Blue Santa Program
Again Underway
In order to make sure that the holidays
are merry for all of Estes Park’s citizens,
the Estes Park Police Department will
once again be taking both referrals and
donations for its Blue Santa program.
This program is facilitated by the Estes
Park Police Auxiliary and its purpose is to
provide holiday food, specialty items, and
cheer to our community. In order to do so,
boxes have been placed at the Municipal

Timberline Medical Center, Estes Park
Medical Center, Bank of Colorado,
YMCA of the Rockies, Country Super

such as lotions or soaps into these boxes.
They will be picked up by Auxiliary
Officers and sorted at the police depart-
The Christmas gifts to these families are
provided by local churches, organizations,
families, club members or businesses who
“adopt” a family and purchase gifts for the
children. With funds donated to Bright
Christmas we purchase food for a
Christmas dinner, shoes if requested plus
extra staples to be given to these families.
If you are a family who would like our
help, please contact Crossroads Ministry
at 577-0610 and they will get a sign-up
form to you. Our deadline is November
for these forms to be returned in order
to have time to purchase the gifts. We are

Sister Cities
Meeting Next Week
The Estes Park Sister Cities Association
will hold its annual General Meeting on
Wednesday, November 28, 2007 at the
Estes Park Museum, at 7 p.m. The public
is invited.
The agenda will include a discussion of
all ongoing programs and projects with
our Sister City - Monteverde, Costa Rica.
In February 2004, the Mayors of Estes
Park and Monteverde signed an agreement
establishing a Sister City relationship
between the two communities. The agree-
ment calls for cooperation and exchanges
in culture, education, governance and
To date there have been a number of pro-
grams, exchanges and visits between citi-
zens of the two communities. This sum-
mer at the Sister Cities International
Convention, the Estes Park Sister cities
program received the award for Best
Overall Sister Cities Program in a commu-
nity of 25,000 or less in population.
Representatives from Estes Park and from
Costa Rica were there to receive the
award. Over 600 communities in the U.S.
have sister cities in another country.
There are 20 communities in Colorado
with a sister cities program. The program
for Wednesday, November 28 is about
some of the exciting programs of other
communities. The speaker for the event
will be Sue Bolton from the Longmont
Sister Cities group. She will be accompa-
nied by a teenage and another adult from
their group.
The meeting is free and there will be
dessert served. Please come and see how
you can become involved!
Rotary Foundation
Seeks Funding
Recipients For Grants
Charitable, educational, and philanthropic
organizations in the Estes Valley have until
December 31
to apply for grants from the
Rotary Club of Estes Park Foundation.
Last year, the Foundation gave out $33,000
in scholarships and $22,350 in grants to 21
community organizations.
“This is a perfect opportunity for an organi-
zation that benefits the Estes Park area to
receive money – money for a good cause, with
just a little bit of effort,” said James Frank,
Scholarship/Grants Coordinator for the
Foundation. “All that’s necessary is to send in
a request with paperwork, following the guide-
lines. Organizations should pick up one of the
grant guides and follow the instructions care-
fully.” Grant guides can be picked up at
Hobert Office Services at 1140A Manford
Ave. or call James Frank at 586-3418.
The deadline for applying is December 31
“There are usually around 25 organizations
that apply for the grants each year,” said
Frank. “We always look forward to giving
money to community organizations that make
a difference.”
The Foundation’s mission since its creation
in 1977 remains the same: “To help foster the
general well-being of our community and to
provide education opportunities that prepare
students to meet the needs of the workplace.”
“The Rotary motto is Service Above Self,”
explained Frank. “The organizations receiving
awards are living this idea, providing services
in our community to those in need. That’s
why we help.”
As a partner-in-community, the Foundation
supports a broad range of charitable endeavors
which include health and human service, cul-
ture and the arts, and other community activi-
ties. In order to make significant contributions
and maintain continuity of support in its pre-
ferred areas of giving, the Foundation typical-
ly does not contribute to capital campaigns.
Additionally, it does not contribute to endow-
ments, development funds, fundraising events,
operating expenses, or foundations. Nor does
it make direct donations to individuals.
The Foundation receives contributions and in
turn contributes only to qualified charitable
non-profit organizations in the community.
These organizations extend services and bene-
fits to a wide variety of programs, and provide
aid to our diverse local population. Donations
are made to organizations and institutions only
after careful study and review by the founda-
tion or its representatives.
All inquiries, including requests for funding
during the period July 1, 2007 to
June 30, 2008 should be addressed to:
Scholarship/Grants Coordinator
Rotary Club of Estes Park Foundation
P.O. Box 1854
Estes Park, CO 80517
Requests for funding by the Rotary Club of
Estes Park Foundation must be made in writ-
ing and should include the following:
A description of the structure, purpose, his-
tory and program of the organization.
A summary of the need for support and how
such support will be used. Recipients’ activi-
ties must fall within the purposes contained in
the Foundation’s organizational charter.
Financial data on the organization, such as
an audit or budget, sources of income, break-
down of expenditure by program, administra-
tion of funds or fund raising.
If received by the applicant, a copy of the
Internal Revenue Service ruling dated after
1969 classifying the organization as tax
exempt under section (501) (c)(3) and exempt
from taxation under 501 of the Internal
Revenue Code of 1954 (or the corresponding
provisions of any future United States
Internal Revenue Law).
Financial support of donors by category (indi-
vidual or corporate), including the names of
corporate or foundation contributors.
Non-Discrimination Policy: Does not dis-
criminate in the awarding of community
grants on the basis of race, sex, religion,
color, creed, disability, sexual orientation,
national origin, ancestry or age, or any other
basis prohibited by law. Recognizes that
applicants may limit their services or oppor-
tunities to specific targeted populations with-
in the community; however, any such limita-
tions must be reasonably related to the effec-
tive provision of the services/opportunities.
Contributions from the Foundation are
planned a year in advance and are based
on an annual budget (July through June).
Interim donations normally are not made.
Requests should indicate when funds are
needed. Contributions made in one year are
not guaranteed for future years. Reporting the
use of funds is required within six months of
the funding. A donation would not be consid-
ered to an organization that had not reported
on the use of previous Foundation funding.
Don’t forget, the deadline for requests is
December 31, 2007.
For more information, please contact James
Frank at 586-3418.

