I have closely followed.the work at the Zeigler site; I was lucky enough to bring my archaeology class to view the finds during excavation this fall. I don't know who was more excited my students, the other faculty who joined us, or myself. This unique discovery offers many opportunities to further our understanding of prehistory in the Snowmass Village area, as well as educating the public on the value of these finds. My background in education and the presentation of traditional and non-traditional programs offer a wide array of abilities in designing and organizing educational offerings. While my background and degrees are in archaeology, my studies allow me to explore many areas of interest. Through my archaeology background, I am trained in fieldwork and the process of examining prehistory. I have designed and instructed courses in the field of archaeology, both in the classroom and through traveling to areas of interest throughout the Southwestern US. Mexico, and Peru. i co-developed Colorado Mountain College's Anthropology Emphasis program, which is offered as an AA degree. I have worked closely with museums to cooperatively offer tours and information tomystudents, The Snowmass Village finds offer an exceptional Opportunity for CMO and the Town of Snowmass Village to collaborate with the Denver Museurn of Nature and Science. Together, we can present educational programs of national significance. Colorado Mountain College has much to offer the Town of Snownlass Village as well as the DMNS, including local experts in complimentary fields, access to basic laboratories, educational programming, and use of facilities for public lectures and professional seminars. CMC students will also benefit from opportunities to assist in fieldwork, attend lectures and seminars, and to present information to the public aa well-informed docents and Wurguides. was born and raised in Glenwood Springs and have watched our area progress from local ranching hu world class skiing, |hava also seen nearby areas struggle 0o develop a sustainable economy, K8y focus is not only on education but also on the need to market the information gained frorn paleontological and archaeological sites. Fieldwork is expensive. The promotion of the Ziegler Reservoir site may offer an additional revenue stream by encouraging year-round tourism in cooperation with tasteful educational programming.

The excitement generated by the discoveries at Ziegler Reservoir seems an ideal draw to attract people of all ages to the geology exhibited in Snowmass and the surrounding areas. It will be important to provide a scientifically accurate presentation of the finds. The Museum of Nature and Science is a wonderful resource for accurate and exciting information. As they have shown in their approach to date, good science is exciting and fun. Displays at various locations and /or at a museum could enhance the appreciation of the bone finds and local geologic features that surround Snowmass Village. The bone discoveries are exciting in their own right, but take on even more meaning when put into a paleontological and geological context. A self guided tour of exhibits, and guided tours could become a year -round draw for families and people of all ages. Special events utilizing the excitement of the discoveries and the various animals as a motif would also attract people of all ages. As Property Manager at Chamonix Condominiums I appreciate the possibilities the discovery opens for enhanced vitality in Snowmass Village. This is a very exciting opportunity for Snowmass Village!

The ice age ecosystem uncovered at Ziegler Reservoir is fascinating, and I would love to be a part of the team that brings this discovery to the public and utilizes the opportunity in the best interests of Snowmass Village. I believe I can make a significant contribution in this position due to my academic background and years of experience as an educator. My formal training in educational theory, natural science, and natural history gives me the knowledge base needed for this role. In ten years of teaching preschoolers through adults I have become intimately familiar with the educational needs of a variety of ages. As Education Director at Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES), I have the benefit of collaborating with amazing colleagues to create programs that disseminate science information to visitors and locals. The primary aspect of my job at ACES is to design and implement environmental education and science programs, which are an integral part of the curriculum of the area schools. I believe that my experience and training in education, the support of my colleagues, and my connections to the local schools would greatly benefit this committee. Thank you for your time and the opportunity to apply for this seat. I look forward to speaking with you more about this position.

