Lacrosse brings business Vail Lacrosse Shootout brought more than $2M to Valley last year By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer In 1978, then Vail recreation department employee Moses Gonzalez was having lunch at Bart & Yeti’s when he overheard an interesting lacrosse conversation. A tournament in Aspen wasn’t going well, and the three folks in the next booth over were discussing it. Gonzalez, now the town’s code enforcement officer, decided to jump into the conversation.

“I turned around and said, ‘Why don’t you guys just come here?’” Gonzalez said. Last year, the Vail Lacrosse Shootout brought an estimated $2 million in revenue and 14,000 people to town. The weeklong event starts tomorrow and runs through July 5. “It turned out bigger than anyone ever imagined,” Gonzalez said. “You see lacrosse in the high schools here; you see kids with their sticks, playing.” The event has grown so large that 60 men’s teams and 30 women’s teams are


scheduled to play on 12 fields around the county, from Vail’s Ford Park and Donovan Park to spots in Eagle-Vail, Avon and Edwards. “It’s such a great environment here. It was easier to get to, and the fields were great,” said Jim Soran, co-founder of the event. “It has proven to be a great move for us.” National, local sponsors As the event has grown over the years, so has the number of sponsors, with national sponsors like Merrill Lynch and

Chipotle sharing the stage with Vail sponsors like Vendetta’s and the Tap Room. Various lacrosse industry companies sponsor teams from across the country that descend on Vail for the event. Vendetta’s thinks it’s important to sponsor a men’s elite team of 21-29-yearolds, said John “Popeye” Brennen, a Vendetta’s owner. “Think about all of the dollars that come in from lacrosse. It’s unbelievable,” Brennan said. “We just want to make sure that the community comes [See LACROSSE, page 13]

Gains in homebuilders, retailers and other consumer discretionary stocks led the market sharply higher Thursday. Traders focused on several betterthan-expected earnings reports and welcomed news that the Federal Reserve took the first step toward removing the numerous emergency lending programs it launched last fall at the height of the financial crisis. The third successful Treasury auction of the week helped boost confidence that Washington will be able to raise enough money to fund its economic recovery programs. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 172.54, or 2.1 percent, to 8,472.40. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 19.32, or 2.1 percent, to 920.26. The Nasdaq Composite index rose 37.20, or 2.1 percent, to 1,829.54.

America was shocked Thursday to learn of the deaths of two of it’s most famous celebrities, pop star Michael Jackson and television star Farrah Fawcett. Both died at Los Angeles area hospitals Thursday. Fawcett, 62, passed away at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, nearly three years after being diagnosed with anal cancer. The circumstances surrounding the death of Jackson, 50, death were not immediately clear. He was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m. local time, Capt. Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times. The paramedics tried to resuscitate him and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told the newspaper. Other reports said he suffered from cardiac arrest. AP photos.

By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Negotiators might not hammer out a price for a 1,017-acre conservation easement until Monday afternoon, when the county commissioners are scheduled to vote on it, county officials said Thursday. “We’re working with funding agencies and others trying to come up with a plan,” said John Lichteneagger, one of the ranch’s four owners. “I’m hopeful, but there is no indication as to what the final price will be.” The county commissioners Tuesday sent all sides back to the negotiating table, saying conserving the Colorado River Ranch is a good cause, but that $5.7 million is too much to ask Eagle County taxpayers to contribute. The Eagle Valley Land Trust and the owners arrived at that amount after calculating what other money they could find, and subtracting it from the $7.9 million value the conservation is said to be worth. The owners have backed off that price by $1 million. The commissioners are set to vote on it Monday, during a 1:30 p.m. public hearing at the Eagle County Building. If they approve the deal, the Land Trust will ask Great Outdoors Colorado for at least $600,000. That grant application would be due next Friday. The Land Trust went to that well last year looking for $800,000 for the same project, but were turned away. “We all have lot of questions about the funding and the conservation easement. As we answer those questions, we’re all helping to make this better,” said Lichteneagger. Among those questions is public access, a source of contention in most conservation easement purchases since voters approved the open space tax by 51 votes. “All of Eagle County seems to be interested in access points, especially river access,” said Lichteneagger. The Colorado River Ranch is 12 miles north of Dotsero, about 50 miles from Vail. Three points of public access would be available: A BLM road and parking area on the north, an historic one-room school house near the center to include a rest area, and direct river access on the south side, under a railroad trestle.

