Construction jumped off this week on the smallest but trickiest portion of Steamboat’s new pedestrian promenade at the base of the ski area. Heavy equipment operators from Duckels Construction were hard at it Wednesday afternoon, excavating an old diversion structure where Burgess Creek disappears into a culvert for its run beneath the lowest trails at the Steamboat Ski Area. When complete, the project will transform the old hole in the ground into a pleasant seating area and fire pit flanked by a water feature. The spot has become known as Burgess Creek Plaza. The first step in promenade construction is scheduled to be completed by mid-November, redevelopment coordinator Joe Kracum said. “We’ll work really hard this fall, maybe even a few days on the weekend, and try to be out of there by Nov. 13 or maybe even a little earlier,” Kracum said. Even if the late fall weather cooperates and they hit their target, people won’t be able to enjoy the sight of Burgess Creek running in an open streambed for more than two years. “The creek will remain in the culvert until 2012,” when the promenade is complete, Kracum said. “We’ll test (the natural streambed) in late fall 2011.” Kracum said he and the

design team intend to have construction documents ready for prospective contractors by mid-December, allowing them to put the two-year project out to bid in January and see construction resume the day after the ski area closes in April 2010. Kracum and the design team are in Steamboat this week to meet with representatives of the resort properties in the neighborhood of the trail and with city officials. They are scheduled to meet from 1 to 3 p.m. today with the Urban Renewal Area Advisory Committee, or URAAC. That committee advises Steamboat Springs City Council, which in turn acts as the Steamboat Springs Redevelopment Authority. Early in today’s agenda, URAAC members will address proposals of a personal nature. Two independent proposals have been presented to create a public memorial near the promenade: one to musician Greg Scott, who died unexpectedly in North Routt County last month; and the other to restaurateur Chris Corna, who died in Port Chester, N.Y., in May.

As owner of the Slopeside Grill, Corna was instrumental in ensuring the cooperation of Torian Plum property owners’ associations in solving challenges with creation of the promenade. Much of the work this week has gone into hammering out the details of cost-sharing arrangements for operating and maintaining a snowmelt system under the promenade, Kracum said. Twin boilers needed to power the snowmelt system may or may not be in place by the winter of 2012 or 2013, depending upon budget constraints. However, the construction projects this year and next will definitely include snowmelt infrastructure — piping and valves, for example — that must be installed beneath the pedestrian walkways, he said. The stream diversion project being undertaken this summer will cost in the neighborhood of $1.4 million, Kracum said. Nicole Horst, a landscape architect with Wenk Associates, said she has designed the rock features in the new Burgess Creek Plaza to evoke the interplay of granite and sedimentary formations in the mountains surrounding Steamboat. “The granite boulders and outcroppngs of sedimentary rock in different layers will create faults and fissures with the fire (symbolizing) a fault that is breaking the earth,” Horst said. — To reach Tom Ross, call 871-4205 or e-mail

Colorado Senate President Brandon Shaffer, D-Longmont, and Senate Majority Leader John Morse, D-Colorado Springs, stopped in Steamboat Springs on Wednesday as part of a statewide “listening tour” designed to help the legislative leaders prepare for the Colorado General Assembly’s 2010 session. The two said forest health and wildfire concerns are top issues on the minds of

Stimulus fund up in the air Cash levels for Routt County Fair livestock sale uncertain

Organizers of the 4-H livestock stimulus fund won’t know how their venture turns out until after Saturday’s sale. But another Routt County Fair project that had been up in the air, the Demolition Derby, appears to be coming together. Dean Vogelaar, president of the Steamboat Springs branch of Mountain Valley Bank, helped create the livestock stimulus fund. He and a team of businesspeople gathered donations from businesses or people who previously bought livestock at the Junior Livestock Sale. The group plans to divide the money among youths selling animals so everyone receives at least that base amount. The fund contained less than

Hayden CSAP scores down from last year Many still higher than Colorado averages Jack Weinstein



When the Hayden School District’s 2009 CSAP scores were released Friday, the results weren’t exactly what some in the district expected, said Superintendent Greg Rockhold. A number of Hayden’s scores in the Colorado Student Assessment Program, which tests students annually in reading, writing and math, and in science during fifth, eighth and 10th grades, were down from a year ago. Some of the scores fell off considerably. Last year, 96 percent of thirdgraders scored at proficient or advanced levels in reading and math, but as fourth-graders, only 68 and 79 percent, respectively, reached those levels. Also last year, 87 percent of fifth-graders were proficient or advanced in writing, but this year, only 55

percent reached that plateau as sixth-graders. The same was true for last year’s fourth-graders, 87 percent of whom were proficient or advanced in Math but fell to 63 percent as fifth-graders. The only areas in which Hayden’s scores increased were ninth- and 10th-grade reading, seventh-grade writing and 10thgrade writing. Rockhold said he’s “not overly concerned” with the scores because Hayden has good teachers and students. Hayden Valley Elementary School Principal Rhonda Sweetser said some of her teachers were especially disappointed in the scores. The elementary scores stayed the same or declined at each grade level — that had a previous test score for comparison — in reading, writing and math. “It’s never fun to go down,” Sweetser said about the scores. “We had great scores last year.

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

Dogs don’t care about dogma Jonah Goldberg


My wife and I took our dog to the neurologist the other day. Yes, the neurologist. For a dog. I’m sure it sounds extravagant, but Cosmo had been having unexplained seizures, so we took him in for an MRI and a spinal tap after a batch of the normal, cheaper tests. He’s a handsome dog, but he’s built like an old East German car. When he was barely a year old, Goldberg he came up lame in his front right leg. The vets had to cut the bone in two, insert a long metal pin and then snap it all back in place. At the time, the surgeon suggested that we might avoid the expense by simply “returning” him to the animal shelter, which in canine terms would be like returning a dissident to North Korea.

