Correction The next Routt County meeting on shared uses of county roads is at 6 p.m. Monday in the Commissioners Hearing Room of the Routt County Courthouse. The date was incorrect in the “New road policies ahead” article on page 3 of Tuesday’s Steamboat Today.

In a backward economy, The Atira Group is pushing forward with plans for the redevelopment of Ski Time Square. But developers will ask for a 10-year grace period before they must bring the project to fruition. Development plans for Ski Time Square — sister to the

Despite the dramatic increase in gross square footage, Atira is proposing a decrease in commercial spaces. That prospect caused some eyebrows to rise during Atira’s preapplication hearings with the Steamboat Springs Planning

Commission and City Council, but Atira argues retail studies show its proposal is appropriate. In Ski Time Square, Atira is proposing about 200 residential units totaling nearly 400,000 square feet and about 27,000 square feet of commercial space for stores and restaurants. City planner Jonathan Spence said it does not appear that See Base area, page 18

A smarter cell phone

omething is wrong with my cell phone. It has taken over my life. We have a strange and complicated relationship. I believe it owns me, which is an issue that could get me committed somewhere — just lock me up at Pearl Lake and throw away the key — but truly, it has become an electronic leash to which I feel tethered. We are overly codependent and probably need hours of intensive couple’s counseling. Can you imagine? Shrink: What seems to be the problem? Phone (sniff, sob): I feel neglected. She left me underneath a couch cushion with the remote and went to the grocery

LIFE IN THE ’BOAT

Joanne Palmer store without me. Me: I needed a break. Just 30 minutes off the electronic leash, out of touch, it was heaven! I have the Blackberry Pearl, aka. the smartphone. This Phi Beta Kappa phone has dozens of applications I do not use or understand, which makes me feel dumb. What is mobile streaming anyway? It sounds like a 3-year-old who couldn’t find a bathroom. And by “application,” I do not mean a form you fill out to apply for a job. I think an “application” is a smartphone feature. Let’s face it, these phones are designed for members of the 20-something set who want to shoot videos and pictures of themselves participating in adrenaline-charged activities and upload them to their Web sites or post them to their Facebook accounts.

For me, in the warm embrace of the 50-something years, I have a different set of application needs for my phone. I really want a hybrid phone that is part Swiss Army knife and part phone. Here is my list: ■ Face recognition I have now reached the tender age where it is getting really hard to remember people’s names. I need a phone application that allows me to hold the phone up in a discreet manner so it will recognize the face of the person coming toward me and display their name on my screen. ■ Comb, lip-gloss and tissue These are the three things I am always looking for and if they were contained in my phone, it would simplify my life. ■ Car and house keys Aren’t keys and codes obsolete by now? Shouldn’t I be able to wave my phone at my car’s ignition to start it? ■ Toothpick If you’ve ever been to the movies and eaten popcorn, you’ll know what I mean. See Palmer, page 15

The search for Steamboat Springs resident Rebecca Green has ended. Her husband, Rodney Green, found Rebecca’s body at about 1:30 p.m. Monday while searching with his brother, Randy Green, and Routt County Search and Rescue volunteer Ty Upson. Routt County Search and Rescue crews worked until 9 p.m. Monday in an attempt to recover Rebecca’s body. At about 12:45 p.m. Tuesday, Search and Rescue volunteers were able to successfully free her body from the water and a log pinning her against the creek bank. “It’s a relief,” said Rebecca’s father, Eldon Adams, at the Greens’ home Tuesday afternoon. “Mostly, I’d just like to thank the community for the love and support they have shown us.” Rodney Green said the family has tentative plans for a memorial service and burial on July 11.

It was her day to be thanked, but Janet Borden had to express some gratitude of her own Sunday. She was appreciative that the city of Steamboat Springs provides a legal means for her husband, Tim, to exercise his obsession with fire. The Bordens were recognized Sunday by the Yampa Valley Community Foundation as this year’s individual Philanthropists of the Year. Among their many gifts to the community, Tim Borden donates hundreds of hours and many thousands of dollars every year to put on the city’s annual Fourth of July fireworks display with his son, Scott. The Community Foundation also recognized the Holiday Inn Steamboat Springs as its business Philanthropist of the Year and Kayleigh Esswein as its youth Philanthropist of the Year. Betsey Jay, executive director of the foundation, said the foundation’s donor relations committee chooses winners after

Jay said the foundation looks at more than monetary contributions. “We think it’s not just about giving money — it’s also about giving time,” said Jay, who noted serving on the board of a charity as an example. “We really look at the passion that the person has and evidence of how they’ve lived it.” In addition to the fireworks,

the Bordens also have supported the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, the Steamboat Springs Arts Council, The Lowell Whiteman School, Colorado Mountain College, the Steamboat Art Museum and more.

