Don’t Let Hip or Knee pain Keep You Down What do these locals and dozens of others have in common? They were all living with the debilitating effects of a degenerative hip or knee. Pain was causing them to miss out on doing the things they loved, and they decided to do something about it. They all had joint implant surgery with the advanced MAKOplasty® system, meaning recovery time was decreased. Now they’re up, not down. Up for skiing, hiking, horseback riding, and everything else they’d been missing.

Ask how MAKOplasty® can relieve your hip and knee pain. Call 970.925.4141

MAKOplasty ® is powered by the surgeon-controlled RIO® robotic arm system enabling advanced treatment options for more accurate hip and knee implant placement.

Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any hip or knee surgical procedures, including MAKOplasty.® Your doctor can explain these risks and help determine if MAKOplasty ® is right for you.

THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

CURRENTEVENTS

LITERATURE TOM REISS WAS SO captivated by Alexandre Dumas’ “The Count of Monte Cristo” as a young boy that at the age of 12 he dove into Dumas’ memoirs. There he discovered the French Revolution’s General Alex Dumas, the remarkable former slave he will bring to life at Paepcke Auditorium on March 19 during an Aspen Writers’ Foundation Winter Words talk. Reiss’ latest, “The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo,” won countless awards; critics praise Reiss for his meticulous and thorough research layered by an exceptional talent for storytelling. “I like to give people a whole new way of looking at the past,” says Reiss. Tickets for Reiss’ event are available from aspenshowtix.com or 970-920-5770.

Violinist Robert McDuffie performs in the final Winter Music Series concert Saturday night.

CLASSICAL MUSIC THE ASPEN MUSIC FESTIVAL and School’s final Winter Music Series recital of the season is this Saturday when violinist Robert McDuffie performs at Harris Concert Hall. McDuffie will perform alongside pianist Elizabeth Pridgen. The evening’s program spans three centuries of works, from Bach’s Andante from Sonata No. 2 for Unaccompanied Violin all the way to the theme from John

Williams’ Oscar-winning score from the 1993 film Schindler’s List. The recital will also include pieces by Brahms, Beethoven, Kreisler, Dvořák, Mozart, and Gershwin. But at least one thing is sure to remain constant throughout the varied program: “Robert McDuffie engages in the mutable narrative of the music, whether it’s Beethoven, Brahms, or Kreisler, and is able to immediately share its message with his audience,” says Asadour Santourian, the vice president of artist administration and artistic advisor of the Aspen Music Festival and School. McDuffie is an alumnus of the Aspen Music Festival and School and has been a frequent performer in Aspen over the years. He will return this summer to open the AMFS’ 65th anniversary season with a performance of Philip Glass’ the American Four Seasons, a work written specifically for the violinist. Tickets are available at www.aspenmusicfestival.com.

THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

with JOHN COLSON

On the road again in the first blush of springtime THERE’S NOTHING like a road trip to get the juices flowing fast and loose. I know, because I have just finished one quarter of a road trip from my home in Carbondale, Colorado to the East Coast and back again, with a stop on the way out, in Madison, Wisc., to hook up with my sister and brother for our version of the Magical Mystery Tour. We’re headed for the Maryland/ Virginia part of the eastern seaboard, a place where my sis and bro spent what probably were the best years of their lives, starting in the mid-1960s when we all were teenagers or nearly so and ending in the late ’70s, when we all began to realize that the world was not such a sublime place after all. For me, those years were a mixed bag of terror, splendor in the grass (and I mean that in every sense of the phrase) and an awakening understanding of how upside-down and money-mad our culture is. The terror, I should note, came from living in mortal dread of the majority of the teenage population of suburban Maryland, outside of Washington, D.C., who went by the collective name of “greasers.” Hoodlums, in other words, who traveled in packs and were known to beat the living hell out of anyone who dressed differently from them, listened to different music than they did, or simply were a little strange in general. Which, needless to say, I was. All of that. I was a collegiate-cumhippie with unacceptably long hair, a psychedelic taste in music and culture, and I smoked pot rather than drink beer. I was not their kind of people, and they let me know that with rather boring regularity — like, any time they saw me, anywhere, they would start yelling and charging at me with murderous intent. On the other hand, I had some great friends who felt, thought and looked the same as I did, and we banded together to fend off the marauding hordes and have our own kind of fun. Anyway, the trip is to check in with whatever remnants of that long-ago counterculture that are still around, at least those we can find, and touch base with our past.

The trip was a fine one, once I got out of the slushy mountain passes — the car still looks as though it’s been run through a mud bog. Hope I can get it to a car wash before we head east. Cruising through northeastern Colorado is always entertaining. First of all, the classic rock stations start to peter out quickly, and by the time I got even with Brush the only thing on the FM dial was country music, religious broadcasts and high school basketball. So I listened to the team from Brush demolish the Aspen Skiers in league play, for lack of anything better to do. I got to wondering, as I motored along in the Prius, whether my steering was failing, because the car didn’t want to stay on a straight line, kept veering off to the right. Then I saw a small, sparrow-type bird floating stationary above the right-hand shoulder of the road, beating its wings madly in a futile attempt to fly north, but not moving an inch. OK, the north-south wind was hefty, my steering was OK, and that birdie was in for a long day. As I moved along, the AspenBrush game having ended in dismal defeat for the Skiers, I started roaming the radio dial again rather than listen to the game post-mortem blather, and learned that God was still dominating the airwaves in that region. As if to punctuate that realization, a roadside sign declared, “I Trust You, Jesus,” as if that long-dead Jewish carpenter was still worried that he’d blown it and humanity had forgotten him after all. The rest of the trip was, in the main, uneventful. Pushing through Nebraska with that hard north wind trying to shove me off the road, staying at a hotel in Kearny (pronounced “car-knee”), I rose with the geese and headed east, under a veritable blanket of geese in flying chevrons, heading west as I drove the other way. Crossing the mighty Mississippi at Dubuque and driving northeast on U.S. Highway 51, I thought again to myself, “Yep, there’s nothing like a road trip to get those juices flowing.”

