Dewey Williams hasn’t run out of work in 40 years. Williams and his wife, Janet Williams, are celebrating four decades in business with J.D.W., a Steamboat Springs company that does a little bit of everything — heating and ventilation, refrigeration, air conditioning, sheet metal needs and more. “Whatever you want built,

After an absence of more than five years, Greyhound buses again will roll along U.S. Highway 40 between Salt Lake City and Denver. The daily service resumes today. The all-new buses will travel along U.S. 40, stopping in Steamboat Springs, Milner, Hayden, Craig and a host of other cities during a daily commute with wireless Internet service, more leg room and buses designed for laptops. The state of Utah and the Colorado Department of Trans­ portation agreed to subsidize the cost of the route, which was stopped in 2004 because of low ridership. The bus will stop and ticket agents will be present at the

Stock Bridge Transit Center in Steamboat and the Craig Regional Transit Center under an agreement with Steamboat Springs Transit. Transit Operations Manager Jonathan Flint said Greyhound will be required to maintain the two facilities under the agreement. The bus also will stop at the regional bus stops in Milner and Hayden for shorter durations. “Expanding this route was important to Greyhound and both states,” Steamboat Springs Public Works Director Philo Shelton said. Shelton said Colorado and Utah agreed to buy the buses for the route, and Colorado will provide $380,000 per year in operating expenses. The service will be marketed for skier retreats during the winter.

Ticket information Tickets for the Greyhound bus service may be purchased at the Stock Bridge Transit Center before each departure. The temporary hours for the ticket office are 1:30 to 4 p.m. Greyhound is offering $1 one-way tickets until Oct. 26. Tickets also can be purchased at www.greyhound. com, but the promotional fare does not apply. Buses are scheduled to depart Steamboat Springs westbound at 3:40 p.m. and eastbound at 4 p.m. daily, beginning today.

Until Oct. 26, the bus line is offering promotional $1 oneway tickets to Denver or Salt Lake City. After that, the tickets from Steamboat Springs to Denver will cost about $80 for the round-trip. Each way will take an estimated four hours. The discount rates may See Greyhound, page 12

Focus turns to state pot laws Department of Justice makes medical marijuana stance clear Zach Fridell

Pilot & Today staff

Steamboat Springs

Local medical marijuana users and dispensaries no longer need to worry about federal prosecutors. It’s the state law that still preoccupies them. On Monday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced that it will no longer be a priority to prosecute medical marijuana users who adhere to state law, even if that contradicts federal law. “As a general matter, pursuit of these priorities should not focus federal resources in your States on individuals whose actions are in clear and unambiguous compliance with existing state laws providing for the medical use of marijuana,” Deputy Attorney General David Ogden wrote in a memo addressed to federal prosecutors in states where medical marijuana laws exist. D and C Medical Marijuana, LLC and Therapeutic Massage co-owner Charlie Magnuson, of Steamboat Springs, said he was closely following the decisions by the federal government, and he hopes the memo will provide some clarity. “That’s a good deal for everyone involved in the medical marijuana business,” he said. Rocky Mountain Remedies dispensary co-owner Kevin Fisher said the memo makes clear what Holder has hinted at in previous months. “Holder made those verbal statements for several months saying the feds were not going to interfere with state and

local laws,” said Fisher, also of Steamboat Springs. Fisher said he decided to open his dispensary based on his belief that it was legally permissible, but he said operating a business where medical marijuana is sold to licensed users is still not without legal challenges. At a meeting of the Colorado Board of Health in July, regulators considered changing some rules that would have made the “dispensary model untenable,” Fisher said. “Hopefully we get some reasonable state regulations in place so everyone is comfortable and knows under what laws they’re operating,” he said. Hayden resident Don Nord was caught in the battle between federal and state laws when his house was raided Oct. 13, 2003. Authorities seized his medical marijuana, and Nord went to court to fight the seizure, but he lost in a July 2005 ruling. Since that time, he said he’s had no trouble finding medical marijuana — and no trouble with the law in its use. Even so, Nord, who has campaigned for medical marijuana, said more regulation may be needed at the state level. He said he sent in his application to renew his medical marijuana certificate in August but has not yet received a response. He said he suspects it is because of an overwhelming demand on the office. “I run into cases that the people on medical marijuana do not need to be on it,” he said. “There’s something wrong here.” The All Crimes Enforcement

