By John LaConte Vail Mountaineer Editor You thought it would never happen. The Vail Mountaineer has launched a Web site, available for your viewing consumption at The site offers you a chance to meet the Mountaineer team, learn about the Valley’s only locally owned and operated daily paper, submit news tips, check advertising rates, learn about our distribution areas and, of course, read news stories. However, you might find our site’s format regarding news stories to be a little different than you’re used to seeing on the Web. In addition to offering a few select stories on our home page, the site allows you the option to view copies of the paper’s pages exactly as they appear in print, in a standard .pdf format. By now you may have heard about the Vail Mountaineer’s theory on news and the Internet. The Mountaineer is encouraging the newspaper industry to cease publishing breaking news online. The



publishers of the Mountaineer fully understand the importance of online news and advertising, but desperately want the industry to think twice about the current road to ruin. The magic of the printed paper is the unique synergy between news and ads -- people pick up papers for both reasons and most read both news and ads. Online publications have yet to achieve this synergy. The best possible outcome for online publications is to sell subscriptions, but this alone won’t support a

Yoga Slackers begin Eco Expedition from Vail ...

Stocks fell moderately Wednesday after the government sold $19 billion in 10-year Treasury notes in a relatively weak auction. There were plenty of bidders, but the government had to lure them in with a higher yield than the market had anticipated. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose for the fourth time in five days, jumping to 3.96 percent from 3.86 percent late Tuesday. Investors are worried rising interest rates will crimp the economy’s recovery. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 24.04, or 0.3 percent, to 8,739.02. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 3.28, or 0.4 percent, to 939.15. The Nasdaq composite index fell 7.05, or 0.4 percent, to 1,853.08. [See THE UPDATE, pages 8-9]

Pavelich has always been on cutting edge Reade Bailey, a former Vail Daily editor and current Al Franken supporter who visited town recently, wanted to remind everybody that Mountaineer Publisher Jim Pavelich has always been at the cutting edge of technology. He referenced Pavelich’s purchasing of what was believed to be the first fax machine in Vail in the early ‘80s, back when Pacelich owned the Daily and Gates was a name better associated with the nowdefunct tire company. But despite Pavelich’s penchant for technology, the Mountaineer is not going to publish breaking news online.

Mafia local bank theft tops $250K

Victims, investigators trying to sort out how it happened By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer

The international crime syndicate that hit the bank accounts of local businesses didn’t get in through the bank, bank officials said Wednesday. The cyber crime drained more than $250,000 from those local accounts, according to sources in the victimized businesses. The cyber thieves transferred the funds to the personal accounts of at least 25 unknowing accomplices in the U.S., who thought they were working for a legitimate company. Those 25 were instructed to send the money by Western Union to Russia, Moldova and Ukraine. [See MAFIA BANK THEFT, page 17]

72-acre open space in Edwards for ‘quiet and comfort’ By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Thank heavens Ellen Eaton uses her powers for good. Eaton was the irresistible force who decided that 72 acres of open space in the county’s most urban area could be attained. She and Mike Eaton helped align the stars and put together Eagle River Preserve. “Ellen is the reason the reserve exists today, putting together the people who could make it happen,� said local developer Jen Wright, who was also pivotal in the project. The Eaton family homesteaded the land next door to Eagle River Preserve. “Ellen and Mike Eaton started the ball rolling,� said Eagle County Commissioner Peter Runyon during Wednesday’s opening ceremonies. The county put up half the $12 million price tag through its voter-approved open space funds. The Vail Valley Foundation launched a massive fundraising drive to come up with the rest, along with the Eagle Valley Land Trust and local philanthropists led by Harry Frampton. The purchase was nailed down in 2005. Cliff Simonton manages the project for Eagle County. His job was to convert what had been a B&B gravel

pit for the last 30 years into something like a tranquil utopia. He and the staff seem to be on the right track. “It’s not often that a group buys 72 acres, hands it over and says ‘make something good with it,’� said Simonton. “It’s dedicated to quiet and comfort for the people of Eagle County.� All it took was thousands of dump trucks paying fees to drop loads of dirt that eventually totaled 750,000 cubic yards. Crews and equipment from B&B spent months doing all the contouring. The space that is the parking lot is now 30 feet higher than it was when earth moving began in 2006. Trails wind through the area toward the Eagle River and the heavy spring rains have been kind in greening up the plant life around the project. A few pesky beavers are enjoying a beaver buffet on several trees recently planted. Wright said he looked at the area with a developer’s eye a year before it was put under one of the most restrictive conservation easements ever written. He and Frampton walked the stream bank along the Eagle River and decided it should be preserved. “There has been some criticism, but you’ll always have that,� said Wright. “This will be great for the Eagle River Valley for a long time to come.�

