Is curbside ski recycling coming? I

did something to a couple of buddies last year that left me feeling a little sad and guilt-ridden. I hauled them out to the curb on trash day. My 204 cm Elan MBX’s, the pals I shared dozens of memorable powder days with, haven’t been heard Tom Ross from since. PILOT & TODAY After years of storing them and several other pairs of Alpine skis in a rack in a cluttered one-car garage, I was forced on moving day to confront their inevitable destiny. I could have had a little curbside ceremony to acknowledge everything they’d done for me. But I didn’t want the neigh-

I tried to find a home for them with one of those guys in Old Town who builds colorful alley fences out of other peoples’ retired skis. It turned out that their spouses had forbidden them from adopting any more fence pick-

Steamboat Today’s published authors The Haunted Library by Blythe Terrell

When I was out for a walk in Austin, Texas, in 2006, I came up with an idea for a children’s novel. It involved two kids (originally two boys; one became a girl later) who came across a library where each book was haunted. More than two years later, I published that story with an artist friend as “The Haunted Library.” The spooky book, written for 9- to 11-year-olds, takes children on a journey with Taddie and Esteban as they uncover the mystery of a haunted dictionary. I will be at Bud Werner Memorial Library at 6 p.m. Monday to read an excerpt and sign copies. The book is available online and at Epilogue Book Co.

Life in the ’Boat

Seasons of Light Photos by Rod Hanna, text by Tom Ross

by Joanne Palmer

I like to make people laugh. I think it’s important to look at the lighter side of life, especially now when things are so serious and people are struggling. “Life in the’ ‘Boat” celebrates the humor in being human and life in Ski Town USA. I guarantee it will make you smile and find the humor in everyday life. “Life in the ‘Boat” is available at, Epilogue Book Co. and Off the Beaten Path.

Joanne Palmer Columnist

In 2006 and 2007, I was offered a wonderful opportunity to write a series of essays to accompany Steamboat Springs photographer Rod Hanna’s images in his book, “Seasons of Light.” I’ve always admired Rod both personally and professionally. So, it was a stroke of great fortune to have my name connected with such a beautiful and successful book. The book is available at Off The Beaten Path, Wild Horse Gallery, Epilogue Book Co. and And watch for Rod’s new book about autumn color across all of Colorado’s Western Slope.

Christian Heritage School eighth-grader Andie Baker calls out a card during a game of keno Friday at the Doak Walker Care Center. Forty-three students from the school spent part of the day volunteering at organizations throughout Routt County.

A day of giving back Christian Heritage students volunteer across Routt County Jack Weinstein



Doak Walker Care Center resident Grace Dubendorf was fortunate to have Christian Heritage School seventh-grader Andrea Clark as her keno partner Friday morning. Dubendorf, 86, isn’t very fond of the game. “I’ve never played keno, and I don’t think I’ll do it again,” she said. “It’s boring.” But her lack of enthusiasm for the game didn’t prevent Dubendorf from enjoying her time with Andrea, whom she knows because they both attend First Baptist Church. “I love her to pieces,” Dubendorf said. “I always have a good time with this young lady.” Christian Heritage students joined Doak residents for the keno game Friday morning as part of the school’s community service outreach day. Dave Entwistle, administrator at Christian Heritage, said 43 middle and high school students spent time in the morning helping organizations across Routt County. “I wanted to expose them to serving others and to recognize how fortunate we are,” said Entwistle, who before moving to Steamboat Springs spent 18 years teaching at a school for missionaries’ children in Kenya. “Let’s face it, we’re blessed. I wanted the kids to have an outward opportunity to serve others.” The Christian Heritage students were split among LIFT-UP of Routt Cou­ nty, Integrated Community,

Horizons Specialized Services and the Steamboat Springs Pregnancy Resource Center. A group stayed at the school and assisted Come Let’s Dance, some students collected canned goods in Steamboat II, and another group worked on a Habitat for Humanity project in Hayden. The group of four seventhgraders at LIFT-UP helped sort donated winter clothing and food. Pam Graham, food bank and case manager, said LIFTUP has received more interest in recent years from schools. “We work with them the best we can because we feel it’s valuable for them to see a place like this where people need help,” she said, adding that student volunteers see there’s a need and that organizations exist to help people. “It’s an educational tool serving them as much as they help us.” Entwistle said he hoped Christian Heritage could build on the experience by having community service outreach days each semester and involving more students. At the Doak, Kathy Ulmer, the care center’s community life recreation assistant, said the residents typically play keno Thursday nights. She said they were playing Friday morning only because the Christian Heritage students were visiting. “We like it,” she said about their visit. “The residents like it. I think everybody has a good time.” Andrea, the seventh-grader, said she and her classmates were spending time with the residents because they’re “awesome.” “It’s so much fun to smile at

