t age 15, Josefina Mendez made a deal with her older brother: He said he would pay for her private voice classes as long as she religiously attended them twice a week. Mendez agreed and continued to study Italian Opera with her teacher for five years, leading to a career in music that has included performing with the Argentinian Jazz Orquestra, an R&B band in her hometown of Buenos Aires, and her latest musical endeavor with other valley musicians — NorthYSur. The NorthYSur is one of numerous local acts to perform at the 41st annual Carbondale Mountain Fair, and performs on July 28 at 12:30 p.m. on the gazebo stage. The band’s name represents the flavor of their music; NorthYSur, or North and South, blends the sounds of traditional North and South American jazz and bossa nova in a unique style. Mendez explains that the band is relatively new. About a year ago, Mendez and Jeremy Fleisher (classical guitar) met through a mutual friend. After several months, Justin Anderson (stand-up bass) joined. Last April as the trio was performing at the Hotel Jerome in Aspen, Bob Levey (drums), Tim Fox (piano/trumpet) and Ross Kribbs (violin) listened in. “We invited Tim to play some tunes with his trumpet and I knew right away that there was full potential for a jazz band to be born,” Mendez said. “I have been nothing but blessed with these amazing musicians. And it’s very interesting, too, that all of us somehow have met in the past through other musicians. The Roaring Fork Valley is very lucky to have a big musical community.” The group has continued its gigs at the Hotel Jerome, as well as the Limelight, Takah Sushi and for a local artists’ showcase at Belly Up. Mendez sings in English, Portuguese and Spanish and although her deal with her brother ended when she left South America, she continued her vocal work with Aspen teacher Julie Paxton after relocating to Snowmass Village for a hospitality internship in fall 2001. Although Mendez been singing since she was little, she says when she began performing in public NORTHYSUR page 5

Would it be an oxymoron to say the Carbondale Mountain Fair organizers staged a “dry run” for their hosing operation earlier in the week? In any case, these folks responded to the call for a Sopris Sun photo opp. The real hosing-down-ofhot-dancers starts Friday afternoon and continues through Sunday. For details, see the Mountain Fair story on page 3 and the program inside. Happy hosing. Happy fair. Photo by Jane Bachrach

Until Then for Karen

There are no bridges, not really. August rivers, footsteps vanishing on bones.

The moon is far away and for once I am with the moon refusing to re-make the world. Bears come down from the mountains shut forever in awful cupboards.

I cannot forget what I want living in the mountains, and will only emerge when sacred things go back to safekeeping. – Cameron Scott

Vallario out of line

Wilderness Workshop thanks

Dear Editor: I am concerned by the actions of Tanny McGinnis, public information and community relations deputy for the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office, in sending out an invitation to attend a “Meet and Greet” for the Republican Garfield County candidates to be held at her home. The e-mail was apparently sent to a list of people who receive official Garfield County Sheriff public service announcements. Thus, Ms. McGinnis used her Garfield County Sheriff’s Office e-mail and a list compiled by that office to campaign for specific candidates. The Fair Campaign Practices Act prohibits all agencies, departments of any state or political subdivision thereof from using government funds for the purpose of the election of any candidate.The Garfield County public relations officer for the sheriff clearly violated the law. I know that we all make mistakes. Had Sheriff Vallario acknowledged that this action was improper, announced that it will be handled with appropriate action and won’t be repeated, I would agree that although this is a violation, it is being handled appropriately. But instead the sheriff defended the actions as being routine in his office. I am dismayed that public dollars have been used to support specific candidates running for office. This also directly affects me because the actions support my opponent’s campaign for district attorney. Additionally this action affects all candidates for public office as it calls into question how your tax dollars are being spent to protect your rights and the use of your taxes to enforce the law. This e-mail was sent using official e-mail addresses created by the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office with public dollars by a public employee during working hours. It was sent to a list compiled by the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office with public dollars. This action, which is clearly against the laws of the state of Colorado,appears to be condoned by the sheriff, the agency charged with enforcing the laws. They benefit specific candidates at the expense of our democratic system. This is clearly wrong and should not be tolerated. Sherry A. Caloia Glenwood Springs

Dear Editor: We at the Wilderness Workshop would like to thank the 300-plus folks who made our first annual Wildfest a joyous celebration of our common love of public lands.

