Reaching their potential Casino Night to raise funds for Horizons Specialized Services BY NICOLE INGLIS DAILY PRESS WRITER

Jeremy Gohr and Jason Latham are learning to cook together. The two men already share their favorite TV shows, video games and a two-bedroom apartment in Craig. They share a love for competing in the Special Olympics, and display countless medals won in competition in their bedrooms. Gohr, 24, and Latham, 30, also share a developmental disability they’ve had since birth. But, that doesn’t stop the roommates from forging forward in their independent lives. “He helped me make grilled cheese last week, huh Jeremy?” said Latham, nodding his head with excitement. “It was good. Oh, yeah.” Debbie Robinson, a team coordinator from Horizons Specialized Services, sat in Latham and Gohr’s tidy living room Tuesday afternoon, ready to take Gohr to a dental appointment. Robinson’s care, along with the apartment, is provided by the non-profit organization that serves more than 40 disabled clients in Craig. “We help them be self-sufficient,” Robinson said. “Everyone we serve has different levels of capability. We make sure they’re cared for, but teach them living skills that they can apply.” Robinson, who is responsible for three clients who live independently, said Horizons helps clients like Latham and Gohr with meals, time management, money and appointments. A staff is on call around the clock to respond to the needs of clients who live on their own, with families or in one of three group SHAWN MCHUGH/DAILY PRESS homes in Craig.

Officials discuss projects at airport BY BRIAN SMITH DAILY PRESS WRITER

Craig City Council member Ray Beck said airports are “vital pieces of infrastructure,” and improving them is important to communities. Beck, along with the city council and Moffat County commissioner Audrey Danner met Tuesday before the regular city council meeting to discuss ongoing improvement projects at the Yampa Valley Regional Airport. YVRA airport manager Dave Ruppel gave a presentation that outlined the third phase of construction projects that seek to make the airport more functional and better serve people who use it. The third phase, the final step to finishing improvement projects that started in 2002, involves improving passenger flows through the airport, building a new restaurant and adding an additional baggage claim belt. The project will also include building administrative offices and conference spaces, improving the airport’s roof, upgrading the fire sprinkler system and replacing elevator equipment. In total, the project entails about $7.8 million in upgrades to the airport, which is located in Hayden and serves Moffat and Routt counties. Designs for the upgrades have been finalized and bids are being accepted for the project. Construction of the restaurant and building expansion are scheduled to begin in July and be completed in November. That portion of the project will See COUNCIL on page 18 INSIDE

The holiday commemorates the Battle of Puebla, which took place May 5, 1862 during an attempted French invasion of Mexico. With the help of the U.S. military, Mexico drove the French out a few years later. “It was the last time that Mexicans and Americans got together in the military to fight someone trying to invade the country,” Bacon said.

Craig resident Erika Zalenzuela has lived in America for more than 20 years, but her memory of May 5 stretches back to her childhood in Mexico. Every year on Cinco de Mayo, people stayed home from school and work to celebrate the commemorative holiday, she said. “In Mexico, they use tequila and piñatas and decorate with colors like red, dark green and white,” Zalenzuela said of celebrating the holiday. “And firecrackers.” The cultural tradition was not lost when she moved to the U.S., nor when she moved to Craig two years ago. This year, Zalenzuela is volunteering her time to help prepare for Integrated Community’s annual Cinco de Mayo celebration, scheduled for Saturday. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Centennial Mall, 1111 W. Victory Way, and will feature a variety of traditional Mexican fare, music

Tax as a catalyst I

However, one glaring hole in the proposal so far is this: What exactly will the money be used for? Figures indicate the city lodging tax could raise somewhere in the neighborhood of $550,000 per year, and that’s serious enough money to warrant serious projects. Uses have been mentioned — funding tourism and community events, for instance — but none have been cemented. The Editorial Board endorses an idea members think is worth consideration and study. A convention/civic center in Craig, and one preferably located at or near Colorado Northwestern Community College’s development in west Craig.

