If anyone has seen an elderly hound-mix, Kiki has been missing since 8:30a.m. Sunday morning. I have checked all the trails we usually walk, and not even a footprint, so I can only think that someone has picked her up. Please call if you see her: 303-459-1104 Thanks

We have always had great hummer turnout and no bear issues.
We always have several fuschia plants hanging on our front porch.Probably any brightly colored flower would work well and it's all natural- not leading to a feeding dependency and most of all no boo boo's

Our experience was like Dee;s. We stopped feeding a few weeks ago when the bears were so active (and I was forgetting to bring the feeders in), but the rufous we had were much less aggressive than in previous years

Farmer's Market tomorrow morning! 10-1:30 in front of the Merc.

Late August is bringing in the good stuff. Tomatoes are in full swing. Tomatillos, husk cherries, squash, greens of all sorts, beets, basil, beans, peppers and eggplants. And lots of beautiful zinnias, to bring some color to your home.


We love the support, thank you!

Kate,
  I definitely saw some Rufous this year, though not in the last couple of weeks. Unlike Dee's visitors, mine were bruisers with attitudes. Not certain, but fairly confident Ruby throat hummingbirds don't frequent Boulder county, what your seeing is probably male broadtails. I saw a ruby throat hummingbird last year in the western slope, in glenwood springs, and its a much different shade

Of course, she gets prizes and her goal is to sell 10 books by September 14th. Three ways to get in on this great deal:

- Mail $20 cash or check payable to "Ryan Elementary PTA" to ELISE WILLIAMS; P.O. Box 1; Jamestown, CO 80455

As I was driving down lower Lefthand Canyon Road and Recreation Area (LCRRA) today, I came across a bicyclist wearing a brightly colored peace sign on the back of his shirt and get this----he was riding in the bicycle lane going DOWN. I was flabbergasted to say the least, and thought to myself, could this be possible?? But it was, and he stayed in the lane even though it became quite narrow and I was able to pass him EFFORTLESSLY, without putting anyone in jeopardy! I wanted to buy the guy a drink, or give him some money, or call the Denver news at the very least.


Denver news: “A man wearing a peace sign T-shirt was sighted in Lefthand Canyon today riding in the bicycle lane going down, is this a sign of more peaceful times ahead??” Story at 11……………


Peaceful dude, you rock. Wishing you much peace, love and joy as you make your journey through life and Lefthand Canyon. May your good karma bring you great things in life!!! May others see you and adopt your ways!! Ride on!

Anybody available to help Katie Farmer get moved tomorrow (Sunday)? Many hands make light work, and she's only going from one place in JT to another, and loading a storage pod with most of the stuff. Helicopter Mom here doesn't want to do too much heavy lifting because of a wonky shoulder. We'd appreciate help, and she's bribing with pizza and beer!

a crisis, so it's off the the Merc for me!

Is anyone in Boulder that could stop at Guiry's (2404 Pearl Street) between 5pm and 7pm and pick up a couple gallons of paint for us? I would love to not have to drive down again today - I will make sure it is paid for and ready for pick up and I'll come to you to pick it up once you're back in the JT area.

I'm at work currently so 303-449-0603 extension 1 or jamieDOTpreiraATgmailDOTcom. After 4pm, I will only be available by email.

Thanks!

Thanks all you hummer-lovers. Glad to know some Rufous showed up. Sad we missed seeing them. The Ruby throats seem to be heading south. The little flock that hangs out at Casa Carbone is dwindling. We'll keep putting our feeder out in the morning for the stragglers.

I want to thank everyone who responded to the emergency with Maggie's broken arm on Tuesday night. It was so wonderful to have so many neighbors/first responders come to help and support. Speaking for our family, we all felt the love, and it was much appreciated (even if you did not actually provide service to Maggie).

On another note, does anyone in town have a smallish folding hand truck that Maggie could borrow to pull her big, fat, supersized school backpack while she is wearing a cast for the next 8 weeks or so? I've seen them in stores lately, but if I could avoid spending any more money I would gladly buy you some beers at the Merc (and keep the money local, at least).

Call me at Three OH! Three - For For Nine - Too For Nine Too. Thanks!

The Jamestown Library is up and running! We have a wide selection of current fiction, non-fiction and children's books. We also have a small selection of DVDs, which include several TV series. Come check it out. Speaking of check out, there is no check out. Everything is on the honor system. Come get a book or two and bring them back when you are done. If you absolutely want to keep a book, replace it with one you can live without. We are open when the town hall is open. If anyone would like to volunteer to help with the library, contact Christy Howe at 303-459-3218. We are always looking for helping hands.

For Lynnne B,

Long distance calls are still expensive.
They get folded into cell plans, etc., and you end up paying $60/month per line.
AFAICT, the telcos have just shifted the cost perception so you think it's cheap.

Now get off my lawn, you little !@#$%^&*'s

Dear Jamestown Community,

Here is a link to the presentation given at the Community Meeting this last Monday night, for those of you who could not make it: http://jamestownco.org/files/2013/12/Commu...-August-25-2015.pdf

The presentation explains the need for a property tax increase, the amount, the duration, and why it is critical to the survival of Jamestown as a locally controlled town. The last slide is a questionaire that you can print and drop off at the Town Hall by 5:00 this Friday to provide your feedback (JT Residents should have received an email with an online link, as well. If you are not on the email distribution list, please write erika.archer@jamestownco.org). At the next Board meeting on Monday (8/31), the Board has to decide what property tax increase to put on the November ballot. By reading the slides and then submitting the questionnaire you can help the Board to better understand the will of the community and to select the best alternative.

Sincere appreciation goes to Steve Edelstein for putting together this informative Powerpoint, Vic Harris for presenting the issues clearly at Monday's meeting, and to the DOLA team (Chris Fabian, Clay Brown, Cynthia Thayer) for providing the finance expertise.

The answering machine made me laugh. We told our 32 year old son about screening calls with an answering machine. He had no idea what we were talking about, when we told him about the "one ring" hang up he was totally confused. We had to explain that long distance calls were expensive so we would simply call, ring once to signal we were home safe, then hang up quickly so there would be no charge. He could not imagine life without caller ID. When the discussion moved on to email, we realized he had no idea what CC stood for and he had never heard of a carbon copy? Now this is a bright successful businessman in the real world. I think I failed my child. (don't get me started on car doors that require a key and Tupperware)

If you are looking for a really nice flowering shrub to fill in that empty space, may I suggest the Bluebeard flowering shrub. Check it on Google. It grows perfectly at our elevation, loves drought conditions, a little sun a little shade, and is a bee magnet. Mine have been in bloom for 2-1/2 weeks and are loaded with happy buzzers. The leaves are lanceolate, dark green with a silvery grey underside, and can be pruned back on the interior of the plant, if desired, to yield a nice fluorescent blue crown. They self replicate or you can root fresh cuttings.
