CSU launches Spanish certificate in animal health and care By Jorge Espinoza @jorgespinoza14

Animal health and care students can now learn how to better communicate in their work settings. The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures has created a new certificate program in Spanish for

animal health and care, with the goal of helping students learn how to better communicate with Spanish-speaking workers in farm settings. “This is important because Spanish speakers are the primary caretakers for these animals,” said Shannon Zeller, curriculum developer and Spanish instructor

According to Zeller the need for this program stems from the fact that Spanish-speaking people make up the majority of those working livestock farms. The 12-credit program was started by Zeller and Spanish professor Maura Velazquez-Castillo and is open to all undergraduate students with an interest in working

with animals. Velazquez-Castillo says that another reason this program is needed is due to the lack of Spanish proficiency in the field of agriculture. “For me, the interest was that this was a unique field,” Velazquez-Castillo said. “The foreign languages we have across the nation are usually

limited to one or two courses in business Spanish or Spanish for medicine.” Velazquez-Castillo also said that this program is something that can’t be contained into just one class, which is more the reason why the program was needed.

Libertarian candidate Roger Barris talks carbon tax, student loans By Samantha Ye @samxye4

Roger Barris is all for consistency — unlike Democrat and Republican politicians, whom he stated are “complete hypocrites.” The Libertarian candidate for Congressional District 2 representative is running to create “the smallest government possible in order to create the greatest scope for individual liberty.” To Barris, his party’s views are actually principled and consistent. Democrats do not support economic freedom and will make policy based on polls, while the GOP cannot even pretend they support individual freedom under the current administration, Barris said. Barris’ small government values reflect in his many policy plans. He said he would introduce a single line bill declassifying cannabis from a Schedule I drug, and he is in favor of establishing term limits in Congress because “the most corrupt thing in American politics is the professional politician,” among other issues. Overarchingly, he is running to “de-weaponize” the federal government. While Barris finds it disheartening to see everything so divisive and politicized nowadays, he said it is an understandable consequence of big government. “If we have the federal government making every decision, involving itself in every aspect of

people’s lives — and this is both on the right and the left — then, of course, we have to fight like mad over who controls it,” Barris said. “And, that is not the America I want.” One of his main campaign promises is to make a federal government so small people will not have to fight over it. His other two promises are to end the foreign wars and cut taxes while also cutting spending. Barris moved to Colorado in 2017 after working throughout Europe for over 20 years. He has worked in investments, primarily real estate, and co-founded a company as an entrepreneur in 2010. He sold his interest in 2015 and is currently retired at 59 years old. Unlike most Libertarian candidates, Barris is running a full-time campaign. Though he says his chances are slim,   his objective is really to jumpstart the Libertarian party as a viable third-party alternative. If Barris does well, he hopes it will capture disillusioned old party voters and politicians, more mainstream support from Silicon Valley, Wall Street, Hollywood and media and pollster attention, all of which would allow Libertarians to begin building their own political campaign infrastructure. “I don’t have to win to win,” Barris said. Third parties can often be seen as spoilers who draw votes away from one major party thus allowing the other major party to

win. But voters can choose their conscience this election, Barris said, because there is nothing to spoil. CD2 has voted blue since 1974, and while a Republican could win in theory, Barris said, it would require a strong candidate, a perfect and well-financed campaign and probably a Red Wave — none of which he thinks Republican Peter Yu has.  “The reality is that if you vote blue or if you vote red, mathematically your vote is meaningless,” Barris said.  “Conversely, if you vote for me as a Libertarian, you help do what 60 percent of Americans say they want which is to create a real third party alternative.” On the Issues Barris takes umbrage with those who suggest Libertarians are for big business. In fact, he said, they are for free markets,  and for him especially,  incentives and competition,  not “crony capitalism.” That attitude is reflected in his environmental policy. While Barris said he has no problem with alternative energy, he does not want the government to subsidize it to fruition. Rather, he favors market forces which have led to replacing coal with natural gas fracking. He would also minimize carbon dioxide emissions through a carbon tax. While he admits supporting a carbon tax is not very Libertarian of him, tragedy of the commons is one of the areas the free market cannot control, Barris said,

and is a place for legitimate government regulation. Those unwilling to use price incentives are not really serious about the issue.  The carbon tax would come with two qualifiers, however: the removal of all other taxes, regulations and subsidies designed to reduce carbon consumption or promote alternative energy sources, and it would be a revenue neutral tax. “I want to create incentives and not rules,” Barris said. The tax would be built into price increases of gas and other carbon-emitting sources. Once

taxes are collected, each household or adult will receive an even cut of the revenue in the form of a dividend. Those who emit fewer carbon emissions would then end up receiving more than they pay in taxes. Barris would make the student debt crisis correct itself by removing all government subsidies and loan programs from higher education. Barris compared the current student loan situation to the

