Face Yoga/How to take years off of your face

Fumiko Takatsu, has been studying for the last 15 years the most common signs of facial aging. She focuses on seven major unconscious, ordinary behaviors that cause premature facial aging. Fumiko, a student of ours who visits the studio in the summer, will be teaching part of the gentle yoga class this Monday, July 10 at 9 am. She will show us some yoga movements for the face that will help with the aging process. You can attend this class as a drop in student for $13 or use your pass. I am very excited to have her with us, many of us have been interested in her technique so I feel fortunate she is giving us a glimpse into it... Join us this Monday!

Exhibit on display from Thurs., July 6th – Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

Livingston Center for Art and Culture presents:

6 artists: Joel Kiser, Coral Lambert, Suz Marshak, Karin Neff, Carla Pagliaro, Laura Poinsette, and Kelley Sullivan. July 6 through August 3rd. Reception/Art Walk: Friday, July 28th, 5:30 – 8pm.

"Treasured States" came about in a discovery of travel, looking at objects and amazing landscapes that took our breath away and made us stop, look and feel. The idea that a work of art resonates such that our minds and souls give it immense visual value to the experience. Holding works of art and places in high regard as a visual treasure.

Precious. Stunning. Special.

Pour Painting AGAIN! taught by Grey Wilson

Date: Saturday, JULY 22

Time: NOON to 2pm
Cost: $45 per student ($40 for LCAC members)

In this THIRD offering, Wilson will demonstrate the basics of creating paintings that use gravity as your paint brush. Use of specific materials will be explained, how to use them and effects that can be achieved when combining them.

Students will be able to do more than one painting in the class. They may have to pick up their art the following Tuesday, as it only takes overnight to dry. Completed paintings also move slightly, so it is better to let them set. Drawing skills are not necessary. If you can put ketchup on a hamburger, you can do this. It's lots of fun and you will be surprised how creative you will become.

All materials included.

Reception for A Railroad Runs Through It: Livingston Artists Celebrate the Railroad to held June 15, 2017 at 7pm

FOR THE SUMMER OF 2017 and celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of the museum, the Livingston

Depot Foundation is unveiling a landmark exhibition entitled: “A Railroad Runs Through It: Livingston

Artists Celebrate Trains.” A special artist reception will be held June 15, 2017 at 7pm. Music by the

Park High School Jazz Band and poetry by Marc Beaudin will set the stage as artists and the public

celebrate trains and our enduring, interconnected, and spirited relationship with the railroad. The

evening will include light fare passed by the Sister City Cultural Exchange, and refreshments provided

by Neptune’s Brewery.

Painters, photographers, and sculptors celebrate both the historic Depot and the dynamic train

activity that passes daily. A poetic Montana reminiscence made into a captivating movie, A River

Runs Through It has its own connections to Livingston, with memorable scenes filmed in nearby

locations. In an obvious play on words, we titled the exhibition A Railroad Runs Through It, reflecting

the reality that is Livingston. This can be taken quite literally—a railroad does run through our town.

But [and perhaps because of its source], it is pleading to be elevated to higher ground. Norman

Maclean has set a high bar....

Guest curators Tandy Miles Riddle and Adrienne Pollard note that the exhibit takes the form in a

range of images, abstract or literal, allegorical, obvious, abstruse, anything reflecting diversity and

artistic insight. From a quilt pieced together with scraps of silk kimonos and gingham (a subtle

allusion to the thousands of Asian laborers who helped build the western railway system and to the

emigrants brought west via that system to settle the frontier) to the telegraph and its interdependent

relationship with the railroad (both linking distant places and kindling the railroad’s concept and

development of standardized time!).

Featured artists include Jim Barrett, Marc Beaudin, Storrs Bishop, Eleanor Williams Clark, Edd

Enders, Malou Flato, Doris Davis Gallagher, Sheila Hrasky, Bob Newhall, Adrienne Pollard, Parks

Reece, Tandy Miles Riddle, Robert Spannring, Colleen Story, Mark Strand, David Swanson, Joe

Wayne, and John Zumpano. Historic photos from the A. Gill collection of Wellington Brouse, as well

as the iconic railroad images from Historian Warren McGee, will be juxtaposed with the contemporary

art. Depot Museum Director, Diana Seider, stated, “A Railroad Runs Through It special exhibit is a

colorful celebration for the 30 th anniversary of the Depot Museum. The powerful work in this exhibition

affirms the connection between the railroad and Livingston’s robust artist community.”