LEGENDS & LEGACIES

FROM the VAULT

by TIM WILLOUGHBY

Snowstorms put a damper on St. Patrick’s Day celebrations at St. Mary Catholic Church (left) in the 1930s.

ST. PATRICK’S DAY DINNER Highlights of my childhood calendar included St. Patrick’s

Day, not so much due to my Irish ancestors but because it was an annual Aspen celebration and fundraiser that dated all the way back to my mother’s childhood. For decades a dinner was held in the Armory Hall, now City Hall, along with a dance. Mother recalled the effort it took to put on the event each year. After cleaning the dining hall, volunteers carried dishes from the convent, a building between St. Mary Church and the rectory, across the alley to Armory Hall, and then up some of the steepest stairs in Aspen to the second floor where they cooked and served the meal. As with many events, cleanup and returning the dishes fell to a much smaller group of volunteers. What’s St. Patrick’s Day without potatoes? Peeling spuds prolonged social time and they topped the menu. The meat, carved by the men, received almost equal billing, but not, as my mother remembered from her many years of service, the canned beans of the 1930s and thereafter the canned peas. The dinner dance drew crowds from all over the county if the weather cooperated; when storms

kept the ranchers away, the event barely broke even. The evening’s appeal may have diminished for women and increased for men when the event moved from Armory Hall to St. Mary’s ground floor, where

ground floor, we all knew kid-sized hiding places. A basement below the ground floor housed the heating system. Although my father, who helped to rebuild the system around that time,

WHAT’S ST. PATRICK’S DAY WITHOUT POTATOES? PEELING SPUDS PROLONGED SOCIAL TIME AND THEY TOPPED THE MENU. THE MEAT, CARVED BY THE MEN, RECEIVED ALMOST EQUAL BILLING, BUT NOT, AS MY MOTHER REMEMBERED FROM HER MANY YEARS OF SERVICE, THE CANNED BEANS OF THE 1930S AND THEREAFTER THE CANNED PEAS. there was no room for dancing. When I was little I spent St. Patrick’s Day under my mother’s feet in the church kitchen. Too little to help and banned from touching the potato peeling knives, I played hide and seek and tag with the other children. Having spent countless hours in the various rooms of the

Mar ch 13 - Mar ch 19 , 2014

knew it well, I had no knowledge of it; particularly, I did not know that the stairway to the basement could be entered through a trap door inside a church closet. Apparently someone had opened that door to check the boiler while I was dashing from hiding place to hiding place. I ran into the closet and

disappeared down the steep stairs. When you are an impressionable child, religion carries many distorted messages. Hell was always described as “down below.” As the ground gave way beneath my running feet and I plummeted to the depths of darkness I knew where I was headed: an eternal destination with no happy endings. When I hit the basement floor, I briefly lost consciousness. I opened my eyes in the dimly lit room to see Father Bosch staring down at me. Completely disoriented, my mind hurt all over as much as my body. It took an enormous serving of mashed potatoes to revive my spirits. Tim Willoughby’s family story parallels Aspen’s. He began sharing folklore while teaching for Aspen Country Day School and Colorado Mountain College. Now a tourist in his native town, he views it with historical perspective.

1916

S T. M A R Y C A T HOL I C C H U R C H

“The Celebration of St. Patrick’s Day was some!” proclaimed the Aspen Democrat-Times on March 18, 1916. “Yes indeed, the ladies of St. Mary’s church and the Aspen Knights of Wolf Tone did themselves proud last evening. Were you out? If not, you certainly missed it — plenty. The doin’s started with a supper given by the ladies in the banquet rooms of Fraternal Hall — and it was some supper, too. Hot roast beef, mashed spuds, potato salad, cabbage, pickles, coffee, ice cream and cake, and all one could possibly eat, served in style and no waiting. The ladies were liberally patronized and netted it is said, over $100. Promptly at 9 o’clock the dance was started and the floor was crowded by the lovers of this healthy diversion when the Knights of Wolf Tone announced the first dance. It was ‘on with dance, let joy be unconfined,’ from that time until the wee small hours this morning. It was a happy crowd, a jolly time, a splendid dance.” This photo and more can be found in the Aspen Historical Society archives at aspenhistory.org.

GEAR of the WEEK

by BOB WARD

‘FLOAT’ YOUR WAY OUT OF DANGER THE DILEMMA As recent events have shown, traveling in the winter backcountry is risky, especially with Colorado’s notoriously unstable snowpack. Carrying an avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe has long been de rigueur outside ski-area boundaries, but these important tools are used for body recovery as often as rescue. There is a way, however, to significantly improve the odds.

THE FIX

WHY IT WORKS

The BCA Float 32 avalanche airbag

There are a variety of avalanche airbags on the market. Boulderbased BackCountry Access offers the Float in two sizes, 22 and 32 liters, for short day-trips or, for example, an overnight hut trip, and the packs are more affordable than many competitors. If the wearer is caught in a snow slide, a sharp tug on a ripcord in the shoulder strap will deploy a singlechamber airbag roughly the size of a laundry hamper or a beer keg. This extra mass serves to “float” the wearer on the surface of the moving snow. The main causes of avalanche deaths are asphyxia and trauma, and riding on the surface of the snow reduces the likelihood of both. Yes, the compressed-air cylinder and the airbag add weight — the Float 32 weighs 5.2 pounds — but isn’t your life worth a few extra pounds on your back?