Eric Sheets stood on the side of Colorado Highway 13 north of Craig on a sunny fall day with a dog, a donkey, a friend and a vision. Ten years ago, Sheets was studying to be an orthodontist in Ohio. A car wreck in summer 1999 left Sheets with the possibility of losing one of his arms, and a wake-up call from the universe. “I knew I had to leave and see the country before it’s too late,” Sheets said. “And what I’ve learned is, we’re all the same wherever you are.” Sheets, 31, his donkey, Moses, his dog, Buck, and his cameraman, Nick Jenkins, 18, who joined him a month ago, are

walking from Ohio to Seattle to try to meet Bill Gates. Sheets has been on the road since Memorial Day 2008. He arrived Friday night in Craig and will stay for an indefinite period. Sheets was inspired when Gates retired from Microsoft, and he asked anyone to come to him with ideas on how to better educate children. And Sheets had an idea. Instead of riding his motorcycle to Gates’ doorstep to make his proposal, he decided he’d be better received if he managed to introduce himself to the world as he walked there — barefoot every step of the way. Along the road, he said, he meets, inspires and encourages See Walk, page 13

Team, formerly the Grand, Routt and Moffat Narcotics Enforcement Team, was the office that raided Nord’s home. ACET Commander Garrett Wiggins said his office does not focus on medical marijuana users. “As long as they stay within the legal guidelines,” the dispensaries and users will not be targeted, he said. “And people who are violating those guidelines, we’ll put some attention on them.” Wiggins said he does not have any confirmed cases of people violating Colorado’s medical marijuana laws.

writer, resident for 45 years, says: “Northwest Colorado received more than $50 million in grants and partnership funds during Kevin’s tenure. Kevin provided the leadership to pull people together at local, regional and state levels to make this happen. I was proud to have worked on the Yampa River Legacy Project with Kevin. It gained state-wide recognition in preserving open space for the City. We quadrupled City holdings of parkland during those years through partnerships.”

received dozens of phone calls from excited folks last August after an e-mail made its way around the Internet announcing that Mars was about to make its closest pass by Earth in 50,000 years and would appear as big as the Jimmy Westlake full moon Celestial News in our sky.

In January 2006, Saturn, lower right, passed in front of the famous Beehive star cluster. On Nov. 1 of this year, the red planet Mars will do the same. The Beehive is faintly visible to the unaidedeye on a moonless night and was known to the ancient Greeks and Romans as the Manger.

Well, I have some good news and some bad news about Mars. First, the good news. Mars will pass close to the Earth in January. The bad news is that it will not appear anywhere near as large as the full moon. In fact, 2010’s opposition of Mars will be the least favorable since 1995. That’s not to say Mars will not shine brightly in our night sky this winter. It

will. But a telescope always is required to see Mars as anything other than a sparkly, red point of light. On Jan. 29, Mars will pass about 62 million miles from Earth. That’s about 250 times farther away from us than the moon — not exactly a close encounter. Still, Mars will glow brightly in our sky all winter, like a burning ember.

Workshop touts funding

Wednesday water meeting could benefit municipalities, HOAs If you go


Rural communities, metro districts and even local homeowners’ associations could benefit from a Wednesday workshop about federal funding for water and wastewater systems, organizers said. Local staff of U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-CO, will join representatives from the Colorado Rural Water Association, the Rural Com­ munity Assistance Corpor­ation and the U.S. Department of Agriculture from 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday, at Centennial Hall on 10th Street, to provide information about funding and technical assistance for water systems. The Routt County communities of Milner, Phippsburg and Oak Creek are each pursuing water system improvements. “Our water and wastewater program has significant funding,” said Pattie Snidow, Northwest Colorado’s area director for the USDA’s rural development programs. “I think

Hayden Valley Elementary School fourth-grader Gabrielle Lewis spent part of her Monday morning writing a story while sitting in a tree. She was part of a group of fourth- and fifth-grade classes that took a field trip to Yampatika’s Environmental Learning Center at the city of Steamboat Springs-owned Legacy Ranch near Colorado Highway 131 and U.S. Highway 40. The students spent the day participating in different environmental education activities. Gabrielle said she enjoyed the opportunity to do schoolwork outside. “I get to be outdoors,” she said. “Most of the time we’re inside, except for recess. I like the outdoors.” The 55 students were broken into three groups to learn about animals and habitats, the forest and beetles, and they also participated in a creative writing exercise, said Sonja Macys, Yampatika’s executive director. The Environmental Learning Center provides the nonprofit organization, which has delivered environmental education to children and adults in Steamboat Springs for the past 17 years, with a home and place

to offer hands-on learning experiences. “One of the things we believe is kids have to be outside and enjoy the outdoors,” Macys said. “Or they won’t be stewards.” In addition to promoting stewardship and a love of the outdoors, Hayden Valley Elementary fourth-grade teacher Keri Leudtke said learning shouldn’t always be confined to the classroom. “They can learn so much

(more) in an environment like this than we could ever offer in a classroom,” she said. “They’ll remember this. The more we can expose them to our environment and our community, the more they’ll be able to give back when they’re older, and even starting now. “They don’t get to write in a tree in our classroom,” Leudtke added.

