On her fourth and final day of testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, U.S. Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor continued to emphasize a judge’s responsibility to apply the law to the facts, rather than make political decisions. That sounds great theoretically, The New York Times’ Supreme Court reporter Adam

■ LOTTO Thursday night’s Cash 5 numbers: 1-3-6-24-25 Drawings are held Monday through Saturday.

Liptak told a Steamboat Springs audience Thursday evening, but we have reason to be skeptical. Liptak spoke at the first installment of this year’s Seminars at Steamboat lecture series. He said the Supreme Court grew markedly more polarized in its most recent term, with conservative and liberal justices lining up against one another in 5-4 and 6-3 votes in about half of the court’s decisions. If the justices are objectively

applying the law to the facts, Liptak said, “then why do they keep doing it in a predictably different way?” Liptak said the court under Chief Justice John Roberts is beginning to come of age and find its identity, which is a conservative one. Justices Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito “appear ready to move,” Liptak said. “The question is whether the swing justice, Anthony Kennedy, is ready to move with them.” Liptak noted that Kennedy

voted in the majority 95 percent of the time in the most recent term and sided with the conservatives in about twice as many cases. Because Sotomayor will replace liberal Justice David Souter if confirmed by the Senate, she will not tip the balance of the court, Liptak said. And because liberal justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and John Paul Stevens are the most likely to retire next, President Barack Obama may not get a chance See Liptak, page 14

Justice delayed is justice denied

T

he expression “justice delayed is justice denied” is a cliché, but it’s nonetheless proving true with the glacial pace of the prosecution of Eduardo and David Capote for their suspected roles in the Jan. 2, 2009, death of Sgt. 1st Class Richard Lopez in downtown Steamboat Springs. Although it’s galling that 14th Judicial District Attorney Elizabeth Oldham charged the Capotes with only assault instead of manslaughter or murder — as the police suggested and every right-minded person knows was appropriate — the failure of Routt County Judge James Garrecht to keep this case moving forward adds insult to death. The key dates in the history of the Lopez case are: ■ Jan. 2, 2009: The Capotes are suspected of fighting with Lopez and two of his friends at Seventh Street and Lincoln Avenue. Lopez suffers severe head trauma from hitting his head on the pavement and is unconscious when taken by ambulance to the hospital. ■ Jan. 5: Lopez dies from his injuries. ■ Feb. 18: District Attorney Oldham receives the case from

police after a seven-week investigation. ■ March 23: Oldham files assault charges against the Capotes after reviewing the police investigation for five weeks. ■ June 24: David Capote appears before Judge Garrecht, but his case is delayed until July 15 to allow more time for Capote’s attorney, Charles Feldmann, to conduct discovery. Garrecht raises the issue of combining David and Eduardo Capote’s cases into one trial with Feldmann (who represents both of the Capote brothers) and prosecutors. ■ July 2: Garrecht delays Eduardo Capote’s case until Aug. 7 to allow more time for Feldman to conduct discovery. ■ July 15: Garrecht again delays David Capote’s case, this time until Aug. 7. Garrecht again discusses combining the Capote brothers’ cases but makes no decision.

Given that the next court date for the Capote brothers is Aug. 7, it will be more than eight months since Lopez lay dying on a cold Steamboat street before the Capotes are even in the starting blocks in Garrecht’s courtroom. That is unconscionable. The Steamboat Springs Police Department worked diligently and appropriately in conducting a seven-week investigation spanning thousands of miles and interviewing dozens of witnesses in order to gather evidence to present to the District Attorney’s Office. For Oldham to take five weeks to review the police investigation and determine what charges to file is mindboggling. But what is really troubling is Garrecht’s inability to move this case any further than he has in the almost five months between when the Capotes were charged and when they will next appear in court. Five months. Five months, and Garrecht hasn’t even decided whether to combine the Capotes’ cases into one trial — typically regarded See Douglas, page 13

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

If the day arrives when Steamboat 700 helps the city of Steamboat Springs build a new public safety building, the downtown police department would move west but not as far west as the proposed annexation. Deputy City Manager Wendy DuBord confirmed this week that the city remains focused on acquiring a 5-acre piece of property, immediately west of the Routt County Jail, from the Kline family. The city has designated a new police headquarters as a highpriority project. The Steamboat Springs City Council said Tuesday that Steamboat 700 could contribute significantly to the new police headquarters, rather than contribute smaller amounts to every project on the city’s capital improvement plan. In the current 700 proposal, all of the development’s building and use taxes would be channeled to Steamboat 700’s needs. But City Council acknowl-

Routt County Commissioners delayed taking action Tuesday on a proposal from Ty Lockhart to develop duplexes on land originally platted for an athletic

field at Heritage Park. The conceptual planned unit development amendment would convert a 1.89-acre parcel along U.S. Highway 40, platted in 1997 for a soccer field, into three duplexes and 0.4 acres of open space. The land was platted as an athletic field — as were

four other parcels there — to be preserved from development and for use by homeowners of Heritage Park. Two parcels were developed as soccer fields and were leased for 20 years to the city of Steamboat See Heritage, page 13

COMMENTARY

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

White man’s last stand Maureen Dowd

THE NEW YORK TIMES

You can’t judge a judge by her cover. Despite the best efforts of Republicans to root out any sign that Sonia Sotomayor has emotions that color her views on the law, the Bronx Bomber kept a robotic mask in place. A wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not know that a gaggle of white Dowd Republican men afraid of extinction are out to trip her up. After all, these guys never have needed to speak inspirational words to others like them, as Sotomayor has done. They’ve had codes, handshakes and clubs to do that. So when Republican Sen. Jon Kyl,

without so much as a howdy-do, went at Sotomayor, and soon was asking her whether she agreed with Barack Obama’s contention, when he voted against John Roberts, that a judge’s heart is important, the would-be justice was as adroit as her idol Nancy Drew. “No, sir,” she said, indicating that the only bleeding-heart thing about her was the color of her jacket. She added that “it’s not the heart that compels conclusions in cases. It’s the law.” Obama wants Sotomayor, naturally, to bring a fresh perspective to the court. It was a disgrace that W. appointed two white men to a court stocked with white men. And Sotomayor made it clear that she provides some spicy seasoning to a bench when she said in a speech: “I simply do not know exactly what the difference will be in my judging, but I accept there will be some based on gender and my Latina heritage.”

The judge’s full retreat from the notion that a different life experience is valuable was more than necessary and somewhat disappointing. But, as any clever job applicant knows, you must obscure as well as reveal, so she sidestepped the dreaded empathy questions — even though that’s why the president wants her. “We apply law to facts,” she told Kyl. “We don’t apply feelings to facts.” Republican Lindsey Graham read Sotomayor some anonymous comments made by lawyers about her, complaining that she was “temperamental,” “nasty,” “a bit of a bully.” Then he patronizingly lectured her about how this was the moment for “self-reflection.” But the barbed adjectives didn’t match the muted performance on display before the Judiciary Committee. See Dowd, page 9

Will the defendant please rise? Ann Coulter

UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Every time a Democrat senator has talked during the Senate hearings on Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor this week, I felt lousy about my country. Not for the usual reasons when a Democrat talks but because Democrats revel in telling us what a racist country this is. Interestingly, the Democrats’ examples of ethnic prejudice did Coulter not include Clarence Thomas, whose nomination hearings began with the Democrats saying, “You may now uncuff the defendant.” Their examples did not include Miguel Estrada, the brilliant Harvardeducated lawyer who was blocked

MALLARD FILLMORE

from an appellate court judgeship by Senate Democrats expressly on the grounds that he is a Hispanic — as stated in Democratic staff memos that became public. No, they had to go back to Roger Taney — confirmed in 1836 — who was allegedly attacked for being a Catholic (and who authored the Dred Scott decision), and Louis Brandeis — confirmed in 1916 — allegedly a victim of anti-Semitism. Indeed, Sen. Patrick Leahy lied about Estrada’s nomination, blaming it on Republicans: “He was not given a hearing when the Republicans were in charge. He was given a hearing when the Democrats were in charge.” The Republicans were “in charge” for precisely 14 days between Estrada’s nomination May 9, 2001, and May 24, 2001, when Sen. Jim Jeffords switched parties, giving Democrats control of the Senate. The Democrats then

refused to hold a hearing on Estrada’s nomination for about 480 days, shortly before the 2002 election. Even after Republicans won back a narrow majority in 2003, Estrada was blocked “by an extraordinary filibuster mounted by Senate Democrats” — as The New York Times put it. Memos from the Democratic staff of the Judiciary Committee later were unearthed, revealing that they considered Estrada “especially dangerous” — as stated in a memo by a Sen. Dick Durbin staffer — because “he is Latino and the White House seems to be grooming him for a Supreme Court appointment.” Sandy Berger wasn’t available to steal back the memos, so Durbin ordered Capitol Police to seize the documents from Senate computer servers and lock them in a police vault.

