ONE OF THE PUEBLO COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT'S K9 HAS DIED AND A MEMORIAL SERVICE IS SCHEDULED FOR "PC" FOR JANUARY 18TH - The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the loss of one of its K9s, “PC”, who died December 27, 2018, after a brief battle with cancer. PC, an 11-year-old Dutch Shepherd, with his handler, Master Deputy Brandon Talton, provided many years of faithful and dedicated service to the citizens of Pueblo County.

A public Memorial Service to honor PC and his duty to law enforcement is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Friday, January 18, at the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office, Emergency Services Center, 101 W. 10th Street.

PC was donated to the Sheriff’s Office in 2009 by retired Sgt. Vic Boley. He was trained to protect the deputies, search buildings for suspects, track suspects or lost individuals and search out drugs and evidence. He was involved in 345 deployments in his nearly 9 ½ years with the Sheriff’s Office, the majority of which were vehicle or building narcotic searches.

During his tenure, PC was involved in the seizure of 101 pounds of illegal drugs to include marijuana (prior to legalization), cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin, seven vehicles and 12 guns.

PC also was a full-time SWAT dog, working with SWAT members on how K9s can be an asset to that team. PC, one of three K9s at the Sheriff’s Office, participated with Deputy Talton and placed in several United States Police Canine Association Trials through the years.

“PC was not only my friend and partner but he had made an impact on so many other lives. PC made so many friends in the community through public demonstrations and the media,” said Deputy Talton. “K9 PC will be greatly missed by my family, my blue family and most of all by me. It was such an honor to be K9 PC’s handler and best friend.”

WINTER SEED STARTING INDOORS IN PUEBLO - PART I OF A SERIES ON GROWING YOUR OWN PRODUCE / HOMESTEADING PUEBLO - For those of you wanting to get a head start on growing some of your own produce this year, you can start seeds indoors under grow lights during the next few months, with some plants started now.

To time our plantings, we have to look at frost dates - here's our dates provided by the Farmers Almanac for this year for Pueblo. From the last estimated spring frost until the first frost, May 2-Oct 6, we'll have an estimated 156 days of outdoor gardening here. But you've all heard what natives of Pueblo say, don't plant anything outdoors until Mother's Day... here's why (and read the screen shot, there's a 30 percent chance of being off):

The last average frost date" simply means that the odds are good it won't drop below 32° F. but after that date, it still can drop below freezing. Many long time locals, who have planted early have experienced a loss of new plants, so they just wait. So don't think of our think of our May 2nd "last frost" date as more an omen to plant anything. But it is a good time to put starts of cool-weather lovers like lettuce and spinach, which burn up in our heat.

Serious local gardeners have figured out ways to keep their new plantings safe by just waiting until Mother's Day to plant - or by extending the growing season by starting plants indoors and rather than planting them, they'll move them inside and out as the weather permits in the Spring - or will keep them safe in greenhouses or using other products to cover them if it gets too cold.

Summer plants like tomatoes, peppers, which are very popular in Pueblo County and grow well during the summer months, despise nighttime temps below 50 degrees, but they can be started indoors this time of year. Experienced local gardeners always wait until nighttime temps are reliably in the 50s to plant them outdoors.

When you look at seed packets, you'll need to understand "days to maturity." The number on seed packets helps you figure out if you can start them indoors or "direct sow" them into your garden. For direct-sown crops like peas, beans, corn and lettuces, "days to maturity" refers to the number of days from your planting the seed in warm soil until you can pick and eat your food.

With seeds you pre-start indoors however, the number would refer to the days after you put six week old starts in the ground. For example if you have tomato seeds that say 65 days, that's six weeks of growth inside, then 65 days in the ground, plus a week for the seeds to germinate in the beginning. So that "65 day tomato" really takes about 115 days from when you plant the seed until you enjoy eating it.

Here's ideas of what you can start indoors in the next few months for your own and rewarding bountiful producem, with tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, melons, winter squash and zucchini, as the classics, because they take a long time to go from seed to your dinner table):

1. Lettuce and spinach - Your first runs of lettuce and spinach can be started inside (or purchased as starts), and then transplanted outside as soon as the soil can be worked. But later runs should be started directly outdoors, as soon as the soil is warm enough to germinate the seed.

2. Broccoli can be started indoors, so it can be transplanted out with enough growing time to develop a nice sized head before the weather gets too hot. Start the seeds indoors four to six weeks before the time to set out the seedlings, which you should calculate as two weeks before the date of the last expected frost.

3. Brussel Sprouts - They can be started indoors like broccoli for an early harvest and a second crop can be sown outdoors at the usual time.

4. Cabbage - Early cabbage can be sown indoors five to eight weeks before the last expected frost, or wait and buy early cabbage from seedlings bought at a nursery.

5. Cauliflower - Start cauliflower seeds indoors six to eight weeks before the last expected frost. Sow the seeds in individual pots, three or four seeds to a pot. Keep the seedlings in sunny, cool spot.

