If trustees choose to propose taxes, those could be on the ballot as soon as November. “We will move forward with a couple different taxes on specific items that have hopefully a limited or no effect on Hayden residents,” Martin said.

Those include a possible 3.5 percent tax on lodging and car rentals, he said. Although Hayden doesn’t have a hotel or motel, it could in the future. The Colorado Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights requires that voters decide on new taxes. Martin said he understood that some people wouldn’t like the idea of having tourists pay more taxes. “I think it still puts Steam-

boat at a reasonable competitive position as far as a resort experience and what it’s costing,” he said. Martin also noted that other towns and cities use a car-rental tax to increase revenue. “I didn’t stop going to places I’ve been because of the carrental tax,” he said.

Three cheers for the Fudge Lady

s we hiked through knee-high wildflowers to picnic on the shore of Gilpin Lake, my friend remarked, “I’m in a bit of a food mood. Nothing seems appealing.” “Try this,” I said, reaching into my backpack for a little plastic bag containing a small piece of chocolate fudge. A pause while we remembered the tableau of vibrant colors on the way up — purplish columbines, yellow glacier lilies and fiery Indian paintbrush. And then, I heard a barely audible “mmmmm” that telegraphed one message: Bliss. “I haven’t had fudge in years. Where did you get that?” It was time to share my secret. Serious fudge fans know there’s only one place to buy fudge in Routt County — the marina at Steamboat Lake State Park.

lying next to an overturned garbage can. Anderson said he did not see who shot the bear. “It’s a bit shocking for anybody who lives in the neighborhood that someone would shoot a gun,” he said. Anderson said overturned garbage cans aren’t a new problem in the alley but said that doesn’t mean the bear should be shot. “I just have a real hard time with this,” he said. “It’s a people problem.”

Haskins said this bear had been known to get into trash in the alley, but neighbors nearby told him that the bear was not a major concern. “My understanding is that the neighbors in the area had not been having trouble with bears where this bear was shot. At this point, we don’t have reason to believe this was a regular occurrence in the area,” he said. See Bear, page 17

An adult male bear was shot and killed in an alley in downtown Steamboat Springs on Monday night. Jim Haskins, area manager for the Colorado Division of Wildlife, said officers are treating the killing as a crime and investigating who shot the 200 to 300 pound bear. Haskins said the bear was going through trash in the alleyway parallel to Eighth and Ninth streets, between Pine and Aspen streets, when someone shot it in the head. “It’s not like a situation where someone was protecting human life or property or anything like that,” he said. Towny Anderson, who lives next door to the driveway where the bear was shot, said he heard a gunshot at about 10 to 10:15 p.m. “I heard the gunshot, which was pretty loud, pretty distinctive, and I looked out the window and saw the overturned garbage can,” he said. He also saw the dead bear

County restores some salaries Some building department, airport staff exempt from pay cuts Jack Weinstein

Routt County commissioners eliminated the 10 percent pay cut and furlough program for some employees Tuesday morning. They restored the salaries of the building department’s electrical inspector and 11 airport employees, who are governed by Federal Aviation Administration guidelines, after presentations from Building Official Carl Dunham and Airport Manager Dave Ruppel. The airport positions include four Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting personnel; security and operations personnel; and seven maintenance employees, five full time and 2 part time. In addition, seasonal employees who will begin working for the airport Nov. 1 will be exempt from the cuts. Commissioners also lifted a county freeze in overtime pay for the airport employees. The electrical inspector and airport employees will be exempt from the cuts and fur-

loughs starting Aug. 1 through Dec. 31. The commissioners adopted the across-the-board pay cuts April 1 in an effort to reduce a budget deficit this year of $4.9 million. The pay cuts will save the county more than $1 million but still aren’t enough to balance the 2009 budget. Departments also were asked to trim their operational budgets. Commissioners Diane Mitsch Bush and Nancy Stahoviak, who supported the building department and airport requests, said they did so because the departments are self-funded and not supported by the county’s general fund. Because they are self-funded, any savings realized from the pay cuts would go into their department reserves, not back to the county, they said. “To me, this department is different,” Mitsch Bush said about the building department. “The whole purpose of the pay cut and furloughs was reducing the general fund deficit. This doesn’t reduce the general fund deficit.”

They also noted that the current electrical inspector was the only one working for the county — after the other was laid off a few weeks ago — and needed to work five days a week. Mitsch Bush and Stahoviak said they supported restoring salaries for the airport safety, security and operations and maintenance employees because the FAA requires minimum personnel numbers for those positions. They also noted that airline fees and other charges supported the airport, not the county, and any savings would go into airport reserves. They opted not to approve requests to restore salaries of airport administrative employees because they are not dictated by FAA guidelines. Commissioner Doug Monger said he wasn’t in favor of completely restoring any county employees’ salary. He did suggest restoring 5 percent, which the county may do as part of the 2010 budget. Mitsch Bush and Stahoviak didn’t support that idea but said it would be See Pay, page 16

Heritage Park proposal needs work

F

orgive us for being overcome with a sense of déjà vu. Ty Lockhart and Heritage Park homeowners again are on different sides of the fence regarding proposed changes to the subdivision off U.S. Highway 40 west of Steamboat AT ISSUE Springs. And although Heritage Park we’ve previously had a development hard time sympathizing proposal with the homeowners there, we agree that Lockhart’s proposal OUR VIEW — as submitted — to Lockhart, build three duplexes on county must a parcel of land platted come to for an athletics field falls agreement short of acceptability. Lockhart developed on dedication of open space. Heritage Park in the late 1990s, and part of the Routt County-approved planned unit development called for five parcels of open space to be used for athletic fields. Lockhart retained ownership of the parcels, one of which he gifted to the Christian Heritage School Foundation. But the PUD failed to specify a timeline or funding source for athletic field development. Nonetheless, using Great Outdoors Colorado lottery funds and volunteer labor, two soccer fields were built on two of the open parcels. Through a 20-year agreement with Lockhart, the city of Steamboat Springs maintains those fields

and leases them for $1 a year. A proposal to develop a multi-use field on one of the other parcels stalled in 2005 after Heritage Park homeowners battled the city and Lockhart because of its proposed use, which included Triple Crown baseball games. Neighbors complained about the potential traffic and noise in their subdivision; those complaints coupled with a higher-than-anticipated price tag doomed the development of the field, and the city of Steamboat Springs returned a $150,000 GOCO grant that would have helped fund it. Then, in 2006, Lockhart presented preliminary plans to the Routt County Planning Commission that called for the construction of four duplexes and three single-family homes on two of the open parcels in Heritage Park. “If the homeowners don’t want fields there, we’ll switch horses and put lots there,” Lockhart said at the time. And we sympathized with his position. Heritage Park homeowners seem to want it both ways — open space for athletic fields when it would prevent additional development, and no development of athletic fields when it would mean increased usage and traffic to their neighborhood. Lockhart’s most recent proposal to build three duplexes on the parcel of land adjacent to U.S. Highway 40 at the entrance to Heritage Park, while certainly scaled back from his 2006 plans, not only

takes away one of the parcels originally set aside for athletic fields but fails to provide any sort of community or neighborhood benefit in return. The Routt County Planning Commission approved Lockhart’s proposal by a 5-2 vote in June, but it ran into a stumbling block when reviewed by the Routt County Board of Commissioners last week. Commissioners Nancy Stahoviak and Doug Monger correctly wondered what sort of assurance the county could get from Lockhart that the other four open parcels in Heritage Park would remain protected from future development. Lockhart hesitated to give any long-term commitment to the use of the remaining parcels, and the commissioners tabled his request. They’ve asked him to consider revising it before the issue returns to the commissioners Aug. 11. We agree with the commissioners that if Lockhart wants to take away one of the parcels originally platted for athletic fields, he should provide something in return. On Tuesday, Lockhart said he’s come up with a proposal that he thinks will satisfy the county and Heritage Park homeowners. He declined to offer any details until he presents the plan to the other stakeholder groups. We hope Lockhart’s proposal offers clear community benefit. If it doesn’t, the commissioners should turn down the amended PUD.

