Snake van Habanero's Saturday Matinee - 1:00-3:00 (12 12th St) - This week's flicker is a Burning Man celebration, literally. We're talking about that celebration of off-shore Celtic weirdness, "THE WICKER MAN". This one may make you cancel your trip to those apples of the British Isles and buy a slinky instead. It features Christopher Lee in his most creepy role (IMHO) and will definitely give you the willies. I hope to make you uncomfortable but always enjoy some company. Movie will be preceeded by an entertaining short subject. Think tinder and lightning. SvH

If you miss having the weather forecast showing on Google Calendar since the new redesign, you are not alone. There are many complaining on the Google Product Forums. Here’s a work around we found that a commenter posted to add a 10-day weather forecast to the web browser version of Google Calendar.

  1 Replace 80455 in the link with so your 5-digit zip code (if you're not in JT). https://ical.wunderground.com/auto/ical/80455.ics
  2 Copy the link
  3 On the left-hand side of the Google Calendar, below the month view, there's three vertical dots by the Add Calendar button - select them,
     and select From URL.
  4 Paste the link modified with your zip code. Click the grey Add Calendar button
  5 The new calendar will appear in the Other calendars section.
  6 Make sure the checkbox next to it is checked so that it appears below the day of the week of the calendar.
The 10 day forecast now appears on your caledar.
Thanks to Kevin Kelly's Cool Tools for this

It's been almost 2 years since we said goodbye to our dear Josh "Schwa" Evans and we still grieve yet we still celebrate him. Please join us on the anniversary of his departure at The Merc on Monday, March 4th from 6-8 p.m., where a beautiful portrait created by Jan Reed and framed by Jese Engwall will be unveiled, as well as his handmade instrument, "The Thing," all fixed up by Jaye Brotherton to be hung on a special hook made by Kyle Williams. Anyone who knew and loved Schwa is invited, as well as those who WOULD have become his friend had he not left us so soon (basically, that's everyone!). Bring instruments for the bluegrass pick 'cause he would've wanted it that way!

The bands have been chosen and as they spend the next 7 weeks creating an epic show, we begin our other quests for Band in a Hat #12...

CALLING ALL ARTISTS of any age to submit black & white artwork for BIAH flyers, posters, and the program OR colored artwork to show at the event! This is NOT a contest, rather it's a chance for our local artists to be actively involved and properly represented.

While we will gratefully accept any artistic creation, we are especially interested in designs that visually describe the "Band-In-A-Hat" concept of randomly chosen musicians working collaboratively while supporting the mission of JAM (Jamestown Area Artists and Musicians): "To foster a sense of community in the Jamestown area by encouraging adult and youth participation in and enjoyment of the Arts." The event motto of "Dare To Suck" can even be included, but is not necessary.

ADS!

Calling all local businesses and artists to place an AD in our black & white event program according to these reasonable prices:

$10 = business card = 2" x 3.5"
$20 = half page (either portrait or landscape orientation) = 3" x 6" (horizontal ad) or 2.5" x 7.5" (lengthwise ad)
$40 = full page = 6" x 7.5"

Program Size = 8.5" x 14" legal size paper folded in half as a booklet. Money collected from ads covers the program printing costs and anything extra benefits JAM (Jamestown Area Artists and Musicians), which always goes back to The Town in some way.

Any volunteers who could sell ad spots to local businesses specifically related to The Arts (music, art, theater, etc.) would be greatly appreciated! We also need 3 prize donations for the Hat Contest if you feel so inclined to ask!

Area businesses, musicians, and artists REPRESENT! The Merc - 4th of July benefit - JVFD/EMS - Yoga - Tai'Chi - Town of Jamestown - Save our Bears - Traveling Vet - Vox Feminista - massage - Hoshi Motors - bed & breakfast - musicians and upcoming shows - artists - pottery - computer repair - wifi - recording studios - jewelry - recycling - goofy friend ads - etc.

Art & Ad submissions will be gratefully accepted as soon as possible or by Sunday, March 24th through the jamforthearts@gmail.com or by calling (72o) 8o8-4815.

