I'll admit there was a bit of a knee-jerk reaction when I got wind of the proposed park thingy. Then I had to step back and try and imagine the concerns of all involved and put myself in their shoes, so to speak.

In conventional methods of expediency of issue resolution, majority rules, if that be the case, then so be it. That method has always left me wanting in some manner, it doesn't leave or make room for compromise, that wonderful concept that is rarely implemented.

I'm both empathetic and sympathetic to the issue at hand on many levels, but can't help think beyond what's on the surface. It seems somehow the issue at hand in its conception and approach are focused with a sense of an absolute and as an end-all solution without a lot of considerations for long term possibilities. Hard to adequately contemplate and explain, there's a lot of nuances I'm missing or that aren't coming to mind at present. More than likely being clouded with the present state of turmoil we're in. Here I am stuck in the middle again.

It's difficult to act and think rationally in an apparent irrational world.

Oak, where do I sign up?
Yes, I am the most concerned about the (minor) demonization that I hear around this discussion. I am probably also guilty of it. It's so easy to get reactive and defensive.
Empathy is tough when you really don't agree with someone.

I don't think that anyone that has expressed concerns or opinion's about the park is Anti this or that. Most folks just want to know exactly whats going on. Seems these days if you're not on board with an apparent great idea, presented in such manner that would make it seem a win-win for all, automatically makes one Anti.

It seems the scope and scale may be a little over the top and more than likely would go viral on social media and Jamestown would become a destination for unknown crowds, increased traffic, the list goes on.

When matters such this go to vote, there will be winners and losers. That leads to discontent and or worse, us vs. them, divisiveness. (just look around)

I'd say, the town counsel could allow use, those in favor and want to participate would be allowed to organize, makes some trails, jumps, berms and whatever else would be needed to suffice as a recreational space in moderation, and as the need arises, then discuss further improvements.

It could be a Grass Roots, Comm-Unal effort, have a raffle, source donated materials, take ownership, build it yourself project. Kids learn a lot when they see adults working together.

As for a paved skating area, that's a tuff one and would require further consideration and or exploring alternatives within reason.

DEMOCRACY REQUIRES EMPATHY.
      Hello, Friends—
There are so many false binaries spreading like wildfire throughout our community, and so many terrible rumors.
"People don't want children playing in this town!"
"Parents of kids are being selfish and disrespect older folks' needs!"
"If you don't give our kids this bike park, you might get your house broken into."
"This town is either for children and the future, or for a retirement community."

I feel so many feelings about this project, and hear so many others suffering.
I don't think anyone who proposed the bike park wanted this to happen, or foresaw that it would, but
Democracy Requires Empathy, y'all.......How far are we willing to stretch beyond our positions?

To that end, I've joined a new group, C.R.E.W. — Committee to Restore Empathy to the World.
Anybody out there want to try for some serious solidarity and erase some of these awful divisions?

Seth, Thanks for your post. I was going to post that I saw "suspect bear tracks" in the snow yesterday, at Gillespie Gulch and again up at Blue Jay, when Lila and I were on our daily hike. They weren't as defined as the one in your photo but were bigger than a fox and smaller than a moose track and were on a random path. Figured it was about time we saw OUR BEARS ;)

If you are new to town and want information on "Bear Proofing" your home and vehicles, post here and I will be happy to assist.

The basic concepts have not changed:

1) Lock Your Doors ~ ALL OF THEM. Cars, Homes, Windows
2) Stash ALL YOUR TRASH and clean your cars. Trust me, you do not want them in your home or vehicles.
3) Report all sightings HERE ON THE QT! This helps us monitor bear activity and prevent problems from developing.
4) Let your neighbors know of BEAR activity. Not everyone reads the QT.

We have not had to "KILL" a Bear in our neighborhood in 4 YEARS!
Prior to that, 3 BEARS in 3 YEARS were euthanized.

I am so proud of all you JimBillies who are working to SAVE OUR BEARS!
THANK YOU ! THANK YOU ! THANK YOU !

Bears are awake. Must be the same critter that took my fireline pack & lunch out of the truck last Oct while I was getting my coffee... No food in my truck last night (or ever) but the bear stepped in the exact same spots in my rig- glad I didn't repair the claw marks from last time ha!