revenue without an additional burden on residents and then to funnel that money back into the community. A convention/civic center — be careful to note, that it’s far removed from a recreation center, which in this economy, is a train-wreck of an idea — would give the community a facility that could house an assortment of large gatherings, be it for businesses, families or otherwise. It also helps prevent Craig and Moffat County from leaking that business to Steamboat Springs and goes a step further in developing our community as a destination. Our community, it should be noted, does not have such a facility now. Our community has facilities that, in a pinch, can be used for such gatherings, but nothing that is specifically tailored for them. And, the CNCC Craig campus location is a perfect fit. CNCC has done an envi-

able job planning its campus for the present and future, and if builders and planners are smart, they’ll recognize that area as a potential new hub of the city. The Editorial Board stands by its earlier opinion that the lodging tax was a good idea — and one councilor Terry Carwile should be commended for — but it has a public perception problem to overcome. The word, tax, is going to give voters reason for pause, and that can be attributed to our traditionally fiscally conservative community and an unstable economy. Those pushing the lodging tax proposal might have difficulty selling the idea to voters without a firm and worthwhile plan for using the money. So far, there has been speculation, but nothing concrete. Although November is months away, voters are already forming opinions and the sooner some final uses for the money are decided, the better chance the question has of succeeding. The Editorial Board believes a convention/civic center has enough merit to perhaps sway voters to the pro-lodging tax category. It’s an idea that makes a splash, invests in the community and can perhaps be a catalyst for economic growth. If nothing else, it’s an idea that at least has to be in the conversation.

It’s inevitable: Charlie Crist, independent candidate for the U.S. Senate. You’ve never seen such fuming, whining and grinding of capped teeth. And that’s not from voters — that’s from Republican leaders who are pitching a hissy fit. They want the governor to shut up and go away, Carl Hiaasen but he’s not playing ball. They want him to yield the stage to Marco Rubio, a robotic right-wing smoothie, but Charlie insists on hanging around for an encore. Some pollsters say Crist has a dead-even chance of beating Rubio and Democrat Kendrick Meek in the general election. Weirder things have happened in Florida. Not so long ago, the governor was the Republican golden boy. Most of the party’s top dogs were singing his praises for the Senate. Here’s the irreconcilable problem: Crist is a moderate in a party whose leaders no longer tolerate it. Republican screamers officially turned on the governor after he accepted federal stimulus benefits. In a state suffering from brutal unemployment and epidemic home foreclosures, only a moron would have turned down the money. At this point, Crist has nothing to lose by running for the Senate as an independent. It worked in Connecticut for one-time Democrat Joe Lieberman, who triumphed despite the fury of his former party and a numbing deficit of personal charisma. Crist is more affable than Lieberman, and owns a keener instinct for well-timed drama. His recent veto of the controversial Republican education bill, which would have tied teacher salaries to student test scores, made the front page of the New York Times. The legislation was vehemently opposed by Florida teachers and many parents, and Crist’s action won over new fans as well as some doubters. More significantly, it enhanced his national branding as a “mavericky” kind of guy, to steal from Tina Fey. Now Charlie is sitting up in Tallahassee, merrily twirling his veto pen, driving fellow Republicans up the wall. No matter what happens in the November election, the Senate race will be vastly more interesting with a viable independent rattling both political parties to their cores. How could that not be fun to watch?

Commission approves energy audit has the KIT to make


Street Legal! (Horn, Turn Signal, Standard or LED Lighting)


T&H Parts, Inc. 400 Taylor • Craig, Colorado • 824-3284 •


Moffat County could be going green and saving some green in the process. On Tuesday, the Moffat County Commission approved, 3-0, an energy performance evaluation contract with the Aurorabased Ennovate Corporation. The project is a three-step process aimed at evaluating the energy use of all county department buildings. From the evaluation, Ennovate will recommend ways the county can upgrade

