Crash course on funding

Parks and recreation taxing district to be discussed at work session next week Scott Franz



Steamboat Springs’ Parks and Recreation Commission next week will get a crash course on how other communities in Colorado have created taxing districts to fund their recreational amenities. The city has invited Steve Russell, executive director of the Western Eagle County Metropolitan Recreation District, to talk to the commission Wednesday night at a public work session about his district and how it works.

Formed in 1980 to build a community swimming pool, Russell’s district now oversees more than $20 million of facilities and is funded annually by a property tax. Russell’s trip to Steamboat comes as city officials and parks and recreation commissioners in Steamboat have been having some informal conversations about the prospect of creating some form of a parks and recreation district here. Parks, Open Space and Recreational Services Director John Overstreet said the topic came up most recently at a focus group meeting about the future of Howelsen Hill.

“They were asking the question of how they are structured,” Overstreet said. “It really depends on if it’s a city-only district. It could be a regional district. It could be a county-wide district. There are a lot of nuances involved.” Some community members also raised the issue at a separate public meeting on Howelsen, saying they would be willing to pay a tax to support the park. Next week’s work session on the taxing district was requested last week by parks and recreation commissioner Doug Tumminello.

We asked a contractor what it might cost to turn it into a private study or maybe a caretaker’s cabin, and he said, ‘Oh, maybe $25,000.’” It was Schneider and his wife, Jean, who rode in on a white horse in summer 2010 to save the Dog House when the current owner of Burroughs’ former home, which overlooks Old Town from the west end of Maple Street, ran out of room for it. The property owner was about to break ground on a new addition to Burrough’s cozy old house. Unable to find a way to move the writ-

Jack Trautman steps down Chairman of Steamboat’s Parks and Recreation Commission resigns Scott Franz

steamboat springs

Jack Trautman, the leader of Steamboat Springs’ Parks and Recreation Commission and a longtime advocate for bikers, disc golfers, dog walkers and all other people who love to play outdoors, resigned Tuesday after more than five years on the commission. He said the many differences between the fast-paced corporate world that he worked in for 35 years at a major technology company and the slower public process on the commission here led him to step down. “I gave it five years, and I feel good about the contributions we made and the progress we made,” Trautman said Wednesday. “We’re on the right path, but it’s time for me to do something else.” He said he had a lot of confidence in the remaining commissioners, and he’s hopeful the group will continue to play a bigger role. In recent years, Trautman has been a strong advocate for giving the volunteer commission a bigger voice than it had in years past. The commission’s recent involvement in capital project prioritization was an example of progress in that arena. But Trautman said he came to the realization he can have a bigger impact on the community in the future from the other side of the dais.

“I did a lot of soul searching before making this decision,” he said. “It’s been something I’ve been thinking about for a while.” At his last meeting as the head of this city’s volunteer parks and recreation commission, Trautman certainly showed a lot of passion. He spent several minutes talking about how frustrated he was that park plans the commission helped to create for Rita Valentine Park haven’t become a reality. He talked about wanting to fulfill the needs of Steamboat’s many recreation user groups from bike riders to disc golfers. He even took some heat from a city council member because of some criticism he shared about how he felt previous councils had ignored the hard work of the volunteer group. But more than anything, he said, he wanted to make an impact. At the end of last week’s meeting about the future of Rita Valentine Park, Trautman was applauded by his fellow commissioners and remaining audience members for his leadership and his efforts to give the volunteer commission a bigger voice. Trautman said he start-

ed thinking more seriously about stepping down during the recent discussions about the future of Rita Valentine. He said he initially was excited for the commission to start working on a new plan for the park on its own and with public input. He then thought about bouncing around emails with fellow commissioners about ideas for the park’s future. But he said the need to post public meetings and go through a long public process tempered that excitement. Before retirement, Trautman was the president of a global business unit for Agilent Technologies. When he arrived in Steamboat full-time seven years ago, he asked himself how he could make a difference. He got his chance on the parks and recreation commission. “I thank the City Council and the parks and recreation commission for giving me this opportunity,” he said. “It’s a privilege to serve the community that I love and give it my best at making a difference. I leave with very positive feelings about the City Council, the commission and the parks and recreation department. If there’s anything I can do to help them, I’m available.” Parks, Open Space and Recreational Services Director John Overstreet said Trautman will be missed. “It was great to work with Jack,” Overstreet said. “He is passionate about parks, open space and recreation in the city, and he just wanted to do what was right for the city and what was best for enhancing” those things.

District could increase funding burden Tax continued from 1 The Steamboat City Council on Tuesday night discussed the upcoming work session, with some questioning about whether the parks and recreation commission was the appropriate group to start that dialogue. “Is the parks and recreation commission tasked with figuring out a taxation district, or isn’t that our job?” council member Scott Myller asked. “That might be our job, not theirs.” Council member Sonja Macys also said she was uncomfortable with the commission taking up the topic.

“With this being an issue of possible change in taxation, it’s an issue that should come up through City Council,” she said. Other council members were more comfortable with the conversation starting with the parks and recreation commission and labeled the meeting as educational. Scott Ford said he was looking forward to learning more about a system he’s not too familiar with. City Manager Deb Hinsvark told the council a parks and recreation district would be a separate form of government, and it was “absolutely in the parks and recreation commis-

sion’s purview to take a look at it and see if it’s a government they want to pursue.” The funding of Steamboat’s vast portfolio of recreational amenities long has been a hot topic. Many of the city’s amenities require annual subsidies from the general fund to operate, and parks and recreation competes for dollars with essential city services. However, a special district could increase the funding burden on area taxpayers. Next week’s work session on the topic marks the first time in recent years the topic has formally been added to any agenda.

Next owner will own a piece of history Hall of Fame. So, the $7,500 asking price seems reasonable for an original log building steeped in literary greatness. It’s also the amount the Schneiders spent to have the structure dismantled into two pieces, lifted onto a flatbed truck with a crane and moved to their property where it sits, ready to be reassembled. The Dog House could be converted to a streamside fishing cabin or turned into a large potting shed, a historic storm shelter on the back nine of a golf course or a writing retreat for a novelist. And the next owner will have the satisfaction of knowing they own a piece of history. Interested parties can reach Schneider at 979-421-3068 or 970-879-2686.

ing cabin of Steamboat’s bestknown author to another portion of the property, he sought to have it moved off the lot entirely. Rather than see it demolished, the Schneiders stepped in and paid the contractor to hoist it onto a flatbed truck and haul it to rural property they own west of Steamboat. “It hit us right in the heart, and we wanted” to protect it, Bob said. “Now, it’s been four years, and it’s time to do something.” The Schneiders never had any intention of keeping Burroughs’ writing cabin — Jean Schneider already has an artist’s studio. The presumption was that a Steamboat institution would find value in relocating the building to its property and placing it on a proper foundation. But nothing has ` materialized, and now the Schneiders are seeking a private buyer. Let’s not forget, Burroughs’ Dog House is on the Routt County Register of Historic Places. Burroughs was a civilian war hero during World War II who helped defend Wake

