Fuller Center helps families in need By ANDIE TESSLER DAILY PRESS WRITER

CRAIG — It may look like an empty lot now, but by the end of summer volunteers with the Moffat County Fuller Center for Housing will transform the overgrown patch of weeds in the 700 block of Yampa Avenue into a new handicap-accessible duplex for two fortunate Craig families. The Fuller Center became a reality in 2005 when Habitat for Humanity founders Millard and Linda Fuller parted ways with their blueprint company to start a faith-driven and Christcentered philanthropy model that still focused on providing shelter to low-income and poverty-level families. There already have been three applications submitted for consideration, and one family has been chosen. The basic criteria under consideration are applicant need, willingness to partner with the volunteers and work on the home and the ability of the applicant to pay the mortgage on their new home in installments of their choosing. “We’re hoping to get underway in the next couple, three weeks,” said Neil Folks, president of MCFCH. “Right now it’s all about raising the funds and the volunteers. There were actually quite a few people who wanted to get in on the ground floor.” The organization has been in Craig for two years, but this will be the first home constructed under its auspices. “We looked into Habitat for Humanity but they don’t work

MOFFAT COUNTY COMMISSIONERS APPROVED a new health care clinic in Craig on Tuesday, which will be located at 551 Tucker St. The house at one time was used as a dentist office and later turned into a health clinic for war veterans.

Commissioners approve clinic

Free clinic for Moffat County government employees to open in Craig DAILY PRESS WRITER


CRAIG — Moffat County’s commissioners approved a new health care clinic Tuesday, paving the way for vendor Care Here to open a free clinic in Craig for Moffat County government employees and their families. The purpose of the clinic is to give Moffat County employees a different option for basic health care needs and to save the county money, Human Resources Director Lynette Running said. “Many employees don’t want

to take time off work, pay the co-pay and go see their doctor,” Running said, noting that a free clinic with night and weekend hours might entice county employees to take better care of their health. “We have several employees that won’t even go to the doctor.” Not everyone agrees with the new clinic. Many in the community are concerned that it

will take business away from The Memorial Hospital and local doctors. Another concern is that the clinic is limited to a certain group of people, said Craig resident Neil McCandless. “The main concern is that it’s only for county employees, and it’s not helping the health needs for the community,” he said. “A lot of people who don’t have insurance won’t be able to go there. You take part of the business away from the hospital clinic — it’s certainly going to feel the effect, I think.” Running hopes that it actually will create business for

the hospital and local doctors because those who go to the clinic for preventative care and find that they have a particular ailment will then be referred to the hospital or local doctors for further care. The new health care clinic is an option the county has been evaluating for the past year to reduce costs and improve the health of its workers.

of less than 15,000,” Folks said. “The Fuller Center will come in pretty much anywhere. They’re much more willing to work with the small towns.” Towns that wish to become part of the Fuller Center organization sign an agreement stating that both entities will work as partners for building new homes and renovating old ones. “I’m not sure you have to have any sort of training to come out and help,” said volunteer Mel Duran. “I’m a carpenter, but there are a bunch of younger kids volunteering, too.” Folks just hopes that the residents and businesses of Moffat County will throw their combined energy and resources behind the project.

It also will provide free 20-minute examinations and cover the costs of lab fees, generic prescriptions and health risk assessments. ■ The annual clinic costs are estimated at $214,138, which includes initial set-up, supplies and the cost to operate the facility. Currently, the county pays roughly $117 per person for a private-sector doctor’s office visit. The average cost for an office visit to the free clinic comes to $85.79 per person for the county. ■ The free clinic does not push additional costs on to taxpayers. It’s funded out of the county’s Health and Welfare fund. “We’re spending this money whether we have a clinic or

IN JUST A FEW WEEKS, THIS VACANT LOT will be swarming with Fuller Center for Housing volunteers using their time and energy to give some new neighbors a place to call home.

“We’d love to hear from some of the big companies around here.” MCFCH works diligently to keep the cost of construction to a minimum, such as no profit and no interest mortgages, volunteer labor and donated materials. An engineer will evaluate the site

next week and clear the $53,000 project for construction. “I’m just waiting for the call from the guys that are doing it,” Duran said. “We’re going to get out there and work hard and build this thing from the foundation up.”

not,” Running said to the commissioners. “It’s preventative care for employees.” All three commissioners were supportive of the clinic. “I like the fact that we’re using the free market to save money,” Commissioner John Kinkaid said. The county recently bought a three-bedroom house at 551 Tucker St. for $99,900. The house at one time was used as a dentist office and later turned into a health clinic for war veterans. Every bedroom is equipped with a sink, making it good fit for a health care clinic, Running said. The property was purchased for county offices or for county services, Running said, adding that it will now house the free health care facility. “After Obamacare kicks in, when everyone has (health insurance), you’re going to find it hard to get into (privatesector) clinics,” Commissioner Tom Mathers said. “I just know that this is the new way that people are going to get health care. To me, the initial thing is an education process. Everyone needs to get all the facts.” The county also highlighted that it expects to see a return on investment after the first 18 months. “We’re estimating somewhere between $250,000 to $300,000 in savings over a three-year period,” Running said, noting that those saving would occur after the clinic expenses have been deducted. “I think it’s a great idea,” Commissioner Chuck Grobe said.

STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN A GAME at Rising Star Youth Training Center on Tuesday during gymnastics practice.

Rising Star Youth Training Center opens to gymnasts By NATE WAGGENSPACK DAILY PRESS WRITER

Like us on Facebook for more news qualifying gymnast from Casper, Wyo., who, when she heard about a new gymnastics school opening in Craig, wanted to be involved. “I’m excited to see these girls have potential and grow into it,” Balfour said. “They all love gymnastics, and I’m excited to have gymnastics back in my life. It will be cool to watch the girls grow.” Other coaches Grant, Britany Nielson and Morgan Carrico make it possible for the staff to handle lots of participants. “I just like that we have coaches here who can get (gymnasts) to that level,” Grant said. “You need to have that guidance because it’s so hands on.” Rising Star will offer 11 classes beginning this week, for newcomers and more experienced gymnasts. It also will have classes for children from 8 months old (with parents) to high school ages. While the focus for business is gymnastics, it is also important to Winder for it to be a destination for any interested child. “It’s all about the kids,” she said. “I want them to have a place to go that is theirs. There are so many gyms, bars or businesses that people associate with around town. Kids don’t have that other than school. I want anyone to know they can come here, and it will be a fun and safe place for them.”

PATRICIA JONES AND HER DAUGHTER RACHAEL JONES clean out a Craig apartment used to provide temporary emergency housing for those in need in Craig and throughout the Yampa Valley. Jones is the executive director for Love INC.

Jones said. The price of the program for Love INC is $500 a month, pretty steep even with the extended network of resources, Jones said. A Yampa Valley Community Foundation grant of $1,500 received at the beginning of the year has been entirely spent. For advocates of the program, however, the reward is well worth the price. The entire goal of Love INC is to help people in times of need regain their independence and stability. The Emergency Housing Program has a more than 80 percent success rate. Unlike other charitable organizations, Love INC is not based on a top-down or agency model. Instead, individuals referred to Love INC by churches or agencies have their needs assessed at what is known as the clearinghouse. The clearinghouse acts as a liaison between agencies and multiple churches, as well as a central hub for assistance planning. The combined resources from all sources constitute the assistance package. “People call us here (at the clearinghouse) and we send them where they need to go,” Jones said. “Really, this is by the

churches and for the churches. If we didn’t have them, there’d be no Love INC.” Every church has the opportunity to choose a cause to promote and develop its own ministry. The Seventh-day Adventist Church of Craig provides kitchen and bedroom necessities, Craig Christian Church provides personal items and Calvary Baptist Church of Craig is home to the largest food pantry in the area. “We lease out the office space for Love INC,” said Diane King, administrative assistant for St. Michaels Catholic Church. “We also provide a free lunch on Tuesdays and free dinners on Thursdays.” Other churches focus on addressing needs on a case-bycase basis. “Pat (Jones) will let me know if she has someone with specific needs,” Pastor Tim Douglas, of Ridgeview Church of God of Craig, said. “I’ll help her figure out what to do for that person or find out where the best place for them to go is. We make sure they get what they need.” If you or someone you know is in need of assistance, Love INC can be reached at 970-826-4400.

CRAIG — The gymnastics scene in Craig has stepped up its game, rolling out a new facility along with new coaches earlier this week. Rising Star Youth Training Center had its grand opening Monday at 538 Pershing St., next to the post office. To kick off the celebration, the facility hosted a youth gymnastics camp Monday and Tuesday. Cammy Winder, the gym’s coowner and manager, decided to start the new business after being the instructor at Gym Star, which was a gymnastics and cheer business that used to be located in Centennial Mall in Craig. “We bought their equipment — not their name — and started our own business,” Winder said, referring to herself and her husband, Shane Winder. When tracking down a new location, the Winders thought the 9,700-square-foot location next to the post office would be out of their price range. But the spot, which has been vacant for months and home to bars and nightclubs most recently, turned out to be a fit they could afford. “I think so many people didn’t want a bar there, and a gymnastics facility is not that,” Cammy Winder said. “It seemed out of range for a brand-new, tiny business, but we did a lot of praying.” Almost all the gymnastics equipment has been moved into the new gym, Cammy Winder said. It has equipment for all four gymnastics events — balance beam, bars, vault and floor routine. The bigger excitement, though, is the new coaches who will help her at Rising Star. “Here, I’ve got real coaches with years of experience in gymnastics,” she said. Kaitlyn Balfour “is a level-nine gymnast, (Leah Grant) is level six and she’s been coaching for two years. I’m really excited about this group.” Balfour was a four-time state

