ing the ceremony. “I have a lot of friends who didn’t make it back. It’s my way of honoring their service to our country.” Steamboat Resident Marti Hamilton shared a similar sentiment, having grown up in a military family. “My husband is a vet; my father and brother are vets,” said Hamilton, whose husband, Kirk, served for the Army Airborne Division in Vietnam.

“It seems right. I was just raised to respect people in the military and what they do. It seems an appropriate way to honor them.” The event began with the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” by 11-year-old Andrea Clark, who attends Christian Heritage School.

harles Christian Graham virtually is forgotten here. However, he always is memorialized one weekend near the end of May when they place a small American flag in front of his headstone. There was a time, more than 90 years ago, when he was a prominent citizen of Steamboat Springs. Born in 1842, he had been a colonel in the Union Army during the Civil War. Near the turn of the century, he was Steamboat’s state senator from the Populist Party.

We can infer from his political affiliation that Graham stood for the interests of farmers and laborers. He may have supported free coinage of gold and silver, public ownership of railroads and a graduated federal income tax. I would have liked to have asked him about those things myself. But he died in California in 1914 and was only brought back to Steamboat for burial. He’s over in the old section

You could not have known from driving by on the highway today, but there were a startling number of flags in front of grave stones in the little cemetery on the hill — 256 in all. All of them signified the resting places of military veterans. Most of the veterans on the hill, like Graham, survived their combat experiences. But there are five graves of men who died for their country, three from the Korean War and two from Vietnam. It is sobering to note that World War I and World War II claimed the lives of 54 Routt County soldiers, and See Ross, page 12

Hayden seeks public feedback Commission members want to hear from residents about charter HAYDEN

Hayden residents have a chance to speak up about the town’s future at a hearing Wednesday. Hayden’s Home Rule Charter Commission has scheduled a public hearing about the draft of the Home Rule Charter. The document is far from finalized, officials said, and they encouraged residents to voice any concerns Wednesday. One possible snag is that the draft includes a change from a publicly elected mayor to a council president elected from within the Town Council. Three people have raised issues with Commission Vice Chairman Bill Irvine, he said. “I’ve changed my mind because of talking to the people,” Irvine said. “And the Home Rule Charter to me is very important, and I believe that if, in fact, we can have a negative response having a president on the board and not a mayor, I certainly am going for the mayor.” The position of mayor largely is ceremonial, Town Manager Russ Martin said. But if people want to keep an elected mayor, they should come to the meeting and make that known. “There’s so many more important things in that Home Rule Charter that I think a majority of people will appreciate and will want,” Martin said. “To have thrown the proverbial baby out with the bath water, well, let’s talk about the baby so we don’t do that. If that’s the thing that’s going to make you vote

yea or nay on this thing, show up on the 27th; voice your opinion. … You can make a change in it. This is not anywhere close to being done.” Martin noted that the Hayden School Board chooses its president from its ranks. The Steamboat Springs City Council does the same. Richard “Festus” Hagins, a town trustee and Charter Commission member, said he was flexible on the issue. As a trustee, he sees a benefit to council members’ choosing a president. “I feel that the board could take a position where they could choose someone who had experience or experience in running meetings and get things running smoothly,” Hagins said. “Because if you have someone who doesn’t know how to run a meeting well, it could run on for hours.” Martin noted that a Home Rule Charter would be about far more than the structure of a council. It would allow the town of Hayden to expand its tax base — “do surgery” on its tax policy. The town currently can only make changes to its overall sales tax. A Home Rule Charter would allow it to expand on that, possibly taxing car rentals or Yampa Valley Regional Airport passengers. That could lessen the burden on Hayden residents, Martin said. “We’re not taking advantage of possibilities at the airport like other cities have,” Hagins said. All taxing decisions still See Hayden, page 12

