The forensics evidence in the sexual assault that was reported Oct. 21 in downtown Steamboat Springs might be the deciding factor in solving the case, police said Thursday. Detectives with the Steam­ boat Springs Police Department forwarded forensic evidence to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation for analysis and continue to investigate the case. Detective Dave Kleiber, lead

investigator on the case, said the physical evidence is the best chance police have to find the alleged assailant. “We have no suspect infor­ mation to go on, so if we are able to make a case, it would be built through DNA and forensic evidence,” he said. Police did a forensic examination of the vic­ tim and an examination of the crime scene, he said. Kleiber said a woman report­ ed that one man assaulted her at 11th and Oak streets at about 1 a.m. Oct. 21. She was unable to provide a description of her

attacker, and there were no wit­ nesses. The woman also suffered minor scrapes in the incident, Kleiber said. Three sexual assaults were reported in Steamboat in the previous weeks, but Kleiber said the cases weren’t connected. The CBI’s analysis of evi­ dence probably will take about 90 days, he said. Capt. Bob DelValle said peo­ ple in Steamboat should always be aware of their surroundings and take care when they are out See Assault, page 14

Former Hayden Transportation Director Richard “Festus” Hagins talks Wednesday about his unexpected termination.

Hagins protests firing Ex-transportation director accuses School Board of illegal action Jack Weinstein

Richard “Festus” Hagins lost his job Monday, in a school district decision he says was illegal and without warning. Hagins has alleged that the Hayden School Board acted improperly by discussing his employment and voting to terminate his contract during executive session in its Oct. 21 meeting. Hagins learned that he was fired as the district’s transportation director in a letter he received Monday morning from Superintendent Greg Rockhold. It’s unclear who made the decision. Steamboat Pilot & Today attorney Chris Beall said it is illegal for school boards to go into executive session and provide only the reason, not the

particular matter being discussed. The board went into executive session Oct. 21 to discuss personnel matters. Neither board members nor Rockhold would say what the particular matter was. Colorado “Sunshine Law,” the state’s open meetings law, requires school boards to reveal the particular matter being discussed “in as much detail as possible.” “It is now well settled that the identification of the topic without a particular matter of the executive session is illegal,” Beall said.

Hagins said what concerned him was how he was terminated. “My major issue is the way they went about it,” he said. “It’s my understanding it was unanimous. It was a discussion about personnel without me, which is against state law. I had no recourse, no way to defend myself or understand the reasons why.” Hayden School Board President Brian Hoza said Thursday that last week’s executive session dealt with issues about personnel and students. He said the two issues were related but declined to comment further, citing personnel concerns. Rockhold also declined to provide the specific matter because it was discussed in executive session.

Hayden Police Chief Ray Birch requested Thursday night that his fifth full-time officer be reinstated in 2010. Birch gave his presentation during the second of two budget workshops the town has held with the Hayden Town Council to address the proposed $2.1 million 2010 general fund, which is its operational fund. It dealt with budgets for departments including police, administration, planning and building. The first budget workshop was Oct. 22 and covered the streets department, parks and recreation, and water and sewer. Birch said the presentation allowed him and his four fulltime and three part-time officers, who also attended the workshop, to educate the board about the issues they face daily. And it allowed Birch to show board members the need for the fifth officer and how the department would use the additional resource, he said. The Hayden Police Depar­ tment has enough funding in its $525,000 proposed 2010 budget for a part-time officer to work about a shift per week with the remaining two working to fill in or when shifts are available. The

fifth officer would cost the town more than $75,000 next year, including benefits, Birch said. Town Council member Chuck Grobe said everyone had to cut back in difficult times. He wanted to hear what level of service the department could offer with its current budget, which wasn’t part of Birch’s presentation. Birch said the town provides 20 hours of police service a day. His proposal to add a fifth officer would provide two onduty officers every night except Monday. Grobe said the department might have to get by on what’s budgeted because no one knew whether the economy would get worse before it gets better. Grobe said he understood the need to provide adequate police service and for the officers to get time off. In brief presentations to the board, officers said that was difficult. “We have to think outside the box when we’re in a pickle,” he said. “We can’t do what we’ve always done.” Grobe acknowledged that the level of service Hayden residents have come to expect might change with officers not being able to respond to a “barking dog” or other calls. Or there may be times when an officer is only on call, which Birch said

was a possibility. “I would like to remind you this is a position we’ve had in the past,” Birch said. “I just want it reinstated.” Council members Tom Rogalski, Tim Redmond and Richard “Festus” Hagins — Bill Hayden and Jim Haskins weren’t present — agreed that they’d like to see what the Police Department service levels and schedules would look like with the current budget. “I just don’t see it coming in 2010 today,” Mayor Lorraine Johnson said about the fifth officer. “In April or June, it may be something we can revisit. If we can give (the department) a little more help to ease the situation until we see what 2010 looks like, I think that will help.” Grobe suggested not committing any additional funds to the department yet. Council members asked Birch to present information about how the department would function with its current budget at next week’s meeting. Also at Thursday night’s budget workshop, Town Manager Russ Martin presented council members the administration’s budget, which included the addition of a part-time staff member in its proposed $287,000 budget.

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

I’ll pass on ‘opting out’ Ann Coulter


The Democrats’ all-new “opt out” idea for health care reform is the latest fig leaf for a total government takeover of the health care system. Democrats tell us they’ve been trying to nationalize health care for 65 years, but the first anyone heard of the “opt out” provision was about a week ago. They keep changing the language so people can’t figure out what’s going on. Coulter The most important fact about the “opt out” scheme allegedly allowing states to decline government health insurance is that a state can’t “opt out” of paying for it. All 50 states will pay for it. A state legislature only can opt out of allowing its own citizens to receive the benefits of a federal program they’re paying for.

It’s like a movie theater offering a “money back guarantee” and then explaining, you don’t get your money back, but you don’t have to stay and watch the movie if you don’t like it. That’s not what most people are thinking when they hear the words “opt out.” The term more likely to come to mind is “scam.” While congressional Democrats act indignant that Republicans would intransigently oppose a national health care plan that now magnanimously allows states to “opt out,” other liberals are being cockily honest about the “opt out” scheme. On The Huffington Post, the first sentence of the article on the opt-out plan is: “The public option lives.” Andrew Sullivan gloats on his blog, “Imagine Republicans in state legislatures having to argue and posture against an affordable health insurance plan for the folks, as O’Reilly calls them, while evil liberals provide it elsewhere.”

But the only reason government health insurance will be more “affordable” than private health insurance is that taxpayers will be footing the bill. That’s something that can’t be opted out of under the “opt out” plan. Which brings us right back to the question of whether the government or the free market provides better services at better prices. There are roughly 1 million examples of the free market doing a better job and the government doing a worse job. In fact, there is only one essential service the government does better: Keeping Dennis Kucinich off the streets. So, naturally, liberals aren’t sure. In Democratic circles, the jury’s still out on free market economics. It’s not settled science like global warming or Darwinian evolution. But in the meantime, they’d like to spend trillions of dollars to remake our entire health care See Coulter, page 9

Oval man cave Maureen Dowd THE NEW YORK TIMES

I felt a twinge of envy when I heard that my pal Tom Friedman had played golf with the president for five hours one September Sunday. Tom learned a lot about Barack Obama’s positions on weighty issues and sporty ones. (This president doesn’t cheat, and he does expect bets to be paid off.) My natural impulse was to shrug it off. Men always have craved private Dowd realms — the golf club, men’s club, garage, workshop, shed; a place to get away from the chatter and clatter of women and kids. (In Obama’s case, he may desire a testosterone break from his estrogen nest — a wife, two daughters and a motherin-law.)


Gordon Thorburn, the British author of the book “Men and Sheds,” explained that the word shed derived from the Anglo-Saxon “scead,” or shade. It was, in a metaphorical sense, obscure, an “intellectual pantry” or “spiritual home” where a man could reflect and dawdle with tools and toys. Like other bosses, presidents surround themselves with people who make them comfortable. Poppy Bush liked racy humor but was too gentlemanly to use it with women. So male advisers bonded with him by telling dirty jokes. Obama likes to play sports, watch sports and talk sports. (Even his favorite TV shows, “Mad Men” and “Entourage,” are set in male-dominated worlds.) So the Obama aides who can do that, like Robert Gibbs, have a deeper personal connection with the president than someone like Rahm Emanuel, the former ballet dancer who prefers yoga to golf.

Just as some men can’t ingratiate themselves through sports, some women can. Condi Rice drew close to W. — nudging away Dick Cheney — by working out with him and talking football. As long as I’ve covered politics, there were always women running up against “The Boys.” In 1984, Geraldine Ferraro complained about the “smart-ass white boys” from Walter Mondale’s campaign who tried to boss her around. As first lady, Hillary Clinton had to deal with Bill’s coterie of cocky “white boys.” It was a bit surprising that the same dynamic recurred with the first black president. But it is the very enormity of the change Obama represents that makes him cautious at times about more change. Because Obama regards himself as the change, he didn’t immediately see the need to alter what his aide Anita See Dowd, page 9 Bruce Tinsley allows readers to submit comments on stories, to create their own blogs and to participate in our Reader Forum.

lar front.” The First Couple is trying to let America digest the huge change that they signify. They know that Fox News is always ready to pounce with that “radical” label. Besides, if Obama starts using a quota system for recreation, it will give fuel to the Republican campaign to paint him as a hand-wringing, Momjeans-wearing girly-boy. Churlish Cheney charged the president with “dithering” on Afghanistan, and nerdy potential 2012 rival Tim Pawlenty, the Terror from Minnesota, accused Obama of “projecting potential weakness” on national security. Because the president is finally willing to let women in on the games, I offered up my own challenge: Scrabble. I’m curious about what X and Z words the smarty-pants Y chief executive can come up with. There might even be $10 in it for you, Mr. President.

