Besieged by fires, violence and political polarity, the Colorado governor’s second 15 months couldn’t be more different from the honeymoon period he enjoyed earlier in his term.

Thursday was just another day at the office for Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper. He woke to news that a fire raging in Black Forest had taken a deadly turn and grown into the most destructive in the state’s history. A member of his cabinet who had been with the administration from the start resigned. The state’s parole chief was fired, and a poll reflected widespread voter disapproval of the governor’s decision to indefinitely postpone the exe-

cution of a convicted murderer. Hickenlooper has come to expect trouble, but it hasn’t always been that way. Hickenlooper’s first 15 months in office could be described as nothing less than charmed. The Democrat’s pro-business bent and budget cuts gained the favor of Republican lawmakers. Shared power in the Legislature between his own party and the GOP stirred bitter fights among legislators, but insulated Hickenlooper from lightning-rod issues landing on his desk during the first year of his term. In May 2011, Durango Herald capitol re-

porter Joe Hanel reflected on Hickenlooper’s first legislative session as governor during a radio analysis show. “I look at the Legislature at the end of the year,” Hanel said on KUNC’s Capitol Conversation. “Just imagine a scorched earth battlefield with walking wounded all over the place, and then there’s John Hickenlooper, just kind of roller skating around smiling, because he came out of this looking great.” Within the next year, the governor’s See MISERY, Page A2

COLORADO SPRINGS — A parolee suspected of killing Colorado’s prisons chief had a list with him when he died that included the names and addresses of other Colorado officials, the El Paso County sheriff said Friday. Sheriff Terry Maketa said the document was found with Evan Ebel after Ebel was fatally wounded in a shootout with Texas authorities in March. Ebel is suspected of killing Colorado Department of Corrections chief Tom Clements at his home in El Paso County as well as a Denver-area pizza delivery driver, Nathan Leon, before he died in Texas. Maketa’s department is leading the investigation into Clements’ death. Maketa said Friday he did not recall if Clements’ name was on the list, and that even if it was, he would not discuss it publicly. The sheriff added that the list also included the names and addresses of some of Ebel’s friends. Authori-

Inmate who threatened Obama gets 7 years Man sent letters saying he was in ‘terrorist group’ and spit at FBI agent during interview.

By Robert Allen

A Larimer County inmate who threatened President Barack Obama and Sen. Michael Bennet and spat in an FBI agent’s face was sentenced this

week to seven years in federal prison. Thomas Daniel Sanchez, 25, pleaded guilty to mailing the threats in June 2011 while he was an inmate at the Larimer County Jail. The letter regarding Bennet stated that Sanchez was part of a “terrorist group,” and when FBI agents interviewed him later that day at the jail, the threats were reiterated, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Justice.

“At the end of the interview, Sanchez stood up and deliberately spit in the face and eyes of one of the FBI agents. When warned not to do that again, the defendant leaned forward and threatened the agent,” according to the news release. Afterward, Sanchez repeatedly called the FBI Fort Collins office and reiterated threats, saying he was “anSee THREAT, Page A2

ti-government” and “a known terrorist,” claiming to have guns and a plane, according to the news release. He continued repeating threats, including that he “fully intended to kill the president” through followup interviews and letters, including one to the Secret Service threatening Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and other government officials. “The FBI considers threats against the president and members of Congress, and assaults on federal agents as serious criminal violations,” said FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge Thomas Ravenelle in the news release. “Working with our partners, we will pursue these matters with vigor.” Sanchez had been sentenced earlier in 2011 to 210 days in jail for third-degree assault causing injury. He also admitted guilt in 2011to cases of fighting in public, criminal mischief, felony menacing and more.

ties say Ebel was a member of a white supremacist prison gang. In remarks published Friday, former Colorado parole director Tim Hand told The Denver Post that his and Clements’ names were on the list and that he received police protection because he feared retribution from gang members who were in state prison. Hand said police installed an alarm system in his Fort Collins home and assigned officers to guard his residence after his name came up as part of an investigation

Misery Continued from Page A1

skates had come off. Beginning with the Lower North Fork Fire in March 2012, Hickenlooper’s term began a descent into one of the darkest, most bizarre chapters in Colorado history that, if it were a work of fiction, could be dismissed as implausible. Blame some of it on forces far beyond Hickenlooper’s control and some on his political will.

Smoke on the horizon

Wildfire has been Colorado’s most persistent curse since Hickenlooper took office. The first was started by the state, when a controlled burn went wild and set off the Lower North Fork Fire in Jefferson County. The fire killed three people and destroyed 27 homes. Last summer’s High Park Fire near Fort Collins and Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs, along with the currently burning Black Forest Fire, have killed five people so far and destroyed more than 1,000 homes. “I never expected I would become some sort of an expert in fighting forest fires,” Hickenlooper said. But last year’s literal trial by fire prepared him for what this year’s continuing dry spell held in store. He credits that experience for mobilizing military air support to fight the Black Forest Fire much more quickly than in last year’s fires. “That’s because we learned some of the red tape that was there, but also because we built relationships,” Hickenlooper said. “As tough as the fires were last year, we tried to get the best out of it.”

Aurora massacre

“Horrific is the only word that comes close,” Hickenlooper said, reflecting on last July’s mass shooting that killed 12 and injured dozens of others at an Aurora movie theater. Swooping over the Waldo Canyon Fire in a helicopter and taking in visuals that he compared to a movie scene, Hickenlooper said he was sure he’d never see anything so shocking again. But one month later, when he saw the crime scene video from the Aurora shooting with victims’ bodies still lying in the theater, he was proven wrong. “The popcorn on the floor, the papers in every direction, you got a sense of what the terror was and the chaos,” he said. The tragedy inspired Hickenlooper to push for expanded access to mental health treatment and gun safety, steps the Democratcontrolled Legislature promptly took.

One little girl’s heartbreaking fate

Still reeling from the magnitude of the Aurora killings, Colorado’s collective concern turned to one little girl in the fall. Jessica Ridgeway, 10, disappeared on her way to school Oct. 5. Five days later, her dismembered body was found in an Arvada field. About two weeks passed before the arrest of teenager Austin Sigg. Despite the mass tragedies that preceded it, Hickenlooper said he wasn’t numb to the crime that he says broke

into Clements’ March 19 death, the Post reported. “You take out the top leadership of corrections like Tom Clements and Tim Hand, and you are talking about putting some stripes on people’s shoulders,” Hand told the newspaper. Maketa said he did not know if Hand’s name was on the list. He declined to comment on any of the other claims made by Hand. The Corrections Department announced Thursday that Hand had been dismissed, but it did not release the reason. Hand did not return a telephone message left by The Associated Press seeking comment. Corrections spokeswoman Alison Mor-

gan declined to comment on the Post report Friday. The Clements killing exposed flaws in Colorado’s criminal justice system. Ebel was released from prison four years early because of a clerical error at the court where he was sentenced. He cut his electronic monitoring bracelet several days before the killings, and parole officers didn’t determine that Ebel had fled for five days. Last week, state officials said Colorado judges have corrected the sentences of 124 inmates or parolees after an audit ordered after Clements’ slaying found additional errors. Also on Friday, Gov. John Hickenlooper named a for-

mer head of the Wisconsin’s Department of Corrections to replace Clements. Hickenlooper said that Rick Raemisch has experience as a deputy sheriff, prosecutor, elected sheriff and head of a state corrections department where he was responsible for more than 22,000 inmates, more than 73,000 people on probation or parole, and approximately 1,000 juveniles in institutions or under supervision. Raemisch joined Wisconsin’s Department of Corrections in 2003 and for the next four years worked as division administrator of community corrections, in which he had oversight of 68,000 probation and parole cases.

He then worked as deputy secretary and later as head of the department. Since 2011, Raemisch has worked as dean of the School of Human and Protective Services at Madison College in Madison, overseeing programs in emergency medical services, criminal justice, fire, human services and early childcare education. “He has a great understanding of crime and the criminal mind from his work as a sheriff and prosecutor,” Hickenlooper said in a prepared statement. “He also understands that most people who are incarcerated will return to our communities and need job skills and treatment.”

the state’s collective heart. “Pure pain,” he said, “that even now makes my stomach twist — perhaps the worst story of them all. There are awful components of all these stories, unbelievably deep tragedies, but there is something about the Jessica Ridgeway tragedy that’s almost unbearable.”

“Who’s writing this script? And if God has a plan, which I believe he does, there’s obviously a reason why I’ve had to work through this year. I can only believe there’s some benefit at the end of the tunnel.”

and former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo and Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler. “The bottom line: It’s been one of the hardest years a governor could go through, and I still love this job,” Hickenlooper said. “I don’t wish for a minute that someone else was making the decisions.”

you can’t function. It’s tough, but you work through it. My mom was widowed twice in the span of 10 years and raised four kids. She always got out of bed in the morning.” Alone in the governor’s mansion late at night, Hickenlooper said he reflects on the families of the Aurora shooting victims, the firefighters in Colorado’s forests battling to save strangers’ homes; and on the worst of days, he finds strength. “Some folks, when they go through the worst moments in their lives, like the people in the movie theater, were so brave and so strong,” he said. “When you get a minute alone to reflect, that lifts you up.” Even a self-described “glass-half-full kind of person” like Hickenlooper can’t deny that the past 15 months have held more tumult than he could have predicted. “Who’s writing this script?” he said. “And if God has a plan, which I believe he does, there’s obviously a reason why I’ve had to work through this year. I can only believe there’s some benefit at the end of the tunnel.”

Tragic triangle of acquaintance

Disbelief washed over Hickenlooper throughout the saga of Colorado Department of Corrections chief Tom Clements’ murder and the ensuing events. “It was one of the most difficult things in terms of raw emotion, just because I knew him so well,” the governor said. Learning that he had ties to the man who is believed to have killed Clements took Hickenlooper further aback. Evan Ebel, a former Colorado prison inmate, died in a shootout with law officers in Texas. Hickenlooper had known Ebel’s father for decades. They met working in the oil and gas industry. “I will never forget when they’re showing me the slideshow of this kid in the shootout in Texas,” Hickenlooper said. “I didn’t recognize him. I hadn’t seen him in a decade. His name flashed up there, and I made them back up a slide. It’s incomprehensible. I continue to feel so badly for his parents.” Ebel belonged to a white supremacist gang.

Politics so unusual

The real-world problems that peppered Hickenlooper during the past 15 months drown out his political headaches — which have undeniably multiplied during the same span. Though still regarded by many as an artful dodger of direct answers, Hickenlooper stood up for the polarizing choices he has made. “I haven’t second-guessed any of these (decisions),” he said. “I’m the same person I was 18 months ago or 10 years ago, and I think I would have come to the same conclusions. Some of the things we could have talked about differently or been a little more implicit about points of view, but these are tough issues. One side or the other is going to be furious.” Gun-control measures to ban high capacity magazines and require universal background checks on gun sales and transfers between individuals drew sharp criticism of the governor from Second Amendment advocates, including Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith. More than 50 sheriffs joined to sue the state seeking to overturn the new gun laws. “For nine or 10 bucks and a modest inconvenience, keeping guns out of the hands of 2,500 dangerous individuals is a good thing,” Hickenlooper said, citing the number of ineligible gun owners who try to buy weapons annually in the state. Last month, Hickenlooper indefinitely postponed the execution of Nathan Dunlap, who was convicted and sentenced to death for a 1993 shooting that killed four people at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant. “The Dunlap case, it’s not the same as having one of your close friends and associates assassinated,” Hickenlooper said, putting the pres-


sure of his decision in perspective. The governor is convinced that Dunlap is bipolar and would not have been sentenced to death if that evidence had been presented. A poll released Thursday by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute showed disapproval of the governor’s decision outweighed approval 67 percent to 27 percent, and 74 percent of respondents to the poll said the death penalty will be an important factor in who they vote for in the 2014 governor’s race. “We knew we were going to get a firestorm of anger as a response to it,” Hickenlooper said. “There are some parts to this job that aren’t pleasing, but you’ve got to stand by your convictions.” Hickenlooper hasn’t yet filed candidacy paperwork to seek re-election but said he soon will. Challengers who’ve entered the race seeking the Republican nomination include immigration hardliner

Alone with his thoughts

In the background of all the other struggles he has encountered, Hickenlooper has been quietly dealing with a split from his wife last year. “Some days I do have to work a little harder because of it,” he said. “If you’re the governor of Colorado, you don’t get to stay in bed all day.” The governor said when emotions get heavy, he leans on his experiences running a business and lessons learned from his mother. “I knew when I walked into that restaurant, I had to be a different person. I couldn’t carry it around with me,” Hickenlooper said. “Just because you’re going through something sad doesn’t mean

Diamonds in their eyes Coloradoan readers discuss the barriers to Fort Collins reaching Diamond level bike friendliness.