This is my career. I love teaching, creating curriculum, and thinking of creative ways to engage the public in learning. I have the opportunity to do this daily as Education Director of ACES. I also have the benefit of collaborating with knowledgeable colleagues to design and implement curriculum that makes complicated science more easily understood. At ACES, we have already incorporated the new Snowmass discoveries into our curriculum and look forward to creating more lessons that integrate the Pleistocene finds. My schooling has prepared me for the Education Seat of the Ice Age Discovery Committee. I have a Master's in Natural Science and Environmental Education and a Bachelor's in Art Education. With the opportunity to be a part of the committee, this combination of art and science would allow me to contribute creative ideas while remaining true to the science and natural history. Why do you wish to be appointed to this position? The ice age discovery is a wonderful opportunity for Snowmass Village to share a local treasure with residents and visitors. It has the great potential of being another draw to the area and an inspiration for people to learn more about natural history, paleoecology, and climate changes. I want to be instrumental in making this happen. From the first news story on the discovery, I was extremely excited. When the Denver Museum came in and began doing their daily updates, ACES staff would start the day with watching the new daily video. The Snowmass Water and Sanitation District was so kind to let the ACES' staff visit the dig site. I felt fortunate to be able to be on the ground watching the scientists in action. I would love the opportunity to use education to bring that feeling of excitement, mystery, time, and change to visitors and residents of Snowmass Village.

Box 5010 Snowmass Village, CO 81615 Dear Council Members; I would like to be considered for appointment to one of the education positions on the Ice Age Task Force. Although my main career was in corporate pension sales, my early career path focused on prehistoric archeology, particularly the Pleistocene. As a second career, I worked in print journalism in Dallas, Texas, and the Roaring Fork Valley. I am actively involved in the community as a member of the Basalt Planning and Zoning Commission and Chairman of the Basalt Kilns Committee. The committee is an ad -hoc, citizens group that generates community involvement and advises the town on the preservation of the historic charcoal kilns in Arbaney Park. I assisted town staff in preparing grant applications that resulted in over $240,000 of matching funds from the Colorado State Historical Fund. Since my Ice Age activities ended over 40 years ago, my interest is to be of assistance to the person appointed to lead the education task force or the Ice Age Discovery Committee education position.

I am a firm believer in lifelong learning for all and this program has the potential to reach a broad range of people to that end. I am a dedicated teacher who enjoys bringing subject matter to life for my students in this case, the target audience would be young and, old, paleontology buffs and the curious child who resides in all of us. Developing a complimentary identity for Snowmass is a worthy and rewarding challenge. As a teacher, I know how to deliver content that is both meaningful and understandable. Combined with my marketing and communications background, I am a candidate you should consider. I have experience teaching in both Aspen and down valley schools. I am a team player who brings great enthusiasm to every endeavor I pursue. It would be both a pleasure and honor to be part of this program. I look forward to the opportunity to talk with you further. 4 L- L Christy Smith Christy Ann Smith Box 5314, Snowmass Village, CO 81615 970 987 -3464 csmithl90 @aol.com PROFILE: Career experiences in education, marketing, business management, writing and advocating for individuals with disabilities.