or change its current energy use to more efficiently power buildings. Ultimately, the county is guaranteed by Ennovate to recoup its expenses in the process. The money saved by improving energy deficiencies could go to fund other projects such as capitol improvements or more building upgrades in the long run, said Tinneal Gerber, Moffat County budget analyst. The project is organized and monitored by the Governor’s Energy Office. The county commission began investigating the possibility of implementing the performance evaluation in the fall of 2008, commissioner Tom Mathers said. The process will start with a preliminary technical energy audit, which is at no cost to the county. The preliminary audit will consist of assessing the county’s energy use and a preliminary cost and savings engineering assessment. Ennovate will then make recommendations to the county on ways to reduce its energy use and projects it could implement. The county can then decide which projects it wants to pursue. Based on the county’s decision, Ennovate will then conduct a more in-depth assessment and present a final report at a cost of 9 cents per square foot. From there, the county will begin the implementation of those suggestions. Construction costs to implement the energysaving measures depend on the projects selected by the commission, Gerber said. A preliminary schedule slates the project to be completed by February 2011. The county is then required to track its energy savings through 2013. Energy uses that could be studied include lighting, heating and water use, and other county paid utilities. The average savings of counties that implement the performance evaluation are about 10 to 30 percent, according to the Governor’s Energy Office. In 2008, Moffat County spent $384,525 on utilities for all of its department buildings. The county could save $115,357 if it were able to trim 30 percent of those utility expenses. Moffat County isn’t the only county to start the process of energy performance contracting. Routt and Rio Blanco counties are entered into the process, as well as about 13 other counties across the state. “Unfortunately, it will cost us funds to get it done but the savings over the years will pay for it,” Mathers said. “It is an

At its regular meeting Tuesday, the Moffat County Commission: • Approved, 3-0, payroll warrant resolutions ending April 17 totaling $677,068.36. • Approved, 3-0, a services contract with Love & Logic representative Leslie Christensen for effective and non–abusive discipline education not to exceed $2,000. • Approved, 3-0, a five-county core services substance abuse services contract with Thomas Traynor of Steamboat Springs not to exceed $5,000. • Approved, 3-0, a five-county core services mental health services contract with Mary Haas of Granby not to exceed $1,250. • Approved, 3-0, a five-county core services mental health services contract with Rita Rhodes of Oak Creek not to exceed $20,000. • Approved, 3-0, awarding a bid for concession stand services at Loudy-Simpson Park to Hubler Enterprises, working as Cugino’s Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant. Cugino’s will rent the concession stand space from the county for $900 per month. • Approved, 3-0, an abatement hearing and refund of $3,609.54 to Martyn Development. • Approved, 3-0, an abatement hearing and refund of $1,012.43 to Fleischli Oil. • Approved, 3-0, March 16 minutes from the Moffat County Social Services meeting. • Heard a presentation from Barbara West of the Northwest Colorado Council for Children and Families. • Heard a presentation on caseload trends and a monthly report from Marie Peer of Social Services. • Approved, 3-0, a request to waive the bid process on a five-year lease upgrade with Xerox for county copiers. • Approved, 3-0, to move into executive session to discuss negotiation procedures related to Griffin Hadden v. Moffat County, a county road litigation, with county attorney Kathleen Taylor and natural resources director Jeff Comstock. • Approved, 3-0, to move into executive session with county attorney Kathleen Taylor and human resources director Lynnette Running to give legal advice on a legal claim.

investment in the future.” Commissioner Audrey Danner said the energy performance evaluation was ranked as a higher priority item due to budget shortfalls and declining county revenues. Danner said the project will involve extensive work with all the county’s departments to successfully implement the energy-saving measures. But that’s work that will be worth the reward, she said. “We have to keep up the maintenance of our buildings for the future,” she said. “Any changes that we can do to increase our efficiencies make them better buildings for the comfort of our employees and citizens and extend the life of the building, that is what we have to do.” Brian Smith can be reached at 875-1794 or

Stocks fall due to European debt

NEW YORK (AP) — Investors are again worried that debt problems in Greece and Portugal could threaten the global economic recovery. Stocks plunged in the U.S. and Europe Tuesday after Standard & Poor’s downgraded the debt of the two European countries. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 213 points, its biggest loss in almost three months. All the major market indexes were down about 2 percent.

