MCHS girls basketball plays Thompson Valley today in 2nd round of state playoffs BY JOSHUA GORDON DAILY PRESS WRITER

Annie Sadvar said playoff basketball is faster, more physical and overall has a more competitive feel to it. Sadvar, a Moffat County High School senior, will help lead the MCHS girls varsity basketball team into a second-round match-up with Thompson Valley at 5 p.m. today at Centaurus High School. The sixth-seeded Eagles (16-8) beat No. 11 Frederick,

If you go ... What: Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team v. Thompson Valley High School in the second round of the 4A state playoffs When: 5 p.m. today Where: Centaurus High School, 10300 East South Boulder Rd., in Lafayette — Admission is $6 for adults and $5 for students

57-28, on Wednesday in the first round, advancing to take on the Bulldogs. Sadvar said Thursday was the only day Moffat County had

to solely focus on Thompson Valley, but they feel prepared. “We worked on more basic stuff earlier in the week, but (Thursday) was the first day we really got to put an emphasis on what Thompson Valley does,” she said. “We don’t know really what to expect, but a basketball team can only have a few strong points, like a 3-point shooter or a strong post, so we prepared to defend all that.” The third-seeded Bulldogs (17-6) had a bye in the first round of the Brenda House

Region. Head coach Matt Ray said statistically, the Bulldogs are a better team, but it isn’t that simple in the playoffs. “Thompson Valley’s best player is in the post, so we need to try and double team her and get some help from our wing players,” Ray said. “If Annie, Kori (Finneman) or Bailey (Hellander) can match-up in the post one-on-one, we can do that, but we don’t want them to get a free for all down there.

THE MOFFAT COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL girls varsity basketball team takes on Thompson Valley at 5 p.m. today in the second round of the 4A state playoffs at Centaurus High School. Head coach Matt Ray said his players need to be patient on offense and look for the best available shot.

Moffat County Republicans turned out in droves Feb. 7 for the statewide precinct caucuses, the most grassroots form of the political process in Colorado, organizers said. In addition to participating in a statewide presidential preference poll, caucus participants also elected precinct chairpersons. KC Hume, Moffat County Republican Party chairman, announced the precinct chairs over the weekend. “For the most part, the precinct chairs are the same people,” Hume said. “But we did get some new additions this year.” Similar to county assembly delegates, precinct chairpersons can volunteer for the position or be nominated by another precinct member. Joe Ence, Precinct 1 co-chairperson, is one of the newcomers nominated for the job by his peers. He said he has been a delegate to the county assembly in the past, but has never served on the Moffat County Republican Central Committee.

The Moffat County School Board unanimously accepted the resignation of a longtime administrator Thursday night. Bill Toovey will step down as Craig Middle School’s principal at the end of the 201112 school year and head into a future yet unknown. “We’re just Bill Toovey framing up our options and we’ll decide down the road,” he said before Thursday’s meeting. His last day is June 30. His resignation was packaged in a consent agenda that passed without comment, but Superintendent Joe Petrone paused before the end of the meeting to recognize Toovey’s pending departure. “Your resignation didn’t go unnoticed,” Petrone said. “Your contributions have been … stellar, and we appreciate everything you’ve done for the chil-

At its workshop Thursday, the Moffat County School Board: • Discussed an MOU with the Rangely School District in which Moffat County School District helped cover transportation costs for students in Dinosaur who chose to attend Rangely schools. The MOU expired, and Superintendent Joe Petrone recommended not renewing it, given the school district’s tight budget. Board President Sandie Johns said she “totally agreed to go this route. … We’ve done our part.” At its regular meeting Thursday, the Moffat County School Board: • Heard a report from Assistant Superintendent Brent Curtice on curriculum alignment across the district. • Approved, 3-2, changes to the school district’s dress code policy. Johns and board member J.B. Chapman voted against the measure, citing concerns about policies that allow Moffat County High School students to wear hats in class if teachers permit it. • Approved, 5-0, changes to the school district’s home-based education policy. Note: Board members Sherry St. Louis and Lawrence Sober were absent.

dren here,” he said. Toovey, who declined to comment on why he’s leaving the district, tendered his resignation in a letter to the school board

dated Feb. 5. “I wish my colleagues, along with the Moffat County School District, only the best,” he said in the letter. “I am and will be forever grateful for the opportunity and humbled by the faith the MCSD ‘family’ has afforded me.” Toovey leaves behind a career spanning nearly 20 years and included experience in both the classroom and administrator’s office. He also was a band director for sixth- through 12th-graders and served as an assistant principal at CMS and Moffat County High School before taking the middle school principal position, which he’s held for seven years. Thom Schnellinger, MCHS principal, said Toovey played a large role in designing the new building to fit the needs of middle school children. “We’ll miss Bill,” he said. “He’s been a great mentor. He’s been a great colleague for us and a great voice for education in Moffat County.”

