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

with STEWART OKSENHORN

FEAST THE HICKORY HOUSE has many ways to warm the heart. The service is consistently friendly. The barbecue is topnotch. They run specials constantly, offering deep discounts on rib dinners. But the place is at its best come each Thanksgiving Day, when the House becomes home for every Aspenite who wants to drop in — and they do mean everyone. Though the meal is free (donations for the Buddy Program are accepted, but not required), the Hickory House lets it be known that this is not just for the needy, or those who have no other place to go. It’s for the whole community. The food is traditional Thanksgiving fare, and it is delicious. Those who have never partaken might be missing Aspen at its most generous, and at its best.

The Hickory House hosts its annual Thanksgiving feast for all comers on Thanksgiving Day.

CURRENTEVENTS

“Nuthatch,” mixed media encaustic, by Cathy Schermer, is included in the Small Wonders group exhibition, opening with a reception on Wednesday, Dec. 5 at the Aspen Chapel Gallery.

CHORAL FOR 35 CONSECUTIVE YEARS, the Aspen Choral Society has staged performances of Handel’s familiar, beloved Messiah in the Roaring Fork Valley, establishing one of the great local traditions. Scores of singers would participate year after year; it became a training ground to teach people the art of choral singing. And hundreds of listeners would cram into various venues — St. Mary Catholic Church, the Wheeler Opera House, the First United Methodist Church in Glenwood Springs — to hear the sacred music George Frideric Handel composed The Aspen Choral Society will present in 1741, including the well-known its 36th annual performances of Hallelujah chorus. But it wasn’t a Handel’s Messiah this week, with dates in Glenwood Springs, Aspen and certainty that there would be a 36th year Snowmass Village. of the Messiah. Ray Adams, the heart of the Choral Society — founder, conductor, director, composer — died in March, and there was no guarantee that the organization would find a successor, or that it would even have the energy to do so. But within weeks of Adams’ death, the Choral Society let it be known that it wasn’t going anywhere, and a director was named: Paul Dankers, the talented and well-liked singer who has headed the music program at the Snowmass Chapel for several years. With Dankers and an energized board leading the way, the Choral Society is, of all things, in something of an expansion mode. This year, in addition to performances in Glenwood Springs (Tuesday and Wednesday, Dec. 3-4) and Aspen (Friday and Saturday, Dec. 6-7, St. Mary), Snowmass Village will be graced with the sounds of the Messiah (Sunday, Dec. 8, Snowmass Chapel).

VISUAL ARTS GOOD THINGS really do come in small packages at the Aspen Chapel’s annual Small Wonders exhibition. The art is, by design, small in scale and low in price. But the attraction is huge, with the opening reception typically drawing the gallery’s biggest crowd of the year. And the work flies off the walls; artists are warned to bring plenty of backstock. Small Wonders, curated by Ada Christensen and featuring 30 artists, opens Wednesday, Dec. 4, and runs through Jan. 5.

The Best Buys in the Area

Serene Snowmass

Never too early to reveal a snake in the grass HOLY PREMATURE whatever-it-is, Batman, they’re already talking about this Tea Party freak from Wisconsin as a possible presidential candidate in 2016! I know, Robin, it’s one of the truly depressing things about American politics, we are no sooner done with one election than we start fighting about the next one. Oh, why can’t we all just put the nation’s needs above our petty ambitions, and forget about all this foolishness? I imagine this conversation taking place as the Caped Crusaders are scaling a sheer skyscraper, standing nearly erect using nothing but a skinny rope, and somehow their capes seem to drape norm ally around their knees, rather than observing gravity by hanging straight out behind them. And I imagine that the coming presidential combat will in too many ways resemble a bad script for a truly abysmal TV sitcom — all fluff and ill-conceived humor without a trace of real, political substance to it. Beginning, I am deeply afraid, with Scott Walker, the current governor of Wisconsin who has never even heard of a workers’ rights initiative he didn’t hate, and who is the closest thing we have right now to a poisonous snake in the grass, preparing to strike. That’s because he’s the bought and paid-for lackey of the oligarchy that is close to total control of this oncegreat nation. The oligarchs already have neutered and curbed the U.S. Supreme Court, which gave corporations the same political and free-speech rights as real people with the Citizens United decision in 2010. The U.S. Congress is hopelessly mired in never-ending squabbles over everything, thanks largely to people like Walker, which basically ensures that they never get anything done of major consequence. And the presidency — well, it’s a shame, that’s all. Even when we elect a man who seems to be a straightshooting, progressive and humanistic politician, he turns out to be nothing but a dark rider on the stallion of hypocrisy, bent toward submission to the same oligarchy we’d hoped to send packing. Of course, even if President Barack

Obama had followed his own will instead of the urging of the ruling class, the fact that he’s a black man in a nation still steeped in the racial bigotry of a bygone century certainly hasn’t helped him much. And now we are feeling the first warming touches of the blistering political heat that is certain to characterize the presidential race of 2016. Walker, you may know, is a lightning rod for controversy, a favorite of the Tea Party and a shill for the oligarchy. He is a liar, too, as seen when he is confronted with questions about his remarks back in 2011, concerning the use of outside agitators to foment unrest and even violence among protesters fighting his moves to strip the bargaining rights of public workers throughout the once-great State of Wisconsin. He made those remarks when he thought he was talking by telephone with David Koch, the billionaire political machinist determined to usher in a modern era of feudalism, but he was actually talking with progressive blogger Ian Murphy. The conversation was publicized, Walker admitted at one point that he had considered bringing in outside agitators to discredit the protesters, but said he discarded the idea. Well, I guess he would say that, wouldn’t he? I mean, even Scott Walker is savvy enough to know that he should not appear in sympathy with the kind of tactics that helped bring down one president (remember Richard Nixon?) and would most certainly not play well in middle America. But he said it, he meant it, and the likelihood is that he would consider it again if his political foes seemed to be gaining strength. And, given his nature and his past acts, I believe he would do it, use phony protesters to cause trouble at public gatherings, then cynically use the trouble as a means for demonizing his opponents. Does that sound so far-fetched to you? Does that sound like the kind of a guy you want in the White House with his finger on that big, red button? ‘Nuff said.

