For Shealie and Harry Jenkins, early summer days of wrangling loose pigs have been replaced by efforts to perfect the animals in time for the Routt County Fair that begins Aug. 13 in Hayden.

Cataract surgery can correct vision loss Lisa A. Bankard

SPECIAL TO THE PILOT & TODAY

Making a splash

MATT STENSLAND/STAFF

Julian Lujan, a football player at ThunderRidge High School in Highlands Ranch, does a belly flop during an impromptu competition Saturday at Old Town Hot Springs. Lujan was joined by about 90 of his teammates, who were recreating after a football camp at Colorado Mountain College’s Alpine Campus.

During Cataract Awareness Month in August, the American Academy of Ophthalmology wants to remind people they don’t have to live with vision loss from cataracts. A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s normally clear lens, blocking the passage of light needed for vision. Cataracts form slowly and cause no pain. Some stay small and hardly affect vision, but if the cataract does grow and begin to affect your vision, it can be removed with surgery. See Monday Medical, page 15

Local returns for dance event African drum performance troupe in town for classes, shows Jack Weinstein

PILOT & TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

A former local is returning to Steamboat Springs today to help teach an African drum and dance class. JJ Odell, whose “labor of love” with African drum and dance began more than 10 years ago in Steamboat Springs, is teaching and performing today and Tuesday with the Boulder-based troupe Kissidugu, West African Percussion and Dance. Led by teacher Fara Tolno, the troupe is teaching two adult classes tonight and a youth class Tuesday afternoon. The troupe performs twice Tuesday at Strings Music Pavilion. Odell moved to Steamboat in 1994, when she was 19 years old, for the skiing and to eventually attend Colorado Mountain College’s Alpine Campus. She took her first class through the college a couple of years later. She said she immediately was drawn to African drum and dance. “The power that comes from the drumming — it’s so rich

Give it a try Like JJ Odell, Jen Lowe took her first African drum and dance class in Steamboat in the mid-1990s. She said African dance and drum goes back further than that locally but has really developed a core group in the past five years. She thinks part of that popularity is because African drum and dance is something everyone can do. “The great thing about it is, you don’t have to have been a dancer,” she said. “With African dance, you can be whoever. You get into it and have a good time. There are people who can’t keep the beat and people who can’t stay coordinated. If you stick with it, you’ll get better.” And it’s a lot of fun, she added. The Steamboat African Dance & Drum Ensemble’s next performance is at 3 p.m. Aug. 22, on Yampa Street during the All Arts Festival. A $10 community class will be offered from 10 to 11:30 a.m. that day at Perry Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp. In addition to the Kissidugu classes today and Tuesday, there are a number of classes offered through CMC. The fall semester starts Aug. 21. Lowe said a one-credit beginning class

An aptly named but seldom considered herb is salad burnet (Poterium sanguisorba or Sanguisorba minor). It is a pretty plant with dainty decorative leaves whose looks belie the fact it is a hardy perennial. Native to the Mediterranean region but popular enough to have been brought to North America by the early Pilgrims to New England after it was naturalized in Europe, it is a hardy herbaceous perennial that stays green year-round during milder winters than ours. If the leaves don’t survive, then they are among the earliest to appear in spring and the last to die back in autumn. In England it once was grown to halt erosion and as a fodder plant on chalky poor soils for sheep and cattle, as it has more nutritive than some grasses and stayed green year-round. Part of the rose family, salad burnet forms a flat rosette of leaves on the ground from which slender flowering stems grow as tall as a foot in height. These rosettes of graceful, lacy

and in the absence of sage used generously in stuffings for pork and chicken. Grow from seed, but if left to flower, it will self-sow like an annual. These self-sown seedlings then can be transplanted or left where they are. If you grow more than one plant, have them about 12 inches apart. Grow in sun to light shade in almost any type of soil with the key being very good drainage. Keep it weed-free, and water it well during a dry summer. It is a good plant for container growing, but it is better to sow new seeds every spring because the new leaves are so much more tender and refreshing. The old herbalists had a high regard for the cosmetic and medicinal uses of this plant, but probably the best reason to incorporate this herb into your garden is that it was believed to ‘make the heart merry’, and this should be reason alone to try it.

foliage are composed of finely toothed leaflets, giving the plant an almost fern-like look. The flowers are green blooms with red dots packed onto a tiny round globe that constantly look like they are about to further burst — but don’t — into an explosion of color. They contain no nectar and have to be wind-pollinated. If left to flower, the plant at about 8 inches plus and its kind of sputnik-looking flowers, makes a wonderful edging border that few will be able to specify. As its name suggests, this herb now mainly is a salad herb, as the leaves have a sharp, pleasant cucumber flavor and best are used fresh. Use the youngest leaves from the center of the plant, as the outer ones become tough and bitter. Additionally, for a plentiful supply of young leaves, keep the flower-heads cut back. As well as salads, use the leaves for garnishes, chopped for herb butters, mixed into soft cheeses, sprinkled over vegetables, mixed into potato salad, floating in a punch bowl, flavoring vinegars for salad dressings

conference. But she said it’s common for the state education department to work with local school districts to review and identify what students should know and are able to do by the time their public education is complete. “This is a wonderful review we’re embarking on, and I hope to get up to speed with the (Steamboat Springs School District management) team when we return for the new school year,” she said.