An Independence Day column in the Steamboat Today by Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman implied that President Barack Obama’s trillion-dollar stimulus has failed. What was Krugman’s advice? “President Barack Obama and his officials need to ramp up their efforts starting with a plan to make the stimulus bigger.” Isn’t that akin to advising alcoholics to get well by drinking twice their

Third Street intersection needs turn signal common dependency of other economists, including Keynes, is the willing cooperation of private investors, managers of existing companies, and entrepreneurs to invest new capital into the system for purposes of conducting research, expanding operations, replacing obsolete facilities and equipment and in starting different and potentially exciting new enterprises. This requires confidence in the market and one’s government. Unfortunately, there is little confidence today because of the threats and anti-private industry words and actions currently emanating from Washington. One cannot simultaneously be uplifted — encouraged and threatened. FDR, a role model of our current president, told the nation, “There is nothing to fear but fear itself.” Fortunately, we have been spared a repeat of these words, for indeed today there is much to fear.

The economist Joseph Schumpter told us that the very success of capitalism leads to a form of corporatism with values that are at odds with capitalism. Thus, he believed that we need a safety valve called creative destruction, in which companies such as General Motors and Chrysler would be allowed to die — not to live on as government/labor union-owned companies ruled by czars. He also believed that a second safety valve existed in entrepreneurship but that the creation of a welfare state would not permit flourishing entrepreneurship. A government monetary stimulus of even $1 trillion will not work if the famed multiplier effect does not occur. Money is not created by government printing presses but rather by the actions of commercial banks lending funds to credit-worthy borrowers. But banks will not lend money if they are frightened, and credit-worthy borrowers will not take risks and bor-

row funds if they believe the federal government will take from them the fruits of their labor. Another Nobel-winning economist, Friedrick Hayek, warned us not to travel “The Road to Serfdom.” Hayek was against centrally controlled/planned economies. To be fair, some famous economists surely would find favor in the policies and philosophy of the current administration. Foremost among them would be Karl Heinrich Marx.

Hayden no eliminará el servicio del bus Oficiales del Distrito escolar planean reducir el número de paradas Jack Weinstein

HAYDEN

El Distrito Escolar de Hayden no eliminará el servicio del bus el próximo año para estudiantes que viven en la ciudad. En vez, el distrito planea consolidar el número de paradas para reducir el desgaste de los buses y otros vehículos que llevan a los niños hacia y desde la escuela, dijo el Director de Transportes Festus Hagins a la Junta Directiva de la Escuela de Hayden el miércoles por la noche. Hagins presentó a la junta directiva una propuesta preliminar para reducir el número de paradas diarias a 16 de las 42 existentes en la actualidad. Superintendente Greg Rockhold dijo que pidió a Hagins que comenzara a trabajar en la consolidación de las paradas del bus para evitar reco-

ger y dejar a los niños cada 100 yardas — y en algunos casos justo en frente de la puerta de sus casas. Eso ayudaría a ahorrar dinero al distrito en el mantenimiento de los vehículos, él dijo. “Todavía vamos a recoger dentro del pueblo,” dijo Rockhold. “No estamos pidiendo a los niños que crucen la Carretera 40. Estamos usando un modo más eficiente.”

Hagins dijo que eliminando unas paradas, algunos niños tendrían que caminar un poco más para ser recogidos. Ningún niño tendría que caminar más de media milla, ni tendrían que cruzar la carretera 40. Algunas paradas en la mañana y la tarde serán diferentes para mantener a los niños lejos de la carretera. Pensar que los niños caminen por media milla en la nieve dejó a muchos padres, quienes atendieron la reunión del miércoles, un poco preocupados.

Padre Leslie Hockaday circuló una petición cuando ella escuchó por primera vez acerca del rumor que el distrito estaba considerando cortar el servicio del bus para aquellos que vivían en el pueblo. Ella dijo que más de 100 personas firmaron la petición, nombrando a la seguridad como la mayor preocupación. Lori Laird, quien su nieto de 8 años iría a la Escuela Primaria Hayden Valley el próximo año escolar, dijo que aún gente que no tenían niños en las escuelas de Hayden firmaron la petición por la aprensión de manejar por el pueblo con niños caminando por las calles. “La seguridad es nuestra mayor preocupación,” ella dijo. “No tenemos ningún problema con que cambien las rutas. No tenemos ningún problema que combinen algunas paradas. Estamos preocupados acerca de la seguridad de nuestros niños.”

Ellos estuvieron especialmente preocupados por las paradas en la Carretera 40. “No creo que todos deberían tener paradas al frente de sus casas; no es lo que estoy tratando de decir,” dijo padre Selena Frentress. “Yo creo que debes considerar el aspecto de la seguridad.” Ella dijo que los asuntos de seguridad se iniciaron a causa de la falta de luces en las calles, banquetas y cruces peatonales. En el invierno, cuando la nieve se acumula tanto como su altura, dijo Frentress, no había donde caminar excepto en la Carretera 40. Amanda Archuleta, otro padre, dijo que ella ha vivido en la Carretera 40 por cinco años y que no consideraría enviar a sus niños a la parada del bus al lado de la carretera. “Ni siquiera creo que la Carretera 40 está cerca de estar más o menos,” ella dijo.