COGCC offical talks baseline testing in NW Colorado

Moffat County Commission executive session

BY JOE MOYLAN DAILY PRESS WRITER

When: 2 p.m. today Where: Moffat County Courthouse, 221 W. Victory Way Agenda: • 2 to 2:05 p.m. Call to order, Pledge of Allegiance, moment of silence • 2:05 to 3 p.m. Possible executive session with Moffat County Attorney Jeremy Snow Purpose is to conference with attorney to receive legal advice on specific legal questions, determining positions relative to matters that may be subject to negotiations, developing strategy for negotiations, and instructing negotiators regarding BAA hearings with Questar.

The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, the state’s oversight agency for the energy industry, does not require companies to perform groundwater testing as part of its rules. However, the COGCC has been known to make energy companies perform baseline testing of groundwater reserves under certain circumstances. Thom Kerr, interim director of the COGCC, was in northwest Colorado Tuesday night and fielded questions on the subject from Routt County officials. Although groundwater testing is currently done on a voluntary basis by the energy industry, Kerr said the COGCC will mandate

The agenda is subject to change until 24 hours before scheduled hearings. The board may alter the times of the meetings throughout the day or cancel or reschedule noticed meetings.

baseline testing of water wells, groundwater aquifers and springs as a condition of drilling permit approval. The circumstances under which baseline testing must occur varies, Kerr said. Sometimes the COGCC requires groundwater testing based on the recommendations of local government officials, as was the case in the Raton Field of southeastern Colorado, the Piceance Basin near Rifle and the San Juan Basin outside of Durango. “In the San Juan Basin we wanted to do testing because they are working shallow coal seams, which are very close to the ground water aquifers,” Kerr said. Moffat County oil and natural gas activity of late has been focused on the Niobrara Formation, which is located 8,000 to 12,000 feet below the surface and far from water wells and groundwater supplies. But Kerr said energy companies in the area are required to perform baseline testing as a condition for drilling permit approval. “We like to have baseline testing done in areas that are new to exploration and development,” Kerr said. “That part of the

Niobrara is right in the midst of the exploration play, and we have made (baseline) testing a requirement for most of the companies working there.” So far, the big players in Moffat County are Shell Oil Company, Quicksilver Resources and Gulfport Energy. Although representatives from the three companies could not be reached for comment Thursday afternoon, Kerr said he is confident Shell, Quicksilver and Gulfport are adhering to baseline testing as required. “It is my understanding that those companies have completed some wells and are currently conducting baseline testing,” Kerr said. “If we put it as a condition for permit approval, I’m sure they did it.” Baseline testing is simply choosing water wells near a proposed drill site and checking for the presence of certain chemicals and natural gas. Chemical presence may occur naturally along with natural gas, but companies are required to return to water well test sites a year after drilling is complete to see if chemical or natural gas levels have changed.

In some instances, companies may be required to return to test water wells again three and six years after drilling is complete. Baseline testing can cost anywhere from $350 to $1,200, Kerr said. The energy operator usually absorbs the cost. Before departing Routt County Tuesday night, Kerr was asked if there was any room in the COGCC’s $4 million budget to assist Routt County with a study of water well and ground water quality. Kerr said a study wasn’t necessary. To date, 299 oil and natural gas wells have been drilled in Routt County, and 1,560 in Moffat County. In all cases, operators are required to run electric logs from the base of a well all the way to the surface to measure the conductivity of rock seams — which identify the different types of rocks — and to map the gaps in the rock seams — which is a good indicator of where ground water reserves may be located. “In that sense, a lot of work has already been done,” Kerr said. “Electric logs can be a really good source of information.”

Bill to repeal criminal libel passed Senate

Additions

20710363

Craig Daily Press

In early 2004, the home of a former University of Northern Colorado student was raided by Greeley police officers that were investigating a case of criminal libel. The home belonged to Tom Mink, the publisher of a satirical web site called “The Howling Pig.” Mink used the site to post satirical criticisms of university officials. One professor did not take a particular post, of which he was the subject, in good humor and convinced Weld County prosecutor Susan Knox to sign off on the libel investigation. Mink later sued the City of Greeley and Knox. He was represented by the American Civil Liberties Union in a lawsuit that spent nearly eight years in the legal system, including three trips to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, which is one rung below the United

States Supreme Court. Mink in December 2011 received a $425,000 settlement from Knox. The City of Greeley settled shortly after the lawsuit was filed. Despite the end result, District 1 State Senator Greg Brophy, R-Wray, was motivated by Mink’s story to write Senate Bill 12-102, which repeals libel as a criminal offense. Under current Colorado law it is considered criminal libel if you knowingly publish anything that would tarnish someone’s honesty, integrity, virtue or reputation that in turn exposes them to public hatred, contempt or ridicule, Brophy said. The law also applies if you publish something that would be detrimental to someone who is no longer living. “Oh by the way,” Brophy said, “if you read the statute it says you can still be charged in Colorado with criminal libel even if what you stated is true.” Currently, criminal libel is prosecuted as a Class 6 felony,

which carries the penalty of up to 18 months in prison and a fine of up to $100,000. The Senate on Monday passed SB12-102 unanimously by a vote of 35-0. It will be sent to the Colorado House of Representatives for consideration. “Senate Bill 102 protects free speech by removing an antiquated law from our books,” said Brophy. “This bill will take the heavy hand of government out of prosecuting individuals for exercising their first amendment right.” District 8 State Sen. Jean White, R-Hayden, supported SB12-102. “I’m always happy when we can repeal things,” White said. “Especially in the case of an antiquated law such as this one. “It’s a free speech issue and I was happy to support it.” If confirmed by the House, which Brophy is confident about, the repeal will go into effect Sept. 1.

