Cory was home for the summer from Colorado State University, where he’s majoring in construction management, when he got a cough. After it persisted, Cory went to the doctor, who prescribed antibiotics for bronchitis. After a week, Cory’s jaw started to hurt and his lip became numb. He was pre-

scribed painkillers, but things got worse. In the next couple of days, Cory was constantly tired, started bruising, couldn’t eat and experienced night sweats. “It got so bad so fast,” J.J. said Sunday, when reached in Denver. J.J. said her husband, Dave, the city of Craig’s parks and recreation director, took Cory in for a full workup, and he was diagnosed with Burkitt’s. See Fundraiser, back page

Coping with crisis of infertility � ������ ������� �

Lynn Dubinsky, PhD


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

“Just relax.” Under ordinary circumstances, these words are offered to comfort. For a couple struggling with infertility, however, these words convey a lack of understanding of the painful journey of infertility. Infertility is considered a major life crisis. This crisis has a variety of losses and “costs”: physical, emotional, financial, social and marital. Very strong emotions are commonplace. Couples experience feelings of grief, loss, anxiety, depression, loss of control, isolation, misunderstanding by friends and family, loss of confidence and feelings of one’s life being in limbo. Often, after many months of not being able to conceive, the woman is the first to be flooded with these negative emotions. Each month, the hope that maybe this is the month to conceive presents itself. Then, the


bad news comes again, and the emotional roller coaster begins another steep descent. Men often cannot understand the intensity of a woman’s emotional state and wonder if their partners are “going crazy.” Initially, men tend to minimize the problem, but after two years of dealing with infertility, their rates of distress approximate those of women. Studies have shown that infertility depression levels can rival those of cancer. By definition, a couple is not diagnosed as “infertile” until they have unsuccessfully tried to become pregnant for a full year. Once diagnosed, the journey is one full of difficult choices a couple must resolve together.

Should they consider in-vitro fertilization? How much money can they afford to put toward treatment options? Is adoption a choice for them? The resolution of these choices can create stress in a marriage. Stress can be managed in many ways. Some are physical methods, such as exercise or relaxation techniques. Others are cognitive, which involve removing negative thought patterns that create emotional distress. Taking breaks from the allconsuming nature of infertility is often helpful for couples, allowing them to focus on finding ways to stay emotionally connected. Stress is a result, not a cause, of infertility. Coping with infertility also can distress the couples’ family and friends. It often is difficult to know what, and what not, to say. Trying to deny or minimize the issue by avoiding the topic or by offering empty platitudes See Monday Medical, page 11

Deb Babcock humans need for sustenance, and one acre of potato crops can feed 10 people for a year. Through time, potatoes became a staple of most diets. In the U.S., we grow around 35 billion pounds of potatoes every year. This year in my garden, I successfully harvested Yukon Gold and Fingerling potatoes, despite our quite short growing season this year. You can plant potatoes as soon as the ground can be worked. They like a light, welldrained soil that can retain moisture but can grow in lessthan-perfect soil. It’s best to rotate your crop each year to a different part of your garden,

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

coming back to the same plot no more than once every three years. Although it is possible to plant potatoes from ones you purchase at the store, certified seed potatoes are the best since they are disease-free and have been chosen to give the best results. You can find these at our local garden centers, as well as Elk River Farm & Feed. Also be aware that many grocery store potatoes have been irradiated to preserve them, meaning that they may have been rendered unable to sprout and produce seed. During the week or so before you plant your potatoes, allow them to be exposed to some warmth and light to induce sprouting. Then when you’re ready to plant, cut the potatoes so that one or two sprouts or eyes (seeds) are on a section. See Babcock, page 11

otatoes have roots going back 7,000 years to the mountains of the Andes in South America. Farmers back then admired the ruggedness, nutritional value, and storage attributes of this tuber. It wasn’t until the late 1500s before this vegetable made it to Europe, but it wasn’t as highly prized, mainly being fed to hospital inmates. It has a long history of being the food for the underprivileged and was further shunned because of its relationship with the very poisonous nightshade family. In fact, the leaves of potatoes can be deadly poisonous, and when exposed to sunlight too long, the tuber turns green and toxic and isn’t very tasty, either. In the late 1700s, potatoes came into their own in Ireland where their nutritional value was recognized during a famine in that country. Potatoes contain most of the vitamins that

A trio of solo performances from guest violinist Stephanie Sant’Ambrogio and a spirited rendition of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4 made for a smooth opening night for the Steamboat Springs Orchestra’s

2009-10 season Saturday at Strings Music Pavilion. Sant’Ambrogio and her father, John, who is the orchestra’s principal cellist, started the program with their first public performance of Vivaldi’s Concerto in B-flat Major for

Violin, Cello and Orchestra. The orchestra appropriately laid back for most of the piece, lightly complementing the Sant’Ambrogios’ natural similarities in playing style. There aren’t too many hints on how loud to play and when in the classical sheet music of

Greensburg residents chose the third, said Wickland, a project manager for GreenTown. His nonprofit group is working with the southwest Kansas town to promote environmentally friendly construction.

