Energy summit looks to fuel thought



Hume, a Moffat County Sheriff’s Office investigator, dropped out of the race for Moffat County coroner Feb. 27 because of a possible Hatch Act violation. Herod resigned April 2 from her job as the county’s chief deputy clerk and elections supervisor so she could remain eligible to run for clerk and recorder after the Office of Special Counsel

Kate Nowak, Yampa Valley Partners executive director, said the upcoming Fueling Thought Energy Summit will provide visitors with a local, national and global perspective on energy development. “Energy is very near and dear to us, but it is only when we plug in our Blackberry or turn on our light that we expect it to be there,” she said. The fourth annual Fueling Thought Energy Summit, hosted by Yampa Valley Partners, is scheduled for May 12 through 14. The summit will focus on what is new and different in energy development, Nowak said. “A lot of times, we go day in and day out with tunnel vision in our little communities and what is happening in our local mine or our local economic development,” she said. “What happens out there internationally does affect us here locally eventually.” Early bird registration to get discounted conference rates ends Friday. A conference pass for May 13 and 14 costs $175 before Friday, and $225 after. Individual day passes are also available. An early bird pass for May 13 costs $125 and a May 14 pass costs $95. After Friday, a May 13 pass costs $175 and a May 14 pass costs $145. The highlight of the three-day event will be a presentation from keynote speaker Bob Wendling,

‘A piece of the solution’ Local residents testify at capitol for limiting Hatch Act’s reach BY BRIAN SMITH DAILY PRESS WRITER

Sitting and waiting for more than three hours at the state capitol, and listening to heated committee debates between Colorado lawmakers, Craig resident Lila Herod was admittedly nervous. “You could see some tempers flaring,” she said. “When we got done with ours, they were all unanimous. All of them supported this totally, 100 percent.”


On Tuesday, Herod and K.C. Hume, two local residents impacted by the federal Hatch Act, and John Ponikvar, Moffat County Republican Central Committee chairman, traveled to Denver to testify before a Colorado House committee on state, veterans and military affairs. Herod, Hume and Ponikvar spoke in favor of a proposed House joint resolution aimed at limiting the Hatch Act’s scope. They testified alongside State


Rep. Randy Baumgardner, R-Hot Sulphur Springs, Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Cortez, and Secretary of State Bernie Buescher. The Hatch Act was enacted in 1939 to cover federal employees and was amended in 1940, adding state and local employees. It restricts the political activity of people employed by state or local executive agencies and who work in connection with programs financed in whole or in part by federal loans or grants.

CELEBRATION OF THE WORLDS: The Moffat County Literacy Council is hosting a community Literacy Festival from 3:30 to 6 p.m. today at the Boys & Girls Club of Craig, 1324 E. U.S. Highway 40. The event will feature activities for children and free books. For more information, call 826-0411.

TMH accepts 2009 audit



Saturday, May 1st 7 p.m. Moffat County High School Auditorium Admmission: FREE!



It was no ordinary year for The Memorial Hospital in 2009, and Certified Public Accountant Mike Rowe, of Stockman Kast Ryan, didn’t expect an ordinary financial audit. The cost abnormalities of moving into a new $42.6 million facility, as well as heavy turnover in the financial department, caused a few deficiencies in the audit, Rowe said as he presented the audit to the TMH board at its monthly meeting Wednesday. But, he touted TMH for its compliance and material strength throughout the process. “We got full cooperation from all the staff and had full access to anything we asked for,” said Rowe, prefacing his presentation to the board. “We


In other action, The Memorial Hospital board: • Approved, 6-0, a 2009 Medicare cost report provided by Don Hoerl, an accountant based in Colorado Springs. TMH is slated to receive $541,599 in reimbursements from Medicare and $15,340 from Medicaid. • Approved, 6-0, a recommendation by the finance committee to sign a two-year lease for the TMH Rehab Center to retain its physical therapy space in Centennial Mall. Rent will cost $1,278.25 per month for the first year and $1,339.20 per month for the second. • Heard an annual status report from Quorum Health Resources representative Mitch Edgeworth. Edgeworth sought to put a tangible dollar amount on the benefits QHR provides for its clients. TMH paid QHR $263,791 in 2009. The report estimated QHR services at a value of $1.7 million for enhancing revenue and cash flow, expense reduction and Medicare and Medicaid compliance.

Rowe said are common among hospital financial audits. First, the audit report states the hospital did not adjust employee health insurance accruals on a periodic basis, and an adjustment was made during the audit. Second, the loan for the new See TMH on page 26

had some unique challenges this year in finance with the construction of the facility and your regulatory agreement. But, we did get through it and we have a few findings but none that are material weaknesses or compliance issues, which is important.” TMH board members accepted the audit in a 6-0 vote. Obvious changes in the audit from 2008 to 2009 were reflected by TMH’s capital assets and long-term debt, both of which can be attributed to the new facility, which was completed and moved into ahead of schedule in November 2009. Capital assets increased from $17.8 million to more than $47 million, however the debt increased accordingly, reaching $36 million by the end of 2009. Despite these adjustments, Rowe said the hospital’s net assets remained relatively steady from 2008 to 2009, decreasing by $111,000. On a positive note, Rowe said TMH made improvements in collecting on patient accounts and increased its patient service revenue by 9 percent. The audit identified three “significant deficiencies,” which

Arizona’s ugly immigration law is needed By JONAH GOLDBERG

Appreciate hard work To the editor: My family and I would really like to thank Andy and Jolene Keith, Toni, Buffi and Tammi Birch and her 4-H group (the Colts and Fillies) and the entire Murdoch’s staff for the great time Saturday. This 4-H group did a great job of serving up the cheeseburgers and keeping the long lines going. Kudos to you all. My family,, while enjoying this good food, visiting with friends and enjoying the Murdoch sales, was really disappointed by some of the comments we heard from some of our local residents there for the barbecue. There were some who were upset because of the lack of fixings for the burgers. Really, people? This was a barbecue to help raise money for a hard-working group of young people in our community. What did your really expect for 25 cents? You should feel lucky — you normally couldn’t even get a slice of cheese for that amount. And, griping because they ran out of buns? They sent someone to pick up more and they did so as quickly as they could. This group of young people served a lot of cheeseburgers in a short amount of time to a whole lot of people. They all were very friendly and helpful all the while keeping smiles on their faces. Next time, please try and remember why these young people do this. Enjoy the food without griping. I apologize to this group of young people for the lack of understanding and pettiness of some people there, but please know that myself and my entire family appreciated your hard work and willingness to do this.

Woe unto those who remodel N

ow that I’ve written about my kitchen remodel, people are coming out of the woodwork to wish me well, offer advice or, mostly, BOOMER scare the bejeGIRL ezus out of me with horrifying cautionary tales. The other day, I was a guest at a ladies luncheon. Over chicken salad and Cathy Hamilton dainty cinnamon rolls, the conversation turned to the horrors of kitchen remodeling. It was like listening to war veterans trade battle stories. “It got so bad, we had to rent a trailer and live in it for the duration,” one woman said. “Parked it right on our property …” “I know a builder’s wife,” another woman explained, “who waited for a new kitchen for years, only to have it delayed, time and again, because her husband’s customers took priority. Finally, they got around to doing it, but she couldn’t have a warming drawer. Her son said, ‘No, Mom, it’s too expensive!’ It was the only thing she really wanted! Can you imagine? Denied a warming drawer by your own son?!” The ladies murmured. “Oh, dear.” “Tragic.” “That’s just not right.”

“You think that’s bad,” another one piped up. “I found drywall dust in my closet!” “The dust!” still another chimed in. “We had it for a whole year afterward!” “It’s horrible,” agreed yet another. “And, it gets in your hair, too!” “I went out and bought Head and Shoulders because I thought it was dandruff!!” After lunch, one woman shot me an urgent “Pzzzzt!” and pulled me around the corner, away from the others. She whispered, “I just want to say one word to you. Just one word.” “Plastics?” I asked, suddenly feeling like Dustin Hoffman in “The Graduate.” “Paper,” she replied, her eyes warily darting about. “Paper plates. “And, yes, plastic! Plastic knives and forks. Use them, landfills be damned! Don’t even think about washing dishes in the bathroom sink. It’ll bring you to your knees.” The expression on her face convinced me she had learned that lesson the hard way. “How long ago was it?” I asked, patting her shoulder, assuming the wounds were fresh. “Fifteen years” she answered, heaving a sigh. “But, you never forget.” Then, I thought about it symbolically. The kitchen is the heart of the home. Picture your heart, ripped out and destroyed, then painstakingly rebuilt, piece by piece, over

several months time. In the interim, no lively morning banter over coffee and cereal. No happy family dinners around the table where everyone talks about their day and compliments the tuna casserole. Imagine the Cleavers, Bradys or Huxtables without a kitchen. It’s unthinkable! Clearly, there is a bond — a sisterhood, if you will — between the brave women who have endured the trials and tribulations of this domestic trauma and survived. Would I survive, I wondered? Could I? Not without heaping helpings of understanding and consolation, I decided. I’m going to need these women — or women like them — when I start finding drywall dust in places I didn’t know had places. There ought to be a support group for women going through “the change.” A 12-step program or, at the very least, Facebook groups. I think I’ll start my own, just as soon as I pick out backsplash tile and cabinet pulls, and research the pros and cons of convection ovens. Then, there’s the center island layout, electrical outlet placement and appliance configuration to consider, and, well, I just don’t know when I’ll find the time. So, if you’ve “been there — done that” and have any advice, I’m all ears. You know where to reach me. In the meantime, I’ve got to look into warming drawers. I hear they’re the new kitchen “must-have.”

