The land on Kodiak was a dia- mond in the rough for Dad and me. There were no fences or barns when we got here, and hay fields needed to be made. It looked like a pretty cool adventure!

The guys are roping team buddies, and Chris often makes the trip out to my family's ranch in San Obispo, California. Ran was teaching a roping clin- ic on the island, and I decided to visit. No one had to twist my arm. I love riding horses, and the photo opportunities are pentiful. The area has high, rugged and vividly green mountains, lush mea- dows, flowing rivers and bays, and some of the most scenic and wild wilderness country that ever ex- isted. The day I visited, I helped the guys drive some cattle Chris had supplied to a rodeo. It was tricky, yet empowering, leading the cat- tle through rushing rivers and back ,to their pasture. But we worked hard and played hard, too!

These' unforunate events are a FISHING direct resultof the con0micldown- turn. State and local-governments are financially strapped and forc- ed to make painful budget Cuts. Saguache County is no exception. County funding currently covers only a portion of what it costs to operate our public library in Sag- uache. It is a continuing struggl to make up the difference, with private and public grants, inc!ad- ing county sales tax grants; , and massive donations of volunteer hourS, dollars and books:: This effort is not sustainable. The alternative is to orm a li- brary district, funded ty a small property tax that will ensure sta- ble and adequate library funding-- independent of political or econ- omic factors affectirg local gov- ernment. Nearly half the libraries in Colo- rado now are operated as library districts, including neighboring li- braries in Rio Grade County, Gun- nison County, N3rthern Chaffee County, Southern Chaffee County and Conejos Cou;aty. ,These libraries, in contrast to those operated by cities or coun- ties, are thriviag. Voters, recog- nizing the value for the dollar that libraries provide, have over- whelmingly st,ported the crea- tion of new library districts every year. Friends of the Saguache County Library will begin circulating pet- itions this week, asking that for- mation of the Northern Saguache County Library District (NSCLD) be placed on the November 2010 election ballot. Voters in the Mountain Valley and Moffat school districts, at the same time, will be asked to ap- prove a 5 mill levy to support the district. The cost will be ap- proximately $3.25 per month for the owner of a $100,000 home. The new district, if approved by voters, will operate both the Saguache Library and the Baca Grande Library, now funded by the Baca Grande Property Ow- ners Association. Each library will retain its own autonomy and un- Ique character, but both will bene- fit from the sharing of materials and resources. With passage of the NSCLD in- iative, Saguache library staff hope to increase library hours, expand programs and services, and im- prove outreach to outlying com- munities. Friends of the Library believe that a thriving public li- brary is key to economic revital- ization and quality of life.
