about the cover While skiers were enjoying one of the best weeks of snow on the ski hill in April, Lee Cox was trekking in Nepal. She met up with the group from Adventure Consultants (founded by Rob Hall from New Zealand) in Kathmandu, flew to Lukla (at 9000 feet), and then started hiking. From Lukla to Everest Base Camp, everything is carried on foot, by people or pack animals. Nine days after leaving Lukla, the group arrived at Base Camp (17,700 feet), having 3 “rest days” along the way. Rest days entailed hiking to a higher elevation, and then returning to the same spot to spend the night at the same elevation as the night before, in order to acclimate to the elevation. Two days later, the group scaled Kalapattar (over 18,000 feet) where this photo was taken (on her birthday!).

Format Changes ThomasReuter Editor-in-Chief

RistoRante

editor@thesteamboatlocal. com In this issue of The Local you will notice a few changes. We have added more pictures, made many of the ads smaller, and printed fewer pages than we have in the past. All of this is part of an effort to provide readers with more of what they want, use less newsprint, and make the format simpler and easier to read. The drawback is that there will be fewer articles from your favorite writers, but we intend to make up for this by improving our website over the course of the summer and using it to publish lots of extra material that’s not in the print edition. Please let us know if you like these changes or if you have suggestions for making the paper better.

Almost every kid that has ever seen a big piece of construction equipment has wanted to climb aboard and start pulling the levers and moving the earth. There is something built into the human DNA that makes it instinctive for us to adapt our surroundings to suit our needs. In fact, it’s one of the defining characteristics of the human species. Animals rely on random genetic mutation to adapt their bodies to the environment in order to survive. Humans however, rely on our ability to think and use tools to adapt our environment to us. We make clothes to keep us warm instead of growing fur. We build houses for shelter instead of growing shells. We lay pipes to deliver water instead of running for miles to get a drink. And we invent and build gigantic pieces of earth-moving machinery in order to sculpt the earth and make our society possible. This is why man sits atop the animal kingdom and this is why everyone should experience the sheer awesome power of operating a 20 ton bulldozer. On Saturday June 6th, Ski Town USA

Lions Club, Dig This, and Wagner Rents will be offering every kid in Routt County the opportunity to satisfy his/her innate desire to harness the raw power of man and use it to bend Mother Nature to their will. Kids up to 12 years old will be taken for a ride on HUGE Caterpillar bulldozers, excavators, and loaders for the ride of a lifetime! Feel the earth rumble as you belch diesel into the air and split the earth asunder! All hail the greatness of man! Cost for the ride is free, but donations for Lions Club will be appreciated. Dig This is located on US 40 a half mile west of Steamboat 2 on the right side of road between mile marker 126-127. Look for the sign. Free shuttle rides will be provided from the transit center and food and drinks will be available on location from the Ski Town Lions. Look for the Dig This tent downtown during the Steamboat Marathon or call Dig This at 970-367-2172 for more information. (If digging up the earth offends your delicate hippie sensibilities, go ahead and sign your children up for lute lessons instead.)

Steamboat Sporting Clays LauraHedges

The Local • Steamboat Springs

For long time Steamboat Springs couple, Maureen and Michael Hogues, sporting clays is not simply about sharpening ones shooting skills, it’s also about educating community members and visitors on how to use a firearm properly. This is the seventh season the Hogues have operated Sporting Clays and Driving Range on their 120 year-old Three Quarters Circles cattle ranch outside Steamboat II. The ranch accounts for 1,100 acres of land with beautiful views of Mount Werner, Sleeping Giant, and “the girls” as Maureen calls her grazing cattle.

After years of membership with the Routt County Rifle Club, the Hogues decided that Steamboat needed a proper sporting clays course so they took it upon themselves to set up shop on their own land. Featuring old chair lift towers, Three Quarters Circles Sporting Clays and Driving Range was voted as one of the most unique courses by Sporting Clays Magazine a few years ago. “Sporting clays is like playing golf with a shot gun,” said Maureen as she explained the basics about the sport. “Walking from station to station you have different presentations.” On their promotional YouTube clip, Maureen is featured shooting clay targets and a smooth narrator’s voice says, “Sporting clays has been compared to golf, but when was the last time golf was this fun?” Then with a crack, smash, crack, smash, Maureen shoots out every target and the video pans to a romantic sunset at the ranch. Today the 12-station course is designed to accommodate those of all different skill levels. The traps that cast off the clay targets mimic different animal movements. According to Maureen, 90 percent of those who visit the ranch for sporting clays are from out of town and have come for various business conven-

tions, bachelor or bachelorette parties, or family vacations. “The best clients we get are the people from the cities who’ve never shot a gun,” said Michael. This is because the Hogues said there are many misperceptions and fears surrounding firearms. When people who are unfamiliar with them get a chance to fire away the Hogues said an appreciation is granted for the sport of shooting. “A lot of the time with women I’ve noticed that their Dad’s or boyfriends have given them a 12 gauge shot gun and the thing knocks the snot out of ’em ,” said Maureen. “So once I get women comfortable and teach them how to shoot they say, ‘Wow this is great! Can I do it again?’” The reason Three Quarters Circles Sporting Clays and Driving Range caters primarily to tourists is because of the costly nature of the sport. The Hogues are properly insured and have both been certified as instructors by the National Sporting Clays Association which makes overall costs of the business go up. With 26 automatic traps, it costs $40 for 100 targets, $20 to rent a gun, and $6.50 for a box of ammunition. “It’s taken people time to realize its worth the price,” said Maureen as she explained what goes into running a safe and functioning sporting clay business.