Hi Jamestown! Way back during flood recovery, we had an amazing group of gardeners from Boulder who donated their time to collect plant donations for our community when we were staring at a blank canvas. They trucked up hundreds of plants to our community and to Lyons. For many, this was during a turning point because we were actually starting to plant things instead of clearing away rubble and debris.

If you received plants during the Bringing Beauty Back to JT from the Martin Acre Garden Group and would be open to having them visit your garden this year on a sort of garden tour, could you please contact me directly? nandaloro AT gmail.com The groups' leader, Lois LaCroix is a lovely person and just looking for a way to connect to the beauty they helped to create.

And if there is anything in the works for a JT Garden tour, that would be a great time to have them visit.
Thank you!
Nina

Hello Jamestown. I've got a couple different people anxiously looking for a home in the Jamestown area. The Market is red-hot so if you're considering a move I'd love to get a heads-up and maybe we can put together a less stressful transaction. It's no surprise that people are so anxious to move to this special place! David Mans, Gold Country Realty. 720-530-0097

If'n any of Y'all got a hankerin' for sum Bar-B-Que, check this guy's food truck out. Toady was his first ay back in business since the damn-demeic started, when he had to shut his brick and mortar location down. His truck will be on the north east corner of Pearl and Folsom (the old Barnsley Tire location across from Mike's Camera) next to Hoshi Motors on Mon/Wed/Fri, 11:00 a.m to 2:00 p.m.

https://bigdaddystxbbq.com

hanker (v.)

Probably from Flemish hankeren, related to Dutch hunkeren "to hanker, to long for," which is perhaps an intensive or frequentative of Middle Dutch hangen "to hang" (see hang (v.)). If so, the notion is of "lingering about" with longing or craving. Compare English hang (v.) in hang on (someone's) every word.

If anyone has a refrigerator in good working order that they no longer need, we are looking for another for the pantry. With warmer weather

Thanks in advance for all your help!
And speaking of cold, we may need to go back to circling the cars this coming Saturday. Forecast is for cold and maybe snowy weather. I will post on
Friday with any details.

Here I am chiming in, Laura. I can reference this babe from the time she was a hippie chick with a guitar about 100 years ago when she first came to Jamestown. I’ve loved her ever cents and she has helped me many times. She was the hardest worker ,sorter, and knows how to finesse a job. She has the tIruck and the whole things wherever you want. I tried to adopt her but just didn’t work out yet!

Thanks Peter for clarifying what is being proposed for the park. I found it odd to be asked to sign up to comment publicly on ideas yet to be defined.

One comment I would have is that if you think the park is underutilized you should spend some time on our deck. I don’t think the town is aware of how much it gets used. I have lived across form this beautiful space for 35 years. Before the flood the use of the park was basically mostly town folks. The park and creek were barely visible from the road. Now, post flood, it is easy to see and every day attracts a steady stream of walkers, runners, fishermen, very serious tennis players, youth groups, treasure hunters and prospectors. Yes, prospectors panning for gold in the creek. Quite a large portion of this use is not by locals. I have had to go and ask people with metal detectors to stop digging holes in the middle of the trail by the creek. I was asked by a guy in town while on a walk the other day where the Jamestown Dog Park was that he had heard about.

The Town already has 3 buildings and two parks that due to limited resources receive little to no maintenance. Thanks to many volunteers things get taken care of. My fear is that expansion of the park and adding attractions will only make this situation worse due to increased use.

 Many thanks to the “poop fairy” who spent hours cleaning up the park for the kids prior to the Egg Hunt last weekend.

I was able to find a used copy today at the Boulder Bookstore.

I believe Karla is referring to the squirrel as her "Lil Roommate" not the foxes.

For those that are unable to view Karla's post, there's an image of a squirrel that has gnawed it's way into what appears to be the side of Karla's house, cute, but problematic.

Karla, google it. When does a fox and her kits leave the den for good. Or something like that. I think you’ll find, if your willing to be a little patient,
,they leave on their own. It’’s a built in instinct of when to stay and when to go to give the kits a good start.

