13 percent rise in home values Higher property taxes on the way? Property value increases Area increases Basalt/El Jebel Eagle Gypsum Avon Edwards

40 percent 25 percent 17.5 percent 14.5 percent 10 percent

Countywide average Single family home Condominium

13 percent 13.5 percent

Property values are based on the 18 months between Jan. 1, 2007 and June 20, 2008. The time period is mandated by Colorado state law. Appeals must be filed with the Eagle County Assessor’s Office in person, in writing or by e-mail before May 29. They cannot be filed over the phone, although the Assessor’s staff will answer questions by phone. Go to www. eaglecounty.us or call 970-328-8640.

By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer The county assessor’s office last Friday mailed property value notices, and the average single family home jumped 13 percent – condominiums 13.5 percent. By Tuesday, the phones were ringing off the hook with people asking how Assessor Mark Chapin’s staff came to those conclusions, which may translate to higher property taxes. Most people were civil, said Chapin, although almost all wanted to be walked through the process. Eagle saw the biggest jump in the Vail Valley, 25 percent. But Roaring Fork Valley residents really got whacked with an average increase of 40 percent in Basalt and El Jebel. The Garfield County stretch between Carbondale and Glenwood Springs saw an average 65 percent increase, Chapin said. The schedule for valuing property is set by the state legislature. This time around it ran from Jan. 1, 2007 to June 30, 2008. That’s right in the middle of the region’s real estate boom, which is the law, says Chapin. “We’re stuck with that schedule,� he said. If you get your appeal set in motion by the end of May, the staff will take a look at it by the end of June and let you know what they decide. If you don’t like, you can appeal it to the county commissioners. If you don’t like their decision, you can take it to binding arbitration or District Court. State law requires county assessor’s offices to reassess property every two years. Because real estate [See PROPERTY TAX INCREASE? page 12]

Beaver Creek a candidate for 2015 World Ski Championships Resorts in Switzerland, Italy also in running By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer The third time could be a charm for the Birds of Prey race course to host the 2015 World Alpine Ski Championships. The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association has chosen Beaver Creek/Vail as its candidate for the championships. Ski resorts in St. Mortiz, Switzerland and Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, are other top contenders for the races. The Vail Valley played host to both the 1989 and the 1999 World Championships. The annual Birds of Pray men’s World Cup event is one of the most popular on the global circuit each season. “We have a long-standing relationship with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association through hosting 20 years of World Cup events,� said John Dakin, a Vail Valley Foundation spokesman. “I think they feel very comfortable with us not only representing the ski team and USSA, but the United States in this effort.�

The phones in the Eagle County Assessor’s office have been lighting up since property valuations hit local mailboxes. Assessor Mark Chapin and Assessment Specialist Elaine Wolf, and the rest of the Assessor’s staff have been busy keeping up with appeals. Randy Wyrick photo.

Boot issue getting costly

Thanks for stopping by our booth at the Home Show

Homeowner groups say they’ve already dropped $10,000 on attorney fees; and the tally continues

Probably $20,000 has been spent so far on legal issues surrounding Avon’s new car booting ordinance, says the Avon Sunridge HOA prez, and nothing has been decided yet. Homeowner groups have spent an estimated $10,000 in attorney fees related to the booting issue, said Steve Lay, president of the Sunridge at Avon Homeowners Association. He suggested $20,000 in total may have been spent by adding the cost of a private attorney and the estimated cost of the work of Town Attorney Eric Heil to write a new ordinance. “A lot of people are angry about this ordinance,” Lay said. “We’re all involved because the town decided to be in the business of having an ordinance on booting.” Residents, the police chief and the town attorney met Tuesday to talk about the new boot ordinance expected to go before Avon’s town council on May 26. State laws do not specifically address whether car boots are legal or not. Drivers have complained While the meeting was collegial, booting in Avon has been controversial for the past year or so, after Avon company AAA Booting started operating. Several drivers have complained about the booting company, according to Police Chief Brian Kozak. Many property managers have publicly applauded. “From the town’s standpoint, we don’t want a bunch of ruffians out there putting boots on cars and charging