Wickland will share ideas and tell the story Friday, as keynote speaker at the Yampa Valley Sustainability Council’s Sustainability Summit. This year’s summit includes discussions of utilities, water, transportation, beetle kill and composting.

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

Blue is the new black Maureen Dowd



Women are getting unhappier, I told my friend Carl. “How can you tell?” he deadpanned. “It’s always been whine-whine-whine.” Why are we sadder? I persisted. “Because you care,” he replied with a mock sneer. “You have feelings.” Oh, that. In the early ’70s, breaking out of the domestic cocoon, leaving their mothers’ circumscribed Dowd lives behind, young women felt exhilarated and bold. But the more women have achieved, the more they seem aggrieved. Did the feminist revolution end up benefiting men more than women? According to the General Social

Survey, which has tracked Americans’ mood since 1972, and five other major studies around the world, women are getting gloomier and men are getting happier. Before the ’70s, there was a gender gap in America in which women felt greater well-being. Now, there’s a gender gap in which men feel better about their lives. As Arianna Huffington points out in a blog post headlined “The Sad, Shocking Truth About How Women Are Feeling”: “It doesn’t matter what their marital status is, how much money they make, whether or not they have children, their ethnic background, or the country they live in. Women around the world are in a funk.” (The one exception is black women in America, who are a bit happier than they were in 1972, but still not as happy as black men.) Marcus Buckingham, a former Gallup researcher who has a new book

out called “Find Your Strongest Life: What the Happiest and Most Successful Women Do Differently,” says that men and women passed each other midpoint on the graph of life. “Though women begin their lives more fulfilled than men, as they age, they gradually become less happy,” Buckingham writes in his new blog on The Huffington Post, pointing out that this darker view covers feelings about marriage, money and material goods. “Men, in contrast, get happier as they get older.” Buckingham and other experts dispute the idea that the variance in happiness is caused by women carrying a bigger burden of work at home, the “second shift.” They say that while women still do more cooking, cleaning and child-caring, the trend lines are moving toward more parity, which should make them less stressed. See Dowd, page 9

Real men tax gas Thomas L. Friedman THE NEW YORK TIMES

Do we owe the French and other Europeans a second look when it comes to their willingness to exercise power in today’s world? Was it really fair for some to call the French and other Europeans “cheese-eating surrender monkeys?” Is it time to restore the French in “French fries” at the congressional dining room, and stop calling them “Freedom Fries?” Why do I ask these proFriedman found questions? Because we are once again having one of those big troop debates: Do we send more forces to Afghanistan, and are we ready to do what it takes to “win” there? This argument will be framed in many ways, but you can set your watch on these


chest-thumpers: “toughness,” “grit,” “fortitude,” “willingness to do whatever it takes to realize big stakes” — all the qualities we tend to see in ourselves, with some justification, but not in Europeans. But are we really that tough? If the metric is a willingness to send troops to Iraq and Afghanistan and consider the use of force against Iran, the answer is yes. And we should be eternally grateful to the Americans willing to go off and fight those fights. But in another way — when it comes to doing things that would actually weaken the people we are sending our boys and girls to fight — we are total wimps. We are, in fact, the wimps of the world. We are, in fact, so wimpy our politicians are afraid to even talk about how wimpy we are. How so? France today generates nearly 80 percent of its electricity from nuclear power plants, and it has managed to deal with all the radioactive waste issues without any problems or panics. And

us? We get about 20 percent and have not been able or willing to build one new nuclear plant since the Three Mile Island accident in 1979, even though that accident led to no deaths or injuries to plant workers or neighbors. We’re too afraid to store nuclear waste deep in Nevada’s Yucca Mountain — totally safe — at a time when French mayors clamor to have reactors in their towns to create jobs. In short, the French stayed the course on clean nuclear power, despite Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, and we ran for cover. How about Denmark? Little Denmark, sweet, never-hurt-a-fly Denmark, was hit hard by the 1973 Arab oil embargo. In 1973, Denmark got all its oil from the Middle East. Today? Zero. Why? Because Denmark got tough. It imposed on itself a carbon tax, a roughly $5-a-gallon gasoline tax, made massive See Friedman, page 9 Bruce Tinsley allows readers to submit comments on stories, to create their own blogs and to participate in our Reader Forum.

America is more youth-, looks-obsessed an array of expensive cosmetic procedures that allow women to be their own Frankenstein Barbies. Men can age in an attractive way while women are expected to replicate — and Restylane — their 20s into their 60s. Buckingham says that greater prosperity has made men happier. And they also are relieved of bearing sole responsibility for their family finances, and no longer have the pressure of having women totally dependent on them. Men also tend to fare better romantically as time wears on. There are more widows than widowers, and men have an easier time getting younger mates. Stevenson looks on the bright side of the dark trend, suggesting that happiness is beside the point. We’re happy to have our newfound abundance of choices, she said, even if those choices end up making us unhappier. A paradox, indeed.

