Quotes

   “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

–Margaret Mead

   “There has to be a strategy as well as an ideal.”

 –Frank Boyden of Deerfield Academy, quoted by

John McPhee in

The Headmaster 

   “Good intentions are like crying children in church: they should be carried out immediately.”

    “‘Then I’ll do it myself,’ said the Little Red Hen, and she did.”

   “The calm is on the water and part of us would linger by the shore, For ships are safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.”

–Michael Lille

   “Do what needs to be done, and check to see if it was impossible only after you are done.”

–Paul Hawken

   “Only begin, and the rest will follow.”

–David Wagoner, “The Source”

   “I am looking at singing in a concert as being a metaphor for our life.  The concert is beautiful, and we hate for it to be over, all that lovely music in our heads (forever) – but we can’t keep singing the same piece for ten years, we need to go on to the next beautiful piece, and then we have even more lovely music in our heads forever.”

“Paths clear for those who know where they’re going and are determined to get there.”

–Anonymous

“Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn.  Problems are simply part of life that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.”

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

–Edmund Burke

 “You don’t see much in a small town, but what you hear makes up for it.”

THRU JAN 24: RMQM: JAPANESE QUILTS AFTER TSUNAMI

From: Irene Berry,Tuesday, September 23, 2014

   Wishes Through Our Hands: Japanese Quilts Made in Response to the 2011 Tsunami – October 30, 2014 through January 24, 2015

   On March 11, 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake occurred only 43 miles of the coast of Japan. It was the most powerful earthquake to have ever hit Japan, and triggered a tsunami with waves that reached heights of up to 133 feet.

   The waves washed away families, homes, and jobs. Many quilts were made in response to the disaster, both by those who wished to comfort the survivors and, later, by survivors who needed hope. Miwako Kimura, Sachiko Yoshida, and Noriko Koyama, three noted Japanese quilt artists and teachers, joined with their students to support the survivors in their quiltmaking efforts. Twenty-nine of their quilts, made to inspire survivors to discover the joy of creation and a dream for the future, will be on exhibit at Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum.

   Curator Miwako Kimura says she is pleased and gratified to exhibit this group of quilts in America. She adds, “We have learned countless patterns and techniques for quiltmaking from your country, and we are thrilled to continue the ‘heartfelt gift in every stitch’ tradition. We sincerely hope you can read our wishes and thoughts, stitched and sewn in these quilts.”

JAN 30-MAR 8: MAP: “CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN”

   Miners Alley Playhouse, 1224 Washington Av, www.minersalley.com 303-935-3044.

   “The Cripple of Inishmaan” by Martin McDonagh, directed by Len Matheo, January 30th – March 8th

   Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN is a comic tale in the great tradition of Irish storytelling. In 1934, the people of Inishmaan learn that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighbouring island to film his documentary Man of Aran. No one is more excited than Billy, an unloved and crippled boy whose chief occupation has been gazing at cows and yearning for a girl who wants no part of him.
Billy is determined to cross the sea and audition for the Yank. As news of his audacity ripples thorugh his rumour-starved community, The Cripple of Inishmaan becomes a portrayal of a world so comically cramped that hope is an affront to its order.
With this uproariously funny dark comedy, Martin McDonagh fulfilled the promise of his award-winning “The Beauty Queen of Leenane” while confirming his place in a tradition that extends from Synge to O’Casey and Brendan Behan.

THRU JAN 24: RMQM: JAPANESE QUILTS AFTER TSUNAMI

From: Irene Berry,Tuesday, September 23, 2014

   Wishes Through Our Hands: Japanese Quilts Made in Response to the 2011 Tsunami – October 30, 2014 through January 24, 2015

   On March 11, 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake occurred only 43 miles of the coast of Japan. It was the most powerful earthquake to have ever hit Japan, and triggered a tsunami with waves that reached heights of up to 133 feet.

   The waves washed away families, homes, and jobs. Many quilts were made in response to the disaster, both by those who wished to comfort the survivors and, later, by survivors who needed hope. Miwako Kimura, Sachiko Yoshida, and Noriko Koyama, three noted Japanese quilt artists and teachers, joined with their students to support the survivors in their quiltmaking efforts. Twenty-nine of their quilts, made to inspire survivors to discover the joy of creation and a dream for the future, will be on exhibit at Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum.

   Curator Miwako Kimura says she is pleased and gratified to exhibit this group of quilts in America. She adds, “We have learned countless patterns and techniques for quiltmaking from your country, and we are thrilled to continue the ‘heartfelt gift in every stitch’ tradition. We sincerely hope you can read our wishes and thoughts, stitched and sewn in these quilts.”

JAN 30-MAR 8: MAP: “CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN”

   Miners Alley Playhouse, 1224 Washington Av, www.minersalley.com 303-935-3044.

