Health fair to offer glucose test Hemoglobin A1C called ‘gold standard’ of diabetes management

At next week’s early blood draws and at the Oct. 24 Yampa Valley Medical Center Community Health Fair, we will offer hemoglobin A1C as an additional blood test. Because we already have received questions and expect to hear more, this column will explain the importance of this test and what it measures. Hemoglobin A1C also is called “glycosylated hemoglobin,” “HbA1C” or simply “A1C.” It is a blood test that measures the average glucose in someone’s blood during the past two to three months. It is actually not a true average because about half the result reflects the 30 days just prior to the test, while the other half reflects the previous two months. However, it is easier to understand it in terms of an average, which is why we use that word.

���������������������������

Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. Glucose attaches to hemoglobin and remains attached for the life of the red blood cell, which is about 120 days. Someone with diabetes (types 1 or 2) manages his or her disease on a daily basis by making food choices, exercising, taking medications, managing stress and monitoring blood glucose levels. Hemoglobin A1C is often referred to as the “gold standard” of diabetes management because it is the best way to get feedback on how all this is going. Are the daily management efforts working? Does something need to be adjusted? Hemoglobin A1C provides a big-picture look

at diabetes management, while home blood glucose monitoring is a snapshot of one point in time. Hemoglobin A1C does not replace home blood glucose monitoring; however, these numbers help people with diabetes make specific decisions about their diabetes management. Generally, people with diabetes have their hemoglobin A1C measured every three months. If someone’s blood glucose levels are stable, it is acceptable to have a hemoglobin A1C checked every four to six months. For someone who does not have diabetes, a normal hemoglobin A1C level would fall between 4 and 6 percent. The recommendation for people with diabetes is to keep their hemoglobin A1C below 7 percent. The results of a large research study, published in 1993, showed that people who keep their See Monday Medical, page 12

Traffic backs up from 13th Street along U.S. Highway 40 during construction last week. Although several improvements to U.S. 40 would accompany the proposed Steamboat 700 annexation, the 13th Street bottleneck is left relatively unaddressed.

The 13th Street bottleneck at the west entrance to downtown Steamboat Springs is left relatively unaddressed in required traffic improvements that would accompany the proposed Steamboat 700 annexation.

Some argue that because the bottleneck is a community problem that has been neglected for decades, it shouldn’t be laid at the feet of one developer. Others contend that it would be irresponsible for the city to approve the development without first solving the problem. “We’re kidding ourselves if we don’t deal with that soon,”

COMMENTARY

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

Dad’s life or yours? You choose Nicholas D. Kristof THE NEW YORK TIMES

So what would you do if your mom or dad, or perhaps your sister or brother, needed a kidney donation and you were the one best positioned to donate? Most of us would worry a little and then step forward. But not so fast. Because of our dysfunctional health insurance system, a disgrace that nearly half of all members of Congress seem determined to cling to, stepping up to save a loved one can Kristof ruin your own chance of ever getting health insurance. That wrenching trade-off is another reminder of the moral bankruptcy of our existing insurance system. It’s one more reason to pass robust reform this year. During the past week, I’ve been speaking to David Waddington, a 58-year-old

wine retailer in Dallas, along with his wife and two sons. I’d love to know what the opponents of health reform think families like this should do. Waddington has polycystic kidney disease, or PKD, a genetic disorder that leads to kidney failure. First he lost one kidney and then the other. A year ago, he was on dialysis and desperately needed a new kidney. Doctors explained that the best match - the one least likely to be rejected — would perhaps come from Travis or Michael, his two sons, then ages 29 and 27. Travis and Michael each had a 50 percent chance of inheriting PKD. And if pre-donation testing revealed that one of them had the disorder, that brother might never be able to get health insurance. As a result, their doctors had advised not getting tested. After all, new research suggests that lack of insurance increases a working-age person’s risk of dying in any given year by 40 percent.