“The city is doing its best, no doubt, but most Fort Collins drivers are an absolute nightmare for cyclists. And don’t get me started about the cops!”

“I believe the core issue is about responsible citizenry, particularly when it concerns traffic habits. There are irresponsible cyclists for sure; there are at least an equal number of irresponsible motorists. Somehow, we need to enculturate public safety as a common ethos.”

“Please educate bicyclists on correct rules of the road. I see more bicyclists who break the rules and then get angry at the driver who almost hit them because of it.” BRENNA OLWINE via


“If incoming freshmen students were not allowed to bring their cars during their first year, there would be 3,000 less cars introduced each August, more cyclists on the roadways and a bicyclist and driver education opportunity of epic proportions.”

Emergency declaration triggers $15K for fire Gov. Hickenlooper signs disaster emergency declaration as the Big Meadows Fire continues to burn in Rocky Mountain National Park.

By Coloradoan staff and news services

A burnout operation to reduce fire fuels at the Big Meadows Fire was deemed a success by Rocky Mountain National Park officials Friday night.

The burnout was meant to prevent movement of the fire to the south, along the southern flank of the fire in the Tonahutu Creek drainage. Park officials estimated fire to be 353 acres and 30 percent contained on Friday morning. A flyover was planned Friday night to measure fire activity, and acreage is expected to increase. Gov. John Hickenlooper on Friday declared a disaster emergency

for the Big Meadows Fire, clearing the way for $15,000 from the Disaster Emergency Fund to help pay for the use of a National Guard helicopter. Firefighting resources Saturday will include an attack module of eight firefighters, four interagency 20-person Type 1 hotshot crews, two fire engines, two air attack small planes used for fire reconnaissance, two light helicopters, a medium helicopter and one

large heavy helicopter. A National Guard Blackhawk helicopter remains on standby to assist fire operations in the event of a medical emergency. Five closed trails near the fire area will reopen at 8 a.m. Saturday: the two Tonahutu Spur Trails (one beginning at the Kawuneeche Visitor Center, the other near the North Inlet trailhead); the Grand Lake Lodge Spur Trail; the Timber Lake Trail (day use only); and the trail

which branches toward Mount Ida from Milner Pass. Onahu Trail, the Green Mountain Trail, and the lower Tonahutu Trail will remain closed. Park officials say the Big Meadows Fire could smolder all summer. Big Meadows, the grassy area west of the Continental Divide where the fire is burning, is about 43 miles southwest of Fort Collins and five miles north of Grand Lake.

Ex-Windsor principal pleads guilty to menacing By Erin Udell twitter facebook newsletter

Former Windsor Middle School principal Doug Englert pleaded guilty to menacing as an act of domestic violence for an incident in which he punched his wife. The charge, a class 5 felony, stems from a domestic violence incident that occurred at Englert’s home on Nov. 6, 2012. According to Doug his arrest affidavit, Englert Englert and his wife, Kelly, got into an argument, which ended with him punching her in the side multiple times. At the time of his arrest, Englert’s wife told police he had been physically abusive to

her before. Two counts of second-degree assault and harassment were dismissed during Friday’s hearing at the Weld County District Court. Englert’s wife was present at the hearing, where she asked the judge to modify the protection order that prohibits them from seeing each other in public without a third party present. The judge agreed, authorizing the modification but still not allowing Englert and his wife to meet at their home in Windsor. Doug Englert worked at Windsor Middle School from 1994 until his arrest, when he was put on administrative leave. The Weld-Re4 school board later approved his request to retire. His next court appearance will be for a sentencing hearing on 1:30 p.m. July 25.

Lawsuit over Timnath church explosion dropped Insurer: Contractor wasn’t responsible when he hit mismarked gas line.

By Trevor Hughes

Nearly four years after an explosion blew up the historic Timnath Presbyterian Church, the church’s insurer has acknowledged the contractor that hit the gas line wasn’t at fault. In a court filing this week, Guideone Mutual Insurance dropped its claim against Gerrard Excavating for the Aug. 8, 2009, explosion. Ger-

rard, a longtime local contractor, was rebuilding portions of downtown Timnath when a worker hit a mismarked gas line. Gerrard had long argued that the workers responsible for marking the gas lines had failed to do their job. No one was hurt in the explosion and subsequent fire. “It’s been nearly four years; we’re thankful no one was hurt and the church was able to rebuild, but it’s good to have this behind us,” said Garry Gerrard, the company’s president. Built in 1888, the church is the only house of worship in the town across Interstate 25

from Fort Collins. The building has seen the road in front of it go from dirt to pavement, seen the town change from a frontier village, and welcomed generations of worshipers. When the worker hit the mismarked line, the church’s basement filled with gas and then exploded. “It was like a cartoon,” said Russ Skinner, who was about 20 feet away when the explosion and subsequent flash fire occurred. “It went straight up and expanded and then came back down. It missed landing on the foundation by half an inch. We weren’t even sure it

had really happened.” Experts say the sanctuary probably also would have been destroyed but for the fact that portions of the church’s foundation were rebuilt during construction of the fellowship hall in 1988. The sanctuary, where services are held, was built in 1888. A piece of that foundation uncovered during the 1988 construction collapsed during a rainstorm and had to be replaced. It likely saved the church. The explosion happened on a Saturday, and the congregation of about 120 worshipers met Sundays at a nearby

policy paid for repairs and also for upgrades required to bring the entire building up to modern fire code, including a sprinkler system. The congregation moved back into the church in September 2010. A contractor hit a second gas line in October 2009, causing a small leak and prompting the precautionary evacuation of Timnath Elementary School.

school. Through two years of reconstruction, congregants met weekly, usually at the school. They picked up a handful of new worshipers and got so good at packing and unpacking their trailer of supplies that they jokingly renamed themselves the “Timnath Portable Church.” They also occasionally met outside the church under a tent.

Crews hold Black Forest wildfire in check The number of destroyed homes rises to 419, but officials say the fire is 30 percent contained.

By Dan Elliott Associated Press


battling the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history say they were better prepared to take on the flames because of lessons learned fighting last year’s Waldo Canyon Fire, a similarly devastating blaze that devoured hundreds of homes and killed two people only a few miles away. When the thickly wooded rural region north of Colorado Springs known as the Black Forest began to burn this week, authorities swiftly evacuated tens of thousands

of people from a swath of land larger than the Denver metropolitan area. They immediately began hand-counting destroyed houses to get information out to nervous homeowners. And they rushed federal troops and aircraft into action, cutting the red tape that had grounded those resources a year ago as smoke clouds billowed over Colorado. Within an hour, El Paso County had its emergency operations center up and running and summoned aircraft from nearby Peterson Air Force base. Rep. Doug Lamborn called the federal center in Idaho that coordinates western firefighting to speed up the process of clearing the planes. Gov. John Hickenlooper mobilized the Colorado National Guard, and troops began to help secure the rap-

idly growing evacuation zone. “We’ve done it all before and so there was no question,” said Nicola Sapp, El Paso County budget officer. “Everybody jumped right in.” The cause of the blaze is under investigation. Before the fire got out of hand, authorities evacuated people miles away, sending deputies door-to-door to ensure everyone left. They remembered the speed at which last year’s fire spread. “That’s one thing I’ll never forget — how fast that Waldo Canyon Fire moved,” said El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa, who was bowled over by how rapidly help arrived this week. The latest blaze raced through the rural reaches of the metro area, doubling in size overnight and charring as many as 419 homes. The bodies of two people were found inside their garage Thursday, their car doors open as if they had been about to flee. Some Waldo Canyon evacuees endured days without knowing whether their houses survived. So Maketa sent deputies in at night to survey neighborhoods. It was a painstaking, risky process as ashes smoldered around them while they strained to determine the addresses of charred properties. About 24 hours later, the department began releasing the addresses of houses that were lost. It might take two weeks to get a perfect count, but the sheriff decided to err on the side of rapidly releasing information. “I’d rather disappoint one person, but get it right to another thousand,” Maketa said. By Friday, firefighters reported some progress. The blaze was only 5 percent contained, and could take another devastating turn at any moment. In a sign of the quick improvement, authorities lifted evacuation orders in a northern slice of Colorado Springs, the state’s second

Hickenlooper toured the zone and said he was happily drenched. “I’m soaking wet and I’m a little chilly, but I’ve never been so happy to say this,” he said. The fire zone remained at 25 square miles, thanks to lighter winds and firefighters’ efforts to stamp out flareups. Sheriff’s deputies patrolling for looters directed crews to dozens of hot spots. For the first time since the fire started Tuesday, authorities seemed optimistic that they could stop it. “Hopefully if we can build off the success we had last night, we can start to turn the corner,” said Rich Harvey, the incident commander. Harvey is the federal official who also oversaw the battle against the Waldo Canyon Fire. He said it was just coincidence that Colorado Springs saw two such destructive blazes in 12 months. “This could happen anywhere,” he said. Still, the coincidence is a reminder of the challenges of tamping down fires across the West, especially with growing populations, rising temperatures and a historic drought. Developers describe Black Forest as the largest contiguous stretch of ponderosa pine in the United States — a thick, wide carpet of vegetation rolling down from the Rampart Range that thins out to the high grasslands of Colorado’s Eastern Plains. Once home to rural towns and summer cabins, it is now dotted with million-dollar homes and gated communities as a result of the state’s population boom over the past two decades.

Waldo Canyon was one of the last subdivisions in Colorado Springs, bumping up directly against the pine-clad wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. In Canon City, 50 miles southwest of Black Forest, the 5-square-mile Royal Gorge Fire was 40 percent contained and evacuation orders were lifted. Royal Gorge Bridge & Park officials said the park lost 48 buildings. The park’s suspension bridge above the Arkansas River is still up. An aerial tram was destroyed. A 350-acre fire sparked by lightning in Rocky Mfountain National Park is 30 percent contained. Other fires burned in California and New Mexico. A New Mexico fire reached the historic mining town of Kingston, but crews protected buildings there.

