Change worth more than you think

By Kurtis Kelly Special to the Trail-Gazette

o help inspire area residents to think in new and exciting ways about the opportunities that await with just a few simple financial changes in their lives, the Estes Valley Library is host-

ing a special workshop titled The Change in Your Pocket on Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. Financial Programs Consultant Marsha Yelick will lead attendees on a lighthearted but informative journey on the ways to get on track with positive new habits in the area of money man-

agement. It all starts with the change in your pocket, Yelick notes. The free session will examine all the reasons people dont do a better job of handling money (no personal confessions necessary). Participants will understand some psychological tricks

that humans play on themselves (and some simple ways to correct those errors). Yelick will list the ten most important tasks for the New Year, and then allow time for attendees to actually do a few of the tasks within the time allotted. The change in your pocket could be worth much

more than you think. Yelick says. Space is limited, so participants should register at or call 970-586-8116, then join the librarys Common Cents Counts Financial Consultant, Marsha Yelick, as she shows some easy paths to financial stability and happiness.

Sandra Wong Trio to perform Sunday

By Lanty McCartney Special to the Trail-Gazette

Concert moved to MacGregor Room in Stanley

andra Wong, Charlie Parker Mertens, and Greg Tanner Harris come together in dynamic combinations of nyckelharpa/fiddle, bass and vibraphone/piano/Ghanaian gyil/world hand percussion to explore music from all corners of the globe, including their own compositions. Reaching into their individual roots of classical, African, bluegrass, jazz, Scandinavian, Middle-Eastern, old-time American music and more, their arrangements honor each tradition while moving into new unchartered territory. Sandra, Charlie and Greg create a musical playground for everyone (both musicians and listeners) to explore, play, stretch, and grow in a joyful space. Multi-Instrumentalist Greg Tanner Harris leads the Greg Harris Vibe Quintet, and is a member of bluegrass legend Pete Wernicks Flexigrass; hip-hop/jazz/soul group Future Jazz Project; New World Citizen Band; 9th & Lincoln Orchestra; and SuperCollider. Among his work as a studio musician, he has released five albums. Greg has a great interest in the West African Xylophone called the Gyil (pronounced JEE-lee), the national instrument of the Lobi and Dagara people of Ghana, Burkina Faso and Cte dIvoire, West Africa. He also plays an assortment of Frame Drums from around the world, exploring the Bodhran of Ireland and the Doyra of Uzbekistan. He received an M.M. in Music Performance, Percussion at the University of Colorado, Boulder and a Music Education and Music Perfor-

Sandra Wong mance Bachelor of Arts degree from Fort Lewis College. Sandra Wong began studying the violin at age seven with the intention of becoming a concert violinist. This remained her sole focus for 15 years until she discovered fiddling. Since then, Sandras focus with her music has shifted from being an isolated musician striving for technical perfection, to a focus on connecting other people and cultures through music as a way to build community and express our common humanity. Opening this door with an exploration of Irish, old-time and Bluegrass music, her folk music journey has moved her into her current livelihood of teaching, performing, recording and collaborating with other musicians from a diverse range of world music genres. In 1999, Sandra opened another door when she discovered a 14th century Swedish folk instrument called the nyckelharpa and fell in love. This is a 16 stringed, keyed instrument played with a bow. Sandra toured nationally and internationally as a solo artist and in collaboration with various musicians. Recently, she released two collaborative albums; Frolic and Romp in 2009 and Sunny Side Up in 2010. Sandra has recorded on a number of her contemporaries projects. Her discography is available upon request. As an active member of 1%

For the Planet, a percentage of all of Sandras CD sales and proceeds from concerts support responsible projects working to create sustainability on our planet Earth. Charles Parker Mertens, aka Likemind aka Murda Mertens, is an international performer, multi -instrumen-

talist, producer, and music educator residing in Denver, Colorado. He began his musical training at the age of 10, first on cello, and later adopted the bass guitar. During his senior year he won the Colorado All-state Jazz Bassist

o I experienced a classic, documented work injury last week. An injury that I swore I was protected from, because I own a health club, I workout regularly and I know all the right things to do. I do weights that always include core strengthening for my low back. Guess what? I strained my back while moving a patient, due to an odd position that I found myself being in. Helping someone else, I strained my low back, a classic injury. Before anyone gets up in arms about this topic, let me quickly say that I am totally recovered and Im O.K. Yes, my back is better and for that I do give credit to my consistent strength training routine. The strain that I experienced had me sore the day after, enough to the point that reaching down to pick up something from the floor was almost impossible. Knowing what I know about how muscles react to a new stress, I knew that itd only take a day or two for this strained feeling to sub-

n 1915 there were 21.5 million domestic horses in the U.S.A. Today there are about 9.2 million. Im not sure of the breakdown of how many did what back in 1915, but Id bet most of them were work horses of some sort, with not many of them used for recreation. The breakdown as of 2013, according to the United States Equine Federation, shows that approximately 840,000 were racehorses, show horses were listed at around 2,700,00, those used for recreation accounted for about 3,900,00, with those designated as other, approximately 1,700,00. Im not sure

The list included grease, shoeing, depreciation of harness for the horses and tires for the car. Stabling the horse and garaging the car were not included. The horse averaged 30 miles per day, the car, 76 miles a day. In the last few years we have paid as high as $15 for a bale of hay that weighed about 60 pounds. When I was a kid, my dad sold hay for $20 per ton. The wire tied bales weighed very close to a hundred pounds a bale. Gasoline, as everyone is aware, runs over $3 per gallon. I havent bought axle grease, a gallon of oil, or straw, for years, so I dont know what those prices are.

About that same time as the car ad, breechingless light weight harness was being sold for $17.59 up to $47, Medium work harness for $20 up to $59.90, without collars, through Sears and Roebuck catalogue. I didnt nd a price for collars. I read sometime back that a group of drivers made it across the U.S.A. in 28 hours and 50 minutes.
