Mayor could cast deciding vote

Developer: Mall in ‘tenuous’ position

The mayor has abstained from mall votes so far, but could cast the deciding vote on May 6. KevinDuggan@coloradoan.com

After staying out of the Foothills Mall fray for more than a year, Mayor Karen Weitkunat might join the debate about proposed changes to the redevelopment agreement for the ailing shopping center. Weitkunat said she might participate in the next City Council discussion on a request from Alberta Development Partners to amend the agreement and timeline for releasing $53 million in public funds to

support construction of the longawaited project. “It’s a possibility,” Weitkunat said. “I don’t know the ramifications of getting involved at this point. I need to talk to some people and get more information.” Weitkunat’s vote would break a possible 3-3 council tie whether to approve the proposed amendments. Council members on Tuesday voted to table the proposal and take it up again May 6. See MAYOR, Page A6

WELLINGTON — The driver of a

Toyota that slammed into the back of a Poudre School District bus Friday morning remained hospitalized but in stable condition after a crash that injured three Wellington students and the bus’ driver. The students injured were among nine riding to Eyestone Elementary and Wellington Middle school when the 24year-old female driver of the Toyota Solara crashed into the stopped bus shortly before 7 a.m., northwest of Wellington. The unidentified woman was

airlifted to Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland, where Colorado State Patrol Trooper Josh Lewis said she remained in stable condition Friday afternoon. The students and bus driver were treated and transported via ambulance to Poudre Valley Hospital; they were later released, Poudre School District announced Friday afternoon. When it was hit, the bus was parked and waiting for 13-yearold Brianna Meyer on Larimer County Road 82 at Bandana Lane. “It sounded like a shotgun,” See BUS, Page A8

Developers of Foothills Mall hope that with more dialogue, more answers and more study, Fort Collins City Council will amend the city’s $53 million finance agreement that would clear the way for the $300 million project. Council members on Tuesday tabled a vote that would have reduced the amount of space developers are required to lease to receive the first installment of $53 million in public financing from the sale of bonds by Don Provost a metropolitan district. Don Provost, principal of mall owner Alberta Development Partners, said Friday he was “disappointed we didn’t have a different result on Tuesday,” but he is focused on the May 6 council vote that could keep the project on track to open for the 2015 holidays. “Certainly the overall project is in a tenuous position right now, subject to getting something resolved here,” he said. If Alberta receives the first round of public funding in three weeks, the project will remain on schedule. If it takes much longer, Provost was unsure of the ramifications. “We had every intention of walking out of Tuesday and moving ahead and executing” the sale of bonds, he said. “We are evaluating schedules at every possible level to understand ... what the potential schedule impacts are. We don’t have much time to sort that out, but we’re in the process of doing that.” As of last week, Alberta had leased 90,000 square feet, about 17 percent of the project, and expects to have about 195,000 square feet leased by May. A couple more retailers have signed this week, Provost said. Mall developers have declined to say which tenants have signed with the mall, citing the complexities of leasing agreements and competition. “We are at a fairly urgent

Bill expanding hemp industry gets initial OK By Kristen Wyatt Associated Press

DENVER — Colorado is just start-

ing its experiment with industrial hemp production, but interest in the new crop is so strong that the state is moving to expand the number and size of farms growing marijuana’s nonintoxicating cousin. A bill that won unanimous approval in a Senate committee this week would allow year-round hemp cultivation in greenhouses and strike a 10-acre limit on hemp for research and development. “Hemp, I believe, is going to be the most valuable crop for Colorado farmers in the future,” said Michael Bowman, a farmer from Wray who plans to grow hemp on his eastern Colorado farm this spring. Lawmakers shared Bowman’s hyperbolic enthusiasm. “Hemp can fix every problem in the world if we just let it, so let’s get to work finding out the hundreds of thousands of uses for hemp,” said Sen. David Balmer, RCentennial. In 2011, the U.S. imported $11.5 million worth of hemp products, largely from China and Canada, compared to $1.4 million in imports in 2000. Most of that was hemp seed and hemp oil, used in granola bars, soaps, lotions and cooking oil. Colorado authorized hemp cultivation in 2012 when it legalized marijuana for recreational use. Farmers must apply for permits with the state Department of Agriculture, which are being issued for the first time this year, though a few growers didn’t wait and brought in sparse and scraggly experimental crops last year. Twelve other states have removed barriers to hemp production — California, Kentucky, Indiana, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia, according to the Vote Hemp advocacy group. The Colorado bill’s passage appears likely, but there are obstacles to making hemp more than an experimental crop. While a national Farm Bill signed into law in February lifts a decades-old ban on hemp cultivation, federal law still bans importing hemp seeds considered necessary for a viable industry.

TRINIDAD Llama that roamed campus found dead Police say a llama that was roaming around the southern Colorado town of Trinidad was found dead, and four people are being questioned. A veterinarian was examining the llama to determine how it died. The llama was spotted in Trinidad on Wednesday and wandered onto the campus of Trinidad State Junior College. College officials said the animal wasn’t aggressive but wouldn’t let anyone get near. Police followed the animal to the edge of town that day, and it appeared to head toward the foothills to the west.

MONTROSE 2 men charged in motorcycle death

A volunteer helps harvest hemp in October 2013, during the first known harvest of the plant in more than 60 years, in Springfield. A Senate committee this week gave unanimous approval to a bill that would allow year-round hemp cultivation in greenhouses and strike a 10-acre limit on hemp for research and development. ASSOCIATED PRESS

In February, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper wrote to U.S. Agriculture Secretary John Vilsack seeking permission to import seed from other countries. He hasn’t heard back. “Our fear is that this seed shortage will unreasonably suppress the number of registered growers, stifling the wishes of Colorado voters to begin hemp production,” Hickenlooper wrote. State officials say that the USDA referred questions about hemp seed to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, which hasn’t indicated any change looming. “What we’ve been told is that DEA trumps all,” Ron Carleton, deputy agriculture commissioner and overseer of the industrial hemp program, told senators this week. Colorado’s Agriculture Department has received 43 applications to grow hemp. Applications are being accepted through May. Farmers accepted into the program must test plants to make sure they are low in THC, the chemical that gives marijuana psychotropic effects. Colorado currently requires hemp to be grown outside. State officials want greenhouse growing, too.

ONLINE Senate Bill 184: http://bit.ly/1eSimbs

“We can essentially grow it year-round when you do it indoors,” Carleton said. Once the hemp is harvested, the next step in the process is a little unclear, state officials say. Finished hemp can be legally exported out of state, but what that means is unclear. For example, can farmers send hemp seed to another state to be turned into oil, or must the oil be produced in Colorado before it can be used in another state’s soap factory? Sen. Bernie Herpin, R-Colorado Springs, wondered about harvested hemp parts. “Would we be in trouble if we tried to ship those out of state?” he asked. Still, farmers and state officials told lawmakers that Colorado should barrel ahead. “If we waited for Congress or DEA to do any of this, we’d all grow old, and the next generation would be sitting here having this conversation again,” Bowman said. The bill awaits a vote by the full Senate before heading to the House.

Two men face charges in the death of a motorcyclist who ran into a rope and chain the men had allegedly stretched across a southwestern Colorado highway to retrieve an elk carcass, officials said Friday. Trever Rawson, 34, of Fountain died Oct.12 when he struck the chest-high line across Colorado 92 in Montrose County, the Colorado State Patrol said in a news release. An indictment was returned April 10. The reason for the delay in bringing charges was not clear, and authorities declined to discuss the case Friday. The charges allege Mark Valdez, 47, of Delta and Kevin Keener, 43, of Anton had attached the line to a pickup on one side of the road and to the elk on the other and were dragging the elk toward the road when Rawson was killed.

“Maybe they should consider changing the rule that says you can’t be within 500 feet of a recreation establishment. That rule doesn’t make much sense, I don’t see what it will prevent or accomplish. Use your gray matter to realize that sometimes it’s not black or white. Exceptions are OK.”

“Lunacy. They aren’t next to a school; they are in an industrial area. Furthermore, while denying this waiver will not shut down the business officially, but by not allowing them to compete for this new market is the kiss of death, just indirectly. This business has been open for three years and has zero complaints. Denying

this waiver means the consumer demand will be filled by another entrepreneur. ... One that may not be as ethical. No common sense here, I know being pro-pot is unpopular, but from a business management standpoint, this is lunacy.”

Larimer County Sheriff’s Office is searching the Wellington area for a gun officials believe a suspect dropped while fleeing from deputies early Friday morning. Jimmy Lee Jones, 29, was arrested at 5:13 a.m. Friday on charges of felony possession of a weapon by a previous offender and misdemeanor prohibited use of a weapJimmy Jones on, the sheriff’s office said. Jones may face additional charges related to the 3 a.m. report of a loud verbal disturbance on the 8000 block of Nashua Circle in Wellington. Upon arriving at the home, sheriff’s deputies say they heard a heated argument and saw a man holding a gun through an open garage door. The suspect fled the scene, and deputies say family members told them he was intoxicated and a previously convicted felon. A search involving a K9 unit and reverse 911 notifications sent to Wellington residents ended when Jones was found in a vacant home on Wilson Avenue in Wellington. Deputies said Jones was uncooperative after he was taken into custody. Deputies continue to search for the weapon in areas where Jones was seen. A description of the weapon was not provided Friday morning, but deputies ask that anyone who finds a gun in the Wellington area not touch the weapon and immediately call the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office dispatch center at (970) 416-1985. Jones was booked into the Larimer County Jail on Friday morning.

GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY

Governor supports cap on records fees By Nick Coltrain NickColtrain@coloradoan.com

Gov. John Hickenlooper said he supports, in general terms, capping how much Colorado governments can charge to fulfill requests for public records. A bill capping retrieval fees at $30 an hour passed the Legislature recently and awaits Hickenlooper’s signature. The bill was sponsored in the Senate by state Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins. Hickenlooper, speaking after a meeting with the Coloradoan editorial board Thursday, said he hadn’t seen the specifics of the bill and thus couldn’t say for sure

if he would sign it. He called himself a “big believer in transparency.” “As long as it’s something reasonable, so they can’t charge more than 20 bucks an hour, I’m fine with it,” Hickenlooper said. When Gov. John told the cap Hickenlooper was set to $30 an hour, he reaffirmed his support for a fee “that’s reasonable.” The fee helps to cover staff costs of record retrieval and review for potential redaction.

Fort Collins climbing guide safe from Mount Everest avalanche By Stephen Meyers StephenMeyers@coloradoan.com

Late Thursday night, Fort Collins resident Kevin Reilly received a text message via satellite phone from his son, Luke, in the Himalayas. “I’m OK,” the text read. Fort Collins native, Luke Reilly, 28, is at Mount Everest as a climbing guide for Ashford, Wash.-based International Mountain Guides. Friday morning high on the mountain, an avalanche struck that has left 12 dead and four missing in the worstever recorded disaster on Mount Everest. “You kind of get a cold chill and a sick feeling,” Kev-

in Reilly said Friday after news of the avalanche hit late Thursday in the U.S. He scoured websites and blogs for the most up-do-date information before and after receiving his son’s text. He read early Friday that the International Mountain Guides group was safe, with the exception of one Sherpa, who suffered injuries. The wall of snow and ice hit just below Camp 2, which sits at an elevation of 21,000 feet on the 29,036-foot mountain, Ang Tshering of the Nepal Mountaineering Association told the Associated Press. Kevin Reilly said Luke and his 120-person team of guides, Sherpas and clients are at Base Camp, below the avalanche slide, at an elevation of 17,000 feet. According to International Mountain Guide’s blog following the Everest expedition, Kami Sherpa was hit hard on the leg by a chunk of ice, and was flown to Kathmandu by helicopter for examination. The plan is for the expedition to continue in several days, the International Mountain Guide’s website said. “Each climber will need to assess their personal tolerance for risk and make a decision,” reads the website. “Mt. Everest is the same today as it was yesterday, and as it will

Luke Reilly, 28, is a 2003 Poudre High School graduate. He is at Mount Everest leading an expedition as a guide for International Mountain Guides. COURTESY OF INTERNATIONAL MOUNTAIN GUIDES

be tomorrow.” Knowing Luke, Kevin Reilly said, “He’ll press on.” Luke Reilly is a 2003 Poudre High School graduate now residing in Ashford, Wash. He attended Fort Lews College in Durango and joined the International Mountain Guides team in 2011. He has climbed Mount Aconcagua and Mount Denali and this is his first Mount Everest expedition. The peak Everest season is just days away, and Luke and his team are at Base Camp, to acclimatize to the high elevation. Kevin Reilly expects his son to return to

the U.S. in early June. Before Friday’s avalanche, the worst recorded disaster on Everest had been a snowstorm on May 11, 1996, that killed eight climbers. That disaster was later documented in Jon Krakauer’s book, “Into Thin Air.” Six Nepalese guides were killed in an avalanche in 1970. More than 4,000 climbers have scaled the summit since 1953, when it was first conquered by New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay. USA Today contributed to this report.

The mayor recused herself from previous votes on the Foothills Mall redevelopment because a potential conflict of interest. Her home is about 350 feet north of the mall property. In November 2012, the majority of council memKaren bers said Weitkunat Weitkunat might indirectly benefit from what happens with the mall because the value of her home could increase as the area is redeveloped. The decision on the mall was made when a revised development agreement for the $313 million project was ap-

proved in January, Weitkunat said. Therefore, her participation in discussions about details of the project as it moves forward shouldn’t be an issue. The previous council’s opinion on a potential conflict of interest was only advisory in nature, she said. “I could choose to do whatever I wanted,” she said. The mayor still has a potential conflict because she stands to benefit more from the mall’s redevelopment than the average resident, said Councilmember Ross Cunniff. Although many people live near the mall, they are not elected officials, he said. “My gut feeling is it would not look good for her to get involved at this time,” Cunniff said. Weitkunat said she supports the proposed changes to the agreement, including reducing the amount of space in the rebuilt mall that needs

to be pre-leased before public funding could be released. The funding would come from the sale of bonds by a metropolitan district covering the mall area. Revitalizing the mall is a communitywide issue, Weitkunat said, because sales tax dollars generated from it would support city services. “With all of the programs we want to promote — transit, affordable housing, transportation, the environment — the question becomes, ‘Where does the money to do that come from?’” she said. “To deny a revenuegenerating option and ignore the consequences to the community is disturbing to me.” Councilwoman Lisa Poppaw, who voted for the development agreement in January, was prepared to vote against the proposed amendments on Tuesday. But she supported tabling the proposal until May 6. Postponing the decision

will allow time for residents to weigh in on the issue, she said. It also will allow the city’s various boards and commissions to study the amendments. Poppaw said she is keeping an open mind on the proposal. “I intend to spend the next few weeks working on getting the best deal for the citizens of Fort Collins,” she said. “Really, that’s what we all want.” Under the current agreement, Alberta must pre-lease 240,000 square feet of space for the bond sale to go forward. Of that square footage, 120,000 must be for stores new to Fort Collins. The developer has asked to change the agreement so that when 155,000 square feet of space is leased — with 90,000 of it for stores new to the city — the bonds could be sold and up to $23 million in proceeds could be released. The remaining $30 million would be placed in escrow. It

would be released in $10 million increments as addition leasing goals are achieved. Part of the funding would be used to build a new activity center at the mall and a pedestrian underpass of College Avenue. Representatives of Alberta and its equity partner, Walton Street Capital, told council members an initial wave of bond revenue is needed to keep the project moving forward. Without the amendment, the planned reopening of the new mall could be delayed beyond the goal of holiday 2015. Cunniff said in the coming weeks he wants to see more data supporting the notion that the proposed amendments would make for a better deal for the city than the current agreement. Cunniff also said he is not convinced that projections for the amount of sales tax revenue that would come to the city with the redevelop-

ment are accurate. City staff members have said the city faces no financial risk from the complex financing deal with Alberta. Mayor pro tem Gerry Horak said he hopes residents and council members will take the next few weeks to better understand the agreement. The amended agreement would be better than the current agreement, he said. Having a large equity firm such as Walton involved and willing to invest more than $50 million on the project shows its viability, he said. Poppaw said she has supported plans for the mall up to this point and still wants to see the project succeed. But she doesn’t want the agreement to keep changing without a clear benefit to city residents. “Do I want to see the mall redeveloped? Yes, I do. Do I want to see it done at any cost? No, I do not.”

stage,” City Manager Darin Atteberry said. “A few more weeks will be good for the project and ultimately

the council’s understanding. I’m trying to understand individual council members’ concerns and what the ramifications are of a delay or no vote.” With council seemingly deadlocked 3-3 on the issue that would result in the the refusal of developers’ request, Provost hopes council members will have an opportunity to spend more time on the matter and “come to a different place and different conclusion.” “We are not getting one additional dollar out of this ... we are not changing the plan, we are not getting any more money. The project is ready to go. We are ready to close. There is no change to the plan. Those are the facts,” he said. “It doesn’t result in any windfall or one extra dollar.” The initial benchmark of 155,000 square feet leased generates $23 million in disbursed bond proceeds. The rest is held in escrow until the company meets other benchmarks.

