I didn’t get any bites so I’m posting again...

Someone in town has got to know someone that is needing some side work right now?!?!

Need some yardwork and handyman support and plan to PAY WELL. I have a few days worth of work.
-finish yard clearing project and hall to brush pile- will require a truck or trailer, I have a good chainsaw if it’s needed but mostly is just clearing and hauling
-hanging a few large swings, will require power tools and ladder in my very steep backyard. I have most hardware for the project purchased.
-sealing up a few rodent entry points around perimeter of property. Want this done right and happy to buy supplies required for a quality long term fix.
-putting together a few pieces of furniture for a bedroom(my worst nightmare lol)
-potential other random things

I work a very full time job from home now and my partner in crime is out of town for awhile, Im a single mom and desperate to get these projects taken care of. Ultimately I hardly have enough time to accomplish basic adulting, So anyone with some extra time and the skill set PLEASE reach out or send me your recommendations.

Can start asap and will pay in whatever form( cash, Venmo, check) works best when jobs are complete. I have a very full plate so would love for clear and transparent communication and an organized professional approach. I don’t have time to deal with any sorta hot mess situation or poor communication and like I said I’m willing to pay well for that.

Re: Pat D. From bar-k qt.

Smell of smoke. I just called Boulder County about the strong smell of smoke this morning and was told they are searching the area to make certain there is no local fire. But they believe the smoke is from the 13000 acres fire in Grand Junction.

Thanks for your attention Jamestown. We are so honored to share food with you these last few weeks. In order to keep doing it we are going to implement some more guidelines to help keep each other safe. We will have lines on the floor outlining some more distance than we have been observing in the past. Pleas don’t touch the food on the tables. In addition we ask that you leave your reusable bags at home, and we ask you to help us limit the passing of items back and forth to the final handoff at the end. And as usual remember your masks and please distance responsibly. See you all at 3:00 pm by the tennis courts!

Now for the fun stuff, WE GOT CORN! WE GOT HOT DOGS! Come down and get some summertime groceries! We will have the usual like some wonderful produce, eggs, milk, Bread, some tasty treats.! We still have some hand sanitizer so please bring your empty bottles and containers and we will top you off.

We also have fresh farm-grown PRODUCE from our new CSA shares so please come share this food with us! No kidding, If you have ever wanted to have a CSA, now you do! (You get to share it with your neighbors as well!)

Also if you would like to volunteer with us getting this food to our neighbors we would love to have ya, contact Jaye Brotherton (30three-seven18-0seven61)

I have used this Anti-Skunk Recipe and it works:

1 quart of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide solution
1/4 Cup Baking Soda
1 tsp. Liquid Soap

Mix together and immediately apply to the affected animal. Skunk essence is made of
sulfur molecules. The materials in the recipe, when mixed together, form alkaline
peroxide that chemically changes the skunk essence into sulfuric acid, which is
completely odorless. Mix the solution when you are ready to use and do not store.

An Ounce of Prevention... Mask, Distance and Keep Your Grubby Finger's Away From Your Mouth, Nose and Eyes :O)

Think of it this way, does ones need for socializing outweigh the cost of potentially spreading the virus. We all have our justifications...

The current consensus is airborne transmission, exposure time, viral loading in confined spaces or a heavy viral dose from a drop or two of spittle during a lively conversation and or a good belly laugh. There's probably a few more added to the list in the time it took me to type this.

Who knows what the "experts" will learn in coming weeks, months, years.

I'd hate to find out a week or so later that if I become ill that I potentially may have unknowingly passed the virus on to one or more folks that pass it on to one or more folks, you know, that exponential factor stuff.

I'd say for the most part everyone has been pretty vigilant and dutiful, but it only takes one slip-up to keep the virus chugging along, like it's doing now...

I'm not paying attention to the numbers/stat's, for some reason we tend to want to find comfort in a perceived positive number or negative number, well which ever number is perceived as good when it comes to viruses. There are too many variables in the equation, too many entities with their personal agenda's and beliefs tossing numbers into the mix.

The only numbers that count will be the finally tally.

Well, never mind on the hydrogen peroxide, good neighbors.

According to the highly reputable source, Tik Tok, we used dry baking soda only, and it seemed to work ... for now. I think the dry solution will be easier on his face and eye area.

In the Mask-Wearing Department, but for a different reason, does anyone have any hydrogen peroxide?
Friday just had an encounter with a skunk.