Island in the Pacific theater while working as an engineer for a construction company. He was captured by the Japanese in 1941 and endured four years of hard labor as a prisoner of war until his release in 1945. He received a series of medals for his patriotism. That was when he returned to Steamboat, where he’d lived since he was a toddler, and began his writing career. He wrote, “Steamboat in the Rockies,” “Where the Old West Stayed Young” (I cherish my copy) and “I Never Look Back,” the story of Steamboat’s original international skiing star, Buddy Werner. One of my favorite Burroughs’ books is “Head First in the Pickle Barrel,” an account of growing up in Steamboat in the early part of the 20th century. Burroughs’ books were good enough to have twice earned him the Western Heritage Award from the Cowboy

Exceptional Service With over 200 years combined experience with all makes & models.

While teams are doing a final push to reach their fundraising goals, Relay for Life of Steamboat Springs organizers say there is still an opportunity for anyone in the community to participate. “We want to encourage everyone to show up the night of the event,” said Mary Simmins, the chairwoman for this year’s local American Cancer Society fundraiser. The Relay For Life in Steamboat Springs kicks off at 7 p.m. Friday at the Steamboat Springs High School track with the opening ceremony. Soon after, those currently battling cancer as well as those who have fought it in the past will do a lap together around the track in what is known as the survivor lap. The luminaria ceremony will

start at about 9:30 p.m. People can purchase bags for $10 each that are filled with sand and a candle that will light the way for the Relay participants throughout the night. Simmins remembers the emotional luminaria ceremony from the first event she attended in 2007. “That was a very poignant moment in our family’s life,” Simmins said. “It was a very moving experience, and I’ve stayed involved ever since.” Through closing ceremonies at 8 a.m. Saturday, participants will camp out and take turns doing laps around the track. As of Wednesday, there were 95 participants signed up and raising funds on the event’s



website. So far they have raised more than $25,000. Pet Kare Clinic has 14 people on their team who have raised nearly $4,000, surpassing their goal of $2,500. The crew from Pet Kare has participated in the event before, but team member Lorna Hamilton said they were trying to get more involved this year. “We’ve made it a goal here at Pet Kare to be more community-oriented,” Hamilton said. Most people participating in the Relay have been touched by cancer in some way; Hamilton’s husband, Jim Caulkins, was diagnosed two years ago. The team at Pet Kare also is participating in the Relay for their four-legged patients that are not immune from the disease, and a lot of the cancer research starts with studies using cats and dogs, Hamilton said. “We thought participating in the Relay was very relevant to what we do here,” she said.

Hayden officials to address signs steamboat today

steamboat springs

merce President Louis Nijsten said the signage is important for businesses because many travelers pass through on U.S. Highway 40. Already, many lost dollars are driving through town, he said. “If you want to get that traffic to stop, you won’t get it without signage,” Nijsten said. Nijsten also owns and operates We B Smokin’ BBQ with his brother Stef Nijsten. Their signage, which includes the sail-like banners, made a big difference for their business, Louis Nijsten said. “It’s always been difficult to survive as a business here,” Nijsten said. “Whatever the town can do to help local businesses, I think they should.” To reach Matt Stensland, call 970-871-4247, email or follow him on Twitter @SBTStensland

Because of citizen complaints, Hayden Town Council members tonight will take a look at the rules the town has for signage at businesses. Town staff members will give their reports beginning at 7 p.m., and the regular town council meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. According to a staff report, the Hayden Police Department has received several complaints about businesses using excessive signage. In recent years, signage enforcement has been a “back-burner issue” because the town has wanted to support businesses during hard economic times. Town staff members are asking council members whether they

should strictly enforce the existing rules or if the rules should be changed. “There are some code violations so we need to discuss it,” Major Jim Haskins said. Photographs showing the violations have been provided to council members. They show violations such as sandwich boards and sail-like banners, both of which are not allowed, according to the town’s 28-page sign ordinance. Haskins said he personally does not have a problem with the signs being used by businesses, but if there are complaints, the town cannot ignore them. He said whatever decisions the town council makes need to be applied uniformly to all businesses. Hayden Chamber of Com-

Lattes and college degrees Joe Nocera

New York Times News Service

On Monday, Howard Schultz, chief executive of Starbucks, unveiled his company’s newest — and possibly most important — perquisite for its employees: a free college education. He announced this new program on a stage in The Times Center in Manhattan, alongside his partner in the new venture, Michael Crow, of Arizona State University. Starbucks long has been a trailblazer in offering comNocera pany benefits; part-time employees get stock options and health insurance. Schultz also has been one of the few chief executives willing to speak out — and do something — about the need to get people back to work again. A few years ago, I wrote a column about a Starbucks program that turned donations from customers into small business loans. What I hadn’t realized is the extent to which Arizona State is a trailblazer as well. Under Crow’s leadership, it is attempting nothing less than the reinvention of the university. If Crow’s model succeeds, it offers some real hope that higher education can become, as it once was, a place that views its mission as edu-

cating everybody, not just the world’s elites. “In the bottom quartile of family incomes, only 9 percent of kids attain a college education,” Crow said about five minutes after I met him Monday afternoon. “And, in the top quartile, 80 percent get a college education, regardless of academic ability.” That statistic is what he is trying to change. Although Crow grew up in a workingclass family, he spent a good chunk of his career at one of the nation’s most elite schools: Columbia University. He was the executive vice provost there before becoming president of Arizona State 12 years ago. He told me what appealed to him about Arizona State was precisely that it offered the chance to create a completely different model. “Traveling around the country, I could see that the U.S. was having a hard time modernizing, in a sense,” he said. “There was industrial decline, and underperforming K-12. There was a need for industrial redesign.” He found himself influenced by a handful of books, including “A University for the 21st Century” by James Duderstadt, a former president of the University of Michigan. In the book, Duderstadt argued that if universities were to remain relevant, they need to be reinvented.

