History in the making Water agreement touted as game-changer for Colorado water management TONYA BINA tbina@skyhidailynews.com

T

he culmination of several years of negotiations on water protections for the Western Slope took place on Tuesday at the Grand County Administration Building during an official signing of the Colorado River Cooperative Agreement. The signing took place more than one year after Colorado’s Gov. John Hickenlooper last visited Grand County, when he first rolled out the Colorado Cooperative Agreement, deemed an unprecedented water agreement for our time. The agreement aims to settle years of East and West Slope water disputes. “I’m not sure the fighting’s ever going to completely stop,” Hickenlooper said, “but it is nice to see we are at least moving into rubber bullets and beanbag shot guns rather than the high-velocity weapons we were using before.” “We’re saying by this agreement that there’s a better way of doing business,” said Denver Water Commissioner Penfield Tate. “We ended a bunch of lawsuits and decided to cooperate and that’s important from my perspective. It’s better to reach an agreeemnt and have certainty rather than spend a whole bunch of time and a whole bunch of other people’s money fighting over things. It doesn’t belong to me, it doesn’t belong to you, it belongs to the planet. We need to have a healthier way of ensuring a more reliable water supply, on both sides of the Divide and for all of our customers.” Since the governor’s roll-out of the agreement last year, water attorneys and water officials have been pounding out implementation strategies for each of the benefits highlighted in the agreement, according to Grand County Manager Lurline Underbrink Curran. “It is hoped by all the signatories to the agreement, including Denver, that we have formed a peace pact for our time,” Underbrink Curran said last week, “and that we are all going to work together from now and into the future to make sure that all the things that each entity was promised happens, and that the protections Grand County was promised happen.” Denver Water’s Moffat Firming Project and its goal to enlarge Gross Reservoir to

Clinton Ditch & Reservoir Co. President William Baum, from left to right, Summit County Commissioner Dan Gibbs, Denver Water Board Chairman Greg Austin and Grand County Commissioner Nancy Stuart sign the Colorado River Cooperative Agreement at the Grand County Administration Building on Tuesday in Hot Sulphur Springs. In addition to today’s signatories, the agreement already has been signed by Eagle County, Eagle River Water & Sanitation District, Upper Eagle Regional Water Authority and Eagle Park Reservoir Co. Additional West Slope entities are expected to sign in the near future. BYRON HETZLER/SKY-HI NEWS divert more water from the West Slope, plus its 2006 diligence application in federal court regarding water rights under the Blue River decree, sparked negotiations in an arena when litigation and political disputes between Colorado’s West and East Slopes were ripe with potential. A mediator was hired in 2007 under then-Denver Mayor Hickenlooper’s advisement, and as many as 35 parties from the Front Range to the western state line joined in to try and resolve some of the state’s longeststanding water issues. The result is a 50-page document, plus pages upon pages of legal attachments, that spells out water resolutions or “enhancements” for the Fraser and Blue

rivers, certain tributaries and the upper and middle rivers of the Colorado River to the Grand Valley.

A hole in the river In his address about the Colorado Cooperative Agreement, Hickenlooper nodded to the “mother of all compacts 90 years earlier,” the Colorado River Compact signed in 1922. Population and temperature increases and greater uses of the river have put a strain on the state’s resources, he said, pointing out that 80 percent of moisture falls west of the Continental Divide, while 80 percent of the consumption is east of the Continental Divide.

With this in mind, the cooperative agreement and its “Learning by Doing” comes at a key time. “Like a muscle, once you start using it, it can only get stronger,” Hickenlooper said. “It’s important to do a deal like this, because water is something none of us know how to make any more of,” Tate said. “So the best we can do is manage the resource that has been given to us by other sources to make sure it’s available to everyone in the state, not just those of us in Denver.” Besides $11 million in Denver Water dollars promised to address some river issues specifically in Grand County, with || AGREEMENT, PAGE 2 ➤ ||

Fire heavily damages Winter Park Ranch home KRISTEN LODGE klodge@skyhidailynews.com

A home on County Road 8350, known as Rainbow Lane, in Winter Park Ranch sustained heavy damage from a fire Saturday, May 12. The cause of the blaze is under investigation. One firefighter was taken to the emergency room as a precaution after he

hyperventilated, said Todd Holzwarth, East Grand Fire fire chief. Smoke may have been visible earlier in the area, but the first report didn’t come in until 10:30 a.m. from a passerby, he said. First on the scene was Fraser-Winter Park Police officer Dodd Jacobsen, who confirmed the house was on fire.