On Monday, Matt Lauer of “Today” interviewed Joe Arpaio, the Maricopa County, Ariz., sheriff who’s made a national name for himself cracking down on illegal immigration. Lauer noted that Arizona’s new immigration bill has the support of 70 percent of Arizonans. “But get this,” Lauer added, “53 Jonah Goldberg percent of those same people said they worry it could lead to civil rights violations.” Lauer and other commentators seem to think that there’s something of a contradiction here. I don’t see it, perhaps because it describes my own position so well. I support the Arizona law, but I’m also worried that it could lead to civil rights abuses. I agree that there’s something ugly about the police, even local police, asking citizens for their “papers” (there’s nothing particularly ugly about asking illegal immigrants for their papers, though). There’s also something ugly about American citizens being physically searched at airports. There’s something ugly about IRS agents prying into nearly all of your personal financial transactions. In other words, there are many government functions that are unappealing to one extent or another. That is not in itself an argument against them. The Patriot Act was ugly — and necessary. President Barack Obama seems to get this, sort of: “Indeed, our failure to act responsibly at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others. And that includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona.” This is awfully tendentious since he takes it as a given that Arizona’s effort to take some responsibility for a problem is best understood as “irresponsible,” as if continuing to do nothing at the local level while too little is done at the federal level would be more responsible. Of course, “irresponsible” is lavish praise compared with charges of “apartheid” and “Nazi” coming from some opponents of the law. Regardless, Obama is right insofar as Arizona’s effort is the inevitable consequence of Washington’s inability to take illegal immigration seriously. Which is why the Democrats’ sudden decision to push for “comprehensive” immigration reform is so disappointing. If this were a sincere effort at reform, it would be laudable. But it’s almost impossible to find anyone in Washington not paid to spout Democratic talking points who believes this is anything but a naked political ploy.

Mental Health Month activities set Colorado West Regional Mental Health Center acknowledges May as Mental Health Month, which has been officially recognized since 1949. Colorado West puts forth the message to area communities that treating the body without treating the mind is not treating the person. Behavioral health disorders will surpass all physical diseases worldwide, and mental illness is the leading cause of disability in the United States, resulting in 217 million days of work lost annually due to productivity decline, more than many other chronic conditions. Colorado is ranked as the 18th most depressed state and has the ninth highest suicide rate in the United States. Lack of access to mental health services is listed repeatedly as one of the top five

health threats in 23 communities around the state of Colorado. A statewide collaborative of groups observe “Mental Health Month” each May to raise awareness and understanding of mental health. “Access to medically necessary medication and treatment helps prevent individuals from ending up in emergency rooms and corrections facilities and from becoming homeless and, most importantly, prevents suicide, and it costs 6.5 times more to incarcerate an individual experiencing mental health issues than to treat them in the community,” Colorado West CEO Sharon Raggio said. “An important message of May is Mental Health Month is people who have mental illnesses can recover and lead full, productive lives. “In fact, good mental health is essential to the overall health

and emotional wellbeing of Colorado’s children, youth, adults and families.” Free mental health awareness webcasts will be offered from 3 to 4 p.m. in May. The schedule is: May 5 — Understanding depression; May 12 — Understanding anxiety disorders; May 19 — Understanding psychosis; and May 26 — Understanding substance use disorders. The webcasts are offered by the national advocacy and public education organization, the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare. Participants need to pre-register at https://www2.gotomeeting. com/register/176709011. For more information on mental health and available services, call Craig Mental Health at 8246541.

TESTIFY: Resolution to amend Hatch Act unanimously approved by committee FROM PAGE 1

determined she was in violation of the Hatch Act. The House committee approved the resolution, 11-0, which was drafted by Baumgardner and Tipton and introduced to the House on April 15. It urges Congress to amend the Hatch Act “to allow the United States Office of Special Counsel to grant limited exceptions for those individuals interested in running for partisan political office in rural areas whose positions preclude them … solely because of their arm’s-length involvement with federal monies.” The resolution will be sent to the House for a first reading in the next few days. It must pass in the

state House and Senate before it can be sent to Congress. The resolution also outlines problems caused by the Hatch Act in small communities like Craig. It states that “Rural areas of Colorado currently face a shortage of candidates qualified for public office,” and “the pool of candidates … is further diminished by the provisions of the Hatch Act.” Baumgardner said some committee members were at first skeptical of the resolution. After hearing Hume, Herod and Ponikvar’s testimonies, however, Baumgardner said the committee agreed it was a worthwhile pursuit. In her testimony, Herod talked about her position in the clerk

and recorder’s office, a grant she wrote to fund improvements at the Hamilton Community Center and the decision to quit her job. Herod said she was happy to see she could make a difference. “It made us all feel really good that we did something that was not partisan and we all came together on that,” she said. Hume addressed how the Hatch Act affected his candidacy for county coroner, the affect the act has on the political landscape and its impact on this year’s election in Moffat County. Hume said he got a sense of accomplishment from testifying and seeing the resolution proceed further in the process. “My hopes are that as this moves forward and makes it way

to Washington, D.C., that it may be a piece of the solution or a catalyst for the government to revaluate the Hatch Act and how it applies in today’s political environment,” he said. Ponikvar said his testimony focused on how the Hatch Act is affecting communities of all sizes. He also told the committee that he is in favor of the resolution to change the Hatch Act because of the amount of federal grant money that is becoming more readily available for communities. Baumgardner said he hopes the resolution will change some minds on the federal level and get previous federal bills that have addressed the Hatch Act, like HR 2154, out of committee and back into discussion.

HR 2154 was introduced in April 2009 and is currently in the committee on oversight and government reform. It seeks to amend the Hatch Act to not affect communities smaller than 100,000 people. A representative from the office of Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., said the senator is currently looking into Baumgardner’s resolution, HR 2154 and the Hatch Act in general. “We are hoping with this resolution … that we are going to get some action on this,” Baumgardner said. “We are also going to continue to call our members of Congress and see if we can’t get some more involvement to put some more pressure on Congress.”

Stocks climb after Fed decides to hold rate steady on the domestic economy. In an economic assessment statement that accompanied the Fed’s decision to keep interest rates stable, the central bank said the labor market is “beginning to improve” and it noted that housing starts have edged up. The statement, which came at the end of a two-day policymaking meeting, did say that employers are still reluctant to hire, but that came as no surprise to investors. The Fed said it expects to

keep rates low for an “extended period” to help strengthen the economy. “The Fed essentially kicked the can down the road,” said Burt White, chief investment officer at LPL Financial in Boston. Eventually the Fed will have to raise rates, but that might not happen now until early in 2011, White said. But the Fed’s view of the economy is actually more conservative than data suggests, White said.

That’s because it is concerned about European debt problems, White added, noting that a slowdown in Europe’s economy could slow U.S. exports and affect the domestic recovery. Earnings provided a boost to stocks throughout the day. Cable company Comcast, defense contractor Northrop Grumman and Dow Chemical were the latest companies to top earnings expectations. Tim Courtney, chief invest-

Market in review brought to you by:

ment officer at Burns Advisory Group in Oklahoma City, said that improving sales at companies like Dow Chemical prove the economy is healing. “It indicates consumers may be getting back on their feet,” Courtney said.

MATT RAY WAS NAMED as the new Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball coach Wednesday. Ray, a 1992 MCHS graduate and former college basketball played, was an assistant coach since 2002.

