What he learned there would be the guiding force behind the rest of his life. “When he came out of Korea, he knew right away what he wanted to do,” said his son, John Ramunno, who said his father immediately married his mother, Marilyn, and went to college to become a teacher. “It made him grow up quick. … The service set him up for life.” Carl Ramunno went on to become an industrial arts and woodshop teacher at Steamboat Springs High School, but he is most remembered as the school’s legendary, discipline-instilling wrestling coach,

Hiring freeze has slight thaw Experts offer aid to jobless County approves exemption for communications department

The countywide hiring freeze was thawed slightly this week as Routt County commissioners voted unanimously to allow a hiring freeze exemption for the communications department. The commissioners said they also would be willing to hear future freeze exemption requests that relate to public safety. Communications Director J.P. Harris told the commissioners that his department was likely to lose people in the coming months and that he needed PAGE DESIGNED BY CHRISTOPHER WOYTKO

About a year ago Friday, the Steamboat Today classifieds section offered 142 job listings, 67 percent more than this year. That isn’t a tally of total available jobs, however. Several of those listings advertised multiple jobs — 26 with the Steamboat Springs School District, for example. The May 23, 2008, newspaper was 76 pages long. Comparatively, this past Friday’s paper contained 48 pages and 47 job listings. Pickings are slim, competition is fierce, and unemployment increased from 6 percent to 7.6 percent in Routt County from March to April. But local experts are reaching out.

For the week of May 14 to 20

Just one campground in the Routt National Forest will be available for Memorial Day weekend. Big Creek Lakes Campground, which is 35 miles northwest of Walden, will be open for campers but will not have water or trash available, according to a Tuesday news release from the U.S. Forest Service. Most roads and campgrounds in the Routt National Forest still are closed, and many are covered in snow, according to the release. Those who want to visit the forest this weekend are advised to watch out for falling trees that might have been weakened by mountain pine beetles. Several campgrounds are open in the Laramie and Brush Creek ranger districts of the Medicine-Bow National Forest, about 2 1/2 hours north of Steamboat Springs. For more information and for updated campground conditions, go to mbr.

The Steamboat Springs Police Department is joining with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Colorado Department of Transportation and other state and local law enforcement organizations to crack down on low seat belt use with a special enforcement mobilization effort, “Click It or Ticket,” through tonight. The effort is intended to increase seat belt use among drivers and passengers and to reduce fatalities. Colorado has a secondary enforcement law for adult drivers and front-seat passengers. Drivers can be ticketed for violating the seat belt law if they are stopped for another traffic violation. “Click It or Ticket” enforcement focuses on speeding and aggressive drivers. Drivers who are stopped for a traffic violation and aren’t using a seat belt will be ticketed. “Research shows us that if people would just take two seconds to buckle up, it could help save their life,” Steamboat police Sgt. Rich Brown said. “That’s why we’ll be out in force making sure that all passengers, in all vehicles, are buckled up.” For more information on “Click It or Ticket,” visit www. and

Routt County Roadhouse planned for Grand hotel A Texas-style restaurant is scheduled to open this year at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel. The restaurant will serve items including chickenfried steak and hamburgers, co-owner Scott Terzick said. “The price point’s going to be extremely reasonable,” he said, adding that the spot will have live music at night. Terzick is working with David McCarble on the restaurant, which Terzick said should open by October or November.

Kiewit gets approval for YVRA improvements Yampa Valley Regional Airport has received approval to proceed with summer improvements to Taxiway A. Kiewit Western won the contract for the $2.6 million project in 2007, Airport Manager Dave Ruppel said. The Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program will fund 95 percent of the project at the Hayden airport. Airport reserves and the Colorado Department of Transportation will fund the rest, he said. Improvements include replacing asphalt in some spots and adding asphalt in others, Ruppel said. The project was approved in 2007 to be done in 2008, but officials put it on hold when fuel prices soared. They re-examined the project after costs decreased, and Kiewit Western agreed to do it for the original amount, Ruppel said. The Routt County Board of Commissioners OK’d the notice to proceed Tuesday. “We’re all on track to proceed with that, and we actually are expecting a slight cost reduction because our engineering company has reduced the cost of their fees, but we don’t have those numbers yet,” Ruppel said. “Everything looks like it’s on track.” The project is scheduled to start the first week of June and to be finished within two months.

April mass layoffs affect nearly 300,000 workers In April, employers took 2,712 mass layoff actions involving a total of 271,226 workers, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Mass layoff events and initial claims decreased from March, when both recorded their highest levels on record. Throughout the year, layoff events and initial claims more than doubled. Mass layoffs are those that involve at least 50 people. The number of events decreased 221 compared with March, according to the bureau.

Maryland company takes over GOP: Alternative energy K to the 8th Power sold to Connections Academy on May 6 Blythe Terrell





A Baltimore-based company has bought K to the 8th Power, a Steamboat Springs location-neutral business. Ken Reed started K to the 8th with his sister Donna Caldwell six years ago. The business sells online curriculum to public and private schools in 45 states and 250 school districts, Reed said. Connections Academy bought K to the 8th on May 6. Reed and his sister started the company soon after Reed moved to Steamboat from Denver. He’s been in computer science and engineering for years, previously running a publishing company called WestNet Learning. He and Caldwell saw a need for curriculum to help students gain the computer literacy required by the U.S. government. K to the 8th’s products guide teachers through Web-based learning. “The kids aren’t wasting time when they’re going to the lab,” Reed said. “They’re doing something that helps academically, but it helps them become computer

A GOP senator from the nation’s leading coal-producing state contends Democrats will increase energy costs and make the U.S. more dependent on foreign oil if they focus solely on alternative energy. In the party’s weekly radio and Internet address Saturday, Sen. John Barrasso, Barrasso R-Wyo., said Republicans support a more comprehensive energy plan that would increase funding for energy research, develop U.S. oil and gas resources and promote clean coal and nuclear power. “Democrats have focused solely on what they call green jobs. Those are jobs from alternative energy. I support green jobs, but why discriminate?” Barrasso said. “American energy means American jobs, which is why I support red-white-and-blue jobs.” He said renewable energy

such as wind and solar power is important, noting that Wyoming has world-class wind resources. But Barrasso said wind and solar only account for about 1 percent of U.S. electricity, far below what is needed to meet the nation’s energy needs. Wyoming is the nation’s leader in coal production, and coal mining contributes hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue each year to the state. Barrasso also said Democrats were misguided by ruling out the use of U.S. oil in places such as the Outer Continental Shelf and Alaska. “There’s enough oil shale in the Rocky Mountain West alone to power America for the next hundred years,” he said. “As a nation, we need to be more energy independent. It is a matter of energy security, as well as national security.” “As we approach this Memorial Day, it is my hope that the Democrats can work with us to develop solutions to make our energy supply clean, affordable and reliable,” he said.

t must have been hard for friends and family of Clinton Koler to hold back tears Saturday morning when he walked across the stage at Soroco High School in Oak Creek to collect his high school diploma. As reported in Friday’s Steamboat Today, graduatAT ISSUE ing high school seemed an High school impossibility 19 years ago graduation when Koler was born with Down syndrome. Doctors told his parents he would be OUR VIEW Congratulations, severely limited socially and intellectually. Class of 2009. “We were told he’d be a Be proud of your happy baby, but he wouldn’t accomplishment, go very far,” mom Stephanie and strive for Bratton said. Koler proved them future success. wrong. In addition to his academic accomplishments, Koler swam and ran track in the Special Olympics and has skied since he was a third-grader, served as manager of Soroco’s varsity boys basketball team and participated on the school’s Green Team. He was on the honor court for homecoming and prom and has been active in Routt County 4-H. Koler is proof that graduating high school is a significant accomplishment worth celebrating. With that in mind, there’s plenty of celebrating to do across Routt County this time of year. About 200 Routt County teens are graduating high school this month and next. And in the coming weeks, many of them will head off to college or enter the work force, taking on new responsibilities and challenges in the process. As they close one chapter and begin another, we again offer our graduates the following thoughts: ■ Celebrate graduation safely and responsibly. Remember, the repercussions — legal and otherwise — of your actions can have serious and lasting effects on your futures. ■ For those who go on to pursue higher education, have fun but stay focused. College is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Never lose sight of why you’re there and what it’s costing. There won’t be teachers, parents or guidance counselors to remind you to attend that early morning lecture or study for that midterm. The choices you make are yours, as are the consequences. ■ Explore. Many of you were fortunate to spend your childhood years in beautiful Routt County, but there’s an enormous world beyond Northwest Colorado. Study abroad. Accept a job offer somewhere entirely foreign to you. Embrace the diversity our planet has to offer, and cherish the opportunities to be seized. ■ Life is short and should be enjoyed. Find something you love to do, and do it as best you can. But don’t worry if it takes awhile to discover your calling. Recognize the positives in everything you do and try, and use them as a guide for your next adventure. Most of all, don’t be afraid of change. ■ Discover the rewards of being active in your community. Whether it’s volunteering at your church, reading to local senior citizens, spending a weekend day working for Habitat for Humanity or serving meals at a homeless shelter, there are few things in life more satisfying than giving of yourself for the benefit of others. Remember all the people who gave their time and money to help make you the person you are today, and pay it forward. Congratulations, Class of 2009. We wish you a happy, healthy and successful future.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Reply to bus safety We are writing in response to a derogatory letter about school bus safety (“School bus safety,” Krista Andress) printed in the May 13 Steamboat Pilot & Today. Please take a moment and imagine driving a 32,000-pound vehicle on snow-packed and icy roads with priceless cargo of incomprehensible value. You likely have at least one college degree and numerous years of experience as a “highly paid professional,” but you opt to contribute to children’s safety while living in this beautiful valley. Each day, you spend your work day with 70 students, often in treacherous weather, shuttling them safely and skillfully with one of the best safety records in the state. Frequently, this 16-ton vehicle has to avoid inattentive drivers that seem to think talking on their cell phone is more important than paying attention to stop signs, young children on the roadsides or big yellow vehicles. Now, stop imagining and realize that this is the daily responsibility of all school bus drivers in the Steamboat Springs School District — not just once in a while, but every day of the school year. Along with driving safely, we also go through cases of Kleenex during cold and allergy season, many extra hours commuting with mops and body fluid spill kits during flu season, hundreds of Band-Aids from too much playground fun, bulging Dumpsters filled with trash bags brimming with leftover or spilled lunches and old banana peels, and the list goes on. Surprisingly, each Steamboat school bus driver is required to have current medic first aid certification, although we have students for just a fraction of their school day. Riding the bus is the “green” thing to do. However, few parents ever discuss the school bus safety rules after they sign the bus contract with their students at the beginning of each school year. If Ms. Andress truly is concerned about providing her child the safest transportation to school, the Colorado Department of Education research has documented that a passenger in a car is exponentially more likely to be in an accident than a passenger on a school bus. Each time a student stands

up, yells, uses foul language, harasses fellow students, innocently tosses something to a friend, etc., it takes the driver’s focus off the road. It is confounding why even a small amount of time is not spent at home discussing the ramifications of this behavior to all on a school bus rather than relaying false information in a letter to the editor. Further, as an almost nine-year driver for our district, I have had only two parents ever take the time to come in and meet with me. I have contracts with more than 100 students each year. Do the math. The old airline adage “Come fly with me” certainly would be honored if ever a parent wanted to “Come ride with me” and witness firsthand the high degree of safety and professionalism exemplified on the school buses in our district. Sadly, too easily one parent composed a grossly inaccurate letter and submitted it for printing in a local paper. If you feel strongly enough to besmirch a great group of employees with false statements, we suggest your energy might be better spent cohesively working to research, resolve and improve things that may be falling short of your expectations.

