ake a guess at the mostread story of the past year on Steamboatpilot.

com. I’ll give you a hint: It has nothing to do with our sheriff, although he did crack the top 10. In the year beginning May 1, 2008, and ending April 30, 2009, more readers clicked on the tragic story of Bill and Patrick Rooney, who died in a plane crash near Yampa Valley Regional Airport, than any other article. That story has had 13,936 pageviews since its Jan. 13 publication. Whether we like it or not, stories about dramatic accidents and crimes tend to attract the most readers. The media often are faulted for giving too much attention to the tragic or shocking and not enough to the uplifting, but our online readership statistics seem to support the idea that readers have a high interest in that content. It doesn’t make it right or wrong, it just is what it is. In the case of the Rooneys, I think it’s safe to make a couple assumptions. First, Bill and Patrick Rooney touched many lives and thus had many

Second, airplane pilots are a relatively close-knit group, and news involving crashes or mishaps travel quickly and widely throughout the flying community.

Driver ticketed in Bob Bear’s death Craig man could receive 6-point citation, fine for fatal accident Zach Fridell

PILOT & TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Steamboat Springs Police Department officers issued Craig resident Terry Tomey a citation for failure to yield to a pedestrian with disabilities Wednesday, after Tomey struck Robert “Bob” Bear with his pickup May 6. Bear died later that day from injuries sustained hitting his head on the road. Steamboat Springs Police Department Capt. Joel Rae said the Class A traffic infraction carries a six-point driving penalty and $150 in fines if Tomey is found guilty in municipal court. The charge also carries a mandatory appearance in that court. Tomey, 48, was driving a company truck at the time of the accident and on Wednesday said he had a perfect driving record for the past two years with the company. Tomey’s boss could not be reached Wednesday night. “I’m not a monster. I didn’t go and try to run down a schoolteacher. It was a complete accident,” he said. Tomey owned and operated the Windy City Dogs and Beef hotdog stand in Craig with his wife for three years.

Hayden has received a check for sales tax revenue from airport fuel sales, but the amount is less than half what town officials expected. The town estimated that it was owed $60,000 to $70,000 for commercial fuel sales at Yampa Valley Regional Airport during

the last three months of 2008, Town Manager Russ Martin said last month. The town received about $25,000 in sales taxes and penalties, Finance Director Lisa Dowling said Wednesday. “We got a check for $12,680 and then we get an automatic distribution, and I get the reports monthly, and we saw there was a lot of penalties for the back months, which make up the difference,” Dowling said.

Developers hope the Steamboat Springs Planning Commission will make short — and favorable — work of a project previously dubbed too tall an order. Development plans for the Steamboat Highlands project, which the Planning Commission will review tonight, propose a 330,000-square-foot resort condominium development on Burgess Creek Road. The proposed development is 108 feet tall at its highest point, or 45 feet above code in the city’s G-1 zone district. As proposed, Steamboat Highlands would include 136 condos and 14,418 square feet of commercial space. The 2.11-acre project site consists of two lots, and developers also must succeed in rezoning one of the lots from low-density residential to the high density G1 resort zone district. The zoning map amendment and the development plans — as well as the project’s community housing plan — are up for consideration at tonight’s Planning Commission meeting. City planners are recommending approval of three applications, with conditions, but the project has numerous vocal

In exchange for the height variance and also setback variances, the project’s developers are proposing public benefits including the dedication to the city of a 4-acre lot in Overlook Park for affordable housing, economic sustainability in the form of nightly rentals, a building that will earn a silver Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, a day-lighting and restoration of Burgess Creek through the site and a voluntary real estate transfer tax on the project that would be devoted to the city’s base area urban renewal authority. “We want the transfer fee to go to upkeep, maintenance and construction of base-area specific projects,” said Jeremy MacGray, of JSM Builders, local representative for developers Gamir/Reilly Development. “That’s why we See Planning, back page

GOP stresses core principles Lincoln Day Dinner boasts impressive Republican guest list If you go

This year’s Lincoln Day Dinner will be a time for getting back to GOP basics, local Republican Party chairman and retired state Sen. Jack Taylor said. Taylor said Wednesday he expects a lineup of speakers, including the state party chairman and potential gubernatorial hopefuls, to advocate a return to traditional party principles such as small government, low taxes and a trust in the free enterprise system. “I think the main thing is going to be what the Republican Party stands for,” Taylor said. “They’ve worked in the past,

and we need to get back to those basic principles. … We believe that the people believe a free enterprise system can run things better than the government running everything.” Taylor said such principles stand in stark contrast to the current direction of the Obama

administration and majority Democrats in Congress. “We ought to be decreasing debt rather than increasing debt,” Taylor said. “You can’t spend your way out of a recession. … It’s scaring people. … I think (the speakers) will be talking about the opportunity we have” as a party. State Republican Party Chairman Dick Wadhams is the Lincoln Day Dinner’s keynote speaker. “I’m just going to talk about the importance of the 2010 election year, particularly for governor and senator,” Wadhams said Wednesday. “We need to put forth strong candidates. …

Geothermal in play at ski area base Natural heat remains partial solution for promenade snowmelt STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Using geothermal heat to boost a snowmelt system beneath Steamboat’s new ski base promenade is still a possibility. Redevelopment Coordinator Joe Kracum said a hybrid geothermal/natural gas-fired boiler system would be discussed when the Base Area Urban Renewal Area Advisory Committee meets this afternoon at Centennial Hall. The 1 p.m. session is the committee’s first full meeting since Steamboat Springs City Council gave its blessings May 5 for the issuance of $12.5 million in bonds to continue work on public improvements at the base of Steamboat Ski Area during the recession.

“It’s all preliminary at this point,” Kracum said about using geothermal energy for a snowmelt system. “But one thing we’ll look at is using a ground source heat pump as a base level (source of energy) and then using a boiler,” to supply the remaining energy needs. There are many details to be considered before the feasibility of a hybrid system could be confirmed, Kracum added. Such a system would involve higher capital costs, but would offer lower operating costs and reduced carbon emissions throughout the life of the system. Also on the table will be targeted snowmelt areas and the needed mechanical systems. The majority of today’s meeting will be devoted to a discussion of a Burgess Creek diversion structure, which rep-

resents the first step in bringing the creek back above ground from the culvert where it flows beneath the lowest ski slopes, Kracum said. The diversion structure can be likened to an irrigation structure on a ranch, pulling a portion of a stream’s flow out of its channel to water a hay meadow. In this case, only a portion of the Burgess Creek’s seasonal flows — enough to provide a depth of about 6 inches — would be diverted from the underground culvert into a second pipe that would lead to a new streambed, Kracum said. The heavy flows of spring and early summer would remain in the larger culvert. URAAC members met with neighboring property owners and utility company representatives at the site Wednesday.

