Their applications were vetted by a committee that included parents, teachers and the principals from both schools. The first round of grants from the fund will support items ranging from a pottery lesson to a video project of famous Coloradans. “It was definitely interesting to see what requests came in, and I’m excited to see where it all goes,” Johnston said.

It took Hillary Jordan 15 years to imagine the 31-yearold comedian who would see his wife electrocuted to death by her underwire bra in the short novel “Aftermirth.” The work is more comedy than tragedy, Jordan told a crowd of more than 100 people Sunday morning at Bud Werner Memo-

Benaron told the crowd that she doesn’t shy away from clicking the link that tells Amazon. com that she doesn’t find a personal attack on her as an author a “helpful” review of her awardwinning book.

more serious than others, were well received by the large crowd that attended the library’s event billed as a bonus to Steamboat’s 20th annual Literary Sojourn. The authors talked about their battles to keep their desired book titles, the power of their words, and about evolving plot lines and the meticulous research needed to write from the point of view of another race, another gender or in a different time. Several audience members left

feeling like they got a rare chance to travel deep inside of the minds of accomplished authors. “I really like the fact this became a gateway into someone’s mind,” Steamboat resident Beverly Lehrer-Brennan said after the talk. “It was good to hear where their stories came from.” Many in the audience also were fans of Jordan and Benaron’s dedication to writing to See authors, page 2

Both authors faced rejection prior to award Authors continued from 1 promote social justice. The authors said words are well positioned to bring about positive changes in society. “Literature has a unique power of showing you another person’s world to create empathy, the kind of empathy that over time does promote change,” Jordan said. Jordan and Benaron are recipients of the Bellwether Prize, a literature award founded by Barbara Kingsolver in 2000 that is awarded every other year to work of socially engaged literature. Jordan received the award in 2006 for her book “Mudbound,” and Benaron received the award in 2010 for her novel “Running the Rift.” “Mudbound” follows a

woman struggling to raise her children on a Mississippi Delta farm in the Jim Crow Era. “Running the Rift” follows a Rwandan boy who aspires to earn Olympic gold for running. The authors’ discussion Sunday was attended by literary enthusiasts, English teachers and some community members who just wanted to know a little more about the awards they see on book covers. For nearly two hours, the writers talked about their books, how they title them and how they still prefer paperback to Nook. “I need that feeling of a book on my hands,” Benaron said when asked what she thought of the publishing going digital. “I want to dog-ear the pages. I want to mark it. I want a book. I want to make that book mine.” Each author said they received

“Literature has a unique power of showing you another person’s world to create empathy, the kind of empathy that over time does promote change.” Hillary Jordan Bellwether Prize recipient

plenty of rejection letters from literary agents before their books earned the prestigious award. They then talked about how the Bellwether Prize has dramatically changed their lives. “It changed the trajectory of my publishing career,” Jordan said, adding she didn’t set out to become an activist writer.

What: Steamboat Springs School Board meeting When: 4 p.m. today Where: Strawberry Park Elementary School, 39620 Amethyst Drive

Johnston, along with nine other parents, founded the Challenge Fund in January and the fundraising drive replaced the elementary schools’ more conventional annual fundraisers that included bake, cookie dough and gift wrap sales. In June, organizers of the fund said 131 households, or about 18 percent of the total households who have children attending the local elementary schools, donated to the fund that is being distributed equally between Strawberry Park and Soda Creek. Contributions from businesses accounted for about 20 percent of the fund-

Johnston said the grant vetting committee is planning to accept more applications this month and next month to finish awarding the $52,000.

At the corner of Walton Creek Road and South Lincoln Avenue, you may have noticed a new sign — Yampa Valley Medical Park. Formerly known as the Fagen Building, Yampa Valley Medical Park now is home to two services of Yampa Valley Medical Center: Integrated Health and YampaWorks. “Both Integrated Health and YampaWorks have grown tremendously in the past year and they needed more space,” said Karen McRight, senior director of marketing and business development. “We’re pleased we found such a spacious and convenient location. So far, the reception from our patients has been overwhelmingly positive.” Integrated Health is a relatively new service of YVMC. It offers a range of practices including acupuncture, massage, mind-body counseling, yoga, nutritional counseling and Qigong. The term “integrated” describes medical practices that, while retaining many of the characteristics and strengths of biomedicine, also embrace the more holistic concepts and methods of complementary and alternative medicine practices. All Integrated Health staff members are certified and licensed in their respective disciplines. “We serve clients with a wide range of backgrounds, needs and diagnoses,” said Angela Melzer, director of integrated health. “Some of our patients are looking to take a more active, alternative and preventive role in their health. Other patients are managing complicated illnesses and they find the combination of traditional medicine and