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

When the Colorado Department of Education adopted its model content standards in 1993, the expectations for students were vague and broad. Jo O’Brien, assistant commissioner for the state Department of Education’s standards and assessments, said the department is working to fix that. Stakeholders from the Colorado business and higher education communities have met since January to redefine what the state expects from children in kindergarten through 12th grade, she said. The 13 standards require proficiency in civics, dance, economics, foreign language, geography, history, mathematics, music, physical education, reading and writing, science, theatre and visual arts. The stakeholders are meeting today in Steamboat Springs to discuss the revisions, dissemination and implementation of the revised standards. O’Brien said the meeting is open to the public and that there would be time for comments, questions and/or feedback. “This is an ongoing meeting to get clearer and simpler about what all kids should and can know in school, for every student in Colorado,” O’Brien said about today’s meeting, the 10th held this year. The revision will incorporate four changes to the existing standards: adding 21st century skills; ensuring fewer, clearer and higher standards; adding early childhood, postsecondary and work force readiness expectations; and mastering concepts and skills, not just facts. O’Brien said two more stakeholder meetings are scheduled, in Keystone and Grand Junction. After those, she said, the revised standards likely will go before the state board of education in December for adoption. O’Brien said a campaign to alert the public about what is expected from Colorado school children will start in January 2010. She said the new standards would take two years to implement statewide. Students will be tested on the new standards, which will replace the Colorado Student Assessment Program, in spring 2012. “No other state in the nation has tried and succeeded in changing all 13 disciplines in one year,” she said, adding that stakeholders are two-thirds of the way through the revision process. “Colorado is one of the few states that has clarified what postsecondary high school graduates should know and threaded (the standards)

COMMENTARY

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

The god who bleeds Jonah Goldberg

TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

In one of my favorite episodes of “Star Trek,” Captain Kirk is mistaken for a god by inhabitants of a planet of Native Americans (it’s a long story). The illusion works for Kirk until a jealous shaman cuts Kirk’s hand, revealing that the divine being is just a man after all. “Behold! A god who bleeds!” the shaman mocks, exposing Kirk as a fraud to the rest of the tribe. It may sound like a stretch — and, let’s be fair, Goldberg it is — but I keep thinking of that episode when I look at President Barack Obama’s poll numbers these days. He’s bleeding on every front. The latest Pew survey shows that only 38 percent of Americans approve of his handling of the economy. In the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, fewer than half

of respondents (48 percent) say Obama can be trusted to keep his word. Gallup has his approval rating at a new low of 52 percent, and Rasmussen has it below 50 percent for the first time. On almost every domestic issue, polls show that support for Obama and his agenda is plummeting and that the Democratic Party’s advantages over Republicans on the economy, taxes, the deficit and health care have been erased or severely reduced. All presidents go through rough patches, and Obama’s no exception. Odds are, his poll numbers will get better — and worse — in the years to come. All of this is typical. But this misses a crucial point: Obama isn’t supposed to be a typical politician. He was supposed to be The One. He was supposed to change Washington. Transcend race. Fix souls. Bake 12-minute brownies in seven minutes. Oprah promised Obama would help

us “evolve to a higher plane.” Deepak Chopra said Obama’s presidency represented “a quantum leap in American consciousness.” Last month, Newsweek editor Evan Thomas proclaimed that Obama stood “above the country, above — above the world, he’s sort of God.” Well, now he’s the god who bleeds, and once you’re the god who bleeds, it’s hard to get the divinity back in the tube, as it were. Obama undoubtedly has major accomplishments ahead of him, but in a real way the Obama presidency is over. His messianic hopey-changiness has been exposed for what it was and what it could only be: a rich cocktail of pie-eyed idealism, campaign sloganeering and profound arrogance. As president, he’s tried to apply the postpartisan gloss of his campaign rhetoric to the hyperpartisan dross of his agenda. And he’s fooling fewer people See Goldberg, page 9

How to lick a slug Nicholas D. Kristof THE NEW YORK TIMES

MOUNT HOOD, ORE.

While backpacking here with my 11year-old daughter, I kept thinking of something tragic: so few kids these days know what happens when you lick a big yellow banana slug. My daughter and I were recuperating in a (banana slug-infested) wilderness from a surfeit of civilization. On our second day on the Pacific Crest Trail, we were exhausted after nearly 20 miles of hiking, our feet ached, and ravenous mosKristof quitoes were persecuting us. Dusk was falling, but no formal campsite was within miles. So we set out a groundsheet and our sleeping bags on the soft grass of a ridge so that the winds would blow the mosqui-

