Yellow iron = heavy equipment.
Green iron = farming/agricultural equipment.

I have no idea what a yellow iron is.

Maybe I should go to more Town Board meetings?
They probably have an acronym for it!

Thank you Annamaria! Yes we would be very appreciative of the completion of Anderson Hill to help alleviate some of the current traffic! Safety is a major concern! Let's get that yellow iron rolling on to progress!

Hey, Neighbors. Let's play nice.

I, too, would like to know the status of the Andersen Hill project. I would like to see the bridge and road back again; it was my primary route, and a daily route for school drop-off and pick-up. (And I'll bet the Greathouses would also feel the relief of a second travelway up to Mesa!). I also think it is important for safety, as well.

I looked on the JamestownCo.org website for recent minutes but they haven't been posted yet. I would like to know the status, timeline, options, facts and figures. I am going to ask folks on Town Board for an update. I'm also going to ask Leesa, too, since I know she will be impacted by the project.

I don't presume everyone in town wants to hear what I think; I'm just putting it out there that there are ways to stay informed if we wish, and we can always express our opinions at the Town meetings or in letters to the Town Board.

Have a great weekend!

As a town member that loves and supports our wonderful Jamestown Elementary School, I think the rebuilding of Anderson Hill is very important .
Not only for the students but all the residents on Mesa and roads connecting.

Maybe ask your neighbors why there is no progress on Anderson Hill?? What is the hold up?? It should have started months ago! It would be excellent for all town members for this to begin and be completed. If there is a fire there is only one road out! Or if emergency medical care is needed, again there is only one way there and out. It sounds to me like someone needs to cooperate and allow the town to begin the much needed rebuilding of Anderson to begin!

We have a movable dishwasher to give away for free!
It needs a good home where it can be used :)
We have been using it every now and then but we do not have enough water pressure to run it correctly. Its one of those dishwashers on wheels that you pull up to sink to run when needed. New hoses were installed in it about a year ago. All the fittings for the faucet are included and there are many of them.
We might be able to drop it off at your location if your interested in taking it.
Let me know if you want it! angie@calwood.org

I love Amy's Bowls, just sat down for dinner, turned on the news and saw the recall for possible listeria contamination, too late. Lucky what I had wasn't on the list. What gets me is if you go to Amy's Bowls web-site, they don't mention anything about recalls. You have to go to http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm439397.htm. Amy's web-site is business as usual,no warnings what so ever, try our product...

Hi,

I am out of the US in San Marcos, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. I have my Post Office box key with me. What is the procedure for giving someone other than myself permission to clean out my PO Box at the Jamestown Post Office. I can't get through to the PO number from here by phone. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Is there a way to reach the post master via email? There is nothing I can find on the official USPO website to communicate to the Post Office via email.

Any suggestions -- are much appreciated.

Welcome to JamesVale.

Why is it that the Alaskan King Crabs that skitter back and forth
on the electric power lines are snatching only Canadian aircraft
from the skies? Could it be because the JamesVale Holiday Schedule
hasn't been published? In order to propitiate the crabs, here's
the holiday schedule:


Protane - Beltane celebration honoring Jeff, who drives for Fred's.

Cotton Mather Day - for puritans and witch burners alike

Clove Tuesday - bidis

Hash Wednesday - the ice process introduced, Feb 7, 2003

Handlemas - Doorknobs were introduced May 4, 1867

Feast of the Blessed Leprechaun/All Snakes' Day - March

St. Alan Turing Day (Geek Orthodox)

Palmistry Sunday

Festival of the Half Conspiracies (3.33 days)

Delousing Day

Rush to Judgement Day

Descension of the Lawyers into Hell Day

InDepenDance Day (dancing in depends) - July 4

Victory Over the U.S. day (French Canadian and Anarchist suburbs of Jimvale only).

Ignatius J. Reilly Day

Feast of Saints Kyle, Stan, Cartman and Kenny

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Appreciation Day

Handlemas - Doorknobs were introduced May 4, 1867

Insomnia Night - that's now.

Boulder County Forest Health Outreach eNewsletter – March 24, 2015 - *No Open Burning Today*
Today’s Forest Health Outreach update covers the following:
***Red Flag Warning Today (3.24.15) – No Open Burning***
*Forestry Tip of the Day: Where is your Firewood Pile?
*Sort Yards: Free Slash and Log Disposal Sites Open May 1

*Red Flag Warning Today (3.24.15) – *No Open Burning Today*
The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for Boulder County today until 6pm this evening. The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office Fire Management Team would like to remind you that there is NO OPEN BURNING ALLOWED in the entire county for the next 24 hours.

A RED FLAG WARNING MEANS THAT CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS
ARE EITHER OCCURRING NOW...OR WILL SHORTLY. A COMBINATION OF
STRONG WINDS...LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY AND WARM TEMPERATURES CAN
CONTRIBUTE TO EXTREME FIRE BEHAVIOR. – Courtesy of NOAA.Gov

*Forestry Tip of the Day: Where is your Firewood Pile?
As we move out of winter and into the warmer season it is a good time of year to make sure your “home ignition zone” is properly maintained. This time of year many people still have their winter firewood pile stacked on decks or against walls. Now is a good time to move firewood piles, scrap wood, and anything else combustible away from your home’s walls, off of decks and out from under decks.

Firewood piles should be stacked in an open area at least 30 feet away, on the uphill side of your home.

*Sort Yards: Free Slash and Log Disposal Sites Open May 1
The Nederland and Allenspark Sort Yards are both scheduled to open on Friday, May 1. Both yards will operate 4 days per week, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. (Correction: In the last eNewsletter we mistakenly stated that they would operate 5 days per week. Sorry for the mix-up.)

What is a sort yard? Boulder County has established two sort yards to collect logs, tree branches, pine needles, cut grass and noxious weeds from county residents. There is no charge to drop off material. Keep all types of material (logs, slash, yard waste, noxious weeds) separate within the load. Each type of material is unloaded in a different location. Full sort yard program details are available here: http://www.bouldercounty.org/property/fore...es/fhsortyards.aspx

Our opening date may be delayed due to spring snow. If there is snow in the air it is always wise to give our operational status hotline a call at 303-678-6368 before hauling.

Cheers,
Ryan

Hi Jamestown and mountain neighbors! I'm looking for a place to stay and re-root after losing my place at Joey Howletts. I work at Calwood so as close to Jamestown the better. Willing to trade or rent to own; all offers considered. Currently I am working on a children's book about the flood and playing violin as a hobby. I can be contacted phone: #720-841-8262. It is so wonderful to be here now after the flood and see things somewhat into a 'new normal'. Find me at the Merc or give me a call!

Hi neighbors!

Kyle and I are coming up on the end of our lease in the Bar-K and we’re going to be on a month-to-month lease after May. We’re just putting our feelers out there for any places that might be available for long term rent come summer time or early fall. It’s the two of us and Elvis - our well behaved (and adorable) hound dog. We’ve got multiple references we’d be happy to provide for us and Elvis. We’d love to be back in Jamestown proper but we’re open to places in the surrounding area. Please keep us in mind for any places that might be available. Thanks!
