Some would-be Cupids may have had their gifts planned out for the past month, but others may need a little extra help deciding between the many options available for loved ones. The staff of The Flower Mine, 410 W. Victory Way, has seen booming business within the last two weeks with the onset of Valentine’s Day.

First Course Wild Shrimp Shooter: Grilled Shrimp, Sweet Spicy Cocktail Sauce, sprouts and Green onions

ANNIE NELSON takes the buffalo by the horns with one of her favorite exhibits at Wyman Museum, One-Eyed Jack. Nelson, a curator and jack-of-all-trades, said she enjoys working at the museum because of her appreciation for antiques and other unusual items.

Where is your hometown? “Craig, born and raised.”

Second Course: Caprese Napoleon of Steak Tomatoes, Basil & Buffalo Mozzarella OR Crab Bisque Soup CHOICE OF ONE

What has kept you here? “Family, friends, history. Some of my original family members homesteaded, so that’s partly why I’m here.”

Third Course: Tornados of Top Sirloin, Mushroom Duxelle Pinot wine reduction, Fry leeks

Motto or outlook on life? “I’d say something like that famous quote, ‘Today is a gift. That’s why they call it the present.’”


What all does your job involve? “I feed Clyde the elk, I help with all the special events here, I help load pallets, I help decorate, I work the forklift, I’ve done all kinds of stuff. I guess I’m kind of a jack of all trades.”

Salmon Oscar, Béarnaise Sauce, Grilled Asparagus Seared Chicken Breast with Cheesy Artichoke & Spinach, Wine butter sauce

Favorite part of the job? “For one, my boss is fabulous, I went to high school with her. I love the stories here and the history, and I have a deep fascination with antiques. And, I just like being able to interact with people in the community.”

Four Course: Crème Brulee Stuffed Crème Cinnamon Churros & Chocolate Ganache

Favorite meal from a local restaurant? “Gino’s Al Capone calzone. It’s got a lot of sausage


and cheese and pepperoni, it’s just great.” A book, movie, TV show, or musician you’re embarrassed to admit you like? “I’d say Barry Manilow. (Laughs) On the other extreme, I really like Korn. I love all realms of music.” Pet peeve? “Gossip and all the negativity that comes with it. I also don’t like being at the movies and seeing people chewing popcorn with their mouths open. It’s just gross.” Favorite part of life in Northwest Colorado? “Nature’s always been an escape for me. You can feel a part of it no matter what’s going on in the world, and it’s always here for you. We’ve got every biome readily available here and it’s incredibly beautiful.” Ideal Valentine’s Day experience? “Just to be reinforced by knowing that you’re loved and appreciated. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, just a sincere hug and kiss. That’s just so important and heartfelt to me.”

e have Valentine’s Day this week. Roses, candy and cards remind us of the reason for the day and help us let someone special know we love them. Like Christmas, I believe we shouldn’t just come out and express our Mary Jo Brown feelings on certain days — we should express our feelings every day. No, we don’t need to go buy something every day to express how we feel. A hug, smile, more consideration toward each other and small acts of kindness do the job just fine. Now, especially when times are harder, we need to not expect to receive material gifts MUSEUM OF NORTHWEST COLORADO/COURTESY PHOTO

Above is a vintage photo of two men on horseback in Hayden. The riders are Ira Smith, left, and Tex McDowell. The photo is part of the collection at the Museum of Northwest Colorado, 590 Yampa Ave.

as much as we used to. Love is expressed in many ways, true, but unconditional love is best. Have a very good Valentine’s Day. Happy birthday to Mary Ann Harrington, Laura Swanson, Shirley Nelson, Randolph McFarland and Doris Riemann.

