Vehicles clog the westbound lane of U.S. Highway 40 during Tuesday’s after-work rush. Work on U.S. 40 has tied up traffic, causing delays for emergency responders and everyone else in town.

With traffic backed up for blocks during rush hour near the 13th Street construction zone this week, Routt County emergency responders quickly realized they need a plan to get through the traffic tangle. Mel Stewart, acting fire chief for Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue, said he is talking with construction coordinators to get continuous updates and move emergency workers through the traffic as quickly as possible. “I’ve driven through there twice today on routine errands and it’s actually not bad during the day,” he said Wednesday. “Our concern, which I think everybody’s kind of concerned about, is between 4 and 6 (p.m.) when it’s time to go home.” Initial reports from the Colorado Department of Transportation stated that delays of about 10 minutes could be expected, but on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, those delays lasted much longer. CDOT spokeswoman Nancy Shanks said that construction crews worked Wednesday to improve traffic flow and by Wednesday evening, the traffic flow was changed. Both directions of travel initially were reduced to one lane, but Shanks said crews on Wednesday reopened westbound lanes and a left-turn lane onto 13th Street. “That should help a lot, espeSee Traffic, back page

City plans to extend Core Trail 3,700-foot project slated for Steamboat’s south side Tom Ross

City Open Space Supervisor Craig Robinson is looking for an aggressive contractor to build the newest extension of the Yampa River Core Trail, while hoping for the benign November construction weather Steamboat Springs saw in 2007 and 2008. The city is advertising for bids to build 3,200 linear feet of 10-foot-wide concrete trail and 500 feet of soft-surface trail, much of it running along the Yampa River on Steamboat’s south side. “In a perfect world, we’d be pouring concrete even this fall,” Robinson said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens. But it will depend upon the contractor’s plan of attack and the weather. We’re shooting to have it done by the beginning of June

next year.” The urgency behind the completion date is because of the need to meet the terms of a grant from Great Outdoors Colorado. There was hope of beginning the construction in the heart of summer, but the project had to wait until a second grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation came through, Robinson said. The combined grants total $47,000. Robinson is anticipating a mandatory pre-bid conference for contractors Oct. 13 at the consulting engineer’s office. The bid opening will take place Oct. 19. Bid packets may be picked up at City Hall on 10th Street. Construction would begin just upstream from the parking lot at River Creek Park, near the stoplight at U.S. Highway 40 and Walton Creek Road, where

an existing pedestrian bridge crosses Walton Creek. A soft-surface trail exists on the south side of the pedestrian bridge. It runs across an undeveloped commercial lot and then through open space in front of the South Side Station convenience store and, finally, the U.S. Forest Service headquarters. The trail easement makes a 90-degree turn before it reaches the parking lot of the Steamboat Hotel — formerly Super 8 — and leads west through a lightly used portion of the parking lot at Walton Pond Apartments before reaching the river. The existing trail turns right again and heads downstream, but Robinson said the new extension will make a left turn at that point and roughly paralSee Core Trail, page 12

Routt County Clerk and Recorder Kay Weinland wants voters to keep a number of dates in mind this election season — but Election Day itself isn’t one of the most important. There will be no polls, no booths and no voting machines this year. The election will be conducted with mail ballots only, and Election Day proper is a mere deadline to return those ballots. While this is the first time Routt County has conducted a mail-only election, Weinland said Wednesday that she is comfortable that the word has gotten out. Weinland said about 70 percent of Routt County voters are already signed up to permanently receive mail-in ballots. “That tells me there’s a real strong preference for that method of voting,” she said. Monday is the last day to register to vote, and it is also the last day for voters to update their addresses — if the address has changed — to ensure that they will receive a

Students’ health could be getting better at Steamboat Springs Middle School. A day after absentee numbers hit 151 — reaching a 30 percent threshold to begin discussions of closing the school — absentee numbers dipped to 131 students Wednesday. That represents 26 percent of the middle school’s student body and the least number of students missing this week, but only two fewer than were absent Monday. Steamboat Springs School District Superintendent Shalee Cunningham said Friday’s scheduled meeting with the countywide swine flu group, which began meeting last spring, was canceled. She said Hayden Superintendent Greg Rockhold and South Routt Superintendent Scott Mader couldn’t attend. But Cunningham added that she will meet Friday with Dot Haberlan, of the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association, and Jim Johnsen, emergency preparedness and

Steamboat 700 still confident Project 1 vote away from defeat in City Council on Tuesday Brandon Gee



Steamboat 700 came within one vote of defeat Tuesday, but Principal and Project Manager Danny Mulcahy said he was encouraged by the outcome and remains confident moving forward. If Tuesday’s Steamboat Springs City Council meeting is any indication, final consideration of the proposed annexation Oct. 13 should be an energetic affair. Steamboat 700 advances to that date after a 4-3

vote that followed a tense and highly attended meeting. Steamboat 700 is a 487-acre project that proposes 2,000 homes and 380,000 square feet of commercial space to be built in 20 to 30 years, on a site just outside the western city limits. Steamboat 700 is within the boundaries of the West of Steamboat Springs Area Plan, which contemplates growth and annexation to help accomplish a number of community goals, principally affordable housing. Steamboat 700 attorney Bob Weiss said the development has spent three years and $5 million