drivers $1,000 each to take them off,” Heil said. Kozak pointed out that other states have seen corrupt booting practices, where illegal booting companies cruise around and take drivers’ money without there being any record or due process. On the other side of the coin is Aspen, which also has a private booting company, but has decided not to get involved in regulating it, Lay said. Vail also has a variety of private parking measures in condo parking lots, mostly car tows. Bog down courts? AAA Booting operates under rules it has made with Avon homeowner groups for their private parking lots, said Nick Antuna, the booting company’s co-owner. “It’s not just that we have boots, and we’re going to hunt people down,” Antuna said. “We have permission from the homeowner associations.” West Vail Shell gas station, which also does towing, does not want any new law to be drafted to govern booting, said Darin Tucholke, a co-owner. “I think it will bog down the courts and bog down the town to have this,” Tucholke said. Avon’s interest is to “take everyone’s needs into consideration and allow everyone to operate reasonably,” Heil said. If the new law is approved by Avon town council members, booting companies may pay $150 to register with the town. They may not be allowed to charge more than 75 percent of the maximum rate allowed by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission. And drivers will have a right to a hearing to protest the car boot.

Timber Ridge has a builder Moms, Dads & Grads Regional teams passed over for Texas developer By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer A Texas developer with military building experience has the nod to build 619 new beds at the Timber Ridge Village apartment complex near Vail’s Sandstone neighborhood in the next two years or so. Town council members on Tuesday chose Timber Ridge LLC, from El Paso, Texas, a team that proposed federal Housing and Urban

Development funding and square buildings with open interior courtyards on the five-acre site along the North Frontage Road. Other finalist teams were passed over that included Fritzlen Pierce Architects of Vail, and VaG Architects of Avon. Council members directed Town Manager Stan Zemler to spend two more months to come up with a final plan. “We will be there when the wheels come off of this,” said Bill Pierce, of Fritzlen Pierce, after hearing the decision. The town wanted to make sure it retained ownership of the property, which is half of the 10-acre Timber Ridge site, and that it eliminated $11 million in current public debt

there, said Andy Daly, a Vail town councilman. “I’m very pleased with the progress we’ve made,” Daly said. Housing is a top priority for the council, and it’s important to get the approval process moving, said Margaret Rogers, a Vail town councilwoman. The town had asked developers to submit plans to build apartments for at least 600 people on half of the 10-acre site. Based on previous negotiations, prices per renter could range from $380 to $575 or more. Vail Resorts did not bid on the project. It is the biggest leaseholder at the current Timber Ridge, which has about 200 units and is owned by the town.

Times Square-style ads ‘lipstick on a pig’? Vail council members open to posters on buildings idea By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer At least one larger-than-life, building-sized poster of dancers may greet visitors to Vail this summer, if things go the way the Vail Valley Foundation would like them to. The non-profit group got preliminary approval from Vail’s town council on Tuesday to put up the banners for a temporary trial period, since the town’s sign code does not allow them. Foundation employees are expected to come back with more specifics before getting final approval The banners may be plastered on the sides of buildings that are still under construction, including the new Four Seasons Resort and the Solaris condo and retail project, both in the center of town, and the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Lionshead. “It would put lipstick on the pig, if you will, but it veers away from the character of the community,” said

Rachel Friede, a Vail town planner. “We’re trying to keep a unique, small, ski-town feel, and this is a very urban sign.” The town’s planning commission previously turned down the request, and at least two town residents felt the same way Tuesday night. “This is not Times Square, and that’s what it feels like,” said Bob Armour, a former Vail mayor. “I don’t think we should tolerate something that takes up the side of a building. That’s appalling.” But council members seemed to be more open to the signage, pointing out that it could be a great marketing tool in the current tough economic climate. “It will remind people driving down I-70 that this is a vibrant town with a lot going on,” said Margaret Rogers, a town councilwoman. “Certainly, it’s not in keeping with the character of a small alpine village, but with Solaris, the Four Seasons and the Ritz Carlton, Vail is developing a new character, and I think it’s a good character.” The foundation runs many of the town’s biggest events -- summer and winter -- including the dance festival and two free outdoor concert series, among others.

Remembering Jack Kemp . . . I just wanted to share some thoughts and facts little known about Jack Kemp and the role he played in so many people’s lives. I have just returned from a short trip to the desert outside of Moab and hear the news of Jack Kemp’s death. While not shocked, it has made me go back to when I first met Jack in the ‘60s. I grew up in the Town of Orchard Park N.Y., now the Home of the Bills. Back then we would ride the bus into Buffalo to War Memorial Stadium and watch a guy named OJ run and the QB was Jack Kemp. Jack was from the town of Hamburg and played golf at the Orchard Park Country Club. Quite often with my dad, Tom, and I was honored to caddy for Jack and my dad. When I entered the Marine Corps and graduated from boot camp I received a personal letter thanking me for my commitment to our country. Upon returning from my tours in Vietnam, I learned that Jack was now a congressman representing N.Y. I remember thinking I know that guy he deserves to be leading our country. I followed his career, and when I moved to Vail in ‘77, it was not much later that our paths crossed again. Jack loved Beaver Creek and he always made time to hold a business breakfast in those early days. I never missed one. I reintroduced myself and thanked him for the letter and all he had done. He remembered those days of golf.

