Mud running mayhem Competitors get down and dirty today at Teva X-1 Mud Run By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer For Gaby Zahorsky, a Vail-Marriott employee, mud sounds like more fun than running. So it just made sense that she signed up for the Teva X-1 Mud Run presented by Sprint being held at 2:30 today near the Vista Bahn chairlift for the Teva Moun-

THE UPDATE

Stocks ended a volatile Friday little changed after the government reported a surprising drop in job losses for May but also a spike in the unemployment rate to 9.4 percent. It was the highest jobless rate in more than 25 years. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 12.89, or 0.2 percent, to 8,763.13. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 2.37, or 0.3 percent, to 940.09. The Nasdaq composite index fell 0.60, or less than 0.1 percent, to 1,849.42.

Pelosi, Cheney equally unpopular

According to a Gallup poll released yesterday, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Dick Cheney are about equally disliked by the American public. In the May 29-31 poll, 37 percent of respondents had a favorable view of Cheney while 34 percent had a favorable view of Pelosi. The unfavorable ratings were also very close - 54 percent had an unfavorable view of Cheney and 50 percent had an unfavorable view of Pelosi. The poll had a margin for error of 3 percentage points. The news is bad for Pelosi who held about an equal percentage of favorable and unfavorable views among respon[See THE UPDATE, pages 8-9]

Zahorsky said. Like Zahorsky, Jackie Pirog, an employee at Colorado Capital Bank in Edwards, started thinking about the mud run after talking to her friends. “It seems to be a lot more locals, and it’s so fun to get dirty,” Pirog said. Zahorsky has a similar story. She also likes to mountain bike and climb, but [See MUD RUN, page 13]

Getting active Zahorsky insists that even though she is competitive, she really doesn’t like running. But she currently is training for a six-mile leg of the Denver marathon as part of a four-person relay team from work. “It’s a good way to get out and get active and have fun while doing it. It’s not as serious as some of the other ones,”

tain Games. The three-mile run, which includes a mud pit that competitors must at least “crab-walk” through has gained a cult status among local athletes and non-athletes alike for its dirty factor. “I love playing soccer in the mud, so that’s what made it for me,” Zahorsky said. “I’ve always seen friends do it, and they’ve had a blast, so it seemed like so much fun.”

Vail’s online auction creates low-price war Winning bidder to do job for $30,000 less than projected By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer

The folks in Vail had an idea: Let companies hammer on each other until the last one left standing is the lowest bidder. The town needs a top dressing applied to about 73,000 square yards of streets, mostly north of I-70 in West Vail. The bidding was done online where everyone in the cyber world could see, and it was a cyber smackdown. “In theory, we should get the best price possible,” Chad Salli, Vail’s project engineer said before the bidding began. When it was done, A-1 Chip Seal said they’d do it for about $30,000 less than the town’s engineering department thought it would cost. A-1’s final bid came in at $140,000. The auction went like this. An outfit called BidBridge handled an online auction for the project, while a few town staffers and some other curiosity seekers watched. When the bidding opened, three bidders went straight at each other in a game of economic chicken until everyone else blinked. Of the three, one was significantly higher and dropped

out after dropping its bid a couple times. The other two pounded each other for several rounds until A-1 was left standing. Each bidder can see the others’ bids, but not the details. Once a bid goes up, they have a few minutes to rework their own packages and resubmit them. They can trim their profit margins or cut their price in any number of ways. It goes on like this in 15-minute increments until there’s a winner. It could end immediately, or it could go on for several rounds like this one did. Salli said that for most jobs, the town likes to go with local firms when it can. He said few local firms do this kind of work. “You need to keep a crew going constantly through the season, and the Denver firms work all up and down the Front Range,” said Salli. “The season is short up here and there’s just not enough work for most local companies to do.” BidBridge LLC, says a live auction like this one usually generates savings of between 7 and 13 percent. A-1 paid BidBridge a fee. Vail paid nothing. Salli said the work will take about two weeks, beginning around the middle of July. It’s supposed to be finished by the end of August.