someone and for them to smile back,” she said. Eighth-grader David Kissane said he enjoyed talking to people who had been around longer than he had. “Helping out and having conversations is fun,” he said. “You learn things. It’s a pretty cool place.” David added: “Another fun thing about coming here is, it’s easy to make people happy.” That was true for 89-year-old Mollie Mahony. She said it was the first time a group of students had visited the Doak, as far as she could remember. “Oh, I think it’s great,” Mahony said. “I have lots of kids myself, and I love it. I’m enjoying it very much.”

The Ragbirds play at 10 p.m. today at the Old Town Pub. Moore promises a high-energy set that draws on his and front woman Erin Zindle’s love of world music and diverse cultures. “We knew we wanted to make music based on different sounds … and I guess we let the world music just seep in there,” Moore said. The group’s most recent album, “Finally Almost Ready,” came out in August.

The court fight between a former Oak Creek mayor and the town of Oak Creek proceeded into federal district court, with a settlement conference scheduled for Nov. 10. If no settlement is reached, the case will go to a jury trial, probably in late 2010. Kathy “Cargo” Rodeman sued the town of Oak Rodeman Creek, along with its two police officers and each of the five Oak Creek Town Board members, in connection with an incident in July 2008 when Erik Foster, a town police officer at the time, reportedly used a Taser on Rodeman in her home. Rodeman initially sued both police officers individually and as officers, the town of Oak Creek, and each of the seven Town Board trustees individually and in their official capacities. In late September, Rodeman’s attorney, Kris Hammond,

The complaint also sought to hold the town and Town Board accountable for the police officers’ actions.

and defense attorney Gordon Vaughan jointly submitted a request to remove the Town Board members from the suit. The judge granted the motion, and the case now includes only the town, Foster and former Police Chief Russ Caterinicchio. Vaughan, reached at his office in Colorado Springs by telephone, said the case is proceeding in court but declined to discuss how much money was being sought. Hammond was unavailable for comment Thursday afternoon, but in the past he has said “the more zeros the better,” in terms of money in the case. Rodeman also said she did not want to comment on the case. U.S. District Court Judge Philip Brimmer referred the case to Magistrate Judge Michael Watanabe, and a deadline for discovery materials was set for June 14, 2010. The case that was filed in county court, before it was removed to district court, included 12 complaints, as summarized by Vaughan. Those were: assault, bat-

physician inform her interest in health care reform, whether the discussion is about the system or specific action in Congress. “My goal with participating in anything like this is really trying to carry on a dialogue with people and really trying to educate them,” she said. Hagenbuch said he will try “as best as I can” to represent Bennet’s position on health care reform at the event; Hagenbuch described that position as being oriented toward a need to talk about the topic, rather than a definite answer to its questions. “I just hope that people come with an open mind, (that) people come with a roundtable attitude that this is a conversation we all need to have. And I do think that’s what’s going to happen” Hagenbuch said, expressing a hope that people come to the discussion regardless of their position, “pros,

Krall hopes to “draw on the expertise of these people to generate a conversation among the people who attend about why it is that we need health care reform,” and what to expect from various proposals, he said. “The goal is to increase the mutual understanding of the rationales for health care reform, the reasons for health care reform, what we think are good solutions, solving the problems of health care, and then what kinds of actions we can individually take and what we can reasonably expect to happen as the legislation winds its way through Congress,” Krall said.

So this is a topic that touches everybody, in which we should all have an interest,” he said. Krall does not have a list of future topics set but said he thinks there are several topics for which there is expertise among Routt County residents. — To reach Margaret Hair, call 871-4204 or e-mail

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

A hatchet job so bad it’s good Paul Krugman


In the past, the insurance industry’s power has been a major barrier to health care reform. Most notably, the industry paid for the infamous “Harry and Louise” ads that helped kill the Clinton plan. But times have changed. Last weekend, the lobbying organization America’s Health Insurance Plans, or AHIP, released a report attacking the reform plan just passed Krugman by the Senate Finance Committee. Some news organizations gave the report prominent, uncritical coverage. But health care experts quickly, and correctly, dismissed it as a hatchet job. And the result of AHIP’s blunder may be a better bill than we would otherwise have had. For 2009, it turns out, is not 1993.