Carroll: Cheap gas equals jobs

Opposing war in Iran would be wise


fter being elected in large part because he’d opposed a “dumb” war in Iraq, President Obama finds himself confronting an even dumber one in Iran. Exponentially dumber, actually. Dumb because, like the targeted assassinations Gene Lyons of Iranian nuclear scientists rarely cited by columnist commandoes, bombing raids alone can’t achieve the alleged goal: preventing the ayatollahs from acquiring nuclear weapons. Slow them down, probably. Stop them, no. Short of a fullscale invasion and occupation of a nation three times larger than neighboring Iraq in population and five times larger in land area, that can’t be done. Global disapproval didn’t stop North Korea, Pakistan, nor, for that matter, Israel. Exponentially dumb because it could set the entire Middle East aflame. You’d think the Israelis, of all people, would recognize that threatening a people with death and destruction hardens their resolve. Yet the New York Times reports that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “told visitors that he believes the Tehran government to be deeply unpopular, indeed despised, and that a careful attack on its nuclear facilities might even be welcomed by Iranian citizens.” Yes, and Dick Cheney predicted that U.S. forces invading Iraq would be greeted with candy and flowers. “Most analysts [in Jerusalem] and abroad,” the Times noted cau-

tiously, “take a different view.” Indeed, historical examples of civilian populations cheering on aerial bombardments are rare, if not nonexistent. Despite his and Cheney’s obvious affinities, one would expect Netanyahu to be made of saner stuff. That’s assuming that the Israeli prime minister’s motives for threatening a unilateral Israeli strike against Iranian nuclear facilities are as reported. I suspect they are not. To put it bluntly, it’s not so much the regime in Tehran that Netanyahu’s keen to destabilize as the one in Washington. The question now is how far he’s willing to take it. Despite media chatter about “red lines” being crossed, it’s hard to point to anything the Iranians have done to provoke the current crisis. They’ve been trash-talking since 1979. Otherwise, no Iranian armies are massing. With its navy badly outgunned in the Persian Gulf, and a vestigial air force scarcely capable of defending against Israeli bombers, Iran sits surrounded by U.S. bases in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan -- well, everywhere. Iran’s last military action of any consequence was its catastrophic 1980s war with Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, during which it suffered more than a million dead. The Persians haven’t actually invaded anybody for more than 300 years. The Shiite regime’s expanded regional influence came about as an unintended consequence of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. For what it’s worth, the ayatollahs deny any intention of attacking the “Zionist Entity” -- despite frequently wishing

that it would vanish from the earth. Even Iranian clients Hezbollah and Hamas have been mostly quiet. With Iran’s economy faltering under sanctions engineered by the Obama administration, and much of its population seething with resentment amid an acrimonious feud between President Ahmadinejad and Supreme Leader Khamenei, the Tehran regime’s got all it can do to survive, much less start a suicidal conflict with Israel -- not to mention the United States. But when articles invoking the Holocaust and urging “creative destruction” in Iran appear on the same day (Feb. 7) in the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek and Bloomberg News, a skeptical observer might be forgiven for suspecting a wellcoordinated propaganda campaign. Writing in Beirut-based Al-Akhbar, American journalist Max Blumenthal dates its inception to a Jan. 3 article in Israel Hayom revealing that Israel’s National Security Council -- basically Netanyahu’s closest political allies -- had concluded that “U.S. President Barack Obama is ‘naive’” and fails to understand Israel’s precarious position. Deemed a Likud Party organ, the newspaper is owned by multibillionaire Las Vegas casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson, who bankrolls Netanyahu and serves as Newt Gingrich’s sugar daddy too. Netanyahu appears to see an Obama second term as an impediment to further Israeli expansion into the West Bank -- or “Judea” and “Samaria,” as Likudniks style it -- and has cast his lot with the Republican right.

