Businesses bashed Property values rise 50 percent, as will tax bills By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Colleen McCarthy’s shop in the Edwards Riverwalk could be a field study in the efficient use of space. But according to her property value notice, it might as well be the Taj Mahal. The Baggage Cheque’s commercial space is worth over 50 percent more than it was a couple years ago, according to the county assessor’s valuation that went out last week. That means McCarthy’s property taxes, which she said she couldn’t afford last year, will go up at least 50 percent next year. That could be the straw that breaks her


business’ back, said McCarthy. “We’re struggling already. We didn’t have the money to pay this year’s taxes,” said McCarthy. Most retailers in the Edwards Riverwalk own their own space. Having a consistent multiyear mortgage usually helps eliminate one of the variables, and headMCCARTHY aches, business owners face. Commercial property values in most of the Riverwalk are up in the neighborhood of 54 percent. Unless the entities and boards that collect property taxes lower the rates at which real estate is taxed, McCarthy and others are in for

another pounding. Commercial property is taxed at 29 percent. Residential property is taxed at 7.6 percent. Assessments arrived last week Every few years, everyone’s property values are reassessed. That’s Colorado state law. It’s also the law that those values are based on property sales in your neighborhood between Jan. 1, 2007 and June 30, 2008. Our nation’s economic engine began its famed break down pretty much the day after that. (Bear Stearns’ collapse was made official at the end of May.) Sales are down, taxes and expenses are up. The immediate future looks like rough retail sailing.

For Mom and Pop shops like McCarthy’s Baggage Cheque, when next year’s property tax bill rolls in, with its 50-percent bigger bite, it might be time to make some tough decisions. “Even if they don’t own their own space, the landlord will pass that tax increase along. Someone’s going to pay,” said McCarthy. 82 tax takers Eagle County is home to 82 entities that take a bite of your property tax dollar. Of those, half have asked the voters for the freedom to adjust property tax rates without a public vote. “The Board of County Commissioners should have lowered the mill levy, [See BUSINESSES BASHED, page 4]

Stocks dropped Wednesday after data suggested the economy is not bouncing back as quickly as investors hoped. The Commerce Department said retail sales unexpectedly fell in April for the second straight month, while RealtyTrac Inc. reported a rise in home foreclosures.

2010 budget will be based on student count Next year’s school district budget is a literally moving target. The Eagle County School District, like everyone else, is watching and waiting to see what happens with the county’s population as the economic downturn continues. For now, the school district is forecasting 168 fewer students next year than this year. Schools in Colorado are funded in accordance with student enrollment numbers. For the 2009-2010 school year, that funding will come at $7,500 per student. The district has roughly 6,000 kids. Some members of the End of the World Glee Club estimate that Eagle County could hemorrhage as much as 30 percent of its population, stemming from downturns in

the construction and real estate industry. But no one is seeing changes like that, said school board president Scott Green. “For now, enrollment is flat,” said Green. “We’ve seen some kids moving around, kids moving in and kids moving out, but the numbers have remained consistent.” Still, school district officials are keeping a watchful eye on student numbers. “Construction and service workers are traditionally unemployed at some point during the year,” said Green. Once the school year ends, the numbers will become clearer, although no one will know anything with certainty until next fall when student counts become official. “Most of these parents aren’t going to disturb the school year,” said school board member Brian Nolan.

This year’s state finance bill provides a 4.9 percent per-pupil funding increase. Exactly how much more, or less money that sends to Eagle County’s schools remains to be seen. “In this economic climate, previously used models for enrollment predictions are being thrown out the window,” said Superintendent Dr. Sandra Smyser. “We have been monitoring student counts very closely to determine if families will be leaving Eagle County.” They’re listening to community voices, principals and any other “on the ground” indicators they can find to try to put together, including hiring professional demographers, to try to predict students as accurately as possible, Smyser said. “Inaccurate predictions will have real financial consequences for our district,” said Smyser.