Power of voting Your editorial last Sunday (“Power to the people,” May 10 Pilot & Today) encouraging people to vote in the upcoming Yampa Valley Electric election for directors was right on the mark. As a cooperative, YVEA is owned and controlled by the customers, because every customer is a member. I strongly encourage everyone to mail back the ballot they will be receiving at the end of this month. The only effort voting entails is a check mark and a postage stamp. I am a little concerned about the implication at the end for your editorial that YVEA needs a change in direction in order to become more progressive about green power. YVEA already is the second greenest electrical coop in the state while, at the same time, we have the lowest rates of any coop in the state. The state of Colorado presently requires each distribution utility such as YVEA to sell at

least 1 percent of its electricity from renewable energy sources. YVEA has increased its purchase of renewable energy every year and now sells more than 10 percent of its electricity from renewable sources. YVEA is a leader in renewable energy, not a laggard. On a personal note, I endorse renewable energy sources wholeheartedly as long as they are reliable and cost-effective. I installed solar panels on my roof at home in 1985, about the same time as my opponent started thinking about energy efficiency and renewable energy, according to her previous statements.

Right in wrong way Dr. Savage (“Disputing Krugman,” May 20 Steamboat Today) is correct in saying, “some of the critical aspects of the models have been proved wrong, thus invalidating the models in his judgment.” Modeling the climate is not an exact science, and the model needs to be adjusted every year after the data is gathered. The data from 2008 places it in the top 10 of highest recorded temperatures. So, 12 of the highest recorded average temperatures have occurred in the past 14 years. The model from one year ago would be much more desirable than the current model. The 2008 data strays far from the model of 2007, for the worse. Unfortunately, the only way to prove the accuracy of the model is to wait. In 50 years, we could look back at the 2007 model and say, “If they only would have told us how bad it was going to get, we would have listened.” But by Dr. Savage’s logic, if the model is not exactly right, the model has no value. However, the model is showing a trend that Dr. Savage chooses to not acknowledge. Models may be debated and trends can be ignored, but what you cannot ignore are the signs Earth is giving us. On NOVA, they examined new research on glaciers. The researchers from Boulder and abroad have increased their understanding of glaciers. They have found glaciers are moving into the See Letters, page 5A

Patriotism. Let’s focus for a few moments on that word. If I were to ask you if you felt patriotic, what would you say? When did you first get that excited feeling in your heart as the flag passed by during a parade or the National Anthem was sung? What would be your answer? More than likely, you were first aware of these feelings back in grade school when you learned the Pledge of Allegiance or sang “My Country ’tis of Thee.” Memorial Day reminds us that without patriotism, we would have no heroes to honor today. Oliver Wendell Holmes called this “our most sacred holiday,” and he urged that “we not ponder with sad thoughts the passing of our heroes, but rather ponder their legacy — the life they made possible for us by their commitment and pain.” At its core, Memorial Day always has commemorated the universal, allencompassing understanding of, “No greater love than this does any man have, that he lay down his life for his friends.” Abraham Lincoln, in his memorable dedication of the Gettysburg battlefield in 1863, spoke about the inadequacy of words at times such as that: “The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.” We, as Americans, have embodied the spirit of “we’re all in this together” and “united we’ll stand together.” However, there have been times in our history when this hasn’t been our sentiment. Before the attack on Pearl Harbor, Americans were extremely divided as to whether we should enter the war. Twenty years before, World War I had been called the “war to end all wars” with nearly 53,000 Americans killed in battle. On Dec. 7, 1941, opinions changed. The next day, more Americans enlisted than any other day in our history, and with the loss of more than 291,000 servicemen and women during World War II, the price indeed was high. From the moment the Japanese dropped the first bombs at Pearl Harbor, it became an American fight. When the first troops were sent to wage war, it became an American effort. This holds true today. Our words can’t hold a candle to the numerous sacrifices of so many. But we honor them, remember them and are deeply indebted to them. We recognize too that the age-old struggle to be free goes on today. Today we live in a post-Sept. 11, 2001, world. The country changed forever on that fateful day. Gone are the days when we’d sit back and believe that our oceans would protect us from those who wish us harm. We acknowledge that in order to continue to protect the freedoms we hold close to our hearts, we have to take the battles to See Williams, page 5A

Remembering Corna “Hollywood,” I will miss your never-ending smile. You are dearly missed. I hope you know how many people’s lives you touched. The Memorial Tournament will be extra special to me this year. My heart is extremely heavy … my condolences to the Corna family … have faith. — curlysue I remember the first time I met Chris (I only met him a few times). I was amazed with the way he carried himself, the love that he had for all around him, and the compassion that he showed toward other people. I didn’t know him nearly well enough, but I could see all the qualities of a man who was in touch with his surroundings and his community, and he loved both. — Campo

We pause now to reflect on what has been sacrificed the terrorists and promote freedom throughout the world. Our brave men and women are doing that right now, and we salute them, support them and honor them. Yet, as these brave American men and women find themselves far from America’s shores, in lands foreign to them, they face situations their parents hoped and prayed their children would never have to experience. Yet, the call to defend freedom came, and they answered. They all are heroes — facing enemies every day, and yet they stand resolved to carry out their mission to keep America safe. Many will return home with the pride of having served their

so we gather again to reflect, remember and give thanks to the many fallen heroes from a truly grateful nation. The American Legion’s National Commander, David Rehbein, believes in two short words that state what the Legion is all about — “pride” and “purpose.” Pride in the uniform we once wore. Pride that we’ve chosen to continue our service to America, our veterans, troops and communities. Pride in our flag and all that it symbolizes. Pride fuels the sense of purpose. Those who serve now and have served in the armed forces are no less committed to protect our nation than were the men who signed the Declaration of

Independence. Their final words state, “for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.” Today, our armed forces maintain this same commitment and honor that was declared more than two centuries ago when America first fought for her freedom. So on this most sacred day, we pause to reflect on what has been given and sacrificed. Let us never forget. God bless you all, and God bless America.

Debating the model will only help us understand when sea level rise may occur. But whether the new model, with new feedbacks included, shows a sharp increase in the average temperatures and predicts five years until total glacial melt; or if it is a kinder model, like 2007, that gives us 150 years until total glacial melt. The model becomes moot either way. The real issue is not the model, the environment or climate, but the politics behind the carbon tax, cap and trade. It will cause fossil fuel energy producers a great deal of money and affect their profitability — and shows that it’s not economically feasible to

ocean at rates of two to eight times greater than 20 years ago. The glaciers are not redeposited each winter at rates equal to their discharge into the ocean. So, the glaciers are retreating, and Greenland is getting smaller. A trend that the model supports is that the glacier loss in 2008 was greater than the glacier loss in 2007. And 2009 probably will be more than 2008, and so on. There is nothing to suggest that this observable trend will change. Glacier National Park is another example where the glaciers have been removed from the face of the Earth.

Freeze continued from 1A

Sgt. Mike Baumann, who oversees the jail, said he plans to go forward with requests to fill the jail positions soon in order to have time for training. Once a deputy is hired, he or she must go through criminal, psychological and polygraph tests, along with three months of training. “Last year, we were asking for additional deputies,” Baumann said. “Now, I’m in front of them saying I cannot operate and schedule this facility with less than I had before.” Baumann said hiring civilians to run the control tower will help with future deputy vacancies because the civilians will be given a chance to move into deputy roles and will act as a readily available hiring pool.

One of the four detention deputy positions can be filled because it was open before the freeze took effect in February. The job descriptions for two other positions — civilians who would operate the control tower — also was approved by the commissioners and could be filled by a freeze exemption. The commissioners rejected the only previous freeze exemption request, made by Routt County Assessor Mike Kerrigan soon after the hiring freeze took effect. Kerrigan requested the commissioners allow him to replace an outgoing deputy assessor, but the commissioners at the time said they were not convinced that his office would be unable to complete its statutory duty without the position filled.

Resource fair will assist people in searching for jobs, help with creating résumés Jobs continued from 1A

better for me to plan my materials and perhaps get to know the folks who attend.” Goedert also recommended that job seekers go to the Colorado Workforce Center’s resource fair Thursday. In a typical year, the center would be staging its biannual job fair. But as of Friday, only one employer had signed on, employment specialist Brian Bradbury said. The fair usually features 30 employers and has more on a waiting list. To address the economic shift, the center has planned a resource fair for people looking for jobs. It’ll be job-related, Bradbury said, but it also will offer information about issues facing people who are unemployed. “We have some real estate people, some bankruptcy attorneys, some regular attorneys,” he said. “The college is coming in for different training and assessment services.” Nonprofit groups will set up booths at the fair, and participants can get résumé help. The Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association, Integrated Community, and groups connected with mental health and veterans’ services will be there, Bradbury said. “As people have questions, hopefully they can come in,” he said. “If there’s someone there that they need to talk to and we don’t have them, hopefully we can find resources for them.”

For help with unemployment benefits, call the local Colorado Workforce Center at 879-3075, or visit the office at 425 Anglers Drive. The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment offers a Web site,

Similar workshops in Frisco and along Interstate 70 have met success, Bradbury said. The fair represents an unusual approach, he said, “but it’s an approach we’re pretty excited about.” Among the materials in Goedert’s arsenal is this tool kit for job searches: ■ Get an e-mail address that’s appropriate for business use. ■ If you’re using an instant messaging service in your search, make sure your screen name is professional. ■ Don’t use acronyms such, to help people with unemployment benefits. Those filing new claims can call 1-866-422-0401. People who have old claims, have questions or need to reopen existing claims can call 1-800-388-5515.

as “TTYL” for “talk to you later.” It’s not professional. All employment-related communications should be as professional as letters you send on paper. ■ Get an answering machine or voice mail. Consider an Internet answering machine if you need one. ■ For résumés and cover letters, use good quality paper in a traditional color. White or beige is best. ■ Your résumé should include contact information as well as work history and skills. Proofread the phone number,

e-mail address and other information. ■ Keep track of where you’ve sent your résumé, whom you’ve networked with and when you’re going to follow up.

7 companies at summit account for 176 local jobs Another audience member asked the panelists whether they feel responsible for marketing Steamboat Springs. Many are location-neutral companies. Moots uses a “hand-built in the Rockies” tag line on the bicycles it makes and sells, Rob Mitchell said. SmartWool identifies closely with Steamboat, spokeswoman Molly Cuffe said. “Steamboat is absolutely the face of our brand,” she said. “Our heritage is here.” The businesspeople also stressed how important local involvement is to them. ACZ paid for the new bronze sculpture on the courthouse lawn, Tim VanWyngarden said. “We don’t have cool schwag like a lot of you guys do,” he told the other panelists. The companies all donate to organizations and fundraisers across Routt County, Moore said. SmartWool provides its employees 40 paid volunteer hours a year, Cuffe said. The company also shuts down for two days a year to do projects in the community. “Money is one thing, but when you invest your sweat and energy into your community, that’s when you’re really dedicated,” she said. The summit, “Thriving in Tough Economic Times,” was Wednesday and Thursday at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel. — To reach Blythe Terrell, call 871-4234 or e-mail

Lighthearted speakers Who says an Economic Summit has to be boring? Presenters sprinkled their speeches with jokes and flippant comments at last week’s conference.




■ Speaker Daniel Levine, of the AvantGuide Institute: “It certainly is tough out there economically. We all know that; that’s really the theme of the whole conference. I’ve gotta say, it’s even tough for me. I decided after my presentation today, I’m going to sell my DVDs at the back of the room — I still have ‘Bambi,’ ‘Pinocchio’ and ‘Brokeback Mountain.’”