assembly: Local Republicans prepping for county assembly to take place in March from Page 1

“I didn’t really volunteer for it, but I didn’t turn it down either,” Ence said. “I don’t have any aspirations or goals (for political office), but I find the process interesting and I just feel like I can help.” Where Ence was nominated, Lorrie Butler felt it was her duty to volunteer. She is now serving as co-chairperson for Precinct 13. “I am very interested in politics,” Butler said. “I feel our country is going in the wrong direction and we need some help.” Also among the new faces are Lynne Krause, Precinct 2 co-chairperson; John and Lucila Strange, Precinct 5 chair and co-chairperson respectively; Joyce LeFevre, Precinct 6 co-chairperson; JB Chapman, Precinct 7 co-chairperson; and Kent Nielson, Precinct 11 cochairperson. But precinct caucus participants didn’t just elect new chairs. They also had to decide on delegates for the Moffat County Republican Party Convention on March 24 at Sandrock Elementary School. Moffat County was allocated 94 delegates for the current election cycle, Hume said, which is four more than in 2010. Although the number of delegates each precinct is allocated varies on the number of registered Republicans in the respective precinct, Hume said all of the county’s 94 slots are filled. As part of the agenda for the county assembly, delegates will cast votes to determine which local candidates will appear on the June 26 Republican primary election ballot. Dave DeRose, a Republican candidate for the Moffat County Commission’s District 1 seat, is one of the candidates seeking a spot on the primary ballot through the assembly. “Colorado has decided to maintain the caucus process by asking the public whether or not to do away with it,”

DeRose said. “I think it is a sign of respect to go through the process the people have chosen.” Republicans Audrey Danner and Chuck Grobe, who are both vying for the Moffat County Commission’s District 2 seat, are also going through the assembly process. Danner said she enjoys the grassroots process of moving through the stages from the precinct caucuses to the assembly. Grobe, a former Hayden mayor, quipped that he hasn’t met the learning curve yet and wasn’t aware of any other method to get on the ballot. “I didn’t know there was another process,” Grobe said. “I go through different emotions every day on this process and now it is a matter of contacting all of the delegates to see where you stand.” To secure a spot on the primary ticket, candidates must earn the support of at least 30 percent of the 94 delegates. Should any candidates fail to garner the support of at least 30 percent of the delegates, but

receive the support of more than 10 percent, they have until April 2 to petition onto the ballot. Any candidate who fails to earn the support of at least 10 percent of the county assembly is disqualified from participating in the primary. Although the county assembly process is the preferred method by the majority of the candidates, it is not the only way to secure a place on the primary. Rick Barnes, a Republican candidate for the Moffat County Commission’s District 2 seat, is the only candidate in the race thus far to choose the second avenue for a primary ballot berth. He is bypassing the assembly process altogether and has elected to try to petition his way into the primary. “I looked at who the delegates are and feel I could get the 30 percent, but if I didn’t I would only have two weeks to get the signatures I need to petition on,” Barnes said. “I also decided to go with the petition process because my name is not as well known as the others in the race. “This gives me the opportunity to get out, shake hands and talk with people.” Barnes needs to acquire 463 signatures from registered Republicans in Moffat County to make it on the ballot. Stephanie Beckett, Moffat County elections supervisor, said the required signatures represents 20 percent of the total number of Republicans who cast a ballot for the Moffat County Commission’s District 2 race during the 2010 primary. In addition to setting the local primary ballot, Hume said Moffat County Republican Assembly delegates will be able to elect 28 people to represent the county at the April 14 Colorado State Republican Convention in Denver. Colorado Convention delegates will have the opportunity to help set the rest of the state’s Republican Primary ballot.

