City looks at new pot rules Issue concerns marijuana caregivers By Reid WRight Journal Staff Writer The Cortez City Council is taking a first stab at regulating medical marijuana caregivers on a municipal level. Although caregivers may not be banned due to protections under the Colorado constitution, the city is attempting to direct where and how they operate within the city limits. “Caregivers are constitutionally protected,” Mike Green, city attorney told the council May 8. “We are regulating them to the extent necessary for what I call health and safety.” This may prove difficult to enforce as caregivers register with the Colorado Department of Public Health, which is not required to report caregiver identities or locations to local authorities. A proposed orMike Green d i n a n c e city attorney came before the council Tuesday, and is based on re c o m m e n dations provided by the medical marijuana ad hoc committee and city planning and zoning.

Treasure of Cortez
Businesses give treasure hunters chance to dig for Cortez Cash and other prizes By Russell Smyth
Budget battle begins
Re-1 considers ways to make up $1.2 million By Michael Maresh Journal Staff Writer
Journal Staff Writer Land ho, ye scurvy mates. The Treasure of Cortez will “wash ashore” next month, but buccaneers will have to weave a trail of clues if they want to unlock the secret to glittering booty. Local businesses have banded together to reward shoppers with the Treasure of Cortez Treasure Hunt, said Tiffani Waters, the hunt’s organizer. “It is an event that is put on by a whole bunch of local businesses, almost 40, to basically get people out and about and excited about summer,” said Waters, the owner of Love on a Hanger in Cortez. “The main reason the idea came about is we were trying to get people in the doors of our businesses.” A lucky treasure hunter will scoop up the grand prize — $1,000 in Cortez Cash that can be used like regular cash at local businesses, Waters said. About $1,500 in additional prizes will be rewarded to other winners. Examples of additional prizes include gift cards and coupons. More than 170 Cortez businesses take Cortez cash just like U.S. currency, said Gayel Alexander, executive director of the Cortez Retail Enhancement Association. The retail association provides Cortez Cash to help promote local shopping. Alexander, a Cortez native, said she can’t recall any previous treasure hunt used to promote local shopping in Cortez. “From CREA’s perspective, when she (Waters) brought it to us to advertise (and sponsor), it was a brand new thing that we hadn’t heard anything about,” Alexander said about the idea for a Treasure of Cortez Treasure Hunt.

The Montezuma-Cortez School District Re-1 is trying to find a way to trim $1.2 million off its 2012-13 budget due to some budget decisions in past years that could be reversed in the upcoming year. The biggest increases from last year are resuming salary increases for teachers. The two unpaid furlough days teachers were forced to take during the 2011-12 school year will likely be eliminated, and the salary increases would be about $362,000. A 7 percent health insurance increase in the district premiums would cost the Re-1 $144,000 and additional benefits would cost another $69,500. Interim Superintendent Mary Rubadeau said the hope is to get Rubadeau teachers back on their step salary schedule, but added that decision will ultimately be made by the school board. She said if this item is included in the budget, all teachers would likely receive a raise for the first time in four years and added the raises right now are built into the budget. As a cost-cutting measure, some teachers leaving the district may not be replaced. Veteran teachers who leave will likely be replaced by a teachers with less experience that make less money, Rubadeau said. In addition, the Colorado Department of Education only increased its per pupil finding for the 2012-13 school year by a little more than $1, and the district is still facing a shortfall when compared with last year due to declining enrollment. According to Re-1 figures fulltime equivalency numbers will decrease by 38 students resulting in a loss of a little more than $216.000. For every student who attends school in the district, Re-1 receives

Shawn Gregory rounds a turn Saturday in the 12 Hours of Mesa Verde race. The Dolores resident won the male solo singlespeed class.
Phil’s World is often referred to as a “hidden gem” outside Cortez. The singletrack mountain bike trail weaves through desert and wilderness northwest of Mesa Verde National Park. Sand, gravel and stone embody the trail. But hundreds of people know of the hidden gem. That’s why mountain bike racers from across the country returned to the annual 12 Hours of Mesa Verde race Saturday. Nearly 800 competitive mountain bikers set up camp at the Montezuma County Fairgrounds to race the roughly 16-mile trail. “This year, we sold it out in 36 hours,” said 12 Hours of Mesa Verde Director Dani Gregory. “We opened
up more spaces than we had last year. But we cap it because we don’t want it to get too crowded on the course. Each year, we let it grow a little bit to see what it can tolerate.” In what was described as a dry, tricky and rocky trail, local favorite Shawn Gregory headed the male solo singlespeed class. At age 41, Gregory won in 11 hours, 48 minutes, 42 seconds. It is the second time the Dolores resident has won the 12 Hours of Mesa Verde (2010). “It was cool to basically defend the home turf,” said Shawn Gregory, who traversed 131 miles over eight laps. “It’s cool because it’s not just a local

“Transparency, accountability and the virtues of good government are compromised when the legislative clock is used to avoid consideration of important legislation.” Gov. John Hickenlooper
going to be killed today, but every time we’re a step closer,” said Dolly DeGregori of Denver, who brought a handwritten sign adorned with hearts and the message: “I want to attend more weddings.” Conservatives sought to portray the special session as a waste of taxpayer money. As they have before, Republicans describe the measure as a proposal for gay marriage, rather than civil unions. Civil unions would grant gay couples rights similar to married couples, including letting partners make medical decisions for each other. The protections also would enhance parental and inheritance rights. A radio ad by the rightleaning Compass Colorado asked listeners: “Coloradans continue to suffer from high unemployment
and a struggling economy. So why did Democrat Governor Hickenlooper, and his Democrat allies at the statehouse, call a special session of the state legislature to talk about same-sex marriage?” The regular session ended less than a week ago, after a late-night implosion on the civil unions measure. Republicans hold a 33-32 voting advantage but there was enough support for civil unions to pass. Democrats tried to force Republicans who control the calendar to bring the bill up for debate, when it became clear Republicans were filibustering by unnecessarily talking at length over other bills. Republicans then halted work for hours, killing the bill and several others that needed a vote before a key deadline. “Transparency, accountability and the virtues of
good government are compromised when the legislative clock is used to avoid consideration of important legislation,” Hickenlooper said in a letter to lawmakers. Other bills in the special session include setting a blood-level standard for what’s considered too impaired to drive under the influence of marijuana. Another bill involves $70 million worth of water projects, some of which are aimed at easing drought concerns. Legislators will also take up an unemployment insurance plan and a referred measure asking voters to repeal three laws deemed unconstitutional, including a 1992 voter-approved measure forbidding cities from passing anti-discrimination laws to protect gay people. It’s unclear how long lawmakers will be in special session. Fifteen days are already budgeted for this year, and it costs $23,500 per day for lawmakers to be in a special session. More than a dozen states allow either gay marriage or civil unions, including several that passed such laws this year. The debate in Colorado is playing out at a time when President Barack Obama became the first U.S. president to publicly endorse gay marriage, but North Carolina voters approved a constitutional amendment that bars civil unions and defines marriage as solely between a man and a woman.
Man arrested after high-speed chase Journal Staff Report A local man was arrested after leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase from Cortez toward Towaoc Sunday. Kenneth Bancroft, 18, is accused of nearly colliding with a vehicle while driving a sport utility vehicle under the influence of alcohol at speeds estimated at 90 mph. According to police reports, a Montezuma Coun-
ty Sheriff’s Deputy spotted a silver Suburban fail to stop at the intersection of Elm and Main Streets in the early hours of May 13. According to the reporting deputy, the vehicle then surged to more than 80 mph on Main Street, with the deputy in pursuit with lights and sirens on. The chase then turned onto Broadway. The suspect vehicle was weaving and passed approximately seven vehicles
— nearly sideswiping one, the deputy reported. Other deputies deployed two sets of spike strips along the highway, with the suspect vehicle running over both sets. After a tire disintegrated, the Suburban crossed over into the oncoming lane and came to a stop. Two occupants reportedly fled the vehicle on foot, and the driver, identified as Bancroft, was apprehended. According to the report,
he admitted to drinking and he said he was trying to get back to Towaoc because he was tired and wanted to sleep. The deputy reported that the Suburban smelled of an intoxicating beverage and there was multiple containers of beer inside. Bancroft was arrested under suspicion of substantial risk vehicular eluding, DUI, and criminal mischief. The passenger was not immediately located.