Every dollar can make a difference

N

o one needs a reminder of the very real consequences the recession is having on Routt County and many of its residents. But we’re going to provide one anyway. The need for health and human service AT ISSUE assistance has skyrockCommunity eted in the past year. Client visits to Routt Cares Fund County’s Department of Human Services OUR VIEW have tripled. The Routt New County Council on fundraising Aging served 1,000 initiative is more meals in 2008 than it did in 2007. worthwhile Advocates Building effort to help Peaceful Communities community saw the number of members in nights it provides shelter need. for victims of domestic violence double in 2008. LIFT-UP of Routt County provided $32,000 in rent and mortgage assistance in the first four months of 2009. Not only has the demand for services increased dramatically since the economy headed south, but the funding available for local nonprofit agencies that provide direct assistance to those in need also has dwindled. Charitable giving is down about 20 percent across the state, a trend that has proved true in Routt County. Routt County United Way, which provides fund-

ing to 40 local health and human services agencies, missed its annual fundraising goal by about $125,000 last year. United Way received $500,000 in funding requests from those agencies and was able to dole out only $350,000. The truth is, most of us know at least a couple of fellow Routt County residents who are really hurting financially. Waiting lists at day care centers are evaporating as parents reduce the number of enrollment days for their children, part of an effort to reduce expenditures any way possible. Folks who never have needed assistance find themselves walking into the Department of Human Services and other agencies looking for help. For those residents fortunate to be in a stable economic situation, there’s perhaps never been a more important time to consider donating to those in need. Through a new Yampa Valley Community Foundation initiative, such donations can be quickly distributed to fellow Routt County residents who, as United Way board president Laurie Good said, are “living in the margins.” The Community Cares Fund, which launched Sunday, aims to raise $30,000 in 30 days. That money, paired with a $30,000 challenge fund already raised by the Community Foundation, will provide $60,000 to be quickly distributed to agencies that work closely with residents in need. Specifically, the emergency funds

will go to local organizations that provide food, housing, health care and safe refuge. “We think this is a time we need to come together and help people through a hard time,” Community Foundation Executive Director Betsey Jay said. Local agencies that provide the abovementioned services will fill out short grant applications to be reviewed by a Community Cares Fund committee. Funds will be dispersed to organizations that show evidence of an increasing need for their services and have processes in place to assess client needs, make allocations and account for those expenditures. Potential beneficiary organizations include LIFT-UP, Advocates, Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association, Steamboat Mental Health, Northwest Colorado Dental Coalition and Routt County Department of Human Services. Any and all donations will be accepted. If you can, please consider giving to this critical emergency fund. Visit www.yvcf. org and click on “Donate Now.” Under the “Local Nonprofit Funds” pulldown menu, select “Community Cares Fund.” Checks also can be mailed to the Community Foundation at P.O. Box 881869, Steamboat Springs, CO 80488. There will be no administrative fees associated with the Community Cares Fund, meaning all proceeds will go directly to our friends, co-workers and neighbors in need. Every dollar will help.

Back in the early ’80s, my husband and I came to Steamboat for the first time to visit friends. We fell in love with the town, beautiful scenery and, most of all, the friendliness of the townsfolk. I felt compelled to write this letter as the townspeople here have not changed through the years. On June 6, our neighborhood held a garage sale. I had raided my husband’s closet of the many shirts he had not worn or no longer wore. A gentleman and his wife came to our sale and purchased a couple of the

A short time later, this same couple returned to our sale, and the husband told me that after he got home, he tried on the shirts and found my husband’s money clip — with $400 — in one of the pockets. Yes, we were elated this kind person returned the money, but the tears that welled up in my eyes were thoughts of what a wonderful, kind and honest man he must be.

Density zoning changes unnecessary

Omar Campbell

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Not business as usual My wife and I purchased a condo in Steamboat Springs more than 30 years ago. After skiing in Vail, Aspen and Breckenridge, we bought in Steamboat to get away from the high-density development in those areas. Here in Steamboat, the downtown, the people in the community, and later their desire to set up a land trust to

save the meadows, confirmed we made the right decision. We are not against growth and good planning. However, it makes no sense to be revisiting the master plan at the base area in order to increase density at this time. With all the new condos under construction and the economy faltering, it seems like good business sense to see how existing development plays out. We already have witnessed Ski Time Square. This is not a time of business as usual. Besides, I have heard of no plans to expand the infrastructure (ski slopes and lifts) to ease the traffic on the mountain. A particular case in point is rezoning the Ptarmigan Inn to be able to build a condominium project nine stories tall. Aesthetically, this would stand out like a pimple in relationship to what already is being built on that side of the mountain. Soon, it will be like skiing down the canyons of Wall Street, which most of us come here to get away from. We certainly don’t want Steamboat to lose its openness.

“no.” There were the usual fluctuations in total votes, with the “yes” votes mostly ahead. On June 19, the “yes” led by only nine votes (227 to 218). At noon on June 19, the “yes” votes suddenly surged to 30. At 2:47 p.m. the same day, 34 votes were recorded. At 5:12 p.m. the same day, 20 more were cast — total of 84 votes in about four hours. I have spent hours studying the time sequences and talking to computer-savvy friends. Here is my conclusion: Some growth advocate(s) figured out that the “cookie” (a blocker in the computer program that limits voting to once per computer) could be deleted. This allowed an infinite number of votes to be cast from the same machine. Noting that “no” votes were closing on “yes” votes, he/she/they surged the “yes” votes to assure a significant lead. Clumsily, I might add. The result of the poll, published on June 21, was 55 percent “yes” and 45 percent “no” — about a 10-point lead because of the electronic stuffing of the ballot box.

Removing the 84-vote surge shows a statistical dead-heat; in fact, the “no” vote leads by a small fraction of 1 percent. I know that the poll is not statistically accurate, yet it does create a perception with some people that it is meaningful. Because our local elected officials are very important in the annexation and growthcontrol process, I want them to know this particular vote is a sham. Who did it? Follow the money trail. Yours for a public vote on annexation,

Staff members at the new Family Birth Place at Yampa Valley Medical Center are looking for donations from local artists to enhance the ambiance of the hospital wing that opened in May.