How Much is Tourism Worth to this Community? ScottFord

The Local • Steamboat Springs How much is tourism worth? This is a question that surfaces routinely. There are those who believe that there is nothing but tourism and everything should be done to secure more and more of it. There are those who think tourism and the plague are the equivalent. Like most things the truth, regardless of personal opinions, lies somewhere between these two opposite views. The answer to this question depends directly on who is answering it. Simply put we do not have a clue but a lot of folks spend a lot of time guessing. We gravitate to the guess that supports our viewpoint and reject those guesses that do not. What we seem to agree on the most is that there is little agreement. As a person who is involved with the economic numbers every day I am not sure I have a good and ready answer to this question. However, I invite you to join me once again on one of my knowledge quests. Over the next three issues of The Local I am going to do my very best to answer this question as an intellectually honest broker of data. I hope that at the end of this knowledge quest we will have an answer to this question. I challenge those who disagree to step forward and present their views based on logic and data. Before we begin the task of measuring we



need to put a few things into their proper context. For most of us, it takes money to live. We use this money to exchange for shelter, food, transportation, and services that range from health care to haircuts. The new money we receive during the year is defined as annual personal income. We get our personal income from labor and non-labor. Labor income comes in the form of wages/salaries/proprietor profits. Non-labor income comes in the form of investments and transfer payments such as social security and private pensions. When we buy our groceries nobody cares about the sources of our income. In the case of a retailer the merchant is only interested in whether we have enough money in the bank to cover the check; they do not care about the source of the money. So the “yard-stick” that is used to measure an economy is personal income. The economies from Dallas, TX to Steamboat Springs, CO are broken into 19 private industries. Every business (big and small) is identified with an industry sector. These industry sectors can be used to identify the sources

“Women might be able to fake orgasms. But men can fake whole relationships.”-Sharon Stone

of personal income. For example, this means that we know for any given year how much personal income the residents of Routt County are receiving from each industry sector. Next, there are about a half a dozen ways to do an economic analysis of tourism. Each way can result in a different answer depending on the question that the analysis is attempting to answer. For example, an economic analysis could be done to answer these questions: • A fiscal impact analysis would try to answer - “Will government revenues for tourism activity from taxes, fees and other sources cover the added cost for infrastructure and government services?” • A feasibility analysis would try to answer - “Can/should this project or policy be undertaken and what are the costs?” • A financial analysis would try to answer the question - “Can we make a profit from this activity?” For the purpose of this knowledge quest, I am going to use an Economic Impact Analysis that simply tries to answer this question: What is the contribution of tourism to the personal income of the region? Moreover, for simplicity I am going to define the region as the economic activity that exists within the borders of Routt County.

The source data I will use for this albeit quick-n-dirty Economic Impact Analysis will be from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. Although this will come, as a major surprise to many folks, there is no specific industry sector identified as “tourism”. It does not exist. What does exist are industry sectors that service the needs and wants of the folks visiting the area, i.e. tourists. These sectors include • Arts, Entertainment and Recreation • Accommodations and Food Services • Retail Trade The vast majority of the economic activity associated with visitors to Routt County manifests itself in these three areas. During 2008 (the most recent data available), these three industry sectors contributed almost $204 million dollars in labor source personal income. This represented 17% of the county’s total personal income from all sources. Here is where it begins to get a wee-bit complex. With the exception that our spending activities overlap into these areas as well. So the challenge becomes determining how much the “locals” account for. By answering that question first, we can arrive at a pretty good estimate of the direct spending impact our visitors have. That is how I see it! Next Issue: How much and where the local spends

MainStreet Steamboat Springs

Lincoln Avenue Reconstruction – Where Are Those Guys?

