$8M says don’t develop Colorado River Ranch conservation easement could go today By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer

Public hearing today

It’s worth $7.9 million to pay a group of attorneys not to develop a ranch about 50 miles from Vail, according to an appraisal of the deal. The county commissioners could decide today whether to spend $5.7 million for the county’s share of a conservation easement on the Colorado River Ranch, 12 miles north of Dotsero up the Colorado River Road. The commissioners are holding a public hearing this afternoon, beginning at 1:30 p.m., in the Eagle County Building, 500 Broadway in Eagle. The guts of the deal • Great Outdoors Colorado appraiser

The county commissioners may decide today whether to approve spending $5.7 million for the county’s share of a conservation easement on a 1,017-acre ranch 12 miles north of Dotsero. They’re holding a public hearing this afternoon, beginning at 1:30 p.m. in the Eagle County Building, 500 Broadway in Eagle. You’re welcome to attend and offer your opinion. David Peterson’s valuation says the 1,017-acre ranch is worth $13.25 million, or $13,000 an acre. • After the development rights are removed by the conservation easement, it would be worth $5.3 million, the appraisal says. • Therefore, the conservation easement is worth $7.9 million, the appraisal says. • County officials declined to release details of the appraisal that would sup-


port that valuation, but the Eagle Valley Land Trust insists it’s accurate. • The county’s share would be $5.7 million of that $7.9 million, paid through the property-tax-supported open space fund that voters approved in 2002. • The four Missouri attorneys who own the ranch say they’re willing to leave $1 million in the deal, dropping the price of the conservation easement to $6.9 million. They can get up to $375,000 back in state tax credits. Some of the remain-

der could be considered a charitable donation. • The Eagle Valley Land Trust has to raise the money for the other $1.2 million. They’ll ask Great Outdoors Colorado for $600,000. The other $600,000 would come from multiple public and private sources. But the commissioners need to decide quickly, hopefully today, said Cindy Cohagen of the Eagle Valley Land Trust. “These grant cycles are next week, so the window of opportunity might slam shut,” said Cohagen. “There is money out there, but those other parties are waiting to see if Eagle County is going to take the lead.” The $5.7 million funding request to the county is based on the funding capacity [See COLO.

VRD MiniHawks camps kick off . . .


A surprisingly bleak forecast for the world economy pushed stocks to their biggest losses in two months Monday. The World Bank estimated the global economy will shrink 2.9 percent in 2009. It previously predicted a 1.7 percent contraction. Investors began buying up stocks in March on hopes that the economy was poised to begin recovering. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 200.72, or 2.4 percent, to 8,339.01. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 28.19, or 3.1 percent, to 893.04. The Nasdaq Composite index fell 61.28, or 3.4 percent, to 1,766.19.

The Vail Recreation District’s (VRD) Girls Soccer Academy and MiniHawks camp kicked off Monday at Ford Park in Vail. The MiniHawks camps allow young children to explore soccer, baseball, and basketball in a day-program setting. The MiniHawk coaching staff, according to the VRD, is trained to meet the specific needs of young children and is committed to helping them start off on the right foot as they venture into athletics. The MiniHawk camps continue all week; more camps are scheduled for July. Avery Cunliffe photo.

Beav’ interested in film fest Resort offers new venues, funding By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer

315 Capitol St. 328-6936

If the Vail Film Festival is busting at the seams, then Beaver Creek Resort may be able to help — by offering new venues and new money. The idea is to help the festival grow without hurting what it’s been able to do in six years on its home turf in Vail, said Tony O’Rourke, executive director of Beaver Creek Resort Co. Event organizers approached Beaver Creek for help about a month ago, and got a funding offer of $60,000, among other things, O’Rourke said. “We don’t want to harm what the town of Vail has done to help grow the event to date,” O’Rourke said. “(But) I’m really afraid that if we don’t collectively work together, because of facility constraints, we could end up losing the whole show to another area.” Vail’s Commission on Special Events discussed the Beaver Creek offer in a closed session on Friday, but no decisions were made, said Sybill Navas, coordinator of the group, which is funded with tax revenue. The film festival is up for public discussion at the group’s next meeting, which is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, July 1, at Vail’s town hall, 75 S. Frontage Road. Event to expand? “The reality, is that the film festival had some discussions and presented us with an offer of what might happen if the event expanded to both communities,” Navas said. Organizers of the four-day festival dream of being as big as Sundance, that venerable Park City, Utah, event founded by Robert Redford. The Vail Film Festival currently is recognized as one of the Top 10 in the country, said Kaye Ferry, a director on the film festival board. “We’re not there, and we need to be where the resources are,” Ferry said. “Vail needs to step up with more money … or we need someone to sponsor us.” With Vail’s sales tax and other revenues down significantly so far this year, possible cuts may be made to the CSE budget for 2010. Its 2009 budget was close to $700,000 to put on events such as the recent Teva