complimentary and alternative therapies very beneficial.” Melzer points out that many patients embrace more than one service on their path to wellness. For example, cancer patients have benefited from acupuncture, massage and counseling services. Cardiac rehab patients have embraced mind-body counseling as well as nutritional counseling services. Another benefit of the new location is that Integrated Health is able to offer a variety of classes to community members. New classes being offered this month include Mindfulness Meditation, Qigong and Breathe Easy Yoga. Community members may purchase individual classes for $10 each or buy an eight-session punch card for $64. Part of YVMC for many years, YampaWorks provides occupational health services to employers and individuals in the region. Under the direction of Frederick Scherr, MD, the region’s only board-certified occupational and environmental medicine physician, YampaWorks provides comprehensive work injury management, pre-employment exams, drug screening, rehabilitation services, laboratory services, diagnostic services and treatment of acute conditions. “At YampaWorks, we have several goals. The first is to provide superior care to injured employees with a team approach,” said Ted Morton, director of YampaWorks. “Additionally, we strive to pro-

“Both Integrated Health and YampaWorks have grown tremendously in the past year and they needed more space. We’re pleased we found such a spacious and convenient location.” Karen McRight Yampa Valley Medical Center senior director of marketing and business development

vide employers with tools to prevent injuries, increase productivity and lower health care costs.” Some clients of YampaWorks have benefited by services from Integrated Health. Last year, a construction worker who was injured on the job in Meeker was able to use the occupational therapy services of YampaWorks along with the counseling services of Integrated Health. Morton points out that having both services in the same location will make it easier for patients to access care. Morton especially is pleased with the new move. “The new location is not only a more spacious and comfortable environment, it is more convenient,” he said. “We’ve expanded our services so that our clients can get everything they need in one place.” Integrated Health and YampaWorks are located at Yampa Valley Medical Park, 3001 S. Lincoln Ave., Suite A, in Steamboat Springs. Integrated Health can be reached at 970875-2731. YampaWorks can be reached at 970-875-2750.

Obama’s second-term blahs Clarence Page

Tribune Media Services

After scraping around for something — anything — good to say about President Barack Obama’s debate performance, I came up with this much: At least he didn’t look at his watch. That disastrous gesture by incumbent President George H. W. Bush near the end of his 1992 debate with Bill Clinton and Ross Perot pretty much sunk whatever re-election chances he still had. Page Obama suffered from the same sort of bored, disengaged, hohum presentation at his face-off with Republican nominee Mitt Romney in Denver. Call it the second-term blahs. Running for re-election, incumbent presidents completely fall out of practice. After four years of being surrounded by deferential yes-men and yes-women, presidents simply forget what it is like to face somebody who pointedly is accusing them of wrecking the country. Did Obama forget that he was not standing on that stage to hold a civil conversation? Televised presidential debates are political theater. What you say is less important than how you say

it, especially to the estimated 5 percent or so of voters who still are undecided. Many, by nature, are low-information voters or, sometimes, slow-information voters. It never hurts to repeat, repeat, repeat your talking points to this crowd, no matter how many times you have heard yourself say them. Romney understands. With his polls sinking in the battleground states, he cheerfully threw everything that he had into the fight — plus more than a few things that he did not have, such as facts that were on his side. For example, when Romney raised his by-now-familiar charge that, “On Medicare for current retirees, he’s cutting $716 billion from the program,” I thought Obama would hit it out of the park. He would at least, I thought, note that the cost savings was not coming at the expense of Medicare beneficiaries. It is coming from insurance companies, hospitals and other providers. The insurers and providers agreed to the cuts in return for the money they will gain from Obamacare’s reducing the number of uninsured patients they currently care for. Here’s a specific way that Obama helps curb Medicare’s rising costs while expanding health care coverage. Romney’s running mate Rep. Paul Ryan was impressed enough to include

it in his much-touted budget proposal. Romney rejects it, without any specifics as to how he would replace it. That’s not the only cost Romney is vague about. For example, he flatly rejected Obama’s assertion that Romney’s 20 percent across-the-board tax cut would cost $5 trillion during the next decade — and raise taxes on the middle class while giving a cut to the wealthy. “I don’t have a $5 trillion tax cut,” Romney said. “What I’ve said,” he continued, “is I won’t put in place a tax cut that adds to the deficit.” Yet he offered no estimate of his own to counter Obama’s number as to cost or who would bear its burden. The $5 trillion figure comes from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, which says Romney’s numbers don’t begin to add up without imposing a tax increase of $2,000 per household on middleincome earners. Details, details. And Romney flipped enough flipflips to make inviting targets for zingers, had Obama cared to zing a few. For example, after repeatedly promising to repeal, repeal, repeal Obamacare, he now says he wants to keep the popular parts like covering pre-existing conditions and children up to age 26. Yet he See Page, page 9