The hottest item in front of the Oak Creek Town Board isn’t even on the agenda for Thursday’s meeting, but Trustee Dave Ege said police force options are sure to be considered. Routt County Sheriff Gary Wall has presented the Town Board and the Routt County Board of Commissioners with an estimate of how much it would cost for the Routt County Sheriff’s Office to provide complete policing for the town: $306,428.11 per year. Since the town disbanded its police force at the end of 2008, the town has relied on deputies to respond to emergencies, but Wall said it would cost the town more for complete coverage. “Because they are an incorporated municipality, we don’t want to provide the same level of service to people if they don’t pay,” he said. The Sheriff’s Office provides coverage to the town of Yampa

contracting with Wall to provide only partial service, or to hire their own police force. “What we’d like to do is trim back, where we’d have a code enforcement and dog-catcher type situation that we pay for, and then pay them for additional coverage. Obviously $300,000, that’s considerably over our budget. That is our budget, basically,” Mayor J. Elliott said. Ege said that because Oak Creek citizens pay taxes to the county, some level of service should be provided. “They’ll have to make a decision on whether we do a contract with Routt County, whether by statute the county has to provide us law enforcement and whether the county taxes that we pay as citizens can be used as a credit to offset some of these charges,” Ege said. “Or if maybe we don’t have to pay that portion of our county taxes since we will be billed for law enforcement by the county.”

My formal responsibility for the girls at the Rescue Centre is administering the nonprofit college fund that assists them with post-secondary education and job training. But when I am at the centre itself three times a year, I become involved in the day-to-day operations of the centre and the challenges for all Walker of the girls there — young and old — including their education, physical health and emotional well-being. It is unavoidable. When I arrived in Narok at the end of March, the annual rainy season should have been in full downpour. Instead, wheat crops were failing, cattle were dying and there was talk of a

mass exodus of Maasai people to the Maasai Mara where there was some rain. The Rescue Centre relies on rainwater to meet its drinking, washing, cooking and cleaning needs for the 50 or so girls living there. One of the 23,000-liter water tanks at the centre sprung a leak in December and sat empty when I arrived. The other large storage tank had collapsed from years of girls climbing atop it to fetch water; these tanks are not designed to be climbed on. Their purpose is to collect and store water that is pumped to smaller tanks that gravity-feed water to various spigots around the centre. But because water is so scarce, the tanks are often almost empty; the pipes to the pumps too high up the walls of the tank to do any good. Most of the time, girls must fetch water out of the top of the tank with a bucket and rope. So, the Rescue Centre had no storage capacity for water with 50 girls in need of up to 1,000 liters of water a day. Needing to find a solution quickly, I contacted the Rotary Club in Steamboat Springs in hopes that they would donate some of the money needed to purchase and install a 16,000-liter tank at the centre.

COMMENTARY

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

Murder and the media Bob Herbert

THE NEW YORK TIMES

I remember as a young deputy city editor at The Daily News attending my first “sked meeting,” a large gathering of editors held every afternoon to consider which stories would go into the next morning’s paper and how they would be played. I was sitting at the far end of a conference table from the editor who was conducting the meeting. The News had very selHerbert dom had a black person at those gatherings. Mine was the only black face in the room. One of the stories being pitched was about a baby that had been killed on Long Island. The editor running the meeting was completely relaxed. He was sprawled in his chair and was holding a handful of papers. His legs

were crossed. “What color is that baby?” he asked. A tremendous silence fell over the room. Everyone understood what he meant. If the baby was white, the chances were much better that the story was worth big play. It might be something to get excited about. Annoyed at not getting a response, the editor repeated himself. Then his eyes caught mine staring down from the other end of the table. The Daily News has changed radically since those days, and my career flourished there. But that old story came to mind last week as I followed the lavish newspaper and television coverage given to the murder of a 21year-old Wesleyan University student, allegedly by a man who had attended a summer course with her at NYU a couple of years ago. There is no doubt that this was a

tragic and compelling and, thus, newsworthy story. And I’ve long argued that we haven’t paid enough attention to the staggering number of murders committed in this country — well more than 150,000 every 10 years or so. But the press is still very color conscious in the way it goes about covering murder. Editors may not be asking, “What color is that victim?” But, on some level, they’re still thinking it. Which is why we’ve heard so little about an awful story out of Chicago. Some three dozen public school students have been murdered since the school year began, most of them shot to death. These children and teenagers have been killed in a wide variety of settings and situations — while riding a city bus, playing in parks, sitting in the back seats of cars, in gang disputes, in robberies, in the crossfire of sidewalk shootouts. See Herbert, page 9

Do Rush fans get the joke? Clarence Page

TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

Angry Rush Limbaugh fans have their shorts in a knot because Wanda Sykes ridiculed the conservative talk show host’s kidneys. A low blow, to be sure. But where are they, I wonder, when Limbaugh is accusing liberals of treason? With President Obama sitting nearby at last weekend’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, actor-comedian Sykes took a shot Page at Limbaugh’s repeatedly espoused hope that Obama’s policies fail. Sounds like treason to her, she said. “I hope his kidneys fail,” she snapped. “How about that?” Amid gasps, laughs and wary groans from the audience, she further specu-

MALLARD FILLMORE

lated that “maybe Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker, but he was just so strung out on OxyContin, he missed his flight.” Obama flashed what appeared to be a pained smile, then quickly suppressed it. On Monday, his press secretary Robert Gibbs was quick to distance Obama from the drama. “I think there are a lot of topics that are better left for serious reflection rather than comedy,” Gibbs said. “I think there’s no doubt that 9/11 is part of that.” So is kidney failure. Wanda’s kidney punch was less funny than wince-inducing. But her jab at Rush as the “20th hijacker” wasn’t a halfbad recovery, considering its context. In fact, it sounds a lot like the nasty things Limbaugh has said about liberals, Democrats and “drive-by media” folks playing footsy with terrorist thugs — and he doesn’t always sound like he’s kidding.

Among the ample examples collected by the liberal watchdog Web site Media Matters for America, for example, is this prediction from last June: “I will guaran-damn-tee you there will not be a terrorist attack before the election. And you know why there won’t be one? Because they want Obama elected.” Then came this blatantly false claim: “Hamas has endorsed Obama. Hamas has endorsed Obama.” And there’s this smear from April of last year: “... Islamofascists are actually campaigning for the election of Democrats. Islamofascists from (Iranian President Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad to (al-Qaida leader Ayman) al-Zawahiri ... Osama bin Laden, whoever, are constantly issuing Democrat talking points.” But does anybody really take Rush See Page, page 9 Bruce Tinsley

Slaughter of children worthy of coverage

For sake of GOP, I hope Cheney was joking Page continued from 8 seriously? Limbaugh “megaditto” fans write to me regularly, especially when I write about Limbaugh, with mixed messages: He’s just an entertainer, ha, ha, they insist, so don’t take him seriously — except when he really wants you to. But seriously. With the regular Republican Party’s leadership in disarray these days, a strong conservative voice like Limbaugh’s gets taken seriously, like it or not. All of which reminds me of a recent probe by The Ohio State University into perceptions of the deep satire of Stephen Colbert. The host of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” never breaks character from his stuffy conservative “Stee-phen!,” even when he interviews guests. But how many of his viewers miss the joke? Conservatives, the study found, were more likely

to report that Colbert “only pretends to be joking and genuinely means what he said,” including his dislike for liberals. Liberals, the study found, were more likely to report that Colbert was just being satirical, ha, ha. Don’t take him seriously. Nation, as Colbert might say, I would not read too much into that report. I will not charge conservatives with irony deficiency. That calls for further study. For now, I will only observe that Stephen Colbert has stumbled onto a gold mine. He has managed to persuade both sides of our vast political divide that beneath his shenanigans he’s really, wink, wink, on your side! Brilliant. With people skills like that, he could follow Obama to the White House. Few would say the same of Dick Cheney. The former vice president was asked on CBS’