Mountain Games and the summer farmer’s market. History of collaboration “We’re trying to be a good neighbor and offer a good opportunity,” O’Rourke said. “If it’s busting out of the current facility, we would prefer that it remains in the Vail Valley.” Vail and Beaver Creek have a history of collaborating on events, O’Rourke said. The Vilar Center in Beaver Creek hosts events that are part of the International Dance Festival held at Vail’s Ford Amphitheater. The two resorts also worked together on the 1999 World Ski Championships, he said. “Neither resort could have independently produced the championships. We hope this is a continuation of that,” O’Rourke said. “The bottom line, is that people who come to this area, see it as one destination experience.” An estimated 14,000 folks were involved in the film festival in April this year, which was held at the Vail’s Cascade Resort. Kevin Smith, director of “Clerks,” and Michelle Monaghan, who was in “Made of Honor” and “Gone Baby Gone,” were among the stars in attendance.

Vail says hotel can’t be permanent residence Vail Plaza owner moves to Avon By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer Vail Plaza Hotel owner and developer Waldir Prado is renting a place in Avon after town officials asked him to move out of a three-bedroom penthouse suite in the hotel. Town zoning calls for the unit to available only for fractional use, which is designated real estate commonly bought in increments of up to a month. “From the town’s perspective, he was not in compliance with zoning, so we asked him to come into compliance,” said George Ruther, Vail’s community development director. “The code says you cannot live in a fractional unit. Short-term accommodations are 30 days or less under the code.” Prado said he is happy to comply with town rules, although he is puzzled why he would not be allowed to live in a unit that is vacant otherwise. Many of the fractional units in the new hotel remain unsold, and it is going through Chapter

11 bankruptcy proceedings. “I thought the town council would consider that we are doing a great job for Vail. We are generating over 200 jobs, we are paying sales tax, and we are creating a lot of other revenues to the town,” Prado said. “We thought we could occupy one unit that is sitting there vacant.” Prado said he intends to pay off all creditors as soon as world financial markets get stronger. A global economic downturn was set off in October by a collapse in the sub-prime mortgage lending market. “The hotel is operating extremely well, and soon the markets will come back,” Prado said. “We will pay everybody else off, and we will continue to operate the hotel and the club.” The hotel is not for sale, Prado said. The hotel filed for bankruptcy after Shaw Construction, the general contractor, filed a more than $8 million lien on the property for unpaid bills. At least 200 fractional owners also have filed a civil suit against the hotel.

COLO. RIVER RANCH EASEMENT of all the other funding partners, said Cohagen. If the commissioners decide not to get involved at that level, the owners and the Land Trust will try to fund other sources to make up the difference, Cohagen said. “Given the economic climate, there’s not as much private funding available,” said Cohagen. ‘County might as well buy the Brooklyn Bridge’ Peterson finished his appraisal last month. Eagle County officials released a summary, but not the actual appraisal, saying it’s confidential. That $13.25 million pricetag immediately raised eyebrows, especially in the local real estate industry. The owners could chop it into 28 parcels of 35 acres each, under Colorado law. A local Realtor who helped establish the market for farms and ranches said parcels that size aren’t selling, and that there is no development pressure and no rush. “Eagle County might was well buy the Brooklyn bridge. I think Eagle County is blessed that we don’t have that many 35-acre developments,” said Dick Kesler. “There are no sales that could support that price point. There’s no urgency in any market right now and there isn’t a 35-acre market.” Avon Mayor Ron Wolfe serves on the Open Space Advisory Committee, and has said the price sets a bar for future ranch deals that may not be attainable. “Conservation has its price, everyone knows that. But this price is too high,” said Wolfe. “If you actually tried to sell it now, who would buy it, and at what price?” Still, said Wolfe, “This is an excellent piece of property to conserve.” Stand by your appraiser Peterson is based in Denver and is one of a quartet of appraisers recognized by Great Outdoors Colorado as being qualified to handle this sort of thing, Cohagen said.

