In the eight years since The Avett Brothers started their folk-driven foray into playing rock music on traditional instruments, the band has been lumped in with bluegrass, folk, country and indie rock acts. Avett Brothers bassist Bob Crawford doesn’t have a particular problem with any of those labels — he just thinks they don’t quite get at what the North Carolina-based band is about. “I don’t think any of the descriptions are wrong, but it’s really hard for me to put my finger on it because we’ve always just done what we do,” Crawford said. “From the first time we played together, it just had this certain sound to it, and I don’t think it’s 100 percent anything, I don’t think it’s 50 percent anything, I don’t think it’s 25 percent anything. … For us, we just do what we do,” he said. “I can just let people know that it’s very honest, the sound.

Fewer inmates staying at jail Personal recognizance bonds reduce capacity at Routt facility Zach Fridell

PILOT AND TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

There’s a little more breathing room in Routt County Jail this summer as the average number of inmates per day has decreased by almost half. Officials attribute the change to increased bonding and particularly the use of personal recognizance bonds. In July 2008, there was a daily average of 50.29 inmates at the jail, where the “comfortable” capacity is about 54, officials said. In July 2007, the daily average was 32.06, and in July 2006, it was 58.84 inmates. In July 2009, however, there was an average of only 26.26 inmates per day. Sgt. Dave Schulz, who has 22 years of law enforcement experience, said the jail is “plenty busy” with inmate bookings but that fewer suspects are sticking around. “People are bonding out

much more than they used to be,” Schulz said, noting that several personal recognizance bonds were issued in recent days for inmates facing felony charges. Personal recognizance bonds, when approved by judges, allow suspects to be released without putting any money down to guarantee their future attendance at court hearings. If the suspect fails to attend his or her next scheduled court date, however, they can be made to pay the amount of the bond plus other costs. Routt County Sheriff Gary

Wall said personal recognizance bonds are the likely reason for the low jail numbers, and he thinks it’s potentially a good thing. Wall said personal recognizance bonds can be an appropriate decision by a judge when the suspect is not an obvious flight risk. “To me, it doesn’t make sense to have a longtime resident of the community or even a property owner … pay a $750 bond (or stay in jail). They’re not going anywhere,” he said. Wall said he does not advocate for personal recognizance bonds when a suspect is charged with a serious felony. But for lesser offenses, the bonds offer a way to keep the person out of jail before trial. “If they fail to appear when there is not a cash bond, when they are picked up there are serious consequences,” Wall said.

Steamboat Springs was a nice place to visit in 1919, but guest accommodations were deemed somewhat lacking. An unfavorable review by the Automobile Blue Book Publishing Co., and its mention in the Aug. 22, 1919, edition of the Routt County Sentinel, provided impetus for the construction of the Community House. On Aug. 6, 2009, the modest log structure became the newest addition to the Steamboat Springs Register of Historic Places. “Constructed by Ernest Campbell, the building is one of the best surviving examples of his early work in the rustic style,” city historic preservation coordinator Lauren Schaffer wrote in a report on the building. “True to the rustic style, the builder utilized local materials and decorative elements to create an indigenous building in harmony with its small-town mountain setting.” It’s understandable if Steam-

No longer is it known by its original name, and it has been relegated to storing equipment for the city Parks, Open Space and Recreational Services Department. But there was a day when the building boasted handcrafted architectural details and played a role in some of the earliest ves-

Quinn: Inn is a ‘money pit’ City staff: Operator contract could minimize Iron Horse losses Brandon Gee

PILOT & TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Jon Quinn said at Tuesday’s Steamboat Springs City Council meeting that the Iron Horse Inn was one of two issues that spurred him to run for election and put him in his seat on the council. Two years later, the city’s purchase of the inn is a persistent headache. The property is projected to lose $450,000 to $500,000 this year. On Tuesday, council members unanimously

directed the city to negotiate a contract with New West Inns — owners and operators of the Comfort Inn in Steamboat — to manage the Iron Horse Inn as a nightly rental facility. The arrangement is expected to cut the inn’s annual loss to $175,000. “It’s truly the money pit now,” Quinn said. A projection for city management of the inn showed a $150,000 loss, but Deputy City Manager Wendy DuBord recommended contracting with New West Inns.

“Quite frankly, it’s not our core business,” DuBord said. A previous City Council purchased the Iron Horse Inn for about $4 million in 2007, in an effort to ensure the availability of affordable housing for city employees at a time when property values and housing costs were soaring. The city used certificates of participation to finance the purchase, an additional $1 million originally planned for renovations and issuance costs of $235,000. See Iron Horse, page 16

Atmos awaits OK to increase distribution charge Blythe Terrell

PILOT & TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Chilly nights have arrived in the Steamboat Springs area, and Atmos Energy said it doesn’t expect to increase natural gas rates as winter approaches. The price of the gas is based directly on what Atmos pays for

it, regional spokesman Kevin Kerrigan said. Natural gas prices are determined through trading on the national commodities market, and the product is trading at about 25 percent of what it was last summer. “This last quarter we actually left the rates where they were because natural gas was pretty constant,” Kerrigan said.

Atmos files quarterly if it wants to change its gas cost adjustment. The next filing will come in October if natural gas prices shift dramatically and the company wants to shift prices to correspond. Natural gas was trading at $3.12 per million British thermal units Thursday. In June 2008, it was trading at about $13

per million BTU. Because of that, rates increased 23 percent for local customers last summer. Local rates have decreased as prices have decreased, Kerrigan said. A BTU is the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a pound of water by 1 degree Fahrenheit. One million BTUs amount to about 1,000 cubic feet of natural gas. The Dallas-based company did file last month for an increase in the fees that cover its operations, called local distribution charges, Kerrigan said.

