Property tax debate could mean cuts . . . Avon valuations shot up 14.5 percent By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer In cash-strapped Avon, any future property tax debate may mean service cuts, says Larry Brooks, the town manager. Property values in Avon shot up 14.5 percent on average, according to the Eagle County assessor’s office, which sent

out property tax valuations last week. At least some businesses and town council members aren’t happy about the increase. “Any debate about property tax will be a balancing act with the services that are provided,” Brooks said. “We’ll want to talk about … what to do to protect the interests of our citizens. Everyone is strapped.”


The town’s current mill levy is 11.392, down one mill from last year’s 12.3927 mill collection. Avon’s town council is expected to start discussing those revenues this summer, Brooks said, as the town budget gets put together for next year. “We haven’t had a chance to talk about it, yet. I don’t know where the council is going to feel about it,” Brooks said.

Anecdotally, the property value increase is so big, it could force some residents to move, said Buz Reynolds, an Avon councilman. “Give me a break. The economy is in pretty hard shape, and people are figuring out how they can stay here,” Reynolds said. “I’m going to protest. I own six pieces of property here, so it’s hurt me pretty good.” Tough economic times Reynolds said he understands that all [See VALUATIONS, page 19]

Stocks finished mixed but well off their lows as early concerns about stock offerings eased and rising oil prices boosted energy stocks. Investors shifted into defensive corners of the market, driving up shares of drugmakers like Pfizer Inc. and food and drink producers like Coca-Cola Inc., which tend to hold up better in economic downturns. The Dow rose 50.34, or 0.6 percent, to 8,469.11. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index slipped 0.89, or 0.1 percent, to 908.35. The Nasdaq composite index fell 15.32, or 0.9 percent, to 1,715.92.

Denver Democrats have chosen high school principal and education reformer Mike Johnston to fill the district vacancy left by former state Senate President Peter Groff, who took an education post in the Obama administration. A vacancy committee picked Johnston, a 34-year-old Stapleton resident, on Monday night. He will serve until at least the next general election in 2010. “Mike Johnston worked hard to promote his candidacy against an excellent field of candidates,” said Colorado Democratic Party Chairwoman Pat Waak. “We congratulate the new senator for SD33 and look forward to working with this fine addition to the Colorado majority.” Four people were in the running, including former state Rep. Rosemary Marshall. The others were Anthony Graves, a member of the Democratic National Committee; and Renee Blanchard, a community activist and retired airline employee. Groff was elected to the Colorado House of Representatives in 2000 and appointed to the Senate in 2003. He became Colorado’s first black Senate president last year and was a strong supporter of charter schools and education reform. He stepped down at the end of this year’s session to become director of faith-based community initiatives for the U.S. Department of Education. Groff said there was little he could tell Johnston, the founder and principal of the Mapleton Expeditionary School for the Arts in Thornton, a public high school lauded by President Barack Obama last year after all of its 44 graduates were admitted to four-year colleges. “He is one of the foremost thinkers in our country on education issues in our country; he’s someone

Teva Games building excitement . . . Games co-founder reflects on 10 years of mountain sports adventure

A Project of the Vail Valley Foundation

By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer When it started almost a decade ago, the Teva Mountain Games was a slalom kayak event with venues in Vail and Minturn. Vail had just built a new whitewater rafting park, and residents Joe Blair and Joel Heath were working at the town tourism bureau on running events to show off the new river features. The first year was so successful that the duo started a new company called Untraditional Marketing and added other events. The mountain games, were born. “Teva was introducing the closed-toe shoe. To get into a new demographic, we introduced the Teva Mountain Games,” Blair said. “In 2002, we did kayak, trail running, climbing and speed trials and mountain bikes.” Things grew so quickly that this year’s games coming June 4-7 could bring as many as 40,000 people to town. Athletes from all over the world come to Vail to compete in seven different sports for more than $100,000 in prize money. In addition to the original events, the games now also include fly-fishing, dog events