From Food to Fuel: Jumping on the Green Bandwagon Kyleigh DeMicco

Steamboat Sustainable Business Program

What does it mean for a restaurant to be sustainable? Consumers visit dining venues and seldom think about the implications on the environment. With the thousands of pounds of food production each year, it seems unimaginable to reduce energy and limit waste from glass, cans, boxes, paper products and more. They all are essential to the restaurant operation. How can the restaurant industry even fathom the idea of going green? It sounds hard, time-consuming and costly. Rest assured that it doesn’t have to be. Products and services that are relatively new and are becoming more cost competitive, such as recycled and biodegradable products, commercial composting, energy efficient appliances, as well as the availability of local products, are making these efforts more feasible. The number of individuals across the world concerned with their environmental impact is encouraging restaurants to become more environmentally responsible. Restaurants nationally are making efforts to reduce waste. The request and demand of credible green products increasingly is making it more attractive for restaurants to look to sustainable practices. What about locally? Are restaurants in the Yampa Valley able to jump on the green bandwagon? The answer is without a doubt. Local restaurants and businesses are taking environmental sustainability into account and are incorporating sustainability into the workplace. Education, consultation and credibility also are important. The Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association

The Steamboat Sustainable Business Program offers restaurants a wide variety of tools, products and practices to help them go green. By participating in the program, some of the things you will learn about include: ■ Manage cooking equipment effectively. Equipment is essential to food preparation and vital to restaurant production. They also are some of the biggest energy consumers and can drain profits if not managed properly. Cutting energy here will show a considerable improvement to the bottom line. ■ Buy post-consumer products whenever possible. No more Styrofoam. This means the item was made entirely from recycled materials. Cups, glasses, plates, silverware, napkins, towels and take-out dishes can be post-consumer products made from recycled or biodegradable products. ■ Recycle. Set up a recycling program with the local recycling/waste establishments. Glass, plastic, cardboard, wood boxes, newspapers and even kitchen oil can be recycled. Customers who see a strong recycling program in a restaurant feel good about the establishment, and that can mean a lot more than the cost of recycling. ■ Buy locally. When possible, try to buy local products from surrounding community members or businesses. Local beef, chicken, eggs and produce can be bought here in the Yampa Valley.

and Environmental Solutions Unlimited started the Sustainable Business Program in 2007 to encompass all realms of business operation to be educated and more sustainable. From lodging properties, real estate offices, construction companies, to restaurants; any business can enroll and be successful. Five restaurants in the Yampa Valley have received certification from the Sustainable Business Program as a result of the owners and employees being committed to the cause. Bistro c.v. was the first restaurant in our area to achieve Gold Certification, and the Ore House at Pine Grove has fol-

■ Manage hot water efficiently. Hot water heaters drain energy. Restaurants go through a lot of hot water, and anything to improve the efficiency of heating water also helps save money. ■ Support organic bar products. Allnatural and organic beers, wines and mixers are growing in popularity and availability. ■ Check the seals on your entrances. If seals are not kept clean and tight, cold air can seep in, causing the heating system to work harder. Costs and energy use increases. ■ Use compact fluorescent or LED bulbs. They use about 75 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs — and CFLs last 10 times longer, giving them the environmental and economic advantage. ■ Join a co-op. If you’re a smaller restaurant or café, without the needs or ability for storage space, look into joining (or forming) a local co-op for purchasing green items. Cleaning supplies, paper products, etc, all are cheaper in bulk. ■ Educate your staff and community. They need to know why you’re doing what you’re doing, so that they can spread the word to the patrons and beyond.

lowed suit. The Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant recently joined the program. Rex Brice, owner of Mazzola’s, Rex’s American Grill & Bar, and Big House Burgers also saw a need for his restaurants to be more sustainable, and all three participate in the Steamboat Sustainable Business Program. “I started to notice the impact of the restaurants on the community and saw a need to act in a sustainable manner,” Brice said. The employees started to take simple measures such as recycling, using more recycled products to lower waste, and buying local beef, chicken, eggs

and produce when possible. “It made sense to enroll all three restaurants in the Sustainable Business Program to learn more and become more conscious of our impacts on the community,” Brice said. One might not know that leftover grease from Rex’s famous shoestring fries and the oil from Mazzola’s chicken parmesan is actually made into “greasle” — otherwise known as biodiesel. Some locals are driving cars powered by the leftover cooking oil. All three of Rex’s restaurants have collection receptacles where individuals in the community have an arranged “greasle” pickup. Brian Vaughn and Kevin Caparrelli, owners of bistro c.v., joined the Sustainable Business Program because operating and serving sustainable products is a key element to their business. The owners have made an effort to find family owned and operated farms supporting sustainable agriculture as well

as sustainable aquaculture. “It is important to take the extra time to find these small farms because you end up with a better product that makes a difference in the taste and quality of the food,” Vaughn said. “Moving in the sustainable direction does take effort, education and more money up front, but in the end, it saves money and you realize the positive environmental and community impact,” Brice said. This is the great thing about going green in restaurants or any business — it cuts costs and saves considerable amounts of money while improving customer loyalty and visibility at the same time. Studies show that consumers still want green products and services, even if they have to pay more for them. In a time when cutting costs might seem like the sink-or-swim approach, going green might contribute to helping a business afloat. From food to fuel, greasle has gone green.

In her second summer teaching aerial dance at Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp, Janet Taisey Craft introduces her students to a new style by showing them a canvas sling and a handhold. From there, aspiring high school- and college-age professional dancers learn the ropes of aerial dance by swinging from them, creating duet and group movements until, five weeks later, they end up with an original work. Craft’s “Traveler” — inspired by text by travel writer Paul Theroux and set to music composed for the work by faculty member Paula Jeanine Bennett

Group pushes for 700 vote Community Alliance launches petition drive for ballot question Tom Ross

PILOT & TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Members of the Community Alliance intend to hit the streets this weekend with a petition drive meant to ensure public votes on future major annexations to Steamboat Springs. Steve Aigner, community organizer for the Community Alliance of the Yampa Valley, gave the Steamboat Springs City Council an ultimatum to that effect Tuesday night at Centennial Hall. “If you don’t decide this evening to instruct the city attorney to prepare an ordinance that would put on the fall ballot a proposal to amend the Home Rule Charter so that there will be a public vote on all substantial annexation, then starting tomorrow, the Community Alliance will initiate a petition drive to amend the Home Rule Charter,” Aigner read from a prepared statement. After leaving City Council chambers in Centennial Hall, he said things would begin to happen quickly. “Tomorrow we intend to file a statement signed by five persons at the city clerk’s office,” Aigner said Tuesday night. “We should be in the streets with petitions by this weekend.” Council has set tentative dates of Sept. 22 and Oct. 13 for votes on first and second readings of an annexation ordinance for the Steamboat 700 proposal just west of city limits. The outcome of a Community Alliance ballot question would not be known until after those annexation votes. However, Tuesday’s City Council agenda packet explained that a successful petition and ballot question could refer a Steamboat 700 annexation ordinance back to City Council for scheduling of a public vote on its fate. Aigner began his remarks by reminding City Council that on July 7, Councilwoman Meg Bentley made a motion that her colleagues direct the city attor-

ney to craft an ordinance that would amend the city charter to require a public vote on annexations. Councilman Steve Ivancie seconded her motion, which subsequently was defeated. “In voting the motion down, 5-2, you seemed to dismiss the arguments made for the motion,” Aigner told City Council. “We would like you to reconsider that motion and support it. Are you willing to do that this evening?” Aigner’s remarks came during the regular 7 p.m. time slot reserved for public comments on matters not on the agenda. City Council consistently has declined to discuss non-agenda items on the spot and met Aigner’s question with impassive faces. Asked after the meeting whether she approved of the course being plotted by the Community Alliance, Bentley said, “I do think it needs to be done.” Bentley said she had been a member of the Community Alliance for many years and added that Aigner had encouraged her to make her motion July 7. However, she said it was something she had contemplated from the time of her election to City Council in November 2007. “Steve and I talked about it, but I’m not his front-woman,” Bentley said. “I made the motion because I think the people need to have a voice in this. It will have a big impact on Steamboat Springs, and the people living here should have a direct say in it.” Aigner said he began broaching the subject of the petition drive with fellow Community Alliance members late last week. He said the group’s board of directors unanimously supported the initiative. Aigner declined to name the members of the board of directors without their prior approval. The success of future ballot petition drives could be directly affected by a separate City Council vote Tuesday. Council members voted on first reading to pass an ordinance placing a ques-

tion on the Nov. 3 ballot seeking to amend Article 8 of the city’s Home Rule Charter. The ordinance would reduce the threshold for a successful petition from obtaining signatures of 20 percent of qualified voters in the last election to 10 percent in conformance with the state constitution.