CRAIG — For the past 10 years, Love INC has been providing a safety net for Craig and Yampa Valley residents who have fallen on hard times. The collaboration of local churches arose from the need to better organize and distribute assistance throughout the community. In total, there are 157 Love INC networks throughout the United States. The various charities realized that some individuals were abusing the system by going from church to church and receiving assistance from each. The churches decided amongst themselves that there had to be a better way, and thus a Love INC chapter in Yampa Valley was born. “One of our big things is that people can call and ask for anything,” said Executive Director of Love INC Patricia Jones. “Then we’ll contact the various churches and see what resources we have for them.” The ministry receives requests for a vast array of needs, including basics like food, personal items and clothing. It is not unheard of for people to have their pets spayed or neutered through the organization. One vital resource that Love INC provides and that, according to Jones, few community members are aware of is the Emergency Housing Program. In addition to shelter, it includes all food and personal needs for the duration of a family or individual’s stay. “Our focus is to start a relationship with each person that comes to us, so they know they can trust us to do the best we can to take care of them,” Jones said. “We really want to help people move through their rough times and get back on their feet, help them find employment and see them become successful and independent.” There is one factor that limits what the housing program could achieve: Love INC currently has only one apartment in Craig that provides shelter to those in need. “You never know from week to week how many people will need housing and it’s really hard to decide who gets the apartment,” Are you in the Dark?

County loses my vote The Moffat County commissioners are so out of this world if they think they are going to save money by opening their own medical clinic and that it won’t cost taxpayers a dime. Well, where is the funding coming from? What about helping with funding at the schools, trying to figure out a way to put more into the hospital that we just had to have or sticking money into some programs for local youths? These are all better options than a private clinic, and I’m sure the public would be more likely to support these options rather than the one the commissioners came up with. They will not get a vote from me again, and I hope it is all short terms for the two new ones. I will be there waving them goodbye. Cory Overton Craig

School is out; now, it’s time to read fun books By Lance Scranton For the Craig Daily Press


Good job on event Good job to all who helped with Grand Olde West Days. In my opinion, you brought Grand Olde West Days back in Craig, America. We enjoyed all the activities during the weekend. Very well organized. Good job, Melanie. We loved having the bands and beer garden back downtown in the park. It was fun to enjoy the music, food, fun and visiting with people around the community. It’s a lot of work to put on an event like Grand Olde West Days. To everyone who helped, good job and thank you! Carol J. Sloan Craig

Letter of resignation To the residents (and taxpayers) of the Craig Rural Fire Protection District, Craig Fire Board, Craig firefighters and staff: It is with great regret that I submit this letter of resignation as a board member of the Craig Rural Fire Protection District Board of Directors. In October 2005, when I accepted the position as a member of the Board of Directors, I had no idea how it would affect me personally and professionally. Personally, I became a part of the most respected group of people in the world, notwithstanding law enforcement and the military. I gained the utmost respect for each and every one of the firefighters and their families that support them. Professionally, I made a promise to the firefighters and the public. A promise to the public that I would assure that their tax dollars were being spent wisely and that they

would have the best-trained and equipped firefighters available. While I am confident that there are some people out there who will not agree that every dollar we spent was “smart,” I can look anybody in the eye and say that I felt it was money well spent. I committed to do my part to assure that our firefighters had everything they needed to do their jobs safely and efficiently. It was important to me that they had all of the necessary tools and training available, and the payoff for these (oftentimes expensive ventures) first and foremost was that they came home safely every time. It was worth every penny. To the firefighters: The dedication, hard work and pride you have for what you do shows on your faces and in everything you do and everywhere you go. The public looks up to you; never lose sight of why you are there, why you do what you do, and never let the few naysayers make you question your dedication, motives or abilities. To Chris Nichols, John Forgay, and Tony Maneotis: It has been a pleasure working with the three of you, keep up the good work. Keep forging ahead, and try to keep things on track. To the public: Support these brave dedicated people; they are our sons, daughters, husbands, wives, sisters, brothers, friends and neighbors. Never forget that when your house, or any building, is on fire and everybody is running out, your firefighters are running in, and they are not doing it for the money. Support your Fire Board. If you don’t like what they are doing, attend meetings and let them know.

