Inn faces new quandary City’s lease to hotel operator could force out Iron Horse tenants Brandon Gee



The story “Discussing funding” on page 16 of Wednesday’s Steamboat Today incorrectly reported that the Colorado Department of Education was creating a new standardized curriculum, which is done by each school district based on the state model standards. The department is creating new state model standards, which define what students should learn each year from kindergarten through 12th grade.

Iron Horse Inn renter Larry Haines talks Wednesday about his living arrangements at the city-owned property. Haines says he is happy the city provides the opportunity for transitional housing. He spoke at Tuesday’s City Council meeting about the city’s lease of Iron Horse to Boulder-based New West Inns.


As the city nears final approval of a lease agreement for the Iron Horse Inn, some say the former hotel is fulfilling its intended purpose of providing long-term affordable rentals and should not be operated as a nightly rental facility that would compete with local lodges.

On Tuesday, the Steamboat Springs City Council preliminarily approved a three-year lease with Boulder-based New West Inns, owners of the Comfort Inn in Steamboat, to manage the Iron Horse Inn. The move is expected to reduce the Iron Horse’s annual losses to about $160,000 from what originally was projected to be as much as a $500,000 loss this year. The lease is subject to

final approval at the Nov. 3 council meeting. A previous City Council bought the inn in 2007 to provide affordable housing at a time when property values and housing costs were soaring. The inn nearly broke even through its first winter. A recession, a bedbug problem and several operational scenarios later, the inn was declared to be nearly vacant in August, when

the council first unanimously directed that the city negotiate a lease with New West Inns. In an effort to minimize losses until New West Inns’ scheduled takeover of the Iron Horse in December, the city offered $600 monthly rentals. Twenty-eight of its 52 rooms now are occupied, and there is a waiting list for the “efficiency See Iron Horse, page 13

The community health fair is from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday at Yampa Valley Medical Center. “We want to give back to the community, and we want people to take charge of their heath, and this is just a wonderful opportunity to bring together healthcare providers and people in the community,” said

Christine McKelvie, director of public relations for YVMC. YVMC has sponsored a community health fair for almost 30 years, said Lisa Bankard, wellness and community education director at YVMC. Health fair screenings are not meant to take the place of a yearly check-up, but are a way to supplement it, Bankard said. Health fair organizers moved the event to the Yampa Valley Medical Center campus from Steamboat Springs Middle School in 2008, changing the date of what was previously known as the 9Health Fair from the spring to the fall. Lab results once processed in Denver are

now done locally, allowing residents easier access and the ability to share those results with their doctors and trend them over time, McKelvie said. Four available blood tests are the only thing at the health fair that require payment, and they are offered at greatly reduced prices, Bankard said. “If you were to get a combination of a couple of those tests without health insurance, you would probably see a bill up in the $300 to $450 range,” See Health fair, page 14

Unemployment rate steady Routt County at 6 percent in September, mirroring August

Six percent of Routt County’s 14,614-member work force was unemployed in September, according to figures released Wednesday. That amounts to 876 people. The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment said Colorado’s unemployment rate was 6.7 percent in September. That’s a slight dip from August’s 7.1 percent state rate but is still more than the state’s 4.8 percent rate in September 2008. Those numbers have not been adjusted for typical seasonal changes. In Routt County, September’s 6 percent rate was steady with August’s 5.9 percent rate. But local unemployment still is well more than the county’s 3.4 percent rate in September 2008. At the Steamboat Springs office of the Colorado Work­ force Center, labor and employment specialist Jackie Mitchell said winter job listings are picking up, especially from resort management companies. “What we’re seeing is a lot of people applying for hospitality jobs,” she said Wednesday. “That is definitely the trend.” Mitchell said many listings at the Workforce Center are for housekeeping, cooking and health care positions. “We’re starting to see more jobs, which is great,” Mitchell said. “We’re helping a ton of

Lately, Eileen Jones has been talking to her dog in a New Jersey accent. In the two months or so since she was cast as Debra, a constant con and aunt to the main character in the darkly comic play “Kimberly Akimbo,” Jones estimates her time spent rehearsing, gathering props and memorizing lines for the community theater production at about 400 hours. “It does take over your life,” Jones said about getting into her character. “You start absorbing your character into yourself.” Debra is one of the four dysfunctional characters in the life of Kimberly Levaco, a 16-year-old girl with the body of a 70-year-old.

