Community Digest

This is a digest of selected posts from the Gold Hill website.

June 22nd, 2017

TOWN CLEAN UP will be Saturday, June 24, from  10:00 a.m. until 3:00

 Dumpsters and Recycling Trucks will arrive in Gold Hill between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m.  Please don’t come with stuff before 10:00!  

                                    BECAUSE

The Haute Route Rockies a bicycle race involving some 300+  racers, according to their website

 (www.sportstoursinternational.co.uk/US)

 will race up Sunshine Canyon, down Horsfal, and through Gold Hill on Main Street between approximately 8:30 to 9:15am on June 24th.

 

There will be Race Officials directing traffic through town, but be aware!  WE DO NOT KNOW exactly how many bicyclists will be coming through or how fast they will be.  The County Website https://luprod.bouldercounty.org/CitizenAccess/Report/ShowReport.aspx?module=SpecialEvents&reportID=736&reportType=LINK_REPORT_LIST  Provides further information.

 Our revised flyer follows

2017 Spring Clean Up

Saturday, June 24

10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Bluebird Lodge parking lot.

 

DIVERSION is the focus again this year.  Boulder County will support our diversion/recycling efforts, but they are no longer providing any money for trash disposal.  We will only be getting two dumpsters for trash and, since we will have to pay for them ($365 each), we will need to charge (rate sheet at the end). 

 

Four Dumpsters will arrive between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m. – 2 for junk/trash (we will need to collect a fee for trash), one for metal, one for wood – general wood/lumber as in the past.  Please don’t come with stuff earlier than 10:00. 

     ***And, as always, we need volunteers to help!***

To volunteer, please contact me, Gretchen Diefenderfer, at gretchend@mac.com  (303-442-3847).

 

DIVERSION (see http://www.ecocycle.org/charm).

Mixed rigid plastics (playground stuff, coolers, etc.) and Styrofoam

Tires – no rims.

Refrigerators and freezers!

Electronics, small appliances

Mattresses

Household hazardous waste (HHW)

Oil

            Antifreeze

            Car batteries

 

        METAL Container

No liquidsNo fridgesNo tires on rims (just rims are ok!)No batteriesNo paint cans with paint still in them.  We will take fridges and tires this year, but they have to go in the diversion trucks [there will be one for tires and appliances, one for HHW, one for mattresses, and four Gaylords (4’x4’ containers) for electronics].

Wire fencing and barbed wire are ok

 WOOD Container

No chemically treated wood including stain or paint – No nails in the wood (although a few seem to be ok, just not an excessive amount) – No particleboard.  Slash is ok – no longer than 18” (be judicious with this – there is only one dumpster and it can’t take a forest of slash) 

        TRASH  Containers – junk

        No recyclables!  We need to pay for this and will need to charge for trash. 

            $10-12 per car, van, or SUV (less for just a few things)

            $15-18 per pick-up truck or trailer full

            $25 per vehicle with trailer

Please remember that it would be much more expensive to take a truckload to the dump (a carload taken to Western Disposal is charged $37-$45).

 Repurposing – We encourage people to bring stuff that others might want.  Be prepared to pick these items up if no one wants them, or for them to go into the dumpsters.  We will take some stuff down to donate in Boulder, either to second hand stores or to Resource 2000.  But don’t forget we will have the town bake/rummage/craft sale in September, too.

 Any propane bottles must be vented and this means the entire top mechanism must be removed.  Just opening it does not suffice. We made this mistake once and it cost us!

 Isn’t it amazing how stuff piles up!  This is your chance to clear it out once again!

Actions and Detail Panel

Event Information

DESCRIPTION

You may know that learning CPR gives you an invaluable tool that can help save lives. But did you also know that a CPR/AED class teaches you skills that are a model for how to prepare for and respond during emergencies and disasters?

Join the Medical Reserve Corps of Boulder County for a FREE Resilient CPR/AED class (including American Heart Association certification for those successfully complete the course).

You’ll be taught up-to-date potentially life-saving CPR skills recommended by experts. You’ll also learn and practice taking appropriate action in the face of an emergency and leading untrained bystanders to take appropriate actions.