In connection with the exhibit, the Depot will host a variety of classes throughout the season. The first

class will be taught by Eleanor Clark who will be sharing her expertise in naturalist journaling and

mixed media art. Clark will instruct an adult class in afternoon of July 13 th from 1-3 pm. She will also

host a youth oriented class in the morning from 9-11 am. The Movies on the Lawn series will

celebrate the 25th anniversary of “A River Runs Through It” on August 17 to compliment the show.

The Depot Museum exhibits in 2017 will run from Friday, May 12 through September 24. Located at

200 West Park, the Depot is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from

1 to 5 p.m. There is a nominal admission, and group visits are also welcome by special arrangement.

Additional information can be obtained by contacting the Depot office at (406) 222-2300 or visiting

206 South Main
The always optional theme:
Veggie Bacon!
Recipe Demo:
Coconut Bacon Bits

Proving Isa Chandra's
Vegan Rule #14:
“Vegans can and will
make bacon out of everything!"

Bacon is all about salt, fat, smoky flavor, and chewy crispy texture!
No misery or violent death required.

We’ve never met a person who wants to hurt animals.
People are kind.

Pigs raised for bacon suffer lives that are hell on earth; then are slaughtered at 6 months young.
Those who think “humane” or “local” mean anything are forgetting the ultimate betrayal, the terror of transport, and the horror of slaughter.

We’ve never met a vegan who gave up meat because it tastes bad.
Everyone loves the taste of salt & fat!

BACO’s are Accidentally Vegan
and with a little soy sauce and liquid smoke, homemade bacon can be made from all sorts of veggies...

My name is Martha Miller and I am running for re-election as Park County Auditor. I have lived and worked in Park County for 39 years. I have been married to my husband Mike for 32 years and our children were born and raised here. Mike and I owned and operated a successful construction business in Park County for over 25 years and I have been in supervisory and financial management positions most of my working career in Park County.

I am the first elected Auditor for Park County and have served in that capacity for 8 years and I am proud of my accomplishments as Auditor. I have worked to resolve a number of significant audit findings and Park County now has balancing procedures in place for taxes receivable, taxes paid in protest and Treasurer's cash, key areas relating to the accuracy of Park County's financial reports. Reports used by the Commissioners and department heads to make financial decisions; the same information available to the public.

I work closely with Treasurer to keep tax billing and payment information in agreement with accounting records and monitor tax adjustments generated by the Dept of Revenue.

I prepare investment trust account reconciliations for the Clerk of District Court and I work with both District and Justice Court to monitor money held in trust. The sheriff's department and detention center also hold money in trust for Park County citizens and I prepare reports on these trust accounts for the Commissioners.

Another of my duties is approving all claims presented to the County for payment. I have promoted streamlining the claims process to improve efficiency while reducing excessive and redundant paperwork, allowing department heads to focus on the essential duties of their department.

I volunteered and was appointed by the Commission to manage Angel Line Senior and Disabled Transportation and I assist the Park County Senior Center with annual grant compliance and HUD tenant recertification for the Center's low income senior housing.

Working together toward a common goals and promoting a culture of teamwork is important for Park County, important to me as Auditor, and important for efficiency in local government.

Helping departments, answering questions and offering assistance whenever possible has been a focal point for me. Fiscal responsibility is fostered through knowledge and promotes accountability and transparency; empowering department heads and elected officials to make informed financial decisions.

I have invested myself in the position and taken on many duties and responsibilities. I look forward to another term as Auditor, to finish long term goals and projects. Building trust in local government through accountability, fiscal integrity and transparency and continuing to serve the citizens of Park County as Auditor.

I would sincerely appreciate your support in the upcoming election. Thank you!

