Happy Earth Day Weekend!

Opportunities available for Jimtowners to keep the land and water we value so much free from trash and contaminants. On Saturday, April 20th a small group of volunteers will meet at 9:30 am at Ward and Main to pick up trash along the Little Jim corridor from Balarat Hill down to James Creek. If you are interested in helping please RSVP me at colleen@jimtown.org. Creek-side residents can help out by cleaning up any trash on their property that is in the creek or along the banks. Also help out by preventing anything from your property to end up in the creek during spring run-off that is coming soon. Please be mindful when you drive west of town on Saturday morning of the eco-volunteers picking up trash along the roadway. Thank you for your help!

Many years ago when the Town Board researched republishing the Mountain Memories book, the photo "plates" were said to be lost. Might be something about that in the old Town Board minutes somewhere between 1982-1992.

Regarding republishing "Mountain Memories, A History of Jimtown, Colorado", which was compiled and written by Jann Gurnsey, Barbara Heaton (deceased) and Jean King (in 1976), here's yesterday's note from Jann Gurnsey:

"I don’t have a problem with republishing the book if possible. I just don’t want something with my name on it, changed and published. I’d like to see it published again, as is, and then someone writing the history from there on in a book with their name. They could address corrections and additions in their book."

With Jeanne and now Jann's blessing, this booklet can now be reproduced. I will check costs and go from there. It might sell at July 4th or another event, if people are interested. Perhaps the Board would consider sponsoring the reprinting. First off, I'll check the cost to reprint. Thanks Jeanne and Jann!

Hi
I am hoping to find a young person to help me with some light yard work. Digging holes for flowers, raking, weeding etc. I'm a friendly employer and willing to be as accomodating as possible. We are long time residents of Lefthand Canyon living about 3 miles from Jamestown. Let me know when you might be available and how much you charge.

Hi all, here's a possible work around for your anti-spammer features for reverse 911 (evacuation). It may require set up in bocoalerts911.com:

Chris,

 

I did some more digging on this question. It looks like it might be possible to put in a “1” (or whatever the required prompt is) in the extension field and this might allow you to get past any robocaller/antispammer filters but it would require the end user to do the work on their end in their account. Is that clear?

 seed money for re publication jut as written. Never happened. Jann ha rights now. Babpis deceased. i resign with love for anyone still interested in this magical spot!Wendy et al..i wrote grant for bi centennial $ for mayor, Florence Walker because i was degreed in American History. Ton recieved $ for registration of cemetarpy, the book and parade. Florence had a start on map and we tried, with microfiche etc. to finish mapping by tie bbook was completed. The next excavation told us that there was another layer to the story, so to speak, a fairly usual situation in mountain burial sites. We did not address map further and submitted it for book.

The cover of Mountain Memotes three volunteers. It should include their husbands and half of town and county. Lonmont library put up ithme for two years😃 i wrote only historically as I was newby in town. Poos were BORROWED AND RETURNED TO OWNERS after Terry Phillips printed. we spent all grant. copywrited in name of Jann Gurnsey.

Thank you Jeanne for trying to rescue stuff.
On another subject, if another edition of “Jamestown Memories” (that you and a team compiled) could be republished, i think it would be enjoyed by all. That small journal of life around JT chronicling some times in the last century is one of a kind. I dk where the money would come from to print more. I have my one copy that is getting very dog-ear’d from people paging through it over the years. Thank you!

@Jeanne - cameras. You might check eBay to get some idea what things might optimistically be worth. I sold maybe a dozen or so to a reseller for ~$250 IIRC. There are shows around - one coming up in two weeks in Pasadena. (https://www.bargaincamerashows.com/) If you look at the vendor list you'll see what's on offer. Sounds like Steve E. has a handle on local events that might be useful. Good Luck!

JAM THANKS YOU ALL for another uniquely epic Band in a Hat!!! The bands, songs (especially the originals and those about Jimtown!), and presentation were incredible and the perseverance, sticking it out in spite of any challenges, and hard work of every single person involved was much appreciated by everyone who attended!

SPECIAL THANKS to all who came and contributed as we raised over $1,300, which is the most we ever made at a BIAH event! These funds benefit Jamestown Area Artists & Musicians and will be put right back into the Town in many ways by creating future events, updating our equipment, and generally supporting The Arts.