Lots of questions from the community about the proposals for giving Elysian Park an upgrade. I will answer to the best of my knowledge what I know. In February Julie CK talked with the town board about ideas for improving the park to make it more kid friendly and a better family/community gathering spot. Together Julie and I came up with several ideas, principally a small bike park/skate park/bmx track at the far east end of the park, upgraded playground equipment, ball field or grass for picnics and frisbee, exercise stations along the dog walking trail, and improved facilities: bathroom, gear shed, trash... As is the park is a large but very underutilized space. These are all suggestions. The bulk of our research focused on the feasibility of building and maintaining a bike park . We presented our initial findings at the March board meeting, and discussed this more in depth at the April board meeting last week, focusing largely on gathering more information from the community about if and how to move forward. Does the community at large like the idea of improving the park, and how do we go about finding that out? What concerns does the community have and how do we address those? The agenda of this coming Monday’s meeting will be a fifteen minute presentation by Julie and myself to share what we have been researching, what we have found, address potential concerns, and then open up to a Q+A with anyone who signs up for a three minute spot. This will be a precursor to the town board crafting a survey which will be prepared and ready to go out in early May. The three week interim will hopefully be enough time for residents to process the contents of Monday’s meeting, educate themselves further if they wish, talk to their neighbors about it, decide the pros and cons of upgrading the park for themselves, and basically be informed before they fill out the survey. Julie and I look forward to both seeing you at the meeting and talking with you in person. As we move forward we hope to grow this into a community project that we can work together to build, and then enjoy for many years to come.

My thoughts on the proposed park projects:
(And I’m not sure I know what all of them are.)

To me, one of the most beloved aspects of Jamestown is that it’s multi-generational.
I think any proposed projects on publicly used land should reflect that.
First, direct our resources, human and monetary, to maintenance. Then to upgrades. Improve on what we have. Refurbished the old sledding hill. Resurface the tennis courts. Spruce up the loo. Etc.
Then, if there are resources left, put in some new stuff.
I want adult swings with a plank seat, not those stupid strap seats that squeeze your butt and hips.
But safety first, how about an emergency call box?
I think a small skate park with a few half pipes and ramps would make a nice addition to the park. We haven’t got much for middle and high schoolers. (This is where the emergency call box goes. Haha!)

I also feel the park should remain non-motorized and activities should be kept together between the tennis courts and the play ground. Plenty of room there.
 
Parks also need spaces of quite nature.
For many miles around the trail looping the lower tailings pond is the only easy sloping walk in nature that we have. As an oldster with plantar fasciitis I’ve used this loop for rehab. This is my easy access handicap trail.
Do not develop the lower tailings pond loop.

To sum my wishes up:
Maintenance first.
New stuff next.
No motors.
Location is everything.

(And not one word about the benefits of CPAP 😉)

Old Carla why do the foxes have to move they were living there long before you came? They are well socialized an alert to any cars going bye and a real survivor. Last year we took special rides over there to see her. Maybe you could talk to the park committee and they would build her a fox hole as part of their grant plan?:-)

Would the proposed upgrades make Jamestown a "destination"?
If so, would the increased traffic from auslanders be a bane or a boon?
The proposed Reggae Festival a couple years ago was rejected in part
because of possible increased traffic and park degradation by folks who don't care about JT,
not only for the event, but future events.
It was a great idea, everyone loves Rudy and Donovan Maaka, just like the author(s) of the current proposal,
who I think I know and love.
Truly - your energy and devotion to improving the town is admirable.
The two proposals aren't the same, but there's some similarity.
Absent particulars of the proposal being easily available, it's hard to form an opinion.
Not that it's ever stopped any true Jimtowner.

Probably the same mama who was in the culvert above you, with her 3 pups last year,

MOUNTAIN FOOD RESCUE!
Important information on getting to the FOOD!
We are going to go back to our original traffic plan before the cold weather caused us to ask you to circle your wagons (cars) around the slash pile.
Tomorrow, Saturday April 10, we want you to drive to the parking area by the tennis court, park your car and then get out of your car and form a line by
the garage doors. We will have someone directing traffic to remind you of what we are doing. Thank you again to our resident volunteers!
Please bring your own bag(s) or boxes for your groceries.
Masks are still required.
Social distancing is still important, even outside.
We can allow more than 3 people in the Pantry as long as we maintain a 6 foot social distance. Try to do your socializing outside in line so the line inside
can move more quickly.
Now for the FOOD! We have lots of eggs and sour cream! We have milk, yogurt, ricotta cheese, and a bunch of gourmet cheeses, plenty of different kinds of meat, lots of produce, potatoes, apples, carrots, onions, interesting chips and snacks, King Arthur flour, and plenty of canned goods and dry goods, and of course a boatload of excellent breads and pastries .
See you tomorrow from 11- 12:00 or beyond if we still have people needing food!
Remember this is not need based but the desire to not throw away good food, do your duty and rescue some food tomorrow!

