PEAK TO PEAK National Library Week, April 713, is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and library workers and to promote library use and support. From free access to books and online resources for families to library business centers that help support entrepreneurship and retraining, libraries offer opportunity to all.

Communities,” and Gates Foundation Co-founder Melinda Gates is the 2019 Honorary Chair. First created in 1958, National Library Week is sponsored by the American Library Association and observed in libraries across the country each April.

ies of all types serve as change agents that strengthen communities by supporting community engagement and providing services that connect closely with patrons’ needs. “In addition to providing communities with access to ideas and information, libraries play an important role in our public life by encouraging creativity, promoting equality, and serving as a source of empowerment,” Gates said. “This week, and every week, library workers deserve our support and our gratitude.” Melinda Gates has dedicated her life to achieving transformational improvements in the health and prosperity of families, communities and societies. Now she will lend her support to advocate for our nation’s libraries as honorary chair of National Library Week. Over the last 20 years, she has invested more than $1 billion through her foundation’s Global Libraries initiative to enhance the power of libraries to improve lives. On April 23, Gates will debut “The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World,” a timely and necessary call to action for women’s empowerment. The candid and inspiring book traces Gates’ awakening to the link between women’s empowerment and the health of societies. It introduces us to Gates’ heroes in the movement toward equality, offers startling data and shares some of the moving conversations she’s had with women all over the world. Gates details the tremendous opportunities that exist right now to “turbo-charge” change, and she provides simple and effective methods that each of us can use to make a difference. National Library Workers Day, April 9, is designed to recognize the hard work, dedication, and expertise of library support staff and librarians. It is the perfect day to stop in to thank district employees for their dedication. In the Peak to Peak, public libraries serve many of the mountain communities including the Gilpin County Public Library, 15131 Hwy. 119; Nederland Community Library, 200 Hwy. 72 N.; Ward Public Library, 66 Columbia St.; Lyons Regional Library, 5 Main St. and Estes Valley Library, 335 E. Elkhorn Ave. Visit the location near you to see what it offers and how it serves the community, you’ll likely be surprised at all they have to offer. In Lyons, be sure to stop and meet the new Lyons Library Director Rebecca Schuh who was appointed in March.

National park receives record visitation in 2018 ESTES PARK Rocky Mountain National Park received its highest annual visitation ever in 2018. The park received a total of 4,590,492 visitors last year, which was a 3.5 percent increase over visitation in 2017. This number represents a slight increase from previous record visitation in 2016, of 4,517,584. Visitation for 2018 represents a 42 percent increase since 2012. Determining visitation numbers is a difficult and imprecise effort. Visiwww.mmacmonthly.com

tation statistics are reliably accurate estimates and help park managers see overall trends. Fall visitation, particularly on weekends, continues to increase at Rocky Mountain National Park. Winter weekend visitation also continues to increase. The top ten busiest days in 2018 in order from first to tenth were: Sept. 22, Sept. 10, Sept. 2, July 22, Sept. 15, Sept. 3, Sept. 23, Sept. 16, July 1, and Aug. 11. Park managers continue to address the effect this level of visitation is hav-

ing on visitor and staff safety, resource protection, visitor experiences and operational capacity. Beginning in 2016, park staff restricted vehicle access on the Bear Lake Road corridor, the Wild Basin area and Alpine Visitor Center when parking areas fill and heavy congestion warrants. Other areas of the park are experiencing high visitation as well, particularly when restrictions are in place. For more information, visit nps. gov/romo or call 970-586-1206.