more dollars for Summit and Eagle counties, the agreement highlights the importance of the Shoshone Power Plant to the entire Western Slope. The plant, which has been around since 1902, “puts a demand on the stream,� according to Eric Kuhn, executive director of the Colorado River District, during an annual State of the River meeting last week. “When it puts a demand on the stream, water is released from Wolford to Green Mountain and from Williams Fork (reservoirs). All that water reaches Kremmling and runs downstream and provides stability,� he said. “The thing we’ve been concerned about is the 110 year-old plant has started to behave like a 100 year-old plant. We’ve asked, and Denver has agreed ... to operate its system like the plant was operating, so we wouldn’t put a hole in the river. That hole in the river causes problems for irrigators, causes problems for fishing and causes problems for rafting.� An agreement on Denver Water bypass flows on the Fraser River amounting to about 3,000 acre-feet, plus 1,000 acre-feet of water allocated each year for environmental purposes from Denver Water’s Fraser Collection System are big Grand County “gets,� according to county officials. “I believe the county got everything they could get out of this agreement,� Underbrink Curran said last week. “Would we have liked to have had more water? Sure we would have,� she said. “Would we have liked to have had more money? Sure we would. In any negotiations, you always have to be able to give up some things to gain other things.� And how will Grand County see to it promises outlined in the agreement are kept? “This IGA is a contract,� Underbrink Curran said. “Legal action can be taken to enforce the contract if necessary.� “At first we thought we wanted it all in the record of decision (of the Moffat Firming Project permit),� said Grand County Commissioner James Newberry, during last week’s State of the River meeting. “But the more we thought about that, the more we thought we had a better chance of going back into the contract and dealing with the issues we wanted changed rather than reopening the entire federal process. It seemed a more direct and efficient way to approach it.� The Colorado Cooperative Agreement is not a deal until all players have signed. And most of the benefits depend on the permitting of Denver Water’s Moffat Firming Project.

Silent partners With the exception of Grand County, which is a consulting agency on the Moffat Firming Project for the U.S. Corps of Engineers, all signatories of the enhancements document must be silent about Denver Water’s National Environmental Policy Act, or NEPA, process with the Corps. If a permit is issued, then at that point, Grand County has agreed it will no longer object to the permit, according to Underbrink Curran. But until that permit is issued, “We continue to support the comments we made for mitigations,� she said. “We continue to provide any information the Corps has asked for.� Although it commends the collaborative approach to Colorado’s water problems, Colorado Trout Unlimited still cautions West

Provisions related to Grand County ➤ Grand County commitments are in addition to the mitigation plan of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Moffat Firming Project permitting process and are intended to improve current stream conditions in Grand County. ➤ Denver Water will pay $11 million for projects such as nutrient loading, aquatic habitat, Berthoud Pass sediment pond, Windy Gap pumping costs for environmental purposes. ➤ The Learning by Doing concerns flows managed by Denver Water not captured for diversion. Instead, such flows will be used for environmental purposes, as determined by the Learning by Doing group. ➤ Denver Water will make available 1,000 acre-feet of water — water otherwise diverted — each year from its Fraser Collection system for environmental purposes, at times and locations requested by Grand County. This water will be matched with an additional 1,000 acre-feet from Williams Fork Reservoir under specified conditions that also will be released at the county’s request. ➤ Denver Water agrees to provide 375 acre-feet of water from its system for use by municipal water providers and ski areas in Grand County. ➤ Denver water will provide 920 acre-feet of Clinton Bypass Water on a year-round basis, subject to Grand County Water Users providing replacement water. ➤ Denver Water will allow use of its Fraser River Collection system to convey water as a temporary source of supply and will explore possibilities to use its system to benefit Grand County. Denver Water and Grand County also will study how Denver Water’s lands in Grand County may be used for wildlife habitat and public fishing access. ➤ Denver Water will allow the Grand County Mutual Ditch and Reservoir Company to move water acquired by means of the purchase of the Vail Ditch shares through the Fraser River Collection System. ➤ Denver Water will not oppose Colorado Water Conservation Board instream flow filings on the Colorado River below the Blue River and will not oppose a Recreation In-Channel Diversion water right filing on the Colorado River below Gore Canyon. ➤ Denver Water will not undertake any future water development activities without the prior approval of Grand County and the Colorado River District. Slope water stakeholders that additional measures, such as more mitigation listed in the federal record of decision, are needed to protect the Upper Colorado River ecosystem. “The job isn’t finished,� said Mely Whiting, counsel for Trout Unlimited’s Colorado Water Project. “Unless the impacts of these new projects are mitigated, the river habitat will continue to decline, according to the state’s own studies.� Underbrink Curran assures the county is wellinsulated from legal loopholes or future manipulation of the Colorado Cooperative Agreement. During the six years of negotiations, Grand County was represented by legal council, two NEPA specialists, a water engineering firm and

the county attorney, she said. “Has this been vetted for Grand County? Over and over and over,� she said. “There were some of the most high-powered water attorneys and engineers in the state involved in this from day one,� Underbrink Curran said. “To do all that with that many attorneys that are that well-known and respected in the state, without litigation, it’s pretty amazing when it comes right down to it. “At first, it was certainly a turf war,� she continued. “But after awhile, while everyone was still protecting their turf, there was a recognition that we were doing something bigger than ourselves.�

Grand County EMS responded with ambulances and support vehicles. Grand County Sheriff’s deputies and investigators also responded. On arrival the first engine crew hand-laid a 2.5-inch attack hose up the hill and forced entry to the house. Once inside they found the floor gone and the structure in partial col-

lapse. The crew withdrew due to potential collapse hazard. Additional lines were laid, and master streams and hand lines were used to extinguish the fire, according to Holzwarth. East Grand Fire will be assisting the Sheriff’s Office and insurance company investigators in establishing the cause and origin of the fire. The house, which is owned by Mountain Parks Electric board member Ross Caldwell, was not occupied at the time of the fire, Holzwarth said.