Urgent care clinic offers convenience of location Facility near airport not meant to be new hospital By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Folks with anything from a runny nose to a broken wrist should have a new urgent care clinic to go to near the Eagle County Regional Airport by early next year, a Vail Valley Medical Center spokeswoman said. With six patient exam rooms and two trauma areas, the new $2.2 million clinic will not be a hospital, said Denise Triba, Vail Valley Medical Center’s human resources and marketing director. The new facility is planned to be open 12 hours per day, seven days a week. “It’s for emergencies, so if people have sore throats, colds, or potentially broken bones, depending on what they see here, they might send them to a hospital,” Triba said. The urgent/emergent care facility is going into space the hospital already owns in the Clocktower Building

near the airport, Triba said. The current space is used mostly for storage and financial services. It is expected to serve residents in Eagle, Gypsum, Dotsero and rural western Eagle County as well as travelers from I-70 and those flying in and out of the airport. “It just made sense for us,” Triba said. A recent marketing study showed the hospital board that residents want convenience when it comes to medical care, said John Cassin, the hospital’s chief executive officer, in a statement. The new center will be a “Level 5 Trauma Center” staffed with doctors experienced in emergency and urgent care and will fill a previous void in the hospital’s coverage of Eagle County health care, Cassin said. Ambulance crews will be available at the new facility to transport patients “requiring emergency care,” Chris Montera, chief of Western Eagle County Ambulance District, said in a statement.

Special event parking will be $5 Mountaineer Staff Report Folks who want to park closer to concerts at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater have the option to pay $5 at Ford Park on 39 event days this summer. Special event parking at Ford Park has been in effect for 12 years. In the last few months, some residents have asked if more parking could be added for people who have problems walking to the concerts. The Vail Valley Foundation has golf carts to ferry folks back and forth from parking points to the concerts. A couple of additional handicapped parking spots have been added close to the amphitheater, too, said Mike Rose, Vail’s

Rente por Meno$

parking and transit supervisor. “I think we’ve done a good job of taking care of the needs of everyone,” Rose said. Close-in parking starts next Tuesday to coincide with the first free Budweiser Hot Summer Nights concert of the season. Close-in parking also will be offered for events such as Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival, Vail International Dance Festival and the Vail Lacrosse Tournament. Fees will be collected from either 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. or from 4 to 8 p.m., depending on the day’s event schedule. Drivers going to concerts have several other parking options. The Vail Village parking structure

will remain free this summer with 10-minute bus service to the park during special events on the intown route. Event-goers are asked to board at the Covered Bridge eastbound stop about an hour before the event begins. For those who prefer to walk from the structure to the park, pedestrian paths provide 10-minute access to the park. Handicap access is available by going to the Vail Valley Drive entrances, both through Manor Vail and the Nature Center bridge path. In addition, several handicap-tagaccessible spaces and a monitored drop-off area will be available at Ford Park for private vehicles on peak days.

Free building permit bonanza? Plan could stimulate construction industry By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Avon may hold a “home renovation bonanzaâ€? in the future — free building permits for remodel jobs. Town planners are trying to figure out how much the idea would cost the town in potential revenue, said Eric Heidemann, assistant town manager — community development. Town council members suggested the idea Tuesday night after hearing that Denver currently offers free remodel permits as a way to stimulate the economy. The construction industry has been hit hard by a national economic slowdown that started in October. “At this point ‌ we’re analyzing the implications to our budget and whether our current staffing levels could meet the demand,â€? Heidemann said. In Denver, builders and homeowners can get free permits for all kitchen, bath and bedroom remodels, new roofs, new wall insulation, new heating and cooling systems, new water heaters and new siding. “Now is a great time for Denver property owners to take advantage of construction deals to complete home improvement projects they may be putting off,â€? said Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper. Free new home permits? Such a program would help keep the Avon builders happy, said Brian Sipes, an Avon councilman and an architect. “Issuing a permit on the spot, I think it’s a great thing to do,â€? Sipes said. The town currently has one building inspector,