Hey!
Group of community members who are proposing changes to Elysian Park!
I’ve been (we’ve all been) invited to give opinions and advice on your proposals.
And you know there’s nothing I enjoy more than giving advice. 😄
Would you please post a list your proposals and how they would be funded.
I’d at least like my opinions and advice to be on topic.
Otherwise I might devolve into a three minute lecture on benefits of CPAP.

This may not be reasonable, or at least, extremely difficult, but before the flood there were two good trails originating in Jamestown. One started at the end of Ward St. and the other at the sharp bend in Gillespie Spur. They are both now destroyed. It would be really nice to reestablish them.

Sam, since you put it that way, maybe the idea does deserve more consideration, some modest infrastructure additions could prove beneficial in the long term.
I remember when you were younger, such a facility might have kept you out of trouble and off the streets :O)

You turned out OK :O)

Just yanking your chain :O)

As someone who has spent years in Jamestown and as a friend to many Jt'ers I would like to voice my support for the potential upgrades to Elysian Park and would highly encourage others to do so as well.
Widening the range of outdoor recreational facilities immediately accessible to Jamestowners will help to promote healthy living and also contribute to the positive mindset within the community.

Stay safe and think positive ya'll.

Community Meeting on Monday: Park Project Proposal

Dear Community, 

During the Jamestown Board Meeting on Monday we discussed how best to collect feedback from the community on the proposal by a group of community members for changes to Elysian Park. We agreed that the next step is to hear feedback on the proposal from our community. 

We invite you to a Community Meeting on Monday, April 12 at 6:00pm. The purpose of this meeting is for the group of community members who are proposing changes to Elysian Park to have an opportunity to share their ideas with the community and for the community to have an opportunity to share their public comment on the proposal.

You must sign up to make a public comment during this meeting. Each person will have 3 minutes to speak. You may sign up one of two ways:

1. Submit your first and last name using this form (https://forms.gle/gzhWZkUWgDZ3n9rH9), or 
2. Send an email to the Town Clerk with your first and last name (townclerk@jamestownco.org)

This will be a virtual Community Meeting on Zoom. Kristi will send out a link to the Zoom meeting by Friday. 

Here is the agenda:
* 6:00 pm  Mayor will open the Community Meeting
* Elysian Park Project Proposal Presentation (15 min)
* Community Comments (3 min each - you MUST sign up for public comment)
* Elysian Park Project Closing (5 min)
* 8:00 pm  Mayor will close the Community Meeting 

We look forward to seeing you at this Community Meeting on Monday at 6pm.

Dear Community,

Updated Vaccination Information
April 7, 2021

1. Effective April 2, all persons aged 16+ may be vaccinated (16 and 17 year olds have access to the Pfizer vaccine only).

          Vaccines for children 12-16 will be available late summer.
          Vaccines for children under 12 will be available in 2022.

2. Please be sure to get that second shot. On order for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to work as tested and approved you must get that second shot within the prescribed window.

3. Please continue to wear a mask and social distance for a little while longer. A lot more vaccine is on the way. Currently there is a lot of demand for vaccine and initially it may be difficult to get appointments. Be persistent. Most everyone who wants the vaccines will be vaccinated by early May.

The link below will take you to a comprehensive list of clinics, pharmacies and other providers for the purpose of registering and making appointments for your shot(s). It also includes links to three state run drive through vaccination sites. These are the Dicks Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, the Ranch in Loveland and Ball Arena in Denver.

Check the QT for temporary and mobile sites.

You and literally millions of Colorado residents are looking for appointments, but the supply of vaccines is improving quickly. Boulder County providers administered nearly 30,000 doses last week. Be persistent.

If you have problems with a site or need help please contact Ken Lenarcic or Barbara Byrnes-Lenarcic at 303 938-1486.

