Old Town residents Kevin Bennett and Cari Hermacinski are running against each other for the Steamboat Springs City Council District 1 seat.

Neighbor versus neighbor Polarizing Bennett seeks Hermacinski says record speaks for itself return to council


evin Bennett’s previous City Council service ended eight years ago, but the impacts of his tenure still resonate today — in capital projects, open space expansions and lasting partnerships — as well as in lingering anger and questions about his value to the community in another term at Centennial Hall. When it comes to Bennett, there is no shortage of disparity. What his supporters call a strong-minded personality rooted in building partnerships and a passion for the local community, his detractors call an overbearing asser-

It’s no secret that in a small town like Steamboat Springs, everybody knows everything about you. That can make balancing social and professional lives challenging for workers of any age, but especially for young employees learning how to build a career, Shari Harley said. “Word travels in a small town … so if you’re out late and you’re seen really inappropriately dressed, or you’re really drunk at an event, people make judgments about that — it’s not fair, but it’s what happens,” said Harley, a consultant in professional development and career management. “Everything makes an impression, and in a small town, you have to be very careful, unfortunately.” Harley is leading a work-

shop from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the Steamboat Springs Community Center to teach local professionals strategies to manage their reputation and build their careers. Harley, 38, is based in Denver. On her Web site,, she touts 15 years of experience in “developing talent in Fortune 50 companies.”

She said one of the top mistakes she sees is people failing to proactively advance their careers. “I think people wait to be discovered, and they wait for opportunities to come to them, thinking that if they work really hard and do good work, people will notice them — and it doesn’t work that way,” Harley said. “People who do well to develop their careers promote themselves in a way that doesn’t look like self-promoting, and that’s a skill.” Harley said one way to improve your reputation is to stop gossiping about others. “Gossip is really a killer of careers and organizational cultures, and in a small town, it’s pervasive,” she said.

Hermacinski: You need to be accountable

Join City Council Candidate Sunpie’s Friday, October 16th 4-6pm Paid for by the Committee to Elect Cari Hermacinski

Development issues Asked whether she enjoys the competitive nature of a political campaign, Hermacinski’s grin says it all. Before deciding whether to run for her current two-year, at-large seat or a fouryear District 1 seat, Hermacinski often said she wanted to run against the strongest candidate. A lawyer and small-business owner, Hermacinski said she loves to debate, but she was often frustrated two years ago when incumbent candidates and a particular political committee labeled her and other challengers pawns of the development community. Hermacinski was a city planning commissioner at the time. “I couldn’t find a case of her voting against any development application,” former Planning Commission Chairman Steve Lewis said during the 2007 campaign. The sentiment also was fueled by a leaked e-mail Herm­ acinski wrote to developer Jim Cook in April 2007. “I am very concerned about the direction this (City Council) is taking this community,” Hermacinski wrote. “I would like to see more vocal and represented involvement of the development community and wonder if you, as a group, are turning your minds to the November elections when 5 of the seats will be up for re-election.” Hermacinski said she sees no problem with the e-mail or other efforts to reach out to the development community. At the time, she said, about 35 percent of the community was

Kevin Bennett has

worked to make Steamboat Springs a better place to live. John Adams, Winter Sports Club and Foundation Board Member, resident for 40 years, says: “I was impressed with Kevin’s ability to motivate people to push ahead, full throttle, on the Colorado Olympian Project. We worked together to build the K-68 plastic ski jump at Howelsen Hill so future Olympians could have year-around training. The project was made possible through Kevin’s determination, state grants and private donations to keep our legacy of ‘Ski Town USA’ alive and well.

that Hermacinski is willing to challenge city staff and others. “There’s no question that she always comes really prepared. “I feel like Cari doesn’t have an agenda,” Quinn continued. “That she really reads the materials and tries to approach everything with an open mind and tries to make a decision that’s best for the community.”

transactions and personnel decisions, Hermacinski is fond of saying the laws don’t mandate such closed-door meetings. From its first meeting Nov. 13, 2007, through its last scheduled meeting Nov. 3, the current City Council has held an executive session at about a quarter of its meetings. The 2005-07 council met in executive session at about half of its meetings. “Whether you disagree or agree with what the person representing you is doing, you need to be accountable. The way you do it is by being open,” Hermacinski said. “You’ve got to be able to say what you believe publicly and stand behind that.” Cutting the frequency of executive sessions hasn’t been easy, Hermacinski said. At agenda review meetings, she said she often has to threaten to “throw a fit” to prevent an executive session from being scheduled. Hermacinski also has publicly challenged her fellow council members and city employees about some issues. She insisted that final interviews of city manager candidates be conducted in public, despite initial objections of City Council President Loui Antonucci and City Attorney Tony Lettunich. And in an effort to scale back the city’s 2009 budget, she openly challenged former Finance Director Lisa Rolan’s prediction that sales tax would decrease only 4 percent. Through August, city sales tax revenues are down about 17 percent. “My mom says I’m like a puppy who grabs a hold of your pant leg and doesn’t let go until it gets its way,” Hermacinski said.