■ David Monahan, of Sprig Toys: “We ended up with this (packaging) box. We call it really green. The real reason it looks like this is, we ran out of money.” ■ Former Bronco Karl Mecklenburg: Talking about his son’s trip to Toys R Us: “Luke goes under the shelf and pulls out a box and says, ‘Dad, this is it; this is the toy I want.’ My son had selected the McDonald’s drive-through guy.”


She asked the businesses to provide their job and payroll numbers. The seven companies account for 176 local jobs and a payroll of $9.5 million. “When you put these companies together, they would rank about the fifth-largest employer (in Routt County) both in jobs and in wages,” Moore said. The business representatives were forthcoming with their trials and tribulations, and many offered reasons for optimism. Big Agnes makes sleeping bags, pads and tents. The company has had a 62 percent average growth rate each year for the past seven, Rich Hager said. The businesses all care for and are invested in the community, owners said. Most of them donate items to and serve as sponsors for fundraisers and events across town. They help in other ways, too. “In 2008, we spent over $40,000 with local businesses to entertain and accommodate guests brought to Steamboat Springs,” Hager said. Laura Lamun, founder of Little Moon Essentials, offered an unconventional business approach. The idea for her natural body-care products arrived while she slept. “I woke up from a dream and put together a bath salt I had dreamed about,” Lamun said. “I saw everything in this dream. I saw the bath salt; I

saw the name.” She started selling the product at a Boulder store and built her business from there. “It took me 10 years to make my first million dollars,” Lamun said. “It took me 14 months to make my second million.” She sees the economy’s recession as an economic “remodel.” “We’re tearing everything down and doing an extreme home remodel. … I’m going to do that in an unconventional and humorous way.” Chris Timmerman runs the Creek Co., which sells fly fishing accessories and other river-related items. Like Lamun, he keeps his operation going with a small staff and a lot of flexibility. There are “four guys, and we crank out a lot of business, and so even in tough times like this, there’s room to suck it up and everything’s still good for us,” Timmerman said. The audience questioned the business owners about their methods and sought advice. One participant asked about financing. Wing-Time owner Terry Brown said seeking financing was a personal experience. “I wasn’t trying to get them to invest in my business,” Brown said. “I’m trying to get them to invest in me.” Timmerman did a small stock offering to start his business. Lamun uses a partnership with a catalogue and builds through sales.

Connections plans to expand, add jobs to K to the 8th Power continued from 3A could bring these two companies together, leveraging our national footprint … and help them expand their footprint in terms of schools they’re reaching,” Guttentag said. Connections Academy manages online schools for kindergarten through 12th grade and serves about 18,000 students. Connections was founded in 2001 and opened its first two schools in 2002. One was Denver Connections Academy, part of the public school system

in Denver. “We have a fondness for the state and are happy to be there in two places,” Guttentag said. Connections plans to help K to the 8th expand. That could mean more jobs, but those might not be in Steamboat. “To our customers and new customers, it’ll look the same,” Reed said. “They’re going to be really aggressive and put a lot of money into it. They want to grow it by a factor of 4 1/2 over a year and a half, and they have the resources to do it.” Connections Academy offered

cash and stock for K to the 8th. Connections is private but plans to go public in a year and a half, Reed said. He wouldn’t give figures but said the deal amounted to five times K to the 8th Power’s annual revenue. Reed, Bennett and Ott are contractually obligated to stay with the company for a year, Reed said. He isn’t sure whether he’ll stay on after that. “I have no idea. I haven’t really decided. I haven’t worked for somebody for so long, I don’t know if I can do it,” he joked.

Guttentag said he was pleased with how the managers built Connections Academy’s new acquisition. “In addition to the technology, we’re very excited,” he said. “Ken Reed, George Bennett, Robert Ott — we’ve just been very impressed with what they’ve built in a very frugal way, a very smart way that really meets the needs of students out there that need to be technology literate.”

A former University of Colorado football player accused of being at the center of a sex and drugs scandal that erupted at the school in 2002 faces prosecution for an alleged sex assault before he joined the team. An Arapahoe County District judge has ordered District Attorney Carol Chambers to suggest a special prosecutor by July 6 to bring charges by Oct. 5 against former player Clyde Surrell and Riley McMurdo in an alleged assault after a high school graduation party in 2000. A number listed for Surrell was inoperable, and McMurdo did not immediately return a phone message Saturday. In 2007, prosecutors in Larimer County reviewed the case at Chambers’ request and agreed there was insufficient evidence to file charges.

I would like to thank the brave men and women who served and sacrificed for our freedom.

Aspen police have arrested a man accused of attacking a woman at her home after a “wrap party” at a bar for the film “Cougar Hunting.” Police say 30-year-old Christopher “Christian” Melendez II, of Aspen, threw the woman to the ground and choked her after she asked him and two other men to leave her apartment early Friday. An arrest affidavit states Melendez was a wardrobe assistant and that the woman was his supervisor on the crew of “Cougar Hunting,” which filmed scenes in Aspen this spring. Melendez allegedly told police he and the woman had an altercation after she pushed him. He was advised Friday that he faces potential charges of second-degree attempted murder, felony assault and burglary. His phone number isn’t listed.

Stanko: These 6 men served their country, community Honor continued from 1A daily story,” John Ramunno said about his father’s time in Korea, as he remembered Carl Ramunno’s “Christmas in a foxhole” story. “When I was a kid, I thought he must have been there for 10 years. … He put his life on the line for his country. There’s not a day goes by I don’t think about something he told me or taught me.” Stories about veterans returning home too often are negatively focused on issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder, said local veteran Jim Stanko, organizer of the annual Memorial Day ceremony to be held Monday. Not often enough, Stanko said, are there stories about men such as Ramunno, who returned from service to make a positive impact on the community for many years. “He took a lot of us kids and shaped us up,” Stanko said about Ramunno — from personal experience. “That’s what we’re trying to show: What you learn in the military carries over. … Not only did they serve their country, they came back and served their community. I know we have problems, but people came back and help build their communities. They don’t get the recognition.”

Honor in every war In honor of such men, the Steamboat Springs Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 4264 and the American Legion Post No. 44 will pay tribute to six veterans from past wars Monday, to symbolize all 265 veterans at the Steamboat Springs Cemetery.

Representing Civil War veterans will be Charles C. Graham, a Steamboat businessman who was elected to the state Senate as a Populist. He died at the age of 76. “He was a pioneer resident here, first locating on a ranch on the Elk River and then moving to Steamboat Springs where he erected a building on Lincoln Avenue and lived many years,” reads an obituary in the Jan. 14, 1914, Steamboat Pilot. “In the early days, he was prominent in Republican politics, but at the time of the Populist (wave) he joined that party.” Representing veterans of World War I will be Claude A. Luekens, who served 23 years as a Routt County Commissioner and 19 years as the mayor of Steamboat Springs. He died July 13, 1971, at the age of 88. “His record of community service was so impressive that it seemed that his vocation of many years, the ChryslerPlymouth agency and garage, was only a sideline,” read Luekens’ local newspaper obituary. “Actually, his business was one of the two originally Chrysler-Plymouth agencies in Colorado.” Don Brookshire will represent veterans of World War II. Brookshire, a Steamboat Springs native, died in 1997. He owned and operated the former Corner Liquor Store and later was employed as the lift ticket supervisor for the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp. for 20 years. A Navy veteran based on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific Ocean, Brookshire was elected to three terms on the Steamboat Springs City

Council and also was active in veterans groups and other organizations. Ramunno is representing veterans of the Korean War. Representing veterans of the Vietnam War is James A. Chew, the only Steamboat Springs police officer to ever be killed in the line of duty. Chew joined the police department in 1970 and was shot while stopping a vehicle that was reported stolen. The vehicle was driven by Harold Vernon Bingham, an escapee from the Washington state prison system. Bingham later was arraigned on first-degree murder charges in Routt County. Bingham reportedly had escaped from prison and ended up in Steamboat Springs after a car chase in which police lost him on Rabbit Ears Pass. A few days later, a pistol and rifle were reported stolen in Steamboat Springs, leading police to suspect that Bingham made it back into the city limits and took the weapons. The day after the guns were reported stolen, Chew was killed, possibly by one of those stolen guns. Chew was following up on a stolen vehicle report near Fourth and Oak streets when he confronted the driver. The details surrounding the shooting are unclear, but Chew reportedly was shot in the back by Bingham and later died of the injuries he sustained. Greg Kyprios will represent veterans of Operation Desert Storm. He was a captain in the U.S. Army, who later started a

Richard Blackaby was just 18 and fresh out of high school in 1966 when he was drafted for Vietnam. His father had served as a Seabee in the U.S. Navy during World War II, and Blackaby was desperate to follow in his path. But the Army said no: Blackaby had epilepsy and asthma and was unfit for service. Twelve years later, Blackaby — now married with three children — reapplied to the Army and was accepted to the 4th Infantry Division as a forward observer. But Vietnam was over, and the eager recruit spent the next six years waiting for a war that never came. When he was honorably discharged in 1984, he was a sergeant but had never experienced combat, had never called in a real air strike or fired at a real target. Nearly 25 years later, Blackaby’s missed opportunity weighs on him as he patrols his selfselected battleground: Riverside,

Intrawest CEO says business refocuses Intrawest CEO Bill Jensen used plain language last week to describe his company’s future in resort real estate while participating in a panel discussion at the annual convention of the National Ski Areas Association in Marco Island, Fla. Several published reports, including one in the Vail Daily, had Jensen saying the old Intrawest focus had been on real estate for 20 years but, “That went into the toilet, flushed down the sewer and into some ocean, so that business opportunity is truly dead right now.” The dwindling prospects for Intrawest’s real estate business caused the company to refocus on its primary revenue generators and engage in cost cutting during the winter, Jensen added. The result is that when business comes back, those costs won’t have to be added back into the business model, he said.

Small crane dismantles cranes at ski area base The twin yellow construction cranes at One Steamboat Place have completed their work on the luxury condominium project at the base of Steamboat Ski Area, and a third, smaller crane (this one is red) has begun taking its larger brothers down. The work should be completed by the conclusion of the Memorial Day weekend.

Kreissig Homes moving dirt at Rocky Peak Village Go ahead and ask: Are Kim and Peter Kreissig really going to build new townhomes in Steamboat this summer despite the sagging market and substantial inventory? Kreissig Homes has begun digging foundations for the first homes at Rocky Peak Village off Hilltop Parkway. Prices for the 2,300square-foot, four-bedroom homes begin in the $700,000s. Kim Kreissig, who hangs her real estate shingle at Prudential Steamboat Realty, said this week that more than half of the initial building is sold out. The first units should be delivered Nov. 1, complete with landscaping.

Unusual craftsmanship Home takes advantage of beetle-killed lodgepole pine


he thousands of acres of dying evergreen trees in Northwest Colorado represent a tremendous timber resource, but let’s face it: Lodgepole pine doesn’t always get the respect it deserves. To understand how beautiful STORY BY beetle-killed TOM ROSS lodgepole can be in a family home, all one needs do to is tour Steve and Currie Meyer’s timber-frame home at 2755 Abbey Road in West End Village. Steve Meyer, the owner of ScribeLine Timber Works, was just putting the finishing touches on his family’s new timber-frame home this winter when Currie accepted a position managing a branch library in Fort Collins. Now, the Meyers’ 2,640square-foot home is on the market for $639,000. Listing Realtor Charlie Dresen, of Prudential Steamboat Realty, said the home’s features include 3-plus bedrooms, 3.5 baths and an unusually deep garage. Even the garage reflects Meyer’s timber-frame craftsmanship with its shaped posts and beams and pegged joinery. Meyer purchased a load of lodgepole logs from a timber operation on the Henderson Mine off Colorado Highway


The timber frame of the Meyer home in West End Village is built to a 300-year standard. Below: The foyer features a curved wall.

