Friends of Nederland Area Seniors and Mountain MidLife

July 13th, 2017

Please read the message below from our President Jim Guertin…contact and mailing information is at the foot of his letter. Thank you!

Serene Karplus, Director

Nederland Area Seniors

July 12, 2017

Friends of Nederland Area Seniors and Mountain MidLife –

Our organization celebrates entering its third decade serving mountain adults with wellness, fitness, and social opportunities to build a community where we can all age well. In the past year, over 400 mountain residents benefited from our meals, activities, and cultural activities.

Thanks to your help, we served nearly 3,600 nutritious meals to adults over age 60 and nearly 750 more to our younger friends during the past twelve months. Ten percent of these meals are delivered by volunteers to the frail folks who cannot get to our meal site.

Older Americans Act funds, which we receive through the Boulder County Area Agency on Aging, provide the fundamental support for the meal program, including the home-delivered meals. This program ensures that no one over age 60 is turned away from a meal for inability to pay. Participants in the program contribute at meals to help offset some of our expenses.

Our donors make our participation in this program possible by providing required local cash match for the federal and state funds we receive. We also work hard acquiring grant funding and holding fundraising events.

To keep our prices affordable and to expand our program offerings, we need the continued help of our donors. Thank you for your support.

We love getting to know every person who attends our programs and hear continuous words of praise and gratitude for the benefits they receive and connections they make in our community. Our Mountain MidLife program celebrates its second anniversary this month and has expanded our outreach immensely. These events attract hundreds of people mostly age 50 and up, filling a need for interaction between adults of varying ages, both couples and singles, building a community that welcomes all.

With a wide variety of events and activities, there is something for everyone  – not just meals, but fitness, pickleball, writing groups, book group, educational programs, and cultural outings offered multiple times each month. The high level of participation in our events fulfills our vision of providing a healthy lifestyle and a vibrant community. Our services are supported and complemented by our referrals to the Mountain Options Counselor from our local Area Agency on Aging, who assists hundreds of people over age 60 or with disabilities with everything from government benefits to the multitude of resources for caregiving and other forms of assistance.

We would love to get to know you at our Monday and Wednesday noon Luncheons or our monthly Mountain MidLife Dinners and Breakfasts – or at one of our many outings and events. All age adults are welcome at all gatherings. Please invite a friend and sign up for our monthly newsletter by emailing us or calling our office. 

Your donation dollars go a long way with us. Thank you for your financial support of the only nonprofit in Boulder County focused on serving mountain older adults.

GOLD HILL TOWN MEETING NEWSLETTER

GOLD HILL TOWN MEETING NEWSLETTER

Minutes of the Gold Hill Town Meeting, June 12, 2017

 

Next Regular Town Meeting will be Monday, August 14, 2017, 7:30 p.m. at the Community Center.  This will be our annual elections Meeting!

The meeting was called to order by Chair Tony Vrba. Attending (10): Nick Kell, Emergency Preparedness Planner, BOCO, Treasurer Martha Knapp, Deputy Chair Bear Carlson, Virginia Schultz, Luzie Mason, Rick Sinner, John Sand, Prospector (AKA J. Whitmont), Poppy Copeland, Chair Tony Vrba. In Secretary Gretchen Diefenderfer’s absence, Bear Carlson took minutes.

GUEST PRESENTATION – Nick Kell gave a presentation on the Medical Reserve Corps (www.bouldercountymrc.org ). According to their website, “Medical Reserve Corps volunteers support public health activities in the event of disasters including floods, fires, pandemics, and other events that require an exceptional medical response.” They are a volunteer organization that is part of BOCO Public Health, one of 22 MRC chapters in CO. There are approximately 95 volunteers helping out throughout the county.

Although many volunteers are medically trained, not all are as there are many needs that arise during emergency situations. In addition to functioning during disasters such as the 2010 fire and 2013 flood, they are also active throughout the year doing CPR training, building preparedness, sheltering, etc. While MRC volunteers do not wear uniforms per se, they have caps, T shirts and ID badges to identify them.

Interested volunteers can contact Nick Kell by email (nkell@bouldercounty.org) or phone (303-413-7532, 303-419-7805).