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

The catastrophic option Ross Douthat

The New York Times

Three major problems plague American health care. The cost of premiums is eating up an ever larger share of take-home pay. The cost of our public health care programs is eating up an ever larger share of the federal budget. And millions of people who need insurance are priced out of the market. Now that Max Baucus’ version of health care legislation has been blessed, Douthat at least provisionally, by the hands of Sen. Olympia Snowe, of Maine, it’s increasingly likely that Congress will pass reforms that address the third problem, while making the first two problems somewhat worse. If a Baucus-esque bill passes into law, we should expect a significant decline in the number of Americans without health

insurance. But for Americans who have employer-based insurance — still the lion’s share of the working-age population — premiums could climb more swiftly than ever. That’s exactly what’s happened under Massachusetts’s recent reform, the best state-level parallel to what Congress is attempting. The Baucus bill includes measures that might partially counteract this trend — delivery system reforms, for instance, and an excise tax on the highestpremium plans. But their effects are speculative; the Bay State’s swiftly rising premiums are facts on the ground. Meanwhile, our long-term fiscal trajectory will remain as unsustainable as ever. Baucus’ legislation is revenue-neutral only under rosy political assumptions, and it adds another entitlement to an alreadygroaning system. For most conservatives, this is reason enough to vote against the bill. But you can understand why many legislators

might feel differently. Of our three overlapping health care crises, the problem of the uninsured has the most immediate and heart-wrenching human costs. It’s the aspect of our system that looks the shabbiest by the standards of the developed world. And it’s an issue where liberals have shown more initiative than conservatives. Yes, there are conservative proposals that would improve access to insurance. But congressional Republicans are only talking them up — and gingerly, at that — because the Democrats have the whip hand. Across 12 years in the majority, the Republican Party showed little interest in tackling the problem. If you’re a wavering moderate who’s concerned about the uninsured, then, whatever bill emerges from this month’s negotiations might seem like an opportunity that won’t come round again. But any legislators voting “yes” should See Douthat, page 9

The banks are not all right Paul Krugman

The New York Times

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. OK, maybe not literally the worst, but definitely bad. And the contrast between the immense good fortune of a few and the continuing suffering of all too many boded ill for the future. I’m talking, of course, about the state of the banks. The lucky few garnered most of the headlines, as many reacted with fury to Krugman the spectacle of Goldman Sachs making record profits and paying huge bonuses even as the rest of America, the victim of a slump made on Wall Street, continues to bleed jobs. But it’s not a simple case of flourishing banks versus ailing workers: banks that

are actually in the business of lending, as opposed to trading, are still in trouble. Most notably, Citigroup and Bank of America, which silenced talk of nationalization earlier this year by claiming that they had returned to profitability, are now — you guessed it — back to reporting losses. Ask the people at Goldman, and they’ll tell you that it’s nobody’s business but their own how much they earn. But as one critic recently put it: “There is no financial institution that exists today that is not the direct or indirect beneficiary of trillions of dollars of taxpayer support for the financial system.” Indeed: Goldman has made a lot of money in its trading operations, but it was only able to stay in that game thanks to policies that put vast amounts of public money at risk, from the bailout of AIG to the guarantees extended to many of Goldman’s bonds. So who was this thundering bank critic? None other than Lawrence Summers,

the Obama administration’s chief economist — and one of the architects of the administration’s bank policy, which up until now has been to go easy on financial institutions and hope that they mend themselves. Why the change in tone? Administra­ tion officials are furious at the way the financial industry, just months after receiving a gigantic taxpayer bailout, is lobbying fiercely against serious reform. But you have to wonder what they expected to happen. They followed a softly, softly policy, providing aid with few strings, back when all of Wall Street was on the ropes; this left them with very little leverage over firms such as Goldman that are now, once again, making a lot of money. But there’s an even bigger problem: Although the wheeler-dealer side of the financial industry, aka trading operations, is highly profitable again, the part of See Krugman, page 9 Bruce Tinsley allows readers to submit comments on stories, to create their own blogs and to participate in our Reader Forum.

The current system can’t continue as it is community first

We desperately need to pass financial reform Krugman continued from 8 banking that really matters — lending, which fuels investment and job creation — is not. Key banks remain financially weak, and their weakness is hurting the economy as a whole. You may recall that earlier this year there was a big debate about how to get the banks lending again. Some analysts, myself included, argued that at least some major banks needed a large injection of capital from taxpayers, and that the only way to do this was to temporarily nationalize the most troubled banks. The debate faded out, however, after Citigroup and Bank of America, the banking system’s weakest links, announced surprise profits. All was well, we were told, now that the banks were profitable again. But a funny thing happened on the way back to a sound

