    Hello neighbors
    I have an antique ring that was my great grandmothers (apparently it is from Scotland), and I would like to discuss my options with a jeweler, to have it re-sized, etc.. it is very ornate and lovely. I don't know any jewelers in the area and am looking for a recommendation. cynthia.fitzgerald.cfe AT gmail.com

    A member of my family is a public defender in Alamosa. She reports the jail there has no reading material for inmates and would like to change that. If you have paper back books or magazines such as Nat'l. Geo. or other suitable material, I would pick them up Sat. or Sunday...this weekend, as I will see her Monday! 303-459-0172 and we appreciate your donations.

    HEADS UP! It is time for our annual Adopt-A-Road clean up. Our annual participation began in 2003. We should be proud of our work and gratefully we see less and less trash along our route as the years advance. Our date is JUNE 2. Mark your calendar now, call Sally 303-459-0172 to commit June 2 at 9:00 a.m. 400 Rock Lake Rd. Bring gloves, water if you wish, appropriate clothing and if this is your first time participating, you must view a short methamphetamine lab waste video. This project only takes about an hour and a half! (See the "site" below!)

    Jeff, WHAT? You can make your own coffee at home?? For FREE?? Who knew? Thank you!! You just saved us about a million dollars in a Starbucks franchise, not to mention the headaches of super picky customers... "I'll have a Venti double latte with organic cream, not cream from cows, I want that special cream from llamas in Peru who only eat lavender flowers on odd days while their owners rub their backs, with light ice, crushed not cubed, with that cute little heart shaped swirl on the top". Thank you!! We will be over every morning at 6 AM for our "fix" Jeff!

    The hummers are in town, the aspens are leafing, and there's no forecast for snow. Nancy & Larry, I just bought a new espresso machine....Maybe we can go independent instead of being a Starbucks? :-)

    We have property with a house in Matoons Highlands, just west of Bar-K and east of the church camp. We have enjoyed it for 40 years. Love the area. We are retired and now only live in Matoons for 4 months during the summer. Since I am a "seasoned" citizen I would like to find someone in one of the nearby areas who is interested in house cleaning work. It is a big job for me to open up the "cabin" and get it running. I would pay by the hour.
    We will not be there until the first week in June. Exact date tbd. You may reach me at 520-599-6471. Would like to have service over the 4 month period this summer also.
    Good way to make some extra cash!

    Is anyone missing a very small,wet Chihuahua? He or she was in the road at the top of the hill at the entrance to the K. With the fog and all, I was worried about him getting hit, so we brought him home with us. We are at 157 Ridge or call 0370 or email juliasummers2 at gmail if he’s yours. Or if anyone knows who he (or she) belongs to, please let us know.

    Nancy and Larry, If you succeed in getting your permit,(I won't protest it , since you decided not to be a Starbucks franchise) Can you toss all the Elk and moose parts that you don't need, over here for my dogs, and future wolves in my wild life refuge? We could really help each other out! You won't have to pay for garbage removal of the bones and skins, and I'll save money on dog food!
    If anyone has any old lead paint still taking up space in your sheds or garage, please send it over. I'll just use it to paint the house inside and out when we redo it, after making a killing in the real estate market, selling the cabin!
    I was also considering opening a dispensary here, for when people have had too much caffeine at the cafe', they can chill out with some super kind bud, all organic of course.
    If I make enough money at these business endeavors, then I could buy a hyperbolic oxygen chamber, to sleep in my lead lined room at night. During the day I could charge people a bunch of money for hourly sessions, to help them with all their chronic diseases.
    I'm also thinking about setting up a sweat lodge down by the pond, and having a native medicine person here , living in a teepee, doing traditional ceremonies, which can serve a dual purpose of detoxing , while keeping away any bad vibes or evil spirits. I don't know why I had not thought about all these things sooner, especially the lead paint for the house!

    So much information on these towers!! Nancy has decided to give up on her dream to open a Starbucks on Bridger Trail, we hear they use child labor to pick those coffee beans in South America and we do not want to support such bad behavior. So...we have decided to team up with the "tower people" instead. We will be applying for a permit to build something really special that we think will fit right in with the Bar K...we will call it "Devil's Tower BBQ and Salmonhead Cafe", featuring delicious BBQ which does NOT use microwaves (fries your brain) or real fire (fries your land), it uses the "radiation" emitted from the tower to slowly and deliciously cook meat! The meat we will use will come from Estes Park golf course elk run over by impatient tourists and baby moose hit by insane pizza delivery drivers. We promise the fastest internet speeds west of Longmont, so come and eat, relax and be sure to bring your laptop or cell phone for hours and hours of fun with your face planted in the screen, not talking to a single person sitting at your own table! No reservations required!!

    I am new to Bar-K and just learning how its residents use the QT, but it strikes me that it would be in everyone's best interests if they refrained from posting anonymous messages meant to ridicule individuals. It is unfortunate that there cannot be a civil conversation about actual studies and legal cases regarding towers and their potential effects on health, property values, etc.

    Hey Sal, would the Bar-K Ranch QT be open to adding the SOB (Save Our Bears) Bear Tracker Reporting App to your QT. This App allows users to report sighting, warning etc, helping us track and follow the bears ~ the Good, the Bad and the Ugly. I need to talk to Michelle but i am thinking it would benefit both our neighborhoods. Let me know.

    Scott Ahern,
    You are correct regarding the smart phones, and exactly why I rarely use one. Mine is usually dead, I forget to charge it and often don't even take it with me when I leave the neighborhood, which is why I bought it , just for emergency calls.
    However ,I still would not like the towers built in the neighborhood.
    There is strong evidence that the EMFs are a major contributing factor to the increased rates of autism, now 1 in 5-6 children are somewhere on the spectrum.
    People can choose to use the smart phone all the time or and take the risks.
    I am glad I didn't even know how to use a computer when I was pregnant with my kids, and never even had a cell phone when I was pregnant with my children. other than the old analogue one We should have some choice about how much Electromagnetic energy is flying around the ranch here, and I believe there is enough already.
    Would you want your pregnant wife living close to one of those towers? and your unborn children constantly bombarded with all sorts of man made frequencies?
    I am afraid people with growing families would just not take the risk of living near a tower and lower the real estate values in the neighborhood.
    We are either going to end up with a majority of older folks here, aging with chronic health issues, or some developmentally disabled autistic kids needing special care, if their parents are oblivious to the affects of smart phones, wifi, etc.
    I think we should all be able to make informed choices, and if no one else is going to try to inform people about doing their own research and being informed enough to make the choice to use all the technology or choose not to, it might as well be me.
    And hopefully people are conce5rned about the developing moose and wildlife also! Nice moose pictures , Sal!
    This is a designated wildlife migration corridor after all, and why we are not supposed to have fences that prevent wildlife from getting through the neighborhood easily.
    It's a lovely riparian zone, just full of natural wonders, wildlife and plants in the forest. birds can be disrupted by the frequencies also, and their migration compass affected.
    It would be sad if all the sudden they all started steering clear of us, or had birth defects and got ill.
    I was really hoping it would be someone else honestly, but no one was really mentioning it, so I feel compelled to .

