because childhood obesity has doubled in the past 20 years. Studies show today’s children spend half as much time outdoors as children two decades ago did. Not only does outdoor activity improve physical health and mental health, but it encourages love of outdoor recreational activities, which

accounts for tens of billions of dollars in annual revenue for the state, Dumm said. “A big chunk of our economy is part of this,” she said. “If we don’t have that next generation who enjoys going outdoors, we lose that part of our population.” See Forum, page 13

Summer calls for healthy grilling

Although I know of several die-hard locals here in Steamboat Springs who grill year-round, battling cold, wind and snow, most of us haul out our barbecue grill or smoker for outdoor cooking in the summer. And now, it is officially summer. The intense heat of grilling brings out food’s natural flavors, so there is no need to add extra calories or unhealthy fats or oils. On one hand, this makes grilling a healthy cooking option. On the other hand, cooking at high heat also can char, burn or blacken meats, and this can be unhealthy. What makes grilled foods unhealthy? Grilling foods produces carcinogens, which are cancer-causing compounds. These come in two forms. HCAs, or “heterocyclic amines,” are chemicals produced when red meat, poultry or fish is cooked at high temperatures. PAHs, or “polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons,” are produced when fat drips from the meat into the flames of the

grill and produces smoke. The PAH-filled smoke coats the food, contaminating it. They also are created when flames touch the meat itself, charring or blackening it. “Be careful when grilling because research has found that using this high-heat method of cooking (along with frying or broiling) can increase the risk for developing certain cancers,” Pam Wooster, registered dietitian at Yampa Valley Medical Center, explains. “Often the meats we are grilling, such as high-fat or highly processed meats like hot dogs or sausages, contain nitrosamines which are linked to cancer. Choose leaner meats to grill such as beef, fish, game and poultry. You can even cook crab legs on the grill.” Wooster recommends selecting smaller cuts of meat, poultry or fish so that you cut

down on total grilling time. Choose lean meats, remove the skin from poultry and trim any visible fat before grilling. The grates or rack on your grill should be cleaned after each use. It is easier to clean them while they still are slightly warm. Lightly coating grilling surfaces with cooking oil or spray will make cleanup much easier. It is a good idea to marinate meat before grilling. Food scientists have found that marinades offer spices and herbs that have antioxidants to help decrease the HCAs formed during grilling. In particular, marinades or meat rubs that contain rosemary, thyme, oregano, basil and parsley seem to have the best protection. Grilling fish and vegetables instead of red meat and poultry See Grilling, page 12

Logan Banning, 13, skates Sunday at the skatepark near Howelsen Hill. The effort to build a new concrete park in town got a major boost Friday when a $200,000 grant was approved to help fund construction.

Skatepark gets major boost GOCO throws $200,000 toward Steamboat Springs project PILOT & TODAY STAFF


Organizers said great weather, great competition and a great turnout helped Sunday’s National Go Skateboard Day celebration in Steamboat Springs be a rousing success. The weekend’s best news, however, couldn’t be seen by the crowd that gathered to watch some of the area’s top skateboarders dual in the park at the base of Howelsen Hill. The effort to build a concrete skatepark in Steamboat Springs received a major boost Friday when $200,000 in grant money was approved to help fund the project. “This is huge for us,” Philip Johnston said. Johnston manages The Click skateboarding store in Steamboat, which helped sponsor Sunday’s event. He also has been on the front lines of the fight to replace the small skate-

park at Howelsen Hill with a much larger concrete park. The new park would be constructed on the Bear River Parcel in west Steamboat. He said the grant, from Great Outdoors Colorado, will pay for about half of the park’s anticipated cost. The organization, known as GOCO, uses lottery revenues to fund projects across the state. Johnston said the Steamboat Skatepark Alliance has banked about $50,000 itself and is waiting to hear about several other grants. According to the group’s Web site,, construction on the park could begin as soon as August. “We might just need to raise another $75,000, and that would take care of the whole thing,” he said. To come up with that amount, the Alliance will sell bricks ranging from $150 to $1,000 that will be built into the new venue.

If Sunday’s crowd is any indication, the effort shouldn’t run short on enthusiasm. About 25 skateboarders took turns dipping, diving, flying and flipping across the downtown park. A large crowd was on hand to cheer every move. Competitors traveled from up and down the Yampa River Valley for the event, and they ranged from expert to beginner. “It was a lot of fun,” said 13-year-old Logan Banning, who placed third in the beginner category. Logan said he has been skateboarding a lot more this summer after taking a few seasons off. Even without years invested in the sport, he said the advantages of a new park were not lost on him. “It’d be great if they could build it,” he said. “This one is pretty small and can get pretty crowded sometimes. A new park would really help.”

There have recently been recommendations to plant native grasses in lawns to conserve water. This might not be the best thing to do. There are few if any native grasses that make good lawn grasses in this area, and seed is not available for most. The two most commonly introduced grasses recommended in this area are tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass. Tall fescue is recommended as being drought resistant. It is a bunchgrass and tends to

Don’t forget to fertilize Fertilizer is one of the first maintenance activities that should be undertaken in the spring. Chances are, you’ll need to add nitrogen to the soil to promote growth.