Revenge porn penalties considered in Colorado proposal says it highlights how legislators are trying to catch up with new crimes brought on by technological advances. “Things are moving so fast in the cyber world,” said Rep. Amy Stephens, R-Monument. Revenge porn has gotten to be common enough that about two dozen states have proposed bills to address the

would also be fined at least $10,000 and be ordered to remove the images from the Internet. While it’s difficult to pinpoint just how widespread revenge porn is in Colorado and nationwide, the Pew Research Internet Project said in a survey released in late 2012 that about 15 percent of adults with cellphones reported receiving nude or

But she shelved her bill after prosecutors said existing child exploitation laws already cover the problem. Her new bill is scheduled for its first committee hearing next week.

Bus Continued from Page A1

Brianna said. She was sick and planned to miss school Friday morning. When she heard the crash, she ran to the bus with her mom, Patti Meyer, who then helped evacuate the students and driver. Authorities at the scene said the woman somehow managed to “let herself out of the car and then collapsed” after the car became lodged under the back of the bus. Investigators remained at the crash site through Friday morning, and crews had to hoist the bus off the ground in order to pull the mangled car out from under it. Investigators determined the impact from the crash shoved the parked school bus forward by 18 feet, Lewis said, adding that neither excessive speed nor drug or alcohol use are considered factors in the crash at this time. The speed limit on that stretch of road is 55 mph, and there was no sign warning motorists of the school bus stop. It was not clear Friday afternoon what role, if any, sun glare or distracted driving played in the wreck. The incident remains under investigation, Lewis said. Jessica Scott was supposed to be on the bus when the crash occurred, but she was running late and missed it. Her two best friends, whose names are being withheld due to privacy concerns, were among those injured. She said she had been talking with at least one of them who was at the hospital, shaken and with minor back pain. “It is very ironic. We don’t miss the bus that much,” Jessica’s mother, Lesli Scott, told reporters. “But we do every once in a while. It was just one morning that I was like, ‘Thank you God we were not on that bus.’” Parents and students who live along the bus route, which spans rural reaches of the county, spent the morning on the phone with friends and neighbors making sure everyone was OK, she said. Poudre School District spokeswoman Danielle Clark alerted parents in the morning via email that a crash had involved bus No. 3092. She reassured parents that anyone whose student was involved in the crash had already been contacted. The schools provided counselors and mental health experts to talk to any student seeking help relating to the incident, she said. “As the PSD community, we embrace Wellington Middle School, Eyestone Elementary School along with their marvelous staff and families as well as the PSD Transportation Department,” Superintendent Sandra Smyser wrote in an afternoon letter to parents. “We have seen in the fires, floods and other difficult days, how we rally around one another in times of need.” Jason Pohl covers breaking news for the Coloradoan.

New Belgium to break ground on May 1 By Josie Sexton JSexton@Coloradoan.com

Brooke Lee, behavioral health clinician and program coordinator at Touchstone Health Partners in Loveland, stands in the company’s Access Center on Friday. V. RICHARD HARO/THE COLORADOAN

CLINICIAN HELPS GIVE SUPPORT Brooke Lee manages a therapist team at Touchstone Health Partners in Loveland.

By Pat Ferrier

PatFerrier@coloradoan.com

Question: Explain what you do. Answer: I manage the adult outpatient mental health team of therapists at Touchstone Health Partners’ Loveland location. I’ve also been involved in the development and implementation of our new agencywide Access Center, which handles incoming crisis calls and requests for services. Q: How did you get into the business? A: I worked with individuals with developmental disabilities for several years before working briefly as a child protection caseworker. I completed my graduate level counseling internship at Touchstone and was offered a job at its conclusion. Q: What are the biggest challenges you or your industry face? A: Balancing my full-time job with my family responsibilities is a constant effort. Challenges that the industry face include adaptation to health care reform, accommodating increasing numbers of individuals being referred for treatment, and lack of available funding and resources to offset costs associated with client care. Q: What are the biggest rewards of your job? A: I get to be around co-workers all day who want nothing more than to help people. As a manager, I get to provide the support that they deserve, while also working to improve processes to make their job easier and client care better. As an intake clinician, I get the first shot at engaging clients, mak-

ing them comfortable, and finding services within our agency that may dramatically improve their lives. Q: What advice do you have for someone else thinking about a career in your field? A: Understand that providing support to others as a career affects you deeply, both positively and negatively. Also, be aware that there is a lot of work beyond the therapy, and be well versed in co-occurring issues like addictions and physical health. Q: What did you want to be when you grew up? A: I was always drawn to the helping professions, but didn’t realize that I wanted to be a therapist until I took a psychology class in college. Q: What do you do in your leisure time? A: What’s leisure time? With two kids and a full-time job, I don’t have any of that. I like to do outdoor activities with my family, run and read. My husband and I enjoy cooking and like to eat even more! My entire extended family lives in the area, so we spend a lot of time at family functions. Q: What role does volunteerism/giving back play in your work or personal life? A: I believe it is essential for one’s mental health to feel like they are contributing to this world somehow. My work allows me to do this, and I encourage all of my clients to identify something in their lives that gives them this sense of fulfillment. Q: What role does social media

BROOKE LEE » Age: 34 » Occupation: Behavioral health clinician and program coordinator at Touchstone Health Partners in Loveland » Education: Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Colorado State University; Master of Education in Counseling and Career Development, CSU; licensed professional counselor and certified addiction counselor III. » Family: Husband, Jason; sons, Cooper, 5, and Owen, 3 » Contact information: (970) 4944206 or brooke.lee@touchstonehealthpartners.org

play in your business and how do you utilize it? A: Touchstone Health Partners uses social media, especially Facebook and Twitter, as a way to engage the community in dialogue about mental health and addictive disorders and reduce the stigma to seek treatment. We are working to be a noted thought leader in the field of brain diseases and treatments. Q: Where is your favorite spot in Loveland and why? A: I enjoy Centerra because of its shopping, restaurants, movie theater, and activities for kids. Q: If you could interview one person in the world who would that be? A: I believe the average person is just as interesting as a famous figure, so I can’t provide a specific name as an answer. I’m lucky that, as a clinician, clients allow me the honor of interviewing them and hearing their personal stories every day. Young Professional is a collaboration with the Loveland and Fort Collins chambers of commerce.

Colorado adds 3,300 jobs from February to March Associated Press

DENVER — Colorado added jobs for

the 29th straight month in March, and as the good economic news mounts, more people are seeking work, the state’s chief economist said Friday. Alexandra Hall told reporters

the additional job seekers could put pressure on unemployment figures even as the number of jobs increases. The state’s unemployment rate for March was 6.2 percent, slightly up from the previous month’s 6.1 percent. But compared to March, 2013 unemployment was down from 7 percent.

“We’re seeing a lot of people moving into the labor force,” Hall said. “Their confidence is returning.” Employers also are optimistic, according to a business confidence index released Thursday by the University of Colorado’s Leeds School of Business.

Fort Collins’ largest craft brewer, New Belgium Brewing, announced Thursday that it will break ground on its Asheville, N.C., brewery on May 1. The new Asheville brewery and tasting room will occupy 133,000 square feet on an 18-acre brownfield site along the city’s French Broad River. A second building, to serve as the brewery’s East Coast distribution center, will take up 100,000 square feet in nearby Enka-Candler, N.C. The brewery, New Belgium’s second, will provide beer for the brewer’s expanding distribution in the eastern U.S. As of May, New Belgium will sell its beer in 39 states, Washington, D.C., and Canada. Once built, the Asheville brewery will have the capacity to brew 500,000 barrels of beer annually and support upward of 140 jobs, according to a New Belgium news release. Production is expected to begin by the end of 2015. Remediation efforts are now underway on the site, where Jay Richardson, New Belgium’s general manager in Asheville, is working to repurpose materials left behind on the property, including steel trusses, pine and oak beams, barn doors, metal roofing and siding and oak flooring. “We plan to reuse about 65 to 85 percent of those elements in the new buildings and plan to find a way to make the salvaged items we don’t use available to the community,” Richardson said in the news release. New Belgium stands as the third-largest craft brewer in the country. The Fort Collins brewery produced just less than 800,000 barrels in 2013.

NEW BELGIUM’S ASHEVILLE BREWERY » What: A 133,00 squarefoot brewery in Asheville, N.C., paired with a 100,000 square-foot distribution center in nearby EnkaCandler, N.C. » Capacity: The brewery will have brewing capacity of 500,000 barrels per year, supporting 140 jobs; the distribution center will support East Coast distribution of New Belgium beers » When: Ground will be broken on the brewery site on May 1, with the brewery set to open by the end of 2015. » Information: http://noconow.co/nbbnc (age verification required)

White House focuses on economics on Asia trip By Darlene Superville Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The White House

is focusing President Barack Obama’s upcoming Asia-Pacific trip on the economic benefits of closer ties to the region, but regional security concerns are likely to be pushed higher on the president’s agenda because of the tense situation between Russia and Ukraine. Japan and South Korea are eyeing the fluid developments in Eastern Europe through the lens of their own sea and air disputes with China, and North Korean provocations. The leaders of Japan and South Korea, both close U.S. allies, will want Obama’s reassurance that the U.S. will back them up. Obama also doesn’t have much to offer his hosts and he is not expected to make any major announcements while traveling. That’s partly because negotiations continue indefinitely on a Pacific-wide, free-trade deal among the U.S. and 11 other countries, including Japan. Disputes over access to markets, agriculture and automobiles have become sticking points in talks between the U.S. and Japan, according to senior administration officials. The administration long had wanted those talks to conclude by the end of last year. “The president’s trip is an important opportunity to underscore our continued focus on the AsiaPacific region,” Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, said Friday. “President Obama has pursued a strategy of rebalancing to the Asia-Pacific region, given its stature as the world’s largest emerging region.” Half of all growth outside the United States during the next five years is expected to come from Asia, Rice said, adding that the region also includes several important U.S. allies, developing democracies and emerging powers. “So we increasingly see our top priorities as tied to Asia, whether it’s accessing new markets or promoting exports or protecting our security interests and promoting our core values,” Rice said. Obama’s eight-day trip, which begins Tuesday, makes up for a visit that was planned for last fall but ultimately was canceled because Obama would have had to leave the country during the partial shutdown of the U.S. government that October. The cancellation raised fresh doubts about the U.S. commitment to the region. The first stop is Japan, followed by South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines.

DAVID SIROTA TOPIC: BANKING

Government uses leverage over financial industry If you read one business book this year, make it “Flash Boys” by Michael Lewis. The journalist famous for “Moneyball” and “The Big Short” takes readers inside the parasitic world of high-frequency trading that is harming the broader economy. The technical architecture of high-frequency trading is right out of a sci-fi movie — the schemes rely on algorithms that seem artificially intelligent, and the velocity of transaction signals approach light speed. As Lewis recounts, all that technological wizardry is marshaled to let insiders know information before everyone else, which consequently lets those insiders extract wealth from the market. The good news is that a financial transaction tax can at once raise public resources and disincentivize the most predatory schemes. The even better news is that structural changes in the industry have made such a tax more economically viable than ever. Before getting to that change, consider the basics of the tax proposal. The idea is that if a tiny fee is slapped on securities transactions — say, a cent — the tax will barely affect the average investor but will force high-frequency, high-volume traders to pay a lot. Consequently, those predators might see less of an upside from — or even abandon — their marketrigging schemes. And if they don’t, then at least the government will generate new resources to enforce laws protecting average investors. Of course, when this idea gained steam before, it was deflated by those arguing that the tax would prompt stock exchanges to move to jurisdictions that don’t impose such a levy. In this tale, the city, state or country that creates a transaction tax won’t stop highfrequency trading — it will only hurt itself by driving financial business to another locale. On its face, it is a powerful argument — so powerful, in fact, that when Chicago’s municipal government recently considered a financial transaction tax, the

GARRY TRUDEAU

proposal was quickly dismissed. The Illinois legislature then gave the Chicago Mercantile Exchange an $85 million tax cut when company executives threatened to move the company out of state. No doubt, fear of such flight seems logical. Essentially, tax opponents ask us to assume that in the Internet era, stock exchanges — like many other informationsector enterprises — are no longer moored to specific geographies because they can supposedly conduct business through any digital conduit. But that’s where the aforementioned structural change has created a flaw in the logic. In a financial world where microseconds are now king, all conduits are not created equal and average Internet velocity is no longer enough. That reality potentially reduces some of the industry’s geographic mobility. Why? Because while speculators themselves no longer need to physically be on specific trading room floors, they do need their computers to either be physically near those exchanges’ computers or hooked up to them through special ultra-fast conduits. Additionally, the newly computerized exchanges need ever-more massive data centers and conduits to process the accelerating information flow. All of that technology requires financial firms to make huge investments in lots of immobile digital infrastructure. That means it may now be prohibitively expensive and/or logistically difficult for those financial firms to simply pick up and move. Indeed, just like petroleum companies cannot realistically threaten to leave oil-rich locales if they don’t like a tax, parts of the financial world are captive to the locales in which they’ve built their digital systems. This is the silver lining of speed-driven finance. Simply put, the federal, state and local governments that host the financial industry have more leverage because, despite threats, they don’t have to fear the industry leaving. The only question, then, is political: Will those governments use this new leverage? Or will they do nothing to protect the average investor?