Finally, a light at the end of the tunnel?
A reasonable approach to illegal immi-
You, I’m sure, are as tired of hearing
about immigration problems as I am.
Most of us have ideas about solving the
problem, and perhaps you are the one
person who has it all figured out, but are
keeping your solution a secret.
It is such a complex mishmash of
human desperation, economic needs, pol-
itics, inadequate laws and confused
enforcement over many years, that it
defies a fair and balanced, workable
solution. If estimates of between 12 and
20 million aliens are at all accurate, the
magnitude of the problem and the costs
of ignoring it are enormous.
Local, state and federal subsidies of
illegal families are conservatively esti-
mated at $20,000 per family each year.
Nobody knows, it may actually be much
higher, and we are talking tax dollars
which must come from taxpayers-all of
Not many know that our government,
Uncle Stupid, not only wastes billions
with the pointless “catch and release”
border protection, but we are also paying
Mexico $550 million each year to arm
their corrupt police, and protect our bor-
der from their side of the fence. Who in
our government will take credit for such
utter nonsense?
Emotions enter any discussion because
most Mexicans are very nice people,
intelligent and hard working. Many seg-
ments of our economy depend on their
loyal labors: construction, agriculture,
food service, hotels and motels, just to
name a few. How many of their employ-
ees are legal, and how many are undocu-
mented can only be guesswork. Nobody
really knows.
“Pie in the sky” idealists, who insist on
calling illegals, “uninvited guests,” see
no harm in making everyone who sneaks
across the border a welcome new citizen;
to do meaningful work, to pay taxes, and
most importantly vote correctly. They
seem to have little concern for the prob-
lems created in schools, hospitals, pris-
ons and jails, as well as by the hostile
gangs that have taken over control of
large areas of some cities.
The driver’s license fiasco in New York
State is one small example of the nation-
wide identity problem. The fake ID cards
used by illegals employed at Chicago’s
O’Hare field may be just the tip of an ice
berg in security breaches.
For their own reasons, much of our irre-
sponsible media won’t report on border
violence which appears to be getting
worse instead of better. They even
demean the well intentioned Minutemen
who volunteer to watch, but have never
been confrontational.
A great many citizens who feel that
laws have a purpose, insist that illegals
be denied welfare benefits, and deported
to wait in line for admittance, as do
immigrants from other countries.
Unlikely, even if possible, a mass
roundup and exodus would be traumatic
in many ways, and many, if not most,
deportees would soon be back.
Responsible people are working toward
a middle ground approach-a possible
humane solution in HR 4088, called the
SAFE ACT, (Secure America with
Verification and Enforcement). It is
already sponsored by over 100
Congressmen, and has growing support
in the Senate.
The goal of this legislation is voluntary
deportation, a slow, safe process of dry-
ing up jobs over a period of years to
encourage the undocumented who can’t
find employment, to return to their
homeland, and stay there.
Recent news items indicate this is
already happening in some areas where
depressed conditions have forced layoffs.
Discouraged unemployed and undocu-
mented aliens are reportedly returning to
their more friendly homeland.
Because of confused identity and wide-
spread use of fake documents, employers
who badly need workers have problems
really knowing which workers are illegal
and which are legitimate.
Spotty enforcement has helped motivate
them to comply, but current laws are said
to be inadequate.
The SAFE ACT sets up new standards
of identification, a Federal Data bank of
Social Security numbers, and an account-
ing of SS number violators, who may be
in the millions. (Hundreds of thousands
of our uninvited guests are Juan Garcia,
or Jose Martinez, or other common his-
panic names.
It also mandates information sharing
between the IRS, the SS Adm., ICE, and
other agencies which, believe it or not,
are prevented from exchanging names,
numbers and criminal records. The SAFE
ACT requires ICE to work more closely
with local and state law enforcement,
and changes the laws regarding “Anchor
Babies,” and “Chain Migration,” both
serious problems under current laws.
The proposed plan has sharp teeth, put-
ting heavy hiring responsibility, and stiff
penalties on employers. Illegals who are
fired will not be employable elsewhere,
and encouraged to take their family and
go home. As the new law enforcement
tightens over a period of four years,
unemployable aliens are expected to
slowly and peacefully diminish in num-
Nobody can be proud of how we have
bungled this entire matter, and the vast
sums wasted in sham solutions. No
workable plan will please everyone, but
U.S. citizens will not agree to amnesty
that rewards law breaking.
Everyone agrees that, as the problem
grows more acute, something must be
done. Let’s hope we can finally get on
the right track, become united and attain
desired results.

FEEDBACK: Edited for brevity. Response
in ( ).
T. B. in KS asks, “Could you please
explain, in simple terms, the difference
between our two political parties? (Easy. It’s
in their names, Dimwitocrat and
Redumblecan, neither covered with glory,
making our only choice between the evil of
two lessors.)
A well known Allensparker, who asks for
no initials, says, “Thanks for suggesting
Glenn Beck on CNNH. We find him refresh-
ingly candid, and an interesting alternative.”
(Yes, Glenn pulls no punches. He and his
guests tend to make you think, or try to.)
Also, regarding TV, S. R. down Glen
Haven way opines, “We have a hard time
getting TV down here, but Fox News keeps
us in touch with the world. And, oh their
cute, sharp gals make it interesting. But
what’s with all those endless commercials?”
(Fox’s huge audience, and its demograph-
ics, attracts advertisers like moths to a can-
dle, and they are doing a big business.
They’ve extended some commercial breaks
from two to three minutes, packing in eight
to 12 messages. At least they announce
[sometimes] how long the ‘break’ will be --
something I’ve seen no other network do.
We wish Fox would be more considerate of
their huge audience by rejecting stupid,
insulting, tasteless, time worn commercials,
and airing fewer of them.)
Last week’s dissertation on left-handedness
generated such comments as: “I’m right
handed but left-footed. Can you beat that?”
(No) “There were four kids in my family, all
southpaws. Our parent were both normal.”
(Good), “Jesus was left-handed,” and (so
was ‘Alexander the Great,’ and Barney Fife.)
CONSUMER VIEWS-As your Safeway

report that Safeway has revised their market-
ing of this fine product. They have changed
the labels and reduced the posted price from
$5.99 to $4.99 (meatless flavors sometimes
on sale at 3.99). So far they have not
reduced the size of the 25 oz. carton, (two
very healthy servings) or noticeably cheap-
ened the contents. Hot or cold, the “Tuscan

and the “Smoky Cheese and Ale” is quite
Not so Safeway Select cookies. A recent
bag of Macadamia Nut/White Chocolate
cookies was so sinfully good we returned for
more. Alas, an entirely different and inferior
recipe was used, with rather mediocre result.
Kudos and a tip of the Balderdash Derby to
Safeway for their generous donation of a
truck load of pumpkins for the Rotary
School Pumpkin Giveaway before
Halloween. This annual event is a long time
tradition of both Rotary and Safeway.
Safeway provides the pumpkins and Rotary
gets one to each school kid.
DISCOVERED: Your penny pinching
reporter was surprised to discover recently
that certain DVDs of lesser known movies
and TV shows can now be purchased at a
large and dominant discount retailer for $1
each. I won’t admit what I bought, but it’s
been three hours of fun entertainment, all for
less than the cost of one cup of coffee.
BLUES? LISTEN UP-If asked to list the
most unexciting subjects for discussion,
grammar and punctuation might well rank
near the top. Not knowing or remembering
rules for grammar since our school days, we
speak and write by what sounds right --
which depends greatly on what we heard at
home while growing up.
Proper punctuation does not result from
conversations-it must be learned. Most of us
know where a period belongs, and that in
any writing, commas should be sprinkled
here and there to clarify meaning. We may
tend to wing it where other punctuation is
But there are rules. Knowing and using
them separates those who care from the
unwashed multitudes.
By far the most abused little critter is the
comma. Almost everyone, including yours
truly, is guilty of either using too few or too
many. Neither fault is life threatening.
Knowing and using all the rules, upon which
even all experts do not agree, is unlikely.
All of which is preparation to share a
recent discovery which, alas, you may not
find as exciting as does Mr. B.
Recently I’ve had the good fortune to dis-
cover Dr. Richard Lederer, a wordsmith and
grammarian, who calls himself a ‘verbivore’
-- a lover of words, and an authority on their
origin and usage. One of his many books is,
Comma Sense, (written in collaboration with
John Shore) which humorously runs the
gamut on punctuation.
It was within the covers of this paperback
that I made my fortuitous discovery, the
Serial Comma. Until now, it has been a fair-
ly well kept secret. Hang loose, and in as
few words as possible, I’ll let you in on the
Serial Comma, and how it can make our
written thoughts more clear and understand-
able -- how it releases us all from the
bondage of tradition, and refreshingly per-
mits us to thumb our collective noses at our
dear, but rule-bound English teacher?
Remember the old days when we used a
comma to separate words or phrases in a
series until arriving at the word ‘and’ which
signaled that the final words were near at
hand. Until now, even though it enhanced
understanding, rules forbid putting a comma
before that transitional ‘and.’
Example: “The soup contained beef, car-
rots, onions, tomatoes, potatoes and a variety
of seasonings.”
Commas between the soup ingredients per-
mit a brief pause for separation and under-
standing. No comma between ‘potatoes’ and
‘and’ rushes the final items, and can cause a
confusion of meaning.
The new “Serial Comma” rule permits, as
always, a comma in a series wherever an
‘and’ might be used, and also between the
final item and the transitional ‘and’ in a
series, (whenever using a comma tends to
clarify meaning). You no longer need feel
guilty for putting one there!
Now, if someone would only simplify rules
for use of the semicolon, or eliminate it alto-
gether. I wouldn’t miss it, would you?