“Face the Nation” Sunday about Limbaugh. El Rushbo had said Republicans would be better off if Colin Powell became a Democrat. “If I had to choose in terms of being a Republican,” Cheney decided. “I’d go with Rush Limbaugh. I think my take on it was Colin had already left the party. I didn’t know he was still a Republican.” Cheney broke into that little lop-sided smile of his. I think he was joking. For the sake of the Grand Old Party’s future, I hope so. Powell served with Cheney in two administrations. He endorsed Obama on national television, but he has not left the Republican Party. About one-fifth of self-described Republicans voted for Obama, according to exit polls. They didn’t all leave their party, either. It’s up to the party to decide whether it wants to leave them. No joke.

been precious little coverage elsewhere. The killings during this school year are an acceleration of the slaughter of previous years. Back in 2007, I got a letter from a woman named Rita Sallie, whose 13year-old daughter, Schanna Gayden, was shot to death in a Chicago playground by a thug who was aiming at someone else. “I cannot accept the fact that she is gone,” Sallie wrote, “or the way that she was taken from me and those who love her. I wish you could have known her.” I spoke to Sallie by phone the other night. We talked about the latest round of killings, and about Schanna. “Oh gosh, that kid was funny,” she said. “She was so ...” Her voice trailed off and several moments passed before she could stop herself from weeping.

It’s an immense and continuing tragedy. But these were nearly all African-American or Latino kids, so the coverage has been scant. In contrast, the news media gave the public enormous amounts of information about the Wesleyan student, Johanna Justin-Jinich, and — in another big story — about Julissa Brisman, the masseuse who had advertised on Craigslist and was killed in a Boston hotel room last month. It’s a searing double-standard that tells us volumes about the ways in which we view one another and whose lives are considered to have value in this society and whose are not. Another disturbing aspect of the coverage is the extreme prurient interest that drives it. The press goes wild about stories about murderous attacks on women who are

young, attractive and white. A closer look at how and why the news media covers some of these stories is overdue. I’d like to see more coverage, not less, of murderous violence in the U.S. But I’d like that coverage to be much broader, more meaningful and less sensationalized. It’s important to give readers and viewers some insight into the real lives of murder victims like Justin-Jinich, a talented student whose promise was extinguished in an act of madness, because it helps us to understand the absolute horror of murder and why we need to do much more to stop it. But why overlook the humanity of so many others because of their ethnic background or economic circumstances? Surely the slaughter of dozens of Chicago schoolchildren is worthy of wide national coverage. CNN has covered the story, but there has

News in brief Preliminary hearing for Marie Jensen is June 8

A preliminary hearing for Marie Jensen, who is accused of growing and selling marijuana from her Ninth Street house, is scheduled for 10 a.m. June 8. Jensen, represented by her lawyer Kris Hammond, appeared Wednesday before Judge James Garrecht at the Routt County Justice Center to

request a preliminary hearing in the case. Jensen faces charges including a Class 3 felony, which entitles her to a preliminary hearing. A hearing for Jensen’s trust, charged separately with cultivation, will follow on June 8, but because the charge against the trust is Class 4, there will be no preliminary hearing, said Erick Knaus, attorney for the trust. Jensen’s trust owns the home

� � � �� ��� ���������

where marijuana was allegedly grown. A felony summons was issued Feb. 24 for Jensen, in connection with the marijuana operation discovered Feb. 7. Investigators said they seized 48 marijuana plants and about 8 pounds of dried and processed marijuana from the home. Jensen reportedly has a medical marijuana license, but investigators say she was in possession of more marijuana than allowed by law.

URA absorbed some of city’s sales tax loss percent of the city’s overall sales tax decrease in March, from $2.6 million last year to $2 million this year, or a drop of 22.5 percent. If there is any silver lining in the fact that the base area accounted for much of the decline, it is that the city’s urban renewal authority in that area absorbed some of the loss — thus limiting the city’s general fund to a March decrease of 17 percent. Within its base area boundaries, the URA collects sales and property tax increments above a 2004 base level. So far this year, sales tax collections within the URA are down $195,000 from 2004, and the URA has not received a sales tax increment. “This is the first time that has occurred since 2004,” Weber said. By category, the lodging sector saw the largest percentage and dollar-amount sales tax decrease in March. Sales tax collections from lodging establishments fell $286,000, 35 percent, from $828,000 in March 2008 to $542,000 in March 2009. Last month, Resort Group Vice President Larry Mashaw told the Steamboat Springs City Council that “Summer looks as challenging as winter, if not more, based on some early numbers.” Other industries, howev-

Right now, it seems to be firming up.” Steinke’s observations are confirmed by figures released Wednesday by the U.S. Commerce Department, which reported that total retail sales fell 0.4 percent in April. Vehicles and parts sales, however, increased 0.2 percent in April, according to the Commerce Department, recovering from a 2 percent dip in March. Two downtown restaurant owners claimed Wednesday that

their sales actually increased in March. Brian Vaughn of bistro c.v. attributed his restaurant’s increase in sales to the fact it was open seven days a week this year, compared with five days a week last year. Vaughn also noted that last winter was bistro’s c.v.’s first. Colleen Miller of Sunpie’s Bistro said the fact her business increased might suggest that while restaurant sales are declining overall, remaining customers might be migrating to less expensive options. “Of course we’re concerned,” Miller said, “but I think the more expensive places in town have more to worry about than us.” — To reach Brandon Gee, call 871-4210 or e-mail bgee@steamboatpilot.com

Two local families have opened a donation account for Craig resident Ricky Bustad, 37, who was hospitalized after crashing his motorcycle Monday west of Hayden. Richard and Gayle Kendall, and Roger and Betty Miesner, longtime friends of Bustad’s extended family, opened an account at Bank of the West in Craig on his behalf to help with medical costs. Bustad was traveling west on U.S. Highway 40 about 7:20 p.m. Monday when he apparently lost control of his 1994 Harley-Davidson FLSTN motorcycle and went off the right side of the road, according to a Colorado State Patrol report. He was not wearing a helmet and sustained head injuries after striking two signs before landing in a patch of bushes. Law enforcement officials do not think drugs or alcohol played a role in the accident. Gayle Kendall and Betty Miesner said Bustad remains in intensive care at Denver Health and probably will be permanently paralyzed from the chest down.

■ Residents who wish to make a donation can do so by making a deposit in Ricky Bustad’s name at Bank of the West, 139 E. Victory Way. ■ Cards and well wishes also can be sent to Amy Bustad, in care of Carolyn Moehle, 6853 Moore St., Arvada, CO 80006.