He was an avid golfer and I learned that he was a man of deep integrity and solid values. I also learned he was a genuinely nice guy. Most of all I saw that he cared about others and his community. When he was elected to Congress he displayed a true belief of doing what was right not just the way of the party. Then last year, while leading Marine Veterans for McCain, in Eagle County, I worked with Jack and several other great people to raise money for John McCain’s campaign. We met several times over the next several months and he always took the time to stop say hello and answer my naïve questions about how or what could a regular guy like me do to help better our country. His answer was always the same. Stick to your values. Don’t give in to what others will tell you. If we as Americans can do this then we will remain strong. That night leaving Ali Hassan’s home, having heard Jack speak for what would be my last time, I remember feeling so honored to have had him in my life and that he had truly touched the lives of so many others. Jack Kemp was a true American hero to me and others. I will always treasure the Bills Games and golf with him and my dad. I will treasure his memory most of all because Jack Kemp stayed true to his beliefs.

My best friend’s wedding . . . Pals band together to put on magnificent reception By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Arrowhead resident Cindy Engle and her friend Beth Springer have known each other for 35 years — they grew up together in Dallas. So when Springer got engaged to David Fryman, Engle sprang into action to help. Springer just put herself through nursing school, so she didn’t have much money for a big wedding, Engle said. “My sweet girlfriend was getting married. I said, ‘Let’s have it at my house. We’ll make it special,’” Engle said. Then Engle started getting estimates for renting all the extra tableware she would need for the party. When it came to $1,400 for the 40 place settings or so that she was looking for, Engle was flabbergasted. She decided to put out an e-mail to her friends looking for help, thinking that if she has place settings for eight to 12, that they all probably did, too. She was right. Each friend took on a table for eight, Engle had a decorating party with coffee and bagels, and the reception room was ready to go in no time. It wasn’t “matchy, matchy,” but that wasn’t the point, Engle said. And, of course, the bride was thrilled. “I had more people who wanted to do it than I had tables,” Engle said. “The whole room was so full of love, and every table was different.” In fact, everything went so well that everyone who got involved decided to have many more common dinner parties in the future. They bought several of the 10-top tables and made informal plans to hold more dinners this summer. “It was so much more meaningful, and we’re all being creative these days on how to save money,” Engle said. “I love how it’s going to continue, too.”

The wedding reception for Beth Springer, left, was hosted at Cindy Engle’s house in Arrowhead. Photo courtesy Nancy Cole Photography.

Local invited to speak at DC nonprofits conference Alice Leeds will share advice on contract negotiations Mountaineer Staff Report Long time valley resident Alice Leeds, owner and president of Convention Concepts, Inc., a meeting planning company in the Vail Valley for over 15 years, has been invited to share her advice on hotel and legal contract negotiations at a conference, Beating the Recession: The Non-Profit Executive Tool Kit. Ms Leeds intends to focus her address on winwin negotiating; a style of business negotiation that she believes delivers to a transaction what is necessary for both parties to equally succeed. “Cutting deeply into the profit margins of either the client or the vendor is neither a beneficial or sustainable way of doing business,” said Ms Leeds. Adding that, “What is essential to negotiation is discovering how to best fulfill the needs of both parties. I plan to emphasize that stabilizing concept at this conference. Today, many people are simply out to leverage a one-time bargain in a downturned market. In the long term, that benefits no one. We’re all connected to each other.” The conference benefiting nonprofits is to be held in Washington D.C. on May 28. For more information: www.NPTools2009.com.

THE UPDATE ----------------------------------------------------Papa John Edwards makes more news

In an interview with Oprah that is set to air Thursday, Elizabeth Edwards said she has “no idea� if her husband, a 2004 vice presidential candidate on the John Kerry ticket, fathered a child with his mistress, the New York Post reported. Edwards is rumored to have be the father of campaign videographer Rielle Hunter’s one-year-old daughter, the Post reported. “I’ve seen a picture of the baby. I have no idea,� Edwards told Winfrey, according to the EDWARDS Post. “It doesn’t look like my children but I don’t have any idea.� In the interview on Oprah, Edwards talks about her marriage, her husband’s affair and her ongoing battle with terminal cancer, according to the Post.

