For the second time, the Steamboat Springs School District and the Steamboat Springs Police Department will split the cost of funding a school resource officer position at the high school. The Steamboat Springs School Board recently signed off on Officer Josh Carrell’s contract, which includes salary

and benefits. Superintendent Shalee Cunningham and Public Safety Directory J.D. Hays said the contract is the same as last year’s, with the school district paying $32,964 to cover its half of Carrell’s salary. The district also will split the cost of his benefits but will not pay more than the equivalent of half of what it costs to provide benefits to a full-time district employee. After more than a decade of footing the bill for the resource officer, the city asked the school

district to share costs beginning in January — the second semester of the 2008-09 school year — during a difficult budget year, Hays said. Hays said when he called Cunningham this year to discuss continuing to share the resource officer costs, she responded by saying “absolutely.” “We’re honored to have him,” Cunningham said. “He works for the whole district, not just the high school.” Hays said when the district

first agreed to split the costs for Carrell’s services, it said it would re-evaluate on an annual basis whether to continue doing so in future years. He said if the district’s financial situation wouldn’t allow it to cover half the costs of the position, the school resource officer program wouldn’t go away. “If they were to have a big problem, it would be my recommendation the city would See Officer, page 13

H1N1 pandemic flu reaches Routt Rosanne Iversen, M.D. FOR THE STEAMBOAT TODAY

Pandemic 2009 H1N1 (swine) flu is here in Routt County. And with school back in session, numbers are on the rise. Typically, we see our first cases of “seasonal flu” in midwinter. However, during a pandemic, the new or “novel” flu can arrive anytime. Routt County had its first case of the new H1N1 flu in June 2009. It is important to point out that a pandemic flu, such as the 2009 H1N1, is not the same thing as seasonal influenza. Seasonal flu comes around every year. It is especially dangerous for the elderly, children and people whose immune systems are weakened by chronic illnesses.


Kicks for Kit

Steamboat Springs resident Danny Weiland aims for the fences Saturday during theThird Annual NRC Broadcasting kickball tournament held at Howelsen Hill. Weiland, who chose to partially shave his head for the tournament, was one of about 300 people who participated in the tournament, which benefited the Kit Rice Memorial Fund.

With a pandemic flu, everyone is at risk. Pandemic flu results from an all-new virus, rather than an annually evolving one. That is why this year’s H1N1, much like the 1918 swine flu, will affect the young and the healthy. It also will spread more quickly. Our schools are prepared with hand sanitizer and a plan in place to send children home who have a cough and a fever. Federal, state and local government also have plans in See Monday Medical, page 11

Hayden High School senior Brittany Turner painted flames on a piece of cardboard Sunday afternoon. On a different sign, she painted the word “it” with a tiger paw dotting the “i” and an upward-pointing arrow. When members of the senior class eventually hold the signs together from their float Friday afternoon during the parade down Jefferson Avenue, they will depict this year’s homecoming theme, “Fire It Up!” “Last year, homecoming was really good. This year, we want it to be 10 times better,” said Jarah Woodley, a senior who serves as a liaison between the class and student council. “… We want everyone to get pumped up for this year’s homecoming.” About 20 of the school’s more than 40 seniors gathered at various times Sunday at Vance and Sue Fulton’s home in north Hayden to begin work on the senior class float. When it’s finished later this week, the float will have a mock fire pit to roast an eagle piñata in honor of its opponent’s mascot — Paonia High School — in this week’s volleyball and football games. The float also will include enough room for most of the senior class to stand on, holding signs as they float down Jefferson between 1 and 2 p.m. Friday. Those not standing on the float will walk in front of it holding the senior class flag. Another four will represent the class as

Mushrooms in your lawn?

Never compromise

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





���������� �������� ����������



ome Steamboat area residents are complaining about mushrooms popping up in their lawns this fall. As Bill Sauter said to me the other day, “It’s not that I don’t like them, but they’re slippery when I go to mow the lawn and step on one.” The part of the mushroom that we see in the lawn actually is its fruiting body. Just pulling up the mushroom won’t eradicate it from your lawn since the majority of its roots are underground. But if you pull it up before it throws off spores — or tiny reproductive seeds — you’ll limit the potential for more mushrooms. The fruiting body of a mushroom has thousands of little spores that will form a net-


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

Those pesky mushrooms that grown in your lawn can be eradicated by taking the proper steps.

work of roots under your lawn and produce more fruiting bodies when the conditions are right. It is not easy to get rid of mushrooms in your lawn, since you need to remove all of the soil that holds the roots or spores. And since mushroom roots, called mycelium, can grow as much as half a mile a day, your entire lawn could be affected. Instead, you can try to make the environment less conducive to mushroom growth. Mushrooms prefer moist areas in which to grow. Therefore, you can limit mushroom growth by keeping your lawn mowed, not saturated with water, not over-fertilized, and by removing litter such as leaves, pet droppings, and grass trimmings that feed the fungus. If you haven’t aerated your lawn in a while, this will help with drainage and allow for better air movement through your grass, keeping it dryer and less conducive to mushroom growth. Fungicides are available to help control mushrooms in the lawn, but they are pretty toxic — some have been banned in recent years — and they won’t completely eliminate mushrooms, anyway. Most of the fungus is below your lawn and inaccessible to these chemicals. To be truly effective, you need to remove the mushroom’s food

source, which often is decaying matter under your grass, often an old tree stump or similar decayed organic material. Fairy rings are a special case different from the occasional toadstool that pops up in the lawn. Fairy rings make circles or arcs of mushrooms in the lawn and can turn areas of the grass brown and unsightly. Often, there is a tree stump underground or other similar food source sustaining these mushrooms. There’s no good control for fairy ring, but you can temporarily mitigate the problem with regular mowing and with regular applications of low rates of nitrogen. Many of the mushrooms that grow in lawns here are edible. But unless you know for certain what kind of mushroom is growing in your lawn, do not eat it. Many poisonous mushrooms look similar to edible ones. Most mushrooms found in lawns are harmless to the grass, so if they don’t bother you too much, try these steps to limit their growth. And know that as the mushroom fruiting body decomposes, it releases nutrients into your soil that grass roots can use for healthy growth.