banking system: Last week both Citi and B of A announced losses in the third quarter. What happened? Part of the answer is that those earlier profits were in part a figment of the accountants’ imaginations. More broadly, however, we’re looking at payback from the real economy. In the first phase of the crisis, Main Street was punished for Wall Street’s misdeeds; now broad economic distress, especially persistent high unemployment, is leading to big losses on mortgage loans and credit cards. And here’s the thing: The continuing weakness of many banks is helping to perpetuate that economic distress. Banks remain reluctant to lend, and tight credit, especially for small businesses, stands in the way of the strong recovery we need. So now what? Summers still insists that the administration

did the right thing: More government provision of capital, he says, would not “have been an availing strategy for solving problems.” Whatever. In any case, as a political matter the moment for radical action on banks has clearly passed. The main thing for the time being is probably to do as much as possible to support job growth. With luck, this will produce a virtuous circle in which an improving economy strengthens the banks, which then become more willing to lend. Beyond that, we desperately need to pass effective financial reform. For if we don’t, bankers will soon be taking even bigger risks than they did in the run-up to this crisis. After all, the lesson from the last few months has been very clear: When bankers gamble with other people’s money, it’s heads they win, tails the rest of us lose.

This election is about community values and the direction of the current city council. Do you want to continue with a council that really does put developers first? Or do you want to change to a city council that puts community values first? As a council member, I will be balanced and moderate. I will put the community first.

by Harvard’s Martin Feldstein, the government would provide vouchers for the purchase of private catastrophic plans. Under a more liberal version, like the one sketched out by Berkeley’s Brad DeLong, the government itself would act as the insurer. And liberals and conservatives would no doubt disagree about where to set the income threshold, and what additional interventions to support. The basic outline, though, could find support across the ideological spectrum. The problem is finding champions in Washington, where the political incentives always cut against reforms that fundamentally disrupt the status quo. DeLong called his vision “an unrealistic, impractical, utopian plan.” For now, he’s right. But the system can’t continue as it is. Soon, we’ll need reforms that do disrupt the status quo — and a plan that seems unrealistic today might suddenly look like the only sustainable alternative.

have no illusions about what they’re voting for. This version of reform probably won’t make health care more affordable for most Americans, or place the system on firmer footing for the long run. Despite all the talk about a once-in-a-generation opportunity, our political class barely will have finished congratulating itself before increasing costs will force everyone back to the negotiating table to consider more radical approaches. We know what one such approach would look like. It’s the eventual endgame that liberals pushing a “public option” are aiming for: a federal takeover of the health-insurance sector, paid for by rising tax rates, in which the government guarantees universal access while using its monopoly power to hold down costs. But there’s another path, equally radical, that’s more in keeping with the traditional

American approach to government, taxation and free enterprise. This approach would give up on the costly goal of insuring everyone for everything, forever. Instead, it would seek to insure Americans only against costs that exceed a certain percentage of their income, while expecting them to pay for everyday medical expenditures out of their own pockets. Such a system would provide universal catastrophic health insurance, in other words, while creating a free market for noncatastrophic care. In the process, it would marry a central conservative insight — that we’ll never control spending so long as Americans are insulated from the true price of their medical care — to the admirable liberal premise that nobody should go bankrupt paying for life-saving treatment. The details would vary depending on your political predilections. Under the more freemarket approach, championed

educational activities also were designed to help grab the stu­ dents’ interest. Yampatika Naturalist Mich­­ elle Visocky taught a lesson about how the mountain pine beetle has affected local pine trees. Naturalist Elaine Sturges gave a presentation about ani­ mals and their natural habitats. And afterward, to demonstrate how deer survive in their habi­ tat, she had the students play a game called “Oh Deer.” Some students were deer, while others represented food, water or shelter. The students faced one another. The students pretending to be deer had to find another student who rep­ resented food. If there was no food, they pretended to die. Afterward, Sturges showed the students a graph from the game, which illustrated how the students pretending to be deer flourished or died off, based on the resources that were available to them. Sturges said lecturing stu­ dents about how deer survive in their habitat would have “gone in one ear and out the other.” “Hands-on learning and active participation is going to

Sheets’ proposed education program revolves around an interactive touchscreen device, designed to be a learning tool for any occasion. “It’s going to be a tool for teachers,” he said. “It’s individualized so a teacher will know where a kid is at each new school year. If they don’t understand something, their device will give them extra help and present it in a way they can understand.” He said the current educational system leaves children behind if they don’t understand a concept or have a different learning style. “Just because we pass a test at 70 percent, it means we still don’t understand 30 percent of it,” Sheets said. “Then on Monday, the teacher just goes on to the next lesson. You can only repair half of a car if you have half the tools. We need to inspire kids.” He said his system will be designed for everyone from toddlers to the elderly, and it is an answer to the world’s need for lifelong learning and “education instead of vocation.” “A 5-year-old always asks, ‘Why, why why?’” he said. “We get them into school, and just tell them to shush. But we’ve