How about buying a Vail home for $100? Or in the meantime, how about winning $10,000? The Vail Academy is raffling off a $1.8 million Vail duplex. Tickets are $100 and they have to sell 27,000 of them. Along with the house comes $450,000 in cash to pay the IRS. Before they draw for the house, they’re holding three drawings for $10,000 worth of cash prizes. The second of those drawings is Sunday. Trevor Thelke of Eagle and Elizabeth of Edwards were two winners in the first cash drawing The house, the east side of a duplex at 1673 Matterhorn Circle in Vail, is being donated as a fundraiser for The Vail Academy, the Christian elementary and middle school in Eagle-Vail. “We’re the first [house raffle fundraiser] in Colorado,� said local Realtor Steve Michonski, who’s helping run the project. How it works The grand prize drawing for the house is set for July 21. Before that are three preliminary drawings for a $10,000 pot - $7,500 for first place, $2,000 for second and $500 for third. To sweeten the pot, there’s a referral program. If someone you refer to the contest wins the house, you can win $25,000. “We’re banking on the name ‘Vail,’ to help pique interest,� said Michonski, a broker with Prudential and treasurer with The Vail Academy school board. This is a chance to help one of his clients move a piece of real estate, raise a bunch of money for The Vail Academy so the school can keep tuition costs down, and make a couple winners very, very happy. “We’ll never sell more than 50,000 tickets, so with the preliminary drawings your chances of winning are improved,� said Michonski.

SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIAL Hip-hop legend Aceyalone, above, and his band “The Lonely Ones” play a free show at Checkpoint Charlie tonight at 6 p.m. Photo special to the Mountaineer.

Say hot water! (In this magnificent city) Freestyle Fellowship founder featured at Teva tonight By John LaConte Vail Mountaineer Editor L.A.’s unsung hero of hip-hop, Aceyalone, comes to Checkpoint Charlie in Vail Village tonight at 6:00 p.m. Ace is no newcomer to the rap game. He’s a founding member of the Freestyle Fellowship, which released two albums, “To Whom it May Concern” and “Innercity Griots” before Ace went on his own in his highly praised first album, “All Balls Don’t Bounce.” Three years later, Ace released a second album called “A Book of Human Language,” and then in 1999, he released the self-titled group album “Haiku D’Etat,” a collaboration with Mikah 9 and Abstract Rude. “Who Framed the A-Team?” was another collabo album released by Ace and Abstract Rude in 2000. In 2006, Aceyalone released two more solo projects, first, “Magnificent City,” a collaboration with producer

RJD2, followed by “Grand Imperial.” However, many are referring to his new album, “Aceyalone and The Lonely Ones,” as his best work yet. On “Lonely Ones,” Ace diverges from his standard, rapid-fire rhymes to a jazzy, Motown sound fully equipped with horns and memorable hooks. The pace on the album rarely slows giving way to a full album of head-bobbers that doesn’t disappoint. The album, which will be available for purchase at the show, is consistent through all 11 tracks, but some standouts are “The Way it Was” and “Power to the People.” “Lonely Ones” is definitely one of the most interesting hip-hop albums in recent memory, and will certainly make for an off-the-chain performance. So make sure you’re at Checkpoint Charlie at 6 p.m. tonight, because when Aceyalone and The Lonely Ones are ripping it up, you’ll never lose your groove.

‘Special Master for Compensation’ latest czar

The Wall Street Journal reports that the Obama administration is expected to name Kenneth Feinberg to the “Special Master for Compensation,” a position created to oversee companies receiving federal bailout money and make sure these companies are following executivepay rules. The position will report to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. Feinberg, managing partner and FEINBERG founder of Feinberg Rozen LLP, was in charge of the federal compensation fund for victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks overseeing approximately $7 billion. A formal announcement of the post could come as early as next week.