and multi-sport racing. An estimated 1.4 million people tune in to watch on TV. The Vail Valley Foundation bought the event from Untraditional Marketing. Blair started a new branding and consulting agency Fall Creek LLC and Heath going to work for Teva in Santa Barbara, Calif. “We really saw the games as a platform for the mainstream industry to get involved,” Blair said. “None of (the sports) can stand alone. They’re all great sports, but they’re not mainstream.” Those sponsors, including Volkswagen, and, of course, Teva, allowed the games to generate the “cachet and cash” to grow, Blair said. “There was an opportunity with the Vail Valley Foundation, and they obviously have a great track record,” Blair said. “It was very important for us — we live in Vail — that it stay in our home.” Blair currently is working on branding a foam product found in such diverse products as cell phones and baseball mitts. The Vail Valley Foundation recently announced a multi-year agreement through 2011 with Medina, Ohio-based DockDogs, the leading canine competition organizer in the U.S.

Gallegos project receives national acclaim . . . Vail masonry company makes outstanding use of stone Mountaineer Staff Report

Got Emergency? REAL 24 HR SERVICE


A Gallegos project that took three years to complete has received national acclaim. The custom-built home in the Roaring Fork Valley received the Prism Award from Coverings, an International Tile and Stone Expo, that “honors outstanding achievements in the use of natural stone.” The home displays stone species from around the world, but was designed to complement its surrounding environment. The project was unique on many levels, explains Taylor Serson, project manager. It used custom-cut large module, hand-chiseled granite cladding and roofing. “We assisted in sourcing the granite based on the homeowner’s request for stone that matched the ochrecolored cliffs above the home. The granite selected was quarried and fabricated in Brazil,” Taylor says. “The home is a masterpiece that I am proud to say Gallegos worked on.” The home also required more than 7000 square feet of Colorado Buff sandstone paving and flooring that was cut and finished at the Gallegos Marble Shop. Approximately 150 people attended Coverings’ Awards Reception, which was held in Chicago at the McCormick Place Convention Center during the 2009 Coverings Trade Show. The Gallegos Corporation was founded in 1970 by Gerald G. Gallegos as a specialty stone masonry company.

Blacksmith cabin could get historic designation Yvonne




Tanning & Trimming since 1998

3 Tanning Beds Open Mon-Sat, No Appointments Necessary

Nottingham family building may be moved By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer A cabin used as the Nottingham Blacksmith Shop in the early 1900s in Avon may get a historic designation tag from the town soon. But first town council members, the town historic group, and various property owners want to know how much it would cost to take the building apart and put it back together in a new location, among other things. Since it’s already been moved twice to its current home at 2000 Hurd Lane near the Eaglebend apartments, it’s not eligible for other national historic status, according to a report done by a Colorado consulting company. “It’s one of the only structures we have from Avon’s history to save,� said Matt Pielsticker, a town planner.

“It’s a historically significant building.� Kathy Doll, a trustee of the property, said Tuesday she thinks the structure should be saved. Avon also may be able to find a new home for it, based on comments made by Town Manager Larry Brooks at Tuesday’s meeting. The cabin could become a tourist attraction in the future, Councilwoman Amy Phillips pointed out. Clyde Nottingham built the shop some time between 1908 and 1912 as part of the buildings around his home on the Eagle River. The Canyon Run Condominiums are now located on the original homesite. Avon town council members decided to put off the historical designation decision for two weeks to find out how much it might cost to move the structure.

Alpenrose back in bloom

Classic Vail restaurant re-opens for 35th year

Kerri Young

is on Maternity leave!

She’ll be back ASAP!


