Correction The Routt County Board of Commissioners did not receive a letter from Sheriff Gary Wall’s attorneys until Monday morning. Thus, there was no letter for the commissioners to refuse to release. The receipt of the letter and the county’s willingness to disclose it were reported incorrectly in the “Wall fights pay cuts” story on page 1 of Monday’s Steamboat Today.

Layoffs now appear inevitable for some Routt County government workers. County employees can expect to have a clearer picture of their job security by the middle of next month. On Monday, the Routt County Board of Commissioners acknowledged that it will be difficult to achieve needed budget cuts without a reduction in work force. “Sixty-five percent of our budget is personnel. We would be unrealistic to think we’ll be able to reduce operational budgets to meet what we need to be at by the time we need to do our 2010 budget” without a reduction in work force, Commissioner Nancy Stahoviak said. The county has about 285 full-time-equivalent positions. According to previous estimates, the elimination of 19 positions would reduce county personnel expenses by a minimum of $695,400. The commissioners will alert county employees this week that they can expect their department heads to have a set of criteria by May 15 that would

ou don’t have to leave Colorado to go hiking in Utah. We found a patch of slick rock country right outside Fruita on Sunday and saved a minimum of 250 miles of driving in the process. We were intent on our first Tom Ross hike of the PILOT & TODAY season into a desert canyon. But Colorado National Monument also would be an ideal destination for fit road cyclists who don’t fear a monster climb. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve buzzed right by the Monument on the way to destinations in Utah with names like Moab, Blanding, Escalante, Hanksville, Torrey and Kanab. Think of Colorado National Monument as mini Moab. And although the little piece of National Park Service preserve within sight of Grand Junction won’t replace those other destinations, the Monument will give you a

Blues break may be shorter District discusses four-day weekend instead of full week off Zach Fridell

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

The traditional “blues break” for students in the Steamboat Springs School District will likely be shortened to a fourday weekend, according to a preliminary calendar approved Monday by the Steamboat Springs School Board. Superintendent Shalee Cunningham shifted away from the calendar she originally proposed and instead offered a plan that would have school start Aug. 24 and end June 4, with a four-day break in February instead of the typical week-long blues break. Cunningham changed the proposed calendar after a discussion lasting more than 45 minutes with parents and board members. Parents expressed concern that the Aug. 31 start date

Sometimes economic recessions can sprout innovation. The topic came up recently at a networking session for people who are unemployed and will be addressed at a First Steps Seminar on Wednesday. Job losses can provide people the push to do something they’ve always wanted to do, human resources consultant Karen Goedert said last week at the networking session. Companies including Microsoft and FedEx geared up during a “hard recession” in the mid1970s, Randy Rudasics noted in an e-mail. Rudasics is the manager of the Bogue Enterprise Center at Colorado Mountain College’s Alpine Campus and a SCORE counselor. He will

help lead Wednesday’s session at CMC, which is free. The seminar focuses on what’s necessary to start or take over a business, personally and financially. “It’s still in some cases a great time to start a business,” Rudasics said. “Some of the biggest companies started in a slowdown in the 1970s, including Microsoft … but you need to make sure you’re not overly optimistic about sales and expectations in the first few years.” As a counselor to entrepreneurs, Rudasics said he has seen more activity. People who are laid off sometimes opt to try their own venture. “It’s mostly locals that are looking to make a change and have a good idea, but they don’t have the planning capacity yet to pull the idea together into something that could generate revenue,” he said.

Participants will go home with a workbook they can fill out and then bring back for consultations with SCORE volunteers. The session will be tailored to the economic environment, Rudasics said. “I think we will be focusing on a more challenging banking environment and being prepared for that,” he said. “Not everybody needs to borrow, but most do, and we’ll talk extensively about how the credit crunch has affected our local banks.”