Dylan featured on singer’s latest album, tour NEDERLAND On her latest album, Songs of Bob Dylan, Joan Osborne “unleashes her sizable gifts as a vocalist and interpreter” of the celebrated songwriter’s work. With performances polished by two critically acclaimed two-week residencies at New York City’s Café Carlyle in March 2016 SINGERand 2017, the seven-time GrammySONGnominated, multi-platinum-selling WRITER singer is taking the show on the road. The musician brings her “Joan Osborne Sings The Songs Of Bob Dylan” tour to The Caribou Room, 55 Indian Peaks Dr. in Nederland, April 17. Julie Stratton of The Mile Markers opens. “I try not to do a straight-up imitation of what someone else has done,” Osborne said. “Like if you’re going to sing an Otis Redding song, you’re never going to out-Otis him so you shouldn’t even try. So I always try to find some unique way into the song, and also to pick songs where the intersection between the song and my voice hits some kind of sweet spot. It was a joy being able to sing these brilliant lyrics. It’s like an actor being given a great part. You are just so excited to say these lines because they’re so powerful that it lifts you up above yourself.” The album and tour performances span Dylan’s career. “His versions are legendary and I’m not trying to improve on them,” Osborne explained. “I’m

just trying to sing beautiful songs and let people hear them. It’s about trying to give a different shade of meaning to something that’s already great. I happen to think Dylan is a great singer, but I will never, in a million years, sound like him, which almost made it easier.” In 2003, Osborne joined the surviving members of The Grateful Dead and had the chance to sing “Tears of Rage,” with Dylan, their co-headliner. Doors open for dinner at 6:30 p.m. Julie Stratton performs at 7:45 p.m. and Joan Osborne plays at 9 p.m. Tickets are $36 for general admission or $42 for reserved seating before fees.

olorado singer-songwriter, Daniel Rodriguez, turns to his acoustic guitar for memorable, melodic hooks to accompany his poetic and contemplative folk songs. With over a decade under his belt as one of the founding members and lead songwriters of the transcendental folk band, Elephant Revival, Rodriguez is well-versed in the Americana tour circuit. Before going on hiatus after a third headlining Red Rocks show in May 2018, Elephant Revival had released six albums and performed countless shows and festivals. Needing to fill the musical void that might have become following Elephant Revival’s hiatus announcement, Rodriguez almost immediately headed out on tour as a solo artist. In February, he released his first solo recording, the five-song EP, Your Heart, The Stars, The Milky Way. “I am excited to soon have more songs for your listening ears and discerning hearts,” Rodriguez said in advance f the release. “I couldn’t be more giddy about this batch of songs and how they turned out.” The track, Johnny, was recorded live with all musicians in the same room to achieve a “big room sound”. The story in the song follows Johnny, who “steps outside the box of society, the neighborhood block, the bounds of the bounds of pavement, electric wires and cell phone towers. The music was recorded at Mountain Star Studio and features Tyler Thompson and Jeff Leonard of Fruition, Darren Garvey of Elephant Revival, Lewi Longmire and Sam Trump. Learn more, find a complete tour schedule and check out the EP by visiting drodriguezmusic.com.

our energy, it’s about our songs and it’s about the connection the band has, but above all of that, it’s just about the fact we are super high-energy; all five of us. Everybody has their own vibe,” Bonnie explained. Bonnie and the Clydes has evolved quite bit since it began as a county cover band nine years ago. Despite a slew of recognition and awards in county music categories, the band now shies away from that description in favor of “Rocky Mountain Country Soul.” “I think a lot of people are interested in us from the songwriting aspect, because we play a lot of original music and our songwriting has evolved,” Bonnie explained. “I have started writing more and Taylor… joined the band after a year. So, it has become a much more Americana sound and less country, and we wanted to really incorporate the fact that we’re here in Colorado and the Rocky Mountains.” The band continues to play covers like in the early days, but members now try to make them songs people don’t always know is a cover or something that’s really popular, but audiences wouldn’t expect them to play. “We’re not going to do “Joleen” because it’s a really popular country song… but then we do a Tina Turner song, because people don’t see that coming,” Bonnie said. Apart from the intimate room, Bonnie and Taylor also enjoy playing in the Front Range foothill venues. “I love [performing] in Gold Hill and Jamestown, two of our favorite towns in the mountains,” Bonnie said. “Bonnie and the Clyde’s got a lot of our first real fans from those kinds of shows because, even though it is a bar, it has that vibe of a house concert, almost, of being in a living room vibe.” According to Bonnie, the mountain shows are not a “disconnected scene” where there’s the audience and the band. “It’s kind of like we’re all in it together. They are very involved,” she said. “At Gold Hill, people stomp so hard sometimes I’m like this cabin can’t take it… I love that vibe. I think the mountains have provided a lot of good fans for us in the beginning and still.” Although known for its live act, the band has also independently released four studio albums and is currently working on its fifth studio release. The first single, “Hold On Me,” was released in March and more singles will come out before the full album is released this fall. Off the stage, Bonnie and Taylor put their musical skills to work by teaching a variety of summer camps for kids aged 7-15 in Longmont, Crested Butte and Santa Fe. “It’s a huge sustaining part of our life”, Bonnie explained. “A huge aspect of who we are as musicians is trying to connect with the community through education and hosting jams. We love that aspect of music, and it’s so ripe here on the Front Range, it’s a good place for it.” Visit bonnieandherclydes.com or facebook.com/ bonnieandtheclydes to keep up with the band’s shows, album release and the Sims’ summer music camps in Colroado and New Mexico.