Bush made bad decisions based on fear Like the president who picked her, Sotomayor has been a model of professorial rationality. Besides, it’s delicious watching Republicans go after Democrats for being too emotional and irrational given the GOP shame spiral. W. and Dick Cheney made all their bad decisions about Iraq, WMDs, domestic surveillance, torture, rendition and secret hit squads from the gut, based on false intuitions, fear,

paranoia and revenge. Sarah Palin is the definition of irrational, a volatile and scattered country-music queen without the music. Her Republican fans defend her lack of application and intellect, happy to settle for her emotional electricity. Graham said Sotomayor would be confirmed unless she had “a meltdown” — a word applied mostly to women and toddlers until Mark Sanford proudly took ownership of it when he was

judged about the wisdom of his Latina woman. And then there’s the Supreme Court, of course, which gave up its claim to rational neutrality when the justices appointed by Republican presidents — including Bush Sr. — ignored what was fair to make a sentimental choice and throw the 2000 election to W. Faced with that warped case of supreme empathy, no wonder Sotomayor is so eager to follow the law.

Dems treat judicial nominations like war Coulter continued from 8 Led by Sens. Leahy and Chuck Schumer, Democrats ferociously opposed Estrada, who would have been the first Hispanic to sit on the influential U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. They were so determined to keep him off the Supreme Court that Leahy and Schumer introduced legislation at one point to construct a fence around Estrada’s house. In frustration, Estrada finally

withdrew his name Sept. 5, 2003. At the time, liberal historian David Garrow predicted that if the Democrats blocked Estrada, they would be “handing Bush a campaign issue to use in the Hispanic community.” So when Republicans treat Sotomayor with respect and Sen. Lindsey Graham says his “hope” is that “if we ever get a conservative president and they nominate someone who has an equal passion on the other side, that we will not forget this moment,” I think

it’s a lovely speech. But Democrats treat judicial nominations like war — while Republicans keep being gracious, hoping Democrats will learn by example. To the extent that the Sotomayor hearings have been less than civil, it is, again, liberals who have made it so, launching personal attacks against the ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee, Sen. Jeff Sessions, and even the fireman whose complaint started the Ricci case.

Everything about Davy Knowles seems little known, but nothing about him should be. The blues guitarist — already accomplished at the age of 22 — comes from the Isle of Man, a tiny island in the Irish Sea between Ireland and England. He said his biggest influence is Rory Gallagher, a relatively obscure Irish blues guitarist. And Knowles’ new album, “Coming Up for Air,” hasn’t hit mainstream radio, but it reached No. 2 on the Billboard Blues Chart last month and includes production from guitar legend Peter Frampton. Knowles plays the Old Town Pub at 10 p.m. today with his

band, Back Door Slam. He said people at the show can expect “lots of loud electric guitar but also some subtle moments — I think those are important, too.” Knowles and Back Door Slam played the pub in September 2008 after a gig at the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival. Tonight, they return to Steamboat Springs before a Saturday show at the Mile High Music Festival in Denver. Knowles said while

traveling Thursday that he’s excited to return to the ’Boat. “It’s a fun town to come back to,” he said in his relaxed British accent. “The people (at Old Town Pub) are so nice, and it’s such a great place to play.” This time around, Knowles is joined by new musicians. He’s parted ways with original Back Door Slam members Adam Jones and Ross Doyle, and now shares the stage with two Seattle musicians: a bassist known as P.K. and drummer Steven Barci. He said Jones and Doyle are incredible talents — the trio created the 2007 release “Roll Away” — but eventually, a change was in order. “It was just trying to do some-

Lockhart to consider possible changes Springs. The other three remain empty grass fields. However, in 2005, Great Outdoors Colorado granted $150,000 and the city provided $100,000 in matching funds to develop one of the parcels into a turf soccer field and youth baseball field. The neighborhood opposed the proposal, and the funds were returned. The Routt County Planning Commission on June 19 approved Lockhart’s new proposal, 5-2. The commissioners who voted in opposition of the proposal cited a desire to preserve the opportunity for additional fields. Commissioners said the five parcels originally were approved as athletic fields for use by Heritage Park homeowners because the neighborhood itself contained no open space. The county requires that 25 percent of all planned unit developments be “useable open space.” Routt County Commissioner Doug Monger expressed concern that by approving Lockhart’s requested amendment, the remaining open space, still platted for use as athletic fields, would someday be developed as duplexes. Because the open space parcels were owned by Lockhart and not overseen publicly by the Heritage Park homeowners association or the Steamboat II Metropolitan District, which maintains recreation areas in Steamboat II and Silver Spur subdivisions, Commissioner Nancy Stahoviak reiterated Monger’s concern for future residential development. “This subdivision could end up with no place to recreate, and that wasn’t the intent of the county when it approved the open space policy,” she said. The proposal also concerned some Heritage Park residents. Lee Pierson, a member of

the neighborhood’s homeowners association, is opposed to Lockhart’s proposal, he said Thursday. Pierson said there are still some potential options for the open space parcels, such as turning them over to the Steamboat II Metro District for public recreational use. “I think it’s premature to give up on those plans,” he said. Pierson said he opposed the development of the turf soccer field and youth baseball field in 2005 because the proposal didn’t fit with the original planned unit development that commissioners approved in 1997. Other reasons for opposing that plan were that homeowners weren’t consulted, and there wasn’t a buffer between the fields and the neighborhood, he said. Stahoviak added Tuesday that the only way she could approve Lockhart’s request was if the other parcels were dedicated “in perpetuity or long term” as open space and given to public entities closely related to the subdivision. Lockhart said his proposal met the county’s open space requirement and reminded commissioners that the surrounding open space parcels still were platted as athletic fields. If he or someone else wanted to develop those into something else, they would have to come before the Planning Commission and county commissioners for approval, Lockhart said. He said he wasn’t prepared to accept the commissioners’ condition to keep the open spaces as such in perpetuity because the needs of the community could change. “I thought at that time, there was a need for athletic fields,” Lockhart said about the neighborhood’s development in 1997. “Now there isn’t.” Lockhart also said keeping control over certain open space

It’s time to ensure justice Douglas continued from 2 as a no-brainer decision in legal circles. As reported by the Steamboat Today, Oldham argued before Garrecht during Wednesday’s hearing that combining the cases would be appropriate because they are part of the same incident and involve similar evidence and many of the same witnesses, some who are serving in the military overseas. Oldham is correct in that assessment. Frankly, this is not a difficult case as criminal cases go. But, it is witness-intensive, and the

defense knows it. Therefore, the longer the Capotes can delay the proceedings, the harder it will be for the prosecution to bring its witnesses to trial and the foggier the witnesses’ memories will be if and when they get to trial. Therein lies the truth that justice delayed is indeed justice denied. The Capote brothers’ goal is to delay this case in an effort to deny justice. It is time that Judge Garrecht ensures that justice is not denied because of delay. To reach Rob Douglas, e-mail Rob.Douglas@Comcast.net

parcels would allow him to require certain amenities, like paved parking lots, if they were developed as athletic fields. Commissioners delayed the discussion until Aug. 11 to give Lockhart time to consider three options: whether to change his proposal to include long-term assurances that the open space parcels would remain open, do nothing or withdraw his request. If he elected not to change the proposal, it would be up to commissioners to approve or deny. Lockhart said he would think about it. — To reach Jack Weinstein, call 871-4203 or e-mail jweinstein@steamboatpilot.com

to swing the court to the left, Liptak said. Asked by an audience member if it is a flaw that the court is trending right at a time when the nation as whole seems to be drifting left, Liptak said the framers of the Constitution probably intended for the court to be a “lagging indicator.” “That probably was part of the framers’ vision,” he said. “What the framers probably didn’t envision is how long people would live.” Although Sotomayor may not turn the tide of the court, Liptak said history shows that as a woman and the court’s first Hispanic justice, she will “have an impact just by showing up.” Liptak said the court’s first black justice, Thurgood Marshall, forced the court to think differently about race issues. “If Thurgood Marshall is in

With $5 in his pocket and a 12-foot cross on his back, James Strickland left Longview, Texas, on foot 11 weeks ago hoping to make his way to Aberdeen, Wash. The only other things he had with him were determination and a cell phone to call family. “I’m walking for the Lord,” Strickland said. “It’s a sign of obedience. I was in a pretty deep pit, and it was something I needed.” In Aberdeen, Wash., Strickland plans to meet with his 3year-old daughter and 4-yearold son, whom he hasn’t seen since November. He hopes to stay there to be close to his children. Late Tuesday afternoon, Strickland made his way into Craig and stopped at the Westward Motel where he met Diane Kalsow, the manager. “He came in and asked for a room at the lowest price I could give him, and when he told me what he was doing, of course I gave him the room for free,”

The needs generated by Steamboat 700 at build-out include more than desks for patrol officers, Rae said. The addition of officers increases the need for records personnel and detectives, for example. And the combined addition of full-time employees also increases the need for parking at the police station. Hays said current police department staffing includes 24 sworn officers and 17 non-sworn personnel. Staffing would need to be increased by eight patrol officers, one detective, a school resource officer and two support people as a result of the development of Steamboat 700, he said.