Company gets aggressive Steamboat Resorts cuts prices in half to attract attention, bookings STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Steamboat Resorts wasn’t ready to wait to see how this winter turned out for lodging, President Bob Milne said at a Business Outlook Breakfast last week. So the company put itself out there. To increase visibility, the property management company offered 50 percent discounts to returning customers. Steamboat Resorts gave people a month to book and split the discounted rooms equally among December, January, February and March, Milne said. “None of us really knew what to expect,” Milne said. “I thought maybe it was a little aggressive.” The company offered the discount at resorts in Steamboat Springs, Vail and Beaver Creek. “What happened was the phones went crazy,” Milne said. “They went crazy. We had our busiest reservation day in the history of our company, 888 phone calls.” Steamboat Resorts finished down about 25 percent for the 2008-09 ski season, he said. Its Vail properties were 12 percent down, and Beaver Creek took a hit to the tune of 40 percent. The discounting was part of an attempt to turn things around. Milne told Steamboat Resorts’ story Thursday as part of the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association’s breakfast. The Chamber started the breakfasts to provide perspectives to the business community on the state of the real estate, skiing, banking, lodging and building industries. Another is planned for early December. Milne said his company succeeded in generating business. People who couldn’t get the 50 percent off deal instead asked what deals they could snag. “We’re actually booking on a daily basis,” Milne said. “We’re booking 10 to 15 percent more a day than we did last year. It doesn’t get us back to the volume of the year before, but it is encouraging.” The bargain hunting does mean that people will spend less on lodging, said Chris Diamond, Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. president. The average daily rate is likely to still be lower than it was in solid economic times. After last season’s challenges, lodging companies are faster to drop prices, Diamond said. “Last year, we were looking at some pretty firm pricing, and everybody wants to hold on as long as they can until they drop their shorts, so to speak,” he said. Steamboat Central Reservations sent out an e-mail last

week advertising 25 percent off lifts and lodging for people who book by Oct. 8. That deal is restricted during busy times, however, offering 15 percent off during the post-Christmas week and 10 percent off during Presidents’ Day week. Milne said Steamboat Resorts was employing other strategies to draw customers. The company increased its marketing budget 10 percent, he said, and is sending sales teams to Dallas and other cities to market Steamboat. “Our attitude is let’s go out and create the demand and worry about raising yield next year when we get the demand

back,” he said. Milne and other speakers reminded businesses that now was the time to focus on service. Steamboat must provide topnotch service to keep visitors happy so they’ll want to return. Also, Diamond and Milne said, good economic news doesn’t mean it’s time to open the floodgates and start handing out bags of cash. Business owners should continue to watch their pennies, Diamond said. Milne offered a similar suggestion. “I think we need to prepare and run our businesses like last year, and if it’s better, great — crack the champagne.”

O’Hara said in the release. “These surveys are an important tool for us as we strive for excellence in public service.” This is the third year for the survey program, and more than half of Colorado’s 23 judicial districts already have been surveyed. This will be the first time for the Fourteenth Judicial District of Grand, Moffat and Routt counties. “These are the people’s courts,’’ Supreme Court Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey said in the release. “Coloradans deserve the best the Judicial Branch can possibly offer them.”

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

The devil wears Crocs Maureen Dowd


At the end of many Shakespearean dramas, self-destructive leaders are usually strewn dead on stage. With modern presidencies, we have to watch the poignant tableau of such leaders realizing that they have squandered their chance for greatness even as they suffer the indignity of rejection by those who once sought their blessing. These painful periods Dowd for W. and Bill Clinton, falling low after starting with such grand hopes, are recounted in two new books. The pen-and-tell by Bush speechwriter Matt Latimer, “Speech-less,” is being denounced by some former Bushies and Republican commentators as a “Devil Wears Prada” betrayal. (Except, in this

case, the devil wears Crocs. Preparing to make a prime-time address explaining why the 2008 economic bailout wasn’t socialism — “We got to make this understandable for the average cat,” the president tells his speechwriters — W. pads around the White House in Crocs, an image that’s hard to get out of your head.) “The guy is a worm,” Bill Bennett told Wolf Blitzer about Latimer, adding: “He needs to read his Dante. He probably hasn’t read ‘The Inferno.’ The lowest circles of hell are for people who are disloyal in the way this guy is disloyal, and at the very lowest point Satan chews on their bodies.” Despite all the devilish critiques, the book is not that hard on W., except to state the obvious: that he was a Decider who made bold but bad decisions. And it’s positively dewy-eyed about two of the worst decisions, Dick Cheney and Rummy. (Latimer wrote speeches

for Rummy at the Pentagon and is now helping the former defense chief with his memoir.) My favorite part is when the White House political office suggests that W. go to Monticello and make a speech pointing out that his legacy matched Thomas Jefferson’s. “Jefferson had founded the University of Virginia,” Latimer writes, describing the aides’ reasoning. “Well, they said, Bush had gotten the No Child Left Behind Act passed. Jefferson had authored the Declaration of Independence. Well, Bush had launched the Freedom Agenda in Afghanistan and Iraq. Jefferson had authored the Virginia statute for religious freedom. Well, that was just like the president’s faith-based initiative.” Latimer balked, noting that “if Bush actually went to Monticello to proclaim himself the Thomas Jefferson of our day, there’d be grounds to quesSee Dowd, page 9

Glenn Beck explained Cal Thomas


“They would not listen, they’re not listening still, “Perhaps they never will.” — Don McLean, “Vincent” Radio and TV commentator Glenn Beck was mentioned three times in separate opinion columns on the same day and in an article the next day in The New York Times, possibly a record for someone who Thomas does not hold elective office. Oh, and then there’s this week’s Time magazine cover. He’s everywhere. Beck is also the Left’s latest explanation for what is wrong with America. Many on the Left believe that if conservatives would just get out of the way, shut up


and allow liberals to re-create America in their image, we would all be better off. But those loud-mouthed cable TV and radio talk show hosts keep uneducated, God-worshipping, flag-waving, NASCAR-loving, country music-fueled trailer trash riled up and prevent their brave new world from being born. The articles, essays and columns about Beck, and so many others on the Right, drip with the condescension conservatives have come to expect from liberal elites who think because they went to the “right” schools they are better than everyone else. I had not met Glenn Beck, so last week I visited him in his high-rise Manhattan office. His walls are decorated with black-and-white photographs of people he clearly admires. There are entertainers like Red Skelton and a young filmmaker named Walt Disney. You could watch Skelton on TV and view Disney movies along with your

wife and kids, knowing you’d never hear a bad word, including a bad word about America. Beck has an old Admiral black-andwhite TV an aide says they are trying to “make work.” When it did work, it carried programs worth watching, including news broadcasts by real journalists like Edward R. Murrow, whose photo hangs on a wall close to Beck’s office. Is it Beck who is stirring the pot or has the pot been stirring for some time and it is he, and a few others, giving the masses a voice? Maybe it’s the leadership vacuum in the country that has thrust Beck and Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin (1 million of his latest book sold) and others to the forefront. If Republicans were behaving like Republicans, perhaps there would be less perceived need for them. If the Left bothered to hang out See Thomas, page 9 Bruce Tinsley allows readers to submit comments on stories, to create their own blogs and to participate in our Reader Forum.

