Locals Pass the Bread Community dinners bring friends, strangers together Margaret Hair



After almost 35 years of living in Steamboat, Tracy Barnett can remember when throwing a party meant inviting nearly everyone in town. That might have become a bit trickier as the population has grown, but at an experimental dinner party Friday, about 30

households gathered friends and strangers to try and bring back that community spirit. Barnett and her husband invited a couple of people they knew and reached out to a summer resident and his 13year-old daughter to fill the requirements for Pass the Bread, an informal attempt to bring people together around food. “People here always talk about how it can take two hours to

go to the grocery store,” said event organizer Lynne Garell, who gave each host the choice of cooking a full meal or hosting a potluck. “I think it’s one of the joys of living in a smaller community, and I wouldn’t want to lose it as the population grows.” Dinner hosts were asked to invite eight to 10 people to eat — some who they knew and See Bread, page 7A

Sampling South Routt Restaurants, vendors offer variety of food genres at Oak Creek event


outh Routt standbys and new faces graced the booths at Saturday’s Taste of South Routt at Decker Park in Oak Creek. Chelsea’s Restaurant and Rachel’s Smokin’ BBQ Sauce among STORY BY were those offerBLYTHE TERRELL ing meals, and the new Fun Bucket and the incoming Sumatra’s restaurant also sold food to hungry revelers. Twenty vendors spread out under a blue raspberry snocone sky, selling food and wares to hundreds. The event included about 10 percent more vendors than last year, organizers said. Ken Montgomery, president of the South Routt Economic Development Council, said he expected about 500 people to show up. That’s average for Taste of South Routt, which is in its 12th year. “We had a real good turnout throughout the county with donating prizes for the silent auction and door prizes,” Montgomery said. Rachel Green sold ribs, sausages, brisket, pulled pork and other meat from her

Schools across county see less employee turnover Jack Weinstein



The words “attract and retain” long have been a mantra at Steamboat Springs School Board meetings, as local officials worked to keep teachers and staff in local schools despite obstacles such as high costs of living and housing. The mantra might be paying off — and not just in Steamboat Springs. Fewer staff members are leaving the Steamboat Springs, Hayden and South Routt school districts after the just-ended 2008-09 school year than left the year before. Although employee turnover figures from the districts could suggest that employees are holding on to their jobs because of the economic recession, state and national education experts cite only anecdotal evidence to support that connection. Whatever the reason, the numbers show that more teachers and staff are staying put this year, representing a rebound to stability after increased turnover in 2007-08. In Steamboat, for instance, 24 staff members left the district or retired after the 2008-09 school year, as opposed to 29 following the 2007-08 school year. Those numbers include a sharp decline in teacher turnover — 12 teachers left Steamboat schools after this academic year, as opposed to the 22 who left after 2007-08. The trend is similar in Hayden and South Routt, where each district lost fewer teachers following the 2008-09 school year than the previous year. In Hayden, 15 staff members, See Teachers, page 7A

Iran conducts extensive crackdown

Government seizes hundreds of dissidents in biggest roundup since 1979 Michael Weissenstein THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Iranian government has seized and detained several hundred activists, journalists and students across the nation in one of the most extensive crackdowns on key dissidents since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Even as unprecedented protests broke out on the streets after the June 12 disputed presidential election, the most stinging backlash from authorities has come away from the crowds through roundups and targeted arrests, PAGE DESIGNED BY STEVEN RECKINGER

according to witnesses and human rights organizations. They say plainclothes security agents also have put dozens of the country’s most experienced proreform leaders behind bars. The Iranian government says only that unspecified figures responsible for fomenting unrest have been taken into custody. The arrests have drained the pool of potential leaders of a protest movement that claims President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stole the election by fraud. They also point to the potential for high-profile tri-

als — and serious sentences — before a special judicial forum created to handle cases from the unrest. With the main reformist candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi under constant police surveillance, protests demanding a new vote have withered. Many of those rounded up during demonstrations have been released within days. But most of those detained in raids against potential opposition remain in custody. That has spread fear among Mousavi supporters and left the opposition

movement reeling. “We heard some news about people who are arrested at night, and we are worried if it could happen to us,” a Tehran resident active in the protests wrote in an e-mail Friday, asking for anonymity for fear of government retaliation. The targeted arrests appear to have begun the day after the election. Several of Iran’s bestknown reformist politicians were taken into custody, including the brother and several close allies See Iran, page 8A

USFS: Fireworks banned in forests

Top 10 most-read online stories For the week of June 18 to 24

1.“Volunteers continue search for Rebecca Green” June 18 3,648 pageviews



The U.S. Forest Service is reminding people to leave their fireworks at home if they are visiting the Routt National Forest this Fourth of July holiday. Fireworks are never allowed on national forests. People also are reminded to be responsible with their campfires and to watch out for falling trees — a heightened danger with the large number of dead lodgepole pines from the bark beetle epidemic. There are no fire restrictions as of Saturday, but some campgrounds are closed because of the removal of beetle-killed trees, construction or snow conditions. The Granite and Hahn’s Peak Lake campgrounds in the Hahn’s Peak-Bears Ears Ranger District will be closed during the holiday weekend. In the Parks Ranger District, Aspen, Pines and Teal Lake campgrounds also will be closed. Call the Hahn’s PeakBears Ears Ranger District at 870-2299 or the Parks Ranger District at 723-8204.

“Search for Green postponed,” a story on page 6 of Saturday’s Steamboat Today, reported that Routt County Sheriff Gary Wall decided Friday to postpone a Monday search effort for Rebecca Green, a Steamboat Springs woman who has not been found since falling into Fish Creek on June 13. Wall said he did not make the final decision to postpone Monday’s search until late Saturday afternoon, after continued talks with water experts, local search crews and Summit County Sheriff John Minor.

Chamber urges hospitality

Spurs on Service summer deadline looms; group launches Triple Crown program


teamboat’s Chamber is amping up its hospitality and service programs, though the group’s top official isn’t sure how they’ll measure success. The Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association STORY BY is taking on BLYTHE TERRELL members for its Spurs on Service program. It’s also added a Triple Crown Buddy Program to link business leaders with captains of the softball and baseball teams that come next month. The Chamber isn’t doing its summer surveying this year, which could make it tricky to gauge how well the programs work, Executive Vice President Sandy Evans Hall said. The Chamber started its Spurs on Service program last winter. Although the agency didn’t survey visitors, Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. did. The company reported some of the highest levels of visitor satisfaction among Intrawest resorts, Ski Corp. President Chris Diamond said in January. “Really, the only measurement we have for the winter season is the higher promoter scores and intent to return,” Evans Hall said. Spurs has about 10 members, including the city and Ski Corp. The $150 program includes two visits from a secret shopper, Chamber Membership Director Amy Minotto said. “For the businesses that have enrolled, they have really had a great response getting a candid response from secret shoppers,” she said.

Contractors plan Home Builders Association chapter Couple says membership is good for business, networking Blythe Terrell



Gary and Teri Wall hope to elevate the reputation of Routt County builders. Construction companies sometimes get a bad rap, Gary Wall said, and the two think the formation of a home builders group could help. Along with the Home Builders Association of Northwest Colorado, they’ve scheduled the first meeting of the Home Builders Association of Steamboat Springs and Routt County. Gary Wall, who shares a name with Routt County Sheriff Gary Wall, was an HBA member in Grand Junction. “It was a great benefit to the company,” he said. “It let us network with contractors in town that we wouldn’t have met otherwise.” Gary Wall has been in Steamboat since 1998 and runs Associated Building and Remodeling. He and Teri Wall are making the rounds, soliciting members and sponsors for the new HBA. The group meeting is sched-

uled for July 15 and will include representatives from the Colorado Association of Home Builders and the National Association of Home Builders, said Debbie Rich, executive officer of the Northwest Colorado chapter. The first meeting is free, though the group charges membership dues. Members of Steamboat’s chapter will be members of the state and national groups also. “They promote professionalism, higher standards of quality, advocacy,” Teri Wall said. “You get a voice on a local, state and national level.” According to a flyer from the Walls, the group is “a professional organization committed to the advancement of our membership and the home building industry through political representation, community service

and education.” The HBA has about 225,000 members nationally, Rich said. The Northwest Colorado segment has members in towns including Aspen and Glenwood Springs. Telluride just started a chapter, she said. The Walls still are looking for sponsors and have raised all but $350 of the $2,000 meeting costs, Teri Wall said. The Home Builders Association is open to anyone connected to building. That includes developers, contractors, architects, subcontractors, real-estate agents, designers, home-theater specialists, plumbers, surveyors and others. “If you’re involved with the building trade whatsoever, you’re as important as anybody,” Gary Wall said. The first meeting is open to all, but the group requires people to apply for membership, the Walls said. Members are required to settle disputes with customers reasonably and without litigation, Gary Wall said. Those who don’t could be kicked out. By requiring members to meet standards, the group tells customers that their builder is reputable, the Walls said.


The home under construction in The Range at Wildhorse Meadows is among a few luxury homes being built in Steamboat this summer. Gary and Teri Wall, founders of a local Home Builders Association chapter, say the group will help people in the industry work together.

“Steamboat’s going to know if you’re hiring HBA members, you’re hiring the best,” Teri Wall said. The group needs only 15 people to start a chapter. The Walls said they’ve garnered a great deal of interest and thanks from builders who want an association chapter in the area. Once it gets going, the HBA of Steamboat and Routt probably would meet monthly. The networking the group provides is good for anyone, Teri Wall said.

“I talked to a gentleman who said, ‘I’ve been in the valley an X number of years, I know everybody,’” she said. “But you don’t know the new people.” Gary Wall said membership in the group would be good for business. His wife said it would help people in the industry work together. “It’s going to bring a unity to builders, contractors, suppliers,” Teri Wall said. “It’s going to bring a unity to everybody who’s involved in building in this town.”