“At the time David needed a transplant, the people closest to him couldn’t even offer a lifesaving donation — for insurance reasons,” said Waddington’s wife, Susan. Travis, who is living in New York and working toward a math doctorate, is anguished at having to weigh insurance obstacles against the chance to save his dad. “Can you put a price on your father’s life?” he asked. “My brother and I talked it over privately and agreed that we should both go ahead and get tested anyway. It seemed like the only course of action. We presented our plan to our parents, and, of course, Mom immediately shot it down, with Dad firmly behind her. “We had to respect their right to want to protect us. But it was enraging to be in that situation and to be completely impotent to do anything to help. I told myself a number of times that we would reconSee Kristof, page 9

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” — Alice in Wonderland What we are led to believe by an often lazy and President Barack Obama-supporting big media, enabled by a delibThomas erately ignorant public that lacks, rather than longs, for the truth, is not as it first seems. Take just one example. Remember the four Chinese Uighur released from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay? They were flown to Bermuda where they now reside under

conditions that are better than any they might have imagined. The storyline cast the men as innocent victims of a military terrorist sweep in Afghanistan. There are other Uighur detainees at Guantanamo ... for now, despite the fact that the Left is doing everything in its power to have them released and resettled elsewhere. (And despite the fact that the Obama administration, which no longer uses the words “war on terror” to describe the war on terrorism, seems intent on redefining those held at Gitmo — the better to make them seem nonthreatening. Assistant Secretary of State P.J. Crowley recently referred to them as “refugees.”) Last Tuesday, The Washington Post carried a story about two of them, brothers Bahtiyar Mahnut and Arkin Mahmud. The Post story suggested that Mahnut and Mahmud were being held for no good reason and should be freed. Problem is most countries are hesitant about accepting the Uighur for fear of

angering China. The Uighur, you see, are a Turkish ethnic group, Muslim Chinese nationalists, whom the Chinese government has labeled “terrorists.” The South Pacific island of Palau, however, agreed to take Bahtiyar but not his brother. In an apparent demonstration of Uighur “family values,” Bahtiyar refused to leave without Arkin. The Post’s Web page features an embedded video of the brothers’ lawyer, Elizabeth Gilson, who explains that the men just “ended up in Afghanistan,” apparently like one might end up pregnant, without knowing how. Had The Post dug a little deeper, it would have found the truth about the brothers. According to Gitmo’s Combat Status Review Tribunal, a senior al-Qaida terrorist in the Tora Bora Mountains of Afghanistan trained Bahtiyar Mahnut. Bahtiyar admitted as much when he See Thomas, page 9 Bruce Tinsley

Congress unmoved by health care stories Kristof continued from 8 sider the issue of testing if Dad’s dialysis stopped working before he got a transplant.” David Waddington finally got that transplant when a kidney from a deceased donor became available. But our insurance system has had other excruciating consequences for the Waddingtons. Though PKD has no cure as such, there are experimental medications that may delay kidney problems. To get access to the medications, a patient must be tested — and since Travis and Michael Waddington don’t dare get tested, they don’t have access to these medications. “The only way to do it is to lie about your name during testing, to use a fictitious name,” Susan Waddington said. “That was the advice we got from a major person in the field. We

didn’t do that.” The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, passed last year, should eventually help people get access to health insurance even if they have a genetic predisposition to a disease. But insurance companies still will be free to discriminate against people who show symptoms of those diseases. That’s what’s happening now with Michael. For years, he and Travis were afraid to mention to physicians their 50 percent chance of inheriting PKD, but recently Michael began suffering pains and went to the emergency room. After examining him and ordering tests, the doctor asked him, “Have you ever heard of PKD?” “I felt the jig was up, and I could disclose my knowledge,” Michael said, so he told the doctor about his father. The broader problem is this: Our broken system leads

Americans to spend 16 percent of our national income on health care, twice as much as in parts of Europe, yet with maternal mortality rates and child mortality rates twice those of the best-performing countries. Lack of insurance is linked to nearly 45,000 unnecessary deaths a year, according to a peer-reviewed study to be published in the December issue of The American Journal of Public Health. None of this seems to move members of Congress who oppose health reform. They have first-rate health care for themselves and so perhaps don’t appreciate how their posturing forces people like the Waddingtons into impossible situations. Let’s hope they find it in their hearts to overhaul an existing insurance system that is the disgrace of the industrialized world.

Brothers are trained terrorists not refugees Thomas continued from 8 explained to his interrogators why he went to Afghanistan: “To our knowledge there was no fighting with the Chinese in Afghanistan, and it was therefore a safe place to train so we could one day fight the Chinese. The person running the camp was Abdul Haq, and he was a Uighur.” And who, you might ask (but The Post didn’t) is Abdul Haq? According to the U.S. Treasury Department, he’s “a senior al-Qaida member who sits on al-Qaida’s Shura Council. He is also the leader of the al-Qaidaaffiliated Turkistan Islamic Party, also known as the Eastern Turkistan Islamic Movement,