Please forward, share, and spread the word to other artists or advertisers who may be interested and THANKS for your support of The Arts!

Thanks for the request, Jackson, but we must stay on schedule so that bands have enough time to rehearse and create a great set for the show! The show date that we reserve for Town Hall is set after approval from The Town and The Merc, which graciously foregoes scheduling its own music on the night of BIAH. The Sign-Up process began 2 weeks ago through email and the sheet was posted at The Merc last week, all of which was advertised several times through email, QT Boards, and Facebook, as well as word of mouth. Please contact me at (72o) 8o8-4815 with any other questions or if you know someone who didn't get a chance to sign up due to being out of town.

Two inquiries:

(1) We are in search of a talented seamstress (or seamster?) to alter this dress. Purchased online and it's a little too small, may need to redesign dress if there isn't enough fabric to let out. Dress needed finished by Feb 29th and am hoping there is someone who can magically transform it into what I need.

(2) I am in search of a talented mentor. It's become apparent that the winds of fate are sweeping me toward some sort of future in restoring distressed properties. After doing a few hours of research I've come to the conclusion I need to take myself to school and I am searching for a teacher who knows those waters. How to buy at auction, securing financing, risks, paperwork, liability, etc... there are a lot of risks, but I think I can pull it off. I can pull most anything off.

for either inquiry, please call or text: 7 juan 9, fourhundred, 9626

Hi Nancy-Thanks! I don't tend to takes these personally, and thanks for opening the door to an opportunity to educate!:
There are a number of factors that go in to the decision to burn, whether it's piles or broadcast for forest health or backfire in the event of a wildland fire. The homeowner piles that escaped Wednesday were lit on the preceding Thursday during a snowstorm, typically a good time to burn. When we make the decision to burn we (Lefthand and generally speaking the USFS although their practices may be a little specifically different) look ahead at the weather for typically about a week, what we look for first and foremost are ventilation rates, predicted wind and forecast precipitation. There's a lot more that goes into this than putting the match to the piles or the ground!

Ventilation rates are very important for a successful burn, they indicate atmospheric stability and lift. Our goal when we burn is to affect people with health issues as little (if not at all) as possible. The Forest Service has a smoke monitoring station installed in Jamestown so they and we can monitor the effects of our burns, our goal is not to "pancake" the town in smoke. In order to do this, we coordinate and support each other with our burning days, so that we don't overwhelm the local atmosphere with smoke. To date, with all of the piles and area burned in the Ceran St Vrain/Glacier View Ranch area by Lefthand and the USFS have produced less of an impact on Jamestown and the surrounding environs than individual homeowners wood stoves.

Days with snow are great days for burning due to the atmospheric instabilities that accompany precipitation, and, the precipitation tends to keep the ground surrounding the piles wet which reduces the chance for escape. Our prescription REQUIRES 4-6" of continuous snow surrounding a pile(s) for ignition to start.

Wind is a key factor for successful burning. The wind is the primary carrier of smoke (and embers) so we're particular about which direction the wind is blowing (and a good reason to burn when it's actively snowing, usually lower to no wind effect). Counter-intuitively, we do need wind action for fuels consumption. The breeze can help the piles more fully consume, leaving less fuel behind post burn. When agencies like Lefthand and the USFS burn with breeze, we monitor the piles closely for ember-cast and escape, and we can stop the burns pretty quickly. That's not to say that we burn when it's blowing 70! We have identified thresholds and we stick to those for our go/no-go decision making. Likewise we perform test burns prior to full ignitions so that we have a good understanding of the type of fire behavior we can expect.

At then end of the day's operation we recheck the piles and secure them for the evening, using a variety of methods up to and including extinguishment. We return to the burn at 24, 48 and if needed 96 hours if the piles were not completely out (residual heat). Once we have confirmed the piles are out, we complete the burn with Boulder Dispatch and close out the incident.

Burning on these units will continue through the weekend and into next week as conditions allow. Fire managers constantly monitor conditions and forecasts, and staff the area as needed until burning is complete. Crews successfully burned 1,100 piles, or 35 acres so far this week.

