Randy Rusk(cq) stands at the fence line that marks the beginning of protected property on his family's land where he was born and where his elderly parents still live in Westcliffe Wednesday June 28, 2006. The protected area extends to the base of the range seen in this photo. Rusk, who has 400 head of beef cows, is a Colorado rancher who will be featured in Newsweek's "Giving Back Awards," released Monday. Rusk is being honored for selling his family's land to the Trust for Public Land, a national nonprofit, and setting up a conservation easement. It's his way of protecting the land from future development. Rusk laments the development of the land in the Wet Mountain Valley. (DAVID M. BARREDA / ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) **Randy Rusk (cq)