I absolutely support wearing masks and social distancing, by the way. Now our family has two good reasons to cover our nose and mouth.

Total count of Covid related deaths in Colorado for July was 137. If folks practice mask wearing/physical distancing people don't need to die. It's frustrating to sit in on the Weekly State EMS meetings and listen to the same issues being repeated: people not wearing masks/ignoring guidelines, large social gatherings, poor hygiene. Ironically, church choirs are being hit pretty hard right now since they allowed the churches to re-open. Needless death is just that, needless.

Hi everyone, this is a long shot but figured it's worth a try. I live in the Bar K and have a 3 year old and 1.5 year old who have been going to a small daycare in Nederland which is closing its doors suddenly in a few weeks. I am trying to figure out childcare for 1-2 days per week for both kids, and wondering if there are any possible solutions out there. Possibly any trustworthy nannies/childcare specialists who already have or want to open a small daycare out of their home? (With my 2 kids and their playschool group there are 7 total actively seeking care) Or possibly any local families with young kids who might want to nanny share or already have a sort of group care up in the mountains figured out that could accommodate a couple more? Trying to figure out my kids first, obviously, but also putting feelers out for all of us losing our care. Thanks for any tips or help! abrieb@gmail.com

This is an informative graph, from our state government, at
    covid19.colorado.gov/data/case-data
It shows the MOST IMPORTANT pandemic statistic: DEATHS. No need to argue whether it's high because of increased testing. The website has another graph that shows the age distributions among the deaths.

The death count for the final week of July was 32, out of 5.8 million people in Colorado.

* This graph shows deaths in Colorado among people diagnosed with COVID-19 or with COVID-19 listed on their death certificate, recorded by the date of death. COVID-19 may or may not be listed as the cause of death on the death certificate. It may be several days between the day a death occurs and the day it appears in this graph. The number of deaths reported may change day-to-day (particularly within the past week), as reports of new deaths are received.

Thio, this is my chosen quarantine team. Taken across from the Merc last week. We like chin scratchies, belly rubs and unguarded chicken coops.

When we go to pizza night, we don't really freely socialize. We know who we're going to hang out with, and it's pretty much the same people we always hang out with. We have similar values when it comes to social distancing and quarantine practices--all of which in theory makes hanging out at the town square less risky than free-for-all partying would be.

RANDY!!! Those trees aren't wearing masks!!!

In all seriousness, I greatly appreciate Rainbow, Adam, and all of the Merc-ers for doing what they can to be safe and still remain our commUNITY hub. It's incredible all they do for us and we need to keep supporting. Unfortunately, it requires more people and more money than we Jimbillies can provide to stay afloat. In the past, summers were booming with cyclists who supported, as well as with folks who came up for live music & great food on a regular basis. The Merc took a huge hit after the flood when road construction prohibited the summer booms from happening for many years! And now THIS! The impact is strongly felt on any day of the week when the Merc is closed. It's a complete ghost town. Imagine not having it at all. We must keep it going, safely. Those who feel unsafe should order takeout and stay home as others suggested. Perhaps we can all brainstorm how to help the Merc stay alive this winter when dining outside becomes impossible. Thank you, Rainbow and Adam for all you do to keep the soul of Jimtown alive!

So many good comments! It's like the elephant in the room where everyone's experience is personal, from their vantage point, and basically contributes to the whole, as it should be.

The few broader points seem to be having to do with how we as a community can support the Merc to stay open (donations, monthly winter contributions, anything Adam & Rainbow come up with). Anyone who knows me knows that I am a big Merc/Rainbow-Adam supporter. A second important point is taking care of ourselves and others by following the basic COVID protocols (masks, hand washing, spatial distancing, avoiding large especially indoor gatherings) as individuals and as a community. And a third point, since JT has clearly been "discovered", is how we as a community via our Town Board, personal responsibility, and other ways, help conserve what we love, including community gatherings, knowing we're seeing a big uptick in visitors and our geographic boundaries are very permeable.

And of course, as has been said, if one is uncomfortable with Town Square meals, as I am, I can stay away and order to-go or just make a donation when I/we can. I do worry about COVID finding Jamestown; and people letting their guards down because the need to socialize is so important. Even with personal responsibility all around, and coming full circle, being weirdly grateful, I suppose, that out-of-towners are essentially keeping the Merc running, it's just terribly sad that we cannot gather safely anymore with our neighbors on Monday nights, Thursday dinners, Fri & Sat nights, and weekend brunches like the old days. My earlier post probably just comes down to my reactions to all the change, wishing COVID would just go away (even if there are invaluable lessons), so thanks for commenting, and sharing without attacking.

