Cuts would affect schools Gov. Ritter proposes $260M reduction in K-12 funding next year Jack Weinstein PILOT & TODAY

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

It’s what they feared and expected but hoped wouldn’t happen. Gov. Bill Ritter announced this month the possibility of cutting $260 million from public K-12 funding in his proposed 2010-11 budget. One local school district official said if the cut comes to fruition, it

will be “devastating.” In a news release, Ritter asked everyone to “share in the sacrifice.” He said next year’s budget is “our most challenging yet,” despite closing unprecedented shortfalls in the past year. “I’m continuing to make tough choices from very limited options — even while the demand for many services is skyrocketing,” Ritter said. The $260 million proposed K-12 cut, or 6.1 percent of the

funding provided to the state’s schools, significantly would affect Routt County school districts, the officials said. According to data from the Colorado Department of Education, the county school districts’ share of the cuts would be $980,065 for Steamboat Springs, $230,065 for Hayden and $221,576 for South Routt. “That’s devastating,” Steam­ boat Superintendent Shalee Cunningham said. “That will

definitely mean prioritizing programs, which frankly we’ll have to do in next year’s budget anyway.” Hayden Superintendent Greg Rockhold said the cut “would severely hamper us in completing our task as educators.” South Routt Superinten­ dent Scott Mader called the proposed cut “bad news” but Matt Stensland/file photo said there was a silver lining Gov. Bill Ritter announced last week the possibility of cutting $260 million from public K-12 funding in his proposed 2010-11 budget. The Steamboat Springs School District stands to lose $980,065.

year because of the economy,” Haskins said. “I think everybody pretty much figured that would happen.” The DOW also offered fewer tags this year as some elk populations started to fall into the target range. “We’re transitioning from a mode where we were trying to harvest a lot of elk, especially cow elk, to a mode where we’re

The hundreds of people who lined the main street of a small Indiana city Saturday fell solemnly silent as a white hearse passed by on its way to the church. Mourners streamed into a Wisconsin gymnasium to remember a soldier who once promised to take down Osama bin Laden. Across the country, many stood before several flag-draped coffins during funeral services for several of the 13 victims of the Nov. 5 shootings in Fort Hood, Texas. In Plymouth, Ind., Sheila Ellabarger had placed two foothigh American flags in the grass where she watched the procession for Army Staff Sgt. Justin DeCrow. She said her children went to school with DeCrow and his wife — his high school sweetheart — and she knew other members of his family. “He was killed by a terrorist in my mind, but he was still killed in the line of duty. We owe him a debt of gratitude, him and his family and the other soldiers. We owe them our lives, our freedom,” Ellabarger said. During services in Norman, Okla., snapshots from U.S. Army Spc. Jason Dean Hunt’s recent wedding were projected near his casket. The 22-year-old was described as a loving husband and family man, as well as a soldier who left a legacy of selflessness and service. “We may never find out the reason for what occurred on that fateful day at Fort Hood, Texas,” said Ross Ridge, the deputy commanding general at Fort Sill, Okla. “The military community are all grieving here today over the loss of this dedicated soldier.” The high school gymnasium in Kiel, Wis., was filled Saturday for Staff Sgt. Amy Krueger’s funeral. A visitation had been held there

t the start of the first Yampa Valley Special Olympics Bowling Tournament, Jay Greenhill was hoping to get the sort of score he racks up on a good day. For Greenhill, a Steamboat Springs Story by resident Margaret Hair and client at Horizons Specialized Services, that would be between 115 and 125. As competition started at Snow Bowl on Saturday afternoon, Greenhill was on track to do just that. Then he got a turkey — three strikes in a row — and the family fan club behind him erupted. “I think my game’s getting better and better every time,” Greenhill said before he started bowling. This is his first year participating in a fall bowling program sponsored by Knights of Columbus council 4462. “He’s so excited; he’s been

own, and he’ll probably continue to do it year after year after year, as long as they’ll have him.” Jay Greenhill had the top score in his lane during the first game of the day, finishing with a 133.

He and 35 other athletes from Routt and Moffat counties were signed up to bowl in lanes with three to five players at the tournament, which was the first of its kind for the bowling program. Now in its 16th year, the

program in the past has featured a regional tournament in New Castle and an overnight trip to a statewide competition in Denver. “We decided this year we could See Bowling, page 8A

t’s fitting that the two-year anniversary of the local Cartridge World comes on America Recycles Day. Keith Zimmer, who owns the Central Park Plaza store with his wife, Patty, said last week that the Story by store’s efforts Mike Lawrence to refill local printer and toner cartridges are adding up. “We’ve calculated that we’ve saved 3 1/2 tons of plastic from going into the landfill,” he said. The store opened two years ago today next to Village Inn. Keith Zimmer said they work with about 230 businesses across Northwest Colorado — including some in Craig and Kremmling with the majority in Steamboat Springs — with the goal of helping businesses reduce their expenses and create less trash. And, of course, the goal of turning a profit. “Instead of buying a new cartridge, you bring a cartridge in to us and we refill it,” Keith Zimmer said, adding that they also sell refurbished used cartridges. “Our products are anywhere from 30 to 40 percent less than buying a new cartridge.” The local Cartridge World sells new cartridges, as well. Keith Zimmer pulled an HP 21 cartridge off the rack Tuesday and said it retails for $15. “We sell them for $9.99,” he said. “And it’s pretty much across the board that same ratio.” But Keith Zimmer said he hasn’t had any backlash from other local cartridge-sellers. “I send people over to Staples all the time — in a way, it’s two very different products,” he said. “Our major focus is not selling new cartridges. It’s re-manufacturing old ones.” That re-manufacturing occurs in the store’s back area, which occupies the majority of the Zimmers’ space behind a relatively small public retail section. The back of the store includes an office desk, shelves atop shelves filled with rainbows of ink bottles, and a room entered through heavy dust curtains that contains what Keith Zimmer calls “the black hole” — a filtration system used to clean out toner dust and refurbish cartridges. The manufacturing area bears all the signs of constant, organized production, indicating that two years into the business, the Zimmers have found their niche. The Zimmers moved to Steamboat about 10 years ago, while still owning clothing and gift shops in Red Lodge, Mont. The ownership required

frequent trips north, Keith Zimmer said. “We were going back and forth until I opened this store,” he said. “We were a customer at one of these in Montana, and we realized what a great business model it was.”

Hoping to grow It’s a model they’re trying to expand in the region. Keith Zimmer said he and Patty estimate that they refill only 15 to 20 percent of the cartridges at businesses in Steamboat Springs. “We’re just scratching the surface,” he said. Their customers include Steamboat Ski and Resort

Corp., this newspaper and many more. The Zimmers also run a Cartridge World recycling program at schools and nonprofit groups including Hayden High School, South Routt schools, Partners in Routt County and the Boys & Girls Club of Craig. At Steamboat Springs Middle School, student mentor Katie Neiert is continuing a program that collects cartridges from parents and returns them to Cartridge World, where the Zimmers pay for each cartridge they receive.

“The money goes to help fund our Culture Club,” Neiert said. “It’s the easiest fundraiser in the world.” The Culture Club is an after-school program that introduces students to different cultures from around the world. Last week, for example, Neiert’s office contained a pile of Australian didgeridoos made from heavy plastic pipes. The school’s Green Team includes about 40 students and also benefits from the cartridge recycling program, Neiert said. Keith Zimmer said the reces-

sion has had a mix of impacts on his business. Some customers are doing less business and thus needing fewer cartridge refills, he said, but others are drawn to Cartridge World to save money in tough times. Keith Zimmer said he’s not planning any huge changes to the business model down the road — his main goal is to add more volume, he said. “It’s grown, but not as fast as I thought it would,” he said about the business. “But I’m pleased with it — it’s been two years, and we’re still here.”

Tough times mean shared sacrifice

our view

Taxpayers deserve better

Bill Ritter Jr.

T

axpayers of Northwest Colorado deserve a clear and honest explanation for why our regional Board of Cooperative Educational Services overspent last year’s budget, withheld federal funding from districts and increased what it said districts would owe in 200910. Similarly, immediate action at issue must be taken to ensure proper BOCES financial woes financial oversight and accountability for an organization that handles millions of dollars in our view education funding each year while providing essential special Taxpayers education services to more than deserve 600 regional K-12 students. answers, Northwest Colorado followed by BOCES member districts and a thorough the Colorado Department of examination Education have spent the past several months examining our of the BOCES regional organization, and there operational are still as many questions as structure. answers. But what’s glaringly clear is that poor oversight led to unacceptable budget deficits, a questionable allocation of federal stimulus dollars and concerns about BOCES’ ability to provide necessary services for Northwest Colorado students with special needs. Here’s what we do know: ■ The Northwest Colorado Board of Cooperative Educational Services overspent its 2008-09 budget by more than $300,000 but didn’t inform its member districts about the deficit until after the 2008-09 school year had ended. ■ In addition to overspending its 2008-09 budget, BOCES officials informed member districts that they were under-assessed for 2009-10 school year services. According to BOCES, member districts needed to provide $481,000 more than what they were told in May, when the districts were completing and approving preliminary 2009-10 budgets. ■ The school districts said they didn’t have the money to pay for the additional 2008-09 and 200910 assessments and instead requested that BOCES cut its budget to make up for the revenue shortfall. ■ BOCES owed its member districts $777,000 in federal title program funding. BOCES was supposed to pass the funding on to its member districts but instead used it to pay for its own operational expenses. Because BOCES failed to properly disburse that money, the state Department of Education has taken away its ability to receive those funds in the 2009-10 school year. ■ A special audit of BOCES is under way. The draft results were released Thursday, but the auditor advised that the audit was a “moving target.” ■ BOCES has sought permission to use federal stimulus dollars to help make up its 2008-09 budget year deficit. Jane Toothaker, the longtime executive director of BOCES, says the poor accounting was the result of her receiving bad information from a previous financial director who has since been replaced. She insists there was no criminal or fraudulent activity that led to overspending and poor accounting. Regardless, the financial condition and management of the organization has been unacceptable. To their credit, the superintendents of BOCES member districts have taken a lead role in investigating the organization’s financial and organizational problems. Going forward, the superintendents say they will review the organization’s monthly financial statements, a much-needed practice that was not previously in place. Additionally, Steamboat Springs School District Superintendent Shalee Cunningham says her district will present in March a list of services it will provide itself in coming years instead of contracting for those services with BOCES. The concept of boards of cooperative educational services is that by pooling resources, smaller, rural school districts can better provide required special education programming for their students. But the BOCES system has its faults. There’s little accountability at the state and federal levels, even though BOCES organizations tend to be responsible for multimillion-dollar annual budgets and are on the receiving end of significant federal grants. The only real accountability is with BOCES boards of directors, groups that tend to meet sporadically and are made up of member district representatives. As we’ve seen with BOCES, that structure is inadequate for ensuring sound fiscal management of taxpayer dollars. We don’t know what the end result of the internal inquiries will be, but we do know this: BOCES structures must change and that might necessitate intervention at the state level. Our own state legislators — Sen. Al White, R-Hayden, and Rep. Randy Baumgardner, R-Hot Sulphur Springs — should be at the forefront of an effort to investigate the statewide BOCES structure and recommend changes that will all but guarantee responsible oversight of education funding and essential special education services. Students, families and taxpayers deserve no less.

