Spruce Up e Sun is year’s winner is … The Sopris Sun continued its Spruce Up The Sun cover competition this year, opening up the competition to original designs instead of limiting it to a contest in which students colored in a line drawing. Almost 100 entries were submitted, including a box full from art teacher Ami Maes, who delivered them just before deadline on Monday. The entries included many beautiful and creative winter holiday scenes. Some featured more traditional settings, such as a warm fire and other inviting home scenes. Others included favorite winter sports such as snowboarding or ice-skating. Santa seemed to be multi-talented: disco dancing, hot-tubing in hot cocoa and even dunking a basketball. This year’s top honor goes to Daniela Rivera, a sixth grader at Carbondale Middle School. First place winners in the various categories are: Cal Stone (pre-school), Emmet Garcelon (kindergarten through fourth grade), Gelena Amaral (fifth grade), Hayden Holbrook (sixth grade), Hannah Feder (seventh grade), Nanessa Montoya (eighth grade) and Ami Maes (adult). Judging such a competitive contest would not have been possible without the help of discerning eyes at the Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities. The Sopris Sun staff and CCAH would also like to thank all of the contestants for sharing their creativity and talents. It made judging a truly difficult task. Contestants may pick up their original artwork at The Sopris Sun office at 520 S. Third Street #35. For the contest category winners, please go to pages 18-19 and visit our website (www.soprissun.com). Thanks again to all who entered. Happy holidays and starting thinking now for the 2014 contest. Cover contest winner: Daniela Rivera, a sixth grader at Carbondale Middle School.

Yurt sleeping could lead to barns

Roping club brought rodeo to town in 1948 (Editor’s note: This column originally appeared two or three years ago and has been edited for length. It is reprinted at the request of the family in memory of the late Bill Fender). By Charlotte Graham Special to The Sopris Sun When it comes to summer fun in Carbondale, there are plenty of contenders for the title “best,” but it’s hard to beat the all-out enthusiasm of the Wrangler-clad cowboys and girls dusting up Gus Darien’s Arena come June. Thanks to a loose organization of local ranchers formed in 1948 called the Carbondale Roping Club, today’s Carbondale Wild West Rodeo has some pretty deep roots. My Wednesday “tea dates” at the Mount Sopris Historical Society Museum lead to fun discoveries every week! For one thing, the museum’s front door faces the field that was once the Carbondale rodeo grounds — now the Bridges High School building. This being the beginning of rodeo season, I just had to find out what the story was behind a big ol’ carved-wood plaque (an amazing work of art) that I see all the time in the museum that reads “Carbondale Roping Club.”

Bonanza Remember TV’s “Bonanza”? Remember how that show started? Four men ride up to the forefront, each astride a fine horse. That was the vision that popped into my mind when I read the names of the Roping Club members and saw, at bottom left, the Four Fenders: Bud, Harold, Ray, and William. (Can’t you just hear the music?) Hey. I know one of them! William told some good tales when I visited with him for my book Vol. 1 of “Memoirs.” Now in his 80s, Bill is also featured in a color photo in the museum with one of the founders of the Carbondale Roping Club, Bob Perry. The photo dates back to 1952, when they won first prize in the “head and

heel” competition in Tonopas, near Steamboat Springs. Bill still lives close by. So I got the history straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak. The fact that I was two minutes late was immediately noted by Mr. Fender as I entered his home. The fact that I had in my hot little hands the aforementioned carved plaque was all that saved my butt from getting booted out the door. “I had to take a roundabout way,” explained this quick-thinking scofflaw. As I handed the pilfered plaque over to him along with the first prize photo, the tiniest bit of benevolent light broke through from one eye. He nodded me to sit. Something told me he was a “horse whisperer” before there ever was dreamed up such a name. The first thing Bill asked me is if anyone has a photo of the rodeo grounds pre-World War II. So, readers, take note, if you’ve got a picture you are willing so show, please let me know. He’s not letting me forget his request! Bill then leaned back in his recliner as he read down the list of names. Which ones were ropers and which were donor members, he remembered them all. “Bob Perry and Darcy Brown were the ones who really got the Roping Club going,” Bill said. “We had saddle bronc, bareback, calf roping and steer roping. They furnished the stock, fed ‘em and all. With a little bull tossed in amongst the steer stories, Bill described how the first arena was made by a circle of cars. “I remember once when John McKay, on a white horse, went through those cars,” he recalled. He pointed to the wood fence seen in one of the photos, “While working for the Forest Service, I helped haul those aspen poles down off Sopris.” There was once a racetrack all around the arena where they had “walk, trot, run” races, Bill said, adding, “‘Shorty’ Wall always won!”  ROPING CLUB page 14