 

From: Armstrong, Katherine R -FS
Sent: Friday, February 08, 2019 3:39 PM
Subject: Pile Burning resumes on the James Creek project

 

BOULDER, Colo. – Crews will resume pile burning operations on National Forest lands in Boulder and Gilpin counties starting the week of Feb. 11. Burning generally begins after 10 a.m. and ceases several hours before sunset. Burning will be focused in the following areas:

 

· James Creek Units M0501 M0503 150 acres of hand piles or approx. 4,500 piles; Potential smoke impacts: Ward, Bar K subdivision, Gold Lake, Jamestown Gold Hill, Rowena; General location: Gold Lake Rd 1 East of Peak to Peak Hwy. [30 acres remaining]

 

· James Creek Units M0502, M3202, H3101: 200 acres of hand piles or approx. 4,000 piles; Potential smoke impacts: Ward, Bar K subdivision Gold Lake, Jamestown Gold Hill, Rowena; General location: Peak to Peak Hwy 1 mile North of Ward Gold Lake and County Rd 100 and 103. [50 acres remaining]

 

· James Creek Unit H1501 M1603 M1401 M1603: 500 acres of hand piles or approx. 5,000 piles; Potential smoke impacts: Sky View Estates, Glacier View , Bar K subdivision Gold Lake, Jamestown; General location: 2 miles east of Peak to Peak on Overland Rd.

Conditions are evaluated each day to determine if ignition will take place. Precipitation, wind, temperature, fuel moisture and staffing all play a part in when and whether ignition occurs. Wind helps disperse smoke created during pile burning operations and snow helps keep the piles contained. Seeing flames and smoke, even after dark, is part of normal operations. This is one way that we can help reduce fuels on the landscape under the safest conditions.

Public and firefighter safety is always the number one priority in burning operations.

And for being ON IT with the fire that got a little out of bounds last week. I'm sure the FS people are aware of high winds today and won't put our community in danger. Please accept my apology because I didn't mean to direct my anxiety at you. High winds always make me nervous.

Snake van Habanero's Saturday Matinee - 1:00-3:00 (12 12th St.) Lately I've been immersed in quite a bit of Colorado History (and at my age feeling a little historical myself). This being so, I've been experiencing some twangs of nostalgia for the milieu of my personal past. So this week I'm screening a couple of documents from my youth on the Western Slope. The first is called "ZWICKER, AN AMERICAN COWBOY", a reminiscence depicting the ranch life of a pioneering family living in McCelmo Canyon at the base of Sleeping Ute Mountain. I attended high school with a couple of the boys of this family and the movie portrays a way of life that is almost gone. The second movie is a half hour portrait of artist and teacher Stanton Englehart called "STANTON". I was fortunate to have taken a couple of classes from him when I was attending Fort Lewis back in the Seventies and he had a profound effect on my way of thinking about this wounded world we live in. Anyways, I always enjoy some company if such things tickle your fancy.

Good morning! Yesterday's piles and ensuing fire were not the product of either the forest service or lefthand mitigation. They were on private property, and extinguished by lefthand fire with help from boulder mountain fire and the forest on standby. Thanks also to Jack K, Jim A and Greg who came by to assist! This well illustrates the need to monitor piles or anytime there is fire used for fuels reduction. Both lefthand and the forest did burn during the period prior to the wind event, and they carefully managed their burns and buttoned them up prior to the storm. I know that the property owner in question had a well prepared site for his burn, beyond that, with 50+mph winds, embers were lifted from the piles. The firefighters were able to stop the fire at 1 acre.

Please remember to call in your burns to dispatch and the fd even when they are permitted, monitor your piles, and button them up at the end. There aren't out until you can stick your hand everywhere in the burn scar.

We are grateful for our partnerships with the community, our neighboring agencies and the forest service, who are working tirelessly to do an excellent job of managing their lands. Wildland fire isn't a fire issue, it's about land management, the more we can do to mitigate prior to the incident, the lower the impact of the incident.

Kind of short notice. I'll be back in town in a few days. If anyone is interested I can baggie up some fresh aloe leaves. I could also do some smaller bare root starts if someone wants to start an aloe house plant.