Dunn calls the “optics.” His race also gives him cover; it took quite awhile for anyone to accuse Obama of being exclusionary. After stories about the frat-house atmosphere in the spheres of economics and national security, and snipes about an all-male basketball pickup game at the White House with Cabinet secretaries and congressmen, the president took Melody Barnes, his chief domestic policy adviser, golfing Sunday. “I wanted women to still hold their heads up, so I didn’t want to shoot triple bogies every hole,” said Barnes, who was hailed by the press for “smashing the grass ceiling.” She told me she grew up golfing with her dad and shoots around 100. She and Obama were partners and beat White House trip director Marvin Nicholson

and Obama’s Chicago pal, Eric Whitaker. “We laughed and gave each other a hard time and psyched each other out,” she said. “It was all on the line on the 18th hole, and I made a clutch putt, and now I’m $10 richer.” Naturally, some men — and women — caviled that Obama shouldn’t have caved on his Man Cave. “Will every game now have to have a certain number of Asians, atheists, vegetarians and public-option hard-liners?” groused one of my girlfriends. Just as the hoops-playing president is getting knocked for being too traditionally male, the hula-hooping Michelle is getting knocked for being too traditionally female. “She’s mostly played it safe,” Allison Samuels writes in Newsweek, “dabbling in traditional East Wing issues — much like the first ladies before her — without yet gaining much traction on any particu-

seemed like employer-provided health insurance was free. Employers were writing off their employee insurance plans as a business expense, but when the IRS caught on to what employers were doing, they tried to tax employer-provided health insurance as wages. But, by then, workers liked their “free” health insurance, voters rebelled, and the IRS backed down. So now, employer-provided health insurance is subsidized not only by the employees themselves through lower wages and salaries, but also by all taxpayers who have to make up the difference for this massive tax deduction. How many people are stuck in jobs they hate and aren’t good at, rather than going out and doing something useful, because they need the health insurance from their employers? I’m not just talking about MSNBC anchors — I mean throughout the entire economy. Almost everything wrong with our health care system comes from government interference with the free market. If the health care system is broken, then fix it. Don’t try to invent a new one premised on all the bad ideas that are causing problems in the first place.


system on a European socialist model. Sometimes the evidence for the superiority of the free market is hidden in liberals’ own obtuse reporting. In the past few years, The New York Times has indignantly reported that doctor appointments for Botox can be obtained much faster than appointments to check on possibly cancerous moles. The paper’s entire editorial staff was enraged by this preferential treatment for Botox patients, with the exception of a strangely silent Maureen Dowd. As the Times reported: “In some dermatologists’ offices, freer-spending cosmetic patients are given appointments more quickly than medical patients for whom health insurance pays fixed reimbursement fees.” As the kids say: Duh. This is the problem with all third-party payer systems — which is already the main problem with health care in America and will become inescapable with universal health care. Not only do the free-market segments of medicine produce faster appointments and shorter waiting lines, but they also produce more innovation

and price drops. Blindly pursuing profits, other companies are working overtime to produce cheaper, better alternatives to Botox. The war on wrinkles is proceeding faster than the war on cancer, declared by President Richard Nixon in 1971. In 1960, 50 percent of all health care spending was paid out of pocket directly by the consumer. By 1999, only 15 percent of health care spending was paid for by the consumer. The government’s share had gone from 24 percent to 46 percent. At the same time, Internal Revenue Service regulations made it a nightmare to obtain private health insurance. The reason you can’t buy health insurance as easily and cheaply as you can buy car insurance — or a million other products and services available on the free market — is that during World War II, FDR imposed wage and price controls. Employers couldn’t bid for employees with higher wages, so they bid for them by adding health insurance to the overall compensation package. Although employees were paying for their own health insurance in lower wages and salaries, their health insurance premiums never passed through their bank accounts, so it

Federal government aids landowners Lori Jazwick


ter knowledge of management for the natural resources of concern, which means that the federal government doesn’t want to pay for a stock tank if the landowner is going to con­ tinue to overgraze the ground. The newest program to be rolled out with the Farm Bill is the Conservation Stewardship Program. Finally, the govern­ ment has realized that most agricultural and livestock pro­ ducers are doing good things for the land while also trying to make a living. This program awards land­ owners for the good work they are doing, while also encourag­ ing them to take their conser­ vation efforts to the next level. The great thing about this pro­ gram is that it is customized for each landowner because no one is the same. A higher level of conservation for one landowner may be too high or too little for another landowner. This program allows the landowners to pick and choose the level that they are comfort­ able with and a level that will work best for their operation. Landowners who are awarded a contract with this program will receive a yearly payment per acre of ground enrolled for five years. Prices per acre vary significantly depending on land use and the level of conserva­ tion tied to that land. Now is the time to become more famil­ iar with it so you can make it work for you. If you have any natural resource concerns, please stop in and see us, or call for an appointment at 879-3225, ext. 3. We are here to help so you can attain your goal.

With the new Farm Bill (which was approved in 2008) finally rolling out some new programs and policies (it’s the federal government, we’re slow) it’s a good idea for every landowner or land manager to get in touch and find out what services are available to help them. Here are just a few of the things that the Natural Resources Conservation Service offices are doing locally. We still have our Environ­ mental Quality Incentives Program available for land­ owners who need help to install structures to better help them manage their property. Structures include cross fenc­ ing, stock water pipelines, tanks, water control structures and rock veins in the river. The NRCS will cover half the cost to help landowners install these structures. However, a person can’t just come in and get money to install these struc­ tures without a field visit from someone in the NRCS office. We want to make sure that we understand the need for the structure and make sure land­ owners are also aware of the importance of management. Basically, we look at cause and effect and encourage the landowner to better manage or tweak their management of the resource. This leads to a com­ prehensive plan. For instance, if the ground is grazed, the NRCS office and the landowner will develop a grazing management plan. A plan is established that the landowner is comfortable with, which could require a lot or a little management, which­ ever works best for the client and the pasture or rangeland. The comprehensive plan allows for better management or bet­

Moffat takes on homelessness County names November National Runaway Prevention Month Collin Smith



Justin Zufelt, 18, moved to Craig a little less than two months ago from Arizona, where he was staying with his grandfather and grandmother. He didn’t come with family. He said he came to find a new home. “It wasn’t the kind of place I wanted to be in,” Zufelt said about his former Arizona residence. “They were always telling me I was doing things wrong, that I wasn’t going to amount to anything.” In his determination, Zufelt turned to his family here, a great-uncle and great-aunt who were willing to take him in while he finished high school. Zufelt’s story is not unique, Moffat County officials said, and some youths don’t have extended family they feel comfortable turning to in times of need.

They hope to raise awareness and support for youth homelessness and runaways throughout November, which the Moffat County Commission recently proclaimed National Runaway Prevention Month. Gov. Bill Ritter and the U.S. Congress have made similar proclamations in recent weeks. The Moffat County Youth Services Department, Youth Leadership Team and local Rural Collaborative for Run­ away and Homeless Youth Advisory Committee have worked together to plan a series of events for local residents. Everything kicks off from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday at the Moffat County Courthouse, 221 W. Victory Way. Local youths plan to share their personal experiences, and homeless advocates and other county officials will discuss issues surrounding youth homelessness in the community. Organizers also will pass out free green light bulbs, which residents and businesses can put in their porch lights and storefronts to show their support and raise awareness. Monday also is the deadline for applications for the Creative Art Project contest, where young adults ages 12 to 24 can submit any original work they want that addresses the theme of “Answering the Call.”

Prizes will be awarded at a final judging at 2 p.m. Nov. 21 at the Community Budget Center, 555 Yampa Ave. Awards include $200 in Craig Chamber of Commerce spree bucks and an mp3 player. Organizers said there would be enough prizes for every entrant to take home something. The Youth Leadership Team, which is entirely made up of local teens, plans to do a stage show from 1 to 4 p.m. Nov. 7, 14 and 21 at the Community Budget Center, 555 Yampa Ave. Paula Reed, who is the leadership team’s coordinator, said the play will be about 15 minutes long and run throughout the time allotted. It will focus on two teens, one who ran away from his or her home and wants to sleep on the other’s couch. “The runaway problem is real,” Reed said. “Most of our kids who are runaways end up couch surfing. The kids are going to actually portray what it’s like for some of them who have done that in the past.” The play’s theme is an extension of the state slogan “A couch is not a home,” which county teenagers and officials created. Those participating in the art project should submit their entries — from paintings and photos to poems, videos or murals — to Reed by Nov. 21.

Recycling group to hold conference in Steamboat Deputy City Manager Wendy DuBord said Thursday that the Colorado Association for Recycling would host its annual conference in Steamboat Springs next year, from June 6 to 8 at the Sheraton Steamboat Resort Hotel. The event could bring as many as 300 people to Steamboat. DuBord said the zero-waste event would highlight the achievements of local groups including the Yampa Valley Sustainability Council and Yampa Valley Recycles, which DuBord said played a large role in bringing the CAFR conference to Steamboat.

Hagins continued from 4 also declined to say what particular matter was discussed during last week’s executive session. The other board members, Vance Fulton, Kurt Frentress and Sharon Nereson, couldn’t be reached for comment. The state’s Sunshine Law also states that “no adoption of any proposed policy, position, resolution, rule, regulation, or formal action,” except the review, approval and amendment of an executive session’s minutes “shall occur at any executive session that is not open to the public.” At the Sept. 16 School Board meeting, part-time district bus driver Tammie Mader, full-time driver Sharon Lighthizer and substitute bus driver Laurie Hallenbeck asked to address the board regarding their concerns about the transportation department, according to the minutes. Hallenbeck said the drivers raised concerns about buses leaking oil, buses having the wrong size tires and other bus maintenance issues. They raised concerns about Hagins not being in the district’s bus barn when he should have been and parents not being able to reach him, Hallenbeck said. Hoza stopped the public comment session and invited Mader, Lighthizer and Hallenbeck to stay and discuss their concerns with the board in executive session. Hallenbeck said only Mader joined the board in executive session because she had filed a grievance about her job. Hoza said Hagins was asked to stay after the meeting to discuss the issues during executive session. According to minutes from the Sept. 16 meeting, the board went into executive session regarding “personnel matters.” Beall also said that was illegal because the board didn’t announce the matter to be discussed. On Thursday, Hoza said the specific matter being discussed Sept. 16 was related to transportation. Hoza said the board needed to speak with Hagins in executive session and that he “wasn’t anywhere to be found.” The board remained in executive session for four hours. Hagins said he was walking around in the hallways of Hayden High School and Hayden Middle School but that no one came to find him. Regarding the issues raised by the drivers at the Sept. 16 meeting, Hagins said all buses complied with federal and Colorado Department of Education rules and regulations that deemed them safe for the road. In response to concerns

that drivers couldn’t reach him, raised by some drivers. Beall, the Pilot & Today he said some of his responsibilities took him out of the bus attorney, said that not only does barn.

