Homelessness (Again) – The Beleaguered Population

Too cold and snowy the last two days. i am going back to be homeless again.

So what …

Much like a town like Bloomington, Indiana, the Christian churches in Glenwood Springs, Aspen, Basalt, and Silt, Colorado, do a fine job providing at least one hot meal a-day and there is a daytime ministry where people can rest and eat breakfast and lunch five days a week.

This area has more resources for homeless (house-less or apartment-less) during winter and early spring months. During the late spring, summer, and early fall, many people camp-out.

This can be both hazardous* and criminal. Yes, city police will arrest homeless people if they are found sleeping in public.

* Check out a book entitled, “Don’t Get Sick.” The second edition by Buck Tilton and Dr. Rick Bennett is 108 pages.


What is the Tune to this Anthem?

Where the snowy peaks gleam in the moonlight,Above the dark forests of pine,And the wild foaming waters dash onward,Toward lands where the tropic stars shine;Where the scream of the bold mountain eagleResponds to the notes of the doveIs the purple robed West, the land that is best,The pioneer land that we love.

Tis the land where the columbines grow,
Overlooking the plains far below,
While the cool summer breeze in the evergreen trees
Softly sings where the columbines grow.
The bison is gone from the upland,
The deer from the canyon has fled,
The home of the wolf is deserted,
The antelope moans for his dead,
The war whoop re-echoes no longer,
The Indian’s only a name,
And the nymphs of the grove in their loneliness rove,
But the columbine blooms just the same. Let the violet brighten the brookside,
In sunlight of earlier spring,
Let the fair clover bedeck the green meadow,
In days when the orioles sing,
Let the goldenrod herald the autumn,
But, under the midsummer sky,
In its fair Western home, may the columbine bloom
Till our great mountain rivers run dry.

The World Needs More Grown-Ups

This author provides good insight (2 years ago). It took them years, but the City of Aurora released results of a contracted analysis today (October 2014).

Mostly Bright Ideas

Yet again, we find ourselves horrified and confused by an unprovoked shooting in a public place. We look for explanations, and someone or something to blame. We’re sure there must be a reason for these events, a way to understand their causes, and a means to prevent them in the future.

I don’t think so.

What we’ve learned over and over is that a small group of people — and even an individual — can cause widespread injury, death, and destruction, and with very little effort. The massacre of thousands of human beings in a single day is almost unimaginable, but such a thing has happened hundreds of times, in all regions of the world and in every century of recorded history. In the most recent decades, terrorists have reminded us repeatedly that no one is totally safe.

The natural question is, Why? What compels a person to step so…

The Western Town That NEVER Sleeps [New York Springs City!?!] – Naw, Jus’ Call It Defiance Crossing, Coloradough

… and yep, we have the best donut (yeast and cake and French) west of the North American continental divide… Just come on in at 5:00 a.m. MDT, south of Glenwood Springs, off of California Highway 82. It is an ‘exquisite eatery’ called Coloradough, specializing in mile-high baked breads, cakes, doughnuts, and other surprises.

Nowadays, this sleepy city of over 9,000 inhabitants, 4,000 tourists, and millions of insects does not sleep anymore… as of June 2014. If you get caught asleep in town, someone with either threaten you or throw you in jail. Recent experiences have shown that no help is given even innocent defendants or victims of misdeeds for either (a) A speedy trial as guaranteed by the US Constitution, or b) Offer of representation of a competent attorney as nominally practiced as code throughout the other 51 states (including Puerto Rico and Costa Rica).

The Dailey Telegraph – Tribune
July 21, 2014 –  St. Bud Day!  –  Monday’s Rise & Shine 5-Star Edition
Bulletin: All-News, Sports, and Weather Hot Flashes

The famous Glenwood Hot Springs is to be featured in the next Sunday issue. Keep your eyes out for the August 3rd edition of “The Dailey Times-Tribune.” Price is only two bucks. You’d have to pay $7.00 plus sales tax for the New York Times Sunday edition; and it wouldn’t even have news about James Garfield County and the local librarians. 

On the 27th of July is the Wedding Reception of the Dailey Sun’s Publisher Buck. 

The Dailey bride and groom have a Bridal Registry at the Kum and Go.

There are two (2) seats available at the tables set at the Village Inn this Sunday afternoon. Interested in joining the lottery?

Yep, there will be a no-host bar at Buck and his Bride’s (her name remains confidential) wedding reception. 

Happy Birthday Anniversary for Saint Buddy Schultz, a longtime Chicago Bear, White Sox, and Black Hawk fan, who also loved being in the Rocky Mountains.  His lovely wife and two grown daughters survive him in Chicagoland. Dear St. Buddy served the falsely accused man (and women) in the courts of Chicago for nearly 40 years! During the summer of 2008, (as a member of the Cook County Democratic Party, his buddies supported the first election of Illinois favorite son Barack Obama and (this Publisher’s and Teddy’s favorite ’08 candidate) U. S. Senator Joe Biden of Delaware, he suffered a heart attack and major stroke while orating his client’s Superior Court case. Leonard A. “Bud” Schultz, Jr. would have celebrated his 40th wedding anniversary with dear Mary Christine this week had St. Buddy lived to the age of 68. 