Gore, McCain ran awful campaigns �������������������������

Beck is challenging O’Reilly by caring Thomas continued from 8 where conservatives do and take seriously their concerns about a country to which they pay taxes and for which many of them, or their parents, or children have fought, maybe they would understand what has so many upset. Pollster Frank Luntz understands. In a recent column for The New York Daily News, Luntz reports on his interview survey of 6,400 people, the results of which appear in his new book “What Americans Really Want ... Really.” Luntz discovered that people are angry with the government because of the lack of accountability by our leaders and a lack of progress on anything meaningful in Washington. The “absence of accountability,” he writes, “ranks No.

class that ignores the very real suffering of the working class (if they are, in fact, working) while pocketing million-dollar bonuses has convinced the public that no one cares.” Glenn Beck seems to care and that’s why his ratings are now challenging the godfather of cable, Bill O’Reilly. I ask if he fears being transformed into another “Lonesome Rhodes,” the politically corrupted main character in Budd Schulberg’s classic film, “A Face in the Crowd”? Beck tells me I am not the first to warn of such a possibility. He says he isn’t worried about yielding to that temptation. Beck believes in God and doesn’t think government is Him. And he’s going to his son’s ball game the next day. That explains Glenn Beck. Any questions?

1 in the hearts and guts of the average American. Washington spends billions to bail out big business and then can’t explain where the money went. Washington spends $800 billion on a stimulus package filled with earmarks and pork projects. And now Washington is trying to create a trillion-dollar health-care experiment when over 85 percent of Americans are satisfied with their health care just as it is.” As Professor Harold Hill put it: “Make your blood boil? Well, I should say.” Luntz continues: “This could be forgiven, perhaps, if those elected officials from Washington exhibited even an ounce of respect for the voters who pay their salaries. But the combination of a political class that ignores those with whom they disagree and a business



election. He chastised Gore for not running on bigger themes and for dropping the issue he was most passionate about: the environment. Gore asked Clinton for an explanation of Monica Lewinsky; he wanted an apology. Clinton blew up. Focusing on his mistakes, he told his VP, demeaned voters and ignored the public’s business. Branch summed up Clinton’s bottom line to Gore: “By God, Hillary had a helluva lot more reason to resent Clinton than Gore did, and yet she ran unabashedly on the Clinton-Gore record” for the Senate and won handily. Gore, Clinton said, was in “Neverland.” The wrong turns Clinton and W. took made it harder for Gore and McCain to get elected. But in the final analyses, Clinton and W., both clever pols, were right: Gore and McCain tripped themselves up with awful campaigns.

tion his sanity.” His book ends with the downbeat time when Bush supports McCain simply because “a McCain defeat would be a repudiation of the Bush administration.” Both Republicans were uncomfortable. McCain was distancing himself from the unpopular Republican president and W. “was clearly not impressed with the McCain operation.” One day, W. was told that a joint appearance in Phoenix with McCain, designed to show the two men could stand to be on the same stage together, was going to be closed to the press. “If he doesn’t want me to go, fine,” W. snapped. “I’ve got better things to do.” Then the president was informed that the event was going to be closed because McCain was having trouble drawing a crowd. Latimer writes that an incredulous Bush mordantly asked: “He can’t get 500 people to show up for an

event in his hometown?” Happy he wasn’t the only political wallflower, W. drove home the point: “I could get that many people to turn out in Crawford. This is a five-spiral crash, boys.” Like W., Bill Clinton had an awkward final act supporting Gore, even though Gore was distancing himself from Clinton, and Bubba was chafing at the misguided Gore campaign. Like W. with McCain, he felt a Gore defeat would be bad for his legacy. In his new book, “The Clinton Tapes,” Taylor Branch describes an explosive meeting between Clinton and Gore after the election characterized by Clinton as “surreal.” Gore said people around him blamed Clinton’s scandalous shadow for the defeat. And Clinton, who told Branch that W. was “an empty suit, meaner than his dad,” shot back that if Gore had used him more in the last 10 days in places where he was still popular, he could have swung the

Seasonal shot will not protect against H1N1 Monday Medical continued from 2

place. The 2009 H1N1 flu vaccine should arrive in Steamboat Springs in the middle of October. You will be able to get the vaccine from physician offices as well as the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurses Association. Not everyone will be able to get the vaccine when it first arrives. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the first to receive the vaccine will be: pregnant women; people who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age; health care and emergency medical services personnel; persons between the ages of 6 months and 24 years old; and people ages 25 through 64 who are at higher risk for 2009 H1N1 because of chronic health disorders or compromised immune systems. Why this tiered approach? There will be enough of the vaccine for everyone, but it will trickle in. We want to first immunize those at highest risk of spreading it, as well as those most likely to have severe complications.

Yampa Valley Medical Center will host “2009 H1N1 (swine) Flu Update” on Wednesday at 7 p.m. Presented by Dr. Rosanne Iversen, Steamboat Family Medicine, Steve Hilley, RN, YVMC’s Emergency Preparedness Coordinator, YVMC, and Jim Johnsen, EMT, Emergency Preparedness & Response Coordinator, and the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurses Association. The presentation will be in the hospital’s Conference Room 1. This event is free and open to the public.

tier. This is because almost all cases of H1N1 so far have been younger than 65. More than 50 percent of cases are younger than 25. It is possible that the older you are, the more likely your body can recognize and defend against the 2009 H1N1 because of its similarity to other viruses in the past. Get vaccinated now for seasonal flu. When the 2009 H1N1 vaccine becomes available, make sure to get the shot for that, too. The seasonal flu shot will not protect you from 2009 H1N1 because it is a different virus. Take the flu seriously, and protect yourself. In the United States, 36,000 people die annually from the seasonal flu. The 2009 H1N1 should be treated as being just as deadly and has the ability to affect more people.

Medications: Blurring the line between helpful, harmful Tamera Manzanares



Chronic pain, anxiety and depression are just a few problems that can send a person to their doctor’s office for relief. Chances are, they will leave with one or more prescriptions for medications. Although prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications can greatly improve a person’s quality of life, misuse can quickly blur the line between feeling better and feeling worse. Older adults consume the most prescription and over-thecounter drugs of any age group. This, in addition to other agerelated changes, make older adults particularly vulnerable to substance abuse problems, according to “Substance Abuse and Mental Health Among Older Americans,” a 2005 report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Despite this, a growing body of research suggests misuse and other medication-related problems in older adults can be avoided. Focusing more research and screening on potential effects of certain drugs on older individuals and spreading awareness of these issues among the medical community, patients and caregivers are among recommendations from an expert panel assembled by the nonprofit Alliance for Aging Research.

