Senator touts gun liability measure
Gas goes for a premium
Terror bill irks others in GOP
By CHARLES ASHBY Charles.Ashby@gjsentinel.com
DENVER — The political guns will be blazing over a measure to be introduced today not to ban military-style assault weapons, but to place strict liability over those who own, sell and manufacture them. Senate President John Morse, who is introducing the bill, said he’s taking this route rather than an outright ban on assault rifles because there already are more than 5 1/2 million such weapons on the streets already. A ban on new ones would do nothing to keep those weapons from being used in future shootings, such as the ones last year at an Aurora movie theater and Connecticut elementary school, the Colorado Springs Democrat said. “These guns are four times more powerful than handguns, so that means they’re more effective at killing, they’re more efficient at killing and they do a lot more collateral damage,” Morse said. “The net effect is, there are people that believe that they have the right to own these guns, but we need to be better at making sure that we’ve articulated clearly the responsibility that goes along with these guns.” Republicans criticized the idea when it was first proposed about a month ago as nothing more than a back-door attempt at banning firearms, while some Democrats have complained the idea may not be workable legally. “Senator Morse is proposing a full employment act for trial lawyers in an attempt to sue firearms dealers and manufacturers out of existence,” said Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman, R-Colorado Springs. “This law will also jeopardize law abiding firearms owners as they can be sued into bankruptcy if they have ever owned a firearm that later causes harm

Seasonal price spike appears to be early By AMY HAMILTON
Fuel prices that dipped below $3 a gallon in Colorado last month are accelerating toward the $4 gallon mark. The current average for a gallon of gas in the state was $3.59 as of Tuesday, according to AAA Colorado. That’s a quick spike from prices in early January, when the average price of a gallon of fuel in the state was $2.91, the automotive advocacy group reported. The national average for a gallon of fuel on Tuesday was $3.78. “The good news is that Colorado is staying below the national average,” AAA Colorado spokeswoman Wave Dreher said. “Though it’s climbing, it’s not as painful
as the rest of the country.” Dreher said AAA is predicting fuel prices will increase another 10 cents, reaching their peak prices in Colorado in mid-March and April. Fuel prices in the past couple of years have peaked earlier in the year than in 2010 and 2011, when prices traditionally tended to surge after the Memorial Day holiday and stayed steep through the summer months. Recent increases may be attributed to refineries changing their fuel compositions from winter blends to summer blends, Dreher said. Also, the Organization of the

DA drops case against suspect in sex assault
By MAGGIE MICHAEL autocrat Hosni Mubarak. The southern city of Luxor has been hit hard, with vacant hotel rooms and empty cruise ships. It also prompted accusations that authorities have let safety standards decline amid the political turmoil and infighting, although civil aviation officials said the balloon had been inspected recently and that the pilot may have been to blame, jumping out rather than stopping the fire. Authorities suspended hot-air balloon flights, a popular tourist attraction here, while investigators determined the cause. The balloon was carrying 20 tourists — from France, Britain, Belgium, Japan and Hong Kong — and an Egyptian pilot on a flight over Luxor, 320 miles

DENVER — Some Republican legislators are not happy with Rep. Jared Wright and his bill to prevent Colorado law enforcement officials from cooperating with federal agents when it comes to arresting terrorists. A to-do between the Fruita Republican and some of his colleagues started when some lawmakers on his REP. JARED WRIGHT side of the Introduces bill that political aisle began would bar state law to quesenforcement from tion what cooperating with authority a state could federal authorities have over a federal law. At issue is the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, which includes a provision first enacted after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. That provision allows federal authorities to arrest and detain terrorist suspects without normal legal due process. Wright’s bill to prevent law enforcement officials in the state from following that provision has created an unlikely alliance between the constitutional purists on the right and so-called ACLU extremists on the left, state legislators said. “It’s been understood by libertarian and civil liberty groups as being a threat to their liberty,” said Rep. Bob Gardner, R-Colorado Springs. “I under-

Hot-air balloon bursts into flames, killing 19 in Egypt LUXOR, Egypt — The terror lasted less than two minutes: Smoke poured from a hot-air balloon carrying sightseers on a sunrise flight over the ancient city of Luxor, it burst in a flash of flame and then plummeted about 1,000 feet to earth. A farmer watched helplessly as tourists trying to escape the blazing gondola leaped to their deaths. Nineteen people were killed Tuesday in what appeared to be the deadliest hot-air ballooning accident on record. A British tourist and the Egyptian pilot, who was badly burned, were the sole survivors. The tragedy raised worries of another blow to the nation’s vital tourism industry, decimated by two years of unrest since the 2011 revolution that toppled

Damaged remains of the hot-air balloon that crashed in Luxor, Egypt, lie in a field at the site of the accident Tuesday. The hot-air balloon flying over Egypt’s ancient city of Luxor caught fire and crashed into a sugar cane field, killing 19 foreign tourists. south of Cairo, officials said. The flights provide spectacular views of the ancient Karnak and Luxor temples and the Valley of the Kings, the burial ground of Tutankhamun and other pharaohs. According to initial indications, the balloon was in the process of landing after 7 a.m. when a cable got caught around a helium tube and a fire erupted, according to an investigator with the state prosecutor’s of-

Suspect says former refinery a hazard By AMY HAMILTON
A Clifton man was in jail Monday after calling the FBI and telling them he planned to commit suicide by blowing up the former Fruita Refinery. According to an arrest affidavit, Michael Leroy Schonlau, 36, 3286 E Road, called an FBI agent saying he had explosives on him and near him that were linked to a 200-million-gallon propane tank. He also warned about the presence of H2S gas, or hydrogen sulfide gas, in the air that could ignite. Schonlau told the agent that anyone who crossed over the railroad tracks in the area of the former refinery at 1493 U.S. Highway 6&50 would be a “trigger” for him, the affidavit said. Law enforcement closed the area between 14 Road and 16
Road on U.S. Highway 6&50 for a few hours Sunday night before Schonlau was taken into custody. Schonlau left two propane tanks at the site, and a gun was found underneath his driver’s side seat in his vehicle, the affidavit said. Mesa County Judge Craig Henderson during Schonlau’s first appearance Monday said he did not see probable cause in the affidavit for the most serious charge the defendant faced, possession or use of an explosive device, a class 5 felony. Henderson also said in court that Henderson needed a mental health evaluation and handed him a $10,000 bond. “The allegations are serious,” Henderson said. “He is perhaps a danger to himself or others.” Schonlau also faces charges of false reporting of explosives, possession of a weapon by a pre-

Energy groups line up to keep shale gas access By DENNIS WEBB
Six energy advocacy groups have signed a letter opposing draft legislation seeking to protect 183,000 acres west of Carbondale from oil and gas development, arguing in part that it would close off an area of promising shale gas development. “As you know, Western Colorado’s shale gas potential is emerging on a trajectory similar to other natural gas resources around the nation. As such, irrevocably removing a large contingency of Colorado’s shale gas reserve from future leasing, in our view, is inadvisable,” says the letter, sent Monday to U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo. Bennet recently released draft legislation to prevent future federal oil and gas leasing in the Thompson Divide area,

which stretches from south of Glenwood Springs nearly to Paonia Reservoir. It also would permanently withdraw currently leased areas from further leasing in cases when leaseholders voluntarily relinquish a lease via donation, purchase, exchange or other means. Altogether, it seeks to protect 183,000 acres. The industry letter states that “ensuring that natural gas supplies are available to power new and innovative uses remains a critical priority for our organizations. The emerging Thompson Divide shale gas resource will likely be one such supply.” It is signed by representatives of the West Slope Colorado Oil and Gas Association, Western Energy Alliance, Colorado Petroleum Association, Colorado Oil & Gas Association, Public Lands Advocacy and the La Pla-

Mesa County commissioners on Monday joined a growing chorus of public officials statewide to declare their opposition to Amendment 64, a ballot initiative that would essentially legalize the recreational use of marijuana in Colorado. Commissioners unanimously adopted a resolution opposing the measure, and at the same time made known their support for the “No on 64” campaign, the effort coalescing to defeat what the county resolution termed a “harmful measure.” Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hilkey appeared before commissioners to support their passage of the resolution opposing the amendment, which he said would “make Colorado more liberal than the Netherlands” when it comes to marijuana laws. Hilkey said passage of the legalization amendment would “be bad for kids, bad for drivers on our roadways, and bad for businesses.” Commissioner Janet Rowland raised a number of issues with the proposed amendment. She referenced a recent study by EdNews Colorado that claimed drug suspensions in Colorado schools rose 45 percent between 2007 and 2011, while expulsions for drug violations increased 35 percent. She also expressed concern that passage of the amendment would create a complex conflict with federal laws, which still treat marijuana as a Schedule 1 controlled substance.
One of the points raised in the county resolution is that the amendment would permit marijuana retail stores and growing facilities in the community, something Commissioner Steve Acquafresca noted was in direct conflict with local voters, who decided to ban medical marijuana dispensaries in both Grand Junction and Mesa County in previous ballot measures. “This will make medical marijuana look like small potatoes,” Acquafresca said. Other assertions made in the county resolution: that Amendment 64 would make Colorado the first state to try to profit from marijuana at the expense of children, would harm the state’s image as a healthy place to live, would undermine workplace safety, and would put Coloradans in danger of increased impaired driving. One of the groups behind the Amendment 64 initiative, the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, responded soon after county commissioners adopted their opposition resolution Monday. “If the goal is to control marijuana, reduce crime and protect our youth, (marijuana) should be sold in a tightly regulated market, such as that proposed by Amendment 64,” wrote the group’s advocacy director, Betty Aldworth, in an email to The Daily Sentinel. The amendment measure will appear on the November election ballot statewide.

SALT LAKE CITY — State public health officials said they’ve confirmed Utah’s first human case of West Nile virus this year. Officials said Monday that the person who tested positive is a Box Elder County resident between the ages of 18 and 39. West Nile symptoms include high fever, a severe headache and stiff neck, disorientation and confusion.
ta County Energy Council. Much of the area’s natural gas development has focused on sandstone formations, but energy companies are increasingly drilling in shale that lies beneath it. The letter says the measure would deprive the nation of needed revenue. It also suggested that it would deter companies from investing in exploratory leases because they count on being able to then access adjacent parcels. “Permanently removing the entire region from the American energy portfolio will damage current leaseholders — and mineral interest owners — while providing no means for adequate compensation,” it adds. Bennet has described the bill as a starting point for discussion and feedback.