‘The obvious choice’ MCHS names Matt Ray girls varsity basketball coach By BEN BULKELEY DAILY PRESS WRITER

The Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team has staked its reputation on being the hardest working team on the court, regardless of the opponent. Matt Ray plans on keeping it that way. Ray, 36, was named head coach Wednesday, taking over for longtime coach Craig Mortensen, who retired April 22. While the coaches have changed, Ray said the team’s work ethic and commitment to winning won’t. “There won’t be a lot of changes,” he said. “It will still be all about hard work.” Ray is no stranger to the MCHS gym.

“No matter where you are, if you work hard enough, you’ll achieve your goals.” Matt Ray new MCHS girls varsity basketball coach

The 1992 MCHS graduate played four years of basketball under Mortensen, and has coached with him as an assistant coach since 2002. In 2009, Ray also served as the high school’s interim athletic director. “I wasn’t an athlete where it was all handed to me,” Ray said. “I had to work every day. I just hope to bring that aspect to our program. “No matter where you are, if you work hard enough, you’ll achieve your goals.” Because of his familiar-

ity with Mortensen’s style, Ray said the team’s identity wouldn’t change dramatically. “There’s no difference in our offensive or defensive schemes,” he said. “I don’t see a whole lot of changes due to the fact that hard work is what we’ve done to be successful.” But, while the defense and offense won’t change, there is a difference between Mortensen and Ray’s approach. “He was more of a fiery coach,” Ray said. “I have more of a laid back attitude. “But, we both get our points across.” Freshman coach Norm Yoast will return as Ray’s assistant. Taking over the reigns from Mortensen is a big task, Ray said, but one he is ready to work toward.

“Those are pretty big shoes to fill,” he said. “The girls team has always been really consistent, and I hope to follow that tradition. “I’ve been here for eight years, so hopefully that has rubbed off on me.” Ray attended Central Christian College for two years and played basketball for one. He then attended Spring Arbor University in Michigan, where he played for three years. “I wasn’t always the best player, but I was one of the hardest working players,” he said. “I was cut from the team my freshman year in college. “I found out that I had to work harder, and I ended up playing four years in college.” After he graduated, Ray See COACH on page 12

DENVER (THE DENVER POST) — Granted, Coors Field isn’t Coors Field anymore, not the Coors Field that used to produce, as former Phillies manager Jim Fregosi once called it, pinball baseball. But even with the humidor and the Rockies’ improved pitching, we’re reminded every once in a while that baseball in Denver is different than baseball anywhere else. Wednesday, for instance, when the Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks swapped six-run innings in the early going and battled deep into the afternoon before Kelly Johnson homered off Franklin Morales to give the Diamondbacks a 12-11 victory in 10 innings. The Rockies, given their overworked bullpen and rash of injuries in the rotation, needed a well-pitched game from Greg Smith. But that notion lasted less than one inning as Smith was lit up for six runs in the top of the first, sending his ERA skyrocketing to 7.33. But Smith escaped unscathed in the won-lost department, thanks to a Rockies hitting attack that saw them bat around in the third and fourth innings. Carlos Gonzalez got the fireworks display started with a solo home run to open the second. The Rockies racked up six runs and six hits in the third, two scoring on a two-run double by Troy Tulowitzki. But then, Tulowitzki is supposed to come up with those kinds of hits. Matt Belisle isn’t. Belisle, in a classis display of just how wild and crazy the game was, got three at-bats after relieving Smith in the second inning. On his second at-bat, he lined a two-run double down the leftfield line, giving him one more RBI than he had in his first six major league seasons. Colorado led 11-9 in the eighth before the D-Backs rallied for two runs off Rafael Betancourt to tie it. That set the stage for Johnson’s game-winning home run, which gave him a National League-leading eight homers.

alleged in court filings that some jurors discussed the murder case before deliberations and visited a scene described by a witness, and that a dismissed juror sent a text message to another during deliberations, all in violation of the judge’s orders. Prosecutors disputed those claims and were concerned that a hearing on the matter could not take place before Friday’s sentencing hearing. Chief Deputy District Attorney Tim Twining on Monday asked Habas for time to examine the defense’s allegations and prepare a challenge. That request was rendered moot by Habas’ ruling Tuesday declining the defense request for a new trial. Cantor did not immediately return a message seeking comment. The Denver District

Attorney’s Office said they are prepared for Friday’s sentencing hearing as scheduled. Prosecutors say Clark lived in a gang culture where an insult was enough to send him into a murderous rage. Williams and the others in his group had just left a nightclub where they got into an altercation with a group that included Clark, a suspected gang member. The altercation started as an entourage of Broncos players entered a nightclub and escalated when a member of Williams’ group sprayed champagne on New Year’s partiers, prosecutors said. Witnesses during the trial testified that Clark desperately searched for a gun, hopped into an SUV to catch up with a limousine carrying Williams, and then fired the deadly shots.

DENVER (AP) — The man convicted of killing Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams has lost his initial bid for a new trial. Denver District Judge Christina Habas turned down the request Tuesday from Willie Clark, saying defense attorneys failed to provide sufficient evidence to justify a new trial. A jury convicted Clark of first-degree murder in Williams’ death on New Year’s Day 2007, after both men had left the same night club. Clark faces a life sentence at a hearing set for Friday. Clark was also convicted of attempted murder and assault charges in the attack that injured two others. Several people are expected to speak at Clark’s sentencing hearing.

became the Hayden High School boys varsity head coach and served in that role from 1998 to 2001. Ray said he likes the teamoriented style of play in girls basketball. “You see them trying to work the system you’ve instilled,” he said. “It’s definitely a team concept in girls basketball. They seem to care about each other and they pass up opportunities because they are so team

oriented.” Keeping the team’s talent together and building up good team chemistry could carry the Bulldogs a long way, Ray said. “My first goal is, we haven’t won the league in two years,” he said. “I want to start winning it again. “You always want to make it to the finals, and win the big one. That’s the ultimate goal.” Richard Wildenhaus, MCHS athletic director, said Ray was his first choice to replace Mortensen. “We felt that Matt was the obvi-

He knows what makes them work and he knows their tendencies.” Ray’s familiarity with the program made Wildenhaus’ decision even easier, he said. “I can’t imagine having another coach,” he said. “He’s the right fit.” Ben Bulkeley can be reached at 875-1795 or

How should I handle a relative who is acting childish? Dear Annie: My wife’s 84-year-old mother lives with us. My wife’s cousin, “Erma,” lives two hours away and occasionally sends letters and newspaper clippings to Mom to keep ANNIE’S her updated on MAILBOX happenings in the old hometown. Erma is also very punctual with cards on special occasions. Mom reciprocates by calling her often and sending cards of her own. Recently, Kathy and Marcy Mom lost her only sibling. Two weeks after the funeral, Erma celebrated her birthday. Mom sent a birthday card, but it was a week late. My wife, admittedly not a card person, called Erma to wish her a happy birthday and left

a message inviting her to our home for dinner. There was no response. A few days later, a letter arrived from Erma, saying she was very hurt not to receive a birthday card on time. My wife tried to explain that no one forgot her birthday, but circumstances were difficult and an effort was made to celebrate it later. Erma responded that she “doesn’t believe in late birthday cards,” and that even though she is busy, she always finds time to write to Mom.

A 5-year-old has no business using a potty chair at all, nor should she have been allowed to undress herself in front of guests. Why would any parent encourage this? And the idea

African drum ming inspires students

by Brittany Madigan reporter

Every year students of MCHS look forward to the last week of school. Not only because summer vacation is just around the corner, but because it means students will receive their much anticipated yearbooks. Students on the yearbook staff put about eight months into the production of the yearbook starting in late August and finishing in April. Making the yearbook takes teamwork and skill. The yearbook staff designs, writes, and takes full responsibility for the yearbook. To learn how to build a better yearbook,

three MCHS students: juniors Jentry Cattoor, Kim Hill, and sophomore Lexi Drgac flew to New York City during Spring Break for the Columbia Journalism Convention. They participated in sessions during the day teaching students how to properly use Photoshop and InDesign, how to ask people for information, and how to interview them for the yearbook. The students attended four sessions per day on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Students were in New York from April 16, to April 20.

