The commissioners approved the across-the-board pay cuts in an effort to reduce a budget shortfall of $4.9 million. The county’s elected officials, whose pay is set by the state Legislature, were exempt from the cuts, but some of them said they would

voluntarily cut their pay by 10 percent and return that portion of their salary to the county or donate it to charity. The pay cuts will save the county more than $1 million this year, but still aren’t enough to balance the 2009 budget. The county also adopted a furlough program earlier this year to reduce county employees’ hours in an amount proportionSee Exemptions, page 35

We made a little raid across the border into New Mexico earlier this month so that I could continue researching my new book on the health benefits of a diet rich in green chilies. It was in a funky barbecue joint on Guadalupe Street in old town Santa Fe over a humongous platter of huevos rancheros that we encountered Bill and Bonnie Hearne and the band called Bethlehem and Eggs. We were having a lazy Sunday morning after spending an entire Saturday poking around Santa Fe in the 97degree heat when we pulled up to a modern strip mall café.

Former Oak Creek Mayor Kathy “Cargo” Rodeman said Matteson was someone to turn to for odd jobs around town. “If you needed somebody to mow your yard or stack your wood, you would know who could use the money. And if you had leftover meatloaf, you’d know who would appreciate it,” she said. Rodeman said there were some complaints about Matteson when he first moved to town, but as people got to know him, those concerns went away. “There was nothing harmful about the man,” she said. “He would work for whatever it was he needed.” She also said he brought out the best in some Oak Creek residents, who would make sure he had a warm place to stay during a cold winter night.

Robert Matteson was a familiar figure around Oak Creek, where he often worked odd jobs scooping snow in the winter and mowing grass in the summer. He was homeless for most of his years in Oak Creek, but he always was ready to work, those who knew him best said Monday. Known by most as “Cowboy Bob,” Matteson died Sunday at the age of 63. Shirley Montieth, owner of the Elk’s Tavern in Oak Creek, called herself “probably the best friend he had in Oak Creek.” She said Matteson had lived in the South Routt County town for about seven or eight years. She didn’t hesitate to put him to work, and he didn’t hesitate to accept the offers. Montieth said Matteson often would bring in coal and take out the ash in the winter. “He did sit in here a lot, drink water and visit with me. If I needed him to run an errand for me, he’d jump up and do it,” she said Monday. A black-and-white photo of Matteson, taken by a photographer visiting Oak Creek from Evergreen, hangs in the Elk’s Tavern along with his veteran’s hat recovered from the shed where Matteson was found dead Sunday morning. It is thought that Matteson was a veteran of the Vietnam War. Montieth said Matteson talked about serving for four years in the military, mostly as a military police officer in Germany. Matteson’s military record could not be confirmed Monday. LIFT-UP of Routt County food bank manager Pam Graham said Matteson would come to the food bank in lean times. “If he was working and bringing in some money, I wouldn’t see him. He came by more in the winter when he didn’t have as much work, and it was a good place to visit and chat,” she said. Graham said Matteson’s requests were simple. “He wanted cheese and crackers. That’s all he wanted. And

A memorial service for Robert “Cowboy Bob” Matteson is from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Elk’s Tavern in Oak Creek.

Montieth said Matteson was “just more or less kind of homeless. (He) bummed around from here to there doing whatever handiwork he could find.” Matteson was found early Sunday in a shed north of Main Street. Routt County Coroner Rob Ryg said it appears Matteson died of natural causes; an autopsy is scheduled for this morning in Jefferson County. Ryg said Matteson has one son, Robert Michael Matteson, who lives in New York. Montieth said she thinks Matteson originally was from Rochester, N.Y. Ryg said Matteson also has a couple of brothers. His son will handle funeral arrangements. — To reach Zach Fridell, call 871-4208 or e-mail zfridell@steamboatpilot.com

A familiar face and plane will be missing from the festivities at Steamboat Springs Airport in early September for the annual Wild West Air Fest. Parker resident Gary Miller,

a frequent Air Fest attendee, died July 9 when his World War II-era plane crashed in Simla while he was practicing aerobatic maneuvers. Miller flew at the Air Fest the past two years but had brought his airplane to town as part of the annual Labor Day festivities since the early to mid-1990s,

said Mike Forney, an Air Fest committee member who emcees the event. According to a National Transportation Safety Board preliminary accident report, witnesses observed Miller practicing maneuvers for about 15 minutes See Crash, page 12

360 agreement up for approval PILOT & TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

At its 5 p.m. meeting today, the Steamboat Springs City Council will consider adoption of a pre-annexation agreement with the developers of 360 Village. The agreement marks the beginning of more detailed negotiations concerning the proposed 110-acre community. The pre-annexation agreement sets the bar for such issues as affordable housing requirements, project vesting, fiscal impacts and water rights dedication. Council also is scheduled to receive an update on Steamboat

700 — the other planned project west of city limits seeking annexation. A decision on that project is expected in the fall. Also today, council will consider the first reading of an ordinance placing a question on the Nov. 3 ballot that would amend the city’s Home Rule Charter. If approved, the ballot measure would cure a discrepancy between the city charter and state statute concerning the number of signatures required for a referendum petition. Council also will vote today on a number of planning matters, including a proposal by Howelsen Place Condominiums

to submit a payment in lieu to the city in exchange for the ability to remove deed restrictions from six units. There also are proposals to build two new mixed-use buildings — with height variances — on Yampa Street adjacent to Steamboat Yacht Club and a request for a water body setback variance for a new deck above the restaurant.

