Pale is the new tan. As skin cancer rates continue to increase, that’s the message three Steamboat Springs residents would like everyone to embrace. Andy Caress has metastatic melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer. He doesn’t like to remember all the time he spent in the sun playing tennis and competing in triathlons. Dermatologist Sandy Eivins, M.D., is alarmed by the skin cancer incidence and mortality rate in Northwest Colorado, which she says is one of the highest in the nation. Oncology nurse Jan Fritz, R.N., director of Yampa Valley Medical Center’s Cancer Services, sees more cases of melanoma showing up in younger people. At age 23, Caress thought he was too young to worry about skin cancer. When a small, rubbery, pink growth appeared on the back of his neck last fall, he was annoyed but not anxious. “It was just bothering me,” he said. “So I cut it off with a nail clipper, which was a big mistake. Eventually it stopped bleeding and healed, but about a month later, it reappeared and grew back bigger. It looked like a pencil eraser when I went to see Dr. Eivins.”

Steamboat Springs tennis pro Andy Caress, 23, was diagnosed with skin cancer in November 2008. He hopes his ordeal will help convince others about the dangers of the sun, even for young children and teens.

The dermatologist diagnosed the growth as melanoma, and Caress’s medical odyssey began. He has since endured six surgeries and two rounds of intensive chemotherapy. Currently receiv-

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Whether they were interested in firefighting as a career, or just plain interested, more than a dozen local residents participated in Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue’s first Citizens Fire Academy on Saturday. “There seems to be people interested in it as a career. There’s some people who are just interested in what (firefighters and paramedics) do,” Fire Rescue public education coordinator Deb Funston said. “It helps to open their eyes to all they do. … They’re just blown away by all the equipment.” The all-day academy included walkthroughs of an ambulance and other fire equipment, a car extrication demonstration, an aerial climb up the department’s 105-foot engine ladder and instruction on how to use fire extinguishers and fire hoses. There also were lessons in fire safety in the home and at work, CPR and basic first aid.

“Everybody knows they fight fire, but we’re here to find out what else they do,” said Steamboat resident Greg Dalsis, who said he is not interested in firefighting as a career but was curious about the department. “I guess the biggest eye-opening thing is how many things they do. … These guys can all do a lot of stuff.” The academy was the brainchild of firefighter and emergency medical technician Craig Malchow. Malchow said 16 people signed up. The department intends to establish the academy as an annual event. Among other things, Malchow said participants were amazed at how heavy and hot firefighting gear is. The department simulated its annual physical agility test for academy participants, but Malchow said he also hoped to stress the mental aspects of the job. “You’ve got to be physically fit,” Malchow said, “but also See Fire, page 6

With several strong vocalists in a six-man lineup, The Infamous Stringdusters are able to keep a relatively constant style without losing an audience’s interest. Not that losing the audience’s interest is a threat or even a possibility. The Nashvillebased, American-music-bred group proved that point with a standout set Friday at Ghost Ranch Saloon. Starting out with a newgrass base defined by players Sam Bush and Jerry Douglas, the Stringdusters look back in some places and forward in others. Everyone in the band plays his instrument with blistering speed; banjo player Chris Pandolfi and fiddle player Jeremy Garrett have staggering technical ability, with Andy Hall on dobro, Andy Falco on guitar and Jesse Cobb on mandolin, adding frantic but educated solos on nearly every song. Bassist Travis Book drives it all, occasionally adding lead vocals to his job of anchoring the drummer-less band.

joined the band for a few songs toward the end of its second set, lending his smoother, wizened country vocals to a couple of laid-back tunes. The slower tempo was an uncommon break in the Stringdusters’ performance, which kept a mostly finger-breaking pace for about two and a half hours. Grafting their diverse musical tastes onto a solid, skilled bluegrass background, The Infamous Stringdusters are able to update traditional American music, bringing it to new audiences with what looks to be a sustainable setup.

That means the Stringdusters can tackle just about any classic bluegrass tune, shredding all they want through chorus after chorus. But in newer recordings and occasionally in their live show, the Stringdusters are after more than six-man-band virtuosity. During a long jam session toward the end of their first set, the six musicians worked their way through a spacey, disparate jazz arrangement before culminating in an unstoppable instrumental groove. As with a few more of the group’s original tunes, the song had lyrics, but it’s hard to remember what they were. That’s because the band’s musical prowess overpowers anything it does lyrically — not a bad thing in most cases, especially when you’re working a crowded Ghost Ranch Saloon into a bluegrass-inspired frenzy.