Changes needed in our educational system To the editor: The question has again been raised, “Will more money put into schools improve the results of education?” Consider several constants that have been imbedded in our education system for a long time and until these are eliminated there will never be enough money to fix the problem of poor results. The Department of Education: eliminate it. The one size fits all out of Washington, D.C., has never worked and will not work. The only thing it provides is a conduit for social engineering by whichever party is in power at the time. Teacher unions: eliminate them. They are simply counterproductive to the job of educating students. Regardless of what’s claimed, their concern is for the teacher, not the student. The current structure also places too many constraints on taxpayers and administrators. Teacher tenure: eliminate it. As with any vocation, longevity does not guarantee success. Any and all job retention or pay raises should be based on merit. It’s unfair for the taxpayer to foot the bill and a disservice to the student who goes to school. An honest look by parents, students and even teachers will show the majority can think of at least one or two teachers who are not cut out for the job. These will affect the overall outcome. Remove unqualified or unproductive teachers, and hire those who can produce results and pay them accordingly. The budget for the Department of Education is around $68.1 billion. Take that and whatever proceeds can be raised by selling off assets of this worthless bureaucracy, then divide it among the states. That would be a minimum of $1.36 billion per state. Maintain this amount with a reasonable increase on an annual basis and in the long run taxpayers will win out with a lower cost for education and students with a better education. Give control to the states. In turn, this will allow taxpayers to have more control of what goes on and someone closer to home to vote out of office if they stray from the agenda. It’s easier to watch what goes on at the state level than the federal level. States that fail to address the problem will, by their own lack of effort, lose out until they get See Letters on page 7

Of gardens and quirks

M

y friend Mary, an expert gardener, presides over a generous yard filled with green treasures that invite exploration and discovery. When I wander through it, I’m reminded of a book I read when young, Janet Sheridan The Secret Garden. Though Mary’s yard lacks high rock walls and a locked door hidden behind roses, it compensates with a picket fence and a deck that seeps into the yard’s casual beauty. During a recent telephone conversation, Mary told me that she now prunes, thins and discards more than she used to grow. Her words validated the learning curve Joel and I’ve experienced: We used to agonize over plants that failed to flourish as we waited for flowerbeds to fill and saplings to gain girth. Any plant that prospered was precious and protected. I was reluctant to cut a blossom to enjoy indoors because I feared there’d never be another. The first time we divided and transplanted perennials, we felt bold—and worried. Now, because we know our decisiveness will make the surviving plants sturdier and more productive, we cut back, rip out and divide

without fear. I wish I could learn to do the same judicious discarding in other aspects of my life. For example, it wouldn’t hurt me to prune back my tendency to make snap judgments. I sometimes decide from afar that others are persnickety, pompous or petty; then I get to know them and realize they’re a bit bashful, feeling insecure or worried about doing things right—traits I share with them. I could also divest myself of the notion that my memory is the correct memory. “You’re wrong, Joel,” I’ll state with finality. “The car I had when we got married was blue. I should know.” Later, I see a framed snapshot of us standing in front of the car in question and am startled by its vivid maroon hue. I don’t rush to share the news with Joel. As long as I’m throwing out personality disorders, perhaps I’ll take a whack at the high standards I set for my own performance in comparison to others, and the frustration I feel when I don’t measure up. I used to scuff my toes in the dirt, wait my turn to bat and watch my sister, Carolyn, stride to the plate. The opposing players groaned; the fielders faded farther into the crab grass; and the pitcher looked downright discouraged.

As Carolyn rounded the bases headed for home, a grin of pure happiness on her face, I felt hateful and considered faking appendicitis to avoid my turn at bat. Moments later, under a blue sky and bright sun, surrounded by neighborhood friends having fun, I swung mightily, bounced the ball to the pitcher and was out at first. My face flushed with an embarrassment and anger that ruined my day. I’ve learned to camouflage my self-disappointment better—smiling so vigorously after my third gutter ball that my facial bones snap— but I’d like to abandon it altogether. And another quirk to question: why do I think I should keep every craft project I ever created? They’re ugly. Finally, I need to deadhead my attempts to mold Joel into my image. He’ll never understand the philosophy behind jotting peanut butter on the shopping list after he’s scraped the jar clean. Letting the phone ring without answering it is beyond him, and he’s not at all interested in crossword puzzles. So be it. I need to accept his foibles and move on. But I think I’ll begin discarding my bad habits tomorrow. Right now I need to remind Joel to quit putting his beer on the refrigerator shelf I designated for milk.

Everybody knows “those people.” We’re glad to talk about them because they tend to make us feel better about ourselves. Almost every night of the week, there’s a full line-up of “those people” on TV. People who hoard, need an intervention, make a living picking garbage, Lance Scranton dig through the swamp, make illegal alcohol, or drive around repossessing vehicles from unsuspecting delinquents. Every community has some of “those people.” They stand by the exit at Walmart holding up a sign asking for help. Some won’t find a job or always seem to be on welfare. Employees who smoke outside the entrance to stores and make us cough through the cloud as we enter, or drivers who talk on their cell phone as they pass through a red light or the ones who pretend they are listening to you while staring at their cell phone the whole time you’re speaking. Schools have “those people,” too. The student who treats everyone like their emotional punching bag. Parents who charge into the building to let certain teachers or principals know just exactly what’s on their mind, or the teacher who appears to treat kids poorly. Oh, and don’t forget the principal who always seems to make the wrong decisions for kids. But, here’s the truth: At one time or another we’ve all likely been guilty of being one of “those people.” We can be the one who people talk about as the reason things aren’t the way they should be. Worse, we can end up feeling like we’re surrounded by so many of “those people” that we actually start to believe that we’re the only person left on the planet with any common sense. When we start making judgments about people’s choices, actions, and circumstances, we can speed down a pretty destructive road. Maybe that guy from Walmart might actually need some help. The student who misbehaves might have issues and school is his or her only safe outlet. The teacher may not know their attitude is affecting students negatively and the principal is forced to make decisions every day that may not be popular with everyone. It’s fun to sit around, sometimes with friends, and make fun of “those people” because sometimes they might “deserve” our critical analysis of their actions and attitudes. I can be guilty of wondering See scranton on page 7