Council wants demolished site put to use before redevelopment Brandon Gee

Redevelopment plans for the site of the demolished Ski Time Square site were tabled by the Steamboat Springs City Council on Tuesday. Council members said they want to see a plan for how the demolished site will be put to use in intervening years to ignite the commercial area at the base of Steamboat Ski Area.

It is 105 feet tall at its tallest points. The Atira Group is rede­ veloping Ski Time Square and Thunderhead Lodge on behalf of Washington, D.C.based owner Cafritz Interests, which purchased the properties in 2007. On one of its Web pages, Cafritz refers to the com­ bined redevelopment projects as “Aspen Ridge at Steamboat.” Anticipating immediate rede­ velopment, the existing Ski Time Square buildings were demolished in 2008, with the exception of the Tugboat Grill & Pub. Now, Atira is request­

ing a 10-year vesting period for the development. Especially given that request, Councilman Walter Magill said something needs to be done with the site in the interim. “That site needs to be great­ ly improved,” he said Tuesday night during the council’s meet­ ing. The demolition has created struggles for the remaining busi­ nesses along Ski Time Square Drive. Earlier in Tuesday’s meeting, council approved allocating See Ski Time Square, page 14

A development plan for the former site of Ski Time Square was tabled until January on Tuesday, largely because the Steamboat Springs City Council wants to see a plan for ignit­ ing the demolished commercial area between now and redevel­ opment. The development plan, which was unanimously ap­­ proved by the city Planning Commission last month, also has been complicated by con­ flicts with the Ski Time Square Condominium Association, which holds easement and lease rights on portions of the 4.6-acre site. Among the association’s complaints is that the develop­ ment plan calls for construc­ tion above and around an aging parking structure leased to the condo owners for the next 64 years. The Ski Time Square redevel­ opment project proposes about 681,700 square feet of primar­ ily residential construction in five buildings on 4.6 acres. The project includes about 27,500 square feet of commercial space and public amenities such as improvements to Burgess Creek, restrooms and a fire pit.

There still aren’t answers about how the Northwest Colorado Board of Cooperative Educational Services got into its current financial situation or how it’s going to extricate itself from that, Hayden School Board members were told Wednesday night. Board President Brian Hoza, who also is the president of the BOCES board, updated board members about a possible resolution to BOCES overspending nearly $317,000 last year and increasing assessments of its six member districts for this year’s

services by more than $481,000 since they were first reported in May. Nor is there resolution about when the member districts will receive the more than $777,000 in federal funding for title programs that is supposed to flow through BOCES to them. BOCES has been using that funding to pay for its operating expenses. Hayden’s share of it is nearly $62,000. Hoza said there have been problems with the three most recent BOCES budgets, going back to 2007-08. He said the BOCES board began asking questions 18 months ago when BOCES first delayed providing that federal funding for title pro-

grams. Not until three or four months ago did Hayden receive its share of the 2007-08 title funding, Hoza said. He added that BOCES had $220,000 in reserves just two years ago. The BOCES board met earlier this month. Hoza said a resolution hasn’t been reached, though district superintendents and BOCES Executive Director Jane Toothaker have met three times since September, when the overspending and increased assessments were revealed. BOCES initially asked the districts to pay for what it overspent last year and for this year’s See BOCES, page 15

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

The new untouchables Thomas L. Friedman The New York Times

Last summer, I attended a talk by Michelle Rhee, the dynamic chancellor of public schools in Washington. Just before the session began, a man came up, introduced himself as Todd Martin and whispered to me that what Rhee was about to speak about — our struggling public schools – was actually a critical, but unspoken, reason for the Great Recession. There’s something to Friedman that. Although the subprime mortgage mess involved a huge ethical breakdown on Wall Street, it coincided with an education breakdown on Main Street — precisely when technology and open borders were enabling so many more people to compete with Americans for middle-class jobs.