Since then, Coz has had surgeries on both of his back legs and a bunch of other, lesser procedures stemming from the rough-and-tumble of doggy life. We’ve stopped counting, but I’m sure we’ve spent more than the trade-in value of several Cash for Clunkers Buicks. But despite all the hassle and expense, we never regret the expenditures. Now, given the debate in Washington, it’s at this point where I might be expected to pivot to some incisive — or perhaps insipid — argument about human-versus-animal medical care. After all, I understand why insurers wouldn’t cover Cosmo, given his many pre-existing conditions. And while I firmly believe reformers could learn a lot from the world of animal medicine, where timely and effective services are provided without benefit of giant bureaucracies, that’s another column. More interesting to me is the reaction from liberals. As one friend put it: How

does a staunch conservative end up taking his dog to the neurologist? Liberal bleeding hearts are supposed to do this sort of thing, not the hardhearted Scrooges of the right. We like war and shooting fur-bearing creatures and cutting budgets for agencies that remove thorns from kittens’ paws. I understand the stereotype, and it surely exists for a reason. But the truth is that ideology has little to do with it. The wonderful thing about dogs — and yes, cats too, I suppose — is that they are beyond the reach of ideology. Not only does affection for dogs have no significant correlation to politics, but politics holds no interest whatsoever to dogs. Talk about health care reform to Cosmo and he’ll tilt his head, yawn and walk away just as quickly as he would if you opted to discuss the assassination of Trotsky or the defenestration See Goldberg, page 9

A scary reality Bob Herbert


Last week was a pretty good one for President Barack Obama. Bill Clinton helped out big time when he returned from North Korea with the American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee. Sonia Sotomayor was elevated to the Supreme Court. And Friday’s unemployment report registered a tiny downward tick in the jobless rate. But for American workers peering anxiously Herbert through their family portholes, the economic ship is still sinking. You can put whatever kind of gloss you want on last week’s jobs numbers, but the truth is that while they may have been a bit better than most economists were expecting, they were still bad, bad, bad.


Some 247,000 jobs were lost in July, a number that under ordinary circumstances would send a shudder through the country. It was the smallest monthly loss of jobs since last summer. And for that reason, it was seen as a hopeful sign. The official monthly unemployment rate ticked down from 9.5 percent to 9.4 percent. But behind the official numbers is a scary story that illustrates the single biggest challenge facing America today. The U.S. economy does not seem able to provide enough jobs — and nowhere near enough good jobs — to maintain the standard of living that most Americans have come to expect. The country has lost a crippling 6.7 million jobs since the Great Recession began in December 2007. No one is predicting a recovery in the foreseeable future powerful enough to replace the millions of jobs that have vanished in this historic downturn.

Analysts at the Economic Policy Institute noted that the economy has fewer jobs now than it had in 2000, “even though the labor force has grown by around 12 million workers since then.” Two issues that absolutely undermine any rosy assessment of last week’s employment report are the swelling ranks of the long-term unemployed and the crushing levels of joblessness among young Americans. More than 5 million workers — about a third of the unemployed — have been jobless for more than six months. That’s the highest number recorded since accurate records have been kept. For those concerned with the economic viability of the American family going forward, the plight of young workers, especially young men, is particularly frightening. The percentage of young American men who are actually working See Herbert, page 9 Bruce Tinsley allows readers to submit comments on stories, to create their own blogs and to participate in our Reader Forum.

Goldberg continued from 8 of Prague. But if you say the words “tennis ball” or “squirrel,” he will be utterly fascinated. And that’s what I love about dogs. They just don’t care about such things, and they encourage you not to care either — at least while you’re with them. You can’t say the same thing about children, because they grow up and inherit the society we leave behind. Being a good parent requires caring about politics. Dogs, meanwhile, keep their innocent doggy goodness from kennel to grave, obviating the need to explain to them why tax

cuts are awesome. Dogs give us any number of amusements and comforts, but their greatest gift is to remind us that love and loyalty exist outside the ephemeral pieties of contemporary life. This is true for free marketers and Fabian socialists alike. Cosmo the Wonderdog is no stranger to mystery. Allegedly half-Australian cattle dog, half Labrador, the truth is that we don’t know what he is. I simply say he’s a rich ethnic cocktail in the American tradition. We suspect he was abused as a puppy, because when we first got him, Cosmo saw me roll up a magazine to kill a bug

and immediately ran out of the room in fear. To this day, if he sees a rolled up newspaper or magazine, he has the same response. And to this day, I routinely daydream about finding the jerk who hit my dog. The spinal tap required shaving a patch of fur from the back of Coz’s head; now he looks a bit like a furry Trappist monk. The results were good in that he doesn’t have a brain tumor and has no obvious infections, but we still don’t know what’s wrong with him. So how did a hard-core right-winger like me end up taking my dog to the neurologist? Because my dog needed one.

Unemployment should be No. 1 priority Herbert continued from 8 is the lowest it has been in the 61 years of record-keeping, according to the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University in Boston. Only 65 of every 100 men ages 20 to 24 working on any given day in the first six months of this year. In the age group 25 to 34, traditionally a prime age range for getting married and starting a family, just 81 of 100 men were employed. For male teenagers, the numbers were disastrous: Only 28 of every 100 males were employed in the 16- to 19-year-old age group. For minority teenagers, forget about it. The numbers are beyond scary; they’re catastrophic. This should be the biggest story in the United States. When joblessness reaches these kinds of extremes, it doesn’t just damage individual families; it corrodes entire communities, fosters a sense of hopelessness and leads

to disorder. The unemployment that has wrought such devastation in black communities for decades now is being experienced by a much wider segment of the population. We’ve been in deep denial about this. Way back in March 2007, when the official unemployment rate was a wildly deceptive 4.5 percent and the Bush crowd was crowing about the alleged strength of the economy, I wrote: “People can howl all they want about how well the economy is doing. The simple truth is that millions of ordinary American workers are in an employment bind. Steady jobs with good benefits are going the way of Ozzie and Harriet. Young workers, especially, are hurting, which diminishes the prospects for the American family. And blacks, particularly black males, are in a deep danger zone.” The official jobless rate is now more than twice as high — 9.4

percent — and even more wildly deceptive. It ticked down by 0.1 percent in July not because more people found jobs, but because 450,000 people withdrew from the labor market. They stopped looking, so they weren’t counted as unemployed. A truer picture of the employment crisis emerges when you combine the number of people who are officially counted as jobless with those who are working part time because they can’t find full-time work and those in the so-called labor market reserve — people who are not actively looking for work (because they have become discouraged, for example) but would take a job if one became available. The tally from those three categories is a mind-boggling 30 million Americans — 19 percent of the overall work force. This is, by far, the nation’s biggest problem and should be its No. 1 priority.

have a broader view than just our district,” Morse said. “The two of us are going to fight battles differently after this tour.” Shaffer said health care, economic development and education will be the Democratic majority’s top three priorities in the state Legislature this year. He said the statewide tour will help shape the legislation built under each of those categories. Shaffer and Morse also acknowledged that the state’s budgetary woes also will command a large amount of their attention. Morse said the state’s latest financial projections show that $900 million needs to be cut from the general fund budget.

