Demong wins Lincoln Avenue skate ski race

Stetson salesman retires after 33 years with the company

SUNDAY, JULY 5, 2009












Sherman Poppen stands next to a ‘Snurfer’ at the Tread of Pioneers Museum. He invented the toy for his children, and it became the inspiration for today’s snowboard. A collection of his Snurfers and marketing materials now are in the Smithsonian Institution.

Smithsonian honors the snowboard’s predecessor Sherman Poppen’s ‘Snurfer’ displayed in national museum Tom Ross



On Christmas Day 44 years ago, Sherman Poppen felt a sudden need to get his children outdoors. Out of that urgency rose the sport of snowboarding, when Poppen improvised a prototype of a standon-top sled on the snow-covered Lake Michigan sand dunes. Poppen, 79, is a On the ’Net longtime resident of For a full version of the story of Steamboat Springs and Sherm Poppen’s “Snurfer,” and is widely recognized the genesis of snowboarding, as the grandfather of visit snowboarding with his invention of the Snurfer, a precursor of the modern snowboard. Now, his personal collection of Snurfers, marketing materials and even legal documents have been added to the collection of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. Without the Lake Michigan snow on Christmas morning in 1965, the history of snowboarding might have traced a far different course. It’s even fair to ask whether the snowboard would exist today were it not for Poppen’s Yuletide ingenuity. “I had two kids, 10 and 5 (Wendy and Laurie) with a third (Julie) due any day,” Poppen recalled. His first wife “Nancy said, ‘Sherm, you’ve got to get those noisy kids out of the house.’ We got the sled out and went out to the dunes behind the house. But I realized the runners on the sled would cut through the snow, and it wouldn’t slide.” Poppen suspects his unfulfilled desire to go surfing caused him to invent a new snow toy on the spot at home in Muskegon, Mich. The frustrated surf daddy seized Wendy’s 36-inch skis, grabbed a couple of pieces of wooden molding from his shop and screwed them in to lock the cheap skis together, side by side.

In the weeks leading up to the 2009 Steamboat Springs Relay For Life, the Steamboat Pilot & Today will profile some of the people who have participated in or been touched by the event, starting today.



Sometimes, Cathryn Wohlfert will wear a necklace containing ashes of her sister, Susanne Agricola, who died in January 2008. Wohlfert said the death of her sister provided her with strength to fight her breast cancer.

Cathryn Wohlfert thinks her cancer survivor story isn’t bad — it’s pretty good, even. Diagnosed with breast cancer in late December 2007, Wohlfert quickly found a wide base of support in Routt County. A friend’s physician and fellow breast cancer victim served as an emotional touch point. Kind words poured in from all sides.


VIEWPOINTS LAST WEEK: Are you going out of town for the Fourth of July this year? Results/5A THIS WEEK: Do you think nightlife is important to include in the redevelopment of Ski Time Square?




As she got deeper into a patchwork community of survivors, Wohlfert heard so many trials and tales, it was hard to think hers would stand out in any way, she said.

Lost hiker found in Buffalo Park

Top 10 most-read online stories For the week of June 25 to July 1

Grand County searchers found a Craig man who lost his way while hiking Friday afternoon. They found 30-year-old Aric Harpe at about 10:30 p.m. Friday, said Darrel Levingston, a spokesman for Routt County Search and Rescue. Harpe was hiking in Buffalo Park south of Rabbit Ears Pass when he got turned around. Harpe thought he knew which direction to go but wasn’t quite sure where he was, Levingston said. “It really was the most prudent thing to just build a shelter, which he did,” Levingston said. “He built a lean-to and did exercises to stay warm. He did get his clothes dried out and just waited for the search crews to get to him.” Levingston said Friday that the man left for a hike at 9:30 a.m. At 5 p.m., Levingston said the Grand County crew was about 45 minutes away from the lost hiker’s campsite. Routt County Search and Rescue first was dispatched at about 2:30 p.m. Friday. Initially, too few volunteers responded to field a Routt County team. That changed later in the day, Levingston said. “We did actually have enough people to send out in the field, but it seemed that in this situation, Grand County could have gotten to him

Lightning strike ignites tree in North Routt County Lightning hit a Douglas fir and set it on fire in North Routt County on Saturday afternoon. The tree ignited between 1 and 2 p.m., said Bob Reilley, North Routt fire chief. Firefighters from the North Routt Fire Protection District made it to the fire about 2:30 p.m., Reilley said. The tree is on Routt County Road 64, or Seedhouse Road, just inside the boundary of U.S. Forest Service land, Reilley said. The crew still was working as of about 6:30 p.m. Firefighters will keep an eye on the tree for a few days to make sure no fire remains, Reilley said. “We actually had to come off the hill for a while because of the lightning,” he said. “Now we’re back up on it, trying to finish before dark.” The fire had not spread.

Stetson rep hangs up his hat Dick Maday honored by F.M. Light for his years of service, assistance


ant to know something about a Stetson? Maybe you want to know how to shape, steam or care for a classic felt cowboy hat. Perhaps you’re more interested in where and how the hat STORY BY BLYTHE TERRELL company started. Or maybe you’d just like to know what style best fits your head, face and body. Dick Maday can fill you in on all of it. “The most asked question of anyone is what do the X’s mean,” Maday said. “The X’s mean a standard of quality.” On Friday at a retirement party at F.M. Light & Sons, Maday was wearing a straw 1,000X Stetson. That’s as good as they get. Maday retired this month after selling Stetsons to retailers for 33 years. He represented the company to F.M. Light for about 24 of those. At the party, the Yampa Valley Boys played a song they wrote about Maday. Customers and employees drank pink punch and cut into a cake bearing his photo. “We are here today to celebrate a man who has been a tremendous help and blessing with our store,” said Del Lockhart, who owns the store with his brother Ty. Maday worked the room, talking to skiing legend Billy



A long line of cowboy hats await buyers at F.M. Light & Sons in downtown Steamboat Springs. The store is the oldest continuous Stetson cowboy hat dealer west of the Mississippi River.

Kidd — who has his own Stetson line — and shaping hats. “Look at him,” Del Lockhart said with a smile. “He is no longer working for Stetson, and he’s over there steaming hats.” Lockhart and Maday weren’t sure whether F.M. Light sold Stetson hats when the store opened more than 103 years ago. Stetson started making hats in 1865, however, so Maday said he’d “almost bet the house on it.” “This is the oldest Stetson active account west of the Mississippi,” Maday said about the Steamboat Springs store.

Getting started Maday joined Stetson after the closure of five department

stores he managed. Those were in Missouri and Kansas, and Maday originally represented Stetson in Missouri, Iowa and Minnesota. He moved his family to Colorado Springs in 1985 and changed regions. When he retired, Maday was serving Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas and Nebraska. He’s traveled about 1.7 million miles and sold about 1.4 million hats. Maday’s daughter Amy Maday attended the celebration. She was surrounded by hats growing up, and her family took vacations as part of Maday’s business trips. “It was something I grew up with,” she said. “I was a year and a half old when he started, so I didn’t know any different.” She’s got plenty of fashion-

Great words for Fourth of July


10-year vesting is too long

Gary Hofmeister



he Atira Group’s request for 10-year vesting on its proposed Ski Time Square redevelopment project is too long, but the city should remain open to a compromise from the three-year standard. Early last month, The Atira Group submitted development AT ISSUE plans for a massive 660,000Atira Group’s square-foot Ski Time Square vesting request project that would replace the Ski for base area Time Square buildings demolished last summer. The proposal project calls for about 200 residential units totaling almost 400,000 OUR VIEW square feet and commercial space 10-year period of only about 27,000 square feet. is too long, Like Atira’s Thunderhead redebut city should velopment project approved by remain open to the City Council in May, the Ski Time Square project would reach compromise 105 feet at its highest points. from three-year Although city planning staff, standard. the Planning Commission and City Council have yet to fully analyze the proposal or schedule any Ski Time Square-specific hearings, we’re concerned about Atira’s request for a 10-year vesting period for the project. The city standard is three years, though the Planning Commission and City Council do sometimes approve extended vesting periods for certain projects. It’s easy to understand Atira’s interests. Having an approved development in place with 10 years before building permits must be pulled makes the project more attractive to potential investors and offers a level of security for the developers, including against future changes to city development codes and standards. It also gives the developer more time to secure presales, a necessary component to securing financing for such a substantial project. Like City Council President Loui Antonucci acknowledged last week, there’s some measure of encouragement that Atira has moved forward with a development plan despite the recession. But extended vesting periods can be dangerous. Are we sure that a major base area development project we approve in 2010 will make sense for construction in 2020 or later? And can the city afford extended stagnancy at the base area? Because of carrying costs on the land, there exists strong incentive for the developer to move forward as soon as economically feasible. With the loss of sales tax revenue and the loss of a quality experience for guests, because of the demolition, the community’s interests and the developer’s interests are one and the same. We need to approve a vesting schedule that allows the owner of the property to go vertical as soon as possible. But a vesting schedule that is too short could cause a developer to have to jump through many time-consuming, expensive and risky hoops that could further delay the development. There are examples of compromise. In May, the council denied Atira’s request for a five-year vesting period for its Thunderhead redevelopment project. Council members did, however, give the city’s planning director authority to issue a maximum of two, two-year extensions of the vesting period. A similar exception was made for the recently approved Rollingstone condominium project. Those developers had requested a seven-year vesting period. Council approved a five-year vesting period with the possibility of a two-year extension if the project conforms to existing codes at the time. The city should consider similar flexibility with the Ski Time Square proposal. In exchange for a longer vesting period, City Council could require more nightlife at the base area. Those spaces are less profitable for a developer but are important to the overall attractiveness of a base area. Or perhaps city planners could create a formula — based on factors such as square footage, number of buildings and dollar amount of infrastructure — to guide vesting period discussions. The completion of a vibrant, modern ski area base is good for all of us and will make Steamboat more competitive in the mountain resort marketplace, particularly once the economy rebounds. We hope the city and Atira can compromise on a vesting period that allows for responsible and timely development.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Memories of July 4 When I was growing up, Fourth of July was as special to me as Christmas. We would get up extra early to do the chores — i.e. milking cows, feeding calves and bum lambs, turning the sheep and cows into the proper pastures — followed by eating breakfast, washing dishes and packing a picnic lunch to take with us. Everyone would climb into the pickup, and my dad would drive to Steamboat. We would get there at about 10 a.m., find a parking place and walk along the sidewalk on Lincoln to the F.M. Light & Sons store. I don’t know why, but that is where we always would watch the parade. The parade would begin at 10:30 a.m., and the usual front of the parade would be the local politicians, either in a car or on horseback. Also leading the parade would be the VFW Honor Guard with the flags, riding their beautiful saddle horses. The floats would follow, which included 4-H clubs, Rainbow Girls, and various clubs such as the Elks and Masons. Somewhere would be the