LEGENDS & LEGACIES

FROM the VAULT

by TIM WILLOUGHBY

Jumbo, the largest elephant in America during the 1880s, attracted most visitors to the Barnum and Bailey Circus.

ASPEN…MAIN STREET… ELEPHANTS? PICTURE A PACK of pachyderms as they pass the Hotel Jerome on their way to a circus performance. The apparition of Washington Irving’s Headless Horseman could barely create as much cognitive dissonance as elephants on parade, at Aspen altitude. For about two decades circuses visited Aspen, and the excitement they generated was directly related to the number of elephants and the tricks they would do. A currently popular book, “Topsy” by Michael Daly, chronicles the competition between circus impresarios P.T. Barnum and Adam Forepaugh. The rivalry primarily focused on elephants: who had the first or largest elephant; which circus featured a baby or rare, albino elephant; who owned the biggest herd; whose elephants were best trained. By 1885 Barnum owned more than 20 elephants, including the gigantic Jumbo that he bought from the London Zoo, whereas Forepaugh owned Topsy. He appointed his son animal trainer, and the son abused animals ascribing to the (widespread at that time) belief that an elephant had to be beaten and poked with a sharp pole to make it learn. Apparently Topsy disagreed with the pedagogy: she killed a trainer; however, her dramatic execution enhanced her fame. Competition between these two

largest circuses continued until Barnum’s partner, Bailey, forged a merger with Forepaugh. After Barnum and Forepaugh died in 1890-91, Bailey owned controlling interest in both circuses, and alternated tours of the

excited crowds. On one stop in Des Moines, Iowa a crowd of 35,000 gathered to watch the elephants play in the river. Popular acts included dancing elephants, and The Pyramid (elephants stacked in a triangle with

EVERYTHING ABOUT ELEPHANTS EXCITED CROWDS. THE PYRAMID (ELEPHANTS STACKED IN A TRIANGLE WITH TWO STANDING ON THEIR HIND LEGS) STOPPED THE SHOW. West between them. The Forepaugh circus came to Aspen in 1896. The depressed times after the panic of 1893 had reduced three-ring circuses to one ring, but the chance to see a herd of elephants still brought in the crowds. The circuses typically stopped in about 130 cities, including Aspen and Leadville, over a five-month season. The 1896 Aspen stop featured ten elephants, including Topsy. Everything about elephants

two standing on their hind legs) stopped the show. The marketing of circuses launched large scale, American-style advertising. Promoters handed out fliers and hung posters. The two big circuses spread disinformation about their competitor and hyped their superiority with outrageous claims; but the most effective advertisement was the parade when the circus first arrived in town. Colorful circus wagons and dazzlingly

dressed performers caught everyone’s eyes as they lined up along the streets for a closer look. Always, the biggest draw was the most massive feature of the parade: the elephants. Even those who could not afford the show admission price got to see — and to spread the word about — the parade of elephants, elephants bedecked with banners that promoted local wares. By the 1890s circus owners realized their goal: the shows became whirlwind profit centers, the nexus of multiple revenue streams. In the 1880s, Forepaugh had gone so far as to allow pickpockets to travel with his circus so he could collect a percentage of their theft. Although circuses do not retain the cachet today that they held in mining era Aspen, when I imagine 10 elephants strolling up Mill Street I feel an even greater thrill than when I remember a decade of exciting Fourth of July parades. And I sleep comfortably in the knowledge that scarce Rocky Mountain oxygen did not trouble the beasts, no matter how far it had to travel from nostril to lung. As the Leadville newspaper reported regarding an 1891circus, “Forepaugh’s elephants never once complained of the altitude.” 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.

“ELKS HAVE GREAT time at annual Turkey Roll,” proclaimed the Aspen Daily Times on Nov. 26, 1908. “The Elks were in their glory yesterday afternoon and last night. The occasion was the annual Thanksgiving turkey roll and every Elk has an appetite for turkey and of course was there. The quest for turkeys continued until this morning. ‘Keno’ ‘lotto’ and various other games and the best of refreshments and a splendid turkey luncheon was enjoyed. During the festivities a fine 38-pound gobbler was among the prizes and interest as to who would be the lucky winner of the huge bird was great. Speeches, songs, dances, jokes and stories kept all amused during the games. Last night’s turkey roll was probably the best that has been held by Aspen lodge, both in point of attendance and interest. There are great many happy Elks this morning.”

GEAR of the WEEK

by CINDY HIRSCHFELD

PERFECT PUFFY: THE NORTH FACE THERMOBALL THE DILEMMA: You’re hunting for that perfect lightweight insulated jacket — warm, not bulky and quick drying if it gets wet. And it should easily compress to fit in a pack.

THE FIX: The ThermoBall full-zip jacket from The North Face.

WHY IT WORKS: ThermoBall is a new synthetic insulation from PrimaLoft that, for now, is being used exclusively by The North Face. As the name suggests, it consists of round clusters designed to mimic down and trap heat better than traditional “sheets” of synthetic insulation. I wore this jacket while fall camping and on hikes. Not once have I been cold, or too warm. It’ll also serve as a midlayer under my ski shell and when skinning uphill, I’ll stash it in my pack for the descent.

