County, towns negotiate Vail Ditch shares T ONYA BINA

Grand County and local towns and water districts are negotiating the purchase of more Vail Ditch shares in the interest of keeping West Slope water on the Western Slope. The Grand County Mutual Ditch and Reservoir Company — made up primarily of partners Grand County, the towns of Winter Park and Granby, and the districts Winter Park West Water and Sanitation District and the Grand County Water and Sanitation No. 1 — are in dealings to purchase about 125 shares to bring Company holdings up to about 30 percent of shares, according to the Ditch and Reservoir Company’s president Bruce Hutchins. The town of Granby and Grand County boards recently agreed to spend about $87,000 each for the shares, with equal expenditures from the other partners still pending. The Colorado River District is also part of the Company as a lesser shareholder. The shares are being sold by private landowners and individuals within the Grand County Irrigated Land Company, which historically has had access to 850 acre-feet of senior Vail Ditch water from Meadow Creek and Strawberry Creek, stored in Meadow Creek Reservoir for irrigating ranchlands. The reservoir is located at the

northernmost extension of the collection system used to convey water through Denver Water’s Moffat Tunnel. The partners’ pending augmentation of Vail Ditch shares will rely on agreements with Denver Water for use of its system to deliver water to the upper Fraser River when needed, and agreements with the many Grand County Irrigated Land Company shareholders, such as Morales Farms and Legacy Ranch. According to Hutchins, purchase of the shares preserves how the water is being used today, which is mainly for growing hay, vegetables and for irrigating pastures. The partners would likely lease the shares back to their original owners, he said. “As they come up for sale, we feel it’s better to keep them than to let them possibly go to the East

Slope,” he said. The Vail Ditch was originally built to supply water to the Granby-area mesa for the Great Western Head Lettuce Co. The Vail Ditch Company formed in 1911 when the water right was filed. Partners with interest in benefiting streamflows for river health and human use from Winter Park on downstream formed The Grand County Mutual Ditch and Reservoir Company in 2005 as a means to purchase shares. In 2008, the Company purchased 85.5 shares using a $1.5 million state matching grant from the Colorado Water Conservation Board through the Colorado River Basin Roundtable. “There are not a lot of buckets in the Fraser Valley to hold the water when we need it,” said Grand County Manager Lurline Underbrink Curran. “Our ability to have Vail Ditch shares could enhance the Fraser River in its most-needed times.”

The Town of Granby has tweaked its code to prohibit carrying a gun in plain sight into Town Hall. The law was sparked by a recent episode, during which a former trustee candidate addressing the town board at the podium inside the meeting room of Town Hall had to pick up his semi-automatic pistol after it had dropped from his waistband to the floor. The fact it had been a handgun that fell did not go over well with trustees, who sat as a panel facing the podium. Although Granby Mayor Jynnifer Pierro had been absent from that meeting, in light of recent news — particularly what happened to Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords — she said she felt the need for “some sort of protection for the people that are at Town Hall. Town Hall should feel safer,� she said. A few gun rights advocates attended the ensuing June 28 Granby town board meeting about the topic. Those with concealed carry permits, such as Ed Magee of Granby who dropped his gun at the podium, must pass background checks and undergo training, said Rich Dowell, a concealed weapons class instructor. “It’s not the ones with concealed carry permits you have to worry about,� Dowell said. “It’s the ones who are already lawbreakers.� For residents who have a permit to carry a concealed handgun, carrying such a gun in a public place is mostly a protected right in Colorado, save for restrictions at schools and public buildings where there are security checkpoints, such as the Grand County Courthouse. Granby trustees learned the only option for otherwise prohibiting the carrying of firearms on public property is in Colorado’s open carry laws. By posting notice at Town Hall, the board now forbids the public from carrying guns in plain sight into the building. The board pondered, but in the end rejected, laws on open carry of guns in other public places, such as parks, trails and open spaces, primarily due to the prevalence of wild animals in the Granby area. “It was just an unfortunate encounter with gravity,� Magee said days after the episode. Magee said he had not intended for the gun to be exposed or for it to be in any way intimidating.