which has been designated by the United States and the UN as a terrorist organization.” Given these facts, one might reasonably doubt that these brothers were anything less than brothers in arms with a distinct mission. The only allusion to any of this was contained in three sentences in The Post story. It said, “Authorities alleged at the time that the men trained in military-style camps affiliated with the Taliban or al-Qaida. The accusations later dissolved upon close scrutiny by the courts.” There was no “close scrutiny” by the courts. Abdul Haq is a known terrorist. That the Uighur detainees (excuse me, refugees) were trained by him ought to be all the evidence

needed to convince us they were up to no good. Need more? The NEFA Foundation (www.NEFAfoundation. org) has obtained and translated an article published in the Turkistan Islamic Party’s “Islamic Turkestan” magazine titled, “America Is Leading the Capitalist World Towards Collapse.” The article says charging interest is against the will of Allah and “His Messenger” and that those who use interest will be “struck with the wrath of Allah,” apparently with the help of the Uighur and other terrorists, uh, refugees. These are the doctrines followed by those who wish to destroy us. We had better pay attention.

Improving older adults’ oral health

Editor’s note: This article originally was published Oct. 13, 2008. It has been updated for accuracy. Tamera Manzanares

FOR THE STEAMBOAT TODAY

There is good news and bad news when it comes to older adults’ oral health. Although more adults are keeping their teeth into old age, physical, cognitive and financial problems can make it difficult for them to ward off oral decay and disease. “The biggest problem with the elderly is they basically outlive their teeth,” said Gary Fresques, a dentist in Steamboat Springs who performs dental work on residents at The Doak Walker Care Center. He explained that even people with healthy, well-maintained teeth and gums will likely need to have old dental work such as fillings and crowns replaced after the age of 50. As they age, illnesses can make oral maintenance difficult and, without the help of others, oral hygiene easily falls by the wayside. “Without exception, every (older) patient that comes in my office has tons of food and debris stuck in their teeth ... and have rampant decay — it’s sad,” Fresques said. Oral health problems in older adults can have a profound effect on a person’s overall health and quality of life. Dental disease can be painful, prevent a person from enjoying food and eating nutritiously and also affect his or her ability to laugh, smile, talk and be social. Researchers also suspect links between periodontitis, or advanced gum disease, and

other serious health problems such as cardiovascular disease, stroke and bacterial pneumonia. People with conditions such as diabetes, HIV and AIDS also may be at higher risk for developing severe periodontal disease.

Oral health problems Individuals can help themselves and those they care for by learning about common oral problems and preventative practices. Two of the most common oral conditions are dental carries or cavities and periodontal (gum) disease. Nearly one-third of adults 65 and older have untreated tooth decay, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, which recommends using a fluoride toothpaste and drinking fluoridated water to help reduce and prevent cavities. There is some public concern about potential health effects of consuming certain levels of fluoride. For research and other information related to this, log on to www.ada.org.

lab has available for measuring hemoglobin A1C. This blood test does not require fasting because the test is not affected by what the person does on the day it is drawn, such as consuming food or exercising. Up until now, hemoglobin A1C has not been used to diagnose diabetes. If the result is elevated above the normal range, we know something is off; however, if the result is normal, it could be missing elevated blood glucose levels at a particular time of day. For instance, many people with Type 2 diabetes have elevated fasting blood glucose levels, but the rest of the day their levels are normal. Because the overall “average” may come out fine, the hemoglobin A1C could show up as normal. Health care professionals are discussing this issue and working on a decision regarding use of hemoglobin A1C as a diagnostic tool. In the meantime, people with pre-diabetes (fasting blood glucose between 100 and 125 mg/ dL) can have a hemoglobin A1C test done to see what is happening in the big picture. We now have a conversion chart to help patients and families understand the hemoglobin A1C result better. This chart will be available at YVMC’s Diabetes Education Program booth at the Oct. 24 Community Health Fair, where we will be happy to answer questions. Jane K.

Some area businesses, including Steamboat Smokehouse and Ace at the Curve, also have donation jars.

pigeons while shooting a shotgun for the first time. “It’s fun because you get to hit the target and see how you do,” she said. With more than an hour and a half left to go at the Fun Shoot, Schaeffer, who got involved in shooting through Farrow, said more than 60 people had come out to the event. It cost $30 with discounts for families, and participants were given a T-shirt and provided lunch. “We hope to continue this,” Schaffer said about the Memorial Scholarship Fun Shoot. “We’ve had a lot of support from the community and area businesses. A lot of people knew Lorna. She touched a lot of lives.”