COVER LETTER Dear Staff, It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I a P P l y for the IADC seat F f s of "Citizen at Large'. Ever since the first discovery, 1 have been like a lit tle boy back in grade school two of my favorite subjects were paleontology i and arc h eology. Iwould Jump at the chance to discuss these subjects, con struct dioramas, draw pictures and sculpt the ancient creatures. i consider 7 7 this find a town treasure and would be so proud to represent it on the newly "4 formed committee. i believe the position for which I am appl requires an extensive, almost encyclopedic knowledge of all the fauna and flora discow- cries in order to properly dialog with adults and museum staff, yet also pos- k secs astoryteller's ability to lay it out and explain in plain and simple lan- guage for our most important audience, the children and students. �r My five years of "Storytelling b y the Campfire" has equipped me for such a role. Through the learning and complete memorization of great stories and poems I completely entertained my audience and was written up locally and even achieved a proud spot in the L os Angeles Times in the travel sec- tion. It's popularity is indisputable with crowds reaching 90 at its peak. My military experience as a tactical interrogator affords me the skills to ask the right questions so as to accurately understand, dissect and convey the technical data and filter it appropriately to the general public. The entire experience must be educational, entertaining and fascinating. N I t As far as my contacts are concerned, I have many friends and acquaintan- ces who are first year residents, young adults who attended local schools, business owners, our most senior residents as well as town officials, adminis- trators and law enforcement. I have interviewed with W ater Fy Sanitation director K Ha and h e has strongly indicated a security role for me and my security company starting in the S pri ng for th Ziegler Site. Veteran Security Company is a Snow mass Village licensed business and puts me right smack in the middle er d 011 of the anaerobic action( Wkat could be better than to 6e working, day to day, at the site for which i am appointed to represent. The best of bot worlds "Ice Age" and "Modern". p. Qne last skill and advantage I have spent the last two years developing is .�K as a researc specialist for Marty Stouffer Productions, American Wild- life Project; a global philanthropic educational initiative designed to bring CAUTION the fascinating world of M arty's life's work to children's museums, hospitals, A ir schools and numerous other educational venues for the purpose of expand MASTODON CROSSI ing interest and knowledge of (North American wildlife among students of all ages. M y duties included researching and compiling contact data on the wealthiest people on the planet. I produced many spreadsheets and per- formed mass mailings to p otential donors in over 30 countries world -wide. am not intimidate b l arge projects and consistently meet deadlines with f ri gh tenin g accuracy. in 2009 my efforts at grant writing garnered a $25,000 award from the Ted Turner Foundation, $5,000 of which we do- nated to the Little }Zed School H ouse. I pride myself on getting results. It is with confidence and conviction that i submit this packet for your consid- eration. I believe I am ready to take on a community role of this importance ..'`a�.r';., x and responsibility. I have made many positive and wholesome choices in my life recently and will commit my full consciousness and intelligence to this once -in -a- lifetime opportunity if selected.

Snowmass Town Council 12/12/2010 To whom it concerns, It is my intention and desire to serve on the Ice Age Discovery committee to assist in utilizing this amazing find for the good of the community. The preservation and exploration of this resource is and will be a most significant asset to Snowmass. The science and significance of this discovery is an opportunity for Snowmass Village to establish itself as a stand alone community, capable of generating a year round economy for its businesses and residence. As a destination resort we are more than just the little sister of the Aspen Skiing Company and much more than just a winter resort area. It is imperative to develop this event as a marketing tool because it will unequivocally define the future of Snowmass. To develop a year round tourist attraction with special attention to the science and environmental concerns in conjunction with filling beds, restaurants and retail establishments is a delicate task fraught with many diverse concerns. There is a need for the town to collectively work towards a common goal with direct input from the Snowmass community. The Town, in cooperation with DMNS, the State of Colorado and Snowmass Water and Sanitation District are now charged with"making decisions which will greatly affect the future of Snowmass Village. I have owned and operated an incorporated business (Thotic Shops Inc.), in Snowmass since 1982 and have been a periodic resident since 1975.1 have extensive experience conducting lecture /seminars for Masterfit University (15yrs) a ski industry training center and have traveled globally teaching to large groups. I have watched Snowmass develop as a resort, been here through lean and prosperous times, I have raised a family here, my son currently enrolled as a sophomore at Aspen High School. My community service history in the valley is a diverse, eclectic blend including but not limited to; Captain medic/ firefighter Carbondale Fire 10yrs, Coach Aspen Junior Hockey 25 yrs, former President, Kings Row Homeowners Assoc., board member Parks and Recreation, Carbondale, parent adviser Aspen High School Parkour club as well as Snowmass community advocate /volunteer builder of the Snowmass Rodeo Ice rink. I'm a contributing freelance writer/ photographer for the local papers. I have lectured at the Aspen Sports medicine institute and written articles for the Aspen Orthopaedic Associates magazine, as well as others. I currently reside outside the TOSV, a victim of economic circumstances, however I have always considered myself a member of this community. I would be honored if you would consider selecting me as a member of this board.