He’s been in such crosshairs before. He was criticized for the appraisal of the Gates ranch, another countyfunded open space deal. GOCO had another appraiser check his work and said Peterson did fine. The Colorado State Division of Real Estate also reviewed the Gates file and found everything to be in order, said Cohagen. “It is imperative to get the best, most accurate appraisal,” said Cohagen. Cohagen and the Eagle Valley Land Trust have been working on this for the better part of a year. She says the appraisal is sound. “I have to help raise the money for this and we don’t want an over-inflated appraisal,” she said. “We believe at the Land Trust that the appraisal is consistent with state law, that the process has integrity and has been completed to the highest professional standards.” The plans for the land John Lichtineagger is part of a partnership of four Missouri attorneys who bought the ranch for $10 million from Diane Graham. She bought it from Cordillera for $5 million, who bought it with an eye toward a golf course/cattle ranch. That project never materialized and the development approvals lapsed. The attorneys had wanted to trade it for land near Gypsum owned by lifelong local ranchers Chris and Tina Estes. The plan was to build 800 homes on the Estes ranch. That deal never came together, and the attorneys found themselves with a ranch. Lichtineagger wanted to hang onto it and keep in one big 1,017-acre piece, but his partners wanted their money back out of it. A conservation easement would accomplish both, said Cohagen. “Your kids and grandkids won’t have the opportunity to preserve something like this,” said Cohagen. “Just because the whole market slowed, doesn’t mean it’s not ready to take off again.”

hour, killing at least six people and injuring scores of others as the front end of the trailing train jackknifed violently into the air and fell atop the first. Fire Chief Dennis Rubin said rescue workers treated 76 people at the scene and sent six with critical injuries to local hospitals. The crash, described by officials as a “mass casualty event”, took place around 5 p.m. EDT on the system’s red line, Metro’s busiest. Metro chief John Catoe said the first train was stopped on the tracks, waiting for another to clear the station ahead, when the trailing train plowed into it from behind. Monday’s crash was the third major subway or commuter rail crash in a big city in the past nine months, following a collision in Los Angeles which left 25 people dead and a more recent accident in Boston which injured 50.

election protests. A witness described an “air of sadness� marked by people wailing prayers into the night. Security forces used tear gas and fired live bullets in the air to break up a group of about 200 protesters paying tribute to a young woman whose apparent shooting death was captured on video and circulated around the world, witnesses said. The show of force came as the country’s highest electoral authority, the Guardian Council, acknowledged some irregularities in 50 districts — including more votes being cast than registered voters. But the council insisted the result of the June 12 presidential election was not affected.

Work begins on world’s deepest underground lab

Far below the Black Hills of South Dakota, crews are building the world’s deepest underground science lab at a depth equivalent to more than six Empire State buildings — a place uniquely suited to scientists’ quest for mysterious particles known as dark matter, which is thought to make up nearly a quarter of the mass of the universe. The 4,850 foot-deep site is ideal for experiments because its location is largely shielded from cosmic rays that could interfere with efforts to prove the existence of dark matter, studies of which could give scientists greater insight into the Big Bang explosion believed to have formed the universe.