Obama tailors message to his audience

President Barack Obama reached out Thursday to the world’s Muslims in a conciliatory Cairo speech, exactly one year after giving a much different speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, an influential Jewish lobbying group. While the two speeches were consistent in important ways – both stressed Obama’s desire for peace in the Middle East and his support of a two-state solution for the Arab-Israeli conflict – the two had very different points of emphasis. On June 4, 2008, presidential candidate Obama’s promised American Israel Public Affairs Committee an “unshakable commitment” to Israel’s security, bemoaned the “rockets raining down” on Israeli towns from Palestinian territory, and said he would never force the Jewish nation to make concessions to its Palestinian and Arab antagonists. On Thursday, Obama spoke of the U.S. desire to remove its troops from Muslim Iraq and Afghanistan, lamented that Palestinians have spent decades suffering “intolerable” treatment, and decried their “daily humiliations” under Israeli “occupation.

Bet he doesn’t pay these tickets

A man’s decomposing body inside a minivan covered in parking tickets went undiscovered for weeks because the vehicle’s windows were apparently tinted and ticketing officers don’t normally search cars, police said Friday. George Morales, 59, died naturally from heart disease, the medical examiner’s office said Friday. The body was found in the backseat Wednesday when a city marshal tried to tow the vehicle from beneath an overpass on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, police said. He was believed to have been living out of the white Chevrolet minivan, which had North Carolina plates.

Lead in Chinese toys costs Mattel $2.3 million

Toymaker Mattel was fined $2.3 million yesterday by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for “violating a ban on bringing dangerous products into the United States,” Reuters reports. According to the CSPC, the fine is for excessive lead content in toys the manufacturer made in China. In recent years, Mattel has recalled 95 types of toys and 2 million individual units.

Waterboarding ties muddies Mudd

President Barack Obama’s pick for intelligence chief at the Homeland Security Department withdrew from consideration Friday amid questions about his role in the CIA’s interrogations of suspected terrorists. Philip Mudd was scheduled to appear next week before senators considering his nomination as undersecretary of intelligence and analysis. At issue was the extent of Mudd’s inMUDD volvement in the interrogation program while he was a senior CIA official in the Bush administration.

Amid growing dissent from within his own party, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has remade his cabinet for the second time in eight months in an attempt to keep his government intact, Reuters reports. Brown replaced the heads of 10 ministries but kept his finance minister, the head of the business ministry and his foreign minister. Six of the head ministers replaced resigned from their posts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will not waver, I will not walk BROWN away, I will get on with the job and I will finish the work,â&#x20AC;?

A retired State Department worker with top secret security clearance and his wife have been indicted on charges of spying for Cuba over the past three decades. The indictment unsealed Friday in Washington says Walter Kendall Myers and his wife, Gwendolyn Steingraber Myers, have been clandestine agents for Cuba since 1979. The pair were arrested Thursday. The indictment says the couple met with Cuban President Fidel Castro in Cuba in 1995, traveling through Mexico under false names. They allegedly made several other trips to Latin America and the Caribbean to meet with Cuban agents. The indictment also says in his last year of employment, Kendall Myers viewed more than 200 intelligence reports related to Cuba. An undercover FBI agent approached them in April, pretending to be a Cuban spy. Court documents say the couple fell for the ruse and began meeting with the undercover agent at Washington hotels.