toes away. Our dog looked aghast (“Ugh, where’s my bed?!”), but sulkily curled up beside us. As far as we could tell, there was no other hiker within a half-day’s journey in any direction. We debated whether to put up our light tarp to protect us from rain. “No need,” I advised my daughter patronizingly. “There’s zero chance it’ll rain. And it’ll be more fun to be able to look up at shooting stars.” It was, until we awoke at 4 a.m. to a freezing drizzle. The rain not only punctured the doctrine of paternal Infallibility but also offered one of nature’s dazzlingly important lessons in perspective, reminding us that we’re just tenants — and ones without much sway. Such time in the wilderness is part of our family’s summer ritual, a time to hit the “reset” switch and escape deadlines and BlackBerrys. We spend the time fretting instead about blisters, river crossings

and rain, and the experiences offer us lessons on inner peace and life’s meaning — cheap and effective therapy, without the couch. All this comes to mind because for most of us in the industrialized world, nature is a rarer and rarer part of our lives. Children for 1,000 generations grew up exploring fields, itching with poison oak and discovering the hard way what a wasp nest looks like. That’s no longer true. Paul, a fourth-grader in San Diego, put it this way: “I like to play indoors better, ’cause that’s where all the electrical outlets are.” Paul was quoted in a thoughtful book by Richard Louv, “Last Child in the Woods,” that argued that baby boomers “may constitute the last generation of Americans to share an intimate, familial attachment to the land and water.” Only 2 percent of American households now live on farms, compared with See Kristof, page 9 Bruce Tinsley

every day. Indeed, the one unifying theme of his presidency so far has been Obama’s relentless campaigning for a job he already has. That makes sense because that’s really all Obama knows how to do. He’s had no significant experience crafting major legislation. He has next to no experience governing at all. But he’s great at giving speeches, holding town halls and chitchatting with reporters. So that’s largely what he does as president. The problem is, campaigning is different than governing. The former requires

convincing promises about what you will do; the latter requires convincing arguments for what you are doing. He’s good at the former, not so good at the latter. Or as columnist Michael Barone puts it, he’s good at aura, bad at argument. It’s revealing that liberals suddenly want Obama to spare the god and use the rod. Specifically, as Dick Polman notes in the Philadelphia Inquirer, they want Obama to channel Lyndon Johnson (whom no one confused for a quantum leap in our consciousness). Liberal historian Doris Kearns Goodwin says she wants BHO to go LBJ: “to

take charge, to draw lines, to pressure, to threaten, to cajole.” Liberal activist Dean Baker says Obama should “get the list of every hardball nasty political ploy” that Johnson ever deployed. As Polman rightly notes, this is crazy talk for the simple reason that Obama has nothing like LBJ’s experience, skill set, or treasure trove of chits and political IOUs. Obama can no more decide to become LBJ than Carrot Top can decide to become Laurence Olivier. Now, just as critics predicted, Obama needs on-the-job training to become a president, because he’s a god no more.

Getting kids awed by nature is important Kristof continued from 8 40 percent in 1900. Suburban childhood that once meant catching snakes in fields now means sanitized video play dates scheduled a week in advance. One study of three generations of 9-year-olds found that by 1990, the radius from the house in which they were allowed to roam freely was only one-ninth as great as it had been in 1970. A British study found that children could more easily identify Japanese cartoon characters like Pikachu, Metapod and Wigglytuff than they could native animals and plants, such as otter, oak and beetle. Louv calls this “nature deficit disorder,” and he links it to increases in depression, obesity and attention deficit disorder. I don’t know about all that, although his book does cite a study indicating that watching fish lowers blood pressure signifi-

cantly. (That’s how to cut health costs: hand out goldfish instead of heart medicine!) One problem may be that the American environmental movement has focused so much on preserving nature that it has neglected to do enough to preserve a constituency for nature. It’s important not only to save forests but also to promote camping, hiking, bouldering and white-water rafting so that people care about saving those forests. One sign of trouble: the number of visits to America’s national parks has been slipping for more than a decade. Likewise, Europe and Canada have done an excellent job of building networks of long-distance hiking trails, while the U.S. has trouble maintaining the trails it has. One of our family’s annual backpacks is the 40-mile Timberline Trail circuit around Mount Hood, crossing snow-

fields and dazzling alpine fields of flowers. In years when we’re particularly addled, we hike it as many as three times. But a washout almost three years ago left part of this gorgeous trail — completed in the 1930s — officially closed and unofficially rather difficult to get by. Here’s a spectacular trail that was built in the last depression, and we can’t even sustain it. So let’s protect nature, yes, but let’s also maintain trails, restore the Forest Service and support programs that get young people rained on in the woods. Let’s acknowledge that getting kids awed by nature is as important as getting them reading. Oh, and the slug? Time was, most kids knew that if you licked the underside of a banana slug, your tongue went numb. Better that than have them numb their senses staying cooped up inside.

Strings tuning up for finales Elissa Greene

FOR THE PILOT & TODAY

Even though it seems like we just got started, the final week of Strings Music Festival’s main subscription season is upon us. There still are some great musical events left — a full week of great “regular” concerts, and four special “postseason” concerts that are definitely worth a look. Greene West Guinea native Fara Tolno returns to the Strings stage on Tuesday for two concerts of energetic and exciting African dancing and drumming. He is joined by Kissidugu, his troupe of six drummers and six dancers, including some Steamboat locals. Strings favorites Mark Nuccio (clarinet), David Deveau (piano), and Anne Martindale Williams (cello) will perform pieces by Bach, Gershwin and Saint-Saens on the last Wednesday evening classical concert of the season.