The Medical Reserve Corps of Boulder County designed this unique class to provide you with the American Heart Association CPR/AED curriculum plus an added awareness of how to build your own resilience.

Best of all, the class is FREE because of donated services from the skilled volunteers of the Medical Reserve Corps of Boulder County, a grant from the Boulder County Commissioners, and the technical support and encouragement of Boulder County Public Health.

Silent Film w Live Music & Chautauqua Hike

 

The Chautauqua Summer Silent Film Series kicks off on Wednesday, June 28, at 7:30pm with the classic tale  “The Three Musketeers” (1921), starring Douglas Fairbanks and featuring the Silent Cinema Trio. Set in 1625, young D’Artagnan (Douglas Fairbanks) heads to Paris, his heart set on becoming a musketeer. Soon after his arrival, D’Artagnan meets three of the most respected and feared musketeers, Porthos, Aramis and Athos, and joins them to defend Queen Anne against the devious Cardinal Richelieu.

 

Starring Colorado native, Douglas Fairbanks, “The Three Musketeers,” is a classic swashbuckling silent film with elaborate costumes, valiant heroes and scheming villains. The film exuberantly embraces the melodramatic absurdities of Alexandre Dumas’ 1844 novel and highlights Fairbanks’ ebullient physicality.

 

Running time: 119 minutes

 

Reserve your ticket now and pay by Monday, June 26, to NAS. Tickets are $12. If enough people sign up, we may be able to get a discount (we’ll settle up with you later if we get one). We will try to match up ride offers and requests to try to help everyone get there!

 

Some of us will hike for an hour on the paths near the theater. Hikers sign up in advance so we know you are coming (303-258-0799). Meet at the box office (west of the theater) at 6:00pm.

GOLD HILL TOWN MEETING NEWSLETTER

May 29th, 2017

GOLD HILL TOWN MEETING NEWSLETTER

Minutes of the April 10, 2017 Town Meeting

 Next Town Meeting is Monday, June 12, 7:30 p.m. at the Community Center

 The meeting was called to order by Vice-Chair Bear Carlson, in Tony Vrba’s absence. Ten people attended: Kristi Venditti from EFAA (Emergency Family Assistance Association), Chrissy Maedke, Member at Large Dan Maedke, Joan and Arthur Few, Treasurer Martha Knapp, Vice Chair Bear Carlson, RickSinner, Secretary Gretchen Diefenderfer, and new resident Randall McCaleb.

The agenda was changed to allow Kristi Vanditti from EFAA to make her presentation first. She reported that she lives in Nederland and is the ½ time Mountain Coordinator for EFAA and works ½ time as the early childhood liaison. She meets up with people and makes home visits. EFAA provides basic needs support – bus tickets, food bank, rent, deposit and utility assistance, help with other basic necessities. She has met with Dina Elder, Jojo Morrison, and Joan Few on Aging in Community issues. She’s working under a one-year pilot program for mountain residents and part of the grant is to do outreach. She would be happy to set up a regular time to come to Gold Hill to meet people and provide information and help.  She can be reached at 720-336-2326 and EFAA is at 303-442-3042.

Minutes were approved as published.

Treasurer’s Report – Martha reported that, at the previous Town Meeting in FEBRUARY our cash assets were $14,704.88. Current total cash assets are $13,971.94.

Revenue since the February meeting includes cemetery and permaculture workshop donations and the pass-through grant from United Way. Expenses include various report filing fees, property tax, bank service fee, community relief fund distribution and the Airlink UW grant pass-through.

Earmarked fund totals are as follows:
General Fund $1325.16; Cemetery $5,207.78; Community Relief $3,326.95; Forest Management $94.12; Safe Link (funds for SafeSite, AirLink, NeighborLink projects) $3,785.25; Community Planning $232.68.

COMMITTEE REPORTS

Community Planning – Dan reports that he is working on plans for the book library box and beginning preparations for the Gold Rush (our annual bake/rummage/crafts sale and fundraiser). He will be ordering more Gold Hill t-shirts soon.