GET IT

500

$

Starting at

Airbag packs run anywhere from $500 to $1,200, but BCA is on the affordable end of the spectrum at $550 (cylinder is an extra $175). Aspen Expeditions, Ute Mountaineer and Bristlecone Mountain Sports carry the Float, along with other brands at different price points.

WINEINK

LET THE FESTIVITIES BEGIN SINCE THE BEGINNING of time, well at the least the beginning of the time that man has walked the earth on two feet, there have been gatherings and festivals focusing on fermented fruits and distilled grains. Yes, the celebration of wines and spirits has a history that extends thousands of years. Here in the Roaring Fork Valley we are KELLY J. fortunate to have HAYES played a role in the continuation of this oh-so-human tradition by hosting a number of such events, including the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen and, more recently the Après-Ski Cocktail Classic. Classic seems to be the operative word here, imbuing both events with a sense of style and superiority. But if you dig deep enough in the Encarta dictionary you’ll find that the sixth entry for the definition of the word “Classic” is “apropos to the extreme degree, usually with a comic or ironic twist.” A definition that is applicable to both Classics indeed as attending both events frequently provide both the comic and the ironic twists to the extreme. Last week news came that the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen has already sold out of the allotted consumer passes for this year’s event, which will take place on June 20-22. That is the earliest sell-out for the event since 2007, marking both an uptick in the economy and a continuing thirst for what is the signature event of the Food & Wine era. And today marks the opening of the second annual Après-Ski Cocktail Classic, an event that has the potential to become a staple of spring in Snowmass while spilling into Aspen as well. The AS-double C as I call it (say that thee times fast following a Slopeside tasting at VUE in the Westin) has put together another impressive lineup that is the perfect after-ski activity.

Informative, fun and flavorful, the ASCC has already created an easy to digest format that includes grand tastings, seminars and dinners pairing spirits and fine foods. Joseph Lang, co-founder and executive producer of the event (working alongside partners Kim and Kevin Haasarud and Laura Albers) says the big change this year has been taking everyone outdoors for the après tastings. “Last year we were in the Conference Center, which gave the event a little bit of a trade show feel. This year working with the Westin we have been able to take the entire experience Slopeside on the VUE deck,” said Lang. “The seminars will now also be in the Alpine Springs Room where the old Brothers Grille used to be.” Seminars to see and taste include a visit from mixologist extraordinaire Jonathan Pogash, who will work alongside the Westin’s executive chef Ronnie Sanchez to create some magic with coffee and cocoa and some exotic spirits Friday at 2 p.m. Then at 5 p.m,, after you’ve been warmed up, Jimmy “The Iceman” Yeager will chill you back down with a seminar on his “Big F*#king Ice Cubes.” If you have had a cocktail at Jimmy’s, you know how fine ice can define a drink. And don’t forget The Aspen Times presentation on Sunday on the “Great Après-Ski Cocktail Pub Crawl.” An epic, interactive experience that lets “consumers” taste/rate Aspen’s best cocktails.

FOOD MATTERS FOOD MATTERS

IN GOOD SPIRITS MIXOLOGISTS AT THE 2nd ANNUAL APRÈS-SKI COCKTAIL CLASSIC SHARE THE ART OF PAIRING LIQUOR WITH FOOD A SUNBURNED NECK, throbbing temples, and a lone crumpled dollar bill in my pocket are three surefire signs that yesterday’s après-ski was a wild success. Thanks to a 50-degree bluebird afternoon —plus a daylight savings bonus — the Ajax Tavern patio was in full swing on Sunday at the golden hour of 4 p.m. Hostesses deftly rearranged tables AMANDA and chairs in an everRAE evolving Chinese jigsaw, servers scrambled to refresh libations, and our fearless DJ spun all the right songs with just enough bass. The crowd was young, old, athletic, and beautiful — a sea of ski pants, sunglasses, and smiles. “I wonder what the Champagne delivery to this place looks like each week,” remarked the Texan as our neighbors popped another bottle of Veuve. “THIS is why we come to Aspen every year.” Scores of wannabe Aspenites flitting between gondola plaza and Sky echoed this sentiment until sunset. Those of us lucky enough to claim residency replied coolly that this is what makes March here better than anywhere else in the world. What’s more fun than après-ski in Aspen? A boozy four-day celebration of our slope-side scene showcasing top mixologists from around the country, natch. Though only in its second season, the Après-Ski Cocktail Classic (ASCC) — which returns to Snowmass and Aspen on March 13-16 — has already been dubbed “the Food & Wine of the mixology world” by Sabato Sagaria, former food and beverage manager of The Little Nell and a Master Sommelier. Artisanal cocktails featuring more than fifty premium spirits, seminars and demonstrations by industry icons, free-flowing drinks at themed pop-ups, two grand tastings, and a 6-venue pub crawl contest on Sunday are all on the menu, but I was curious: What will everyone be eating to soak it all up? In my chats with professionals—