Sheriff’s letter to county has little impact Tom Ross

PILOT & TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

The Routt County Board of Commissioners reacted impassively Monday to a letter from Steamboat Springs attorney Mark Fischer on behalf of Sheriff Gary Wall questioning its authority to unilaterally reduce the salaries of the sheriff’s employees. “What are we Wall supposed to do with this?”commission Chairman Doug Monger asked County Attorney John Merrill. “They aren’t threatening to sue us.” Wall said last week that his challenge to the commissioners’ legal authority to cut his employees’ pay is out of a sense of obligation to the office of sheriff and to his staff. In a letter dated April 9 and received by the commissioners Monday morning, Fischer cited case law that he said supports the argument that although the commissioners have the right to revise the adopted budget when revenues fall short of projections, they cannot unilaterally reduce the salaries of employees of elected officials without mutual agreement. “At first review, there seems to be no legal authority for the BCC to unilaterally reduce the salaries of the Sheriff’s Office personnel based upon the cases and statutes cited,” Fischer’s letter concludes. Merrill said he welcomed the letter because he felt that it — for the first time in an ongoing exchange of letters about legal issues pertaining to the sheriff’s authority — acknowledges the right of the county commissioners to revise their budget in midstream. However, Merrill said the case law Fischer cited to support his claim that the commissioners can’t unilaterally adjust the employees of sheriff’s employees is archaic. “They’re old,” Merrill said. “In the last 25 years the courts have realized that the county See Wall, page 12

ach season of the year brings its own unique asterism into our early evening sky, and each one is a geometrical pattern made up of bright stars from different constellations. Summer has its “Summer Triangle,” autumn has the “Great Square of Pegasus,” winter has the magnificent “Winter Circle,” and spring offers us the “Spring Diamond.” The Spring Diamond asterism, also known as the Virgin’s Diamond, is marked at its corners by four of the brightest stars Jimmy Westlake adorning the spring sky. Their names are Arcturus, CELESTIAL NEWS Spica, Cor Caroli and Denebola. Arcturus and Spica are easy to spot, not only because of their flashy brilliance but because the curving handle of the Big Dipper points them out for us so conveniently. Simply “follow the arc of the handle to Arcturus” and then “spike on to Spica.” Arcturus forms the Diamond’s eastern tip. This bright orange star already is in the advanced stages of life and has swelled up into an orange giant, 34 times larger than our sun. At a distance of only 37 light years, Arcturus is the brightest star visible in the sky’s northern hemisphere and the second brightest star visible from Northwest Colorado. Spica marks the Diamond’s southern tip. Its See Westlake, page 11

COMMENTARY

Do you have something to say about a story we’ve written?

(No) Drill, baby, drill Thomas Friedman THE NEW YORK TIMES

LIBERIA, COSTA RICA

Sailing down Costa Rica’s Tempisque River on an eco-tour, I watched a crocodile devour a brown bass with one gulp. It took only a few seconds. The croc’s head emerged from the muddy waters near the bank with the footlong fish writhing in its jaws. He crunched it a couple of times with razorsharp teeth and then, with just the slightest flip of his snout, swallowed the fish whole. Never saw that Friedman before. These days, visitors can still see biodiversity all across Costa Rica — more than 25 percent of the country is protected area — thanks to a unique system it set up to preserve its cornucopia of plants and animals. Many countries could learn a lot from this system.

More than any nation I’ve visited, Costa Rica is insisting that economic growth and environmentalism work together. It has created a holistic strategy to think about growth, one that demands that everything gets counted. So if a chemical factory sells tons of fertilizer but pollutes a river — or a farm sells bananas but destroys a carbonabsorbing and species-preserving forest — this is not honest growth. You have to pay for using nature. It is called “payment for environmental services” — nobody gets to treat climate, water, coral, fish and forests as free. The process began in the 1990s when Costa Rica, which sits at the intersection of two continents and two oceans, came to fully appreciate its incredible bounty of biodiversity — and that its economic future lay in protecting it. So it did something no country has ever done: It put energy, environment, mines and water all under one minister. “In Costa Rica, the minister of envi-

ronment sets the policy for energy, mines, water and natural resources,” explained Carlos M. Rodriguez, who served in that post from 2002 to 2006. In most countries, he noted, “ministers of environment are marginalized.” They are viewed as people who try to lock things away, not as people who create value. Their job is to fight energy ministers who just want to drill for cheap oil. But when Costa Rica put one minister in charge of energy and environment, “it created a very different way of thinking about how to solve problems,” said Rodriguez, now a regional vice president for Conservation International. “The environment sector was able to influence the energy choices by saying: ‘Look, if you want cheap energy, the cheapest energy in the long-run is renewable energy. So let’s not think just about the next six months; let’s think out 25 years.’” As a result, Costa Rica hugely invested See Friedman, page 9