Fire district slashes budget; cuts services for 2014 Sopris Sun Staff Report Faced with a projected $1 million decrease in property tax revenues for 2014, the Carbondale Fire District will dip into its reserves to the tune of $700,000 next year and also cut services or programs, such as the Wildfire Patrol that puts crews on the ground to locate and fight fires before they spread. The cuts come after the Carbondale & Rural Fire Protection District’s five-member board approved a 2014 budget of approximately $2 million on Dec. 11, down about $1.2 million from 2013 due to a decline in property values. Those service cuts, in turn, were brought on after district residents voted down a mill-levy hike in November that would have funded services and programs at their current levels. Programs getting the axe include: • Public classes in CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation); • Certification and training programs for fire-fighters; • The free Automated External Defibrillator maintenance and testing program for owners in businesses, schools and other locations; • Funding for the non-profits CORE (Community Office for Resource Efficiency) and CLEER (Clean Energy Economy for the Region); • Recycling programs at the districts stations, which are located Marble, Redstone, Carbondale, Missouri Heights and the CMC turnoff. The district wanted to buy a new fire truck and ambulance in 2014 but those plans are on hold. District fire chief Ron Leach said the department will retain all 20 of its paid staffers, although one has quit and will not be replaced. The district also relies on 75 volunteers. Going into 2013, the district had about $1.5 million in reserves, so by the end of 2014 that figure is projected to be about $800,000. Leach said the district will probably go back to district voters next year or in 2015 to ask for a property tax hike. The property tax ballot question in November failed by about 55 to 45 percent.

Firefighters knock down blaze Sopris Sun Staff Report Dec. 15 at 6:37 p.m., the Carbondale & Rural Fire Protection District was paged for a report of a structure fire at 251 Bobcat Lane, (Redstone Ranch Acres subdivision) Redstone, according to a press release. Upon firefighters arrival, flames were visible outside the chimney chase. The first fire officer on scene worked with a neighbor and they were able to keep the fire from spreading until the first fire engine arrived. The fire had extended in to the framing, but firefighters were able to contain the fire to the chimney area. The homeowners were not at home when the fire began. A neighbor gained entry and released a dog from the residence. There were no firefighter or civilian in-

juries. No loss amount has been determined at this time. The cause of the fire is being investigated. The fire district responded with four fire trucks and 18 personnel. The fire was reported as being under control at 7:40 p.m., although firefighters remained on scene until after 9:30 p.m. “The Carbondale firefighters did an excellent job of containing this fire to the chimney chase and immediate area,” said fire chief Ron Leach. “The next door neighbor saved this house by his quick response. He kept the fire at bay with his fire extinguishers until the fire department arrived.” The Pitkin County Sheriff’s Department and the Red Cross also responded to this incident.

Led by outdoor education teacher Rob Hurley, students packed buckets with snow at the Delaney dog park (across from the school) for the past few days and built an S-shaped snake that would measure 50-60 feet if stretched tight and not struggling too hard to get away. Students also painted the snake with dyes. Photo by Lynn Burton

New York mag inks C’dale New York magazine’s on-line edition slathered Carbondale with loads of electronic ink in a recent travel article, mentioning everything from Town. restaurant and Fatbelly Burgers to PAC3 and the Art aRound Town program. Writer Nicholas DeRenzo leads off his article with “Award-winning public-art programs, inventive local cuisine, and a burgeoning sustainable design scene are bringing a contemporary edge to this former mining town just 30 miles down valley from Aspen.” DeRenzo follows with brief blubs under five subheads: Where to Stay (Avalanche Ranch, Euclid House and the Redstone Inn), Where to Eat (Town., the Goat and Fatbelly Burgers), What to Do (Art aRound Town, S.A.W., Carbondale Clay Center, Third Street Center and PAC3), Insider’s Tip (Carbondale Sk8 Park) and Odd Ball Day (take a day trip on the West Elk Loop to Paonia, kicking off with a stop at the Blend Coffee Company and wrapping up at the Black Nugget). Word has it DeRenzo planned to write about the Estes Park area last summer but Biblical proportions flooding forced him to switch his focus to Carbondale. To read the article, go to nymag.com/travel.