Boettcher Foundation recognizes teacher of Middle Park High Katy Craig, director of the scholarship program at the Boettcher Foundation, is pleased to announce that John Reynolds from Middle Park High School was recognized, Aug. 7, at the 2011 Boettcher Foundation Teacher Recognition Awards Program. The Teacher Recognition Awards Program was created by the Trustees of the Boettcher Foundation in 1992 to provide an opportunity for Boettcher Scholars to extend their gratitude to the counselors, principals, superintendents and, in particular, teachers who have dedicated themselves to providing the youth of Colorado with an outstanding education. The 2011 Boettcher Scholar, Samuel Kerber, nominated Reynolds as a teacher who made a significant contribution to his growth and education and impacted his life. In addition to a plaque, the recipients of the Teacher Recognition Award receive a $1,000 grant, which they may use toward a special program or project at their school. The trustees of the Boettcher Foundation are Larry A. Allen, M.D., Pamela Beardsley, Paul H. Chan, M. Ann Penny, Theodore F. Schlegel M. D., Edward D. White III and Thomas Williams.

Grand County’s National Public Lands Day, Sept. 24, offers an opportunity to give back to the places where we play. COURTESY PHOTO

Give back to trails, rivers you love SPECIAL TO THE SKY-HI NEWS National Public Lands Day, Sept. 24, is a coast-to-coast, one-day event that brings more than 100,000 Americans together to collect trash, pull weeds, plant trees, construct trails and build bridges over wetlands. Grand County's National Public Lands Day is in a class by itself. It is not only the largest NPLD event in Colorado, Grand County's event draws more participants and results in the largest amount of work completed of any NPLD event in the country. In its 17th year, it is the longest continuous running NPLD event in the country. Grand County's NPLD is so successful each year because of the many businesses and government entities that take part: SolVista and Winter Park ski areas, local restaurants, BLM, U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, Headwater Trails Alliance (HTA), Arapaho Roosevelt Pawnee Foundation, YMCA of the Rockies, the towns of Granby, Fraser, Winter Park and Grand Lake, Grand County and Channel 17 TV. Each project is geared to certain types of outdoor enthusiasts, including motorized vehicle users, mountain bikers, anglers and hikers. Yo u d o n ' t

have to be a super athlete/adventurer type to take part in NPLD. There are easier jobs for older folks and kids or for those who are not in shape. Help stuff goody bags, pick up food donations, work registration or help with meals and the volunteer appreciation party. Sign up ahead of time or just show up at 7 a.m. on Sept. 24 at YMCA/Snow Mountain Ranch's Nordic Center in Granby and sign up for the project of your choice on the morning of the event. Buses leave at 7:45 a.m., so set your alarm clock to be there in time to eat a relaxed breakfast and assemble a hearty lunch for the trail. Enjoy a couple cups of coffee while meeting new people and connecting with old friends. Then board the bus or van of your chosen project for an autumn day in the wilderness working alongside other outdoor lovers building new trails, maintaining trails that need erosion upkeep, constructing buck-n-rail fencing to protect fragile ecosystems, collecting garbage along the Colorado River or planting trees to replace lodgepole pines that have s u c -

cumbed to pine beetle infestation. The projects offered for NPLD 2011 include: erosion-control work on the Flume Trail in Fraser, sponsored by HTA; planting 200, two-foot-tall lodgepole pine saplings at Stillwater Campground in Grand Lake, sponsored by the U.S. Forest service; a Colorado River trash pickup or trail work on Hurd Peak in Tabernash, sponsored by BLM; trail work on the motorized Blizzard Pass Trail in Grand Lake, sponsored by the Forest Service; and trail work on Rocky Mountain National Park's Bowen Gulch Connector Trail, part of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, sponsored by the National Park Service. At the end of the day, all of the volunteers meet back at Camp Chief Ouray for pizza and a delicious lasagna dinner complete with dessert and live music. Save your raffle ticket, because you could win incredible prizes like rounds of golf, ski tickets and outdoor gear. Everyone who contributes to the success of Grand County's NPLD gets a raffle ticket For more information, stop by the U.S. Forest Service office in Granby or call 970-8874120.

COMMENTARY An interesting morning at the courthouse I

was recently called as a potential juror in a criminal court of law. As an introduction to the processes of jury selection and courtroom proceedings, our presiding judge treated us to a most eloquent reminder of the importance of serving as jurors. He reminded us that until the Declaration of Independence and the passage of the U.S. Constitution, power flowed from the government to the people, as in England, the superpower of the day. To paraphrase the judge, “Who would have thought then that there could be a system where power flowed from the people to the government? In our country after the Revolution, it is indeed the people who grant power to the government.� He went on to read Lincoln's short speech, reminding us of government for the people and by the people. “This (courtroom) is the people's house,� the judge concluded. After we swore an oath to tell the truth, we were asked a number of questions to ensure that we would not be hindered or biased in any way as we heard the case. A number of jurors were excused, one of whom was the defendant's neighbor who stated that the defendant “is a very good neighbor.� Another was dismissed because the defendant frequents his store. After a time, the assistant district attorney asked a rhetorical question of us, and went to each of us for our individual answers. We were asked, in effect, “What are your thoughts