WINEINK

CHEERS, TO THE HOLIDAYS

LOCAL WINE EXPERTS SHARE THEIR PICKS FOR THANKSGIVING — AND BEYOND FIRST OF ALL, on this Thanksgiving Day, let me say thanks to you and anyone else who takes the time to read this column on a weekly basis. It is truly a labor of love and I am thankful to have a forum to discuss the world of wine. It is a pleasure and an honor to pen it each week. It is also a pleasure to live in such a great wine town like this, filled with impassioned wine professionals who, likewise, revel in KELLY J. the great bottles that HAYES they sell. Last week we asked Johnny, Luke, Andy and Fritz from Sopris Liquor and Wines, Four Dogs Wine and Spirits, The Daly Bottle and The Wine Cellar at Carl’s, respectively, for their suggestions on which wines to pair with your Thanksgiving meal. Sixteen bottles of American juice later, I think we had a pretty good list of go-tos. But I’m pretty sure that a good cross-section of the local community will be making their way off the slopes this afternoon (lucky dogs that you all are) and to an in-town emporium to pick up a bottle (or two or three) to take to the blessed event. With that in mind, we saved a bit of local knowledge for today. Below are the picks from the pros who work in three of our finest establishments. You know these guys and their shops and may even have shared a gondola with them this a.m. All moved here to ski and then got the wine bug. In fact, when I asked each of them, independently, what they were thankful for on this holiday, each looked at me with the same “are you crazy look,” shrugged their shoulders and said “Snow.” Like it was blindingly obvious. Anyway, with out further adieu, starting closest to the gondy and moving north, here are the pairing picks of the wine pros of Aspen.

ROGER CARLSEN AT THE GROG SHOP loves to sell wine. To

engage a customer, find out what they like, show them a few bottles, explain where they came from and who made the wine…. “And then

A S P E N T I M E S W E E K LY

F

they end up saying, “I’ll take some Scotch,’” he laughs. (And by the way, McCallan is the best-selling Scotch at the Grog Shop .) But for this Thanksgiving, Roger would like to turn you onto the following:

■ Klickitat Pinot Gris 2011 $18.99

This red GSM+ blend (Grenache/ Syrah/Mourvedre with a splash of Carignane) is the proverbial basket of fruit in a glass. Named after Sarah Gott’s dog, the Alakai is a fun wine and a bargain bottle.

■ Neyers 2011 Zinfandel Vista Lune Borden Ranch $26

Doug Margerum makes great wines in the hills outside of Santa Barbara but this Pinot Gris is sourced from both California and Washington state fruit. Soft on the palate, it is a lean, crisp wine that will pair great with the stuffing and the sprouts and potatoes. Not to mention the white meat.

While most folks say “Pinot” when talking turkey, I say Zinfandel. Especially great big fruity Zinfandel from the Sirra Foothills. The Neyers are wonderful folks who make great wines. This is no exception.

Big, rich, voluptuous. This is the kind of wine that people who don’t like California Chardonnay use as an example of why they don’t like it. But for the millions of folks who get it, the Wente Chard is a perfect wine for Thanksgiving.

to share his wine picks. Like the others, he will likely spend the day on the slopes before returning to his happy staff mid-afternoon to sell some wine before dinner and, of course, watch football

■ Wente Chardonnay 2012 $18.99

■ A to Z Pinot Noir 2011 $25.99

A lighter style Pinot from Oregon’s Willamette Valle this wine won’t overwhelm the turkey and has that beautiful, cherry-rose nose.

Down by the Post Office, BILL

REILLY AT ASPEN WINE & SPIRITS didn’t need much coaxing

■ AtoZ Pinot Gris 2012 $16.99

Like Roger, Bill likes the alphabetinspired wines from Oregon; only he selected the Pinot Gris rather that Pinot Noir. Lighter instyle unoaked, crisp and not too bitey (acidic).

■ Clos Du Bois Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon $22.99

■ Joel Gott Chardonnay 2012 $16.99

2011 is known as a difficult vintage but in some pockets, particularly the Alexander Valley, the fruit was sensational. This is a big wine for those who want something to chew on. Fine tannins will only enhance the meal.

Staying pure, another unoaked version, but aged sur-lies (a process where the wine rests on the “lees,” or residual yeast, to add complexity) for a creamy finish on the tongue and in the mouth.

JASON AND GARY AT OF GRAPE & GRAIN are looking at

the store’s 37th (or is it 38th?) year of impressing the Thanksgiving après-ski wine crowd. Together they suggested these four favorites. But don’t be surprised if they trade out as the day goes along.

■ Eleven unplugged 2011 Santa Ynez Valley $16

All steel fermentation is used by the Andrew Murray Winery in making the blend of blancs, Chenin and Sauvignon, so it is the fruit that will make its appearance at the table. ■ Kung Fu Girl, Riesling $11.99

The wine that made Washington Riesling sippable and made winemaker Charles Smith rich. A perfect wine for before dinner when the crowd comes a callin’. ■ Alakai Joel Gott 2011 $18

No v e m b e r 2 8 - D e c e m b e r 4 , 20 13

■ Maysara Pinot Noir “Asha”$44.99

“This is what I’m drinking on Thanksgiving,” Bill said. “A beautiful organic wine from 100% pommard Clones, like liquid velvet, smooth…” ■ Stelzner Claret 19.99

From a classic Stags Leap District property (now home to Odette, which was featured in this column recently) this blend of Cab, Merlot, Cab Franc and Petite Verdot is a complex wine for a not-so-complex meal. Multilayerd and smooth. Thirsty yet? I am. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving and be sure to toast the ones you love. Kelly J. Hayes lives in the soonto-be-designated appellation of Old Snowmass with his wife, Linda, and a black Lab named Vino. He can be reached at malibukj@aol.com.