Indians vs. Vegas water war brewing T
Obama must remember Colorado River is critical
wo axioms have long held true in the West: Water flows uphill to money and the U.S. government doesn’t keep its word when it comes to agreements with Indian tribes. Both of those statements appear to be playing out in the latest plan to provide more water for the sprawling metropolis of Las Vegas, Nev. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management on Friday approved a final environmental impact statement on a proposal that would allow the Southern Nevada Water Authority to build a 300-mile pipeline to carry water up and over the mountains from near the Utah-Nevada border. Separately, the Nevada state engineer in March approved a plan for the water authority, which supplies water to Las Vegas, to pump up to 84,000 acre feet of groundwater a year from four rural valleys in eastern Nevada. The problem is, according to the Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Reservation, the drilling will deplete the aquifer beneath the the Goshute Reservation and, as the tribal chairman put it, allow Las Vegas to “steal” the Indians’ water. The Goshutes aren’t alone. Ranchers and local governments in eastern Nevada, as well as environmental groups, have challenged the state engineer’s decision in court. But the Goshute Indians say the federal approval of the pipeline is especially distressing because it means the BLM and the Bureau of Indian Affairs have abdicated their responsibility to protect and preserve all tribal assets, including natural resources such as water. “What is most unconsiconable here is that the BIA agreed that this was in the best interests of the Indian tribes in the area without ever talking to us,” said Madeline Greymountain, vice chairwoman of the confederated tribes. Such high-handed decision-making on behalf of the Indian constituents it is supposed to represent sounds more like the corrupt BIA of the late 19th century than the supposedly enlightened agency that exists in the 21st century. But it is, after all, the same agency that lost billions of dollars of tribal funds over many decades. Only a lawsuit by multiple Indian tribes finally allowed Indians to receive some of that money last year. Las Vegas is, of course, an economic powerhouse in Nevada and the Southwest in general. It already takes millions of gallons of water each year from the Colorado River and periodically comes up with schemes to acquire more. But existing law and river compacts make that difficult. The fact that Vegas visionaries are looking elsewhere for water to meet future growth for the desert city is understandable. But the Goshutes have claims to the water on their reservation that long predate the development of Sin City. And federal courts have — in recent decades, at least — been inclined to support such Indian rights. If this latest water plan is to move forward, Las Vegas and federal authorities must do more to ensure that the Indians’ water is protected.
y job depends on the Colorado River, so when President Obama arrives in Grand Junction this week, I’ll be listening closely to see what the president’s plans are to protect this economic lifeline for the Grand Valley, our state and the entire Southwest.
Every year, a population 2.2 times greater than the entire Denver metropolitan area descends upon the river and its tributaries in Colorado to recreate, leaving a trail of $6.4 billion behind in exchange for hotel stays, meals, souvenirs, rafting trips and countless other products and services. If the Colorado River were a company, it would be the 19th largest employer on the Fortune 500 and rank ahead of companies such as General Mills, USAirways and Progressive Insurance. But without the leadership of President Obama and the adoption of conservation measures, we won’t always be able to rely on the river to create jobs and support our tax base. Years of drought paired with large population increases across the West have taken a severe toll on the river, and currently more water leaves the Colorado River than enters it each year. If we stay on our current course, the Colorado River will slow to a trickle. And so, too, will the tourism dollars flowing into our state, the profitability of our outdoor recreation economy, our jobs and our current way of life. If the president remembers one thing from his visit it should be: The Colorado River is good business for Colorado. TOM KLEINSCHNITZ President/Owner Adventure Bound River Expeditions Grand Junction
Credit reservoir system for good water flow in drought I read with interest that the Yampa River is running so low that water temperatures threaten the survival of fish in the river. Consideration is being given to releasing water from upstream reservoirs to save the fish. It is reminiscent of 10 years ago, during the previous drought and a family
Leadership lacking in discussion of National Monument name change
ast Thursday, you may have read in The Daily Sentinel about the House of Representatives passing bipartisan legislation to upgrade the Pinnacles National Monument in California to a national park. President Barack Obama, according to The Durango Herald last week, will use his power under the Antiquities Act to declare the Chimney Rock Archaeological Area near Pagosa Springs a national monument. That’s the same power another president, Republican William Howard Taft, used 101 years ago to create Colorado National Monument. Down in southwestern Colorado and in central California, they apparently don’t see “a federal bogeyman under every piece of sagebrush,” as former Fruita Mayor Ken Henry colorfully put it in a New York Times piece last June about the local discussion over changing the status of the monument to a national park. Even Congressman Scott Tipton, who’s introduced legislation to trim presidential authority under the Antiquities Act, signed on to the bipartisan request for creation of Chimney Rock National Monument, along with Sens. Mark Udall and Michael Bennet. If only that kind of leadership was evident here. But instead of consensus, we find division and confusion. The committee Henry co-chaired with rancher Warren Gore couldn’t reach agreement after lengthy discussion and community outreach. That makes national park status for the monument too hot a potato for Tipton, Udall and Bennet. Udall’s glowing words about landscapes and preservation at the 100th anniversary celebration of the monument last year apparently won’t be translated into legislation worthy of his description. Celebratory July 4th climbs of Independence Rock will have to suffice, at least for the time being. That’s too bad. It’s unfortunate that the enthusiasm of the audience of several hundred locals Udall convened for a public meeting at Colorado Mesa University prior to the local committee’s efforts didn’t result in a conclusion other than embarrassing deadlock. And, to the degree that misconceptions about what the change might bring were responsible for the deadlock, that’s also unfortunate and perhaps an indictment of all of us who either support or oppose the designation. Ironically, those bogeymen some found lurking under the sagebrush, pinon and juniper are
empowered by the very inaction that’s the result of the deadlock. Unless, of course, those fears of boundary expansion, more trouble with access to and from Glade Park and Pinon Mesa, potential problems with Fruita’s water line and reservoirs or more restrictive management practices “up top” were just smokescreens masking underlying politics. All of those supposed issues, in fact, are potentially made worse under the status quo. Finality, which could have become law with required congressional approval and only changed by a future vote in the U.S. Congress, remains vulnerable to either judges or the ink in a single signature by whoever might reside in the White House, now or in the future. Let’s suppose, for the sake of argument, that a president named Obama or Romney might decide some day that McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area would make a great addition to Colorado National Monument. Under the Antiquities Act, all that would take would be a signature. But expansion of the boundaries of a national park would be an entirely different process, requiring instead the approval of Congress. Access to Glade Park and reservoir-pipeline issues could be written into a national park designation approved by Congress rather than left to the whim of the courts. So could confirmation of the fact that there’s absolutely no difference in management of a national park compared to management of a national monument. Subsequent changes would require congressional approval. All that could add certainty to what some still see as an uncertain situation. Something about noses and faces comes to mind. When Air Force One approaches and later departs the airport formerly known as Walker Field this week, it’s possible the president may steal a glance at the towering spires and red rock canyons of the Colorado National Monument that Gov. Romney likely viewed a few weeks ago. Less visible, but very apparent, is the total lack of leadership that apparently has cost us the opportunity to crown that jewel with the status it deserves, designation as a national park. “A child of five could understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.” — Groucho Marx. Jim Spehar has no idea how his spouse, who wears the flat hat of a seasonal ranger on the monument each summer, feels about these issues.

vacation downstream at Echo Park on the Yampa. Flows were so low that my sixyear-old son waded across the Yampa and only got wet to his knees. You see, environmentalists are so proud of the Yampa being one of the last uncontrolled rivers in the West. Yet, at times of drought, it almost ceases to flow, while the adjacent, highly controlled Green River continues to flow due to releases from the dreaded Flaming Gorge Reservoir. No thanks to the environmentalists, hated reservoir water continues to flow for power generation, irrigation, recreation and municipal use in river systems throughout the West. The reservoirs are doing exactly what they were designed to do. It is ironic that the iconic Yampa may need some of this stored water for its very survival. DENNIS GORSETT Grand Junction
Grandiose titles won’t change what a facility has to offer The idea of changing the Colorado National Monument to a national park is strangely reminiscent of the new title for Mesa State College. Historically, when a college became a university, it was because it was fairly large and offered a diversity of programs. Likewise, national parks have tended to be larger and to offer more diversity of landscapes than monuments. Compare it to Yellowstone or Yosemite. It seems that nowadays we can assign whatever title we want to something, for the sake of marketing. So, while I’ve never earned my doctorate, I’ve decided to go with the title of “Dr.” There are reasons why CU and CMU
don’t both deserve the status of university. Let’s not make the same mistake with the monument just to increase tourism and business. DAVE POLING Grand Junction
Making wise health choices won’t save you tax money Recently, I was able to speak to Ellen Steiner with Sen. Michael Bennet’s office. Steiner answered questions about the Affordable Care Act. I appreciate Bennet’s office for providing an avenue for questions about the ACA. My specific question was regarding any provisions for those who live healthconscious, low-risk lives, who are little or no burden on the health care system. Will there be any provisions or breaks for them, or will the tax burden be the same on them as on those who are less health conscientious? The answer was, no. The ACA makes no distinction between those who eat healthily and exercise regularly and those who jeopardize their health by smoking, drinking and undisciplined eating. All will be taxed equally. I could afford the tax, I suppose, if I canceled my gym membership, but how ironic would that be? If Steiner has misinformed me, I would appreciate someone offering correction. However, my conclusion is that, under the ACA, taking personal responsibility for our health means nothing. I am fully supportive of affordable health care, but if this is going to be handled by the government, it should not be this government. TIMOTHY KING Grand Junction
Michelle Obama treads carefully in defining her first-lady role
ot surprisingly, Barbara Bush said it most succinctly: “The first lady is going to be criticized no matter what she does.” And how. One needn’t prod Michelle Obama for confirmation — or most any other first lady in history. There is no “just right” in this. Anything is either too much or too little. A review of first lady comments posted on The National First Ladies’ Library website (www.firstladies.org/biographies) further confirms the difficulties faced by the wives of presidents. Mrs. Obama is but the latest to the challenge. A common thread suggests that more than a few disliked the role but accepted it as a duty. Mary Todd Lincoln, politically sophisticated and well read, left little to speculation: “I do not belong to the public; my character is wholly domestic, and the public have nothing to do with it.” Others further down the line were unapologetic in their contempt for the mixed blessing of first lady, including Bess Truman, who said: “We are not any one of us happy to be where we are but there’s nothing to be done about it except to do our best.” Thus, anyone who criticized Mrs. Obama for saying she sometimes fantasizes that she’ll “walk right out the front door and just keep walking” doesn’t know much about first lady history. They were invariably tough, smart women who sought to find a way to reconcile their own true selves with the demands of public expectation. In recent years, as politics have become more broadly partisan and women have assumed more prominent roles, first ladies have become fairer game in the maelstrom we call the public square. Hillary Clinton infamously set off bonfires of inanities with her now innocuous-sounding remark that she was not “some little woman, standing by my man like Tammy Wynette.” Or that she wasn’t one to stay home and bake cookies. Au contraire, as it turns out. Hillary could teach Tammy a thing or two about family loyalty, and she was hardly the first to eschew the kitchen. Sarah Polk proclaimed in the mid-1800s: “If I get into the White House, I will neither keep

house nor make butter.” Mrs. Obama, though she holds a law degree from Harvard, has turned away from Clinton’s ambitious example and focused instead on the ultimate in domesticity — not just cooking but raising the food that goes to table. Her new cookbook, “American Grown,” features glossy photos and a personal diary of gardening in the city, albeit in the nation’s best yard with significant staff help. But even such a noble quest — to make the nation healthier and more aware of nutrition — is not without controversy. Friday’s Washington Post featured comments from fans and critics of the first lady’s gardening platform. Some don’t like her suggestion that consumers buy locally, insisting that Big Agri feeds the world and is unjustly maligned. But buying a few tomatoes at the local farmers market is hardly an indictment of corn subsidies. Eating locally grown produce in season is a basic tenet of healthy eating. Others are critical of Michelle Obama’s choice to focus on uber-domestic issues rather than directing her intellect and education on “more important” issues. Begging to differ, there is nothing more important than food — how we raise it, how we distribute it, and how we consume it. At a time of rampant obesity, especially among children, nutrition should be a national priority. Tracking first ladies through history is a tour of women’s development from disenfranchised chattel to champions of choice that also offers a glimpse into how conflicted we remain about women’s proper role. What upsets so many in Obama’s own political camp is that this first lady has so vividly chosen family over career, finding expression in the most elemental of endeavors — digging her hands into Mother Earth and offering nourishment to her young. Such an explicit embrace of a traditional female role is nothing short of heresy to some. In fact, it is a brave stance by a wise woman whose priorities deserve to be celebrated. There will be plenty of time for career and Big Issues beyond the family table once the children are grown — a lesson best learned sooner than too late.

