School support Commitment to Excellence member seeks volunteers to lend teachers a hand BY BRIDGET MANLEY DAILY PRESS WRITER

JOSH BROWN, hatchery technician at the Rifle Falls State Fish Hatchery, attaches a hose Wednesday morning to the hatchery truck. The hose funneled about 200 rainbow trout into the frozen pond at Wyman Living History Museum in preparation for Saturday’s ice fishing derby, one of several events at the museum’s first Not-So-Winter Festival.

Fat flakes of snow fell Wednesday morning as a truck slowly lumbered to the pond below Wyman Living History Museum. It just arrived from the Rifle Falls State Fish Hatchery and contained an unusual cargo— about 200 rainbow trout that, with any luck, will end up on hooks Saturday during a free ice fishing derby for children ages 16 and younger. The derby is just one of the events slated for the museum’s

Other festival events include an antique snowmobile show, a chili cook-off hosted by Craig Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, a pond puck hockey game and a cardboard box sledding derby. Until recently, the weather seemed unwilling to deliver the usual snowfall of a Craig win-

ter. Museum staff tried to compensate by making their own snow, but the plan fell short, Boulger said. “It’s just been too warm,” she said. As a result, a freestyle snowmobile show scheduled for the festival was canceled and will have to wait for a snowier season. See FISH on page 10

Wyman Living History Museum gears up for annual winter festival Saturday BY BRIDGET MANLEY

Ann Marie Roberts, a local business owner and Maximum Commitment to Excellence member, believes community support and student achievement go handin-hand. If the community backs teachers and students, the latter “are going to want to be successful and they’re going to want to improve because they know … the community’s behind them,” said Roberts, who owns the Craig-based R & R Catering and Double Barrel Steakhouse in Hayden with her husband, Pat. She’s spearheading an effort to accomplish that goal by getting more volunteers into Moffat County School District classrooms. Roberts presented the idea Friday to the group, which is designed to augment and support

Betsy Nauman Cook was at the helm Tuesday of her first Craig/ Moffat Economic Development Partnership meeting since replacing Darcy Owens-Trask last month. In addition to addressing minor housekeeping issues, Cook said priority number one is moving into and opening the Marianna Raftopoulos One-Stop Business Incubator, which will be located at the Colorado Northwestern Community College bell tower. She believes moving her office into the incubator could happen as early as the end of next week, but a hard public opening is still at least a month away. In addition to prepping the new incubator for clients, Cook said now is an appropriate time to create a separate business incubator board. “I know there has been discussions about you all, as the EDP Board, being the same board that is handling the incubator,” Cook said. “I would strongly urge everyone that is not how we want to operate.” Although Cook was adamantly opposed to the EDP Board managing the business incubator, she was not opposed to some

Quotable: “As we begin to incubate busi“It is extremely important to nesses…or get to a point where me to maintain transparency.” we are hunting and begin offering Betsy Nauman Cook, director of the craig/Moffat Economic Development Partnership

EDP members serving on both. But, the idea received lukewarm support. “I was under the impression that for the time being the EDP Board would be (the incubator board),” Alisa Corey said. “I don’t understand why we need two separate boards and how having one board would reflect negatively on the EDP.” Because the EDP is registered as a 501 (c) 6 nonprofit organization and the business incubator is established as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, Cook said funding streams come from the city, the county, its business partnerships, donations and state grants. She argued if there is one board managing funds for two separate nonprofits, it could open the EDP and the incubator up to investigation. “It is extremely important to me to maintain transparency,” Cook said. “If we have the same board for the EDP and for the incubator it looks suspicious, it looks like there’s cronyism.

incentives, we really need everything to be perfect. We don’t want anyone pointing their finger at us and accusing us of doing anything wrong with their funds.” Board member Jennifer Riley sympathized with some board members’ disappointment because the incubator is the “EDP’s baby.” “I understand where you are coming from Alisa because this is the EDP’s thing,” Riley said. “But it does make sense for us to have some separation.” Cook added that although she is in favor of two boards, the EDP would not lose its influence over the incubator. It is her intention for the new board to serve in an advisory capacity and report to the EDP Board. “And you guys all know that synergy and energy come from having more people involved,” Cook said. “So why not get more people from the community involved in the incubator?” Members of the business incubator implementation team will be invited to join the advisory board before the EDP begins soliciting interest from the public, Cook said.

International intentions Saturday fundraiser to support MCHS, CMS students bound for Costa Rica

By BRIDGET MANLEY Daily Press writer

If there’s one thing Patty Hebert wants students to learn from an upcoming trip to Costa Rica, it’s that a big world waits to be explored. “I just hope they have an incredible cultural experience,” said Hebert, 43, a Moffat County School District substitute teacher. “I hope that they gain a love and a knowledge

of other cultures outside of Craig (and) outside the United States.” In early June, Hebert will lead three Moffat County High School students and two Craig Middle School eighth-graders on an excursion to the Central American country. The trip costs about $2,600 per student, and some participants have been working for more than a year to earn or save

the money, Hebert said. A fundraising dinner Saturday is designed to give them a boost. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion and features a taco bar complete with homemade beans, rice and sopaipillas. Tickets cost $30 for families, $10 for adults or $5 for children. The 10-day excursion, offered by EF Educational Tours, gives students a sampling of Costa Rica’s rich ecological diversity. The itinerary includes a visit to the Santa Elena cloud forest in the lush Monteverde region and a horseback trek up the Arenal volcano. Marissa Butler heard about the trip in fall 2011 and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go. “I think it would be fun, so I’m excited,” the MCHS freshman said. Her anticipation is understandable. Butler, 15, has lived her whole life in Craig and she’s itching to see what life is like in other parts of the world. “I’m looking forward to experiencing the culture (in Costa Rica),” she said. “It’s so differ-

