Wow, that's a healthy FAT bear! We are very much in the height of bear season. Keep it clean and locked and your problems will be less.
ALSO ~ Please post your sightings on the Bear Tracker at the top of this page. The information helps us track problem bears/people/places.
Out of blind respect for all living things, help us Save Our Bears, People and Places from harms way.

We ate dinner at The Greenbriar and it was fabulous! Went back for a Sunday brunch and it was pretty awful. My son spit out the oyster; said it was bad. The rest of the food was uninspired and kept running out and you would have to wait and wait for fresh food. We complained to the manager and he could not have cared less.

Hello JT and friends -
I would like to let everyone know that I am open for business. I’ve been in the electrical industry for over 30 years and have a Colorado Master Electrician license. I’ve worked on a few houses here in JT so I also have references upon request. For JT and close by: I’ve reduced my rate for those of us who live up here and find it difficult to get contractors to come up the mountain. Call me at 847-346-8260 or email at theraceblogger@comcast.net

Thanks, love you guys

J.T. and All,

Another viable option for controlling fruit production, other than cutting down the tree/shrub, is the application of a plant growth regulator such as ethephon. Mechanism of action is that it is converted to ethylene in the plant and causes early abcission of fruit, before it sets. Folks can enjoy the blossoms in the spring and then the blossoms will drop with no subsequent fruit production

Important note, according to Penn State it is non toxic to honey bees...

Attached below is an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about the ecology and management of our Boulder County forests!

As mountain residents, we think you may be interested in this series of events on wildlife fire. Of special interest to you might be the workshop on Wednesday, September 26 at CU, and the field trip to Boulder County open space forests on Saturday, September 29.

The CU-Boulder Center for Sustainable Landscapes and Communities invites you to take part in Preparing Today’s Boulder Forests for Tomorrow's Wildfires the week of Sept 22-29. Join us for a Saturday field trip and/or an evening workshop co-hosted by Boulder City and County Open Space departments plus CU and CSU faculty and staff.
Wildfires are inevitable in the forests of the open space lands, canyons and mountains where we live and recreate. What do we all need to know about living in a wildfire-prone ecosystem? The purpose of these events is to introduce concerned citizens to land managers and scientists for community discussions regarding the unique challenges of living next to our forested lands.
To register for one, two, or all three of our events follow the link below:
We look forward to seeing you there!

Hi, potters,

I'm selling my big Cress kiln. It's 33 inches tall, (plus 8 inch legs), and 28 inches in diameter. It comes with 9 shelves, supports, kiln wash, and loads of stilts, and cones for bisque firing glazes like Stroke & Coat, but can be used for anything by substituting the cones. Requires a 220 connection. Make an offer--it's in my back yard in Boulder!

We have Mountain High Wifi. As far as I know, it hasn't been down once. It works great. Even when the power is off. Although I don't think they provide service in Jamestown. I've lived in various mountain areas over the years, and the best internet is really site specific. I lived in two different houses in the same area in Coal Creek and Nedernet worked okay in one house and not at all in the other house. I've never had a satellite provider but I have never heard good things about them. They are a last option in my opinion. A direct wired link will probably help. But sometimes...

It's a shame that "good internet" has had such bad luck. We've been with Century link all along and they continuously improve their service, and we keep a landline for emergencies like when the internet/power are down. As long as the back-up batteries are running in the house we'll have internet on a power outage, and as long as the batteries in the CL switch panel are up you'll have dial service for a landline even if the internet/power are out. The phone needs to be a wired phone, not a wireless. The double edged sword of giving up a landline for VOIP, also E-911 does not work with VOIP, 911 works, but it the system can't identify the caller's address, instead the caller needs to be able to speak/tell the dispatcher the incident address.