Once again, Republicans have tried to kill reform with smears and scare stories. But all they seem to have killed with their cries of “socialism” and warnings about “death panels” is their own credibility. Some form of health care reform is highly likely to pass. So it’s a different game than it was 16 years ago. And it’s a game that the insurance industry apparently doesn’t know how to play. The motivation for the AHIP report seems to have been the decision by the Finance Committee to weaken the penalties for individuals who don’t sign up for insurance, even as it retains regulations requiring that insurers offer the same policies to everyone, regardless of medical history. The industry worries that some people will game the system, remaining uninsured as long as they’re healthy and then signing up when they get sick. This is, believe it or not, a valid concern. Many health care economists

believe that a strong individual mandate, requiring that almost everyone sign up, will be needed to make health reform work. And the Finance Committee probably did weaken the mandate too much. But AHIP, apparently unable to help itself, didn’t stop there. Instead, the report threw every anti-reform argument the authors could think of at the wall, hoping that something would stick. One argument was particularly striking: The claim that attempts to limit Medicare spending would lead to higher insurance premiums. In fact, the report assumes that 100 percent of any reduction in Medicare payments to hospitals will translate into higher costs for patients with private insurance. The only way to justify this claim is to assume that all hospitals are purely charitable institutions, charging as little as they possibly can. Now, some hospitals may fit this description. But all of them? See Krugman, page 9

The reality movement David Brooks


That which can’t continue doesn’t. A nation can spend and spend, pile debt upon debt, but eventually there comes a reality moment when some leader emerges to say enough is enough and when decent people, looking around at themselves and their own best nature, respond by demanding a return to responsibility. In the United States, we’re not at that moment yet. Private debt is being Brooks replaced by public debt. New entitlements are being created, and the money that could be used to ward off fiscal disaster is being used for other things. Here, Democrats still get ahead by promising tax cuts for the bottom 98 percent, and Republicans get ahead by promising tax


cuts for all and Medicare cuts for none. But Britain has hit its reality moment. The Brits are ahead of us when it comes to public indebtedness and national irresponsibility. Spending has been out of control for longer and in a more sustained way. But in that country, the climate of opinion has turned. There, voters are ready for a politician willing to face reality. And George Osborne, who would become the chancellor of the Exchequer in the likely event that his Conservative Party wins the next election, has aggressively seized the moment. In a party conference address this month, Osborne gave the speech that an American politician will someday have to give. He said he is not ideologically hostile to government. “Millions of Britons depend on public services and cannot opt out,” he declared. He defended government workers against those who would deride them as self-serving

bureaucrats: “Conservatives should never use lazy rhetoric that belittles those who are employed by the government.” But, he pivoted, “it is because we treat those who work in our public sector with respect that I want to be straight with you about the choices we face.” The British government needs to cut back. Osborne declared that his government would raise the retirement age. That age was scheduled to rise at some point in the distant future. Osborne vowed to increase it in the next five to 10 years. Osborne declared that there would be no tax cuts any time soon. He said that as a matter of principle, he thinks the top income tax rate of 50 percent is too high. But, he continued, “we cannot even think of abolishing the 50 percent rate in the rich” while others down the income scale are asked to scrimp.

Krugman continued from 8 What’s more, this argument stands the usual logic of markets on its head: If you believe AHIP’s story, competition raises prices instead of reducing them. And it doesn’t matter where the competition comes from: Anyone who gets a better deal, whether it’s Medicare or a private insurer, makes life worse for everyone else. I don’t believe that, and neither should you. The only bad competition the report talks about is competition from the government. Specifically, it claims that a public insurance option would be a bad thing — not because it would be inefficient, but because the public plan would negotiate better prices. Isn’t that an argument for, not

against, such a plan? Which brings us to the ways in which AHIP may have done health reform a favor. As I said, the individual mandate probably should be stronger than it is in the Finance Committee’s bill. But there’s a reason the mandate was weakened: fear that too many people would balk at the cost of insurance, even with the subsidies provided to lower-income individuals and families. So why not address that cost? Aside from making the subsidies larger, which they should be, there are at least two changes to the legislation that would help limit costs. First, health exchanges — special, regulated markets in which individuals and small businesses can buy insurance — can be made stronger, in effect giving small

buyers a better bargaining position. Second, the public option — missing from the Finance Committee’s bill — can be brought back in, giving private insurers some real competition. Also, part of the opposition to a strong individual mandate comes from the sense that Americans will be forced to buy policies from a greedy insurance industry. Giving people, literally, another option — the right to buy into a public plan instead — would defuse that opposition. Even with stronger exc­ hanges and a public option, health reform would probably increase, not reduce, insurance industry profits. But the insurers wanted it all. The good news is that by overreaching, they may have ensured that they won’t get it.