EXTRA SPECIAL THANKS to ALL volunteers who helped with whatever was needed, brought baked goods, collected donations, counted hat votes, filmed and took photos, AND to the amazing clean-up crew who stayed to the bitter end helping to return our Town Hall to a pristine condition, which will allow us to continue holding events there!

'Til next year then! Stay tuned for Band in a Hat #13 in 2020!!!

Jeanne, I collected old cameras for many years and it's through that I am aware of a "camera swap" that usually occurs in May in Lakewood. Your friend could bring what she has to it and collectors will probably decend on her like locus to buy her stuff. If she's interested in doing that have her call me and I can advise her.

Hi all-
this was the response to a question about reverse 911 and anti-spam settings on landlines:

Everbridge does not have functionality to get around Robo caller or anti-spam software. It is simply waiting for voice recognition before it starts delivering its message. If it was faced with a "press 1" prompt it would just try to deliver it's voice message but never make it to the recipient.

Apparently strange and awful things are happening in Jamestown now. It is so scary that I am afraid to return this summer though Sylvia thinks we are stable enough to fight it. I'm speaking about wooks and, possibly, mutated ticks. It seems that things like stealing leftover meat spaghetti and a bottle of Ranch dressing are reported. These reports are made to cover up the real problem. WOOKS AND MUTATED TICKS ARE TAKING OVER THE MINDS OF JAMESTOWN RESIDENTS! Anyone not from Jamestown, or from Jamestown but not wook-infected, will realize this by just reading the QuickTopic of the last few days. I intend to research the situation immediately and see if there is a known cure.
Good luck,
Jerry

Aloha JIMTOWNERS, I now have a Tick in my right EYE AND I THINK I WILL LEAVE IN JAMESTOWN WHEN I LEAVE AFTER MY VISIT IN MAY. I had to get in on this new TSUNAMI and remember to especially watch out for the Lyme colored BEARS they definitely are more aggressive than your everyday Brown or Black ones and of course all three are interchangeable. Just a thought from and old and getting older Jimtowners.

Hey JimBillies ~ It's Bear and Tick season again! Thank You everyone for your posts. It helps us SOBs to know what's shaking out there in the woods. Just a reminder that Locked Cars Save Bears Lives (and your car's interior). Stash your Trash responsibly.

Please post all sightings and/or observations (on the Bear Tracker above and here on the QT) as it adds to the data and information we use to promote a "Healthy Co-Existence". Let's not forget ~ The Bears were here first. Let us share our beautiful mountains with all God's Creatures.

Wonder what it might be like to be a bear emerging from hibernation? Watch the youtube i posted of a Minnesota bear "waking up".

Jamestown Easter Egg Hunt

When: Saturday April 20, 2019 11am

Where: Elysian Park

Please have a family member or friend show up between 10-10:30am to hide eggs and treats. Recommended are 15-20 items for each child participating. Friends and family from out of town are welcome- please be sure to hide extra treats for them.

Toys and treats for kids 3 years and under can be wrapped in foil or bright colors to make them easier to find. Small toys and stuffies are great so that the little kids don't end up with too much sugar. The littles will hunt in the park playground area.

The hunt is for kids UNDER 12, but middle school and high school kids are welcome! We would love their help hiding eggs and assisting the 4-6 year olds hunt in the big park area.

The hunt will start promptly at 11. Please please please be there on time as it's tough to keep eager hunters from blazing out.

Don’t forget to dress for the weather. Hope to see you there!

O'B, Thanks for the 'Special Event' reminder! :O)

I made it to the grocery store this morning before the sun was up as not to interfere with cycling event. Gracious knows, I wouldn't want to impede or impose on such a Special Event. I realize how important these timed events are to the Professional Cycling Comm-Unity and all around importance of said activity to the overall advancement of humanity.

Given the helpful suggestion of choosing an 'Alternative Route' would leave me choosing to do my grocery shopping either in Estes Park, Lyons or Nederland, to which none would prove to be a viable option given the time, distance and sheer inconvenience for me.

But in trying to do my part in 'Sharing The Road', weighing it up, opted for an earlier than usual departure, rushed through the store and made it home successfully without hindrance, imposition or conflict. A win win for all parties involved.

Like the say, if you can't beat'em, figuratively speaking of course, avoid'em, literally speaking.

Best wishes to all the participants and break a leg, I believe is the correct expression for wishing someone good luck, correct me if I'm wrong :O)

Never really understood that expression, guess I could google it, maybe after I put my groceries away.

