Trustees choose town manager By Lynn Burton Sopris Sun Staff Writer


he Carbondale Board of Trustees chose a new town manager Tuesday night. He’s Jay Harrington, the current city manager in Cortez, Colo. “He seems to have the whole package,” said Carbondale Mayor Stacey Bernot on Wednesday morning. Bernot said she was particularly impressed with the favorable comments Harrington received from citizen panels and at public receptions for the final six candidates. “He had tremendous support from panels and a broad based of support,” Bernot said. Harrington was not available for comment. According to information released by the town during the interview process, Harrington has 17 years of city and town management experience, including experience in mountain communities. He served as town manager for Telluride and Pagosa Springs, and as a senior planner for La Plata County. Harrington holds a BA in environmental studies from Saint Lawrence University and a MA in urban and regional planning from the University of Colorado at Denver. Bernot said Harrington has signed a two-year contract with the town and the position pays $114,000 a year. “The board eagerly anticipates his arrival and looks forward to his leadership,” she said. The town manager position opened up when the trustees voted 4-3 last December not to renew former town manager Tom Baker’s contract. Bernot said Harrington is required to give 60days notice to Cortez and she expects him to start in Carbondale in late August. When Harrington steps into this town hall office there’ll be a full plate of projects and issues with which to deal, including: the on-going comprehensive plan process, development reviews for the Village at Crystal River and Thompson Park, drafting medical marijuana regulations and dealing with a slow economy that is producing flat or declining revenues. During the past five months, assistant town manager Nancy Barnett took on added duties and still served as finance director. “The board (of trustees) is really appreciative of how Nancy has stepped in and kept the business of the town functioning,” Bernot said. “I can’t say enough about how she stepped up to the plate.” Bernot said the trustees voted 7-0 to hire Harrington. Trustees made their announcement after an executive session at the end of Tuesday night’s meeting.

Carbondale Commentary

Behind closed doors I’m a big fan of the kitchen door era. None of this vaulted ceiling, open space, can’t-tell-wherethe-kitchen-ends-and-the-dining-room-begins s#!%. I want a swinging kitchen door. The kind that can really hurt if two people try to use it from opposite sides simultaneously — SMACK! And let’s go back in time with our insider knowledge of politicians’ lives too. There’s too much information coming at us from all sides. I feel like Sarah Palin in that bakery, fielding ‘gotcha’ questions about Paul Revere riding through the night to warn “…the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells.”— no, wait a minute … I don’t feel that confused. Look at the difference between Schwarzenegger and Jefferson’s indiscretions, LH6s, or whatever the latest text abbreviation for adultery is. They both had inappropriate relations with their maids and fathered illegitimate offspring, but with Jefferson it was only discussed behind closed doors. “If you haven’t got anything nice to say about anybody, come sit next to me.” — Alice Roosevelt Longworth. With Schwarzenegger it’s all over the place; I can’t get away from it. And I don’t want to see or hear about Arnold’s illicit affair every time I turn around (especially since she looks like Arnold in drag.) Speaking of keeping it hidden, the banks are at it again. Our economy hasn’t even recovered and they’re setting it up all over again. High-speed banking is the ultimate inside joke. It refers to the super computers owned and operated by the large banks By Jeannie Perry that trade on the stock market at break-neck speed. Break-neck being the operative word, because that’s what you’ll wish would happen to you once you realize all your earnings have disappeared behind Curtain No. 2 to subsidize some CEO’s private island getaway.These guys have no conscience. Seriously, how good can that piña colada taste, knowing that you are an unconscionable thief who stole Joe Schmo’s pension to pay for it? Where have all the scrupulous people gone? I recently saw a MasterCard commercial where the guy uses his check card to purchase a ‘first date finest’ bottle of wine, a ‘homecooked meal’ and a toothbrush — “just in case.” The requisite first date flowers replaced by a toothbrush, just in case he gets lucky and spends the night with a girl he just met?! Again, I’m sure there have always been women who will let a guy steal bases in the first inning, and I’m certainly not judging them, but why do I have to see it in a freakin’ MasterCard commercial?! Is nothing secret or private anymore? It’s just like the modern kitchen — all out in the open for everyone to watch and throw in their two cents. I guess it explains the surge in reality TV. Why pay writers and actors and set builders to build a fictional story, when we’re perfectly happy to watch strangers work, shop and play, day in and day out, in their in-theordinary lives. From what I can gather, young people would rather forfeit their privacy than get a real job. I’ve heard a lot of griping about the Y Generation’s work ethic.“They text on the job and when reprimanded, they walk off the job. … They have no respect for authority or building a reputable work history. … They don’t show up for work on time, if at all.” I say more power to ‘em. They’re obviously adapting to their environment. Generation Y is the first one to be authority savvy; they know that they can work hard their whole life for The Bank only to get squeezed out/canned/laid off just before any retirement benefits they may have accrued would kick in. And by then they’ll be too old to be considered a desirable candidate for a new job. So how can we blame them for doing what they want, when they want? It’s evolution. In a few generations, I think, we’ll see the death of privacy, democracy, and any other old-fashioned “acy.” As well as any worth in a good reputation. As many a politician has proven, they don’t hold their value. I predict all this and that everyone’s thumbs will be smaller.

