Rivers roaring right now Eagle, Roaring Fork rivers running way above average Mountaineer Staff Report The general assumption is that high rivers are good for rafting, bad for fishing. But Pete Mott of Trout Trickers doesn’t see it that way. As of Friday, the Eagle River was running at 2190 cubic feet per second (cfs). The median rate for that river on that date over the last 9 years, according to the USGS, is 867 cfs. Down valley, the Roaring Fork was running at 5280 ccf Friday, as compared to a median 3200 cfs on that day over the last 37 years. “It’s not ideal,” says Mott. “But a few years ago we were complaining that it was too low at this time of year. I’m still pulling 20 fish a day out of the rivers so I can’t complain.” Local fisherman Michael Paderewski of Paderewski Fine Art in Beaver Mott says the water’s a little off color, but Creek enjoys the Eagle River last weekend. As of Friday, the Eagle that makes it easier to sneak up on the fish. River was running nearly 60 percent higher than the median level over And you can use a heavier line, which also the last 9 years. Mark Sassi photo. makes things easier.

“Heavier lines make it easier to cast and save your flies,” he says. Late season fishing boom As you’ve probably noticed by now, the monsoon season made our way to the valley a little early this year. And forecasters are saying we’re in for a moist remainder of the summer, as well. That means the water levels won’t drop as dramatically as they usually do around late July and August, and the water will stay cooler. And that means the fish will be happier and hungrier. “I’m loving these high waters,” said local fisherman Michael Paderewski on a recent fishing day. “I’ll be out here all summer.” Mott expressed similar sentiments. “I expect we’ll have a pretty tremendous late summer fishing season,” said Mott. “I’m excited about it.”

Vail Daily alters town of Gypsum ad, switches out Mountaineer logo Mountaineer Staff Report

$4M coming for Eagle-Vail Riverview renovation By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer Eagle County is halfway to $4 million to upgrade a low-income housing project in Eagle-Vail. The Colorado Housing and Finance Authority awarded $4 million in tax credits. Money that will be used to renovate Riverview Apartments. The county was one of the few entities to be awarded the credits during this round of the program. CHFA awards tax credit allocations through a competitive process three times a year. Now that they have them, the tax credits must be sold to investors to raise the money. Once thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done, the money can only be used for hard construction costs to renovate. Housing and Development Director Alex Potente says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only one step, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will now be working diligently on finding an investor and a lender, as well as preparing a detailed renovation plan for the project,â&#x20AC;? said Potente. Riverview Apartments is 72 units of low income housing and is Eagle Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only federally-subsidized housing complex. The rent that tenants pay is based entirely on their reported income. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s housing department is also after up to $1 million in federal stimulus money, $10,000 to $15,000 per unit, as well as a Community Development Block Grant for approximately $432,000. Riverview could use an upgrade. The cedar shake shingles have been on the buildings since the 1970s and need constant repair. The high-energy doors and windows installed a few years back are fine, but insulation in the walls and ceilings is theoretical. The roofs are new. The vision is to improve energy efficiency with insulation and possible solar panels on the roofs, do some landscaping to increase and improve common areas, and create some play areas for the kids. As for the federal stimulus money, this is the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second shot for Riverview. Back in February they were one of 26 Colorado counties that submitted grant applications. Four were selected and Eagle County was not one of them. 30 percent rule Riverview was built in the 1970s to house low-income workers. Rents are based on each tenantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s income level, and they pay no more than 30 percent of their reported pay. The federal government subsidizes the difference between that 30 percent and the market rate for each apartment.

Eagle County was awarded $4 million to renovate Riverview Apartments, the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only federallysubsidized low income housing project. County Commissioner Jon Stavney, right, recently toured the 72-unit project and spoke with residents like Annette Bonnillas, left. Avery Cunliffe photo.