If there were exposed rafters in the Third Street Center, folks would have been hanging from them at the July 23 Thompson Divide Coalition “emergency meeting” to address proposed natural gas drilling southwest of Carbondale. As it was, more than 150 folks squatted in the aisles, wriggled into chairs, stood in the back of the room and along the walls, and peered through the hallway windows and door to hear TDC representatives fill them in on the Houston-based SG Interests intentions to drill on their federal leases. A BLM representative told The Sopris Sun that SG’s applications will be available to the public for review before drilling can begin. Photo by Will Grandbois

Mountain Fair memories just keep building By Trina Ortega Sopris Sun Correspondent From sweet down-home memories (such as swimming in the ditch and eating kettle corn) to remarkable occurrences (including Leftover Salmon playing the gazebo and fireballs knocking out the power supply), Carbondale Mountain Fair has created countless special memories over the years. For Alta Otto, who grew up in Carbondale, it was the general feeling of freedom as she and her friends got to roam the park while mom Shelle deBeque volunteered selling raffle tickets. “In high school, we were just getting in trouble all the time during Mountain Fair. I just loved being at the park. As a kid, you got to run around and play; you really gained a sense of freedom. Your parents are there but you’re kind of on your own,” said Otto, who now works as the box office manager at PAC3 and volunteers at Mountain Fair as the Pie Judging coordinator. These days, she loves to see her middle school daughter hanging out at the fair with friends, roaming the park, playing in the ditch, getting food … all of the fun things Otto used to do when she was a little girl.

Organized by the Carbondale Council on Arts & Humanities (CCAH), the 41st annual Carbondale Mountain Fair takes place July 27-29, opening at noon on Friday and running through 9 p.m. Sunday. Thousands of visitors descend on Carbondale for the threeday festival that opens with a ground-shaking drum circle, features more than 135 arts/crafts booths and food vendors, and free live music. Proceeds fund CCAH’s programming initiatives, park concerts, scholarships and more. Tips from the beverage tent (aka, the beer garden) support local nonprofits that “staff” the facility each day. From stage design and setup to traffic control and contests, this annual “barn-raising” of sorts brings together volunteers from all walks, lending to a true community event and a good place to meet your neighbors.

looking back CCAH’s education and programming specialist Ro Mead describes her first Mountain Fair as her“introduction to Carbondale.”She moved to town in 1974, and in 1975 she and her partner, Henry, had a booth — with an orange silk parachute as their covering — where they sold pottery.

Chill Out

“I didn’t see him for three days,”Mead explained.“I had so much fun and met so many people; it was my introduction to Carbondale, and I’ve never forgotten it. I had so much fun that I didn’t bother working at the booth for three days.” Carbondale Police Chief Gene Schilling has two favorite memories. The first was the year that lightning hit a power pole just west of Sopris Park, sending what was described as a “fireball” along a power line and on to the park. “It was just an awesome display — that fireball rolling down the power pole. That’s one of my fondest, favorite memories because it was a very unusual thing,” Schilling said. It took a while to get power back after the lightning fried the electricity panel, and he and volunteers scrambled to get generators set up for the bands to play. Schilling’s other favorite memory is the year he first wore pink-and-black zebra stripe Lycra shorts. Schilling was a police sergeant under Fred Williams at the time, more than 14 years ago. People loved it; they thought Schilling was “just nuts” in his police shirt, badge, radio with black and pink zebra stripe shorts. (Curious? See a photo on the 41st

Mountain Fair Facebook page.) The free live music is a huge draw for all. Jeff Dickinson served as the entertainment director for several years and recalls bands such as Leftover Salmon and the String Cheese Incident among the greats to play Carbondale’s little stage. “Mountain Fair to me is about the music and seeing people you haven’t seen all year,” Dickinson said.“What’s fun about Mountain Fair is that they’re all unique. No mountain fair is the same. No matter if it’s the same director, the same board. It’s unique. Why is that? It’s pretty special.” Dickinson’s first Mountain Fair was in 1984, when he lived out of a van in Aspen and worked as a carpenter. He was with Priscilla (now his wife) and they were avoiding the summer heat of Arizona, where they attended grad school.