Steamboat Springs Ski Band. They would be on skis with rollers attached underneath. My parents would be busy talking to people they had not seen since the previous year. They had lived in Hayden, Steamboat and Oak Creek, and my dad had worked on all the main ranches, so they knew many of the residents of Routt County. After the parade, people would disperse to go to their homes, to their friends’ homes in Steamboat or to the park. We were park people and would go there after picking up a watermelon at the local grocery store. People would walk the park talking to one another and getting caught up on all the news from one end of the county to the other. Women would shake out a tablecloth and place covered bowls of fried chicken, coleslaw and potato salad on it. The watermelon would go in the creek that ran through the park to cool off. Thermoses of iced tea or lemonade would be emptied into glasses and drunk by children running through the grass and trees. Families would sit around the picnic cloth eating huge plates of food. When the food was gone, a sack of cookies would remain for

munching, and the watermelon would be pulled from the creek, sliced open, wedges cut, served and eaten with the hands. At 1 p.m., everyone would head to the rodeo grounds. The loudspeaker would be playing what we called rodeo music. I don’t know what type of music it really was. At 1:30, everyone would rise and recite the Pledge Of Allegiance, followed by the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The afternoon would be nonstop bareback and saddleback bucking horses, bull-riding, calf roping, team roping and horse racing. All the spectators knew all the rodeo participants because they were friends, neighbors or family. In the middle of the afternoon, my brother, sister and I were allowed to go buy one soft drink. I always chose the orange soda and sipped it slowly to make it last a long time. The rodeo ended at 5 p.m., and everyone would go climb in their pickup truck to head home to do the chores, milking the cows, collecting the sheep, feeding the calves and the bum lamps before See Letters, page 5A


Nothing good just happens Ken Gordon


We are about to see whether democracy works. In the debate about health care, watch what happens to the public option. Currently, the elderly (Medicare) and the poor (Medicaid) have public health insurance. Some Democrats in Congress and President Barack Obama want to add a public option for everyone. First, some background. Health insurance companies are huge and profitable. They exist to make money for shareholders. They do not exist to make their customers healthy. Their stock is traded on an exchange, and investors will invest in them when they make a good return and will abandon them the minute they can make more money elsewhere. For most businesses, a good product is the way to make money. This isn’t as true for health insurance. The market “fails” in at least two ways in this industry. First, people don’t usually buy their own health insurance. It comes with their

job. So the people who make the purchasing decision do not balance their own health against the cost. They balance someone else’s health. In a competitive business climate, this results in the lowest bid having a huge advantage. The second way the market “fails” is that people are not knowledgeable insurance consumers. The contracts are arcane and jargon-filled. You don’t know that your surgery is “experimental” until your company tells you they won’t pay for it. It is not in their interest to standardize contracts to make comparison shopping easier. The companies that succeed are the ones that have the best advertising, the largest number of exclusions, the highest co-pays and are the most aggressive in denying claims. Failure to standardize, advertising, staff to deny claims, and profit for shareholders create huge costs. The percentage of industry income that serves no useful health purpose is 20 percent to 30 percent. So the industry is terrified of

a public option — terrified. They know that insurance can be provided at a lower cost. They think that a public option will put them out of business. Their response could be to compete — standardize coverage and forms, reduce bureaucracy and sell a better product. But, based on past form, they will try to sabotage the public option first. They will lie. They will say that you won’t be able to pick your doctor. They will say that health care will be rationed. They will say that you won’t be able to get the newest pharmaceuticals. It all will be lies, and in any case, no one needs to take the public option. It is just an option. If you are happy, you can keep what you have. The insurance companies won’t oppose the public option because it’s bad. They will oppose it because they fear it will be good. Yet, they have a fortune to spend on advertising, campaign contributions and lobbyists. See Gordon, page 5A

If there ever was a time to quote one of Ben Franklin’s gems, it would be now. “Those would give up essential liberty to gain some temporary security deserve neither security nor liberty,” he said. Nothing like Independence Day weekend to go back to basics, something as a society we seem to be doing less and less. Everything is looked upon as an ad hoc moment to do whatever it takes to negotiate the current crisis. Particularly at this moment in our history, when so many citizens have voted for change — or chains — the legitimate question would appear to be whether the founders of the American experiment were as brilliant in structuring a democratic government as most have agreed until recently. The corollary question is whether we still value the freedoms they imparted to us or would rather opt for that security mentioned above. The fact is that we are well on our way to abdicating virtually of our adult responsibilities to the government. It has incrementally been moving in that direction for decades. If we truly trust the government to provide all the basics of our lives, then we certainly should have no quarrel with them taking the lion’s share of our income. As Thomas Jefferson said, “a government big enough to give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have.” Indeed, some liberals have argued that, in essence, society as a whole, aka the government, really owns everything, and it is its job to parcel it out to whomever it thinks deserves it the most. Allowing some to keep more of their own earned income is labeled a “tax expenditure.” This kind of convoluted thinking is reminiscent of the recently departed Soviet Union, where the state was the master and the people its subjects … not the other way around. We’re heading there. Does this sound extreme? Would that it were so. Founding Father and second President John Adams, known as the Atlas of the Continental Congress that produced the Declaration of Independence, noted: “There has never been a democracy that has not committed suicide.” Not conquered by foreign powers or a hostile insurrection but by just plain apathy and irresponsibility to their citizen duties. The thinking that because our freedoms are here now, it always will be thus, is incredibly short-sighted and empirically false. My particular take on this is that a great number of us simply want someone else to pay the bill. If we ask for the government to provide something rather than paying for it ourselves, that’s precisely what we’re doing. So the ultimate question is, just who is going to pay?

eating dinner and washing the dishes. For many years, during the evening, the main street in Steamboat would be closed off, and there would be street square dancing. Some families would go back to town for this. In the later years, a lighted skier would come down Howelsen Hill on artificial snow followed by fireworks. On July 5, it was back to ranching as usual.

With the recent peanutprocessing scares, the government is looking to ensure our safety. Consumer safety needs to be considered, but is the government going too far in protecting us?

Before they are done, they will have you believing that the public option is suicide. Don’t expect your elected officials to help. We have a lot of elected officials, but very few leaders. Few that would stand up to a wealthy interest that can make campaign contributions or advertise in a misleading way to constituents. You will, I fear, see dreadful positions taken by politicians. “Let’s delay the public

option for years until we see if the industry voluntarily reforms. Let’s confine the public option to businesses with fewer than 10 employees. Let’s start it as a pilot program in one district.” These dodges may sound reasonable. With televisiongenerated support, they all will be attractive rationalizations to politicians who have no courage or desire to actually lead. Most elected officials skip the leadership part of the job.

That is the risky part. That is the part that takes work and courage. It is the only part, though, that makes change. Elected officials skip this part because it requires asking people either to learn something or to change a position. It requires making people uncomfortable, and most won’t risk it. There will be a few, though, who have the courage to lead, who have the ability to educate their constituents and make them see that we can have

answer is the so-called “rich,” this precipitates a couple of more questions: Is that fair? And even if they could afford it, are we shirking our own responsibilities in a free society by relinquishing them to the iron hand of the authorities to capture from others what we

think we want and deserve? How does this auger for the future of our country, that citizens refuse to accept their basic responsibilities? President Barack Obama has been proclaiming since entering public life that redistribution of income is his primary goal. This also is redistribution of freedom: less for us, more for

the government. Other great words from John Adams: “A people that does not value independence will search among themselves until they find someone willing to lift that heavy burden of liberty from them forever.” Gary Hofmeister is the owner and operator of Hofmeister

HR 2749 will do nothing to ensure food safety and will only serve to place a large burden, with the potential for prison terms and large fines, on small farms. Please contact U.S. Rep. John Salazar and Sens. Mark Udall and Michael Bennet, and urge them to oppose this bill.

would bankrupt them. HR 2479 goes on to give the FDA power to regulate how crops are raised and harvested. This has the potential to eliminate organic food production. It also presents the possibility that producers will be forced to diverge from profitable farming methods and adopt expensive government-approved methods of production.

It is unfair for this City Council to bond this community for 10 years to the Atira Group, which undoubtedly would change in structure during that period of time. So will Steamboat. Three years is appropriate (for a vesting period with Ski Time Square redevelopment). If construction has not commenced, we should have a clearer picture of the economy by then and how it affects this project. Perhaps, given the present economy, a 2-year option under approved guidelines can be given — for example, ownership’s financial ability and qualifications. — jhr2000

It is with deepest sorrow and regret that we announce the passing of our beloved, Alice Marie Hanson-Vigil (Nicholson). She passed on June 28, 2009. She was 58. Behind, she left her legacy, passion and intuitive strength for helping others. Her demand for cleanliness, passion for genealogy, gardening, the outdoors, telling sto-

1921 — 2009 Henry Aristide “Red” Boucher, fondly known by many as just “Red,” at the age of 88, left this world behind to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on June 19, 2009. His favorite Bible verse was Isaiah 40:31, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.” All who knew Red observed that he lived this verse during his life on Earth. Red was born in Nashua, N.H., on Jan. 27, 1921, to Helen Isabel Cameron and Henry Aristide Boucher. His father, who was an engineer and soldier in WWI, died soon thereafter as a result of having been hit with mustard gas at Verdun. His mother was one of the first chief petty officers in the Navy. Red received his nickname from President Franklin Roosevelt, who picked this tousled red-haired lad up and after hearing his full name, said “They ought to call you Red.” His mother came down with multiple sclerosis resulting in Red and his brother being placed in St Vincent’s Orphanage in Fall River, Mass. With his mother’s permission and his military heritage, Red enlisted in the Navy at the age of 17. He served aboard the Enterprise in the Pacific during WWII as an expert signalman and a meteorologist and achieved the rank of chief petty officer. He served during Midway and numerous other battles for a total of 20 years in the Navy, including a stint on the aircraft carrier Saratoga as chief petty officer for com-

munications and meteorology. An upcoming politician from Massachusetts asked Red to help him campaign in the Portuguese district of the state, an area in which Red was quite popular. Red did and helped John F. Kennedy win the Senate race. Kennedy suggested that Red head to Alaska where there was great potential. Here was a young energetic serviceman who had taken his mother’s deathbed advice to “stand up straight and give it all you’ve got all of the time” and he now had some direction in which to head. He had served his country in war and peace and had the medals to prove it. He had been married twice and had four children. He had tried briefly to sell mutual funds on Wall Street, but Alaska was enticing to him. With his third wife, they headed north to Fairbanks, arriving in 1958. He opened Pan Alaska Sporting Goods in 1959. He and his wife, Heida, had five children. Red entered Fairbanks politics and served on the city council and then as mayor in 1966. He was mayor during the 100-year flood of 1967. From 1970 to 1974, Red served as the Lt. Governor of Alaska with Governor Bill Egan. During this time, he traveled across the country presenting Alaska’s views on constructing the trans-Alaska pipeline. In the mid 1970s, he set up a consulting service in Anchorage connecting outside businesses to Alaska opportunities. He married his current wife, Vicky Elkins Boucher, who was raised in Steamboat Springs, in 1976. He was elected to the Alaska

House of Representatives in 1984. He helped create, and served as chairman, of the House Special Committee on Telecommunications. After several terms in the Legislature, he did not slow down. He was an Anchorage Assemblyman. He was on the Chugach Board of Directors. He started Alaska Wireless Technology when he saw the possibilities wireless communication offered. Red worked as a consultant for Compaq/ HP Computers and convinced them, along with AT&T, to provide wireless broadband connectivity with computers for Toksook Bay and Aniak. In 1999, Red was inducted into the National Baseball Congress Hall of Fame for Red’s contributions to baseball. In 2000, Governor Knowles awarded him the Alaska Distinguished Service Medal. In 2003, he received an honorary doctorate of letters degree from University of Alaska Southeast. In 2007, the Alaska Democratic Party presented him with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his public service to this state. This year, he was inducted into the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame for his promotion of baseball in Alaska. The Alaska Society for Technology in Education honored him and established a scholarship fund in his name, supporting outstanding Alaskan students pursuing technology-related post-secondary education or training. Red suffered a debilitating stroke in 2005, and since that time, his wife Vicky and daughter Lara cared for him at home. This did not stop him from offering words of encouragement to all who came to see him. Each year, during the

baseball season, AT&T sponsors a Red Boucher night at Mulcahy Stadium. Red made it out in his wheelchair last year. This man of great stature who continued to inspire people of all ages and occupations throughout his life, who loved Alaska with all his heart and energy, who loved telecommuting with his children and grandchildren, whose heart was melded with Vicky, his steadfast companion of 33 years, and whose love of the Lord was held above all things is now free of any bodily encumbrance, free to rise up on wings of eagles. He is survived by his wife, Vicky; 12 children, Carl Boucher, Helen Loudenback, Michele Fiskum (Steve), Suzanne Donati (Bob), John Boucher (Heidi), Johanna Keys (Jeff), Jacqueline Boucher, Jamie Boucher (Si), and Jennifer McNelly (Greg), Desiree Christianson (Zach), Domini Lasecke, and Lara Boucher. There are 27 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. Red also is survived by his brother, Ewen. A Celebration of Life service was held June 26 at ChangePoint Alaska, 6689 ChangePoint Drive, Anchorage. Pastor Wayne Coggins, Red’s brotherin-law, officiated. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the H.A. Red Boucher Scholarship Fund at The Alaska Community Foundation, 400 L Street, Suite 100, Anchorage, AK 99501 or online at Red will be laid to rest at the Fort Richardson National Cemetery with full military honors.