“Over the last seven years, we’ve been able to not have to ask for an increase, but just the cost of everything, of having to do business, has forced us to file for this increase,” he said. Atmos Energy placed ads in early July explaining the proposed increase. The company aims to increase its annual revenues in Colorado by $3.9 million, or 12 percent. The Colorado Public Utilities Commission will decide whether to allow the increase. See Atmos, page 13

HAYDEN

The Hayden School District will have to find alternative locations for middle school activities including physical education classes, lunch, winter recess and indoor athletic practices. The gymnasium, where those activities took place, has been closed, Superintendent Greg Rockhold told Hayden School Board members Wednesday night. He said there’s no plan to use it this school year, which begins Sept. 8. And unless the repairs are made, the gym may not ever be used again. An engineering study in July indicated repairs to the 62-yearold gym would be minimal and at a reasonable cost for the district, but a subsequent study revealed it would cost $20,000 to $30,000 to make the necessary repairs. “He came back and looked at the structure and determined to ensure safety, the renovations are a whole lot more extensive,” Rockhold said, referring to Luke Studer, of Studer Engineering, who did both inspections. “I was caught off guard. It initially looked like an expense we could undertake. Now it’s not.” Repairs include reinforcing the gym with a steel frame, reinforcing the deteriorating south masonry wall with concrete pillars, replacing doors and windows and shoring up the foundation. Rockhold said he couldn’t justify the expenditure that would be a “Band-Aid” for the next two years, nor does the district have the money. He said if the gym were used, the district could be fined. Middle School Principal Gina Zabel said in the past, students had used the high school gymnasium for P.E. classes, which split up boys and girls, and other activities, when the schools were able

Also at Wednesday’s board meeting: ■ The School Board approved the district’s new bus scheduling and routing policy after a presentation from Transportation Director Festus Hagins. Hagins presented an initial proposal to the board in July and since has made some adjustments to the stops. The new routes reduced the number of bus stops from 42 to 16 to reduce wear and tear on the district’s vehicles. Hagins still is working to figure out pick-up and drop-off times, which could be determined next week, he said. To see a list of the updated bus stops and to view the north and south town route maps, go to www.haydenschools.org. ■ Rockhold told board members that the high school’s new $13,000 scoreboard was installed Thursday and will be wired in time for the first football game Sept. 4. ■ The new fire alarm system at Hayden Valley Elementary School is being installed this week, Rockhold told the School Board. The $30,000 system was mandated by the state fire marshal. “We will have horn strobes in every nook and cranny of the elementary,” Rockhold said. ■ Hayden Town Manager told board members that the Town Council could award the street portion of the project to widen Poplar Street to three lanes and add sidewalks. If that occurs, Martin said the road would be closed, with the exception of local traffic, until Nov. 1., and traffic would be diverted to Third Street.

to work out times to share the space. Now, she said they don’t have another choice. “We’ll figure out how not to use the gym and where to go,” Zabel said. Zabel said she doesn’t know how that will work out, but she is discussing the middle school’s use of the high school gym with Troy Zabel, the high school principal. School Board member Kurt Frentress asked Rockhold to solicit bids for the gym’s repair and its demolition. Frentress said after receiving the bids, the board could make an educated decision about which direction to go.

COMMENTARY

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

This is reform? Bob Herbert

THE NEW YORK TIMES

It’s never a contest when the interests of big business are pitted against the public interest. So if we manage to get health care “reform” this time around it will be the kind of reform that benefits the very people who have given us a failed system, and thus made reform so necessary. Forget about a crackdown on price-gouging drug companies and predatory insurance Herbert firms. That’s not happening. With the public pretty well confused about what is going on, we’re headed — at best — toward changes that will result in a lot more people getting covered, but that will not control exploding health care costs and will leave industry leaders feeling like they’ve hit the jackpot.

The hope of a government-run insurance option is all but gone. So there will be no effective alternative for consumers in the market for health coverage, which means no competitive pressure for private insurers to rein in premiums and other charges. (Forget about the nonprofit cooperatives. That’s like sending peewee footballers up against the Super Bowl champs.) Insurance companies are delighted with the way “reform” is unfolding. Think of it: The government is planning to require most uninsured Americans to buy health coverage. Millions of young and healthy individuals will be herded into the industry’s welcoming arms. This is the population the insurers drool over. This additional business — a gold mine — will more than offset the cost of important new regulations that, among other things, will prevent insurers from denying coverage to applicants with pre-existing conditions or imposing

lifetime limits on benefits. Poor people will either be funneled into Medicaid, which will have its eligibility ceiling raised, or will receive a government subsidy to help with the purchase of private insurance. If the oldest and sickest are on Medicare, and the poorest are on Medicaid, and the young and the healthy are required to purchase private insurance without the option of a competing government-run plan — well, that’s reform the insurance companies can believe in. And then there are the drug companies. A couple of months ago the Obama administration made a secret and extremely troubling deal with the drug industry’s lobbying arm, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America. The lobby agreed to contribute $80 billion in savings over 10 years and to sponsor a mulSee Herbert, page 9

In an age where many around the globe seem determined to force the “American Era” behind us, this moment showed me, once again, what can Reagan be accomplished when America stands up to lead the world. Through the courage, bravery and ingenuity of all Americans of several generations, we defeated communism, just as we will defeat the challenges we face today, if we hold firm to the principles that have guided our country so far.

MALLARD FILLMORE

These principles, of limited government, lower taxes, free markets, a strong national defense and individual rights and responsibilities, were enshrined by our founding fathers long ago. Today, with government spending increasing astronomically, with the prospect of one-fifth of our economy — in the form of the health care system — being turned over to government controls, with fewer demands for personal responsibility, these guidelines are all the more important. Thirty years ago, my father understood this, and that legacy has passed down to us. America is, by definition, a nation of survivors, dating back to our founding days. Throughout our history, we have overcome the many obstacles before us with determined grit, hard work and a pioneering spirit — rather than expecting someone else to bail us out. Despite the difficulties we face today, if we have the optimism and courage of our forefathers — and that of my father — we

can be confident in the outcome. We will not always agree, but in respecting dissenting opinion, we grow even stronger in our determination to follow our own shared values. Americans are increasingly — and rightfully — growing skeptical of policies that emphasize expensive government solutions, as opposed to empowering individuals, families and small businesses. The media has dismissed conservatives as demoralized and dysfunctional. While the mainstream media has clearly missed the full picture on that count, it is time for Americans of all stripes to come together to reassert our strength and fight for our freedoms. Across the country, Americans have taken time out of their hectic schedules to participate in town halls, making their voices heard in the debate. I am proud to be coming to Colorado to join with them in this. Later this month, I will have the See Reagan, page 9 Bruce Tinsley