Oak Creek waits for candidate’s decision Choice for community service officer has ‘not formally accepted’ Zach Fridell

PILOT & TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Oak Creek’s top candidate for its community service officer position is yet to accept the town’s offer, Town Trustee Dave Ege said Monday. An interview team of trustees and Police Consultant Eileen Rossi selected a candidate with previous experience in a similar position, Rossi said. Town officials have not released the name of the female candidate, saying only that she is

not from Oak Creek. Ege said the person has “not formally accepted the position yet” because she is attending to a family matter. Ege said he called the candidate but has not heard back. The Oak Creek Town Board has a meeting scheduled for Thursday evening where the community service officer position may be discussed, but an agenda for that meeting is not yet available. The position is part time and deals with enforcement of the town’s municipal codes. The

officer will not be armed and will not deal with major crimes. Oak Creek has relied on coverage from the Routt County Sheriff’s Office since Chief Russ Caterinicchio, Sgt. Erik Foster and code enforcement officer Tony VanDeventer resigned in September. Rossi said she still is on the police payroll on a contract basis. She maintains the evidence locker and sex offender registry and handles administrative tasks, she said.

f you’ve noticed an increase in the number of shooting stars in recent nights, there’s good reason. This month’s annual Delta Aquarid meteor shower is increasing in activity as we get closer to its peak in the morning July 29. Other minor showers, such as the Kappa Cygnids and the Capricornids, also are throwing in a few meteors. A meteor shower is named for the constellation from which the meteors seem to radiate, so we have, for example, the August Perseids, which radiate from the constellation of Perseus; the December Geminids, which radiate from the constellation Gemini; and this month’s Delta Aquarids, which seem to spring from near the star Delta in the constellation Aquarius.

of Halley’s Comet, twice each year. July’s Delta Aquarid shower is unique in that it is the only strong shower whose parent comet is unknown. Either the parent comet was pulled into a different orbit long ago after a close pass by one of the outer planets, or it met with some catastrophic end. The

COMMENTARY

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

Race in 2028 Ross Douthat

THE NEW YORK TIMES

During last week’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings, Republican senators kept bringing the conversation back to 2001 — the year when Sonia Sotomayor delivered the most famous version of her line about how a “wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences” might outshine a white male judge. It was left to a Democratic senator, Herb Douthat Kohl, of Wisconsin, to ask about the much more interesting year of 2028. By then, according to recent Supreme Court jurisprudence, some kinds of affirmative action may no longer be permissible. In 2003, writing for the majority in Grutter v. Bollinger, Sandra Day O’Connor upheld race-based discrimina-

tion in college admissions ... but only for the current generation. Such policies “must be limited in time,” she wrote, adding that “the Court expects that 25 years from now, the use of racial preferences will no longer be necessary to further the interest approved today.” It was a characteristic O’Connor move: unmoored from any high constitutional principle but not without a certain political shrewdness. In a nation that aspires to colorblindness, her opinion acknowledged, affirmative action can only be justified if it comes with a statute of limitations. Allowing reverse discrimination in the wake of segregation is one thing. Discriminating in the name of diversity indefinitely is quite another. It’s doubtful, though, that Sonia Sotomayor shares this view. “It is firmly my hope, as it was expressed by Justice O’Connor,” she told Kohl, “that in 25 years, race in our society won’t be needed to be considered in

any situation.” But O’Connor didn’t hope; she expected. And Sotomayor’s record suggests that there’s a considerable difference between these postures — that for the nominee, as for most liberal jurists, as long as racial disparities persist, so too must racial preferences. This is the big question underlying the “wise Latina” contretemps and the controversy surrounding Sotomayor’s role in Ricci v. DeStefano. Whither affirmative action in an age of America’s first black president? Will it be gradually phased out, as the Supreme Court’s conservatives seem to prefer? Or will it endure well into this century and beyond? To affirmative action’s defenders, Sotomayor’s confirmation hearings have been an advertisement for the latter course. Here you have a Hispanic woman being grilled by a collection of senators See Douthat, page 9

Teacher, can we leave now? No. Thomas Friedman THE NEW YORK TIMES

I confess, I find it hard to come to Afghanistan and not ask: Why are we here? Who cares about the Taliban? AlQaida is gone. And if its leaders come back, well, that’s why God created cruise missiles. But every time I start writing that column, something stills my hand. This week, it was something very powerful. I watched Greg Mortenson, the famed author of “Three Friedman Cups of Tea,” open one of his schools for girls in this remote Afghan village in the Hindu Kush mountains. I must say, after witnessing the delight in the faces of those little Afghan girls crowded three to a desk waiting to learn, I found it very hard to write, “Let’s

just get out of here.” Indeed, Mortenson’s efforts remind us what the essence of the “war on terrorism” is about. It’s about the war of ideas within Islam — a war between religious zealots who glorify martyrdom and want to keep Islam untouched by modernity and isolated from other faiths, with its women disempowered, and those who want to embrace modernity, open Islam to new ideas and empower Muslim women as much as men. America’s invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were, in part, an effort to create the space for the Muslim progressives to fight and win so that the real engine of change, something that takes nine months and 21 years to produce — a new generation — can be educated and raised differently. Which is why it was no accident that Adm. Mike Mullen, the U.S. chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — spent half a day in order to reach Mortenson’s newest school and cut the ribbon. Getting there

was fun. Our Chinook helicopter threaded its way between mountain peaks, from Kabul up through the Panjshir Valley, before landing in a cloud of dust at the village of Pushghar. Imagine if someone put a new, one-story school on the moon, and you’ll appreciate the rocky desolateness of this landscape. But there, out front, was Mortenson, dressed in traditional Afghan garb. He was surrounded by bearded village elders and scores of young Afghan boys and girls, who were agog at the helicopter, and not quite believing that America’s “warrior chief” — as Mullen’s title was loosely translated into Urdu — was coming to open the new school. While the admiral passed out notebooks, Mortenson told me why he has devoted his life to building 131 secular schools for girls in Pakistan and another 48 in Afghanistan: “The money is money See Friedman, page 9 Bruce Tinsley