Alberto Almarza also will be featured, playing pieces for Shakuhachi flute. On Friday, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Chris Hillman takes the stage with lifelong pal Herb Pedersen. Hillman, a four-time Grammy nominee, was a founding member of The Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers. Hillman also collaborated with Stephen Stills in the 1970s to form the country rock band Manassas. Pedersen was a member of the Desert Rose Band, which was the Academy of Country Music’s Touring Band of the Year three times. The duo has been collaborating since 1963, when they met at age 18 as aspiring bluegrass musicians. Saturday is the Classical Finale. Mark Nuccio and David Deveau play the fantasy-like Fairytale Pictures by Schumann. Later in the program, they will be joined by Andrés Cárdenes to perform Slang by contemporary composer Libby Larsen. This piece has elements of classical, jazz, blues and boogie, making it the perfect closer to a phenomenal

— and eclectic — classical music season. But there are still two weeks of great Different Tempo concerts, even after the regular season ends. In a rare acoustic performance Aug. 10, the Dark Star Orchestra replaces the Grateful Dead concert experience. On Aug. 14, the Grammy-nominated bluegrass family Cherryholmes appears in concert. On Aug. 18, local fiddler Jessie Burns returns to the Strings stage with her band Gaelic Storm for some rowdy Irish Rock. And last, but definitely not least, multiple Grammy-winning pianist George Winston plays on Friday, Aug. 21. If you haven’t attended a Strings Music Festival concert yet this summer, it’s not too late, but it will be soon, so come on out.

Tamera Manzanares FOR THE PILOT & TODAY

Al Dietsch has worn several distinguished hats throughout his life, including lawyer, businessman and officer in the U.S. Navy. It wasn’t until retirement that he encountered one of the more scary experiences of his life: Telling a story to schoolchildren. His fears were confirmed when a little girl cried after that first tale. As it turns out, she was just disappointed she wouldn’t be able to attend his next storytelling adventure. The magical connection established between children and older adults through oral storytelling inspired Al Dietsch and his wife, Germaine, to form Spellbinders, a national organization of trained volunteers who share stories with schoolchildren. “Everybody is a storyteller — everybody loves to tell stories, but they think they can’t,” Germaine said during a presentation in Steamboat Springs last year. There currently are 23 chapters of volunteers throughout Colorado and in nine other states. The Steamboat Springs chapter began last year with six active storytellers in Strawberry Park and Soda Creek elementary schools, coordinator Sarah Kostin said. The chapter is hosting a threeday training workshop for new volunteers next week.

The rewards

Spellbinders provides volunteers with initial training as well as ongoing workshops and resources to help them prepare

���������������������

and become confident in their storytelling abilities. Volunteers are encouraged to give programs in elementary school classrooms at least once a month to establish a mentoring relationship with their listeners. Some volunteers tell stories to as many as 25 classes regularly. Germaine planted the seed for Spellbinders in the late 1980s when, as a volunteer for Denver Public Schools, she wanted to involve the community, particularly older adults, in the classroom. Germaine found that storytellers, by giving new life to oral tales they had enjoyed as children, not only stimulated children’s imaginations and creativity but enhanced their language development, vocabulary and reading skills. Perhaps most importantly, the experience created a special bond between youths and older adults: Children benefited from storytellers’ wisdom and knowledge, and volunteers enjoyed being creative and fulfilling a traditional elder role. Germaine’s storytelling program expanded to other counties and, in 1997, after receiving numerous awards and requests for the program in other states, the Dietsches established Spellbinders’ nonprofit status. Last year, nearly 260,000 children heard stories from Spellbinders volunteers. “The reward of seeing the children and having them so

enthralled with your stories is just so much satisfaction,” explained Norma Roscoe, a storyteller and chapter leader for Mesa County Spellbinders. Since retiring, Roscoe has spent most of her time volunteering as a storyteller and overseeing about 48 people in her chapter. She tells stories to students in preschool through fifth grade. Although volunteers usually spend about 20 to 30 minutes telling each story, at least that much time goes into preparing the tale. Volunteers often find themselves in the children’s section of the library reading through different tales and putting their own spin on their favorites. “When you get to the class and tell a story and see the response of the children, it’s worth all the effort it takes,” Roscoe said.

Training and volunteering The initial training workshop includes lessons in traditional folk and fairy tales. As volunteers gain confidence, they can

Aspen resident Bobsy Sacks is among nearly 1,000 volunteers in Colorado and other states who tell stories to schoolchildren and other listeners through the Spellbinders program. A training workshop is being held next week for residents interested in volunteering as storytellers in Steamboat Springs during the upcoming school year.

explore other types of stories and tell tales based on their personal experiences. “You can’t tell a story unless it comes from your heart,” Al said. The diversity of Spellbinders volunteers ensures there is no end to the color and wisdom in their tales. Volunteers include retirees from all walks of life as well as from different countries. Some storytellers have disabilities — one is blind — or carry oxygen tanks and walk with canes. Although the program focuses on older adult volunteers, some chapters include teenagers and mothers. Chapter coordinators help place volunteers in school classrooms. Storytellers usually start telling stories to younger elementary school students. As they become more experienced, they can expand to older classrooms or other audiences and venues such as long-term care facilities and hospitals.