With an arsenal of cell phones for updating their Web site, a high-definition camera for recording their adventure and a satellite tracking device, all charged by a portable solar panel mounted on Moses the donkey’s back, the pair keeps in touch with the rest of the world. However, Jenkins said the two learned last week that the electronics don’t provide a safeguard against Mother Nature. The two were stranded on the Continental Divide in Wyoming during a snowstorm for three days last week. They didn’t know when or if the snow would stop, and they had no cell phone service. Sheets went to the road and flagged down a truck. It was Jared and Cori Soron, of Craig, who pulled over to answer a few questions about the weather. “I was a little frightened” Jared Soron said. “It was a little weird. It was just this guy, and he was talking about a donkey, and I didn’t see any donkey.” But when he arrived home,

he looked up their Web site,, and said he was inspired by what they were doing. Later that night, Soron’s truck appeared again, bearing some jerky, hand warmers and some hunter’s orange to protect them during hunting season. He also offered them a place to stay when they made it to Craig. Friday afternoon, with Moses’ new hunting hat fit perfectly around his ears, the cart got a flat tire a few miles from Craig. It was Jared who showed up with lunch and a new tire tube. “People like (Jared) have much better things to do all day,” Sheets said. “They don’t have to come over here, help us fix our flat tire and bring us sandwiches. People do good for other people all day long. You just don’t hear about it on the news.” Jenkins said his favorite part of the journey is meeting people from all walks of life. From staying with impoverished people with fewer belongings than their ragged group, or being invited into expensive homes, Jenkins said he’s been surprised at humanity’s overwhelming generosity to strangers.

Soroco’s state title game


his is Soroco’s red-letter game. It’s the one Rams players, coaches and fans circled, highlighted and looked at prior to the season. Come Friday at 7 p.m., the 7-0 Soroco football team will meet the 7-0 Norwood team at Soroco High School. When Soroco coach David Bruner talked weeks ago about the season’s outlook, he said there was potential for this game to be big. But now it’s bigger than just big. This is Soroco’s state championship game. Because of Colorado High School Activities Association rules, when Soroco dropped from Class 1A to eight-man football, the team was placed on a two-year probationary period, essentially making the Rams ineligible for postseason play. Well, in year two, there is something special brewing in South Routt — playoffs or not. Sure, a perfect 8-0 season won’t even get the Rams in the playoffs, but that’s not really what this game is about. Four years ago, the Soroco football program was nearly dead. The Rams struggled with numbers, which in turn led to huge struggles on the field. But Bruner, who was the defensive coordinator four years ago, started building something. He got players to buy into his program. It would have been easy for any of the Soroco players who were freshmen that year to give up. But they didn’t, and now the Rams have an opportunity to do something no South Routt team has done in a long time. Bruner said the last time a Soroco team went undefeated was 1968. But beyond that, nobody would have batted an eye if any of Soroco’s four seniors or other players wanted to play in See Graham, page 18

Denver Broncos wide receiver Eddie Royal, No. 19, gets past San Diego Chargers cornerback Paul Oliver as he returns a kickoff for a 93-yard score in the first quarter Monday at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. Royal also returned a punt for a touchdown in the second quarter of the Broncos’ 34-23 win.

Broncos wide receiver runs back kickoff and punt for touchdowns in 34-23 win Bernie Wilson

The Associated Press


Eddie Royal became the first player in Broncos history to return a kickoff and a punt for touchdowns in the same game, leading undefeated Denver to a wild 34-23 win against the San Diego Chargers on Monday night.

The Broncos didn’t get an offensive touchdown until Kyle Orton threw a Monday’s 19-yard pass to game: tight end Tony Broncos 34 Scheffler late in Chargers 23 the third quarter for a 24-23 lead. Denver added a field goal by Matt Prater and a late 5-yard

touchdown catch by Brandon Stokley that was upheld on review. This is the fifth time the Broncos have been 6-0, the first since going 13-0 in 1998 en route to winning their second straight Super Bowl behind John Elway. They opened a 3 1/2-game lead in the AFC West against threetime defending division champion San Diego (2-3).

Denver outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil had two sacks to extend his NFL lead to 10. His second sack caused Philip Rivers to fumble, with Vonnie Holliday recovering to set up Prater’s 29-yard field goal. The Broncos sacked Rivers five times, three in the fourth quarter. See Broncos, page 18

Mathis’ RBI double in 11th wins it for LA Greg Beacham

When Derek Jeter led off Game 3 with a homer into the bullpen, this American League Championship Series seemed uncomplicated. Power hitting and steady pitching appeared to be driving New York to the World Series.