About me . . .
I was born and raised in rural Pennsylvania . . . the third of eight siblings. At age 21, I was fortunate to marry the love of my life, Steve, and we have remained happily together for 37 years . . . and counting. Steve is the service manager at Frontline Ag (John Deere) here in Livingston. We have been blessed with 3 wonderful sons, 4 grandsons & 2 granddaughters. All 3 of our boys graduated from Park High and our youngest, Justin, is a staff sergeant in the United States Marine Corps currently serving in North Carolina. He is a veteran of Iraqi Freedom and I am so very proud to be a military mom.

Steve and I brought our family to Paradise Valley in 1994 and have lived there in the same place for 22 years. We attend Grace Bible Church in Bozeman where I serve in musical ministry both as a soloist and in a ladies ensemble.

My Qualifications . . .
After the birth of my second son, I went back to school and became a licensed professional. I opened and successfully operated my own business for 6 years until we moved to Montana. Here in Montana, I went to work as the accounts receivable manager for a local manufacturing company where I was privileged to handle the credit accounts of business owners from all over the world. During my 7 years there, I also served as assistant to the comptroller, the liaison between the sales and finance departments, as well as processing payroll and assisting with benefits administration for as many as 120 employees. Then, 13 years ago, I came to the Park County Accounting Office as Assistant Finance Director. My main focuses there have been: payroll administration (including associated reconciliations), working in the general ledger, assisting the county treasurer with closing month-end financials, assisting with the county budget, and troubleshooting for school clerks.

In our ‘spare’ time, my husband and I opened our own business where we manage a vacation rental and I do administrative clerk duties for the Cooke City Water District (since 2010) and their Emergency Services (since 2012). I’ve also been the manager for the Livingston Bowling Association since 2008.

Why me . . .

The Park County Auditor is currently charged with reviewing all county accounting functions for accuracy & compliance with Montana Code, approving claims, managing Angel Line transportation, and any other tasks assigned by the Commissioners. I believe that I am ready to accept those challenges . . . and more. You will have noticed that my employment history is one of diversity, hard work and responsibility.

As a former and current business owner, I am well aware of the amount of time and care that it takes to see that everything is done right. I did/do all of my own accounting (including reporting and taxes), scheduling appointments, ordering products and providing customer service. I now believe the experience and skills that I have gained can be more fully utilized to Park County’s financial advantage by adding more value to the County Auditor position.

Because the County Auditor has few mandated duties in Montana Code, there is much flexibility and the position looks different in each county that has one. After studying a few of them, I see ways that we can better structure the position to get more for the $72,000+ that it is costing county taxpayers.

While I truly enjoy my work in the Accounting Office, I find myself desiring to serve the residents of Park County in an even greater capacity. I'm excited about the possibilities for becoming your County Auditor and believe that that the Office could be used to solve current workload issues . . . which, in turn, will cut costs.

So, on November 8th, vote for the candidate with 'hart'. Your support will be greatly appreciated.

We have two grown children that live and work in Park County and three wonderful grandchildren. I have lived in Park County for 48 years.

During the past two terms, I have worked to improve the infrastructure of Park County, insure transparency in all actions by the Commission, encourage business development, and balance the County budget.

I served as Park County Extension Agent for over thirty years and nearly eight years as Park County Commissioner. I am very dedicated to serving the Community of Park County.

The Park County Commission serves as the local governing board in the County. It is the Commission's responsibility to act as legislative body and act as the executive for all departments. It is certainly a full time job. I personally feel it is very important to visit each department in and out of the Courthouse and be acquainted with all the employees. I feel strongly that it is important for Commissioners to be knowledgeable of what each department faces on a daily basis

When I first ran for this office I believed that it is very important that the Commissioners be very active tracking the policies And activities of state and federal governments. The action of these agencies has a major impact on the economy of Park County and the recreational opportunities for citizens. I have been very active in the Custer Gallatin Forest Collaborative. The purpose of this Collaborative is to assist the Forest Service in locating potential areas for fuels reduction and harvesting. The goal is to reduce the number and severity of forest fires.

County Commissioners are very important to the success of this nation. No other elected office has more contact with citizens. Commissioners live and work in the County that they govern. Citizens have the opportunity to express their opinion on any number of subjects.