Reduced hours are not the worst possible option
nder a plan to pare postal costs without drastically reducing service to rural residents, several area post offices — Mesa Verde, Yellow Jacket, Ophir and Egnar — would remain open with reduced hours. It’s not a perfect solution, but it’s probably the best way to balance a long list of competing interests. The U.S. Postal Service deficit has provided a fascinating political exercise, because many of the proposed cuts, both current and past, have targeted rural areas where, ordinarily and abstractly, budget-cutting measures are viewed positively. “Live within your means” is a rural motto. Unfortunately, the lost or reduction of postal services affects rural residents’ ability to earn a living. Ideally, the agency would provide all the services everyone wants, at a price everyone can afford, without operating at a loss. Realistically, all three of those provisions are impossible. To begin with, many postal patrons want services they rarely utilize. They’ve also learned to do without many of those services. A local post office, preferably within walking distance, staffed during the hours when an employed person can visit it, has never been a reality for rural residents or commuters. Anyone who works 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. had better be able to pop into the post office during the lunch hour if they expect to be able to buy stamps, mail a package or sign for one. Affordability is a complex issue, especially in the sparsely populated The issue: rural West. Tiny post offices are less Postal losses. cost-effective than large ones, as is mail delivery to far-flung places. Aggregating mail-processing cenOur opinion: ters to serve larger populations renders them farther apart and farPlan could be ther from some customers. (A new proposal for processing centers is worse. due out later this week. Altogether, those factors cause serving a postal patron in, say, Naturita, to be far more expensive than serving one in New York, N.Y. Many other delivery mechanisms exist for both information and physical goods. Some of them are cheaper than the U.S. mail, some are faster, and some may be both; all have drawn customers away from an agency whose business model depends on volume. A private company could change, make cuts or get out of the mail business altogether; the USPS is not nearly so nimble. Pressured by citizens, postal workers’ unions and Congress, the Postal Service has backed off on plans to close small post offices, but those facilities still do not pay their own way. Their costs contribute to higher rates for all postal customers, and to the agency’s large loss (projected at more than $12 billion this year). Those numbers push the USPS ever closer to an eventual default on payments to the U.S. Treasury — and that, in turn, pushes Congress closer to a very difficult decision. With all that in mind, shortening hours — although it represents a reduction in service and a hard hit for employees — may be the best option available for small rural post offices. Far more drastic measures will be required to balance the USPS budget. An entirely new strategy is essential, and that strategy, whatever it might be, is sure to upset rural residents and nearly everyone else accustomed to having mail delivered at least nearby six days a week. This first step shows that postal officials did listen to the concerns of rural residents, and try to address them, rather than sitting in Washington offices applying a formula that prescribes a post office for every 10,000, or however many, residents. Miles must be considered in the calculation. Submit comments. Attend the meetings. Be realistic, though, about the odds of getting a better deal.

Stay tuned for the rest of the legislative story The actions taken on the night before the last day of the second session of the 68th General Assembly on the floor of the Colorado House of Representatives were quite different to say the least. No one, including all of the staff and all of the lobbyists with years of institutional knowledge, had ever seen anything like it. As usual, in the waning days of the session, we were working through a big pile of bills, most that could have easily been calendared earlier in the session. Any bill must get through second reading debate and approval on the day before the last day because second and third readings cannot take place on the same day. There were several bills that had come over from the Senate that were scheduled for second readings. Many of these bills had been heard and approved earlier that day by appropriate committees. These bills did not have time to be calendared and were put on a list of “special orders.” One such bill was the bill authorizing civil unions in Colorado, SB 02. As is customary, the majority leader started the second readings calendar by moving to proceed with “General Orders” and a vote was taken which failed because the Democrats and two Republicans wanted to bypass “general orders” and go directly to “special
Capitol Report Rep. J. Paul Brown orders” to debate the civil unions bill. To me, it is only fair to start with the bills first in line. The same motion was made and failed about four times in a row. We had plenty of time to get through general orders and debate the special orders, and this procedural prank wasted valuable time. Frustrated, Speaker Frank McNulty, recessed the House and met with the minority leader privately. The House was then called back to order and the motion for general orders was passed unanimously. With Rep. Jerry Sonnenberg in the chair of the Committee of the Whole, we made decent time on second readings and were within three bills of hearing my bill, SB 116, which outlaws the addictive designer drug “bath salts,” when one of the Democrats made an unprecedented procedural move and made a motion to “rise and
report.” This motion means that all debate on second readings is halted and House votes on what has been done as the Committee of the Whole. I have only seen this motion made by the majority leader or the assistant majority leader. It was another attempt by the Democrats to move into “special orders.” Chairman Sonnenberg immediately recessed the Committee of the Whole and nothing happened as time ran out and bills not heard on second readings died. So went civil unions and outlawing bath salts as well as the water projects bill that is so important to Southwest Colorado. The last day was spent amending Senate bills to incorporate and pass bills that were lost the night before. The bath salt ban was put into another bill, and bath salts will thankfully be illegal in Colorado. The governor called a special session and civil unions and the water projects bill will be heard then. Stay tuned for the rest of the story. J.

Legislature accomplished good things It’s a challenging assignment to sum up the past week’s events, or non-events, as the case may be. I’d anticipated being finished midweek and headed home for the interim, but instead the legislature’s been summoned back by the governor to a special session. The special session is to consider seven topics related to a number of bills that died on the House calendar as the clock ran out on our constitutional requirement that a session last no more than 120 days. I was concerned earlier about the backlog of bills to be heard before the end of the session and I suggested in an earlier column that we work late into the nights, if need be. We did work late some nights, but obviously, not enough. Returning to the topic of the regular session, though, I had guessed that politics would rule
the day. That happened, yet we also did a lot of good work. The budget bill and the school finance bill, the only two state constitutional “must do’s” each session, were passed with broad bipartisan support. Because of a mildly improved economy, cautious optimism in the budget process and the politically divided legislature, we were prudent in crafting the next budget. I’m very pleased with the session in terms of what I’d set out to work on this year. My persistent harping in committee, on the Senate floor and through introduced and debated resolutions, that we develop the necessary fiscal discipline to stop backfilling the budget by taking severance tax funds from local governments and water projects was mostly heeded this year. It helped to be able to describe to legislators from areas unfamil-
Life in the
Legislature Sen. Ellen Roberts iar with energy and water development just what happens on the ground in a district like mine when those monies are transferred away from their intended purpose. Another goal I had to work on was reducing the costs of healthcare in Colorado and several bills I carried, aimed at doing that, were passed. One addresses getting a better handle on Medicaid fraud in our system, another expands the use of assisted living facilities
over nursing homes when appropriate, and the third encourages innovation in new payment methods that reward health value over volume. All of these new healthcare efforts will need monitoring and follow up, but we’ve got a chance to bend the notorious cost curve in healthcare spending with healthier patients. I aim to continue seriously pursuing these goals. Last, but not least, is the passage of the bill eliminating the towing operator bond and improving the existing regulatory process in that industry. If you’ve been following that saga, it’s proof that constituent contact does indeed make a difference and I’ve got some great people in my district to prove that. We went through our share of trials and tribulations to get to this point, but with dedicated efforts from tow operators, certain fellow
legislators and the governor’s administration, we ended up with a much better situation than what was in place at the end of last session. I’ve enjoyed working with my Republican caucus; we exchange ideas, learn from each other and find that we share more common ground than not. Getting to know my Democratic colleagues in the Senate better was another positive. Now, on to the special session and home! Ellen Roberts represents Senate District 6 in Colorado’s General Assembly.

Wide, bitter rifts show no signs of ebbing A couple of years ago we lightly suggested that, if we can’t live together, the Red and Blue states should just form separate nations and be done with it. We facetiously suggested how the new map of North America might be drawn to accommodate those on either side of the philosophical divide, and we got quite a reaction. Today, we’re wondering if mutual secession might actually be the best long-term option to keep the peace and allow most
Americans to become at least content with their government. You have to wonder with the immediate nastiness of reactions to any number of Red-Blue issues whether any form of compromise will ever again be possible. Make no mistake: These rifts are wide and bitter and show no signs of ebbing. One side is pushing a laissez-faire economy, the other a strong social safety net and business regulation; one side talks of “tra-
Others Say the bennington banner bennington, vt ditional values,” the other individual rights for all, tolerance and modernity. One side has a traditional religious outlook, the other a mostly secular, scientific view. Face it, these two views of human existence have never coexisted peacefully,
and it is a good sign for our democracy that we are still looking to the ballot box to settle these volatile issues. In a sense, though, we’ve already seceded from each other. States like Vermont, New York, Hawaii, Oregon, most of New England, California and the upper Mid-
west exist in a different political universe than the one found in the South, the middle Midwest and the mountain states. The number of true toss-up states is right around a half-dozen out of 50. Which brings us to the idea that perhaps there is one issue the entire nation might come together over and support enthusiastically — state’s rights. Who would have thought? Of course, we’d have to find a way to increase those rights while still treating
smaller states fairly — perhaps allowing them to work more with populous, like-minded states. As for governmental approaches that might lead to discrimination against one group or another: Well, people would be free to move, from Red to Blue and vice-versa. Today, moving doesn’t always make much of a difference. Or we could all decide to start acting as if we are Americans, in every state, as we have when it counted in the past.