Heidemann said, but other planners and design reviewrelated folks also could get involved in the permitting process. Mike Dantas, a principal at Dantas Builders Inc. in Avon, likes the idea, but said he would like it even better if the town were willing to consider free new home permits. Dantas paid $14,000 in permits and fees for a 4,000-square-foot home the company currently is building in Wildridge, Dantas said. “(The remodel permit plan) would give the homeowner a little bonus for helping the economy; is there a way to help the builder out, too?� Dantas asked. “It’s a lot of money.�

Homeowners holding their money Council members may discuss free new home permits, too, Heidemann said. Builders pay up to $30,000 in permits and fees to build some of the largest singlefamily homes in Wildridge, he said. Contractor Rex Ingram, owner of Rex Inc., also thinks the free permits would be a good idea. Ingram recently did a bathroom renovation in Avon and currently is working on remodeling jobs in Vail and Cordillera. “It’s a nice idea, but I don’t think it’s going to happen,� Ingram said. One reason: It’s tougher to get money from banks these days, Ingram said. In addition, homeowners seem to be holding on to their money, Ingram said, even for things they need. “Right now, there’s no question, if you’ve got some money you’re willing to spend, it’s a great time to do a building project,� Ingram said.

Mountaineer Staff Report Although it has come at the price of a lost loved one, Santana Jaramillo knows exactly what she wants for her future. The recent Eagle Valley High School graduate plans to study criminal justice and work toward becoming a detective or criminal investigator. Battle Mountain High graduate Cuhatlique Cardenas knows what she wants, too: to study culinary arts and eventually own and operate her own restaurant in Colorado. Both recent high school graduates are reaching toward their higher education goals as Alpine Bank Latino/Hispanic Scholarship recipients for 2009. They are among 10 students from West Slope high schools to receive the scholarship, which covers two years of in-district tuition and books at any Colorado Mountain College campus. While a sophomore in high school, Jaramillo lost a cousin to an unsolved homicide. The situation inspired her life’s ambition, and she plans to study at the Spring Valley Center of Colorado Mountain College, which also hosts one of the college’s two Colorado Law Enforcement Training Academies. Spring Valley is one of CMC’s three residential sites, near Glenwood Springs, and is part of the college’s Roaring Fork Campus. Jaramillo earned good grades in school, where she loved anatomy and physiology class and stayed active as a volunteer for such causes as the Relay for Life cancer fundraiser. She works part time at Vail Valley Cares

thrift shop. Fellow scholarship recipient and Edwards resident Cardenas loves to cook, especially mole sauce with chicken, and worked 20 hours a week at a restaurant in Avon while in high school. This summer she is working as an intern for The Youth Foundation in Eagle County. The Battle Mountain grad will be the first in her immediate family to go to college and will attend the Vail-Eagle Valley Campus, which is home to a noted culinary arts program. Her career goals include possibly attending Johnson & Wales University in Denver or earning a business administration degree. Both students are thrilled to earn the Alpine Bank scholarship. “I thought of all of the things that I wanted to do in the future, and I felt really lucky,� Cardenas said. “I was very excited to continue in school.� The annual scholarships are awarded to students who exhibit a strong desire to pursue a college education, some of whom will be the first in their families to attend college. Since the program began in 1996 with five original scholarship recipients, the bank has awarded 95 scholarships totaling more than $350,000. The other Alpine Bank Scholars for 2009 and their high schools are Karen Barraza, Rifle; Cynthia Garcia, Coal Ridge; Maira Serrano, Yampah Mountain; Moses Galvan, Glenwood Springs; Maritza Casas, Roaring Fork; Lorena Delgadillo, Basalt; Jesse Garcia, Aspen; and Matt Vigil, Summit.