Lastly, a special to thanks to all the families and children who participated! Way to go, O’Dea!” Dee Colombini, O’Dea Core Knowledge Elementary Walk and Wheel Champion “While volunteering June 4 for the New Horizons Band Camp held at CSU, I misplaced my wallet. Thumbs-up to the good Samaritan who turned the wallet intact in to the campus police as well as to the helpful police staff who returned the wallet to me.” Martin Limbird, Fort Collins “A gigantic thumbs-up to Compass Cider House for diverting the majority of their construction demolition from the landfill by teaming with Resource Colorado, which took the materials to be utilized for the community and sourced items such as metals for recycling. A gigantic thumbs-down to the majority of commercial and residential contractors who park a 40yard dumpster and toss everything into it week after week, then cart it to the landfill. Throw it away? There is no away. The contractors state cost, schedule and space constraints are what keep them from waste management. Yet it costs to throw it away. I watched in dismay as flagstone and brick from a historic building in Old Town was carted to the dumpster. So sad. It is time to follow the example of Compass Cider and others who have proven waste diversion and construction waste management is successful and cost effective.” Renee Sherman, Sherman Design LLC “A huge thumbs-up to Jason Stentz, owner of Culver’s of Fort Collins, who gives a pint of ice cream to those who donate a pint of blood at the Garth Englund Blood Center.” Jan Carpenter, Fort Collins “Two thumbs-up to Jayme Halsey, TOPS Arsenal soccer league, and the awesome volunteers who created an inspiring and fun soccer experience for some seriously cool kids!” Laura Decatur, parent, Fort Collins

Bravo! You thought of your constituents first. This loan for ill-defined purposes would have caused property owners with little chance of benefiting to pay to get FEMA removal of flood plain designation on speculative lands.” Jim Fry, The Boxelder Coalition “A big thank-you to Gwen Garrison and her staff at Front Range Community College (Tom Larsen, Kai Renouf and Cynthia Treffer) for helping make the 22nd annual Fort Collins Children’s Water Festival such a success on May 15. It was as important to them as it was to us to make the festival a memorable day for our community’s third-grade students.

Anyone who wonders why our educational system is failing doesn’t have to look any further than the front page of Thursday’s Coloradoan to find a hint. We are informed that CSU’s football coach has been awarded a bonus of $150,000 for maintaining the academic progress of his players. Checking further on the sports page, we learn that this practice is practically universal throughout college football, and some other sports as well. All the coaches have to do to win this bonus is to make sure that their players stay academically eligible — not graduate, not excel in class, just remain eligible. In my many years as a college professor, I don’t ever remember bonuses being offered to me or my colleagues for getting our students to excel in class. Occasionally, I received a letter from the university head informing me that some of my graduating students had mentioned me as a positive influence, but the letters never came with a check. I guess we could argue that making sure that our college athletes maintain academic standards is valuable because these are the young men and women who, after they graduate, will be contributing to our nation’s scientific and technological progress. David McKibbin, Fort Collins

Story well-received, with clarifications

I sincerely appreciate the coverage the Coloradoan and Sarah Kyle afforded the high school class of 1943, when those able to attend did so on June 2. We few met in the private dining area of Mulligan’s, not “in a back room,” as reported, where all enjoyed the delicious meal furnished the graduates by the restaurant/pub owners. Several took exception to a sentence used by Kyle. Nothing extremely important, but a bit of clarification is in order. Sarah wrote that the “females” left behind, when the “jokesters, jocks and brains” went off to war, did their best to support them. I wasn’t one of those. Just a kid after his diploma so that I could volunteer for the Army Air Corps on my 18th birthday. I realize this is another time, but a few of us vintage folks still remember what we were taught in school. In “our time,” the word “jock” was locker room talk. In Kyle’s article, perhaps “those of athletic prowess” would have been more suitable. With the above exceptions, the coverage and the article was well-written and received. Thank you again, Coloradoan and Sarah Kyle, and to Mulligan’s for their hospitality. Jack L. Miller, Fort Collins

Immigration overhaul has broad support, will fix problems Recently, Glen Colton and Trudy Haines, his wife, wrote soapboxes in opposition to the bipartisan immigration overhaul bill currently making its way through Congress. The bill was written by a group of Republican and Democratic senators, including our own Michael Bennet. Debate on it started in the Senate this week. In both columns, Colton and his wife cited a recent Heritage Foundation report that claimed that immigration reform would cost $6.3 trillion. This report is flawed and has been widely rebuked. In fact, shortly after its release, its coauthor resigned amid mounting backlash. Instead of costing us, experts on both sides of the aisle have estimated that fixing our broken immigration system, along the lines of the proposal in the Senate, would have a significant positive effect on our economy. For example, the well-respected conservative economist Douglas Holtz-Eakin — former director of the Congressional Budget Office — reported that reforming our broken system would cut the deficit by $2.7 trillion; it could also raise GDP by nearly 1 percentage point and per capita income by $1,700. Highlighting the potential economic benefits, more than 100 conservative economists — including Arthur B. Laffer, a former economic adviser to President Ronald Reagan — have urged Congress to pass the bill. In Colorado alone, it’s estimated that our immigrant population added $42 billion to our economy in 2011. These immigrants eat at our restaurants, shop in our stores and ski on our slopes; they also start businesses and create jobs. They don’t take away jobs from American workers, as Colton and Haines assert. One out of every10 entrepreneurs in our state is an immigrant. Furthermore, the bill reforms our current guest worker programs to better meet the needs of both businesses and workers. It includes important worker protections to ensure that American employees aren’t undercut. That’s why it’s endorsed by leading business, agriculture, labor and farm worker groups, ranging from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO to the United Farm Workers of America and the American Farm Bureau Federation. This broad coalition, representing interests that often don’t see eye-to-eye, is historic. Right now, Americans are competing with undocumented workers who are often paid “under the table” and forced to put up with substandard working conditions. But when workers are paid “over the table,” which this bill proposes, wages increase. And when businesses have access to high-quality talent, they will grow and succeed, ultimately creating more American jobs and moving our economy forward, not holding us back. Colton is right in his assertion that we are living in a time of unprecedented crises. That’s exactly why we need to come together on every level — locally, nationally and globally — to find solutions to the most challenging problems our planet has ever faced, problems that Colton clearly enumerated: water and resource issues, crowding and congestion, loss of wildlife and farmland, increasing greenhouse gas emissions, food insecurity. Yet, by conflating immigration with overpopulation, Colton chooses instead to divide. Only when we unite can we actually begin to solve these significant problems. The immigration overhaul bill will get our country back on track to fix our broken immigration system. We are a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws; talented, creative people live in our midst. This bill will move us in the right direction. Jan Peterson is a Fort Collins resident.

In Fort Collins-Loveland, less than 7 percent owe more than their homes are currently worth.

By Pat Ferrier

Fewer than 7 percent of homeowners in Fort Collins-Loveland were underwater on their mortgages at the end of the first quarter, an im-

provement from the end of 2012, when 7.7 percent owed more than their homes were worth. Negative equity can occur because of a decline in value, an increase in mortgage debt or a combination of both. In Fort Collins-Loveland, 6.9 percent, or 5,047, of all residential properties with a mortgage were in negative equity as of the first quarter 2013 compared with 7.7 percent, or

5,618 properties, in the fourth quarter of 2012, according to CoreLogic home equity data. An additional 2,979 residential properties were in near negative equity for first quarter 2013 compared with 3,517 in fourth quarter 2012. “The negative equity burden continues to recede across the country thanks largely to rising home prices,” said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic.

“We are still far below peak home price levels, but tight supplies in many areas coupled with continued demand for single-family homes should help us close the gap.” Larimer County is following a nationwide trend showing about 850,000 more residential properties returned to positive equity in the first quarter.

New Airbus A350 takes its first flight

European planemaker competes with Boeing in wide-body market.

ation expert and former airline pilot.

By Lori Hinnant

Airbus’ potential customers, the world’s airlines, have all been squeezed by high aviation fuel costs and a fall in passengers because of the struggling world economy. Carriers are looking for ways to run their fleets more cost-effectively. More than half of the twin-engine A350 consists of lightweight carbon-fiber designed to save on jet fuel, which makes up half the cost of long-haul flights. Airbus claims the A350 is 25 percent more fuel-efficient than comparable planes. The A350, which was delayed for two years as Airbus hashed out a new design, is a competitor to the 787 — minus the lithium ion batteries now under investigation for unexplained smoldering. Airbus abandoned its plans to use the lithium ion batteries despite their advantages in weight, power and recharging speed. “The A350 has the same innovations more or less as the Dreamliner, the 787,” said Feldzer. “The same amount or proportion of carbon for the lightness of the material, just as many electrical devices.” Boeing’s list prices for its 787 line range from $206 million to $243 million. Airbus lists prices ranging from $254 million to $332 million, and had 613 orders as of May, compared with 890 orders for the 787. Steep discounts are common on large orders, although the details are rarely made public.

Associated Press

PARIS — Airbus sent a new wide-body plane into the skies Friday that sets the stage for intensifying competition with U.S. rival Boeing — with consequences for jobs, airlines’ investments and the reputations of the powerful planemakers. After years of delays and a revamp that cost billions, the A350 cruised for four hours in partly cloudy skies above Toulouse in southern France. Most importantly, it then landed safely. It met ear-toear smiles — and some sighs of relief — among the Airbus engineers and executives who helped the plane reach its maiden journey. The flight marks a key step on the path to full certification for the jet, which can carry between 250 and 400 passengers and is the European aircraft-maker’s best hope for catching up in a long-haul market dominated by Boeing’s 777 and the 787, known as the Dreamliner.

Airline official watches nervously

“At the end of the day you need to make it real, and this is the time for making it real. So I am very proud already,” Didier Evrard, head of the A350 program, said while watching the flight. “But I will be still nervous until it comes back.” Airspace over Toulouse, where Airbus has its headquarters, was closed for both take-off and landing. With distinctive, upturned wing tips, the plane had a great big “A350” painted across its belly, heightening anticipation that it will fly at the Paris Air Show next week. Airbus hopes Friday’s flight will bring it momentum heading into next week’s Paris Air Show, which is already shaping up as a battle of the wide-body planes. “There is a lot of money at stake, a lot of employment at stake. This is an extremely important political, social and economic issue,” said Gerald Feldzer, a French avi-

US planning to show less urgency at G-8 for European growth By Jim Kuhnhenn Associated Press

WASHINGTON — When lead-

ers of the nation’s biggest economies gathered at the presidential retreat of Camp David last year, European elections had rattled the continent with a rejection of austerity measures. President Barack Obama was himself seeking re-election. The sense of urgency was palpable as Obama made an emphatic pitch for Europe’s powers to focus more on economic growth. These days, as Obama prepares for another summit of the Group of Eight industrial nations next week, the furor has died down. Financial tensions in Europe have eased, highdebt nations have been given more time to work on their fiscal cuts, and even the language has changed from “austerity” to “growth-oriented structural reforms.” “The context of that discussion has changed a lot over the past year,” said Caroline Atkinson, a senior White House international economics adviser. While the U.S. still wants Europe to temper the debt trimming and increase global demand, Obama is not expected to be as insistent with other G-8 leaders this time as they meet at a luxury hotel

erties with a mortgage is 32.8 percent. With mortgage interest rates still below 4 percent and home sales heating up, the average selling price of homes in the Fort Collins area was

and golf resort beside Lough Erne in Northern Ireland’s County Fermanagh lakeland. Moreover, Obama arrives at the G-8 with Syria foremost on his mind. His decision to authorize lethal aid to Syrian rebels inevitably will be front and center during the summit, complicated by the attendance of Russian President Vladimir Putin, one of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s most powerful backers. Obama is scheduled to arrive Monday in Northern Ireland and immediately deliver a speech in Belfast largely focused on U.S. support for the peace process there. The global economy will be the topic of the first meeting with G-8 leaders at the summit site, followed by a one-on-one meeting with Putin. After the summit ends, Obama will head to Berlin for meetings with German officials, including Chancellor Angela Merkel. The two will address reporters at a news conference afterward before Obama delivers a speech on the eastern side of the historic Brandenburg Gate. Obama also will be the guest of honor at a reception and dinner hosted by Merkel.

