Undersheriff John Stein and Sheriff Rod Johnson continue to smile throughout the
November 4 election even though challenger Brett Schroetlin continued to carry the
majority of votes throughout the evening. Schroetlin will be sworn into office on
January 13 at the Court House in Hot Sulphur Springs.
Stein thanks community and supporters
Thank you to all; all of my family, all
of my co-workers and team members, all
of my supporters, and all of the friends
and neighbors in the County. I especially
want to thank my family. I cannot thank
my wife and children enough, all who
were very understanding and reserved
through a long and challenging campaign
for County Sheriff. I am ever so indebted
and grateful to my love, my wife, Heather.
To my children, your hard work and
assistance has been a real life education
and experience that we will never forget.
Your tireless dedication during a difficult
endeavor and your support of my goal is
a great success, regardless of the outcome
and loss of the election. The ups and
downs, the twists and turns, the long
hours and short summer campaigning is
encouraging and inspiring to many. It is
especially dear to me that our family spirit
will not be broken or fractured through
trials and tribulations. Persevering,
overcoming, adjusting, and creating
success after failure is an attribute many
not only envy, but are honored to have
learned and experienced. The sacrifices
that many have made were not for nothing,
will not be forgotten, and will help to better
the community through open discussion
and voicing of opinions.
These differences in opinions and
views are what make us American,
enjoying our Freedoms and way of life here
in God’s Country, Grand County. I was
honored to congratulate Sheriff elect Brett
Schroetlin last Wednesday, the day after
the election. That Wednesday evening, we
even worked a call for service under one
goal and direction together, serving and
protecting our community. A fellow team
member noted that it was paradoxical
that on the call, Brett was working under
my command and yet, in the near future
I would be working under his command.
I replied that regardless of who is in
command, we are all working for the great
people in our community, the people of
Grand County. As public servants, we
advocate for one common goal, working
together professionally in serving and
protecting Grand County.
While we
have had and argued our differences
of opinions, I am asking all to set aside
differences that remain and work together
to reunite our Community, our Sheriff’s
Office, and our common goals to protect,
serve, and better the community that we
all love and cherish. With new challenges
and change, there will be difficult times.
During difficult times, there will be
compromises, bridging of differences,
and new collaborations will be made. I
will lead fellow team members, naysayers,
and others to this new direction with open
minds, open hearts, and compromise in
coming together in comradery.
Change creates many emotions and
responses. Some are fear while others
are elation, with everything in between.
Captivating these emotions will help
drive each other towards success. We all
have many exciting endeavors to look
forward to. Over the next few months,
National Geographic will be filming
our community policing style of law
enforcement for an international television
show. I am very excited to have worked
on this project, been selected, and able to
see this come to fruition. This is not just
an opportunity for the Sheriff’s Office to
shine, it is an incredible opportunity to
showcase all that our community has to
offer. This includes our natural beauty,
our business community, our outdoor
industry and offerings, as well as our cozy
towns and community we love. With this
being about our community and a true
“bigger picture”, I too look forward to the
“bigger picture” of serving Grand County.

Hello everyone! Welcome to my Healthful

How many of you have heard of dry needling?
You may have heard of this new technique, but
may not know much about it.
What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling is a treatment that uses small
filiform needles to release tight muscles with the
goal of permanently reducing muscle pain and
dysfunction. This technique is not being used by many physical therapists
to effectively treat acute and chronic orthopedic and musculoskeletal
Cordie Steele
Exercise Physiologist
Is dry needling painful?
For most people, there is little to no discomfort with the insertion of the
needle. However, once the needle hits the trigger point (muscle knot),
you may experience a “twitch response”, feeling like a quick muscle
cramp. Following this technique, muscle soreness can be felt for 24-48
hours after treatment. The application of heat, exercising, and drinking
plenty of fluids can help reduce soreness.

Peanut Butter
Is peanut butter a good superfood to highlight? It does contain over 19 vitamins and
minerals, two grams of fiber, seven grams of protein, and no cholesterol - all in just the
very small two tablespoon serving size. The catch is that in two tablespoons you also get
190 calories and 16 grams of fat. I believe peanut butter can be a great choice for toddlers
and kids, adults needing a calorie boost, and those that can control their portions. Also, it
is a great nutrition bang for your buck. You get all this nutrition at just $0.18 per serving.