While “potentilla” is just what we think of that common shrub with yellow flowers, it is actually a large genus with a good handful of plants that work here. There are also some herbaceous perennials, but today we’re going to address that useful shrub. While many are familiar with it, less know that the different improved hybrids have their origin in a Rocky Mountain native, Potentilla fruticosa. Potentillas are a useful landscape Michael shrub. Not only do they thrive in Gallagher this entire area, they are one of the few shrubs for here with a long flowering period. They are low-maintenance, and fill space. Different named varieties work in different settings. The main difference is size. An easy way to think of potentillas are as bigger, and smaller. There are selections that are more compact, around two feet or so, and then there are the larger ones. The reason I just use two groups, is that the compact varieties work well in larger rock settings and border plants, and larger varieties are generally used for filling space (in a nice looking way). While tags, and lots of information on the internet give size ranges for the different types, I have consistently found over the years, that they pretty much get bigger than what you read. I have also found blatant mistakes. I just happened to see Jackman potentillas referred to as a “compact” variety at a website. Read elsewhere, or just look around, and you will see otherwise. A planting at the Town of Avon years ago reached six feet and beyond in height, and almost as wide. Garden-something dot com has it wrong. Jackman potentilla has large leaves, large flowers, and large size. And I have worked with many named varieties of potentilla for years. Gold Drop, Sutter’s Gold, and the species, P. fruticosa, all make good rock garden plantings. Some varieties are more sprawling, some more mounded, and are a good way to occupy spaces in larger rock areas. Sutter’s Gold is a good substitute for our native species, as its open, low growth fits rock gardens to a tee. The native tends to flower less, but also still worth having in the collection. Katherine Dykes potentilla is notable for its more pastel yellow flowers. Most potentillas run closer to basic yellow, but this beauty has a softer, lemony appearance, while still cheerfully bright. While often sold as a three to four foot plant, it can easily hit five feet in height and spread. Potentilla fruticosa varieties are easy to prune. While I prefer thinning to shearing, potentillas can be cut back to almost nothing and grow back. If you have to have the formal, perfectly round look, you can shear it to shape, and look dorky. Otherwise, just let them go. They slightly leggy look is nice, and more natural. Thinning out the longer growth leaves

an appearance that fits the mountains and high deserts. If size is an issue, buy smaller varieties. It’s less work in the long run if you do need to maintain size, anyway. Coronation Triumph is a nice, more upright potentilla, and good because it has about the longest flowering season. All the fruticosa hybrids are long blooming, but an occasional local problem is low or non-flowering. An apparent common cause is overwatering without adequate drainage. Potentillas under sprinkler systems seem to be the more prevalent victims. Potentilla fruticosa tolerates a wide range of water conditions, and stands some drought, but needs a drained soil in wetter conditions. If they seem cliche, potentillas are planted here for a reason. They work, and they look good. There are many varieties at our local excellent nurseries. Be sure and check tags, and be aware that they may get bigger than the tag might say. Potentillas in particular are worth inquiring further about, and this would be a good flowering shrub to write us about if you have questions. I have worked with a number of varieties, and have seen both correct and incorrect stuff online. Write letters@vailmountaineer.com on this or any mountain and high desert plants and landscaping. A reader asked me to address our local native wildflowers, and another asked about establishing wildflowers in landscapes, so keep your eye on the Mountaineer. We’ll do it up.

PARKORE HITS TEVA

–––--------------------------------------

[From page 1]

a spot on the street near the freeride obstacles set up for the Teva Mountain Games in Vail through Sunday. The spot is near the International Bridge in front of the unfinished Solaris commercial and condo project. Several of the stunts are so smooth that the crowd walking by doesn’t even react. There are a few rubber mats on the ground to cushion the impact of the gymnastic, hard-hitting stunts, many of which look like they should be done on crash pads to protect the performers. TAYLOR “Free running” stunts are an offshoot of “parkour,” a French term that roughly translates to getting from Point A to Point B as quickly as possible on foot while expressing oneself, explains Brian Taylor, the team leader. Go to hybridfreerunning.com to see a sampling of stunts. Many of the stunts come from a martial arts background and/or a gymnastics or aerialist background, said Taylor, 32. ‘As fun as possible’ “It’s not as fast as possible, but it’s as fun as possible,” Taylor said. But find out a little more about the team members and you’ll also find a wide variety of backgrounds. Taylor has a martial arts background and used to practice break dancing moves. That’s how he met Jazon Khazi, with whom he used to “B-Boy,” the name for strength moves used while break dancing. Danielle Grover, the gymnast, can move quickly around the bars, which are similar to uneven parallel bars in gymnastics. Team member Dan Perez likes to practice on a trampoline. The group basically operates for the love of the sport, although it’s now trying to market what it does, teaching classes in recreation centers around Denver. Kids attracted to free running learn basic moves for a year or so before they move on to flips and more complicated stunts, Taylor says, the better to avoid injuries. He should know -- Taylor has suffered more injuries than anyone else on his team, including a broken arm, a dislocated shoulder and a torn knee ligament, the common skier’s injury. “It’s supposed to be more environment-friendly, but it takes flips to catch people’s eyes,” Taylor said. “My guys also know how to add comedy and keep the crowd.” The team has been involved in commercials and in marketing products at Go Fast, a Denver beverage company where Taylor is the art director. Team members of Hybrid Free Running are: Elias Logan Breitweiser of the Hybrid Free Running team Worsencroft, Lorin Ball, Logan Breitweiser, Dan goes inverted over a couple of parkour fans at the Teva Perez, Jazon Khazi, Noah Mittman and Danielle Games Friday.