Freseman said he expected more growth. “We know in good time Hayden is going to expand dramatically in terms of demographics,” he said. “We knew this was going to be an opportunity to be on the cutting edge of growth.” Freseman said the organization was paying rent and operating expenses with donations from the town of Hayden. “The town has been extremely supportive of having LIFTUP here since Day 1,” he said. LIFT-UP of Routt County serves only county residents. It requests income verification for some assistance programs and helps people who live at up to 200 percent of the federal poverty line. The agency also administers the Hayden Community Fund, through which Hayden residents donate to help their neighbors.

All Hayden residents also can use Steamboat Springs services, Freseman said. The Steamboat Springs LIFT-UP facility is at 2125 Curve Court.

teaching women and youths. Gary Farrow said his wife saw a need for that instruction. Sunday’s event showed that need still exists. Steamboat resident Bethany Aurin brought her two daughters, Aleigh, 14, and Hayleigh, 11, to the Fun Shoot. She said the shotguns were a little intimidating and big for Hayleigh, who got knocked back after shooting one. But that didn’t stop Hayleigh — who had shot BB guns and pellet guns in the past, but not rifles, muzzle loaders or arrows — from beaming, a wide smile stretched across her freckle-covered face while she described her first experience with new firearms. “I think it’s an adrenaline rush,” she said. “It kind of makes me feel excited. I don’t know how to explain it. You feel like you have a lot of power.” Bethany Aurin, who was a friend of Lorna Farrow’s, said Farrow had encouraged her and her daughters to get involved in shooting sports, but they never took the time until now.

“To support a scholarship fund for someone as awesome as Lorna, it’s a no-brainer,” she said. “I think like us, there’s a lot of people who are kicking themselves for getting involved now. I’m just sad for the circumstances. I would rather be doing this with Lorna.” T.J. Sisto, who was one of the .22-caliber rifle shooting instructors, said Farrow got him and his children involved in the 4H shooting program that she ran with her husband for years. He said not just shooting, but also getting others involved, was Farrow’s passion. “Today, we’ve had about a dozen people who’ve never shot before, many of them kids,” Sisto said. Steamboat resident Heidi Mueller brought her three daughters, Mikala, 10, Nichole, 8, and Lauren, 5, to the Fun Shoot. But only Mikala was old enough to shoot, Mueller said. She said the event gave Mikala, who’s already involved in the 4H shooting program, a chance to try some new firearms while they supported the scholarship fund. Mikala shot two of three clay

fully provide more answers, school officials have said. Mellor also will provide the School Board today with a presentation about federal funding BOCES has paid to the districts and what portion of that funding BOCES still owes local districts. BOCES receives federal funding for special education services that it distributes to the districts or spends on programming for the districts. Board members also will hear a report from Transportation Director Ed Dingledine about using the balance from the Community Oriented Policing Services, or COPS, grant that it received about two years ago. Funding from the grant, which requires the district to match any dollars spent on projects, already has been used to purchase 800 MHz radios for district staff and the security cameras and automated door access systems at district facilities. If approved, the district would provide $21,350 from its capital construction fund to pay for one-half of the cost to purchase the bus surveillance cameras. Matching funds from the COPS grant would pay the balance to fund the project. The new cameras would replace an outdated system that was purchased with an $8,000 Education Fund Board gift awarded in 2005. The School Board meeting begins at 6 p.m. today, followed by executive session until 6:35 p.m. The superintendent’s reports, time for community comments, action and consent agenda items will follow.

Improvements planned at Elk River Road downtown to Steamboat II has identified several improvements to the highway that would accompany the development in phases, if City Council agrees to annex the development at a meeting Oct. 13. Those improvements include a widening of U.S. 40 to four lanes, intersection upgrades, additional transit routes and more accommodation for cyclists and pedestrians. The improvements would actually put more pressure on 13th Street and reduce its level of service, a report released by the city Thursday shows. The intersection of 13th Street and Lincoln Avenue, as U.S. 40 is known through the city, is left on a list of “contingent capital items” for which Steamboat 700 would pay 25 percent of the cost, if and when a solution is identified and Steamboat 700 reaches 800 dwelling units. “Essentially (council’s) take on it was that while Steamboat 700 will certainly increase traffic on that location … the problem exists today, it’s a larger community problem, and it’s not appropriate to put 100 percent of the cost on Steamboat 700,” city Planning Services Manager John Eastman said. At Tuesday’s City Council meeting, resident Maryann Wall said that was an unacceptable compromise. “This bottleneck problem has been kicked down the road forever,” Wall said. “My concern is that this problem has not been adequately addressed.” Resident Bud Romberg coun-