This list of providers can be found here: http://jamestownco.org/covid-19/vaccination-information/


Thank you,

And stay safe.

Or if you're referring to the adult-child in me that longs to while away in the woods, remembering when I came home filthy dirty, smelling of a goat as Mom used to say as she directed me to "wash those hands" and hungry for dinner, Mom knew I had been playing in the woods.

If I came home relatively clean and sulking, wanting a new skate board because Little Johnny had one, when the one I had was perfectly good, she knew I had been at the play ground :O)

Just thinking about Elysian Park 2.0.

As a child I lived in both smaller towns and larger cities, my fondest memories now of playing were from the smaller towns and playing in the woods.

A place now that I remember my imagination and natural curiosity kept me and my friends engaged, entertained until the sun went down.

When we moved to the bigger cities, the artificial playgrounds were neat-o at first, or until the novelty wore off, the steel sliding board would give you second degree burns on a hot day, the injuries became more frequent and there was always the one jack-ass bully kid that ruined the whole playground experience for one or more of us.

There were always a clique of kids from one side of the neighborhood that didn't get along with the others for one reason or another, I think now it was because they heard their parents expressing opinions about 'Those People' or 'That Street', you know how that goes :O)

We have an abundance of food! Lots of eggs, organic milk, Kashi cereal, sliced turkey breast, King Arthur flour, Avocado oil, butternut squash, potatoes, apples, onions, oranges, beautiful loaves of sourdough bread, other breads, pastries, and some ice cream, and enough sour cream to supply the entire town!
Please come tomorrow and rescue some of this amazing food!
Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

Join me Next week for a Zoom Event on Compassion Fatigue.
Most commonly found in healthcare workers, but we have all been a caregiver at some point it seems now.
Compassion fatigue is a condition characterized by emotional and physical exhaustion leading to a diminished ability to empathize or feel compassion for others, often described as the negative cost of caring. It is sometimes referred to as secondary traumatic stress (STS). According to the Professional Quality of Life Scale, burnout and STS are two interwoven elements of compassion fatigue.


Join me and lets chat! A licensed therapist will be on the call to help in processing this really rough year. Two sessions to make sure you have a chance to join

Dear Community, 
I know many people have heard about the project at Elysian Park that was proposed by a group of community members at the last Town Board meeting. This project was presented to the Town Board for the first time last month and requires community input and much more discussion before any project would be approved. To that end, the Board asked the community members proposing this project to work with LUHAC to develop a list of survey questions that would then be sent to the residents of Jamestown for their input and feedback on the proposed project. The Board will be reviewing the survey questions during Monday's meeting and we will then distribute the survey to the community.

As always, please feel free to reach out to me or any of the Board members or the Town Clerk if you have any questions. Please also feel free to join us on Monday for the Town Board Meeting (the first Monday of the month).

Sincerely,
Tara

Collin had his surgery on Monday, it was challenging as expected. They were able to accomplish all that they had hoped without any new complications or surprises. Collin is now recovering and we are hopeful that he will get to return home this weekend.

While recovery will take a while and won’t be easy, Collin is a Chron’s warrior and is looking forward to living his life free from pain and enjoying his brand new gut.

We love this town so much, thank you again for all your love and support🤍💪🏽

BOULDER, Colo. -- Fire managers were able to complete 1820 piles in the Forsythe Project last week. Units 39, 40, and 50 are now finished. We also completed most of unit 45, but are waiting for some snow to melt before completing it. With the current snow pack and more snow projected to fall this weekend and into next week there should be some good opportunities to continue burning.

The Following units will be targeted in the coming week.
• James Creek RFB Units 6, 8: 5,000 piles remaining General location: Half mile south of Jamestown or quarter mile East of Bar K Ranch
• James Creek Unit M1701: 8,000piles General Location: East of Hwy 72, near Peaceful Valley.

https://www.flatironsrx.com
After much time spent and many dead ends, I finally found this pharmacy in Longmont that has a simple online reservation system and seemed to have plenty of drive-up appointments available.
Apparently they're doing it like curbside delivery where you park in a designated space and text them when you arrive.
You can also choose Pfizer or Moderna.
Good luck and good health! ;)

W Mesa drivers: try not to drive in the troughs; they're just going to get deeper, the melting runoff will groove them into more difficult ruts, and you may damage the bottom of low clearance vehicles.