Churches offer free dinners

����������� ����������

Events said to be opportunities for people to connect religion-free Jack Weinstein



Before deciding where or what to eat Thursday evening, consider St. Paul’s Episcopal Church’s community dinner. Not Episcopalian? Not a churchgoer? Not a person of faith? No problem. “Perhaps it’s the least churchy event possible,” said Aaron Buttery, youth minister and mission director at St. Paul’s. “It truly is an open community dinner that anybody and everybody can participate in.” The community dinners, held at 5:30 p.m. on the last Thursday of each month, began in February as a project that St. Paul’s ministry undertook

to learn about the needs of the community, Buttery said. In addition to that, he said, the dinners serve as an opportunity for members of the community to share a meal and learn about one another. Lisa-Marie Baker, youth minister at Holy Name Catholic Church, said it was that love of community that inspired Holy Name also to start offering the program. Holy Name’s community dinners are held at 6:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month. Buttery and Baker said meals are cooked by the parishioners of each church or have been donated by local restaurants including Epicurean Cafe, Steamboat Meat & Seafood Co. and Johnny B. Good’s Diner. “We try to make it something

that’s a full community experience,” Buttery said. “But it should be tasty, really good.” Buttery said the state of the economy necessarily wasn’t a factor in the church’s decision to start offering the community dinners, but it didn’t hurt. He said the dinners have grown to feed between 45 and 70 people. But Buttery said the real value is getting to know members of the community, and they in turn getting to know him. “While the numbers tell a story, they’re perhaps not the most important,” he said. “When someone comes in and I can ask them how their month was, an intelligent question about their life, and they ask about my life, that’s growth.”

Fresh season of music upon us STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

I’m back, and that can mean only one thing: a fresh season of music is upon us at the Strings Music Pavilion. Please allow me to re-introduce myself. My name is Elissa Greene, and I am the education and IT director for Strings Music Festival. In the following weeks, Greene you will read about upcoming summer concerts, some exciting things we have done recently and some things to expect to see in the future. On Thursdays throughout the entire season, beginning this week on the 25th, are the free Music on the Green concerts at the Yampa River Botanic Park. These casual lunchtime concerts feature Strings Young Artists in Residence, the Meridian Quartet — all members of the prestigious New World Symphony in Miami — and several talented local musicians. The Meridian Quartet performs June 25, July 2 and July 9. The July 16 program features the Steamboat Wind Trio, consisting of Steamboat Springs Orchestra and Strings Festival Orchestra members Mary Beth Norris, flute; Gary Foss, clarinet; and John Fairlie, bassoon. Trevor G. Potter performs acoustic American folk music July 23, Steve Boynton and Tim Cunningham play jazz July 30, Western band Yampa Valley Boys perform August 6, and folk group Legal Tender

are featured August 13. This Saturday is Opening Night featuring the Strings Festival Orchestra with violin soloist Elmar Oliveira, kicking off the regular Strings summer season. Oliveira has been nominated twice for Grammy Awards, and he remains the only American violinist to win the Gold Medal at the Tchaikovsky International Competition. He also was the first violinist to win the coveted Avery Fisher Prize. Other winners include Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, Joshua Bell and Midori. He will be performing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. The orchestra also will perform Visions and Miracles by contemporary American composer Christopher Theofanidis and Beethoven’s 8th Symphony. On Sunday, Strings presents Four Bitchin’ Babes. These women are hilarious. And they’re amazing musicians. If you missed their past shows at Strings, you really want to make it to this one. I recom-

mend it for a girls’ night out, but they’re not too hard on men, so guys, don’t feel like you won’t be welcome. At this show, we will be getting a sneak preview of their new album, Diva Nation, due out this September. Because of the constant overwhelming demand for Tuesday youth concerts — some of this year’s events sold out in just a week — we have added an encore performance of Taiko With Toni at 1 p.m. June 30. Taiko drumming incorporates percussion on large drums and dance movements while playing. Toni Yagami, of Denver, performs in traditional costume using different sizes of taiko drums, various hand percussion, bamboo flutes and the koto, a Japanese harp. At $10 for adults and $1 for children, this is a great one for the whole family. Stay tuned every Monday to read my column for all the reasons you won’t want to miss the concerts at the Strings Music Pavilion this summer.

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

Obama’s fly move Maureen Dowd


The White House has two kinds of aides: the ones who prefer to think of their boss as gifted but human, and the ones who think their boss is on a date night with destiny. The first group thinks that when things go really well for President Barack Obama that he’s benefiting from luck, as well as skill. For instance, they suggest, if any one of the sharpshooters from the Dowd Navy SEALs who killed the three Somali pirates holding the American captain had aimed a millimeter to the left, maybe the captain would have been killed, and the incident would have turned into a symbol of weakness — as when Jimmy Carter’s attempt to free the hostages in Iran ended with a helicopter crash in

the desert. And what if there had been another terrorist attack in America? Everything would be seen through a darker lens. The second group of aides are more caught up in the myth and magic, feeling that Obama summons the threepoint swishes when he needs them; that his popularity is not so fragile; that the president’s unparalleled vision and buzzer-beating will can shape fate. Just so, there are some Americans who think the president got an excess of attention from an excitable news media for expeditiously executing a fly that was buzzing around his face during an interview with CNBC and The New York Times’ John Harwood. And there are others who see a mystical, metaphorical dimension to the way the president nonchalantly lasered in on the meddlesome insect after it ignored his admonition, “Hey, get outta here.” Without even uncrossing his legs or lunging about, the Chill One caught it,