critical analysis of their actions and attitudes. I can be guilty of wondering where common sense was jettisoned when people decided that a cell phone was more interesting than the actual live, person — but I am a bit oldfashioned.

As we move forward to make our schools the best they can be, I hope we don’t become “those people” who pass judgment without finding out what’s going on, or take the time to talk to the people involved. Let’s be “the people” from Moffat County who are a concerned bunch of community members who want to get

involved to make things better. We’ll arrive at our destination much faster and have far fewer casualties. Lance Scranton is a Moffat County High School teacher and coach. He writes a weekly column for the Craig Daily Press and can be reached at lscranton@moffatsd. org.

LETTERS: Family of missing teens thank County Search and Rescue, Sheriff’s Office

Family of missing teens thank emergency services To the editor: We would like to thank Moffat County Search and Rescue and the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office for the wonderful job they did Sunday night when our son, Justin McAlexander, and his friends, Jessie and Mason Burke, were stuck in a ravine on Freeman Reservoir. The Moffat County Search and Rescue team is incredible. They went over and above the call of duty with a great deal of dedication to finding these

Finally, we would like to thank Jack and Jo Reed for going up the next day and getting our other sled for us, and Michelle Foulk for bringing us hot coffee and doughnuts and just being there for moral support. We were very lucky that Justin could keep his wits about him and use the skills he learned. We are very lucky to have all the dedicated people in Moffat County that were so willing to go above and beyond to find them. Because of that, the boys came off the mountain safe and are all doing well. No amount of thanks can ever express how much we appreciate all of you and the tireless jobs you do. Bruce, Bobbi, Chris, Kirsten and Justin McAlexander

with the program. Each state knows what is best suited for their needs far better than the federal government. Fifty states will provide 50 laboratories and the odds are much better of coming up with a working plan, as the current system is a failure. Each state would be free to copy all or part of another state’s system to come up with the best possible plan for their own use. Charter schools, private schools and home schooling have addressed the aforementioned issues with success and are nothing more than a treatment for the disease caused by the current system. If the system were not broken, there would not be the constant effort to repair it. John Williams

boys. Some of these rescuers were out there for more than 15 hours looking for these boys and they never once stopped. They are an awesome group who are very skilled at what they do and Moffat County is very lucky to have their skills and dedication. We would also like to thank the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office for their dedication as well, especially deputy Todd Wheeler and sheriff Tim Jantz. They were at Freeman as well the entire night and did an excellent job. We would like to thank Richard Oberwitte, Jack Reed, and Dario Geourgiou who so willingly came out in the middle of the night to assist with finding the boys. They know the mountain well and were an extreme amount of help. They also spent several hours on that mountain searching until the boys were found. We would like to thank the excellent ambulance crew that responded and assisted the boys once they were brought off the mountain. We would like to thank Routt County Search and Rescue for being on standby as well as Yampa River State Parks for being on standby as well. They were both en route to Freeman when the boys were finally found. We would also like to thank Yampa River State Parks for teaching our Boy Scouts troop several of those survival skills that Justin used during that night.

Come Home

By TIM DOUGLAS Pastor, ridgeview ChurCh of god

Anyone who has been around church very much is probably familiar with the story Jesus told about “The Prodigal Son” in Luke 15. Let me offer a few questions and observations about the father in the story. Was this a wise father? When approached by his younger son with a very odd request for their culture the father considered the request for his inheritance and gave his younger son his portion, but also his elder son his inheritance as well. Why didn’t the father plead

with his son to stay home when he found out he was leaving? I believe this father was not one to force his will upon his son, or on anyone else he loved. He just relied on the teaching and guidance he himself had instilled in him and trusted that his son would make wise decisions. When his son left and was gone for a long time, why didn’t the father send a search party for him? Perhaps the father constantly reminded himself that his son knew the way home and he never gave up hope that his son would return. Why did the father not judge the son in a harsh manner

when he returned home broke and stinking like the pig pen? The father understood that his son felt guilt and shame already and was experiencing feelings of condemnation and failure. My parents live in Grand Junction and since we have been here in Craig only two and a half hours away, each time we have the opportunity to go to Junction they express how glad they are we are so close. We have never lived as close to them as we are now. I thought about this story Jesus shares about a father and two sons and my focus went to the father. My dad smiles real

big and laughs at my quirky comments and has fun with all of us each time we see him. The dad in the story has a reaction that neither the wayward son nor the elder son expect, and we don’t know for sure but probably the neighbors didn’t expect either. The story states that the father counted his son dead but now alive, lost but now found, and declared him restored with all rights and privileges. He even commanded a celebration to be observed because of his son’s return. I like it when my dad smiles with pleasure toward me and I thought of our heavenly

DID YOU KNOW – What About Suicide?