Enclosed please find my application for the Committee's Citizen at Large position, along with my resume. Given my experience at the intersection of the areas relevant to the goals you set for the Committee, I would bring a uniquely holistic perspective to the Committee. Recall that, while discussing the holistic perspective underlying my comments to you last month, I spoke about my background of being a decades -long member of the Snowmass Village community; serving on town advisory boards for half a decade; working in the areas of science, education, policymaking /advocacy, non profit management, and development; having degrees in law and business, with a marketing major; and raising two Semi Professional Scientists. As you have heard and seen, recently and over the years, I am a consensus builder with strong communication skills and extensive community service and professional experience. I have a track- record of successfully working with others on -site and virtually, from across the country; these skills will be critical to the success of a community -based Committee whose members (including museum personnel) may come from a geographic area stretching beyond the Roaring Fork Valley. When it comes to Snowmass Village, I am community- centric. My time, efforts and elbow grease help further Snowmass Village's aspiration to be "the leading multiseason, family- oriented inclusive mountain resort community." As a member of this Committee, I would continue to serve as a "constructive conduit to a broad spectrum" and to do so for the benefit of Snowmass Village and the broader community.

S (�t6�013 16 Bill Boineau, Fred Kucker, John Wilkinson, Jason Haber, Markey Butler Refer; Ice Age Task Force- application The discovery of the ice age bones is a true gift to the town of Snowmass Village. Our Town has taken a good first step by working with the Denver Museum of Nature and Science to properly develop the significance of this discovery and to record and publish the scientific significance of this discovery. The town council call for volunteers to help develop a long term way forward and act as a conduit for community input is a very good next step. I would like to be considered for the Ice age task force and hereby submit my application for your consideration. I have met most of you while in the process of our HOA Snowmass Mountain Condos, applying for a PUD to replace our wall /road and upgrade our property. The amended PUD has been approved with your help and direction. Thank You. Let me formally introduce myself: I am a full time TOSV resident serving on the board of directors of Snowmass Mountain Condo Association for the last 7 years. Currently I am serving as Vice President. My education consists of a BS in Chemical Engineering and a Masters degree in Engineering with a minor in business. I was employed by American Cyanamid for 38 years and retired in 1991. Since then I have served as President of the board of trustees of a Continuing Care Retirement Community of 375 residents for 8 years until I moved to Colorado. I have also served on the United States Golf Association Green Section Committee for 10 years. While In that role, and as Board member of Mendham Golf Club I helped and directed my country club to advance environmentally to achieve certification as a bird sanctuary by the Audubon Society. My experience with American Cyanamid was engineering and management consisting of the development and manufacture of auto exhaust catalyst that significantly decreased hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide polluting from auto exhaust. Later, I was in charge of international industrial chemical marketing and ended my career as a CEO and Chairman of a Japanese company. My involvement with "not for profit" community work such as, the Snowmass Mountain HOA, a retirement community CCRC, USGA, and Mendham Golf Club, has given me experience in working with diverse groups in bringing together ideas and laying out recommendations. Believe this experience may be helpful to The Ice Age Task Force. My engineering and scientific education will also help me understand the scientific issues of this discovery. My marketing experience may be helpful in presenting displays to our Snowmass Village visitors. Thank for your consideration.

Box 5010 Snowmass Village, CO 81615 via e -mail to Rhonda Coxon at rcoxon @tosv.com December 10, 2010 RE: Ice Age Discovery Committee Application Dear Mayor Boineau and Town Council: Please let this letter serve as an indication of my interest in serving on the newly created Ice Age Discovery Committee (IADC). It is my understanding that the IADC will be charged with developing an educational /communication plan for the discovery; will create a preliminary budget for capital and operational needs; will develop a fundraising plan; and will serve as a sounding board for community input, ideas, and suggestions. I am confident that my experience establishing a historical museum, serving as a historic preservation officer, and being a Village resident for 14 years makes me well- suited to serve on the committee. Attached is my resume that summarizes my applicable experience. As the former Director of Community Development for the City of Aspen, I was responsible for capital and operational budgets, as well as managing a staff of 15, including the Historic Preservation Officer. A large focus of my work in Aspen, and as Historic Preservation Officer and then Community Development Director in Central City, was historic preservation. I worked closely with the State Historical Society and the State Historic Fund (Central City was one of three communities that contributed funds for historic preservation grants through its gaming revenues), and worked for the Colorado Historical Society in the designation of the Denver Parks and Parkways nomination to the National Register. My other National Register experience was the designation of my residence in Idaho Springs. Clearly, the find at Ziegler Reservoir is worthy of not only the National Registry, but the UNESCO World Heritage registry as well, as a place of special cultural or physical significance. I am confident that I can assist the Community in investigating these opportunities. My museum experience dates back to when I was living in Idaho Springs, and served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Historical Society of Idaho Springs. During my tenure on the Board, we developed the new Heritage Museum. Built in 1991, the Heritage Museum exhibits a number of artifacts from the 1860's to the 1940's that tell the story of the discovery of gold in 1859 and the resulting rush that transformed the Clear Creek valley. My interest in Historic Preservation dates back to the mid 80's while working on my Master's Thesis in Landscape Architecture. As part of that work, I researched the writings and design work of landscape architects Olmsted, Downing, Jensen and DeBoer and applied their teachings to create a native landscape approach to the Genesee area west of Golden, CO. I have been a member of the National Trust for Historic Preservation since that time. I believe my historic experience combined with my understanding of the native landscape will contribute well to the IADC's work. I am specifically applying for the Construction /Development Position on the Committee. Please let me know if there is any further information I can provide you. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