Throwing star used to break up fight SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City police are looking for a homeless man they say used a Chinese throwing star against a husband who was allegedly choking his wife. Authorities were called about 2 a.m. Sunday to an apartment complex where the couple had been arguing. The fight eventually moved to the complex’s parking lot, and police say the husband choked his wife at one point. Salt Lake City Police Lt. Scott White says a transient who’s known by the name “Strange” got involved in the dispute and injured the man in the neck with the throwing star.
Mob boss to testify in own defense BOSTON — Former Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger will take the stand in his own defense when he goes on trial next year on charges that he participated in 19 murders, testifying about his claim that he was given immunity, his attorney said Monday. Attorney J.W. Carney Jr. said in court that Bulger will testify about his claim that he was given immunity for any crimes he committed while he was a top-echelon FBI informant against the Mafia. “James Bulger will testify at this trial and he will present evidence, corroborated by others, that he received immunity from the Department of Justice,” Carney said.
Shooting victim was in disabled state MASSILLON, Ohio — A woman whose husband of 45 years is accused of shooting her in the head in her hospital bed in a possible mercy killing had been in the intensive care unit in an extremely disabled state, a prosecutor said on Monday. Barbara Wise was incapacitated before John Wise stood at her bedside and shot her on Saturday with a handgun, Akron assistant city prosecutor Craig Morgan said. John Wise entered his wife’s room at Akron General Medical Center and fired at least one round from the handgun, police said. One shot was fired, hospital officials said.
NASCAR fan hit by lightning improving LONG POND, Pa. — The president of Pocono Raceway says a fan struck by lightning in the parking lot at the track has been upgraded from critical condition to stable. Raceway president and CEO Brandon Igdalasky provided the update Monday as he expressed condolences to the family of 41-yearold Brian Zimmerman, who was killed by another lightning strike at Sunday’s rain-shortened NASCAR race. The badly injured fan was among nine people who were hurt as storms swept over the track.
Two boys, 13, take interstate joy ride COLUMBUS, Ohio — Two 13-year-old boys stole a parent’s car in Ohio and drove it hundreds of miles to Kansas City, Mo., where they were found sleeping in it in an alley on Monday, police said. The runaways, from the Columbus area, were taken into custody by officers investigating a suspicious vehicle that matched the description of the BMW taken early Saturday from the mother of one of the boys, Kansas City police said. Police there had known the boys might pass through the area because of information posted to Facebook, Capt. Steve Young said.

Death linked to Okla. wildfire By JUSTIN JUOZAPAVICIUS Associated Press
MANNFORD, Okla. — The fields around Connie Laxton’s home in Oklahoma were black with ash Monday after a roaring wildfire tore across her property and ran right up to her gray, brick ranch home — where it suddenly stopped. The fire line is marked in the grass a foot from the house, and the smell of smoke permeates the inside. One side of the three 40-foot pear trees in the yard is charred gray and black, the other is leafy and green. “I went through a tornado in ‘84, and it took our house, but we’ve never seen anything like this,” said Laxton, who believes the pear trees deflected sparks that otherwise would have landed on her roof. Three dozen wildfires have scorched portions of Oklahoma since Friday, leaving only ashes in some spots. Emergency officials said Monday that Cleveland County firefighters recovered a body from a home that had been subject to an evacuation order as a wind-whipped fire roared near Norman on Friday. Emergency managers say dozens of homes are among the 120 structures statewide that burned to the ground.

Fires elsewhere in the state consumed thousands of acres — though in some areas it appeared fires hopscotched across the landscape, damaging one home but not its neighbor, much like a tornado. “Tornadoes don’t bother me. I’m not scared of them. A tornado you can take cover, go into a storm shelter. With a fire, you go into the storm shelter and you get burned up,” said Christona Fields, who lives just south of Mannford.

Donated clothes and water were piled under tents, and fire victims grabbed items to help tide them over.

U.S. banking on Syrian rebels to win By BRADLEY KLAPPER Associated Press
WASHINGTON — With Syrian diplomacy all but dead, the Obama administration is shifting its focus on the civil war away from political transition and toward helping the rebels defeat the Syrian regime on the battlefield. The U.S. still wants to avoid any military involvement, banking on a complicated policy of indirect assistance to the rebels and hope that the ragtag alliance of militias can demoralize

In Aleppo, the rebels are exceeding the expectations of military experts. Despite intense bombardment from warplanes, they’ve now withstood two weeks of regime counterattacks and are clawing toward the city center. Militiamen also are stepping up guerrilla-like forays in central districts of Damascus
President Bashar Assad’s betterarmed forces and end the war without far greater casualties. It’s a scenario analysts see as unlikely, even as the opposition gains ground in Aleppo, Damascus and elsewhere, and as the cadre of high-level defections from Assad’s government grows. Prime Minister Riad Hijab became the latest to abandon Assad on Monday, rebels said. The defections are “the latest indication that Assad has lost control of Syria and that the momentum is with the opposition
once firmly in Assad’s hands. Those gains have given the Obama administration hope that the tide of the war is turning — and without the need for the U.S. to reconsider its opposition to airstrikes, no-fly zones or even weapons sales to the antiAssad forces. And with U.N. special envoy Kofi Annan quitting his diplomatic efforts and the rebels starting to carve out larger toeholds in Syrian territory, the U.S. focus has changed accordingly.
Missouri mosque razed in fire; blaze is second of the summer By MARIA SUDEKUM

Only remnants indicated a building had been there, including some stone pillars that were still standing and a few pieces of charred plywood loosely held up by a frame.

A fire reported around the same time on July 4 has been determined to be arson, but no charges have been filed.

Michael Kaste, special agent in charge of the Kansas City office of the FBI, said the investigation into Monday’s fire was in the preliminary stages, and that about 30 people had been assigned to the investigation.

LONDON — The widow of an Israeli athlete slain during the 1972 Munich Olympics denounced the IOC during a memorial Monday to honor the dead, shouting “Shame on you!” for failing to offer a moment of silence during the opening ceremony for the London Games. Ankie Spitzer took the podium during the service for the 11 athletes and officials killed in a terrorist attack and pointedly directed her remarks to International Olympic Committee head Jacques Rogge, who had spoken moments earlier and was pres-
Families had pressed Olympic organizers to commemorate murdered athletes ent in the room, together with London organizing committee chairman Sebastian Coe. “Shame on you IOC, because you have forgotten 11 members of the Olympic family,” she said in a voice laden with passion. Saying the IOC was discriminating against the Israelis because of their Jewish faith, Spitzer insisted the dead deserved to be honored as Olympians in an Olympic context and not in the various places where memorials have been held, including Monday’s event at Lon-
HOROSCOPES Today’s birthday (Aug. 7). You’ll love the companionship this month, and new friends send you in adventurous directions. You will find many opportunities for advancement in September as you apply your enterprising nature. Avoid extremes in November. Family unity is featured in 2013. A bold move in June puts money in your pockets. Aries (March 21-April 19). The requirements made of you may not seem all that appealing at first, but if you find a way to make them interesting, you evolve. To self-actualize is to enjoy the thing that you must do. Taurus (April 20-May 20). There are no insignificant mysteries of life, so delve into the area that interests you. The answer to some small problem could be the miraculous cure for what ails the world. Gemini (May 21-June 21). You’ll be involved in a complex activity that stretches your skills, helps you grow and fulfills your potential. You’ll invest many hours to excel at this endeavor, and it will be worth it. Cancer (June 22-July 22). No life is without sorrow, but you’ll feel comforted in the knowledge that sorrow won’t stick to you; it will pass. Knowing this, you are willing to risk more to reach the heights of happiness. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22). True power is the ability to empower others. There are those who will benefit big time from learning what you’ve known for so long. You’ll hone your leadership skills as you teach others to help themselves. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Someone erroneously told you,
“To get the fruit, you have to climb the tree” — or something akin to that. The truth is that sometimes the fruit hangs low, and all you have to do is reach up and pluck it off. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Keeping up with people is harder than it should be. You have so many ways to stay in touch, and yet your responsibilities and distractions make it challenging to find the time. But try. You’ll be glad you did. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You won’t progress without accepting a risk. This comes as no surprise, as you’ve taken similar risks in the past and done quite well indeed. Now you thrill to the challenge. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Loved ones are not always as thoughtful as you might like, and yet you find a way to forgive. Also, you’ll provide an opportunity for them to make up for their mistakes. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll put a positive spin on things. It’s not really optimism; it’s practicality. Seeing the best takes just as much energy, but makes you and everyone else feel better in the process. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A case of the “super-strong humans” will dictate your morning action. Your impulses are powerful, and your motives are so deeply rooted that you may not even be consciously aware of them. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s only human nature to be suspicious of or even repelled by weak attempts at action. But boldness attracts support. You’ll be inspired by a courageous move.