Thanks from CMS Dear Editor: I am a teacher at Carbondale Middle School, and I want to publicly thank the organizations and individuals who made this school year one of the most successful in my career. Steve Kaufman’s after school program called “Second Shift” enabled me to give additional instruction to students who were falling behind in math. Thank you to Steve and his staff for creating a program that supports students’ learning beyond regular school hours. Local volunteer extraordinaire Dave Kolquist spent countless hours in my classroom teaching math and modeling positive social behavior and effective communication skills. Dave and his wife also donated materials and expertise for a culminating project in which students applied their math skills to construct golf clubs. If our valley had 100 volunteers like Dave the achievement gap would likely disappear. Many people and business deserve thanks for their support of extra curricular projects at CMS. My success with the Energy Champions, a group of dedicated students who met regularly after school to conserve energy, was made possible by Alice Laird at CLEER, Charley Haupt at New Energy Technology, and Auden Schendler at Aspen Skiing Company. Finally, the CMS climbing wall is nearly complete due to the help of local businesses Ernie Kollar engineering, Pacific Sheet Metal, Grizzly Electric, and parents Tom and Laurie Stevens. To make the wall usable the school now needs to raise $2,000 for padding. Donations may be sent to “Carbondale Middle School Climbing Wall.” Undoubtedly, students benefit when people and businesses get involved in their local schools. I encourage anyone who would like to be a part of the 2011/2012 school year in any capacity to contact me or Carbondale Middle School. Thank you for your support! Michael Logan Carbondale

Sports thanks Dear Editor: The Roaring Fork Sports Foundation would like to thank the following local businesses for their support of the Kick-Off Classic golf tournament to help benefit studentathletes in the Roaring Fork Valley. The golf tournament was held on June 4 at Aspen Glen. Thanks to the staff at Aspen Glen for once again putting on a flawless event. To Twirp Anderson, thanks for allowing us to utilize your auctioneering skills. A special thanks goes out to the following apparel sponsors: Glenwood Insurance Agency, MRI, Drs. Rob and John Murray, Alpine Bank, McDonald’s, and Carl J. Ciani Agency. Thanks to Moe’s Southwest Grill for donating the food grilled on the course.Thanks to the following booster clubs for their help on the course: Roaring Fork Ram Parents, Basalt Longhorn Parents and Glenwood Springs Demon Parents. Thanks to the many local golfers that participated in this year’s tournament. Without the support of the local community and businesses that were hole sponsors and or do-

nated items for the silent auction the event would not have been a huge success. Thanks again and congratulations to this year’s scholarship winners Jake Strack-Loertscher (Roaring Fork High School) who will be attending Northeastern Junior College in the fall, and Nick Ciani (Glenwood Springs High School) who will be attending Colorado State University in the fall. Best of luck to both of these student athletes on their collegiate endeavors. Alicia Crandell Carbondale

