Also wanted to thank Mary Hubbard and Eco-Products for all of the plates, cups, bowls and utensils they generously donated to Jamestown last weekend. We are humbled by your support!

.....reason being, this guy could wander through town during the day and no one would probably notice him. He might just be considered as one of the workers. But if he were to see his image posted, at least he'd know that we are aware of him. Hopefully he'd just keep moving on through. The first place any stranger stops in town is the Merc. He probably hasn't been welcomed anywhere he goes, since relocating to the area and could be on edge these days.

For anyone not able to attend tomorrow's meeting at Altona Grange... this from the Daily Camera:

Boulder County and its engineering consultant, AECOM, will provide a presentation and collect feedback regarding permanent repairs to Lefthand Canyon Drive and James Canyon Drive at an open house on Wednesday.

The presentation is set from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Altona Grange, 9386 N. 39th St. The Altona Grange is located at the corner of North 39th Street and Nelson Road in Longmont.The meeting is open to anyone who would like to learn more about the projects and provide input on the design.

After the meeting, the county and AECOM will incorporate the public's comments into the final designs of permanent repairs to the two canyon roads. Repairs are anticipated to begin as early as 2015.

Members of the public don't need to attend the meeting to provide input. For those unable to attend, comments can be submitted in one of several ways. People can send an email to transportation@ bouldercounty.org, or mail a letter to: Transportation Department C/O Permanent Roadway Repairs, P.O. Box 471, Boulder, 80306

Wendy, We got to see these guys on our patio yesterday. The cinnamon cub came up to our mudroom glass door and stood up to look at his reflection. Beyond cute. We didn't have any feeders out, so no bad lessons taught.

Well they are just about the best dern country you can get anywhere and they are a huge Merc favorite-

Review following...

I’ll call this one now easily the BEST alternative country record of the year out of Colorado – and maybe the best alt-country record I’ve heard this past year, period. As I sit and listen to this record from beginning to end, yet one more time, what comes to mind is some of the best of Gram Parsons and absolutely among the best of Ryan Adams “country” records. Yes, this is heady company to place Todd’s voice and songs in, but it fits. I am instantly transported to my youth listening to the Byrd’s Sweethearts of the Rodeo, the Flying Burrito Brothers and then records like Whiskeytown’s Faithless Street in the early nineties. Had this record come out about the time of Steve Earle’s Exit 0 or Dwight’s Lookin’ for A Hit, or early Uncle Tupelo or Wilco, Todd would be a venerable heritage name today in the alt-country field. As it stands today, I’ll place this one high on the shelf of newly discovered lost rare gems of Americana/Alt-country-rock it’s really really really that good. A solid “10″

I agree with Hollis;also,after what happened not to long ago in the town I think people need to be informed and more viligant (death/murder iof S.H.)

Here's a not-very-good photo of Mama Bear and the 2 cubs. I hoped she'd turn and pose better. I was in my car and they were on the north side of the road in Lower James Canyon (just 1/8 mile above confluence with LHC). One cub was very cinnamon-y.

Can we print a picture of this creep and hang it around town? legally?
I read about this guy in the Camera a couple of weeks ago. He was reportedly camping north of Lyons, I believe.

Ronald Eugene Noel (Boulder County Sheriff's Office)

A sexually violent predator who has completed his sentence for a sexual abuse conviction in Oregon has registered with the Boulder County Sheriff's Office after moving to Colorado.

According to a notification from the sheriff's office, Ronald Eugene Noel, 52, has convictions in Oregon for first-degree sexual abuse, first-degree attempted sexual abuse and failure to register as a sex offender. He also has a Colorado failure to register as a sex offender case as well as multiple non-sex offense convictions.

Noel is unemployed and has registered as a transient camping in western Boulder County in the areas of Longmont Dam Road, Silver Lake, Bear Reservoir and Lefthand Reservoir.

Noel was last in custody in 2004 for 60 days for failure to register as a sex offender, and is not currently under any court ordered supervision. But because of the nature of his offenses he is required to check in monthly with the Boulder County Sheriff's Office.

"Typically sexually violent predators are required to register quarterly, but that is when they have a defined residence," said Boulder County Sheriff's Office Cmdr. Heidi Prentup. "(Noel) is a transient so he doesn't have a specific place he is registered, so he has to check in with us monthly."

The Boulder County Sheriff's Office is required to notify the public when an offender deemed to be a sexually violent predator is released from custody or moves into the county.

"We are required by law to notify the community when a sexually violent predator registers with the sheriff's office," Prentup said. "People are determined to be sexually violent predators by a criteria set in the law. We don't choose who is a sexually violent predator. There are strict guidelines depending on their convictions and the level of the sexual offense."

Noel is an alcohol and drug user and has targeted female children and adolescents, according to the notification. The notification also said Noel hangs out at parks and is "manipulative."

He is described as a white male with brown hair and blue eyes, 5-feet 9-inches tall and weighing 240 pounds.