School policy needs revision

Anne Lowe



he Steamboat Springs School District should change its inter-district choice policy so that admitted students can attend Steamboat schools for the duration of their K12 career. The existing policy, although clear in its language, punishes families and students while allowing the AT ISSUE school district to have it both Inter-district ways — collecting per-pupil reveschool nue from the state when it works for the schools and then turning enrollment away those same students when it doesn’t. OUR VIEW Of course, the issue is more District’s complicated than just an edit of policy allows the inter-district choice policy, school system which last was revised in 2004. to have it both It also involves class-size ratios, ways — to the classroom space and the interrelation of student enrollment detriment of in all three Routt County public some families. school districts. In short, Steamboat’s interdistrict choice policy states that students who don’t live within the district’s boundaries can apply to attend schools here if they meet certain criteria. Admission requests can be denied if there is a lack of space or teaching staff, for example. Outof-district students have to reapply for admission every year, and “admission granted to one child in a family will not necessarily support enrollment of another child in the family.” There are many reasons families choose to apply for admission into other school districts. In Routt County, families often apply to send their children to Steamboat schools because the parents commute here for work. Such is the case for several of the families whose admission applications were denied this year. In total, the district told the families of five first-graders and two kindergartners that they would not be able to attend school in Steamboat for the 2009-10 academic year. At least one of the students who was turned away attended kindergarten at Soda Creek last year. Some of the families have one child who has been admitted for next year and a second child who hasn’t. We sympathize with the affected families and with the school district. In the district’s defense, the existing policy is quite clear. But that doesn’t mean the policy takes the right approach. Colorado schools are funded on a per-pupil basis, meaning districts receive a certain amount of revenue for every student enrolled by Oct. 1. The more students enrolled, the more money the district receives. There’s no doubt Steamboat’s public school system has enjoyed the funding boost provided by out-of-district families who opt to have their children attend Steamboat schools instead of neighboring Hayden and South Routt schools. And each one of those children who transfers out of their home district similarly has a negative financial impact there. Consistency — for the district and for local families — might be a better approach for the Steamboat Springs School District and its neighboring school systems. Once a student is admitted, allow him or her to attend school in Steamboat for the duration of the K-12 career. It’s certainly not beneficial to young students to have them switch schools and learn new systems so soon after becoming comfortable with their last school. The district also could consider giving preference to admitting the siblings of existing district students. Nevertheless, admitting new children to the school system could bump class sizes, an issue of significant importance to many local families. But in the case of the 2009-10 school year, there are five first-graders seeking admission to a district with seven first-grade classes. Superintendent Shalee Cunningham said the district has enough money in its budget to create an additional class, but it doesn’t have the classroom space in either school. Should we be alarmed that one year after spending $30 million to build a new Soda Creek and a 12-classroom expansion to Strawberry Park Elementary School, we have no additional classroom space? We agreed with the Steamboat Springs School Board in March when it left control of the class size policy to the superintendent. At the time, we said flexibility was needed to create the best overall educational environment for Steamboat students. The same can be applied here. Is the educational impact of adding five more first-graders to seven first-grade classes significant enough to turn away several local families and the tax dollars their children’s enrollment brings to the district? Cunningham, who has the final say on inter-district choice applications, said fall enrollment could change, creating space for the seven turned-away students and making the issue a moot point. But we think it’s unlikely this same issue won’t come up again for other families in future years. Examining and adjusting the policy now is worth the effort.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dam bridge needed I read in our newspaper that the city of Steamboat Springs was going to replace a big temporary bridge with a big permanent bridge on the south end of the core trail. But this news pointed out a lacking on the part of our city in the neighborhood where I live, which is the area of Meadow Drive, Hunters Drive and Bear Drive. The lacking by our city is their refusal to complete the walking trail in our area with a walkway over an earthen dam plus a very small bridge over part of the earthen dam that was purposely cut down, when the dam was built, to allow some of the water in the small lake behind the dam to continue flowing out of the dam and down a stream. Currently, the walking trail north of the earthen dam and leading up to the dam is a concrete walkway like the core trail

in town. But over the earthen dam is just a narrow dirt path. After the break in the dam, the walking trails south of the dam are gravel, but they go a long distance east and then south before hooking up at Bear Drive. These gravel walking trails weaving through various neighborhoods have been there for years and are used by many. I am not complaining so much about the narrow dirt path over the earthen dam or the gravel walking trails thereafter, but I am upset that after all these years, no bridge has been built over the rather small break in the earthen dam to connect these walking trails. People trying to walk from the concrete walking trail and over the dam are blocked by the break in the dam which, if they care to, requires them to climb down the break in the dam and then try to hop or jump from one rock in the stream to another and another until they can, if suc-

cessful, scamper up to the gravel trail. Most people arriving at that point merely look and then turn around to go back the way they came. I have seen people, who dare to make it over the stream, slip and fall into the stream while trying to go from one rock to another, many times standing in the stream up to their ankles or deeper and not very happy. I am aware that money is tight, especially in these current times, but if the city has money to replace a perfectly good temporary bridge with a big permanent bridge, it seems they should have the money to construct a small bridge over the break in the earthen dam in our area. Maybe part of the temporary bridge being removed could be used to bridge the break in the earthen dam in our area to connect the walking trails.

Health care reform and the public option Lynn Abbott


We think of ourselves as a civilized society. We pay taxes that, in turn, pay to ensure all our citizens can — no matter what their income — drink uncontaminated water, educate their children, drive on a network of safe roads, and be protected by police and fire departments when necessary. Why is health care different? Why do Abbott we not accept the responsibility of ensuring that all citizens have basic affordable health care? President Barack Obama, along with millions of Americans, believes that we must. His health care reform plan will guarantee choice, emphasize preventive care, reduce costs and cover pre-existing conditions. None of this will help, however, if it is not affordable for all citizens. This is where the “public option” comes in. The public option is a government-sponsored plan that will offer health care coverage for all at affordable rates because it won’t have to provide generous profits for an insurance company.

And this is where all the hand-wringing begins. Critics of the public option worry that health insurance companies will not be able to compete with a government-sponsored plan. That’s because until now, health insurance companies have been in business to satisfy their shareholders rather than to provide affordable health care to their policyholders. That is a standard business model but it is not a good prescription for covering all Americans with basic affordable health care. As Jonathan Alter wrote in “Newsweek,” insurers would be forced “to redraw their business models and accept lower profits.” If the insurers still want to be in the picture, they will have to make changes. Everyone involved in this discussion must remember that the goal is to provide affordable health care for all Americans. Other critics, most notably U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and columnist George Will, are convinced that government-sponsored health care will not be the high level of care that Americans deserve. They worry about lack of choice of doctors, long lines of people waiting for

surgery, etc. I know Canadians and Britons who are quite happy with their plans. But in any case, if government-sponsored health care is as bad as the critics say it is, it will die a natural death. People and companies who like the health care plans they have can continue to use them; they need not give them up. But for those who, like my daughter and son-in-law, are paying more than $660 a month for a “catastrophic” health plan for a family of five with a $4,000 deductible, the public option sounds really good. They currently never meet their deductible, so on top of that monthly insurance premium, they struggle to pay for each doctor visit, strep throat test, ankle X-ray and every other medical need that an active family with young children incurs. By providing basic coverage at a reasonable price, a public plan would eliminate the need for such catastrophic policies. Other critics say that it would be unacceptable to have a government bureaucrat interfering in decisions that should be made between doctor and patient. This is a non-starter. Health insurance companies and HMOs already are See Abbott, page 5A

Have we become mathematically challenged, or are we just too emotionally overcome? Extract all the sensationalism of politics — who’s right, who’s wrong; what we should do, what we shouldn’t do; what we have done, what we haven’t done; who’s to blame, who’s not to blame. Just ask the basic questions of “What can we do?” and “What can’t we do?” Approaching these questions with principles of math will lead to realistic conclusions. For example: $(debt) + $(borrowing) = $$(liability); and $(spending) + $(borrowing) + $(debt) = $$$(liability) These are the equations we’re currently witnessing. They add up to tremendous liability for our children and grandchildren. Why is this principle so hard to understand? If we continue along this irresponsible path, we cannot possibly expect the outcome to be positive. These equations do not equal more individual freedom and will not translate into a better America for future generations. When the burden of liability is upon the American people, of debts owed to other countries and incredible deficits, the pursuit of individual liberty cannot flourish. British MEP Daniel Hannan, made one of my favorite comments in the past nine months. While addressing Prime Minister Gordon Brown, he said, “You cannot spend your way out of recession or borrow your way out of debt.” He obviously understands simple math. We have become a society of impatience. We want everything now, and many believe we deserve everything now. This perception of entitlement is not what made this country great. Individual responsibility, hard work and risk-taking are the cornerstones of what built this great nation. A current hot topic is that every individual in this country is “entitled” to health care. I suggest we apply a little math before we succumb to emotions and add dollars to the equations. If we start out with a certain amount of dollars for health care and we want to use these dollars for everyone, how do we possibly end up with better (or even comparable) health care for individuals without adding to the liability equation? Principles of math cannot support this concept. One of the following essentially would occur: 1) health care gets rationed; 2) costs get dramatically reduced (perhaps by restricting payments to doctors, nurses and hospitals); 3) expensive procedures and medications are limited or denied; or 4) increase in taxation. On the positive side, there are potential ways to streamline health care processes, devise incentives for personal health responsibility and increase competition to reduce cost. They all are excellent areas See Lowe, page 5A

(Cycling) is a great way to combine business and pleasure. I can’t say I’ve often enjoyed driving to work, but a spin on the bike always seems to brighten the day. Taking a ride after work back home can allow one to leave the day’s concerns behind. When you notice the abundance of 20-, 30-, even 50-year-old bikes around town you realize how long they last and how cheap bicycling can be. These aren’t pampered collector’s items either but tools that are run day in and day out through all kinds of weather. That’s the best kind of resource-use: Build things to last, and keep ’em working. — Paul Brabenec

that we can suspend the laws of supply and demand. The reality is, lots and lots of people want to live in paradise. That growth in demand isn’t going away. So if you constrain supply by restricting development, prices will go up and up and up. Maybe as a community, we’re fine with that.

to explore because they have potential to subtract from the liability equation without decreasing quality of care. However, do we truly want health care to get rationed or limited to us because of its cost? Shall we cover everyone at the expense of decreased quality for most? Conversely, adding to

the tax burden of the producers in this country (businesses and working individuals) will only add to the liability. This is not the option we can pursue without “breaking the bank,” especially while the economy is struggling, unemployment rates are increasing and deficit spending is out of control. Let’s not forget the lessons we should have learned.

interfering in such decisions and sometimes even dictating procedures to doctors. Many of their employees are hired specifically to find ways to deny claims.

Martin (Marty) Levy, of Cambria, Calif., died June 14, 2009. He was 75. Marty was born in New York City on Levy April 12, 1934, to Joseph and Betty Levy, immigrants who came to America seeking a better life. Marty and his sister were raised with a strong work ethic and helped with the family business in the Bronx. Marty formed lifelong bonds with his New York neighbors and schoolmates, mostly firstgeneration Americans. He graduated from Dewitt Clinton High School. He was a natural athlete and came to be known as “the Duke” of the schoolyard as he shed his wool overcoat and played pick-up basketball in leather loafers. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War and was honorably discharged in 1958. He then married Brenda Grandon, with whom he had three children. Together with his father and sister, he opened a bowling center. In the ’60s, business was booming as Americans enjoyed bowling as a social pastime. With this new prosperity, he bought his first home, a colonial in Westchester County, New York. Shortly thereafter, he bought a rustic cabin in the Catskill Mountains and started to ski. Most winter weekends were spent with his family on the slopes enjoying all of the thrills that only skiing could bring. After attending a conference in California, he purchased a bowling alley in Palm Springs, Calif., in 1978. Together with his family, Marty set out to conquer the West. He expanded the business to include a state-of-theart racquetball and fitness center, which soon began to struggle. In 1983, Marty visited his daughter Jan in Steamboat Springs, where he relocated the following year. During the next 15 years, he reinvented himself. He skied on powder days and operated the Inferno at night. It was the place to go après ski; with a roulette


wheel that determined the price of shots and a basketball scoreboard whose buzzer signaled the end of each round! Together with Jan and Gary Lash, he created a legendary bar in Steamboat. He built a new life in Colorado, marrying Jill Clow, building a log home and succeeding once again in business. Throughout his life, Marty loved to travel. He went as far as Israel, Australia, Thailand and China. He soaked up the sun on the beaches of Greece and Jamaica. Then, in his later years, he celebrated his birthdays with family and friends in Hawaii and Tuscany. Although his health failed him many times, he had the fortitude to recover. He survived the amputation of both legs, and learned to walk, drive and enjoy life to its fullest again. He had an inner strength that saw him through adverse circumstances. On June 8, 2009, a massive stroke, along with a heart attack, assaulted his compromised body. His will to survive kept him alive for almost a week, but on the night of June 14, 2009, he passed away. Whenever anyone asked, he always said he “had a good run.” He did live his life to the fullest. He will always be remembered as a savvy entrepreneur who had his own style and as a loyal friend who was always there for those he cared about. Marty is survived by his three children: David Levy and his wife, Suzanne, of Eastchester, N.Y.; Jan Levy, of Steamboat; Karen Riggio and her husband, Dominick, of Steamboat; his three grandchildren: Marisa, Sophia and Joseph Levy, of Eastchester, N.Y.; nephew Kenneth Bloom, of Shanghai, China; niece Randy Bloom, of New York City; nephew Allan Bloom, of Coral Springs, Fla.; and sister Ruth Gage, of Boynton Beach, Fla. He leaves behind many dear friends and family members as he reunites with his parents and past friends forevermore. A memorial service is at 3 p.m. today at Staxx Restaurant at Haymaker Golf Course.

