Sunday, March 7, 1999 WYOMING AND THE WEST Casper Star Tribune B3 t i Roaming elk hopped By COLEMAN CORNELIUS Associated Press ESTES PARK, Colo. - Addicts are wandering the streets ol this mountain tourist town. But unlike most, these have (our legs: They're elk. The critters are at the center of a town quarrel that's been fermenting for several years, ever since the Estes Park Brewery Ix'gan allowing the wildlife to eat malted barley left over from Its beer-brewing pro-' cess. The mlcrobrewery dumps Its waste grain Into a trailer, attracting dozens of elk that munch It like eager cattle at a feed trough. The mash Is not alcoholic, but It's addictive to the game that winter In and around ' Estes Park, locals and wildlife officials said. "1 haven't seen them staggering, but they're definitely hooked on It," said Rick Spowart, district wildlife manager for the Colorado Division of Wildlife. The situation elicits chuckles and jokes about drunk elk, but it's a serious problem, Spowart and others said. That's because feeding big game is illegal In Colorado. And the grain-crazed elk rou-; tlnely cross U.S. 36 - the busy highway leading Into Rocky Mountain National Park - to get to their barley source, thus causing a significant traffic hazard.

In the past year, three motorists have hit elk crossing the highway next to the mlcrobrewery, authorities said. The wrecks killed the elk; no one In the vehicles was seriously Injured. The risks have spurred a number of complaints about the Estes Park Brewery to the Colorado Division of Wildlife, authorities said. The mash Is barley left over from the first stage of beer brewing. Microbrewers add water to malted barley to extract natural sugars Irom the grain, then drain off the liquid; the mash Is discarded, and the liquid Is fermented to become beer. Most mlcrobreweries sell waste grain to dairy farms and beef-cattle feed lots, another area brewer said. The mash has no alcohol content. Spowart has warned the owner of the Estes Park Brewery to dispose of his waste grain another way, but the problem has not abated. "I told him somebody Is going to get injured, and I can see a lawsuit coming his way," Spowart said. "He claimed he is not feeding elk and said if I didn't like it, I should keep my blankety-blank animals off his property." The wildlife officer said he will ticket the Obituaries follow In Mountain View Cemetery. He died March 5, 1999, at Riverton Memorial Hospital. He was born Oct. 2, 1907, in Cambridge, III., the son of Fred and Mable (Dryer) Fausset. At an early age, he and his family moved to Bishop Hills, Okla. In 1924, they moved to Darrouzett, Texas, where they ranched and raised wheat. In 1929, he married Edythe Roach. They ranched and farmed In Texas and operated the livestock auction in San Angelo, Texas. After the Depression in the 1930s, they moved to Worland In 1938, where they were in the livestock trucking business and later purchased Worland Livestock Sales Ring. In 1964, they purchased the Riverton Livestock Auction and operated It until 1970. From 1950-1960, he flew his airplane and was a member of the Wyoming Hying Farmers Association. He and his wife enjoyed traveling in their motorhome and went south during winter months. He enjoyed visiting with friends and family. Survivors include three sons, Donald M.

A ticket results in a fine and surcharges amounting to $68. Ed Grueff, owner of the 5-year-old Estes Park Brewery, denied feeding elk when coiv tacted by a rexrter. Rather, he said, the elk discovered the waste grain Ix'hlnd his brewery and have xrsistently returned. Grueff said he tries to ward oil wildlile by covering the grain trailer and by giving the mash to an area farmer for livestock feed. But the elk are attract ed to his business' barley kernels dropix'd on the ground and even by the scent of brewing beer, he said. "Sure it draws them. It looks like a Las Vegas buffet line out there. But we're certaiiv ly not out there trying to kill the elk and disrupt people." Yet earlier this week, a cow elk dipped her head into the trailer to feast on the grain as if eating from a feed bunk. The trailer - a detached pickup lied - was filled with brewing mash and was only partly covered with plywood, giving the animals easy access. As the elk munched, occasionally raising her head to lick her lips, a herd of about two dozen other animals lounged on the nearby riverbank under rustling pine trees, as if lolling in the cool shade after a midday beer. moved to Cody in 1940 when he joined Chet Ridgway to practice medicine.

X as " V- NASA team trying to save satellite LOS ANGELES (AP)- Scientists fought to regain control of a NASA satellite Saturday that spun out ol control after being launched. The Wide-Held Infrared Explorer, or Wire, has been spinning at a rate of once a second since its launch Thursday night - apparently caused by the thruster-like action of hydrogen gas venting from a cryogenic system used to keep the satellite's telescope extremely cold. The cause of the problem was unknown, said Lynn Jenner, spokeswoman at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Ground controllers were in contact with the spacecraft and remained optimistic about saving the $67 million mission, which was designed to help scientists understand how and when galaxies formed, and the history of star formation. "The subsystems are in good shape," Jim Watzin, a project manager in NASA's Small Ex Utah criminal justice system criticized as racially biased CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -Utah's criminal justice system treats Indians and others from ethnic minorities as second class citizens, Iron County residents told a task force investigating the system's fairness. The hearing was hosted Friday at the Paiute Tribal Office by The Utah Task Force on Racial and Ethnic Fairness in the Legal System. It was commissioned by the Judicial Council in 1996. Few escaped criticism as residents talked of bad treatment from public defenders, police and school officials. Those who addressed the task force said the lack of communication between minorities and the predominantly white population feed a cycle of misunderstandings, frustration and anger. The speakers were assigned numbers to protect their anonymity. "We came from Nevada and we were friends with cops there but the school district here automatically stereotyped my son as a gangbanger just because we are from Nevada," said one woman. "I hate the school district here so much that I pulled my son out and sent him back to Nevada to finish school." One man said Indians are pegged as troublemakers. "There was one instance where everybody was slam dancing at the school, football players, cheerleaders and two Indian boys, they were all told to stop and didn't, but only the two Indian boys were taken out," the speaker continued. He also described what he considered harassment by the CARD OF THANKS The Family of NANCY T.WHITE wishes to express their sincerest thanks to everyone for their concern and support during her illness.

"The solar arrays are geh-erating power and the battery is fully charged. We have plenty of power to effect a recovery." The 4-loot long telescope was built by Utah Stale University's Space Dynamics Laboratory. Ground controllers are attempting to build a software program that would use the spar e-craft's onboard altitude control system to "de-spin" the spacecraft, but it would take several days to develop, Watin said. Wire has no thrusters to cQn-trol the way it points, instead using devices called magnetic torque rods, which operale much more gently. - The torque rods were turwd on Friday but were too weak to counteract the spinning, officials said. When the craft was launched, the hydrogen was frozen solid. The hydrogen was supposed to melt and vent gradually, keeping the telescope cold through a four-month mission. Utah Highway Patrol. "One titne they pulled me over and said they did because they had a report that a red car was passing people on the freeway. What kind of reason is that?" One woman described how an officer in Cedar City stopped her two days after she arrived in town from Las Vegas 13 years ago. "He pulled me over and asked what I was doing in town and I've had problems with him ever since." she said. Other speakers discussed problems they had with the court system and public defenders. One woman described poor communication. "When my son was in trouble, they didn't take into consideration that he had a learning disability, she said. "There is no cultural representation for Native Americans. We need to get educated and get some kind of legal system here for our people." Dan Maldonado, the assist ant director of the Division of Youth Corrections and a task force member, said the three points he heard most often were that police profile minorities, defense attorneys give poor representation and minorities need help understanding their rights. ... Chris Martinez, president of Image de Utah, suggested regular forums so police officers, lawyers, judges and teachers can educate minorities on their rights.