“We are specifically interested in acquiring fine art photography of pregnant moms, newborns and new families to adorn the hallways and public areas,” Family Birth Place nurse Alethea Stone said. Stone said the hospital also is interested in artwork of any medium that represents themes of growth, tranquility,

inspiration, movement or change. Submissions are due by July 16. Complete artwork guidelines are available on the Family Birth Place page of the hospital’s Web site, www.yvmc. org. For more information, artists may contact Stone by at alethea.stone@yvmc.org or 871-2412.

La aerolíneas Frontier elimina servicios al YVRA Horario de posibles vuelos refleja la caída del 12 por ciento en capacidad Blythe Terrell

PERSONAL DEL PILOT & TODAY

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

La aerolíneas Frontier se está sacando las colas de sus aviones adornadas con animales del Valle de Yampa después de su primera temporada de esquí aquí. Frontier no volaría al Aeropuerto Regional del Valle de Yampa (YVRA, por sus siglas en inglés) este invierno, confirmó el vocero Steve Snyder el 24 de Junio. Snyder dijo que Frontier podría regresar para futuras temporadas de esquí. La aerolínea con base en Denver, que está declarada en quiebra, añadió vuelos de Denver al aeropuerto de Hayden la última temporada. “En este año en especial hay ciertos factores que influyeron,” dijo Snyder. “Primero, el mercado realmente no fue lo que anhelábamos, esperábamos, el

año pasado, y solo tuvimos un número limitado de vuelos, y creo que hay mejores oportunidades para ellos.” La aerolínea voló del YVRA desde Diciembre hasta Abril usando un avión Bombardier Q400 operado por Lynx Aviation. El lunes, Republic Airways Holdings de Indianapolis anunció sus planes de comprar Frontier. Frontier y Lynx podrían convertirse en subsidiarias operadas bajo Republic. Andy Wirth, vice-presidente de marketing senior de Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp, y otros oficiales de Ski Corp. trabajan con las aerolíneas para arreglar el horario de vuelos de cada temporada. El resort y negocios locales pagan para garantizar cierta cantidad de ingresos a las aerolíneas que vuelan al YVRA. Frontier no era parte de ese programa. Los números de pasajeros

en 2005-06. “Reconocemos que es un paso para atrás, pero creemos que es prudente,” dijo Wirth. American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Northwest Airlines y United Airlines volaron al YVRA en el 2008-09. Estas aerolíneas están programadas en regresar. Delta compró Northwest el año pasado. Los vuelos para la temporada de esquí vienen de Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Minneapolis, New York, Salt Lake City y Newark, N.J. “Creo que es una amplia capacidad para mantener debido a la accesibilidad de Steamboat,” dijo Wirth. El año pasado, los costos de vuelo se incrementaron durante la temporada de reservaciones a causa del incremento del gas y precios de los combustibles. Luego bajaron junto con la

economía. Este año, Wirth ha dicho que espera que los pasajes sean más razonables. Una verificación de ello muestra que un pasaje de ida y vuelta por American Airlines de Chicago a Hayden desde el 24 de Diciembre al 2 de Enero del 2010 esta casi $490. Un vuelo de ida y vuelta en Continental desde Houston a Hayden durante el mismo tiempo está casi $453. Wirth atribuyó los problemas de Frontier en parte a que entró tarde al mercado de Steamboat el año pasado y que tenía mucha capacidad. Frontier comenzó con tres vuelos diarios a Denver. Gerente del Aeropuerto Dave Ruppel dijo que apreció la presencia de Frontier. “Disfrutamos de tener el servicio adicional aquí,” él dijo. “Creo que fue un problema para ellos competir con los que ya estaban aquí.”

Buy Local. Think Community. At the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association, the Buy Local campaign has been about community dedication, reenergizing grass-roots efforts and showing commitment to the local businesses of Steamboat Springs. Throughout the past six months, the Chamber has worked to identify five Buy Local campaign themes that highlight benefits of purchasing goods and services locally. Members of our community have various reasons they choose to buy locally. What is your reason to buy locally? Is it for businesses to give locally, build local partnerships, get value from local vendors or choose to protect the environment and be green? The original idea that started the movement in Steamboat Springs is the idea of Buy Local. Think Community. The notion of “Buy Local. Think Community.” speaks to the hard-hitting, bottom-line reasons to purchase locally. When local customers pay local sales tax, they provide funding for city and county services such as snowplowing and road maintenance. Sales tax also pays for other popular and widely used amenities such as parks, affordable housing and the Yampa River Core Trail. Almost $20 million in 2007 and 2008 came in from sales tax revenues to fund city operations. A portion of the Steamboat Springs sales tax helps to fund our public education through grants to manage growth of class sizes and provides the latest technology to students. The half-cent sales tax for education now has been voted in three times by our citizens who strongly support quality education. “We should think of buying locally as contributing locally