9 between Kremmling and Silverthorne. “We brought Joe Bonn’s portable band saw to the site to mill the pile of logs,” Meyer said. He used the heavy timbers to build his new home to a 300-year standard. And by using local timber, he reduced the carbon footprint of his home, adding to its greenbuilt qualities. They include energy-efficient sheathing and renewable bamboo flooring. The result is a family home


with a level of craftsmanship you wouldn’t always see in one of Steamboat’s best neighborhoods for working families. “If Steve hadn’t built it, not many people would build a timber-frame home of this size in this neighborhood,” Dresen said. “This home has so much style. In second homes twice this size, you see this kind of craftsmanship all the time, but not in homes of this size.” See Timber, page 2B

Olympian developer cuts penthouse price by $395K 20 percent discount good only for the next 3 sales at complex Tom Ross



Paul Franklin, developer of The Olympian at Fifth and Yampa streets, is testing his hypothesis that interested buyers in his downtown luxury condo building can be motivated to get in the game with a 20 percent price discount. For his most expensive penthouses, that could add up to $395,000. “I believe there is pent-up energy on the sidelines right now,” Franklin said. “In this market, people are looking for

deals. I think I can release that energy by offering deals.” The offer of a 20 percent discount is good only for the next three sales at the 23-unit project, Franklin said. The intent is to create urgency, which in turn could lead to some sales momentum, which, Franklin hopes, will bolster consumer confidence in his product. Franklin said he is in final negotiations on converting his construction loan at The Olympian to long-term financing. He said the discount program is not about his ability to carry the completed project but about hesitancy in the marketplace.

“It has nothing to do with my financial position,” Franklin said. “We came into this with a very good pro forma. It’s about the market and people looking for a deal.” Thus far, two units have sold at The Olympian, one of three deed-restricted, affordable units and a one-bedroom market-rate condominium that had an asking price of $636,000. The one market-rate sale represents the bottom of the price range at The Olympian, which offers unobstructed views of the Yampa River, right across the street from many of the condos. See Olympian, page 2B


Decks on the south side of The Olympian overlook the Yampa River and the ski jumps at Howelsen Hill. Two units have sold at the luxury condominium building.

District Forester John Twitchell, of the Colorado State Forest Service in Steamboat Springs, is trying to encourage the use of beetle-killed lodgepole in homebuilding. He said timber-frame construction is well-suited because the production of large posts and beams makes it easier to work around the cracks that appear in timber that has dried on the stump. “A lot of people maligned lodgepole even before the beetle epidemic, but lodgepole is the strongest Western pine there is,” Twitchell said. A report just released by the State Forest Service cites lodgepole as frequently being the timber of choice locally for timber-frame and other forms of post and beam construction. Further, it concludes that the “blue stain” appearance (evidence of an old fungal growth) that gives beetle-killed timber The Meyer home has a rustic covered front porch that has the feel of a farm home. some of its beauty and character, has no impact on the struc- eton of the structure is exposed and doesn’t have anything to do to plain view.

The condominiums at The Olympian blend the historic loft look with warm wood finishes. A half dozen units offer semi-private elevators that open in the living space.

The amount of the discount Franklin is offering will range with the asking prices. For example, a two-bedroom, 2.5-bath condo on the fourth floor priced at $994,000 would be discounted $198,800 to $795,200. The price per square foot would drop from $745 to $596. At the top of the scale, a three-bedroom, two-bath penthouse with views of the ski area and Sleeping Giant comprising 2,131 square feet and priced at $1.975 million would be reduced to $1.58 million. Among the four new downtown condominium projects completed last year, the majority of units remain unsold.

Franklin said he has been working closely with Mark Scully, principal for Green Courte Partners, whose downtown assets include Alpen Glow and Howelsen Place, to promote the attractiveness of living downtown. Scully said he is looking forward to the first full summer without major construction on the side streets off Lincoln Avenue. “It’s the reintroduction of downtown Steamboat,” Scully said. “We’re encouraged by the demand for nightly rentals in our properties.” Scully said he and his partners at Ski Town Lifestyle Properties, the Steamboat sales arm of Green Courte, constantly are reviewing pricing and probably will unveil some price reductions in June. “We have what we think is the best project in town at Howelsen Place,” Scully said. “We also intend to compete with Paul (Franklin) and everyone downtown, as well as on the mountain.” Franklin thinks his own property has qualities that can’t be replicated in downtown, including large heated decks overlooking the river that can accommodate hot tubs and large common areas including an interior courtyard that walls out the ambient noise of downtown. Six of the units have semi-private, lock-off elevators that deliver residents into their own foyers. The design aesthetic reflects a historic urban loft, mixing steel details and exposed ductwork with warm wood flooring and trim. The relatively small size of the project allowed Franklin to work with architectural firm Vertical Arts to ensure each condominium is distinctly different from the others. The listing broker for The Olympian is Tom Wilson, of Prudential Steamboat Realty. — To reach Tom Ross, call 871-4205 or e-mail

OPPORTUNITY TO COMMENT RED DIRT INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests The Yampa Ranger District requests comments on the Red Dirt Integrated Management Environmental Assessment (EA). The Red Dirt area is located about 12 miles northwest of Kremmling in Grand County, Colorado. The U.S. Forest Service proposes to salvage dead and dying trees to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire, to protect regenerating trees, and to capture the value of the timber. Forest thinning will accelerate tree growth by increasing space between trees. Road construction will allow access to treatment units outside of roadless areas. Road repair and decommissioning will correct existing or anticipated erosion and water flow problems likely exacerbated by increased water flows from beetle-induced tree mortality. Implementation may start in early fall of 2009. The EA is available at ex.shtml or by calling 970-638-4516. The opportunity to comment ends 30 days following the date of publication of this legal notice [36 CFR 215.6(a)(2)]. Only those who submit timely comments will be accepted as appellants. For appeal eligibility each individual or representative from each organization submitting comments must either sign the comments or verify identity upon request. For appeal eligibility, comments must include name and address, title of the proposed action, and specific comments on the proposed action, along with supporting reasons that the Responsible Official should consider in reaching a decision. Electronic comments can be accepted in emails, Word (.doc), Adobe Portable Document (.pdf), Plain Text (.txt), or Rich Text (.rtf) formats or as an ASCII file avoiding the use of special characters and any form of encryption.

Copper stables scrambles for new location Bob Berwyn



After 30 years of offering trail rides at the resort, the Copper Mountain Stables operation is scrambling to find a new location this summer. The existing stable at the west end of the resort, near the Union Creek base area, will be torn down as part of a wetlands mitigation project. Copper Mountain Resort is starting on an expansion of the Union Creek parking area as the first step in a slate of base improvements authorized by the county last August. More parking at Union Creek is an important piece of the resort’s goal of providing better service to families and beginning skiers. Under the county permit, the wetlands project is required as part of the parking lot expansion. Leslie Miller, who has been operating the stables for 13 years, said she’s found a new temporary spot for the horses on a parking lot along Highway 91. The U.S. Forest Service will permit the temporary use at that location without requiring formal environmental studies. “There’s plenty of room for corrals at the north end of the Corn Lot, and she’d still have access to the Forest Service

trails,” said Forest Service ranger Joe Foreman. “But the staging area would be on private land.” The challenge for Miller is to find a location for starting the trail rides, somewhere in the Copper base area. The first spot she picked would be subject to a county review process. Based on the timing, the earliest she could get approval would be early July. That would be too late to get the operation going for this summer, Miller said.

Uncertain fate Without pointing fingers, Miller said the timing of the process has left her in the lurch, unsure about the fate of the riding operation and the eight or nine part-time employees who help take care of the horses and lead rides. “I trusted that Copper was doing what needed to be done,” she said, explaining that it’s up to Copper to get the needed county permits. “I was warned a year ago, but the door was left open that we might be able to operate at the same spot,” she said. “This April, we received notice that our contract was terminated,” Miller said. “They said I should come up with a plan and they would look at it.” Copper spokeswoman Lau-

ren Pelletreau said the resort is committed to working with the stables and the Forest Service. “The stables facility will be moved, and the identified wetlands will be restored. Copper will continue to work with the stables operator, the U.S. Forest Service and Summit County to identify short-term and longterm plans in order to provide horseback riding for our Copper guests,” Pelletreau said. County planners first heard about the issue two weeks ago, when a resort planner initiated contact with county staff, according to planning director Jim Curnutte. But the upcoming wetlands work shouldn’t have been a surprise to anyone, he said. “Copper and the stables have known since last summer that the stables would be torn down,” Curnutte said. The resort’s updated base areas plan authorizes two potential locations for a permanent relocation of the stables, either in the vicinity of the A-Lift neighborhood or on a vacant lot near the Conoco station along Colorado Highway 91. Additionally, Curnutte said the stables could operate temporarily at any other locataion within the resort zoned for active recreation — as long as that spot meshes with the resort’s internal operational needs, he explained. Curnutte said he thinks that, if the resort, Forest Service and stables sit down together, they will be able to come up with a temporary plan to keep the operation going this summer.


Edith, who requested her last name not be used, is photographed in her backyard garden in Emeryville, Calif., on May 13. City Slicker Farms, a nonprofit that is working to improve access to fresh foods in urban areas, installed the garden.

Urban farms take root Suzanne Bohan



The din of a neighborhood gathering made it hard to hear Barbara Finnin as she strolled through a dense garden thriving on a once vacant lot in West Oakland. On all four corners near the fenced-in garden, a dozen adults, young and old, shouted greetings and comments. Some sat in white plastic chairs, others leaned against walls, and several swigged from bottles covered with brown paper bags. Two or three children played on the streets, which featured a couple of tidy homes, a few boarded-up ones and others in between. Ignoring the ruckus, Finnin, executive director of City Slicker Farms, pointed to the plum, mulberry, fig, cherry and apple trees, the climbing vines, and planting beds growing thick with produce such as lettuce, carrots, garlic and strawberries. On one side of the garden, honey bees unhurriedly entered and exited two white boxes, and building material lay on the floor of a partially built henhouse in the corner. Then lifelong West Oakland resident Charles Brown, 31, walked toward Finnin, smiling broadly with his hand outstretched. “You all are doing a pretty good job,” he tells Finnin, shaking her hand. “It’s great here. This is what we want to see. Gardens and fruit and everything we need.” There’s no grocery store in West Oakland, a low-income neighborhood of 23,000. A nearby corner market gamely sells some produce — cabbage, onions, potatoes, oranges and

apples — but the latter were bruised and old. In contrast, when the garden’s chained gate opens at 10 a.m. Saturdays, residents can buy inexpensive, freshly picked organic produce, newly gathered eggs and Oakland-made honey at a farm stand run by City Slicker’s, a nonprofit dedicated to developing urban agriculture in West Oakland. “People come super early for our honey and eggs,” Finnin said. Brown said his mother buys collard greens from the stand “to make the old recipes.” In counties in the vicinity of the Bay Area, there’s a similar burst of agriculture in formerly empty fields, vacant lots and backyards. Older farms, survivors of a long-gone pastoral era, also are facing a fresh future as new markets and policies support their operations. And a new generation of farmers dedicated to environmentally friendly practices and equitable distribution of fresh foods are starting new endeavors with colorful names. From 2002 to 2007, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported a surge in the growth of small farms in the Bay Area, with a 24 percent increase in Alameda County, 7 percent in Contra Costa County, 8 percent in San Mateo County, 4 percent in Santa Clara County, and 13 percent in Napa County. (The agency didn’t survey San Francisco.) It’s a trend occurring nationwide, as the number of U.S. farms grew 4 percent during that time. “We’ve seen growth in what we call ‘the new farmer,’’’ said Gail Raabe, agricultural commissioner for San Mateo County. She cited operations such as Pie

Ranch and Blue House Farm along the county’s coast, which sell organic produce, eggs and other products, while providing apprenticeships for young adults aspiring to learn about sustainable agriculture and what’s called food justice — ensuring widespread access to healthful foods, regardless of income level. Enthusiasm for urban farming has waxed and waned throughout the decades, said Hilary Melcarek, a graduate student at the University of CaliforniaSanta Cruz with an expertise in urban agriculture. Economic necessity fueled the growth of gardens during the Great Depression. And Melcarek said the “victory gardens” planted by millions during World War II supplied 40 percent of the nation’s produce. But that gardening devotion faded in the prosperous 1950s. In the 1970s, Melcarek said a backto-the-land movement launched a renewal of urban agriculture, but when the USDA dismantled its 17-year-old Urban Gardening Program in 1993, it reflected the waning interest in farming in and around cities. But this time, organizations backing the rebirth of urban agriculture speak of a movement that’s here to stay, in part to ensure the food security not just of low-income neighborhoods, but the entire region. “You never want to give up the ability to feed yourself. You don’t want to be relying on imported food alone,” said Raabe, the San Mateo County agricultural commissioner. And ensuring a local food supply means helping small operators survive, Raabe said. “It takes two things to farm, land and a farmer, and you have to protect both.”