Who are the real surrender monkeys here? Friedman continued from 8 investments in energy efficiency and in systems to generate energy from waste, along with a discovery of North Sea oil (about 40 percent of its needs). And us? When it comes to raising gasoline taxes or carbon taxes — at a perfect time like this when prices are already low — our politicians tell us it is simply “off the table.” So I repeat, who is the real tough guy here? “The first rule of warfare is: ‘Take the high ground.’ Even the simplest Taliban fighter knows that,” said David Rothkopf, energy consultant and author of “Superclass.” “The strategic high ground in the world — whether it is in the Middle East or vis-a-vis difficult countries like Russia and Venezuela — is to be less dependent on oil. And yet, we simply refuse to seize it.” According to the energy economist Phil Verleger, a $1 tax on gasoline and diesel fuel

would raise about $140 billion a year. If I had that money, I’d devote 45 cents of each dollar to pay down the deficit and satisfy the debt hawks, 45 cents to pay for new health care and 10 cents to cushion the burden of such a tax on the poor and on those who need to drive long distances. Such a tax would make our economy healthier by reducing the deficit, by stimulating the renewable energy industry, by strengthening the dollar through shrinking oil imports and by helping to shift the burden of health care away from business to government so our companies can compete better globally. Such a tax would make our population healthier by expanding health care and reducing emissions. Such a tax would make our national security healthier by shrinking our dependence on oil from countries that have drawn a bull’s-eye on our backs and by increasing our leverage over petro-dictators, like those in

Iran, Russia and Venezuela, through shrinking their oil incomes. In sum, we would be physically healthier, economically healthier and strategically healthier. And yet, amazingly, even talking about such a tax is “off the table” in Washington. You can’t mention it. But sending your neighbor’s son or daughter to risk their lives in Afghanistan? No problem. Talk away. Pound your chest. I am not sure what the right troop number is for Afghanistan; I need to hear more. But I sure know this: There is something wrong when our country is willing to consider spending more lives and treasure in Afghanistan, where winning is highly uncertain, but can’t even talk about a gasoline tax, which is win, win, win, win, win — with no uncertainty at all. So, I ask yet again: Who are the real cheese-eating surrender monkeys in this picture?

When women stepped into male-dominated realms, they put more demands — and stress — on themselves. If they once judged themselves on looks, kids, hubbies, gardens and dinner parties, now they judge themselves on looks, kids, hubbies, gardens, dinner parties — and grad school, work, office deadlines and meshing a twocareer marriage. “Choice is inherently stressful,” Buckingham said in an interview. “And women are being driven to distraction.” One area of extreme distraction is kids. “Across the happiness data, the one thing in life that will make you less happy is having children,” said Betsey Stevenson, an assistant professor at Wharton who co-wrote a paper called “The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness.” “It’s true whether you’re wealthy or poor, if you have kids late

or kids early. Yet I know very few people who would tell me they wish they hadn’t had kids or who would tell me they feel their kids were the destroyer of their happiness.” The more important things that are crowded into their lives, the less attention women are able to give to each thing. Add this to the fact that women are hormonally more complicated and biologically more vulnerable. Women are much harder on themselves than men. They tend to attach to other people more strongly, beat themselves up more when they lose attachments, take things more personally at work and pop far more antidepressants. “Women have lives that become increasingly empty,” Buckingham said. “They’re doing more and feeling less.” Another daunting thing: America is more youth- and looks-obsessed than ever, with

It’s normal to feel overwhelmed, isolated Yampa Valley Medical Center presents its monthly free family health program, “Taking Care of Me,” on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in Conference Room 1. The topic is “Coping with Infertility.” Lynn Dubinsky, Ph.D., is the featured speaker; she can be reached at 8798664 for more information.

Lynn Dubinsky, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist who practices in Steamboat Springs. She specializes in couples therapy and related issues.

Be careful when harvesting your potatoes Babcock continued from 4 Within a day, a callous will form over the cut section that prevents it from rotting once planted. Dig a shallow trench for your potato sections, about 4 inches wide and 6 inches deep and plant around 15 inches apart for the largest potatoes. Closer together will give you smaller potatoes, which are great in soups and stews. Place it cut-side down and cover with 4 inches of soil. As sprouts emerge from the soil, add another 4 inches. And then once the

stems are around 8 inches high, add another inch or so of soil so the stem is half buried. This keeps newly formed potatoes from being exposed to sunlight. Should that happen, they will turn green and become toxic. Keep your potato plants wellwatered throughout the growing season, but do not overwater or the tubers will rot. When the foliage turns yellow and wilts, stop watering and allow the potatoes to grow for another week or two before harvesting. When harvesting, be careful to not cut into the potatoes. Use

a garden fork or your fingers to find the potatoes and avoid cutting or bruising them. If it’s dry out, you can let the potatoes lie on the soil surface for a few days to mature the potato skin that protects it during storage. Store potatoes in a dark, cool (40 to 50 degrees) location and they should keep well for three to six months.