Steve Ivancie said. “She tends to want to cut to the chase quickly. … Some people approach this work as if they have all the answers, and I don’t.” Ivancie, who is reaching his term limit, said he supports former council member Kevin Bennett in the race for the seat he’s vacating. He said Hermacinski too often takes a my-way-or-the-highway approach to council business and that he was turned off by her efforts to reverse some of the policies of the previous council. “Kevin builds on previous accomplishments,” Ivancie said. “Cari seemed to come in there with an attitude to dismantle. … Kevin believes in what the good government can do. Cari’s philosophy of government is that many times, government is the problem.” Among his examples, Ivancie cites an effort led by Hermacin­ ski to rework the city’s affordable housing ordinance, the No. 1 policy initiative of the previous City Council. Hermacinski successfully pushed for the suspension of linkage, an impact fee, and has led an effort to replace the city’s complex inclusionary zoning policy with simpler compliance methods. Hermacinski counts it as one of her top accomplishments on the council. “I thought suspending linkage was really good for the community because, you know, I don’t think it’s something that’s good in any economic environment and especially right now,” she said, adding that linkage tacked on a six-figure fee to the development of even modestsized office buildings and is thus a barrier to job creation. “We lose that kind of job we say we’re after.” Other council members are fond of Hermacinski. Coun­ cilman Jon Quinn has gone as far as to allow his words to be used in Hermacinski’s campaign advertisements. “She really has her heart in the right place,” said Quinn, who said he admires the fact

Bennett: I have strong differences Bennett continued from 1 Cari Hermacinski, who won the at-large seat against Towny Anderson in 2007. Hermacinski and Bennett are neighbors in Old Town’s Princeton Avenue neighborhood. “First of all, I respect anybody who puts time and effort into this,” Bennett, 61, said in reference to Hermacinski’s council service. “But I have strong differences. … I have seen a council focused on this (Steamboat 700) development at a level I don’t think we’ve ever seen before for the last 18 months.” The City Council voted 4-3 on Tuesday to annex Steamboat 700, a development that plans about 2,000 homes and 380,000 square feet of commercial space on what is now the western edge of the city. The annexation could be subject to a public vote if a citizen-led petition drive emerges. Hermacinski voted against the annexation, citing concerns that, as written, it wouldn’t satisfy all the goals of the West of Steamboat Springs Area Plan. Bennett has publicly and stridently questioned the annexation’s impacts on Steamboat Springs, primarily through increased traffic congestion and water use. He said the city’s allocation of $1.3 million for the New Victory Highway, which would connect Downhill Drive to the Overlook Park development and Steamboat 700, is

unjustifiable amid an economic recession and resulting city budget cuts. “I have a strong concern about the priorities of this council, and those are personified by the $1.3 million being spent … to build a road to a private development at a time when the city can least afford this completely unnecessary expense,” he said. Bennett became City Council president in February 1995, after Bill Martin left the position. Bennett became president on a 5-0 vote and held the seat through 2001, with affirmative votes from three councils in addition to the ’95 group.

Hits and misses Bennett grew up in Edina, Minn., and moved to Steamboat Springs in 1970. He worked as an owner of several businesses for 25 years and now calls himself “semi-retired.” His nearly seven years as Steamboat’s leading politician saw the construction of projects and amenities including Centennial Hall, Haymaker Golf Course, improved ski jumps at Howelsen Hill and an expanded Howelsen Ice Arena. Bennett helped preserve open space including a site that would become part of the Chuck Lewis State Wildlife Area, tracts on Emerald Mountain and the Legacy Ranch at U.S. Highway 40 and Colorado Highway 131.

resident who served on City Council from 1991 to 1995, said characterizing Bennett as a polarizing figure is “laughable.” “Kevin has accomplished more than any other president that has ever been there,” Martin said. “Kevin didn’t build Centennial Hall by himself. Kevin didn’t build the new ski jumps by himself. He had to have the political skill, the talent, the intelligence to bring people together to explore the merits of those projects.” Bennett’s tenure also included: ■ An ultimately unsuccessful consolidation of city water services with the Mount Werner Water and Sanitation District and a rocky relationship with some members of its board. ■ The controversial City Council passage of impact fees on new development, which sparked a local petition drive and a visit from an American Civil Liberties Union lawyer. The impact fees eventually were replaced at the ballot in 2002 with an excise tax. ■ No public vote on Cen­ tennial Hall, the ice rink expansion or the West of Steamboat Springs Area Plan. ■ Public votes on Haymaker Golf Course and the creation of a downtown development authority. ■ An expansion of Fish Creek Reservoir. Bennett cites the reservoir expansion in campaign ads, but Mount Werner Water officials say it was, first and foremost, executed by the Mount Werner Water District. “In terms of who moved forward with the enlargement, we moved forward with the enlargement,” said Jay Gallagher, general manager of the district. “The district needed permission from the city to move forward with it. In that sense, the city participated, because they are the permittee. But the expansion was at our initiative.” The city and the district agreed on the 2,280-acre-foot expansion in July 1994, after months of negotiation. Janice Illian has been the Mount Werner district’s office manager for 37 years. “Other than him being on the council when it all happened, I don’t see where he was instrumental in that,” she said about Bennett and the reservoir expansion. She declined to elaborate on Bennett’s relationship with the district and its board.