Oprah, or death by stoning?

Reuters is reporting a man was stoned to death in Iran for adultery but the woman involved in the case repented, the judiciary said on Tuesday, suggesting her life was spared. “The Islamic Republic has been heavily criticized by the European Union, rights groups and the United Nations for stoning convicted criminals and there are official Iranian recommendations the practice should not occur,� the report said. Iranian media said the executed man was 30 years old.

Al-Qaida goes hip-hop?

The latest video to come from Somalia’s al-Qaidabacked Al-Shabaab wing delivers its jihad message with a hi-hop vibe, according to CNN.com. A man with an American accent and dubbed “The American� by alQaida, named Abu Mansoor al-Amriki, is believed to be the one shown in the video, according to CNN.com, and he raps with an American accent. Some of the lyrics in the video, according to CNN.com, are: “Mortar by mortar, shell by shell, only going to stop when I send them to hell;� and, “Away from your family, away from our friends, away from ice, candy bars, all those things is because we’re waiting to meet the enemy.�

Are we all extremists?

The Department of Homeland Security, which considers military veterans as potential terrorists, had earlier sent out a dictionary listing such groups as rightwing conservatives, anti-abortionists, black power groups, pro Mexican and Cuban groups, some Christian groups, tax-haters and others as extremists, the Washington Post reported. The dictionary, called “Domestic Extremism Lexicon,� was recalled within hours, the Post reported.

US radio show host barred from entering UK

Britain published its first list of people barred from entering the country for allegedly fostering extremism or hatred, including Muslim extremists, a right-wing American radio host, an Israeli settler and jailed Russian gang members. The U.K.’s law and order chief, Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, said Tuesday that she decided to publish the names of 16 of 22 people who have been banned by the government since October so others could better understand what sort of behavior Britain was not prepared to tolerate. She cited unidentified “public interest� reasons for not disclosing the other six names. “I think it’s important that people understand the sorts of values and sorts of standards that we have here, the fact that it’s a privilege to come and the sort of things that mean you won’t be welcome in this country,� Smith told GMTV. But some of the people on the list criticized it, and one analyst said it contains a wide variety of people to avoid giving Britain’s Muslims the impression that it singles them out.

Dems ask Justice to probe treatment of `freedmen’

A small group of powerful House Democrats has asked the Justice Department to investigate whether American Indian tribes are engaging in modern-day racial segregation against black “freedmen” who are descendants of former tribal slaves. The lawmakers, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers of Michigan and former civil rights leader John Lewis of Georgia, say five major tribes have been systematically removing freedmen from their membership or relegating them to secondclass status without voting rights and other benefits. In a letter sent last week, they asked Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate whether the tribes are violating treaties and breaking the law. “Over 40 years after enactment of the landmark Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts, there is a place in the United States that African Americans cannot vote or receive federal benefits as a matter of law,” the letter says. “They are called `freedmen,’ but they are anything but free.” The lawmakers said the tribes’ practices prevent the slave descendants from accessing millions of dollars in federal tribal funding for housing, health care and other services. Justice Department spokesman Andrew Ames said the agency would “review the letter to determine what action, if any, is appropriate.” Concerns about the treatment of tribal slave descendants have been growing on Capitol Hill in recent years, particularly among the Congressional Black Caucus. The issue heated up two years ago when the Cherokee Nation voted in a ballot initiative to amend the nation’s constitution to remove about 2,800 freedmen and other non-Indians from tribal rolls.

Disney goes au naturale

Disney says it will no longer scan riders on Splash Mountain and three other rides for guests who feel the need to flash their breasts for souvenir photos. Disney confirmed Tuesday that it has reassigned employees at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure who watched for breast-baring riders because “actual inappropriate behaviors by guests are rare.” Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown says the changes took effect Sunday at Splash Mountain, Tower of Terror, Space Mountain and California Screamin’. Riders are photographed on the attractions and can then buy souvenir copies. Some have exposed their breasts in hopes that the picture would make it onto a photo preview screen at the ride’s exit. The company began the screening about 10 years ago.