    Hello Phil,
    Thank you for wandering down the thorny path of towers and high speed internet. I did rf design and site development for 15 years for various Cell phone companies. As you stated,the rf signals emitted from the towers are extremely low. If you want to be concerned about radio frequency radiation, look no further than the smartphone in your hand. You receive far larger doses of radio frequency radiation from that, then from any of the towers proposed. I also work from home and welcome any improvement in the internet speed and reliability in the Bar K. Thank you for taking this on.

    We are pretty low tech folks,Joe Desimone,and don't have a microwave in our kitchen (intentionally,because they mess with my head)We're looking for a land line phone that is not cordless.No electric alarm clock or wifi router near the bedroom.We plan on moving the smart meter away from my house, and replacing it with an analogue meter, which I have already discussed with Excel energy, that said I could hire an electrician and do that.
    Ironically, I was looking into these things BEFORE any of us knew about these proposed towers, because the EMFs can affect MY BODY AND BRAIN! We are remediating the house completely, to eradicate mold spores(which get activated by electromagnetic waves), gutting it, and replacing everything, as soon as we sell the other house(which was supposed to happen last fall)
    We had a lot of water damage to our house,and are still in flood recovery here, hoping to be done next year.We have been planning this remediation and renovation for years, to improve our environment at our house, and eliminate everything I have been reacting to. Our youngest daughter just developed an autoimmune issue this year also, and she still lives here. I have Drs who's protocols I am following right now, that are recommending this be done. My life and quality of life, and future of my family living here depends on it. Our plans were already being made prior to finding out about your microwave towers, that you plan on putting here(if you get the permit),Elevations Ethernet!
    Your resume is more concerning than comforting to me, Phil Quigley,you too Joe...the FCC is fast tracking much of this and vowed to do so with local governments. (I'm not even going to get into what the other agencies you mentioned you were with are doing with this technology currently)Obviously you and Joe are working together to some degree on this project, and I don't need to ease up on my concerns that affect me and my family and neighbors. I am well aware of the propaganda you both are reading off of, put out by the FCC to fast track all this "progress" in communications networks. I even watched some FCC videos telling people how much money there was to be made in this business.There are pro technology people such as yourselves ,that believe these artificial EMFs are completely safe...
    On the other hand, studies are emerging to demonstrate that EMFs, including non ionizing ones, may be unsafe, even low frequency ones.
    While we still need decades more research to understand the influence of Wifi radiation,people around the world are reporting debilitating or chronic symptoms, with names like "digital dementia","Wifi allergies", and there are even particular pathogens (that normally live in the body without causing as much harm) getting stimulated by the electromagnetic waves, wreaking havoc on immune systems.
    Our entire bodies, heart, brain, Mitochondria, and liver enzymes also operate based on electrical conductivity and light energy.The human body is a sophisticated electromagnetic system, and some of ours(especially mine) are very sensitive, perhaps some of you are just not affected much, or yet...perhaps I am your "canary" although I'm guessing I am not the only one.
    France , Australia , and Sweden even compensate people for the disorder.Canada has been looking into it with school children also more recently. There is an entire population of humans and animals being affected, so I wish we could at least limit it here in the Bar K Ranch.Our bodies own natural electrical systems are very weak compared to man made electrical signals. Some medical professionals think Wifi could be a large influence on the increasing rates of autism, Alzheimer's,MS, Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis, and other autoimmune cell dysfunction related diseases ,triggered by cell pathways not functioning properly due to signals affecting the cells mitochondria.People also sleep better when not being bombarded with EMFs.
    The US also has the least regulation of this industry in the world, thanks to the propaganda from the FCC.It may not be a cell tower, but my neighbor's cell phone works here, yours probably would too.
     
    "We are particularly sensitive to avoid interference of these frequencies as this would have a negative impact on the existing providers and household Wifi routers"-Phil Quigley.
    I think you should be as sensitive to the developing children here at the Bar K Ranch!
    Your signals can be strong enough to interfere with the other frequencies,(unless you use another frequency altogether, with the FCC license you have)I hope that you can also be particularly sensitive about interfering with my remaining brain cells, and other cell's functions.What about my mitochondria, liver enzymes, I am much more sensitive than the neighbors wifi router!
    I have been spending a lot of money on herbal medicine, supplements, and a personal health coach, and they are coaching me on how to reduce my EMF exposure in my house.
    I may be extra sensitive,but have been doing my own research, and following protocols from Drs. that agree with limiting EMF exposure, especially Wifi towers nearby.
    I'm getting personal because it's a personal issue for me. Those towers will be like giant microwaves as far as my brain is concerned, I don't have a microwave here, why would I be ok with a big one outside, that is also ruining the view for me of nature?

    Nedernet does not have to be licensed by the FCC because their frequency does not require it(unlikely that the other 4 companies require it) Elevations Ethernet does, and it's likely to change and upgrade also, to 5G in the very near future,according to the head of the FCC. The other companies did not have to get permits in the neighborhood, or I may not have been very happy about them either , (if I got a post card in the mail from the county telling me about them, for a special use review)

    This is a residential neighborhood, not an industrial complex zoned for businesses, and we already have adequate wifi ISPs here,which do not require a FCC license,and 50 ft towers to operate(at least not where there are houses that can see them, requiring a special use review)We bought this house with a double lot, an aspen grove and other flora and fauna in the adjoining lot,to buffer our view of other houses and have the south view facing those aspens intentionally. The pond and bordering open space were perfect too.My dreams and hopes of staying here forever, are being crushed by your plans.I was really don't want to sell everything and move after putting down roots here for 20 years, and 25 in Boulder County.