tered that if the city insists on dropping the 13th Street bottleneck problem on the laps of Steamboat 700, it risks losing a partner to help pay for all the other needed improvements to the highway and the goals of the West of Steamboat Springs Area Plan. “Here you’ve got somebody who is going to deal with what the west Steamboat plan has asked for,” Romberg said. “If we don’t take the opportunity now, we may never have the opportunity again.” Solutions for bypassing downtown traffic congestion have been considered since as early as the 1960s, according to reports. City officials have always chosen a noaction alternative over unsavory options that could have a detrimental effect on the character of Old Town or disturb valued open space and parks. The city’s most recent transportation and mobility analysis suggests options such as extending Oak Street west and then south around Iron Spring Park to connect with the intersection of 13th Street and Lincoln Avenue. Another proposal is to widen Lincoln Avenue to six lanes between 13th Street and 12th Street. Eastman said the no-action approach has been appropriate thus far because the city’s true traffic problem is at U.S. 40 and Elk River Road. “It’s not actually where things back up right now,” Eastman said about 13th Street. “The bottleneck doesn’t actually exist yet.” With the proposed improvements to U.S. 40, however, the Elk River Road intersection

would be improved and the major congestion issues would shift east to 13th Street. Intersections are given level-of-service ratings from A to F. A traffic technical memorandum for the NEPA study released Thursday shows that although proposed improvements upgrade most U.S. 40 intersections in western Steamboat to ratings of A or B, 13th Street degrades from B to E, or nearly failing. “E is a very congested condition,” Eastman said. “All of the community plans say that we should be addressing and adding some additional capacity to the bottleneck after you increase to four lanes. … “I think the emphasis is just as much about emergency services as anything.” — To reach Brandon Gee, call 367-7507 or e-mail bgee@steamboatpilot.com

What began for two 13-yearold friends as a day of throwing rocks near a creek turned into a rewarding expedition that unearthed a glimpse of one of Colorado’s oldest dwellers — a mastodon that could be as old as 150,000 years. The discovery this summer by Jake Carstensen and Tyler Kellett marks the third time in Colorado that traces of a mastodon have been found. The previous discoveries were a tooth fragment found northeast of Pueblo in 1875 and a full molar found sometime before 1924 in Golden. But museum officials say this discovery of a mastodon mandible and tusk is the best example yet of the prehistoric animal in Colorado — and it’s a classic example what you can find in your backyard if you have a curious eye. “To me, that is the quintessential story of the natural history museum,” Kirk Johnson, chief curator of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, said Sunday, referring to the teenagers’ discovery. Johnson said “the good stuff is still out there — and you can find it.”

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

It was a day after heavy rain on June 1 when Carstensen and Kellett went to the creek near their suburban homes just outside of Littleton, about 25 miles southwest of Denver. “We went down there just to mess around,” Carstensen said. In the creek, they spotted what they thought was a rock covered in dirt. The boys soon realized the rock was the jaw of a large animal because it had a big tooth.

Colorado ski resorts offer discounts after tough year DENVER

Colorado ski resorts are hoping to win back customers after a year of declining skier visits with aggressive discount strategies and incentives. Senior Vice President at Aspen Skiing Co. David Perry said the new wave of discounts will likely be a part of ski resorts’ marketing strategies for years to come as the industry tries to rebound from a difficult year. Skier visits declined by 7.3 percent last year at the four areas that make Aspen/ Snowmass. Overall, the Colorado ski industry saw a 5.5 percent decline.

Prep sports entering 2nd half

Denver starts year 4-0 with 17-10 win against Dallas Arnie Stapleton

M

ost fall prep teams have reached the halfway point of their seasons, and it’s safe to assume the direction of each squad. The second half of a season, like the second half a football game, is when teams can earn their stripes. So here’s a look around Routt County as high school sports enter October. ■ Top spot and a huge nod of the cap to the Steamboat Springs High School football team. Steamboat beat Palisade 28-21 on Friday, marking the team’s first significant win in more than two years. Sure, the Sailors have made the playoffs the past two years, but as coach Aaron Finch said after the game, they did that by beating the teams they were supposed to beat. Palisade’s a big notch on any team’s belt, and the win legitimizes Steamboat as a topthree team in Class 3A. For any doubters about Austin Hinder, consider this fact: The Cal commit completed 23 of 28 passes Friday. Of his five incomplete passes, one was dropped and one was thrown away. That leaves three passes that found the turf all night. If he’s in a groove, the opposition can pack up and call it a night. ■ Maybe equally impressive was the Steamboat volleyball team. Steamboat swept through Delta and Palisade during the weekend without breaking a sweat. The team is just a game behind Eagle Valley in the race for a Western Slope League title. Most impressive seems to be the team’s chemistry. There are often teams on which some personalities don’t mesh. This Sailors squad isn’t one of them. Assuming the team can keep improving at the pace it has, an Oct. 17 date with Eagle Valley at home could amount to the game of the year. ■ If you’re looking for something fun to do on a Friday night, venture down to Oak Creek to watch Soroco See Graham, page 21