Music manager Allen Klein, a no-holds-barred businessman who bulldozed his way into and out of deals with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, died Saturday, a publicist for his company said. He was 77. Klein, who was one of the most powerful figures in the music business in the 1960s but ended up feuding with some of his biggest clients, died at his New York City home of Alzheimer’s disease, said Bob Merlis, publicist for ABKCO Music & Records. An accountant known for his brashness, temper and tenacity in tracking down royalties and getting better record deals, Klein garnered clients including Sam Cooke, Bobby Darin and Herman’s Hermits. But he became most famous — and later infamous — for signing on the Rolling Stones and then the Beatles. Both arrangements eventually spurred lawsuits, with some Beatles fans blaming Klein for contributing to the tensions that broke up the group.

Yampa parade rained on; Mainstreet Steamboat almost out of fundraiser whistles reminded the crowd that she’s still behind the wheel of the Lizard King. “This is Steamboat’s official art car,” Masters said from behind the wheel of the gleaming Honda Civic covered in 300 pounds of embellishments — mostly reptilian in nature — made from materials such as beads, broken glass and CDs. The car is a tribute to Jim Morrison and was gifted to the Steamboat Springs Arts Council in 2005. Battery problems nearly sidelined the Lizard King, but it ultimately made it through the parade. That was good news for 7year-old Mike Buccino, who said the “crystal car” is his favorite. Mike drove an embellished vehicle of his own: a bicycle covered in red, white and blue ribbon with flags hanging from the handlebars. Many in the parade were armed with water guns — a welcome sight for sweltering onlookers and a small annoyance for unsuspecting photographers — but no other parade entrant could match the firepower of the Steamboat Springs Team Lightning swim team. Steamboat Springs Middle School student Abbey Habermehl said she was going to aim for people who looked hot and people who looked like they were having fun. “Every year, somebody always squirts the judges, so we always lose,” Abbey said. The parade started shortly after 10 a.m. with wailing fire engines zigzagging down Lincoln Avenue, and it ended about 60 floats later with a dance routine by Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp. Eight-year-old Caleb Huber, of Denver, said his hearing still was intact after stepping down from a Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue ladder engine. “After a while, it’s not as bad it seems,” he said. Perry-Mansfield was judged the best at representing the parade’s official theme:

“Steamboat Seasons … Celebrating the Beauty.” “It’s hard to beat a good parade,” said John “Doc” Daughenbaugh, who served as a parade grand marshal with his wife, Marsha.

Yampa celebrates

Bill and Cathie Voorhees were the Daughenbaughs’ South Routt counterparts Saturday, leading the afternoon Yampa parade as grand marshals. Hundreds lined the streets to prepare for the big event. Patty Redmond sat with her grandchildren Aaron and Amber. All three were decked out in American flag garb. Aaron, who turned 8 on Friday, said he was excited about the candy that would fly from floats. “I hope I’ll catch a big pack of Reese’s,” he said, clutching a cloth Wal-Mart bag. Patty Redmond’s son David came to watch the parade. The holiday is a huge event in the close-knit community, the Redmonds said. “Everybody’s a neighbor,” David Redmond said. “If there’s anything anybody needs, people are there to help out.” Yampa native Jeannie MooBLYTHE TERRELL/STAFF dy came back from Dallas for Waving the American flag was a highlight of Yampa’s Fourth of July parade for Juno Gregg, 5.

Relay For Life On Aug. 7, Wohlfert will host the survivors’ reception at the Steamboat Springs Relay For Life. Starting after the survivors’ lap around the track at Steamboat Springs High School, the reception is a way for Wohlfert to give something back to the people who gave so much to her, she said. “It’s been a wild ride. … This is a really cool community, and I just wanted to do something, I just wanted to contribute somehow,” she said. Wohlfert has spent her rare spare time during the past few months compiling a list of people in the community who have had cancer or have been otherwise affected by it. That list includes more than 180 names

The fourth annual Steamboat Springs Relay For Life starts at 6 p.m. Aug. 7 at Steamboat Springs High School. Participating teams will walk through the night to show their support of the battle against cancer. Registration for the event is open, and donations can be made directly to team members or online at www.steamboatrelayforlife. com.

of people who have survived cancer in Steamboat Springs and the surrounding areas, she said. “It’s just a way to honor the people who have struggled and been touched by cancer, and that’s what this is all about,” she said. While survivors come together inside the high school, members of teams who have signed up to raise money for the American Cancer Society through Relay For Life will walk laps around the track outside. Starting at 6 p.m. Aug. 7 and going through the night into the morning Aug. 8, this year’s Relay includes some new events that will make the fundraiser a bigger community experience, said event co-chair Linda Jackson.

“This is the 25th year of Relay For Life, and it was founded on the concept of cancer never sleeps — and by the way, cancer doesn’t know we’re in a recession, either,” Jackson said. With 41 teams and 339 participants registered, and almost $50,000 raised as of Thursday evening, the Relay exceeded $200,000 in total funds last year. Organizers hope to hit the $200K mark again. During the event, teams are encouraged to host face-painting, Scrabble competitions, S’mores cookoffs or anything else they can think of at their tents, Jackson said. “We want to keep Relay fresh every year and bring the community in to see us on the night of Relay,” she said. As cancer statistics continue to increase, Relay volunteers and other activists become more motivated, Jackson said. “It’s a cause, it’s a purpose, it’s a mission, it’s all of the above to make as much as we can for the research to continue,” she said. “And we’ve made great strides … the American Cancer Society has made these huge, huge contributions to cause and cure.”

In remission Wohlfert is in remission now. If everything looks OK on a test coming up in about two weeks, she won’t have to be tested again for a year. She doesn’t hold on to many things from her time in treatment. But she does keep a locket with her sister Susanne’s ashes inside — after losing her sister in January 2008, a few weeks after her diagnosis, Wohlfert said she thought about her “little angel” often, fighting to get through the cancer for her family as much as she did for herself. In remission, Wohlfert is taking time to get outdoors to ride a mountain bike and stay active. She’s making sure that she’s living and that life doesn’t attack, she said. “You’ve got to be on your toes and make sure you’re always watching it,” Wohlfert said about living through breast cancer. “Enjoy today, because that’s one thing it does — it kind of opens your eyes to all that stuff.” — To reach Margaret Hair, call 871-4204 or e-mail

“You hear a lot of people’s stories, and it’s really inspiring and breathtaking,” she said. “I think that for me, I got diagnosed at the age of 35, so that was kind of a blow. That may be the only thing that’s important for me to teach other people … not just old people get cancer.” What does stand out about Wohlfert’s journey — which included a bilateral mastectomy and chemotherapy treatments that ended in June 2008 — is the strength of will that propelled her through it. Sitting on her deck at the Rockies Condominiums on Tuesday afternoon, Wohlfert tugged on her chin-length hair to display her time out of treatments, and outlined a “Let’s get it done” approach to fighting a disease that the American Cancer Society estimates affects about 1 in 8 women during their lifetime. “You just take care of it — that’s what you do. You just make sure that you don’t get it back, and you just do everything that you can, and make sure that you live and that you’re grateful for living,” Wohlfert said.

Original patented, trademarked Snurfer was in stores in time for Christmas 1966 Poppen continued from 1A Poppen was pleasantly surprised with the result. “They just had so much fun,” he said about his children with their new toy. The molding strips gave the children a chance to brace themselves as they slid down the dunes and tumbled in the snow. And they did it over and over. By March of 1966, Poppen had filed patent applications, a trademark and a copyright on the word “Snurf.” The original Snurfer was in stores in time for Christmas 1966. It was yellow with black stripes and bore a logo with a cartoon-like figure of a boy, Snurfy, wearing a stocking cap riding the Snurfer with his right arm extended, emulating surfers. It retailed for $5.70, about as much as an early skateboard. In almost 15 years of production, about 800,000 Snurfers were sold, netting Poppen about $150,000.

Idol worship Snurfers have become highly collectible among modern snowboarders. “You could go on eBay right now and pay $200 or $300 for the original black and yellow

model,” Poppen said with a note Jake Burton, as he had become known, had cut up some inner of pride in his voice. Philip Johnston, a snow- tubes and screwed them in strips boarder for 18 years, did just onto his Snurfer. that.

Finally, at the age of 65, Sherm Poppen — a selfdescribed “hardcore tree skier” — was persuaded to buckle into a snowboard. He never looked back. Poppen’s collection of original Snurfers and related paperwork is destined for The Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History. Poppen was inducted into the Snowboarding Hall of Fame in 1995 and has been nominated this year for the National Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame. He is particularly happy that the Lemelson Center intends to give the Snurfer a permanent place on the Web. “They’re going to digitize everything,”Poppen said. “You’ll be able to see photographs of my boards and my patent documents. … It’s exciting to think this all started in my woodworking shop in Muskegon. It’s just so overwhelming.” — To reach Tom Ross, call 871-4205 or e-mail

When Maday travels, he said, he takes two straw hats and two felt hats. “You can feed your horse out of it, you can water your horse out of a Stetson,” he said. “That’s the reason it’s so popular.” True Stetson hats have a hologram showing their authenticity, he said. Premium hats range from $160 to $5,000. A Stetson can last forever, he said. The straw hats are waterproof. A felt hat that gets soaked probably will need to be reshaped — but it isn’t ruined, Maday said. He stopped Lloyd Lockhart in the store to admire his felt

hat, which is a soft gray called silverbelly. “You try to get a hat thin and tight with a kitten finish,” Maday said, referring to the softness of the hat. “He’s got the ultimate hat.” Maday’s daughter said hats were a passion for her father. She expects him to adjust well to retirement. Dick Maday lives in Colorado Springs and plans to spend his retirement fly fishing, playing golf and being with his family. Amy Maday said she thought Dick Maday might miss working with Stetsons each day. “It’s something that he loves,” she said. “It’s not really a job. It’s become a passion, a hobby, second nature.”

George Strait and Tracy Lawrence do, Maday said. The company looks for up-and-comers to represent its classic brand. Stetson has given hats to every president for more than 30 years, and Maday said the company just sent two to President Barack Obama. Stetson helps out with movie wardrobes, too. When “Urban Cowboy” with John Travolta came out in 1980, Stetson sold out its production for the entire year in 30 days, Maday said. The company makes 3,000 hats a day, which it produces in factories in Texas. Michelle Bauknecht has worked with Maday as F.M. Light’s buyer for about 20 years.