In our subprime era, we thought we could have the American dream — a house and yard — with nothing down. This version of the American dream was delivered not by improving education, productivity and savings, but by Wall Street alchemy and borrowed money from Asia. A year ago, it all exploded. Now that we are picking up the pieces, we need to understand that it is not only our financial system that needs a reboot and an upgrade, but also our public school system. Otherwise, the jobless recovery won’t be just a passing phase, but our future. “Our education failure is the largest contributing factor to the decline of the American worker’s global competitiveness, particularly at the middle and bottom ranges,” argued Martin, a former global executive with PepsiCo and Kraft Europe and now an international investor. “This loss of competitiveness

has weakened the American worker’s production of wealth, precisely when technology brought global competition much closer to home. So throughout a decade, American workers have maintained their standard of living by borrowing and overconsuming vis-avis their real income. When the Great Recession wiped out all the credit and asset bubbles that made that overconsumption possible, it left too many American workers not only deeper in debt than ever, but out of a job and lacking the skills to compete globally.” This problem will be reversed only when the decline in worker competitiveness reverses — when we create enough new jobs and educated workers that are worth, say, $40 an hour compared with the global alternatives. If we don’t, there’s no telling how “jobless” this recovery will be. A Washington lawyer friend recently See Friedman, page 9

During the Cold War, the Voice of America and Radio Free Europe were among the broadcast entities that effectively penetrated the Iron Curtain to deliver truth to the “captive nations” that were being fed a steady dose of propaganda by their communist rulers. Those dictators did everything they could to “jam” the signals so that their people would only Thomas hear what their unelected overseers wanted them to hear. Contemporary versions of jamming and other forms of censorship occur today in Venezuela, Cuba and many other places where dictators believe public ignorance is essential to their unchallenged rule.

Although the Obama administration is the product of an election, its approach to Fox News Channel, conservative talk radio and possibly the Internet appears similar to dictators who desire to control the flow of information in order to enhance their power. The administration’s primary beef appears to be that Fox is doing the job the broadcast networks and big newspapers should be doing were they not still deeply in the tank for this president and his policies. Like those Cold War truth-tellers, Fox simply is delivering information to a rapidly growing audience (partly because of criticism from the White House) that wants to see and hear what the other media are not telling them. Fox — and talk radio — are reporting on the backgrounds and statements of Obama administration officials. Fox didn’t create the statements and actions of Van Jones, the now former “energy

czar,” who signed a petition questioning whether Bush administration officials allowed 9/11 to happen as a possible pretext for going to war. Fox didn’t force Jones to advocate for cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, or associate himself with Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), a left-wing radical group with Marxist roots. No Fox News employee wrote the speeches and comments of White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, who told graduating high school seniors that one of her “favorite philosophers” is the mass murderer Mao Zedong. Neither did they compose her boast during the campaign that the Obama people “controlled” the news media.

community first I have an Agenda.

told me about layoffs at his firm. I asked him who was getting axed. He said it was interesting: lawyers who were used to just showing up and having work handed to them were the first to go because with the bursting of the credit bubble, that flow of work just isn’t there. But those who have the ability to imagine new services, new opportunities and new ways to recruit work were being retained. They are the new untouchables. That is the key to understanding our full education challenge today. Those who are waiting for this recession to end so someone can again hand them work could have a long wait. Those with the imagination to make themselves untouchables — to invent smarter ways to do old jobs, energy-saving ways to provide new services, new ways to attract old customers or new ways to combine existing technologies — will thrive. Therefore, we not only need a

higher percentage of our kids graduating from high school and college — more education — but we need more of them with the right education. As the Harvard University labor expert Lawrence Katz explains it: “If you think about the labor market today, the top half of the college market, those with the high-end analytical and problem-solving skills who can compete on the world market or game the financial system or deal with new government regulations, have done great. But the bottom half of the top, those engineers and programmers working on more routine tasks and not actively engaged in developing new ideas or recombining existing technologies or thinking about what new customers want, have done poorly. They’ve been much more exposed to global competitors that make them easily substitutable.” Those at the high end of the bottom half — high school grads in construction or manufacturing — have been clob-

bered by global competition and immigration, Katz added. “But those who have some interpersonal skills — the salesperson who can deal with customers face to face or the home contractor who can help you redesign your kitchen without going to an architect — have done well.” Just being an average accountant, lawyer, contractor or assembly-line worker is not the ticket it used to be. As Daniel Pink, the author of “A Whole New Mind,” puts it: In a world in which more and more average work can be done by a computer, robot or talented foreigner faster, cheaper “and just as well,” vanilla doesn’t cut it anymore. It’s all about what chocolate sauce, whipped cream and cherry you can put on top. So our schools have a doubly hard task now — not just improving reading, writing and arithmetic but entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity. Bottom line: We’re not going back to the good old days without fixing our schools as well as our banks.