Or, as Crow puts it, “How would you build a public university of greater public service that would be more adaptable to the rapidly changing society? Could you do it at scale? In a way that allowed everybody to have a chance?” His first — and, in some ways, most radical — decision was that Arizona State was going to embrace what he calls “inclusion” instead of “exclusion.” The elite universities, egged on by the U.S. News and World Report rankings, proudly talk about what a small percentage of students they accept. Indeed, it is how the culture has come to define quality in a university. Crow went in the opposite direction: Anybody with a B average in the high school courses Arizona State deemed necessary to prepare for a college education could get in. He also was insistent that the school remain affordable. For in-state students pursuing an undergraduate degree, the “list price” at Arizona State is about $5,000 per semester, although once grants and financial aid is factored in, the average cost is $3,800 per student. As the student body began to change — today, 50 percent of the school’s 73,000 students are coming from the lower half of the income strata — the See Nocera, page 9

Civil rights veterans plan to honor the 50th anniversary of Mississippi’s Freedom Summer project by taking on an even bigger challenge: Turning the South’s red states blue. Actually, they don’t express it in terms that are quite that partisan. Whether the states turn Democratic blue or stay Republican red is less important than how much black voters and other voters of color Page are able to participate in the decision. Fifty years ago this month, a coalition of major civil rights organizations launched Freedom Summer, also known as the Mississippi Summer Project, to register African-American voters in Mississippi. The event is sadly stained by a great tragedy. Three civil rights’ workers, James Earl Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael “Mickey” Schwerner, were abducted and killed on the night of June 21, 1964, by members of Ku Klux Klan and the local police departments. National outrage over their deaths helped to ease passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Much has changed for the better in the South and elsewhere, thanks to such efforts. Dozens of blacks and other nonwhites from both parties have been elected to offices for which they earlier would not have been allowed to vote. Yet there has been some slippage in those numbers in recent years, say movement veterans who will be gathering at the “Freedom 50” conference with younger activists this month in Jackson, Mississippi. A new report released in conjunction with the conference by the Center for American Progress, a liberal-leaning Washington-based think tank, tallies how voter registration rates for minorities in the South still lag behind that of whites, even though there are more than enough unregistered nonwhites to shift the balance in many statewide elections. “Registering just 30 percent of unregistered black voters would yield enough new voters to upset the balance of power in North Carolina and Virginia in presidential or midterm election year,” the report’s author, former NAACP President Ben Jealous, who is now a senior fellow at the center, said in a telephone interview. The report, titled “True South: Unleashing Democracy in the Black Belt 50 Years After Freedom Summer,” concludes that in many of the 13 “Black Belt” states in the study, registering just 30 per-

cent of eligible unregistered minorities could shift the political calculus, because of racially polarized voting patterns. An impossible dream? I might be willing to dismiss Jealous and his allies more easily were it not for the recent electoral upsets that have turned conventional racial, political and media wisdom on its head. For example, when conservative Republican primary voters in Virginia surprised the experts by unseating House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, it exposed how news organizations can be no less isolated by the bubble of their own reporting than politicians can be blinded by the admiration of their own supporters. Similarly, Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign narrative could be titled “Honey, We Forgot the Minorities.” He won 59 percent of the white vote, exit polls show. But due to demographic shifts and a black turnout rate that was larger than whites for the first time, a large white conservative turnout no longer was enough to stop President Barack Obama’s re-election. Whether the winner comes from the left or the right, I am not displeased to see voters defy the expectations of pollsters, politicians and media pundits. Election surprises reassure us that we are not See Page, page 9

Higher education could use such thinking Nocera continued from 8 learning had to change as well. And so it did. Arizona State developed digital tools that aided individualized learning. Of the school’s 16,000 courses, 10,000 are “tech-mediated” in some way, Crow said. Inevitably, this led to Arizona State instituting a catalog of online courses — and online degrees — which is what Starbucks is offering its employees. The great advantage of an online course is that the student can lis-

ten to the lectures or do the work on his or her own time. It is a way of reaching students who might otherwise not be able to go to school. Crow insists that online courses at Arizona State have the same rigor as classroom courses. “They are taught by the same faculty that teaches in our classrooms,” said Christopher Callahan, dean of the university’s journalism school. Crow told me that just as Schultz had been looking for a

university to partner with, he had been looking for a corporation. He thinks that Arizona State has the capability to ultimately teach 100,000 students online, and that the Starbucks partnership could add as many as 15,000 new students. When I asked him where the 100,000 number came from, he said, “That is an assessment of what share of the country’s need that we can handle.” Grandiose? Perhaps. But higher education could certainly use a little more such thinking.

Never underestimate ability to surprise you Page continued from 8 Cuba, China or some other system in which election outcomes are predetermined by political insiders. It also reinforces the message that, despite the influence of big lobbyists and big money, every-

one’s vote matters. That was the motivating message behind the original Freedom Summer, and the need to protect the voting rights that were won by that movement has not ended. If eternal vigilance is the price of liberty, as the old saying goes, so is the eternal need to protect voting

rights — and to vote. Whether a renewed Freedom Summer effort registers as many new voters as the original one did remains to be seen. But as some politicians have learned to their dismay, you should never underestimate the ability of voters to surprise you.

Through the eyes of artists Butcherknife to join In this enchanting valley, something gets ahold of each Steamboat Springs visitor who lays eyes on the impeccable beauty of the mountains and surrounding valleys. For those who live here, they know call this spell of sorts “The Yampa Valley Curse.” It’s a “curse” that is cast on those who move here and find it impossible to move away. Or if they do move away, their absence doesn’t last long. At the Depot Art Center, a group of local clay artisans created pieces that highlight the best aspects of summer in the Yampa Valley. A plethora of ceramic pieces are inspired by wildflowers, gardening, animals, outdoor sports, water, sun, mountains and so much more. Participating artists include Barb Gregoire, Jody Elston, Robert Hawks, Kathy Thayer, Deb Babcock, Julie Anderson and Frank Bradley. The inspiration for this particular show came from a group of artists sitting around a table— perhaps drinking a glass of wine or two — and realizing they should feature a few of things that each artist loves about Steamboat. “We wanted it to be a cohesive and new work,” Babcock said. “We all just really love liv-

Pottery artist Deb Babcock is just one of the many local artist who has their work showcased in a show at the Steamboat Springs Depot Art Center.

Gregoire and Babcock agreed that buying local, handmade pottery is not only affordable and functional, but it allows anyone to own a one-of-a-kind handmade piece of art. “There is such talent here in the Valley, and there is a lot of pottery out there that is manufactured,” Babcock said. “But handmade pottery is just so different. I mean you can tell with each of these pieces. You see the hands of the person who made it, and the work that went into it. They take so much care with it.” The show will continue until the end of the month.