I know they live here too but while hiking behind the Blue Jay Mine a mountain lion pounced on the edge of the trail. It was past the mine as the trail goes back into the woods. I was actually taking a picture of its track when it just appeared. I firmly told it to go. And after about 5-10 seconds it ran south, up the hill. Luckily me, my son and dog are all safe and sound. A week ago Shannon saw one as she was driving down the canyon.
Be careful.

Hello Women!

If you haven't received my work before here is what a client said about her session last week...

"After too much time neglecting self care, Courtney quickly got me feeling at peace again. Throughout the much needed 2 hour massage, Courtney guided me through breathing into the body work and massage. Her ability to pin point what the body needs is incredible. I left that session, like I do after every session with her, feeling emotionally and physically prepared to go back to day to day life." - J.

Feel free to call/ text me at 586.337.7058 or go onto http://www.divinewomanrising.com and book yourself in for a nourishing and balancing massage!

In Joy,
Courtney

Message from USFS...

BOULDER, Colo. – Crews will resume pile burning operations on National Forest lands in Boulder and Gilpin counties starting the week of Feb. 11. Burning generally begins after 10 a.m. and ceases several hours before sunset. Burning will be focused in the following areas:

· James Creek Units M0501 M0503 150 acres of hand piles or approx. 4,500 piles; Potential smoke impacts: Ward, Bar K subdivision, Gold Lake, Jamestown Gold Hill, Rowena; General location: Gold Lake Rd 1 East of Peak to Peak Hwy. [30 acres remaining]

· James Creek Units M0502, M3202, H3101: 200 acres of hand piles or approx. 4,000 piles; Potential smoke impacts: Ward, Bar K subdivision Gold Lake, Jamestown Gold Hill, Rowena; General location: Peak to Peak Hwy 1 mile North of Ward Gold Lake and County Rd 100 and 103. [50 acres remaining]

· James Creek Unit H1501 M1603 M1401 M1603: 500 acres of hand piles or approx. 5,000 piles; Potential smoke impacts: Sky View Estates, Glacier View , Bar K subdivision Gold Lake, Jamestown; General location: 2 miles east of Peak to Peak on Overland Rd.

Conditions are evaluated each day to determine if ignition will take place. Precipitation, wind, temperature, fuel moisture and staffing all play a part in when and whether ignition occurs. Wind helps disperse smoke created during pile burning operations and snow helps keep the piles contained. Seeing flames and smoke, even after dark, is part of normal operations. This is one way that we can help reduce fuels on the landscape under the safest conditions.

Public and firefighter safety is always the number one priority in burning operations.

Have a little pride!
No, no I’m not talking about civic pride - the kind where you’re doing something to make life a little more pleasant, and sanitary for the other people in your community that use the park. Not the civic pride that your parents and civic teachers talked about, "For a community to work everyone has to take responsibility." "We're all in this together and we have to look our for each other's interest as well as our own." Blah de blah de blah.
No, this is not that kind of pride. The pride I’m talking about is a different kind of pride. When you’re carrying a full poop bag to the trashcan in the park, there’s something proud about this contribution that you’re making that has nothing to do with wimpy civic pride. You might even especially feel this pride if it’s one of those stylish black poop bags. Like maybe you did a stint in Italy some time and you learned how stylish black casual is. (Never mind that those bags are compostable, and won’t last long. A lot of cool looking Italian materials seem to have that same problem). Those other bagless people you might encounter are bereft of this kind of experience – sadly they walk past the trash can with nothing to offer. But here you are, with a big bag, perhaps even an awesome sized bag (okay, okay it probably helps some to have a big dog). Sure it was your dog’s creation primarily, but somehow you’re sharing in it; maybe even showing off a bit – a slight swagger that you and your dog might share as you approach that trash can. A sense of satisfaction, not quite superiority, but certainly satisfaction, as you drop it into the trash can.
Yep, that’s the kind of pride that I’m hoping people might be able to enjoy.

Greetings Neighbors!