If that fails, run for a position and have them voted out. But be careful of what you ask for; you might get it. The Fire Board has accomplished a lot throughout the years, and I am not so naive as to think that my leaving will make a huge impact on future progress. I hope it doesn’t. I do think the board will continue to strive for excellence and work to keep the firefighters and the public safe. W. Alan Webber Craig

Rummel is mistaken I read with fascination the stories about Mr. Rummel and what he and some of his peers are proposing. It seems to me that he is asking just the opposite of what gun control advocates are asking for. I would not expect a whole community to conform to my beliefs or values. I am not an advocate of gun control, but I do think that two wrongs seldom make a right. As far as economics, why aren’t we asking why the land out by Walmart is going undeveloped? Why aren’t we offering some kind of incentives to try to attract a business here? Hunting is very important to our economy in Craig. If someone chooses to not come and hunt here as a protest, it seems that I might have a better chance of getting the hunting license I am trying to draw. I still amazed at what people think is important, like “the killer deer of Craig” and forcing someone to own a gun. This is America, and we all have a right to an opinion. Mike Flannery Craig

Summer provides ample opportunity to squeeze in some time for reading. Each summer, I try to catch up on my preferential reading and do less purposeful reading. I spend most school terms reading through as many professional books as I can — most having to do with leadership, teaching and coaching. Lance Scranton But summer opens up the possibility to consume some books that aren’t necessarily geared toward professional growth or personal information. Two recommendations made by our high school library aide and reader extraordinaire, Robin Weible, are “Tis” by Frank McCourt and “The Great Santini” by Pat Conroy, which I currently am consuming. Reading always has been a staple around our house, and most of the boys don’t complain too much when we suggest that they read for an hour or so, but we don’t push too hard and try to lead by example. My mother read voraciously and, while I read more than the average child, I certainly wasn’t considered a bookworm. But the example always was there, and as I continued to grow up, it seemed like second nature to read. Anything would do: comic books, engine manuals, magazines and even the odd book. It was difficult to commit to a novel because it just seemed too long and there were too many other important things to do, especially during the summer. What reading has done to increase the quality of my life, how my views are informed, why I believe what I do and where I see myself in our culture cannot be overstated. Reading has provided insight for understanding issues and has given me a sense of empathy for others that I simply wouldn’t have otherwise. Reading, quite simply, does to the intellect what good food does for the soul or what good music does for the spirit. At least that’s what I think.

Hundreds memorialize Asher By TOM ROSS


Michael SiSk, M.D.

Craig Daily Press

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Michael Kirlan, grieving the loss of his son, shared with hundreds of mourners at Howelsen Hill on Monday how 9-year-old Asher Lillig LesyshenKirlan had hatched a plan to get a little more skiing into his life. Asher, who died Wednesday, was already competing in Nordic combined skiing and Alpine skiing with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club last winter when he proposed to his father that he add one more sport. Allowing close friend Jamie Adams to speak for him during Monday’s public memorial in downtown Steamboat Springs, Kirlan shared his written thoughts about his son. “Asher was so much a child of Steamboat,” Kirlan wrote. “I often thought of how lucky he was to grow up here. He was the love of my life and he loved life. He wrapped his little arms around it and he swallowed it whole. He wanted to do everything and came close to accomplishing that.” One day, Asher came to his father and said, “Dad, can I ski freestyle, too?” His father pointed out that he already was training five days a week, and the Winter Sports Club doesn’t hold practices on the seventh day. How could he possibly add another discipline of skiing? Asher thought of a way. “Wouldn’t it be cool if there were 10 days in a week and I could ski eight?” he asked his father. Asher was made for Howelsen Hill, and Howelsen Hill was made for him. So it was fitting that hundreds of people — families mostly, with dozens upon dozens of young children — filed into the outdoor amphitheater to memorialize him. A stiff breeze ruffled international flags set out as if a World Cup Nordic combined competition was about to take place, and a pair of skis was propped up against a medalist’s podium.

MIKE KIRLAN HUGS OLIVER CARDILLO during Monday afternoon’s memorial service for Kirlan’s son, Asher Lesyshen-Kirlan, at the base of the Howelsen Hill jump complex. Oliver’s father, John Cardillo, middle, and his brother, Henry, also were onstage for the tribute.