letters to the editor Health care reform Three weeks ago, 35 to 40 people gathered at Off the Beaten Path Bookstore for a conversation about health care reform. I want to thank all who participated for frank, thoughtful, respectful conversation, and to apologize to the many people who came but could not find a seat or were unable to hear. I also want to thank Sue Birch, Carol Milligan, Brian Harrington, Todd Hagenbuch and Jay Fetcher for their informed perspectives as members of the panel. Today, I want to break from the spirit of impartiality in which I tried to moderate the fireside chat and offer some comments about the pending health care reform legislation. In the three short weeks since our conversation, the House has passed its bill, and the Senate is poised to reconcile bills that have emerged from its two committees and begin its debate. Decision time is near. There is much to like in these bills. They provide for nearly universal health insurance. They eliminate the most egregious health insurance practices: denial of coverage for pre-existing illness and rescission of coverage. They limit annual out-of-pocket expenses, eliminate annual and lifetime limitations on coverage and guarantee portability of insurance. They eliminate insurance rating based on gender and illness. Through a variety of approaches, they seek to reduce administrative costs. Still, there is much to be concerned about. It is encouraging that some of the bills provide incentives for reducing liability costs but discouraging that none tackles tort reform head-on. It is not clear to me that these bills will increase competition among health insurance providers, a critical component of cost reduction. The bills rely on several laudable but largely unproven methods for achieving cost savings: accountable care organizations to provide better coordinated care and various payment schemes with incentives based on quality outcomes. Much of the discourse in the coming weeks will be about the “public option.” We should remember that the purpose of the public option is to provide insurance primarily for those who do or will not have employer-provided insurance — estimates are that only 5 million to 10 million citizens will choose

it — and to create competition in an insurance market where there is none today. The co-operative alternative will be expensive to deploy and historically has been unable to attract sufficient participation to be an effective market competitor. In my view, the public option is the preferred vehicle for achieving market competition — a component of cost containment — but it should not be allowed to defeat overall reform. On balance, we ought to take these reforms if we can get them. Universal coverage with fewer of the fiendish, inequitable and unfair insurance practices will go a ways toward improving our health care system. But we need to know that delivering lower cost and better health outcomes will take many years, innovation in the methods of delivery and kinds of health care, and a sustained effort by all those with a stake: providers, payers, insurers and, of course, all of us.

Lock in standards The Let’s Vote group deserves our respect for standing up personally for what they believe. The principle exercised in the successful petition for a public vote on the Steamboat 700 annexation is a cornerstone of our basic rights. The forthcoming debate should be respectful and civil. Those of you who scold opponents of Steamboat 700 for unwittingly jeopardizing attainable housing in Steamboat Springs need to pay closer attention. I agree with you that such attainable (free-market) housing would be the main point of annexing, but there may be little or no attainability in Steamboat 700. By your own standard, it could be that you, too, might choose to vote against Steamboat 700. The Oct. 13 draft of the annexation agreement gave you fair warning. Steamboat 700 has promised many times that part of their freemarket product will bear prices that match up with our workers’ financial capabilities. They’ve said this is a completely natural market for their product. Yet when pressed to put that in writing (for the least expensive 30 percent of their 1,600 free-market units) in the Oct. 13 draft, the Steamboat

700 promise evaporated and became instead: We will offer attainable prices on those homes for only 120 days. How can Steamboat 700 say our work force is their natural market and at the same time limit our workers’ buying opportunity to 120 days? Consider those words from Steamboat 700 as fair warning. Down the road, we could be shocked by how few of our workers are able to afford free-market homes within this annexation. On Oct. 13, City Council correctly rejected that 120-day time frame as it adopted the annexation agreement. But the actual “attainability program” that will deliver the annexation’s attainability promise is yet to be written. This is one unfortunate result of annexing with a deadline, as we did. Some time limit on attainable prices, or other obstacles, may return in the writing of the program, making work force attainability just an illusion. If it is your hope that our local work force will find homes in this annexation, you will have a pressing interest in that program’s promise. It follows that the city’s work on this annexation is incomplete. I urge City Council to have that attainability program written before the Steamboat 700 ballot occurs. Otherwise, voters cannot know whether Steamboat 700 will deliver what many of us hope for — homes for our workers.

We always respond After the first couple, they came home by foot. After the next few, it was by foot and train and maybe by horse. Then, they came home by train, mostly. And for a while, it was by boat and train. Now it is almost totally by plane. It has been millions, literally, of Americans who have returned from war. Most have survived. Many have not. Physical, emotional and mental tolls have been taken. And then there are the many — way too many — that have given that “last full measure,” a grand term that euphemizes the sacrifice. But because those sacrifices have been made, we are a people that much of the world looks to in time of See Letters, page 5A

When Lt. Gov. Barbara O’Brien and I first took office in January 2007, we made education our top priority. We vowed to reduce the dropout rate, close achievement gaps and increase the number of in-state students who earn a college degree. During the past three years, we’ve made great progress. Working together with our partners in Ritter the legislature and in the P-12 and highereducation communities, we’ve made Colorado a national leader in studentcentered reforms. We’re getting more kids into preschool. We expanded full-day kindergarten, and we’re helping more students than ever plan for college. Making progress in education is never easy, even in good times. Families and businesses across Colorado are tightening their belts. Working with the legislature, I’ve closed shortfalls of $2 billion to keep the state budget balanced. We’re all making tough choices. On Tuesday, I presented my proposed fiscal year 2010-11 budget to the legislature. We had to close a $1 billion shortfall to balance this budget, continuing the cost-cutting and streamlining that have been under way for more than a year. This new budget includes two things we haven’t had to do before — reducing some school funding and suspending some special tax exemptions. Until now, we’ve been able to fully protect school funding, which, after nearly a decade of steady growth, now makes up almost half of the state’s General Fund budget. But this is a new economic reality, and our list of budget-cutting options is growing shorter. This proposal requires a 4.6 percent reduction to total program funding for K-12 and adjustments, many temporary, to 13 of 100 tax credits and exemptions. As a father of four and husband of a former teacher, I know the importance of a quality education for our kids. Investing in the education of our children is the key not just to their own future, but to Colorado’s long-term economic strength. That is a guiding principle of my administration. With this new budget, I’m asking everyone to sacrifice. From schools to businesses to state workers — everyone must help. This proposal allows us to protect the safety net for those who are living on the margins, at a time when the demand for services continues to skyrocket. Like families and businesses in every corner of the state, we have to live within our budget. But our commitment, our goals and our strategies for helping families, for creating the best schools in the country and for keeping our small businesses competitive remain as ambitious as ever.

When the children raised their flags in unison, everyone in the room felt uplifted. When they placed their hands over their hearts during the chorus of “We Celebrate America,” all of us sensed a unity of spirit stronger than any political division. In that auditorium on Veterans Day 2009, we knew that in spite of all our differences, we are Americans. Thank you, fifth-graders, for an inspiring and memorable performance. You made this day what it was meant to be. You already have become a gift to this community. Because of you, the future looks brighter. Thank you, veterans. We can’t say it too many times.

way they came in so late in the season and completed Phase I before much snow arrived. The design and workmanship quality are excellent. There are so many features both familiar and innovative, and every inch of concrete is rideable. Skaters will be finding new lines and new challenges almost endlessly. As for the time of year the construction occurred, it

is frustrating for skaters to have winter close the door without at least a few test rides. However, if it had been put off until next season, it would be mid-summer before it would be at this point of completion.

Depression is a physical problem, not a Weakness in Character Clinical depression is caused by brain chemistry changes in the brain that slow down thinking and the ability to problem solve life's difficulties. It can be more painful than a broken leg. In most cases it is very treatable and people do not have to live with this invisible pain. Because depression is often misunderstood as a personal weakness, people are ashamed to get help. As in any disease, depression can get worse if it goes untreated. Learn how to break the stigma about getting treated for depression as well as the physiology of depression and treatment options.

Sharon Kay Wiggins

Louis William Balvanz

1947-2009

Sharon Kay Wiggins, 62, of La Grange and formerly of Steamboat Springs, passed away Nov. 6 at her home. Sharon was born Sept. 16, 1947, to Albert Lee and Myra Ann Readon Rich in Nowata, Okla. She was a high school graduate and bookkeeper for the family business. Sharon enjoyed fishing saltwater and freshwater. Art and reading also were favorite pastimes. Singing was a part of her life that she truly loved. Sharon is survived by her husband, Bryan Wiggins, of La Grange; sons Wade Wheatley and wife, Tammy, of New Ulm, Minn., and Will Wiggins, of Steamboat; one daughter, Wendee Bradshaw, of Florida; grandchildren

1933-2009

Louis William Balvanz, 76, of the Bartels Lutheran Retirement Community and formerly of Plainfield, Iowa, died of natural causes Nov. 11 at the Bartels Lutheran Home in Waverly. Louie was born Sept. 4, 1933, in Alden, Iowa, the son of Martin C. and Tillie M. (Aswegan) Balvanz. Louie attended school in Eldora, Iowa, and then Steamboat Rock Jefferson No. 6 country school, near Allison. The family later moved to a farm near Shell Rock. In 1947, the family moved to a farm near New Hartford, where Louie finished his schooling. After his schooling, he helped his parents on the farm. In 1949, the family moved to a farm in Plainfield, where he met his future wife, Alice Westervelt. In 1954, Louis entered the U.S. Army during the Korean conflict.

Reid Wheatley and Olivia Wheatley, of New Ulm, and Dailey Bradshaw, Mason Bradshaw Wiggins and Sydnee Bradshaw, all of Florida; sisters Karen Taylor and husband Wayne, of Conroe, Texas, and Kathy Ragusa and husband Pete, of Orange, Texas; along with numerous nieces and nephews. A memorial service was held Nov. 10 at the Fayette Memorial Funeral Home Chapel in La Grange. Memorial contributions may be made to the charity of one’s choice.

Why Google when you can ...

He was honorably discharged in 1956 and returned home. On March 18, 1956, Louie was united in marriage to Alice J. Balvanz Westervelt at the Plainfield United Methodist Church, and the couple lived on a farm one half mile west of Horton. One winter, Louie worked for the Rath Packing Co. and during the summer drove Redi-Mix Truck in Waverly. In 1960, Louie went to work for John Deere Co. In 1963, the family moved to a farm near Horton where he farmed for the next three years. Louie then stopped farming, but he continued to work at John Deere, and the family moved to their acreage three miles north of Bremer where they lived for the next 33 years.

Louie retired from John Deere in 1993, and in 1998 the couple moved into Plainfield. In May of 2002, Louie became a resident of the Bartels Lutheran Retirement Community in Waverly. Alice died Feb. 15, 2009. Louie was a member of the Methodist Church in Plainfield where he was active with several committees throughout the years. He was a member of the Tyrell Masonic Lodge and the El Kahir Temple Shrine where he was active as a shrine clown since the 1970s. Louie enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping and spending time with his grandkids. Louie is survived by one daughter, Tricia Toussaint, of Fort Lupton; four sons, Cliff (Teresa) Balvanz, of Plainfield, Elmer (Deb) Balvanz, of Steamboat Springs, Clyde Balvanz, of Plainfield, and Lynn (Darlene) Balvanz, of

Plainfield; 13 grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; one brother, Alvin Balvanz, of Missouri; and a sister-in-law, Jean Balvanz, of Shell Rock. He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Alice; and a brother, Ernest Balvanz. Funeral services were held Nov. 14 at the Plainfield United Methodist Church with Pastor Dennis Burns officiating. Burial was in the Willow Lawn Cemetery in Plainfield, with military rites conducted by the American Legion Post No. 176 of Waverly. Visitation was held Nov. 13 at the Kaiser-Corson Funeral Home in Waverly, with a Masonic service by the Tyrrell Masonic Lodge No. 116 A.F. & A.M. of Waverly. Memorials may be directed to the family or Cedar Valley Hospice. Online condolences for Louie may be left at www. kaisercorson.com.