crushed it and kicked it aside and then said to Harwood, “Now, where were we?” before returning to his point about regulatory reform. “It’s like he’s got one of those Fly Terminator targeting systems in his eyes,” marveled Jon Stewart. Maybe the president who collected Spider-Man comics as a child couldn’t resist the age-old face-off with a fly. The moment had echoes of parables in which the ordinary one becomes the golden one. In “The Karate Kid,” a teenager whose father has died learns lessons about the body and spirit from his surrogate father and karate teacher, Mr. Miyagi. His lessons are about not going to the dark side, the importance of discipline, and catching flies. “Man who catch fly with chopstick,” Mr. Miyagi says, “accomplish anything.” In the Grimms’ fairy tale “The See Dowd, page 9

Lettuce from the garden, with worms Nicholas D. Kristof THE NEW YORK TIMES

Growing up on a farm near Yamhill, Ore., I quickly learned to appreciate the difference between fresh, home-grown foods and the commercial versions in the supermarket. Store-bought lettuce always was lush, green and pristine, and thus vastly preferable to lettuce from my Mom’s vegetable garden (organic before we called it that). Her lettuce kept me on my toes because a caterKristof pillar might come crawling out of my salad. We endured endless elk and venison — my Dad still is hunting at age 90 — or ate beef from steers raised on our own pasture, but “grass-fed” had no allure for me. I longed for delicious, wholesome food that my friends in town ate. Like hot dogs.


Throughout the years, though, I’ve become nostalgic for an occasional bug in my salad, for an apple that feels as if it were designed by God rather than by a committee. More broadly, it has become clear that the same factors that impelled me toward factory-produced meat and vegetables — cheap, predictable food — also resulted in a profoundly unhealthy American diet. I’ve often criticized America’s health care system, and I fervently hope that we’re going to see a public insurance option this year. But one reason for our health problems is our industrialized agriculture system, and that should be under scrutiny, as well. A terrific new documentary, “Food, Inc.,” playing in cinemas nationwide, offers a powerful and largely persuasive diagnosis of American agriculture. Go see it, but be warned that you may not want to eat for a week afterward. (It was particularly unnerving to see

leftover animal bits washed over with ammonia and ground into “hamburger filler.” If you happen to be eating a hamburger as you read this, I apologize.) “The way we eat has changed more in the last 50 years than in the previous 10,000,” Michael Pollan, the food writer, declares in the film. What’s even more eerie is the way animals are being re-engineered. For example, most Americans prefer light meat to dark, so chickens have been redesigned to produce more white meat by growing massive breasts that make them lopsided. Who knew that breast augmentation was so widespread in chicken barns? “When they grow from a chick and in seven weeks you’ve got a 5 1/2-pound chicken, their bones and their internal organs can’t keep up with the rapid growth,” explained Carole Morison, a Maryland chicken farmer who allowed See Kristof, page 9 Bruce Tinsley allows readers to submit comments on stories, to create their own blogs and to participate in our Reader Forum.

Some fear Obama too prone to negotiation Dowd continued from 8 Brave Little Tailor,” a tailor brandishing a rag kills seven flies swarming around his jam-smeared bread. The little man admires his own bravery so much — “For joy his heart wagged like a lamb’s tail” — that he wants the whole world to know about it. So he stitches up a belt for himself embroidered with the legend “Seven at one blow!” and saunters out. Protected by his legend, using brains rather than brawn, he dispatches two giants and captures a unicorn and a wild boar before winning a princess and living happily ever after as a king. The president didn’t order up a “One at one blow!” belt. You don’t need such accessories in the era of YouTube viral vid-

eos. But he did admire his own ninja moves so much that he gave himself a shout-out: “That was pretty impressive, wasn’t it? I got the sucker.” Then he solicited more snaps for what Harwood called his “‘Make my day’ moment” from his press secretary off-camera: “Whaddya think, Gibbs?” After the interview was over, he continued his superfly moves by cleaning up the carcass with a napkin. The moment may have resonated so much because some Americans fear that Obama is too prone to negotiation, comity and splitting the difference, that he could have been tougher on avaricious banks and vicious Iranian dictators. The “shocking murder in the White House,” as Stephen Colbert dubbed it, was a small moment. “All they want is to be

loved and to feed on our waste,” Jeff “The Fly” Goldblum said in a dry defense of the exoskeletal creatures on the “Colbert Report.” But at least this moment didn’t involve any talking or therapy or charm or compromise or seminars. “The snuff aspect of it was psychologically useful for Obama,” Harwood told me. “He decided to take it out, and he did take it out.” If only the president could be so brazen about pushing through gay rights and health care. Harwood was bemused about the serious issues in his interview getting swallowed by a bug. “It will be the most noticed thing in my career,” he conceded, “but I’m rolling with it.”