Anyone who has walked into Mahogany Ridge Brewery and Grill past 10 p.m. on a Friday in the past six or seven years stood an almost certain chance of seeing part of Worried Men’s well-weathered show. Originally a collection of the long-practiced band members’ favorite Grateful Dead tunes, through the years Worried Men’s weekly set became a standby to start the weekend, with a little Willie Nelson and a little Black Sabbath mixed in with a dose of classic rock covers. The band — Jon Gibbs on guitar and vocals; Randy Kelley on guitar and mandolin; Willie Samuelson on bass; and Pat Waters on drums and vocals — will take a break this fall and probably for part of the winter. Worried Men’s last show at Mahogany for at least a few months is at 10 p.m. Friday. Admission is free, and the band will close the set with its occasional heavy metal night-ender, Gibbs said. “We definitely are planning

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

Not good enough Thomas Friedman The New York Times


If President Barack Obama can find a way to balance the precise number of troops that will stabilize Afghanistan and Pakistan without tipping America into a Vietnam there, then he indeed deserves a Nobel Prize — for physics. I have no problem with the president taking his time to figure this out. He and we are going to have to live with this decision for a long time. For my Friedman money, though, I wish there was less talk today about how many more troops to send and more focus on what kind of Afghan government we have as our partner. Because when you are mounting a counterinsurgency campaign, the

local government is the critical bridge between your troops and your goals. If that government is rotten, your whole enterprise is doomed. Independent election monitors suggest that as many as one-third of votes cast in the Aug. 20 election are tainted and that President Hamid Karzai apparently engaged in massive fraud to come out on top. Yet, he is supposed to be the bridge between our troop surge and our goal of a stable Afghanistan. No way. I understand the huge stakes in stabilizing Afghanistan and Pakistan. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, our top commander there who is asking for thousands more troops, is not wrong when he says a lot of bad things would flow from losing Afghanistan to the Taliban. But I keep asking myself: How do we succeed with such a tainted government as our partner? I know Jefferson was not on the

ballot. But there is a huge difference between “good enough” and dysfunctional and corrupt. Whatever we may think, there are way too many Afghans who think our partners, Karzai and his team, are downright awful. That is why it is not enough for us to simply dispatch more troops. If we are going to make a renewed commitment in Afghanistan, we have to visibly display to the Afghan people that we expect a different kind of governance from Karzai, or whoever rules, and refuse to proceed without it. It doesn’t have to be Switzerland, but it does have to be good enough — that is, a government Afghans are willing to live with. Without that, more troops only will delay a defeat. I am not sure Washington fully understands just how much the Talibanled insurgency is increasingly an insurSee Friedman, page 9

Obama delays his promise to gays Clarence Page

Tribune Media Services

As if he didn’t have enough headaches. President Barack Obama has to decide not only whether to deploy more troops to the war in Afghanistan but also whether gays and lesbians will be allowed to serve in it. Although confidential surveys show thousands are serving, officially homosexuals still are banned from military service unless they are willing to comply with a hastily Page constructed “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy Congress passed in 1993. In short: Your superiors won’t ask whether you’re a gay, lesbian or bisexual as long as you stay in the closet. How has it worked out? Worse for gays and lesbians in some ways than

what they had before. As a candidate, Obama promised to be a fierce advocate for gay rights in the fight to overturn “don’t ask, don’t tell.” As president, he is still an advocate, but fierce? Not so much. In fact, not at all. Some of his supporters in the gay rights community are getting mightily impatient. Maverick conservative and openly gay blogger Andrew Sullivan eloquently endorsed Obama’s candidacy, but you could not tell from his review of Obama’s Saturday speech to the Human Rights Campaign, the world’s largest gay political group. “Much worse than I expected,” he wrote on The Atlantic magazine’s Web site. The president “failed every test” — by offering no specifics on key issues — “this speech was highfalutin bull (bleep).” (Censorship mine.) I appreciate Sullivan’s point. I used to think that allowing gays in the military would weaken national security. I have

since discovered how much our national security would be weakened without them. I was led to this view not so much by what military people have said but by what military commanders have done. The discharge numbers indicate that tolerance for gays and lesbians in the ranks actually rises sharply when the military is called upon to perform its primary mission, which is to fight wars. Discharges as a result of “don’t ask, don’t tell” doubled from 617 in 1994 to 1,273 in 2001, the Defense Department reports. But despite assertions by the Pentagon that nothing has changed, discharges under the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law took a nose dive after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks led to new wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. By 2007, such discharges dropped sharply in half to 627. See Page, page 9 Bruce Tinsley allows readers to submit comments on stories, to create their own blogs and to participate in our Reader Forum.

Karzai regime behaves like Mafia family way too polite and too worried about looking like a colonial power, in dealing with Karzai. I would not add a single soldier there before this guy, if he does win the presidency, takes visible steps to clean up his government in ways that would be respected by the Afghan people. If Karzai says no, then there is only one answer: “You’re on your own, pal. Have a nice life with the Taliban. We can’t and will not put more American blood and treasure behind a government that behaves like a Mafia family. If you don’t think we will leave — watch this.” (Cue the helicopters.) So, please, spare me the lectures about how important Afghanistan and Pakistan are today. I get the stakes. But we can’t want a more decent Afghanistan than the country’s own president. If we do, we have no real local partner who will be able to hold the allegiance of the people, and we will not succeed — whether with more troops, more drones or more money.

