Randy Rusk(cq) poses for a portrait on his family's land where he was born and where his elderly parents still live in Westcliffe Wednesday June 28, 2006. Behind him is a new development on a previously open field. 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)