Hi Southern Jen, we’ve had good luck with CenturyLink. It’s possible to “bond” 2 DSL lines together which we do, and that’s more than enough to stream 4K movies and shows (speeds at the house are about 37mb down and 1.9mb up). It rarely goes down - power outage is generally when it dies and sometimes not even then as the DSL router and WiFi gear is on battery backup.

i think ive tried all the internet options besides centurylink at this point so i can tell you my experience

mountain high wifi is really bad, they cut out all the time and goes down completely every evening when people actually want to use it. the guy running it seemed unable to do anything besides blame me for complaining too much. during the brief periods when it is up if you try to use the net at all by watching youtube or whatever it starts throttling you really hard after a couple minutes, then slows down to dialup speeds

rise broadband was much better, but they only serve a few places up high around town I think. they offer better speeds, but everything still slows to a crawl every night when people actually want to use it. i havent tried them in a few years, they may have expanded into the area more by now

nedernet has been the best option for me, they don't go down every night and i can watch netflix and youtube at 720p all day. they have a cap and charge you lots if you go over, so you have to keep a close eye on how much you use though, which is annoying

hughesnet is the satellite provider that advertises good speeds, but you never ever get those speeds, and it goes up and down more often than any other provider. they also locked me into a contract so i couldnt cancel for a year even though the speeds were less than 1/50th of what they advertise

centurylink was worse than all of the above, but i only used them 10 years ago in longmont so i cant say how bad they are up here

honestly i would not buy a house in the area if you cant get rise or nedernet, unless you want to live offline most of the time

Hi everybody...I'm looking for a little perspective on wifi in the mountains. What are reasonable expectations for internet in a mountian town in 2018? I'm particularly curious to see what feedback I might could get from CenturyLink customers. Is it reasonable in 2018 to be able to stream a show on netflix or youtube or whatever, even if it is a popular streaming time, like in the evenings when lots of people are doing so? Or are you all just patient that the streaming stops constantly, like sometimes every few seconds when you are trying to watch a show? Is patience and understadning that wifi isn't the greatest in the mountains required here, or are there townfolks out there that get wifi reliably without any issues? Is it an issue of paying more for higher speeds? Does anyone have any insight as to whether or not the age of the router would affect streaming speed? Thanks, I really appreciate your thoughts!

Hey Burt-that's because he was riding on ball bearings! When they stripe the roads they use glass beads as the reflective material, and they are like ball bearings. I've reached out to some of the cycling boards to give them a heads' up.

This morning we talked to a couple of bicyclists at the Merc about slippery new paint stripes and new wet asphalt.

Later headed down canyon I helped a motorcyclist pick his bike up out of the guard rail. He said when he got on the center line it was like riding on ball bearings.

I believe that soon there will be new white side striping. If anyone has good ways to get a warning reminder out to the cycling community please do.

Help keep our emergency responders bored. Thx

Saturday, September 22nd

We wanted to reach out to Jamestown residents for participation in this event. This a great opportunity to give back and help out with maintenance of our adjoining Open Space lands!

In 2006, Parks & Open space performed forest thinning/wildfire mitigation on the 23 acre Blue Jay Mine property near Jamestown. The project dramatically reduced the density of trees and created several openings where no trees remained. After 12 years of going undisturbed, these openings are now full of ponderosa pine and mountain mahogany regeneration. Volunteers are needed to help maintain these openings by clearing the existing vegetation. Work will included using loppers and handsaws to cut ponderosa pine and mountain mahogany. Cut material will then be scattered in the surrounding areas.
Volunteers will meet in Longmont at the Parks & Open Space building and be shuttled to the worksite in county vehicles. More details will be provided upon registration.

If you are a Jamestown resident and would like to help out, please register at https://discover.bouldercountyopenspace.org/ and feel free to meet us at Blue Jay. No cars please, parking does not exist at this property.

I still feel the loss of Joey every day. And I know life has continued to throw us curve balls and to shine its light on us, just as it normally would.

Loving, Active Dog Luke Skywalker, 6.5 Yrs, 95 Pounds, Looking For A New Permanent Home On Land and Not In A City; Nearby Here or Somewhere In Colorado, Western Slope, Or even Out of State.