As the crew at Butcherknife Brewing Co. in Steamboat Springs starts to heat mash tuns and mill grain this morning to make a saison, they won’t be alone. Five other breweries across Colorado will be following the same recipe, using the same ingredients and starting at the same time as part of a simultaneous, collaborative brewing event. Beer enthusiasts can follow along on social media beginning at 8 a.m. today using the hashtag #SimultaneousBrew. The event is the brainchild of Tim Myers, owner of Strange Craft Beer Co. in Denver, and is the first of its kind in Colorado and maybe even the country, according to a news release. Butcherknife Brewing Co. co-owner Mark Fitzgerald said Tuesday that they’ve only been brewing on the new 30-barrel system at their building up Elk River Road for about a month and a half and it’s great to be welcomed into the community of brewers in such a power-

ful way. While Fitzgerald and his partner Nate Johansing might have only fired up their largescale system in the past couple months, it’s been a long time coming for Butcherknife Brewing Co. Fitzgerald officially registered the business with the state in 2009 and has been working since then to make the Steamboat brewery a reality. Butcherknife’s Blonde X, a heavily hopped American blonde ale with 4.2 percent alcohol by volume, now is available on a select few taps across Steamboat, and the first patrons will step foot into their taproom Friday evening as part of a Young Professional’s Network event. In addition to the Blonde X, Butcherknife plans to have Amputator, a pale ale, and The Bridge, a Belgian specialty, as their staple brews that will be produced and distributed year round. Fitzgerald said they’ve put together a schedule for the rest of the summer that lays out which of the three standard See Brew, page 12

ing here in Steamboat and then we camp up with the Yampa Valley Curse idea.” With a whimsical yet functional style to each piece, Babcock described her work as more contemporary with bright colors. For a few of her pieces, she used a technique that captures the essence of Steamboat, literally. A few egg plates were even named “Devil’s Eggway” with a nod to the Devil’s Causeway hiking route. With carving techniques, Gregoire’s work also was inspired by the natural world around her. Her pieces were derived from the comfort she feels each and every time she comes back from a hike and sees the grandeur of the Valley. “When you come into the Valley, you feel like you are getting a big hug,” she said. Each piece stands apart from the others and allows each artist’s personality to shine through. “We love looking to see what everyone is up to and what they are doing,” Gregoire said. “It’s amazing to have that many people and that much variety in each of the pieces.” Local artists’ shows allow individuals to indulge their curiosity and make a trip to the Depot to converse with the artists. Throughout the month of June, the Depot will be open Saturdays and Sundays with the artists on hand to speak with people about the pottery pieces.

beers will be brewed every other week along with specialty brews and experiments for the intervening weeks. For the Simultaneous Saison, each participating brewery should end up with a subtly different beer despite using the same basic recipe and ingredients as they make it their own during the process, Fitzgerald said. They’ll all have a chance to sample each others’ work during the 18th annual Colorado Brewers Rendezvous on July 12 in Salida. Because of the size of Butcherknife’s setup, it will account for more than 50 percent of the total volume of the saison that is brewed. Fitzgerald said the simultaneous brew is a chance for them to prove their process and test themselves.

“I don’t know that we’ll get crazy with this,” he said. “We might. We feel free to experiment.” There’s a lot of downtime on a brewing day, Fitzgerald said, and he’ll be sharing some of the process through social media during the day. The saison will be made available to Butcherknife’s accounts in Steamboat, so it could start showing up on local restaurant taps in July. Unless Steamboat residents make the trip to Salida next month, they might not have the opportunity to test all six versions of the saison, but Fitzgerald said he hopes people do share feedback if they taste some of the others. “We’ll see how it turns out,” Fitzgerald said. “It’s going to be fun to see how we all do it.”

Which vegetables grow best here?


ven though our growing season is pretty short here in the Yampa Valley, there are many vegetables that can be grown from seed. This includes most root vegetables, many leafy vegetables, some GARDENING WITH herbs and Deb Babcock aers.few othThe key to success in growing vegetables here is to select a planting spot that will get lots of sunshine and is protected from the wind. This helps keep the soil warm and moist since wind will dry out your soil quickly. Also, because much of the soil around here has high clay content and low amounts of nutrients, you will want to amend it with compost or aged manure. This helps keep the soil loose so that the roots of your vegetables can move easily through it. Amendments also help the soil hold moisture and add nutrients as the amendments decompose further. Cool-season vegetables such as lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower, potatoes, beets, radish-

es, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, peas and carrots do best at our altitude since they can handle our cool nights better than warm season vegetables like many varieties of squash, tomatoes, peppers, beans and melons. When choosing which vegetable seeds to purchase, some things to look for are the days to maturity number on the packet as well as terms such as “cold tolerant,” “hardy,” “vigorous” and “fast growing.” Personally, I try to find seeds with maturity dates of 60 to 70 days or less. Since our last average frost date is around June 10 and our first average frost date is mid-August, it’s best to get seeds in as soon as the soil warms up and can be worked so that the plants mature and produce edible food for you before the first frost. You can extend the garden season somewhat with plant covers, walls-of-water, cold frames and other forms of protection that hold cold temperatures at bay. This is

growing them here is to surround them with water-filled plastic bottles or commercial products that you fill with water. The chemistry of cold temperatures and water cooling down after taking in the day’s heat causes the area inside the wall you’ve created to stay warm through the night, protecting your tender plants. Some of the hardiest herbs that grow well here include French tarragon, horseradish, most mint varieties and chives. Most cold-tolerant vegetable seeds such as lettuce, spinach, radishes, carrots and beets can be planted outdoors two to four weeks before our last frost date. Other vegetables with longer days to maturity such as squash, leeks, broccoli and Brussels sprouts can be started indoors and then brought outside to the garden when the weather warms up. Really determined garden-

ers can try tomatoes here, but be aware that they will take a bit of work. You’ll likely need to start them indoors, and then keep an eye on the nightly temperatures so that you can bring them inside (if planted in a movable pot) or protected from the evening cold with a cover of some sort. Look for the fastest-growing varieties and those that can handle the coolest temperatures.

Deadly brawl latest test of laws


Sadie Gurman

the Associated Press


HAPPY HOUR DAILY 3:00 - 6:00PM EVERY DAY Steak, Ribs, Game Specials, Sushi, Salads, Small Plates, Happy Hour Menu & Kid's Menu! • VEGETARIAN AND GLUTEN FREE OPTIONS •