Child Care Task
Force Makes
The Estes Park Child Care Task Force
presented recommendations at a
Community Meeting November 5
. The
18-member Task Force includes representa-
tives from town government, school dis-
trict, recreation district, Estes Valley
Investment in Childhood Success (EVICS),
Families for Estes, as well as realtors, par-
ents and child care providers. Since early
September the group has worked to identi-
fy issues related to child care, early child-
hood education, and needs of young fami-
lies. At the Community Meeting various
members of the Task Force presented infor-
mation and research findings along with a
proposed community plan for meeting
child care needs of families and supporting
parents and providers.
A young family in Estes Park with two
children pays as much as $1,300 a month
for child care. Child care costs now exceed
the cost of in-state college tuition. Infant
care is extremely limited and expensive.
The issues of childcare are complex and
paradoxical: expensive for families, but
non-lucrative for business owners. It is
very difficult to “make money” in child-
care. Licensing guidelines require strict
staff qualifications, yet pay is low, making
recruitment and retention difficult.
The Task Force also looked at the com-
pelling research now available on brain
development and school success. Eighty-
five percent of a person’s brain develop-
ment happens in the first five years of life,
making it critically important that children
have stimulating environments in their
early years. Yet 95 % of our public invest-
ment in education happens after the age of
five. Studies have shown that one-third of
all children entering Kindergarten and 1
grade are unprepared to learn. Children
who start school already behind have a dif-
ficult time “catching up,” even with inter-
vention services, and are more likely to
drop out of school prior to graduation.
The Task Force concluded that investing
in quality early care and education not only
helps children, but also makes good eco-
nomic sense for the community. The
Federal Reserve Bank reports that investing
in early care and education generates a 16%
return to communities, in the reduction of
expensive social costs later, such as crime,
delinquency and welfare. A proactive
investment saves money down the road.
The Task Force presented three recommen-
dations: First, to increase care options and
accessibility, especially for infants and
after-school care. Second, to coordinate a
community-wide public education cam-
paign to increase awareness about needs of
young children and the investment benefits
to the community. And third, to create a
family resource center to provide support,
resources, training, education and funding
to families and early care providers. The
creation of a family resource center would
allow families access to many services and
sources of support currently not available.
Families are a vital and valuable resource to
Estes Park, and providing critical services
that today’s families need will help to retain
young people in our community.
A family resource center will only become
a reality when public, private and volunteer
agencies form partnerships of support. For
more information on how you or your
organization might get involved, or to
schedule a presentation for your group,

It was turning out to be the best column
I’d ever written. Thoughts were coming
faster than I could record them. My fin-
gers were flying over the keys and I was-
n’t making any typos. Colorful, descrip-
tive words were popping into my head
without pause; one sentence was light and
funny, the next paragraph was so maudlin
violins began sighing in the background.
Elation overwhelmed me. I was at the
pinnacle of my column writing career! Eat
your heart out, Dave Berry. This was it!
The perfect column…
And then it was gone.
I gasped, staring at the computer screen
where the most brilliant column ever writ-
ten had just been. My heart went into
rapid palpitations as I covered my face
and cried out.
Stunned, I clicked on “Save” but all I
saw was a blank screen.
Reducing the size of the wordless docu-
ment to see if the real document was hid-
ing underneath, I saw nothing.
“NOOO!” I shouted.
Holding my breath, I clicked “Open,” I
tapped “Save As.” I went to Windows
Explorer and searched. I clicked every
possible option available, waiting to see
my beloved document reappear as myste-
riously as it vanished.
It didn’t.
I felt sick.
How could this happen? I am religious
about saving my work. Even with a surge
protector, when there is a lightening storm
I shut down the equipment, just in case. I
don’t act hastily when closing documents,
considering the full import of each step I
Surely my column was somewhere deep
in the recesses of this computer’s digestive
system. In a panic, I called Gordon. Good
news—Gordon was in his office, sitting in
front of the four screens he has set up on
his desk piled high with electronic gadgets
and computer parts. As cheerful as always,
he told me to bring my laptop out to him
and he’d see what he could do.
Afraid to further upset the document eat-
ing monster but with an early deadline
looming, I rushed the little devil to
Gordon’s emergency room for a file dis-
section. We spent hours inside the skinny
bowels of this machine, going where no
man has gone before, finding files I never
knew existed, retrieving documents with
names beginning with squiggly lines,
stars, and dots and ending with odd exten-
sions like asd and wbk. We talked to a
Microsoft techie in the Philippines. We
bought file retrieving software. I knelt and
begged my computer to cough it up.
The best column I’d ever written had
evaporated into thin air.
“But Gordon,” I whimpered. “Aren’t
computers designed to periodically save
our work somewhere in their innards, only
to magically reappear with the wave of
your IT wand?”
Apparently not.
Still we don’t know what happened. Was
it human error? (Who, moi?) Was it one of
those unexplainable hiccups computers get
on rare occasion? Does this ever happen to
anybody else?
I don’t dare hope that one day, when I
have finally given up on the idea that my
column from November 23, 2007 will
come to light, it will resurface without
explanation, so that I may type in the last
couple of sentences and send it off for
Meantime, I have forced myself to face
the blank screen of my computer once
more, shake hands and make up, save my
work, and hope this doesn’t happen again.
But I will never write another column as
good as the one that got away.

How To Photograph
During The Winter
Overview: What would be the most diffi-
cult of all seasons to photograph? Winter, of
course! It seems that more photographs are
discarded in the winter than any other sea-
son. Why? Because the average tone of a
snow-covered landscape is far lighter than a
medium gray. So, the photograph of snow
often is underexposed. The rule of snow pho-
tography is very simple. "Most of your pho-
tographs will probably turn out too dark with
possibly with a shade of blue, if you let your
meter be your guide." There is also an old
saying, "If it is bright, add light." Remember,
without side lighting, there are no shadows
in snow to cause textures. If you photograph
snow on an overcast flat day, all you will get
is a dull, light-gray photograph... no matter
what you do. Photography during the winter
is a challenge, even for the most experienced
photographer. So, don't get discouraged,
keep learning from your mistakes and keep
Attitude: If you are thinking that it is cold
and you would rather be inside with a hot
chocolate, snoozing in front of a warm fire-
place, your photographs will reflect that atti-
tude. Get pumped and enjoy the challenge of
attacking the wintry conditions outside. Your
photographs will display your enthusiasm.
Protecting Yourself: Dress comfortably
warm and you will enjoy your winter pho-
tography experience. Learn to recognize the
signs of hypothermia (where heat is lost
from your body faster than you can produce
it). You can be affected by hypothermia in
milder temperatures (50 degrees) as well as
freezing temperatures.
Opportunities: Winter brings out photogra-
phy opportunities that are quite unique and
completely different from the rest of the sea-
sons. There are so many unusual and unique
designs available from the newly fallen snow
and frozen water.
Protecting Your Camera: Try keeping your
camera as warm as possible as most mal-
functions occur due to cold batteries. If you
can, keep your camera and extra batteries
inside your jacket. Take along as many extra
batteries as you feel you might need based
on the temperature. If it is snowing, protect
your camera with a zip-lock bag. Cut an
opening for the camera lens and viewfinder.
If needed, wrap a rubber band around the
bag and camera to hold the bag in place. Do
not blow the snow off the camera lens as the
condensation from your breath might freeze
on the lens. Brush all snow off instead.
When you are done for the day, place the
camera into a small plastic bag to protect
from condensation on the camera when it is
brought inside. Don't breathe through your
nose on the camera's viewfinder when you
photograph as you might create some ice on
the viewfinder due to condensation.
Protecting Yourself: Always tell someone
where you will be going and when you
expect to return. You may never be in a dan-
gerous situation, but the first time it hap-
pens, you will be thankful that someone
knows when you where you are. Don't ever
be too overconfident with your outdoor abili-
ty as a hiker in the winter as it will always
come back to haunt you.
A Few Tips:
1). There seems to be too many gray skies
during the winter. Use a graduated filter to
color the sky while leaving the foreground
2). When photographing wildlife in snow, the
best way to reduce contrast is to use a fill
3). Get prepared the night before and have
everything at your fingertips. You become
slower in cold weather and it is much harder
to do the simplest movement with layers of
clothing and gloves.
4). The sunlight during the early morning
and late afternoon offers unique photography
opportunities due to the reflections and col-
ors. Get an early start and you will be
5). Look for the contrasting lines and objects
that appear when the snow does not com-
pletely cover the landscape. Place yourself in
multiple positions to find the most dynamic
photograph. Don't forget to add some color
to the photograph as it will create a dramatic
effect with the white snow.
6). Night photography can be accomplished
from the light of the moon. The landscape
lights up under the light of the moon and the
reflection of the snow.
7). To reduce some sky in the photograph,
position yourself at a higher location and
look down.
8). Look for the birds. If it is snowing, use a
slow shutter speed for the snow to add an
interesting effect. Keep in mind, though, that
it is a hard combination of wildlife and a
slow shutter speed.