PURPOSE: The purpose of this discussion is to obtain the Town Council's direction and approval on the enclosed recommendations for next step objectives, task force structure, and a process for realizing the full potential of the ice age discovery (consider this a temporary label for the discovery) for the benefit of the Snowmass Village resort community. 2. BACKGROUND On November 15` Dr. Kirk Johnson from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and Kit Hamby Doug Throm from the Water and Sanitation District provided a summary of the exciting and evolving archeological finds at the Ziegler Reservoir. At this meeting the Town Council directed staff to develop a structure for taking the next steps in communicating the story of the Ice Age discovery. Also at this meeting several roles were clarified: Snowmass Water and Sanitation District "District"): The District owns the land below the reservoir site which is surrounded by private land owned by the Ziegler Family. This land is located just outside of the Town of Snowmass Village in Pitkin County. The Reservoir site is where the artifacts were discovered. Denver Museum of Nature Science "Denver Museum The Denver Museum is an official repository for the State of Colorado for artifacts discovered on public property. The reservoir is public property because it is owned by the District. Therefore, the State of Colorado owns the bones discovered at the reservoir. The Denver Museum deployed its scientists to excavate the discovery. The Denver Museum will provide the scientific interpretation of the natural history of the site. Town of Snowmass Village "Town The role of the Town is not legally defined, but has the opportunity and responsibility to the community to communicate the story provided by the scientists of The Denver Museum. The District has indicated its desire to have the Town take the lead to determine the next steps for communicating the story and marketing this opportunity. Staff would suggest that it is important to continue close communication and coordination with both the District and the Denver Museum as plans evolve for both construction and archeological excavation of the site next summer. 3. RECOMENDATIONS Input was provided by many interested parties in the community on next steps. The Council also acknowledged the ideas provided by Ms. Colleen Doyle from the Part-Time Residents Advisory Board. Staff attempted to synthesize the many ideas provided to the Town to achieve a coherent, focused process. Creating a task force with a specific set of objectives is proposed. It is suggested that when those objectives are achieved, the structure may evolve based on the recomendations from the Task Force and the direction of the Council. A. Objectives of the Task Force 1) Develop a proposed educational /communication plan (i.e. business plan) for the discovery. The Task Force should think holistically about the discovery in conjunction with other educational /scientific opportunities. This would include a preliminary budget for any capital and operational needs for the project. This plan should also provide recommendations on sites and facilities for the discovery. 2) The Task Force would also provide a recommendation on whether a new or different organizational structure is needed to implement the business plan. In addition, the Task Force should provide a recommendation on the branding going forward. The reference in this memorandum to Ice Age Discovery is only a transitional name. The Task Force may want to recommend a different reference. 3) Develop a fundraising and /or capital campaign strategy to implement the educational /communications plan for the discovery. 4) The task force will be the conduit for community input, ideas, and suggestions on the discovery. B. Composition of the Task Force It is recommended that a task force be created to include individuals /resources with specific skills described below. Realizing the full potential of this discovery will start with science and then education will provide the outlet for communicating this discovery. Other skills are needed and also described below. Those resources below with a asterisk have a recommended resource that could immediately fill the position. The other resources would need to be appointed by the Town Council. It is recommended that a person /institution be found to represent each of the following skill related positions: 1) Science: It is recommended that the Denver Museum have a representative on the Task Force as the science resource. The Denver Museum will be the source for the science and the ultimate story of the site. 2) Education: An individual /institution that has significant experience in delivering natural science related educational programs (including informal science education) is recommended. 