Airport vendor expands Chuck­Wagon operator asked to open temporary secure-area eatery Jack Weinstein



Limited in what they can do with Yampa Valley Regional Airport’s two primary eateries because of a contract dispute, officials are getting creative as the travel season reaches fever pitch. Airport Manager Dave Ruppel said Monday that he has asked Charlie Epp, owner of Charlie’s ChuckWagon, to expand his main terminal breakfast operation to offer a full menu of food choices. Ruppel said he hopes to have Epp selling food within the airport’s secure area by the end of the week. Until then, he said the gift shop in the secure area would offer sandwiches. Last week, Routt County, which operates the airport, shut down HDN Paradise Bar & Grill and Hot Dog’n Paradise because of contract issues with operator Trini Riley. Riley hasn’t returned numerous phone messages requesting comment. Ruppel said Monday that Riley had several default issues with her contract. She has provided food services at the airport for more than two years. Ruppel said the issues include failure to make monthly payments and not having the required liability insurance for the second floor restaurant and hot dog stand, See Airport, page 13

Storm hits Steamboat

Heavy snow through Friday; YVRA f lights affected Mike Lawrence



A Pacific storm called the Pineapple Express will continue to dump heavy on Steamboat Springs and create difficult travel conditions for much of the week. On Monday, the storm prevented some flights from landing at Yampa Valley Regional Airport

and left area roads hard to navigate. The snow is expected to continue through Friday morning. As much as 3 feet could fall by then on the slopes of Mount Werner and other areas of higher elevation in Northwest Colorado, National Weather Service meteorologist Jeff Colton said. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning

Holiday Wishes meets need Annual United Way program to serve 316 families this year Jack Weinstein

During a year in which the need for Routt County United Way’s Holiday Wishes program increased by 86 families, so too did the community’s response. Routt County United Way Executive Director Kelly Stanford said Holiday Wishes, which matches volunteer donors with families who wouldn’t otherwise receive gifts during the holiday season, served 316 families — including 541 children — this year. That’s up from the 230 families served last year. “Because of the generosity of the community, every family that came to us is receiving help,” she said. “We’re really excited about that.” Stanford said families that wanted to be recipients signed up for the Holiday Wishes program in November through one of

several local health and human service agencies they work with on a regular basis. Each member of a family can be signed up for a necessity item, such as winter clothing, and a small gift or toy. Stanford said the United Way recommends that donors spend $50 per family member, though they sometimes go above that threshold. After families sign up, Stanford said the United Way matches them with donors in late November and early December. She said donors then return the gifts to the local health and human service organization, which distributes them to the families. This year, 92 donor groups — including a mix of individuals and businesses — contributed, Stanford said. She said one of those, the annual United Way Holiday Wishes Party at Rex’s American Grill & Bar, provided

gifts for 57 families. Owner Rex Brice said the party, which provides free food and drink to anyone who comes with a wrapped gift for Holiday Wishes, started as a gathering of friends who decided to adopt a family instead of giving one another gifts. “As it’s gotten bigger, the holiday party is in part a thank you to all the people who participate,” he said. “It means that even in these tough times, we have people in this community willing to look beyond their own challenges and help out people in more need than themselves.” To illustrate just how much the need has increased, Routt County Department of Human Services Director Vickie Clark said most of her agency’s programs have doubled in size. “Every public assistance program except for the Child See United Way, page 3

Care Assistance Program has increased since I arrived in May 2008,” she said. “The good news is we’re getting people the benefits they’re eligible for. The bad news is there are more people eligible for them.” Clark said the Child Care Assistance Program hasn’t grown because the county instituted a wait list because there hasn’t been enough funding to support all eligible families. Stanford said everyone who signed up to receive gifts should get them before Christmas. She thanked the members of the community who participated in Holiday Wishes. “This time of year we are truly thankful for their generosity during the holidays, but the needs of these families continue year-round,” Stanford said. “The human service organizations that provide services create a safety net for the rest of the year.