GARDENING WITH

Deb Babcock What I particularly like about this insecticide is its fast-acting effectiveness (I had overnight results), as well as its relative safety. Bran baits are more effective at controlling grasshoppers than the bacterial insecticides mentioned above. The dry bran flakes are pretty much a grasshopperspecific killer while the liquid forms of grasshopper insecticide — acephate (Orthene®), carbaryl (Sevin®) and malathion — that are sprayed directly on your plants also

are effective but will harm bees, flies, butterflies and hummingbirds that drink plant nectar from sprayed plants. They also leave residue on edible plants that can be harmful to humans. It’s best to spray these insecticides at night or early in the morning when bees, flies and butterflies are less active. Always read and follow label instructions. Be on the lookout for hatching hoppers this spring so you get the jump on them before they get the jump on you. Deb Babcock is a Master Gardener through the Colorado State University Extension Routt County. No endorsement of products mentioned in this article is intended. Questions? Call 879-0825.

everal local gardeners have reported small grasshoppers already crawling through their yards this spring. Each year, it seems the Yampa Valley has infestations with not one but several varieties of grasshoppers, each with a different life cycle. Needless to say, it is a challenge for gardeners to control damage to their plants from these voracious pests. Because grasshoppers tend to infest an area for a three- to four-year cycle, chances are that different parts of the valley can expect to see repeated infestations that started in previous years, while other parts of the valley will notice a lessening of the pests. If we experience some dry, warm spring days that cause grasshopper eggs to hatch, followed by some cool, wet days that will kill off many of the hatchlings, the grasshopper problem might be lessened. But, of course, we cannot count on that. So, what can home gardeners do to lessen hopper damage to our prized plants? Keep an eye out for grasshoppers hatching. They will be crawling along the ground, not hopping. It’s easier and more efficient to try to control grasshoppers when they are young. At those early larval stages they are more concentrated and it’s possible to treat a smaller area and still get good control. A microbial insecticide known by trade names as Semaspore® or NoLo Bait® is only effective against these young grasshoppers. This product will take about two weeks to begin taking effect and must be purchased fresh and used right away. It has a shelf life of 90 days. The young grasshoppers eat this bait and spread disease to other grasshoppers. Although individuals have had success with these products, controlled research studies have shown only a 30 to 40 percent effectiveness at reducing grasshoppers. What’s good about this product is it works only on grasshoppers and some crickets, not birds, bees or butterflies. As grasshoppers mature and start heading toward your garden, insecticide treatments will have limited success since there is continual reinvasion by grasshoppers and the product wears off relatively quickly. A bran bait product called EcoBran was tested by many of us Master Gardeners several years ago with pretty good success. It targets immature and mature grasshoppers and contains the insecticide carbaryl integrated in bran flakes that are spread on the ground.

30,” she says. “The higher SPFs give a better buffer zone, but it’s important to reapply every two hours because it does wear off.” Another important preventive measure is to avoid tanning beds, which Eivins says carry the same danger as the sun. “In fact, tanning beds emit much higher doses of UVA — the tanning rays — than the sun does,” she said. “Both UVA and UVB rays cause melanoma.” Can the efforts of Caress, Eivins, Fritz and many other health advocates really convince people to shun the sun and tanning beds? Eivins hopes we will learn some lessons from “down under.” With the highest incidence of skin cancer on the planet, Australia launched an educational program to change the way its citizens view the sun and tanning salons. “A tan is not a sign of good health. A tan is a sign that the skin is getting UV radiation damage,” reads one message. Caress endorses this point. That is why, when he ran the Steamboat Marathon 10K on Sunday, he was slathered in sunscreen and wearing protective clothing. It was his first time in the sun since November 2008.

��������

Melanoma often appears as a dark, irregularly shaped and colored mole. But not all melanoma looks the same. “Some growths pop up quickly, and people think they’re pimples because they don’t look like moles,” Eivins said. “Melanoma can be underneath a toenail, showing up as a brown streak in the nail.” Fritz emphasizes that melanoma can appear anywhere on the body — even on the bottom of the feet and in the scalp. Any skin change should be reported to a physician immediately. “The most important part of recognizing melanoma is doing our own skin checks regularly,” Fritz advises. “Most people don’t know what skin cancer looks like, so just look for skin changes. And see a doctor for an annual professional skin check.” Preventing melanoma is, of course, preferable to detecting it in its early stages. The most effective strategy is to limit sun exposure and wear sunscreen and protective clothing when out in the sun. For a total sunblock, Eivins recommends micronized zinc oxide. The sun bounces off this substance. Her favorite chemical sunscreen is Mexoryl, which has the highest blocking factor for ultraviolet A and B (UVA and UVB) rays. “Wear sunscreen with a sunblock factor (SPF) of at least

COMMENTARY

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

Justices gone wild Ross Douthat

THE NEW YORK TIMES

Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation hearings won’t happen for more than a month, but it’s easy to predict how they will go. In a series of preening, long-winded questions, the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee will attempt to divide Sotomayor’s position on a variety of controversial topics — from affirmative action to abortion to presidential power. In a series of polite, evasive answers, the nominee will Douthat feign a studious neutrality on almost every issue that could come before her during what’s likely to be decades as one of the most powerful women in the world. Nobody will explicitly acknowledge the deeper stakes. Sotomayor will be joining a high court that’s gradually become a kind of extra legislative body — a nine-person

super-Senate graced with the power of the veto, where liberals and conservatives alike turn when they’re confounded in the Congress. Complaints about the Supreme Court’s power are almost as old as the Constitution, but they have more merit now than ever. According to calculations by the Harvard law professor Jed Shugerman, the Court has gone from overturning roughly one state law every two years in the pre-Civil War era, to roughly four a year in the later 1800s, to over 10 a year in the last half-century. So too with federal law: Before 1954, the Court had struck down just 77 federal statutes in a century-and-a-half of jurisprudence; in the 50-odd years since, it’s overturned more than 80. Under Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, the Court invalidated federal statutes at an unprecedented rate — and by the barest of majorities, in many cases. In one eightyear period, the University of Michigan’s Evan Caminker has noted, the Court