An independent voice with

Republicans need to follow Britain’s lead Brooks continued from 8 ers the same sort of choice that many private sector executives are forced to make. He proposed a public sector pay freeze in order to avoid 100,000 layoffs. He said the pay freeze would apply to all workers except those making less than 18,000 pounds (nearly $29,000) “because I don’t believe in balancing the budget on the backs of the poorest. Nor do you.” There were other austerities. Osborne vowed to cut a program he once supported but which has not proved its worth: a baby bond program that was meant to help offset the costs of childhood. There would no longer be means-tested tax credits for families making more than 50,000 pounds. Osborne’s speech was not an isolated event. The Conservatives

have treated British voters as adults for a year now, with a string of serious economic positions. The Conservatives supported the Labour government bank bailout, even though it was against their political interest to do so. In November, Osborne opposed a cut in the valueadded taxes on the grounds that the cuts were unaffordable and would not produce growth. It is not easy for any conservative party to oppose tax cuts, but this one did it. And the public has responded. The Conservatives now have a dominating lead against Labour. Overall, support for the Conservatives rose by 4 percentage points after Osborne’s speech. The polls reveal that nearly 60 percent of Britons support the austerity measures. The Conservatives have a 21-point lead when it comes

to being honest about public finances and a 14-point lead on economic policy generally. The key is that Osborne is not merely offering pain, but a different economic vision — different from Labour and different from the Thatcherism that was designed to meet the problems of the 1980s. In the United States, the economic crisis has caused many to question capitalism. But Britain has discredited the center-left agenda with its unrelenting public spending, its public development agencies and disappointing public-private investment partnerships. Osborne and David Cameron, the party leader, are offering a responsibility agenda. If any Republican is looking for a way forward, start by doing what they’re doing across the Atlantic.

Unless recycled, all skis have one-way ticket to landfill Ross continued from 2

watch it

families watching their budgets and extend the use of recreational toys made from precious natural resources. Realistically, my Elans would not have sold at last fall’s ski swap — their camber was irreversibly flat. They’d given all they had to give on crystal cold mornings in the gladed tree runs of Priest Creek and on immense, pillow-soft powder bumps down the full length of Tornado. Even if someone had been willing to pay $4.95 for my skis, their ultimate destination would have been the landfill. When you get right down to it, that’s the fate of every set of skis and bindings, except for really classic wooden skis, which will get nailed over a hearth if they are lucky. I salute the Winter Sports Club for “recycling” ski equipment for all of these years. But if we want to be known as Green Ski Town USA, we’re going to have to deal with the reality that eventually, all skis make that long, sad trip to the landfill. Maybe it doesn’t have to be that way. It turns out that the Snowsports Industries of America is way ahead of me. Writer Mary Catherine O’Connor described in her new blog for Outside magazine, The Good Route, how the Snowsports Industries of America began a pilot program last year to recycle skis, boots and snowboards. They were gathered from ski shops across Colorado and put through a process that separated metal and plastic materials. Some of the plastics can be used in building materials. An SIA spokesman reported collecting 100 tons of equipment last year. However, his organization still faces chal-

lenges in meeting its goals of achieving carbon neutrality (in terms of getting old ski equipment to a recycling facility), and in raising the capital to establish a permanent recycling facility. We should all support this effort. It could be years before we add curbside recycling of skis and snowboards here in

Ski Town USA. But you don’t have to wait. You can go to the Ski and Sport Swap from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. today at Steamboat Springs Middle School, support future Olympians and adopt several pairs of skis for a handful of bucks. Even if you don’t intend to ski on your new used boards,

you can sneak them into the back of the garage and store them until SIA gets this ski recycling program completely wired. You’ll feel better about yourself. Tell your spouse it’s your moral obligation. — To reach Tom Ross, call 871-4205 or e-mail

The Boathouse

The summer of 2009 in Aspen made the kind of history wildlife officials and animal lovers don’t want to see again. Nineteen black bears — considered nuisances or dangerous — were killed in the Aspen area, and another 30 were relocated as far away as the Colorado/ New Mexico border. Of the 19 that were killed, at least two were euthanized because they had contact with a human. The Colorado Division of Wildlife logged 6,000 hours in the Aspen area to combat a bear problem that Area Wildlife Manager Perry Will called worse than anywhere else in the state. There weren’t enough area DOW officers to handle the crisis, so they were brought in from other parts of the state to help. The problem was so bad that Will, and more than a dozen other DOW officials, along with Aspen police, Pitkin County sheriff’s officials and elected representatives, gathered for a Town Hall-style meeting Thursday at the Limelight Lodge, where residents offered opinions and suggestions on how to manage the bear problem.