FOOD MATTERS FOOD MATTERS

MILE HIGH MEALS

NO PRIVATE JET? NO PROBLEM. M&M CATERING DELIVERS TO COMMERCIAL PASSENGERS NOW, TOO AS ANYONE who has taken a flight from the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport knows, the process can seem suspiciously simple compared to other fly zones across the country. Drop bags at curbside check-in: two minutes. Breeze through automatic doors and step into the security line a few hundred yards away: 30 seconds. Chances are, you’ll be cleared AMANDA within half an hour, RAE and that’s a generous estimate. Arrive more than an hour before your departure, and you’ll likely spend more than an hour sitting in the tiny terminal adjacent to the tarmac. Skipped breakfast? Suddenly your trip turns tedious: options at the lone café kiosk are paltry and pricey, and snacks will not be offered on the plane. A hungry traveler is in for a long flight — even if it’s just to Denver. Those flying private, however, can order pretty much anything their hearts desire from a handful of local and franchise caterers that deliver meals directly to their cabins. “I’ve seen the notes that go to the caterers — they’re very, very specific,” says one pilot for a large fractional company speaking on condition of anonymity. (Really; for a topic as innocuous as What We Ate Today, private jet pilots and the Atlantic Aviation representatives who serve them are a nervous bunch.) “What size portion, no honeydew melon, low-carb diet — we get it all. I flew a lady from L.A. to Vermont. She was upset there was no caffeine-free Diet Coke on the airplane. She was really pissed. I thought, Who the hell is drinking caffeine-free Diet Coke at 5 a.m., anyway? But when you’re paying ten- or fifteen-thousand dollars an hour, you deserve to get what you ask for.” Requests run the gamut from fruit salad with extra pineapple and 10-vegetable platters to Colorado rack of lamb, caviar and magnums of Champagne. “People who have private jets are very specific about the yogurt they

F

want, the water they want, and how you prepare things,” says Mawa McQueen of M&M Catering & Cooking School, which has offered customized meal delivery to private jet passengers since 2008. “They don’t use the menu. It’s based on diet. My client is gonna say, ‘I need you to make me a Caesar salad, no croutons, this type of cheese.’ Some individuals like petit fours, beef tenderloin sliders, fresh Maine lobster. We are a fancy à la carte service. There’s no ‘no.’” A pilot for charter service Colorado by Air, who also asked to not be identified, estimates that 60 to 70 percent of his passengers have in-flight meals catered. “These are sophisticated flyers,” he says. “Every single one has seen an outrageous catering bill. Don Johnson (best known for his lead role on ‘Miami Vice’) always wanted a big thing of guacamole. He’s consistent, but that’s rare. You get the craziest things sometimes: the Matsu plate, big layouts of seafood that they don’t even eat….” Common folk flying coach, on the other hand, can’t get much more than mixed nuts or muffins at the Aspen airport. “People who don’t fly private, (are) punished” by the lack of dining options, McQueen says. “Aspen caters to the rich and famous, but the airport…there’s a disconnect. We have valet service to pick up your luggage and skis, but when it comes to food, it’s so basic. When you come to Aspen you want fresh, high-end food.” So, beginning Dec. 1, to kick off the holiday rush, M&M Catering is offering airport meal delivery to the general public. Though not quite as customizable as offerings for private jet clients — who pay a pretty penny to make super-specific demands — M&M’s commercial in-flight menu is extensive and suits all types of dietary requests. (McQueen, a former hospitality manager at The Little Nell, launched M&M in April

No v e m b e r 2 8 - D e c e m b e r 4 , 20 13

2006 as an in-home dining service specializing in intimate dinner parties and personalized meal planning and delivery, which honed her careful attention to detail.) For breakfast, choose from eight packages ($20) that include fresh fruit and a half-pint of fresh-squeezed orange juice: an egg, cheese and meat burrito with salsa and sour cream; quiche with spinach, artichokes, and Avalanche goat cheese; smoked salmon with bagels, cream cheese, boiled egg and savory accouterments. The Healthy Nut box assembles house-made granola, Greek yogurt, berries, and a blueberry muffin; fresh-squeezed juices — from açai and beet to Swiss chard, watermelon, and a rainbow of produce in between — are available by the half-pint ($8) and pint ($14). Sandwiches ($20), which transcend basic deli preparations — homemade roast beef with Boursin cheese and arugula; chicken salad with fennel and green goddess dressing; prosciutto with goat cheese and radicchio — are built on a choice of fresh bread, and served with a small Caesar salad, fresh fruit and a brownie. Salads ($22) also include those accompaniments and may be customized with a

protein of choice (tuna, salmon, shrimp, chicken): heirloom tomato, kale, Niçoise, Santa Fe, Quinoa Greek. Picky palates might explore Snack Boxes ($20), such as a Mediterranean sampler of marinated olives, eggplant “caviar,” stuffed grape leaves, hummus and pita, or simple platters of crudités, domestic and imported cheeses, charcuterie, jumbo shrimp cocktail, even chicken wings with spinach-artichoke dip or sushi and sashimi. But perhaps most unique are hot entrées: roasted bison with Bordelaise sauce, seared sea bass with lemon-parsley brown butter, seared filet mignon, spice-rubbed tuna steak, and half of a roasted freerange chicken with pan gravy. Each includes seasonal fresh vegetables, starch, bread and dessert, for $32. Kid-friendly choices range from mac and cheese ($10) and crudités with hummus and ranch dressing ($12) to fish sticks with sweet potato puree and green peas ($15) and petite filet of beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes and broccoli ($18). Vegetarians choose from six special meals at $28 apiece. McQueen is banking on volume, but between early-morning travelers who miss complimentary hotel breakfasts to passengers stuck in the terminal due to snow delays, she’s confident that the niche is there to fill. Orders may be placed via phone, four hours in advance, though it’s worth a shot to call last minute; M&M Catering is located just on the other side of Highway 82 in the Aspen Business Center, after all. “We need to change the mentality about how healthy food is for rich people — it’s not true,” McQueen says. “That’s what I’m trying to do (at) the airport. (My service) adds to how people view Aspen. You can eat healthy and not break the bank. If you want your toxin cleanse, I’m gonna bring it to you!” Amanda Rae only has to cross the highway to hop a flight. amandaraewashere@gmail.com

FOOD FOR ALL “I think it’s a phenomenal idea,” says an Aspenbased private pilot for a large fractional operator, who didn’t wish to be identified, about M&M Catering’s meal delivery service expanding to serve coach passengers. “I fly two-hundred- to three-hundred-thousand miles, commercial, to get to where the (private) airplanes are. (My company) always buys the least expensive ticket they can, center seat, US Airways going from Chicago to Charlotte to LA. It sucks. It’s the worst part of my job. It makes me happy to know I can pay 20 bucks to get a quality meal to take on my trip, and I don’t have to go to the food court. Airplane food is just so crappy.”