Library seeks artists for summer program GILPIN COUNTY Gilpin County Public Library is launching a search for artists to be featured in its annual Artists-in-Residence program this summer. It is looking for artists interested in sharing a talent during a 1-2 hour program—including a workshop, lecture, performance, demonstration, any combination of them or something else—on a Saturday in either June, July or August. Unlike in previous years, the library is looking for several artists who work in a variety of mediums to fill the summer schedule rather than a just one. To be eligible, an artist must reside in Gilpin County or surrounding communities and submit a letter of application. The deadline for applying is April 30. Artists receive an honorarium of $100 for the program along with a budget for supplies. Artists’ letters should describe themselves and their experience in a particular art form—painting, music, writing, photography or anything else—and should include a rough outline of a program that would “raise the consciousness of Gilpin County residents about a certain art form.” Letters can be e-mailed to the director, dropped off at the library, 15131 Hwy. 119, during regular business hours or mailed to Gilpin County Public Library, Artists-in-Residence, 15131 Hwy. 119, Black Hawk, CO 80422. Applicants are encouraged to contact Library Director Michael Carlson with questions before submitting their letter. Call 303-582-0161 or email mcarlson@gilpincounty.org with questions.

Heading to the finish line

Duck Race continues to grow, contribute


ESTES PARK he Estes Park Rotary Duck Race has grown into a festival and is once again offering expanded activities including all-day live entertainment, a 5K race, family fun and more at two locations, May 4, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The 31st Annual Duck Race continues a tradition started in 1989, which has returned more than $2.4 million to local charities and organizations. This year, many participating organizations will set up displays and activities at George Hix Memorial Riverside Plaza from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. instead of the previous location in Bond Park. Visitors to the organizations’ displays can learn about the charities and play family-friendly, duck-themed games. Organizations will sell duck adoptions until noon. To keep the fans of all ages fully entertained, the festival will provide six hours of live music under three tents. Music at the Starting Line at Nicky’s Steakhouse, 1350 Fall River Road includes The Singing Cowboy Ron Ball, 10-11 a.m.; the Riverside Ramblers, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and Estes Park Singers, 12:30-1 p.m. Music at the Finish Line at George Hix Memorial Riverside Plaza along the Riverwalk will be under tents near the Finish Line and near The Wheel Bar. Bands include Highland Brass Quintet, 10-11:30 a.m.; Elk Hollow, 11 a.m.-12:15 p.m., Vic Anderson, noon1:30 p.m. Cowboy Brad’s John Denver/Gordon Lightfoot Tribute, 12:30-2:15 p.m. and an act TBA, 2:30-4 p.m. “The live entertainment near the Start and Finish lines will provide a variety of great music for festival enjoyment including a crowd favorite, our own Cowboy Brad,” said Rick Taylor, who is coordinating Duck Race

Estes Park Rotary Club members with Mayor Todd Jirsa at Duck Race Headquarters.