hope to begin a new life here in the United
States. Most have very little in terms of
personal items.
This Christmas, the African Community
Center will provide families with
Christmas bags containing basic needs.
Some local community members would
like to help out and your contribution to
this wonderful cause would be greatly
appreciated and would brighten the lives
of many who have endured much hard-
ship. Please consider contributing some of
these needed items:
• blankets
• towels, washcloths

that the Town is approving a development
on Lot 4 in the Stanley Historic District that
is “double” the allowed square footage. One
Town official called to tell me that the state-
ment was “grossly” inaccurate. Here are the
The Stanley Historic District Master Plan
for Lot 4 contains a limitation of 30,000
square feet on any commercial/mixed use
development, with all residential to be on
the second floor. Alternatively, the Plan calls
for 45,000 gross square feet of residential,
limited to “30,000 sq. ft. coverage” with no
more than a 10,000 sq. ft. “floor plate”
allowed for each building. The gross square
footage of the proposed Grueff development
at 57,879, is nearly double the Master Plan’s
commercial/mixed use limit.
I understand that the Town adamantly dis-
agrees with this reading. Apparently, the
Town believes there is no limit on gross
square footage for commercial/mixed use in
the Master Plan. The Town is also paying
lawyers to argue that all the variances are
allowable. The Stanley Hotel says the Town
cannot exceed its legal authority and must
abide by the language in the Stanley
Historic District Master Plan and the Estes
Valley Development Code. This legal fight
could last for years, threatening funding for
the Performing Arts Center. If the Town
loses its case, it could be forced to start all
over again.
More than 700 people have signed our
petitions, calling for a public vote on the
sale of Lot 4. The Trustees now have the
chance to do the right thing by passing the
ordinance and requiring a public vote.
The Trustees can also open the bidding on
Lot 4, since today there is no contract to
sell it. Ours is a government of law, not
men. Spending money on legal fights for
years to come when the citizens want to
vote is imprudent. Let’s find a plan that
complies with the rules, reflects the public’s
desire to preserve the Stanley Hotel and
funds a Performing Arts Center sooner, not
I urge interested people to attend the
Trustee’s meeting on Tuesday, November
27 at 7 p.m. and be heard.

Why Chiropractic?
Chiropractic detects and corrects vertebral subluxations, bones in the spine that twist out of
place and pinch nerves. Anytime the nervous system is compromised, the body departs
from health, often without one’s knowing until symptoms appear. Much in the way regular
dental hygiene is necessary to protect teeth, spinal checkups are essential in maintaining
body function and overall health.
What is Gonstead Chiropractic?
Benefits of Chiropractic
A specific technique that utilizes 5 objective criteria to determine exactly where the nerve
pressure exists: Visualization, Instrumentation, Static & Motion Palpation, and X-Rays. X-
rays taken on the first visit are used each time the patient comes in for an adjustment; they
help to determine which direction the bones have tipped and twisted out of place ensuring
a comfortable correction each time.
By eliminating nervous system interference, chiropractic helps with the following:

New Art Exhibit
At MedX
MedX is hosting an exhibit of the remain-
ing inventory of Dorothy Scott lithographs,
which will be on display through the end
of the year in their facility at 158 First
Dorothy Carnine Scott [1903-1993] was a
well-known Estes Park artist who printed
her own stone lithographs in her studio on
Devil’s Gulch Road. While she did work in
watercolor and in tempera, it was in oil
that she did most of the paintings that are
now in museums and private collections in
several countries.
In the 1950s she began to add lithogra-
phy to her repertoire and she and her hus-
band Professor Ewing C. Scott installed a
complete lithographic studio in a wing of
their house. Dr. Scott taught chemistry in
Taiwan, Japan and Hawaii, and several of
the pictures at MedX are from that era.
Dorothy Scott was a great admirer of
another Estes Park artist, the late Herb
Thomson, and the two of them went into
partnership with a gallery on Rt.7 in the
building which was recently Fusion 451,
for a couple of years in the 1970s. Both of
them are included in the book “Early Estes
Park Artists 1870-1970” by Jane Ramsey
with Marty Yochum Casey, published by
the Estes Park Museum.
Visitors are welcome to view the exhibit
at MedX, which is open from 5:30 a.m. to
8 p.m. Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Annual Tiny
Tots Celebration
With Santa
This year’s annual Tiny Tots
with Santa at the American
Legion celebrates fifty-one years
of children sitting on Santa and
Mrs. Claus’ laps, whispering their
special Christmas wishes.
The event was started by June
Bartlett Legion Auxillary
President in 1956. Throughout the
years, thousands of children have
visited Santa at the American Legion Post
119 in Estes Park. The Legion is now on
the third and fourth generation of children
visiting Santa, its so wonderful to see the
parents and grandparents bringing their
kids and grandkids back year after year
and watching them grow!
The Tiny Tots with Santa is open to kids
of all ages and at the event, the children
receive a free toy from Santa and Mrs.
Jenny Dudek
New Irish Dance
Class Instructor
Center Stage School of Dance is now
offering Irish dance classes here in Estes
Park. According to Center Stage owner,
Suzanne Fraiser, “So many people have
requested a class on Irish dance and I am
so pleased to finally be able to offer this
class right here in Estes Park.”
The history of the Irish heritage runs
deep in the flatlands of the Midwest
where new dance instructor Jenny Dudek
hails from. The Milwaukee and Chicago
areas claim stake to some of the largest
collection of Irish families in the country.
With such claims, comes the unique and
sought after art of Irish dancing.
Milwaukee is home to five competitive
Irish dance schools, one of them being the
world renown “Trinity Academy of Irish
At this cornerstone academy, local resi-
dent, and now, dance instructor, Jenny
Dudek cut her teeth on the art at the age
of twelve. Her passion and competitive
spirit fueled over seven years of competi-
tive competition and five years of instruct-
Years of performance at all levels and
venues enabled Jenny to build solid rela-
tionships with her students and also
spurred her on to greater accomplish-
ments. Jenny has taught students ranging
from ages four to adult. Her ability to
communicate and instruct is a hard combi-
nation to find.
Jenny’s dance accolades include:
-Qualifying to dance at the Midwest cham-
pionships for four years straight.
-Qualifying to dance in the solo competi-
tion at the U.S. Nationals three times.
-One seat away from qualifying to dance
at the World Championships in Ireland and
Classes will start on Friday, Nov. 30
The Center Stage School of Dance:
Level 1 @ 5-5:45 p.m.
Level 2 @ 5:45-6:45 p.m.
Teen/Adult @ 6:45-7:45 p.m.
You can register by calling Center Stage
at 586-3830, or if you have specific ques-
tions about Irish dance, you can email
Jenny at
Claus, delicious homemade treats and a
free picture with Santa Claus. Also, the
photos will be published in a special pull-
out section of the Estes Park News on
December 21.
Bring your children and grandkids by on
Saturday, December 8
between 9:00 a.m.-
12 p.m. to the American Legion Hall and