Alpine Mountain Ranch paving subdivision roads Bill Reid, chief operating officer of Alpine Mountain Ranch, reported Thursday that paving work on seven miles of internal roads at the luxury subdivision just south of the city limits is under way. The paving alone is costing nearly $1.5 million, he said. “Our mission to develop extraordinary curb appeal is going well,” Reid quipped. Area contractors working on the project include Connell Resources doing the asphalt work, Civil Design Consultants engineering, Precision Excavating and NorthWest Colorado Consultants geotechnical engineering, he added. Twin crews are paving the road to county specifications and the work is due to be completed Friday.

Recent home sales hit $1.27 million mark There were four sales June 29 totaling $1.27 million. Homes continue to sell for relative bargains in Red Hawk Village in Stagecoach. A 1,900-square-foot home that sold for more than $500,000 in 2007 sold for $297,000. So far this year, six homes in the project have been sold, none for more than $315,000. At the higher end, a 4,000-square-foot Stonewood townhome on Eagle Glen Drive sold for $1.995 million June 25.

Aspen dollar volume off despite some big sales The Vail Daily is reporting that even though 40 homes valued at more than $3 million have sold in Pitkin County this year, dollar volume is off significantly. Sales fell by 44 percent in May to $64.48 million, compared to $114.38 million in May 2008 according to figures released by Land Title Guarantee Co. Through May, the total dollar volume of all real estate sales in Pitkin County was $407 million compared to $608 million at the same date last year. A house in the Maroon Creek Club listed for $6.95 million was placed under contract within two weeks of going on the market. Two other houses in the neighborhood are under contract at $15.5 million and $13 million.

Horses enjoy best valley views Equestrian properties put focus on the animals


ho knew there was a Western movie set tucked away inside a private riding arena in Steamboat’s south valley? When Candy and Maury Bunn built storage units into the north end of STORY BY their arena on TOM ROSS Routt County Road 14C, Candy persuaded her husband to create scaled-down Western facades on the cabinets. She employed her artistic skills to complete the scene. A faux Western town may not be high on the list of people looking for horse property during the holiday weekend, but it certainly sets the Bunns’ 35-acre parcel apart from the others. The Bunns’ property, which does not have a standalone house, but a two-bedroom apartment built on to one end of the arena, is listed for sale at $1.17 million. Broker owner Cam Boyd, of Prudential Steamboat Realty, said there are many more properties in Routt County that are built specifically with horses in mind than most town folk are aware of. The key to selling them, he said, is locating equestrian enthusiasts. “You could go right over there and purchase a similar piece of undeveloped ground in the $800s,” he said, “but for a little bit more, you can get a lot of improvements. You need to see value in the riding arena.” In addition to his listing on the Bunn place, he and partner Pam Vanatta have co-listed Mignon Stetman’s horse property just outside the city limits off



The Bunns’ summer apartment is adjacent to their riding arena and boasts a covered porch in the French country style.

Elk River Road (Routt County Road 129). It has a five-bedroom, fivebathroom home — the kind that outdoors people are comfortable in. Receiving equal billing is the classic hip-roofed Western barn with stalls for seven horses. Barn Pros built it, and everything about the layout maximizes efficiency. The stalls have their own separate run-outs to the pasture. It’s easy to feed hay by cutting bales stored on the second floor and dropping them directly into the stalls. There is a washing stall and a secure tack room with

paneled ceiling. A pond on the property supplies ample water for irrigating the pastures and hay crop. Like the Bunn property, the Stetman property is seeking buyers who dream of keeping horses in the Yampa Valley. If anything, the niche of ideal buyers for the Stetman property is even more refined — equestrian people who placed a high value on being two minutes from their private plane would be best of all. Steamboat Springs Airport is just down the road. Boyd and Vanatta have the property listed for $2.395 million. “It’s an ideal home for a fam-

ily with young children,” Boyd said. “It’s close to town for after-school activities, and you could raise 4-H animals here.” Finished with pine floors, solid pine doors and a country kitchen, it has a casual appeal. “This is a place where you don’t have to feel like to you have to take your boots off,” Boyd said. The downstairs family room has a picnic-table-style poker table. Many families that have horses place a premium on a secondary unit or apartment. The idea is to be able to rent to a person who is good with horses and

can take care of the animals while the owners are away, Boyd said. There’s even the potential to trade horse-boarding privileges for rent. Maury Bunn said that’s exactly what he had in mind when he built an apartment into his riding arena after purchasing his place in the South Valley 10 years ago. “We designed it as a legal secondary unit, allowing a buyer to someday build the home they want.” The Bunns use the apartment as their summer residence and See Equestrian, page 2B

360 Village pursues annexation Tom Ross



Who could blame members of the Wilton West development group if they felt a little overlooked? The proposed annexation of Steamboat 700 and the potential for 2,000 new dwelling units in the West of Steamboat area have grabbed the headlines for more than a year. But Wilton West’s 360 Village is within a couple of TOM ROSS/STAFF The entrance to 360 Village from U.S. Highway 40 would be built roughly oppo- months of closing a pre-annexation agreement of its own with site the soccer fields at Christian Heritage School.

the city of Steamboat Springs. The plan calls for 638 residential units plus a 100-room hotel and as much as 62,000 square feet of commercial space. The project would be built on a gently ascending meadow just west of the existing Steamboat II and Silver Spur subdivisions, which lie outside the city limits. Steamboat 700 is on the opposite side of the existing subdivisions. Tony Connell, a local partner in the project, agreed that his company’s proposal is operating in the shadows of its larger neighbor. But he is quietly

optimistic that the lessons that his team and city planning staff have learned from Steamboat 700 could help 360 Village hit a target of annexation approval by March 1, 2010. “By the end of September, we hope to have a completed preannexation agreement, a land plan, a traditional neighborhood design zoning map, a utility plan and a traffic study,” Connell said this week. “Staff says those steps took a long time with Steamboat 700, but we hope that it can be See 360 Village, page 2B

Bunns use apartment as summer residence Equestrian continued from 1B enjoy the secluded setting. Although there aren’t many hills and trees in the neighborhood, there are very few houses in sight from the Bunns’ picnic area beside the pond. The apartment has cool concrete floors, a sleek, modern kitchen and 10-foot ceilings. An air exchange system refreshes the air. “The cool thing is, you come

right from the house into the arena,” Boyd said. There is plenty of room to train horses indoors and out of the winter weather and a row of five paddocks at the south end with storage for 40 tons of hay above. Bunn has used a clever elevator and trolley system to make it easy to feed. “I’ve set everything up so Candy can easily manage the chores on her own,” Bunn said. “She can feed outdoors

in winter with an ATV pulling a sled.” Three frost-proof drinking hydrants make it easy for the horses to get a drink on demand. An in-ground drainage system keeps the corral from getting mucky in the spring. From either the Stetman property or the Bunn property, the horses are soaking up mountain views they can’t fully appreciate.

About 140 acres would be for recreation 360 Village continued from 1B

shorter,” for 360 Village. City Council President Loui Antonucci expressed his doubts in early June that the March 2010 goal could be achieved. “I’m impressed with the proposals, but I see some red flags,” Antonucci said during a City Council meeting. With Steamboat 700 moving toward a possible final annexation agreement this year and the city entering a difficult 2010 budget process, Antonucci said there would be many crowded council agendas between now and the spring. Connell remains eager to push the pace and went as far as saying that his project could enter the build phase ahead of Steamboat 700. That’s because the developers intend to construct rent-controlled apartment buildings in their first phase, Connell said. Consequently, they wouldn’t have to wait for a large number of single-family homes already

on the market in Steamboat to be absorbed before launching a new product. Connell added that principal partner Hank Wilton has a depth of experience in developing apartment buildings in the Mid-Atlantic region. Connell said he perceives three-way benefits among the developers and the city if 360 Village can maintain pace behind Steamboat 700 and contribute to infrastructure needs — especially highway improvements. “We want to be a teammate on solving the fiscal puzzle” Connell said. Wilton West’s new neighborhood would be two miles from the western edge of the city limits on the north side of U.S. Highway 40. It would be built on 350 acres with an entrance from the highway roughly opposite the Heritage Park soccer fields. Of the total acreage, about 140 would be set aside for recreation, trails and open space. Connell said there remain a

couple of sticking points in discussions with the city. Before the pre-annexation agreement is submitted for approval, attorneys for both parties will hammer out language regarding funding of U.S. Highway 40 improvements. Connell said he and his partners are willing and able to fund improvements commensurate with the impact 360 is expected to create. “There’s never been any question, the increase in traffic that we create, we have to pay for,” Connell said. Strategically, he thinks the best use of cash from Wilton West would be to leverage state and federal highway dollars. What worries the Wilton team is how to fund the gap that would be created if the city were not in a financial position to pay its share of highway improvements. Connell said his partners are afraid that if language in the annexation agreement calls for the developers to backfill any shortfall, government officials will interpret it to mean that they don’t have to kick in. It’s important to get in the state department of transportation queue early and demonstrate willingness to provide a private sector incentive for state and federal dollars, Connell said. Similarly, he thinks Steamboat 700 and 360 Village should have their own contingency plans should one or the other not go forward. Wilton West and city planning staff also take different positions on how the requirement for affordable housing can be met in 360 Village. Connell said the developers are placing heavy emphasis on the rent-controlled apartments because they think they will fill an unmet need. Staff is holding firm to the position that the developers should provide deed-restricted housing suitable for households making 80 percent of the area median income, Connell said. Wilton West is pushing for a different strategy. The development team is not confident that it can deliver a housing product that households earning 80 percent of AMI can qualify for with lenders. Instead, they hope to provide market-rate cottage style homes meant to be starter homes for households earning 80 to 160 percent of AMI. Meeting that need is one of the clear messages that came out of the housing needs assessment survey that came out late last summer, he said.

Searching for Nos. 4, 5 U.S. Nordic Combined team looks to complete Olympic squad

Holiday heats up thrills


ext winter, fans from across the globe will travel to Canada for a chance to watch some of the best athletes in the world compete for gold, silver and bronze. But when you live in a place like Steamboat Springs, there is no reason to wait. There’s no reason to battle the crowds, no reason to sit in cold, snow-covered stadiums hoping to catch a glimpse of athletes such as Todd Lodwick, Bill Demong and Johnny Spillane. In Steamboat Springs, we’ve discovered that we don’t have to wait for the Olympics to see America’s top stars in action. There is no reason to spend thousands for plane tickets or hotel rooms. Thanks to the plastic-covered ski jump at Howelsen Hill, and the hard work and dedication of the local coaches to host a Fourth of July meet every year, we all got a chance to see America’s Olympic prospects in action this weekend. I know it wasn’t the Olympics, but it was a preview of what we all have to look forward to in 2010. Current and future stars jumped on Howelsen’s plastic and used in-line skis to race down Lincoln Avenue in front of thousands waiting for our holiday parade. I’ve been asked in the past why Steamboat Springs produces so many winter Olympic athletes. The running joke is that there is something in the water. But I give credit to the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, which continues to produce and attract top athletes with quality programs, quality coaches and quality events just like the one so many enjoyed during the weekend. This is a community that embraces its athletes, and the athletes return the favor by supporting events. On Wednesday, Lodwick, Spillane and Demong were standing in the parking lot along with a dozen future stars for an informal training competition. But they also planned on competing in Friday and Saturday’s events, as well. The events were an opportunity for those promising athletes to sharpen their skills before the snow starts to fly, but for the rest of us, it was a chance to ignite the Olympic spirit that will continue to grow in the next several months. Most people will watch those events on television thousands of miles from the Olympic venues and the excitement of the games. But to really enjoy the magic of ski jumping you need to see it live. We’ve been spoiled in our mountain valley. We are used to seeing Olympic athletes at the store, or just walking down the street. We expect to see them every winter, and we expect to see them at Howelsen. But in a few short months, these same athletes will be the center of the world’s interest far from Steamboat Springs. But those of us that live in Steamboat Springs are lucky. We didn’t have to wait, or even bundle up, to watch them compete last weekend.