Jenny Thomsen held up a large can of anchovies as evidence of a change she’s made in response to a big disease. Thomsen suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, a particularly debilitating form of arthritis causing chronic pain and joint damage. “It was like being hit by a Mack truck … it was an unbelievable change,” Thomsen said during an arthritis presentation at Yampa Valley Medical Center last year. Although factors such as age and genetics are beyond our control, Thomsen and other speakers emphasized how taking control of weight, exercise, nutrition and other factors can help individuals prevent some types of arthritis or reduce painful symptoms. Despite the seriousness of her condition, Thomsen still is able to swim, golf, work as a dietician and enjoy life. She attributes this largely to medication but also to a healthy lifestyle that includes maintaining her ideal weight and eating nutritious foods, such as salmon and anchovies — sources of omega3 fatty acids which help reduce inflammation and encourage a healthy heart. The progressive nature of Thomsen’s disease eventually may make it too difficult to walk. If that happens, however, she knows she has done everything in her power to be as healthy as possible and still enjoy a good quality of life. “I’m a living, breathing example that there is hope with RA,” Thomsen said.


Understanding arthritis About one in five adults in the U.S. are diagnosed with a form of arthritis, which is the leading cause of disability among adults, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Arthritis is not just prevalent among the elderly. About half diagnosed with the disease are younger than 65. Women are more at risk than men. More than 100 diseases affecting the joints are considered arthritis. In addition to osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, types include gout, lupus, fibromyalgia and juvenile arthritis. Osteoarthritis, the most common, involves deterioration of the joint’s cartilage or the cushion between bones. It often affects knees, hips, fingers, neck and the lower back. Although there can be some inflammation, it is considered a noninflammatory form of arthritis. Signs or symptoms include joint pain, stiffness or difficulty moving a joint. Osteoarthritis eventually can make it difficult for a person to walk or conduct daily activities, though some people may never experience more than moderate, intermittent pain. Rheumatoid arthritis involves inflammation of the joint’s lining caused by abnormal immune system activity, which essentially attacks healthy tissue. The condition usually begins in the smaller joints of

the fingers, hands and wrists. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, redness and swelling around the joints and fatigue. If untreated, rheumatoid arthritis eventually can erode bone, cartilage, tendons and ligaments causing deformity and disability. Many people with arthritis mistakenly think nothing can be done to help them. Although the causes of arthritis are unknown, researchers have identified various risk factors that can be changed to help prevent development of osteoarthritis and also help reduce pain and stiffness. Great strides also have been made in developing medications to slow joint damage and relieve pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Early diagnosis is the key to successfully managing arthritis. Depending on the type of arthritis, a team of medical professionals can advise treatment which could include medication, lifestyle changes, alternative therapies and/or surgery, suited to each individual.

Self-management One of the best things a person can do to prevent or manage arthritis is to maintain a healthy

weight and prevent excess pressure on joints. A 1992 study at the Boston University Arthritis Center found that losing just 11 pounds cuts some women’s risk of developing knee osteoarthritis by 50 percent. “Weight is one of the key things we have in our control to affect symptoms and progress of arthritis,” physician Brian Harrington said at the arthritis presentation. An important part of losing or maintaining healthy weight is exercise, but that’s not the only benefit of physical activity for people with arthritis. Regular, moderate exercise has been found to strengthen muscles and bones, increasing flexibility and relieving stiffness and pain impeding daily activities. Exercise also lessens fatigue, improves sleep and helps alleviate depression and anxiety associated with chronic conditions. Helpful activities include walking, swimming, cycling, yoga and golf, which can be adapted to prevent strain on joints. The Arthritis Foundation also has developed fitness programs which are offered locally through the Visiting Nurse Association’s Aging Well program. Individuals with arthritis need to pace themselves, balancing activity with rest, and work with their doctor and/or physical therapist to determine the safest and most effective fitness routine. A healthy diet is another important component of arthritis management. Not only will it help individuals maintain or lose weight, it can help prevent or slow the progress of some types of arthritis and help prevent other health complications. The Arthritis Foundation provides information about likely benefits of various foods and supplements for arthritis. For example, Vitamin C and anti-