Blues-laden soul, punk and early rock ’n’ roll were among the styles covered in Ghost Ranch Saloon’s opening weekend, with sets from The Informants, Tony Furtado, Agent Orange, the Amputators and Missed the Boat. On Friday, the new music venue — which holds just less than 400 people and has national and regional acts on its schedule through the end of August — introduced itself to Steamboat Springs with a set from Denver-based party band The Informants. Opening the night with “Back at the Chicken Shack,” the act proved it’s hard to go wrong starting the night with a Jimmy Smith tune. From the outset The Informants had an all-customers-will-be-served energy that carried the band, and a packed house at Ghost Ranch, through several sets of classic rock, soul and dance music. Informants frontwoman Kerry Pastine led the group with swaggering style, belting through every song. With Jonny Love on baritone sax and Kenny Plum on tenor through much of the set, The Informants charged through classic songs with one of the more powerful horn sections around. On Sunday, Steamboat Springs rock band the Amputators took the stage as the opening act for first wave West Coast punk headliner Agent Orange, and ripped through a set of original songs for a crowd that seemed as excited to see the hometown act as it was the main show. In the two years or so the band has been together, the Amputators have honed a

Steamboat Springs police and Colorado State Patrol officers arrested 12 people on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs this weekend. The 12 were arrested Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The Routt County Sheriff’s Office arrested one person on suspicion of driving under the influence. Police and state patrol officials held a checkpoint Saturday night and Sunday morning at U.S. Highway 40 and Hilltop Parkway, police Sgt. Rich Brown said. They also

increased patrols around town. The officers set up a checkpoint on westbound U.S. 40 from about 10:30 p.m. Saturday to midnight. They spoke with 155 drivers, Brown said. “We had one arrest for a driver who was suspected of driving under the influence of drugs, and we asked six other people to perform voluntary roadside maneuvers, which they did,” he said. “And based on their performances, we didn’t believe they were impaired, so those people were released with warnings.” After midnight, they moved See Checkpoint, page 6

Barely a few sounds could be heard over a gathering of more than 200 people at Craig Cemetery on Monday morning. Only the flat caws of crows, soft wails from a baby and piercing squeaks from a large American flag being raised to half-mast were cast over the crowd. There was a rolling, melancholy wind that made the scene cold but not biting. Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265, American Legion Post 62 and Sons of the American Legion stood at attention. When a recording of the “Star Spangled Banner” played over loud speakers, the entire assembly of people either held their hats or their hands over their hearts and recited the Pledge of Allegiance in unison.

Family members visited him Monday afternoon, Mooney said, and reported that Jon Roberts was talking with them and no longer using a ventilator. “A lot happened in one day, and they are just thrilled,” Mooney said about the Roberts family. “They are so excited… (injuries) may not be as extensive as they were fearing.” Mooney said LeAnn Roberts did not provide any additional details about the circumstances of the accident. Jon Roberts began serving as Steamboat’s top administrator in February, after serving in the same position for the city of Victorville, Calif. He previously told the Steamboat Pilot & Today and At Home magazine

about his active lifestyle and passion for activities, including hiking, scuba diving and skydiving. Deputy City Manager Wendy DuBord said Monday that she already is assuming city manager roles in Roberts’ absence and is prepared to do so until his return. “I’m it. I’m always it when he’s out of town,” DuBord said. “Our concern right now is for Jon and his family. …As far as city business is concerned, we’re taken care of.” Mooney said the Roberts family appreciates the support it has received from the Steamboat Springs community. “They appreciate all people’s thoughts and prayers, and that our community is thinking about him,” she said.

COMMENTARY

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

State of paralysis Paul Krugman

THE NEW YORK TIMES

California, it long has been claimed, is where the future happens first. But is that still true? If it is, God help America. The recession has hit the Golden State hard. The housing bubble was bigger there than almost anywhere else, and the bust has been bigger too. California’s unemployment rate, at 11 percent, is the fifth-highest in the nation. And the state’s revenues have sufKrugman fered accordingly. What’s really alarming about California, however, is the political system’s inability to rise to the occasion. Despite the economic slump, despite irresponsible policies that have doubled the state’s debt burden since Arnold