Union Pacific Railroad granted a 30-foot easement under its railroad trestle, so the parking lot could be moved down to the river’s edge. The Colorado River winds for two miles through the ranch. Union Pacific’s rail line runs right beside it. The ranch owners volunteered to build the road, parking lot, and fences. Lichteneagger has had the good fortune of working with Union Pacific before. He bought and restored a full sized steam locomotive and 22 miles of track in Missouri, so when it came time to work out a river access plan, he knew someone who knew someone who knew him. One of Union Pacific’s real estate acquisitions executives helped pull together the agreement. Union Pacific e-mailed the form, Lichteneagger hired an engineer to quickly hammer out the details, and within days they submitted their application for the underpass. They received word Monday night that Union Pacific had given the underpass their official full-steam-ahead. He delivered that agreement to the commissioners as Tuesday’s public hearing was beginning. Union Pacific is happy to be part of it, said spokesman Mark Davis. “We worked long and hard to ensure the safety of the people who would be in and around the property,” Davis said. “Once those safety criteria were agreed to, the easement sailed through.”

VVMC to host new cancer scanner ribbon cutting today

PET/CT scanner provides early cancer detection Mountaineer Staff Report VVMC will host a ribbon cutting to celebrate the new PET/CT scanner at Shaw Regional Cancer Center today from 4 -6 p.m. The community is invited to attend the celebration. The PET/CT scanner provides early cancer detection by detecting cancers in specific parts of the body that would ordinarily remain hidden. “PET/CT combines two types of images: one shows that cancer exists, the other shows you where,” says Dr. Wayne Wenzel, Chief of Radiology at VVMC. “The benefit is earlier and more precise detection in addition to giving patients far more personalized treatment plans.” The PET/CT scanner combines two types of imaging: positron emission tomography (PET) and computerized axial tomography (CT). In the PET process, radioactive sugar molecules are injected into the patient. These molecules become concentrated at cancerous cells, indicating where the cancer exists and how large it is. Then the CT scan overlays images of the body’s organs. “Together they give us a detailed, personalized view of each patient’s cancerous areas and tell us how large the area is,” says Wenzel. “Subsequent PET/CT scans can tell us if the patient is responding to their treatment or if they are in remission.” Prior to PET/CT scans being available at Shaw Regional Cancer Center, patients seeking this sophisticated level of imaging would be forced to go to Denver or Grand Junction. Often, the time required to get a PET/CT appointment and results elsewhere is two to three weeks. Vice President of Shaw Regional Cancer Center (SRCC) Joe Deuschle says that patients seeking PET/CT imaging at

SRCC can expect to be scheduled and receive results far more quickly than in other places because everything is done in one location—often times the next day. “I came to Shaw because of the ability to deliver easily accessed, compassionate and collaborative patient care in a technologically superior environment,” says Deuschle. “Having PET/CT at Shaw raises the bar on our technological capabilities and continues to define us a leader in Colorado cancer centers. It’s rare to have a center of this caliber in a community of this size.” The PET/CT scanner was purchased with donations and fundraising efforts by the Shaw Outreach Team.

Dancing, wine, Italian food on tap By Geoff Mintz Special to the Mountaineer The Samaritan Counseling center is throwing its first annual Midsummer Masquerade on July 11. The party will be held at Vail Christian High School and will be featuring live music by Peter Fontanese. The cost is $75 per person, which will benefit the Counseling Center; however, they are not intending that this be a huge fundraising push. The purpose is more for everybody to have a good time and spread awareness about their organization. “It should be the party event of the summer,” said Executive Director Elizabeth Myers. “There will be dancing, food, beer, wine and champagne.” The menu will be Italian-themed specially prepared by an Italian cook. The Samaritan Counseling Center is a communitybased counseling center that offers professional counseling, educational and consultation resources for individuals, families and organizations in the Vail Valley and surrounding counties. Founded in 1997, the Center’s objective is to empower individuals and families to live independent lifestyles free of mental health and addiction. They provide emotional healing, guidance and support through professional, spiritually-integrated, counseling and education. Since it opened its doors, the Samaritan has provided over 13,000 hours of counseling and education for people in the area that wouldn’t be able to afford it otherwise. “The objective is to help people who can’t afford ac-