“Thumbs-down to the person or persons who keep tearing out articles from public library magazines. It is not the first time I have checked out a magazine from the public library and found that an article that looked interesting on the cover is not in the magazine because the pages have been torn out. Public library items are not personal property. When we check out items from the library, it is our responsibility to take care of them and return them as we found them, not with pages missing, torn or stained. I lost a library book once and knew it was my responsibility to pay for it. Read the back of your library card; you accepted all responsibility for all items checked out. If you liked the article so much, consider buying the magazine for your personal use and stop ruining the library books for everyone else.” Dolores Tamez, Fort Collins, public library card holder

ship Fort Collins for planning and executing the event; to The Coloradoan, Thrivent Financial and the Estes Park Trail Gazette for serving as sponsors; to Sports Authority, Jax, Safeway, Kmart, Ace Hardware, Outpost Sunsport, Christy Sports, Fort Collins Brewery and High Hops Brewery for hosting donation ‘drop-off’ sites; to all of the volunteers who participated; and to everyone who donated supplies leading up to and on the day of the event.” David Rout, program director, Homeless Gear

“Two thumbs-up to everyone who made the secondannual, citywide donation drive Fight the Freeze a resounding success. Hundreds of community members contributed much-needed supplies, and we are already hard at work distributing those supplies to the homeless men, women and children we serve. Thanks to the amazing team from Leader-

“Thumbs down to the person who stole my 9-yearold daughter’s rings on March 26 around 7 to 7:30 p.m. from the Hu Hot downtown restroom (shared by Armstrong Hotel, Mugs, Chocolate Café and Choice City Butcher). My daughter is so careful with her belongings, and the three rings stolen had a huge amount of sentimental value (not monetary value) to her. She took off her rings to wash her hands after dinner when she was distracted by her friend and brother, leaving her rings on the counter upon our departure from the restaurant. We returned within 20 minutes only to find that there was absolutely no sign of them anywhere. She was wearing her great-grandma’s faux three-diamond ring (three round diamonds side-byside), a mother’s ring she found buried beneath our huge cottonwood trees and a heart-shaped opal ring with hearts in the gold band that was given to me when I was 16 by my husband when we first started dating. My daughter is horrified and heartbroken that somebody would take something that is valuable to her. Please, please, if you have seen these rings or are the person who took them, do the right thing. You can return them to Armstrong Hotel Lost and Found or call me at (970) 556-1636.” Chris Domanik, Fort Collins

before construction begins? Are these funds purely donations, or will they convert into some sort of debt security at a future date? The remaining $110 million will be derived from selling revenue bonds (presumably, a stadium authority will be created by the CSU Board of Governors to issue these bonds). Who would buy a bond backed solely by the revenues of a stadium that generates revenue on fewer than 10 days a year? Weren’t revenue bonds proposed to finance the building of Hughes Stadium, but investor interest was so thin the plan was abandoned in favor of general obligation

bonds? If the same holds true in this case and the stadium’s bonds become an obligation of CSU (rather than a “stadium authority”), what will be the impact on CSU’s credit rating and its ability to issue bonds in the future if it has an additional $110 million of debt on its books? How will the bondholders be paid when the bonds mature? The stadium may be a good idea, with a high probability of success. On the other hand, it could be a boondoggle that will saddle CSU with enormous debt for decades to come. Leonard Abels, Fort Collins

“Thumbs-up to the Off-Campus Life-CSUnity group (Madison, Abby, Kelsey, Larry, Stefan and Erin). They were at our home, working in our yard laying bricks, planting plants and more, non-stop from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. They all worked together and did an outstanding job.” Tina and Ken Luby, Fort Collins

“Beattie Elementary would like to give Raintree Athletic Club a big thumbs-up for donating playground equipment worth approximately $1,400 to our school. RAC representatives will come to Beattie on May 7 to present the kids with the new equipment. Thank you to such an awesome organization that supports wellness in our kids and our community.” Janell Osborn, Beattie Elementary Action Team co-chair

“Thumbs-up to Clear Channel’s Big Country 97.9 and 96.1 KISS-FM for selecting Partners Mentoring Youth as the recipient of all proceeds generated from the Say Yes to the Donated Dress event at the Outlets of Loveland on March 29. This event was a collaboration of Clear Channel, Greeley’s Ehrlich Toyota and Burke Cleaners. Clear Channel collected donated dresses and sold them for $9.61 or $9.79 to raise nearly $4,000. These funds will go toward supporting youths in the Partners program, where positive adult role models are matched, one-on-one, as mentors to youths facing challenges.” Katy Courtway, Partners Mentoring Youth

LETTERS Questions about stadium funding need answers Despite much discussion regarding the merits of the project, I’m still unclear how CSU’s proposed stadium will be financed. As I understand it, the stadium is projected to cost $220 million, with $110 million to be raised via private donations. What, exactly, does “donation” mean? Does it mean $110 million in non-binding, revocable pledges; or does it mean $110 million in cash, being held in escrow pending the start of construction? Will the full $110 million be collected

The captain of a South Korean ferry that sank off the southwest coast of South Korea this week with hundreds of high school students aboard was arrested early today along with two crewmembers, the Yonhap news agency reports. The captain, 68-year-old Lee

Joon-seok, was jailed on five counts of charges including negligence of duty and violation of maritime law, Yonhap reports. The exact charges filed against the two crewmembers, who were allegedly operating the ship alone at the time of the accident, were not immediately available. Prosecutors, in seeking an arrest warrant on Friday, alleged that Lee had left the vessel in charge of two crewmembers who failed to reduce its speed in a cluster of islands and may have made too sharp a turn that caused it to list. The ferry, carrying 475 passengers, most of them high school students, went down off the

southwest coast of South Korea on Wednesday. Officials say 28 people died and 268 are still missing. Rescue teams, working in strong current and murky water, got inside the submerged vessel Friday but did not immediately report finding any survivors. Meanwhile, the vice principal of the school that arranged the trip was found hanging from a tree, police said, in an apparent suicide. The 52-year-old official, Kang Min-kyu, was on the island of Jindo, where rescued passengers have taken shelter. MacLeod reported from Beijing. Contributing: Associated Press

58,000 veterans need a home An audacious goal: Make that happen by the end of 2015 Larry Copeland and Gregg Zoroya USA TODAY

AUGUSTA , GA .

Marine veteran Isaiah Smith Jr. walks with the aid of a cane past the bunk beds of the Garden City Rescue Mission here and settles into a chair in the library/multipurpose room where social workers have set up a makeshift office. One of the last homeless veterans in a metropolitan area of 324,000, the trim man smiles wanly as he passes a sheaf of papers listing apartments available for rent to two women from the Augusta Warrior Project eager to help him find a place to live. “I just want to take a breather,” the veteran says about life on the streets or in shelters, “get back to where I was when everything was in balance in my life.”

At 51, with a history of drug use and illness, Smith in many ways is the face of veteran homelessness that Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki has vowed to end by 2015, a goal that became Obama administration policy in 2010. Veterans who have endured war and the strain of military service make up more than their fair share of the nation’s homeless. They are 9.3% of adult Americans but 12% of those living on the v STORY CONTINUES ON 2B

Isaiah Smith Jr., who served as a lance corporal in the Marines for 2 1⁄2 years, has been homeless since moving to Augusta, Ga., in January.

Massive wildfires are on the increase in the Western United States because of rising temperatures and worsening drought, a trend that could continue for decades, new research suggests. The likely culprit: climate change. Overall, the number of large wildfires increased by seven fires a year from 1984 to 2011, while the total area damaged by fire swelled by nearly 90,000 acres per year, according to the study, published this week in Geophysical Research Letters, a journal of the American Geophysical Union. The study comes against the backdrop of what could be a disastrous year for fires in the West, especially drought-plagued California, which already endured fires in the normally quiet month of January.

A fireman calls for more water on the burning Singer home above Glendora, Calif., in January.

Though relatively calm this week, “dry and windy conditions” will visit the Southwest next week, according to a forecast Friday from the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise. In May, the danger really begins to ramp up: “Above normal significant fire potential will expand over portions of Southern, Central and Northern California,” the NIFC predicted earlier this month. “Continuing changes in climate, invasive species and consequences of past fire suppression, added to the impacts of larger, more frequent fires, will drive further disruptions to fire regimes of the Western U.S.,” according to the study. Scientists only looked at fires of greater than 1,000 acres in the study in 17 Western states and found that man-made climate change was a very likely factor. “We have definitely seen a trend toward larger, more severe fires in the past decade or so,” Randy Eardley, chief of external affairs at the NIFC, who was not part of the study, said via e-mail. Eardley said that nationally since 2000, three separate years have seen 9 million acres burned, while 8 million acres have burned in three other years. Before 2000, no year had seen 8 million acres burned.

streets. Smith fits squarely in the largest demographic of these ex-service members — those 45 to 54 who wore the uniform after the Vietnam War. As the deadline to solve this crisis looms, the Obama administration wants to spend an unprecedented $1.64 billion in 2015 to end veteran homelessness, four times the amount spent in 2009 and the equivalent of about $26,000 for every veteran on the street. The goal is to create a coordinated effort by federal agencies, non-profits and local communities to rapidly identify, assess and move every last homeless veteran into housing, plus keep thousands from losing their homes. “Nobody who wore the uniform should be on our streets,” says Vince Kane, head of the VA’s National Center on Homelessness Among Veterans. It is considerable ground to cover in the 21 months remaining. Four and a half years after that ambitious promise, the troubled population has declined by

‘HARDER AND HARDER’

Further complicating the initiative are the thousands of homeless veterans who moved into housing but still struggle mightily with chronic drug or alcohol abuse, according to VA research. Those still left on the streets are the toughest cases, advocates say: veterans chronically plagued by substance abuse, schizophrenia and other behavioral problems. “It gets harder and harder as you get closer to zero, because the folks have been on the street longer,” says Larry Oaks, vice president of housing for Local Initiatives Support Corp., the nation’s largest non-profit commu-

nity development organization. The Department of Housing and Urban Development estimates that on any given night last year, nearly 58,000 veterans were homeless and that during 2012 — the most recent data — about 140,000 spent at least a night at a shelter or in a housing program. “It’ll be a photo finish,” Kane says of achieving Obama’s goal. “But I’ll tell you what, nobody is going to quit. There’s a sense that this is possible.” Much of Isaiah Smith’s life is cloaked in the things he doesn’t talk about. The Charleston, S.C., native joined the Marines out of high school in 1982 and served 2 1⁄2 years. He later drifted through warehouse labor jobs in Atlanta

before things began to unravel. A bout with cancer, drug abuse, a diagnosis of HIV and destitution followed. Smith, living at the shelter, says he’s been clean for 60 days. “I’m just trying to get some stability,” he says. “Get some housing, get my life set up here in Augusta ... the things I need to survive.” The Augusta Warrior Project, working alongside local housing, non-profit and VA representatives, has virtually eliminated veterans homelessness here. “We work all the shelters in our community,” says Jim Lorraine, president and CEO, who previously founded a support program for U.S. special operations forces such as Navy SEALs

Ukraine militants refuse to surrender Olga Rudenko

Special for USA TODAY MARIUPOL , UKRAINE

Pro-Russian separatists who have occupied administrative buildings in the east of the Ukraine for the past two weeks showed no sign of relenting Friday despite amnesty being offered by the Ukrainian government. “Come out. Your time has passed,” Ukraine Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said at a meeting in the capital of Kiev in reference to separatist militants who have take over buildings in at least eight cities in East Ukraine. Yatsenyuk said the government has drafted a law promising militants they would face no legal consequences if they leave seized buildings and give up their weapons. The measure was drafted after diplomats in Geneva on Thursday agreed on a statement in which they called on all sides to stand down in the conflict. Among those agreeing was Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, whose country has been accused by the United States of providing support to Ukraine militants who are demanding to secede from Ukraine and join Russia. Yet critically, the militants were not party to the agreement and Friday had not abided by it. “Lavrov did not sign anything for us, he signed on behalf of the Russian Federation,” said Denis Pushilin, head of the self-declared Donetsk People’s Republic.

Militants forced their way into several buildings in Donetsk, an industrial city of about 1 million people in East Ukraine on the border with Russia. The city has a significant population of Russian-speaking ethnic Russians, and it is they who primarily have taken over buildings and are building barricades to prevent Ukraine security forces from driving them out. Well-armed soldiers in matching uniforms and masks have been assisting the militants. Ukraine and anti-Russia residents of Donetsk say the soldiers are Russian military sent in by Russian President Vladimir Putin to create unrest as an excuse to invade as he did last month in the Ukraine province of Crimea. On Thursday night, thousands of people who do not want to join Russia held protests in the city. Pushilin says he wants a referen-

dum by May 11 to ask residents whether they want sovereignty. In Mariupol, an eastern seaport city of some 460,000 people, the city hall has been occupied since Sunday. Militants have surrounded the building with barricades made of tires and bags filled with sand. The several dozen men holding Mariupol’s city hall are demanding a referendum in which people of the region can vote on joining Russia. That is the same tactic used by thugs in Crimea who took over buildings with the help of Russian troops. The referendum was held and approved, and followed by annexation into Russia by Putin. “It would be great if Vladimir Vladimirovich (Putin) took custody of us,” said 26-year old Vitaliy Skovronskiy, standing on the city hall’s balcony that was turned into a lookout post to watch out

in case of police attack. Police say they have not attempted to take back the building. A so-called “anti-terrorist operation,” initiated by the Ukrainian government on Monday to retake control of such buildings seems to have been put on hold or has not been successful. A Ukrainian State Security Service spokeswoman, Maryna Ostapenko, said Thursday the operation had not moved forward due to pro-Russian groups — some whom she claimed were from the Russian military — using civilians as human shields. Some of these groups have been blocking roads into the cities and dared Ukraine troops to shoot at them. The troops have not done so, and instead are parked alongside roads. To keep more Russian military from getting into the country, Ukraine put travel restrictions on male Russian citizens between the ages of 16 and 60 from entering Ukraine. Since the beginning of the week, some 11,000 Russians were restricted from entering Ukraine, according to State Security Service, with 117 of them discovered to be previously involved in extremist activities. Ukraine’s prime minister said he expected Russia to immediately remove “diversionist groups” from the east of Ukraine, following the Geneva meeting. “We in Ukraine can restore order on our own if Russia stops helping the terrorists,” Yatsenyuk said.

Texts from doomed ferry faked, report says Doug Stanglin @dstanglin USA TODAY

Hundreds of text messages reportedly sent by missing students aboard a sunken ferry to family members were faked, according to Korea’s Cyber Terror Response Center, South Korean media report. South Korean news outlets on Wednesday had released some of the purported conversations, and they were cited widely by news outlets, including USA TODAY. The texts, ostensibly sent from students still trapped in the submerged vessel, begged for help or offered parting words to loved ones. The Yonhap News Agency and The Korea Herald quote Korea’s Cyber Terror Response Center at the National Police agency as saying on Thursday that they had checked cellphone use logs of the 271 missing and concluded that none of them had sent any text or made calls after the ferry sank. They found that none of the phones had been used since noon on the day of the accident, the Herald reports.

A useful tool is the VA’s Supportive Services for Veteran Families or SSVF, says Kelly Thorpe, director of homeless services for Warrior Project. Homeless veteran advocates like its flexibility — the money not only covers case management staffing, but the program provides cash for the myriad issues that can separate veterans from their homes or keep them on the street. An internal VA study shows that when this funding is sent into communities, 89% of single veterans and 93% of those with families who benefited from it were still in a home a year later.

PEW TAKES PEEK AT ‘THE NEW AMERICA’

In a wide-ranging look at what the future holds for this country, Pew’s new online report shows how dramatically the aging of America, combined with the shrinking of the white majority, will affect the nation over the next several decades. The combination of these two major demographic shifts “will put stress on our politics, families, pocketbooks, entitlement programs and social cohesion,” according to the study, which is packed with poll-driven data demonstrating where the stresses will emerge.

MORE MOMS OPTING TO STAY HOME

Pew’s deep dive into two longterm government studies has revealed that the percentage of working mothers is in a longterm decline. Only 23% of mothers 18-65 did not have jobs in 1999, but the number has climbed steadily, up to 29% by 2012 (the most recent year in which the studies were available). Pew attributes the rise to “a mix of demographic, economic and societal factors, including rising immigration as well as a downturn in women’s labor force participation, and is set against a backdrop of continued public ambivalence about the impact of working mothers on young children.”

TAXES AND FAIRNESS: PEOPLE SOUND OFF

Gallup has been asking for more than two decades whether Americans think people are paying their fair share of taxes, too much or too little. The results, on the surface, are not surprising: A plurality of Americans think the poor are paying too much, the nation wavers from year to year on whether “middle-income people” are paying their fair share or too much, and an overwhelming majority thinks the affluent don’t pay enough. However, the percentage who say the poor aren’t paying enough has grown in the last decade, while the percentage thinking the affluent aren’t paying enough has shrunk.

BOSTON VICTIM SEIZES NEW ROLE — IN HEELS Bombing survivor rehabs, introduces a feminine twist G. Jeffrey MacDonald

Special for USA TODAY NEWPORT, R . I .

When Boston Marathon bomb victim Heather Abbott first spoke to reporters a year ago, a hospital sheet covered her amputated leg and a smile shined on her face. Not only would she walk again, she promised, but she would do so in her usual footwear: high heels. Now she’s making good on that promise in style. When she answers the door at her Newport apartment, she glides easily through the hallway in high heels and without a cane. Seeing her in a cosmetic prosthesis, no one would ever guess she’d lost a leg. It’s been a journey, but not a solitary one. She’s sharing a secret to her extraordinary recovery: the guiding support and inspiration she’s received from other female amputees. As she begins following in their lead, helping other women adjust to life without a limb, she’s discovering what good can come of her ordeal. “There must be some reason why this happened,” says Abbott, 39. “It’s provided me with a chance to help other people. That, in turn, helps me feel better about what happened.” When the bombs went off April 15, 2013, Abbott just wanted to survive. She’d been waiting with friends to enter a restaurant when shrapnel sent her flying through the door and left her maimed on the floor. Her lower left leg felt like a fireball, she says. There was smoke, blood and glass everywhere. Someone said a prayer over her. Someone made a tourniquet from a belt. Soon, she was lying on a discarded door, being carried out to an ambulance in a chaotic crowd of people.

Heather Abbott practices running with Dan Connors, a physical therapist, Oct. 6, 2013, in Boston.