Medication misuse

Unlike younger individuals who abuse substances to “get high,” substance abuse among older adults often is unintentional, stemming from misuse, which can be overuse, underuse or irregular use of a prescription or over-the-counter drug, notes the SAMHSA report. Unsafe combinations or


amounts of medications may be obtained by seeking prescriptions from multiple physicians (“doctor shopping”), by obtaining medications from family members or peers or by stockpiling medications throughout time, according to the report, “Prevention of Medication Misuse in Older Adults,” by the Older Americans Substance Abuse & Mental Health Technical Assistance Center. Ultimately, substance abuse can prolong other health problems, increase risk of disability, lower a person’s life span and increase risk of suicide. Erika Schmitz, substance abuse coordinator at Steamboat Mental Health, said the most prevalent substance abuse problems among older adults in Routt County involve alcohol, prescription drugs or a combination of the two. A common issue is the overuse of “as needed” medications that treat pain, insomnia, anxiety and other problems. Some older individuals inadvertently misuse or abuse these drugs because they did not receive enough information from their doctors about the increased likelihood of dependence, she said. Patients can be proactive by asking their doctors more questions about potential problems with certain medications. Consuming alcohol while taking certain medications can interfere with the metabolism of many drugs, rendering them ineffective or causing adverse

Older adults consume the highest amounts of prescription and over-the-counter drugs, making them at higher risk for medication-related problems. More awareness among patients and the medical community can help prevent misuse, abuse and adverse effects from medications.

drug reactions, according to the SAMHSA report.

Recovery In addition to chronic pain and health complications, loneliness, diminished mobility, lack of social support and even changes such as retirement can make older individuals more vulnerable to substance abuse problems. Exploring the initial problem that led to substance abuse and learning better ways to cope is part of the recovery process, she said. Depending on the type and extent of abuse, treatment may include detox or an inpatient program or various levels of outpatient treatment involving group or one-on-one therapy. Financial problems should not prevent a person from seeking help. While inpatient programs can be very expensive, outpatient programs are much more reasonable and can be adjusted in frequency to the patients’ needs. Some substance abuse programs and counselors will work on a sliding fee scale based on

a person’s income, and there are other resources to help patients pay for their treatment. Medicaid will pay for a limited number of outpatient services and detox for qualified individuals, and insurance companies slowly are beginning to join the bandwagon, Schmitz said. If a person is worried he or she is abusing medications or alcohol, they can call a certified addiction counselor or talk to any therapist — most are versed in substance abuse issues — to determine his or her next step. Joining an Alcoholics Anonymous or Al-Anon meeting or simply talking to a friend also can help a person gauge their problem. Schmitz often receives calls from people worried a family member has a substance abuse problem. Although she can provide advice about how to approach the issue, the best thing the concerned person can do is help themselves by finding a support group, such as AlAnon or talking to a counselor. “If you are making the call,

the problem exists on your level,” she said. “If (the person abusing substances) is not at a place to talk about it, they are not the ones needing help.” If a person is worried a friend or family member may endanger themselves or another person as a result of substance abuse, they can seek the help of a trained interventionist. Although individuals can be involuntarily committed to a treatment facility, the best outcome usually results from a person voluntarily seeking help, Schmitz said. Family and friends can support someone dealing with addiction or dependency by educating themselves and not being afraid to talk to the person about their needs. “That lets the person who’s dealing with addiction and recovery know that you actually care and want to be involved,” Schmitz said.

Hays said not only has Carrell — who began his second full year as the district’s school resource officer this year — worked to provide a law enforcement presence in Steamboat schools, but he has developed relationships with students. Cunningham said that was

one the district’s goals. She said if students have positive relationships with the city’s law enforcement officers, they will be more comfortable approaching police if they need help. Carrell’s interactions with students in various groups — including the high school’s leadership class, as a senior class co-sponsor and as an assistant soccer coach — have helped him develop those relationships. That, Carrell said, is one of the most important aspects of his job. He’s not just a cop, but a father and a husband, and the students understand that,

Carrell said. In his role, Carrell said he would love to continue strengthening the relationships between youths and law enforcement in the community. “I am very thankful this position exists and gives me an opportunity to work with people, the youth of the community,” he said. “They’re so much fun, innovative and creative. It’s awesome to work with people at that point in their lives when the sky is the limit.” — To reach Jack Weinstein, call 871-4203 or e-mail

Senior: Homecoming a big deal in Hayden Hayden continued from 3 ment and the Tiger Knowledge Bowl. Also included are the 6 p.m. volleyball game and 7:30 p.m. football game, both against Paonia. Homecoming week will culminate with the 10 p.m. dance. The seniors said homecoming week was important because it allowed them to work together. And it’s fun, they said. But senior Maddison Kopsa said homecoming week was all about school spirit. She said even though the classes compete, they still support one another because they’re all contributing to the week’s festivities. And it’s even bigger than that, she said.

“It brings out the whole community for the parade because everyone wants to see what the kids have been doing all week,” she said. Woodley said homecoming week is a pretty big deal in Hayden. She said the crowds at the volleyball and football games are larger, and seniors from the previous year return

home for some of the activities. With the exception of the Routt County Fair, some of the seniors said there were no other events as important. “It’s one of the biggest things in Hayden,” senior Skyler Cless said. — To reach Jack Weinstein, call 871-4203 or e-mail

Somewhere among the live music, dancing and reminiscing of another fire season gone by, Bureau of Land Management firefighters raised more than $5,000 in the name of a fallen comrade. On Saturday at the Old Town Pub in Steamboat Springs, about 50 firefighters, friends and family members gathered to celebrate the end of the fire season and raise money for the late Brett Stearns. The annual end-of-season party is typically a fundraiser for a national organization to help injured firefighters and

cared for him.” A raffle featured gift certificates and snowboard films, while a silent auction left one lucky participant with a new chain saw. The Craig Hotshots also screened a documentary on their fire season, which featured footage from Craig to California. Beckerman said the event raised more than double any other end-of-season fundraiser. Beckerman met Stearns when she was 17 and working in dispatch. She said the two were good friends in their fire careers and beyond and that a memorial scholarship was the best way to remember him.