Special Free HIV testing available this Creekside 9 oz. New York Steak $ with house salad weekend in Vail, Edwards


Red Ribbon Project hosts clinics today, tomorrow By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer The Red Ribbon Project of Eagle County is hosting free HIV testing today and tomorrow. Today they’ll be in the Vail Interfaith Chapel from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.. Saturday they’ll be at the Eagle Care Clinic in Edwards from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. No appointment is necessary, and walk-ins are welcome. You choose between the oral or finger prick tests, and results are usually in less than 20 minutes. “Although HIV infection is completely preventable, every nine and a half minutes someone in the United States is infected with the virus,� said Paula Palmateer with the local Red Ribbon Project. “It’s important for everyone to get the facts, reduce risky behaviors and get tested to learn their HIV status. You have the power to help stop the spread of HIV.� National HIV Testing Day is an annual campaign to encourage early detection and make life-saving treatments possible.

Even with all the testing and help available, almost 40 percent of people with HIV are not diagnosed until they already have developed AIDS, Palmateer said. That can be up to 10 years after they first became infected with HIV. “Finding out whether you are infected with HIV is the first step to improving your health and the health of your partners and family,� she said. More than 1 million people in the United States live with HIV. Despite everything now available, people with HIV still develop AIDS, and more than 14,000 people with AIDS die each year in the United States. The Center for Disease Control estimates that 56,300 Americans become infected each year. Of those Americans, one in four have never been tested and doesn’t know he or she has HIV.

New outpatient operating room expansion planned for VVMC’s Edwards Campus Mountaineer Staff Report Doris Kirchner, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Vail Valley Medical Center announced Thursday the hospital’s plans to add new outpatient operating rooms at the Edwards campus. The addition is in response to expressed community need for convenient down valley operating room (OR) space. The addition will also alleviate OR and parking congestion at the Vail campus. The new operating room expansion will accommodate patients who don’t require overnight stays for their recovery. Procedures done at the Edwards campus will be elective outpatient procedures and may include: orthopedic, gastrointestinal, plastic surgeries and pain management procedures. The expansion will involve reconfiguring a 9,500 square foot space in the Edwards Pavilion that officials say has not been maximized and is projected to be open in summer or fall of 2010. The reconfiguration is estimated to cost $7 million for construction and equip-

ment and will add three operating rooms in addition to recovery and clerical space. Staffing the new OR space will create more labor hours for employees and could create more jobs. “The current outpatient operating room space in Vail is nearing capacity,� says Kirchner. “This expansion will accommodate a large portion of the medical center’s down valley patient base, allow VVMC’s surgical partners the space to recruit new surgeons for a growing clientele and reduce some of the pressure on the Vail campus.� The new OR space is part of a short term expansion and enhancement plan addressing the community’s needs for the next three to five years. Other announcements in the short term plan include: a new level 5 urgent/emergent care facility in Gypsum, announced last week; a reconfiguration of the emergency department at the Vail campus; additional private patient rooms in Vail. Construction for the reconfiguration will be put to bid.

Marketplace offers free wine tasting Sunday Oregon’s Sokol Blosser wines to be featured Mountaineer Staff Report The Wine Shop at Marketplace on Meadow Drive will be hosting a wine tasting on Sunday from noon to 3:30 p.m. during the Vail Farmers’ Market. The featured wines will be Sokol Blosser’s Evolution and Meditrina. “Wine tastings are a great way to expand your horizon and open up your palette. These Sokol Blosser wines are perfect for summer enjoyment and pair well with a variety of light meals,” said Kristen Fannin, sommelier for the Wine Shop at Marketplace on Meadow Drive. Sokol Blosser’s Meditrina is a perfect marriage of Pinot Noir, Syrah and Zinfandel that is juicy, rich and full of fruit. There is a core of rich, lush berry from the Syrah. The Zinfandel provides spice, tannin and structure. And the Pinot Noir brings flowers, earth and elegance. It all adds up to a luscious, juicy, easy-drinking mouthful of red wine that’s both bright and vibrant yet round and soft. Metrina pairs well with pulled pork sandwiches or charbroiled chicken with rosemary mashed potatoes. Sokol Blosser’s Evolution is a white blend with an intense fruit up front and a crisp, clean finish. This unique white is truly a parade of flavors across the palate. The nine grapes tie together perfectly, creating a smooth, layered white wine that can hold its own or stand up to just about any food pairing you dare to serve it with. It

Mystery shoppers choose top award companies Valley’s best receive customer service kudos Mountaineer Staff Report Everyone knows how good it makes them feel when they get good customer service from a local business. Now we know this year’s winners of a primo customer service award in the Vail Valley.