Asked whether Tuesday’s action by commissioners would be the impetus for him to file legal action against the county, Wall said he was going to continue to assess his options after commissioners had treated the Sheriff’s Office “so blatantly different” than the airport. 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. Layoffs in the building department, which included the electrical inspector and a plans examiner, were done separately because the department is self-funded. Other vacant county positions were frozen or eliminated earlier this year. Cuts also were made to county capital and operational expenditures. — To reach Jack Weinstein, call 871-4203 or e-mail jweinstein@steamboatpilot.com

pounds of fudge during the first year. Although she no longer owns the gift shop, former customers still stop in the Hahn’s Peak Café to ask where the fudge is. “The friendships are the best part,” Carolyn said. “I’ve had repeat customers for years. It’s so fun to see them every summer.” But the marina is not the only place where she sees her fans. Once, when she took her grandchildren to the Old Town Hot Springs, cries of “There’s the Fudge Lady!” greeted her from the pool. If there were a Fudge Hall of Fame, Carolyn would be the star of it. During the summer, she makes 75 pounds every other week. To find her, all you

have to do is follow your nose. The irresistible smell of rich, creamy chocolate will lead you to a small kitchen located in the back of the marina store. Something about this woman brings to mind a ballet. Her movements are graceful, fluid, almost choreographed. She’s been dancing the same dance for 16 years, but there’s joy in every step as she turns to slice open the bags of ingredients, slices the butter and pours the warm fudge into the pans. Her laughter floats in the air and then is carried off into the building, making everyone who hears it smile. Yes, the dry ingredients are special — shipped from Calico Cottage in Amityville, N.Y. — but they are purchased. The love that Carolyn White stirs into each batch and the pride

she takes in her fudge are the secret ingredients. Those are what make fudge fans out of everyone who tastes her work. The Fudge Lady made some new fans recently, when the Denver Broncos cheerleaders came to Steamboat Lake for a photo shoot. Keela Harris, a former Denver Broncos cheerleader, posted this on the cheerleader’s blog: “One of the most memorable parts of our trip back to the Marina was the sweet treat at the end. Karl, the Marina manager, gave us samples of the best fudge in Colorado. The Fudge Lady makes this infamous fudge, and I can vouch that this was without a doubt the sweetest way to finish off the day!” Three cheers and a hip-hip, hooray for the Fudge Lady.

Sheriff Gary Wall repeatedly has requested that his deputies’ salaries be restored. He attended Tuesday’s meeting. Afterward, he said the commissioners did something “none of us thought could happen and further devastated morale of the employees of this county.” Wall said commissioners referred to the airport as a separate entity from the county. He said his office is a separate

entity, constitutionally and statutorily. “I find it unbelievable and unfair to my employees because every one of my employees deals with life and safety issues in this county,” he said. “They exempted airport employees who deal with life and safety issues and yet, not mine.” Wall said the commissioners exempted the building department employee and the airport employees, but not his own, for one of two reasons. “They care less about public safety and law enforcement in Routt County,” he said. “Or this is a political and personal retribution toward me to not exempt my employees for the same reason they exempted airport employees. You’re either a county employee, or you’re not. I find what they did unbelievable, and the effect on the rest of the county employees remains to be seen.”

Person who shot bear faces fines, jail time Bear shootings are not unheard of in rural areas, Haskins said, but he could not remember any other case when a bear had been shot in town. A person legally can shoot a bear if they are a licensed hunter, a landowner protecting livestock or if they are acting in self-defense, Haskins said. Haskins said the trash con-

tainer was bear-resistant, not bear-proof. A carabiner secured the closed lid, but Haskins said the bear was able to get inside. Another bear call, presumably about the same bear, was reported nearby at 10 p.m. Anderson called police at 10:13 p.m. The person who shot the bear faces “many thousands of dollars in fines,” Haskins said, and potentially jail time, depending on how the case is prosecuted.

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

The bear first will be kept as evidence and examined as part of the investigation, then it will be skinned, Haskins said. The pelt will be used for education or may be sold at a Division of Wildlife auction to raise funds. Steamboat Springs Police Department officers also responded to the call. Capt. Joel Rae said the police will assist Division of Wildlife officers however they can.

37 dancers to perform in weekend event Dance continued from 14 to solve problems by getting in and out of hanging canvas slings promotes collaboration beyond normal levels. Craft tapped into that spirit by having her students write journals about the experience of coming to PerryMansfield from varying places, working with Theroux’s text in the movement and the music. “They really are getting … experience of what it is to collaborate and create a work,” Craft said. Dancers in all pieces are asked to reach outside of their abilities, dance program director Linda Kent said. The program includes a mix of new works and repertory pieces, offering students the chance to be part of something new or to add their own interpretation to an existing work, she said. “Each year, when I’m teaching dance … just seeing how much they’ve achieved and

the confidence they’re gaining, people leave here changed, they really do,” Kent said. “It sort of galvanizes the process for people — this is the way it’s going to be to have that professional intensity.” “Evening of Dance” features 37 high school- and college-age dancers, with dances including modern, ballet, aerial and other styles. Pieces by Robert Battle open and close the night. Battle was a guest choreographer at the first Perry-Mansfield New Works Festival. Excerpts from a Paul Taylor work called “Cloven Kingdom” depict high society and its occasional animal aspects. Faculty member Nicholas Villeneuve will do a short voiceover during “Suite Jamaica,” a piece he choreographed and costumed. The work is high-energy, packing 24 dancers onto the Main Studio stage, Kent said. Camille A. Brown, guest

choreographer at the 2009 New Works Festival, contributed a piece called “Shining Hour” that will feature nine students who worked on the piece during the festival, along with additional student dancers to fill out the lineup. Jennifer Golonka, a faculty member in her seventh summer at Perry-Mansfield, choreographed a lyrical movement piece called “Redirect.” The work features 12 dancers and a lot of push-and-pull motion, depicting a change in life direction, Golonka said. Ballet faculty teacher Rick McCullough choreographed a contemporary pointe piece called “Rain,” inspired in part by the weather in Steamboat when McCullough got to town in June, Kent said. “We have some amazing dancers this year, and he just pushed them. That’s what we do here, is push people to new heights,” Kent said.

of 40 felonies have been charged to those arrested. Commander Garrett Wiggins said ACET conducts 50 to 60 investigations annually.