It could be his party Ross Douthat

The New York Times

In countries with parliamentary systems, political parties rarely lack for formal leadership. When the British Tories or Canadian Liberals are out of power, they have an official prime minister-inwaiting standing by, and a “shadow cabinet,” as well. There’s jockeying for influence behind the scenes, but there’s always somebody out front who can claim to speak for the party, setting its agenda and making Douthat a case to the country as a whole. Not so in the United States. Here, parties in their out-of-power years tend to slip into low-grade civil wars, with rival camps inside Washington and various warlords — er, governors — squabbling on the periphery. Not coincidentally, the parties tend to look their worst during these periods: fractious and solipsistic, intellectually confused or ideologically extreme, with opportunists grabbing for the megaphone at every opportunity. The Republican Party has been effectively leaderless for almost six years, ever since the 2006 midterm elections made George W. Bush’s lame-duck status official. John McCain was so mistrusted by

conservatives that he probably would have felt like an interim figure even if he hadn’t gone down to defeat in 2008, and after the general Republican rout that year, the party’s public image suddenly was defined more by media personalities — from Rush Limbaugh to Glenn Beck — than by any of its elected officials. The Limbaugh-Beck moment passed, but the vacuum remained — and for most of his two years of campaigning, as a primary candidate and then as the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney conspicuously failed to fill it. He seemed content to take his party as he found it, and to conform rather than to lead: in the primaries because conformity was the safest way to reassure his critics, and in the general election because his campaign apparently thought that a generic Mr. Republican would be able to glide to victory in the fall. That finally changed in the first presidential debate. In 90 prime-time minutes, the country had a glimpse of what our politics might look like if the Republican Party actually had a leader again. What Romney executed Wednesday night was not just a simple pivot to the center, as much of the post-debate analysis suggested. Pivot he certainly did — stressing bipartisanship and touting his record as the moderate governor of a lib-

eral state, backing away from the more implausible spending cuts implied by his budget promises, explicitly breaking with the idea that upper-bracket tax cuts can be a self-financing free lunch. But this wasn’t some sort of Sister Souljah moment, where Romney called out his fellow conservatives in order to curry favor with the center. Rather, what he did was clarify, elevate and translate. He clarified what kind of tax reformer he would be, by promising that revenue neutrality would take priority rather than sweeping cuts for the rich — a premise that plenty of Republicans already are happy to accept. He elevated an argument that’s increasingly popular among conservative wonks — that the Dodd-Frank financial reform perpetuates “too big to fail” — and used it to make a populist case against the president. And he translated the basic free-market vision to a nonideological audience, by talking more about decent jobs than heroic job creators, and more about the struggling middle class than about the supposedly persecuted John Galts. This is the role that an effective party leader ought to play. Media fantasies notwithstanding, you can’t lead a party by repudiating its base or campaigning against its reigning ideology.

offers no indication as to how he would pay for the unpopular parts, such as the universal mandate that pays for the good parts. Most viewers probably thought, as I did, that Romney hogged more time in this

largely free-flowing debate. Yet, it turned out that Obama grabbed almost 4 1/2 minutes more than Romney, according to a political website at the University of Minnesota. Who would have guessed? Yet Romney managed to squeeze in 541 more words, according to the Atlantic Wire. In short, Rom-

ney won the night by making better use of his time — and not just in his word count. Obama’s campaign did an excellent job of arguments like these on the day after the debate. Too bad for Obama that he didn’t make more during the debate. Time is precious.