Sanitation District budget update
The Kremmling Sanitation District
is nearing completion of its budget
preparation for the 2015 fiscal year. The
proposed budget was discussed during
the public hearing at the November 10
board meeting. The budget summarizes
the revenues and expenses the district
expects during 2015. A rate increase
for the monthly service charges for
residential and commercial customers has
been proposed as part of the budget. The
monthly rates are proposed to increase
$1.00 per month for all customers to
$39.00 per month. The overage charge
for commercial customers is proposed to
increase by $1.50 to $4.50 per thousand
gallons of water used over the base
amount of 6,000 gallons per month. The
board continued the rate increase public
hearing to the December 8, 2014 meeting
at 7:15 pm.
The public is encouraged to look
over the proposed budget and provide
comments to the Board. Copies of the
proposed budget are available at the Town
Hall. Final adoption of the 2015 budget
will be at the December 8, 2014 Board
meeting. Any new rates adopted would
be effective December 16, 2014. Any
customer within the district may, at any
time prior to the final adoption of the
budget, provide comments or suggestions
on the budget. For further information
on the proposed rate increases or the
proposed budget, please contact Rich

Campbell encourages community to stay
informed and come together
WOW, what a day November 4, 2014
was, it looks like it will go down in history
as one of the most volatile campaigns and
most voted elections, locally, statewide
and nationally, in many years. This was
a mid-term election, just think what the
2016 election will bring to us.
Speaking of history, remember all
that we have been through these past
few months IS HISTORY. Maybe your
candidate won or maybe they lost. Now
is the time we must set those feelings and
emotions aside and come together. We
must come together behind the winning
candidate and support them. Let them
know what we think and what we would
like to see done. If needed remind them
how they got there and how we can send
them home.
Remember our system of government
is still the best in the world. We each
have a vote and need to exercise that
right as was done on November 4, 2014.
We need to keep that passion burning in
the upcoming elections locally, statewide
and nationally. Those elected need to
remember we voted them in and we can
vote them out. So, as we look forward to the 2016
elections, do your home work starting
today so you can be an informed voter
in 2016. Ask those tough questions of
the candidates as they start to make
themselves known. We as citizens of the
United Sates of America can and should
hold our elected leaders feet to the fire.
They work for us and sometimes need to
be reminded of that fact.
I have heard many people talk about
different legislation and government
actions that have been forced on them.
Many have talked about the Constitution
and our rights being altered and taken
away by the chosen few in Washington.
If we work hard and work together we can
bring about the change we want to see. If
we sit in our overstuffed chair watching
TV or playing video games, we will not
bring about change. If you have not read
the Constitution of the United States of
America and the Bill of Rights or it has
been a long time since you have, take
time to do it today.
Remember it is OUR country and
they are OUR elected leaders and THEY
need to follow the desires of those who
elected them. Be an informed citizen and VOTE.

Harthun went to pick up her 4-H steer for next fair. The steer was donated by Dave and
Karen Hammer of the Peak Ranch. Coincidentally, the steer that was chosen by the
Harthun family was from a cow from the Acord family in Yampa. Taylin had chosen a
steer that was a direct descendant from her great grandpa’s herd. The Hammers had
purchased cows from Duane Acord nine years ago. In another coincidence, Dave and
Karen had also purchased four bulls from Taylin’s grandma, Francine Acord Brown
of 191 Livestock “What is the chance that out of 1,100 cows we chose one from one
of my grandpa’s cows when there was only 80 left, and that there is a large chance it is
from my mother’s bull?” asked Taylin mom’s Dalene. (L to R) Dalene Harthun, Tally

AWARD WINNING TEACHERS - Emmylou Harmon, Elizabeth Bauer and Kay
West Grand Teachers recognized for excellence
by Marissa Lorenz
Three West Grand teachers were
recently recognized as going the extra
mile at the Northwest Colorado Boards
of Cooperative Educational Services
(BOCES) 2014 COLLAB regional
professional development day.
Kay Townsend, Elizabeth Bauer and
Emmylou Harmon were awarded with
the extra MILE, or Motivational and
Inspirational Leaders and Educators
award for West Grand Elementary, Middle
School and High School respectively.
The new award is an especially
notable privilege as the winners were
peer-nominated. “It is very touching to be
nominated by peers who understand what
the work is,” observed Townsend, a West
Grand second grade teacher. “It came at a
perfect time. I am honored and rejuvenated
by their support.”
Of Townsend, coworkers praised her
as, “consistently positive” and “always
putting students first.” She was appreciated
for her daily emails, which “encourage and
elevate her colleagues,” and her practice of
consistently “setting a high bar.”
Teachers at West Grand Middle School
nominated English teacher Liz Bauer as a
teacher of excellence for her willingness to
“always help out and volunteer her time”
in supporting kids. She was recognized as
being “quick to give advice,” “not afraid to
ask questions,” and “a shining example of
what we hope our young ladies to become.”
Emmylou Harmon, West Grand math
and science teacher, was celebrated by
her coworkers as being “irreplaceable.”
“She works harder than three teachers

experiential field trips and teacher potlucks
as examples of how she “makes the whole
In addition to the award and
recognition in front of their Northwest