How to help Your sales tax dollars help fund the following local city amenities. Think of these when you are making a purchase, local or otherwise. All numbers are approximate. • $5 million annually is allocated to the city of Steamboat Springs Parks, Open Space and Recreational Services Department — baseball, volleyball and soccer leagues, youth sports and summer camps • $3 million annually is allocated to the city of Steamboat Springs Public Works Department — snowplowing, road maintenance and closures, street lining, etc. • $3 million annually is allocated to the city of Steamboat Springs Transportation Department — Steamboat Springs Transit • $6 million annually is allocated to the city of Steamboat Springs Public Safety Department — police and fire departments

because they are one and the same,” said Del Lockhart, fourth generation owner of F.M. Light & Sons. “The loss of revenue (to outside economies) though subtle and invisible, is exponentially damaging to a community’s long-term health. When the community members buy outside of Steamboat Springs, regardless of the venue, those dollars, their exponential potential and the human capital derived from those dollars are lost forever.” Business people and local government officials see eye to eye in recognizing the importance of keeping money local, supporting neighbor businesses and how every dime has exponential impacts affecting local commerce. “There is no question that every purchase we make as a business or as an individual has a ripple effect in our community. Money that is spent in our community stays in our community and is then able to be recirculated,” said Jon Quinn, Steamboat Springs City Council member

Steamboat Springs’ sales tax dollars help fund widely used amenities and services in town such as snowplowing, parks and recreation and the Yampa River Core Trail. Other entities, such as Steamboat Springs Transit, are completely supported by sales tax. Pictured is the Steamboat Springs Transit hybrid bus.

and partner at Northwest Data Services. “The city of Steamboat Springs is completely unique among other resort towns in Colorado. Currently, the sales tax is the lion’s share of the city’s general fund. We rely on locals keeping money in the community, as well as tourism dollars, to help fund our city services and our wonderful amenities. Buying locally makes an enormous impact on the city’s ability to deliver essential services to the community.” The Chamber’s Buy Local program has shown that when residents and visitors spend money in town, that money helps to support the community organizations, groups, events and activities that help make Steamboat Springs such an

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

attractive place to live, work and play. Keeping your money in the community helps create and sustain local payrolls and local jobs. In the current economy, sales tax doesn’t just affect the city’s general fund; it also influences businesses and their livelihoods. Something important to reflect upon before purchasing anything, especially outside of the Yampa Valley, is to think about the businesses here in Steamboat Springs and who you would miss the most if a business were to close its doors. What retailers, restaurants, lodging properties and activity driven businesses would you miss the most?

them by referring your friends and colleagues to them, making a purchase or even just letting them know what they mean to the community. Steamboat Springs has become what it is because the town has managed to sustain a small-town, genuine Western, friendly character. Locally owned and operated small businesses have invested in the community and therefore have a stake in the future viability. “Saving a “buck” — so to speak — by buying outside the community is in reality, very costly,” Lockhart says. “When we buy locally, we’re essentially helping our neighbor and ourselves at the same time. Buying locally sounds like the neighborly thing to do, doesn’t it?

Gov. Bill Ritter issued an order Tuesday for the lowering of all U.S. and state flags in honor of a fallen local firefighter. Capt. Brett Stearns, 29, a Craig resident who served the Bureau of Land Management for 10 years, was killed Friday while working with 12 BLM firefighters on a hazardous tree removal project at Freeman Reservoir, 15 miles

BLM officials said Stearns was a leader, brave public servant, mentor to younger firefighters and someone who “had the capability to inspire people, all those around him, to go the distance and do their best.” He will be remembered during a funeral at 11 a.m. today at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints Chapel, 1295 W. Ninth St., in Craig. He is survived by his wife, mother, father, brother and half-sister.

“This is where all of my natural ability lies, is with art and design,” Zabel said. Dieckhoff uses nature as a basis for the dozen pastels he has in “Songs of Summer.” “RARE: Imperiled Plants of Colorado,” an exhibit of botanical illustrations on display through the end of summer at Steamboat Art Museum, inspired Dieckhoff to adopt wildflowers and other plants as his subjects, he said. The pastels focus “on the bulbs themselves rather than the whole plant,” giving gallery visitors what Dieckhoff calls “the bee’s-eye view.” Dieckhoff’s rolling landscapes sit in the background of each work and represent where each plant naturally would be found. Printmaker Sanders tackled the multi-step photographic process known as Orotone for a collection of 15 images featured in “Songs of Summer.” The Orotone technique is a chemical process that follows several steps to turn a photograph into a negative image crafted on a gold background. The technique at Sanders’ hands results in images of the Yampa Valley and Hawaiian wildflowers set chromatically gold-backed paper.

audience and making some powerful music in the process. Steamboat Pilot & Today: Can you describe what people can expect from your show here? Tab Benoit: Not really. SP&T: How’s that? TB: There’s no plan. I pretty much play requests, and I play whatever feels good. I don’t have a set way of doing anything, and I don’t walk in with any preplanned show. It’s all of us together. SP&T: Why do you approach shows that way? TB: It keeps it free and open, and that’s where the magic is. You can’t plan the magic; it has to happen by itself, and that’s the best way you can do it. That’s the way the blues has always been.

What: Tab Benoit, blues When: 9 p.m. Thursday Where: Ghost Ranch Saloon, 56 Seventh St. Cost: $17 in advance; advance tickets are available at All That Jazz, Pioneer Spirits and Ghost Ranch Saloon Call: 879-9898

SP&T: Did you come to that style during your years of performing, or is it something you’ve always done? TB: It’s something I’ve always done. It’s probably why I ended up playing the style of music that I do, because that’s what fit me best. Some people are uncomfortable not knowing what’s going to happen, and some people are more comfortable — and I’m one of those. SP&T: Can you describe at all what kind of styles you might take on, what kinds of songs you might play?

TB: I don’t know — that’s the fun part. I don’t know what I’m going to do; the band doesn’t know what we’re going to do; the crowd doesn’t know what we’re going to do. You’ll see some playing, and there will be some guitar, bass and drums, and some singing.