invalidated 16 congressional statutes by a 5-4 vote, something that had happened just 25 times in the previous two centuries. The public doesn’t seem to mind this increasing assertiveness: The Supreme Court regularly shows up in polls as the most respected branch of government. But settling so many vexing controversies with 5-4 votes — effectively making Anthony Kennedy the nation’s philosopher king — is an awfully poor way to run a republic. The right tends to blame the left for the Supreme Court’s expanded ambit, and not unjustly. The modern Court’s most enduringly controversial power grabs — with Roe v. Wade leading the way — were usually the work of liberal justices, and even the more modest liberal theories of jurisprudence tend to depict the justices as soldiers in the progressive cause, constrained primarily by what the political climate allows them to get away with. See Douthat, page 9

Rising above IQ Nicholas Kristof

THE NEW YORK TIMES

In the mosaic of America, three groups that have been unusually successful are Asian-Americans, Jews and West Indian blacks — and in that there may be some lessons for the rest of us. Asian-Americans are renowned — or notorious — for ruining grade curves in schools across the land, and as a result, they constitute about 20 percent of students at Harvard College. Kristof As for Jews, they have received about one-third of all Nobel Prizes in science received by Americans. One survey found that a quarter of Jewish adults in the United States have earned a graduate degree, compared with 6 percent of the population as a whole.

MALLARD FILLMORE

West Indian blacks, those like Colin Powell whose roots are in the Caribbean, are one-third more likely to graduate from college than AfricanAmericans as a whole, and their median household income is almost one-third higher. These three groups may help debunk the myth of success as a simple product of intrinsic intellect, for they represent three different races and histories. In the debate about nature and nurture, they suggest the importance of improved nurture — which, from a public policy perspective, means a focus on education. Their success also may offer some lessons for you, me, our children — and for the broader effort to chip away at poverty in this country. Richard Nisbett cites each of these groups in his superb recent book, “Intelligence and How to Get It.” Nisbett, a professor of psychology at the University of Michigan, argues that

what we think of as intelligence is quite malleable and owes little or nothing to genetics. “I think the evidence is very good that there is no genetic contribution to the black-white difference on IQ,” he said, adding that there also seems to be no genetic difference in intelligence between whites and Asians. As for Jews, some not-very-rigorous studies have found modestly above-average IQ for Ashkenazi Jews, though not for Sephardic Jews. Nisbett somewhat is skeptical, noting that these results emerge from samples that may not be representative. In any case, he says, the evidence is overwhelming that what is distinctive about these three groups is not innate advantage but rather a tendency to get the most out of the firepower they have. One large study followed a group See Kristof, page 9 Bruce Tinsley

Best reform would be term limits for justices posed a supermajority rule, for instance, requiring a 6-3 vote to overturn federal legislation. To get conservatives on board, the rule would have to be extended to state legislation as well. This isn’t as crazy as it sounds — versions of the supermajority idea have been batted around by left and right alike since Reconstruction, and merely proposing it might spur the Court toward greater consensus, and perhaps greater modesty as well. Absent such constraints, the best reform would be term limits for the justices, instead of lifetime tenure. Give them 12 years, rotated on a regular schedule, and then send them on their way. Such limits wouldn’t reduce the Supreme Court’s power directly, but it would help us see the Court for what it has become — a deeply political institution.

Chinese, Jews have big respect for scholarship Kristof continued from 8 of Chinese-Americans who initially did slightly worse on the verbal portion of IQ tests than other Americans and the same on math portions. But beginning in grade school, the Chinese outperformed their peers, apparently because they worked harder. The Chinese-Americans were only half as likely as other children to repeat a grade in school, and by high school, they were doing much better than European-Americans with the same IQ. As adults, 55 percent of the Chinese-American sample entered high-status occupations, compared with one-third of whites. To succeed in a profession or as managers, whites needed an average IQ of about 100, while Chinese-Americans needed an IQ of just 93. In short, Chinese-Americans managed to achieve more than

whites who on paper had the same intellect. A common thread among these three groups may be an emphasis on diligence or education, perhaps linked in part to an immigrant drive. Jews and Chinese have a particularly strong tradition of respect for scholarship, with Jews said to have achieved complete adult male literacy — the better to read the Talmud — some 1,700 years before any other group. The parallel force in China was Confucianism and its reverence for education. You still can sometimes see in rural China the remains of a monument to a villager who triumphed in the imperial exams. In contrast, if an American town has someone who earns a Ph.D., the impulse is not to build a monument but to pass a hat. Among West Indians, the crucial factors for success seem twofold: the classic diligence

and hard work associated with immigrants and intact families. The upshot is higher family incomes and fathers more involved in child-rearing. What’s the policy lesson from these three success stories? It’s that the most decisive weapons in the war on poverty aren’t transfer payments but education, education, education. For at-risk households, that starts with social workers making visits to encourage such basic practices as talking to children. One study found that a child of professionals (disproportionately white) has heard about 30 million words spoken by age 3; a black child raised on welfare has heard only 10 million words, leaving that child at a disadvantage in school. The next step is intensive early childhood programs, followed by improved elementary and high schools, and programs to defray college costs.