To gain confidence, new volunteers shadow experienced storytellers after their initial training. They can polish their storytelling during regular meetings and workshops that feature videos and the opportunity to learn from others. Sharing experiences and meeting other volunteers is another positive aspect of the program, Roscoe said. “I’ve enjoyed the association with other Spellbinders. … You find so many friends — it’s rewarding and interesting to know these people,” she said.

but there is some of that, too. “I kind of got hooked, and I’m still doing it,” she said. Odell left Steamboat in 1999 and spent some time studying African drum and dance in Ghana, West Africa, in a program through Colorado State University. She later landed in Denver and got involved with Kissidugu, which means “a safe place” in the language from Guinea, West Africa. Tolno, a native of Conakry in Guinea, leads the troupe. Playing djembe drums since he was 9, Tolno has traveled the world performing and teaching. Odell said he “eats, sleeps and breathes music and dance.” And it’s not the first time Tolno has taught and performed in Steamboat, said Jen Lowe, a member of the Steamboat African Dance & Drum Ensemble, who teaches classes at the college.

Lowe said the Steamboat ensemble often tries to bring guest teachers from Africa to the Yampa Valley, and Tolno is one of the locals’ favorites. “He’s a drummer, a dancer and a teacher. He can do it all,” Lowe said. “His energy is just very exciting. He’s taken this group (Kissidugu), they’re just people from Boulder, and when I see them perform — and I’ve seen African dance troupes — they’ve got it.” Odell said Kissidugu will hold a camp, Merveilles, Wednesday through Sunday in Boulder. For more information, visit www.kissidugu.org. All Kissidugu classes and performances today and tomorrow are at Strings Music Pavilion. The adult djembe drum class is at 5:30 p.m. today and the dance class is at 6:30 p.m. today. The youth class is at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. The cost for each class is $15.

Firefighters working on a wildfire near Rangely reached 90 percent containment by Saturday night, the Northwest Colorado Fire Management Unit reported. The Spring Creek fire, located 18 miles southeast of Rangely, in Rio Blanco County on the east fork of Spring Creek, began at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in a canyon bottom. The fire did not start by natural causes, firefighters said, and an investigation to determine the exact cause is in progress. The fire, which encompassed 1,340 acres of private land and Bureau of Land Management property, damaged 15 power poles.

About 1,000 jobs in state credited to stimulus so far DENVER

Fewer than 1,000 Colorado jobs have been created through the stimulus funding that the federal government estimates ultimately will create or save 59,000 state jobs by the end of 2010, state officials say. The Denver Post reports that most of the jobs created in Colorado through the stimulus so far are 2,946 temporary summer jobs for youths, the equivalent of less than 500 full-time jobs.

“Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness worldwide; however, in most cases, vision loss from cataracts is reversible,” said Mark Helm, M.D., Steamboat Springs ophthalmologist. “New techniques developed over the past decade have made cataract surgery one of the safest and most successful procedures available in terms of restoring quality of life to patients,” he said. Each year, more than 1.6 million of these eye surgeries are performed in the United States. Currently, there are no medications or exercises that will help cataracts disappear. Short-term treatment includes: eye glasses, contact lenses, strong bifocals, or magnifying lenses. Usually both eyes are affected, but not always. Changes can occur in months or very slowly during many years. Although most cataracts develop as part of the aging process, they also can result from eye injuries, certain diseases such as diabetes, genetic inheritance, certain medications, steroid-use, cigarette smoking and obesity, as well as from frequent, unprotected exposure to ultraviolet rays. “Some people notice a gradual, painless blurring of vision, double vision in one eye or fading or yellowing of colors,” Helm said. “When older patients mention sensitivity to glare and/or bright light or trouble driving at night, this may be caused by cataracts. Or, if a patient needs frequent changes to his or her glasses or contact lens prescriptions, I’ll evaluate him or her for a cataract.” Contrary to popular belief, cataracts are not removed using lasers. Lasers are used only in follow-up procedures, if needed to remove a film that occasionally can grow behind the lens implant. Cataract surgery most often is done as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. “The cloudy natural lens can be replaced with an artificial lens to give the eye proper focusing power. In most cases, the improvement in the patient’s vision is profound,” Helm said. If cataracts don’t interfere with your life, you may choose not to do anything about them. Not all cataracts affect vision significantly or require treatment. When they do begin to interfere with your daily activities, then it may be time to have the cataract removed. “Cataract surgery, although quite safe, is still surgery,” Helm said. “The only person who can really decide when it’s time to have a cataract removed is you, under the care of your doctor.” About 20.5 million Americans age 40 and older have cataracts. More than half of us will devel-

op cataracts by age 80. While cataracts are a common cause of poor vision, they can be detected through a comprehensive eye exam and treated successfully.

A top White House adviser said he can’t rule out a tax on middle-class Americans to pay for President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.