FROM ASPEN, WITH LOVE

ASPEN UNTUCKED

by BARBARA PLATTS

AN ORPHAN THANKSGIVING A HOME-COOKED MEAL FAR FROM HOME FOR A HOLIDAY deeply rooted in the idea of family, young people in Aspen often find it difficult to travel hundreds of miles home for Thanksgiving. Many must make due without the comfort and nostalgia of Dad’s cheese potatoes and Mom’s pumpkin pie. They take on the feast of gratitude with friends in what is commonly known as an Orphan BARBARA Thanksgiving. PLATTS To try to understand a little of what it’s like to be on our own for Thanksgiving, my roommate and I decided to cook a turkey a week before the holiday. Cooking a turkey likens to climbing Aconcagua in my book. I learned quickly that turkeys do not just appear out of thin air and gracefully land on dining room tables throughout the U.S. on the fourth Thursday of November. They are actually sold at grocery stores and take roughly 36 hours to prepare. Options are endless when it comes to the ways to prepare a turkey: brine, baste, roast, deepfry, crockpot, smoke. Pinterest has enough photos and recipe ideas to keep a person occupied for years. We chose brine, which

20

A S P E N T I M E S W E E K LY

F

involves soaking a turkey in a saltwater, maple syrup and garlic amalgamation for 24 hours before placing it in the oven, giving it a unique flavor — and, if you are domestically disabled like me, a kitchen soaked in brine. First, the turkey must be unwrapped, scrubbed, gutted, and trimmed of excess fat. After which, it can be placed into the brine for a good soak. Sounds simple enough, but when I submerged the turkey in the brine, I did not take into account the sheer mass of the bird so the liquid spilled all over the counters and floors. Somehow, I got the dish to the refrigerator, but the kitchen and I smelled of garlic for an exceedingly long time, despite my frantic use of soap and Windex. The next day brought more challenges, some of which were quite invasive to the turkey. I removed it from the brine and my roommate slowly loosened its skin to add seasoning underneath. Growing up, I was unaware of the martyrdom that occurred to flavor a turkey. I am not sure who suffered more, the bird or us.

No v e m b e r 2 8 - D e c e m b e r 4 , 20 13

When all was said and done, the turkey turned out to be a tasty success, but my roommate could not bring herself to eat more than a couple of pieces of our finished product. She had become too intimate with the turkey, and it was no longer appetizing for her.

The whole process of cooking this bird — from comparing sizes in City Market to following “How to carve a turkey” Youtube videos — gave me a great deal of respect for the cooks in my family who prepare this dish annually. It’s not just a meal. It’s an event. We were able to take a customary Thanksgiving entrée and replicate it far from home, which is precisely what an Orphan Thanksgiving is about. If you can’t be with family, take some time out of the week to do the same with a group of friends. Then enjoy one of the best times of the year in Aspen with great snow on the slopes, holiday sales, and a refrigerator filled with leftovers. Barbara Platts, a local marketing professional, writes about the “mountain millennial culture” that she participates in every day. Reach her at bplatts.000@gmail.com or follow her @barbaraplatts.

‘FEARLESS’ & FREE WHY CAROL WYMAN’S TALE IS WORTH TELLING by STEWART OKSENHORN

J

Says Dasa Bausova, who handles programs and exhibitions at the Wyly Community Arts Center: “I keep having to come up with new adjectives to describe the work. It’s mind-bendingly good.” Wyman’s acrylic on canvas board pieces are currently on display in the exhibition, The Art of Winifred: a retrospective, at the Wyly.

PHOTO COURTESY OF THE ARTIST

ohn Wyman considers himself a hairdresser, not a writer. Wyman, who has been styling hair in the Roaring Fork Valley for 32 years and has a long list of notable heads on his résumé, was basically thrown into a second job as a writer. His 2011 book “Against Her Will” documents the disturbing story of his mother, Carol, who was committed to an Illinois nursing home by her husband, and abused and overmedicated there, before escaping to Colorado, to live with her son. Wyman wrote the book — subtitled “A Cautionary Tale” — not because he had a great yearning to become an author, but because he thought people could use a warning about such occurrences. “It happens to anybody. When the government decides you’re incompetent, they take your rights away,” Wyman said. “That’s why the book’s important.” Even with the promising reception given “Against Her Will” — most of the reviews on Amazon’s website give it five stars — Wyman wasn’t seeking to make a second career of writing books. But the fact is, he has been given great material for a sequel. Carol Wyman, in her early 80s, is an emerging painter, causing a stir locally with an ambitious exhibition, The Art of Winifred: a retrospective, currently showing at the Wyly Community Art Center in Basalt. The exhibition’s opening earlier this month drew an overflow crowd of 300 (a more typical crowd for an opening numbers around 100) to the Wyly gallery to see the paintings, all made over the past four years. Traffic through the gallery has remained noticeably heavy since. “I immediately knew this was special, had a raw power that was so unique, a mastery and an originality,” said Dasa Bausova, who handles programs and exhibitions at the Wyly, and who thought the work was strong enough that she found a way to fit 32 paintings in a space that typically holds 20 works. “There’s been a lot of media and a lot of people curious about it.” John Wyman, a big, colorful, earnest man who walks with a cane, has overseen his mother’s late-in-life blossoming as an artist. Since she left the nursing home in Rockford, Ill. — she informed the staff there that she was going to do her laundry; had her son, Bill, pick her up; then arranged to be driven to Colorado — Carol has been living in John’s home near Basalt. John has furnished her with art supplies, and the two have worked together to come up with names for the pieces. But Wyman is quick to play down any role he might have played in his mother’s development as a painter. The fact is, Wyman, who had been out of contact with his