But in practice, the main divide between liberal and conservative judges tends to be about the responsibilities of the federal government, not judicial activism per se. During the last decade of the Rehnquist Court, for instance, the conservative Clarence Thomas and the archliberal John Paul Stevens were almost equally willing to vote to strike down legislation. It’s just that Thomas was much more likely to rule federal actions unconstitutional, while Stevens was more likely to vote to overturn state laws. So right-wingers, too, have grown accustomed to turning to the Court when their legislators let them down. On matters ranging from affirmative action to campaign finance reform to gun

control to property rights, Bushera conservatives petitioned the Supreme Court — sometimes successfully, sometimes not — to declare unconstitutional policies that could have been changed legislatively, had the Republican majority been able to muster the political capital to do it. In the current term, conservatives are asking the Court to revise away outdated provisions of Voting Rights Act — a reasonable proposal, but something a Republican-controlled Congress could have done in 2006, instead of voting 98-0 in the Senate and 390-33 in the House to reauthorize the act for another quarter-century. There are bipartisan ways that the Court could be reined in, and the legislative branch reinvigorated. Shugerman, Caminker and others have pro-

Of the roughly 1,600 people who participated in Vision 2030, 66 percent were between 30 and 60 years old, and 62 percent had lived in Routt County for more than 10 years, according to the report. A lack of participants in younger age brackets is attributed in the report to “the age shift in Routt County to an older demographic.” The report also tracked participant occupations: 28 percent were in professional, scientific, management, administration or service jobs; 14 percent were in educational, health or social services; 13 percent were retired or not employed; and 10 percent were in art, entertainment, recreation or accommodations. Vision 2030’s “desired outcomes” and “recommended actions” are divided by interest area: affordable housing, agriculture and open space, arts and culture, economy, education, government, heritage, planning, recreation, seniors, sustainability, transportation and youth. The city of Steamboat Springs and Routt County contributed $77,000 each to fund Vision 2030; additional funding came from area businesses and other municipalities, according to the report. Vision 2030 will give a formal presentation of its report at 5 p.m. June 22 at Centennial Hall, at a meeting of the Steamboat Springs City Council and the Routt County Board of Commissioners.

its findings to each area of the county, using keypad audience polling to validate the information. The initial survey asked residents to define what they most value. Community ranked No. 1 for all regions, with 43 percent of Steamboat respondents listing it as their top value. Environment placed second for residents of North Routt and Steamboat. Other top-three values included heritage, friendliness, recreation, small-town feel and education. Also included in the survey was a list of 21 aspects, which respondents ranked as most important, somewhat important or not important/threatened. More than 75 percent of respondents checked the “most important” option for clean environment, Yampa River, open space, scenic views, low crime rate and good education. Percentages were lower for the “most threatened” option, with more than 30 percent of respondents naming affordable housing, little traffic congestion, ranching and farming, open space and scenic views as our most threatened aspects.

planning and sustainability are organized alphabetically. Each category includes desired outcomes and recommended actions or “possible ways in which these outcomes can be achieved.” The recommendations are outlined and given vague timelines, but the report does not give specific financial or planning suggestions. “The reason we chose not to do that is things are going to change over the next 20 years,” said Marsha Daughenbaugh, a Vision 2030 co-chairwoman. “How things are funded now might not be the same as how things are funded 20 years down the road.” As the project moves forward, the 30-person Vision 2030 Citizens’ Committee will transition into a stewardship committee, Delaney said. That group will be responsible for holding what organizers hope are quarterly meetings, designing project report cards and moving forward on long-term projects, she said. “A lot of it is about people saying what they want to share for the future,” Delaney said. “And a lot of times when people can connect those visions, that’s when they can start to take action and make things happen.”

Simple practices can prevent foodborne illness Tamera Manzanares

Wellness Days speakers

SPECIAL TO THE PILOT & TODAY

A group of 10 older adults brought plenty of cooking experience to The Haven Community Center last week. Even so, questions during “food safety bingo” stumped at least a few of them. The game was part of Karen Massey’s presentation about preventing foodborne illness. Massey, who specializes in family and consumer issues at the Routt County Extension Service office, was the guest speaker during Hayden Wellness Days, a weekly event for adults ages 50 and older. A few surprising tidbits from the game included the fact that harmful bacteria can take weeks to manifest as illness; melons should be washed to prevent bacteria on the skin from spreading during cutting; and it’s not a good idea to eat food from dented cans (bacteria can enter through minuscule cracks). Although the game was all in good fun, food safety information is critical for adults ages 65 and older, who are more likely to get sick and develop serious complications from harmful bacteria that can be found in food. Other people at higher risk include pregnant women, young children and people with chronic illnesses and weakened immune systems. Participants in the food safety discussion recalled when most of their food came from their own backyards and other local farms and gardens. Nowadays, much of our food comes from outside our home communities, states and nations. These foods undergo various processes that open the door for more harmful bacteria entering the food supply.