6. Peas - Pea plants take about 60 to 70 days to produce their first pods. The seeds can be started indoors in peat pots then put outdoors early in the spring season if you want an early start.

7. Cucumbers - Cucumbers can be started indoors in individual peat pots two to three weeks before the last expected frost. Seedlings will be ready to be transplanted outdoors in three or four weeks.

8. Leeks - Leeks take 130 days to mature, so the seeds should be sown indoors unless you purchase starts locally. Start them 10 to 12 weeks before the date of the last expected frost.

9. Lettuce - varieties of lettuce can be started indoors about six weeks before the ground can be worked. They can be sown outdoors early too.

10. Onions - Onions take three to five months to mature from seed, although scallions can be harvested as early as two months after sowing. So they can be started inside. Onions take several months to grow large enough to transplant outdoors, but they have a high success rate and if you grow your own, you can better choose from onion varieties then are available from nurseries.

11. Peppers - A Pueblo favorite, most peppers can be started indoors from seeds about eight weeks before the date of the last expected frost. Sow seeds in individual pots, placing three seeds, ¼ inch deep, in each pot. Keep the containers in a warm location inside, of about 70-75 degrees.

12. Tomatoes - Seeds should be sown indoors about eight weeks before the date of the last expected frost in your area. Sow them 1/8 deep in flats or pots, and when the seedlings are about 1 inch tall, transplant them to individual 3- or 4- inch pots.

13. Celery and parsley - Celery and parsley seeds need several weeks just to germinate, so you can start them indoors.

14. And more - Growing sprouts is another option, as they germinate fast, and also an indoor herb garden.

When you feel comfortable sowing seeds outside, and again you can start the cold crops early, those that are typically are grown in rows and include salad greens (again, the first run can be started inside), carrots, peas, beans and corn.

If you want a head start, you can however start beans and corn inside to help them sprout before it gets to hot here.

For flower starting in January, try Laurentia, Lobelia, Begonia, Geranium (Pelargonium), Dianthus (Carnations/Pinks), pansies, sweet peas, dusty miller, snap dragons indoors under lights, as they are slow to flower from seed.

You can still try to head outdoors and plant daffodil and tulip bulbs you didn't get into the ground last fall. If the bulbs have remained firm and you get enough of a chill, you could get flowers this year.

To start seeds indoors and to be a success, follow the instructions on your seed packets, invest in a good soil mix intended for seed starting and bright artificial grow lights. Here's a list of free garden catalogs you can order and plan your gardenn now - https://www.almanac.com/content/garden-seed-catalogs-mail

Some of the information gathered herein was from the Readers Digest gardening guide, other sources include the Farmer's Almanac, seed packets, talks with local gardeners and my own experience. Feel free to comment, this is part I of a series of those of us wanting to enjoy fresh grown produce this year - JP

EIGHTY YEARS AGO A MAN FROM PUEBLO WAS EXECUTED FOR THE MURDER OF A SCHOOL GIRL - IN 2011 HE WAS PARDONED - Posted by the Arc of Pueblo, "80 years ago, on January 6, 1939, Joe Arridy, a man from Pueblo with developmental disabilities, was executed for the murder of a Pueblo schoolgirl. 72 years after his death, in 2011, he was pardoned as evidence had come to light that his confession had been coerced and he was likely nowhere near Pueblo at the time of the murder."

Do world leaders with history always act as reliable partners? When considering whether it is worth cooperating with a commercial company people ordinarily rely upon its merits, primarily its successful experience. Do they really do right following such a common way of choosing the partner to share business together? The #Austrian #Pewag company is well-known all over the world as one of the biggest manufacturers and distributors of chains for diverse purposes (www.pewag.com, CEO and owner Mr. A. #Pengg) Founded 300 years ago the company has had many factories (#Austria, CzechRepublic, #PuebloUSA) and representative offices throughout the world by now (one of which was located in Almaty, a large industrial center in the Republic of Kazakhstan. In 2016 keeping on doing business in Kazakhstan the company suddenly ceased complying with its obligations under previously signed agreements. In particular, the company management ceased to pay taxes and rent in a most irresponsible manner. It looked like the company bosses had just lost sight of their representative office in the city of Almaty. Several civil lawsuits were filed against the Pewag company in the Almaty court, Republic of #Kazakhstan. The court ruled in favor of the plaintiff and ordered the defendant to re-register the legal entity and pay damages, including taxes and rent for the office space the company had used for its commercial purposes for a long time. It is interesting to note that Company officials did not even consider it necessary to attend the court hearings. However, nothing has changed since then. The Pewag company representatives continue refusing to comply with the courts' decisions. It should be stressed that the above company is considered a world leader with history, not a small company started a couple of years ago of which nobody has ever heard! In summary, sometimes international companies well-known throughout the world only act on the basis of their own interests in complete disregard of the principles and norms of ow world-wide and local laws. This sad fact is a matter of great concern for those who one day decided to cooperate with such partners.