Barris >> from page 3 situation before the housing crisis of 2008. “If the government were out of the business of lending money for schools, the price would plummet,” Barris said. “And then, all the concerns people have about who’s gonna pay for school would largely disappear.” After that, private sector loans and charitable donations would cover any remaining needs, Barris said. On immigration, Barris joked that the only wall he wants to build is between Colorado and California. The candidate supports a more accessible guest worker program for unskilled immigrant workers — thus allowing them to fulfill the United States agriculture demand and easily return to their home country — and more support of H1B visas for highly skilled workers. “One of (President Trump’s) big lies is that he’s only against illegal immigration — that is bullshit,” Barris said. “He’s against every form of immigration.” Under a Trump executive order, H1B visas have become significantly harder to obtain or renew, according to research done by Forbes. Barris called this “absolute insanity” as the types of immigrants who receive H1B visas greatly benefit the country and should be “welcomed with open arms.” For children brought into the country undocumented, or Dreamers, Barris said they should absolutely have path to citizenship. While Democrat Joe Neguse has said he would vote to impeach Trump and Peter Yu has said he would not, Barris said, right now, the proper thing to do is “throw (Trump) out of office through the electoral process.” “Only if he committed a high crime and misdemeanor as president, should we in Congress overturn the democratic decision of U.S. voters,” Barris said. Part of his message to young voters — one he spoke of at his last visit to Colorado State University — is that big government is a consistent conspiracy against young people. “Big government is always in favor of the status quo, is always against the future, and guess what, young people are the future,” Barris said. “And so it’s amazing to me the extent young people believe in big government.” Samantha Ye can be reached at

Red Feather Prescribed Burn halts By Ravyn Cullor @RCullor99

New ignitions for the Red Feather Prescribed Burn were halted today, but some burns are continuing in the interior of the burn area, according to a tweet on the Canyon Lakes Ranger twitter page. According to a release, no buring in additional units is planned for the rest of the week. The Prescribed Burn was halted on Friday, Sept. 7 because the wind was not blowing in the correct direction, said Reghan Cloudman, public affairs specialist for the Forest Service. The burn is located North of Red Feather Lakes and East of the Crystal Lakes Subdivision, according to a Forest Service press release. Over the weekend, approximately 730 acres were burned. “The Red Feather Prescribed Burn is taking place to reduce the risk of wildfires in this area by reducing hazardous fuels, along with forest restoration efforts,” Cloudman said.

There are a lot of things at stake having to do with this language gap.” To put the program together, Zeller said that they used a comprehensive analysis of work conditions to assess and understand the specific language used in the job environment. “One thing that definitely distinguishes the program is the fact that we did an in-depth needs analysis,” Zeller said. “We went out there and spoke to all stakeholders involved in animal care, owners, operators, managers, translators, veterinarians and foremen, in order to find out what are the most common to the most complex tasks that take place on these farms.” Administering in-depth need analysis was helpful in understanding the needs of Spanish-speaking workers, Zeller said. “We also collected a language corpus, so all of the Spanish-speaking interviews and observations that we saw, we recorded and collected.

To prevent wildfires, Edison seeks $582 million from ratepayers for grid By Joseph Serna Los Angeles Times

In a sweeping effort to reduce the wildfire risk from electric power lines, Southern California Edison said Monday it wants to spend $582 million for a series of improvements to its grid that likely would mean higher bills for ratepayers. Edison’s action comes while another huge California utility, Pacific Gas & Electric, faces up to $15 billion in losses from last year’s wine country fires, which destroyed more than 8,000 homes and killed more than 40 people. Residents have blamed downed power lines for the fires, though officials have not completed their investigation of the causes. Many of California’s most destructive fires have been fueled by powerful winds, which in some cases have caused power lines to snap off and spark blazes. Utility companies are already on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollar in losses, but officials have warned that the losses will grow much steeper if the agencies can’t find ways to reduce the risks. Edison is asking the state for permission to spend the $582 million on improvements, including strengthening poles and using better technology to determine when winds put the power grid at risk. Over the next two years, an estimated 600 miles of exposed power lines would be replaced

with insulated ones immune to sparking if they came in contact with a fallen branch or a Mylar balloon. Officials said ratepayers would see their bills increase between 81 cents and $1.20 a month, but far less than if Edison becomes liable for a catastrophic fire like the one that hit Sonoma, Napa, Lake and Mendocino counties last October. Edison is estimated to face up to $4 billion in losses from the Thomas fire, which hit Ventura and Santa Barbara counties in December, and the Montecito mudslide that occurred a month later. PG&E’s potential losses there were so vast that the utility said it faced possible bankruptcy if it did not get some relief from the state. Those concerns prompted the state Legislature last month to approve a bill that would allow PG&E to borrow money for its 2017 wildfire costs while using funds collected from ratepayers to pay back the loan. PG&E lobbied lawmakers heavily for help, warning that Wall Street investors could downgrade the company’s credit rating without relief from the Legislature. The bill was controversial, with some calling it a bailout for a utility that should have been better prepared to deal with the wildfire danger. Wildfire liability has been a growing problem for California’s utilities. San Diego Gas & Electric has spent more than a

decade seeking permission to pass along to ratepayers $379 million in costs from the deadly 2007 fires in San Diego County, which destroyed hundreds of homes. SDG&E spent $2.4 billion to resolve more than 2,000 lawsuits related to those fires, but the utility insists the blazes were ignited by factors beyond its control – including extreme

Santa Ana winds and a tree limb that fell onto an SDG&E line due to high winds. The upgrades Edison is proposing would reduce those risks, said Bill Chiu, the director of Edison’s Grid Resiliency and Wildfire Safety program. “In the state of the ‘new normal,’ there’s this tremendous urgency to act quickly. Eight

of the 20 most destructive fires in California happened since 2015,” Chiu said. “Even though wildfires start for many reasons, utility power lines is almost 10 percent. We feel it’s necessary we do our part.” Content pulled from Tribune New Services.