TracyBarnett The Local • Steamboat Springs

As I write this article, it is a beautiful

sunny Sunday, the first sunny day in almost a week. There are families on bikes or with strollers on the bike trail, thick as thieves. The snow of recent days is gone and the grass is begging to be mowed. It’s time to go downtown and survey the construction on Lincoln Avenue. I have been down in Denver for the past 5 days. I know, from the numerous phone calls and emails, as well as from the CDOT email telling me why, there has been no construction done since last Tuesday. The biggest question on everyone’s mind is WHERE ARE THOSE GUYS? The gist of the communications is the timing of the construction. It is obvious that they are not going to be done in time for the June 30 deadline. Now the questions are, how far will they get and how will it impact my business? If they are not going to get done, could they just quit when they get to 3rd Street and not start on the other side? Why aren’t they working when the sun is shining? Couldn’t they be moving dirt, even if it is raining? All legitimate questions….all with legitimate answers. It comes down to this: this work is being done under a contract with CDOT. It’s all about the money. It is a business deal that has a budget, just as any other business has, especially when it is big business. Scott Contracting won the job by submitting the lowest bid. They are from the Front Range, not local bidders who came in with a higher bid. As any businessman knows, the biggest overhead expense is labor. Unless you are the only employee in the business, you have wages, taxes, social security, and unemployment to pay. You watch your employees to make sure they are not milking the clock, sitting idle or checking Facebook on your nickel. If business is slow, you may send those employees home and work the register yourself. It is no different for Scott Contracting. The difference is, when Scott Contracting sends their guys home, it is to the Front Range, not to Steamboat II. They can’t mobilize their guys every time the sun comes out for a few hours. Perhaps that could have happened if the contractor was local and if CDOT was not obligated to take the lowest bid, but it didn’t happen. Scott must make decisions, based on the best information they have from weather sources, about when they can work and when they have to lay off. This past storm was predicted to be what it was, so they sent their guys

home. Anticipating the storm, they worked 12hour days, including Sunday. They don’t want to be here any longer than necessary, either. We want the road, when completed, to be done right. Scott is doing the best it can with really crappy conditions. The subgrade is so slimy when it rains (or snows) that the trucks just spin their tires trying to get over the humps of “crosswalks” left for pedestrians. I watched a front-end loader have to push one of those side-dump trucks over the walkway when the ground was too slippery. Yes, all these delays are hard on our local downtown businesses. Please help your friends and neighbors by taking the time to turn off of Lincoln Avenue, get out of your car, and buy a new shirt or have a margarita. The merchants and restaurants are participating in a promotion, Dirt Cheap Deals, which gives you 20% off your purchases. We want these businesses to survive and only YOU can help make that happen. Please put the inconvenience aside, park on a side street, and BUY SOMETHING. At this point it is too early to predict how much Scott and CDOT will get done before they have to close up the job and be gone for July and August. It is certain that they won’t get done with the whole job and they won’t get the promised bonus to do so. They will be back in September to finish up. It is not their fault. Blame Mother Nature who chose not to give us snow this past winter, but sees fit to make it up this spring. The good news is for the ranchers. They really need the water. Want to help? Have an idea? Contact MainStreet at 970-846-1800 or mainstreetsteamboat@comcast.net. Your participation would be greatly encouraged and appreciated. Next issue: Lincoln Avenue Reconstruction

Memories from the Past Part XI Dude Todd #7 Paul&EllenBonnifield

The Local â&#x20AC;˘ Steamboat Springs Last issue ended with Dude Toddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run-in with Andy Black who controlled Oak Creekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s night life. The only way Dude could confront Black with any assurance of success was with the support of the mine owners in the county. During the 1920s and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;30s the owners were the final law in the county. For several years Andy had a back room agreement with the town that the only liquor licenses issued were in buildings owned by him. Two operators of bars, Johnny and Matt, wanted to move across the street and get away from paying Blackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high rent and other kick backs. They asked Todd for permission. He told them, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sure go ahead, but first let me check with the Secretary of State about transferring the licenses to a new address.â&#x20AC;? The Secretary of State said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is fine, make the move.â&#x20AC;? So, Matt and Johnny moved. When Black learned of the deal, he threatened Todd with the promise, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get you.â&#x20AC;? At the same time, to increase and improve the water supply, Oak Creek planned to build and enlarge the ditch from Oak Creek (stream) to Trout Creek. Bids were called for. Stanley Larson was Steamboatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highway contractor and the first person to get a truckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license to haul freight from Denver to Steamboat

Springs. He wanted to bid on the ditch project, but he knew how things worked in the county. He came to Todd and explained his desire to place a bid. He did not think it would be honest unless Todd held the bid without saying a word to anyone until the night the bids were opened. Todd, being savvy, took the bid and the bond â&#x20AC;&#x153;on the quiet.â&#x20AC;?