Cattle theft case against rancher bound for Moffat County District Court By JERRY MARTIN Daily Press writer

A Moffat County rancher charged with violating state cattle statutes will be tried in Moffat County District Court. Monty Luke Pilgrim, 51, of Little Snake River, is charged with one count of theft exceeding $20,000, a Class 3 felony; nine counts of theft of cerMonty Pilgrim tain animals, a Class 4 felony; one count of concealing estrays, a Class 6 felony; and one count of wrongful branding, a Class 6 felony. In a preliminary hearing Monday, Moffat County Court Judge Sandra Gardner found probable cause for the theft

charge against Pilgrim, the only charge eligible for a preliminary hearing, and bound the case over to district court. He is scheduled for arraignment at 1 p.m. Feb. 29 in district court. A felony conviction could carry a penalty of probation, community corrections or prison, said Jon Pfeifer, Moffat County chief deputy district attorney, who is prosecuting the case. The presumptive prison sentence for a felony conviction in Colorado is four to 12 years for a Class 3 felony, two to six years for a Class 4 felony, and 12 to 18 months for a Class 6 felony. However, Pfeifer said it’s unlikely Pilgrim would receive a prison sentence if convicted based on having no criminal history. If guilty, Pfeifer said Pilgrim

may be required to provide restitution to other ranchers for lost revenue in addition to potential criminal penalties. According to an arrest affidavit filed in September 2011, authorities estimated the value of the stray livestock allegedly in Pilgrim’s possession at $68,000. Pilgrim turned himself into authorities in late September 2011 following a joint investigation by Moffat County Sheriff’s Office deputies and an inspector from the Department of Agriculture’s Brand Inspection Division that resulted in a warrant for his arrest. Pilgrim is represented by Steamboat Springs attorney Kristopher Hammond and Ed Nugent, of Grand Junction. Jerry Martin can be reached at 875-1790 or gmartin@craigdailypress.com

Police treatment of officer was unfair — part 1

Editor’s note: Robin Willis submitted the letter below. It exceeded the newspaper’s 500word limit on letters to the editor, so it’s being published in two parts, the second of which will appear in the Saturday Morning Press.

To the editor: I’ve found myself questioning the Craig Police Department a number of times over the past few years. Most recently, the police chief made not only the local newspaper but also news outside our area. What has really grabbed my attention, though, is the outcome of the situations. First, we have an officer who was arrested for domestic violence and made the paper the morning after he was detained before any court appearances. Charges were dismissed after new information came to light. I don’t condone any acts of domestic violence — there isn’t an excuse for it. What I find interesting, though, is the officer was then fired from his job because the whole thing reflected badly upon the department. Now, let’s jump to the most recent story involving the Craig Police Department. The police chief left a loaded firearm in a public restroom at the Moffat County Public Safety Center. The story didn’t air until a week after the event See Letters on page 7 Do you have a news tip for the Daily Press?

Littwin: Santorumentum vs. Mittsanity

Outhouse oddities and strange socializing By JANET SHERIDAN Special to the Daily Press

A

few years ago, Carol Jacobson, my deceased mentor and friend, showed me an old photograph of a three-hole outhouse that once served a family in rural Moffat County. I remember wondering why a family, isolated among uninhabited acres, Janet Sheridan would need a three-holer, and I’ve continued to fret about it. Two holes I can understand: one cut smaller so little children don’t slide away into muck and consternation. But three holes could only mean a get-together, and I don’t see pit toilet as a site for socializing. I remember the outhouses from my early childhood as small, utilitarian buildings that smelled bad, not at all appropriate for enjoying the company of others — never mind appetizers and drinks. I wonder where the owners of a three-holer, living on a homestead 50 miles from the nearest neighbor, found enough people for conversation and canasta? And surely anyone making the effort to visit would expect to be entertained in a more welcoming place than the outhouse. Outhouses were never part of my daily routine, but I vaguely remember my father banging and cursing as he con-

verted a small storage room to a bathroom in our Lake Shore home. My older siblings claim that finding their way through the torn-up room and loud trauma of Dad’s endless remodeling made them long for the abandoned outhouse. I also heard alarming stories from classmates about the outhouses that still dotted our rural community: midnight dashes for relief through snow drifted chin-high, and sobbing city cousins who refused to walk the scary night path where cows mooed and things moved. Arnie Olson, late for school, once told Mr. Ralphs that he missed the bus because he was studying the BB guns in the Sears catalogue his family kept in the outhouse for toilet paper; Rebecca Jensen’s Uncle Harold, sick from his vigorous celebrations of the New Year, vomited so forcefully that he launched his false teeth into the pit and had to go toothless until he could afford a new set. Halloween in Lake Shore meant toilet tipping: a favored occupation of the boys too old to trick-or-treat and too young to take a date to the Spook Alley Sock Hop. The activity puzzled me: who’d want to sneak through a muddy field on a cold October night, topple an outhouse, then flee the released odor and awakened owner? I suppose a heavier threeholer could have prevented this youthful prank, unless a Boy Scout troop was involved. I wonder if building an outhouse big enough for a party

was an early indicator of our current tendency to celebrate formerly unheralded events: When my grand niece lost her first tooth, her mom invited other toddlers over for ice cream and a viewing. Friends of mine hosted an empty-nest party when the last of their nine children left home, and I once received an invitation to a coming-out party for an acquaintance who’d had a face-lift. Can festivities for a defeated sinus infection be far behind? Perhaps we could throw a party when the vet says the family hamster will pull through, or when no family members have been featured on America’s Most Wanted. Think of the fun we could have making merry because Grandma found her glasses or little sister returned her library book on time. Perhaps food is to blame for our increased interest in partying. When celebrating, we eat things we normally wouldn’t. After all, we can’t offend the hostess by leaving the clam dip untouched or refusing the frothy drink topped with an umbrella. I’ve belonged to book clubs where the liveliest and lengthiest discussion doesn’t concern the books read, but the food provided. My mother-in-law belonged to a knitters group for half a century. Twenty-five years ago they stopped pretending and left their knitting home so they could spend their time talking and eating. And they’d stopped meeting in outhouses long before that.