Obama owes gay community a timetable Page continued from 8 It even has become a challenge for some gay personnel to get themselves discharged after revealing their homosexuality on purpose. Some who came out of the closet, like the famous case of Army Sgt. Darren Manzella, were told to get back in. Manzella, whose story was broadcast on “60 Minutes,” served as an openly gay soldier in Headquarters Company, 1st Cavalry Division, for more than two years before he was honorably discharged in 2008. The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, an advocacy group formed in response to don’t ask, don’t tell, estimated that more than 500 gay troops are serving openly like Manzella. For their commanders, “don’t ask, don’t tell” apparently has become “look

the other way and keep marching.” Attitudes about equal rights for gays appear to have evolved within the military as they have in the civilian world. A 2006 Zogby International poll found that 73 percent of the military personnel were comfortable with the idea of serving with gays and lesbians. About one in four U.S. troops who served in Afghanistan or Iraq told Zogby pollsters they knew a member of their unit who was gay. Today’s military and the reporters who cover it report a generation gap in the ranks on this issue. The older personnel are opposed to gays and lesbians serving openly. The younger ones tend not to think the issue is a big deal either way. They have bigger issues to worry about. Or, as we used to say about racial integra-

tion when I was a Vietnam-era Army draftee, there are no bigots in foxholes. A group of 28 retired generals and admirals, including retired Army Gen. John Shalikashvili, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, issued a letter in late 2007 calling on Congress to repeal the “don’t ask, don’t tell” act. Yet the firings continue. Busy as he is on other issues, Obama owes at least a timetable for action on the big issues of concern to gay and lesbian communities that enthusiastically supported his election. The equal rights fight calls not only for outreach to opposing views but also leadership, commitment and action that spends some political capital. That’s a tough call for any president, but as his predecessor might say, Obama is “the decider” now.

rection against the behavior of the Karzai government — not against the religion or civilization of its international partners. And too many Afghan people now blame us for installing and maintaining this government. Karzai already is trying to undermine more international scrutiny of this fraudulent election and avoid any runoff. On Monday, his ally on the Electoral Complaints Commission, Mustafa Barakzai, resigned, alleging “foreign interference.” That is Karzai trying to turn his people against us to prevent us from cleaning up an election that he polluted. Through Afghanistan experts in Kabul, Washington and Berlin, a picture is emerging: The Karzai government has a lot in common with a Mafia family. Where a “normal” government raises revenues from the people — in the form of taxes — and then disburses them to its local and regional institutions in the form

of budgetary allocations or patronage, this Afghan government operates in the reverse. The money flows upward from the countryside in the form of payments for offices purchased or “gifts” from cronies. What flows from Kabul, the experts say, is permission for unfettered extraction, protection in case of prosecution and punishment in case the official opposes the system or gets out of line. In “Karzai World,” it appears, slots are either sold (to people who buy them in order to make a profit) or granted to cronies, or are given away to buy off rivals. We have to be very careful that we are not seen as the enforcers for this system. While visiting Afghanistan last July, I met a key provincial governor who every U.S. official told me was the best and most honest in Afghanistan — and then, they added, “We have to fight Karzai every day to keep him from being fired.” That is what happens to those who buck the Karzai system. This is crazy. We have been

High-end beauty products, jewelry and merchandise worth $2,000 to $3,000 were stolen from the Waterside Day Spa and Salon in a burglary Tuesday night. Steamboat Springs Police Capt. Joel Rae reported that the thief or thieves apparently entered through an unlocked front door between 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and 8 a.m. Wednesday. Rae said the door apparently was accidentally left unlocked by an employee. “We are grateful; it could have been a lot worse,” owner Anne Duckels said. Workers at the store reported that the registers and equipment were not damaged and that burglars stole the merchandise from the front of the store. Police ask that anyone with

information contact them at 879-1144 or Crime Stoppers at 879-6226. The spa will offer a reward for information that leads to the return of the merchandise.

Local firefighters union endorses Kenny Reisman Steamboat Springs City Council candidate Kenny Reisman has picked up the endorsement of the local firefighters union. Michael Arce, president of IAFF Local 4472, said Wednesday that Steamboat’s 20 or so full-time firefighters are backing the District 2 candidate because they were impressed with Reisman’s “views on the issues and public safety in particular.” The firefighters recently met with Reisman to discuss his candidacy. The union has not

met with Reisman’s opponent, Ken Solomon. “I am honored to have the endorsement and support of the Steamboat firefighters,” Reisman said. “I believe that it is critical to ensure that our public safety officials — firefighters, police officers, EMTs — have the resources they need to ensure their safety and enable them to continue to provide our families, our children, our community, with the highest levels of support.”

Charter school delayed 1 year Oak Creek

Stagecoach charter school supporters said they plan to wait one more year before trying to open the preschool to sixth grade school through the South Routt School District. Instead of aiming for an opening in the 2010-11 school year, the group will try to start the school in the 2011-12 school year. Superintendent Scott Mader is scheduled to update the South Routt School Board on the group’s progress at a meeting at 7:30 tonight. “We were looking at the student numbers, and starting school the next year would be a stronger start,” said Jane Colby, an organizer for the school. Colby said the group was going to submit an application to the South Routt School Board this month. After reviewing the nonbinding letters of intent from parents in the Stagecoach area, however, they found they would have more students if they waited another year. Colby said she did not have the number of potential students. “Basically, we were plan-

ning on filing the application this month,” she said. “We’ve pushed that back a year now, and in the meantime, we’ll be doing more work in refining some of the details.” Those details will include the curriculum for the school as well as a location. Colby said the group had not decided whether it would build a school or try to use an existing spot. Also on the agenda at tonight’s school board meeting, members will consider updating policy to align with the Colorado Association of School Boards, business manager Dina Murray said. Although the school board’s policies do not always align with the association’s policies, Murray said the updates, regarding expulsion, homeless students, attendance and open enrollment, are all association updates to conform to state laws. The board also will hear updates about the construction of the elementary school gym, the Education Fund Board, the district’s greenhouse and its valedictorian policy.