���������� ����������������� The public interest is being left behind Herbert continued from 8 timillion-dollar ad campaign in support of health care reform. The White House, for its part, agreed not to seek additional savings from the drug companies during those 10 years. This resulted in big grins and high fives at the drug lobby. The White House was rolled. The deal meant that the government’s ability to use its enormous purchasing power to negotiate lower drug prices was off the table. The $80 billion in savings (in the form of discounts) would apply only to a certain category of Medicare recipients — those who fall into a gap in their drug coverage known as the doughnut hole — and only to brand-name drugs. (Drug industry lobbyists probably chuckled, knowing that some patients would switch from generic drugs to the more expensive brand names in order to get the

industry-sponsored discounts.) To get a sense of how sweet a deal this is for the drug industry, compare its offer of $8 billion in savings a year in 10 years with its annual profits of $300 billion a year. Robert Reich, who served as labor secretary in the Clinton administration, wrote that the deal struck by the Obama White House was very similar to the “deal George W. Bush struck in getting the Medicare drug benefit, and it’s proven a bonanza for the drug industry.” The bonanza to come would be even larger, he said, “given all the Boomers who will be enrolling in Medicare over the next decade.” While it is undoubtedly important to bring as many people as possible under the umbrella of health coverage, the way it is being done now does not address what Obama and so many other advocates have said is a crucial compo-

nent of reform — bringing the ever-spiraling costs of health care under control. Those costs, we’re told, are hamstringing the U.S. economy, making us less competitive globally and driving up the budget deficit. Giving consumers the choice of an efficient, nonprofit, government-run insurance plan would have moved us toward real cost control, but that option has gone a-glimmering. The public deserves better. The drug companies, the insurance industry and the rest of the corporate high-rollers have their tentacles all over this socalled reform effort, squeezing it for all it’s worth. Meanwhile, the public — struggling with the worst economic downturn since the 1930s — is looking on with great anxiety and confusion. If the drug companies and the insurance industry are smiling, it can only mean that the public interest is being left behind.

School officials tonight will learn more about a proposed Stagecoach development that could create a need for a new school in South Routt County. Members of the South Routt School Board will hear an update about the Song Mountain development today at a 7:30 p.m. meeting that also includes discussion of a proposed charter school, an update on South Routt Elementary School gymnasium repairs and a presentation of Colorado Student Assessment Program scores from South Routt schools. The Song Mountain development is proposed for a site on nearly 900 acres overlooking the Stagecoach Reservoir. The residential subdivision could include 272 home lots and eventually create a need for a new South Routt school. Dina Murray, business manager for the South Routt School District, said Song Mountain is in its preliminary planning stages but that the purpose of tonight’s discussion is to update School Board members about its progress moving through the Routt County approval process. She said School Board members also would discuss a proposed charter school, which a group of parents are proposing in the Stagecoach area as an alternative to sending their children to schools in Steamboat Springs or Oak Creek. A steering committee for the school has indicated that in addition to providing education to Stagecoach children, a school facility could

also serve as a community center and meeting place. In March, the group indicated its desire to submit a charter application to the district for the 2010-11 school year. Murray said another discussion item is to update board members on the progress of the South Routt Elementary School gymnasium repairs, after lightning struck the roof resulting in a fire in June. Firefighters had to remove part of the roof to extinguish the blaze, which was contained to the gym. In addition to the discussion items, Superintendent Scott Mader will give School Board members a presentation detailing CSAP scores released Aug. 7. Mader also will explain the new Colorado Growth Model, which was created to measure students’ year-to-year progress and achievement. At 6 p.m., School Board members will be introduced to the district’s new curriculum consultant, who will provide a presentation about what her role will be for the upcoming school year, which begins Aug. 25.

Planets of fire and ice

ire and ice. These two words succinctly describe the difference between the two terrestrial planets Mercury and Mars, both of which are visible in Colorado skies this month. Mercury, our solar system’s innermost world, bakes under a sun that is only 35 million miles away and looms three times larger than in earthly skies. Daytime temperatures on the surface of Mercury can reach a blistering 800 F, while the nighttime low can dip to minus 300 F. This staggering 1,100-degree diurnal variation in temperatures is in part because Mercury has no atmosphere to insulate its surface and in part because of a very slow rotation on its axis. One solar day on Mercury lasts for 176 Earth days. This might be the last place you would expect to find ice, but that’s exactly what astronomers think they have found in the floors of some deep craters near Mercury’s poles. When NASA’s MESSENGER spacecraft drops into orbit around Mercury in March 2011, it will try to confirm this suspicion. MESSENGER will make one more close flyby of Mercury on Sept. 29 before it returns in March 2011 for final orbital insertion. You can spot Mercury this month low in the western sky as it reaches its greatest angle east of the sun Monday. See if you can spot Mercury and Saturn just to the right of the crescent moon Saturday evening, about 30 minutes after sunset. Mars has been hovering in the distance on the far side of the sun from Earth for the past several months, but the gap between the two planets is shrinking, and the Red Planet now is growing brighter in our predawn sky. Daytime temperatures on Mars struggle to get above freezing, even in the summer months at its equator, and at night, the thermometer regu-

Mars is approaching Earth in our morning sky, and as it does, it will drift past the glittering stars of the M35 star cluster on the morning of Aug. 29, just as it did in March 2008, as shown in this image. But don’t expect Mars to appear as large as the full moon, as an Internet hoax would have us believe.

CELESTIAL NEWS

Jimmy Westlake larly plummets to near minus 200 F. Earth will pass closest to Mars, at the safe distance of 61.7 million miles, near the time of its next opposition Jan. 29. I’ve had many excited people calling me recently to find out when they can go outside and see Mars “as big as the full moon,” as described in an e-mail that is circulating around the Internet. Truth is, this is the same e-mail hoax that has been making the rounds every summer since 2003, getting folks all excited about a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for an eye-popping view of Mars. Let me be very clear: Even when as close to the Earth as possible, Mars

can never appear as anything other than a bright point of light without the aid of a telescope. So, we’ll all have to be satisfied with seeing Mars as that bright reddish “star” that wanders through our night sky. Catch Mars in the early morning before sunrise this month as it drifts through the stars of Taurus and Gemini. On Aug. 29, watch Mars with your binoculars as it drifts past the glittering star cluster M35. Professor Jimmy Westlake teaches astronomy and physics at Colorado Mountain College’s Alpine Campus.