Basalt counts on summer revenue 2 brush fires burn Scott Condon THE ASPEN TIMES

BASALT

Basalt’s sales tax revenues were down 10 percent for the first half of the town’s fiscal year, but officials hope for a boost from a home-grown mini-stimulus package and a busy summer season. The town collected $1.65 million in sales tax revenues from December through May this year, compared to $1.83 million last year, according to

a report from town Finance Director Judi Tippetts. She noted that the statistics don’t reflect the stimulus package the town launched in June. The town government and chamber of commerce threw a pig roast for the public along with a promotion at Basalt stores and restaurants. Consumers get a $30 gift certificate for each $300 in purchases at participating businesses. The certificates can be redeemed at Basalt stores and restaurants. The town is investing public

funds to reimburse businesses for the $30 gift certificates. Council members said they think it is an effective way to use funds to benefit the town. The usually busy summer season also may spur a resurgence in sales tax revenues. The town’s busiest season is summer because of fishing, golf and tourism. The first half of the fiscal year was rough on the major sectors of Basalt’s economy. Retail food sales were down 1 percent.

Election turnout encourages Town Manager Hayden continued from 1 represent 13 percent of the 991 people registered to vote in Hayden. Eighty people voted in the March election that set the nine-member Charter Commission. That commission consisted of Hayden School District Superintendent Greg Rockhold, the chairman; Vice Chairman Bill Irvine; Secretary James Folley; Gordon Dowling; Trustee Richard “Festus” Hagins; Mayor Lorraine Johnson; James Lewis; Bryan Strickland; and Hayden High School Principal Troy Zabel. Folley’s wife, Joyce Folley,

was among voters Tuesday. “In reading everything, I think we’re going to have more of a say in what happens in town than when the state regulates it,” she said. Under statutory rule, Hayden is governed by state statutes. Home rule allows it to create a charter for its own governance. According to the document, “This Charter shall become effective immediately upon its filing and recording with the Colorado Secretary of State” after a majority of votes in favor of it. Town Clerk Susan Irvine said she probably would mail the charter to the state today but wasn’t sure when it

would be filed and recorded. Martin said he was encouraged by the turnout and the outcome. “We’ve made some progress in people’s understanding or desire to vote,” he said. The town manager stressed that the Town Board, which will become the Town Council when the state officially accepts the charter, could not increase taxes on its own. “They’ll just approve the ordinance to be placed on the ballot in the general election,” Martin said. — To reach Blythe Terrell, call 871-4234 or e-mail bterrell@steamboatpilot.com

SKY-HI DAILY NEWS

GRAND COUNTY

Two brush fires in two areas of Grand County burned nearly 4 acres collectively Friday. The first fire started burning at about 3 p.m. at mile marker 182 at the intersection of Grand County Road 12 and U.S. Highway 40 in Kremmling. It burned 3 acres. High winds and low humidity that day burned sage clover and grass, threatening three structures, said Kremmling Fire Protection District spokeswoman Rachel Wood. The source of the fire is under investigation, she said. “I do believe the fire season may have started,” Wood said. Although no one needed to be evacuated, U.S. 40 was closed because of heavy smoke, and C.R. 12 was shut down to accommodate fire apparatus. The roadways opened about 30 minutes later when the fire was contained, Wood said. Kremmling Fire Protection District was assisted by Hot Sulphur Springs Fire, Grand Fire (Granby), the U.S. Forest Service, Grand County EMS and Kremmling police. Grand Lake Fire also was

called for mutual aid, but en-route to Kremmling, Grand Lake’s two trucks turned around when called to a slash-pile burn at the Winding River Resort up C.R. 491 in the Grand Lake area. The U.S. Forest Service helped Grand Lake Fire knock down flames before the fire spread into nearby forestlands. The burn amounted to a 30foot-by-40-foot area upon containment. Four wildland engines and as many as 10 wildland certified firefighters, plus additional crew, were on scene. The fire originated from a slash pile where resort personnel dumped campfire embers, said Grand Lake Fire Protection District spokeswoman Mindy Everhart. The resort’s policy was for volunteers to dispose of ashes there, she said. Grand Lake Fire since has educated the resort on proper disposal.

Utility crews worked Tuesday to restore power to thousands of people after a strong storm system snapped power poles and downed trees throughout the region. Residents removed tree branches and debris from their yards and washed leaf-covered cars after the rough weather Monday night brought two weak tornadoes, rain, hail and a possible microburst, a condition that can unleash winds as fast as

100 mph for 15 to 30 minutes. As many as 90,000 customers lost power when the storm battered southern and western Denver suburbs, Xcel Energy said. About 25,000 homes and businesses still were without electricity Tuesday. Xcel said it could take until Wednesday evening for crews to complete their work. Xcel spokesman Tom Henley said the utility was dealing with extreme circumstances to restore power in some areas, including using cranes to remove power poles that snapped in two and

replacing them with new ones. Minor injures were reported because of broken windows during the storms, but no one was hospitalized, said Wheat Ridge police spokeswoman Lisa Stigall. The hail was pea-sized and larger, “but it came down with such force that it smashed everything it came in contact with,” shredding screen doors and tree leaves and breaking windows in houses and cars, she said. Leaves covered some streets in suburban Wheat Ridge up to people’s ankles, as they removed tree branches from their yards.

He said the federal government needs to mitigate the risk of accidents to a major waterway and prove it can care for the wastes “into perpetuity.” The hearing was the first of seven meetings by the U.S. Department of Energy involving a proposal to store 17,000 tons of hazardous mercury near a federal dump site for uranium wastes south of Grand Junction. Other proposed sites and hearings include the Idaho National Laboratory, the Hanford nuclear reservation in Washington state, Hawthorne Army Depot in Nevada, Kansas City Plant in Missouri, the Savannah River Site in South Carolina, and Waste Control Specialists in Andrews, Texas.

Colorado’s health director told federal regulators on Tuesday that he has serious concerns about a proposed mercury storage site in western Colorado.

James Martin gave the Department of Energy a statement saying the federal government would have to prove the facility would not hurt air and water quality before the state would allow the facility to be built in Colorado. “While we will maintain an open mind and will participate constructively throughout this process, we enter it with substantial skepticism that this is an appropriate site for the long-term disposal of elemental mercury,” Martin said. Martin said many of the routes to the disposal site cross the Colorado River, which could endanger water supplies for millions of people across the West.

