have been trying to write a more complete set of rules,
but apparently it is complicated.
The new Senate bill tries to establish a stronger
doctor/patient relationship. In the past it was legal for
dispensaries to pay doctors for their services, but the
new bill will stop that. Now doctors can apparently
only charge patients. The House version of the new
marijuana legislation gives counties and towns the
right to ban dispensaries, and Thursday Martin said
Dolores County is working toward a moratorium.
Town Board members did not move that direction
Thursday, leaving the subject before taking any action.
When it came time for Sheriff Martin’s report,
Mayor Dean Schlegel told him that a trailer house had
been moved to a lot at Fourth and Pine earlier in the
day Thursday. As the discussion progressed, someone
said it was the same trailer that had been parked
several blocks east of its present location. The owner
had attempted to get electricity and the Town had
issued a variance under the condition that it would
have to have electricity to remain in town. When the
effort to get electricity failed, the trailer was moved
outside the city limits, but now it is back.
When Martin left the meeting he said he would
investigate. He called a few minutes later and said the
owner doesn’t intend to keep the trailer in town, but
wanted a week to get the contents moved to the trailer
that lives on the lot full time.
The Board decided a week might be a little long and
set a deadline of Monday, May 24 at noon.

request. He said his daughter has a sheep as an FFA
Michael Fury was planting sunflowers west of Dove Creek this week project and asked for a variance to keep it in town until

Notes fro m the Nest - - -
by Maggie Tevault
Last week was Baby Week at the Dove’s Nest.
We started the week with a special Dinosaur School
where we met Dina the Dinosaur’s baby. We talked
about how to take care of babies and how we always treat them gently. We
then talked about how babies need names and helped Dina name her baby
Suzie Tinkerbell Dinosaur. On Thursday we held a baby shower for Ms.
Prentael who will soon be going on maternity leave. We wrapped presents
and decorated our playroom. The kids enjoyed some games, a cake, and
of course helping Ms. Prentael unwrap presents. We’d like to thank all of
the families who donated gifts and helped to make the shower really spe-
We’re getting ready to start our summer program. We’ll be learning
about dinosaurs and taking a field trip to the Dinosaur Museum in Bland-
ing. We’ll talk about the different kinds of dinosaurs that existed and the
environment that they lived in. We’ll also continue to attend karate, have
outside water-play day on Fridays (as soon as it stops snowing!), and in-
clude our Incredible Years curriculum throughout the summer.
We’ve just started on Unit 6 of the curriculum which teaches friend-
ship skills such as helping others at home and school, saying please and
thank you, recognizing and respecting individual differences, sharing with
friends and teamwork. We look forward to reviewing skills from earlier
units such as understanding feelings, problem solving, and conflict reso-
lution with our group of summer kids. For more information on our sum-
mer program, contact the Dove’s Nest at 677-2850.