Bocce registration ends tomorrow


La Bella Festa bocce tournament scheduled for June 21

10 All bottles %

By Holly Bass Special to the Mountaineer The second annual La Bella Festa Bocce Tournament will be held on June 21 at the Eagle-Vail Pavilion. The tournament is hosted by the Swift Eagle Charitable Foundation and is a fundraiser to help Eagle County residents in time of crisis or need. One hundred percent of the proceeds goes towards helping people. Right now, 30 teams are signed up to participate and the deadline to register is June 12. The goal is to get 50 teams out to play, says Craig Snowdon, a member of the Swift Eagle Charitable Foundation Last year, the event raised $25,000 with 40 teams participating in the tournament. The event starts at 12 p.m. with Bocce games starting at 1:15 p.m. An Italian buffet and silent action are scheduled for 5:30 p.m., and championship games are from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The top prize is $1,000, and second place receives $500. Last year, both winners donated their winnings back to the foundation, which was a very nice gesture, Snowdon says. Anyone can play Bocce, says Snowdon. Last year, eight-year olds were playing along side 70-year olds. In this version of Bocce, there are four players on a team and each player has a bocce ball. A Palina, or golf ball-sized ball, is thrown on the court, and everyone tries to throw their bocce ball close to the Palina. The closest person is awarded points. Each game takes 15 minutes, or until a player gets 11 points, whichever comes first. Members of Swift Eagle Charitable Foundation officiate the games and monitor the courts. They even carry tape measures around to settle any disputes because, as Snowdon puts it, the games can be “quite engaging.” The cost for an individual team is $250. Or, a team can choose to be sponsored by businesses or individuals. There are five levels of sponsorship which are $500, $1,000, $5,000, $10,000 or $15,000. For more information of what is included with each level, or to sign up to be a sponsor, e-mail, call 949-5279 or fax 926-0330. The Swift Eagle Charitable Foundation is a foundation that tries to “bridge the gap” and help people that other organizations like the Red Cross or Salvation Army, maybe can’t help, Snowdon says. For example, Swift Eagle Charitable Foundation bought a boy spe-

cial crutches he needed to be able to walk and he was able to walk at his high school graduation. Or they help families pay off mortgages, medical bills or car payments if they are in financial trouble. “In each of the last five years, we’ve doubled our giving,” Snowdon said. Swift Eagle Charitable Foundation was founded by 19 people who have lived in the Vail Valley area for over 25 years. The group decided to pool the money that they would normally spend on each other’s birthdays and instead use it to help people in emergency’s and crisis situations, Snowdon said. Dave Haakenson, president of Swift Eagle Charitable Foundation, had the dream to start the foundation in 2004. Phil Jackson, Los Angeles Lakers coach, is a personal friend of Haakenson’s and is the Honorary Chairman of Swift Eagle Charitable Foundation. Jackson comes to Vail and speaks as another fundraiser for the foundation. This year, Jackson is planning on speaking on September 13 at 4 Eagle Ranch in Wolcott. Jackson’s normal speaking fee is $75,000, but he donates his time to the Swift Eagle Charitable Foundation to help raise money. The La Bella Festa Bocce Tournament is a great place for social interaction, Snowdon says. And since it’s on June 21, “it’s a great Father’s Day and family affair,”

Washington Police Chief Cathy Lanier said the gunman was “engaged by security guards immediately after entering the door� with a rifle. “The second he stepped into the building he began firing.� Law enforcement officials said James W. von Brunn, a white supremacist, was under investigation in the shooting and that his car was found near the museum and tested for explosives.

House Republicans are calling for a hundred new nuclear power plants to be built in the next two decades as part of an energy plan they say is a better alternative than one championed by Democrats. The legislation unveiled by the GOP Wednesday would also increase production of oil and gas offshore, open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling and spur refinery construction. The money from the new drilling would go into a trust fund that would pay for the development of renewable energy. The Democratic bill has the support of the White House and is on course to reach the House floor as early as the end of the month. It sets mandatory targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and for producing electricity from renewable sources.

Congress is more equal than you

Despite pushing for a stronger ethics policy for its members that includes government financial disclosure reports to be released tomorrow, Congress and its members are allowed to keep certain aspects of their financial lives secret. Home mortgages, the purchase of big-ticket items such as expensive paintings and the value of stock and other investments are among the pieces of their personal financial picture lawmakers are allowed to keep to themselves. Assets they disclose in the reports such as stocks and bank accounts can be valued in broad ranges in instead of specific amounts. Even less is asked about spouse’s income; a lawmaker can simply state “more than $1,000.� Good-government advocates say it makes corruption harder to root out. Most of the House reports were inadvertently published earlier this week on the Internet—then quickly withdrawn again until Friday—but not before an Internet publisher, LegiStorm LLC, downloaded copies and began distributing them free from its own Web site.

Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., and Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., have co-sponsored legislation that would increase the $8,000 tax credit for first-time homebuyers to $15,000 and expand coverage to all borrowers, Bloomberg News reports. The bill introduced yesterday by Isakson would remove the $75,000 and $150,000 income caps on individuals and couples trying to redeem the credit as well as other restriction on who can qualify. Beyond Isakson and Dodd, eight other senators – seven Republicans and Sen. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., are already signed on for the bill.

According to Bloomberg News, the excess of spending over revenue for May hit a record for the month of $189.7 billion, almost $25 billion over the amount from last May. The Treasury reports a 5.8 percent increase in spending to $306.9 billion, and a 5.7 percent decrease in revenue to $117.2 billion. “The deficit is going to keep on setting a new record each month this fiscal year as the Obama administration pulls out all the stops to get the economy moving,� said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ Ltd. in New York.

Foot returns to Biden’s mouth

Vice President Joe Biden told an assembly of national law enforcement groups that Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor “has your back� drawing criticism from the legal world, Fox News reports. Critics of the statement say it is a pledge of bias that runs contrary to the fair and objective basis of the justice system. Some also say the issue of bias was already a large issue in the confirmation hearings slated for this summer. Biden made the comment while describing Sotomayor’s record of being tough on crime.

Mattress queen dethroned

An Israeli woman mistakenly threw out a mattress with $1 million inside, setting off a frantic search through tons of garbage at a number of landfill sites, Israeli media reported Wednesday. The woman told Army Radio that she bought her elderly mother a new mattress as a surprise on Monday and threw out the old one, only to discover that her mother had hidden her life savings inside. She was identified only as Anat, a resident of Tel Aviv. Subsequent searches at three different landfill sites turned up nothing.

A tale of two Rorys

Nineteenyear-old golfing sensation Rory McIlroy recently took his first public relations hit when he declared the Ryder Cup to be nothing more than “an exhibition.” Rory already has one victory The Green on the EuropeBlazer an Tour earlier this year at the Dubai Desert Classic, and many have labeled the curly mopped free swinger as the next big thing. Colin Montgomerie was the first to react to Rory’s statements, but indeed treaded carefully as to not cause a media frenzy. “The Ryder Cup is most definitely not an exhibition,” Monty said. “Having played in it, having experienced the emotion and the stress of it, I can assure you of that. Indeed if I manage to lead Europe to victory next year it will be the greatest achievement of my career. Now look, don’t try to build this up into some sort of big row between me and Rory.” Monty and McIlroy will have plenty of time to work out the debate when they are paired together this week for the first three rounds of the Irish Open. It wasn’t that long ago when a different Rory, Rory Sabbatini, made comments that did in fact cause a media frenzy. After getting overtaken by Woods in the 2007 Wachovia, Sabbatini said, “The funny thing is, after watching him play last Sunday, I think he’s more beatable than ever.” That was just one of many times Sabbatini has made himself look like a jackass. In the final round of the 2005 Booz Allen Classic, Sab-

batini was so annoyed by the slow play of playing partner Ben Crane that he walked behind the green and prepared to take a drop before Crane was given an opportunity to play his approach shot. As soon as Crane’s ball landed, Sabbatini dropped, played his pitch, and walked to the next tee while Crane was still walking up to the green. Sabbatini also has the distinction of being voted “the least favorite playing partner” on tour in a Sports Illustrated poll of tour players. “Twenty-five percent of the guys on tour say the player they wouldn’t want to play with was me,’’ Sabbatini commented. “And

I don’t know 25 percent of the guys on tour, and there’s probably 25 percent I wouldn’t want to play with.” Rory McIlroy’s comments will not even come close to giving him a reputation as bad as Rory Sabbatini’s, but what if the two combined into a super brash golfing hybrid by the name of Rory Maccatini? Only then will either have a chance to take on Tiger, who (two years and two knee surgeries after Sabbatini’s comments) is still nowhere near beatable.