IN BRIEF WASHINGTON Attorney general: Leaker will be held accountable

$638 BIL DEFENSE BILL PASSED BY US HOUSE Legislation includes new penalties for rape, sexual assault in military.

By Donna Cassata and Richard Lardner Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The House over-

whelmingly passed a sweeping, $638 billion defense bill Friday that imposes new punishments on members of the armed services found guilty of rape or sexual assault, as outrage over the crisis in the military has galvanized Congress. Ignoring a White House veto threat, the Republican-controlled House voted 315-108 for the legislation, which would block President Barack Obama from closing the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and limit his efforts to reduce nuclear weapons.

The House bill containing the provisions on sex-related crimes that the Obama administration supports — as well as the detention policies that it vigorously opposes — must be reconciled with a Senate version before heading to the president’s desk. The Senate measure, expected to be considered this fall, costs $13 billion less than the House bill — a budgetary difference that also will have to be resolved. The defense policy bill authorizes money for aircraft, weapons, ships, personnel and the war in Afghanistan in the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1 while blocking the Pentagon from closing domestic bases. Shocking statistics that as many as 26,000 military members may have been sexually assaulted last year and high-profile incidences at the service academies and in the ranks pushed lawmakers to tackle the growing

problem of sexual assault. A single case of a commander overturning a conviction — a decision that even Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel couldn’t change — drove Congress to act swiftly. Both the House and Senate were determined to shake up the military’s culture in ways that would ensure victims that if they reported crimes, their allegations wouldn’t be discounted or their careers jeopardized. “This is a self-inflicted wound that has no place in the military,” Rep. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., who lost both legs and partial use of an arm in a rocket-propelled grenade attack in Iraq, told her colleagues in the final moments of debate on Friday. The House bill would require a mandatory minimum sentence of two years in prison for a member of the armed services convicted of rape or sexual assault in a military court.

Attorney General Eric Holder says national security has been damaged as a result of leaks about a pair of government surveillance programs and that the U.S. will punish the person who is responsible. The attorney general made the comment in Dublin, Ireland, when asked by reporters why the U.S. hasn’t taken steps to arrest former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. Holder said the government is investigating and that he is confident the person who is responsible will be held accountable.

DONALDSONVILLE, LA. Another Louisiana plant blast kills 1, injures 5 One person was killed and several others were injured Friday in an explosion at a south Louisiana chemical plant, only miles from where another blast the previous day led to the deaths of two plant workers, authorities said. Louisiana State Police Trooper Jared Sandifer said five people were injured, three of them critically, and were taken to area hospitals following Friday evening’s explosion at a CF Industries facility in Donaldsonville. Sandifer said the explosion didn’t pose a threat to the area surrounding the plant.

ANKARA, TURKEY Report: 73 Syrian officers, families ‘seeking refuge’


As many as 73 Syrian military officers — including seven generals and 20 colonels — have crossed the border with their families “seeking refuge” in Turkey, the country’s state-run news agency reported Friday. The Anadolu Agency said the group arrived in the border town of Reyhanli and were taken to a Turkish refugee camp that houses military officers who have defected from the Syrian army. Turkish Foreign Ministry officials could not immediately confirm the report. The report of the defections come after President Barack Obama authorized lethal aid to Syrian rebels following a U.S. announcement that it had conclusive evidence that the Syrian regime used chemical weapons against opposition forces.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s authorization of military aid to the Syrian rebels “dramatically” increases U.S. support for the opposition, the White House said Friday, while acknowledging that it will take time for the supplies to reach fighters struggling in their clashes with Syrian President Bashar Assad. U.S. officials said the new aid would include weapons and ammunition and comes in response to firmer evidence from the White House of chemical weapons use by Assad’s regime. “There’s already material that’s been flowing to the opposition and that will continue in the weeks to come,” said Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser. Obama has said the use of chemical weapons would cross a “red line,” suggesting greater American intervention. While a small percentage of the 93,000 people reportedly killed in Syria are said to have died from chemical weapons — U.S. intelligence puts the number at 100 to 150 —

the White House views the deployment of the deadly agents as a flouting of international norms. Rhodes said Obama made the decision to authorize military aid to the rebels over the past few weeks. He also defended the president’s caution on the issue, saying “these are not steps the president takes lightly.”

Scope unclear

The full scope of the assistance authorized by the White House is still unclear. But the administration could give the rebels a range of weapons, including small arms, assault rifles, shoulder-fired rocket-propelled grenades and other anti-tank missiles. In Syria Friday, the Foreign Ministry said, “The White House has issued a statement full of lies about the use of chemical weapons in Syria based on fabricated information. The United States is using cheap tactics to justify President Barack Obama’s decision to arm the Syrian opposition.” And in Moscow, President Vladimir Putin’s foreign affairs adviser said Russia not convinced with Washington’s claim that Syrian regime had used chemical

weapons against the opposition. Yuri Ushakov told reporters the information provided by U.S. officials to Russia “didn’t look convincing.” Rhodes, in response to Ushakov’s comments, said the U.S. had “very firm” evidence, including physiological samples of sarin use.

Rebels eager for aid

The commander of the main Western-backed rebel group fighting in Syria said he hoped that U.S. weapons will be in the hands of rebels in the near future, noting it would boost the spirits of the fighters on the ground. “We hope to have the weapons and ammunition that we need in the near future,” Gen. Salim Idris told AlArabiya TV. “This will surely reflect positively on the rebels’ morale, which is high despite attempts by the regime, Hezbollah and Iran to show that their morale after the fall of Qusair deteriorated,” he said, referring to the town near the border with Lebanon. Obama’s opposition to sending American troops into Syria makes it less likely the U.S. will provide sophisticated arms or anti-aircraft weapons that would require large-scale training. Administration officials are also worried about weapons ending up in the hands of terrorist groups.

Officials say a heavily armed group has ambushed and killed eight Guatemalan police officers in a township about 120 miles west of the capital, Guatemala City. Cecilio Chacaj of the municipal firefighters department says the victims had multiple gunshot wounds and that one died in the hospital after the Thursday night attack. The bodies of the others were found in the police station. Deputy Interior Minister Eddy Juarez confirmed late Thursday that deputy police inspector Cesar Augusto Garcia was kidnapped in the attack. President Otto Perez said Friday that the attackers were part of a band of drug traffickers.

LONDON Prince Philip ‘much better,’ Charles reports after visit Prince Charles has visited his father, Prince Philip, in the hospital and reported that he is doing much better after his abdominal surgery. Philip, who earlier this week spent his 92nd birthday in the hospital, received a flurry of family visits Friday. Charles and his wife, Camilla, arrived at the London Clinic shortly before his sons, William and Harry, joined them. Officials say that Queen Elizabeth II’s husband is recovering well after surgery last Friday. He will continue to be hospitalized for several days before going into convalescence for about two months. When asked by reporters waiting outside the clinic about his father, Charles smiled and said “much better.” — Wire services

Tea party scandal could lead to IRS shake-up Congress is investigating the targeting of conservative groups.

By Gregory Korte USA Today

WASHINGTON — The tea party

targeting scandal shows the need for a major shake-up of the Internal Revenue Service, the chairmen of Congress’s two taxwriting committees said Friday morning. “There does need to be a fundamental restructuring,” said Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. “There are real problems here. The Cincinnati office is almost cut off from D.C. ... You have 90,000 employees, it’s tough to manage them all.” The IRS office in Cincinnati is at the center of the scandal because that’s where every application for tax-exempt status is first processed. Transcripts of interviews with IRS employees there show that low-level employees first raised questions about tea party groups seeking tax-exempt status in 2010 but that Washington supervisors micromanaged the process of those applications. The tea party groups were channeled into a separate, more stringent review process that delayed their approvals for months or years. An inspector general’s report last month found that when top IRS officials learned of the targeting in 2011, they failed to immediately stop it or report it to Congress. Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., said top leadership of the IRS was “so out of touch, almost rising to the level of wrongdoing.” “This looks like, at best, a complete management failure and, at worst, intentional,” said Camp, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. “We don’t know that yet. We really need to know all the facts.” Both chairmen said they’re still in the early stages of investigating the tea party affair.

UK to start regulating e-cigarettes as medicines By Maria Cheng Associated Press

LONDON — Britain will start regulating electronic cigarettes and other products containing nicotine as medicines, according to the country’s top regulator. E-cigarettes are battery-operated products that turn nicotine into a vapor. The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency said it would treat e-cigarettes as medicines, “so that people using these products have the confidence they are safe, are of the right quality and work.” E-cigarettes and other nicotine products will be licensed in the U.K. from 2016, giving manufacturers time to ensure their products comply with standards for medicines. The U.K. regulator says e-cigarettes aren’t recommended for use until then, but it won’t ban them entirely. “While it’s best to quit completely, I realize that not every smoker can and it is much better to get nicotine from safer sources such as nicotine replacement therapy,” Britain’s chief medical officer, Sally Davies, said in a statement.





Deck collapses at Miami-area sports bar Engineers looking at why structure buckled.

Newtown event marks 6 months since school massacre By John Christoffersen

The outdoor deck at a popular Miami-area sports bar partially collapsed during the NBA Finals, sending dozens of people into the shallow waters of Biscayne Bay. The accident occurred around 9:45 p.m. Thursday as customers were watching the Miami Heat play the San Antonio Spurs. Miami-Dade Fire Chief David Downey said 24 people were taken to area hospitals. Many had cuts and bruises, though one person suffered a fracture, a fire official said. Two people were in serious condition. Authorities said about 100 people were on the deck of Shucker’s Bar & Grill in North Bay Village, north of Miami Beach, when it gave way. The deck was about 8 to 10 feet above the water’s surface, about the same height as a sea wall that runs along the bay. Friday morning, a small

Divers search the water after a deck collapsed Thursday night.

U.S. Coast Guard vessel was anchored off shore. The dock, which collapsed in a V-shape, was strewn with large potted palms, green plastic chairs and tables, and umbrellas. “I’m trying to see why the supports collapsed,” structural engineer Morgan Villanueva said Friday as he arrived to inspect the dock. He said it appears a main beam

There was initially some concern that people might have been trapped in the water beneath the crumpled deck. But divers searched the waters as helicopters overhead shined spotlights onto the scene, and Downey said later that everyone was accounted for. North Bay Village is a small island in Biscayne Bay with a strip of restaurants, hotels, houses and condos that is attached by causeways to the mainland and also to Miami Beach. Pouring rain fell early Friday near the Shuckers site, where a reporter later observed pilings sticking out of the water where the deck once stood. Wood, chairs and palm trees were piled together in the water.

on the western edge of the dock buckled, creating the collapse. Villanueva said Florida building codes typically call for a deck that can support about 100 pounds per square foot. “If people (watching the NBA Finals) were excited and jumping, it’s going to be an additional load,” he said.

Right after the collapse, sports bar customers — and later rescuers — helped people from the water amid yelling, crying and a rush to find people who might be submerged. One witness, Martin Torres, 42, of Los Angeles, said he was inside the sports bar with family and friends when he heard what sounded like a loud explosion. At first, he thought a boat had struck the deck. He said he looked outside and saw people staring up from the water, and then he and others started helping them out of the bay. “It was shock,” said Torres. “People were yelling. Nobody knew. People came out all wet. They were crying. For a while, nobody knows what was going on.”


;"6!A 8!#A@"7 1>54"! $ -?779#!:

necticut town where 20 children and six educators were massacred in December held a moment of silence Friday, at a six-month remembrance event that doubled as a call to action on gun control, with the reading of names of thousands of victims of gun violence. The mood of the sixmonth marker of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown was decidedly more political than private. It was organized by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a group co-founded by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Events were being held in 10 states calling for lawmakers to expand background checks for gun buyers.