featured speakers and recreational researchers alike—one universal response emerged: anything goes. The notion that cocktails must be pre- or post-meal beverages is a relic of the past. “Cocktail pairing with food gets a horribly bad rap,” says Danielle Becker, general manager and chief mixologist at NEST Public House at Viceroy Snowmass. “People tend to shy away from it; wine and beer are so known as being complimentary and old school. I think it’s awesome, because with any dish there are so many flavor components that you bring out in cocktails.” Becker eschews archaic rules such as pairing steak with robust red wine or spicy dishes with effervescent pilsners. “I don’t care about the main spirit (or) the main ingredient; I always go for the other components,” she says. “If I’m having pesto pasta with artichokes, I want a cocktail, say, that’s going to complement the artichoke. Something with lemons.” Regarding a creamy tomato-based Indian tikka masala on NEST’s menu, “I go a little bit deeper, (to) that curry sauce we put on top of it,” she says. “I’m gonna complement it with ginger vodka.” Charlotte Voisey, portfolio ambassador for William Grant & Sons and host of a Saveur magazine-sponsored pairing dinner at Pine Creek Cookhouse on Saturday considers three main elements. “Generally speaking, the cocktail should not be too alcoholic, so as not to numb the palate; not too overwhelming in flavor, so as not to overtake the nuances of the food; and either contrast—offer acidity to a rich/creamy dish—or complement flavors found in the food.” Brooke Arthur of House Spirits Distillery concurs. Arthur has concocted an ambitious menu of “coursed cocktails” for her pairing dinner at Eight K at Viceroy Snowmass on Friday. Chef Will Nolan’s first course, prosciuttowrapped monkfish with fennel confit, meets The Sparkling Tuxedo, Arthur’s recipe blending Aviation American Gin, absinthe, maraschino

Mar ch 13 - Mar ch 19 , 2014

liqueur, dry vermouth, orange bitters, sparkling wine, and a lemon twist. “I believe that cocktails are meant to be used during a dining experience as mouth-drying, palatecleansing aperitifs and digestifs,” Arthur says. “When serving cocktails with food I integrate ingredients like Madeira and fortified wines, sherry of all varieties, and bitters including amaros.” One memorable home-run effort: Arthur’s dry sherry punch (gin, Manzanilla fino sherry, mint, lemon, almond syrup, and cucumber), served alongside Ma Po Tofu at the Wo Hing General Store, a nowclosed restaurant under the Charles Phan empire in San Francisco. “It made sense in the end without me even knowing it,” she recalls. “Sherry has been paired with spicy meats for centuries, spicy meats naturally work with cucumber, which has a cooling and calming effect.” On Friday, New York City-based beverage consultant Jonathan “The Cocktail Guru” Pogash partners with chef Ronnie Sanchez of Snowmass Kitchen at the Westin to explore coffee and cocoa in warm and chilled cocktails and desserts. “Food and wine pairings have always been trendy and popular,”

Pogash says. “But cocktail and food pairings? Not so much. Spirits, in general, are complex and hard to tame, therefore harder to pair with food. My approach is that of a culinary mixologist. I look at the bar as the extension of the kitchen: I try and take ingredients that work well in food dishes and translate them into liquid form.” Perhaps what separates bartenders from mixologists is simply an energetic spirit for the time-honored craft of combining booze. Voisey lists her other ASCC engagements with enthusiasm: serving a Reyka vodka cocktail at restaurateur Jimmy Yeager’s ice seminar — Do you know what a BFIC is? — representing Hendrick’s Gin during a panel discussion on the juniper-scented spirit, and participating in San Francisco’s Buena Vista Café pop-up during a Sunday morning pre-pub crawl brunch at Jimmy’s Restaurant. “We’re serving Irish coffees the proper way, with Tullamore Dew, the original whiskey of that drink,” Voisey says. “Starting St. Patrick’s one day early!” Amanda Rae is happy to work this weekend.

are — this weekend is the granddaddy of ’em all: the Great Après-Ski Pub Crawl (which serves as the crowning event of the weekend-long AprèsSki Cocktail Classic). A flashback to our youth, this upscale version of the traditional pub crawl brings participants to seven bars as they compete for bragging rights for this year’s “Best AprèsSki Cocktail.” The list of venues includes Jimmy’s Restaurant, Justice Snow’s, J Bar, Chefs Club, Chair 9 @ The Little Nell, and 39 Degrees; this year’s brands include Aviation Gin, Tullamore Dew, Averna Amero, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Trumer Pils, Stolichnaya, and Blue Nectar Tequila. And while we’ve seen all the drinks on the competition menu, we’re offering just one sneak peek here: the Celtic Flip, crafted by Clara Klein at Chair 9 @ The Little Nell. I have no idea what it tastes like, but as a girl of Irish descent and someone who’s not afraid to try things she’s never heard of (punt e mes? antica carpano?), I say “Sláinte.” GUNILLA ASHER DIDN’T MAKE IT TO THE BARS THIS WEEKEND, BUT SHE’LL SHARE ANOTHER FAVORITE DRINK WITH US SOON.

FROM ASPEN, WITH LOVE

ASPEN UNTUCKED

by BARBARA PLATTS

The Aspen vacation: How to survive being the hostess with the mostest.

WHEN FRIENDS COME TO TOWN THE INS AND OUTS OF HOSTING VISITORS IN ASPEN

VISITORS. WE LOVE THEM and we’re also intensely stressed by their presence. When they come here they expect the Aspen experience, possibly based on the competitions they’ve watched on TV during X Games or the scenes they’ve laughed at over and over again on “Dumb and Dumber,” or maybe even like the photos they’ve seen of Paris BARBARA Hilton and Mariah PLATTS Carey in the tabloids. Everyone has a perception of Aspen and a strong expectation to go along with it, and us locals are responsible for providing the perfect experience during their stay.

THE MUST-SEES Aspen is an historical town with many intriguing stories. Most people don’t realize that Aspen was once the country’s leading silver mining district or that the population used to be more than twice what it is today. You don’t need to bore your friends with the stories of the Ute Indians or the Sherman Silver Purchase Act, but

take them to grab a beer or a glass of whisky at Red Onion and the J Bar at Hotel Jerome. Both watering holes were built in the late 1800s and still maintain their original style. Plus, they’re fun places to hang out, far from the glitz and glamour of Prada or Gucci and closer to the true grit style of the Old West. Besides boozing it up in town, take a stroll through the West End neighborhood and a drive up Red Mountain. The large and beautiful houses will have your friends’ jaws dropping immediately.