Two non-profit groups (and one for-profit group) are celebrating their move to Minturn’s Main Street. The Minturn Community Fund and the Eagle Valley Alliance are holding an open house today at 102A Main Street. Active Energies, a company involved with saving energy in homes, also has an office in the storefront.

“Since we’re the Minturn Community Fund, I felt it was important to be in Minturn,” said Kerry Donovan, director of the group. “It made sense for us to split it. It required an awesome landlord to work with us through that process.” Stop by the office for snacks and drinks from noon to 6:30 p.m. That party segues into a “green drinks”

event with free margaritas at the Minturn Saloon, 146 Main St. Minturn company The Pantry is handling the appetizers. Local band Hardscrabble will play. Organizers suggest that participants park in the town lot just past the Minturn Saloon on the left.

Avon planning chair resigns Evans steps down amid complaints that board is ‘rough’ By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Chris Evans, former chair of the sometimes controversial Avon planning and zoning commission, stepped down Tuesday. As a result, colleague Chris Green will serve another two-year term on the board. The two were tied for the final seat Tuesday night after an Avon town council member vote for three open planning board seats. “If it comes down to a choice between Chris Green and myself, I would like to step down,” Evans said after the initial vote. “I am more than EVANS satisfied with the time I have put in.” Evans said he had heard some complaints about his tenure — which include 12 years on the planning commission, 10 as chair. He apologized for an exchange he had at the April 7 meeting with colleague Kathy Nottingham about historical preservation. But he also said he felt he had kept the best interests of the town at heart. “I have tried to do the best job I can,” Evans said. “Part of the job as chair is a lightning rod.” Not respectful? Some applicants to the planning and zoning commission felt otherwise, Councilman Buz Reynolds told Ev-

ans before the vote was taken. “I’ve been to 10 to 12 meetings in the last year and a half, and some of the attitudes that came out were rough,” Reynolds said. Mayor Ron Wolfe echoed the sentiment in a question to Green about his candidacy. “Members of the public, applicants, say P&Z is not respectful. … Do you think P&Z is guilty of that?” Wolfe asked. He then joked that he also has been known to be “roughshod” in running town council meetings at times, drawing laughter from folks in the room. “When applicants bring a project to P&Z and they’ve invested heavily, there are emotions that go with that,” Green responded. Evans ‘an asset’ Many on the council spoke highly of Evans and his work, including Reynolds. “I think Chris Evans has been an asset to the town of Avon, and he probably will be missed. He’s a friend, and I will always speak up for him,” Reynolds said. Evans and his wife own Evans Chaffee Construction in Avon. Wildridge resident Green is an architect at Ago Studios. Paul Anderson, an Eagle/Vail resident with property in Avon, and Avon resident Leslie Roubos, owner of Maverick Lending in Vail, were the other two candidates picked to serve on the planning and zoning commission for a two-year term. The board is not term-limited; town council terms are limited to eight years.

Black Gore Creek project wins environment awards By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer


You’ve noticed how much cleaner Black Gore Creek is on the west side of Vail Pass along I-70. The Colorado Department of Transportation won three environmental awards for the project that cleaned years of sediment and sand from the Black Gore Creek watershed. The project was honored with the 2009 CDOT Environmental Process Award, as well as the Max Rollefson Award of Merit from the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter of the American Fisheries Society. The third award came from the Black Gore Creek Steering Committee, comprised of local governmental representatives, nonprofit organizations, and regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service and the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment. The Black Gore project was completed in 2008. It cleaned out and reconstructed the catchment basin originally constructed in the 1970s when I-70 was built over Vail Pass.

that would have been the right thing, the moral thing to do,” she said. “This is why the TABOR Amendment evolved, because of things like this.” McCarthy was part of the Vail Rec District board that became the county’s first to ask for, and received voter approval to de-Bruce, or lift TABOR’s restrictions on property tax collection. So she knows what it looks like. “I’ve served this community for 30 years and I’ve served on public boards and volunteer organizations,” she said. “Not a month goes by that I don’t have local non-profit organizations on here asking for donations. I’ve donated to five already this year. That’s what local