Furse is a politician, not a prosecutor Editor: It’s not surprising that a career defense attorney, like Rae Dreves, would write a letter in support of candidate Will Furse for district attorney. From a defense perspective, what better person to have as your adversary than a former defense attorney who has never been a prosecutor one day in his life. Attorney Dreves suggests we “restore the integrity of the District Attorney’s Office.” Where is the integrity in a candidate who has had a felony
drug arrest, was convicted of a misdemeanor, and sentenced to 18 days of jail? Where is the integrity in Mr. Furse becoming a Republican less than a year ago, and who filed a frivolous lawsuit against the Republican District Attorney candidate in Durango that forced the candidate to attend a court hearing in Denver, rather than campaigning, and then went on vacation when the court hearing occurred? Where is the integrity in Mr. Furse, who recently said in open court during a sentencing of his
client, who was convicted of selling methamphetamine, that he didn’t believe it was fair to give a felony conviction to someone who was selling a small amount of methamphetamine? Does that sound like someone who will protect your community from drug dealers? Mr. Furse isn’t a prosecutor, he is a politician. It is in the best interests of defense attorneys to have a weak district attorney like candidate Furse, so they can take advantage of his complete lack of any experience as a prosecuting attorney
and manipulate him into accepting favorable plea agreements for defense attorney’s clients. But, it is in the best interest of our community to have a weak district attorney? I do not think so. Just for the record, in a year and a half, District Attorney Wasley has successfully prosecuted and secured convictions for eight major felonies. Pat Grant Carolyn Lucas Mancos Via CortezJournal.com
DeGagne-Rule has experience, dedication Editor: The county clerk will soon be mailing out the ballots to registered voters in Montezuma County for the Republican primary. I can not stress how important it is that you exercise your right to vote. However, before you cast your vote I urge you to study the district two commissioner candidate’s qualifications closely. What is their position on important issues; how diverse is their business experience; what have they personally invested in supporting Montezuma County by serving on various boards and helping the
local Republican Party of Montezuma County with both their time and donations? After studying all these factors, vote for the candidate you feel best suited for the office they seek. I ask that you closely look at Pat DeGagne-Rule’s record in the above categories. I believe you will find that she far exceeds her two opponents in all these areas and that you will be impressed with the background and experience she brings to the Board of County Commissioners. Her diversity of business experience is particularly important, as being a com-
missioner is no different that being the CEO of a large, diversified business. She has been a partner in starting two successful business, held important positions in large companies and has a degree in business administration. Lastly, I ask that you consider the fact a woman has not served as county commissioner since Helen McClellan served from 1992 to 1996. After 20 years of not electing a female commissioner, isn’t this a great opportunity to show that Montezuma County can, again, elect a highly qualified female as county commissioner? Not only is Ms.
DeGagne-Rule highly qualified for this position, but based on the facts, I believe she is the best qualified candidate. She is always accessible and will be available to answer any questions you may have before the election and will also be available to hear any countyrelated concerns you may have after she is your county commissioner. Please say “yes” to hard work and dedication! Vote for Pat DeGagne-Rule, Commissioner, District Two. Lavena Snyder Cortez Via e-mail

Bulldogs fall short at 1A state Journal Staff REport A baseball team full of underclassmen and inexperience, Dove Creek still found itself in the 1A state tournament. However, with inexperience comes inconsistency. Six Dove Creek errors led to four runs for Elbert on Saturday at Thomas Jefferson High School in Denver. The Bulldogs of Dove Creek trailed the whole way and threatened with the bases loaded in the seventh, but only scored once. It wasn’t nearly enough in a 7-2 loss to Elbert. “We had a couple bad innings that hurt us defensively. That second inning, they got two runs when they shouldn’t have got any, because of our errors,” said 47th year Dove Creek coach, Ken Soper. “They only had three earned runs out of the seven. Our defense failed us a little bit. The game was actually closer than that.” Elbert (9-5) pitcher Quinn Franek won on the mound for his Bulldogs. He frustrated most of the Dove Creek (6-12) lineup. “Their pitcher was a little bit faster than what we were facing here. We were behind him most of the time,” Soper said. Freshman catcher Alex Ogas had an answer at the plate, going 3-for-3 with a RBI for Dove Creek. “He played his best game offensively and defensively,” said Soper about Ogas. Klancey Krafka, a junior,
batted 2-for-3 with a double. Senior second baseman Zoey Young recorded a RBIwalk. Tyler Ebberts played well at center field. “Tyler Ebberts was phenomenal in the outfield defensively,” Soper said about the junior. Although the season came to an end in Denver, the veteran coach feels his squad accomplished a lot this year. Dove Creek won a district title to advance to the state playoffs. “I’m still proud of the kids, going as far as they did. They gave it all they could,” he said. “I thought it was a great tribute to them, making it to the state tournament.” What does the future hold for Dove Creek baseball? It appears bright. Only three seniors graduate, two of which were starters. Also, the Dolores County School Board unanimously voted in favor to offer the head baseball coaching job to Soper for next year. The 74-year-old coach accepted. “I think Dove Creek baseball is coming back like it used to be. We have a good crop of freshmen coming in,” Soper said. “All the (San Juan Basin League) teams are going to be better next year. Every game is going to be a battle like this year.” NOTES: Elbert lost in the semifinals to Baca County, 16-0. Baca County will play Stratton for the 1A state championship on Saturday in Engelwood at 1 p.m.

Randy Elliott came in second in the discus with a heave of 106-6. All three throwers qualified for this weekend’s Colorado 4A State Track and Field Championships in Lakewood. Lingo is raked fifth young lady golfers (ages 7 and Heaton is seventh in to 17), who are interested in attending the junior golf clinic by golf professional, Micah Rudosky, on June 4-8.

my mind get to me, then I’m not a good thrower anymore. It’s nice knowing I’m in state. I definitely have a chance for top five. As a senior, it’s that one last thing. It just means so much to me.” Durango won the girls league championship with 161 points. Grand Junction and Fruita Monument were second (113) and third (98), while Montrose and Grand Junction Central were fifth (61) and sixth (38). Only a lightning delay derailed what was a well ran event. “I think it really went smooth,” Archibeque said. “A meet is only as good as your help. We had a lot of people come out and volunteer. I want to thank all the coaches, too, for being patient.” Other state qualifiers for M-CHS are girls Amanda Gallegos, Imari Black, Rachel Demby and Katelyn Muzzy in the 4x400-meter relay. The No. 17-ranked 4A team ran a exciting race that had fans on their feet, cheering at the top of their lungs. M-CHS runners filled their lungs with air, leading the race most of the way. Gallegos, in the anchor position, took the baton from Rachel Demby. The speedy junior took off maintaining the Lady Panthers comfortable lead. But Durango’s Dominique
Ward made a lot of ground on the first straight away. Coming around the third turn, Ward had caught Gallegos and the crowd cheered both runners on to the finish. But it was Ward who crossed the finish line first, clinching the title for Durango. The Lady Demons won the 4x400 in 4:10.12, edging M-CHS at 4:10.34. The Panthers placed sixth as a team. Grand Junction won the boys championship with 143 points. Nick Haukeness had a good day in his last sporting event for M-CHS. The senior took fifth in the 300-meter hurdles at 43.19. Haukeness decided to try the triple jump for the first time and leaped his way to a runner-up distance of 392.50. Jaron Carver raced to a sixth-place finish of 53.08 in the boys 400-meter dash. Fruita (117), Durango (102), Montrose (81) and Central (49) rounded out the top five boys team standings. The CHSAA Track and Field State Championships will run Thursday through Saturday at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood. Action begins at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.