Wall: Inmate decrease won’t save money Wall is not aware of an increase in people skipping bond because of the new measures, imposed through the Routt County Court and 14th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. Wall said he hasn’t done an analysis of why fewer inmates are staying in the jail, but he said bookings appear to be the

same or even increased. In July, there were 139 bookings into the jail, with a total of 918 prisoner-days served. The decrease in the number of inmates won’t necessarily save money for his office, Wall said, because posts within the jail need to be manned continuously. The jail numbers traditionally fluctuate with the seasons. Schulz and Wall noted that

there are many jail sentences that have to be served soon. People who are sentenced to jail are sometimes given the option of serving the time at their convenience within a certain time frame. Wall said the pending sentences could affect the jail population in the coming months. — To reach Zach Fridell, call 871-4208 or e-mail zfridell@steamboatpilot.com

Commission has 6 months to review request Atmos continued from 6 If approved, the change would increase residential bills in Northwest Colorado by $1.62 a month, or 3 percent, according to a news release. The average monthly bill for commercial customers would decrease by $1.89, or 1 percent. “The primary reason for the proposed changes in rates is to recover the increased cost of maintaining and expanding the company’s gas system,” an advertisement stated. “The company serves 19 percent more customers and has invested more than $60 million in its natural gas delivery system since its last filed cost of service increase based on test year ending June 30, 2000.” The utilities commission has six months to review the request. Kerrigan said he didn’t expect Atmos to raise rates until December or January if it gets the OK. When the company prepares for winter, it typically buys half its natural gas now and half during the colder months, Kerrigan said. That’s so Atmos has the flexibility to buy natural gas at different prices. “This year is a little out of the ordinary from previous years because the prices

remained pretty low, pretty stable,” Kerrigan said. “Right now, you would start to see increases come in from the natural gas market simply because it’s the nature of the business, if you will. As natural gas contracts are agreed upon and supplies are guaranteed throughout the winter, prices tend to start moving up from that point.” Atmos Energy has agreements to provide natural gas to Steamboat, Hayden and Craig, Kerrigan said. Oak Creek doesn’t have natural gas, Town Clerk Karen Halterman said. The current natural gas rate for Northwest Colorado is

about 69 cents per 100 cubic feet for residential and about 67 cents per 100 cubic feet for commercial and public authority customers. Although Atmos doesn’t expect a rate increase, events such as a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico could cause an increase in the cost of natural gas, Kerrigan said. “We have no control over that market,” he said, “so we do the best to secure the highest quality, the best quantity at the best price.” — To reach Blythe Terrell, call 871-4234 or e-mail bterrell@steamboatpilot.com

Josh Penry, R-Grand Junction — a candidate for the Republican nomination for governor — and members of the House and Senate natural resources committees are scheduled to speak at the conference. Doug Kemper, executive director of the Colorado Water

Congress, said legislators help the organization form a twoway street, with legislators learning about water policy as they help craft laws, and the Water Congress discussing their views and conservation efforts with legislators. “You can just about hold a session of the legislature” with all the attendees, Kemper said. Kemper said that by talking about water issues with the legislators, the group also can tackle the budgetary concerns. “The budget issue drove us all last session, and it’s going to be with us for quite a bit ahead,”

Colorado also suffers from a complicated web of fiscal requirements that mandate certain levels of spending on some programs. The 2010-11 budget may include $350 million of mandated increases, according to the Office of State Planning and Budgeting. White said higher education likely would take additional large hits this year because the state’s spending on it is not mandated. “That’s why higher education always suffers,” he said. 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 oil and gas industries operate, such as Northwest Colorado. White said there is a “fat chance” such transfers would ever be repaid.

he said. The very first issue on the agenda Wednesday was a state budget forum, hosted by the Water Congress’ budget committee. Several other state and national agencies with water concerns will have representatives speaking at or attending the conference, Kemper said, including the Colorado Department of Natural Resources, Natural Resource Conservation Service and the Western Sate Governor’s Association. Anyone interested in attending still can register at the door, Kemper said. The cost is $275 for Colorado Water Congress members and $550 for nonmembers. The Colorado Water Congress is a nonprofit organization dedicated to lobbying for water issues and encouraging lawmakers to legislate to conserve and manage water in the state. The current member list on the Colorado Water Congress Web site lists more than 400 cities, water conservation districts, companies and individual members active in the organization. — To reach Zach Fridell, call 871-4208 or e-mail zfridell@steamboatpilot.com

Concert continued from 2 years, but it’s definitely a little rough around the edges. … It’s very honest, and we’re going to make mistakes, and we’re going to make them loud and in front of everybody.” The Avett Brothers has built a loyal fan base by pounding the touring pavement for years, and is scheduled to release “I and Love and You,” its Rick Rubinproduced major-label debut on American Recordings, Sept. 29. The band — with Scott Avett on banjo and vocals, Seth Avett on guitar and vocals, Crawford on bass and Joe Kwon on cello — plays today at the base of Steamboat Ski Area, as the last act of the 2009 Steamboat Springs Free Summer Concert Series. Being in the studio with Rubin gave the band a growth spurt, Crawford said. Instead of recording five or six takes of each song and adding tracks from there — the group’s method on its previous records — Rubin required 150 to 200 takes and three or four different approaches to each finished track, Crawford said. “I think what the end result is, is songs that are more fleshed out, (they have) an aural musical quality that wasn’t there before,” he said. “I and Love and You,” for example, has a fullness that comes with a few extra hands in the studio and a matured take on its themes. “We didn’t go from a bunch of raw hillbillies to Madison Avenue tennis pros overnight. We’re still in the process of learning and growing,” Crawford said. The Avetts, Crawford and Kwon could only claim instrumental ignorance for so long, given their relentless playing schedule, he said. “If anybody does anything a lot … like we’ve played almost 200 shows a year for the past four years, not counting the months we’ve been in the studio … and I think anybody who does anything, be it trying to learn the trumpet, be it becoming a better writer … you’re going to get better at what you do. It’s not your fault, it just happens,” he said. The lack of prettiness and perfection on Avett Brothers recordings was a seriously endearing factor early on. With crackling vocals and occasional giggling on “Four Thieves Gone: The Robbinsville Sessions,” “Mignonette” and others, the Avetts made all those songs about pretty girls, death, life and love feel universal. “I think there’s a lot of truth and beauty in what we do. Sometimes it’s not very pretty, the music isn’t perfect, but we do what we can with our skill

level,” Crawford said. As the recorded product becomes more polished and The Avett Brothers get a little older, the band has shed some of the sheer insanity of its live set. Stage dives come less often these days. But the group continues to “try to perpetuate the raucous legend of our shows,” Crawford said, expressing mild concern about the Rocky Mountains’ lack of available oxygen for bouncing around the stage. Even on a night when a tired band decides backstage to take it easy, the show always delivers, he said. “When I look at Scott and Seth and they’re flailing about, and it’s like, if this is taking it easy, it’s pretty crazy,” Crawford said.