Rams should focus less on football Traces of the Black Leta McWilliams


Editor’s Note: All opinion section content reflects the views of the individual author only and does not represent a stance taken by The Collegian or its editorial board Football season is arguably one of the best parts of college. Saturdays are filled with tailgates, camaraderie and the echo of a cannon surrounded by the cheers of students, faculty and alumni alike. It brings the Fort Collins community together in a way that almost nothing else can, and it’s a shame. Colorado State University football isn’t our top performing sport, and we know it. Through the year we should be focusing our attention, and money, on some of our other sports teams as well as taking stress off of CSU’s football team. With our recent win on Saturday against Arkansas, CSU students are riding the wave of victory, especially after losing the 2018 Rocky Mountain Showdown. While this is exciting for the CSU community, there’s still stress for the student-athletes to perform well in future games. For non-athletes, school is already stressful enough. Because of America’s obsession with college football, many student-athletes experience severe forms of anxiety and depression

Recently, many college football players have shared their stories about dealing with mental illnesses in regards to their sport, such as Washington Huskies wide receiver Isaiah Woods. Some student-athletes even discussed turning to substance abuse in order to cope with the pressure, based on a 2016 report by ESPN. This type of stress shouldn’t be the norm for college athletes, and it could decrease if we as a community put less pressure on football.

“We should support all of our teams as much as we support our football team and stop putting al of our focus on one sport.” Many of CSU’s club teams play exceptionally well, yet they don’t get nearly as much support as CSU’s football team. CSU’s baseball team consistently performs well, yet they don’t receive the funding they need. An article published last May in The Collegian described the team’s frustrations with the lack of attention and funding from the university, and it’s completely warranted. They’re arguably the most successful team on campus, with conference titles and national championships, and they have an annual budget of only $3,000. Even our official teams do

well, and they don’t get nearly as much attention as our football team. CSU’s volleyball team finished their season last year with 29-4 overall. They’re one of most successful Division 1 volleyball programs in NCAA history, and yet they’re overshadowed by our football team. We should support all of our teams as much as we support our football team, and stop putting all of our focus on one sport. Some would argue that putting pressure on football is a good thing because it provides the school with more money and allows students to receive more athletic scholarships, especially since CSU spent more money providing scholarships to its athletes than any other school in the conference. This mindset can be transferred to other sports. If we, as a university, put more emphasis on other sports that are performing well, we can still attract people and money to the university. The attention doesn’t have to be just on football, especially when we have such incredible athletes playing other sports. Instead of supporting sports where we leave at halftime out of disappointment, go support teams we can feel proud of. We put way too much emphasis on college football, and it’s causing other athletes to be overshadowed. We should be supporting all of our teams, because they deserve it.

CSU: Don’t be dis-empowered By Guest Author @CSUCollegian

Editor’s Note: All opinion section content reflects the views of the individual author only and does not represent a stance taken by The Collegian or its editorial board. Letters to the Editor reflect the view of a member of the campus community and are submitted to the publication for approval. Dear readers, This is a response to “CSU needs to protect students from hate speech” published Sept. 3, 2018.  First of all, I appreciate CSU’s policy on the free speech space. I think the only way we can ever really stop hate speech is by education, by starting a discussion. This is an incredibly hard thing to do, and last week’s controversy

with Brother Jed and his followers proves that without a doubt. However, there were so many of us out on the Plaza that day, standing in solidarity with each other. Supporting one another. Listening to one another’s stories. That is a beautiful thing. Be proud of that and proud of each other. To those who were hurt and upset, do not ever let anyone make you feel less than who you are. You are loved, you are valued, and you do not have to validate who you are or how you live to anyone. Know this: You are deserving of respect, honor and courtesy as much as anyone else. Your life is your’s and no one can take your power from you. Ever. I encourage you to be proud of who you are and to always strive to grow as a person.  We are all different. That is one of the reasons I chose to go

to this school. Diversity is what makes this world beautiful. We may come from every region of the world, be of every color, every belief, and when we stand together in solidarity, nothing will ever stop us. I am writing this to empower each and every one of you to connect. A community is when we all work together. We don’t have to agree with each other on everything, we just have to support, care, and respect each other. To stand up for each other when people try to dis-empower us because no one has that right.

Death found in Clark Editor’s note: This is a satire piece from the Collegian’s opinion section. Real names may be used in fictitious/semi-fictitious ways. Those who do not read editor’s notes are subject to being offended. FORT COLLINS – Just when you thought it was safe to go back on campus, after the Cube in the Morgan Library had been cleared of all bed bugs, traces of the Black Death have been found in the Clark buildings. The Black Death, or bubonic plague, is most famous for killing a third of medieval Europe in the 14th century and is transmitted via fleas and infected animals. This recent discovery has added more fuel to the fire concerning the proposed renovation of Clark, which has been neglected by the University despite health and aesthetic concerns. “Asbestos is one thing, but a disease from medieval Europe is just the last straw,” said one concerned student. “What’s

next? Are we gonna get polio from dining hall food?” “Most history and liberal arts classes are in these two buildings,” another student pointed out. “Maybe CSU is slowly trying to kill off people of those colleges.” President Tony Frank does have a background in STEM fields, so this accusation is not that wild. How the Black Death got to Clark is still a mystery. A popular theory proposes that Frank is secretly working with the campus squirrels. Frank has previously been accused of just being 20-30 squirrels in a suit. While this claim is extremely unlikely, students have spotted him pretending to be a squirrel and jumping between the trees in the Oval. Some students aren’t taking any chances with their health on campus. In light of the recent concerns, one brave freshman has abstained from all sexual activity out of fear of getting cooties. This is a developing story. Ethan Vassar can be reached at