A memorial scholarship was set up in Stearns’ name, in memory of his lifelong love of learning. Jenna Beckerman, a wildland firefighter and Stearns’ longtime friend, organized the event, which raised $5,039 for the scholarship fund. “I definitely think the community came out and supported the cause, and they did it for Brett,” Beckerman said. “People really showed how much they

Events fill beds in Vail Valley Despite economy, participatory functions bring in visitors THE VAIL DAILY


Rooms reservations are usually easy to get at The Charter at Beaver Creek this time of year. Except when the soccer kids come to town. The Charter is nearly full for the first weekend of October, and the staff is gearing up for a flood of soccer players and their families who’ve come to the valley for the annual Vail Valley Cup (formerly the Vail Challenge Cup). The tournament — which doubles as the main fundraiser for the Vail Valley Soccer Club — will bring nearly 80 teams of players between 11 and 14 years old this year. There are 20 players on a team. If every player brings one other person, that brings the weekend to more than 3,000 people who need meals, rooms, ice cream and Gatorade. Even if teams pack coolers full of snacks and drinks, that many people in the valley for a weekend still will need a lot of food and lodging. “We always love having the soccer kids,” said Jean Alexander, sales and marketing director for The Resort Company, which operates The Charter, as well as the Lion Square Lodge and the Montaneros Lodge in Vail. Alexander added those lodges also welcome kids for a threeweekend hockey tournament in November.

Youth and adult sports tournaments increasingly are seen as a way to bring people to resorts looking to fill rooms during their off-seasons. Chris Romer, sales and marketing director of the Vail Valley Partnership, said tournaments such as the Vail Valley Cup are a perfect example of the kind of events the valley would like to attract. They’re also great examples to show tournament organizers shopping for venues. “We’ve got a few signature events — the soccer tournament, the (Vail Lacrosse Shootout) and a three-on-three soccer tournament in August — that we use as part of our pitch,” Romer said. “We can show people we have the infrastructure and the facilities to put on a great event.” Romer said the tournament business is one of the fastestgrowing parts of the tourism industry. He’s attended a few trade shows dedicated to tournaments during the past 18 months or so. Some of that work has already paid off. An “Irish Hurling” festival originally set was to land in Vail this year, but it has been put off until Memorial Day of next year.

times. But, Romer said, tournaments also are a good way to introduce people to what the Vail Valley has to offer. One way is with rates. “I looked at some of the rates people can get this year and said ‘You can stay in Cordillera for that much?’ — I should book for the weekend, too,” Vail Valley Cup tournament organizer Jodi Teague said. And, Alexander said, it’s better in September and October to have a room rented at a deep discount than to let it sit idle. Alexander said between rates and amenities — particularly kid-friendly swimming pools — The Resort Company’s hotels attract families that come back year after year for the Vail Valley Cup.

State to keep stimulus signs Highway notifications will remain despite GOP complaints Kristen Wyatt



Rolling your eyes at the large highway signs promoting Colorado’s stimulus spending “Putting America To Work” at road construction sites? State highway officials insist the promotional signs are required and will stay up — despite complaints from Republicans that the signs amount to political boosterism for a stimulus spending package driven by ruling Democrats in Washington. There are dozens of the signs on road construction projects across the state saying the projects are funded by the mammoth $787 billion federal stimulus package. Mediumsized signs cost about $750 to $1,250, with large signs costing as much as $2,000. The Colorado Department of Transportation doesn’t have

an exact figure for how much stimulus money has been spent on the signs. That’s because the signs are a mandatory part of the overall road bids and not separated from other required signs on construction projects. CDOT spokeswoman Stacey Stegman said federal highways authorities “strongly encouraged” the signs, so state guidelines include them. Colorado has 37 stimulusfunded roads projects under construction or soon to be under construction, with most projects having two signs, one in each direction. If each project used two mediumsized signs, taxpayers will have spent roughly $55,000 for the Colorado signs. It’s a small expense compared to the $191 million in stimulus money spent on road and bridge projects so far in Colorado. But some critics of the stimulus package call the stimulus signs

a thinly veiled advertisement for the spending. “The fact is, those signs have little utility other than advertising for politicians at taxpayer’s expense,” said Rep. Mike Coffman, a Republican from a suburban Denver district. Coffman met earlier this month with federal accounting authorities in Denver about the signs and learned they can cost as much as $2,000. “There are countless more important things that money could be used for, and it’s a slap in the face to the American people,” Coffman said about the signs. The signs also raised the ire of Republican Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire, who tried and failed this month to ban the use of stimulus money on the signs. Last week Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Mont., criticized the signs on the House floor, calling them “the worst of political credittaking.”

monster, and Jeremiah was a victim.” Berry, who cried throughout his sentencing hearing, had been charged with second-degree murder for the February 2008 death of his father, 42-yearold Jack Berry. Jeremiah Berry had faced 48 years in prison if convicted of that charge in Montezuma County. He previously had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, but doctors concluded during two mental evaluations that he was competent to stand trial. Jeremiah Berry shot his father in the head, and then dismembered his corpse to feed parts of it to coyotes, according to court documents. Authorities

said they also found some of Jack Berry’s body parts encased in a bucket with concrete. Jeremiah Berry told police he killed his father after his father raped him. He said his father told him that day he had been told by God his son needed a sex change to become his wife. District Attorney Jim Wilson said the plea agreement is an attempt to give Berry “what he needs to be a constructive member of society.” “He is a victim just like he is a defendant. He’s a troubled young man,” Wilson said. Berry’s sentence also calls for 10 years of intense supervised probation after his release.

Jeremiah Raymond Berry plead guilty to manslaughter and menacing Friday during an emotional court hearing in which family members and attorneys described him as a troubled young man who was the victim of years of abuse. “Jeremiah stopped a cycle of abuse.

Man dies in Greeley house fire THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Authorities are investigating a Greeley house fire that left one man dead and caused $50,000 in damage. Fire officials said there are no signs that the fire Friday night was started intentionally, but they have not determined what caused it. The man has yet to be identified. Neighbors told The Greeley Tribune the victim used a wheelchair and had lived in the house with his brother for 20 years. The victim’s brother was not at the house at the time of the fire. Investigators were at the house Saturday trying to figure out how the fire began.

Woman shot and killed in car in Colorado Springs COLORADO SPRINGS

Police say a 35-year-old woman was shot to death in a car at a Colorado Springs apartment complex. Colorado Springs police have not released the name of the woman, but they said they are looking for two men to question them about the shooting. It happened at about

1:30 a.m Sunday at the parking lot of the Shannon Glen Apartments in southeastern Colorado Springs. The woman was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead. Additional details about the shooting were not immediately available. Police officials said the men they are looking for are driving a newer-model red or orange Jeep Cherokee. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Colorado Springs police at 719-444-7000.