Longtime Steamboat Springs resident Raymond Gray died Nov. 8, 2009, culminating a wonderful life of more than 92 years. Born May 25, 1917, in Gothenburg, Neb., Raymond was the oldest of four children belonging to John and Sena (Koster) Gray. Raised on a dryland farm, he learned early the importance of strong family, hard work and thrift. His father died when Raymond was 10 years old, and his mother remarried John Baalhorn. Two more children were added to the family. In 1939, the family moved to Northwest Colorado to escape the depression-stricken Dust Bowl. Settling into the lower Elk River Valley west of Steamboat, they found green meadows dotted with haystacks, grain fields ripening in the sunlight and cattle grazing the hillsides. It was the begin-

ning of a love affair with the Yampa Valley. In 1946, Raymond purchased ranch property along the Elk River. Gray In 1949, he married Alice Paine. Together they began rebuilding the old farmstead, increasing the cow/calf, hay and grain operations, and purchasing additional ranchland. They had one daughter, Marsha, born in 1953. Alice was an active part of the ranch and the Steamboat community until her death in 1974. Raymond married Doris Christie in 1975, a loving relationship that lasted 33 years, until Raymond’s death. Raymond believed in giving back to the community and was active with the United Methodist Church

of Steamboat, Routt County Farmers Union, Routt County Democrats and Routt County Cattlemen. He served on many boards including Steamboat Springs School Board, Yampa Valley Co-op, Routt County Soil Conservation, Farmers Home Administration and the Routt County Airport Board. He was a charter member of the Elk River Grazing Association, serving as president of the group during the entire tenure of the venture. Raymond never was shy about expressing his opinion of current regional events and often wrote letters to the editor of the Steamboat Pilot & Today. Those who knew Raymond will remember him for his honesty, his kindness to animals and people and his sense of humor. He enjoyed the ranching lifestyle and always was grateful for the opportunities life afforded him.

Raymond is survived and will be missed by his wife, Doris; daughter and sonin-law Marsha and John Daughenbaugh; granddaughter and husband Adonna and Troy Allen; grandson Nate Daughenbaugh; great-grandchildren Leah and Levi Allen; brother and wife Jack and Dorothy Gray; sister and husband Bernice and Bob Slaight; many nieces and nephews and many more good neighbors and friends. A celebration of Raymond’s life was held Nov. 14 at the United Methodist Church. His family acknowledged their great respect for the man who taught them to love the environment and agriculture of the Elk River Valley. Memorial donations may be made in Raymond’s name to the United Methodist Church of Steamboat, P.O. Box 773748, Steamboat Springs, CO 80477.

VAIL

The suspect in a fatal Colorado bar shooting once begged authorities to return his guns after he pleaded guilty to illegal discharge of a firearm. Richard Moreau wrote a judge in 2005 that firing the gun was a “stupid, unfortunate mistake.” Moreau said in the letter that it had been the first time he had a loaded gun in his house and promised that it would never happen again. “I thank the Lord every day that this didn’t result in injury or death,” Moreau wrote. It’s unclear whether Moreau got his guns back, and a police report of the incident was not immediately available. Prosecutors are considering filing a first-degree murder charge against Moreau for the death of 70-year-old Gary Bruce Kitching last weekend at the Sandbar Sports Grill in Vail. Three others in the bar were wounded. Witnesses told police the shootings happened after

Moreau was escorted out of the bar because of an altercation. Moreau is being held without bail. Police say in an affidavit released this week that Moreau told investigators after the shooting that he thought he “was in a lot of trouble” and probably headed to a mental institution or jail. Police also say Moreau told investigators he had a half of bottle of whiskey the day of the shooting and three drinks at the bar. Moreau said he is a New Hampshire native who moved to Vail in 1970 and skis more than 150 days a year. He also told the Vail Daily in an interview two years ago that he was taking medication for post-traumatic stress disorder attributed to serving two tours of duty in Vietnam in the late 1960s. Moreau has said he was an Army Ranger but a group that researches veterans’ military records is questioning Moreau’s claims. Mary Schantag, a POW Network researcher, said Moreau is listed as a radio teletype operator, not an Army Ranger, in the group’s database.

trying to smooth that out,” he said. Fewer deer tags also were issued this year, he said, because the deer populations suffered in the winter of 2007-08 and have not fully rebounded. “Some of the fact that there are fewer hunters on the ground is intentional,” DOW spokesman Randy Hampton said. Hampton and Haskins also offered several other reasons for a decrease in hunters this year, including warmer weather and the poor economy discouraging out-of-state hunters.

Countywide impacts The decrease in hunters is affecting businesses across Routt County. In Oak Creek, Colorado Bar owner J Elliott said business was down about 25 percent compared with last

year. He said he attributes about half of that decrease to a decline in hunters in Oak Creek this year. “The tourism was down in the summer, and it’s pretty slow around here in the winter, so what you try to do is tough it through the winter because we don’t get the tourists that you get in Steamboat,” he said. He said that his business, which he runs with his wife, wouldn’t be hit as hard as others because they don’t have a mortgage or any payments to make. But Elliott said other shops in town probably would be hit harder. Even the business from locals is down because the locals are being hit hard, as well, he said. Elliott, who is the mayor of Oak Creek, said he expects business in the winter to remain slow in Oak Creek. “We’ve got Christmas coming up, but we don’t have a lot

of large retailers around here, so they’re going to spend their money in Steamboat or Eagle or wherever they’re going to spend it, and that’s just going to dry up their discretionary income further,” he said. Farther south in Routt County, the Black Dog Inn in Phippsburg has seen about a 10 percent decline in business, coowner Marlene Smith said. She said the hunters have reported good hunts but that not as many newcomers have shown up this year. In Steamboat Springs, the harvest was strong through the first and second seasons for Steamboat Meat and Seafood, primarily from three ranches near town. Butcher Shelly Perez said the third season was “horrible” and the fourth season is averaging out. Perez said the animals she has seen have been good, a trend

Haskins said he has noted, as well. “As far as the animals that have been harvested this year, we’ve seen probably the best bulls we’ve seen in years coming off public land,” likely because the past two to three years have not been as good, he said. “We’ve stockpiled bigger bulls, even approaching what some people would consider trophy class.” Hunting licenses are one of the biggest sources of revenue for the DOW, a system Haskins said needs to be rethought. “I think it’s something we need to be concerned about. I don’t think we should get in a panic, obviously,” he said. “Going into the future, depending on license sales to fund this agency is probably not realistic. We probably need other funding sources.”

Friday where the 29-year-old was remembered as a determined, energetic young woman. She joined the U.S. Army Reserves after the 2001 terrorist attacks and vowed to hunt down bin Laden. When her mother said she couldn’t do it alone, the soldier told her, “Watch me.” Krueger was to deploy to Afghanistan for a second time in December and recently had been sent for training at Fort Hood, where authorities allege Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan opened fire at a processing center. Krueger had been studying psychology at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and was a mental health specialist who wanted to help soldiers cope with combat stress. “Her smile would light up any room, her energy would envelope all of those around her,” her parents, Jeri Krueger and David Diem, said in a statement. “It is that smile and that energy that keeps us going throughout this difficult time.” She was what they call “Army Proud.” Krueger always wore a U.S. Army hat or shirt around town and sported a tattoo that had a tattered American flag and read: “All gave some. Some gave all. Sacrifice.” In Utah, among those crowded into a Mormon chapel were Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said Lt. Col. Lisa Olsen, Utah National Guard spokeswoman. They joined the family and friends of Pfc. Aaron Thomas

Nemelka for the funeral honoring the 19-year-old. Nemelka, of West Jordan, Utah, joined the Army a little more than a year ago and was preparing to deploy to Iraq. Other funerals on Saturday were for Capt. John Gaffaney, 56, a psychiatric nurse who worked for San Diego County, Calif., and Pfc. Michael Pearson, 22, of Bolingbrook, Ill. Pearson was remembered as a quiet observer and naturally talented musician who liked to share his love of the guitar.

Colorado Republicans seem to be putting family values in the political back seat as they try to win races next year on a simple agenda of small government and fiscal conservatism. In the state’s crowded Republican primaries to challenge Democratic incumbents for governor and U.S. senator, the candidates aren’t making triedand-true social appeals about topics such as abortion. Instead, Republicans are stumping on promises to rein in spending and turn back Democratic gains in Washington. At a Senate forum in Lakewood last week, four Republicans slammed ruling Democrats about what they call out-of-control spending and a bungled health reform effort. Gay marriage? Abortion? They didn’t even come up. “This is about putting first things first, and right now, that’s Democrats and the economy,” said former Republican state Sen. John Andrews, who teaches at Colorado Christian University and moderated the Republican forums for governor and Senate. State Sen. Josh Penry, R-Grand Junction, urged the

same tack before dropping out of the governor’s race, and he urged candidate Scott McInnis, a former congressman, to do the same. Colorado Republican Party chairman Dick Wadhams said Republicans win races when they focus on fiscal responsibility, security and education. He said Republicans suffered heavy losses in Colorado in 2006 and 2008 because the national Republican Party failed to honor those principles. “Whether moderate or conservative, Republicans are now reclaiming the mantle of fiscal responsibility,” Wadhams said. That’s the same analysis of one Republican running for Senate. Former Lt. Gov. Jane Norton was asked at the Lakewood forum why Republicans have been losing in recent elections. She said the GOP “blew it” on fiscal responsibility and must persuade voters that Republicans are best trusted with the nation’s pocketbook. Many conservative voters seem thrilled with the GOP strategy to focus on the economy and government spending, not social questions. “I don’t give a damn about that,” said 79-year-old Pat Butler, of Lakewood. “That personal stuff, that’s private. I want to talk about bringing this country back around. I think we ought to get down to the basics.”

Director says Colorado is in the bottom 5 states nationally for per-pupil funding Schools continued from 1A for the district. “What’s good is we got a number to deal with,” he said. “We knew there would be cuts but didn’t have a number.” Ritter’s office has called the proposed $260 million cut a 4.6 percent decrease statewide. But Education Department officials said it actually would amount to a 6.1 percent when increased student numbers and statutory requirements are factored in. State Sen. Al White, R­Hayden, will have a chance to weigh in on the proposed cut when the legislature reconvenes in January. He said unless someone comes up with a creative solution to find $260 million elsewhere to help reduce the more than $1 billion estimated deficit in the 2010-11 budget, they’ll have to make that cut. “With K-12 education repre-

senting 43 percent of the general fund, I don’t know how to fill the hole we’ll need to fill without going to K-12,” he said. “It’s unfortunate but necessary.”