We’ve got your next job down to a science

As a candidate, Obama pledged not to raise taxes for most Americans. But economic adviser Larry Summers said he cannot promise that Obama will stick to that campaign pledge. Summers said it’s too early to tell what will be needed to pay

for a broad restructuring of how people receive health care. Summers said controlling health care costs will be crucial to reducing the deficit. He said the health of the economy is directly tied to how Americans take care of their own health.

put up in his honor. The tennis complex at his alma mater, Florida State University, was named for him. A high school classmate who helped form the group “Friends Working to Free Scott Speicher” said Sunday his biggest fear was that Speicher had been taken alive and tortured. “This whole thing has been so surreal for all of the people who have known Scott,” said former classmate Nels Jensen, 52, who now lives in Arkansas. Jensen said the group was frustrated the military didn’t initially send a search and rescue team after the crash, and then grew more perplexed as reports of his possible capture emerged. “Never again will our military likely not send out a search and rescue party for a downed serviceman,” Jensen said.

Navy pilot Michael “Scott” Speicher was shot down over the Iraq desert on the first night of the Gulf War in 1991, and it was there he apparently was buried by Bedouins, the sand hiding him from the world’s mightiest military. For nearly two decades, the family Speicher left behind, from outside Jacksonville, Fla., pushed the Defense Department to find out what had happened to him. On Sunday, the Pentagon disclosed that Marines had recovered Speicher’s bones and skeletal fragments — enough for a positive identification. Shot down over west-central Iraq on a combat mission in

his FA-18 Hornet on Jan. 17, 1991, Speicher was declared killed by the Pentagon hours later. Defense Secretary Dick Cheney went on television and announced the U.S. had suffered its first casualty of the war. But 10 years later, the Navy changed his status to missing in action, citing an absence of evidence that Speicher had died. In October 2002, the Navy switched his status to “missing/captured,” although it never has said what evidence it had that he ever was in captivity. More reviews followed, without definitive answers. His story never waned in Jacksonville. A large banner flying outside a firefighters’ credit union has a photo of him with the words “Free Scott Speicher.” At his church, a memorial was

Football becoming a focus in Steamboat

Denver wins, 6-4, in 3rd game against Cincinnati THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

S

uccess means different things to different people. At the high school football level, on-the-field performance is a big part. That means wins, losses and championships. But at big football high schools in California, Texas and Florida, one of the standards has become sending players to the next level — Division I colleges. It’s certainly something to brag about. What coach or program doesn’t want to send players to the best schools? The bottom line is, the best high school players usually make the best college teams. But sending players to the next level is twofold in a high school program. The ones who do it usually are highly successful, and the coaches who do it usually are able to sell football to players as something more than just a game. Although Colorado isn’t a hotbed for college recruiters and usually sends only a few players to Division I programs across the nation, it’s hard not to like what is going on right here in Steamboat Springs. Of course you have schools such as Mullen and Columbine, where Division I programs look when the recruiting process starts. But there is something special brewing at a small Class 3A school in Northwest Colorado, more known for churning out winter athletes than gridiron greats. Since 2005, Steamboat Springs High School has seen Joel Adams, Trace Adams and Alex Wood get opportunities to play at the University of Colorado; Ben DeLine kick a game-winner for Colorado State University; Jay Hanley fight for playing time at Kansas State University and Lane Shipley get a starting spot at Dartmouth College.

Tiger Woods holds up the championship trophy on the 18th green after winning the Buick Open at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc, Mich., on Sunday.

A 3-stroke victory Tiger Woods earns Buick Open trophy Sunday Larry Lage

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GRAND BLANC TOWNSHIP, MICH.

Tiger Woods won the Buick Open for a third time and claimed his 69th PGA Tour victory. Ho hum. ... Not quite. Woods shot a 3-under 69 and coasted to a three-shot victory with a 20-under 268 total at Warwick Hills, which hosted its first Buick Open in 1958 and seemed to stage its final one Sunday. “I’ve played all around the world, and I’ve never seen a day like this,” said Woods, also

the 2002 and 2006 winner at Warwick Hills. “This event has always been special, but today was something else.” He acknowledged thinking about his walk up 18 at Warwick Hills being his last, leading to him throwing his ball with a lot of velocity back down the fairway to fans. He also tossed a ball into the gallery at 17. “I never do that, but today was different,” Woods said. “We aren’t coming back here, and I wanted to thank all these people.” GolfWeek Magazine report-

ed on its Web site that General Motors Co. would end the PGA Tour’s longest partnership, and The Associated Press confirmed it with a person briefed on the decision. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the announcement wouldn’t be made until after the tournament. GolfWeek also reported The Greenbrier in West Virginia is waiting for the PGA Tour to confirm it will replace the Buick Open in 2010. See Buick Open, page 21