The children came decked out in Asher’s favorite color — purple. They wore purple tie-dyed shirts, and they came wearing soccer cleats and purple shorts. They carried lavender and purple balloons, and a little girl circulated through the crowd offering packets of tissues to grown-ups. There were too many children for this to be a funeral; it was a true celebration of life. Family friend John Cardillo, the father of one of Asher’s best friends, reminded the gathering that they were not there to dwell on the tragedy, but to celebrate Asher’s enthusiasm for life. “Today we focus on the positive level of energy released when Asher’s little soul was released into

the universe,” Cardillo said. Speaking through Adams again, Kirlan wrote that Asher loved the wilderness, where he tasted columbines, learned how to read the currents where trout lay, and was taught to leave native artifacts in the desert canyons where he found them. “Memories of our time in the wilderness are the best, deepest and most loving memories I’ll ever have,” he said. Finally, Kirlan asked the hundreds of mourners to keep their own memories of his son alive. “I want you to tell me about those memories next week and next year” and for as long as they live on, he said.

Lesyshen continues to recover in Denver hospital By MATT STENSLAND STEAMBOAT TODAY

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — A day after hundreds of Steamboat Springs residents gathered to say goodbye to 9-year-old Asher Lillig Lesyshen-Kirlan, his mother remained in a Denver hospital’s intensive care unit. Routt County Undersheriff Ray Birch confirmed Tuesday that Lisa Marie Lesyshen’s selfinflicted gunshot wound was to her neck. Though she was able to speak to investigators last week, Birch said he wasn’t sure whether she would suffer any permanent disabilities. It also remained unclear when Lesyshen would be well enough to be booked into Routt County Jail on charges of first-degree murder, child abuse causing death and domestic vio-

lence. There are two deputies taking turns guarding Lesyshen at Denver Health Medical Center. “She has to be advised (by a judge) of the charges against her,” Routt County Deputy District Attorney Rusty Prindle said Tuesday. “That right now is placed on hold because of her medical condition.” Lesyshen is accused of shooting Asher five times in the early hours of May 29 before turning the gun on herself. According to court documents, Lesyshen told her husband Michael Kirlan that she shot their only child because she wanted to hurt Kirlan. The couple lived together but were in the process of separating. Kirlan awoke to the sound of gunshots that night but was not injured himself. According to court documents, Lesyshen admitted to investiga-

tors that she shot her son and then asked to speak with an attorney. Lesyshen is being represented by the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office in Routt County. The Routt County District Attorney’s Office filed formal charges against Lesyshen on Friday. The investigation is ongoing, but the legal process is well underway. Attorneys representing Lesys hen have asked a judge to sign what is effectively a gag order. In an effort to limit pre-trial publicity, the gag order would limit what attorneys can say publicly about the case. Attorneys also have asked a judge to make it clear that Lesyshen can only be questioned by investigators if her attorneys are present. “Defendant wishes to exercise both her right to silence and right to counsel,” the attorneys wrote.

Judge accepts insanity plea in shooting case By DAN ELLIOTT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CENTENNIAL — A judge accepted James Holmes’ long-awaited plea of not guilty by reason of insanity Tuesday and ordered him to undergo a mental evaluation — an examination that could be a decisive factor in whether the Colorado theater shooting suspect is convicted and sentenced to die. The judge granted prosecutors access to a hotly contested notebook that Holmes sent to a psychiatrist shortly before the July 20 rampage, which left 12 people dead and 70 injured in a bloody, bullet-riddled movie theater in suburban Denver. Taken together, the three developments marked a major step forward in the 10-month-old case, which at times has inched along through thickets of legal arguments or veered off on tangents. Holmes faces more than 160 counts of murder and attempted murder, and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. He will now be examined by the Colorado Mental Health Institute in Pueblo, but it’s not certain when the evaluation will begin or how long it will take. Hospital officials have said that before they meet with Holmes, they want to review evidence in the case, which prosecutors said totals nearly 40,000 pages. Judge Carlos Samour Jr. set a

tentative date of Aug. 2 for the exam to be complete but said he would push that back if hospital officials request more time. Samour indicated he still hopes to begin Holmes’ trial in February. Holmes, 25, shuffled into court with his wrists and ankles shackled, wearing a long, bushy beard and dark, curly hair that was slicked back. Samour read Holmes a fivepage list of consequences of the insanity plea and asked if he had any questions. “No,” Holmes answered in a clear, firm voice. It was only the second time since his arrest that he has spoken in court, other than occasional whispered exchanges with his attorneys. The findings of the mental evaluation will become evidence in Homes’ trial, but they are not the final word on whether he was legally insane at the time of the shootings. The jurors will determine that. If their verdict is not guilty by reason of insanity, Holmes would be committed to the Mental Health Institute indefinitely. He theoretically could be released one day if doctors determine his sanity has been restored, but that is considered unlikely. If their verdict is guilty, jurors would then decide whether Holmes will be executed or spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Fire near Evergreen caused by fallen tree on power lines THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