Arson ruled out in 2011 Isolation Peak fire SKY-HI NEWS STAFF REPORT GRAND LAKE — The Grand County Sheriff’s Office has determined the Isolation Peak motel fire last year, June 13, 2011, was not a result of arson. “The case has closed as there is no evidence to believe a crime has occurred,” states a May 9 press release from the Sheriff ’s Office regarding a late-afternoon structure fire at the motel owned by John R. Waller and son John E. Waller. Grand Lake Fire declared the fire out that night, but two hours later was called back to the scene to a second fire at the same location. The Sherrif’s Office conclusion is based on Colorado Bureau of Investigation lab results dated May 6 that “did not identify the presence of an ignitable liquid,” despite K9 alerts during CBI’s investigation at the scene. “This does not preclude the possibility that an ignitable liquid was present at an earlier time,” the lab report reads.

tions and lab reports, as stated in his incident report. The investigation determined the first fire likely was caused from combustible

materials located too close to the burner of the water heater, and the second fire was result of “a rekindle of the first fire,” likely in the cellulose insulation of the attic, according to Piechocki Occupants of the motel evacuated at the time of the fire; there were no injuries or deaths related to the fire. The senior John Waller is the owner of another Highway 34 Grand Lake-area structure that burned down a year prior, in June 2010. According to Peichocki’s report, Insurer Thad Scholl told the investigator, “It was very unusual for a client to have two fire claims in a year.” Waller threatened lawsuits against Grand Lake Fire for its failure to protect the warehouse structure, and sent two letters to the fire district board of directors seeking settlement. Grand Lake Fire officials denied liability both times.

Trail Ridge opens third earliest day since 1932 SPECIAL TO THE SKY-HI NEWS Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park opened at 11:05 a.m. Monday, May 14, according to Park officials. Road conditions will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis. The Alpine Visitor Center and the Trail Ridge Store will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians due to heavy snow removal equipment working in the parking area. Restrooms will be open at Rock Cut and Milner Pass. Trail Ridge Road historically opens on Memorial Day weekend; last year, due to historic snow accumulation, the road opened on June 6. This year’s opening will be the third earliest day that Trail Ridge Road has opened since the road was completed in 1932. The earliest day was May 7, 2002. In 1963, the road opened on May 11. Trail Ridge Road is the highest continuous paved road in the United States, climbing to 12,183 feet and connecting the towns of Estes Park and Grand Lake. Because weather conditions may change rapidly, particularly in spring and fall, park visitors should be prepared to adjust travel plans accordingly and are encouraged to call the park’s

OPINION GUEST COLUMNIST

Metal monsters and bye-bye water BY SUZANNE GERHART Grand County Road 41

Western Area Power Authority has released its Environmental Impact Statement and is planning to go forward with the proposed 138-KV, 105-foot tall towers with multiple rows of transmission lines running from the Granby Farr Pumping Plant on Lake Granby to Windy Gap. The proposed overhead towers represent obsolete technology that will mar our beautiful mountains and valleys for the next 8090 years. The idea of taking more water out of the county and erecting unsightly towers to do so at our expense is simply preposterous. This represents “takings” by the government (WAPA) from individuals and the Grand County community. We strongly resent WAPA's tactic of pitting residents against each other with respect to alternatives in a community that has traditionally been very cohesive.

Why do we need so much power and who benefits? WAPA has not demonstrated the need for significantly more power in the 600-plus page report. No data shows the projected growth of the county. Population nearly doubled from 1980 to 2010, but most of that was in the 1990s. Growth was under 20 percent in the last decade and the population actually declined from 2009 to 2010. The closure of Grand Lake Elementary reflects the trend. Section 1.9 of the EIS report states: Front Range water use — The purpose of the project is to maintain and improve electrical power reliability for this portion of Grand County. It would not affect nor be affected by existing or proposed water collection delivery projects that serve the Front Range. This statement is simply disingenuous. The destination of the power lines to the Farr Pumping Plant tells it all. Shadow Mountain Lake and Grand Lake are already polluted with toxic algae; our rivers lack sufficient flow. Global climate change predicts a drier climate, leading to high fire danger. With eventual lower water tables whose well will go dry? What options are acceptable and who pays? The EIS claims that burying the lines or replacing the Adams Tunnel Cable would cost a great deal more than unsightly overhead lines, but the report fails to present any proposals or cost estimates by reputable engineering firms. Expert Harry Orton, Orton Consulting Engineers International Ltd., indicates underground lines are safer, preserve scenic beauty and cost nearly the same as overhead lines over the long term. WAPA estimates it would cost $200 million to bury the lines. Hence, it would cost East Slopers $5 per-person per-year to maintain Grand County's scenic beauty. This calculation is based on a 40 year life expectancy serving one million. However, WAPA admits they do not have the expertise necessary for underground installation or maintenance. The logical option then is to replace the Adams Tunnel Cable: • It already exists and has been a proven source for 65 years. • Trained personnel exist. • It provides a second source of looped power from Estes Park. • “Green Power” is generated. • Environmental issues are eliminated. • Beauty is maintained. • EMF exposure, noise, and electronic interference are eliminated. • The tourism industry provides a strong financial tax base. • Property values remain stable. • Pilots and birds are safer. The Adams Tunnel traverses 13.1 miles under the Continental Divide and Rocky Mountain National Park. It is part of the Colorado-Big Thompson Project. Federal legislation enabling the project clearly placed the burden for building and maintaining the facilities on the project and its successors, namely, the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District. Under those circumstances, shouldn't the District bear the cost of replacing the Adams Tunnel Cable? The May 2012 issue of Colorado Country Life indicates our electric charge will increase 4.8 percent. Denver rates average $.04 per kilowatt hour in winter and $.08 in summer. Are we paying for power to send our water to the East Slope? Let WAPA know tall towers are not OK by the May 19 deadline.