In Memoriam Crawford Clement Crawford Clement died on August 7, 2009; three years ago today and we miss you like it was yesterday.

don’s Guildhall. “You owe it to them,” she declared. The remarks punctuated an otherwise solemn event attended by several members of the British leadership and senior members of the country’s Jewish community. Rogge earlier had recalled being an Olympian in 1972, when he competed in sailing. He said he would never forget the tragic events of that year, and that there is no justification for terrorism.
“Even after 40 years, it is painful to relive the most painful moments of the Olympic movement,” he said. “I can only imagine how painful it must be for the families and close personal friends of the victims.” The proposal for a moment of silence has been controversial, with family members saying Olympic officials have made excuses for 40 years as to why it should not be held. The IOC has argued that the opening ceremony isn’t an appropriate forum for a moment of silence.
ANNIE’S MAILBOX Dear Annie: For the past seven years, I’ve worked for “Joe” and his assistant, “Nancy.” Nancy recently took a fourmonth leave due to stress and anxiety. During her absence, Joe and I went to lunch a few times and dinner on one occasion. Nothing romantic happened. I planned to let Nancy know at the time, but didn’t think it was important enough to send an email. I left her a voicemail to call me and hoped we’d get together during her leave. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance. When she came back, Nancy accused me of “swooping in” and taking over Joe. I have tried talking to her, but she’s angry that I didn’t tell her during her leave. I explained that I tried, but she never called me back. She claims I crossed her territory and now can’t be trusted. She believes I was plotting all along. I also suspect that she is spreading rumors about me, saying I want to sleep with Joe. That’s not true. I am trying my best not to let this bother me. Joe has spoken to her, but I don’t have any idea what he said. The problem is, it is extremely uncomfortable in the office now. Although I love my work, I may need to look for a new job. It upsets me that someone could be so cruel, even though I tried my best to be supportive during her leave. Any suggestions for coping with Nancy? — Co-worker Dear Co-worker: Nancy seems very proprietary toward Joe, and unless they are a romantic couple, he should set her straight. Her behavior is unprofessional and disruptive. But you are not entirely blameless. Having lunch and dinner with your boss could be misconstrued, and you were well aware that this would bother Nancy. You should have made a greater effort to speak to her during her absence. Apologize sincerely for unintentionally stepping on her toes, reassure her that you have
ADVICE TO YOU
no interest in Joe, and then let her make the next move. If time does not alleviate the situation, you may opt to take it up with human resources. n
Dear Annie: My husband is retired, while I still work four days a week. He hires someone to cut the grass, but I trim the bushes, pull the weeds, wash the windows and do all the housecleaning and laundry. He will help cook because I don’t have time and he likes to eat. So what does he do all day? He hangs out with his friends, goes for a walk or to the gym, attends Bible study classes and visits the sick. I think maybe I should get sick and see if he will visit me. — Overworked in Ohio Dear Ohio: While it’s admirable that your husband visits the sick, he apparently believes that retirement means he is free from all obligations except those he willingly chooses. This is unfair to you. First try talking to him about it, explaining that you see no reason to have two jobs while he has none. Tell him that pitching in and doing his share will help your marriage. But you also are taking on more than you need to. If you can afford it, hire someone to do the more difficult, timeconsuming chores. Leave his laundry where it falls, and let him handle it. You can make choices, too. n
Dear Annie: “Disgusted in Louisiana” took issue with your response to “Desperate Housewife” that all couples need to tend to their marriages and flirt with their spouses. I am sorry to hear how unhappy she is. I have been married to the love of my life for 50 years. Yes, perhaps the passion from long ago is gone, but we flirt, snuggle and have “date night,” and my heart still flutters when he enters the room. I cannot imagine my life without him. Growing old together is exactly what we treasure. — Happy in El Paso
But Spitzer, the widow of fencing coach Andrei Spitzer, pointed out that this year’s ceremony included not one but two moments of silence and demanded to know why it was appropriate to offer thoughts in memory of others but not the slain Israelis, who were, after all, Olympians. “Is the IOC only interested in power and money and politics?” Spitzer asked. “Did they forget that they are supposed to promote peace, brotherhood and fair play?” The remarks won Spitzer a
standing ovation, and prompted whoops of approval. The Munich Olympics were meant to right an historical wrong. They were the first held in Germany since the 1936 Berlin Olympics, which were tainted by images of Nazism. But the Black September Palestinian militant group penetrated the laxly secured athletes village and took Israeli team members hostage. Eleven died at the village or in a botched rescue attempt. The games were briefly suspended, but the Olympics were forever changed. Security costs soared and keep rising with every games.

TODAY IN HISTORY Tuesday, Aug. 7 Today is the 220th day of 2012. There are 146 days left in the year. On Aug. 7, 1942, U.S. and other allied forces landed at Guadalcanal, marking the start of the first major allied offensive in the Pacific during World War II. (Japanese forces abandoned the island the following February.) In 1782, Gen. George Washington created the Order of the Purple Heart, a decoration to recognize merit in enlisted men and non-commissioned officers. In 1882, the famous feud between the Hatfields of West Virginia and the McCoys of Kentucky erupted into full-scale violence. In 1912, Theodore Roosevelt was nominated for president by the Progressive Party (also known as the Bull Moose Party) in Chicago. New Jersey Gov. Woodrow Wilson accepted the Democratic presidential nomination at his summer home in Sea Girt. Sergei Prokofiev premiered his Piano Concerto No. 1 in D-flat major in Moscow. In 1927, the already opened Peace Bridge connecting Buffalo, N.Y., and Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada, was officially dedicated. In 1947, the balsa wood raft Kon-Tiki, which had carried a six-man crew 4,300 miles across the Pacific Ocean, crashed into a reef in a Polynesian archipelago; all six crew members reached land safely. In 1959, the United States launched the Explorer 6 satellite, which sent back images of Earth. In 1961, Yale psychology professor Stanley Milgram began conducting his controversial human behavior experiments concerning obedience toward authority figures. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy awarded FDA official Dr. Frances O. Kelsey the Distinguished Federal Civilian Service Medal for her diligence in blocking approval of thalidomide, a sedative found to cause severe birth defects. In 1964, Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, giving President Lyndon B. Johnson broad powers in dealing with reported North Vietnamese attacks on U.S. forces. In 1971, the Apollo 15 moon mission ended successfully as its command module splashed down in the Pacific Ocean. In 1989, a plane carrying U.S. Rep. Mickey Leland, D-Texas, and 14 others disappeared over Ethiopia. (The wreckage of the plane was found six days later; there were no survivors.) In 1998, terrorist bombs at U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania killed 224 people, including 12 Americans.

Gold’s Gym honoree loses 130 lbs., but gains so much
By DUFFY HAYES
in the gym who have had success. They started with walking, and gradually expanded their workouts to all corners of the gym. “It’s making this a habit, and overcoming your fears,” Leany said. “And once they start seeing a little bit of success, it gets the ball rolling.” With Cotter, Leany wanted to moderate her progress, change her lifestyle for the long run. Since 2010, Cotter has lost an average of eight pounds a month — and it’s clear the gradual change is for good. “It’s completely different now. I feel like myself again. I’m not sitting on the couch all day, barely paying attention to my own children. I’m so much more confident in how I present myself,” Cotter said. It’s important to note these amazing weight-loss journeys are never simple stories of predictably flat, positive progress. They’re more like a roller-coaster, with amazing peaks and devastating valleys. Cotter’s story is no different. “I’ve definitely had some low moments. I’ve sat, and knelt right here in this gym, and just cried. I’ve come in on days and just absolutely lost it,” she recalled. Leany added: “It’s really more mental than physical.” Cotter said her family kept her going during difficult times. “I was scared to let them down,” she said. But today, Cotter is intent on being inspirational to others — people who are overweight, intimidated by the gym, ignorant of how to change their lives, personally defeated. People with no self-worth. “All it takes is that first step, to get up and be active — take the initiative,” she said. “Most importantly, they need to know that they are worth it. I didn’t feel that way until I had someone backing me up, and my parents decided to help. That’s what it took for me to believe in myself.” “Just take the first step.”
Clifton’s Lindsey Cotter found something at the end of the emotional journey that left her 130 pounds lighter. Her self-worth. She also picked up something a bit more tangible. Cotter recently received the “Most Inspirational” award among all the Gold’s Gyms worldwide, a recognition she was awarded in Las Vegas in July with her personal trainer, Deb Leany, close at hand. “There’s no price tag that you can put on healthiness and happiness,” Cotter said recently from the sprawling Gold’s Gym in Grand Junction, 700 Maldonado St. — her home away from home five to six times a week now. It’s hard to imagine the person she and Leany describe from October 2010. They use words like “timid,” “depressed,” “scared.” They both say she was “defeated.” Cotter says at her heaviest, she was 300 pounds. Today she is smiling, fit, ebullient. She talks about her past as if it’s truly history. More than once she says she’s “fallen in love” with fitness and her new healthy lifestyle. “Truly, I don’t remember Lindsey at that stage. She’s just a different person — inside and out,” said Leany, the trainer who’s been on the journey with Cotter every step of the way. Cotter’s story isn’t simply remarkable because of sheer numbers. It’s inspirational because of the depths of despair she experienced, and how those lows spurred her to do great things with her life. The sad side of her story begins in February 2009, when Cotter’s brother, John Fullmer IV, was killed in a drunk-driving crash. Just 19 months later, Cotter’s father, John Fullmer III, a well-known local football coach, died when his truck rolled after leaving the roadway. He was overweight, and Cotter believes the reason his truck swerved is because he suffered an attack of angina. A month later, facing a real life

Lindsey Cotter, left, of Clifton, works out on a Jacobs Ladder machine with her trainer, Deb Leany, at Gold’s Gym. Cotter won the “Most Inspirational Member” award for Gold’s Gyms worldwide after losing 130 pounds since 0ctober 2010. The mother of an 8-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy, she weighed 300 pounds when she started working out at Gold’s Gym that month. Her membership was a gift from her stepfather after she became despondent following the deaths of both her brother and father in separate car wrecks, several months apart. spiral, Cotter was visiting her mother in South Carolina when her stepfather heard her say that she thought she could really change her body — and her life — if she only had someone who could show her what to do in a
gym. He surprised her by setting up some personal training sessions at the Grand Junction Gold’s Gym. Cotter took the opportunity, and ran with it big time. She met Leany in October 2010, and
the two immediately developed a bond. They started by talking about food, and how Cotter could tweak her diet to better play the caloric numbers game that is at the heart of losing weight. Leany introduced her to other people
Tdap clinic serves as reminder for older students to get immunized By EMILY SHOCKLEY
Pencils. Notebooks. Immunizations. They’re all on the back-to-school checklist. Starting with kindergarten, Colorado students are expected to arrive for their first day of school immunized for measles, mumps, rubella, polio, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, Hepatitis B and chickenpox or have proof they had chickenpox. Although some parents get into the flow of early childhood vaccinations, School District 51 spokes-
woman Christy McGee said some parents need a reminder that a booster shot for tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) is required for students before they start sixth grade. “It seems like routinely we have a lot of fifth-graders who when they leave fifth-grade haven’t had that Tdap (vaccine) yet. That doesn’t mean they won’t get it before they come back in the fall,” McGee said. This is the fifth school year the Tdap booster has been required in Colorado schools. To make the process easier for par-
Immunizations students should have when they start school n Measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine - two doses before starting any grade. n Hepatitis B vaccine - three doses before starting any grade. n Diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis vaccine - five doses before starting any grade (only four doses needed if the fourth vaccine was given on or after a child’s 4th birthday). n Polio vaccine - four doses needed for all grades (only three doses needed if the third dose was given on or after a
child’s 4th birthday). n Varicella vaccine - one dose or proof of chickenpox infection for incoming middle school and high school students, two doses or proof of chickenpox infection needed for elementary school students. n Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) booster - one dose for middle school and high school students. — Source: Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment
ents, the Mesa County Health Department will host walk-in Tdap immunization clinics from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Aug. 14 and 15 at the Mesa County Community Services Building at 510 29 1/2 Road in Conference Room 1060. The Tdap vaccine will be offered at the clinic for $14.50. Families should bring a child’s immunization records and, if the child has one, a Medicaid, CNIC or Rocky Mountain HMO insurance card to a walk-in clinic or immunization appointment at the Mesa County Health Department. A parent or legal guardian will have to accompany a child to an immunization appointment and sign a consent form. Parents can call 248-6900 to make an appointment for another day if they can’t make it to the clinic Aug. 14 or 15 or schedule an appointment with their family physician. Parents can opt out of immunizations for religious, health or personal philosophical reasons. A parent must obtain an exemption form from a school nurse or health assistant, sign it and turn it into the school if they have an objection
to vaccination. In 2010-11, 4.5 percent of District 51 elementary school students opted out of immunizations, with the opt-out rate ranging from less than 1 percent of Dos Rios and Chipeta Elementary students to 9 percent of New Emerson students. Without an exemption form or proof of either vaccination or an appointment to get vaccinated, a student can be turned away from school in accordance with Colorado law, although McGee said District 51 has never had to resort to removing an unvaccinated child from class. Students are given at least 14 days from the time they show up at school to fill out an exemption form or schedule or get proper immunizations before they would be removed from classes in District 51. Parents can drop off immunization records starting this month at their child’s school or bring the forms to school registration. Schools will send a reminder to parents to get their children immunized if the children have not been immunized or allowed to opt out of immunization.
Diseases prevented by required vaccines n Diphtheria: A bacterial respiratory disease that causes a thick coating to form on the back of the throat and may lead to airway obstruction, coma, death. n Hepatitis B: A viral disease that can cause scarring, cancer or death or liver failure. n Measles: A viral respiratory disease that can cause rash, fever, coughing or a runny nose. Rare complications include death, encephalitis, ear infection and pneumonia. n Mumps: A viral disease that starts with a fever, headache, muscle aches, fatigue and loss of appetite, followed by swelling of the salivary glands. Complications include deafness and inflammation of the brain, breasts or ovaries. n Pertussis: A bacterial disease that begins like a cold but adds a severe cough within one to two weeks. Infants can have a pause in breathing and pneumonia may develop. n Polio: A viral infection that attacks
the nervous system and may have no symptoms or minor fever, fatigue, nausea, headache, neck or back stiffness and limb pain. Complications may include paralysis that can cause permanent disability or death. n Rubella: Also called German Measles, this viral disease causes fever and rash and may cause deafness, cataracts, heart defects, mental retardation, liver or spleen damage in a fetus if a pregnant woman contracts the virus. n Tetanus: A nervous system disease that can begin with lockjaw, neck or abdomen stiffness and difficulty swallowing and may lead to severe muscle spasms, seizure-like activity, severe autonomic nervous system disorders or death. n Varicella: Also called chickenpox, this viral disease causes red, itchy blisters and can cause birth defects in pregnant women. — Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