Historic Zoning- Bear reports there is nothing new. Concerning the old Weaver house, Marcus and Elisabeth have demolished the old shed and are working on plans to rebuild it and remodel the house. Max has worked on the septic system.

Forest Management/CWPP – Virginia Schultz emailed that the application forms for the chipping grant have been sent. It looks like Boulder County will pay 50% of the cost and the residents would be responsible for the other 50%. She suggested the GHTM consider supporting the resident costs. She had questions: Is there interest or need for chipping? How much money available from GHTM to support?

Martha moved that, if interested people apply for chipping grants, the Gold Hill Town Meeting will consider helping with the 50% cost that residents are responsible for. Rick seconded and the motion passed.

We need to know how many people are interested in chipping. Please contact Virginia at arneyschultz@hotmail.com and let her know as soon as possible.

Fire Department – Gretchen reported that the Board is working to get a pension plan up and running for members of the department, as well as long range plans for a cistern on the south end of town, and completing the dry hydrants down in Lefthand.

Weed Management – no report

Gold Hill Museum – The Museum will open Memorial Day weekend. The 2018 Calendar is well underway and the goal is to have it out by the 4th of July. Martha suggested we consider Antionette Bigelow, who was the Dean of Women, had a cabin in Gold Hill and is buried in the GH Cemetery- possibly for next year’s calendar.

Mining – Gretchen reports no new activity. Addendum: We have since heard that there are new investors, that they are looking to put in a road down to Lefthand to access water rights as well as opening up access down Horsfal to a mine down there.

Gold Hill School – Chrissy requested that the school report be moved up in the agenda as it gets late for her – of course that will happen. She reports that the school is always great. They are missing Mishie, but Chelsea is doing a great job. She expects to be out the beginning of next year due to the birth of their baby, and Breida Geesaman has agreed to cover her maternity leave. They put on another play that they wrote – Scooby Do in Gold Hill. Dan and Jojo have taken over the greenhouse project and will have plants soon. They have parent volunteers and it will be set up to be maintenance free – will have rain barrels. Archery classes are beginning. Stop by the school to see the Butterfly Pavillion! Bee season is coming up – although the winds are hard on them. The Annual Camping trip will be to the Sand Dunes in mid May.

Community Spaces, Resiliency and Sustainability, etc. – Dina sent a long report.

            Meals on Wheels hosted 2 small groups from GH for free lunches at their café, which were pretty good. They would really like to share this program with Gold Hill. At this point, there does not seem to be much interest, but the service is there if more people would like it. Anyone can walk into the café at the senior center for a nice $6.00 meal (there is a sliding scale from $1.00 to $6.00 depending on need), and meals can be delivered to Gold Hill for anyone who meets the criteria, which are pretty accommodating.

            The Climb – Bob D’Alessandro from Via can come to GH on Tuesday, April 25 for a meeting to hear residents needs and desired.

            Medical Reserve Corp – This is something several people expressed an interest in hearing about at one of the “Aging in Community” meetings. It is basically for anyone, not just medically trained people, who are interested in participating in caring for people in the community during/after a disaster. This would kick in after the first responders have attended to someone and allows the person to remain in the community, if possible, rather than being transferred to a facility elsewhere. Dina wondered if the GHTM should invite these people up for a presentation at a town meeting.

            Community Spaces – has been having meetings – interested in working with Boulder County to help clean up the Schmidt property and consider uses/plans for it.

AirLink Grant to connect Jamestown – This is going well, but slowly. The big news is they have been granted approval by the CCARC (the ruling body that assigns radio frequencies in Colorado) to continue with this effort as we have proposed. We will have to prove within a year that we do not interfere with any other repeaters in our area. Bear added that there is an exciting development – they are setting up a repeater to connect Jamestown to the network. He will send out an email report.