Colorado turned to an unlikely source to finally get a win in extra innings. Slumping rookie Dexter Fowler’s two-out RBI triple in the 11th inning off of Nick Masset helped Colorado beat the Cincinnati Reds, 6-4, on Sunday and complete a three-game sweep. “I was just looking for a pitch over the plate,” said Fowler, who entered the game on defense in the seventh inning and struck out in the ninth. “He throws hard, and I’d never faced him before.” Garrett Atkins added a pinch-hit infield single to help Colorado earn its first win in five extra-inning games this season, all on the road. The Rockies extended their winning streak to four games, their longest since winning four straight from July 6 through July 9, and sent the Reds to their sixth consecutive loss and 12th in their past 13 games. “That was a great game to grind that out in the manner in which we did,” Colorado manager Jim Tracy said. “We won that game because of several little things that we pride ourselves in.” Chris Iannetta led off the 11th against Masset (4-1) with a single through the hole into left field and reached second on a wild pitch. Two outs later, Fowler lined his triple to deep left-center field. Fowler, who has started 79 games but had gone 3-for14 in the first seven games of Colorado’s road trip, got the day off on Saturday. “I take days off in stride,” Fowler said. “I try to stay in the game mentally.”

Marshall tweaks hamstring

| 21

��������

Broncos wide receiver injured during training camp Sunday ENGLEWOOD

Disgruntled Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall missed the last hour of practice Sunday after pulling up with an apparent hamstring injury while running a deep sideline route. He sat out the late afternoon session as well. Marshall hobbled to the sideline mid-morning, tossed his helmet and dropped to the grass. He didn’t return to action, staying on the sideline a few minutes

before limping to the trainer’s room. Coach Josh McDaniels said after the morning practice that he wasn’t sure how badly Marshall Marshall was hurt. Marshall has had another drama-filled offseason, this time complaining about his contract and requesting a trade four

months after appearing in his first Pro Bowl. He has made several spectacular plays at camp so far, showing no ill effects from offseason hip surgery. Marshall is coming off his second straight 100-catch season. “If I had a team, I would definitely want him on it,” Broncos cornerback André Goodman said. “He’s a big guy that runs great routes. He’s a competitor — any team wants a receiver like that. We want him healthy.”

Phelps closes worlds with 5th gold medal Paul Newberry

SWIMMING — WORLDS

ROME

Michael Phelps had every reason to be satisfied after the Beijing Olympics. Yet he kept insisting there was more to do in the pool. Clearly. Even coming off his longest layoff and the embarrassment of being photographed inhaling from a marijuana pipe, Phelps turned in another remarkable performance during eight days at the Foro Italico. He completed it Sunday night by helping the U.S. 400-meter medley

Phelps

relay team set the 43rd world record of the fastest meet in history. OK, he didn’t win another eight golds. This time, he made do with five golds and a

silver. Still, Phelps showed plenty of fire, even when there’s really nothing left to prove. “I never want to look back on career and ask, ‘What if ?”’ he said.

Swimming the butterfly leg, Phelps helped the U.S. pull away from Germany and Australia to win in 3 minutes, 27.28 seconds. That easily broke the mark of 3:29.34 set by the Americans at last summer’s Olympics, another relay team that included Phelps. “That relay brings out the best in me,” Phelps said. “It doesn’t matter how much energy I have; it’s all going to go into every race. That’s one of the things that I enjoy most — stepping out onto the blocks, no matter what kind of shape I’m in.”

Woods: I’ve never played for fans like this thanked by fans who appreciated his appearance. “I’ve never played in front of fans like this,” Woods said. And they haven’t seen a player quite like Woods. He improved to 36-1 when he has the outright lead after 54 holes. Woods has four wins this season — twice as many as anyone else on the PGA Tour — in just 11 starts since returning from knee surgery.

On-field accomplishments earning respect Graham continued from 20 You’d be hard pressed to find a program at the 3A, or even 4A, level that has put that many players at Division I schools in the past four years. And you can add Steamboat Springs seniors Austin Hinder, who has committed to play quarterback at the University of CaliforniaBerkeley; and Joe Dover, who has the potential to play Division I, to the list. A lot of things create that kind of success. There’s a steady foundation in the coaching ranks. Coach Aaron Finch

has built a program that is well-run and filled it with assistants who have good football pedigree. It also helps that Finch — who played college ball at Colorado State — has numerous connections to the collegiate ranks. When the who’swho of college coaches came to see Hinder in the beginning of the summer, Finch generally knew them or shared a common friend with them. But mostly, it’s the culture surrounding the program. Winning helps and having the athletes helps, but the culture makes players want to go on

to the next level. As younger players see athletes go on, they want to do the same thing. Assuming the stability and culture remain, football players from Steamboat will continue to play Division I in coming years. Although Steamboat will — and should — always be known for its accomplishments on snow, our Colorado ski town is starting to garner some respect for its on-field accomplishments on Friday nights. — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail lgraham@steamboatpilot.com

Susan Docherty, general manager for GM’s Buick and GMC brands, said she is giving Buick-GMC’s national promotions manager Larry Peck 90 days to figure out the company’s future with the sport. “There’s been a long history between Buick and golf, and there definitely will be a connection going forward,” Docherty

said. “What we need to do is stop and evaluate what we want to do going forward.” Spending about $7 million on a golf tournament in Michigan might not be part of the plans. “Hopefully, we’ll get back to this region soon,” Woods said. Early and often at Warwick Hills, from the pro-am when he played with rocker Bob Seger through Sunday, Woods was