I would also like to commend Rainbow, Adam and the entire Merc staff for creating a safe and welcoming environment in the town square. With the possible exception of the somewhat chaotic (and extremely cathartic) first Pizza Night, each event we've attended has allowed our "quarantine pod" to find a safely distanced spot to enjoy the food and entertainment on offer. Though the participation of a business from "down below" does seem to have skewed the ratio of locals to non-locals somewhat, I've personally never witnessed any groups who willfully ignore the requirement to mask up when not seated.

That said... no, the virus is not "way overrated." It's a real thing and it's going to be here for a while. But congregating outside with chosen members of our quarantine teams does offer a relatively safe option under the circumstances.

The Merc has been doing an awesome job over the past few months! But I think the fear and panic over the virus is WAY overrated. Most people who get it have no or very minor symptoms. Let’s enjoy the park and what the Merc have to offer. Lets party like there’s no tomorrow people. Live life to the fullest.

I have been having an internal battle trying to hold myself back from posting here, but I’ve clearly given up on that.

As restaurant owners ourselves, we’ve seen firsthand that trying to survive on to-go orders alone is simply not possible. In fact, we've had to close two locations and are trying to open another during this disaster.

The Merc and it’s staff have been working tirelessly to stay afloat and have been following all safety protocols from the beginning. I can agree, however, that seeing so many folks coming up to escape the city is a real bummer and makes me think twice about attending. That being said, I know there are many community members who have the luxury of working from home/staying at home most of the time, while others like us, do not. If you feel safer at home, sticking to takeout orders seems like the best plan.

For the rest of us, I really appreciate the effort that Rainbow, Adam, and staff have put in to bringing back some semblance of normalcy in this community.

As many of you have said “the virus is here to stay”. Hopefully, the same goes for the Merc.

The Merc is responsible to provide us with their wonderful food.(Period)
   What is done after receiving it is up to the Customer!!
   If you are uncomfortable with the set-up in our beatiful park,
 Don't Go There!!
     Go Home!!
  Most of the folks ordering food and drinks are adults and can make their own choice about where to go next.
   I miss our wonderful
"used-to-be" Merc experience, but as our Liar-in-Chief has just said
"It is what it is"

So, buck up,--Order food or not, --
Wash your hands, and
Wear Your DAMN Mask.

Nancy, we've used Fred's for more than a decade and have been pleased with them. There was a mild kerfuffle a few years back when they switched drivers, but they've always provided good service and a fair price. Not sure what the $/gal is at the moment because we haven't had a fill recently.

On a totally different subject, I'm looking to switch propane companies and would like some feedback on peoples' experience with Fred's (used to have them years ago before Fred passed away, but not more recently), Polar Gas, or any others that deliver to Jamestown. (Ferrellgas, Hygiene, Amerigas?) Agfinity/Peak to Peak is a pain & wants $2.83/gallon for summer fill, so I'm looking at switching.

I think that part of what makes the Merc-park scene seem like people aren't following protocols is that people come as families or in groups that may or may not be "virus pods", so even though it looks like they're not social distancing, it may just be that they are from the same household or in a pod. Of course, there are some people who are not social distancing and that's problematic, and we all need to use our masks when we're not eating. If you're not comfortable with eating in the park, it might be best to do takeout to where you have control of the space. Maybe even have someone pick up your order for you. I wholeheartedly concur that the Merc staff has been doing an excellent job of following the restaurant protocols for COVID-19, and that they are such a precious resource in our commUNITY that we need to support them in whatever ways we can so that they will survive the pandemic as a business and an institution.

I don't think that Wendy was expressing concern over the merc staff and their preparation/execution of caution/precaution. And I read that Wendy very much supports the merc's efforts to stay afloat. And I agree with David that come October that opportunity will evaporate. I am hopeful that we continue on the trajectory that we're on for keeping the town healthy and that the vaccines are accepted soon. I do feel that the town square gatherings are invasive, and generally overcrowded. The last square event Jen and I attended we were 2 of only 6 Jimbillies, everyone else (the majority) were not from town. It is exceptionally hard to eat/drink around a mask, and I've noticed that compliance with re-donning the mask when folks are moving around in the town square is pretty hit or miss, and that's not the merc staff's responsibility to enforce. David is correct about dining in Boulder, Lyons or Longmont, however the restaurant has the ability to control the number of people being seated/served, whereas, in the park, the merc doesn't have that same ability nor should their staff be the park police. So, if the town wishes to continue this practice, the town needs to work together to self-enforce. If there aren't enough seats/tables/space for folks to maintain appropriate distance between their virus pods, then those who are excess should come back later or otherwise respect the health and well being of other town square users. There are too many people dying as a result of people who refuse to wear a mask/maintain physical distancing.