Indy 500 winner Lazier to run for town council VAIL

Indianapolis 500 winner and lifelong Vail resident Buddy Lazier says he will run for a seat on the town’s council. Lazier says he is running for one of four open seats because he loves Vail and because he is familiar with the issues affecting the town. The 41-year-old Vail native is raising his two children in the town where he grew up.

���� � � � �

Lazier won the Indianapolis 500 in 1996. He now races part time and plans to continue but said he’s “willing and able to put in the heavy hours” with the town council. The election will be held Nov. 3. Vail Town Clerk Lorelei Donaldson said she received Lazier’s nominating petition Friday.

ICE office is expected to open next year in Greeley GREELEY

An Immigration and Customs and Enforcement office that has been criticized by Latino activists is expected to open in mid-January. The office was first proposed in 2005 and was expected to open this fall but federal officials temporarily halted work on the project in the spring because of funding problems. ICE agents at the Greeley office will handle work enforcement investigations, as well as gang activity, money laundering, and smuggling. The idea for the office came from Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate.

Big job losses and a spike in early retirement claims from laid-off seniors will force Social Security to pay out more in benefits than it collects in taxes the next two years, the first time that’s happened since the 1980s. The deficits — $10 billion in 2010 and $9 billion in 2011 — won’t affect payments to retirees because Social Security has accumulated surpluses from previous years totaling $2.5 trillion. But they will add to the overall federal deficit. Applications for retirement benefits are 23 percent higher than last year, while disability claims have increased by about 20 percent. Social Security officials had expected applications to increase from the growing number of baby boomers reaching retirement, but they didn’t expect the increase to be so large. What happened?

Obama: More school needed

President says 21st century requires more classroom time WASHINGTON

Students beware: The summer vacation you just enjoyed could be sharply curtailed if President Barack Obama gets his way. Obama says American kids spend too little time in school, putting them at a disadvantage with other students around the globe. “Now, I know longer school days and school years are not wildly popular ideas,” the president said earlier this year. “Not with Malia and Sasha, not in my family, and probably not in

yours. But the challenges of a new century demand more time in the classroom.” The president, who has a sixth-grader and a third-grader, wants schools to add time to classes, to stay open late and to let kids in on weekends so they have a safe place to go. “Our school calendar is based upon the agrarian economy, and not too many of our kids are working the fields today,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said in a recent interview. Fifth-grader Nakany Camara is of two minds. She likes the four-week summer program

at her school, Brookhaven Elementary School in Rockville, Md. Nakany enjoys seeing her friends there and thinks summer school helped boost her grades from two C’s to the honor roll. But she doesn’t want a longer school day. “I would walk straight out the door,” she said. Domonique Toombs felt the same way when she learned she would stay for an extra three hours each day in sixth grade at Boston’s Clarence R. Edwards Middle School. “I was like, ‘Wow, are you serious?”’ she said. “That’s three more hours I won’t be able to chill with my friends after school.”

Clinton speaks of right-wing conspiracy THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Bill Clinton says a vast, rightwing conspiracy that once targeted him is now focusing on President Barack Obama. The ex-president made the comment in a television interview when he was asked about one of the signature moments of the Monica Lewinsky affair

Bill Clinton was asked on NBC’s “Meet the Press” whether the conspiracy is still there. He replied: “You bet. Sure it is. It’s not as strong as it was because America has changed demographically. But it’s as virulent as it was.” Clinton said that this time around, the focus is on Obama and “their agenda seems to be wanting him to fail.”

more than a decade ago. Back then, first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton used the term “vast, right-wing conspiracy” to Clinton describe how her husband’s political enemies were out to destroy his presidency.

Iran test fires missiles

All tech Glass services

Under pressure for nukes, Tehran shows it’s prepared to fight TEHRAN



879-7962 •

Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard said it successfully test-fired short-range missiles Sunday in drills meant to show Tehran is prepared to crush any military threat from another country. The display of force comes days after the U.S. and its allies warned Iran about a newly revealed nuclear facility it was constructing secretly. Gen. Hossein Salami, leader of the Revolutionary Guard Air Force, said Iran had perfected its short range missiles to make them more accurate in tactical

battlefield situations and defend the country from any attacks. “We are going to respond to any military action in a crushing manner, and it doesn’t make any difference which country or regime has launched the aggression,” state media quoted Salami as saying. He said the missiles successfully hit their targets. The tests came two days after the U.S. and its allies disclosed that Iran had been secretly developing a previously unknown underground uranium enrichment facility and warned the country it must open the nuclear site to international inspection or face harsher international sanctions. The missiles tested weren’t the kind that can carry a nuclear warhead. Iran is developing such ballistic missiles, but U.S. officials think that effort has been slowed. But the timing of the missile tests has been interpreted widely as an Iranian show of force in the face of the international storm of criticism about the secret facility. Tehran carried out the missile tests now “to show some muscle, show some strength, and say the game is not over for Iran yet,” said Alex Vatanka, a senior Middle East analyst at IHS Jane’s. He noted that Iran will be meeting with the Western powers in Geneva next week. “They felt going into these meetings next week that they needed to have something else to bolster their position, and I

think that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard showing a bit of military muscle here is part of that,” he said. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she doesn’t think Iran can convince the U.S. and other world powers at the upcoming meeting that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, putting Tehran on a course for tougher economic penalties beyond the current “leaky sanctions.” The Iranians must “present convincing evidence as to the purpose of their nuclear program. We don’t believe that they can present convincing evidence, that it’s only for peaceful purposes, but we are going to put them to the test,” Clinton told CBS’ “Face the Nation.” Defense Secretary Robert Gates argued that pressuring Tehran economically and diplomatically would have a better chance of changing the Tehran government’s policies than military strikes against the nuclear site. “The reality is, there is no military option that does anything more than buy time,” he told CNN’s “State of the Union” in an interview broadcast Sunday. The nuclear site was revealed in the arid mountains near the holy city of Qom and is thought to be inside a heavily guarded, underground facility belonging to the Revolutionary Guard, according to a document sent by President Barack Obama’s administration to lawmakers.