Not a penny more Cal Thomas

TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

April 15 might become the biggest tax-and-spend protest since the Boston Tea Party of 1773. Politicians fear spontaneous citizen outrage. That’s because when the public realizes they have been scammed, bamboozled, defrauded and hustled by politicians who take and then misspend their money — mostly to enhance their own power — they’ll run like scalded dogs. Unlike in the 1958 cult Thomas movie “The Blob,” which featured a creature from outer space that consumed everything to which it attached itself, government is a homegrown monster, consuming everincreasing amounts of capital. And this government blob doesn’t discriminate. It grows no matter which party is in charge.

MALLARD FILLMORE

While the deficit last week raced past $1 trillion, the federal government and many state governments are trying to pry more of our money from us so they can finish creating a dependency culture from which we’ll never escape. Governments never have enough of our money, and they’ll never ask if we have enough. Whatever they do is sold as noble, even righteous and if the people rebel, they are uncaring and greedy. The cry at these tea parties should be “not a penny more” until governments get their houses in order, just as we must do. Most people have been forced to reduce spending during the recession, but not the federal government, and likely not the government in your home state. Take New York (puh-leeze). The state legislature has approved a $131 billion budget, which represents a 9 percent increase in spending from last year. There are stories that Rush Limbaugh and Donald Trump have threatened to aban-

don New York because of higher taxes. A New York Observer editorial asked the right question: “...why did legislators refuse to deal with the need to control their own spending — the real source of the state’s fiscal problems — and instead increase it, blowing millions in public funds on pork barrel programs like ‘Urban Yoga,’ gun clubs and other member-driven spending items?” California is a close second to New York’s high tax rate, having just raised its top income tax rate to 10.55 percent. This means that with the Obama administration’s plan to increase federal taxes, successful residents of New York and California will be paying more than half of their incomes — when payroll, sales and other forms of taxes are included — to governments. When is enough, enough? It wouldn’t take much to get the attention of politicians. If the current level See Thomas, page 9 Bruce Tinsley

VIEWPOINTS

Later is over; it’s when it will be too late Friedman continued from 8 in hydro-electric power, wind and geo-thermal, and today, it gets more than 95 percent of its energy from these renewables. In 1985, it was 50 percent hydro, 50 percent oil. More interesting, Costa Rica discovered its own oil five years ago but decided to ban drilling — so as not to pollute its politics or environment! What country bans oil drilling? Rodriguez also helped to pioneer the idea that in a country such as Costa Rica, dependent on tourism and agriculture, the services provided by ecosystems were important drivers of growth and had to be paid for. Costa Rica took the view that landowners who keep their forests intact and their rivers clean should be paid, because the forests maintained the watersheds

and kept the rivers free of silt — and that benefited dam owners, fishermen, farmers and eco-tour companies downstream. The forests also absorbed carbon. To pay for these environmental services, in 1997, Costa Rica imposed a tax on carbon emissions — 3.5 percent of the market value of fossil fuels — which goes into a national forest fund to pay indigenous communities for protecting the forests around them. And the country imposed a water tax whereby major water users — hydro-electric dams, farmers and drinking water providers — had to pay villagers upstream to keep their rivers pristine. “We now have 7,000 beneficiaries of water and carbon taxes,” said Rodriguez. “It has become a major source of income for poor people. It

has also enabled Costa Rica to actually reverse deforestation. We now have twice the amount of forest as 20 years ago.” As we debate a new energy future, we need to remember that nature provides this incredible range of economic services — from carbon-fixation to water filtration to natural beauty for tourism. If government policies don’t recognize those services and pay the people who sustain nature’s ability to provide them, things go haywire. We end up impoverishing both nature and people. Worse, we start racking up a bill in the form of climatechanging greenhouse gases, petro-dictatorships and biodiversity loss that gets charged on our kids’ Visa cards to be paid by them later. Well, later is over. Later is when it will be too late.

of outrage can be maintained after the tea parties, individuals will have two choices. They can reduce the amount of taxes they pay government, thereby sending the message that if we have to cut back then so should government. The other choice is for the successful to either defer income until a tax-cutting administration succeeds this one, or deliberately limit

their incomes to no more than $250,000 a year, depriving government of the new income sources it needs to maintain its obscene size. On March 28, 2007, Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) commented on the Bush administration’s proposed fiscal 2008 budget: “The gross federal debt is now almost $9 trillion, or more than $29,000 per person. That is how much every man, woman and child

in America owes to this debt. This is the fiscal mess that we have to clean up.” The debt and the per-person cost are now far greater. Do we hear a peep from Rep. Maloney or the many other Democrats who were critical of the Bush deficits? Nope. It’s time Maloney, the rest of Congress and state legislators hear from the people. Not a penny more until you put your house in order!