Obama should defend his policies to Fox Thomas continued from 8 to their offices with a hidden camera and recorded some ACORN workers who were happy to assist them in breaking the law. As one who appears on Fox as a contributor, I have seen the network grow from its beginning more than a decade ago to its current position of holding accountable those in power. That was once the calling of all journalists until the Kennedy years when reporters started cheerleading and socializing with the people they were empowered to question and cover. This shift in responsibility has greatly enhanced the status and income of too many journalists and commentators.

It also has shortchanged the profession and the public it is supposed to serve. It is no mystery why the White House has made Fox News a target. If its reporting and commentating were not effective in exposing things the administration does not want the public to know, Fox would be ignored. But it is increasingly effective because the public is sensing that the administration has a lot to hide about its personnel, ideology and objectives. Rather than boycott Fox — if the administration were smart — it would flood the network with its spokespeople. The administration apparently believes it needs an enemy to avert scrutiny from its socialist agenda, the undermining of free

speech and the corruption of the U.S. Constitution. Because Republicans have no credible national leader, the administration has settled on Fox News. Political leaders, going back to our founding, have criticized the press. It never works, because after the politicians leave office, the press remains. If the administration is seeking approval for its policies, it should go on the only channel that will confront, examine and question those policies. If the policies are valid, they will stand; if not, they won’t and they shouldn’t. But perhaps, like those dictators, the administration would rather jam Fox’s “signal” because they don’t want the public to know the truth about what they are doing.

Yampa Valley Medical Center released guidelines Wednesday afternoon restricting who may visit patients at the hospital. The guidelines, modeled closely on the Colorado Depar­ tment of Public Health and Environment’s recommenda­ tions for hospitals, are meant to protect patients and community members from the H1N1 influ­ enza and other viruses, YVMC Public Relations Director Christine McKelvie said. Children younger than 13 are not allowed to visit patients, with an exception for the Family Birth Place, “where healthy chil­ dren of any age will be allowed in the appropriate patient care room only,” according to the release. Any hospital visitor who is not seeking medical care must be in good health, McKelvie said Wednesday afternoon. “Health” in this case is defined as not having a fever, body aches, sore throat, diarrhea, vomiting, coughing or sneezing, she said. No more than four visitors are allowed with a patient at a time, and all visitors will be asked to check in at the nurses’ station. Some visitors may be asked to wear a mask, visit at another

time or follow special guidelines, according to the release. The hospital will provide a mask for anyone who’s asked to wear one, McKelvie said. The guidelines also require visitors to wash their hands

or use hand sanitizer before entering or exiting a patient room. They encourage people with weak immune systems and women who are preg­ See Hospital, page 19

Craig firefighters combat a blaze Wednesday at the Craig Motel, 894 Yampa Ave. Officials say a faulty wall-mounted heater caused the fire, which damaged 16 rooms and caused a portion of the roof to collapse.

Smoke and flames poured out of the windows of Room 11 on Wednesday morning at the Craig Motel, just as Craig Fire/Rescue arrived on the scene. Fire Chief Bill Johnston described his first look at the scene with two words: “Flame on.” Firefighters spent almost four hours from the time they got there at 11:36 a.m. containing the fire, which eventually was extinguished about 3 p.m. There were no reported injuries during the incident, which department officials determined was caused by a faulty wallmounted heater. The firefighters’ initial focus was on Room 11, which seemed to be the center of the fire.