It’s been a while since Washington politicians and bureaucrats were extolling the alleged benefits of rising energy prices and championing policy that would drive them up quicker, all in the name of green jobs and climate virtue. Perhaps slow growth and stubborn unemployment, like the gallows, tend to concentrate the mind. President Barack Obama would never admit today, as he did four years ago, that electricity rates would “necessarily skyrocket” under his cap-and-trade plan. In fact, he’d probably prefer to hear nary a word about cap-and-trade during the next nine months. And Energy Secretary Steven Chu will surely not be heard repeating today what he said back in his heady days as an academic, namely that “somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.” But just because they’ve turned silent about boosting energy prices doesn’t mean they’ve abandoned the project or rethought their conviction that higher prices will drive economic well-being — a castor oil theory of growth. However, as a lengthy report in Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal confirms — and from which I lifted this column’s opening quotation — Obama and Chu have it exactly backwards: It’s lower energy prices that drive economic renaissance. By now most Coloradans are acquainted with how hydraulic fracturing technology has triggered an explosion of drilling activity, even along the Front Range, that would have been unimaginable a few years ago. Nationally, the Journal cites an estimate of 158,000 direct new drilling jobs over the past five years and probably four times that many indirect jobs “in the supply chain” and as a result of workers spending their new earnings. More remarkable, however — at least to those who cling to castor oil energy theories — is how this fracking revolution has given Made In America a second chance. Low gas prices, the Journal reports, are “breathing new life into energy intensive industries such as steel and plastics,” as well as boosted the prospects of petrochemical makers and paper mills. And the Journal’s list doesn’t come close to exhausting the list of beneficiaries, which range from aluminum smelters to farmers who use nitrogen fertilizers (for which natural gas is a feedstock). Cheap energy isn’t just a boon today, either. It’s always been so.

ART: Balleck: ‘We’re thankful to the kids for allowing us to showcase their art’ FROM PAGE 1

an artist and/or chocolatier Saturday night. The Cherish the Little Things art show at The Center of Craig was also a popular destination for visitors. Sponsored by Connections 4 Kids early childhood council, the youth art show featured 210 pieces by 175 artists in preschool through high school. Michelle Balleck, Connections 4 Kids coordinator, said this year was the first time the organization arranged an art show for local children. “We worked closely with art teachers through the Moffat County School District and we are really thankful for their help,” Balleck said. “They were instrumental in getting this set up.” As part of the show, coordinators came up with an interesting way to raise funds for Connections 4 Kids programs, while also featuring some of the best works on display. Twenty finalists were chosen to have their work matted and framed. The public was then allowed to vote on favorites by depositing money into each piece’s respective donation jar. The top 13 artists would not only help drive funds for valuable Connections 4 Kids programs, but also be featured in

BUSINESS: Local businesses offer Valentine’s specials The store’s biggest bouquets and gift bundles each include a garden’s worth of the prettypetaled items. One of the several packages available is the Pink Explosion, a mixture of pink and white flowers: carnations, daisies, roses and more for $65. The Valentine’s Splendor runs $95 and comes with lilies, snapdragons and long-stemmed roses in a red glass vase. The biggest of the bunch is the $140 Whole Lotta Love, featuring a teddy bear, a half-pound box of toffee and long-stemmed roses in a wicker basket. If “less is more” is your philosophy, save some cash and get a single romantic rose wrapped with ribbon and cellophane for $8. The Flower Mine’s personnel have worked tirelessly to ensure each of the expressions of love look as delightful as they should. “The best way to make sure they stay nice is just to trim them diagonally on the bottom and keep them in cold, fresh water, not warm,” Pfister said. With as many people who have stopped in recently, Pfister said she expects to see a greater number in the next few days.

“Monday and Tuesday will be crazy,” she said. “We’ll also have them delivered by cute men in tuxes, so that’ll be fun.” The shop’s bouquets are based on the remaining inventory, so don’t hesitate to get what you want. To place an order with The Flower Mine, call 824-7441.

Salon offers Valentine’s deals in conjunction with larger sales If you want to keep up your beauty regimen and still keep some lucre in your wallet, the perfect storm of cosmetics bargains is brewing all month within one local hair care business. In honor of Valentine’s Day, Stylz 5th Avenue, 535 Yampa Ave., has a special for new and old customers with gift certificates automatically marked down by $5 each. For instance, if you pay $20, you’ll have $25 worth of credit at the salon. Owner Sherrie Knez said the value will be valid for purchase until the end of the month. “It’s mostly for Valentine’s, but we wanted to keep it going for through February,” she said. Consumers can really cash in by using their gift certificates on the products Stylz already