Hello old neighbors. I was living up in the Bar-K just a little while back. I have come to a point in my life where I am ready for the next chapter. My son has grown up and my business in Boulder no longer provides me with the tremendous level of love, joy, and fulfillment that it once did. I have made the choice to begin traveling the world again, making a shift into humanitarian photography and discovering what is in my heart that I want to pour my energies into as I experience other cultures, other peoples, and other ways of life. I have partnered with someone to continue running my headshot business and come October 2nd of this year, I am setting off from Boulder with my partner Courtney first for Hawaii and then for India. What comes next is unknown. Even should I return to the States next year for any amount of time, I won’t be in a position to care for a dog, as I plan to spend the majority of my time outside the country and traveling for work and life. I’m looking for an Awesome Human to become his new person.

Luke is a tremendously loving and loyal dog who is very active and needs a lot of space to run around regularly. He is a mixed breed of Dogo Argentino, shephered, and terrier, among other things. He is also neutered. I am seeking a person who is well accustomed to tuning in to an animal’s emotional needs and who lives an active lifestyle with a lot of time spent in the outdoors. This person does not live inside a city, but rather lives on a considerable amount of land, likely with other dogs and possibly animals (a ranch or a farm) where Luke can plug in and become ‘one of the tribe.’ Luke is emotionally sensitive and experiences separation anxiety when left alone. Luke’s new owner will be at home most of the time and Luke will be able to become a part of his or her routine, right along with the other dogs/animals that live on the property. In Luke’s own words below…

“My name is Luke and I am a pretty big (100 pounds), super active, very playful, loving [and cuddly] guy. I am six-and-a-half years old. I will run with you, hike with you, run while you bike, backpack, or whatever outside! I'll also curl up quietly on the couch and watch movies with you once we're done! Oh yeah, I'm also really loyal and I climb doggie 5.9.

I'm interested in living with an active, responsible, feeling human(s) who has experience living with big active dogs, who really appreciates loving companionship and is willing to share their affections [with me] freely. I need a place with some room, ideally a ranch or a farm outside of town limits, or a house up in the mountains, or even the right place on the outskirts of a town, as long as it has plenty of space to run around outside. I really don't like to be left alone for very long and so would appreciate a household where the humans either work from home or can take me with them to work and other places that they go!

I love to play with other dogs and am totally good to go to doggy day care, although I don't do overnights there- I just get too anxious- and in general I’m looking for a place where my doggy day care will be whilst hanging out with you and your other dogs/animals. I do best in the wilds outdoors and off-leash, and I love multi-day trips into the backcountry. I am very gentle and mellow when lying around the house and naturally, I love beef bones.

If this sounds like something you may be interested in and able to accommodate- or if you know of a friend who you feel may be a good fit for my new home, please respond to this post and message my Dad. His name is Merrick. Thanks for reading and looking forward to meeting you- WOOF!!!” -Luke

*The intention of this post is to find an awesome new home for Luke where he will be as happy or happier than he has been living with me. That is the possibility that I am creating for him. If you might be that new home then please do get in touch! If you have an opinion about what I'm doing, you're welcome to it, of course. I would simply ask that you keep it to yourself and not post it here because the purpose of this post is to find Luke an awesome new home, not to take a survey about how people feel about it.

Thank you for reading and please give me a call or email me for more information and to meet Luke. (970) 275-1109 / merrickonthego@gmail.com. Once again, serious inquiries only please, Thanks very much!

Oak, thanks for your reply. The bird that flew into our house was small but not tiny. We opened the front door and after a short time it flew out. It didn't fly low so we couldn't have caught it with a towel, but that's an interesting idea.

Yeah, and I thought the same thing as Steve about visibility but then I checked the Post Office and the growth is behind the stop sign, it's pretty visible to traffic coming from the west. I think the problem is the vegetation growing between the ears...

Very interesting ideas Jeff. But I fear that stripping, while sure to slow traffic, might lead people to drive off of the rode.

I agree about the stop signs. They could also pay attention to the one speed limit sign in town that is very easily seen. It's on lower main, right hand side, just before Carolyn's place.

Good morning folks. Yesterday we had a surprise visitor. Just before dinner, Jerry called out, "Look up! There's a bird flying around!" It was a small dark colored bird. It had obviously flown up our staircase because that was the only way it could have been on the 2nd floor. It probably entered earlier in the day when we had the downstairs door open for a little while. Finally, it flew out the upstairs door which we opened for him to get out. I was wondering, did any of you ever have a bird fly into our home?