Dwight C. Pomeroy, 66, of Craig, passed away June 2, 2009. Dwight was born Oct. 15, 1942, at home in Pomeroy Lingle, Wyo., the youngest of five children to Melvin and Louise (Harrington) Pomeroy. His family moved to Torrington, Wyo., where he attended school and graduated from Torrington High School in 1962. In Dwight’s first marriage, he had two daughters, Brenda and Wendy. He married Jackie Mann on April 6, 1974, and acquired a son, Damon. His first employment was while in high school as junior high school and high school janitor. After graduating, he went to work for Ford Motor Co. in Lusk, Wyo., and Craig. In 1969, Dwight went to work for Mountain States Company in the irrigation and household water pump installation business. He had to retire in December 2008 because of his health. Customer service was always his first priority. Dwight’s interests included his family, the outdoors, hunting, fishing, caring for his yard, vegetable garden and flowers, watching and listening to the birds, building bird houses and keeping the feeders full. His annual vacation for many

years was rifle elk hunting. He went to auctions looking for more antiques, arrowheads or good stuff he might need. His antique collection is from the homesteading era. Dwight enjoyed watching old western TV shows and movies many times over and preferred country western music, as well as reading outdoor magazines and The Fence Post. Dwight was an avid Broncos fan, watching every possible game. Dwight is survived by his wife, Jackie Pomeroy, of Craig; daughters Wendy and Brenda (Tony) Siegfried, of Columbus, Mont.; son Damon (April) Hatfield, of Craig; grandchildren Meghan Mills and Katelyn Siegfried, of Columbus, Mont., Rodney Hatfield, of Craig; greatgrandchild Taylor Mills, of Columbus, Mont.; sister Beverly (Pete) Gibbs, of Yoder, Wyo.; brother Norman Pomeroy, of Lusk, Wyo.; sister-in-law Evelyn Pomeroy, of Craig; and numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; sister Carol Groskopf; brother Wayne Pomeroy; and nephews Randy Gibbs and Mark Groskopf. Dwight will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. Services were held at the Craig Christian Church on June 8, 2009, and interment followed in the Craig Cemetery in Craig.

Organizer looks at dinners as bridge-building exercise Bread continued from 1A some who they didn’t. Garell prepared a couple of dinner conversation prompt questions for each party, and the hosts took it from there. At Barnett’s, the dinner conversation touched on how everyone around the table ended up in Steamboat. Topics covered where people had been and still wanted to go, how the town has changed and stayed the same in the past 40 years, how Michael Jackson became so famous and how to make a margarita with a blender powered by a weed whacker engine. When Garell first started pushing the idea for Pass the Bread, she got mixed reactions. “I think one of the things

that really caught my attention dinners are designed to bring was that we would tell the story people outside of their comfortof what we were planning to do able social circles, Garell said. “I’ve come to think of it in and where this came from, and some people would immediately two ways.

poor economy. “It does appear there are fewer retirements and fewer people quitting their jobs,” said Deborah Fallin, a spokeswoman with the Colorado Education Association. But Fallin cautioned that her opinion was anecdotal and derived after speaking with colleagues at CEA. She said numbers for teachers and staff who left or retired from Colorado school districts after the 2008-09 school year do not exist. Numbers at the national level

including seven teachers, left the district or retired after the 200708 school year versus nine staff members, including six teachers, after this past school year. In Soroco, 17 staff members, including six teachers, left the district two years ago versus six staff, including two teachers, last year. Ann Keating is a board member with the Steamboat Springs Education Association, which represents teachers and other district staff members. She said she didn’t know whether there was a correlation between the district’s lower attrition and the economy. But she has noticed there are fewer job openings, especially at Steamboat Springs Middle School where she teaches the basic life training class. “This is the first year I can remember not having six or seven (vacancies on staff),” she said. “It’s less than that this year.” She said people may be staying because the district represents stable employment “at this point in the economy.” But at the state and national levels, numbers aren’t available nor have surveys been conducted to draw a conclusion between lower teacher attrition and a

Although fewer teachers and staff members have left the Steamboat Springs School District, applications for the few available openings have increased, said Human Resources Director Ann Muhme. “We have seen a marked increase in the number of applicants for clerical positions,” she said in an e-mail. “We have not noticed much change in the other classified positions. The number of applicants for licensed positions is up some from past years but not as much as we have seen in clerical positions.”

income bracket who’s in the their mid-50s is going to have a pretty defined social network,” Garell said. The idea isn’t to give people more friends, she said. It’s more to cement a small-town spirit. “I see this as a way for people to sort of expand their horizons — not feel like they have to go make friends with everybody, but maybe we see more familiar faces on the street after 10 years of having Pass the Bread happen,” Garell said. Depending on reaction, Pass the Bread likely will happen about twice a year, Garell said, with the next dinner potentially planned for sometime after the holiday season.

Taste continued from 1A tent. Green brought enough for about 150 people, and she was running low by about 3:30 p.m. “It’s a very good day,” she said. “A very, very good day.” She’s been making sauce since 1989 and has participated in the Taste of South Routt for about a decade. Green served the crowds meat from her smoker, which Phippsburg resident Lynn Whaley made for her out of an old mine light. “He made that for me special,” Green said. “I’m not sure I ever paid him all the money. I just let him eat free.” Steamboat Springs residents Mary and Elizabeth Mayer stood enjoying the live music and drinks. The mother and daughter said they come each year and typically head for Rachel’s. Elizabeth Mayer used to live in Oak Creek and uses the event as a chance to return and hang out. It’s worth the drive because of the “small-town atmosphere, music and food,” Mary Mayer said. Near Green’s tent, folks sam-

pled gulai ayan, or Indonesian chicken curry. Lia Blarecoats sold the curry, spring rolls and soto beef to promote her incoming restaurant, Sumatra’s. She bought Judy’s Country Donuts and Bakery a few months ago, and Sumatra’s will be there. Blarecoats, who is from Indonesia, plans to sell doughnuts in the morning and Asian food at night. She won’t have Chinese food but will offer pho, pad Thai and other dishes. She was pleased with the response to her food. “They love it because it’s actually spicy,” Blarecoats said. She said she also was glad to have an event to promote Sumatra’s. “I love to cook, so I’m really kind of ready to get some food to people here,” Blarecoats said. Across the grass, organizer Julie Hoff ran the silent auction and the door prizes. She said she was happy with the perfect weather and the turnout. The event is popular partly because it’s ingrained in the South Routt community, Hoff said. “People come because it’s what you do,” she said.

Iran continued from 1A of former President Mohammad Khatami. Since then, at least 230 more students, professors, journalists and reformists have been arrested, according to the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran. At least 29 are known to have been released, the New York-based organization said in a list released Wednesday, although it acknowledged that the num-

bers were constantly changing. The crackdown appears to have grown bolder as the government escalated its use of force on the streets. Security agents arrested nearly the entire staff of Mousavi’s newspaper, The Green Word, Monday night, seizing 25 people in a raid on its offices, according to a statement on Mousavi’s Web site. Four or five who were out of the office during the raid remain free, according to the paper.

On Thursday, authorities arrested 70 reformist university professors after they met with Mousavi, his Web site said. At least 66 were later freed, said Hadi Ghaemi, spokesman for the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran. Among the most prominent reformists detained was Ebrahim Yazdi, 78, who was a key aide of the Islamic Republic’s founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, and served as foreign minister

after the 1979 revolution. Yazdi was hospitalized with a bladder problem when agents walked into his room June 17, had his intravenous tubes disconnected and took him to Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison. “They did not show any judicial or legal papers, nothing,” Yazdi said by telephone from Tehran. “Even in prison, they didn’t interrogate me. Nobody came to tell me why they were arresting me.”

Renting vs. ownership

Tom Ross


Stonewood home sells for $2 million last week The market cooled a little last week, from June 19 to 25, with 10 real property sales netting $5.6 million. There also were six timeshare sales netting $718,290. The real property sales included a foreclosure in Hayden for $78,000. The high-selling property for the week was a 4-bedroom townhome in Stonewood at Eagleridge that went for $1.995 million.

Tour of new listings includes 34 properties Susana Field, of Buyer’s Resource Real Estate, reports that the June 23 tour of new listings included 34 properties of which only seven were repeats. That’s many more properties than any one Realtor could hope to visit in a single morning. Total listings were 2,277 of which 507 were single-family homes.

Logan Avenue home leads week’s listings Mitch Clementson’s “fixerupper” listing on Logan Avenue leads all property listings in views this week on Wayne Ranieri’s dome-shaped home in Steamboat II continues to attract a lot of looks, finishing second this week after leading the way last week.

Sales jump-start week with $1M townhome There were a few sales Monday and Tuesday, the most significant being the sale of a townhome at Cimarron at Steamboat for $1.081 million. Also sold was a Sierra View condominium, a Mustang Run condo and a Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel timeshare.

Market comes back to renters


ealtors here are intent on convincing would-be homebuyers that timing the bottom of the market is a risky business that could backfire on them. “What are buyers doing? They’re waiting,” Pam Vanatta said STORY BY during a panel TOM ROSS discussion this week. “Buyers create the bottom (of the market). But if you wait, you’ll miss the bottom. People who wait will be unlucky.” Vanatta is the broker/coowner of Prudential Steamboat Realty. Her company partnered with Yampa Valley Bank and Steamboat law firm Sharp, Steinke, Sherman and Engle, to host “A Turn of Events. Buying in Today’s Market.” She noted that the event was held on a gorgeous late June afternoon. But it may have been more than prime bicycling weather and a sign of the times that there appeared to be notably more Realtors and bankers in attendance than prospective buyers. Timing the bottom of the market is an exercise made less certain by the sheer number of Routt County listings waiting to be absorbed and the growing number of foreclosure filings. Attorney Melinda Sherman said the number of foreclosure filings filed to date with the public trustee’s office has roughly doubled, when compared to the number on the corresponding date in 2008. “The number of listings right now is overwhelming,” Vanatta said, “and property values vary inversely.”


Susana Field, of Buyer’s Resource Real Estate, said Thursday there were 2,277 properties listed on the Steamboat Springs Multiple Listing Service of which 507 were single-family homes, including a few in Craig. A sellers’ market can be defined by the twin circumstances of low inventory and high demand, meaning more buyers, Vanatta said. Conversely, a relative scarcity of buyers with burgeoning inventory, which is the case now, can define a buyers’ market. Prudential’s Beth Bishop thinks one bright side of the current real estate slump is the re-opening of the window of affordability for working professionals. If you can come up with a down payment, she asked,

why wouldn’t you leverage that money to build a nest egg rather than renting and paying the mortgage for a landlord? “Teachers and nurses now can afford to buy a home and live here,” Bishop said. She used two examples of actual real estate listings to illustrate her point. The first is an older twobedroom Deer Creek condo on Chinook Lane that is listed at $289,000. The second is a new three-bedroom, three-bath Aspens at Walton Creek townhome adjacent to Deer Creek. It’s listed for $400,000. In the case of the Deer Creek condo, Bishop worked with down payments ranging from a zero-down USDA loan to 20 percent down on a conventional 30-year mortgage. She described how a buyer could achieve monthly

mortgage payments — minus escrow, which includes insurance and property taxes — ranging from $1,387 to $1,734 with the USDA loan. In the case of the Aspens townhome, the same parameters would produce mortgage payments ranging from $1,760

to $2,400. She urged renters whose monthly rental payments are the same as, or not much lower than, those numbers to consider leveraging their down payments to build equity rather See Homes, page 2B

Fed’s confidence could portend more costly home loans


Developers of one of the city’s tallest new skyscrapers said Friday they had lined up a nearly $1.3 billion loan, sealing what experts called one of the biggest real estate financing deals since the economic crisis began last fall. The refinancing package for the Bank of America tower drew congratulations from Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Gov. David Paterson.