Reading names

Two sisters of Victoria Soto, a teacher slain at Sandy Hook on Dec. 14, asked the crowd gathered at a town hall in Newtown for a 26-second moment of silence. The event then transitioned to the reading of the names of more than 5,000 people killed in America by gun violence since the tragedy in Newtown. The reading of names is expected to take 12 hours. The gunman in Newtown killed his mother and then the 26 people at the school with a semiautomatic rifle before committing suicide as police arrived.

Some of the victims’ families are in Washington this week. Jillian and Carlee Soto met with President Barack Obama as they campaign for gun control. “He just told us to have faith,” said Jillian Soto, 24. “It isn’t something that happens overnight. It’s something that you have to continue to fight for.” Mayors Against Illegal Guns also launched a bus tour that will travel to 25 states over 100 days to build support for legislation to expand background checks.

Political pressure

Bloomberg, one of the most powerful gun control proponents in the U.S., this week sent a letter asking donors not to support Democratic senators who opposed the bill to expand background checks. On the other side of the debate, the National Rifle Association is focusing on Sen. Joe Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat, who cosponsored the bill to expand background checks. The NRA, the most powerful pro-gun lobby in the country, plans to spend $100,000 airing a TV ad in West Virginia urging viewers to phone Manchin’s office and tell him “to honor his commitment to the 2nd Amendment” of the Constitution, which protects the right of citizens to own firearms.





Right balance of color, texture can refresh your home

BACKYARD BOUQUETS Annual cutting gardens hold bounty of beauty

By Mitzi Davis CSU Master Gardener

A cutting garden can be an enjoyable addition to your perennial borders and vegetable garden. Growing a garden dedicated to flowers for cutting and arranging can give you a wider variety of materials to work with and make cutting them a lot easier. A cutting garden means you can have flowers for bouquets without ruining the look of your landscape plantings. The cutting garden has the same requirements as a vegetable garden — full sun, good soil, access to water, and wind protection if possible. A fence can keep pets and other animals out of your garden, too. Have your soil tested to see if you need to add organic

matter and/or fertilizer. A drip irrigation system is ideal. It keeps the leaves and the flowers dry so there is less chance of disease like powdery mildew. A 60-squarefoot garden can supply enough flowers for the house and gifts during the summer growing season. Add some bulbs, a few perennials, grasses and “woodies” — cuttings from shrubs and trees and you’ll have bouquets almost year round. Annuals will be the backbone of the cutting garden. Some annuals can be sown directly in the garden while others should be started earlier inside or purchased as plants. Otherwise they’ll be just starting to bloom about the time we have our first frost. Growing from seed will give you a wider selection of va-

rieties and individual colors. When buying seeds or plants, look for varieties of flowers that will grow at least 18 to 24 inches tall for long stems. A good selection of flowers to start a cutting garden would include snapdragons (Rocket or Liberty), zinnias (Benary giants), cosmos (Versailles or the new Double Click), Gomphrena (Strawberry Fields, Fireworks), Rudbeckia/black-eyed Susan (Cherry Brandy, Indian Summer, Irish Eyes ), Ageratum (Blue Horizon), salvia (Victoria), garden sage (tri-color sage ), Celosia cristata (Chief ) or Celosia plumosa (Century Mix), larkspur and sunflowers. There are so many sunflowers now, it’s hard to choose, but look for the pollenless varieties. For the classic single-stem sunflower

consider Pro-cut, Sunrich and Sunbright series, but there are also doubles, bi-color and dark varieties. A branching variety such as Valentine will give you the longest season of bloom. The zinnias, cosmos, larkspur and sunflowers can be seeded directly into the garden. The others should be started indoors 4 to 6 weeks before planting out. Snapdragons and larkspur like cooler weather, so get them planted early. The flowers listed above See BOUQUET, Page C3

Have you ever walked into a friend’s home and felt instantly at ease? Maybe you couldn’t quite put your finger on it, but something about the space allowed the stress of the day to just roll off your shoulders. It’s been scientifically shown that a room’s colors and textures can dramatically affect our mood, feelings and emotions. All it takes is the wrong color paint, and getting home after a long day could make you feel worse rather than better. That’s why it’s helpful to keep a few basic rules in mind when redecorating. If your favorite room needs a face lift, these tips will help you incorporate vibrant colors with the right balance of textures to achieve the desired feel. Resist the rainbow. Reducing the number of colors in a design makes a space feel more consistent. Limit yourself to one main color, and two or three accents. Small spaces should use light colors because dark colors can make the space seem smaller. Large spaces benefit most from warm, rich colors that give a feeling of coziness. And don’t worry if you’re not quite ready to let go of your neutral-colored walls: It’s easier to update colorful accessories to refresh your space as the seasons change or as your tastes become better refined. Be particular about patterns. A pattern acts as a visual texture. Patterns are perfect for adding visual interest, even in a tiny space, just don’t go overboard. Two or three different patterns is more than enough for once space. When choosing patterns, think about both contrast and coherence. Perhaps a simple checkered pattern that matches the color in a large floral print. Remember that small-scale patterns are better for small spaces, while large-scale patterns work in large spaces because it draws the space in. Opposite textures attract. A lack of complementary textures is a common theme in many selfdecorated homes. This is unfortunate because varying the textures in a room can add interest and warmth. Explore the nature of different textures — plush, smooth, rough, woven — and look for opportunities to create depth by layering. You can choose striking textures in bold colors that will elevate your design, or keep the colors neutral but rev up the warmth of a room through the display of many interesting textures. Remember that heavy textures tend to “eat” space, so reserve them for large rooms or spots you want to feel particularly cozy. While they’re important guidelines, these rules of thumb don’t guarantee that the finished product will match what’s in your head. If you’re overwhelmed by all the choices, never hesitate to reach out to a local designer who can ensure that your favorite room always says, “Welcome, let’s relax!” Bryan Soth and Dwight Sailer own and operate HighCraft Builders, a Northern Colorado design-build remodeling firm celebrating 15 years of business in 2013.

viable methods for effectively protecting and conserving water and its purity. Often people lament turf due to the misperception that it is insatiable for water which would be better allocated. Yet turf grasses cared for organically are well suited for our semi-arid xeriscapic goals of water quality protection and conservation. Too often, we focus on drought hardiness or advanced irrigation components for conservation techniques when our oldest and most effective tool remains soil dynamics.

Only child needs to decide when to cut umbilical cord Dear Abby: I am 25, and my boyfriend and I have been together since high school. We have now decided to take our relationship to the next level by living together. When I brought up the idea to my mother a few months ago, she was against it. She said if I do this it will change my relationship with her. My boyfriend and I are college graduates, have good jobs and are self-supporting. If things work out between us, we will most likely be getting married next year. I am an only child, and I don’t want to hurt my mother or have our relationship change, but I want to be able to live my own life. I would like her support but don’t know how to tell her what we have decided or whether it would be worth breaking the special bond between my mother and me. — Only Child in California Dear Only Child: Stop beating around the bush and tell your mother what your plans are. At 25, you are old enough — and this relationship has gone on long enough — that moving in together is a natural progression toward a permanent commitment. Her resistance is based on fear of what your independence from her will mean — to her. However, if you truly can’t decide whether cutting the umbilical cord is worth it, then keep things as they are — and remain her little girl forever. Dear Abby: Your column often provides helpful tips to your readers. May I suggest that you remind those who are, or know someone who is, college-bound never to hesitate to apply for as many scholarships as possible — regardless of how small. My local conservation association has been giving scholarships for 11 years. Some years we get no applicants! The amounts are $500 and $1,000. This money could pay for books, cover lab fees or go toward tuition, but we get few applicants. Many fraternal organizations also give out numerous small scholarships. These all add up and can help to reduce the college debt burden. It’s never too soon to start. There are middle school and high school contests, too. Now is the time for students to start their college funds with all the prizes and scholarships they can accumulate. — Helping the Next Generation Dear Helping: I’m sure many families will thank you for this reminder. Readers, many small scholarships are available — and the thing to do is talk to your school counselor and research online or at your local library. Indeed, it’s never too soon to start looking.

History ‘G’

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Dear Carolyn: My brother-in-law of 20 years has all the symptoms of workaholism. Despite her pleas for him to be more available to her, he continues to spend 14-hour days at the office, seven days a week. He’s in denial, and my sister, his wife, seems to finally have had enough. She’s starting to pull away — losing her extra weight, dressing sexy, going out with friends for drinks, and flirting with guys at work. I love both of them very much and want them to be happy together. Is there anything a concerned older sister can do to get them to seek professional help? — Workaholism Dear Workaholism: No, because: (1) Unless you’re summoned, it’s not your place to get involved; (2) You have an agenda, apparently. You want them to be happy together. To be a good helper in any situation, I think you need to bring no other allegiance except to the best outcome for those directly involved. That said, if your agenda is out in the open, then you do get one chance to butt in: “I can see you pulling away, and for my own selfish reasons I hope you’ll get into marriage counseling before there’s no going back.” This goes down a lot better with a chaser: “It’s your life, and I just want you to be happy, so I’ll shut up now and stay out of it.” Dear Carolyn: My second-grade son was upset yesterday because his best friend at school told him to toughen up (my son was crying over something) and also told him he was not one of his best friends anymore. What do I say to my son? — Parent Dear Parent: Next time — because they’re both probably over this already — it’s hard to go wrong with a 1-2 plan of acknowledging his feelings — “I can see you’re really upset, I’m sorry,” plus hug — and directing him to come to his own way of dealing with it: “What do you think you can do about it?” It’s important to walk the line between validating his feelings and — please — not living and dying with his every social bruise. He also needs to develop his own problem-solving skills. Second-graders say horrible things to each other, they just do, but kids also teach each other social skills. And while it is going to hurt, it’s also not going to be a serious problem unless there’s systematic unkindness that the school fails to address.

bloom for a long time with multiple stems to cut throughout the summer into fall. These flowers offer a variety of shapes and colors and some of them can be used both fresh and dried. And watch them grow! Use mulch between rows to keep weeds down and keep the soil moist. Check regularly for insects and diseases, although most of these flowers are pretty disease-free. At the end of the growing season, you’ll probably find powdery mildew on the zinnias and rust on the snapdragons, but just dispose of plant tissues when you see these diseases. Start cutting your flowers when the buds are partially open, rather than in full bloom. Bring a clean bucket of cool water with flower preservative with you into the garden. Cut early in the day when it is still cool or wait until evening. Use a knife or sharp cutters and cut the stems at an angle. Strip any foliage that will be below the water line in the bucket. You should cut every few days, including flowers that are past their prime to keep the plants blooming. Place your bucket of flowers in a cool location for a couple of hours or overnight. After conditioning, you can arrange the flowers, recut the stems and place them in a clean vase with more water and flower preservative. Keep the arrangement out of direct sunlight, change the water every few days and your flowers should last up to two weeks.

Staking tomatoes requires strong work ethic Associated Press

A month from now, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Tomato seedlings that were planted neatly near garden stakes are already beginning to take matters into their own hands, and if allowed to grow willy nilly will turn into a tangled mass of vines with tomato fruits — many of them rotting — hidden in a dark jungle of stems. So, if you were planning to stake and prune your tomato plants, start asserting yourself now. Tomatoes do not have to be staked and pruned to be grown well, but if you planted them anything less than 3 or 4

feet apart and put stakes beside each one, that obviously was your intention.

What’s at stake?

