A group studying improvements to U.S. Highway 40 in west Steamboat Springs is honing in on a proposal that would widen the road to four lanes from downtown to Steamboat II.

“It would be done on a costsharing basis, and that’s still being developed,” City Manager Jon Roberts said Monday. “Once you determine the preferred improvements, you have an estimated cost and then the estimated cost gets propor-

We did all of it. However, one of the lasting memories I’ll take from this spring’s visit to the traditional fishing town of Newport, Ore., is that of standing in a steady rain on the Coast Highway watching the annual Loyalty Day parade. If you took Steamboat Springs’ Fourth of July parade, subtracted most of the horses and the homemade floats and added extra local princesses and a significant Armed Forces presence, you would be able to grasp the essence of Lincoln County, Oregon’s Loyalty Day celebration. It had all of the homegrown funkiness of Steamboat’s flagship Fourth of July and Winter Carnival pageants. In between the Coast Guard vessel, the Army National Guard earth-moving equipment and the U.S. Navy scale-model aircraft carrier,

happier. What a vacation! Later, while reflecting on the deeper, symbolic meanings of small-town parades, I recalled a chance encounter I had in February with a television news anchor from Florida. I met Anne Dwyer and her husband, Nick, at the Winter Carnival night show in Steamboat. She is the coanchor of Fox 13’s Good Day Tampa Bay, and they own a vacation home here. Dwyer was very curious about the tradition of winter Carnival, and after filling her in, I urged her to attend the Winter Carnival Parade the following morning. After returning to Florida, she wrote to tell me that she was so taken with Steamboat’s See Ross, page 12

I even got a kick out of Ronald McDonald riding through the historic Art Deco downtown in a giant chauffeured boot. But then, I’m a sucker for that kind of kitschy stuff. It may be that an unnatural attraction to fairs and parades is an occupational hazard for community journalists.

Spring has Sprung!

Steamboat 700 consultant Peter Patten, from left, goes over the planned development with planning commission members Karen Dixon and Sarah Fox on Monday while touring the site in west Steamboat Springs. On Thursday, the Steamboat Springs Planning Commission will provide feedback to developers about the annexation proposal.

Steamboat 700 gains speed Various components of development under consideration STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

As the city approaches a decision about whether to annex Steamboat 700, its review of the project is moving from the conceptual to the detailed. “With the City Council right now, there’s multiple components going on at the same time,” Steamboat Springs City Manager Jon Roberts said Monday. “Right now, the one that’s getting the most focus is the fiscal impact model.” The city and Steamboat 700 are modeling the financial implications of the development in terms of operating expenses and capital projects. Roberts said Steamboat 700 is close to revenue neutrality on the operating side. The city has had less time to review Steamboat 700’s capital plan, Roberts said.

Steamboat 700 got a boost on the operating front last week when Steamboat Springs City Council decided to support the developers’ position on how the costs of a new west-side fire station should be allocated. Rather than chalking up 100 percent of the station’s costs to development in Steamboat 700, council members agreed to calculate the need for the station generated by Steamboat 700 on a pro rata basis. “Based upon that, there’s some modeling and analysis being done on what is their pro rata share,” Roberts said. The fiscal impact model shows Steamboat 700 becoming revenue-positive at different stages depending on its absorption rate. City Council President Loui Antonucci said last week that the council is concerned about Steamboat 700’s first few

Nine years ago today, racecar driver Adam Petty died in a crash at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. This morning, Adam’s father and NASCAR driver Kyle Petty — joined by about 200 other motorcycle riders — will roar out of Steamboat Springs and continue a cross-country trek benefiting a charity founded in his son’s honor. It was fitting then, that participants say the Chick-fil-A Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America has evolved into a family affair. “I heard about how everyone, they’re like family,” Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL

Pro Bowl running back Herschel Walker said about the ride. Walker participates in the ride with his brother-in-law. “I got on the ride, and I realized it’s true. When you leave the ride, you miss the people from the ride. You think about it all year.” When he first participated in the ride four years ago, Walker said he took some ribbing because all 16 of his motorcycles had a combined mileage of about only 500 miles. This year’s nine-day trip is 3,500 miles from Stevenson, Wash., to Greensboro, N.C.