About 261 minutes, 14 pitchers, six homers and several big blunders later, a winning hit by a backup catcher left only one thing certain in this cuc­ koo series: The Los Angeles Angels won’t be trampled by the mighty Yankees. Jeff Mathis drove home Howie Kendrick with a two-out

double in the 11th inning, and the Angels survived a second straight ALCS thriller, beating New York, 5-4, on Monday to trim the Yankees’ series lead to 2-1. “There was a lot of great baseball on that field this afternoon,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “There were a lot

of twists and turns, and both teams played a terrific game. We just got it done at the end.” Kendrick, himself a parttime infielder, homered and tripled before singling with two outs in the 11th off rookie Alfredo Aceves. Mathis followed with his drive up against the left-field wall, and Kendrick See ALCS, page 19

Speedy little Darren Sproles, of the Chargers, got in on the action when he returned a punt 77 yards for a touchdown for a 20-17 lead that held up at halftime. Sproles caught Brett Kern’s punt, ran up the left sideline, got a nice block at about the 50, cut inside and was gone. Just more than a minute earlier, Kaeding kicked a 44-yard field goal. On Nov. 11, 2007, Sproles returned a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns in a 23-21 win against Indianapolis. The Chargers ran 22 plays to only six for the Broncos in the first quarter, in what seemed more like fast-break basketball than football.

Rams believe they’re part of something big

Royal is the 11th player in NFL history to return a kickoff and a punt for a touchdown in a game. He had a 93-yard kickoff return and a 71-yard punt return. “You’ve got to believe it can happen before you do it,” he said. “I’ve got a lot of faith in the guys in front of me, so I wasn’t surprised. “You want to kind of give a boost to the team on special teams. We were able to do that today.” After the Chargers were forced to settle for a field goal following a sensational drive late in the first quarter, Royal took the kickoff at the 7, found

a big hole at about the 35, cut inside of kicker Nate Kaeding at the 50 and raced down the left sideline to give the Broncos a 7-3 lead. In the second quarter, Royal fielded Mike Scifres’ punt on the bounce at the 29, worked his way inside, then outraced the coverage to the outside to give Denver a 17-10 lead. “Man, it was a great feeling. The guys did a great job of blocking,” he said about the second return. “I’ve got to give them a lot of credit. They opened up the seams and it was a home run.” Royal’s electrifying returns at first silenced Qualcomm Stadium, then had Chargers fans booing.

Steamboat or Hayden. There, they could have had a chance to play in the postseason, and many Rams would have contributed in a big way

as Sailors or Tigers. But this football team has transcended the game. Interest in athletics — not just football — is at an all-time high at Soroco. Part of that is Bruner’s infec-

tious personality and ability to get players to play hard for him. But maybe the biggest reason is these players really believe they’re part of something unique. These Rams aren’t just bonded because they’re teammates. No, the Rams firmly believe they’re part of something bigger than just a football game on Friday night. They’re leading the charge of an athletic program that at one point nearly died. So when Norwood steps on the field Friday — the team’s postseason bid already secured — Soroco will play one more time together. The Rams will have a whole community cheering for them. — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail

They were one out from defeat. A moment later, Jimmy Rollins put the Fightin’ Phils within one win of the World Series. Rollins lined a tworun double with two outs in the ninth inning off All-Star closer Jonathan Broxton and the Philadelphia Phil­ lies rallied past the Los Angeles Dodgers, 5-4, on Monday night for a 3-1 lead in the National League Championship Series. The defending champions can earn their second consecutive pennant with a victory at home in Game 5 on Wednesday night. Cole Hamels, last year’s NLCS and World Series MVP, will take the mound for the Phillies. Clayton Kershaw or Vicente Padilla will start for Los Angeles. “This is big,” Rollins said. “The pressure’s all on them.” Trailing, 4-3, the Phillies started their rally with one out in the ninth when pinch-hitter Matt Stairs walked on four

pitches against Broxton. Stairs hit a two-run homer off Broxton in Game 4 of the NLCS last year at Dodger Stadium. Broxton then hit Carlos Ruiz with a pitch, but pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs hit a soft liner to third for the second out. Rollins, just 3 for 18 in the series to that point, then ripped a 99 mph fastball to right-center and the ball rolled all the way to the wall.