On the first day after the Steamboat Springs City Council approved the annexation of the Steamboat 700 development, no petitioners had registered to create a referendum to bring the issue to a citywide vote. According to a memo about referendum procedure created by city attorney Tony Lettunich, petitioners have 30 days from the day after the vote to form a petitioners’ committee, gather the necessary number of signatures and file the petitions with the office of the city clerk.

City Clerk Julie Franklin said no documents were filed to start the referendum process. The Community Alliance of the Yampa Valley will not be involved in the referendum procedure, Vice President Richard Levy said Wednesday. He said the group decided to not pursue the referendum because it is a divisive subject and because the City Council addressed some of the group’s concerns with the annexation before it was passed. “I think that one of the reasons we’re not going to be participating in the petition is that the Community Alliance fully participated in the process with the council,” Levy said. “We achieved some of those goals by participating there, and try-

City Council members Meg Bentley and Steve Ivancie tried to put the annexation to a voluntary public vote, but their motion failed in a 2-5 vote late Tuesday night. The annexation was approved, 4-3, with Council President Loui Antonucci and Councilmen Walter Magill, Jon Quinn and Scott Myller supporting the annexation. Council members Cari Hermacinski, Ivancie and Bentley voted against the proposal. The annexation is expected to bring about 2,000 homes, 380,000 square feet of commercial space and 4,700

Alpine Campus. Capt. Joel Rae said officers stopped a car with no taillights at about 1:40 a.m. and found that two people in the car were underage and intoxicated. The driver was sober. When asked where they got the alcohol, the two said they were at a party in the first block of Butcherknife Alley. “It’s been a chronic party house,” Rae said. “We’ve had numerous calls over the past month and a half.” When officers arrived at the house, they cited Kaleb Soldz, Henry Grant, Michael Vidor, Aaron McDougal and Greg Russell, all 19-year-old CMC students, with a social host violation. The five are all listed on the lease to the apartment, Rae said. The homeowner also was told about the party and the tickets but does not face any penalty. Rae said the owner was not aware of what was going on at the house. “He’s not technically required to do anything, but he is the owner of the house, and basically it’s becoming a neighborhood concern from all the parties that are taking place there,” he said. Rae said five people have complained about loud music, numerous cars and other nuisances at the house in the past couple of months. See Ordinance, page 36


Water rate hike up for approval Hayden council to consider second reading of ordinance today Jack Weinstein



Water rates in Hayden will increase if the Town Council approves the second reading of the water base rate ordinance at tonight’s meeting. The Town Council approved the first reading earlier this month. A public hearing will precede the second reading. If it’s approved, the monthly rates will increase by $3.05 to $19, which is a 19 percent increase. The senior rates would increase $1.83 per month to $11.40. The ordinance also would increase the tap fees by 25 percent, from $3,800 to $4,800 for water and $1,900 to $2,400 for sewer. Town Manager Russ Martin said the water rates don’t generate enough revenue to cover their costs, which enterprise funds are supposed to do. The water and sewer systems’ budget is separate from the town’s general fund. He said raising rates would generate about $25,000 to $30,000 a year. And along with the tap fee increase, the hike would help eliminate a $75,000 annual deficit in the town’s water fund. “The gap is so wide right now, it’s not sustainable,” Martin said. “We have to find some ways to close that gap.” Martin said he thought the $3.05 monthly increase was reasonable but said more rate increases could follow. He added

that during an abnormal year with high rainfall, such as this year, residents used less water, which meant they paid for less water. Council member Jim Haskins said it’s important to make the distinction between the rate and tap fee increase and water loss in the town’s system. “Those issues have morphed into one, and they’re not,” he said. “They’re separate issues.” The town could be losing close to 30 percent of its water each year, according to reports from city staff members. But Martin has said that apparent loss might stem from inaccurate measurements of water flow at the plant. Haskins said he doesn’t think the water loss is as severe as it appears. But even if it is losing water, he said, the town still isn’t generating enough revenue for the water fund to support itself. “Regardless, it does not address the issue that it costs us a lot of money to produce water,” he said. “The way we’ve set up the water and sewer, they’re supposed to pay for themselves, and we’re not even close without these fee increases. We’ve had to borrow money from general fund.” He said whether the town covers costs by increasing rates or borrowing money from the general fund, it’s still using taxpayer dollars. Haskins said he hasn’t heard from Hayden residents about the proposed fee increases, and only one member of the community

attended the last meeting. The ordinance also would require that residents fix a broken water meter 60 days after receiving written notice. The town could shut off their water if that repair wasn’t made in 120 days. Also at tonight’s meeting, the Town Council will hold a public hearing and decide whether to approve the second reading of the winter parking and street obstruction and encroachments ordinance. Haskins said the issue was identified by public works employees, who noticed that after they plowed, some residents shoveled snow into the streets. He said that snow would freeze, which created problems for drivers. Hopefully this ordinance would take care of that problem, Haskins said. The Town Council also will make a decision tonight on Creek View Grill’s change of manager, to Phillip Davis from Steven Chamberlain and corporation EPIC’s Inc. Council members also will consider renewing its liquor license, which expires Nov. 3.