Morse said that’s the equivalent to closing one out of five public schools in the state or eliminating the state prison system. “That’s the order of magnitude of what we’re talking about,” Morse said. The first round of cuts, totaling $400 million, will be made by Gov. Bill Ritter and will take effect in September. Shaffer said Ritter will present his suggested cuts to the Legislature’s Joint Budget Committee next week. The state Legislature will address the next $500 million in state cuts during the 2010 legislative session. The pain will be spread statewide and could include cuts to programs important to Northwest Colorado such as

the money the state spends marketing itself to tourists. That spending was cut from $20 million to $15 million during this year’s legislative session. There also could be more transfers from federal mineral lease and severance tax revenues that otherwise would have been allocated to local governments in areas where the oil and gas industries operate. “If we can somehow just get up this mountain and around the curve, we’ll be OK,” Morse said. “We know the top three things in the Senate are budget, budget, budget. But what are the next two? How do we use what little money we do have strategically on what’s really important?”

Dealerships nervous about compensation Cars continued from 3 and Jeep vehicles, and Steinke said they’d sold about seven cars through the program. Cook said his Steamboat and Craig dealerships had delivered six to eight through the program. “I think it’s done what they wanted it to do,” Cook said about the program. “I think the dealers at this point are still real nervous about trying to collect the money. We’ve got a lot of money hanging out.” The government is requiring

car dealers to prove that they disabled the vehicles. But dealers can wait until seven days after the sale to destroy the engine in case they don’t get approval for the discount, Cook said. If their sale is rejected, dealers could wind up having given a $4,500 price cut in return for a car worth a few hundred bucks, he said. Another side effect of the program is that dealers are having a tougher time buying cars from other dealerships. Where they once could buy a vehicle they wanted outright, dealerships

now want to trade a car, Steinke said. “There’s less dealers out there and higher demand,” Steinke said. “The whole thing’s changing right in front of our eyes.” Steinke said Cash for Clunkers has gotten people talking and thinking about buying cars. But the program took off quickly, and he predicted that interest would wane as people bought the cars they needed. “I think there’s going to be a saturation point in there, and it’ll be interesting to see where that hits,” Steinke said.

Drivers still can enter derby Students tracked all year purpose Building stalls have been busier than ever, he said Tuesday. “Sometimes it’s just a good reminder for folks,” Vogelaar said about the fund. “They understand how the economy is and how important the sale is to 4-H and the kids, so they seem to be willing to participate one way or another.” On Friday, the night before the sale, the Demolition Derby is scheduled to be the headline event at the fair. Organizer Don Hayes, a Fair Board member, had been concerned that the derby would draw few participants. That hasn’t been the case, he said. Hayes has heard from local and non-local drivers interested in entering. He said he’s gotten calls from Kremmling, Hot Sulphur Springs and Rifle. “I’m very enthused, very happy,” he said. “In the last week, we’ve probably got, I would say, 15 out-of-town


entrants. They haven’t sent their money yet, but they’ve confirmed that they’re coming.” Hayes said he expects to have 18 to 20 cars participating in the derby. Winners from each class will compete in a final contest. High Stakes Towing, the Hayden Chamber of Commerce and Routt County Auto Parts have helped with prize money and donations, Hayes said. Entry fees go to the prize money purse. Drivers can sign up to enter until about 5 p.m. Friday. The derby starts at 7:30 and will include music from Fort Collins band Redline, which also plays at Saturday night’s barn dance. Hayes said he was pleased with the turnout for the derby, the second at the fair and the first that organizers are running locally. A Denver group ran last year’s event. “The show will go on,” Hayes said, “and it’s going to be a rowdy, rockin’ time.” — To reach Blythe Terrell, call 871-4234 or e-mail

CSAP continued from 6 Our goal was to maintain and increase.” Sweetser said it’s not difficult for scores to fluctuate with such small class sizes. Last year, 465 students attended preschool through 12th grade in the district. She said a few kids moving in and out of the district could affect scores. Rockhold said in his experience as an educator in New Mexico and Tennessee, he’s noticed it’s common for some students to blow off standardized tests that have no bearing on their grades. Both Sweetser and Rockhold, however, noted that many of Hayden’s 2009 CSAP scores exceeded the Colorado state averages. That included all but one elementary grade that could be compared with its previous year. “It’s great to be above the state average,” Sweetser said. “It’s also frustrating to have such an up year. Last year we did so

well. We have to look at what was different, what changed. “I tell the teachers it’s not the end-all, be-all,” she continued. “We just need to dig deep and do what we do.” Rockhold said the state average was a benchmark. “My plan would be to exceed it,” he said. “I’m not going to shoot for the bottom. I’m going to have my staff shoot for the top.” Rockhold said district students are tested at the beginning of the school year, which begins Sept. 8, and monitored throughout the year. From there, and after examining the data collected from the CSAP scores, he said resources would be dedicated to resources for classes or individual students where they’re needed. “We’ll take the data that we have and use it to extract what we need from it to go forward,” Rockhold said. — To reach Jack Weinstein, call 871-4203 or e-mail

The work for Shealie and Harry began in April when their father, Tim, bought them each a pink male Hampshire and brown female Duroc at auction in Wyoming.

Basalt stalls pot dispensaries Town Council approves 90-day moratorium to draft regulations Scott Condon THE ASPEN TIMES


The Basalt Town Council took emergency action Tuesday night to guard the town against receiving a flood of applications for medical marijuana dispensaries. The council approved a 90day moratorium on new pot dispensaries to buy time for its planning staff to work on regulations governing such facilities. A dispensary already was approved for the WIN Health Institute, an alternative health care cooperative on Valley Road.