WGHS COLORADO RIVER WATCHERS - New Colorado River watchers were on
location during a rainy fall day to learn what is expected of them. The river watching
is under the guidance of Emmylou Harmon, and students learn to test for alkalinity,
dissolved oxygen, pH, hardness, and they take the river temperature once a month. The
data is then added to the water quality database through the Colorado River Watch
Program. Selected students test water quality every month for one year and then train
new testers. Students volunteer during the summer months to continue data collection.

Meeting the Need: Building Capacity for Early Childhood, Economic Growth in Grand County
by Katy Lois, MPH
With the closure of multiple childcare
providers in the last year, parents of young
children are struggling to find accessible,
high-quality childcare in Grand County.
The need to build early childhood capacity
has become increasingly dire, and yet the
problem often goes unlabeled as an issue
of Grand County’s economic development.
Nonetheless, several leaders are joining
together to invest in further growth of the
local early childhood system, highlighting
the effects it will have on our workforce
and general community immediately as
well as in coming years.
Defining the Need
Understanding the need to build
early childhood capacity begins in an
examination of the data. The population
of children aged 0 to 5 in Grand County
is estimated at 658. That said, the current
number of licensed childcare slots in
Grand County is 263 and dropping, down
over 18% from last year. Statistically,
this means that there is now only one
childcare slot for every 2.5 children aged
0-5 in the community. Such a ratio is,
itself, inadequate to meet the needs of
the community, but when other real-life
logistics are factored in, however, the
access situation is actually much worse.
Consider the county’s dispersed geography,
for example. If a family is living and
working in Winter Park, but the nearest
open childcare slot is in Kremmling, that
family would have to drive 191 miles every
day just to drop off and pick up their child.
This can hardly be considered accessible.
Moreover, not every slot is available
for every child. Depending on the
policies and licensing of each childcare
center, slots are designated for infants,
toddlers, walking toddlers, potty-trained
toddlers, or preschoolers. So the age and
developmental stage of a child limits the
number of available childcare slots even
further. In fact, at the moment there is not
a single licensed infant slot available in
Grand County, creating a crisis situation
for those who have or are about to have
a baby.
There are also no licensed
providers offering evening or weekend
care in the county, a fact that is particularly
devastating to the many parents working
in the tourism industry.
In addition to the limited availability
of licensed childcare is the cost. This
June, the Colorado Children’s Campaign,
the Women’s Foundation of Colorado,
and Qualistar Colorado released a report
documenting Grand County as having the
5th highest childcare costs of any county in
Colorado (comparing the average cost of
care to the median income for a married
couple). This means that, on average,
obtaining childcare in Grand County costs
couples 14.81% of their combined income.
When the limited availability of nearby
slots is paired with these high costs,
the overall accessibility of childcare for
families in the community drops further.
Weighing the Need
The numbers are clear: the situation is
grim for working parents of young children
in Grand County. Yet this is much more
than a parent problem. In fact, the full
repercussions of this situation ripple out
to the entire community. This is because
early childhood, from a community
perspective, is largely an issue of economic
development. Parents comprise a large
percentage of the community’s viable
workforce, and hence the well-being of
our local economy depends on them. Yet
without accessible childcare available for
their children; absenteeism, tardiness,
and turnover rates abound. Without a
high-quality, stable environment for their
children; calls from home, stress, and
other distractions are causing drops in onthe-job productivity for the large parent
sector of the workforce.
In some cases, even if high-quality,
nearby childcare is available for a parent,
the cost of care is so high relative to their
wages that the parent is actually losing
money by continuing to work. Instead
of contributing to the economy, capable
workers in the community are remaining
unemployed, simply because it would be
irrational for them to “pay” to work. Then
there is the issue of attracting and keeping
professional talent in the community, yet
few working professionals with a family
choose to move and stay in a place where
there is nowhere for their child to go.
Jessica Smolleck, Childcare Resource
and Referral Specialist for Grand
Beginnings, has the data to show that these
situations are more than mere suppositions.
“Right now, Grand County is in a childcare
crisis.” She remarks, “In the last six
months, I have received at least 30 contacts
from parents trying to find care for their
child. The year is only halfway over, and
already the number of calls is over 300%
the total in 2012. Parents are panicking.
They call me up all excited about a new job
offer, then hang up exasperated. In their
view, the job isn’t available to them until
accessible childcare is also available.”
Yet these are only the immediate
effects of Grand County’s early childhood
situation, since the community-wide
effects of the early childhood system are
generational as well. Research shows that
every $1 dollar invested in early childhood
brings $10 back to a community, a return
on investment higher than that averaged
in both the stock and real estate markets.
Young children in Grand County are
more than just tiny beings that require
They are investments,
and they will form the workforce that
determines the future success of this
community. This means, however, that
we need more than just childcare for these
individuals, we need high-quality early
education to be accessible for masses of
young children in Grand County. Without
it, the overall efficiency of our economy
and development of our community is
hindered, now and into the future.
Addressing the Need
Leaders in the county not only
recognize the importance of this issue,
but have mobilized in search of viable
solutions. Action is forthcoming.
Recognizing the degree to which
their local economy stands to prosper,
the Grand Lake Chamber of Commerce
is increasingly focusing on the issue of
early childhood. Grand Lake is currently
without a single licensed childcare
provider, meaning that families there must
either stay home with their kids, drop their
kids off at a neighbor’s house, or drive 64
to 124 miles each day to find the nearest
early childhood center. Entering into
meetings with Grand Beginnings, Grand
Lake has been identified as having an
open market for high-quality childcare.
“It’s about ensuring healthy development
of children in the area, but it’s also
about local job creation for a committed
individual,” stated Grand Beginnings in
a presentation to the Chamber’s Board,
“We have resources available to those who
are interested--professional development
scholarships, start-up funds, and free
quality improvement coaching. The trick
in a rural community is finding interested
and dedicated entrepreneurs.”
Eternal Hills Christian Preschool
has partnered with Grand Beginnings to
create four new infant slots opening up
this month, increasing infant childcare
capacity by 20% in Grand County. Made
possible via a grant partnership between
Grand Beginnings and Grand County
Social Services, Eternal Hills is receiving
approximately $12,000 to open two new
classrooms by January 2015 to build
further capacity for infant and toddler
care. The expansion has already added one
new staff member and will create up to
five more early childhood jobs the county
by the time the project is finished.
Beginnings is arranging to allocate funds
to assist with the opening of two new
licensed childhood providers in high-need
areas of the county. The organization
is also in the process of administering
$14,000 to fund the quality improvement
and rating process for six other Grand
County early childhood providers, a
testament to the fact that it isn’t just about
sheer capacity, but the quality of care that
can be maintained at that capacity.
“The need to bolster the early childhood
system in Grand County still exists, but
with that need lies many opportunities
which we are working to advance,”
Grand Beginnings issued in a general
statement, “It’s best for the children of
our community but also for our local
economy. The sooner employers and other
leaders in the community capitalize on this
concept, the better for all of us.” For more