EVERGREEN — A fire that prompted evacuations in the foothills near Evergreen was sparked when a 48-foot tree fell onto power lines and burned, officials said Tuesday. Firefighters took advantage of cooler temperatures and higher humidity Tuesday to fully contain the wildfire estimated at 10 acres about 30 miles west of Denver. Incident Commander Bill Easterling told residents the fire wasn’t controlled, but crews had finished building containment lines. Sheriff ’s officials were allowing remaining evacuees back home at 8 p.m., and power had been restored to about 360 homes. The fire began Monday, prompting evacuations after wind carried sparks a half-mile. Some evacuees were allowed back home Monday night. No structures have been lost. Temperatures in the 60s helped firefighters digging a 200-foot-wide containment

line around the fire. But officials were watching incoming weather that could bring winds and lightning late Tuesday into today. Even with full containment, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office advised residents that they might see dense smoke for days because of heavy fuels that fed the fire. The fire has cost an estimated $80,000 to fight. The National Weather Service issued a warning Tuesday of high fire danger for southwestern Colorado, where about 70 firefighters battled a separate 75-acre fire near Creede that was 50 percent contained. Its cause also was under investigation. Firefighters also were sent to the Weminuche Wilderness Area in southwest Colorado to put out a small fire that broke out Monday. A Hotshot team, two air tankers and two helicopters were moved to the Durango Air Tanker Base to help fight any fires.

Craig runners represent at race By NATE WAGGENSPACK DAILY PRESS WRITER

CRAIG — It was only right for runners from Steamboat Springs to take home the men and women’s marathon crowns at the Steamboat Marathon. But runners from Craig also turned out and successfully represented the town from the across the Yampa Valley on Sunday. A strong contingent from Craig showed up to test their training on the difficult, hilly courses of the marathon, half marathon and 10-kilometer race. According to the results online, 25 people from Craig crossed the finish line in one of the three races. The top finisher from Craig in the full marathon was Trinidad Loya III, 31, who took 68th place with a finishing time of 3 hours, 56 minutes and one second. While the time was not near his goal time of 3:30, Loya wasn’t too disappointed about finishing his first full marathon after running the Steamboat half in 2011 and 2012. “I thought I would try something different this year,” he said. “The first half, I ran really good. I was at about 1:40, but then I started to cramp up and it fell apart. It was good to finish it though, and I knew no matter how bad I was hurting, I was going to finish.” Loya was one of three people from Craig to finish the full marathon, accompanied by Kevin Kernen, 38, and Jnl Linsacum, 54. In the half marathon, the top finisher from Craig was Drew Morris. Having run several half marathons in the past, Morris was especially pleased to see his hard training pay off in the form of a 1:45:40 finish. “I ran much faster than I did in previous years,” Morris said. “It felt really good, actually. I started (training) earlier, ran longer more often and just pushed myself more every time I went out.” Morris ran a 1:44 in the Georgetown to Idaho Springs Half Marathon previously but knew the Steamboat course is considerably tougher. Sunday was his best race to date, he said. Both runners were excited to see Craig well represented in more than 1,500 total participants. Loya also finished high in the BolderBoulder 10k May 27, which was another recent race where a large Craig contingent showed up. He thinks running is starting to catch on in Craig. “It’s definitely cool seeing peo-

I think I’ve noticed it getting bigger.” Morris knows running does not have a major following in Craig, but he likes to see the city represented at events outside of town. “There’s usually a really good turnout from Craig,” he said. “I feel like I see more and more people every year. People do really well. They come out and compete and represent Craig.”

Spoelstra, Popovich making the right moves toward Finals By TIM REYNOLDS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI — Other than widely being known by just the first syllable of their surnames, the coaches who will match wits in these NBA Finals may seem like polar opposites. Of course, they would probably disagree with that assertion. Miami’s Erik Spoelstra wears sharp suits and is a stats guy; San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich often skips the tie and immeasurably would prefer to answer

questions about wine than anything about himself. Both are intensely private, but even during an NBA Finals loaded with star power — the “Big Three” from Miami, the “Big Three” from San Antonio, a four-time MVP in LeBron James, a fourtime champion in Tim Duncan — the coaches will share misery in one way. To their chagrin, Spo and Pop will be in the spotlight. “It’s easier to talk about how they are similar versus how they are dissimilar,” said ESPN ana-

So far, only Jackson, Red Auerbach, John Kundla and Pat Riley — Spoelstra’s mentor and boss in Miami — have five rings as a head coach. “Maybe I don’t show it the way I should, but it’s pretty special,” Popovich said, in a rare moment of near-sheepishness, after his

team beat Memphis and won the West title for a fifth time. “I’m just really proud of the group, the way they worked all year long to get there, and I’m sure that we’ve been a team that’s probably been written off like they’ve had their day.” Spoelstra took over for Riley five seasons ago, has won nearly twice as many games as he’s lost and has endured a constant circus of distractions ever since the Heat acquired James and Chris Bosh to play alongside Dwyane Wade in 2010.