To Whom It May Concern,
Those of us down canyon, in Springdale, are getting hammered by speeding vehicles. The noise, the dust and threat to our safety are not insignificant. Contractors and canyon residents alike are the culprits. The posted speed is 20 and many vehicles go through here, at a choke point, approaching 50. Since many of us have to park on the road we are often walking on it and all of us have had to inhale the dust or actually jump out of the way. Only one accident and a broken windshield so far, but more are a given with winter coming. Please help spread the word. 20 may not happen, but 30 is the normal speed limit in the canyon and not too much to ask when you are driving by our homes.

Hi Annamaria and everyone else who commented on Jamestown Connect, your comments mean a lot to me. Thank you.

The web site will remain up and available with all the posts.
11:11 AM MT(US)

We have really, really appreciated the Jamestown Connect over the past year. I have enjoyed the electronic ease of sitting back and relaxing (activities which are rare in my life these days) while at the same time staying connected and seeing our piece of the world through your artful eyes. Thank you!

I am wondering if all previous posts on the Connect can stay up?

Thanx to art from Martine and photos from our locals like Steve E., Sal, (& a few more), I was able to compile a 2015 Jamestown Calendar for the FIERCELY DETERMINED!
Mike's Camara- thanx to David Lanquist, printed the collage of people, bits of damage and rebuilding for a good price, so that half goes back to Rebuild Jamestown.
If you didn't get to purchase a calendar over our celebration weekend, and would like to, Please contact me- Aquadiva@jimtown.org or call/text me 303-541-9316, and I can include you for $20.00:)

What a beautiful weekend in our amazing mountain hamlet! Thank you to everyone who made the special events a reality. The Labyrinth is so perfect and so was everything else. Nothing better than square dancing (or attempting to do so), laughing, making art (I still have glue in my hair from the One Million Faces Project & maybe you do too?), enjoying hearty Jimtown vittles, hugs, smiles and more hugs, yes? The new year is off to a super start!

Just watched all those lovely videos - great music, great photos, great (and greatly disturbing) memories - thank you Steve, Sal & Mark. What finally made me crack was the photo of Joey filling the coolers with water for the cyclists. May we all remember to be as kind as our friend Joey was. Sure do miss that guy.

Thank you, Steve, for Jamestown Connect - it has been a wonderful resource for keeping up with our commUNITY - what a tremendous service you have done!

Leesa, sending all the love and good vibes I can muster! I'll be back in the 'hood come October, and will be happy to help you in any way I can.

Julie and all who worked to create the Labyrinth, what an amazing piece of work! I was feeling so low on the day of the potluck that I didn't even want to square dance, so Katie and I went to the Labyrinth, and it was so helpful to just walk it and it helped to clear my mind. At first I wondered "why on earth do we need a labyrinth?" Now I know. Thank you, thank you, thank you. :)

We're looking for a shelf system to borrow for a month or so. Ideally they would be 4' wide, 2' deep, 5' tall. Anything in that neighborhood would be awesome. Will get it back to you. Not as excited about a 2x4 structure but would probably consider if it's relatively streamlined. Thanks! david ATJimtown dot org 3/459-0203

If you walk the labyrinth, you may want to read the poem that Deborah read at the dedication:

In my beginning is my end . . . . In order to arrive there,
To arrive where you are, to get from where you are not,
       You must go by a way wherein there is no ecstasy.
In order to arrive at what you do not know
       You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.
In order to possess what you do not possess
       You must go by the way of dispossession.
In order to arrive at what you are not
       You must go through the way in which you are not.
And what you do not know is the only thing you know
And what you own is what you do not own
And where you are is where you are not . . . .
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

(Excerpt from Four Quartets by TS Eliot)

MAMA BEAR & TWO ADORABLE CUBS are often crossing James Canyon these days down here in our neck of the woods. This is the most important reason of all to SLOW DOWN. Please pass this on to the truck drivers and all others because under current conditions it is a tragedy waiting to happen.

Dear Leesa, I will be sending you love light and prayers for your health and well being. I had a lumpectomy myself some years ago, and it was not so bad, fortunately, it was not malignant. I refused the needle biopsy, and told the surgeon, Sandra Taylor, to just go and remove the lump. She was really great. I decided never to get a mammogram again. I now have weird ovarian stuff and have been refereed to surgery, but due to lack of funds and insurance, will just have to have faith that all is fine.I would love to get some acupuncture, but do not have funds at this time. Someone from a charity group is going to send me a voucher, if you are at all up to filling the paperwork out, it is supposed to cover acupuncture.up to 500.00. I can't call long distance from my new phone, or I would have just called you. I really believe you can kick breast cancer's ass. Let me know when you are up to doing some acupuncture , and want to schedule. My new phone number is 303=459-0215. I believe you can help fix me.For some reason the phone only rings 2 or 3 times, so I often do not make it in time, so try again, if you call. Thanks, and healing to you!

THANKS for Jamestown Connect this past year, Steve. It did the job you intended -- kept us together virtually, provided us much needed info without being too overwhelming, and really kept us CONNECTed with individual stories of US. Thanks for creating and maintaining it! One important request: PLEASE KEEP POSTING THE SUNDAY REFLECTIONS even if you only post them here on the QT!!! This is my very favorite part of turning on my computer every Sunday! Love to all in my commUNITY.