THE MUST-DOS Get outside and get active, no matter the sport, no matter the season. The beauty in this town cannot fully be experienced without several hefty whiffs of fresh mountain air. If they don’t want to pay for a ski pass or a snowmobile tour, strap on a pair of snowshoes or Yaktrax and go for a hike. Once the sun goes down make sure to take your friends to some kind of show. We have two incredible music venues in this town. Both the Wheeler Opera House and Belly Up attract internationally known artists and they offer a unique and intimate

Mar ch 13 - Mar ch 19 , 2014

setting to watch these artists in. Even if it’s not a band you’re crazy about, it’s worth taking them just to see the theaters.

area looking for all of us. Luckily he tracked down a member of the group by last call at Justice Snow’s.

THE MUST-REMEMBERS

Drink water. Most of my friends are coming from L.A., New York, Boston or Boulder. Perhaps the sole thing those four cities have in common is that they are all below the elevation of Aspen. Water consumption is not just a suggestion, it’s a requirement. Remind your friends constantly that they’re elevated, and that they’ll enjoy their stay much more if they drink the aqua. One of the blessings and burdens of living in such an amazing town is that visitors are a constant. You hate them. You love them. And you hate to love them. They are showing up for a vacation and, unfortunately, we still have to live our normal lives. But we shouldn’t complain. After all, our lives are a vacation.

It’s easy to forget that we are locals and, in fact, not on a vacation with our friends. We want to do everything with them, from skiing during the day to partying at night. But don’t let your work suffer due to your hosting responsibilities. And, when you do go out, make sure all of your friends know how to get home. Phones die and people lose each other in the madness that downtown Aspen brings at night. Make a meeting spot or write your home address on their hand. Take it from me. I’ve had a friend be escorted back to my house by the cops after we lost each other in the black hole that is Escobar. I’ve had another friend lose the group right when we arrived downtown. He spent the better half of the night in cabs asking to be taken to the big house on Alpine Drive. Which does not exist, no matter what “Dumb and Dumber” says. Once he was kicked out of those cabs, he had to stroll the downtown

TIME TRAVELS HISTORIC PHOTOS OF EMMA PEEL BACK TIME

by PAUL ANDERSEN for ASPEN JOURNALISM

THE EMMA MOST OF US KNOW TODAY is little more than a blur while speeding by on Highway 82. An old brick storefront and a Victorian brick house, both within a stone’s throw of the highway, are all that remain of a once thriving trade business with local ranchers and the family that lived there over a century ago. Photos recently discovered from the late 1880s reveal Emma in a new light. They came from a relative of Charles Mather, the man who built those structures in the early 1890s when the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad (D&RGW) chugged up and down the Roaring Fork Valley and passed directly behind Mather’s store and home. The photos were mailed to Pitkin County Open Space and Trails administrative assistant Janet Urquhart after she contacted

a relative of the Mather family while doing research on an open space parcel. Included with the half dozen photos was a handwritten letter from 1943 describing the Roaring Fork Valley with blunt candor. According to the beautifully scripted letter, both Aspen and Basalt were “dead.” Italian immigrant farmers and ranchers had taken over the agriculture industry in the midvalley and presided over it with a strict work ethic. Glenwood Springs was the dominant municipality. Both letter and photos provide a rare glimpse of life in the midvalley and reflect the profound transition from boom to bust as fortunes changes for communities up and down the Roaring Fork Valley.

HISTORIC TREASURE TROVE Isabel Harvey, of Corvallis, Ore., is the widow of the only grandchild of Charles Mather. Urquhart’s research led her to Isabel in December while researching the history of the Emma open space parcel. “I was trying to research Charles H. Mather online and not finding much of anything except correspondence among people doing genealogy research,” said Urquhart. One promising lead turned up Isabel Harvey’s phone number. “As it turns out, Isabel doesn’t use email or the Internet, but I called her up and explained who I was and why I was calling. I was astounded when she told me her late husband was Mather’s only grandchild and that she had great old photos from the Emma townsite. We chatted for quite awhile and I filled her in on the present-day status of the buildings.” Those buildings were structurally restored in recent years by the State Historic Fund and Pitkin County Open Space and Trails. The photos to which Isabel referred had been stored in a footlocker of memorabilia belonging to her late husband, George Harvey, who passed away in 1985. “It was December when I called,” said Urquhart. “Isabel promised to dig out the photos after the holidays. I suggested she send us photocopies, then we’d figure out what we wanted and find a way to have them scanned in Oregon. Instead, she just mailed the photos. A big envelope arrived in January with these amazing, original photos inside. We were all pretty wowed.”

Photo from the Isabel Harvey collection show the first of two side-by-side brick buildings constructed in Emma; it housed a store and post office (this page and previous page). Other photos show the Mather family (opposite page), as well as the family home, then and now, and a letter to George Mather (cover).

THE STATE OF THE VALLEY — 1943 While the photos are compelling and rare because they capture a once rural outpost in the Roaring Fork River valley, the letter Isabel Harvey included in the envelope brings a fresh perspective to the Quiet Years era. The letter was written in 1943 to George Harvey, Isabel’s late husband and the grandson of Charles Mather. George was attending Antioch College that June, where he and Isabel met. He wrote to a Basalt resident, Mr. Ernest Gray, asking

Mar ch 13 - Mar ch 19 , 2014

about opportunities for summer employment in Basalt. Gray, whose father had worked for Charles Mather in Emma at the turn of the century, received the letter, hand-delivered by the local postmaster. Basalt was a very small town then, so Gray was easy to find through general delivery. The letter Gray wrote back was in a beautiful script. It dissuaded George Harvey from seeking employment in Basalt, but first recalled Harvey’s family.