The ratings downgrades also sent the dollar up more than 1.1 percent against the euro, hitting its highest level in about a year. At the same time, gold and Treasury prices rose as investors sought safer investments. The three often do not trade in the same direction. “It was a knee-jerk reaction,” said Brian Peardon, a wealth adviser at Harrison Financial Group in Citrus Heights, Calif. Peardon said the small size of Greece and Portugal’s economies

mean their debt struggles are not yet a major problem. But if they were to default on their debt, other countries that hold their bonds would also suffer. Debt-strapped countries would also likely find it harder to spend more to stimulate their economies and help feed the global economic recovery. Standard & Poor’s downgraded Greece’s debt to junk status and lowered Portugal’s debt two notches to A-minus from A-plus.

MCHS volleyball coach resigns By BEN BULKELEY DAILY PRESS WRITER

shawn mchugh/daily press

SCOTT COSTELLO, RIGHT, SLAPS HANDS WITH TEAMMATES while crossing home plate after hitting a home run on Tuesday, at Craig Middle School. The Bulldogs beat the Steamboat Springs High School Sailors, 9-3, behind home runs from Costello, Dylon Camilletti and Bubba Ivers.

Birthday Bash Scott Costello homers on birthday to lead MCHS baseball over Steamboat, 9-3 By BEN BULKELEY DAILY PRESS WRITER

Last summer, Scott Costello couldn’t believe he had hit his first career home run until it left the yard. On Tuesday, it was déjà vu all over again for the Moffat County High School senior. Costello, who celebrated his birthday on Tuesday, brought his own fireworks in the way of a two-run home run in the fourth inning to pace MCHS in its 9-3 win Tuesday over Steamboat Springs High School at Craig Middle School. “I felt good when I hit it,” he said. “It was just like it was in the summer — when I hit it, I didn’t think it was gone. “But, I had to go for a jog.” Costello’s home run was just one of three for MCHS (6-5 overall, 4-4 in the Western

Slope League) after Dylon Camilletti launched his first career home run in the second inning. Bubba Ivers hit his first regular season home run in the fifth inning. For Camilletti, a junior, it was his first homer in high school. “I’ve been close before, but it always bounced off the fence,” he said. “Today, I got enough of it.” Because he wasn’t expecting his long fly ball to left center to get out, Camilletti thought he just had a long base hit. “I didn’t think it was going out,” he said. “I looked up, and saw the outfielders looking over the fence so I knew it was over.” Mark Doolin started the game for the Bulldogs and

pitched three innings and struck out six batters. Ivers came in and pitched four innings and racked up six strikeouts. “Bubba came in and threw strikes right away,” Costello said. “He hit his groove early.” Ivers, a freshman, was more excited about his pitching than his home run. “I was feeling great,” he said. “I felt better after the first inning I pitched. I was more confident.” MCHS jumped on the board with a run in the top of the first inning, but Steamboat Springs answered with a run off Bulldog error to knot the score at 1-1. Camilletti started the second inning with his home run, which cleared the leftfield fence, and the Bulldogs led,

3-1. Steamboat scored again in the third inning to make the score 3-2, before Costello hit his first home run of the season to get the Bulldogs up 5-2. “This was a good game for us,” Costello said. “We hit the ball hard and put it in play.” Notes: Ben Williams left the game in the first inning after being hit by a pitch… Ivers went 3 for 4 with three runs… Austin Sadvar, Halen Raymond, Nathan Hill and Kulen Turner all knocked in runs… Just like his first home run, which happened last summer, Costello knocked in Camilletti.

For the second time in a week, a Moffat County High School varsity coach has resigned. Volleyball coach Brianna Montgomery-Braun officially stepped down from her post as head coach April 22, and announced it to her team Monday. MontgomeryBraun, who lives in Baggs, Wyo., Brianna said she was Montgomery-Braun resigning for personal reasons. Her time at MCHS taught her a lot about coaching, and handling difficult situations, MontgomeryBraun said. “I learned a lot of good things from coaching,” she said. “You learn a lot about the other issues coaching entails. “There are a lot of different types of issues you have to handle when you’re the coach.” Montgomery-Braun led the Bulldogs to a 38-40 overall record since taking over as head coach halfway through the 2006 season. In 2007, her Bulldogs tore through the Western Slope League and amassed a 17-5 overall record, as Montgomery-Braun was named the league’s top coach. In 2008, the team went into rebuilding mode, and finished the season with a 5-12 record and missed the regional playoffs for the only time during MontgomeryBraun’s tenure. In 2009, the team went 9-14 overall, but a late surge landed the Bulldogs in the regional playoffs. The team fell to No. 1 seeded Eagle Valley, but rallied back to beat Battle Mountain. A loss to Rock Canyon ended the Bulldogs’ season. Montgomery-Braun said she didn’t have any regrets about her time as head coach of the Bulldogs, but leaving was not an easy decision. “I’m going to miss it,” she said. “I’m going to miss my girls. “You get so attached to them, See COACH on page 14