At Brigham & Women’s Hospital, she learned hard news: Her best prognosis would involve amputation below the knee. Accepting necessity, she agreed to the procedure. Within days, men who’d lost limbs in Iraq and Afghanistan were offering her tips on how to adjust physically, mentally and emotionally. Hearing them explain the activities they do, from running to rock climbing, Abbott was inspired. Yet for many of her questions, she needed a female amputee’s perspective. How could she go to the beach without drawing stares? Could she wear heels and skirts? How about pedicures? What could she do to feel feminine and attractive again? “To ask someone who lost a leg in Afghanistan if I was going to be able to wear high heels again would have felt silly,” Abbott recalls. “I felt these questions were not going to be important to all these male surgeons and war heroes.” Most amputees aren’t suited to answer questions like Abbott’s for a simple reason: 65% of amputees

are men. But those demographics haven’t kept Abbott from finding women to be her guides and role models — and becoming such a friend to others. A pivotal moment came with a hospital visit from Aviva Drescher, who stars on Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York. A glamorous 5-foot-10 blonde who’s been an amputee since a farm machinery accident at age 6, Drescher sees it as her “life’s mission” to help other amputees, especially women. When she visited the six women who lost limbs after the marathon attacks, she made sure to wear high heels. “Women are very concerned with how their femininity is going to be affected by the loss of their limbs,” Drescher says. “Wearing heels and skirts is very feminine, and I want to show patients that they will be wearing heels and skirts again.” The tactic worked. Abbott vividly remembers how Drescher arrived in skinny jeans and open-toe high heels with a cover

She answered Abbott’s questions even before she could ask them. “When I met her, I said, ‘I’m going to be OK,’ ” Abbott says. “I knew there was going to be a way to get back to being myself again.” Brigham & Women’s trauma nurse Claire O’Connell saw something in Abbott, too: potential to help others. By autumn, Abbott was being trained by the Manassas, Va.based Amputee Coalition to be certified as a peer visitor. Now, she helps amputees weighing the prospect of losing a limb. “I hope that I’ve been able to provide for them what Aviva provided for me,” Abbott says.

The Obama administration on Friday extended the review period on the Keystone XL pipeline, perhaps pushing back a final decision on the disputed project until after the Nov. 4 congressional elections. The State Department announced that officials need more time to review some 2.5 million public comments, and to assess the impact of a pending lawsuit in Nebraska that could change the route of the pipeline. Republicans (and some Democrats) who support the pipeline denounced the delay — placing the blame on President Obama — while environmental groups hailed it as a sign that the project will not move forward.

WASHINGTON

NATI HARNIK, AP

A stake marks the Keystone pipeline route in Tilden, Neb.

In its statement, the department, citing an “unprecedented” number of public comments on Keystone, did not provide a date for the end of the review. “The permit process will conclude once factors that have a significant impact on determining the national interest of the proposed project have been evaluated and appropriately reflected in the decision documents,” the statement said, not providing a specific deadline. “The Department will give the agencies sufficient time to submit their views.” In criticizing the delay, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said: “Here’s the single greatest shovel-ready project in America — one that could create thousands of jobs right away — but the president simply isn’t interested.” He added: “Apparently radical activists carry more weight than Americans desperate to get back on the job.” While the State Department is reviewing the proposal, Obama has said he will make the final decision on the pipeline based on the national interest. Environmentalists, many of whom support the administration, opposed the Keystone pipeline, saying it would cause ecological damage along its route from the tar sands of Canada to the Gulf Coast. Rachel Wolf, spokeswoman for the All Risk, No Reward Coalition, said, “Every day without Keystone XL is a day that we keep high-carbon tar sands in the ground.” The latest postponement “confirms, yet again, that this project is not permit-able,” she said. “This export pipeline fails the climate test, fails the jobs test, and doesn’t even have a legal route.” Democratic lawmakers who support the proposed oil pipeline also criticized the latest delay. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., who faces a tough re-election bid in November, said, “Today’s decision by the administration amounts to nothing short of an indefinite delay of the Keystone pipeline.” In November 2011, the administration announced that it was reconsidering the pipeline route which would delay the final decision beyond the 2012 elections. The State Department is reviewing the Keystone project because it involves another country. The lawsuit in Nebraska could affect the timing of the final decision.

Automakers rolling out pint-size SUVs for U.S. market as global demand grows

U.S. TO INVESTIGATE MEXICAN SUGAR IMPORTS The Commerce Department says it will investigate whether sugar cane and sugar beets imported from Mexico were subsidized and sold in the U.S. below cost, a practice known as dumping. U.S. sugar farmers say that’s the case, but Mexico’s government and sugar industry dispute the claim. The U.S. International Trade Commission is to make a preliminary ruling by May 12. STARTING A COMPANY? VENTURE CAPITALISTS ARE FLUSH Funding for U.S. start-up companies soared 57% in the first quarter to a level not seen since 2001, as venture capitalists piled more money into a growing number of deals, according to a report by PricewaterhouseCoopers and the National Venture Capital Association. Start-up investments totaled $9.47 billion in the first three months of the year, up from $6.01 billion in the first quarter of 2013.

Suddenly automakers are falling all over each other to introduce new small SUVs and crossovers in the U.S. Chrysler, General Motors and Honda unveiled entries this week in one of the industry’s fastestgrowing segments: the Jeep Renegade, Chevrolet Trax and Honda HR-V. The product onslaught follows on the modest success of vehicles such as the Nissan Juke and Buick Encore, according to Karl Brauer, senior analyst for Kelley Blue Book. “Both of those cars exceeded expectations,” Brauer said. “When you have that small of an SUV, you land in this sweet spot of smaller, lighter, fuel efficient, easier to handle and affordable.” Ford began selling a subcompact SUV called the EcoSport in India and other countries last year. Toyota is watching the emerging segment closely and evaluating whether it should develop a model for North America that would be smaller than the RAV4, said Bill Fay, group vice president of the Toyota division. The trend reflects the growing importance of the global automotive industry. If there is high demand for a smaller vehicle in emerging markets, it becomes easier to justify the investment to NEW YORK

make it in the U.S. For an industry that for most of the last century created products for Americans, then considered the rest of the world, this is a major change. Now, consumer trends elsewhere are affecting the design of cars sold here. “There is no doubt in my mind that the development of the Renegade was driven more by the Chinese market potential than U.S. market potential,” Brauer said. The Chevrolet Trax, which is built in Korea and Mexico and already has sold 90,000 in Canada and Europe, was designed off of the same platform as the Buick Encore and Chevy Sonic. Jeep Renegade — Chrysler’s first subcompact SUV — was designed in the U.S., but will be built in Italy. Mike Manley, Jeep CEO, said Fiat Chrysler could build the Renegade in China in a joint venture with Guangzhou Auto that should be completed in the next week or so. Jeep plans to sell the Renegade in more than 100 countries, and most of its sales will come outside the U.S. Globally, the subcompact SUV segment accounts for 2.7 million in annual sales, Manley said. About 1.1 million of those are in Europe, with another 1.1 million in Asia and about 250,000 in the U.S. Snavely also writes for the Detroit Free Press.

PLAN FOR TOPSY-TURVY WORLD You can’t reverse the upside-down world of retirement investing. But you can take some steps to ease its suffering.

Investing for retirement often takes many of the investment lessons you’ve learned and turns them upside down — in some ways, investing while you’re taking money out of your account is starkly different from investing while you’re putting money into your account. We’ll be visiting the subject of managing your portfolio in retirement over the next few weeks. But today, let’s talk about why some rules are reversed when investing in retirement. Let’s start with an entirely fictional example of Ralph Btfsplk, the luckless retiree. Ralph managed to roll up a $1 million retirement kitty. Ralph read a great deal about retirement, and used several retirement calculators. Using that advice, Ralph decided he could start retirement with a 5% annual withdrawal. He puts his $1 million into a fund that tracks the Standard & Poor’s 500stock index. Ralph left work at the end of March 2000, and withdrew $4,167 for his living expenses. (Five percent of $1 million is $50,000, and $4,167 is $50,000 divided by 12.) He took out that amount every month. By the end of March 2014, the S&P 500 had gained 63%, including reinvested dividends. But Ralph’s account stood at INVESTING EVERY SATURDAY

uDiversify. If Ralph had invested in a balanced fund, rather than in the S&P 500, he’d be doing fairly well. Balanced funds have a mix of 40% bonds and 60% stocks. Bonds often — although not always — rise when stocks fall, and vice versa. A typical balanced fund would have left Ralph with about $784,000.

$336,708 — a 66% decline. What happened? First, of course, is that Ralph has withdrawn $700,000. Nevertheless, large-company stocks, such as those in the S&P 500 have, historically, gained about 10% a year since 1925, according

Income makes your life a great deal easier. to Ibbotson & Associates. Ralph figured he’d be fine if he just withdrew 5% and banked the rest. But Ralph had two problems. The first was that the long term can be very long indeed, and that the long term can be punctuated by periods like 2000-2009, which were the fiscal equivalent of a

uSeek income. You don’t have to construct a portfolio of bank CDs and utility stocks, but income makes your life a great deal easier. Dividends not only cushiton downturns, but typically rise every year, giving you some protection from inflation. A steady diet of stocks whose companies consistently increase dividends could never hurt, nor could an occasional dose of utilities.

gallstone. The S&P 500 has gained an average 3.56% a year since March 2000, well below the long-term average returns. And had Ralph enjoyed steady, 3.56% gains every year, he’d be in better shape: He’d be sitting on about $743,000 today, which brings us to Ralph’s second problem. The world turns upside down when you’re taking withdrawals. Most people are used to putting money into the stock market at regular intervals, typically via 401(k) savings plans. It’s a smart, time-tested method of investing called dollar-cost-averaging. You’re buying more shares with each purchase, and when the market rebounds, you have more shares at a cheaper cost than if you’d bought them all at once. But Ralph started taking money out of his account just as the second-worst bear market since

uKeep a cash reserve, especially in your first years. A big downdraft in your first years of withdrawal can be catastrophic. If the market is plunging, you can dip into cash instead of selling stocks at their lows. uStart small. Financial planners typically argue that starting with an initial annual withdrawal of 4% of your retirement kitty will see you through most hard times, especially if you plan to give yourself regular “raises” for inflation. That’s not easy advice to follow. If you’re aiming for $50,000 of income a year, a 4% initial withdrawal means you’ll need $1.25 million to start.

the Great Depression began. Taking money out of your account is the reverse of dollar-cost-averaging, and has the same effect as bleeding a patient with anemia. Each time you sell, you have to sell more shares to get the same dollar amount. And, because you’re selling in a down market, your account falls more than the market does because of your withdrawals. Withdrawals also reduce your account gains when the market rallies. These are just two of Ralph’s woes. Taxes on any dividends and gains would have sliced his returns further. And eventually, he would have had to increase his withdrawals for inflation. The government’s consumer price index has risen 38% since Ralph first started taking withdrawals, meaning that his $4,167 would have had 38% of its buying power removed by March 2014.

NEW YORK Dodge is looking to expand the muscle car segment with updated versions of both of its muscle cars — the Charger and Challenger. For 2015, the Charger boasts a nimbler yet still muscular look that is just as spacious as the one it replaces. The updated Challenger is inspired by the classic 1971 model. Dodge unveiled both this week at the New York auto show. Celebrating its 100th anniversary as a brand this summer, Dodge aims with these updates to prove that greater fuel efficiency doesn’t mean there’s no room for muscle cars. Just the opposite, said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge CEO. “I keep calling these muscle cars, because people know what I am talking about when I use the term,” Kuniskis said. “But if you look at these two cars, we are expanding the muscle segment way beyond the traditional sense.”

ERIC THAYER, GETTY IMAGES

The new Charger body has been tucked and trimmed to look sportier and more agile. Kuniskis said 50% of Charger buyers are opting for the V-6 engine, which gets about 31 miles per gallon on the highway. The 2015 Charger will be offered with a new eight-speed transmission paired with either a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 on R/T models, or a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6. Sales of the Charger rose 19% in 2013 to 98,336. The new Charger body has been tucked and trimmed to look sportier and more agile. It comes in four trim levels: SE, SXT, R/T and R/T Road and Track. Production begins in the fourth quarter. The Challenger interior gets an 8.4-inch Uconnect media center and a 7-inch heads-up display.

There are three engines available: a 3.6-liter Pentastar, a 5.7-liter V-8 Hemi or a 6.4-liter Hemi. And Challenger offers eight (yes, eight) colorfully named trim levels: SXT, SXT Plus, R/T, R/T plus, R/T Shaker (for the scoop through the hood that shakes when the engine is revved), R/T Plus Shaker, 6.4-liter Scat Pack and 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker. The 2015 Challenger has a new split-grille, projector headlamps, LED tail lamps, a reshaped hood and an updated suspension. Kuniskis said the Charger and Challenger have advantages over such competitors as Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. “These are everyday muscle cars,” Kuniskis said. “People say they buy these cars because they don’t want to have to buy a third car. They want a car that has plenty of seating. So, I call them muscle cars, but it spreads way beyond that.” Dodge did not announce pricing or mileage for either model.

Acura pulls sheet off showroom TLX sedan

EILEEN BLASS, USA TODAY

Oscar Lao of Grip Limited shoots video of the Acura TLX at New York International Auto Show.

Acura showed off at the New York Auto Show its new TLX sedan, which looks nearly identical to the concept unveiled earlier this year in Detroit.

The new TLX is a vital launch as Acura tries to revitalize its car lineup, which has struggled even as its SUVs — the MDX and RDX — have been major hits. The 2015 TLX slots between the ILX compact sedan and the flagship RLX and replaces two cars in Acura’s lineup, the compact TSX and midsize TL. It melds the two by retaining an efficiency-minded four-cylinder version and a high-powered V-6 model with all-wheel drive for performance enthusiasts. The interior is generously trimmed in leather and softtouch materials, and the center control panel is heavy on technology with upper and lower screens. Base four-cylinder models have a conventional gear selector, but the V-6 gets a push-button transmission. Front and center is a 7-inch touch-screen that controls the next generation of the AcuraLink cloud-based connected-car system. All TLXs also have Siri iPhone integration. Two engines are offered. A new 206-horsepower, 2.4-liter directinjected four-cylinder is mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic with torque converter. It joins the carryover 3.5-liter V-6 that powered 2014’s TL. It makes 290 hp for 2015, up 10; it’s paired with a new nine-speed automatic. Pricing was not announced. Snavely also reports for the Detroit Free Press, Hanley for Cars.com

Subaru upgrades outdoorsy Outback

2015 gets sleeker, more luxurious Chris Woodyard and Fred Meier

USA TODAY

NEW YORK Subaru, one of the fastest-growing brands in the auto industry, is giving a classier persona for 2015 to the boxy Outback that otherwise oozes outdoorsy practicality. The new Outback, unveiled this week at the auto show here, has a “faster silhouette” and slimmer roof pillars, making it sleeker and allowing for better visibility, says Tom Doll, head of the Subaru brand in the U.S. The car should be in showrooms in August. The exterior is more stylish, the interior upgraded, and Outback will have more luxury touches. There

will be heated seats available front and rear, and optional 12speaker surround sound. Addressing gripes of the most intensive Subie users, who carry bikes, canoes, surfboards and the like on top of the car, the Outback has roof rack cross bars that are always with you — but tuck into the roof rails when not in use. The idea is to reduce wind resistance and improve mpg when you don’t really need cross bars. When it’s time to use the top for carrying, swivel the arms across to click into rails on either side. The Outback will come with a choice of two engines. The 2.5-liter flat (“boxer”) four-cylinder with 175 horsepower (up by two), is the one that most people buy. It has revised mounting to minimize a coarse feel and sound that some Subaru “boxers” exhibit. High-dollar buyers of the top-

Hillary Clinton’s memoir about her four years as secretary of State will be titled Hard Choices. A day after Chelsea Clinton announced she’s expecting her first child, publisher Simon and Schuster on Friday revealed the title and cover of Hillary Clinton’s book, to be released June 10. “All of us face hard choices in our lives,” Clinton writes in the book. “Life is about making such choices. Our choices and how we handle them shape the people we become.” As the author faces her own

choice — whether to run for president in 2016, as is widely expected — her memoir will recount her “surprise” after her unsuccessful 2008 presidential

bid when her former political rival, President Obama, nominated her to be secretary of State. As her publisher describes the book, “Secretary Clinton and President Obama had to decide how to repair fractured alliances, wind down two wars, and address a global financial crisis. They faced a rising competitor in China, growing threats from Iran and North Korea, and revolutions across the Middle East. Along the way, they grappled with some of the toughest dilemmas of U.S. foreign policy, especially the decision to send Americans into harm’s way, from Afghanistan to Libya to the hunt for Osama bin Laden.” Her publisher also notes that in four years, Clinton visited 112 countries, traveled nearly 1 million miles, and gained a “truly global perspective on many of the

major trends reshaping the landscape of the 21st century, from economic inequality to climate change to revolutions in energy, communications, and health.” It says the book will make “a passionate case for human rights and the full participation in society of women, youth, and LGBT people” and offer readers a “master class in international relations.” Journalists and political rivals will be most interested in how much Clinton reveals about her relationship and differences with Obama, controversies like the deadly raid on U.S. diplomats in Benghazi, Libya — Republicans have accused Clinton of a coverup — and her own political plans. Clinton has written four previous books, including a 2003 memoir, Living History.