Festival entertainment with Jack Overly. “It will be music to set the scene for a picturesque day in the mountains at the Rotary Duck Race Festival.” The George Hix Memorial Riverside Plaza schedule gives race fans ample time to travel to Nicky’s for the Duck Drop at 1 p.m. and then return to the Finish Line for the little yellow ducks to arrive. Ballet Renaissance’s Ballerina Duckies will perform at the Starting Line at Nicky’s and the Finish Line at the Wheel Bar. To take part in the race, the process is simple. Adopt a duck for a fee of $20 each—or $22 for an online adoption—and $19 for every duck benefits one of the charities or groups selected at the time of adoption. The more duck adoptions sold by the individual charities and organizations, the more money they can raise. Our 2018 Duck Race raised over $127,000 for our organizations. The all-volunteer Duck Race Committee has solicited financial support from Major Sponsors and Associate Sponsors. These generous sponsors help offer fabulous Major Prizes. In addition, local merchants provide hundreds of “wonderful” prizes. As every race fan knows, following those little yellow ducks or running in the Duck Waddle 5K can work up an appetite, so restaurants and coffee shops near the start and finish Lines will be ready to welcome hungry duck fans. For a complete schedule of events, festival details and information on how to adopt ducks, visit epduckrace.org or call 970-480-5002.

Flood repair construction projects to delay travel in canyons PEAK TO PEAK The Colorado Department of Transportation started permanent flood repairs on Highway 119 in Boulder Canyon in March and begins flood repairs on Highway 72 in Coal Creek Canyon in April. Boulder Canyon - Highway 119

Construction began in March on a 15-mile stretch of Highway 119 between Boulder and Nederland. The project is designed to remove the temporary repairs made after the storms in 2013, with permanent, more long-term repairs. Improvements will build in better storm resiliency and upgrade sections of the highway to improve motorist safety in the canyon. The repairs include removing and replacing materials placed during emergency repairs, excavating areas where the slope failed, reconstructing embankments and re-establishing native grass seed and erosion control to slopes disturbed during emergency recovery work. In areas with major road damage, the road width template is being widened. To make the highway more resilient, parts will be redesigned and one section will be completely rebuilt. The project, in partnership with Boulder County, will extend and reinforce sections of the Boulder Canyon Trail. The 10-foot-wide, multi-use trail will

Page 18

MMAC monthly

be extended from Four Mile Canyon to Chapman Drive adding two new bike-friendly tunnels under the highway and about 3500’ of length to the trail. Construction occurs Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Rock blasting work hours are 9 a.m.-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. Monday-Friday from April to August.No night or weekend work is planned, however, some work zones will remain closed. Various delays from single lane and full road closures are expected throughout the project. Motorists are strongly encouraged to plan ahead to allow enough time to reach their destination. Full highway closures for rock blasting and excavation are expected to last two hours. Expect long-term, single-lane closures managed by temporary traffic signals and short-term singlelane closures managed by flagging. The closures will add approximately 15-30 minutes of time between Boulder and Nederland. All traffic restriction schedules, updates, and lane closures will be posted on COTrip.org. Additional project information is available at codot.gov/ projects/co-119-boulder-roadway-improvements.

Coal Creek Canyon - Highway 72

In Coal Creek Canyon, the project includes widening sections of the highway, replacing culverts to

| APRIL 2019

meet current standards, replacing guardrails, and drainage and roadway improvements. While emergency repairs at the time made roads passable, permanent repairs will mitigate future damage. The project is along 12 miles of Highway 72 between Plainview Road and Pinecliffe. It is expected to take approximately 195 working days, with completion anticipated in summer 2020. Construction will occur Monday through Friday, 6:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Construction schedules are subject to change due to weather. Affected businesses and residents can call or e-mail at any time during the project for assistance. Construction will impact all motorized and nonmotorized traffic. Travel restrictions are necessary through the entire work zone and at several locations the road will be reduced to a single-lane with alternating traffic controlled by automated signals and flagging operations. Bicyclists will not be allowed through the work zone due to a limited road width under the single lane configuration and to prevent travel against the flow of traffic controlled by the temporary traffic signals. All traffic restriction schedules, updates, and lane closures will be posted on COTrip.org. Additional project information is available at codot.gov/projects/ floodrelatedprojects/co-72-coal-creek-canyon-1.
