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. Sincerely, John W.

Welcome to my Healthful Tidbits corner! Look for me every other week for great info on food, fitness, and wellness! 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 conditions. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 1 2 3 4 5 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 combined,” nominating comments read, identifying her greenhouse sale, experiential field trips and teacher potlucks as examples of how she “makes the whole school.” In addition to the award and recognition in front of their Northwest Colorado regional colleagues, the teachers each received a $100 Amazon gift card to be used on what they wish – “preferably something to treat themselves,” said Suzanne Stuart of the NW Colorado BOCES. 6 7 8 9 0E FRE JILLY’S CUSTOMER APPRECIATION Pick up your Punch Card today!!

Boats can be a big investment that pays great dividends if properly maintained (think fun, sun, family, and friends!).

Page 12 GRAND GAZETTE www.grandgazette.net November 13, 2014 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 supervision. 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. Besides Eternal Hills, Grand 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 information on this subject, contact Grand Beginnings at 970-725-3391 or [email protected] grandbeginnings.org Page 13 GRAND GAZETTE November 13, 2014 www.grandgazette.net Tree Seedlings For Sale Listed below are the real estate transactions recorded with Grand County during the month of October in Kremmling and Old Park.

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.