He underwent his second surgery Wednesday and is expected to remain in intensive care for the next couple of weeks. Kendall and Miesner added doctors still don’t know whether he’ll be able to use his arms once released, but he can move his fingers now. Bustad, who is employed at Cook Chevrolet, is married to Amy (Cox) Bustad. The couple has three children between 5 months and 8 years old. “They’re like family without blood,” Kendall said of the couple and their children. “They have nothing. They have no insurance.” Residents who wish to make a donation can do so by making a deposit in Ricky Bustad’s name at Bank of the West, 139 E. Victory Way.

been asked to find more cuts. “We should get most of our sales tax revenues in the big months of December, January, February, March and then our revenues go down from the airport, so our percentage is less,” Dowling said. The town had hoped for more revenue from those fuel sales. ConocoPhillips took over commercial fuel sales at YVRA last fall. It paid sales tax to the Colorado Department of Revenue, which held the money because of confusion about where it was supposed to go. ConocoPhillips paid its taxes in full, spokesman Bill Stephens said. For its first three months, the company had kinks in its reporting system that resulted in those payments not getting disbursed, he said. ConocoPhillips has changed systems and resolved the problems, he said. “We did all along make the payments,” Stephens said. “It’s just that it was not properly credited to Hayden.” Hayden officials have confirmed that everything’s run smoothly since Jan. 1. The town has requested an audit of ConocoPhillips to make sure the amount remitted is correct, Dowling said. The town expected $60,000 to $70,000 based on fuel sales in previous years, Dowling said.

aircraft, sold more fuel Dec. 27 than had ever been sold in a day for private aviation at YVRA. “We would just feel more comfortable knowing that those numbers are correct based on the number of gallons of jet fuel sold,” Dowling said. “We know the amount of flights increased. … Jet fuel is sold for a lower amount per gallon, but we’re still not convinced it’s that much lower per gallon to make up the difference.” State revenue officials told the town they planned to audit ConocoPhillips, which could take 36 months, she said. “The audit will tell all, and we can’t make assumptions until that’s done,” Dowling said. Stephens said he couldn’t reach anyone to confirm whether an audit was happening. “If an audit is called for, certainly we’ll cooperate,” Stephens said. “No question about it; our policy is to comply.” Revenue Department spokesman Mark Couch said state law prohibited him from confirming or commenting on audits of specific taxpayers. He would not comment on the ConocoPhillips situation. “Paying taxes is not always as easy as people might think,” Couch said. “A lot of people think it’s as simple as writing a check and paying it in, and especially when it gets to large sums and large corporate types of taxes with multiple jurisdictions involved, it gets particularly complicated.”

I think we’ve got to draw a very clear contrast with the record of the two incumbents.” Other special guests expected to attend and possibly speak briefly at the Routt County Republican Central Committee’s annual fundraiser are state Sen. Al White, R-Hayden; state Senate Minority Leader Josh Penry, R-Grand Junction; state Rep. Randy Baumgardner, R-Hot Sulphur Springs; 14th Judicial District Attorney Elizabeth Oldham; Routt County Commissioner Nancy Stahoviak; Routt County Clerk and Recorder Kay Weinland; Routt County Treasurer Jeanne Whiddon; Routt County Coroner Rob Ryg and former Colorado Congressman Scott McInnis. “I don’t know what McInnis is going to say, but from what I understand, he’s seriously considering running for governor,” Taylor said. Wadhams said Penry is another strong potential candidate for the governor’s office.

White said he plans to provide attendees with an overview of the recently concluded state legislative session and explain major legislation that passed and what it will mean for Routt County. The local Republican Party also has invited Congressman Mike Coffman, R-Aurora, the former Colorado secretary of state who was elected to national office in November, and state Attorney General John Suthers. The two have not confirmed whether they will attend. “Unfortunately, we don’t have a Republican congressman in this neck of the woods,” Taylor said, “so we decided if (Coffman) could come, let’s have him come and explain what’s going on over there in Washington.” Friday’s dinner will include a social hour with a cash bar, live and silent auctions, a special presentation by Simone Potter and dinner. Attendees are asked to take a potluck side dish; the party will provide meat and bread. — To reach Brandon Gee, call 871-4210 or e-mail bgee@steamboatpilot.com

Road to the Maroon Bells to open May 21 THE ASPEN TIMES STAFF

ASPEN

Maroon Creek Road leading up to Maroon Lake and the Maroon Bells will reopen for the summer May 21, according to the U.S. Forest Service. The opening will coincide with the Colorado Department of Transportation’s schedule to open the gates to Colorado Highway 82 over Independence Pass, east of Aspen. Both the pass gate and the gate to the Bells will be unlocked at 2 p.m., weather permitting. Bicyclists and pedestrians can go beyond both gates now. Vehicular access to the Bells on May 21 is free. Starting May 22, the entrance station along Maroon Creek Road will be staffed during peak hours. Those driving vehicles past the gate will be asked to pay a $5 recreation use fee — half the usual $10 price because limited services will be available at the lake early in the season. Once the water is turned on, trash collection begins and visitor services at the lake are up to full summer standards — sometime in early June — the $10

fee will take effect. Ten bucks buys a 5-day Maroon Bells pass. Although the water won’t be turned on yet, the restrooms at Maroon Lake will be clean and open when the gate opens May 21, according to the Aspen Ranger District. The facilities offer composting toilets. A locals season pass to the Bells this season will cost $25. The three campgrounds along Maroon Creek Road — Silver Bar, Silver Bell and Silver Queen — will open for the season May 22. The nightly fee will again be $15. Starting June 20, motorized vehicle access to the lake is restricted daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and visitors will be directed to take a Roaring Fork Transportation Authority bus to the Bells from Aspen Highlands, located on Maroon Creek Road. Parking at Highlands is free, but there is a fee to ride the bus — $6 for adults and $4 for children and seniors. New this season is a Wednesday special — $3 to ride the bus to the Bells for everyone, according to RFTA, but the discounted tickets must

be purchased and used on Wednesdays. They’ll be available at the Rubey Park bus station in downtown Aspen and at Highlands. The $10 fee for motorized vehicle access will be charged at the entrance station from 7 to 9 a.m. and from 5 to 7 p.m. once bus service begins June 20. The $25 season pass is good during these hours.

Man picking up trash finds pipe bomb in Vail Valley VAIL DAILY STAFF

VAIL VALLEY

A pipe bomb was disabled by a bomb squad Tuesday evening in a secluded part of a Vail Valley area that is popular with campers. A man picking up trash at about mile 5 of the Homestake Access Road on Sunday told authorities he picked up a metal pipe, realized it might be a bomb and threw it in the water. The U.S. Forest Service notified the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. The Jefferson County Bomb

Squad responded, found the pipe bomb in the water and disabled it. Authorities searched the area where the bomb was found and found nothing else suspicious. Authorities could not say Tuesday how big an explosion the bomb might have produced had it detonated. “It was in a secluded area so the chance of public contact was minimal,” said Shannon Cordingly, a spokeswoman for the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office. U.S. Forest Service officials said they received a report about two years ago that someone was blowing up beaver dams in the same area, which is between Red Cliff and Leadville. A person found in possession of a pipe bomb could be charged with illegal use of an explosive, Cordingly said. The Sheriff’s Office asks anyone who comes in contact with an explosive or anything suspicious, to immediately leave the area without touching or moving the item, move a safe distance away, then call 911.

Organizers lay down rules for cruisin’ in Carbondale THE ASPEN TIMES

CARBONDALE

Organizers of what’s become a popular monthly happening that brings scores of bicycle enthusiasts out for a cruise up and down Carbondale streets beneath the light of the full moon are having to establish some cruiser guidelines. Rhonda Roberts, an unofficial spokeswoman for the group known as The StomParillaz, which began the cruiser rides about three years ago, acknowledged that a few “issues” arose during a particularly large Saturday night cruiser ride that was estimated at about 300 riders. “It’s always been a pretty widely accepted event in town,” she said. “But I think that every once in a while there’s maybe too much alcohol involved. “We want people to know that’s not the focus of the ride, and that it’s meant as a way to get out and see your friends, make new friends and have fun,” Roberts said.

