Beezley Journal Offers Glimpse of the Past

Will Beezley was an orchardist and farmer who lived up Steven’s Gulch just outside of Paonia. In the 1930s, 40s and 50s, he kept a daily log of his tasks, along with the weather and conditions. The brief entries offer a glimpse of his work on the land and his chase with water. The journals are now in the hands of Paonia resident Amber Kleinman, who has been selecting and posting entries for ISeeChange at thealmanac.org. She was interviewed by KVNF’s Marty Durlin, who asked her first about the process of transcribing the journals.

Marty Durlin

At 4 pm on Tuesday, April 16, the Blue Sage in Paonia will present a practical session to help people deal with a topic no one wants to talk about. Jean Ceriani is trying to tell us something. As a healthcare provider, she’s seen how the body wears out, gives up, or is wounded beyond repair. But most of us can’t seem to communicate with one another about this most basic fact of our existence – that it will end.

KVNF’s Marty Durlin spoke to someone who’s managed it for decades.