Actors talk mice, men and making plans Trio finds depths and darkness in Steinbeck classic Elysa Gardner

@elysagardner USA TODAY

NEW YORK For James Franco, it almost was the one that got away. Four years ago, Anna D. Shapiro, the Tony Award-winning director of August: Osage County, approached him about appearing in a stage production of Of Mice and Men. The famously multitasking actor — who also directs, teaches and writes screenplays, short stories and poetry — couldn’t squeeze it into his schedule but was intrigued nonetheless. Fast-forward about a year and a half, when Broadway producer David Binder, who had acquired the rights to the play, adapted by John Steinbeck from his classic novella, contacted Franco with precisely the same idea. “Anna wasn’t involved at that point,” Franco, 35, recalls. “But David showed me this article where she had been asked what her dream project was, and she said Of Mice And Men. And it made perfect sense to have this great female director take on this male-heavy play that hadn’t been on Broadway in years.” (A 1974 revival featured Kevin Conway and James Earl Jones.) So it seemed the stars were aligned for Franco’s Broadway debut — but not all of them. After Franco had signed on to play George, one of two itinerant farmworkers chasing a dream of owning land in the Depressionera West, he and Shapiro began pondering the other roles. Two other well-known screen actors who had never appeared on the Main Stem came to mind: Irish Bridesmaids star Chris O’Dowd for Lennie, George’s wellmeaning but tragically simple companion, and Gossip Girl alumna Leighton Meester for a character simply known as Curley’s Wife, who is married to the contentious son of George and Lennie’s employer. “I said, ‘Go for it,’ ” Franco says from the first rows of the Lon-

gacre Theatre, where Mice is now showing. “Sometimes I have good instincts about casting. And when you perform something like this, you need to feel the relationships onstage are real. You need to feel the blood pumping through them.” O’Dowd remembers reading the novella in school. “It travels well. Steinbeck was actually kind of big in Ireland; he wrote about universal themes.” But when Franco describes Mice as “kind of a parable,” his co-star responds, “It’s an incredible piece of writing, but I don’t know what we’re supposed to learn, except that life is ...” O’Dowd spits out an evocative adverb and adjective, neither of which can be printed here. Franco smiles; he and O’Dowd clearly enjoy baiting each other, affectionately. “I think they learn

that these people want to connect,” Franco says. “Yet here they all are, in service of this greater thing that’s pulling them apart.” Meester, 28, notes that “through this whole play, everyone is planning. You guys are planning to have a home, a future together. My character has a different dream. To the untrained eye, she may seem unsympathetic, but she’s surrounded by men who treat her like an object or a child. She just wants to be able to talk to someone.” Franco nods. “She wants nothing more than what everyone else in the play wants — to love and be loved.” O’Dowd regards them both, amused. “No, no, no.

It’s this aspect, she adds, that gives Mice its stinging poignancy. “You get caught up in the dream. I do, even when I’m in the scene. You may know the ending, but you don’t want it to come.” O’Dowd concedes the point. “I think that’s why people have been so moved and devastated by the play. ... There’s something incredibly sad about wanting people to achieve, and seeing them fail. And knowing that they’ll fail.”

‘You Are Not Special’ teacher has more to say New collection gives McCullough’s brief words a sharper focus

Schwarzenegger passes on her knowledge as a recent grad.

Reams of advice for after the tassel switches sides

Bob Minzesheimer

@bookbobminz USA TODAY

Until June 2012, David McCullough Jr. was a high school English teacher best known as the son of a Pulitzer Prizewinning historian. Then he delivered a 12-minute commencement speech at Wellesley (Mass.) High School, where he teaches. “You’ve been pampered, cosseted, doted upon, helmeted, bubble-wrapped,” he told the graduates. “But do not get the idea you’re anything special. Because you are not.” A local cable-access tape of the speech went viral (2.2 million YouTube views) and led to McCullough’s collection of essays, You Are Not Special and Other Encouragements (Ecco, due Tuesday). McCullough, 55, who’s married and has four kids (ages 19, 18, 15 and 11), spoke to USA TODAY from his home in Sudbury, Mass. Q: You write that a line or two from your speech was taken out of context. How so? A: The line “You are not special” and its variants were just part of the speech and a setup for the ideas I shared at the end. Imagine, though, a teacher who thought some of his or her students were more important than others. Imagine a parent who thought that way about his or her children. Everyone matters — which tends to nullify concepts of specialness. The graduates to whom I was speaking were commencing the rest of their lives. No matter the distinction he or she might have achieved to that point, each was starting afresh.

Q: Explain your book’s subtitle, And Other Encouragements. A: An inflated sense of self can be burdensome for a teenager, even inhibiting. With expectations high, every step tends to become laden with significance. For some, this can be paralyzing. Better would be to set aside any self-satisfaction or notions of entitlement, focus on the moment, and try one’s best.

Bob Minzesheimer

Q: In your speech, you noted that at your school, “good is no longer good enough … a B is the new C … the midlevel curriculum is called Advanced College Placement.” What was the reaction? A: Everyone seems to agree grade inflation is an issue. What

to do about it remains elusive. Every student wants to do well as the culture defines doing well — which means, at the very least, to be deemed above average. Q: You write about loving every day you teach. Really? That’s not something you

hear from a lot of teachers and union leaders these days. A: Yes, really. I recognize I am very fortunate in this. Imagine, though, spending your working days discussing things you think important with people you like very much, and the purpose is their growth and the betterment of the world in which we live. Q: You also write about telling students that “grades only matter to the kid who’s missing the point.” What’s the point? A: The exhilaration of discovery, the excitement of new and interesting perspectives, of personal growth, and coming to find hard work a pleasure, and developing a discerning eye and an empathetic spirit and a sturdy backbone and optimism about someday achieving enough wisdom to be of benefit to others. Q: What’s your favorite novel to teach? A: I have a hard time thinking in terms of favorites. I always find myself quite enthusiastic about whatever it is I’m teaching — otherwise, why teach it? Talking about Great Gatsby or Zorba the Greek with interested kids is always, for me, a very happy hour. Q: And the most challenging novel to teach? A: Because the ideas of Heart of Darkness are often dense and gloomy and profound, and the writing often dense and gloomy and profound, generating an eagerness to continue up that river can be, for the teacher, a bit of a challenge — but who doesn’t like a challenge? Q: And finally, why did the son of a historian chose to teach English, not history? A: My father majored in English, too. I just love to read. I love sentences and words, literature and poetry and plays. It’s exciting to try to pass that on.

Russell’s grandpa, Dick Booth, coached field events at Arkansas for 27 years. He coached the United States Olympic jumpers in 2000 and is now the jumps coach at Alabama.

Russell just calls him “Papa.” “Whenever we’d go and spend time with my parents (Dick and Merry Lee Booth), he’d go work out,” said Russell’s mom, Reagan Russell, who is Booth’s daughter. “ ‘I’m going to work out with Papa’s guys,’ he’d say. He’d have to have his turn.” Reagan called those practice sessions, and her dad, a unique baby sitter. Russell calls it the genesis of his love for track, even if he wasn’t jumping nearly as high as those AllAmericans. “I never even came close,” said Russell, laughing. “I was happy if I got my back up onto the mat. (Booth) was just teaching me the approach, and I just wanted to go out there and have fun. Now that I’m older, and have figured out my events, I still really enjoy it and just have a love for track.” See AIR, Page C4

Caitlin Duffy is returning home to South Dakota to finish her college basketball career, and former Rocky Mountain High School standout is heading to Canada to finish hers, the two CSU women’s basketball players said Friday. Duffy, the Rams’ second-leading scorer two years ago and the first player off the bench this past season and Spotton were among four Colorado State University players who asked for and were granted releases from their scholarships, coach Ryun Williams said. Sophomore Emily Johnson and freshman Gabby Frykbo, both guards, also plan to transfer to other programs. Duffy, a 5-foot-11 sophomore guard from Rapid City, S.D., said she signed Thursday night with South Dakota. She’ll sit out next season under NCAA transfer rules and have two years of eligibility remaining, beginning with the 2015-16 season. She averaged 9.4 points and 4.1 rebounds this past season while helping the Rams go 25-8 overall, win the Mountain West regular-season title and advance to postseason play for the first time in 10 years. Duffy averaged 10.4 points a game and received honorable mention in All-MW voting in 201213 while starting 23 games for an 11-19 CSU team. The decision to leave CSU was difficult, she said. “It really was more just finding the right fit for me for the next three years of college,” Duffy said. Spotton, a 6-2 forward, is transferring to the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, where she’ll have three years of eligibility, beginning immediately. “I started watching how my future would be at CSU, and it just didn’t really look like I was going to be a really big player on the team,” said Spotton, who redshirted this year after playing in 56 games and starting 13 in her first two seasons with the Rams. “I just don’t really see myself as a bench player. … Looking at what I want See BASKETBALL, Page C5

5 players to watch in spring game

By Kelly Lyell

KellyLyell@coloradoan.com

Nobody is likely to win or lose a starting position for next fall based on what they do in Saturday’s annual Green and Gold Game, coach Jim McElwain said. But it’s a good chance, he said, for all the players on his CSU football team to showcase themselves in a game-like atmosphere in front of fans and coaches. It’s a chance to show the progress they’ve made

during the 14 spring practices leading up to the glorified scrimmage at Hughes Stadium. Here are five players to keep an eye on: 1. Bryce Peters. The redshirt freshman is the front-runner to become the leading ballcarrier this fall on a CSU team that lost recordbreaking running back Kapri Bibbs to early entry for the NFL draft and his top two backups, one to a transfer and the other to graduation. Peters, a 5-foot-11, 206-pounder from Houston, has been alternating

with converted safety Jasen Oden as the lone back with the No. 1 offense this spring. He’s shown that he’s a capable back through two spring scrimmages but has yet to show the kind of explosiveness and breakaway ability necessary to take pressure of what should be an improved passing attack. 2. Nick Stevens. The redshirt freshman quarterback has done a remarkable job learning the CSU offense, McElwain said. He knows the See FOOTBALL, Page C5

Johnson rescues Avalanche with a diving save in opener Defenseman’s play a key part of Colorado’s comeback victory in Game 1.

By Pat Graham Associated Press

DENVER — Erik Johnson saved the night for Colorado with his quick feet and thinking. The Avalanche defenseman raced from the blue line to the goal line and swatted away a puck just three inches shy of sliding in for a gamesealing, empty-net goal by Minnesota late in regulation. His stop during a 5-4 overtime win may have been overshadowed by Paul Stastny, who tied the game with 13.4 seconds left and then

scored the OT winner. But Johnson’s play certainly wasn’t lost on the Avalanche as they take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series into Game 2 on Saturday. “If that doesn’t happen, that hustle out of E.J., we’re not here in this moment,” Stastny said. Almost fitting that Johnson would turn in such a big play against Minnesota. After all, he was born in Bloomington — a suburb of the Twin Cities — and played college hockey at the University of Minnesota. That shot he stopped on the doorstep of the goal? It was taken by fellow Gopher Erik Haula. Trailing 4-3 with 1:32 left and goaltender Semyon Varlamov on the bench for an ex-

Despite dominating the shot count and much of the game, the Colorado Eagles lost 2-1 to the Idaho Steelheads in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series first-round Friday night in Idaho. With the game tied with less than three minutes left in the third, David de Kastrozza scored his second goal of the game with a top corner shot from the slot over the shoulder of goalie Dustin Butler to make it 2-1 Idaho. The scoring was opened by de Kastrozza on a power play 4:02 into the first period to give Idaho a 1-0 lead that the Steelheads took into the first intermission. The Eagles dominated the second period, but couldn’t score on Idaho goalie Josh Robinson. Finally Colorado broke through 3:22 into the third

mov and Ilya Bryzgalov, it was by far the biggest save of the game — the kind of play that lifts one team and demoralizes the other. “Certainly gives us momentum, no doubt about it,” Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said. “That has to hurt (Minnesota) a bit. But I’m sure they’re going to do a really good job to have their team ready.” The late collapse is already forgotten — as much as it can be anyway. The Wild were a relaxed group in an hour-long practice at Pepsi Center on Friday.

tra skater, Haula sent a wrist shot into the air and skidding down the ice. “I watched the replay and the puck slowed down,” Haula said. Just enough for Johnson, racing at full speed, to reach out at the last instant and bat it away with his stick, before crashing into the net and bumping it off the pegs. “I didn’t think I could get it, then I turned on the afterburners and it slowed down and turned on its edge and I was able to make a last-ditch, desperation effort,” said Johnson, whose team took it easy Friday rather than go through a taxing workout. “That’s just one of the plays in the game that was fun to make and help the team win.” With apologies to Varla-

HIGH SCHOOL TRACK AND FIELD

’Cats vaulter 2nd in Kan. By Kelly Lyell KellyLyell@coloradoan.com

Fossil Ridge High School’s Chloe Woest cleared 10 feet, 10 inches in the girls pole vault Friday to tie for second place at the prestigious Kansas Relays in Lawrence, Kan. Woest moved up to sixth in Colorado’s Class 5A rankings with the 6-inch improvement over her previous best. Fossil Ridge’s Tyler Russell set a school record in the boys 110-meter hurdles with a preliminary time of 14.71 seconds to earn a spot in Saturday’s final. Russell also finished second in the high jump.

GOING FOR GOALS A closer look at Tyler Russell’s goal to own school records in each of his five events.

WHAT HE’S GOT

» High jump – 6 feet, 9 inches (Best 5A jump in state this year) » Long jump – 22 feet, 2.75 inches (Tied for second-best in state this year) » 110-meter hurdles – 14.71 (Second-best 5A time in state this year) » 300-meter hurdles – 39.66 (Third-best 5A time in state this year)

WHAT HE’S MISSING

Triple jump » Record – 46 feet, 1 inch (Eric Lanza, 2013) » Tyler’s best – 42 feet, 9.5 inches (12th-best 5A jump in state this year) *Numbers based on data available on MaxPreps.com, SaberCattrack.com and information from Fossil Ridge track and field coach Pat Williams.

Growing and growing Booth was on a bus with the Alabama track and field team Wednesday as the Tide rolled toward Walnut, Calif., and the prestigious Mt. SAC Relays. Her recalled the babysitting practices. “I suppose as a grandparent, there isn’t anything more exciting or satisfying than having happy grandkids,” Booth said. “You just like to see them accomplish things.” Russell has accomplished much. He received his letter of acceptance into the United States Naval Academy in December, and will compete in track and field for the Midshipmen. The little tyke that could barely clear the mat at Papa’s practices just cleared 6 feet, 9 inches in the high

jump Tuesday at the Randy Yaussi City Track and Field Championships. It’s the best Class 5A jump in the state this season, and the third-best jump by a high school athlete nationally, according to MaxPreps.com. It helps that Russell is 6foot-6. “I just watched him grow up, and of course, he kept getting taller and taller,” Booth said. “I said, ‘Tyler, if you’re built like anything, it’s a high jumper.” Fossil Ridge track and field coach Pat Williams recalled Russell being just as tall as a freshman – just not nearly as coordinated. Reagan recalled it fondly. “The last couple of years, he kind of looked like a baby deer,” Reagan said. “I always say he looked like Bambi because he had these big, giant long legs.” Russell has since grown into those legs, and pushed into more events. He owns

school records in the high jump, long jump (22-2.75), 300-meter hurdles (39.66 seconds), and 110 hurdles (14.71). Those marks give Russell top three marks in the state in four of his five events (the other is triple jump, where he’s 12th). “I think what maybe surprised me more than him jumping 6-9 is him jumping 22 in long jump and (42) in triple jump,” Booth said. “Going to the Naval Academy, he’ll fit right in.”