Light on funding Colorado already is in the bottom five states nationally in per-pupil funding, said Tracie Rainey, the executive director of the Colorado School Finance Project. The Colorado School Fin­ ance Project was created in 1994 to compile, collect and distribute research-based information and data on topics related to school finance, according to its Web site. Citing U.S. Census data of local school finances in 2006-07 — the most recent data available — Rainey said Colorado, at $8,167, spent $1,499 less per K-12 pupil than the national average. The Census data indicated that in 2006-07, New York provided the highest K-12 perpupil funding, at nearly $16,000. The lowest was Utah, which

provided $5,683 per student. Rainey said although it hasn’t been determined how Ritter’s proposed cut would affect each school district in the state, the proposed $260 million cut amounted to about $400 per student. “If you look at how far below the national average we already are and then make that significant of a cut, you’re looking at severely dismantling the current system we have,” she said. Rainey said the proposed funding decrease would result in larger class sizes and cuts of programs and services students rely on. According to Department of Education numbers, Routt’s estimated per-pupil funding for 2009-10 is $8,819.28 in Hayden, $7,239.77 in Steamboat and $9,090.44 in South Routt. Perpupil funding starts at a base of $5,507.68 for this school year, and additional funding is determined by evaluating factors such as cost of living, district size and

at-risk student population. Cunningham said Ritter’s proposed 2010-11 cut would be in addition to what the district cut this year. She said Steamboat cut $200,000 to $300,000 from the 2009-10 budget and is looking at more cuts next year. “We have made reductions from last year to this year, so we have already begun this process,” Cunningham said. And she said the proposed cut is the second hit the district will face in the coming years. Cunningham said less sales tax revenue this year also would affect each Routt County district’s ability to receive money from the Education Fund Board, which determines how to distribute revenue from the city’s half-cent sales tax. Last fall, Steamboat voters approved a ballot measure for Hayden and South Routt to apply for gifts from the Fund Board. Both districts received money last year. The city’s sales tax collec-

tions were down 19.9 percent in September compared with the same month a year ago, according to sales tax figures released Tuesday. Steamboat’s sales tax collections are down nearly 17.4 percent year to date.

Prepping for solutions Routt County district superintendents said they’ve begun to explore where to cut. But they said it was too early to tell where reductions would come. Cunningham said Steam­ boat, as it did with this year’s budget, would explore ways to cut as much as possible while “staying as far away from the classroom as possible.” Rockhold said Hayden would try to avoid cuts that would affect students. He said it is important to note that the legislature still has to decide whether to approve Ritter’s recommendation. But he said an Department of Education official who met with Western Slope school districts recently

in Grand Junction said next school year would be a “wild and bumpy ride.” South Routt has begun discussing where and what it could cut in 2010-11, Mader said. He said the district likely would work to develop alternatives regarding what could be cut and could increase fees to generate additional revenue. Mader said that information would be discussed among the district’s administration, the school board and with members of the community. Despite not knowing what might be cut, Mader said South Routt is moving forward knowing there’s likely no escape from Ritter’s proposed K-12 cut next year. “We don’t know what the legislature’s going to do, but we assume these are the cuts,” Mader said. “We’ll go forward assuming around this percentage. We aren’t going to dodge this.” — To reach Jack Weinstein, call 871-4203 or e-mail jweinstein@steamboatpilot.com

better serve the community and the Special Olympics qualifying folks by having the tournament here and including everyone,” said Mike “Woody” Bieron, a Knights of Columbus member who helped launch the local bowling program 16 years ago. Members of the Catholic fraternal service organization volunteer to help Special Olympics athletes with practice for two hours every Saturday through the fall, and they fund the program with an annual Tootsie Roll candy sale, Bieron said. Family, friends, community members and well-wishers filled Snow Bowl by the time the tournament got into full swing, as a variety of athletes bowled for competition, fun or both. Donnie Pearce, a Horizons client in Steamboat, said he was enjoying seeing all his friends while competing. His goal to “get as many strikes as you can” seemed to be working, as he pulled a 137 in his first game. Misty Garcia, also a Steamboat Horizons client, said she likes “getting in the 90s” and if possible, getting strikes. More than that, she

enjoyed being with friends during the tournament. Mike Dwire, a vocational specialist with Horizons who helps organize the bowling program, said the regional Snow Bowl tournament is likely to continue for the next

few years. “It’s great to see people from the community and the families here. When you have out-of-town tournaments you don’t get that,” Dwire said. Saturday’s tournament opened with the national anthem and a

recitation of the Special Olympics creed and closed with a medal ceremony. Athletes competed against their lane, and everyone received a medal or a ribbon. — To reach Margaret Hair, call 871-4204 or e-mail mhair@steamboatpilot.com

Plaza to open with ski area One Steamboat Place ready to begin closing 1st 100 sales

T

he developers of One Steamboat Place say they are ready to come out of the starting gates Nov. 25 when they open their public plaza simulta­ neously with the first day of skiing at Steamboat Ski Area. Story by After two Tom Ross years of construction through two of the snowiest winters on record, Timbers Resorts has scheduled its first closings of condominium sales this week, Project Director Chris Burden said. They expect 100 closings during the next four weeks with more to follow on a more gradual pace. The developers expected to receive a temporary certificate of occu­ pancy from the city for the west condominium wing Nov. 12. The 465,000-square-foot resort building officially will open to guests Jan. 9, Burden said. Timbers expects to see 80 percent occupancy of the 80 condominiums during ski season. “Our owners are already booking vacations,” Burden said. “We have a concierge on staff, and we’re already booking activities for our guests.” However, the skiing public will get its first up close and personal experience with One Steamboat Place when the ski area opens for the 2009-10 season. That’s when the public plaza linking Mount Werner Circle to the Gondola Transit Center opens for business. “It’s important for us that the plaza is open when the ski area opens,” Burden said. “This is a new entrance to the moun­ tain.” Workers had nearly complet­ ed installation of pavers in the heated plaza Thursday morning and were testing a membrane

sunday focus

under the upper gondola bull wheel to ensure that it was waterproof. Burden said that the Jan. 9 opening date puts the project right on schedule but that exte­ rior work, including landscap­ ing, is ahead of schedule. “Because of the economy, Haselden (Construction) has been able to devote some of its best people to our project,” Burden said. “The foremen working here would typically be spread around a number of jobs. We’ve really benefited from that.” The new Wildhorse Gondola isn’t expected to be operational until February; however, the Steamboat Ski & Snowboard School ticket office, the relocat­ ed Surefoot ski boot and fitting shop and a new independent ski shop will be open for busi­ ness the day the ski area opens. Olympic downhiller Chad Fleischer said fixtures are due to be installed this week in his ski shop, Fleischer Sport. He will take the roles of general and retail manager for the shop. Fleischer bought a commercial condominium right next to the gondola unloading area. A new restaurant, Truffle Pig, is not expected to open until July. Burden said he hopes the public will recognize One Steamboat Place as more than a new luxury condominium complex. “It’s more than just condo­ miniums at the base area; it’s an expansion of the base village,” he said. Once the building is fully open in January, he encour­ ages anyone who is curious about the new project to enter through the plaza level main entrance and ask for a guided tour. The office is immediately to the right of the entrance doors. See Plaza, page 2B

Routt County foreclosure filings continue to rise Front Range expert: Yampa Valley property scene not as bad, but there is likely more hardship ahead Tom Ross

PILOT & TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

The number of Americans facing the prospect of losing their homes to foreclosure was down for the third straight month in October, but it was still up nearly 20 percent from a year ago. And a Front Range foreclosure expert recently told a Steamboat audience that on

a per capita basis, the distressed property scene in Routt County is not nearly as pronounced as in Weld and Larimer counties, for example. But there’s like­ ly more hardship ahead in the Yampa Valley. “Forty to 50 percent of the sales in Greeley, Boulder and Larimer County are short sales,” Richard Evans said. “It’s a big part of our business. With the number of dwellings” in Routt

County (11,880), the 67 proper­ ties lost here since October 2006 are “not much.” Evans is the district manager for Stewart Title of Colorado, overseeing operations in Weld, Larimer, Boulder, Jackson and San Miguel counties. As a fore­ closure attorney working for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and Farm Credit Union, he said he has handled thou­ sands of foreclosures.

He spoke Nov. 5 at the Steamboat Springs Real Estate Roundup and Expo hosted by Colorado Group Realty. That perspective won’t offer much solace to the 23 Routt County property owners who have been foreclosed on and have seen their property deeds trans­ ferred to the holders of their bank notes thus far in 2009. Public Trustee Jeanne Whid­ don confirmed that the number

of property owners receiving notification in 2009 whose lend­ ers are seeking foreclosure grew to 170 this week. That figure is up from 157 on Nov. 1. How many of those 170 will actually lose their property? The final tally for 2009 won’t be known until early 2010, Whiddon said. That’s because the foreclosure process can be See Foreclosures, page 2B

Drahota completed the building during two years of record snowfall. The project finished 42 days ahead of schedule and under budget. Steamboat averages 360 inches of snow each year, and during construction, Drahota’s team placed 8,000 cubic yards of concrete, while the ski mountain registered 489 inches of snow. More than 80 feet of snow fell during the two winters of construction activity, 90 percent of the concrete placement occurred during these snowstorms and only one of the 12 major pours was postponed. “In Drahota’s 36-year history, I’ve never seen a group of people work better together,” President Terry Drahota said. “Everybody worked hand in hand to create a magnificent building.”

“We encourage Steamboat residents to stop in,” Burden said. In the meantime, crews are working toward completion inside and outside the building. Furniture installers from J. Banks Design have delivered furnishings into the residence club condominiums and some of the whole-ownership units in the west wing, Burden said. They will return Dec. 1 to furnish the amenity areas of the building. The amenities include an owners’ lounge with a two-story fireplace and living room furniture, as well as beverage service. Next door in the more intimate members gathering room is a large-screen TV with a glassenclosed wine room in which owners may store their private collection. There’s ample space for 1,000 bottles. The showpiece of the gathering room will be a fine-art replica of a traditional trophy deer mount fashioned of handblown glass and bronze. The club members’ locker room is nearing completion, as is the space for the spa. Burden said Timbers Resorts has had to add additional spa treatment rooms at its other resorts, so One Steamboat Place has 10 rooms including couples’ rooms complete with large bathtubs. This year’s occupancy is being driven by owners planning their own vacations, as well as members of the Timbers Residence Club, who have purchased fractional ownership of

lengthy and has built-in time to allow property owners to cure their delinquency on payments. Recent history suggests that the number could be in the range of 20 percent, but there’s no way to be certain that the national decline in properties lost to foreclosure will hold sway here. Whiddon reported that 10 of 47 property owners in Routt County who received those initial notices of election and demand, or NEDs, in 2007 lost their property. The number of NEDs grew to 55 in 2008, but the number of deeds returned to lenders was again 10. So, the 23 properties lost thus far in 2009 are more than double the number in the past two years and the number appears certain to grow, but for the time being, it represents a lower percentage of NEDs than in the preceding two years. Evans said the Colorado foreclosure law that went into effect on Jan. 1, 2008, affords property owners 110 to 125 days to cure their problems with their lenders before the property goes to resolve and the trustee issues a certificate of purchase. The cure, or payoff period, is even longer for agricultural properties — 215 to 230 days. In addition, Evans said, banks often opt to continue sales for as along as another 12 months. His title office is busy assisting Realtors and property owners working with distressed properties. They cannot give out legal advice, he cautioned, but use their experience to steer people in the right direction. Evans urges property owners who expect that they soon will be in trouble with their mortgage payments to accept

that they are not likely to come out of the process completely unscathed. “For people who realize, ‘I see the locomotive coming — I’m going to miss a payment,’ I want them to open their eyes and accept they may not be able to have the perfect option,” he said. Evans said it is likely that Routt County residents who have been subjected to a trustee’s sale are probably upside down in their homes — they owe more than the house and land are worth. For some, but not all, the short sale process is one way to avoid the damage to their credit rating that is implicit in a foreclosure. In a short sale, Evans said, lenders agree to sell the property for less than the amount of the note. Banks aren’t good at carrying foreclosed properties, Evans said, and want to avoid the considerable expense that goes with it. However, if property owners’ demonstrable income is above a certain level, suggesting they should be able to resume making payments, they won’t agree to enter into the short sale process. For property owners and Realtors working with short sales, it is highly desirable if the lender will agree to an acceptable short sale in advance, Evans said. Short sales can be lucrative for Realtors, he added, but the most successful Realtors in the current market on the Front Range have learned to be exceptionally organized in vetting property titles, preparing property work and following up with banks. “I have a number of Realtors having their best years on the Front Range,” Evans said. “There’s a lot of juice in there for short sales.”

