A Tiger roams at Summer of Jazz?

Steppin' Out with AprilApril E. ClarkGlenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Wednesday night, rumor has it Tiger Woods was at the Summer of Jazz show at Two Rivers Park.

The possibility seems highly unlikely – especially since Tiger is a brand-new dad – but that’s the story I was told, and I’m sticking to it. Hey, you never know … Allen Toussaint was quite the talent. I could see him drawing a famous crowd.Anyone who had a hand in the original “Lady Marmalade” has my vote.I’ve been fortunate enough to catch every Summer of Jazz show so far this summer. I recommend the event to anyone who likes to spend a Wednesday evening listening to New Orleans jazz in the park, chatting with friends and enjoying cold summer beverages. My friends and I also like to bring along Summer of Jazz finger food. So far, the dip mixes bought at Strawberry Days, fresh cherries and Hawaiian chicken legs have been a hit.To borrow from Will Smith, that has “…summer summer summertime” written all over it.

It’s happening in Glenwood Springs to boot: Vintage Base Ball, see baseball as it was played in the 1860s, sponsored by the Frontier Historical Society, Glenwood Sluggers versus Yampah Stars. Bring a blanket and picnic dinner. Free and open to the public, 6 p.m., field between Glenwood Springs High School and Roaring Fork River. Information: 945-4448This is why I’d kick it up here: Just call me an ol’ “crank,” the word for a spectator in Vintage Base Ball speak. This old-fashioned fan is sure to be a hoot with my friends (some are also co-workers) Rob Tramazzo, Jeff Caspersen, Dale Shrull and Dane Wilson as ballists. The terms used in this throw-back match should be a hoot, to making for one “dinger” of a sporting event.

It’s happening in Snowmass to boot: Son Volt, alternative country band, 6 p.m. Saturday, and Keller Williams, one-man jam band, 7:30 p.m., followed by 30-minute, fire-safe laser light show begins at 9 p.m. from Fanny Hill. Information: http://www.snowmassvillage.comThis is why I’d kick it up here: With any luck, Saturday I’ll be a “Freeker by the Speaker” at the free Keller Williams show in Snowmass Village. The show is a great way to celebrate the Fourth of July early, so head upvalley to chill out on Fanny Hill Saturday night with Keller and Son Volt.

Report: Estimates of future Upper Colorado River Basin water use confound previous planning

A report released this month by the Center for Colorado River Studies says that in order to sustainably manage the river in the face of climate change, officials need alternative management paradigms and a different way of thinking compared with the status quo. Estimates about how much water the Upper Colorado River Basin states will use in the future are a problem that needs rethinking, according to the white paper.