I was hoping to get some advice.. My Partner and I recently took over renting a property in Lefthand Canyon. I am a high-end handyman who works all over the front range and skilled in a wide range of trades. Our lease is up in May, and we love the area, the Merc, the mines, and the stories of the folks we have been lucky enough to share a beer with thus far. Jamestown is a special spot, and my partner and I are very reverent of that.

So what is my question? Is there anyone in these mountains that needs our help! We are simple people, don't require much space. We just need the mountains and the trees, clean air and water, and a community we can be a part of. We are at a crossroads.. Left the city and cannot go back now. This canyon has changed us and the thought of going back down into that brown air puts me in a panic. I look around and see so much that needs doing here, and I have the tools and skills to do (nearly) all of it.

Our plea: Does anyone have an old mining cabin, or a hunting cabin, or a guest house, or even a home that has just been unattended for awhile and is in need of a bit of TLC somewhere out there in these canyons? We will pay good rent, and I can lend my skills to rehabilitating a property, grounds, forests, or anything that just needs doing. Let me rebuild that bridge that was swept away in 2013. Let me replace that leaking roof, or that broken garage door, or that drafty old window.. A growing list of my skills is here: www.noblethomasllc.com

We are pursuing any avenue, any chance that could lead to our finding a home in these hills. We are honest hard working young Americans, and if anything I've said rings your bell please reach out. We are very excited at the possibility of working with you or someone you know. And if you're not much into phones and such, we try to make it to the Merc every Saturday for a Rainbow Benedict and some breakfast tacos.

Best,
Noble & Andrea

Sweet! Bluegrass pick at the Merc one Monday a month - what goes around comes right back around! Here's a fun JT factoid you might not know - the original members of Yonder Mountain String Band - Jeff Austin, Dave Johnston and I think it was Ben Kauffman - came to the Merc thinking the show was going to be a jam, but it was actually a band playing, so Nolan Farmer told them if they formed a band he'd book them to come back and play the Merc. So they did! Been a long time since then... :) Even if you don't play, it's always fun to listen to a good bluegrass pick!

Yay! SATURDAY is gonna be loads of fun!

BONES JUGS is gonna be a hoot of a band.

Saturday Dinner will be Caprese Salad (fresh Mozzarella, tomato, basil, yum) Smoked Pork Ribs, fried potatoes and green salad.

Come on down!!

Bones Jugs has been shutting down frowns and bringing out smiles since 2013. With quirky songwriting, blazing fast xylophone, and all sorts of noise makers, they conjure up an eclectic acoustic sound. Fans of Spike Jones, The Memphis Jug Band, Bob Wills, and Scott Joplin, Bones Jugs creates something new and unique, but deeply rooted in generations of American music. Whether playing for a dancing crowd in a large room, attentive listeners in a small club, or acoustic on a street corner, Bones Jugs are a frenzy of frivolity and a marvel of merriment.

Snake van Habanero's Saturday Matinee - this week only!, 3:00-5:00 (12 12th St.) - This time I thot I'd do something a little different, rather than showing my usual smorgasbord of weird comedies, motorsickle mayhem, cowboy existentialism, chicken guts and jello, or musical psycho-dramas, I'm going to try a little social consciousness voodoo. Oak has kindly loaned me a copy of " V FOR VINDICTIVE", a performance based on some of the ideas of Derrick Jensen, whose book, "The Culture of Make Believe", I really like. If cultural analysis is yer cup of poison, swing on by. I always enjoy some company and I think Oak will be here to explain more about the production of this video.

Please do not put dog poop bags into the blue sand barrels around town. These are not trash cans. The purpose of the sand barrels is to provide sand when the roads are icy. Many of the barrels are on private roads and are maintained by us, not the county. Thanks!

Jamestown Gateway Markers – A background…

About two years ago the town received a grant to build a couple of gateway markers as part of the CDBG-DR Traffic Calming project. Gateway markers (also called gateway monuments) are roadside installments that serve a traffic calming function in two ways: by making drivers more aware that they are entering a populated area, and by giving drivers a visual sense that a road is narrower than it appears.