Republican Party on brink of transition


more up for grabs than at any point since the Reagan revolution. The Reagan nostalgia, the fears of looming socialism, the paranoia about a shiftless 47 percent: They are all symptomatic of a party on the brink of transition rather than one incapable of change. Republicans seem to be clinging to the past mostly because their leaders haven’t shown them what they should stand for in the present.

lead by channeling the base’s passions in a constructive direction, and by reinterpreting the party’s ideology to meet the challenges of the present day. One debate does not such a leader make. But at the very least, the fact that Romney’s strategy worked so effectively last Wednesday — that it made him seem mainstream and appealing while also winning him plaudits from almost every sort of

conservative — suggests that the Republican Party actually can be led, and that its politicians don’t have to be prisoners of talking points and groupthink. Indeed, the party actually may be ripe for such leadership. Cut through the Kabuki narratives on the contemporary right — the grass-roots versus the establishment, the True Conservatives versus the RINOs — and you’ll find that what conservatism actually stands for, issue by issue and policy by policy, is

The Steamboat Springs Public Works Department is reminding residents how to prevent frozen pipes during cold weather: ■ Know the location of your water shut-off and test it regularly. In most single-family homes, the shut-off valve is in the basement or the crawlspace where the water pipe enters the house. ■ Winterize unheated or vacant buildings to avoid property damage and water loss. ■ Insulate water pipes that may be vulnerable to the cold or have caused problems in the past. Pipes close to exterior walls or in unheated basements can be wrapped with insulation. ■ During a deep freeze (minus 5 degrees or below), open cabinet doors that lead to exposed pipes (such as access doors for sinks), so that household air can warm pipes. Keep garage doors shut, and keep your thermostat set above 65 degrees. ■ If you think a pipe already has frozen, thaw the pipe as soon as possible or call a plumber for help. If you do it yourself, shut off the water and slowly thaw. A hair dryer trained at the frozen area of the pipe is appropriate. A blow-

Deb Babcock play and natural areas within your yard. There are two types of mulch: organic and inorganic. Organic mulches are made of natural substances such as bark, wood chips, leaves, pine needles or grass clippings. They attract insects that birds eat. They decompose throughout time. Although they do help bring some nutrients to the soil, they should not be considered substitutes for fertilizer. Actually, as organic mulches decompose, some of the nitrogen in the soil is diverted from use by the plants and instead is used to break down the mulch. As a result, you may need to add nitrogen to your soil to ensure your plants obtain adequate nutrients. Inorganic mulches include gravel, pebbles, black plastic and landscape fabric. They do not decompose. When should mulch be applied? It depends on what benefits you want from mulch. Mulch applied in the fall to protect fall transplants will keep soil temperatures above freezing longer into the fall, which gives the plants more time to generate root growth. Spring mulch often is used to reduce frost heave and

delay too early spring growth of early blooming bulbs such as crocus and squill. To obtain the most benefits, Yampa Valley gardeners should mulch in the fall to protect the roots of plants when the weather turns frosty and again in the spring after the soil has warmed and begun to dry from snow melt. Except where plastic or fabric is used alone or with chips or stones, mulch should be applied at a depth of three to four inches. Some mulches, particularly straw and loose leaves, may harbor rodents. So do not place this type of mulch any closer than six inches to the base of woody plants. The rodents may nest in it and chew the bark of your plant, killing it. Mulching is one of the best things you can do to maintain healthy plants in your garden. It’s something that occurs naturally in nature when fallen leaves, needles, twigs, pieces of bark, spent flower blossoms, fallen fruit and other organic material drops from plants. So help your plants make it through the winter by applying a blanket of mulch to your garden now before the snow comes. Deb Babcock is a volunteer Master Gardener through the CSU Extension Routt County.

ell, we’ve had our first frost and the plants are retreating into their shells, so to speak, to weather our cold winter. While plants that grow here generally are pretty hardy and designed to withstand our cold winters, we can make the winter easier on them by providing a blanket of mulch. Mulch is any material that provides protection and improves the soil when applied to the soil surface. Even snow can be considered a mulch because it protects your plants from freezing in the cold air, it keeps the ground from freezing, and it waters your plants when the snow melts. That is why we often recommend leaving your most delicate shrubs unpruned for the winter so that the branches can capture some of this snow. Other benefits of mulch include: ■ Weed prevention ■ Moisture conservation in the soil ■ Soil temperature stabilization ■ Improved aesthetics of the landscape ■ Reduction of soil erosion on slopes ■ Improved air and water movement to the roots ■ Improved soil structure and nutrient availability ■ Protection of shallow-rooted plants from freeze damage Mulch also can be used to create trails, garden walkways,

Butch Cassidy relative entertains at museum

and are presented annually to one local business an individual business leader and a young professional who stand out as leaders in the business community. members

Hurry, the nomination deadline is Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012.