“THE RIO GRANDE RR THAT THE STATION EMMA IS ON CONTINUES ONE TRAIN A DAY INTO ASPEN, BUT THEY DO VERY LITTLE BUSINESS, AND THE MINES IN ASPEN HAVING PLAYED OUT, ASPEN IS DEAD.” — 1943 LETTER BY BASALT RESIDENT ERNEST “I played as children with your mother Alice and with George (Harvey’s uncle) before they moved east. I remember vividly when Alice broke her arm and also remember accounts of George’s death by drounding [sic] soon after arriving in Connecticut.” The uncle died while ice-skating, apparently from breaking through the ice. Gray went on to describe the bleak economic condition of the local economy, first by recounting the revolving ownership of the Emma Store. “Since Charley left Emma that business has never prospered. The people who bought him out lost business rapidally [sic] and finally was glad to sell at a loss and get out. Then followed a long line of never very prosperous merchants or store keepers or what have you, and as near as I know the brick buildings Charley erected have stood empty, except for an occasional dance or farmers meeting, for some twenty years. “Charley, your grandfather, started in a small log building and builded [sic] a business that ran as high as eighty thousand a year. He drew trade, mostly from farmers in the valley, for many miles on each side of him. Then, too, Basalt was a prosperous town, Railroad Junction, of some twelve hundred people. He ran a delivery over here. The transportation facilities were either train or horse and wagon. The two R Roads ran up the valley. But times have changed.” Gray speaks to prosperous times in Basalt when the region was in a mining and farming boom driven by the silver mines of Aspen and the coal mines of Carbondale and Redstone. Charles Mather left his native Essex, Connecticut, where he was born in 1861, to come west in 1888. At that time both the D&RGW and the Colorado Midland had built tracks to Aspen. Mather started a thriving trade business but, following the Silver Crash of 1893 and a severe economic downturn, returned to Connecticut with his family in 1901. “The railroad that Basalt was on (Colorado Midland) discontinued service in 1919,” recounted Gray. “Basalt died. It has recovered somewhat, but no town can continue to prosper without a payroll. The Rio Grande RR that the station Emma is on continues one train a day into Aspen, but they do very little business, and the mines in Aspen having played out, Aspen is dead. Very few people live there anymore, perhaps four or five hundred. At one time it boasted twenty thousand. “Glenwood Springs, twenty-three miles down the valley, has continued to grow slowly. It is now around twenty-five hundred and draws most of the valley trade. The automobile has taken business from the small town to help build the larger ones larger. That is the case in this valley. Then again, there has been another great and gradual change – the People!”

ITALIANS TAKE OVER THE MIDVALLEY In a recent phone interview with Aspen Journalism, Isabel Harvey chuckled about Gray’s sociological depiction of the Roaring Fork Valley, saying it perhaps crossed the line of political correctness. Still, she appreciated the perspective he offered in his letter, which is why she included it with the photos.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF PIKTIN COUNTY OPEN SPACE AND TRAILS

“In your grandfather’s day,” wrote Gray, “the valley was settled by what we now call old time Americans. They came from all parts of the East and central West. Now they are all gone and Italians from Northern Italy, a big, blond, blue-eyed race of people, own every ranch in the valley with perhaps four exceptions. “They are a clannish, hard working, money-making and pinching, intelligent race of people. They are prosperous, some having dug fifty or sixty thousand out of farms former Americans lost on mortgages. They have good homes, good cars and are good pay, but awfully hard, close traders who are hard to do business with. They hire very little help and the whole family works as a unit and keeps their money at home. “I wish I knew where you could find a job, but in this valley there is nothing but farm labor, and it is possible you could get some of that if you were to wish it.” Gray goes on to suggest job opportunities in Glenwood Spring as a clerk, auto mechanic or cook, but Harvey took his advice and elected not to make the trip. It was many years later, on a family vacation with their three children, that Isabel and George Harvey returned to Emma for a brief visit, just to have a look at the buildings his grandfather erected over a century ago. “I knew George had an emotional tug there,” said Isabel.

VOYAGES

ESCAPE ARTIST | BOULDER, COLO.

by KIM FULLER

TAKE A BREAK IN BOULDER ONCE IN A WHILE in Boulder, you’ll wake up to what local resident Elisabeth Thompson calls a “powdered sugar doughnut day.” It’s a sight that’s just as sweet as it sounds. On mornings when seasons seem to collide, Colorado’s bluebird sky sets a vibrant backdrop for an iconic view of the snow-dusted Flatirons. The majestic rock formations surround the Chautauqua Meadow — an area that Kim Farin, communications manager of the Boulder Convention and Visitors Bureau, said is the “crown jewel” of Boulder’s open space system. Boulder is surrounded by more than 45,000 acres of undeveloped land that is owned by the residents. Farin said the city was the first in the country to start taxing itself to buy the land, and she explained how this became the basis for the healthy lifestyle Boulder is known for — hosting professional athletes and Olympians, an accomplished university, a strong natural foods movement and an entrepreneurial spirit.