Affirmative action understandable, not ideal who embody, quite literally, the white male power structure. Her chief Republican interlocutor, Jeff Sessions, of Alabama, even has a history of racially charged remarks. The nation’s largest states, Texas and California, already have “minority” majorities. By 2023, if current demographic trends continue, nonwhites — black, Hispanic and Asian — will constitute a majority of Americans younger than 18. By 2042, they’ll constitute a national majority. As this generation rises, racebased discrimination needs to go. The explicit scale-tipping in college admissions should give way to class-based affirmative action; the de facto racial preferences required of employers by anti-discrimination law should disappear.

A system designed to ensure the advancement of minorities will tend toward corruption if it persists for generations, even after the minorities have become a majority. If affirmative action exists in the America of 2028, it will be as a spoils system for the already-successful, a patronage machine for politicians — and a source of permanent grievance among America’s shrinking white population. You can see this landscape taking shape in academia, where the quest for diversity is already as likely to benefit the children of high-achieving recent immigrants as the descendants of slaves. You can see it in the backroom dealing revealed by Ricci v. DeStefano, where the original decision to deny promotions to white firefighters was heavily influenced by a local African-American “kingmak-

er” with a direct line to New Haven’s mayor. You can hear it in the resentments gathering on the rightward reaches of the talk-radio dial. And you can see the outlines of a different, better future in the closing passages of Barack Obama’s recent address to the NAACP, in which the president presented an insistent vision of black America as the master of its own fate. Affirmative action always has been understandable, but never ideal. It congratulates its practitioners on their virtue, condescends to its beneficiaries and corrodes the racial attitudes of its victims. All of this could be defended as a temporary experiment. But if affirmative action persists far into the American future, that experiment will have failed — and we will all have been corrupted by it.

Reasons hard to see, but it’s hard to walk away Friedman continued from 8 well-spent. These are secular schools that will bring a new generation of kids that will have a broader view of the world. We focus on areas where there is no education. Religious extremism flourishes in areas of isolation and conflict. “When a girl gets educated here and then becomes a mother, she will be much less likely to let her son become a militant or insurgent,” he added. “And she will have fewer children. When a girl learns how to read and write, one of the first things she does is teach her own mother. The girls will bring home meat and veggies, wrapped in newspapers, and the mother will ask the girl to read the newspaper to her, and the mothers will learn about politics and about women who are exploited.” It is no accident, Mortenson noted, that since 2007, the Taliban and its allies have

bombed, burned or shut down more than 640 schools in Afghanistan and 350 schools in Pakistan, of which about 80 percent are schools for girls. This valley, controlled by Tajik fighters, is secure, but down south in Helmand province, where the worst fighting is today, the deputy minister of education said that Taliban extremists have shut 75 of the 228 schools in the past year. This is the real war of ideas. The Taliban want public mosques, not public schools. The Muslim militants recruit among the illiterate and impoverished in society, so the more of them the better, said Mortenson. This new school teaches grades one through six. I asked some girls through an interpreter what they wanted to be when they grow up: “Teacher,” shouted one. “Doctor,” shouted another. Living here, those are the only two educated role models these girls encounter. Where were they going

to school before Mortenson’s Central Asia Institute and the U.S. State Department joined with the village elders to get this secular public school built? “The mosque,” the girls said. Mortenson said he was originally critical of the U.S. military in Iraq and Afghanistan, but he’s changed his views: “The U.S. military has gone through a huge learning curve. They really get it. It’s all about building relationships from the ground up, listening more and serving the people of Afghanistan.” So there you have it. In grand strategic terms, I still don’t know if this Afghan war makes sense anymore. I was dubious before I arrived, and I still am. But when you see two little Afghan girls crouched on the front steps of their new school, clutching tightly with both arms the notebooks handed to them by a U.S. admiral — as if they were their first dolls — it’s hard to say: “Let’s just walk away.” Not yet.

Band, food make for memorable morning Ross continued from 2 wine-colored Fender Thinline Telecaster. After a few tunes, it occurred to me that they were singing a lot of old timey songs with religious references. How appropriate for a Sunday morning spent in a “church” of green chili, I thought to myself. Finally, just before the break, the band members introduced themselves to the audience, and I finally caught on. They hadn’t been proselytizing between songs, but there was a reason they were singing that Bob Dylan song “I Shall be Released” (any day now) and the old Hank Williams classic “Drifting Too Far From Shore.” It all added up to a very pleasant morning: tapping our feet to the music and feasting

on brunch New Mexico style while rubbing shoulders with a crowd that was about half locals and half tourists. But the best part was yet to come. During breakfast, I noticed an older couple sitting in front of us, plainly getting a kick out of the music. I could infer from the dog lying by the table wearing a leather handle attached to a harness that the woman was sightless. It gave us a warm feeling to see individual band members come over to the table and greet her by name. However, I was a little surprised when they pulled up a chair for her in front of the bandstand and handed her a microphone. Bonnie Hearne sang a version of “Amazing Grace,” in a confident, pure voice before transitioning into an up-tempo jazzy version of “Swing Low,