Save Thompson House Dear Editor: I recently toured the remarkable Thompson House on the urging of a number of locals including Skip Bell. I was so impressed with this local treasure, a veritable turn-key museum, that I think everyone in town should visit, particularly the children. I understand that the future of this treasure is in doubt, and it seems to me that it would be a terrible shame for Carbondale to lose this opportunity to safeguard this part of the town’s heritage for future generations. I don’t know the particulars of the real estate development surrounding the Thompson House that is presently before the town, so I can’t comment on whether I think it should be approved simply to save the house, but clearly the house should be saved, if at all possible, even if the development for reasons of density or design is not approved.

Ross hires Sonya Hemmen as new Head of School Sopris Sun Staff Report







If Saturday’s bicycle racers were in cars, they’d be breaking the speed limit. But they aren’t, so they get to pedal as fast as they can at the Rocky Mountain Omnium criterium. The race travels Main Street, Colorado Avenue, Seventh and Third streets. The alley behind the Dinkel Building will be open for deliveries. Sopris Sun file photo


Criterium turns downtown into bike racing central By Lynn Burton Sopris Sun Staff Writer Look for racers to hit 20th gear down Main Street, and speeds of 35-40 miles per hour, during this Saturday’s Rocky Mountain Omnium criterium. “The criterium is the NASCAR of bicycle racing,” said race organizer Mitch Hyra. “They’ll be breaking the (vehicle) speed limit.” Saturday’s criterium is the second leg of the three-day omnium, which features a time trial from Colorado Rocky Mountain School to Iron Bridge on Friday and a road race at Dotsero on Sunday. If the entire event is sort of a three-ring circus, the criterium in Carbondale is the center ring. Besides Saturday’s races, the Chamber of Commerce is operating a beer garden all day at Fourth and Main and also serving up free music. An announcer will keep folks appraised of the action from a race trailer at Fourth and Main. All the while, even though Main Street will be closed to vehicular traffic for the races, pedestrians will be free to cross after looking both ways. “There’ll be plenty of time to cross the street,” said Carbondale Recreation Director Jeff Jackel. “We hope to see hundreds of people downtown.” After Friday’s time trials, racers and everyone else will be treated to a Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities concert at Fourth and Main featuring Smooth Money Gesture. This is the second year Hyra, a Glenwood Springs resident, has brought the race

to Carbondale after staging the event for two years before that in his hometown. He first got a notion to move the criterium out of Glenwood Springs after being relegated to the town’s “shoulder areas” in 2009. He thought about holding races on Missouri Heights but switched to Carbondale in 2010 after talking with Jackel. “He (Jackel) said they’d love to have it in Carbondale,” Hyra said. “I said ‘great.’ If you can secure the roads we’ll bring the racers. Carbondale made it easy.” Hyra and Jackel both stressed the race isn’t costing the town of Carbondale any money and is made possible through volunteer efforts. Actually, the town might make a little money.“We’re charging $4 per shower at the recreation center,” Jackel said. Upwards of 350 professional and amateur racers, mostly from the Front Range, are expected to stay in local motels or camp out. Hyra said many will be riding $8,000 carbon-fiber bikes that weigh about 15 pounds. There will be 12 races on Saturday, ranging from 40 minutes to 70 minutes (with one five lap race), starting at 8:30 a.m. A men’s professional race is scheduled to conclude the day’s events at 6:40 p.m. Professionals average 23-30 hours a week training, while serious amateurs can spend 20 hours and beginners four to eight hours. Hyra said some racers will compete in the criterium on teams while others will be pedaling solo. CRITERIUM page 5