This year’s top recipients in four categories are: 1. Cathy Thompson State Farm Insurance (services) 2. Manor Vail Lodge (lodging) 3. Slifer Designs (retail) 4. La Tour (restaurant) This year, Slifer Designs was awarded the crystal vase, symbolizing the top honor for overall winner of the year with a service quality rating of 98.01 percent. More than 100 people from more than 60 local businesses celebrated the awards with a luncheon on Thursday. Each of the businesses got a rating of more than 90 percent measured by a series of mystery shopper evaluations during the 2008-2009 ski season. “The quality of effort these enterprises put forth is a testimony to the commitment, vision and understanding of the need to serve our customers at a high level,” said Michael Kurz president and chief executive officer of the Vail Valley Partnership. The number of winners this year is remarkable, Kurz said, evidence that members really understand what it takes to compete and win.

Hard,� has died after a brief illness. Publicist Jen Marchand said Saxon died Thursday but did not have other details. He was in his 60s. The Seeds sprang up in California, and their garageband sound with Saxon’s distinctive vocals became a favorite of the flower power generation. Another hit single of 1967 was “Can’t Seem to Make You Mine� and their song “Mr. Farmer� was included in the soundtrack for the movie “Almost Famous.� The Mick Jagger-influenced vocals by Saxon (born Richard Marsh) dominated the sound and in turn influenced later punk rockers. “All the bikers around San Diego thought the Seeds were apocalypse, then,� famed rock critic Lester Bangs wrote in “The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock & Roll.� “I recall one hog-ridin’ couple ... who didn’t take the Seeds’ first album off their turntable for three solid months.� Saxon had recently moved to Austin, where he played with his new band, Shapes Have Fangs. He had been planning to perform this summer with the California ‘66 Revue, a tour featuring a lineup of California bands from the 1960s.

may come to a full vote on cap and trade legislation Friday. Critics of the Waxman-Markey bill say that the plan will destroy the discipline of economics. Under the system being proposed, the government would set a cap on the total amount national carbon emissions. Companies would then have the option of selling their allotted permits to other companies, or conversely they could buy up additional permits to suit their needs. Overtime, the cap would be lowered to further reduce carbon emissions. Proponents of the bill claim that it would cost each American household $125 a year, about the cost of a postage stamp everyday. Critics argue that the estimate is a one-year snapshot of taxes that will extend forever, and that the analysis does not consider the cost after 2020, when the more aggressive restrictions kick in. The report warns that restricting the carbon emissions of corporation’s, as is attempted by this legislation, may result in the largest tax increase in American history.

House Democrats push cap and trade to curb climate change

They began implementing that strategy last month on an energy bill. In response, Democrats hired a speed reader to consolidate the information. This has sparked outrage among several conservative grass roots organizations such as Let Freedom Ring, which announced an initiative urging members of Congress to sign a pledge to read and give citizens an opportunity to read all legislation. Colin Hanna, president of that organization said, “Legislation has become so complex, you can really make the argument the system the framers devised is broken.

Colo. Job loss possible as Ritter looks for 10 percent budget cut

In an effort to close the $384 million state budget gap, Colorado Governor Bill Ritter said that he has directed state department heads to look for whole programs that can be cut, and layoffs are possible, the Denver Post reports. The cuts should be focused on “eliminating the least efficient and effective programs, rather than continuing to shave resources from existing programs,” according to a memo from Ritter’s budget director. Ritter would like to have the details sorted out by August and present a plan to the legislature’s Joint Budget Committee. It would require a vote by the full legislature to make the cuts official.

Russell Simmons finds a new lady

The New York Post is reporting that hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons has found a new squeeze. Simmons didn’t waste much time replacing his grapefruit heiress girlfriend Julie Henderson with French actress/model Noemie Lenoir. The two were “making out like teenagers” at an after-party, then snuck off to the bathroom together, the report said.