oxidants in green tea and other sources have been found to help reduce the risk of osteoarthritis. Antioxidants and phytochemicals in plant-based foods such as veggies, fruit and nuts also may help fight inflammation. Ginger and tumeric are among many supplements that also may help relieve pain, stiffness or other arthritic symptoms. It’s important for individuals to consult with their doctor before trying any supplements to make sure they won’t interact with any medications the person is taking or cause problematic side effects. Before diving into research about supplements and specific foods, people with arthritis can start by following a high fiber, low fat diet that includes sufficient fruits and vegetables, protein, carbohydrates and essential vitamins. Avoiding alcohol, smoking and processed foods also is important. For help developing a good dietary routine, individuals can consult their doctors and dieticians such as Thomsen, who specializes in nutrition for arthritis at Yampa Valley Medical Center. Other aspects of managing arthritis include minimizing stress and practicing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, warm baths and journaling. It’s also important to protect joints by not overdoing any activity and using adaptive tools to make everyday tasks, such as opening cans and turning the keys in the car ignition, easier. Sources for adaptive aids include Maxi Aids (, Independent Living Aids (www. and LS & S ( Various information in this report was obtained from the Arthritis Foundation.

Project includes several improvements US 40 continued from 3 Steamboat’s harsh winters. Resurfacing the roadway isn’t all the project will accomplish. Underground utilities and storm sewer pipes to improve drainage will be installed during the work. Americans with Disabilities Actcompliant ramps will be added, and curbs and gutters will be replaced. Fiber optic lines also will be installed to coordinate the street’s traffic signals downtown, including a new signal at 11th Street that will be added during the project. And pedestrian improvements will be constructed, including sidewalk bulb-outs at signaled intersections. About $1.6 million of the

more than $5.6 million project will be paid by the city. Jody Patten, of Patten Communications, the public information manager for the project, said underground utility work would take place this fall with most of the resurfacing taking place in the spring. Crews will work into November, weather permitting, and begin again in March or April. Patten said completion is anticipated for June 2010. “The idea was to try and work around the busy summer tourist season to have the least impact on local businesses,” she said. Patten said most of the work would take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. but that there would

Orchestra taps into composers’ inspirations Orchestra continued from 5 Vivaldi’s time; that had no impact on the easy interchanges between the featured violinist and cellist, who gave a seamless performance. On Franz Schubert’s Konzertstuck in D Major for Violin and Orchestra, Stephanie Sant’Ambrogio gave a strong interpretation of the classical piece. For Fritz Kreisler’s Tambourin Chinois, the guest soloist breezed through the choppiest patches of the virtuoso piece with what seemed to be technical ease. While the first part of the program was solid, the biggest wave of energy on the night came with the last movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4, a section SSO Music Director Ernest Richardson described in a program break

as pure joy. The rest of the group must have agreed, offering a rendition of that last movement that filled the Strings Music Pavilion with sound for the first time in the concert program. Richardson has a definite gift for giving the audience access points to classical music, and he did that with quick, sometimes humorous descriptions of each movement in the symphony. It gives the listener something to look for and hold on to, and reminds the audience that classical composers had more interesting inspiration to their music than we might remember. With each concert, the Steamboat Springs Orchestra shows its ability to tap into more and more of that inspiration.

Event raises agricultural awareness


Wyman Museum program brings sheep ranching back to life Nicole Inglis





It was warmer in the sheep wagon than anywhere else. As a cool rain came down Sunday on the grounds of the Wyman Museum, 6-yearold Chloe Villard sat atop the bed inside her family’s sheep wagon, heated by a wood-burning stove. She talked about what life would be like if she, like sheep-

herders still do, lived in a sheep wagon. “I could cook Ramen on the stove,” she said. “And I would keep my food there in the pantry. I would sleep here with my mom, and my sister would sleep on that bed, and we would tell ghost stories.” The wagon belonged to the Villard Ranch and was featured at the 11th annual Craig Sheep Wagon Days, which took place during the weekend.

Council tries to promote positive message Summit continued from 6 When the tornado shattered much of Greensburg, volunteers flowed in from across the country to help. Wickland came from Durango with Habitat for Humanity. He planned to stay for a couple of weeks. He’s been there 13 months. There’s no mandate for businesses or residents in Greensburg to rebuild green, Wickland said. After the storm, the townspeople got together and decided they would try. “We don’t tell people you have to put wind turbines and solar panels in every building to be green,” he said. “People do what they can within their budget.” The Sustainability Council is trying to promote that positive, can-do message with the “solutions for a changing world” theme, Ashby said. The council lowered the price for the summit this year and hopes to draw at least 200 people to the sessions at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel. Registrations are due today.

“People feel like they can’t make a change, and we want to make people feel like they can make a change,” Ashby said.