Big influence

Booth said he dabbled in high jump, reaching 6-foot-2 using a modified western roll that allowed him to land on his hands and knees in the unforgiving sawdust pits in the 1960s. He was more of a football player, playing at Ottawa University in Kansas. “My dad was my high school coach,” he said. “Wasn’t anything I could do

about it.” Russell was a football player until his senior year. Booth called Russell’s decision to focus on track a good one. Either way, from an early age, Russell seemed bound by fate to be an athlete. There’s Booth, who raised a daughter (Reagan) who became a Division 1 hurdler at the University of LouisianaLafayette. Reagan married Randy Russell, who was a Division 1 linebacker at Arkansas. Reagan and Randy had Cody, Russell’s older brother who earned a football scholarship to the University of Northern Colorado. Then there’s Brady, a freshman football player at Fossil Ridge. Is this a competitive family? “Yeah, our whole family, it could be the silliest things in the world that we’re competitive about,” Reagan said. “He and his brothers are competing nonstop with everything.” But Russell’s influences go well beyond sports. Those influences go beyond the U.S. borders, to places where his grandpa on his father’s side served before retiring as an Air Force colonel. Russell’s dad, Randy, is a lieutenant colonel with the Air Force, on active duty as a squadron commander. “My whole life, I’ve known I wanted to be military,” Russell said. “I understand athletics aren’t going to be my life after college.” Reagan echoed Russell’s recollection, saying Russell was always “very, very, extremely patriotic.” “When they’re little, you’re like, ‘OK, we’ll see.’” Reagan said. After Russell’s visit to Annapolis, Md., his parents saw. He wants to be a pilot, Reagan said. The sky has been friendly to him so far. Tyler Silvy covers high school sports for The Coloradoan.

played sparingly in 43 games over the past two seasons, averaging 1.0 points and rebounds and 0.7 assists a game. Frykbo, who is from Sweden, appeared in 20 games this past, averaging 1.7 points and 0.7 rebounds a game. The Rams signed two players last fall and three more Wednesday, one a transfer from Nebraska who will have to sit out next season. The latest roster moves leave CSU with 13 players on scholarship for the 2014-15 academic year, two shy of the NCAA limit. Williams said he plans to sign two more players to fill those slots.

out of my basketball career, CSU isn’t the place for me anymore.” Spotton averaged 4.6 points and 2.9 rebounds a game in her two seasons. All four players, Williams said, are likely to find “a better fit” in another program. “Four years goes by extremely fast, and the opportunity to play is extremely important,” he said. “… They want to go somewhere and play, and I want them to have a great experience. That’s what we want for all of our kids.” Johnson, who is from Georgetown, Texas, has

adjustments he needs to make against various defenses, makes his reads in the proper progression and knows who he’s supposed to get the ball to in most every situation. What the 6-3, 190-pounder from Murrieta, Calif., hasn’t done yet is show that he’s as sharp physically as he is mentally. He’s done OK in two spring scrimmages, completing 23 of 39 passes for 295 yards. But he’s thrown as many interceptions as touchdown passes, and had one underthrown pass returned for a defensive touchdown. With the Rams expected to shift from a relatively balanced offense to one that throws a bit more often than it runs, it’s critical that they develop a confident and capable backup to senior starter Garrett Grayson. 3. Davon Riddick. The Rams are hoping the converted running back can bolster their pass defense with his speed and athleticism. The 6-0, 204-pound junior from Abilene, Texas, has good oneon-one coverage skills, coaches said. But he’s still learning the various coverages.

With two cornerbacks who started 10 or more games last fall returning and another who started three games back, Riddick doesn’t need to be an every-down cornerback. He has time to grow into a position that he said he’s becoming more comfortable playing every day. 4. Martavius Foster. At 6-3 and a solid 260 pounds, the junior from Starkville, Miss., from is an imposing figure whenever he steps onto the field. He spent last spring and the early part of last season as a tight end, but is a more natural fit at defensive end, defensive line coach Greg Lupfer said Thursday. He’s got the size, strength and speed to provide the kind of strong pass rush the Rams need from their interior line, so they don’t always have to blitz linebackers to put pressure on the quarterback. 5. Deonte Clyburn. While last year’s leading tackler, Max Morgan, held out of contact drills this spring while he recovers from shoulder surgery, Clyburn has shined as the middle linebacker with the No. 1 defense. The 6-1, 225-pound sophomore from Louisville, Ky., was in on a team-leading six tackles, all solo, in a scrimmage last Saturday in Commerce City and had four tackles, including three solo stops, and in interception in

the first scrimmage a week earlier. Although both Morgan and fellow inside linebacker Aaron Davis are back this fall, the Rams need to develop reliable depth behind each of them to be successful in a defensive scheme designed for the inside linebackers to make most of the tackles.

FORT COLLINS COLORADOAN

SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 2014

TYLER SILVY SPORTS

My wife and I decided to hike to the top of Horsetooth Rock last weekend. That’s a perfectly accurate statement. Now, the context: The most hiking my wife and I

have done since moving to Fort Collins in June 2011 featured a farther-than-normal parking spot at Target. And more context: My wife, Rose, decided we’d hike at Horsetooth Open Space. I said, “Well, now that we’re here, we might as well go all the way up.” Our relationship has since recovered, but not before going through what I’ll call the five stages of hiking to the top of Horsetooth Rock.

Stage 1 - Excitement

It’s a rare feat for a sportswriter to go to bed before 10 p.m. I hit the sack by 9:30 p.m.

Friday. We wanted to get there by 6 a.m. Despite snoozing through a few alarms, we still got to the trailhead by 6:30 a.m. I drank half our water on the drive there because I was thirsty and had a slight headache. Everything was going smoothly. We were going hiking!

Stage 2 – We’re hiking!

With our remaining water tucked into my hoodie pouch, we pounced on the trail. We talked of unicorns and happy things. Won’t it be nice to bring our daughter here

next time? Oh, yes, honey. It will be lovely. It’s so beautiful. We’ll alight atop Horsetooth Rock soon. Won’t the view be stunning? Why yes! But isn’t it already? I. Love. Hiking.

Stage 3 – Rationalization

About one-third of the way to the top (we thought we were three-quarters of the way there pretty much the entire time we were hiking), this trip was getting real. We took breaks every 200 yards, mainly to allow jogging seniors to pass us. “I just need to get a closer look at this sign for a few minutes,” I would feign. Ha! Jokes are funny. “It will get easier if we just hike more often,” Rose and I rationalized. She had a point, walking to Target is a breeze at this point in my life. I’ve done it hun-

dreds of times. I am one of the best at it, actually.

Stage 4 – Depression

At this point, I figured out that Coloradans are really nice people. I told probably a dozen or more of you that I planned to tackle a 14er this summer. I am in no way ready for a14er. You knew this when I told you. You didn’t say anything.

The only thing keeping us going at this point (I calculate about three-quarters of the way to the top) was the totally untested theory that we were just around the corner from the summit. In fact, we kept coming upon large piles of rocks and thinking, “Maybe this is it.” Yeah, it probably looks different from up here.

Stage 5 – Pure fear In addition to being novice-at-best hikers, my wife and I have a healthy fear of heights. Nearing the final ascent (yes, locals call this slightly tougher running terrain), Rose was in near-panic mode. I tried to build up her courage. “You’ve given

birth,” I said. “That’s way tougher.” “No,” she said. “This is worse than giving birth. When I was giving birth, I knew it had to happen. Right now, I’m just climbing a freaking mountain voluntarily.” And those are the five stages of climbing Horsetooth Rock. Everything after the summit (if you can call it that) was a blur of semi-elation followed by breakfast at Bluebird because, well, we

@jorgelortiz USA TODAY Sports

The New York Mets are celebrating the 50th anniversary of now-defunct Shea Stadium by rolling back ticket prices for their games this weekend. If only they could fast-forward to their rotation of the future. The early stumbles of the pitching staff — which entered Friday ranked 13th in the National League with a 4.33 ERA as the club got off to an 8-7 start — underscore yet again the importance of the Mets’ collection of young arms to their hopes of a franchise turnaround. The rebuilding plan general manager Sandy Alderson has put in place since his arrival in October 2010 relies heavily on young pitchers, and under his watch the club has acquired top talent such as current Mets starter Zack Wheeler and high-level prospects Noah Syndergaard and Rafael Montero. The vision of a dominant rotation featuring those right-handers along with 2013 All-Star Game starter Matt Harvey — out until 2015 after he had Tommy John elbow surgery — was part of what persuaded third baseman David Wright to stay with the team for perhaps the rest of his career, signing an eight-year, $138 million contract in December 2012. “When we discussed that, a lot of it had to do with this young power pitching that we have, and they definitely have not disappointed,” Wright told USA TODAY Sports recently. “I had a chance to see a lot of these guys for the first time this spring, and in my opinion the quickest way to turn an organization around is with young power pitching.” And it’s going to arrive within a matter of months, Alderson thinks. Montero, a 23-year-old from the Dominican Republic with excellent command, is deemed the closest to the majors and has won his first two decisions with a 2.60 ERA at Class AAA Las Vegas. Syndergaard, 21, was the talk of the Mets camp, just as much for his upper-90s fastball as his poise under scrutiny. Manager Terry Collins said Syndergaard impressed him with his work ethic, clubhouse demeanor and ability to deal with the media, but he needs polishing. The 6-6 righthander had a 3.94 ERA in his first three starts for Las Vegas. With two solid homegrown starters in their 20s already on board in Jon Niese and Dillon Gee, the Mets are trying to lay the foundation for a contending club for years to come. But while Wright has proved

JONATHAN DYER, USA TODAY SPORTS

Noah Syndergaard, who is 2-1 at Las Vegas, is one of the pitchers the Mets are hoping will lead them back to prominence. his loyalty by committing long term to a club that hasn’t reached the playoffs since 2006, fans haven’t been quite as faithful. Even with Citi Field opening in 2009, attendance has declined in each of the last five seasons as the Mets have finished no better than third in each. Patience is a hard sell in New York, and Alderson is not pushing that notion anymore. Instead, he ratcheted up expectations when he told a group of team executives and baseball staffers in February that 90 wins were a realistic goal. That number has been bandied about repeatedly since — also ridiculed at times — and Alderson has not backed away from it, although that was before closer Bobby Parnell was lost for the season after having Tommy John surgery. “It wasn’t a guarantee; it wasn’t a prediction. It was a challenge,” Alderson said. “A challenge to think about how we’re going to get there, to begin to change the

message — to our players, to our fans, to ourselves — to not accept mediocrity.” $90 MILLION TO FREE AGENTS

Toward that end, the Mets committed nearly $90 million in the offseason to free agents Curtis Granderson, fellow outfielder Chris Young and veteran starter Bartolo Colon, with Granderson getting a four-year, $60 million deal. After years of dumping salaries and acquiring prospects by trading big-name players such as Carlos Beltran and R.A. Dickey, the signings represented at least a show of faith by a franchise that had been shackled by the financial troubles of its owners, the Wilpon family, and the $137.5 million contract of oft-injured Johan Santana. However, the offseason spending was overshadowed by the crosstown New York Yankees blowing the budget and investing close to $500 million in free agents.

Plus, even with the new additions, the Mets’ $84 million payroll is no bigger than last year’s and ranks among the bottom third in the majors, a fact disgruntled fans have harped on. “What I like to point out is we probably committed more money than most teams this winter,” Alderson said. “And we want to be able to commit money every year. Being in the market for the first time in my four years is great, but we don’t want to wait another four to be back on the market.” That message is echoed by Wright, who was instrumental in luring Granderson from the Yankees. Granderson, who averaged 42 homers in 2011 and ’12 while taking advantage of the short porch in Yankee Stadium, said the first conversation he had in the offseason with anybody from the Mets was with Wright. The team captain presented a picture similar to the one that had persuaded him to stick around, emphasizing the up-andcoming youngsters. The theme was familiar to Granderson, a member of the Detroit Tigers when they went from 91 losses in 2005 to the World Series the next year. Granderson noted the success Mets minor league teams enjoyed last season — an overall 413-363 record for the USA-based clubs, with four of the seven reaching the playoffs — which he sees as a harbinger. “Those guys are coming up here together,” Granderson said. “I got a chance to do those similar things with Detroit, winning at the lower levels and then making improvement together with those guys.” IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

To come anywhere close to 90 wins, the Mets will have to address questions in their everyday lineup. Among them are first base — Lucas Duda is the starter over just-traded Ike Davis — plus catcher, shortstop and center field, where unproven players such as Travis d’Arnaud, Ruben Tejada and Juan Lagares, respectively, are attempting to prove they belong. It’s highly questionable the Mets have the weapons to stay in the NL East race, but Wright likes where they’re headed. “At this point, it’s not about pushing all your chips in and saying, ‘We’re going to do everything we can to win this year.’ It’s more about wanting sustained success,” he said. “The ultimate experience would be to have the ups and downs we’ve had so far and get things turned around, heading in the right direction and be a reason for that turnaround.”

BOSTON For Ryan Hall, if you can’t beat ’em, you head to Ethiopia to join them. In March and April, Hall spent a month in Yaya Village, Ethiopia, just outside the capital of Addis Ababa, training at an altitude of 9,000 feet in preparation for Monday’s Boston Marathon. “Just being up there, it’s really easy to see why those guys are so dominant and why they’re so good,” Hall said Friday. “Training at 9,000 feet is totally unlike anything I’ve done before.” The last time Hall ran the Boston Marathon was in 2011, when he recorded the fastest time ever

CHARLES KRUPA, AP

Hall has the top Boston Marathon time for an American, 2:04:58.

by an American at 2 hours, 4 minutes, 58 seconds to finish fourth. He dropped out of the 2012 Olympics because of a hamstring injury and missed the 2013 Boston and New York races because of injuries. No U.S. man has won the Boston Marathon since 1983. That streak is likely to continue, but so is this one: A Kenyan or Ethiopian has won the last 12 Boston Marathons. Last year’s winner was Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia. Hall said the growth in his running from his time in Ethiopia is noticeable. His wife, Sara, who trained with him there, finished fourth this month in the Cherry Blossom 10-mile race in Washington, D.C. “That was one of her best races,” Hall said.

Beyond the running experience, the trip also opened Hall’s eyes to other aspects of Ethiopia. He marveled as women his grandmother’s age carried massive loads of firewood on their backs up huge hills. “I’ll always remember the look in their eyes,” Hall said. “It was the best image of what true strength is. These guys (Ethiopian runners) are tough, accustomed to suffering. That’s what makes them so good.” Hall, 31, knows he will see another show of strength Monday after last year’s bombings. “Boylston Street is forever changed,” he said. Even though he was not at the 2013 race, he feels as if he were. “It was heartbreaking,” he said. “Almost like losing a loved one.”