Facebook IPO shares tough Grace’s kitchen needs cook’s helper task for small investors briefs
By DAVE CARPENTER
AP Personal Finance Writer CHICAGO — Hoping to get in on Facebook’s hotly anticipated public stock offering? You’ll need Facebook friends at very high levels — or a lot of money. Most people who like the idea of owning Facebook’s stock will have difficulty getting it at the offer price, currently expected at $28 to $35 a share. Unless you know the right people at Facebook, you’ll likely need to have a large, active account with one of the big banks or brokerage firms directly involved in the stock sale. Otherwise, you can take your chances by buying shares after the initial public offering is completed, when Facebook begins trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the ticker symbol “FB.” That’s likely to happen Friday. Doing it that way typically means paying much more for the stock, however. And heavy demand skews the early stock price, leaving an investor vulnerable to the risk of a big drop. Jerome Cleary isn’t deterred. One of a legion of Facebook fans, he has never wanted to own a stock as much as he wants to buy this one. Cleary, a standup comedian in Los Angeles, says he has already signed up for an account with a discount
online brokerage so he’ll be ready. “I know you should buy stock in what you know and like,” Cleary says. “I feel that because they have an incredible mass of wealth and such growing popularity, the stock really may pay off.” Facebook Inc.’s IPO is expected to be the largest ever for an Internet company. It’s expected to raise as much as $11.8 billion for Facebook and its early investors — far more than the $1.67 billion raised in Google Inc.’s 2004 IPO. Analysts say there’s so much interest in Facebook’s stock that some underwriters are closing their books as early as Tuesday. This means they won’t be taking any more orders from potential buyers. The IPO is expected to be completed late Thursday, with shares available for trading Friday. Scott Sweet, the owner of advisory firm IPOBoutique, says the high demand also means that Facebook might raise the per-share price above $35, the high end of the range Facebook currently expects. Facebook and the IPO’s lead underwriter, Morgan Stanley, declined to comment. If you’re thinking of investing in Facebook, here are some things to consider. ■■ IPO SHARES Facebook and its early investors are selling more than
337 million shares, but those shares are parceled out very carefully, away from the public’s eyes. Typically individuals get to buy no more than 10 percent to 20 percent of shares sold at an IPO’s offering price. The vast majority will go to company insiders, institutional investors, the underwriters selected by the company to handle the process and preferred clients of all of them. Morgan Stanley leads the team of 33 underwriters selected for the Facebook offering, followed by JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs. The inclusion of online broker E-Trade Financial Corp. as an underwriter was seen as a glimmer of hope that Facebook might make more shares available than usual for retail investors through discount brokerages. But chances of getting any are very slim regardless. ■■ ELIGIBILITY The big online brokerages have been taking formal requests from customers for Facebook’s IPO. They anticipate they’ll get their own allocations from one source or another, such as one of the underwriters. E-Trade, Fidelity Investments, Charles Schwab and TD Ameritrade, among others, have been fielding abundant queries. But the requirements they set on who gets them eliminate most small investors. Fidelity, which will be
getting an undetermined number of shares from underwriter Deutsche Bank, says customers should have $500,000 in their accounts and have made 36 trades in the past year to be eligible. Ameritrade’s account requirements are at least $250,000 and 30 trades in three months. Schwab’s are a minimum $100,000 or 36 trades in the past year, but the firm says it also has other requirements. E-Trade, as an underwriter, would not divulge specifics but acknowledged the customer interest. “It’s a pretty hot topic,” spokesman Brett Goodman said. Even meeting the requirements is no guarantee of getting shares. Joshua Freeman, an information technology professional in New York, knows investing in Facebook is risky, but he believes “it’s got a pretty good shot to make some money.” He has been investing with E-Trade since the mid-1990s and has about $200,000 in his account. But he’s pessimistic about his request for 100 Facebook shares at the IPO price, given the frenzy over the offering. “I’m hoping to get some but I’m guessing that I won’t,” Freeman says. “I’m hoping it follows the trend and goes crazy and then dips a little bit. If it does that, I may buy some on the open market.”
Wide range of businesses participate in hunt From Page 1A Each week, area newspapers will publish locations where treasure hunters can pick up new clues. The locations where treasure hunters can pick up the final clues will be published the week of June 11. Businesses will provide the clues until June 19, and the grand prize will “wash ashore” June 20. Newspapers as close as Cortez, Dolores, Mancos and Dove Creek — and as far away as Blanding and Monticello, Utah — are scheduled to run the clue pick-up locations, Waters said. “It’s going to run everywhere,” she said. Businesses participating in the Treasure of Cortez Treasure Hunt purchased the $1,000 in Cortez Cash from the Cortez Retail Enhancement Association, Alexander said. In turn, the retail association promoted the treasure hunt in area newspapers. Participants in the hunt are not required to purchase items from any of the businesses that serve as clue pick-up locations, but the hunt will help shoppers learn more about merchan-
dise and services ava i l ab l e at local businesses, Waters said. Treasure Gayel Alexander ers huntmust pick up 28 clues to solve the puzzle of where “X” marks the spot. The Treasure of Cortez will “wash ashore” June 20, and whoever finds it first wins. Instead of finding $1,000 in Cortez Cash, the grandprize winner must find an item at the designated location where all the clues lead. Then the winner needs to bring the item to Love on a Hanger, Waters said. “I can’t give away what the treasure (item) will be,” Waters said about revealing the item’s identity before the treasure hunt, “but they will have to bring that in to Love on a Hanger to get the $1,000 in Cortez Cash.” Secondary winners will be determined by drawing names from a pot, Waters said. Each time a treasure hunter picks up a clue at a local business, their name goes in the pot one time for the drawing.
Although treasure hunters need to pick up 28 clues and solve them to find the grand prize, people who pick up fewer than 28 clues can still win a secondary prize, Waters said. Each participant can win a maximum of one prize. “If you pick up five clues, your name will be in the pot five times,” she said. “If you pick up 28 clues, your name will be in the pot 28 times — but you can only win one prize.” Treasure hunt sponsors include a wide range of businesses, such as Citizen’s State Bank, Four States Tire, Netforce PC, Shiloh Steakhouse, Slavens True Value Hardware and The Family Shoe Store. Alexander said it’s too early to provide much feedback on the treasure hunt since it hasn’t started yet, but she hopes if it goes well this year more businesses will get involved in the future. “I’m excited she (Waters) got as many businesses to participate as she did,” Alex-
ander said. “I hope it’s successful and grows into a bigger event next year. I think it has potential.” Treasure hunters must be at least 16 years old to participate.

School bus route decision could save money From Page 1A
sions on whether to return. Another possible cut the school board is considering is changing from dual bus routes to single bus routes for students when the district returns to a five-day school week next school year. This would save about $150,000. If the board followed the district’s suggestions to the letter on expenses, adjustments for operating budgets and the ideas for cuts, the budget would end up being $8,700 in the black. However that was before a contingency item for two positions or for an emergency was included at a cost of $100,000. “You need a contingency for something that may happen,” Rubadeau said, and added if the district had to dip into these funds it would be transparent and would need board approval. Rubadeau said more work needs to be done on the budget, but added she likes the work that has already been completed. “I think we have done an enormous amount,” she said. “We have a good plan here. It has been provided to (the board) to see if it was OK. The budget is always a specialty plan.”
$6,161 from the state. Rubadeau said the Oct. 1 count date on the number of students attending school in Re-1 is crucial because this is where the bulk of the money comes from. To make some of this money up, the school board is considering reducing its administration team by a few people to save up to $115,000. The chief of operations for Re-1 is currently held by Michael Canzona who is resigning from the district at the end of June and his position will not be filled. Rubadeau said some reorganization of some jobs will be done to ensure that this position is still covered. She also said the district is looking at a grant to fund a special education position. In the possible ideas for cuts, adjusting positions for the elementary schools of Mesa, Kemper, Manaugh and Lewis Arriola, along with possibilities that positions will be adjusted at the middle school and the high school are on the table. Adjusting these positions at these schools would save Re-1 more than $500,000. Rubadeau said while the contracts for all teachers and staff will be handed out May Michael Maresh can be 22, there are still employees reached at michaelm@corwho are still making deci- tezjournal.com

Young cancer patients’ ‘Stronger’ video a big hit By MANUEL VALDES Associated Press SEATTLE — A video featuring cancer-stricken children, their nurses, doctors and parents lipsynching and dancing to the popular Kelly Clarkson song “Stronger” has become an online sensation. Clarkson, in her own video message to the children at Seattle Children’s Hospital, said it was “amazing.” “It made my day. I know it’s making everybody else’s day online,” Clarkson said in a message posted on her website. “I just can’t wait to meet you.” The youngsters, many attached to IVs and holding signs that say “Stronger,” “Fighter” and “Hope,” dance along with parents and medical staff. One child even rides a bike through the hallways of the hematology oncology floor. The video is part of a creative arts program with cancer patients at Se-
nosed with leukemia in April. He wanted to do something to share with his old hockey team in the central Washington town of Wenatchee “I’m everyone’s big brother and I have a lot of friends here at Seattle Children’s,” Rumble said on the hospital’s blog. Dr. Douglas Hawkins said the patients and staff at Seattle Children’s have been thrilled by the response. “This morning it was over 900,000 views. It’s really incredible,” he said Friday. Hawkins said such projects help the kids maintain their spirits. “When a child or young adult is treated for cancer, AP Photo/Matt Sayles, File it puts their whole life on hold in a way that doesn’t Singer Kelly Clarkson poses for a portrait in Los Angeles. seem fair at all,” Hawkins A video featuring cancer-stricken children, their nurses, doctors said. “It’s a fight for their and parents lip-synching and dancing to the popular Kelly Clark- life.