MISC

Minutes of previous meeting approved

Martha will email Treasurer’s report

Town cleanup June 24, 2017

COMMITTEE REPORTS

GH SCHOOL – No report (NR)

COMMUNITY PLANNING – Gold Rush will be held Sep 17, 2017

COMMUNITY SPACES – NR

HISTORIC ZONING (Bear)– The property between Laughlins and Michael Putrillo has sold to Joyce Robinson, who plans to build a small residence. She has been in contact with HZ and will work with us as plans proceed.

FOREST MANAGEMENT (Virginia) – BOCO has $4K available to support chipping for local residents, which will occur July 27 & 28, 2017. Approximately 6-10 property owners have expressed interest so far. Four Mile has been selected to do the work at a rate of $180/hr. BOCO will pay half the cost; at a previous meeting, GHTM recommended paying half the remainder (i.e. 25%), with property owners responsible for 25%. Virginia will coordinate, including making sure property owners have the slash (6” max diameter) stacked for easy access the weekend ahead of chipping. Four Mile estimates a “Suburban-sized” pile of slash takes about an hour to process, which would cost the property owner $45.

MOTION: “GHTM will pay 25% of the chipping cost for local residents, up to a maximum of $900.” Passed unanimously.

Virginia will explore an opportunity to be a “fire-wise community.”

FIRE DEPT – NR

WEED MGMT – NR

MUSEUM (John) – The museum opened for the season on Memorial Day weekend. Several exhibits have been spruced up and rearranged, and there is a new exhibit featuring Dr. Edna (?) Campbell. The fence has been repaired and realigned with the entrance now from Pine St. Volunteers are needed to prep and paint the fence the week of June 19, 2017.

MINING (Bear) – Mark Steen received permission from BOCO to remove a section of guard rail on Horsfal to access part of the mine for maintenance. The guard rail has subsequently been replaced.

SAFELINK (Tony) – Nothing scheduled; possible phone tree test this summer

AIRLINK (Bear) – Design work on the new repeater in Jamestown is underway. Mark Elder is helping out on the “very challenging” cable design details.

IMA (Tony) – Next meeting June 22, 2017 in Allenspark. Tony will attend.

OLD BUSINESS

Book exchange mailbox – on hold due to Dan and Chrissy’s new baby

The Climb has a new schedule

Elections Aug 14, 2017. New volunteers are always encouraged to join the fun!

NEW BUSINESS

ADOPTION OF RANCHO FAZOO (Tony) – JoJo Morrison is spearheading efforts for GHTM to adopt this property, which is part of the new BOCO Open Space acquisition. An on-site tour was held to explore possibilities for GHTM to help clean up the space so it could be used for community events. BOCO is supportive and would supply a rolloff trash container – but would insist certain rules be followed, including a commitment from GHTM to hold cleanups four times annually, etc. The GH Museum would be welcome to any artifacts that might surface during cleanup activities. Permacultural aspects of the property will be kept in mind, as well as maintaining wildlife corridors, etc.

Because only three GHTM council members were present, and they confessed to being remiss in not carefully studying the documents Tony sent around outlining the requirements for adoption, the issue was tabled to a future meeting. ADDENDUM – A Special Town Meeting will be held Monday, July 17 at 7:30 to discuss Rancho Fazoo issues  as well as issues around Bike Races through Gold Hill to insure the safety of Gold Hill residents as well as of the bicyclists.

EMERGENCY SIRENS (Tony) – Dina is investigating how well the verbal warning sirens in Jamestown are working. Such a system could be useful in GH, but many questions remain, such as:

  • What would be required to include the subdivision in such a warning system?
  • Would the regular testing required be worth it in terms of disturbing our tranquility?
  • Is person-to-person communication (e.g. Neighborlink) more effective anyway?

POTHOLES IN MAIN STREET

What little part of Main St is paved is suffering from major potholes. Residents were encouraged to phone or email Ted Plank with BOCO, who is known to be quite responsive.

Mountain Options Counselor

July 9th, 2017

Colleen Sinclair came to our Town Meeting in February to let us know about the many services the County provides to mountain residents.  