Norman Rockwell’s work wasn’t the only thing bringing crowds to the Museum of Northwest Colorado on Saturday. A large contingent from Craig and the surrounding area also came to meet and speak with Bill Betenson, a great-grand-nephew to Butch Cassidy and author of the new book, “Butch Cassidy, My Uncle: a Family Portrait.” Betenson signed books, did a short presentation about his book and research and met with visitors at the museum from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Rockwell’s work has been on display throughout the summer and will be available at the museum through Nov. 2. During his presentation, Betenson spoke about how his fascination with Butch Cassidy began, when he attended the movie premiere of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” at age 4 with his great-grandmother, Lula Parker. Lula was Cassidy’s younger sister. Cassidy’s real name was Robert Leroy Parker. “I remember watching and thinking that was the coolest thing

in the world,” Betenson said. Eventually, Betenson would turn that passion for Cassidy into 22 years of research and a book. He also gave a quick account of Cassidy’s life. As would be the case with many people today, Cassidy’s family did not approve of his outlaw lifestyle, according to Betenson’s conversations with Lula Parker. “He had a devout Mormon mother (Annie Parker), and she walked the field of their ranch crying of heartbreak over her outlaw sons,” Betenson said. Betenson was asked a wide variety of questions, including what he had heard about certain Butch Cassidy rumors or what he knew about Cassidy’s dealings in Wyoming. But the most famous Cassidy mystery was brought up most of the time. Many think Cassidy died with Sundance in Bolivia after going to South America. But Lula Parker claimed he returned to the United States. While Betenson chooses to believe his great-grandmother’s story, he acknowledged the truth still is unknown. “That’s a mystery and debate that will probably go on all our lives and beyond,” he said.

After debate, poll Boulder’s Cool Energy shows tight race awaits its big break Kristen Wyatt

Asian Fusion Food & Sushi Bar


Boosted by a strong performance in the first presidential debate in Denver, Republican Mitt Romney edged closer to President Barack Obama in a Colorado poll released Sunday. Obama clung to the lead in a poll commissioned by the University of Denver, which hosted the debate. The poll showed Obama leading Romney among likely voters, 47 percent to 43 percent. The poll had a 4-point margin of error. An earlier poll, released Sept. 20, showed a slightly wider lead for the president, 50 percent to 45 percent among likely voters. That poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 points and was conducted by NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist. In the DU poll, more than 80 percent of the likely voters said they watched the first debate, and they overwhelmingly thought Romney did better. Sixty-eight percent said Romney did better than Obama. Two more debates are planned. The poll showed a tossup for the marijuana legalization question. Fifty percent planned to vote for legalizing pot, 40 percent planned to vote against it, and 10 percent weren’t sure. Coloradans were more united on the question of same-sex


couples. Seventy-three percent supported legal recognition of same-sex relationships, either marriage or civil unions. Earlier this year, Republicans in the state Legislature blocked a Democratic-sponsored civil unions measure. The DU telephone survey included 604 likely voters. It was conducted Thursday and Friday by Selzer & Co. of Des Moines, Iowa. On immigration, Coloradans favored allowing illegal immigrants to stay, keep their jobs and eventually apply for legal status. Sixty-three percent said they preferred that position on immigration, with 31 percent saying illegal immigrants should be deported to their home country. Asked about illegal immigrants who came here as children, the margin slightly widened, with 68 percent favoring allowing those illegal immigrants to stay and 24 percent opposing the new policy allowing illegal immigrants brought as children to obtain work permits and not face deportation. Coloradans were more divided on the new health care law. Thirty-eight percent said the law should be repealed. Thirty-four percent said it contains good provisions but may need adjustments. And 16 percent said the law is good and should remain as is.






After years of research and development, Boulder-based Cool Energy Inc. is waiting to hear if it has landed its first major customer for its Stirling engines that turn heat into electricity. Schneider Electric is testing Cool Energy’s technology before deciding whether it will incorporate it in its program to provide affordable, reliable, cleaner power for people across the world without access to electricity. Cool Energy’s technology can use heat such as solar thermal energy or waste heat put out by power generators to create electricity at temperatures of around 200 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit, which is far lower than other Stirling engines. While Cool Energy does have some revenue and early adopters of what it offers, it hopes testing goes well enough that Schneider Electric could become its most significant account to date after about six years in business. Cool Energy isn’t profitable yet and is at the stage where it needs capital to grow and produce at high volumes so it can further bring prices down, CEO Sam Weaver said.