Riverview tenants have to fall below certain income thresholds to be eligible to live there, although there is no upper income limit. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also designed to be transitional housing. Two Riverview residents recently moved into Habitat for Humanity homes. Low income in Eagle County is $64,000 for a fourperson household, according to the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s area median income statistics on record with Housing and Urban Development, the federal agency that handles Riverview. In Eagle County, the area median income for a fourperson household is $86,600, according to those HUD statistics. Up to nine people can live in a three-bedroom apartment, according to Debra Pompey with the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority. Families also get a break on their rent of $480 per child, said Pompey. Seniors get subsidies for their medical expenses. Families in which all adults work get deductions for childcare expenses. Rents are calculated on a sliding scale - the higher your income the higher the percentage you are required to pay, said Pompey. Income increases cannot get you kicked out of Riverview, said Pompey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you qualify when you move in, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get kicked out unless you violate the lease,â&#x20AC;? said Pompey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making enough money that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not eligible for a subsidy, you have to pay the full amount of your rent.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $1,252 for a two-bedroom apartment, and $1,491 for a three bedroom.

Flight Days takes off in Eagle By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer

Welcome back summer clients. New location, same great haircuts.

Jim and Janice, Owners

926-4247

In Riverwalk ~ Edwards across from Kitchen Collage.

No appointments necessary

Hours M-F 9:30-6, Sat 9:30-4, Closed Sun.

Eagle Town Park is the center of attention down valley this weekend as Eagle’s Flight Days rolls into town. Most events are free, including the concerts, and if you’re in the vicinity of the Centennial Stage, you’re in the right neighborhood. The festivities get a change of venue Sunday afternoon for pool polo at the Eagle pool and ice rink. The Flight Days centerpiece is the parade, 10 a.m. today down Broadway in Eagle. As always, the last entrant in the parade is the town’s street sweeper because one of the last entrants are horses and all that they entail and leave behind – if you know what we mean and we think you do. Saturday kicks off with the Lions Club pancake breakfast. Thee Flight Days auction follows the parade at 11:30 a.m. at the Eagle Town Park Centennial Stage. Auction items include rounds of golf, guided fishing trips, lodging packages and a variety of other items. The auction proceeds offset Flight Days expenses. Last year’s auction raised approximately $8,500, about one-third of the annual operating expenses. The chili cookoff fell by the wayside this year for the apple bake off, which makes sense since this is an American event put together mostly by moms. You pony up a few dollars and taste the apple-related stuff these American moms made. The whole thing is set to music. Local legend Pat Hamilton takes the stage at 3 p.m., the young country musicians in Too Young to Know at 5:30 p.m. and T Minus 5 at 8 p.m. WECMRD is hosting Sunday’s pool polo. You can use any sort of flotation device you want and play water polo in the Eagle pool. Run for the Future This year’s Run for the Future is set for early Sunday morning. It’s a memorial for Jake Brock, the Eagle

Strength.

Valley High School grad who was killed in an automobile accident by a drunk driver. You can register in person at Alpine Bank in Eagle, US Bank in Gypsum, and Maximum Fitness through June 27. Of course, you can also register Sunday morning before the race begins at 7 a.m. Registrations will be accepted at the race site in downtown Eagle on race day up to 20 minutes before each scheduled event. Porchlight Players hit the stage The Porchlight Players Summer

‘Martini glass,’ bronze spire to anchor new Solaris plaza

Vail Mountaineer

at

Developer: New social space to be ready next summer By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer A “martini glass” with bubbles that change color over a 12-hour-period will be the signature art piece in the plaza of the new Solaris condominium and retail complex in Vail. The sculpture illustrates the importance of water and snow to making Vail so successful, said Lawrence Argent, the same artist who created the “Big Blue Bear” in Denver, a three-story tall blue animal who peers into the windows of the Colorado Convention Center. “I’m interested in the fact that water is the livelihood of Vail,” Argent said. “It’s a connection of the people who visit, and their transient nature, with the liquid nature of water, an element that connects us all.” Fire and water On the other side of the plaza will be a 22-foot-high bronze spire with a fire roaring inside. The two pieces are expected to draw visitors to the space, which is also to include a skating rink and lots of outdoor seating areas where folks can congregate. “When you’re underneath it, you’ll think the heavens and the blue sky are dropping gold into Vail,” Argent said. “Like with the water droplet, we have the fire, too.” Solaris developer Peter Knobel agreed to provide $1.1 million in public art pieces when the project was approved as part of Vail’s Art in Public Places program, said Leslie Fordham, director of the program. “They’ve more than fulfilled it with what they’re commissioning with Lawrence (Argent),” Fordham said.