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

That dispensary was expected to open this week and will not be affected by the council’s action. The council also approved first readings of two ordinances which dictate where dispensaries can open and rules of operation. Planning director Susan Philp said the ordinances were crafted quickly, so she requested the moratorium to provide time for additional research and possible refinements. The ordinances will be finalized in a second reading at a later date. One major component of the rules are that the pot dispensaries must be located at or near

A Colorado Air National Guard Black Hawk helicopter found two missing hikers in Reeds Meadow, west of the Mount of the Holy Cross summit in Colorado’s Vail Valley, around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. The two men, Andy Westergard and Bill Hird, both in their 40s and from Michigan, went missing around 3:30 p.m. Monday when they were last seen at about 13,500 feet, hiking toward the summit of the mountain. The men never returned to their campsite and another hiker at the campsite reported them missing. Westergard and Hird left their cell phones at the campsite so they could not call for help. The men were tired and a little dehydrated when rescuers found them, but they were not injured, said Shannon Cordingly, Eagle County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman. The men had more gear with them than rescuers originally thought, Cordingly said. They likely went missing as they descended from the summit and lost sight of the ridgeline, she said.

looked for them, they were also moving around, which make the search more difficult, she said. “We were kind of circling each other,” Cordingly said. Capt. Michael Odgers said the men used a mirror to attract attention. Odgers said the Black Hawk crew noticed a signal mirror at about 8 a.m. while dropping off the second of two ground crews searching for the men who disappeared late Monday. “While en route to hover over the suspected area where the mirror was seen, the helicopter crew identified two distressed hikers,”

medical facilities. Councilman Chris Seldin stressed that the council was not endorsing medical marijuana dispensaries or addressing the use of pot by voting on the proposed ordinances. “We are not entering into the debate about the legality of marijuana or its use whatsoever,” he said. As an attorney who is sworn to uphold the law, Seldin abstained from voting on the moratorium and the ordinances. The moratorium and draft ordinances were approved 5-0 by the council, with Councilwoman Amy Capron absent.

said Odgers. “The crew was able to land safely and pick up the hikers a few minutes later.” Vail Mountain Rescue Group advises anyone who gets lost in the backcountry to stay put or retrace your route back toward the trailhead until you pick up the trail or find someone who knows the area. If you cannot retrace your route, stay put, conserve energy and water, make yourself visible and await rescue. Eight different agencies helped with the search and rescue operations — The Eagle County Sheriff’s Office, Vail Mountain Rescue Group, the Colorado Air National Guard High Altitude Aviation Training Center, Summit County Rescue Group, Douglas County Search and Rescue Team, Larimer County Search and Rescue, Teller County Search and Rescue and El Paso County Search and Rescue. The search began around 8 a.m. Tuesday and ended at 5 p.m. Tuesday. The search resumed at 7:45 a.m. Wednesday, when the Colorado Air National Guard High Altitude Aviation Training Center helicopter located the men. The Denver Post contributed to this story

AROUND COLORADO Man hurt trying to stop someone taking his car DENVER

Denver police say a man is in critical condition after jumping on the hood of his moving car and then being thrown to the ground several blocks later, apparently while trying to stop someone from taking the vehicle. Police spokesman Sonny Jackson says the man climbed on the hood of his Nissan Altima on Wednesday after a woman got into the car with a young girl and drove way. Jackson says the car reached speeds estimated as high as 50 mph before it turned and the man fell to the ground, hitting his head. The car didn’t stop. The man’s name hasn’t been released. Police don’t think the man and woman knew each other. Officers didn’t immediately know how the woman started the car.

Trial begins in fire that hurt fisherman, damaged homes GLENWOOD SPRINGS

A trial is under way for a western Colorado man charged with arson after an April 2008 wildfire injured a fisherman and damaged four houses. Prosecutors say a debris fire started by rancher Larry Gerbaz flared up and spread, eventually causing serious burns to the fisherman. Defense attorney Tom Silverman says no one knows how the fire started because many landowners had burn permits and winds were so strong that embers could have blown long distances. He says Gerbaz took many precautions to manage and then extinguish his debris fire. Both sides made opening arguments Tuesday. Gerbaz faces a felony arson charge stemming from the fisherman’s injuries and a misdemeanor arson charge stemming from the property damage.

A single-engine airplane has made a belly landing at the Eagle County Regional Airport after its landing gear failed to deploy, but no one was injured. Eagle County spokeswoman Kris Friel says only the pilot was aboard the plane when it landed Wednesday morning. Friel says the airport was closed for about an hour while the plane was removed from the runway, but it has since reopened.

A coalition in support of clean energy jobs rallied at the Colorado state Capitol on Wednesday to urge the U.S. Senate to pass the American Clean Energy and Security Act. The bill calls for the nation’s first limits on pollution linked to global warming. It has already passed the House of Representatives. Republicans were overwhelmingly against the measure, arguing it would destroy jobs in the midst of a recession while burdening consumers with a new tax in the form of higher energy costs. Supporters who rallied in Denver on Wednesday included members of Colorado Interfaith Power and Light, the Denver Area Labor Federation and Colorado renewable energy businesses.

Ken Salazar dedicates wilderness area






A 30-mile section of western Colorado’s Gunnison River and nearby canyons, cliffs and mesas have been dedicated as a national conservation and wilderness area. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar was in Colorado on Wednesday for the formal dedication of the Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area and the Dominguez Canyon Wilderness Area south of Grand Junction. The areas encompass a combined 210,000 acres, or 328 square miles. The wilderness area alone accounts for 66,000

acres, or 103 square miles. Salazar says the designation capped a two-year grass-roots effort supported by officials in Delta, Mesa and Montrose counties that started while he was a U.S. senator from Colorado. “This one we were able to do in a couple years in large part because we had a large grass-

roots effort,” Salazar said in a telephone interview. “Now we have 300 square miles of land that are going to be protected for generations to come,” he said. The area is one of seven Colorado provisions in wilderness legislation signed by President Barack Obama in March. Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter praised the area as a “magnificent addition to our country’s public lands system and a prime Colorado example of how to balance conservation and traditional uses.” Obama will visit Grand Junction on Saturday during a trip with his family.