A couple of years ago there was citizen driven project to develop plans for improving the resilience of Jamestown and the surrounding areas. The work was divided into several working groups. One of them focused on mobility. The mobility citizen working group did extensive research and public engagement on traffic calming and evaluated all known strategies for encouraging safe driving through town. There are numerous strategies for slowing traffic flow. Speed bumps have been found to be marginally effective. Drivers tend to slow down to cross them and then speed up once they are past. The acceleration after a speed bump adds extra noise to residents. More effective strategies focus on reducing the perceived and real width of a road and encouraging a sense of personal relationship through a long term, well executed public ed process. Stripping, flower pots, flexible hit posts and curbs all narrow the perceived and real width of the road and consistently slow drivers down. Temporary speed signs that measure and display the speed a driver is moving work temporarily. The norm is 1-3 months of slower traffic, similar to the staying power of an effective public ed campaign. Effective public ed campaigns encourage a sense of ownership and personal relationship, change their messaging and are remounted several times each year. They work and drivers are more conscientious when they feel that they care about the people they are driving past. The County Transportation Department has staff who are experts in traffic calming and are available to share ideas. There are also a a lot of consultants who study what works in similar traffic situations around the country. The mobility working groups consulted both county and consultants in developing their recommendations (listed below).


PS: Below are the recommendations the citizen working group developed developed for improving the safety of driving through town along with specific findings on traffic calming:

To encourage and maintain safe travel for pedestrians on CR94 through Jamestown.
a. Make a prioritized list of traffic calming devices to be installed through town in coordination with the County transportation planners, in consultation of volunteer traffic planners and in alignment with the maintenance IGA. (see attached project option worksheet 7)
b. Install safe lighting that corresponds with a “night sky” community setting. (see attached project option worksheet 8)
c. Mount a “we are one community “ public education campaign. (see attached project option worksheet 9)

Goal: To provide and maintain safe travel for pedestrians on the CR94 corridor.
Strategy (if applicable): a. Make a prioritized list of traffic calming devices to choose from that will be installed through town in coordination with the County transportation planners, in consultation with volunteer traffic planners and in alignment with the maintenance IGA.

Option: 7. Make available a variety of traffic calming devices to present to the town residents and residents of areas surrounding Jamestown and get input on what the majority would approve of. These would also be presented to the Town Board for approval and input.
i. Consider a crosswalk from the town hall to small park, from the Merc to the town square park, at the stop sign next to the Post Office, across to Lower Main intersection from the Fire Hall, and at Ward St.
ii. Install big, reflective road signs announcing speed reduction coming into town from east and west. Maybe a speed limit sign west of Kate and Skip’s slowing to 25MPH and 20 MPH 200’ before Ann Brieler’s.
iii. Install a mid-road entrance divider in either end of town to make it clear that driver's are leaving an open road and entering town.
iv. Reduce the designated travel lane portion of the pavement to 11’ width with striping, traffic calming planters, and/or removable soft hit posts.
v. Install removable soft hit posts, cat eye reflectors and/or sub surface lighting to reduce the width of the road
vi. Remove traffic bumps and dips (they are noisy for the people that live adjacent to them, are not supported by snow plows, make road maintenance harder and are less effective than other measures.
vii. Develop appropriate, changeable traffic calming signage.

Visibility issues of signs currently in place:
There are some tree limbs,up and down Main Street,seriously blocking views of well established signs. If these limbs were cut down by the town or homeowners,then the drivers unfamiliar with speed limits in our residential area would likely be more informed and aware.

I would post an image but just pay attention driving up and down and you will easily see what I mean and I don’t want to put ‘blame’ on anyone. The trees just need a trim!

Why would I sell such a fantastic device your ask? I have a pretty complex phone setup in my house with multiple lines and phone systems.

Pedestrian crosswalks are abused by the very people they are intended to help. Drivers tend to ignore pedestrians. There's a ped crossing right here at Hoshi. I see the results every day.

An Optical Illusion ped crossing is relatively inexpensive, 3 colors of paint. Worth a try.