.She reported that she has been with the County since mid-summer and came from Mental Health Partners. She is also a certified Medicare Counselor. She lives in a yurt in Jamestown and is getting to know the mountain communities.  The aim of AAA  (Area Agency on Aging) is to uphold the mandate of the 1965 Older Americans Act – to provide information and assistance to those in need including providing short term assistance funding (up to $500) for those 60 and older as well as 18-59 with disabilities.

           Colleen is willing to come as often as we want to provide information on the many county services available.  She will be available to answer questions and provide information.  She is a wonderful mountain resource person.  Here is her email and contact information:

Good morning,

 I am going to be at the Gold Hill store the third Thursday of each month beginning on July 20th.  I will be at the store from 1-3p, and can expand those hours in the future if needed or warranted.

Thank you and hope you’re well!

Fourth of July

 

BAND/PARADE: For those folks looking for a little festive daytime celebration Barker Dam Brass Band, which used to ride on a bandwagon through the parade, will play from 11am to Noon outside the Train Cars. They celebrate their 25th year and this may be its final year performing, so come catch the historic nostalgia of a little brass band in our town. If you play a brass, woodwind, or percussion instrument and would like to join for a short, easy-read performance, please contact thecork@aol.com or 651-238-7312.

The parade was reinstated at last minute, so there should be a Noon Parade up east First Street from the Reservoir towards the business district, turning north at Snyder Street. The band will not be in the parade, as they committed to the Train Cars performance when the parade had been cancelled.

 

FIREWORKS: We are gathering for the Black Hawk Fireworks on Tuesday, July 4. If you’d like to socialize with others from our group and enjoy the biggest, longest fireworks show we’ve seen anywhere, show up at the Ameristar parking garage 10th floor at 8:15pm. Please note that this is outdoors in the parking garage, not indoors in the hotel.

We cannot drive onto that level, so park where you can, then come up and look for Margaret Freeman with a small table and 8X11 Mountain Midlife logo (batik blue and brown mountain).

Bring your own lawn chair, non-alcoholic beverages (there will be a security check), and finger-food snacks to share.

Poggio D’Oro results!

July 2nd, 2017

Congratulations to the winners, Rick Sinner and Norm Skarstad. They’ve worked long and hard for this victory!  And to the runners up, Dustin and Krista Geesaman.

 

Attached are the final scores. Thanks to all of you for participating – yet another great bocce tournament.

The next time you roll, you will do so with new balls. They’re slightly smaller but still heavy enough to roll well. And they’re clearly NOT pink or blue!

Keep rolling

Town Clean up report

June 27th, 2017

Town Clean Up went reasonably well, all in all.  The racers were much later than predicted.  I’m sure glad we put off the clean up until 10:00.  The dumpster trucks arrived at 9:30 up Fourmile (or Gold Run Road, as it’s called now), and had to wait there, blocking the road for some time until the racers thinned out enough for them to come through the intersection.  The coordinators on foot were nice and helpful.  The first State Patrolman who came through, was going at least 25 mph and we stood up and gestured for him to slow down.  He glared at us, but …..!!!  Really!  Anyway, we got everything organized in the parking lot and on the street. Enough people showed up to help, including Dan Maedke, John and Cherry, Karen Simmons, Emily Rose, Chad from across the street, Bobby Vrba (he’s a Godsend, for sure), Rebecca Gretz, and all the County recycling people, who were totally helpful. Thank you so much, you all! If I forgot anyone, please know that you were appreciated.  The County people took appliances (not many), mattresses, hard plastics and hard styrofoam, tires.  Two of them even went out with Dirk Arnold to his place and helped him load a small, broken cast iron stove and bring it back for the metal dumpster! We didn’t have any refrigerators.  We collected $423.00.  The free stuff was pretty great, but maybe 1/2 of it ended up ion the dumpsters.  Started cleaning up at 2:00 when they picked up the first dumpsters (one trash, and the metal one). We continued to clean up, a few more people drifted by with this and that and most people cleared out around 3.   I stayed until a little after 5, when they picked up the last 2 (the other trash and the wood/slash one).  

It was fairly slow, and the second dumpster wasn’t really full.  I’m wondering if we should consider having it every other year?  