New Business/Announcements – Gretchen reported that she will be out of town for the June 12th meeting. Bear will take notes

Respectfully submitted, Gretchen Diefenderfer, Secretary

P.S. Town Clean will be June 24th. Volunteers are needed! Please email Gretchen or call 303-442-3847 if you can help – even for a couple of hours. This will be like the last few years. The County will support re-use and recycling and the Town will pay for the trash dumpsters, so there will be fees. It’s actually a pretty fun day and we thank the Gold Hill Inn for providing the Bluebird Lodge parking lot for us!

May 28th, 2017

My Dearest Gold Hill Friends & Neighbors,

 
Please welcome the newest addition to the Gold Hill Family, Michael Felix Maedke!  Michael arrived here at 2:05 AM on Friday, May 26th.  At 3lbs 4oz, 16 inches long, he’s little, but healthy!
 
What happened?!
 
I’m happy to share.  Here’s the story, as I told it to the Gold Hill School Family:
 
On Thursday morning, I came to school with some discomfort.  I soon realized the discomfort was coming in waves, and recognized them as mild contractions.  I soon passed the kiddos off to Our Dearest Jojo and sent myself home.  After a trip to the Birth Center, I was off to Boulder Community for an ultrasound.  At the ultrasound we saw that Mikey was doing great, but my cervix was not.  I was already 3cm dilated.  We also learned that Mikey was breech.  I went up to labor and delivery in a wheelchair.  Dan met me there.  
 
The good news about having two premature babies is that things are less surprising or scary the second time around.  I had a good idea of what to expect.  I was to get some antibiotics and steroids to try to pump up Mikey, in case he arrived early.  The hope was to keep him in for at least 48 hours to allow the steroids to work their magic.  In order to facilitate that, we needed to give me an IV of magnesium to slow the contractions, and hopefully bring them to a halt.  Unfortunately, the labor progressed faster than the magnesium could take effect.  Mikey declared he was coming tonight. 
 
Soon, I was 5 cm dilated, and the doctors were ready to take me in for a c-section.  They weren’t willing to try to flip him during delivery.  If it didn’t go well, they didn’t want to end up in an emergency c-section with a 30 wk old baby.  They did an ultrasound, and who’d believe it- Mikey decided to flip himself over.  He was now head down and ready to roll.  C-Section was called off.  I made Mikey promise to stay where he was, and on we went.  
 
Shortly thereafter, Our Dearest Jojo arrived on the scene.  Close behind were Joe, Dan’s brother and Angela Stevens, my midwife from the Birth Center of Boulder.  Our nurse, Diane, is the same nurse that delivered Gabriel.  Gabey slept in the background.  My team was in place and ready.  The contractions got stronger and stronger.  With Dan’s love and Angela’s expert attention, we made it through pretty well.  Finally, it was time.  
 
As it turns out, giving birth a second time to an even smaller baby is a really convenient thing for the mama.  I was scared to push… because it hurts!  Ang told me to push.  I told her no.  That may have happened a few times.  Dan reminded me that I didn’t want to keep doing this.  I pushed.  Two good contractions later, and Michael was out.  Gabey slept till the very end- until Mommy woke him up.  Joe picked him up, and our observant little man just watched all the commotion.  
 
Having Dan, Jojo, and Ang there at my side was invaluable.  It was far from my birth plan, but hey- I got my natural birth, surrounded by the best birth team anyone could ask for, in a facility with world class care.  Not much to complain about.  And no stitches to boot!  
 
Michael came out, gave a cry, and I got a quick minute with him on my chest while they drained the cord blood and cut the cord.  Then the NICU team went to work stabilizing him.  Dan and Ang followed Mikey to the NICU, where he was hooked up to all the machinery and examined.  Jojo stayed with me, as I finished my IVs and was prepared to go.  Eventually, Jojo and I made it to the NICU.  Mikey was doing great.  It was 4:15, and time for everyone to go to bed.  Poor Jojo, still having to lead one of the biggest days of the school year- graduation day- in just a few short hours.  
 