U.S. Nordic combined head coach Dave Jarrett admits he’s in a pretty darn good position. Coming off a record showing at the World Championships that included four individual medals and worldwide recognition that America will be a major player at the 2010 Winter Olympics, Jarrett beams at the possibilities in Vancouver.

Although all four or five spots on the Olympic team are up for grabs, it’s a relative certainty that world champions Todd Lodwick, Bill Demong and Johnny Spillane will be three of the skiers at the Olympics. Who will fill the fourth and potentially fifth spots remains a question. “It’s a good position to be in as a coach,” Jarrett said Tuesday. “It wouldn’t necessarily be as nice as an athlete. It’s going to be cutthroat for those spots. It’s

an opportunity to be on the team with something special that doesn’t happen every Olympics.” The 2010 Olympic Team will be announced Jan. 21, 2010, but the jockeying for those last positions already has started. Spots will be picked based on results from this season and last season. One spot also will be reserved for the winner of the U.S. Olympic Qualifier in Steamboat Springs, tentatively scheduled for Dec. See Nordic, page 3C


U.S. Ski Team member Taylor Fletcher races down the in-run of Howelsen Hill’s plastic-covered ski jump Wednesday. Fletcher is one of several young athletes on the team that are pushing the veterans and vying for a place on the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Team.

ill Demong’s all about the chase. As a world champion and one of the favorites to medal at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, B.C., Demong admitted Saturday STORY BY the LUKE GRAHAM after 2-kilometer skate ski race down Lincoln Avenue — the second portion of the Nordic Combined event during the Rocky Mountain Ski Jumping Extravaganza — that he prefers to come from behind. “That’s better for me,” Demong said. “If I would have started first it would have been hard. That way you have something to go for.” Demong made the three laps up and down Lincoln Avenue in 6 minutes, 19 seconds to finish first. Todd Lodwick finished second in 6:20, Brett Camerota finished third in 6:21, Johnny Spillane finished fourth in 6:22 and Eric Camerota finished fifth in 6:23. Demong, who started 13 seconds behind Brett Camerota in the Gunderson format, had caught up to the lead group by the second lap. In a Gunderson format, racers start the ski race according to where they finished in the jumps. On the final lap, with Spillane in the lead, Demong made his move just before the final turn. Lodwick was right on his heels, but Demong was able to jockey for position and come away with the win. “Having it be a Gunderson (Saturday) some people couldn’t catch up,” Demong said. “But when you’re doing intervals, it pushes everyone’s level.” In the second part of the day’s festivities, the target jump,

local Bryan Fletcher outlasted all other skiers to get the win. Pat Arnone won the Gelande portion with a jump of 67 meters. The target jump opened with a qualifying round where

jumpers tried to hit a specific distance. After the qualifying round, the field was pared down to 24, 12 and six before Fletcher came away with the win. In the round of six, with the target set at 75 meters,

Willy Graves set the mark at 71 meters. Graves watched four skiers go and not match him before Fletcher took to the hill. See Skate skiing, page 3C

Part of Katie Carter’s reason for continuing to play volleyball is the rapid progression of her career. The other part, and the most important to Carter — a 2003 Steamboat Springs High School graduate and former All-American at UCLA — is that she absolutely loves the life she is living. She recently made the final eight of the USA Beach Volleyball U-26 team. The team will be cut to four players July 15 before heading to Finland in August to play. She’s also playing on the AVP beach volleyball professional tour, something she’s dreamt of for as long as she can remember. Add in that Carter lives two houses from the beach, spends as many as 12 hours a day playing volleyball, spends countless hours at the beach and is getting mentored by her idol, Holly McPeak — one of the most successful beach volleyball players of all time — and Carter said life is pretty darn good right now. “I’m totally focused on what I do,” Carter said Tuesday while waiting to catch a plane to Brooklyn, N.Y., for an AVP qualifier. “I’m really confident I am going to do well. Holly always tells me, ‘Katie, you’re going to be a great player, it’s just going to take time.’ She’s the best person to tell me that.” After a decorated career at Steamboat, Carter went on to See Carter, page 3C

Runners revel in big crowd Steamboat Sprint leads way for July 4 festivities Joel Reichenberger PILOT & TODAY STAFF

There certainly are larger races in the Steamboat Springs Running Series. The Steamboat Marathon, for instance, attracted nearly 2,000 people a month ago. There are more important races, too. Saturday’s Steamboat Sprint didn’t earn winners any points in the season-long championship race. There’s no race that can offer a spotlight like Saturday’s, however. Thousands of spectators lined

Lincoln Avenue, waiting after the skate skiing portion of the Rocky Mountain Division Ski Jumping Extravaganza had wrapped up and before the annual July 4 parade started. Racers in the Steamboat Sprint took full advantage, flying down the course in front of a crowd a regular series event will never see. “We just love it,” regular Steamboat Sprint racer Stuart Geer said, catching his breath after he placed first in his age division. He paused for a moment, keeping an eye out for his three children, also running the 400-

yard race. “This is awesome,” he said. “The crowd really cheers you and brings you along.” Kerry Lofy isn’t a regular on the Running Series circuit, but he didn’t miss his chance to perform in front of the crowd. He, too, won his division, crossing the finish line with a flair unseen anywhere else in the race. He wore a tight lime green swimsuit. It appeared to be meant for a woman in a mid-February edition of Sports Illustrated, but See Sprint, page 3C

Skate skiing continued from 1C “The tough part of target jumping is, obviously, the wind as you saw (Saturday),” Fletcher said. “You also want to pick a gate so you can jump far enough.” After seeing Spillane fall right before him but judge the distance right, Fletcher felt he found the gate to battle a tail wind at the bottom of the course. He jumped to 72.5 meters to take home the win. “It was a complete advantage going last,” Fletcher said. “I got to see all the other guys and what gate they go from and how far they go. You gauge it off of that, and then you can pick the gate.” Although each competition had a winner, all were in agreement that the festivities also helped grow interest in the sport JOEL REICHENBERGER/STAFF of Nordic combined.

Jarrett: Decision for final team spot will be tough als. That being said, the more competition for those two spots, the higher the level is going to be. The goal is to have all these guys pushing Bill, Johnny and Todd to be even better.” That includes several of the younger skiers. Taylor Fletcher and Hendrickson have been especially impressive in early camps, Jarrett said. “The pressure is not on us, it’s on them. We’re the underdogs, and they’re the veterans,” said Taylor, 19. “We’re going out, and like the coaches said in a meeting, we’re pushing the pace all the time. It’ll be interesting to see what happens. It’s a little early to tell, but if I get my jumping up, there’s a shot.” Although U.S. athletes should be some of the favorites for individual medals, the team medal might mean the most. In 2002, the team finished one

spot out of the medals, in fourth. In 2006, the team skied to a disappointing seventh-place finish. So while the team does boast three world champions, it won’t mean much in the team event unless a fourth or fifth skier can be found. “It takes four to make a team,” Lodwick said. “In the Olympic Games, it’s important, but the most important thing is in these camps as a team, we can push each other to be better than we are. That goes for the young guys pushing me, and hopefully what I do during the day is an influence to them. “I mean who is to say I, Billy or Johnny happen to be sick for the team event. Hopefully with the system we can enable two or three guys pushing us. Hopefully it gets to that level. The better that level is, the better we are at the Olympic Games.”

Carter teaches beach volleyball, coaches club teams Carter continued from 1C be a first-team Pac-10 and thirdteam All-American selection at UCLA. She spent two years playing professionally in Spain before returning to the states. She knew she wanted to get into the beach volleyball scene, but she wasn’t totally sure how. Enter McPeak, who earned a bronze medal at the 2004 Olympics and is third in career winnings on the AVP tour. She knew Carter from covering the Pac-10. In January, McPeak invited Carter and seven other former collegiate indoor players to a camp where she trained them three times a week for free. “In beach volleyball, it’s how much work you put in,”

McPeak said. “It’s figuring out your strengths. But the sky is the limit with her. She has the size to compete with the top player in the world. It all comes down to her learning ball control and strategy.” Carter, at 6-foot-2, plays with Christina Hinds. Hinds, who was a libero at Pepperdine, has a little bit more experience on the AVP. The team qualified for the main draw of the Brooklyn AVP tournament Thursday for the first time. Players are given points in the AVP. Since Carter and Hinds are relative newcomers, they have to play in qualifying events to get into the main draw. The team had been close, and it finally

qualified for the first time. “I see them qualifying in Brooklyn and a couple more times this year,” McPeak said. “Her big year is next year. That’s when she’ll take a big step forward.” It’s not all fun for Carter. Playing on the AVP has been costly. Training as much as she does, Carter said it’s tough to have a full-time job. She does private beach volleyball lessons and also coaches club volleyball teams. She said those gigs help her pay the bills and allow her to play volleyball. A normal day for Carter consists of practicing at the beach in the morning for three hours, doing another workout in the afternoon, and teaching a lesson

in the early evening before wrapping the night up by coaching a club volleyball team. Sometimes that translates into 14 hours of volleyball. But Carter is not worried about getting burnt out on the sport. At this point, volleyball isn’t just a game, it’s a full-blown addiction. “Indoor volleyball really narrows it down. Beach narrows it down even more,” Carter said. “Everyone is a good athlete. It’s crazy. There is such a small group of people that are successful in this sport. If my body isn’t cut out for it, I’m not going to spend five years at it … But this is a dream come true. My first dream was to go to UCLA, then play professional and now to play beach.”

instead,” Lofy said. The final touch was an American flag, pinned like a cape around his back. “This flag helped me run faster,” he said. Lofy wasn’t the only one to incorporate the spirit of the day into the race. Lilly Geer, a 10-year-old in town from Boulder with her

family, said Steamboat’s July 4 festivities are a tradition in her family and that she’s run the race every year she’s been old enough. This year, she donned a red, white and blue crown, and it waved in the wind as she sprinted to finish second in her division. “It’s really exciting,” she said. “You start to run, then


you see all the people running around you. It’s kind of like a big game of tag.” The points-awarding section of the Running Series returns today with the Mountain Madness event. The day includes a 1-kilometer children’s race, a 10kilometer run and a 13.1-mile half marathon. The race starts at 8 a.m. at Howelsen Ice Arena.

22 and 23. The skier that wins the qualifier also has to be eligible for the Olympics by having scored points in a World Cup or Continental Cup in the past two seasons. Among those expected to compete include Taylor and Bryan Fletcher, Eric and Brett Camerota, Alex Miller, Nick Hendrickson, Alex Glueck and former Olympian Carl Van Loan, who recently came out of retirement. As of now, Brett and Eric Camerota and Bryan Fletcher appear to have the inside track on the final spots after traveling to the World Championships with the team last year in Liberec, Czech Republic. Brett was scheduled to compete with the team last year in the team event in Liberec before the U.S. was dis-

qualified for a bib mishap. “Added pressure can make a difference,” Brett said. “If you put more pressure on yourself, you can definitely push yourself to train harder and get to the next level. I’ve went once (to the Olympics), and I was young. It’s definitely a goal to go this time being a little older and knowing we can do so well. It would be huge. It would be awesome.” Still, Jarrett said Brett’s performance — along with the rest of the team’s — during the next seven months will be a big factor in which skier gets a spot. “After (the top three) it’s going to be a tough decision,” Jarrett said. “It would make our lives easier if two guys separated themselves. It would be nice if going into January the decision was clear. Certainly, there are going to be some disappointed individu-

Serena Williams beats sister Venus


Howard Fendrich



Serena Williams kept telling herself she was facing just another foe in the Wimbledon final Saturday, just another woman who hits the ball quite hard, just another player trying to deny her a Grand Slam title. She wasn’t facing just anyone, of course. She was playing her older sister Venus. And when the latest all-Williams final finished, when Serena wrapped up a 7-6 (3), 6-2 victory for a third Wimbledon championship and 11th major title overall, she jogged to the net with her arm extended for a handshake. Venus instead pulled her close for a warm embrace.