3) Fundraising: An individual with significant experience in not- for profit fund raising, significant capital campaigns, and obtaining grants that are applicable to this type of discovery would be desirable. 4) Marketing: An individual that has significant experience in marketing, promoting ideas, events, educational opportunities. It is recommended that the Director of Snowmass Tourism be considered for this position. 5) Citizen at large: We would suggest one individual from Snowmass Village who has significant communication skills and community experience and will provide a constructive conduit to a broad spectrum of Snowmass Village residents be appointed to the Task Force. It was also suggested that the Town might want to consider both a full time and a part time resident for this position. 6) Design /Construction /Development: Since some form of exhibit or facility may be needed, finding someone that has significant experience in design and /or construction is recommended to be appointed to the task force. 7) Town of Snowmass Village: It is recommended that a Town of Snowmass Village staff member participate in the task force. The Town Manager could provide close coordination with the rest of the Town organization and the Town Council. It may be useful to retain the names of applicants that apply for the above mentioned positions and who are not chosen for a seat in the event that sub committees are needed by the task force. The Snowmass Water and Sanitation District is a critical partner related to this project. Any discussion related to the reservoir needs to be closely coordinated with the District. The District (along with anyone in the public) will be invited to participate in task force meetings. It is recognized that the Task Force will need to work closely with other local institutional partners that maybe able to contribute to this project. Institutions may also have individuals that could be considered for their individual skills to sit on the task force. It is also recommended that a facilitator be engaged to moderate the task force meetings versus naming a chair for the task force. This approach will help increase the likelihood that all voices are heard in the process and that no one interest dominates the recommendations to Council. 4. PROPOSED NEXT STEPS: A. December 6, 2010: Council will review the recommendations in Section 3 and provide direction on any changes they desire. The Council could immediately initiate the Task Force with the individuals /institutions that have specific recommendations (See Based on the input from the Town Council the attached announcement (attachment A) for advertising the positions would be modified and posted as soon as December 71H B. December 6, 2010: Council will also receive a presentation from Snowmass Tourism on short term actions (Ski Season 2010/2011) to implement (attachment B). These would not be subject to the Task Force process. C. December 13, 2010 at 12:00 noon: Deadline for applications. If a significant number of applications are received, it may be necessary for the Town Council to make a first cut at a special meeting of the Town Council scheduled for December 13th of individuals that would be interviewed on December 20 D. December 20, 2010 Council will determine appropriate candidates to appoint to the Task Force and choose a facilitator. December 21, 2010: Staff will engage a facilitator chosen by Council to work with the Task Force. The Town Council may also want to request that the Task Force return in the very near future with a work plan (tasks, time frame, budget requirements). Attachment A- Draft Announcement for open positions Ice Age Discovery Committee (IADC) The Town of Snowmass Village is organizing the Ice Age Discovery Committee in light of the recent historic finds at the Ziegler Reservoir.

Box 5010 Snowmass Village, CO 81615 Dear Russ, Yesterday the Snowmass Water and Sanitation Board held their monthly board meeting and discussed the formation of the Ice Age Discovery Committee. The Board of Directors of the District believes that it is important that they be provided with a voting position on this committee to protect their contractual rights and obligations with the Museum of Natural Science and the reservoir construction. At our most recent meeting, Rhonda Bazil was appointed by the Board to sit on this committee. She has been involved with both the Museum and the Aspen Community Foundation to discuss financing options for the dig and is familiar with the various agreements that will come into play. Thanks for your consideration.