about a law that is broken, and there is no resulting ELENA CAMPBELL injur y, like GRAND COUNTY not carrying a driver's license?� Most answered something to the effect that laws are there to protect the public and that they must be followed. My answer got me summarily dismissed as a potential juror. To paraphrase, I answered, “Any civil society needs laws to protect our persons and our property. Unfortunately, there are a bunch of bogus laws on the books that are unconstitutional and have little to do with our protection. The judge reminded us early on of the importance of our service as jurors. When we view a law as bad, it is our civic duty, all of us unanimously, to make that determination during deliberation.� I was wrong in my statement on one count, and didn't make myself clear on another. First, such determination doesn't have to be unanimous. One individual acting alone in good faith and conscience can “hang� a jury. On the second count, I was unclear by implying that the jury's actions would “nullify� a law. Only Congress can do that (state legislators, for example, can declare a federal law unconstitutional and therefore, null and void.) However, in an individual, particular court case for which an individual is part of a jury, a law can most certainly, in essence, be nullified for just that particular

court case, with a verdict of “not guilty.� Horrors! What's this? Jury Lawlessness? Let's review some history and some of the views expressed by our Founders and notable others who tried to ensure that power would rightfully flow from the people to the government, with the people's consent. In 1670, William Penn was on trial for most decidedly breaking a law. The law at the time was that the Church of England was to be the only lawful church. Penn was a Quaker. Four jurors held out with a finding of “not guilty.� (These four were kept in grotesque conditions while jailed.) The people of our little fledgling nation went on from that pivotal court case to enjoy freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and freedom to peacefully assemble. We can thank those four jurors for the state of Pennsylvania, Independence Hall, and the Liberty Bell. In discussing the Constitution, Alexander Hamilton stated, “The friends and adversaries of the plan (the Constitution) concur at least in the value they set upon the trial by jury. ... The former

regard it as a valuable safeguard to liberty; the latter represent it as the very palladium of free government.� Chief Justice Parsons of Massachusetts stated, “... only his own fellow citizens can convict him; they are his jury, and if they pronounce him innocent, not all the powers of Congress can hurt him; and innocent they certainly will pronounce him, if the supp o s e d l aw h e resisted was an act of usurpation (removing government power.)� Patrick Henry witnessed a minister being whipped to death. His crime? The m i n i s t e r refused to take a license. The license turned this minister's natural right into a privilege granted by the power of the state. Patrick Henry responded with his famous speech, “I know not what course others may take, but as for me, Give me Liberty or Give me Death.� Lysander Spooner stated, “The trial by jury is the only institution that gives the weaker party any v e t o u p o n t h e p ow e r o f t h e stronger. Consequently, it is the only institution that gives them any effective voice in the government or any guarantee against

ous donations of food and discounts. Thank you Coors family for designating the proceeds of your moving sale to us. Thank you to those who celebrated birthdays and asked people to give to us in lieu of gifts. Thank you to all who supported the Christmas in July brunch. You filled almost 2 SUVs full of food and donated $17,000 and still counting. And last but not least – a very, very BIG thank you Grand Lake Golf clubs and Grand Lake Golf course. They hosted a week long f o o d

drive and golf day for us and worked hard to make it a most successful event collecting almost 2,000 items and $2,000. Because of the generosity of all of you, we’ll be able to continue feeding and extending a hand up to neighbors in need. The circle never ends. We give and help and those that are given to and helped give and help when they are back on their feet. If you are interested in donating and/or volunteering, give us a call at 970-627-3510, extension 315.