CSU volleyball comes out strong in Michigan but falls late to the host By Sergio Santistevan @TheRealsSergio

In what was set to be the second-toughest tournament of the season, Colorado State volleyball played to a 2-1 record at the Michigan Challenge. The Rams opened the tournament sweeping Southeastern Conference foe Louisiana State University in three tightly-contested sets (25-23, 25-22, 2523). In the opening set, LSU jumped out to a quick 5-1 lead, but the Rams eventually tied the match up at 12. The entire set feature plenty of back-andforth action with seven lead changes and 14 ties. CSU scored the final three points of the set for the first set win. The second set was more of the same, but CSU gained the lead at 13-12 and never surrendered it from there. Looking for the sweep in the third set, CSU built upon their early lead and never looked back. Despite an LSU comeback, the Rams captured the set victory and the sweep to begin the weekend on a high note.

“To be honest, I am not happy the way we played today,” coach Tom Hilbert said. “We’re giving away a bunch of points and luckily today we played a team that gave away more points than we did.” In the second matchup of the night, the Rams defeated Oakland University in what amounted to four sets (14-25, 25-15, 25-16, 25-17). CSU came out with a different starting lineup than usual and the Golden Grizzlies took advantage of it. Oakland built a big lead as the Rams tried to figure things out in the early going of set one. Oakland jumped out to a 17-8 lead before taking the opening set 25-14, putting the Rams in comeback mode from the start. Fortunately for the Rams, they returned to normal, hitting a highly-efficient .438 percentage after returning to their normal lineup as CSU coasted to a 25-15 set victory. The next two sets were the most competitive of the matchup as CSU prevailed in both despite the adversity to earn their second victory in the tournament.

Reigning Mountain West Player of the Year, junior Katie Oleksak, recorded 45 assists and 10 digs to earn her first double-double of the season and freshman Jessica Jackson had a career-high 12 kills in the matchup. Mainly in the background behind star Breana Runnels, Jackson has shown several flashes in her playing time, dating back to last season when she succeeded in limited playing time as well. In the final game of the Michigan Challenge, the Rams met a familiar opponent. CSU defeated the University of Michigan twice last season, with one win coming in the NCAA tournament. The Rams could not make it three-in-arow over No. 20 Michigan and were swept by the host team (21-25, 23-25, 18-25). CSU gave Michigan all they could handle in the first two sets with both teams exchanging points, but Michigan’s lategame offense proved too be too much. The Rams were dominated most of the third set and never shrunk the lead to less than four. Michigan recorded seven

aces, all by Michigan freshman Paige Jones, and controlled the net, out-blocking the Rams 116. Hilbert gave credit to his team for playing well and was impressed by the play of Michigan and Jones. “I thought some good things came from the match from an offensive standpoint,” Hilbert said. “We did not defend great against Michigan, we blocked some of the stuff, but

we couldn’t stop number one (Jones).” CSU will look to recover in their final weekend before they start conference play. CSU will host Indiana State at Moby Arena on September 14 before heading to Boulder, Colorado on September 15 to face both Portland State and the University of Colorado.

CSU soccer plays to a split weekend once again on their home field By Adam Williams @AdamJ_Williams

Colorado State Soccer continued their long stretch of home games last weekend with matches against Eastern Washington and Grand Canyon University. In the Rams opening match, Eastern Washington kicked off the game with an aggressive stint in the CSU zone. After the aggressive start, the Rams gained control of the ball in the Eastern Washington zone and set up senior Hannah Gerdin for a shot at the net that went high and wide. The entire game served as a series of possessions in the offensive zone for each team with neither dominating offensive possession for more than seven minutes. In the 21st minute, Eastern Washington threw the ball into play and created pressure on the CSU defense. Eastern Washington’s Emma Vanderhyden shot first but was denied by CSU goalkeeper freshman Gabbi McDonald but the rebound came right to redshirt freshman Brittany Delridge for an easy goal as McDonald’s save put her out of position. The game continued on with both teams having chances but a failure to convert them. In the 72nd minute, Eastern Washington’s goalkeeper Kelsee Winston took away one of the Rams best chances when she came out of the net, jumped in the