Good evening, please remember that there is a bicycle Time Trial race from the Greenbriar to just above Elliot's pitch tomorrow from 9-1. A time trial is an event where the riders start one at a time on a 30 second interval. you won't see packs racing uphill, but there may be riders passing on the left. It's an individual event. They will finish just below town and they will ride back down the canyon, downhill is not a race. Give yourself extra time tomorrow, yes, it is race season!

We had a very good time in the '70's in Lefthand Canyon! We bought 8 acres for $7K in 1971, tore down a barn/garage on Mapleton Hill, brought all the old 2x4's etc up above our oblong 8 acres on Nugget Hill, dumped them and dragged the wood down to our site and built a 12x24' cabin. There was no road; eventually we got a dial phone which was a party line. We shlepped 5 gal containers of water from Arthur and Bianca's spring until we laid down 400' of hose from the house above us. Light was from kerosene lamps - the old days! We got jobs and showered at the NBRC - then off to San Diego for grad school(s). We modernized when I was pregnant with Tyler Stokes (1982), and still own that house on Nugget Hill. It was a good community on Nugget in those years, including a half dozen kids in the '80's.

We use Neighborhood Chimney Sweep in Ward (303)990-7255 Dodi & Jacob (they bought the biz from Leaf Running Rabbit). Prices have gone up (during Leaf's era) to $180.

Hippie does not, by any means, have anything to do the term wook.
The vernacular will most likely not be in anyones vocabulary that was born before 1977.
And if you are posting here and/or on a computer that is not in a library then you are most likely not a wook.

To the untrained eye, they can appear very similar.
The difference....
Wooks steal without prejudice.
Wooks do LOTS drugs & mostly the nasty ones.
Wooks will sell you fake drugs.
Wooks have no respect for anyone or anything & typically only respect whoever can get them Ketamine.
Wooks have no ambition, motivation, or drive other than to do drugs.
Wooks will steal from you without a second thought. (twice for emphasis)
Wooks start wildfires with illegal campfires.

If this criteria does not apply to your lifestyle then, carry-on & don't worry I wasn't talking about you.

Tim it sounds like you were NOT a wook & if you knew what I meant, you most likely would be on the on the other side of that conversation.

I don’t know much at all about Wookies – first heard the term here. But the posts regarding them brings to mind discussions I had a number of times in the early 1970s in Ray Fisher’s pickup when we would pass a hippy hitchhiker. He was a conservative, dynamiter by trade; and drilling for him was often my go-to job when I couldn’t find other work. He would look at the long-haired hitchhiker and express some expletive followed by a comment about how worthless hippies were. I would then note that I, with my long hair, long beard and old jeans was a hippy. He would disagree stating that I wasn’t like them. I worked for money. I said that the hitchhiker, like almost all of the hippies I knew, also probably worked for money whenever he needed it. Ray would then say that I bathed regularly and didn’t spend my time drugged out. I would then note that the hitchhiker didn't appear to be drugged out, and remind him that I smoked a fair amount of marijuana and was not immune from occasionally taking LSD. And yes, I bathed regularly, but so did most longhairs. He would say, okay, but you have values and you live in a house and have pride in what you’re doing. I would then remind him that my house was a cabin that lacked running water and electricity, and that this allowed me to not have to work too much and to spend my time outdoors, with friends, reading and meditating. At this point Ray would become quiet and change the subject.
Now of course, after having raised kids and having had a career, my life is – at least nominally – a lot more conventional. However, I have no regrets about those years when my life style was unconventional, I was labeled a hippy, often subject to disparagement and even thrown In jail once because of my appearance. Which leads me today to not want to find myself on the other side of that conversation.

Lock your cars, pay attention to any suspect characters, listen for strange noises in the dark & first n' foremost, don't feed them, let them recharge your crystals, camp in your yard, or they will never leave.

I was wooked last spring, when they stole my mandolin, fishing & climbing gear, etc...out of my truck.

BE WOOK AWARE!

Before we drop it off at Resource, figured I would ask if any JT'ers would like it.
There is a stack of 2x4's, 4x8' plywood, 2x8's and some random other boards. It looks like its in decent shape & has been covered.

I think we can improve emergency communications by distributing the Walkie-Talkies, both to people likely to need assistance, and people likely to be listening. However, I think it's likely that many of the people who get them will try them for a few days and then put them in a bureau drawer. When someone has an emergency they may remember where they put the dang thing, but there won't be anyone listening. One possible solution is to leave them on much of the time and get in the habit of chatting around with our neighbors. Make it a form of entertainment. Perhaps have an informal evening net that would help us notice someone who hasn't been on the air today. We need to be able to help someone who calls for help as well as someone who's down and can't call.