To be able to win it locally is a really good feeling.” Racing for Kokopelli Bike & Board in Cortez, Gregory avoided a couple of potentially damaging crashes to win comfortably by 25 minutes. “I almost had a big crash, but I saved it by grabbing onto a tree before I went over,” he said with a laugh. “Two laps ago (lap six), I saw the guy was 10 minutes behind. You get a flat (tire), he’ll pass you up. I was trying to put it down.” Gregory, who is Dani Gregory’s husband, will take his singlespeed Trek bike to the Bailey Hundo on Saturday, June 16, for his next competition. Kokopelli Bike & Board had another winner — in the female solo singlespeed class. A new resident of Durango, Cat Morrison rode the 12 Hours of Mesa Verde for the first time. It was a challenging, yet rewarding win. “I’m really happy that I won,” Morrison said. “It gets so much harder on those last (laps). After about three, literally, I was feeling, like, every bump.” The 38-year-old was the only one in her class to ride seven laps. She did it in 12:14.1 on her Voodoo singlespeed. Like the hundreds of other racers, Morrison plans to be back. “It’s a great course. It’s so fun,” she said. “It makes you realize and remember why

Proposed ordinance heads to council on May 22 From Page 1A
The council also discussed whether to allow caregiver operations in residential, commercial and/or industrial zones within the city. Lastly, the proposed ordinance makes it illegal under city code for nonlicensed individuals to possess, cultivate or sell marijuana. Green said this allows marijuana offenses to be handled in the lower municipal court system. The council recently approved an ordinance regarding medical marijuana retail centers, restricting the number of centers within the city to three. The proposed ordinance is set to go before the council for public hearing 7:30 p.m. May 22 at Cortez City Hall, 210 East Main St.

you’re out here. There’s moments of pain, but it’s fun competing on your bike.” Starting as a cross-country race 10 years ago, the event grew into a 12-hour endurance event four years later. In terms of maintaining the competition’s overall strength, 12 hours is where the race will stay. “Even though we could probably grow it huge, we would lose the quality and then we’d lose the race,” Dani Gregory said. Other solo winners were Mark Gouge (Littleton), solo geezer, 11:7:28; Paul Gorbold (Avon), solo male,
12:8:44; and, Jari Kirkland (Crested Butte), solo female, 11:7:21. Duo coed singlespeed winners were Kirby Bryant and Vic Rudolph (Durango), 12:15:21. Next year’s race is slated for May 11.

1965 when he took an interest in coin collecting. Going through his father’s pocket change became a daily ritual. That’s around the time when the government stopped using silver to make coins and started using the much cheaper clad. Harry was intrigued by the silver coins—they were colder to the touch than the newer clad coins and they sounded different when they clanked together. Harry thought these silver coins would eventually be taken out of circulation and may be worth something more than face value some day. He was right. Through the sixties and much of the seventies it was not uncommon to find these silver coins in pocket change. However, when they made their way back to the mint, they would be replaced with the newer clad coins. The silver coins would be melted down and gone forever. Harry accumulated quite a collection over the years. The silver coins he collected were not very rare—in fact, they were mostly heavily circulated and had common dates.

Cortez FFA qualifies 4 Teams for State
Students from the Cortez FFA Chapter attended the Western Slope FFA judging contests in Fruita, Colo., on April 18. Cortez was represented by four teams consisting of four members each at the contest. The teams were: meats judging, which placed second overall, horse judging, which placed fourth overall, agricultural sales, that also placed fourth overall and livestock judging, which placed tenth overall. In the meats judging contest the members take a written test, determine yield and quality grades on carcasses, place classes of cuts of meat, determine what species various cuts of meat are from, and identify retail cuts and what part of the animal the cut came from and how the cut should be cooked. The meats judging team members are: Jaycee Syra, Ryan Daves, Wiley Kirks, and Trenton Gustafson. The meats judging placed a close second behind Moffat County who won the contest. In the agricultural sales contest, the contestants pick or make a product to sell. The team members have to come up with a sales pitch and create some way that is catchy and effective to sell their product to the public. The day of the contest the agricultural sales team takes a written test and gives their sales pitch to a panel of judges whom they try to sell their product to in a mock sales call. The agricultural sales team worked closely with Geisinger Feed Grains to develop a sales pitch for cattle feed Geisinger’s has developed called ProRation. Agricultural Sales team includes: Lacey McDonald, Lana Robbins, and Cheyenne Henderson. In the livestock judging contest contestants place 10 classes that consist of market and breeding beef, sheep, swine, and goats. The livestock judges determine two classes of keep/cull animals, yield and quality grade live animals, give three sets of reasons and take a written test. Livestock judging team includes: Cheyenne Mortensen, Landan Wilson, Vanessa Gapp, Whitney Finley, and Chance Lambert. State rules only allow four members per team. The top four livestock judges who will represent Cortez at state are: Cheyenne Mortensen, Landan Wilson, Vanessa Gapp and Whitney Finley. Horse judging is similar to livestock judging, except instead of livestock they judge horses. The contestants judged three classes at the western slope contest. They judged two halter classes and one reining class. At the state contest they will judge four classes that can include Halter, Western Pleasure, and Hunter Under Saddle. After the Cortez judges judged the classes they gave one set of reasons about why they placed the class the way they did. Horse judging contestants include: Chantz Koskie, Elisabeth Hoch, Shelby Caughey, Shandra Fitchett, and Tyrell Sturman. Chantz Koskie, Elisabeth Hoch, Shandra Fitchett and Tyrell Sturman will represent that chapter at the state contest. All of the teams did a great job and represented the Cortez FFA chapter well. All four teams qualified to compete at the Colorado State CDE’S in Fort Collins on April 30, on the Colorado State University campus.
Southwestern Cowbelle scholarships awarded Southwestern Cowbelle Scholarship Awards were announced by Chairman Lisa Tozer at its April 17 meeting. Winners were: Chantz Koskie of Montezuma-Cortez High School, who will pursue a degree in animal science at the University of Wyoming. Kacey Schurr of Dolores High School will be majoring in agriculture communication at New Mexico State University. Each was awarded a $500 scholarship. Continuing students Kendra Cox of Mancos, who is attending Texas A&M, and Bailey Schurr of Dolores, who is attending New Mexico State University, were awarded $900 scholarships. They are both studying agriculture business. These one-time scholarships were made possible by the donation by the Merritt family from an older brand quilt to SWC, which was auctioned off. New SWC officers were also installed at the meeting: Beverly Humiston, president; Lisa Tozer, vice president; Sue McWilliams, treasurer; Keleigh Jeffcoat, secretary; Tammi Russell, historian; and reporter Anna Ruth Koppenhafer.