Private Solo and Ensemble held for MCHS choir students Alex Selan reporter

Feet tap and hands flutter betraying the students nervousness. The judicator, Cathleen Allen finishes her notes and looks up to call the next singer into the limelight. On April 9th, MCHS held its own Solo and Ensemble contest in the auditorium for a small group of choir students. Due to general scheduling issues, the MCHS choir could not attend the Solo Ensemble held in rangley earlier this year. Mr. MullensÕ solution to this was simple: put together a private ensemble. A very small group of MCHS choir students attended along with local 8th grader, Megan Gingrich, and Steamboat Springs student, Chelsea Marie. Ò The idea is to have someone other than the teachers they work with everyday giving them things to improve. It gives the students an outsiders perspective, and the

perspective of another singer.Ó said pianist Julia Foster. Ò Some of these students picked their pieces months ago, just to prepare for this,Ó Foster added. One such student is senior Amanda Browning who sang Ò VedraiÓ . Ò Singing in different languages is definitely more difficult because you have to not only learn the music but understand the language as well. It really does show the judges how hard your willing to work.Ó said Browning. She has been singing most her life and although this is her third performance, she still gets nervous singing in front of the judge. Annie Mcpherson agreed, Ò It makes me really nervous singing in front of a judge, just for the fact that they are there to tell you what you did wrong. It was a lot better on a smaller basis. It would have been so much worse singing for an audience.Ó Mr. Mullens said that holding their own Ensemble gave them

much more flexibility, as well as let him set it up in a way that would be much more personal to his students. Ò I wanted to limit the number of students we had performing. It gave the judicator more time to really work with the student instead of rushing through to the next. Even though a few parents came i wanted the students to have a small audience. That way they could concentrate on the music,Ó Mullens said. Personal is exactly what Allen aimed for in her criticism. She went over minute details with each student that stepped up to the microphone. Individually and as a group she coached the choir students through their songs. Giving not only constructive criticism but tips on everything from posture to resonance. For Allen, this wasnt the first time she had been asked to be judicator for such an ensemble. According to Mr. Mullens she was also a judicator at the Solo and Ensemble that the MCHS

chior students attended last year. Ò She really connected with the students. She gives great

feedback not only telling the students what to improve on but also complementing them on their abilities,Ó Mullens said.

Jazz Fest 2010: Ô 40 years & still burningÓ

Despite time crunch, choir performed well

by Emily Miller editor

UNCÕ s Jazz Fest celebrated their 40th anniversary this year, while I celebrated my first year in attendance. Going off expectations that class mates in Jazz Choir and Jazz Band have built up for me, I was not disappointed at all. Although, due to time constraints, I felt we were rushed into our performance, we performed very well and the judges were very professional and knew what they were doing. The ensemble performed Ô And So It GoesÕ , featuring senior Daniel McClellan and junior Emily Miller as soloists, and Ô Voice Dance IIÕ . The Jazz choir and bandsÕ hard work

payed off as both ensembles earned two ones. Outside of the competition aspect of the festival, we watched the UNC Voices ensemble and Patti Austin on April 22. I was very impressed with both acts. The Voices performed with a lot of energy and pizazz, very suiting for the group of six that belted and practically murmured four jazz numbers. The main act was Grammy nominated and winning Patti Austin. Austin has had along career of performing, her most successful project being Ò For EllaÓ , a collection of Ella Fitzgerald covers. She primarily performed Fitzgerald songs and also told the audience about FitzgeraldÕ s life. She was, in my opinion, quirky and humorous, which added to the performance. Even though the drive home was snowy and rainy, the time spent in Greeley was something I enjoyed greatly and am looking forward to next year for.

Band sets records and enjoys guest performances by Kyle Boss reporter

Music speaks to the soul and what better music to listen to then jazz. That is exactly what the Jazz Festival is about. Jazz Fest is held in Greeley, Colorado. Jazz Fest brings together many recognized artists and jazz lovers. In fact, over 7,500 participants attend daytime performances, main stage concerts and workshops. This year however, was an extra special one to the whole event. This year was the 40th anniversary of Jazz Fest The slogan that was emphasized many times was, Ò 40 years and still burning.Ó The featured artists this year are were Patti Austin, The Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra and The Woody Herman Orchestra Tribute. All concerts were phenomenal. Not only are there many educational workshops and breath taking concerts but there is also a slot where students can perform and get feedback from the 40 clinicians. The feedback really helps improve students musicianship and is a chance to get useful

tips from professionals. Thursdays are for Jazz Choir performances and Fridays are left for the instruments. Jazz Choir and Jazz Band from Moffat County High School traveled to Greeley early Thursday morning to attend this great festival. The MCHS Jazz Band performed four pieces Friday morning. The band has been preparing for months on these songs to try and perfect them for FridayÕ s performance. As the clock struck nine thirty, the Jazz and filed into the performance room. Ò I was nervous but I knew we were going to do great. We worked a great deal on these songs and I knew them inside outÓ said Casey Martin, a trombonist in the band. Just as Casey suspected, the band did fantastic. The MCHS Jazz band ended up taking home a two and one from the performance. It is believed this is the best the Jazz Band has done in about six years. Ò Now that Jazz Festival is over, I canÕ t wait until next year!Ó commented Mitch Romney on the ride home from Greeley.

Yearbook travels to New York; gets in depth experience by Brittany Madigan reporter

Continued from page 1 Casey Kilpatrick explained how he decided on the students he took. Ò I chose students who showed an aptitude toward publication, production, and design. Based on the body of work from my class, the three students emerged and showed great skill. All of my students are very talented and I wanted to take them all. However, financially it is impossible. I also chose students that were not seniors and who are

concessions and an advertising campaign for the yearbook. The rest of the money was raised on their own. Yearbook wasnÕ t the only topic students focused on while in New York. Ò We covered a lot of ground. IÕ d say we probably walked about 10 miles per day,Ó said Kilpatrick. The group visited the cafŽ where the TV show Seinfeld was filmed, took a ferry by the Statue of Liberty, visited the Museum of Modern Art, traveled to Chinatown, and went to see Ò West Side StoryÓ on Broadway. Ò Going to New York was such a fun

experience. We covered a lot of topics. I got so much from it,Ó said junior Jentry Cattoor. Next year will be CattoorÕ s second year on the yearbook staff and first year as Editor-in-Chief.

Ò An advantage of taking yearbook is knowing almost everyone at school now. This was my first year and it was very productive. I no longer need to ask for help when using Photoshop and I feel like writing has become easier,Ó said Cattoor. Yearbooks will be delivered the week before school gets out. There will be an advisory schedule on Friday, May 22, which will be the Yearbook Signing Day. Students will be allowed to gather in the commons areas and cafeteria to sign each otherÕ s yearbooks. Ò I hope to get a lot of memories out of this yearbook. ItÕ s also very cool and important we get time to sign yearbooks because the seniors are leaving and we donÕ t usually get their signatures when we donÕ t have a set time to sign yearbooks,Ó said junior, Tucker Trujillo. The theme of this yearÕ s yearbook is Kapow! Ò We chose this theme because we wanted to emphasize the suddenness with which high school hits students and the community. Before they know

it, students are walking during graduation and wondering where the time went. The theme also allowed us to implement a cool, trendy comic book style,Ó said Kilpatrick. This yearÕ s yearbook is more unique than past books because the page size is bigger than in years past. The design, art, and writing have all taken a

major step forward. The yearbook staff made it a point of emphasis to cover as many students as possible. Ò This yearÕ s coverage is the best itÕ s been since IÕ ve been the advisor,Ó said Kilpatrick. According to the yearbook staff, next year’s book will reflect a lot of the class 2011 and will be like a newer version of old.

Skier Nathan Hill does a flip during the AST trip.

This semester the advance science topics class, taught by Heather Sweet and Amber Clark, has brought many new science experiences to students. From constructing projects ranging from: trebuchets, a model of what a mars colony would be like and an animal training course with rats, the advance science topics class is far from boring. The main idea of the class is said in the name. A broadened assortment of science skills for students looking to get out of the norm and expand their science knowledge. Students learn survival skills, learning about ecosystems, physics and fly fishing. Senior, Anna McIntosh, said her favorite part about the class is, Ò Learning survival skills and doing interesting activities instead of what a normal boring science class does.Ó One of the projects that the AST class is currently doing, is an animal behavior course. It details the students training and taking care of rats. Then putting the rats through obstacle courses that include

the rats going through balance beams, teeter-totters and tunnels. Besides the many projects the class does, the students also get the chance to go on a variety of field trips to test their survival skills. One of these was a trip to Rabbit Ears Pass which happened Students in the Advanced Science Topics in February of this year. The class made snow shelters during a trip to students learned the basics of Rabbit Ears Pass. many snow survival skills. avalanche was like by having students The trip started off with many students learning how to snow shoe in stand on top of a cave and collapsing it the deep snow up above Steamboat.

by Lewis Carroll in Ô Alice in WonderlandÓ Lights flicker and flash as crowds of bewildered guests watch Alice being drawn from the known world into a mischievous land known as Wonderland. The adaptation of Ô Alice in WonderlandÕ by William Glennon was performed at Moffat County High School by a group of stage-friendly students Thursday, April 15 through Saturday April 17. Overseeing the production was first-time MCHS director and third year English teacher, Casey Kilpatrick. Steering the events of the play, scene by scene was lead character Alice, double casted as junior Emily Miller and freshman Carli Griffith on alternate showings. Both also played the Knave of Hearts. This story of Ò Alice in WonderlandÓ differs from the Walt Disney animated version by removing characters like the Caterpillar, the twins and the talking flowers. The version also incorporates new characters such as the Mock Turtle played by sophomore Brittany Madigan; the Frog Footman, junior Caitlyn Georgiou; Fish Footman, junior Emmi Hall and the Cook, freshman Jaremie Ogden.