Hagins, a former mayor of Hayden and current Town Council member, was hired as the district’s transportation director in June 2008 after 29 years as a journeyman mechanic at Wagner Equipment, including 20 years in Hayden. Hagins said he liked the school environment, having taught a diesel mechanic class for two years at the high school. When the job became available, he jumped on the chance to do something different. “I feel I implemented a level of service in this area, and this is how I was treated,” he said. Hagins said in addition to learning the Department of Education’s rules and regulations, his biggest task in his first year was fixing buses himself to cut costs instead of sending them to a third-party mechanic. Before the start of his second year, Hagins’ big project was amending the district’s bus routes, at Rockhold’s direction. That cut the number of stops nearly in half, saving wear and tear on vehicles and allowing the district to pull a bus from the routes. At a School Board meeting in August, Hagins told board members the new routes represented an estimated $10,000 in savings to the district. Hagins said he’s done a good job, which he said was reflected in his annual evaluation, a document he said he signed in the past two weeks. Hagins said he was most troubled because he says the School Board didn’t do its “due diligence.” He said they never asked him about the issues

steps to make his ‘handyman’ reputation a reality and had started his own business.” Bugg, 42, was killed Wed­ nesday night in a one-car roll­ over. A Colorado State Patrol investigation of the crash, south of Hayden, concluded that Bugg’s 1974 International Scout SUV rolled three times before coming to a rest on the side of the road. Bugg was ejected after the first roll and was pro­ nounced dead at the scene. He is survived by three daughters and his wife, Leslie. “Martin was an outdoors­ man who loved hunting, fishing, camping and, as of late, singing (Rodney Atkins country song) ‘Cleaning This Gun’ to his two teenage daughters,” the family statement read. “Martin was a loving hus­ band, father, son, brother and

friend who knew no strangers and would give the shirt off his back to anyone who needed it and was loved by all,” the fam­ ily wrote. According to the accident report, compiled by Trooper Brett Hilling, Bugg was driving south on Routt County Road 53, south of Hayden, at about 8:25 p.m. when he came to a left curve in the road, where Bugg veered off the right side of the road. Hilling found that Bugg drove along the right side of the road for some time before he drove back across the road, pos­ sibly into the northbound lane. The SUV then went back into the southbound lane, rotated clockwise and began to roll. Hilling said that Bugg was at a Hayden bar earlier in the night. He was dropped off at his house, and he was likely on his way to meet friends at a hunting

camp when he crashed, Hilling said. Bugg was not wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash, and alcohol was suspected based on the odor and witness statements, Hilling said. Routt County Coroner Rob Ryg said Bugg was killed by blunt-force trauma to the head. No autopsy is scheduled, but a toxicology test was sent to a company in Boulder. In lieu of flowers, a memo­ rial fund has been set up for his daughters in Bugg’s name at Mountain Valley Bank. Donations may be made at the Hayden and Steamboat branches. A memorial service, arranged through Grant Mortuary in Craig, is scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday at Hayden High School, with a dinner to follow at The Haven Assisted Living Center. — To reach Zach Fridell, call 871-4208 or e-mail

Candidates express ideas to boost local businesses District 1 candidate and former City Council President Kevin Bennett said he would work to return public bus service to Ski Time Square to help businesses hurt by the demolition; work to lower water rates, including commercial rates, in Old Town; work to support business by building assets that draw visitors, including parks, trails and open space; and “do everything possible” to not pay $1.3 million in city funds for the New Victory Highway. Plans for the road use funding from the city, Routt County and private developers to connect West Steamboat with the planned Overlook Park project and the Steamboat 700 annexation. “Take that money and put it into marketing,” Bennett said Thursday, adding that he also would “pull a small amount of reserves, if necessary, to increase marketing.” Bennett told the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association last week that he supports re-establishing the industrial enterprise zone, set to expire at the end of this year. He shares that support with his opponent, City Councilwoman Cari Herma­ cinski, who cast the lone vote Oct. 20 in support of the enterprise zone. Hermacinski is vacating the at-large seat. Hermacinski said if elected

to the District 1 seat, at the first meeting of a new council she will seek council consensus to ask businesses whether regulations exist that impede business, and if so, how to address those regulations, provided there is no effect on public safety. Hermacinski has said she would preserve funding for summer marketing, Mainstreet Steamboat Springs, special events and regional airports to sustain and build local tourism.

At-large Landscaper Kyle Pietras, running for the at-large City Council seat against Jim Engelken, said he would “try to get developers to focus on middle-class people and affordability,” because “if there are places to live, businesses will be a lot more open to opening a business here.” Pietras said the Steamboat 700 annexation could be a great success for local business because of the new opportunities it presents.

Letting the industrial enterprise zone expire is not necessarily a mistake, he said, “if there’s a possible citywide program that’s in the works.” “I think that’s a big opportunity for us, not just as far as tax relief goes, but inviting businesses here,” Pietras said. Engelken, on a break earlier this week from his job as dairy manager at Safeway, gave a simple answer to what his approach to business would be on City Council. “You try to avoid situations like Ski Time Square that have hurt local business,” he said. Engelken added that he “would support open space projects to keep the community attractive to everyone,” support summer marketing and promote affordable housing programs. “First and foremost, you do not allow the development community to dictate what you do,” he said.

those next five years.” Reisman’s opponent in the District 2 race, longtime local builder Ken Solomon, also cited cycling attractions and an expansion of marketing techniques. But Solomon primarily focused his business ideas on the construction industry, which he said often faces an excessively long permitting process for new projects. “Basically, you put one set of plans in and it has to go through a round robin of numerous approvals … and sometimes it sits on a desk for several days,” Solomon said. “It’s not the best process, and that can be expedited.” Solomon said he would welcome conversations with the Routt County Regional Building Department about expediting small remodels for homeowners and getting jobs under way. Reisman said the industrial enterprise zone could be a model for a similar, broader tax program. “You don’t just look at it from West Steamboat … you look at it across the board,” he said. Solomon expressed more direct support for the enterprise zone. “I think that was a successful program for 20 years, and I think we can use that model again,” he said.

Aspen and Snowmass are “closing the gap” in advance reservations for this season compared to last season, Aspen Skiing Co. Senior Vice President David Perry said Wednesday. Last year, phones at hotels and lodges didn’t ring in October, November and into December after the financial crisis hit with its full force. “The tap basically got turned off,” Perry said. It was understandable given that there were questions about jobs and retirement funds, let alone the stability of the international economy. This year, “people aren’t as scared” after some stability has returned, Perry said. As a result, the booking pattern is closer to two, three and four years ago. Stay Aspen Snowmass, a central bookings firm, has increased its number of reservations each of the past four weeks compared to the same weeks last year, Perry said. That said, advance reserva-

tions still are behind where they were at this point last season. Perry said it will be “difficult” for the ski company to match last season’s skier days, which decreased 7.3 percent from the year before. The ski company logged 1.36 million skier days last season. The ski industry decreased 5.5 percent to 57.1 million. The ski company is forecasting that its business will be flat this winter, but Perry acknowledged at a public meeting this week that “we’ve got a lot of work to do” just to match last season. Assuming the snowfall amount is average or better this winter — and there are no cataclysmic economic events — business at Aspen and Snowmass will “lag behind” for the first half of the ski season, Perry said. There is an opportunity for the second half to be better, he said. One of the ski company’s main marketing initiatives for the winter is to lure families for spring break. A child between ages 7 and 12 can ski and stay for free during March when an

adult books a four-day, fivenight lift ticket and lodging package by Jan. 15. March is the bread-and-butter month. Advance bookings for the month still are behind last year’s, but Perry is optimistic the package will help attract customers. One trend created by the recession is more last-minute bookings. Savvy travelers know they can find bargains by waiting. That’s creating uncertainty for Perry and other executives in the travel and leisure business. “Are we behind because of the late booking trend, or are we behind because of business not materializing?” Perry asked. He’s encouraged that the pace of reservations picked up in the past month. Bill Tomcich, president of Stay Aspen Snowmass, said that typically about 50 percent of winter reservations in the two resorts are made by Thanksgiving. Only about 20 percent of reservations are made by now, so there is plenty of time to boost the numbers. “That’s why it’s not impossible to close the gap,” he said.