Food task force looking for production answers Agriculture research focuses on food producers surveys BY Michael Maresh Journal Staff Writer Spearheaded by LiveWell Montezuma, a food task force is being developed to assess local foods produced in the county. LiveWell Montezuma Coordinator JoDee Powers said some of the questions in the survey will focus on how easy it is to get fruits and vegetables in the surrounding community. She said there will be a multitude of questions residents will be asked to answer and will also try to find food producers or farmers on what they expect. The assessment is aimed toward finding the location of food producing farms, number of acres under production, crops produced including the amount and where sold, and barriers or potential for increased production, processing and distribution. The local food system assessment will also demonstrate the needs for storage, aggregation, distribution and commercial infrastructure to meet local production and demand as well as ways to increase economic development through agricultural production, processing, distribution, mar-
keting and sales. The assessment will also address food security issues residents face, including economic access to fresh, healthy and local foods and residents’ interests on awareness, demand and barriers to consuming and selling their product. Powers said the survey is focused on local foods that are produced in the surrounding area, whether that be lettuce, sprouts, spinach, eggs and any other food items produced in Montezuma and Dolores counties. Powers said that once a good number of residents complete the survey a report will be written to detail the situation of local foods in the county and to gauge where farmers and producers are looking to sell their food items. Powers said the next step is to hire an outside professional to get the surveys ready to go out to the residents. She said both surveys — one for consumers and one for producers — will be launched May 15, and she anticipates that it would take about two months to hand the surveys out and receive them back to compile the results.

She said they want to let people know that the input of both the producers and consumers is vital for the survey’s success. “We are trying to figure out a lot of stuff,” she said and added the hope is to get at least 1,000 surveys back from residents. Powers said the food task force has created 100 posters and are spinning them off from the Uncle Sam posters’ message of “We
want you.” “We want you to fill out the survey,” she said, adding the task force is still looking at mechanisms to determine what could work the best and mentioned one idea is to hand out the surveys in the most populated parking lots in the counties.

It’s a growing experience for Mancos gardener Organic farmer produces for School to Farm Project Jeanne Archambeault Mancos Times editor Lew Matis of Grasshopper Flats has his place on Road J, just west of Mancos, and is situated in a spot with great views of both Mesa Verde
and the La Plata Mountains. He’s tinkered with gardening for years, but started getting serious about growing things to sell about eight years ago. He moved to Mancos in 1984 and moved to this part of the Mancos Valley in 1994. He’s been a big help with the School to Farm Project that the Mancos and Dolores schools are a part of. He uses all organic methods on his farm, growing things that he likes to eat and that he thinks will sell. His rows are mostly in raised bed form, a method that he’s
changed to just recently. “It helps me focus on the soil more that way,” he said. He is better able to walk between the rows, spread mulch and use the broadfork on the soil. The broadfork that he likes to use is a tool with tines that works a lot like a shovel. After the soil has been worked up with a spade and fork, he uses it to loosen and lift the soil. But he only lifts the top three inches of the soil, moving the biota (plant life in this area) around that is on the top. “Gardening is an experi-
ment. I learn something new each year,” Matis said. His place is called Grasshopper Flats, a tongue-incheek name that he adopted about six years ago. “For about 2 1/2 summers we had a huge grasshopper infestation,” he said. “They were everywhere! I would come out here and count at least 30 per square yard. The extension agent said that you just have to have 15 to 18 grasshoppers per square yard to have an infestation!”

A black mark for survivor of financial crisis By PALLAVI GOGOI AP Business Writer NEW YORK — The reputation that Jamie Dimon honed for decades on Wall Street has been severely damaged in a matter of days. In the 1980s and 1990s, he was the protege of banking industry legend Sanford Weill. In the early 2000s, he took over Bank One, an institution few believed was fixable, and restored it to a profit. And in 2008 and 2009, at JPMorgan Chase, Dimon built a fortress strong enough to stay profitable during the financial crisis. His zeal for cost-cutting and perceived mastery of risk did more than keep JPMorgan strong enough to bail out two failing competitors, Bear Stearns and Washington Mutual. It gave him a kind of street cred during the post-crisis years, when he lashed out at regulators who sought to rein in banks, and Occupy Wall Street protesters who raged against them. Now all that is on the line. Dimon had to face stock analysts and reporters on Thursday and confess to a “flawed, complex, poorly reviewed, poorly executed and poorly monitored” trading strategy that lost a surprise $2 billion. The revelation caused traders to shave almost 10 percent off JPMorgan’s stock price the following day and brought a shower of complaints from industry observers and lawmakers who said banks needed tighter scrutiny. Making the black eye worse for Dimon, the loss came in derivatives trading, the complex financial maneuvering that — on a much greater scale — led to large losses and dissolved banks during the financial crisis. Dimon “staked so much of his reputation on creating this perception of being the ultimate, infallible risk manager,” said Simon Johnson, a former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund who is now a professor at MIT. “And along comes this huge mistake.” Dimon, 56, grew up in the Queens borough of New York City, the grandson of a Greek immigrant. His father was a stockbroker who worked for many years at Merrill Lynch. After college and business school, Dimon turned down an offer from the venerable investment bank Goldman Sachs. Weill had been Dimon’s father’s boss at a previous job and recruited the younger Dimon to American Express.

About 100 demonstrators march down a highway on May 14 as union organizers, clergy, students and others demonstrate at a Wal-Mart distribution center in Fontana, Calif. For years, the world’s largest retailer has tried to repair a reputation that’s been damaged by decades of criticism and legal troubles. In April 2012, allegations that Wal-Mart paid bribes to officials in Mexico threaten to derail Wal-Mart’s attempts to improve its image.
Wal-Mart’s reputation takes another beating By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO AP Retail Writer NEW YORK — In business, you’re only as good as your last good deed. Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, in recent years has tried to repair a reputation that’s been damaged by decades of criticism and legal troubles. Community activists have blamed it for damaging the neighborhoods where it builds its stores. Labor groups have lambasted it for not treating its workers well. And politicians have called it a poor steward of the environment. Wal-Mart has been doing things like offering employees better health care coverage and working with its suppliers to reduce environmental waste. Now, allegations that Wal-Mart paid millions of dollars in bribes to officials in Mexico threaten to derail its efforts. The accusations highlight how difficult it is for a company as big and powerful as Wal-Mart to dig itself out of a pile of bad publicity. As history shows, the discounter’s low-income customers continue to shop at the retailer even when it’s having image problems. But

the fallout from the latest accusations could become a distraction for the company at a time when it’s battling growing competition. The U.S. and Mexican governments reportedly are investigating the chain. Wal-Mart’s stock is down almost 5 percent since the allegations surfaced. The company and top executives are being sued by angry investors. And some shareholders are planning to vote against the re-election of several board members at Wal-Mart’s annual
meeting next month. “This is a devastating blow to their reputation,” says Jonathan Low, cofounder and partner of Predictiv, LLC, which advises corporations on their image although the firm declines to give examples because of confidentiality agreements. “This undercuts all the initiatives they made in many areas.” Wal-Mart says it has an ongoing investigation into the allegations, and it’s cooperating with federal authorities. In the meantime,
the retailer says it’s conducting business as usual. “We continue to focus on things customers care about like jobs, healthier foods, sustainability and workforce development,” says Steven Restivo, a Wal-Mart spokesman. “Our commitment won’t change.” NO STRANGER TO CONTROVERSY Wal-Mart wasn’t always the center of controversy.