Today Finally, the Mountain Fair is a good chance to enjoy some rare edible treats, including Cajun, Greek, Pacific Rim, and Central American entrees. Carbondale middle-schooler Toby Meyer loves the corn FAIR MEMORIES page 5

Car stolen while owner watches, and waits By Lynn Burton Sopris Sun Staff Writer

A Carbondale woman watched someone steal her car from behind her house last Friday night and wants to know more than who the thief was. Leslie Johnson also wants to know why it took police so long to get to her house — which is about one block from the police station. “What if I were being attacked?â€? said Johnson, who lives in the 600 block of Colorado Avenue. Johnson told The Sopris Sun it seemed to take “a long timeâ€? for the GarďŹ eld County 911 dispatcher to actually dispatch a Carbondale police ofďŹ cer to her house. She said the dispatcher kept asking her questions such as “which direction is the car facingâ€? and others that didn’t seem relevant, while the thief was still within sight and had not yet driven off. “They (dispatch) should have immediately called the police,â€? she said. “He (the thief) stalled it two or three times ‌. Police should have been a both ends of the alley (blocking him in).â€? Johnson, who has lived in Carbondale for 32 years, said her dog, Toby, alerted her that something was going on outside at about 11:30 or 11:45 p.m. on July 20.“He was barking like crazy.â€? Then Johnson her heard car running. “It’s a diesel.â€?

When Johnson stepped out on her deck, two men ran away from the 2006 Volkswagen Jetta DTI. Before she could go lock the car, one man returned, got in and started the car again. Johnson yelled at the man, telling him she was calling police. After calling 911 and telling dispatch “my car is being stolenâ€? she added “the guy is stalling (the car) ‌ where are the police?â€? The standard-transmission-impaired car thief eventually made it down the alley and was gone — headed toward the Carbondale Recreation Center, which sits less than 50 feet from the police station. When a Carbondale police ofďŹ cer arrived, he and Johnson exchanged words over the length of time it took for him to get there. Police Chief Schilling said the ofďŹ cer told him there was a delay in the time Johnson placed the call and when dispatch notiďŹ ed the Carbondale police department. Johnson said the keys to her vehicle were on the oor because she had been moving work-related vehicles during the day.“It’s not typical for me to leave the keys in the car,â€? she said. In a letter to the editor in this week’s Sopris Sun, Johnson warned residents that Carbondale isn’t the crime-free town that it once was. Schilling responded that the crime rate is about the same as in previous years, although it does have its ups and downs.

NorthYSur continued om page 1 at age 17, “that's when I kind of knew that I was becoming serious about my singing.� Her work blossomed into a stint with the 18-piece Argentinian Jazz Orquestra, which played private gigs and events for the city of Buenos Aires. “It was a dream come true. I was so lucky to be introduced to all these incredible musicians,� Mendez said. “The band had a male singer that sounded just like Sinatra and me as a female singer. It was a blast. One of the

greatest learning experiences I’ve ever had.� In addition to the regular NorthYSur members, other musicians will join the band for its inaugural Mountain Fair performance: Ananda Banc (vocals), Jeff Herring (saxophone) and Janet Earley (ute). Terry Bannon will sit in for Tim Fox, who is out of town. For the full music lineup, see the Mountain Fair program in this issue of the Sopris Sun.