In the case of needing assistance which a local person can provide, someone on the net could help or find someone else who could.

In the case of needing assistance from outside, such as an ambulance, someone on the net can get word to the Fire Department. Also, Robert or I can pass a message through Airlink via Ham Radio. I'm working on other Ham capabilities in case Airlink is down too or none of the Airlink group are available.

What do you think?

FYI...

Emergency warning sirens to be tested beginning April 1
Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County and the City of Boulder will begin audible testing of the countywide emergency sirens at 10 a.m. on Monday, April 1. The test is the first of the monthly emergency audible siren tests, which take place each year on the first Monday of each month from April through August.

The audible siren tests will occur twice on each testing day, at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., on April 1, May 6, June 3, July 1 and August 5.

Siren tests ensure that all systems and procedures are working properly during the season of peak flood danger. The tests also promote public awareness of the warning sirens located throughout Boulder County.

Louisville, Superior, and Jamestown sirens will only participate in the first audible test on April 1. After this test, residents in these communities will not hear the sirens unless there is an emergency.

The annual siren testing is a good reminder for residents to sign up for emergency alerts at www.BoCo911alert.com.

Should Boulder County experience severe weather during one of the planned audible tests, the siren tests for that day may be cancelled. For updated information, visit www.BoulderOEM.com.

Residents are encouraged to review their own emergency preparedness plans and discuss what they would do in the event of a flash flood or other emergency. For more information about personal preparedness, visit www.ReadyColorado.com.

Used to alert residents to potential danger from a flood or other immediate threat, there are 29 outdoor warning sirens in place across Boulder County, including in Boulder, Erie, Jamestown, Lafayette, Louisville, Lyons, Marshall, Eldorado Springs, Superior and the University of Colorado at Boulder.

All Boulder County sirens undergo weekly tests throughout the year, using a software program that performs a “silent” test.

Aloha Jimtowners, well I see that the communication Sunami has hit the cord of communications outage, I look in on the web-site every morning and evening and this is the first issue that I have seen in a long time that has brought forth so many responses. Growing in Hawaii we had the following option, 1-Runners 2-Outrigger Canoes and last Drums. Putting all this aside someone mentioned putting the Ball in the proper court, namely Century Link. They must be aware of when a problem occurs and thus must Communicate or better said Be Informative and contact 1- Boulder County Sheriff Department 2- Jamestown and Lrfthand FireDepartments, these are the Three Fisrt Emergency Responders to all other Emergenceis when requested. The Jamestown Board and Mayor could make a formal written request to Century Link and the aforementioned Fire Departments. They could all be given addresses of all those whom would need this kind of assistance. Just a thought from one who still missies My Home Town and wish I could be on such a list. Mahalo Auguste in spirit and John.

Thanks for that info, David M and O’B. You guys have a slant on this that the rest of us don’t.

Problem still is somebody who is mobility challenged (or otherwise alone and vulnerable during, e.g., bad snow storm, like a new parent or resident undergoing medical treatments) and can’t run to the town hall, Fire Hall, or even to a neighbor who’s on the JVFD. Been there, done that before my hip replacement (thankfully Steve could run around like during the flood).

Sounds like some kind of a task force with reps from the town board and staff, JVFD, seniors, parents, ham operators, renters, etc. could be an effective approach. I know, people often hate the idea of a task force or committee but that may be the only way to get comprehensive input and come up with a plan that works for everybody.

Know that if the town is ever without power or Century Link, JVFD can call out to Boulder Communications for emergencies. So if that situation occurs again and you're in need of an emergency response, going to the Town Hall and/or Merc to locate a JVFD volunteer will lead you to someone that can help you to communicate an emergency to the proper response team. Yes, this regularly losing communication in Jamestown is getting frustrating! The local radio band is a good idea and the JVFD is happy to help coordinate alternate communications procedures for these situations.

The FD's can communicate easily with County Dispatch via radio, most reliably on the base station or truck radios, packsets (handhelds) are only a few watts and don't really transmit out well from town. Perhaps a place to start would be to set up the Town Hall/FD as a "hot spot", the trick is staffing the fire hall or town hall when there is an outage. In the past a tone alert has been sent out to let the FF's know that phone (hence 911) service is down. If there's an emergency in town the message has to find a way to the town or fire hall and ultimately to the fire hall for communication with Boulder Dispatch.