Ross Montessori School announced on June 14 it has hired Sonya Hemmen as its Head of School. Hemmen replaces Mark Grice, who served as Head of School for the past six years, according to a press release. Her first day on the job was scheduled for June 15. “Sonya Hemmen was enthusiastically and unanimously recommended for the position by a search committee made up of teachers, parents and board members,” said school president Charlie Cook. After a rigorous and thorough process, Hemmen was selected from a group of 23 applicants. For the past eight years, Hemmen was principal at Glenwood Springs Elementary School where she improved test scores, increased enrollment and created a strong sense of community, according to Cook. She is fluent in Spanish and said she is “excited” to help Ross Montessori expand its Latino enrollment. “Sonya has many of the critical components we were looking for in our new Head of School, but what impressed me the most about Sonya was her respect for and focus on the child,” said Ross Montessori teacher Kelly Klotz, who spoke on behalf of the search committee. “Every reference stated that her number one priority is the children. Sonya is not yet Montessori trained, but the way she thinks about education and the way she thinks about children aligns with the Montessori philosophy. I couldn’t be more excited about her joining our community and leading our team of educators.” Ross Montessori School is a public charter school that serves 220 students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Cook said it offers an authentic Montessori education combined with Spanish language instruction, outdoor education, art and music. Ross Montessori, located at 407 Merrill (north of Carbondale Town Hall), is open to students throughout the Roaring Fork Valley. The Roaring Fork Re-1 School District didn’t renew Hemmen’s contract in March, prompting protests from Glenwood Springs Elementary School parents and other supporters.

Trustees keep slogging through ompson annexation By Lynn Burton Sopris Sun Staff Writer The town trustees discussed the Thompson Park annexation and zoning application again on Tuesday night and continued the public hearing to July 12. Thompson Park, proposed by Frieda Wallison of Snowmass, is a 10-acre parcel that partially borders Highway 133 at the south end of town and includes the historic Thompson House, which Wallison said she will donate to either the town or Mount Sopris Historical Society. Last year, the Thompson family donated the house’s contents, some of which are more than 100 years old, to the Mount So-

pris Historical Society, which has said it hopes to operate the two-story brick structure as a museum. The property, which abuts River Valley Ranch, is surrounded by Carbondale but has never been annexed into the town and carries a Garfield County zoning of A/R/RD (agricultural/rural/rural density). Wallison seeks to gain approval to build 45 housing units. Part of her proposal includes dedicating the approximately 1.5acres the Thompson House sits on to the town for a park. She originally presented her development application to the town more than a year ago. Town planner Janet Buck presented the

trustees with six points for discussion on Tuesday night. The trustees made it through three points before continuing the hearing: park improvements for the developer to complete (which includes a phasing schedule), Thompson House maintenance and transportation impact fees. The trustees discussed the development application for about two hours on Tuesday night. Wallison attended the meeting with her representatives Michael Hassig and Mark Chain. Annexation into Carbondale is the first issue for resolution. After that, Wallison has one year to submit a master plat for the property.

Upcoming issues for consideration include phasing and vested rights, according to Buck’s six-point discussion list. In other action Tuesday night, the trustees: • Approved a special event liquor license for the Carbondale Rotary Foundation’s “Great Balls of Fire” event; • Approved a liquor license renewal for Six89 restaurant; • Approved a liquor license approval for the River Valley Ranch Master Association; • Approved a draft intergovernmental agreement with the Garfield County Library District for a new library planned for the corner of Third Street and Sopris Avenue.

Hikers, mountain bikers, equestrians, naturalists, open space supporters and trail enthusiasts are expected to gather near Snowmass Village on June 28 between 3 and 6 p.m. to celebrate the grand opening of the Droste Mountain Park Open Space. The party, which will be held in the Town Park Gazebo adjacent to the Snowmass Village Recreation Center, will combine a ribbon cutting ceremony with live music, refreshments and guided tours up to the ridge running the length of the property, according to a press release. “We’ve just put the finishing touches on a new trail leading from the Snowmass Village roundabout up Hidden Valley to the top of the ridge,” said Pitkin County Open Space

and Trails Steward, Gary Tennenbaum. “People can literally park in the Rodeo lot and either walk, run, mountain bike or ride a horse from the lot onto the new open space. It’s magnificent up there.” The 845-acre Droste Parcel was purchased last winter for $17 million in a partnership between Pitkin County, the city of Aspen, town of Snowmass Village, Aspen Valley Land Trust and Great Outdoors Colorado. The purchase eliminated the possibility that the property could be developed into a subdivision for which it had zoning approvals. An interim management plan is in place that makes it possible to open the property on a limited basis to the public. The plan can be viewed online at