The Duchess, played by sophomore Jordyn Caddy, made a return appearance in this adaptation. She was in the original story by Lewis Carroll and not in the Disney version. The play also included classical characters such as the Mad Hatter, sophomore Cody Fallon; the Cheshire Cat, senior Jesse Montoya; the White Rabbit, junior Tucker Trujillo; the March Hare, junior Jentry Cattoor; the King and Queen of Hearts, freshman Travis Johnson; and senior Janna Thompson; and the Dormouse, freshman Alexis Losolla. The typical Ò Alice in WonderlandÓ story is directed toward a younger audience and sets a great theme. Ò The humor, line delivery and scenes all reflect the idea that Ô AliceÕ is for kids and we want them to use their imagination,Ó said Kilpatrick. Working hard and with long hours, the cast and crew of the play began practice in February and worked until they performed for the public in April. Ò IÕ m gonna miss practice, we all turned into a family,Ó Madigan

said. The cast membersÕ most recommended scene was the Mad Hatter scene. Ò The Mad Hatter is what people remember in Ô Alice in WonderlandÕ ,Ó said Cattoor. Several scenes in the play seemed to be Ò spiced upÓ compared to the Disney Version. Ò I let my heart out on stage, even when I was dancing to Lady Gaga,Ó Fallon commented. Another favorite character in Ò Alice in WonderlandÓ is the Cheshire Cat. Ò My job is to make Alice as uncomfortable as possible,Ó said Montoya. The play received much appreciated support from the community. The Craig Daily Press, KRAI, The Print Shop and Chaos Ink all helped with either advertising or printing. Miller Family Appliance provided cardboard for props. Tim BurtonÕ s release of Ò Alice in WonderlandÓ March 5, 2010 set AliceÕ s return trip to Wonderland. Ò His version established a familiarity with Ô AliceÕ and got people excited to see another version,Ó said Kilpatrick.

Junior Emily Miller was double casted as Alice in the Spring Play, Alice in Wonderland, which was performed April 15,16 and 17.

Athletics Baseball season starts out great Moffat County High School

The pitcher on the Bulldogs baseball team hurls the ball to the opposing teams batter. Sweat dripping off a hat covered brow, cleats digging into freshly raked soil, white pants stained with grass and sand, sound of bats hitting balls across the field radiates throughout the town, signals to the community that it is baseball season. Preparing for the rest of the season by practicing would sound as though it is a normal ritual for the Moffat County High School baseball team. However, this year, the weather is proving to be a problem. As opposed to playing on the field, snow has forced the team to practice inside on the gym floor. Before their home game on Tuesday April 13, players seemed a bit concerned about how their game would hold up.

Ò The year hasnÕ t gone as well as we hoped it would, we the crowd waiting for the game.

Along with Blackstun, freshman Trevor Goodwin and sophomore Carlos Maldonado share the second base spot on the team. Maldonado is coming into his second year of playing baseball on the High School level. Ò While practicing inside we usually practice our hitting, grounding balls and batting,Ó said Maldanado.

Girls Golf overcomes closed courses by John Kirk reporter

The Moffat County High School Girls Golf team has encountered many complications in the start of their season. These complications included horrible weather, causing inability to practice on the course, stressful tournaments and one day of actual practice. However, the team plans to side step these slight setbacks and perform to the best of their abilities. The team consists of senior Heather Nicholson, juniors Nike Cleverly and Callie Papoulas, sophomores Jamie Brown and Sam Fox and freshman Makayla Camilletti and Nastassjia Voyich. Nicholson has competed on the varsity level all four years of high school. Nicholson started golfing

competitively at the age of 12 when she started competing in the junior golfing bracket through out the state. Nicholson was taught the basics of golfing by her sister, Amber Nicholson and her mom, Susan Nicholson. Ò I think that we have a very good group of athletes that want to go further and succeed so hopefully we will have a very good productive team this year.Ó said Coach Anmarie Roberts. Roberts, who has been coaching the team for four years, has golfed all her life and went on to become a competitor in the WomenÕ s Professional Golf Association (WPGA). She has also worked at the Yampa Valley Golf Course for 15 years as the local golf professional. Every spring and summer Roberts offers golf classes that many of the girls take advantage

of to prepare for the season. The only outside practice the girls have had was a nine hole round of golf at the local golf course in Rifle. Currently, because of the weather, the girls have been practicing in the East Elementary gym. Ò ItÕ s good that weÕ re still practicing inside instead of waiting, because we need the time and practice with the clubs,Ó said Fox. “I started golfing my freshman year because I had a friend that golfed, and she wanted me to do it with her. Now I am really into golf and enjoy it a lot,Ó said Fox. Fox competed in golf last year and plans to work hard and pay attention so that she can have a good chance at state this year and the next two. According to Nicholson, chipping and putting on the

course is much better. The team has been chipping and putting, using foam balls, called birdyballs, and frisbees. The team sets up frisbees in place of holes, and either chips, short arced shots,or putts. The East Elementary gym has a carpeted floor, which is more similar to the green than a regular gym would be. Many of the girls imagine the birdyballs and frisbees in place of the actual holes at a tournament. Ò ItÕ s crazy, but itÕ s true. We often times imagine the frisbee when chipping or putting onto the green. We have spent so much time using the the frisbee and birdy-balls, that it is a natural sight,Ó Nicholson said. The MCHS team has had two meets since the start of their season. One was in Grand Junction at Bookcliff

Golf Course; the other was at Battlement Mesa Golf Course in Parachute. At the Grand Junction tournament Nicholson shot an 88 to win first place in 4A, a third place in 5A. Papoulas shot a 112. Cleverly shot a 103. Fox shot a 138. Camelletti shot a 119, at first varsity tournament. The girls won third place at the tournament, with their cumulative scores. At the Battlement Mesa tournament the girls didnÕ t shoot as well. Ò It was very hard because of horrible weather conditions and continuous bad shots,Ó said Nicholson after the Battlement tournament. The team plans to Ò hit the ground running,Ó at the local course once it opens so they can quickly improve their skills mentally and physically. while actually practicing on the course.

Track team prevails through weather by Jayme Colvin reporter

Although the weather has not been cooperating, it has not stopped the Moffat County High School track team from practicing outdoors. You will see them outside rain or shine, everyday after school. Ò The season is going very good. We had a lot of kids come out for the team. They work hard and are wanting to improve,Ó said Coach Lance Scranton. Scranton has coached track for 16 years. Ò I like coaching. Track is a sport where kids can pick an event to focus on and improve at,Ó said Scranton. The track team is very large this year with many members who are wanting to try somthing photo by Dustin Carlson new. This is junior Shey EllisÕ s first year in track. She throws Trackster Andy Browning back tucks the High Jump, shot put and discus. Ò I wanted attempting to beat his record at the Hayden to prove to myself that I can stick invitational on Saturday, April 24. with a sport and not get bored of it. Track is pretty sweet. I thought

it would be hard but itÕ s pretty easy. Really anyone who put their mind to it, can do itÓ said Ellis. Among the new there are also many returning team members from previous years. All members have goals for the team along with personal goals varying from lettering in an event to beating state records or improving personal times. Junior Kelley Syvertson has been in track since freshman year and competes in shotput and discus. She plans on joining track again next year, Ò I like the competition and think that it is a fun sport,Ó said Syvertson. Ò If I could give any advice to the people on the team, it would be, donÕ t slack because it doesnÕ t help you or your team mates.Ó This season there are two track meets at MCHS on April 22 and April 30. The meet on the 22 is a J.V. meet against Hayden. The meet on the 30 is the Clint Wells Invitational which will have teams from Meeker, Hayden, Roaring Forks, Soroco, West

Grand and possibly a team from Grand Junction. This year 11 seniors are on the team. Two of them, Jeremiah Gordon and Lindsey Yoast placed first in Discus while competeing at West Grand April 3. ItÕ s the last season for all seniors. The seniors are working harder than before to beat records and place high at meets. Yoast, the only female senior will continue doing track after she graduates. She will be throwing in college next year at Western State on a scholarship. Ò Well, since this is my senior year I really wanna break the school record and place at state. Right now I am ranked 9th in the state and if I keep working as hard as I am, I know I can get up into the top five,” said Yoast. This years regionals will be held at Mesa State College in Grand Junction, Thursday May 13 and Friday, May 14. The state competition will be over a course of three days, May 20 - May 22.