Before Birch’s presentation, Martin said this year’s sales tax revenue still was projected to come in $20,000 more than the $810,000 estimate. He said the 2010 sales tax projection was 10 percent lower than this year’s revised estimate. Martin said the first reading

Music documentary, PG, 112 minutes

“This is it,” Michael Jackson told his fans in London, announcing his forthcoming concert tour. “This is the final curtain call.” The curtain fell sooner than expected. What is left is this extraordinary documentary, nothing at all like what I was expecting to see. Here is not a sick and drugged man forcing himself through grueling rehearsals, but a spirit embodied by music. Michael Jackson was something else. The film has been assembled from rehearsals from April through June 2009 for a concert tour scheduled for last summer. The footage was “captured by a few cameras,” an opening screen tells us, but they were professional highdef cameras and the sound track is full-range stereo. The result is one of the most revealing music documentaries I’ve seen. Rating: ★★★★

‘Astro Boy’ Animated adventure, PG, 94 minutes

Metro City orbits above an Earth buried in garbage. Its citizens are waited on hand and foot by robots, and things will get even better now that Toby’s dad (Nicolas Cage) has invented the unlimited Blue energy. But the warmonger president (Donald Sutherland) snatches the dangerous Red energy, Toby dies in an accident, his memories are transferred by his dad into the little robot Astro Boy, and so on. Bright and peppy, with a nice moral and, best of all, no 3-D. Rating: ★★★

‘Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant’ Comedy adventure, PG-13, 108 minutes

This movie includes good vampires, evil vampaneze, a wolf-man, a bearded lady, a monkey girl with a long tail, a snake boy, a dwarf with a four-foot forehead and a spider the size of your shoe, and they’re all boring. They’re in a traveling sideshow that comes to town and lures two insipid high school kids (Josh Hutcherson and Chris Massoglia) into a war between enemy vampire factions. Unbearable. With John C. Reilly, Salma Hayek, Ken Watanabe, Patrick Fugit and other wasted talents. Rating: ★★

‘Capitalism: A Love Story’ Documentary, R, 117 minutes’

Michael Moore’s latest doesn’t suggest a solution for our economy and is a little disorganized, but it contains chilling explanations of “peasant insurance” and the Wall

Street gambling known as “derivatives.” There is also awesome, long-forgotten footage of Franklin Roosevelt calling for a Second Bill of Rights. And first-person testimony from victims of the meltdown. Rating: ★★★★

‘Paranormal Activity’ Horror Thriller, R, 96 minutes

An ingenious little horror film, so well made it’s truly scary, that arrives claiming it’s the real thing. A young couple is bothered by a paranormal presence in their home, so the husband decides to leave a camera running while they sleep. A film that illustrates how silence and waiting can be more entertaining than frantic fast-cutting and berserk effects. Rating: ★★★★

Maurice Sendak’s muchloved 1963 children’s book becomes a big-budget fantasy, with particularly good realizations of his Wild Things, creatures on an island visited in the imagination of a small boy (Max Records). But the plot is simple stuff, spread fairly thin by director Spike Jonze and writer Dave Eggers. Rating: ★★★

‘Where the Wild Things Are’ (PG)

‘The Invention of Lying’

Wildhorse Stadium Cinemas

Comedy, PG-13, 99 minutes

In its amiable, quiet way, this is a remarkably radical comedy about a world where everyone always tells the truth. When Ricky Gervais discovers he can lie, this gives him incredible power. Jennifer Garner plays the great beauty who informs him truthfully that he’s short and fat and not an ideal genetic match. He agrees. Then he discovers by accident a suggestion that inspires joy and gratitude from the entire world. Its implications are radical, but the movie is so well-mannered and laid-back that it gets away with it. Rating: ★★★★

‘Couples Retreat’ Comedy, PG-13, 107 minutes

Four troubled couples make a week’s retreat to an island paradise where they hope to be healed, which indeed happens, according to ages-old sitcom formulas. The jolly ending is agonizing in its step-by-step obligatory plotting. Starring Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Faizon Love, Jon Favreau, Malin Akerman, Kristen Bell, Kristin Davis and Kali Hawk.

The Nude Blues Band promises raw emotion in 1st show

The GreatDowntown


Join us for a e! Howlin’ Good Tim at The Old Town Pub!

There’s no nudity involved in Little Laura and The Nude Blues Band’s live show. There is a stripped-down effect that comes from six musicians with decades of playing experience, letting all their guards down and playing raw, barebones blues music that bares its soul, said “Little” Laura Lamun, the band’s lead singer.

The Nude Blues Band plays its first show at 9 p.m. today at the Ghost Ranch Saloon. Admission is free, and the set list covers classic blues hits, 1970s funk, danceable covers and original songs by Nude Blues Band founder Dave Allen, Lamun said. “We play about any kind of blues you can think of. … It’s really for dancing and shaking your booty to. That’s the kind of blues we play — booty-shaking blues,” she said.

With Lamun on lead vocals and Allen on harmonica and vocals, the Nude Blues Band is Neil Marchman on guitar; See Blues, page 22

Matt Damon stars as the highest-ranking executive in U.S. history to blow the whistle in a case of corporate fraud. He exposed global price-fixing by Archer Daniels Midland, the Decatur, Ill., agribusiness conglomerate, after wearing an FBI wire for 30 months. Along the way, incidentally, he was embezzling $9 million for his own use, a detail he neglected to share with the FBI. Steven Soderbergh’s top-flight thriller, based on facts and shot on the original central Illinois locations, subtly becomes a human comedy. Rating: ★★★★ — Roger Ebert

The best you can say about the remake of “The Stepfather,” that serial-killerin-mommy’s-bed tingler of 1987, is that it efficiently goes about its business. The suspense is there, but because there’s no mystery to this thriller, it’s all about how soon the teen (Penn Badgley) will figure out who that creep Mom wants to marry really is,

Tim Cunningham on bass; Ron Wheeler on drums; and Ed Dingledine on piano. The band has rehearsed once or twice a week for the past seven months, nailing down blues vamps and grooves before its first show today. That long buildup has given the group enough material to fill a threehour set, and a jump-start the band’s members hope could transition into a regular gig, Lamun said. “We want the people who used to love the blues in Steamboat to come out and show themselves so we can maybe make this a weekly event,” she said.

Lamun sings backup vocals in the 1960s rock and Neil Young tribute band The Easy Peaces and has contributed her voice to local bluegrass bands and instrumental jazz Friday nights at Three Peaks Grill. She started performing at 5 years old, starting singing for money at 11, went to the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and has performed on and off ever since. The Nude Blues Band will be the first project she’s fronted in years, one Allen created partly to get her back into singing, Lamun said. “It seems like I’ve always been trying to sing the blues. Even when I sing jazz it seems


Horror, R, 93 minutes

It’s still torture porn, more excruciating than scary. It’s still all about the elaborate and gory “games” the victims must win to survive Jigsaw’s test of character, redemption and humanity. Body parts are lost, guts spill and sharp objects pierce to the sound of screams in the night. But this script, by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, has a more lyrical bent, and a more satiric bite, than any of the other “Saw” sequels. That’s a bit like saying “You’re fully covered, until you make that first claim,” but hey, “Saw” movies make you grasp at straws. Rating: ★★ — Roger Moore, MCT

like this blues girl wants to come out. I’ve always had this bluesy edge. … I’ve always wanted to let my blues out,” she said. The Nude Blues Band gives Lamun and the rest of its musicians a chance to let that emotion go, she said. “It’s definitely taking some of the best musicians in town and giving them a chance to shine,” Lamun said. “Everyone’s getting a chance to shine in a way that people haven’t been able to see in town. … What comes out of these guys on stage is going to be a raw emotion.” — To reach Margaret Hair, call 871-4204 or e-mail

Snowstorm moving out of Colorado


Blizzard-like conditions hit Nebraska, Kansas after closing roads, canceling flights THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


A large, powerful autumn snowstorm slowly moved out of Colorado on Thursday and trudged toward Nebraska and Kansas, causing blizzard-like conditions on the eastern plains and leaving in its wake treacherous roads and hundreds of canceled flights. The storm dropped more than 3 feet of snow in areas of the foothills west of Denver and closed schools and businesses. Roads across the region remained snowpacked and icy, shutting the Mount Rushmore National Memorial in western South Dakota. “Big storms like these, they seem to come around every 10 to 12 years,” said Kyle Fredin, a National Weather Service meteorologist. The storm also spread a blanket of white from northern Utah’s Wasatch Front to western Nebraska’s northern border with South Dakota. Blizzard conditions affected much of eastern Colorado as the storm moved into the cen-

tral Plains. The weather service warned most eastern Colorado roads would be impassible Thursday night because of blowing snow and near-zero visibility. Other road closures included a 40-mile stretch of Interstate 80 from Cheyenne to Laramie; and a 35-mile span of Interstate I-25 from Wellington to Cheyenne; and I-80 west of Big Springs to Laramie, Wyo., a stretch spanning almost 200 miles.

Frontier, United cancel flights because of snow DENVER

The snow storm moving across Colorado is causing headaches for airport travelers. Frontier Airlines reported it canceled 19 flights in and out of Denver International Airport on Thursday because the airport has been unable to keep enough runways and taxiways open. The airline also reported some flights have been delayed by as much as four hours.

Rebecca Shoffner

United Airlines, the dominant carrier at DIA, canceled about half of its flights. Spokesman Charlie Hobart said the move keeps delays and cancelations from spilling over into the next day. Airport spokesman Chuck Cannon says DIA crews are keeping up with snow removal.

More than 100 camp in snow outside Chick-fil-A FORT COLLINS

Despite the snow, more than 100 people camped in a Fort Collins parking lot for a chance to win a year’s supply of free chicken. Chick-fil-A opened a new restaurant Thursday morning and, as with other grand openings, the company promised a free chicken sandwich meal every week for a year to the first 100 customers. Chick-fil-A representative Hollee Swain said 104 people plus two children turned out even though only customers older than 18 are eligible. Swain says campers huddled around propane heaters sup-

plied by the company and were invited inside for hot chocolate and cookies before bedding down in subzero sleeping bags in their tents. The four people who didn’t make the cut received gift bags with coupons for free meals.

Colorado officials warn about avalanche danger BOULDER

The early start to Colorado’s snow season has already resulted in several avalanches. The Colorado Avalanche Information Center reported Thursday that five people have reported triggering slides in the backcountry. There haven’t been any serious injuries, but four of the slides resulted in at least one person being swept downhill. Center director Ethan Greene said that while the early snow may look inviting, backcountry users should be careful not to expose themselves to unnecessary risks. Skiers and climbers have reported triggering three slides in Rocky Mountain National Park.