A panel of Realtors, a banker and an attorney, including Charlie Dresen, from right, Beth Bishop, Melinda Sherman, Kathryn Pedersen and Pam Vanatta, spoke at a seminar for homebuyers Wednesday afternoon at the Steamboat Springs Community Center.

Tom Ross



When the nation’s central bank sent strong signals this week that the recession has turned the corner, mortgage lenders in Steamboat looked for the meaning behind the news release. Kathryn Pedersen, vice president of mortgage lending at Yampa Valley Bank, took note of the interpretation made by David Kelly, chief marketing

strategist for J.P. Morgan Chase. What did she hear? “Do it now,” lock in a mortgage at current rates, Pedersen told an audience during a panel discussion Wednesday at the Steamboat Springs Community Center. “The Fed is telling us that long-term rates will be higher.” And on Thursday, the Associated Press reported the average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage was 5.42 percent, up from 5.38 percent a week ago. Pedersen said rates have fluctuated this month, jumping up,

then retreating before advancing again this week. The AP reported Wednesday that the Federal Reserve had issued a statement that amounted to a vote of confidence in the economy, saying it would invoke no new measures to combat the ongoing recession. Although it remains severe, the Fed has signaled that the recession’s grip may be easing. If an economic recovery is near, many analysts conclude that inflation cannot be far behind.

“Just mention the ‘I’ word, and rates tick up by a quarter percent,” Pedersen said. Lenders quickly respond to any inflationary trend to ensure that the return on their money conserves its buying power, she explained. Pedersen told her Steamboat audience that the Fed has promised to purchase $1.25 trillion in mortgage bonds in an effort to keep mortgage rates low. To this date, the Fed has committed almost half that amount. Both home buyers and the stock

market would like to see the Fed spend more of that money. But analysts say the Fed is balancing its need to stimulate the economic recovery with the risk of triggering inflation. Mortgage rates declined to a record low of 4.78 percent earlier this year, the AP reported. But they bounced as high as 5.6 percent earlier in June after yields on long-term government debt, which are closely tied to mortgage rates climbed. See Loans, page 2B

Next generation of farmers gets trained to work land Bruce Henderson



As squash and okra bask on a sunny slope outside town, another crop also is taking root: budding farmers. Cabarrus County’s answer to consumers clamoring for locally grown foods — a demand under-

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


For a $100 yearly fee, participants get their own half-acre to work, use of a tractor and other equipment. Those who stick it out for three to five years should be ready to make it on their own and, like rotating crops, will be replaced by a new class. “This is going to test them on whether they want to do this for a living,” says Brad Hinckley, a

10-year organic farmer who is mentoring the greenhorns. Cabarrus is part of a movement to increase the foods produced in the communities that eat them. Locally grown food, the thinking goes, is healthier for consumers and local economies. It saves energy. Most other See Farming, page 14B

cut by aging growers — is to teach a new generation how to work the land. The Elma C. Lomax Incubator Farm Park, which opened this year, works like most programs for beginning entrepreneurs. Except that, besides class work, its students learn to drive a tractor, lay out straight rows and combat produce-gnawing bugs.

than making their landlord’s mortgage payments. Disregard the unprecedented 35 to 40 percent growth in 2006-07 and refocus on the historic average of about 5 percent growth in property values, Bishop said. Put down $40,000 on a $200,000 home, she said, and within three years, five percent annual appreciation will equate to $31,525, representing a 79 percent return, she added. Of course, the past two years have taught Steamboat homeowners how the nest egg represented by their home equity can go down as well as up. “You have to invest for the long term,” Bishop said. “People still want to move to Steamboat, and this market will come back.” – To reach Tom Ross, call 871-4205 or e-mail

Local banker P.J. Wharton sits in on a seminar for homebuyers Wednesday afternoon.


Average rates fluctuate Loans continued from 1B Realtor Pam Vanatta, of Prudential Steamboat Realty, told Pedersen’s audience that even though interest rates are nudging upward, they still are lower than most periods during the past 25 years. She had just obtained her real estate license in October 1987 when the stock market dropped precipitously, a day that became known as Black Monday. That economic crisis was followed by interest rates greater than 11 percent. “I can remember people celebrating when interest rates finally dropped below 10 percent,” Vanatta said. But then, 11 percent sounds attractive compared to July 1984 when the average monthly rate on a 30-year fixed loan was 14.75 percent.

Jewel-box homes are built smaller, smarter Jean Patteson



They’ve been dubbed “jewelbox houses” — small homes designed with top-quality materials, upscale detailing and custom built-ins. Tailored to the owners’ way of life, smaller homes suit a variety of demographic groups, including newlyweds, young professionals, empty-nesters and retirees — the last two a fast-growing segment of the population. The current recession, the downturn in the housing market and the emphasis on energy-efficiency all are playing into the jewel-box trend — and are making it increasingly difficult for homeowners to unload “starter castles,” says architect Sarah Susanka, author of “The Not So Big House.” For the past two decades, dream homes have assumed McMansion proportions, says Stephen Gidus, co-owner of PSG Construction in Orlando, Fla. Now, “downsizing” is the new watchword. “Homeowners are taking that portion of their budget that would have been used for larger living spaces, and using it for better details in smaller spaces,” Gidus says. There are signs the housing industry is heeding this

How to live large in small spaces Here is a sampling of books about smaller-but-better home design. ■ “Small Space Living,” by Christine Brun (Schiffer Publishing, $34.99). Brun, an interior designer and author of the syndicated newspaper column Small Spaces, takes a comprehensive look at dual-use space, flexible furnishings and built-ins. ■ “Not So Big Remodeling,” by Sarah Susanka and Marc Vassallo (Taunton Press, $23). The subtitle says it all: “Tailoring your home for the way you really live.” ■ “The Not So Big House,” by Sarah Susanka (Taunton Press, $32). A decade ago, architect Sara Susanka helped spark the whole downsizing movement. ■ “Small Spaces,” by Rebecca Tanqueray (Ryland Peters & Small, $14.95). The book is tiny, but it’s packed with practical, inexpensive suggestions, all colorfully illustrated, for making the most of cramped quarters.

trend toward jewel-box homes. Data collected by the National Association of Home Builders in 2008 indicates the average size of a new home in the United States is leveling off at just under 2,500 square feet. One such jewel-box home belongs to Clifford and Krista Goeller, owners of Badger Welding in Orlando. Designed by Lucia Custom Home Designers and built by PSG Construction, the exterior fea-

tures the Craftsman styling popular in the early 20th century, complete with a recessed porch, tapered-box columns and fishscale siding. The interior has a contemporary open floor plan,

but is detailed with traditional Craftsman elements such as wood floors with inlaid tile, an oak staircase and a built-in, furniture-grade entertainment center surrounding the fireplace.

The 2,300-square-foot home “suits our lifestyle and our taste,” says Krista Goeller, a transplant from Wisconsin. “Florida houses seem so big and cool and painted. We like

the warmth and richness of stained wood. We wanted a cozy house, a house that looks as if it belongs among big old oak trees with moss hanging down.” Huge houses with hotelscale foyers, formal dining and living rooms, and vast master suites with spa-style bathrooms are out of sync with the informal way Americans live today, Susanka says. In most homes, the kitchen is the heart, the place where family and friends gather. Americans take quick showers, they don’t luxuriate in soaking tubs. So why not invest in areas we regularly use, and eliminate those that are mostly for show? Not surprisingly, the homefurnishings industry is attuned to the downsizing trend, says Jackie Hirschhaut, vice president/marketing at the American Home Furnishings Alliance. Increasingly, manufacturers are making furniture that is smaller and more multipurpose: love seats instead of sofas, expandable dining tables, homeoffice armoires with fold-down work stations, and compact corner units for big-screen TVs.

North Carolina losing its farms Farming continued from 2B food on our plate has traveled an average of 1,200 miles. It also preserves open space. North Carolina leads the nation in its loss of farms. “Consumer demand has exploded in the past five years. People are looking at where their food is coming from,” says Nancy Creamer, director of the Center for Environmental Farming Systems at North Carolina State University. The center is promoting a “farm to fork” local-foods initiative. You’re part of that surge when you queue up for fresh tomatoes at one of the region’s bustling farmers markets or knife into pasture-raised pork at a local restaurant. But as the beginners at the Lomax park are learning, growing food is still about sweat, calluses and leaps of faith. “By 2010, farming will make up the majority of my household income. It has to,” says Aaron Newton, 34, sitting in the shade of a pole barn. A laid-off land planner with two young daughters, he and his wife are cobbling together a living as his first crops grow. Newton, the 34-year-old Hinckley and a third Lomax farmer, Eric Williamson, have already started a business, Cold Water Creek Farms. They sold memberships to as many people as they could supply, about 60 households. For $300 to $500, each family will get a box of fresh produce for 20 weeks. Newton says he recently turned away six more prospective customers, and chefs are calling. “If I could grow four times what we could produce out here, I could sell it all,” he says.

Lobeck is loving the ride

Union chief tainted by steroid era

Steamboat mountain biker competes in Tour Divide Joel Reichenberger PILOT & TODAY STAFF

Larry Stone




It’s a familiar story in this jaded age of baseball: Superstar performer puts up staggering statistics, only to have his legacy tainted in the waning days of his career by the specter of steroids. The superstar in this case happens to be Donald Fehr, the long-time Stone executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, who this week announced his pending retirement. Thus ends, with a whimper rather than a bang, one of the most productive careers in the history of organized labor. Faced in 1983 with the daunting task of following legendary union founder Marvin Miller — technically, Fehr followed the brief tenure of Kenneth Moffett, who was the MLBPA’s Phil Bengston to Miller’s Vince Lombardi; but it was the looming presence of Miller that always stood as his standard — Fehr lived up to that task. Which is to say, he continued Miller’s habit of scoring lopsided victories against the owners at every turn. Strikes. Lockouts. Collusion. Contraction. No matter the issue, the players invariably ended up with more power and more money. Then, in the past decade, Fehr showed that he could be conciliatory, too. He and Bud Selig worked hard to find enough common ground to forge labor peace through the past decade and a half. The sport is far the better for it. If there were a labor leader Hall of Fame, Fehr was headed to a first-ballot, slam-dunk election. But now, as with so many members of his constituency, steroids have reared their ugly headlines and caused his career to be re-evaluated in a new light. Under Fehr’s watch — while the average salary was increasing from $289,000 to $3.3 million — performanceenhancing drugs have become the scourge of baseball, undermining credibility, ruining careers, and putting MLB in its sad current state where every statistical upturn (or downturn) is viewed with suspicion. Yes, it happened under commissioner Selig’s watch, too, and he warrants a hefty slice of the blame. Give a heapin’ helpin’ to those of us in the media who waited too long to ask the hard questions about those rippling muscles and staggering numbers. And, of course, reserve the largest measure of scorn for the players themselves, who ultimately made the decision to ingest and inject. But Fehr, in viewing drug testing as largely a privacy issue, seemingly failed to grasp until too late that it also was a health issue and a reputation issue. And that the rank-andfile were eager, if not desperate, for anti-steroids standards that would reduce their temptation to indulge in performanceenhancing drugs merely to keep up with everyone else. By some accounts, it was the players themselves who rose up to demand that the union accept a strengthened Joint Drug Agreement in the 2002 Basic Agreement, which ushered in the testing era. The testing standards have been gradually improved — grudgingly, to be sure, usually in reaction to the latest scandal — to the point they no longer are derided by steroids experts.