A day of hiking could save your sanity Ross continued from 2 and light rain showers, we were prepared. The cold precipitation let up by late morning, and the day grew progressively milder. We spotted the scarlet leaves of Indian paintbrush cowering under sagebrush in the relative protection of Monument Canyon shortly after noon, and by 3:30 p.m., the sun was painting the Coke Ovens and the sandstone pillar of Independence Monument with warm light. Colorado National Monument offers hiking routes varying in length from a half mile to eight miles. But if you are an intermediate hiker, your

options are to start at the top and hike a long way down, or start at the bottom and hike a long way up. We consulted the staff in the visitors center and opted to begin our trek near the top of Rim Rock Drive above 6,000 feet elevation. Dropping into Monument Canyon, we gave up 600 feet of elevation before arriving at the Kissing Couple rock formation and reversed our trip to reclaim that same 600 feet of switchbacks. It was just about right for making the transition from flabby skiing muscles to flabby hiking muscles. Alternately, Liberty Cap Trail is ideal for people who

don’t want all of the elevation gain — it leads seven miles through piñon and juniper forest to a rock formation of the same name. However, the first mile of Liberty Cap also serves as a connector to one of the most unusual trails in the monument, the 3.3-mile long Corkscrew Trail. Just imagine switchbacks steep enough to earn the name. A day of hiking in the monument will never replace a full week of exploration in Utah. However, when you can’t afford to take a full week away from work and you need a momentary escape from endless winter in the ’Boat, it could save your sanity.

Diamond part of 4 other constellations Westlake continued from 6 icy blue color stands in sharp contrast to orange Arcturus. Spica is a blue supergiant star that shines 260 light years away and is the 10th brightest star in our sky. The name Spica means “the ear of wheat” and comes from the same root word as “spaghetti.” The other two stars in the Diamond are trickier to locate because they aren’t quite as bright as Arcturus and Spica. The northern tip of the Diamond is marked by the

star Cor Caroli, or Charles’ Heart, named in honor of King Charles II of England. Locate Cor Caroli by again using the curved handle of the Big Dipper. If you imagine the Dipper’s handle to be an arc of a complete circle, Cor Caroli would lie near the center of this circle. Cor Caroli is one of the most beautiful double stars in the sky and is well worth closer scrutiny through a telescope. Denebola marks the Diamond’s western tip. The name Denebola literally means “the tail of the lion.” It rep-

resents the tuft of hair on the end of the tail of Leo the Lion. Denebola is 36 light years from Earth, one light year closer to us than Arcturus. Near the center of the Diamond lies the star Vindemiatrix, the “grape gatherer.” Vindemiatrix and Spica belong to the constellation of Virgo. Each of the four corners of the Diamond falls in a different constellation, so once located, the Virgin’s Diamond can help you find many other gems of our springtime sky. Happy diamond hunting.

Whatever happens, the commissioners do no expect to eliminate any jobs before June 30. The preparation for layoffs comes as the commissioners continue seeking ways to mitigate a $4.9 million budget shortfall this year and prepare to balance the 2010 budget in an era of uncertainty. Commission Chairman Doug Monger said his panel is unable to foresee when an economic recovery might bring relief to the county budget. “It could be one year out or it could be two or three years,” Monger said. The commissioners are expected to meet with department heads at 4 p.m. today to go over proposals for furlough plans suggested in lieu of a 10 percent pay reduction invoked by the commissioners April 1.

Act passed by the Senate on April 2, Steamboat’s district would receive $382,000 less than in previous years based on the district’s size. The Education Fund Board also allocated $488,000 less to the district for the 2009-10 school year. The proposed School Finance Act includes an increase in base funding for the district of 4.9 percent, or about $550,000, but the overall effect on the district when including the Fund Board loss and other decreases is about a $332,000 decline in revenue.