A Colorado prosecutor said he’s frustrated that the state’s “Make My Day” law prevents him from charging a man who killed an acquaintance during a drunken brawl that spilled into his home, becoming the latest test to self-defense gun laws nationwide. The New Year’s Day shooting involving “foolish, drunken children” likely was not what lawmakers had in mind when they adopted Colorado’s law, Mesa County District Attorney Pete Hautzinger said. It protects homeowners from prosecution for using deadly force when someone illegally enters their home and there’s reason to believe that person will commit a crime. Self-defense laws like Colorado’s have received renewed attention recently after deadly shootings in Montana, Minne-

sota and Nevada. After a six-month investigation, Hautzinger decided last week not to file charges against Joseph Hoskins, 36, in the death of Randy Cook, 47. After a night of drinking at a party in the western Colorado city of Grand Junction, Cook and another man went to fight Hoskins outside his house. The fight moved inside and to Hoskins’ bedroom, where the homeowner said Cook tried to snatch away his shotgun. Hoskins tackled Cook and shot him, according to Hoskins’ account of the night, which was relayed to investigators through an attorney. “These grown men, otherwise basically upstanding, law-abiding citizens, are acting like drunken children, and as a result, a good man got killed, and I can’t hold anyone accountable for it in the criminal justice system,” Hautzinger said. Cook apparently had no involvement in an ongoing Face-

book feud between Hoskins and the other man that had been brewing for days before they decided to square off, he said. “It sticks in my craw to be unable to hold Joseph Hoskins accountable for his actions,” Hautzinger said. “But it’s not a very close legal call.” Hoskins did not return calls seeking comment, and his attorney, Terry Ryan, said he could not talk about the case. Cook’s brother, Stacey Cook, said aspects of the investigation remain undone. Prosecutors should have looked more closely at video evidence showing Cook walking away from the brawl and Hoskins following and taunting him before they fought, he said. “I believe you have a right to protect your home and your loved ones. You don’t have a right to taunt, set someone up, attack them ... and kill them and get away with it,” Cook said. “That’s not what this law was intended for.”

Health officials said the West Nile virus has been found in mosquitoes in Mesa County. The county health department announced the discovery Wednesday but didn’t say specifically where the mosquitoes were found. Mosquitoes infected with the virus were also found in Weld County this week. Weld County officials said the overall threat remained low but noted the virus had showed up earlier this year than in recent years.

Senators propose gas tax hike Joan Lowy

the Associated Press


Two senators unveiled a bipartisan plan Wednesday to raise federal gasoline and diesel taxes for the first time in more than two decades, pitching the proposal as a solution to Congress’ struggle to pay for highway and transit programs. The plan offered by Sens. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., and Bob Corker, R-Tenn., would raise the 18.4 cents-per-gallon federal gas tax and 24.4 centsper-gallon diesel tax each by 12 cents throughout the next two years, and then index the taxes to keep pace with inflation. The increase would be applied in two increments of 6 cents each. The plan also calls for offsetting the tax increases with other tax cuts. Senators said that could be done by permanently extending six of 50 federal tax breaks that expired this year, but they indicated they would be open to other suggestions for offsets. The plan was immediately embraced by industry and transportation advocacy groups seeking a long-term means to keep the federal Highway

Trust Fund solvent. However, it would require a lot of heavy lifting from Congress in the politically charged atmosphere of an election year to pass such a plan before late August, when the trust fund is forecast to go broke. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore., has indicated he’s looking for means to shore up the fund for about the next six months while working on a long-term plan. That would move debate on a gas tax increase or some other revenue-raising scheme until after the midterm elections in November. Revenue from gas taxes and other transportation user fees that for decades hasn’t kept pace with promised federal transportation aid promised to states. People are driving less per capita and cars are more fuel efficient, keeping revenues fairly flat. At the same time, the cost of construction has increased, and the nation’s infrastructure is aging, creating greater demand for new and rebuilt roads and bridges. The last time federal gas and diesel taxes were increased was in 1993 as part of plan to reduce the federal budget

deficit. Republicans castigated Democrats for the tax increase, and it was a factor in the GOP takeover of the House and Senate the following year. Since then, lawmakers have been reluctant to raise fuel taxes despite calls from several blueribbon commissions to do so. “For too long, Congress has shied away from taking serious action to update our country’s aging infrastructure,” Murphy said in a statement. “We’re currently facing a transportation crisis that will only get worse if we don’t take bold action to fund the Highway Trust Fund.” Sen. Tom Carper, D-Delaware, who attempted to increase the gas tax increase in 2010, said he was glad to see the idea “gaining more bipartisan support.” Since 2008, Congress has repeatedly dipped into the general treasury for money to keep the trust fund solvent, sometimes waiting until the government was the verge of slowing down payments to states. States have complained that the uncertainty over whether federal aid will be forthcoming has limited their ability to commit to larger projects that take years to plan and construct.

The U.S. economy still isn’t healthy enough to grow at a consistently strong pace without the Federal Reserve’s help. That was the message Fed Chair Janet Yellen sent Wednesday at a news conference after the central bank ended a two-day policy meeting. Yellen made clear that despite a steadily improving job market and signs of creeping inflation, the Fed sees no need to raise short-term interest rates from record lows anytime soon. Her remarks followed a statement from the Fed that it would further slow the pace of its longterm bond purchases. The bond purchases have been intended to keep long-term loan rates low. But the Fed offered no clear signal about when it will start raising its benchmark short-term rate. Stock investors appeared pleased with the message that rates would remain low. Major indexes surged more than half a percentage point, with the Standard & Poor’s 500 index reaching a record. And the yield on the 10-year Treasury note dipped to 2.59 percent from 2.65 percent

late Tuesday. “The last thing that Janet Yellen wants is for the market to think she’s anywhere close to tightening,” said David Robin, managing director at the brokerage Newedge. “She nailed it.” Most economists think a rate increase is at least a year away despite signs of rising inflation. At her news conference, Yellen downplayed inflation concerns. Recent inflation figures are “noisy,” she said. Her comment signaled that the Fed doesn’t see high inflation as a risk that it would soon need to combat by raising interest rates. David Jones, chief economist at DMJ Advisors, said the Fed and Yellen made plain that the central bank intends to keep rates low for a considerable time. “The Fed is saying the economy still needs help and that inflation is not a threat at the moment,” Jones said. “Yellen is a lot more worried at the moment about how the job market is behaving than how inflation is behaving.” At her news conference, Yellen declined to say whether she was “confident” about stronger economic growth coming. “Because there is uncertainty,”

she said. She then enumerated why the economy should accelerate eventually: Credit is easing. Households are repaying debts. The federal government is exerting less of a drag on growth. The job market is strengthening. Home prices are rising. Stock prices are up. And the global economy appears to be improving. “All of those things ought to be working to produce abovetrend growth,” Yellen said. They haven’t so far, five years after the Great Recession officially ended. A fierce winter caused the economy to shrink during the first three months of the year, putting it on a path similar to the meager 1.9 percent growth of 2013, according to its updated forecasts the Fed released Wednesday. Pay is scarcely managing to keep up with even low inflation. And a high percentage of the unemployed — 35 percent — have been out of work for six months or more. Referring to the long-term unemployed, Yellen noted: “It is conceivable that there’s some permanent damage there, too, to them, to their own well-being, their family’s well-being and the economy’s potential.”

