he Larimer County Community Development Division’s Rural Team is beginning a rural area outreach efforttoask residents about theirlong term rural area vision. This outreach consists of two phases: Phase I - Gathering Information with a focus on
community meetings and online input opportunities; and Phase II- Evaluation, consisting of follow-up reporting and identifying next steps. The Open House style community meetings will be held August through November throughout Larimer County in various rural locations such as Red Feather Lakes, Livermore,
Big Thompson Canyon, Wellington, Waverly/Buckeye, Drake/Glen Haven, and the Fort Collins/Loveland rural areas. A complete list can be found on the website at www.larimer.org/planning/ planning/areavision. The big question concerns long term vision according to Larimer County Community
Development Director Terry Gilbert, “The big picture question is ‘What’s your rural area vision and what needs to be improved or changed?’ We’re also trying to learn more about what residents want easy access to with regards to conveniences such as: groceries, gas stations, banking, and repair services.
We also want to know what types of support service/businesses farmers and ranchers would like to see located closer to their operations and is there an ability co-locate these support service/businesses near or on their operations? Lastly, what do residents like or dislike about the services provided by the County?”

ovie matinee screenings of the “Longmire” made-for-television series continue on Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 3 p.m. at the Estes Valley Library. The event is held as a prelude to this year’s library benefit dinner with guest Craig Johnson, whose mystery novels inspired the title character Walt Longmire. Actor Robert Taylor portrays Longmire, a Wyoming sheriff doggedly solving crimes in “Big Sky” country. The screenings are free and open to the public. Set against the backdrop of the open range of Absaroka County, the first of Wednesday’s episodes is titled “A Damn Shame”. After a family barn goes down in flames with the owner and his beloved award-
Robert Taylor as Walt Longmire. winning horses inside, Sheriff Longmire investigates and believes the incident is more than a planned suicide. The second episode in Wednesday’s matinee is titled “The Cancer”. Longmire finds himself asking his associate (played by Lou Diamond Phillips) for help when a murder investigation takes him into a world where the Mexican drug cartel is growing local marijuana— and everyone wants in on the action. With each episode at approximately 45 minutes, Wednesday’s matinee event will form a 90-minute program. Subsequent episodes will be screened each Wednesday afternoon through the month. Complimentary snacks and refreshments will be on hand for Wednesday’s movie matinee. The library’s annual benefit dinner with Johnson will take place Sunday evening, Sept. 29 at the Aspen Lodge. Organized by the Library Foundation, more details on this event will be announced in the coming weeks. For more information, contact the library at (970) 5868116 or visit estesvalleylibrary.org

D’Amico featured in new library art exhibit
By Kurtis Kelly Special to the Trail-Gazette
he Estes Valley Library is hosting a special exhibit featuring the works of Estes Park area painter Dan D’Amico throughout the month of August. The exhibit may be viewed anytime during the normal open hours of the library’s second floor. “I feel that one of the most important functions of an artist is to share the beauty of world around him,” said D’Amico, among whose honors is a prestigious Award of Excellence from the Roger Tory Peterson Institute. “If I can encourage someone to appreciate the play of light on dry autumn grasses, or the texture of an old log fence or lichen covered rock, I feel I may have touched their soul.” The library exhibit features a strong representation
“Something Stirred” subject: cougar (oil on panel) of D’Amico’s diverse and stunning wildlife paintings. Included are such subjects as birds, elk, bears, bison, horses, and river otters. Dr. Douglas Lewis, curator of sculpture and decorative arts at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, once complimented D’Amico’s painting “The Waiting Game” as one of the finest wildlife paintings he’d ever seen. “A viewer can’t experience the inspirational moment,” D’Amico notes, “but can only relate to paintings by filtering them through their own experiences. I try to create a mood by evoking a feeling or memory. I’m not only interested in how an animal or scene looks, I want to convey how it feels to transcend the surface appearance and go beyond to the essence of the experience.” In addition to the August library exhibit, D’Amico’s paintings are on exhibit at the Aspen and Evergreen Gallery in downtown Estes Park. Throughout the year, the Estes Valley Library’s second floor art exhibits are offered to help celebrate the work of local and regional artists. To learn more about upcoming events, visit the kibrary’s website at estesvalleylibrary.org or call (970) 586-8116. “Ready When You Are” subject: dog with canoe (oil on linen)