Police: Backpack found likely belongs to lost girl WESTMINSTER

Police in Colorado said a backpack found in the town of Superior likely is linked to a 10-year-old girl who has been missing since Friday. Westminster police said the backpack was found on a sidewalk on a street about 6 miles from the suburban Denver home of Jessica Ridgeway, who was last seen Friday as she walked to a park where she meets classmates before school. An Amber Alert has been issued. Police would not discuss the contents of the bag but said they

think it belongs to the girl. They also said the item has led investigators to expand their search for the girl to the Rock Creek subdivision of Superior. Jessica weighs 80 pounds and is 4-feet-10 with blue eyes and blond shoulder-length hair.

CenturyLink, union fail to reach labor agreement DENVER

CenturyLink and the union representing 13,000 workers in 13 states in the West and Midwest have failed to reach a contract agreement, but have signed onto a day-to-day extension of the expired pact. The Communications Workers of America made the announcement after the existing labor contract expired at 11:59 p.m. Saturday. CWA spokesman Al Kogler said in a statement that negotiations will continue and workers will remain on the job during the extension.

DU marketing tries to spread brand through SNL DENVER

The University of Denver’s marketing team had a feeling Saturday Night Live might parody the first presidential debate. So a few months ago, as they planned how to promote the debate that DU hosted Wednesday, they decided they’d send some DU paraphernalia to SNL’s producers. Last week they sent off a box of DU banners, T-shirts, coffee cups, logos and aerial footage of the campus — everything they thought the producers might need for a debate sketch. The producers acknowledged getting the box but didn’t promise any mentions of the school. In its opening sketch Saturday, SNL mentioned the university and showed a scene from campus but didn’t end up using any of the props.

Obama raises California cash WASHINGTON

Fresh off his strongest fundraising month this year, President Barack Obama is looking to raise millions of dollars from celebrities and wealthy donors in California with just one month left in a tightening race. The two-day swing through the solidly Democratic state highlights the critical role that fundraising will play in the campaign’s final weeks as Obama and his Republican rival, Mitt Romney, escalate their barrage of television ads in competitive states like Ohio. The president is to return there Tuesday. Romney, campaigning in upfor-grabs Florida, sought to build on the momentum from a debate performance last week that even Democrats conceded was “masterful.” The Republican told a crowd of about 12,000 in Port St. Lucie that he had enjoyed himself, ticking off a list of Obama shortcomings he said he had exposed during the first debate. “Now of course, days later, we’re hearing his excuses,” Romney said. “And next January we’ll be watching him leave the White House for the last time.” As Romney finished speaking, someone in the crowd of supporters behind him held up a giant Israeli flag alongside smaller American flags, underscoring the amplified role that foreign affairs and the Middle

East is playing as the presidential race draws to a close. Romney on Monday plans a major foreign policy address at the Virginia Military Institute, intended to throw Obama back on his heels over his handling of unrest in Libya and elsewhere.

prompt tax hikes or deep cuts to education and other programs. The political and legal fights challenge the clout of public-sector unions and test the venerable idea that while state jobs pay less than private-sector employment, they come with the guarantee of early retirement and generous benefits.

$1.4T in states’ pension fights are foreshadowed

Pharmacy issues wide recall after outbreak



Retired social worker Jim Gillis was told his $36,000 Rhode Island state pension would increase by $1,100 next year to keep up with inflation. But lawmakers suspended annual increases, leaving Gillis wondering how he’ll pay medical bills and whether he’d been betrayed by his former employer. “When you’re working, you’re told you’ll get certain things, and you retire believing that to be the case,” Gillis said. He and other retirees are challenging the pension changes in a court battle that’s likely to have national implications as other states follow Rhode Island’s lead. Cities and states across the country are shoring up battered retirement plans by reducing promised benefits to public workers and retirees. All told, states need $1.4 trillion to fulfill their pension obligations. It’s a yawning chasm that threatens to wreck government budgets and


The pharmacy that distributed a steroid linked to an outbreak of fungal meningitis has issued a voluntary recall of all of its products, calling the move a precautionary measure. The New England Compounding Center announced the recall Saturday. The company said in a news release that the move was taken out of an abundance of caution because of the risk of contamination. It reported there is no indication that any other products have been contaminated. The Food and Drug Administration previously had told health professionals not to use any products distributed by the center. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention posted updated figures to its website Sunday showing there are 91 confirmed cases of the rare form of fungal meningitis. The outbreak spans nine states and has killed at least seven people.