Hermacinski said Wednesday. “Fundraising has been difficult — I’m hoping it’s the recession and not loss of support.” Bennett could not be reached Wednesday. In the District 2 City Council race, Kenny Reisman reported $2,175 in contributions. His opponent, Ken Solomon, reported $3,329. For the two-year, at-large seat, Jim Engelken reported $2,203, and Kyle Pietras reported $1,818. Incumbent Walter Magill, running unopposed for the District 3 seat, reported neither a dime received nor a dime spent in his campaign. “I’ve gone to all the forums I’ve been invited to and made some statements, but I’m saving money in the recession,” Magill said. “You’re probably seeing in these numbers that it takes a lot of money to campaign in Steamboat.” Magill said despite the cost, he regrets not having an opponent in this election. “You’re always better served when elections are contested,” he said, citing the benefits of an active, involved community. In the race for the District 1 seat on the Steamboat Springs School Board, Bill Kennedy reported $1,000 in contributions, all from himself. Brian Kelly reported $775.

Band’s schedule remains up in the air Worried Men continued from 6 ed a break from their regular set could do some good, he said. Gibbs said he hopes to use his newfound early Friday nights to ski with his children on Saturday mornings. “We’re not breaking up, and we’re not saying goodbye to Mahogany by any means. We just thought it would be nice to take a break,” Gibbs said. Jacob Owens, general manager and booking coordinator at Mahogany Ridge, said Friday nights through the off-season would focus on local musicians, with occasional touring acts filling up a schedule of mostly free shows. Front Range bluegrass band WhiteWater Ramble plays the venue Oct. 23, and members of Worried Men and fellow local band Missed the Boat play Oct. 30. The members of Worried Men left the doors open to come back to Mahogany whenever they want, Owens said. “It’s been a good local tradition almost for a long time,” Owens said about the band’s sets. “A lot of people who come are here on a regular basis. And it’s fun to see them develop. When they put Pat (Waters) on

drums they brought in a lot of new songs, and you could tell the new energy was good for the band,” he said. Waters, Worried Men’s third drummer since the band formed, adds a higher vocal range for a bigger song selection, Gibbs said. Worried Men might start playing shows at Mahogany in

early 2010, but the schedule is up in the air, Gibbs said. For Friday’s show, Gibbs said he hopes to draw a crowd. “We promise to deliver a good show, being our last one there for a while. … We’re just hoping for a busy night at Mahogany. We want to give them back a busy night since they’ve given us so many over the years,” he said.

Someone went to her hotel room looking for her, Vanatta said, and that’s when she was found.

Candidate doesn’t regret any of her votes

‘I have a history of standing up to power’ Bennett continued from 4 Routt County Commissioner Nancy Stahoviak said communication with the city suffered during Bennett’s tenure. “I would characterize (communication) as not necessarily as good as it has been with other councils,” Stahoviak said, declining to elaborate. Paula Cooper Black, a council member from 1987 to 1999, also chose her comments carefully when discussing Bennett’s leadership. “I thought he was not the easiest to deal with. Oftentimes I felt the debate was stifled and cut off,” she said. “I think what one might view as passion, others might view as perhaps being more dictatorial than a representative government should be. … Council had always sort of had an unwritten rule that every two years, someone else would take over as president … I think that

changed under Kevin’s tenure.” Don Valentine sat on the Mount Werner Water and San­ itation District’s board from 1967 to 2004. He did not hold back when talking about Bennett. “He makes himself sound like somebody that he’s really not — that he’s a great facilitator and someone who can work well with other groups,” Valentine said. “It’s really the opposite as far as I’m concerned. … His approach to trying to work with the Mount Werner Water board has been a disaster forever.” Bennett, sipping coffee earlier this month at Steaming Bean, took a long pause before responding with a reason for Valentine’s opinions about him. “Because I took him on. Because I took on Mount Werner. Standing up to power will get you in trouble, and I have a history of standing up to power,” Bennett said. “If you look at my record, we put

together a lot of partnerships in the ’90s that were very successful. Their success is seen in the river and the two miles of new access, the five miles of new (Yampa River) Core Trail, the 400 percent increase in parks, Haymaker, the ice rink, Centennial Hall. All of these major improvements were done through partnerships. I’ll let my record speak for itself.”