Ideas ran the gamut. They ranged from law enforcement having a zero-tolerance policy for businesses and residences that don’t comply with the local bear-proof container law, to asking the Ute Indians how they manage to coexist with the bruins. Former resident Hinton Harrison offered that restaurants should find a way to muffle the scent of the food they’re cooking so that bears aren’t attracted to the establishments, while local Bill Weiner suggested requiring property managers to advise long-term summer renters about the do’s and don’ts when it comes to the bruins. DOW officials didn’t appear keen on all of the suggestions, including one to have a bearfeeding area, which, they said, would only compound the problem. And while they said they were not there to defend their two-strike policy on nuisance bears and zero-tolerance for dangerous bruins, they were questioned by audience members nonetheless. The twostrike policy in particular — in which a nuisance bear is tagged and relocated on the first call and killed on the second — has actually saved bears, officials said. “We were headed toward legislation that every nuisance bear would have been killed,” said Ron Velarde, northwest regional manager for the wildlife division.

That no-tolerance legislation for nuisance bears, Velarde said, prompted the DOW to create the two-strike policy. This summer, Velarde said his office was barraged with complaints and threats from people about the euthanization of bears. “We get letters saying we need to die,” he said. DOW spokesman Randy Hampton said the agency was willing to listen to many of the suggestions. And after the gathering, he said the best outcome for the meeting would be the follow-up participation, as it pertains to Aspen’s bear problem, from those who attended. Attendees were encouraged to provide their e-mail addresses to form an advisory committee that could work with elected officials and bureaucrats. “If we get 20 e-mail addresses,” Hampton said, “this will be a success.” Aspen’s problem with bears, DOW officials said, is not because of a single factor, but rather several. The habitat happens to be the most ideal in the state to support the bears. That’s compounded by the fact that it’s a resort town that caters to tourists and second-home owners, who aren’t as astute about the bear problems and regulations as the locals are. Toss a nonEnglish speaking sector into the mix, and it’s the recipe for Aspen’s most recent bear crisis, said Hampton, who moderated the discussion.

Boy’s family faces scrutiny Some think 6-year-old’s balloon scare was publicity hoax P. Solomon Banda and Ivan Moreno THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


By all accounts, Richard Heene is an unapologetic selfpromoter who would pursue all sorts of off-the-wall stunts to get media attention. But would he go so far as to hide his 6-year-old son in the rafters of his garage for five hours and make it seem like the boy floated away in a helium balloon? It was a question being asked everywhere Friday, one day after the balloon drama unfolded live on television during a frenzied search before little Falcon Heene was found. The sheriff’s office said it does not believe at this point that the balloon episode was a stunt, but


investigators planned to question the family again today. Doubts surfaced after a series of bizarre TV interviews, including one on CNN in which

Falcon Heene told his parents “you said we did this for a show” when asked why he did not come down from the garage rafters during the search.

Pension board OKs bailout plan Steven K. Paulson THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


The board that oversees Colorado state pensions approved a bailout plan Friday to keep the troubled program from going bankrupt. The major changes to the Public Employees’ Retirement Association include increasing

employee and employer contributions by 2 percent, and reducing cost-of-living increases for current retirees from 3.5 percent this year, capping them at 2 percent. The changes must be approved by lawmakers when they return to work in January. Michael Coulter, a state employee and former state compensation committee member, said the cap on cost-of-living

increases will hurt current retirees who already are struggling to make ends meet. He said the state has a commitment to people who worked 30 years for the state with an understanding that their retirement benefits would be protected. “Any reduction in the cost-ofliving allowance is a violation of that agreement,” Coulter said, adding it could end up in court.

Suicide bomb kills 15 in Iraq THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


A suicide bomber who hid among the Sunni congregation in a northern Iraqi mosque sprayed gunfire at Muslim worshippers Friday and then blew himself up, killing at least 15 people, including the imam leading prayers, officials said. The brazen attack is the latest against Sunni clerics who have increasingly spoken out against al-Qaida in Iraq since U.S. combat troops withdrew from Iraqi cities at the end of June. The clerics and others

AROUND THE WORLD fear militants could take advantage of the transition to step up the kind of sectarian attacks that pushed Iraq to the brink of civil war two years ago. The man who opened fire in the mosque in Tal Afar first shot the imam, Abdul-Satar Hassan, before turning his AK-47 assault rifle on worshippers, witnesses said. He detonated his explosives only after running out of ammunition. Ninety-five people were wounded in the attack, said Ismail Majeed, a doctor at Tal Afar hospital. Hassan, a member of Iraq’s largest Sunni political party, the Iraqi Islamic Party, was among the 15 people killed, he said. Earlier this week, the cleric who leads the biggest Sunni mosque in Baghdad was wounded by a bomb attached to his car. Similar attacks killed a Sunni cleric last week in Saqlawiyah, 45 miles northwest of Baghdad, and last month in Mosul, 225 miles northwest of Baghdad. While violence in Iraq has dropped dramatically since the height of the insurgency, the area in and around Mosul is considered one of the last strongholds of the Sunnibacked insurgency and the site of frequent attacks.