Schwarzenegger became governor, California has immense human and financial resources. It should not be in fiscal crisis; it should not be on the verge of cutting essential public services and denying health coverage to almost a million children. But it is — and you have to wonder if California’s political paralysis foreshadows the future of the nation as a whole. The seeds of California’s current crisis were planted more than 30 years ago, when voters overwhelmingly passed Proposition 13, a ballot measure that placed the state’s budget in a straitjacket. Property tax rates were capped, and homeowners were shielded from increases in their tax assessments even as the value of their homes increased. The result was a tax system that is inequitable and unstable. It’s inequitable because older homeowners often pay far less property tax than their younger neighbors. It’s unstable because limits on property taxation have forced California

to rely more heavily than other states on income taxes, which fall steeply during recessions. Even more important, however, Proposition 13 made it extremely hard to raise taxes, even in emergencies: No state tax rate may be increased without a two-thirds majority in both houses of the state Legislature. And this provision has interacted disastrously with state political trends. For California, where the Republicans began their transformation from the party of Eisenhower to the party of Reagan, also is the place where they began their next transformation, into the party of Rush Limbaugh. As the political tide has turned against California Republicans, the party’s remaining members have become ever more extreme, ever less interested in the actual business of governing. And while the party’s growing extremSee Krugman, page 9

TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

Wouldn’t it be nice if things were simple instead of complicated; if hailing our Founding Fathers and the documents they wrote were sufficient to persuade people who do not share their views about life, liberty and religious tolerance to lay down their arms and worship at the altar of our Constitution in the temple of the National Archives? Alas, life is not simple. Thomas Those founders spoke to Americans who would embrace their ideals, not terrorists who would destroy them. And isn’t it peculiar that President Obama, who is about to nominate his first justice to the Supreme Court, invokes an inerrant view of the Constitution when it comes

MALLARD FILLMORE

to “torture,” but takes a less than textual view of that grand document when it comes to a social and political agenda he wishes to advance? The president’s address Thursday, while reflecting his usual eloquence, also was full of contradictions. He appeals to the Constitution, but during the campaign, he said it is flawed and so must be interpreted by judges. In his speech, Mr. Obama suggested that by not resorting to enhanced interrogation techniques, America is strengthened and kept safe. Perhaps he might explain why such an approach did not keep us safe on 9/11 or protect us from previous terrorist attacks before Gitmo. The president said enemies have surrendered to American troops in battle because they knew they would be treated well as prisoners. How about they feared being killed? In perhaps the weakest argument of his speech, the president said about

the Bush administration’s reaction to 9/11, “Unfortunately, faced with an uncertain threat, our government made a series of hasty decisions ... based on fear rather than foresight.” What would he have done after the murder of 3,000 Americans? He didn’t say and he can’t say, because in order to have proper foresight, you have to have the correct hindsight, and hindsight extends beyond the Bush administration back to the presidency of Bill Clinton, who dithered when he could have taken out Osama bin Laden, thus setting up the disaster on 9/11. The president criticized the “politicization of these issues,” but he had no problem doing precisely that during the campaign. So which is it? Politics is OK when you’re trying to beat the other side but not OK when the other side tries to beat you? See Thomas, page 9 Bruce Tinsley

California’s problems plague nation, too

Fear is good if it keeps the person on edge Thomas continued from 8 The president rejects fear, but fear is good if it keeps you on edge, which we clearly weren’t, leading up to 9/11. Rational fear helps defend us from danger. It’s why most of us don’t handle poisonous snakes or drive 100 miles per hour or fly in severe weather. Our fear of terrorism is not irrational. Terrorism is a clear and present danger, as the arrest of the alleged synagogue bomb plotters in New York attests. President Obama wants to put at least some of the Guantanamo detainees in maximum-security prisons in the U.S. Assuming an ACLU lawyer doesn’t win their release, these suspects might convert others

in prison to their cause in order to recruit them for jihad should they be let out. Some of those New York terrorist suspects were converted to Islam and radicalized while in prison. A more mature and sobering vision was offered by former Vice President Dick Cheney who has emerged as the Republican Party’s missing backbone. In a well-crafted and powerful rebuke to President Obama’s call for treating terrorists as criminals rather than enemy combatants, Cheney said, “Throughout the ’90s, America had responded to these (terrorist) attacks, if at all, on an ad hoc basis ... with everything handled after the fact — crime scene, arrests, indictments, con-

victions, prison sentences, case closed. ... 9/11 made necessary a shift of policy, aimed at a clear strategic threat — what the Congress called ‘an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.’ From that moment forward, instead of merely preparing to round up the suspects and count up the victims after the next attack, we were determined to prevent attacks in the first place.” It worked. History will show this approach protected our “values” against those who would destroy them. If there is another attack, President Obama won’t be able to blame it on the shortsightedness of the Bush-Cheney administration.