Condos to open in April Solaris is being built on the site of the old Crossroads complex just west of the Vail Village parking structure. New condo owners are expected to move in next April, and the retail arm of the complex will open next summer, said Craig Cohn, a spokesman for the project. “It will be a great meeting place that doesn’t really exist right now,” Argent said. “It’s a step forward, culturally and socially because of the way it will bring people into the plaza.” About 500 workers are currently at the site every day, Cohn said, a number expected to jump up to 800 or so in coming months. The site will include a new movie theater, a bowling alley and plenty of new shopping. About 60 percent of the commercial space is leased, Cohn said.

Understanding Auctions

Real estate auctions have become the talk of the local real estate market over the past several months. Several local companies have formed auction divisions or partnerships with national firms to promote the process locally. Hoffman West Real Estate has joined forces with JP King Auctions, a company with a 95 year history in real estate auctions. There are basically two types of auctions, “absolute” where the property absolutely sells to the highest bidder at a specific time and date and “reserve” where a minimum bid is established by the Seller with the Seller having the right to accept or decline any and all bids. Reserve does not mean a guaranteed sale, absolute does.

Surround yourself in style During our Hot Tub Trade In Days Don’t delay, see one of our leisure lifestyle professionals today and get all the details.

It’s important to know the difference because the public reception to these types of auctions is vastly different. Regardless of the type, auctions represent a unique opportunity for Buyers and Sellers in a changing market. If you are a Buyer or Seller and would like more information on auctions, feel free to give us a call.

Jon Kedrowski had been at the bottom of Mount McKinley for less time than it takes. After climbing one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tallest mountains in near record time, he was resting and handing out questionnaires to climbers

and tourists and anyone else willing to help a guy out doing research for his doctorate degree in geography. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to get a handle on who would travel thousands of miles to Denali National Park, to spend days slogging through the ice and snow, risking their lives to labor to the top Mount McKinley. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll receive nothing for their effort - no money and no glory. You know, people like him. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to figure out who they are and what makes them tick, then heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll write his doctoral dissertation about it. So, before his heart beat could return to its normal, glacial rate, an agitated park ranger came by and asked him to help haul a heart attack victim off Mt. McKinley, which was convenient because he was standing at

its base and had his climbing boots handy. The crew hiked six miles almost straight up in about two hours. They left more than 150 glowing wands behind them as they climbed, so they could find their way back down, and to make sure they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall into a crevasse or otherwise mess up Jonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to gather research by dying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were sticking them everywhere,â&#x20AC;? he said. The heart attack victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name was Curt, he was climbing with a medical doctor, and was fine, or as fine as someone could be near the top of one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tallest mountains when his heart decided to go on strike. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That sort of thing happens all the time up there,â&#x20AC;? Jon said. Apparently, not everyone who tries to climb Mt. McKinley has the resting heart rate of a glacier and less body fat than a celery stalk, like Jon. Jon learned through research and personal experience that it takes all kinds to climb mountains, including well educated physicians, and that if you head up a mountain schlepping two oxygen tanks, a box of pharmaceuticals, a blood pressure cuff and a sled, they get heavy. Coming down is much less labor intensive. As it turns out, Curt is in the majority. No, most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suffer heart attacks. Most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reach the summit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The climbing season runs from April to July,â&#x20AC;? said Jon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About 1,200 people a season try to climb it. About half make it.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no shame in that. Mt. McKinley is the highest mountain in North America, and one of the Seven Summits, the highest peaks on each of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven continents. It rises 18,000 feet from its base to the summit, the winds rage 100 mph and the temperature hits 45 below zero. It was zero when Jon summitted on May 23. It was the same temperature when he started back up to help rescue Curt. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on a full ride scholarship to Texas State University, the top geography school in the country. The questionaire asks people how they define success in mountaineering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before they start, success means reaching the top,â&#x20AC;? Jon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other reasons pop up once they start, and change completely if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the summit.â&#x20AC;? High on hoops If you climb in this area, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably seen Jon. He was an All State basketball player at Eagle Valley High School and climbed 14ers to train, or for something to do. He and Eagle Valley teammate Bob Pietrack are running the Eagle Valley Basketball Academy next week. Your kids will learn the fundamentals of basketball and life.