By Matt Van Tassel Mountaineer contributing writer Günther Schmidt is an intimidating figure in a small kitchen. Tall, slim, bespectacled and graying, the head chef of Alpenrose in Vail Village answers questions while cooking spätzle, a type of German pasta. Waivering only when asked a question, it seems Schmidt would be more at ease with a flaming skillet in front of his face than a reporter’s tape recorder. “I know it comes with the job and this is what I do,” he says about being interviewed. When he was 15, Schmidt began an apprenticeship at the Taunus Hotel in Wiesbaden, Germany, not far from the region that lends its name to his current restaurant. He’s cooked in Germany, England and Switzerland and has been working in The Valley for 35 years – The Red Lion Inn, Lancelot Restaurant, Lord Gore, a long stint at Ambrosia Restaurant and The Alpenrose for two years. Schmidt has seen the area grow in the three and a half decades he’s been here. He was trained in French classic cuisine and Alpenrose serves a variety of Europeanstyle dishes, many from the Alpine region. Using the techniques he has learned and refined, Schmidt incorporates different ingredients to make some variants of classic dishes. “It’s not necessarily all German, I combine a few things from different countries and states,” he says. The roasted duck is served with mashed potatoes, the Schnitzel is served with spätzle and the Colorado lamb chops are served with polenta. Brushed with a simple mixture of mustard, butter and fresh herbs, the lamb chops are Schmidt’s favorite, he says, because they are consistently tender. Bonnie Havlik, who owns Alpenrose along with her husband, Dennis, prefers the duck. “I love it!” She says. “It’s so crispy and the presentation is wonderful.” The Havliks have owned Alpenrose for almost five years – a fraction of the restaurant’s 35-year existence. Bonnie Havlik considers Alpenrose “one of the last traditional restaurants in Vail.” She boast about its patio, which has an unobstructed view of the mountain and basks all day in the sun. Inside, an abundance of natural wood grain helps to create a cozy, cabin feel. On several sheets of clean glass the word “Alpenrose” and the flower itself have been etched by Ladislav Havlik – Dennis’ father originally from the Czech Republic who used to engrave for Steuben in Corning, N.Y. The smell of pastries made in-house by Belgian pastry chef Laurant Noël help to complete the inviting atmosphere. Just as almost every other restaurant in the country and many around the world, Alpenrose felt the diner clench their dollar a little tighter last year. Since the financial slump began more people began eating at home; revenue for American Italian Pasta Company, North America’s largest maker of dry pasta, increased 43 percent from September 2007 to September 2008. While grocery stores and its suppliers received an unexpected and welcomed benefit from the poor economy, restaurants felt the pinch. However, Bonnie Havlik is optimistic for the upcoming year considering the Four Seasons should be complete in December and the Solaris possibly not too long after that. The two new hotels will put Alpenrose a bit

closer to the center of the action. On Mother’s Day Alpenrose offered an eggs Benedict special. Schmidt happily adds a dollop of hollandaise sauce, the only other chef in the kitchen garnishes with what looks like chives and the dish goes out through a window set high on the wall. A waitress sticks her head in the window and picks up the Benedict. “How is the five-top?” Schmidt asks. She smiles and says it’s doing just fine. Although many restaurants remain closed for longer than two weeks in the off-season, Schmidt likes the idea of closing a little later in the season and opening a little earlier as a small courtesy to locals. “The off-season is still the off-season, but it’s nice for the locals just to have some places open,” he says as he cracks two more eggs and eases them into the hot water. He seems amiably apathetic as to whether he has to work hard or take a break. “I take it as it comes,” he says. He shifts from one foot to the other while answering an irrelevant question about cooking fish in his home town of Mainz, Germany compared to here in the United States. Germans cook with more Dover sole he says, whereas here there is more salmon and trout. Not much herring here. Both have halibut. It doesn’t seem to matter much to him. “I’m exposed to different foods. If you’re experienced you can adapt to different situations.” The ratchet of the printer summons him before any more such questions can be asked. Back in his element, Schmidt smiles and heads for a pan.

On Monday, the White House Council on Environmental Quality was scheduled to meet with Robert Perkowitz, president of ecoAmerica, a Washingtonbased nonprofit that uses ‘psychographic research’ to ‘shift personal and civic choices of environmentally agnostic Americans,’” according to the report. “[Perkowitz] said that in a survey of some 2,000 Americans conducted by his group in March and April, less than half of the respondents said they would support a “cap-andtrade” policy, and that only 24 percent said they knew what the phrase means.”