Sweet Chariot.” The crowd loved it. I only had the opportunity to exchange a brief greeting with Bonnie, but her husband, Bill, confided that his wife gave up singing professionally about six years ago. Bill, on the other hand, still has a regular gig fronting the Bill Hearne Trio at the historic La Fonda hotel. “We play Americana music like Lyle Lovett,” Bill said. You should catch them next time you’re down Santa Fe way. Alternatively, swing into Cowgirl and order a plate of Bethlehem and Eggs. Afterward, you can waddle down to Kowboyz and purchase a bigger belt. You’re gonna need it. — To reach Tom Ross, call 871-4205 or e-mail tross@steamboatpilot.com

It’s more of a sprinkle than a shower, really Westlake continued from 6 a mystery. To watch the Delta Aquarid meteor shower, you’ll need to set your alarm for about 3 a.m. July 29, or else (like me) just stay up all night long. The constellation of Aquarius doesn’t rise until about 11 p.m. Tuesday, so, don’t expect to see any Delta Aquarids before then. Aquarius

is at its highest in the southern sky about 4 a.m., so this will be the best time to watch. The meteors will seem to dart in every direction, but their paths will start from near the star Delta Aquarii, just above the bright star Fomalhaut. You might see about one or two shower meteors every five minutes, on average. It’s more of a sprinkle than a shower, really.

Consider the Delta Aquarids just a warm-up for the granddaddy of all meteor showers, the August Perseids, which can produce more than one meteor per minute.

Man guilty in $11 million theft from state

THIS TUESDAY Buy 1 Jewelry Item...

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER

A Denver jury has convicted a 42-year-old man of racketeering, theft and other charges in the theft of $11 million in unclaimed tax refunds from the state. The jury deliberated less than four hours Monday before returning 52 guilty verdicts

against Hysear Randell. He was charged with 54 felony counts, including violating the Colorado Organized Crime Control Act, theft, theft by receiving, computer crime, forgery, and conspiracy to commit theft and embezzlement of public property. Randell was acquitted of two counts of computer crime. He potentially faces hundreds of

years in prison when he’s sentenced Sept. 25. Randell was accused of a scheme involving his ex-girlfriend, Michelle Cawthra, a former Colorado Department of Revenue supervisor. Cawthra testified during Randell’s weeklong trial that she deposited unclaimed tax refunds and other money in Randell’s bank

accounts during two years by forging documents and creating fake businesses. Cawthra is serving a 24-year prison term after pleading guilty to racketeering. Randell’s wife, Trudy Randell, is accused of helping create bank accounts for the scheme. She has pleaded guilty to theft but has not yet been sentenced.

fire erupted immediately after impact, the NTSB report stated. “Gary has been actively involved in building his aerobatic performance over the last couple of years,” Forney said, adding that Miller had not performed that routine in Steamboat. “… I assume that’s what he was doing when he lost control.” Dan Baker, an NTSB investigator, said his portion of the investigation takes three to six months. He said it would be forwarded for review to NTSB’s headquarters, which will determine probable cause and publish a brief. Until then, no more information would be available about the accident, Baker said. Miller operated Gary Miller Airshows. According to his Web site, he leaves behind his wife, Becky, and four children, Lindsay, 18; Geoffrey, 17;

Lauren and Taylor Anne, both 14. Forney said Miller had committed to return to Steamboat on Sept. 5 and 6 for the fifth annual Wild West Air Fest to provide rides in “Mystical Power.” “He was very excited about coming,” Forney said. “He said to me, this is the one event he wouldn’t miss because he really enjoyed the hospitality, the people and the airport. “He had a special place in his heart for Steamboat. And so did we for him.” A memorial service took place July 14 at Centennial Airport in Englewood.

Wildfire temporarily closes I-70 west THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

AROUND COLORADO FRUITA

Authorities suspect lighting caused a 35-acre wildfire that forced temporary shutdowns of westbound Interstate 70 near Fruita on Sunday and Monday. The fire started at about 6 p.m. and at one point burned brush in the median of I-70. Crews later contained the flames to the north side of the highway. The interstate was closed again around noon Monday when the fire flared up. It was reopened later in the afternoon. No injuries were reported, but a water line and some

power lines were damaged. Authorities say a small structure was threatened but did not burn. An 800-acre wildfire near Norwood in southwest Colorado was fully contained during the weekend.

Dead alligator found in western Colorado ditch HOTCHKISS

A dead creature found in an irrigation ditch in western Colorado wasn’t the usual kind

of roadkill. A 4-foot-long alligator was found July 14 about four miles northeast of Hotchkiss. State wildlife officials think the animal was released in the area when it was alive. Doug Homan, of the Colorado Division of Wildlife, said it’s illegal to turn nonnative species loose in Colorado. Homan says exotic species can carry diseases that could harm native wildlife. He says the alligator also could have attacked wildlife or people.