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Stepping onto a college campus can be a new and sometimes frightening thing. For many freshmen, stepping onto a campus and competing in a sport can make that transition even more overwhelming.

But 2009 Steamboat Springs High School graduates John Cutter and Brittany Long have had a different feeling and approach to the beginnings of their careers as collegiate cross-country runners. So far, there haven’t been many surprises. “I felt really prepared for it,” Cutter said. “It’s like everything I did in high school, but

with more intensity and more time.” Cutter, who is running for the University of San Diego, and Long, who is running for Portland State University, have each competed several times this year. As the top two runners for Steamboat for several years, See Running, page 21

Champ Bailey figured the last play was his to make. Why not? Tony Romo had been testing him all afternoon, even though he kept acing every exam. “I welcome it. Please do. That’s the only way I get a chance to make plays,” said Bailey, who had eight tackles, broke up four passes and made one key interception in Denver’s 17-10 win against Dallas on Sunday. His biggest play came with a second left when he knocked away the potential tying touchdown pass from Romo to Sam Hurd on fourth-and-goal from the 2. With the blitz coming, Romo quickly fired toward Hurd cutting across the middle. Bailey reached around and swatted the pass away with his left hand at the last second, giving the Broncos their first 4-0 start since 2003. “Maybe they thought they could catch Champ sleeping,” teammate D.J. Williams surmised. “One of the top corners in the league, my last play, I wouldn’t go toward him.” Romo would. Again. “They’re good all over,” Romo insisted of Denver’s top-ranked defense. “I understand Champ’s good. It’s questionable. I think you could go either way on that call. It’s a bang-bang play and the corner’s always driving on the ball. If he gets to the ball early, that’s part of the game. ... Those are always going to be contested throws.” The Broncos had taken the lead on Brandon Marshall’s 51-yard touchdown catch from Kyle Orton with 1:46 remaining, providing some vindication for the Pro Bowl receiver whose temper tantrum during training camp earned him a nineday suspension from coach Josh McDaniels.

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

For the first time this season, there was nothing at stake for the repeat National League West champion Los Angeles Dodgers. So Joe Torre, maintaining a tradition he used during his time with the New York Yankees, let backup catcher Brad Ausmus manage. Ausmus’ day was a success. Vicente Padilla struck out 10 in five innings, and the Dodgers finished the regular season with a 5-3 victory against the wild-card Colorado Rockies on Sunday. Los Angeles had clinched

its second straight division title Saturday night with a 5-0 victory. “Joe came up to me when we were celebrating on the field last night and said, ‘You want to manage tomorrow night?’ I said, ‘I’ll be here,’ and he said, “All right, you’re managing.” The three-time Gold Glove catcher was ably assisted by “bench coach” Mark Loretta, “hitting coach” Jim Thome and “bullpen coach” Jeff Weaver — all designated by Torre while Bob Schaefer, Don Mattingly and Ken Howell got the day off.

Ausmus went to the mound to make a pitching change in the eighth to replace Ronald Belisario with Scott Elbert, then put himself in as a pinch runner for Thome in the bottom half after his hitting coach singled. “I’m turning the reins right back over to Joe — if he ever shows up again,” Ausmus joked. “Today’s just all about the fun. We’re fortunate we’re in a position where we can have fun like this. I have thought about doing it, but I’m still trying to get through the playing part of my career.