has discounted. In addition to a clearance sale with certain items 75-percent off, while supplies last, Knez also highlights a product line each month for a 15-percent markdown. “This month is Nioxin, and it’s all their stuff, like gels and shampoos,” she said. “The product of the month for March will be Matrix.” Husbands and boyfriends, remember — a well-groomed man is a gift for any woman. Stylz’s Men’s Day on Fridays gives male haircuts for $13, and the shop carries men’s products, too. Beyond the world of hair, the salon also offers a variety of spa services. “We’ve got a fabulous mani/ pedi, and if you pick three or more services, you can get a special price,” Knez said. “It’s just a great thing for a woman to spend a day making herself feel good. It’s a great gift for husbands to wrap up with a box of chocolates.” Business hours for Stylz 5th Avenue are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, with special late appointments available upon request.

“In the third quarter, we got after them defensively and outscored them 10-2,” Hamilton said. “We didn’t score a lot of points, but we were just super intense, aggressive and physical on defense. “Our guys responded after a tough Friday game and really gutted it out (Saturday).” Junior Tyler Hildebrandt scored 10 points to lead the Bulldogs and freshman Joe Camilletti scored eight. Hamilton said Palisade (16-5 overall, 8-2 WSL) came at the Bulldogs with one of the best presses his team has seen all season. “Palisade’s guards are quick, so it is extremely tough to get through their press,” he said. “But, I thought we did an excellent job of moving the ball and being successful against it.

Hamilton said his team may not have the wins, but each player has improved this season.

“I think we have improved each week and we keep getting better and better every game,” he said. “I think this last week will be huge for us and we could win both games. We want to finish out the season with some good performances.” Joshua Gordon can be reached at 875-1795 or joshgordon@

Terry Carwile, City of Craig mayor, will deliver the State of the City speech. Carwile said his address would focus on positive signs in the local economy, citing an uptick in the city’s sales tax revenue, the opening of Colorado Northwestern Community College’s Craig campus, and a recent surge in new commercial development. “The residential market is not picking up in the same fashion as commercial development, which is not as good,” Carwile said. “There needs to be a balance there, but at least we don’t have a lot of vacancies in the housing market.” It’s unclear which of the three Moffat County Commissioners will present the State of the County address, but commissioner Audrey Danner said the speech will likely include updates on energy activity, continued efforts to streamline government operations, major capital improvement projects scheduled for this year, and bills at the state level important to county residents.

STEAMBOAT PILOT & TODAY STAFF A 5-year-old girl who was rushed to a Denver hospital Saturday afternoon after suffering serious injuries in a two-car crash on Routt County Road 55 was recovering and in good condition Sunday, according to the Colorado State Patrol. State Patrol Sgt. Scott Elliott said Children’s Hospital in Denver reported the girl was in good condition and could be released as early as Sunday. The girl was injured in a crash that occurred at about 1 p.m. Saturday. Elliott said she was riding in a 2001 Subaru Outback driven by her father, Hayden resident Tanner Copeland, when the Outback struck a 2000 Ford F350 pickup driven by Craig resident Kenneth Nachtman. According to the State Patrol, Copeland was south on C.R. 55 when he slid into the northbound lanes while entering a curve to the right. Copeland’s Subaru struck

the left side of the truck. The State Patrol says the county road was slushy and muddy at the time of the accident. Copeland sustained minor injuries, as did his 3-year-old son who was in a child safety seat. His daughter was in a child booster seat and sustained serious injuries, and she was eventually transported to Children’s Hospital in Denver, according to a State Patrol news release. None of the pickup’s occupants were injured. The crash still is under investigation. State Patrol troopers do not think drugs or alcohol played any role in the accident. Copeland was issued a summons for careless driving causing bodily injury. Troopers stressed the importance of driving slowly on snowy, icy and slushy roads, as well as wearing seatbelts and ensuring that child safety seats are properly secured.