Partnership in Avon, actually decided she could do well in the 10K on Sunday after finishing the Vail Mountain Uphill earlier this spring, a race straight up to the top of Vail Mountain, more than 2,000 feet in elevation gain, on snowshoes, cross-country skis or any other device. “If I managed to live though that one (the Uphill), I can do it,” McNair said. “It’s a lot of fun competition.” McNair also is training for a triathalon in Steamboat later this summer, pointing out that sticking to just one sport gets kinda boring. Would she join the mud run? McNair was a bit evasive on that one. “I think it’s going to be hilarious,” she said. “I’ll definitely watch it.”

Switzerland’s Roger Federer holds up the trophy after winning the Australian Open in 2007. If Federer can beat Robin Soderling on Sunday in the French Open final he can tie Pete Sampras’ career mark of 14 Grand Slam singles titles. AP photo.

Federer one win from career Grand Slam, tying Sampras

By coming back to beat No. 5-seeded Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina yesterday 3-6, 7-6 (2), 2-6, 6-1, 6-4, Roger Federer moved within one victory of his first French Open championship — and of so much more. If he can beat No. 23 Robin Soderling of Sweden on Sunday, Federer also will tie Pete Sampras’ career mark of 14 Grand Slam singles titles. And he will become only the sixth man with a career Grand Slam, at least one title from each of tennis’ four majors. Sampras, who made his name as a grass and hard court player, never won a French Open title. “There’s still one more step,” Federer said. Federer will no doubt be relieved that this year he will not have to face world No. 1 Rafael Nadal, who lost to Soderling earlier in the tournament. Since the start of the 2005 French Open, Federer is 0-4 against Nadal at Roland Garros, 29-0 against everyone else. Similarly, over the course of his career, Federer is 2-5 against Nadal in Grand Slam finals, 11-0 against all other opponents.

NBC takes flak for no live Federer coverage

NBC Sports took a beating from American tennis aficionados today after Roger Federer’s quest for a career grand slam and record-tying 14th Grand Slam title was not shown live in the United States. According to Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch, NBC’s contract with the French Open allows them to play only one men’s semifinal in the 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. timeslot. An NBC spokesperson said the Federer-Del Potro match, which went five-sets, would have been shown if the other semifinal between Robin Soderling and Fernando Gonzalez had ended before airtime began. “I think we’ll look at ways to make this work next year,” said an NBC spokesperson.

Glavine feels betrayed by Braves

Memphis’ Dozier was rejected from Georgia due to SAT

An aggravated Tom Glavine said Friday that he wasn’t happy with how Atlanta handled his release and after his public comments Braves president John Schuerholz apologized for the club’s approach. Glavine, still seething as he talked in depth for the first time since his release on Wednesday, said the Braves knew they were going to release him on Tuesday afternoon but “still paraded me out in Rome to a sold-out crowd” for his minor league start that GLAVINE night. “That to me is extremely aggravating,” Glavine said. Hours after Glavine’s statements, Schuerholz issued an apology “on behalf of the organization and myself personally for the way that it ended.” The Braves avoided paying Glavine $1 million bonus he would have been owed if he made the 25-man Major League roster by cutting him; the Braves insist the move was made due to Glavine’s performance in the minor leagues.