LIFT-UP of Routt County got an extra boost from a local hotel Monday. Fifty-two rooms worth of furnishings were spread across the thrift store’s parking lot as a steady stream of shoppers picked through $10 chairs, $20 dressers and other furnishings from Comfort Inn. The dressers and end tables were offered during a daylong sale in what LIFT-UP Executive Director David Freseman called a “grand experiment” for the nonprofit organization. Two semitrailers full of furnishings arrived at the center at 8:30 a.m., and volunteers and LIFTUP workers spent the next three hours and 15 minutes unloading the goods, including mirrors, paintings and lamps. The round tables and nightstands were selling early in the day, said Lina Grant, sales associate with LIFT-UP. Working since before 8 a.m., Grant said the nice weather encouraged shoppers like Lisa Kamieniecki, who was picking out a picture and frame. “I create a piece of artwork every year for Bust of Steamboat, and it’s nice to have it in a frame,” she said. “I’m going to stock up on them.” Comfort Inn Director of Sales Michael Watt said he decided to

donate the furnishings, instead of selling them through a liquidator, as a way to help local organizations. “We wanted to find a way to give back to the community that has treated our hotel and workers so well, and we thought this would be a good chance to give back,” he said. The hotel is in the process of a $200,000 remodel of all 52 rooms. Each will get new wallpaper, furniture and televisions, and Watt

said the work should be done in mid-June. “This is something I got together with the owners and said, ‘How can we best help the community right now?’ and the last thing people want to do when (their) family is expanding is to go out and pay for new furniture,” Watt said. By the end of the day, the sale had generated about $1,000. That money will join the regular revenue from the thrift store to sup-

port the LIFT-UP Food Bank. About $80,000 a year is generated from the thrift store to buy food and supplies, Freseman said. The furniture that remained unsold — about half of it — was donated to New Horizons Ministries thrift store in Cañon City, a group that cares for the children of incarcerated women. Any furnishings unable to fit in New Horizons’ trailer will be available at the LIFT-UP thrift store today, Freseman said.

COMMENTARY

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

Harry, Louise and Barack Paul Krugman

THE NEW YORK TIMES

Is this the end for Harry and Louise? Harry and Louise were the fictional couple who appeared in advertisements run by the insurance industry in 1993, fretting about what would happen if “government bureaucrats” started making health care decisions. The ads helped kill the Clinton health care plan, and have stood, ever since, as a symbol of the ability of powerful special interests to block health Krugman care reform. But on Saturday, excited administration officials called me to say that this time the medical-industrial complex (their term, not mine) is offering to be helpful. Six major industry players — including America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), a descendant of the lobbying

group that spawned Harry and Louise — have sent a letter to President Barack Obama sketching out a plan to control health care costs. What’s more, the letter implicitly endorses much of what administration officials have been saying about health economics. Are there reasons to be suspicious about this gift? You bet — and I’ll get to that in a bit. But first things first: On the face of it, this is tremendously good news. The signatories of the letter say that they’re developing proposals to help the administration achieve its goal of shaving 1.5 percentage points off the growth rate of health care spending. That may not sound like much, but it’s actually huge: Achieving that goal would save $2 trillion during the next decade. How are costs to be contained? There are few details, but the industry has clearly been reading Peter Orszag, the budget director. In his previous job, as the director of

the Congressional Budget Office, Orszag argued that America spends far too much on some types of health care with little or no medical benefit, even as it spends too little on other types of care, like prevention and treatment of chronic conditions. Putting these together, he concluded that “substantial opportunities exist to reduce costs without harming health overall.” Sure enough, the health industry letter talks about “reducing over-use and under-use of health care by aligning quality and efficiency incentives.” It also picks up a related favorite Orszag theme, calling for “adherence to evidence-based best practices and therapies.” All in all, it’s just what the doctor, er, budget director ordered. Before we start celebrating, however, we have to ask the obvious question. Is this gift a Trojan horse? After all, several of the organizations that sent that letter have in the past been major villains when See Krugman, page 9

The titled and entitled Cal Thomas

TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

LONDON

There are titled people in Britain and then there are people who consider themselves entitled. The current scandal here is that the entitled are not the growing number receiving benefits from government, but the many members of Parliament whose highly questionable expenses are jaw dropping, even to the most cynical observer. In a series of front-page stories last week in The Daily Telegraph, members Thomas of the majority Labour Party — including Prime Minister Gordon Brown and several cabinet ministers — had their expense vouchers published. The newspaper paid an unidentified source for the information, which was due to be released for