SP&T: What about the blues makes that approach work for you? TB: Blues is a basic form of … raw emotion — nothing is written out, and nothing’s ever come out the same. It’s like if you were painting pictures, the blues would be using maybe just the primary colors and a big fat brush and coming up with a beautiful piece of work using the minimal amount of tools. … The less tools you have, the more heart you have to put into it, and you never know what your heart is going to feel from one day to the next.

I’ll be waiting for my dream cell phone ■ Small mirror You need the mirror to see if you have a kernel of popcorn lodged in your teeth and need the toothpick. ■ A small pair of scissors Have you ever noticed how difficult some packaging — especially plastic — is to open? My son just bought a pair of headphones, and we practically had to use a machete to open it. ■ Recipe help I am standing at the grocery store with a recipe that calls for the spice turmeric. Do I already have it at home or do I need to buy it? My smartypants phone should have the answer.

■ Fat siren Finally, the ability to get an honest answer to the question, “Does this make me look fat?” Because I do not have a full-length mirror, I frequently debate which pair of pants makes me look less doughy. A small but audible — only to me

— fat siren on my phone would be invaluable. ■ Medical scanner My throat hurts. Is it strep, or have I been screaming at my phone too long? Scan it! I think that takes care of my wish list. Call me when it’s ready.

That could be a potential deal-breaker for some City Council members. “I have a tough time micromanaging projects, but, yeah, I think it is,” Councilwoman Cari Hermacinski said. “We don’t have any nightlife … on the mountain anymore. It’s certainly something I think the tourist expects to be able to do … and locals enjoy it, as well.”

Burning American flags on the Fourth of July may not appear to be in keeping with the purpose of the holiday, but local veterans organizing such an event this weekend disagree. The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265 is scheduled to burn about 250 worn flags, beginning at 7 a.m. Saturday at the Moffat County Fairgrounds. The Craig Rotary Club and American Legion Post 62 have

What: Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265 flag disposal ceremony When: 7 a.m. Saturday Where: Moffat County Fairgrounds. The public is invited to view the ceremony and to bring their own worn flags. Call: VFW commander Mark Wick at 326-6998.

A flag is considered no longer serviceable when it is extensively worn, torn, tattered or soiled, Wick said. Disposing of it improperly “would be a disgrace,” the post commander added. After the colors are burned, Wick said the flag’s ashes must be buried. About nine VFW members will be conducting the burning this year. The VFW conducts flag burnings at least once a year to dispose of flags that have been given to them by residents or businesses that may not know how to dispose of the flags.

���������

Phone messages left for Mark Mathews, an Atira vice president, and the project’s architect were not returned Tuesday. City Council President Loui Antonucci said nightlife is desirable but not necessarily a requirement for him. “It will seek its own level. If it’s appropriate, somebody will put it in somewhere on the mountain. I don’t know if it has to be in Ski Time Square,” he said. “Even though I’d like to see it, I don’t know if I’d mandate it.” Antonucci said he was encouraged to see The Atira Group moving forward with Ski Time Square in a down economy. He said he assumes Atira wants to be ready with an approved project when the economy rebounds, hopes entitlements will attract investors or both. “It’s nice to see some optimism amongst everything else,”

Antonucci said. But in what could be a sign that their optimism is measured, The Atira Group is requesting an extended vesting period for the project that would allow them wait for as long as 10 years before pulling a building permit. The city’s normal vesting period is three years. Hermacinski and Antonucci said that 10 years sounds like too long of a vesting period at first blush but noted that council is scheduled to have a discussion about vesting periods at its July 21 meeting. Development plans for Ski Time Square were submitted to the city of Steamboat Springs on June 1. The city has not fully analyzed the project, and Spence said hearings with the Planning Commission and City Council are not scheduled. — To reach Brandon Gee, call 871-4210 or e-mail bgee@steamboatpilot.com

Stimulus to help fund bike path repaving along C-470 LAKEWOOD

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood helped break ground on Colorado’s latest highway stimulus project. A bike path along C-470 west of Denver is being repaved for $5 million and a stretch of the highway closer to Intestate 25 is also being repaved for $27 million. The main contractor, Castle Rock Construction, estimates six to 10 new jobs will be created because of the work. It also says 150 to 200 jobs at the company and its subcontractors and suppliers will be saved. The Colorado Department of Transportation says the groundbreaking Tuesday marks the largest highway stimulus project in the state. Colorado is getting about $400 million for highway projects and another $103 million for mass transit from the stimulus package.

Remains near Vail Pass part of FBI investigation DENVER

Eagle County sheriff’s officials say human remains were discovered in a backcountry area of Vail Pass during a search as part of an FBI investigation. FBI spokeswoman Kathy Wright confirms that agents were in the area Monday. Wright declined to say whether the search was part of its investigation into Scott Lee Kimball, 42, who has connections to four people who disappeared in 2003 and 2004. Kimball is a former cooperating witness for the FBI. In March, he led investigators to the remains of a 24-year-old woman in a remote canyon in eastern Utah. He also claims to know the whereabouts of another woman’s remains in the same area. Scott Kimball has not been charged in any of the disappearances or deaths.

South Carolina Gov.