Soon afterward a well-dressed man came to Oak Creek for a few days. He just stuck around town. He was seen meeting with Black. One day he came to the town office and introduced himself. He was hired to audit the books. Some leading citizens had complained about the corruption at city hall. Somehow, Todd had already learned the auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s identity and was ready for him. All the fice and books of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dd To to in e m ca The next day Black d that bid set were ha I ow kn ou â&#x20AC;&#x153;Y . or out do closed the .â&#x20AC;? in w ld and an ou up so Fred Harris w office space was ready.

knew the house wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t vacant. He went to the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home and asked him if he had a receipt for paying his water. The man produced it. Todd began looking more closely at the books and other water bills. He saw several houses listed as empty and no water bill collected. He began checking. Since he knew everyone in town by name, he simply went to the door and asked to see their receipt for paying the water bill. He discovered about $600 worth of unrecorded water bills that had been paid. This time Andy Black was innocent. Todd went to the mayor and found him very reluctant to act. Todd continued to probe. He believed the town clerk was honest. Then he realized the mayor and town board members worked at the Moffat Mine, and the clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband worked at the mine. The mine superintendent controlled their livelihood, and this was in the middle of the Great Depression. Todd had to be careful, because the superintendent was also his conduit to power and protection. In a very discrete way Todd continued investigating for more evidence. Dude had to find a way to expose the mine superintendent without him retaliating against the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elected officers, the town clerk, and himself. The break came when Todd found a much larger crime. Next time: Biting the hand that fed him.

Step Eight Dr. DawnObrecht The Local • Steamboat Springs

Step eight in 12 step programs, AA, NA, Alanon and over one hundred others, says, “We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.” “Harmed? Who have I harmed? Not me. I have never done anything to anyone, well, never physically hurt anybody. I don’t hit, push, bite or fight. And I never do anything mean; well, except when they do it first. I don’t shout or name-call; well, not usually, except maybe that time…but I was angry, so it doesn’t count; besides he deserved it. Well, yes, I had a glass or two of wine when he made me so mad I… but that had nothing to do with it. Alcohol never affects me and I’m always in complete control. It’s entirely his fault.” Sound like it might apply, at least a little, to you, echoing your thoughts? Sometimes we are unaware of the harm we do and it is not until later, perhaps at a more selfless time, that we understand how deeply what we do affects others. We human beings are very good at justification, retaliation and denial. Is there any chance you have ever done anything unkind, maybe even harmful to family? Parents, siblings, spouse, children? Few normal human beings could honestly respond in the negative. How about extended family? Friends? Coworkers, neighbors, strangers, anyone else? Ever behave rudely in traffic, in line in a store or anywhere else you are somewhat anonymous? Could you be one of the many people who put on a façade for the public? Are you not only dressed

perfectly, every hair in place when you are away from home, but also pretending, wearing the, “I am perfect and so is all in my life” mask? Do you save your biting comments, negativity, and controlling, passiveaggressive and vicious side for family? Would you treat your loved ones the same way if your neighbor, coworkers or friends were watching? Would you change anything about the tone of voice, the level of compassion or attitude if your neighbors or parents of your children’s friends were listening? Rethink how you treat those closest to you, as they are the ones we usually hurt the most. Of course, there are outright harms to consider: theft, cheating, dishonesty, and so on. Even if it is the fault of a cashier, accepting more change than you are due is dishonest, comparable to stealing. Small lies are still lies. Do you justify this type of behavior? Little omissions can also be damaging: not acknowledging someone’s existence, either in person or by not returning a call, snubs and rejections of any kind. All of this behavior harms the person committing the act (you) as well as the victim, but you, of course, have a rationalization for everything you do. If you should decide that there is a chance you have done something that hurt another human being, and you are willing to ‘fess up, deal with it and change yourself, then you are ready for this step. If you persist in believing you have never hurt anyone, go back to and through steps one through seven, special emphasis on step four. The cool thing is that the word, “amend” means “make changes, corrections, or improvements.” Since no human being can see himself clearly, this, like all the steps, requires coaching from someone who has done this and the preceding steps. Such a person, called a sponsor or mentor, can be found in twelve step meetings of any kind and often among professionals such as therapists, counselors, recovery coaches and consultants. Find someone who has done this step and with whom you are willing and able to work; make your list. There is no point in postponing this step; harm that was done remains until dealt with. Please note that step eight says, “…became willing.” It does not say that we actually MADE the amend, just that we became willing. Specifics on how, when and where to actually make the amend comes in step nine. Dr. Dawn Obrecht is the only MD addiction medicine specialist on the western slope of Colorado.

GUEST COLUMNIST FOR INEBRIATED INFORMANT

Advice to a Young Man on the Choice of a Mistress (1745). BenjaminFranklin June 25, 1745 My dear Friend, I know of no medicine fit to diminish the violent natural inclinations you mention; and if I did, I think I should not communicate it to you. Marriage is the proper remedy. It is the most natural state of Man, and therefore the state in which you are most likely to find solid happiness. Your reasons against entering into it at present, appear to me not well-founded. The circumstantial advantages you have in view by postponing it, are not only uncertain, but they are small in comparison with that of the thing itself, the being married and settled. It is the man and woman united that make the compleat human being. Separate, she wants his force of body and strength of reason; he, her softness, sensibility and acute discernment. Together they are more likely to succeed in the world. A single man has not nearly the value he would have in that state of union. He is an incomplete animal. He resembles the odd half of a pair of scissors. If you get a prudent healthy wife, your industry in your profession, with her good economy, will be a fortune sufficient. But if you will not take this counsel, and persist in thinking a commerce with the sex inevitable, then I repeat my former advice, that in all your amours you should prefer old women to young ones. You call this a paradox, and demand my reasons. They are these: 1. Because as they have more knowledge of the world and their minds are better stored with observations, their conversation is more improving and more lastingly agreeable. 2. Because when women cease to be handsome, they study to be good. To maintain their influence over men, they supply the diminution of beauty by an augmentation of utility. They learn to do a thousand services small and