President Barack Obama thinks he does not need authorization from Congress for any steps he might take to quell the alQaida-inspired insurgency sweeping through Iraq, the Senate’s top Republican said after the president briefed senior lawmakers Wednesday. The prospect of the president sidestepping Congress sets up a potential new clash between the White House and lawmakers, particularly if Obama should launch airstrikes or take other direct U.S. military action in Iraq. Administration officials have said airstrikes have become less a focus of recent deliberations but have also said the president could order such a step if intelligence agencies can identify clear targets on the ground. Obama huddled in the Oval Office for over an hour to discuss options for responding the crumbling security situation in Iraq with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Speaking to reporters as he returned to the Capitol, McConnell said the president “indicated he didn’t feel he had any need for authority from us for steps that he might take.” The White House has publicly dodged questions about whether Obama might seek congressional approval if he decides to take military action. Last summer, Obama did seek approval for possible strikes against Syria, but he scrapped the effort when it became clear that lawmakers would not grant him the authority. However, administration officials have suggested that the president may be able to act on his own in this case because Iraq’s government has requested U.S. military assistance. “I think it certainly is a distinction and difference worth noting,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Wednesday about the comparisons to the Syrian situation. In addition, an authorization for the use of military force in Iraq, passed by Congress in 2002, is still on the books and could potentially be used as a rationale for the White House acting without additional approval.

Survivors of a bomb blast at an illegal World Cup viewing site in northeast Nigeria that killed at least 14 people said Wednesday the force of the explosion blew off limbs and knocked people senseless. Unrelated to the attack, police said security forces arrested nearly 500 people, including a “terror kingpin” in the southeast of the country. At least 26 people were wounded in Tuesday night’s blast as soccer fans were viewing the Brazil-Mexico match in Damaturu, the capital of Yobe state, police said. “The bomb just threw me and I didn’t even know where I was,”

survivor Babagana Mohammed said. He recovered consciousness in the hospital. Another wounded victim, Musa Mohammed, said some people lost limbs in the blast. He said he had stopped by to buy airtime for his cellphone when a normal evening turned nighmarish. “I stopped at the viewing center to buy a recharge card and suddenly the blast went off. It was just like a flash of light and many people were killed. Some were amputated ... But thank God mine was a lesser injury.” Witnesses said a suicide bomber drove a tricycle taxi packed with explosives into the area. But Police Assistant Superintendent Nathan Cheghan said the explosion came from a car

parked and abandoned on the road in front. Cheghan said such viewing sites were banned in Yobe state two months ago because they have become a target of Boko Haram, an armed Islamic group that wants to turn Nigerian into an Islamic state. There was no immediate claim of responsibility but he blamed Boko Haram. The government spokesman on the insurgency, Mike Omeri, said Wednesday that Boko Haram plans to attack crowded areas in Abuja, the capital in the center of the country, with petrol tankers loaded with improvised explosive devices. Omeri spoke at a daily news briefing. Two separate car bombs in April killed about 100 people in Abuja.

The new president of Ukraine promised on Wednesday that government troops would soon stop firing on pro-Russian armed separatists, offering a chance to end the fighting that has killed hundreds and wracked the industrial east. In another concession to Moscow, Petro Poroshenko replaced his foreign minister, who had outraged Russians by using an obscenity to describe President Vladimir Putin.

Nouri al-Maliki went on a diplomatic offensive, reaching out in a televised address to try to regain support from the nation’s disaffected Sunnis and Kurds. Meanwhile, the government asserted that it had retaken par-




voiced concern that it could be a ruse. One key question is whether Moscow is willing and able to persuade the pro-Russia insurgents to accept Poroshenko’s plan. Rebel leaders have remained defiant, but in a sign of behindthe-scenes maneuvering, some of them visited Moscow this week to meet with senior officials and lawmakers. The two sides managed to arrange a brief truce Wednesday evening in the eastern town of Karlivka to allow pro-Russian forces to hand over the bodies of 49 Ukrainian troops who died.

An end to the two months of fighting and a promised safe exit for rebels would allow Putin to say that Russia has fulfilled its goal of protecting Russian speakers in eastern Ukraine, while Poroshenko can claim victory over the rebellion. The Ukrainian president discussed his plan for a unilateral cease-fire in a phone call with Putin late Tuesday, their offices said, and Poroshenko also spoke with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Russia’s foreign minister cautiously welcomed the move, but

tial control of a strategic city near the border with Syria. Al-Maliki’s conciliatory words, coupled with a vow to teach the militants a “lesson,” came as almost all Iraq’s main communities have been drawn into a spasm of violence not seen since the dark days of sectarian killings nearly a decade ago. The U.S. has been pressing alMaliki to adopt political inclusion and undermine the insurgency by making overtures to Iraq’s once-dominant Sunni minority, which has long complained of discrimination by his government and abuses by his Shiite-led security forces. In Washington, President Barack Obama briefed leaders of Congress on options for quelling the al-Qaida-inspired insurgency, though White House officials said the president had made no decisions about how to respond to the crumbling security situation in Iraq. While Obama has not fully ruled out the possibility of launching airstrikes, such action is not imminent, officials said, in part because intelligence agencies have been unable to identify clear targets on the ground.

Howelsen brings trail running back on Saturday Joel Reichenberger STEAMBOAT TODAY


CowPie Classic whenever possible between stints playing in Australia and elsewhere around the globe. He’s back this summer, however, and eager, especially for the 40th anniversary of the CowPie Classic, Steamboat’s treasured home tournament set this year for July 12. For some, summer is Steamboat Springs is as defined by Saturdays at a rugby game, cold beer in hand, as much as it is any hike or bike ride, and this weekend, those people will get to dive back into the seasonal rite. Those people will get plenty of opportunity to spectate and celebrate this season.

Saturday marks the first day of summer and Walter Magill is confident he knows a perfect way to celebrate that fact. The Howelsen Hill 8-miler trail run returns to SteamIf you go boat Springs What: Howelsen with an 8 a.m. Hill 8-Miler, start Saturday, 8-mile and a bright and 4-mile trail runearly welcome ning race to the new seaWhere: son.

The event includes two races, a 4-mile version and the namesake 8-mile run. The races start at Howelsen Lodge at the base of the hill, then work up Emerald Mountain’s southeast side, on the Bluffs Trail. Runners then go up Ricky Ridge, up Lupine to the quarry where an aid station awaits. Then they go down Blair Witch, MGM and eventually back to the bottom to finish again in front of Howelsen Lodge. “It’s not too challenging, not too long, and it’s a good showcase of Howelsen Hill for people who don’t know about all of the trails there,” Magill said. The race attracted 130 runners last year, and Magill is expecting to at least approach and perhaps surpass that number this year.

The Steamboat Springs Rugby team kicks off its summer season, playing at 1 p.m. at home Saturday at Whistler Field.