“The bottom line right now is we’ve got $186,000 to work with,” Mellor said. “That’s before raises, before anything else that we do.” The district recently announced there will be no costof-living raises for next school year, but Cunningham said at the time that employees still would receive their regular step increases based on experience. Those step increases would cost the district $297,000. The preliminary budget also reflects cuts of one position in the English Language Learner and Gifted and Talented programs.

Senate moves to balance budget Group backs 2 measures to take $500M from insurer DENVER

The Senate backed two measures Monday aimed at taking $500 million from a state-created workers compensation insurance company to balance next year’s budget despite the objections of Pinnacol Assurance and the businesses that rely on it. The bills, along with the overall $18.9 billion budget, now head to the House for consideration. Despite the battle about the bills — including a Pinnacolorganized rally at the Capitol before the vote — company CEO Ken Ross and Gov. Bill Ritter said the two sides still are talking about other possible ways to avoid cutting higher education by $300 million. Ritter said in a statement that such a large cut to state colleges and universities can’t be allowed

because it would cause the state to forfeit the entire $760 million it is getting under the federal stimulus package to restore budget cuts. That’s because a $300 million hit would drop higher education below 2005 spending levels in violation of the stimulus act. Ritter must spend most of the $760 million in stimulus money under his control on higher education and kindergarten through 12th-grade schools. He plans to spend $150 million on higher education in the next fiscal year, $50 million more than originally planned, but he won’t be able to if the $300 million cut stands. Ritter said he would continue to work with the Legislature’s Joint Budget Committee on the issue. “This includes ongoing discussions with Pinnacol Assurance and exploring other ways to close the remaining $300 million budget gap,” he said. Ritter and Ross declined to give details about the other alternatives but Ross has previously said it could involve an “investment vehicle” used by Pinnacol. “I live here. I don’t want to see higher education hurt in this state,” said Ross, whose daughter is a student at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Ross estimated Monday’s rally, including T-shirts and

signs, cost several thousand dollars. In between the initial Senate vote in favor of the Pinnacol bills and Monday’s final vote, state Attorney General John Suthers ruled that Pinnacol’s $2 billion in assets don’t belong to the government and it would be unconstitutional to take them. One of the Pinnacol measures (Senate Bill 273) tells the company to turn over $500 million from its approximately $700 million surplus. The other (Senate Bill 273) takes control of its money away from its board which would help the state defend its move against a legal challenge by Pinnacol. It also would require the company to use the remainder of its surplus to issue refunds to businesses with fewer than 50 employees. Senate Majority Leader Brandon Shaffer, D-Longmont, argued the company has its roots in a state fund started in 1915 and that it was created as a political subdivision of the state using money from the state treasury. He said if the company were subject to taxes it would have to pay about $40 million a year. “It pays no taxes and its massive surplus can be better spent on higher education,” Shaffer said.

Stocks end mostly higher ahead of earnings reports NEW YORK

Stocks ended mostly higher Monday ahead of a flurry of earnings reports that could determine whether the economy really is getting better, as investors have been hoping in the past month as they plunged money back into the market. Early signs were promising. Goldman Sachs Group surprised investors after the end of trading Monday when it

released better-than-expected quarterly results and announced a $5 billion stock offering. The company had been scheduled to report results early today. The bank’s $1.7 billion profit was just the sort of good surprise traders were eager for Monday as they snapped up financial stocks. Some are looking for signs of recovery, while others don’t want to get burned if banks beat the low expectations the market has set for the industry.

The buying helped the Dow Jones industrial average turn a 120-point deficit into a modest loss of 26 points by the time the closing bell sounded. Broader indexes managed to post gains. Trading volume was light, which can skew the market’s moves. The occasional bouts of selling after a long holiday weekend were orderly and suggested that traders were reluctant to give up on a five-week rally. The earnings reports and economic figures due this week could reignite

buying if they beat Wall Street’s modest expectations. “If you get a couple earnings reports that are better than the worst that people expected then that might help,” said Denis Amato, chief investment officer at Ancora Advisors. Beyond banks, industrial stocks ended mixed after Boeing and Chevron said the weak economy was hurting their results. The market was unsettled by a New York Times report

�������������������������������������

saying the Treasury has directed General Motors to lay the groundwork for a potential bankruptcy filing by June 1. GM might be forced to file if it cannot complete a plan to exchange debt for equity, according to the report. The Dow fell 25.57, or 0.3 percent, to 8,057.81. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 2.17, or 0.3 percent, to 858.73, and the Nasdaq composite index rose 0.77, or 0.1 percent, to 1,653.31.