Recession. Unemployment. Swine flu. Now’s the time for an inspiring story about one headless chicken’s will to live. Residents of Fruita, a western Colorado town of 11,000, are holding their 12th annual festival this weekend for a chicken named Miracle Mike who, according to legend, lived 18 months after a farmer lopped off his head with an ax but left his brain stem, a jugular vein and one ear intact. Grisly to some, perhaps. But Miracle Mike’s celebrity has spread abroad, with enthusiasts as far away as Venezuela, Puerto Rico, England and Wales.

Inside, Chaney was shot in the pelvis and Lindsay in the throat, and the force of an enemy grenade sent those two flying back out through the doorway. The blast of that grenade threw Halbisen-Gibbs into a corner inside the building. “I felt an amazing blow to my midsection that took me off my feet,” Lindsay said. He was vomiting and hyperventilating, too weak to get up or even hold his rifle, so he rolled over, pulled out his handgun and began firing toward the insurgents.

Word quickly spread about the miracle chicken. The local newspaper ran a story, and soon a promoter from Salt Lake City, Hope Wade, contacted the Olsens.

Native fish make comeback LAKEWOOD

Biologists have found endangered fish in parts of the Colorado and Yampa rivers where they haven’t been seen in decades. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says a 26-inch adult male Colorado pikeminnow was captured in April in the Colorado River near Grand Junction. Also in April, Colorado State University researchers captured a 17-inch adult razorback sucker in the Yampa River about 7 miles upstream of Dinosaur National Monument in northwest Colorado. Both fish are on the federal endangered species list. Biologists are trying to rebuild the populations of the pikeminnow, razorback sucker, humpback chub and bonytail. All the fish are natives of the Colorado River system whose numbers have dropped because of dams and nonnative fish. The pikeminnow was captured as part of the Upper Colorado River Endangered Fish Recovery program’s research into how many of the fish exist.

AROUND COLORADO District gets 1st non-black senator in at least 50 years DENVER

An education reformer chosen to replace Colorado Senate President Peter Groff will be the first white lawmaker to represent a largely minority district in at least 50 years. A vacancy committee selected Mike Johnston on Monday night to fill out Groff’s term representing northeast Denver. Johnston beat three black candidates, including former state Rep. Rosemary Marshall, who had the backing of House Speaker Terrance Carroll. Johnston, 33, is a Vail native who studied at Harvard and Yale. He’s the founder and principal of Mapleton Expeditionary School of the Arts in Thornton, which President Barack Obama visited during a campaign stop last year. Obama praised the school, which sent all 44 graduates on to college. Johnston won 64 of the 126 vacancy committee votes, 23 votes ahead of Marshall, who finished second. Businessman

Anthony Graves got 18, and community activist Renee Blanchard got none. In 2000, the U.S. Census reported that Senate District 33 was 35 percent black, 31 percent Hispanic and 28.8 percent white. Since then, the redevelopment of the former Stapleton airport has increased the number of white residents in the district.

Gov. Bill Ritter questions repeal of drilling tax credit DENVER

Gov. Bill Ritter is asking congressional leaders to carefully consider the effects of the proposed repeal of a tax break for the oil and gas industry. In a letter Wednesday to the heads of the Senate Finance and House Ways and Means committees, Ritter says eliminating a tax deduction for intangible drilling costs could further discourage new oil and gas exploration and development. Colorado’s oil and gas industry, which has scaled back amid dropping prices and tight credit, has clashed with the Ritter administration about new, stricter regulations. Some in the industry say the regulations have discouraged investment in Colorado.

Intel hit with $1.45B fine by EU President seeks to Commissioner: Company has harmed millions of consumers block abuse photos Jordan Robertson THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO

Intel was fined a record $1.45 billion by the European Union on Wednesday for using strongarm sales tactics in the computer chip market — a penalty that could turn up the pressure on U.S. regulators to go after the company, too. The fine against the world’s biggest chip maker represents a huge victory for Intel’s Silicon Valley rival, Advanced Micro Devices, the No. 2 supplier of microprocessors to PC makers. AMD has sued Intel and lobbied regulators around the world for the past five years, complaining that Intel was penalizing PC makers in the U.S. and abroad for doing business with AMD. Although the U.S. Federal Trade Commission also is investigating, AMD seems to have found its most sympathetic ear in Europe. EU Competition Commissioner Neelie Kroes said Intel has harmed millions of European consumers by “deliberately acting to keep competitors out of the market.” “Intel did not compete fairly, frustrating innovation and reducing consumer welfare in the process,” she said.

The commission told Intel punishment in the U.S. remains to immediately stop some sales to be seen. But the EU’s fine practices in Europe, though it against Intel could push the wouldn’t say what those were. issue to the forefront for the Intel said it was “mystified” Obama administration. about what it “If there was was supposed to ever a time not “This is really change but would to appear to be a just a matter of comply while it large firm behavcompetition at work, ing badly, this appeals the fine. which is something I would be it, as the The Santa financial collapse Clara, Calif., comthink we all want pany also defended has the U.S. and to see, versus its sales practices EU competing for something nefarious.” which government — which include rebates to big Intel is the most proacPaul Otellini tively protecting customers — as Intel CEO consumer rights,” legitimate. warned Rob End“This is really just a matter of competition erle, a technology industry at work, which is something I analyst. “This judgment makes think we all want to see, ver- Intel the ball in what is likely sus something nefarious,” Intel an international game of oneCEO Paul Otellini said in a upmanship.” conference call with reporters.

Barack Obama concerned pictures could ‘further inflame anti-American opinion’ Jennifer Loven

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON

President Barack Obama declared Wednesday he would try to block the court-ordered release of photos showing U.S. troops abusing prisoners, abruptly reversing his position out of concern the pictures would “further inflame anti-American opinion” and endanger U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. The White House had said last month it would not oppose the release of dozens of photos from military investigations of alleged misconduct. But American commanders in the war zones have expressed deep concern about fresh damage the photos might do, especially as the U.S. tries to wind down the Iraq war and step up operations against the Taliban and al-Qaida in Afghanistan. Obama, realizing how high emotions run on detainee treatment during the Bush administration and now, made it a point to personally explain his change of heart, stopping to address TV cameras late in the day as he left the White House for a flight to Arizona. He said the photos had already

“The most direct consequence of releasing them, I believe, would be to Barack further inflame Obama anti-American opinion and to put our troops in greater danger.” served their purpose in investigations of “a small number of individuals.” Those cases were all concluded by 2004, and the president said “the individuals who were involved have been identified, and appropriate actions have been taken.” Obama’s reversal on the photo release set off immediate reactions from bloggers, liberals who decried that he was buckling to political pressure and conservatives who agreed with the decision but said it proved Obama was a flip-flopper. One Huffington Post blogger called the decision “a terrible mistake” and declared that Obama had buckled under pressure from former Vice President Dick Cheney. When photos emerged in 2004 from the infamous U.S.-run Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, showing grinning American soldiers posing with detainees — some of the prisoners naked, some being held on leashes — the pictures caused a huge anti-American backlash around the globe, particularly in the Muslim world. The Pentagon conducted 200 investigations into alleged abuse connected with the photos that are now in question. The administration did not provide an immediate accounting of how they turned out. “This is not a situation in which the Pentagon has concealed or sought to justify inappropriate action,” Obama said about the photos. “In fact, the most direct consequence of releasing them, I believe, would be to further inflame anti-American opinion and to put our troops in greater danger.” The Justice Department filed a notice of its new position on the release, including that it was considering an appeal with the Supreme Court. The government has until June 9 to do so. Obama said, “I want to emphasize that these photos that were requested in this case are not particularly sensational, especially when compared to the painful images that we remember from Abu Ghraib.”