City Council members agreed in principle Tuesday to phase the need to build new public facilities as new neighborhoods at Steamboat 700 receive their final plat, and with it, the go-ahead to begin selling home lots. A yetto-be decided number of homes at 700 would represent a trigger point for constructing the new public safety building. The city hired a consultant to evaluate the existing public safety building at 840 Yampa St., and the best alternative site, in 2000. The 1980s-era building comprises 12,600 square feet, compared to a need of about 26,484 square feet plus expanded parking. The recent Hays memo concluded that his

department could make do with a smaller building than 26,000 square feet if it had to. The report concluded the Kline property west of the jail was superior to either of two sites at Steamboat Springs Airport. The primary reason was the availability of access and the distance from downtown. However, because of wetlands on the rear of the site, the Kline property does not afford space for future expansion, the consultants added. DuBord said the city previously sought an energy impact grant to help it acquire the Kline property but was not funded because the application was viewed as “land banking” for a future need.

Farmers Union’s Carbon Credit Program allows agricultural producers and landowners to earn income by storing carbon in their soil through no-till crop production, longterm grass seeding practices, native rangeland enhancement, forestry and methane capture projects. The Farmers Union has earned approval from the Chicago Climate Exchange to aggregate carbon credits to allow smaller units of acreages to combine together into blocks of credit that can be traded on the Exchange. Once the credits are sold, producers earn income based on the acres they have enrolled. Check out the carbon credit program at www. nfu.org.

Breckenridge cuts services $3 million shortfall possible in public works, recreation, replanting Robert Allen

SUMMIT DAILY NEWS

BRECKENRIDGE

More cuts are under way for the town of Breckenridge as officials work to absorb an estimated $2 million to $3 million revenue shortfall for 2009. Town Council gave the nod Tuesday to another $1.08 million of trimming in about five departments without making any layoffs — rather, some positions are being eliminated through attrition, said town spokeswoman Kim DiLallo. The total savings, including cuts made during the past several months, is estimated at about $2.7 million relative to the 2009 budget. Cuts include $200,000 to a replanting program, $146,132 to public works and $350,000 to a range of recreation expenses including elimination of outdoor education programs, bus service and reduction of all facilities’ hours, among others. Town financial-services manager Brian Waldes said the

It’s safe to say that PerryMansfield Performing Arts School and Camp’s production of “Machinal” will be unlike anything you will find on TV, at the rodeo or anywhere else in Steamboat Springs this weekend. “It’s like a living nightmare,” said Director of Theatre Victor Maog, who said the expressionistic 1928 play by Sophie Treadwell synchronizes language, movement, music and sound with a harrowing storyline. “It is very, very, very much a fusion experience. … I think that’s why it’s become a landmark play in a time when plays are supposed to be real with four walls.” “Machinal” is the story of a woman named Helen Jones, who suffers in the dull and

It’s been a few years since The Greyboy Allstars made a stop here, but don’t expect any radical changes from the funk and jazz group at tonight’s second installment of the Steamboat Springs Free Summer Concert Series at Howelsen Hill. “We’re pretty much on autopilot right now as far as what we do. We just try to do it better and get better every day,” said influential, all-star saxophonist Karl Denson, the band’s leader. “We’ve been together for a long time now. … We’re just trying to develop a consistency in terms of what we do and just do more of it.” The performance could, however, include some new songs from The Greyboy Allstars. Denson said the fivepiece band is four songs into a new album and may take a couple of the tunes for a test drive in Steamboat. Denson said the new album will be mostly similar to The Greyboy Allstars’ previous work: relaxed, danceable funk-jazz mixtures. See Concert, page 27

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

When asked to whom he would compare his sound, hiphop artist Lyrics Born answered without hesitation. “Nobody,” the Californiabased, Japan-born artist said Thursday. “There’s absolutely nobody on the planet who’s doing what I’m doing right now. … I can say that with absolute honesty.” The confident Lyrics Born has experience to back up that kind of statement. He’s toured internationally for several years and collaborated with some big names: KRS-One, Blackalicious’ Gift of Gab, Chali 2na of Jurassic 5 and Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, to name a few. Lyrics Born plays at the Ghost Ranch Saloon at 9

p.m. today. He’s bringing a keyboardist, bassist, drummer and guitarist, and will be backed by vocals from his wife, Bay Area recording artist Joyo Velarde. The big instrumental backing plays to two of Lyrics Born’s self-described strengths — experimentation and an energetic live show.

“I’m not trying to do what everybody else is doing — everybody else seems to be copying themselves,” he said, citing a singularity of producers and patterns in the industry. “I’m definitely trying to be more experimental.” Lyrics Born’s Steamboat Springs show comes between the release of “The Variety Show — Season Pho’,” a mix-tape-style recording, and production on his next studio album, “As U Were,” which Lyrics Born said should be released in March 2010. He said local hip-hop fans can expect a good time tonight at the Ghost Ranch. “I’ve got the whole band — it’s a lot of fun,” Lyrics Born said. “It’s just a major, major party.” — To reach Mike Lawrence, call 871-4233 or e-mail mlawrence@steamboatpilot.com

Letterman gets big late-night win David Bauder

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK

There could be a new king emerging in late-night TV. David Letterman’s CBS “Late Show” whipped NBC’s “Tonight” show in the ratings last week by nearly 800,000 viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. Letterman generally lost to “Tonight” when Jay Leno was the host, and he hasn’t had this big a victory margin since returning from heart surgery in 2000. A late-night generation gap also appears to be emerging: the median age of O’Brien’s audience last week was more than 10 years

younger than Letterman’s. NBC says that’s good news, because advertisers pay a premium to reach youthful audiences. In the 18- to 49-year-old age demographic for which NBC sells advertising, O’Brien won each night last week, NBC said. Still, Letterman has won two of the past three weeks among all viewers during which both men competed with original programming. And the “Late Show” received another boost Wednesday with an attentiongetting appearance by Paul McCartney. “We feel we’ve got the momentum going for us right now, and we feel very confident,” said David Poltrack,

CBS’ chief researcher. He said network executives privately had been hoping that Letterman could gain ground against O’Brien and be able to take over first place in the fall. The situation still is fluid, but changes seems to be happening faster than they expected, Poltrack said. Significant numbers of the traditional late-night audience have made the switch, even though O’Brien continues to be very popular with young viewers who liked him when he was on a later time slot. Last week, Letterman averaged 3.68 million viewers, compared to O’Brien’s 2.82 million, Nielsen said.

Expect ‘good music’ Concert continued from 24 When asked what the audience should expect tonight, Denson replied “good music.” “I think that’s the best way to describe it,” he said. “It’s going to be good and enjoyable. That’s kind of the point.” Concert series co-founder Joe Kboudi had some advice for concertgoers: “Bring your dancing shoes.” “It’s a jam band with some real good horns and keyboards,” Kboudi said. “We just thought it would be great for the series because we wanted all the genres, and they have a big range. … They have a really good following, and for people who have never heard them before, they’re a good jam band.” The Greyboy Allstars are scheduled to take the stage at 7 p.m. The Pimps of Joytime will kick the show off at 6 p.m. Lead singer Brian J said the audience should expect “a funky good time” from the opening act. “We’re just going to have some fun and bring our interpretation of funk and soul to the people,” he said. The five-man band hails from Brooklyn, N.Y., where Brian J said they are exposed to several styles of music — from blues to afrobeat — that they try to blend together. “We create our own funky gumbo, and that’s what’s unique about it,” Brian J said. This is The Pimps of Joytime’s first performance in Steamboat. — To reach Brandon Gee, call 871-4210 or e-mail bgee@steamboatpilot.com