EMPLOYERS – You Have A Choice!
CLEVELAND — For the past three years, Taura Tate’s mornings have revolved around caring for a woman who suffers from the effects of a stroke and diabetes. She cooks her oatmeal for breakfast, helps with showers and makes sure she takes the right medicine. Without the help of a home health aide, the woman, who’s in her 70s, would be in a nursing home instead of living on her own. But Tate has her own struggles. Until a recent promotion, her pay amounted to what she could make at McDonald’s. She doesn’t get health or retirement benefits and has worked at five agencies in the Cleveland area, some simultaneously, to guarantee she’ll have enough clients. “If they go into the hospital or go on vacation, you don’t get paid,” she said. Demand for home health care workers is soaring as baby boomers — the 78 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964 — get older and states try to save money by moving people out of more costly nursing homes. But filling more than 1 million new home care positions over the next decade will be a challenge. Most home health aides are paid about the same as maids and manicurists and don’t get sick days or health insurance themselves. Many who are selfemployed must pay for their own gas for driving to appointments and cover their own medical bills if they’re hurt on the job. The U.S. Labor Department projects that home health and personal care aides will be among the fastest-growing jobs over the next decade, adding 1.3 million positions and increasing at a rate higher than any other occupation. If those jobs can’t be filled, many older Americans are likely to face living with relatives or in nursing homes, which will only cost families and taxpayers more money. Some aides say they have no choice but to say no when people call looking for help because they can’t afford to take on someone else. “It’s hard because I love helping people, but at the same time I’ve got three kids,” said Kimberly Ingram, a home health aide in Lancaster, S.C. “When you add up your miles, your gas money, you don’t make nothing.” Her part-time job delivering newspapers pays better when you factor in the time

Taura Tate, right, a home care aide since 1999, hands Crell Johnson, 76, cut watermelon at Johnson’s apartment in Euclid, Ohio. and travel some home care jobs need, she said. Nearly half of all home care workers live at or below the poverty level, and many receive government benefits such as food stamps, unions and advocacy groups say. The median pay a year ago was $9.70 per hour — 4 cents less than fastfood workers and short-order cooks, according to the most recent statistics from the Labor Department. Agencies that supply home health workers blame states and the federal government for failing to increase reimbursement rates for Medicaid and Medicare patients at a time when costs are going up. Home health services are an easy target for cuts because they’re not required by federal law, and legislators in states with big deficits say they have no choice but to cut Medicaid spending, the second-costliest item for states behind education. At the same time, some states, including Ohio, are changing how they coordinate medical care and trying to move some of the most expensive and hard-to-treat patients
into home and communitybased settings instead of nursing homes. The result, home care agencies say, is that there’s little room for them to make a profit. And that means they can go only so far to attract new workers. “We compete with McDonald’s, Wendy’s and the discount stores,” said Jennifer Witten, owner of Imani Home Health Co. in Cleveland. “You can’t afford to raise your salaries, yet you want to hire the best people.” Home care agencies say trying to fill jobs will become even more difficult in a few years if the economy improves and job options increase. “The real staffing challenge is 10 years away,” said David Tramontana, president of Home Care by Black Stone in Cincinnati. “If we can’t pay them more than they get at McDonald’s, we’re in big trouble.” The qualifications and training for home care aides varies. A high school diploma isn’t usually a requirement, and some states call for only on-the-job training, while others insist on more formal
instruction about basic nutrition and personal hygiene at community colleges or elder care programs. Home care agencies that are reimbursed by Medicare or Medicaid must hire aides who have passed a competency test or received state certification. Despite the relatively low pay, many aides say they like the flexible hours and find the work rewarding. Tate, a home care aide since 1999, doubts she could get by if it weren’t for her husband, a truck driver who also has health insurance. She could make more money at a nursing home or hospital but relishes the connections she makes in home care. “I get attached to the people,” said Tate, who made $8.50 an hour until she received a promotion and a $2 raise earlier this summer. “How could you not if you’re with them every day? Sometimes you’re the only person they see.” Retired hospital nurse and home health aide Judith Mezey-Kirby, born a few years

➤ Continued from page 8A ahead of the baby boom, said she worries about who will take care of boomers in the coming years. Home health care workers need not only better pay, she said, but also better training on how to take care of basic needs. She had good and bad experiences with aides who help her with the laundry and chores that require heavy lifting around her home in Fairview Park, a Cleveland suburb. “It needs attention bad,” said Mezey-Kirby, 73. “You just can’t take people off the streets.” Wittens’ company considered adding a 401(k) plan for its workers but decided it was too costly. Home aides she hires start at $8.50 per hour and can earn up to $10. Most work 30 to 40 hours a week, and all but a few have other part-time jobs, Witten said. Jareese Mitchell, a personal care attendant in Manchester, Conn., spends 30 hours a week with two quadriplegics, helping them eat, dress and bathe. He also goes to school and works three nights a week at a clothing store. “Everybody has a job outside; you pretty much have to,” said Mitchell, who until recently was receiving food stamps. He said he might look for different work if the pay doesn’t increase. That’s not unusual. The turnover rate among home health aides is estimated to be anywhere from 30 percent to 50 percent, sometimes higher. The revolving door is especially tough on those who depend on home aides for help throughout the day. “My mom gets nervous when she has brand-new people. There’s always a trust issue,”

Local autism support plan to be formulated By SENTINEL STAFF Mesa Developmental Services is hosting a community stakeholder meeting about autism on Thursday. The event is at capacity, so no more people will be allowed into the event, but the result of the meeting will impact Mesa County residents with autism, their families and education providers. The goal of “Enhancing Community Supports for Individuals on the Autism Spectrum” is to bring together representatives from the Autism Society of Colorado, University of Colorado Medical School and Audyssey, an MDS autism program. Stakeholders will discuss the Colorado Autism Commission Report and Strategic
Plan and current research on people with autism spectrum disorders, current local support for people on the autism spectrum and what added support would benefit the community. Attendees plan to develop collaborative community goals for supporting children and adults with autism in Mesa County. The Colorado Autism Commission created a report in 2009 to outline plans for addressing the growing number of Coloradans being diagnosed as people with autism spectrum disorders. The report includes a 10-year strategic plan that aims to promote, expand and coordinate services for people with autism.

SIKHS: Shooter discharged from Army in ’98 ➤ Continued from Page One
Denver woman recounts love for stepson
in psychological warfare before he was demoted and discharged more than a decade ago. A day after he killed six worshippers at the suburban Milwaukee temple, fragments of Page’s life emerged in public records and interviews. But his motive was still largely a mystery. So far, no hatefilled manifesto has emerged, nor any angry blog or ranting Facebook entries to explain the attack. Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards suggested Monday that investigators might never know for certain why the lone attacker targeted a temple full of strangers. “We have a lot of information to decipher, to put it all together before we can positively tell you what that motive is — if we can determine that,” Edwards said. Page, who was shot to death by police, joined the Army in 1992 and was discharged in 1998. He was described Monday by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a “frustrated neo-Nazi” who had long been active in the obscure underworld of white supremacist music. Page wrote frequently on white supremacist websites, describing himself as a member of the “Hammerskins Nation,” a skinhead group rooted in Texas that has offshoots in Australia and Canada, according to the SITE Monitoring Service, a Maryland-based private intelligence firm that searches the Internet for terrorist and other extremist activity. Outside Fayetteville, N.C., a brick ranch house Page bought in 2007 with help from a Veterans Affairs mortgage stood boarded up Monday with knee-high weeds in the yard. A notice taped to the front indicated the home was in foreclosure and had been sold to a bank in January.
The Army veteran authorities say killed six worshippers in a Wisconsin Sikh temple was “a precious little boy” as a child and showed no hint that he would grow up to be a musician with white supremacist leanings, his former stepmother said Monday in Denver. “He was a gentle, kind, loving child, little boy and teenager,” 67-year-old Laura Page said of the Wade Michael Page she knew. “I’m devastated. I loved him. He was a precious little boy and that’s what my mind keeps going back to.” Wade Page was 10 when Laura Page married his father, Jesse, she said. Jesse Page shared custody with Wade’s biological mother, who has since died, family members said. Laura Page and Jesse Page divorced in 2001, she said. According to records, Page lived in the Denver area periodically between 1990 and 2007. His last known address in Colorado was a modest, multistoried apartment building in Littleton. — AP In an April message, Page said: “Passive submission is indirect support to the oppressors. Stand up for yourself and live the 14 words,” a reference to a common white supremacists mantra. Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the law center, a nonprofit civil rights organization in Montgomery, Ala., said Page played in groups whose often sinister-sounding names seemed to “reflect what he went out and actually did.” The music talked about genocide against Jews and other minorities. In a 2010 interview, Page told a white supremacist website that he became active in white-power music in 2000, when he left his native Colorado and started the band End Apathy in 2005. The band’s MySpace page listed the group as based in Nashville, N.C.
WIRE REPORTS PASADENA, Calif. — NASA’s Curiosity rover on Monday transmitted a low-resolution video showing the last 2 1/2 minutes of its white-knuckle dive through the Mars atmosphere, giving Earthlings a sneak peek of a spacecraft landing on another world. As thumbnails of the video flashed on a big screen on Monday, scientists and engineers at the NASA Jet Propulsion let out “oohs” and “aahs.” The recording began with the protective heat shield falling away and ended with dust being kicked up as the rover was lowered by cables inside an ancient crater. NASA celebrated the precision landing of a rover on Mars and marveled over the mission’s flurry of photographs — grainy, black-and-white images of Martian gravel and a mountain at sunset. Curiosity, a roving laboratory the size of a compact car, landed right on target late Sunday night after an eight-month, 352-million-mile journey. It parked its six wheels about four miles from its ultimate science destination — Mount Sharp rising from the floor of Gale Crater near the equator. Extraordinary efforts were needed for the landing because the rover weighs one ton, and the thin Martian atmosphere offers little friction to slow a spacecraft down. Curiosity had to go from 13,000 mph to zero in seven minutes, unfurling a parachute, then firing rockets to brake. In a Hollywoodstyle finish, cables delicately lowered it to the ground at 2 mph. Scientists are now ready for a voyage across