Staking is admittedly the more troublesome way to grow tomatoes. But in return for your troubles, you reap earlier fruits, larger fruits, cleaner fruits and more fruits per square foot of garden space. (Only so-called indeterminate tomatoes — those whose stems are forever elongating, as indicated on the seed packet — can be staked.) To keep the plants neat through the season, the stake has to be sturdy, no smaller than an 11⁄2-inch-square piece

of wood, bamboo or metal pipe. To accommodate that ever-elongating growth, a stake also must be about 7 feet tall, enough for one end to be plunged solidly into the ground while the other extends as high as you can reach for pruning, tying and harvesting.

Ongoing pruning

OK, your stakes are in the ground. Your tomatoes are growing well and you’ve been pruning them by snapping off shoots, called suckers, that appear wherever a leaf meets the single stem. So what more do you need to worry about? Those tomato plants are going to need more attention

Hanging Baskets Gifts • Pottery • Arbors Annuals • Perennials Veggies • Herbs

Plants get away

Most frustrating is when you’re startled by a giant sucker, almost as robust as the single main stem, on a plant that otherwise has been so neatly trained. This common situation results, ironically, from paying too close

Baptisa (Baptista australis), also known as False Indigo, is a tough and beautiful cobalt blue large (4 x 4 foot ) perennial that thrives in our Colorado climate. Plant it in sun and with room to grow, as this plant makes strong roots and is hard to move later in life. Seeds pods in the fall are fun to collect and add winter interest. Having trouble with landscape weed control? At this time of the season, use a post emergent herbicide for control of weeds if other methods have failed. It is very important to read the label on the product. Glyphosphate, commercial name Roundup, will kill most broad-leaf weeds. Use in bright sun-

Q: Is it too late to plant a rose bush? I’ve been told they can only be planted in the early spring. Five to six weeks before the last killing frost is the best time for planting bareroot roses. However, potted roses can be planted during the growing season, provided the plant has time to become well established before the first frost. Before you purchase your rose, ensure you have chosen a good location, preferable with full sun and well-drained soil, and then prepare the planting hole. The depth of the hole should be the same as the height of the bud union from the bottom of the container. This will ensure the bud union is at or slightly below ground level. Use high pressure water or a sharp knife to break up the root ball if it has become pot bound. Gently fill in around the root ball with soil mixed with some aged compost or other organic material and water deeply. Wait until after the first peak of bloom before adding any fertilizers as the salts can slow root growth and water uptake. See CSU Extension Fact Sheet 7.404 for a list of rose varieties that do well in Colorado, found at www.ext. Q: My forsythia bush hasn’t bloomed in years. I prune it back every fall to encourage new growth, but it still won’t bloom. When pruning flowering shrubs, pay attention to the way in which the shrub forms its blooms. Springflowering shrubs such as forsythia form blooms on 1year-old wood, or the growth from the previous summer. By pruning these shrubs in the fall, you are removing the wood that would produce the blooms you are looking for in the spring. If you want to thin your forsythia, it can be done in early spring before growth starts, realizing you may be removing some blossoms, or right after bloom.

shine, preferably on a windless day. You need only to touch the leaf of the weed to kill the plant — remember these products are nonselective and will kill all green plant material it touches. Some glyphosate products are combined with extended releasing herbicides such as Imazapic and Imazapyr. Be very careful with these products because their effects can linger and damage surrounding plants and prevent new growth planted later. For safety and disposal of pesticides, refer to CSU PlantTalk #1426 and 1429 at Do not pour unused herbicides into public drainage areas. The French potager or vegetable garden, combines herbs, vegetables and flowers such as calendula, nasturtiums and marigolds. It is not too late to intermix flowers with your vegetables as the bright colors of the flowers will attract pollinators. Snug placement will discourage weeds and conserve moisture. You may not find gasplant (Dictamnus albus) in local nurseries. Found in established gardens and farmyards, it is a long-living perennial which blooms in June, has flowering spikes of white, pink and pale purple, and takes full sun to partial shade. Volatile oils from the plant give it a lemony smell. In hot weather with still air, these oils can catch fire, hence the name gas plant.

attention to the plants. While you were staring at small details such as little suckers trying to get toeholds, a large one that went unnoticed kept growing larger. It doesn’t take long for a large sucker to take on the proportions of the main stem. There are a few ways to handle such a delinquent shoot. The first is to lop it off at its origin. The second option is to let the shoot grow, tie it up, and now consider your staked plant as having two main stems instead of one. The third option is just to ignore the delinquent shoot, except to harvest its tomato fruits when the time comes.

Highly efficient ‘passive homes’ gain ground

By Melissa Rayworth Associated Press

By Joann Loviglio Associated Press


ades of near silence, a passive voice is making itself heard in American architecture. So-called passive houses, which have been around in Europe but never really caught on in the United States, are basically built around the idea of making houses airtight, super-insulated and energy efficient. The goal: a house that creates nearly as much energy as it consumes. Think of being able to keep your house warm without a traditional big furnace, cool with no air conditioning unit. “At this point there’s no reason why any developer can’t now build this way,” said Tim McDonald, whose firm has designed and built energy-efficient buildings with eco-friendly materials for more than a decade in Philadelphia, and recently entered the world of passive housing. Signature features often include thick outside walls and roofs, highly-insulated windows and frames, and a south-facing orientation. The ventilation system pulls in fresh outdoor air and pumps out stale indoor air, but not before it’s used to heat or cool the incoming air to the same temperature. Houses built this way can stay comfortable using 90 percent less energy than traditional construction homes, according to the Passive House Institute US, an Illinois-based certification, research and consulting group. Though the idea was born in the U.S., the roughly 20,000 internationally certified passive houses worldwide are in Europe — predominantly Germany, Austria and Scandinavia. Fewer than 100 exist in the U.S. — but that’s changing, from chilly New England to toasty Arizona to muggy Baton Rouge, said Katrin Klingenberg, Passive House Institute US cofounder and executive director. “People associate the passive house movement with Europe, but it comes out of the (American) oil embargo and energy crisis in the 1970s,” she said. “Then political change happened, (energy) prices came down … but in Europe that didn’t happen, so they had reason to continue the research.” Critics say passive houses work better in Europe because temperatures are relatively stable compared to many parts of the U.S. They also cite some pricey materials, and predict it will be tough convincing Americans to part with their thermostats and let their home regulate its own temperature.


A ‘Crooked Coop’ in Clinton, Wash. is reminiscent of a fairy tale house or Dr. Seuss. Designer chicken coops are becoming a new kind of yard art and many poultry raisers are being upfront about it — using the outbuildings as extensions of their homes. DEAN FOSDICK/AP

Innovative chicken coops can give a yard some chic By Dean Fosdick Associated Press

To make an original statement with yard art, think beyond fountains, globes and statuary. Add chicken coops to be chic. These outbuildings can amuse and enhance while providing shelter for the family fowl. “Raising chickens is a different hobby now than it was in the past,” said Matthew Wolpe, who with fellow designer Kevin McElroy wrote “Reinventing the Chicken Coop.” (Storey Publishing, 2012). Many of those who choose to raise backyard chickens today “are urban dwellers with no traditional (poultry) background — people bringing a fresh approach who want their chicken coops to be more like accessories to their houses,” he said. “They believe the coops should be at the front of the house rather than hidden.” Once you have the essentials down — the egg boxes, a screened run, a perch, ventilation and feeding stations — a chicken coop can be whatever you want it to be, Wolpe said in a phone interview from Oakland, Calif. “As long as it functions well for chickens and their owners, it can be anything,” he said. “We think people should go nuts.” Chicken coops look best when designed to fit a particular yard or setting. That also leaves room for innovative ways to collect eggs or more easily move manure into compost systems. “Anything from technical to aesthetic to wacky,” Wolpe said. Jenny Patty-Caldwell used a coffin-shaped door and cedar shakes reminiscent of fairy-tale houses or Dr. Seuss when creating her family’s small “Crooked Coop” in Clinton, Wash. The Gnome-like home was a popular stop on a recent self-guided Whidbey Island Coop Tour that featured a half-dozen eye-catching chicken houses and open-air enclosures or runs. Some incorporated folk art, others

used recycled materials (a homemade truck canopy, flooring from a former Seattle department store), and several featured skylights and systems for diverting and using rainwater. Still others have installed solar power in their coops, along with timers that turn lights on and off and open and close doors. Many coops have been built with wheels so they can be maneuvered around lawns. That’s an efficient way to fertilize, too. “People want interesting coops but still very utilitarian,” said Marci Ameluxen, a 4-H poultry club leader and one of Whidbey Island’s annual coop tour organizers. “In Portland (Ore.) on their coop tour, I’ve seen pictures of Victorian gingerbread coops and Manhattan skyline coops.”

Williams-Sonoma, the San Francisco-based retailer of kitchenware and home furnishings, launched an agrarian product line a year ago featuring designer chicken coops. “We’re selling them from Seattle to Boston to Florida,” said Allison O’Connor, the company’s vice president of merchandising. The marketing program was developed in part to satisfy customer demand for safe, wholesome foods, O’Connor said. “Having farm fresh eggs is a new experience for a great many people,” she said. “People are looking at chickens more as family pets — as extensions of their family. We’re up to nine coops (designs) now and will be introducing a couple more next month.”

The sun-drenched colors and inviting textures of summer provide plenty of decorating ideas. The trick is doing it right: A summer-inspired interior can become a tacky, tropical disaster if it’s done with too heavy a hand. But with a light touch and strategic choices, your home can be brightened all year long by the fleeting beauty of summer. Above all, “do not be literal with summer,” said Los Angeles-based designer Betsy Burnham. Avoid putting up a sign that said, “Gone Fishin’” or displaying a collection of seashells on a table, she said. Instead, try examining the colors inside a handful of shells, then decorating a room in those shades. Or upholster one piece of furniture in crisp, summery linen, rather than slip-covering an entire room that way. Designer Joe Lucas of Lucas Studio in West Hollywood, Calif., agreed: A life preserver with the words “To the Beach” painted on it may not be something you want to hang up, he said, even if you really live a block from the beach. But a mix of sand-colored paint and ocean blue fabrics can be a tasteful reminder of summers by the shore. “Summery interiors are best described as relaxed,” Flynn said. “While autumnal and wintry spaces are packed with rich velvets and earthy palettes, summery spaces are super-light, unstructured and pretty darn casual.” Flynn uses deliberate contrast to point up that ca-

sual feeling: “I like to juxtapose super-relaxed elements such as slipcovers or bedding made from washed linen with super-tailored elements such as tailored tartan or pinstripe accents. The result is preppy, but still casual.” One option is a palette of muted summer colors (sandy beiges, soft driftwood grays, nautical blues), which can be used throughout a room without overpowering it. Lucas is a fan of very pale gray wall colors that include just a hint of green or blue. They look great alongside natural, pale wood furniture. Flynn recommends “washed-out blue” wall colors, such as “Krypton” by Sherwin-Williams or “Drenched Rain” by DunnEdwards. “Blues with the perfect amount of gray in them tend to be timeless and also work as ‘new neutrals’ — colors with tons of personality which tend to work well with almost every other hue out there, as opposed to boring beiges and taupes.” These muted blues pair beautifully with white, he said: “The mix of blue and white together is totally timeless, plus it can be mixed up in many different ways to update the look. Almost all colors accent blue and white well.” The other summery option is to go vivid, using grassy greens, geranium reds, deep corals and the teal of tropical waters. Done right, these colors can elevate the look of a room. But tread carefully. To balance out these saturated colors, Burnham suggests bringing in plenty of crisp white.

it’s so thirsty. Both the salts and chemicals severely dehydrate soil, desiccate and suppress beneficial microbes, and pollute run-off and ground water. If you dined on salt and chemicals, your body, too, would require inordinate amounts of water to protect individual cells and detoxify the liver. Soluble NPK salts are very inefficient; only a small percentage is actually absorbed by roots with the majority oxidizing into the atmosphere or causing a litany of problems downstream or below ground.