The need for better (or any!) communications during a phone outage is clear. We have pieces of the puzzle in place (e.g., Walkie-Talkie sets, ham radios and operators, and some working relationships with operators in other mountain towns like Gold Hill).

But as Robert said, there needs to be some refinement. And somebody needs to put the puzzle pieces together.

Radio communications:
Nancy makes a great point.
JVFD may be the link between our phones being down and the outside world.
Amateur radio operators such as myself and Lynwood have a hard time getting info to Boulder.
Without further training or equipment, we're kinda useless.
The walkie talkie initiative didn't quite take off, and
we DO need external comms.

Collin, the initial idea was for each vulnerable resident to be teamed up with an able-bodied buddy. The idea of enabling all Walkie-Talkie owners to communicate on one channel needs to be explored, as well as how to interconnect these residents with the town hall, the JVFD, our 3 existing JT ham radio operators (and 1+ in the Bar-K?), etc.

Maybe it’s time for a comprehensive emergency communications plan to be developed. I did some preliminary work on this and will provide it to the town board if they want to spearhead such a project.

As Steve said, we’ve had some family circumstances that preclude my taking a lead on this. But I’m happy to participate in a discussion if the Trustees or anybody else wants to.

Collin, all the tests were done on Channel 1 but that's not to preclude other channels being used. That's where users will have to decide what works best for them. The original thought was that each zone would use a seperate channel but that's not a requirement. And since the zones and their members have not been set up it might be easiest to start with using Channel 1 and evolve as needs dictate. (BTW I am not a walkie-talkie expert. I assume that channel frequencies (1, 2, etc.) are the same across manufacturers. If that's not the case then people should agree on actual frequencies when different brands/models are used.)

Yes, we have walkie-talkies as Laura said. Due to a variety of more-important-to-us family circumstances we have not been able to give them the priority some people would like. If you want radios then please call me to arrange to get them. People need to take responsibility. We will not be going around town to deliver them.

The walkie-talkies are intended to help bring some peace of mind to vulnerable people. For example, to lessen the sense of isolation in a phone outage. You must be aware that they are NOT for use in a 911 emergency when the phones are working. They are not for recreational use.

To be useful, you’ll need someone to talk to who also has another walkie-talkie. Therefore, you’ll need to arrange for a “buddy” and do any necessary pre-planning and coordination with your buddy.

As Laura said, the radios that were purchased were tested in town and were able to communicate within most of the town limits. Logical zones were also identified for which it was thought nearby neighbors could coordinate to support one another. However, because the range is fairly good, and if it gives you more comfort to buddy-up with a friend across town, than there is no reason that could not be done once you verify that the walkie-talkies can communicate.

Amateur radio operators have regularly scheduled check-ins during times when there is NO emergency. Everyone who is able turns on their radio at a predetermined time (usually weekly) and someone (net-control) is given the responsibility to organize the "traffic" of the people speaking in an orderly and efficient manner. This could be something that gets everyone comfortable and familiar with speaking on a simplex device and can be a great benefit to emergency personnel as well. Next step is an Amateur (Ham) Radio Licence for better more powerful communications abilities.

 There was a grant a few years ago obtained by a group in Jamestown that received a lot of walkie-talkies for these exact circumstances! They are here right now just waiting to be given out to those who need them in times just like these when regular communications are down. Nancy Edelstein was the pioneer of this effort, so please contact her to distribute those radios. The only issue with them is that they need to be turned ON so that someone hears when you are trying to talk to them! They are no good if they are not turned on. So a system needs to be put into place where the radios get turned on so that you can hear if someone needs something. The group identified zones in our town and vulnerable populations, such as seniors and those who live farther away from the main town to receive a radio. They work for quite a distance and Gold Hill also uses them. Nancy Edelstein will have all this information. Time to distribute these radios and establish a system where they get turned on in times of need.

Not so funny thing concerning Century Link when they have service related issues is the lack of effective communication in a time when multiple methods of communication is king. After all, they are in the communication business...

One thing I've learned in any business related issue is to contact your paying customers before they have to contact you with a reasonable explanation. It's just a common courtesy, or should be. More than likely it's some screwy corporate policy concerning admission of fault, liabilities, not my job mentality and so on.

The very same folks that are tasked with these responsibilities are the very same folks that would get their knickers in a knot if the shoe where on the other foot.