A Colorado court ruled Thursday that a medical marijuana provider must have personal contact with her patients to be considered a primary caregiver. The decision upholds the conviction against Stacy Clendenin, a Longmont woman found guilty of marijuana cultivation and possession with intent to distribute. She was sentenced in February 2008 to one year of unsupervised probation and 48 hours of community service. Clendenin argued she was responsible for clients she never met. But the Colorado Court of Appeals wrote that a caregiver must do more to help a patient with a debilitating condition

than just supply marijuana. Clendenin had said she wanted a new trial to prove she wasn’t a drug dealer. Her attorney, Robert Corry, said she likely would appeal to the state Supreme Court. Colorado voters legalized marijuana use and cultivation for medicinal purposes in 2000 but the state doesn’t license or regulate dispensaries, outlets that sell it. Although the law has been in effect for several years, municipalities across the state are still trying to determine how to handle the growing number of dispensaries, and in some cases have barred them from opening until local governments pass rules. More than 10,000 people in Colorado use medical marijuana and more than 60 dispensaries have opened in the state.

The Appeals Court said Clendenin’s case was the first time Colorado had reviewed the caregiver definition. The court cited Washington and California as states that have come to a similar conclusion about what it means to be a primary caregiver to medical marijuana patients. Still, one Appeals Court judge said in the ruling the Colorado’s medical marijuana amendment “cries out for legislative action.” “I could not agree more,” said Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, whose office argued against Clendenin’s appeal. Authorities found 44 marijuana plants when they searched Clendenin’s Longmont home in October 2006. She argued that a lower court wrongly prevented her clients from testifying that she was their provider through a cooperative she supplied.

A Boulder restaurant wants to help participants in the annual Halloween “Naked Pumpkin Run” avoid arrest by providing them with low-cut orange underwear. About a dozen people running naked in Boulder while wearing freshly gutted pumpkins on their heads were ticketed last year for indecent exposure. No one was convicted but there was concern that under state law the streakers would be labeled sex offenders if they had been.

Murchison and 28-year-old Chasaity Peoples allegedly first told police that they had stopped to help a stranded motorist and that the driver shot him. Sgt. Jim Meyers says officers were suspicious and continued to question them. He says Peoples finally confessed to what happened. Murchison is expected to remain hospitalized for the next few days but is expected to recover. He and his girlfriend could be charged with false reporting.

After a record four straight losing quarters, the economy finally grew again. It was hardly a boom, and it was almost all because of government spending. But it was enough to change the question from when the recession will end to whether the recovery will hold. Unlike past rebounds that were driven by the spending of everyday Americans, this one appears to hinge on spending by businesses, foreigners and — until it runs out — the government. Helped in large part by federal support for spending on cars and homes, the economy grew at an annual rate of 3.5 percent from July through September, the government reported Thursday.

Cheered by President Barack Obama, House Democrats rolled out landmark legislation Thursday to extend health care to tens of millions who lack coverage, impose sweeping new restrictions on the insurance industry and create a government-run option to compete with private insurers. But even as party leaders pointed toward a vote next week, there were fresh questions that went to the heart of their ambitious drive to remake the nation’s health care system. Congressional budget experts predicted the controversial government insurance option would probably cost consumers somewhat more than private coverage. At the same time, rank-andfile conservative Democrats sought additional information

about the bill’s overall impact on federal health care spending. There was no official estimate on the total cost of the legislation, which ran to 1,990 pages. The Congressional Budget Office reported the cost of additional coverage alone was slightly more than $1 trillion over a decade. But that omitted other items, including billions for disease prevention programs. Yet another $230 billion or more in higher fees for doctors treating Medicare patients, included in an earlier version of the bill, was stripped out and will be voted on separately. The measure “covers 96 percent of all Americans, and it puts affordable coverage in reach for millions of uninsured and underinsured families, lowering health care costs for all of us,” boasted Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., at a ceremony attended by dozens of Democratic lawmakers. She spoke on the steps of the

Capitol, not far from where Obama issued his inaugural summons for Congress to act more than nine months ago. Pelosi said the legislation would reduce federal deficits over the next decade by $104 billion, and congressional budget experts said it probably would reduce them even further during the following 10 years. While saying they expected a vote next week, Democratic leaders were careful not to claim they had yet rounded up enough votes to pass the legislation. Still, the day’s events capped months of struggle and marked a major advance in their drive — and Obama’s — to accomplish an overhaul of the health care system that has eluded presidents for a half-century. Across the Capitol, the Democratic-controlled Senate is expected to begin debate within two weeks on a bill crafted by Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

Financial bill meets wary reception House proposal sees Republican resistance, Democratic doubts Jim Kuhnhenn and Anne Flaherty THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


An Obama administration plan to dissolve large, struggling financial firms rather than bail them out is encountering Republican resistance, Democratic doubts and only qualified support from regulators. At a House Financial Services hearing Thursday, lawmakers from both parties worried that the proposal would give regulators and the executive branch unprecedented power. “I’m not a man that fears this administration or you,” Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa., told Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. “But I do fear the accumulation of power exercised by someone in the future that can be extraordinary.” Others argue that by singling out financial firms important to the economy, the government could inevitably set itself up to bail them out, and that even dismantling rather than rescuing

them would take taxpayer money. “Apparently, the ‘too big to fail’ model is too hard to kill,” quipped Republican Rep. Ed Royce of California. Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., called the bill “TARP on steroids,” referring to the government’s $700 billion Wall Street rescue fund. Geithner disagreed. “The only authority we would have would be to manage their failure,” he told the committee. The debate comes as Congress works on legislation to respond to the financial crisis that clobbered Wall Street last year and fed the recession. For the committee’s chairman, Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., who wrote the proposal in close coordination with Treasury, the broad skepticism illustrates the delicate work needed to tackle such a big task. The legislation would let federal regulators identify and monitor big financial firms and step in to wind them down before they collapse. If the

government must use taxpayer money to dissolve a company, Treasury would recoup those costs by imposing a fee on firms with assets of at least $10 billion. When to create such a fund has become a significant point of contention. Frank and the administration recommended that any taxpayer infusion be recovered after the fact from large institutions. But Sheila Bair, the director of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., which would conduct such a wind down, said the industry should pay into an insurance-like fund ahead of time. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., and AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka pressed for a similar structure. Large financial firms, however, oppose an up-front payment. And Geithner said a prepaid fund would increase the temptation — or “moral hazard” — for companies to take excessive risks with the expectation that the government will step in to protect them.

Some see favoritism in Obama girls’ vaccination Lindsey Tanner THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

With Dad a world leader and Nobel Prize winner, Malia and Sasha Obama surely could have been first in line when vaccinations began for swine flu. They weren’t, White House officials said. But that hasn’t stopped complaints that President Barack Obama’s daughters got preferential treatment. “You definitely think there’s some favoritism going on,” said Vernon Stanley, who stood for hours in the snow Tuesday to

Stimulus job figures overstated in report

get his 6-year-old granddaughter vaccinated near Salt Lake City. Snarky comments began popping up on blogs and other online sites after Tuesday’s announcement that the Obama girls got vaccinated by the White House doctor last week. “We have two very compromised special needs children in our home” but can’t find any vaccine, Walter Ponfick of New Braunfels, Texas, said in comments posted on a Fox News blog. “Makes me think just the important population is able to be taken care of.”

Many doctors and public health experts have a different take. For one thing, children are one of the high-risk groups that the government says should get swine flu vaccine first. Even then, the Obama girls weren’t rushed to the head of the line. They got their vaccine at least two weeks after the first Americans received their shots and, according to Michelle Obama’s spokeswoman, only after vaccine became available to other Washington schoolchildren. And no vaccine shortages have been reported in

Washington’s schools. Announcing that the girls have been vaccinated “is a great example for all families,” said Dr. Judith Palfrey, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics. “It’s an important statement about how important vaccines are.” Emory University vaccine expert Saad Omer said his research has shown that parents are likely to support immunization if they learn that their doctors have vaccinated their own children. The Obamas’ decision could be just as influential, he said.

Dr. Mark Dworkin, an infectious-disease specialist at the University of Illinois at Chicago, agreed. And he suggested there is good reason to give preferential treatment to the presidential daughters, 11-year-old Malia and 8-year-old Sasha. “If his children get sick with a high fever, that’s very distracting for any parent, and we all want his attention focused on all the issues before him,” Dworkin said. Also, if Malia and Sasha were to get the flu, their father could catch it from them. “That’s a guy I don’t want to see out sick,” Dworkin said.

White House: New report due today Brett J. Blackledge and Matt Apuzzo THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


The White House is promising that new figures being released today will be a more accurate showing of progress in President Barack Obama’s economic recovery plan. It aggressively defended an earlier, faulty count that overstated by thousands the jobs created or saved so far. Ed DeSeve, serving as Obama’s stimulus overseer, said the administration has been working for weeks to correct mistakes in early counts that identified more than 30,000 jobs paid for with stimulus money. He said a new stimulus report today should correct many mistakes an Associated Press review found that showed the earlier report overstated thousands of stimulus jobs. “I think you’ll see a pretty good degree of accuracy,” DeSeve said in an interview. The AP reviewed a sample of federal contracts, not all 9,000 reported to date, and discovered errors in one in six jobs credited to the $787 billion stimulus program — or 5,000 of the 30,000 jobs claimed. Even in its limited review, the AP found job counts that were more than 10 times as high as the actual number of paid positions; jobs credited to the stimulus program that were counted two and sometimes more than four times; and other jobs that were credited to stimulus spending when none was produced.

Prevention, who led the study. But experts noted several possible explanations: West Virginia ranks at or near the bottom of the nation in several important measurements of health, including obesity, smoking, heart disease and the proportion of adults with disabilities. Studies have increasingly found sleeping problems in people with certain health problems, including obesity. “You would expect to see poorer sleep within a chroni-

cally diseased population,” noted Darrel Drobnich of the National Sleep Foundation, a nonprofit advocacy and research organization. Some experts believe sleepdeprived people are more inclined to eat fatty foods during the day. “There’s growing evidence sleep deprivation promotes obesity,” said Dr. Ronald Chervin, a University of Michigan sleep disorders expert.