Yoga goes extreme in Vail

Vail Mountaineer


Flowers by Jane

Teva Games marked start of Yoga Slackers YES tour By John LaConte Vail Mountaineer Editor At the Teva Games we saw extreme biking, kayaking, climbing and extreme ‌ yoga? While it looks more like tightrope walking than yoga, the Yoga Slackers have developed a more acrobatic style of the Hindu theistic philosophy, in which they perform the classic yoga poses while suspended on a piece of 1-inch flat tubular webbing (the kind that rock climbers use). They call it a “slack line,â€? hence the name Yoga Slackers. The whole thing looks pretty, well, extreme, which made their demos perfect for the Teva games. “The Teva Games is a great venue for the Yoga Slackers,â€? said slacker Jason Magness, “because we try to get yogis off the mat and athletes into yoga.â€? The Teva Games marked the kickoff of the Yoga Slackers Yoga Extreme Sustainability (YES) tour, in which they bicycle from town to town, promoting Yoga and sustainability in Colorado. Vail was the first stop, and from there they spiral around the state, stopping in Leadville, Glenwood, Aspen, Boulder and finally ending at the 2nd annual Telluride Yoga Festival July 10-12. Eco Expeditions The YES tour is just one adventure in a long line of Yoga Slackers Eco Expeditions. Before hitting Teva they had just wrapped up a Mt. Rainier Expedition, in which they ascended Rainier’s Success Cleaver climbing route (over 12,000 ft of elevation gain), and then skied down the Emmons Glacier to the headwaters of the White River. From there they packrafted back to civilization through strainer choked gravel bar rapids before biking 60 miles back to their cars. In 2008 the Yoga Slackers big journey was a Montana wilderness expedition. Affectionately referred to as the “Four days and four ways to dieâ€? expedition, the slackers climbed Granite peak (12,807 feet, the highest peak in Montana), descended untracked wilderness to the source of the Stillwater river, and made the first descent of a harrowing gorge. They had four brushes with death along the way; climbing a couloir, descending the mountain, descending the river, and a comical and painful bike crash. They now call the close calls the “highlightsâ€? of the trip. YES tour So far there’s been no near death experiences on the YES tour, but the tour just began. As of Tuesday they had biked 72 miles through the Vail Valley and Glenwood Springs, heading through Carbondale toward Aspen. By the time they reach the Telluride Yoga Festival they’ll have biked 1080 miles and completed 108 miles of trail running, all part of their salute to the number 108. The sum of the digits in 108 (1+0+8) is 9, which in Hinduism is said to represent the 9 tattvas. If you divide or multply 108 by 2, the sum of the digits in both

Marijuana charge against Holmes dropped

Pittsburgh prosecutors have dropped a misdemeanor drug charge against Steelers wide receiver and Super Bowl MVP Santonio Holmes. Allegheny County Assistant District Attorney Rachel Newman announced the decision at a court hearing Wednesday. Pittsburgh police say they found three marijuanafilled cigars — or blunts — in Holmes’ car when he was pulled over on Oct. 23. They pulled Holmes over because they were looking for a car similar to the one he was driving. Holmes alerted police to the drugs. Holmes’ attorney argued the traffic stop violated the football star’s rights because the search warrant wasn’t


fifth. Grabsch moved up to third place overall, 48 seconds behind Evans, runner-up at the Tour for the past two years. Defending champion Alejandro Valverde of Spain suffered a big setback, losing 1 minute and 31 seconds to Evans. Previous leader Niki Terpstra of the Netherlands lagged well behind in 114th place of the stage, 5:27 back. “I did not necessarily come to win, but it’s better to lead, for sure,� Evans said. “The track was fast and Grabsch was the best today. But I fear for the Ventoux tomorrow.� Today’s stage is a 96-mile ride from Valence to the Mont Ventoux that features four difficult climbs, including the grueling uphill finish.

They plan a tropical vacation after the U.S. Open and before Amy’s surgery. “I’ve never been this emotional, where if I’m driving alone or what have you, I’ll just start crying,” Mickelson said yesterday. “I had an emotional month, and I don’t know where I will be on the golf course as far as being able to focus. I don’t know that yet.”

Mora: Vick ‘paid his debt to society’

Seattle Seahawks coach Jim Mora says deserves to be reinstated to the NFL, though that second chance apparently wouldn’t come in Seattle. Mora, who coached Vick when he was the Atlanta Falcons’ quarterback, said Wednesday during the Seahawks’ mandatory minicamp: “I believe he’s paid his debt to society.” But Mora said Seattle won’t be adding any quarterbacks. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has not committed to reinstating Vick after he completes his 23-month sentence on July 20 for running a dogfighting ring.