Michele Dunklin remains in intensive care at a Denver hospital, but friends say she is very responsive and doing much better following a Dec. 8 car accident on U.S. Highway 40 near Hayden. “She’s doing very well,” Teresa Luber said Mon­ day. “She’s defi­ nitely on the road Dunklin to recovery.” Luber visited Dunklin during the weekend and plans to return Wednesday to see her friend of 25 years. Luber said she and Dunklin moved to Steamboat Springs from California together years ago, before both met their future husbands. The two are co-work­ ers at Vectra Bank, where Luber is branch service manager and Dunklin is a longtime teller. Luber said Dunklin has no head trauma, brain damage

or loss of memory. Luber said Dunklin now has much less need for a ventilator that she was using for breathing assis­ tance at Denver Health Medical Center. “It’s going to be definitely a long, slow road, but compared to what she was dealing with at the very beginning of this, we feel that she’s made better prog­ ress than what was expected in the beginning,” Luber said. “They’re really hoping for a complete recovery,” she said. Dunklin, 47, was driving back to Steamboat after shopping in Craig when she tried to pass a semitrailer on U.S. 40 outside Hayden and hit a pickup headon. Many of her organs were damaged, and she broke 22 ribs. The two people in other vehicles in the accident were not seri­ ously injured. See Dunklin, page 5

Co-worker: Dunklin generally in good spirits Dunklin continued from 4 Dunklin underwent several surgeries and is stable, but doctors initially told friends and family to be prepared for things to get worse before they got better. “She’s very responsive, but mostly with her eyes and moving her arms and such,” Luber said. “She can’t really speak yet, but she does mouth words. If you can read lips, we can understand what she’s saying.” Luber said Dunklin writes notes and generally is in good spirits. “She’s quite a go-getter when she’s 100 percent, so I think she’s getting a little frustrated that she can’t do things,” Luber said. Luber said Dunklin could be released from ICU and transferred to Yampa Valley Medical Center for the rest of her recovery “maybe in the next two weeks or so.” Dunklin is married to Steve Dunklin, general sales manag-

er at Cook Chevrolet, Jeep & Subaru. Steve Dunklin and their 14-year-old son, Zach, have been mainstays at Michele’s bedside, along with other family members and friends. Luber said Dunklin’s absence is felt in Steamboat. “She’s really, really missed at the bank, by customers and employees alike. The concern from the community has been remarkable,” Luber said. “I think the community will really be able to get more involved when she comes home. We’ll continue to keep people updated on that.” West Routt Fire Protection District Chief Bryan Rickman was one of the first on the accident scene. He pulled Dunklin from her Chevrolet Trailblazer so he, Dal Leck and Bryan Birch could get her to YVMC. Rickman visited Dunklin at Denver Health on Friday. Rickman said he’s been friends with Steve Dunklin for about 15 years but didn’t know Michele before the accident.

To help A fund for the Dunklin family has been set up at Vectra Bank in Steamboat Springs. Donations are accepted at both of its Steamboat locations. Branch service manager Teresa Luber said Vectra Bank also has created a journal for people to write well-wishes and notes that are read to Michele Dunklin at Denver Health Medical Center. Luber said customers and other members of the public are welcome to ask about Dunklin at Vectra Bank. “We’re more than happy to talk about her condition and give everybody the latest updates,” Luber said. Luber said she also can answer questions at her direct line at 970-870-4220. Family friend Michelle Diehl has set up a blog at www.micheledunklin. to let people know how Dunklin is doing.

Compromise brings more spending Cal Thomas


The Republican congressional leadership congratulated itself for leading nine “moderate” GOP senators away from a cliff and back to solid footing by persuading them not to vote with Democrats on a 1,924page, $1.2 trillion omnibus spending bill that has more pork in it than a pig farm. Instead, most Repub­ licans went along with another bill, which Thomas President Barack Obama quickly signed last Friday. It preserves the Bush-era tax rates, but also perpetuates the cycle of debt and spending that contributed to America’s current economic difficulties. Rep. Frank Wolf R-Va., voted against the measure, not because he wanted everyone’s taxes to go up on

