The summer after college,” says co-owner Dan Ditslear, “my friends and I would go down to this local craft brewery, and the next day all of us would joke, ‘You know, I had the craziest dream last night...’ ‘Me too!’” That was the first time I thought, “I really like craft beer.” Years later, that same sense of camaraderie (and love for microbrewing) inspired Ditslear—along with his wife Jean and their friends Mark Lusher and Candace Newcomb—to start attending homebrewing classes, and eventually convert a local warehouse into their own commercial brewery and tasting room. 24 Boulder County Lifestyle | June 2014

COMMUNITY

Ingenuity doesn’t occur in a bubble, and the owners of 300 Suns attribute their distinctive creations to years spent immersed in the craft. “We did a lot of ‘research,’” says Ditslear, referring to the countless beers he and his partners sampled before they opened the brewery, “on what we liked and didn’t like, and what advice we could get from other breweries.” He describes 300 Suns’ deep relationship with its community— not just the surrounding breweries, but hobbyists and fans. The brewery’s recurring “Collabeeration” contest, for instance, invites homebrewers to submit their own beers to a panel of community tasters and judges. The highest-rated beer will win a spot alongside 300 Suns’ offerings at the tap. If this all sounds like too much beer for you, 300 Suns promises more drinks and menu items, including wine and light pub food, to look forward to in the near future. So what about Ditslear—has 300 SUNS BREWING opening his own brewery ruined 331 First Ave., Unit C his taste for beer? Longmont “Contrary to popular belief, I do 720.442.8292 not drink a beer every day,” he says. 300SunsBrewing.com “I drink two.”

Parting Thoughts

Please Remain Seated With Your Seat Belt Tightly Fastened WORDS ELLEN NORDBERG

W

ith extended family on both coasts requiring multiple flights per year, my husband and I lived for the day our identical twin boys could entertain themselves while traveling. As infants, they slept on the seat-back tray tables, making the flights fairly easy. But the stress of juggling gear meant that I managed to leave my wallet behind while nursing them in airports more than once. (Thank God for compassionate fathers who work at the Hertz counter.) As the boys got older, controlling them became more complex. Once, a four-year-old Axel caused a scene in Logan Airport by announcing he couldn’t leave Boston without a Yankees baseball cap. I was unable to convince him that no vendor in Boston would sell us a Yankees hat and that an intervention from TSA was more likely. This generated much hilarity for every Red Sox fan within 500 feet. Then my twins were five, and we were stuck on an indefinitely delayed Southwest Airlines flight. I was on the aisle, and the boys were next to me poking Transformer figurines into each other’s ears and shouting, “Megatron Rules!” The flight was full of restless families, and the noise level in the cabin sounded like a Saturday morning at Chuck E. Cheese’s. The flight staff got creative. “Would any children like to come up and sing for us?” a female attendant inquired. Parents prodded shy offspring toward the aisle. I, on the other hand, lifted my face off the armrest, and rubbed the foot print on my cheek left there in Aidan’s haste to be first in line. Axel reluctantly accompanied him. Immediately, the theme song from Cars blared overhead – a capella, off-key and frighteningly familiar. “I’m American made, I’m a large CHEVROLET!” Axel’s voice peBLS_saggy_5.8.14_v1 copy.pdf 1 5/8/14 12:49 PM tered out, but ever fearless Aidan took over.

“I was born in the South, sometimes I have a big mouth…” Passengers exchanged smirky looks and shook their heads. Imagine having a child that bold! (Or tuneless.) “I gotta SAY it!” the voice continued, although Axel was already back in his seat. Then scuffling was heard, and a female voice murmuring, “Someone else’s turn,” but apparently Aidan wasn’t easily daunted. “DA NA NA NA NA NA! DA NA NA NA NA NA!” Eventually the flight attendant wrestled the mic from him, thanked him for his effort, and a handful of people clapped. Aidan came beaming back to his seat. Several months later, on a flight to California, Aidan twisted and twitched in his seat as we waited for take-off. “What’s the matter?” I said. Aidan turned his head 180 degrees in each direction, craning his neck over the seatback. “What is it?” I asked. “Do you have to go to the bathroom?” “No,” he said, looking hopefully toward the crew. “It’s just, well, I don’t want to miss the singing!” What had I wished for? Children who could entertain themselves. What did I get? Twins who could entertain everyone around them. Sometimes you just have to open your mind to the solutions the universe provides. Especially when your kids will be carrying their suitcases themselves and flying off to their own destinations soon enough.