the surface of an ancient Martian crater, seeking evidence that a planet other than Earth was hospitable for life. It will be a month or more before Earth-bound researchers can start Curiosity on its first test drives and longer still for scientists to deploy the 10 key instruments that the craft has carried from Earth. For now the rover is firmly settled on a pebbly patch of Martian ground near a towering mountain where lower slopes of water-carved rock could hold precious carbon sediments laid down billions of years ago.

Romney fundraising outpaces Obama’s By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — Can President Barack Obama raise the money he needs to hold onto the White House? Money wasn’t supposed to be a worry for the president’s campaign, which smashed fundraising records in 2008. But Mitt Romney’s team has hauled in more than Obama and his allies for a third straight month, raising the once-unthinkable question. While the race for voter support is tight, according to polls,
Romney’s robust fundraising and a crush of money from Republican-leaning political action committees have forced the president’s campaign to spend heavily through the summer. Highlighting the challenge for Obama, Romney on Monday reported a July fundraising haul of more than $101 million along with the Republican National Committee, compared with the $75 million that Obama’s campaign said it had brought in along with the Democratic National Committee. Obama officials say they ex-
pected Romney to outraise the president through the summer and have made contingency plans if the disparity continues. Part of that planning has involved heavy spending on ads through the spring and summer in an attempt to define Romney for voters before he has access to most of his general election funds. With the election still three months away, Obama and the DNC have spent more than $370 million since January of last year. In June, the campaign spent more than it brought in.

Obama opted out of the public funding system that year, which allowed him to raise and spend freely on ads wherever he chose. McCain accepted public money and the spending restrictions that came with it. Determined to avoid such an imbalance

Colorado Mesa begins new era with new coach By ALLEN GEMAEHLICH
A new era begins this week in the Colorado Mesa University football program. Among the RMAC coaches anyway, results aren’t expected to change right away. Colorado Mesa, under a new coach for the first time in 14 years, is picked to finish where it did last year in the RMAC preseason poll announced Monday. The Mavericks (4-7, 3-6 RMAC in 2011) are picked fifth. Colorado State-Pueblo, which went undefeated to win the RMAC last season, is picked first. The ThunderWolves re-
ceived nine of the 10 first-place votes. CSU-Pueblo coach John Wristen might have have picked his team, but couldn’t by RMAC rules. He voted Chadron State at the top. “A lot of times the preseason poll is based on the previous year,” CMU coach Russ Martin said. “Pueblo is definitely the team that should be on top. “They had great success and have a lot of returners. If you look at the recruiting class and some of the transfers, they’re going to be loaded again.” After the ThunderWolves, Martin said, it could be anybody. “Mines and Chadron are a
toss-up. Both of them have a lot of good players back. Both have great tradition. A lot of it is who stays healthy,” he said. Adams State University, which achieved university status this summer, is picked fourth. New Mexico Highlands and Western New Mexico are picked sixth. Fort Lewis is eighth, followed by Western State Colorado University and Black Hills (S.D.) State, which joined the RMAC this season. Black Hills replaces Nebraska-Kearney, which moved to the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association. Many of the Mesa football
players were upset over Joe Ramunno’s resignation after the season, but have accepted Martin, his staff and the changes since he was hired in January. “The biggest change we’ve had is the mentality the coaches bring,” Mesa senior safety Trent deBraga said. “They’re all about winning. I’d say we’ve made a 360-degree turnaround just from the preparation standpoint. I think our expectations are way higher. Anything less than winning will be a disappointment.” CMU had two seniors on the

GJ Rockies rebound with 6-5 win at Orem By ADAM SPOLANE
Special to The Daily Sentinel
OREM, Utah — Even though the second half of the Pioneer League season is barely a week old, the Grand Junction Rockies’ series in Orem is a key one. The Rockies entered Monday night’s game four games back of the Owlz for first place, and came away with a much-needed come-from-behind 6-5 win. The win improves the Rockies’ second-half record to 3-6, with a 7-5 season series edge against Orem. “This SEASON OVER is a real Colorado Rockies’ big win for us,” Todd Helton needs Rockies season-ending managsurgery. Page 2B er Tony Diaz said. “To come from behind and then hold on at the end is a great testament to the character of this ballclub.” Ryan Warner retired the first two batters in the bottom of the first with relative ease, but the next five Owlz reached, four of them on singles up the middle. Jonathan Walsh drove in the first run and Chevy Clarke the last two for a 3-0 lead. Orem added another two-out run in the third when Jonathan Walsh hit his sixth home run of the season, but the lead was wiped away in the fifth. Michael Ramirez and Juan Ciriaco reached base to open the inning. Ashley Graeter brought home Ramirez with a single and Ciriaco scored on a wild pitch to make it 4-2. Then, with Ben Waldrip ahead in the count, Orem manager Tom Kotchman elected to pull starter Jairo Diaz in favor of Yancarlos Santiago. Waldrip made him pay, hitting his ninth home run of the year to tie the game at 4-4. After the Rockies took the lead with two runs in the seventh, including a bases-loaded walk by Correlle Prime for the go-ahead run, Orem threatened to follow suit.
GJ Rockies are making strides
he thrill — and disappointment — of the firsthalf Pioneer League title chase is behind them, and now comes the second-half grind for the Grand Junction Rockies. From the opening series of the season, when the youngest club in the league showed flashes, but was oh, so inconsistent, to the club that won eight of the final 10 games of the first half, the Rockies are doing everything the front office hoped after moving the franchise from Casper, Wyo., to the Western Slope. Zach Wilson, the assistant director of player development for the Colorado Rockies, spent part of last week in Grand Junction checking the progress of the Rookie Rockies, and likes what he’s seeing. “We got so close there of making the playoffs and I give credit to our guys,” he said before Thursday’s game. “They did everything within their power to make that happen.

ANCHESTER, ENGLAND — THE U.S. WOMEN’S SOCCER TEAM IS BACK IN THE OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL MATCH AFTER A WILD COMEFROM-BEHIND 4-3 WIN OVER CANADA WITH A GOAL IN THE FINAL MINUTE OF EXTRA TIME. Now the Americans will be out to avenge one of the most gut-wrenching losses in the program’s history. Alex Morgan gave the U.S. its first lead of the night in the third minute of injury time Monday, completing the win over Canada in the Olympic semifinals at Old Trafford. Morgan’s 6-yard header, on a long cross from Heather O’Reilly, looped high into the net over goalkeeper Erin McLeod for the winning goal. Megan Rapinoe scored in the 54th and 70th minutes, and Abby Wambach in the 80th for the U.S. The Americans overcame three one-goal deficits, all due to a hat trick from Canada’s Christine Sinclair, who scored in the 22nd, 67th and 73rd minutes. In many ways the win was reminiscent of the landmark comeback victory against Brazil in last year’s World Cup. “Even when they scored their third goal, there was something

Texas Little League teams too much for Grand Junction in Southwest Regional Tournament By SENTINEL STAFF In the end, those Texas teams once again proved to be the stumbling block for Grand Junction Little League baseball teams. Monument’s baseball team lost to both teams from the Lone Star State in pool play in the Southwest Regional tournament, and was eliminated Monday after a 6-1 loss to Texas East,
from Lufkin. Monument finished 1-2 in pool play. Both Texas teams advance to the semifinals, along with Lake Charles, La., and Petroglyph Little League from New Mexico. The regional champion qualifies to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa. “We felt real confident today,” Monument manager Sean Kreidler said. “It was kind of a shocker to me. I thought we’d be
able to hit that kid. We were outhitting them 3-1 but the score was reversed; they were up 3-1. “They’re year-round baseball players and that makes a difference. Their base running was a little crisper, they were a little more aggressive.” Jax Nourse struck out eight in 5 1/3 innings, allowing only one hit. Three Monument pitchers combined to allow four hits, but walked six.
“They’ve seen pitchers like Jax all year long,” Kreidler said. “Jax had them off-kilter a little bit but they weren’t mesmerized by him. “Jax is a creature in Colorado, teams are scared to death of him. They were not intimidated by him. He pitched well and pitched hard, but they stayed with it and stuck their bats out and got some hits.” Texas East scored one run in the second, but Monument
answered in the bottom of the third when Shawn Garcia led off with a triple and scored on Nourse’s groundout to second. It was 3-1 heading into the sixth, when Texas East came up with three runs. Canon Kreidler doubled with one out in the bottom of the sixth, but Texas East pitcher Ethan Jacobs got Zack Owens to fly out to left and then struck out Zach Rush to end Monument’s season.
Jacobs allowed four hits and struck out nine, walking only one, to win his first game of the regional. He threw 86 pitches, 65 for strikes. “We knew they didn’t have anybody after him,” Kreidler said. “We’d take pitches and he threw strikes. That was kind of how it went for us, we never really got timely hits. It’s like

Helton’s poorest season over
DENVER — Todd Helton’s worst season of his career is over. The Colorado Rockies said their first baseman and clubhouse leader will undergo arthroscopic surgery Friday to repair a torn labrum in his right hip. “I think the world of this man,” manager Jim Tracy said Monday before the start of a three-game series in Los Angeles. “I’ve been privileged over the course of 11 years to have managed some very special people. This guy is arguably as good a competitor as I’ve ever been around.” The Rockies placed Helton on the 15-day

disabled list and reinstated infielder Chris Nelson from the 15-day DL. Nelson, who missed 17 games because of an irregular heartbeat, was in the starting line at second base and batting seventh. “It’s sad, man,” Nelson said. “The guy brings a lot of experience, with the batting titles and the Gold Gloves. If you have any kind of questions, you just stop over at his locker and ask him, and he’ll give you his honest opinion. That’s one of the great things about him. “I didn’t know he was having surgery until yesterday. He’s hurting pretty bad, so I’m glad he’s having the surgery so that he can get back with us next year,” he said.