The tragedy of suicide is close to home here in Craig. There is a united groan when we read of another precious life snuffed out in this awful way. Perhaps it will be helpful to write about what the Bible has to say about suicide. Is there hope for eternity for those who take their own lives? It depends on their relationship with God established beforehand. If someone has trusted in Jesus Christ as their Savior, they can never be lost, no matter what they do. “Indeed I tell you truly that he that hears my word, and believes on Him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life” – John 5:24. Everlasting means everlasting. It should be called “temporary life” if it can be lost. Peter said we are partakers of the divine nature by believing great and precious promises. You can never go back to not being a partaker of God’s divine nature once you believe. You cannot be un-born out of God’s family once you have been born into it by faith: “For you are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus” – Galatians 3:26. The mental/emotional state people are in when they commit suicide has nothing to do with whether or not they have trusted Christ as Savior and thus have eternal life. The issue in suicide is whether or not God can say “Well done” when they reach heaven. He wants His children not to despair, but to walk with Him in glad obedience so that He can use them to bless others, and reward them when they reach heaven.

Father watching and waiting for some sons and daughters that have wandered away to return to him. I believe he is waiting patiently for some to “come to their senses” and realize that his love is still the same. I also believe that he will not condemn and judge harshly because he knows the burden of guilt and shame that is already there that the enemy uses to keep us separated from God the Father. Are you tired of the struggle away from home? I know a heavenly father and his unconditional love and longing for his children to simply “Come Home.”

The People of Yampa Valley Baptist Church invite you to learn more about God’s Good News by attending the service Sunday morning at 11:00. The church is located at 3900 E. Victory Way, on the old highway, just past the Electric Company.

Pepsi's mid-calorie soda aims to win back drinkers NEW YORK (AP) — Pepsi is hoping to win back soda drinkers with a compromise. Some people don't like the calories in regular soda, but loathe the taste of zero-calorie diet drinks. So the nation's No. 2 cola company is rolling out "Pepsi Next," a cola that has about half the calories of regular Pepsi at 60 calories per can. The cola, which is slated to hit store shelves nationally by the end of March, is Pepsi's biggest product launch in years. The drink comes as people increasingly move away from sugary S&P 500 1,363.46

drinks to water and other lower-calorie beverages because of health concerns. It's also an attempt by Pepsi to revive the cola wars against Coke and others. Pepsi Next isn't the first drink to try to hit the sweet spot between diet and regular cola. Dr Pepper Snapple rolled out its low-calorie Dr Pepper Ten, which has 10 calories. The company said the drink, which has sugar unlike its diet soda, helped boost its fourth-quarter sales. But coming up with a successful "mid-calorie soda," which has

Newmont Mining, one of the world's biggest gold producers, reports fourthquarter results today. The company has benefited from rising gold prices, which hit a high for the year on Wednesday.

liquid hits the tongue to the aftertaste it leaves. "We wanted to develop a taste curve that gives the full flavor of regular Pepsi," Tezanos said. Pepsi Next also follows the company's lower-calorie variations of its other drinks. Gatorade, a unit of Pepsi, has "G2," which at 20 calories has a little less than half the calories of the original version. And the company's Tropicana unit introduced "Trop50," which is half of the 110 calories in a regular 8-ounce glass of orange juice.

Pepsi says its latest stab at an in-between soda uses a different formula to more closely imitate the taste of regular soda. Pepsi Next is made with a mix of three artificial sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup. A Pepsi spokeswoman, Melisa Tezanos, said the company developed the cola by researching the "taste curve" that consumers experience when drinking regular soda. She compared that arc to how someone might evaluate a sip of wine, from the moment the

New CEO Ron Johnson has only been at J.C. Penney since November, but he has made it clear that he seeks to transform every aspect of the retailer’s business. The company reports fourth-quarter results today, and it should become apparent if the former Apple executive's strategy helped woo holiday shoppers.

more calories, has been more challenging for beverage makers. In 2001, Coke rolled out "C2" and Pepsi in 2004 introduced its "Pepsi Edge," both of which had about half the calories of regular soda. Both products also were taken off the market by 2006 because of poor sales. "The problem was that consumers either wanted regular soda or a diet drink with zero calories — not something in between," said John Sicher, editor and publisher of Beverage Digest.