Hayden water rates could increase Blythe Terrell



Water users in Hayden will pay more if the Hayden Town Council approves a base rate increase this month. The council is scheduled to hear the first reading of an ordinance to raise rates at its meeting tonight. If council members move it to a second reading and approve it, residents would pay $3.05 more a month in their base rate, which is separate from the amount they pay for usage. Seniors would pay $1.83 more a month. That would put standard base rates at $19 a month

and senior base rates at $11.40 a month, a 19 percent increase. Hayden’s enterprise fund pays for water and sewer with money it collects for the services. The fund is in the red because fewer new projects are coming on line and tapping in and because wet weather has cut water use, Town Manager Russ Martin said. “This is one that’s a partial answer,” Martin said. “We may have to increase it again in the future, but we don’t want to have a huge increase.” Even with a base rate increase, Martin said he expects the town to need to transfer $45,000 from the general fund to the enterprise

Ski and snowboard addicts can get a fix of the winter this weekend with screenings of two new snow sports films. “Re:Session,” the 2009 ski and snowboard movie from Teton Gravity Research, plays at 7 p.m. Friday at the Sheraton Steamboat Resort ballroom. “The Freeheel Life,” a montage movie by Telemark Skier Magazine Editor Josh Madsen, plays at 7 p.m. Sunday in Olympian Hall at Howelsen Hill Lodge. This is the fourth year a Teton Gravity Research screening has been included in the lineup for the Steamboat Mountain Film Festival, festival organizer Michael Martin said. The “Re: Session” screening is the first event of the seventh annual festival, which continues Oct. 23 and 24. “They’re a great kickoff to the festival and a great kickoff to the season, because it’s skiing and snowboarding so it attracts a lot of skiers and snowboarders. It’s typically the local favorite as far as the big production houses,” Martin said about the TGR films. Chris Dickey, spokesperson for “Re:Session,” said the film stands out from most other ski

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

Where did ‘we’ go? Thomas L. Friedman THE NEW YORK TIMES

I hate to write about this, but I actually have been to this play before and it is really disturbing. I was in Israel interviewing Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin just before he was assassinated in 1995. We had a beer in his office. He needed one. I remember the ugly mood in Israel then — a mood in which extreme right-wing settlers and politicians were doing all they could to delegitimize Friedman Rabin, who was committed to trading land for peace as part of the Oslo accords. They questioned his authority. They accused him of treason. They created pictures depicting him as a Nazi SS officer, and they shouted death threats at rallies. His political opponents winked at it all.

And in so doing, they created a poisonous political environment that was interpreted by one right-wing Jewish settler as a license to kill Rabin — he must have heard, “God will be on your side” — and so he did so. Others already have remarked on this analogy, but I want to add my voice because the parallels to Israel then and America today turn my stomach: I have no problem with any of the substantive criticism of President Barack Obama from the right or left. But something very dangerous is happening. Criticism from the far right has begun tipping over into delegitimation and creating the same kind of climate here that existed in Israel on the eve of the Rabin assassination. What kind of madness is it that someone would create a poll on Facebook asking respondents, “Should Obama be killed?” The choices were: “No, Maybe, Yes and Yes if he cuts my

health care.” The Secret Service is now investigating. I hope they put the jerk in jail and throw away the key because this is exactly what was being done to Rabin. Even if you are not worried that someone might draw from these vitriolic attacks a license to try to hurt the president, you have to be worried about what is happening to American politics more broadly. Our leaders, even the president, can no longer utter the word “we” with a straight face. There is no more “we” in American politics at a time when “we” have these huge problems — the deficit, the recession, health care, climate change and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — that “we” can only manage, let alone fix, if there is a collective “we” at work. Sometimes I wonder whether George H.W. Bush, president “41,” will be See Friedman, page 9

A pragmatic look at Obama’s pragmatism Jonah Goldberg


“When John McCain said we could just ‘muddle through’ in Afghanistan, I argued for more resources and more troops to finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11 and made clear that we must take out Osama bin Laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights,” Barack Obama thundered as he accepted the Democratic nomination for president in Denver last year. “John Goldberg McCain likes to say that he’ll follow bin Laden to the gates of Hell. But he won’t even go to the cave where he lives.” It was a shabby bit of rhetoric, even for a campaign. Insinuating that McCain, of all people, didn’t have the


intestinal fortitude to take the fight to bin Laden was not only absurd on its face, it smacked of overcompensation coming from the former community organizer whose greatest foreign policy passion prior to his presidential bid had been nuclear disarmament. But the line did what it needed to do: communicate that Obama had the sort of true grit required to fight the good, i.e. popular, war in Afghanistan. That war may or may not be good anymore, but it is most certainly not popular. And so what was for Obama a “war of necessity” has become a de facto war of choice. At least that’s the sense one gets as the president suddenly is searching for a politically palatable strategy other than the one he announced months ago. Now, I think it would amount to breathtaking cynicism and, far worse, bad policy for Obama to abandon Afghanistan to the Taliban and alQaida. That goes for the “Biden plan,”