Choo-Choo Traffic:  It was 3:19 a.m. MDT, Friday, July 18, another Union Pacific- Burlington Northern freight train was headed westbound through Rifle. Looks like the same train that Thursday evening went eastbound to the Summit. Same engines, same configuration, same 52 half-full coal cars, go figure.

Lost and Found in James Garfield County 

Lost: The “Save Luke Fund” has been formed by five Board of Directors to help a disabled Colorado resident with medical, rehabilitation, and legal costs. Please submit non-deductible donations in care of the First Bank on Grand Avenue (located south of Turtle’s, Taco Bell, City Market and north of Sweet Coloradough bake-house and Bradley-Sinclair gas-convenience stop) to Dailey Account # 2671-22-xxxx. 

Looking for contractors and employees for The Dailey Globe/Planet/Telegraph, Times- Tribune, Chronicle, and Sun-Times part-time positions… Interested parties, parents, job developers, and agents should correspond to P. O. Box 777, Glenwood Springs, Colorado (81602-0777). Applicants must be at least 14 years-old or have car insurance. 

Found: The new illustrator/political cartoonist for The Dailey Sun newspapers is not  Bridget Jones or Garry Trudeaux. Sorry folks, but the position was filled the first day it was announced. The winner is Mr. Carey Smith. Stay focused with the papers for some fantastic drawings and ideas. 

Sometimes life, green grass, the opposite sex, and hot food appears better on the other side of the street.  For instance, because of their manager’s permissive policy of allowing waitresses to wear pistols to work, Shooters Grill of the Town of Rifle, Colorado, has received local acclaim and more than five minutes of national fame. Along the same side of the street is a restaurant property for lease. On the other side of the street is an excellent morning diner – Base Camp Café at 120 East Third Street – that the international press (except for us) seem to be ignoring. The publisher could not begin to finish his portion served on Friday morning. The hot skillet entrees are splendid with the country breakfast potatoes, side of green chili, and the mile high-altitude baked biscuits. 

Mr. Luke is no longer in critical condition. Chronicle and The Dailey Planet Reporter “Lois Lane” writes that Luke has broken his pelvis, has come out of a coma, and will remain in an undisclosed Denver hospital for a longer period of time. Luke was helicoptered from Valley View Medical and Cancer Center on the night of Wednesday, July 1, following a 25 to 30-foot fall from the Grand Avenue-State Highway 82 Colorado River pedestrian bridge. Onlookers reported that police may have waited over 3 to 23 minutes after Luke’s fall to call for ambulance assistance. 

Arby’s calls it quits in Glenwood Springs. After years and years of serving it up next to Wendy’s and Sinclair gas, the International Beef Company had its final day of operation on South Grand Sunday the 20th of July. 

Joe continues his European pilgrimage. Although the Dailey Sun-Times’ Publisher was unable to travel farther east of the Rocky Mountains on June 9th, his best man Josef Paul Kocy visited Vatican City during the week of July 6th and was in Venice this past Monday. Note one his fine photo of the altar inside St. Mary’s Church in Venice. Prayers to St. Mary saved the City of Venice from a major plague during the 15th Century.

 Rotary Club hosts musical picnic at Twin Rivers Park after the 2014 Colorado River Clean-Up. Almost 100 local citizens enjoyed the noontime festivities on Saturday, July 19th following three hours of environmental straightening up. Food was prepared by over six restaurant and brewery sponsors, including Lost Cajun Joe and Peppino’s Pizza found near Glenwood Springs Senior High School.

Vaudeville on Grand Avenue in Glenwood Springs. Dinner theatre seating still available for this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday the 19th. Funny, fun, laughter! 

Faceburgering from “Sweet Coloradough” — South Glenwood Springs, Coloradough 81602-2430
Travis – of the town’s 7-11 on Grand Avenue Shop – was sighted inside this bakery before 6 a.m. last Saturday the 11th. What donut variety he ordered to consume is protected by our 2nd and 4th Amendment rights. If you want to know, go ask Travis some evening yourself! 

Prime Minister Merkel displaces President Barack Obama as “Leader of the Free World.” Already the combined economy with the federation of former lands of Nazi Germany and Communist Germany had supplanted the United States of America as #1 in the world. Now that Germany has won the 2014 FIFA World Cup of international soccer from the likes of South America, German Prime Minister Andrea Merkel is now arguably the most powerful political person on earth (despite the fact that the USA armed forces are superior and the Israeli intelligence community is slightly more advanced).  

Riders in the Sky happening at the newly-renovated Ute Theatre on Friday, July 18, 2014, in remarkable Rifle, Colorado, was not only a sellout but a knockout! Woody Paul and the other three famous western ballad singers… Such delightful and entertaining musicians! 

As seen on the sidewalk window of Shooters Grill of Rifle:

“Guns are welcome.

Please keep all weapons holstered unless the need arises.

In such case, judicious marksmanship is appreciated.”