    I am begging you to change you mind! and not go through with your plans to ruin our neighborhood's appearance and some people's health!Please, just don't build them here, Phil Quigley and family and friends of EE, wanting higher speed internet. Sell those lots or make money building houses on them.You can make just as much money building and selling houses, as competing with the existing ISPs here.
    Please put one of your towers in your friend Ben Perry's yard, to accommodate his need for high speed internet , and those around him that want it,instead of our neighborhood.
    I also already checked out your prices and they are already higher than I am paying now for 12 mbps, And who is to say that once you get going you won't raise your rates??? There are not even 210 houses around here to provide service to, so how are you going to make money, and when are you going to upgrade?I am pretty sure you will upgrade after reading agendas from the FCC, with their plans to upgrade asap. I'm not so worried about the current unlicensed ISPs in the neighborhood, even Sal said less is better.

    I do not want to get embroiled in an online debate, but I feel I must warn others not to be so quick to dismiss Jackie's fears. As someone who teaches and conducts research on environmental hazards at CU Boulder, I can tell you there are growing concerns within the legal and public health communities about the effects of these kinds of towers not only on individuals' physical well-being but also the value of their properties. They also agree that these sorts of projects should be discussed with community residents BEFORE they are formally proposed. Otherwise residents feel railroaded and forced to express their objections strongly.

    We appreciate everyone’s feedback and would like to alleviate any fears about EM pollution and our technology with the Tower Application we have in process. We are in the planning cycle with the County Building Dept in determining the frequencies and the maximum operating radio emissions from our Wifi tower access points that provide communications distributing our Wifi internet to the Bar-K and surrounding areas.

    The operational frequencies for our access points we have selected based upon an extensive spectrum analysis of frequencies in Bar-K will be 900 MHz and 3.6 GHz. Of those frequencies, the maximum power at the access point will be +20 dBm (0.1 watt). At client residences the client installation radio will operate at a maximum power of -20 dBm (0.00001 watt). These levels of operational power have been determined by the FCC through extensive studies to be safe for high density residential areas. We operate at a very low power application of Wifi technology in order to be conscientious of EM radiation pollution and minimizing any interferences with common household electronics (Wifi routers, garage door openers, weather stations, smart home appliances, security cameras, etc.). Additionally, our spectrum analysis survey has determined the primary frequencies being used in the Bar-K area for existing Wifi utilization is the 5.0 to 5.8 GHz Bands and secondarily 2.4 to 2.5 GHz Bands. We are particularly sensitive to avoid interference of these frequencies as this would have a negative impact on the existing providers and household Wifi routers.

    As the head of engineering for Elevations Ethernet, I have 35 years experience with RF and Optical Systems Engineering. I have served the aerospace, military, law enforcement, industrial, and consumer markets. I have restrained from posting information on the QT as the planning process is still underway with the county. Please if you have additional questions or concerns feel free to contact us directly by email at ElevationsEthernet@gmail.com or by phone at 303-459-0185.

    Jackie,
    You need to ease up on your fears. Your claims of "disease causing environment" due to radio emissions from a WiFi installation are unsubstantiated.
    As an electronics design engineer who has spent 35 years working in various forms of wireless communications from high power broadcast, military radar, down to micro powered radio identification products (RFID) your claims that these installations will degrade the quality of life for Bar-K residents are not grounded in reality.
    I too have read many of the studies of the health impacts non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation can present to the human body. But these studies are mostly for cellular and broadcast installations where the radio field densities are many many orders of magnitude higher than a distributed internet "WiFi tower".

    The proposed WiFi system is not a "cellular" installation. It is basically a more sophisticated form of a home wifi wireless router using the same frequencies allocated for such applications (2.45GHz and 5.8GHz). The output power from the directional antennas will be a few watts at best. Your perceived threat of excessive exposure to such high levels of radiation to cause physical damage is unwarranted. A typical cellular installation can have many hundreds of watts of power depending upon the number of co-located providers and sector antenna clusters. You are exposed to higher levels of radio radiation leakage from your microwave oven not to mention the countless other electromagnetic fields created by house wiring, appliances, computer monitors and other consumer electrical devices then these WIFi tower installations will ever present. FYI your microwave oven uses the same frequency as the WiFi.
    Having worked around 100kW and higher power transmission systems (megawatt with radar) I am fully knowledgeable of the hazards (and safety protocols) radio frequency energy can present to unshielded individuals, and equipment. I can honestly say these WiFi installations are not one of them.

    As far as the aesthetic concerns regarding the tower visibility these can easily be met with camouflage paint and other disguising techniques used by the cellular industry. The irony is many of the trees surrounding these towers will be as tall if not taller providing natural camouflage.

    My only concern regarding this new installation is have the owners of Elevations Ethernet performed a spectrum analysis and created a channel coordination plan shared with the other providers to minimize interference. There is only so much spectrum and channelization to utilize in the WiFi ISM frequency bands. If this has not done then adding a 3rd local terrestrial wireless internet service will not improve internet connection speeds for bar-k users but serve to only degrade the existing services in place. In this situation everyone loses.

    Lastly, I have been a resident of Bar-k for 20 years and have not been paid by Elevation Ethernet to make these statements. I provide them freely as a electronics professional.

    Jack,
      Want to know why I am so hypersensitive? There are literally thousands of peer reviewed studies regarding the health impacts of wifi towers,
     and Ben, condescendingly stated that it was exaggerated and made up, not reality...
     which is both insulting and false at the same time. Ben does not even live in this neighborhood! and he does not have to live close to them!

    What is even worse, is if these towers actually get approved, we will have to sell both of our houses and move elsewhere,
    all because people don't think they can survive here without faster internet than is already available here.
    I wonder how they are managing to keep their jobs? with such inadequate internet all these years...
    What is really concerning is where will we move to? there are not many places that we can have work(which Pete has to drive to every day) schools,enough space for us, etc.
    that don't have all this high speed internet wifi tower EMF, and disease causing environment.