great, and are the most tender and useful of all friends when you are sick. Thus they continue amiable. And hence there is hardly such a thing to be found as an old woman who is not a good woman. 3. Because there is no hazard of children, which irregularly produced may be attended with much Inconvenience. 4. Because through more experience, they are more prudent and discreet in conducting an intrigue to prevent suspicion. The commerce with them is therefore safer with regard to your reputation. And with regard to theirs, if the affair should happen to be known, considerate people might be rather inclined to excuse an old woman who would kindly take care of a young man, form his manners by her good counsels, and prevent his ruining his health and fortune among mercenary prostitutes. 5. Because in every animal that walks upright, the deficiency of the fluids that fill the muscles appears first in the highest part: The face first grows lank and wrinkled; then the neck; then the breast and arms; the lower parts continuing to the last as plump as ever: So that covering all above with a basket, and regarding to only what is below the girdle, it is impossible of two women to know an old from a young one. And as in the dark all cats are grey, the pleasure of corporal enjoyment with an old woman is at least equal, and frequently superior, every knack being by practice capable of improvement. 6. Because the sin is less. The debauching a virgin may be her ruin, and make her for life unhappy. 7. Because the compunction is less. The having made a young girl miserable may give you frequent bitter reflections; none of which can attend the making an old woman happy. 8. They are so grateful!! Thus much for my paradox. But still I advise you to marry directly; being sincerely your affectionate Friend.

Ever since neolithic times, religion and agriculture have been closely tied together. From the mother-earth goddesses to the sacrifice of Cain, faith and working the land have walked side by side since the first agrarian. Little has changed since those days of yore. Even now, the majority of our festivals and high holy days revolve around food as we dedicate ourselves to the feast, one of the most ancient of ceremonies. We relate to our celebrations, secular or not, by the dishes served: turkey at Thanksgiving, apple pie on Independence Day, ham at Christmas or Easter. Customary meals vary by region, but we all have our own saturnalia menu. Historically, our existence has been tied to the land and its seasons. With one eye to the sky and the other to the earth, the pastoral members of our society provide for us in crops and livestock. We give thanks for bounty and ask for grace in lean times. How, then, shall we praise the McNugget? How can we give thanks for something

that is not recognizable as food, merely as an edible, food-like product? Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;processed cheese foodâ&#x20AC;? something that cheese should eat? Is it really okay for supermarket-â&#x20AC;&#x153;freshâ&#x20AC;? eggs to be up to 30 days old? If the most holy of things we can do is to revere our selves and the world around us, how can we poison our bodies with preservatives that are the largess of a laboratory? How can we wring the earth dry with high-yield crops, only to leave it barren and infertile, stripped of nutrients? For those that believe God made us as the earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stewards, what are we really doing with His gift? Are we honoring the earth as best we can? Or can we build a little more forgiveness into our relationship with the earth, with what we have been given? In doing so, can we build a little more forgiveness into our relationships with one another? Community is the essence of what growing food is all about: coming together over a shared meal is one of the most elemental ways of building fellowship and uniting kin. As above, so below.

In the midst of the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression, Steamboat Springs launched its version of an economic stimulus package by tearing apart most of downtown for some sort of road project. And instead of awarding this multi-million dollar contract to a local construction company that is familiar with Rocky Mountain weather, it was awarded to a bunch of front-range nancy-boys with a pronounced aversion to nighttime, weekends, rain, and physical labor. For the past 6 weeks, downtown Steamboat has looked like a mid-1990s era Bosnian village, and the latest news is that the invaders plan to return this fall to rape and pillage the town again! To put this in perspective, the 1,390 mile long Alaskan Highway was originally built in 7 months through heavy forests and coastal rains. By the time Scott Contracting finishes in the fall, it will have taken them 14 months to pave 10 blocks. In the meantime, businesses are suffering, tourists are being driven away, and the town looks like a war zone. (I wonder if the government workers that created this mess are having their paychecks affected by it?)

Prepare for an exciting summer!