MCHS falls to Sailors LukeGraham FOR THE DAILY PRESS

The Steamboat Springs High School girls soccer team shook off more rust and a tough outing after the first day back from Spring Break, downing rival Moffat County, 4-0, on Tuesday in Craig. Steamboat, who fell 5-0 to Cheyenne Central on Monday, took a 3-0 first-half lead and was never really challenged. “It wasn’t bad,” Steamboat coach Rob Bohlmann said Tuesday. “We came away from (Monday), and it was a tough re-entry from Spring Break. We went in today with the mentality we could have done a lot more. We were a little better than how we showed” Monday. Steamboat (7-4 overall, 5-2 in the Western Slope League) took a 1-0 lead in the 12th minute when Joanie Bier scored. Emi Birch made it 2-0, and Carly Fox gave the Sailors a 3-0 lead in the first half. “They were very pretty goals,” Bohlmann said. “They were all nice fluid strikes.” Bier added another tally in

the 50th minute to make it 4-0. Bier, who was out until Monday with a knee injury, made an emphatic return to the lineup and should make the Sailors more potent as the season moves toward its end. Bohlmann said he would work Bier back into the lineup, and she’ll either play in a forward or center midfield position. “With this group, she has had such a presence in our attack,” Bohlmann said. “Collectively as a group we’ve done well to fill in the pieces with her absence. In this late stage of the season, it’ll be a boost to the group psychology.” Steamboat now prepares for a 6 p.m. showdown Thursday at Glenwood Springs. Glenwood leads the Western Slope League but lost to Steamboat earlier in the season. Steamboat traditionally struggles on Glenwood’s narrow field, and Bohlmann said a win would be a big motivational boost for the Sailors. “For us, a win would help us out psychologically as we go into that final stretch,” he said. “We’ll be the only team to hand Glenwood two losses.”

and this is such an amazing group.” MCHS athletic director Richard Wildenhaus said the volleyball program is losing more than just a coach. “We’re losing Brianna’s passion for the game,” Wildenhaus said. “She always had high expectations for her girls, and she always brought fire and intensity to the program.” There are now three vacant coaching positions at MCHS. The boys varsity basketball coaching position has been open since February after coach Steve Maneotis resigned, and longtime girls varsity basketball coach Craig Mortensen announced his retirement April 22. Wildenhaus said a search is underway for the three positions. “We’ve already started the search for a new coach,” Wildenhaus said. “The job is posted on our website (www., and we’re looking for someone to carry the torch.”

cost around $1.6 million. The rest of the project, including the additional baggage claim belt, is scheduled to start in April 2011 and will cost about $3.6 million. It is scheduled to be completed by November 2011. The majority of the project is being funded by Federal Aviation Administration grants, and contributions from the Colorado Department of Transportation, and area municipalities and governments. Craig Mayor Don Jones said he is pleased to see the construction projects at the airport. “It is the hub,” he said. “Everybody relies on that airport … we really have something to be proud of.” Ruppel said the airport is also a factor in the local economy and tourism. He said 70

percent of winter vacation travelers to the Yampa Valley come through YVRA. “That is a huge amount of revenue that comes into the valley through the airport,” he said. “You want to make sure that those people come back.” Throughout his presentation, Ruppel emphasized the importance of a pleasant passenger experience. He said studies have shown the local airport experience is a significant part of the decision-making process for visitors. “That is the first thing they see when they come into the valley and we are the last thing they see when they leave,” he said. “You can imagine that if you have a bad experience at the airport … that could cover your decision if you want to come back next year.” Beck, who also serves as the YVRA commission vice chairman, agrees. “It is a part of customer