Using chainsaws, the crew cut into the roof, releasing plumes of smoke. Firefighters hoped to stop the fire from spreading into the insulation, but by 1 p.m. the roof was smoking. From there, Johnston said the fire spread latterly from room to room because there were no firestops in the ceiling. Fire stops are required by city code to prevent such damage, but Johnston said the motel was probably built before the code was in place, so they weren’t required. There appeared to be extensive damage to Room 11, as well as the roof of the structure. The room was being rented, Johnston said; however, no one was inside. The fire caused extensive damage to 16 rooms, from Room 5 on the northernmost side to Room

Craig Fire/Rescue, West Routt Fire Department, Craig Police Department, Moffat County Sheriff’s Office, state and city road and bridge departments and Colorado State Patrol responded to the call. “We had to call in West Routt Fire Department because of the intensity of the fire,” Johnston said, “and because of the size of the fire and jobs that need to get done.” Johnston said extra personnel were needed for safety purposes, as well. Sections of Yampa Avenue from Eighth Street to Ninth Street were closed as crews battled the blaze.

units” that include kitchenettes and are similar to small studio apartments. In the opinion of Larry Haines, all this amounts to a completely different situation than existed in August when the inn was mostly empty. “I just wanted City Council to be aware that that was not the case,” said Haines, an Iron Horse resident who spoke at Tuesday’s meeting and said the council should consider the fact that the Iron Horse is now fulfilling its originally intended purpose. “In this case, the city has actually been successful in providing” affordable housing, he said. Although it certainly has the feel of a former hotel room, Haines’ home at the Iron Horse Inn also is similar to many modest rental units in Steamboat Springs. Three pairs of skis are in the corner, and a mountain bike leans against the wall near the table where his desktop computer sits. Personal furnishings are interspersed with those that came with the room. Haines moved in August from Milner, where he was paying $800 a month for a studio apartment and commuting to Steamboat for work and classes at Colorado Mountain College. “It was just tough to make ends meet,” said Haines, who said his fellow tenants appreciate the convenience, affordability and flexibility the Iron

Board unsure how situation took place Hike applies BOCES continued from 6 increased assessments. Hoza said Toothaker was pursuing using federal stimulus funding to make up part of last year’s balance. He said the districts have asked Toothaker to cut her budget this year in lieu of the district’s paying the increased assessments. “BOCES needs to realize that districts like ours don’t have the money to fund that,” Hoza said. If BOCES uses stimulus funding to cover its overspending, Hoza said the districts wouldn’t be getting that infusion of funding to provide services for students. “That kind of hits us in the gut with where those funds would go,” he said. Hoza said a team from the Colorado Department of Education conducted an audit of BOCES financials Friday. He said the BOCES board was still waiting for a response after that meeting about the education agency’s findings and sug-

gestions for possible action or recommendations. Hoza said he was eager to hear the Education Department’s perspective. Board member Kurt Frentress asked why, if BOCES submitted annual audits to the state, its financial struggles weren’t discovered before. Hoza said that’s what they were trying to figure out. He said in previous years, BOCES said its districts weren’t providing accurate information to it to balance its books. He said BOCES also said the districts weren’t paying it for services on time, which wasn’t accurate. Board member Vance Fulton asked if the BOCES board had discussed whether any criminal activity had taken place. Hoza said he couldn’t comment because the board was still unclear about how the situation arose. “I don’t at this point have that impression, but there’s a lot of ambiguity about why we’re in this position,” he said.

Other business At the beginning of the meeting, Super­­intendent Greg Rockhold presented board member Patty Bruchez a plant and thanked her for her eight years of service on the School Board — especially her financial wisdom. Bruchez, who was up for re-election this year, decided not to run. After the presentation of the plant, each board member, the district’s three principals and district staff members who attended the meeting gave a tearyeyed Bruchez hugs. “I’ve been associated with the school district in some way or another for 31 years,” she said after the meeting. Bruchez started with the district as a bookkeeper in 1978. She was a board member from 1985 to 1987, when she was the business manager for the Steam­­ boat Springs School District. She returned to Hayden in 1987, where she was business manager until her retirement in 1998. She ran for the School Board in 2001 and was re-elected in 2005. “It’s kind of tough to walk away,” she said. “I’ve had two kids in the system. The associations I’ve had with the people are beyond words.” Board President Brian Hoza said Bruchez would be missed. “Patty has made an amazing, amazing contribution to the district,” he said.