Broncos move to 3-0 after crushing Raiders


Mental game carries Steamboat golfers


olf, in its purest form, might be the most character-defining sport. It’s a gentlemen’s game where players are expected to keep their own score, not cheat and make sure their playing partners don’t cheat. But the great thing about golf is that the difference between being a great golfer and a run-of-the-mill hack is simply 5 inches. I’m talking about the 5 inches between a golfer’s ears. That short distance can make the difference between a good round and a horrible one. On Tuesday, those 5 inches defined the season’s fate of Steamboat Springs High School golfers Kaelen Gunderson, Scott Ptach and Alan Capistron. Although Steamboat finished in second place in the regional tournament at Haymaker Golf Course and didn’t technically qualify for the state tournament as a team, the growth and maturity of Steamboat’s three golfers shined through. All three finished in the top 12 and qualified for the Oct. 5 and 6 state golf tournament at Highlands Ranch Golf Club in Littleton. But the way the three did it made it all the more impressive. Each encountered points in Tuesday’s round where things could have done a 180-degree turn. They certainly did for some of the tournament’s other players, who saw one bad hole destroy their psyches and their rounds. But for Steamboat, one bad hole — or even a string of them — was just a minor blip in the grand scheme of things. Battling weather more suited for hot chocolate and a fireplace than 18 holes of linksstyle golf, each Sailor proved to manage his nerves better than most high schoolers. See Graham, page 24

Chris Zirkle, a Hayden High School junior who runs for the Moffat County High School cross-country team, was all alone as he reached the finish line Saturday at Loudy-Simpson Park. Zirkle finished first with a time of 16:54.

Zirkle hits stride Hayden junior sets pace for Moffat County cross-country team Joel Reichenberger PILOT & TODAY STAFF


As it turns out, a top-tier high school cross-country team is built much the same way other successful sports teams are constructed. Moffat County High School cross-country coach Todd Trapp said he builds his team by encouraging his varsity athletes and challenging his junior varsity runners. He

keeps a close eye on the minor leagues — the middle school — and tries to keep athletes training through the spring and summer. And sometimes, someone trades you a young Brett Favre for next to nothing, or you take Tom Brady 199th in the draft or Albert Pujols 409th. Hayden High School junior Chris Zirkle bears little in common with Favre, Brady or Pujols, and he certainly can’t yet match their championship

résumés. But he is the fastest boy on the Moffat County cross-country team, which is one of the best Class 4A teams in the state. And as far as the Bulldogs are concerned, Zirkle fell out of thin air.

Fitting in Zirkle’s most recent triumph came Saturday when he bested all comers at the Bulldogs’ See Zirkle, page 25

Kyle Orton, Josh McDaniels and a newfound dominant defense have quieted all the talk of offseason dysfunction in Denver with a 3-0 start. Orton threw a touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall, the defense kept a second SUNDAY’S straight opponent GAME: out of the end zone Broncos 23 and the Broncos Raiders 3 overwhelmed the Oakland Raiders, 23-3, on Sunday. “We’re happy with where we’re at, 3-0,” Orton said. “We’ve been improving every single week.” The performance to start the season is a far cry from the offseason. McDaniels caused an immediate stir when he was hired to replace the fired Mike Shanahan as coach in Denver last offseason. He alienated Pro Bowl quarterback Jay Cutler before trading him to Chicago for Orton, then suspended Marshall in the preseason. But once the season started, things couldn’t have gone much better for the Broncos. They capitalized on a lucky bounce to win the opener at Cincinnati and followed that with convincing wins against Cleveland and Oakland (1-2). “There’s no vindication because there’s nothing to be vindicated about,” McDaniels said. The schedule gets considerably tougher starting next week against Dallas, but the Broncos have to be pleased with where they stand now. Rookie Knowshon Moreno ran for 90 yards and a score and Correll Buckhalter added 108 yards on 14 carries for the Broncos. Matt Prater added three field goals as Denver won its AFC West opener for a 10th straight year.

Barmes’ catch saves game Rockies hold on to beat Cardinals, 4-3, keep wild-card lead Pat Graham




Clint Barmes had the wind knocked out of him and a big welt on his forehead. A small price to pay for a game-saving catch in the middle of a tight playoff race. C o l o r a d o ’s second baseman made a diving SUNDAY’S grab in shalGAME: low right field to Rockies 4 start a game-endCardinals 3 ing double play, preserving a 4-3 victory against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday that kept the Rockies 2 1/2 games ahead of the surging Atlanta Braves in

the National League wild-card race. “There’s been pitches of the year, innings of the year — that’s the defensive play of the year,” Colorado manager Jim Tracy said. With runners on first and third and one out, Barmes sprinted into the outfield on Ryan Ludwick’s flair. He dove headfirst for the ball, snaring it and firing to first base to double up Albert Pujols, who ran on contact. Given the circumstances, Barmes doesn’t think he’s ever made a more important catch. The welt on his head? He didn’t even know it was there.

His wound could become as memorable as Matt Holliday scraping up his chin sliding into home plate during a win against San Diego in the NL wild-card tiebreaker in 2007. But Colorado has to make it to the postseason first. The Braves are charging hard, applying the pressure. Colorado’s victory also kept the Los Angeles Dodgers’ magic number at two for clinching the NL West title. The Rockies are going all out to get in. That’s why Huston Street was called on for his first six-out save since Aug. 2, 2006, with Oakland. He allowed leadoff hits in the eighth and ninth, but worked his way out of it.

Perseverance is why Sailors are a threat Graham continued from 23


Take Gunderson, who came into the tournament as one of the favorites to win. After shooting even on the front nine, Gunderson missed a 2-foot putt on No. 10 for par and flubbed a chip into the hazard after a perfect drive on 11. He went on to make double-bogey there and put one in the hazard on the next hole and made another bogey. Gunderson, despite the bad run, finished with a 76. Ptach battled a string of four bogeys in a row on the back nine, before getting things on

track with a birdie on No. 17. He shot 78. Capistron was playing well on the back nine before he got to No. 16. He hit his drive left, his approach long and left, and encountered a downhill pitch with little green to work with. After he mishit his first chip, he left himself 15 feet for bogey. He canned it, made an 8-footer on 17 for par and went on to shoot 79. One shot worse and he finds himself in a playoff for a berth to the state tournament. That perseverance is why Steamboat is a threat come the state tournament. Each of the three players could have let bad

holes derail his round. Heck, guys they were playing with let a few mental mistakes ruin rounds and chances of qualifying for state. But Steamboat’s 5 inches were much better than those of any other teams. So when the Sailors take to Littleton in a week, they’ll be in the hunt. They won’t crumble under the pressure, and they won’t let a few bad holes ruin the their tournaments. They’ll take those 5 inches between their ears and use it to their advantage. — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail

Phil wins title, Tiger takes cup Mickelson earns Tour Championship as Woods gets FedEx Cup