In Indiana, the Tea Party defeated Republican Sen. Dick Lugar for being too liberal. On the eve of a Hollywood fundraiser, polling data showed President Obama losing his grip on the “youth” vote. Miraculously, President Obama’s position on gay marriage “revolved” to support of gay marriage. In 1996, in an Illinois Senate race, President Obama favored gay mar-

CENTRAL VIEW

riage. But in his U.S. Senate race in 2004 and in his 2008 presidential race, President Obama opposed gay marriage. Because the “young” rarely bother to vote, switching to gay marriage might not help President Obama at the polls. Moreover, he has now made gay marriage a hot-button social issue sure to bring out traditionalmarriage independents and conservatives who, previously, were luke-warm toward the protraditional-marriage Mitt Romney. Moreover, many blacks do not favor gay mar r iage and might stay home on Nov. 6, 2012. Seven of the nine major “swing” states — Colorado, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Nevada, and Wisconsin — all prohibit same-sex marriage. Only two “swing states” allow gay marriage: Iowa by a judge’s court order, New Hampshire by legislation. In all, 42 states reject gay marriage: 12 states by legislative action and 30 states by state constitution. In 1996, President Clinton (D) signed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), meaning the federal government does not recognize gay marriage as legal. In Colorado, because the Democrat leadership waited until after the Democratic Party caucuses to introduce a gaymarriage bill (wonder why?), the

Democrats’ bill ran out of time; however, Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) immediately called a special session to tr y to force through gay marriage. While gays claim this is a “civil-rights” issue, traditional-marriage advocates point out that a simple, written contract — legal in all states — can already provide gays with the same “rights” as a marriage license. Last week in South Carolina, gay marriage went down to flaming defeat. In neighboring North Carolina, where the 2012 Democratic National Convention is slated to be held, gay marriage is illegal both by statute and by state constitution. Some gay activists want the Democratic National Convention moved someplace where same-sex marriage is legal, leaving only Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, or Washington, D.C. as possible locations. President Obama’s embrace of gay marriage at the $40,000-perplate Hollywood fundraiser raised $15 million; however, Mr. Romney shot to a seven-point lead in national polls. Moreover, traditional-values voters started pouring money into Mr. Romney’s campaign coffers. Maybe President Obama’s latest “revolution” should have waited until after Nov. 6?

Obama should embrace Simpson-Bowles A s expected the presidential election is coming down to the 5-6 percent who either are not focused on the campaign or who are just plain conflicted. On many of the major issues and ideology, most voter opinions are already set in concrete. FELICIA MUFTIC The problem facing both Mitt Romney and President Obama is how to keep the concrete firm and still snag the elusive middle. The president has some work to do, but his options are not as big as some gambles he has already taken, and embracing SimpsonBowles debt reduction proposals by name is one good bet. Obama has a record of taking risks and winning. Reflecting on what has happened this last week regarding the president’s endorsement of marriage equality, events moved so quickly he went with his gut, but the gut may be a winner when the dust settles. Marriage equality is a gamble with only 50 percent in agreement. Evangelicals, Southerners, the LGBT community, and social libertarians had already dug themselves in. Others who were

MY VIEW

not with him on this issue, like members of the black and Hispanic communities and young voters, are committed to him for other reasons. The gamble is that Rust Belt blue collar workers who were grateful for the auto bailouts and women would likely put their own economic and health access agendas ahead of marriage equality issues in deciding whom to support. To a p p e a l t o m o d e r a t e s , Obama needs to endorse Simpson-Bowles debt reduction plan by name, because just about everyone in both political parties and in between do feel there is a need to tackle debt. By embracing SimpsonBowles, the president can put a brand name to his policies. He can then pit Simpson Bowles against the GOP-Ryan plans and make case that Simpson-Bowles is far more fair and balanced when it comes to who or what gets hit with the cuts and who pays more or fewer taxes. Obama has already embraced many of the details in SimpsonBowles. However, there is still left the thousand pound guerilla: “entitlements” and support of Simpson-Bowles implies support of their proposals. I hate the term “entitlements” because it makes me feel guilty that I am a beneficiary of two of them, Medicare and Social Secu-