����������������������

“We’re running into a lot of food safety problems,” Massey said. Many harmful bacteria or pathogens are present in animals and, during processing, can contaminate the meat and poultry we purchase. Other foods, such as produce and even ready-to-eat foods such as deli meat may become cross-contaminated with bacteria from meat juices or other contaminated products, or from food handlers with poor personal hygiene, according to information from the U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service. Harmful bacteria also can grow on foods kept at unsafe temperatures for too long. Foodborne illness can happen 20 minutes to six weeks after contaminated food is eaten, according to the FSIS. Symptoms can include stomach cramps, diarrhea, fever, headache and/or body aches. Anyone who suspects they have a foodborne illness should call their doctor as well as their local health department. The FSIS recommends individuals safely secure suspected sources of harmful bacteria and packaging, mark as “dangerous” and freeze. They also should note relevant details such as where the product was purchased, when it was consumed and when symptoms occurred. Eating doesn’t have to be risky business. Precautions in

the kitchen can prevent the growth and spread of pathogens in food. Food safety campaigns boil these practices down to four simple rules: Clean, Separate, Cook and Chill.

Keep hands clean Wash hands with warm water and soap before and after handling food (including pre-cooked food such as hot dogs) and after using the restroom, changing diapers and handling pets. Wash cutting boards, dishes, utensils and counters with hot water and soap between preparing food items. Kitchen sanitizers (1 tablespoon chlorine bleach to 1 gallon water) can be used for added protection. Replace excessively worn cutting boards that have deep grooves that are hard to clean. Replace sponges often. Wash cloth towels often in hot water and detergent or consider using paper towels. Rinse raw produce, including melons and other fruits with thick skin or peels.

Separate foods Separate raw meat, poultry and seafood from other foods in your grocery cart and during meal preparation. Consider using certain cutting boards specifically for

Chill your foods

raw meat, poultry and seafood. Wash cutting boards, dishes and utensils that come into contact with raw meat, poultry, seafood, eggs and unwashed produce. Always put cooked food on a clean plate.

Cook foods properly Use a clean food thermometer to measure the internal temperature of cooked foods to make sure they are cooked all the way through. Make sure to calibrate digital thermometers before using. Beef, veal and lamb roasts and steaks should be cooked to at least 145 F. Cook all poultry to at least 165 F. Ground beef should be cooked to at least 160 F (bacteria can spread throughout the meat during processing). Cook eggs until yolk and white are firm. Avoid recipes in which eggs remain raw or partially cooked. Fish should be opaque and flake easily with a fork. When cooking in a microwave oven, make sure there are no cold spots in food where bacteria can survive. The FDA recommends reheating pre-cooked foods such as hot dogs, deli-style meats and poultry products that are kept refrigerated. These foods can become recontaminated with bacteria after they have been processed and packaged.

Set refrigerator to 40 F or below and freezer to 0 F. Occasionally check temperature with an appliance thermometer. Refrigerate or freeze perishables, prepared food and leftovers as soon as possible. Hot foods will not harm refrigerators. Divide large amounts of leftovers, meat and poultry into shallow containers for quick cooling in the refrigerator. Food also can be chilled in ice or a cold water bath before going in the refrigerator. Foods (including cut or peeled produce) left in the “danger zone” — between 40 F and 140 F — for more than two hours should be discarded, regardless of how they look or smell. Do not thaw food at room temperature; think ahead and thaw in the refrigerator or immerse in cold water (cook immediately after thawing). Food can be thawed in the microwave if cooked right away. Don’t pack a refrigerator too full; cold air must circulate to keep food safe. Sources: “To Your Health! Food Safety for Seniors,” at www. foodsafety.gov; Karen Massey, Routt County Extension Office.

Residents ready to be heard THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BATTLEMENT MESA

Residents of Battlement Mesa worried about pending oil and gas drilling are getting assurances from state officials that their concerns will be heard. Gov. Bill Ritter has asked oil and gas regulators to meet with residents within the month to talk about the plans that could lead to the drilling of 200 new oil and gas wells in their area. Some state officials met with about 20 Battlement Mesa residents Saturday to talk about their worries. Heidi Van Huysen, legislative program manager for the state Department of Natural Resources, told residents

that Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission staff will meet first with Denver-based Antero Resources about details of the company’s drilling plans. The company recently announced intentions to drill from 10 well pads within the 3,000-acre development, an unincorporated community of 5,500 people. “I promise that we’ll be back in a month with people who know way more about this particular project than I do,” Van Huysen said. State Rep. Kathleen Curry, D-Gunnison, said she’s received about 40 e-mails from residents concerned about Anteros plans, including how close to homes drilling might occur. The state’s new oil and gas

rules allow for nearby landowners to comment on drilling permit applications. “I think there’s more opportunity now with the rules than ever to be involved,” said Tresi Houpt, a Garfield County commissioner who also serves on the state oil and gas commission. Houpt told residents the county expects to have some say about the drilling through its land-use-review process, and she encouraged them to provide comment during that process. She said the county made energy development a special use rather than a use-by-right under the original development approval for Battlement Mesa, meaning it can’t proceed without a permit after county review.

The agency reports about 36,000 horses wild on the range, which Ackley said is about 10,000 horses too many.