Adventure upon arrival

Boulder’s microclimate can occasionally bring sunny, 65-degree days in the middle of winter, but don’t be surprised if you encounter a snowstorm through even the late spring. Pack a variety of clothing options — layers, specifically. Fortunately, the plethora of outdoor access is matched by an abundance of indoor climbing gyms and yoga studios, as well as culturally stimulating and family-friendly activities. There are also a number of boutique-style stops on the east and west ends of Pearl Street and a lot of curbside entertainment in between. Two mainstay theaters are known to

IF YOU GO...

bring big names to their small venues — downtown’s Boulder Theatre is an old building decorated in art deco style, and The Fox, on University Hill, presents shows with a retro-hipster style all its own. Also, The Dairy Center for the Arts has a new movie theater that features independent films in a unique and intimate setting. Art lovers should definitely hit Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, and for some family flare, hit up the only place in the state where you can see laser shows. Fiske Planetarium not only has a full slate of educational programs but also offers weekend-night laser shows, with timed musical themes such as Queen and Pink Floyd. Located on the University of Colorado Boulder campus, the analog star projector was recently replaced with an HD screen that surrounds the audience with a 360-degree view.

A Front Range feast

While it is truly a place to play, Boulder has progressively been making its mark on the dining scene. Renowned downtown spots such as Frasca Food and Wine and The Kitchen seem to have created an elite culinary framework for the area, while newer spots such as Cafe Aion, Boxcar Coffee Roasters, Cured, Oak at Fourteenth and Pizzeria Basta have kept the cafe and restaurant scene rolling. The Kitchen is the more formal spot of its three adjacent eateries, while Next Door takes on a more casual feel, and the Upstairs features an extensive European and domestic craft bottled beer list, as well as small plates and cocktails. Head Upstairs for Community Hour from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. for food and drink specials. Next Door offers Colorado craft beer pitchers wine specials. Live music is at Next Door on Wednesdays and

THE ST. JULIEN HOTEL & SPA 900 Walnut St., Boulder www.stjulien.com

Sundays from 7 to 10 p.m. Cherice Engel, marketing maven with Boulder’s Big Red F Restaurant Group, said clean eating is a food trend in the area, with inspirations from huntergatherer, or Paleo diet, themes that are weaving their way into menus. Even with freshie, farm-to-table movements staying pronounced in the area, Boulder’s selection of happy hours keeps the indulgence coming. Centro Latin Kitchen & Refreshment Palace offers an all-day happy hour on Mondays and from 3 to 6 p.m. every other day — plenty of opportunity to try some small plates and peruse their extensive cocktail list. “The new chef, Cade Beerman, has a goal to really drive Latin cuisine,” Engel said. “And Centro is really trying to own the name of ‘refreshment palace.’” Café Aion on The Hill is a cozy weekend brunch spot, and on the opposite end of the day, craft cocktails take the crown for a speakeasy-style finale at The Bitter Bar. Engel described The Bitter Bar as the perfect place for a nightcap cocktail, as well as a place with some of the best food in Boulder. “With an Italian-centric menu, Chef Slavatore is producing dishes that you wouldn’t even imagine in a bar,” she said. “It’s truly impressive. And the cocktails are still amazing as ever.” Stay in the cocktail spirit with a visit to 303 Vodka, offering distillery tours Wednesdays through Saturdays from 2 to 5 p.m. during hours of operation. Farin said you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the custom-built stills, the hand-stamped corks and the bottling area. “They’re one of the few in the country making potato vodka (gluten-free),” she said. “And all of the potatoes come from Colorado’s San Luis Valley.”

Also, Boulder’s microbrew scene is a hop haven for beer lovers. You can taste your way down the list (though they aren’t within walking or close biking proximity). Brew spots include Avery Brewing Co., Boulder Beer Co., Fate Brewing Co., Mountain Sun (and Southern Sun) Pub & Brewery, New Planet Gluten Free Beer, Twisted Pine Brewing Co., Upslope Brewing Co., Walnut Brewery, Wild Woods Brewery and more.

Stay awhile

Boulder is definitely a place you can visit again and again, since every season provides a unique perspective to the town, along with an ever-changing list of upcoming events and activities. After all is said and done, you’ll need a place to rest your happy head. The St. Julien Hotel & Spa in the heart of town not only offers the comforts and charm of a contemporary boutique hotel but also is right in the middle of the action. The hotel is set back just slightly on Walnut Street, which is just a stone’s throw from Pearl, and with a perfect view of those aforementioned, majestic slabs of mountain rock. Peter Walstra, general manager, said the aim of the St. Julien is to provide an experience that is luxurious, as well as approachable. Signature spa treatments in the on-site sanctuary, such as the St. Julien classic massage or the “Day of Decadence” package, may even make it hard to leave the property at times, but either way, guests can come and go to a home that feels not so far away from home. “Whether guests stay with us and enjoy live music from local musicians on our terrace or in the lobby, relax with a spa treatment made with mind and other herbs grown in our on-site garden or just enjoy our luxurious accommodations,” Walstra said. “We hope we are able to enrich each travel experience with a little Boulder flavor.”

by BOB WARD for ASPEN JOURNALISM

‘TRUE STORIES TOLD LIVE’ AT THE WHEELER WHAT DO A Japanese pop star, an Afghan refugee and a worker in Antarctica have in common? Well, not much, at least at first glance. But you can bet each one has quite a story to tell. And that’s the essence of a March 13 event that will unite them on the stage of the Wheeler Opera House. Since its inception in 1997, a New York-based nonprofit organization called The Moth has presented true stories, told live and without notes, to audiences far and wide. Recently the outfit has been growing vigorously with a radio hour, podcast and book — all designed to celebrate the art of storytelling and the raconteurs who bring those stories to life. Part documentary and part theater, The Moth will bring five storytellers to the Wheeler for a two-hour, spoken-word riff on the theme “On Thin Ice.” Each presenter will tell a tale that they lived themselves. According to senior producer Maggie Cino, the theme is literally appropriate to Aspen in midwinter, but also metaphorically broad enough to encompass a wide range of human experiences. “Each show we do is totally unique,” said Cino, speaking from The Moth’s offices in New York City. “We’ll rehearse the night before, but the order of the show isn’t decided until that day.” Some of The Moth’s storytellers are actors and professionals, accustomed to being on-stage. Some others are friends or acquaintances of people within the organization, with backgrounds or experience in theater or journalism. Still others are novices who come knocking with a compelling story to tell. Such was the case with Dori Samadzai Bonner, who first approached The Moth via the organization’s “pitch line.” “She actually called us and pitched this crazy story about how her family got from Afghanistan to the United States,” Cino said of

