S TRATEGIES FOR C ONSERVING F UEL IN S OUTHERN C OLORADO It seems that drivers everywhere are talking about the increasing cost of gas and diesel fuel. Ideas on how to reduce this expense are everywhere and conservation isn’t just driving less or not at all, there are other strategies. Here are my favorite ten: 1. Adjust your driving habits:avoid jack rabbit starts, accelerate slowly and maintain a steady speed. Slow down gradually when you come to a red light, if you can do this and not stop completely before the light switches to green, this can also help to conserve fuel. 2. Every car has a highway cruising speed (usually around 60 mph)- use cruise control. By slowing down, you may see significant savings.

3. Keep you tires properly inflated and be sure your wheels are balanced and aligned. 4. Keep your vehicle’s engine running well: change the oil and oil filter when recommended and change the air filter every other time. 5. Use the air conditioner only when needed. It takes more fuel to run the AC, but use it on the highway as opposed to open windows which create drag and cut fuel efficiency. “Conserving Fuel” Continued Page 7 Contributing Author:

I-25 S PEEDWAY —W HAT A RUSH!!! As the sky darkened from a bright blue to a dark teal, I witnessed an amazing phenomena 4 miles north of Pueblo, Colorado. The crowd was a diverse mix of young and old, tall and short, smiling and quite serious. The event was all held on a quarter-mile track, paved, with concrete walls surrounding such. As the Sportsman Class car circled the track, with an American Flag trailing out the window, and the Star Spangled Banner playing over the loudspeakers, one could just feel the excitement, the nervousness, and the anticipation.

What I witnessed last Saturday evening at I-25 Speedway was a whole lot more than racing. Although it was rather exhilarating to see these cars travel around the track at of speeds up to a hundred miles per hour (pretty fast for the size of this track), and although it was utterly mind-boggling at the guts of the Figure-8 race-car drivers, it may have been even more enlivening to see the mass participation of small businesses and local consumers. Nearly every race-car (out of the seven classes) had the sponsorship of local businesses all over the State

of Colorado. Approximately 3,000 people of all ages, gathered here on this evening to watch these men and women race around this circle track. Businesses of all industries supported these racers (like Cortese Cattle Company and Wholesome Milk Products for Street-Stock #33 - Gary Cortese). And in that three hours of extremely loud and fast adventure, I felt our community at its best—in this wonderfully local and delightfully original American past-time.

H OLISTIC S KIN C ARE Summer is upon us and with the season comes an increase in outdoor activities and sun exposure. Currently, over 1 million new cases of skin cancer occur in the United States each year. Skin cancers occur three times more commonly than breast and lung cancers combined. Colorado’s high altitude and outdoor lifestyle make these facts even more disturbing. Most sun exposure, and eventual damage, occurs before the age of 18. Ninety percent of the visible signs of aging are caused by sun exposure.Though a suntan is considered glamorous and healthy, it is actually the first indication of sun damage. A healthy tan today eventually leads

to premature lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness and elasticity, uneven pigmentation of the skin such as age spots, and possibly skin cancer. Sun protection products are widely available. Look for products that offer broad spectrum protection. These protect the skin from UV-A rays, the rays that break down collagen and elastin and cause premature aging of the skin, and UVB rays, the rays that burn the skin. Look for products that offer an SPF of 15 or higher; products with an SPF higher than 30 often have high levels of chemicals that can cause a chemical burn in individuals with sensitive skin.

CATTLE SAVING THE LAND "We desperately need cattle on the land." Wow- what a shocking statement. Would you be surprised to learn a conservationist uttered these words? Allan Savory of Holistic Management International is responsible for this quote.

large, herding animals, concentrated and moving as they naturally do in the presence of pack-hunting predators, are vital to maintaining the health of the lands we thought they destroyed."

Cattle have been unfairly demonized in recent years as destroyers of land and emitters of greenhouse gases. Housing animals in a feedlot, where they are fed corn (an unsuitable feed for cattle), thus creating a toxic manure situation is an environmental nightmare. Cattle belong to the land- grazing animals should not be kept in a feedlot.

He continues, "In any environment, overgrazing and damage from trampling bear little relationship to the number of animals, but rather to the amount of time plants and soils are exposed to the animals." So, it is the continuous grazing, in absence of predators that destroys rangeland. Intensively managed rotational grazing, which mimics herd-predator interaction (shortening grazing time on each pasture), according to Savory, is the key.