Obama, citing his smoking woes, signs tobacco law

Lamenting his first teenage cigarette, President Barack Obama ruefully admitted on Monday that he’s spent his adult life fighting the habit. Then he signed the nation’s toughest anti-smoking law, aiming to keep thousands of other teens from getting hooked. Obama praised the historic legislation, which gives the Food and Drug Administration unprecedented authority to regulate what goes into tobacco products, to make public the ingredients and to prohibit marketing campaigns geared toward children. During Monday’s bill signing, Obama focused on how the new law would help OBAMA keep future generations of kids away from the dangerous habit, which for almost 90 percent of smokers began at 18 or younger. “I know. I was one of these teenagers,� he said. “And

so I know how difficult it can be to break this habit when it’s been with you for a long time.�

Craigslist slaying suspect pleads not guilty

A former Boston medical student pleaded not guilty Monday to charges he lured a masseuse he met through Craigslist to a Boston hotel, then bound her, beat her and shot her to death with a gun authorities say he later stashed in a hollowed-out copy of “Gray’s Anatomy�. Markoff is charged in the April 14 shooting of Julissa Brisman, 25, of New York City, and the April 10 armed robbery of Trisha Leffler, a 29-year-old Las Vegas prostitute, at another posh Boston hotel. Authorities say he used anonymous e-mail addresses and prepaid cell phones to set up meetings with the women he met through Craigslist, where they had advertised in its “erotic services� category. Prosecutors have not revealed a motive for the attacks. Markoff was arrested April 20 in Connecticut.

Megan Fox dismisses comparisons between her and Angelina Jolie as the product of a lazy media. The two actresses are both brunettes with tattoos who are known for their candor — and that has been enough for some to proclaim Fox the heir apparent to Jolie’s crown. Fox says the parallels are the product of a lack of media creativity, but adds, “you live with it.� The 23-year-old Fox stars with Shia LaBeouf in the new film “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.� LeBeouf says rumors the two are dating are just that.

Armstrong racks up first win since return . . . Lance Armstrong won the Nevada City Classic on Sunday night, holding off teammate Levi Leipheimer in the challenging one-day race in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Armstrong finished a repeated 1.1-mile circuit through the historic mining town in 1 hour, 28 minutes and 20 seconds, sprinting away from the peloton with about six laps to go on the hilly course. Ben Jacques-Maynes finished 21 seconds behind in second place. Leipheimer, the three-time Tour of California champion, was third, 1 second behind JacquesMaynes. More than 15,000 fans cheered on Armstrong, the seven-time Tour de France winner, in the 49th edition of the Northern California race. Armstrong, who last appeared in the race 19 years ago, only committed to the Nevada City Classic five days earlier as he prepares for another run at the Tour after a 3 1/2 -year absence from cycling. “What a great Nevada City Classic,� Armstrong said in a posting on his Twitter account. “I managed to get the win, Levi Leipheimer was 3rd. HARD race.�

Remembering Sarge and his ROC 550s

The Mountaineer received a lot of comments on Saturday’s cover photo of, from left, Peter Seibert, Bob Parker and Sarge Brown, which was run in honor of the celebration of Sarge on Saturday. In the photo, Sarge is holding a pair of Rossignol ROC 550s, which reminded Mountaineer publisher J.P. of an incident involving those same skis. Christy Sports has always had fabulous end-of-year sales, and in the ‘70s that was still the case. Taking advantage of one such sale, J.P. picked up a pair of said 550s for half price at the end of the season. Early next season, his first time on the skis, he was taking his first turn when the binding came loose and the wayward ski was sent on a course all it’s own, at the whim of gravity. The ski ended up meeting with the business end of the racer shed and coming to a stop. Needless to say, this was before the days of ski stops. It was, evidently, also before the days of fiberglass skis, as J.P.’s brand new 550 was left bent at a near 90-degree angle. Something tells us Sarge had more luck with those skis than J.P. did. Thanks to Vail Resorts and everyone else who helped honor Sarge on Saturday.

unfortunately Sarge and Pete are no longer with us, but Bob Parker is still alive and kicking. The 10th Mountain Division veteran is seen here honoring Sarge at the celebration of his life Saturday.

He has a brain injury, damaged lungs and more complications from two hospitalizations in the intensive care unit. These hospitalizations required multiple procedures.

The money raised will help with the much-needed financial aid.

For more information, contact Debbie at 845-2022. If you can’t attend but would like to help, please send a check payable to the Vail Valley Charitable Fund to PO BOX 1275, Avon, CO 81620.