Arnold Schwarzenbonger

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says it’s time for a debate on whether to legalize marijuana, though he says he’s not supporting the idea. Schwarzenegger spoke Tuesday in Davis during an event to promote wildfire safety. He warns against making potentially harmful decisions just to raise money and says some countries that have decriminalized pot have had negative experiences. Democratic state Assemblyman Tom Ammiano says legalizing marijuana for adults over age 21 and taxing it at $50 per ounce would bring the state more than $1 billion a year. He has a bill in the Legislature but has delayed seeking approval until next year. California became the first state to legalize the medical use of marijuana in 1996. A dozen other states now have similar laws.

Torture Memos Will Not Result in Prosecutions

Don’t Forget To Send Mom a Gift on Mother’s Day!

Bush administration lawyers who approved harsh interrogation techniques of terror suspects should not face criminal charges, Justice Department investigators say in a draft report that recommends two of the three attorneys face possible professional sanctions. The recommendations come after an Obama administration decision last month to make public legal memos authorizing the use of harsh interrogation methods but not to prosecute CIA interrogators who followed advice outlined in the memos. That decision angered conservatives who accused President Barack Obama of selling out the CIA for releasing the memos, and liberals who thought he was being too forgiving of practices they — and Obama — call torture. The president’s rhetoric, if not actual policy, shifted on the matter as the political fallout intensified.

VVF summer athlete grant applications due June 1 Athlete Commission provides financial support for individuals competing in international arena Mountaineer Staff Report As the temperatures rise and the snowline recedes, local athletes are reminded that summer applications for funding from the Vail Valley Athlete Commission are due by June 1. To be considered for funding, a competitor must be a minimum of 15 years of age; participate in international competition, outside of North America; be a resident of the Vail Valley for a minimum of three years and apply as an individual, rather than a team. Funds will be distributed by July 1. “It’s obviously big news when a local athlete like Lindsey Vonn does well at the World Championships or in the World Cup,” explained Ceil Folz, president of the Vail Valley Foundation, “but we often forget the hours of training and dedication that it took to get her to the top step of the podium. Since the Athlete Commission was created in 1997, the funds that we have been able to distribute have truly made a difference for many of our Vail Valley athletes and provided them with the opportunity to accomplish their own goals.”

Conceived by local resident Pepi Gramshammer and supported by the Vail Valley Foundation, Vail Resorts, the Town of Vail and the Beaver Creek Resort Company, the Vail Valley Athlete Commission is dedicated to providing financial support for individuals competing in an international arena. In addition to Vonn, the Athlete Commission has also provided funding to numerous local athletes, including Toby Dawson, Chad Fleischer, Sarah Schleper, Stacia Hookum, Chris Doyle, Mike Kloser, Josiah Middaugh and Jonny Stevens. Summer Athlete Commission applications may be downloaded from the Fundation Web site at www.vvf.org by clicking on the “About the Foundation” link, going to the “What’s In Print” button and clicking on “Forms & Applications”. Forms may also be picked up at the Vail Valley Foundation offices in Avon. All forms should be submitted to the Foundation at P.O. Box 309, Vail, Co. 81658, to the attention of Jennifer Mason, Director of Competition and Logistics. For additional information, contact the Foundation at 949-1999.

sales have slowed the last couple years, the perception among many property owners is that values are dropping, although that’s not the case in Eagle County, said Chapin. Those property value increases are important because they’re the baseline upon which all property taxes are calculated. With 82 taxing entities in Eagle County, property owners fund everything from the county government and school district, to cemeteries and libraries. Last year, the county commissioners let their share of property taxes rise by 38 percent by refusing to reduce the rate at which properties are taxed. The school district takes the other biggest property tax bite, but Gov. Bill Ritter made it impossible for school boards to reduce property tax rates. He froze those rates last year, a move that survived an appeal to the Colorado Supreme Court. But the extra money the school district collects does not go directly to local schools, but instead lands in the state’s general fund. Ritter’s executive order does not require one dime of that money be funneled to schools. To determine your property tax bill, actual value is multiplied by the assessment rate. That’s 7.96 percent for residential property and 29 percent for everything else, such as commercial property and vacant land. If you don’t agree with the county’s calculations, you have until the end of May to appeal. Appeals can be handled in person by stopping by the Assessor’s office – where they have cookies and candy for the tax paying public to enjoy – in writing or by e-mail. They cannot accept appeals over the phone, Chapin said. “So far, we’ve had lots of phone calls, but not many people have stopped by to appeal,” said Chapin. “We welcome people to come in and we’re happy when they do.