air, went body to body with CSU’s sophomore Taylor Steinke and caught the ball. If she did not get there, Steinke was set up for an easy tap-in goal. Not finishing chances was a troubling trend for the Rams against Eastern Washington as they finished with 14 shots, five of which required saves. As CSU was searching for momentum to build off from, coach Hempen went with a unique tactic by pulling CSU goalkeeper McDonald and inserting sophomore Karli Eheart. Hempen instructed his team that no one was going to be in net, a maneuver similar to pulling the goalie in hockey. The maneuver allowed the Rams to put on the pressure that generated chances for Lauren Jones and Caeley Lordemann. But, the Rams could not find the back of the net. “We haven’t scored a goal, and what’s the difference if you lose by one, two, three or four if you’re trying to get one. That was it,” Hempen said. “It was probably silly, and we hadn’t practiced it, but we did put some pressure on.” In the 83rd minute, Eastern Washington’s Brooke Dunbar took advantage of the empty net and scored Eastern Washington’s second goal of the game, sealing the Rams’ fate.  “I thought we were playing well, really well,” Hempen said. “We couldn’t find a goal and

we gave up a corner kick and it bounced the right way for them. The only thing you could possibly change is finding the back of the net.” In the second game of the weekend, the Rams looked to rebound against Grand Canyon University. The Rams came out against GCU with a highly aggressive offensive attack, putting pressure on and allowing GCU to have minimal time in the offensive zone. In the 11th minute, sophomore Ally Murphy-Pauletto drove hard towards the GCU net. The pressure CSU had been applying seemed to be close to paying dividends until Murphy-Pauletto was cut down by a GCU defender, resulting in a foul. The foul led to the only goal of the match on a CSU penalty kick goal by Lordemann. Lordemann lined the ball up, firing the shot left of diving GCU goalkeeper Abby Burton for her second goal of the season. Finally, the Rams put the ball in the back of the net. “She stepped up and buried it, knowing how much the goal is a premium. That’s a lot of pressure right there,” Hempen said.    The goal only counted for a single tally on the board, but the sentiment of finally getting a goal lifted the team. “I take all the credit on the stat sheet but honestly, all the work

goes to AP (Murphy-Pauletto). If she doesn’t take that girl on, and drive at her, we don’t get that PK, and we don’t score a goal,” Lordemann said. After the goal, CSU’s strong defense went to work. GCU put forth a renewed effort in the offensive zone but could not get anything past McDonald who started her second consecutive game in place of injured goalkeeper redshirt junior Hunter Peifer. McDonald was helped by her teammates who only allowed GCU to take 12 shots with only 5 of those requiring McDonald to make a save. In the 83rd minute, McDon-

ald made one of the more aggressive plays on the ball as GCU forward McKenzie Cooks drove hard to the net. The freshman charged out of the net to meet her and made a great catch save to ward off the GCU attack. “There were two moments that we broke down and had a fast break where I had to make a save, but that happens when I have had a defense that has saved me so many times,” McDonald said. The Rams next matchup will come against Gonzaga Thursday, Sept. 13 at home once again. Adam Williams can be reach at






A WORTHY PASSION FOR THE OUTDOORS JON COMISKY Breathe in the crisp morning air. Let it wake your body and soul. Sip your coffee. Warm your hands. Feel the water around your waders. Ignore

your chilled toes. Listen to the breeze in the reeds and rhythmic whistle on the wing of your quarry. The sun has yet to break over the horizon but every minute the light uncovers more of what was once unknown around you. Rack your trusted weapon and quiet the dog. The time has come.

If you have ever been hunting for waterfowl then you know the wave of feelings, both physical and emotional, experienced in a successful morning flight. Duck hunting totally captivates me, it draws me in, and causes me to sacrifice money and sleep. These feelings make it seem like a good idea to wake up hours before the sun to go break ice on a pond, and stand in freezing water on days when the temperatures are subzero. Hunting offers close up experiences with wildlife and nature otherwise not found. You are fully awake and aware while the world rises around you. It gives you the chance to communicate and interact with animals through the use of a duck call. I have a deep appreciation for these animals; their speed, intelligence, and beauty. Duck hunting has played a huge role in my life through my college career here at CSU. So much so


that my brother in law, Connor, my “cousin in law”, Parker, and myself have started a business based on Colorado public land hunting and fishing called the Colorado Good Ol’ Boys. Many do not realize the privilege we have of being able to go out on public land and harvest renewable resources. The model that the United States uses to manage our wildlife populations and lands gives us the best of both worlds, where we get to enjoy and take part in what the land has to offer while stewarding the land and its inhabitants responsibly. One of our goals as a company is to unite not only all kinds of hunters and anglers, but also many other hobbies and sub-cultures rooted in the outdoors; mountain bikers, climbers, kayakers, skiers and snowboarders, backpackers, day hikers, you name it. If it is an activity that is enjoyed on public lands then we want people to be apart of the Colorado Good Ol’ Boy community. While our hobbies rely on the same land, there can be much division between outdoor enthusiasts. The fly fisherman who turns up his nose at the bait fishermen, the big game hunter who

Ducks Unlimited is the world’s leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation. DU got its start in 1937 during the Dust Bowl when North America’s drought-plagued waterfowl populations had plunged to unprecedented lows. Determined not to sit idly by as the continent’s waterfowl dwindled beyond recovery, a small group of sportsmen joined together to form an organization that became known as Ducks