Tiger Stadium gets reprieve from demolition

The demolition of Tiger Stadium was halted by a judge Friday, just hours after crews began tearing down what’s left of the historic ballpark. Wayne County Circuit Judge Isidore Torres issued a temporary restraining order, said Robert Rossbach, spokesman for the Detroit Economic Growth Corp. The injunction was requested by the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy, a nonprofit group that had tried to raise money to preserve and redevelop the ballpark. Its $33.4 million plan was rejected Tuesday by the city’s Economic Development Corp. board, which said funding wasn’t in place. Tiger Stadium opened in 1912 as Navin Field, on the same day Fenway Park opened in Boston. The Detroit Tigers left after the 1999 season, moving to Comerica Park.

The Rittenhouse presents

Reggae on the River

The Memphis Tigers basketball team’s SAT scandal has deepened. According to ESPN’s Mark Schlabach, former University of Memphis basketball player Robert Dozier had significant irregularities with his SAT scores that resulted in his rejection from the University of Georgia. The story claims the testing company that administers the SAT invalidated Dozier’s first score, and he scored 540 points lower on his second attempt. Additionally, an anonymous letter sent to the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse by someone claiming to be a faculty member at Dozier’s high school questioned his score on the admissions test. These concerns caused Georgia to deny admission to the basketball standout who then went on to help lead Memphis to the 2008 Final Four. This is the second SAT–related scandal for the school in recent weeks. This weekend, Memphis officials will answer charges in front of the NCAA Committee on Infractions that another Tiger from the 2007-2008 team, Derrick Rose, cheated on his SAT.

Late birdie gives Furyk share of lead

Visit our Showroom East of Costco on Lindbergh

One last birdie for Jim Furyk put him one more stroke under par, which he found more gratifying than being in a share of the lead with Jonathan Byrd on Friday at the Memorial. A blue sky and warm sun translated into fast greens at Muirfield Village, leading to a crammed leaderboard going into a weekend loaded with possibilities. Tiger Woods had his worst score in nearly two years — a 2-over 74 — and still was only six shots behind. Furyk had two bogeys from the bunker on the back nine, but finished with an 8-iron that stopped on the top shelf about 8 feet away for birdie on the 18th that gave him a 2-under 70. He hasn’t been atop the leaderboard this deep into a tournament since winning the Canadian Open in 2007, his last PGA Tour victory.

Eagle County offered matching donations at Village Market in Edwards. The Town of Avon gave away recyclable grocery bags and will continue the food drive throughout the month of June. All donations were delivered to the Salvation Army food bank in Edwards and the Methodist Church in Eagle. Donations are accepted year round. Call the Salvation Army at 926-3704.

No lawn mowing under the influence ... A Maine man stands accused of getting behind the wheel after drinking. But he wasn’t operating a car or truck — he was on a lawn mower. VASSALBORO, Maine (AP) — Police say 51-year-old Danforth Ross of Vassalboro was charged May 29 with operating under the influence after he and a friend made a beer run on a riding lawn mower. The arrest came after the two emerged from a variety store with two cases of beer. Ross’ driver’s license had been revoked, so he and a passenger opted for the lawn mower. Trooper Joe Chretien made the arrest after getting flagged down by several motorists warning of a wayward mower. Danforth couldn’t be reached for comment. Mowing right along . . .

BOB BURGOS, TOM SHORE AND “PAULY FROM NEW YORK” (sorry Mr. Seidman, we couldn’t resist!) wanted the iconic postcard shot of the Gore Range in the background. Problem is, their heads are in the way! It’s the photographer’s fault, not theirs.

Proctor in the house! Rick Franken, owner of Bomber Gear, is in town showing off his waterproof inking technique for kayak art. The homie Franken actually injects the ink into the pours of the neoprene, creating a waterproof barrier that seals the design in the fabric. He invented the technique himself; check him out at his booth near the kayaking area this weekend. Franken’s a product of Proctor Academy in New Hampshire, which makes him both smart and cool.
