This is a beloved old "baker's cabinet" that came from our cabin in Ward. It is quite functional and really pretty beautiful despite many years of service. It has a Corian countertop that also slides inside the top shelf unit. It's about 3.5' wide, 2.5'deep, and 6' tall. We're reluctant to get rid of it but have no room for it. An alternative would be having it enjoyed somewhere with an option to get it back? We'd sell it to the right person too. $75?

We also have a Murphy Bed frame that fits a Queen sized bed. This is all in one piece and ready to mount to the wall. Works great. $50.

At 99 Main St. 3/459-0203

We have a few things for sale/give away as we anticipate the removal of the shipping container in the yard. This is a small chest of drawers with all functional drawers and a rattan(?) opening chest with a single drawer. It is full of old VHS tapes, primarily kid/family stuff. These are free for the taking and currently in front of our house.

So I've got 10 baths of varying sizes but only three bedrooms. How much water can the house use? Every city or water district that I recall used the bedroom rule. Maybe that wouldn't work in Jimtown, but it seems fairer.

Mark Wisch - Ballots are not forwardable pieces of mail. I suspect your ballot went to the address you had in town. I suggest contacting the Boulder County Clerk and Recorder's Office. There's still time to get it straightened out. If there are others who did not receive ballots, this may be true for you as well.

Yes, Mark. We got ballots, blue books, etc. this past week.
04:38 PM MT(US)
You should have received your ballots by now I think. Mine came beginning of the week.

Has anyone received their ballots in the mail, yet? Jackie and I have not.

SATURDAY- PARKIN LOT is a fun Folk Rock Band- good to dance to and have a good time. Kyle is making smoked pulled pork plate with slaw and all the fixins. A great night to come on out.

I’ll second that notion, Alex. Things are gradually coming back. That last cold snap and wind we had knocked the color out of the trees and forced the leaves and pine needles to fall to the ground. As I walked the path along the edge of the creek, they are covering up some of the sand, and gravel, and beach front appearance the flood left behind. We should look pretty good in a few more seasons when it is all covered up and our alpine appearance returns. Even better, I was hiking about 300 yards above the Blue Jay mill site and ran across a young bull moose. Things ARE returning to normal.

Alex, we had a dipper-bird behind the house this spring. It was the first we'd seen in years. We felt that it was a "sign" of a return to normal too. I'm now waiting for the first fish sighting.
Alex Meeker 20 Main St
05:27 PM MT(US)
Well, the american dipper is back......otherwise known as a water ouzel. The dark gray bird that dips up and down as it goes upstream while feeding. I don't know if anyone else has seen one, but this is the first one I've seen since the flood!!
 This tells me that things are starting to return to normal. I've also seen rabbits in my yard, first time since the flood also.So let's hear it for coming back !Yeah !

I have an Asko setup, and have used Hi-Tech Appliance (303) 665-0951, who are a certified repair shop for Asko. They were good. I also have used Bruce who owns Appliance Master (303) 494-9147 for my fridge, and he is GREAT. I've recommended him to several friends, and they were all thrilled. Because he is independent, he is cheaper then Columbine. My friend Jen, up in the Bar-K, has a dryer that is down, maybe you guys could get the same shop come up to make to house calls. Call me 303-443-9546 if you want Jen's #

Thanks Lou, didn't realize you did appliances too. The dryer already hitched a ride to eerie with a friend who works in Lafayette though.

Do you LOVE Halloween? C'mon, you know you do.

Jamestown School is inviting any interested community members to help with the Halloween Party this year. We are looking for fun-loving, spooky-minded individuals to set up a haunted house, fish pond, mummy wrap, or any other creative activity you would like to propose. The party is short but sweet (from 5:30 - 6:30) on Halloween Night. It will be held at the school. Set up will take place on Halloween afternoon; specific time TBD. Some materials will be provided.

Come celebrate Halloween with the goblins at Jamestown School!

You can contact Beth at school or Annamaria on the QT if you are interested in increasing your fun-factor on Halloween night.

You tried digging into it JoeK and maybe troubleshooting yourself? I've found dryer's generally very simple appliances to fix. It's usually just a case of switching out old/failed parts.
Ben Perry

JoeK, I drive past a place called Specialty Appliance in Gunbarrel every day. Their website shows that they carry the Asko brand.

Please don't consider this a recommendation, since I've never used the place, but it's at least a local option.

11:18 AM MT(US)
Anyone recommend an appliance repair shop in boulder or longmont for an Asko(Swedish brand) dryer? Just called columbine and they closed down their boulder shop last year. I'd rather not drive it to eerie...

Chris don't take it personally-
There are good riders out there too. I used to ride a lot... a whole lot, and may be again. But I, like you, didn't take or impose unnecessary risk on myself or others and had a firm understanding of really simple physics== Me on a bike against a car or an SUV not good.... Please don't misconstrue. It is a subset of riders, the teams and club riders that are the worst and the occasional solo riders. I followed one down today- There was plenty of opportunity for him to let a car or two around, to be courteous, it has to be a two way street (Pardon the pun)but he was clearly making a statement and a really self serving one at that. I don't begrudge anyone for wanting to ride the canyons. But the pervasive attitude of the cycling community here is really crappy. Thanks for all of the help for the town and residents in need, but when I donate somewhere- it does not buy me a seat at the table. Simply put- Respect is earned, not doled out or mandated. Commerce built the roads and paying taxes maintains and repairs them. The cyclist I dealt with today has culpability and I should be able to identify him. He can me by a simple glance at my license plate. Several times in the last 17 or 18 years of my living, paying taxes and being a property owner I have given cyclists my tag numbers and name and asked them to please call the sheriff to settle the matter right now. I even gave a guy change for the pay phone outside the Merc one afternoon.
Sorry..... Greathouse on another long winded rant. In short. Chris it's not you. It IS a group of people that will never read this bulletin board though. Sorry- please don't be offended my friend.
When are you moving home?? It'll be good to have you guys back!

We are SO lucky to have the brilliant band TAARKA returning to the Merc this Thursday. They are nationally renowned, absolutely beautiful, and put on a really lovely show. For those of you who don't yet know of them, please check them out online. We have friends on the East and West Coast who are jealous that we get to have them come play for us here!
And is that weren't all-

Big Al the Super Hippie is making this season's specialty- Posole with Tamales. We're looking forward to it, see you all soon!