We live in a dry environment in much of Colorado: dead vegetation breaks down so slowly and precipitation falls erratically throughout the year that even allowing land to rest, which means no animals and no farming will not effectively cycle nutrients, as "rest" does in a humid environment. Savory offers, "In brittle environments, relatively high numbers of

Savory has restored thousands of acres in Zimbabwe (a dry climate) guided by these principles. Savory calculates that increasing the organic matter in the soil by 1 percent on the lands under current Holistic Management (employing their animal management principles) worldwide will effectively remove 2.4 gigatons of CO2.

RAW MILK

Here's how it works: when cattle shear the top of a grass plant, the plant sheds as much root mass as it has lost in leaf mass. When these roots die, the soil's resident population of bacteria, fungi, and earthworms break this matter down into rich humus. These decaying roots, according to grazier Joel Salatin, are the biggest source of new soil organic matter. Additionally, the cattle's hoof prints provide water collection depressions and manure and urine provide rich nutrients to fertilize re-growth. Please visit www.holisticmanagement.org to see the truth of Savory's notion that we desperately need cattle on the land. At Larga Vista Ranch, we are dedicated to the HMI principles to manage our land from which we produce grass-fed beef, pastured-pork, and raw milk. Contributing Authors Doug & Kim Wiley

Let Your Food Heal You! Raw milk is a living food and has been found to be healing. For centuries traditional cultures have eaten raw and cultured raw milk products from cows, sheep, goat, camel, yak, buffalo, and reindeer. Weston A.

R ECYCLING U PDATE Here is an update with some awesome facts on Pueblo Recycles joint effort with Pueblo City-County Health Environmental Coordinators and our plastics recycling project. It all began last November on America Recycles Day, and since then, we have hosted bi-monthly events to collect plastics number 1 and 2. Keep in mind, these containers need to be cap-less, rinsed and sorted. That first day in November, we collected 1,220 pounds, at our last event in May; we weighed in at 3,800 pounds. There is no better way to sum it all up but Hurrah! Let’s remember though that this is only the beginning! It takes collective endeavor to create permanent change.

N AT URAL H ORSEMANSHIP My passion is to teach people how to communicate effectively with their horse by using natural horsemanship techniques. Yesterday one of my natural horsemanship students came to the barn and told me that after 5 years of living in a rented house, she finally called her landlord to replace the broken blinds in her living room. She said: “Petra, I learned from what you taught me about my horse. I need to expect more to get more. I really thought I did not deserve new blinds.” Learning how to communicate effectively with a horse has taught me to be more self

confident, more assertive and more willing to look at and accept other people’s views. Natural Horsemanship really is all about working, training and riding with “the horse in mind”. In order to build a relationship based on trust, confidence and respect, we need to trust, be confident and respect the horse’s dignity and spirit. This concept translates to our everyday life. When you become a natural horse-(wo)man, you and your horse’s life will change for the better.Stay tuned for more about Natural Horsemanship in the next issue of “That’s Natural” or visit my website www.mysunrisestables.com! Mention “That’s Natural” and get two lessons for the price of one!

Reflexology: An Ancient Healing Art Reflexology is an ancient natural healing art in which pressure is applied to specific areas of the skin, mainly the hands and feet. It can be traced back as far as 2300 BC in the physician’s tombs of the Egyptian pyramids and was also used in China, India, Japan and by Native American tribes. Based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet that correspond to every gland, organ and area of the body, reflexology is a non-invasive, natural therapy that induces a deep relaxed state. Through application of pressure to these reflexes, tension is relieved, circulation improved and your body’s natural

healing capacity promoted. For all stages of life, this healing therapy aims to help your body to maintain health, enhance your quality of life, meet specific health needs, and relieve stress in a very pleasant way. Conditions reflexology can help include, but are not limited to: Tension & stress, back/ neck/shoulder pain, headache, migraines, PMS, colds, flu, allergies, asthma, sinuses problems, hayfever, diabetes Reflexology aids to detox, balance and reenergize the body. As a practitioner at the Golden Flower Health Clinic, 251 S. Santa Fe, Pueblo, since 2001, Wendie Stauffer has over 25 years

experience in environments of healing. She may be reached by calling 542-9210 to schedule an appointment. When with a client, she relies on voice mail, so please leave a message and she will return your call.