Future plans Bennett said if re-elected, he would not seek the council presidency. Nor would he take it if offered. “I’m more interested in quietly working on traffic, rebuilding our grants capacity and seeing about some long-term solutions to our mobility, at 13th Street, for example,” he said. “I hope if I’m elected to be kind of the elder statesman working on some of (this) long-term, business of government stuff.”

would expect that kind of fair treatment from me,” she said. “This time it just happened to be developers.” Moving forward, Herma­ cinski described herself as “a pretty boring politician” who will remain focused on the same core issues such as open government and fiscal responsibility. She also is excited about a couple of issues coming up, such as an ordinance that would allow hens to be raised in city limits and a new activity being developed by Routt County Riders and the Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp. that could help boost local tourism. “I think that the future of Steamboat, in terms of diversifying its tourism base, is based on all kinds of biking,” she said.

employed by the development and real estate industries. “You have to make sure you’re reaching out to large demographic groups in a campaign,” Hermacinski said. “I’ve never made a decision that I don’t believe is good for the community at large.” To a lesser degree, the tag has stuck with Hermacinski. Council candidates Bennett, Ken Solomon and Jim Engelken have said they think the current council is too pro-development, citing decisions such as one amending development standards at the base of Steamboat Ski Area to allow buildings as tall as 105 feet. Before Hermacinski had chosen which council seat to run

for, Engelken said that whoever faced her would be running against “the combined weight of the entire development community.” Hermacinski said she doesn’t regret any of her votes as a council member, and she thinks she handles issues fairly, regardless of who is involved. She also has been criticized for voting in favor of an ordinance last year that would have prevented city accountants from reconciling building-use-tax deposits on open permits issued during the previous three years. Although Hermacinski was in favor of reconciling permits going forward, she said it was unfair to retroactively enforce the previously ignored reconciliation process. “Any constituent group

Steamboat preps for 3 home games

Sailors hope to tame Huskies

The Steamboat Springs High School volleyball team has an opportunity this week to take control of its own destiny as the season winds down. But the team will undertake those efforts in some not-so-easy circumstances. Steamboat plays at 6:30 p.m. today at home against chief rival Moffat County. The team then welcomes known nemesis Battle Mountain for an 11 a.m. showdown Saturday, before Western Slope League-leading Eagle Valley comes in at 4 p.m. that day. All games will be played at Steamboat Springs High School. The three games are vital for Steamboat (12-2 overall, 8-1 in the Western Slope League) as the season winds down. “You can’t look past anybody,” coach Wendy Hall said. “I’m sure everybody feels that way right now. It’s a great league. It’s tight. I’m hoping that gives us good preparation going into the district tournament.” With five league games ahead and Steamboat in second place, the Sailors still have the opportunity to win a league title. It starts with a pesky Moffat County team tonight. The Bulldogs haven’t had the season they wanted, but when it comes to the U.S. Highway 40 rivalry, records rarely matter. Steamboat picked up a 3-1 win earlier in the season at Moffat County. “Playing them is definitely in See Volleyball, page 21

Setter Colleen King pounds the ball over the net during Wednesday’s Steamboat Springs High School volleyball team practice. King and her teammates were preparing for tonight’s game against Moffat County.

Sit down and look at the Western Slope League football playoff formulas, mash the numbers, predict outcomes and try to figure out who the three playoff qualifiers will be, and it can be nauseating. The bottom line, and the only thing the Steamboat Springs High School football team can control, is winning Friday at Battle Mountain. “We’re not quite there,” Steamboat coach Aaron Finch said. “We’re not going to talk about it.” What is known is with three league games and a nonleague game with Buena Vista left on the schedule, Steamboat is right where it wants to be. The Sailors are 6-0 overall and 5-0 in league play. If Steamboat keeps winning, the playoffs will come, Finch said. “If you just play to win, you’re not getting the most out of yourself,” Finch said. “We’re trying as individuals and as a team to get better. We want to be better at understanding the offense and getting better on defense. We game plan the best we can to beat the opponent that we play this week. But we still go to practice and get better.” It’s no secret what Steamboat is getting into at 7 p.m. Friday. See Football, page 21

QB Orton’s career quickly taking off with Broncos Arnie Stapleton The Associated Press


In Chicago, his many critics suggested the “O” in quarterback Kyle Orton’s name really stood for “Ordinary.”

So far in Denver, then, it must mean “Outstanding.” Orton’s Broncos are 5-0 for the first time since 1998, when they won their last Super Bowl with Hall of Famer John Elway under center. Every week, Orton makes the

much-maligned offseason trade of Pro Bowl passer Jay Cutler to Chicago for Orton and a king’s ransom of draft picks look more and more like a wise move for rookie coach Josh McDaniels. While Cutler has settled in with the Bears (3-1), nobody in

Denver is decrying his departure anymore. Orton won AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors for leading the Broncos to a 20-17 win over New England and McDaniels’ mentor, Bill Belichick, on Sunday in what was

arguably his best game as a pro. He completed a career-high 35 of 48 passes for 330 yards and two touchdown throws to cap drives that covered 90 and 98 yards. He then drove the Broncos methodically downfield for the winning kick in overtime.

Busy schedule should mirror postseason our minds,” Steamboat senior Jayde Mattox said. “We’re trying to take it one game at a time. We’re focused on (today), and then we’ll take Saturday as it comes.” If Steamboat gets through today with a win, it sets up a monumental showdown on Saturday. Steamboat beat Battle Mountain in three games earlier this year, before suffering its lone league loss of the year against Eagle Valley. In the Eagle Valley game, the Devils used three blockers to control reigning league player of the year Colleen King. Hall said Steamboat would make adjustments as the Sailors play everybody in the league again. “We’re trying to work on

some specifics,” she said. “Especially with Eagle Valley. They have big hitters we struggled to slow down. We know what’s coming. We also saw them triple block an outside hitter, which I’ve never seen in high school.” That plan may be to get Mattox and fellow outside hitter Kelsey Butler more involved in the offense. Steamboat’s proven it’s strong with King and middle hitters Devin Wilkinson and Maggie Stanford. But getting an outside game going should help the Sailors become more versatile. “I think we understand what the teams are like,” Mattox said. “We know more about the teams and are more confident in how we play. Going through a second time has made us more confident.”