Conservative seeks trials Iran president challenged on post-election bloodshed Nasser Karimi

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TEHRAN, IRAN

Criticism of Iran’s mass prosecution of political activists widened Sunday with the main conservative challenger to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad demanding authorities also seek punishment for those accused of killing protesters. The sharp rebuke by Mohsen Rezaei — on the eve of Ahmadinejad’s scheduled inauguration for a second term — also showed the broad scope of opposition to the crackdowns after the disputed June 12 elections. Conservatives such as Rezaei increasingly have joined ranks with liberal factions to denounce the harsh tactics by Iran’s leadership including

sweeping arrests, media blackouts and attacks blamed for at least 30 deaths. But Rezaei brings added Ahmadinejad weight as a former commander of the powerful Revolutionary Guard — which has led the backlash against groups claiming widespread fraud paved the way for Ahmadinejad’s re-election. In a letter to the head of Iran’s judiciary, which is directly controlled by the ruling clerics, Rezaei said trials must be held for anyone linked to deadly attacks on the streets or torture of detainees. Among the dead is the son of one of Rezaei’s top aides. “Otherwise, justice will not be realized, and it is possible

that unrest will not end,” Rezaei said, according to a report posted on his Web site. The turmoil has complicated President Barack Obama’s efforts to step up diplomatic engagement with Iran. The relationship became even trickier Saturday as Iranian state TV confirmed it has detained three Americans who crossed the border from northern Iraq a day earlier. Kurdish officials said the two men and woman were tourists who mistakenly had crossed into Iranian territory Friday while hiking in a mountainous area near the resort town of Ahmed Awaa. One of the Americans was identified as Joshua Fattal, according to Kurdish officials and a statement from his family in Elkins Park, Pa.

1 dead in Canada stage collapse THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CAMROSE, ALBERTA

Organizers on Sunday canceled the closing day of a country music festival in central Alberta a day after a fierce thunderstorm caused an outdoor stage to collapse, killing one person and injuring about 75 others. Thousands of fans were camped out at the Big Valley Jamboree in Camrose, 60 miles (100 kilometers) southeast of Edmonton, when strong winds and heavy rain struck about 6 p.m. Saturday, sending people screaming and running for cover. Actor Kevin Costner, who was about to perform with his band, narrowly escaped serious injury. The event is billed as Canada’s largest country music festival, with attendance estimated at 15,000.

Police and festival organizers told a news conference at the site Sunday that one person was killed by falling debris from the stage and about 75 others were injured, most of whom were treated at the site. Camrose Police Chief Darrell Kambeitz said about 21 of the injured were taken to hospitals, two of whom were in critical condition. At the news conference, officials made it clear they had very little advance warning of the severe storm. Kambeitz said the Royal Canadian Mounted Police informed local police at 5:55 p.m. about unconfirmed reports that a possible tornado had touched just south of Edmonton. “We had people on the stage at 5:57 p.m., and the storm struck between 5:57 p.m. and 6 p.m,” he said.

Jamboree producer Larry Werner said his office also got a call saying a severe windstorm was heading directly for the venue and immediately let the performers know they had to get off the stage so an announcement could be made for the crowd to clear the concert bowl. But the warning came too late. Fearing a tornado, panicked fans scrambled to find loved ones and shelter after the storm struck. “We were all racing for the exit,” said Lori Trelenberg, of Sherwood Park, Alberta. “It was devastation. It was strong and powerful. The stage just sort of crumbled.” The Nashville-based Billy Currington band was playing when the power went out and the stage collapsed. One band member was pulled from the wreckage with a broken arm.

Memo: UK military worried soldiers too fat Raphael G. Satter THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LONDON

British soldiers are getting so fat it’s putting lives at risk, according to a leaked memo from the army’s physical training corps published in a Sunday newspaper. The Observer said an emergency memo sent to all units of the British army earlier this month warned that an increasing number of soldiers had become so fat they couldn’t be deployed to conflict zones and urged commanders to focus on physical fitness. The army “has not consistently maintained our standards

of physical fitness” and needs to “reinvigorate a warrior ethos and a culture of being fit,” the newspaper quoted the July 10 memo as saying. The Ministry of Defense offered no direct comment on The Observer’s report, but it did not dispute its accuracy. The ministry said only that commanders recently had been told to ensure that all units were following the army’s physical fitness policy. The newspaper said the memo warned that an increasing number of British soldiers were being classified as “personnel unfit to deploy,” putting operations and lives at risk in places such as Afghanistan, where British forc-

es are grappling with Taliban rebels in brutal conditions. The report comes three years after Britain’s military loosened its fitness requirements to reach more recruits. The maximum body mass index allowable for an enlistee was increased from 28 to 32. The World Health Organization defines “overweight” as a body mass index equal to or more than 25, and “obese” as an index equal to or more than 30. Obesity is a growing problem in Britain, as in many other countries. In 2007, a government-commissioned report predicted that as many as nine out of 10 U.K. adults could be overweight by 2050.