grassy blue-green hue, improving drought tolerance and reducing weed and pest pressure. The most critical factor in turf and soil health is to abstain from applying high concentration (NPK) chemical salt fertilizers or petroleum distillate weed controls. Irony glares in that we apply massive amounts of salt and chemicals to an ecology, then remain perplexed as to why

the weed controls are highly toxic chemical compounds of a demonstrably carcinogenic nature. This is not the lawn we want to nakedly traipse. Following an application of high-quality organic fertilizer in early spring, I refrain from fertilization throughout the heat of summer. Lawns are best fertilized with their own grass clippings, a process simplified with modern mulching deck lawnmowers. This mulch and thatch layer remains an integral component of turf ecology, returning high value organic matter to the soil, shading soil while

preventing evaporation and weed seed germination, and feeding beneficial microbes. Organic matter, or OM, plays a crucial role in soil dynamics, acting as storage vessels where water and nutrient exchange takes place. Maintenance necessitates a mowing height of no less than 3 to 31⁄2 inches. This preserves efficient photosynthesis by the grass blade, while providing shade to soil beneath. I highly recommend abandoning mechanical aeration, as punching massive holes in turf introduces too much oxygen into soil where

Companies get tax incentives for new jobs By The Associated Press

Funerals • Cremation Pre-Planning • Receptions

650 W. Drake Rd. 482-3208 ABRAMS Arline Abrams, 89, of Fort Collins. Private gathering will be held at a later date.

DENVER — The Colorado Eco-

nomic Development Commission has approved more than $8 million in tax incentives for three companies, counting on them to create or locate nearly 1,000 jobs in the state over the next five years. Longmont-based DigitalGlobe received approval for more than $4 million under the state’s job-growth-incentive tax-credit program on Thursday in return for creat-

ing 505 jobs during the next five years, the most jobs that were promised. The company is a leading commercial provider of satellite imagery According to the Denver Post, the other incentives were given to the Internet developer Sympoz and medicaldevice maker Terumo Medical Corp. DigitalGlobe employs 830 workers in Colorado and 1,300 total with other staff at sites in Virginia, Florida, Missouri, California and

abroad. Those new jobs would pay an average annual wage of $96,000 a year. DigitalGlobe has considered an expansion at its current headquarters in Longmont or a move to Thornton, Broomfield, Westminster or Virginia. “We would like for it to be Colorado,” said Tim Haskell, executive vice president of operations. John Cody, president and CEO of the Longmont Area

Economic Council, said the company’s current headquarters can be expanded, but not enough to accommodate the expected growth. “They looked at 150 sites all over north metro Denver, and they considered several sites in Longmont,” Cody said. He expects DigitalGlobe will build a new facility in either Broomfield or Westminster to better balance the commute for executives living in the south metro area

and technical staff on the north end. The commission approved $2.6 million in job-growth credits to a Denver Internet startup called Sympoz in return for creating 236 jobs over five years. Medical-device maker Terumo Medical Corp. received approval for $1.25 million from the state’s strategic fund in return for bringing 250 jobs paying an average wage of $69,056 a year to its facility in Lakewood.

Gary Herbert’s office said in a statement that Colorado withdrew its request for the emergency assistance after reassessing its situation. “Though Utah’s assistance is not currently required by Colorado, today’s efforts demonstrate Utah is ready, willing and able to help our neighbors in need,” Herbert said. Herbert had announced at a Friday morning news conference that Utah would send the help to Colorado, where two people have died and 419 homes have been destroyed in a wildfire near Colorado Springs. Authorities in Colorado said later Friday that a surprise rain shower helped them with the wildfire, which was 30 percent contained.

DENVER — Denver police are hoping two billboards telling the public about a March hit-and-run that killed two young brothers will help them get tips to solve the case. It’s the first time that Metro Denver Crime Stoppers is using billboards to ask the public for help with an unsolved case. The Denver Post reported Friday that donations from anonymous donors paid for the billboards, which cost about $10,000. The billboards show the picture of 8-year-old Zamay Khan and 6-year-old Azat Khan and their mother with the statement, “Someone knows who killed our sons.” The boys were crossing a street when they were struck by a car. Crime Stoppers Vice President Larry Stevenson says the ads will also appear in 20 bus benches.

High winds divert flights headed to DIA

DENVER — High winds diverted 23 flights scheduled to land at Denver International Airport on Thursday. Airport officials say winds up to 48 mph Thursday night diverted the flights to other airports, but the planes were returning to Denver once they refueled. The airport averages about 1,700 flights per day. The Denver Post reported that on Wednesday evening, as smoke from wildfires around the state reduced visibility, the airport closed two of four runways and briefly trimmed the number of arrivals and departures it was handling.

Girls on the Arsenal U13 team do a drill at the Fort Collins Soccer Complex on Wednesday. Arsenal U13, U16, U17 and U18 teams are going to Hawaii for a tournament this week. V. RICHARD HARO/THE COLORADOAN


Four Arsenal Gold teams from Fort Collins are making the trek to Honolulu for a regional tournament featuring 926 teams from 11 other states.

By Tyler Silvy

At the Fort Collins Soccer Club complex just north of Fort Collins, four age groups of Arsenal Gold girls soccer teams gathered for a team photo. With coaches flanking some 60 girls, the group didn’t quite fit within the confines of a single soccer goal as a backdrop. It wasn’t for lack of trying. The girls — part of U13, U16, U17 and U18 Arsenal Gold teams bound for the Far West Region 4 soccer tournament in Hawaii — huddled so close you could have

The Fort Collins-area teams make up four of the 926 teams from U12-U19 age groups. Apart from Colorado, those teams are from Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, New Mexico, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

Despite many of these girls playing against each other come the spring sports season, there’s plenty of love to go around when it comes time for club soccer. After all, many have been playing together since they were 8. For players like Katy Couperus of Fort Collins High School and Haley Murphy of Fossil Ridge High School, both recent graduates headed off to play in college this fall, thisregional tournament is one last shot at glory and one last chance to play together. Couperus and Murphy are joined by eight other Fort Collinsarea high school standouts, including Koree Willer, Fossil Ridge; Taylor Nelson, Fossil Ridge; Heather Hall, Rocky Mountain; and Ashley Evans, Fort Collins.

As I stepped up to the tee box on the second hole of the Southridge Golf Course, the rest of my foursome eyed me warily. I was on the second hole because I missed our 2:40 p.m. Tuesday tee time. That was my first mistake.

“When’s the last time you played?” Poudre golf coach Phil Coatman asked. “I’m not sure,” I replied. “Maybe 13, 14 years ago.” Coatman and the two Poudre boys golfers who accompanied us on this round were in awe. “Well, if worse comes to worse, you can just play along with me,” Coatman said. Then I hit my first golf shot in more than a decade. Kerthunk! I topped the ball, which rolled a measly 25 yards to the left and out of bounds. “Yeah, you can just play alongside me,” Coatman said.

Colorado will be looking to find some consistent play after going 3-3 in its last six games. Last week, the Ice allowed 67 points in the loss to Nebraska. Shoring up the defense will be key in the home finale against the Wyoming Cavalry. The Cavalry are 1-12 and score 30 points per game, while allowing 53.5. Both numbers are the worst in the

“Definitely, the current 18s have (set the bar high),” coach Dave Shaffer said. “Their soccer IQ, their quality of play is very high.” That group was a Region 4 semifinalist last year, as a U17 squad. If a team makes it to the final, it automatically qualifies for the national tournament, Shaffer said. “That’s how close they were,” Shaffer said. Taking four teams presents all sorts of issues, most of which are positive. The biggest headache, though, was raising money. That is especially true for the U13 team, which was the latest to find out it was going to the regional, learning of the opportunity in the middle of May, Shaffer said. As for the overall costs, it’s a pretty penny. “We estimated expenses at about $2,500 per kid,” Shaffer said. “There’s 60 kids going, so…” Some fundraising has been

done, but a lot of the dough will come courtesy players’ parents, many of whom are ponying up extra cash to join the teams in Hawaii. “Two-thirds of the 17s and 18s’ parents are coming,” Shaffer said. “A lot of them are planning to stay for an extra week.” Despite the costs, Shaffer said there is plenty of benefit for the teams going to the tournament. “The 18s went last year and

had a great experience,” Shaffer said. “They benefited a lot from that. Obviously, most of them are going off to college. So, from that perspective, they train all summer and get to go to college somewhat fit and somewhat in game shape. The benefit we’ll see from the 16s, 17s and 13s is just the overall experience, the quality of competition.” The U18 squad is the only one with regional experience,

entry form available at Altitude Running, 150 E. Harmony Road, Fort Collins and Runners Roost, 2720 Council Tree Ave. Pre-registration closes at 5 p.m. Saturday. Jill Mueggenberg, community relations coordinator for the city of Fort Collins Recreation Department, said she is hoping for a rebound in entrants closer to the record 727 runners and walkers who participated in the race in 2011. Last year when the race was

postponed to Sept. 30 due to air-quality concerns from the fire, and participation dipped. Kelly Christensen was the top male finisher in last year’s race, winning the 5K in 15 minutes, 11 seconds.

panions, giving me pointers throughout the round as they explained what goes into summer for them. For Coatman, summer is spent on the maintenance crew at Southridge . Although he said he’s had no issues with groundhogs, Coatman has seen plenty of wild play and practical jokes played on his course. I’m sure he cringed with every one of my backhoestyle shots in which I dug up a good chunk of the course. Rozga and Knutson said they play two or three rounds per week, along with plenty of time at the driving range as they prepare for fall’s earliest

sports season. Boys golfers get started Aug. 9 with a league match at Southridge. I would need to put their practice routine on steroids to be ready in time for that. The good thing about how badly I played — I shot somewhere in the 60s — is I learned so much about the game of golf. That knowledge was mostly in the form of golf jargon — mostly negative jargon. For every slice, there was a hook; for every fat shot, there was a worm-burner. And, sadly, for every bogey, there was a double- or triple-bogey. We walked the course, so I didn’t get the break from my profuse sweating when play-

but Shaffer said that team has the toughest draw, along with having to fill spots as some girls have pulled out of the tournament. The U13 squad, Shaffer said, might just stand the best chance at the regional. “Our 13s are arguably the best team in the state at their age,” Shaffer said. “They stand a pretty good chance of advancing out of pool play if they can handle the pressure.” Shaffer, too, is looking forward to the last ride with the U18 group. It’s a group that has made its mark on the Fort Collins Soccer Club. “It does rub off,” said Shaffer, talking about the influence the 18s’ success has had on younger groups. As close as the girls had to get for the group picture, it’s not surprising the girls rub off on one another. Tyler Silvy covers high school sports for The Coloradoan.

INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA hearings to determine if the University of Miami committed major infractions involving former booster Nevin Shapiro ended Friday after 16 1⁄2 hours over two days. The Committee on Infractions typically releases its report six to eight weeks after a hearing, though there is a chance that the Hurricanes may have to wait longer before hearing their fate.

Rockies lose Tulowitzki, fall to Phillies PHILLIES 8, ROCKIES 7

By The Associated Press

DENVER — The Colorado Rockies placed Troy Tulowitzki on the disabled list on Friday, and the star shortstop could miss up to six weeks because of a broken rib. Team spokesman Nick Piburn said an MRI taken Thursday night revealed a right rib fracture. Tulowitzki was injured earlier in the day while diving for a ball in the

eighth inning of a 5-4 loss to the Washington Nationals. “I’m not going to sugarcoat it. It’s a big loss for us,” Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Friday before Colorado lost to the Philadelphia Phillies, 8-7. “It’s also an opportunity for our team to step up and do

what I think we’ve done well all season and that’s respond to adversity,” Weiss said. “We’re not going to make up that type of production regardless of who plays but there’s no doubt in my mind we can still win games and be a factor in this race throughout the season.” Tulowitzki told the Denver Post in a text that he was in a lot of pain and was upset after working so hard to come back from an injury-plagued 2012 season.