Bring the touchstones of your heritage into your home Judy Hevrdejs CHICAGO TRIBUNE

CHICAGO

THIBAULT JEANSON/COURTESY KATHRYN M. IRELAND/MCT

This Wallace Neff-designed house is the subject of Kathryn M. Ireland’s latest book, “Creating a Home.” Ireland recently shared tips about how to reference your roots subtly without having an exact imagery of the place.

We are a nation of nomads, traveling from house to apartment to condo to townhouse, searching for that comfort we call home. Along the way, we collect the trappings of who we are: an Evening Star quilt sewn by an aunt from Alabama. Unikat pottery your Polish grandmother used at special family dinners. Beaded pillow covers embroidered by a cousin in India. Each beautiful. Each a nod to our roots. How, though, do pieces of your life find a home in a contemporary condo in the city or a split-level in the suburbs? Well, steer clear of clichés, say interior designers Kathryn Ireland and Benjamin NoriegaOrtiz, and try referencing your roots subtly without having an exact imagery of the place. “You can do that very subliminally,” says Noriega-Ortiz, who was born in Puerto Rico but now lives in New York. “Look back into how you grew up, how you lived, where you lived. There are certain things from your environment when you were growing up that you can translate in your home.” Noriega-Ortiz’s book “Emotional Rooms” urges just

that, but he refrains from filling interiors with palm trees and seashells. Instead, his designs are very open, the rooms light and airy. Fabrics are transparent; colors echo the Caribbean. “Because I grew up in the warm weather, I grew up with a lot of light, and rooms feel very light, not heavy,” he says. “Had I grown up in the Rockies, for instance, it would have been heavy.” Flowing fabrics diffuse light. “It’s very tropical, and it makes (it) feel like mosquito netting even though you’re not using mosquito netting,” he says. And his passion for sea-foam paint? “The color of the water where I grew up was a sea-foam color — it was not blue — so I use that sea-foam color quite a bit,” he says. “I paint entire rooms that color, but very, very light just to give you the feeling of fresh.” He also bows to his roots with a bit of whimsy: A stuffed chicken and rooster sit in the entrance hall of his apartment. “People walk in, and they start laughing and say, ‘Why do you have that?’ And I say, ‘It made you laugh. Well, there you go. I grew up with chicken and roosters. There they are.’” Across the country and halfway around the world from the England and Scotland of her youth, Kathryn Ireland evokes England in a warm, subtle way.

“I decided some years ago, if I couldn’t get my children to move with me to the West Country — Dorset, Somerset which I love — I’d have to move it to me,” says the Santa Monica-based textile and interior designer. So she purchased a hefty cast-iron Aga cooker (a traditional cast-iron range that hails from Shropshire) for the kitchen in her Spanishstyle home. “The first thing I do in the morning is put my bottom up against the Aga,” she said laughing, about the stove famed for its radiant heat. “I’ve got a fairly contemporary kitchen, but anyone that comes in says, ‘Oooh, I feel like I’m in England.’” Furniture. Rugs. Fabrics. Each has the power to reference a place in the world, she says: “If I look at a room, there’s something in a room that will tell me where I am, where I’ve come from.” So Ireland uses wicker Lloyd Loom chairs in her home — “In the ’20s, you saw them on old steam boats. ... They’re just a little bit English” — and richly patterned fabrics in her interior designs, including the Wallace Neff-designed house that is the subject of her latest book, “Creating a Home.” “I completely restored it for myself, and ultimately sold it to Reese Witherspoon,” she says. “It is a little bit of traditional, little bit

of English, a little bit of France, and it’s very much California, it’s very much Spanish. Removing “labels” helps incorporate the odd piece into a home design, suggests NoriegaOrtiz, who prefers to think of furniture as sculptural objects. “One big mistake is to look at furniture as a period. It’s like, I have this Shaker chair, and I have this modern chair and this Biedermeier whatever,” he says. “Think of a chair as basically a horizontal surface with legs; then you’re looking at it as a sculpture; then it’s much easier to start putting things together.”

Tips from the pros Infuse your space with subtle references to family and heritage. ■ Keep familiar faces nearby: With paintings and portraits and photographs, says Ireland. “That’s something that makes you feel like home wherever you’re from.” ■ Leaven with contrast: Choose details that remind you of your heritage, then mix them with pieces that have a different feel. “Things that are heavy go with things that are light,” Noriega-Ortiz says. “Keep things that are clear next to things that are dark, like maybe a leggy table with a slipcover chair.” Let curtains tell the story: “You can tell where you are by window treatments,” Ireland says. “Wrought iron with simple pleats is Italy and Spain. In England, it’s much more elaborate — you have pelmets and fancy finials on your poles.” ■ Use color as a reference: In a neutral room, NoriegaOrtiz painted a pillar hot pink, a colorful shout-out to Mexican author Laura Esquivel, who owned the apartment. “If you grew up in Switzerland where the lighting is probably blue, you refer to that,” he says. ■ Unify with fabric: If you have an inconsistent collection of furniture, “Keep the fabrics all the same color, (and then) it’s really easy to put them together,” Noriega-Ortiz says.

Denver’s Residences at the RitzCarlton in foreclosure Margaret Jackson THE DENVER POST

The Residences at the RitzCarlton downtown are in foreclosure after the developer sold only one of the 25 units in the luxury condo community. The 202-room Ritz-Carlton hotel is not part of the foreclosure proceeding. The condominiums are on floors 15 to 19 of the building at 1881 Curtis St., formerly an Embassy Suites hotel. A team led by Charlie Biederman oversaw the $75 million redevelopment of the property, which opened with fanfare early last year. But only one of the condos sold since presales started three years ago, forcing the property, including its gym, Forza Fitness & Performance, into foreclosure. Biederman declined to comment. The lender for the residences, Goldman Sachs, is taking the property back and is attempting to reposition the condominiums. A questionable location across from the Greyhound Bus station and the lack of balconies made it difficult to sell the condos, said Dee Chirafisi, a broker at Kentwood City Properties who had the units listed for about a year. “There’s a lot of competition in the luxury market,” Chirafisi said. “People for 2 1/2 years have been extremely picky. Even with the quality and luxurious finishes and the Ritz-Carlton brand, if something’s missing, it doesn’t sell.” The balcony, in particular, is an issue for people wanting a unit as a primary residence, she said.

the Denver Post

There’s a new voice call­ ing for the Broncos to throw the ball down the field: Kyle Orton’s. It is his coach, Josh Mc­­ Dan­­­iels, who seems reluctant to let him try. Granted, this requires a little tea-leaf reading. The only times we actually see Orton and McDaniels talking is on the sideline dur­ ing games. Sometimes it looks as if they’re yelling at each other, but we can’t hear what they’re saying. McDaniels assures us that what you say is more impor­ tant than how you say it, and that Orton has a thick skin, so I guess we have some idea what they’re saying. But I wasn’t even asking Orton about that Wednesday when he volunteered that it would be great to make a few plays down the field. He was arguing that what the Broncos did to themselves was more important than what the Ravens and Steelers did to them the past two weeks. So I asked him what’s at the top of that list. “We’ve got to stay bal­ anced,” he said. “We’ve got to find a way to run the ball. We’ve got to find ways to make plays in the passing game. ... But we’ve also got to find ways to make bigger plays, no question about it. It’s tough to always rely on eight-, 10-play drives to score points. So it’d be great to find ways to score in three- or four-play drives.” Maybe he was thinking of the four-play, 80-yard drive that gave Pittsburgh the lead for good Monday night — an 18-yard pass play, a 24-yard running play, a 35-yard pass play and a 3-yard touchdown pass. The conventional wisdom, of course, is that Orton can’t make the long throws, so when Orton says the Broncos need more long pass plays, you have to wonder just what he’s trying to say. So I asked his coach whether it’s worth throwing the ball down the field a few times just to keep the safeties honest, even if those balls aren’t caught. “It’s easy to say that,” McDaniels replied. “When (Steelers safeties) Troy Polamalu and Tyrone Carter are 35 yards deep during the course of the game and you threw for 190 yards in the first half or whatever it might have been (actually 163), we were having success doing what we thought we should do to win the game.” I don’t have the coach’s game film, but it didn’t look to me as if Polamalu and Carter were playing 35 yards off the line of scrimmage very often. In fact, the three inter­ ceptions by safeties were 6, 14 and 8 yards from the line of scrimmage. So just how many shots at a deep throw did McDaniels give Orton? “We had a couple called — we didn’t get the looks that we wanted, and we didn’t throw them,” Orton said. Two? Two field-stretching calls with checkdowns if they don’t get the defensive look they want? Out of 54 plays? That might help explain why more than half of the Broncos’ pass plays this sea­ son — 54.7 percent — have gone for 10 yards or fewer. With a receiver the size of Brandon Marshall, you’d think you might take a shot at a jump ball every now and then just to give him a chance to make a play.

In a way, every place Greg Sussman has been and every­ thing he’s done have been for a reason. The 23-year-old new tennis pro at the Tennis Center at Steamboat Springs has in some way always found a reason to be where he is. Sussman, who originally is from Washington, D.C., attend­

ed and played tennis at Kenyon College in Ohio. He didn’t plan it this way, but his older brother was the captain of the baseball team at Kenyon, and his twin brother was the cap­ tain of the soccer team. “I guess in some way,” Suss­ man said, “we wanted to stick together.” Now, Sussman finds himself teaching tennis in Steamboat, after coming out on whim to look for work.

Sussman admits that he’d never heard of Steamboat, but his friend’s dad wanted him to look after and check up on some real estate projects in the area. From there, Sussman found it was the place he needed to be. “That put Steamboat on the map because I had never real­ ly heard of it,” he said. “I just started learning more and more. We were convinced it would be a matt stensland/staff good place to come.” Greg Sussman, 23, joins the teaching staff as a pro at the Tennis Center at Steamboat Springs. See Tennis, page 3C

Steamboat Springs High School senior Joe Dover returns the ball for 70 yards to score during the second half of Steamboat’s Friday night game. The Sailors won, 24-13, to advance to the second round. Steamboat will face Windsor on Saturday at Gardner Field.

Sailors eye Windsor

2nd playoff game expected to be Saturday in Steamboat

C

oming off its first playoff win in two years, the Steamboat Springs High School football team got good news Saturday when Windsor beat Pueblo County. The Wizards’ 33-20 win against the Hornets means the Sailors will host the second round of the playoffs. Although a time and date haven’t been determined, Steamboat coach Aaron Finch said the game would prob­ ably be Saturday.

sundayfocus Story by Luke Graham It also means Steamboat won’t have to travel to Pueblo County, a team that has knocked the Sailors out of the play­ offs two of the past three years. “I think it’s good,” Finch said. “Some­­times you need things to go your way to get through each step of the play­

offs. I’m glad knowing that we’ll have at least two home playoff games.” But it’s the first home playoff game, Steamboat’s 24-13 win Friday against Berthoud, that has the coach excited. Despite the offense’s season-low out­ put in terms of yards, the Sailors proved why they are at least in the discussion of teams that could make a run at the Class 3A championship.