Oak Creek continued from 6 $20.50 to account for potential raised costs. “It’s keeping us in the black,” Town Clerk Karen Halterman said. “That’s what we figured that we have to increase so our revenues cover our expenditures.” The 10 percent cost increase would apply to all levels of service, including businesses. The Town Board also will consider final approval of the town’s comprehensive plan and land use code, with a recommendation from the planning commission. Greenwood said the comprehensive plan would set “the direction that the town’s going in.” “We have an election next April, and this is one of the things we don’t want to leave undone,” he said.

as Rhode Island, posted new record-high joblessness. In the Fed’s latest survey of businesses nationwide, all but two of 12 regions showed at least some signs of improvement. Only the Atlanta and St. Louis regions reported weaker economic activity. The survey found many parts of the country either stabilized or improved modestly during the past six weeks. The Boston, Cleveland and Richmond, Va., regions reported growing home sales, though the gains came from depressed levels.


The Obama administration plans to order companies that received huge government bailouts last year to sharply cut the compensation of their highest paid executives, according to a person familiar with the decision. The seven companies that received the most assistance will have to cut the annual salaries of their 25 highest-paid executive by an average of about 90 percent from last year, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because it has not been announced. This person said Wednesday that the Treasury Department will announce the deep pay cuts within the next few days. Kenneth Feinberg, the special master at the Treasury appointed by Obama to handle compensation issues at the seven firms getting exceptional assistance from the government’s $700 billion financial bailout package, is making the pay decisions. The seven companies are: Bank of America Corp., American International Group, Citigroup, General Motors,

GMAC, Chrysler and Chrysler Financial. Total compensation for the top executives at the seven firms will decline, on average, by about 50 percent, according to the person familiar with the administration’s decision.

The Midwest is starting to see a comeback in manufacturing and technology. Home sales are rising in parts of the Northeast. But states such as Florida, Nevada and California, still suffering from the housing bust, remain depressed. The economy’s tentative recovery is occurring in pockets across the country, with some states and cities starting to rebound while neighboring areas still struggle, two government reports showed Wednesday. They showed improving job markets in some Midwestern states, such as Indiana and Ohio. But other states, such

Phillies going back to World Series Rob Maaddi

The Associated Press


Ryan Howard and the defending champs are back in the World Series — proving last year was no fluke and looking even more dangerous this time around. Jayson Werth homered twice, Shane Victorino and Pedro Feliz also connected and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, 10-4, in Game 5 on Wednesday night to win their second straight National League pennant. Brad Lidge closed it out, Howard was selected NL championship series MVP and the Phillies became the first team to reach consecutive World Series since the New York Yankees in 2000-01. “I can get used to it,” manager Charlie Manuel told a cheering crowd. “We got one more step, and we’re going to get it!” Now, Jimmy Rollins and crew wait for their next opponent. They’ll go for their third World See NLCS, page 23

Rally future uncertain National series cuts ties with 9-year-old Colorado annual race event Joel Reichenberger PILOT & TODAY STAFF


Rally Colorado could be in trouble. The annual rally car race that has played out on the dirt roads between Steamboat Springs and Hayden for the

past nine years — attracting some of the world’s most talented rally drivers for some of that period — will no longer be a stop on Rally America’s national circuit. That means the race could become a national stop for a different circuit, revert to a regional stop in the Rally

America brand or cease to exist altogether. “We would hate to see this go away, so we are working hard to see if we can figure out a way to logically proceed forward in a way that makes sense for the community and our sponsors,” said Jim Gill, the event’s organizer, who was also key in

bringing it to the Yampa Valley nearly a decade ago. The Steamboat-based race was one of three cut from Rally America’s top tier. The Ojibwe Forests Rally in Minnesota and the Lake Superior Rally, which wrapped See Rally, page 22

up Sunday in Houghton, Mich., also were cut. In a statement, Rally America said it bumped the three races to make room for a trio of European rally-crossstyle events to be contested in Millville, N.J. “We’re confident American rally spectators would like to add this wheel-to-wheel competition to their plate of national championship rallying,” Rally America Managing Director J.B. Niday said in that news release. “Our championship is among the most respected in the world. This will make it more so. It’s a logical move for the growth of rally here in the United States.” Gill said he could take

some solace in the fact that Steamboat’s expulsion had everything to do with its traditional date, mid-September, and little to do with its success. In fact, he said Rally America offered Steamboat a chance to host a national-level event again starting in 2011. The only problem: the available dates are in March and April, when the backcountry roads used for the race will likely either be buried under feet of snow or sunk in mud. For now, he said, the Rally Colorado committee will spend the next several weeks trying to iron out what of the available options is best. Those include sticking with Rally America, only as a regional event. That means big names such as Travis Pastrana and Ken