I am running for District 2 Park County Commissioner. I am currently employed by Park County as the Fairgrounds Caretaker. I am proud to have served in the United States Navy for 22 years. During my career in the Navy I obtained a wealth of knowledge in management of business and cyber security referred to as ISSM INFORMATION SYSTEMS SECURITY MANAGER.. With this great opportunity of being in the U. S. Navy I was trained in the fields of Leadership, Balancing and working with Budgets, How to deal with work issues as a Manager and gained valued education in the fastest growing IT field. I am proud of the two business I created. Livingston Concrete Supply and Mamas Cotton Candy Corner. I have worked for Fisher Sand and Gravel here in Livingston. And I am a Certified Drug and Alcohol program advisor.

Through my involvement with local business and my employment I have attended multiple government board meetings, I discovered there is a need for more fiscal preparedness and basic common sense in our local leaders. Through my business and military background I can provide the citizens of this county with a solvent, responsible solution to many of the concerns that are facing each of us every day.
Governments duty to it's citizens is safety, health and welfare.

I would like to provide you with my three primary concerns for the current situation in your county and my solutions to remediate them:
1. We have become a top-heavy government, expending funding to numerous positions within the political framework that does not produce the minimum needs of the citizens, much less the statutorily required ones. We have too many chiefs and not enough people producing the end product; serving you, the public. Many required elements have slipped through the cracks to the point that no one knows who is performing the mandatory task, let alone if they are being performed.

During my tour in the Navy I commanded 50 personnel and trained 100s more in operations, combat, CPR and weapons certification, firefighting, flooding preparedness, and maintained my own budget for my personnel and duties. I could not pull additional funding from PILT if I fell short.

2. We are running under an antiquated dispatch system known as analog, while the FCC P2 5 mandates will require us to eventually move into digital communications. Current officials have not secured a plan to set aside funding to purchase, implement or train for this requirement. I am trained as an Information Systems Security Manager or ISSM, which is the the military equivalent of an IT Technician and have a working knowledge of both cyber and technical implementation of communications in a broad spectrum of situations and radio communications. It is government's duty to keep it's citizens safe and I would endeavor to bring the many agencies now utilizing our current dispatch system into the 21st century standards and compliance.

Prior to my Navy Retirement I held the following additional qualifications and responsibilities:
* Command Operations Chief
* Combat Systems Training Team Member
* Damage Control Training Team Member
* Force Protection Training Team Member

I moved to Livingston shortly after my Navy Retirement to be close to my family as we have called Livingston and Park County home for over 30 years.

I am proud to be a member of
* The American Legion
* VFW
* Toastmasters

My concerns I see are the need for Informed, Fair and Balanced discussions that can result in making sound decisions that will benefit the quality of life we have here in Park County.

I am aware there are current issues needing to be attended, However I do anticipate in looking hard at certain areas for better service.
* Upgrading the antiquated 911 system from Analog to Digital
* Roads
* Renewable Energy
* Emigrant Pit and Mine Proposal

I believe to get a job done you need to roll up your sleeves and get with it. That is what I intend to do with your vote for me.

I've been a proud Park County resident for 30 years. My wife and I live 5 miles outside of Gardiner. A summer job brought me to Yellowstone in 1972, leading to a 9 year career as Director of Business Operations for Yellowstone Park Service Stations in Gardiner. During a career break in an MBA program I developed a business concept and launched a web-based job board in 1995. CoolWorks.com is now 21 years old, employs 8, and has helped tens of thousands find meaningful work in great places -- like Montana.

Volunteering on the Park County Planning and Development Board since 2008, and serving as Chair for 2 of those years, has provided valuable insights into the workings and trends of the county. I've served a number of volunteer roles in Gardiner, including one year as President of the Gardiner Chamber of Commerce in 2011. I've also served as President of the Greater Gardiner Community Council since 2012. In that capacity I've volunteered on the steering committee of the Gardiner Gateway Project for several years, establishing productive working relationships with Yellowstone Park, Park County, the state of Montana, and several federal agencies and officials. That network was key to the success of the Gateway Project and other community minded projects we've tackled recently.