can clinch the championship with a win at home Wednesday. Indiana forward Tamika Catchings said Hoffman has been a force since going through a slump at the end of the regular season. “In the playoffs, she’s stepped up her game and done such big things, especially in the Phoenix series, playing unbelievable, out of her mind,” Catchings said. “That’s awesome to see that, especially with the hard work she’s put in over the years.” Hoffman, who led Indiana with 18 points, did it all with a sprained right shoulder. She left the game with 7:21 left and returned with 3:40 to play. “My shoulder just popped out and went back in,” Hoffman said. “It’s just going to hurt.” Catchings had 14 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists, Briann January scored 17 points, and Katie Douglas had 15. Cappie Pondexter led Phoenix with 23 points, and Le’coe Willingham added 17. Diana Taurasi, the league’s MVP, scored 18 points but shot 6-for-16 from the field. The lead seesawed throughout the fourth quarter. Hoffman’s long shot from the left corner put Indiana ahead in the final minute. The officials reviewed it to determine whether she was behind the arc and concluded it was a 2-pointer, giving Indiana an 86-85 lead. Pondexter rushed downcourt and missed a layup, and Catchings rebounded. Then Indiana missed twice in close but got the offensive rebound. January dribbled the ball out of bounds with 22 seconds left, though, to give Phoenix a final chance. Pondexter missed a short jumper, and Catchings went for the rebound. She tried to call timeout, but Willingham tied her up and a jump ball was called.

But if the team could just punch it in the end zone — an inability that’s a sign of a young team — the Tigers could be 5-0 right now. The ship is a little off course, but it’s just going to take one game to get it righted. ■ Don’t sleep on the Steamboat Springs boys soccer team. With a huge win

at Eagle Valley on Friday, Steamboat threw its hat into the ring of Western Slope League contention. The problem, if you call it that, has been finding goal scorers. The team has a return trip to Battle Mountain — the current league leader — on the horizon and welcomes back Eagle Valley for a home game. If the Sailors can notch victories in both those contests, a league title is right there. — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail lgraham@steamboatpilot.com

the two were used to running with the lead pack. Now, the biggest difference the two see is running in the middle or the back of the pack. It’s a change, but each said it’s a change they expected. “It’s hard to pick up from the back to get up toward the front,” Long said. “It’s a completely different experience.” Cutter and Long decided years ago that they wanted to run in college. Along with the help of Brittany’s father, Greg Long, the two have trained in a college-esque environment for several years. Greg Long, who ran in college, designed workout plans to allow the two to get to the next level. During each summer, the two would put in long miles in preparation for fall.

The Dallas Cowboys’ DeMarcus Ware can’t catch the Denver Broncos’ Brandon Marshall who scores a go-ahead touchdown during the second half of play at Invesco Field in Denver on Sunday. The Broncos won, 17-10.

the best in the business.” Sure enough, Romo, ineffective in the second half when the Cowboys’ first five drives ended in four punts and an interception by Bailey, found Hurd for a 53-yard gain on fourth-and-3 to the Broncos 20-yard line with a minute left. The Cowboys reached the 2 with 9 seconds left. Romo spiked the ball on second-andgoal, then Bailey knocked away

a high pass intended for Hurd before swatting away the last one that was right on the money. “That surprised me,” Broncos safety Brian Dawkins said. “Both times that surprised me. To challenge a Hall of Famer, still doing what he does? You saw what he did on that beautiful pick on the sideline. So that surprised me that they continued to go at Champ. I’m glad they did.”

zigzagged his way into the end zone, Marshall and McDaniels have reconciled. On the other sideline, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, coach Wade Phillips and cornerback Terence Newman were swearing a flag should have been thrown on Marshall for offensive pass interference. “I couldn’t have played that play any better,” Newman said. “I could have sworn it was going to be a penalty. He grabbed my jersey and threw me to the side. If that wasn’t a hold, I don’t know what is. I tried to grab him back. I figured either way, we were both going to be called for holding. But the refs didn’t see it.” Marshall grabbed the ball off the top of Newman’s helmet at the 25-yard line, then avoided three more tacklers on his way for the score. Even then, Marshall was nervous. “Going back to Pop Warner I’ve made a bunch of plays like that really didn’t mean anything because we end up losing the game,” Marshall said. “We knew their 2-minute offense is one of

Al-Qaida threat downplayed Security adviser criticizes commander’s plea for more troops Lolita C. Baldor

