» GREELEY (Cote.) TRIBUNE Wed.. March II, 1171 ' WMfe wifcfc' wants her job back · -- -- ~« DENVER (UPI) - Kathy Estes says she's a 'Vhite witch" and only uses her powers for personal gain, like getting rid of an unwanted husband. Mrs. Estes claims her interest in witchcraft, which she has studied since the age of 10. was responsible for her dismissal from a cashier's job at the Brown Palace Hotel. And she has asked the Colorado Civil Service Commission lo help her regain her position. Mrs. Estes said she was fired after hotel officials claimed she sent a dead flower to a fellow employe as a threat. Mrs. Estes, who claims to practice "white witchcraft, not Satanism," said she believed she should have her job back. "They acted like it was Salem all over again," she said. "But I didn't walk in there wearing Mack robes, practice in the privacy of my own home, and I want my job back." Hotel officials said Mrs. Estes was not fired. "She was questioned about harassing another employe, became irate and quit," a spokesman said. 'The Brown Palace didn't rehire her." Mrs. Estes, whose mother and sister also claim to be witches, said Wicca (witchcraft) is a "kind of religion." "Christians go to church and pray for what they want and witches use witchcraft," she said. "Besides, Wicca was around before Christianity." The mother of two admitted using witchcraft to help her obtain a divorce from her husband and also to get rid of an unwanted cousin who was staying with the family. But mostly, she said, she uses her powers for "power and money." "Most witches 1 know are so busy getting what they want, they don't have time to worry about anything else," she said. "I'm still into the greedy stuff -- love spells, hate spells and revenge. But I'm not into black magic, causing wrecks or making people see things." School bond issue RIFLE, Colo.

Bob Fawcett is looking for a would- be cattleman who can fly his own plane, likes to fish in his spare time and has $8.4 million to spare. Fawcett. vice president of Previews, Inc., said his firm was offering for sale the Cuerno Verde Ranch, more than 42,000 acres of land lying in a valley between [he Sangre de Cristo and Wet Mountains in southern Colorado. Asking price for the ranch, which includes a home, six barns and a 6,500-foot airstrip complete with its own hangar. is $8,440,600. He said the ranch, located 57 miles west of Pueblo and 160 miles from Denver, had six reservoirs, three of which are stocked with trout. Fawcett said the property would be ideal for a cattle operation. But if the prospective buyer does not want the entire package, Fawcettsaid, a 23,170- acre parcel of the property can be purchased separately for $325 per acre. He said that portion of the ranch would lend itself to development of a wildlife preserve, a hunting and fishing club or a guest ranch. Boulder School Board gets OK for limited closed sessions BOULDER, Colo/(UPI) -- A district judge has given the Boulder Valley School Board limited permission to meet in closed session because of a state statute which supercedes the Colorado Sunshine Law. Boulder District Judge William Neighbors Tuesday said the board of education was entitled to hold closed meetings and to select the issues which would be discussed at those limes. But Neighbors said meetings during which the board gave final consideration to issues or sessions at which votes were taken would have to be opened to the public. The decision came on a request from Boulder District Attorney Alex Hunter, who last year asked for a declaratory judgment on the legality of closed meetings by the school board and the Boulder and Lafayette City Councils. Tuesday's ruling applied only to the board of education and decisions on the legality of closed meetings by the city councils still were pending. Neighbors said a state law allowing ddiuul boards lu uietl in executive session took precedence over the Sunshine Law, which requires all governmental bodies to open their meetings to the public. Hunter was out of town and not available for comment. Lamm orders Narrows review; reprimands 3 state agencies DENVER (UPI) - Gov. Richard Lamm has ordered another review of the $140 million Narrcivs Project ir. northeast Colorado and has reprimanded three slate agencies for failing to submit comments on the project prior to his endorsement of it. I.amm, who endorsed the project Feb. 27, said he had ordered Harris Sherman, director of the Department of Natural Resources, to review the comments of the state agencies and to report on them. At the time he endorsed the proposed dam and reservoir, Lamm said a draft environmental-impact statement had dealt adequately with the impacts of the project. However, three agencies failed to submit comments on the project by a Feb. 15 deadline -- the Department of Agriculture, the Division of Water Resources and the Colorado Land Use Commission. "[ am personally upset that three state agencies apparently had information to contribute on the adequacy of the environmental-Impact statement for the Narrows Project, but for one reason or another didn't see fit to tender such information to the clearinghouse in a timely fashion nor bring the information to the attention of the Department ol Natural Resources, the lead agency in the Narrows Project review," Lamm said. "This type of action on the part of state agencies is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in the future," he said. Despite the review, Sherman said it was not likely there would be a change in the state's position on construction of the dam.