Block would likely be a thing of the past. Another option is turning Rally Colorado into a stop for the United States Rally Championship’s national tour. “We are in the process of evaluating all of the details about something like that,” Gill said. “This is all a little sad, a little disappointing because the event was to the point of critical mass. The community embraced it, we got a lot of spectators, it was growing every year and the sponsors saw all that. “What we do next has to be a good investment for the community and the sponsors. If it is, then the race will go on. If we determine there’s not enough value for the community, we will have to make a different decision.”

Showdowns continued from 21 er this season, 2-1. Last season, with a postseason berth already clinched, the Sailors traveled to Craig and lost, 4-3, in double overtime. “We have to make sure we go into it with the right mentality,” Bohlmann said. “We have all the opportunity in the world to do what we can to win a league title. At least the part that’s in our hands.” It’s hard not to like how Steamboat is playing. The final 15 minutes of Tuesday’s 2-0 win against Eagle Valley might have been Steamboat’s best stretch of the year. Up just 1-0, the Sailors kept the pressure on, finally getting a gorgeous goal from Andrew White in the 69th minute to take a 2-0 lead. Based on that type of play, the Sailors feel like they are peaking at the right time. “When we were identifying seasonal goals, we were going off how we could grow from last year,” Bohlmann said. “We felt we peaked at midseason and leveled off. This year it’s been a nice progression to mature as a team. To wrap up the game the way we did, we’re playing

with confidence and are really sharp.”

Volleyball faces big tests The Steamboat Springs High School volleyball team has a chance to wrap up second place in the Western Slope League today and Friday. Steamboat plays at 6:30 p.m. today at Palisade and at 5:30 p.m. Friday at Delta. Steamboat beat both teams at home earlier this season in three games. The quick three-game win against Palisade gives Steamboat the advantage going into today’s game. The Sailors, at 14-3 overall and 10-2 in league play, are one game ahead of the Bulldogs. If Steamboat wins, or manages to not lose in three games, the Sailors will still be ahead in the league standings. But coach Wendy Hall said the team doesn’t want a loss. “We’re in a good position beating them in three,” Hall said. “We don’t want it to come to that point. We’d much rather keep it neat and tidy. But we’ll have our hands full.” In the first meeting, Steamboat used a potent offensive attack to tie up Palisade’s big hitters.

The Soroco High School girls volleyball team lost in four games Tuesday to North Park. The Wildcats beat the Rams 25-14, 18-25, 25-7 and 25-17. Soroco next plays at 6 p.m. Friday at Vail Christian.

Hall said Steamboat will have to do that again and be aggressive at the net. Although Steamboat is coming off a three-game loss to Eagle Valley on Saturday, Hall said a meeting Monday put to rest that that loss would resonate with her team. With the district tournament a mere week away, Hall said it remains imperative Steamboat gets on a roll. “Like I said Saturday, I’m certain these kids will bounce back, and I still feel that way,” she said. “There has been no head-dropping this week. They’ve come into the gym and practiced as hard as ever.” — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail

Phillies to play winner of Yankees vs. Angels ANAHEIM, Calif.

When Derek Jeter recalls the last time the New York Yankees got this close to the World Series, he gets chills down his spine that have nothing to do with the cold he’s fighting. “If you have the opportunity to get something over with, you’d like to do it,” the New York captain said. “It’s not always going to happen.” Although the Yankees have a strong record in potential closeout playoff games over their peerless history, the 2004 American League Championship Series is a prodigious hole in their reputation that only a record 40th AL pennant could begin to cover. Up, 3-0, New York lost four straight to the Boston Red Sox in an unprecedented collapse, and the Yankees hadn’t been that close to the World Series since — until now.