Waiting for the Coen brothers The Sopris Sun’s entertainment editor said he suspects there are more per capita Coen brothers fans in Carbondale than just about any other town of 6,000 located at an elevation of 6,161 feet, at the confluence of two rivers and with a single-screen Main Street movie theatre. Don’t ask why. He just has a gut feeling, and plenty of gut to back it up. Anyway, Crystal Theatre owners Bob and Kathy Ezra report that the Coen brothers current film, “Inside Llewyn

Davis,” will in fact come to town, although at press-time they are not sure when. “Inside Llewyn Davis” follows an early 1960s New York City folksinger as he faces two struggles: earning a living and living with his somewhat dysfunctional personality. Most film critics like “Inside Llewyn Davis:” • “If you love the Coens, or follow folk music, or hold fast to this period of history and that patch of New York, then the film can hardly help striking a chord. — Anthony Lane, New Yorker magazine. • “‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ is one of the Coens’ richest, strangest and most potent films.” — Andrew O’Hehir, salon.com. • “One thing’s for sure about this raw provocation from the Coens: Like the music, the pain runs deep and true. You’ll laugh till it hurts.” — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone • “Brilliantly acted, gorgeously shot and altogether captivating.” — Claudia Puig, USA Today.

Bicyclist of the Week Bicyclist of the Week honors go to the guy who was steering his bike along an icy road in Satank with his left hand, and ponying a second bike with his right hand. He managed to turn left into Carbondale Business Park without falling over, although it must be noted that for obvious reasons he did not signal. Had this cyclist signaled with his left hand while pulling a second bike with his right hand, he’d be a prime candidate for Bicyclist of the Year.

Thanks to the Thrift Shop of Aspen The Sopris Sun is pleased to announce the recent award of a generous $1,000 grant from The Thrift Shop of Aspen to support our youth outreach activities. We plan to use the funds to create two paid summer internships for local high school students who are interested in gaining experience in journalism and digital media. The internship application process will open in the spring and will be announced ... you guessed it ... right here in The Sopris Sun. In notifying The Sun of the award, Katherine Sand, the Grants Committee Chair, wrote “I would ask you, when appropriate, to let your readers know that you have been helped by the Aspen Thrift Shop — a large proportion of our granting takes place well beyond Aspen itself, but many people do not realize this. The more people shop and donate with us, the more we are able to help area non-profits.” So, next time you are in Aspen, stop by the shop at 422 East Hopkins Avenue and return the love in one form or another. Over 120 women volunteers make the magic happen there in the store and for dozens of non-profits throughout the valley. The Sopris Sun says “thank you!”

They say it’s your birthday Folks celebrating their birthday this week include: Frances Lewis and Shirley Bowen (Dec. 19); Don Butterfield, Tyler Thompson and Prema Trettin (Dec. 20); Paula Fothergill; Jerry Pluger, Carolyn Jackson and Jessica Hardin (Dec. 22); and Bill Lamont (Dec. 23).

Buddy receives Anschutz grant “I am very pleased to announce that the Buddy Program has been awarded a grant of $7,500 by the Anschutz Family Foundation,” said David Houggy, executive director of the Buddy Program. According to Houggy, the grant will be used to help fund the expansion of the Buddy Program’s core mentoring program in Carbondale. This is the first time that the Buddy Program has received funding from the Anschutz Family Foundation. The Buddy Program’s mission is to strengthen the community by guiding and inspiring youth through mentoring. “This grant from the Anschutz Family Foundation will give us additional resources to offer our Community Program in Carbondale, other mentoring programs, and Lemonade Day that we already offer there. In the community program we match a caring adult with a youth, aged six to eighteen, to provide support, guidance and friendship. Having the full complement of our programs allows us to address the needs of different youth in the best way possible. As with all of our programs, the community program is completely free to youth and their families.” For 40 years, the Buddy Program has been pairing qualified mentors with young people referred to the program. The roots of the Buddy Program come from a local mental healthcounseling director who recognized that many of his young clients could benefit from an extra caring person in their lives. In response to increased demand for services, the Buddy Program extended one-on-one mentoring through El Jebel in 1994 and through Carbondale in 2010. Over the years, additional benefits for participating youth have been implemented. Examples include paying for therapeutic counseling, scholarships for extra-curricular activities and continuing education, and connecting youth and their families with other agencies as necessary.