Dear Annie: Last April, I moved into an apartment with one of my best friends. We get along great except for one thing: her cats. “Renee” was ANNIE’S born with no MAILBOX sense of smell. She’s normally very organized except when it comes to the animals. She forgets to clean the litterbox because she can’t smell it, so I have to remind her constantly. The odor can become so Kathy and Marcy unbearable that I no longer allow my friends inside. Also, her cats play with their food trays and water dishes and knock everything onto the floor. She never cleans it up. I had to confront her about this because it was attracting bugs. And when the cats throw up, I’m the one who ends up cleaning it because I know she won’t do it. It is absolutely disgusting. I don’t like being confrontational and Renee is very argumentative. Anytime I’ve tried to address this, it falls on deaf ears. I’ve managed to survive this long as her roommate, so right now I am simply biding my time until I can move out. However, Renee recently commented that she doesn’t want me to leave when our lease is up. I wouldn’t mind living with her again if she would give up her cats, but I know that isn’t going to happen, and I’d feel guilty asking her.

Renee and I have the same circle of friends, so if I ask around about a new roommate, she’ll hear, and it would hurt her feelings. I don’t want to ruin our friendship, because she truly is a good person and an amazing friend. I just want out of kitty hell. — Always Holding My Nose Dear Nose: You have nothing to lose by telling Renee that she must take better care of the cats or you are moving out. She can clean the litterbox at regular intervals, whether she smells it or not. And anything that lands on the floor is visible to both of you. She may be an “amazing” friend, but she is a lousy roommate. Dear Annie: How can I get my husband and his sister to stop scratching and picking at their heads and ears? It’s disgusting and looks terrible. They do it at work, too, and it’s so unprofessional. — Tired of Picking Dear Tired: First ask your husband to see his doctor or dermatologist to find out whether he has a scalp condition. If so, there is likely treatment that will alleviate the problem, and it also might help your sister-in-law. Otherwise, it would seem to be an ingrained family habit. That means it will be hard to shake, especially if one is unwilling to address it. You have no say over his sister’s bad habits, but explain to your husband how off-putting this is, and ask whether he’d be willing to work on it. Because he is undoubtedly unaware that he’s scratching and picking, your job will be to point it out, nicely, every single time you catch him.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Because you’re feeling a little claustrophobic, you’re likely to need more elbowroom than usual in order to function effectively. Try to act independently without smacking anyone in the jaw. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You should stop and take some time to straighten out an old matter that’s never been handled properly. Even if it doesn’t bother others, only you, it’s worth doing things right. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Although you might not seek or want it, you are destined to play a key role in a group endeavor. Because some members aren’t aware of what’s going on, they’ll welcome your input. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Don’t be surprised if you find yourself to be far more ambitious than usual. You might have to contend with some challenges, but you’ll win out if you use the big guns. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — If you are required to make a critical decision, trade on past experiences for a plan. By using the same techniques that were successful before, you’ll make the right choice. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Another avenue for material gains could come about through one of your newer relationships. The person in question likes what she or he sees in you, and wants to include you in something worth check-

ing out. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Chances are you’ll automatically get involved in a partnership arrangement involving something that happens to be your strong suit. With your input, the results will turn out to be good. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — No grass is going to grow under your feet. Because you’ll see what has to be done and know how to do it, you won’t hesitate to get crackin’. This is likely to turn out to be a very successful day. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — With your popularity at a high point, it goes without saying that you’ll be well received wherever you go. Your presence will automatically brighten up any corner you walk into. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Take any opportunity you get to finalize an important development. Don’t leave anything up to chance or any loose threads hanging. You may not get another crack at it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Rely on your splendid mental attributes and your innate logic, but don’t totally discount your intuitive perceptions. Each facet has a place in your reasoning, so use your gifts accordingly. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — There’s an excellent chance that certain business matters will be less complicated now than they will be tomorrow. Don’t put off handling anything important.

GIRLS: Tournament is the third postseason appearance for seniors FROM PAGE 1

find out now on

Craig Daily Press

“They can also shoot the three, so we need to take that away as well.” No. 2 Centaurus (19-3) will play No. 7 Mesa Ridge (1410) in the other second-round match-up at Centaurus. Sadvar said with neither Moffat County nor Thompson Valley being the home team, she expects an even match-up. “Neither team will have a huge crowd or a big student section booing,” she said. “It will be mutual for both teams playing in a different gym. Thompson Valley has played in Centaurus’ gym before, so that may be a slight advantage, but a court is a court. We just have to execute our game plan.”

Ray said the Bulldogs would be looking to get hot from behind the arc early, which will hopefully open Sadvar up in the post. “We have got to be patient and take care of the ball and get the shot we want,” he said. “Annie has been hard to stop inside, but if (Thompson Valley’s) post causes problems, we can kick it outside. “We need to take advantage of what they give us, something we have done all season against teams.” Fellow Western Slope League teams Steamboat Springs and Palisade fell in the opening round, but fifth-seeded Delta scored a 64-44 win over Conifer in the Tracy Hill Region to advance to the second round.

quotable: “Neither team will have a huge crowd or a big student section booing. It will be mutual for both teams playing in a different gym. Thompson Valley has played in Centaurus’ gym before, so that may be a slight advantage, but a court is a court. We just have to execute our game plan.” Annie Sadvar, a Moffat County High School senior, about playing on a neutral court in the second round of the 4A state basketball playoffs.