But he said he never went as far as he did with Maria Belen Chapur, the woman at the center of the scandal that has derailed his once-promising political future. Even with the latest revelations, Sanford maintains he is fit to govern and has no plans to resign. And he insisted his relationship with Chapur, whom

he met at an open air dance spot in Uruguay eight years ago, was more than just sex. “This was a whole lot more than a simple affair; this was a love story,” Sanford said. “A forbidden one, a tragic one, but a love story at the end of the day.” During more than three hours of interviews in two days at his Statehouse office, Sanford said he is trying to fall back in love with his wife even as he grapples with his deep feelings for Chapur.

House, Senate consider consumer legislation bill Anne Flaherty

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON

President Barack Obama asked Congress on Tuesday to create a new agency to police the fine print on consumer products such as credit cards and mortgages and determine what fees, penalties and interest rates are fair. The Consumer Financial Protection Agency would be in charge of regulating those products in the same way other government agencies regulate the safety of drugs, food and toys. Obama said Americans are demanding it.

“Those ridiculous contracts with pages of fine print that no one can figure out — those things will be a thing of the past,” the president said in a statement accompanying the 152-page draft bill. “And enforcement will be the rule, not the exception.” The CFPA is part of Obama’s broader plan to increase oversight of the financial industry and eliminate regulatory gaps believed to have contributed to the economic crisis. The agency would be dedicated to protecting consumers when buying mortgages, using credit cards and taking out high-rate “payday loans.”

AROUND THE WORLD BAGHDAD

Plane crashes off Comoros islands with 153 on board MORONI, COMOROS

A Yemeni jetliner carrying 153 people crashed into the Indian Ocean on Tuesday as it attempted to land amid severe turbulence and howling winds. Officials said a teenage girl was plucked from the sea, the only known survivor. The crash in waters off this island nation came two years after aviation officials reported equipment faults with the plane, an aging Airbus 310 flying the last leg of a Yemenia airlines flight from Paris and Marseille to Comoros, with a stop in Yemen to change planes. Most of the passengers were from Comoros, a former French colony. Sixty-six on board were French nationals.

Not a single American soldier was in sight. Gone, too, were the American helicopters whose buzz has for years defined Baghdad’s background track. Left alone to protect the capital Tuesday were thousands of Iraqi troops and police manning checkpoints, with army tanks deployed at potential trouble spots and convoys of pickup trucks with machine guns roaming the streets. But it was elsewhere, 180 miles to the north, that militants delivered their first deadly challenge to Iraq’s security forces on a highly symbolic day after the formal withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from cities at midnight. A car bombing devastated a food market in the city of Kirkuk, killing at least 33 people and wounding 90. The early evening attack, which bore the hallmarks of Sunni extremist groups such as al-Qaida in Iraq, was the second in the Kirkuk area since a truck bombing killed 82 people on June 20. The latest blast was a deadly example of the violence many Iraqis fear will increase with the departure of U.S. troops from urban areas, despite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s confidence in Iraq’s nascent security forces.

Attorney General Luis Alberto Rubi said Zelaya would be seized “as soon as he sets foot on Honduran soil” and face 20 years in prison on charges that also include abuse of authority. “I’m going back to calm people down. I’m going to try to open a dialogue and put things in order,” Zelaya said at the United Nations.

Strong quarter ends cautiously as earnings loom NEW YORK

Investors carried Wall Street to a remarkable second-quarter performance even though stocks’ big spring rally stalled weeks ago. The major indexes all managed to end the quarter with double-digit percentage gains. Now, whether the market regains its momentum in the July-September period or hunkers down again will depend on what companies have to say in the next few weeks

— not just about their own prospects, but the economy’s as well. The Dow Jones industrial average increased 11 percent during the quarter, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 index surged 15.2 percent. Both indexes logged their first quarterly gains since the third quarter of 2007. The Dow also had its best quarter since 2003 and the S&P 500 its best since 1998. The S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq composite index are finishing the first half of 2009 in the black. The Nasdaq, heavily populated by tech stocks, increased

20 percent for its first winning quarter in a year and had its best quarter since 2003. The quarter turned out better than most traders might have expected when the major indexes sank to 12-year lows in early March on growing despair about the recession. But the market’s advance wasn’t as impressive as it was in mid-June, when the major indexes hit multi-month highs. Since then, investors’ uncertainty about the strength of an economic recovery has brought the Dow down 4 percent, the S&P 500

down 2.8 percent and the Nasdaq down 1.5 percent. On Tuesday, the last day of the quarter, the Dow declined 82.38, or 1 percent, to 8,447.00; the S&P 500 declined 7.90, or 0.9 percent, to 919.33, and the Nasdaq declined 9.02, or 0.5 percent, to 1,835.04. Investors have gone through a big psychological shift during the past six months. After sending the Dow plunging to a 12-year low in early March amid fears of another Great Depression, they drove it up a staggering 34 per-

�������������������������������������

cent from mid-March to midJune as the global economy and corporate world showed signs of stabilizing. It was the shortest time frame for a market recovery of that size since the 1930s. And although no one knows whether the United States was coming out of a recession during the just-ended quarter, the market as measured by the S&P 500 acted as if it was. The S&P 500 was up 13.6 percent in the first quarter of 1991 as it came out of a recession, and 16.8 percent in the fourth quarter of 1982.

It would be tough to find the best athlete in the Streeter family. But that’s what happens when you have 12 All-American selections and three college national championships. Mike Streeter, a 1975 Steamboat Springs High School graduate, and his two sons, Jake and Josh, each have significant credentials to their name. Mike won state championships in the 180-yard low hurdles and 120 high hurdles in 1974 as a junior in Steamboat. He was also a two-time All-American at Adams State College in Alamosa in the 800-meter run and finished as national runner-up one year in the indoor championships.