With the investigation of Michael Jackson’s death zeroing in on what drugs the pop singer took and who provided them, an upcoming toxicology report is key to whether anyone is criminally charged. It’s already known propofol, a powerful anesthetic not meant for home use, was among the drugs found in Jackson’s rented mansion. The Los Angeles Police Department, working with the Drug Enforcement Administration and California attorney general’s office, is trying to determine how the medications got there. The coroner’s toxicology report and the full autopsy results are not expected until the week after next. It will provide two important facts: whether propofol and any other drugs were present in the 50year-old singer when he died June 25 and whether the levels

were toxic. “The quantity is key here,” said Lawrence Kobilinsky, leader of forensic science at John Jay College in New York. “Not only the presence, but the amount that has to be interpreted to see if it contributed to the death.” Kobilinsky sees propofol as “a smoking gun.” “There is no reason it should have been available to him. If it is a contributing factor to his death, then I think there would be criminal charges,” he said. The district attorney’s office is in contact with police — a common practice during an investigation — but no evidence has been presented for possible charges, prosecutors’ spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said. Police have said very little publicly. Chief William Bratton has said detectives are scrutinizing Jackson’s prescription history and the doctors with whom he dealt, and haven’t ruled out anything. “Are we dealing with homicide? Are we dealing with an accidental overdose? What are we dealing with?” Bratton said last week. Investigators obtained a search warrant and removed several bottles of propofol from Jackson’s home, according to a person with knowledge of the investigation. The person is not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity. Federal drug agents have contacted a major maker of propofol, Teva Pharmaceuticals, and drug distributor AmerisourceBergen Corp. Authorities asked AmerisourceBergen for sales data on propofol and its brandname counterpart Diprivan

to doctors, pharmacies and hospitals, company spokesman Michael Kilpatric said. It’s part of an effort to determine how the drug made it from the factory to Jackson’s home. It’s a mound of information, but investigators sorting through it have a critical edge: They’re focusing on just a handful of doctors who hovered in Jackson’s orbit, among them his longtime dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein, and recently hired personal physician Conrad Murray. Police interviewed Murray two days after Jackson’s death. Authorities say he is a not a suspect, though the cardiologist is a key figure in the investigation because he was with Jackson in the mansion and tried to revive him. Edward Chernoff, Murray’s lawyer, said the doctor never gave or prescribed Jackson the painkillers Demerol or OxyContin and that the doctor didn’t give the pop star any drugs that contributed to his death. Jackson had numerous medical procedures and took pain medication for years. Cherilyn Lee, a nurse who worked for Jackson but was not with him when he died, has said Jackson asked her for Diprivan, the brand-name version of propofol, to alleviate his insomnia. She refused. Propofol and Diprivan are the drugs most widely used in the U.S. to induce general anesthesia. They can depresses breathing and lower the heart rate and blood pressure, so they are supposed to be administered by an anesthesia professional in a medical setting.

Director: Play challenging ‘Machinal’ continued from 23 situation to find herself in an even worse situation.” Correia said the world economic crisis provided him with an immediate connection to the play that anyone with a 401(k) can relate to. Like the play’s main character, he said he felt frustration and anger about “somebody else’s choices controlling our lives.” Virginia Veale, a student at The Juilliard School in New York, stars as Jones. Correia said the expressionistic drama provided a substantial challenge for Perry-Mansfield students, who were given just three weeks to pull it off. “I love it because of the stylistic challenge for the kids,” Correia said. “There’s a lot of weird acting stuff going on.”

Correia said he took the idea of seeing the entire story through Jones’ eyes to heart, which has a profound influence on the set, the design and the sometimes-grotesque costumes. “We want to give (students) the sort of literary and artistic challenge that would test their capacity to handle heavyweight material,” Maog said. “On a very simple basis, (the audience is) going to see some of the most amazing young talent I’ve actually ever seen tackle one of their toughest works. That’s a cage match in itself.” For more information about the play or to buy tickets for this weekend’s performances, call 879-7125, or go to www. perry-mansfield.org. — To reach Brandon Gee, call 871-4210 or e-mail bgee@steamboatpilot.com

Judge suspends $100 fine for motorist for illegal parking in Aspen Rick Carroll

THE ASPEN TIMES

ASPEN

By his own admission, Aspen Municipal Judge Brooke Peterson doesn’t cut much slack when it comes to motorists who park illegally in disabled spots. But Wednesday, Peterson did just that when he suspended the

$100 fine Mark Thomas faced for parking in a disabled space on Monarch Street just north of the alley than runs behind Carl’s Pharmacy. Peterson’s reasoning? Thomas provided photographic evidence showing the handicap sign is blocked by tree leaves and branches. “This is quite unusual for me to do this,” Peterson said,

“but it appears there is some obstruction.” Thomas came to court armed with several photos he took of the parking space in question. Thomas said that June 26, he went into Carl’s to buy some iced tea; when he returned he found a ticket on his car window for parking in a handicap spot. The ticket was issued by Aspen parking officer Ginny Stewart.

A former Colorado Department of Revenue supervisor says love for her ex-boyfriend led her to steal $11 million in unclaimed tax refunds from the state. The ex-boyfriend, Hysear Randell, is on trial in Denver this week on charges of theft, forgery, computer crime and racketeering. On Wednesday, Michelle Cawthra testified that she deposited unclaimed tax refunds and other money in Randell’s bank accounts during two years by forging documents and creat-

ing fake businesses. She said she frequently used computer passwords of other workers so she wouldn’t be detected. “I did things I don’t think I otherwise would have done had I not been in love with him,” she testified. Randell, who is married, is accused of using the money to pay for delinquent child support, land deals, diamond jewelry, cars and business ventures. Aside from some jewelry and trips, Cawthra, 32, said she didn’t benefit from the money she stole. Defense lawyer Scott Reisch said Randell, 42, thought the

money was coming from a Cawthra family trust fund. He argued Cawthra tried to use the money to lure Randell away from his wife, Trudy Randell, who is accused of helping create bank accounts for the scheme. She has pleaded guilty to theft but has not been sentenced. Cawthra said she didn’t have a trust fund. She said she tried to get Randell to leave his wife but that he knew the money was coming from the state. Cawthra is serving a 24year prison term after pleading guilty to racketeering. She testified as part of a plea deal with prosecutors that could help reduce her sentence.

Dish Network settles charges

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

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

������������������������

Dish Network said Thursday it agreed to pay nearly $6 million to settle charges that it improperly marketed, promoted and sold its products and services. Although the satellite TV provider isn’t admitting any wrongdoing in settling with attorneys generals in 46 states, it agreed to pay restitution to affected customers and make fuller disclosures in advertising and written contracts. State officials say Dish failed to disclose all the terms of

AROUND COLORADO service to customers, including rebates, credits and free offers. The states say that Dish refused to take responsibility when customers were misled by service resellers and equipment installers. State officials also accused Dish of charging customers’ credit cards and withdrawing money from bank accounts without giving adequate notice and getting proper authorization. They also said Dish didn’t tell customers that equipment sold or leased was used or refurbished. As part of the settlement, Dish agreed to more clearly disclose in ads any restrictions on promotional offers. It also promised to either sell new equipment or tell consumers they’re buying used goods. The company also must require retailers that resell its services to comply with the terms of the states’ agreement. Dish will pay restitution to affected consumers who filed complaints between Jan. 1, 2004, and July 9, 2009. People also can file complaints during the next five months with their state’s attorney general, Dish or Better Business Bureau to qualify, as long as the problem occurred within the past two years. Englewood-based Dish reached a settlement with all states except California, North Carolina, Illinois and Ohio. Those four states, along with the Federal Trade Commission, have sued Dish for alleged violations of a federal telemarketing law and thus aren’t part of the settlement. Dish did agree to comply with Do Not Call and other telemarketing laws as part of the 46-state settlement. Shares of Dish were up 43 cents, or nearly 3 percent, to close Thursday at $16.04.

The lawyer for a Montrose man accused of installing twoway mirrors in an apartment says he’s reviewing a plea deal offered to his client. Thirty-eight-year-old Darin Flora was accused in June of unlawful sexual contact, a misdemeanor. Police say Flora was working at a triplex in May when a tenant of one unit found a two-way mirror in his shower stall and another in his roommate’s bedroom. Maintenance workers had access to areas on the other side of the mirrors. The Montrose Daily Press reports that Flora’s record includes a guilty plea in 2004 to charges including third-degree sexual assault-peeping Tom. Flora’s attorney said Wednesday he was reviewing a plea offer in the latest case. Flora is due back in court Aug. 12.

Hollywood restores Apollo 11 video

� ����������� ��������

Seth Borenstein

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON

NASA could put a man on the moon but didn’t have the sense to keep the original video of the live TV transmission. In an embarrassing acknowledgment, the space agency said Thursday that it must have erased the Apollo 11 moon footage years ago so that it could reuse the videotape. But now, Hollywood is coming to the rescue. The studio wizards who restored “Casablanca” are digitally sharpening and cleaning up the ghostly, grainy footage of the moon landing, making it even better than what TV viewers saw July 20, 1969. They are doing it by working from four copies that NASA scrounged from throughout the world. “There’s nothing being created; there’s nothing being manufactured,” said NASA senior engineer Dick Nafzger, who is in charge of the project. “You can now see the detail that’s coming out.” The first batch of restored footage was released just in time for the 40th anniversary of the “one giant leap for mankind,” and some of the details seem new because of their sharpness. Originally, astronaut Neil Armstrong’s face visor was too fuzzy to be seen clearly. The upgraded video of Earth’s first moonwalker shows the visor and a reflection in it. The $230,000 refurbishing effort is only three weeks into a monthslong project, and only 40 percent of the work has been done. But it does show improvements in four snippets: Armstrong walking down the ladder; Buzz Aldrin following him; the two astronauts reading a plaque they left on the moon; and the planting of the flag on the lunar surface. Nafzger said a huge search that began three years ago for the old moon tapes led to the “inescapable conclusion” that 45 tapes of Apollo 11 video were erased and reused. His report on that will come out in a few weeks.

