Consider volunteering at local animal shelter
FRONT RANGE Volunteering at your local shelter is a great way to make a difference in the lives of shelter dogs and your community. Volunteers can take dogs for walks, socialize them, make the rounds during meal times, or just offer a friendly face for attention. Rescue organizations are always in need of supplies; gather up gently used blankets, towels and toys from friends and family to donate—just be sure to check first to see what rescue groups and shelters need most. Friends of Charlie’s Place is a non-
profit designed to support Charlie’s Place Clear Creek/Gilpin County Animal Shelter, a non-kill shelter in Dumont. The friends are a staff of dedicated volunteers who strive to do all they can to help with the needs of the animals at Charlie’s Place and to offer assistance, when possible, to the companion animals and their owners within the community. No animal has ever gone without medical care thanks to the group. Volunteers play a vital role in helping the animal who pass through the shelter. The Friends of Charlie’s Place

and the animal shelter itself couldn’t do the great things it does without their “wonderful” volunteers. The shelter always welcomes new volunteers to walk dogs and pet cats, research new grants and other resources, attend adoption events, work with trainers to make dogs more adoptable, take a dog on a field trip with an “Adopt Me” bib and other tasks. In addition to helping save the lives of animals, volunteering at a shelter is good for your emotional, physical, and mental health. It is scientifically proven that spending time with animals helps lower your stress levels and blood pressure. It will also keep you active, especially if you prefer to walk dogs. You get to create a unique bond with the animals, which helps with emotional health. If looking for a pet, volunteering at a shelter has numerous benefits. Choosing a pet is a big decision, and some people are too quick to take home a pet based on appearance when his demeanor and energy level might not be a good fit. Working at a shelter helps you get to know different animals on many levels—how they play, their energy level, how they act with kids and other pets, and how much training they’ll need. You might fall in love with a breed you didn’t expect, or find the perfect companion for a friend who’s looking for a pet. If you would like to join in helping to save lives at Charlie’s Place, visit friendsofcharliesplace.org to submit information and why you would like to volunteer or contact Donna Gee at 303668-0924 or FOCP292@gmail.com to find out how you can help. If you would like to join in helping to save lives at your local shelter, drop in or visit its website to learn about their volunteer programs. Those close to Golden can check out the Foothill Animals Shelter, one of the largest animal shelters in Colorado. Visit its website at foothillsanimalshelter.org. Residents throughout Boulder County can visit the Humane Society of Boulder County website at boulderhumane. org. Those close to Estes Park can check out the Pet Association of Estes Park at facebook.com/PetAssociationofEP or the Larimer Humane Society at larimerhumane.org. While their needs are different, there are numerous private rescue groups throughout the region. Most operate by fostering pets in private homes and are always looking for new foster families.

Lewis, Gerber kick off concert series
The High Street Concert series kicks off its 16th season, Oct. 13, with a performance by Laurie Lewis and Nina Gerber with special guest Follow the Fox at Rogers Hall, 400 High St. Organizer Annie Sirotniak and “The High Street Crew” invite residents to BLUE“gather once again for great muGRASS sic and community in our intimate listening venue.” Grammy Award-winning musician Laurie Lewis is internationally renowned as a singer, songwriter, fiddler, band leader, producer and educator. She was a founding member of the Good Ol’ Persons and the Grant Street String Band and has performed and recorded since 1986 with her musical partner, mandolinist Tom Rozum. She has twice been voted IBMA’s Female Vocalist of the Year and has won the respect and admiration of her peers. Since her debut in 1986, Laurie has recorded nearly 20 albums in a number of musical formats. Her latest album, “The Hazel and Alice Sessions,” with her band the Right Hands—featuring Tom Rozum, Brandon Godman, Patrick Sauber and Sam Grisman—was nominated for the Best Bluegrass Grammy in 2017.

NOTEWORTHY The Cody Sisters - White on the Blue u Oct 6: Gold Hill Store & Pub, 531 Main St., Gold Hill • 3-5 p.m. u Nov. 18: Gold Hill Inn, 401 Main St., Gold Hill • 7:30 p.m.
ith strong ties to traditional American acoustic music, the Cody Sisters Band is at the heart of contemporary acoustic music in Colorado. At just 15 and 13, Megan and Maddie Cody are known for their warm harmonies and award-winning instrumentation. The sisters, who recently returned from a 15-date tour of England and Wales, released their sophomore album White on The Blue—featuring original songs “that will make you dance and lift your spirits”—at the end of August. The act also includes their father Steve on bass. The goal of the album was to produce new, original and uplifting music. These young ladies saw an opportunity to take some fairly disagreeable times and make things positive. Some example from the album include “Umbrella,” which is about enjoying our lives “no matter what” and “Dandelion,” which asks the question: “When you see a dandelion, do you see a weed, or do you see the potential of a wish.” “A Song for Wayne” is an instrumental tribute to the master craftsman and luthier Wayne Henderson that built the guitars the Cody Sisters play. The song is an instrumental conversation between the two guitars that were notably built from the same stock of wood. “The Unquiet Grave” is an Old English folk song in which a young woman mourns her dead love too hard and prevents him from obtaining peace. Their take on this tune puts a new twist as the girls apply their highly instrumental touch with their “almost sinister” banjo and guitar solos. “Dallas,” a song that sticks out from the positive spirit of the album, is “hauntingly dark.” Mostly written by Steve, it is about a woman that will do anything to protect her daughter and succumbs to the fear, anxiety and stress of not being able to protect the one thing that she loves. Guest Natalie Rae Padilla is featured on “Umbrella,” “Toes,” and “Crazy Head,” while Enion Pelta-Tiller joins in on “Dallas” and “Dandelion.” Visit thecodysistersmusic.com for additional tour dates and information.