Holistic footprints Todd Musselman, a business owner, musician and speaker, will lead off the summit Friday. The event will include exhibitions from vendors and organizations. Luann Rudolph will speak with a panel about reducing carbon emissions in Colorado cities. She coordinates a grantfunded sustainable urban infrastructure program at the University of Colorado-Denver. “We’ll talk probably broadly about different research programs that we have going on here at the university, particularly those that we’re using to do sustainability energy and water planning for cities and different entities here in Colorado,” Rudolph said. She and colleagues at the college have built a method to evaluate the carbon footprint of cities. The work has led to the


development of products such as high-grade green concrete, Rudolph said. When businesses and communities evaluate their carbon footprint, they often stop measuring at their own borders. But the materials to build a business or a city building come from somewhere. That should be factored in to calculations, Rudolph said. That’s what her program does. “The difference is we’re looking at these out-of-boundary activities and trying to account for the holistic greenhouse gas footprint,” she said. Organizers are working on a pilot program to take that carbon footprint model to six Colorado cities with fewer than 35,000 people. Ashby said she hoped speakers such as Wickland and Rudolph would provide locals information “so they can go and apply it to their home, their business … learn what other people are doing so they can apply it to their lives.” — To reach Blythe Terrell, call 871-4234 or e-mail

Zazi could face more charges AROUND COLORADO

Bear attacks horse at Aurora boarding facility AURORA

A 500-pound black bear attacked a horse at a private boarding facility in the southwest Denver suburbs, wildlife officials said. The Colorado Division of

Wildlife said the horse suffered deep cuts on its neck and claw marks on its side early Friday morning. DOW spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill said the bear will likely not stay in the area and that it may have gone back to the mountains where it came from. Churchill said this type of attack is rare and that the animals may have spooked each other in the dark. Wildlife officials said they found paw prints near the area leading toward the boarding facility and other prints leading toward the mountains.

Feds: Not enough Green River water for pipeline

Firestone police: Children likely set off small bomb FIRESTONE


The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s initial assessment of how much water could be diverted in coming decades from the Green River basin in Wyoming is far less than the amount a private entrepreneur has applied to draw for a planned pipeline to Colorado, agency officials said. Developer Aaron Million, of Fort Collins, has proposed building a private pipeline to carry up to 250,000 acre feet of water a year from the Green River. He proposes to move 225,000 acre feet to Colorado’s Front Range and 25,000 acre feet to eastern Wyoming. An acre foot is about 325,000 gallons. Million’s $3 billion proposal has drawn fierce opposition in southwestern Wyoming. Sweetwater County and the cities of Green River and Rock Springs are pooling hundreds of

Investigators said they found notes describing how to make bombs in the handwriting of an airport shuttle driver arrested as part of a terrorism investigation, and they also discovered his fingerprints on materials — batteries and a scale — that could be used to make explosives. The emerging details show that Najibullah Zazi, who has admitted receiving weapons training from al-Qaida, played a direct role in an alleged terror plot, authorities said in court documents released Sunday. Zazi, 24, has publicly denied being involved in a terror plot. Zazi, his father, and an imam in New York City were arrested late Saturday on charges of making a false statement to the government, though legal experts say more charges could be coming. Zazi’s defense team denied reports that Zazi considered a plea deal related to terror charges, and Zazi’s attorney, Arthur Folsom, dismissed as “rumor” any notion that Zazi played a crucial role. Zazi’s defense team did not respond to repeated attempts to reach them Sunday. Federal officials in Denver declined to comment.

Broncos defense bruises Browns in win Arnie Stapleton



The Denver Broncos didn’t need a miracle finish to beat the Cleveland Browns — just a defense that’s gone from deplorable to dominant. Pass-rusher Elvis Dumervil tied a franchise record with four sacks — all in the second half — and SUNDAY’S GAME: linebacker Andra Broncos 27 Davis had 10 Browns 6 tackles against his old team in leading Denver to a 27-6 win Sunday. Dumervil also forced a fumble as the Broncos (2-0) caused three turnovers and bottled up Brady Quinn. Dumervil “Man, that was amazing. You don’t see a guy get four sacks in one half,” Davis marveled. “He really turned it on.” The entire defense did, limiting the Browns, who have scored just one touchdown in their last 33 quarters, to 200 yards of offense, just 56 of that on the ground. The Broncos, who beat Cincinnati last week on Brandon Stokley’s 87-yard touchdown catch with 11 seconds left, are unbeaten under new coach Josh McDaniels, who worked with Browns coach Eric Mangini in New England. Mangini’s new team is 0-2. Despite appearances, Dumervil said he’s still a work in progress in the Broncos’ new 3-4 scheme. “Yeah, I guess I’m a linebacker now,” he said. “It’s fun, though. I get to play linebacker and I still get to do what I love — rush the passer. I’ve found my niche. ... It makes me a comSee Broncos, page 21

Canadian rallies to win Comrie-Picard captures Rally Colorado stage race despite weather Joel Reichenberger