which would amount to little better than a public relations effort whereby we would score regular symbolic victories while steadily losing the war. But if it’s sincere, I welcome Obama’s willingness to rethink his position on an issue in which he invested so much political capital and machismo. Obama came into office swearing he was a pragmatist who would support any approach that worked. He liked to invoke Franklin Roosevelt as his lodestar, for Roosevelt championed “bold, persistent experimentation.” Discussing the economy, Obama told “60 Minutes”: “What you see in FDR that I hope my team can emulate is not always getting it right but projecting a sense of confidence and a willingness to try things and experiment in order to get people working again.” That spirit has been woefully lackSee Goldberg, page 9 Bruce Tinsley allows readers to submit comments on stories, to create their own blogs and to participate in our Reader Forum.

battle of tactics that overwhelm strategic thinking; and a blogosphere that at its best enriches our debates, adding new checks on the establishment, and at its worst coarsens our debates to a whole new level, giving a new power to anonymous slanderers to send lies around the world. Finally, on top of it all, we now have a permanent presidential campaign that encourages all partisanship, all the time among our leading politicians. I would argue that together these changes add up to a difference of degree that is a difference in kind — a different kind of American political scene that makes me wonder whether we can seriously discuss serious issues any longer and make decisions on the basis of the national interest. We can’t change this overnight, but what we can change, and must change, is people crossing the line between criticizing the president and tacitly encouraging the unthinkable and the unforgivable.

Reality may be shifting Obama’s ideals Goldberg continued from 8 ing in Obama’s presidency so far. During the campaign, Obama’s top domestic priorities were reform of health care, education and energy. When an economic crisis that is — according to Obama, at least — second only to the Great Depression exploded in front of him, Obama the alleged pragmatist concluded that, mirabile dictu, his year-old agenda was the perfect solution. Obama insisted that as president of both “red” and “blue” America, he was open to ideas from both sides of the aisle. But his stimulus bill was as partisan and one-sided as Democrats claimed George W. Bush’s tax cuts were. At least Bush’s tax cuts actually cut taxes. It remains to be seen whether Obama’s stimulus

stimulated anything at all. After ending the war in Iraq and taking the fight to bin Laden’s cave, direct engagement with the Iranian regime was candidate Obama’s greatest foreign policy priority. Partly this stemmed from the fact that he accidentally suggested in a debate that he would meet with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad without preconditions. Rather than admit he was wrong, Obama stuck to his idee fixe throughout the campaign. Since being elected, it seems that his off-the-cuff slipup wasn’t that off the cuff. Despite an ever-increasing number of lies, subterfuges and outrages on the part of the Iranians, the Obama administration has seemed convinced that they can be talked into compliance with the so-called international community.

But the optimist can look at Obama’s newfound open-mindedness on Afghanistan and his potential orchestration of international sanctions against Iran as proof that reality is prying him from his ideological cocoon. Alas, there’s another way of reading recent events. Critics always claimed that Obama was a very left-wing fellow who was never the centrist he claimed to be. The pessimist might suspect that Obama’s newfound pragmatism only manifests itself when it permits him to abandon the centrist positions that may have helped him get elected but are of no use to him politically anymore. What seemed like principled centrism in 2008 might simply be exposed as left-wing expediency in 2009. Here’s hoping the optimists are right.

remembered as our last “legitimate” president. The right impeached Bill Clinton and hounded him from Day 1 with the bogus Whitewater “scandal.” George W. Bush was elected under a cloud because of the Florida voting mess, and his critics on the left never let him forget it. And Obama is now having his legitimacy attacked by a concerted campaign from the right fringe. They are using everything from smears that he is a closet “socialist” to calling him a “liar” in the middle of a joint session of Congress to fabricating doubts about his birth in America and whether he is even a citizen. And these attacks are not just coming from the fringe. Now they come from Lou Dobbs on CNN and from members of the House of Representatives. Again, hack away at the man’s policies and even his character all you want. I know politics is a tough business. But

if we destroy the legitimacy of another president to lead or to pull the country together for what most Americans want most right now — nationbuilding at home — we are in serious trouble. We can’t go 24 years without a legitimate president — not without being swamped by the problems that we will end up postponing because we can’t address them rationally. The American political system was, as the saying goes, “designed by geniuses so it could be run by idiots.” But a cocktail of political and technological trends have converged in the last decade that are making it possible for the idiots of all political stripes to overwhelm and paralyze the genius of our system. Those factors are: the wild excess of money in politics; the gerrymandering of political districts, making them permanently Republican or Democratic and erasing the political middle; a 24/7 cable news cycle that makes all politics a daily

Sam Ayer brings his powerful vocals to The Boathouse Pub most Wednesdays.

his family’s taste for live music, he said. The result is a “varied but very contemporary” mix that seems to go over well with the crowd at The Boathouse, Schuetz said. “It’s good music, people get behind it and it keeps an upbeat attitude at the bar,” Schuetz said. Ayer said he’s working on some original tunes to add to his stock of covers. The New England native started out as a drummer when he was 6 years old. Guitar came years later, when Ayer found himself looking for a way to occupy his mind. “My father passed away after my freshman year in college, so