Fed: Economy leveling out Central bank holds interest rates steady at record lows Jeannine Aversa



The Federal Reserve delivered a vote of confidence in the economy Wednesday, saying it would slow the pace of an emergency rescue program and indicating the recession appears to be ending. The central bank also held interest rates steady at record lows, with a closely watched bank lending rate near zero and again pledged to keep them there for “an extended period” to nurture an anticipated recovery. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and his colleagues said the economy appeared to be “leveling out” — a considerable upgrade from their last meeting in June, when the Fed observed only that the economy’s contraction was slowing. “We’re no longer at DEFCON 1,” said Richard Yamarone, economist at Argus Research, referring to the defense term used to indicate being under siege. “The Fed is pulling in some of its life preservers now that the economy is no longer sinking.” The more optimistic tone lifted Wall Street. The Dow Jones industrials gained about 120 points, or 1.3 percent, to close above 9,360

— near their highest level since the market bottomed out in early March. The Fed said it would gradually slow the pace of its program to buy $300 billion worth of Treasury securities and shut it down at the end of October, a month later than previously scheduled. It has bought $253 billion of the securities so far. The program is designed to force interest rates down for mortgages and other consumer debt and spur Americans to spend more money. “I think the Fed is feeling increasingly comfortable about where the economy is going,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s “For the first time in two years, the Fed is taking one step — a baby step — toward unwinding the massive stimulus.” The Treasury-buying program’s effectiveness has been questioned on Wall Street and Capitol Hill, with critics saying it looks like the Fed is printing money to pay for Uncle Sam’s spending binge. As the Fed winds down the program, rates on government debt might edge higher, economists said. But the Fed appeared

cessfully tackle overhauling Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. The raucous health care debate is “a bad omen for any change in social policy,” said Ross Baker, a political scientist at Rutgers University who’s also a former Senate aide. “People seem to be very fearful of tampering with what already exists. It may be a simple reaction to the uncertainty that’s been introduced into people’s lives by the recession,” Baker said. Still, he said, if not Obama, “some unfortunate president down the road is going to have to deal with it when the crisis strikes.” Although calling Social Security a Ponzi scheme — think of the huge frauds that sent billionaires Bernard Madoff and R. Allen Stanford to prison — may be a bit of a stretch, there is one clear similarity. As in a Ponzi scheme, the concept works fine at first. So long as there are more new “investors” pumping money into the system to pay off the earlier ones, everyone is happy. But at some point not enough new money is coming in and the scheme collapses.



to feel sufficiently secure that higher rates would not jeopardize a recovery, they said. Chris Rupkey, an economist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, viewed it as a “vote of confidence that credit markets and the economic outlook has improved and will show even further improvement down the road.” The Fed left unchanged another program that aims to push down mortgage rates. In that venture, the Fed is on track to buy $1.25 trillion worth of securities issued by mortgage finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by the end of the year.

As Congress agonizes about health care, an even more daunting and dangerous challenge is bearing down: how to shore up Social Security to keep it from burying the nation ever deeper in debt. What to do about mushrooming government payments as millions of baby boomers retire? How about a giant federal Ponzi scheme? That might work for a while. But wait. That’s pretty much the current system. Social Security takes contributions from today’s workers and uses them to pay the old-age benefits that were promised to retirees. But there are serious concerns how long that can last. President Barack Obama has said he’ll tackle Social Security and related “entitlement” programs when the health care overhaul is resolved. But the anger and intensity of that debate could complicate his effort. Failure on health care could make it harder, if not impossible, for Obama to suc-

Any spread of cells to lymph nodes raises chance of recurrence Breast cancer patients with even the tiniest spread of the disease to a lymph node have a much higher risk of it recurring years later and may need more treatment than just surgery, new research suggests. For years, doctors and patients have struggled with what to do about a microscopic tumor or stray cancer cells in a lymph node. Women with “micro tumors” usually are given estrogen-blocking drugs, chemotherapy or both; those with isolated cancer cells usually are not, because those were thought to be of low concern. The new study challenges that view. It suggests that either type of metastasis, or spread, raises a woman’s risk of having cancer show up in the breast or anywhere else in the next five years by about 50 percent. “This took an area that was very gray and I think made it black and white,” said Dr. Linda Vahdat, director of breast cancer research at Weill Cornell Medical College and an adviser for the breast cancer patient Web site of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. “I think it will influence treatment,” she said about the study. “If we’re considering treating the patient, we probably should.” Dr. Daniel Hayes, director of breast cancer treatment at the University of Michigan, agreed. “It really does look like our biases are wrong,” he said. “For the first time, it suggests that isolated tumor cells or micrometastases do have biological significance.” Vahdat and Hayes had no

Study: Weightlifting helps breast cancer survivors Breast cancer survivors have been getting bum advice. For decades, many doctors warned that lifting weights or even heavy groceries could cause painful arm swelling. New research shows that weight training actually helps prevent this problem. “How many generations of women have been told to avoid lifting heavy objects?” Dr. Eric Winer, breast cancer chief at the Dana-Farber Cancer Center in Boston, lamented after seeing the surprising results of the new study. “Women who were doing the lifting actually had fewer arm problems because they had better muscle tone.” The study was led by Kathryn Schmitz, an exercise scientist at the University of Pennsylvania, and funded by the federal government. Results are in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine. More than 2.4 million Americans are breast cancer survivors, and the study could mean a big difference in their quality of life. Cancer treatment-related arm swelling now appears to be one of many ailments made better by exercise — not worse, Schmitz said. “Fifty years ago we told people who had a heart attack not to exercise anymore,” and people with sore backs to heal with bed rest, Schmitz said. “It was well-meaning advice but it was polar opposite of the truth.” Women who have had radiation to the armpit, or lymph nodes removed

role in the study, which was done by researchers throughout the Netherlands. Results are in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine. The study is not ideal: It just observed a large number of women rather than assigning some to get treatment and comparing how they fared to others who were not treated. The study also was done at a time when treatment was less aggressive and in a country where doctors had been treating breast cancer more conservatively than in the United States.

to check for cancer, can suffer lymphedema — a buildup of fluids that causes painful and unsightly swelling of the arms or hands. To avoid it, doctors have advised women to avoid using the affected arm to lift toddlers, carry a heavy purse or scrub floors. Even activities like golf and tennis raised concern. Women think, “Oh, my God, I need to baby the arm,” Schmitz said. Lifting weights — which boosts mood, muscle mass, bone strength and weight control — was thought to be a bad idea for women prone to lymphedema. Schmitz challenged that notion with a small study several years ago, finding that weight training did not make lymphedema worse. Her new study is the first one large and long enough to give clear proof that this is so, and even suggests that weightlifting can help. It involved 141 breast cancer survivors who had suffered lymphedema. Half were told not to change their exercise habits. The rest were given 90-minute weightlifting classes twice a week for 13 weeks at community gyms, mostly YMCAs. The women’s arms were measured monthly. After one year, fewer weightlifters had suffered lymphedema flare-ups — 14 percent versus 29 percent of the others. Weightlifters reported fewer symptoms and greater strength. — The Associated Press

In the U.S., many women with early stage breast cancer are given hormone blockers. “The big issue is, should these patients also get chemotherapy?” Hayes said. However, not all women benefit from chemotherapy even when their risk of a recurrence is high, said Dr. Eric Winer, breast cancer chief at the Dana-Farber Cancer Center in Boston. “Patients are looking for more specific treatment” tailored to their individual tumor type — not necessarily more or less treatment, he said.