Let’s begin with the (not that long ago) unthinkable: What happens if Mitt Romney loses in Michigan on Feb. 28? Seriously, what happens? I have put this question to all my favorite GOP insiders and, to a person, they have no answer. I’m not talking good answer. I’m saying they have no answer — if you don’t count eyes gone glassy, jaws gone slack and mumbled, not quite coherent words of a brokered convention. And yet, it’s not unthinkable any more. It’s merely unprocessable — if that’s a word — in the way that infinity or, say, Linsanity is unprocessable. But there it is, Rick Santorum leading the polls in Michigan. He’s slightly ahead nationally. He’s got Santorumentum, and unlike other GOP contenders, he’s neither doltish (Rick Perry) nor newtish (Newt Gingrich) nor possessed of any other obvious disqualifiers (being anti-contraception is apparently not a problem in a GOP primary). Everything changed after Santorum’s early-February trifecta when Romney assumed he didn’t have to actually compete to win. And so Santorum could well win in Michigan, despite a long list of reasons why he shouldn’t and why the smart money says he’s won’t. But how smart is the smart money these days -- and did anyone think to stash some of it in the Caymans, just in case? If Santorum does win, it would leave Romney, just one week ahead of Super Tuesday, having to explain how he lost the state in which he was born, where his dad was governor and in which no one else was even supposed to compete. Could he explain it and still explain how he’s the most electable candidate? Because if Romney is not obviously the most electable person in the Republican field, what exactly is he? To this point, Santorum has won three midwestern states. Michigan, with its large blue collar population, is the Midwest. And it’s also home, of course, to the auto industry. Mitt’s dad was president of American Motors, when there was an American Motors. But in 2008, Romney cleverly wrote a New York Times op-ed titled “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.” He argued that if Detroit got a government-sponsored bailout, “you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye.” Not only does that look, years later, a tad insensitive — Romney was actually arguing for an alternate way to save the industry -- but also that Romney, the turnaround whiz was, well, turned the See Littwin on page 7

LITTWIN: Santorum is no Goldwater FROM PAGE 6

wrong way. No wonder he put the family dog in the crate on top of the family car. We’ve heard for months about all the many Romney weaknesses, but you can sum up his problem with one statistic. On his fivethirtyeight.com blog, Nate Silver notes that through December Romney had raised only $6 million in small donations. Ron Paul had raised $16 million, Herman Cain $10 million, Newt $7 million. In other words, you don’t have to search far to find the measure of the Romney enthusiasm gap or to see that no one is ever likely to use the word Mittsanity. I’ve thought all along that this was the year the Republicans

would do something crazy, just because Obama has driven them crazy enough to to do it. And the Tea Party, despite some decidedly mixed results, had won often enough to make some forget the Christine O’Donnell and Sharron Angle debacles. I was sure that history pointed to a Goldwater year or a McGovern year in which the party fringes win and then get clobbered in November. But Santorum doesn’t lead a movement. He’s no Goldwater. He’s just a socially conservative ex-senator who lost his last race by 18 points and who has some peculiar ideas about our sex lives. He’s short of charisma (although he is likeable enough).

He’s got almost no money. He doesn’t even have a campaign headquarters. He needs someone to buy him a teleprompter or at least a better speech writer. He’s being outspent on Michigan TV by 29 to 1, and according to the Wall Street Journal, Gingrich Super PACer Sheldon Adelson is considering spending $10 million for antiSantorum ads. There’s a reason that Romney has been the front-runner all along. It’s that no one has yet stepped up to convincingly make the case otherwise. If Santorum wins in Michigan, that’s a pretty strong case. But would it make anyone believe that what comes next is a victory over Obama in November?

No harm in asking

By TONy BOHRER Pastor, aPostolic lighthouse church

I am personally kind of a dreamer. Sometimes I like to allow my mind to wonder a little bit and like a child begin to think of the impossible. As I begin to study the word of God I find more and more that when our prayers and dreams line up with God’s plan, the impossible can become possible. “But Jesus beheld [them], and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26). We understand that this scripture is talking about salvation. The question was just asked to Jesus “who can be

saved”. The scripture states a truth that all followers of Christ need to understand. There are certain things that are impossible with man but all things are Possible with God. Not some things but all things. How awesome is that? I know that doesn’t mean I am going to get whatever I want but it does mean that the God I serve has the ability to answer my prayer or dream. Do you remember a story in the Old Testament about a man named Joshua? Joshua was the man who led the children of Israel out of the wilderness and into the promise land. The thing I love about Joshua was he prayed one of the craziest prayers in the bible and God

answered it. Joshua asked God for the sun to stand still while he continued to fight against the Amorites (Joshua 10). Today if someone asks a question like this, people’s first answer would, “be this guy needs to go to school. The earth moves around the sun not the other way around.” Scientist would have laughed and told him this is impossible. What kind of audacity did Joshua have to ask God to preform such a crazy deed? The best part is God did it! God promised Joshua that he would fight for him and Joshua needed more time in the fight with the Amorites. My point is this today, is

there something in your life that you feel would be impossible for you to accomplish it on your own? Something that needs a helping hand, you have tried everything and it is still falling apart? It could be your marriage, addiction, finances or whatever. I know that God knows all about it. Maybe just maybe, he is waiting for you to ask for his help. I am not going to tell you today that if you will just ask God for help everything will be perfect. But I will tell you today that if you have the audacity to ask it, he has the ability to perform it. I do know that God wants to be a part of your life and goals, and when