Dairy farmers feel pinch Young cattle By PETER HARRIMAN Associated Press SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — After U.S. dairy farmers collectively lost about $10 billion in income in 2009, safeguarding the industry from another precipitous drop became a priority in the new farm bill. Milk prices in South Dakota fell as low as $10 a hundredweight in 2009 from a high of about $20 per hwt, according to Secretary of Agriculture Walt Bones. They since have rebounded to $16 per hwt. But the specter of market volatility continues to hang over the industry. “What is in existence now is what they call a safety net. My board basically says there is no
safety and there is no net. Anything new is better than what they have,” said Roger Scheibe, director of industry outreach for the Midwest Dairy Association. Maybe better, but just barely. While a new dairy proposal in the farm bill would pay farmers when the margin between their feed cost and the selling price of milk grows too narrow and would also give farmers the option to buy federally subsidized risk management insurance, farmers have to agree to limit production when milk prices fall below a specified level. The goal is to ensure an adequate milk supply but also to prevent price-dampening milk surpluses from developing.
In a state such as South Dakota, though, that is trying to build its dairy industry to reclaim export share, even by recruiting existing dairies from out of state, the concept of production limits is troubling. Scheibe said producers in the Midwest Dairy Association reluctantly agreed to endorse the new farm bill proposals only because participation in the program is voluntary for farmers and because the safety net that exists now is so inadequate. But Jon Davis, president and CEO of Davisco Food International that owns the Lake Norden Cheese Co., testified before a U.S. House Agriculture subcommittee April 26 and said the dairy title is anathema
rancher holds on to dream
to processors such as Davisco who seek to expand. “We’re ready to double our investment in Lake Norden,” Davis said. Other regional milk processors are similarly poised for growth, he claimed. But to accommodate that they need more cows producing more milk without the threat production will be slowed if milk prices dip too much. “Supply controls are not good for dairy, and certainly not for a state like South Dakota. We’ve got 90,000 cows, and we want 200,000 in the next five to seven years. We’re not going to do that if they put a cap on us,” he said. South Dakota now has 320 dairy farms milking 92,000 cows, according to Scheibe.
By BARRY SHLACHTER Fort Worth Star-Telegram ERA, Texas — Daniel Bowles is bucking a trend. He’s a young rancher trying to grow a cattle operation while many producers are hanging up their spurs or Craigslisting their all-terrain vehicles. It seems that many Texas mamas listened intently to Willie Nelson and didn’t let their babies grow up to be cowboys. But in Era, an unincorporated community in Cooke County just south of Gainesville, Bowles is following a dream he’s had so long he can’t remember ever not having it. A self-assured, snuffdipping 28-year-old, Bowles believes he’s the right kind of cattle producer at the right time. “He may never own 10,000 acres but Bowles finds every opportunity he can to build his empire,” said Stan Bevers, an agricultural economist with the Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Vernon. Bowles is not unique, but there just aren’t that many young producers like him replacing older retiring ranchers, Bevers said. Texas cattle country is in crisis. Prolonged drought, expensive feed and other factors reduced the state’s beef cow herd by 13 percent last year, leaving the nation’s biggest beef cattle state with the fewest breeding animals in more than half a century. It’s been a two-decade slide, with the decline sharply accelerating last year, said Ron Gill, an extension service cattle expert. That’s when 660,000 head disappeared from Texas, according to the U.S. Agriculture Department. They included carefully bred seed stock shipped as far north as Montana in search of literally greener pastures. Many more were sold to outof-state producers or sent to slaughter, their owners no longer able to provide water or forage. Spring rains have helped some pastures, but not all. And ranchers like Bowles, whose fields are full of freshbaled hay, say seasonal grasses that should be appearing now may be failing. As a result, some producers are no longer willing, or able, to restock. Some fields might take two years to recover. About 15 percent of ranchers surveyed last summer by the Fort Worth-based Texas & Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association said they were closing their operations despite high prices paid by feedlots and packinghouses. Another estimate put the figure at 25 percent. “Some of the smaller guys sold completely out,” said Rocky Vinson, an extension agent based in the West Texas town of Albany. The lucky ones convert their acreage to leased hunting operations or, if their land is accessible to a city, sell to a housing developer. Kevin Good, senior market
Bribery scandal thrust company into spotlight After it was founded in 1962, the retailer expanded by keeping costs down and selling items for less than competitors. The company now has more than 10,000 stores worldwide — many of which are the size of two football fields. But as WalMart grows, so does its troubles. Wal-Mart’s size has often made it a target. Critics, politicians and activists have portrayed it as a corporate behemoth that puts profits above its workers and the neighborhoods where it builds its stores. Anti-WalMart sentiment reached a fever pitch around the beginning of the century when several groups funded by labor unions formed to oppose the company. The groups have argued that Wal-Mart, the largest U.S. private employer with 1.4 million workers, doesn’t pay fair wages or provide adequate health care. They have said the company’s big-box stores are eyesores that crush small businesses and wreak havoc on traffic and commerce in local communities. They have complained that Wal-Mart hasn’t taken responsibility for its impact on the environment. And they have complained that the company buys too many goods overseas. The groups ran ad campaigns, toured around the country holding protests and tried to help organize workers. They attempted to block Wal-Mart from opening new stores in places like New York City even while competitors like Target were greeted with fanfare. Wal-Mart even was cited during the 2008 election by then-Democratic presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and John Edwards as an example of what’s wrong with big business. Then, in 2004, Wal-Mart was hit with what could have been the largest sex discrimination case in U.S. history. A group of 1.6 million female workers accused Wal-Mart of paying female workers less than male employees. Last year, the Supreme Court blocked
the suit. “Wal-Mart was battling one image problem after another,” says Daniel Diermeier, an expert in corporate crisis management and a professor at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. At the time, Wal-Mart acknowledged that the bad publicity was beginning to hurt its stock. Its shares fell 20 percent from early 2005 to an eight-year low of $42 two years later. Wal-Mart decided to try to reinvent itself. The company, based in Bentonville, Ark., tried to soften its image with shoppers by using the Great Recession as a way to bolster its position among its low-income shoppers. In 2007, it created a new slogan, “Save money, live better” to replace its long-time “Always Low Prices.” Wal-Mart, which like many big companies had been criticized for its large carbon footprint, also focused on what it could do to clean up the environment. For example, it worked with its expansive network of suppliers that include big Fortune 500 companies like consumer-products giants Procter & Gamble to reduce packaging. Additionally, Wal-Mart worked on its image with employees. It improved its health care plan and provided coverage to more workers. It started offering $4 prescription drugs. The company also broke with other big corporations and endorsed a mandate that requires employers to subsidize employee health care — a key part of President Obama’s health care overhaul. When it comes to healthier eating, Wal-Mart announced a plan to lower salts, fats and sugars in thousands of the products it sells. It also agreed to cut produce prices by 2015. To address its image with women, Wal-Mart last year rolled out sweeping measures that it says will help women around the world, including offering training of 60,000 women working in factories in places like India. It enlisted Secretary
of State Hillary Clinton, a former critic, for a project to help up to 55,000 women in Latin America and the Caribbean build businesses. DEJA VU Experts say the alleged bribery scandal, first reported by The New York Times last month, is stirring up new troubles for WalMart. The paper reported that Wal-Mart failed to notify law enforcement even after its own investigators found evidence of bribes funneled through its Mexican unit. If Wal-Mart is found to have violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which forbids U.S. companies from paying bribes to foreign officials, the company could face fines of hundreds of millions of dollars. Top Wal-Mart executives could lose their jobs or go to jail. The Washington Post recently reported that the U.S. Department of Justice has been conducting a criminal investigation since December. The Justice Department declined to comment. Two Democratic congressmen, Elijah Cummings of Maryland and Henry Waxman of California, also have launched an investigation. “A lot of the goodwill has been jeopardized,” says Rep. E. Cummings, (DMaryland), ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told The Associated Press. And Mexico’s government says it’s looking into the charges. President Felipe Calderon, who previously cited Wal-Mart’s growth in the country as one of his administration’s successes, says he’s “very angry” about the alleged bribery scandal. Investors are nervous, sending Wal-Mart’s shares down to around $59. That’s off about five percent from when news of the bribery scandal surfaced, but above the high $40s-range they were trading at during the recession. The California State Teachers’ Retirement System, one of the nation’s
largest pension plans, filed a lawsuit in Delaware against Wal-Mart, asking that any financial damages as a result of its leaders’ actions be returned to the company. It holds more than 5.3 million shares of Wal-Mart, or well under 1 percent of its shares. And leaders of New York City’s pension funds are planning to vote their 4.7 million company shares against five Wal-Mart directors up for re-election next month. “The bribery allegations are damaging,” New York City Comptroller John Liu said in a statement. “But reports of a widespread cover-up, involving Wal-Mart’s top executives, could have even more devastating consequences.” Meanwhile, some of the groups Wal-Mart has worked with say the scandal won’t harm their view of the company. “The (bribery) story doesn’t touch on our work with Wal-Mart,” said Jon Coifman, spokesman at The Environmental Defense Fund, an environmental nonprofit that has been working with Wal-Mart on a number of initiatives like reducing excess packaging from suppliers. “Nothing has changed so far.” It’s still unclear how WalMart shoppers will react. Robert Passikoff is president of Brand Keys Inc., a New York customer research firm that measures the image of companies using an index that rates them based on location and value, range of merchandise, store reputation and shopping experience. He says Wal-Mart consistently scores at about 90 on a scale of 1 to 100 on the index even during periods when its reputation is attacked. A rating of below 70 would mean it’s in trouble, he says. Historically, Passikoff says low-income Wal-Mart shoppers don’t care where they shop as long as the prices are low. Still, he says well-heeled Americans who often value corporate reputation have shopped elsewhere when Wal-Mart has had image problems.