Lacking the votes to block Sonia Sotomayor from the Supreme Court, Republicans established lines in the sand for challenging any future nominee for the high court and tried to limit President Barack Obama’s hand if he gets another opportunity to pick a nominee. In four days of televised hearings, Republicans failed to knock Sotomayor off balance or pin her with the label of a liberal activist who would make policy from the bench. The hearings presented a high-profile opportunity for Republicans to trumpet the cause of their conservative base and push back against an administration seeking sweeping changes on health care, taxes, global warming and other big issues. They succeeded in getting Sotomayor to distance herself from Obama’s wish for justices who have “empathy” and his belief that “what is in a judge’s heart” should influence rulings. Under GOP questioning, she rejected the belief of some liberals that the Constitution is a “living” document whose meaning changes throughout time, and that foreign law should be used in deciding cases. Those responses established clear issues for Republicans to confront any future high-court nominee by Obama and could complicate his search for liberal candidates when the stakes may be higher if a conservative justice retires or dies. On the other hand, Sotomayor is widely expected to be confirmed by the Senate with a substantial number of GOP votes, suggesting that Obama has little to fear from Republicans. Sen. Jeff Sessions, of Alabama, the senior Republican on

OLIVIER DOULIERY/ABACA PRESS

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor answers questions on the fourth day of confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday in Washington, D.C.

NEWS ANALYSIS the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Thursday that Republicans would not try to block a confirmation vote. He said he still had “serious concerns” about Sotomayor but was pleased she had repudiated Obama’s “empathy” standard. Republicans used the opportunity to score points with their political base with a spirited — and mostly civil — volley of assaults, including repeated but futile attempts to pin her down on divisive issues such as abortion, same-sex marriage, gun ownership and the death penalty. Not wanting to challenge her too aggressively for fear of alienating Hispanics, a growing voting bloc, they diverted much of their fire and cast the Obama administration as far to the left of mainstream Americans. It’s a script sure to be used in next year’s midterm elections and beyond. Republicans “got a chance to try out their lines,” said GOP

consultant Rich Galen. “But it really doesn’t mean much because she’s going to get confirmed.” Galen compared the hearings to a “Kabuki dance,” the highly stylized Japanese stage play where the outcome is known well beforehand. Sotomayor and her Democratic defenders pushed back hard against repeated GOP efforts to portray her as a liberal activist. Instead, she presented herself as a nonideological, cautious and thorough jurist whose record reflected not judicial activism but a close adherence to law in her 17 years on the federal bench. She told the panel repeatedly that “Congress makes the laws,” not judges. And under persistent GOP questioning, she said she disagrees with Obama’s contention that Supreme Court justices should have “empathy” and his comments — made as a senator — that sometimes judges must look into their hearts as a last resort.

Man speaks at hearing about promotion denial because of skin color Nancy Benac

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON

He spoke, this 35-year-old firefighter, to frustrations that still ripple in an undercurrent across the nation. Frank Ricci, who is white, sat before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday and spoke in a steady, deliberate voice about how he studied hard, played by the rules, and was denied a promotion because of the color of his skin. He made no mention of Sonia Sotomayor, who had ruled against a discrimination claim by Ricci and fellow firefighters, and now is on track to become the first Hispanic on the Supreme Court. Everyman firefighter and Hispanic role model, these two are among the newest faces in an enduring American debate about how to do right by longdisadvantaged minorities and still give the majority a fair shake. Had Sotomayor not been nominated for the Supreme Court just as the Ricci case was unfolding, the Connecticut firefighters’ lawsuit might have been nothing more than a fairly significant employment case that went largely unremarked upon in public. Instead, Ricci found himself telling his story before U.S. senators and on national television after Sotomayor herself repeatedly was called upon to answer for her ruling in the case during four days of testimony before the committee. People shouldn’t be reduced to “racial statistics,” Ricci told the senators. They “don’t wish to be divided along racial lines.” His message was seconded by fellow firefighter Ben Vargas, who is Hispanic. “You put a face on the issues,” Sen. Ben Cardin, DMd., told the firefighters. Sotomayor, for her part, held out her ruling in the case as evidence that she hews to the law and precedent, not emotion or sympathies. Ricci, whose lawsuit ultimately was upheld by the Supreme Court, called the whole ordeal “an unbelievable civics lesson.” To Ronald Walters, professor emeritus at the University of Maryland, it was a lesson in the enduring potency of racial politics. For Republicans, Walters said, “it’s an issue that plays well with their constituency, and they’re drumming it. ... Basically, this is a narrow pitch toward the white community and the elections in the fall.” It’s not a new strategy.

“This all has a background,” said Kenneth O’Reilly, a historian who has written extensively on racial politics. The notion of the “white male as victim” has been around for decades, O’Reilly said, harking back to tensions about affirmative action during the Reagan

years. A decade earlier, the high court first visited the question of reverse discrimination when Allen Bakke, a white student with good grades, accused the University of California medical school of twice denying him admission because of his race.

Relentlessly rising unemployment is triggering more home foreclosures, threatening the Obama administration’s efforts to end the housing crisis and diminishing hopes the economy will rebound with vigor. In past recessions, the housing industry helped get the economy back on track. Home builders ramped up production, expecting buyers to take advantage of lower prices and jump into the market. But not this time. These days, homeowners who got fixed-rate prime mortgages because they had good credit can’t make their payments because they’re out of work. That means even more foreclosures and further declines in home values.

The initial surge in foreclosures in 2007 and 2008 was tied to subprime mortgages issued during the housing boom to people with shaky credit. That crisis has ebbed, but it has been replaced by more traditional foreclosures tied to the recession. Unemployment stood at 9.5 percent in June and is expected to rise past 10 percent and well into next year. The last time the U.S. economy was mired in a recession with such high unemployment was 1981 and 1982. But the home foreclosure rate then was less than onefourth what it is today. Housing wasn’t a drag on the economy, and when the recession ended, the boom was explosive. No one is expecting a repeat. The real estate market still is saturated with unsold homes and homes that sell below market value because they are in or close to foreclosure.

Rejecting pleas to save CIT Group, the Obama administration decided that the possible loss of the nation’s biggest lender for entrepreneurs and minority-owned businesses did not warrant tapping a politically unpopular bailout program financed by taxpayers. In the end, the administration said CIT did not meet the standards for aid. It was financially hobbled after a weeklong downward spiral of borrowers drawing down credit lines and creditors pulled their backing. The firm’s solvency also was in doubt as the loans on its books

lost value. Unlike Detroit automakers that were bailed out, CIT was not backed by powerful labor unions that could mobilize voters ahead of midterm congressional elections next year. And CIT’s lobbying push for federal help paled in comparison to big Wall Street firms that received a taxpayer handout last fall. “The reason CIT didn’t get rescued is because it didn’t have enough clout,” said Jonathan Macey, deputy dean of Yale Law School and author of a book on Sweden’s bank bailout. “If they had just had a few more labor unions and special interest groups, they might have (been saved), and

that’s extremely discouraging.” Sen. Evan Bayh, an Indiana Democrat who serves on the Senate banking and small business committees, said in an interview that the decision may not look so good politically, but he defended the administration’s action. “While it may have appeared to some that they were helping the big guys, it was actually their concern for the broader economy and the little guy that was driving their decision,” Bayh said. “Now the optics here a bit more difficult, but I’m sure it’s still the merits that are driving this decision. You’ve got to remember that taxpayers are the little guy, too.”

Pentagon eyes Army increase Military plans to add 30,000 soldiers to bolster depleting forces Lolita C. Baldor

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON

The Pentagon is considering a plan to add 30,000 soldiers to the Army to bolster a force depleted by a growing number of wounded, stressed and other soldiers who can’t be deployed with their units. Struggling to wage wars on two fronts, the Army says it needs a temporary increase in order to fill vacancies in units heading to the battlefront. The 547,000 member active duty force was beefed up by 65,000 in recent years, but military leaders say it hasn’t been enough to make up for the roughly 30,000 soldiers who — at any one time — are injured, pregnant, suffering from post-traumatic stress or health problems, or have been assigned to other jobs. Military leaders have been warning Congress that the prob�����������������������������

Human remains strewn amid overgrown weeds have deteriorated into jumbled bones. Paper records in a rusted metal cabinet have dissolved into dust. Days after horrified relatives learned that former workers at a historic black cemetery near Chicago allegedly dug up hundreds of bodies in a scheme to resell grave plots, relatives are learning that DNA likely won’t help them find their loved ones. The piles of bones and deteriorated records may make identifying many remains impossible. “Identifying everyone would be a tremendous long shot,” John Howard, president of the National Association of Medical Examiners, said this week. Officials estimate that at least 300 of 100,000 graves were tampered with at the Burr Oak Cemetery in Alsip, Ill., which is the burial place several famous

been tapped for other duties or have just returned from the battlefront, guaranteed one year at home before they redeploy. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Thursday that he plans to decide as early as next week whether to approve the temporary boost — which would be filled largely from intensified Army recruiting. Senators, however, already have introduced legislation calling for the increase. A senior defense official said Thursday that if the Army is given the go ahead to increase its ranks, it will be able to do so quickly and in time to make a difference in closing the deficit in the coming year. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because discussions are still preliminary, said a substantial number of Army recruits have signed up but are in the delayed entry program awaiting a training slot and enlistment into the active duty Army.