Jan. 1, but for more important reasons. Wolf characterized the deal struck between the White House and Republican and reluctant Democratic congressional leaders as a “handout,” not a compromise. He said the bill, which, if usual procedure was followed, probably was read by no one except the staff members who wrote it, contains hundreds of billions of dollars in new spending for such dubious things as ethanol production, railroad maintenance and Hollywood film producers. The 2 percent tax “holiday” for one year on Social Security payroll taxes further undermines that program at a time when the so-called “trust fund” is headed for insolvency. If lower taxes are good for stimulating the economy, as Obama now claims after recently saying just the opposite, why not make current tax rates permanent and reform the indecipherable tax code? Obama has

pledged to do the latter while, opposing the former. The answer is that it would put more money and power into the hands of the people — something liberal Democrats think would weaken their influence and power. Moody’s Investment Service has warned that the tax legislation might jeopardize America’s AAA bond rating. Such a decision would signal to investors that this country is less of a good credit risk. Wolf says the tax compromise deal will cost “nearly a trillion dollars in borrowed money.” Sen. Tom Coburn R-Okla., said, “both parties have set a trap for future generations by our inaction, our laziness, our arrogance, and a crass desire for power. We are water-boarding the next generation with debt.” “The public be damned” is the attitude of the majority in this expiring Congress. Election results don’t matSee Thomas, page 9

When zombie ideas win Paul Krugman


When historians look back at 200810, what will puzzle them most, I think, is the strange triumph of failed ideas. Free-market fundamentalists have been wrong about everything — yet they now dominate the political scene more thoroughly than ever. How did that happen? How, after runaway banks brought the economy to its knees, did we end up with Ron Paul, who says Krugman “I don’t think we need regulators,” about to take over a key House panel overseeing the Fed? How, after the experiences of the Clinton and Bush administrations — the first raised taxes and presided over spectacular job growth; the second cut taxes and presided over anemic growth


even before the crisis — did we end up with bipartisan agreement on even more tax cuts? The answer from the right is that the economic failures of President Barack Obama’s administration show that biggovernment policies don’t work. But the response should be, what big-government policies? For the fact is that the Obama stimulus — which itself was almost 40 percent tax cuts — was far too cautious to turn the economy around. And that’s not 20-20 hindsight: Many economists, myself included, warned from the beginning that the plan was grossly inadequate. Put it this way: A policy under which government employment actually fell, under which government spending on goods and services grew more slowly than during the Bush years, hardly constitutes a test of Keynesian economics. Now, maybe it wasn’t possible for Obama to get more in the face of con-

gressional skepticism about government. But even if that’s true, it only demonstrates the continuing hold of a failed doctrine over our politics. It’s also worth pointing out that everything the right said about why Obamanomics would fail was wrong. For two years, we’ve been warned that government borrowing would send interest rates sky-high. In fact, rates have fluctuated with optimism or pessimism about recovery, but stayed consistently low by historical standards. For two years, we’ve been warned that inflation, even hyperinflation, was just around the corner. Instead, disinflation has continued, with core inflation — which excludes volatile food and energy prices — now at a half-century low. But such failures don’t seem to matter. To borrow the title of a recent book by the Australian economist John See Krugman, page 9 Bruce Tinsley

ter. All that matters is what the lame duck liberals can push through bills at the last moment, often without hearings and with no amendments allowed from the Republican minority. Michelle Obama wants to wean obese children from junk food and encourage them to eat foods that will make them healthier. Where are the leaders to wean us from junk programs that have caused severe economic harm and addiction to government? Early next month, 108 new

members of Congress will take the oath of office and swear to uphold the Constitution. The question is: which Constitution? Will it be the one written by the Founders, which has sustained us for two centuries? Or, will it be the one that is being ripped to shreds by activist courts and out-of-control legislators who have concluded that grand document means only what they and the judges decide it means? In families that overspend and are weighed down with debt, there often comes a “we

can’t go on like this” epiphany followed by a decision to reduce spending and be content with less. Not so with our government. No matter the threat debt poses for our economic future, these so-called “representatives” largely represent only themselves and their interests. To channel folk singer Pete Seeger: “we are neck-deep in the Big Muddy, but the big fools say to push on.” Let’s see if the 108 can lead us out of the muck and back toward solvency. Hope springs eternal, even at the start of a Washington winter.

hailing the tax-cut deal as a boost to the economy — but Republicans already are talking about spending cuts that would offset any positive effects from the deal. And how effectively can he oppose these demands, when he himself has embraced the rhetoric of belttightening? Yes, politics is the art of the possible. We all understand the need to deal with one’s political enemies. But it’s one thing to make deals to advance your goals; it’s another to open the door to zombie ideas. When you do that, the zombies end up eating your brain — and quite possibly your economy, too.