MALLARD FILLMORE

free this summer. Ordinarily, one might expect those who have been identified as milking the taxpayers for dubious personal expenses to express shame, or at least embarrassment, but instead the members are unrepentant and fighting back. Given the nature of the expensed items, it is doubtful they will persuade the British public, which continues to struggle financially. Barbara Follett, the minister of culture, creative industries and tourism, claimed 25,000 pounds in expenses for security because she doesn’t feel safe living in the Soho district. Follett’s husband is the bestselling novelist and multimillionaire Ken Follett. It apparently didn’t occur to her to ask him to pay for her security detail, or move from a neighborhood she regards as unsafe to one in which she feels more secure. Immigration Minister Phil Woolas expensed women’s clothing and toiletries, including tampons and diapers.

Parliamentary rules allow expenses only for items that are “exclusively” for the MP’s use. Unless the married Woolas is holding something back, it will be difficult for him to explain how tampons are for his personal use. Members are allowed expenses for second homes. Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling, however, switched his second home designation four times in four years, claiming the second home benefit each time. Darling recently proposed to increase the income tax to 50 percent. Perhaps he needs the money to help underwrite his expenses. Margaret Moran, a parliamentarian from Luton South, expensed 22,500 pounds of taxpayer money, just days after she switched her second home designation, to repair dry rot at her and her husband’s seaside home, a home located 200 miles from her constituency. Dry rot See Thomas, page 9 Bruce Tinsley

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Best policy news I’ve heard in a long time it comes to health care policy. I’ve already mentioned AHIP. There’s also the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), the lobbying group that helped push through the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 — a bill that prevented Medicare from bargaining over drug prices and locked in huge overpayments to private insurers. Indeed, one of the new letter’s signatories is former U.S. Rep. Billy Tauzin, who shepherded that bill through Congress then immediately left public office to become PhRMA’s lavishly paid president. The point is that there’s every reason to be cynical about these players’ motives. Remember that what the rest of us call health care costs, they call income. What’s presumably going on

here is that key interest groups have realized health care reform is going to happen no matter what they do and that aligning themselves with the Party of No will just deny them a seat at the table. (Republicans, after all, still denounce research into which medical procedures are effective and which are not as a dastardly plot to deprive Americans of their freedom to choose.) I would strongly urge the Obama administration to hang tough in the bargaining ahead. In particular, AHIP will surely try to use the good will created by its stance on cost control to kill an important part of health reform: Giving Americans the choice of buying into a public insurance plan as an alternative to private insurers. The administration should not give in on this point.

But let me not be too negative. That the medical-industrial complex is trying to shape heath care reform rather than block it is a tremendously good omen. It looks as if America may finally get what every other advanced country already has: a system that guarantees essential health care to all its citizens. And serious cost control would change everything, not just for health care, but for America’s fiscal future. As Orszag has emphasized, increasing health care costs are the main reason long-run budget projections look so grim. Slow the rate at which those costs rise, and the future will look far brighter. I still won’t count my health care chickens until they’re hatched. But this is some of the best policy news I’ve heard in a long time.

Conservative should bring change to system Thomas continued from 8 seems to be a useful metaphor for the condition of Parliament. As if the outrageous expense claims were not enough, what the Telegraph calls “begging letters” from parliamentarians whose expenses were rejected expose the grip the entitlement mentality has on many politicians. One Labour MP appealed a ruling against him this way: “From a natural justice perspective I feel a justifiable exception would be the fairest manner to deal with the current situation.” He wanted a 3,100-pound reimbursement for a 40-inch Sony TV. Here’s another: “I object to your decision not to reimburse me for the costs of purchasing a baby’s cot for use in my London home. ... Perhaps you might

write to me explaining where my son should sleep next time he visits me in London?” And another: “I would be very grateful if (the expenses) could be paid in the last round of the year on Friday. Otherwise, I might be in line for a divorce!” Like relatives who overstay their welcome at holiday time, consuming food and drink and soiling your home, politicians in Britain and America come to believe they are entitled to other people’s money simply because they win an election. When the relatives leave, the owners usually give the place a good cleaning. That’s what Parliament (and Congress) need to do. The Labour Party might have handed the Conservatives a powerful issue if the conservatives had not also been feeding at the public trough. The Telegraph is following up its