I was totally relieved that the decision was made to have them come down Horsfal and thru town more slowly and am happy if my efforts helped evoke some common sense.  I still get agitated when I think that they were actually going to let them race through!  We have decided to hold the special town meeting on the 17th to discuss this, which I’m happy about.  I haven’t heard from the Commissioners in response to my letter – will let you know if and when I do.

I hope John Holste, Special Event Coordinator/Planner II Boulder County Transportation Department 303.441.3906 jholste@bouldercounty.org will come to our meeting to talk about event planning and notification issues.

Community History Outreach

June 26th, 2017

Just a reminder to save the date for our second annual “Community History Outreach” for this year.  Last year your museum hosted a presentation about the female artists of the late 19th century and the start of the 20th century.  These female artists painted scenes of the front range which coincided with our exhibit on the Bluebirds of Gold Hill.  Thanks to the efforts of many people, the Bluebird exhibit was a huge success and we were the recipients of an award for the Gold Hill Museum and its work!  Many thanks to Laurie Britton-Newell for her tireless work and support of our efforts. 

This year on Friday evening, August 11th we will be celebrating with you once again.  We at the museum are focusing on Ann and Ward Yeager and local mining.  We will have two guest speakers:  Ed Raines, instructor at the School of Mines speaking to us regarding Ward Yeager, his mine, The Copper King, and Gold Hill and Boulder County Mining.  Chellee Courtney, our past President of the Museum Board and local historian will be speaking on the female part of this team, Ann Yeager, her life in Gold Hill as a teacher at the school, her life with Ward, a member and landlady of our community,  and her education and life before Gold Hill.  Additionally, several people will make up a team for sharing their tales and memories of the Yeagers following the presentation.  We invite you to share with us any anecdotal materials you have on the Yeagers as well.  All of this will be video recorded for our archival memories of Gold Hill.  We’re hoping that you’ll plan on attending.

The cocktail party will begin at 5:30 pm in John and Cherry Sand’s back yard.  Please join us for this fun and informative evening.  The presentation officially begins at 6 pm.

This is our special presentation this year created especially for you, our community, on the history of Gold Hill.  Each year our exhibits change as we move from subject to subject.  We know that many of you are passionate about our history and we at the museum are proud to be your stewards and protectors of the museum.  We take a great deal of pride in our efforts and give many hours of our time to keep this gift available for you and future generations of Gold Hill. We’re hoping that you appreciate our efforts and join us for this fun event.

Update on the Bicycle Race on Saturday

June 22nd, 2017

Thursday at 5:24 p.m.  Good evening everyone,

I wanted to update you all on the changes that have been made to the Haute Route on Saturday.   In response to the scheduled community cleanup in Gold Hill as well as the road damage on Horsfal St.; Boulder County Transportation will be requiring that racing be suspended through the town of Gold Hill.   

Riders will be required to obey rules of the road and all traffic control officer’s orders from the feed zone just east of Gold Hill at the turnoff to the mine until approximately two miles west of Gold Hill, where racing is permitted to resume.  This will allow for dumpsters and trucks to arrive for the cleanup while ensuring the safety of riders in the race.

Here is a link to the area in question:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Nt_-LH6qkf8utn1fGX0QHWfSncc&usp=sharing

I’ve also attached a copy of the map to this email as well.

Please email me if you have any questions in regards to this change as I will be out of the office tomorrow.  Thank you again to members of the Gold Hill community who brought the cleanup to our attention as soon as they were notified of the race so that the necessary adjustments could be made.

Sincerely,

John Holste

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!

Get Ready to Ride the Climb!

June 6th, 2017
Get Ready to Ride the Climb!
New Summer schedule June 12 – August 15 
FREE SERVICE for the first week June 12 – 16
 
(new schedule will be at this link sometime tomorrow – schedule attached to this message below)
                            
(Note that if you are on a limited budget, you can get a further discount on fare.)
 
Via has agreed to offer a later morning route for the Climb for this summer. This is a bit of a trial so they can judge whether people will ride the Climb enough to justify this and, perhaps, other additional routes.
 
Try riding down to work one day, take it one-way to pick up your car at the shop, or invite your friends for a fun event, and give it a try. 
 
Ideas:
Happy Hour, Wed. Farmer’s Market, Mid-day lunch and movie, Breakfast or Lunch out, Day at the library or at art or museum events…