Tigers’ ace dominant in win over Yankees By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DETROIT — Justin Verlander matched a career high with 14 strikeouts and got home-run support from Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera, leading the Detroit Tigers over the New York Yankees 7-2 Monday night. Verlander (12-7) threw 132 pitches, his most in a regular-season game, and sent the Tigers to their fifth straight win. Verlander gave up two unearned runs after his fielding error extended the fifth inning. Ivan Nova (10-6) was roughed up for seven runs and 11 hits — matching a career high — in 5 1-3 innings. Twins 14, Indians 3: Justin Morneau homered twice and drove in four runs, Joe Mauer had three RBIs and Ryan Doumit hit a three-run homer and the Twins handed the Indians’ their 10th straight loss. Orioles 3, Mariners 1: Chris Tillman took a three-hit shutout into the eighth inning to extend a run of successful starts by Baltimore pitchers, and the Orioles beat Jason Vargas and the Mariners. Nick Markakis homered and Mark Reynolds had three hits and an RBI for the Orioles, who have won six of eight to improve to 58-51. White Sox 4, Royals 2: Paul Konerko and Gordon Beckham homered late, Chris Sale pitched eight solid innings and the White Sox beat Kansas City. Red Sox 9, Rangers 2: Dustin Pedroia had three of Boston’s eight doubles, Aaron Cook pitched seven solid innings and the Red Sox beat the Rangers. Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford each doubled twice and Adrian Gonzalez once as the Red Sox increased their major league high to 248 doubles. Crawford and Gonzalez drove in three runs each. Angels 4 Athletics 0: Jered Weaver pitched a four-hitter for his major-league leading 15th victory, and the Los Angeles Angels beat Oakland 4-0 on Monday night to overtake the final spot in the crowded AL wild card standings. Weaver (15-1) struck out nine, walked none and faced the minimum through 4 1-3 innings. The Angels ace has won a careerbest 10 straight starts, matching Chuck
Finley’s franchise record set in 1997.
NATIONAL LEAGUE Rockies 2, Dodgers 0: Adam Ottavino gave up one hit in three innings of relief, a single that was the result of a reversed call, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-0 Monday night. Ottavino (3-1) took over in the fifth inning for a tiring Drew Pomeranz. Carlos Gonzalez had a sacrifice fly in the first inning and rookie Jordan Pacheco added an RBI single in the third for the Rockies, who prevented the Dodgers from overtaking NL West-leading San Francisco following the Giants’ loss at St. Louis. Rockies manager Jim Tracy was ejected by third base umpire and crew chief Mike Everitt in the bottom of the seventh when he slammed his cap to the ground following the reversal of a call on a sinking liner by Shane Victorino first ruled an out. TV replays showed center fielder Dexter Fowler trapped the ball. Pirates 4, Diamondbacks 0: Erik Bedard allowed two hits over seven innings Monday night and the Pittsburgh Pirates opened a season-long 11-game homestand with a 4-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Nationals 5, Astros 4, 11 innings: Roger Bernadina scored when Houston made two errors on the same play in the 11th inning and the Washington Nationals picked up their third straight win, 5-4 over the Astros on Monday night. Padres 2, Cubs 0: Eric Stults and four relievers combined on a five-hitter, leading the San Diego Padres to a 2-0 win over the slumping Chicago Cubs on Monday night. Brewers 6, Reds 3: Yovani Gallardo pitched seven innings, and Martin Maldonado homered and drove in three runs to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat Cincinnati. Cardinals 8, Giants 2: Jake Westbrook threw six solid innings and Carlos Beltran hit his 26th home run as the St. Louis Cardinals beat Matt Cain and the Giants. Braves 6, Phillies 1: Ben Sheets pitched into the eighth inning and Jason Heyward homered to lead the streaking Atlanta Braves over Philadelphia.

SCOREBOARD Fan hit by lightning goes from critical to stable By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONG POND, Pa. — The NASCAR fan killed by a lightning strike at a track in northeastern Pennsylvania was a 41-year-old man from a nearby county, authorities said Monday. Brian Zimmerman, of Moosic, Pa., died as he stood near his car in the parking lot of Pocono Raceway, according to the Monroe County coroner. A woman who answered the phone at Zimmerman’s home declined comment. Nine other people were injured during Sunday’s violent storm, though it wasn’t immediately clear how many might have been struck by lightning. One who had been listed Sunday
night in critical condition was upgraded to stable. The crowd of about 85,000 was advised over public address systems and through social media to take cover Sunday afternoon when lightning and heavy rain hit the track near the end of the race. But some fans posted on the raceway’s Facebook page that they never heard the weatherrelated announcements. NASCAR spokesman Dave Higdon said Monday that officials are reviewing how the track carried out its emergency procedures. He cautioned against rushing to judgment until all the facts are known. “Anytime something like this happens, we make sure we look at it again and see if there’s any-

thing we should have done different,” Higdon said. “It’s never a good day for us when someone passes and people are hurt.” Pocono Raceway president and CEO Brandon Igdalsky expressed sorrow at a news conference Monday afternoon at the track, where a large U.S. flag flew at half-staff. “Fans are like family to us,” Igdalsky said, noting that Zimmerman had been coming to races for several years with his friends. He added that he planned to contact Zimmerman’s family and visit other victims. Pocono officials are going through log books to establish a timeline for the storm, weather warnings and final laps of the shortened race, Igdalsky said.

One bolt hit the grandstand parking area around 5 p.m. Sunday, killing Zimmerman and injuring eight others, Igdalsky said. A second possible strike came around 6:35 p.m., sending a ninth person to the hospital with minor injuries, he said. Brian Mattson of Greentown, Pa., said he and friend Tom Deacher had just gotten into their truck to leave the track when they saw the first bolt hit about two car rows in front of them. Mattson said sparks flew “like a Roman candle” after the lightning hit a tailgating canopy next to a car. “When the tent collapsed, I knew it wasn’t right,” said Deacher, of Mayfield, Pa. They ran over and found two
men on the ground. Deacher said he and others tried to administer CPR to the men until paramedics arrived. They don’t know if one of the men was Zimmerman. Communicating incoming weather is often a challenge for officials at tracks throughout the country. Most such facilities — especially the 2.5-mile Pocono Raceway — are massive, with fans spread among grandstand seating and a spacious infield where fans camp and tailgate. NASCAR stays in contact with track officials when weather may affect a race, but it’s the responsibility of track officials to communicate with race fans about advisories or severe storms approaching.

with a race are typically made minute-by-minute, although there have been instances the last several years when NASCAR worked with track officials in advance of incoming weather in the interest of fan safety. The decision to postpone a 2008 race at Richmond was made a day before the scheduled start because Tropical Storm Hanna was moving toward Virginia. In 2010, all track activity at Talladega Superspeedway was canceled because of extended periods of severe weather. Track officials made the decision based on advice from the Talladega County Emergency Management Agency and the National Weather Service, which warned of potential tornadoes.

Broncos sign LB Brooking
U.S. ROLLS OVER ARGENTINA 126-97
Durant lights it up in second half to advance
➤ Continued from page 1B
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
ENGLEWOOD — The last time linebacker Keith Brooking got up close to John Elway, the Denver Broncos were celebrating their Super Bowl win over his Atlanta Falcons for their second straight title. “That’s the first thing I mentioned to him,” Brooking said Monday after the 15th-year veteran signed with the Broncos. “I was like, ‘By the way, I haven’t forgotten ‘98.’ ” The 36-year-old Brooking was a wide-eyed rookie back then. He’s been to five Pro Bowls since but hasn’t gotten back to the Super Bowl. “So, that’s even more of a reason to continue to play and strive to get there,” Brooking said. “That’s what this is all about at this point. Not a lot of fond memories from that evening in Miami, for sure — or the night before.” That’s when safety Eugene Robinson was arrested for soliciting a prostitute, sending the Falcons for a loop just hours before the biggest game of their lives. Elway led Denver to a 34-19 win in the last game of his Hall of Fame career. They won just one playoff game in the next dozen years before he returned in a front office role last year. Brooking went on to play another decade in Atlanta before a three-year stint in Dallas. He has played in all 16 regular-season games for 11 consecutive years, starting all of them in nine of those seasons. But he started just three games last year, when he was supplanted by Sean Lee. Brooking recorded 34 tackles in 2011, his lowest total since 21 in his rookie season, but that didn’t scare off the Broncos.
LONDON — Kevin Durant shot the U.S. men’s Olympic basketball team out of trouble, and right into the top seed in their group. Durant scored 17 of his 28 points during the Americans’ explosive 42-point third quarter, turning a one-point game into a blowout that sent the U.S. soaring into the quarterfinals with a 126-97 victory over Argentina on Monday night. The NBA scoring champion matched the Argentines’ point total in the period, going 5-of-6 from 3-point range, the last one from well beyond 25 feet. The Americans didn’t stop shooting and scoring until Carmelo Anthony made a 3-pointer in the final second of the quarter while taking what he and the U.S. bench right behind him felt was a cheap shot from Argentina’s Facundo Campazzo, setting off an exchange of words and technical fouls. “You kind of want to send a message a little bit.,” Kobe Bryant said. “This was the second game in a row that this team has played us close. We didn’t want to give them confidence.” The Americans (5-0) will play Australia (3-2) in a quarterfinal game Wednesday. LeBron James added 18 points, getting the Americans’ first seven of the third quarter before Durant took over. Chris Paul finished with 17. Two nights after surviving their first real test in a 9994 victory over Lithuania, it seemed the Americans might be headed for another tight finish. Argentina shot 56 percent in the first half and the U.S. led just 60-59. Minutes later, it was effectively over. Durant’s 3-pointer after James’ surge gave the U.S. 10 points in 2:10 of the second half, and he made back-to-back 3s midway through the period to make it 85-68. He nailed consecutive 3s again later in the quarter, the latter from beyond the hash line, a distance that most players would never consider pulling up from. “I really didn’t pay attention to where the line was,” Durant
LITTLE: OM Girls go 0-2 in Santa Fe ➤ Continued from page 1B they say, good pitching beats good hitting and that was the case this week. But I’m proud of them, we gave it our best.”
JUNIOR SOFTBALL The Orchard Mesa girls went 0-2 in the Southwest Regional in Santa Fe, N.M. In its first game, Orchard Mesa, a team comprised of girls from Grand Junction and Delta, led through four innings, but a few mental errors cost them in a 24-9 loss to Texas East, from Bridge City, Texas. In an elimination game Sunday against Vidalia, La., Orchard Mesa led 1-0 until the top of the fourth when the Louisiana state champion put up six runs on the way to an 11-1 victory.
18U SOFTBALL The Grand Valley Crush 18-under fastpitch team won its pool in the USSSA Fastpitch World Series in Chino, Calif., then went 1-2 in bracket play of the 38-team tournament. The Crush went 2-0-1 in pool play, then defeated the Cal Ladyhawks 1-0 in the opening round of bracket play. A 7-5 loss to Pure Fastpitch from Huntington Beach, Calif., dropped the Crush into the consolation bracket, where it lost to eventual consolation champion California Thunder 14-0. The Crush is comprised of players from five high schools throughout the Grand Valley.