Serena Williams

Venus Williams

Serena has won three of the past four Grand Slam titles and even poked a little fun at Safina, who is 0-3 in major finals. “If you hold three Grand Slam titles, maybe you should be No. 1, but not on the WTA Tour, obviously,” Serena said. Then, alluding sarcastically to two less-than-major events won

by Safina, Serena doubled over in laughter after saying: “I see myself as No. 2. That’s where I am. I think Dinara did a great job to get to No. 1. She won Rome and Madrid.” The sisters’ father, Richard Williams, used to say his youngest daughter would be the better of the two, and the numbers back that up at this point: Serena leads in Grand Slam titles (11-7), in head-tohead matches (11-10), and in all-Williams major finals (6-2). It was the 14th Grand Slam final for each Williams; no other active woman participated in more than four. Serena is 11-3 in such matches; Venus fell to 7-7, with all but one defeat coming against her sister. Asked whether it’s easier or

harder losing to a sibling, fivetime Wimbledon champion Venus said: “There’s no ‘easy’ to losing, especially when it’s so close to the crown.” She was the two-time defending champion and had won 20 matches in a row at Wimbledon, the past 17 in straight sets. But Venus — at 29, she’s 15 months older than Serena — appeared a step slow, perhaps bothered by the left knee that’s been heavily bandaged since the second round, although she refused to place blame there. “She played so well, really lifted her game,” Venus said. “I had an error here and there. Today, I couldn’t make errors.” Serena had more winners, 25-14, more aces, 12-2, and fewer unforced errors, 12-18.

Williams sisters win Wimbledon doubles title

“I didn’t think about Venus at all today. I just saw her as an opponent,” said Serena, who also beat her sister in the 2002 and 2003 finals at the All England Club. “At one point, after the first set, I looked on the side of the court at the stats, and it was like ‘Williams,’ ‘Williams.’ I couldn’t figure out which was which.” That also might have been because she was facing the only other woman who can equal her power and court coverage on grass courts. Monday’s rankings will say Serena is No. 2, and Venus No. 3 — behind No. 1 Dinara Safina, a 6-1, 6-0 loser to the elder Williams in the semifinals — but it is clear who the best woman in the world is at the moment.


Serena Williams won a pair of Grand Slam titles at Wimbledon on Saturday, just like her sister Venus did last year. Serena added the women’s doubles title to her take at this year’s tournament, teaming with big sister Venus to beat Rennae Stubbs and Samantha Stosur, of Australia, 7-6 (4), 64. It’s their fourth Wimbledon title together, part of their haul of nine Grand Slam women’s doubles championships.

“There’s nothing like winning a title with your sister,” said Serena, who has won 11 major singles titles. “It’s really a good feeling.” Earlier Saturday on Centre Court, Serena beat Venus, 7-6 (3), 6-2, in singles to win her third Wimbledon title — she beat her older sister in each final. A year ago, Venus beat Serena in the championship match to win her fifth Wimbledon singles title, and the pair then teamed up to win the doubles. “One out of two’s not bad,” Venus said. “I really wanted to

TENNIS — WIMBLEDON win the singles, but they’re two separate events. If I won the singles and not the doubles, it’s still not the same.” Against the Australians, the Williams sisters traded breaks in the first set, with Stosur and Stubbs taking a 2-1 lead off Serena’s opening service game. But the Americans eventually broke back to 4-4, when Stosur put a backhand volley into the net. In the tiebreaker, Venus put the sisters up a mini-break on the second point with a return of serve that Stubbs couldn’t

get back over. “The ball clipped the tape, and therefore it went a little bit higher than it should have and it hit my frame and didn’t quite get off the string,” Stubbs said. “It was really unlucky.” The most entertaining point of the match came with Stubbs serving at 1-1 in the second set. Serena returned the serve, and Stubbs swung her racket behind her and hit the ball through her legs to get it back over. “I do that because sometimes you have to do that,” said Stubbs, who added that she makes that kind of shot all

the time. “That’s just experience and being an idiot on the court half the time.” As the point continued, Stosur stood at the net and battered back volley after volley as both Venus and Serena grunted and groaned while sending groundstrokes back over the net. Stosur eventually won the point with a drop shot neither sister could get near, and the Australian took that game. But the sisters broke Stubbs to go up, 4-3, in that set and kept control. “I’m really excited to have doubles titles,” Serena said. “I rack ’em up.”

Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair, who led the famous Tennessee Titans drive that came a yard short of forcing overtime in the 2000 Super Bowl, was found dead Saturday with multiple gunshot wounds, including one to the head. Police said a pistol was discovered near the body of McNair a woman also shot dead in a downtown condominium. Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron identified the woman as 20-year-old Sahel Kazemi, whom he called a “friend” of McNair’s. She had a single gunshot wound to the head. Police said the 36-year-old McNair was found on the sofa in the living room, and Kazemi was very close to him on the floor. Aaron said the gun was not “readily apparent” when police first arrived. Autopsies were planned for today. Aaron said McNair’s wife, Mechelle, is “very distraught.” “At this juncture, we do not believe she is involved,” he said. “Nothing has been ruled out, but as far as actively looking for a suspect tonight, the answer would be no.” Fred McNair, Steve McNair’s oldest brother, said some family members likely will travel to Nashville on Monday to consult with Steve McNair’s wife. “It’s still kind of hard to believe,” Fred McNair said. “He was the greatest person in the world. He gave back to the community. He loved kids, and he wanted to be a role model to kids.” He said he did not know who Kazemi was. The bodies were discovered Saturday afternoon by McNair’s longtime friend Wayne Neeley, who said he rents the condo with McNair. Aaron said Neeley told authorities he went into the condo, saw McNair on the sofa and Kazemi on the floor but walked first into the kitchen before going back into the liv-

ing room, where he saw the blood. Neeley then called a friend, who alerted authorities. Police said a witness saw McNair arrive at the condo in the upscale Rutledge Hill neighborhood between 1:30 and 2 a.m. Saturday and that Kazemi’s vehicle already was there. The condominium is located within walking distance of an area filled with restaurants and nightspots, a few blocks from the Cumberland River and within view of the Titans’ stadium. Two days ago, Nashville police arrested Kazemi on a DUI charge while driving a 2007 Escalade registered to her and McNair. McNair was in the front seat but didn’t break the law and was allowed to leave by taxi. The arrest affidavit said Kazemi had bloodshot eyes and the smell of alcohol on her breath but refused a breathalyzer test, saying “she was not drunk, she was high.” In June, McNair opened a restaurant near the Tennessee State University campus. It was closed Saturday evening but had become a small memorial where flowers, candles and notes had been placed outside the door. On the restaurant’s windows were messages: “We will miss you, Steve” and “We love you, Steve.” A note attached to a small blue teddy bear read, “We will never forget you, Steve. Once a Titan, always a Titan.” “We don’t know the details, but it is a terrible tragedy, and our hearts go out to the families involved,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. McNair, a four-time Pro Bowler, led the Titans within a yard of forcing overtime in the 2000 Super Bowl, which they lost, 23-16, to the St. Louis Rams. He also played for the Baltimore Ravens before retiring in April 2008. His most noted drive, the last one in that Super Bowl, came when he led the Titans 87 yards in the final minute and 48 seconds, only to come up a yard short of the tying touchdown. Kevin Dyson caught his 9-yard pass but was tackled at the 1yard line by the Rams’ Mike Jones.

Twins subdue and cage Tigers, 4-3 Justin Morneau had four hits, including a homer and the tying single in the seventh inning, and the Twins came back to beat the Tigers. Magglio Ordonez’s threerun homer in the seventh spoiled an otherwise stellar start by Francisco Liriano, but Morneau capped the rally with his hit in the bottom of the inning. In the eighth against Brandon Lyon (3-4), Nick Punto poked a soft single over the outstretched glove of shortstop Adam Everett to allow pinch-runner Matt Tolbert to score on a head-first slide just ahead of the relay throw.

Yankees 6, Blue Jays 5

but this was simply a brutal afternoon all around.

Rangers 12, Rays 4

Giants 9, Astros 0


Andruw Jones homered and drove in four runs, Michael Young added a three-run double, and the Rangers roughed up David Price to win their fourth in a row. Nelson Cruz, who had three hits, connected for his 20th home run of the season in support of Derek Holland (2-5), who won for the first time as a starter. The rookie left-hander allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings.

Angels 11, Orioles 4 ANAHEIM, CALIF.


Jorge Posada hit a gamewinning RBI single in the 12th inning to lift the New York Yankees to a 6-5 victory against the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday. With one out and runners on first and second, Posada lined a 1-1 pitch from Shawn Camp into center field. Alex Rodriguez scored without a play as the Yankees poured out of the dugout to congratulate Posada near first base.

Mariners 3, Red Sox 2 BOSTON

Chris Woodward’s basesloaded pop up in the ninth inning dropped behind a partially draw-in infield to score the go-ahead run and lift the Mariners past the Red Sox. Jason Varitek hit a two-run homer for Boston, which also lost Friday’s series opener. The Red Sox had won their previous seven series overall. It was just their third series loss in their past 12 in Fenway Park.

Royals 6, White Sox 4 KANSAS CITY, MO.

Alberto Callaspo drove in three runs, and the Kansas City Royals eclipsed their run total from their previous four games in a victory against the White Sox that snapped Chicago’s seven-game winning streak. Callaspo hit an RBI triple off Gavin Floyd (6-6) in the fifth for Kansas City’s first run in 13 innings. His two-run single off Matt Thornton in the fifth made it 5-4 and gave the Royals their first lead in 38 innings. Callaspo’s errors at second base had figured in Kansas City’s four-game losing streak.

Indians 5, Athletics 2 CLEVELAND

Carl Pavano earned his first win in five starts, helping the Indians to a victory against the Athletics. Ben Francisco and Grady Sizemore hit homers off Vin Mazzaro (2-4) for Cleveland, which won consecutive games for the first time since June 11 and 12. The Indians’ fourth win

Vladimir Guerrero hit a three-run homer and had four RBIs, and the Angels used a late rally to beat Baltimore. Guerrero capped a six-run eighth by hitting a 1-0 pitch off reliever Brian Bass to left field and came out for a curtain call. They batted around the order in he eighth and also got RBIs from Torii Hunter and Chone Figgins.

Padres 7, Dodgers 4 SAN DIEGO

Manny Ramirez’s first home run since returning from a 50game drug suspension wasn’t enough to help Los Angeles overcome Everth Cabrera’s three RBIs as the San Diego Padres beat the Dodgers, 7-4, on Saturday. Ramirez homered in his second game and fifth plate appearance back. It was his seventh homer of the season and 534th of his career, tying Jimmie Foxx for 16th on the all-time list. Up next is Mickey Mantle with 536. San Diego scored three runs in the seventh inning and added three unearned runs in the eighth. Cabrera hit a go-ahead, two-run single in the seventh. He added an RBI infield single in the eighth with a second run scoring on the play on third baseman Casey Blake’s throwing error.