The town held a contest for local artists to design the markers. Then, residents voted on the designs. Over 100 votes from residents were tallied. The winning design belonged to Craig Brown. His drawings were sent to the artist studio of Kristen & Mark DeSantis. Kristin and Mark built the markers with a steel “I” beam structure and a ¼” aluminum sheet for the artwork. The aluminum is textured with grinders and the paint is applied by hand.

Congratulations to Craig Brown and thanks to Kristen & Mark for making his design come to life. The town hopes the markers are a friendly welcome and send off to visitors and residents for years to come.

Hello Jamestown area neighbors!

We will be continuing our wintertime Neighbor to Neighbor Tuesday evening Educational Series.

On Tuesday February 26th, we will have an educational Scientific talk given by our extremely talented Bar K Neighbor, Ray Buland.

Because he has such a vast collection of fascinating lectures already prepared, we all thought it would be fun to have the interested community pick the topic. The options are listed below. Let us know by email, QT or in person at the Merc. We’ll announce the winner and topic of Ray’s Science talk end of next week.
Email address: jamestownmercantilecafe@gmail.com

The choices are:
1. Sudden (Dinosaur) Death: about the meteor impact that killed off the dinosaurs.

2. Tsunamis: with some cool animations.

3. Floods of Lava: about flood basalts--trust me that it's way better than it sounds.

4. Volcanos: a talk about more conventional volcanos (the biggest known eruption happened in Colorado near Creed)

5. Rocky Mountains: how the Rockies came to be

It's that time of year again and JAM is trying to gauge interest for BAND IN A HAT #12!!!

Basically, musicians sign up for ONE instrument of choice, which are then placed into instrument hats. JAM draws one name from each hat to form a randomly-picked band. Each band then has about 6 weeks to create a half-hour set for the event, which usually occurs beginning to middle of April.

Categories are DRUM KIT, BASS, STRINGS, WINDS, VOCALS, and OTHER. ALL ages, styles, levels, and locations are encouraged to join, including artists, actors, and dancers!

It's a chance for less experienced musicians to shine while all musicians are challenged to play with new people! We've done it 11 times successfully and a majority of participants expressed that they had a great time. This year, we hope to get as many BIAH alumni to join again (that is, musicians who have been in the event previously)!

IF YOU WOULD JOIN BIAH #12 this year, please email jamforthearts@gmail.com BY NEXT FRIDAY, February 1st and if there is enough interest, we will move forward with the event! If not, we can skip a year and try another time.

DARE TO SUCK! But no one ever does...

From Jerry:
Please, Ms. Dorner, post your messages elsewhere, or get your own Twitter account. First you violate one of the more important rules of this bulletin board. Then, after being politely reminded of the rules, you said you didn't mean to offend, then proceeded to offend. Then, in your next message, you say you won't post political messages again. In that same posting, after saying you're sorry, you turn that message to politics. About two hours later you leave politics out of your message and turn, instead, to insults.

If I were an undecided voter I would read your messages and think to myself that these anti-Trump liberals don't know what they are doing and can't control themselves. They seem to be irrational. I can't vote to put them in office.

Please realize you are hurting your cause and, at best, not improving your friendships.

Feeling crabby? Irritable? Tired of a few people? Tired of the state of the world? Tired of your neighbor's barking dog and wish you could put it in a dog-a-pult? Wish your neighbors would finally move to Brazil? Wish your boss would take a permanent leave of absence? Kids pissing you off? Parents? Significant other? The President?

Want to feel peaceful? Think it takes a miracle? Sometimes it does. Consider making a study of A Course in Miracles before you die. It could change your life.

Jessica you were asked politely by Mark, prefaced with a "please" and ending with a "thank you", to avoid politics on this QT, yet you persist. Not everyone buys into the disinformation aka propaganda that's so widely spread these days. Including yours. Whether you mean to offend or not, you do. Seems to me you posted some inflammatory comment about parents not long ago, some sort of picture or poster, possibly that has been removed. That offended me, for sure. Cease and desist.

The eclipse has started! It won't be fully blocked until 10:12, but for now it looks something like this. Enjoy!