���������� ���������������������

stories on Labor with similar reports on the Conservatives. In addition to the second home reimbursements, one Conservative, Cheryl Gillan, the shadow Welsh secretary, claimed an expense for dog food. (She at least promised to reimburse the government). David Cameron, the Conservative Party leader and potential prime minister, (he leads in the polls) apparently escaped embarrassment as his claims have been called “relatively straightforward” by the Telegraph. This might allow him to take on the role of reformer in the coming election campaign. Conservatives should bring real change to a system that allowed one Labour member to expense the cleaning of his swimming pool. That might be defensible if the member could walk on water.

the Northwest Colorado forecast area, including Moffat and Routt counties, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. today. A red flag warning means “critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now ... or will shortly. A combination of strong winds ... low relative humidity ... and warm temperatures will create explosive fire growth potential,” according to the National Weather Service. Today’s forecast for Steamboat Springs includes a high temperature of 73 degrees with east winds 10 to 15 mph increasing to 25 to 30 mph. Gusts could be as high as 40 mph. There are no wildfires burning in Northwest Colorado, but officials have warned that dry conditions and pine beetle-killed forests are creating dangerous fire conditions for the region. Last week, Gov. Bill Ritter said Northwest Colorado faces a higher risk of wildfire this year because of the volume of beetlekilled trees. In addition to the red flag warning, the National Weather Service has issued a flood advisory for the Elk River near Milner. At 11:15 a.m. Monday the river stage was 5.3 feet. Flood stage is at 7 feet. The Weather Service forecasts the river to rise to 6.0 feet today and 6.2 feet Wednesday.

A 37-year-old Craig man who was thrown from his motorcycle in a crash on U.S. Highway 40 west of Hayden on Monday night was listed in serious condition. He was scheduled to be flown to Denver Health, authorities said. Ricky Bustad’s condition was upgraded from critical to serious by 10:30 p.m. Monday. The crash occurred at about 7 p.m. as Bustad was driving west on U.S. 40 near Yampa River State Park, said Capt. Dan Parrott, of West Routt Fire and Ambulance. Bustad is thought to have lost control of his HarleyDavidson motorcycle and gone off the road near mile marker 103. Colorado State Patrol Sgt. Scott Elliott said Bustad went off the right side of the road near a curve. “The road curved to the left and he went straight,” Elliott said. Bustad’s motorcycle struck a sign, then a delineator post. Elliott said Bustad was thrown from the motorcycle and into a patch of bushes on the side of the road. Elliott said there was no obvious cause of the crash, and Bustad was alone on the motorcycle. Traffic on U.S. 40 temporarily was blocked, but the highway was reopened a short time later.

Police see fraud increasing

Bankers, law enforcement officers warn residents about scams

Self-healing art which harmonizes the energy of the body, mind and spirit to restore health and well-being.

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

The e-mails, letters and phone calls are pouring in to Routt County residents. Each person is a winner, the notes promise, as long as you are willing to pay a processing fee, taxes or just repay the extra money accidentally included in the winnings. But local bankers and law enforcement officers are warning that these schemes are nothing more than attempts to bilk residents out of their hardearned money. “All banks are seeing fraud at unprecedented levels,” said Greg Dixson, regional president of First National Bank of the Rockies. “There’s so much going on; it’s amazing.” Dixson said he gets updates about new frauds a couple of times a week. With one recent attempt, local residents received checks saying they won a lottery or drawing for $3,500. The letter included a check, but stated that in order to release the money the recipient first needed to pay taxes or a collection fee on the prize. If residents were to cash the check, they would discover it is invalid — and they are out the “taxes” they paid to the sender, Dixson said. Routt County Sheriff’s Office investigator Ken Klinger said people should be aware of anything promising quick riches. “It’s typically that you’ve won a lottery or some happy horsecrap thing like that, and it’s always a scam,” he said. “You get an e-mail saying, ‘Lucky recipient, I’ve been trying to contact you and finally decided to e-mail you. … Please contact us so we can make arrangements to get the money to you.’ Of course, they want you to pay the taxes.” Another scam Dixson said has increased in recent weeks advertises for a “mystery shopper” job that pays residents for visiting local retailers.