Fair memories continued om page 3 dogs, kettle corn, funnel cakes and homemade root beer. Meyer said his family goes every year, and he is ready for this year’s fair.“I’m really looking forward to Mountain Fair. I’m probably going to do wax hands this year. The music’s also really good at mountain fair.� He also loves hitting up the kids’ games, including the swinging ladder. His grandpa, Bill, from San Francisco, Calif., chimed in that his favorite memory was watching Toby sink a number of people in the dunk tank. “I’ve been to about 10 mountain fairs,�the elder Meyer said. “It’s wonderful. It’s kind of like an embodiment of the spirit of Carbondale. It’s so friendly and so low key. It’s so kind of up to date old-timey.� For the full schedule and a complete list of vendors, see the special Mountain Fair program in this week’s Sopris Sun or visit

Bork publishes in Turkey David Bork’s book “The Little Red Book of Family Businesses” has been translated to Turkish and published in Istanbul. “I’m delighted that ‘The Little Red Book of Family Business’ is now available in Turkish,” Bork told The Sopris Sun. “I’ve worked with more than a dozen clients in Turkey since the 1980’s. In fact, many of the tips included in my book came from lessons learned while working with Turkish families over the years, so it’s appropriate!” Bork, a Carbondale resident, is a leading consultant on family businesses, having worked with clients on six continents. One of Bork’s Turkish clients, Mustafa Koç of Koç Holdings (the largest group of companies in Turkey) was the impetus behind “The Little Red Book of Family Business,” Bork said. “The fact that Mustafa encouraged me to write this book makes its publication in Turkish that much more apropos.” Bork has made more than 200 trips to Istanbul in the past 20 years. He also writes a monthly column about family business for Capital Magazine. To learn more about David Bork, visit

Watch out Dear Editor: I recently had my car stolen right out my back door. I have lived in Carbondale for 32 years and I have never experienced anything like this. I know I have been way too relaxed and always thought that something like that would not happen in my small town. It turns out there is a lot of that going on in Carbondale and I have to say I was unaware. Sure I have heard about bikes being stolen and some car break-ins but not too much about car thefts, assaults, rapes and a rise in domestic violence. I watched the theft of my car take place while on the phone with police; the response seemed slow and to say the least I do not feel safe anymore. This will change the way we live in Carbondale and that makes me sad. I just want everyone to know about this incident so this does not happen to you. Lock your doors! (Please be on the look out for a grey 2006 Jetta TDI with Thule bike rack! Leslie Johnson Carbondale

The Crystal River is flowing at well less than a quarter its normal levels due to last winter’s low snowpack and this summer’s drought. As a result, river-rock islands such as this one south of the Redstone fire station are either expanding or becoming exposed for the first time in years. Low water levels are also creating prime conditions for river-rock pickers who poach “pancakes,” “round ones,” “bird eggs” and “baked potatoes.” Photo by Lynn Burton

Get the Facts About the Airport Master Plan Pitkin County and Airport Director Jim Elwood Invite You To Take a “Behind the Scenes” Airport Tour Call 429-2852 to make arrangements

Some Facts to Consider about the Airport Master Plan If the Airport Master Plan is approved, any new improvements, such as a new terminal, reconfigured parking or a second fixed base operator, would be evaluated based on market conditions, sound business practices, financial viability, and forecasted need. All improvement projects recommended in the Master Plan would be subject to approval by the Board of County Commissioners before an expenditure of any of the Airport’s enterprise funds may occur. Many proposed capital improvements in the Master Plan, if built, would be phased over time and involve significant community input each step of the way. If a new terminal is approved, the community and airport stakeholders would participate in decision-making on all aspects, including mass, height, square footage, building design and more. All improvement projects would be subject to local review as required by the Pitkin County Land Use Code. All projects that either utilize federal funding or require a change to the Airport’s Layout Plan would require an environmental review as mandated under federal environmental regulations, including, for example, the addition of a parallel taxiway or a new terminal building. Before any permits are issued, the Pitkin County Planning and Zoning Commission would conduct a review to ensure consistency with the Aspen Area Community Plan, West of Castle Creek and Down Valley Plans.