Andrew Comrie-Picard said before the weekend’s Rally Colorado stage race that he would have to be cautious on the event’s dirt and rock Routt County roads. He still managed to make the most of a strong Saturday and a rainy Sunday, winning the

two-day event by 1 minute, 46.7 seconds. His overall time on the course, shortened by two stages because of the weather, was 1:30:18.5. Andi Mancin, a Polish driver in his first year on the American circuit, was second at 1:32:05.2, and Mark Fox and

Nathan Conley tied for third at 1:35:46.0. “It was a great rally, and Steamboat Springs was a great place to have the rally,” ComriePicard said. “There are terrific roads around here. It’s great to come here and compete.” Comrie-Picard has plenty of reasons to be wary of the oftenslick rural roads. He owns his rally car, for instance, a machine that costs

hundreds of thousands of dollars and mostly resembles a 2007 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. And of course, he has sponsors that help defer the costs that come with competition at the highest level of rally racing, but he said he has no interest in wrecking his car or taking undue risks that might damSee Rally, page 21

Jimenez shines in Rockies 5-1 victory Bob Baum




Jason Giambi has had a big hand in Colorado regaining a firm grip on the National League wild card with a dozen games to go. Giambi homered for the second consecutive game, and Ubaldo Jimenez outpitched Dan Haren to help the Rockies beat the Arizona Diamond-

backs, 5-1, on Sunday. “To be frank, I think they showed us why they’re a better team,” Arizona manager A.J. Hinch said. “They beat our best, and they did it methodically.” Colorado expanded its wild-card cushion against its three nearest pursuers because San Francisco, Florida and Atlanta lost. The Rockies lead

the Giants by 4 1/2 games, the Marlins by five and the Braves by 5 1/2. After winning a franchise-record 40th road game, Colorado opens a nine-game homestand Tuesday. The Rockies lost five of six during their road trip but finished 4-5 after consecutive wins over Arizona. They are in the same place they were when the trip began, Colorado manager Jim Tracy noted, 4 1/2 games

up in the wild-card race. “We go back home with nine of our final 12 games left at home,” he said. “You’ve got to feel pretty doggone good about that.” In the NL West race, Colorado remained five games behind the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers.

I have instant leverage, I guess.” Quinn finished 18 of 31 for 161 yards and an interception on his final toss. “They’re tough,” Quinn said. “Across the board they have a lot of talent. Schematically, they do a good job game-planning.”

That gives him 11 RBIs in his 12 games since joining the Rockies earlier this month. “This is a great teammate, this is a unique player,” Tracy said. “This is a guy that lives for this time of the season, and I really think right now he’s in a really good place.” After being released by Oakland, where he was hitting .193, Giambi was lured to Colorado by the chance to play for Tracy on a team that could contend. His role off the bench behind first baseman Todd Helton suited him perfectly. “It’s a great team, that’s why

Lawrence Tynes kicked a 37yard field goal as time expired, giving the New York Giants a 33-31 victory against the turnover-prone Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night and ruining the debut of their rival’s $1.15 billion stadium. The Cowboys (1-1) went ahead 31-30 on a touchdown run by Felix Jones with 3:40 left.

Mark Sanchez came out throwing in the second half after a quiet first two quarters, connecting with Dustin Keller on a go-ahead touchdown.

New York Giants wide receiver Mario Manningham, No. 82, celebrates his touchdown catch in the second quarter with teammate Ahmad Bradshaw against the Dallas Cowboys at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Sunday. The Giants won, 33-31.

NFL ROUNDUP ute, before the Packers ran out of time at the Cincinnati 10yard line. The Packers (1-1) kicked a late field goal and recovered an onside kick, and Aaron Rodgers marched them to the Bengals 10 before a false start call with two seconds left ended the game.

Saints 48, Eagles 22 PHILADELPHIA

Drew Brees tossed three more touchdown passes, and the Saints rolled past an Eagles team missing Donovan McNabb because of a cracked rib. Making his first NFL start, Kevin Kolb threw for 391 yards and two touchdowns, including a 71-yard scoring pass to DeSean Jackson.

Texans 34, Titans 31 NASHVILLE, TENN.

Matt Schaub threw for 357 yards and four touchdowns, and Kris Brown kicked a 23yard field goal in the closing minutes to ruin the Titans’ home opener.

Vikings 27, Lions 13 DETROIT

Brett Favre set an NFL record with his 271st straight start in the regular season, then threw two touchdown passes to help beat the Lions. Adrian Peterson’s 27-yard TD run midway through the third quarter gave Minnesota (2-0) its first lead.

Falcons 28, Panthers 20 ATLANTA

Matt Ryan threw three touchdown passes in the first half, and Houston stopped a

Jake Delhomme-led rally at the end, intercepting a pass at the Falcons 4 to preserve the win. Delhomme had accounted for 11 turnovers in his two previous games, including a fourinterception, one-fumble fiasco against Philadelphia to open the season.

Bills 33, Buccaneers 20 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.