Rockies manager Jim Tracy resigns Arnie Stapleton

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck throws a pass during the first half. The Colts defeated the Green Bay Packers, 30-27, on Sunday in Indianapolis.

Luck rallies past Packers The Associated Press


Andrew Luck capped a second-half comeback by throwing a 4-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne with 35 seconds to go that gave Indianapolis a stunning 30-27 victory against Green Bay on Sunday in the Colts’ first game without coach Chuck Pagano. Green Bay (2-3) had a chance to force overtime, but Mason Crosby missed a 51-yard field goal with 3 seconds to go. Luck then took a knee and time ran out and the team celebrated. Missing was Pagano, who is in a hospital undergoing treatment for leukemia that recently was diagnosed. Luck came through with just what Pagano wanted — getting the Colts (2-2) to .500. And they did it despite trailing 21-3 at halftime. After Adam Vinatieri gave Indy its first lead at 22-21 with a 28-yard field goal, Aaron Rodgers threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to James Jones to

NFL ROUNDUP make it 27-22 with 4:30 left before the Colts rallied.

Patriots 31, Broncos 21 FOXBOROUGH, Mass.

Tom Brady won his latest showdown with Peyton Manning with the help of a careerhigh 151 yards rushing from Stevan Ridley. In the 13th meeting between the star quarterbacks, and first since Manning left the Indianapolis Colts, Brady directed four scoring marches of at least 80 yards and the Patriots rushed for 252 yards. Brady improved to 9-4 against Manning, He completed 23 of 31 passes for 223 yards and one touchdown and ran for another. Manning was 31 of 44 for 345 yards and three touchdowns but lost a fumble on a third-quarter sack. The fumble led to Ridley’s 8-yard run that put the Patriots (3-2) ahead 31-7 with about five minutes left in the third quarter.

Manning then threw touchdown passes of 2 yards to Eric Decker and 5 yards to Brandon Stokley but Denver (2-3) lost a fumble with 3:42 remaining.

Falcons 24, Redskins 17 LANDOVER, Md.

Michael Turner ran 13 yards for the go-ahead score with 2:46 to play, and Atlanta knocked Robert Griffin III out of the game. The Falcons are 5-0 for the first time in franchise history. Matt Ryan completed 34 of 52 passes for 345 yards as Atlanta handed Washington (2-3) its eighth consecutive home loss. Griffin left the game in the third quarter after being hit in the head on a sack by linebacker Sean Weatherspoon. Coach Mike Shanahan said RG3 has a “mild concussion.” Kirk Cousins took over and threw a 77-yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss to give the Redskins a fourth-quarter lead, but the fourth-round pick

also threw two interceptions in the final two minutes.

Steelers 16, Eagles 14 PITTSBURGH

Shaun Suisham hit a 34-yard field goal as time expired. The Eagles (3-2) took the lead on a 2-yard touchdown pass from Michael Vick to Brent Celek with 6:33 remaining, but the Steelers responded by driving 64 yards, including a pair of key third-down conversions by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, to set up the winning kick. Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall ran for 81 yards and a touchdown in his first game of the season as the Steelers (2-2) avoided their first two-game losing streak in three years. Vick completed 20 of 30 passes for 175 yards and two scores but fumbled twice for the Eagles, who couldn’t keep their string of narrow earlyseason victories going. See NFL, page 17

Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy resigned Sunday, stepping down after the team set a franchise record for losses. The Rockies said a search for Tracy’s replacement would begin immediately but they have no time frame for making a hire. Colorado finished last in the NL West this year while going 64-98. Tracy was promoted from bench coach to manager in May 2009. He was voted the NL Manager of the Year that season after guiding Colorado into the playoffs. The Rockies went 294-308 under Tracy. “I was surprised,” Bill Geivett, the team’s director of major league operations, told The Associated Press. “You know, Jim and I go back a long time. We worked together for three different clubs. “Basically, Tracy called me and told me his intentions and we talked about a lot of different things, but he had already made up his mind,” said Geivett, who also worked with Tracy in Montreal and Los Angeles. Energized by the young players and the challenge of fixing things, Tracy had said repeatedly the last several weeks that he wanted to fulfill the final year on his contract in 2013. But he changed his mind after meeting with Geivett for several hours Friday and then mulling those discussions during the weekend. Asked why Tracy resigned, Geivett said: “I don’t think there was any one thing in particular that seemed to stand out, but you’d have to ask him that.” Tracy didn’t return phone calls and texts from the AP. Geivett said he wanted Tracy to return next season. “I mean, that’s how I started our meeting on Friday, that he was the manager of the club,” Geivett said. “Like I said, it was surprising.” Geivett, however, didn’t try to change Tracy’s mind. “His decision was made when he called me and I respected that,” Geivett said.

