Well said Steve E, I agree completely. Thank you David for all of your continuing efforts. I, for one, think this is a valid and useful bulletin and would love to see it continue, even if I choose to overlook the nonsense of anonymous posts or things I may not agree with. I appreciate the QT and the help it has personally provided me in our community, thanks

I'd miss the QT but I'd understand if you shut it down David. Thanks for the effort and intent to bring disparate souls together!

Before that happens, if it happens...does anyone know how to contact Tana & Mike (the B&B in James Canyon)?

Thanks for your efforts to keep it together, David. I agree that the trolls are irritating and occasionally offensive, but free speech is like that. I think there is also a great deal of interesting, entertaining, and useful content here. And we've all gotten used to ignoring a lot of what we read on the net. I vote to keep it, warts and all.

Like dude…chill.
No one wants to see this pad fade, but to be more like egalitarian cool? Voices here that are not in the click are like persona non grata capish? Like bar’k? Voices are like silenced. Good reason to not let you freak flag fly. Many dudes around here won’t even read this yet speak on it cause.

Your choir ain’t got eyes to see.

David, I understand your frustration and appeciate your commitment to the QT. May I suggest that you let the trolls do their stupid tricks if that's what it takes to keep this resource. Why these idiots insist on poking a stick in the eyes of the people who are presumably friends and neighbors, well, that is beyond me. Whether it's lack of intelligence or caring doesn't much matter. The idiots are out there and will not go away. Unfortunately, they will show their ugly faces one way or the other even witout a QT. In the past I've read some blather about the value of anonimity on the Internet. Let me remind the idiots that if the "powers" want to find you or know about you they will. The only way to stay anonymous in this day and age is to keep your mouth shut and stay off the Internet. So trolls, please do your community and especially yourselves a favor and go away.

So our clever trolls have figured out that this extra step of signing in will still not prevent them from signing on and antagonizing. I'm emailing with the developer to see what else can be set up to try and make it a little more difficult for them. But I'm done. I'm putting way too much energy into this and it's bumming me out. Despite the usefulness (critical nature?) of this board, the next anonymous post will be my cue to shut the QT down. Maybe not forever but for a while. I'm sure I'll get the "tantrum" critique from the same clever people but I think I'm down to the last bit of energy for this.

Sorry folks. David Mans

Not sure if anyone else has noticed the fish returning and running up the creek. We saw one launch up one of the drop pools to an upper one under lower main bridge. pretty cool sight. This means he made it up all the lower ones already!

From Garry Sanfacon:

With rising creek levels there may be localized flooding causing concern among the general public. If residents of unincorporated Boulder County believe there is an imminent threat to public safety, a private home, or public infrastructure (such as a bridge or road) please call either 911 or the Boulder County Road Maintenance Hotline at 303-441-3962. A deputy or road maintenance supervisor will then assess the situation and determine if there is an imminent threat to public safety, a private home, or public infrastructure. If the Sheriff’s Department or Road Maintenance Supervisor determines such a threat exists, the County will mobilize the county resources or on-call contractors to address the threat.
In addition, if you see a situation starting to become a potential problem (e.g., road damage, creek erosion, etc.) contact County Transportation Road Maintenance at 303-441-3962 and they will send someone to assess.
This protocol covers properties in unincorporated Boulder County only. Residents of towns and cities should contact 911 or their community’s street or public works department depending on the severity of the problem or threat.

So I've just made a switch to the posting options. This may reduce the effectiveness of the QT but I'm sick of dealing with the nonsense posted by anonymous people. I don't think that anyone will miss their "wisdom" one bit.

I'm not exactly sure how this will affect things but I believe that only people that are subscribed to the QT will be able to post. So you'll have to have signed in with an email. Your post will still only be associated with your chosen login name, not your email. The only thing I see that this will limit is the ability to reply through an email, you'll have to go to the webpage to post. Let me know if you're having trouble and I'll help you sort it out.

The biggest complaint that I've heard about the QT is that there is a lot of anonymous crap out there. I've always held that unless they were attacking someone directly and without merit there might actually be some value to anonymous posts. But most have felt otherwise and Just say'n is yet another example of why there's no reason to accommodate these people. They can troll somewhere else.

I'm sorry if this limits the usefulness of this board, I'm hoping that it won't. Maybe some of the people that have gone away due to the problem will consider dropping in again. It's really too bad that something so potentially useful has to be dragged down by people in the shadows. Email me if you're having trouble david (AT) jimtown . ORG

I have friends and some relatives who are Republicans. It's the politicians, on the topic of guns, that I have issues with. Calm yourself, "just say'n" - as you said who could take issue, and yet we have this huge problem of complicity...sorry to have stirred you up. I won't post more on this topic. Thank you David.