Waiting in line at the pharmacy to pick up prescriptions, Lawrence Cafero Jr. can’t help but feel a bit guilty. Cafero is a state representative in Connecticut and taxpayers subsidize his generous health insurance plan, which requires only a $10 copay for any brandname prescription drug. “I’m standing behind either an elderly person or a workingfamily person, and they’re taking out wads, like dropping 20, 40, 60 bucks. And I’ve got $10 — $5 for a generic,” said Cafero, RNorwalk. “I’m embarrassed.” Pressure is mounting in states hit worst by the recession to

take back some of lawmakers’ generous health benefits that are funded by taxpayers. A review by The Associated Press showed lawmakers in 12 states get health insurance for free, while those in 28 states share the costs with taxpayers, often getting a better deal than private sector workers. In California, where finances are so bad the state has issued IOUs, the citizen commission that sets benefits for elective officials voted in June to reduce funds for lawmaker health insurance. The change takes effect in December. “There are employees on furlough and people being laid off,” commission member Ruth Lopez Novodor said. “It just didn’t seem right to keep the

compensation at the same levels.” In Michigan, supporters are renewing efforts to end lucrative retiree health benefits for lawmakers or at least force lawmakers to work longer before they qualify for them. Similar proposals failed in 2007. “What’s good for us should be good for them,” said Ray Holman, a child abuse investigator for the Michigan Department of Human Services, who has seen his health insurance costs rise steadily. He will lose six days of pay this year as state leaders try to close a deficit. “When you see the lawmakers who have the generous benefits and appear to be working parttime, it’s just not good leadership,” Holman said.

U.S. Marines battled Taliban fighters Wednesday for control of a strategic southern town in a new operation to cut militant supply lines and allow Afghan residents to vote in next week’s presidential election. Insurgents appeared to dig in for a fight, firing volleys of rocket-propelled grenades, mortar rounds and even missiles from the back of a truck at the Marines, who were surprised at the intense resistance. By sunset, Marines had made little progress into Dahaneh beyond the gains of the initial pre-dawn assault. Fighting accelerated after sundown, and officers predicted a

couple of days of intense combat before the town could be secured. “Based on the violence with which they’ve been fighting back against us, I think it indicates the Taliban are trying to make a stand here,” said Capt. Zachary Martin, commander of Golf Company, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marines. The operation, Eastern Resolve 2, was launched early Wednesday with 400 Marines and 100 Afghan troops, who leapfrogged over Taliban lines in helicopters to attack militant positions in mud-brick compounds at the edge of town. It was the third major push by U.S. and British forces this summer into Taliban-controlled areas of Helmand province, center of Afghanistan’s lucrative opium business and scene of some of the heaviest fighting of the Afghan war. British troops have been responsible for Helmand the past three years but never had enough forces to take and hold Dahaneh. The Marines are part of the 21,000 additional forces President Barack Obama deployed to Afghanistan this year to stop the Taliban’s violent momentum.

controls and open markets for U.S. makers of everything from DVDs to books and music downloads. The decision came down decisively against Beijing’s policy of forcing American media producers to route their business through state-owned companies. It will not yield immediate revenues in Hollywood or Silicon Valley, and it may take sanctions — or the threat of them — to force China to ease access for U.S. companies to the world’s largest marketplace. Still, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk said the decision will help “level the playing field for American companies working to distribute high-quality entertainment products in China.” “To me, that is a clear win,” he said. “We believe that this report will help pave the way toward more open trade between China and America.” The case could have worldwide ramifications as it sets a precedent for how China is allowed to manage and control foreign manufacturers and service providers.

Hillary Clinton: Corruption hurts Nigeria’s government ABUJA, NIGERIA

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday said corruption has undermined the legitimacy of Nigeria’s government and urged the nation to embrace broad political reform and ease sectarian tensions. In the Nigerian capital of Abuja on the fifth stop in a seven-nation tour Africa, Clinton told an audience of Nigerian civic activists that a culture of corruption and incompetence has hobbled Nigeria’s ability to grow as an economic power and benefit its deprived citizens. “The most immediate source of the disconnect between Nigeria’s wealth and its poverty is a failure of governance at the federal, state and local level,” she said. Clinton said Nigeria’s “lack of transparency and accountability has eroded the legitimacy of the government and contributed to the rise of groups that embrace violence and reject the authority of the state.” She cited a recent World Bank report that said Nigeria has lost more than $300 billion to corruption and mismanagement during the past three decades. And she said that reform can come only by “fixing Nigeria’s flawed election system.” Clinton raised the possibility that if Nigeria showed strong signs of change, it could lead to its entry into the G-20 nations, providing a voice in global economic and political decisionmaking.

70 die in militant battle in northwest Pakistan DERA ISMAIL KHAN, PAKISTAN

Fierce clashes between Taliban fighters and those loyal to a pro-government warlord killed at least 70 people Wednesday, intelligence officials said, a week after a CIA drone reportedly killed the top Taliban leader in Pakistan. The battles pitched Taliban militants against followers of tribal warlord Turkistan Bitani on the fringes of the South Waziristan border region, where U.S. and Pakistani officials think Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud died in a missile strike Aug. 5. Pakistan’s army sent in helicopter gunships as reinforcements to pound about 300 Taliban fighters attacking Bitani’s mountain stronghold, two intelligence officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. The fighting raged for five hours, with militants using rockets, mortars and antiaircraft guns against Bitani’s village of Sura Ghar, the officials said. They said wireless intercepts from the area showed at least 70 people — including one woman in the village — were killed. Ten of the dead were from Bitani’s stronghold, the officials said, while the rest were militants.