Retail sales dip causes worries Economists say families are spending less, delaying recovery WASHINGTON

Retail sales fell in April for a second straight month, dashing hopes that consumer spending was starting to revive and would help end the recession. Economists said families who are worried about layoffs and unpaid job furloughs are saving more and spending less, delaying the start of a sustained recovery. The disappointing report helped send stocks down on Wall Street, where the Dow Jones industrial average slid 184 points — more than 2 percent. Other major indexes fell even more sharply. Retail sales fell 0.4 percent last month, worse than the flat performance many economists had expected, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. Retail sales had posted gains in January and February after falling for six straight months. The gains had raised hopes that the crucial consumer sector of the economy might be stabilizing. But the setbacks in March and April retail sales cast doubts on

that prospect. “People are obviously still very nervous and not spending,” said David Wyss, chief economist at Standard & Poor’s in New York. “The economy is still in a recession, and I don’t think we will hit bottom until late summer or early fall.” Meanwhile, more than 342,000 households received at least one foreclosure-related notice in April, up 32 percent from the same month last year, RealtyTrac reported Wednesday. April was the second straight month with more than 300,000 households receiving a foreclosure filing. Analysts said the economy should benefit in coming months from the tax relief included in the $787 billion stimulus plan Congress passed in February. But the extra $17 a week that the average family will receive won’t translate into a major boost in spending. Such modest relief is hardly enough to negate the effects of layoffs and employee furloughs, shrunken retirement accounts and home equity, and consumers struggling to boost savings because of fears about

the future. Mary Goodman has stopped most of her extraneous spending — like meals out. She reined in her spending habits after March 1, when she was laid off from her job as an office manager at an online job posting company in Milwaukee. Now the 60-year-old Goodman eats out just once a week with a former co-worker, a trip that included soup at an indoor market on Wednesday afternoon. “I’m not doing any clothes shopping,” she said. “I’m not tempting myself by going into the mall.”

Since the money was so intertwined, Picard has argued to a Manhattan bankruptcy judge that it would be more efficient and economical to consolidate separate efforts to identify and liquidate Madoff’s business and personal assets. A hearing is set for May 21. The trustee has frozen Madoff’s bank accounts, sold off legitimate portions of his business and filed lawsuits to reclaim ill-gotten gains. The money will be used to pay claims brought by thousands of burned investors.

The credit card bill is a 30page study in conspicuous consumption. A quick scan shows a restaurant charge of more than $2,800, $2,000 in spending at a Parisian boutique and $441 at a gourmet bagel shop. The total amount due: more than $100,000. Eye-popping numbers aside, the American Express statement from January 2008 has taken on broader meaning because of the notorious name on the corporate account: Bernard L. Madoff. And the vast majority of the charges aren’t even his; they

The bill is among a pile of exhibits filed recently in a Manhattan bankruptcy court by Irving Picard, the courtappointed trustee who is dissecting Madoff’s massive Ponzi scheme. Lawyers for the trustee claim in accompanying court papers that the credit card statement and other records prove Madoff’s family used his clients’ money to pay for homes, travel, fancy meals and other personal expenses. The admitted swindler treated Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities “as his personal bank account, taking funds when he needed them and transferring

Deterred by immigration laws and the lackluster economy, the population growth of Hispanics and Asians in the U.S. has slowed unexpectedly, causing the government to push back estimates on when minorities will become the majority by as much as a decade. Census data released Thursday also showed that fewer Hispanics were migrating to suburbs and newly emerging immigrant areas in the Southeast, including Arkansas, Tennessee and Georgia, staying put instead in traditional gateway locations such as California.

new immigrant destinations in the Southeast, previously seen as offering good manufacturing jobs in lower-cost cities compared to the pricier Northeast. In contrast, cities in California, Illinois and New Jersey showed gains. In Arkansas, manufacturing and poultry companies have cut hours and workers, leaving a growing number of Hispanics unable to cover their mortgage payments, said Maribel Tapia, a housing counselor in Fayetteville, Ark. Fathers are moving out of state, where other relatives have lines on menial jobs that support the families they leave behind, she said. Police in northwest Arkansas created an immigration task force with the help of U.S. immigration agents.

The nation’s overall minority population continues to rise steadily, adding 2.3 percent in 2008 to 104.6 million, or 34 percent of the total population. But the slowdown among Hispanics and Asians continues to shift conventional notions on when the tipping point in U.S. diversity will come — estimated to occur more than three decades from now. Black growth rates remain somewhat flat. Thirty-six states had lower Hispanic growth in 2008 compared with the year before. The declines were in places where the housing bubble burst, such as Nevada and Arizona, which lost construction jobs that tend to attract immigrants. Other decreases were seen in

Lower immigration slows minority growth

����������������������������������� ������������� ����������������� ���������

The White House scrambled to unify Democrats behind a single health care appeal Wednesday — lower costs, plenty of choice — amid concerns Republicans could scare votes away with images of a ghastly system run by bureaucrats. A key senator pushed to enforce an offer from care providers to trim $2 trillion in costs during the next decade. Finance Committee Chairman Sen. Max Baucus, DMont., said he wanted to build cost-saving mechanisms the industry is devising into sweeping health care overhaul legisla-

bring legislation to the House floor by August. “We’ve got to get it done this year,” Obama said. “We don’t have any excuses; the stars are aligned.” The developments underscored a quickening drive toward health care overhaul legislation in Congress. Obama has asked the health insurers, doctors, hospitals and others who brought the muchballyhooed — but vague — $2 trillion cost-saving idea to the White House earlier this week to produce specifics by June 1. “I met with them today and reminded them of their pledge to the president,” Baucus said, adding that he’d aim to give their plans the force of law.

BETHLEHEM, WEST BANK

Pope Benedict XVI made a powerful plea Wednesday for a Palestinian state, mixing prayer and politics at Jesus’ birthplace and expressing solidarity at a refugee camp with “all the homeless Palestinians who long to be able to return to their birthplace.” At the Aida refugee camp, the pope spoke in the shadow of the massive concrete barrier that divides Israelis and Palestinians and urged both sides to resist the urge for revenge and find the courage needed for peace. The high-profile visit provided a forum for Palestinians to vent their rage over the Israeli occupation, and Benedict said he understood their frustration. But he urged young people in particular to “have the courage to resist any temptation to resort to acts of violence or terrorism,”

his first mention of terrorism since he began his Middle East tour Friday. At each stop during his 10hour stay in the West Bank, Benedict XVI Benedict said much of what the Palestinians were hoping to hear, including giving assurances of his “deep compassion and remembrance in prayer” for those killed by the Israeli offensive in Gaza. Arriving in Bethlehem from nearby Jerusalem, Benedict, 82, was driven through a gate in the 25-foot-high concrete wall, part of the separation barrier Israel has erected along the West Bank and calls key to its security. “Our pope is our hope” read posters hung around the town, also dotted with yellow and cream flags of the Vatican and red, black, white and green

Palestinian flags. At the nearby Aida refugee camp, the pope said the looming barbed wire and concrete structure served as a “stark reminder” of the tense situation. The refugee camp, where about 5,000 Palestinians live, is next to the towering wall, and residents had wanted Benedict to speak from a stage next to it to highlight life under Israeli occupation. But the Israeli government ordered a halt to construction of the stage, saying organizers lacked the necessary permits and the site’s proximity to the wall posed a security risk. “Even if walls can easily be built, we know they don’t last forever. They can be demolished,” the German-born pontiff told the crowd. “First of all, however, it is necessary to remove the walls that we build around our hearts,” he said.