House Nancy Pelosi to Pussy Galore. And that party still has 40 senators. So will America follow California into ungovernability? Well, California has some special weaknesses that aren’t shared by the federal government. In particular, tax increases at the federal level don’t require a two-thirds majority, and can in some cases bypass the filibuster. So acting responsibly should be easier in Washington than in Sacramento. But the California precedent still has me rattled. Who would have thought that America’s largest state, a state whose economy is larger than that of all but a few nations, could so easily become a banana republic? On the other hand, the problems that plague California politics apply at the national level, too.

ism condemns it to seemingly permanent minority status — Schwarzenegger was and is sui generis — the Republican rump retains enough seats in the Legislature to block any responsible action in the face of the fiscal crisis. Will the same thing happen to the nation as a whole? Last week, Bill Gross, of Pimco, the giant bond fund, warned that the U.S. government may lose its AAA debt rating in a few years, thanks to the trillions it’s spending to rescue the economy and the banks. Is that a real possibility? Well, in a rational world Gross’ warning would make no sense. America’s projected deficits may sound large, yet it would take only a modest tax increase to cover the expected rise in interest payments — and right now American taxes are

well below those in most other wealthy countries. The fiscal consequences of the current crisis, in other words, should be manageable. But that presumes that we’ll be able, as a political matter, to act responsibly. The example of California shows that this is by no means guaranteed. And the political problems that have plagued California for years now are increasingly apparent at a national level. To be blunt: Recent events suggest that the Republican Party has been driven mad by lack of power. The few remaining moderates have been defeated, have fled, or are being driven out. What’s left is a party whose national committee has just passed a resolution solemnly declaring that Democrats are “dedicated to restructuring American society along socialist ideals,” and released a video comparing Speaker of the

most of them never came home. Many are buried in Europe. Jim Stanko, who serves on the cemetery board, knows some of the stories. Strolling through the cemetery on a May afternoon that resonated with the promise of new life, he pointed some of them out. Over there is the grave of a soldier who died in service but never made it onto the battlefield. “Here’s Steamboat Springs’ first pilot,” Stanko said, pausing by a marker decorated with a four-bladed propeller and a pair of angelic wings. It marks the grave of James E. Noyce, born 1898, died 1918. “Jimmy Noyce went into the Army Air Corps,” Stanko said. “He was learning to fly in Texas, and he crashed and killed himself.” That was a long time ago. John Rolfe Burroughs is recalled primarily as the author of books about Routt County, including “Where the Old West Stayed Young” and “I never Look Back,” the biography of

Buddy Werner. Standing in front of his grave, Stanko recalls that Burroughs, who died in 1987, got his start as a writer while he was a prisoner of war in the Pacific during World War II. “He kept his diary on toilet paper,” Stanko said. Willard B. Marshall Sr. was another World War II veteran who survived captivity as a POW, Stanko said. Marshall was a crew member on a B17 bomber shot down over Europe. He died Dec. 28, 1979. There was a flag planted in front of his headstone during the weekend. Leonard M. Officer and Frank Finch are side by side in the cemetery beneath identical military headstones. The letters “PH” carved into the stone signify that they were killed in action. Officer and Finch were killed in Korea. Ben Junior Ehle is another veteran of the Korean War who didn’t make it home alive. All three men were killed in their 20s. John Vialpondo died on Pearl Harbor Day, but in a

different war. He was a private in Company C of the 47th Infantry, Ninth Infantry Division when he was killed in Vietnam on Dec. 7, 1968. He was just 19. David Edward Fogg, a 1963 graduate of Soroco High School was a lance corporal in the Marines when he was killed in Vietnam on July 5, 1969. There is a photograph of the lance corporal on his grave. Encased in plastic, 24 years of snow and sun have not faded his image. The newest grave in the cemetery is that of Doug Buchanan who died this spring, Stanko said. He won a Silver Star for bravery in Vietnam. There was a flag on the grave of former City Councilman Don Brookshire this weekend and one on the grave of the great wrestling coach Carl Ramunno. Skiing legends Buddy Werner and Gordy Wren were remembered for their military service. In fact, everywhere one looked, there were small flags, each one symbolizing a story that deserves to be told.