Pathogens now seep into unlikeliest foods Kristof continued from 8 the film crew into her barns. “A lot of these chickens here, they can take a few steps and then they plop down. It’s because they can’t keep up with all the weight that they’re carrying.” Huge confinement operations for livestock and poultry produce very cheap meat and eggs. But at what cost? The documentary introduces us to Barbara Kowalcyk, whose 2 1/2-year-old child, Kevin, went from healthy to dead in 12 days, after he ate a hamburger tainted with E. coli bacteria. Even after his death, it took weeks for the tainted meat to be recalled. “Sometimes it seems that industry was more protected than my son,” Kowalcyk complains. She has a point. Agribusiness companies exercise huge political

influence, and industry leaders often fill regulatory posts. The Food and Drug Administration consequently dozed, and the number of food safety inspections plunged. There is some evidence that pathogens, including E. coli, become much more common in factory farming operations. Move feedlot cattle out to a pasture for five days, and they will lose 80 percent of the E. coli in their gut, the film says. And the massive routine feeding of antibiotics to farm animals is a disgrace that reduces the effectiveness of antibiotics in treating sick humans. Pathogens now are seeping into the unlikeliest foods. On Friday, the FDA advised consumers not to eat Nestle cookie dough because of concerns about E. coli contamination, after reports of illness in

28 states. American agribusiness truly is wondrous. When I moved back to the United States after years of living in China, I remember visiting a supermarket and feeling a near-religious awe. Yet one consequence of this wondrous system is that unhealthy calories are cheaper than nutritious ones: Think of the relative prices of Twinkies and broccoli. We even inflict unhealthy food on children in the school lunch program, and one in three Americans born after 2000 is expected to develop diabetes. The solutions aren’t simple and may involve paying more for what we eat, although we may save some of that in reduced health costs for diabetes and heart disease. In any case, “Food, Inc.” notes that we as consumers do have power.

Older adults guide housing alternatives

Editor’s note: This article includes information from “Housing and Retirement Living: Redefining the Continuum,” by Sandra Timmermann, Journal of Financial Service Professionals, December 2005. Tamera Manzanares


Imagine a cozy gathering of cottages for residents nearing or in the midst of retirement. The setting, which includes a café, gym, pharmacy, medical clinic, transit depot and community areas, meets many residents’ needs, enabling them to safely remain as independent as possible. Within the comfort of the community, there also are health and social programs such as home health services, an adult day center, assisted living and skilled nursing home to help residents as their needs increase. This vision may not be too far from reality in Routt County, where groups are exploring supportive housing options residents hope to have when or if they are no longer able to remain in their homes. “Overwhelmingly, seniors would like to think they will stay in their homes,” explained Heidi Aggeler, managing director of BBC Research & Consulting, a Denver firm which recently conducted a housing needs assessment for Routt County. The assessment, paid for by a grant from the Colorado Division of Housing, included some input from older adults (the number of surveys was proportional to the percentage of older adults in the county). However, staff at the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association, which has


been working to provide more wellness and support services for older adults, wanted to learn more about living situations and lifestyles older residents have in mind. The VNA’s Aging Well program and BBC Research & Consulting are hosting focus groups Thursday to help gauge older adult housing needs in the county. The results of the discussions, in addition to more surveys of older adults in Routt County, will be incorporated into the draft report of the Routt County Housing Needs Assessment.

A continuum of housing Rather than ignore the possibility of needing a more accommodating home — one with support close by and no stairs to climb or yards to maintain — the VNA is hoping residents will begin considering alternatives and plan for potential transition. This doesn’t have to be a dreary prospect. Fueled by Baby Boomers’ demands and lifestyles, more and more options are filling the gap between independent living and assisted living and nursing homes. Unlike some rural areas, Northwest Colorado already has a variety of living options for older adults including senior apartments, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. New programs, such as adult day services, also are helping older adults remain in their homes or with family caregivers, longer. What is missing from the mix are flexible housing options that accommodate and encourage active, independent lifestyles but include safe and convenient access to supportive services. “Your continuum is a little bit fractured,” said Aggeler, who has conducted similar surveys and

Focus groups The VNA’s Aging Well program is seeking residents ages 50 and older from throughout Routt County to have their voices heard and discuss their hopes for future supportive housing. Results will be incorporated into the Routt County Housing Needs Assessment, which will help guide future planning and development. One set of focus groups will meet at 5:30 p.m. and another at 6:45 p.m. Thursday at the Steamboat Springs Community Center. For more information or to be placed in a focus group, call 871-7676.

more detailed analysis of older adults’ housing needs in other communities.

New alternatives Nearly all pre-retirees want to live in their own homes during retirement, according to a 2004 survey by The MetLife Market Institute and AARP. As a second option, many would prefer living in an adult retirement community with homes/apartments and services and amenities for people 55 and older. Survey participants cited independence and a sense of community as strong factors in their decisions about where to live in retirement. Although adult retirement communities are nothing new, there is a trend toward smaller developments for older adults built on a small-town, community concept. Some models have a campus-like setting, where residents live in small houses or duplexes. These small communities may include health, personal care and transportation services, as well as wellness facilities and programs. Additional features, such as parks, open space, playgrounds, a child care center,


Pre-retirees’ desire for independence and sense of community is fueling new options for older adult housing. Some new models focus on a campus setting that includes independent living cottages or apartments with amenities and services accommodating a more long-term living situation.