Religious minorities report violence KARACHI, PAKISTAN

Fauzia Abrar had finally gotten her crying baby to sleep when screaming men pounded on the steel doors of her home in the mostly Christian slum in the port city of Karachi. Suddenly she heard shots, and the screaming grew louder: “Long live Taliban! Death to infidels!” The men forced their way into her house, hurled loose tiles and a glass at her and fired a shot. She fainted. As the Taliban gains a stronger foothold in Pakistan,

increasingly violent assaults against religious minorities are further evidence of its growing power and influence. While the Taliban does not carry out all of the attacks, extremist elements inspired by the group will sometimes act in its name. These attacks add to the instability of an already highly unstable country and also show how Pakistan, supposed to be a U.S. ally in the fight against Islamic extremism, is now itself increasingly threatened by extremists. In dozens of interviews from Karachi to Peshawar, Christians, Sikhs and Hindus told of attacks and threats and

expressed an overwhelming sense of fear. Minority Rights Group International, a watchdog organization, ranked Pakistan last year as the world’s top country for major increases in threats to minorities from 2007 — along with Sri Lanka, which is embroiled in civil war. The group lists Pakistan as seventh on the list of 10 most dangerous countries for minorities, after Somalia, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Myanmar and Congo. “In Pakistan today there is a lot of feeling of fear by all the minorities,” said the Rev. Richard D’Souza of St. Jude Church in Karachi. “We feel we have no protection.”

Stocks fall on weak retail sales, foreclosure jump THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK

Investors are looking at the economy more skeptically. Stocks retreated more than 2 percent Wednesday and bond prices increased after two reports suggested the economy is not bouncing back as quickly as investors hoped. The Commerce Department said retail sales unexpectedly fell in April for the second straight

month, while RealtyTrac reported a troubling rise in home foreclosures. Investors are mindful that the Dow Jones industrial average spiked 31 percent from its early March lows — the biggest jump in such a short span since the 1930s. After Wednesday’s decline, the index is still up 26.5 percent from March 9, but investors now are wondering whether the market will see a sharper pullback. Analysts say a drop of 10

percent from the market’s recent peak would hardly be surprising, especially since recent economic readings have failed to beat forecasts. “Overall, it’s just a market that’s due for a pause, due for a pullback, due for consolidation,” said Quincy Krosby, chief investment strategist for The Hartford. “You don’t want markets to skyrocket. The higher you go, the deeper you fall.” Few analysts, however, anticipate the stock market to sink

lower than it did in March. “What we’ve done over the past month-and-a-half is remove this idea of Armageddon,” said Charlie Smith, chief investment officer at Fort Pitt Capital. The Dow fell 184.22, or 2.2 percent, to 8,284.89. Broader stock indicators sank even more sharply. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 24.43, or 2.7 percent, to 883.92, while the Nasdaq composite index declined 51.73, or 3 percent, to 1,664.19.

�������������������������������������

The decline put the S&P 500, a widely used barometer for mutual funds and professional investors alike, back into the negative column for the year to date. The S&P edged above that level May 4. During the market’s twomonth advance, investors grew accustomed to data indicating that the economy, while not growing, was at least bottoming out. This week, unexpectedly worse data has thrown a wrench into the works.

The eyes of many of the Yampa Valley’s athletes may be firmly focused on the roaring river or the drying mountain bike trails. But that isn’t likely to stop some of the nation’s top cross country ski competitors, headed to Steamboat Springs for the next two weeks to work on lingering snow on Rabbit Ears Pass. The U.S. Adaptive Cross Country Ski Team will participate in a spring camp starting Friday and running through May 28. Able-bodied skiers will join them midway through the venture and continue working through June 2. “We’re going to milk this as long as we can,” U.S. Ski Team coach Greg Rawlings said. “The snow is still awesome. It’s dirty snow, but there’s a ton — still 4 or 5 feet.” Most of the camp’s skiing will take place on Bruce’s Trail, often one of the first cross country trails in the state to receive enough snow and one of the last to see it melt away. These won’t be any lazy spring afternoons, either. With the 2010 Olympics — the traditional and para- variety — looming less than a year away, athletes won’t be playing around. “I’m going to get a lot out of it,” adaptive cross country skier Chris Klebl said. “May is as crucial a month as any other.” Rawlings said May provides a chance for athletes to refine their form without the pressure of a race looming a few days away. “We will shoot a lot of video,” he said. “We can go a little slower and work on technique more. During the summer, they will attach their sit-skis to a mountain board, a skateboard with tires, and double-pull around roads and bike paths. If they See Camp, page 26

Manzanares said the key for Hayden’s team will be to remain calm on the biggest stages — something that shouldn’t be a problem considering most of Hayden’s athletes have been here before. One concern is Walker, who is running on an injured knee. The junior has four prelim races today — the 100, 200, 100 relay and 200 relay. “We’ll just have to see with Jake,” Manzanares said. “He’s

Olivia Gorr didn’t start playing hockey until three years ago. Even then, she only picked up the sport on the advice of a couple of friends. Now, the 14-year-old Steamboat Springs Middle School student has skated right past those buddies — and nearly every other competitor she’s come across. A fixture on Steamboat’s U14 and U19 girls teams, Olivia recently was selected to take part in the national hockey team tryouts. She was one of only 45 14year-old girls nationwide to earn that right. “I’m super excited,” Olivia said. “I didn’t expect this at all. I just tried hard.” The camp is set for the middle of July in Rochester, N.Y. To get a crack at the national camp, Olivia first had to make her way through two other camps and be selected from their massive numbers to move on. Steamboat Springs High School assistant coach Dave Strang helped evaluate campers at the first of those two, a statewide camp in which Olivia shined. “All of the evaluators were really big on her hockey sense, her ability to make decisions and her positioning,” Strang said. “Those are all of the things that at the next level become really important.” Olivia said she also likes to ride horses and play soccer. Hockey, though, has gotten a significant boost in her eyes. “I want to play in college some day,” she said. Olivia skated this week in a camp at the Howelsen Ice Arena in Steamboat Springs. She was one of 34 current and future Steamboat Springs High School students who flocked to the arena to skate with this

Hayden High School track and field coach Barbara Manzanares doesn’t hide her excitement when it comes to the state championships today, Friday and Saturday in Lakewood. Along with doubling the number of participants from last year, Manzanares has four athletes who qualified in the top five in their respective events.

Logan Foster qualified at fifth in the triple jump, Jake Walker qualified at third in the 100-meter dash, Murphy Smartt placed second in the high jump, and Holli Salazar is the top shot put qualifier. All have a very good chance to medal. “All of us coaches are excited to see them there,” Manzanares said. “The kids set themselves up for good seedings. We’re excited for the kids. It makes us feel really good.”