DID YOU KNOW – True Love

Words and gifts of love abound this time of the year. But some hearts are broken because a loved one is gone, or has proved his or her love to be fickle. How can we know what true, lasting love is? Let’s get God’s definition. If you want to know what love is, look at what God did for you: “For God so loved the world (that includes you) that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever (that includes you) believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” – John 3:16. Love is primarily an action verb. God’s love for the whole world (including you) caused Him to rescue us from the result of our sin (death and hell) by sending His Son to take the penalty for the sins of the whole world (including yours.) God’s great, indescribable love for you compelled Him to pay the price to buy you back to Himself. “You were redeemed by the precious blood of Christ, as a lamb without blemish and without spot” – I Peter 1:19. The price has been paid, and there is nothing left for you to do except to believe it. “For by grace you are saved through faith (believing God’s promise) and that (salvation) not of yourselves; it is the gift of God – not of works, lest any man should boast” – Ephesians 2:8-9. Our love for each other is supposed to be like His love for us; it is primarily action. “My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth” – I John 3:18. It is easy to say “I love you.” It is real when you prove it by your actions, just as God did when He gave His Son for you.

you put him in the middle of what your doing the impossible becomes possible because of God. There is no prayer too big for God, no vision too sweeping, no risk too great. God has never been nervous about his ability to live up to your faith in him. The measure of God’s abilities will always surpass the measure of our audacity to ask. So I challenge you today to be like Joshua and pray a sun-stand-still prayer that will change your life and your situation. There is a good chance that your impossibility will become possible when you add God into the equation. The People of Yampa Valley Baptist Church invite you to learn more about God’s Good News by attending the service Sunday morning at 11:00. The church is located at 3900 E. Victory Way, on the old highway, just past the Electric Company.

DUMP THE DIP

Great American Spit Out urges chewing tobacco users to quit DAILY PRESS WRITER

Every so often, Rodney Kowach is reminded of the habit he gave up more than 15 years ago. “Today, I still smell a freshopened can of Copenhagen and you go, ‘Oh, that smells good,’ but I know better,” said Kowach, 47, a lifelong Craig resident. He tried to quit chewing tobacco at least four times before he finally succeeded, he said. His story isn’t an uncommon one. Chewing, like smoking, is a pernicious habit to kick, due largely to nicotine, the addictive substance that occurs naturally in tobacco, said Vicki Barron, a community health educator with the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association. Tobacco users of any stripe usually try six or seven times before they can wean themselves from the drug, she said. The Great American Spit Out on Feb. 23 urges new and veteran quitters to try to kick the habit for at least 24 hours. The event is part of Through With Chew Week, which takes place Feb. 19 through 25. Chewing tobacco predominantly is a male pastime in the U.S. An estimated 7 percent of adult men in America chew tobacco, compared to only 0.3 percent of women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website. Chew is the “tobacco of

Quotable: “If they try five times and they fail, they’re not a failure. They need to keep trying because it’s different for everybody.” Vicki Barron, Nurse Association community health educator, about encouraging chewing tobacco users to quit

choice” for teen boys and men in their early 20s, Barron said. Kowach fit into that demographic. He began chewing tobacco when he was 16, he said. Chewing tobacco is sometimes cast as the safer alternative to smoking, but the illusion hides a deadly reality. “A lot of people think that they’re not exposing others to smoke and they don’t realize how harmful it is and what’s in there,” Barron said. An average-sized dip of chew held in the mouth for 30 minutes packs as much nicotine as four cigarettes, the American Academy of Otolaryngology— Head and Neck Surgery reported on its website. That same pinch contains other noxious compounds, including radioactive Polonium 210, the poisons cyanide and arsenic, and cadmium, a toxic metal used in batteries and nuclear reactor shields, according to the website. Chewing tobacco carries health hazards, Barron said, including heart disease and circulatory problems. Longtime chew users can develop white, leathery patches in the mouth that could be a precursor to oral cancer. “There is a possibility that smokeless tobacco causes an

increase in pancreatic cancer which … is a very aggressive cancer,” she said. Chewing tobacco carries another ingredient: sugar, Barron said, and lots of it. “People don’t think about it,” she said. “…They don’t realize that it’s literally like putting sugar directly on your teeth, and it decays the teeth.” The hazard of chewing, along with its unsightly side effects, is one of the messages the VNA is trying to send as it encourages users to quit, Barron said. The other is persistence. “That’s one of the things we want people to understand,” she said. “If they try five times and they fail, they’re not a failure. They need to keep trying because it’s different for everybody. “…We want them to think, ‘Every time I try it’s another step closer to quitting.’” Kowach finally kicked the habit by gradually replacing real tobacco with an herbal look-alike, he said. He doesn’t regret it. He no longer worries about getting cancer or tooth decay, and he’s saved a sizable chunk of change since he stopped buying chewing tobacco, he said. His advice for avoiding the risks of chewing tobacco is simple.

Ways to quit The Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association suggests the following tips for people who are trying to quit chewing, smoking or using other kinds of tobacco. Get help: The Colorado QuitLine offers counseling over the phone and also can provide nicotine replacements and other aids. Ditch the spit can: Make chewing or smoking off-limits—both to yourself and others—in your home and vehicle. Throw away spit bottles, ashtrays and any other tobacco materials in your house or car. Take the gradual approach: Easing off nicotine may be easier than quitting cold turkey. Set a date to be completely smoke-free, then gradually reduce your tobacco use to meet that date. Write it down: Keep a journal of your goals to quit chewing or smoking, as well as what you plan to do after you quit. Also take note of the triggers that set off nicotine cravings and, more importantly, the reasons you want to quit.