Roundup of Sunday’s football games CINCINNATI

Reshad Jones intercepted Andy Dalton’s overthrown pass at midfield with 1:22 left, preserving a win that ended two weeks of miserable, last-minute finishes for Miami. Miami (2-3) had dropped its past two games in overtime. The Dolphins held on against the Bengals (3-2), who never got anything going consistently on offense and wasted a chance for a tighter finish.

49Ers 45, Bills 3 SAN FRANCISCO

Giants 41, Browns 27 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.

Victor Cruz and Ahmad Bradshaw set career bests in leading New York Giants against winless Cleveland. Cruz caught three touchdown passes from Eli Manning covering 3, 7 and 28 yards, while Bradshaw surpassed his yardage on the ground for the season with a career-high 200. He had 132 entering the game. The Giants are 9-0 in games he has rushed for 100 yards or more. New York (3-2) also forced three turnovers, including Chase Blackburn’s interception in the end zone midway in the fourth quarter to clinch it.

Vikings 30, Titans 7 MINNEAPOLIS

Percy Harvin pounded his way through Tennessee’s defense for one touchdown rushing and another receiving for Minnesota. Harvin caught eight passes for 108 yards for the Vikings (4-1), who have given up a combined 33 points in winning three straight games. Christian Ponder threw his first two interceptions after 143 attempts without one, but he still finished 25 for 35 for 258 yards and two scores against the reeling Titans (1-4).


Winona’s your first stop on these frosty, fall mornings.

Bears 41, Jaguars 3 JACKSONVILLE, FLA.

Charles Tillman and Lance Briggs returned interceptions for touchdowns — their second in six days — and Chicago used stifling defense to overwhelm Jacksonville. The Bears (4-1) scored 38 unanswered points in the second half to win their third consecutive game. The streak has everything to do with defense. Chicago has returned five interceptions for touchdowns in the last three weeks. Tillman and Briggs returned two of the team’s five interceptions for touchdowns in Monday night’s 34-18 victory at Dallas. Safety Major Wright returned one the previous week against St. Louis.

Seahawks 16, Panthers 12 CHARLOTTE, N.C.

Russell Wilson threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate with 35 seconds left in the third quarter and Seattle came up with four sacks against Cam Newton.

Ray Rice ran for 101 yards and Justin Tucker made all three of his field goal attempts. Joe Flacco threw for 187 yards and was picked off once, but the Ravens (4-1) still were able to come up with enough points to beat the Chiefs (1-4), who turned it over four times. Matt Cassel threw for 92 yards, was intercepted twice and credited with two lost fumbles before leaving in the fourth quarter with what the Chiefs described as a head injury. Brady Quinn led Kansas City to another field goal by Ryan Succop.

Alex Smith threw for a season-high 303 yards and three touchdowns, Frank Gore ran for 106 yards and a score, and San Francisco amassed a franchise-record 621 yards. Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis each eclipsed 100 yards receiving to back Smith, who threw touchdown passes of 43, 28 and 10 yards and surpassed 300 yards passing for only the third time in his career.

Looking Back: Articles from our archives 25 YEARS AGO: County’s fire danger high in 1987

100 YEARS AGO: Routt hunter badly injured in 1912

The Routt National Forest reported in October 1987 that fire danger was “very high.” Local crew were fighting a fire in the Green Ridge area in South Routt, along with crew from Grand Junction and the White River National Forest district. A fire in the Greenville Mine area also broke out. The combination of very little precipitation in September that year caused the forests to reach a very dry state.

John Ross, known to many Routt County people in 1912, was badly injured by the accidental discharge of a rifle in the hands of Claude Reader, of Loveland. The soft-nose bullet from a .32-Special passed through the left leg at the knee joint, and the injury will probably result in the loss of that member. The Steamboat people who were in the party say that the experience of getting the wounded man into camp was one that would not be forgotten.


ANNUAL PET DAY Steamboat Today reader Lucas Kidd sent this photo of his friend Justyn who got this bull on a peice of private land outside of Cheyenne, Wyo.

Steamboat Today reader Lauren McLaughlin sent this photo of the Steamboat Springs Homeschool group that recently celebrated its annual Pet Day.