C OMMUNITY S UPPORTED A GRICULT URE (CSA) Everything we buy in grocery stores today is shipped in from somewhere else. If you’re one of the lucky shoppers, you might live within 100 miles of the origin of some of your groceries. Others, like those in land-locked or low-agriculture states, probably receive groceries that have traveled hundreds or even thousands of miles before being unloaded, stocked, shelved, and sold. The pleasures of enjoying Mediterranean feta cheese, snacking on bananas in the winter, and chewing cherries in the fall are all provided by modern food storage, preservation, and shipment. The food in your refrigerator is probably several weeks old by the time you buy it, because it was picked while still a little green, shipped to a processing plant,

sorted by appearance, sprayed with a preservative to slow ripening, labeled, packaged and shipped to a warehouse. Another truck probably gathered up food for your local grocer’s order and drove a few hundred miles, dropped it off at your grocery store, and placed it in storage until it was needed. Your fruit or vegetable is not too much fresher than the frozen, sliced version sitting a few aisles down. Fresh food isn’t as fresh as we once knew it. In light of this, I have done some research that has lead me to various conclusions about our modern-day food supply that I will be sharing with you in the next issues of That’s Natural! In addition to these conclusions, I have been

on an avid search for solutions to the problems that we are finding. This issue’s suggestion for Livelihood Improvement—go to a local Farmer’s Market, or joining a CSA Program. There is one in Pueblo - Country Roots Farm. Check them out at www.countryrootsfarm.com, or Call them at: 719-948-2206

Agastache (Hummingbird Mint) Agastache, pronounced "a gas ta key" or Hummingbird Mint, is a plant group essential in the xeriscape garden. Native to the southwestern US and Mexico, most varieties are hardy and drought tolerant. As the plant matures, it becomes a hummingbird magnet and also attracts the Hawk Moth or Hummingbird Moth. The fragrances of flowers and foliage range from bubble gum to mint to root beer, depending on the variety. One can’t help but snip a few leaves while in the garden and breath in the sweet smell. When spring and summer blooms have faded, the gardener can depend on Hummingbird Mint to provide the garden with much needed color and fragrance. Combine with Russian Sage and Pitcher’s Sage (salvia

amounts of water. Varieties to try for your dry garden are ag. rupestris, which has a pale orange flower, ag. cana, with a fuchsia-pink flower, and ag. aurantiaca, sporting a darker orange bloom. The dry-land varieties can be found at Perennial Favorites in Rye or Brady’s Garden Center in Canon City. The box stores in town will normally have the higher water varieties later in the summer.

Growing agastache is simple. Lean, well-drained soil and full sun are basic requirements. Water deeply and infrequently but only if no rain has fallen for several weeks. If your soil is heavy clay, amend with a good organic compost. I suggest Eko (Eko is a Colorado company formulated for Colorado soils, accept no substitutes) or your own “home grown” brand, to insure your plants aren’t standing in water. These beauties will not tolerate “wet feet”.

If you have regular irrigation, try “Blue Fortune”, “Black Adder”, or “Korean Mint” as these varieties require higher

botanicals (peppermint, spearmint, sage, calendula) and essential oils (lemongrass, lavender, spearmint) to create healing body treatment. Why choose hand-made spa products? Because they are delivered to you right after they have been made to provide you with the best quality possible. No harsh chemicals, parabens, alcohol, petroleum or mineral oil are added to any of our products. Animal byproducts and animal testing are out of the question.

WHAT’S SO GREAT ABOUT A 529 COLLEGE SAVINGS PLAN? 1st – Exceptional Tax Breaks! Contributions are not deductible on your federal tax return, but can be deducted on your state tax return. Your investment growstax-deferred, and deducted funds used pay for college costs come out free of federal income tax. 2nd – The donor controls the account. The named beneficiary has no access to the fund. If your beneficiary decides not to pursue a higher education, you can change beneficiaries or use the money yourself. In that case, the accumulated funds would be subject to taxes and penalties. 3rd - There are no income limits to contribute to a 529 Plan. You can contribute up to $12,000 ($24,000 for married couples) each year without gift-tax consequences.

James C. Brumage, CLU®, ChFC®

Finally – With what the cost of higher education is today, it certainly makes sense to save for this expense on a regular basis. Any amount that you accumulate over the years will be of great benefit to your loved ones in the future.