FISH: Not-So-Winter Festival to offer ice fishing derby, free instruction from Page 1

Museum staff members weren’t about to call off the entire event, though. “The thought never crossed our minds,” Boulger said. Instead, “We just kind of rolled with it,” she said. She and Mike Swaro, Division of Wildlife district wildlife manager, watched Wednesday as a torrent of water and fish rushed down a collapsible hose connected to a spigot on the hatchery tank. Rainbow trout—most of them a foot or so in length— thrashed a moment on the pond’s snow-covered surface before disappearing into two freshly drilled holes in the ice. The fish have no problem surviving in the frigid water, said Swaro, who will help introduce

heading into the second. Stewart (27-16) started the second period on top and thwarted Donkle’s early attempts for an escape, but the Windsor grappler’s strength again was the difference, as he got back to his feet 30 seconds into the period. Stewart got two more escapes before finally being turned to his back. “When he would take me down and let me escape, I had to be tough and try and show him I wasn’t there to fool around,” Stewart said. “He was the No. 2 seed, but I didn’t think about that because you have to beat the best to be the best. I just couldn’t get anything going.” Roman Gutierrez, the MCHS varsity wrestling team’s head coach, said Donkle was just more aggressive on his feet. “(Donkle) was really, really aggressive and hacked on (Stewart’s) neck a little to wear him down,” he said. “More or less, he controlled the match and we tried to get in a carry, but Garrett had some technical problems getting in control.” Stewart, the Bulldogs lone wrestler to advance to the state tournament, said when going against a stronger opponent, the key is to try and catch him off guard. At some point, Gutierrez said Stewart just had to go for it. “Garrett didn’t control the match at all and he wasn’t able to get a good shot in,” he said. “But, you have to get a

said. “The freshmen can only run about two, but varsity has a lot more. “With the freshmen, you have to keep things simple, but the varsity players had a greater multitude of things they were capable of doing.” Yoast said Ray worked up the Delta game plan before he left, and for the most part, Yoast stuck to it. The defensive scheme stayed basically the same, but Yoast said he made some offensive adjustments once the game got going. “On defense, the girls did what they had to with getting their hands up and not giving up easy shots,” he said. “On offense, though, I had to tweak the attack zone for what would work. They knew everything from punching it into the post to kicking it out, but we had to move things around throughout

the game.” Senior Annie Sadvar said all the varsity players played for Yoast when they were freshmen, so they knew what to expect. It was “nerve racking” not to have Ray on the sideline, Sadvar said, but Yoast kept players grounded. “(Yoast) kind of did his own thing mixed with what Matt had coached us,” she said. “He was chill, and even when the game was tight, he was relaxed because he coaches in a calm style while Matt may have been more panicked.” MCHS, Delta and Glenwood each have two league losses following the Bulldogs victory over Glenwood on Tuesday. Ray said the Bulldogs wouldn’t be vying for a second straight piece of the league title today without Yoast’s contributions. “It is phenomenal what they were able to do and it says a lot about the team,” he said of

the weekend victories. “It wasn’t what anyone wanted to happen, but they overcame adversity and went into (Delta’s) house and took a huge step as a team.” Yoast said he enjoyed the experience, but he is happy sticking with his freshmen team. As a science teacher at Craig Middle School, he said he is best in the positions he has now. “I told Matt he couldn’t get sick or leave because I’m happy to work in the background,” he said. “When the JV job opened up this season, I told Matt I wanted to stay with the freshmen. I think I serve as a good bridge from knowing these kids in middle school and helping them in their move to being freshmen. “I am glad I got the opportunity, but I’d like to stick with the freshmen.” Joshua Gordon can be reached at 875-1795 or at joshgordon@ craigdailypress.com.

MCHS basketball teams wrap up regular season in Steamboat BY JOSHUA GORDON DAILY PRESS WRITER

It’s a different season, but the Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team finds itself in a similar predicament as last season. With a regular-season finale against Steamboat Springs looming, a share of the Western Slope League title and a higher seed in the 4A state playoffs are on the line. A year ago, the Bulldogs took care of Steamboat at home to share the league title with Delta and Glenwood Springs and earn a No. 17 seed in the playoffs. On Friday, the Bulldogs battle the league-rival Sailors in Steamboat. However, with the playoff bracket expanding from 32 teams to 48 this season, the stakes may be even higher this year with a first-round by on the line, head coach Matt Ray said “Every year is different, but we know what we have to do to be successful,” Ray said. “The whole situation is similar to last year and we have been down this road before, so we know we have to win to be where we want to be.” The Bulldogs (16-6 overall, 9-2 WSL) beat Glenwood on Tuesday

MCHS boys basketball looks to upset rival to force a three-way tie atop the Sailors league between Moffat County, Glenwood and Delta. Delta won their final game of the season Tuesday to guarantee at least a share of the league title. Glenwood plays a 6-16 Eagle Valley squad on Friday. Ray said both the league title and the higher seed in the playoffs are of the utmost priority for the Bulldogs. “Both are pretty important, so if we lose we are in a bad situation,” he said. “If we can beat a big rival in Steamboat, we can get a better seed and win a share of the league title.” Defensively, Ray said if the girls play fundamental defense they should do fine against the Sailors (12-9 overall, 6-5 WSL). On the offensive side of the ball, he said the girls need to stay patient and not force anything. “Steamboat plays a basic 1-3-1 zone, so we just need to be patient,” he said. “We need to