mother for several decades, at first attempted to steer Carol toward an entirely different kind of art. “I have a salon in my house. I couldn’t be as attentive as I needed,” Wyman said of his mother’s early days as his housemate, in midsummer of 2009. His solution was to get a piano, and set up lessons for his mother to keep her occupied. “But she got bored real quick. I had to think of something else for her to do.” Visual arts might have been a more obvious choice. Carol had made ceramic work, mostly functional pieces, in the mid-‘60s, and a few years later she had some success making works in stained glass, creating pieces for a few wine cellars on Red Mountain. But it was only when Carol proved indifferent to playing music that Wyman bought paint, brushes and canvases. Painting was a new medium for Carol, but she took to it instantly. Her first round of works were made on an easel, and when she began using a wheelchair, which made the easel too difficult, she started putting her canvases down flat on a table, turning the canvas as needed to reach all ends. Wyman was pleased at how occupied his mother was, but even though he was an art collector, he wasn’t sure how good the paintings were. “I liked what she was doing. It was humorous,” he said. “But it was busy work. I had no idea it was so grand.” Carol was prolific and hardworking. Wyman sometimes had to make her stop painting and remind her to eat. In photos of Carol at a canvas, there is that look of being completely lost in the work. Over four years Carol produced some 300 paintings, which Wyman took to stacking on the couch for lack of room elsewhere. “Not the optimal way to

IN HIS WORDS After church, we trekked on home in the blizzard. The house was warm and we had a few presents under the ficus tree that were sent by Bill and his children. Mom took a seat on her couch as I went to the kitchen to prepare dinner. She soon fell fast asleep, leaving me in solitude, which, for me, was always welcome. As I cooked dinner, my mind wandered back to Mother’s Day and how my father had prevented Mom from being with her children and grandchildren. It just broke my heart when I thought about it and that it didn’t have to be this way. She must feel like a foreigner in a strange land in Colorado. She should be in her own home back in Rockford, doing her thing for Christmas, but that was just not to be. Instead, she had fallen asleep on the couch in her fancy dress at the house of her estranged son, a man she hardly knew, but felt safe with. This in itself brought tears to my eyes as I woke her for Christmas Eve dinner. I looked at Mom and said, “I couldn’t have helped you unless you helped yourself, and you did that by escaping on your own.” She just grinned. And I thought, to myself, “So this is Christmas.” Wow!

do it. But Van Gogh’s brother patched the chicken coop with Vincent’s work,” Wyman said. Over time, as Carol created a body of work that numbers some 300 pieces, Wyman saw the progress being made. “I started out looking at the work saying, a child could do this,” he said. “But she kept getting wilder and wilder with her colors, and I said, ‘Nope, a child can’t do this. I couldn’t do this.’” Dasa Bausova was more immediately impressed. An artist herself, as well as a Wyly staff member, she visited the Wyman home and knew something memorable in the making. Bausova was struck most by how personal the work was. Carol seldom speaks, and painting has become her essential means of expression. “I think she’s communicating through her work about her life, about herself. Who she is and what she’s been through,” she said. “There’s a lot of self-portraiture, a lot of repeated symbolism. There’s not a narrative, but expressed sentiments, an attitude about who she is on a deep level. These aren’t self-aggrandizing portraits. She’s going deep down.” Wyman has gotten almost no specifics from his mother about

what was on her mind as she painted. “I’d just ask her what kind of brushes she wanted, what colors she wanted,” he said. But in the self-portraits, the nudity, the colors, the devilish images, he thinks she was taking in the widest view possible of all she was been through. “Probably every emotion a human can have — from bliss to love to anger, hate. Child-like. The whole emotional gamut,” he said. Bausova sees some connection to Miró and Basquiat in Carol’s style; others have seen, in the broad strokes, the influence of Van Gogh. “But it’s hard to say,” Bausova said. “I don’t know if she’s ever even seen those artists. The work is definitely her own. It’s very unapologetic about what she has to say. Fearless.��� Wyman would sometimes watch as his mother took what he thought was a gorgeous painting, and turn it uglier. “She’d have something that looked beautiful to me. Then she’d put black paint over it, outlining it,” he said. “I’d say, ‘What are you doing?’ She’d tell me to go away. One of her self-portraits, I wanted to destroy it when I first saw it. It’s disturbing.” Eventually, Wyman had his eyes widened by his mother’s art. “One of the lessons I learned from Paul Soldner” — the late Aspenite who was a revolutionary figure in contemporary ceramics — “was when his father asked him, ‘Why do you make your pots ugly?’ And Paul said, ‘What’s ugly?’” Carol’s development has been extraordinary; Bausova says she had the kind of artistic growth you’d see over 20 years, not four, and not from a self-taught octogenarian. Bausova finds the 300 paintings an output that is “totally astounding.” Clearly Carol was having a profound engagement with her vision. The entrance to the Wyly exhibition features two works, one from 2009 and one from 2013, side by side. “She was searching for a style, seeing what works,” Bausova said. “Then you see she just got it, so confident. In 2009, she wasn’t so comfortable with the paint. There was a feeling: ‘What does this do?’ So much growth happened so quickly.” For Wyman and Bausova — and who knows, maybe Carol too — there is a fundamental lesson in art-making here. Carol never considered the market for her art, and apparently never looked to the past to see what had been made earlier. She drew on her own world, all of that world, with the only goal being self-expression. “They’re so unencumbered,” Bausova said. “That’s the ultimate place to be in art — not held back by your training or your culture, but getting to your source. Carol’s definitely doing that.” One of the areas Carol seems to have been exploring was sexuality. In recognition of the children’s art classes held at the Wyly, Bausova excluded from the exhibition some of the more explicit paintings. “She didn’t do it for fame, didn’t do it for profit,” Wyman said. “She did it for herself. Which is pretty much the best art you can do.” And though Carol hasn’t said as much, her son believes that opportunity for expression has been invaluable. “She’s probably had the best years of her adult life,” Wyman said. “It’s kept her up, gave her a purpose.” Carol has slowed down dramatically in her output; Wyman believes her body is in its last stage. “She’s failing. She’s on the way out,” he said. But her art might give her a lasting name. “Time will tell,” Bausova said about the chance that Carol’s art will get a wider audience. “There’s been a lot of attention. People are coming to the Wyly to debate about the work. This is just a beginning. It’s too bad she’s so far along in her illness. But there might be some surprising things still to come. I keep having to come up with new adjectives to describe the work. It’s mind-bendingly good.”