Pakistani clerics slain in Somalia on Wednesday MOGADISHU, SOMALIA

Masked gunmen stormed a mosque Wednesday in western Somalia, killing at least five Pakistani Muslim clerics in a country already bloodied by an Islamic insurgency and where al-Qaida is thought to be gaining a foothold. Authorities tried to find out who carried out the execution-style murders and why. The victims belonged to the Islamic missionary movement Tablighi Jamaat, Pakistan’s foreign office spokesman Abdul Basit said in Islamabad. Some extremists, including shoe bomber Richard Reid, have been linked to the group, but Tablighi Jamaat is thought to be apolitical and nonviolent. Some of its members travel the world, preaching to fellow Muslims. “They have almost a rule of not discussing politics. They prefer to avoid it,” said Ghaffar Hussain, of Quilliam Foundation, a London-based think tank. “Their stance is quite conservative, quite puritanical. But they themselves are not ... extremist.”

Jimenez, Rockies shut out Pirates

Denver coach serious about practice



Ubaldo Jimenez’s dominating performance provided a muchneeded respite for the Colorado Rockies’ tattered bullpen. Jimenez pitched three-hit ball for eight innings and Carlos Gonzalez homered early, sending the Rockies over the Pittsburgh WEDNESDAY’S Pirates, 8-0, on GAME: Wednesday night. Rockies 8 The night Pirates 0 before, it was a different story. Colorado ran through the heart of its bullpen after Jhoulys Chacin, making his first career start in place of injured Aaron Cook (toe), lasted just 2 2/3 innings in a 7-3 loss to the Pirates. “A performance like that from Ubaldo will straighten out the bullpen situation in a hurry,” Colorado manager Jim Tracy said. “It’s beautiful, wonderful to say, and even better to sit out there and watch it take place.” Jimenez said he was acutely aware of the bullpen’s need for a break. “I had it in my mind even before the game,” he said. “I wanted to go the distance, I had to throw seven or eight innings because most of those guys in the bullpen have been throwing a lot. I had to be out there for them.” Jimenez (10-9) threw 119 pitches in his 20th consecutive outing in which he’s gone six or more innings. “I don’t think there’s too many pitchers in the American or National leagues that can go out there virtually every fifth day and do that,” Tracy said. “If there are, the list is very short. that is a real statement.” Jimenez won his fourth straight decision in becoming the fourth member of the Rockies’ rotation with double-digit victories, joining Jason Marquis, Aaron Cook and Jorge De La Rosa.

Talking with the chief Former NFL Commissioner Tagliabue visits with coaches Luke Graham



Paul Tagliabue spent years overseeing the NFL as football became America’s most popular sport. But Wednesday, he told coaches, players and administrators how all sports can be used as a learning tool. Tagliabue, a former NFL commissioner, spoke in front of more than 20 skiing coach-

es, baseball coaches, football coaches and administrators at Steamboat Springs High School. “Young people in sports learn life lessons,” Tagliabue said. “One piece of that is growth and maturity.” Tagliabue spoke for more than an hour and took questions about performanceenhancing drugs in sports and what coaches at the youth and high school levels can do to stop

drug use. He emphasized how sports and leadership are a huge part of the game. He said most often, athletes are leaders and learn values through sports. So when it comes to performance-enhancing drugs, he said a big part falls on the athletes’ shoulders. Tagliabue said that in 1992, he and former NFL Players Association leader Gene See Tagliabue, page 26

The Denver Broncos aren’t taking this preseason stuff very lightly. Under new coach Josh McDaniels, all but a few of their practices have been in full pads, something that was almost unheard of under former coach Mike Shanahan. The preseason games won’t be a McDaniels walk in the park, either. McDaniels has told his starters and draft picks to expect to play deep into Friday night’s exhibition opener at San Francisco. “I feel like they’re taking it real serious because, basically, this is a whole new team,” nose tackle Ronald Fields said. “You’ve got new coaches, a lot of new players and everybody is eager to see what everybody is going to get out and do. So, it’s a serious game. We’re preparing for it like a regular season game.” With a full-fledged game plan, a couple of stadium walkthroughs and even a thick scouting report. Tight end Daniel Graham, who used to play in New England, where McDaniels cut his coaching teeth, likes the fresh approach to these exhibition games that don’t really count but certainly do matter. “I do. It gets us into a groove,” Graham said. “We’re not looking forward to 10 plays and then we’re out. We’ve got to play until Coach is satisfied with our play.” McDaniels moved two of his training camp practices to See Broncos, page 26

In a state where basketball is king, Rick Pitino cuts quite the fine figure. Designer suits, Italian dress shoes, best-selling books about how to succeed on the court and in life, a hit TV commercial with fellow college coaching titans Bobby Knight, Mike Krzyzewski and Roy Williams, a devout Roman Catholic whose priest friend often leads the Louisville team in pregame prayer. On top of that, he’s a winner. His greatest challenge, however, may be saving his career and reputation in the midst of a salacious scandal. Karen Sypher, the woman accused of trying to extort $10 million from Pitino, approached him in a restaurant six years ago and they had sex, the coach told police. She says it happened

after closing time at a table. Two weeks later, the married father of five gave Sypher $3,000 after she said she was going to have an abortion and didn’t have health insurance, according to a summary of Pitino’s July 12 statement to police. His attorney, Steve Pence, said Wednesday that the money was to help her get medical coverage, not specifically to pay for an abortion. “The coach believed that the money was for insurance, that’s what she said it was for and that’s the way his report reads,” Pence said. University of Louisville President James Ramsey expressed surprise at the new details in the scandal surrounding the 56-year-old coach, a staunch Roman Catholic whose contract includes dishonesty and moral depravity as grounds for firing. Pitino said Wednesday that he’ll continue coaching the Cardinals “as long as they will

have me.” He apologized for what he called an “indiscretion.” “I do want to say that the past seven months have been very difficult on the people I love,” Pitino said. “I am here today because I personally apologize to my family every single day. I let them down with my indiscretion six years ago and I’m sorry for that and I tell them that every day.” He said he would “be quiet” about the extortion case, but that he is cooperating with authorities and has consistently told them, his family and friends the truth. He did not take questions. The school president expressed disappointment in Pitino’s “errors in judgment” but pledged to move forward. “As we try to teach our students, when you make a mistake you admit it and right it as best you can,” Ramsey said in a written statement. “Coach has done that today.”