Samadzai Bonner, who will appear at the Wheeler. This particular yarn was such an epic, Cino added, that it was split into two narratives, the second of which will be shared in Aspen. Storytelling is arguably the oldest art form in the world, and The Moth presents its stories with little adornment — just a person at a microphone, with a time limit but also some room to improvise and let the story breathe. It’s intentionally un-flashy, to spotlight the story and the human who lived it. “If you’ve ever been a fan of Aspen Public Radio, Theater Aspen or the Aspen Writers’ Foundation, this will be that place where all three of those roads collide,” said Gram Slaton, executive director of the Wheeler. “And these guys are really good at it,

unlike you or me after a couple of drinks.” The Moth has been to Aspen before as part of HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, which pulled out of Aspen in 2007, but Slaton said the storytelling event was overshadowed by the big names and jam-packed calendar of Comedy Fest. “To actually bring it back to town and feature it on the kind of stage it deserves and really to honor it — that’s the kind of magic we really want to pull off here,” Slaton said. So where did the name, The Moth, come from? Having moved to New York City, poet and novelist George Dawes Green sought to replicate a storytelling tradition that he experienced in his home state of Georgia. Summer evenings on the porch were spent sharing stories,

and moths joined the party by flying through a hole in the porch screen. Like moths to a porch light, people are still drawn to well-told stories. Aspen Public Radio recently added The Moth to its programming calendar, with two slots at 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Sundays. No guarantees, but it’s possible, according to Cino, that one or more stories from the Wheeler stage could end up on the radio hour at a later date. And Cino, who worked with the performers to craft Thursday’s series of stories, promises a rich, intimate evening with a range of emotions from knee-slapping laughs to wrenching struggle. The stories aim to dissolve barriers, reveal truths and perhaps enlighten audience members. “It’ll be a little slice of a lot of life,” Cino promised.

The Moth will be on stage at the Wheeler on Thursday, March 13, with five different storytellers.

Maverick

Maverick is a fantastic American Bulldog/Hound mix. We think he is about 3 years old and weighs about 70 pounds. What we do know is he is super sweet and a real love. Everyone who meets him just adores him! He gets along well with other dogs and is fine with cats but really loves his people. This boy is very loyal, happy, well mannered, looks you lovingly right in the eye and did I say SWEET?, very sweet! Mav is calm in the house but can be exuberant outside. Although he is gentle natured, he could easily knock a small child down with his outdoor enthusiasm so better with bigger kids and adults. He is housetrained, not a big barker, fine in the house alone and gives great hugs! He loves his walks but does pull on the leash at first. Maverick can jump a 6 foot fence so can’t be left outside alone. He just wants to be with his people! He has been neutered, is current on his vaccinations and is micro chipped. If you are interested in this very special dog, please fill out an application on www. luckydayrescue.org or call Sarah on 970-618-4108. LUCKY DAY ANIMAL RESCUE OF COLORADO

NOTEWORTHY

‘THE SON’ “THE LAND WAS hard on its sons, harder yet on the sons of other lands,” writes Philipp Meyer in “The Son,” a masterful, gripping portrait of America’s Western expansion told through the lives of one Texas family. “The Son” braids together the stories of three members of the McCullough family, who first came to Texas in 1832 when it was still part of Mexico. The future patriarch of the family is the charming and canny Eli McCullough, eventually known simply as “the Colonel,” who was born in 1836, the year Texas became an independent republic. When Eli is 13, Comanches kidnap him, killing his mother and siblings. Eli’s toughness impresses his captors, who adopt him into the tribe. The Comanche sections are rigorously researched — the author drank buffalo blood and tanned hides — and vividly

rendered, and they form the heart of the book. Although the Comanches are often shown to be merciless, Meyer reveals the grace and humanity of this horse-centered culture, and we mourn along with Eli when they dwindle. Meyer weaves in excerpts from the diaries of Peter McCullough, Eli’s son, uneasy with the ruthlessness that surrounds him. “How two men from the same stock might be so different,” Peter muses, “my father likely reckons my mother snuck off for congress with some poet, scrivener, or other nearsighted sniveling half-man.” In 1915, Peter’s son, Glenn, is shot and wounded, and the perpetrator is believed to be a member of the Garcia family, the neighboring landowners. Back then, Texans were willing to kill Mexicans with little provocation, and the community’s revenge is swift and disproportionate.

The third narrative strand that brings the epic to the present day is that of Jeanne Anne, who takes after her greatgrandfather, Eli, in her toughness and practicality and becomes the proprietor of the McCullough land, cattle and oil holdings. She muses about the character of the new generation; Eli, she thinks, had “provided for all of them, and they’d become soft, they’d become people he never would have respected.” Meyer captures the inner lives of these characters while stripping the romance from the standard Western narrative. He portrays Texas as a place of Hobbesian mayhem, where life is often nasty, brutish and short, but even something as violent as a Comanche raid has a kind of unforgettable, bloody beauty.