Girls soccer receives new coaches by Shannon Tochtrop editor

One of the biggest setbacks for, this season so far is the weather. The girls soccer team kicked off their season on Feb. 22. During their first few weeks of practice, they had to work inside, because of the weather not practicing outside until March 22. Their first game was scheduled for March 9, but had to be canceled due to the snow. This year the team has picked up quite a few new people, including the new head coach,Harry Tripp, and coach Cathy Copeland. Ò The new players are really fun, and they bring a lot of positive attitude,Ó said junior Kaitie Ellgen. Ellgen has been in soccer for the past three years and was in the Parks and Recreation soccer team in fifth grade. Tripp, has coached for seven years. Ò I was the coach for the Craig traveling team,Ó said Tripp. There arenÕ t very

many setbacks, besides weather, but there are 18 freshmen on the team. The only different thing from the traveling team, is it is a lot more high paced than usual. Ò ItÕ s a lot better than last year,Ó said junior Amanda Brewer about the new coaches. Ò He is awesome,Ó said Raquel Robinson. Robinson would like to go to college on a scholarship. Ò It would be nice.Ó Some of the girls on the team have been playing soccer for a long time, such as Brewer. Brewer has been playing since she was about four. Ò High school soccer is a lot more competitive. People get more in to it,Ó said Brewer. Brewer would like to go to college on a soccer scholarship. Ò I would like to go to college on a soccer scholarship,Ó said junior Araceli Rodriguez, Ò It would be nice.Ó Rodriguez has been in soccer her whole life, and has yet to figure out which college to go to. Ò In high school

But now you May 2 vs. Rifle. have to really work on it,Ó said Rodriguez. During a game against Roaring Fork High School, the schedule got switched. The coaches on the other team thought that the varsity was going first, and the J.V. was second. While MCHS coaches thought that the J.V. was first and varsity second.

Budget Meetings avoid questions by Kaci Meek reporter

Evasions. ThatÕ s about all we have been getting from the recent budget meetings. We ask a direct question, and they side step it like politicians. Sentences that begin with, Ò Well, hereÕ s the reason for that...Ó and Ò Well, IÕ m going to let (insert name here) answer that one,Ó makes it seem as if either they havenÕ t discussed that topic as a board, or they really donÕ t know the answer. These meetings originally started when student body president Slade Gurr wrote a letter to the Board of Education. He asked if they had even bothered to consider opinions from students affected by their decisions. [This is in my terms, not GurrÕ s.] Superintendent Dr. Petrone agreed that the studentsÕ opinions and thoughts should be heard, and their questions, answered. When the first budget meeting was set up, nobody really knew what it was going to be about, and I believe the students expected a presentation on what the proposed cuts were. That didnÕ t happen. Petrone began by asking if there were any questions, and the silence that followed was deafening.

As said, this is still rumor, but it does raise a few Needless to say, not many really knew what to eye-brows. ask.

Tobacco turns hallways into trash can

by April Rogers editor

There is nothing I love more than to walk into the back hallway to go to my next class and dodge various deposits of used chew. Or to go take a drink of water and notice an enormous clump of used chew in the drinking fountain. I am not judging those who use, but there are so many ways people could be more discrete, and I have had it with those who think it is Ò intelligentÓ to spit tobacco throughout our school. If you want to chew, it is your choice. But keep it in your decaying cesspool of a mouth. Nobody wants to smell, see or walk through the gingivitus infested clump of tobacco that was previously in someoneÕ s mouth. How difficult is it to take three extra steps and spit into a trash can? I am not advocating tobacco use; however, with the enormous amount of tobacco use on campus, students have respectfully requested that it be properly disposed of. And while I am on the subject of disgusting impudence, snuff

is another thing that is used without respect for It is disgusting and we as young adults should have more respect for our school, custodians and other students. For example, while one table is fellow students. being scolded for talking too loud or throwing a grape at their friends, at the next table over, students are passing a can of snuff and a straw around. Or, walking to the bathroom and seeing a five person line because a student is using the stalls as a haven for drugs. I am sure they can find more economical ways to do so, that way kids that are in line to actually USE the bathroom provided for us, not to supplement other peoples chemical addiction is one thing but displacing others for it is a completely other subject.

Here’s to the Night

Juniors spend weeks prepairing Prom by April Rogers editor

There is only one dance a year which around 225 people attend. That dance is Prom. Juniors and seniors can be admitted alone while underclassmen must have an upperclassmen date. Prom is the only dance that takes months to plan. Math teacher, Dave Grabowski and the junior advisors are in charge of organizing and pulling off this event. Any juniors that would have liked to help plan could have joined the committee, and have a chance to become Prom Queen and King. There is a lot of preparation when getting ready for Prom, including picking a theme. This years theme is Ò HereÕ s to The NightÓ , though many students thought it was Ò HereÕ s To TonightÓ because of technical difficulties on tickets

and morning announcements. The dance was a black tie formal. According to Grabowski Ò Every Prom is different than the next. This Prom will great.Ó The long two years which students must wait for Prom is considered Ò well worth itÓ according to Grabowski. Aside from having no place for all the decorations, and students finding gauze, lights and many other decorating devices in math closets, a large amount of work goes into forming Prom. Ò I am at school for Prom decorating almost every day. The week of Prom I was decorating six days a week, after school and on Saturday for hours,Ó said junior, Miranda Bloomquist. Bloomquist was one of 15 who ran for this years Prom Queen. After the Grand March Grabowski announced the Queen and King. Junior class advisors choose the royalty by which junior works hardest during the

decorating process. Prom Queen went to Bloomquist, and Prom King went to Dustin Carlson. This year there was 20 juniors on the Prom planning committee. About 16 are girls. Ò The theme is primarily a star filled night. It is very elegant and our colors are black, white and silver.Ó said Bloomquist.

Prom 2010

Students parade through Prom

by Skyler Gingrich editor

Dressed to the nine, MCHS students and guests waited in a huge line for their 15 seconds of fame on the auditorium stage. After the seemingly endless flow of students showing off their best attire, the Prom Royalty was crowned and given a round of applause. The students then proceeded to go back to the gym in order to dance the night away. With a theme of Ò HereÕ s to the Night,Ó there were no specific guidelines to apparel. Although I think it would have been fun to have a specific theme, the Homecoming mardigras theme was a look into how difficult it is to add extra elements. The dance started slightly slowly, with couples turning circles for a slow dance and then began to pick up speed with catchy pop songs that inspired more people to get up and dance. Songs like the Ò Cha Cha SlideÓ made the dance look like a scene in a movie. Break dance circles were formed on several occasions allowing students to show off their skills, while line dancing took up most of the dance floor during country songs. Although Prom is one of the better dances IÕ ve been to, the music could have been better.

Some songs were virtually impossible to dance to. There is a difference between songs for dancing and songs that you just listen to. The dance floor was crowded but many people were just standing there.Of all the things I donÕ t like seeing at a dance, couples who are constantly making out on the sidelines is definitely at the top. Dances are for dancing. By the end of the dance, many students had already left in order to change for after prom or continue their nights elsewhere leaving the dance floor with a lot more room. Arriving at after prom, students checked in and were entered in drawings for smaller as well as larger prizes. Students were allowed to play card games, Wii, bingo, ping pong, as well as bowl free of charge. Students who won bingo or a card game were awarded a small prize. Waiting for the final big prizes to be announced, students crowded the announcer hoping theyÕ d be the lucky one to win. When the final prize was awarded, students groggily filed out of the bowling alley’s doors and went elsewhere. It seemed like there were more prizes last year, but chaperones this year were a lot more organized about getting them out. It was a good event, for the most part, and everyone who helped to put it on should be commended.

Drug use among teens has been increasing over the years. It is important for teens to understand the long term and short term affects of drugs and how drugs can be harmful to their health. It is also important for drug users to understand not only the harm they are doing to themselves but to others around them too. Drug use has caused many families to be broken up because the addictive state of mind the users have causes drugs to become a part of those families.