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


Phil Mickelson had the smaller check and felt like the biggest winner. Tiger Woods was congratulated after he finished second in the Tour Championship. Sunday was the ninth time that golf’s two biggest stars finished 1-2 in a tournament. Never have they shared the spotlight, each going home with a trophy that was meaningful in its own way. Mickelson capped off a tumultuous summer at home with a rally at East Lake, closing with a 5-under 65 to earn a three-shot victory, his first since his wife and mother were diagnosed with breast cancer. Woods made two late birdies, not enough to put any heat

on Mickelson, but to secure the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus. It finished a season in which he won six times and was no worse than second in nine of his 17 tournaments. “I like the way today went,” Mickelson said. “I was two back of him, I beat him by three. He gets the $10 million check, and I get $1 million. I’ve got no problem with that. I just love holding this finally.” He motioned toward the crystal Tour Championship trophy, which has not belonged to him since he won in 2000 at East Lake by again rallying in the final round to beat Woods. Mickelson finished at 9-under 271 and earned $1.35 million. He also collected $3 million for

being second in the FedEx Cup. It was his third victory of the year, the 37th of his career and it pushed him back to No. 2 in the world ranking. “It means a lot to finish the year off on such a good note,” Mickelson said. “We’ve been through a lot, and I’m very proud of my wife and my mom on the fight that they’ve been through. We’re in good shape. Although day-to-day is tough, and it’s not easy for them, we’re fortunate that our long-term outlook is good.”

Zirkle made change from football to running Zirkle continued from 23 only home cross-country meet, winning the 5-kilometer boys race in 16 minutes, 54 seconds. That kind of athletic success is a far cry from what Zirkle first experienced in high school. He started out on the Hayden football team but was just another number on the sidelines, a skinny freshman trying not to drown in an orange-andblack jersey. “I got pushed around a lot because I was so small,” Zirkle said. “I thought, ‘Man, I don’t know if football is going to work out.’” It didn’t, but Zirkle found inspiration from his sister, Laura. She already was regularly making the trip to Craig from Hayden to run with Trapp and the Bulldogs. She finished four years on the team and graduated from Hayden in May. Chris Zirkle began training in Moffat County’s offseason program and quickly established himself as one of the top threats on a perennially fast team. “You could tell he was a runner,” Trapp said. “He ran with us a few times that summer, then he went to our camp in Grand Lake with us. Once we started the season, it became apparent he’d probably be our best runner.” He was. Zirkle led the team all season long — all the way to a second-place finish in the regional and an appearance at the state meet.

Catching up Despite almost immediate success, it didn’t all come easy for Zirkle. He had already — and

still does — compete with the Hayden track team, so he certainly wasn’t new to racing. Still, cross-country is a different animal than track, and it took some adjusting to. Even by the end of his sophomore season, his first with the Moffat County team, Zirkle was still getting used to being at the front of the race, to the mass of competitors at larger meets and to the added dimension of working as a part of a team. He finished 49th in his first trip to the state meet. It was far from what he’d imagined possible while still snapping on a chinstrap a year before but also not what he’d been hoping for at the start of the race. “After that state meet, I realized I have to stop running like an idiot,” he said. “I realized I had to starting hanging on to someone, stop taking off so fast and stuff. So I started taking it a little slower at the first race this year and realized that worked for me.” It’s hasn’t only worked out well for Zirkle, it’s worked out well for the whole team. Moffat County easily won Saturday’s meet, with teammates Alfredo Lebron and Alex McCoy finishing second and third, respectively. The team already has earned second-place finishes among 4A teams at two of the largest meets in which it has competed, and the Bulldogs are slotted second in the class’s coaches poll. That’s not all because of Zirkle, of course. Moffat County has a strong cross-country tradition and hasn’t missed qualifying for state since Trapp started eight years ago. “We have a very strong team

this year, and they all push each other,” Trapp said. They all are feeding off one another, so he’s helping push them, and they’re helping him.”

Aiming high Trapp is cautiously optimistic about just how good his team can get. “We can get into the top four at state if everything goes right and we stay healthy,” he said. When pressed, he opened up. “If we have a great day, maybe some teams don’t run quite as well; we might have a chance to win a state title,” he said. “But that means everything has to go great, we have to continue improving and every kid has to keep improving.” Zirkle admits he still has work to do. He’s been adding one or two extra runs every week, logging miles early in the morning before he attends class in Hayden. He returns home at noon and the second half of his day is spent being home schooled. Then he drives the 20 minutes to Craig. “We have to keep working hard in practice, and we have to get our pack a little closer together,” he said. “Then I think we have a shot.” Trapp has seen all the progress with his team and with Zirkle. “If Chris has a great day, keeps improving, he could be in the top 10 this year,” he said. “If he improves as much between his junior year and his senior year as did between his sophomore and junior years, anything could happen.” — To reach Joel Reichenberger, call 871-4253 or e-mail

Johnson wins at 2nd Chase race

������ ����������

Dan Gelston









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


Jimmie Johnson dominated again in winning a crucial Chase race. It’s become about as routine this time of year on the sports calendar as the start of the NFL season or the baseball playoff stretch drive. If he keeps driving like this, NASCAR can expect another regular fixture in November: Johnson hoisting the series trophy and celebrating a championship. Johnson thumped the competition in the second Chase for the championship race, sweeping the season races at Dover International Speedway to accelerate his bid for an unprecedented fourth straight Sprint Cup title.

“I’m pretty sure that dude is Superman,” runner-up Mark Martin said. He was pretty super on the concrete in the No. 48 Chevrolet. If three championships weren’t enough to intimidate the rest of the Chase field, the way he won Sunday should send another message: He’s just really getting going on a fourth. “As far as sending a message, I hope it does,” Johnson said. “I hope people are worried.” Johnson cut Martin’s points lead with the victory — his fourth of the year and 44th overall — in the second of 10 races in the Chase for the championship. “I’ve seen that dude up close, and I see why he’s so successful,”

said Martin, Johnson’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate. “He works harder at it than anybody else, I think, on the circuit.” No winner of the second Dover race has ever gone on to win the Cup championship. If any driver can reverse that trend, it’s Johnson. Much as he did in May, Johnson’s No. 48 Chevrolet was out in front for the majority of the 400-mile race. “I certainly hope that our performance today scares some people and affects them in a way that benefits us,” Johnson said. Chase drivers took nine of the first 11 spots. Martin followed last week’s win at New Hampshire with a second-place finish. Juan Pablo Montoya was fourth and Kurt Busch fifth. Matt Kenseth was the highest non-Chase driver at third.