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON

A top U.S. commander’s public plea for more troops in Afghanistan prompted a mild rebuke Sunday from the White House national security adviser, as the administration heads into a second week of intensive negotiations about its evolving Afghan strategy. Retired Gen. James Jones said decisions about how best to stabilize Afghanistan and beat back the insurgency must extend beyond troop levels to development and governance. And the request by Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, for as many as 40,000 more troops is just one of three key elements advisers must consider as they meet this week to plot the way ahead. He added that it is “bet-

ter for military advice to come up through the chain of command,” rather than off a public stage, referring to McChrystal’s speech in London last week making a case for more troops. But Jones also beat back suggestions that the open campaign could jeopardize the general’s job. McChrystal “is in it for the long haul,” Jones said. “I don’t think this is an issue.” Jones comments came amid growing government fissures about whether to send thousands of additional forces to the fight, and just hours after militant forces overwhelmed U.S. troops at two outposts near the Pakistan border, killing eight Americans. Obama’s senior advisers are set to meet twice this week to debate the Afghan strategy, juggling political pressure from the left to scale back combat troops with arguments from military

leaders, including Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that additional forces are needed to secure the country and enable government and economic development advancements. Jones said Afghanistan is not in imminent danger of falling to the Taliban, and he downplayed fears that the insurgency could set up a renewed sanctuary for alQaida. McChrystal has said insurgents are gaining ground and the U.S. is in danger of failing unless more forces are sent to the fight. “I don’t foresee the return of the Taliban. Afghanistan is not in imminent danger of falling,” Jones said. “The alQaida presence is very diminished. The maximum estimate is less than 100 operating in the country, no bases, no ability to launch attacks on either us or our allies.”

America on sale

It’s a great time to buy for US consumers Rachel Beck

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK

There has never been a better time to be a consumer. America is on sale. The Great Recession has caused massive job losses and hardship for millions, but it also has fostered a shoppers’ paradise. Anyone who still has the means to spend can find unheard of deals. Prices on everything from clothes to coffee to cat food are dropping, some faster than they have in half a century. Items rarely discounted — like Tiffany engagements rings — are now. The two biggest purchases most people make — homes and new cars — are selling at steep price reductions. “This is the new normal,” says Donald Keprta, president of Dominick’s, a supermarket chain in the Midwest, which just cut prices by as much as 30 percent on thousands of items. “We aren’t going back.” Consumers such as Karen Wilmes, a mother of two in Hopkinton, R.I., relish the steals. During a recent trip to Shaw’s Supermarkets, she bought a basketful of goods, including Eggo waffles, Kleenex tissues and Betty Crocker cake mix.

The retail price: $63.89. Wilmes paid $7.31 by buying items on sale and using coupons. “The deals out there are unbelievable,” says Wilmes, 36, who writes the Frugal Rhode Island Mama blog, which tracks local and national bargains. “We can put the money I save toward something else.” And she’s doing just that, but only when she can find another deal. Wilmes and her husband recently bought a Samsung television from Best Buy’s Web site for $1,299, about $300 less than she found at other stores. She also got free delivery and another $13 back from ebates. com, which receives commissions from online retailers for directing customers their way. What’s happening now has been building for years. WalMart Stores introduced “everyday low prices” many years ago. Amazon.com redefined the idea of bargain prices during the late 1990s when it helped introduce online shopping. After the 2001 recession, automakers introduced zero-percent financing to boost sales. McDonald’s “Dollar Meals” made fast food even cheaper. But until the Great Recession came along, consumers hadn’t seen anything yet.

President Barack Obama will focus “at the right time” on how to overturn the “don’t ask, don’t tell” ban on gays serving openly in the military, his national security adviser said Sunday. “I don’t think it’s going to be — it’s not years, but I think it will be teed up appropriately,” James Jones said. Obama The Democratic-led Congress is considering repealing the 1993 law. Action isn’t expected on the issue until early next year. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., recently wrote Obama and Defense Secretary Robert Gates asked to share their views and recommendations on the contentious policy. In Sept. 24 letters, Reid also asked for a review of the cases of two U.S. officers who were discharged from the military because of their sexuality. “At a time when we are fighting two wars, I do not believe

we can afford to discharge any qualified individual who is willing to serve our country,” Reid wrote. Jones said Obama “has an awful lot on his desk. I know this is an issue that he intends to take on at the appropriate time. And he already has signaled that to the Defense Department. The Defense Department is doing the things it has to do to prepare, but at the right time, I’m sure the president will take it on.” As a candidate, Obama signaled support for repealing the law. To the disappointment of gay-rights supporters, he has yet to made a move since taking office in January. The White House has said it will not stop the military from dismissing gays and lesbians who acknowledge their sexuality. Last year, 634 members of the military were discharged for being gay, or 0.045 percent of the active-duty U.S. force, according to an Aug. 14 congressional report. The largest number of gays who were ousted under the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy came in 2001, when 1,227 were discharged, or 0.089 of the force.