Well said, David. We have been to the Merc for several pizza nights and found that everyone there was wearing masks and respectful of social distancing. The nights we have been there were not overcrowded with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. We were so happy when the Merc decided to do the evenings in the park. Really helped us to feel that even though life may never return to normal, some things and some places will still go on...and make life worth living. The couple of hours "out" have done my soul a world of good and I never felt unsafe. Thank you Rainbow and Adam and staff.

The situation at the Merc and the park is an outbreak waiting to happen. I’ve seen many people in the park not social distancing and not wearing a mask. What price is Jamestown willing to pay to allow this behavior to continue? Stick with to-go meals and ditch the gatherings. The town board needs to step up and stop this nonsense.

Wendy, I've got to disagree with your assessment that the Merc's efforts to survive and provide is "a disaster waiting to happen." If you're uncomfortable with the evening, by all means, do take out. But from what I've witnessed and experienced, Rainbow, Adam, and their staff are proceeding with the utmost of care and attention to guidelines. They're not being cops, and can only police people so much in the park, but they're distancing and masking while handling a lot of hungry people and folks lining up or near the Merc are doing the same. That people are enjoying a rare opportunity to socialize while in the park is completely reasonable and again, from what I've witnessed, most are well distanced and respecting the boundaries of those that are less comfortable. Oddly enough what people do when they get together is put things in their face, so masks become a particular challenge when eating, drinking, smoking. But I'd argue that people are distancing and what looks like a crazy, uproarious crowd from a distance is actually many smaller, sensitive groups.

I think that it would be an overreaction to cut this off due a few uncomfortable people. If you go to any eating establishments below, it's really not much of a different scene except that people are eating in hot, exposed pavement instead of a lovely park. I heard a story the other day that they're anticipating the complete loss of up to 75% of the small businesses in New York as a result of this misery. We've got one that we can't afford to lose. They're providing a much needed gathering place as they have in all times of challenge in Jamestown. You're absolutely right Wendy, "how sad it would be to see it spread here". But also, "the virus is here to stay", and so are we. I for one feel that the Merc is doing it's very best and that we need to give the generally aware and sensitive community of Jamestown the benefit of the doubt when judging their behavior from a drive-by. And worse, come October, the loss of outdoor gatherings is going to make for a dreadfully long & lonely winter. My 2C.

Erynn, try NoCo Septic https://www.nocoseptic.com/out of Mead. They did Cal-Wood's multiple tanks. I bet there might be others who would schedule with you. (I might be one, but I think propane summer fill comes first.)

Hi neighbors seeking some recommendations for a couple of things, I know there has been some info posted on here in previous months but can’t seem to dig the info out.

1) I am in need of some handyman/yard work support. Willing to pay a fair rate for a few full days worth of work. I live on West Mesa:)
Items for help on my list include but not limited too.
-completing yard clearing and hauling to the brush pile
-weeding and weed whacking
-hanging a large swing and a couple hammocks in my very steep backyard, will require ladder and power tools, I already have the hardware ready to go
- help putting together a few furniture items
- sealing up a few outside entry points around the house, as part of rodent mitigation. Seeking actual skills to do this right. Prepared to buy materials as needed.

If you or someone you know is the right person for the job, looking or open to this kind of work please contact me, work can start ASAP.

2) I need my septic pumped and do not want to give business to Sullivan or Acme based on previous experiences, who else has fair rates and is willing to come up here?