DALLAS, THEN AND NOW:

50 YEARS AFTER JFK, DALLAS READY TO START ANEW “BLOOD THIRSTY, AREN’T YA?” the man asked. He was standing behind the morgue pictures of JFK, the president’s head missing on one side. I couldn’t help but look, stare really, as I stood there in Dealey Plaza, just a feet away from where Abraham Zapruder shot his now infamous film. Embarrassed by my own outrageous curiosity, I didn’t answer as I walked away. Since November 1963, the collective consciousness in Dallas has harbored the painful reminder that it was “the city that killed Kennedy.” After the assassination, the suburbs exploded,

as if the residents’ exodus from downtown represented their own desire to get as far away from that day as they could get. Dallas’s downtown

No v e m b e r 2 8 - D e c e m b e r 4 , 20 13

became a quiet, sad place. But those times are now history, and Dallas is ready to move on — both psychologically and communally. Recent development has spurred new life in this downtown. The movement to re-urbanize is led by the The Joule, a 161-room boutique hotel that revitalized a 1920s landmark Dallas building, and today features sleek interiors by Adam Tihany, with modern art throughout. It’s got a chic retail boutique, nooks for flipping through coffee-table books and a small, but exquisite coffee shop that serves homemade pastries like

kabocha squash pop tarts. The hotel is also home to CBD Provisions, which opened in October. It’s a modern scratch bistro with a lively cocktail scene and menu that embraces Texas traditions, but also looks forward with dishes like Berkshire pork head carnitas and cocktails created by the team behind Manhattan’s successful Milk & Honey. (Plans to open a cocktail lounge in the basement of The Joule are also in the works.) Beyond downtown, chef Matt McCallister is making a statement with FT33 in the nearby Design District. At age 31, he is chef and owner of the city’s most progressive and eclectic restaurant, and a leader in the Dallas farm-to-table movement with the creation of one of the country’s coolest food festivals — Chefs for Farmers. Dubbed as the “home down, no fuss culinary event of the year,” which accurately describes Chefs for Farmers, this is a perfectly paired celebration of farmers and the beautiful things local chefs can do with their hard work. Patrons bring their own blankets to wine classes, with proceeds going to the North Texas Food Bank and Momentum Café, a culinary training facility for at-risk youths. And there is more on the way. Love Field will soon host substantially more direct flights, a train from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to downtown is set to open, improvements are being made to downtown bus transportation and an urban housing assistance plan, akin to that of Aspen’s, strives to bring more people to live in the downtown core. Developers of The Joule have purchased land across the street from the hotel to host installation art, as well as other developable properties to refurbish with additional restaurants, galleries and retail. Dallas is finding new life and is ready to be known for something more than the tragedy that has shadowed it for 50 years. They are banking on now, that time has finally come.

‘ALL THAT IS’ — AND A LOT MORE PART-TIME ASPENITE JAMES SALTER KICKS OFF WINTER WORDS SERIES JAMES SALTER HAS BEEN tagged with the term “a writer’s writer” that the phrase has lost most of its meaning to the writer himself.

“It’s the life of an editor,” Salter, who opens the Aspen Writers’ Foundation’s Winter Words series with an appearance on Saturday, Nov. 30 at Paepcke Auditorium. “I was exterior to that world. I was a writer, and didn’t work in a publishing house. But I’ve been in them. The book has a certain authority.” Salter, who has lived part-time in Aspen since the 1950s, is 88. In conversation, he can be short on words, and this can come off as either coyness or extreme directness. When he says that he was an outsider to the publishing world, and that “All That Is” has “a certain authority,” he is being both coy and straight to the point. The novel imagines a world that is satisfying in its detail and clarity, in its reality. In the concise, precise language that has become his signature, Salter conveys not just the activity of a 20th century New York book editor but the surrounding look and the emotional feel of that piece of the world. “It represented an aspect of civilization,” ASPEN WRITERS’ FOUNDATION’S WINTER WORDS SERIES Salter said of the publishing industry, James Salter with no hint of Saturday, Nov. 30, at 6 p.m. grandiosity. “I liked Paepcke Auditorium its dignity, the sense of dedication it had.

older Bowman than the younger. The publishing profession serves not only as one that Salter knows, but one that, like Bowman, is heading toward an end. “It was an era of publishing, everybody I knew sensed was drawing to a close — that particular style and pace of publishing,” Salter said. “I sometimes have that little elegiac quality in passages.” Talking about his own book, Salter brings up “The Leopard,” Giuseppe di Lampedusa’s landmark 1958 novel about the 19th century upheaval that resulted in a group of individual states becoming a unified Italy. “It’s sort of a story of the fading of the old era,” Salter said. Also in the Winter Words series (all events are at Paepcke Auditorium): • Richard Blanco, Jan. 28: Born in Madrid to Cuban parents and educated in Miami, Blanco read at President Obama’s second inaugural, becoming the fifth inaugural poet in U.S. history. The experience is the subject of his new poetic memoir, “For all of Us.” • Dani Shapiro & Nick Flynn, Feb. 8: Flynn’s memoir “Another Bullshit Night in Suck City” focused on his father, an alcoholic who lived on the streets of Boston. His latest memoir, “The Reenactments,” is about adapting the earlier book into a film, starring Robert De Niro as the elder Flynn, and touches on film and memory. Shapiro has written five novels and two bestselling memoirs. Her latest book is another memoir, “Still Writing: the Perils and Pleasures of a Creative Life.” • Carole DeSanti & Karen Joy Fowler, Feb. 25: DeSanti’s debut novel, the historical fiction “The Unruly Passions of Eugénie R.,” was written while DeSanti worked as an executive and editor for Viking Penguin. Fowler’s novels include “The Jane Austen Book Club” and the recent “We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves,” about a young female outsider. • Tom Reiss, March 19: Reiss earned a 2013 Pulitzer Prize for “The Black Count,” a biography of Alex Dumas, the inspiration behind his son Alexandre’s “The Count of Monte Cristo.” • Maria Semple, March 31: Semple, who was raised in Aspen, earned acclaim for her recent satirical novel, “Where’d You Go, Bernadette?”