Happy Thanksgiving! And now, this day
after Thanksgiving, this much touted
Black Friday where merchants hope to
see their stores-and cash registers-filled,
many of us will be walking off yester-
day’s feast visiting the shops and malls
here in Estes and down below attempting
to get all of our shopping done. I hope
you all have the best of luck finding just
the right items to make friends and family
happy this Holiday season. Once you’re
done with your shopping, and watching
the ‘Catch the Glow’ parade in Estes why
not make plans to stop in the library and
pick up a book or two to relax with after
a busy Friday. (A reminder, we are closed
this Friday, November 23 but will be
open Saturday and Sunday for our regular
Irish Alibi
Author Ralph McInerny’s eleventh col-
legiate mystery kicks off with Notre
Dame hosting football rival Georgia Tech.
As the campus fills with fans from the
two schools the North/South rivalry takes
on a hostile twist when Notre dame stu-
dents (but southern gentlemen), the
Kincade twins, identical down to the cut
of their hair, decide to pull down a statue
honoring a (Yankee) Civil War chaplain
on campus. They both have the same alibi
but only one of them could have done it.
The plot thickens when a woman is found
murdered in a local motel and the broth-
ers are implicated. Enter Roger Knight,
Notre Dame Professor of Catholic stud-
ies, and his semi-retired private investiga-
Library Assistant
- Administration
tor brother, Philip to take on the case.
“The wit and wisdom of the two brothers
and vivid descriptions of the Notre Dame
campus enhance a twisty plot that will
delight McInerny's devoted fans.”-

Pearl Harbor: A Novel of December 8
What would have happened if Admiral
Isoroku Yamamoto had led the attack on
Pearl Harbor instead of his subordinate
Admiral Nagumo? Authors William R.
Forstchen and former House Speaker
Newt Gingrich pose this question in this
novel of speculative history. Their prem-
ise is that the war would have been signif-
icantly altered had the attack on Pearl
Harbor been followed by another series of
attacks. Antecedents to the attack, such as
Imperial Japan’s devastating invasion of
China are explored from a Japanese point
of view. “…Gingrich and Forstchen won't
disappoint their previously established
audience of military fiction enthusiasts.”
Margaret Flanagan, Booklist
1824: The Arkansas War
Another exploration of alternative histo-
ry is Eric Flint’s 1824. This sequel to the
acclaimed 1812: The Rivers of War takes
place ten years after 1812. “The
Confederacy of Arkansas,” an amalgam of
Native American, African-American and
white abolitionist citizens is thriving.
President Henry Clay invades the upstart
country while Andrew Jackson and John
Quincy Adams become allies to form a
new political party based on individual
rights to oppose the war. Filled with
action and political intrigue this novel
explores where America could have gone.
“Flint deftly juggles historical details and
asks important questions: if America had
confronted its institutionalized racism ear-
lier, could our Civil War have been pre-
vented? And can enlightening firsthand
experience overcome prejudice?”-
Publishers Weekly.

Library Posters
Promote Reading
In libraries across America, one sees
celebrity READ posters produced by the
American Library Association featuring
sports stars, political figures, writers, and
movie stars each holding a favorite book.
The first poster featured popular
actor/comedian Bill Cosby in 1985.
Orlando Bloom, Denzel Washington,
Serena Williams, Shaquille O’Neal, Weird
Al Yankovic, Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking
and many other celebrities have appeared
on the prestigious posters.
The Estes Park Public Library has gone a
step further and is recognizing local chil-
dren in a series of READ posters in cele-
bration of National Children’s Book Week
which was November 12-18.
The Estes Park Woman’s Club sponsored
the library’s read posters by donating the
money to purchase the two READ CD’s
published by ALA Graphics. The CDs
contains fun templates, creative type
styles, graphic elements and all the tools
to create the custom posters.
Estes Park Public Library’s youth servic-
es staff presented an after school program
in October and children in kindergarten
through fifth grades were asked to bring a
favorite book and “star” in their own
READ poster. Kerry Aiken, youth services
supervisor said, “It was lots of fun seeing
what book the children had chosen as a
Youth services assistant Melanie
Kozlowski captured the moment with the
library’s digital camera. Once the photo
was taken, she worked on the computer to
isolate the photo, choose the background,
add the type, and turn it into a poster size
print. “Melanie has such a great eye for
design. It’s wonderful to have such an
artistic person on our staff,” said Aiken.
During Children’s Book Week
(November 12-18) all twenty-one posters
were on display at the public library and
Park Elementary School.
The public library thanks the Estes Park
Woman's Club for helping promote greater
awareness of the library and involving our
community's children as spokespersons on
the custom READ posters.

Patriots For Peace To Show
Film On Israel/Palestine Wall
Estes Park Patriots for Peace invites the community to a showing of the short docu-
mentary film “The Iron Wall,” about the separation barrier being built in Israel/Palestine
in conjunction with over 200 Israeli settlements that have been built within West Bank
Palestinian territories. The film will be shown on Wednesday, November 28, at 7 p.m. in
the Hondius Room of the Estes Park Library. Guest speakers Paul and Mary Ellen
Garrett will add observations from their travels to the West Bank last year. There is no
charge for the program; donations are welcome.
“The Iron Wall” is a film by the Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committees, directed
by Mohammed Alatar, exploring the thinking behind the construction of Israeli settle-
ments on Palestinian lands, and the massive wall being built to protect them. The effects
for Palestinian farmers and communities are severe, and the lands available for a future
Palestinian state are being seriously fragmented. “If you ever wondered why the Israeli-
Palestinian conflict is so complicated, but were afraid to ask, then this is the film to see”
says Current Magazine. Former President Jimmy Carter calls this film “the best descrip-
tion of the barrier, its routing and impact.”

Catch The Glow Celebration
Opens Estes Park Holiday Season
Combine our mountain village with holiday spirit, Santa Claus, Dickens carolers,
hayrides and an evening parade where all the floats are decked out for the season and
you’ll find the largest holiday celebration kick-off in Northern Colorado. It all happens
this Friday, Nov. 23 in Estes Park and there’s no fee for any of the activities.
A 5:30 p.m. parade is the highlight of the day after Thanksgiving when the communi-
ty’s long tradition of treasuring family outings is particularly magnified. By then,
Elkhorn Avenue, the main street through downtown Estes Park, is lined with people
waiting for the hour-long parade of lighted floats to pass. The year 2007 marks the 24
annual holiday parade in Estes Park. The parade typically attracts up to 25,000 specta-
tors from throughout the region.
Festivities in downtown Estes Park begin at noon with strolling Christmas carolers,
free pony rides, hay wagon rides and visits with Santa. The streets of Estes Park are
filled with costumed life-sized characters-from native wildlife like Mr. Elk, Mr. Moose,
and Foxy Lady, to story time favorites like Raggedy Ann and Andy, Mr. & Mrs. Frosty
and The Three Bears. And of course, there is Rudolph – greeting children and adults
before he leads Santa’s sleigh to bring gifts and presents to all good boys and girls.
The highlight of this year’s parade will be the “Estes Park Queen,” with Jazz musi-
cians playing favorite Christmas carols from their stage on a rolling paddle boat. This
new creation honors this year’s 90
anniversary of Estes Park’s incorporation as a
“town.” In all, more than 40 floats will be seen during the hour-long parade. Other
entries depict family favorites like scenes from, “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” the
Nutcracker and the Snow Queen. The Dickens

& Mrs. Frosty will greet visitors from a surrey carriage while favorite musicians
and Kathy Fitch will sing John Denver Christmas favorites on a Colorado log
float. And for the third year, players, cheerleaders and fans from the Colorado
arena football team will also greet visitors from their orange and blue float.