Zimbabwe prime minister boycotts unity government HARARE, ZIMBABWE

Citing the “persecution” of a top aide, Zimbabwe’s prime minister abandoned — at least temporarily — shared rule with President Robert Mugabe, marking a setback to the country’s struggle to emerge from political gridlock, economic collapse and international isolation and sanctions. Morgan Tsvangirai told reporters Friday that his party members would not attend Cabinet meetings or engage in other executive work with Mugabe’s party. His erstwhile governing partners said good riddance, even though both sides need the coalition. “Until confidence has been restored we can’t continue to pretend that everything is well,” Tsvangirai said, referring to a trial scheduled to begin Monday against Roy Bennett, the prime minister’s nominee for deputy agriculture minister who is charged with weapons violations. The charges are linked to long-discredited allegations that Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change plotted Mugabe’s violent overthrow.

Sweat lodge deaths cast negative spotlight on guru SEDONA, ARIZ.

James Arthur Ray led a group of more than 50 followers into a cramped, sauna-like sweat lodge in Arizona last week by convincing them that his words would lead them to spiritual and financial wealth. The mantra has made him a millionaire. People routinely pack Ray’s seminars and follow the motivational guru to weeklong retreats that can cost more than $9,000 a person. But Ray’s self-help empire was thrown into turmoil when two of his followers died after collapsing in the makeshift sweat lodge near Sedona and 19 others were hospitalized. A homicide investigation that followed has cast a critical spotlight on Ray’s company. Critics are citing the sweat lodge tragedy as evidence that Ray is a charlatan who is not to be trusted. A relative of one victim accused Ray of exhibiting a “godlike complex” during the event that he said recklessly abandoned the safety of participants. Dedicated followers say they fully trust Ray to lead them through exercises that would greatly improve their lives.

Wal-Mart, trade price cuts on books CHICAGO

Taking a page from its original playbook, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. launched a full-fledged price war with and a nation of book retailers, lowering online prices on certain highly anticipated hardback titles to $9. The volley of discounts, which began Thursday when the retailer listed prices for some upcoming hardcover releases such as Dean Koontz’ “Breathless” and Stephen King’s “Under the Dome” at $10, was answered with a similar price cut by Amazon, the largest online bookseller. Then the two competitors lowered the prices even further to $9. The book discounts, the latest in a series of aggressive online maneuvers by the world’s largest retailer, could position the company to do to the online marketplace what Walmart stores did to local merchants decades ago. The price war also is foreboding news to the large chain bookstores Borders Group and Barnes & Noble, which have been squeezed by’s discounting and a decline in their music business.

Steamboat rolls past Battle Mountain Dover leads Sailors Chris Freud VAIL DAILY


Steamboat Springs quarterback Austin Hinder completed only one of four passes for 31 yards Friday night against Battle Mountain. But the Sailors didn’t need Hinder’s golden arm as S t e a m b o a t ’s rushing attack was more than enough to defeat Friday’s game: Battle Mountain, Sailors 61 61-21. Huskies 21 Sailors running back Joe Dover rushed for 206 yards and three touchdowns on just seven carries, while Hinder dashed five times for 124 yards and two scores. Hinder and Dover each threw a touchdown pass, and the Sailors, ranked No. 1 by and No. 2 by The Denver Post, cruised to 7-0 overall in 6-0 in the Slope. “The thing we asked of our guys is to come in here and start hard, play and compete and get better,” Sailors coach Aaron Finch said. “That’s what we’ve been talking about all year. We did some good things tonight.” The Huskies did move the ball, but they struggled at key times. “We moved the ball the down See Steamboat, page 19

Hotchkiss just too much Football team takes advantage of Hayden’s mistakes for big win