Erik Lobeck took a hug and kiss and soaked up what little time he could with his wife, Jessica. They spent a few minutes together at Orange Peel, had lunch in downtown Steamboat Springs, and that was that. He was off again, pedaling his mountain bike JOEL REICHENBERGER/STAFF Steamboat Springs resident Erik Lobeck, front left, rides with friends who came down the trail in one of the most out to help him into Steamboat Springs on Wednesday.

And on Wednesday, for a few short minutes, it led Lobeck to his pregnant wife. “It was great to get to see him,” Jessica Lobeck said. “It was exciting. He looked good and healthy and happy, so it was great.” Lobeck’s training for the Tour Divide kicked off in the heart of the Steamboat winter, but it was his ambition for the race, built up throughout years, that helped him to the starting line. To train for the nearly 2,800-

mile adventure, he woke up early to get in conditioning workouts. He rode up the service roads at the snowy Steamboat Ski Area to the gondola. He rode all across the Colorado, turning short trips into long weekends on the road. He rode to Rangely and back, a 260-mile round trip, and to Lyons and back, a 300-miler that took him through Rocky Mountain National Park. “But you can never do enough for this,” he said shortly after arriving in Steamboat, about the See Tour, page 3C

As a tyke growing up in Marietta, Ga., Melanie Oudin would watch Venus and Serena Williams on TV and tell anyone who would listen that she was going to play at Wimbledon, too, one day. Who knew she’d be right? NEXT ROUND: And do so well, so Early Rounds quickly? Making her 11 a.m. to Wimbledon debut 2 p.m. at age 17 after gettoday ting through qualon NBC ifying, the 124thranked Oudin joined the Williams sisters in the fourth round at the All England Club by beating former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic, 6-7 (8), 7-5, 6-2, on Saturday in the most startling result of the tournament’s opening week. “Was just thinking that she was any other player, and this was any other match, and I was at any other tournament — you know, not, like, on the biggest stage, at Wimbledon, playing my first top10 player,” Oudin said. “I mean, I go into every match the exact same, you know, like, no matter who I play. It’s not, like, ‘Oh, my gosh, I’m playing the No. 1 player in the world.”’ Another U.S. qualifier, 133rdranked Jesse Levine, of Boca Raton, Fla., couldn’t extend his run in the men’s tournament, losing to No. 19 Stanislas Wawrinka, 5-7, 7-5, 6-3, 6-3. That leaves No. 6 Andy Roddick as the last American man in the tournament. The only time Oudin really lost her way was when her match ended, and it was time to leave Court 3, a patch of grass known as “The Graveyard of Champions,” because of the long list of stars upset there. She wasn’t quite sure where to go and asked someone to direct her toward the exit. Not all that surprising, when you consider that a year ago, Oudin entered the junior event at Wimbledon — seeded No. 1 among the girls — and failed to make it out of the second round, losing, 6-1, 6-3, to eventual champion Laura Robson, of Britain. Yet, there Oudin was Saturday, outlasting 2008 U.S. Open runnerup Jankovic for nearly 3 hours, then calling Mom and Dad back home to share in the revelry. “My emotions are all over the place,” Oudin’s father, John, said in a telephone interview. “When I think about watching Bjorn Borg and Boris Becker in their starched whites at Wimbledon, I just can’t believe Melanie is there. It’s hardly any words other than, ‘Wow!’”

Steamboat Pilot & Today • Sunday, June 28, 2009

Long-drive competitions broken down into local, regional and national events 245 pounds and Popeye-esque forearms — the local accountant has everything it takes to make it on the national longdrive scene. It also helps that his swing speed average is right at about 142 miles per hour. “I would go to the driving range 20 or 25 times a year,” Winter said. “Somebody said, “You should do this,” because they knew my golf game sucked but knew how I could hit it. I started getting serious towards the end of last year.” That’s when Winter — who has lived in Steamboat for four years — started looking at local qualifying events. Last season, he went to one in Colorado Springs and another in Red Lodge, Mont.

The long-drive competitions are broken down into local, regional and national events. To get through the local portion, golfers have to be in the top 10 percent of entrants. If a golfer wins his region, they get to go to Mesquite, Nev., for the RE/MAX World Long Drive Competition. In Colorado Springs and Red Lodge, Winter was just one spot out of qualifying for a regional spot. Considering he was playing with a driver he just bought, right off the shelf, Winter said he’s starting to get more serious about the competitions. At Red Lodge, his longest recorded drive was 357 yards. Golfers have to hit their drives inside a 40-yard-wide fairway to get recorded “I hit one at Red Lodge 401

yards that was two feet out of bounds,” Winter said. “You just got to get them inbounds. That 40 yards gets pretty narrow.” But now that Winter realizes he has a chance to actually compete, he’s become much more serious. Realizing that last year’s World Long Drive Champion Jamie Sadlowski won with a 418-yard drive, Winter has some new goals in mind. He started researching what types of drivers he’d need to be competitive. With the help of Golf Etc., Winter found what he needed. He now has a driver with a 50-inch shaft and a five-degree head. He goes to the range several times a week and plans on entering several local competitions, the first of which is Aug.

8 in Denver. “With distance, the main thing is club head speed, and that’s mostly influenced by strength,” said Scott Matthews, the first assistant pro at Haymaker, who has been working with Winter on his swing. “He’s a big, strong kid. Second, he’s not afraid to swing at the ball. He’s able to center the ball up.” Winter, who enjoys the game but admits he’s not very good, is pretty much self-taught. When he was younger, he’d go to the range late at night to get golf balls, then go home and hit them out into the fields. When it was time to work on the farm, he’d go back out and pick them up. He said he’s starting to get more into the game — he normally shoots in the high 90s

Lobeck has encountered 8 grizzly bears on the ride halfway point of the trek. “It’s not possible to do enough.” Lobeck launched into that stiff training regimen only weeks after learning his wife was pregnant. She said she was never worried about letting him tackle his dream. “He’s never had a break,” she said. “He finished graduate school last year, then went right into working. I miss him, but I have a lot of family and friends here keeping me busy.” For his part, Lobeck said the trip has been worth the sacrifice. It’s been everything he hoped for, he said, though perhaps a bit more difficult. “I’ve had a lot of good moments,” he said. “There were a lot of really great dirt downhills in Montana. You pretty much compress eight good mountain bike rides into every day on this trip.” The trip hasn’t been without its problems, though. Lobeck said he’s seen eight grizzly bears and even had to wait once as a family of the lumbering beasts took their time crossing the trail in front of him. “I’ve only had one down day so far,” he said. “Riding out of

Rawlins (Wyo.) I didn’t have enough food in me, so I crashed a little body-wise.” He said seeing his wife in the middle of the trip was a big boost, but he couldn’t even fully appreciate it. The Tour Divide is a selfsupported race, meaning riders can’t eat or take advantage of anything they don’t carry with them or purchase themselves. He swung by the post office to pick up a package of new clothes he had sent to himself, but when his wife offered him a few pieces of fruit, he had to pass. “I can’t take that from you,” he announced in mock outrage. “Are you trying to get me disqualified so you can have your husband back?” She insisted she wasn’t and that for now at least, she couldn’t be happier that her husband is midway through the ride of a lifetime. “In a twisted way, it’s been really fun,” Erik Lobeck said. “I’m glad I got the opportunity to do this because it’s something I won’t ever forget. This is a oneshot deal. Some riders do it more often, but with a kid on the way, this is a one-time deal for me.” — To reach Joel Reichenberger, call 871-4253 or e-mail

Every golfer wants to hit the ball farther. Unfortunately, there aren’t any quick fixes. Scott Matthews, the first assistant pro at Haymaker Golf Course, and Chris Nachtweih, the pro at Catamount Ranch & Club, both agreed that hitting the ball longer is all part of a process. The three biggest things, they said, are getting the swing arc bigger, increasing club head speed and hitting the ball square. Although getting fitted for the right equipment, especially a driver, can help with distance, getting those three things in line are what will make golfers the envy of their foursomes.

— but is really focusing on the long-drive contest. “My short-term goal is, I want to qualify for a regional event and see that atmosphere,” said Winter, who now averages about 375 yards a drive. “I want to make it to regionals. I’d love to make it to

Nachtweih said strengthening the core and stretching are two key elements. Despite golf and fitness seeming weird in the same sentence, Nachtweih said it’s an integral part. “That’s the reason you see more and more guys looking like Tiger (Woods),” he said. “Now, there are more guys with six packs than beer bellies.” Hitting the ball squarely might be the most important part, however. That, like so many other things in golf, simply comes with repetition after repetition. Adding distance certainly is a possibility, but it takes work, Matthews and Nachtweih said.

Mesquite. If I really get after it, Mesquite isn’t out of the question. Practicing four or five times a week, I really don’t think competing at that level is out of reach.” — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail

Dover striving for chance at a college scholarship offer Rinn Chiropractic Center Dover continued from 1C have been throwing routes in the back yard. It really hit me when I got back surgery that I needed to get stuff together. I have something a lot of people don’t have, so I don’t want to waste it.” The first-team All-State kickreturner has been a constant in the weight room this spring. He originally fractured his L2 vertebrae in eighth grade. Last season, he played the first four games feeling healthy. But by the final regular season game, against Glenwood Springs, Dover was in bad shape. He barely could stand on his own, and the pain was unbearable. A

CAT scan revealed the injury, and Dover went in for surgery. He spent four nights in the hospital and the first month after that in bed. After two months, he started doing core workouts and pushups. Three weeks ago, he was cleared to run. Dover ran the 40-yard dash last season in 4.53 seconds. He said he’s quicker, faster and stronger, and he ran the same time just a week ago. He said he’d like to — and knows he can — get that time down to 4.4 seconds. That time would have college coaches lining up. “He starts and stops and changes direction as well as anybody I’ve been associated

with,” Finch said. “He creates a lot of room. What that results in, and it’s fans as well, is every time he gets the ball, you say, ‘There’s a good chance something cool is going to happen.’” Dover’s clearly focused on his upcoming season. He knows if he performs well, there is a chance he’ll get a college scholarship. He’s been a key figure in the weight room this summer, leading the way for teammates. Dover said his goals for the next season are to stay healthy and to lead Steamboat to a state championship. And now that he’s healthy, Dover said it’s not good news for the rest of the state. He even let

a little in on what it’s going to be like now when he gets the ball. “If I touch the ball, it’s touchdown,” he said. “I get the ball, I see jerseys and go where they aren’t. I go for the end zone. I’m not the guy that’s going to run out of bounds. If you’re in my way, I’m going to run over you. If I can get around you, I’ll get around you.

MLB Padres hit season high, defeat Rangers, 7-3 Steamboat Pilot & Today • Sunday, June 28, 2009

Rockies 11, Athletics 9




Rookie Kyle Blanks drove in three runs, and the San Diego Padres had a season-high 16 hits while beating the Texas Rangers. Blanks, called up last week from Triple-A Portland, had the first RBI of his career with a double in the second. He added a two-run double in the fifth that gave San Diego a 6-1 advantage. Kevin Correia (5-5) struck out a career-high nine in seven innings, his fifth straight start pitching at least six innings. Rookie Derek Holland (1-5) allowed 13 hits and seven runs in 5 2/3 innings as Texas had its three-game winning streak snapped.