No it's not a Bronco support day but do wear some ORANGE on TUESDAY JUNE 2 in support of reducing gun violence in the US by education, proper protection in the home, background checks. The slogan from Moms Against Gun Violence says: "Not One More". Wear anything orange (and/or you can donate & order a black wristband from Moms that says "Not One More"). Check mine out; it's pretty cool!...as well as being a reminder (as if we need one) that the NRA & our Republican politicians need checks & balances (that's putting it mildly) on this topic.

Volunteers at Elysian

Got shovels?

We have 14 student volunteers doing work down at Elysian today. We are looking for the TOWN'S rounded shovels, which seem to have wandered off during previous volunteer days. If any ended up at your house, could you please run them down to Elysian ASAP? (Or call town hall and we can schedule a pick-up! Door-to-door service! 303-449-1806 - ask for Erika)

FREE We have two concrete "splash pads" left behind from our gutter job. You know, the cement troughs you can put at the bottom of a down spout to deflect the water coming out the down spout? They are about 3' long and about10-12" wide. Anyone want them? they are heavy to lift and remove, definitely need 2 guys to do it. If nobody want them, Colorado Seamless Gutters is doing a job up this way and will come by and get them in a couple of days.
They are beside our driveway in the front area - come and get 'em if you can use one or both! 3 Main St.

He got absolute rave reviews last time and we're excited to have him back.
Vegan and GF and dessert too.

According to weather underground, there's a 10-40% chance that it won't snow or rain for the next week. And if I hear "we need the moisture" I'll throw-up. 'Cuase in a month or so we'll be praying for rain.

Thanks for putting out a current report on the water issues; and thank you a thousand times you guys for all the very hard work you are doing to make our water safe!!!!!!!!!
Jamestown remains very very special Thank you!

We are going to give it a try and attempt some planting on Thursday, May 21st. The school will be out at our riparian area below Elysian Park from 9:30 am until 1:30 pm, or until rain drives us in. We can really use some extra hands, and look forward to seeing members of the community join us. Thanks!

Jamestown Water Treatment Plant Update
Wednesday, May 20, 2015

The Town’s water treatment plant has been experiencing operational challenges as a result of the change in the watershed since the flood. Spring runoff is in full swing, which has added additional treatment challenges for the water treatment system. The water treatment plant operators and the Town’s water engineer have been actively working to maintain safe drinking water and adequate water supplies through these challenges, and have been in daily contact with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to ensure public health is continuously protected.
The good news to report is that yesterday filter effluent turbidity was lower than it has been all month (1.2 NTU). However, turbidity has averaged 2.5 NTU this month and the low turbidity reported yesterday is most likely due to a drop in production rather than the increased turbidity removal in the filters. With rain forecasted through the end of the month, elevated turbidity will most likely persist for the near future. (Turbidity is cloudiness or haziness of a fluid caused by large numbers of individual particles that are generally invisible to the naked eye, similar to smoke in air. The measurement of turbidity is a key test of water quality. It is important because turbidity can shield microorganisms from disinfection and used as an indicator for particle removal.)
Water quality testing is underway to identify the characteristics of the turbidity passing through the filters. Based on initial test results, the turbidity is comprised primarily of colloids, which are very small particles. Approximately 90% of the particles in the filter effluent are colloids less than 1.2 microns in size, and the majority of the colloids are between 0.2 micron and 0.45 micron in size. For reference, microbial constituents of primary concern in untreated water are Giardia cysts, which are approximately 6 to 10 microns and Cryptosporidium oocysts, which can be as small as 2 micron. So, although effluent turbidity continues to be in violation of State regulations (< 1.5 NTU 95% of the time and ≤ 5 NTU at any time), additional filtering along with elevated chlorine disinfection, makes us (and CDPHE) confident that our water is safe.
Investigative steps are also underway to determine what can be done to enhance removal of these colloid size particles. The first round of testing with magnesium oxide to help with particle removal did not yield favorable results, so we are investigating further to determine if this is a viable solution or if other options need to be pursued.
Water treatment plant process steps will continue to include the roughing filters, slow sand filters, cartridge filters, and elevated chlorine residual as long as turbidity is 1.0 NTU or above. Water treatment plant operators and the Town’s water engineer will continue to work closely with CDPHE until such time as the filter effluent turbidity stabilizes below 1.0 NTU. The water system staff is working hard to address the ongoing operational challenges and provide safe water to the Town. We will keep you informed of any changes in water quality.
Thank you for your patience and support.

If anyone has regular size cement blocks that they want to get rid of during spring clean-up, we will gladly take them.
I can pick them up.

Hello again neighbors, I wanted to let locals know that our house on High Lake (off of Overland, across from Braemer) is going to be up for sale within the next 2-3 weeks. 1650 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, detached garage, hot tub, hardwood floors throughout, stunning divide view from the living room. ~1 acre of land. We will be listing it at just under $350K, but if we can sell it locally we can probably come down a bit off that price and avoid some commissions etc.

If anyone is interested or wants more info, email me at paulemurin@gmail.com or call me at 444-1242.
08:54 AM MT(US)
Anyone got a plumber that you can recommend for a location in Boulder?