By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Rocky Mountain Mule Days returns to Eagle this weekend with a lesson about the difference between mules and horses. Which is: Mules look relaxed because they are; horses look like they can’t wait to launch you through the hole in the ozone because they can’t. Jerry King runs Rocky Mountain Mule Days. When he pays a compliment about attention to detail he says things like, “It’s like trying to slip daylight past a rooster.� He’s a big fan of mules. People have been riding mules into and out of the Grand Canyon since the 1850s and not one mule or rider has been lost. Theodore Roosevelt was among the first to make the trek. More than 600,000 have followed him. This weekend, King will be among mule aficionados from all over the country for auctions, clinics, seminars and rodeos. “Anything you can do on a horse will be done on a mule,� said King. This is King’s third year to run Rocky Mountain Mule Days at the Eagle County Fairgrounds. “I love the facility, love the area,� he said. King’s a tireless advocate for mules. They’re more sure footed, and not as excitable or flighty a horse, he said. Anything a horse can do, a mule can do, something people will learn at Friday’s events. Last year’s event hosted the world’s first extreme mule saddle race, a timed obstacle course event. “We changed it this year so the mule has to perform normal ranch activities like cutting out a steer from the herd – everything a ranch mule or ranch horse has to perform,� said King. Like all the best things in life, a mule is a hybrid. It’s mama is a horse and its daddy is a jack – as in jackass. “Mules have been brunt of Hollywood jokes, but I’ve sold them for as much as $30,000,� said King. “Last year’s high selling mule was owned by some Vail Valley folks.�

A special benefit roping event for Steve King is Thursday to get things rolling. King, no relation to Jerry King, was horribly injured in a roping accident and spent lots of time in the hospital with internal injuries.

MAFIA LOCAL BANK THEFT TOPS 250K The case is under investigation by the FBI, the U.S. Secret Service, and police in Avon and Eagle. The local bank embroiled in all this said its security systems were not hacked, and its data was not compromised. “We have taken all appropriate measures to validate that our information systems have not been intruded or otherwise breached,” said a bank spokesman. “To that end, we have concluded that all customer data and information maintained by the bank was not compromised. Bank safety procedures, put in place to protect our clients’ account and financial information, worked well and as designed.” Speaking on condition of anonymity, some of the victim businesses said they don’t care who was hacked, they just want their money back. The international crime syndicate stole the money using computer programs that captured user names and passwords, then used that information to access the accounts. It’s still not clear how the cyber thieves gained access to the accounts and who will reimburse the victims. The bank says it’s not responsible, and that FDIC regulations require business customers to notify a business before activity is completed in its account. The business then gets to choose whether or not to move forward with the transaction. Those businesses also deny that their systems were hacked. They say the bank is at fault and

Pitt stop — Brad Pitt tells Russian motorists to slow down Brad Pitt is accustomed to stopping passersby in their tracks. The Hollywood heartthrob’s next job is slowing traffic in Siberia — or so Russian traffic police hope. MOSCOW (AP) — A Russian newspaper reports that cardboard cutouts of Brad Pitt dressed as a traffic cop have been placed by the most dangerous intersections in the city of Omsk. It’s the latest move by authorities in their endless battle against speeding. Traffic accidents in Russia are among the highest in Europe. The campaign seems to be working. Omsk officials say accidents are down as starstruck drivers ease off the gas to gaze at the unusual image. The paper, Argumenty i Fakty, quotes Dmitry Ziryanov, a local official who came up with the idea as saying Pitt is “kind of like a colleague for us.” Rolling (slowly) along . . .

Lexi and “the Fish” were spotted sneaking into a viewing of “Up” last week at the Riverwalk Theatre.

Remember Mike and Ikes? Well how about Mike and Mikes? The two Mikes at Russell’s Steakhouse in Vail are pleased to announce that after an extra-long feeling off season, Russell’s will be opening its doors for the summer season Friday night. It’s about time, guys. We have all missed the great food and great service.

We think its Kristi from Threads. With names like J.Crew, Ben Sherman, Ralph Lauren and Old Navy, Threads has the entire gamut of clothing manufacturers covered. The men’s selection is to die for. Of course they have a large ladies section, but all you guys out there need to stop by Threads and check out the consignment clothing for guys … it’s hot like Kristi’s hat.

Dinner is a GO-GO at the Pantry in Minturn. Stop in to pick up dinner from Ivan for the whole family. Grab a sandwich for lunch, or the famous Morn Dog (chicken and apple sausage wrapped in a whole grain pancake and coated with corn flakes).