Laureen Eck thought something was fishy about a check she received for a rental unit she has in Breckenridge. A quick trip to her Vail bank confirmed the hunch. Eck recently put a for-rent ad on Craigslist. She soon received a couple of e-mails from people interested in the unit, one from someone claiming to be a student, another from someone who said his overseas company was going to open an office in Breckenridge. Not long after, she received a cashier’s check for $6,000 to secure the unit, nearly $2,000 more than Eck will need to rent it. The check, ostensibly from a company in London, was drawn on a Texas bank. Although the people who contacted Eck hadn’t yet asked for their change from the check, it’s a common practice. People who become victims cash the checks, send part of the difference between the asking price and the check amount back to the scammers, the check bounces, and the victims can be out hundreds to thousands of dollars. Eck didn’t bite. She called her

If you’re contacted via e-mail for something you’re selling or renting, here are a few tips to protect yourself: ■ If someone is offering you more money than you’re asking, walk away. ■ Make sure you talk, by phone, to the person interested in your offer. ■ Don’t trust any offer you receive from outside the country. ■ Don’t believe anyone who’s already arranged shipping for an item. ■ Don’t cash a check that doesn’t have the bank’s phone number printed on it. If there is a number, call to confirm the check is valid.

attorney, then took the check to her bank, where a teller confirmed that it was bogus. The rental in Breckenridge still is for rent, but Eck would like to track down the people who tried to scam her. That’s hard to do. “These kinds of frauds are generally very large scale, and they’re hard to track,” Vail Police Department Sgt. Samantha Graves said. “We document reports and track leads until they run dry.” But, Graves added, just about anyone can send a bogus check. Although this is the first time anyone’s tried to run a scam on Eck, has seen several. That company is

a third-party agent for rentals, but James Bengala said that hasn’t stopped people from trying to send bogus checks to the company. “I’ll be we received a couple (of offers) a week,” Bengala said. When VailSkiVacations receives an obviously fraudulent offer, Bengala said the company will contact the shipping company that delivers the check. “We’ll ask them to flag the sender as someone who’s sending fraudulent items,” he said. “We’ll sometimes send an email telling them we’ve notified the authorities.” Bengala and Graves used the old line, “If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” And, Graves added, “Especially on Craigslist.” Eck said she’s probably going to do full background checks on potential renters from now on. Bengala had a couple of other hints. “If somebody just says, ‘I like your unit, let me send you a check,’ that’s a red flag,” he said. “There’s usually a lot more conversation involved. We don’t do business with anybody unless we can get them on the phone.”

Steamboat Pilot & Today | Section C


John F. Russell


No time to slow down


t’s that time of year. The next prep sports season isn’t scheduled to start for two months, and just about everyone who walks through the doors of the Steamboat Pilot & Today office expects to find the sports guys sitting back in their chairs, drinking one of those funny-colored adult beverages and surrounded by the smell of cheap sunblock. Yes, it might be true that this is a slow time of year for the sports department in many small towns across the United States, but in Steamboat Springs, things are just starting to heat up. In our town, the sports season never really seems to slow down — it simply shifts gears. This weekend, Steamboat is hosting world-class kayakers, top-level junior tennis players and a large contingent of youth lacrosse players. In the next few weeks, there will be a parade of youth baseball teams, more golf tournaments than you can swing a 5-iron at and enough sporting activity to mold Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange into a fine-tuned athlete. And of course, it wouldn’t be summer in our mountain valley without the rodeo, adult recreational softball leagues and hundreds of miles of footraces. I’ve spent nearly two decades covering this town, and I’m still impressed by the huge number of top-level athletes who call Steamboat home and the large number of activities available. There are times when I stop and wonder whether this active lifestyle, this love of sports and the desire to compete is normal in other communities or unique to Steamboat Springs? The fact is that it really doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is what a community offers to the people who live in it — and it’s clear that Steamboat has a lot to offer. So the challenge in the sports department isn’t finding enough to cover — it’s finding the time to cover more. Sure, I would love to spend several weeks relaxing in my chair, sipping on a drink and wondering how to spend my time before two-a-days start next August at Gardner Field. But the summer is too short and too filled with action for any reporter to ignore. Steamboat is a mix of the best that sports have to offer. The fall, winter and spring are dominated by prep sports, but the summer offers its own attractions and interests. The sports staff at the Pilot & Today may not get to cover the professional teams, but we get to cover worldclass athletes who love what they do all year. The summer is filled with a variety, and this small town has enough world-class athletes to fill the pages of any major metro paper. Yeah, it’s that time of year again, but when you live in Steamboat Springs, there is no time to slow down and relax — and that includes our sports department.

Custer finds home in goal

8th-grade lacrosse player shines in weekend tournament Luke Graham



Like most people growing up, Ben Custer wanted to score the goals. Now, the eighth-grader does whatever he can to stop them. Ben, who started playing goalie in sixth grade because no one else wanted to, has been doing double duty for the eighth-grade Steamboat Youth

Lacrosse teams. He gets between the pipes for both squads. “I’m the only guy that does it, but it’s worth it,” he said. “I chose to do it, and I think it’s fun.” It’s certainly fun when you play like Ben did on the opening day of the sixth annual Steamboat Classic Lacrosse Tournament. The tournament brought 35 teams from across the state

and Wyoming to compete in fifth-, sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade tournaments. Steamboat fielded a fifthgrade team, two sixth-grade teams, a seventh-grade team and two eighth-grade teams. Teams from Aspen, Summit, Vail, Grand Junction, Laramie, Wyo., and several from the Front Range all were in action. Maybe no player stood out more than Ben. The 14-year-old helped the Steamboat Red team

to a 2-0 start, giving up just two goals. He was equally impressive with the Steamboat White team, allowing just six goals and helping the team to a 1-1 record. “He’s a great listener. I think that’s how you become a great player at any sport,” said Neill Redfern, the SYL director and coach of the eighth-grade team. “He’s done a good job listening to coaches. More importantly, See Lacrosse, page 3C


Ben Custer prepares for a game during the sixth annual Steamboat Classic Lacrosse Tournament on Friday. Custer played goalie for both eighth-grade teams, helping Steamboat to a 3-1 record on the day.


Team loses shine

Nuggets fall in Game 3 against Lakers, 103-97 Arnie Stapleton




Sarah Hamilton tries to work through a wave Saturday at Charlie’s Hole in downtown Steamboat Springs. Hamilton, the only woman competing in the kayak rodeo at the Yampa River Festival, placed third in the event.

Festival makes waves

Kayakers rule, but plenty of different crafts find way into water


an Piano was the last kayaker into the rushing water of the Yampa River on Saturday during the Yampa River Festival’s kayak rodeo. He pushed away from the boulders lining the shore behind Bud Werner Memorial Library and into Charlie’s Hole, his black wetsuit and black lifejacket blending into his black Jackson kayak seamlessly — Johnny Cash on the Yampa, with a don’t-mess-with me scowl to complete the costume. Intimidating. “That’s the idea,” Piano said. Only, when he said that, the attitude was gone. His face was split with a smile, and he glowed with victory. Piano intimidated his way to a win Saturday, boating past almost a dozen opponents to win the kayak rodeo at the 29th annual Yampa River Festival. “It was a lot of fun,” Piano said. “The main idea of the whole thing is to show

SUNDAYFOCUS STORY BY JOEL REICHENBERGER how much fun this can be, how great the C-hole is.” Rain swept across town Saturday, midway through the first day of the three-day festival. That the discomfort did little to thin the crowds probably says something about the residents of Steamboat Springs, who turned out in force to celebrate as the river roared. Plenty weren’t about to let its chilly temperatures or a little rain spoil the fun. A long line of rafts tackled Charlie’s Hole, many wild-eyed locals flying from rubbery safety into frigid waters. Others attacked the water feature in tubes in the second-annual tube rodeo. Josh Burton donned a business suit for that honor.

But the day belonged to the kayakers. “That was great,” event organizer Pete Van De Carr said after the kayaking event. “Our local kayakers can hold their own with anyone. That’s always great.” Piano was one of six to advance from the opening round, joining Sarah Hamilton, Brian Berger, Adam Mayo, Quinn Connell and Rick Franken in the semifinals. Then, he again advanced. Piano, Hamilton and Berger made the finals. “The best trick I did was the McNasty,” Piano said. “In the semifinals, I had a really bad ride, and Sarah had a really good ride. She’s my girlfriend, and I was afraid she was going to beat me.” Not this time. Piano hung in the wave longer than his opponents and landed more tricks. The combination proved enough to give him the win. See River Fest, page 3C

Kobe Bryant’s 3-pointer wasn’t nearly as dramatic as LeBron James’ but equally effective. Bryant’s big shot over J.R. Smith gave Los Angeles a onepoint lead with just more than a minute left Saturday night and sparked the Lakers to a 103-97 victory against the downtrodden Denver Nuggets for a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference finals. Bryant, who scored 41 points, went 5-of-6 on free throws to ice it after his 3-pointer gave Los Angeles a 96-95 lead. Carmelo Anthony scored 21 points but just three after halftime for Denver, which lost at home for the first time since March 9. He was 4-for-13 in his worst performance of the postseason. Before Saturday night, the Nuggets had been dominant at home in the playoffs. They ran away with all six games at Pepsi Center against the New Orleans Hornets and Dallas Mavericks by an average of 17.5 points. Chauncey Billups’ two free throws made it 99-97, but Bryant sank two more free throws with 22 seconds remaining, Billups missed a 3-pointer and Bryant capped his big night with two more foul shots with 12 seconds left.