rity., From time to time ill relatives have also been able to live out their lives humanely, first on Medicare and Social security, and later on Medicaid after assets ran out. We had put in our money and time and earned them or desperately needed them. Many on the conservative side have been or will be beneficiaries as well. That is why Obama and many on the right pussy foot around the issue, delay decisions for lame ducks to tackle, or exempt from changes current beneficiaries. Potentially to their downfall, Rep. Paul Ryan, and the House Republicans have proposed a solution that Romney called “marvelous.” However, what policies they propose, especially regarding Medicare, are potentially politically toxic. Obama can bite the bullet and endorse the Simpson-Bowles proposal to raise retirement age to 70. He should contrast that with the Ryan plan to privatize, voucherize, and leave future beneficiaries stuck with higher co-pays when they do get their “entitlements.” After all, fellow retirees, we are so much healthier than our predecessors. The next generations will be able to work a few more years, too. It is a haircut we can more comfortably ask them to take.

Tree planting & care class is May 20 KRISTEN LODGE klodge@skyhidailynews.com

Cathleen Brown attended Don McDavid’s class, “Tree Planting and Care in Grand County,� last year in Winter Park. “It was a great class to learn how to successfully plant trees,� she said. The class is based on current research through Colorado State University and delves into the several aspects of planting and caring for trees in Grand County. Topics include how to properly dig a hole. “You don’t want to dig deeper than the root ball or container or existing roots,� Brown said. Additional topics include watering and where to plant a tree. Brown learned in the class last year that in the early stages of planting, the key is frequent deep watering. Don McDavid will give a PowerPoint presentation, and two thirds of the presentation is from the Colorado Master Gardener class and from a speaker at ProGreen (professional green industry). The remaining third of the class is specifically about

trees above 6,500 feet. He will discuss types of trees that grow successfully in Grand County and where to plant them. A tree will grow better if it is not too close to a house and if it’s given room to grow, Brown said. “It will be refreshing to take the class again and take in some of the things I missed the first time,� Brown said. Tanya Cousineau also will be attending the class on Sunday. She recently completed the Colorado Master Gardener class and has been a gardener in Grand County for many years. She knows growing trees in our environment poses a challenge. “Don gives an in-depth explanation, why to plant certain ways,� she said. Cousineau is trying to reforest her yard like many homeowners in the county. And, it’s hard to do with temperature fluctuations, sun intensity, soil, and wind. “It’s difficult growing things up here,� she said. “There are only a handful of trees that make it. Don teaches you how to baby these trees to keep them alive.� She has planted aspen trees with just a 50 percent survival rate. Don’s theory is to get nurs-

Cousineau is attending the class to learn more from McDavid on this aspect and to “find out his tricks� and the new philosophies to successfully grow trees. “We’ve lost so many trees, my friends are talking about how to fill in empty spaces and revegetate with trees in our yards. Things just don’t grow fast; it takes awhile.� Last year, 36 people attended McDavid’s presentation. The same presentation will be given this year with updated research. “It seems many of us are interested in what we can do to help our forests,� he said. His teaching style is garnered from the latest research from a Colorado Master Gardener classes, and classes at ProGreen.

Lainie Freeman 1967-2012 Lainie passed away on May 12, 2012 at her home in Tabernash, Colo. She was the beloved mother of Adam and Allison; daughter of Nancy and step-daughter of Mitch Motaches; and sister of Mike and Doug Sibalik. Her father, Paul Sibalik, is deceased. Lainie was born on July 26, 1967 in Washington, DC. Her first home was in Maryland where her father was an early executive in the information technology business. Her maternal grandfather was a noted botanist. While still a child, her father’s company sent him and his family to Australia. After a few years in Australia the family returned to the Washington, DC area where she graduated from high school and attended college. One of Lainie’s first jobs was with the Hyatt Corporation where she met her husband David Freeman. Dave and Lainie married in the summer of 1993 at her father’s home. In December, 1994, she gave birth to Allison. The family moved to Williamsburg, Va. then to Denver. The family’s first native Coloradan, Adam, was born there 1997. In 1998, they moved to Granby and Lainie did what she loved most, cared for her children. While Lainie was raising her children she joined a group of women who took turns caring for Granby man in his mid-90s who was an early settler in the county. She loved helping him and told the family many stories of his life with his brothers’ farming in Grand County. Lainie was wonderful with the elderly and was a favorite of her grandmother and Dave’s grandmother as well. Although she and Dave divorced, it was in Grand County that she established roots.

Over the past 14 years she continued to work in the food industry and on the census. Lainie was an exceptional cook who loved to read about cooking and c o l l e c t recipes. She enjoyed entertaining her friends with her wonderful meals and especially preparing special meals for the kids. She was a devoted animal lover and had a particular soft spot for cats. Lainie enjoyed music and attended concerts frequently. In addition to rock and blues, she liked jazz singers like Billie Holiday and Diana Krall. She was a voracious reader especially fond of Diane Mott Davidson, Toni Morrison and Anne Tyler. When the Adam and Allison were younger they enjoyed camping on Shadow Mountain Lake with their Mom. A memorial service will be held at the Church of the Eternal Hills on May 18, 2012 at 10 a.m. A reception will follow at the home of Bob and Jennifer Freeman, who live at 17 Fawn Court in Tabernash. Lainie will be greatly missed by her friends and family. Leave a condolence for the family, share a story about Lainie, or add a photo to Lainie’s “Book of Memories” at www.grandcountymortuary.com Mark H. Shearon, Funeral Director, Grand County Mortuar y, is in charge of the arrangements. 970-725-9010.