“protection” operation. The chairman did not elaborate, refusing to answer any questions about who told him how to run his committee, which resulted in a pass for the left-wing group. ACORN’s leaders have welcomed a congressional probe, consistently denying any wrongdoing. They did not immediately respond to the story.

Politicians call for SC governor to resign

A day after his stunning confession that he cheated on his wife with a woman in Argentina, a chastened Gov. Mark Sanford sought to do damage control Thursday at home with his family while many politicians urged the South Carolina leader to resign. Fellow Republicans issued sharp calls for the disgraced Sanford to step down — a move he indicated he was not considering. And at least one campaign donor was drafting a letter asking for his money back. One county GOP leader said the governor “talked about how our leaders have stepped away from our core values, and said one thing on the campaign trail or out in the public and did something different in the background.” Glenn McCall, a local representative to the Republican National Committee, said the GOP “can recover from this if we hold him accountable and the governor does the right thing and resigns for the sake of the party.” Sanford emerged briefly Thursday from his family’s home on Sullivans Island, off the coast from Charleston, and rolled down the window of his car to talk. Asked if he planned to resign, he shook his head no.

NTSB: Metro signal system didn’t detect test train LENOIR

Conyers drops ACORN investigation

The Washington Times reports, House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. has abandoned his initiative to investigate improprieties by the liberal activist group ACORN, saying “powers that be” put the kibosh on the idea. Mr. Conyers, Michigan Democrat, earlier challenged leaders of his own party by requesting hearings on accusations the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN) has committed crimes ranging from voter fraud to a thug-like

The signaling system for the Washington-area transit agency failed to detect a test train stopped in the same place as one that was struck during a deadly crash this week, federal investigators said Thursday. The National Transportation Safety Board’s test results indicate the oncoming train involved in Monday’s crash that killed nine could have lacked information that another train was stopped on the tracks ahead. A statement by the NTSB did not say whether investigators think the problems were occurring before the crash, which injured dozens. Investigators are trying to understand how the train control system was functioning when a train plowed into another that was stopped, resulting in the deadliest crash in the rail system’s 33-year history. The control system provides critical information to trains such as [See THE UPDATE, page 13]

Perry ties course record with 61 at Travelers Kenny Perry shot a 61 to tie the course record and take a two-shot lead after the first round of the Travelers Championship on Thursday. Perry, who has finished in the top-10 seven times at this tournament, shot a 29 on the front nine, and had no bogeys. He flirted with a 59, before making par on the final two holes. “I was looking for that magical number,” Perry said. “I thought I could do it today. It was definitely in the back of my head. I was definitely trying to get it done.” Over 100 golfers shot under par, taking advantage of light winds and the soft greens left by the same rains that plagued the U.S. Open. Charles Warren and Paul Goydos each shot 7-under par 63s to tie for second place. They also played bogeyfree rounds. Goydos had birdies on three of his final four holes, while Warren putted for birdie 16 times. “Whoever the superintendent is has done an unbelievable job getting the golf course ready given the amount of rain you’ve had, Warren said. “So, I think there will be low rounds all week…I think 59 is a possibility.” Australian Greg Chalmers had eight birdies, six over his final eight holes, and finished tied at 6-under with Spencer Levin, Boo Weekley and Tag Ridings. “Sometimes on this golf course, you get on a roll,” Chalmers said.

Weekley started out on the 10th hole and birdied his first six. “I wish I could have kept the string going,” he said. “We hit a lot of good putts out there and hit a lot of good shots. We just made two mistakes.” Ridings had the shot of the day, acing the par-3, 11th hole. He used a 9-iron from 154 yards out, to give the tournament its first hole-in-one since 2007, when both Craig Perks and Bo Van Pelt accomplished the feat. But the day belonged to Perry, who has one other 61 in his career, at the 2003 Colonial. On Thursday, he was 7 under after 10 holes, and said that’s when he began the think about a sub-60 round, something that’s only been accomplished three times on the PGA Tour. “I thought, with the eagle holes coming up…I really felt I had a shot at it,” he said. Perry is making his 21st appearance at the tournament and is a fan favorite. Chants of “Let’s go Kenny,” greeted him on the back nine, and spectators erupted at the 15th hole when Perry made the 3-foot birdie putt that put him at 9-under par. Perry is the fifth player to post a 61 at TPC River Highlands, joining Kirk Triplett (2000), Phil Mickelson (2001), Scott Verplank (2001) and Brad Faxon (2005) in the record book.