New York (Sabathia 19-8) at Los Angeles (Kazmir 10-9), 5:57 p.m.


slid home well ahead of a desperate throw, setting off an onfield celebration of the backups’ bonanza. Mathis, a .211 hitter in the regular season, came up with his third late-inning, extra-base hit of this outlandish series, just two days after the clubs’ 310-minute, 13-inning icy epic in Game 2. “Obviously, it’s the biggest hit of my life,” Mathis said. “For Howie to have the at-bat he did right there, and to get on base and put one in the gap to win the game, it’s a pretty good feeling.” If the Angels had any lingering doubts about their ability to match up with the big-money Yankees after two discouraging losses in the chilly Bronx, those worries melted during their comeback in the balmy Orange County sun. “Man, that was one of the craziest games,” said Angels outfielder Torii Hunter, who lamented his 1-for-5 effort. “It was an emotional roller coaster, man. We were up, we were down. I’ve got a headache right now, but it was a lot of fun. Both teams were battling and we came through in the end. As long as you have innings and outs left, you’ve

got a chance to make something happen.” Game 4 is tonight, with CC Sabathia pitching on three days’ rest against Angels newcomer Scott Kazmir. Game 5 in the best-of-seven series is Thursday. Vladimir Guerrero hit a tying two-run homer as the Angels overcame a 3-0 deficit and four solo homers by the Yankees’ stars, including Jorge Posada’s tying shot in the eighth.

Overboard ® Chip Dunham

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2009 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Snoop Dogg, 38; Arthel Neville, 47; Viggo Mortensen, 51; Tom Petty, 59 Happy Birthday: Your sophisticated intelligence will lead you down the right path and, although others may think you are giving in, you will, in fact, be getting your way. A change of location or surroundings will do you good. Getting involved with someone secretively will help you accomplish what you set out to do. Once you have everything in place, you can make your plans known. Your numbers are 3, 15, 19, 25, 32, 37, 46 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Observe what's really going on around you. You may be the one who has the change of heart regarding a friendship or partnership. Someone is looking out for your interests, not trying to diminish the pursuit of your goals.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can't stop when you are so close to reaching your goal. If you work for a cause you believe in, you will expand your professional connections. You'll make a better impression if you can stay within a budget. ★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don't count on someone else to do what you are supposed to do yourself. An unexpected change will lead to uncertainty about your position in a group you belong to. Love and romance are on the rise and can lead to an entertaining evening. ★★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don't look too far ahead when it's what you do now that counts. Someone may try to alter your opinion or direction to suit his or her own needs. Be careful not to give in to something you don't really want to do. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take on a challenge that will enable you to show off what you have to offer. A change at home may not be what you expect but it will allow you to see what needs to be done. Don't overreact. ★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take an out-of-the-ordinary approach and you will draw attention and suggestions that will help your

cause. A work relationship with someone innovative will develop if you are open to the concepts being presented. ★★★★ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may meet with opposition at home but, when it comes to your friends and the organizations you belong to, you will be looked up to. Perhaps you can learn from outsiders how to better deal with personal matters. ★★★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Step up and make a decision. Waffling will make you look bad. You have to make choices if you want to achieve your goals. Action is required in order to win the confidence of others. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll be the driving force and the one who brings everyone and everything together. Your dedication and determination will be magnified. Competitive challenges will motivate you to be the best at whatever you do. ★★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can make a workable arrangement if you communicate with people who have something to bring to the table. Recognize that you cannot do everything on your own. That doesn't mean that you have to give up being the leader.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Follow your own path. You have some good ideas that can be turned into a profitable venture. An unexpected turn of events may stop you in your tracks but, if you keep moving, you will realize what has occurred is beneficial. ★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take a much-needed break. Taking time out will allow you to put things in perspective and to realize what will work best for you. Socializing with people who inspire you will lead to innovative ideas. ★★★★★ Birthday Baby: You are outgoing and have vision and perception. You have confidence and are a leader.

State seeks more on effect of oil shale development Judith Kohler

The Associated Press


The commercial development of oil shale can help meet growing energy demands and diversify the country’s fuel sources, industry and government representatives said Monday. Exxon Mobil’s projections suggest that all forms of energy, including oil shale, will be required to meet the demands, company executive Richard Lowe said during an oil shale symposium at the Colorado School of Mines. Mining the oil shale underlying eastern Utah is an important part of the state’s focus on the economy and energy, said Alan Walker, with the governor’s economic development office and the Utah Science Technology and Research Initiative. He repeated former Gov. Jon Huntsman’s declaration made last year at the same symposium that Utah is open to commercial oil shale development. “I want to let you know that you’re very welcome in Utah,” Walker told the crowd, which included industry and government representatives.

A Colorado official took a more cautious approach, saying the state supports oil shale development. “We think everybody agrees that all options need to be on the table” in energy development, said Bob Randall, of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources. But Randall said the state wants more information about the technology, still in the experimental stages, as well as the costs and potential impacts on water supply and quality, environment, public health and communities. “These are serious questions and we’re anxious to see how you answer them,” Randall said. Last year, federal officials approved a plan to make nearly 2 million acres of public land available for oil shale development and finalized rules for commercial production. The equivalent of more than 1 trillion barrels of oil is thought to be in shale under northwest Colorado, southwest Wyoming and eastern Utah. The U.S. Geological Survey has said there are about 1.5 trillion barrels of the resource in Colorado alone.