Americans including civil rightsera lynching victim Emmett Till. Four former workers are charged with dumping exhumed bodies in a deserted field the size of four square blocks in order to resell grave plots. Till’s grave was not disturbed. In the weeks since authorities announced the graveyard scheme, thousands of relatives have flooded the cemetery looking for answers. Some, who knew exactly where their family member was buried, reported missing gravestones or unkempt plots — but many others couldn’t figure out where the relatives were buried because the cemetery’s records were in such disarray. Forensic experts say it’s possible to extract enough viable DNA from many of the skulls, teeth and large bones. But investigators warn that it may not do much good because in order to find matches, scientists would then also have to test relatives from all of those buried at Burr Oak.

lem has been getting worse, as the number of soldiers unable to return to the battlefield has increased by as much as 3,000 in the past several years, according to Gen. Pete Chiarelli, the Army’s vice chief of staff. “It is a stretched and sometimes tired force that is meeting all the requirements, but at the same time, it is difficult to get our units up to the operating strength they need to before deployment,” Chiarelli said. According to the Army, 13 percent of the personnel in a typical unit heading to war are not available, compared to 11 percent previously. Roughly 9,400 soldiers are in so-called “warrior transition units,” with either physical or stress-related injuries. Another 10,000 are unavailable because of other less serious injuries, medical screening problems and pregnancy. In addition, about 10,000 have

House Dems muzzle GOP

Lawmakers try to protect against politically hazardous votes Andrew Taylor

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON

In their zeal to protect their members from politically hazardous votes on issues such as gay marriage and gun control, Democrats running the House of Representatives are taking extraordinary steps to muzzle Republicans in this summer’s debates on spending bills. On Thursday, for example, Republicans had hoped to force debates on abortion, school vouchers and medical marijuana, as well as gay marriage and gun control, as part of House consideration of the federal government’s contribution to the District of Columbia’s city budget. No way, Democrats said.

when they were the minority party from 1995 through 2006. House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey, D-Wis., insists the clampdown is to prevent debates from dragging on and on. Republicans, however, have agreed to limit the amount of time debating the bills. Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., acknowledged in a brief interview that one reason for restricting amendments is to save members of his party from having to cast politically painful votes. So instead of debating an attempt to allow more children living in Washington to receive school vouchers, the House will vote on a Quixotic attempt to eliminate the President’s Council of Economic Advisers.

At issue are 12 bills totaling more than $1.2 trillion in annual appropriations bills for funding most government programs — usually low-profile legislation that typically dominates the work of the House in June and July. For decades, those bills have come to the floor under an open process that allows any member to try to amend them. Often those amendments are an effort to change government policy by adding or subtracting money for carrying it out. The tradition often has meant laborious debates. But it has allowed lawmakers with little seniority to have their say on doling out the one-third of the federal budget passed by Congress each year. It was a right the Democrats zealously defended

ment, businesses and families. Asked by Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad, D-N.D., if the evolving legislation would bend the cost curve, the budget director responded that — as things stand now — “the curve is being raised.” Explained Elmendorf: “In the legislation that has been reported, we do not see the sort of fundamental changes that would be necessary to reduce the trajectory of federal health spending by a significant amount. And on the contrary, the legislation significantly expands the federal responsibility for health care costs.”

WASHINGTON

Democrats’ health care bills won’t meet President Barack Obama’s goal of slowing the ruinous increase of medical costs, Congress’ budget umpire warned Thursday, giving weight to critics who say the legislation could break the bank. The sobering assessment from Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Elmendorf came as House Democrats pushed to pass a partisan bill through committees, while in the Senate, a small group of lawmakers continued to seek a deal that

could win support from both political parties. With the pressure mounting on all sides, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., dismissed as “a waste of money” a TV ad campaign by Obama’s political organization aiming to nudge moderates of both parties off the fence. He called it “Democrats running ads against Democrats.” A spokesman later said Reid has no problem with the effort. From the beginning of the health care debate, Obama has insisted that any overhaul must “bend the curve” of rapidly increasing costs that threaten to swamp the budgets of govern-

BEIJING

China has bought a rebound in economic growth with a flood of government spending and bank loans, averting a surge in politically dangerous unemployment and fueling hopes that it might help lead a world recovery. The government’s announcement Thursday that secondquarter growth accelerated by 7.9 percent from a year earlier boosted global financial markets, though Beijing cautioned that a full-fledged recovery is not firmly established. The economy grew by 6.1 percent in the first quarter, according to the National Bureau of Statistics, and analysts said fullyear growth should easily reach the government’s 8 percent target. The increase highlighted the economy’s dependence on Beijing’s $586 billion (4 trillion yuan) stimulus effort. It was launched after demand for Chinese exports collapsed, wiping out tens of millions of factory jobs and raising the specter of unrest. “A major motivator for this stimulus is to maintain job growth and to prevent massive disorder. It seems to be succeeding,” said Kenneth Lieberthal, a China scholar at the Brookings Institution in Washington. Economic recovery in China could help fuel a global revival if it leads to increased purchases

of American and European factory equipment, Asian industrial components, as well as Australian iron ore and raw materials. A stronger economy also could help Chinese companies pursue foreign acquisitions such as Beijing Automotive Industries’ bid to acquire General Motors’ Opel division. “The U.S. is probably going to get more exports going to Asia. So that’s good,” said Jay Bryson, global economist at Wells Fargo Securities. The surge buoyed markets from Tokyo to Singapore. “This should give people confidence that China’s economy is on strong footing and that there are a lot better days ahead,” said Alan Landau, Hong Kongbased president of Marco Polo Pure Asset Management. But analysts cautioned that China alone cannot drive a rebound. The bulk of Chinese imports are raw materials from other developing economies, so the direct benefits to the United States and Europe might be limited. “At this stage, the main impact will be in the commodities market,” benefiting Australia, Canada and Latin America, said Stephen Lewis, chief economist at Monument Securities in London. It will take economic improvement in the United States, the world’s largest economy, and European countries to really pull the world out of recession, economists said. In addition, there were con-

cerns about the foundation on which China’s recovery is built. Economic growth is being driven by stimulus spending on construction of airports and other public works, not measures that would spur domestic consumption. And most of the money is going to state companies, though some is starting to reach the private sector. “The difficulties and challenges in the current economic development are still numerous,” said Li Xiaochao, spokesman for the National Bureau of Statistics. “The basis of the rebound of the people’s economy is not stable.” State-owned banks have increased lending to record levels to finance stimulus-linked projects and encourage housing sales. New credit soared in the first half to a record $1.1 trillion (7.3 trillion yuan), and there are concerns.

About 70 percent of the world’s existing flu vaccines are made in Europe, and only a handful of countries are selfsufficient in vaccines. The U.S. has limited flu vaccine facilities, and because factories can’t be built overnight, there is no quick fix to boost vaccine supplies.

British children’s authors boycott schools

��������������������������

New policy requires writers to undergo criminal background checks Gregory Katz

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON

Some of Britain’s leading children’s authors are refusing to do readings in schools because of a new policy requiring them to be registered in a national database and undergo criminal background checks to prove they aren’t sex offenders. It’s not just the $104 fee for the police checks that has outraged the authors. It’s the idea that they — and even parents who volunteer in schools — must be declared innocent

before being allowed to read to children. Some of the biggest names in children’s book publishing have joined the boycott beginning this fall, including a number of past recipients of the prestigious children’s laureate prize. Akin to poet laureate, the governmentappointed position is awarded to a noted children’s author, who is charged with promoting children’s literature in schools. “Of course we have to take care, but this is not necessary,” said Michael Morpurgo, the 2003-05 children’s laureate whose more than 100 books

long have been revered by British students and teachers. “I’ve done this hundreds of times, and you are never alone with children. There are always 100 to 200 children and teachers around you. It’s absurd to think children are in any kind of danger.” The new rule, which takes effect in October, requires anyone who comes into contact with schoolchildren or vulnerable adults to register with the newly established Independent Safeguarding Authority and undergo a Criminal Records Bureau check to prove they are not a known threat.