Series title beginning next Wednesday night at New York or Los Angeles. The Yankees lead the Angels 3-1 in the ALCS, which resumes Thursday night at Angel Stadium. Meanwhile, slugger Manny Ramirez, manager Joe Torre and the rest of the Dodgers go home after leading the NL with 95 wins in the regular season and sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals in the division series. “They’re confident, they’re talented, and they’re going where we all want to go right now — the World Series,” Torre said, praising the power-hitting Phillies. With a big night at the plate, Philadelphia overcame another shaky outing by 2008 NLCS and World Series MVP Cole Hamels. Los Angeles closed to 9-4 in the eighth, but Ryan Madson escaped a bases-loaded jam by striking out Russell Martin and retiring Casey Blake on a grounder. After beating Tampa Bay in last year’s World Series, the Phillies are trying to become the first repeat champions from the NL since the Cincinnati Reds in 1975-76. The Yankees were the last team to win consecutive titles when they captured three in a row from 1998-2000. “We got one more step,” Howard said. “Then we got action!”

The Minnesota Wild eagerly returned home, and the white “C” newly stitched on Mikko Koivu’s dark green jersey seemed bigger and brighter by the end. Chosen as captain the day before, Koivu lifted his team’s sagged spirit with a standout performance Wednesday night. Koivu had an assist and the tying goal late in regulation and scored on Minnesota’s first shot in the shootout, sending the Wild to a 3-2 victory against the Colorado Avalanche. “He leads by example. He battles and competes,” coach Todd Richards said. “He’s not perfect by any means, but his hard work and his effort makes up for a lot of the mistakes that happen in a game, whether it’s by him or his teammates.” — The Associated Press

Overboard ® Chip Dunham

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2009 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Jonathan Lipnicki, 19; Zac Hanson, 24; Shaggy, 41; Jeff Goldblum, 57 Happy Birthday: Focus on moving forward. It's important not to become too emotional if you want to get others to do things your way. Choose your battles wisely and use past experience and connections to help you get ahead now. A new look at an old idea will raise some interest. Your numbers are 2, 5, 12, 15, 21, 33, 45 ARIES (March 21-April 19): You need to get a different perspective on life. A trip can open your eyes to new beginnings and possibilities. A unique partnership can develop if you both have the same motives.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone from your past will be able to help you out now. Don't hesitate to make the first move to reestablish the connection. Keep everything out in the open and you will make a good impression. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You'll be torn between what you should do and what you want to do. Friendship is on the rise. Finish what you start and make sure you get along with the people who can alter your future. ★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Like it or not, change is heading your way. In the end, you will realize it is good for you and is definitely overdue. Career moves should be put into play and a complete makeover will boost your confidence. ★★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can have fun but get your responsibilities out of the way first. Try to mix business with pleasure. An act of kindness will go a long way toward forming a partnership with someone you regard highly. ★★★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Separate your personal and business life. If you try to meld the two, you will fall short of your goals in both. Before you make a choice that will alter your routine, consider other ways to get the same results without giving up something you enjoy. ★★

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Someone you network with and admire will offer you a great suggestion that can revolutionize what you are trying to accomplish. A chance to take a pleasure trip or attend an entertaining event will lead to someone who can alter your life.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You've been juggling way too much for too long. It's time to turn things around and push some of the responsibilities burdening you onto someone else. Put time into achieving greater prosperity. ★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You won't leave much to the imagination if you start to discuss how you feel and what you want to do. Someone is likely to cut you short or talk behind your back. Instead, concentrate on what you can do immediately to feel better about your future. ★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may be stopped in your tracks if you try to push too much on others. Call on someone from your past and you will stand a better chance of getting the help needed. A career opportunity will require innovation on your part. ★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A financial move is evident. Look for any opportunity to turn what you have already into something even better. Collect an old debt and it will enable you to finance something you want to do. ★★★★ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Someone who can make a difference to how far you get may be talking behind your back. Communication and financial matters must be handled with care. Uncertainty regarding your personal life will make you uneasy. ★★ Birthday Baby: You are outgoing, adventuresome and open-minded. You have vision and creativity. You handle situations courageously and compassionately. 2009 UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