Preparations begin for Olympic Trials Joel Reichenberger PILOT & TODAY STAFF

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

Andy Wirth met Friday morn­ ing’s long-awaited snow with a knowing smile. “Only the rookies worry,” the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. senior vice president of sales and marketing said that afternoon as the inches began to pile up. Steamboat Springs went from a frustrating 60 degrees to a 12-inch-deep winter wonderland in one night. It was a relief for eager skiers and snowboarders across the Yampa Valley. For Wirth and others, though, it was a reminder that the win­ ter season is approaching quick­ ly, and with it all the excitement of the Olympic Trials, set to be played out in Steamboat Springs

on Dec. 23 and 24. “This kind of opportunity, it’s just really exciting,” said Rick DeVos, director of the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club. Steamboat will play host to tri­ als for Nordic combined, aerials and moguls. Each of the three contested events will award one athlete with an assured a spot on the bus to the 2010 Winter Olympics, which are scheduled to start Feb. 12 in Vancouver, British Columbia. The three events with trials in Steamboat will be contested at the Whistler Olympic Park. The rest of the nation’s contin­ gent will be decided later based on results in Steamboat and in other top-tier events. Larry Pierce/courtesy In many ways, preparing for Steamboat skier Travis Mayer skis in the moguls competition during the the two-day event is no different Olympic Trials in Steamboat Springs before the 2006 Winter Olympics. The Olympic See Trials, page 3C qualifier event is returning to Steamboat on Dec. 23 and 24.

A fresh, new NFL head coach has his team off to a 6-2 start. Sure, there have been some bumps along the way, but most everyone is pleasantly surprised with a record that’s better than anyone would have predicted. Sound familiar, Jim Zorn? Next game: “We were 6-2 Broncos at last year at our Washington start, and yet it’s 11 a.m. very difficult,” Sunday Zorn said. “It’s CBS hard to win in the NFL.” It’s been hard to win for a full year for the Washington Redskins, who are 4-12 since Zorn’s “Hip, Hip, Hooray!” run that had him looking like a coach of the year candidate in his rookie season on the job. Since then, of course, all the flaws that were easy to overlook during eight weeks of success have been exposed for all the league to see, and Zorn isn’t expected to make it to a third season. Which takes us to Josh McDaniels, this year’s new kid on the block who could do no wrong. He has the Denver Broncos at 6-2, but the two loss­ es have come in the last two games. Has the league started to figure him out? Are the Broncos’ flaws greater than they appeared at 6-0? Will he meet the same fate as Zorn? Or is this just a blip on the radar screen of a promising coaching career? “It’s a little bit of who we played,” Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey said, “and a little bit of what we didn’t do in the games.” Indeed, it’s no embarrassment to lose on the road to Baltimore or at home to Pittsburgh, but the offense didn’t do much either week and the losses allowed San Diego to move within a game of first place in the AFC West. The truest test yet as to whether the Broncos are trending down­ ward comes today when they visit the Redskins (2-6), a team that has dropped four straight and practically owns the down­ ward arrow. “You’re happy to start with wins, and we were, but certainly not content,” McDaniels said. “We haven’t accomplished any­ thing, and we’re certainly not satisfied with the way we’ve played the last two weeks.”

Local Little League to keep affiliation Searching for something? STEAMBOAT SPRINGS

The state of baseball in Steamboat Springs is strong, the town’s Little League board of directors said Thursday evening over a bucket of peanuts at the Steamboat Smokehouse in downtown Steamboat. With a quick vote — a collection of “ayes” barely piercing the din of the barbecue restaurant — the group decided to maintain its affiliation with the most well known nationwide baseball association. The group did dedicate itself to overcoming some of the frustrations of recent seasons, however, and a big step in that direction could involve downplaying or getting rid of the Little League all-star break. “We’re doing great,” Chaun­

period in the past have lacked a competitive nature and that the players quickly lose interest. “We have tried to maintain a baseball system after all-star, but the kids have this perception that it’s not real baseball,” Terin Petersen said. “A lot of kids don’t show up, and their parents are done being at games, and we have forfeits right and left.” Whether Steamboat will field all-star teams next summer is still up in the air. The committee agreed to see what kind of interest existed as the season bore on. What the board did decide, though, was to concentrate on maintaining a league schedule through that period even if a few players left for the district tournament. “If we can continue through that break, there won’t be the perception that baseball is over,”

Petersen said. “Games will be scheduled all the way through. We should play through the first week of August, then let families leave on vacations.” That’s only one of the problems first-year league President Kat Kelly hopes to rectify. New to Steamboat three years ago, Kelly said she remembers the thriving Little League world in Houston, and she hopes to bring a little of that attitude to the mountains. Also on her to-do list are a concession stand for the Emerald Field diamonds, a greater effort to pick up sponsors, an increase in membership and a focus on building a Little League softball league in Steamboat. “We want to make this a community of baseball fans,” Kelly said. “It’s a great sport. It teaches a lot of discipline.”

Wirth: Marketing campaign planned to attract spectators Trials continued from 1C from organizing for dozens of similarly large events the town and ski area host every winter. Still, organizers said the trials are a unique animal and that they offer an experience unparalleled anywhere this side of the Olympic Games. “It’s as close as you can get,” Wirth said. “Being able to stage an event that carries the rings is a real honor and carries with it an incredible amount of prestige.” Wirth said a marketing campaign will launch before the trials to try to lure Front Range skiing fans to Steamboat for the event. Plenty of thought has gone into creating a venue for an audience — both the millions who will tune in to a Dec. 26 NBC broadcast and the thousands who could show up to watch the event live. But despite all that anticipated electricity, the Olympic Trials will be a small event as far as competitor numbers are concerned. World Cup events tend to attract many more skiers. Only U.S. Ski Team members will get a chance to lock up an Olympic team spot. There should be fewer than 20 competitors in each of the men’s and women’s events.

Carving the snow Plenty of concern has been poured into creating adequate venues for the athletes, too. As for the snow, organizers are going out of their way to make sure venues are in shape in time. Snow making at the ski area has started, and unlike most years, its early season goals are twofold. First, the idea is to have at least some runs completely snow-covered for Steamboat Ski Area’s planned opening Nov. 25. This year, there also has been an effort to make snow on VooDoo, the lower-mountain run that is carved into a competitive mogul course every winter. The ski area rented snow making equipment to help bear the extra burden and prepare for the trials without regular customers noticing. “Even though we’ve done some earthwork to prepare for the aerials and bumps, we still have to do extensive snow making,” Wirth said. “Still, we are very committed to the guest experience, and we hired additional guns and compressors to make it all work.” The end-of-the-week snow helped, but those focusing on the freestyle venue said nothing short

of a week of San Diego weather would stop this competition. Winter Sports Club freestyle coach Rob Day has split his time between worrying about the construction of a course and the development of Steamboat’s athletes. “I’m just praying it stays cold,” he said. “The course will definitely be built. This is too big for it not to happen.” DeVos, meanwhile, said he wasn’t sweating the physical preparations at the Winter Sports Club’s Howelsen Hill complex, which will feature the Nordic combined competition. “If it had been a Dec. 1 event, we might have a different kind of approach, but because it’s just before Christmas, everything should be in shape by that point,” he said. “With that date, it doesn’t faze us.”

Keeping control Focus on preparing for the coming trials hasn’t been limited to worrying about snow and TV, though. Steamboat skier and U.S. Ski Team member Jeremy Cota, 21, said he’s done everything he can to make this fall similar to every other he’s gone through.

He worked diligently all summer, four days every week at the water ramp at Bald Eagle Lake, and still is sticking to his dryland training regimen as the snow falls and resorts open across the state. He said he’s managed to get in a few days of skiing so far, traveling to Keystone, Arapaho Basin and Copper Mountain. He’ll get more later this month at the U.S. Team’s fall camp. “There’s a lot of anxiousness, and we’re getting ready for the competition season,” said Cota, who is preparing for his first Olympic Trials. “In Olympic years, everyone’s trying to push it a little bit harder, and you can definitely tell. I wouldn’t say I’m nervous, though. I’m in a great position where I can just go out and ski my best.” He said even as a gateway to a long-held dream of Olympic glory is little more than a month away, he’s doing everything he can to keep focused. “The Olympics has always been a dream,” he said. “That’s what everyone wants to do, but a lot of people get caught up with overly trying to make it and really don’t do well in these events. If you don’t focus on doing your best, it’s hard to win.”

cey Cooke said. “We just want to improve it.” As with most summer sports, baseball in Steamboat Springs comes with its caveats. Thanks to snow-covered or muddy fields, the league doesn’t start until June. Then, in recent years, it has broken in early July for an all-star break. The top players from league teams are pulled together to compete in a district tournament. That’s the route that for a few teams of 11- and 12-yearolds each year ends on ESPN and at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa. It’s been a frustrating break for Steamboat’s baseball league, however. “We lose steam when we stop for the all-star break,” Eric Simonsen said. Simonsen said the games tentatively scheduled during that

Center director: I thought Sussman would be a great fit Tennis continued from 1C Sussman, who was doing research in Israel before coming to Steamboat, brings an impressive tennis background with him. He played four years at Division III Kenyon College, earning All-Northern Coast Athletic Conference honors each year. His senior year, he helped the team reach the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament. He also was a pro at the

East Hampton Tennis Club in New York and worked multiple junior development programs in Washington, D.C. While in Israel, he also played in the Israeli Tennis Association. “It was great. I mean, they’re really competitive people,” Suss­ man said. “There were players of all ages. There were older guys that were still playing really competitively. I was able to meet a lot of cool people. It was no different than being in D.C. at all.” It was Sussman’s versatility and ability to work with all ages

that made him a good fit. Tennis Center Director Jim Swiggart said he had 13 applicants for the position, but none fit the way Sussman did. “There were a number of things,” Swiggart said. “He was the only one who had an extensive background in both junior and adult coaching. He was the only one whose references thought enough of him to offer more references. He’s definitely a world-traveled player. He’s well-spoken, and I thought he would be a great fit for our ten-

nis community.” Sussman replaces Marie Matrka, who is moving back to Cincinnati to prepare for graduate school. Sussman said he’s excited to take in Steamboat’s vast array of outdoor activities. He’s also looking forward to getting to know and teach the people of Steamboat. “It’s been a lot of fun,” Sussman said. “The people are great. They’re really athletic, and they pick things up so quick. I’m excited.”

In addition to the defense playing lights out, the team got two huge special teams plays to seal the win. Joe Dover’s returns of 84 and 70 yards — the latter for a touchdown — helped score 10 points and proved to be the big­ gest difference. But with Windsor on the horizon, a team out of the same league as Berthoud, is Steamboat worried about its offensive production? No doubt Windsor and Berthoud will share informa­ tion, and considering Berthoud held the Steamboat offense down for most of the game, it would be logical to think there might be some worries in the Steamboat huddle. “Oh no, of course not,” Finch said. “The reality is, with our offense and defense, it’s all the same kids. Not many guys come off the field. A game like (Friday’s), you know they’re going to have a strong defense. When you see our defense play­ ing the way it is, maybe your offense isn’t as wide open as possible.” Steamboat’s running num­ bers were strong Friday as the Sailors averaged 5 yards a carry. But maybe a little more wor­ risome is the passing attack. Steamboat threw for only 78 yards, and quarterback Austin Hinder matched his season total with two interceptions. Hinder, however, said Sat­ urday that his off day could be attributed partly to Berthoud but mostly to him. “They had a really good defense,” Hinder said. “The two interceptions were just plain stupidity on my part. I was trying to force in balls. But it’s good. It’s just another learning experience.” Finch, who was at Saturday’s Windsor-Pueblo County game, got somewhat of an idea of what the Wizards do but said he didn’t want to say much before watching film. He did say Windsor was an athletic team with big players and a large roster. He said it was tough to tell how Steamboat would match up because Pueblo County and Steamboat are two different teams. Windsor finished the sea­ son 7-2 overall, its losses came against Class 4A Northridge and Class 3A No. 3 seed Moun­ tain View. For comparison, Berthoud lost to Mountain View, 7-6, and Windsor lost to Mountain View, 21-7. Finch said he expects his team to play much better this week. He said his team played a little tight Friday, especially considering that few players had made it through the first round of the playoffs. He said he thinks that with a win in their back pockets, the Sailors will start to get back into their groove. “It goes back to relaxing and playing the way we can play,” he said. “We didn’t play with quite the same rhythm. A lot of that is Berthoud is a good foot­ ball team. They take you out of what you like to do. Now I think we’ll be able to settle into our playoffs. “We’re excited to be in the second round and continue on. It’s fun football, and the kids are loving it. We want to keep at this a couple more weeks.” — To reach Luke Graham, call 871-4229 or e-mail lgraham@steamboatpilot.com

Now that the hometown fans are finally taking notice of No. 4 TCU, maybe the rest of the nation also will realize that the BCS-hopeful Horned Frogs are for real. In likely its last significant hurdle to an undefeated regular season, TCU scored three touchdowns in a 2 1/2-minute span early in the second quarter and beat No. 16 Utah, 55-28, on Saturday night.