Criterium continued om page 3 Races start at the west end of Main Street, then follow a .6 mile course that takes bicyclists north on Third Street, west on Colorado and south of Seventh Street before connecting with Main Street again. Attendants will direct traffic from both ends of Main Street. The alley north of the Dinkel Building will be open for delivery vehicles. As for Friday’s 20K time trials, they start at 6:30 p.m. near Colorado Rocky Mountain School and go west on County Road 109 to Iron Bridge. Sunday’s 50K and 80K road race heads north out of Dotsero and returns. Hyra, 49, has lived in Glenwood Springs for eight years and has been a bicycle racer

for 18. Originally from Wisconsin, he got started bicycle racing as a way to stay in shape as a ski racer. “It got to be where I couldn’t just roll off the couch and beat the young punks anymore,” he joked. Both Hyra and Jackel would like to build the Rocky Mountain Omnium to become one of the state’s premier races and turn it into a regional event that draws racers from around the state and beyond. Hyra points to the cycling festival that takes place in Durango and wonders why the same thing couldn’t happen here. “Carbondale is a unique community,” he said. “I think it could happen here.”

Don’t bet on grizzlies For folks who climb, scamper or hike around on Mt. Sopris here’s a question. Have any of you seen what appears to be a grizzly bear up there? No word on whether the mystery bear was ďŹ shing at Thomas Lakes (like the Hamm’s bear?), attempting to summit Sopris, lurking about in aspen groves, trail snifďŹ ng or just breathing in the cool air. In any case, a rumor is making the rounds that a grizzly might have been spotted on Sopris but the Colorado Division of Wildlife is downplaying the possibility. “There have been no known grizzlies in Colorado since 1979,â€? said DOW spokesman Mike Porras. That particular bear was shot dead by a bow hunter in southwest Colorado (the San Juans), which pretty much conďŹ rmed the existence of at least one grizzly in the state back then. Porras said it’s unlikely but possible that a grizzly could have migrated down to Sopris from the Wyoming border, and even more unlikely that a self-sustaining grizzly population exists in the Carbondale area. It’s more likely that someone could have seen a really big black bear (700-800 pounds) and mistook it for a grizzly. “People sometimes over-estimate the size of bears when they see them,â€? Porras said. Black bear can sometimes be honey or cinnamon colored, and look like a grizzly. Black bear have larger ears than grizzlies (not that most folks can rely on ďŹ rst-hand comparisons). Grizzlies’ backs are humped rather than sloped like a black

A really big barn on Missouri Heights has prompted questions and concerns from some neighbors, partly because the GarďŹ eld County Planning and Zoning Commission was never asked to review it, but the 67,000square-foot structure complies with county regulations. “It (the barn) is allowed as a use by right (in the rural zone district),â€? said GarďŹ eld County building ofďŹ cial Andy Schwaller. “(That’s why) it never went to P&Z.â€? Schwaller said the structure is a “mixed useâ€? facility because it contains an indoor equestrian arena, storage for hay and other items, and stalls for horses and livestock. It’s located southwest of the Missouri Heights schoolhouse at 5644 County Road 100 at the former Sage Hill Ranch. According to GarďŹ eld County documents, the property’s former owners are Newton Bartley and Eric Calderon of Aspen. The new owner is the Old Red Barn, LLC, with Melissa Wright, of Aspen, listed as the manager. Schwaller said zoning allows the barn’s owners to produce equestrian events that involve people who board horses there, but for equestrian events open to the public or for other events they would need a special use permit that requires a limited or major impact review.