Concert details Joe Kboudi, president of the Free Summer Concert Series and owner of All That Jazz music store, had never heard of The Avett Brothers before going to see the band’s show at Strings Music Festival in August 2008. “I became a fan instantly, I thought they were so awesome,” Kboudi said. “It’s just the kind of band that … I just can’t remember seeing a band like that, that’s so good and so different, and they’re so talented that I think it’s well worth going even if you haven’t heard of them.” Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside — a retro rock act from Portland that’s fronted by the uniquely crying, jazz-styled vocals of North Carolina native Sallie Ford — opens the concert at 6 p.m. today. Parking will be available in the Knoll Parking Lot and at the parking structures near Gondola Square and the entrance to Ski Time Square. Access to the concert from upper Ski Time Square will not be available, and parking in that area is not allowed; organizers request attendees go through Gondola Square to get to the concert. Riding the free Steamboat Springs Transit bus to the concert is encouraged. The LIFT-UP Food Bank will be accepting nonperishable food and cash donations at the concert entrance. For more information about LIFT-UP, call 870-8804. Food and drinks, including beer, will be for sale during the concert; beer sales support the concert series, a nonprofit organization.

The planned purchase was a hot-button campaign issue in the 2007 City Council election that saw all incumbents defeated and five new members join the council. After the election, the new council hoped to divest itself of the property but discovered that such a move would not be wise. Because of what is essentially a prepayment penalty, the $6.5 million needed to immediately pay off the certificates was significantly higher than the $5.3 million borrowed for the purchase. Instead, City Council decided to save the $1 million originally intended for renovations. The inn’s previous manager and staff ran the inn and the city nearly broke even through its first ski season. In 2008, the city contracted with Resort Group to manage the property as work force housing and established a committee to explore redevelopment opportunities. This past winter, a bedbug problem resurfaced at the Iron Horse Inn. Mountain Resorts Realty, a division of Resort Group, told the city it wanted out of its contract to manage the facility because of the bedbug problem and began moving its employees out in February. Seasonal city employees also

have since left the Iron Horse Inn, which is “virtually vacant” as of two weeks ago, according to a city staff report. “We just don’t have any tenants,” DuBord said.

Redevelopment option City Council President Loui Antonucci said allowing New West Inns to operate the Iron Horse as a nightly rental facility allows the city to offset the costs of owning, operating and paying the debt on the facility. This year’s debt service on the Iron Horse Inn is $339,103, according to the city’s 2009 adopted budget. Annual payments on the inn continue through 2032 and are as high as $480,300 in some years. “We obviously would like to defray some of those costs,” Antonucci said. Quinn said he is sour on the idea of a city-owned hotel eating into the profits of private businesspeople. “It’s definitely troubling,” he said. “It was purchased for affordable housing and now we’re directly competing with private enterprise.” Quinn said he’d like the city to divest itself of the property as soon as possible. Steamboat resident Bill Jameson asked at Tuesday’s meeting why the city doesn’t raze the inn and build

something else. Both options are problematic because of the way the city’s purchase of the inn was structured. The certificate of participation holders, not the city, technically own the inn until it is paid off. The Steamboat Springs Building Corp. was created as an intermediary between the city and the certificate of participation holders and the board of that entity would have to sign off on the city’s plans for the property. Antonucci said redevelopment remains the long-term goal and that he expects the Steamboat Springs Building Corp. would sign off on such a redevelopment. Redevelopment is at least three years away, though, Antonucci said. A committee of city employees, local residents and council members exploring redevelopment options next meets in September. “Everything is still up in the air,” Antonucci said. Antonucci said the property on the Yampa River and Yampa River Core Trail in the 300 block of South Lincoln Avenue is underutilized but that it is challenging to figure out how to feasibly create a plan for the site that accomplishes the original goal of providing affordable housing. — To reach Brandon Gee, call 871-4210 or e-mail bgee@steamboatpilot.com

The Commercial Club in turn appointed Mrs. F.A. Metcalf, Mrs. W.O. Wright, Mrs. L.L. Brown, Mrs. C.H. Leckenby and Mrs. B.G. Bradley to make a plan for a community building on the site. It is believed that it was moved to its present location in the late 1930s, Schaffer said. The Sentinel had this to report about the original intentions for the building: “The pro-

posed community house will be open to the public, and at times of storms during the summer, when many campers are now inconvenienced, the building will provide a welcome shelter,” for meal preparation. In the winter, Community House served as a meeting place for the Ski Club and the Ladies Mountain Club. The budget for the structure was $500. Campbell was a master builder who was capable in several styles, including the original Italianate style of the building at Sixth Street and Lincoln Avenue now recognized as The Old Town Pub, and the Queen Anne style home that now houses the Tread of Pioneers Museum. The Christian Science Church on Oak Street exemplifies Campbell’s approach

to the rustic style and exhibits some of the details that once adorned Community House. Those details formerly included a notched ridgeline, decorative porch posts and a stone chimney. One of the signature details, which can be seen on the front of the Christian Science Church, is a saw-toothed bargeboard made of small logs. Ultimately, the building was moved at an uncertain date to its present location in Little Toots Park, close to Soda Creek. “The long-range plan is to start restoring the building and possibly return it to a different use more appropriate to the park,” Schaffer said.

COLORADO

As cost of living declines, state can decrease pay requirements Kristen Wyatt

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER

Colorado’s lowest-paid workers could make even less money next year. That’s because the state has an adjustable minimum wage that may become the first in the nation to drop slightly along with the cost of living. Colorado is one of 10 states where the minimum wage is tied to inflation. The indexing is thought to protect low-wage workers from having flat wages as the cost of living goes up. But because Colorado’s provision allows wage declines, the minimum wage could actually drop 3 cents an hour next year. If the wage is reduced by state labor officials in September as

expected, it would be the first minimum wage decrease in any state since the federal minimum wage law was passed in 1938. It’s a small drop, but the prospect has Colorado’s minimumwage workers fearing times are about to get worse. “I’m just scratching by now,” said Denver’s Raul Ramirez, 42, who works two minimum-wage jobs, selling ice cream from a cart in the summer and shoveling snow in the winter. Ramirez said he takes home about $900 a month and can’t imagine how he could get by on less. “I work seven days a week,” he said. “I can’t do any more.” An estimate released last week by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed Colorado’s cost of living fell 0.6 percent from

July 2008 to July 2009. The drop, attributed to falling fuel prices, means Colorado’s minimum wage of $7.28 an hour could go down in January, though it can’t go lower than the federal minimum wage of $7.25. Colorado labor officials concede the 3-cent drop is probable because the amendment passed by voters says only that the wage “shall be adjusted annually for inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index used for Colorado.” But a spokesman for the state labor department said the drop won’t be certain until an official announcement due by late September. Advocacy groups that pushed for the inflation indexing anticipate a drop and already are turning to employers with appeals not to cut their wages next year.