café and activity centers, also appeal to the larger community, creating a lively and engaging intergenerational neighborhood setting for older adults. One version of this, the continuing care retirement community, offers several levels of care — independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing — in one location, providing a more comfortable and assured longterm living solution. These communities usually involve a long-term contract, upfront payment or fee (part of which may be refunded to a person’s estate after death) and/ or monthly fees to guarantee ongoing services. Potential residents usually have to be in good health to move in. Another trend in older adult communities is co-housing, little developments where residents live in private quarters but gather for communal meals, chores and activities. The communities’ layout and design reflect traditional neighbor-

hoods and encourage a closeknit community with prominent front doors, porches and walkways as well as communal gardens and open space. The co-housing concept, originally developed for young families, can be particularly appealing to individuals or couples interested in pooling resources or being part of a family-like community of older adults. There are no rules, of course, to what these communities look like or include. There can be many different versions and combinations based on the needs and desires of older adults in a region or community. This is why it’s important for local adults planning for or are in the midst of retirement, to share their thoughts on living situations that would best suit their lifestyles and needs. Older individuals in Routt County interested in participating in a housing focus group Thursday should call 871-7676.

is even healthier. Vegetables will not produce HCAs. Because fish typically is lower in fat, it requires less time to grill, further reducing the exposure to carcinogens. Here are some other precautions to follow when grilling in order to minimize the amount of carcinogens that are consumed: ■ Pre-cook meats to reduce the overall grilling time. ■ Grill at lower temperatures using a meat thermometer to ensure that meat is completely cooked. ■ Place aluminum foil between your meat and the grill to prevent charring. ■ Cook food in the center of the grill and move coals


to the side to prevent fat and juices from dripping on them. ■ Cut charred, blackened or burned pieces off of meat before eating. ■ Add sauces at the end of grilling time to prevent burning. Another important cooking health tip is to avoid crosscontamination. Use one plate and spatula to carry raw food out to the grill and use another clean plate and spatula for the cooked food. Never put cooked food back into the marinade that was used for raw food. So, enjoy the summer grilling season. Stick to a few basic tips for healthy outdoor grilling — avoid charring meats, choose healthy meats by staying away from high-fat

or highly processed selections and cook meats to the right temperature. Don’t limit your grilling to meats — add vegetables and fruits for a healthy variety. Eating moderate amounts of non-charred, grilled meats cooked to a safe temperature does not pose a big health problem. Experiment with meat rubs and marinades, which are a simple, healthy way to ensure flavorful, juicy results without adding significant fat or calories.

There are dozens of varieties of bluegrass, some of which are drought resistant. Brilliant, Rugby II and Moonlight are three of those varieties that use less water. Bluegrass will go dormant during long drought periods and generally will not die out. Water can be conserved by reducing the size of the grassy area and planting more xeriscape plants. Any new lawn seeding should be mulched with straw or grass clippings and kept wet during establishment. Smooth brome and crested wheatgrass are two introduced grasses that can be used in low maintenance areas and require little or no water.

Carson said it was important not only for Steamboat to provide input about how to encourage children to get outdoors, but to receive feedback from other communities in the state that could help the city enhance its outdoor educational offerings. O’Brien first will stop in Steamboat at 10 a.m. Tuesday

Dinners don’t include prayer Dinners continued from 5 Baker shared a similar sentiment. “So often when people go into service,” she said, “they think they’ll change the people they meet. But we’re the ones who are changed by the people we’re serving.” She added that she and Buttery have noticed the dinners have grown and would like to see them continue to grow. Buttery and Baker emphasized that the dinners didn’t

incorporate prayer or a religious element, but they would both be open to answering anyone’s questions about faith should that come up. They said St. Paul’s and Holy Name will continue to offer the community dinners as long as there’s a need for interaction between members of the community. “We look forward to doing this indefinitely,” Baker said.

Not only that, but it encourages the state’s youth to understand the value of conservation, said Catherine Carson, chairwoman of the Routt County Democratic Party. “It really increases the respect our children and adults have and the responsibility for the future of our environment,” Carson said. Carson said there are so many outdoor programs, like Rocky Mountain Youth Corps and Yampatika, offered to Steamboat youths that our county can be an example for the rest of the state. “I suspect places like Steamboat, kids are more active and attune to outdoor activity,” Dumm said. “That’s why we’re coming, to see what works there and if it can be translated to other communities in the state.” Dumm said outdoor education is one of the issues O’Brien has advocated as president of the Colorado Child’s Campaign for the 16 years before her tenure as lieutenant governor.

Rainy spring hurts hay farmers

Colorado’s wet spring has helped some farmers, but it’s leaving some Eastern Plains hay farmers with a soggy mess. Farmers say plentiful rain this spring has helped most crops, including grass hay and alfalfa used to feed horses and cattle. But after the hay is cut, too much rain can prevent the hay from properly drying out. In northeastern Colorado, farmer Don Leonard calls the wet spring an “economic disaster” for him. “I’ve been at this for 35 years, and this is about as tough as it’s been for me,” he told The Denver Post. In the past 30 days, the precipitation levels for northeastern Colorado were mostly between 5 and 8 inches, according to the National Weather Service. In June 2008, precipitation levels for the same region were mostly between 0.5 and 2 inches.

worthy service to those who have no or low income, said Bob Holmes, executive director of Homeward Pikes Peak, an agency that coordinates local homeless services. “Peter has boiled down his calling or his propensity to help the homeless to something incredibly practical,” Holmes said. “He’s the real deal.” His cause has the support of Criterium Bike Shops, which has paid The Bike Clinic’s monthly rent for 16 years and regularly donates used bike parts and frames. “We’re in business to make money, but we understand there are people in this community that can’t afford to buy a bike but still deserve to ride a bike and need transportation,” said Chris Behm, a senior staff member at Criterium. Recipients say the bicycles they receive are life-changing.