Brewers 11, Cubs 2 CHICAGO

Rookie Casey McGehee had a career high four hits and five RBIs to help the Brewers pound Rich Harden and the Cubs. Mike Cameron and J.J. Hardy also went deep to back a solid effort by Braden Looper (7-4). But McGahee delivered his best performance against the organization that let him go during the offseason. Claimed off waivers in October, he made the team in spring training and now is batting .331 in 46 games after going 4 for 5. He singled twice and tripled before hitting a tworun homer off Jeff Samardzija. The Cubs had won three in a row after going 11-14 in June,

Tim Lincecum ran his career-best scoreless innings streak to 23 in winning his third straight start and also scored the first run in the Giants’ victory against the Astros. The reigning National League Cy Young Award winner struck out nine and allowed three hits with two walks in seven innings. Brandon Medders and Merkin Valdez each pitched an inning to finish the three-hit shutout, the Giants’ majors-best 11th and fourth in their past seven games.

Phillies 4, Mets 1 PHILADELPHIA

Jamie Moyer pitched neatly into the seventh inning, Jimmy Rollins hit a two-run double, and the Phillies beat the Mets. Moyer (7-6) allowed one run and five hits in 6 1-3 innings to win his third straight start. The 46-year-old Moyer tied Carl Hubbell for 42nd on the all-time list with his 253rd career win. The NL East-leading Phillies have taken the first two games against the rival Mets to win just their third series at home and first against a team other than the lowly Washington Nationals. The defending World Series champions have been awful at Citizens Bank Park, going 15-22. They were 18 in their previous homestand.

Nationals 5, Braves 3 WASHINGTON

Atlanta’s Tommy Hanson extended his scoreless innings streak to 26 before Adam Dunn’s 300th career homer, and the Nationals rallied for four eighth-inning runs and a victory against the Braves. Hanson departed with a 31 lead after seven innings and was in line for his fifth straight victory before the Braves bullpen blew up, halting Atlanta’s winning streak at a season-high five. Mike Gonzalez (3-1) loaded the bases in the eighth on a pinch-hit single by Ronnie Belliard and a pair of walks before Peter Moylan relieved and yielded a two-run, game-tying single to Ryan Zimmerman.







The Minnesota Twins’ Justin Morneau connects on a double in the third inning against the Detroit Tigers. The Twins defeated the Tigers, 4-3, at the Metrodome in Minneapolis on Saturday.

D-backs 11, Rockies 7 DENVER

Pinch-hitter Chris Young hit a tiebreaking, three-run double to cap a six-run eighth inning, helping Arizona end its threegame skid. Stephen Drew finished a single shy of the cycle, and Mark Reynolds hit a solo homer for the Diamondbacks. After Chad Tracy and Felipe Lopez walked, Young cleared the bases with a deep double off reliever Joel Peralta (0-2).

Powers gives it up for troops


ob Powers is hard to miss when he’s on the job. He was the man behind the microphone Saturday during the annual Fourth of July Parade. The event seemed to feature virtually anything that could walk, drive or roll down Lincoln Avenue. There were dozens of horses, a bunch of fancy cars, children with water guns and even a woman with a camel. Whether it was llamas, roller skiers, donkeys or elephants (the Democratic Party fielded one float, and the area’s conservatives drummed up several), Powers welcomed them to Steamboat’s largest stage with the same enthusiasm, bellowing his greetings up and down the town’s main street. Still, Powers always held something back, something that he poured on whenever there was a chance to salute America’s military forces. Powers was the brain behind the Ridn4Warriors junior bull-riding event that opened the weekend’s rodeo performances. It included bull riding, one of the rodeo’s most popular and thrilling events. It included young riders — think calf scramble on steroids. And it included the troops. There were six riders each night, and each was assigned a branch of the military — Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and Veterans Affairs. But the teenage daredevils didn’t just ride for their respective branches. Before the competition started, each stood in the ring and read the story of a serviceman from that branch who was killed or injured in battle. The rodeo is a patriotic event anyway, so parading a bunch of junior bull riders across the ring to represent the country’s fighting men is already icing on the cake. The tribute to specific soldiers was even better. But when it comes to the troops, that’s how Rob Powers does business. “He’s a very energetic guy,” rodeo announcer John Shipley said. “He produced this whole thing.” Of course, Powers’ commitment didn’t end Saturday as the rodeo lights dimmed. Powers is getting ready to board a plane tomorrow for a trip to Iraq. Powers, a veteran himself, will travel with astronaut Sandra Magnus, Olympic gold medalist Frank Shorter and Runner’s World Chief Running Officer Bart Yasso to tour seven Middle East bases where U.S. military forces are stationed. Talk to Powers for a few minutes, and his decision to travel to Iraq comes as little surprise. The guy has traveled the world and been the man behind the microphone for some for some of the largest marathons. But it’s easy to tell how important his work helping draw attention to the troops is to him. The Ridn4Warriors tribute didn’t try to solicit donations or ram politics down anyone’s through. Powers doesn’t work like that. He’s just a man with a spotlight who is willing to do anything he can to shine it on those risking their lives for our country.


Almost as if a careful gardener planted them, batches of arnicas line the Tepee Creek Trail near Lynx Pass in southeastern Routt County. The yellow flower is abundant on the trail, which takes hikers and bikers four miles into the wilderness over rolling hills to the confluence of the babbling Tepee and the slightly larger Rock Creek. A thick roof of lodgepole pines (some alive, some victims of the beetle infestation) and thick aspen groves cover the majority. Still, plenty of wide meadows split the hike up, offering picture-perfect places to camp.

The four miles in between the finish and Lynx PassSTORY BY area trailhead, howJOEL contain REICHENBERGER ever, a just-difficult-enough hike through rolling terrain. Sections soar up along ridges, and others swing down through valleys. The trail flows along the bubbling Tepee Creek and into a collection of wide meadows, and after a hard afternoon of hiking, it can prove plenty rewarding.

Tepee Creek Trail short on views, long on beauty


Under cover The Tepee Creek Trail doesn’t offer the widest variety of terrain as far as Routt County-area hikes go. Still, there are plenty of different things to see along the way. One constant, though, is trees. Much of the four-hour hike takes places under a thick canopy of bristly lodgepole pines and leafy aspens. For the most part, that’s a good thing, especially on a warm summer day. The sun pokes through where it can, casting a few long fingers of light through the otherwise dark forest. The mountain pine beetle has taken a toll here, and plenty of work obviously has gone into mitigating the risk to hikers. Recently cut down trees lie along the trail throughout the pine sections of the hike. Still, for every freshly felled orange blight, several still stand, rotting in place. The bug hasn’t ruined the experience, however. About half the pines still are green and healthy and the dark,


A meadow awaits beyond a thick stand of aspens on the Tepee Creek Trail. The track cuts through forests of all variety: living, dead, pine and aspen. It also includes several wide open expanses on the shores of Tepee Creek.

damp ground is covered with saplings racing to fill the holes left by the beetle kill. The trail also winds through healthy aspen groves, the stark white trees growing tight against the narrow trail. Not all the trail’s fallen trees are the work of chainsaws or pine beetles, however. Neatly carved stumps, shorn to a point about a foot off the ground, stand as proof that beavers are healthy and active in the area. Another 200-yard section early in the hike is flanked on both sides by the remnants of a massive blow down and successive logging operation.

Something different The trail can take as much or as little time as necessary. A common turnaround point is four miles in, where Tepee Creek meets with Rock Creek. A log carefully placed over the still-rushing Rock Creek shows there’s further to go, however. Still, the eight miles to get there and back is plenty enough to wear out the average hiker, and the hike takes about four hours to complete. The trip

into the forest has a few more uphill stretches, but both out and back are fairly balanced. There’s nothing overly steep and no treacherous downhills, either. There’s also no shortage of open meadows, which often feature small ponds, to break up the forest stretches. The trail also crosses several small streams, and after about two miles, the Tepee itself. The streams are easy to get across with one or two careful steps on well-placed rocks. A log makes for a handy bridge across the Tepee. It takes only a moment of balance, and a hiker is never further than a short jump from either shore. Near the end of the fourmile trip out, the trail intersects the Rock Creek Trail, a much wider thoroughfare. Continue past it another 400 yards to reach the turnaround. There’s nothing that makes

Tepee Creek Trail What: An eight-mile roundtrip out-andback hike Where: The trailhead is located near the southeastern edge of Routt County on Routt County Road 16, a little less than 20 miles southeast of Stagecoach Reservoir. From Steamboat Springs, head east on U.S. Highway 40. Turn south toward Oak Creek on Colorado Highway 131 and drive 4.3 miles to Routt County Road 14. Turn left and continue 7.3 miles, just past Stagecoach Reservoir to Country Road 16. Turn left again and drive one mile. Take another left at Sagebrush Trail Road, and drive for 18 miles.

take a hard left on to Forest Service Road 263. Pull over at the first hard right turn in the road, and the trailhead is on the left. What to expect: The trail can be exhausting but poses no technical challenges, so anyone feeling up to an eightmile round trip (or shorter, if hikers opt to turn around early) can tackle Tepee Creek. There are several tough uphill sections, but nothing a few short breaks can’t help anyone overcome. Be sure to pack the sunscreen and the bug spray. The mosquitoes can get nasty, especially in the afternoon and early evening. The sunny, wide meadows make the trail an ideal place to pack along a picnic lunch. Plenty of horse and mountain bike tracks indicate the trail sees a wide range of users, though it wasn’t at all crowded on a warm weekday afternoon.

Theater in the sun

Picnic-style performances put new spins on productions Margaret Hair



The Great American Laughing Stock Co. isn’t interested in offering a typical night at the theater. The group’s attitude toward theater is one that brings it out of the box and onto the yard. Most shows in a three-week run of the company’s second annual Picnic Theatre Festival are set in Spring Creek Park and other outdoor venues, “It’s not a traditional envi-

ronment, it’s not a traditional theater approach. It’s not a traditional theater company, for that matter; it never has been,” said Stuart Handloff, founder and director of the festival and longtime Steamboat Springs theater community member. Starting Friday, the Picnic Theatre Festival presents free performances of three works, featuring actors from Steamboat Springs and six transplants from New Zealand, where Handloff recently earned a graduate degree in directing. The goal is “to get theater

out of the box, to raise the quality and artistic level of performing arts in the community, and to figure out a way that we can exchange the cultures of Steamboat Springs and New Zealand,” Handloff said. That premise has grown stronger as the festival gains community roots and involvement, he said. “It’s just a stronger connection, I think, all the way around,” Handloff said. JOHN F. RUSSELL/STAFF Picnic Theatre will hold on to its original location at Spring Kirsty Peters plays Audrey Rose during a rehearsal for “Eccentricities of a See Theater, page 2D

The pill problem Physicians weigh risk of drug abuse vs. benefits


he going price for prescription pills in Steamboat Springs is $1 per milligram of painkiller or antidepressant, local physicians say, warning that the abuse of prescription drugs is rising. Police say the trend is STORY BY noticeable ZACH FRIDELL but not overwhelming in Steamboat. Most visibly, the search for prescription drugs led to the March 16 arrest of a 23-yearold man suspected of burglary at Lyon’s Corner Drug, a downtown pharmacy. Police said the man dropped bottles of a prescription painkiller when he was taken into custody. Doctors and police report that drug-seeking behavior, and the addiction that drives it, is becoming an increasing concern in Steamboat. Steamboat Springs Police Department Capt. Joel Rae said determining the extent of abuse in Steamboat is tricky for several reasons. The department keeps track of drug arrests by the classification of the substance — Schedule 3 substances include codeine, anabolic steroids, testosterone and some depressants, for example — not by whether the medication is prescribed. It’s also harder to detect people who are abusing prescription drugs, Rae said. “I think we hear a lot more than we see. I know that we have great concern for the youth in our community pertaining to prescription drugs, and it is becoming a drug of choice,” he said. Rae said that there occasionally have been reports of prescription drug abuse in

Harrington said the most important part of prescriptions is monitoring patients closely and that the important role of medication as a treatment should not be overlooked.