When true passion for the outdoors meets human being, Donnie Vincent should come to mind. Whether he’s fly fishing Alaska or Patagonia, to bowhunting in British Columbia, Vincent is there in heart and mind. But what would an accomplished outdoorsman be without his gear? Otter Shop, who offers plenty of gear to keep your hunt trip on the right path, got a chance to interview Vincent about his hunting expertise. Here is what he had to say:


considers his craft more worthy than the small game hunter, or the free climber who considers himself a purist in comparison to the aid climber. These examples are each within their own scope. The issue of division grows even more if we were to take a look at the perceptions across outdoor subculture lines. This division is detrimental to the outdoors community and should not be encouraged. As a company that takes part in many of the outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer, we have found that most individuals who have a passion for an activity in the outdoors also have or develop a passion for the lands that they recreate on. It is our responsibility as Colorado outdoor enthusiasts to protect and maintain our public lands. Duck season is in full swing right now so we would like to leave you with a few tips and some advice: SAFETY TIP: Allow one another to express when someone is being unsafe or making them feel uncomfortable. A lot can happen fast in the excitement of passing ducks so be aware of the people in your

group and where others may be also hunting or doing other activities on the land around you. C.G.O.B. HUNTING TIP: Always surround yourself with hunters that are better than you. On the more concrete side, as the season goes on into late season put out less and less decoys. We have found this can help with birds that have become gun-shy in the later season.

OTTER SHOP: What type of hunting do you do? DONNIE VINCENT: I hunt a variety of ways, for almost every legal species found in North America, and sometimes around the world. OS: How often do you hunt? DV: I hunt nearly year round. August and September lend themselves well to trekking and hunting in the mountains and/or across the Arctic. October is perfect for pheasants, grouse and ducks, and November is king for the whitetail deer. December is great for late season hunting of any variety, birds or deer. Fast forward to the spring and I find myself chasing big tom turkeys in the warm green meadows and hardwoods of the Midwest. Summers find me kayaking deep into the Canadian wilderness to find fish. Of course variety is the spice of life and I find much of it with bow in hand while traveling the world. I live for it.

WE HUNT, THEREFORE WE ARE HERSHALL WALKER The blazing days of a long summer have come and gone, the air is getting colder and the leaves are fading to rust. Football is back on T.V., pumpkin spice lattes are here, and the fall semester is underway. There is no denying that autumn is a special time of year for many reasons. Sportsmen and women across the country are digging up their backcountry gear out of the closet, in preparation to take to the woods. Long ago a connection between human and nature was made, without the concrete jungles and without a phone screen blocking our vision Those who take to the woods seek something other than artificial happiness materialistic objects bring, they seek the freedom and release found in


nature. Much of our youth struggles with the question of where they belong and how it all works. The simplicity, the tests and the adrenaline rush in nature are why people are drawn to it. Those who throw themselves in to it find the true meaning of being alive. Sadly much of the fire within us has died out and has landed us on the couch. Get out and challenge yourself, the human body is a powerhouse, but be humble because nature will put you on your ass. Certainly we can enjoy eating six-dollar cheeseburgers from McDonald’s, but when we head to the wild places left on this planet unscathed by human impact and development, we feel alive. Hunting builds a respect for the animals that feed us and the meal becomes much more meaningful. Hunters form a bond with

nature like no other harnessing the resources provided. It can be a harsh sport withstanding days, weeks, sometimes months of nature’s relentless and unforgiving exposure. I seek out that connection in nature, to feel one with the water while kayaking, or rising up for a hike in the area, but nothing compares to when I take to the field in pursuit of wild game. It transcends the emotional connection, and is supplemented by a physical connection. After long days spent climbing over rocks, hiking miles upon miles and sleeping in the rain, every sportsman and woman hope to come out with a hearty reward. With this and the killing of an animal comes a great sense of responsibility and gratitude. It feeds not only our bodies, but our souls with an undeniable sense of being, belonging, and truth. The truth of why and what One of the many successful club teams that we have on campus is the Shotgun Sports Team. They rank in the the best in the nation placing top five the last two years. They encourage both men and women who have interest to stop by their meetings every Wednesday at 7pm in the Military Sciences Building, and want students to know that there is no deadline for signing up with the club. According to Connor Nikkola, club president, the best way to contact them and stay up to date is on their Facebook page. Here is a short bio provided by the CSU Campus Rec website: “The Colorado State University

we are. Helping us to understand our place, and ensuring an appreciation for life. It is easy to dismiss the essentials that life needs in order to continue, the cost of being alive and a hunter gives you a great appreciation for life and the outdoors. Only when we go out to experience nature will we understand and love the natural world around us and seek to protect and sustain it for future

generations to enjoy. So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and drink from the fresh high-country streams, sleep amongst the trees, and if you’re lucky, eat those beautiful wild grass-fed beasts that roam the savage places left pristine and free from the costly impacts of our modern lives. Whether you fill your tag or not, maybe you will find what you are looking for.

Providing great bait and service since 1972 210N. US Hwy 287 | Fort Collins (970)-493-FISH (CSU) Shotgun Sports Team is a competitive shotgun shooting team for both men and women. The club begins in early fall and shoots continuously all year, shooting against many other colleges throughout the Midwest. This club provides students with an opportunity to engage in various shotgun shooting events while at the same time learning how to properly handle a firearm. Currently there are approximately 20 active competitors on the team, ranging from all sorts of skill levels. In April the team participates in the ACUI National competition that is usually held in San Antonio, Texas. CSU consistently ranks in the top 10 nationally in several areas of competition.