A Colorado Springs man who has been giving away free bikes to the poor for years has a problem — too many requests. Now, the bike tuner is asking for help for the first time, asking charities to donate money to hire a mechanic to help him refurbish used bikes. Peter Sprunger-Froese, of The Bike Clinic, says the free bikes are important for people who can’t afford transportation. He’s been doing the volunteer work solo since 1993, turning out about 14 bikes a week. But he says the bad economy has left him with more requests than he can handle alone. “I have an inordinate number of people asking for bikes that had a car or a home until very recently but lost their jobs, had their cars repossessed and

no longer have money for rent,” he told The (Colorado Springs) Gazette. About a dozen people a day now appeal to Sprunger-Froese to assemble bikes from discarded carcasses and innards that bike shops and individuals donate. That’s about double the normal traffic, SprungerFroese said. The increased demand has created a waiting list of 73 people, and Sprunger-Froese’s efforts now consume 60 to 80 hours of his time each week. Last week, Sprunger-Froese asked local organizations that help the homeless to consider donating money to pay for another bike mechanic. “Furnishing second-hand bikes is an important aspect in human uplift — as important as providing a roof, food and counseling,” he said. The Bike Clinic provides a

horse owners in Colorado. Lance Shockley, a horse trainer who owns a farm in Loveland, told the newspaper that said that after the first cutting, he needs about five to seven days of dry weather in order to bale it up and sell it. “At this point, there’s not very much alfalfa for people to be purchasing,” he said. Recent hail storms in northeast Colorado have been especially bad for alfalfa because the hail strips the leaves off it. John Stulp, commissioner of agriculture for Colorado, said the effects of the rain depend on what stage farmers are in during the hay-farming process. He said he has not seen any significant decreases in prices so far, but if the rain keeps coming, that might change. “If you have hay that’s been weather-damaged and the color isn’t good, then you can see the price drop half of what it’s worth,” he said.

Leonard, also the treasurer of the Colorado Hay and Forage Association, says the hay on the ground has been there for 28 days without drying. Last summer, his hay was on the ground for five days before it was baled and ready for sale. Leonard predicts he’ll produce about 4,000 tons of hay from his first cutting but that it won’t be up to par. Last year, he said, the first cutting yielded 5,000 tons of goodquality hay. “We have expectations that conditions will get better, and we have hope that the price will remain the same as last year,” he said. Jodie Pitcock, market reporting supervisor for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s marketing service, says there has been little “supreme” and “premium” quality hay this month, instead being in three lower categories. The hay downturn will mean less good feed for ranchers and

Rockies win 5th straight, against Pirates


A queen among Kings


t’s hard not to like Colleen King’s game. I witnessed it first hand last fall while covering volleyball. As a setter, she had everyone fooled — including me. She set up for a set and instead unleashed a rocket over the net just inside the line that, by the grace of God, didn’t break my nose. The other team didn’t see it either. It was just a point, but it was then that I knew King was Division I bound. But it shouldn’t be a surprise that King will play for the University of Denver. Besides her God-given athletic ability, King comes from a pretty darn good family. Sure, it helps she’s 6-foot-1 and agile, but knowing and watching her interact with her family might be the best indicator of her past and future successes. By no means do I know the Kings well, but from everything I’ve heard, it’s a family that does things the right way. Certainly the lineage helps. Colleen’s father, Buddy, played quarterback in college. Her two older sisters, Tara and Shannon, were both outstanding athletes in high school, and they may have been the biggest influences on Colleen. Tara has been quite the setter herself. The 2006 Steamboat Springs High School graduate just finished her redshirt sophomore year at Mesa State College in Grand Junction where she was among the leaders in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference in assists. Shannon was very affective in high school, playing basketball and volleyball. Parents Buddy and Joanie also drove Colleen down to Fort Collins at least twice a week in the spring to allow her to play on a highly competitive club volleyball team. See Graham, page 22




Phil Mickelson tees off on the fourth hole during the third round of the U.S. Open at Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale, N.Y., on Sunday.

US Open halted

Barnes, Glover tied for lead when play was stopped Doug Ferguson



Ricky Barnes flashed a smile as big as his six-shot lead. He was double digits under par, only the fourth player in U.S. Open history to get that low. He had a six-shot lead over his closest rival, while the stars struggled to make up ground. Phil Mickelson was making as many bogeys as birdies. Tiger Woods fell 15 shots behind. It all changed in a New York minute. When darkness settled over Bethpage Black as the final round still was young, Barnes was tied for the lead with

Lucas Glover. Both of them were at 7-under par, five shots clear of anyone else. Neither has ever faced the nerves of contending in a major. What once appeared to be a two-man race suddenly had endless possibilities: ■ Mickelson made two long birdie putts on his last three holes for a 69 in the third round, and after pars on the two holes he played in the final round, he was only five shots behind. ■ David Duval, a former British Open champion without a victory in eight years, kept coming back from sluggish starts and found himself very much in the hunt at 2 under with 16 holes to play. ■ Woods finished a frus-

trating day on the greens with an eight-foot birdie putt on the 489-yard seventh hole, putting him at even par in the tournament for the first time since the 14th hole of the opening round. He was seven shots behind with 11 to play. Barnes, who finished the third round of this raindelayed U.S. Open with a one-shot lead at 8-under 202, chopped his way to bogey on the opening hole of the final round to lose his lead. Then he hooked his tee shot into gnarly clumps of the grass along a hillside left of the fairway on No. 2. When the horn sounded to stop play, he quickly marked his position and walked briskly off the course.