Immigration

LenaFranzen The Local • Steamboat Springs Change is definitely upon us and it’s shaking us up. Remember to breathe, meditate, spend time in nature, get bodywork and support from friends. We are coming into some exciting times this summer so fasten your seatbelts and get ready for the ride. May 20: On Thursday morning we are feeling tenderhearted, sensitive and loving. (Venus trine Chiron.) We also have the opportunity to do something new and exciting in our work and projects. (Uranus sextile to the Sun.) In the evening the Sun moves into Gemini. Which means we will want to socialize and explore new ideas. Maybe we want to travel and learn something new. The Sun will stay in Gemini until June 21, when it moves into sensitive Cancer. May 21: On Friday we might be feeling a bit confused and lonely. We are healing our heart and connection to Spirit. (Chiron square the Sun.) May 22: On Saturday we might feel a fear of failing and of not being able to cope with reality. We need to remember to have some patience in ourselves and in our projects. We might have to check the details and make any needed adjustments. ( Jupiter and Saturn in opposition.) May 23: On Sunday we are feeling very sensitive and emotional. We are going to need some nurturing and love. (Pluto in opposition to Venus.) May 24: Clear sailing ahead on Monday. We are enjoying peace and harmony. (Moon in Libra.) May 25: Tuesday brings more needed adjustments to our projects. Here we have to make sure we are not giving our power away to other peoples ideas and opinions. We have to do what is right for us. We need to do what is true to our souls call-

ing. (Pluto in hard aspect to the Sun.) May 26: We are feeling emotional, deep and dark today. Some emotional releasing might be necessary. (Moon in Scorpio square to Mars.) May 27: Today, Thursday, we have a Full Moon in Sagittarius. The Sun is in Gemini. This is a powerful Full Moon and it is important that we open our hearts and draw upon our inner recourses. We are all more capable and resourceful than we think. There is a new understanding and optimistic life philosophy coming in. Later in the day Uranus moves into Aries. Uranus will stay in Aries for 7 years. We can expect fast and brilliant ideas and solutions. We can expect a desire to break free from the old and outdated. We will all feel much more rebellious and feisty. Fast changes are upon us! May 28: We might be feeling a bit tired and doubtful on Friday. (Saturn in hard aspect to Mercury.) May 29: Saturday we are integrating the changes on an emotional level. (Moon in Capricorn aspecting Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto.) May 30: We might be feeling a bit tired on Sunday. But we are enjoying quality time with our friends. (Saturn going direct. Moon in harmonious aspect to Venus and Mercury.) May 31- June 1: We are feeling sensitive and a bit ungrounded on Monday and Tuesday. (Neptune turning retrograde and aspecting Venus.) June 2: We are healing our insecurity issues through finding our trust in life, on Wednesday. But first we have to feel our emotions fully. (Venus in aspect to Chiron.) For feedback and questions please contact Lena at lenasteed@comcast.net or 970-879-2444. www.lenahelaingarts. com. Personal Astrology Readings are on special for $59/hr until July 1.Astrology classes are starting in June.

TimSelby United Methodist church of Steamboat Springs I sit on top of a dirt hill which rises from more dry earth and barren ground. As the sun sets, the soft light of twilight allows the barren hills of Juarez to take on an unexpected beauty. Looking down the hill to the right I see the darkening streets of a poor squatter community. No electricity or running water finds it’s way to those who call this place home. People linger in the streets as kids play soccer and the occasional musician coaxes a tune from an old beat-up guitar. Looking to my left brings into view the bright lights and bustling highways of El Paso. Shiny buildings and large homes display an image of the comforts and abundance of America. I feel almost as if I am floating in space between two entirely different worlds. And between them… the border, the muddy waters of the Rio Grande. On either side of the river is fencing, barbed wire and the shadow of guard towers. I sit, on the other side of the border, and stare across at my beloved homeland. And yet, I feel a sense of “home” where I am. A sense of home that has come from the poor woman who used all the food she had to feed a wealthy group of foreign visitors. A sense of home that has come from praying alongside those in the church who have allowed us to sleep on the floor of their sanctuary. People who pray to the same God and hold within them the same hopes and dreams as those in our church back “home.” I have no sense of “us” or “them” as we share so much in common along this human journey. And then, I glance down once again at the border, the marker of separation. Looking up I see the stars beginning to appear in the evening sky….just beyond the silhouette of

the rough wooden cross that stands atop the hill. I sit with my back against the rusty corrugated metal that separates one land from another. The sound of helicopters overhead mixes with the roar of the waves that wash up on the Tijuana beach. Out in the sea dolphins jump and play as they make their way up the coastline, unaware that they just crossed a heavily guarded international border. I’m glad that I don’t have to stay on this side, that I can go home whenever I want. But I wonder about the people I have recently befriended. I wonder what it’s like to live on a hillside in a home made of chicken wire and cardboard; what it’s like to have a river of sewage for a front yard? My mind flashes to the man holding papers in his hands as his children stood at his side. The papers would allow him to cross over to the promised land. Except, N he could not read the papers. Except, that in his entire life he had never had any of the documents J the unreadable papers asked for. Except, that he could never come up with the money needed to T officially file these mysterious papers. He wasn’t U going anywhere. His only option would be to risk m his life attempting to become an “illegal alien.” “ Looking at his children, I could not help but won- 1 der about my own. What if, like his children, they a had to grow up on the hillside of no hope and no M possibilities? Would I risk it all for the possibility of them having a brighter future? I stand up and E lean my head against the border fence. My mind, A and my heart, wrestle with what it means to build f a wall between people. E I sit in my office in a church in Steamboat T Springs knowing that the issue of immigration s is far more complicated than I can understand. I have no answers, no agenda. I espouse no party, S no position, no ideology. What I do know is that F there are beautiful people here, and beautiful a people there. I hope we never forget that. S w t E b

