San Miguel Basin Forum, Thursday, June 1. 1989 - 5 q excerpted from Farmington Daffy Times David McKeever, former Norwood resident and now a life sciences teacher at Aztec (NM) High School, wants to change people's attitudes about nature. When he began work on his Master's thesis two years ago, David came up with the idea of a nature trail that would show students the wide variety of life that exists in the desert regions around Aztec. "People usually drive along and think there is nothing out here. But once you stop and take a close look, there are a lot of things going on. The most common comment we get is that people did not realize there was so much out there," he said. The object of the trail was to create something that could be used in the class- room both now and in the future, rather than Just writ- ing a paper on plant life that would do nothing but collect Nucla Elementary Fourth Quarter Honor Roll Fourth Grade: Michelle Bouwkamp*, Matt Brown, Trenton Brlckey*, Robert Yates *, Brian Kelley, Luke Odom.

The traff, with markers along the path teaching about the plant life, geology and history of the area, runs for more than a mile.

Plant life in the area is uniquely adapted to the low rainfall, high winds and poor soil conditions. Today, with skyrocketing bills be- At the May 18 meeting of the San Mlguel County Com- missioners the county's budget director was given authorization to make ap- plication through Colorado Counties (CCI) for financing to possibly purchase space in the Daved Building. The county has been strapped for space, and in fact had to move the Sheriff's office, and has been considering the third floor of the Daved Building for some time. Also at the meeting the commissioners approved a special use permit applied for by US West to place microwave repeaters on Wil- son Mesa; approved amend- ments to the flood plain regulations; and approved liquor licenses for Freida An- nette Deweese dba Basin Store for retail sales and on- premises consumption. Terry Starr was reap- pointed to the Board of Ad- Justment and the county will advertise another vacancy on that board. Bids were opened for the 1989 bridge replacement project which includes those at Placerville and Camp Ilium.

The May 31 meeting agen- da has been amended to con- tinue into an evening session at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the Idarado cleanup. The county signed a con- tract with the State for an Alternative Game Ranching study to be made this fall by County Extension Agent Bob Bishop. The State Depart- ment of Agriculture has given Bishop a grant of $3,600 to do the study and the county will provide in- kind matching funds of about $4,000. Bishop will take a three- month sabbatical as exten- sion agent from October through December to make a study of the cost of produc- tion and marketing of elk, deer, buffalo, even cashmere goat production, to deter- mine economic feasibility for the area.