Performing popular hits and obscure singer-songwriter songs in local bars wasn’t necessarily part of Sam Ayer’s work plan when he moved to Steamboat Springs from Boulder in June 2008. But when one of his first jobs in town offered that opportunity, Ayer took it. “He got started actually as my bouncer when we first opened,” said Joe Schuetz, general manager at The Boathouse Pub, where Ayer plays most Wednesday nights. “He mentioned that he played guitar, and I gave him a shot and he rocked it, and he’s been playing with me ever since.” That turned into what is now Irish Night, a regular setup featuring Ayer on guitar and Guinness at the bar. The weekly show earned Ayer a performance spot last winter at Gondola Pub & Grill, a gig he’ll reclaim twice a week this ski season. During each of his bar concerts, Ayer puts out a variety of songs that can include honky-tonk tunes by Hank Williams or hip-hop cuts by Outkast. Ayer’s variety of song styles comes from his parents’ record collection — which was heavy on jazz, folk and blues — and

Public defender Sheryl Uhlmann said Tuesday’s arrest of a former Craig police detective raises disturbing questions about his employment as a law enforcement officer. “Former detective Ken Johnson was allowed to continue working as a sworn peace officer, investigating and accusing others, while himself under investigation for sexual misconduct with a drug court client and for criminal activity,” Uhlmann wrote in an e-mail to the Craig Daily Press. “These allegations, if true, are an appalling breach of public trust.” Johnson, 42, was a nine-year

Frustration There was frustration on both sides of the council’s tight vote. Councilman Jon Quinn said he was upset that years of planning and preparation came so close to failing. “I was bummed. I shouldn’t be so passionate about it, but I truly think it is better for us to have a plan for growth rather than not have one,” he said. “This community will continue

$1,900 to $2,400 for sewer. The town still has to pay to keep the water and sewer plants running if water usage is down, Martin said. The town also is paying $115,000 a year on its debt for the water plant. The town has 12 more years on its 20-year loan. Martin said staff members looked at refinancing and found that it would increase costs. Council member Bill Hayden said he thought the town should look at its water loss before increasing users’ rates. Hayden has persistently raised the issue at Town Council meetings and said he hasn’t been satisfied with the answers. The town could be losing as much as 29 percent of

its water between the plant and what do we sell it for, and we can say how many dollars are consumers. Those numbers could be a we losing.” Council Member Jim Haskins result of inaccurate meters at said he was interthe water plant, ested in hearing Martin has said. “That’s why things where the conversaHunting for a leak like the car rental tion goes tonight. could cost about tax are important He wasn’t ready to $10,000, he said. is because we’re comment on speHayden said he cific rate increases wanted to meahaving to take sure that against but did say the genthings from the eral fund shouldn’t the money the general fund to keep ultimately subsidize town was losing the water and sewer the sewer and water on unpaid-for systems. water. running.” “I think the “What happens board is committed is we’re trying to Russ Martin to seeing the enterbuy a dozen eggs town manager prises fund themwithout knowing how much selves,” Haskins it costs,” he said. “How much said. “I think that’s something does it cost to produce, and we all want to see them do.”

Without tap fees, the enterprise fund runs on about a $90,000 annual deficit, Martin has said. The town must find a way to cover that cost, he said. That’s part of the reason for a proposed sales tax increase on car rentals and lodging. In a pinch, that income could fill gaps. “That’s why things like the car rental tax are important is because we’re having to take things from the general fund to keep the water and sewer running,” Martin said. If the Town Council approves the first reading of the water rate ordinance tonight, it will go to a public hearing Oct. 15. To reach Blythe Terrell, call 871-4234 or e-mail

to grow for the basic reason that it is a place people want to be. It’s better to make sure we have a plan for it.” Quinn said he was surprised by the three “no” votes cast by Hermacinski and council members Steve Ivancie and Meg Bentley. Quinn said he felt the votes were not adequately explained. Shortly after the meeting, he confronted Ivancie and asked whether he was ready to throw the entire development away. Ivancie said he voted against the first reading of an ordinance annexing the property because of lingering concerns and his belief that the process is moving too quickly. A motion by Ivancie to table the ordinance failed. “I’m not a slave to anybody’s schedule. We only get one shot at this,” Ivancie said. “We’re all taking it very seriously, but I see no reason to rush this. I’m willing to vote on it, but I’m not willing to rush it.”

said. “I know it seems like a big development, but I think it makes sense. If it goes elsewhere, there’s nobody to help us pay for it.” Mulcahy said he doesn’t think the attainable housing issue is insurmountable. “We’re going to work with staff to come to a solution,” he said. “Our housing is geared to the work force of the community, so it shouldn’t be too hard to provide the community with some assurances of that.”