EAGLE

Wild horses are feeling the effects of recession, as federal authorities find fewer horse owners willing to take on extra animals. At a wild horse auction run by the Bureau of Land Management in Eagle on Saturday, only 10 of 39 horses were adopted. Most went for the minimum bid of $125. The trend is a national one. In 2002, more than 7,700 wild horses were adopted nationwide. Last year, the number was 3,700. “In today’s economy, horses are more of a luxury than a hobby,” said Fran Ackley, leader of the agency’s wild horse and burro program in Colorado. “Right now, we’re just feeding a lot of these horses. Nothing else to do with them.” About half the wild horses were gathered from the Sand Wash Basin in northwestern Colorado and the Book Cliffs area north of Grand Junction.

The backlog of unadopted horses is leaving the government with a higher tab to care of them. Last year, the BLM spent $27 million on housing and caring for unwanted wild horses and burros. Officials say the tab could increase to $85 million by 2012 if private adoptions don’t pick up. “We’ve got the money for

Gov. Bill Ritter is taking a 62-mile bike ride to help promote a new cycling safety law. The governor is riding in Sunday’s Elephant Rock Ride in Castle Rock. After the ride, the governor is talking with reporters to promote a new bicycle safety law. The new law Ritter clarifies traffic rules for bicyclists. It allows drivers to cross the center line when safe to avoid bicyclists, and it allows bikers to pass one another or ride side-by-side if they are not impeding traffic. The law also makes it a misdemeanor for a vehicle driver to throw objects at a cyclist. The new law takes effect in August.

Cool, wet spring boosts mountain wildflowers

There an upside to Colorado’s soggy spring. Wildlife observers say the region’s healthy rainfall has caused a gorgeous explosion of wildflowers along the Rocky Mountains. Naturalist Stephen Jones, of Boulder County, says area wildflowers are loving the cool, wet spring. His area saw 9 inches of rain in April and May, with temperatures never above 90 degrees. Last year, only 5.3 inches of rain fell in the same period with two days in the 90s. Jones predicts strong wildflower blooms throughout June, saying only about one year in 20 are as good for the flowers. But naturalists say flowerwatchers shouldn’t delay, because even a short stretch of hot weather and high winds can turn bucolic mountain meadows brown and dry.

5 tornadoes in Colorado, 1 damages mall in Aurora AURORA

At least five tornadoes touched down in Colorado on Sunday, with one overturning benches and a car outside a mall in this Denver suburb. There were no immediate reports of serious injuries. Firefighters reported moderate damage and gas leaks at the Southlands Mall, which was forced to close. The National Weather Service said the tornado that damaged the mall touched down south of Buckley Air Force Base just before 2 p.m. and may have been on the ground for about 30 minutes, taking an 8- to 10-mile path across southeast Aurora. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning units on the mall roof were damaged. Mall spokeswoman Joyce RochaBrown said damage was being assessed, and no decision had been made on when the building might reopen. Julie Patterson, 36, could see the tornado from the back deck of her house in Aurora. “You could see the debris flying in the funnel cloud,” she said. The other tornadoes were reported 6 miles east of Lafayette; one south of Bennett; one south of Deer Trail; and one north of Byers, the National Weather Service said. Many spots in the Denver area also were pelted with hail as big as baseballs. The Weather Service received reports of hail as big as 3 inches in Arapahoe County, meteorologist Robert Koopmeiners said. Xcel Energy said the storm blew down power lines, leaving about 3,000 customers in parts of Aurora and Centennial without power for about an hour and 40 minutes before service was restored.

Arvada church service interrupted by gun scare ARVADA

An Arvada church was interrupted during Sunday services by a man outside with a rifle — but the man was after a pesky bird, not parishioners. More than a half-dozen Arvada and Jefferson County officers arrived at Risen Christ Lutheran Church after a motorist driving by the church reported seeing a man outside with a rifle. A K-9 unit also was dispatched to the church. It turned out the man works at the church and was trying to scare away a bird. He wasn’t named or charged with a crime. He didn’t fire the air rifle.

Authorities say a lightning strike killed a man whose body was found during the weekend in Evans. Twenty-one-year-old Efrain Trevizo-Molina was found in the field Saturday morning. An autopsy revealed he was killed by lightning the night before. Trevizo-Molina was last seen walking through the field near an apartment complex at about 8:45 p.m. during a storm. A dogwalker discovered him about 12 hours later lying face-down in the field.

Man charged with murder of abortion doctor warns of violence

Senator says president ’got nerve’

Grassley criticizes Obama for pushing lawmakers about health care Erica Werner

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley says that President Barack Obama “got nerve” to go sightseeing in Paris while telling lawmakers it’s time to deliver on a health care overhaul. Grassley, the top Republican on the Finance Committee, is key to any bipartisan health care deal. Using Twitter — the Internet-based social connection service allows users to send mass text messages called “tweets” — the Iowa Republican issued two angry “tweets” Sunday morning

as the president wrapped up an overseas tour. For months, Obama had left the details of health care legislation to Congress, then inserted himself firmly into the debate in recent days, including using his weekly radio address Saturday to declare “it’s time to deliver” on health reform. Grassley’s first tweet: “Pres Obama you got nerve while u sightseeing in Paris to tell us ‘time to deliver’ on health care. We still on skedul/even workinWKEND.” A short time later: “Pres Obama while u sightseeing in Paris u said ‘time to delivr on

healthcare’ When you are a ‘hammer’ u think evrything is NAIL I’m no NAIL.” A Grassley spokeswoman verified that the senator was the author of the messages.