Approximately 2,400 truckloads of sediment were removed from the area. Fish activity popped up soon after water started flowing again. The removed sediment was then used by CDOT and the Town of Vail to construct a berm to protect area neighbors from noise and light associated with an adjacent commercial vehicle chainup station. “This was an outstanding effort on the part of CDOT. We are grateful for the perseverance, creativity, hard work, and dedication of the CDOT team in making this project a success,” says Dick Cleveland, Mayor of Vail. He acknowledged the importance of roadway sanding to help keep motorists safe in the winter, and he cited the Black Gore Creek Project as a “way to balance that need with environmental protection.” In the years since construction of I-70, more than 50 smaller catchment basins have been installed by CDOT in the upper Black Gore Creek watershed to trap sand before it reaches the Black Gore Basin. “This was really extraordinary of CDOT, and so important for our rivers,” said Jon Stavney, Eagle County Commissioner.

businesses do.” “Wal-Mart and Costco don’t do it.” McCarthy has 30 years of her life invested in her business, and says she’d like to retire in the next three to five years. She questions some of the spending decisions of elected officials. “Open space doesn’t do me any good unless I can pitch a tent and live in it. I’m all for open space, but not when we can’t afford to spend our property taxes,” she said. “Just because you have money doesn’t mean you have to spend it.” “Every elected official who’s up for re-election should be voted out of office,” she said.

The U.S. Army Special forces A-Team displays a thank-you banner for the Vail Mountain School, which recently sent them 650 Power Bars. The Power Bar donation drive continues at the school. Photo special to the Mountaineer.

No hero should have to go hungry Mountaineer Staff Report The Vail Mountain School 5th grade class has been working with lower school Spanish teacher Kelly Tissier to collect nutrition and power bars for soldiers in the Middle East. To date, the class has raised 730 bars. 650 bars were sent to U.S. Army Special Forces A-Team, who is training in Wyoming and headed to the Middle East next month. The soldiers were very grateful, sending a photo back to the school and writing that they sometimes spend 20 hours/day on the range and out in the field with only the bars to get them through breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The 5th grade’s relationship with the soldiers began on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the school’s Volunteerism Day, when the students “adopted” soldiers and wrote them letters of thanks and good wishes. In many of the letters, the children asked how they could help. The soldiers wrote back, and said that what they really needed was quick, nutritious food supplies in the field. The class started the “No Hero Should Go Hungry” campaign, and the rest of the school—students and teachers/staff alike—have been donating bars since. The deadline for final collection is Wednesday, May 27. If members of the larger Eagle County community would like to donate bars to this cause, they can drop bars off at the school with attention to Kelly Tissier.

Are you looking for work? Program gives up to $6,000 per person for training By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Unemployed and looking for money to go back to school? The Colorado Workforce Center in Edwards may be able to help. It has a pot of money from the state — up to $6,000 per person per year — to hand out to unemployed workers. “It’s not going to pay for stuff like basket weaving, but if it will help someone with their job search or increase their job skills, it’s possible,” said Mary Cunningham, a spokeswoman for the center. In the last three months, the center has seen a 50 percent rise in funding handouts, Cunningham said. Applicants run the gamut, from unemployed construction people to office workers. Many of the applicants use the money to take classes at Colorado Mountain College, but one went to the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, and another is going to Red Rocks Community College. Business workshops may count A person has to be eligible for unemployment benefits and prove that the training can help them find a job, Cunningham said. While there’s no guarantee that all classes will be funded, things like a business workshop being offered at Colorado Mountain College, starting today, could be good candidates, Cunningham said. However, students must apply for the training money a month in advance, she added.