    I also really wanted to get a horse! where else can I live that has community stables for horses , that we could possibly afford to live in? This could kill my dream of having a horse!
     
    This was it for our family, or so we thought...until some company decided to try to build wifi towers, so that a few neighbors , and busy bodies from other neighborhoods, can have the fastest damn internet in the world, and not have to reenter any data on their amazon orders or whatever...

    To me ,this is worth getting hypersensitive over, because my life, and my families lives are going to be severely altered ,if these towers get approved.

    Data distribution using fiber optic technology has many advantages. However anyone who works with it will confirm it's not "perfectly safe", you're not supposed to look directly into the end of the cable, there's a risk of eye damage. In any case there's no fiber optic internet connection available up here anyway.

    Unless you are using a satellite-based internet connection, you are already connecting to an existing tower, nearby. Both Full Signal and Nedernet use a wireless connection to the endpoint. I'm not sure what frequency Full Signal uses but Nedernet uses 2.4 and/or 5 GHz, just like your router inside your home. Nowhere near the equivalent of beaming microwaves. You likely get more stray ElectroMagnetic Field from your clock radio beside your bed, or your personal router.

    Working from home, the issue is usually response time, not so much the sustained data transfer speed. Entering text commands into a screen, for example, uses a thousand times less bandwidth than loading a web page with a bunch of pictures. A delay of a few seconds can mean the difference between successfully completing a task, and having to enter the commands again.

    You've been paying a tax for a long time, part of the intent of which was to ensure that the telecomm companies extended affordable internet to rural areas. In other words, they've been collecting money so they could build out their infrastructure, but they haven't done it. Years ago, we mountain residents had to petition the PUC, first to eliminate the long-distance charge to call anywhere, including Boulder, and next to get private party phone service. Sadly, the Colorado PUC does not handle complaints about internet coverage.

    Those of us who remember dial-up internet think it's downright marvelous to have anything resembling fast internet up here. Unfortunately, the network congestion, possibly due to numbers of households watching Netflix or YouTube all day, or doing massive BitTorrent downloads, unthinkable activities to the dial-up generation, create an environment where it's tough to do computer work from home, reliably.

    I am curious about what wireless distribution technology the controversial new towers would be using.

    Ben Perry,
    You just did disparage my opinion, and the extensive research I have been doing, by referring to it as hyperbole .You don't have to live close to it,or view right out your window. What exactly kind of work do you do from home ? that requires such high speed internet? Why don't you see if they can build a tower in your yard,in your neigborhood Ben?

    Dave Y, don't know you , but you also disparaged my comment,and referred to it as hyperbole, just because you want the convenience of faster internet.

    I'm not sure where you all came from, or why you moved here to bring your conveniences with you, only to disparage the lives of people that have lived here much longer, and invested everything they have ,believing that it could never change in any dramatic way, from when we purchased our homes, in forestry zoning.
    We figured there might be a few more houses built on plotted lots, zoned forestry, but we never imagined 50 ft wifi towers in our view.

     (And the fake tree doesn't make up for it Hollis. It's still beaming microwaves and EMFs all around.)

    If everyone read every page of the proposal for the permit, it's only for the actual towers, and does not specify the exact technology or Hertz- Megahertz output, nor does it say if the technology on the top of the tower will change to the proposed FCC agenda of 5G network in the near future, so everything will then be upgraded.
    Fiber optics is a perfectly safe technology for high speed internet and it's secure.

    We love the mountains and all that that means or we wouldn’t be here. We also make compromises with modernity.

    I do not primarily work from home, but I work at home often enough that fast internet is extremely useful. The first six years I lived here my internet was sporadic, unpredictable. I’ve been a customer of our neighbors the Quigleys for the last two years. It is the fastest internet I have ever had, including in my office at CU Boulder.

    Is this one of those compromises worth making? Up to you. But, as Ben Perry put it so beautifully, evaluate the proposal based upon reality and not hyperbole.

    A perspective on the proposed internet towers from over here on Bramer.

    The owners of Elevations Ethernet, the Quigleys, ARE your neighbors. Not neighbors in the right-next-door sense, but certainly in the larger context of being "Overlanders." I've known Cherie Quigley for a decade, which goes back long before they'd even considered starting this kind of business. They are good people, and I trust that what they're attempting to do is in the best interest of both themselves and their neighbors.

    There's been a number of references to the health and property value impacts of "cell towers" here on the QT. For the sake of clarity, this proposal does not seek to install AT&T or Verizon-style cell phone towers (which are what the studies about health and fertility and such are in reference to). What Elevations proposes is roughly equivalent (though admittedly taller) to what already exists in the Bar-K Ranch: redistribution towers for Internet-only service. Operating at low power, it's very unlikely that these represent any kind of health risk... but if they do, it's similar to what already exists in the ranch.

    As a 12-year area resident who does, in fact, work from home, and for whom the existing internet providers in the neighborhood have been unable to provide adequate service, I am in favor of the proposal to add additional towers to extend Elevations Ethernet service. I have commented to the county accordingly. The opportunity to ditch my current expensive and bandwidth-limited ViaSat service is appealing to me, and I personally see very little downside to the proposal.

    Admittedly, we wouldn't have to look directly at the proposed towers from our property, and I am sympathetic to those of you that would. And as someone with a strong libertarian streak and a live-and-let-live mentality, I would never disparage anyone who chooses a different way of living or has a different perspective on Elevations Ethernet's proposal. I would simply ask that you keep an open mind and evaluate this proposal based upon reality and not hyperbole. Thanks for reading.

    Our family has been living in this neighborhood for 20 years now, We had hoped to stay here, and fix up our house , when we sell the house on Jed smith Rd.

    The proposed towers will be visible and affect both houses, and their real estate values, as well as our view.
    We were planning on refinancing this year also.

    Besides the real estate values, I would encourage people to research the health impacts of this technology.even though that is not allowed to be a legal issue. (thanks to the FCC and previous legislation that they have passed)

    There is a lot of information available on line , with research to back it up.
    There are also numerous YouTube videos made by Drs, and others, regarding this research and technology. Especially at risk are the young children and developing unborn fetuses and fertility.