Roping Club om page 2 One cowgirl Only one woman participated in the roping club events: Nancy Perry Shaffer. Though back then she was just Nancy Perry — and she was only 15. “Nancy was the fourth in line of our children,â€? said her mother, Ruth “Dittyâ€? Brown Perry. “She loved to ranch, still does.â€? Ditty was born into the D.R.C. Brown ranching family in Aspen. She would later marry Bob Perry whose family ranched in the Steamboat Springs area. So it stands to reason that their daughter would be riding, roping calves and competing in rodeos at so tender an age. Two of Ditty’s great grandsons, Bruce Turnbull, and his brother Duncan, take part in the break-away calf roping and dally ribbon roping events, and have been practicing for the past several years. That’s at least one tradition that lives on in spite of the signiďŹ cant social and physical changes that have come to the valley over the past four to ďŹ ve generations. “When the school wanted the land for a football ďŹ eld, the rodeo grounds got moved to where it is today,â€? Ditty said. “They have a special place for the seniors to watch. Oh, it’s great fun!â€?

I’m shopping Carbondale.� Photo by Jane Bachrach

The Roping Club began with a few ranchers letting off steam after a hard week of ďŹ eld work. Rodeoing was a time for them to play, have a good time with friends and family, and ďŹ ne-tune their horseman’s skills. “Not to mention their ďŹ st skills,â€? added Bill. Rodeoing is much the same today — minus the part about the ďŹ sts. But like everything else, times were different then.

TRTC’s “e Fourposter”: a charming romp By Barbara Dills Sopris Sun Correspondent

Mike Monroney (left) and Nikki B. Montany (right) star in Thunder River Theatre Company’s “The Fourposter.” The play won two Tony Awards in 1952 and depicts 35 years of a marriage, from 1890 to 1925. Photo by Valerie Haugen for TRTC might fall flat with less deft treatment (jokes that have done exactly that according to online reviews of previous contemporary runs in New York). Michael and Agnes are plagued by common relationship challenges, some that resolve onstage and some that don’t, all played out hu-

morously in the arena of TRTC’s fourposter bed. So if, despite the inevitable rush of holiday parties, you still have a free night on your schedule this weekend, put TRTC’s “The Fourposter” on your list. It offers a most pleasant break from eggnog and tree trimming.

If you didn’t catch the opening performances of “The Fourposter” at Thunder River Theater last weekend, you have four more chances to see this delightful play. Performances continue this Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday with shows at 7:30 p.m. each evening. Written by Dutch born playwright, novelist and occasional social critic, Jan de Hartog, “The Fourposter” won Tony Awards for Best Play and Best Director (Jose Ferrer) in 1952 with actors Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn in lead roles. The two-character story spans 35 years of an up-and-down marriage — from 1890 to 1925 — but don’t be misled into thinking it’s just a period piece. Thunder River Theater remains true to the original script without making the story feel dated: for example, the consummation of the marriage on the couple’s wedding night is tenderly alluded to without cause for anyone in the audience to blush, yet the treatment keeps the scene relevant and believable. The message? Marriage hasn’t changed all that much in the past century. The single set is Agnes and Michael’s bedroom, lovely and timeless in its simple design, and director Mike Monroney, lighting/sound designer Brad Moore and stage manager Olivia Savard enhance it with clever adjustments to lighting and props that keep things interesting despite the set’s minimalist style. The bedroom, the bed, and especially the bedding almost become characters themselves by the end of the play. But what really carries the play are the lively performances of Monroney (Michael), a TRTC veteran, and Nikki B. Montany (Agnes), for whom this is a TRTC debut. The actors make up for what could in places be dull dialog with their skillful, often playful, timing and just the right amount of emotion. They pull off jokes that

