Hey all, sorry for the Spam-a-thon. For some reason the Sign-in requirement was reversed and I missed the last days of BS. It's turned on again now so to post you'll have to sign in and won't be able to reply to an email to post. Not big price to pay for eliminating the spam though. Enjoy the oasis that is Ward in the summertime! David

You may have heard; Rocky Mountain Ecodharma Retreat Center has bought Hazel's Rangeview Ranch. If you are close by you might have gotten a notice from Boulder County about our application to continue using it as a guest lodge retreat. We welcome letters of support from the community.

I am happy to answer any questions you have about who and what we are, and you are also welcome to come to our open house on Sunday July 16, 10-4 to find out more.

We are glad to be part of the mountain community. We plan on remodeling the historic lodge, relying on as much local talent as possible, as well as for cooking and cleaning. If you have skills and want to be on our list, let me know.

Good Morning! I just processed a flat of strawberries and froze them but there are several more flats in the food box. They're mostly still good (actually delicious) and organic, and you just have to cut off the tops, put them in a bag or container and stick them in the freezer. Makes great frozen smoothies, or thawed for yogurt or hot cereal. They will go over today if they're not used. Please come and get them.

Howdy neighbors to the south!

Anyone need work? There is a new retreat center opening up above the Bar K called Rocky Mountain Eco Dharma Retreat Center and they are in the process of purchasing the southern parcel of the Christian Science Center's land. They plan to be open in full effect next year, and in the meantime they are wanting to work with as many locals as possible. The scope of their project starts them with some demo and hauling, to interior rebuild and exterior reinforcements of the very old building on the property. They are a small non profit whose vision is to keep things minimal so that folks who rent the center for retreats pay a minimum. For the next step of the project, I'm helping them connect with the community tradespeople and local cooks.

For next year, they want to amass a list of "approved cooks" for their clients to use if they choose not to cook for themselves. These cooks would not be an employee. I am working with them to figure out the easiest way to facilitate this list. If you are interested, Please contact me at the below address.

Here is a list of what they are looking for:

Wage to be worked out between you and them:
General Labor
Dump Runs w Pickup Truck
Crew to clear and buck up standing and down dead trees, and clear some brush

Bids needed:
General Carpentry
Windows and Doors

If you are interested, please send me your contact info and trade and I'll put together a list for them. They are eager to start work as soon as possible.

Hopefully this will eliminate it. I'll try switching it back in a week or so and see if we're off the roller coaster. Sorry folks!

Dear residents,
I was wondering if anyone knew anything about an ordinance, that I was unfamiliar with, that prohibits dirt bike riding in the town of Ward. As everyone knows, my son is a dirt bike owner. It is my belief that he is one of the more respectful and conscientious dirt bike owners. The reason I state this is because someone is creating barricades on the paths around Ward especially, those leading to the ballfield. I want to know who gave this person permission to put up these blockades on these paths. Property owners, the town of Ward? These barricades create a hazard for both walkers and dirt bike riders ( mostly if and when they get buried with snow and become not visible). Also it is not an effective blockade for dirt bikes, because those riders just make a new path, often because they have no choice but to make a quick decision, destroying virgin grounds and rendering the attempted palisade ineffective. Believe me when I say that I understand someone not enjoying the sound and or effects of a dirt bike. I live with two motor heads, I get it. But who is anyone to say otherwise unless there's a law preventing it. So I encourage whoever is passively aggressively building these to attend a meeting and try to make changes to the laws, if that's what they desire.
Also, I have noticed barricades making it difficult for the residents that live way out on the Switzerland Trail to access their properties. What is all this about?
Thank you for your time, Kristen
