In In an election year, Democrats have to nominate candidates, write a platform and organize their ef- fort to get out the vote on Elec- tion Day. On the third Tuesday in March of each even-numbered year, Colorado Democrats hold precinct caucuses at specified lo- cations. Anyone can come to a precinct caucus, but not everyone can vote. In order to vote at any precinct caucus, the elector shall be a resident of the precinct for thirty days, shall have registered to vote no later than twenty-nine days before the caucus, and shall be affiliated with the political par- ty holding the caucus for at least two months as shown on the reg- istraion books of the county and recorder. There are some excep- tions: if you just turned 16 or just became a citizen, you are eligible. At every caucus, the agenda is the same. A person is elected as the chair to run the meeting. Someone else is elected to record the meeting. Two people are elect- ed precinct committee people as they represent their precinct on the IXnocratic Party's county central committee. Delegates are then elected to attend and par- ticipate in the Democratic county assembly. Resolutions and plat- form issues are then introduced, debated and then approved or re- jected. Please continue to watch the newspaper for locations of these free to contact Chairman Randy info or have questions, please feel meetings. If you need any further Arredondo at 719-221-2709. Use Your Library Monday - Thursday 10:00 a.m. - Adventures in Mongolia By Victoria Woodard DAY 28 -- BEASTLY MONGOLIAN INSECTS Last night was co!d, but it did- n't freeze. We got pretty heavy dew, which prompts us to discuss with Muugii how Americans pro- that word. (Patrick says "dyoo" but I say "duo"). Since we are in a valley with no trees in sight, the sun dries everything off quick- ly. I have a scary experience after breakfast. I walk quite a ways away from the camp to a clump of bushes that are about one foot tall. This is the most privacy that I can find for digging a cathole. I'm about to pull up my pants when I see a herd of about sixty horses running down the valley toward me. There is nothing to protect me from being trampled. Fortun- ately, they veer to the west when they see me and thunder by, dri- ven by one boy on horseback. After we break camp, we hed east on the temporary f:ontag :road. We see a big cloud of dust in the valley to the east, coming off the gravel-crus:hing operation for the highway. I sleep most of the day in the front seat, as I find freeways and road construction terminally boring. We stop in Erdenet to shop. We find spices for Hungarian goulash and stock up on our last require- ments of cheese and tinned fish and meat for lunch. Boggy stops the vehicl,e just east of Eflernet and spends a long time on the phone talking with his wife. It's not an attractive place to stop, with the railroad on the left and the copper mine on the right I don't know why he didn't call her earlier while we were shopping. Or maybe he did, and she didn't call back until now. Boggy seems to drive at one speed, whether he's on dirt track or a freeway. We are frustrated at how slowly he drives on this good road east of Erdenet, espec- ially considering how we suffered while he bounced us around at ex- cessive speed on no road earlier in the trip. It seems that he's try- mg to stretch today's journey to Amarbayasgalant Khiid Monastery, since we couldn't go the back way as our itinerary promised, due to flooding creeks. We finally arrive at the monas- tery about 4 p.m. We decide to wait and visit it tomorrow and go for a hike now (this is why we wanted Boggy to drive faster). We camp on a slope above the river, as Seleng, e Province is reputedly very mosquito ridden. Then Jim, Patrick and I head for the top of the hill behind the monas'.ery. The terrain proves to have a lot of calf.high scrub, which is infest-. ed with midges or gnats. They swarm around our faces, which drives me crazy. I finally tie one handkerchief over my head to pro- tect my ears, tie another hand- kerchief across my face to protect my nose, mouth and cheeks, pull my hat down over my forehead, put on my sunglasses to protect my eyes, turn up my collar to protect my neck and put on my gloves. A few bugs still manage to pet in my mouth. All these precautions make up for an unnleasant climb to the top of the hill, but we are rewarded by a breeze on the ridge that kees the bugs away. We glide downhill on the ridge top back toward our camp. It's glorious to be on top of the world. Ridge tops are my favorite place to hike. When we arrive in camp, Bog- gy jumps when he sees me look- ing like a bandit. I pull off the bandanas and discover that my forehead is covered with bites be- tween my eyebrows and my hat. Jim and Patrick didn't get any bites. Life's not fair. We sta cooking Hungarian goulash with our new spices, can- ned kidney beans, onions, bell peppers and tomatoes. We also cook curried cabbage and serve both over millet. This millet cooks perfectiy (unlike the former batca . In the middle of cooking, black clouds blow over and terrible gusts of wind buffet us. Patrick nails down the tent and holds onto it, and we all chase trash, clothes and ingredients across the mea- dow. It rains a little, but not too much, and the dinner turns out extremely well--if a little late. The sun seems to set, and then suddenly there it is again, sliding north down the side of a peak a- cross the valley from us. Our tent is in a beautiful little flower gar- den. Everywhere we walk it smells like thyme.