Quiggin on doctrines that the crisis should have killed but didn’t, we’re still — perhaps more than ever — ruled by “zombie economics.” Why? Part of the answer, surely, is that people who should have been trying to slay zombie ideas have tried to compromise with them instead. And this is especially, though not only, true of the president. People tend to forget that Ronald Reagan often gave ground on policy substance — most notably, he ended up enacting multiple tax increases. But he never wavered on ideas, never backed down from the

position that his ideology was right and his opponents were wrong. Obama, by contrast, has consistently tried to reach across the aisle by lending cover to right-wing myths. He has praised Reagan for restoring American dynamism, adopted GOP rhetoric about the need for the government to tighten its belt even in the face of recession and offered symbolic freezes on spending and federal wages. None of this stopped the right from denouncing him as a socialist. But it helped empower bad ideas, in ways that can do quite immediate harm. Right now, Obama is

Winter Hexagon stars some of the brightest in the sky



You can spot the seven stars of the Winter Hexagon high in the eastern sky on any clear night after 9 .pm. Neither bright moonlight nor city lights can hide these bright stars.

“Dog Star” because it represents the nose of Orion’s big hunting dog, Canis Major. Sirius is the brightest and closest of the seven stars in the Winter Hexagon at a distance of only nine light years. From Sirius, shoot a line to the upper right and find the bright blue star that marks the foot of Orion the Hunter, the star Rigel. Rigel looks nearly as bright as Sirius, but it’s located 100 times farther away at 900 light years. If Rigel were viewed from the same distance as Sirius,

it would shine like a second sun in our sky, visible in daylight. To the upper right of Rigel is the orange giant star Aldebaran, marking the eye of Taurus the Bull. Aldebaran is 68 light years away. Continue from Aldebaran by extending a line nearly overhead to the second-brightest star in the Winter Hexagon, Capella, a yellow-giant star in Auriga, the Charioteer. Capella is a mere 45 light years away. Although it looks like a single star to the

naked eye, astronomers have discovered that it is composed of the light from four different stars. Dropping down from Capella toward the eastern horizon will lead you to a pair of bright stars, the Gemini Twins of Cast­or and Pollux. Castor is 52 light years distant and is not only the fainter of the twins, but is the faintest star in the Winter Hexagon, as well. Pollux is considerably closer to us at 35 light years away. The Hexagon continues to the southeast of the Gemini Twins to the star Procyon. This star’s name means “Before the Dog,” and it is aptly named because it rises in our sky just before the Dog Star, Sirius, appears. Procyon, like Sirius, is a nearby star, only 11 light years away. Close the Winter Hexagon

by shooting a line from Procyon back to Sirius where we started. As if having seven of the sky’s brightest stars in one spot weren’t enough, we easily can add an eighth. Near the center of the Winter Hexagon is the red supergiant star Betelgeuse that marks the shoulder of Orion. Betelgeuse is very far away, at a distance of 520 light years, and is so large that it would fill the orbit of the planet Jupiter if placed in our solar system.

t’s popularly known as the Winter Circle, but the Winter Hexagon would be a more descriptive name. The Winter Circle spotlights eight of the 20 brightest stars in earthly skies — and five of these are in the top 10: Sirius, Capella, Rigel, Jimmy Westlake Procyon CELESTIAL NEWS and Betelgeuse. The Milky Way slices right through the heart of the hexagon, and it’s flanked by two of the sky’s most beautiful nakedeye star clusters — the Pleiades cluster leads the way as the Winter Hexagon marches across the heavens, and the Praesepe cluster brings up the rear. This magnificent asterism makes a superb starting point for folks trying to learn their way around the starry sky. You can locate the first star in the Winter Hexagon by extending a line through the familiar three stars of Orion’s Belt to the lower left. The flashy star you come to is Sirius, nicknamed the

Ruppel said because the county had no plans to solicit bids for a permanent concession vendor, the second floor restaurant won’t operate this season. He said a new restaurant, under construction on the first floor outside security, is planned to open by the 2011-12 ski season.

which is located within the first floor secure area. Ruppel said he worked with Riley to correct the issues, but she didn’t comply. Riley’s contract was up at the end of the ski season. Because the county plans to submit a request for proposals this spring, a process that could take months to complete, Ruppel said Epp was asked to expand his role. “Since he already has a contract with us to provide food service, it’s very easy for me to amend his contract to add more service,” he said. “If I go after another food vendor, I have to go through the RFP process, according to county policy. For something that’s temporary like this, it’s much easier for me to handle it this way.” Ruppel said Riley owns the equipment in the restaurant and hot dog stand. He said she has until Thursday to remove it. Epp, who also operates C’s Catering in Hayden, has served food at the airport for 20 years, including 17 years catering for the airlines. He previously offered a full menu from his Charlie’s ChuckWagon two years ago. Epp submitted a proposal to operate the restaurant and securearea eatery, but Riley was chosen instead. After a year absence from the airport, Epp said he was asked to return to offer espresso, lattes, muffins, rolls, breakfast burritos and breakfast sandwiches.