HR Services Co. might have just the thing, said Lynette Horan, a spokeswoman for the Vail Valley office. She will teach two sets of classes on supervisory and leadership skills. The first one starts tonight at the Colorado Mountain College Edwards campus. The second set starts on July 21. “For people who are looking for jobs, it’s helpful to have these skills if these skills are not what you feel are your strengths,” Horan said. Perfect time for training In addition, now is a perfect time to do training, since many companies are less busy now than they have been, Horan said. “This is the time, because companies are trying to do more with less. People are being put into leadership positions, and they may not have any experience,” Horan said. Funding from the Workforce Center is “wide open,” Cunningham said. The CMC class costs $40 per person. “It can be one class like this, or it could be a college degree,” Cunningham said. Interested in registering for the class at Colorado Mountain College? Call Horan at (970) 328-2331 or the CMC campus at (970) 569-2900. Interested in finding out more about the Workforce Center? It’s located at: 69 Edwards Access Road, No. 9, across the street from the Riverwalk complex. Or call: (970) 926-4440.

lie Kroes said Intel has harmed millions of European consumers by “deliberately acting to keep competitors out of the market.� The commission told Intel to immediately stop some sales practices in Europe, though it wouldn’t say what those were. The fine against the world’s biggest ship maker represents a huge victory for Intel’s Silicon Valley rival, Advanced Micro Devices Inc., or AMD, the No. 2 supplier of microprocessors to PC makers. AMD has sued Intel and lobbied regulators around the world for the past five years, complaining that Intel was penalizing PC makers in the U.S. and abroad for doing business with AMD. Investors were expecting the Intel fine and seemed unfazed. Intel stock lost 8 cents to close at $15.13. AMD was up 3 cents at $4.38.

Wage controls for all Wall Streeters

The Obama Administration, congressional leaders and regulatory officials have started substantive talks on regulating compensation throughout the entire financial-services industry, including organizations that have not received money from Federal bailout funds, the Wall Street Journal reports. Various options including using the supervisory role of the Federal Reserve and the power of the Security and Exchange Commission are reportedly being discussed. “We need to make sure that incentives are aligned among all parties by making compensation contingent on the long-run performance of the underlying loans,� Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Chairman Sheila Bair said on Tuesday. While regulators have long been enabled to sanction a bank for its pays structures, these new talks are likely to be controversial among bankers who fear the government’s ability to intervene will impose systematic risk on the economy and hurt specific companies’ viability.

The Denver Post owner MediaNews Group says it plans to charge readers for some of its online content and deliver some services in bundles. MediaNews President Jody Lodovic says the idea is to place value on newspaper content and change the perception that it’s free. Lodovic didn’t have the specifics on how much readers would be charged or when the practice would begin. The move would mean readers would have to pay for full access to certain articles that appear in the print edition of The Denver Post. Abbreviated versions of stories would still be available for free and print subscribers would still have full access to articles. The Denver Post reports that the bundling packages could include giving subscribers versions of articles for e-reading devices like Amazon’s Kindle, electronic replicas of the paper, as well as home delivery.

Mammoth Mountain Ski Area will keep their slopes open until at least June 14, Los Angeles Times blogger Pete Thomas reports. High early season snowfall and a slew of spring storms will allow the California-based resort to stay open into next month, which it hopes will alleviate some of the financial difficulties experienced this year.

President Barack Obama declared Wednesday he would try to block the court-ordered release of photos showing U.S. troops abusing prisoners, abruptly reversing his position out of concern the pictures would “further inflame anti-American opinion� and endanger U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama’s turnabout set off immediate reactions from bloggers, both liberals who decried that he was buckling to political pressure and conservatives who agreed with the decision but said it proved the president was a flip-flopper. The White House had said last month it would not oppose the release of dozens of photos from military investigations of alleged misconduct. But American commanders in the war zones expressed deep concern about fresh damage the photos might do, especially as the U.S. tries to wind down the Iraq war and step up operations against the Taliban and al-Qaida in Afghanistan.

During a party thrown at boyfriend Doug Reinhardt’s house, Paris Hilton’s blue Bentley was egged along with other high-priced cars in the neighborhood, E!Online reports. Originally thought to be retaliation perpetrated by Hilton’s party guests in response to a noise complaint issued by neighbors, the vandalism reportedly was directed at Hilton. “We had nothing to do with this,� Hilton said. “My blue Bentley was egged and I even filed a victim’s report.� Los Angeles police responded to the area twice. According to a source close to Hilton, the couple thinks paparazzi could be the culprits.