Fort Lewis College basketball assistant coach Bob Pietrack will be back in Eagle County for the Eagle Valley Basketball Academy. Pietrack was an All State athlete with Eagle Valley. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be joined by another former Eagle Valley standout, Jon Kedrowski. The camp runs June 29-July 2.

thing Jon knows about by climbing them all his life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll talk about the climb, how tough it can be, and about overcoming obstacles,â&#x20AC;? Jon said. Kedrowski and Pietrack played on Eagle Valley High School teams that twice advanced to the state finals. Both went on to play college basketball, Kedrowski at Valparaiso and Pietrack at Fort Lewis. Pietrack is on the Fort Lewis coaching staff and handles the recruiting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no coincidence that Fort Lewis has won its conference title and advanced deep into the playoffs every year since he joined the staff. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re returning next week to host the fifth Eagle Valley Basketball Academy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity to stay involved in our home town,â&#x20AC;? said Pietrack. A big chunk of the money goes to a scholarship fund they started last year for student/athletes from area high schools. To be eligible, you have to be a two-sport athlete with good grades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that they take care of business in the classroom,â&#x20AC;? Jon said. Eagle Valley basketball standout Cooper Adams won it this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to give something back to the high school athletic program, and decided this is one way we could do it,â&#x20AC;? Jon said.

LETTERS

Boater trespasser responds to incident with Avon police Editor’s note: On Wednesday we ran an article about Avon resident Kathy Ryan being cited for trespassing after sailing her boat on Nottingham lake. Below is her response. E-mail your comments to letters@vailmountaineer.com

I respectfully submit to you my opinion, experience and concern. The hard issues I commented on at the City Council meeting Tuesday are: 1. While in my boat I was not an “unauthorized motor vehicle” as signage in the park indicates. 2. When government is choosing to impose rather secretive and unposted regulations, why should I be so paranoid and narcissist to think that someone yelling on the lake was speaking to me? 3. When I finally (two boys under the age of 10 paddled out to my craft and asked why I was wanted off the lake) understood that the recreation employee was yelling from the shore at me, I paid attention. When I thought I heard her ask for my “numbers” I did a jybe and flashed my Colorado licensing number, conspicuously and proudly displayed on my Super Snark. IMHO, a very cooperative gesture on my part. How was I to know that that was not the number she was referring to? 4. Sailboats require wind as propulsion. When asked to come to shore I maintained my tack in a straight line to the shore. The Officer was asking that I sail into the wind. 5. Two officers were sent to reprehend my alleged criminal activity. My hostile interaction was actually conversation. I assured them had I known about the $12 fee, I would have purchased same. And that I would purchase the license. But the need for authorization was not posted. 6. The broken record continued: “it is posted in the boat rental building.” My frank reply was that it was not in a conspicuous place, and that I was NOT an unauthorized motor vehicle as “clearly posted.” 7. The officer shared that he was ‘embarrassed’ but “obliged” to give me a ticket. “Why not a warning?” I asked, “I have the intent to purchase the license.” He apologized, but said that it was his “directive.” I sat quietly while he wrote the ticket, unhappy but quiet. If “everyone” knew about this regulation when I purchased my license, why was my licensing number seven? I was the 7th person out of a population of over 6,000 Avon residents not to mention the adjacent community residents who also enjoy the lake in their float tubes, rafts, kayaks who complied with this regulation. And, living on the lake I can guantee in excess of, and minimally 50 various non-motorized boats floating on Nottingham. WHY was I singled out? Over zealous city employees wanting to discipline rather than work in cooperation with the taxpayer. is the answer. In speaking with the managers of the Recreation