“No doubt about it,” Meek said about Mike Streeter’s drive. “He didn’t like anything to do with second place.” Meek said Mike was an instrumental part of building the track team in Steamboat. He said Mike’s sophomore class helped put the Sailors on the map. “Their junior year, we won league title, and they set the tone for a good track program we had for 12 years,” said Meek, who was familiar with Jake and Josh from attending camps at Adams State. Mike said when he was an athlete at Steamboat Springs, competing in track provided interesting predicaments. Without a track, and having to battle the weather as a hurdler, Mike said he trained inside the school, running down the hallways. See Track, page 28

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

The Steamboat Springs American Legion baseball team bounced back from recent losses Sunday, sweeping a pair of games from Summit. Steamboat — playing a very green Summit team — won the first game, 11-0, and the second game, 18-0. “They were a very young team,” Steamboat manager Dave Roy said. “But, anyway, you have to play the games.” Led by stellar pitching from Alan Capistron and Ryan Tib-

BASEBALL betts, Steamboat easily cruised to victories in both games. Capistron — a rising junior at Steamboat Springs High School — tossed a complete-game twohitter. He walked six and struck out 12. Tibbetts was equally impressive. The 2009 Soroco High School graduate pitched a complete-game three-hitter, while striking out 10 and walking just one. “We made no errors, and defensively, we were strong,” Roy said. “They didn’t challenge us much. There were a lot

of strikeouts. We made a couple of double plays, and the defense was solid all the way.” Tibbetts also paced Steamboat with the bat. He finished the two games with six hits, a home run and five RBIs. Brandon Clark had four hits and three RBIs, Matt Watwood had three hits with a home run and four RBIs, Capistron had three hits and two RBIs, Justin Ditter had three hits, Michael Yost had two hits and two RBIs, and Ryan Hogrefe had two hits and two RBIs for Steamboat. Steamboat next plays a doubleheader at 4 p.m. Thursday at Battle Mountain.

Steamboat’s Dingle part of trade to Flyers

PILOT & TODAY STAFF

According to ESPN.com, former Steamboat Springs hockey player Ryan Dingle has been traded from the National Hockey League’s Anaheim Ducks to the Philadelphia Flyers, as part of a move by the Flyers to acquire defenseman Chris Pronger from the Ducks. The Ducks traded Pronger and Dingle, who was playing center for the Iowa Chops in Des Moines, Iowa, in the American Hockey League, for right-winger Joffrey Lupul and defenseman Luca Sbisa.

NHL The Ducks also got first-round picks in 2009 and 2010, and a conditional third-round pick in 2010 or 2011. The move is another step in a hockey odyssey for Dingle. Dingle played hockey in Steamboat Springs in the late 1990s while attending The Lowell Whiteman School for his first two years of high school. He left to play for a club team in Eagle County his junior year, and as a senior in high school he moved to Des

Moines where he played for the Des Moines Buccaneers in the United States Hockey League. He was traded in December of 2002 to the Tri-City Storm in Kearney, Neb., and joined the University of Denver Pioneers during the 2004-05 season. He led the Pioneers that season with 22 goals, nine power-play goals, two short-handed goals and four game-winning goals. He was second in total points with 37. He left Denver after his junior year to sign with the Ducks and play in the club’s minor league system.

But everything builds on itself.” Most if not all of the national Nordic combined members are expected to compete in the Friday and Saturday events. — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail lgraham@steamboatpilot.com

“I ran 40 yards worth of hurdles and stopped before I ran into the wall,” Mike said. “We ran in tennis shoes. I never had any idea I could win a state championship. We never talked about me being able to win a state championship. All we worked on was technique and training.” In the 120 high hurdles,

Mike just edged a runner from Rangely before winning by a larger margin in the 180 low hurdles. Josh and Jake went to high school in Alamosa and were standouts in track. Jake studied teaching, while Josh studied teaching and theatre at Adams State College.

Rockies shut out Dodgers, 3-0 Jason Marquis pitched a twohitter to become the first 10game winner in the National League, leading the Colorado Rockies past the Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-0, on Tuesday night. Marquis delivered a tworun single at the plate and outpitched Chad Billingsley in a matchup of potential All-Stars. Brad Hawpe homered for the resurgent Rockies, who set a franchise record for wins in a month with 21. Marquis (10-5) tied Kevin Slowey, Zack Greinke, Roy Halladay and Tim Wakefield for the major league lead in wins, facing two batters more than the minimum and throwing just 86 pitches in his third career shutout. The complete game was his

sixth in 214 career starts and second this season. The Rockies’ 30-year-old right-hander did not issue a walk and retired 19 consecutive batters between James Loney’s one-out single in the second and Juan Castro’s two-out single in the eighth. He became the fourth pitcher in club history to win 10 games before the AllStar break, joining Kevin Ritz (1996), Shawn Chacon (2003) and Aaron Cook (2008). It was quite a turnaround for Marquis, who allowed seven earned runs in 3 1/3 innings last Wednesday against the Angels in Anaheim. He is 5-0 with a 1.84 ERA in his past eight starts against the Dodgers going back to Sept. 4, 2004. Billingsley (9-4) gave up three runs and five hits in 7 2/3 innings

Duchene looks to play for Avalanche THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NHL DENVER

Matt Duchene thinks he is ready to play for the Colorado Avalanche. “I really want to make the team this year, and I think I’m real close,” said Duchene, the third overall pick in last weekend’s NHL Entry Draft and Colorado’s highest selection since the franchise moved to Colorado in 1995. “I think my skill and my development are there right now, and I will be able to handle this level,” he said Tuesday during a tour of the Avalanche facility. “Hopefully, I will be able to grab a spot.”