State to build museum, justice complex Colleen Slevin

DENVER

Despite deep budget cuts, Colorado is moving ahead with plans to build a new state history museum and judicial complex, a project state officials expect to create about 2,000 jobs in the next four years. Gov. Bill Ritter and state lawmakers helped break ground for the new museum Wednesday, a day after the governor announced he would eliminate 266 state jobs and cut medical and prison services to save $320 million. The $338 million project isn’t

affected by the cuts because it’s being paid for with higher court fees and gambling revenue, not regular tax dollars that pay for the part of the budget that Ritter is slashing. The federal government is also paying 35 percent of the interest under a stimulus bond program, financing that will save the state $77 million. Colorado Historical Society Edward Nichols said the new, larger history museum — across Broadway from the Denver Art Museum — will be able to host traveling “blockbuster” exhibits. Besides the immediate construction jobs, he said the finished

buildings will bring more people — from judges to visitors — and their dollars to the area. Despite the state’s economic problems, Nichols said it makes sense to move ahead with the project now with the help of the subsidized bond program. He compared it to how the society used New Deal-era funding during the Great Depression to expand the museum’s offerings by hiring artisans to build dioramas, which continue to be some of the museum’s most popular exhibits. Historians also were commissioned to fan out across the state to conduct oral histories.

WASHINGTON

Government officials are calling on U.S. businesses to help manage swine flu this fall by getting vaccines to vulnerable workers and encouraging employees with symptoms to stay home. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke said Wednesday that employers should develop plans for managing seasonal and swine flu. Businesses should encourage employees who are at-risk for swine flu to get the vaccine as soon as it becomes available. First in line are pregnant women, health care workers and younger adults with conditions such as asthma. The government is trying to prepare for the possibility of a widespread outbreak this fall, which could hurt businesses along with the broader economy by keeping workers home.

��������� �������

Unlike regular seasonal flu, the H1N1 virus which causes swine flu has not retreated during the hot and humid summer months, and so far has infected more than 1 million Americans. Locke briefed reporters on recommendations for U.S. businesses at a press conference alongside Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. The three cabinet secretaries said each company must develop its own unique plan. The officials declined to give more detailed instructions, explaining the scope of a potential outbreak still is unclear. About 45 million doses of swine flu vaccine from GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis and several other companies are expected to be available by mid-October. Federal officials plan to begin shipping vaccines out to the states when they become available. The World Health Organization has estimated that up to 2 billion people could be sickened during the swine flu pandemic.

Looking to hide a few million from the taxman? Switzerland might not be your best choice anymore. The U.S. and Switzerland detailed an agreement Wednesday for the IRS to receive information on thousands of accounts in banking giant UBS AG — accounts suspected of holding Americans’ undeclared assets. The agreement breaks through

held $18 billion at one time, though many since have been closed. The Swiss, known worldwide for keeping bank accounts secret, said UBS had no real choice in turning over the names. Justice Minister Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf told a news conference in Bern that the deal lifts the threat of criminal prosecution, which not only would have endangered the bank’s existence but would have dealt a severe blow to the Alpine nation’s economy.

A truck bomb exploded across the street from Iraq’s Foreign Ministry near the Green Zone Wednesday, knocking out concrete slabs and windows and leaving a mass of charred cars outside as a wave of explosions around Baghdad killed at least 95 people and wounded more than 400. A suicide truck bomber also targeted the Finance Ministry minutes earlier in the deadliest apparently coordinated attack in Iraq so far this year — a major challenge to Iraqi control of Baghdad. A steady escalation of attacks following the June 30 withdrawal of U.S. troops from urban areas has heightened fears that government troops are not ready to provide security. The attacks dealt a new blow to Iraqi government efforts to restore a sense of normalcy in the capital as the overall level of violence remains low compared with recent years. Iraqi security forces have promised to remove concrete blast walls from the main roads in Baghdad by mid-September

with the aim of improving appearances and easing traffic congestion.

CHICAGO

Afghans vote for president amid fears about attacks KABUL

Threats of Taliban violence and rumors of fraud cast a shadow over Afghanistan’s election, in which millions of voters will choose a new president today to lead a nation plagued by armed insurgency, drugs, corruption and a feeble government. International officials predict an imperfect outcome for a vote that they hope Afghans will accept as credible — a key component of President Barack Obama’s war strategy. On the eve of the balloting, the U.S. military announced the deaths of six more Americans — putting August on track to become the deadliest month for American forces since the war began in 2001. Rising death tolls underscore the urgency of establishing a strong, effective government to stem the growing Taliban insurgency.

American John Yettaw said Wednesday he has no regrets about taking a secret swim to the home of Myanmar’s detained democracy leader — a decision that landed them both in prison — saying he would do it again “a hundred times.” Yettaw, 53, was wearing a blue surgical mask and clutching a green Harrods bag as he was pushed in a wheelchair through Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport after arriving in the U.S. on Wednesday. Yettaw, who has been ill since his arrest in Myanmar, wore the mask to guard against infection.

Barkley Robinson and Kelly Boniface won the most competitive divisions, but every racer who surmounted the long, winding, agonizing trail in the Buffalo Pass Hill Climb Town Challenge mountain bike race Wednesday wore the grin of victory. The course rose 3,600 vertical feet during 11 miles, a dif-

ference so great the temperature dropped by nearly 25 degrees from start to finish. All who successfully made the haul were thrilled. “You just have to keep believing there’s just another hill and another turn before you get there,” Brian Small said. “You’re hating life by the time you get up here, but it feels good.” For Boniface, the victory was yet another in what has been an almost perfect Town Challenge

For Robinson, meanwhile, the victory was extra sweet. He’s a regular atop the Town Challenge podium but was knocked from that throne for the past three events by friendly rival Brad Bingham. Robinson and Bingham broke away from the large pack of riders early, and Bingham hung tight on Robinson’s back wheel through the first several miles. Robinson finally gained See Race, page 24

Olympic ski racer Lalive officially retires Luke Graham

PILOT & TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Longtime U.S. Ski Team member Caroline Lalive, who announced her intentions of retiring with the Steamboat Pilot & Today in April, made it

official with the U.S. Ski Team on Tuesday. Lalive trained as a youth with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, raced for 13 seasons, was a two-time Olympian and stood on five World Cup podiums. She skied into the nation-

al spotlight at 18 years old, when she finished seventh in the combined event at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Japan. She also won the gold at the 1999 Junior World Championships and had 15 top-10 World Cup finishes. Lalive missed the 2006

Olympics, and 2007 and 2008 seasons, with injuries. She battled back to make the World Cup circuit last season, only to suffer another knee injury in February. All told, Lalive suffered 19 ski-related injuries, See Lalive, page 24