As a sport club, the team receives a limited annual budget from student fee allocations and generates most of their operating budget from dues and other fundraising activities. Competitions usually range from shooting 400800 targets over the course of a weekend. To prepare for these events, members usually practice at Great Guns Sporting in their free time, usually on the weekends. Collegiate shooting represents a small community of students gathering together to share a common interest. Through participating in this club you will make many friends while keeping a competitive edge out on the course.”

Fort Collins astrologist offers insight to star signs and their flaws By Elena Waldman @WaldmanElena

For years, significant character flaws were mistakenly attributed to a lack of parental discipline, poor genetics or an inflated ego. Though this may be true according to ‘science,’ someone’s astrological sign can also play a significant role in determining their personality. Astrology expert and Fort Collins resident Sarah Klein, who works as an astrological counselor at Open Mind Holistics, said that people can use astrology to understand themselves through a unique and meaningful lens.  “A lot of emotions, thoughts and insights come up for clients in response to astrology readings, so I find it very helpful to bring in a therapeutic lens and to create safety within the relationship between the astrologer and client.”  Klein said. Every star sign has its own stereotypes that range in accuracy. Klein said that stereotypes about different star signs can be useful to understand astrology on a basic level, but they do not capture the nuances of human behavior.  “These stereotypes are used to help us remember the gist of a sign,” Klein said. “However, like all stereotypes, they are limited to only considering a narrow perspective. Stereotypes, I think, can be harmful because they don’t account for the intricacies and depth of each individual’s sign, and they also deny the complexity of the people they describe.”  Here is a list of the faults of each star sign to look out for: Aries For the Aries, courage and confidence are defining qualities. However, their relentless strength will also make them statistically more likely to commit arson. Taurus The Taurus is reliable and stable, making them exceptional individuals to vent to or share secrets with. People shouldn’t be too quick to trust them, though. Once Mercury is in retrograde, they are uncontrollable and will spill everyone’s secrets. Gemini Geminis, well-known patrons of affection and compassion, are great individuals to be friends with. Unfortunately, their protectiveness over friends and family makes them a terrifying enemy. Much like the pivotal scene in Mean Girls, a Gemini will not hesitate to push someone in front of a bus if necessary.

Cancer Cancers are known for being loyal to their friends and loved ones. It’s important to stay on their good side, though, because they change their loyalty relatively easily based on what phase the moon is in. Leo The Leo is commonly believed to be the star sign with the best sense of humor. What is less known is that most of the time they are laughing at other people’s pain. Virgo Calm and intuitive, the Virgo is always listening and seldom speaking. In many ways, these characteristics might be interpreted as being “thoughtful”. This notion is completely false. The real reason Virgos are so quiet is that they are secretly planning someone else’s tragic demise. Libra Libras are passionate and loving, making them exceptional candidates for romantic partners. However, people

shouldn’t be too eager to be romantically involved with a Libra. When it comes to relationships ending poorly, Libras have been known to indirectly trash their ex-lovers on social media.

“Astrology to me is a framework for looking deeper at psychological and spiritual strengths and challenges — it can be a powerful mirror reflecting what is meaningful and what needs shifting in our lives.” SARAH KLEIN ASTROLOGY EXPERT AT OPEN MIND HOLISTICS

Capricorn Diplomatic and goal-oriented, Capricorns are likely to

be incredibly effective team leaders and managers. Not all teams are good, though. Many religious or political cults such as Heaven’s Gate have been led or participated in by Capricorns. Scorpio One one hand, Scorpios celebrate their shared star sign with popular actress and comedian Whoopi Goldberg, highlighting their ambitious and creative characteristics. On the other hand, they also share the same star sign as infamous criminal and murderer Charles Manson. Sagittarius The Sagittarius is optimistic and easily adapts to new environments and situations. Sound familiar? Yeah. Snakes are also highly adaptive, making the Sagittarius related to one of the most deadly and evil animals on earth. Aquarius Fairness and generosity are important qualities to the Aquarius unless it comes to sharing their food. Do not

attempt to grab a slice of an Aquarius’ pizza; they will cut off your hand with little to no hesitation. Pisces Emotional and trusting, a Pisces is usually the type of person who will do anything for a friend or a partner. Consequently, they will completely shun anyone who forgets their birthday or anniversary. No matter what someone’s star sign is, it’s important for them to remember everyone is terrible in their own way. Those who may be disheartened by their own negative traits should remember the good news: as long as the moon has complete control of people’s actions and behaviors, nobody needs to hold themselves accountable for anything they do.

Afroman smokes up at 6th annual Cannabis Culture Carnival By Henry Netherland @NetherlandHenry

It was nothing but fun and 420 at the Cannabis Culture Carnival this past Sunday. The Joint Smoke Shop hosted their annual carnival to celebrate 6 years of business with several food trucks, marijuana-themed carnival games, a glass blowing competition and a concert performed by rapper and musician Afroman. 