Thanks so much for the help, please feel free to drop me a text or an email

When we started our fundraiser to help the Navajo Nation, we decided to dream big, so we set ourselves a lofty goal. I didn't believe we would ever actually reach that goal but yesterday we hit the big $20K! When I say we, I mean everyone who donated, even if it was $5, or a bottle of hand sanitizer. I can't express how incredibly grateful we are for the love and generosity shown by all of you, that made it possible for those big dreams to come true!
Our second run was just two trucks and a donated trailer (that we left down there) but we were packed to the gills with food, art supplies, school supplies, toys, camping gear, and a 275 gallon water tank.
We will hopefully be purchasing more solar light kits for elders who live off the grid, since the first ones we purchased were a big hit.
The remaining funds will be going to the food sovereignty project, to be used for more gardening supplies, water catchment supplies, and stipends for people doing the work on the ground.
We continue to be in contact with the folks down in the Navajo Nation, and further collaboration is a possibility. Not sure what that may look like but there has been talk of a fall run, so stay tuned!

Just wondering what/if anything the Town Board and our Health Committee decided in yesterday’s meeting?
You all know we love love the Merc and Adam and Rainbow, and the cuisine, but those Town Square crowds are simply disasters waiting to happen. As popular as the gatherings are, especially to out-of-towners who think they are ESCAPING Boulder crowds, there are simply too many folks as the night goes on, music blares, and the alcohol takes effect. Hardly COVID-safe. And how sad it will be to see it spread here. (To-Go meals, including alcohol, burritos, were simply terrific but sadly not enough apparently.) I’d be happy to contribute to funding for a drive-through booth The virus is here to stay.

Look for the link -Requests for Proposals- under “Recent Posts” and see what you think. If you know of anyone in our area who has any heavy equipment you might mention this to them for us, also.

Please contact our Senators, Cory Gardner and Michael Bennett
Ask them to pass the Heroes Act.
Hospitals are losing money during the pandemic.
So they've cut workers pay and benefits. (Yes, mine.)
They have been laying off workers. (No, not me.)
Heroes Act will fund COVID-19 testing and tracing and ensure every American can receive free COVID-19 treatment.
It will give front line workers hazard pay. (Yes, me. And postal workers, grocery workers and other essential personnel.)
Contacting them is easy. You've got google. Go to their home page and click the link to send them an email. Or call them. The number is there.
Thanks for your attention.

Announcement re FairTaxColorado, the initiative to pay for schools and infrastructure by changing the flat 4.6% income tax on all Coloradans to a graduated tax on incomes for the happy rich. Although Jamestown and the Front Range procured more than the required 2% of registered voters signatures, the rest of Colorado rural counties did not. So sadly the initiative will not be presented to the Secretary of State to go on the ballot. Our schools will all see a 25% budget cut this fall. Our public schools are in serious trouble. Please work toward saving our hugely essential excellent public school education in any way you can or we will lose it. We’ve taken our schools (and postal service) for granted. But we no longer can really do that. Freedoms and services require work. Your friend, Wendy

Go to “how to complete the census online”.

The online window will be replaced by people going house to house, so best to do online before then. (I’m now not sure about the moving forward from the Oct 31 date; that’s not verified in other places.)

Hey JimBillies ~

Just a reminder! FRIDAY is TRASH DAY. Western Disposal typically shows up 12-2PM.
Trash should be put on the street as close to this time as possible and not earlier,
You who do the ORANGE BAGs can put your bags at the collection point in front of the FireHouse on the way to work. NOT THE ROLLOFF IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL! Trash is the No.1 cause of BEAR DESTRUCTION.

BEAR activity is picking up. The Bar-K is experiencing break-ins from a BEAR that is a "Trash-Oholic".
It is all avoidable with SAFE BEAR AWARE practices. If you need help please speak up!

Please POST ON THE QT all BEAR sightings. It greatly helps those WHO CARE to track activity and alert neighbors to BEAR activity in their neighborhood. BE PREPARED!

Thanks for helping us SAVE OUR BEARS !

Anybody remember the Chutney Brothers band in Boulder? Don't know everywhere they played, but members of Lefthand String Band/Leftover Salmon lived with them out on Cherryvale, and I remember them playing at the Dark Horse. They were kind of a local big deal, at least in my eyes. Peggy's HiLo was a legendary venue, and the Colorado Coal Company, as I recall, was where the Holiday Inn Express is today (roughly), and it was a run-down old motel that had been converted to apartments. The Olympic (bowling alley) was big fun. And don't forget the Holiday Drive-in (now the Holiday neighborhood). Many fun times had there - and oh, golly I'm old! ;) Wendy, it's happening everywhere, and I'm sure our elders felt the same way about the places that cropped up in the '70's that we now reminisce about. I know people who lived in Boulder in the '50's and it was tiny, except for the University. Lots of farmland and orchards and far less McMansions, bicycles and trust funders.