Brad Hawpe hit the 100th home run of his career, one of four hit by Colorado’s surging offense, and Jorge De La Rosa pitched six strong innings to lead the Rockies to an 11-9 win against the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night. Hawpe’s two-run blast off Oakland starter Trevor Cahill in the first marked the ninth time in 10 games the Rockies have hit at least one home run. Colorado has 20 homers overall during that stretch, including solo shots by Ian Stewart, Clint Barmes and Seth Smith against Cahill. De La Rosa (4-7) gave up two runs and five hits to earn his fourth win in his past five


MLB ROUNDUP starts after going winless in his first 10 games. The left-hander struck out five and retired 11 of the past 13 batters he faced.

Red Sox 1, Braves 0 ATLANTA

Tim Wakefield pitched six scoreless innings to win a duel with Javier Vazquez, and the Boston Red Sox blanked the punchless Atlanta Braves, 1-0 Saturday. Mark Kotsay drove in the game’s only run with a sixthinning single. Wakefield (10-3) came up with a performance worthy of the day he tied Roger Clemens’ record for the most career starts by a Red Sox pitcher at 382. His knuckleball was really fluttering on a sweltering day at Turner Field — it was 95 degrees at first pitch — and the Braves managed just three singles off the 42-year-old right-hander.

Phillies 10, Blue Jays 0 ��������

J.A. Happ pitched a five-hit shutout, Jayson Werth homered twice and the Philadelphia Phillies blanked the Toronto Blue Jays. In the first complete game of his career, Happ (5-0) struck out four and didn’t walk a batter to win for the first time in four starts, helping the Phillies snap a three-game losing streak. The victory was Philadelphia’s third in 14 games. Werth hit a towering two-run drive into the upper deck, his 14th, and Pedro Feliz added a two-out homer to left. Werth’s upper-deck blast was the 14th in the 20-year history of Rogers Centre, formerly SkyDome, and the first since Toronto’s Vernon Wells in 2004.

Albert Pujols hit a pair of two-run homers, helping the St. Louis Cardinals pound 10-game winner Kevin Slowey in a victory against the Minnesota Twins. Pujols leads the majors with 28 homers and 74 RBIs after his 29th career multihomer game, sixth this season and second in six days. Both homers came off Slowey (10-3), whose bid to take the major league lead in victories was a bust, and Pujols’ second long ball put the Cardinals ahead, 5-3, in the third.

Angels 2, Diamondbacks 1 PHOENIX

Mike Napoli hit a tiebreaking home run in the top of the ninth inning to lift the Los Angeles Angels against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Napoli hit a one-out, 0-1 pitch from Chad Qualls (1-1) 428 feet to center field to give the Angels their fourth straight win and 11th in the past 14. Darren Oliver (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth and Brian

Rays 3, Marlins 2

Pirates 6, Royals 2 Delwyn Young homered and drove in a career-high four runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to their fourth straight win. Paul Maholm (5-4) allowed only two runs in seven innings, and Jack Wilson and Adam LaRoche each had two hits and an RBI for Pittsburgh, which clinched a winning record in interleague play for only the second season since the format was adopted 12 years ago.

Carlos Pena hit his American League-leading 23rd home run, and Willy Aybar broke a ninth-inning tie with a pinch-hit sacrifice fly, giving the Tampa Bay Rays a victory against the Florida Marlins. Jason Bartlett singled off Burke Badenhop (5-3) with one out in the ninth, stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch. He scored easily on Aybar’s fly ball to center field, as the Rays won their fourth straight to climb a season-best six games over .500 at 41-35.

Orioles 6, Nationals 3

Brewers 7, Giants 6


Gordon Beckham singled in the winning run with two outs in the ninth, and Scott Podsednik homered while tying a career high with four hits to lift the Chicago White Sox past the Cubs. With the game tied at 7, Paul Konerko lined a single to left with one out off Sean Marshall (3-6) to start the winning rally. Josh Fields ran for him and moved to second on A.J. Pierzynski’s grounder, and Jose Ascanio walked pinch-hitter Jayson Nix. Beckham ended it with a long drive to right and got mobbed near second base by his teammates.

Yankees 5, Mets 0 NEW YORK

A.J. Burnett combined with two relievers on a one-hitter, Nick Swisher and Jorge Posada made Citi Field seem small with opposite-field homers, and the New York Yankees rolled past the Mets again. Alex Cora got the Mets’ only hit, lining a clean single to center on a 0-1 pitch leading off the sixth. The depleted Mets, playing with center fielder Carlos Beltran, shortstop Jose Reyes, first baseman Carlos Delgado on the disabled list, have been outscored, 14-1, and outhit, 224, in the first two games.

Astros 8, Tigers 1 HOUSTON

Rookie right-hander Felipe Paulino pitched seven solid innings, and the Houston Astros used a five-run third to pull away from the Detroit Tigers. It was Houston’s third straight win and gave the Astros the series victory in this



Nolan Reimold hit a threerun homer, Gregg Zaun and Aubrey Huff had solo shots, and the Baltimore Orioles received a strong performance from their bullpen in a victory against the Washington Nationals. After Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie (6-7) allowed three runs in five shaky innings, four Baltimore relievers limited the Nationals to three hits the rest of the way. Matt Albers worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth, Jim Johnson pitched two shutout innings and George Sherrill worked a perfect ninth for his 16th save.

Reds 7, Indians 3 CLEVELAND

Homer Bailey pitched five innings for his first major league win in nearly two years, and Jay Bruce hit his 18th home run for Cincinnati to help the Reds beat the Cleveland Indians. Bailey (1-0) was recalled from Triple-A earlier in the day to make his second start of the year and won for the first time since Sept. 20, 2007, against the Chicago Cubs. He labored through five innings, giving up three runs on three hits and seven walks.


Prince Fielder hit a three-run homer in the sixth and then knocked in the winning run as the Brewers rallied with three runs in the ninth for a wild win. Brian Wilson (2-4) blew his fourth save of the season. After Corey Hart’s RBI single, J.J. Hardy slapped a shot off the glove off second baseman Juan Uribe and Gamel raced from second to beat the throw home and tie the game. One out later, Fielder doubled into the rightfield corner.

Mariners 5, Dodgers 1 LOS ANGELES

Felix Hernandez scattered four hits throughout eight innings, and Ken Griffey Jr. and Russell Branyan each hit home runs, leading the Seattle Mariners to a 5-1 victory against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night. Hernandez (8-3) allowed an unearned run, struck out nine and walked one. Ichiro Suzuki went 3 for 5 to raise his major league-leading average to .375 and record his seventh straight multihit game, matching his career best. Eric Milton (2-1) gave up four runs and seven hits in five innings, striking out seven and walking none.

US excited to face Jiyai Shin leads Wegmans LPGA Brazil in Cup final Ben Dobbin




To dispel her jitters, Jiyai Shin reached for a sandwich. The South Korean star, seeking her fifth win in 11 months, shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday to extend her lead to four strokes at the Wegmans LPGA. “On the front nine, I lost my confidence,” the 21-year-old Shin said about a slow start. “I tried eating. Eat some bread on No. 10, and then I made birdie.” With five of her six birdies on the back nine, Shin moved to 16-under 200 after three rounds. Morgan Pressel, a twotime winner on tour whose season-best finish was a tie for seventh in April, shot a 70 and was in second place at 12 under — one better than rookie Stacy Lewis, who also shot 70.



Landon Donovan remembers the first time he played the Brazilians, when his under-23 team trudged off the field, victims of a 7-0 thrashing. “I haven’t beaten Brazil on any level,” the U.S. forward said. “It would be amazing to do it tomorrow.” Amazing, unbelievable, spectacular — any adjective would apply. When the Americans play Brazil in the Confederations Cup final today, they have a chance to create a watershed moment in U.S. soccer. The Americans have never won a FIFA tournament — this is the first time they’ve even made it to a final — and a victory against the five-time World Cup champions would signal they are closer than ever to the likes of Spain, England, Argentina, Italy and Germany. It would be a big hit back home, too, where fans who couldn’t tell a corner kick from a handball just a few days ago suddenly have become soccer aficionados. “For U.S. Soccer, this is a very special day,” coach Bob Bradley said Saturday. “It’s the first time we’re playing in a final of a world competition like this, and to play against Brazil — everybody knows their history — is extra special.” The United States has beaten Brazil only once in 14 tries, and that 1-0 victory came in Los Angeles in the semifinals of the 1998 CONCACAF Gold Cup, the championship of North and Central America and the Caribbean. Just last week, Brazil routed the Americans, 3-0, in group play at the Confederations Cup. The loss left them on the verge of elimination and had some critics calling for Bradley’s job.

after that game and are a different team now. “Winning a major FIFA championship against Brazil, on the heels of beating Spain, the No. 1 team in the world, would be an extraordinary achievement,” U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati said. “American soccer is on a long-term ascendancy — a win tomorrow would certainly help people appreciate that.” The Americans beat Egypt, 3-0, to squeak through from the group stage. They then stunned topranked Spain with a 2-0 victory, ending the European champion’s record 15-game winning streak.

Paul Goydos birdied five holes on the back nine Saturday and held a one-stroke lead against Kenny Perry after the third round of the Travelers Championship. Goydos’ 28-foot putt from off the green on the 16th highlighted a third-round 63, tying Hunter Mahan for the best round of the day. “I had a circus putt on 16,” Goydos said. “Again, it was turning lemons into lemonade. Those are the things that are the difference between maybe shooting 68 today and 63.” Perry, who led after each of the first two rounds, had a seemingly comfortable three-stroke lead after birdies on 11 and 12. But he dropped a stroke on the 14th and Goydos took advantage, making four straight birdies starting on the par-5 13th. After a rain delay of just

more than an hour, both golfers parred in. Perry missed a 5-foot birdie try on 18 that would have given him a share of the lead minutes after Goydos misread the break on a 10-footer. “When it gets dark I don’t see very good, I never had and I complain every time,” Perry said. “I can’t see the lines when it gets dark and that’s just the way it was.” David Toms shot a 66 and was in third place at 14-under par. Toms didn’t make his first bogey of the tournament until Saturday on the par-4 10th hole, when he missed a 5-foot par putt. It was his only bogey of the round and broke a streak of 45 straight holes at par or better. John Merrick held the lead several times during the round after making birdie on five of

his first seven holes. But a double-bogey on 12 led to a threestroke swing and put Perry back on top. Merrick finished with a 65 and was tied with Casey Wittenberg, three strokes behind the leaders at 13-under. Wittenberg chipped in from 51 feet on the 16th hole and made five birdies on the back nine. “I got in a groove there,” he said. Bo Van Pelt’s 23-foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th capped a round of 64 that left him at 12-under for the tournament and in a three-way tie for sixth place with Tag Ridings and Ben Curtis. “I’ve got to hit some fairways (today) to go low enough to scare anybody,” Van Pelt said. “There are going to be some low scores (today). You better have your ears pinned back and go get some birdies.”