    I realize that some older people that have moved here recently, seem more concerned about having their on line shopping order go through, without any interruptions or inconvenience for even a few hours,but please consider the future of young growing families, that would like to live here in the mountains for the enjoyment of the natural way of life, without the towers. Also consider that we have the convenience of at least a few wifi ISPs available here already.

    We all put up with some inconveniences in order to live in this beautiful place in the mountains.We chose to live here without every convenience available in other places .
    If your work from home jobs were affected by the current available internet, you would simply be renting an office space in town, or have to actually travel to your place of work like most of us that have been living here for a long time have to do anyway. We put up with these relatively minor inconveniences to preserve our views and lifestyle choice of living in a remote area in the mountains.

    Please also consider your neighbors that have lived here for a long time ,and have started ISP businesses to provide you with wifi, before you ever moved here, and support those small businesses. rather than support something that will change everyone's views , natural environment, and real estate value's and investments permanently.

    Please make sure you take the opportunity to make a public comment to the County planners by Monday, May 7th.
    Thanks, and have a nice day!

    Eggs are ready!

    Fresh, brown, gorgeous eggs from organic-fed hens for sale streetside at 790 Rock Lake Rd. from 8AM - 2PM today and tomorrow (Sat and Sun).

    $5/dozen, or $.50/by the egg. They're in the cooler - on the honor system. Please help yourself.

    (The picture is of the ladies enjoying some fresh organic sprouted barley - a daily part of their diet. The barley takes 8 days to go from seed to carpet (3-4"). We raise it in a warm spot in long gutters and tear off a length each day. Doesn't even require sunlight.)

I don’t have four wheel drive which is why I just moved back recently - ive got good tires so once I make it up that first hill on overland I’m usually good but it was so slushy today I couldn’t get traction . My event is at four tonight so I think I’m gonna wait it out and see what it looks like although the forecast isn’t looking too hopeful - thanks for the offer sal I will give you a call if I have any issues.

    For our own peace of mind, and the health of our horses, we have a CSU Extension office poisonous plant expert coming to inspect our property in mid June. The cost is $55 and includes a detailed report of the plants/trees on the property. If anyone else is interested in this service, please call me directly at 805-three nine zero, nine zero fifty five. Leave a message if I do not pick up. Might as well make the trip up here worth her time. Nancy

    Kate and Jackie, Thank you for your input and offer to help. I will contact the CSU Extension office! If they are willing to drive up here and walk our property with us, that would be great! My horses will be restricted to their own back yard turnouts for this summer. Perhaps they will get the opportunity to run around in the common pastures by this fall, but that is yet to be determined. These horses have never been out free on pasture to graze, always fed hay and grain, so we (and they) have a lot to learn! Thank you for your help. We are so looking forward to riding the local trails!

    Nancy and Larry,
     I was going to volunteer to walk around your yard and ID plants, but after looking up poisonous plants,
    realized you should get an expert. Although I know there are some in the pastures that are listed,
    The mountain horses tend to avoid them,(not sure about city horses) if grass is available.
    I don't want to be liable for yours getting sick.so I deleted that post.

    You should probably avoid putting your horses on the pastures the mountain horses here graze, if you are concerned.
    I would be happy to Id some plants in your yard, if you like, call 0215

These "city" horses have never been out on pasture or any type of free grazing, always on a dry dirt paddock (yes, they will LOVE their new home!). Can anyone advise us on toxic, poisonous plants we need to get rid of on our land? Internet search shows MANY plants but I am not sure what we have up here that we need to clear out. Any help and advice would be appreciated. Thanks neighbors!

    I just called the Sheriff’s department (non emergency line) and they said that they are not aware of a fire anywhere nearby and that it’s possible smoke is blowing in from Arizona.

    However, they want us all to keep a lookout for plumes or any local fire signs just in case. If in doubt call 303.441.4444 and chat with them.

    Just a quick PSA to remind everyone that a pet's microchip is only as useful as the current registration. The dog Emily found was microchipped, but the chip was never registered.

    Some people let their registration lapse when a company contacts you to ask for money to renew. You can go to this site:

    https://www.foundanimals.org/microchip-registry/

    for free lifetime registration. You can also upload pictures and change alternate contacts (ie: if you are traveling and someone is watching your pet). Consider that one of the alternate contacts could be someone outside of our immediate area- in case of a natural disaster or emergency where our phones or internet are not working.

    Please put checking to see if microchip info is current on your to-do list if you have a pet that is microchipped.

    Fresh, brown, gorgeous eggs from organic-fed, bear-proof* hens for sale streetside at 790 Rock Lake Rd. from 8AM - 2PM today and tomorrow (Sat and Sun).

    $5/dozen, or $.50/by the egg.

    (They're in the cooler - on the honor system. Please help yourself.)

    *Bear-proof: Electric fencing all around the chicken yard. Six years and no bear attacks. They saunter right on by.
    **P.S. The chicken featured in the photo is named Sinead (she's a bit bald on top). She wasn't too pleased I was photographing her sisters laying their daily eggs. I call the photo: "A little privacy please?"

    There have been multiple bear sightings and footprints in the Bramer and Sky Ranch areas. They are out and about.

    NOW is the time to make sure your home and property are bear proofed. Here are some ideas:

    Secure and lock areas where trash is kept- ie: don't put your trash can under a garage window.

    Take down bird feeders! I know this is an unpopular request, so if you simply can't bring yourself to do this- bring in bird feeders at night and clean up the seed underneath the feeder. Problem bears often start by visiting bird feeders.

    Do not put trash cans out the night before trash pickup.

    Consider hot-wiring chicken coops and sheds where pet food is kept.

    Clean out cars and lock them at night. If you are like me and like to keep lotion, sunscreen and lip balm in your car, keep it all in one container and bring the container in at night. Do not leave recycling or empty pet food bags in cars or outside at your home.

    Chat with new neighbors about bears. Some people who have just moved up here have never dealt with bear issues before.

    Bears are lovely to see, but we need to teach bears that coming around where people reside is not fun or rewarding. Use noise to scare bears away (from a safe distance, of course). This is not mean. It can save a bear's life.

    Preventing a problem bear starts by preventing the bear from having even one rewarding experience in the neighborhood. Please start now to help save our bears. Thank you.