Charges in balloon incident may not be filed until next week P. Solomon Banda The Associated Press


Investigators pored through e-mails, phone records and financial documents from the home of Richard Heene on Monday as they weighed felony charges and sought to determine who else might have helped the alleged balloon-boy hoax get off the ground. The sheriff’s office said its findings will be forwarded to prosecutors next week to decide whether Richard and Mayumi Heene should be charged with falsely reporting that their 6-year-old son had drifted away in a large home-built helium balloon to drum up publicity for a reality TV show. But the investigation could reach beyond the Heenes, possibly into the world of realityshow promotions. Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden said documents show that a media outlet had agreed to pay the Heenes. Alderden did not name the organization but said it was in an industry that blurs “the line between entertainment and news.” It was not clear whether the deal was signed before or after

going to end in 2012,” she said. “Because of that, he wanted to make money quickly, become rich enough to build a bunker or something underground, where he can be safe from the sun exploding.” Lee said her client worked with Heene from March until May. Thomas told investigators what he observed about the couple and “intimate details about their home life,” Lee said. “He noticed things that were definitely not right. ... Some of the things are kind of shocking that Mr. Heene did, but we’re not going to discuss specifics,” Lee said. Lee said investigators told her Thomas does not face charges, but she is seeking immunity for him before he turns over documents and e-mails with Heene, “just to be safe.” Thomas has said he had no idea that a possible hoax would involve the Heene children. With television cameras and reporters set up outside the Heene home, Richard Heene’s lawyer, David Lane, stressed that the Heenes are willing to turn themselves in to avoid the spectacle of a public arrest.

the alleged hoax, or whether the media outlet was a possible conspirator. If so, the organization could face charges, as well. The Heenes are amateur storm chasers who apparently wanted to star in a reality show that focused on a range of absurd experiments, such as attracting UFOs with a weather balloon and conducting an electromagnetic analysis of a terminally ill patient’s spirit before death. Robert Thomas, a collaborator who worked with Richard Heene on the idea, provided an e-mail to the Web site Gawker. com outlining his plan for the show. The sheriff’s department questioned Thomas on Sunday after he revealed that Heene was planning a media stunt to promote the show, according to the researcher’s lawyer, Linda Lee. Thomas’ notes include Heene discussing a hoax — which Thomas opposed — that involved a hot air balloon, Lee said. “Pretty much he wanted to recreate this Roswell effect making it seem like there’s a UFO,” Lee said. “Heene believes the world is

work to count inventory, we get along fine,” Janet said. “That’s our only hang-up, is inventory … and it affects professional and personal (lives). So I don’t do it anymore.” Longtime employee Darren Ebaugh, J.D.W.’s foreman, said Dewey and Janet are easygoing bosses. “They’re really great people … and it’s really enjoyable to be able to work for them,” Ebaugh said. He began working for J.D.W. in 1995 as a junior in high school. Ebaugh said Dewey and Janet got him a scholarship to attend the Denver Institute of Technology, where he completed a diploma program in HVAC service. He returned to J.D.W. and has worked for the company since. “We learn stuff every day, in

every situation,” Ebaugh said. “Dewey has been a great source to rely on for different installations and that kind of thing. … Hopefully we can work for them for several more years.” On Friday, the J.D.W. staff will celebrate the company’s longevity with a public lunch and party from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the store. All are welcome to eat, until the food runs out. Janet said radio advertisements for the party are the first ads that J.D.W. — which stands for James Dewey Williams — has ever run. Dewey said if he had “to do it all over again,” he’d work in the same trade. He had a simple piece of advice for anyone 40 years younger, looking to start an HVAC business. “You better be prepared to put the hours in,” he said.

“I used to think he climbed inside of a coal boiler to clean it, because he came back so black,” the Williams’ daughter, Brenda Northrop, said Monday in the J.D.W. office. Northrop “grew up with the company,” she said, and as its controller, she oversees daily logistics today. Throughout the years, Dewey said, J.D.W. has installed HVAC and refrigeration systems for facilities across Northwest Colorado, including the Routt County Jail, Vectra Bank, gondola buildings at Steamboat Ski Area, the Moffat County public safety building and many more. Some facilities, such as Meeker’s wastewater treatment plant, Dewey said he has worked on twice — 25 years apart, after the original machinery needed an upgrade. The slowest time was a period in the ’80s, he said, when “things kind of folded up in Steamboat.” That drove him to find work in Utah and Wyoming until business picked up again locally. “Things were tight, (but) we never had a point where we had to shut the doors,” Dewey said. “I don’t think I’ve ever run out of work.” J.D.W. moved into the 8,800-square-foot shop in 1990, marking a significant upgrade from the company’s beginnings in a garage on Seventh Street. When asked whether it’s harder to keep a business for 40 years or a marriage for 50, Dewey just grinned. Then Janet chimed in. “As long as I don’t have to