Nuggets top Kings to clinch division crown Arnie Stapleton

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER

J.R. Smith’s career-high 45 points and franchise-best 11 3-pointers helped the Denver Nuggets clinch the Northwest Division title and home-court edge in a playoff series for the first time in 21 years with a 118MONDAY’S 98 win against GAME: the Sacramento Nuggets Kings on Monday 118 night. Kings 98 With chants of “J.R.” cascading from the rafters, Smith sank half of his 3s in the fourth quarter, when he scored 23 points. The Nuggets (54-27) tied their franchise record for most wins since joining the NBA in 1976. They can break that mark with a victory in their regularseason finale Wednesday night at Portland. Denver clinched at least the third seed in the Western Conference. The Nuggets would secure the No. 2 seed with a win at Portland or if Houston loses at Dallas on Wednesday night. Either way, star Carmelo Anthony finally has the homecourt advantage on his side as he tries to end five straight seasons of first-round exits by the Nuggets. Anthony had 21 points, nine assists and nine rebounds in 32 minutes against Sacramento, which was led by Ike Diogu’s career-best 32 points. Anthony spent the fourth quarter cheering on Smith, who twice sank all three foul shots when he was hammered going for yet another 3-pointer. Smith’s 11 3-pointers — on 18 attempts — bested the franchise mark of nine set by Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf in 1995 and tied by Michael Adams in 1991. Smith’s previous career high was eight, which he accomplished three times, including earlier this month against Utah. Smith’s previous career high See Nuggets, page 20

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Monday night’s soccer game at Gardner Field had all the makings of a classic Western Slope showdown. For the first 38 minutes, the game between the hometown Steamboat Springs Sailors and the Battle Mountain Huskies

unfolded pretty much as expected. Both teams were 5-0 in league play coming into the game, and the Huskies had not lost to the Sailors in league action the past two seasons. But then Steamboat’s offense got the break it was looking for, and the team never looked back en route to a 4-1 victory. “I thought the first half was really excellent. We really played

well and competed and created chances,” Huskies coach Dave Cope said. “If the second goal doesn’t go right before halftime, it’s a different game.” But when Steamboat took advantage of Battle Mountain’s defensive lapse with less than two minutes remaining, the home team took the upper hand in the game. Huskies goaltender Nicole Frye tried to pass

the ball up the field to a waiting teammate, but Steamboat sophomore Leah Berdine jumped in front of the pass. Berdine fired the ball into the back of the net to give the home team a 2-0 advantage at halftime and all the confidence they needed to hold the lead.

Steamboat lacrosse stays unbeaten PILOT & TODAY STAFF REPORT

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Strong offense from Gus Worden and Brian Bertrand helped boost the Steamboat Springs High School boys lacrosse team to a 14-3 victory against Battle Mountain in the Vail Valley on Monday.

Steamboat improved its record to 10-0 with the win. The team faces a busy week with games every night except for Friday. “We can’t get overconfident at this point, we have to keep getting better at our game. We have to improve at the little things to help make us that much better,” coach

Bob Hiester said after the win. Steamboat netted six goals in the first quarter of Monday’s game and controlled the contest from start to finish. Worden and Bertrand had three goals each. Chase Grippa added two goals, and Andrew White had one goal and an assist. Garret Ehrick, Drew

Ruff, Tyler Samlowski, Grant McCannon and Jack Spady also scored goals. “We not relying on one or two guys, we are playing good team lacrosse,” Hiester said. Steamboat and Battle Mountain play again at 4 p.m. today at Gardner Field in Steamboat Springs.