    This commUNITY never ceases to amaze me! Another incredible night for the record books is logged here in our mountain oasis as Band in a Hat continues to be the most unique and magical event for all involved. The musicians and the music they played after having been randomly thrown together for 7 weeks was OUTSTANDING! Every band rocked completely and while the motto tends to be "Dare to Suck," miraculously, no one ever does! The encouragement provided to our CHILDREN was paramount as they sang and played their very best to a receptive and supportive audience, which ultimately boosts their confidence and willingness to keep creating throughout their lives! Many of the kids previously in Kids in a Hat in years past are now thriving in adult bands and in their own creative projects because of how WE nurture our youth at events like this! For every single person, this experience of working together and creating music with strangers or friends of all ages, styles, and levels is deeply enriching in so many indescribable ways FOR LIFE.

    SPECIAL THANKS to everyone involved in the show, from the musicians, sound people, parents of kids, bakers, photo-takers, hat makers, patrons, listeners, dancers, and volunteers who set up, cleaned up, and did everything in between. I am humbled by the group effort that emerges to create lasting memories for years to come. There is no other place like this on earth, a musical and artistic mecca of beautiful, talented, caring people nestled as refuge from a very complicated world...our Jimtown Bubble.

    Together, we raised over $700 for JAM last night! This money always goes back into the Town in some way so that we ALL benefit from our own benefits! THANK YOU to everyone who contributed and made it extraordinary!

    JAM looks forward to MANY more creative events like this in our 22nd year of existence and beyond! Our mission "to foster adult and youth participation in and enjoyment of The Arts" means exactly that. Bring your ideas, no matter how outlandish they may seem, and we will make it happen together! Membership is free and for everyone! Please join our monthly JAM Gatherings, which usually entail a short discussion followed by a groovy jam.

    Soon, we will begin our JAM PICK-nics in both of Jamestown's beautiful parks every Sunday from 2-5 p.m. for a chance to make the most of these precious places while gathering to PLAY (music, sports, or whatever we want) just for the fun of it! Also on the JAM plate will be our annual Summer Craft Fair and Java Jam, as well as any other creative endeavors we dream up to incite The Arts. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details and please contact jamfortheartsATgmailDOTcom for more info or to be involved.

    Peace, love, and JAM-i-ness to all!

    Tamira, while you seem to poopoo the ability of weather forecasters to come up with a useful one week forecast, I find it ironic that the forecast that you quoted on the 7th for the 15th appears to be right on ("50s and sunny"). Just saying.

    In that context, don't plan on sunshine/warmth next weekend, quite the contrary.

    Hi everyone!

    Claudia and I have put our heads together and discussed our plan to bring the "New To Us" ambulance out for a preview. We have opted to hold on this until a date a little later in May..where we will find a more predictable weather day ( and hopefully wind day...:)

    Stay tuned, as we will get it out and about and would love to have any, and all folks join in checking it out.

    More soon!

    Hi Morgan... yes, we had Elevations perform a site survey before they'd even opened for business. We're a bit lower than most of Bramer, so we're not a good candidate with their current infrastructure. Exede/Viasat has been a good interim solution, but...

    Hi Buzz
    I have Viasat with 25 MB speeds and 150 GB data. I usually use 50-60 GB/month(streaming ,video conferencing, VOIP, etc.) so never run out of data. Checked speeds late last night : clocked at 24.7 down and 2.0 up, and always vary. No complaints.

    We have a 12 Mbps 50gb/month Exede plan. Burst speeds do approach the max from time to time but rarely stay there. Because we work from home and use bandwidth-intensive services (VPN, Dropbox, etc.), we usually hit 50gb about 25 days into the month. Those last few days on the "Liberty Pass" before the data cap resets are excruciatingly slow. Looking forward to Elevations adding service over here on Bramer--we will switch immediately.

    Buzz, pick the data plan that works for you and you won’t have that issue. As for current speed the number doesn’t matter to me as it is speedy for our use: media, large downloads, multiple users, e-commuting, etc. Hope that answers your question.

    To all of the folks that said they are using Exede/Viasat for internet: How often do you run out of data and they throttle you down to slower speeds? Also, how often do you truly get the download speeds that you are paying for i.e. the 12, 25 and 50 MBPS?
    Thanks!

    Nancy and Larry, not really opposed to your dream, but would rather it not be a Starbucks franchise, appreciate your humor too.

    Sal, I have no wolves yet, and would need to get a permit,
    meanwhile if anyone finds an abandoned Lynx or Bobcat kitten,please bring it to me immediately .I guess a really young mountain lion would be ok too.
    Pete said I could have a kitten, no more dogs for a while. Our old cat is not going to live forever, she's probably 20 years old now.

    It's obvious people can post anonymously,but I am not going to speak to those people , not knowing who they are or if they even live around here.
    Apparently they have the dogs that bark all the time . Mine don't bark too much, and only escape occasionally.
    We are hoping to build a bigger better fence some day, hopefully this summer, if the cabin ever sells.

I had no way to communicate. Even though we didn't had power at the time Sal was up for the task. He set me up with an old car battery he had and showed me I could make calls through the Internet. Did not know I could do this. Even with this setup I have never had any problems. Thanks Sal.

    Could Mountain Wifi and Elevations Ethernet work together, combining their resources and expertise to achieve faster more reliable internet with fewer towers? That way everyone would benefit, in particular people who telecommute.

    Otherwise we may end up with a proliferation of towers, people overextending and then losing their livelihoods, and at the end of the story perhaps no internet at all.

    ViaSat is not currently accepting new customers here.

    I agree with Bob and Julia. Sal and Mountain High Wifi have been really good to us. When we have a problem, Sal is over here in an instant doing his best to address our issues which are rare anyway. In the K, we support our people. We will continue to support Sal & Karen and their business because they are part of our community. We will also be glad to do anything we can to help them moving forward. Additionally, it's not very cool to advertise your service on a bulletin board maintained by your competitor. Apologizing and moving forward repeating the same bad behavior doesn't make it alright either. We as a community are paying attention to things like this.

    Thank you Bob for giving voice to some of my thoughts. I’d rather support our neighbors Sal and Karen upgrading their equipment as needed than bringing in yet another ISP to our small community.

    If the new company wants to add 2 50ft! towers to our beautiful natural landscape, then wouldn’t Sal and also Nedernet need to add their own in order to remain competitive? Then we’d have potentially, six 50ft towers. What if other, faster companies joined up?