It took the MCHS boys varsity basketball players some time to hit their stride, but on Tuesday in their home finale the Bulldogs fired on all cylinders in a 78-56 victory over Glenwood. The Bulldogs (6-15 overall, 3-8 WSL) prepare for their final game of the season Friday in Steamboat Springs, and head coach Eric Hamilton said his team has the momentum. “I wish the Steamboat game was right after the Glenwood game so we wouldn’t lose any momentum,” Hamilton said. “But the rest will be good and we can talk about what we need to do. The guys definitely got a huge confidence builder from the Glenwood win, and every guy knows what this team is capable of.” In the first match-up of the two rivals, Steamboat (7-14 overall, 4-7 WSL) won the game in the paint, where senior Jake Miller scored 17 points en route to a 54-32 victory

for the Sailors. Hamilton said the Bulldogs would need to find a way to slow Miller if they want to stay in the game. “Miller is strong and he hustles, so we need to play better post defense down in the lane,” he said. “I think Miller is definitely their go-to guy, but they can also shoot the 3-pointer. We need to force turnovers and turn those into points.” Since the first game Jan. 24, Hamilton said the Bulldogs

have improved tremendously on defense. With neither team likely to advance to the playoffs, Friday’s match-up will be for bragging rights until next season. “We have really buckled down on defense and against Glenwood, we slowed their best player,” Hamilton said. “We have made great strides over the last few weeks and we are going to have to make (Steamboat) work for their points.”

In August 2011, a highly decorated World War II veteran was moving out of his apartment at Sunset Meadows and back to his ranch in Hamilton. But when Ray Wagner, 87, arrived at his home there was no electricity. In fact, the electrical box had been disconnected and the power line pole, which routed electricity to the home, shop and wellhouse had been chopped down and removed. On Jan. 23, Wagner’s son, Jay, filed a civil complaint and jury demand against YVEA in Moffat County District Court. The complaint was served by Ralph A. Cantafio, a Steamboat Springs attorney who is representing the Wagners. In the complaint, the Wagners contend YVEA with removing electrical equipment from the family ranch at 274 Moffat County Road 39 without prior notification and utilizing the equipment for another YVEA member. “They are fairly outraged that Yampa Valley Electric would come onto the property without any notice,” Cantafio said. “It’s pretty clear from talking with representatives of Yampa Valley Electric (Association) that they didn’t provide any notice. They just came out and took these things. “It’s going to be an interesting case.” The complaint outlines four causes of action and contends YVEA trespassed and committed unjust enrichment, civil theft and conversion. A trial has not been scheduled nor has a presiding judge

RAY WAGNER, 87, stands beside a disconnected electrical box and chopped utility pole in Sept. 2011 at his ranch in Hamilton. Wagner contends Yampa Valley Electric Association unlawfully removed the electrical service from his home, shop and wellhouse. His son, Jay, filed a lawsuit against YVEA last month in Moffat County District Court.

been named, according to court records. In civil cases a defendant has an opportunity to answer the complaint before it is sent to trial. “Their (YVEA’s) lawyers in Denver are in the midst of capturing the file and answering the complaint as we speak,” Cantafio said. Although the complaint contends the value of the Wagner ranch has been adversely effected as a result of YVEA’s actions, Jay says the lawsuit is not about money. “It’s unfortunate we had to go to these extremes, but I strongly feel that they came in and stole from me,” Jay said. “This certainly is not a situation of my choosing, this is an issue of principle.” Prior to serving YVEA with the lawsuit, Jay said the utility corporation had been eager to settle with him and submitted two proposals to install new equipment at the ranch. As a caveat, YVEA wanted Jay to sign a contract stating they could remove the equipment again if the service went idle. However, Jay said the equipment YVEA pledged it would replace

is not of the same quality as what the utility corporation removed in August. Jay countered with his own proposal, which stated he would accept the new equipment if YVEA would discontinue its practice of removing electrical service from idle customers. YVEA denied the counter proposal, Jay said. “They’ve been stealing other people’s property and they’re devaluing people’s real estate,” Jay said. “My proposal had a principle clause that would forbid them from doing this again to anyone, but they won’t bend on that.” Jim Chappell, manager of consumer accounts for YVEA, denied to comment on the lawsuit Thursday. However, Jay said the lines of communication have been positive. “They’re definitely not accepting any liability or any responsibility for the devalue of my property, but at least they’re talking to us” Jay said. “Hopefully in time they’ll change their policy of taking people’s electrical equipment.”

Post office: $18B loss without cuts, rate increase Inc. It reiterates many of the mail agency’s proposals to switch to a five-day delivery schedule, raise stamp prices and close up to 252 mail-processing centers and 3,700 local post offices. The Postal Service has already asked Congress for permission to make service cuts and reduce annual payments of about $5.5 billion to prefund retiree health benefits. But in recent weeks, the Senate and House have stalled as lawmakers differ widely on costs, the level of financial oversight and the prospect of widespread postal closures.

Mired in red ink, the U.S. Postal Service is warning it will lose as much as $18.2 billion a year by 2015 unless Congress grants it new leeway to eliminate Saturday delivery, slow first-class mail by one day and raise the price of a postage stamp by as much as 5 cents.

Does it feel like prices are going up? The Labor Department's report today on consumer prices will likely do little to counteract that feeling. Economists are anticipating that the consumer price index rose 0.3 percent in January after smaller increases the previous two months. Look for so-called "core" prices, which exclude volatile food and gas costs, to have risen last month by 0.2 percent.

On Thursday, Donahoe said the mail agency’s proposals would enable it to save $20 billion a year by 2015, repay its $12.9 billion debt to the Treasury and return to profitability. The plan, for instance, notes that if the post office could raise current stamp prices from 45 cents to 50 cents, either in a single year or over a multiyear period, it could bring in new revenue of roughly $1 billion. In contrast, congressional inaction would result in significant annual losses and a “long-term burden to the American taxpayer.”