Heroin withdrawls can be deadly

Heroin comes from the refined poppy flower which is an opiate that causes users to feel almost no pain. Regular heroin abusers gain a tolerance to the drug. This means that person needs to take larger amounts of heroin to feel the effects.Over time, physical dependance and addiction occur. This means the body has gotten used to the drug. If abuse is reduced or stopped, the body undergoes withdrawals. Withdrawl symptoms include dilated pupils, piloerection (goose bumps), runny nose, yawning, and uncontrollable itching. As withdrawal progresses, elevations in blood pressure,pulse,respiratory rate,and temperature occur. Overdose symptoms may result in coma or death. Overdose symptoms include shallow skin,shallow breathing,clammy skin,convulsions, and coma.Heroin can cause depression,which could last for weeks. Depressed heroin users often commit suicide.Attempts to stop using heroin can fail because of withdrawals. They can be overwhelming,causing you to relapse to try and overcome these symptoms. But, it will not work it just gets worse.

Marijuana benifits proved false

Marijuana use has reached a high in the past few years. For example, we now have medical marijuana dispensaries, allowing patients with medical problems to get access to a medical marijuana card. In early stages of using marijuana, people often have rapid,

loud bursts of laughter.Later stage effects are, becoming sleepy/stuporous,lack of concentration,and coordination.Marijuana affects short term memory causing forgetfullness in conversations. Physical signs include; inflamation in the whites of eyes, and an odor of burnt rope (hemp) on clothing and breath. Overestimation of time, craving for sweets, and an increase in appetite can also come from the use of marijuana.Physical effects of marijuana include faster heart beat and pulse rate, bloodshot eyes, dehydration. According to an article in Drugaddictiontreatment.CA.

Effects depend on the amount taken along with the users personality, mood, and expectations. The surroundings in which the drug is taken is also a factor.Your pupils dilate when you take LSD, and body temperature increases. Heart rate and blood pressure also increase.

Cocaine use leads to serious disease An early effect of cocaine on the brain is euphoria that can range from 5 to 15 minutes.”The high is followed by a crash that leaves the user craving more.”Explained Johnny. Cocaine and crack cocaine are very similar to each other. Using the right amounts of cocaine, baking soda and water you have a recipe for crack cocaine. The difference is crack has about 100 times more power than that of cocaine leaving you with a harder crash. Crack is also in a rock formation much like meth. Cocaine and crack have an overwhelming effect on the pleasure centers of the brain.The drugs interfere,alter and take control of specialized cells that regulate pleasure,well-being,and mood.Regular use could shut off the brain’s ability to ever be or feel normal without the drug.prolonged use could cause addiction.According to an article in The cardio nervous system is also effected. Blood pressure,heart rate,breathing,and body temperature increase. Crack and cocaine suppress the desire for food,sex,and sleep are altered. Cocaine and crack

can cause strokes,brain seizures,respiratory failure,heart attack,convulsions,and death. It also damages the liver’s ability to detoxify food. This reduces the production of crucial enzymes that are

Meth affects users, & environments

Addicted meth users often start using meth in their teens causing them to have meth problems later in their life making it harder for them to stop using the drug. Meth has been abused for many years. These days meth use has reached an all time high in our country.

Meth harms the environment. For each one pound of meth produced, five to six pounds of hazardous waste is generated. This causes immediate and long-term environmental health risks. The chemicals used to make meth are very toxic. Lab operators often dump waste into streams,rivers,fields,backyards,and sewage systems. This contaminates water for humans and animals. Vapors when cooking meth permeate halls,carpets of houses and buildings this makes them uninhabitable.Cleaning these sights requires specialized training, and costs land owners on average of 2,000 to 4,000 dollars per site.According to an article in Meth also affects the user’s children. Hundreds of children are neglected each year from parents who are cooks or users.Children who are in or near meth labs are at risk of being harmed in such toxic environments.

A closer look at meth Meth, American’s homegrown drug epidemic is mostly found in small towns rather than big cities. Meth is leaving a path of destruction. It is a powerful and destructive drug giving its users a sense of energy or high to push themselves faster and further than needed. Treatments for meth use is harder to find in small towns where it is used most. Meth users go through a hard and long crash because meth is made from harsh chemicals. These include: battery acid, drain cleaner, lantern fuel, and antifreeze.

Therefore its intake can result in stroke, heart attack, or serious brain damage. Meth sends a message to the brain telling it to release dopamine. Dopamine is a natural “feel-good” chemical used to repeat activities to stay alive, like eating. After using meth for a while, the brain releases enzymes that stop the dopamine flow. This causes users to lose appetite, and the ability to experience pleasure.

$wipe it, write it, $pend it: Credit cards easy to use, difficult to pay off

$ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ by Mackenzi Griffin reporter

Over the course of AmericaÕ s history, many things about our culture have changed. This ranges from anything like fashion trends right down to the way we spend our money. In America about 10 years ago, it was normal for the average teenager to carry around a decent wad of cash earned in an after school job. Of course, you wouldn’t expect the average teenager to carry around a credit card back then. However today, it’s more than normal. In fact, it is almost becoming a standard American practice.

Cultural changes include pockets

Both today’s economy and technology are allowing different ideals to come into play. According to, more and more things are being accepted in our society. One of those things is more freedom among teens including the opportunity to get a job and make money to pay for the things they want like clothes, new cell phones the first car and savings up for college.

Debt can start at a young age

Most parents get their kids credit or debit cards when they get their first job. This gives them more freedom and teaches them to manage their money wisely. However, some students never learn, and that is where credit card debt barges in. By the time most students graduate from college, they have a good amount of debt from student loans. Debt is a hard thing to deal with, and a hard thing to get rid of. Once in debt, getting out is difficult. Debt early on in life can ruin credit and keeps it that way.

Stress linked to debt Stress from debt just adds to stress for most college students are already dealing with. So what are the risks of students with credit cards? How do parents control spending without being controlling still allowing freedom for their children? As we all know, credit cards are notorious for debt. This may be a very good reason why some parents don’t like the idea of their naive children having credit cards. However, students who do not get credit cards early on, may not have good money management skills.

Credit Cards adds to college student debt Since most states allow students age of 18 to secure credit cards without parental consent, many just do it anyway. Consolidated Credit Counseling Inc. reports that 20 percent of college freshman got their credit cards in high school and 40 percent in their first year of college.

Once students have ruined their credit, they are more likely to drop out of school altogether, just to pay off their credit card bills. If that is not enough, their bad credit haunts them when it comes time to rent an apartment, buy a car, and sometimes even land the job that will help them to pay off all of their debt. It’s not as if these troubles can just go away. It can take years and years to pay down the debt.

Prevention, possible and simple EBSCO. com reports that there are a few ways to prevent this from happening. After you’ve been hired at your first job, have your parents open up a savings account for you and keep your money on a fee free debit card. Savings accounts are free for minors so there is no problem with paying each month. This creates less hassle for you and your parents. Then when you deposit money into your savings account, write down the amount you deposited in a notebook. Subtracting how much money you spend each time you make a purchase will help you to manage your money. Once all of your spendings have claimed their place, use the same notebook to write down what you would like to buy. Try thinking of all the birthdays of friends and families coming up, and you’ll have your priorities set for spending. You’ll also know what is is like to have responsibilities with your money. These tips will help you when you make your way to college and you’ll have all the right ideas about a checking account when

Credit cards grant independence

you get there.

While there are many risks with credit cards, there are also a great deal of benefits. You just have to be safe about it. One of the many great benefits of credit cards for teens is freedom and the choice to buy what you want. So when you see something you want, you don’t need to ask your parents for money. Simply swipe the card and it’s yours, like magic.

A student demonstrates the uses of credit cards and checks at local stores in Craig.

1. Always double check for new sales and discounts. You never know what deals you could be missing.

6. Eat at home more often. Try to avoid spending money in restaurants. learn to cook at home.

2. Set up an account on account. Not only can you sell a lot of things you don’t need to get some extra cash, you can also buy a lot things you may want or need for very cheap prices.

7. suggests bringing a lunch to school instead of buying lunch. Most high school students have the choice to leave for lunch, and rather than going to a pricey fast food joint, eat something from home.

3. What do you really need? When you begin to make a purchase ask yourself, “Do I really need this?” That way you can always keep track of what you spend and spend less. 4. Don’t be picky when it comes to fashion. While expensive brands like Hollister or American Eagle are stylish and appealing, you may find a lot of similar styles at your local Target or Walmart. This will allow you to still look good with money left in your pocket. 5. Lower your personal gas prices. Drive less and save money. When you need to get somewhere within walking distance, go ahead and save while getting a little exercise.