Federer loses quick quarterfinal in French Open By HOWARD FENDRICH THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PARIS — A point from losing the first set of his French Open quarterfinal, Roger Federer shanked a routine forehand, sending the ball 10 feet beyond the opposite baseline. The Court Philippe Chatrier crowd roared with approval, then chanted the last name of Federer’s opponent, Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. That shot was a clear indication that Federer was hardly Federesque on this day. There

were plenty of others: He argued with the chair umpire about a call. He dumped overhead smashes into the net. And in a truly rare ungraceful moment, he failed to put a racket to — or get out of the way of — a backhand flip by a sliding Tsonga, instead getting hit on the back. All in all, Federer looked lost out there Tuesday against the sixth-seeded Tsonga, who pounded his way to a 7-5, 6-3, 6-3 victory against the 17-time Grand Slam champion in a 1-hour, 51-minute mismatch

remarkable for its lopsidedness and brevity. “I struggled a little bit everywhere. To be honest, personally, I’m pretty sad about the match and the way I played. But that’s how it goes. I tried to figure things out, but it was difficult. And Jo does a good job keeping the pressure on,” Federer said. “He was just better in all areas,” continued Federer, whose lone French Open title, in 2009, allowed him to equal Pete Sampras’ then-record of 14 major championships. “He returned better than I did. Served

better than I did. I struggled to find my rhythm.” While Federer quickly faced a big deficit Tuesday and never recovered, Serena Williams was able to get out of a much smaller spot of trouble. Like Federer, Williams is 31. Like Federer, she’s won more than a dozen Grand Slam titles — 15. And like Federer, only one of those trophies came at Roland Garros, in 2002. Trailing in the third set against 2009 French Open winner Svetlana Kuznetsova, the No. 1-seeded Williams won five games in a row

Tulowitzki’s homer rallies Rockies over Reds By JOE KAY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CINCINNATI — Home run? Double? Who knew? Not Troy Tulowitzki. The Rockies shortstop was running all-out when a fan grabbed his fly ball by the top of the wall in left field. The umpires initially ruled the fan had reached over the wall and awarded Tulowitzki a double. One minute later, they changed their minds. Tulowitzki wound up with a two-run homer in the eighth inning, and the Rockies held on for a 5-4 victory Tuesday night that ended their streak of six consecutive losses to the Cincinnati Reds. “I didn’t really see him touch it,” Tulowitzki said. “I was just

running and wanted to make sure I made it to second base.” The umpires needed only a minute to watch the video and see that the fan with a glove had caught the ball above the top of the wall. They overturned the initial faninterference call and awarded Tulowitzki his 13th homer. “A big-time home run by a bigtime player,” Colorado manager Walt Weiss said. “It doesn’t get any more clutch than that.” Sam LeCure (1-1) retired the first two Rockies in the eighth before walking Carlos Gonzalez and going to a full count on Tulowitzki, who got the fastball he was expecting. Reds manager Dusty Baker went with LeCure instead of Jonathan Broxton in the eighth because he already was warming

up and has pitched well lately. LeCure hadn’t allowed a run since May 5. “As a reliever, the later you’re in the game, the better,” LeCure said. “Today just wasn’t my day. I’ve been throwing the ball well, and people kept reminding me of that, and I kept saying, ‘Someday, it’s going to end.’ It didn’t have to be today.” Nobody was happier about the homer than reliever Edgmer Escalona, whose mental lapse gave the Reds a go-ahead run in the seventh. Escalona tried the third-to-first pickoff fake that was outlawed this season, resulting in a balk that gave the Reds a 4-3 lead. “I figured at some point this year, somebody was going to do that with the new rule,” Weiss said.

en route to a 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 victory that put her back in the semifinals at Paris after a decade’s absence. Williams had lost four consecutive quarterfinals at Roland Garros — in 2004, 2007, 2009 (to Kuznetsova), 2010 — and so when she was serving while down, 2-0, in the final set Tuesday, “I thought, you know, ‘Can’t go out like this again.”’ That was a pivotal game, featuring 16 points and three break chances for Kuznetsova, who flubbed the last with a drop shot that floated wide.