The Conference Board reports today its index of leading economic indicators for January. The index is a gauge of future economic activity. It rose the last three months of 2011. Economists are anticipating another gain for January, which would show that the economy has continued gaining strength this year. The indicators include readings on consumer expectations, employment and housing permits.

increase stamp prices above the rate of inflation. Since 2006, the Postal Service has increased the price of the stamp four times, from 39 cents to 45 cents. “Clearly, we’re underpriced in that area,” Corbett said. “We would like the ability to move that price up.”

Refromed ex-convict sacked by new CEO Dear Annie: After eight years at my job, I was let go. I have a felony record. The CEO who knew of my background retired last year. He felt I had proved myself and had ANNIE’S no problem MAILBOX with me. When he retired, we got an interim CEO. I told him about my record as soon as he came on board. Today, he decided our company would have a zerotolerance policy for any criminal records, so I Kathy and Marcy was fired. Annie, I voluntarily told my supervisors of my conviction. I worked hard to show that I had overcome my record. Was this a fair thing for the temporary CEO to do? Shouldn’t I have been “grandfathered” in? I was told if I kept to the straight and narrow, I would be fine. I have not done one thing out of line and don’t plan to. My conviction was more than eight years ago. But apparently, my honesty didn’t pay off. No one forgives. No one believes me. I am devastated. What can I do? — Think I’m a Good Person Dear Good Person: If a company fires you because of your race, sexual preference, gender or religion, you would be able to sue them for wrongful termination. If the zero-

tolerance policy was implemented solely to skirt around one of the reasons listed above, you might have a case. Otherwise, there doesn’t seem to be much recourse, although you could consult an attorney. Please know that your eightyear record as an exemplary employee should help you land another job at a more tolerant company. Also contact the Safer Foundation (saferfoundation.org) for suggestions and assistance. Dear Annie: The letter from “Put Out in Peoria,” whose family members boycott one another’s weddings, is a sad but classic example of the many petty family feuds that make their way into your column. Everyone has flaws, and family members hurt one another’s feelings, usually unintentionally, perhaps because of conflicts or envy going all the way back to childhood. Bad behavior and selfishness should not be condoned. However, I’d like to suggest that anyone who is fuming about her young children not being invited to a wedding or about her cousin’s claiming Grandma’s garnet ring that was promised to her should pause to consider all the real suffering there is in the world — such as the person down the block with terminal cancer or the friend whose child was killed by a drunk driver. Just grow up and get over it. — Rude in Redway, Calif.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Regardless of where you’re at or what you’re doing, be content with your situation. If you display a desire to be elsewhere, it will have an effect on how others feel about you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — When involved with friends who are generous and considerate, be sure to unlock your wallet as best you can. If you don’t, the contrast will make you look like a skinflint. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Relax and just be yourself because, unfortunately, any form of pretense could make you look phony and would produce the opposite effect of the one you are trying to make. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If you allow your emotions to gain the upper hand, they are likely to affect your ability to evaluate certain situations in a meaningful manner. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Usually you’re not the type of person who tends to nurse grudges, yet you might have a difficult time being around someone whom you feel treated you badly. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Be cognizant of what you say and how you behave. You could unintentionally do something or use words that will make you look rudely disinterested in what others say or do.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — All you may want is to be helpful, but a friend might consider any unsolicited suggestions on your behalf to be uncouth criticism. Be sure your pal wants an honest assessment of his or her work. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Lending money or something of value to someone who, time after time, fails to return what he or she borrows could be a pretty dopey thing to do. If you get taken, it’ll be your own fault. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Even if it’s inconvenient for you, stand by your word. If you break a promise you made, someone who holds you in high esteem will be severely disappointed. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Strive to be discerning of the job you’re doing, especially if you consider it to be a work of art. Your normally excellent taste might not be up to the job’s demands. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Be sure your purse can withstand any extravagant splurges you subject it to. Once you empty it, it might take quite a while to replenish. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Whether you be flitting through the social sphere or merely taking care of business at work, be on your best behavior when placed in a highly visible position. Antisocial actions always mar one’s image.

CMS girls hoops take districts Seventh-, eighthgrade A-teams finish undefeated By ANDY BOCKELMAN FOR THE DAILY PRESS

Craig Middle School seventhgrader Sidney Ferguson found herself in the right place at the right time Saturday afternoon in Meeker. The place: close enough to her team’s hoop to snag a rebound and toss it in the basket. The time: less than a minute to play in the district basketball tournament. Ferguson’s jump shot, which she attributed to more luck than anything, put her team up 32-31 in the final game of the Bulldogs’ season to claim first place in the tourney, one of many victories of the day. Both CMS’s seventh- and eighth girls A-teams won their brackets in the district tournament. Both squads also complet-

ed an undefeated season, 13-0 for the seventh-graders and 12-0 for eighth-grade. Eighth-grade coach Alicia Townsend said her group of girls did very well under the pressure of maintaining a season without losses, as did the 6-3 B-team, who also won the tournament. “B-team really came out, turned it on and did everything we were trying to teach them all season,” she said. “Both teams were just great on offense and defense.” The eighth-graders defeated Steamboat Springs 51-18 to win the final game of the tournament after a much closer 35-12 match against Meeker. “The first game we weren’t really awake, but after that we were playing a lot better together as a team,” eighth-grader Morgan Lawton said. Lawton said she and her teammates were excited about the win but even more excited about the fact that it was a repeat of their win at districts in 2011 as seventhgraders. Craig’s only loss of the tour-