In the secure area, Epp said he would like to offer a menu that includes barbecue beef, barbecue pork, elk bratwurst, buffalo bratwurst, Chicago-style hot dogs, burritos, sandwiches, homemade soups, chips, snacks and beverages. “I believe it’s really important to put a good taste, and that’s not a pun intended, in the mouths of people who are leaving Steamboat,” Epp said Monday. “That’s the last contact that they have with this area until they come back for another vacation.

NHL Scores from Monday’s games

Page 18



Bears fly past Vikings to 40-14 victory Dave Campbell



Brett Favre was bundled up in a heavy gray coat by the time Devin Hester sped through the snow with his record-setting return. Favre’s surprise start ended with another injury, perhaps putting him out for good, and the game ended with an NFC North title for the Chicago Bears. Hester set the NFL record with his 14th kick return touchdown, running back a punt 64 yards for a score shortly after halftime to help the Bears fly past the Minnesota Vikings 40-14 on a frosty, hard-hitting Monday night. Jay Cutler threw three touchdown passes for the Bears (10-4), who last won this division during their 2006 Super Bowl season. Hester caught one of those scoring tosses and also took back the second-half kickoff 79 yards to set up a field goal a few minutes before his punt return made it 27-7. That was Hester’s 14th career return touchdown, kickoff or punt, breaking Brian Mitchell’s previous mark. Favre finished 5 for 7 for 63 yards, and the Vikings (5-9) fell apart in front of their proud alumni in town for the franchise’s 50th-anniversary celebration featuring all kinds of blasts from the past. With the Metrodome unusable because of a roof collapse, the game got moved to the University of Minnesota. TCF Bank Stadium was about 80 percent full, with snowballs flying from the seats — sometimes hitting players — and plenty of frolicking in the flakes. Former Vikings coach Bud Grant jogged around the field at halftime in a short-sleeve purple shirt, getting carried off by some of his former players after an inspired ceremony.


Alpine snowboarder Tyler Jewell, who trained with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club for several years, races down the giant slalom course Monday afternoon during the Race to the Cup snowboarding race at Howelsen Hill.

Austrians dominate slopes Howelsen Hill hosts 1st Race to the Cup snowboarding event John F. Russell



Steamboat Springs might be known across the world as Ski Town USA, but on Monday night, it was the Austrians who felt right at home on Howelsen Hill’s steep pitches. The Austrian men’s snowboard team swept the podium and the women’s squad took two out of three steps on the podi-

um during the Race to the Cup NorAm parallel giant slalom. American Vic Wild and Swit­­ zerland’s Patrizia Kummer were the only riders to threaten the Austrians during a race held in difficult conditions and a steady dumping of snow. But the Austrians took first, second and third in the men’s finals behind a top showing from Benjamin Karl, who knocked out Americans Tyler Jewell in the quarterfinals and

Wild in the semifinals. Karl’s teammates Anton Unterkofler finished second, and Andreas Prommegger took third. Wild still had a shot at the podium in the small finals but was unable to catch Prommegger on his final run. Wild let his anger show by throwing his board to the snow after his race, but the anger was directed at himself. “You know, I could have had a good night,” Wild said. “I know I’m one of the best riders in the

world, and with a bit more support, I feel like I could have beat those guys tonight. I’m pissed off at myself that I didn’t do it. I think I could have done better.” The Austrians also dominated on the women’s side with Julia Dujmovits leading the way in the finals. She beat teammate Heidi Neururer to win the competition. The Austrians knocked several American riders out of See Race to the Cup, page 17

Nasty weather cuts Holiday Classic short John F. Russell



Mother Nature isn’t in a giving spirit this week — or maybe she’s simply being too generous to Steamboat Ski Area. On Monday, Deb Armstrong, the Alpine competitive program director for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, said the final races of the 2010