More IMPORTANT INFORMATION concerning the FOOD PANTRY!
Please read the post below for hours and where to park tomorrow.
We have an ENORMOUS amount of food for tomorrow's Food Rescue !

We have 25 whole TURKEYS!
To make it easier for everyone we will have a vehicle in the WEST parking lot that will be giving out the turkeys. Patty will be there in her white jeep to hand them out. (We didn't think you would want to carry a turkey across the park!)

Meanwhile back at the pantry we have roast chickens, hamburger, some chicken, milk, eggs, cheese (including a giant 1/4 wheel of gorgonzola), a huge amount of packaged greens and produce, plus carrots, onions, potatoes, apples, oranges, prepared foods, bread and pastries!
We are really stocked up!

MOUNTAIN FOOD RESCUE!
IMPORTANT information about Tomorrow's (Saturday March 27th) food pantry.
Unfortunately Cemetery Road is still a complete mess and the parking lot by the Tennis courts is a muddy pit.
We are supposed to get more snow and/or rain today so I don't think conditions will be improving.
HERE IS THE PLAN:
Park in the West lot of Elysian park and walk to the pantry. (if you walk on the perimeter path it's less muddy than walking thru the middle)
Masks are required.
Please remember to keep socially distant.
Bring your own bags, boxes, or packs to carry your food.
Hours: back to normal hours this week. Doors open at 11:00 until 12:00 (or until there are no more people)

Everyone is welcome!
Maybe check in with your neighbors and offer to make the trek for them if they are not able to walk over themselves.
Happy Spring and Mud season!

RIP Larry McMurtry. Riding off into the sunset is one of my very favorite authors of the Olde West. I still think his stories of Call and McCray are the best made-for-tv Westerns ever. I also highly enjoy his books about growing up in west Texas and becoming a bookman and author. Anyways, I'm gonna miss him.

Attention landowners whose homes directly border USFS land and have wanted to expand their defensible space, but couldn't. This program is for you.


U.S. Forest Service

Boulder Ranger District
Boulder, Colo.

Find this news online: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/arp/news-events/?cid=FSEPRD897959

Get wildfire ready by creating defensible space around your home
Application period opens April 1 for Boulder Ranger District
BOULDER, Colo. – Landowners across Boulder and Gilpin counties are preparing their properties to be more resilient to wildfire by creating areas of defensible around their homes. To support this effort, the U.S. Forest Service’s Boulder Ranger District has completed two environmental analyses (Boulder Defensible Space Project and Forsythe II Project) that allow private landowners in Boulder and northern Gilpin counties to reduce hazardous fuels on National Forest lands around their homes.
This opportunity will complement the mitigation work already being completed by private property owners in cooperation with the Colorado State Forest Service and county wildfire preparedness programs to create areas of defensible space around primary structures on private lands.
Each year, applications will be accepted April 1 through April 30. Upon receipt of the application, resource specialists will evaluate design criteria for your specific location. Defensible space permits will be issued by the Boulder Ranger District before July 1, and work may begin after receipt of the permit.
The Boulder Ranger District will provide homeowners permits based on the mitigation area and the volume of trees to be cut (either a free-use permit or personal use paid permit). On National Forest land, hazardous fuels shall only be cut by hand with manual equipment (e.g. chainsaws, handsaws, loppers). Landowners will be responsible for removing the debris created from the defensible space treatments from National Forest land to their private land for disposal utilizing non-mechanized equipment (e.g. carts, wheel barrels, etc.); off-road vehicles and other motorized equipment shall not be used. Cut material shall not be left on National Forest property.
For more information about this project and to learn how to apply, go to Boulder Ranger District Defensible Space Permits.

i took a rare trip off the mountain today, & heading home, north on Foothills, all the cars ahead of me were braking. I drove slowly into this river of red lights, and just across the divider, police cars were lined up, flashing. Like every cop in all of Colorado —state troopers, sheriffs, city cops, idling, lights strobing, silently. And, just then on NPR it said the body of the slain officer was expected to be moving soon down FoothillsPkwy. Waiting. A vigil. A crane parked there had the police flag and an American flag.
After the cop cars was a fleet of every ambulance from everywhere, a sea of ambulances, and then so many fire trucks. And every vehicle had red and white lights blaring, bursting, sobbing. Sobbing lights, vivid against the low, grey sky, and people. People everywhere, standing on every overpass, lining both sides of the road. They had children and dogs and banners and flags and every one of us crying. From Colorado Blvd to Valmont they waited in their grieving, their honoring. And all the drivers too, the accidental witnesses. ( Witness means martyr i learned once.)
 It was the saddest thing i can remember in a long time.