Sleepless in Seattle? Hardly. West Virginia is where people really are staying awake, according to the first government study to monitor state-by-state differences in sleeplessness. West Virginians’ lack of sleep was about double the national rate, perhaps a side effect of health problems such as obesity, experts said. Nearly 1 in 5 West Virginians said they did not get a single good night’s sleep in the previous month. The national average was about 1 in 10, according to a federal health survey conducted last year and released Thursday. Tennessee, Kentucky and Oklahoma also were notably above average in their reported lack of sleep. In contrast, North Dakota had fewer problems sleeping, with only 1 in 13 reporting that degree of sleeplessness. Health officials do not know the exact reasons for the differences. “We didn’t ask ‘Why didn’t you get enough rest or sleep?”’ said Lela McKnight-Eily, an epidemiologist for the Centers for Disease Control and

Signs of an improving economy might be in your kitchen or bathroom cupboards. Consumers are showing a willingness to pay a little more to get Colgate toothpaste, Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes and Gillette Fusion shavers. That’s good news for the economy and the multibillion-dollar companies that make those products and have been battling to keep shoppers from trading down to store brands to save money. Procter & Gamble Co., Colgate-Palmolive Co. and Kellogg Co. gave upbeat earnings reports and even stronger outlooks for next year Thursday, a day that also saw the announcement that U.S. gross domestic product rose for the first time in a year. “The strongest brands are the most resilient to economic stress and the first to bounce back as soon as consumers can pay for it, because they don’t want to trade down,” said Allen Adamson, managing director of branding firm Landor Associates. “They want to get what they want.”

AROUND THE NATION College enrollment up, mostly at 2-year schools Some are there because of the recession and others despite it. Regardless, more young Americans than ever are in college — especially community college, according to a new report. A record high of about 11.5 million Americans age 18 to 24, or nearly 40 percent, attended college in October 2008, according to a study of Census data released Thursday by the Pew Research Center. Virtually all the increase of 300,000 students during the previous year came at two-year schools, while attendance at four-year schools remained flat. Community colleges almost certainly saw attendance go up at least that much again this year, though final figures are not yet available. The American Association of Community Colleges reports growth rates of 10 percent and higher have been common this fall on many campuses.

New Hampshire hikers must be prepared or pay CONCORD, N.H.

Stranded with a sprained ankle on a snow-covered mountain, Eagle Scout Scott Mason put his survival skills to work by sleeping in the crevice of a boulder and jump-starting evergreen fires with hand sanitizer gel. He put plastic bags inside his boots to keep his feet dry as he sloshed through mountain runoff hidden beneath waist-deep snow. After three cold days last April, rescue crews spotted him hiking toward the summit of Mount Washington, the Northeast’s highest mountain. New Hampshire officials praised his resourcefulness. So grateful was he for his rescuers that Mason, 17, sent $1,000 to the state. Sometime later, New Hampshire sent him a bill: $25,734.65 for the cost of rescuing him. New Hampshire is one of eight states with laws allowing billing for rescue costs, but only New Hampshire has made frequent attempts to do so.


Secretary of state says officials were lax in al-Qaida hunt Robert Burns



U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton chided Pakistani officials Thursday for failing to press the hunt for al-Qaida inside their borders, suggesting they know where the terror leaders are hiding. American officials have long said that al-Qaida mastermind Osama bin Laden and senior lieutenants of the network accused in the Sept. 11 attacks operate out of the rugged terrain along the border with Afghanistan. But Clinton’s unusually blunt comments went further in asserting that Pakistan’s government has done too little about it. “I find it hard to believe that nobody in your government knows where they are and couldn’t get them if they really wanted to,” Clinton said in an interview with Pakistani journalists in Lahore. “Maybe that’s the case. Maybe they’re not gettable. I don’t know.” There was no immediate reac-

tion from Pakistani officials, but the thrust of Clinton’s comments were startling, coming after months of lavish public comments from her and Clinton other American officials portraying Pakistan’s leaders as finally receptive to the war against militants inside their own country. As a political spouse, career public official and recently as a diplomat, Clinton has long showed a tendency toward bluntness, sometimes followed by a softening of her comments. But her remarks about Pakistan’s lack of action against al-Qaida comes at a particularly sensitive moment — amid a major Pakistani offensive against militants and a deadly spate of insurgent violence. With Pakistan reeling from Wednesday’s devastating bombing that killed more than 100 people in Peshawar, Clinton also engaged in an intense giveand-take with students at the Government College of Lahore.

She insisted that inaction by the government would have ceded ground to terrorists. “If you want to see your territory shrink, that’s your choice,” she said, adding that she believed it would be a bad choice. Richard Holbrooke, the special U.S. representative on Afghanistan and Pakistan, told reporters that Clinton planned to meet late Thursday with the army chief, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, to get an update about the offensive that began Oct. 17 against Taliban forces in a portion of the tribal areas near the Afghan border. “We want to encourage them,” Holbrooke said of the Pakistanis. “She wants to get a firsthand account of the military situation.” During her exchange with the Pakistani journalists, one reporter asked Clinton why the fight against terrorism seemed to put Pakistan at the center and why other countries couldn’t do more. Clinton noted that al-Qaida has launched attacks on Indonesia, the Philippines and many other countries throughout the years.

Violence threatens Afghan election Robert H. Reid and Heidi Vogt THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


The Taliban’s brazen attack on U.N. election workers undermines the U.N.’s ability to help steer Afghanistan through a runoff election in only 10 days. Although the U.N. insists it will not be deterred by the assault, another big attack could derail its limited ability to assure a credible vote and remain in the country. Most of the U.N.’s interna-

tional staff in Afghanistan were ordered to stay home Thursday, a day after militants stormed a residential hotel housing U.N. employees, killing five of them, including one American. Six other people died, including the three attackers. The lockdown does not apply to the 140 U.N. personnel helping the Afghans prepare for the Nov. 7 presidential runoff, according to U.N. spokesman Dan McNorton. Time is running out to arrange a ballot that already faces threats ranging from Taliban

violence to possible early winter snow. “They’re going to warehouses or meetings, or the airport to check on logistics,” McNorton said of U.N. election workers. He said technical advisers will be sent to the provinces in time for the vote, although all assignments will be reviewed to make sure the staff is reasonably safe. “Yesterday was obviously a disruption, but the work and the support that we’re providing remains strong and is working,” he said.

Iran’s president pledged Thursday to work with the West to resolve a standoff over its nuclear program even as his country reportedly balked at a U.S.backed deal to limit its uranium enrichment and curb its ability to make a nuclear warhead. A Western diplomat said Iran rejected a plan to export most of its enriched uranium, offering instead to enrich it to a higher level inside the country with U.N. supervision. The disconnect between the words of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Tehran’s decision, as related by the diplomat,

reflected the difficulties facing international negotiators trying to persuade Iran to give up enrichment. Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, whose country holds the European Union’s rotating presidency, was dismissive after seeing the offer. “It’s the same old tricks,” he told the AP: “A back-and-forth for further talks.” Iran was considering a plan proposed last week by International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei at talks involving Iran, the U.S., Russia and France. A negotiator said the draft would commit Iran to delivering 70 percent of its lowenriched uranium to Russia in one shipment for further enrich-

Paul and Rachel Chandler, a retired British couple who sailed to exotic locales aboard their 38-foot yacht, said in one of their last cheery messages they would likely be “out of touch for some time.” After disappearing for a week, a somber Paul Chandler is back in contact, saying by telephone Thursday that he and his wife are being held captive by gun-toting pirates who stripped their vessel of everything of value. Despite the presence of warships and aircraft from more than a half-dozen nations, the pirates prowl the Indian Ocean off Somalia seemingly at will, pouncing on pleasure craft, fishing vessels and huge cargo ships. With the recent end of mon-

soon season in East Africa, there have been a rash of attacks as pirates return to the open seas. More than 190 crew members from eight ships are being held. The latest seizure Thursday was of a Thai fishing vessel carrying 21 Russians, two Filipinos and two Ghanians, the Seychelles coast guard said. Paul Chandler told Britain’s ITV News in a phone call that he and his wife were being held aboard a container ship anchored a mile from the Somali coast. They apparently had been briefly taken ashore. A fisherman said he saw two boats carrying eight pirates and a white couple come ashore in the village of Ceel Huur, just north of Haradhere, a notorious pirate stronghold. Dahir Dabadhahan said six luxury vehicles carrying about 30 other pirates cleared bystanders from their path. “The pirates fired into the

ment and conversion into fuel for a Tehran research reactor. Sending that amount in one batch would leave Tehran without enough material to make weapons-grade uranium should it decide to make a warhead. Experts say Iran would need at least a year to produce enough to make up for the exported material, giving the international community a window of opportunity to persuade the Islamic Republic to freeze its enrichment program. According to the Western diplomat familiar with the reply, the Islamic Republic rejected the main thrust of the offer — shipping out most of its stockpile — and was instead proposing to further enrich it inside Iran under IAEA supervision.

Soroco’s Brittany Shaffer tries to tap the ball over a pair of Hayden defenders last week. The Rams and the Tigers will compete starting today in the district volleyball tournament in Meeker.