As Teddy Roosevelt put it, I believe that "Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing." I like work that matters. After years of volunteering, I would like to contribute more directly by serving on the Park County Commission.

I look forward to working on your behalf, guided by the priorities of ensuring citizen-driven decisions, preserving our q

"Fact: The brain stem and spinal cord are primary pathways of nerve impulses to and from the brain. Messages back and forth through these nerves control the health and function of virtually every cell, tissue, organ and system of the body. The spinal cord is housed by the spinal column. Vertebral subluxation (misalignment) can irritate nerve tissues and ultimately couse health problems."

Strategic Planning

Community:
The School Board has identified three areas based on the strategic plan that they would like to create committees to formulate recommendations for each initiative. If you would like to serve on one of these committees or feel like you may be a Subject Matter Expert (SME) to work on one of these committees please let me know. We would like to have two parents/community members, two students, and a SME to serve on each committee in addition to two staff members and a board member. Committees are as follows:
•Facilities Committee- will be responsible for considering the needs, wants and preferences of our school and our community, developing a plan that prioritizes our facility needs.
•Technology Committee - will be responsible for continuously researching and exploring innovative ways to enhance the programs and services we provide to students, developing a plan that prioritizes our technology needs, reviews our strategic objectives on an ongoing basis and makes knowledge-based recommendations to the Board.
•Communication Committee - will identify strategies to carry out our communication initiatives identified in the Strategic Plan.

In addition, there will be an Academic Program Committee who will review our academic programs to ensure that current course offerings are meeting the needs of our students. The School Improvement Team will serve as this committee but if you are interested please let Mike Baer know in case there are openings on this committee.

You can reach me at jtstroder@gardiner.org or 406-224-7323 if you have any questions.

Emily S. Colman / Rainbows Landing Pottery

The functional stoneware pieces are all food and dishwasher safe. Functional stoneware is beautiful, long-lasting and makes a wonderful special gift for yourself or a friend. All pieces are fired to a mid-range to the highest firing temperatures. Various firing techniques are used for the sculptural work, but they are usually high- fired in salt or wood soda environments, or gas reduction fired.
Artisan Emily S. Coleman has signed all the individually hand-thrown pieces. She has been making art professionally since 1972, having ventured into stoneware more recently. A graduate of the Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Massachusetts, Ms. Coleman began studying pottery with raku potter Bob Green at the Shelburne Craft School in Shelburne, VT. She also worked in the pottery studio of Judith Bryant of Lincoln Potters in Lincoln, VT, and apprenticed with teacher Mary Jane Neal of the Mt. Mansfield Union High School Art Department in Jericho, VT. Ms. Coleman holds an MEd. from the University of Vermont. After moving to Montana, she studied as a community class student at the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts in Helena, from 2004-2006. During that period she studied with resident artists Curtis Stewardson, Albion Stafford, Gerrit Grimm, Deborah Schwartzkopf , Trey Hill, and participated in a kiln-building workshop with Ben Krupka. Most recently she has attended ceramics classes at Montana State University with Asst Profs. Josh DeWeese and Elizabeth Sparks, from 2007-2011, and has shown in group and solo shows at the University. In addition to selling her work at farmers markets in Monatana, and at selected shows in the northwest, she teaches adult and student pottery classes at her studio in Emigrant, MT, RainbowsLanding Studios.

Original Paintings, Lithographs and Reproductions
Born January 19, 1954 in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, in the Blue Ridge region of the Appalachian Mountains to Scotch-Irish parents, I was indoctrinated into the arts and was an active member of the art community. Some of my most vivid memories are of finger-painting at age 6 with my mother, Gwyn Finley Reece under the tutelage of Ruth Shaw, the originator of the finger-painting medium. I went on to attend East Carolina University, the Universidad National in Costa Rica, and attained my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute.
For almost 30 years I have roamed the mountains, rivers and taverns of Southwest Montana, often in pursuit of wild game and fish. My gallery is located in historic downtown Livingston where you can view my newest work.

The highly acclaimed book, Call of the Wild The Art of Parks Reece, featuring the first published collection of the wit and works of Parks Reece is also available at the gallery.