    Super fast internet is lovely, but why do we choose to live in this beautiful, rather remote, small and kind community?

    Good Morning Neighbors !

    This is Bob Tarantino, I normally don't post here but I have been reading the stream on the "Towers" and just wanted to say a few things.
    When we moved here 15 or more years ago Nedernet was our internet option. Then we heard our Bar K neighbors Scott and Erica had a service to offer and I thought lets support them any way we can. Over time Sal D. became part of their company (don't know details) and it seemed to me that we as neighbors were supporting each other in a positive and kind way. We are a small community, how many internet providers can we support? Do we need 2 more "Towers" in this small community ? Why do we need to eat each others lunch rather than help each other? How many radio waves is too many? Should we change our name from the Bar K Ranch to the Bar K industrial park? I say lets show some Bar K love to Sal, Erica and Scott. If their service needs to be upgraded IMO thats a better option.

    Jackie,
    I sincerely appreciate your desire to help animals. However, this is another of those - "good idea, but not here" situations.
    Our dogs have enough to bark at with the various scents and sounds there already are. Adding more animals to the mix will only exacerbate the situation. We all love the quiet up here and I really feel that this would be a real problem.

    Secondly, and please don't take this the wrong way: You have trouble keeping your own dogs in and under control. It doesn't bode well for control and handling of various very wild animals does it?

    Perhaps a property not in a neighborhood would be better. Good luck with your dream!

    Towers
    04-07-2018
    05:01 PM MT(US)
    Based on the information shared so far, it seems clear that before Elevations requested to build its taller towers, it should have determined a) how many Bar-K residents want a new internet provider and b) why these residents' current internet service is inadequate. Because Elevations did not conduct these preliminary analyses, no one knows what is the real demand for their service and whether it is the optimal solution. Assuring residents that it will stay within the county's 50' height restrictions, use smaller dishes, paint them green, etc., does not address these more fundamental issues.

     If you have multiple people using the internet at your house,
     I would recommend Nedernet, 12mbps high speed plan.$89.99 per month.
     very competitive with elevations, but no towers in the hood!
     
     We stream movies and videos from Netflix,and other sites,
     and the boy is constantly playing on his ps4 , a live video game where he can talk to his friends,
     while playing other kids all over the planet.requiring high speed internet service , it's streaming also.

     Another plus -sometimes we are late paying the bill and they never cut our internet service off.

    Hi everyone!

    Claudia and I are tentatively planning to bring the new ambulance over to the Wapitii picnic area in the Bar k, next Sunday, April 15th ( not tax day :)). We would love to invite anyone in the area to join us and have a chance to check it out and ask questions.

    Currently, the weather looks sunny and in the 50's for next Sunday, so... I imagine it might be snowing... :) We will check back and confirm. On my last post, I also asked you to check out your driveways for width issues, height issues etc. This would be a great time for us to converse and hear more about your property or any concerns you might have with your driveways etc. We would love to have folks from the Matoons, Overland area including all of our fabulous residents off of Overland rd/dr, Sparn, Bramer and of course within the Bar K.

    We will shoot for 1:00 on Sunday April 15th at the Wapiti picnic area, and will update as we get closer in the event that the weather shifts for some strange reason..otherwise known as Colorado!

    This will not be the last opportunity, but one of many. We hope you can join us!!

    Thanks for the discussion about our expansion plan. For those that want to view our current tower you are welcome to come by! The current tower is a 35 foot main tower with a center extension holding our VHF TV antenna, which is being removed, resulting in a total height of 43 ft. We have a 4 ft diameter dish that is necessary to reach our service provider location. Boulder County has requested that we move this tower to our property next door at 185 Overland Dr and position it in the trees to provide better screening from the road. We will also paint the tower, all access points and the dish a color that will blend in with the trees. As a point of clarification, the application for the 2 expansion towers in Bar-K have a maximum height limit of 50 ft. We are planning to construct a 40 foot main tower with a six foot center extension. We will be diligent in making sure that we comply with the maximum height limit of 50 feet as Boulder County will be very strict about this. Another engineering point about the proposed towers in Bar-K is that the Dish will be only 2 ft. in diameter which is really about 1/3 the size of our dish on our current tower. This is a much smaller foot print and much easier to conceal, especially when painted to blend in.

    Jason, I’m glad you and others have fine internet performance up here, but some of us are less than enamored with the current internet situation available, and we personally have tried all of them. And while we have no problems with the wonderful people providing the service, the service is what it is, and it is not a high-performance thing.

    I would like to be able to stream music, and now we can only do that on occasion. Netflix streaming has been really out of the question, although some people up here seem to be able to do it. Maybe our place in the neighborhood leaves us at a disadvantage, I don’t know. My husband has had trouble working from home (when he was able to do that) and would occasionally have to run down to town to use the internet service down there. I have difficulty just surfing the net in the evening, sometimes a page will load, and sometimes things just spin endlessly. It is very frustrating.

    We have found the best service so far is cellular, and while we have an ATT “hotspot”, the price for unlimited cellular data through them is quite pricey. I am all for bringing in another internet provider that would allow us to stream music and movies as we can do when we are down in town, and I believe there are others up here who would like the opportunity as well, even if they wish to remain quiet about it for fear of hurting people’s feelings.

    I've been thinking about creating a Wild Life Sanctuary here. Wolves, and Lynx mainly.
    How does everyone feel about that?
    It's probably going to take at least a year before I apply for a permit from the county.
    Just thought you all could weigh in, with your feelings, before I actually apply for a permit.
    I'm thinking it would be fun!
     We could offer wolf therapy for recovering drug addicts,and others.

    It's always been my dream to have a wildlife sanctuary in the mountains.

    The existing tower is 35 feet per their application to the county. They want to extend it to 50 feet and install two 50 ft. towers in the Bar-K.

    Re: towers, etc.
    One of our favorite things about moving here from town was the lack of any towers or poles in our neck of the Bar-K. Everything is more or less underground. I’d like to keep that way. And who in the Bar-K is unsatisfied with their internet service? We certainly are not. So I prefer the business promoting “The Tower,” expand where people want their service, while avoiding adding their tower to the tree line, in locations where their neighbors are already satisfied with current offerings.