Hayden, Soroco hope to find peak Joel Reichenberger PILOT & TODAY STAFF


The Hayden High School volleyball team and its cross-county counterpart, Soroco, enter today’s district tournament knowing why they are among the bottom seeds. Soroco is the sixth seed, and Hayden is No. 8 among the eight district teams. “At times this season we played like an eighth seed,” Hayden coach Greg Johnson admitted Thursday afternoon, preparing for the trip to the Meeker tournament. Still, both are confident they can outplay their seeds and emerge as one of the top two teams in the district. Action in the two-day tournament kicks off at 9 a.m. today. Vail Christian reigns as the top seed, ahead of No. 2 Rangely, No. 3 Paonia, No. 4 West Grand, No. 5 Vail Mountain, No. 6 Soroco, No. 7 Meeker and No. 8 Hayden. Split into two pools, the teams will each get three matches in a round-robin format. The top two teams from each pool will advance to Saturday’s semifinals and play for the chance to represent the district in the regional tournament. The teams that win in the semifinals will advance to regionals, regardless of the See Volleyball, page 39


Steamboat Springs High School senior Austin Hinder dives over the goal line to take the Sailors to a 14-7 lead during their Oct. 24 game against Moffat County. The Sailors are 8-0 overall and 7-0 in the Western Slope League, and the team hopes to keep the unbeaten streak alive in tonight’s game against Buena Vista.

Sailors hope to stay undefeated Luke Graham



As storied a coaching career as Bob Marken has had, the Buena Vista High School football coach knows what his team faces. Class 2A Buena Vista isn’t just playing up a classification against Steamboat Springs at 7 p.m. today at Gardner Field. The Demons might be playing the best team in Class 3A. That, and the fact that Buena

Vista is having an uncharacteristically down year at just 2-6 overall, and Marken said his team is up against it today. “They’re a really talented football team,” Marken said. “It’s amazing to me watching on film. They are so athletic at every position. They’re a fun

team to watch on film.” Steamboat has been fun to watch, but not to play this season. The Sailors (8-0 overall, 7-0 in the Western Slope League) have looked every bit the part of one of 3A’s elite teams. The Sailors have outscored teams, 333-122, including 21441 in the first half. Add in an ever-improving defense that is plus-13 in turnovers, and right now, it’s tough to find a weakness in Steamboat’s game. But the out-of-league game

has little bearing on either team. Buena Vista isn’t going to make the playoffs, and Steamboat has clinched its berth. To find some relevance, the Sailors need a win for playoff seeding — something that could prove the difference in getting an easier road in the playoffs. Although a loss wouldn’t deter the Steamboat season, coach Aaron Finch said at this point the philosophy — as has been each week — is to get better. See Steamboat, page 37

It’s a sensation that’s motivational and frustrating, Hayden coach Shawn Baumgartner said. His team will travel for a 7 p.m. game today in Kremmling that, at least as far as the play-

PREP FOOTBALL off brackets are concerned, does not matter. Neither Hayden nor West Grand has any hopes of making the postseason, and when the final buzzer sounds and the game ends, so will the 2009 football season for both programs.

Still, Baumgartner said the Tigers (3-5) were bent on going out with a win. “There’s definitely no pressure, but it’s a game we just really want to play well in,” he said. “They’re a team like us that doesn’t have a great record this year, but we know they’ll be up for the game just like we will be.” Hayden has stumbled through

the season since it leapt to a 2-0 start. Most recently, the Tigers lost, 36-7, at home against Meeker. It was the fifth consecutive game in which the team scored one touchdown or less. “It takes consistency and execution. That’s what it really comes down to,” Baumgartner See Hayden, page 37

Buena Vista hopes to slow Steamboat from the beginning of game Steamboat continued from 35 “Buena Vista is always a well-coached team,” Finch said. “Given our experience of the entire season with this group of athletes, they’ve never taken anyone lightly and are always ready to play.” The Demons run a spread option attack, led by running back Dakota Johnson’s 806 yards rushing. Marken said he has a young team with only seven seniors. The injury bug also has visited Buena Vista too much this season. Marken said the key for the Demons would be to not let the Sailors get off to a fast start. If Buena Vista can stretch the game and keep it close, it will compound the pressure Steamboat feels. “We have to keep Steamboat from getting off to a fast start.

Senior celebration The Steamboat Springs High School senior football players and cheerleaders will be recognized before today’s game. The ceremony starts at 6:30 p.m. Seventeen football players and nine cheerleaders will be recognized.

We have to prevent that from happening,” Marken said. “Then the pressure kind of goes to them. If we’re fortunate enough to hang around, there really is no pressure on us at all. Everyone expects Steamboat to beat us like they’ve been beating everybody else.” For Steamboat, it’s continuing to toe the company line. The outlook and formula for winning hasn’t changed this season. If an aggressive Steamboat defense can force long third-

Coach: Last 1 for seniors Hayden continued from 35 said about the sputtering offense. “Last week we could move the ball one play, then the next have a breakdown somewhere. We are still needing to find that consistency.” Hayden will find a similarly downtrodden opponent tonight. West Grand was 2-2 after its first four games but lost four straight, three of those by more than 30 points. The team played closer a week ago but still lost to Rangely, 19-14, and is en route to its third losing season in four years. Still, the Tigers have firsthand experience proving that the Mustangs can rear up and provide a shock. Hayden beat up on West Grand, 47-12, last season in Hayden but took one of its bestever teams into Kremmling two years ago and came away with a loss. In fact, losing at West Grand has become a trend Baumgartner is eager to stop. “I called some of the former

coaches, and we couldn’t figure out the last time a Hayden team has won over there,” Baumgartner said. “We thought we had a really good team (in 2007) and they still found a way to beat us over there. “Whether or not our team is going to the playoffs, it still has a chance to make history.” Although that thought provides plenty of motivation, simply ending the season with a win is still the Tigers’ driving force. “For our seniors, this is the last one, the last chance to go out on a winning note,” Baumgartner said. “This is the one they will remember. And for the underclassmen, this is the one they will have to live with for the next year. If they win, it will springboard them into next season, and that can be really important.”

Since 2003, the Ravens have allowed the fewest yards (270.2) and had the most interceptions (80) at home in the league. Dawkins provides the soul for Denver’s squad, helping transform the Broncos from a hapless unit into one of the league’s top squads in just a season. He plays with a spirited energy, the same kind of pas-

sion he brought to Philadelphia for 13 seasons before signing with Denver last February. “The game is not played any purer than by men like him,” said Lewis, whose team hosts the undefeated Broncos on Sunday. “I enjoy sitting back and watching him play football because of his passion.” Funny, that’s what Dawkins admires about Lewis, as well. “You can count on him year-in and year-out to give everything to the last drop,” Dawkins said.

Burnett delivers for Yankees

New York takes Game 2 against Phillies to tie World Series at 1 game each Mike Fitzpatrick

this one was huge. After losing with their ace, Sabathia, on the mound in Game 1, the Yankees turned to Burnett in a crucial situation. That left plenty of fans nervous — Burnett can be erratic, and he lacks a playoff pedigree. But boy, did he deliver. The hard-throwing Burnett struck out nine — fanning slugger Ryan Howard three times — and walked only two in seven stellar innings. Outpitching a wily Martinez, he allowed four hits, including Matt Stairs’ runscoring single with two outs in the second. Burnett recovered quickly, striking out Pedro Feliz, and was in charge the rest of the way. After Carlos Ruiz’s fifthinning double, he retired his final eight batters and handed the lead directly to closer Mariano Rivera for a six-out save. Exactly what the Yankees were looking for. Burnett signed an $82.5 million, five-year contract with New York as a free agent last winter and went 13-9 with a 4.04 ERA during the regular season, leading the AL with 97 walks. Typically quiet, he began a ritual of pasting teammates in the face with whipped cream pies after walk-off wins. Fans fell in love with the playful tradition, but they were wait-



A.J. Burnett hardly got any attention. He just got the win. Almost an afterthought in his matchup with colorful star Pedro Martinez, Burnett challenged Philadelphia right from the start Thursday night and gave the New York Yankees the confident pitching performance they desperately needed. Throwing first-pitch strikes to his first 11 batters, Burnett overpowered a dangerous Phillies lineup and led New York to a 3-1 victory that tied the World Series at one game apiece. No longer will Burnett be considered the weak link in the Yankees’ rotation between CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte. The right-hander has his first win in four postseason starts — and

ended the series in Game 6. This time, Burnett quieted the Phillies all night. After saying Wednesday that he looked forward to his matchup with Martinez, Burnett was in control the whole way.

Casey Barth kicked a 21-yard field goal on the final play, and North Carolina stopped No. 14 Virginia Tech all night in a 20-17 victory Thursday night. The Tar Heels (5-4, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) got their first conference win after forcing a fumble by Ryan Williams at his own 24 with 2:02 left and turning it into the winning drive. The Hokies (5-3, 3-2), who until losing to No. 11 Georgia Tech 12 days ago were in the national championship picture, lost their second straight. The Tar Heels held Virginia Tech to just 95 rushing yards and limited Williams, the nation’s No. 7 runner with an average of 119 yards, ineffective for most of the game. Tydreke Powell caused Williams to fumble for just the second time this season, and Deunta Williams recovered, setting the Tar Heels up at the Hokies 24. After six carries by

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Ryan Houston got it to the 4, Barth’s second field goal finished off the big upset. T.J. Yates, who was knocked out of the Tar Heels 20-17 loss to the Hokies last season, finished 18-for-28 for just 131 yards, but made all the big throws his team needed. He hit Jheranie Boyd from 13 yards in the first half for the game’s first points, and Greg Little from 15 yards as the Tar Heels answered immediately after the Hokies tied it. Yates did make one big mistake, throwing a dump pass that Rashad Carmichael intercepted at the North Carolina 11, setting up the second of Tyrod Taylor’s two touchdown runs. That gave the Hokies a 17-14 lead with 11:51 left, but Yates engineered a 16-play, 78-yard drive to a tying field goal and then the defense, fittingly, made a big play to get the win. The Hokies finished with just 256 yards and 11 first downs.