It was found and revived just a few years ago in the Appalachian Mountains. “These skills have recently begun to be passed on to others with the hope of saving this art from for future generations,” Upchurch said. “I only use the purest materials and work with mostly handmade tools and basic shop practices.” Upchurch’s work is done by hand in a small studio on the Mississippi river in Canton, Missouri. His art is greatly influenced by Arts and Crafts Design of the late 1800s and early 1900s. A strong focus is also the Art Nouveau work of Charles Rennie Macintosh. Upchurch has recently studied with Ben Caldwell from Nashville and Douglas Pryor of Sacramento.
“I’m honored to join the list of artists who display their work at The Old Gallery,” said Upchurch. Other featured artists include Vicki Dyas, Anne Curtis, Lyn E. Ferguson, Connie Garcia, Blair Hamill, Terry Kasprazak, Weldon Lee, Hannah Shook, Bob Maynard, Cheryl Pennington, Russell Shamah, Kristi Mann, Dawn Wilson, Merrie Wicks, Pam Dwyer and Sally Van Der Kamp. Located at 14863 Highway 7 at the entrance to Allenspark, The Old Gallery is 20 minutes south of Estes Park and 20 minutes from Lyons. It is a center for community and the arts for Allenspark, Raymond, Riverside and other Peak to Peak communities and provides art, education, entertainment and social services to area residents and visitors.

FOOD & DRINK | LEARNING | RECREATION & OUTDOORS | SPECIAL EVENTS
Elevate Your Expectations By Jeffrey V. Smith ESTES PARK onsumers of fine spirits and anyone interested in Colorado’s booming craft spirits industry are invited to “Elevate Your Expectations,” Oct. 27 from 2-5 p.m., at the new Rocky Mountain Craft Spirits Festival. The main tasting event—which includes live music, food and games— takes place indoors at the Estes Park Event Center, 1125 Rooftop Way, with an optional pre-festival distillery tour at Elkin Distillery and pairing dinner at Latitude 105. Tickets to the main event are $45 for individuals or $80 for a couple. Parking is free and plentiful. The new festival was created by the Town of Estes Park’s Events Division to capitalize on the popularity of regionally-crafted spirits. “Our Whiskey Warmup event in March has been wildly successful, and our team wanted to put together another unique opportunity for guests to sample products from area distillers,” Special Events Coordinator David Hocker said. “While whiskey is really the emphasis in March, the upcoming Spirits Festival is bringing in a wider variety of spirits in order to offer something for everyone’s palate.” Town staff know people in Colorado have “high standards and good taste,” so they are “excited” to bring many of the area’s most talented distillers together to provide an opportunity for guests to see how the craft spirits industry has evolved. “We chose October because the crowds have thinned out, but winter hasn’t arrived yet, making this a perfect time to
head to Estes Park for a daytrip or an overnight,” Hocker said. The indoor event at the Estes Park Event Center includes a souvenir tasting glass to sample products from about 30 different distillers. “Our distiller friends are always happy to educate guests on what makes their products unique, and this is a great opportunity to find out what you really like in a distilled spirit,” Hocker said. Festival guests can also enjoy live music from You Knew Me When and Hunker Down. Food will be available for sample or purchase, and guests can enjoy cornhole, darts, and other games while sampling products and enjoying the party. Latitude 105 at The Ridgeline Hotel presents a pairing dinner the weekend of the event. Join Executive Chef Jacob Tew, Oct. 26, as he presents an outstanding culinary experience featuring pairings with craft spirits by Breckenridge Distillery and Elkins Distillery. A separate ticket is required. Elkins Whisky is the tasting festival’s presenting sponsor, and are offering a behind the scenes tour of their distillery the day of the festival. Arrive at 1 p.m. and take a peek at the processes used to bring you the first and only spirits made legally in Estes Park. A separate ticket is required for the tour and are only available to main event ticket holders. The Town of Estes Park will be providing a free shuttle the day of the event. This service will make stops at a variety of locations around town, including lodging sponsors. Tickets and additional information are available at epspirits.com.