75 live trees throughout town sparkle with tiny white lights. In addition, the town
ys six larger-than-life murals depicting everything from old-time nursery rhymes
as “The Old Woman in the Shoe” to spiritually-based parables.
ase traffic through the downtown core, Estes Park’s free shuttle system will be
operating from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (excluding parade time) on parade day.
From its hub at the Estes Park Visitors Center, 500 Big Thompson Ave.,
shuttles will operate half-hour long routes east and west along the primary
thoroughfare through the town.

Along Moraine
By: John Meissner Week 9
Locus: The Empty Keg, (former) 215
Moraine, exactly 51 years ago
“Yes, there’s something new under the turkey
sun, and it originated in Estes Park with Frank
Runz.” ---16 November 1962 Estes Park Trail
Hungry? What time is it, 8:15? I know a
place called “The Keg”, just 130 steps north
of here. Haven’t actually tried it yet, it’s closer
than the Peak Inn, which looks kind of dark –
if we hurry, we can get something before they
close. Is it a chicken place? No, you’re think-
ing of Chad’s Chicken-in-a-Box Drive-In,
same building actually, but he went out of
business two years ago. The Keg is no Chad’s
Chicken-in-a-Box, I mean, the name alone
was a mouthful, and who could match that
menu – turkey steak sandwiches, deep-fried
turkey, fried chicken, jumbo shrimp, 65¢ piz-
zas (the whole pizza, not just a slice), ham-
burgers, thick malts, they even made picnic
lunches – but I’ve heard The Keg’s Italian
sausage hoagies aren’t bad. Shall we go?
Gosh, Chad’s Chicken-in-a-Box. That brings
back some memories. I remember nursing
fries and thick coffee at Chad’s one night
(after last dance at the Riverside) until 4 a.m.,
until the manager “Bud” Chadwick finished
cleaning the grill and turned over the closed
sign. He was a talker, all right. Big plans.
That boxy building, on the left? That’s the
Rocky Mountain Parks Transportation
Company. They relocated here last year. Their
building housed four different businesses this
season (and in the future will average a new
business every four seasons) but my guess is,
regardless of the business, it will always be
known as the bus depot. I can’t imagine Estes
without bus service, can you? I remember
how Chad’s had speaker service, even deliv-
ery service. Bud Chadwick certainly was a
visionary, putting a fast-food
place next to where tour
buses were going to
unload. If only he
could have held
off his creditors
one more year.
Say, does
anyone need
to use the
comfort sta-
tion? No prob-
lem, we’ll wait.
Huh? No, sorry,
not on Moraine. Not
for another few
decades. You’ll have to use
the one on Riverside. I promise,
we’ll stay right here. Be careful, everything’s
still icy from Monday’s snow.
Yeah, L.V. Chadwick. No doubt he had some
interesting ideas for a community this size.
But I mean, come on, delivering pizzas to
people’s homes? Like that would have ever
caught on. I found out later he had come here
in 1953 to work for Redi-Mix man Fred
Wolpert, decided it was about time Estes had
a real “drive-in” restaurant. That was such a
new concept for the town board (the Dairy
King on west Elkhorn a pale forerunner), they
called it a “drive-by” restaurant. Towards the
end, Bud cynically acknowledged the board’s
prescience, admitted that things may have
been doomed from the get-go. Part of the
problem was that part. 3A, Buenna [sic] Vista
Terrace wasn’t even his undersized lot, it was
Jack and Jeanne Seybold’s (of the Texaco sta-
tion) and John and Alice Duncan’s. In his
mind at least, Jack and Jeanne and John and
Alice were one too many cooks in the kitchen.
Plus the Davis brothers required any new
commercial building on their hill be worth at
least $8000. So when Bud finally got enough
scratch together, it was too late in the season.
He started construction in June 1954, built the
place in a month, total rush job, and then kind
of blew off his IOU’s to the lumberyard and
the plumber. He of all people should have
known you can’t stiff local contractors. So
Bob Cullen and George Carlson stepped in
and took over, and opened The Keg last May.
That was quick. All right then, we’re all back
together. Does anyone have questions? No, I
won’t spring for beer. Of course I recognize
you’re all old enough, it just that The Keg
doesn’t sell any. I agree, it is somewhat
strange to name a place “The
Keg” and then not
serve any alcohol,
but it’s a little
The town
granted a
to the
lot on
your left in
late 1954,
and you just
can’t go around
handing out beer and
liquor licenses to every
business and empty lot in town.
What do you mean “what do I mean”? This
very parking lot is where Clyde R. “Monty”
Monzingo of Monty’s Restaurant (eaten there
yet? Near the bridge on east Elkhorn, absolute
best prime rib) was granted a liquor license
two years ago. The American Legion owned
the land, the town coveted the space more, so
Monty doubled down with another Elkhorn
location instead, opened up the “West Wind”
this April. Since then, he’s experienced some,
how do I put this?, umm, some financial and
marital buffeting. Rumor has it he’s been talk-
ing California, and not just to himself, which
makes some of his suppliers wonder if they’ll
still be holding the bag 50 years from now.
Here’s the building up ahead. For a side-
walk cafe, there’s not a lot of sidewalk. The
town could at least pour some concrete on
the south, to provide access to the skating
rink, or else build a better retaining wall for
the parking lot, to keep people from using it
as a shortcut. Why doesn’t everyone…Gosh.
Seems kind of empty. Closed? Hmm, that’s
strange, let me check at the Ben Franklin’s
next door and find out what’s going on…
Forest Johnson said it’s been closed for
about a month. He’s not sure, but apparently
the bank is interested in the property. Ron
Brodie is planning to vacate his half of the
bank building soon for his new store on the
former Preston Garage lot (which I’d already
heard), and, long story short, Forest thinks
Charlie might need temporary quarters
(Figure 9a) if the bank decides to expand
into Ron’s grocery space. I wonder how
they’d move that old walk-in safe? Huh?
Yeah, sorry, Charlie Hix, president of the
bank. I did kind of get sidetracked, but have
you ever met Forest? I should introduce you
all some time. Stalag POW.
Well, what do you think? This time of year,
there aren’t a lot of choices downtown.
Chubby Chuck’s and The Dinner Bell are
closed for the season, Li’l Abner’s is just
plain closed. You’re right, waffles would hit
the spot, but Harry Norton is on holiday
hours at Coulter’s through tomorrow, accord-
ing to today’s paper. Jax Snax? Sold, won’t
reopen as the Plantation Annex until January.
Mmm, possibly, but Aspen Grove is a fairly
long hike from here to find out. Pretty sure
Cottage Inn is closed. Coffee Bar? Um-yeah,
except everything still tastes a little smoky
from the recent grease fire. No, yes, there is
another coffee place (what would Estes be
without coffee places?) but the one you’re
describing, Nifty Coffee Shop, opens
You’re right. I am being difficult – some-
how you’ve made me hungry for chicken.
Tell you what. How ‘bout we wait six years
and go around the corner to the Continental,
for some Chicken in a Duck (inside a
turkey). I know, I know, the idea of stuffing a
bird inside another bird dates back to the
1830s, but where’s the harm in letting the
Runz’s believe their “Three-in-One” turkey
(figure 9b, patent pending), potentially the
earliest known reference to the turducken,
was the original Thanksgiving feast?
By popular demand, L. Lawrence Lubeck’s
Rocky Mountains will be extended through
January 6, 2008. Located in the historic
National Park Service Headquarters building
on the Museum grounds, the exhibit includes
selections from Lubeck’s Crust of the Earth
Series, which explores western landscapes.
The ten selections were completed in Rocky
Mountain National Park between 1980 and
1995. The colorful oil paintings are in the
impressionist style and done on large can-
vases, some of which reach eight feet wide.
Painting on location, Lubeck captured
unique scenes of the Rocky Mountains by
using interesting perspectives atypical of the
many painters who come to Rocky Mountain
National Park every year.
Lubeck’s impressive paintings are inspiring
visitors, young and old. Here is a sampling
of how recent visitors have described the
artist’s work: “Brilliant - I look at your
paintings and can hear the rushing water and
feel the heat of the mountain sun.”
“Incredible - I’m speechless! The color - the
movement - the beauty - the passion!”
“You’ve captured the ever-changing beauty
and power of Rocky Mountain National
In keeping with Estes Park’s history as an
arts colony, and with materials provided by
the Museum, everyone viewing the exhibit
has the opportunity to create an artistic mas-
terpiece. The activity provides an under-
standing and appreciation for the task of cre-
ating art on a large scale in the beautiful set-
tings of Estes Park.
The exhibit guide includes a map to the
sites in Rocky Mountain National Park
where Lubeck created his paintings. An
additional Lubeck piece from the Crust of
the Earth Series, of Devil’s Backbone just
outside of Masonville, is on display in the
Museum conference room for the duration of
the exhibit.