Avs director of amateur scouting Rick Pracey agreed with Duchene’s self analysis and wouldn’t discount the idea of Duchene gaining a roster spot this season. “I feel he has NHL abilities,” Pracey said. “I would never say never for all our prospects (making the team). It’s whether the timing is right and whether it’s good enough for the team and for Matt as well.” The last time the Avalanche franchise selected a player in the top three was when the Quebec Nordiques chose Eric Lindros No. 1 overall in 1991. That was

their third straight year with the top pick, after Mats Sundin in 1989 and Owen Nolan in 1990. They also selected Curtis Leschyshyn with the third pick in 1988. “This is a player of high character, high skill and a high level of skating ability and speed and has shown a high level to compete,” Pracey said about Duchene. Duchene showed that this year, getting six game-winning goals while directing the Brampton Battalion to the Ontario Hockey League final. He was sixth in the league playoffs with 26 points (14 goals, 12 assists) and tied for first with six power-play goals.

Pistons fire coach Curry after only 1 season David N. Goodman

NBA DETROIT

All or nothing seems to be the formula for coaching the Detroit Pistons. Bring home an NBA championship, or hit the road. First-year coach Michael Curry became the latest Pistons coach to get the ax as president for basketball operations Joe Dumars fired him Tuesday after watching his team stumble to a sub-.500 record and an embarrassing first-round exit from the playoffs. But winning playoff games hasn’t been enough to keep Pistons management happy. Just ask Flip Saunders. Dumars fired Saunders last season after he led the team to the Eastern Conference finals in each of his three seasons. Curry was an assistant under Saunders for one season.

In 2005, the Pistons parted ways with Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown after he helped them win a title and almost repeat during his two years with the team. And Rick Carlisle was fired after two years with the Pistons following a conference finals appearance in 2003 in his second season and NBA Coach of the Year honors in his first. Curry and Dumars shared

playing days together with Detroit. That may have helped Curry land the coaching job last year, but it wasn’t enough to keep him in it. The Pistons went 39-43 in 2008-09 and were swept in the postseason in four lopsided losses to the Cleveland Cavaliers after six straight conference finals appearances. Dumars said after that series that Curry would return but changed his mind by Tuesday.

and tied a season high with 11 strikeouts — two more than he had in his previous three starts combined. He threw 118 pitches. The right-hander, coming off consecutive no-decisions in which he was staked to a lead of three or more runs both times, matched zeros with Marquis through three innings before Hawpe homered on the first pitch with one out in the fourth. Marquis gave himself a little breathing room in the seventh, stroking a bases-loaded single to left for a 3-0 lead after a two-out walk to Chris Iannetta. Marquis is a .207 career hitter with 46 RBIs and five home runs. Colorado was 14 games behind the NL West-leading Dodgers on May 27 after getting swept in a three-game series at Chavez Ravine and outscored 31-13.

Her 19th consecutive victory at the All England Club already wrapped up, Venus Williams grabbed a seat and watched younger sister Serena win easily to reach the semifinals, too. Afterward, Venus and Mom, Oracene Price, strolled out of Centre Court arm-in-arm, chatting and laughing. Sure is fun to be a Williams at Wimbledon. Five-time champion Venus beat No. 11-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, 6-1, 62, before two-time champion

Serena defeated No. 8 Victoria Azarenka of Belarus, 6-2, 6-3, a pair of overwhelming performances Tuesday that moved the siblings closer to another all-inthe-family final at Wimbledon. “They are both playing super well. They’re playing ‘The Williams Way,”’ their father, Richard Williams, said.

Lance Armstrong thinks he can win an eighth Tour de France title, well aware his aging legs are not as strong as they used to be. He also is willing to put such ambitions aside

if it means helping teammate Alberto Contador win. Contador, the 2007 winner, and Armstrong will ride for the Astana team in the three-week race that starts Saturday with a time trial in Monaco. The pairing raises an intriguing question: Can the two Tour de France champions ride together or will

their fierce individual agendas divide them? The 37-year-old Armstrong won the last of his record seven straight Tours in 2005, and his startling comeback has fans worldwide eager to see if he can add to his cycling legend. “Now it’s 2009, not 2004, 2005 or 2001, that’s different,” Armstrong said in an interview Tuesday. “I would love to be eternally young, but I’m not. That’s just the reality.” “It’s not going to be easy to win,” Armstrong added. “In December and January, I thought it would be easier. It ends up being more difficult than I thought. Perhaps because of the crash, of the complicated season or simply because I’m older now.”

“And when you’re playing ‘The Williams Way,’ it’s very difficult for anyone to touch you.” Particularly at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament, where a Williams has won seven of the past nine championships. If No. 3 Venus gets by No. 1 Dinara Safina, of Russia, in Thursday’s semifinals, and No. 2 Serena eliminates No. 4 Elena Dementieva, of Russia, the siblings would meet Saturday in their second consecutive final at the All England Club and fourth overall. It also would be the eighth all-Williams Grand Slam championship match; Serena leads 5-2.