Keiland Williams ran for 116 yards and two second-half touchdowns, helping fend off upset-minded Louisiana Tech. Williams’ first score, on a powerful 3-yard run that moved the pile, gave LSU (8-2) a 17-13 lead midway through third quarter.

New ski and snowboard technology is a cut above

S

kis and snowboards have come a long way in terms of shape since each started out as large planks of wood strapped to brave winter engineers. Evolution is again at the heart of the newest crop of gear available at shops around Steamboat Springs. New shapes and new thinking about what a ski or snowboard should be able to do will dominate the winter. The largest change for both mediums comes in rocker and camber technology. Each term refers to the shape of the ski or snowboard and, more accurately, to how much and where the traditionally flat planks bend. A rocker ski, like the Hell Bent from K2, available at Ski Haus for $729, curves sharply at either end. That makes it nearly perfect for deep snow and cushy powder but greatly reduces the area in the middle of the ski that will make clean photos by joel reichenberger/staff ki Haus’ Pete Normand shows off a pair of skis that demonstrate the newest changes in ski shape. The Rossignol S7, left, $799 at contact with the snow on more Ski Haus, features camber and rocker technology, making it an ideal powder ski that won’t feel too squirrelly or uncomfortable on packed-down runs like groomers. more stable groomed trails. The K2 Hell Bent, right, $729, has an intense rocker bend, making it a premium powder ski.

S

A

pair of Armada skis from One Stop Ski Shop follow the year’s trend in shape innovation. The Armada Alpha 1, left, $699, and the JP vs. Julien, $775, feature Armada’s Elf Shoe Tech. The skis break at different angles at five points, allowing for the rocker effect, which is great for a deep powder, and for a little camber under foot, allowing traction on groomed runs. “You can ski powder all day and still come out on the groomers and carve it up,” One Stop Ski Shop’s Sean Battiste said. “We sell out of these every year, so we stocked up this year.” ➤

sundayfocus Story by Joel Reichenberger A ski with camber, meanwhile, bends up slightly toward the point of the binding, so when a boot is in it, it presses down and provides a good, stable platform for smooth snow. Snowboards share many of the same characteristics, and just how much each ski or snowboard incorporates those bends and breaks dictates how they’ll ride this winter. Other innovations for the 2009-10 promise to make things easier, safer and more comfortable for owners. One binding promises to reduce the stress on a skier’s ACL during a crash while another can be transformed from park perfect to all-mountain ideal with a few quick adjustments. New ski and snowboard boots, meanwhile, promise more comfort and greater versatility.

Learn the lingo ■ Camber The ski or snowboard ends curve down toward the ground. The weight of the athlete makes the ski or snowboard level to the ground giving it more carving ability on groomers and hard-packed snow. The raised center gives the ski or snowboard more pop coming out of turns.

■ Rocker Also known as reverse camber, the ski or snowboard ends curve up and away from the ground. The curved-up ends help with flotation in powder. Manufacturers offer a wide range of reverse camber gear to cater to an athlete’s specific needs.

T

he Union Force binding, left, $200, offers increased padding underfoot and on the straps that helps make a long day that much more comfortable. Rubber sections on the bottom help prevent board damage. The Union Contact, right, $180, provides extra flexibility and also comes with much of the same focus on increased comfort. ➤

T

he heel section of the KneeBinding, $480 at One Stop Ski Shop, will twist, potentially releasing the back of a skier’s boot horizontally or at an angle and hopefully reducing the stress applied to the delicate knee ligaments in a crash. “It releases laterally at the heel where ACL injuries happen,” shop owner John Kole said. “Injuries happen so often, so if there’s something we can do to help alleviate it, it seems like a great way to go.”

arth Brooks has been undoubtedly popular nationwide. The country music superstar has sold more than 113 million copies of his 14 albums. Still, I always have been convinced that people from my region of Kansas liked him just a little bit more. Brooks hosted a series of concerts in Wichita, Kan., when I was young. Originally, it was supposed to be a one-show stop, but so many people showed up to buy tickets that Brooks expanded his performance to three shows, then five. One local radio station played his newest single 24-7 when it was released in the mid-1990s. I’ve always had the feeling that Steamboat Springs has a similar love affair with Jon Krakauer. Obviously, Krakauer is popular. The best-selling author has unleashed a string of home runs with the five books he’s authored, and his 1996 best-seller “Into the Wild” made a seamless jump to the big screen. Still, when I moved to the mountains, I don’t know much about him at all. In Steamboat, Krakauer is one of everyone’s favorite authors. In Kansas, he’s a writer some people have heard of. I felt the need to catch up, so I made “Into Thin Air” my first Krakauer book, and I loved it. I read few books as quickly as I did the author’s harrowing account of the 1996 disaster on Mount Everest. It was enthralling. That’s one of the things that made Krakauer’s latest work, “Where Men Win Glory,” a disappointment. I finished it last week, and although it was definitely good, it didn’t live up to my expectations. There were plenty of reasons why not. Krakauer wrote about Pat Tillman, the NFL player who gave up everything to join the Army Rangers and fight for his country in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He was killed in 2004 in a friendly fire incident that temporarily was covered up by the Army and the government. The first half of the book heaps an absurd amount of praise on Tillman, managing to justify a high school fight in which Tillman beat a kid from a rival school half to death. The second half of the book manages to be considerably more captivating, but Krakauer seems intent on finding someone to blame not only for the cover-up that followed Tillman’s death, but for his death itself. He does a compelling job convincing me that the Army and the Bush White House handled Tillman’s death in an astonishingly embarrassing fashion. The greater connections Krakauer tries to draw, however, fall flat, as do many small asides seeming to cast blame for Tillman’s death on nearly everyone. What happened to Pat Till­ man was a tragedy, and Krak­ auer crafted a compelling book out of an astonishing story. It was no “Into Thin Air,” though. That’s OK, Jon. Chris Gaines sucked, too.

N

ew ski boots and bindings offer greater versatility and comfort. The Marker Griffon Schizo binding, from $395 at Ski Haus, includes a small plastic key that tucks into the base of the binding. It is used to crank the binding forward or back on the ski to make it easy to carve around the mountain all morning and spend the afternoon in the terrain park. Meanwhile, Salomon’s latest ski boots, the Falcon CS Pro on the left, $729, and the Falcon CS Crystal, $629, both at Ski Haus, don’t just include the ability to heat and mold the inner boot. Skiers can mold the outer boot, as well, allowing for a more comfortable fit, especially for skiers with wider feet. The innovation also is available on women’s boots, including the $549 Idol 9 CS and the $629 Instinct CS. ➤

A

slew of new snowboards take advantage of the latest in rocker thinking. No board company does it the same way, either, so finding one to suit a particular taste is important. The Smokin’ MIP with dirt rocker technology for women, far left in the Vixen, $450, and second from right in shape of the men’s Superpark Disco Limited, $420, feature a flat section between the feet but curved up ends, making for a stable ride that still incorporates some of the powder advantages of rocker boards. The women’s Gnu B-Street Banana Traction, second from left, $470, and the Never Summer Evo-R, far right, $450,

have a wavy, serrated edge that helps add traction that is often lost with rocker boards. “The biggest thing going off right now is the whole rocker or banana thing,” The Click’s Philip Johnson said. “Every company calls it something different and does it a little bit differently. Some of them have it figured out, some of them don’t. “Some people argue you lose things and you need to have camber in your snowboard to feel certain things, but I say if you’re having fun and if you’re able to do it, who cares what you’re on?” ➤

more opportunities for community members to pursue or complete four-year degree programs at home instead of traveling to the Front Range. “We really felt that this continued to meet the mission we have, which is continuing to offer education to our learners,” she said. Degree programs could include teacher education, nursing, health services administration, business, hospitality management, resort management and environmental studies.

Peter Perhac, CEO of the Alpine Campus in Steamboat Springs, said the four-year degree programs that might work best in Steamboat are resort management, business and teacher education. But he said the college hasn’t determined what programs will be offered where. Perhac said getting a fouryear degree on the Western Slope before was “almost impossible.” Not only would residents be able to complete degrees or pursue a bachelor’s degree to switch

careers, but Steamboat Springs High School students also would be able to stay home for college, he said. Perhac said the four-year degree programs at the Alpine Campus would continue to work with the concurrent enrollment program at the high school.

Club members brought in photos of themselves doing 4-H projects for the “Stars of the Future” tree, which is adorned with more than 40 small picture frames and various star-shaped ornaments. “This is a project the 4-H kids are doing to give back to the community,” said Forest Yeager, High Point 4-H Club leader. “And the stars of the future, the 4-H, they’re the leaders of our future. They’re the stars.” Festival of Trees, a fundraiser for the Tread of Pioneers Museum, was scheduled to open Saturday and can be viewed from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through Nov. 23. Admission for the project, which includes 16 trees decorated by community groups or businesses, is free to all Routt County residents. On Thursday afternoon, community groups filtered into the museum for the final few hours of tree decorating.

Suicide rates high in Colorado, study shows Zach Fridell

Pilot & Today staff

Steamboat Springs

Suicide experts don’t have a clear explanation for why the suicide rate in Colorado is significantly higher than the rest of the country, but a study of suicide rates since 1979 shows that several Colorado counties have among the highest rates in

the nation. Chaffee County, with 31.5 suicides per 100,000 people from 1979 to 2006, ranked the highest among Colorado counties, at No. 14 out of more than 3,000 counties measured. Teller County ranked 23rd, with 29.1. According to the study, compiled by msnbc.com using data from the Centers for Disease

Control and Prevention, Routt County ranked about 940th, with an average rate of 14 suicides per 100,000 people. Suicide prevention coordinators in Routt County routinely note that Northwest Colorado has among the highest suicide rates in the country, and several of Routt’s neighbors appeared high on the list. Moffat County came in

at 211th, with a rate of 19.5, Garfield County was 369th with 17.7, Eagle County was 475th with 16.8 and Rio Blanco was 823rd with 14.6. All numbers are per 100,000 people. Ronna Autrey, suicide prevention coordinator for Reaching Everyone Preventing Suicide, said there are several reasons why rates in Northwest Colorado may be high, but it’s hard to pin

down why neighboring counties have significant differences. “Speculation is large ranching communities (are) isolated with access to guns,” she said. “The economy is certainly affecting things in places like Moffat, but not Grand.” The top five counties by suicide rates are all in Alaska.