Anthony scores 41 in win

Nuggets take out the Trail Blazers in Portland Anne M. Peterson




Carmelo Anthony scored 19 of his 41 points in the fourth quarter, and the Denver Nuggets were helped by Portland’s trouble at the freethrow line for a 97-94 victory Thursday night. Greg Oden Thursday’s game: missed a pair Nuggets 97 of free throws Trail Blazers with 4.6 seconds left, squander94 ing a chance for Portland to go ahead. Anthony hit a jumper with 4:26 left to tie it at 85, then

added another to give the Nuggets their first lead since the second quarter. It stayed close with the teams trading free throws. But Portland started to have trouble at the line, and Nene hooked a shot and Denver led, 95-91. Brandon Roy’s bank shot narrowed it again, but LaMarcus Aldridge continued the Blazers’ free-throw woes by making just one of two. After Oden’s misses, Anthony made a pair and Roy missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer for the final margin. Roy finished with 33 points

for the Blazers. The game was slowed considerably by fouls. Combined, the teams attempted 90 free throws. Both teams had 54 wins last season, but the Nuggets edged the Blazers out of the Northwest Division title. Denver went to the Western Conference finals, where the team fell, 4-2, to the eventual NBA champion Lakers, while Portland fell in six games to the Houston Rockets in the first round of the playoffs. The Nuggets were playing the second of a back-toback. Denver opened at home Wednesday night with a 114105 victory against the Jazz.

Volleyball continued from 35 outcome of the championship match. Hayden and Socoro enter the tournament with confidence. The Rams have taken pride in the fact that they’re coming off their most successful season in years. “Since I’ve been here, this is the first time we haven’t had to play in the pigtail (play-in) game,” Soroco coach Kim Reeves said. “To some people, sixth in the league might not seem so great, but to us, it’s wonderful. It’s a great feeling for the girls.” It’s more than that, though. In rolling to that sixth-place finish, Soroco went right over two of the three other teams in its pool. The Rams lost to Rangely in three games but knocked off Meeker and Paonia. “That’s a big motivator and a

big confidence booster,” Reeves said. “This group has a drive where they feel like they can make it past districts if they go out and play their best. “I definitely don’t think they’ve accomplished everything they want to accomplish yet.” Hayden, meanwhile, is convinced that it’s not entirely the same team that stumbled through the regular season. The Tigers were 0-5 before winning their first match, but they beat Soroco in three games last week. A three-game victory Tuesday against Plateau Valley earned the squad a bid to the tournament. Two in a row isn’t much, but Johnson said it’s evidence of the progress he has been looking for from a young team. “We are peaking at the right time,” he said. “We are really

starting to come together as a team, to limit our mistakes and play with our hearts. That’s what’s been missing at times this season, but we are really excited right now.” Despite taking just two league matches, Hayden doesn’t expect to catch anyone by surprise. Hayden opens up against top-seeded Vail Christian and then will face West Grand and Vail Mountain. “They all know we have the talent,” Johnson said. “It’s been about putting it together. We’ve said all season it’s about peaking at the right time and playing best at districts. “I don’t think anyone will take us lightly, but if they do, it will be their mistake.” — To reach Joel Reichenberger, call 871-4253 or e-mail

Overboard ® Chip Dunham

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2009 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Gavin Rossdale, 44; Harry Hamlin, 58; Henry Winkler, 64; Grace Slick, 70 Happy Birthday: This is a great time to expand your mind, your circle of friends or to choose your life destination. There is new ground to cover and lots to incorporate into your lifestyle. This year, invest in yourself and your future. Reviewing past experience and its lessons will enable you to move forward and accomplish longtime goals. Your numbers are 3, 7, 16, 24, 28, 33, 42 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Challenge yourself physically and you will alleviate stress and tension due to other people's actions, comments and general complaints. Focus on the people you love. A romantic opportunity will arise that can change the course of your life.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't be fooled by someone's reluctance to speak up. There will be trouble brewing that must be talked about before things can be resolved. Ignoring the problem will only make matters escalate. Stay calm. ★★★ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You have to set your mind on things that count and that you can actually do something about. A relationship you have will improve your status. Take an active role in a cause you believe in. ★★★★ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Do what needs to be done and move on. You have to find ways to enhance your own emotional attitude. Consider doing something you enjoy. Whatever you do, put your needs first for a change. ★★ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If something is bothering you, get it out in the open instead of pouting and ruining your whole day. Not everyone is going to want to do things your way or join in your plans but that doesn't mean you should change your direction midstream. ★★★★★ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Look to your past and you will realize that perhaps you are making a similar mistake. Don't let your emotional insecurity cause you to make changes you will live to regret. A connection you make through your work may confuse you. ★★★

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't let things get you down when you have so much to look forward to. A little fun and entertainment will lift your spirits and help you connect with people who will offer you plenty to think about. Love is on the rise and an unusual job will interest you. ★★★ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Go after your goals. Now is not the time to stop, no matter what others are telling you. Anyone acting negatively is probably threatened by your intentions. Believe in yourself. ★★★★★ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't stir things up at home. Good fortune is with you but that doesn't mean you should gamble. Consider collecting an old debt or looking into an unfinished claim you made or even getting involved in a safe investment. ★★ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will be restricted from doing some of the things you had planned if you don't stick to the rules. Take precautions and make sure that everyone you are dealing with is on the same page. A change of plans may be necessary. ★★★★ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Someone may not be forthcoming about feelings or what is wanted in return for something you have requested. Don't take anything for granted. Don't make donations or contributions you cannot afford.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You'll find it difficult to express your personal needs. Once you see the implications that can arise from your actions, you will have a better idea what's required of you. Avoid secrets -- they will only lead to confusion and misunderstandings. ★★★ Birthday Baby: You have pizzazz and charisma that draws people to your side. You are giving, supportive and quick to find solutions. You are emotional. 2009 UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Investigator testifies in Anna Nicole Smith case Linda Deutsch



A nanny who worked for Anna Nicole Smith told an investigator the Playboy model’s boyfriend and psychiatrist persuaded her to take drugs that left her sleeping for as long as three days, the investigator testified Thursday. Department of Justice investigator Danny Santiago read portions of his interview with nanny Nadine Alexie during a preliminary hearing. The excerpts had been selected from a thick transcript by Superior Court Judge Robert J. Perry, who said he had tried to excise the more inflammatory sections of the multi-hour interview on Sept. 29 to 30 in the Bahamas. Still, Santiago conveyed a graphic story in which the nanny claimed Smith was provided drugs by her boyfriend Howard K. Stern and her psychiatrist Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, even when Smith said she didn’t want them. The nanny was first asked if Smith was taking too many medications. “Yes, she was,” Alexie answered, according to the transcript. “Whenever she finished

taking these things they gave to her, she would be knocked out for a couple of days.” Alexie said Smith sometimes resisted taking the medications, but Stern was convincing and would change her mind. Alexie said Stern would say, “You have to take your medicine or you’ll start crying and you’ll feel bad.” Eroshevich, Stern and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor are charged with conspiring to illegally provide controlled substances to Smith, who died of an accidental drug overdose in 2007. The allegations include giving drugs to an addict. All three have pleaded not guilty. They are not charged in her death. The ongoing hearing will determine whether the defendants will stand trial. Judge Perry said he would take home and watch a 45-minute videotape that prosecutors said shows Smith under the influence of drugs given to her by Stern. Perry intends to rule today about whether the video will be admitted as evidence. “I think this is very relevant evidence to the criminality of Mr. Stern,” prosecutor Renee Rose said.

‘Slumdog’ kids miss school Filmmakers say truancy could cost actors their stipends Erika Kinetz



The slum kid stars of “Slumdog Millionaire” want a lot of things in life — new houses, a car, trips to London and Paris — but they aren’t too interested in school. Ten-year-old Rubina Ali has missed nearly 75 percent of her classes, and her co-star hasn’t done much better — truancy that filmmakers say will jeopardize their trust funds and monthly stipends if it continues. Their parents blame the absences on deaths in the family or other misfortunes, including the demolition of Rubina’s shanty by city authorities earlier this year, and have promised to do better. But the filmmakers say the children are being lured away by endorsement deals, television appearances and other opportunities to cash in on their celebrity — at the risk of losing the money set aside for them once they graduate. “Our love got a little bit tougher today,” “Slumdog” producer Christian Colson said Thursday. “We understand there are

opportunities for both kids — and for the parents of both children — to cash in, in the short term, on their celebrity. We don’t have a problem with that. But if they want to benefit from the trust, they have to get those attendance rates up.” Beneath the debate about school is a deeper tug-of-war between the impoverished families’ urge for as much short-term gain as possible and the filmmakers’ desire to endow the children with a secure future. Rubina and 11-year-old Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail both grew up in one of Mumbai’s most wretched slums. They shot to fame after starring in the rags-to-riches blockbuster, which won eight Oscars. Rubina was cast as the young Latika, who grows up to become the hero’s love interest, and Azhar plays his brother, Salim. After filming ended, director Danny Boyle and Colson got the pair placed in a Mumbai school that helps disadvantaged children. But these days, Azhar is showing up to class just 37 percent of the time, and Rubina’s attendance is only 27 percent, said Noshir Dadrawala, an administrator

of the trust. “It’s pathetic,” said Dadrawala, adding that a flurry of awards ceremonies, festivals and fashion shows that have taken the kids to Paris, Madras and elsewhere are detracting from their studies. These have included Rubina’s Paris trip to promote a book about her life, “Slumgirl Dreaming: My Journey to the Stars,” as well as a tea party at Westminster in London, a dance number on a Hong Kong TV show and, of course, a trip to Los Angeles for the Oscars. “They are constantly going ... That’s fine, but go over the weekend, not at the sacrifice of school,” Dadrawala said. The parents were told Thursday that if the children do not get their attendance above 70 percent they would lose their monthly $120 stipend. And if the kids fail to graduate, they will forfeit the lump sum payment set aside to help them get a start in life, Dadrawala said. The filmmakers have declined to reveal the amount of the trust for fear of exposing the families to exploitation. In addition, both families are covered by medical insurance, which the trust finalized Thursday.

He was treated and sent home, where he went to sleep in his bedroom, Stewart said. Stewart said she checked on her son every couple of hours. Early Monday afternoon, she found him unresponsive in his bed, called 911 and performed CPR while she waited for an ambulance. Shortly after arriving at Yampa Valley Medical Center, Stewart was told her son had died.