Another vintage bar was the Tin Drum on "east Pearl" - ie Pearl & 16th - hardcore drinkers in there. Then, you get into the '70's with the Blue Note, the Catacombs, but the ones everyone's mentioned (Grandma's, Peggy's HiLo, Skunk Creek, Hungry Farmer) were 1960's and those were free, fun, wild, drunk places! Remember the Lamplighter (awesome pizzas "outside of town" - ie Arapahoe & 25th), the Sink, Tulagi's. Boulder razes and replaces at lamentable, ill-advised, costs to urban life! I guess impermanence really is a truism. Anyway, this is a fun walk down memory lane with y'all!

Both I think we’re out of town Which meant east of 28th St. And both were a bit loose re what kind of Id was required. I’m way impressed that you folks can remember the actual band of the bands. Earliest local I remember was Freddi and Henchi (Skunk Creek Inn?) and Flash Cadillac for some reason.

Hey there. Does anybody out there remember the name of that juke joint that used to be on the east side of the highway just past the overpass on the way out of Boulder headed toward Longmont on the diagonal. I remember seeing Evan Johns and the H-bombs and I think Koko Taylor out there back in the Seventies. That was a jumping place! Wish it was still there. SvH (Also, anybody remember enjoying the New Starlight Ramblers back then. They used to play at that club out by where Resource is on Arapahoe?) Man, I miss that stuff. (Pic is of Evil Cheezy)

Hi hoRRible hiTTle-
There are some really great radios out there and you can absolutely get reception here in J-town. However, what will really make the difference is what kind of antenna you are going to use. Many of them will come with a small "whip" antenna, but you may want to consider a radio with an external connector so you can put up something inside or outside, which will greatly improve your reception. It doesn't have to be fancy and a simple long wire will help you pull in weaker stations. I would be glad to help you with a set-up (303-229-8919).

JAMESTOWN !

SOMEONE/s has put THEIR HOUSEHOLD TRASH in the dumpster at the School!
I pulled out 1 orange bag so it could be picked up today as per Western Disposal's
schedule. There are 3 or more black bags of household trash still in there which
I will help the Western Disposal driver Jose, pull out and haul away properly.

That construction dumpster does NOT get picked up until Western is called to empty it!
And is NOT FOR PUBLIC USE!

But YOU already know that. I spoke to the construction company supervisor and they are
not responsible and are aware of the BEAR issue.


This is total BS and irresponsible behaviour considering we are in BEAR SEASON!

I will be monitoring the problem.
I will have a camera on that dumpster.
I will confront offenders.
I will get CPW involved if the problem continues.
You will be cited if you are guilty.

Pass it on to your neighbors. It will not be tolerated.

If anyone has a problem with my request, my number is in the Town Directory
and i live @ 139 Mesa Street. You best be prepared as i have no patience with
LAZY A** SLACKERS contributing to the destruction of innocent BEARS!

BEARS LIVES MATTER !

Lots of mice this year? This might help. They climb up the cloth and jump for the peanut butter smeared on the pill bottle. It spins on the coat hanger wire and drops them into the bucket. If you like mice you could take them for a ride to a better life. If you don't want to bother, just put a few inches of water in the bucket. There are two wiggles in the wire that don't show in the pic, to keep the pill bottle centered. The night after I made it I caught four.

Hi Jimtowners! If you haven't yet, please take 10 minutes to help locals for 10 YEARS by filling out the 2020 Census. Our economic recovery will depend on how many mountain folks are counted. Right now the flatlands in Boulder County are at a 70+% response rate, whereas the Bar-K/Jamestown area is only at 46.1%, and Jamestown proper is at 58.4%. If nonprofits and local governments can't show community need for essential services, we'll lose funding to places with higher response rates! Please encourage friends and family to do the census: 2020census.gov :)

Allan, yeah, pine cones were abundant this year, odd part, usually the tree squirrels harvest them before they open and release the seeds. They usually gnaw them loose and drop them to the ground, then cache them.

I didn't see that activity this year. By my count, tree squirrel numbers seem about the same. A few big Reds, one or two pesky, yappy little grays and an occasional black tufted / tasseled ear type.

The ground squirrels must be Pandemic Refugee's :O)

Typically when the lighting is shielded and directed towards the ground it's not a big issue. The biggest offenders in the neighborhood are the street lights. If you stand on the lower main bridge and look at the firehouse notice that the lights are shielded and directed towards the ground (example of lighting done right), then turn around and look at the street light on lower main which is poorly shielded (lighting done wrong).