Plastic and rubber speed bumps are relatively inexpensive and can be relocated as needs dictate.

Speed bumps could be very effective. My concern is that they were designed right so that they didn't damage vehicles exhaust and suspension systems. You can paint the bumps to help drivers see them. Proper signage could help.
HollisPerson was signed in when posted

Speed bumps are needed at each end of town, Taylors old place and just up the hill past/west of Ward St. and at the post office stop sign and at the east end stop sign. One is needed between the fire hall and the Merc. One is needed between the post office and Ward Street. Speed bumps need to cover both lanes so they can't be by-passed.

They make moveable plastic and heavy duty rubber models that can be staked to the asphalt. They also make snow plow tolerant speed bumps.

Three cars were stopped at the post office stop sign this morning and someone on a bicycle blew right past them. I had the right-a-way at Andersen to turn right, had I not seen said dumb nuts on the bicycle, said dumb nuts would have been in the hospital or worse right now.

My recollection was that the survey concluded that people didn't want anything more than 'signs'. However, in the cold light of people speeding through town on our new paving I wonder whether that would be the consensus of people living on the county road, walking their dogs, playing with their kids in the park or relaxing outside the Merc Cafe. Something very unfortunate is going to happen and my vote is firmly for some action that will make people passing through town Slow the F--- Down!

Hi, neighbors!

This post is meant as a question and a sounding board; please participate in any way you feel called to.

I've been living up here on Mesa for a couple of years now, and I've decided to begin offering some of my passions and skills to the community that has welcome me Home.

I am currently 38 years old, and began a serious dedication to martial arts and wellness at the age of 8.
I now hold numerous teaching, coaching, and personal training certifications, as well as having more than a decade of experience as a Licensed Massage Therapist with advanced cert's in Myofascial Release, Structural Bodywork, Thai Yoga Massage, and Sports Rehabilitation. I've worked for myself, for Chiropractors, for MD's, and as a Physical Therapist's Assistant in my professional history.

In this lifelong pursuit, nothing I've found has demonstrated such clear, consistent benefit as T'ai Ch'i. Not even close, really.
I have almost 31 years of practice in numerous systems, including Brazilian Jujutsu, Japanese Jujutsu, Judo, Freestyle Wrestling, Shotokan Karate, Muay Thai/Muay Boran, Filipino Kali/Escrima, Shaolin 5 Ancestors, Choi Li Fut Kung Fu, and Hop Gar Kuen. But for the last 15 years, my true love has been Taiji.

In my opinion, there is no system in existence which offers a better integrated way to cultivate Self-Defense and Self-Liberation skills at the same time.

All this is to say I intend to begin offering a weekly, free-or-donation-class to the community here in Jamestown.

Who is interested?

What days would people like to meet and train?

Yes, I've met Vic, he's a lovely man and there is no conflict of interest whatsoever between us. More Taiji is good for everyone in town. :)

Thanks for reading!

Good Morning Jamestowners,

I -like Hollis- could be suspected of being the phantom (sheeeesh! Still?!?!) “mesa oldtimer” but am not. And I -like Hollis- am still trying to digest that anonymous message. A couple of thoughts though: the times I have witnessed verbal racism (coming -yes- from someone who could be perhaps described as a “good old boy”) have had little association with the Merc. In fact I have observed the atmosphere at the merc, even or especially while in the company of the “boys”, to have become increasingly tolerant and kind over the years....fewer misogonistic jokes, less malicious gossip (is there any other kind?) and so forth. Let’s keep evolving in that direction, ya?

Hi, all!
Someone, I can't remember who, said if I were ever selling my 1998 Honda Accord EX with manual transmission, they'd be interested. Well, I AM selling it. It's got a couple of dents, but has been well-treated, lightly driven (162,454 miles) and serviced at Hoshi. I'm asking $1,800. Here's the posting on CL if you want to see all the pics. https://denver.craigslist.org/cto/d/1998-h...ual/6684081999.html

PS I don't know why the car is upside down...Last time I checked it was right side up in front of the house! :-)

Some people are bending over backwards to find a way to excuse those making a ton of noise with unregistered vehicles while flicking cigarette butts over the signs that say no vehicles. As long as they're white and a good old boy, everyone just wants to make up some new rules for these special people. Meanwhile the few black/latino boys who dare even drive through town regularly get the sheriff called on them. God help them if they ever tried to use the park, much less wheel around in it, I imagine the SWAT team would be deployed.