Carlos Gonzalez has even amazed himself with his sudden power surge. Gonzalez lead off the eighth inning with a home run for the second night in a row, giving the Rockies the decisive run in a 5-4 win against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night. Gonzalez has homered in four straight games and six of the past eight. Before this stretch, he had six homers in 130 career games. His latest landed above the Nationals’ out-of-town scoreboard in right field to lead off the eighth inning. “Yeah, I knew that ball was going to go out,” Gonzalez said. “It was a tough pitch. I saw the replay and it was down and away. I was pretty impressed with myself because the pitcher probably did not even know how I hit that ball. It just happened.” The home run gave Colorado a boost after leaving the bases loaded three times in the first six innings. “We did not do a good job tonight from the standpoint of our situational hitting,” Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. “We left the 1st Battalion stranded out there on the bases.” Even though the Rockies stumbled at times, they kept their National League wildcard lead and improved to a season-high 14 games over .500 with a 67-53 record. Colorado starter Jason Marquis (14-8) gave up nine hits and three runs in six innings, with one walk and one strikeout. Gonzalez’s home run gave the Rockies a 5-3 lead for closer Huston Street, who came on for his 31st save in 32 attempts. He has now converted a teamrecord 23 save chances in a row, but his past two have not been easy. Street gave up three hits Tuesday against the Nationals and gave up a home run to Josh Bard on his first pitch Wednesday night.

including 12 to her knees. “I’m ready because I have to be,” Lalive said Wednesday. “It’s definitely bittersweet. That’s the best way to sum it up. Had my body allowed me to, I’d have done it forever. I’ll ski for the rest of my life. But as far as World Cups or Olympics go, injury after injury, it wasn’t realistic anymore.” Lalive said after looking at her options, retirement became the best choice. She’s currently going to school in Denver at Colorado Advanced Esthetics, a leading school in skin care. She also does part-time personal training at Fusion Fit in Steamboat Springs. Long term, Lalive said eventually she’d like to own a business focusing on fitness. “I would love to have my own facility where I could improve overall body nutrition, body health and body awareness,” she said. Lalive became a standout on snow not only for her racing, but also for her ability to fight back from injuries. Dubbed by most as “the comeback kid,” Lalive never let injuries get in the way of her ultimate goal. “Caroline’s work ethic and commitment to winning is sec-

Not only with the U.S. Ski Team, but the entire World Cup circuit will miss Caroline’s infectious smile and laugh.” Lalive said she would love to come back to Steamboat Springs and open her business. She said she’d also like to help

out with the Winter Sports Club at some point in the future. Until then, Lalive is just trying to adjust to a normal schedule — something she hasn’t had in more than 15 years. “ “My whole career is one of incredible ups and incredible heartbreaks,” she said. “I started weighing the pros and cons.

Nearly 100 riders assaulted the rutted road, pedaling through thick clouds of dust kicked up by passing sport utility vehicles and dirt bikes. They gritted their teeth and bowed their heads as they drove ever upward as the sun dipped behind the mountains and the temperature plummeted. “You get used to it,” Kalmes said about the pain. “Your legs burn the whole way.” Riders often congregate after Town Challenge races, gathered into dozens of two-, three- and four-rider groups to swap stories and plan for the post-race party. The riders waited together Wednesday night, too, but each new finisher was greeted with an uncharacteristic cheer. Riders posed for photos, cracked beers and celebrated finishing the toughest leg of the Town Challenge circuit. Deep in the season with just one race to go, few rookies rolled to the starting line earlier that afternoon. None rolled across the finish line that evening. “I’ve been dreading this one,” said Marla Bailey, a Town Challenge regular but a Buff Pass first-timer. “I earned my beer.”

DE Smith learns on the fly Defensive end playing catch up after being acquired by Broncos Le Kevin Smith deliberately went through drills at the Denver Broncos’ practice Wednesday morning, making sure he got the techniques down right. The defensive end is playing catch up after Denver acquired him from New England on Monday for a draft pick. Smith has spent his first two days of practice working with defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and defensive line coach Wayne Nunnely while playing on the second unit as he gets up to speed on the Broncos’ system. “It’s been a little bit of a whirlwind. It’s a lot to digest,

consistent on my work ethic.” He has been looking at the playbook and getting familiar with the way the 3-4 will work in Denver, but he said the toughest thing is learning the language in the Broncos’ system. “Some of the things are similar, so I can relate, but knowing exactly what to do when you hear the word is probably the toughest thing,” he said. “They’ve already put in most of their package by now, so I’ve got to catch up to everybody else and learn the new things. Once I learn what’s already in the playbook, it should pick up a little bit.”

How much does Favre have left? Jon Krawczynski

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN.

The salt and pepper in Brett Favre’s hair is long gone, with only a few flecks of brown remaining in the silver atop his 39-year-old head. He has a torn rotator cuff in that famously bionic arm, and it’s been 12 years since he won the last of his three consecutive MVP awards. Favre Most Minnesota Vikings fans are celebrating Favre’s arrival as the missing link between their franchise and the Super Bowl glory that has eluded it for 48 years. They envision the exuberant, 27-year-old showman running around the Louisiana Superdome with his helmet aloft after throwing a touchdown to Andre Rison in the Packers’ Super Bowl vic-

NFL tory against the New England Patriots. But that was 13 years ago. So before the purple faithful book trips to Miami for the Super Bowl in February, one question remains to be answered: Just how much does Favre have left? Even Favre doesn’t know. “I’d be the first to admit that I don’t think I’m capable of making some of the plays that I used to make,” Favre said. “My mind may tell me I can. But I don’t know if physically I can do that. So understanding my limitations, how it pertains to what I can do, is all part of this process.” Favre practiced with the Vikings for the second time Wednesday, and the team thinks there is at least one more year’s worth of magic in a right arm that turns 40 in October. So the defending NFC North champions have brought in the once-

hated rival to lead them past the Packers, Bears and Lions and to their first Super Bowl appearance since 1977. “I think sports fans in general are going to say, ‘Can the old man do it again? How well can this guy play?”’ said NFL Network analyst Steve Mariucci, who served as Favre’s quarterbacks coach during his best seasons in Green Bay. “All eyes are going to be upon the Vikings because they want to see if he can do it. My guess is he will.” Favre is entering his 19th season in the NFL, having played at his pinnacle from 1994-97, when he revived the dormant Packers and helped return the franchise to elite status. In those four seasons, he won three MVP awards while averaging 4,015 yards passing, 36 touchdowns, 14 interceptions and a 94.6 quarterback rating. The Packers won one Super Bowl and played in another in that span.