Man charged in Georgetown homicide BY C ADDIE NATH cnath@summitdaily.com

Thomas Claeys has been arrested on first-degree murder charges in connection with the slaying of a Kiowa man, whose body was found off Interstate 70 near Silver Plume in 2010. “We found the person who we believe killed Conrad Crall in September of 2010,� District Attorney Mark Hurlbert said. Claeys, 56, of Kiowa has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, second-degree kidnapping and aggravated robbery, Hurlbert said. Residents discovered the body of 31year-old Conrad Keith Crall Oct. 9, 2010, as they were hiking around their property, according to press reports at the time. The DA’s office also plans to bring charges against a second defendant in the case. Officials would not immediately say

what those charges will be. A judge has put a gag order on the case, and arrest warrants containing details of the crime and the investigation have also been sealed, Hurlbert said. Crall’s body had been on the hikers’ property for 10 days to two weeks, Clear Creek County authorities told the press. He was identified by his fingerprints and appeared to have been killed at the same location he was found. D e s p i t e t h e t w o d i s t i n c t mu rd e r charges, Hurlbert confirmed there was only one victim. One of the charges is for first-degree murder after deliberation and the second is for first-degree murder while committing a felony. Claeys face a sentence of life in prison for each of the murder charges if convicted. The kidnapping and robbery charges each carry a sentence of 32 years in prison.

CDOT summer road projects Colorado highway officials have announced construction plans for more than 100 miles of highways in the northwestern corner of the state, at a cost of more than $100 million. That projects list includes $37.5 million worth of road work being done in Garfield, Eagle and Pitkin counties, according to a list issued by the Colorado Department of Transportation on Tuesday. The projects in the area include: • Safety improvements to two miles of State Highway 13 near Meeker in Rio Blanco County, $4.9 million, complete in November. • Construction of the West Parachute Interchange on I-70, $8.1 million, complete in August. • Concrete paving along seven miles in Glenwood Canyon, $2.7 million, project completed. • Paving along nine miles of I-70 between Dotsero and Gypsum, $8.7 million, com-

plete in September. • Shoulder widening and paving along five miles of U.S. Highway 6 between Eagle and Wolcott, $2.1 million, complete in August. • Signal improvements along three miles of Highway 82 near Aspen, $675,000, complete in June. • Paving and signal work on nine miles of Highway 82 near Basalt, $6.9 million, complete in October. • Rockfall mitigation on six miles of Highway 133 on McClure Pass, $3.5 million, complete in November. “We will have a significant number of much-needed projects under way this summer in our region of the state,â€? said CDOT's David Eller, director of Region 3. He said the projects will have “hundreds of men and women hard at work in construction zones.â€?

Mentors In Life Enrichment helps at-risk youth R. C. LIBERALI

How to help

Special to the Sky-Hi News

Mentors In Life Enrichment is Grand County's grant-funded mentoring program, targeting local at-risk youth. And it is looking for help. Launched in October 2010 thanks to a Justice Assistance Grant from Colorado's Division of Criminal Justice, the Enrichment Program is run by Mentor Coordinator Ian Aneloski. The program seeks to pair young people, ages 10 to 17, with positive adult mentors. It is long held by experts that by developing and fostering positive adult relationships, at-risk students can be better prepared to achieve their maximum potential. “The mentoring program, which works closely with both

Anyone desirous of getting involved with Grand County's at-risk youth is encouraged to contact Mentors In Life Enrichment Mentor Coordinator Ian Aneloski at 970-725-3137 or 970-531-7291 or email, ianeloski@co.grand.co.us. the East and West Grand School Districts, currently has some 14 'mentees',� said Aneloski, “nine in East Grand and five in West Grand. And frankly, we are seeking more community help in order to better expand our presence in Kremmling.� The numbers justify the need for intervention. According to the nonprofit Colorado Children’s Campaign: 12 percent of school age children in Grand County are living at or below the poverty line,

about 274 children. And, a total of 33 percent of all children in West Grand and East Grand schools qualify for free and reduced-priced lunch programs. School personnel — from both districts — identify and refer the potential at-risk children. “Mentees,� Aneloski said, “meet certain at-risk indicators. These include such factors as behavior problems, academic problems as well as tardinessand-truancy issues. “After a referral is made, I, in turn, contact the parents (or parent) for their expressed written permission to involve their minor child,� he said. “In order for this to work, I need a total buy-in-parent-and-child both sign their respective names in order to be involved.� Aneloski and his volunteer mentors work to provide