Dear Annie: Our 22-year-old son is in college. He lives at home, and we pay all his expenses, which is fine with us. He was never particularly interested in school until his ANNIE’S last year of high MAILBOX school. Now he’s doing really well. The problem is, he wants to go to medical school and needs to pass the MCAT exam. He is studying very hard and barely speaks to us. This is frightKathy and Marcy ening for us. He is our only child, and we are trying very hard to be nice to him, but he dismisses us completely. When he eats dinner with us, he barely answers our questions and gets up as soon as possible. Even when he’s watching TV in his room, he locks his door. It’s hard to deal with this. How we can make him understand that success isn’t everything? — Worried Mom Dear Mom: Right now, doing well in school and passing his MCATs are the most important things in your son’s life, and he is working hard to achieve his goals. Instead of demanding his attention, try to support his ambition. Keep in mind that you get to see your child more often than many parents whose col-

We know it’s difficult that he is so uncommunicative, and you can ask him to be civil enough to respond politely when spoken to. But beyond that, please accept his presence as it is. If it’s at all possible for him to live in a dorm room or get a part-time job to support an apartment, we highly recommend it. Dear Annie: My local grocery has carryout service. I tell them I don’t need help, but they always assist anyway. Granted, I look like I need help because I always have my 9-month-old baby and 3-year-old toddler with me. I realize they are only being kind, but it makes me feel I have to tip them a dollar or two. Do I? How much? How can I make it clear that I don’t want their assistance? (I always take the cart back to the store. The extra walk is great exercise.) — J. Dear J.: Groceries that offer to have someone take your bags to the car generally do so as a courtesy to the shoppers, and a tip is not required. If you aren’t sure what the policy is for your store, ask the manager. And while you’re at it, inquire how to do without this service. Perhaps you simply need to be more forceful when saying, “Absolutely not, thank you very much.”

Ravens K Cundiff grateful for teammates' support By Luke Meredith ASSOCIATED PRESS

For Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff, the support of his teammates and the lessons learned from his Midwestern upbringing have helped keep the biggest miss of his career in perspective. The 31-year-old Cundiff returned to his home state

of Iowa on Sunday to accept an alumni award from Drake University in Des Moines, three weeks after he shanked a 32-yard field goal attempt with 11 seconds left in the AFC championship game that sent the New England Patriots to the Super Bowl. Cundiff said his Ravens teammates had been even more supportive than he imagined.

“It’s been impressive. I expected a lot more backlash,” Cundiff said. “I had a lot of guys that kept telling me, ‘Look, I’ve made mistakes.’ Obviously, everyone sees my mistakes. That’s just the way it goes.” Cundiff called the miss a “tough pill to swallow.” But it certainly wasn’t the first setback for an Iowa kid who blossomed from a wannabe quarterback at

a non-scholarship FCS school to an All-Pro kicker. Cundiff was a three-time allstate pick as a quarterback at Harlan High, a small-school football powerhouse in western Iowa, and kicked out of necessity. Cundiff had hoped to play quarterback at Drake, but he quickly discovered his future in football was as a kicker.

Cundiff was also a point guard for the basketball team who played sparingly, though he quit before his senior season to concentrate on football. He said the relative anonymity of kicking for the Bulldogs — who rarely draw more than a few thousand fans a game — allowed him to get all his mistakes out of his system away from the spotlight.

GIRLS: MCHS players hit 12 of 14 fourth-quarter free throws FROM PAGE 24

WSL) hit a couple of early shots to take a small lead, forcing Palisade to foul. MCHS players hit 12 of 14 fourth-quarter free throws to seal the game. Senior Melissa Camilletti led the team with 16 points and fellow senior Annie Sadvar added 11. Junior Lisa Camilletti contributed nine points. Yoast said Palisade allowed the Bulldogs to get good looks

Results ... Box score from the Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team’s game Saturday at Palisade High School: (Team — 1st — 2nd — 3rd — 4th — final) • Moffat County — 12 — 9 — 9 — 18 — 48 • Palisade — 5 — 16 — 9 — 6 — 36 MCHS leading scorers: (Name — points) • Melissa Camilletti — 16 • Annie Sadvar — 11 • Lisa Camilletti — 9

at the basket, but the shots weren’t falling and free throws ultimately made the difference. “We had our choice of shots from lay-ups out to 10 feet, but they would hit the rim and bounce out,” he said. “The refs let the players play, so it was good for us because we will have to bang it out under the rim in the playoffs, and we got to work for that (Saturday).” Defensively, Yoast said he could see fatigue in the players, who didn’t switch on screens or communicate well.

