Due to red flag warnings, now is a good time to take time to review the JVFDs emergency preparedness guidelines of what to do in the event of a fire and what to have in your grab bag. The ER plan is specific, based on actual events of trial and error, and hours of discussions of what worked and what didn’t. Thank you to Nancy and Steve Edelstein for putting it together! See the link above www.jvfd-ems.org It’s always good to be prepared beforehand. Cheers!

Hi Jeanne, there are no active fires nearby at the moment. One thing we all can do is sign up for emergency notifications from Boulder County: https://member.everbridge.net/453003085612231/login
What's great about the notification system is you can get it on cell phone via text message and email, so even if you aren't home, don't have a home phone for reverse 911, or your cell phone is not associated with the address that you live, as long as you give the correct information for where your reside when you sign up you'll get notifications for emergencies in that area. Folks on the QT have been great about posting hazards and emergencies as they arise, the difficulty for us on the responding agencies is usually as an event is unfolding we are at the event and unable to communicate on the QT.

On the Curie Springs topic:

I think there is some misspelling going on that might confuse things! The house was owned by Jere Freel who inherited it from his parents. There were four kids including a son but i thought he lived in Houston. Jere's second wife was Ann (Krohn) Freel and she had a son, Tracy. Ann and Jere were very close friends of Harry and Edith Patterson who were one of the original owners of Texarado. I fact they may have had something to do with introducing them but i am not totally sure about that. Ann and Jere were at Curie Springs often through out the 80s but as they got older they came up less and less. Jere's kids used to come sometimes but most of the time the house sat empty from the 90s on. Jere passed away in 2011 at age 99. Ann died some years later. I kind of think the house passed to Ann and then to her son Tracy. Eric Harms would know as he bought is from whomever owned it following Jere's death.

Ann and Jere were great fun! Ann had a fabulous apartment in New Orleans on a second floor corner overlooking the epicenter of all things Mardi Gras. It is the one you often seen in a typical photo of the French Quarter with the ivy ironwork and hanging ferns. They hosted many guests there. When Ann sold the apartment it promptly became a restaurant. Edith, Harry, Ann and Jere took many trips together across the country and into Canada in an RV.

I will never forget getting to our house at 59 Mesa next door to Jan Reed and BFK and seeing Ann's black Cadillac parked out front! i guess it had been in the garage for many years and survived the flood.

Oak, I've had a bit of luck spraying my flowers with a solution of peppermint essential oil and water every evening. The final solution was to create a cage of wire for each plant. Don't forget a "lid". We had a couple of snakes one year. No rodent in sight! I'm not sure my culprits were chipmunks though.

Oak ~ I have heard that moth balls and/or cayenne pepper deters critters from eating plants.
Can't speak to their effectiveness but might be worth a try. And where did all these chipmunks
come from anyway? I don't recall there ever being so many of these critters running around up here as
there are now.

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! And now the invasion of the "The Chipmunks"

The James Creek Watershed Initiative has a septic rebate program where residents of Jamestown can receive a $50 rebate for septic pumping. If you would like this rebate, you will need to contact me via email to get on the list. Then send me a copy of your receipt via email and I will get you the rebate. If you have pumped your septic over the last 6 months you are still qualified to get this rebate. Keeping your septic pumped regularly helps prevent ground and surface water pollution. Folks in Jamestown value their natural environment and keeping James Creek clean. Contact Colleen Williams @colleen@jimtown.org if you are interested in this rebate.

Hi all-
Here's a quick photo of Comet NEOWISE this morning near 36 and Nelson Road looking Northeast around 4:30 AM (it rises at 3:30 or so).
This comet has gotten bright quickly, so who knows what it will do as it approaches the sun and transitions to the evening sky.
This site can help locate it (put in Boulder as your location), but if you go out an hour-ish before sunrise you can't miss it near the horizon:

Hello, friends and families of the Jamestown School. Those trees in the kids park are dying. They need LOVE, in the form of lots more WATER!
Please can some parent or child create a watering schedule and stick to it this hot hot summer?
Many buckets have been lost down the creek, so please be sure to weight them with rocks if you leave them out in the wind; there are others left in the big box.
The trees thank you for your care!
Hopefully by next year their roots will have reached the creek level and they won't need so much attention,
but today, they are calling out in dry voices.....HelP!