Roast the squash on a baking sheet in a preheated, 425-degree oven until it starts to caramelize and soften, about 25 to 30 minutes. Heat a large soup pot over mediumhigh heat. When pot is hot, add remaining olive oil and onions, carrots and celery. Lower heat to medium and saute, stirring regularly so veggies will caramelize but not burn. After 4 to 5 minutes, add sage, then deglaze with white wine vinegar

(deglazing brings everything off the bottom of the pan). Add vegetable stock, roasted squash and garlic. Bring to a simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in cinnamon, remove from heat and blend until smooth (Drunken Onion Chef/Owner Ben Stroock recommends using an immersion blender.) Stir in lemon juice and then stir in heavy cream and season to taste with remaining salt and pepper. Serve sprinkled with chopped Italian parsley, crusty bread and a dollop of creme fraiche, mascarpone or sour cream, if you like.

Stew is perfect food for colder months

E

specially during the colder months, I always love a great stew. And it’s not hard to understand why. Just imagine the ultra-tender, succulent, bite-sized pieces of meat, poultry or seafood, all swimming in flavorful liquid. Every spoonful offers soul-satisfying pleasure. The aromas alone that fill the kitchen as a stew slowly cooks make my mouth water with happy anticipation. But let’s be honest. Achieving an ideal stew usually takes time, something most of us lack in the busy rush of our lives not only on weekdays but often weekends, as well. Who can take several hours out of the day to cook stew? My answer is that anyone and everyone can make stew quickly and easily — if they have a pressure cooker. Now, don’t let those last two words make you anxious. The rumbling, hissing, scary-looking pressure cookers our parents and grandparents used are things of the past. Today’s pressure cookers are safe, quiet, easy, and foolproof. (Though you still should carefully read and follow the instructions that come with yours for the best, safest results.) Use a pressure cooker and you can have a delicious main course like my Moroccan Lamb Stew ready to serve in just about an hour, start to finish. (That doesn’t include leaving the lamb in the refrigerator for several hours to marinate in its spice coating, an optional step that will deepen the already excellent flavor.) Why do I feature lamb in this recipe? Mild, sweet and just slightly gamey, it’s an ideal meat for robust cold-weather eating. Boneless lamb shoulder, used

cooking with

Wolfgang Puck

in this recipe, is relatively inexpensive and widely available in markets, often already cut into chunks for stewing. You could also use lamb shanks. Or substitute a good stewing cut of pork or beef if you prefer. Speaking of substitutions, you can easily transform the nationality of the recipe itself. Replace the cumin with chili powder and the dried fruit with drained canned hominy, for example, and you have a Mexican stew. Or leave out the cumin, add more garlic and some oregano, and substitute pitted black olives and sun-dried tomatoes for the fruit and the stew becomes Italian. You can even change how you cook it. If you don’t want to use a pressure cooker, prepare the stew in a Dutch oven, cooking it in a 325 degrees F. oven until the lamb is tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours, adding the dried fruit for the last 30 minutes or so. Or use a slow cooker, cooking the stew for about 4 hours on the high-heat setting or 8 hours on the lowheat setting. Any way you make it, I promise you the results will be exactly what you want to eat for an autumn-into-winter dinner you’ll love.

Moroccan Lamb Stew Serves 4 to 6 2 pounds boned and trimmed lamb shoulder, cut into 2-inch pieces Salt 2 teaspoons ground cumin

Freshly ground black pepper 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves 1/4 cup olive oil 1 large onion, chopped 1 large organic carrot, peeled and diced 1 organic celery stalk, diced 2 large garlic cloves, sliced 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves 1 cup dry red wine 2 cups organic chicken broth or beef broth 6 ounces peeled, seeded and chopped tomatoes 1/4 pound pitted prunes 1/4 pound dried apricots 1/2 cup blanched almonds, lightly toasted Steamed rice or couscous, for serving Put the lamb in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon pepper, and the thyme. Toss the lamb and knead in the spices. If time allows, transfer the meat to a resealable plastic food storage bag and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. In a large, heavy skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over high heat. Working in batches to avoid crowding, brown the lamb on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes per batch. As the lamb is browned, transfer it to a pressure cooker. Pour off all fat from the skillet and add the remaining oil. Reduce the heat to medium, add the onion, carrot, celery and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and saute until the onion is tender and has colored slightly, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon and scraping the skillet to deglaze the pan deposits. Add the garlic, remaining cumin, and the rosemary and stir for 1 minute; then, add the tomato and continue to cook until the tomato has given up a lot of its juices and begins to stick to the skillet, about 5 minutes. Stir in the wine, raise the heat and bring to a boil, scraping the bottom and sides of the skillet to deglaze the pan deposits. Pour and scrape the contents of the skillet into the pressure cooker. Add the broth, 1 tea-

Red wine adds punch to this savory dish. spoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Secure the pressure cooker lid, set the cooker to “Meat” or an equivalent setting (see the manufacturer’s instruction book), and bring the pressure to high. When high pressure has been reached, set a timer for 22 minutes. When the cooking time is up, turn off the heat and let the pressure return to normal on its own, without using the quick-release valve. When the pressure has returned to normal, use the quick-release valve to make sure all the pressure has been released; then, carefully remove the lid. The lamb should be fork tender. If it is not, bring back to pressure for 5 minutes, turn off the pressure cooker, let the pressure return to normal, and proceed with the recipe. Transfer the meat to the skillet or a casserole. Using a hand blender, puree the sauce. Scrape into the skillet or casserole holding the meat. Add the prunes and apricots and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer gently until the dried fruit is soft, about 15 minutes. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings. Sprinkle with almonds and serve with rice or couscous.

CMC continued from 1D degree they’ll pursue. He said the four-year degree program might expand concurrent enrollment to all high school grades if students know what degree they want to earn. There’s another benefit for Steamboat, Perhac said. “It’s also an economic driver for the town,” he said and added that more students who stay longer could increase revenue generated locally. “And they could possibly pursue careers in Steamboat.” Genova said the college’s hope is that high school students attend CMC campuses for associate’s degrees and are enticed to complete bachelor’s degrees. Or that service would be available for students not in a position financially to transfer to another four-year school, she said. The college still will maintain

its partnerships with other fouryear institutions that would allow students to transfer after completing their associate’s degrees, Genova said. She said the college also would continue to offer its distance learning, or online, courses. The college also will try to maintain its cost per credit hour with the four-year programs, Genova said. Currently, the indistrict students cost is $45 per credit hour, and the cost for students from out of the district is $75 per credit hour. “At CMC, our tuition cost is one of the lowest in the state,” she said. “I would imagine the same thing would happen with bachelor’s degree programs. We really want to make it affordable to community members.” Genova added that she thought the college would be able to accommodate the four-year degree programs without having

So Cunningham accepted the nomination and was sworn in at last week’s meeting. “I am very much looking forward to it,” she said. “We are all working hard to have a K-14 relationship in the community. I think that could enhance that.” The Board of Trustees has seven at-large seats representing counties including Eagle, Lake, Pitkin, Routt and Summit. The board also includes a representative from East Garfield and West Garfield County.

From the Friday, Nov. 16, 1934, edition of The Steamboat Pilot The Armistice Day football game between Hayden and Steamboat Springs high school teams attracted the largest attendance of any game played this year on the local field. For a few minutes, there was a congestion of cars going over the bridge, the long line extending nearly a block this side of the bridge. Alertness and nimbleness were required of those who were collecting at the two gates entering the field. Gerald McGuire and his junior band gave the one touch of real celebration for Armistice Day, with music and marching up and down Lincoln Avenue preceding the game. The band pepped up the teams and the audience with selections between pauses. The Hayden football team was accompanied by a large

While these big brutes weighed a lot, they were not very well-equipped with brains, though they had two, one part being in the skull where it ought to be and the other being at the base of the spinal column. Scientists tell us that some of the largest dinosaurs are known to have brains about the size of a 6-week-old kitten.

Joke of the week A little boy went to Sunday school to learn about the 10 Commandments. After he got home, he told his mom all about it. His mom started quizzing him and said, “Well one com-

mandment says ‘Honor thy father and thy mother,’ but what commandment applies to your brother and sister? The little boy thought for a moment and said, “Thou shall not kill.”

Libraries turn a page with high-tech amenities Cyndee Fontana

McClatchy Newspapers

FRESNO, Calif.

At Fresno State’s new Henry Madden Library, the whirr of a blender and hum of conversation are the sounds of evolution. Here, visitors eat, drink and speak above a whisper. Trade ideas. Polish off a sandwich. Sip a latte — heck, they’ll make it for you at the in-house Starbucks. In short, this isn’t your parents’ library. More and more, university libraries are ditching their quiet-please personas to embrace the art of noise. It’s not a complete transformation — librar-

ies still stake out quiet study areas — but a clear nod to a generation that loves caffeine, cell phones, laptops and Facebook. Today, libraries have invited in cafés, installed comfy chairs and sofas, relaxed the ban on food and chatter and even hung flatscreen video monitors. Competition from more-casual bookstores has driven some moves. Experts say physical and atmospheric changes dovetail with social trends and technological advances. For example, some libraries have moved little-used book collections to devote more prime real estate for purposes such as computer

work stations and collaborative study areas. Fresno State’s new library — which underwent a $105 million, 2-year expansion — opened in February and is an example of the modernization trend. Peter McDonald, dean of library services, said the library “needs to provide more today than just quiet space.” Authorities often use renovation or new construction to reshape a library’s space plan and ambience. Lori Goetsch, president of the Association of College and Research Libraries, said libraries evolve with the times. There are about 1,350 academic libraries around the country on

campuses that grant bachelor’s or higher-level degrees. Libraries “aren’t always viewed in society as institutions that are quick to change ... but I think more and more we are becoming the change agents on campus,” said Goetsch, dean of libraries at Kansas State University in Manhattan. Part of that is driven by technology. Laptop computers demand more electrical outlets. New editions of scientific journals are available electronically. Books are being translated into the digital world. And — thanks to computers and the Internet — students don’t have to set foot in the library to use it.

Health official: To combat winter blues, avoid isolation Suicide continued from 1D two areas, the Wade Hampton and Yukon-Koyukuk Census areas, have rates higher than 100 suicides per 100,000 people. Colorado overall is sixth highest in suicide rates, according to a “Preventing Suicide in Colorado” study by The Colorado Trust. “While the state’s average annual suicide rate has declined 6.5 percent subsequent to 1998, with 15.7 deaths by suicide per 100,000 persons in Colorado, it

remains significantly above the national average of 11 deaths per 100,000 persons,” the report states.

Seasonal concerns John Fleeker, county director for Steamboat Mental Health, said the seasons also play a role in affecting mental health in the Yampa Valley. He said that because Steamboat Springs gets enough sunlight throughout the year, devices such as UV lights may not be as necessary as in places such as Alaska.

“So what we see here probably is more lack of resources, getting snowed in, not being able to do a lot of activities out of your home because of the snow on the roads other than skiing, and not everyone skis,” he said. Fleeker said mental health professionals tend to see a spike in their caseload in January, after the winter has set in and the holidays have passed. To combat the winter blues, Fleeker said it’s best to combine physical and mental activities by exercising in the house,

organizing, playing board games and staying active. “It’s important to not isolate yourself ” and to spend time with a social group, he said. As the first heavy snowfall of the year blanketed the Steamboat area, Fleeker said that it’s important to not allow the weather to blanket spirits, as well. “It’s really about being creative, finding things to do that are more physical,” he said. — To reach Zach Fridell, call 871-4208 or e-mail zfridell@steamboatpilot.com