One more thing - At least in my case, there was not a choice of what vaccine I would get. The place where I got mine (SCL HealthLutheran Hospital) had been giving Moderna shots earlier in the day of my first shot, then they told us they'd switched over and were now using Pfizer. The 2nd shot, of course, had to be Pfizer and I had to drive back to Wheat Ridge for that. I don't know if there is a way to find out which vaccine you will get, or if it was just the program I was a part of.

Hollis, as a holistic veterinarian I have seen some pretty bad long-term side effects from vaccines, so I am a vaccine skeptic. I debated with myself for a long time before making a decision. I think the pre-release science is pretty good, but nobody has a clue about long-term (>6 months) effects. Aye, that's the rub!

After much research and inner conflict, and because I am high-risk, I decided to get the vaccine. (I got the Moderna, 2nd shot in 2 weeks). My reasoning is that, along with a (mostly) healthy lifestyle plus this protocol to prevent adverse effects (https://littlebigcat.com/preventing-vaccine-adverse-effects, designed for people), my risk of problems from the vaccine are low. One week after the first shot I did have an itchy, red nodule at the vaccine site, but it resolved quickly with flower essences. I have a friend who felt awful for a day after 2nd shot, but that is common, and actually is a good sign that your immune system is responding properly.

I would have preferred the Johnson & Johnson, as it uses well-established technology that I understand and have used in animals for 20 years. But when you go to the clinics, you get what you get. When I got there, only Moderna was available. Because I was prepared per the protocol, I went ahead and got it.

I think that staying unvaccinated is going to pose social problems in the future. I suspect that proof of vaccination may start to be required for things like air travel, sports and music events, etc. I don't particularly trust the government, but rather than have life become a major pain in the ass everywhere I go, I figured the low risk with the vaccine was worth it.

I have a flower essence remedy called "Vaccine Detox" (which is what I used to resolve the itchy bump) I have a few bottles, if anyone wants one let me know. At the risk of bots I will post my email, but carefully jhofve AT ((yahoo)) DOT com.

Just keep your mask on, Hollis, wash your hands and keep your social distance, and hope that all the people around you who are getting vaccinated will protect you from the virus. I understand your hesitancy - we don't have long-term studies yet, and the vaccines are under emergency authorization. There doesn't seem to be an alternative solution to get the country back on its feet and businesses back open, so it's a risk I've been willing to take. If you're right, down the road, and we all suffer horrible consequences from the shots, you can say "I told you so."

Randal, I see a lot of folks yes, at a distance...

I take all precautionary measures and then some...

So, I'm basing my assumptions on distancing, isolations ect. It works for me and folks I associate with.

There are folks that I know that are in the know that have declined the vaccinations for now until more long term data is gathered.

I'm not trying to discourage, just want everyone to do their homework.

Hopefully I'm wrong.

I agree with you Hollis on wanting data and not anecdote. The two metrics that are important to most users are efficacy and safety profile. The efficacy of the top two mRNA vaccines was established in large sample groups before they became widely available. The safety profile appears to be there, and we know what the risks are of not vaccinating. At this point there are almost 900,000 Coloradoans fully vaccinated and something like 120 million doses administered of the various vaccines that are out there in the U.S., and the safety profile from the sample groups seems to be holding up across the larger population. People do have a range of reaction to vaccine and medication of all sorts, but aside from some mild flu symptoms these have been statistically really benign. There may be other ways to get two beers from RandyO without getting punched in the arm but in my judgement this is the best.

Has anyone else considered holding off from getting the 'Vaccine' for now, until more data is gathered and processed ?

I'm not an anti-vaxxer by any means, but I like to mix in a healthy dose skepticism, mostly based on the level of incompetence on so many levels of so many experts with the proverbial gun to their heads to approve a vaccine to keep the wheels of economy turning, understandable, given the level of complexity of our society.