Donte Whitner returned an interception 76 yards for a touchdown, and Terrell Owens scored on a 43-yard catch in his home debut for the Bills. Whitner also made a key stop on fourth down less than a week after he was left crying in frustration when the Bills squandered an 11-point lead in a 25-24 loss at New England.

Redskins 9, Rams 7 LANDOVER, MD.

Shaun Suisham kicked field goals of 21, 28 and 23 yards as the Redskins had four drives of more than 60 yards that faltered inside the 10.

Raiders 13, Chiefs 10 KANSAS CITY, MO.

Darren McFadden answered Kansas City’s go-ahead touchdown with just more than a minute left, lifting the Raiders to the lackluster win.

Cardinals 31, Jaguars 17 JACKSONVILLE, FLA.

Kurt Warner completed his first 15 passes and broke the NFL’s single-game record for completion percentage to lead the Cardinals. Jacksonville trailed 24-3 after two quarters — the largest halftime deficit at home in team history — and was down 28 points before mounting a mild comeback.

The next day, Cory’s symptoms were twice as bad, J.J. said, so they loaded up the car and headed for Fort Collins, where he would be admitted to the cancer center at Poudre Valley Hospital. J.J. said Cory underwent chemotherapy treatments. His weight dropped from 230 to 170 pounds, she said. Meanwhile, doctors were looking for a bone marrow stem cell donor. J.J. said her son’s DNA precluded him from getting a bone marrow transplant because doctors couldn’t find a match nationally or overseas. Cory was transferred to a hospital in Denver about two weeks ago and went through seven days of chemo — what J.J. called “super chemo” — with four of those days including double radiation therapy. He was infused with umbilical cord stem cells at the conclusion of the treatment last week, she said.

J.J. said they would know in the next couple of weeks whether his body accepted them. J.J. said if everything works out, Cory may get to come home for Christmas but added that they would continue living near Denver for the next six months so he can get regular checkups. “Cory was never sick a day in his life,” she said. “He’d never even had his blood drawn until June. It’s just one of those weird things.” J.J. said she was speechless — something she’s not accustomed to — when her coworkers told her they were going to hold a fundraiser to raise money for Cory’s hospital bills. On Saturday, Steamboat City Market employees sold raffle tickets for a number of items donated by local businesses. They sold awareness ribbons, baked goods and offered hot dogs, chips and sodas for lunch. They also collected donations with all proceeds going to the Pikes. “It’s really tough, and they need all the help they can get. This is pretty devastating,” said Connie Henry, who’s worked with J.J. at City Market for the past three years. “I have a 20year-old myself, and we needed to do something to help them out.”


Cory Pike, a 2007 Moffat County High School graduate, was diagnosed with Burkitt’s lymphoma in June.

J.J. and Cory couldn’t make it from Denver to the fundraiser, but she said they got plenty of updates from her coworkers. She said they sent her and Cory text messages and pictures from the event, which raised more than $2,700. “I’ve never been a person who’s relied on anyone for anything,” she said. “You can’t imagine people would want to do this for you and your son. They came in on their days off to organize this and do this. It’s amazing. “I am just so indebted to them,” J.J. added. “Thank you just isn’t enough. I must have said thank you 200 times yesterday. It wasn’t enough.” — To reach Jack Weinstein, call 871-4203 or e-mail

Villard: We have rich history

Villard provided educational workshops for local school field trips. Saturday and Sunday offered demonstrations from butter churning to sheep dogs and helicopter rides for those brave enough to leave the ground. To Villard, who is a thirdgeneration sheep rancher, raising awareness is vital to the sheep ranching industry. “We’re getting more and more generations away from agriculture,” Villard said. “A lot of kids don’t know that food doesn’t come from the grocery store and butter comes from milk. We really want to bring awareness to children about agriculture.” Colorado Northwestern Community College and the Museum of Northwest Colorado began the event in 1999. But, four years ago, when it looked like the event would be canceled, Villard stepped in to save it. “I was worried if they canceled it for one year, it would never come back,” she said. “So I took over from there.” The sun was out Saturday,

and families wandered in and out of the sheep wagons and visited the food stand to try lamb. Inside the main tent, children with sheep painted on their faces practiced pounding their own designs into pieces of leather. As for the cramped quarters of the sheep wagons, Villard said children should learn about the simple, yet rewarding way of life. On her 13,000-acre ranch, she has one to three herders living in sheep wagons at any given time. Usually from Peru or Mexico, the sheepherders spend their days outside with the sheep and working dogs, and their nights cooking food on a simple, wood stove. The oldest sheep wagon at the festival, built in 1937, was in use until this year. As for Chloe, she still sleeps in the wagon sometimes when her grandmother visits, and will watch her family’s sheep get sheared each year. “It’s important to plant that interest in children and reinforce it,” Villard said. “We have such a rich history here, and we don’t want to lose it.”