As the Colorado Rockies keep piling up the victories, a different star seems to emerge each day. On Sunday, it was Clint Barmes’ turn. Barmes homered, drove in two runs and scored two more and the Colorado Rockies comSUNDAY’S pleted a sweep GAME: of the Pittsburgh Rockies 5 Pirates and ran Pirates 4 their latest winning streak to five games with a 5-4 victory. Less than 24 hours after Todd Helton hit a game-winning homer in the ninth, the Rockies have won for the 16th time in 17 games — including an 11-game winning streak — and improved to 18-5 under manager Jim Tracy. Barmes doubled to drive in Colorado’s second run of the in the second inning and homered in the fourth to score what proved to be the game-winning run. “Clint Barmes is thriving where he’s hitting in our lineup right now,” Tracy said. “He’s giving us everything we need from him at the plate, and he’s making the plays in the field.” The veteran second baseman and No. 2 hitter has eight home runs and is batting .290. “I do what I can,” Barmes said. “And I’ll take every hit I can get and make a contribution when the situation presented me.” Colorado finished its homestand, 8-1. “Great game to win, an incredible home stand,” said Tracy, who took over for Clint Hurdle on May 29. Jorge De La Rosa (3-7) overcame a shaky start to win at Coors Field for the first time this season. He went 5 2/3 innings and allowed three walks, four runs and seven hits. He also struck out six.



Kasey Kahne gave struggling Richard Petty Motorsports a much-needed boost Sunday, holding off Tony Stewart at Infineon Raceway to snap a 37race winless streak. Kahne was met in Victory Lane by Richard Petty, who made his first trip as a car owner in more than a decade. A Petty-owned car had not won a race since John Andretti’s victory at Martinsville in April, 1999. “I feel just as good as he does,” said The King, clad in his trademark cowboy hat and sunglasses. “It’s great, man. It’s great.” Petty’s race team teetered on the verge of collapse at the end of last season and needed a January merger with Gillett-



Evernham Motorsports to stay in business. The team was rebranded as Richard Petty Motorsports and kicked off the season with a strong showing at the Daytona 500. But it’s been a rough ride, since. Team manufacturer Chrysler is in Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and funding to RPM has slowed to a crawl as Dodge restructures. The team laid off nine employees earlier this month and made companywide salary cuts, and

it’s been plagued by whispers of financial instability the past several weeks. Just Saturday, majority team owner George Gillett agreed to sell the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens in a deal that should help him fight any solvency issues. It’s made for a frustrating season for Kahne, the star of the four-driver team, who at times this year has been vocal about RPM’s progress. His criticism prompted team officials to push out a new Dodge engine, and the improved motor had given Kahne hope that there’s reason for optimism. Now, he has his first victory on a road course — a remedy for any disgruntled driver. “I learned how to drive on dirt,” Kahne said. “So to come out and win on a road course ... it feels great. I can’t believe it.”

US advances in Confederations Cup Stuart Condie



Outplayed by Italy and Brazil, the U.S. soccer team once again was on the verge of first-round elimination from a big international tournament. To reach the semifinals of the Confederations Cup, the Americans needed to beat Egypt by at least three goals while the Italians lost to Brazil by at least three. Astronomical odds, right? Well, that’s exactly what happened. Charlie Davies scored in the 21st minute and Michael Bradley — the son of U.S. coach Bob Bradley — added a goal in the 63rd, scoring on Father’s Day for the second straight year. Clint Dempsey then broke a

nine-month international scoreless streak in the 71st, giving the United States an improbable 3-0 victory Sunday. And in a game played simultaneously, Brazil defeated Italy 3-0. Now it’s onto a semifinal matchup Wednesday with European champion Spain, unbeaten in its past 35 matches and the world’s to-ranked team. “All of the critics in America who said we were no good after losing to Italy and Brazil, let’s see what they say now,” Michael Bradley said. Since advancing to the 2002 World Cup quarterfinals, the U.S. team had been knocked out of the first round of the 2003 Confederations Cup, the 2006

������� ������


World Cup and the 2007 Copa America. “Big surprise, but we knew we were capable of this,” Landon Donovan said. “Now we have a difficult game ahead of us and a very big match.” They lost to Spain, 1-0, in an exhibition at Santander last year. “We know the way they can move the ball and keep possession,” Bob Bradley said. “We played a good first half, but they wore us down in the second half, and it didn’t feel too good.” Brazil (3-0) won Group B with nine points and plays Thursday against host South Africa. While the U.S., Italy and Egypt all finished at 1-2, the Americans scored four goals and allowed six. Italy also had a minus-2 goal difference but scored only three goals, and Egypt was minus-3.