No. 4 Glenwood Springs also received a first-round bye and will play No. 5 Valor Christian today in the Tanya Haave Region. Ray said the Bulldogs have had focused practices all week to avoid any kind of letdown today, but Sadvar and fellow senior Melissa Camilletti will have a big impact on the out-

come against the Eagles. This season’s tournament is the third postseason appearance for the seniors. “Last year, Melissa and Annie both had big tournaments,” Ray said. “I think they will come in relaxed and if the other girls get the jitters out of the way early, our seniors can be a huge key for us in the playoffs.”

MCHS works out postseason expense issue School district will continue to pay stipends BY JOSHUA GORDON DAILY PRESS WRITER

JOANIE WALT/COURTESY PHOTO

JARRET WALT, a Moffat County High School junior who plays hockey for the Steamboat Springs Sailors, was selected to join the Colorado Ski Country Selects youth hockey team when they play March 24 to April 1 in Engelberg, Switzerland. Walt has set up a fundraising page on the Selects website hoping to raise enough money to cover his travel expenses.

MCHS junior tabbed for Euro hockey trip BY JOSHUA GORDON DAILY PRESS WRITER

Jarret Walt has a dream of playing hockey at the next level. Walt, a Moffat County High School junior, lives in a town without an official high school hockey team, so he commutes to Steamboat Springs to play for the Sailors. Because Walt lives on the Western Slope instead of the Front Range, where he says the best hockey teams are, he plans to go to a camp this summer in Arvada to get his name out there. But Walt may have found his biggest opportunity in Craig. While skating at Moffat County Ice Arena, Walt came across Bryan Smith, a coach for the Colorado Ski Country Selects youth hockey team that travels for a week to play in Europe. Walt tried out for Smith, showing his hockey and skating skills, and was asked to be one of 15 players joining the Selects from March 24 to April 1 in Engelberg, Switzerland. “It feels pretty good to be

QUOTABLE: “It is fast-paced and you have to be on your feet about everything. I don’t want to just go there for a good time, I want to go to win. Being able to play with faster players is only going to help me out.”

Jarret Walt, a Moffat County High School junior, about playing hockey in advanced leagues

selected and it is definitely a great opportunity I will not abuse,” Walt said Wednesday. “It is inspiring, because if I can do this, than I can do a lot of things I maybe didn’t think I was capable of doing.” The Selects will play five games against local Switzerland Junior Elite and Junior Top teams while experiencing local culture in their down time. Walt said he is excited to see how hockey is played in a country other than the United States. “I am going to gain valuable experience,” he said of playing in Switzerland. “I will get to see the way other players play the game and look at what I can do to improve my own game. “I think it is going to be a lot of fun over there.”

Walt said he has talked to several players who have played in Europe before, and they say the same thing — the game is a lot faster than it is here. “It is fast paced and you have to be on your feet about everything,” he said. “I don’t want to just go there for a good time, I want to go to win. Being able to play with faster players is only going to help me out.” To help Walt pay for his trip, he is asking for donations, hoping to raise $1,600, or about half the total cost. Walt has set up a fundraising page on the Selects website, and donations can be made by visiting http://www.cscs-selects. com/jarret-walt23-jarret-walt/ and contributing at the bottom of the page. “If I do really good (in

Switzerland) and turn this into a career, people from here can be a part of that,” Walt said. “They can help a kid live his dream and pursue a career in hockey.” Walt said he hopes to join a Junior hockey team after he graduates high school and then play at a Division I or Division II college while earning his degree. Playing in Switzerland, he said, could be a huge push in the right direction. “Hockey is my favorite sport and I have been playing since I was about 5 years old,” he said. “In most sports you just run and do things, but in hockey you have to learn to play and learn to skate. “It is different than any other sport, and I want to continue playing as long as I can.”

Miscommunications between Jeff Simon, Moffat County High School athletic director, the Moffat County School District, and MCHS varsity coaches resulted in a preemptive hold on all postseason expenses for varsity teams this school year. Simon said discussions took place before the 2011-12 school year about the district not paying for team expenses during the postseason due to budgetary concerns. In past years, the school district paid for player and coach hotel rooms and gave meal stipends when teams qualified for the postseason. While there was discussion regarding funds being withheld, Simon said a decision was never made. The funding issue arose this week concerning the MCHS girls varsity basketball team as it prepares to travel to a state playoff game today in Lafayette. The school district will pay expenses for the basketball team, as it has done in the past, Simon said. Also, varsity teams that have already competed in the postseason during the school year will be reimbursed for expenses. Simon said he is responsible for the funding oversight. “Depending on the gate take in, (Colorado High School Activities Association) would reimburse the school for expenses, but typically a lot doesn’t come back,” Simon said Wednesday. “It was a mistake on my part because no coaches were aware and a change had not been made. There will be a discussion piece at the end of the year because of budget cuts to see how we handle this moving forward.”