Democratic Sens. Mark Udall and Michael Bennet asked the Army on Tuesday to include Fort Carson. An Army report released last week said the trauma of combat in Iraq may have helped drive

The Senate voted to terminate further production of the Air Force’s topline F-22 fighter jets Tuesday, giving President Barack Obama a major spending victory and siding with the Pentagon’s desire for smaller jets better suited to 21st century wars. F-22 supporters complained the action would be a blow to long-term national defense — and cost thousands of jobs in the middle of the recession. The 58-40 vote to cut the money from a $680 billion defense bill was a hard-fought victory for Obama, who had threatened to veto defense spending legislation if it included funds for more F22s. Wavering lawmakers heard repeatedly from Vice President Joe Biden, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and other senior administration officials. The vote was “a signal that we are not going to continue to build weapons systems with cost overruns which outlive their requirements for defending this nation,” declared Republican Sen. John McCain, of Arizona, who joined Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin in arguing for cutting off production. The $1.75 billion was aimed at adding seven F-22s to the current plan to deploy 187 of the twin-engine stealth planes. Of those 187, the Air Force has received 143 and is waiting for delivery of 44 more. Gates, first appointed by President George W. Bush, wants to shift military spending to programs more attuned to today’s unconventional wars. The F-22, designed for midair combat, has been irrelevant to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and therefore unused there. Gates and other Pentagon officials want to put more emphasis on the next-generation F-35 Lightning, a single-engine jet that would be used primarily to attack targets on the ground and would replace the F-16 and the Air Force’s aging fleet of A10s. The Air Force plans to buy more than 1,700 F-35s, which are being produced in small numbers for testing purposes. Versions of that plane, known as the Joint Strike Fighter, also are being built for the Navy and Marine Corps, another plus for supporters.

House Democrats put their divisions on display over the details and timing of health care legislation Tuesday despite fresh attempts by President Barack Obama to hasten a compromise on the issue that looms increasingly as a major test of his clout. With a self-imposed deadline for action in jeopardy, the Democratic leadership juggled complaints from conservatives demanding additional cost savings, first-term lawmakers upset with proposed tax increases and objections from members of the rank-and-file opposed to allowing the government to sell insurance in competition with private industry. “No one wants to tell the speaker that she’s moving too fast and they damn sure don’t want to tell the president,” Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., a key committee chairman, told a fellow lawmaker

as the two walked into a closeddoor meeting. The remark was overheard by reporters. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, DCalif., vowed weeks ago that the House would vote by the end of July on legislation to meet two goals established by Obama months ago. The president wants legislation to extend health coverage to the tens of millions who now lack it, at the same time it restrains the growth in the cost of health care far into the future. The president also has vowed the legislation will not swell the deficit, although a senior administration official told reporters Tuesday that the pledge does not apply to an estimated $245 billion to increase fees for doctors serving Medicare patients during the next decade. Peter Orszag, the White House budget director, said that was because the administration always assumed the money would be spent to avert a scheduled cut of 21 percent in doctor’s fees. At the White House, Obama and moderate and conserva-

The hope and optimism that washed over the country in the opening months of Barack Obama’s presidency are giving way to harsh realities. An Associated Press-GfK Poll shows that a majority of Americans are back to thinking that the country is headed in the wrong direction after a fleeting period in which more thought it

was on the right track. Obama still has a solid 55 percent approval rating — better than Bill Clinton and about even with George W. Bush six months into their presidencies — but there are growing doubts about whether he can succeed at some of the biggest items on his to-do list. And there is a growing sense that he is trying to tackle too much too soon. The number of people who think Obama can improve the economy is down a sobering 19 percentage points from the euphoric days just before his inauguration. Ditto for expectations about creating jobs. Also down significantly: the share of people who think he can reduce the deficit, remove troops from Iraq and improve respect for the U.S. around the world, all slipping 15 points. On overhauling health care, a signature issue for Obama, hopes for success are down a lesser 6 points. Add it all up, and does it mean Obama has lost his mojo? Has yes-we-can morphed into maybe? “I think it’s just reality,” said Sandy Smith, a 48-year-old public relations worker from Los Angeles. “He’s not Superman, right?” Indeed, it’s not unusual for approval ratings to slide once presidents actually get to work. They’re pulled down by things going on in the real world, by people who don’t agree with the ways they’re addressing problems, by criticism from political opponents. In Obama’s case, the problems

he’s confronting domestically and internationally are legion, and his ability to blame them on his predecessor is fading. Challenges still abound in Iraq and Afghanistan. Unemployment, at 7.6 percent in January, hit 9.5 percent in June and is expected to keep rising well into next year. Almost 4 percent of homeowners with mortgages are in foreclosure, and an additional 8 percent are at least a month behind on payments — the highest levels since the Great Depression.

Lawmakers pitch deficit plan Legislators in California begin lobbying to close $26B shortfall THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

AROUND THE NATION

SACRAMENTO, CALIF.

California’s legislative leaders on Tuesday began lobbying their rank-and-file members to vote for a compromise designed to close the state’s $26 billion shortfall even as advocates objected to health care, transportation and public safety cuts. The Republican and Democratic leaders of the Assembly and Senate began briefing their caucuses on a plan backed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to close the gap by cutting spending, taking money from local government and speeding up tax collections. The state needs to pass a revised annual spending plan before the state can assess its finances and stop the state from issuing more IOUs. “Getting this budget agreement enacted will be a big step forward, but our state still has a lot of hard work and sacrifice ahead before we are out of the woods,” state Treasurer Bill Lockyer said in a statement Tuesday. Lawmakers already have begun hearing from law enforcement agencies, local governments and union officials about the potential effects of the budget deal. A contentious vote is expected Thursday.

Panel delays Sotomayor vote as GOP support grows WASHINGTON

The Senate Judiciary Committee put off its vote Tuesday on Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor for one week amid objections from the panel’s conservative Republicans, even as the judge’s support among GOP moderates continued to grow. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the Judiciary chairman, said his panel will vote on Sotomayor’s nomination Tuesday and expressed confidence she would win confirmation by a bipartisan vote of the full Senate in time for the Supreme Court’s earlier-thanusual first meeting Sept. 9. His prediction came as Sen. Susan Collins, of Maine, became the latest Republican to publicly commit to voting for President Barack Obama’s first high court pick. “I know that I will not agree with every decision Justice Sotomayor reaches on the court, just as I disagree with some of her previous decisions,” Collins said in a statement. However, she added that she thinks Sotomayor “understands the proper role of a judge and is committed to applying the law impartially without bias or favoritism.”

For more people, scales tip toward buying a home For Americans debating whether to buy or rent their homes, the scales are tipping toward ownership. Because of the slide in home prices, low interest rates and tax incentives, renters are realizing they could handle a mortgage for a just little more money. An Associated Press analysis of 45 metro areas finds the gap between the monthly mortgage payment on a median-priced home and the median rent has shrunk from $777 a month to just $221 in the past three years. It could mean a quicker end to the housing-market doldrums, as renters buy up unsold homes languishing on the market. In once-inflated markets such as Phoenix, Las Vegas and inland swaths of California and Florida, where prices have tumbled more than 40 percent, sales are increasing because first-time homebuyers are snapping up bargain-priced homes. They are getting help from a federal tax credit that covers 10 percent of the home price or up to $8,000 for first-time buyers who earn as much as $75,000 a year, or $150,000 for a couple. The credit expires at the end of November.