“We’re in a very art prevalent community. It’s really cool to bring (the artists) all together. It’s really cool to see just the average person interact with these artists so that they can see and recognize that there is a lot of people who live a life of passion and still pay their bills.” MORGAN LINDSKOG OWNS THE JOINT SMOKE SHOP

In addition to the several activities, the carnival also provided local artists a space to gain exposure and potentially sell their work. Owner of The Joint Morgan Lindskog said this was her personal favorite aspect of the event. Megan Blanco, who was volunteering at a tie-dye t-shirt sta-

tion, said she was glad the carnival was hosting such interactive activities. “It was really fun [volunteering],” Blanco said. “Mostly we got a bunch of ladies and a bunch of small kids coming with their parents. They had a lot of fun getting to make something on their own.” Despite the event being almost entirely centered on marijuana, guests of all ages were welcome. The only restricted area was the line of carnival games where guests had to be over the age of 18. Building up to the Afroman show was a glass blowing competition where competitors had the opportunity to win $1,200.   Space Glass sponsored the competition, and owner Elizabeth Gosnell said both companies came together for the carnival because they have had a history of collaborating in the past. “We do a lot of business with Morgan at The Joint,” Gosnell said. “We love to sponsor all of her events as a collaboration of business that we do together.” Afroman performed his hourlong set, chalice in one hand, blunt in the other. Of course, he ran through his portfolio of hilarious 420 anthems including “Crazy Rap” and “Because I Got High.” Opening for him were rappers Sesugh Solomon and Big Buzz. Preparation for the event took months according to Lindskog. Much of the time was spent collaborating with sponsors and building some of the games by hand. Henry Netherland can be reached at

Five albums you may have missed over the summer By Mikael Wood Los Angeles Times

Fall may officially be a few weeks away, but with Labor Day behind us, summer feels all but finished. That said, here are five albums you may have missed in a season when it could be hard to hear anyone not named Drake or Ariana Grande. Jake Shears ‘Jake Shears’ (Freida Jean) A newly minted Broadway star thanks to his recent turn in the Tony-winning “Kinky Boots,” the frontman of New York’s Scissor Sisters nails his latest role as a hedonistic rock god on this solo debut full of scuzzy guitars and stomping

grooves. But there’s an unexpected earnestness to tunes like “Big Bushy Mustache” that suggests Shears isn’t merely goofing on a wild look; he brings real emotion to the act of dressup, just like David Bowie and Prince before him. Various Artists, ‘King of the Road: A Tribute to Roger Miller’ (BMG) Country stars young and old — from Kacey Musgraves and Lennon & Maisy to Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn — crowd this double-disc set to honor the late Nashville songwriter best known for the oft-covered “King of the Road.” (Some non-country types show up too, including Ringo Starr and, uh, Toad the Wet Sprocket.) If anybody was worried about being

To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. ARIES (March 21-April 19)

— 8 — Learn new tricks from your partner. Support each other through challenges. Creative change is possible. Get expert advice, and then do the work together. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — 7 — Shake up your health and work routines with some fun action. Love could interrupt your fitness or business practices. Give in to your heart. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — 8 — Romance takes priority over chores. Give in to a mutual attraction. Enjoy a moment of bliss even as chaos swirls. Home delights cradle your family.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — 9 — Grow your personal capacities by taking charge of a passion project. Follow plans and dreams long considered. Pace yourself. You’ve got this. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — 6 — Reconsider assumptions or preconceptions. Learn about fun, happiness and satisfaction from friends and colleagues.

Talk is cheap; inspire others to act through your own efforts. Your work is gaining respect. Friends are there for you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — 8 — You’re becoming an expert. Things may not go as planned. Watch for professional opportunities hidden in changing circumstances. Your status is on the rise. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — 8 — Discover new views and perspectives. Plan your route to avoid traffic. Budget for efficient use of time and funds. Study and explore fresh concepts and ideas. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) — 8 — Collaborate for shared gain. Support your partner with patience and a sense of humor. Offer or ask for help with a tough project. Clean up after.

overshadowed, though, you can hardly tell: What distinguishes the project is the care each act takes to respectfully showcase Miller’s top-shelf wordplay. The result is the rare tribute album with class to spare. Peabo Bryson ‘Stand for Love’ (Perspective) The veteran R&B singer is still in fine voice on his 21st studio album _ as fine, more or less, as in the pair of Disney hits (“Beauty and the Beast” and “A Whole New World”) that vastly expanded his renown a quarter-century ago. But the polished and funky “Stand for Love” is also recommended to followers of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the genre-defining duo who produced the re-

cord with their usual attention to detail _ and took the project seriously enough to relaunch their Perspective Records label to put it out. Dirty Projectors, ‘Lamp Lit Prose’ (Domino) Following his high-profile collaborations with Kanye West and Solange, Dave Longstreth’s brainy art-rock group was poised to cross over from the indie world to something like the pop scene with last year’s self-titled “Dirty Projectors.” Only that didn’t quite happen. So instead of storming the Top 40, Longstreth re-embraced his quirks for this thorny but tuneful helping of avant-garde bubblegum. James Williamson and the Pink

Hearts, ‘Behind the Shade’ (Leopard Lady) Williamson is best remembered as a member of the Stooges, the seminal proto-punk band with whom he made 1973’s “Raw Power” before quitting music to become a tech exec. And at points this debut by the guitarist’s new band certainly echoes the earlier group’s famously chaotic energy. But thanks in part to the presence of Petra Haden — familiar to L.A. music fans from her days in That Dog and the Haden Triplets — “Behind the Shade” strikes a yearning rootsrock chord as well. Punks have feelings too, you know. Content pulled from Tribune News Service.