Henry had scored the first goal of the game at the 23-minute mark on an assist from Mia Quick. “We are trying so hard to take back the Western Slope, because Battle Mountain has had it the last two years” Steamboat junior Emi Birch said. “We are trying to get that back, and we are really hoping to get a home playoff so that we can take it further. We want to close the gap between us and the higher-tier schools.” The Steamboat goal late in the first half seemed to stun the Huskies. Battle Mountain continued to play hard, but it was unable to get the type of pressure it needed to pull back into the game. The Huskies’ best opportunity for a spark came with just

more than 28 minutes remaining. That’s when Lizzie Seibert unleashed a hard, well-placed shot at Steamboat goalkeeper Hanna Berglund. But Berglund handled the shot, stifling any potential comeback. A few minutes later, Steamboat extended the lead to 3-0 after sophomore Hope Scott sent a ball in front of Battle Mountain’s goal. The ball bounced off several players and eventually landed in the back of the net. Steamboat pushed the lead to 4-0 with just more than 11 minutes left to play after a Birch breakaway opportunity. Instead of firing the ball on goal, however, the Steamboat junior stopped and passed the ball to a wide-open Henry, who powered a shot past Frye for Steamboat’s final score. “I saw the lane to go to goal. But I felt like there were

people behind me, so I figured I would try to stop it,” Birch said. “I knew Mandi (Devos) and Kiersten (Henry) would be running up because they are always there. I decided to slide it back to them and it worked out, probably better than if I had just cracked it myself.” Battle Mountain’s Seibert scored the Huskies’ only goal late in the game. “We came into tonight really looking to play forward quicker, and that definitely helped to put balls in the back of the net,” Steamboat coach Rob Bohlmann said. “We sacrificed some of our possession, but at this point, we will take it.” Steamboat, now 6-0 in league play and 7-3 overall, travels to Rifle on Thursday to face the Bears. The Huskies will try to regroup today when they travel to Eagle Valley.

son, Nuggets executive Mark Warkentien pulled off the biggest trade in the NBA, acquiring Chauncey Billups from Detroit for Allen Iverson. Iverson had a hard time adjusting to his new team and missed a lot of games. He’ll miss the Pistons’ playoff run and he’s complained about his role as a reserve, saying he’d rather retire than come off the bench next season.

In a measured break with a half-century of U.S. policy toward communist Cuba, the Obama administration lifted restrictions Monday on Cuban-Americans who want to travel and send money to their island homeland. In a further gesture of openness, U.S. telecommunications firms were freed to seek business there, too. But the broader U.S. trade embargo remained in place. The White House portrayed its changes, which fulfilled one of President Barack Obama’s campaign promises, as a path to promoting personal freedom in one of the few remaining communist nations. They also marked another major step away from the foreign policy priorities of the Bush administration. But the moves fell far short of the more drastic policy adjustments that some — including Republican Sen. Richard Lugar — have argued are required to promote U.S. interests in Latin America and to bring about change in

Cuba. For most Americans, Cuba remains the only country in the world their government prohibits them from visiting — a barrier to potential travelers as well as to the Cuban tourist industry that would like to see them. Cubans welcomed the changes but said more should be done. “It’s help that the people really need,” Fermina Gonzalez, a 46-year-old housewife in the leafy Havana neighborhood of Vedado, said about the ending of limits on money sent by CubanAmericans. “Right now, we have to work lots of jobs just to make ends meet.” But few Cubans expect Obama to end the trade embargo or allow American tourists to visit the island without limits. “He should do more and lift travel restrictions for all Americans,” said Alberto Sal, a 68-year-old retiree. “Until he does that, I don’t think he’s doing much.” Lifting or substantially easing the economic embargo, as set forth in the Cuban Assets Control Regulations and administered by the Treasury

Department, would require legislative action by Congress. The White House made no mention of any intention to seek such changes; Obama said as a presidential candidate that the embargo was a form of leverage to press for democratic reforms in Cuba. Julia Sweig, director of Latin studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, described Obama’s changes as “teensy, weensy” and said they appear to be driven more by domestic political calculations that by foreign policy considerations. “This is a cautious first step by a president whose political advisers are looking at the Florida electoral vote,” she said in a telephone interview, “and who are not looking at this as a matter of foreign policy. That’s the big problem with Cuba policy. We have a policy toward Miami and not toward Havana.” Sweig added, however, that Obama’s decision to authorize more telecommunications links with Cuba was a “potentially significant opening,” particularly if the Cuban government follows through and allows those connections.