Venus Williams, Safina advance at Wimbledon Even on one good leg, Venus Williams is tough to beat at Wimbledon. The five-time champion wore a strap on her left knee Thursday but still advanced to the third round by beating Kateryna Bondarenko 6-3, 6-2. The tournament favorite, Williams has been hampered by knee trouble in the past, but there was no indication of a problem this week until she walked onto sunny Court 1 bandaged from mid-calf to mid-thigh. Williams let out a yelp when she appeared to pull up on a backhand in the third game, perhaps because of the knee. Otherwise she moved across the grass freely, charging forward to pounce on short balls. She won 17 points at the net to two for Bondarenko. Williams was coy about the reason for the tape. “Just for support,” she said twice in response to questions. Pressed about what was wrong with her knee, she said: “What happened was that I needed some support, and then I went and got the support, and then I wore it in the match. I’ll be wearing it in doubles, too. So it’s working out. I mean, I think all the players might start wearing it because it’s so supportive.” Top-ranked Dinara Safina is a step closer to her first Grand Slam title after beating Rossana de Los Rios of Paraguay 6-3, 7-5 in the second round at Wimbledon. The 23-year-old Russian never faced a break point Thursday and took the first set with a hard forehand down the line. She wrapped up the match with a crosscourt backhand. Safina lost in the final of the Australian Open and French Open this year, but has never been past the third round at Wimbledon.

to the table and does whatever it can to sponsor these teams, because we can’t afford to lose it.” With lacrosse still growing in popularity across the country, it’s more likely that the tournament will continue to grow. The Shootout has grown rapidly in recent years, fueled by lacrosse growing an estimated 20 percent per year in the last few years, the fastest growing high school sport in the country. “The recruiting is moving to where they’re looking to the western players more and more,” said Soran, who is also head coach at Regis High School in Denver. “Local players have gone on to do very well.” Adding to the excitement, the University of Denver just hired Princeton lacrosse coach Bill Tierney, who took his team to six national championships in the last 20 years. Tierney could come to town for the Shootout as well, Soran said. Kids love it “It grabs you, unlike basketball, where you have to have the height to play,” Soran said. “Once kids start playing it, they love it.” Battle Mountain High School in Eagle County has a team, and there’s a Team Colorado as well, which is expected to recruit players from the tournament. In total, more than 60 teams will compete in the weeklong event, including eight “grand masters” teams, over 50; 12 “super masters” teams over 40; eight “masters” teams over 30; about 20 “elite” teams over 21; and 16 “elite” women’s teams. “You get the top collegiate players, and post-collegiate players who are playing professionally,” Soran said. “For them, this is just a great adventure, and it’s awfully good lacrosse when they get together.”

when to stop or slow down. The moving train was operating in automatic mode, which means it was primarily controlled by a computer, although there is evidence the operator applied the emergency brake. On Thursday, investigators found streak marks on the tracks for about 125 feet leading up to the crash site, indicating “heavy braking.” The operator of the struck train told NTSB investigators Thursday that his car was running in manual mode at the time of the crash. The operator, whose name hasn’t been released, said he was waiting for a train in front of him to clear when he felt a hard push to his train from behind. The NTSB also announced that it had recovered data recorders from the struck train; none were found on the striking train. The NTSB declined to answer further questions.

Don’t feed the bears . . . When humans feed bears, wildlife experts say, the bears lose their fear of humans and can become nuisances. NEWPORT, Ore. (AP) — Karen Noyes often fed the black bears that came to her home near the Oregon coast. Then things got out of hand. One hungry bear stormed a neighbor’s barn and killed 60 turkeys. Another got stuck in a doggie door. Noyes asked wildlife officers to help remove the bears, but it was too late. Now, they’re all being chased from the rural area near Yachats as authorities try to restore the peace. The 61-year-old Noyes was convicted of harassing wildlife and sentenced Thursday to three years probation. Judge Thomas Branford also ordered her to stay away from her home and a seven-mile stretch of Yachats River Road for three years, beginning Aug. 31.