Luke Graham



With Hayden High School football team on the cusp of doing some good things, Friday’s game against Hotchkiss served as a reminder

of how good football teams take advantage of mistakes. A huge first half turnover and too many second half penalties for Hayden proved to be too much, as league-leading Hotchkiss remained undefeated, picking up a 35-0 win. “The first half we fought our

butts off,” Hayden senior Ben Fulton said. “The second half was totally different. That’s what good football teams do. They take advantage of mistakes.” And Hotchkiss might be as good as they come in Class 1A. The Bulldogs improved to 7-0

overall and 3-0 in league play by doing what Hayden hasn’t been able to do all year. Given any sort of opportunity, Hotchkiss instantly capitalized. The first came early in the See Hayden, page 19

The Steamboat Springs High School boys tennis team entered Friday’s state tournament action praying for help. It didn’t receive nearly enough to make up for a disastrous first two rounds of the Pueblo-based tournament, but a day of gutty JOEL REICHENBERGER/STAFF play paid off, and in the last five Steamboat Springs’ Keegan Burger stretches for a return Friday at the minutes of Friday’s action, two entries punched their ticket to state tennis tournament in Pueblo. Burger will play today for third place.

Saturday’s consolation finals. Junior Keegan Burger, playing at No. 2 singles, and the No. 4 doubles team of sophomore Gabri Erspamer and freshman Kyle Rogers pulled off stunning rallies to win their consolation semifinal matches. They play at 9 a.m. today for

third place. “Today was a relief,” coach John Aragon said. Thursday “we came up on the short end of close matches, but today we were on the plus side, and that was a real positive for Steamboat.” Friday started as miserably as Thursday ended, but all seemed right as the sun hung low in the sky, and Steamboat finally caught a few breaks. That started with Burger. See Tennis, page 18

Burger was one of two Sailors defeated Thursday to get playback opportunities. He was the only one to take advantage. He blasted D’Evelyn senior Alex Beaman, 6-2, 6-1, in the consolation quarterfinals, but he looked like a different player less than an hour later when he took the court against Jeff Hudson, a highly seeded Mullen senior. Hudson built seemingly insurmountable leads in each of the match’s two sets. He led 5-2 in the first and 5-1 in the second. “But I refuse to lose,” Burger said afterward, grinning widely. He charged back in both sets with impeccable tennis. He was powerful with his returns, suddenly breaking Hudson’s serve at will, and consistent enough with his own service games. He worked the baseline hard over long points, continually trying Hudson’s backhand and working him into impossible return attempts. He also deployed a ridicuJOEL REICHENBERGER/STAFF lous power forehand down Kyle Rogers connects with a ball Friday at the state tennis tournament in Pueblo. After the line just often enough.

Hayden next faces undefeated Meeker on Friday second quarter. With the score knotted at 0, Hayden was driving the ball down the field for what looked like a go-ahead score. Tigers running back Jake Walker caught a screen pass and was moving inside the Bulldogs 20-yard line when he was stripped from behind. On the next play, Hotchkiss quarterback Ryan Spor found Pat Sullivan up the right side for 85 yards. A two-point conversion gave the Bulldogs an 8-0 lead. “That was a big momentum swing,” said Spor, who had 159 yards passing, 123 rushing and contributed three touchdowns. ‘We get the ball back and went for it right away. I looked at coach, and he signaled for the fly route.” Hayden’s defense held for the rest of the half, before second half penalties did the Tigers in. In five second half drives, penalties on every drive put Hayden’s offense in long yardage

situations. “Penalties just killed us,” said Hayden coach Shawn Baumgartner, whose team had 8 penalties for 60 yards in the second half. “You can’t go first and 20 for three straight series. It’s too much to make it up. It doesn’t matter who you are. First and 20, you put yourself in such a hole. They know you have to throw the ball in that situation, so they pin their ears back and get after you.” It did prove to be too much.

welcomes in undefeated Meeker for a 7 p.m. game Friday at Hayden High School. “Meeker is every bit as good as these guys,” Baumgartner said. “We just need to find a way to play more consistent.”

Steamboat coach excited about Dover’s improvement Steamboat continued from 17 the field, and we couldn’t finish our drives like we have the last couple of weeks,” Huskies coach David Joyce said. “The last couple of weeks, we had gotten better at finishing our drives, and it seemed like tonight, we’d miss one block or we couldn’t break a tackle like we’ve been doing. It was frustrating.” The Sailors needed just two plays — a 21-yards run from

Dover and a 47-yarder from Hinder — and Steamboat was rolling. Dover broke off touchdown runs of 50, 60 and 60 yards in the first half. Given that the senior fractured his back when he was in eighth grade and only had it correctly diagnosed last year, Finch is really excited for his running back. “He’s getting faster every game,” Finch said. “He working

his way into shape and doing the things he had the potential to do. You saw the burst he has tonight.” Hinder hooked up with Dylan Pivarnik for a 31-yard TD strike as the Sailors led, 41-0 at the half. Hinder started the second half with a 53-yard scamper, and then Steamboat put in its reserves. With a running clock, Battle Mountain did show some fight in its home-

coming game. Jon Simpson, who ran hard all night, got the Huskies’ first score with a 3-yard plunge. Quarterback Jake Engle fired a 21-yard touchdown pass to Cody Hervert. Steamboat answered with a 47-yard touchdown from Dover to Jack Spady. Spady also picked a pass and returned it 29 yards for a touchdown in the first half. Steamboat is home at 7 p.m. Oct. 23 for rival Moffat County.