Surefoot Steamboat Holiday Classic at Steamboat Ski Area have been cancelled. “The races were cancelled because of snow surface conditions,” Armstrong said Monday. She said the huge amount of snow that fell Monday and the forecast for more snow Tuesday night factored into the decision. Armstrong said the snow and the uncertain surface under the snow would have made it dan-

gerous for the men’s giant slalom race, which was scheduled for today. The women’s giant slalom race, which had been moved from Monday to today because of weather, also has been cancelled. The Surefoot Steamboat Holiday Classic is an FIS-level race for skiers trying to climb the ladder to the U.S. national team, and a chance for top-level collegiate racers to pick up experience

and points during the holidays. The Steamboat races also have drawn U.S. Ski Team members in the past who are looking to sharpen their skills. The weather isn’t expected to impact today’s U.S. Freestyle Ski Team selections that are scheduled to take place on Mayer’s Mogul Run on Voo Doo or the final day of the Race to the Cup NorAm Alpine snowboarding races at Howelsen Hill.

The Denver Broncos starting quarterback Tim Tebow makes a throw against the Oakland Raiders in Oakland, Calif., on Sunday. Interim coach Eric Studesville announced Monday that Tebow will start again next week again the Houston Texans.

“I think they’ll certainly have tape on him now to have a game plan,” Studesville said. “What they’ll do differently ... we’re going to do some things differently because we’ll have more information on him too, now. So, how that all plays out I’m not exactly sure.”

the finals, including Steamboat’s Madeline Wiencke, who lost to Dujmovits in the first round of the finals. Lynn Ott fell to Neururer in the round of 16, and the Austrian also ousted Heather Herde in the round of eight. But Switzerland’s Kummer came closest to slipping past the Austrians. She lost a close race to Neururer in the semifinals, but rebounded to beat Austrian Sabine Schoeffmann. As a team, the Austrians qualified seven riders for the wom-

en’s finals. The United States and Canada each had three riders in the finals. Switzerland had two, and Germany had one. On the men’s side, the Austrians sent six riders to the finals, with Canada a close second with five. Switzerland and Japan each had one. Steamboat rider Michael Trapp joined Wild and Jewell in the finals to give the Americans three slots. Trapp, an up-and-coming rider with the U.S. team, nearly won his first round in the finals, but the difficult conditions at Howelsen gave the more experienced Unterkofler

a slight advantage. “I was hoping to make it through the first round (of the finals), but my first run got a little bumpy and a little hectic going down. It was a complete rodeo tonight,” Trapp said. “On the second run I was just going for it and missed by just a few tenths.” The international field will return this morning for the parallel slalom race. The event will be the final stop of the Race to the Cup NorAm in Steamboat. Qualifying races are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., and the finals are slated for 1 p.m. at Howelsen.

So now the Texans don’t have to worry about preparing for two quarterbacks, one a right-handed prolific passer and the other a rookie southpaw. Studesville thought the benefit to the Broncos outweighed any concerns about the Texans knowing it.

The Denver Broncos don’t care if everyone knows it, including the Houston Texans: Tim Tebow will start again Sunday. Rather than keep everybody guessing, interim coach Eric Studesville made the unusual move Monday of announcing that Tebow would be under center when the Broncos (3-10) host the Texans (5-9). Studesville said Kyle Orton is still bothered by bruised ribs and that Tebow did a good job managing the game plan, the team and the crowd in his first NFL start Sunday despite Denver’s 39-23 loss at Oakland. “Well, the reason right now was that we felt that Tim played well yesterday, ran our offense effectively,” Studesville said. “Compounding that was the fact that Kyle still was rehabbing ... and we just felt like prolonging this later into the week wasn’t the best thing for our preparation and practice.”