Stock market heads lower on Fed stimulus worries By MATTHEW CRAFT THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — The Federal Reserve guessing game threw the markets for another loop Tuesday. Comments from a Fed official raised expectations that the central bank could start easing its support for the economy soon, sending the stock market sharply lower in the late afternoon. The market recovered in the last hour of trading to end with slight losses. Snippets from a prepared speech S&P 500 1,631.38

They have seized on comments from bank officials and minutes from a recent meeting of policymakers, sending stock and bond prices swinging sharply during the past two weeks.

The Federal Reserve releases its latest Beige Book survey today. The report is a snapshot of business conditions in each of the Fed’s 12 districts. It comes ahead of a meeting later this month of the central bank’s policy committee. In April the Fed reported modest to moderate growth in all of its districts, driven by a recovery in housing, stronger auto sales and other factors.



stocks rose as traders interpreted an unexpected slowdown in U.S. manufacturing as the latest sign that the Fed wasn’t close to winding down its stimulus program. The next big data point for investors is the Labor Department’s monthly employment survey due out Friday. “My sense is that all bets are off until we see the jobs number Friday,” said Jack Ablin, the chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank in Chicago. “That’s the ultimate barometer.”

THE BORN LOSER By Art and Chip Samson


16 | Wednesday, June 5, 2013


Horoscope GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You might find it necessary to make a small but significant sacrifice for a loved one. Don’t make a big deal out of it. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — You should concentrate on your latest interest, because that’s where you’re likely to make your greatest strides. It won’t hurt to put your other hobbies on the back burner. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you’re properly motivated, you can make some outstanding achievements. If you just coast along, however, you’ll actually lose ground. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Try to find time to spend with friends who share your philosophical beliefs. You can help one another to think bigger and better. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Your ability to uncover things that others are trying to keep hidden is unusually keen. Now is the time to investigate a work matter that hasn’t seemed right to you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — One-on-one relationships will require grace and tact. To appease a certain individual, you might have to make a few concessions that you normally would balk at.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Don’t think your selfesteem won’t suffer if you fritter your time away. Many of your friends might get away with being unproductive, but you won’t. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — A group project will fare better if you take a leadership role. The current commander might not be as talented as you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You are presently in an excellent cycle, so don’t waste this day. Visualize the results you want and work for them with all your might. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — If you find yourself a bit restless, either mentally or physically, check out new project that has aroused your curiosity. It might be just what you’re looking for. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Don’t be surprised if you are unusually focused on your material interests. Even when you’re just having some fun, it’s likely to have something to do with money. TAURUS (April 20- May 20) — You’ll have no trouble asserting yourself in any kind of situation that calls for it, but you won’t go so far as to push others around to get your way.

Boss falls victim to Nigerian scam Dear Annie: I have worked for many years at a small, family-owned company. I think my boss has been the victim of a scam, but I can’t tell her. ANNIE’S For several MAILBOX years, my boss has been communicating with a gentleman who claims to be Nigerian. He keeps telling her he is supposed to come to America in the near future and will bring Kathy and Marcy her a check for $40 million. I don’t see it happening. There are three people sending this man money. By now, they have probably given him more than $100,000. When I am at work, my boss asks whether the man has sent any emails, and if not, she wants me to write to him. Every few weeks, he says the trip has to be postponed, and then he needs more money for a new ticket. How do I tell her I don’t want to be involved with this

any longer?

— Seeing a Scam Dear Seeing: The “Nigerian scam” has been around for a very long time, and we are surprised people still fall for it. This man will never come to this country with $40 million, but he’s certainly doing a good job of collecting money from naive people like your boss. Not only should you stop contacting this man, but also you should protect your boss by informing her that this is a scam and she should report it to the local FBI office or register a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. Of course, if she chooses to ignore you and contacts him on her own, there is nothing you can do. Some people have to learn the hard way. Dear Annie: My husband and I live on a quiet deadend street. Quiet, that is, until the neighbors rev up their Harleys. They have two motorcycles that have been altered to be much louder than the factory intended. These neighbors often come home well after midnight and sometimes leave early Sunday mornings, making it impossi-

ble to sleep with our bedroom window open. When they travel back and forth during the day, the thunderous noise is quite disturbing. I realize that some Harley owners think that the loud pipes and leather are a form of prestige, but I wonder whether they ever consider their neighbors. Please, Harley owners, pipe down! — Hate Those Harleys Dear Hate: Have you asked your neighbors directly whether they would please muffle the noise until they are out on the open road? Does your neighborhood have a noise ordinance prohibiting such volume at certain hours? Is there a neighborhood association to resolve conflicts? Don’t give up without first checking to see whether you have any recourse in the matter. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please email your questions to annies, or write to: Annie’s Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 737 Third Street, Hermosa Beach, CA 90254.