NBA PLAYOFFS

THE FIRST-ROUND LOWDOWN The NBA’s second season is here. The playoffs begin today, and USA TODAY Sports’ Adi Joseph breaks down the matchups. (Points per 100 possessions.) EASTERN CONFERENCE

No. 1 Indiana (56-26) vs. No. 8 Atlanta (38-44) Series begins: Today, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN Season series: Split 2-2. Points per game: Pacers 96.7, Hawks 101.0 (Pacers 104.1, Hawks 105.9). Points allowed per game: Pacers 92.3, Hawks 101.5 (Pacers 99.3, Hawks 106.4). Worth watching: Pacers PG George Hill vs. Hawks PG Jeff Teague, Pacers PF David West vs. Hawks PF Paul Millsap. Scoring leaders: Pacers SF Paul George (21.7 points per game), Millsap (17.9). Why Indiana will win: Despite late-season troubles, the Pacers are the better team. Their bench is fortified, and they have the frontcourt size to overwhelm Atlanta, which is without several of its better center options, including star Al Horford. Why Atlanta will win: The Hawks have been playing better down the stretch than the Pacers, which isn’t a huge accomplishment. If Atlanta can steal one of the first two games at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, where the Pacers have the NBA’s best home record, it could create unrest in the Indiana locker room. Teague has the ability to dominate Hill in that pivotal matchup. Prediction: Pacers in 6. No. 2 Miami (54-28) vs. No. 7 Charlotte (43-39) Series begins: Sunday, 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC Season series: Heat swept 4-0. Points per game: Heat 102.2, Bobcats 96.9 (Heat 110.9, Bobcats 103.8). Points allowed per game: Heat 97.4, Bobcats 97.1 (Heat 105.8, Bobcats 103.8). Worth watching: Heat C Chris Bosh vs. Bobcats C Al Jefferson, Heat SG Dwyane Wade vs. Bobcats SG Gerald Henderson. Scoring leaders: Heat SF LeBron James (27.1 points a game), Jefferson (21.8). Why Miami will win: James is too much for anyone, or even everyone on the Bobcats, despite second-year small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s defensive improvement. The four-time MVP scored a career-high 61 vs. Charlotte in March. The Heat have experience, titles and talent. Why Charlotte will win: The Heat’s biggest weakness has been defending post scorers, and few are better than Jefferson. Point guard Kemba Walker should be able to run circles around Mario Chalmers, but the Bobcats need a miracle. Prediction: Heat in 4. No. 3 Toronto (48-34) vs. No. 6 Brooklyn (44-38) Series begins: Today, 12:30 p.m. ET, ESPN Season series: Split 2-2. Points per game: Raptors 101.3, Nets 98.5 (Raptors 108.8, Nets 106.7). Points allowed per game: Raptors 98.0, Nets 99.5 (Raptors 105.3, Nets 107.7). Worth watching: Raptors PG Kyle Lowry vs. Nets PG Deron Williams, Raptors PF Amir Johnson vs. Nets F Paul Pierce. Scoring leaders: Raptors SG DeMar DeRozan (22.7 points a game), Nets SG Joe Johnson (15.8). Why Toronto will win: The Raptors won the Atlantic Division because they were the bestperforming team in it, without a doubt. Lowry and DeRozan provide athleticism the Nets will struggle to keep up with, and they have a stable of big men willing and able to bang down low. Why Brooklyn will win: The old guys still can play. Pierce, Williams, Johnson, Kevin Garnett, Andrei Kirilenko and Shaun Livingston have tons of playoff experience and have been effective in the second half. They joined forces with the goal of postseason success, and new coach Jason Kidd has shown the potential to put it all together. Prediction: Nets in 6. No. 4 Chicago (48-34) vs. No. 5 Washington (44-38) Series begins: Sunday, 7 p.m. ET, TNT

JAYNE KAMIN-ONCEA, USA TODAY SPORTS

The Mavericks have a scoring force in Dirk Nowitzki, left, but were swept by the Spurs in the regular season.

DAVID BUTLER II, USA TODAY SPORTS

Al Jefferson’s inside game could help the Bobcats top the Heat. Season series: Wizards won 2-1. Points per game: Bulls 93.7, Wizards 100.7 (Bulls 102.5, Wizards 106.0). Points allowed per game: Bulls 91.8, Wizards 99.4 (Bulls 100.5, Wizards 104.6). Matchups worth watching: Bulls C Joakim Noah vs. Wizards C Marcin Gortat, Bulls SG Jimmy Butler vs. Wizards SG Bradley Beal. Scoring leaders: Bulls PG D.J. Augustin (14.9 points a game), Wizards PG John Wall (19.3). Why Chicago will win: Its defense is relentless. Wall will struggle to find breathing room, particularly on drives. Noah and Taj Gibson are going to make the paint a no-go area, and Washington’s three-point shooting can be streaky. Coach Tom Thibodeau has more playoff experience and in-game acumen than the Wizards’ Randy Wittman. Why Washington will win: The Wizards have a decided talent advantage on the Bulls, with Wall and Beal being the most gifted scorers in the series. Gortat and Nene give them enough size to keep Noah and Gibson occupied. Prediction: Bulls in 4. WESTERN CONFERENCE

No. 1 San Antonio (62-20) vs. No. 8 Dallas (49-33) Series begins: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, TNT Season series: Spurs swept 4-0. Points per game: Spurs 105.4, Mavericks 104.8 (Spurs 110.5, Mavericks 111.2). Points allowed per game: Spurs 97.6, Mavericks 102.4 (Spurs 102.4, Mavericks 108.7).

Worth watching: Spurs PF Tim Duncan vs. Mavericks PF Dirk Nowitzki, Spurs SF Kawhi Leonard vs. Mavericks G-F Vince Carter. Scoring leaders: Spurs PG Tony Parker (16.7 points a game), Nowitzki (21.7). Why San Antonio will win: The Spurs are the first team since the NBA/ABA merger without a player averaging 30 minutes a game, and only healthy, younger backup guards Marco Belinelli and Patty Mills topped 80 games played, yet they were the NBA’s best team. They appear ready for another Finals run. Why Dallas will win: Nowitzki cannot be counted out, and Monta Ellis is a high-level talent who has put it all together this season. And if any coach can handle Gregg Popovich, it’s the Mavs’ Rick Carlisle. Prediction: Spurs in 5. No. 2 Oklahoma City (59-23) vs. No. 7 Memphis (50-32) Series begins: Today, 9:30 p.m. ET, ESPN Season series: Thunder won 3-1. Points per game: Thunder 106.2, Grizzlies 96.1 (Thunder 110.5, Grizzlies 106.3). Points allowed per game: Thunder 99.8, Grizzlies 94.6 (Thunder 103.9, Grizzlies 104.6). Worth watching: Thunder PG Russell Westbrook vs. Grizzlies PG Mike Conley, Thunder PF-C Serge Ibaka vs. Grizzlies C Marc Gasol. Scoring leaders: Thunder SF Kevin Durant (32.0 points a game), Grizzlies PF Zach Randolph (17.4). Why Oklahoma City will win: Durant and Westbrook are the best star pairing in the NBA.

JIM O'CONNOR, USA TODAY SPORTS

Kyle Lowry will direct the Raptors’ offense against the Nets. They lost to the Grizzlies last postseason when Westbrook was out, but he has rounded back into form after three knee surgeries in a year. Everything appears sharp entering the playoffs. Why Memphis will win: The Grizzlies’ size and defensive intensity can be overwhelming, and they slow down the game more than any other team in the league. That could offset any talent disparity and keep Durant and Westbrook humble. Also, they make very few mistakes. Prediction: Thunder in 7. No. 3 Los Angeles (57-25) vs. No. 6 Golden State (51-31) Series begins: Today, 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC Season series: Split 2-2. Points per game: Clippers 107.9, Warriors 104.3 (Clippers 112.1, Warriors 107.5). Points allowed per game: Clippers 101.0, Warriors 99.5 (Clippers 104.8, Warriors 102.6). Worth watching: Clippers PG Chris Paul vs. Warriors PG Stephen Curry, Clippers PF Blake Griffin vs. Warriors PF David Lee. Scoring leaders: Griffin (24.1 points a game), Curry (24.0). Why Los Angeles will win: The Clippers arguably have two of the five best players in the NBA, making them a threat to beat anyone. Unlike last season, they have surrounded Griffin and Paul with sharp-shooting, defensive-oriented role players who can get the job done. Warriors center Andrew Bogut might be out for the series with a broken rib, so Griffin and center DeAndre Jordan can dominate the paint. Why Golden State will win: No team can bury an opponent in three-pointers like the Warriors

when Curry and Klay Thompson are hot. Andre Iguodala has stabilized the Golden State defense and turned it into a physical unit that could frustrate Griffin in particular. Prediction: Clippers in 5. No. 4 Houston (54-28) vs. No. 5 Portland (54-28) Series begins: Sunday, 9:30 p.m. ET, TNT Season series: Houston won 3-1. Points per game: Rockets 107.7, Blazers 106.7 (Rockets 111.0, Blazers 111.5). Points allowed per game: Rockets 103.1, Blazers 102.8 (Rockets 106.3, Blazers 107.4). Worth watching: Rockets PG Patrick Beverley vs. Blazers PG Damian Lillard, Rockets C Dwight Howard vs. Blazers C Robin Lopez. Scoring leaders: Rockets SG James Harden (25.4 points a game), Blazers PF LaMarcus Aldridge (23.2). Why Houston will win: Its two stars, Harden and Howard, are better than Aldridge and Lillard. It has developed a solid defense, while the Blazers struggle at that end. Rockets coach Kevin McHale dwarfs the Blazers’ Terry Stotts in playoff experience, and the same could be said of the players. Why Portland will win: Beverley and Howard have spent most of April nursing injuries, and the Trail Blazers have the weapons to expose those shortcomings if they are not fully healed. Portland has one of the best offenses in the NBA, and that could be in full effect if the Rockets try to push the tempo, as they often do. Prediction: Rockets in 5.

An affordable way many of us get into our first home, or acquire more squarefootage bang for the buck, is to buy new construction. These houses are typically produced quickly in planned neighborhoods. They use similar if not identical floor plans and builder-grade materials to keep the costs down. Some new homes are very well built, offer warranties and provide upgrade options. When you buy a new home, you expect it to be flawless. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. If you’re thinking about buying a home in a new development, ask the builder about the quality of materials and workmanship used. It’s a good idea to request specifics about both the manufacturer and builder warranties. When considering the quality of materials, the term “buildergrade” may not have a good reputation, but it’s not all bad. Builder-grade materials are the most cost-effective, readily available, off-the-shelf products commonly used in home construction. It’s important to understand, however, that most builder-grade materials will not last as long, or perform as well, as higher quality products. This is often true for light fixtures, paint, trim boards, faucets, flooring, adhesives, appliances, roof shingles, cabinets and many other everyday items we take for granted in our homes. As remodelers, we consistently see the premature aging of builder-grade materials in many houses, and the need for some serious repairs, replacements and updating within the first five to 10 years after construction. We recently worked with one local homeowner who purchased a builder-grade townhome. Less than six years after construction, she repaired two warped cabinet doors, stair stringers and treads, a ceiling fan, deadbolts and several faulty windows that failed to close and lock properly. Every new home will eventually show wear and tear down the road. But if workmanship is not at its best when the home is built, that once-affordable new home can require pricy out-of-pocket repairs sooner than expected. Even if you don’t need to make major repairs right away, you may want to replace or upgrade builder-grade materials to make your new home look better and possibly enhance its resale value. Simple fixes include replacing cheaper door knobs, drawer handles, faucets and lights with higher quality hardware and fixtures. You might upgrade to solid core paneled doors for soundproofing and replace particle See BUILDING, Page D2

SPENCER BATH ORGANIC PRACTICES

Plan now to effectively use organic practices April is again the time to begin garden planning. If not completed already, it is useful to draw a diagram for planting layout, space allocation, varietal selection and to organize your goals for the growing season. It will also be helpful to estimate square footage in order to identify potential input costs such as biochar, compost, rock dust, microbial innoculants, organic fertilizers or other soil amending materials. Soil tests will allow you to narrow your focus and eliminate unneeded expenditures while working to balance soil dynamics from a scientific perspective. Keep in mind that even organic fertilizers can throw off delicate soil balance, always use less more frequently as opposed to superfluous quantities. Additionally, minerals are the foundation for fertility, attention to magnesium, calcium and trace ele-

looms, by contrast, or varieties that are 50 years or older and more closely resemble their wild cousins, have grown substantially in popularity during the past couple years for several reasons. Primarily, heirlooms are chosen for their wide assortment of unique fruits and exceptional flavors. Heirlooms are stable, open-pollinated varieties with seed that can be saved and stored for future growing. Heirlooms also are true to parental lineage, meaning the seeds will closely resemble the parents from which they came. This is not true for hybrids, so seed saving is problematic. In addition, heirlooms are also valued for the higher nutritive value and have been coveted for their outstanding performance in home and local market gardens for decades or even longer. However, the goal of organic approach is diversity, so experiment with both hybrids and heirlooms in the garden, as nutrient value can readily be increased with proper soil balancing and availability of minerals. With seedlings and starts, compost teas or microbial innoculants are essential. Plant roots form a symbiotic (mutually beneficial) relationship with both mycorrhizae (fungus) and aerobic bacteria. Microbial innoculants can be found in most garden centers and are important for garden plants other than legumes. Establishing this relationship early well help ensure gardening success.

your short-term warranties run out. If you choose to purchase and remodel a preowned home, be sure to ask your remodeling contractor the same questions you would have asked the builder, if given the chance, when your home was being built. Request references from your remodeler. Inquire about the quality of materials and workmanship, and get specifics of warranty details in writing.

ments is paramount as we embark on the organic approach and relinquish archaic N-P-K (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) mentality. Seed and vegetable starts also should be reviewed for disease resistance, yield and other desirable traits. Increasingly, I have fielded questions regarding concern over genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, or plants that have undergone genetic manipulation, retaining genes and proteins foreign to the original plant. Though these highly questionable agricultural products saturate grocery store shelves from commodities such as corn and soy, and wholly should be avoided, fortunately they are not generally found at your local garden center. Consumers do have the option of purchasing organic seeds, which are varieties reared from plants grown in accordance with USDA organic certification requirements. These will be marked with the USDA Organic label. Some companies will treat seeds, usually corn, with a pesticide or fungicide, so if you have set goals for organic production, check with your local garden center or seed company in order to avoid treated seeds. Organic seeds are always a safe bet, and cannot by definition, be pretreated with chemical agents. Consumers can choose between heirloom or hybrid varieties. Commercially bred hybrids express desirable traits selected for high-yield production, ship-ability and shelf life, with flavor and nutrient content often left on the cutting-room floor. Heir-

Your pets More prosthetics used to help legless pets By Sue Manning Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — A 9-month-

old boxer pup named Duncan barreled down a beach in Oregon, running full tilt on soft sand into YouTube history and showing more than 4 million viewers that he can revel in a good romp despite lacking back legs. “It’s a heartwarming, wonderful thing to see,” said Dr. Bonnie Beaver, a professor at Texas A&M University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and executive director of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists. “These animals generally look to us as if they are very happy. We don’t know that they are, but they are excited and jumping around and doing things that are wonderful to watch.” More veterinarians are using wheelchairs, orthotics and prosthetics to improve the lives of dogs that have lost limbs to deformity, infection or accident, experts say. The move is driven by persistent pet owners who embrace their animals as family and aren’t deterred by the cost and commitment of outfitting disabled dogs with the devices. At the same time, there have been great strides in technology to keep up with U.S. soldiers returning wounded from war, and veterinarians have adapted the materials and know-how for the rising demand from clients. “There are so many things we can do to solve mechanical problems. … If you have broken parts, we can replace them,” said Martin Kaufmann, co-owner of Veterinary Orthotics and Prosthetics in Denver,

Naki’o, a red heeler mix breed, is the first dog to receive four prosthetic limbs at OrthoPets in Denver. Naki’o was found in the cellar of a Nebraska foreclosed home with all four legs and his tail frozen in ice puddles. What frostbite didn’t do, a surgeon did, amputating all four legs and giving him four prosthetics. LINDSEY MLADIVINICH/ORTHOPETS/AP

also known as OrthoPets, which helps about 2,000 animals a year. Most devices range from $150 to $2,000 but can cost more, Kaufmann said. Besides commercial manufacturers, there are likely thousands of backyard builders who have created carts, slings or other devices to help their pets get around. The number of pets using artificial limbs will never be huge, Beaver said. It takes a dedicated person willing to take the prosthetic on and off, clean it and teach the animal to use it. It will likely mean a lifestyle choice for pet owners. With the time and cost required, many wonder why people spend time on disabled animals when there are so many healthy dogs and cats awaiting homes. The answer, Beaver said, is “some people want to.” No one knows that better than Duncan’s owners, Amanda Giese and Gary Walters, co-founders of

Panda Paws Rescue for special needs and hospice dogs in Vancouver, Wash. Of the 3,500 dogs they have placed in the past 19 months, 10 were two-legged. Nine of them adapted to wheelchairs and found homes. Only 19-pound Duncan, whose deformed back legs were amputated, refused to take to wheels. Prosthetic legs aren’t an option for him because there are no partial limbs strong enough to attach them to. The couple often carry Duncan to ease the pressure on his front legs. “We are his prosthetics,” Giese said. There have been successes even in challenging cases, Kaufmann said. Orthopets helped mixed-breed puppy Naki’o after his four legs and tail were frozen in ice. What frostbite didn’t do, a surgeon did, amputating all four legs. Then, Kaufmann outfitted him with four prosthetics. “To see Naki’o at the beginning, he was protective

get in just the right position to scratch a seemingly unattainable itch. Perhaps one of the dog’s favorite anatomical locations to scratch is the ear, and given that their lack of opposable thumbs makes wielding a Q-tip impractical, who can blame them? But when scratching at the ears goes from an occasional activity to a near-constant cacaphony of jangling tags and nails raking over skin, trouble may be afoot. This may signal the presence of an ear infection. Dog’s ear canals are shaped differently from ours; they first head downward and then curve and turn inward

toward the brain. This makes it difficult to see exactly what’s going on inside your dog’s ear just by flipping up the floppy part, called the pinna, and taking a look. Vets know how to use a special tool called an otoscope to see all the way into the ear canal to the ear drum, and thorough examination is required to determine why your dog is scratching so much. What I often see when I look down there is goop — quite possibly smelly, and often completely obscuring the view. I also see the redness and irritation that’s got your dog so worked up.