Rugby rumbles back into town Joel Reichenberger STEAMBOAT TODAY


The hard part, Steamboat Springs rugby coach Julian Bistow explained, isn’t getting new athletes to join the team. The hard part is getting them to come to the first training session. “A lot of them are apprehensive about coming out,” he said. Once they’re there, however, people tend to be hooked. “A lot of the players take it upon themselves to recruit friends they might meet at the gym or in a softball league, and they’re bringing their mates out,” he said. “The word of rugby is spreading nicely.” He and the returning veterans of the Steamboat side managed to get plenty of newcomers out for a practice this year, and in turn, they have plenty of new faces on the squad, who are joining a veteran team that’s eager to start its season at 1 p.m. Saturday at Whistler Field in Steamboat Springs. “I’m super impressed,” Bistow said. “These guys have played high school or college sports, and they are used to train-

ing, to doing the hard work. They learn things pretty quickly.” Carving a rugby player from, say, an American football player, isn’t an automatic task. The most important skill to teach newcomers is how to tackle. Players coming in from football, where they’re protected by pads and a thick helmet, tend to tackle with their heads. That’s simply not an option on the rugby field, where players wear nearly no protection. The tackling has to be done with the shoulders and the arms. “We lead with shoulders and protect the head,” he said. “I won’t put any new guys on the field until I see them tackling consistently in practice.” Fortunately, this year’s squad allows Bistow and the 12 rookies time to work. With a total of 36 players on the team, its bigger than it has been, and better, Bistow said. “We’ll be very strong, really strong,” he said. The first plank to that argument is the return of one of the program’s best players from the past decade, Chris Baumann. Baumann has joined the club only sporadically in recent seasons, making it for the

Legion baseball team places 2nd John F. Russell steamboat today

steamboat springs

The members of the Steamboat Springs Legion baseball team traveled to Wyoming last weekend hoping to improve on their second-place finish in the Green River Knights Invitational Baseball tournament in 2013. Unfortunately, a loss in the championship game left the Steamboat Springs Post 44 Legion team one victory short of its goal. Steamboat went 4-1 in the tournament, finishing second for the second year in a row, this time to a team from Price, Utah. “It was a disappointing loss,” coach Dave Roy said. “It was the team’s first loss of the season, and I know the guys really wanted to win this one.” Steamboat, now 8-1, opened the tournament with a 11-1 win against Jackson. Steamboat jumped out to a three-run lead, before adding eight more runs in the fourth to seal the win for pitcher Bryson McFarland. Charlie Fitzhugh led the offense with three hits including

two doubles. Ryan Jeep added two hits in the game. Steamboat continued to dominate in the second game of the tournament with an impressive 15-1 win against Lovel. Matt Regan earned the win with Jesse Pugh and Jeep coming in to relieve him late in the game. The trio combined for 11 strikeouts while facing 17 batters. The Steamboat offense collected eight hits in the game, which was shortened to just four innings because of the mercy rule. Jeep led the way with two hits, knocking in four runners. Steamboat picked up its third win of the season against Rock Springs. Billy Clark sparked Steamboat’s performance by striking out 10 batters in four innings of work and going three for four at the plate with a double, a home run and six RBIs in the 10-1 victory. Fitzhugh also had three hits in the game, including a double. Steamboat punched its ticket for the finals by downing host Green Mountain en route to the team’s fourth win of the weekend. Steamboat pitcher Regan was

able to keep Green Mountain off balance in the game by using a combination of curve balls and high velocity fastballs. He struck out 11 batters and only gave up two hits in six innings of work. The Steamboat pitcher’s teammates gave him plenty of offensive support by scoring five times in the top of the first and rolling to an 11-6 win in the game. Pugh and Jeep had two hits each in the game. Steamboat faced Price, Utah, in a back-and-fourth contest in the final game of the weekend. A three-run shot by Clark in the top of the seventh inning that tied the score at six runs apiece gave Steamboat hope that winning the tournament was within reach. However, Price scored one run in the bottom of the inning to claim the win and take the tournament title. Roy said the team was disappointed, but he expects the players to regroup this week before hosting a double-header against Mesa Ridge on June 28 at Emerald Field. The first game is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.

The reign of Spain is over US defense does job John Leicester

the associated press


The king is dead. The World Cup will have a new champion. And the Netherlands look increasingly like credible pretenders for that newly vacated crown. Just like France in 2002 and Italy in 2010, defending champion Spain is going home tail between its legs. Chile delivered the mortal blow to an uninterrupted 6-year era of dominance for Spain, the European and world champions whose dazzling footballers ran out of puff in Brazil. They were made to look vulnerable last week in losing 5-1 to the Netherlands and then simply plain ordinary in a 2-0 loss to a physical and quick Chilean side. The Netherlands, 3-2 winners against Australia on Wednesday, and Chile are now both sure to advance to the next knockout round having won their two first matches. They will now play each other Monday to determine which of them tops Group B and avoids a possible encounter with host Brazil in the first knockout game on June 28. In Wednesday’s evening game, Croatia ensured Cameroon won’t go further, delivering a 4-0 thumping to the African side whose injured star, Samuel Eto’o, didn’t come off the bench. This is shaping up as another tough World Cup for Africa. Only Ivory Coast has won so far — its opener, 2-1, against Japan. It plays

world cup Colombia in Group C on Thursday, with the other matches Uruguay vs. England in Group D and Japan vs. Greece in Group C. With strikers Mario Mandzukic and Ivica Olic both scoring and midfielder Ivan Perisic getting a goal, too, Croatia presents a tough challenge for Mexico in their last Group A match next Monday. Mexico needs at least a draw to guarantee a place in the last 16. In the other Group A match, Brazil should have little difficulty against the feeble Cameroon side that was reduced to 10 men after 40 minutes against Croatia when Alex Song was shown red. At the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, fevered Chile fans yelling “It’s over! It’s over!” taunted Spanish supporters, some of them in tears, bitterly contemplating the end of an era for one of football’s greatest ever teams. Its success — back-to-back European titles and the World Cup in 2010 — has provided succor in brutal economic times for Spaniards. “The only happiness we’ve had in recent years has been football,” said Beatriz Corral, who came to Rio from Madrid to cheer for Spain. “Now the crisis is complete. We don’t have bread or the circus.” Demolishing Spain last week showed the Dutch can be spectacular. Toughing out a comefrom-behind 3-2 victory against

Australia showed them to also be resilient and cool under pressure — vital qualities for the knockout rounds. Arjen Robben opened the scoring for the Netherlands before Tim Cahill brought the sides level a minute later with a stunning volley, one of the best strikes so far in the tournament that has seen 60 goals in 20 games. Mile Jedinak then converted a 54th minute penalty and Robin van Persie equalized for the Netherlands with his third goal of the tournament. A goalkeeping blunder by Maty Ryan then handed substitute Memphis Depay his first international goal, the winner for the Netherlands. With no points from its first two games, Spain will play only for pride when it meets Australia — also winless in its first two games — in their last match Group B match. Then it will be “adios” and a return home to the inevitable post-mortem of how a team that played like clockwork in defending its European title two years ago could fall so far, so quickly. In Brazil, the advancing age of key players, grievous mistakes from captain Iker Casillas and others, and coach Vicente del Bosque’s failure to read the writing on the wall fatally threw the Spanish machine out of gear. Spain’s demise was also a reminder of how difficult it is to retain the World Cup and for coaches to keep teams fresh and motivated in the four-year gap between tournaments.