For a few moments, the announcers at Monday’s Paddling Life Pro Invitational pretended they wouldn’t reveal the winner of the women’s portion of the competition. The ruse didn’t last long. “Come on,” the loudspeaker blared. “We won’t tell you, but just do the math.” The numbers made things pretty simple. Again. It already had been revealed that Australian Tanya Faux won the morning’s Fish Creek race and the afternoon’s freestyle competition in Charlie’s Hole. It added up to the fourth overall victory for Faux in the fourthannual event. “Maybe when I find a gray hair, I’ll start watching,” she said, considering when she might let someone else win the event. “But I haven’t got any yet.” Until then, Faux said fans and competitors can expect

her to remain the queen of Steamboat’s premier kayaking competition. Nick Troutman, meanwhile, got his own streak started by winning the men’s event. The 20-year-old Canadian tied for last year’s championship, but he managed to claim it outright this year thanks to a championship in the freestyle portion of the two-stage competition. “This was different than previous years,” Faux said. “The water is really high, and it made for quite a few new challenges.” This year’s event coincided seemingly perfectly with the high-water mark of the Yampa, and that defined the day’s competition. The morning’s race down Fish Creek bore little resemblance to last year’s as the 19boater field tore down a fully charged creek. Boulders have been the main obstacles in years past, and bottoming out was a See Kayak, page 19

The Denver Nuggets evened the Western Conference finals Monday night, beating the Los Angeles Lakers, 120-101, in Game 4 despite a hobbled Carmelo Anthony. Chauncey Billups and J.R. Smith scored 24 points, and Kenyon Martin posted a doubledouble as the Nuggets posted their eighth blowout of the postseason but first against Los Angeles after three games that came down to the final seconds. The Nuggets didn’t need to worry about a botched inbounds pass in the closing seconds like the ones that cost them wins in Games 1 and 3, although Kobe Bryant had another monster fourth quarter in a furious attempt to put a stranglehold on the series that shifts to Los Angeles for Game 5 on Wednesday night. Bryant, who is averaging 37 points in the series, scored 34, including 14 in the fourth quarter. He put a scare into the Nuggets and their fans until Smith hit back-to-back dagger 3-pointers for a 113-96 cushion. Anthony finished with a hardfought 15 points, and Martin had 13 points and 15 boards. The game featured four technical fouls and 84 free throws, 49 by Denver. ’Melo’s shooting slump continued as he went 3-for-16 and missed his first 10 shots. Making matters worse, he turned his right ankle in the first half. At the break, he needed fluids and had his ankle retaped, then returned with a dogged determination to help the Nuggets however he could to pull even in the series.

His son, Jamey, meanwhile didn’t even start play in the finals of a Denver tournament similarly stricken until 7:30 p.m. “It was another testament to great kids, great parents and our facility,” Swiggart said.

was telling the other schools that had offered scholarships that he wouldn’t be attending their school. He said he spent the past couple of days calling coaches and telling them about his decision. “I just called up other coaches and told them I wasn’t going to their school,” Hinder said. “It was the hardest part. You build a relationship with them and then you have to tell them.” Hinder said he’s now focused on finishing high school and working out with high school teammates throughout the summer. He said he’ll take one official visit to Cal later this year but emphasized his recruiting is officially done. “Cal is always a top-25 school,” Hinder said. “You have a chance to win a national championship while getting a great degree. Plus you get to play (University of Southern California) … It’s 100 percent. I’m definitely going to Cal. I’m done. I’m going to Cal.”

commitment was his ties to the Cal program. His grandfather, Jim Hanifan, played and coached at Cal before entering the program’s Hall of Fame. Hinder — listed as the second-ranked quarterback and No. 84 prospect overall by www. rivals.com — also said Cal coach Jeff Tedford played a big role in him committing. Before his junior season, Tedford watched Hinder throw and became the first coach to offer him a scholarship. Tedford has an extensive résumé with quarterbacks, including making five of his pupils into first-round NFL draft picks. “It’s the way he puts things,” Hinder said. “I sat in a meeting with him and it’s how he teaches his quarterbacks such a complicated offense.