   “The Cripple of Inishmaan” by Martin McDonagh, directed by Len Matheo, January 30th – March 8th

   Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN is a comic tale in the great tradition of Irish storytelling. In 1934, the people of Inishmaan learn that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the neighbouring island to film his documentary Man of Aran. No one is more excited than Billy, an unloved and crippled boy whose chief occupation has been gazing at cows and yearning for a girl who wants no part of him.
Billy is determined to cross the sea and audition for the Yank. As news of his audacity ripples thorugh his rumour-starved community, The Cripple of Inishmaan becomes a portrayal of a world so comically cramped that hope is an affront to its order.
With this uproariously funny dark comedy, Martin McDonagh fulfilled the promise of his award-winning “The Beauty Queen of Leenane” while confirming his place in a tradition that extends from Synge to O’Casey and Brendan Behan.

JEFFCO SCHOOLS ON HONOR ROLL FOR PAST

From: Golden Transcript, Dec 11,2014

The Jefferson County School District was named to the Advanced Placement (AP) Honor Roll for its efforts in expanding oppourtunities and improving performance on AP exams.

The distinction was awarded by the College Board and is based upon three years of AP data.

Jeffco is one of 10 schools in Colorado named to the Honor Roll.  In total, 547 school districts across the United States and Canada were recognized.

[Note: The performance judged by the College Board was for years when the schools were run by Cindy Stevenson, before the effects of the new conservatives on the school board were felt.  The new members ran on “reform” – i.e. want to turn around a highly successful school district.  They also want to replace the College Board AP curriculum.  This is exactly why students and others protested – they want to continue having an outstanding district.]

 

NOMINATE FOR CHARITY VIDEO PROJECT

From: Lisa Cozad, Monday, December 08, 2014

Starting December 9, 2014, Oswego Creative, Golden’s local video production company, will host a video project where anyone can nominate their favorite Colorado-based charity to be considered to receive a pro bono, 2-3 minute video production highlighting their cause.

To nominate a local charity or organization, click HERE. Or, simply go onto OswegoCreative.com, click on “About” and then “Charity Video.”  You can nominate both local Colorado-based charities and non-profits.

Nominations will be taken until early March and the winner will be announced the week of March 9, 2015.

DANIELSON APPOINTED TO 3 COMMITTEES
From: Dean Toda, Friday, December 12, 2014 3:16 PM
Rep.-elect Jessie Danielson, D-Wheat Ridge, was appointed to the House Agriculture, Livestock & Natural Resources, Public Health & Human Services and Local Government Committees today by Speaker-designate Dickey Lee Hullinghorst, D-Boulder.
“I’m eager to get going and thrilled with my assignments,” Rep.-elect Danielson said. “I represent Wheat Ridge, Golden, Edgewater, Mountain View, Lakeside and parts of Lakewood and Arvada, so I’m going to be a strong advocate for our local governments. And I was raised on a farm in Weld County, so I won’t be a stranger to the issues brought before the Ag Committee.”
Rep.-elect Danielson will begin her first term representing House District 24 when the House reconvenes in January.

LWV: JEFFCO BOARD OF EDUCATION BUDGET PROCESS 

From: Pat Mesec, 12/09/14

Money, money, money!  Where does the money for Jefferson County Schools actually go?  It will soon be time for the Jefferson County Board of Education to develop the budget for the next fiscal year.  What is the process?  Who will be involved in the process? What are the priorities?

The League of Women Voters of Jefferson County supports policies that promote efficient administrative and financial practices in the Jefferson County School District. To that end we believe that citizen participation on advisory committees should continue throughout the budget process.  Public workshops and hearings should be held early in the budget process and a cross section of the community must be engaged throughout this important process.

It is imperative that information be gathered from a broad sample of Jefferson County citizens.  This broad sample must include all socio-economic levels, age levels, diverse race and ethnic groups, as well as people with and without children. A survey with multiple questions would be the most cost effective and valid method by which to gather such a sample.  Survey questions should be developed by professionals trained in designing surveys that accurately represent the opinions of the community as a whole.

The School District budget must reflect not only the principles and goals of the district but those of the larger community as well. A well-developed budget will reflect careful stewardship of scarce resources.

Patricia F. Mesec, president

League of Women Voters of Jefferson County

THRU JAN 24: RMQM: JAPANESE QUILTS AFTER TSUNAMI

From: Irene Berry,Tuesday, September 23, 2014

   Wishes Through Our Hands: Japanese Quilts Made in Response to the 2011 Tsunami – October 30, 2014 through January 24, 2015

On March 11, 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake occurred only 43 miles of the coast of Japan. It was the most powerful earthquake to have ever hit Japan, and triggered a tsunami with waves that reached heights of up to 133 feet.

The waves washed away families, homes, and jobs. Many quilts were made in response to the disaster, both by those who wished to comfort the survivors and, later, by survivors who needed hope. Miwako Kimura, Sachiko Yoshida, and Noriko Koyama, three noted Japanese quilt artists and teachers, joined with their students to support the survivors in their quiltmaking efforts. Twenty-nine of their quilts, made to inspire survivors to discover the joy of creation and a dream for the future, will be on exhibit at Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum.

Curator Miwako Kimura says she is pleased and gratified to exhibit this group of quilts in America. She adds, “We have learned countless patterns and techniques for quiltmaking from your country, and we are thrilled to continue the ‘heartfelt gift in every stitch’ tradition. We sincerely hope you can read our wishes and thoughts, stitched and sewn in these quilts.”