Mushing to the big screen Local dogsledder Krista Halsnes featured in documentary Luke Graham



Krista Halsnes wasn’t sure how she’d react under the glitz and glamour of the cameras and lights. But placed in her natural setting of sled dog racing, and the 15-year-old Steamboat Springs High School student FILE PHOTO Krista Halsnes plays with one of her dogs earlier this winter.

trio, got in touch with Krista during the winter to see if they could do a documentary about her. Then, in early March, filmmakers Molly Cherington, Michael Lloyd and Hannah Vanderlan made the trip to Steamboat Springs for a weekend. The crew filmed Krista in Columbine running her dogs, as well as in the local family’s home. “It was definitely a different experience,” Krista said. “I got used to it pretty quick. I

was comfortable in front of the camera. I was pretty much winging it and going with the flow.” The Film Dailies entered the five-minute film, called “Sled,” in the second annual Spirit of the Outdoors Film Festival — a Boulder-based festival that celebrates the outdoors. Earlier this week, the film was named the winner. See Sled, page 3C

Piano won the event and earned the right to Charlie’s Hole downtown. compete Monday in the Paddling Life Pro Invitational in Steamboat Springs.

He’s very mature.” Ben wanted to score the goals when he first started playing lacrosse in sixth grade. But his team didn’t have a goalie, and his friends pushed him toward the position. After two weeks, Custer said there was no way he’d play anything else. “I was there just to be there at first,” Ben said. “I did want

to score the goals, but goalie was just what was for me in the end. Now, it’s all about stopping the goals.” Playing with two teams can be trying at times. Ben said the two teams play different styles of lacrosse. Still, he said his outlook from game to game never changes. “The style we play is much different,” he said. “I play the same way for both teams. I try my best for both teams.” Ben said he is planning on playing for the high school team next year and hopes to make

the varsity squad in goal by his sophomore or junior season. Redfern said with Ben’s style and attitude, those goals — no pun intended — shouldn’t be a problem. “Our emphasis isn’t winning and losing games; it’s about a positive athletic experience,” Redfern said. “When you have players like Ben who treat new players with great respect and are nothing but positive and encouraging, that makes the program a lot stronger.” In other action, the seventh-

grade team went 1-1 on Saturday. The sixth-grade red team — playing in the seventh-grade division — finished the day 0-2. The sixth-grade white team went 0-2, and the fifth-grade team went 0-2. Action starts at 8 a.m. today and runs until 5 p.m. All eighth-grade games are played at Gardner Field at Steamboat Springs High School, with the rest of the games at the Emerald fields. — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail

Krista plans to compete in multiple events in winter Sled continued from 1C “We took a look at an incredible person doing something extraordinary in the outdoors,” Cherington said. “I have a personal interest in dog mushing and an interest in dog mushing in Colorado.” It was that personal interest that led Cherington and The Film Dailies to Krista in the first place. Cherington is the cousin of Susan Butcher — the most accomplished female Iditarod musher ever. Krista said throughout middle school, she did a fair share of projects about Butcher. When she found out about Cherington’s connection to Butcher, it made the process all the more easy. “I’ve always been inspired by Susan,” Krista said. “I guess I found out just after I met these people. I was very comfortable with them, and it was pretty easy.” Cherington said the reception to the film has been great so far. She said the five-minute format works well and that they’re starting to research

MLB A-Rod, Yankees rally for 3 in 9th to beat Lidge 4C |

Steamboat Pilot & Today • Sunday, May 24, 2009



Alex Rodriguez hit a tying homer off Brad Lidge in the ninth inning and Melky Cabrera capped the three-run rally with an RBI single, giving the New York Yankees a 5-4 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday. John Mayberry Jr. hit a three-run homer in his major league debut and Raul Ibanez also connected, helping the Phillies build a 4-2 lead for new starter J.A. Happ. Lidge (0-2) came on in the ninth and immediately got in trouble. Johnny Damon drew a leadoff walk and stole second. After Mark Teixeira struck out, Rodriguez smacked a full-count pitch over the short porch in right for his seventh homer after missing the first 28 games after hip surgery. Robinson Cano followed with a single, stole second and scored without a play on Cabrera’s single. Jose Veras (3-1) got one out in the ninth for the win.

Rockies 4, Tigers 3 DETROIT

Todd Helton and Chris Iannetta homered to back an efficient performance by Jason Marquis, and the Colorado Rockies ended the Detroit Tigers’ seven-game winning streak. Marquis (6-3) allowed three runs on six hits and a walk in 7 2/3 innings to win his second straight start. Randy Flores got

the final out of the eighth, and Huston Street pitched the ninth for his sixth save in six tries and the 100th of his career. Slumping Armando Galarraga (3-4) allowed four runs on six hits and a walk in 5 1/3 innings. Galarraga now is 0-4 in five May starts with a 9.92 ERA after going 3-0 with a 1.85 ERA in four April outings.

Rangers 6, Astros 3 HOUSTON

Nelson Cruz homered twice, and Hank Blalock also connected as the Rangers won their second straight in this season’s Lone Star series. Scott Feldman pitched a season-high 6 2-3 innings, and Blalock finished with three hits for the Rangers. Feldman (3-0) allowed three runs and five hits. Miguel Tejada and Geoff Blum homered for Houston. Brian Moehler (1-3) gave up six runs and nine hits in five-plus innings.

Cardinals 5, Royals 0 ST. LOUIS

Kyle Lohse threw eight innings of four-hit ball and the Cardinals shut out Kansas City for the second straight time, giving the rotation fifth straight dominant outing. Lohse (4-3) struck out six with no walks, shaking off three straight losses to start the month. Cardinals starters have allowed one run in 36 2/3 innings during a five-game winning streak. Nick Stavinoha had two

Mets 3, Red Sox 2 BOSTON

Omir Santos hit a two-run homer off Jonathan Papelbon with two outs in the ninth inning, a drive that initially was ruled a double, and the New York Mets rallied to beat the Boston Red Sox. The long flyball to left field bounced off the shelf above the Green Monster and was called a double. But after the umpires went into the tunnel for the television replay — the first in Fenway Park history — crew chief Joe West came out and signaled for a home run. Pedro Feliciano (1-1) pitched the eighth. J.J. Putz pitched the ninth for his second save, getting some fielding help from third baseman David Wright on a hard grounder down the line with a runner on first. Shortstop Ramon Martinez, who made two errors Friday night, stabbed Mike Lowell’s hard grounder in the hole for the final out. Papelbon (0-1) had been 11 for 11 in save opportunities. CHICAGO

first-inning RBIs for the second straight game. Skip Schumaker added his third homer in the third. Miguel Olivo doubled twice, but no runner made it past second base for the Royals, who have lost 11 of 14 and fell one game below .500 (21-22) for the first time since they were 2-3 on April 11. Luke Hochevar (0-2) retired the first two hitters in the first before running into trouble.

White Sox 4, Pirates 0




����������� ��������

Clayton Richard struck out a career-high eight during six innings, Alexei Ramirez homered in his second straight game, and the Chicago White Sox shut out the Pittsburgh Pirates again. Richard (1-0) allowed four hits for his first victory since August, and the White Sox won for the fourth time in five games. They haven’t allowed a run since a franchise recordtying 20-1 loss to Minnesota on Thursday.

Braves 4, Blue Jays 3



General Building Contractors

Derek Lowe pitched into the eighth inning and drove in the go-ahead run with one of his two hits, helping the Atlanta Braves send the Toronto Blue Jays to their fifth straight loss. Lowe (6-2) allowed two runs and five hits in 7 1-3 innings to move into a tie for the National League lead in wins. Toronto’s Casey Janssen (0-1) gave up three runs and eight hits during

six innings in his first start since 2006 and his first appearance since 2007.

Twins 6, Brewers 2 MINNEAPOLIS

Joe Mauer had three hits, a homer and two RBIs to help Anthony Swarzak win his major league debut for the Minnesota Twins and ensuring Milwaukee’s first series loss in five weeks. Swarzak (1-0) sprinkled five singles during seven shutout innings, walking two and striking out three. Mauer hit his ninth home run — his career high is 13 — in just his 21st game, a two-out liner in the fifth against Braden Looper (4-3). Mauer scored three runs and drew a walk, too, and has hit in 18 of those 21 games since coming off the disabled list.

Orioles 2, Nationals 1 WASHINGTON

Aubrey Huff drove in the tiebreaking run with a pinch-hit triple in the seventh inning, and the Baltimore Orioles made the most of three hits in a victory against the Washington Nationals. The Nationals drew their second-largest crowd of the season (31,833) for this interleague matchup of teams located 40 miles apart on the BaltimoreWashington Parkway. Gregg Zaun hit a one-out double off Julian Tavarez (1-4) before being thrown out at third on a grounder to shortstop. Huff, omitted from the starting lineup because of a 1-for-18 slump, stepped in to hit for Brian Bass.


Indians 7, Reds 6 CINCINNATI

Asdrubal Cabrera drove in the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning, overshadowing Joey Votto’s remarkable return from a week of medical tests — homers in his first two at-bats — and rallying the Cleveland Indians past the Cincinnati Reds. The Indians overcame a pair of deficits, with Cabrera’s runscoring grounder — his third RBI of the game — completing a rally that started against David Weathers (0-1).

D-Backs 8, Athletics 7, 11 innings OAKLAND, CALIF.

Stephen Drew singled in the go-ahead run in the top of the 11th, and the Arizona Diamondbacks won their season-high fourth straight game. Oakland’s Jason Giambi hit his 400th career home

Giants 5, Mariners 1 SEATTLE

Juan Uribe got the big hit San Francisco had been missing, a two-out bases-clearing double in a five-run eighth inning, and Matt Cain tossed his first complete game this season in the Giants’ 5-1 win against the Seattle Mariners on Saturday night. On a maddening streak of failing to come up with a clutch hit, Uribe gave the Giants just that. With two outs and the bases loaded, Uribe lined a 1-0 pitch from Seattle reliever Mark Lowe to the wall in rightcenter field, scoring all three runners and ending the their 3-for-35 slump with runners in scoring position.

Padres 3, Cubs 1 SAN DIEGO

Brian Giles drove in two runs for the second straight night, and the San Diego Padres beat the struggling Chicago Cubs to extend their season-high winning streak to eight games. The Cubs lost their season-high sixth straight. Right-hander Randy Wells (0-1) hadn’t allowed a run in his first 20 big league innings before giving up Giles’ two-run double with two outs in the fourth inning.

Evan Longoria hit a tiebreaking single in eighth inning to add to his major league-leading RBI total, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the hapless Florida Marlins.