DVD Review

Roger Clyne & the peacemakers

Ghost ranch

Fantastic Mr. Fox:

may 27th

Who would be better than Wes Anderson to make a beautiful spin off of a charming Roald Dahl novel? The deadpan humor of George Clooney and Bill Murray (voices of Mr. Fox and Badger) round off a very fun cast. Anderson’s “Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers (RCPM) are proof that the crazy, reckless, restless, swagquirky, non-stop flowing of rostrum camera technique makes the picture and gering soul of American rock is still burning a hole in the night sky...guitars blaze, quake and quiver, soundtrack fit together in a truly fantastic and stimulating manner. A rostrum drums slip, thud and thunder with killer melodies and hooks and the occasional reggae or mariachi rhythm laced through the middle to keep it all honest camera is a camera that films a moving background while the camera itself stays and interesting.” still. This in a sense creates a real life cartoon-esque experience. Of course The - Tom Jurek, Paste Magazine Fantastic Mr. Fox is a cartoon made to seem even more cartoony by this highly entertaining and flowing film technique. Clooney’s, David Niven-esque Mr. Fox, is Known for blazing innovative trails with the just one of the highly bizarre, stereotypical children’s book, anthropomorphized release of several past projects, the white-hot fourcharacters. All the other characters fit into presupposed, but charming animal some known as Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers is archetypes. The soundtrack fits perfectly with the thematic elements of tunnel at it again with the web-only release of Glow In The digging and chicken thievery. The film seems almost like a very funny video game Dark, a spectacularly sparkling live recording taped at Mexicali Blues in Teaneck, New Jersey in 2008. at times. However, it never becomes robotic and desensitizing, but instead keeps The project concept debuted February 2, 2009, and the viewer fully ensconced. So enjoy. continues for 14 weeks at the band’s website – www. HHHHH = Mr. Rogers worthy azpeacemakers.com, where fans can hear and watch an -xoxo Carney entire live show that captures the true spirit and vigor of RCPM. A new song (audio and video) debuts each of the 14 weeks. With the conception of its first ever “VivaCast”, the non-conformist rock-and-rollers successfully pioneered a revolutionary new way to create music and put their fans directly in the recording engineer’s seat with a voyeur view. The stunning result is captured on Turbo Ocho, the CD/DVD released in March 2008, which chronicles the amazing creative process of producing 8 new songs in 8 days. Each song was written, arranged and recorded in a day and upon completion, instantly uploaded to the internet, along with the accompanying day’s video log, for thousands of fans to hear and view. With Glow In The Dark and Turbo Ocho, Clyne and the Peacemakers have once again shattered old definitions of what is expected of a rock and roll band and forged their own path directly to what matters most – the fans. Fronted by Roger Clyne with drummer P.H. Naffah, lead guitarist Jim Dalton and bassist Nick Scropos, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers are the only independent band to debut in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Internet Sales chart for six consecutive albums, including two #1 entries. Clyne & Naffah enjoyed an accomplished stint with The Refreshments, the late-90s rock band whose cultclassic album Fizzy Fuzzy, Big & Buzzy produced the hit singles “Banditos” and “Down Together.” Clyne wrote and performed with The Refreshments the theme song for the hit cartoon King of the Hill. Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers stepped up to the plate in 2007 when the Arizona Diamondbacks, the band’s hometown World Series Champion Major League Baseball team, called on them to write a rockin’ Dbacks theme song. The “Dbacks Swing” is a homerun with Diamondbacks fans everywhere.

PS. I was trying to get a hold of Chuck Norris for film advice but dialed the wrong number and got f**king Mr. Rogers instead. Although a lesser deity, Rogers did Intermediate Sudoku Puzzles by KrazyDad manage to give me some rosy cheeked and nauseatingly pure pointers on film.