tained, planned approach to growth.” Council members requested that a number of issues be addressed before Steamboat 700 returns in two weeks. They included an additional land dedication for affordable housing and stronger assurances that the development will employ green practices. The biggest concern, however, was that Steamboat 700 somehow prove that its homes will be affordable to working-class residents. Because of the expensive toll of public improvements being required of the development, some council members fear that is not possible. “I have to see enough numbers to believe this will really provide attainable, free-market housing to the community,” Councilwoman Cari Hermacinski said. Mulcahy noted that he will

be able to spread the cost of improvements across the entire development and said some cost estimates, particularly those related to U.S. Highway 40, are too high. Some council members and residents wanted more than Mulcahy’s word, however. “Nowhere in the contract is that verbal intent written,” resident Catherine Carson said. “If it’s not in writing, it may or may not have occurred.” Others felt council was teetering dangerously close to denying the development and thus losing $140 million in public benefits such as a fire station, school, highway improvements, parks and more. They also said allowing Steamboat 700 to solve some of the community’s problems is better than denying it because it doesn’t fix all of them. “I really feel like if we don’t plan for and make this happen now, we’re walking away from an opportunity to have a partner,” resident Greg Long

Colorado gets $34M for energy projects

Colorado will get more than $34 million in federal stimulus money for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu said Wednesday. Of the total, $9.5 million will be used to expand the Renewable Energy Rebates and Grants Program, Chu said. The other $24.6 million will go to the State Energy Program. The projects will reduce energy consumption and carbon pollution, and create green jobs across the state, Chu said. Gov. Bill Ritter said the funding will help Colorado achieve its Climate Action Plan, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent against 2005 levels by 2020, and by 80 percent by 2050. Part of the money will be used for rebates that will reimburse homeowners for a portion of the cost of activities such as energy audits or the installation of attic insulation, air sealing, duct sealing, and high-efficiency furnace replacements. It also will be used for incentives for residents and businesses that use onsite renewable energy technology, particularly home heating systems, and the state also will offer $400 rebates for the purchase and installation of efficient biomass-burning stoves that can make use of the state’s wood-pellet resource. The money also will be used for programs to help state agencies, including public schools, reduce their energy use and carbon emissions. The state says it will promote greater energy efficiency in new and existing homes with programs such as a “whole house tune up” that bundles efficiency incentives.

Grand Junction man is accused of artifact looting DENVER


A Colorado man has pleaded not guilty to charges of illegally selling and transporting Southwestern archaeological artifacts. Robert B. Knowlton, of Grand Junction, entered his plea Wednesday in Denver federal court. He’s accused of selling a pipe, a knife and a knifepoint taken from federal land and mailing them from Colorado to Utah. Knowlton is among more than 25 people caught up in a federal sting in the Four Corners region.

Knowlton ran an Internetbased business called Bob’s Flint Shop. A search warrant affidavit says he told an undercover informant that his collection included about 3,700 artifacts with a retail value of a half-million dollars or more.

Woman to donate kidney to her ex-mother-in-law GRAND JUNCTION

When Julie Kochevar got a divorce, she remained close to her ex-mother-in-law — close enough to donate a kidney to her. The 44-year-old Grand Junction woman will give 66year-old Wanda Elsberry a kidney in an operation scheduled for late October in Denver. Elsberry has kidney disease prompted by diabetes and high blood pressure. Without a replacement kidney, she would have to start dialysis treatments soon. Elsberry says the waiting list for a kidney is four to five years in Colorado, and other family members who offered her an organ were not a match. Kochevar then stepped up, and tests showed she was a good donor. Elsberry says, “How do you tell someone thank you for that?”

Ritter aide is nominated for Colorado US attorney DENVER

President Barack Obama has nominated Gov. Bill Ritter’s deputy chief of staff to be the top federal prosecutor in Colorado. Sen. Mark Udall announced Wednesday that Stephanie Villafuerte has been nominated for U.S. attorney. Udall said former Larimer County Undersheriff John Kammerzel also has been nominated for U.S. marshal for Colorado. Villafuerte has served chief deputy Denver district attorney and as an assistant U.S. attorney. She is a board member of the Denver Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Kammerzel is director of the Colorado Peace Officer Standards and Training Board, which establishes training criteria for officers. He also served as the director of the County Sheriffs of Colorado and with the Rio Blanco County sheriff’s department and the Colorado State Patrol.


Mighty quake hits Indonesia Thousands still trapped in fallen buildings; at least 75 dead THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


A powerful earthquake struck western Indonesia on Wednesday, triggering landslides and trapping thousands under collapsed buildings — including two hospitals, an official said. At least 75 bodies were found, but the toll was expected to be far higher. The temblor started fires, severed roads and cut off power and communications to Padang, a coastal city of 900,000 on Sumatra island. Thousands fled in panic, fearing a tsunami. In the sprawling low-lying city of Padang, the shaking was so intense that people crouched or sat on the street to avoid falling. Children screamed as an exodus of thousands tried to get away from the coast in cars and motorbikes, honking horns. The magnitude 7.6 quake hit at 5:15 p.m. just off the coast of Padang, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. It occurred a day after a killer tsunami hit islands in the South Pacific and was along the same fault line that spawned the 2004 Asian tsunami that killed 230,000 people in 11 nations.