Hockey camp ends today Hockey continued from 25 past season’s high school boys team. “The reason we run this camp is two-fold. One, we want some of our younger players — the eighth-graders and the freshmen that haven’t played for us — to skate with the guys that made our team last year,” Ruff said. “They get an idea of the

skill level, speed and intensity that our game is played at. We want to get that surprise out of the way now.” The $25, three-day camp, in its fourth season, wraps up today. “So far, the camp has been really good,” Ruff said. “It has helped our young guys prepare through the summer. Because of that, we have a better team.”

Despite their focus on next year’s winter competitions, the group won’t be entirely stricken with a winter frame of mind. “We will get them out for mountain biking and some kayaking, too,” Rawlings said. “It’s really nice now because we know it’s winter up there and know it’s summer down here.

Soroco coach confident Nuggets in conference finals

Winter looks to clear 9 feet One year ago, when Steamboat Springs High School junior Jaime Winter first qualified for state in the pole vault, she was a wreck. She was so nervous it almost seemed like she didn’t want to go to the meet. But now, Winter — Steamboat’s lone qualifier — said the year of experience has completely changed her outlook.

“I know what I’m in for this year,” Winter said. “Last year, I had no idea what I was going for. I didn’t realize the level of competition. This year, I have a clue what I’m heading for. I’m not so nervous this year. I definitely have a chance to clear the opening height. Last year, I hadn’t pole vaulted much.” Winter’s personal best is 8-6. The opening height at state is 8 feet, and Winter said her goal is to clear 9 feet. Despite a sore left knee that will require surgery after the season, Winter said she enters the meet with much more confidence than last year. “Hopefully, I’ll clear the opening height and maybe set a personal record,” she said. Winter jumps at 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

The Denver Nuggets are leaving all the animosity with the Dallas Mavericks’ players, fans and owner behind and are heading to their first Western Conference finals since 1985. Behind 30 points from Carmelo Anthony and 28 from Chauncey Billups, the Nuggets beat the Mavericks, 124-110, on Wednesday night to wrap up their semifinal series in five feisty games.

dream of this type of success when the season began in November following the departures of defensive stalwarts Marcus Camby and Eduardo Najera. Then came the biggest trade in team history, Allen Iverson to Detroit for Billups, who turned his hometown team from an afterthought into a championship contender after leading the Pistons to six straight Eastern Conference finals and the NBA championship in 2004. “He’s a leader,” Anthony said about Billups. “He came on this team and he brought a businesslike attitude to our team. He brought a defensive mind-set we were looking for.”

We worked hard in the offseason and training camp and throughout,” Anthony said. “We stuck to everything, we overcame adversity, we stayed humble and our hard work paid off. Winners of 16 straight games at the Pepsi Center, where no opponent has won since March 9, the Nuggets would start their next series on the road if the Lakers win, and at home if Houston does.

The Soroco High School track and field team will compete in six events, and coach David Bruner thinks the Rams can bring home six medals. “We want to be in the top eight and get a medal,” Bruner said. “Our No. 1 thing is to run our best races of the year. If we do that, we have a chance to medal in everything. Where we’re at now, I think we can medal in all that stuff.” While having shots in the boys 800 and 1,600 relays and girls 800 relay, the Rams’ best shots for top finishes will come from a pair of juniors. Alex Estes, ranked eighth in the long jump and ninth in the triple jump, and Matt Watwood, who is fifth in the shot put and second in the discus, each should have legitimate shots at topthree finishes. Watwood’s throw of 46-11 in the shot put at last weekend’s regional meet helped set a new school record. “Alex, in triple and long, is capable of jumping to get top three,” Bruner said. “Matt’s goal is to be in the top three, and with a good discus throw, you never know what might happen.” Watwood and Estes will compete today and Friday. The relays run preliminaries today and Friday with finals Friday and Saturday.

Craig students raise recycling awareness Collin Smith

CRAIG DAILY PRESS

CRAIG

In Moffat County at least, there’s no age requirement for being taken seriously. People can make a difference, and they don’t even have to be old enough for a driver’s license. Moffat County Commissioner Tom Mathers thanked 23 fifth-graders from Craig Intermediate School on Wednesday for reminding him about a forgotten cause. A 9-foot sculpture they made from recyclable materials moved him and the other commissioners to purchase recycling bins for each floor of the Moffat County Courthouse. The sculpture, made out of hundreds of used plastic bottles, is on display in the courthouse foyer. “You’ve started recycling at the courthouse because of this,” Mathers said. “You kids made a difference.” After speaking to the class, Mathers said he was glad the students reminded him

about one way everyone can help make the world a cleaner place. The county should have shown their initiative without having to be reminded, he added. “It just brought it back to my mind,” he said. “A lot of places have programs in place, and we as a county should be front-runners to set an example.” Each of the students said they think recycling is important. After hearing that they influenced the county to change its ways, some of them said they plan to take the message home and encourage their parents to start recycling, too. Patrick Keleher, 12, said he taught himself about the issue and that there’s more to it than keeping landfill sizes down. “It’s about not having big pieces of stuff that lasts years and years and years and never goes away,” he said. “If you recycle more, it means you’d have more plants open, which means there’d be more jobs for the economy.”

Commissioners to review 700 components Planning continued from 4 didn’t just allocate it to the city’s general fund.” MacGray said the 4-acre parcel in Overlook Park would accommodate 30 affordable housing units and is valued at $2 million, and he said the dedication is in addition to a $1.3 million payment in lieu to satisfy the city’s affordable housing ordinance. MacGray also said improvements to Burgess Creek — including

waterfalls, pools and vegetation — would be a benefit to the general public because the project as proposed includes an elevated boardwalk through the site that would connect to existing public trails at the base area. Many nearby residents, however, are concerned about the project’s mass and impacts to Burgess Creek Road, which many already consider dangerous. Also tonight, planning commissioners will review a proposed

code change that would limit the size of single-family dwelling units in the industrial zone district to 1,400 square feet and increase the allowable square footage in that zone for employee units and accessory uses. Planning Commission also will provide feedback on several components of the Steamboat 700 development seeking annexation into city limits. — To reach Brandon Gee, call 871-4210 or e-mail bgee@steamboatpilot.com

Thank you to Rotary Club of Steamboat Walker continued from 6 including clean water projects throughout the world. As it turns out, Steamboat’s Rotary Club donated 75 percent of the money needed for the tank. Global Relief Resources, the 501(c)3 organization that holds the Tasaru Scholarship Fund that I administer for the girls’ postsecondary education costs, raised the rest. Now, the center has its rainwater storage capacity back. And there are new and improved gutters on all of the centre’s buildings to collect every drop of rainwater possible. And there is

a tap in the lowest possible part of the new tank so that girls can collect water from there rather than climbing atop. There is a song in Kenya with the words, “I need water, I need everlasting water” — in Swahili, that’s “nipei, nipei maji, maji uzima.” This donation from Steamboat’s Rotary Club is the most direct and real type of charitable donation possible. The outcome is immediately measurable. No administrative costs, delays, surveys, overpriced consultants or feasibility studies — just quick action by a group of compassionate people to solve a real-world problem.

The girls living at the Tasaru Girls Rescue Centre in Narok, Kenya, are fighting many things — female genital mutilation and forced childhood marriage, for their right to an education, for the respect of their fathers, and to have futures of their own choosing. How wonderful that for now, the continual struggle for clean, safe water will not overshadow their many other challenges. On their behalf, to the Rotary Club of Steamboat Springs — “ashe oleng,” in the Kimaasai language, and “asante sana” in Swahili. Thank you. Very much.