Where’s the Kandy Kush? by:Thomas Reuter

Ever since Rocky Mountain Remedies won the first annual Cannabis Crown event in Aspen on April 18th, Kandy Kush has been the popular buzzword in Steamboat and across the Colorado medical marijuana community. The Western Slope Cannabis Cup was held at The Gant in Aspen on April 17th and 18th. About 3,000 medical marijuana cardholders attended the event to sample and purchase cannabis from vendors, and to participate in seminars and talks about issues affecting medical marijuana. For the competition 140 strains were entered by 90 growers and dispensaries from across the state. A panel of 6 judges was charged with the task of sorting through 210 ounces of high-grade medicinal cannabis in order to determine a winner. Since each judge could not smoke all 140 strains, many entries were first eliminated from contention based on appearance, smell, and cured state. Once judges had eliminated as many as they could without smoking, they then launched into the task of sampling as many of the remaining entries as possible. After the sampling phase was complete, each judge wrote his top 5 picks down on a piece of paper. The final group was determined by tallying up how many times a specific entry showed up on a judge’s top 5. When the final

round of five had been determined the judges smoked again and after a highly-enlightened discussion amongst themselves, Kandy Kush was crowned as the winner. RMR co-owners, Kevin Fisher and Ryan Fisher, said that judging notes about each strain were not released due to the fact that the judges wished to remain anonymous, but they believe

Prize-Winning Kandy Kush that Kandy Kush stood out for several reasons. They describe the strain as a 70/30 indica/sativa blend that is very smooth and palliative with a powerful and euphoric feel. It has a classic and strong marijuana flavor, with a bit of spice but no fruit. It is fully dry after curing, yet it is pliable and sticky. The smell matches the taste, and the “flush is complete,” meaning that the taste remains the same from the first hit to the last. The buds entered in the competition were cultivated for Rocky Mountain Remedies by master grower Ray Thomas, who had kept a

single prized seed from a trip to California in his freezer. When he planted the seed, he knew it had a 50% chance of turning out to be a male plant (in which case it would not have produced competition-worthy buds), but luckily it turned out to be a female, and Kandy Kush was born in the Yampa Valley. After it was announced that RMR had been crowned the winner word got around fast. The following day the remaining inventory of Kandy Kush sold out from their store on Downhill Dr. Even though they knew demand would be skyhigh for the prize-winning strain, Kevin and Ryan decided to keep the price the same as before, although they did limit each customer to 1/8oz each. Rocky Mountain Remedies and Mr. Thomas are now working on growing new plants to replenish the local supply of Kandy Kush and also to supply it to the many other Colorado dispensaries that have requested it from them. It will still be another month or so before the strain will be available, but by the end of summer they expect to be able to keep it in stock continuously. They also have plans to cross-breed Kandy Kush with other strains with characteristic flavors in order to produce Grape Kandy and Lemon Kandy. Strain availability can be checked on RMR’s website, rockymountainremedies.com

The True Spotlight… Tony Counts The Local • Steamboat Springs

Then you realize that you know almost every story that they recite. Their jokes are not as funny and their quips are not as quirky as they used to be. When you acknowledge this fact does it make you want to leave them behind because you feel like they have nothing else to give to you and you have nothing else to learn from them? Maybe. Or maybe you found a little bit of home.

Calvin stopped going to school in the 8th grade? Just wasn’t for him…Now he’s a million dollar jockey. I have heard nothing but good things about his work ethic and dedication to his sport. Never heard anything about home schooling or returning to college to get a degree though….I’m just saying… What did you do on that 1 day recently when there was no playoffs on the tele? You who read the black know how inaccurate I am with predictions. So let’s just get this out of the way: NBA – In the East, aughhhhh damn you Celtics! Never wear greeen, GO ORLANDO!!!!!! WEST – I feel a little Nash coming on, with a side of Stoudamire please and Thank you LOS Suns…Final winner of the NBA- THE Suns in 7 games over the Subparman led Magic. NHL – I just don’t find enough time to skate. My satellite provider doesn’t supply my hockey needs, so I rarely catch a game. But it seems these San Jose Sharks are rather tenacious, and I believe they rallied to beat the Avalanche in the 1st round. I still find it difficult to cheer for any Philly team or Canadians for that matter. So let’s drop dollars on the Sharks to lift Lord Stanley’s Cup. Most important: You knew it was coming, now set your Tivo, or stop by my place to view some matches. WORLD CUP 2010, South Africa…! Oh man, this is it, the big one, the mother lode. Let me set the stage for you for just 1 match in particular. USA vs England; I know you have heard of this Beckham character…was supposed to come over to the States and “save soccer.” Well he’s getting paid for sure, playing occasionally, and was getting ready for another World Cup and blew a tire, an Achilles I believe. Now he is going to be an assistant on the England squad coaching staff. Do I have to say anymore….? I’ll get you the USA schedule next Local, and you start doing research on game times and decide which ones you are going to watch. Seriously, get ready, this is big time stuff people… And if you need a little local futbol to prep you, Steamboat Co-ed soccer has started, and you can catch us playing at Ski Town fields Tuesdays and Thursdays. And keep an eye out for the Steamboat FC men’s soccer squad matches. Sundays.. I’ll keep you posted with game times and locations. Right now I’ll say next match will be May 23rd, 1pm at…..Ski Town…. If I am wrong I’ll let you know. I’ll Holla, MEOWWWWWT