8. Always go for the used option on video games, books and movies. Since we all know these items can be generally pricey, its better to save money by going used. They’re no different than being bought in the store, just a little beat up at the worst. 9. Keep up on the maintenance of your car. Keeping up on oil changes and air in your tires can keep your car alive for years, and save an expensive fix later. 10. Finally, drink more water and save money. Water is basically free and soda and juices aren’t.

In the ears and out in actions: by Jayme Colvin reporter

The effects of music on behavior. Music not only gives you something to sing and dance to, but it can also change how you feel. Music is a past time , a hobby and a passion. According to Kira Bursky of when you listen to music, it affects your brain, the tempo, beats and pitch, it pairs your brain with different feelings towards the music. Most students have a specific genre of music they prefer. Although it may not be the same as


Classical music is one of the less modern genres around, but it is one of the most empowering. Studies in a hospital in London shows that thereÕ s a connection between musical preference and cognitive ability. Classical music has been found to increase activity, reduce tension and enhance specific types of intelligence. It creates an ideal environment for thinking.


Most country songs donÕ t bring on happy feelings. This could be because many country songs focus on sad things that happen daily in a persons life. Country music doesnÕ t always cause depressed thoughts, It sometimes makes people feel better knowing that other people are experiencing the same thing. There are many songs in this genre that are happy, humorous and upbeat. These song focus on the good things in life and the memories we need to cherish.

another students preference, music affects different people in different ways. Any type of music will boost your mood if you enjoy that genre of music. Studies have been done at Penn State University about the effects of music on moods. Students kept a journal and wrote their moods before and after listening to music. Next time you are listening to music, stop and think about how it is affecting your feelings. Learning how each type affects your mood can really put you more in control of your emotions.

Rap / Hip Hop

A recent study by the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation in Berkeley, Calif., shows teens that listen to rap are more likely to drink alcohol and act violent, especially against women. Some people say that rap music makes them feel more relaxed; others feel more energetic and happy because most of rap music promotes dancing and movement. This genre is just one example of music with diverse effects.


A study of more than 1,000 students aged 11-18 found that rock music is used to reduce negative emotions. Rock music allows people to escape from situations and relieve some built up stress. Psychiatrist Karen Wright said, Ò The effect of rock music depends on the person listening to it.Ó If you enjoy this type of music, positive effects will more than likely take place. However, if you donÕ t prefer listening to rock, then angry annoyed feelings could come out of it.

Gorillaz Plastic Beach album a hit Skyler Leonard


The Gorillaz, a virtual British band created by musician Damon Albarn and other musicians, came out with their third album titled Plastic Beach March of this year. Many fans of the Gorillaz’s odd and many times uncanny compositions, have been anticipating the release of this album for over five years. Now this just begs the question; does it live up to the hype? To put it quite simply, it not only lives up to the hype but creates a new level of quality never before seen in a mainstream pop record. Plastic Beach is like other Gorillaz albums in the sense that it is not all created by one man (Damon Albarn) but by one man and many other musicians collaborating together. This album has a wide variety of musicians contributing their unique styles to this album. Some of the musicians and groups that can be heard in this album are Snoop Dogg, The Lebanese National Orchestra, and the electronic based Swedish band Little Dragon. This vast array of musical styles gives great range to what you will hear in this album. Examples include the electronic 80s-esk synth pop ballad “On Melancholy Hill”, the bluesy piano melodies of “Some Kind of Nature” and finally the song “White Flag” that offers exotic orchestrations of the Lebanese Orchestra that bleed in and out of a hip-hop rap. In their last album, 2005’s Demon Days, which produced a few good singles, seemed to only accomplish that. The non-single album tracks just seemed like filler, and, or Albarn just making songs for his

own enjoyment. However, when listening to Plastic Beach, you clearly hear the amount of time spent on making each and every song. Whether it is from beautifully orchestrated string instruments, or spot on and catchy rhythmic beats and raps, Albarn and the many collaborators of this album show off what magnificence varying styles of music can create when put together. This is something the music industry has never seen done right since that of The Beatles. Listeners be warned, however; if you were looking forward to an album of radio friendly singles like of that in Demon Days, you will be hard pressed to find that in the Plastic Beach. This is an album that demands you to listen from beginning to the end to get the full experience. The intro begins with melodies brought by orchestral

instruments. These then superbly fade into a drum and bass hip-hop beat with rapped lyrics by Snoop Dogg, explaining the story of the Plastic Beach. The story is fleshed out even more through out the rest of the album, creating the full experience of the record. To Albarn it seems as though Plastic Beach is much more than just a music record. He invested as much time in artistically packaging his album as he did in creating the sound. The art also generates the world of the Plastic Beach and gives new meanings to each song. In doing this and composing music in such a way that truly shows what musical art can be, he and his musical collaborators have reached a level of quality of music that has raised the bar for any new mainstream record to come.

Armstromg joins ownership team at Honey Stinger BY BLYTHE TERRELL FOR THE DAILY PRESS

When Len Zanni teamed up with Lance Armstrong for the 12 Hours of Snowmass mountain bike race in 2008, he had no idea what the impact would be for his company. Zanni is marketing director for Steamboat Springs-based Honey Stinger, a manufacturer of honey-based nutrition foods. Armstrong tried the company’s products during the event, and he was impressed. The company announced Wednesday that the seventime Tour de France winner has become part of the Honey Stinger partnership and a member of the ownership team. Bill Gamber started Honey Stinger in 2002 with his father, William, a mainstay in the honey industry, as well as food product developer Bob Stahl and beekeeper John Miller. Gamber, Rich Hager and Zanni also run outdoor and clothing equipment companies BAP and Big Agnes. This is the biggest news ever for Honey Stinger, Gamber said.

“As far as worldwide recognition for Honey Stinger specifically, it’s unlike anything we’ve experienced,” he said. Zanni noted that Armstrong, a cancer survivor who combats the disease through his Lance Armstrong Foundation, recently made Forbes’ list of most influential athletes. But his appeal is broader than that, the three Honey Stinger owners said. “Lance is more of a household name than a famous athlete,” Hager said. Honey Stinger will have worldwide rights to Armstrong’s name, brand and image. Gamber predicted that Honey Stinger would be a different company in two years with the influence of Armstrong and his name. The athlete is expected to help with product development, and Honey Stinger plans to have products on hand at major events affiliated with Armstrong. “I was impressed with the great taste and energy they provided,” Armstrong said about Honey Stinger products in a news release. “Honey Stinger works for me in training and

racing because you want to eat them and they work. I like the whole team – they understand what athletes need and they’re great to work with. I’m excited to be part of the Stinger team and work with them on expanding the products and business.” The company owners hope Armstrong’s influence will help them gain footing in the energy food market. “We’ve always known we’ve had great products, and everybody who’s tried them likes what we do,” Gamber said, “but it’s such a big market and such a competitive market that we’ve fought for every sale every step of the way.”

The company is not disclosing the terms of the partnership. But the local Honey Stinger team said it goes beyond a product endorsement. “I wouldn’t just go buy a bike because somebody endorses it, but I see that Lance Armstrong wins the Tour de France on a Trek, so I think, ‘A Trek is a good bike,’” Gamber said. “He could have any energy chew he wants, and he chooses Honey Stinger.” Gamber, Hager and Zanni said they’re excited about gaining international exposure to their products, though they plan to take it slow in terms of distribution.

It’s a challenge to export food, Gamber said. The company’s biggest international distribution points are the United Kingdom, Norway and Canada, Hager said. They also praised their team of employees, saying the group could handle whatever comes with the newfound exposure. Zanni said Armstrong would be part of the website, social media campaigns and eventually packaging for Honey Stinger. He said the cyclist might be involved with “maybe a few signature events” but did not give specifics. See ARMSTRONG on page 28

TMH: No major errors in audit

hospital was guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which requires certain financial reporting practices throughout the year. Rowe said some of these practices were not met. Also, the Facilities Corporation failed to enter capital asset acquisitions into the hospital’s appropriate software. However, the final two issues can both be attributed to turnover in the financial department, which went through three controllers and two chief financial officers in 2009. Chief financial officer Bryan Chalmers started at TMH just

weeks before the hospital move in November. Rowe said the changes in personnel, as well as the difficulty and time consuming nature of the hospital move, could account for some of the deficiencies. “Transitioning to a new hospital, it takes a little bit to get it filled up and get operations going,� Rowe said. As for the one significant deficiency found in 2008’s audit, the report said TMH implemented the recommendations appropriately in 2009. Nicole Inglis can be reached at 875-1793 or