The man charged with murdering a high-profile abortion doctor claimed from his jail cell Sunday that similar violence was planned across the nation for as long as the procedure remained legal, a threat that comes days after a federal investigation launched into his possible accomplices. A Justice Department spokesman said the threat was being taken seriously, and additional protection had been ordered for abortion clinics last week. But a leader of the antiabortion movement derided the accused shooter as “a fruit and

said he needed to clear everything with his lawyer. Justice Department spokesman Matthew Miller said in a written statement Sunday that “we take this matter seriously, which is why the attorney general ordered increased protection of appropriate people and facilities last week.” Tiller’s clinic had been a target of regular demonstrations by abortion opponents. Most were peaceful, but his clinic was bombed in 1986, and he was shot in both arms in 1993. In 1991, a 45-day “Summer of Mercy” campaign organized by Operation Rescue drew thousands of abortion opponents to Wichita, and there were more than 2,700 arrests.

He would not elaborate. Tiller’s clinic in Wichita was among only a few in the U.S. that perform third-trimester abortions. He was shot while serving as an usher at the Lutheran church he attended. Asked if he shot Tiller, Roeder replied that he could not comment about that and

France gets its Obama moment Elaine Ganley and Jenny Barchfield THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PARIS

20476469

16 | Monday, June 8, 2009

People gawked and cameras clicked as the Obamas cut a wide figure through the French capital even while confined to a presidential motorcade. It was more personal for the few kept not so distant — the restaurant owner who “saw God,” the chauffeur reveling in a “magObama nificent mission.” President Barack Obama, wife Michelle and their two daughters touched lives in simple ways during a private stay in the French capital that closed out a six-day presidential tour rich in history, symbolism and giant messages to the world. Even a Sunday visit to the gilded Elysee presidential palace was casual and intimate. The luncheon hosted by President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife, Carla, for Michelle and the two Obama daughters looked like an advance fete for Sasha’s 8th birthday this Wednesday. The Obama trio, lingering a bit in the City of Light after the president’s departure, then went shopping at the high-end Left Bank store for children, “Bonpoint.” Media scrutiny of the family was intense. The French are confirmed fans of the Obamas, whose politics and elegant style conform to their ideal vision of the United States. The couple makes frequent appearances on the covers of French magazines. Michelle Obama, whose wardrobe choices are analyzed, gets an A-plus for sartorial glamor, natural poise and sheer intelligence. But the common touch the first American couple represents, so antithetical to the traditional pomp and circumstance of French heads of state, sets them apart. When dining out Saturday night at a no-star bistro, La Fontaine de Mars, the presidential party was served water, Coke and table wine to accompany foie gras, lamb and steak with shallots, and paid for meals “like any client,” said owner Jacques Boudon. “It’s just what they wanted.”

Lacrosse catching up

I

t has been talked about over and over again how lacrosse is growing rapidly at the local, regional and state levels. And for good reason. For years, Steamboat Springs lacrosse programs seemed destined to be years behind their peers on the Front Range. It wasn’t for a lack of effort, but long winters, long road trips to games and a lack of competition seemed to hold back the progress of lacrosse in the Yampa Valley. But Steamboat seems to be catching up rather quickly. The best evidence has come in the past couple of weeks. Steamboat Youth Lacrosse teams have had strong showings in tournaments. The Steamboat eighth-grade red team won its home tournament for the first time in the six-year history of the tournament. And it wasn’t like years past when an eighth-grade team dropped down a division. This year, Steamboat played in the best, beat the best and proved its team was, in fact, the best. Last week, departing Steamboat Springs High School seniors Jasper Gantick and Gus Worden took part in a camp to make the AllColorado lacrosse team. Worden will play at Adrian College in Adrian, Mich., in the fall, while Gantick will play at Monroe Community College in Rochester, N.Y. Still, the two showed how far the lacrosse program has come since they started playing in sixth and seventh grade. More than 60 of the top players from Colorado — about a quarter of which have full rides to Division I colleges — showed up to the three-day camp at George Washington High School. The camp ran Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with cuts coming at the end of each day. “We went down there and some guys kept asking, ‘Where See Graham, page 23

for the fourth consecutive time. Steve Fesch, who played host to a marathon tailgate party in front of his Routt County Road 129 ranch, didn’t even take a step toward the stereo. “Oh, we may get tired of it,” he said, “But it’s definitely still the right song.” All 1,032 half-marathon finishers and 313 marathon

runners summited the hill and passed in front of Fesch’s ranch, where he, Jessica Guerrero and Kim Reuter watched. Guerrero rattled a noisemaker, Fesch thumped a bucket with a hammer, and Reuter clanged a cowbell. And, in their own way, they helped runners complete the See Marathon, page 22