regular occurrence. Not Monday. “It was way more challenging,” event organizer Eugene Buchanan said. “It is the realdeal whitewater up there now. When you get that much water, it’s like a real Class 5 river.” Andrew Holcombe, who tied with Troutman to claim last year’s championship, won the men’s Fish Creek race, finishing in 2:46.41. Holcombe’s creek speed helped him to a second-place overall finish. Faux won the women’s side of the race, finishing the bubbly whitewater run in 2 minutes, 57.16 seconds. “It was harder to go fast but in a different way,” said Faux, who won the women’s race last year, as well. “Last year, it was hard because you had to stay off rocks. This year, it was hard because you didn’t want to punch through too many holes and end up with too much water on your chest.” High water also defined the afternoon freestyle competition at Charlie’s Hole. Faux again dominated the women’s competition, topping Emily Jackson and Devon Barker in the finals. Troutman bested Stephen Wright, Corey Volt, Dave Fusilli and Kyle Hull in the finals. The last rides were all whirling, twirling trick-filled trips in the rushing water of the downtown Steamboat feature. “Growing up on the Ottawa up in Canada, we have waves similar to this, so I grew up doing a lot of the moves I was doing today,” Troutman said. He wrapped up the overall championship only after out-dueling Wright. Both had

Many veterans share stories about event Memorial continued from 1

ing of “America the Beautiful,” by Paul Draper and Maureen Hogue, who also played guitar. The flag then was lowered to half-mast, to honor the fallen. Organizers of the event provided background Monday about Memorial Day’s origin. President Lyndon Johnson in 1966 named Waterloo, N.Y., the place where Civil War veterans first were honored in 1866, and the location became the holiday’s official home. During that time, the holiday was called Decoration Day because of the

flags, flowers and mementos placed on veterans’ graves and wasn’t changed to Memorial Day until 1967, event organizers said. This year’s local ceremony also featured a new tactic to honor some of the 265 veterans buried at Steamboat Springs Cemetery. “We try to do something different every year,” said U.S. Army veteran and event organizer Jim Stanko. “We just thought it was important to recognize some people who came to Steamboat and really made a contribution and really needed to be recognized.” Bob Printy, commander of American Legion Post No. 44, read off the names of veterans from six past wars who returned to Steamboat and had significant impacts on the community. They included: ■ Charles C. Graham, a veteran of the Civil War, who returned to Steamboat and served as a member of the Populist party in the Colorado Senate. ■ Claude A. Luekens, a veteran of World War I, who owned a Chrysler-Plymouth dealership in Steamboat, one of the first in the state, and also was a Routt County commissioner for 21 years and the city’s mayor for 19. He also was instrumental in the development of the Old Town Hot Springs and the paving of Lincoln Avenue. ■ Don Brookshire, a veteran of World War II, who worked for the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. for 20 years, served three terms on the city council and always helped with local Fourth of July festivities. ■ Carl Ramunno, a veteran of the Korean War, who taught industrial arts and woodshop, and coached a legendary wrestling program at Steamboat Springs High School. ■ James Chew, a veteran of the Vietnam War, who returned to join the Steamboat Springs

Police Department. Two years later, and a month after getting married, he was shot and killed by an escaped convict during a traffic stop. Chew still is the only Steamboat officer killed in the line of duty. ■ Greg Kyprios, a veteran of Desert Storm, who opened a high-tech aerospace consulting firm in Steamboat before his Oct. 2005 death when his plane crashed on Rabbit Ears Pass. “We were trying to show what they picked up in their military careers carries over to making a better community,” Stanko said. “They had a real impact.” The event concluded with the placing of a wreath on the cemetery’s memorial, a firing party discharging three shots in unison and a bugler’s rendition of “Taps.” Many of the veterans who attended shared stories of how the event was significant to them. Wayne Ehle, who fought in the Army during Battle of the Bulge in World War II, and Doug Werner, an Army veteran of Vietnam, the ceremony held special significance because members of their families, both veterans and non-veterans, were buried at Steamboat Springs Cemetery. For Tony Weiss, commander of the VFW Post No. 4264 and an Army veteran of Desert Storm, it was a lifelong tradition to honor those who had made the “supreme sacrifice,” by placing flags on graves with his family since he was a child. But for some, honoring those who gave their lives to defend American freedoms isn’t confined to a single ceremony. “Every day is Memorial Day for us,” said Ty Upson, who served two tours with the U.S. Marines during the Iraq war. “This is just the one that’s recognized.” — To reach Jack Weinstein, call 871-4203, or e-mail jweinstein@steamboatpilot.com