And there was almost nothing to slow the water down. It all started with a type of earthquake that tends to generate strong tsunamis because of the angle at which the ground breaks. Also, the quake was extremely powerful, with a magnitude of 8.0. It struck just below the ocean floor, which means very little lost energy. And it happened in deep water, which means bigger waves. Four sets of waves 15 to 20 feet high hit. As of Wednesday afternoon, the death toll had climbed to more than 100.

West goes to Iran talks and readies sanctions GENEVA

The U.S. and five other world powers go to the table with Iran today to demand a freeze of its nuclear activities, and a senior U.S. official said Washington may seek rare face-to-face talks with Iranian diplomats. Even as they prepared for today’s talks, the U.S. and its allies were contemplating new and tighter sanctions on Tehran, in a clear signal of expectations that the negotiations may again end in failure.

In 16 states, drug deaths overtake traffic fatalities ATLANTA

In 16 states and counting, drugs now kill more people than auto accidents do, the government reported Wednesday. Experts said the startling shift reflects two opposite trends: Driving is becoming safer, and the legal and illegal use of powerful prescription painkillers is on the rise. For decades, traffic accidents have been the biggest cause of injury-related death in the U.S., and they are still No. 1. But drug overdoses are pulling ahead in one state after another. The number of states in which drug-related deaths have overtaken traffic fatalities has gone from eight in 2003 to 12 in 2005, and 16 in 2006. They are: Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. It’s not clear why those states have seen such a shift, but experts said certain drugs may be more of a problem in some states than in others.

Summit sinks Steamboat

Sailors struggle against Tigers in snowy matchup

Rockies topple Brewers Colorado edges toward playoffs

Joel Reichenberger PILOT & TODAY STAFF

Pat Graham


Playing a nonleague game, the Steamboat Springs High School soccer team’s Wednesday night game against Summit had no bearing on the logjam at the top of the Western Slope League. That was about the only good news to be found for the squad as the snow fell and the Sailors sulked off Gardner Field. Summit got a goal from senior Turner Colvin with 2 minutes, 37 seconds remaining in the first overtime period, winning Wednesday night’s showdown, 2-1. “We fought hard there at the end and got lucky on a golden goal,” Summit coach Matt Zeiset said. “That’s huge for us to come out and play a strong team and play decently and come away with the win. It’s a big confidence builder for us.” Colvin’s score came as Summit (3-4-1) controlled much of the action in the overtime period. He finally got a chance and was easily able to put the ball away as his teammates celebrated and his coaching staff sprinted onto the field, arms held high. “Dax Kellie gave me a great touch right into the box. I took a touch, and it hit the goalie, but it bounced off him and back onto my foot, and I touched it

The Braves lost, 5-4, to the Florida Marlins earlier in the night. Colorado also is creeping closer to the Dodgers, who began the night with a 3 1/2game lead in the NL West. The Rockies finish the season with three games in Los Angeles. Helton showed rare emotion after his drive in the third, raising his right hand high in the air as he circled the bases. It was Helton’s 15th homer of the season. Gonzalez also had a triple to go with his shot, and Tulowitzki picked up his 31st homer of the season.

Broncos’ Orton embraces ‘game manager’ role Arnie Stapleton



His coach, offensive coordinator and even some teammates shy away from the term “game manager” when talking about Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton, figuring it has a negative tenor. Not Orton.

He embraces the term and doesn’t see it as an insult at all. “Not in my mind. I mean, that’s my No. 1 job description as a quarterback is to manage the game, and it’s tough to win games if you beat yourself,” Orton said. “So, that’s really my approach going into every game.” Orton’s style is a far cry from his predecessor, Pro Bowl

NFL passer Jay Cutler, who famously bragged that his arm was stronger than Hall of Famer John Elway’s and often seemed intent on proving just that. Orton isn’t nearly as exciting as Cutler. But he’s certainly been more efficient and effective so far.

Ten times in his career, Cutler has thrown for 300 or more yards. Orton, who was traded to the Broncos for Cutler this offseason, has but a single 300yard game to his name. Yet, Orton is 22-12 as a starter in the NFL, Cutler 19-21. While Cutler gives the Bears (2-1) their first franchise quarterback since Sid Luckman in the 1940s and hope for a

Super Bowl, Orton has given the Broncos (3-0) steady play that includes a lot of low-risk passes and quick throwaways when he’s in trouble. “I try to obviously play smart football, not put our offense or our defense in bad situations — and make plays when they’re there,” Orton said. “It’s certainly See Broncos, page 22

Rockies fans hoping for Rocktober run Rockies continued from 20 The Rockies captured their 90th win of the season, tying the franchise record. They also had that many in 2007 when they closed with an amazing surge and beat the San Diego Padres in a play-in game, igniting their Rocktober run to the World Series. Coming soon: A Rocktober encore? The Coors Field fans certainly think so, holding up Rocktober-themed signs. Yorvit Torrealba had three hits for Colorado, including an RBI single. He also sprinted home on a wild pitch, one of two from Jeff Suppan (7-12) that allowed runs to score. Prince Fielder, Mike Cameron and Casey McGehee hit solo homers for the Brewers, and Jason Kendall drove in two runs. Jason Hammel (10-8) became the fifth Colorado pitcher to reach double digits in wins this season, going five innings and giving up four runs and seven hits. He also tied a career high with eight strikeouts. A parade of relievers held on from there, allowing two runs in the final four innings. Matt Belisle retired three straight

After Tigers’ 1st goal, Sailors lose rhythm

Apples to apples, we can beat any new car price. Come in and save your time and money need to go to Denver.