Colo. school sports survive School sports survive tough times Although the children may like the idea of a four day school week, it does not speak well of the local economy. The economic shadow over Colorado high schools this spring has left districts to agonize over budget cuts that could mean larger classes, four-day weeks and shrinking bus routes. But even in tough times, sports remain intact. Certainly, high school athletic directors have made trims. They squeeze an extra season out of uniforms, have kids provide their own transportation to games — and even

certify the coach to drive the team bus. At stake are programs that studies cast as cost-effective contributors to everything from grade-point average to girls’ health. A look at several Colorado high school sports budgets show that only about 2 percent of general fund spending is on sports, while engaging up to 70 percent of a school’s students. “People think that schools just shove money into athletics left and right,� said Steve Longwell, athletic director at Eaton High School. “In the whole big picture, though, it’s a very small percentage.� Schools use a variety of accounting systems, often making direct fi-

nancial comparisons difficult. Some schools, such as Regis Jesuit High in Aurora, devote a larger fraction of their overall budget to athletics — 5.68 percent, in this case. But the school pays for sports entirely from its general fund, without participation fees. Some districts have considered reducing the number of levels offered in a sport, perhaps eliminating a sophomore squad. ThunderRidge athletic director Bob Nelson staunchly resists that approach. “In my mind,� he said, “that’s 15 more kids at home in the afternoon with nothing better to do.� —The Associated Press

Beckham playing dodge ball with wife

If a horde of Italian groupies throws down a total of $30,000 to be awarded to the first woman who has the privilege of spending the night with you, it’s safe to say you’re a stud among studs. That’s what David Beckham is, and now he is getting blasted with allegations that he hasn’t been completely faithful to his former Spice Girl wife Victoria. Beckham, who will be celebrating his 10-year anniversary soon, allegedly had a candlelit dinner with model Mariann Fogarasy following a game in Budapest. Beckham denies any claims of being with other women because he is still in love with his wife. He says, “I have no desire for other women. I only love Victoria. Ninety percent of what is written about us is invented. The last one was this story about the Hungarian model. I have never been out to dinner with this young lady. “If I took the time to deny every story, I wouldn’t have time to be a footballer.� Victoria Beckham has reportedly cancelled the couple’s 10th wedding anniversary party amid claims that David is not spending enough time with their children.

Fruita to celebrate famous headless chicken this weekend Residents of Fruita are holding their 12th annual festival this weekend for a chicken named Miracle Mike who, according to legend, lived 18 months after a farmer lopped off his head with an ax but left his brain stem, a jugular vein and one ear intact. It all began when Lloyd Olsen, a farmer in Fruita, was butchering chickens in 1945 and tried to lop Mike’s head off, according to Olsen’s grandson, Troy Waters, who admits he’s a bit mystified by all the fuss. Waters had to coax the story out of his grandfather after finding a scrapbook the Olsens kept about Mike. His grandfather said the birds sometimes flopped around after their heads were cut off, but one rooster kept going and was alive the next day inside an apple box Olsen had put him in. The barnyard mishap made news and national magazines and turned Mike into a sideshow hit in the 1940s. Olsen said he kept “Miracle Mike, the Headless Chicken” alive by giving him ground grain and, using an eye dropper, water, down his esophagus. Decades passed and the stories about Fruita’s most famous fowl faded, only to be revived when the town was looking for a way to promote the area. Situated along the Colorado River and once an agricultural stronghold, Fruita added the “Mike the Headless Chicken” festival to annual events that include a mountain bike race and a marathon that wind past canyons and red-rock formations in the nearby Colorado National Monument. This year’s event, May 15-16, will include a 5K run, music, artwork, petting zoo, lawn mower races and the Chick Olympics: Peeps and chicken wingeating contests and an egg toss. Thousands of people are expected