Phillips helps Rockies beat Cardinals, 7-2 MLB

ST. LOUIS

After the first three hitters, Ubaldo Jimenez trailed by two runs. Things got a lot tougher for the St. Louis Cardinals after that. Jimenez finished with eight innings of four-hit ball, and the Colorado Rockies got unexpect-

ed offense from Paul Phillips, who drove in three runs in a 7-2 victory on Sunday. “When you trail, your starting pitcher has to step up and subdue the opposition and give us a chance to get back in the game,” manager Jim Tracy said. “Once he got the lead, you saw a face of a guy that

said, ‘That’s it.”’ Phillips had a careerbest four hits, including his first homer since 2006. Troy Tulowitzki, who missed four games with a bruised left hand, had two hits and an RBI. The Rockies have scored 38 runs in their first four-game winning streak of the year and are 6-4 under Tracy after going 18-28 under Clint Hurdle.

They’ve beaten the Cardinals five straight times, evening the all-time series at 73-73. Albert Pujols had a rare two-run sacrifice fly in the first inning for the Cardinals, who have totaled three runs and nine hits in the past two games. Joel Pineiro (5-6) allowed three runs and 10 hits, all singles, in five innings after skipping a start because of back spasms.

grueling Steamboat Marathon. It rained, it shined, and it even hailed. But in the end, that only seemed to encourage the swarms of exhausted runners to successfully cross the downtown Steamboat finish line. “It was great,” race director Paul Sachs said. “The weather got a little worse for the marathon, but otherwise, especially with the 10-kilmoter and the half-marathon, everything was almost perfect.” On a day with constantly changing weather, only men’s marathon champion Jason Saitta JOEL REICHENBERGER/STAFF could offer some stability.

Federer wins 1st French Open PARIS

Oh, how Roger Federer savored every moment with his first French Open trophy. He raised it overhead. He cradled it in the crook of his elbow. He closed his eyes and kissed it. He examined the names of other champions etched on its base. Even in a downpour on Court Philippe Chatrier, as heavy, gray clouds blocked any shred of sunlight Sunday, that silver trophy sure seemed to glisten. Finally, the lone major championship that had eluded Federer was his. With his latest master-

ful performance, Federer tied Pete Sampras’ record of 14 major singles titles and became the sixth man to complete a career Grand Slam. Federer History was at stake, and Federer was at his best, completely outplaying No. 23-seeded Robin Soderling, of Sweden, en route to a 6-1, 76 (1), 6-4 victory in a French Open final that lacked suspense but not significance. “Maybe my greatest victory — or certainly the one that takes the most pressure off my shoulders,” Federer said in French, moments after drop-

ping to his knees, caking them with clay, as his 127 mph service winner ended the match. “I think that now, and until the end of my career, I can really play with my mind at peace and no longer hear that I’ve never won at Roland Garros.” Federer came heartbreakingly close in the past, losing the previous three French Open finals, so there certainly was something poetic about his tying Sampras’ Grand Slam mark at this particular tournament, on this particular court. “Now that he’s won in Paris, I think it just more solidifies his place in history as the greatest player that played the game,” Sampras said.

Lakers edge Magic, 101-96, in Game 2 LOS ANGELES

The big man nobody was talking about came up huge for the Lakers. Pau Gasol dominated overtime with seven of his 24 points, helping Los Angeles defeat the Orlando Magic, 101-96, on Sunday night to take a 2-0 lead in the NBA finals. Most of the focus had been on the matchup between Gasol’s teammate Andrew Bynum and Orlando star Dwight Howard. But Gasol muscled his way into the picture in his usual calm and

NBA FINALS cool way. The Spaniard was 10 of 11 from the free throw line, grabbed 10 rebounds — all on the defensive boards — had two steals and a blocked shot in nearly 44 minutes. Tied at 88, Gasol stripped the ball from Howard to begin overtime. He then scored the Lakers’ first two points on free throws. Gasol and Kobe Bryant teamed on a pick-and-roll that ended with Gasol driving to the basket and getting fouled. Bryant pointed his index finger at Gasol and they hugged before Gasol

made the free throw to keep the Lakers ahead, 97-91. Gasol added two more free throws as the Lakers went 24 of 28 from the line. A year ago, Gasol admitted he was just happy to be in his first finals after three playoff appearances with Memphis. The Lakers were blown out in a Game 6 loss to the Boston Celtics. Gasol helped Spain win a silver medal in the Beijing Olympics, then he returned to the Lakers and diligently hit the weight room. He bulked up, determined to be more of a presence despite a frame that is far from the prototypical body of a big man.

Worden, Gantick prove among best players are you from again?’” Gantick said. “But we played with them, and the coaches liked us. They liked our program.” Worden and Gantick made the cut the first two days. With only 39 players left, the coaches cut the roster down to 32, leaving the two Sailors just on the outside. Although they didn’t make

the team, they proved they were among 40 of the best players in Colorado. For comparison, LewisPalmer’s Brian Cole — a career 200-goal scorer in high school — who helped beat Steamboat in the opening round of the playoffs, was cut on the first day. It goes to show how rapidly Steamboat appears to be leveling the playing field.

So while the growth of lacrosse seems to be plateauing, the level of play in Steamboat keeps improving. — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail lgraham@steamboatpilot.com