Mikey had a couple IVs in his umbilical cord that have already been removed.  He has a machine on to assist with his breathing, though he can breathe on his own.  We are hoping that may be done as early as Monday.  He is breathing room air- no O2 needed at this time- his O2 sat levels are great.  He is under the billiruben lights, which will also likely come off Monday.  He has an IV in pumping him with fats, vitamins and minerals.  He has a feeding tube, where he’s receiving my colostrum.  He’s already had a poop, so things are moving.  Then he has heart and O2 monitors on, just keeping tabs on his rates.  There is nothing concerning.  We are so happy he’s in such good shape and can stay here at BCH.  
 
I am doing as well as a new mama can possibly be doing.  I didn’t expect to be able to hold Michael for probably a week, but they let me have him for over and hour last night and again this morning, which is a real treat.  He calms right down and settles in.  He responds to my voice.  He’s just the sweetest little guy.  Dan is running around trying to get our life in order.  Gabe is off on a playdate with his friend, Townes.  
 
And, so here we are!  We expect to be here in the NICU for a long time.  They tell you to plan to stay till his due date, which was Aug. 3rd.  With any luck, we’ll be home before that, but there’s no telling; so we settle in and plan for the new normal.  As you may know and remember, we all have our own suite here at the hospital.  We have basically a hotel room, with Mikey’s little individual doctor’s office attached to us.  We have full access to his room, and the doctors, through a second door, also have full access to him.  It’s a great arrangement.  We are welcome to be here in this room for as long as he is here.  I will have breakfast provided for me for the duration, but I’m on my own for the rest of the meals.  Dan and Gabey are totally on their own.  Stacy is working to set up a longterm meal train.  I’m sure she’ll be in touch.  Just in case- smbbru@yahoo.com
 
We will be happy to have visitors when things calm down a bit.  I’d guess by next Monday, I’ll be up for having some guests.  Sorry, but there is a strict no children allowed policy in the NICU, so the kiddos will have to wait till Mikey is home to meet him.  Definitely please wait to visit if you are sick.  And of course, it’ll be some time before any guests will be allowed to hold him.  
 
Again, Dan and I thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for all of your love not only through this time, but through the whole pregnancy- through Gabey- through next year with two babies– well, for everything.  I don’t forget for a moment how lucky I am to have all of you.  And, when you see Jojo, please give her extra love and gratitude for carrying all of us- Mishie’s family included- through this time of our lives.  We’ve leaned on her heavily, and I want everyone to know just how valued she is.  
 
Talk Soon,

Meeting to discuss national study on 2013 Flood

A new national study documents those recovery efforts and the steps taken by the Boulder County and the City of Boulder to be more resilient

Meeting to discuss national study that documents 2013 Flood recovery efforts May 17

Boulder County, Colo. – The 2013 Flood greatly impacted Boulder County and the surrounding region, and parts of the county are still in recovery nearly four years later. A new national study documents those recovery efforts and the steps taken by the Boulder County and the City of Boulder to be more resilient in the face of future floods.

To highlight these ongoing resilience efforts, the Boulder County is joining the City of Boulder and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to discuss the study in an hour-long public meeting.

     What: Discuss Case Studies of Community Resilience
                and Disaster Recovery from the 2013 Flood
     When: Wednesday, May 17, 5:30 p.m.
     Where: Boulder County Courthouse, Commissioners’
                  Hearing Room, Third Floor, 1325 Pearl St., Boulder

The study is also available online for viewing, athttp://nvlpubs.nist.gov/nistpubs/gcr/2017/NIST.GCR.16-011.pdf

The 2013 Flood was a presidentially declared disaster that caused extensive damage to private and public property and infrastructure. Boulder County has estimated that cost flood recovery just for the county will be roughly $297 million and continue at least through the end of 2018.

“Following this enormous disaster, the county has partnered with other local governments, non-profits, and community members to be better prepared for future disasters,” Boulder County Flood Recovery Manager Garry Sanfaçon said. “This study helps to wrap up the lessons learned after the 2013 Flood and highlights the advances that have been made with regard to preparedness and resilience in our communities.”

A primary focus of the research was to document the recovery efforts within each case study; the programs, policies, or broader efforts employed by each community to design and construct resilient infrastructure; and the efforts to ensure community services (e.g., housing and public health) were provided throughout the multi-year recovery process.