LONDON

An ugly scramble is brewing about the swine flu vaccine — and when it becomes available, Britain, the United States and other nations could find that the contracts they signed with pharmaceutical companies are easily broken. Experts warn that during a global epidemic, which the world is in now, governments may be under tremendous pressure to protect their own citizens first before allowing com-

panies to ship doses of vaccine out of the country. That does not bode well for many nations, including the United States, which makes only 20 percent of the regular flu vaccines it uses, or Britain, where all of its flu vaccines are produced abroad. “This isn’t rocket science,” said Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Diseases Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota. “If there is severe disease, countries will want to hang onto the vaccine for their own citizens.” Experts say politicians would

KABUL

Critics decry his government as corrupt and ineffectual, the economy is in the tank, and the country is racked by an insurgency led by the very people he helped oust from power eight years ago. Nevertheless, President Hamid Karzai is the odds-on favorite to finish first in Afghanistan’s Aug. 20 presidential election. The best scenario for his opponents is that the 40 others in the race — including two women — can win enough votes to deny him a majority. That would force a runoff — in which Karzai would be vulnerable if the other hopefuls can rally around a single alternate candidate. Whatever the outcome,

country’s ethnic communities. Karzai probably can count on winning most of the votes cast by his fellow Pashtuns, who make up about 40 percent of the population and most of the Taliban. Karzai, the urbane Englishspeaking son of a Pashtun tribal leader, came into power shortly after the 2001 fall of the Taliban regime and had the strong backing of the Bush administration. He was one of the few Pashtun leaders to oppose the Taliban inside Afghanistan during the U.S.-led invasion. But his standing has fallen hard since then. Diplomats in Kabul say Karzai has shied away from making hard choices to end the endemic corruption and increasing violence sweeping his country. If he wins a second term, Karzai has promised to open negotiations with the Taliban to end the war and focus on building roads, improving education, boosting the economy and shoring up agriculture. Many of those goals are shared by other candidates. In the weeks before the balloting, Karzai’s staff is working hard to try to avoid a runoff, which would be held Oct. 3 after the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

President Barack Obama hopes the election will allow the U.S. to “transition to a different phase” in the conflict, handing over more responKarzai sibility to Afghans and eventually withdrawing American troops. Obama has sent thousands of reinforcements to Afghanistan to help bolster security for the balloting. In a chaotic country gripped by war, it is difficult to predict how the candidates will fare. Few reliable polls have been made public, though many Western diplomats think the race is Karzai’s to lose. A survey conducted in May for the International Republican Institute found that only 31 percent of 3,200 Afghans questioned said they would vote for Karzai — well below the 55 percent he won the 2004 election. Still, he was far ahead of his second place rival, former foreign minister Abdullah Abdullah with 7 percent. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. Karzai’s campaign staff dismiss that poll as outdated. Since the survey, Karzai has forged alliances with numerous tribal leaders and elders from the

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Recent Steamboat Springs High School graduate Charlie Smith’s boredom has turned into an opportunity to play collegiate tennis. Smith, a three-year varsity player for the Sailors, will play tennis for Division III Guilford College in Greensboro, N.C., in the fall, a little more than four years after he first picked up a tennis racket. Smith played soccer for most of his childhood, but the sport had worn on him by the start of his freshman year. With nothing to do in the fall, Smith decided to give tennis a try. “The first time I picked up a racket was the first time I practiced two weeks before my freshman year,” Smith said. “Coach (John) Aragon played me with the same kid every day. It was terrible. But I worked a lot harder that spring and made varsity my sophomore year.” Smith played No. 4 doubles as a sophomore and then wrapped up his junior and senior years at No. 1 doubles. He finished fourth at state with partner Alex Gibbs his junior year. “I think it’s just that I’m athletic,” Smith said in regards to how he picked up the game so quickly. “I worked hard and was committed to tennis. If sports were a class, I’d get an ‘A’ in it. But I played with better players, and it was all around just fun.” Smith also had a scholarship offer to play at Mesa State College in Grand Junction. He considered it, but ultimately decided to head to North Carolina where he has family. He visited Guilford College and knew it was the place for him. He hit with coach Eddie Luck and several of the other players and was offered a spot See Tennis, page 46

He’s only 10, but Frank Ruppel understands the importance of good coaching. Frank, who swims for the Steamboat Springs Team Lightning summer club swim team, admits he wasn’t exactly a fish when he started competitive swimming at age 6. But a

couple of coaches and long lessons later, Frank is one of the best and brightest swimmers in the region. “I started swimming and didn’t have the best of luck,” he said. “But I got with the coaches and started improving. It came naturally.” Naturally enough that Frank is on the verge of making the Colorado Swim Team and getting an invite to Hawaii to com-

pete against the best swimmers in all of the Western United States. During the weekend, Frank set two zone times in the 50and 100-meter backstrokes. If he sets one more in either of his other events — the 50 or 100 butterfly — Frank will qualify for the event in Hawaii. Zone times are times swimmers have to achieve for consideration for the Colorado

Swim Team. Frank and the rest of his Steamboat teammates left Thursday for the Western Slope Open in Grand Junction. There, Frank said he thinks he has a shot in the 50 and 100 fly. He’s only 1 second off of qualifying in the 50-meter event. Frank comes from a swimming family where all of his See Swimming, page 46

Rodeo hopes ‘Wild Child’ fills stands Nationally known performance act in Steamboat Springs for 2-week run Joel Reichenberger PILOT & TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Faced with the same gloomy economic outlook that seems to have given the rest of city indigestion, the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series vowed last winter not to go on a diet. It swore to stick to its tradi-

tional 10-week, 20-performance schedule, to pull all the stops when it came to attracting competitors, and to roll out the same glitzy lineup of clowns and nationally renowned rodeo acts fans had become accustomed to. “If anything, you’re going to see a better product,” rodeo board member Rob Powers said

in December. Patrons at this weekend’s two performances, the first of which starts at 7:30 p.m. today at Brent Romick Rodeo Arena in downtown Steamboat Springs, will see the evidence of that plan. As the rodeo approaches the midway point of its summer run — admittedly dealing with

a decline in attendance — it turns to its biggest act. Troy “Wild Child” Lerwill has been voted five times as the Pro Rodeo Cowboys Association comedy act of the year and has served three times as a barrelman at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. See Rodeo, page 47

Golf shootout draws juniors John F. Russell

Home Entertainment Made Easy!

STEAMBOAT TODAY

For the men’s club at Steamboat Golf Club, the annual Cowboy/Cowgirls Shootout is much more than just another golf tournament. “It’s staple at our club,” course manager Wayne Garrison said. “It’s an opportunity to give back to the youth in our community. It’s our chance to get children involved with golf.” This year, the Cowboy/

Cowgirls Shootout celebrates its 14th year with a July 29 tournament. Bill Nickey, the course’s former junior director, started the tournament. He has since moved to Pennsylvania for health reasons. The tournament has remained and become an annual tradition at the nine-hole course just west of Steamboat Springs. The tournament is specifically for youth golfers as old as 18. The youngest golfers, ages 9 and younger, play five holes and tee off at 2 p.m. There are

also divisions for golfers ages 10 to 11 and 12 to 13. Those golfers play nine holes at tee off at 12:30 p.m. The older divisions, including the 14 to 15 division, and 16 to 18 division, tee off at 8 a.m. and play 18 holes. The entry fee is $30 and includes tournament fee, lunch and prizes. The deadline to enter is July 27, and golfers (or their parents) should register at the Steamboat Golf Club’s pro shop. For more information, call the course at 970-879-4295.

on the team. He’ll play doubles and singles next year. Because Guilford is Division III, it can’t give out athletic scholarships. Still, Smith earned several academic scholarships to help with the cost. His plan is to spend two years at Guilford before transferring to a bigger school in California or North Carolina. “Oh yeah, Charlie can defi-

nitely play at the college level,” Aragon said. “The thing is, if he keeps the same attitude and keeps working and challenging himself, by the time he’s a junior or senior, he’s going to be quite a player.” Smith left Thursday for Alaska to attend a National Outdoor Leadership School trip. He flies into North Carolina on Aug. 16 to start school and tennis. He said he isn’t sure what

he’ll study — perhaps education or business — but said he is glad to have the opportunity to keep playing tennis. “I’m playing the best I have my whole life,” he said. “The coaches have been talking about it, and I hope it stays like that when I get back. But I’ll be playing with good kids. I’ll have to play better.” — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail lgraham@steamboatpilot.com

Frank also plays football, soccer and is a skier Swimming continued from 45 siblings swam at top levels. His mother, Jill, said she thinks friendly family competition has helped motivate Frank. She said he mentioned making zone times to her early this year. Now, it’s a reality. “All of this is coming from him,” said Jill, who also helps

coach Team Lightning. “I didn’t even think about zones and all we do is eat, drink and sleep swimming. … I figured we’d be done with swimming by the end of July. Not in Frank’s book, if he has his way.” Frank also plays football, soccer and is a Nordic skier. But he says swimming is easily his favorite and best sport.