Eric Harms, the town website has links with Springdale history in case you haven’t seen it. One is an article by Silvia Patten. The other is Mamie Langs Journal in which Mamie writes about her covered wagon trip to Jamestown with a stop over at Springdale. One of the old town families gave me a printed copy of the journal years ago which the family had transcribed from the original. Unfortunately, I don’t recall their names. But I scanned the pages and that’s what’s on the website.

When we came in 1974 Jerry Friel owned the property and his grandmother had research the history of the area. But I have no idea where that would’ve gone I have lost the frills. I will keep looking..

Hi neighbors!

A few days back, we noticed some folks sharing info about the Curie Spring. The spring is on our place (at the old Springdale townsite, about 2 miles downstream) and is indeed still flowing year-round! A few years ago, we had the water tested at the State Lab and it did indeed come back with some impressive levels of radioactivity, due to the presence of radium. The water was indeed consumed and even distributed as a cure-all for multiple ailments as late as the 1960s. It's a fascinating bit of local history, and I'm happy to share other info and history that we've been able to dig up over the years. Likewise, if anyone has stories, old photos, memories, etc. of the spring or Springdale and would like to share, we'd love that too! For either, just ping me at EricOHarms at gmail dot com. Cheers!

This morning at 4:30 on Nelson Rd, I saw comet Neowise 2020/F3.
The tail was visible to the naked eye, and although it's magnitude 2, the dawn
makes it appear less bright. It's near the horizon, only 5 degrees or so, in the NE in Auriga.
Even the most meager pair of binoculars enhance the view - it really seemed to change central brightness and tail shape
in real time. I didn't see the split tail, maybe tomorrow.
Venus is prominent, as were the moon and Jupiter in the west.
I've not seen a comet this good since Hale Bopp and Hyakutake in 96 and 97,
and it promises to be on that scale - but predicting comets is less accurate than predicting the stock market.
It will be there for the next couple mornings, and on the 15th it will be in the NW evening sky, visible from
Peak to Peak and Brainard. https://theskylive.com/c2020f3-info

Most importantly, here is Jamestown’s Kate Farmer singing you all the National Anthem, for the 19th year in a row.

HAPPY INTERDEPENDENCE DAY! I remember my first 4th of July in Jimtown like it was yesterday. It was in 1975 or 76 and I was still living in Lafayette at the time. I had only recently met the Jugband folks, Clete Weins, Johnny Buzzard, the Kihm Klan, Tom Luce, Robby Quint, and Bianca Storlazzi and had joined that musical fracas with high enthusiasm. I was so excited about hanging with the Jugheads that I showed up in town about five in the morning and started celebrating with copious flagons of cerveza that by the time the lollygaggers rolled out of bed I was already thirteen sheets to the wind and had to quaff a gallon of java to regain my senses. From that time it was hot damn bliss. That's when I began to grok Jimtown Time. Ah, the fun we had that day. May we never lose that feeling. SvH

Last Minute Special Treat for anyone checking out the QT on a Thursday Afternoon!

Because we aren’t having a Fourth of July Celebration, we thought it might be nice to record Katie Farmer singing the National Anthem beforehand and posting it here for everyone in town to be able to play in their homes or yards Saturday at noon as the tradition goes.

We are so grateful that she’ll be able to sing it this afternoon in the little park for us to record.
If you want to catch the performance in person, please don’t come too close, as Katie is taking medication making her especially vulnerable currently.

BUT you can come to ANDERSON HILL and watch her sing from a distance.
(Thanks for the idea Annamaria)
We’ll have the PA with speakers.
Tell your friends!

FREE Curtains: You ever order something on the Amazon and they ship the wrong product and it ain't worth the hassle of returning said product, any who...
2 packs, 2 panels each 37"x84" total of 4 panels, enuff for 2 windows or whatever wherever one might use such items for. Heck, one could use them make a flag, a dress or some britches.