5 Miami men convicted of Sears Tower attack plot

A federal jury in Miami has convicted five men of plotting with al-Qaida to topple Chicago’s Sears Tower and bomb FBI offices in hopes of igniting an anti-government insurrection. A sixth man was acquitted. Tuesday’s verdicts came after six days of deliberations in the third trial of the “Liberty City Six.” The first two trials ended in mistrials when jurors could not agree on the men’s guilt or innocence. A seventh man was acquitted in the first trial. The men were arrested in June 2006 on charges of plotting terrorism with an undercover FBI informant they thought was from al-Qaida. Defense attorneys said terrorist talk recorded on dozens of FBI tapes was not serious and the men wanted only money.

New studies suggest that getting too much folic acid might fuel certain cancers in some people, reports the LA Times. The recommended daily intake of folic acid is 400 micrograms, however it’s easy to exceed that with all the popular snack foods the vitamin is showing up in. “Too little folic acid we know is not good, and too much folic acid is probably not good,” Connie Motter, a genetic counselor at Akron Children’s Hospital in Ohio, was quoted saying in the report. “The answer is not going to be easy.” The synthetic version of folate, or vitamin B9, folic acid is one of eight B vitamins.

The owner of the Miss USA pageant said Tuesday that Carrie Prejean can keep her crown, rejecting complaints that her photos and her advocacy violated contest rules. Prejean then stepped to the lectern and said the allegations were “hateful” attacks by people who didn’t like her response to a question about same-sex marriage during last month’s Miss USA pageant. “On April 19 on that stage I exercised my freedom of speech, and I was punished for doing so,” she said. “This should not happen in America.”

From civil court to the silver screen

An Eagle-Vail boy who was sued over a ski crash in 2007 is being featured in a movie trailer as part of a national ad campaign against lawsuit abuse. The trailer, showing in Denver-area theaters this month, is one of four made by the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform. Institute spokesman Mark Szymanski says the ads are airing across the country in an effort to educate the public about problems associated with frivolous lawsuits. The Colorado ad tells the story of Scott Swimm, who was sued by a Pennsylvania skier over an incident on Arrowhead Mountain in January 2007. Scott was 7 at the time. His father, Robb, says Scott tried to pass the man and ran over his skis, causing both skiers to fall. The Pennsylvania skier hurt his shoulder and sued Scott and his father. The Swimms say they’ve since agreed to a $25,000 settlement to avoid going to trial.

First they came for our soda pop

Senate leaders are considering new federal taxes on soda and other sugary drinks to help pay for an overhaul of the nation’s health-care system, reports the Wall Street Journal. “The taxes would pay for only a fraction of the cost to expand health-insurance coverage to all Americans and would face strong opposition from the beverage industry,” according to the report. “They also could spark a backlash from consumers who would have to pay several cents more for a soft drink. The Senate Finance Committee heard proposals from about a dozen experts about how to pay for the comprehensive health-care overhaul that President Barack Obama wants to enact this year. Early estimates put the cost of the plan at around $1.2 trillion. The administration has so far only earmarked funds for about half of that amount.”

Social Security, Medicare dwindling in recession

Social Security and Medicare are fading even faster under the weight of the recession, heading for insolvency years sooner than previously expected, the government warned Tuesday. Medicare already is paying out more money than it receives, something that happened for the first time last year. And Social Security will be by 2016, a year sooner than had been projected, the trustees’ annual report said. Unless changes in Social Security are enacted, the retirement fund will be depleted in 2037, four years sooner than projected last year. The Medicare trust fund is in even worse shape. It is projected to become insolvent in 2017, two years earlier than expected. More immediately, the trustees do not expect Social Security recipients to get cost-of-living increases in 2010 or 2011, something that hasn’t happened since automatic adjustments were adopted in 1975. The Social Security Administration will set next year’s cost-of-living adjustment in October, based on inflation over the previous year.