“mentees� with a stable and positive adult influence, one from which they can learn needed life skills, can rely upon to help them through new or difficult life experiences and can share and enjoy new life experiences. Aneloski has been working diligently to engender support for his program in the hope of attracting more mentors. Aneloski will actively seek out public speaking venues with practically anyone who'll hear him out. “Because I'm lacking mentors on the west end, I've been working at it hard,� he said. “Becoming a mentor,� he said, “requires several things. Mentors have to not only agree to give a year-long commitment, two-to-three hours-per-week, but have a genuine desire to

make a difference.� He tries to pair mentors and their mentees based on such factors as common interests — “like-minded people productively engaging in beneficial, like-minded activities,� Aneloski said. In order to qualify for the program, potential mentors first must submit to a fingerprintbased criminal background check that is done at the Grand County Sheriff 's Office. Once they pass, they then take part in a two-to-three hour initial training program. Potential mentors also undergo quarterly training sessions that take one-to-two hours, participate in a yearly service learning project, get together for monthly group activities and attend an annual recognition ceremony.

Season pass holders savvy about I-70 Coalition to target pass holders to manage traffic BY C ADDIE NATH cnath@summitdaily.com

When it comes to peak-time travel and Interstate 70 issues, skiers and snowboarders who hold season passes tend to be the most informed travelers from the Front Range, according to a recent study from the I-70 Coalition. The new data may have pinpointed the perfect target audience for efforts aimed at changing driver habits to reduce peak-time traffic on the corridor. “The overarching finding is that season pass holders are a ready audience for us to effect some behavior change,” said Margaret Bowes, a program coordinator for the I-70 Coalition.

Season pass holders are more likely than day-pass purchasers to check information sources for upto-date traffic information before they make the trip to the mountains and had more information about ongoing projects on the corridor, such as the planned widening of eastbound Twin Tunnel, according to the study. They also tend to be flexible about travel times and more likely to plan their commute from Denver to avoid peak time traffic, the study indicated. Of the study respondents who owned a season pass, 66 percent said they frequently arrive early at resorts during the ski season and leave early to avoid traffic, compared with only 44 percent of non-pass holders. Half of pass holders who participated in the study also said they will stay overnight at or near resorts, and 48 percent said they ski or ride during the week to miss the weekend congestion.

Targeting the audience The data indicate a long-discussed proposal to reduce the peak-season traffic through the corridor by simply encouraging drivers to stay off the highway during the busiest times might have some traction if targeted at the right audience. Members of the I-70 Coalition, an alliance of stakeholders from communities along the corridor, intend to begin working with local resorts to send a specific message to Front Range visitors who hold season passes. The study looked at skier and snowboarder attitudes on a number of different travel-related issues. It is the first time officials have had hard numbers to help indicate driver attitudes toward issues on the I-70 corridor, Bowes said. “It just helps us understand the users of this corridor a little more and what makes them

tick,” Colorado Department of and 511.

PRIMARY CARE FOR ALL, REGARDLESS OF ABILITY TO PAY Do you have a primary care provider? Are you comfortable enough with that provider to ask questions about your health? How about advocating for your or your family’s needs? Are you able to call your primary care provider to ask questions about current health issues? These are all questions to which your local healthcare providers want you to be able to answer ‘yes’! A primary care provider is the healthcare professional that you use for primary and preventative care. This means you go regularly for well person checks, including annual physicals, well woman exams, and well child checks. Grand County’s healthcare providers want you to know that they are committed to serving you, even if you do not have insurance or the ability to pay. The Grand County Healthcare Professionals Society (the Society) consists of local healthcare providers from all sectors – doctors, nurses, dentists, mental health therapists, chiropractors, nutritionists, and nonprofits. The goal of the Society has always been to improve the health and wellbeing of its citizens. The Society is supporting the medical home model. This model provides a stable, accountable, primary care provider for every citizen. This is a national focus that has shown to increase a person’s ability to understand health issues and directions, which leads to better prevention, and ultimately leads to healthier persons and a healthier community. Their motto for the medical home model is, “We don’t care where you go, or who you go to, just as long as you go [to a primary care provider].” Another main piece of the medical home model is that all members of your medical team communicate, efficiently and effectively, on your care. Of course this is all still confidential, but the purpose is so that all your doctors and other care team members (example, dentists, mental health therapists, chiropractors) know what kind of treatments you are on or any new medical issues you may have. This way, they can adjust their care of you accordingly. And it will help reduce cost of care because you won’t have to redo the same tests at different locations. You will then have the best possible healthcare! If you don’t have a primary care provider, shop around and find one that fits for you and your family. For more information about medical homes or the Healthcare Professionals Society, please call the Grand County Rural Health Network at 970-725-3477 or email jfanning@co.grand.co.us.