He underwent season-ending groin surgery last June, and the Rockies stumbled through a franchise-worst 98loss campaign. Colorado has been much more competitive this year, and a big reason is Tulowitzki, who ranks second in the NL with a .347 batting average, third in homers (16) and fourth in RBIs (51). “It’s tough on him,” Weiss said.

HOME team in caps

Baltimore’s Chris Tillman took a two-hitter into the seventh inning, and Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 22nd home run. Cleveland’s Drew Stubbs slid home safely on a ball hit by Jason Kipnis in the bottom of the ninth inning. Pittsburgh’s Jeff Locke allowed just two hits over seven innings. He struck out five and walked one to win his sixth straight decision while shaving his ERA to 2.19. Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run double in the third inning off Stephen Fife. Kansas City’s Luis Mendoza pitched six innings to win for the first time in six starts. The Royals held a 13th straight opponent to three runs or fewer. Chicago’s David DeJesus hit a bases-loaded triple before injuring his shoulder when he crashed into the outfield wall. Nate Schierholtz homered and Anthony Rizzo had three hits. Miami rookie Jose Fernandez outpitched a rusty Jake Westbrook, and the team with the worst record in the majors beat the team with the best record. Fernandez had a careerhigh 10 strikeouts in seven innings. Cincinnati’s Jay Bruce homered off Burke Badenhop with one out in the 10th inning. San Francisco’s Madison Bumgarner allowed two hits in seven innings and combined with Sandy Rosario for a three-hit shutout. Toronto’s Mark Buehrle threw seven shutout innings, Colby Rasmus and J.P. Arencibia homered, and the Blue Jays handed Texas its fourth straight loss. Buehrle gave up four singles and equaled his season high with seven strikeouts. Houston’s Erik Bedard pitched six solid innings, and Jose Altuve hit a go-ahead RBI single. Detroit’s Prince Fielder broke open a scoreless game with a two-run double in the sixth inning. Victor Martinez and Jhonny Peralta followed Fielder’s soaring drive with RBI doubles of their own. Philadelphia note: The Phillies optioned rookie right-hander Tyler Cloyd to Triple-A Lehigh Valley to make room in the rotation for John Lannan. New York note: Derek Jeter resumed hitting and fielding drills Friday for the first time since mid-April, a day after receiving medically clearance to increase his rehabilitation program for a broken left ankle. Oakland note: On Thursday, the Athletics became the first American League team to play two 18-inning games in one season since Oakland and the Washington Senators did so in 1971. Arizona note: The Diamondbacks have claimed right-hander Nate Adcock off waivers from Kansas City and sold righthander Warner Madrigal to Japan’s Chunichi Dragons.

CHICAGO — Milan Lucic re-

members it as if it was yesterday. Boston got Nathan Horton in a trade with Florida three years ago, and Bruins coach Claude Julien decided to put the forward on a line with David Krejci and Lucic. “It kind of just clicked right away,” Lucic said. Yeah, no kidding. The high-scoring line combined for Boston’s first two goals in a 4-3 triple-overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals Wednesday night. It was the continuation of a terrific postseason for the three veterans, who also helped the Bruins win the title two years ago. Horton, who was sidelined for the last part of the 2011 postseason by a concussion,

left the series opener against Chicago with an unspecified upper body injury, but he practiced Friday and appears to be on track to play in Game 2 on Saturday night. “We’ll have to make a decision on him tomorrow,” Julien said. “It was encouraging to see him out there today. If

he feels good tomorrow, he’s in the lineup, simple as that.” If Horton is unable to play, Tyler Seguin likely would move up to the top line. He filled in for Horton after he left Game 1, and had a handful of prime chances to lift Boston to the victory. Whether it’s Horton or Se-

guin playing with Krejci and Lucic, the Blackhawks know they have to do a better job of defending that line. “I think that’s a line that has most of the offensive abilities that the good line should have,” Chicago defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson said. “They got a big body with Lucic and Horton is a pretty big guy, too, and Krejci’s a good playmaker and good shot, too. So they’re obviously one of the best lines in the league, if not the best. “It’s going to be a fun challenge to play against them again tomorrow and see how it goes.” Hjalmarsson was wrestling with Horton in front of the Chicago net during a Boston power play in the first overtime when the wing skated off with the injury. But Horton managed to practice on the eve of Game 2 and didn’t appear to be inhibited.

Edwards tops NASCAR qualifying at Michigan By Noah Trister Associated Press

BROOKLYN, Michigan — Carl

Edwards topped qualifying Friday for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway, with drivers enthusing about the speed of the track. Edwards time of 202.452 mph came a year after Marcos Ambrose won the pole at MIS with a speed of 203.241 mph, and that was the first time since 1987 the 200 mph mark was broken during qualifying for NASCAR’s top series. “The new track is super fun to race on,” Edwards said. “The pavement seems like it has aged more in a year than a lot of new track surfaces have, and hopefully we can keep developing a Goodyear tire and keep mak-

ing it softer and softer to where it becomes the old Michigan here in a year or two. That is going to be awesome.” Edwards topped qualifying for the first time this season. He had the pole in May at Talladega as well, but that was because qualifying was rained out and the field was set by practice speeds. He’s second in the Sprint Cup standings. Kurt Busch was second in qualifying, followed by Kasey Kahne. Points leader Jimmie Johnson was 17th. Edwards started second last weekend at Pocono, but finished 18th. Now, his No. 99 Ford looks capable of a big weekend. “The engine is a big part of it, and today the engine group came through huge,” Edwards said.






Mickelson, Horschel tied at U.S. Open In tied NBA Finals, By Doug Ferguson Associated Press

ARDMORE, Pa. — Phil Mickel-

son made his first birdie on his last putt. Billy Horschel never missed a green. It was all they could do to barely break par against Merion, which is turning out to be the real star of this U.S. Open. Nearly half the field did not finish the second round when it was suspended by darkness. Moments after the horn sounded to stop play, Mickelson opted to finish his round and drilled a 20-foot birdie putt for a 2-over 72. That gave him a share of the clubhouse lead with Horschel, who made it as easy as possible by hitting every green in regulation for a 67. They were at 1-under 139. Even with the round not finished, it was becoming clear that this U.S. Open might be up for grabs until the very end. Tiger Woods, who grimaced with every shot out of the rough because of pain in his left elbow, was at 3-over 143 and still very much in the game. “I don’t know how anyone is going to separate too far from the field,” Mickelson said. “There might be a hot round tomorrow, and they might get a hot round on Sunday, but unlikely to be the same player.” No one was hotter than Horschel, playing in his first U.S. Open since he was a 19year-old in college. Nothing is tougher than Merion, the little course in the tony suburbs of Philadelphia that even in rain-softened conditions is showing plenty of might. And

to think there was chatter at the start of the week about the potential for the first 62 in major championship history. “Perhaps next time you guys will believe when we say it’s really not that easy, that it’s really not that easy,” Geoff Ogilvy said after a 70. That put him at 4-over 144, which gave him and dozens of others a legitimate shot going into the weekend. Luke Donald (72), Justin Rose (69) and Steve Stricker (69) were at even-par 140. The surprise were a pair of amateurs — Michael Kim of Cal and Cheng-Tsung Pan of Taiwan. They were 2 under for their round and among those who didn’t finish. The long day, brought on by storm delays on Thursday, began with cool conditions and patches of light rain that eventually gave way to sunshine. That led players to wonder how much tougher Merion will be once it starts to dry out. “It’s not as easy as people think,” defending champion

Webb Simpson said after a 75 put him six shots behind the clubhouse lead. “I heard15,16 under floating around. And it’s going to be a normal U.S. Open winning score, I think.” Horschel hit all 18 greens in regulation, a stellar achievement at a regular tour event, let alone the U.S. Open. It sent USGA officials searching for hours to find the last time anyone failed to miss a green in the toughest test in golf. Records of that detail only go back as far as 1989. That last documentation of someone doing that was Johnny Miller when he closed with a 63 at Oakmont to win in 1973. David Graham used his putter on every hole when he shot 67 to win the 1981 U.S. Open at Merion. “I didn’t know I hit every green until I walked off 18,” Horschel said. “It’s a cool thing. But like I said, it’s not the first time I’ve hit all 18 greens. I’ve done it plenty of times in my career. Obviously, it’s at a U.S. Open, but I

think the softness of the greens helped that.” Pan played nine holes and was even par, along with Ian Poulter, who was plodding along in plaid at 1 under for his round through 14 holes. John Senden of Australia had a 71 and Nicolas Colsaerts of Belgium shot 72 to finish at 1over 141. Mickelson, equipped with a full night of rest after his cross-country trip Wednesday from his daughter’s eighth-grade graduation in San Diego, began with a three-putt bogey and appeared ready to pull away with a shot that nearly spun back into the hole at No. 8. He missed the birdie putt from 4 feet. Then he hit a beautiful tee shot over the water to a dangerous front pin on the par-3 ninth to about 7 feet. He missed that one, too. Lefty three-putted from 20 feet on No. 12, and then flew a wedge over the green into a plugged lie for bogey on the par-3 13th. He kept battling until ending on a sweet note. With that birdie putt on his final hole, Mickelson was under par through 36 holes for the seventh time in the U.S. Open. The previous six times, he was a threat to win on Sunday. Mickelson has five silver medals as a runner-up, and all he wants is another chance. “I just like being in the mix,” he said. “I think it’s fun having a chance heading into the weekend. The way I have control off the tee and as good as the putter is — even though it didn’t show today — I’m very excited about the opportunity this weekend.”

Wade says Game 5 could be the best

By Brian Mahoney Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO — At their best in the NBA Finals, the Miami Heat have forced turnover after turnover, finding a gear the San Antonio Spurs just can’t reach. Play in Game 5 as they have during their two easy victories in the series, and LeBron James’ defending champs will head home one win away from another title. But Miami’s best hasn’t been carrying over from game to game, not just in this series but for a while now. So it’s anybody’s guess what happens Sunday in a finals that’s dead even, though the games haven’t been. “I think Game 5 should be the best game of the series,” Dwyane Wade said. “Both teams should come out knowing each other, knowing what each other want to do, and it should be a very good game.” Not the way this series has been going. Game 1 was a thriller, neither team able to build a big lead over four back-and-fourth quarters before Tony Parker’s clinching basket helped the Spurs pull out a 92-88 victory. The teams haven’t delivered a classic since. The Heat won by 19, lost by 36 and cruised by 16. The last few minutes of each have looked more like an October exhibition than a mid-June championship clash.

“You lose a game like we did in Game 2 and we come back and beat them in Game 3 and look like they looked last night, that’s what drives me crazy, because as coaches you try to prevent that,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Friday during a conference call. Neither team practiced. “You like to be on a little bit more of an even keel and perform the same way each night, and the only thing I can tell myself after all these years is, you’re dealing with people with emotions and not robots,” Popovich said. “They come out and they all play hard, but there’s that little intangible, that little spark of intensity or back against the wall, or a little bit of fear that just seems to kick in when you’ve lost the previous game. And when you find teams that can get over that, those are the championship teams.” It’s the most uneven stretch of the NBA Finals since 2005, according to STATS, when San Antonio and the Detroit Pistons swapped four games decided by 15 or more points. Back then, the Spurs could depend on Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili to get them righted. But now Parker has a shaky hamstring, Ginobili’s shot and confidence are even shakier, and San Antonio might need a throwback performance from Duncan.