No one will doubt him now. “I’ll be pretty disappointed if I don’t make it,” Frank said about qualifying for the Colorado Swim Team. “But I don’t think that’s going to happen.” If he doesn’t make it this weekend, Frank will have one more chance — July 25 and 26 in Fort Collins at a Junior Olympics event.

He will perform at both Steamboat rodeos this weekend and again at next weekend’s shows. “The thing about Troy is that everyone loves him,” rodeo board member Char Mighton said. “His act is spectacular, he’s very funny and the crowd loves it. We are hoping he is going to be a big draw for the next two weeks.” Lerwill will serve as the weekend’s clown and barrelman, and as a special rodeo entertainer. He said he began developing his routine the first time he hopped on a dirt bike when he was 11. He went on to live the life of a daredevil. He raced on the professional motocross circuit for six years and served as a rodeo bull fighter after that. Eventually, he combined his two loves, creating a motorcycle-powered rodeo act. His high-flying, quick-witted performance has been one of the most popular events at the Steamboat rodeo since he first laid tracks here five years ago.

ing only the Diamondbacks and Rockies in Tucson. With most Cactus League teams in the Phoenix area, the Diamondbacks and Rockies said it was inconvenient to travel to road games. The Diamondbacks also wanted to be closer to their fan base. The Rockies have trained at Tucson’s aging Hi Corbett Field since their inception in 1993. “We know that this shared home will be one of the finest year-round training facilities in all of major league baseball and something that our organizations, fans and the community will be proud of for decades to

come,” Rockies President Keli McGregor said. The deal is for 25 years with options to extend. The tribe and the clubs said they would make joint decisions on the design of the facility near Indian Bend Road and the Loop 101 freeway, a short distance from a casino operated by the tribe and an adjacent large hotel that is under construction. HKS Architects, which recently designed the Camelback RanchGlendale facility for the Dodgers and White Sox, is designing the new facility. “Our ancestors built ball courts on this land and throughout the valley,” said Diane Enos, president of the Salt River PimaMaricopa Indian Community. “Now we are excited about bringing baseball home to our community.”

Aaron Cook pitched six solid innings, Clint Barmes hit a three-run homer and Seth Smith added a two-run shot to lead the Colorado Rockies to a 10-1 victory against the San Diego Padres on Thursday night. Cook (9-3) continued his dominance over THURSDAY’S the Padres by getGAME: Rockies 10 ting out of two bases-loaded jams Padress 1 while only allowing one run. Cook raised his career record against the Padres to 13-4. He allowed a run in the first and pitched out of trouble in every inning except the second when he had his only 12-3 inning. The right-hander allowed eight hits, walked four and struck out eight. Barmes homered in the sixth inning, his 11th, off Mike Ekstrom to increase the Rockies’

lead to 7-1. Smith homered off Ryan Webb in the eighth. Colorado scored at least seven runs for the fourth time in six games. Colorado’s Todd Helton had four hits, including two doubles that left him two short of becoming the 50th player in baseball history with 500. The Rockies (48-41) improved their record to 30-13 since Jim Tracy replaced Clint Hurdle as manager. San Diego has lost 22 of 30. Cook won his sixth straight decision as he improved his mark to 6-1 with a 1.60 ERA in his past nine starts in San Diego. Cook has a career ERA of 2.66 against the Padres in 23 appearances, including 21 starts. The Padres scored their only run on Kevin Kouzmanoff’s single in the first. After San Diego loaded the bases, Cook struck out Will Venable and got Eliezer Alfonso on a grounder.

In the third, the Padres loaded the bases with two outs before Cook struck out Alfonso, who stranded eight baserunners, including five in scoring position. San Diego left 14 men on base. Chad Gaudin (4-8) walked Cook with the bases loaded in second. Gaudin allowed four runs — one earned — and four hits in five innings. He walked four and struck out eight but was the victim of two errors, including one by Gold Glove first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. Gonzalez, one of two San Diego All-Stars, drew two walks, giving him 43 in San Diego’s past 43 games. Rockies All-Star RF Brad Hawpe was held out of the starting lineup, which had been decided upon before the AllStar break by Tracy. “Knowing the whirlwind he obviously went through over the last couple of days, I wanted him to have another day off to get rest,” Tracy said.

The Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies are National League West rivals. Now they’re partners in a spring training facility planned for the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community near Phoenix. Under an agreement announced Thursday, the tribe will build an 11,000-seat ballpark and a complex that includes 12 practice fields, training facilities and offices. The facility is expected to be ready for the 2011 exhibition season. The 140-acre site is adjacent to Scottsdale. It is thought to be the first major league spring training facility on tribal land. “We are certainly excit-

ed that we have come to an agreement on our future spring training home with a wonderful community,” Diamondbacks President and CEO Derrick Hall said. “We have had several interested parties and sites but ultimately found this site to be superb.” The Diamondbacks have held spring training operations at Tucson Electric Park since the team’s inception in 1998, sharing the facility with the Chicago White Sox until 2008.

CYCLING — TOUR DE FRANCE to serious business as Armstrong goes up against his Astana teammate Alberto Contador on a tricky trek that features one grueling mountain climb. “Tomorrow is hard, that is a real stage,” Armstrong said Thursday. “The climb up Col du Platzerwasel is difficult, it is a long way. It is a longer day and anything can happen.” Armstrong, who retired after his seventh straight Tour win in 2005 only to stun the cycling world by announcing he would race again this year, expects some of the Tour contenders to make their move today. “You have to watch all the rivals, even someone like (Denis) Menchov,” Armstrong said about the Giro d’Italia winner. “Some

might say he is five or six minutes behind and his race is finished, but if he gains back time, he has the Alps, and then if he is close enough on the (Mont) Ventoux, he could present a problem.” Armstrong briefly looked to be in trouble after about 37 miles on Thursday, when he had to pull over to let his Astana team repair a puncture in his back wheel. But after a few moments, four of Armstrong’s teammates helped him catch up with the main pack again. “Up and down all day long and was aggressive from the start,” Armstrong said on his Twitter feed. Although Nocentini will keep the yellow jersey heading into Friday’s 13th stage, he is not considered a threat for overall victory — and seemed to be saying he’s done the best he can.

Golf champ turns it on at Turnberry COMMENTARY

TURNBERRY, SCOTLAND

These kind of things usually don’t end well, no matter how much we might want them to. Golf is a tough enough game for even the youngsters playing in this British Open, and 59-year-olds have no business getting in the way — no matter what their pedigree might be. But then Tom Watson starts talkDahlberg ing about feeling something spiritual out on the links, and you start wondering. He calls the golf course “she,” like Turnberry is an eccentric old aunt, and says he feels a serenity when he is with her. On Thursday, he went out underneath a retro argyle sweater with a 16-year-old as one of his playing partners and shot a 5under 65 that was as remarkable as it was improbable. It matched the score he posted in the final round on the same course in 1977 to beat Jack Nicklaus by a shot and win the claret jug trophy in what would live in golf lore as the “Duel in the Sun.” The ease with which it came made a lot of his fans — and there are many in Britain, where his success has been great — want to believe. But he’s at an age where the supreme confidence of one day can mysteriously disappear by the next. The day before, he had teased reporters by telling them what a great story it would be if he might somehow win, then laughed at the silliness of it all. He didn’t mention anything

about the text messages wishing him good luck from a woman named Barbara, who just happens to be married to the man he beat 32 years ago. He doesn’t have many other secrets, because Watson always has been an open book, at least when it comes to golf. He’s played on the public stage in four different decades now, and his five British Open wins, second only to Harry Vardon, would testify to a brilliant career even if he had never done anything else. But win a sixth just nine months after undergoing hip surgery? Against a field that includes Tiger Woods and a host of 20-somethings who hit the ball long and far? Not likely. Not at an age when nerves fray quicker and muscles ache longer. He beat Nicklaus in 1977 and won the 2003 Senior British Open with a final round 64. And there was the near miss in

1994, when he and Nicklaus had some dinner and a few bottles of wine after the final round, then sneaked on to play the adjoining par-3 course in the dark. A security guard came to shoo them away, only to find the greatest player ever and a five-time British Open champion engaged in a bit of fun. Golf hasn’t been as much fun lately, and Watson knows time is running out, so that makes the round that left him just a stroke behind Miguel Angel Jimenez so special. British Open champions once had a lifetime pass to the tournament, but the age limit is now 60, meaning next year’s tournament at St. Andrews will be his last. He seems resigned to that and says he doesn’t want to play when he has no chance to win. But he feels he still has a few rounds left in him and believes there is something magical here that he can’t quite explain. They just might, assuming the cosmic gods of golf want it that way.