    We drove by the existing tower yesterday. It is not too offensive in our opinion. Just a few feet above the tree tops.
    We are wondering if the current tower is indeed 50 feet.
    Perhaps painted green they would blend in better.

    I believe the permit raises the tower from 30 feet to 50 feet (46 feet says Elevations).

    We have lived in Skyranch going on 22 years and have tried different ISPs. Elevations is the best by far. We can stream tv and be on our IPads at the same time. The tower they have here is not obtrusive.

    Hi all, we need help. We just got in from CA to an empty house and realized we have no untencils to make dinner. Would anyone be kind enough to loan us a few forks and a spatula? We're on Jed Smith but I can come to you.

    Thank you all for your comments, as I know this can be a very frustrating issue for a lot of people. And thank you to Sal DeVincenzo for providing access to the message board for all of us. We are new to the SPR Permit process and will make every effort to address everyone’s concerns. You can email us directly with questions or comments if you wish or visit our website. I am working on developing a FAQ section to share some of your questions and responses. I am happy to address basic communications on the message board but do not feel it is appropriate or respectful to Sal to use the board for marketing our business.

    We did not send out a prior communication as we felt our first priority was to work with the Planning Dept of Boulder County to ensure we could meet their strict requirements and register the towers before we promised something to the community that we could not deliver. Now that we are going through this process, we want to fine tune and address as many concerns as possible.

    Sorry if the information was confusing – we offer internet services locally but will not sell our tower space to an outside commercial company such as Sprint, Verizon or Comcast as that can result in a tower that is 100 to 150 feet high and loaded with equipment that is very visible and detrimental to the beauty of our environment. In regards to the 210 households -- the County requested an analysis of how many households we could reach with this expansion, and that is the number we were able to determine.

    Even though there are several internet choices, we offer services that other providers do not, and are an FCC licensed facility, which FPD/Sheriff has the option to utilize. Additionally, we must meet the requirement to be up and operational 99.95% of the time per the requirement of the FCC licensing. Feel free to visit our website for more information or contact us directly.

    I want to provide a voice on the other side of the debate regarding the proposed
    tower. I was one of Phil and Cherie's first customers. For me, and I suspect a growing number of folks up here, a stable high speed connection is critical.
    Satellite and consumer-grade wifi are sad, dated solutions to an ever growing need for
    high speed connectivity. The amount of bandwidth required for basic internet use
    has and will continue to grow exponentially. What works well enough today most
    likely won't within a few years time. Way back when, a 14.4 dial up connection was
    plenty good enough, then 28.8, 33.6, 56k. Each were a blessing until bandwidth
    requirements made them obsolete.

    Elevations has had absolutely rock solid service. I've suffered a single outage
    in 2 years of service, due to a fiber cut down on the flats. The latency is extemely low, the bandwidth is high, and there is no data cap. The service, while more expensive, is on par with a wired connection in the city. Prior to
    Elevations my service was out several times a month. If it snowed I knew I'd have to wait for the snow to melt off a solar panel somewhere before service was restored. When it comes to emergency communications, snow on a solar panel
    disconnecting an entire community doesn't exactly inspire confidence.
    I encourage you, as Cherie mentioned, to go take a look at the existing tower.
    It's really not that terrible looking and in my opinion provides a much needed
    service to our community.

    You may be correct, Barb, but I hope the recent issue doesn't discourage anyone from sending their concerns and comments to the County about this one.

    I guess I am a bit confused about the towers and their purpose. Cherie- you are saying here in your post that these will be used for your own internet and Fire/Police, not commercial customers. In the application it states your business will address a local need for broadband service over 5mbps/sec up/down. It further states (erroneously) that neither Mountain High and Nedernet provide service over this speed and are not fast enough to support the use of a microcell booster. The application says your goal is to reach 210 households.

    It would be helpful to my understanding of the project if you could address this. Thanks in advance.

    I’m wondering the same thing... if the neighborhood already has decent internet coverage, why does the county need this? Who, besides those that would profit, need the service or want the tower?

    Bar-K residents currently have at least 4 choices of internet providers, two local and two satellite. Perhaps the providers that already cover our neighborhood could help the emergency services folks without the need to spoil our neighborhood further. Barb, I certainly hope that you are incorrect when you say is there nothing we can do to prevent it. Isn't it about time for Boulder County to listen to the residents for a change?

    Here we go again. Rather than having our neighbors tell us about upcoming things - like internet towers, we find out through postcards. Then, they post telling us how they are neighbors and care about the community... Puhleeze.... It's getting old! Of course, nothing any of us can do to prevent this, but Cherie and family, would've have been nice to hear from you before the postcards...

    Not thrilled with the prospect of our beautiful skyline being invaded. We will see that dish sticking up above the trees from our house and, at this point, don't think it is worth the promised "better and more expensive" internet. Can those towers and dishes be camouflaged? Also, I am in sympathy for those having to live right next door.

    We understand that the biggest concern in the neighborhood is seeing the towers, and no one really wants to see a tower in their view. We live in this area too and are very conscientious about maintaining a harmonious mountain environment. But we also realize that internet is more than a convenience, especially for communications for our Fire Dept. and Sheriff’s Dept. as an internet connection greatly enhances their ability to provide emergency services for our community. An important point is that our towers will not be open to any commercial customers. They will only be used for our Internet service, Lefthand Fire Dept., and Sheriff’s Dept. as we are donating co-location to these agencies. We cannot make the towers completely invisible but will do everything we can to reduce visibility. We are placing the towers nestled in with the trees and behind rock outcroppings where possible and will strive to camouflage the tower and equipment, such as painting the surfaces a color that will blend in with the forest. While the permit would grant us a tower that cannot exceed 50 feet, we plan to actually build a tower that is 46 feet tall with equipment at around the 43 foot level which is very close to the tree line, but may be visible from a higher elevation. Some of the equipment will be below tree line and not visible at all.

    We are committed to providing a community value-added service and improve safety for our community. We are interested in your thoughts and encourage you to contact us directly at ElevationsEthernet@gmail.com to discuss individual concerns. Our website at http://www.elevationsethernet.com/ is also up to date, with a tab labeled Boulder County Info with a link to the Permit paperwork (Application Materials) we submitted to the county as a public record.