Taliban kill 6 in attacks in 2 Afghanistan cities GARDEZ, AFGHANISTAN

Suspected Taliban militants armed with bombs, rifles and

rocket-propelled grenades launched near-simultaneous assaults Tuesday on Afghan and U.S. facilities in two eastern cities, killing six Afghan police and intelligence officers. The attacks in Gardez and Jalalabad may have been aimed at relieving pressure on Taliban fighters in southern Afghanistan — the focus of U.S. and British operations against the hard-line Islamic militants. A quick response by Afghan police and soldiers prevented higher casualties. Eight insurgents were killed and one was captured in the two attacks, officials said, adding that none got away. Nevertheless, the assaults showed that the Taliban are capable of mounting complex attacks in different parts of the country, stretching the capabilities of U.S. and allied forces locked in the bloodiest fighting of the Afghan war. Militants, some of them wearing explosive belts and disguised in women’s burqa robes, launched the attacks in late morning, storming the governor’s compound, the intelligence department and the police department in Gardez and the U.S.-run airfield in Jalalabad about 90 miles to the northeast.

Some Muslim countries are advising pregnant women not to attend the hajj pilgrimage. China is quarantining any visitor suspected of having a fever, while priests in New Zealand have been banned from placing Communion wafers on worshippers’ tongues. It’s all part of a global effort to slow the spread of swine flu until a vaccine is ready, although experts are divided on whether the measures will work. Deaths from the H1N1 virus have doubled in the past three weeks, to more than 700 from about 330 at the start of July, the agency said. The race is now on to develop a vaccine that is effective against the pandemic strain before the flu season begins this fall in the northern hemisphere. Estimates for when a vaccine will be available range from September to December. In the meantime, the U.N. health agency is working with its national counterparts across the world to examine what countries can do.

Two more Web sites dedicated to social networking went offline in China on Tuesday amid tightening controls that have blocked Facebook, Twitter and other popular sites that offered many Chinese a rare taste of free expression. China’s crackdown on social networking sites began in March, when Chinese Web users found they no longer could visit YouTube shortly after video appeared on the site purporting to show Chinese security officials mistreating Tibetans. The blockages continued through the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square demonstrations and the recent ethnic riots in Xinjiang, with homegrown and overseas micro-blogging and photo-sharing sites among those targeted. Though cutting off access to sites can often be traced to a specific trigger — such as the June 4 Tiananmen anniversary — experts say the fact the sites are not coming back online shows the harsh measures are part of a long-term strategy to pare back the power of the Internet and silence some voices finding expression here.

Thousands in Taregna, India, for total solar eclipse today TAREGNA, INDIA

Scientists, students and nature enthusiasts prepared Tuesday for the longest total solar eclipse of the 21st century, while millions planned to shutter themselves indoors, giving in to superstitious myths about the phenomenon. The eclipse — visible only in Asia — will first be sighted at dawn Wednesday in India’s Gulf of Khambhat and will reach its peak in India at about 6:20 a.m. local time (6:50 p.m. MDT), and will last 6 minutes and 39 seconds at its maximum point. It is the longest such eclipse since July 11, 1991, when a total eclipse lasting 6 minutes, 53 seconds was visible from Hawaii to South America. There will not be a longer eclipse than Wednesday’s until 2132. Wednesday’s eclipse will be seen for 3 minutes and 48 seconds in the Indian village of Taregna, where scientists say residents will have the clearest view.

Clinton to Asia: US to broaden its partnerships BANGKOK

On her second trip to Asia as U.S. secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton is carrying a no-nonsense message about American intentions. “The United States is back,” she declared Tuesday upon arrival in the Thai capital. By that, she means the administration of President Barack Obama thinks it’s time to show Asian nations that the United States is not distracted by its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and intends to broaden and deepen its partnerships in this region. Clinton trumpeted that line Wednesday in an appearance with a prominent TV personality before flying to a seaside resort at Phuket for two days of international meetings to discuss North Korea, Myanmar and a range of other regional issues. Clinton said she would, as previously announced, sign ASEAN’s seminal Treaty of Amity and Cooperation, a commitment to peacefully resolve regional disputes that already has been signed by more than a dozen countries outside the 10nation bloc. The U.S. signing will be by the executive authority of Obama and does not require congressional ratification, said a senior administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the move publicly.

Local tennis pro Marie Matrka traveled to Cincinnati last week with hopes of earning her third straight title in the Thomas E. Price Metropolitan Tennis Championships. But Saturday, after falling behind, 5-0, in the first set of the finals, the chances of the Tennis Center at Steamboat Springs pro becoming the first woman to win three straight

singles titles were slim. “I needed a change,” Matrka said. “She wasn’t attacking me. But she has some great lob and passing shots.” The strategy was the perfect answer to Matrka’s normally aggressive style, and contender Jenny Belsky used it to race to a 6-2 first set victory. Matrka shifted her game near the end of that set, however, and felt like she found a way to fend off her opponent’s passive style. “I dropped back and rallied

from the baseline,” Matrka said. “I was still aggressive, but I tried to pick when I attacked, and I took advantage of the opportunities she gave me.” The move was successful, and Matrka roared back in the second set, winning, 6-1. “The set was a lot closer than the score,” she said. “We played a lot of long points, and it wasn’t as easy as the score reflected.” See Tennis, page 32

Miguel Montero singled and scored the tying run in the seventh inning and then hit a tworun home run in the eighth, lifting the Arizona Diamondbacks past the Colorado Rockies, 6-5, Tuesday night. Mark Reynolds began the decisive rally with a one-out TUESDAY’S single off reliever GAME: Juan Rincon (1-1). D-BACKS 6 Montero followed Rockies 5 with a drive that sailed over the center-field fence for his eighth homer of the season and a 6-4 Diamondbacks lead. Pinch-hitter Ryan Spilborghs tripled off the right-field scoreboard to pull the Rockies within a run in the eighth, but it wasn’t enough. Juan Gutirerrez (2-2) picked up the win with an inning of scoreless relief. Chad Qualls got four outs for his 18th save in 22 chances. Aaron Cook, bidding for a seventh consecutive winning decision, went 6 1/3 innings and gave up eight hits and four runs, the last of which evened the score at 4-all. Montero led off the seventh with a single and Cook got Chris Young to pop out before being relieved by Franklin Morales. Successive walks to pinch-hitter Josh Whitesell and Augie Ojeda loaded the bases before Stephen Drew singled for the fourth time, scoring Montero with the tying run. Arizona pulled to 3-1 on Justin Upton’s run-scoring groundout in the fourth but the Rockies scored again in their half of the inning. Cook had his second sacrifice of the night to put Chris Iannetta into scoring position at second base, and Dexter Fowler singled with two outs for the second time to once again give the Rockies a threerun cushion.

swim,” she said. “They’re very supportive of us. But our secret is our coaching. Every single one really cares about these kids and wants them to do their best.” Steamboat took 63 swimmers to Grand Junction to compete against many larger and yearround teams. Montrose finished first with 2,925.5 points. Team Sopris Swimming finished second with 1,901.5 points, Grand Junction finished third with 1,840.5 points and Steamboat finished fourth with 1,770.5 points. “The coolest thing is, all three teams that finished ahead of us were bigger teams than we were,” Kenttala said. “I was blown away by how well we did.” Maybe the most impressive thing and brightest sign for the future was that Steamboat won the 8-and-younger portion of the meet.