analyst with Denver-based CattleFax, which collects and interprets industry data, believes that continued good cattle prices will eventually provide enough incentive to restock in Texas. Asked whether there could be a recovery in two years, he said, “Probably not.” “Will it ever be as big as it once was, say, in five or 10 years? No, but not anywhere,” he added. The 2007 Census of Agriculture put the average age of Texas ranchers and farmers at 59, while 6 percent were under 35. And many of the older cattlemen no longer want to weather the risky environment. “It was so devastating that a lot indicated that they are not going to fight it again,” Gill said. The latest census, state Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples said, “shows young farmers are becoming an endangered species. As today’s farmers and ranchers near retirement, we must find ways to support a younger generation that will be tasked with feeding a growing population.” Meanwhile, the high cost of land, cattle and feed, compounded by tight credit, create a formidable barrier to younger would-be ranchers building their first herds -- if they don’t have family land or hadn’t already left for urban careers like their siblings and classmates. The Texas Agriculture Department offers matching grants to young farmers and ranchers, which Staples said can help them get started or become more firmly established, but the grants are capped at $10,000, “With the cow herd at such a critically low level, Texas will start to lose infrastructure if cow numbers do not increase soon,” said Gill, who organized a series of daylong seminars around the state to attract new people to the industry as a way to reverse the trend. He was hoping to encourage innovative partnerships between retiring ranchers or landowners and a young generation of producers starting out. But the event planned for Graham was canceled for lack of interest and another in Abilene attracted people already in the industry, eager to hear how to safeguard their investment and livelihood. Bevers said the extension service had hoped to attract young Texans starting out with similar ambitions to Bowles’. A graduate of Texas Christian University’s ranch management program, Bowles in a few years has built a herd of 1,000 yearlings — mainly heifers, or young females, kept for six months, then sold — and a smaller cow-calf operation with 50 breeding cows of unknown bloodlines — “Heinz 57 kinds” — and a spotted Charolais bull. The French breed is known to produce good crosses. His calving rate is an enviable 90 percent, meaning 9 in 10 cows produce an offspring yearly. “If not, they’re out.”

Utah firm hopes to win NASA contract for new space system
Best crop for Matis is garlic From Page 1B Matis said the hopping bugs would eat plants and sometimes even the roots. “They really loved the onions! Anything green, they would eat. They just devastated stuff.” The whole neighborhood, he said, tried to get rid of them using biological control. But Matis, knowing that the bugs reproduce pretty quickly, would go out at night to his garden and kill many of them individually. Matis much prefers cover crops in most of his garden. They are there to cover the soil and protect it from the elements, such as wind, sun, etc. They are planted in late fall, he said, and he mostly uses winter rye, but there are eight other crops that he uses, mixed together. Grasses, broadleaf crops and legumes are all good cover crops, and some are shallow roots, some are medium and some are deep. They decrease the need for irrigation and help choke out the weeds. “I like to have the ground covered in winter.” His 7-year-old dog, Scamp, is Matis’ companion and loves to “help” him out around the farm. Matis’ biggest and best-selling crop is garlic, a fall plant. He has planted 1,700 garlic plants, which includes 10 varieties for market purposes, he said. After eight years at the Cortez Farmers Market, he knows what sells and what doesn’t. “I have lots of good, regular clientele there,” he said.
The garlic he grows is the hardy variety, because of where he is located in the Mancos Valley. Plus, he said, “the deer don’t eat it!” He waters about twice a week to begin with and then reduces it to once a week in about June. “That forces the garlic to start maturing,” he said. If he doesn’t sell all of the garlic he grows right after harvest, he can let it dry and it will be just as good. Matis already works two days a week at Crow Canyon and has for some time. He will also be working for the Galloping Goose Historical Society this summer. So, he won’t have a lot of time to spend in his garden this summer. “That’s why I’m really trying to get away from the major weeding by using cover crops,” he said. He also plants radishes, salad turnips, onions, tomatoes, winter squash and a few other things. He rotates crops, which is “so critical”, he said. His watering system is one that uses the T-tape in many of his rows, soaking the ground. But the hardest part of the whole farming thing, he said, is the succession planting that he likes to use, especially for things like lettuce and radishes - the things that have a quick growing period. And inside his house, he starts cucumbers, squash and cantaloupe that he’ll be putting out later in the year. “That’s the fun of it,” he said. “There’s so much to learn. It’s never boring!”
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – A leading aerospace company has unveiled plans for a new space system that could put NASA astronauts back in orbit by 2016 and create jobs in northern Utah. ATK is trying to land a contract with NASA or others for its new Liberty commercial space transportation system. Since ending the shuttle program last year, NASA depends on Russian rockets to get its astronauts to the space station. But the agency is looking for companies that can launch astronauts to the space station instead. ATK says the Liberty program would give the U.S. a new launch capability and end its dependence on Russia. Instead of building rock-
“In essence, our customers are people who want a ride into space or people who want to put cargo and satellites into space.” Joe Oliva ATK’s director of business development for Liberty et motors for NASA vehicles, the company would offer a complete system, including spacecraft, launch vehicle and mission operations. “Instead of supplying a component to their requirements, we’re offering the entire service,” said Joe Oliva, ATK’s director of
business development for Liberty. “In essence, our customers are people who want a ride into space or people who want to put cargo and satellites into space.” Kent Rominger, ATK vice president for the Liberty Launch Vehicle, said NASA is just one of its potential
customers. “We also want to carry cargo to the space station,” he said. “We want to offer rides to other nations.” ATK would be the prime contractor in a group of companies that would build the Liberty Launch Vehicle, top to bottom. “The entire vehicle will be managed and run from the prime in Utah,” Rominger said, adding it would mean about 300 jobs in Utah and possibly many more later if ATK wins the NASA contract. At the height of the space shuttle program in the 1990s, 8,000 people worked for ATK in Utah. By last year, there were only about 1,500 employees as the shuttle program wound down.

One Big Happy
Focus needs to be on the children
Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar
Dear Annie: My brother-in-law, “Travis,” has been in a relationship with his girlfriend, “Kristin,” for eight years. They now have two young children. Kristin has cheated on him too many times to count and continues to do so. They fight about it constantly. The problem is that Travis is so wrapped up in what Kristin is doing with various other men that both of them have put their children on the back burner. At the moment, the kids are living with Kristin’s parents. Kristin says the kids are the most important thing to her, but she definitely doesn’t show it. She’s only a mom when it’s convenient for her. And Travis is the same way. Travis is being treated for depression due to his relationship, but, Annie, he is never going to change her into the woman he wants. He refuses to leave her, saying he wants to keep his “family” together, but they are hardly together as it is. I don’t see how this is good for the kids. Travis isn’t innocent, either. He can’t keep a job because he would rather “babysit” Kristin. He is lazy and thinks the world owes him something. The two of them have tried counseling apart and together, but they never stick with it. As a family, we don’t know what to do. We’ve talked to Travis until we are blue in the face. Why can’t he see that this is a toxic relationship? How do we get him to care more about his children instead of their poor excuse for a mother? -- Worried Family Dear Worried: Travis and Kristin have a co-dependent relationship that is going nowhere. And it will continue until one of them decides he or she has had enough. You cannot make this happen. Instead, please concentrate on those kids. Neither parent is fit to raise them. Are Kristin’s parents providing a stable home life? Can you spend more time with the children, taking them out on weekends? Your goal should not be to provide Travis with a better marriage. It should be to help care for those children so they can grow up to be more mature than their parents. Dear Annie: My sister and I are estranged. Our father is in his 80s, and although I have no need to be friends with my sister, I would like us to be able to sit in the same room together for my father’s sake. I do not understand why we have never gelled. My sister says it’s because I am jealous of her. I feel we are on different planets. And if her expectation of our relationship is not met, she thinks we cannot have any relationship at all. I wish only the best for my sister, but whenever we get together, it is ugly. Should I continue to push for family time even though I don’t want to be alone with her? My father seems OK with things as they are, but I’m a parent now, too, and I would be devastated if this were the situation with my kids. -- No Family Time
Dear Family: We think your father would rather see you individually than watch things get “ugly” in front of him. Would you and your sister consider counseling together? Unless the two of you can work out some kind of detente for Dad’s sake, it might be best to leave things as they are. Dear Annie: I read with amusement the letter from “Santa Cruz,” the lesbian who objected to the way she was stared at in foreign restrooms. I have short hair, rarely wear makeup and have also been treated rudely abroad. It never occurred to me that it was an issue of sexual orientation, because I am straight. I assumed it was because I wear comfortable shoes, look people in the eye and act more assertively than women of that culture. Your advice to be polite and charming is spot on and works non-verbally, as well. -- Also from Santa Cruz