DENVER

Colorado’s chief medical officer, police officers and prosecutors urged health officials Monday to limit the state’s medical marijuana providers to five patients each, saying the current system — which has no limits — is causing confusion about who legally can grow marijuana and is susceptible to fraud. Medical marijuana users and their supporters, who packed a hearing before the state health board, said the rule changes would make it harder for people who need the drug to get it legally. Dr. Ned Calonge, Colorado’s chief medical officer, said the

program will “continue to grow out of control” unless more restrictive rules are adopted. Currently, a voter-approved amendment to the state constitution allows designated caregivers to grow marijuana for an unlimited number of patients. Patients registered with the state after getting a doctor’s recommendation to use medical marijuana also can grow as many as six marijuana plants for themselves. However, many patients say they don’t have the money or the expertise to produce a good crop. Calonge, chief medical officer for the state health department, said some dispensaries, which have sprouted up to serve the growing number of medical marijuana patients, also have

Striking a more populist tone than in past remarks, the president complained that “health insurance companies and their executives have reaped windfall profits from a broken system.” “Let’s fight our way through the politics of the moment,” Obama said. “Let’s pass reform by the end of this year.” That reflects a shift in a timetable he has stressed repeatedly. Obama had said previously that he wanted the House and Senate to vote on legislation before lawmakers leave town for their August recess, with a comprehensive bill for him to sign in October. “I want this done now. Now, if there are no deadlines, nothing gets done in this town,” Obama told PBS’s “The NewsHour.” “If somebody comes to me and says ‘It’s basically done, it’s going to spill over by a few days or a week,’ you know, that’s different.” He said too much of the focus has been on what has not been accomplished instead of on a coalition of health companies, professionals and constituents. Later in the day, aides organized a conference call for Obama to speak with liberal bloggers and rally them behind the White House’s broad outline for overhaul.

President Barack Obama pushed back hard against Republican critics of his health care overhaul plan Monday, dismissing the “politics of the moment” marked by GOP comparisons of his efforts to socialism. Struggling to revamp the nation’s $2.4 trillion health care system, Obama the president gave ground on his tight timetable for passage of sweeping legislation. Obama’s strong words came just hours after Republicans ratcheted up their criticism of the president and congressional Democrats. Michael Steele, chairman of the Republican

Party, likened Obama’s plans to socialism and argued that the president, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and key congressional committee chairmen are part of a “cabal” that wants to implement government-run health care. The White House also faced troubling news in the latest polling, with approval of Obama’s handling of health care slipping. “We can’t afford the politics of delay and defeat when it comes to health care,” Obama said after meeting with doctors, nurses and other health care workers at Children’s National Medical Center. “Not this time. Not now. There are too many lives and livelihoods at stake.” Without mentioning his critic by name, the president recounted South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint’s comment that stopping Obama’s bid for health care overhaul could be the president’s “Waterloo,” a reference to the site of Napoleon’s bitter defeat in 1815. “This isn’t about me,” Obama responded. “This isn’t about politics. This is about a health care system that is breaking America’s families, breaking America’s businesses and breaking America’s economy.”

Rockies continue push in 10-6 win De La Rosa keeps D-backs at bay THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER

Jorge De La Rosa pitched seven strong innings in his fifth straight win and drove in two runs, Dexter Fowler and Chris Iannetta homered, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 10-6, on Monday night. Every Colorado starter except Brad Hawpe had at least De La Rosa one hit, and the Rockies scored at least one run in each of the first five innings. With the win and San Francisco’s loss to Atlanta, the Rockies moved into the National League wild card lead, one-half game ahead of the Giants. Mark Reynolds and Stephen Drew homered for the Diamondbacks. De La Rosa (7-7), who started the season 0-6, is 7-1 since May 31. He gave up one run on four hits, struck out six and walked one. He also had a career-high two hits. The two RBIs were also a career best. Doug Davis (4-10) gave up eight runs on six hits, struck out one and walked four in 2 1-3 innings. It was Davis’ shortest outing of the season. The Rockies jumped on Arizona early. In the first, Clint Barmes singled, stole second and moved to third when Hawpe reached on a fielder’s choice. With two outs, Troy Tulowitzki doubled into the gap in right-center field to score both runners and make it 2-0. They padded their lead in the second. Ian Stewart led off with a double, Iannetta singled with one out and De La Rosa’s safety squeeze scored Stewart from third. Fowler followed with his fourth home run of the year to make it 5-0.

Astana riders, from left, Alberto Contador, of Spain, Lance Armstrong, of the U.S., and Andreas Kloden, of Germany, gather for a moment before training on the Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife in December 2008. Contador won the 15th stage of the Tour de France on Sunday and now wears the yellow jersey for the first time since 2007. The Spanish rider said tensions between himself and Armstrong had cooled and that he expected the 7-time Tour winner’s support in the final week of racing.

SION, SWITZERLAND

The tension with Lance Armstrong is all but gone in the crisp mountain air and the line of authority is clear. Now, Alberto Contador wants to concentrate on those teams intent on seizing his Tour de France lead. The Spaniard used Monday’s rest day to lay out his plan of

attack to keep the yellow jersey he won by capturing the first stage in the Alps a day earlier. Contador, the 2007 Tour champion, said his lead over other contenders “looks good” so far, but cautioned: “It’s not done yet, we still have a hard week left to go.” Armstrong, the seven-time champion who returned to the race after 3 1/2 years of retirement, is in second overall — 1 minute, 37 seconds behind his

Astana teammate. The 37-year-old Texan has conceded that his chances of victory on the Champs-Elysees in Paris on Sunday are slim. He pledged to be a faithful support rider for Contador. “Yesterday, he gave me his support, and I believe him,” Contador told a news conference at a team hotel in the Swiss town of Sion, near the start of today’s 16th stage in Martigny.