Vatican says Pope not a Nazi

The Vatican defended Pope Benedict XVI on Tuesday as a man of strong antiNazi credentials and a peacemaker in the face of mounting Israeli criticism and Arab anger over the Israeli occupation. Critics faulted the German-born pope for failing to apologize in a speech at Israel’s Holocaust memorial for what they see as Catholic indifference during the Nazi genocide — a controversy that threatened to overshadow his high-profile pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Benedict delivered messages of peace Tuesday while visiting the holiest Muslim and Jewish sites in Jerusalem, the Dome of the Rock and the Western Wall. “The purpose of this visit is peace,” said Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi. The pope has been on the receiving end of strident messages from both Israelis and Arabs. On Tuesday, Grand Mufti Mohammed Hussein handed the pope a letter complaining about Israeli policies in Jerusalem and appealing for the Vatican’s help in bringing about Palestinian independence. “We reiterate to you that peace and stability in this country, which have been lacking for decades, can only be achieved with the end of occupation and with our Palestinian people regaining their freedom, their right to self-determination and their other legitimate rights,” it said. The pope’s speech at Israel’s national Holocaust memorial Monday attracted widespread attention in Israel, with the parliament speaker accusing Benedict of glossing over the Nazi genocide. The pope’s own wartime actions — he was forced to join the Hitler Youth and the Nazi army, which he later deserted — have also drawn notice.

in a military stress center, his father said Tuesday. Wilburn Russell, 73, told reporters that his son, Sgt. John M. Russell, was treated poorly at the stress center and had e-mailed his wife calling two recent days the worst in his life. “I hate what that boy did,” said the elder Russell, speaking in front of the twostory suburban home his son is buying with his wife. “He thought it was justified. That’s never a solution.” The 44-year-old soldier has been charged with murder and aggravated assault in the Baghdad slayings Monday, which his father said came just weeks before the end of his third tour of duty in Iraq.

Tony Hawk coming to Colo. Skating legend Tony Hawk can perform practically any feat on a board. When his feet arrive in Nederland, though, the legend wants to lay low. Hawk plans to visit the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six month-old skatepark May 30 for a grand opening and dedication event, but the head of the nonprofit group that runs the park says Hawk doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be the focus. NEDSK8 Inc. executive director Randy Lee says

events will highlight the achievement of volunteers in getting the $500,000 park built. The Tony Hawk Foundation gave $75,000 toward the effort. The park is named after a Lafayette boy, Nathan Lazarus, who teamed up with Hawk on Fox TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?â&#x20AC;? to win money for Hawkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foundation. The grand opening will feature a skateboard demo with Hawk.

Clemens running out of excuses

The rights to use the logo are part of a $53 million package the city approved in 2008 to keep the USOC in Colorado Springs for another 25 years. But the USOC notified the city and developer LandCo Equity Partners on April 30 that it was terminating the deal. USOC spokesman Darryl Seibel says the logo rights will be rescinded when the termination is final. The termination took effect immediately for LandCo, and for the city, in 30 days. City spokeswoman Sue Skiffington-Blumberg says she hopes for a resolution before time expires.

All-star pitcher clearly doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand genetics The release of the book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Icon: The Fall of Roger Clemens and the Rise of Steroids in Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pastime,â&#x20AC;? has Clemens once again scrambling to deny his alleged steroid use. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen excerpts of the book. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re completely false,â&#x20AC;? Clemens said in a phone interview with ESPN radio show hosts Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic the same day the book was released. Clemens has even refuted DNA evidence after reports surfaced that his DNA is on syringes his former trainer Brian McNamee supplied to federal prosecutors; McNamee alleges he used the syringes to inject Clemens with illegal PEDs. Clemens calls that claim â&#x20AC;&#x153;impossibleâ&#x20AC;? and followed that up by slapping a defamation suit against McNamee. Clemens has stuck to his guns in asserting his innocence since the beginning. Most recently, he hilariously credited heart problems in his family history as another reason why he would never use PEDs, citing his stepfather, who died of a heart attack. The funny part ... Clemens may actually believe that his genetically unrelated stepfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health somehow affects his own. Clemansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; former manager Joe Torre said â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think when he speaks -- and maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why he played so well for so long -- is that fact that he basically believes what he says.â&#x20AC;? Or, in other words, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a lie if you believe it.

Tillmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents want generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record reviewed

The parents of slain Army Ranger and NFL star Pat Tillman voiced concerns Tuesday that the general who played a role in mischaracterizing his death could be put in charge of military operations in Afghanistan. In a brief interview with The Associated Press, Pat Tillman Sr. accused Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal of covering up the circumstances of the 2004 slaying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do believe that guy participated in a falsified homicide investigation,â&#x20AC;? Pat Tillman Sr. said. Separately, Mary Tillman called it â&#x20AC;&#x153;imperativeâ&#x20AC;? that McChrystalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record be carefully considered before he is confirmed. Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said Defense Secretary Robert Gates has complete confidence in McChrystal, whom he hopes can be confirmed by the Senate before monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel terrible for what the Tillman family went through, but this matter has been investigated thoroughly by the Pentagon, by the Congress, by outside experts, and all of them have come to the same conclusion: that there was no wrongdoing by Gen. McChrystal,â&#x20AC;? Morrell said.

Leaky Dykstra may owe $50 million It is safe to say Lenny Dykstra wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be giving anymore financial advice. The former baseball star is being sued in federal court for failing after a magazine project went bad. Who would have thought financial-advice mag aimed towards the glossy lifestyle of pro athletes would flop? But â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Players Clubâ&#x20AC;? indeed flopped and Dykstra, the one they called Nails, may get hammered for as much as $183,000 that he allegedly owes a group of five. The plaintiffs include Time magazine art director Arthur Hochstein, a former head of photography at Time Mary Anne Gordon, and Marco Canora, a celebrated chef Dykstra hired for the magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s launch party at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York. Dykstra owes Canora $15,000 for food-related expenses at the $400,000 partyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Dykstra paid, but his check bounced. Dykstra had trouble finding an attorney because he has a history of not paying his attorney fees, but he recently hired the law firm of Gumm & Green, which specializes in family matters and bankruptcy. The latest scandal raises Dykstraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total indebtedness to around $50 million, according to one source.

Amish boy back on the wagon . . . Police cracking down on rowdy Amish youths ticketed a teenager for having beer in his horse-drawn buggy when they pulled him over on a western New York road. They say 17-year-old Chris Slabaugh of Conewango was charged with underage possession of alcohol after he was stopped by Cattaraugus County deputies late Monday night in the town of Leon, 40 miles south of Buffalo. Detective Nathan Root says the teen admitted drinking beer, but passed a field sobriety test. Root says another Amish man in the buggy, 22-yearold Emanuel Miller of Conewango Valley, was charged with providing the beer. Both are scheduled to be arraigned June 22. Patrols were stepped up after an Amish elder’s property was vandalized when he confronted youths about their drinking and listening to radios. Rolling along ...

taxing districts need money to operate. But he feels the county shouldn’t buy open space if times are tight, for example. In Avon, all town employees currently take one day off without pay per month to deal with lower sales tax revenues that fund most of the town’s annual budget. “We’re trying to hold on to what we have and get through these tough economic times,” Reynolds said. Town Councilman Rich Carroll said he has heard from constituents saying the valuations this time around are too high. His own home valuation also seemed a little high, he said. Properties were asCARROLL sessed from January 2007 to June 30, 2008, since values and collections always lag the market. “I’m going to definitely evaluate that with some real estate friends,” Carroll said. Phil Matsen, owner of Matsen Enterprises, said he will dispute the valuations he received, as well. ‘Things are ugly’ “The values aren’t there,” Matsen said. “Things are ugly right now, just in the

real estate market.” George Plavec, an Avon builder, said one Wildridge parcel he bought last year more than doubled in value from $273,000 to $720,000, and he hasn’t been able to sell it yet, even though it’s on the market. “That’s going to be fun to pay for next year,” Plavec said. In general, however, Avon real estate prices went up significantly three years ago, in connection with plans for the new Beaver Creek gondola, which runs from the new Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa, said Amy Phillips, an Avon councilwoman. “I haven’t seen it go up significantly since then,” Phillips said. “My personal property is fine. I have no issue with it. But it’s definitely going to be different, neighborhood to neighborhood.”