Steamboat schools and that the frequency has been increasing throughout the past several years. “We hear rumors through the high school and even the middle school at one point last year,” he said. “We’ve had rumors of kids taking drugs and selling them to their friends.” School Resource Officer Josh Carrell, who works in Steamboat Springs High School, said he has learned about prescription drug abuse and how to spot it through training, but he does not regularly find that kind of drug abuse at the high school. “I did have at least a few cases this year,” he said, adding that it was not a continu-

al problem. “The more common (drugs) are obviously alcohol and marijuana,” he said. Dr. Dawn Obrecht, who specializes in addiction medicine in Steamboat, said she has seen a great deal of abuse across town. “It’s a small resort town, there are a lot of children of the ’60s, flower children and their children,” she said. Obrecht said the problem stems from doctors in town who give medications too easily, including those who issue refills without seeing the patients. “Out of a very small number of doctors, there are a few who prescribe very, very inappropriately,” she said. “Every addict in town knows who they are.” Pain management specialist

Dr. Brian Siegel said the doctors may not be as diligent as they should, but he does not see the rampant abuse Obrecht described. “Yeah, there are some physicians who may give the medications easier, but who’s to say they’re not making adjustments?” he said. Siegel said he doesn’t think there are “bad doctors” in Steamboat who prescribe inappropriately. “Some (doctors) will just give medication and may not be as diligent on following up on how patients are using it,” he said.

Michael Mow and his wife, Jo Ann, are aiming to make their house 90 percent more efficient than the 2006 International Energy Conservation Code, with extra insulation and enough solar power generation to produce as much energy as it uses throughout the year. The Mows’ 4,495-square-foot house, perched at the end of an

Those panels will work to heat the water and in-floor heating throughout the home, while an extra photovoltaic set of panels, to be installed outside, will take care of the home’s other energy needs.

The shows play well to most age groups, directors said. In its second year, the festival features three productions: a version of William Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew” that’s part English, part Samoan; an original play by local author Dagny McKinley tracking a day in the life of her JOHN F.

Autrey: Community health fair will have drug drop-off Pills continued from 1D Obrecht said such medications should be prescribed on a short-term, limited basis. Prescriptions that are most commonly abused, she said, are those that contain benzodiazepine — such as Xanax, Valium and Ativan — and narcotics. Benzodiazepine is a sedating tranquilizer taken to counter disorders including anxiety and insomnia. Siegel agreed with Obrecht that there is a problem of prescription drug abuse, but he disagreed that the problem in Steamboat is any larger than in other parts of the country. Doctors often are put in a hard position, he said, because patients often feel entitled to pain medication as a part of their treatment, and doctors are obligated to treat their patients appropriately. “Patients … have this sense of entitlement for their pain, whether it’s a real problem or a perceived problem,” he said. “If we don’t treat, we can be sued for under-treatment.” On the other side of the problem, Siegel said doctors “frequently get caught up in prescribing medication where it may not be appropriate.”

Learn more Ronna Autrey, a suicide prevention coordinator with Reaching Everyone Preventing Suicide, said a community health fair planned for Oct. 24 will have a drug drop-off station, to collect and dispose of unused prescription medication.

Siegel said doctors face a challenge in prescribing appropriately but that, that should not stop them from prescribing medications. Instead, he said, there are many ways to prescribe medication and monitor its use, including randomized urine analysis from patients to ensure that they are taking the medication instead of selling it and that they are not taking other medications not prescribed. “We’re testing five to 10 patients a week,” he said.


Addiction specialist Dawn Obrecht says some of her patients are dealing with addictions to prescription drugs.

“Almost every week, I’ll get (a test result) that shows something inconsistent.”

A place for prescriptions Dr. Brian Harrington, a Steamboat family physician, agreed with Siegel that the risk of abuse does not outweigh the benefits prescriptions can provide, even to addicts as they come down from highs. People who are known addicts are at especially high

risk of abusing the drugs used to help them come off of illegal drugs. “There can be a risk of abuse, because if a person is already abusing substances we are just trading one substance for another, but I don’t worry about abuse (right then),” Harrington said. “If somebody is going through alcohol withdrawal, we’re medically supposed to reduce the risks, which includes giving them some of these drugs.” Harrington said withdrawal can bring delerium tremens, a severe part of withdrawal that can be treated with the benzodiazepines. Harrington said the most important part of prescriptions is monitoring patients closely, and the important role of medication as a treatment should not be overlooked. “Ultimately what we’d like to do is to give everybody the tools to cope healthfully with stress and mental health problems in their life and to do that without a dependence on a substance,” he said. “I think that if any of us take an absolute position for or against the role of medication in treating these disorders, we’re probably doing a disservice from patients out there who could benefit from either stance.” To prevent children or other people from abusing drugs, Rae said, parents should be cautious with prescription drugs that are left over after their treatment no longer is needed. “The best advice I would give is if you have old medications at home, to flush them down the toilet or throw it away,” he said. Carrell agreed and said that his training taught him that home medicine cabinets are the most likely place students will get access to drugs. “A lot of people tend to hang onto prescriptions that they didn’t take all the way through, just to have them if something else comes up, especially pain relievers,” he said. “Make sure you get rid of those.” — To reach Zach Fridell, call 871-4208 or e-mail

Shawver: Too many Colorado people on relief

Karen Tait is pleased to announce the wedding of her daughter Lauren Tait to Layne Singleton on May 23, 2009. The wedding took place at St. Mary Catholic Church in Evansville, Ind., with a reception immediately following. The couple honeymooned at Disneyworld. The family was thrilled to have the following current and former Steamboat guests in attendance: Jessi Houston as bridesmaid; Beth Ludwig as speaker; Kyle Kuvin as usher; Joey Andrew; Travis Logan; Andrea Erickson; Amanda Hulslander; Stuart Handloff; Dan and Maureen Hulslander; and Ron and Sharon Spangler.

Declaring that 20 percent of the state’s population now is on relief and expressing belief that many people are chiseling in accepting aid, State Relief Administration C.D. Shawver ordered closer investigation of applicants for help. In January of this year, Shawver said, 96,777 persons were on relief, and there now are 208,364 persons being helped. “It is imperative,” Shawver said, “that cities, communities and individual businesses do everything within their power to give employment. The federal government is insistent that everyone who really needs help will receive it, but it is just as insistent that those who can find outside support or employment in business are eliminated from the relief picture.”

Looking Back Articles from our archives

Vast throngs in town for big celebration Vast throngs of people were in Steamboat Springs on Wednesday to attend the big, free Fourth of July celebration sponsored by the businessmen of Steamboat Springs and arranged and carried out by the members of the Leo Hill Post of the American Legion. The rodeo grounds, recently made more attractive by an artistic entryway constructed of cobblestones, were packed with spectators. The program was snappy and well carried out. Hundreds enjoyed swimming and bathing at the spa, beautiful in its new improvements. The Chief Theater had large audiences, The Chieftain ballroom was jammed, and restaurants rushed to keep service going. Perhaps the most important feature of the celebration was the music of the recently organized Steamboat band, which is making wonderful progress under the direction of its new leader, Gerald McGuire. Good band music puts pep in any public gathering. Appearing first in the fine parade, the band played also during the rodeo program and gave a concert in the evening.

Around the county



News from South Routt’s Lila Rider and Hayden’s Laurie Hallenbeck

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

Oak Creek/Phippsburg Compiled by Lila Rider

A celebration week At the Doak Walker Care Center, all the residents spent the last week getting primed for the Fourth of July, and the buffet that accompanies it.

�������� �����������������������

Carol Rickman’s son and daughter-in-law came Tuesday night to visit with her. Joann Lombardi’s daughter Bambi and her friend from Florida were in here visiting with Joann.



Maralyn Goggin was in Sunday to visit with Lila Rider. Jim Novak was in the Doak this past week, as well. He comes in practically every day to visit with friends. Phyllis Fulton’s son, from Hayden, was in here visiting with her. Juanita Davis has been having friends and family in to visit her, and it’s nice to see Darlene Cantrell’s daughter back after her accident, even if she is on crutches for a while longer.

Mr. and Mrs. Shively have been enjoying visits this week from their son and daughterin-law.

Out and about Bettie Pierce spent an evening this week out with her family, the Ed Pierce family. They had supper together and visited and had a great time.

Happy birthday A big happy birthday to Claris Reid, who celebrated her 93rd birthday in downtown Phippsburg.

Bridge This week, the bridge players have been out in full force playing. In fact, everybody has been enjoying the patio, with its beautiful flowers and nice weather through most of the week. We have had visitors out there nearly every day.

Nurses’ aides We’ve also enjoyed two weeks of nurses’ aides in training from Craig in here working with us.

Joke of the week: This woman went to her doctor’s office, and the doctor asked, “How tall are you?’

She said she was 5 feet, 7 inches tall. Well, the doctors measured her, and she was only 5 feet tall. So the doctor asked, “How much do you weigh?” The woman told her doctor she was 120 pounds. She stepped on the scale, and the doctor said, “Actually, you’re 140 pounds.” Then it came time for the blood pressure reading. The doctor strapped on the cuff and stared at the numbers. He said “My, why is your blood pressure so high?” She stared at him and said, “Why do you think? I came in here a tall, thin woman, and you made me short and fat!”

Mow House architect Andy Johnson, left, describes the Stagecoach home’s greenhouse to, from right, Matt Piva, Johnny Sawyer and Ryan Thompson on Tuesday during a construction site tour.

Green code adopted in ’08 House continued from 1D than just insulation or solar panels. “We’re trying to minimize the imputed energy for imports. We’d like to have a granite countertop, but that has to come from China or India,” he said. Instead, the Mows will use concrete, quartz and sorghum-based countertops from Colorado. They plan to recycle or reuse 90 percent of construction waste, and beetle-killed lumber already is in place in some of the ceiling elements and soon will be installed in more. “We’re not reaching for any one tool or component to be the magic bullet,” Michael Mow said. Chad Feagler, of Mountain Energy Consultants, said the strength of the house is how well all the elements work together: solar panels, passive solar, concrete insulation, extra wall insulation and more. “This is sort of the way building is going to be going in the next few years,” he said. Feagler has been working with the Mows to monitor and verify the energy sav-

ings from each of the home’s components. Andy Johnson, the Louisville architect who designed most of the energysaving items in the house, said the effort to be a green house added 7 percent to the overall home building cost, but that cost may be recouped in energy savings. Johnson said the amount of time to recover the cost will be discovered after the home is complete and tested. The city of Steamboat Springs and Routt County jointly adopted a green building code in 2008. To meet the green code’s standards, a home must be at least 20 percent more energy efficient than a home built to standard code, and a checklist is designed to help homeowners determine what steps they should take to create a home that has energy efficiency, resource conservation and good indoor environmental quality. The benefits for complying with the voluntary green code stem from the benefits of the construction: increased comfort, a healthier home and higher resale value.