Pirelli, a Labrador-golden retriever mix born in 2011 with his umbilical cord wrapped around his back left leg so he never grew a paw is shown in Atlanta, Ga. Pirelli uses a prosthetic limb, and with it is a ‘happy, expressive dog, able to run and play, retrieve things and eat his food,’ said Dudley Arnold, Pirelli's handler.

and guarded,” he said. “Six months after all this was done, he was just a fun-loving guy who likes to socialize.” Now, Naki’o lives with the Nebraska couple that found him. Another dog teaches kids what it means to be different. The Labrador-golden retriever mix named Pirelli was destined to be a service dog at Canine Assistants, a training school in Atlanta, but one back paw never developed. Pirelli uses a prosthetic limb, and with it is a “happy, expressive dog, able to run and play, retrieve things and eat his food,” said Du-

dley Arnold, Pirelli’s handler. Together, they have visited about 80 schools. “The goal was to help kids understand that just because your body doesn’t work, doesn’t mean you aren’t a good person inside,” Arnold said. The rarity of dogs missing limbs varies. Threelegged pooches aren’t too uncommon and often make it through life without help. But a dog shouldn’t have to do fine on three legs when it can thrive pain-free with a prosthetic, Kaufmann said. Dogs missing two limbs are still rare, but rescues and prosthetists are seeing

more of them. Giese said she doesn’t know what’s changed — if more dogs are being born without legs or if the animal welfare movement has helped them get turned over to rescues more often. After Duncan’s video went viral, 300 people emailed asking to adopt the dog that has a home with Giese. And her Panda Paws Rescue got a boost in donations and Facebook followers. “He put a smile on people’s faces and was an inspiration to others,” she said. “That’s quite a lot for a twolegged dog.”

I usually take a sample of the goop and look at it under a microscope. This is an important step, because knowing what’s causing the infection — typically an overgrowth of yeast or bacteria — tells me what medications to use to treat it. Getting the ear clean is key at this point, because whatever medications I prescribe need to land on the actual ear canal, and not the goop, to be effective. Particularly tough infections often need drugs that are given by mouth in addition to topical therapies. It’s critically important to bring your dog back for recheck exams to be

sure that the infection is cured before treatment is stopped. Any dog can get an ear infection once in a lifetime. But chronic ear infections are frustrating for owners and painful for dogs. Some dogs are predisposed because they swim a lot, and a moist, dark ear canal makes a great starter home for a family of yeast or bacteria. Dogs with short noses can have poorly formed ear canals that are narrow, and these are also excellent breeding grounds for infection. Allergies to something in the environment or even to food, and foreign objects

like grass seed heads are often to blame. It’s important to understand that the longer ear infections go untreated, the more difficult they are to cure. Chronic inflammation in the canal leads to thickening and scarring. Sometimes long courses of expensive antibiotics are needed. When medical treatment options have been exhausted, surgery may be the only option.

Scratching a lot at ear may indicate infection Let’s be honest: dogs scratch themselves. They impress us with their flexibility; they seem to be almost made of rubber at times based on the way they can contort themselves to

ZITS

DILBERT

PEARLS BEFORE SWINE

FRANK & EARNEST

GARFIELD

Teenage girl bothered by being mistaken for a boy DEAR ABBY: I’m a 14-yearold girl with a problem. Because of my buzzed short hair, slim hips and flat chest, I frequently get mistaken for a boy. It really bothers me because, despite my haircut and body shape, I have a feminine face and I wear women’s clothes and makeup. I’m not too much of a tomboy. Sometimes when someone addresses me with a male pronoun or in some other way mistakes me for a male, I’m too nervous to correct them. Is there a clever or witty way to correct the mistake? — Not a Boy in Brooklyn, N.Y. Dear Not a Boy: The person who made the mistake is the one who should be embarrassed, not you. If it happens again, all you need to do is smile and say, “I’m all girl.”

BREVITY

RUBES

Dear Abby: I have been dating a woman, and I am considering proposing to her. We have discussed engagement rings and she wants to design her own, which I think is great. However, I am unsure exactly what to do regarding the actual proposal. What ring should I give her, knowing that whatever I give her will not be her ultimate engagement ring? — Soon to pop the question Dear Soon To Pop: Marriage proposals happen in many situations and in many ways. There are no rules, and dropping to one knee and offering a ring is optional. The engagement does not begin when a woman starts wearing a ring; it begins when she accepts the proposal. All you need to do is say, “Will you marry me?” Dear Abby: A longtime friend asked me to be executor of her estate a few years ago, and I agreed. As time has passed, the details of the estate have changed several times. After the recent death of her husband, she again changed the beneficiaries and is now leaving almost half a million dollars to two animal shelters. It’s her money to do with as she chooses, and I don’t judge her. I do, however, have a problem executing an estate that gives that much money to animal care when it could help so many people. I don’t fault her for wanting to do it; I just don’t want to be part of it. Please tell me what to do. — Dilemma in Texas Dear Dilemma: Let’s face it. You are judging the woman and you do fault her for wanting to leave a fortune to four-footed needy creatures instead of bipeds. Because you are uncomfortable with her plan, you must tell her she needs to find another executor who is as committed to animal causes as she is. You’ll be doing her a favor.

Boyfriend punishing woman for her full sexual disclosure Adapted from a recent online discussion. Dear Carolyn: After multiple relationships not working out because both parties were dishonest, I decided to use a new approach to my current relationship. I am 23, met my current boyfriend (also 23) online and decided to be completely honest. This was meant to mostly cover my feelings, as I tend to hold things in unhealthily, but I let it fold over to all aspects, including the disclosure of my sexual history. I have now learned this was a mistake. This man is all I’ve ever wanted in a partner, we live together, we’ve talked about getting engaged, and I’ve never had a better friend in the world. But he can’t get past what I’ve told him; he loves to throw things in my face, such as how I won’t try something with him in the bedroom that he knows I did with someone else. How can I help him get past it? Expressing the frustration it causes me has had no effect on the way he acts or speaks about it. — Dirty Dirty Laundry He is the one who has to get past it, and it doesn’t sound as if he’s trying. If he won’t try, then I don’t see any other answer than to break up. I can’t speak for you, but “all I’ve ever wanted in a partner” is someone who accepts me as-is. You don’t have that. Maybe he’s just young and stupid, and will eventually figure out that your life mileage is not about him, but how many cheap shots are you prepared to take from him while you wait for him to grow up? When I read “he loves to throw things in my face” exactly one sentence after “I’ve never had a better friend in the world,” I just want to cry for how low you’ve set your friendship bar. Please take better care of yourself. Until you meet someone you feel lucky to know and who feels lucky to know you, as-is, you’re not there yet. Another way age might be relevant: I think people as they age also get more comfortable with not spelling out every gory detail — not (just) because it’s too freighted, but because it’s hard to imagine wanting to hear anyone else’s every gory detail, much less having to tell your own. You can’t prevent someone from having mental images of you with someone else, but you can certainly prevent them from being accurately detailed — and you can hold out for someone mature enough not to be threatened by the fact that you’ve had a life. Email Carolyn at tellme@washpost.com.

ROBYN DOLGIN DESIGN BY INTENTION

Water-saving landscape can include diverse colorful plants When people call or inquire about landscape design or extreme makeover ideas, they almost always say they would like to have a colorful, low-maintenance, water conserving landscape. They may use the term Xeriscape, which indicates they are familiar with the concept of dry landscaping.

I respond by informing them you can have a water conserving landscape that provides colorful, fourseason interest featuring a diverse range of plantings. After all, I am a horticulturist, and to me a landscape without plants is, well, a pretty desolate, lifeless one at best. By the time I get onsite, if mention of removing a lot of turf and replacing it with gravel comes up, I clarify that a certain amount of turf might actually be OK, so a discussion on a desirable turf to mulch ratio ensues. Keeping large areas of gravel debris free or weedless is nearly impossible even with landscape fabric underneath. It’s hard to dig persistent weeds out of 11⁄2-inch sized gravel, and almost mandates that chemical weed killers be applied regularly. Most people now realize

that herbicides are not the panacea once thought due to their detrimental effect on the health of humans, animals, the water we drink and the air we breathe. Turf areas can be reduced and replaced with larger garden beds and hardscapes, but you can also switch to a native grass like blue grama or buffalo grass if it fits in with the rest of the landscape. For a new bluegrass lawn, improving the soil by tilling in 3 cubic yards of compost is the best thing you can do. For established yards, aerating at least once a year in spring or fall when the ground is moist will help create a healthier, greener lawn. Going Xeric may reduce your maintenance somewhat, but it will not totally eliminate it with regards to plants. Most nursery shrubs that have been breed for their special

features require some sort of attention after four or more years, often in the way of a rejuvenation pruning to remove older branches or trunks. Perennials still need annual spring cleanups. However, if we can let go of the concept of having a Better Homes and Garden looking landscape, then native plants can be used. While they look at home in their native setting, the tricky part is in aesthetically integrating them into an urban landscape. Drought tolerant native shrubs are useful in filling in outlying areas of our property as their winter appearance may seem slightly rangy. This way, you can also take advantage of their value in attracting wildlife. Or, you can go totally native and while still using the tough shrubs as background plants, you can careful-

Xeriscape’s seven principles will help conserve moisture and hopefully you’ll also have the additional benefit of reducing your landscape maintenance if attention is put toward the design, plant and mulch choices and other components.

Most flowers are fragrant only when they’re fully open and mature; ready for business, so to speak, with nectar and pollen available to pollinators. On cloudy days, flowers don’t produce much scent, because insects are often less active on those days. Flowers that are pollinated by moths are more fragrant at night when moths are out. Flower aroma can be sweet like alyssum, peonies and violets, or spicy like carnations and stock. Others have an herbal, exotic or

Occasionally, a plant will surprise you with its fragrance; linden trees and privets have some of the most highly scented, if not very showy, flowers. Scent is a powerful memory trigger. It increases the vividness and intensity of remembered events. We can all be taken back in time by a whiff of a familiar fragrance. Scented foliage serves a different function for plants; it discourages animals from eating them. It has a tendency to repel insects, but is not foolproof in this.

Veggies to grow at high elevations By Mitzi Davis For the CSU Master Gardener program

» Broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi, peas, lettuce, Swiss chard, spinach and turnips can be sown directly into the garden. Their seeds will germinate and grow with daytime temperatures as low as 40 degrees. You can reseed these crops in August for a fall crop. These are some of the best vegetables to grow at higher elevations. If you are transplanting seedlings, harden them off by gradually acclimating them to outdoor sun, wind and temperatures and plant into the ground around the first of May. You can plant outside earlier by protecting them in a cold frame or with row covers. » Perennials that flower in mid- to late-summer and fall, such as chrysanthemums, asters, daisies and phlox can be divided in the spring. Spring and early summer blooming perennials like peonies and poppies can be divided in the fall. Daylilies and irises are usually divided after they have bloomed.

Fertilize perennials when you see new growth. Use a balanced fertilizer that is not too high in nitrogen. » “Tax Day” or Easter is a good way to remember that it’s time to remove tree wrap. Leaving wrap on trees can give insects and disease organisms a great place to hide and harm your tree. » National Arbor Day is Friday. The first Arbor Day was started in 1872 by J. Sterling Morton, a member of the Nebraska State Board of Agriculture. More than a million trees were planted on that first Arbor Day. The national Arbor Day Foundation also sponsors the “Tree City USA” program that honors communities that meet the four core standards of sound urban forestry management. Fort Collins has had the designation of “Tree City USA” for more than 30 years. Mitzi Davis has received training through Colorado State University Extension's Master Gardener program and is a Master Gardener volunteer for Larimer County.

A Colorado-grown potato has a lot going for it. With its historic heritage, it can claim distant pedigree to ancient cultivation centuries ago in the Andean Mountains to current development of cultivars which may prove to be the new superfood of our era, A.K.A. the “Super Spud.” It may not be a pretty vegetable, but it packs a nutritional punch. A lot of what is new and happening is right underfoot. The potato (Solarum tuberosum) is perhaps America’s favorite vegetable and ranks behind rice, wheat and maize as the world’s largest food crop. Idaho, Washington, Wisconsin, Oregon and North Dakota are big commercial producers of potatoes, with Colorado ranking fifth or sixth depending on the year. The Front Range was once home to extensive potato production, but now the San Luis Valley produces about 90 percent of Colorado’s potatoes. In 1910, the USDA began its potato breeding program, and today, the Colorado Potato Breeding and Selection Program, located near the San Dunes National Monument in southern Colorado, boasts an established research faculty dedicated to the development of new cultivars. The high altitude of the valley, with sandy loamy soil, adequate ground water, and abundant sunshine, makes it an ideal place for growing this tuber. The program looks to improve yield, quality, promote early maturity and raise potatoes which are resistant to disease and pests and have good storability. All of those attributes can be applied to the home grown potato. As a warm season herbaceous perennial, potatoes are relatively easy to grow. Requirements include space, enough sunlight (at least six hours a day), and organically enriched soil. Potatoes prefer acid soil with a pH or 4.8 to 5.5 but can tolerate alkalinity. Soils types may vary as well, with some potato cultivars that thrive in clay. Soil temperature is very important. The ground temperature should be at least 50 degrees and not less than 40 degrees, which means that early maturing varieties can be planted 4-6 weeks before the last frost. For our area, this means late April to early May. Try not to plant potatoes in areas where tomatoes and eggplants have been raised to prevent soil borne pathogens. Potatoes are usually grown from tubers and pieces of tubers. Use certified seed potatoes from a nursery or mail order company; do not use store bought potatoes which have been treated to prevent sprouting. You can get a head start on sprouting potatoes by chitting — cutting tubers into seed pieces with one or two eyes or sprouts each. Allow the cut pieces to air dry or place in indirect light in a cool environment and allow them to sprout before planting. Planting too soon in wet, cold soil will cause rot. Alternatively, black plastic can be used to warm the soil before planting. Late frost may blacken plants but often the root stem will recover. Potatoes are underground tubers that emerge from stolons. Recommendations for planting room suggest each row to be 12 inches wide and at least 4 inches deep. Rows should be 2 feet apart. Several methods include trench, trench with straw overlay

and simply planting on the surface. As the plants emerge, some of the tubers may find their way to the surface, causing greening of the potato and the production of solanine, which is toxic in large amounts. To prevent this, drag soil from between the rows and “hill up” at the base of the plant every two weeks. If you’re using straw, just add another layer of as the plant emerges. The straw will be mulch and help conserve soil moisture. Cultivars (cultivated varieties) of potatoes are early maturing (60 days), midseason (80 days) and late season (90 days). Green plants usually emerge about two weeks after planting. For our area, use early maturing varieties. Try to find cultivars which may be fun and different such as specialty varieties (fingerlings, purples). If space is at a premium, consider planting potatoes in old barrels, the compost pile, or in stacks of old tires with soil in the center. You can plant crop of cool veggies where your spuds once grew following your summer harvest. During the growing season, water potatoes at the base and avoid overhead spray. In addition, do not work the soil around the plants when it is wet. Local pests include the Colorado potato beetle (relatively rare for our state despite its name), leaf hopper, aphids and flea beetles. Other diseases include blight, scab, viruses and nematodes. There is nothing like digging potatoes and the process is wonderful for children as well. By August, your early maturing harvest should be ready. Leaves will start to yellow and wither. Harvest with a pitchfork to prevent skin damage. Or, lift your straw mulch and scoop away. Your efforts will be well rewarded at the dinner table. Many potatoes have a high satiety index. An average potato is 110 calories, and is fat, salt and cholesterol free. It has more potassium (skin on) than a banana, and is rich in vitamins C and B4. It has iron, zinc and is a great source of fiber. Most encouraging are some of the new cultivars developed in Colorado. Purple Majesty (2005), a purple flesh and purple skinned cultivar, has high levels of anthocyanidins which are antioxidants. The Rio Grande Russett is under investigation for its anti-cancer qualities. Who knows what other goodness will be “unearthed” in the future.