Cheyenne Woods, the niece of Tiger Woods, missed the cut by four strokes in her professional golf debut. Woods and 70 other players completed their second rounds Saturday morning after play was interrupted by thunderstorms Friday. Defending champion Eun-Hee Ji could only manage a 71 and crashed at 7 over. In 2008, Shin became the first non-LPGA member to win three events. A multiple winner on the Korean tour, she reeled in the Women’s British Open last August, then followed with late-season wins in the Mizuno Classic and ADT Championship. In March, she captured the HSBC Women’s Champions in Singapore for her first victory as a tour member. Shin rolled in a 20-foot birdie

putt on No. 1, but she failed to reach the par-4 sixth in two and missed a 6-foot par putt for her only bogey at Locust Hill, a traditional, tree-lined course with compact, undulating greens. After failing to hit a succession of greens in regulation, Shin made amends by chipping in from 15 yards on the par-4 10th and left her approach shot inches away for another birdie on the next hole. She curled in a birdie from 7 feet on No. 14, another from 4 feet on No. 16 and her sixth from 5 feet on the par-5 17th. Pressel sank a 15-foot birdie putt on No. 8 to get a brief share of the lead. “Being in second spot is never a bad spot unless it’s the end of the tournament, so I still have a chance,” Pressel said. “I have to go very, very low. She (Shin) is very steady ... so I’ve got to go for birdies.”

Keeping his word


lan Goldsmith seemed like a character from a movie when I first met him. Think Peter Gibbons, the main character in “Office Space.” The British engineer passed through Steamboat Springs early last summer on the Tour Divide. The Tour Divide is a mountain bike race that leads from the heart of the Canadian Rockies to the desolate New Mexico desert and the United States-Mexico border. The race takes riders nearly 2,800 miles in the middle of June, on a trek over still-snowy mountain passes and through wide river valleys. It’s as sure to bring riders into close contact with moose, elk and grizzly bears as it is to take them to the brink of exhaustion with 125-mile days. So it’s not surprising that the Tour Divide is the kind of race that might change a person. In fact, it seems impossible to walk away from the finish line — a nearly abandoned border crossing station about as isolated as Tranquility Base— the same as when you started. A year ago, though, Goldsmith, usually a desk-bound computer chip design engineer, seemed uniquely affected. “I thought this might … show me I’m wasting my time,” Goldsmith said, relaxing on an outdoor patio at a downtown Steamboat café midway through his race. “It has.” Those are easy words to lay out in the middle of a trip — grumbling that “this is how life should be” is as regular a part of a wilderness vacation as dumb hats are a trip to Disney World. Easy words often forgotten, but they made a compelling story. I couldn’t ignore it last year when I wrote about the race. That, it turns out, was a blessing, Goldsmith said. He actually followed through, becoming one of the few travelers who has ever actually kept the on-vacation promise. “When I got back, I was thinking of quitting. I read what I said in that article, and it helped keep my focus and make sure I did it,” he said. “Without that, I might have lost my nerve and decided to stay comfortable.” Since that jump, Goldsmith said his life has been a mix of satisfaction and worry. He quit his stable job in the months leading up to the global economic depression and credit squeeze. Had that developed a little earlier or had Goldsmith waited a little longer, he said he’d likely still be working 9 to 5 in the densely populated southern regions of England. As it is, he moved to the less populated and more rugged terrain in the country’s north. He immediately was hired by his former company — whose praise he now sings — to do contract work from his home. He also has sought out other contracting opportunities. And he’s back, again taking an ultimate tour through North America’s mountains on the Tour Divide. He was happy and bright on Wednesday as he again passed through Steamboat Springs — a far cry from the man who a year ago seemed afraid to finish the race and return to his life. Peter Gibbons never had it so good.


Joy Rasmussen demonstrates proper stroke technique to Kim Romick on Saturday at Old Town Hot Springs. Romick said she has logged plenty of miles running but is trying to improve her swimming performance before tackling her first triathlon Aug. 30 at Lake Catamount near Steamboat Springs.

Training for the triathlon Clinics offered to help athletes gear up for annual 3-sport event


he Old Town Hot Springs lap swimming pool was nearly overflowing Saturday morning. Not with water, but with eager swimmers who orbited around each lane — anything to squeeze in another aquatic athlete. Kim Romick found a lane of her own, and before a cool night STORY BY had entirely JOEL turned into a REICHENBERGER hot day, she was working in the pool. Saturday swims are a part of Romick’s plan to compete in her first triathlon. “I am trying something totally different with this race,” she said. “It’s demanding. It’s hard to fit it all in, but I’m loving it.” The Steamboat Triathlon is only nine weeks away, and Romick intends to be ready for everything the grueling race can throw at her. “I needed something to keep me going, keep me motivated, and it’s fun to try something different,” Romick said. “I wanted something to give me a really strong focus, and this has.”


Starting over If all goes well, no one will ever notice that 2009 marks the start of a whole new existence for the five-year-old Steamboat Triathlon. The race previously has been organized and directed by 5430 Sports, a company that specializes in promoting and putting on the increasingly popular multi-sport events. A fallout between local organizers and the Boulderbased company changed all that, however. Now Steamboat Springs locals are sponsoring, staffing, organizing and worrying about the triathlon. Even in their first year in the pilot’s seat, Steamboat’s organizers aren’t worried. “Pressure? The pressure I

experience is coming from real estate sales,” said race director Joy Rasmussen, a Realtor with Colorado Group Realty. Nearly 300 competitors already have registered for the Steamboat Triathlon. It’s a number that Rasmussen said organizers are happy with, especially considering the amount of time before the actual event. Still, it lags behind sign-ups in years past. Last year’s triathlon was at its 600-athlete capacity in early July. “We weren’t handed the keys to the entire logistics and mailing lists,” Rasmussen said. “We’re starting from scratch, but we are way ahead of where we thought we’d be. We are really excited to have a couple hundred people already. We have a tremendous amount of support that is very grass-roots. “The expectations and hopes are to sell out, but everyone is just excited to be a part of this now that it has been taken over by the Steamboat community.”

Taking a dive It doesn’t have much to do with the change in management, but one of the first changes athletes will notice is a series of training camps designed to help first-timers and veterans gear up for the Aug. 30 race. Three camps will lead into the event, starting with a swimming clinic at 10 a.m. today at Old Town Hot Springs. The idea behind the series is to help athletes overcome common problems and to turn fence-sit-

ting locals into registered competitors. Swimming is one area that experienced triathlon competitors admit often needs work. Rasmussen enlisted Patti Worsley to offer the necessary help. Worsley coaches the swimming team at Moffat County High School and helped both of her sons, Blake and Cole, earn college scholarships in the pool. “We will be specializing in technique for any triathletes in need of perfecting their strokes,” Worsley said. “We will also focus on the mental aspects of swimming a triathlon.” Rasmussen and Worsley said swimming often can be the Achilles heel for triathletes. The swim — three-quarters of a mile for the Steamboat Triathlon — isn’t your average dip in the lap pool, and the technique most swimmers picked up umpteen years ago in childhood swimming lessons won’t necessarily cut it any longer.

“Triathlons are a totally different situation,” Worsley said. “When you’re swimming there will be waves, people beside you swimming in one big group as opposed to a bunch of different lanes. We want to help people to feel comfortable.” One of the most common corrections, she said, involves teaching swimmers to keep their balance in the water. “That’s often the weakest link,” Worsley said. “They need to keep it so their head is nice and deep and they are floating instead of sinking.”

Core of the issue The second camp this summer is July 16 and takes an entirely different tone. Forever Fit, a downtown fitness studio in Steamboat, will host the clinic. Pam Turner will lead Pilatesbased workouts while Lisa Recker, a physical therapist, will help others prepare for the event. “Basically, I’ll offer a mini

evaluation,” Recker said. “If someone’s having trouble, I will be able to give them some exercises and tell them what’s going on.” Pilates, meanwhile, could help build athletes’ core strength, an especially important aspect of a diverse race such as a triathlon. “It is excellent for any athlete because all momentum is initiated from your core,” Recker said. “You’re learning to have stability where movement is initiated.” The date for the final camp has yet to be set but will be in the weeks leading up to the race and will offer athletes one final chance to hone their swimming technique with a trip out to the race venue at Lake Catamount. “We’re still two months before the race. For anyone in a reasonably good fitness level, they can still get ready for the triathlon,” Rasmussen said. “This race and distances are such that people can still jump on the bandwagon to get in enough training and do well at the race.” PAGE DESIGNED BY NICOLE MILLER

Jock Camilletti, left, and Bob Preator are set for what they said should be a great hay season. The men showed off their equipment Friday at the Camilletti property east of Hayden.

Routt County hay producers will cut and bale a bumper crop this year, Extension Agent CJ Mucklow predicted. Spring rains have kept the grass and alfalfa growing on the Western Slope, which usually puts up hay later than folks across the divide. Some producers to the east are struggling with the wet weather, which can ruin hay once it’s cut. “If we went through a cycle like that where it rained every day and you can’t get it to dry, that makes the hay worthless,”

Mucklow said. “It turns it into mush.” Routt County produced an average of 71,500 tons of hay a year from 1991 through 2007, Mucklow said. Moffat County produces about 68,500 tons. Most of Routt’s hay is grass: 51,500 tons. The rest is alfalfa. The hay already hits chest level for Jock Camilletti, who lives outside Hayden and produces 3,000 or 4,000 tons each

year with Will Montieth. They hadn’t started cutting as of Thursday. Last year, they started alfalfa June 24, Camilletti said. Grass typically comes down about a month later. “Everything is out of whack this year,” he said. “There’s not much going normal.” He and Mucklow said that Routt could benefit if the Front Range loses much hay to moisture. That would mean more demand and better prices for Western Slope hay, Camilletti said. “You don’t wish bad on anybody, but we can always use a See Hay, page 2D

‘Learning disguised as fun’ Camp emphasizes critical thinking and problem-solving skills


even-year-old Sophie Leeson’s hair was dyed bluish-green Wednesday, tied into several ponytails all over her head. “It’s crazy hair day,” she said. “You get to make your hair STORY BY really crazy, JACK WEINSTEIN and you get to dye it and stuff.” Crazy hair day was Wednesday’s theme at Camp Invention, held last week at Strawberry Park Elementary School. Each day’s theme at the camp was designed as another way to engage the children, said Director Kris Rowse. The weeklong summer day camp, in its first year in Steamboat Springs, emphasizes creative problem solving and critical-thinking skills through hands-on activities in the STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — fields. “It’s learning disguised as fun,” said Rowse, who brought the camp to Steamboat after her two children attended the camp in Boise, Idaho, before they moved to town. “The kids have no idea they’re actually learning, using words like velocity and motion, in a summer science experience.” First- through sixth-graders are separated into groups by grade and rotate through five activities each day. The activities include creating a fictional city, figuring out what to do when your spaceship crash lands on an imaginary planet, inventing something from an old appliance and building a rollercoaster, in addition to team-building exercises held outdoors.

“This is where the kids get to do hands-on activities all day and be messy,” said camp teacher Rebecca Dybas, who teaches third-grade at Soda Creek Elementary School during the school year. “During a regular school day, there’s not as much time for science this chaotic and fun.” The campers agreed. “It’s fun,” said 6-year-old Shayla Renz. “You get to play

and build stuff.” Madeline Boucher, 10, spent an hour Wednesday taking apart an old CD player. She’ll use the parts to invent a device that will launch an egg into a frying pan, hopefully breaking it. “I like how it’s problem solving,” she said about the outfits and shelters they designed to stay safe from a storm on the imaginary planet where their spaceship landed.

Camp teacher Phyllis Cron, who was supervising the campers’ inventions, said some campers have even gotten frustrated at times. Unlike a regular classroom setting where there’s a problem and solution, she said, things aren’t quite as simple at Camp Invention. “The fun thing about this is the kids have an open-ended opportunity to solve a problem,” said Cron, who works as the

gifted and talented teacher at Steamboat Springs High School during the school year. “Almost any answer is right.” Annie Kavanaugh, who is working at the camp, said she signed up her 10-year-old daughter Ellie because it was completely new and different than anything else offered in Steamboat.