Patent Office finds Redskins’ name offensive Joseph White

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ruled Wednesday that the Washington Redskins’ name is “disparaging of Native Americans” and should be stripped of trademark protection — a decision that puts powerful new financial and political pressure on the NFL team to rename itself. By a vote of 2-1, the agency’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board sided with five Native Americans in a dispute that has been working its way through legal channels for more than two decades. The ruling doesn’t directly force the team to abandon the name, but it adds momentum to the campaign at a time of increasing criticism of Redskins owner Dan Snyder from political, religious and sports figures who say it’s time for a change. “If the most basic sense of morality, decency and civility has not yet convinced the Washington team and the NFL to stop using this hateful slur, then

NFL hopefully today’s patent ruling will, if only because it imperils the ability of the team’s billionaire owner to keep profiting off the denigration and dehumanization of Native Americans,” Oneida Indian representative Ray Halbritter and National Congress of American Indians Executive Director Jackie Pata, two of the leading forces in the campaign to change the name, said in a statement. The Redskins quickly announced they will appeal, and the team’s name will continue to have trademark protection while the matter makes its way through the courts — a process that could take years. A similar ruling by the board in 1999 was overturned on a technicality in 2003. “We’ve seen this story before,” Redskins attorney Bob Raskopf said. “And just like last time, today’s ruling will have no effect at all on the team’s ownership of and right to use the Redskins name and logo. We are confident we will prevail once again.”

Snyder and others associated with the team long have argued that the Redskins name is used with respect and honor and is a source of pride among many American Indians. The ruling involves six uses of the Redskins name trademarked by the team from 1967 to 1990. It does not apply to the team’s American Indian head logo. If it stands, the team still will be free to use the name but will lose a lot of its ability to protect its financial interests. It will be more difficult for the team to go after others who print the Redskins name on sweatshirts, jerseys or other gear without permission. “Joe in Peoria is going to have a pretty good argument that he could put the ‘Redskins’ name on some T-shirt,” said Brad Newberg, a copyright law expert in Virginia. Newberg estimated that the ruling, if upheld, could cost the team tens of millions of dollars per year. Forbes magazine puts the value of the Redskins franchise at $1.7 billion and says $145 million of that is attributable to the team’s brand.

in win against Ghana Janie Mccauley

After one game and one impressive win, the U.S. defense is holding its own. Slowing down world player of the year Cristiano Ronaldo on Sunday in Manaus figures to be a far stiffer test for this young group. For all the times the Americans heard how inexperienced their back line would be heading into the World Cup, they’re riding high with confidence after Monday’s 2-1 opening win against Ghana. The victory greatly increased their odds of advancing out of a talented Group G, which earned the nickname “Group of Death” the moment the draw came out. “These 23 players, I think we all deserve to be here, really,” midfielder Alejandro Bedoya said Tuesday. “We’ve earned that right to play here. All these players have shown throughout training camp in Stanford and all that that they are more than capable of handling different things, and we have size, strength, speed back there as well.” While starter Matt Besler was removed for the second half of Monday’s victory in Natal as a precaution because of a tight right hamstring, John Brooks showed he is a reliable fill-in — and delivered the game-winner on a header in the 86th minute. Besler’s leg is expected to be fine by Sunday, coach Jurgen Klinsmann said.

world cup

Left back DaMarcus Beasley became the first U.S. player to appear in four World Cups. In a wide-open game, right back Fabian Johnson didn’t show quite the same ability to get forward as he did in warm-up matches. Center back Geoff Cameron was a steadying force. “I thought they did extremely well with the unexpected changes. I think all of the guys did very well together,” midfielder Graham Zusi said. “I thought Cam was an absolute monster back there for us. He found himself in great spots to clear some really dangerous balls. (Besler), when he was in there, was as solid as ever, and Brooksie came in and obviously did his part as well, and got that eventual game-winner. And the outside guys, Beas and Fabian, were their old selves, getting up and down the line, as dangerous as ever.” For many of the Americans, being a bunch of World Cup firsttimers hardly seems to matter. Only six players on Klinsmann’s 23-man roster were on the 2010 U.S. team in South Africa. That attitude stems partly from the fact Klinsmann has downplayed the youth issue from Day 1, refusing to let it be an excuse or something to even give a second thought. Klinsmann insisted from the moment his team reported to training camp at Stanford, California, on May 14 that he was unconcerned about the back four’s lack of experience.

Same course, new cast of players at Pinehurst Doug Ferguson

The sounds at Pinehurst No. 2 were the first indication that the second week of U.S. Open golf would not be exactly the same as the first one. Players arrived on the first day of practice to hear clanging from workers tearing down half of the grandstands around the 17th and 18th greens. They heard the whoosh of water coming from a hose that watered the greens to keep them softer. That didn’t make the stage for the U.S. Women’s Open feel any smaller. “We play good golf courses, but sometimes we don’t play great golf courses,” said Juli Inkster, playing the Women’s Open for the 35th time. “It seems the men play great golf courses week in and week out. I


think when we come here, we’re maybe a little more appreciative of playing a great golf course. It’s in fabulous shape. I really didn’t know what to expect, us playing after the men. And it’s turned out great. “You can’t even tell that the men were here the week before — except for the huge tents and everything.” The U.S. Women’s Open gets started Thursday in golf’s version of a doubleheader. Just four days after Martin Kaymer won the U.S. Open with the second-lowest score in history (271), it’s the women’s turn. Everyone from the 53-yearold Inkster to 11-year-old Lucy Li will get a crack on a Donald Ross course fresh on the minds of golf fans who watched the U.S. Open last week.

THE DOG HOUSE This is the writing cabin used by this famous local author who wrote “Where the Old West Stayed Young� and twice won the Western Heritage Award from the Cowboy Hall of Fame. The interior of the cabin can be recreated to its original state. It is registered with the Routt County Register of Historical Places and has the original doorstep with the author’s signature. The building’s logs are all stuctually sound but will need a new roof. The cabin is in 2 pieces, each 10x12 feet and ready for transportation by flatbed trailer. It is offered for $7,500 in an “as is where is� condition and can be seen and easily accessed about 7 miles west of Steamboat. It would make a nice caretaker’s cabin or a private study.