Daily Horoscope by Eugenia Last Tuesday, Dec. 21, 2010 CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Kiefer Sutherland, 44; Ray Romano, 53; Samuel L. Jackson, 62; Jane Fonda, 73 Happy Birthday: Don’t take on responsibilities that do not belong to you. You must be firm about what you will and will not do this year if you want to move forward with the projects, people and interests that are most important. Cut back in some areas so you can nurture the friendships and relationships that mean the most to you. Your numbers are 4, 6, 18, 20, 26, 32, 44 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let the little things get to you. Anger is a waste of time. If you really want to get to the bottom of something that is bothering you, open, honest communication is all that’s required. HH TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Think about what might please you and you will come up with the perfect surprise for someone you love. Lots of traveling about and communication with friends and relatives will help you firm up your plans for end-of-year festivities. HHHH GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take care of money matters and the little things that you promised to do for others. Set your goals for the upcoming year. Tell someone special exactly how you feel. Touch base with people you don’t get to see often. HHH CANCER (June 21-July 22): Emot­ions will surface and greater involvement with your peers, friends and lover will help raise your spirits. A makeover or purchasing something that will boost your confidence or make you feel particularly good should be scheduled for late in the day. HHH LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone will be easily offended if you aren’t sensitive about a recent situation. A secret meeting or talks will leave you in a difficult position if someone asks you specifically to discuss such matters. Use your imagination to avoid direct answers. HHH VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t look back or worry about what’s already

HHHH LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Stick to what you know and do best. Refrain from letting someone you live with pressure you into something you don’t feel right about doing. A love relationship from your past will remind you of a situation you are facing now.

Don’t let an old partner back into your life when you should be moving forward. It’s time to develop new relationships. HHH PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Uncertainty will lead to a poor decision regarding work. Don’t make a move that is based on false assumptions. Focus on home, family and your personal life. Good fortune, gifts and positive results will come your way. HHHHH Birthday Baby: You are sensitive and will internalize what others say and do. You are serious about your goals and stand by your word. You are intent on doing what’s best. 2010 UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

made it to Hayden. Other good news was harder to find by the time he left the airport in the afternoon. Smith said Frontier Airlines canceled a YVRA flight Monday while one United flight, a Delta Airlines flight and an American Airlines flight from Chicago were delayed or diverted. Airport Manager Dave Ruppel said visibility was hit or miss in the blowing snow. “The runway is in good condition. Everything’s plowed,” he said. “We’re ready for (planes) to be here, but if they can’t see, they can’t land.” West Routt Fire Protection District Chief Bryan Rickman said accidents on West Routt roadways were minimal, though, as of the afternoon. “We haven’t had any calls at all,” Rickman said Monday afternoon. “It’s been very slow for us, which is great. “People are understanding how bad the roads really are and are taking it slow,” he continued. The Weather Service’s assessment of the storm Sunday called for 3 to 6 feet on Mount Werner this week, with a cold front that could stop the storm Wednesday,

but Colton revised that forecast Monday from the Grand Junction office. “In the Steamboat area, you’re on the edge of the deepest moisture plume,” he said. “You’re not going to see the 6 to 8 feet that we’re expecting down toward Crested Butte and those areas. …We’ve had reports already around Crested Butte of 30 to 50 inches in some areas.” The Weather Service storm warning stated the highest snow totals will occur well south of Steamboat, but the warning includes all of western Colorado and doesn’t mince words. “Heavy snowfall of epic proportions will continue and projections indicate that the storm will last through Thursday,” it states. “Very moist and mild southwestto-west flow will bring a prolonged period of heavy snow to the higher mountains of eastern Utah and western Colorado. Heavy snow accumulations are expected above 9,000 feet with the highest amounts on southwest- to west-facing slopes.” The warning advised that road closures could occur and urged caution while traveling. “Traveling over the mountain passes will become nearly impossible at times,” it states.

“Plan on road closures and have alternative plans if the mountain passes do not stay open.” Colton noted that it snowed in Craig and Meeker for much of Monday, while rain fell in Aspen and Vail. But he said Steamboat will continue seeing one or the other well into Friday. Colton said the high water content, heavy snow often is referred to as “Sierra Cement.” But he said Northwest Colo­ rado’s temperatures could bring some Champagne Powder. “You guys are a little bit colder, so you’ll probably get a better quality of snow,” Colton said. This week’s storm comes in time for the opening of Steamboat Ski Area’s Pony Express lift, which is planned for Friday. Trails accessible by Pony Express, however, are open by hiking, ski area spokesman Mike Lane said. Lane said as of today, 99.5 percent of the ski area’s terrain is open. Lower Valley View and Yoo Hoo open today. Holiday vacationers who make it to Steamboat Springs should have plenty of snow to enjoy on that new terrain. “I’m looking on satellite and moisture is stretched all the way back into the Pacific, so it’s not going to stop,” Colton said.