Brad And Kathy
Fitch To Present CD
Release Concert
Brad and Kathy Fitch invite you to
come sing along to your favorite
John Denver songs at a free concert
to celebrate the release of their new
CD, "John's Reminder." The concert
will be performed at the Hempel
Family Program Building at the
Estes Park Center/YMCA of the
Rockies on Saturday, Nov. 24 at 7:00
The new album features the music of
John Denver as well as never-before-
recorded original songs by the Fitches.
"We have been asked for years to record
some of John Denver's most loved and
popular songs," Brad said. "This album is
a compilation of some of his biggest hits,
some of our favorites and some of our
own songs
that have
been inspired
by John's
ness, musical
talent and
caring spirit.
We hope this
album will
keep the
man, his message and his music alive."
Brad and Kathy have performed John
Denver tribute concerts to sold-out ven-
ues in Arizona and Colorado. Along with
their TropiCowboy Band, they have
played these concerts to raise money for
the Rocky Mountain Nature Association,
the University of Arizona's cancer
research program and the Cultural Arts
Council of Estes Park. The Fitches often
include Denver's music in their campfire
sing-alongs, performed in Bond Park
each summer, as well as at their other
"John's Reminder" was recorded at
Summertown Studios in Fort Collins and
was engineered and co-produced by Bob
Buford. The CD release concert will fea-
ture live performances of the songs on
the new album, which will be available

only). Further information can be found

Quota Club
Needs Your Help
Quota Club maintains a “Loan Closet” at
the hospital where we keep recuperative
equipment to lend out to community
members who have had injuries or surgi-
cal procedures. Several times we have had
wheelchairs returned without the foot rests
attached. Some people leave the item at
the door, and if they do not attach their
name, we have no idea who returned this
item. It is very easy to detach the footrests
and put them in the trunk of the car, or a
closet at home. These foot rests are expen-
sive to replace, if we can get them.
So, if you have borrowed a wheelchair
from our Loan Closet and have forgotten
to return the foot rests, please leave them
at the Loan Closet or call Jean Austin at
586-2035, or Mary Jo Seifert at 586-6655
and we will be very happy to pick them
up. Thank you for any assistance you can
give us.

Winter Driving Tips
In anticipation of a major high-coun-
try storm this season, CDOT also is
urging motorists to be prepared for win-
ter driving and to get the most accurate
information regarding road conditions
before they travel. Current road and
weather conditions are available 24
hours a day, seven days a week via
reports and traffic cameras on the web site. Road condi-
tion information also is available by
calling 511.
It is important for motorists to remem-
ber a few winter driving tips:
• Be sure to carry plenty of wiper fluid
as liquid de-icers may coat your wind-
• Let the snowplow drivers do their jobs
by giving them extra room and never
• Slow down! Even roads that have
been treated with liquid de-icers may be
• Don't use cruise control when travel-
ing in winter conditions
• Be prepared by having a scraper, snow
brush, coat, hat, gloves, blanket, first
aid kit, flashlight, tire chains, matches
and nonperishable food in your car
• Make sure your tires have good tread
Additionally, truckers are urged to fol-
low the law and be sure to carry chains
if traveling I-70 west as chain laws will
likely be in effect. Information on
Colorado's chain laws can be found at

The Giving Tree For
Harvest House Back
For This Christmas
The Fourth Annual Giving Tree, a chari-
table event to benefit Harvest House for
Women returns to Estes Park this week.
True Value Hardware/Radio Shack in
Upper Stanley Village will again be the
sign up and collection point.
The Giving Tree offers holiday shoppers
the opportunity to support the mission of
Harvest House for Women, by purchasing
a gift for one of the House residents.
Harvest House is a voluntary association
that works with churches and other com-
munity resources to provide homeless
women with the necessities to become
self-sufficient. Beyond the initial aid
offered, Harvest House provides its
clients with parenting skills, training and
job placement, as well as a support net-
work to guide and strengthen their fami-
lies. Hope and encouragement through the
love of Jesus Christ is primary.
Bill and Paulette Prohs, owners of True
Value Hardware/RadioShack opened their
doors to The Giving Tree three years ago.
The Prohs family generously welcomed
the fledgling event by providing free gift
wrapping for any Giving Tree gifts that
are purchased in the store. True
Value/RadioShack will be open seven
days a week during this holiday season.
The Giving Tree will be on display
through Thursday, December 20
. To aid
Harvest House, stop in and choose a card
from The Giving Tree, purchase a gift
requested by the resident listed on the
card, and make a donation of that gift.
Monetary donation towards the mission
will be accepted as well, in check form.
Last year’s event raised over $1000 in
donations for the more than 50 residents
of Harvest House through the support of
scores of local individuals and families.
This year, there are 60 residents with simi-
lar needs and requests. For more informa-
tion about The Giving Tree; please contact
Bonnie and Michael Haughey at (970)-
586-2127. All gifts will be presented to the
women and children in time for Christmas.

The Oratorio Society
Presents Handel’s
The Messiah
December 1 And 2
The Oratorio Society of Estes Park,
directed by Claudia Irwin, will present
Handel’s beloved The Messiah at the
Presbyterian Community Church of the
Rockies at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday,
December 1, and at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday,
December 2. Two presentations are
planned due to overflow audiences in the
past. The Society will perform selections
from the complete work, which would
take over three hours in its entirety.
Soloists in these performances will be
Scott Anderson, Carol Blanchard, John
Breed, Lori Burnham, Jim Docter, Mark
Richards, Betsy Skinner, Melissa
Westover, and Chris Wood. Ms Irwin has
conducted the Oratorio Society chorus
and orchestra for at least two concerts a
year for the past seven years.
Handel composed this extraordinary
music in 1741, completing it only 24
days. It was first performed in 1742 in
Dublin, Ireland, at a concert given for
charitable purposes. Handel himself con-
ducted the concert. Beginning in 1743,
Handel presented the concert every year
in London. This beautiful music has been
received with great enthusiasm from its
very first presentations.
These performances of inspirational
music celebrate the Christmas season in a
wonderfully meaningful way. They also
celebrate the Oratorio Society’s Twentieth
Anniversary in Estes Park. The Messiah
was first performed by the Society in a
private home as a sing-a-long in
December, 1987. The first public perform-
ance was given at the Community Church
in 1988. Of that first chorus of 56 mem-
bers, Melissa Westover, Kathleen Black,
John Breed, John Gulliksen, and Mary
Lou Haig will sing in this year’s perform-
ance. The first orchestra consisted of 14
musicians. Merritt Martin and Ray Novy,
of that group, will play in the current
This year will be the 14
performance of
The Messiah by the Society. These con-
certs, as well as many other masses, sym-
phonies, magnificats, and oratorios have
all been presented by the Oratorio Society
at the Estes Park Community Church. The
church is celebrating its 100
this year with a series of Centennial
Concerts. The church members provide
these concerts for the community to share
in their joy. The church will also offer an
opportunity for patrons to contribute on a
voluntary basis to a fund for renovation of
the pipe organ. The community has
enjoyed listening to this instrument for the
past 25 years. The church wishes to repair
some of the organ’s mechanics and expand
the instrument’s capabilities. Admission is
free and open to the public. A free-will
offering will be taken to defray some of
the Oratorio Society’s expenses. A recep-
tion will follow the afternoon perform-
Friday Niters
Dance Club
The Friday Niters Dance Club is a cou-
ples’ organization that meets on the sec-

through May for fun-filled evenings of
ballroom dancing to the music of live
bands, socializing with new and old
friends, or just listening to wonderful
music. You won’t find any professional
dancers here, just people who love to