The issue with the street lights are:
 - They are not well shielded, the light spills outside of it's useful area into peoples houses. With better cut-offs in the lighting fixture the spill light and glare can be reduced or eliminated
 - They are using short wavelength bulbs (blueish color)



The following is taken from www.darksky.org

Five Principles for Responsible Outdoor Lighting:
If light is deemed useful and necessary, follow these guidelines to prevent, or when that’s not possible, minimize light pollution.

     USEFUL – All light should have a clear purpose.
     Before installing or replacing a light, determine if light is needed. Consider how the use of light will impact the area, including wildlife and the environment. Consider using reflective paints or self–luminous markers for signs, curbs, and steps to reduce the need for permanently installed outdoor lighting.

     TARGETED – Light should be directed only to where needed.
     Use shielding and careful aiming to target the direction of the light beam so that it points downward and does not spill beyond where it is needed.

     LOW LIGHT LEVELS – Light should be no brighter than necessary.
     Use the lowest light level required. Be mindful of surface conditions as some surfaces may reflect more light into the night sky than intended.

     CONTROLLED – Light should be used only when it is useful.
     Use controls such as timers or motion detectors to ensure that light is available when it is needed, dimmed when possible, and turned off when not needed.

     COLOR – Use warmer color lights where possible.
     Limit the amount of shorter wavelength (blue–violet) light to the least amount needed. Light where you need it, when you need it, in the amount needed, and no more.

Anyone else notice in the last few years increased Chipmunk sighting's ? I don't recall when I moved to town seeing as many as I have in the last few years. They're definitely cute, but I'm wondering how many in an area is too many. My main concern is that one has been tunneling under my house, that's a no-no and another is tunneling under a large tree and I'm concerned it may weaken the root system.
Then there's possibility of vehicle wiring damage from chewing, spotted one recently crawling around the underside and engine compartment of my truck that's a no-no, off limits.

Then there's the possibility of associated diseases from rodents and their Fleas and Ticks, that can and do jump from one species to another, including domesticated animals.

So far this spring and summer, I've live-trapped a few and released them down canyon at different random non-residential locations, only to have more take their place.

I was going to recommend more folks invest in their own live-trap's and make this an on going concerted effort, but I'm not sure if it's an effective approach or legal.

I don't feed any wildlife, so it's not food they're getting. Looks like maybe in my efforts not to attract wildlife by not feeding and only providing naturally occurring areas that wildlife can find shelter and forage has paid-off and backfired all at once :O)

And the poor hummingbirds, wasting time cruising my eaves looking for a feeder because they associate eaves with feeders, they're missing all the flowers.

The chokeberries in the Jamestown area are now well formed and will ripen in late August through September. The chokeberry fruit makes an excellent jam. However, chokeberry seeds, 1/3 to 1/2 of the berry are toxic. If the chokeberry shrub is on or near your property, be aware, the bears love them and will harvest the berries when they ripen to a dark red or black.

Visitors to Jamestown in the winter were amazed and I am sure thought is this guy for real? It’s 10 degrees below 0 and he is walking around “Barefoot”. But when you got to know him he had a big heart and he did help many Jimtowners.my Aloha to Jan. God Bless and Keep Safe. Auguste in Spirit and John.

People were so generous with material donations, that we are planning another trip down to the Navajo Nation, to take what we could not fit in the first load. There isn't space for much more but if you have something, feel free to contact me at earthnomad@hotmail.com , and I can let you know if it's something we could take. Water storage tanks and gardening supplies are still needed.
We are keeping the GoFundMe page up until at least the end of July. We can absolutely still use monetary donations, as they are going to buy gas for distribution of goods, as well as paying stipends for a crew to build gardens and hoop houses.
Here is what Kern Collymore said last week about the distribution "We have moved 12 out of the 15 systems and 3 out of the 5 275 gallon tanks already... we also worked with UNM extension office over in Farmington area to get some systems to a few families out that way... one person literally cried when I gave them a 275 barrel... thank yall so much for your help"
If you weren't able to give before but can now, or know someone that would still like to give, now is the time!
We leave this Thursday, July 23rd.
Please share the link to the fundraising page, once again, so we can continue to help out.
Thank you!!! 🙏🏼💚

Hi all, just an update on our fire danger, and a reminder of the Level 2 Fire Ban in effect for western Boulder County. We've moved from High to Very High fire danger. While we saw some light precipitation this week and there is some in the forecast for tomorrow, our 1,000 hour fuels (large dead timber) are around 10% fuel moisture and drying, at the point of kiln dried lumber. As it sits now if we get a start with wind on it we can expect the trees to be available and carry fire, torch and potentially crown. The smaller fuels; branches, shrub and grass were already available and will run. The good news is, though we've had some breezes and outflows, we've really lucked out on not having substantial wind events and that remains so in the near term forecast. And, all of the starts on the Front Range so far have been knocked down fast and with limited spread. Let's aim to keep it that way!