Overboard ® Chip Dunham

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2009 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Eminem, 37; Wyclef Jean, 37; Chris Kirkpatrick, 38; Margot Kidder, 61 Happy Birthday: Take on whatever challenge comes your way. You have to face facts and be willing to move on. Work may be the necessary evil in your life right now but it can be the path to freedom. Be diligent, organized and wellinformed about the task you must perform. This is a great time to turn losses into gains. Your numbers are 3, 11, 14, 25, 28, 36, 47 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Consider whether you can gain from the connections you make or if they will end up costing you emotionally or financially. Make your decisions based on what works for you. Surround yourself with people who accept you as you are. ★★★ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Dance to your own beat instead of being a follower. If you separate yourself from the crowd, you will be offered something that interests you. Get all the facts and do the math.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The company you keep will make all the difference when it comes to opportunities to excel. Don't lose sight of what you have to offer. Your charm and competitive drive will lead you to the finish line. ★★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Ignore the little things that are bothering you and you will avoid ruining your day and everyone's plans. Work on a hobby, pamper your own needs or surround yourself with people you can relate to. Trade in frustration for entertainment. ★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can make a lasting impression if you get together with friends, neighbors or anyone you want to get to know better. Your lifestyle will attract someone who is looking for a change. A partnership can be started with someone who has as much to offer as you. ★★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may want to consider making a career move or picking up more skills in order to raise your appeal in the professional market. You can update your image in order to present yourself as someone who is forward-thinking. ★★★

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Emotional instability will set in if you let someone's criticism or complaints get to you. Remove yourself from any situation that is detrimental to your emotional wellbeing. Gravitate toward people who are supportive, positive and working toward the same goal. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Someone may be giving you false information or the circumstances may change drastically, making it important for you to make further observations before moving ahead with your plans. A slight change can mean the difference between a small gain and a big one. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will be entertaining, giving everyone you encounter a feel-good impression. The more people you touch and talk to about your ideas, the more support you will get. Stick to the truth, however. ★★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Talks will lead to worry about the way things are and where everyone stands on family issues. Not addressing what's going on in your personal life will allow someone to meddle, making matters worse. Speak up. ★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Keep busy by getting involved in a community event or going on a jaunt that will lead to a unique destination. The journey you take now, whether it's physical or mental, will aid you in reevaluating your current situation without interference. ★★★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Taking on someone else's problems because you don't know how to say no will be a mistake you will live to regret. You face changes of your own that have to be sorted out first or you will lose ground emotionally and financially. ★★★ Birthday Baby: You are creative, intelligent and popular. You are a leader who inspires and motivates all with whom you come in contact. 2009 UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Friday’s activities were designed to entertain students out of school on fall break, but Wyman will be offering all those activities and more to the public during today’s Wyman’s Pumpkin Patch. Proceeds from the event today will go to help produce this year’s Winter Festival. The Community Budget Center donated used clothing for the children to use in making their scarecrows. All three of the characters made Friday will be displayed around downtown Craig for the Halloween season. After they finished making Ella, Alyssa’s group moved on to pumpkin painting. Zach Patterson, 8, brought back the biggest pumpkin he could find. “I just grabbed the biggest one over there,” he said. “It’s going to be red and black and a scary pumpkin.” Some of the students were more concerned with painting their faces than their pumpkins, but each of them would have a unique work of art to take home. “I’m going to make the

They got so excited coming down here.” The museum’s office manager Nicky Boulger was outside helping the students paint their pumpkins. She said Friday’s preview for the Boys & Girls Club and today’s event are meant to be a fun day for the kids. “It’s meant to be a fun day for the whole family,” she said. “We’ll have homemade pies, caramel apples and Halloween balloons.”

Boys say they’re not afraid of ghosts, but they are.” “No I’m not,” Zach replied from across the table. After setting their pumpkins out to dry, the group sprinted to the hay maze. Isaac Jacobson, Boys & Girls Club director of operations, patrolled the tops of the hay bales as his students raced through the maze.