It's Not Too Late
To Accept The
Great American
Smokeout Challenge
Did you know tobacco use is the most pre-
ventable cause of disease and premature
death in the United States? Smoking affects
smokers and nonsmokers, causing a variety
of diseases including lung and other cancers,
heart disease, and lung disease. Overall, it is
responsible for about 1 in 3 cancer deaths
and nearly 1 in 5 deaths from all causes.
Protect yourself, and those around you, by
taking part in the American Cancer Society's
Great American Smokeout®. This year on
November 15, 2007 smokers across the
nation were challenged to throw down their
smokes and give up smoking for the day. If
you missed that date, pick another! The hope
is that after getting a taste of success, you
will be motivated to take advantage of the
many effective ways to kick the habit for
The Great American Smokeout evolved
from an effort to raise money for a high
school scholarship fund. Back in 1976,
Arthur P. Mullaney of Randolph,
Massachusetts, had the idea of asking people
to give up cigarettes for a day and donate the
money they would have otherwise spent to
the scholarship fund. The California Division
of the American Cancer Society adapted the
idea, and succeeded in getting nearly 1 mil-
lion smokers to quit for the day of the first
Smokeout, November 18, 1976. The Society
took the program nationwide in 1977.
Smoking and secondhand smoke were once
commonplace in office buildings, airplanes,
theaters, shopping malls, and restaurants. But
dramatic changes have occurred thanks to
programs like Smokeout; the work of advo-
cates in opposing public smoking and sup-
porting laws against smoking in public
places; steady increases in taxes on ciga-
rettes; and restrictions on tobacco ads aimed
at young people.
Commit to Quit
If you want to quit smoking, never fear:
Help is available. It is important to know that
there is no one-size-fits-all answer -- pick the
method that best suits you, or ask your doctor
for advice. Once you settle on an approach,
however, there are some general suggestions
that have helped others reach their goal:
Set a "quit date." Setting a specific date that
you plan to quit will help you make a com-
mitment to yourself. Put this quit date in
writing and stick to it like you would a doc-
tor's appointment. Throw away smoking
paraphernalia such as ashtrays, lighters, and
extra cigarettes on that date to help you avoid
Do ask. Do tell. Let friends, family, and co-
workers know you are quitting. Ask for their
help, and suggest ways they can support your
Look for support. Consider joining a sup-
port program, such as a group smoking ces-
sation program, telephone counseling pro-
gram, or support group. To learn about the
options available in your community, contact
the American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-
2345 or
Consider medications. There are various
nicotine replacement therapies -- patches,
lozenges, gums, etc. -- to help a person stop
smoking, as well as prescription medications,
therapeutic treatments, and other methods to
help you succeed in quitting tobacco. Talk to
your doctor to see which approach will work
best for you.
Keep busy. Calm your withdrawal symp-
toms by going for a walk, drinking water, or
talking with a friend. Do not give in to
thoughts such as, "I'll have just one." Clean
out your car, ashtray, and house to eliminate
smoke odors.
Stay away from smoky places. Avoid places
where smokers gather. Go to the mall,
movies, a museum, or other places where
smoking is not allowed.

Smokeout Challenge Web site, or contact the

Has Begun-
More Animals
Near Roadways
Motorists urged to slow down,
be alert in problem areas
and at nighttime
Motor vehicle crashes involving
wildlife were ranked as the third
leading cause for crashes behind
speeding and inattentive driving. In the
southwest corner of the state, including
US 160 and US 550, motor vehicle crash-
es involving wildlife were ranked as the
number one cause of accidents. The
Colorado Department of Transportation,
the Southern Rockies Ecosystem Project,
the Colorado Division of Wildlife, the
Colorado State Patrol and the Rocky
Mountain Insurance Information
Association have once again partnered to
bring awareness to motorists via the
“Wildlife on the Move” campaign: this
time of year, in particular, is the time to
be aware of wildlife migrating down to
lower elevations—and moving across the
While there are recognized major sea-
sonal migration corridors for deer and elk,
motorists must be aware that animals can
cross roads anywhere and at anytime, said
Scott Wait, senior terrestrial biologist for
the Colorado Division of Wildlife.
"Deer are big and elk are huge. A colli-
sion with a big game animal will cause
major property damage to a vehicle, and
both can cause serious injury to
motorists," Wait said.
Motorists also should remember that
big-game animals travel together at this
time of year.
"Animals are really moving now. If you
see one animal, assume there are more.
Don't get fixated watching one deer,"
Wait said.
There were 35,302 recorded incidents of
wildlife-vehicle collisions along state and
interstate highways between 1986 and
2004. The number of wildlife-vehicle col-
lisions reported by Colorado State Patrol
is known to underestimate the actual
number of animals killed because it only
represents accidents actually reported.
CDOT has begun collecting data from
maintenance patrols on the number of
wild animals killed and removed from the
roads. Preliminary maintenance patrol
roadkill counts show that roughly twice
as many animals are killed as are reported
to CSP. This data will serve as a supple-
ment to CSP crash data in the future.
“Data aside, it’s safe to assume that
when you’re traveling in any mountain-
ous or rural setting you may encounter
wildlife on or near the roadway,” CDOT
Traffic & Safety Engineer Sean Yeates
said. “CDOT places wildlife related sign-
ing in locations where there has been a
high incidence of collisions. The goal is
to notably improve driver safety, and we
hope motorists are not becoming immune
to the warnings.”
The number of collisions peaks between
dusk and dawn, from the middle of
October until the first week in November.
The worst times of day during the peak
are 8:30 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.
Overall, crashes with wildlife are on the
rise. Factors contributing to the rise
include expanding road networks to
accommodate new land development;
increasing traffic flows; and increasing
traffic pulses in the morning and early
evening. Unless specific efforts are made
to alleviate these collisions, the trend is
likely to continue to increase.
“Crashes with wildlife are a symptom of
a greater issue involving land use, trans-
portation, and growing communities,” said
Monique DiGiorgio of the Southern
Rockies Ecosystem Project (SREP).
“Wildlife is on the receiving end of these
issues, resulting in human and wildlife
fatalities as well as the fragmentation and
loss of wildlife habitat.”
Driver Safety Tips
"We know that the deer can't read the
deer-crossing signs," said Colonel Mark
Trostel, Chief of the CSP. "However, you
can, and the signs are there because this is
an area where deer congregate and
migrate. The best advice is to slow down.
We cannot stress that enough—if motorists
slow down, stay alert and use high beam
headlamps as much as possible at night to
illuminate the areas from which deer will
enter roads, they will have a far better
chance at reacting to an animal on the
road. And, always buckle up."
Other safety tips, listed in the "Wildlife
on the Move" leaflet include the follow-
ing: stay especially alert between dusk and
dawn; scan ahead and watching for move-
ment; look for other animals nearby; be
ready for animals to change direction;
obey traffic signs; and, as always, never
drink and drive. These, other safety tips
and wildlife information can be found at
To ensure that the location of the crash
and the type of wildlife hit is recorded in
the state's database, drivers that are in an
wildlife-vehicle collision should report the
crash to the State Patrol by calling *CSP
(star key and 277)-a free cell phone call.
Insurance should also be considered
when it comes to animals on the roadway.
“If you hit a deer while driving, you must
have the optional comprehensive coverage
on your auto policy to pay for the damage
to your car," says Carole Walker, execu-
tive director of the Rocky Mountain
Insurance Information Association
(RMIIA). “Otherwise you will end up pay-
ing for car repairs out of your own pocket.
The average repair cost of a deer-car colli-
sion is nearly $3,000 and these crashes
add up to an average of $1.1 billion a year
nationwide in vehicle damage.”