Don't laugh, they are Orange-ish, kinda orange sherbet like a Dreamsicle popsicle, depending on the lighting and your level of color perception. And the bonus, Faux Silk, yeah, you read that right, too fancy for me :O)

I'll leave them under my carport at 165 West Mesa (that's the direction the sun sets) house on the corner, past the school or I can drop them off, free local delivery to the lucky one that claims them first here on the Que-Tee :O)

I woke up that morning with my head below an open window about 20 ft. from the road being sprayed.I appreciate that a warning was posted beforehand (and please continue that)so I know next year to be out of town at the time.

Hello!
For everyone asking, the product used is the same product that is used every year.
From the County Transportation Dept:
“The product we use is called Integriblend, from a company called GMCO Corporation. It is a 80% magnesium chloride and 20% complex sugars blend. You can look it up at gmcocorp.com. It is what we have been using for years”.

There you have it folks. Have a great night all!!

Molasses in the dust control, in bear country, in neighborhoods and towns, sounds like our tax dollars and the geniuses in charge are on the ball.

Seems par for the course given the current state of the human condition. I hope they're using a product with the consistency of molasses instead.

That county link I posted has contact info if anyone feels like getting to the bottom of WTF they are actually spraying for a dust control.

In case you’re wondering if there is anything you can do to be involved in election activity, there are two things I’m doing.
Please contact me if interested - Wendys29@mac.com

1) I will be at the Jamestown Post Office with a petition to get Fair Tax Colorado on the November ballot. This petition is to permit a gradual decrease in taxes on the 95%, and slight tax increases on the 5% of folks earning more than $250k (5% increase in income over $250k, and 7% increase in income over $500k). I won’t elaborate on the QT but please visit www.fairtaxcolorado.org to learn about this important movement. Check out especially the impact on education in fall 2020 (if it doesn’t pass). I’ll be with my mask and table this Friday morning (9-11); next Monday afternoon (3-5), and next Wednesday lunch 1-3. Petitions need to be sent back end of July!

2) I’m part of an in-your-own home post card writing drive to encourage the middle third of Democrats to vote (not the ones who always vote, not the ones who never vote). The organizer of this small group has got very interesting speakers political and non-political to speak in 20-min sections while we write post cards at our own kitchen tables 3 speakers per session). It’s been stimulating and quite fun. Let me know if you want to join and I’ll send you a link. It meets by Zoom every Saturday, noon-2pm. Months of July-August-September, and maybe October, only. You don’t have to commit to every Saturday!

Jeanne - you're the boss, right? You also intentionally misspell people's names. It's mewmew, not mu mu. I doubt pitchblende was ever used as road base around here. Your counterpunches are stifling. It's totally fair and reasonable to question what chemicals are being used to control dust. Albeit benign, the question was raised and now we know (thanks Hollis). And according to GI Joe, knowing is half the battle. Don't discourage the curious.

To you, mu mu, you need to consider what is in the dust that blows up from our dirt streets. Consider uranium was one of the products once considered mined around here. And consider what was used in the mills that were in the middle of town to extract gold .Then think about how much molasses has impacted your life.🤫
 I think you’ll feel differently

I spoke with one of the workmen laying down the dust mitigation. I asked what he was using. Turns out that this year (at least in the Bar-K and on Overland Rd) they are using Mag Chloride mixed with molasses! That was the sweet-smelling odor, which is already dissipated. Last year, they used something far more unappealing that made the roads smell terrible for weeks. I neglected to ask what that was.

For what’s it worth, I switched over to compressed wood bricks a couple of years ago, after an injury. Menards and Tractor Supply carry them, Menards year round, Tractor Supply seasonally. Both have sales.They are kiln dried sawdust, burn clean and long, easy to store & transport but must stay dry. Very little creosote build up too. We are up in the Bar K and our wood stove is our sole heat source.

Packy's cat Miss Kitty is looking for a home. Miss Kitty is about 12 years old and super mellow. She is quite sweet and gentle and would probably be okay with other pets if a slow introduction was done.