On his Twitter page Monday, Armstrong wrote: “Just finished a easy ride on rest day (No.) 2. Beautiful here in Sion, Switzerland. Lots of vines.” Armstrong wasn’t speaking to reporters Monday, Astana spokesman Philippe Maertens said. But a week earlier, after the two riders leapfrogged each other in the standings, Armstrong referred to “tenSee Contador, page 16

Single goal separates Steamboat U12 boys from title John F. Russell

At the end of three days of soccer, all that separated the hometown U12 boys soccer team from its second Steamboat Mountain Soccer Tournament title was a single goal. Steamboat lost to the Colorado Rush Advanced, 1-0, in Sunday’s championship match.

YOUTH SOCCER “My players were extremely disappointed, but I wasn’t,” Steamboat coach Michael de Jong said. “Our team played so well. If we would have played this team a year ago, we would have lost by six goals.” But with the exception of a goal late in the first half of Sunday’s championship game,

de Jong felt his team was up to the task. “It was a tight, well-played game,” de Jong said. But it was not the only tight game during Sunday’s championship round of the 25th annual Steamboat Mountain Soccer Tournament. In fact, 10 of the 14 championship games were decided by a single goal. “It was an exciting final

day,” tournament director Kris Rowse said. “We had a lot of evenly matched finals and some great soccer.” Teams leaving Steamboat with titles include the Colorado Edge Black in the U18 girls division. The Edge downed Grand Junction High School, 2-1, in the championship tilt. The U16 girls title also was See Soccer, page 16

decided in a tight game with the Colorado Hammers slipping past the Blaze in a 2-1 game. There was a little more offense in the U14 girls championship, but once again, the title came down to one goal as the Broomfield Blast topped the Colorado Rush Fireballs, 54. The RMSA Cougars topped the Broomfield Blast, 4-3, in the U13 title match, and the Colorado Edge Black team took home the U12 title with a 2-1 victory against Spitfire. In the youngest competitive

division, the Broomfield Blast earned a 1-0 win against the Long Beach Speed Demons. On the boys’ side, the Grand Junction Tigers earned the U18 title with a 3-2 win against the Impact White. Thompson Club United slipped past Craig in a 2-1 contest to win the U16 title, and the Trebol Arsenal earned the U13 title with a 1-0 victory against the Colorado Storm Blue. In the only two games that were not decided by a single goal, the U14 boys title went to the Avalanche, who downed the NCSC Bootleggers in a 5-3 contest, and the U11 title went to

The Colorado Ice White after a 5-1 win against the Broomfield Blast (white). Two titles were awarded to teams in the U10 recreational division based on points awarded in a round-robin format. The Grand Junction Tigers won the U10 boys recreational division, and the Steamboat Springs Flames finished second in the division. The Blizzard earned the title on the girls’ side with the Arvada Edge Shockers finishing second in that division. —To reach John F. Russell call 871-4209 or email jrussell@steamboatpilot.com

He said his top concern in the punishing final week is Andy Schleck, of Luxembourg, a strong climber who is 2:26 behind in fifth place. Bradley Wiggins, of Britain, a strong time-trial rider who has proved his ability to climb at this Tour, is third and 1:46 back. Contador said Wiggins will be “dangerous” in Thursday’s time trial in Annecy. “I still have a small gap with him, (and) he’s one of my biggest competitors now,” the Spaniard said. “So maybe I’ll try to take

Ex-NFL star a free man after serving 23 months for dogfighting

The electronic monitor came off Michael Vick’s ankle and made him a free man Monday. Now he just has to get on Roger Goodell’s calendar and convince the NFL commissioner and team owners he’s reformed and ready to play. It’ll be no small task. Vick’s release Vick after serving 23 months on a dogfighting conviction — the last 60 days in home confinement — came a week before NFL training camps open for veterans. “It is going to take a lot of hard work” for Vick to make it back, said New York Jets veteran wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery. “He is a talented player, so someone will give him a shot,” Cotchery added. “He just has to take advantage of it.” The last NFL game Vick played was Dec. 31, 2006, months before he was indicted on federal dogfighting conspiracy charges in July 2007. At 29 years old, Vick could play several more years in the league. That begins with a face-to-

are good on quarterbacks,” Johnson said, adding that the Jets also didn’t see Vick as an option. Earlier Monday, two men in a car with a U.S. Probation Services folder on the dashboard arrived at Vick’s home and removed the electronic monitor he wore while on home confinement. Vick’s attorney, Lawrence Woodward, arrived while the men were inside. He came out a few minutes later and said that Vick had been released from federal custody as scheduled. Woodward then drove Vick to the federal courthouse in Norfolk, where they met with probation officials and completed paperwork. They declined to answer reporters’ questions when they came out after about an hour and 45 minutes. A man in a passing car shouted, “We’ve got your back, Mike!” Vick silently raised his right fist in the air. Brenda Boddie, Vick’s mother, wore a broad smile in the morning after the probation officials removed the monitor. She said later that she is excited he’s free again. “He’s doing fine,” she said Monday afternoon, but added she wasn’t sure what his next step would be.