White House honors NASCAR champions Darlene Superville THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON

Three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson had the gas to get to the White House on Wednesday, where President Barack Obama honored the 2008 winner, as well as auto racing. “NASCAR is a uniquely American sport,” Obama said beneath the South Portico, flanked by nine of the 12 drivers who competed last year for NASCAR’s top prize. Three drivers had scheduling conflicts and could not attend. Obama said NASCAR drivers work to support U.S. troops, local schools and environmen-

tal innovation. Obama said the sport certainly has grown since “moonshiners” raced in Daytona Beach, Fla., to become a service-oriented organization known around the world. “One of the core values of the NASCAR community is the belief that service isn’t just something you do once in a while when it’s convenient. It’s a way of life,” the president said. “That’s the face of America that you show to the world.” In a race Sunday, Johnson gambled on fuel but ran out of gas while leading with two laps to go. Instead of winning, he finished 33rd. It was the third time this season that Johnson has run out of gas, but that wasn’t a problem Wednesday.

Joining Johnson at the White House were other Sprint Cup drivers and past champions. Special guests included wounded soldiers from Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington and campers from the Victory Junction Gang Camp in Randleman, N.C., which NASCAR supports. Johnson’s No. 48 Chevrolet also was parked on the White House driveway, with the glittery Sprint Cup perched on a table nearby. “It’s not every day that we have a championship stock car parked out on the South Lawn. Fortunately, we got Jimmie to agree not to do any burnouts and tear up my back yard,” Obama said.

but I think I’m chipping at it slowly,” Smith said. “Coach Nunnely and coach Nolan are being patient and really working with me to get the material down.” The Broncos traded for the 6-foot-3-inch, 308-pound lineman to give them more athleticism and strength up front in their 3-4 defensive scheme. Smith came from a similar system in New England, so he thinks the move to Denver will be a smooth transition. “I just kind of look at it as the job I’ve been doing for the last three years,” he said. “I haven’t put too much pressure on it, it’s just work hard and stay

Federer’s serve solid in Cincy Joe Kay

The ball really zipped off the fast, blue court, especially when it came off Roger Federer’s racket. Federer held serve throughout a 6-3, 7-5 win against Jose Acasuso on Wednesday, facing only one break point in his first match at the Cincinnati Masters. The Swiss star made Federer 70 percent of his first serves and piled up 14 aces while getting accustomed to the tournament’s heat, humidity and famously fast courts. “The transition to Cincy is

Tim Dahlberg

TRACK COMMENTARY

Seeing isn’t always believing when it comes to great feats in track and field, so there was cause for celebration at the news that Usain Bolt and everyone chasing him in the men’s 100 tested clean. The sport not only has a legitimate star in the fastest man ever, but as far as we know, his stunning numbers are Dahlberg legitimate, too. Further evidence that athletics might finally be getting its act together is that after more than 600 tests at the world champion-

ships in Berlin, the only person caught cheating was a steeplechaser from Morocco. It could be that juicers — usually one step ahead of the drug police — are getting even better at hiding what they do, but it also might mean testing is finally beginning to prevail. We already know what Bolt is — a superstar of such rare talent that he astonishes every time he gets in the starting blocks. The Jamaican who few outside the sport had heard of before Beijing blew away Tyson Gay and everyone else in obliterating the world record in the 100 meters Sunday. He returns Thursday primed to do the same in the 200, which always has been his best event. Because of Bolt’s stunning times, researchers have been trying to estimate just how fast a human can run. And the ease with which he lowered the 100 world record by 0.11 seconds indicates it may be a lot faster than we thought. Anything under 10 seconds used to be considered world class. Now Bolt is at 9:58 — and he’s still trying to figure out how to get his long legs out of the blocks at the same time his fellow runners do. “Personally, I think I have more work to do,” Bolt said after the 100. British bookmakers are offering 3-1 odds that Bolt will go under 9.5 seconds by the end of September. Even Bolt thinks he could go as low as 9.4 seconds with the proper start. The best thing about Bolt, though, may be the show that goes along with it. He’s not afraid to preen and pose and have some fun as he rewrites the record books, doesn’t care about offending anyone

always a difficult one,” Federer said. “I’ve had very up and down results here. But it just showed sort of how hard it is to get used to these kind of courts. We don’t usually play on these fast courts, you know. That’s why I’m happy with today’s match.” Parts of his game were a little slow, but his accurate serve pushed the speed limit and carried him through a star-packed day at the $3 million Western & Southern Financial Group Masters. His afternoon match was the second of four in a row on center court involving top-ranked players — Federer, No. 2 Andy Murray, No. 3 Rafael Nadal and No. 4 Novak Djokovic.

In the nightcap? No. 5 Andy Roddick. Djokovic, Federer and Murray each won two-set matches to get the show going. “That’s the sort of thing I would love if I were a tennis fan,” Federer said. “Just keep the same seat, you know. They come rolling in. It’s like going to the movie theaters and seeing five, six great movies.” The 28-year-old Federer is the No. 1 feature. After winning his record 15th Grand Slam at Wimbledon, Federer took time off and became the father of twin girls. He got back on court last week in Montreal and reached the quarterfinals. He’s trying to get his game in shape to defend his U.S. Open title in two weeks.

when he lets up before the finish line to play to the crowd. He makes fans want to root for him, then gives them even more to cheer about when it comes time to actually performing. In Beijing, IOC president Jacques Rogge may not have liked Bolt’s style, criticizing him for failing to show respect to his fellow competitors, but the fans loved him when he ran and when he ran around celebrating afterward. It’s hard to imagine now, but there was once a time when being the world’s fastest man meant something. Runners from Jesse Owens to “Bullet Bob” Hayes were celebrated as great athletes, and track meets drew huge crowds. Then some runners began juicing, and people stopped caring. Ben Johnson was busted after winning the 100 in Seoul, and everyone just assumed that speed now came from a vial. Bolt is making it fun again, so much so that Sunday his world record win competed for attention with Y.E. Yang and his shocking takedown of Tiger Woods. People will be watching again when he runs in the 200. That can only be good for track, which has become mostly a niche sport that struggles to get noticed between Olympics. Bolt is well on his way to becoming the kind of dominating superstar that Woods is now, and we’ve seen how that’s worked for golf. We’ll probably always be a bit suspicious, if only because we’ve been burned so many times before. We see athletes doing things once thought impossible, and wonder how it became possible. This time it may be different. This time we may have someone we can simply sit back and enjoy. There’s nothing Usain about that.