Results ... Results from CMS girls basketball district tournament Seventh-grade A-team: 1st Season record: 13-0 Eighth-grade A-team: 1st Season record: 12-0 Seventh-grade B-team: 2nd Season record: 3-6 Eighth-grade B-team: 1st Season record: 6-3

nament was the seventh-grade B-team, which fell to Steamboat despite players from the eighthgrade team filling in some slots. The A-team experienced two of its closest games of the season in the tournament, taking on challengers who knew how to adjust to their skill set. “We played Meeker first and that was 39-28, and then we played Rangely for the championship and we won by one point, 32-31,” coach Candi Hellander said. “Rangely has a good team and a good coach and never gave up. They were always putting on the pressure and trying to force turnovers. Sidney Ferguson was

filling in for Mattie Jo Duzik and put in a great little shot to win it for us.” Ferguson said teammate Alex Hamilton provided her the chance to win the game. “Alex went in for a layup and missed it, and I caught the rebound, so I just shot it and it went in,” she said. “The best part of it was just everybody being so excited.” For Hamilton, the most exciting part was in facing the biggest challenges of the season. “The game against Rangely was just so close, and they were playing really intense and they had definitely improved,” she said. Hamilton and teammate Josey King said despite the perfect season, there is still plenty to build on for next year, such as crashing the boards consistently. “We really need to work the ball a lot more, too,” King said. Hellander said she expects another good season as her team moves on to eighth-grade, but she hopes to round out the roster a little.

“We finished the season with only 15 girls, so I hope we’re able to have a little more in number next year,” she said. “I think they’ll do well, even though we have some tough teams. We’re not very tall, but maybe they’ll get some more height and eat a little more over the summer.” Townsend will be saying farewell to her team as they make the transition to high school hoops starting this fall. “They’ve already done some drills with Matt Ray, so they know what to expect for a high school offense and that’s what they’ve already been running,” she said. “I know they’re all going to do great. They’ll be going to camps in the summer and as long as they work hard, they’re going to go far.” Lawton said she is looking forward to the basketball program at Moffat County High School. “We’ll be playing with people who have a lot of experience, and we’ll really be able to learn from them,” she said.

1st-round woes Garrett Stewart falls in first round at state, drops to consolation bracket BY JOSHUA GORDON DAILY PRESS WRITER

MARY AUSTIN/DAILY PRESS

COACH NORM YOAST, MCHS freshman girls basketball coach and assistant varsity coach, stands in front of the Moffat County High School freshman girls basketball team on Thursday during practice. Yoast recently filled in for varsity coach Matt Ray, guiding the team to two straight victories.

SUB FROM THE SIDELINES In head coach’s absence, Norm Yoast guided Bulldogs to two key wins BY JOSHUA GORDON DAILY PRESS WRITER

Last week, Matt Ray received news that required him to put his coaching job on the back burner. Ray, head coach of the Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team, learned his mother-in-law had died. The Bulldogs had a big game coming up in Delta with a chance to take a step closer to a share of the league title. However, Ray’s family took precedence and he had to leave town. In stepped Norm Yoast, regularly the MCHS girls freshmen basketball coach, to take the helm of the varsity. “Norm was my first choice,” Ray said. “We have been together since he took over the freshmen coaching job and he knows the system pretty well. “He is the freshmen coach and I am the varsity coach, but

Quotable: “It felt great to get the two wins for these girls who work so hard. Matt and the girls put in so much time and work hard, so I was happy I was able to contribute to this team.” Norm Yoast Moffat County High School girls freshmen basketball coach, about stepping in as MCHS girls varsity coach over the weekend

I think of us as co-coaches and this is our program.” Yoast has 21 years of basketball coaching experience across Colorado, but he’s never coached a varsity team. Still, he felt confident stepping in for Ray. “I had no second thoughts because I have worked with Matt long enough to know what he does,” Yoast said. “I had watched enough film on Delta that I knew what they were going to do and the girls put in the work during the week to know what Matt wanted them to do.” The Bulldogs lost to Delta at home earlier in the season and

needed a road win to have a chance to force a three-way tie atop the Western Slope League. Yoast and the Bulldogs delivered, etching out a 61-60 victory with a last second lay-up from senior Melissa Camilletti. The next day, the Bulldogs went into Palisade and left with a 48-36 win, again with Yoast in charge. “It felt great to get the two wins for these girls who work so hard,” Yoast said. “Matt and the girls put in so much time and work hard, so I was happy I was able to contribute to this team.” In the Delta game, the Panthers took a one-point lead

with 8 seconds remaining and Yoast called a timeout to draw up a play. Camilletti said the original plan was to get the ball inbounds to her and draw a foul. The officials didn’t make the call, so Camilletti drove to the bucket. “I tried to go hard and thought (Delta) would stop me and foul,” she said. “There was some reaching, but no call, so I started to panic a little bit, but when it is happening that fast, you don’t have time to think, you just go. As soon as the ball left my hand, the buzzer went off.” Working with varsity players, Yoast said he had more options than he typically does with his freshmen on the inbound call. “I think one of the main things different about the varsity was they have a lot more options for inbound plays,” he See YOAST on page 12

Garrett Stewart went into Thursday’s first round of the 4A state wrestling tournament at the Pepsi Center in Denver as the underdog. Stewart, a Moffat County High School junior, was matched up against the No. 2 seed in the 138-pound bracket, Josh Donkle of Windsor. Donkle took control of the match early and wrestled Stewart like he knew he had the win, letting Stewart escape without resistance after almost every takedown. Despite trying time and again to get a takedown, Stewart couldn’t overcome the stronger Donkle, as the Windsor senior scored a pin with 12 seconds remaining in the second period. “I didn’t wrestle very good,” Stewart said. “He had strength and he was quick on his feet. I was in a lot of awkward positions and I just had to try and scramble out of it.” Donkle (42-5) gave up four escapes to Stewart in the first round, but still led, 10-4, See WRESTLING on page 12