Evgeni Malkin had two goals and an assist, and the Pittsburgh Penguins pushed Carolina to the brink of elimination by routing the Hurricanes, 6-2, on Saturday night. Sidney Crosby added a goal and an assist for the Penguins, who lead the series, 3-0. They scored twice in the final minute of the first period, then added two more goals in 40 seconds of the third to seal their fourth straight victory. The defending Eastern Conference champions can sweep the best-of-seven series Tuesday night and make a return trip to the Stanley Cup finals. Ruslan Fedotenko had a goal and an assist, Bill Guerin also scored, and Craig Adams was credited with a late goal after Carolina’s Jussi Jokinen won a draw but sent the puck down the ice and into an empty net. CHRIS SEWARD/RALEIGH NEWS & OBSERVER Matt Cullen and Sergei The Pittsburgh Penguins’ Evgeni Malkin gets ready to score his first goal against Carolina Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward durSamsonov scored for the Hur- ing the first period in Game 3 of the NHL Eastern Conference Final. The Penguins defeated the Hurricanes, 6-2, at the RBC Center ricanes, who haven’t lost a play- in Raleigh, N.C., on Saturday. off series since Detroit beat them in the 2002 Cup finals. In their only other postseason appearance since, they won the Cup in 2006. History isn’t on the Hurricanes’ side. Only twice has a team rallied from a 3-0 series deficit to win a series, and it hasn’t happened since the New York Islanders did it against Pittsburgh in 1975. That trend doesn’t figure to be in much jeopardy, as long as the Penguins’ young stars keep playing like this. Malkin has 16 points in six games, including nine points in this series. He followed up his first career NHL playoff hat trick by threatening to do it again with his sixth straight multipoint game. Crosby has 10 points in his last five. They helped the Penguins pepper Cam Ward for a third straight game. The Carolina goalie turned aside 34 shots but was overwhelmed again by Pittsburgh. The Penguins, who outshot the Hurricanes, 73-53, in the first two games, held a 40-34 shots advantage. Marc-Andre Fleury made 32 saves for the Penguins. Malkin and Crosby scored 30 seconds apart late in the first to turn a 1-1 tie into a two-goal Penguins lead. Crosby put Pittsburgh ahead to stay when he beat Joni Pitkanen to the net, took a pretty cross-ice pass from Guerin and tapped the puck past Ward with 42.2 seconds left. Malkin made it 3-1 with 11.9 seconds remaining when he tracked the puck down in the low circle, skated up the goal line and stuffed in the puck for his second tally. That came after he erased the Hurricanes’ early lead and made them pay for a fouledup clearing attempt by Tim Gleason, using some nifty stickwork to skate in close on Ward and beat him with a wrist shot. The 22-year-old Russian’s two goals brought chants of “MVP” from the few hundred Penguins fans who infiltrated the RBC Center. The building was rocking early, with the desperate Hurricanes feeding off an ampedup crowd of Caniacs. Cullen cashed in on that early emotional burst, taking a pretty feed from Patrick Eaves and wristing it past Fleury’s stick. Notes: Pittsburgh D Sergei Gonchar had two assists. ... The Hurricanes have led for a total of 13 minutes, 45 seconds through three games. ... Carolina LW Ryan Bayda was in the lineup two nights after he received a match penalty for high-sticking near the end of Game 2. He was fined $2,500, but his automatic one-game suspension was rescinded by the NHL. ... RW Tuomo Ruutu skated for the Hurricanes after leaving Game 1 early and missing Game 2 because of a lower body injury.

Local girl far from a fluke


teamboat Springs’ Sarah Hamilton’s run to the finals of the freestyle portion of last year’s Paddling Life Pro Kayaking Invitational was, to say the least, unexpected. It left several of her competitors fuming and led the way for a change in the way the event is scored. If Hamilton has her way, the field of this year’s event again will be left scratching its collective head. Hamilton is a 27-year-old river rat who fell in love with the sport of kayaking on the Yampa River. Her participation last year was as much a gift as it was a prize earned through her competitiveness. Once in the field — boating next to professionals who travel the world for kayaking — she seemed right at home. She finished third in the freestyle event and was fourth overall. Hamilton showed Steamboat Springs that one good day was far from a fluke. Hamilton won the women’s division of Saturday’s Yampa River Festival kayak rodeo. That title is largely a joke, though, and she said as much as she slid into her bright orange boat before the competition. “I’d better win,” she said to a group of children splashing in the water. “I’m the only girl out there today.” Barring some sort of Titanic-esque sinking, she was the winner. “Maybe,” she continued, “I’ll beat some of the boys.” She did more than win the faux women’s title or beat a few of the most inexperienced boys, though. She darn near beat them all. She ended up third, but not before putting a scare even into her boyfriend, all-around kayak rodeo champ Dan Piano. Hanging in the Charlie’s Hole, spinning and flipping, she matched her opponents move for move. Hamilton’s been strong enough in the water that she was a sure thing to return to the field of Monday’s pro invitational. “I don’t know if it’s the token local girl invite, but whatever,” she said. “I don’t care. I’ll take it.” She may be primed for an even better day than she had last year. It was the run down Fish Creek where she stubbed her toe last year. That dropped her off the podium. She said a year of practice weaving between the boulders has been a huge help. I’m not much for predicting things when it comes to kayaking. All but the most obvious of tricks look to me like a wet dog flopping around in a bathtub. Still, I will venture a few guesses about Monday’s competition. It’s impossible to pick against Tanya Faux in the women’s competition. The Australian dominator has won the event in each of the three previous years it’s been contested. It’s foolish to pick against Stephen Wright, who has won the men’s title twice. And it’s dumb to pick against Sarah Hamilton. She’s the local girl who’s not supposed to have a chance, but she’s shown again and again that she’s perfectly at home against the toughest competition.

Steamboat company offers riverboarding lessons

he heart beats fast just standing on a boulder on the shore of the Yampa, riverboard in hand. It feels like a locomotive in the chest after jumping into the chilly waters — board leading the STORY BY way — and rises to the JOEL throat even REICHENBERGER faster than water fills a wetsuit as body and board turn to head down river. Charlie’s Hole, domain that local kayakers still are at least a month away from ceding to lazy summer tubers, awaits. “Let’s do it,” Danny Tebbenkamp shouted, his voice almost lost in the roar of the Yampa. On Saturday, plenty did, and Tebbenkamp is betting more locals will once they get a taste of his riverboards. Tebbenkamp has owned Pacific Spas and Pools for several years, but this spring, he started an entrepreneurial effort in addition to his work with Pacific. His new company, Boardom Bound, offers lessons in riverboarding, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, kitesurfing, snowkiting and pretty much anything else Tebbenkamp stumbles across. “One day, I just wondered if there was something else you could do on the river,” Tebbenkamp said. “I just pulled up Google and typed in ‘riverboarding’. Turns out, it existed.”


The not-so-boogie board That initial curiosity led Tebbenkamp to a riverboard supplier and instructor on the Front Range. Eventually, it helped lead him to his new company. On Saturday, as Tebbenkamp demonstrated the boards at the Yampa River Festival, it led to a seemingly endless line of questions from perplexed onlookers.

Boardom Bound What: Steamboat Springs-based company that offers lessons in many board-based water and snow activities including wakeboarding, wakesurfing and riverboarding. Cost: A 4 to 5 hour river boarding lesson with Boardom Bound costs $250 for one person. The price drops to $75 per boarder with a group of between four and six. For who: Owner Danny Tebbenkamp said riverboarding can be for the whole family. Boarders are supplied wet suits and life jackets and can chose either raging or lazy parts of the river. For more information, check out www.

Tebbenkamp first refers to a riverboard as a “boogie board that helps an adventure-minded soul ride the river.” Put away that first thought, though — these boards bear nothing in common with the thin panel of Styrofoam available for $2 on beaches across the world. The devices look more like a kneeboard meant to be dragged behind a boat than a traditional boogie board. A plethora of handles offer enough places to grab hold, and the boards are plenty light enough to haul around and buoyant enough to survive the rushing water of the Yampa. Tebbenkamp sells boards, but for the most part, he just offers lessons. He stocks boards from two different makers, both with Colorado origins.

A different kind of ride Rick Leitner stumbled upon riverboarding about six years ago. After a few years running rivers, he and a friend started a company, Rocky Mountain RiverBoards, and they build their boards near Boulder. He said he has helped hundreds of people take their first leap into a river with a board and has noticed the sport draws a unique audience. “We don’t convert many people,” Leitner said. “The hardcore kayakers, they’re already really into that, so they don’t want to try any-

thing new. What we’ve noticed is a whole new generation of whitewater enthusiasts love these things.” Like a kayak, a riverboard leaves its rider soaked. A wet suit and swimming fins help ease the leap into the water, but from Tebbenkamp’s “Let’s go!” shout, it’s a wet affair. Riders can either just drift down the Yampa or try to surf in the man-made features. Surfing is a sure way to eat a lot of water, but that didn’t deter any of those flying from the Yampa’s shores Saturday. “It’s more intense than kayaking,” said Levi Gallas, who traveled to Steamboat with Leitner to show off the boards. Gallas and three other regular riverboarders spent the weekend plowing through Charlie’s Hole and roaming up and down the Yampa. “You’re right down in the water,” he said. “The river owns you.” JOEL REICHENBERGER/STAFF

100 years of the Depot Local train station has been through many phases Margaret Hair



David Jolly Age: 38 Occupation: Supervisor for UPS; office manager, Steamboat Springs Arts Council Place of birth: Warner Robbins, Ga.

In 1906, big-name members of the Steamboat Springs community started an effort to bring a railroad to town. By January 1909, the first passenger train on the Moffat Road had come through town; six months later, the station was

ready for full-time use. During the next 60 years, the Depot transformed the way things functioned in Steamboat Springs, allowing a reasonable route for visitors — especially those with skis — to come through town, for out-of-county commerce to arrive, for mining to boom, and for culture and art to work its way into and out of Routt County.

In 1968, time caught up with the Denver and Rio Grand Western Railroad Co., and the Depot went defunct. It sat that way for three years, until a riled-up group of Routt County residents started calling for its restoration. By 1972, the Steamboat Springs Arts Council had formed; by 1973, the train


See Depot, page 2D

The first train arrived in Steamboat Springs in December 1908, shown in this photo.

Q. When did you move to Routt County, and what brought you here? A. My wife and I both came to Steamboat in 2001 after working for about nine years at Disney World in Orlando, Fla. We both wanted a change of pace, and Heidi had the opportunity of a lifetime to run her very own dance studio in this charming little mountain town. She’s done very well and is still running Northwest Ballet Studio quite successfully. Q. What three things would you want people to know about you? A. 1. Yes ladies, I am married (and very happily, too). 2. I would love nothing more than to entertain the good citizens of Steamboat with endless plays, musicals, dance shows and puppeteering, but until a real stage is erected and fully funded, it will have to remain a dream. 3. And no, I don’t do children’s parties. Q. What did you want to be when you grew up? A. Oddly enough, I always thought I was going to be a chef. I never took any culinary classes, but I would thrive at creating my own scrumptious concoctions and original dishes in the kitchen. But once I hit the stage in high school and college, acting and performing took over. It’s been my passion ever since. Q. If you could invite any four people to dinner, who would they be, and what would you talk about? A. Steven Spielberg; I’d simply ask if there were any upcoming projects he has that I would be suited for — and maybe bounce a few script ideas I have brewing in my head off of him. Jim Henson; pretty much the same conversation as with Mr. Spielberg, but revolving around the Muppets. Bob Iger; I have some great money-making plans for the Disney Theme Parks on both coasts in exchange for my own personal chateau built right on the premises. And my wife, Heidi. Just because I don’t get to spend as much time with her as I’d like to. Q. In the Meatloaf song, “I’d do anything for love, but I won’t do that,” what is that? A.