Paul Tagliabue’s advice: Respect the team �������������������������������������

Upshaw led a joint effort to curb the use of performanceenhancing drugs. “The Players Association and players viewed steroids like coal miners viewed coal dust,” Tagliabue said. “They didn’t want it.” Tagliabue said at grassroots and high school levels, coaches, athletes and administrators play a part in taking on leadership and educating one another about performance-enhancing drugs. He said NFL programs he oversaw that dealt with youth sports and steroids often took

different approaches in different communities — a philosophy tailored, he said, to a league of professional athletes from every background. “It’s good listening to him and learning how athletes use performance-enhancing drugs to better themselves, but how it affects the team,” Steamboat junior Grant McCannon said. “How teams don’t benefit from this because those guys aren’t exceptional leaders at all.” A native of New Jersey, Tagliabue addressed a question Wednesday about his efforts to restrict excessive celebrations, which drew many critics at the time and led many fans to call

the NFL the No Fun League. Tagliabue joked that before he took the commissioner job, he was told the workload would make the NFL the No Family League. Tagliabue’s overriding message Wednesday was simple and concise. When it comes to performance-enhancing drugs, players, coaches and administrators shouldn’t always think solely about the individual. “Respect the team,” he said. “It’s not about the ego. It’s about the us and we and not the me and I.” — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail

Invesco Field so the players and coaches could go through dry runs before facing the 49ers. They went over everything from booth-to-field communication to where the offensive players will sit on the bench when the defense is on the field and vice versa. It was typical McDaniels, who is meticulous in his preparation and doesn’t have an ounce of tolerance for ambiguity. “I think we feel pretty comfortable with everything. I am sure we will run into some sort of snag on Friday night. That normally happens your first

time out, but I think everybody understands how we are going to run the sidelines and how we are going to run the game operations,” McDaniels said. And they all understand that under McDaniels, there’s no such thing as a cameo appearance for stars or high draft picks to put in their couple of series and call it a night before they’ve even broken a sweat. “They are going to be ready to play the whole game. That is what the philosophy is and that is how we are going to prepare for the games in the preseason,” McDaniels said. “We will determine as we go who needs more work or less work as we get into the game.”

Injured journalists Ship disappears in English Channel evacuated to Dubai Jennifer Quinn


2 AP reporters wounded in Afghanistan KABUL

Two Associated Press journalists wounded in a bomb blast while on assignment with the U.S. military in southern Afghanistan were evacuated to a medical center in Dubai on Wednesday after being treated at a military hospital. The Army, meanwhile, released additional details of the attack, including word that two U.S. soldiers were also wounded in the bombing of a light armored vehicle called a Stryker near the Pakistani border. Photographer Emilio Morenatti and AP Television News videographer Andi Jatmiko were traveling Tuesday with a unit of the 5th Stryker Brigade of Fort Lewis, Wash., when their vehicle ran over a bomb planted in the open desert terrain, the military said. All four wounded were taken by helicopter to a military hospital in Kandahar. The journalists arrived around midnight Wednesday in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, where they were to receive further treatment. Jatmiko suffered leg injuries and two broken ribs. Morenatti, badly wounded in the leg, underwent an operation in Kandahar

that resulted in the loss of his left foot. The two soldiers, who were not identified, also suffered leg wounds — one of them severe. One of the wounded soldiers crawled out of the vehicle and applied tourniquets to Morenatti and the other injured soldier, according to Capt. Denis Lortie, commander of Bear Troop, 8th Squadron of the 5th Stryker. Four other soldiers in the vehicle were not injured, Lortie said. The attack took place as four Stryker vehicles were on patrol 15 miles north of the town of Spin Boldak and 120 miles southeast of Dahaneh, a Taliban-held town where helicopter-borne U.S. Marines launched an operation before dawn Wednesday to uproot the militants. Morenatti, 40, a Spaniard, is an award-winning photographer based in Islamabad who has worked for the AP in Afghanistan, Israel and the Palestinian territories. He was named Newspaper Photographer of the Year in 2009 by Pictures of the Year International. In Spain, where Morenatti is widely known, Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos spoke with Morenatti’s wife, Marta Ramoneda, to offer assistance, the Foreign Ministry said.

Isaksson said then. “I have never heard of anything like this in Swedish waters.” On July 28, the Arctic Sea made contact with British maritime authorities as it passed through the busy English Channel. The ship made a routine, mandatory report — saying who they were, where they were from, where they were going and what their cargo was. It appeared routine, said Mark Clark of Britain’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency. He said the agency is “extremely curious” about what happened to the ship. “It’s bizarre,” he said. “There is no coastguard I know who can remember anything like this happening.” Where the ship was next spotted is uncertain. Russian media reports say the last contact was July 30 when the ship was in the Bay of Biscay, and that it was later spotted by a Portuguese patrol plane, but there was no contact.

Villagers bang pots to protest silenced bells THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Which is nicer to have echoing through a small Italian village — the chiming of bells or the banging of pots? The church bells in Mezzema, a village near La Spezia, northern Italy, were silenced

earlier this month by the local parish priest. A tourist, it seems, had complained about the early morning gonging. Some residents, though, were not happy. A dozen of them protested by banging pots and lids in the street. Anna Daneri, who led the protest, said that early

Wednesday morning, after a few pot-banging protest sessions, the church bells started chiming again. They ring every morning at 7 a.m. and a few more times throughout the day. Daneri said the sound of the bells “keeps the elderly company,” and is a tradition of the centuries-old village.

First the ship reported it had been attacked in waters off Sweden. Then it sailed with no apparent problems through one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes. And then it disappeared. The Arctic Sea, a Malteseflagged cargo ship, was supposed to make port in Algeria with its cargo of timber on Aug. 4. More than a week later, there’s no sign of the ship or its Russian crew. Piracy has exploded off the coast of lawless Somalia — but could this be an almost unheard of case of sea banditry in European waters? “If this is a criminal act, it appears to be following a new business model,” Marine intelligence expert Graeme Gibbon-Brooks told Sky News on Wednesday. Russian President Dmitry

Medvedev ordered the country’s defense minister on Wednesday to take “all necessary measures” to find the missing cargo ship and, if necessary, to free its crew, the Kremlin said. Wives and other relatives of the crew members issued an appeal to the Russian government to carry out a full-scale rescue mission, using all of Russia’s special services. The mystery began July 24, when the 15 crew members of the Arctic Sea said they were tied up and beaten by a group of up to 10 men who boarded the ship off the Swedish island of Oland. The masked men identified themselves as police officers — but Swedish police said they hadn’t been searching ships in that area. Swedish police investigator Ingemar Isaksson said the crew then claimed that the men left the ship 12 hours later in a high-speed inflatable boat. “We were very puzzled when we first heard about this,”