It makes my blood boil after hearing one of these good old boys use the word "nigger" in the merc a few weeks ago. I've had enough of this shit, and I will be the first person to start calling the police on these privileged few for BREAKING THE LAW while the rest of you hem and haw. The ridiculous double standards in this town need to end.

Boy! I witnessed humanity at it's finest this morning, made the mistake of leaving for work a little later than usual. Right in the mist of heavy construction equipment on Main St. in Jamestown, people aggressively maneuvering and passing in a very congested work zone with little regard or an apparent inability to fathom the nature of the dangers to themselves and the workers trying to do their jobs. What I don't think a lot of people realize is operating heavy equipment in a confined space is tedious at best. For the construction workers the visibility, noise and trying to focus on their work and their co-workers safety while a hand full of what I'd say were relatively intelligent people doing idiotic things leaves me befuddled.

hey our cat PIE has gone missing (did not come home for dinner last night or breakie this morning).
Anyone see him?
And yes, now I regret ever letting him out, but he was a vocal negotiator about his outside time.

And, FWIW, there was a short revival of the Bluejay bike loop, complete with jump, which was dismantled at the FS's request due to a complaint from town. For the MtB daredevils, there is a great playpark on the 286 Rd near the 5 fingers. If you know, you know.

Hi all-
the Towners were riding Saturday as well, and I had an opportunity to catch up with them. Jason was respectful when I asked him to stop the kids from using Lower main as a drag strip. He assured me he had handled it immediately, and I did not observe any further activity with the ATV on lower main. If someone knows of an area close by I'm sure they would be amenable. The FS roads in the sacrifice zone are still closed to motorized vehicles post flood. The closest I can think of is Bunce School Rd near Allenspark....

Rob, everyone here has something with a motor on it. Some registered properly some not and I haven't heard many complaints. We do have less crowded conditions so maybe Jamestown needs an area for people to safely ride without bothering anyone else or messing with the toxic waste.
As a kid in NJ it was almost impossible to ride a dirt bike without being labeled a criminal. I was that kid in that family who every neighbor pointed a finger at. Right there, him -he's the long-haired kid with the smelly noisy Yamaha doing wheelies, disrespectfully breaking the rules. I get it. I just wanted to ride and sometimes was afraid to. So yes Rob, I am now amenable to people riding their bikes and their horses on my properties. The sound has never ever bothered me or prevented me from doing something else. Many years ago Max, Henry and Hayden built a small dirt track with a jump on one of our lots and it is still here so I welcome anyone who wants to ride on it to come up. A neighbor who is now deceased did once call the Sheriff to complain about the boys scaring his humming birds away. The deputy's response was awesome: "This is why we live in the mountains, right? Keep your kid riding and as long as you don't go past 9 pm you are good to go" I know this doesn't apply to the park issue but maybe it helps in another way. Hopefully you find a good solution. My solution in 1989 was to move here.
Ah, Deja Vu.

PS-no disrespect to anyone mentioned in any of my posts, just a topic I feel compelled to write about.