Local shelter perfect place to adopt new best friend By Jeffrey V. Smith GILPIN COUNTY or millions of shelter dogs, there’s something special about October. The month brings hope for a better life since it’s both National Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month and Adopta-Dog Month. The commemorations, promoted by American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and American Humane Association respectively, bring attention to the many reasons to rescue a dog from a local shelter, which is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality. When adopting, you’ll be saving a life and improving your own. Each year, 3.9 million dogs enter shelters and an estimated 670,000 of those never find a hero to give them a safe, loving home, and are euthanized. Things are different in Clear Creek and Gilpin counties thanks to Charlie’s Place, 500 W. Dumont Road. The compassionate, no-kill facility acts as both counties’ official animal shelter, and as a “safe haven for any and all animals,” per the wishes of long-time animal lover Helen Buck. In an effort to give back to the animals that had given her immense joy, Buck donated the Blue Ridge Mill Site—one of the only flat pieces of land in the area—to the county for a place to build a shelter. Her land was donated in memory of Charlie, her much-loved and loyal German Shepherd, Charlie. Helen’s vision for Charlie’s Place is for it to be “a no kill-facility to any animals in need of sanctuary.” Charlie’s Place opened in July 2007. Since its opening, hundreds of homeless animals have been adopted and the shelter has stayed true to Helen’s vision through the work of Animal Shelter Manager Sue LeBarron. “This is all I do. I even work at home on it,” she said. “I’m an animal lover and I’m never going to get an opportunity like this again. I personally can make a difference and I can personally save over 20 dogs a month. So, if I can do that, I’m going to do it. It’s better than watching TV. It’s not a typical job… I personally get an adrenaline rush every time a dog is saved. It doesn’t feel like work, the reward to save lives is my payoff.” The shelter takes in any dog in Clear Creek or Gilpin County that “needs to be somewhere” including strays, surrenders, drunk driver and jail holds, aggressive dogs and more. “Any time a dog needs to be held, we do that here and we always give the country priority,” LeBarron said. “If someone wants to surrender their dog, I won’t say no to a county person. I may ask them to wait a week, but I never say no.”
Benson was rescued by Charlie’s Place from a high-kill shelter in Texas and adopted in Gilpin County.
Charlie’s Place also receives dogs from high-kill shelters in states including Texas and Oklahoma that can be easily placed, and saved, here in Colorado. Depending on space, the most adoptable and healthy dogs LeBarron can find, that are the most threatened with euthanasia are brought in for local adoption. “It’s a balance. If I bring in all the hard luck cases, they are just going to sit here. The only way I can make this work in a county setting is to have movement,” she said. “I try to bring in dogs that people want… I get so many e-mails every single day, it’s not hard to find that.” Many of these dogs that come to Charlie’s Place are hand-picked to be saved and a lot of people work on both ends to make it happen. “It’s a whole chain of people before the pup gets here. By the time they get here they will be healthy,” LeBarron said. “It’s a win win. We try to bring in adoptable dogs to serve our customers, but it really does save lives too. People donate money because they like that.” According to LeBarron, it takes the same amount of staff to care for five dogs as it does for 20 dogs. “That’s why we can do this,” she explained. “We would never be full if we only took the stays or surrenders, we’d have five kennels filled. Why waste this resource when Helen wanted us to save dogs? It’s not a county mandate by any stretch, but Gilpin County wants it to be no-kill and in writing.” Another reason the shelter can do what it does is through the work of volunteers from Friends of Charlie’s Place. They also contribute $40,000 a year for all spay and neuters, above-average medical costs and a dog trainer. When someone adopts a dog from the shelter they not only save a life, they make a difference by helping address the pet overpopulation problem and “keep the cycle going” by creating space for another dog to be saved. Another benefit of a Charlie’s Place adoption is knowing what you’re going to get. “We usually know the dogs and cats,” LeBarron explained. “We are small enough that we get to know these animals. They are not just a number down the aisles. We know who they are. You will get more personalized knowledge of these animals to help you with a better fit. We have a lot less red tape than other shelters do, so we can individualize

things a lot more for people.” Additionally, LeBarron also keeps the website up to date and Facebook alive with stories and pictures. “People study it. They come in here and they know which dog they want to see and have done their homework,” she said. Finding the right fit is important when adopting, according to LeBarron. She said it’s really important to research the breed. “If you’re getting a healer it’s going to be really smart and want to herd things. If you’ve got toddlers or kids on bikes, it might not be the best choice. If you really attracted to huskies, it’s not the best fit if you live in a condo,” she said. Learn more at charliesplaceshelter.org and friendsofcharliesplace.org or call 303-679-2477. Stop in the shelter from noon-4:30 p.m., Wednesday-Sunday to meet an adoptable dog or cat. Most areas of Boulder County are served by the Humane Society of Boulder County, 2323 55th St. in Boulder. It provides shelter and care to more than 7,000 animals each year, with 95 percent of these animals being successfully adopted or reunited with their guardians. Visit boulderhumane.org for information and adoptable animals. In Estes Park, the Estes Park Pet Association is a not-for-profit organization that acts as a local humane society. They facilitate adoptions for stray and abandoned pets—about 75 dogs and 50 cats per year— and see they get needed medical treatment and the love they need. Homeless animals are sheltered at The Estes Park Pet Lodge, 1260 Manford Ave. Visit facebook.com/PetAssociationofEP for information.