Bear has sweet tooth

No way to sugar coat it: Animals can prove to be a nuisance

S Bearing bear season Jim Haskins, area wildlife manager for the Colorado Division of Wildlife, said bears are attracted to bird feeders. Homeowners are encouraged to bring in birdfeeders each night, but if they are unable to take in the feeders, it’s best to put a piece of plywood or lumber with a tack strip under the feeder to deter bears from walking under it. Homeowners also may want to place a strand of electric fencing around the yard to keep bears out. Steamboat Springs Police Department Capt. Joel Rae said his officers will issue tickets to homeowners for unsecured trash containers. All trash containers should be either bear-resistant or placed in a bear-resistant enclosure, he said. A first-offense ticket is $100 but may be suspended or reduced upon proof of purchase of a bear-resistant container. A second ticket is $150, and third and subsequent violations require a municipal court appearance. The court then can issue fines as much as $999.

andie Ihlenfeldt was the unwitting host to quite a party at her house Tuesday. As she was away from her home on Mark Twain Lane on Tuesday night, a guest broke through a screened window into her home and ate a dessert she had made earlier in the day. But her guest wasn’t just after the brownies. He also ripped into a bag of powdered sugar and ate honey, out of a container shaped like a bear. The intruder, either satisfied or scared away by Ihlenfeldt returning to her home, ran back out the window, leaving a set of powdered-sugar paw prints in the kitchen. “A little bear came in and he said, ‘Well look, brownies, powdered sugar and honey, she must have known I was coming for dessert,’” Ihlenfeldt said. “He came in with muddy footprints, and he left with powderedsugar footprints.” The bear didn’t do much damage

SUNDAYFOCUS STORY BY ZACH FRIDELL to the house, other than a broken window screen, some claw marks where he pulled himself in and a little damage to the refrigerator he apparently tried to open, Ihlenfeldt said. “He just had a ball … truthfully, it was a matter of cleaning up the funny powdered-sugar footprints all over the house,” she said. “It wasn’t horrible; it was just weird that an animal has been scurrying around in my house.” Even with little damage to the house, the Colorado Division of Wildlife Area Wildlife Manager Jim Haskins said several bears in the area have become a nuisance. One was relocated Thursday to near the Wyoming border. “I think the situation we’ve got up on Mark Twain (Lane) is probably a

sow who’s been here and is used to human food sources,” he said. “This is probably not the first litter of cubs she’s raised where she’s taught them to utilize human food sources.” Haskins said the bear that broke into Ihlenfeldt’s house likely was one of the sow’s two cubs, perhaps the same cub that was tranquilized and moved Thursday after the cub broke into a trash can near Steamboat Boulevard. “The real problem is the sow. She’ll probably breed again this year,” he said. Haskins said his office would relocate the sow and her other cub if they are given the opportunity, but older bears are more likely to return to the place they were captured and more likely to return to human food sources.

Soda Creek students learn safety techniques Elementary school children given presentations for Emergency Services Week Jack Weinstein



Steamboat Springs Police Officer Josh Carrell slapped his handcuffs on 10-year-old Oscar Gilbert on Thursday morning. No, Oscar wasn’t under arrest. He was merely the lucky volunteer chosen from the group of Soda Creek Elementary School fourth-graders for the first presentation of Emergency Services Week. Oscar’s classmates raised hands and shouts of “me, me, me,” weren’t enough to garner MATT STENSLAND/STAFF Soda Creek Elementary School fifth-grader Connor Frasier finds out what it feels them the privilege of experienclike to be cuffed by Steamboat Springs Police Department school resource officer Josh ing what it’s like to be cuffed.

with expressions of jealous awe on their faces. As Carrell explained how the cuffs worked, he decided to have a little fun with Oscar before releasing him. “What if I told you I forgot the key?” he asked. “I wouldn’t be very happy,” Oscar said. Carrell, ordinarily the school resource officer at Steamboat Springs High School, was joined by representatives from Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue, the U.S. Forest Service and dispatchers from Routt County, to give safety presentations to second-, fourth- and fifth-grade students as part of Emergency Services Week. Brande O’Hare, counselor at

Soda Creek Elementary, said the presentations occur annually in preparation for summer activities the students may encounter in the county. She said the presentations addressed fire, forest, bicycle, camping and home alone safety, while making sure the students knew how to call 911. “It’s kind of a culmination of everything we’ve talked about all year,” she said. O’Hare added that the fire department has a different program for kindergartners, first- and third-graders during Fire Prevention Week in October. Debbi Funston, the public See Safety Week, page 3D

Haskins: Bear sightings should diminish in coming weeks Bears continued from 1D may be tolerated in the community if neighbors are understanding, Haskins said. One bear, frequently spotted near Creel Lane, along Fish Creek, has behaved itself for the most part, he said. “That bear has really not been into too much trouble. It’s been around, and it’s possibly raided a couple bird feeders,” he said. The DOW will relocate bears when necessary, but Haskins said it’s very difficult to find a place to move a bear, particularly one that has been in trouble. Creel Lane resident Glenda Hachenberger said she was worried the cub was becoming too comfortable with people as she watched the bear clamber up a large pine tree in her backyard Thursday. “This little cub has been hanging around for the last couple of years. He’s not afraid,” she said. “I do hope they’ll move this little guy somewhere. He’s going to get hurt or give someone a heart attack.” The Creel Lane bear is one of six or seven bears known in the areas, Haskins said. Because the plants and berries in the wild are not yet ripe, this is the time of year when bears often make their way into town, but Haskins said the number of bear sightings should diminish in the coming weeks. As long as residents take care to secure their trash and


The bear left behind muddy footprints on his way in and powdered sugar footprints on his way out of the Ihlenfeldt house on Mark Twain Lane.

A bear broke through the window screen of Sandie Ihlenfeldt’s house May 19 on his way to the kitchen for brownies, powdered sugar and honey.

food, living with bears in the neighborhood is not considered dangerous. “It’s really about establishing a comfort zone,” he said. “We rarely, rarely have what I would call a dangerous interaction with bears.” Even so, he said bears are a serious issue in town. “I understand totally why (residents) are concerned, and they should not take it lightly, and we do not take it lightly when they begin to go into houses,” he said. “It’s something we can’t tolerate and accept because even if a bear doesn’t bite you but gives you a heart attack, that’s something we can’t stand.” Haskins recommended not leaving screen doors open at night or when the house is

unoccupied, and taking birdfeeders inside at night or placing plywood with tack strips underneath the bird feeder to deter bears. Steamboat Springs Police Department Capt. Joel Rae said his office also is stepping up enforcement against homeowners who do not secure their trash in a bear-resistant trash container or a regular trash container in a bear-proof enclosure. Fines start at $100 for a first offense, but that can be suspended or reduced upon proof of purchase of a bear-resistant trash container. Fines increase for subsequent offenses. Officers also routinely use beanbag rounds or rubber bullets designed to get the bears


out of residential areas. “It’s just a reminder that this is not a friendly place to be, and to get them back into the woods and out of town,” he said. Rae said that on one such call, one officer was charged by a bear, but the bear turned away at the last minute. If residents do see a bear, Rae said they should call 911 instead of approaching the bear themselves. And Ihlenfeldt said she plans to make sure bears aren’t invited to any more parties. “We always leave the windows open in summer, but that’s going to change,” she said. — To reach Zach Fridell, call 871-4208, or e-mail

Arts council will celebrate milestone with July art show Depot continued from 1D


Depot had been converted into the Depot Art Center through an effort led by arts advocate Eleanor Bliss. This year, the Depot turns 100, and the Steamboat Springs Arts Council turns 37. The nonprofit group will celebrate its decadesold home with a non-juried art show opening July 3, titled “On Track: Celebrating 100 Years of the Depot,” and with a tobe-announced series of events in late August. This timeline is made up of bits and pieces from the Tread of Pioneers Museum archives and Steamboat Pilot back issues, showing us how the Depot got on track, derailed and got back on:

Arts and Humanities celebrates its first anniversary and described its new home in an annual report: “In May 1972, shortly after its formation, the council leased the Depot from the Town of Steamboat Springs. It took on the responsibility of renovating and operating the building as a theater, auditorium, meeting place and art center for the community. To make this possible, local residents of all ages and interests have written letters, raised money, sold tickets, taught crafts, decorated for Christmas, moved pianos, scrubbed floors, and scraped and painted walls.” 1976: Last cattle car leaves Steamboat. 1978: The council commissions a plan for restoration and conversation of the building from the University of Colorado at Denver. First-floor plans featured a lounge and reception area, box office, large multipurpose space and stage with a makeup area and dressing room.

Yampa camp of CCC workers now operating 75 YEARS AGO From the Friday, May 25, 1934, edition of The Steamboat Pilot: L.R. Rist, supervisor of the White River national forest, spent 10 days at the CCC camp near Yampa last week. A fleet of Army trucks came in Tuesday loaded with equipment for the camp and about 200 arrived by special train from Texas the same night and were transported to the camp. They were a happy lot but had a mighty hungry look after their long ride. The camp is situated on a beautiful spot on the upper Bear River about 10 miles above Yampa in the heavy timber and well arranged for comfort and health. A large mess hall will be the chief attraction for the boys, with large, roomy tents for sleeping quarters. One of the first pieces of work for the boys will be repairing the upper end of the main road to the camp. A part of this will be the county road where the county will cooperate and the remainder within the boundaries of the forest.

Alfreda and Roger White Friends and family gathered in Steamboat Springs on May 15 to celebrate the 45th wedding anniversary of Roger and Freda White, who were married May 15, 1964, at The Little White Chapel in Las Vegas. They raised four children in the San Francisco Bay Area before moving to Colorado upon Roger’s retirement in 1991. Roger passed away at home in Steamboat on May 12, 2009.

BIRTHS Gavin Xavier Wittlinger, son of Jennifer and David Wittlinger, of Steamboat Springs, was born at 10:50 p.m. May 13, 2009. He weighed 8 pounds, 1 ounce and was 20 1/2 inches long. His grandparents are Nell Singleton, of Pasadena, Md., and Tim and Diane Wittlinger, of Birmingham, Mich. He has a sister, Caroline.

Program a good refresher education coordinator for the fire department, said the presentations also familiarize the students with the uniformed personnel in town. “The kids see them as people,” she said. Second-grader Reilly Mewborn said she learned what to do if her house caught on fire, not to call 911 if it’s not an emergency, and how to safely ride a bike. But there was a different reason the 8-year-old was excited about the presentations from the fire and police departments. “I really wanted to see how they dressed,” she said. Reilly’s classmate Mac Moody, 8, said his favorite presentation was from the Forest Service because he heard the story about a New Mexico forest fire and

a black bear cub who was trapped in the blaze but eventually rescued and taken in by the firefighters who saved him. “They named him Smokey,” he said. “Soon it’s his 65th birthday. He tells people not to mess with matches and not to start forest fires. And not to play with lighters.” Fifth-graders Camden Berka and Libby Stanford said that after six years in school, most of what they learned during the presentations for Emergency Services Week was a refresher. But Camden, 11, said he liked seeing the people who work at the different places in town who might help him one day. “It’s just fun to learn the equipment and techniques they use,” he added.

Pioneers will meet in Craig on June 16 for picnic The pioneers of Routt and Moffat counties will hold their annual picnic on Saturday, June 16, in the Odd Fellows hall in Craig. It is the event eagerly looked forward to by the men and women who subdued the wilderness and have built Northwestern Colorado to its present position. They opened the trails, built the first churches and schools, and laid the foundation for our present position of organized society. Long ago, it wisely was decided that Routt and Moffat counties should join in the celebration. They both were in one big county in the early days and imaginary lines cut no figure with the pioneers.

Routt County to take part in social welfare survey Harold Drinkwater, of Denver, will supervise a survey of Routt and Moffat counties as part of the statewide local welfare survey of Colorado. He will cover the Moffat county territory first and will take Routt second. The plan originally provided for the study of child welfare activities only, but the project has grown and now the scope of the survey has been widened to include the four fields of health, care of families and children in their own and foster homes, care of children and adults away from home, and the organization of social forces. If the relief agencies had known the conditions a year ago, their work would have been easier, Mr. Drinkwater said. The object of the survey is permanent relief following CWA and FERA work. The survey is being made to show the correlation of social welfare activities in local communities and in the state as a whole; to discover the most effective correlation between county, state and local government units; and to uncover methods in local communities and in the state as a whole.

A joke from Lila An atheist was wandering through a forest and suddenly saw a bear. As the bear showed his teeth and raised his paws threateningly, the atheist thought, “Boy, I don’t know if there’s a God, but I sure hope this bear finds religion!” Everything went quiet for a moment. Then the bear put his paws together, lowered his head, and said: “Thank you, Lord, for this food I am about to eat. I am truly thankful. Amen.”