Although the busy schedule isn’t ideal, Hall said a silver lining is that it will prepare the Sailors for the district tournament, a oneday, multiple-game event. She said having to refocus so quickly helps prepare Steamboat’s team for postseason play. But before the Sailors can talk postseason, they must get through the Bulldogs today. “We just can’t look ahead,” Hall said. “That’s when you get into trouble. Especially against Moffat, who always shows up and battles against us. We definitely need to be ready and focused.”

the league. “We approach it like we approached the last two weeks against Palisade and Rifle,” defensive lineman Darian Buelter said. “We come in and watch film. We know their offense can move the ball. We have to play like we can and shut them down in the first couple of minutes. If we play our game, we’ll beat them.” The key might be for Steam­ boat to get off to a fast start. The Sailors have outscored opponents 139-34 in the first half this season. But being what many consider the No. 1 team in Class 3A means Steamboat is likely to get Battle Mountain’s best shot. And the longer the Huskies stay in the game, the tougher they’re likely to get. “People decided we’re a good football team and ranked us accordingly, no matter how much I like it or not,” Finch said. “The target is on us.

Battle Mountain (1-5, 0-4) has spent the better part of the decade in the cellar of the league. The Huskies snapped a 19-game losing streak earlier this season against Highland High School. Offensive playmaker Parke Robbins leads Battle Mountain. The senior is equally adept at running the ball, catching the ball and throwing the ball. He has topped 200 yards rushing multiple times this year and is one of the top athletes in

Strength and courage are required but, once you take action, everything will improve. Your numbers are 8, 15, 17, 23, 26, 39, 44 ARIES (March 21-April 19): You can make an interesting career move that will encompass your creative skills in an unusual way.

Your actions now will determine whether you are a leader or a follower. A short road trip or telephone calls will be required to take care of a family matter. ★★★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Before you lash out at someone who isn't living up to your expectations, consider if you are pulling your own weight. Expect opposition and a reluctance to give in to ultimatums or demands -- and consider how you can turn things around. ★★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take part in the activities going on around you or you may miss out on a very special encounter with someone you care for. Conversations will lead to something you least expect. Share your thoughts and ideas about the future. ★★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don't sit back if someone offers you a good deal. Take advantage of any change that will benefit you professionally or financially. You'll regain your enthusiasm if you incorporate something new into something you are in the middle of doing. ★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You will lack concentration and will find it hard to finish what you start. Consider what's really important and make whatever adjustments are required to work at top speed. Shirking your responsibilities will not help form important alliances.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your intuitive thoughts will lead you in the right direction if it has to do with a financial matter. Don't let someone's lack of vision or originality frustrate you; take over and complete what needs to be done. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You are in the right place at the right time. A meeting with someone you respect will lead to a lasting relationship. If there are changes in social plans, don't be afraid to go it alone. ★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Ulterior motives are present and must be considered when you opt to take on something that you aren't positive you want to pursue. Protect yourself and your assets from anyone who is too aggressive. ★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The more informed you are, the better equipped you will be to take on a task that is heading your way. Once you establish your position, others will come to you for help and advice and to offer assistance. ★★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your ability to accept responsibility will alter your life and help you plan for a better future. Getting rid of debt and asking for reimbursement for the things you do will all contribute. Invest in yourself. ★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Socialize and network but leave time for love and romance. Whether you are single or in a relationship, you can make your life better with someone who complements you. If you aren't happy with your current situation, now is a great time to make a change. ★★★ Birthday Baby: You are sensitive, impulsive and know how to get your way. You are drawn to the unusual. You are aggressive and persistent.

Therefore, a peti­ tioners’ committee would have to obtain at least 829 signatures on a referendum petition to have the ordinance referred back to City Council,” Lettunich wrote in the memo. If a petition is filed in the case, the council then must either repeal the annexation ordinance or bring the ordi­ nance to a city vote. “By agreement with Steam­

residents to the western edge of the city in the next 20 to 30 years. Anyone who wants to cre­ ate a referendum must first form a group of five registered voters to register as the refer­ endum committee. The group then must collect signatures from 10 percent of the voters registered in the last municipal election. “The County Clerk and Recorder’s office has confirmed that at the time of the 2007

boat 700 any special election on a referendum regarding the Steamboat 700 annexation would be an all mail ballot, just as the November 3, 2009 regu­ lar municipal election will be an all mail ballot, with no polling places,” Lettunich wrote. “Given the time frame set forth for circulating and confirming the sufficiency of a petition and any supplemental petitions and City Council meeting dates, it would appear that a special referendum election would occur in January or February 2010.”

The five housemates also were cited for being minors in possession of alcohol and are scheduled to appear before a municipal judge Dec. 2. The Steamboat Springs City Council passed the social host ordinance in May, but police had not used it until Wednesday. The ordinance carries a firstoffense fine of at least $500, at least 24 hours of community service and a requirement that the offender complete an alco­ hol education program. The exact fines and punish­ ment are at the discretion of the municipal judge.