Bringing out the wild

Born Free rehab center helps injured creatures get back home Margaret Hair



Tracy Bye has loved animals her whole life and has been taking care of them for most of it. When she was 8 years old, a swarm of monarch butterflies descended on her hometown of Boulder. By volume alone, many of those were hit by cars and injured. So Bye started a butterfly hospital at her house, repairing wings until the butterflies could go free. For the past 16 years, that home animal hospital has con-

tinued, in a much bigger way. Bye runs Born Free Wildlife Rehabilitation Center out of her house, garage and backyard. “I’ve always been an animal lover, and I guess my relationships with animals have always been easy — easier than with people, sometimes,” Bye said. As a Colorado Division of Wildlife licensed wildlife rehabilitator for Steamboat Springs, Bye takes in animals of all sizes and ages and cares for them with the eventual goal of reintroducing them into the wild. It’s a volunteer effort that picks up during the summer, when Bye is on

break from teaching sixth-grade math and science at Steamboat Springs Middle School. “I do everything from baby field mice to moose, and baby bluebirds to eagles. We’ve gotten all sorts of wildlife,” Bye said. On Friday morning, Bye’s rehab center housed a variety of animals, including an infant ground squirrel, two deer fawns and a young antelope calf. Each day, Bye feeds her animals once every four hours or so. The deer and antelope get special solutions, and the tiny See Animals, page 2D

Born Free’s inhabitants can come to Bye directly from DOW. She also often receives calls from people who are concerned about an animal they think has been injured or abandoned. A good portion of Bye’s patients have been hit by a car or in the case of a recently rehabilitated badger that was stepped on by an elk, have been otherwise impaired. But the two deer fawn in Bye’s backyard came in with people who thought they had been abandoned; they hadn’t been. “People are just trying to be compassionate, and they pick them up when they shouldn’t,” Bye said. Young animals, particularly deer fawn, are naturally equipped to lay low and act lethargic, Bye said. Those traits sometimes make passerby think the animals have been abandoned, when often the doe is

nearby, she said. DOW has fielded a higher volume of calls about abandoned or injured animals recently, said Jim Haskins, area wildlife manager for Steamboat Springs. “If they run across something and they think it’s been abandoned, they should call us immediately, and we will look into it. Ninety-nine out of 100 times, they have not been abandoned,” Haskins said. It is illegal to possess wildlife in Colorado, so people should not take in any animals on their own, he said. “People should not pick these things up — they just shouldn’t. The common ones we have are birds and fawns, and there are no real circumstances where people can be in legal possession of these things,” Haskins said. Bye and Haskins dispelled a myth that fawns can’t be returned to their mothers after they’ve been in contact with people. “That’s hocus pocus,” Haskins said. “We have people bring in fawns, and even as much as a day later they’ve been handled by several people, and the doe will go back and hook up with them, and they’re good.” Bye can care for a wide variety of animals at Born Free but isn’t licensed to take in bats or skunks; those animals bring greater risk of disease, she said. Born Free usually keeps animals for about a year, and is busiest from April to September, Bye said.


A deer fawn and an antelope calf are at Born Free Wildlife Rehabilitation. Tracy Bye, who runs the center, reminds people who come across animals to not pick up fawns unless they are bleeding, have an obvious injury or it is known that their mother has been killed.

Several groups have planned Hay Day for Tuesday Hay continued from 1D little luck,” he said. A successful cut and bale requires two to four days without excessive moisture, Camilletti said. Producers also have to wait for the ground to dry. That’s because equipment can get stuck in the mud and because hay takes longer to dry if it’s on damp ground.

“Weather’s our big concern,” said Bob Preator, who works with Camilletti and Montieth. “Once you lay it down, you can get a 10-minute rain, and it can ruin it for you.” Storms forced the hand of another hay producer, Mike Hogue. He runs Bear River Ranch between Steamboat Springs and Milner. He started putting up hay early last week.

“I started a little early because the hail had come and took the tops off about 40 to 50 percent of the alfalfa, and it wasn’t going to grow any more after that,” Hogue said. He’d also heard that rain hurt the quality of Front Range hay. But those producers cut hay multiple times during the season, Hogue said. “The first cutting, there’s

quite a bit of rain damage to the hay,” he said. “The cuttings that are coming up, it might be a whole different story.” Hogue produces 900 to 1,000 tons of hay each year. In South Routt, Dean Rossi said, cold nights have kept the hay from soaring as high as producers thought the rain would push it. He puts up about 2,500 tons of grass hay each year. “We’re not going to have a bumper crop, by any means,” Rossi said. He said other Yampa-area producers had told him the same. Camilletti and Montieth have produced hay together for at least 15 years. They cut about half grass, half alfalfa. Of the crop, about 60 percent leaves the area. Much of it goes to Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. The high-altitude hay is popular, Camilletti said, and grass hay particularly is good for horses. Several groups, including the Colorado State University Extension, have planned a Hay Day for Tuesday. The event at Sidney Peak Ranch near Steamboat will include informational talks and equipment exhibits, Mucklow said. He expects it to be useful to all hay producers. Hogue noted that buyers want “nice, clean, bright hay” for horses and are less concerned about that for cows. Most alfalfa goes to Front Range dairies, he said. If the rain continues but lets up in time for cutting, the hay will be great, Camilletti said. “Rain is wonderful,” he said. “It’s wonderful stuff. I’ll never cuss the rain, but right now, I’m getting concerned.” The crop could look good statewide if the weather cooperates. “It’s going to be a good year for hay for everybody,” Camilletti said.

His grandparents are Mary Edwards and Nick Teverbaugh, of Stagecoach; Jerry Tuttle and Kathie Gorham, of Seattle, Wash; Rich and Anilla Lawton, of St. Charles, Mo.; and the late Hope Anderton Tuttle. He has one sibling, Kade.

Main-Phillips Rex Arthur Main and Amanda Leigh Phillips were married June 8, 2009. Their officiant was Jonathan Melvin, and friend of the couple Abby Bushnell assisted them every step of the way. They had photographs taken in the Yampa River Botanic Park after their vows. Amanda graduated from Augusta State University in Augusta, Ga., in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism. She is a copy editor and page designer at the Steamboat Pilot & Today. Rex graduated from Augusta State University in Augusta, Ga., in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in TV and cinema. He was the creative ser-

vices director at the CBS affiliate in Grand Junction until he decided to move to Steamboat Springs in March. The couple moved separately to Colorado from Georgia in 2008. They now reside together in Steamboat Springs.

A directory for Routt County 75 YEARS AGO From the Friday, June 29, 1934, edition of The Steamboat Pilot: City directories are common and considered necessary, but not until recent months has the county directory been put out. Within the past six months, directories from several Colorado counties, as well as some in Kansas and Nebraska, have been issued, and they are answering a real need for the people. In the past week, Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Smith, of Hayden, started the work of getting up a Routt County directory. This book will contain valuable information about the county, each town in the county, and contains a list of the householders in the county with their addresses. It also will have a map of the county school districts, election pre-

Looking Back Articles from our archives

cincts and commissioner districts in addition to the things usually found on the map. This directory is to be sent to every home in the county for free. This is made possible by the business and professional men who sponsor the book. It is the first attempt to get such a book in this county, and it is a worthy undertaking.

Government road funds will not be sufficient The outlook is not so bright for the completion of U.S. Highway 40 to the Utah state line, though the coming meeting of the state highway board may have money for the

completion of another section of it. For one reason, the state cannot match federal appropriations because the Legislature diverted a portion of the gasoline tax to relief. Colorado will receive $3.5 million for highway construction work during the fiscal year beginning July 1 and ending June 30, 1935. Highway construction financed by the big federal grant will constitute virtually all the highway work in Colorado during the next year. Diversion of a large part of the state highway department’s revenues to relief has left the department with little more funds than are necessary for supervision and maintenance work.

Many workers engaged in great Pilot contest In many homes in Routt County last Thursday night

and Friday morning, there was a lively debate as to which was preferred — the Plymouth car or the Chevrolet. The announcement of the big contest with a wealth of prizes for friends of the Pilot was the most talked about happening in this entire section. Interest ran high. Many wanted to enter but had doubts of their ability to compete. Many were surprised when they read the announcement and found there was no catch in the plan, that all was open and above board and that there would be pay every week for the effort put forth the preceding week. Those who were really interested — who knew real opportunity when it came their way — were keen to enter this big contest and gain handsomely for a few short weeks of effort.

Support Groups


“She’s learning all sorts of new things, new concepts, new ideas,” Kavanaugh said. “It’s getting her to think outside the box. And with her friends, coming together to do something in a fun way.” Rowse worked with the regional director for Camp Invention to organize everything before Monday’s start. She hired five local teachers and trained them in the camp’s curriculum. She also hired 10 staff members and 4 junior volunteers, Steamboat Springs Middle School students barely too old to participate. Camp Invention was offered last year at more than 1,000 locations in 48 states. It was cre-

ated in 1990 by a joint effort of the National Inventors Hall of Fame and the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The success of the camp — enrollment was full at 110 students just two months after it was announced — may allow Rowse to offer more than one session next year, she said. And Camp Invention has different programs that would allow campers to experience something different if they elected to come back next year, Rowse said. Camper Zoe Sullivan, 9, had a suggestion for next year. Zoe said she wished the camp was overnight. “It’s fun,” she said. “It’s very fun.”

Sunday, June 28, 2009 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Steve Burton, 39; John Cusack, 43; Kathy Bates, 61; Mel Brooks, 83 Happy Birthday: Look for something solid and lasting and you will find your niche. There is plenty to learn through observation, experience and asking questions. Sizing down or learning to be more environmentally friendly will benefit you long-term. You have choices to make that will shape your future. Your numbers are 6, 13, 15, 19, 22, 37, 41 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Someone may try to talk you out of doing something you are obligated to finish. A secret plan will help you obtain assistance with something that is important to you. The information you receive from someone knowledgeable will lead to the right decision. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be true to your heart and you will end up finding the happiness you’ve been searching for. Don’t listen to someone who is trying to benefit at your expense. Look out for and protect your interests. ★★★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep things under wraps for now and you will have less explaining to do. The more time you spend with friends and family, the better you will understand who you have grown to be and why. Emotional matters may stifle your plans. ★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Plan to make some subtle changes around home. Someone you love will want to spend time with you and help you get things organized. You don’t have to overspend to have fun. ★★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): An emotional struggle will take its toll but, if you are open to looking at all sides of the situation, you can put any problems to rest quickly. Someone from your past will cost you emotionally and financially if you give him or her the upper hand. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You will do your best if you take action. You will prove you mean business and everyone in your way will back off. A trip will do you good and help you get to the bottom of a situation.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You can talk your way in or out of anything. You don’t have to spend money in order to make the right connection. A serious partnership can be the perfect outlet for one of your talents. Let others know what you have to offer.★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will be motivated by someone who catches your interest personally, allowing you to expand on an idea you have been trying to get off the ground. Impulse purchases will be your downfall. ★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll have all the right moves when it comes to impressing the people who don’t know you, but someone you are close to will call your bluff. Don’t take chances when it comes to a partnership or you will be faced with a decision you aren’t ready to make. ★★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can make some good decisions that will help you financially, emotionally and personally, but don’t open your pocketbook unnecessarily. You should be able to get what you want without paying for it, especially if what you want has to do with the way you are treated.★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Meddling will be taken the wrong way and will leave you on the defensive. You can only gain if you are a good listener without judgment. Good fortune regarding your monetary situation is heading your way.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It’s too late to mull over what you have to do. Action must be taken. Uncertainty should make you move, not stand still. If you hesitate now, you will have regrets later.