But when it counted in the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs pulled together. “I think I needed to rotate the girls better in the first half because of the fatigue,” Yoast said. “But, we ran a full-court press most of the game and we got some big turnovers off that. We didn’t let (Palisade) control the tempo and they just threw up some off-balance shots that went in.” The Bulldogs host Glenwood Springs at 6 p.m. Tuesday, and with a win, would move into a

tie for first place in the league. Joshua Gordon can be reached at 875-1795 or joshgordon@

5yr old tricolored paint mare that stands at about 15.2 hands. VERY FLASHY. Needs someone who will use her and get her in a routine. Great trail/ranch horse. No buck, no bite, no rear. SOUND. She has packed and done overnight camping. In fact, she’s a packing machine! She has also worked cattle and has been taken to gymkhanas.She’s good with flags and is solid with noises. Has been ridden Western mostly, but goes nicely under English. A confident kid/teen that knows how to ride would like her. Great 4-H prospect. We have put a nice solid foundation on her and she’s young enough that someone can build them a nice horse. We rescued her out of a neglect situation when she was young. We suspect there may have been some abuse as she can be a little head shy at times. She would make a great brood mare and she loves people. Price will go up as she becomes more seasoned. She will go to a good home only, she’s our pet. May consider trade.Asking $2,500.Let us know. Emma 970-846-4681

A small step forward MCHS boys basketball team shows improvement in road loss BY JOSHUA GORDON DAILY PRESS WRITER

Eric Hamilton knew his first season as head coach of the Moffat County High School boys varsity basketball team would be a challenging learning experience. Hamilton is the Bulldogs third head coach in the same number of seasons and he inherited a team with young talent. So, despite falling 68-48 on Saturday in Palisade, Hamilton praised his players for their best game of the season. “Palisade is dang tough and played physical and aggressive, but I thought it was our best game of the year,” Hamilton said. “We matched their intensity and played hard. Again, the score didn’t show how close we were and we just played very physical.” The Bulldogs (5-15 overall, 2-8 Western Slope League) trailed 34-20 at halftime, but held one of the league’s highest scoring offenses to two points in the third quarter to pull within six. However, like Friday in Delta, the Bulldogs’ opponent didn’t falter on free throws to close out the game. JOSHUA GORDON/DAILY PRESS

MELISSA CAMILLETTI, a Moffat County High School senior, led the MCHS girls varsity basketball team to a 48-36 victory Saturday in Palisade with a 16-point effort. The Bulldogs struggled to get shots to fall, but made 12 of 14 free throws in the fourth quarter to wrap up the win.

TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS Free throws key in MCHS girls basketball team’s 48-36 victory in Palisade BY JOSHUA GORDON DAILY PRESS WRITER

The Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team was riding high after a big win Friday over Delta. On Saturday at Palisade, however, the Bulldogs played like a team struggling with their energy level. MCHS took an early 12-5 lead after the first quarter, but

Palisade tied the game at the break and again after the third quarter before the Bulldogs used clutch free throws down the stretch to pull out a 48-36 win. “It is tough coming off a huge win,” coach Norm Yoast said. “We came out and executed everything, but we were just a step off. We would bobble passes and have good shots but just miss.

“Overall, the girls did well, but I think our legs were tired and our timing was off.” Palisade (7-14 overall, 3-7 Western Slope League) tied the game at 21 heading into halftime and 30-30 after the third quarter. Yoast, who filled in for head coach Matt Ray for a second straight game, said he huddled the players before the fourth quarter to make sure

they stuck to the game plan. “In the huddle, you could feel the confidence the girls had,” he said. “They knew the (fourth) quarter was their quarter and they had to take care of business. The seniors stepped up to be the leaders and led by example.” In the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs (15-6 overall, 8-2 See GIRLS on page 15