PLAN FOR AUGMENTATION 19. Names of Approved Augmented Structures: The Tybar Lot Wells, Tybar Ranch Ditch and Pipeline Enlargement, Bull Pasture Diversion No. 1 and Bull Pasture Division No. 2. Such structures are described in detail above and in the 02CW23 Decree. 20. Names of Water Rights Approved for Augmentation: Dallas Pond, Worth Pond, Texoma Pond, Tybar Pond and Bull Pasture Pond. Such structures are described in detail above and in the 02CW23 Decree. 21. The approved plan for augmentation is described in the 02CW23 Decree. To the extent that a finding of reasonable diligence is required for the plan for augmentation, such a finding is requested in this Application. 22. EVIDENCE OF REASONABLE DILIGENCE 22. Evidence of Reasonable Diligence: During the most recent diligence period, Applicant has taken steps to diligently develop the subject water rights, including, without limitation, the activities described below. This list is not intended to be comprehensive and may be supplemented by additional evidence. The subject water rights were originally decreed to serve the property that was a portion of the Tybar Ranch and is now subdivided into 11 separate lots with common areas. The subject water rights serve as the basis for the domestic water supply for each of the Tybar Lots and the augmentation of the same under the plan for augmentation approved in the 02CW23 Decree. Portions of the subject water rights serve the common area and specific lots. The subject water rights make up the legal and physical source of supply of water for the PUD. Given the economic times since the entry of the 02CW23 Decree on October 7, 2007, the development and sales efforts associated with the PUD were slowed but not terminated or discontinued. The PUD remains in good standing and some basic infrastructure has been improved and maintained in connection with the PUD. In addition, Applicant performed the following diligence activities in connection with development of the subject water rights to serve the PUD: a. Applicant’s representatives conducted site visits to STGT confirm the decreed locations for each of the subject water rights and utilities. b. Applicant has secured a permit for and constructed Tybar Lot No. 4 Well. Applicant contracted with Shelton Drilling to perform pump tests on such well, which tests have been completed. c. Applicant constructed utility lines to serve Lot No. 6 and showed Lot No. 6 several times privately to potential buyers. d. Applicant is currently listing Lot Nos. 3 through 6 on the real estate market for sale. e. Applicant obtained approval of and recorded the final plat for the PUD. f. Applicant monitored new water rights applications and activities of other appropriators in order to protect its interest in the subject water rights. g. Applicant engaged the services of engineering consultants in connection with the above-described activities and associated water rights matters. h. Applicant engaged the services of attorneys to provide legal advice in connection with the above-described activities and associated water rights matters. i. Total expenditure in time and money for all of the above work during the diligence period is difficult to estimate, but is conservatively estimated at over $45,000.00. 23. The subject water rights are components of an integrated water supply system for the development. Given the interrelated and interdependent nature of the various components of Applicant’s integrated water system, of which the subject water rights are a part, work completed with respect to any one component of Applicant’s water system should appropriately be considered in finding that reasonable diligence has been shown in the development of water rights for all features of Applicant’s integrated water supply system. See C.R.S. § 37-92-301(4)(b). 24. Name and address of owner of the land upon which any new diversion of storage structure, or modification to any existing diversion or storage structure is or will be constructed upon which water is or will be stored, including any modification to the existing storage pool: Applicant.

BOOK REVIEW

‘THE FLAMETHROWERS’ RENO, THE 22-YEAR-OLD protagonist of Rachel Kushner’s second novel, “The Flamethrowers,” makes her first appearance as she flies across Nevada on her way to Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats in the 1970s. “The land was drained of color and specificity,” she observes. “The faster I went, the more connected I felt to the map.” A native of the city she’s named for, Reno had moved to New York City several months earlier to try to become a successful artist. Now, she’s returning home for two weeks to make and photograph motorcycle tracks. The novel moves from Nevada and Bonneville to New York’s Lower East Side and across the Atlantic to Italy, but because it is all seen through Reno’s working-class Western lens, the reader never loses sight of the highway and unbroken sky where the novel begins.

the disparate locations, using parallel encounters with motorcycles, guns, art and films to subtly link events across time and space. Events that happen elsewhere in the world illuminate those that take place in the West: As we follow the founder of the Moto Valera company, who finds beauty in the chaos of urban Milan through the sleekness of his motorcycles, for instance, we understand why Reno quotes one of the land artist Robert Smithson’s more controversial statements. Constructing his famous Spiral Jetty in a red algae-filled portion of the Great Salt Lake, Smithson remarked that “pollution and industry could be beautiful.” “The Flamethrowers” embraces the Western penchant for speed, the exhilaration of driving fast through empty landscapes. At the same time, the novel questions who is entitled

to represent the West. Reno points out that it is “an irony but a fact” that to become a respected Western artist, she has to move to New York first. A homegrown land artist would be accused of being provincial and naive. And yet, as she says early on, “The question itself is evidence of not belonging.” Once someone is conscious of deliberately representing the West, he or she ceases to effortlessly belong to it. Between these tense and provocative layers lies an expansive, irresistible story that plays out with action almost as gripping as racing a motorcycle across the Bonneville Salt Flats.