pre stigious event to come back to America.” Some of the community’s top leaders now were instrumental in bringing the first ski championships to Beaver Creek in 1989, including John Garnsey, now senior executive at Vail Resorts in charge of Beaver Creek, Rod Slifer and Harry Frampton, two of the three founders of Slifer, Smith & Frampton real estate, and Ceil Folz, president of the foundation. “I think the other thing that has really GARNSEY worked in our favor is the consistency,” Dakin said. “When you go back to who was involved in bringing 1989 here, a lot of those people, or people who helped run 1989 or 1999 are many of the same people involved in chasing 2015.” Folz said the foundation would look forward to working with the USSA and other partners “to bring home the championships.” Both St. Moritz and Cortina d’Ampezzo also were candidates for the 2013 championships. The winner will be announced in June 2010 at an FIS Congress industry meeting in Antalya, Turkey.

Philippon fixes Alex Gordon

Detoxify & Energize

Royals infielder agrees Internet in Vail is lousy

with Chinese Abdominal Massage in Vail

By Dean Blazier Special to the Mountaineer Kansas City Royals third baseman Alex Gordon has finally rejoined his teammates after spending 17 days here in Vail rehabilitating his right hip following surgery by local doctor Marc Philippon. Gordon seems happy to be done with the brunt of his physical therapy, which included spending as much as four hours per day on a stationary bike. Gordon was especially shocked when they had him on the bike just hours after the surgery, but this helps the blood flow, which will help his recovery (even though it made him throw-up). “Out in Vail,” Gordon said,“ I was getting (the games) over the Internet. I couldn’t really see it. I was

just getting the box score. “Coming home and seeing them on TV was kind of hard. Not being able to be out there and helping them. It’s tough, but it’s good to see that they’re playing well. That makes it a lot easier.” Gordon doesn’t really know how he injured the hip, just that it was tight on opening day, and continued to worsen as the season went on. Philippon is the go-to hip doctor of star athletes, performing surgery on names including Greg Norman, Mario Lemieux, Olympic gold-medal skater Tara Lipinski, former Nugget Marcus Camby, Mets second baseman Luis Castillo and NFLers Lynn Swann, Priest Holmes and Jay Fiedler. He’s also performed surgery on Alex Rodriguez, Kurt Warner and Minnesota Wild All-Star goalie Niklas Backstrom already this year. There is no timetable for Gordon’s return, but he expects to begin throwing by the end of next week. Gordon is scheduled for a follow-up exam in Vail in late May.

Tony Dungy visits Vick in prison Deal By Dean Blazier Special to the Mountaineer Michael Vick met former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy at the federal prison in Leavenworth, Kan. Tuesday to discuss Vick’s plan after being set free. Although Vick’s immediate plan is to work 40 hours a week at a construction company in Hampton, Va. for $10 per hour, Vick and Dungy discussed Vick’s plans to eventually return to the NFL. “I can confirm that Michael met with coach Dungy,”

Vick’s agent, Joel Segal, said. “The discussions were private, but the meeting was very positive.” A man as respected as Dungy having a talk with Vick will boost Vick’s stock in the eyes of other NFL teams, but signing Vick still poses a large public relations risk. Vick is scheduled to leave Leavenworth May 20 and will serve the remainder of his sentence in home confinement in his home town Hampton with his fiancée and two of his three children.

But is one of the clock shops forcing its customers to sign non-disclosure agreements?

Time is abundant on East Midland Street in Bay City. BAY CITY, Mich. — Terry Kasper, known as the Clock Doctor, and Lane Westrick, who’s the Watch Doctor, spent a decade together fixing clocks and watches. But then Kasper decided to strike out on his own — right next door. “Yeah, it’s crazy,” Westrick told The Bay City Times. “I’ve told him that two clock shops probably aren’t going to make it.” Westrick said he added clocks

to his business, believing Kasper would be moving elsewhere in Bay City or to another city. “If (Westrick) would have just done watch repair, we wouldn’t have a problem with it,” said Kasper’s wife, Connie. Kasper said he moved to avoid a significant rent increase. He opened a shop next door to stay in touch with longtime customers and now has more space to display his clocks. Kasper and Westrick said police have stopped by to sort out some argu-

ments. Both are mulling legal options. A clock dealer, Midland Clock Co., saw an opportunity and joined Westrick’s watch shop. The owner, Chris Bahr, said he didn’t know the Clock Doctor still would be ticking. “If I’d have known he was going to move next door, I would have thought more about it. ... All we want to be is left alone and let the quality of the work be the competition,” Bahr said. —The Associated Press
