Moving Books

Neighbors,
I am heading up the Book Bees this year. I am trying to find guys with strong backs to help move the books that have been sorted from Station #1 to #3.
The books need to be moved in order to take the weight off of the second floor. If 4 or 5 people could help move these books, it would only take an hour or less. If you can help, we could move them Saturday morning around 10.
Please call me or e-mail me.
Thanking you in advance for your help,
Carolyn

Theft

Someone came onto our property either yesterday late afternoon or early this morning and stole a cordless drill, impact driver and a battery from the toolbox on the chipper that is being used to clear burned trees from the property. We suspect they walked in sometime between when the timber workers left yesterday afternoon and before dark or, in broad daylight this morning before the workers returned to the property to begin work (which further suggests they may have been watching the property). We did call law enforcement, a deputy came to the site, and at my request he contacted several close neighbors to “see if they saw anything suspicious”. The toolbox was not locked but getting to the chipper was a deliberate act on the part of the person who took it. You can’t just be walking by its current location halfway up the side of the mountain on private property and just happen to see there are tools inside the big heavy metal lid that is always closed. I think maybe neighbors might like to know there is someone in the area who can’t be trusted, I live about a mile above Fire Station 1, north side.

Disaster recovery funding

The 2nd round of disaster recovery funding is available to farmers and ranchers who have an agricultural business that was impacted by the 2012 and 2013 fires or flood.

We have already assisted over 50 farmers through round 1 by helping them with disaster recovery projects like building barns, installing new fences, cleaning out irrigation ponds, land leveling and debris removal. We've also assisted them in purchasing equipment that is needed to help with their daily business operations or paying for operational costs.

I'd be happy to send you more information on the grant if you can assist us. Or if there's someone else that might be a good reference, I'm happy to contact them directly. I've included the link below if you are interested in learning more about the grant itself.

https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/dola/agriculture-business-grant

The application deadline is Friday, January 20th so please let me know if I can send you an email with more details. Thank you!

Colorado Gives day

Colorado Gives Day is just around the corner. We are hoping to raise funds this year to keep the Rist Canyon Volunteer Fire Dept growing for the next 20 years and beyond! You can donate anytime, or on December 6, but why wait for the holiday rush! It's also a great way to gift to that person who has everything. Feel free to visit the web site anytime. And share with your friends!

Colorado Gives Day

I know we are all being stalked by our favorite non-profits about Colorado Gives Day next Tuesday (December 6th). However, RCVFD is now included in that event & I wanted to make sure you were all aware of that. I would encourage you to use all of your networks to let your friends, relatives & neighbors know that RCVFD is now an option in their giving choices for Colorado Gives Day. As a department that relies totally on the generosity of our donors, this opens up our avenues for donations to a wider audience - we just have to make sure they know about it. This is our first year, but could become a significant source of income for the Department. Thanks for helping to spread the word.

Thanks & Adios, CJD

Mountain Lions in Lower Canyon

Over the past month, we've had multiple mountain lion (4) sightings in the lower Canyon area (mouth of Canyon to Davis Ranch). On Tuesday evening (November 29th) around 7pm, two lions were seen in the road at the entrance to the Canyon (right by Cloudy Pass subdivision).

These are adult sized lions. Just a note to remind us all we share these mountains and forests with wildlife.

Dog found

We found a dog that would really like to go home to his owners (found on our property on Fire Rte 3)? He is a neutered male, about 30 ish pounds. Looks like a boarder collie/aussie/pit cross. Black and white with some brown on the legs. Sweet attitude. No tags, but has a black collar with "Top Dog" on the buckle. Our number is 970 224 3734
Thanks

Fire Restrictions Extended

Current fire restrictions (which were set to expire the end of this month) have been extended by the Board of County Commissioners until at least September 15th. Although we have gotten a little moisture, fuel conditions are still dry. The Hertha Ridge fire near Carter Lake showed us that fires can move quickly under current conditions.

Thanks & Adios, CJD