Paced by several strong relay teams and individual performances, Steamboat’s 8-andyounger team bested Montrose by more than 60 points. Racing in high temperatures that reached more than 100 degrees, Kenttala said it was tough to stay hydrated. Although the Western Slope Championships concluded the season for most of Team Lightning — Frank Ruppel and Keala Fraioli will swim in Thursday’s Junior Olympics in Fort Collins — Kenttala said this was one of the best years for the team. “I would like to say that our Ski Town USA could be called Swim Town Colorado during the summer,” she said. “We are very proud to be one of the best summer swim teams, if not the best in Colorado.” — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail lgraham@steamboatpilot.com

NFL commissioner hasn’t revealed whether he’ll reinstate Vick

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell isn’t revealing when he’ll decide whether to reinstate Michael Vick now that the former Atlanta Falcons star quarterback has been released from federal custody. “The process is ongoing, and I hope to make a decision sometime in the near future,” Goodell

“We’re not going to give any details right now,” he said after a news conference announcing singer Marc Anthony’s involvement with the NFL. The commissioner has said he wants to see remorse and evidence of change from the player he suspended indefinitely. Even if Goodell reinstates Vick, the 29-year-old quarterback still would have to find a team willing to sign him.

Suit accuses Roethlisberger of sex assault Scott Sonner

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RENO, NEV.

A woman has filed a lawsuit accusing Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of raping her last summer in his penthouse hotel room at a casino in Lake Tahoe during a celebrity golf tournament. Roethlisberger’s lawyer adamantly denied the allegations Roethlisberger Tuesday and was quick to point out that the woman never went to the authorities. “Ben has never sexually assaulted anyone. The timing of the lawsuit and the absence of a criminal complaint and a criminal investigation are the

most compelling evidence of the absence of any criminal conduct,” David Cornwell said in a statement. “If an investigation is commenced, Ben will cooperate fully, and Ben will be fully exonerated.” Cornwell did not immediately reply to a phone message and email seeking more comment. The suit also alleges hotel officials for Harrah’s Lake Tahoe went to great lengths to cover up the incident. It seeks a minimum of $440,000 in damages from the quarterback, at least $50,000 in damages from the Harrah’s officials and an unspecified amount of punitive damages “sufficient to deter” Roethlisberger and the others “from engaging in such conduct in the future.” The woman’s lawsuit says she didn’t file a criminal complaint

because she feared Harrah’s would side with Roethlisberger and she would be fired. The Steelers and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said they were looking into the allegations against Roethlisberger, one of the biggest names in sports. He has won two Super Bowls in his five-year career and is about to report to training camp as the Steelers look to repeat as champions.

Armstrong performs well 7-time champion has strong showing at Tour on Tuesday Jamey Keaten and Samuel Petrequin 20481406

BOURG-SAINT-MAURICE, FRANCE

Lance Armstrong mustered one of his strongest showings at this Tour de France on Tuesday, a dazzling burst of acceleration from yesteryear that allowed him to keep second place. The seven-time champion was so buoyed by the performance that he suggested to The Associated Press Armstrong he could still contend for the yellow jersey if teammate and race leader Alberto Contador has a “bad day.” Armstrong, speaking after the 16th stage in the Alps, stressed he doesn’t expect that

CYCLING — TOUR DE FRANCE to happen and only a “big shake-up” would allow for such a scenario. Contador, the 2007 Tour winner, had to fight to retain the overall lead in the 99-mile stage from the Swiss town of Martigny to Bourg-Saint-Maurice, France, which was won by Mikel Astarloza, of Spain. As Contador tried to keep pace with two attackers on the final climb, the 37-year-old Texan lagged. But after dropping back at least 35 seconds, he popped out of his saddle and recovered lost ground. “I had no choice. ... So I waited until we had a steeper section, and then I got away with an acceleration,” he said. Contador was impressed, but not surprised. “It’s easy to explain — he’s a

very great rider,” said Contador, who leads his Astana teammate by 1:37. “He was in the past, and he showed it once again.” Contador and Armstrong finished in a small group of race leaders behind Astarloza. The route featured the highest peak this year, the snowcapped Grand-Saint-Bernard pass on the Swiss-Italian border, at 8,113 feet, and its sister the Petit-Saint-Bernard pass, on the Italian-French border. Armstrong says he’s feeling better on his bike than he did during Sunday’s entree into the Alps, when Contador dusted him and the entire pack on the ride up to the Swiss ski station of Verbier. “I made some changes to my position yesterday — I raised the seat height,” he said. “So in general, I was pedaling better today.”

Mike Krzyzewski could have left international basketball on top, having returned the United States to its longtime position as the world’s best. That’s not what coaches like Krzyzewski do. “It was very easy to walk away, but I just don’t think peo-

ple who are accustomed to competing or high achievers walk away,” USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo said. “You just keep competing.” So that’s what Krzyzewski plans, right on through the 2012 Olympics. USA Basketball announced Tuesday that Krzy-

zewski will return to lead the U.S. in next summer’s world championships and to defend its gold medal in London. The U.S. won the championship last year in Beijing and will bring the leadership of that team back for another run. Krzyzewski’s entire staff of assistants also will return — New York’s Mike D’Antoni, Portland’s Nate McMillan and Jim Boeheim, of Syracuse.

Watson convinced he played Open right

OLYMPICS — BASKETBALL

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Tom Watson says he is already over the heartbreak of missing out on a sixth British Open title at Turnberry and is convinced he played the right approach shot at the final hole. The 59-year-old golf great was on the verge of becoming the oldest winner of a major

GOLF — BRITISH OPEN when he led by one stroke going down the last fairway on Sunday. But he wound up losing a playoff to Stewart Cink after he sent an 8-iron approach that rolled right across the green, and then missed an 8-foot putt for the win. “No, there’s no self-recrimination. There can’t be,” Watson

said Tuesday, as he turned his attention to trying to win the Senior British Open for a fourth time. “I tried my best on every shot, and sometimes you make the right judgments and sometimes you don’t. If I hit a 9-iron on the last hole, I may hit it three inches fat and come up 20 yards short, who knows? I hit the shot I wanted to and, when it was in the air, I thought: ‘This may be mine.”’ Despite the outcome, Watson said he couldn’t have hit the shot any better. “You look back in perspective of the rounds and how they went, that 8-iron that I hit at 18 will always live with me,” Watson said. “I hit the shot that I wanted to hit, I really did. And I asked my friend, Andy North, exactly where that ball landed on the green. He said it landed one foot on to the surface, over the knob, one foot on the surface. So it had the whole length of the green to stop. That’s where I was trying to hit it. I was trying to hit it 164 yards, right there. It just didn’t stop.

The comment period is expected to be open for only 30 days. For more information visit routtpowderriders.com The website will be updated once we receive the scoping document.