face meeting with Goodell, who has said he wants to see remorse and evidence of change from the player he suspended indefinitely. The last time they met, about two years ago, Vick denied his dogfighting involvement. Goodell has repeatedly said he would only meet with Vick after he completed his prison sentence, but it’s unclear when that meeting will take place. “The review of his status is ongoing, but we are providing no other details at this time,” league spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday. After Goodell comes the teams. The owners of the Jets and the New York Giants said Monday that they have no interest in signing Vick. Giants owner John Mara and Jets owner Woody Johnson were emphatic in saying their teams’ quarterback positions were filled. “On a lot of levels, no,” Mara said when asked whether the Giants had any interest in Vick. Mara added there wasn’t even any discussion or debate in the front office about Vick. Despite the competition to replace Brett Favre, Johnson said the Jets also weren’t interested. “We’ve got Kellen Clemens and now we have this young Mark Sanchez, and I think we

Charlie Weis remembered when he met with George Steinbrenner at Legends Field during spring training two years ago. “I looked at him and said, ‘Mr. Steinbrenner, you’ve got this new stadium going up. I mean, you’re not going to have Notre Dame and Army scheduled for your first football game?”’ the Notre Dame coach recalled Monday. “He laughed, first of all. You know, I don’t think he’s used to people busting his chops too often.” Turns out, the Fighting Irish will play the first football game at Steinbrenner’s $1.5 billion ballpark, facing Army in a nationally televised matchup on Saturday night Nov. 20, 2010. “It demonstrates a commitment to tradition,” Army coach Rich Ellerson said. “I think it’s reassuring.” Steinbrenner, always more comfortable in football meta-

phors than baseball adjectives, played football at Williams and was an assistant coach at Northwestern and Purdue. Notre Dame and Army have a long history of playing in New York. They met 22 times at old Yankee Stadium, facing each other annually from 192546, except for 1930, and again in 1969 in the 100th anniversary of college football. They also played at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn (1923), the Polo Grounds in Manhattan (1924) and Shea Stadium in Queens (1965). Army and Notre Dame have played 10 times in the past 40 years, meeting six times at South Bend, once at West Point, plus three times at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. (1977, 1983 and 1995). Football was not played across the street at old Yankee Stadium after September 1987, when Central State, Ohio, beat Grambling State, 37-21.

Harvick not so happy anymore Jenna Fryer

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLOTTE, N.C.

They called him “Happy Harvick” at the start of his NASCAR career, when success came so easy that Kevin Harvick had a seemingly perpetual smile. It’s been quite some time since the nickname fit. Harvick’s been rather unhappy of late and struggling through the worst slump of his career — a winless streak that dates back 90 points races, to the 2007 season-opening Daytona 500. It’s so bad that his name has been thrown into the rumor mill, with mounting speculation that he’s trying to weasel his way out of Richard Childress Racing. He’s under contract to Childress through next season, as is sponsor Shell-Pennzoil, and the team owner felt the need last week to stress that both will be back with the No. 29 Chevrolet in 2010. Like the dreaded vote of confidence that generally precedes a firing, Childress’ sharply worded statement could very well mean Harvick is on the move. Harvick is saying very little publicly, which only feeds the rumors. He’s smart, calculating and sometimes manipulative, and over the course of his career, he’s never held back when voicing his displeasure on a variety of topics. Because nothing sets him off quite like poor performance,

NASCAR the whole world has been waiting for him to explode as he’s drifted out of contention for the Chase for the championship. Instead, he’s said next to nothing, even biting his tongue when his Kevin Harvick Inc. team accidentally ran him out of gas during Saturday night’s Nationwide Series race in St. Louis. It relegated a potentially race-winning car — he led 105 of the 200 laps — to a 17thplace finish. The Harvick of old would have publicly blasted his team, and maybe even fired an employee or two. And on the Cup side, where he’s 25th in points and has led just nine laps all year, he’d be screaming bloody murder about the pathetic RCR performance this season. He admitted last month at Sonoma that this has been his “worst year that I’ve ever had racing, period,” but declined to speculate on how to fix it. He told said any problems are companywide at RCR — and he’s right, Clint Bowyer and Jeff Burton are both off a tick this season, while Casey Mears has sputtered in his first year with the team — but directed any performance issues to Childress. “It’s not my job to figure out what is wrong. You give all the input that you can back, and then it’s out of my department,” Harvick said. “Ask Richard what’s wrong. He’s the only one who can answer this.”

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

Childress is the first to admit his team is struggling, and in April he fell back on one of his standard quick-fix ideas, swapping the entire crews of Harvick and Mears. It had worked for Childress two previous times before, when he successfully swapped crews in 1998 for the late Dale Earnhardt and Mike Skinner, then again with Harvick and Robby Gordon. That 2002 swap came during a rebuilding period for RCR, which was still putting itself back together a year after Earnhardt’s fatal accident. It was one of the many dips in performance Harvick has weathered, and he’s indicated he’s not willing to suffer through another rebuild. “There’s just a lot of scenarios that you hope play out right, and you just wait and see how it all plays out,” he said with a sly smile. Beyond that, he wouldn’t bite, furthering the belief that Harvick has an ace in the hole he’s waiting to play. But what could it be that Harvick has in the works? There was speculation he could be headed to Stewart-Haas Racing as an expanded third entry, but that would require sponsorship, and Stewart has yet to sell off Ryan Newman’s current season. If Harvick is hoping to take Shell with him to a new home, the company likely will have a hard fight with Childress to move with a year left on its contract.

Time is running out on ageless Watson Tom Watson was among the British Open champions whom the R&A consulted when it decided the game was getting younger and it was time to lower the age limit to 60 for winners of golf’s oldest championship. It might be time to reconsider. Imagine how much different that conversation would have been had the Royal & Ancient seen a performance for the ages at Turnberry, where a 59-yearold Watson was in the lead the final three days and came within an 8-foot putt of winning. “I’m sure if someone at age 59 had been winning the championship, bringing down the age limit would have been lower on the agenda,” R&A chief executive Peter Dawson said Monday. “But we brought down the age limit in order to give more spaces in the championship to younger players allegedly in their prime to compete.” Watson sure looked in prime time at Turnberry.