2 athletes who will do things the right way

Who says the oldest and most tradition-laden of tennis’ major championships doesn’t change with the times? There is, at long last, a retractable roof atop Centre Court at Wimbledon this year. Video review of line calls and equal prize money for men and women came along Williams ages ago (well, OK, in 2007). Rest assured: They still use grass courts, they still make the players wear white, and they still schedule a day off on the middle Sunday of a tournament first held in 1877. Here’s something else that stays the same at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club: Venus Williams and Serena Williams are the women to beat. Venus, in particular. She’s won five titles, including the last two, at Wimbledon, which begins today. Serena has won this Grand Slam tournament twice, beating Venus in the 200203 finals and losing to her in last year’s championship match. The names and faces at the top of women’s tennis keep switching, as players emerge, then recede or retire — Martina Hingis, Justine Henin, Jennifer Capriati, Lindsay Davenport, Amelie Mauresmo. The Williams sisters? One or the other — or both — participated in eight of

the past nine Wimbledon finals, and they’re the top picks of British oddsmakers this time. “Serena and I, we often talk about that: ‘Wonder what happened to them?’ We’re still here — and we’re not leaving,” Venus said Sunday, two days before she’ll open her attempt to become the first woman since Steffi Graf in 1991-93 to win three consecutive Wimbledon championships. “It’s been a real blessing to have the success that we’ve had and to be able to be still playing great tennis at this point, obviously with the outlook of still playing great tennis for years to come,” she continued, noting she wants to enter the 2012 London Olympics. “I don’t see anything changing for a while.” As the defending women’s champion, No. 3-seeded Venus is slated to play her first match Tuesday on Centre Court, against Stefanie Voegele, of Switzerland. A statistic for Voegele to ponder: Her career Grand Slam record is 0-1, and Venus’ is 180-38. Second-seeded Serena starts on Day 1. She faces 154thranked Neuza Silva, of Portugal, on Centre Court after Roger Federer meets Yen-hsun Lee, of Taiwan, in what, in theory, could be the first match in the 132year history of Wimbledon to be played indoors. There is a 20 percent chance of rain today. The new translucent roof on Centre Court, an arena that

of those. She learned that from her family. She learned that to compete at any level, it takes more than one good player. Steamboat coach Wendy Hall called Colleen part of the 1 percent group. Certainly some of that had to do with her physical abilities, but Hall said Colleen’s presence on the court and as a teammate makes each player around her better. Can there be anything better said about an athlete? So while Colleen still has


her senior year left for people to enjoy, her graduation won’t bring an end to the King dynasty. Younger brothers Brody and McKenyon still have four years of high school — something that already has several high school coaches smiling. And judging by the family tree, Brody and McKenyon will not only be phenomenal athletes, but two athletes who will do things the right way. — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail

Cardinals rout Royals, 12-5 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Albert Pujols finished off a three-day romp in Kansas City with two homers and six RBIs, helping the St. Louis Cardinals rout the Royals, 12-5, on Sunday in win No. 2,500 for manager Tony La Russa. Pujols made a mockery of Kansas City pitching in his return to the town where he went to high school, hitting three homers and driving in 10 runs in the Cardinals’ three-game sweep against their cross-state rivals.

Orioles 2, Phillies 1 PHILADELPHIA

Brian Roberts had the decisive hit for the second straight game, a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning, and Baltimore completed a three-game sweep of slumping Philadelphia.

Red Sox 6, Braves 5 BOSTON

Nick Green homered just inside the Pesky Pole in right field on the first pitch of the bottom of the ninth to give Boston a win against Atlanta.

MLB ROUNDUP matched a career high with four RBIs, Carl Crawford drove in a pair of runs, and Tampa Bay broke out of an offensive slumber with a victory against New York.

White Sox 4, Reds 1 CINCINNATI

Mark Buehrle pitched seven shutout innings, his latest impressive showing against the National League, and Chicago added to its run of success against Cincinnati.

Blue Jays 9, Nationals 4 WASHINGTON

Toronto avoided the unsavory distinction of becoming the first team to be swept by the bottom-dwelling Washington Nationals, getting five RBIs from Lyle Overbay and a solid outing by Ricky Romero. MINNEAPOLIS

Wandy Rodriguez pitched seven strong innings for his first win in more than a month to lead Houston against Minnesota.


Hanley Ramirez and Cody Ross homered, and Florida held off a late rally to beat the struggling Yankees after CC Sabathia left early with an injury.

Tigers 3, Brewers 2 DETROIT

At Detroit, Brandon Inge hit a three-run homer, and Justin Verlander pitched into the eighth to help Detroit sweep Milwaukee.

Rays 10, Mets 6 NEW YORK

B.J. Upton homered and

Cubs 6, Indians 2 CHICAGO

Randy Wells pitched into the seventh inning for his first major league win, Geovany Soto homered and Jake Fox drove in three runs to lead Chicago past Cleveland for its fourth straight victory.

Correia (4-5) struck out seven and combined with three relievers on a two-hitter. The right-hander retired his first 14 batters before Orlando Cabrera hit a twoout double.

Barry Zito carried a no-hit bid into the seventh inning, Randy Winn hit a go-ahead single, and San Francisco took advantage of another Texas mistake to complete a series sweep. Zito (4-7) didn’t allow a hit until Andruw Jones’ two-run homer with none out in the seventh, a line drive that stayed just fair inside the left-field foul pole.