Thus, the Level 2 ban continues - what can and can't be done can be found on the Sheriff's office website: https://www.bouldercounty.org/news/forecas...reased-fire-danger/
In short, any fire on private and public land including pits, smokers, grills and other devices are prohibited. Devices with that can be shut off with a gas valve are OK.
If you see or smell smoke, call 911.
Thank you for your help!

RE See the comet.

I think that the comet might be visible from the big park if it's clear that is. It would be visible to the NW and probably earlier in the evening before it sets behind Porphyry. https://www.nasa.gov/feature/how-to-see-comet-neowise/ has a simple chart showing where the comet is in relationship to the Big Dipper

I got a great deal on some sheet sets, but ordered the wrong size. I'm hoping to reduce the impact of shipping them back, and wanted to offer them locally for what I paid.
(1) FULL Sheet set, purple/plum color. 4 piece set, microfiber polyester.
(1) FULL 4 piece sheet set. White. My Pillow, Giza Egyptian Cotton 400 thread count.

The My Pillow set apparently sells for around $100 or so.
Take both sets for $25.

It is with regret that we must post a retraction from our previous post... We realize “Moose-length“ should be hyphenated and we regret our error. Our apologies...

Message from the JT parks committee:

Do you love this old town? Are you feeling like "maybe I could do more" or "Gee whiz, all these volunteers are doing so much, but I'm not. How can I contribute?" or possibly "my kids sure have have had a good time playing at that awesome playground that exists (now how did that come to be?) here in the Elysian Fields Park".

Well trouble your minds no more. Tomorrow is your chance to help out.

The Parks Committee would like to ask for your help in cleaning up the weeds -primarily in the sandbox and area(s) around the playground at Elysian Park.

We need help redistributing the wood chips in the playground and general clean up of the whole park.

Please join us SATURDAY, July 18th, starting at 10:00 a.m. for a park clean up.



What to bring:

- MASK

- Gloves

- Rakes (small and/or large)

-Shovels (small and/or large)

- Other Weeding tools

- Sunhat

- Drinking Water

 

Moms, Dads, caretakers...anyone who happens to be visiting the park between now and next Sat. July 18th - please help by bringing some gloves with you on your visit and pulling the weeds around the playground.

 

It takes a village and your help is much appreciated!!

 

One of the reasons we need help is that the town's insurance company will be doing its annual site visit and inspection of town properties soon and one of the areas of concern is the playground and Elysian Park. We appreciate your involvement in helping us maintain our beautiful village! : )

If you can't make it, fear not! Other opportunities abound to help out. Remember, this town runs on volunteer power.

Come on out and be part of this lovely community we all benefit so much from!

Thanks Jese, I just got my Excel power bill, it indicated a negative number, like a credit with no explanation, figured they'd catch it soon enough.
How'd you find out about the credit ?

Something positive for the day: excel is giving everyone a $50 credit due to the excessive power outages we had last winter. :)

Here's a little food for thought if you're looking to make some sense or give some semblance of something to our current state of affairs.
Why we do what we do.

For viewing the comet. The comet has moved far enough north in the sky that it is above the horizon for all but a couple of hours. So it should be visible in the evening right after sunset till later in the night and again in the morning. The tail should be pointing towards the north.

Dave, I'll text you tomorrow.

Good morning QTer's,
Just a note to remind the folks in the area that the Mountain Ear, the long-running newspaper covering the Peak to Peak area, including our area, is still publishing quality journalism, and is able to cover any events or happenings that are newsworthy. It also comes in an online version for your convenience. If you have something that would be considered newsworthy, please feel free to drop a line or give a call.

Another image of NEOWISE from last night. Around 10:15ish. I found a spot on the road to CalWood that had a good NW view.

If the weather is clear this evening, I'm going to try somewhere along the peak-to-peak.