CINCO: Group hopes to bridge cultural divide FROM PAGE 4

organization dedicated to bridging the gap between immigrants and the receiving population by offering classes and social events for both factions. “That’s our main goal — to bring the two populations together,” Bacon said. “There is some separation, but it’s not different than anywhere else. It’s the same challenge that every community faces.” But it’s a challenge that can be met head on with a celebration like Cinco de Mayo. “It’s a fun holiday with music and different foods and traditions,” Zalenzuela said. A traditional mariachi band from Glenwood Springs will perform Saturday along with Mexican dancers. There will be face painting, vendors and crafts, a piñata contest and a bouncy castle, among other activities and offerings. “The mariachi’s a favorite,” Bacon said. “You just can’t beat the mariachi. But my favorite part is to see people enjoy themselves. Then I know my job is done. But I have great volunteers to help me.” While Zalenzuela said she enjoys being a volunteer and being involved in community events, she also believes it’s important that both Mexican and American cultures recognize each other’s traditions. “There’s a lot of Mexican people here and they have to know we are all here together and we have to do Mexican traditions, too,” Zalenzuela said. “We have to share.”

Dear Annie: My husband’s older brother was married last year and we have since discovered that his wife is a compulsive liar. My brother-in-law is oblivious, but it hurts us to see him being treated this way by a woman he loves. Should we tell him his wife is constantly lying to him or should we just butt out and mind our own business? — Nebraska Dear Nebraska: If the lies are specific and damaging to his relationship with the family (e.g., she says your husband stole from her purse), you may set the facts straight. If she is lying about how much

money she spent on an outfit, that’s not your business. Pick your battles carefully or you will lose all of them. Dear Annie: Perhaps “Life’s a Beach” might consider my surefire way to get rid of unwanted guests. After dinner, I put all the dishes on the floor so the dog can lick them clean. I then pick them up and put them directly into the cupboards. You will never see those guests again. — Lick ‘Em Clean Dear Lick: We sure hope you pull all those dishes out of the cupboards and wash them as soon as the guests leave. Yuck.

Class of 2010

Attention Parents of 2010 Graduates:

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Even if something you’re presently negotiating looks like it is close to reaching a final agreement, don’t sign the deal until all the facts have been verified and things are actually a fait accompli. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Regardless of the circumstances you find yourself in, don’t pretend that you’ve taken care of something that you really haven’t. The truth will have a way of wiggling to the surface to bite you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — If you’ve been carelessly indulging all your extravagant whims lately, today could be a big day of reckoning. One way of or another, you’ll need to turn over a new leaf. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Take care that urgency or impatience on your part doesn’t cause you to reason unsoundly today. Forgo any temptations to hurry things along by making quick changes to something good you have going.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Take the necessary time to sort your plans out in a more concise order, even the immediate ones, instead of attempting to blindly proceed forward, taking on whatever occurs at the moment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Curtail any inclinations to count your chickens before they are hatched. There is a strong possibility the brood may be smaller than you anticipated. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It’s time to disengage from endeavors that have proven to be unproductive, instead of clinging to false hopes about things that probably will never happen. Let go without regrets. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Sometimes intuitive notions are good, but truer insights can be derived today by viewing certain situations on an intellectual level. Make your evaluations based on logic, not hunches. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) —

You could be invited to become part of a new group, but before you totally commit yourself to anything new, get to know the other members far better than you do at the moment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Prematurely taking bows for something you’ve yet to accomplish will prove to be embarrassing and even unwise. To save yourself any chagrin or difficulty, wait until the eagle has landed PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Plan carefully and leave nothing up to chance, especially if you’re dealing with something important. Periodically make a spot-check to be sure everything and everyone is heading in the same direction. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Regardless of how badly you want something, try to avoid deficit spending at this point in time. Thinking you’ll have the funds later on is optimistic but not necessarily realistic.