Beginnings at 970-725-3391 or [email protected]

Wolford Report | Salmon
by Jeff Miller, Lake Skipper
Now that’s a bucket of fish!!! Colorado State Parks & Wildlife have surpassed 1
million harvested Kokanee salmon eggs at Wolford. Fish biologist Jon Ewert is hoping
Wolford produces 2 million eggs this year. That’s about what’s needed to stock Granby,
Williams Fork, Green Mountain, and Wolford reservoirs in 2015. Folks receiving
giveaway salmon need to be signed up at the main boat ramp by 9:30 am to receive fish,
currently those days are Monday and Thursday. Fisherman are doing well on rainbows
at the dam and the Day-Use Parking lot using salmon eggs. Kokanee salmon are being
caught using slip bobbers with small pink jigs. Water level is 15 feet down and water
temperature is very cold. Wolford discharge flow is 20 cfs. Have fun and good luck.
Heritage Coalition Corner
During the war, 1945 -1946, Kremmling and Fraser
were the location of German prisoner of war camps.
Prisoners in Fraser were used for lumber production
and those located in Kremmling were used to cut and
ship ice by rail, mostly to the Grand Junction area.
The Heritage Coalition of Grand County consists of the Grand Lake Area Historical Society, Grand
County Historical Association, Historic Fraser, Moffat Railroad Museum and Model Railroad
Club, Grand County Characters, Trail River Ranch and Grand County Tourism Board.