Perhaps more people should have paid attention on the eve of the British Open when Watson spoke in reverent tones about his affection for Turnberry,

where he had won 32 years earlier in the famous “Duel in the Sun” against Jack Nicklaus. He explained all week why he can still complete on links courses that require shots to be struck pure, not necessarily with power.

4 more troops die in deadliest month in Afghanistan Robert H. Reid

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KABUL

A roadside bomb killed four American troops in eastern Afghanistan on Monday, driving the July death toll for U.S. forces to the highest monthly level of the war. The latest deaths brought to at least 30 the number of American service members who have died in Afghanistan this month — two more than the figure for all of June 2008, which had been the deadliest month for the U.S. since the 2001 U.S.-

led invasion drove the Taliban from power. July’s death toll for the entire U.S.-led coalition, which includes American, British, Canadian and other forces, stands at 55 — well over the previous record of 46 deaths suffered in June and August of 2008. U.S. commanders had predicted a bloody summer after President Barack Obama ordered 21,000 additional U.S. troops to Afghanistan in a bid to turn the tide against a resurgent Taliban and shift the focus on the global war against Islamic extremism from Iraq.

Monger: Savings could lower fees Exemptions continued from 1 al to their pay cut. In addition to the pay cuts and furloughs, all county departments also were asked to make operational cuts to ease the budget deficit. Commissioner Doug Monger said Monday that the board discussed not including the building department and airport in the salary cuts but ultimately chose not to exclude any department. “At the time when we passed the 10 percent pay cut, we felt all departments needed to participate,” he said, citing fairness and the similarity of some job descriptions in various departments. Dunham said Monday that because the building department serves the county, Steamboat Springs, Oak Creek and Yampa, its customers would see a 10 percent reduction in service if the electrical inspector position is not restored, or that customers would work with an independent contractor who fills in every other Friday for the furloughed electrical inspector at a cost of $35 an hour. Dunham said restoring the salary of his electrical inspector would cost $2,744.60 from Aug. 1 through the rest of the year. “It’s probably not as (much a) money issue as a customer service issue,” he said. “We’re dealing with prepaid service. We’ve collected the money, and we’re trying to provide services.” County Manager Tom Sullivan said Monday that the savings from the building department will be put in reserves to help make up an estimated $800,000 deficit in the revenue budgeted from building permits to what the county actually expects to receive this year. Ruppel said Monday that the savings for the rest of the year from the cuts to his staff totals $115,956. He said the Federal Aviation Administration requires those funds only be available for the airport but that he doesn’t need the funds to meet his budget. Eventually, Ruppel said he

would like the airport to be a separate entity from the county so it can establish its own pay rates and job requirements for positions. Commissioner Nancy Stahoviak said that was a discussion that would be better suited for the 2010 budget, not today’s hearing. Monger said savings from the cuts in the building department and at the airport could allow the county to lower building permit fees and the landing fees charged to airlines. Because the permit fees are needed for building department reserves, lowering those fees wouldn’t be an immediate option, he said. Ruppel said it’s too late in the year for savings to benefit the airport or airlines because the fees already were budgeted. He said funds could be returned but likely would just go into the airport’s reserves. Dunham and Ruppel aren’t the first county department leaders to request that some of their employees not be included in the cuts. Sheriff Wall has repeatedly requested that his deputies be exempt from the pay cuts. Wall has said state statute allows him to set his employees’ salaries, which were approved by commissioners as part of the 2009 budget that was adopted last year. The commissioners took no action on Wall’s most recent request July 14 because they said he presented no new information to change their minds. In a continued effort to meet a budget shortfall still at more than $1 million for the rest of the year, the county laid off three employees July 7. Other vacant positions were frozen or eliminated earlier this year. Cuts also were made to county capital and operational expenditures. County officials have previously said that to balance the 2010 budget without using reserves, they would have to leave the 10 percent pay reduction in place and eliminate about a dozen more positions.

NATO’s outgoing SecretaryGeneral Jaap de Hoop Scheffer said Monday that terrorism would spread through the world if NATO forces fail in Afghanistan. “Al-Qaida would have a free run again, and their terrorist ambitions are global,” he said in a speech at London’s Chatham House think tank. “Those who argue otherwise — who say we can defend against terrorism from home — are simply burying their heads in the sand.” Defense Secretary Robert Gates has warned that U.S.-led forces must demonstrate prog-

ress in Afghanistan by next summer or face a public perception that the conflict cannot be won. Heavy losses this month have already triggered a public debate in Britain that the war in Afghanistan may not be worth the price. With more troops in the country, American and British forces have been striking deeper into Taliban strongholds in the south, hoping to establish enough security for Afghans to choose a president next month and cut insurgent supply lines into Pakistan. British military authorities

���������

said Monday that bombing attacks in southern Afghanistan soared nearly 43 percent for the first five months of this year over the same period last year. U.S. troops have also stepped up efforts in eastern Afghanistan to curb the movement of militants to and from safe havens in Pakistan’s lawless tribal region. A NATO statement said the four soldiers were killed by an improvised explosive device in the east of the country but gave no further details. A U.S. spokesman, Lt. Robert Carr, confirmed all four were Americans.