The United States’ Carmelo Anthony and Argentina’s Luis Scola battle for a loose ball in the U.S.’s win. said. “When I caught that ball I was going to shoot it.” Durant, who holds the U.S. scoring record with 38 points in the 2010 world championship, might have threatened that if not for the lopsided score. He checked out for good about a minute into the fourth quarter. Manu Ginobili scored 16 points for Argentina (32), which would have won Group A via tiebreaker if it had blown out the U.S. Instead, it finished third and will face Brazil in the quarterfinals.
WATER POLO Norbert Hosnyanszky scored three times and defending champion Hungary beat the U.S. 11-6 to close out the preliminary stage of the men’s tournament. The Americans have dropped two straight and will face undefeated Croatia in the quarterfinals on Wednesday. Hungary plays Italy, Spain takes on Montenegro and Australia faces Serbia in the other quarters.
CYCLING Jason Kenny won the sprint for Britain’s fifth gold medal out of a possible seven in track cycling. Kenny earned his first win against three-time world champion Gregory Bauge of France. The 24-year-old from Bolton, outside Manchester,
made good on the British team’s decision to enter him in the event instead of defending champion Chris Hoy. Bauge failed in his bid to become the first Frenchman to win the Olympic sprint title in 40 years. Shane Perkins of Australia claimed the bronze medal.
SAILING Tom Slingsby of Australia won the men’s Laser class by match-racing closest competitor Pavlos Kontides to the back of the fleet. Kontides took the silver, the first-ever Olympic medal for Cyprus, the small island nation that started taking part in the games in Moscow in 1980. A few hours later, as Slingsby was about to receive his gold medal in a harbor-side ceremony, the Aussie crew of Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen came ashore with an unassailable lead in the 49er skiff class. To collect their medals, Outteridge and Jensen need to make a “genuine effort” to start, sail the course and finish in the medals race Wednesday. In the women’s Laser Radial, Xu Lijia of China won the gold despite having to do a penalty turn on the first downwind leg for rocking the boat. Marit Bouwmeester of the
Netherlands took silver, and Belgium’s Evi Van Acker was third.
DIVING Ilya Zakharov of Russia led the men’s 3-meter springboard preliminaries, with He Chong of China close behind in second during a competition marked by pratfalls. Zakharov totaled 507.65 points during the six rounds. He, who was ninth after his first dive, totaled 500.90 while opening defense of his Olympic title. Troy Dumais of the U.S. was third at 486.60 after rallying from sixth in the fourth round. Two divers scored all zeros, while two others got low scores for badly botching their dives.
SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING Natalia Ishchenko and Svetlana Romashina head into the duet final as top qualifiers after the preliminary free routine. Performing to music that included the theme from Tim Burton’s “Sleepy Hollow,” the Russians added to their leading marks in the preliminary technical to easily claim the top spot in 196.800. China’s Huang Xuechen and Liu Ou were next at 192.810, while Spain’s Ona Carbonell and Andrea Fuentes were third at 192.590. The top 12 teams advanced to Tuesday’s final.
SOCCER: Americans dominated possession in the early minutes ➤ Continued from page 1B the title match in every Summer Games since women’s soccer was introduced in Atlanta in 1996, winning the gold in 1996, 2004 and 2008 and the silver in 2000. The Americans advanced by continuing its dominance of the neighbor to the north, extending its unbeaten streak against Canada to 27 games (23-0-4). The Americans lead the alltime series 44-3-5, the last loss coming at the Algarve Cup in 2001. But it wasn’t easy. Sinclair was an imposing force, scoring her 141st, 142nd and 143rd
goals in international play. She’s now even with Wambach for No. 2 on the all-time list, both chasing Mia Hamm’s world record of 158. Canada coach John Herdman said before the game that the run of futility against the Americans was on the minds of his players, and he addressed it with them in the run-up to the match. He also injected some pregame intrigue by accusing the Americans of using “highly illegal,” overly physical tactics on free kicks and corner kicks. Certainly, his team gave one of its most spirited efforts on the biggest stage ever for a game between the neighbor-
ing rivals, scoring the most goals the U.S. has allowed since a 5-4 win by the Americans over Australia in May 2008. The game included a pair of U.S. goals resulting from moments rarely seen in soccer, including a corner kick that curled in for a goal and a goalkeeper whistled for holding the ball too long. Canada coach John Herdman felt the goalkeeper call was a miscarriage of justice, and he also felt referee Christiana Pedersen of Norway missed a hand ball in the penalty in front of the U.S. goal. The Americans dominated possession in the early min-
utes, but then the U.S. defense did the unexplainable — it lost track of one of the top goalscorers of all time. Marie-Eve Nault played a ball ahead to Melissa Tancredi, who tapped a pass over to Sinclair. Sinclair then slalomed through the penalty area, maneuvering around defender Kelley O’Hara to beat goalkeeper Hope Solo with simple right-footer from 10 yards. It was the first goal allowed by the U.S. in more the 360 minutes, since a pair of early scores by France in the Olympic opener two weeks ago. The U.S. also trailed at halftime for the first time in this tournament.
GJ: Dahl was 1 for 4, extending his hit streak to 19 games ➤ Continued from page 1B for the second out of the inning, then Rockies manager turned to Raul Fernandez. He got Michael Snyder to fly out to right field on the first pitch to preserve Grand Junctino’s 6-5 lead. Warner didn’t get a decision, allowing four runs on seven hits in three innings. Alving Mejias
ARNOLD: O’Dowd to be more involved
picked up his third win, allowing one run in 3 2/3 innings out of the bullpen. Fernandez retired all four batters he faced, and Scott Oberg picked up his ninth save of the season. “Mejias was the key to the game,” Diaz said. “He kept us in it, and then he did a good job of keeping them off the scoreboard after we tied the game, so we were able to keep momen-
tum.” David Dahl was 1 for 4, extending his hit streak to 19 games, and now has the longest current hit streak in the league after Seth Mejias-Brean’s 22game streak came to an end. Lefty Jayson Aquino (1-0) makes his second start for the Rockies tonight. Aquino beat the Owlz last week. Rockies notes: Right field-
er Julian Yan is the Pioneer League offensive player of the week. Yan went 10 for 31 with two doubles, six home runs, 14 RBI and scored eight runs in the past seven games. He now has 10 home runs, which leads the league, and is fifth in the league with 36 RBI. He’s the third GJ Rockies player to be honored, following Ryan Garvey and Ben Waldrip.
out for you. “The fact that the boys fought, they fought as a group and played as a team and they put themselves in a position to make a playoff run. I know they’re going to do the same thing in the second half.” Wilson covered several topics in our conversation, ranging from that first-half run to the construction of the GJ Rockies roster to the recent changes in Colorado’s front office. The Grand Junction club has eight of the organization’s top 11 picks from this June’s draft, including the top four. “For a lot of guys, this was the right place for them in terms of their development,” he said. “They’re young and we don’t have a team in Arizona. It’s a Rookie league, but it’s an Advanced Rookie league, where you see a lot of college-aged players. “When we take those high school kids, especially early in the draft, this is the best place for them to have their first exposure in professional baseball.” Three of the first four picks, David Dahl, Max White and Ryan Warner, just graduated from high school. As for the balance between developing individual players and a winning team, Wilson believes they go hand-in-hand. “The fine line in the development game, you want to give guys a chance to win as a team, be able to teach them how to win together and play for each other, and at the same time developing each individual player,” he said. “Without the ability of each individual player to get to their potential, they aren’t going to be a good big-leaguer. At the same time, if they don’t have the ability to be a winning player and fight tooth and nail for their teammates, they’re not going to be a good big-league player.” On newly acquired pitcher Jayson Aquino, who tore up the Dominican Summer League and was impressive in his Pioneer League debut: “Jayson has a very special arm, as so many of these kids do,” Wilson said. “There were things to take into consideration besides (if) he’s ready to compete here. He has to be ready from a cultural standpoint, a maturity standpoint, from a comfort level standpoint for him.” Although players such as Dahl and Eddie Butler, the top two picks in this year’s draft, are turning heads, Wilson said progress is being made throughout the club. “Honestly, up and down the roster, everybody has made progress. Sometimes that does not show up on the stat sheet. At this level, even bad games, bad performances, everyone is OK with that. We don’t have expectations,” Wilson said. “So many of them have done what we’ve asked them to do on a day-in, day-out basis, and for them to do that is all we can ask right now.” General Manager Dan O’Dowd will be more involved with the minor league clubs and Bill Geivett becoming the senior vice president for Major League operations. “Are things going to be a whole lot different? Some of it is yet to be seen, but in terms of a lot of people’s daily responsibilities, no,” Wilson said. “In terms of other people’s involvement in other areas, sure. But all we’re doing is trying to put people in the right place and our organization in the right place to have success. “We are doing things a little bit differently, but sometimes different is good, and a lot of good things can come out of change.”
NEW ERA: The Mavericks open the season Aug. 30 at Humboldt State (Calif.) University ➤ Continued from page 1B preseason all-conference team, offensive lineman Trevor Stapp and defensive lineman Domonique Lewis. CSU-Pueblo quarterback Ross Dausin is the preseason offensive player of the year, with Highlands linebacker Jordan Campbell the defensive player of the year and Colorado Mines punter Taylor Accardi the spe-
cial teams player of the year. The Mavericks will have to practice and play more consistently and with a higher level of intensity, Martin said, to get out of the middle of the pack, where Mesa has resided the past four seasons. “It will be a lot with developing consistency and maintaining a level of intensity because it is different,” Martin said. That will start with the ever-
changing quarterback position, The Mavericks had five different quarterbacks last season. “The first eight practices we’ll get the four quarterbacks some reps,” Martin said. “After that, we’ll start to narrow it down. “At the same time, I’m not against playing two quarterbacks. When I was at Baylor University back in 1985, we played two whole offensive units. In each one of them we
had three running backs and three receivers.” Junior Jason Haferman, sophomore Chris Henderson and redshirt freshman Deke Cisco return. Michael Mankoff, who would’ve been a senior, graduated early. Steven Romero opted to not return this fall, Martin said. Transfer Austen Fales (Central Connecticut State) will compete for the starting job.
Mesa players report Wednesday and begin practice Thursday morning. The Mavericks open the season Aug. 30 at Humboldt State (Calif.) University. By then, Martin hopes some changes will have starting taking place. One that has is a new helmet logo, featuring the university’s new Maverick head instead of the CMU lettering. Although some players, in-
cluding Trevor Stapp and Jake Edmiston, admitted they liked the previous Maverick head better, they’re embracing the change. “I’m probably not the one to ask,” said Edmiston of the new logo. “It’s a new identity. Change is good.” “I’m a fan of the old logo,” Stapp said. “It’s a new team and a new start.”

Fun By The Numbers Like puzzles? Then you’ll love sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your sudoku savvy to the test! Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