It’s liking driving an old pickup with no power steering.” PGA golfer Davis Love III also participates in the ride with his daughter. “It’s one of those deals that

just kind of evolved,” Kyle Petty said. “It’s funny how it evolves into a family deal.” Petty said the ride, in its 15th year, began with a group of friends who just wanted to be able to say they had ridden a motorcycle across the country. Then it became a charity event benefiting mostly children’s hospitals. But for the past five years, its main beneficiary has been Victory Junction — a camp in Randleman, N.C., for children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses — founded by Petty

and his wife, Pattie, in honor of their late son. Today’s leg of the journey will take the charity ride to its next overnight stop in Hays, Kan. On Wednesday, the group will stop in Kansas City, Kan., to break ground on a second Victory Junction camp. Since 1995, more than 6,100 riders have logged 7.9 million miles and donated more than $12 million to children’s charities. This year’s charity ride concludes May 17 in Randleman.

City Council President Loui Antonucci said the city has not yet determined how much the city will contribute or where the funds will come from. “We know we’re going to have to participate,” he said, “but we haven’t committed to anything yet.” The study is addressing alternatives to meet transportation needs while also examining the effects of the alternatives on environmental resources. Because U.S. 40 is part of the federal highway system, the study is required under the National Environmental Protection Act. An update on the NEPA study will be presented to the Steamboat Springs City Council today. “This isn’t the final acceptance,” Roberts said, “but this is to introduce the items that are being … considered.” Antonucci said he doesn’t expect council members to give specific direction on what the highway should look like because they are not traffic

general fund. Antonucci said he’s not crazy about the idea. “They say they want to run that thing as an enterprise fund. OK, but who pays into that fund?” he said. “I get a little concerned because … one of our goals is that Steamboat stays affordable for local people to live here. If we have to find more ways to tax people, that kind of goes against the goal.” ■ Council will debate potential changes to its affordable housing ordinance. The changes would allow developers to make a payment to the city in lieu of building actual affordable units. Under the city’s existing inclusionary zoning policy, paying a fee in lieu is allowed only at base area projects and for fractional units. Council also will consider allowing developers to propose a voluntary real estate transfer

tax on first and subsequent sales of units. Antonucci said he supports flexibility and giving developers a variety of options for satisfying affordable housing requirements. “I think it has to be a multipronged approach for developers,” he said. “I don’t know if you can make an ordinance that withstands the ups and downs in the economy.” However, a city staff report states that city staff supports changes to inclusionary zoning to confront the current economic situation “with the hope that within a reasonable period of time, circumstances will permit a return to the original intent of the” ordinance. — To reach Brandon Gee, call 871-4210 or e-mail bgee@steamboatpilot.com

singular winter parade that when she spied a crew from Fox 31 KDVR in Denver documenting the Steamboat Springs High School skiing band, she grabbed the cameraman and convinced him to tape a standup of herself speaking extemporaneously with the parade in the background. Dwyer’s plan was to contrast the Winter Carnival parade with a traditional parade held annually in Tampa. She would write her own story for Fox 13 WTVT and use edited Fox 31 footage from Steamboat. So what is it about journalists who can’t resist telling

a story, even when they are on vacation? And what is it about the human psyche that lures some of us to dress up in funny clothes and stand on a flatbed trailer waving while parading down main street? And for others, what is the fascination in standing on the curb and making photographs as the parade passes by? Psychologists, anthropologists and sociologists might all have a field day with the subject. But I’m none of those. I’m just endlessly fascinated by human nature.

So much for the idea that the Dallas Mavericks would be devastated by the way Game 3 ended. Dirk Nowitzki wasn’t about to let them get swept.