When you next have an opportunity to serve as a juror for one of your peers, do remember the original intent of having a jury by peers. You are the very palladium of free government.

oppression.â€? In the very first jury trial of the Supreme Court (State of Georgia vs Brailesford) the importance of the jury was well understood: (â€œâ€Ś it is presumed that juries are the best judges of the facts; it is, on the other hand, presumed that the courts are the best judges of the law. But still, both objects are within the power of your decision. You have a right to take upon yourself to judge both, and to judge the law as well as the fact in controversy.â€? In the 1972 US vs Doughtery case (473 F 2nd 1113, 1139) we were told that, “Jury Lawlessness is the greatest corrective of law in its actual administration. The will of the State at large imposed on a reluctant community, the will of a majority imposed on a vigorous and determined minority, find the same obstacle in the local jury that formerly confronted kings and ministers.â€? And from Abraham Lincoln: “The people are the masters of both Congress and Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it.â€? When you next have an opportunity to serve as a juror for one of your peers, do remember the original intent of having a jury by peers. You are the very palladium of free government. You are the valuable safeguard to liberty. I only wish I had been invited to hear the case. I would have been there, first and foremost, as a palladium of We the People, fully cognizant of the value of laws that protect the common good.

THANK YOU LETTER Merry Christmas in July

The TCP Food Bank and Angels Outreach all volunteer team would like to thank our Grand County neighbors for coming to our “rescueâ€? in July and helping make it truly an exceptional Christmas in July. It’s been an extremely tough year for many of our neighbors.

Zen blend: art and exercise

Grand County Transactions Aug. 14-20, 2011


n Wednesday morning Elizabeth Kurtak ran five miles, practiced yoga, and then got started on her art: painting flowers, butterflies, and birds. Her flower and bird watercolors are so distinctive that once you see her work, you will recognize it throughout Grand County. “I'm happy and have opened my gallery again,� she says. And, her art is selling. Her pieces are being sold in her galler y on Eisenhower Drive in Fraser and in Winter Park locations s u c h a s W P KRISTEN LODGE Framewerx . Despite the economy, Elizabeth says locals and visitors are spending money on art. What does she attribute it to? “People want to buy something meaningful and are striving for positive things, not material objects. I hope it keeps going.� Her best year selling her paintings was in 2007. This year she is surpassing revenue from 2007. After closing her gallery for a year, in February 2011 she decided to re-open it and start making art again. She says she has never been happier. Elizabeth has lived in Grand County for most of her life and is married to Andrew Petersen. She received a bachelor's in fine arts from Western State College. She and her husband have landscaped the gallery's yard into an artist dreamscape with hundreds of flowers, a fit pit, a ski fence, and a patio with chairs, table and ski roof. She spends half of her time outside drawing a n d half i n

On the web ➤ Elizabeth Kurtak Art Gallery, her studio. Her yard and house are works of art and inspire creativity just being in them. I ask her how she picks her subject matter. “I just let myself be interested in something enough to fall in love with it. In my studio I refer to past work, photos, real objects, or just draw from memory. I do prefer studio because I am comfortable; no bugs, wind, or sun in my eyes. I get lost in the art because I am not distracted, and not racing to capture colors before the light changes.� Elizabeth practices plein air, but knows that it requires motivation and planning; things n o t

always readily available. “Spontaneity is usually the best part of a plein air piece. For me, it is essential to do studio and plein air.� Her creative process includes a morning run. “When I run I often start out thinking about negative things that bother me. Mean things people have said to me or things I've said that may have hurt others. Guilt and anger stuff. “Then, I run past these thoughts, and look at the trail and my dog's happy wiggling butt. On a good run I can feel myself open up and become a part of the world. I am a lady running through the mountains and flowers with my dog, and it is effortless and I feel like I'm dancing. I remember that I am loved and trying my best in this life. I feel forgiveness and love for myself and others, and everything looks amazing and beautiful.� She admits that not every run is like that, but it is what keeps her going and helps focus on her art. As for the future, Elizabeth is finishing a children's book with her art and the story from a writer who is a fan of her art; she is self-publishing it. This winter, she plans to ski and paint.

CAN’T GET THERE FROM HERE Some damaged forest roads will remain barricaded for early hunting seasons SPECIAL TO THE SKY-HI NEWS Courtesy of U.S. Forest Service

GRANBY — A large snowpack followed by high runoff this spring left numerous U.S. Forest Service roads severely damaged this season, and due to the extent of the problems and lack of available funds, some roads will remain closed until repairs can be implemented. The district is actively seeking funding for needed repairs. While many of these

roads have been closed to the public since the damage occurred, Forest Service personnel are assessing opportunities to place barricades closer the point of damage to allow hunters greater access into some of the region's most coveted hunting areas. Wherever possible, barricades will be placed at the turnaround nearest to the point of damage.

Hunters and other visitors to the Sulphur Ranger District should watch for temporary signage posted along damaged routes.

Road Damage Summary Stillwater • 123 (Stillwater Pass) - Washout on north side of road at junction with the Vagabond Ranch access road (123.4A).