Here we go...
1. The Brotherton kid didn't ride in the park and as a matter of fact, I don't believe the bike was ever out of 2nd gear.
2. No, riding is not inherently a crime- It can however be pretty disrespectful depending on the time and place. Karen was absolutely disrespected yesterday.
 This has always been an issue with Jason- ripping up and down main st. even with a tiny kid sitting in front of him- and yes I put an end to it. When you're in your home trying to have conversation, reading, eating a meal whatever, it isn't much fun when a dirt bike or quad is ripping 40 feet from your ears, it used to be worse when the fence was still up at Matt n Julies as the sound would bounce back, but you all are right- I'm the you know what though.....Right??
3. I learned to ride at a place we called Sandtrack. It was a couple hundred acres of open creek bed and adjacent land. No homes and certainly no established parks. If you're interested it is the southwest quadrant of Woodmen Valley road and I25 on the north end of Colorado Springs- Completely developed now, but in the 60's 70's and eighties it was wide open. Find some historical arial photos and the trails would be pretty clear.
4. Sounds like Sal is amenable to this up on the Bar K- Maybe even his yard as I don't believe it is posted as a town park with a "No motorized vehicles" sign, and- Lots of nice dirt roads. I can't speak for his neighbors they may feel differently.
I have a niece and she and her husband have always taken their kiddos to nat'l forest and BLM land where this is legal- of course your toys have to be properly licensed and registered and that may present certain hurdles
Sal- I have not lost my optimism for humanity as you asked, but, I have lost patience with quite a few residents that have to haul ass every time they're on these dirt roads as they are tight and dusty- there are even little kids occasionally too- Observing the way folks drive I don't think it is a question of if but a question of when. I've lived in JT fro over twenty years- people used to drive at a reasonable pace- the posted speed limit is 10 mph. Most of my neighbors that have been here for more than a few years on lower main, not all I'm sure, feel the same way but I just happen to be the mouth in the crowd. Things don't change if nobody says anything or takes action. Reading what people have to say or preach is often time much different than the way they behave- period, all you have to do is sit and watch. Actions generally speak louder than words.

This concludes my rant- Please forgive any typos I've made and, if I have offended anyone- tough noogies...

That top cap is akin to concrete, be nice to have some topsoil on it. It would be kind of difficult to destroy it.

When an area is declared a public space (i.e. park), there must be rules. The question is, how are the rules enforced?
kent weeksPerson was signed in when posted
02:49 PM MT(US)
I think we should set up some rules for motorized use, say no atvs or dirt bikes. I wouldn't mind bringing my rv down there for a few days and hang by the creek. Put a limit on how long you could stay. That isn't going to destroy any cap.Special events could have an exemption. Just thinking out loud.

In the park discussion I think it is important to keep in mind the recent history of the park. Going back about 15 years ago the Feds and State approached the town and said they wanted to declare the park and therefore the town, a Super Fund site. Some of us didn't think that was either necessary nor would be good for the town, especially property values. There ensued a multi-year negation and evaluation effort culminating in an agreement that essentially says the town will take responsibility for maintaining the park as a wild space in exchange for not being declared a Super Fund site. Following that there was an additional effort to improve the situation by building up the topsoil cap. The town is has the responsibility (in perpetuity) to be responsible stewards of the land and not do anything to expose the soil and material that lies beneath the topmost layer and not to far below. It is totally safe as is but various uses use could change that quickly, including but not limited to motorized vehicles.

As far as I am aware the town does not have ordinances about what can be done in the park except perhaps for overtly digging it up for such things as a structure. But other activities can clearly create undesirable disruptions to the fragile top layer which can result in extremely serious consequences. In the end, it comes down to a community choice between "people do what they want and risk the town being revisited and declared a Super Fund site" or, "use common sense and protect that environment".

Beth, to your question, it would be an enormous mistake to remove the signs, leading to consequences that we don't even want to contemplate.

Well to be perfectly honest, in my humble opinion, of course
without offending anyone who thinks differently from my
point of view, but also by looking into this matter in a
different perspective and without being condemning of one's
views and by trying to make it objectified, and by
considering each and every one's valid opinion, I honestly
believe that I completely forgot what I was going to say.

I feel I must weigh in here even though I sleep in Longmont now. Jamestown is one of the only places left where a child can STILL be a child and I hope that can continue here! The Towners have been OUTstanding contributing members of this commUNITY for over 10 years, mostly volunteering their time toward this town's and JVFD's success!!! While I agree that there should be no motorized vehicles on the Big Park simply because the sign says so, I also appreciate these parents teaching their kids how to safely ride, which eventually will lead to safe driving on our canyon roads AND possibly needing to ride these types of vehicles in an emergency. Soon, you will see Elise being taught in this way and on that ATV, but we will make sure we aren't riding on Elysian Park. Just curious, Rob G., how and where did you learn to ride a motorcycle?