PUZZLE ANSWER

WOMEN TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR HEALTH BY LEARNING ALL THEY CAN DEAR ABBY: Between juggling the joys and challenges of home life and staying productive at work, it's easy for women to make quick decisions now that could affect their health later on, or to miss early signs of medical problems altogether. To help women take control of their health, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Office of Women's Health and the General Services Administration's Federal Citizen Information Center have created the free Healthy Women's Action Kit. It contains tips that can help women of every age. The topics include: buying contact lenses online, mammograms, hypertension, cholesterol, Pap tests, menopause and hormones, and more. Abby, thank you for sharing this information kit with your readers, and for faithfully introducing all of us to ideas and information to help make our lives better. -- MARSHA HENDERSON, FDA ASSISTANT COMMISSIONER FOR WOMEN'S HEALTH DEAR MARSHA: I'm glad to help get the word out to my readers during National Women's Health Week that the information is available for them at no cost. Readers, among the topics Marsha didn't mention that are also included are a guide to help you quit smoking and facts about tattoos, osteoporosis, diabetes and health scams. The more we know, the better we can protect ourselves and the people we love. CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Megan Fox, 26; Tori Spelling, 39; Janet Jackson, 46; Pierce Brosnan, 59. Happy Birthday: Size up your financial situation and prioritize what must be done. Budget wisely for the things you really want, and eliminate anything unnecessary on your list. A concise and efficient step forward will make a huge difference to the outcome, with many surprises that are directly linked to a practical approach. Your numbers are 6, 13, 23, 25, 32, 40, 47. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get ready for adventure, ups and downs and lots to think about. A friend may have a greater interest in you than you realize. Don't take on a burden that will stifle your chance to follow your dream. 3 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Meeting someone interesting through work or while networking can lead to a long-time connection. The ideas you present will be taken seriously and will be given great consideration by someone with clout. Don't be afraid to use a little force. 3 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Avoid procrastinating or getting annoyed with someone pressuring you to choose. Take advantage of the possibilities instead. Love is in the picture. Do something special for those you care about most. Embrace whatever comes your way.

The Healthy Women's Action Kits are easy to order. All you have to do is send your name and address to Healthy Women's Action Kit, Pueblo, CO 81009; go online to www.promotions.usa.gov/dearabby.html; or call (888)8-PUEBLO (that's (888) 878-3256) weekdays 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern time. You can also read the publications online in PDF format, download them to your computer and print them. Don't wait, because supplies are limited. DEAR ABBY: The man I'm in love with, "Butch," is an alcoholic. He refuses to get help and has become verbally abusive. He got a DUI and there's a warrant out for him because he didn't follow through on his court orders. I threw him out after he lost his job. Butch is homeless now and has taken up with a homeless woman. When he's sober he's a totally different person, and that's the man I'm in love with. I'm devastated by his actions and I want him back. I am so co-dependent I cry daily about this. I do go to meetings and I'm trying to move on, but I have no friends and don't know where to start to get a life. Butch's behavior is out of control, and it's only a matter of time before he winds up in jail. Could you please tell me what to do? -- LOST IN LOVE IN MONTANA DEAR LOST IN LOVE: I'm sorry you're hurting, but pleased

4 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don't play the role of a martyr. Put your efforts into your home, family and future. Reinvent how you present what you have to offer. Don't let depression sink in. Concentrate instead on what you can get done. 2 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Consider your relationships and what improvements can be made. Interacting and participating will lead to interesting contacts who can affect your future. Traveling will give you an interesting new perspective on the possibilities that exist. 5 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Communication is your ticket to advancement. Expand on an idea you feel has potential to become profitable. Attending a reunion or encountering someone from your past will remind you of an old dream. It's time to look back in order to move forward. 3 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Shopping or relaxing at a spa will do a lot for your morale and give you time to consider your options. Children or a dependent will inspire you to do something you may have forgone without prompting. Love is highlighted. 3 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A partnership that never had a chance to develop will be given

a fresh start. Negotiate strategically, making clear what you have to offer and what you want in return. Make your residence more conducive to working creatively from home. 3 stars SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Try something new, or get involved in an activity that promises to challenge you physically. The opportunity to show off will make you feel good and help position you for a job that interests you. Love is in the stars. 5 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Keep your emotions in check. Observe what others are doing. Focus on how you can make your life better. A little creative accounting will help protect your assets and secure your financial position for years to come. Stick close to

CLOSE TO HOME

to know you are going to meetings. At some point they will help you accept that as much as you love the person Butch was, for the sake of your health and sanity you must "let go and let God." Your next step should be to give yourself less time to brood. Fill your non-working hours by volunteering -- at a hospital, a library, a senior citizen's center. That's where you'll meet worthwhile, involved people and start building friendships with mentally healthy people. I promise you the more you put into it, the more you'll receive. DEAR ABBY: Is there any medical reason why a man or woman needs to wear underwear? -- MICHAEL IN LADSON, S.C. DEAR MICHAEL: There is no "medical" reason, but there is a sanitary reason, unless you are prepared to launder your trousers every time you wear them to prevent the accumulation of bodily secretions such as perspiration.

Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069

home. 2 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Wait and see what everyone else does. You don't want to end up in a position that costs you because you were too eager to offer or promise your assistance. Love is looking good, and a positive decision will stabilize your personal life. 4 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): An opportunity to change the way you earn your living is apparent. Update your resume or present other ways that your services and skills can be put to use. Greater job and financial security is apparent. Don't be afraid to take a chance. 3 stars Birthday Baby: You are a gogetter. You take action and you graciously accept rewards.