The Moffat County High School boys swim team had some catching up to do on the last lap of the 400-meter freestyle relay at last weekend’s

regional qualifying meet. Despite good performances from John Kirk, Chance Peterson and Charlie Griffiths, the swimmers from Durango High School pulled ahead. Enter Steamboat Springs swimmer Cole Worsley. Swimming the last lap

of the last event of the day, Worsley, who competes with the Bulldogs, closed the gap and ensured the team will swim another day. Durango won the battle with a time of 3:46.32, nipping the Bulldogs’ 3:46.39. But Moffat County’s time was well below

the qualifying time of 3:51, meaning the team will swim again next week at state. “We were quite far behind Durango before the last leg of the relay,” coach Patti Worsley said. “But Cole was right See Swimming, page 14

Penguins, force C h i c a g o ’s Game 7 quick, talented team will make the franchise’s first appearance in the conference finals since 1995. And fittingly, it was the two young stars, Kane and Toews, leading the way before a roaring crowd at the United Center. When Chicago’s Troy Brouwer was called for goaltender interference with just less than 8 minutes remaining, Daniel Sedin scored quickly with a shot from the left circle that put the Canucks ahead 5-4. Kane responded. He got a puck from behind the net and then maneuvered to the side and put a shot under Roberto Luongo to tie the game at 5. Then, 49 seconds later on a power play, Toews worked around the side and tried to pass across the crease to Patrick Sharp. But the puck deflected in off Vancouver’s Alexander Edler with 6:11 left. Kane capped his hat trick with a hard back-hander past Luongo with 3:43 remaining. Chicago’s Nikolai Khabibulin made 33 saves and Luongo 23. Sedin had a pair of goals for Vancouver, which lost the final three games of the series in a disappointing end to what the Canucks hoped would be a run to the Stanley Cup. Vancouver’s Mats Sundin scored to put the Canucks up 4-3 early in the third period, but Adam Burish countered on a nice centering pass from Patrick Sharp to tie the game. The Blackhawks took a 31 lead in the second period on power-play goals by Kris Versteeg and Toews. The Canucks came charging back to tie on scores from Sedin and Shane O’Brien to momentarily quiet the frenzied crowd.

behind him and almost had him at the end.” In the 200-meter freestyle relay, the team placed fourth overall with a time of 1:41.13, which has Patti Worsley feeling confident for next week. “It was right on their best time,” she said. “They had the same time they did last week in our pool, but now they’ll get time to rest. Mesa County Valley School District 51 won the meet with a score of 432 points. Durango was second with 346, and Montrose was third with

301 points. Delta, with 116 points, placed just ahead of Moffat County, which had 96. Glenwood Springs rounded out the meet with a score of 27. Patti Worsley said Moffat County’s score wasn’t because of poor efforts in the pool. “There was a lot of improvement all around — I think all the kids improved in every event,” she said. “We don’t have any divers. Delta was able to get ahead of us because they have divers.” Cole Worsley won the 50meter free with a time of 22.16 seconds, but Patti Worsley said the best is yet to come.

“He hasn’t started to taper yet, so I expect him to do even better next week,” she said. In the 100-meter butterfly, Cole Worsley didn’t just win with a time of 54.46 — he dominated. “He was more than three seconds ahead of the next competitor,” Patti Worsley said. The swimmers will compete in the 800 meter free relay and the 1,600 free relay at the state meet Friday and Saturday in Loveland. Cole Worsley will compete in the 50-meter freestyle and the 100-meter fly at state. He is ranked in the top two for each event.

then missed another — perhaps intentionally — because Anthony got the rebound but didn’t have a timeout left to call or enough time to get off a 90-foot heave. The buzzer sounded and confetti fell as the teams left the court, knowing they will meet again Wednesday night in Denver. The scene was a little calmer than after the end of Game 3, although it may also wind up getting reviewed by the league office because Denver’s Kenyon Martin clearly exchanged words with Dallas owner Mark Cuban. This game had all the inten-

sity of a Game 7, with seven technical fouls and multiple flagrants. There were video reviews and concerns for the safety of Anthony’s wife and Martin’s mom, all of it started by the wacky Game 3 finish, then stoked by a silly elbow from Anthony early in the second quarter. Denver led by 14 and was scoring at will when Anthony tangled arms with Dallas’ Antoine Wright. It was like an alarm clock for the drowsy crowd of 20,523 — and for the Mavericks, who all season have been at their best immediately after hitting rock bottom. It was a quality coach Rick Carlisle expected to see Monday night, even if it showed up more than a quarter late. After the tussle between Anthony and Wright — the main combatants of the Game 3 finish, which the league admitted was botched by officials — Dallas kept getting close, and even tied it three times, but never went in front until Nowitzki’s rainbow over Martin that hit nothing but net. Martin lost the ball on offense, leading to a pair of free throws by Dallas’ Josh Howard. Anthony countered with two foul shots of