These vaccines were all approved on an emergency use authorization with relatively limited efficacy studies, and from what I've read, efficacy might not be the key in determining which vaccine is appropriate or most effective for individuals.

I've got dozens of thoughts, all I can say is to do your homework, make your decisions based on the real science and try and not let your emotions take control.

I know, this is trying for all and everyones situations are different.

It will likely say that all available appointments are taken. You'll need to keep trying until one frees up, which I had happen several times today. Then you have to be quick to enter your information. But it worked!

A deeper beauty exists,
Beneath the world we see,
And the world we cannot,
Where the thin veil,
Between life and death,
Holds no power,
And serves only to provide
A framework tapestry.
There we go,
and stay only long enough to find our bearings.
Until we become,
not we,
But one with the world behind the veil.

MOUNTAIN FOOD RESCUE!
Some additional information and suggestions: You might want to bring a backpack or a toboggan with you to the the parking lot to help bring your groceries back to the parking lot. Absolutely no one should plan on driving to the pantry, it is a one way, 4 wheel drive, muddy snowy, slushy mess! And the parking lot by the tennis courts is even worse! Randy O. left a black toboggan next to the fence in the Elysian parking lot if people want to use it to transport groceries, just bring it back when you are done.
REMEMBER! The hours are different tomorrow! Recycle from 10 - noon and after that you may park in the parking lot and walk to the food pantry. Food pantry will open at 12:30!
GOOD news! We have lots of food tomorrow! enough eggs for everyone, hamburger, roast chicken, turkey breast deli meat, sausage, lots of cheeses, big containers of strawberry yogurt, packaged salad greens, prepared foods, potatoes, onions, carrots, apples, oranges, bread and pastries!
We know you are going to have to work for it this week but think of it as an adventure! Maybe consider helping out a neighbor who may not be able to do the hike across the park!
Thanks for your cooperation in these unusual circumstances!
Tomorrow is the first day of Spring!!!!

I first met Dixon and Jeanne during the flood recovery. Their extraordinary kindness was an encouragement to me on many occasions. I can remember several times when Dixon (or Jeanne!) called down just to tell those of us working in the Town Hall to keep up the good work. Some of those phone calls aligned with some of our tougher days - and they never failed to bring a tear (not that making me cry was ever difficult in those raw days!). Those calls were just so...out-of-the-blue, randomly awesome. At some point, I stumbled on some town documents in the archives from many years prior and learned more about what an incredible influence Dixon had on the Jamestown community. His heart was in it and it showed. What an incredible person - what an example - what a legacy. All of my respect to the King family.

I'd like to thank Cowboy for coming back and plowing Dixon & Jeanne's driveway twice on Sunday; so we could send Dixon on his next journey.
Thanks also to Julie, Beth, Michael, Jaye, and Rudiger.

Thank you, Craig Brown! You saved me today. I am so grateful!!!
Yes, Hollis, I agree.
We're all about supporting a plow service for the town or even just Mesa Street.
Let's explore our options. Let's get creative! How about we have fundraiser to buy a town plow vehicle that many of us are trained to drive and maintain? Or, maybe we just need a plow for the front of a vehicle? What about using a fire truck? What about a front loader? That would probably come in handy. We need a truck that can power through. We can go in on a vehicle or a service together. Are there grants available for something like this? What does our town leadership think?
Let's keep this conversation going.

I like the idea with a Donation Bucket at the Town Hall. Then they all can get together at the end of the snow season and split it up - like late July or so...??

I'm trying to figure out how to support our plower's, pay, donate whomever is plowing. I used to supply Kenny and Craig with gasoline.

Is this something we could contribute to, say in the form of a Go Fund Me page, PayPal, Donation Bucket at the Town Hall ?

I realize some may not want to have to be committed to plowing, it's tuff, time consuming and expensive to maintain and operate a plow.

It is something that needs to be addressed for emergency vehicle access as well.

Hi Neighbors,

We're stuck up here on Pine Street. Normally Seth plows us out but it sounds like he's run into a some engine problems. Would love to pay someone to give this road a scrape too! It would be so appreciated! Thanks!!

Just heard from Seth that he can't plow our driveway on west Mesa as he had planned since his truck blew a hydraulic line tonight. Is there a possibility of someone else in town we can hire to help us? Most appreciative!