If you can help by giving Miss Kitty a retirement home, or know someone who might be interested- please drop me an email at mountainvetATgmail

INSIDE SCOOP Re: CENSUS
Hi, all! I just noticed you haven't all filled out questionnaires, or your tract would be dark blue instead of light orange. As an insider working for the Census, I can tell you three things that might be useful:
1) if you received a questionnaire dropped at your address (as all of you should have who have PO boxes) and either mail it or go online with the code on the front of the questionnaire, you will not get an in-person visit.
2) if you just go online (2020census.gov) without the code, you may receive a quick follow-up in person just to verify your data
3) if you didn't respond to the Census at all, in August your tax dollars will be used to come knock on doors, Covid or no, and get the data in person in a slightly tedious script-based series of questions. You are required by law to complete the Census, and so the agency will send people out to your home over and over until they get the data. If you would rather not have this experience, I strongly suggest you do it online or by mail before the middle of July.

Working here on the Western Slope, I have had enumerators who drove 7 hours to get one questionnaire, often having to use 4WD to cross streams only to arrive at locked gates. Please just do it the easy way and save yourself and the poor enumerator a bunch of grief! Good things come from this count. Your data is sealed for 72 years, and is only used in aggregate for those 72 years. Fear not!

PS I miss JT and all of you, and the Merc, and all the stories I know I'm missing.

People all over are slacking on the mask. The virus is still spreading, even outdoors, it's an airborne thing. The more it spreads and mutates the harder for an effective vaccine to made.

Initially the lack of information and ignorance helped to spread the virus, now we have more information but ignorance prevails.

Smart people doing stupid things.

Personal request: can people wear masks in Town Square and most especially in line for pizza? It’s for our mutual protection, and especially for old farts like me. Plus I’d hate to see COVID spread through our community, as it has in so many communities, family gatherings, etc. With appreciation. W&T

Paving is not a good option at this point, and I don't want to use large river rock/riprap because of bicycles/motorcycles. What is the best thing to use? Crusher fine gravel or something like that?

Glass patio table, square, white, tall, with 4 matching aluminium chairs.
There's still a very nice counter height dining table (36") legs are off, but are not rickety, unlike mine.
Hmmm ... a solid core door workbench, a tripod sprinkler, a gripping foldable workmate, mirrors, doodads, and that
blue inflatable exercise ball.

BEAR ALERT !

OUR Little BEAR "Bubba" (redish/brown 100lbs +) was sighted IN TOWN between 2-3PM TODAY! He's exploring yards and homes!

We need to "Haze" this guy or he's doomed. Post on the QT AND The Bear Tracker if you can. I work @ home and if you call me I will attempt to locate him and give him some negative reinforcement. (No animals will be harmed in the making this film ;)

My experience is that you don't get much of a window before they vanish. SOOO,if observed; calling as soon as you see them and before they bolt, is helpful.

Time to step up JT! This Little BEAR knows he will find something to eat or he would not be risking daylight raids.

Thanks Alex and David for your accurate posts on the Bear Tracker!

Critter Cams:

Cuddeback makes some very user-friendly models with features ranging from low-fi to video capture and it's what I would recommend. They're often quite reasonably priced. Get IR (infra-red) flash enabled cameras for nighttime use (Wildlife cannot see IR light and isn't blinded by it). Cameras with bright evening flash can capture excellent nighttime photos, but they can drive your neighbor nuts. Fancy models allow for downloading pictures photos from outer space, but simple models are often less hassle. A simple SD card or upload to thumb drive keeps it easy.

USFS uses Molson, but the product is inconsistent. I think they are crap.
I solely use Reconyx because although pricey, they are bombproof and reliable. You get what you pay for, and if you intend to get joy out of the thing for at least 5yrs, consider it.

Install game cameras no more than 20" above ground for best photos, and be familiar with the flash and sensor range. Weather (mostly cold) can make cameras sluggish. Rechargeable NiMH batteries are great and die at a different rate than expensive Lithiums. Go rechargeable.

There's a few off-brands I've messed with but I always go back to Reconyx.

Got a callout for a unsafe driver - not sure where they live. Drive a newish Kia Telluride, license plate BMF-J46. I noticed them coming in hot and heavy right before the Lefthand Turnoff where they went to pass on a double yellow (and I don't drive slow). They decided to do this about a hundred feet from the blind righthand turn, so I had to slam on my brakes. Because Karma is a @!#$@# they got stuck at both construction traffic spots on Lee Hill/old Stage, so here is a nice shot of their car/license plate. Going in excess of 50-60mph. The worst thing about this is I noticed a kid seat with a child in it at the traffic stops, so wow.