his own with 30 seconds left. The Mavericks went back to Nowitzki near the top of the key, guarded by Martin. The big German drew a foul and Martin knew it was his sixth; he went straight to the bench and took a seat, watching Nowitzki sink two more free throws with 8.3 seconds remaining. Then Anthony kept alive hopes of another miracle finish for Denver, somehow escaping the defense enough to make the 3. But the Nuggets were out of tricks. Unable to steal the ball from Terry, they fouled him instead, but it was too late. Denver wasn’t going to pull off the first four-game sweep in franchise history and Dallas avoided getting swept for the first time in a seven-game series. “We’ve still got our hands full,” Nowitzki said. “We’ll let it all rip again and see what happens.” Howard had 21 points and 11 rebounds, and Jason Kidd added 13 points, 10 rebounds and six assists. Terry scored 12 points, Brandon Bass had 11, and J.J. Barea scored 10. Chauncey Billups had 24 points and seven assists, and J.R. Smith had 19 points, including two terrific baskets with the shot clock about to expire in the fourth quarter. Dahntay Jones scored 10, and Martin had only two points and two rebounds in 33 minutes.

Cycling union sets deadline ������������������ Astana team has until May 31 to straighten out finances CYCLING

VALDOBBIADENE, ITALY

Lance Armstrong’s Astana team must straighten out its financial crisis by May 31 or risk being suspended. Astana team manager Johan Bruyneel said Monday that the International Cycling Union sent a warning letter to Kazakhstan’s cycling federation. “That’s the deadline to arrange the whole financial situation. If it’s not taken care of by then, the letter says that the team will be suspended,” Bruyneel said. “At

least we’re going to be able to finish the Giro.” The Giro d’Italia, which Armstrong is racing for the first time, ends May 31. Astana receives most of its financial support from Kazakh state holding company SamrukKazyna, but the Central Asian nation’s economy has been badly hit by the ongoing global financial crisis. The team has not paid its employees lately. UCI president Pat McQuaid was expected to visit Kazakhstan

this week. Armstrong indicated last week that he was talking to U.S.-based sponsors about taking over the team himself. That might be his only solution if he wants to go for an eighth Tour de France title in July. “I’ve already said all I know about Kazakhstan, Astana, Borat. I don’t know anything more,” Armstrong said when last asked about the issue. “It’s not my team, it’s not my sponsor. I’ve got nothing to say about it. I would love to give you an answer, but I don’t have one. I would be speculating.”

Lance Armstrong moved up to fifth place in the Giro d’Italia. His first real test comes with Tuesday’s uphill finish, and the seven-time Tour de France winner isn’t quite sure what to expect. Riding the Giro for the first time, Armstrong has never seen the nearly 8.5-mile climb to San Martino di Castrozza, but he asked top favorite Ivan Basso about it.

“(Basso) expects 10 to 20 guys to be together, then the next day is steeper,” Armstrong said. “Tomorrow’s not that steep. If, like Ivan said, there Armstrong are close to 20 guys, I would think I might be there. Down to five or six guys, I wouldn’t be there right now.” Armstrong avoided a crash in the final miles of Monday’s third stage that ended with Alessandro

VALDOBBIADENE, ITALY

Petacchi of Italy taking the overall lead from Britain’s Mark Cavendish. Armstrong finished in the main pack in 50th place, advancing from 10th in the overall standings. The Texan said he studied Google Earth before the stage to check the finish. “I was trying to figure out that last corner,” he said. Petacchi beat Tyler Farrar, of the United States, and Francesco Gavazzi, of Italy, in a sprint finish in the 123-mile stage. Cavendish was involved in the crash and crossed 1 minute, 25 seconds after the leaders.

Planning and Community Development Director Tom Leeson said the next time planning commissioners see Steamboat 700, it will be to consider the development’s final plans for annexation.

It closed at $6.39 a share Monday, down 56 cents. — To reach Blythe Terrell, call 871-4234 or e-mail bterrell@steamboatpilot.com