Chamber thanks board members; Morse supports McKennis Sopris Sun Staff Report

2011- 2012, season and even after limited training had a strong season that included three top 10 results including 10th place in downhill at the Olympic test event in Sochi. In 2012- 2013 McKennis had her first podium appearance after winning what’s arguably the most challenging women’s downhill – the course in St. Anton, Austria. McKennis finished the season with a world rank of 10th, but as fate would have it she suffered another injury just before the season’s end where she shattered her right tibia plateau and fractured her tibia in a downhill crash in Garmisch, Germany.

morse sponsors Olympian Coldwell Banker Mason Morse is sponsoring alpine skier Alice McKennis, of New Castle, in her quest for a medal at the winter Olympics in Sochi, according to a press release. “Alice isn’t only a talented competitor, but also a warm, friendly, and humble person,” said Karim Souki, vice president of development at CBMM. “We live in a community made famous by its ski runs. As the longest

running real estate business in the valley, CBMM believes we have a responsibility to support that legacy. We are delighted and honored to help one of our local athletes compete on the world stage.” The Colorado native burst on to the scene in the 2009-2010 World Cup season with a 10th place finish in downhill in her third World Cup race ever. She then qualified for the 2010 Olympic team in her rookie season racing on the World Cup circuit. After an injury early in the season of 2010-2011, McKennis made her return to snow the next summer in preparation for the

Consumer Reports rates VVH For the first time, Consumer Reports has rated U.S. hospitals on how patients fare during and after surgery, according to a press release earlier this year. Valley View Hospital was among only 10 Colorado hospitals to receive the highest ratings awarded. The ratings include an overall surgery rating, which combines results for 27 categories of scheduled surgeries, as well as individual ratings for five specific procedure types: back surgery, hip replacement, knee replacement, angioplasty, and carotid artery surgery. The magazine’s surgery ratings are based on an analysis of billing claims that hospitals submitted to Medicare for patients 65 and older, from 2009 through 2011, and cover 2,463 hospitals in all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.

At Basalt thri stores, every donation finds a home S. Michael Jundt The Basalt Thrift Store, a local non-profit, now in its sixth year of business, doesn’t just stop at selling your donations in its store. After realizing the abundance of donations that get dropped off, executive director and founder Jullia Pratt was determined that the excess goods not go to waste. “It was really a moral dilemma,” says Jullia. “When we met with the other thrift and consignment stores in the valley it became apparent that we all get so much donated that there was no way it could all be sold through our stores. As well, there isn’t a warehouse large enough to accommodate the amount of goods and more just keeps coming.” Jullia continues, “The sad part was, there was no outlet to absorb the overflow of goods, and the majority was being sent to the landfills.” After researching the problem, Jullia located several facilities that specialized in transporting used goods to other countries for continued use. Within months, Basalt Thrift had its own textile baler. “The baler,” says Jullia, “condenses approximately 85 lawn and leaf size trash bags of clothes and fabric into a 1,000 pound bale. When we have 40,000 pounds of goods we forklift it all onto

a semi trailer and prepare to ship it overseas.” The loads are made up of more than just textiles. Basalt Thrift also sorts housewares and pairs together shoes, and accumulates books, toys, belts, backpacks, purses and more. “We’ve worked with the local school children in our “Soles for Africa” campaign,” says Jullia, “which ships thousands of pairs of shoes to select villages where the local kids can attend school but are required to have footwear. When children understand the impact they can have in choosing to recycle even one item it’s a wonderful eye opener for them.” Basalt Thrift is currently keeping in excess of 500,000 pounds of good, useable items out of local landfills each year, and recycling another 500,000 pounds that they send to salvage agencies. “We want you to know, says Jullia, “that the goods you donate to us get used, if we don’t sell Jullia Pratt them through the store we find them a home Basalt Thrift Store somewhere in the world, they are not simply thrown away.” You can learn more about Basalt Thrift’s organization by visiting: www.basaltthrift.org or by visiting their showroom located on South Side Drive in the Basalt Business Center.