Soccer continued from 20 Andrew White put the Sailors in front with a dramatic goal midway through the period. He chased down a long ball and barely beat Summit’s keeper to it. Then, still shackled by a defender, he raced toward the goal and managed to poke the ball toward the net. It was a slow and weak shot, but no Tigers could catch up, and it slipped into the goal. It was the early opportunities Steamboat missed that would

linger in the players’ minds, however. Several shots flew just high or wide, and one careful and powerful blast deflected perfectly off of one of the uprights and straight back onto the field. “We had a good first half, but from a coaching perspective, we made way too many changes when we had a really good rhythm and it was still a tight game,” Bohlmann said. Summit finally managed to take advantage of Steamboat’s lapses, and put in its first goal

with 3:17 remaining in the first half. Taylor Colvin got the ball in front of the Sailors’ net, paused, passed, and then a moment later, got it again and blasted it home. Steamboat was never the same. “This game can change on a dime, and that’s what happened,” Bohlmann said. “That goal gave them a lot of spirit, and in the second half, we never quite recovered to find that rhythm we had early on.”

not a style of play where you’re scared to take chances or scared to take shots. It’s just knowing the right time to do them.” Orton doesn’t have the powerful arm or the lofty passing statistics of his predecessor, whom former coach Mike Shanahan used to encourage to take chances downfield, reasoning that an interception on a deep third-and-long pass was just as good as a punt, so why worry? Cutler has such faith in his fastball that he often tries to fit darts into small spaces, resulting in either a spectacular play or a forehead-slapping interception.

64 percent of his throws for an average of 253 yards with six touchdowns, five interceptions and six sacks. He’s also lost a fumble. Orton has completed 56 percent of his passes for an average of 221 yards with three touchdowns, no interceptions and three sacks with the Broncos. Both are averaging 7.5 yards per pass attempt. In Chicago, Orton ran a conservative offense that complemented the defense-first philosophy that had reigned in the Windy City for half a century, so it’s no surprise that he has averaged just 175 yards passing per game in his career while Cutler’s clip is 245 yards. So far in Denver, Orton has been asked to do the same thing he did in Chicago: stay out of trouble, make smart decisions and let the defense do its thing. Broncos coach Josh McDaniels bristled, however, when it was suggested that he had the ultimate game manager in Orton. “We don’t ever talk about our quarterbacks as game managers,” McDaniels insisted. “But you want a quarterback to be efficient. You want him to be able to run the operation at the line of scrimmage, in the huddle, very well.” Efficiency and effectiveness aren’t just measured by a lack of turnovers.

“Nobody talks about the quarterback when you talk about running for 215 yards, but when he’s talking you out of a play that’s going to go nowhere and you gain 26 on the other play, he plays a part in good running,” McDaniels said of Orton’s call changes at the line of scrimmage in Denver’s 23-3 win at Oakland last week. Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy also seems to view “game manager” as a dirty word. “I don’t think we really tell our quarterbacks to manage the game,” McCoy said. “Our quarterback’s going to go out there and be efficient, he’s not going to turn the ball over. ... But I wouldn’t say he’s a ’game manager.’ I don’t want to think that somebody’s going to go in there and ’not’ lose a game.” McDaniels said he’d love to see more production out of his quarterback, but the bottom line is playing smart football. “We don’t go into each week saying, ‘We’re only going to throw for 140 this week. Just make sure you don’t do anything negative,”’ McDaniels said. “We’re going to try to attack the defense in every way, shape or form we can and then once the game declares itself, once you have a 17-0 lead in the fourth quarter, you’re not going to do too many things that put the game in jeopardy. And that’s what happened” Sunday.

Oldham: We will be re-evaluating cases Haberlan: Illnesses varied ing the internal investigation of Johnson. “By allowing these allegations to remain hidden, the Craig Police Department and District Attorney’s Office fundamentally undermine public confidence in the justice system, the very system they are supposed to protect,” wrote Uhlmann, who defends clients in the 14th Judicial District. “The Craig Police Department should stop trying to prevent the disclosure of information relating to Mr. Johnson’s misconduct and should publicly explain why, in spite of their knowledge of serious allegations of misconduct, Mr. Johnson was allowed to continue working as a peace officer in our community,” Uhlmann said. The police department investigated Johnson and Merwin’s suspected relationship in March, and the findings of that internal probe were inconclusive, according to court records. The District Attorney’s Office began its own inquiry in July. Uhlmann said the Johnson investigation also could affect past and current criminal cases the detective was involved in, either as an investigator or witness. It’s too soon to say whether

her office will file appeals or request retrials, she said. Elizabeth Oldham, 14th Judicial District Attorney, said her office is preparing to release the investigation findings to past and present defendants and defense attorneys. “We will be willing to re-evaluate cases in light of what happened,” Oldham said. “We intend to be fair in evaluating cases.” Oldham said she didn’t know how many cases could be affected by the evidence in Johnson’s case, how far back her office would go to find cases or how much money the added work would cost her office. Perhaps the most notable case that may be affected is that of James Jerome Barry, who was convicted in December 2008 of kidnapping and assaulting Merwin in 2007. Johnson assisted in the investigation that led to Barry’s arrest and testified as a rebuttal witness during his trial, according to Johnson’s arrest warrant affidavit. The affidavit also states that Merwin told investigators her relationship with Johnson began in spring 2008, which would mean she and Johnson were involved at the time of Barry’s trial. Barry is serving a 24-year prison sentence at Buena Vista Correctional Complex, accord-

of illnesses experienced by students. Haberlan said those illnesses include the flu, strep throat, stomach virus, sinus infection and head and chest colds. She said some students who were sick recently were home again Wednesday. Haberlan said that indicated weakened immune systems or students who returned to school before they were completely healthy. She urged parents to keep their children home 24 hours after their fevers were gone. “We’re still seeing sick kids come to school,” Haberlan said. “That just spreads it.” Principal Tim Bishop said only 11 students were sent home sick Wednesday, after 66 were sent home Tuesday. “Our nurses saw many fewer kids than the last couple of days,” he said. “So I’m hoping this number continues going in a downward spiral.” Bishop said in addition to encouraging students to wash their hands frequently and use hand sanitizer, efforts to fur-

ther curb the spread of germs, such as frequently disinfecting doorknobs and railings, continued. He said he still doesn’t know why only the middle school has been hit to such a degree. Bishop said it will be interesting to see what happens the rest of the week, and whether Strawberry Park and Soda Creek elementary schools and Steamboat Springs High School will get hit with more absences in a week or two. The elementary and high schools have only had slightly higher absentee rates typical of this time of year, district officials have said. — To reach Jack Weinstein, call 871-4203 or e-mail

ing to the Colorado Department of Corrections. Barry’s attorney in court, Kristopher Hammond, of Steamboat Springs, could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Craig Police officials said they would not comment on matters related to Johnson and Merwin’s arrests, or preceding investigations. Police Commander Jerry DeLong said the department’s internal investigation into Johnson’s activities is a personnel matter. DeLong also would not comment about why the department’s investigation was inconclusive, but the District Attorney’s Office found evidence that led to the arrests of Johnson and Merwin. “The District Attorney’s Office has requested that we do not release any information,” DeLong said. “If any information is needed, then go ahead and contact them, the District Attorney’s Office.” Oldham said she could not explain why Johnson remained a detective until September. “We don’t employ him,” she said. “However, when we heard some of the allegations, we fully investigated it and exhausted many avenues in trying to make sure we got all the information, but we don’t employ him.”

Workers will help emergency responders At Steamboat Motors, we believe all customers are entitled to fair prices: Apples to apples, we’ll beat any new car price.

Traffic continued from 1 cially now that motorists can turn left at that signal onto 13th Street,” she said. Eastbound traffic still will be reduced to one lane as crews work between 12th and 13th streets, but Shanks said crews probably will move to Ninth Street by Thursday. Construction will continue along the south side of Lincoln Avenue, moving east down the street as crews work on utilities, the road surface and sidewalks. Once workers reach Third Street, they will switch to the north side of the street and work back in the opposite direction, to the west. Shanks said crew members working on U.S. 40 will be in contact with emergency workers as the project moves from block to block. Stewart said Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue has not yet had any calls that necessitated driving through the construction area during rush hour. “One of the main areas we’re concerned about is the inter-

change at 13th Street because there’s just not anywhere for people to go,” he said. Routt County Communications Director JP Harris said he also has talked with Stewart and hopes to get a plan in place to give dispatchers a better idea of how to route responders to avoid traffic. “It’s definitely a good idea to have a plan, and we will, it’s just a matter of getting the agencies together to discuss it,” he said. Local project spokeswoman Jody Patten said construction workers will help the emergency vehicles move through construction sites, and construction teams will give dispatchers daily updates on road closures. Steamboat Springs Police Department Sgt. Dale Coyner said police officers will have to be very careful driving through the construction zone on emergency calls. “We just have to play it very smart,” he said. “We have to be very careful, very diligent and if we need to get somewhere quickly, it’s going to be full-on lights and sirens.”

CDOT also will hold a public information meeting from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 6 at Centennial Hall to answer questions and field comments from the public.

Coyner said the officers have been cautioned to use the appropriate amount of speed and that officers will be using the center lanes, shoulders of the roads and any other way to avoid the traffic in the area. “It will come, and it will happen,” he said. “We will just have to fall back on our training and slow down. We can’t do any good to anybody if we don’t get there safely.” Routt County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Ken Klinger said that his office has not yet experienced any delays on emergency calls, “but it’s coming. I’m sure of that.”