department a rhetorical question was posed by the bureaucrat “how will we regulate use of the lake?” An interesting philosophical position given that regulation in the United States is reactionary. And, having been a former bureaucrat myself, I know that there is subjective and objective application of rules and regulations. When trying to control us “wild and crazy taxpayers” it is considerate to post and make public the rules you intend to enforce. Local government is kind enough to conspicuously post to “not spit in the drinking fountain” (conventional knowledge would indicate not to spit, but OK … if you must advise me). Why would local government choose to not conspicuously post boating regulations they intend to impose. I’ll concede, perhaps it’s an oversight. But regulators you have called me to task. I must appear on a work day, in court for criminal trespassing on property which I am part owner of. Property which is also my front lawn, and which I daily volunteer to help to maintain Police Department, Recreation department: You are kind enough to conspicuously post “unauthorized motorized vehicles not allowed.” Why would you not conspicuously post “unauthorized boating not allowed?” That would at least direct me to find out about authorized boating. The larger umbrella issue is local governments interpretation of “hostile.” Theoretically, Avon is historically known for sheep, lettuce, rail traffic and 10th Army Division. Must I check my shearers before entering a public business? Must I shower before attending church? May I eat ice cream in a blue shirt near the train tracks? By demanding that a taxpayer not engage in conversation with the police officer or police chief, and sheepishly (no pun intended given Avon’s history) submit to unposted regulation or be regarded as hostile is this: Laws written in the late ‘40s are still on the books. They are unposted, just as current, and I might add outdated water use regulations are. Should I live in fear that an ambitious regulator (police department called upon by the recreation department) might pull out of the archives one of those irrelevant regulations, and instead of warning me that he ‘intends’ to implement the regulation and I should be thoughtful about my activities I will instead be ticketed and in these economically trying times sent, at the taxpayers expense to the criminal court system. My experience is that Avon is becoming a police state. Is it because the average age of the Avon citizen is 28.6 years of age (lower than the national average concentration of youthful adults) that the regulators are afraid of chaos? How will the young in age, young in heart be kept in their subjective parochial line. My experience is that the taxpayer (the sheep) may be kept in line (regulated) via intimidation, submission, and coercion for victimless, unposted, alleged crime. Kathy Ryan, Avon

THE UPDATE ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

States borrowing from Feds to pay unemployment benefits

The rise in jobless claims has been so severe that several states are being forced to borrow from the U.S. treasuring in order to continue making payments, reports CNBC. Fifteen states have completely depleted their unemployment insurance funds and are now looking to the federal government for help. The National Employment Law Project is saying that a record 30 states are expected to have to borrow up to $17 billion by next year. The root of the problem is that state-run unemployment programs are usually financed with payroll taxes by employers on each worker. But, the funds’ tax revenues are falling while benefit demands are rising.

President trying to change constitution (in Honduras)

Yahoo News is reporting, Honduras President Manual Zelaya is attempting to revamp the constitution of that country, which would restructure the system to one resembling that of leftist Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. The details of the restructuring are not certain, but it has received the backing of Chavez and Fidel Castro. The referendum, which is up for public vote, is being opposed by the Congress and Supreme Court of Honduras and would strengthen the authority of the president. Voting was halted by the military, which is given with the responsibility of distributing voting material by law. The referendum has been well received by the impoverished population and could lead to another empowered dictator in that region.

Clinton visits with Argentine

One week after surgery to repair a broken right elbow, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday had not resumed a full work schedule at the State Department, officials said. Her spokesman, P.J. Crowley, told reporters that Clinton, who broke her arm in a fall at the State Department on June 17, was keeping an “aggressive schedule,” including meetings at the White House on Thursday and Friday. He also said she was doing “a

significant amount” of her work from home, including making official phone calls. On Friday she spoke from home by phone with the foreign minister of Argentina, Crowley said, and she met at the State Department with Crown Prince Sheik Salman bin Hamad Al-Khalifa of Bahrain. Clinton had surgery on June 19. Afterward the State Department said doctors told her she was expected to recover without lasting damage to her arm. No timetable for a full recovery has been made public.

Sanford won’t resign

Politico is reporting that Gov. Mark Sanford will has no plans to resign his office in the wake of the public revelation of an affair with an Argentinean women. “I remain committed to rebuilding the trust that has been committed to me over the next 18 months, and it is my hope that I am able to follow the example set by David in the Bible — who after his fall from grace humbly refocused on the work at hand,” Sanford said in a statement. “By doing so, I will ultimately better serve in every area of my life, and I am committed to doing so.” Politico has also raised questions about whether the numerous rendezvous to Argentina were funded with taxpayer dollars. At least three trips to Argentina were paid for with state funds, which the governor has defended as pertaining to state business. Nevertheless, Sanford has indicated that he will reimburse the state for those trips. A Rasmussen Reports survey of South Carolinians showed that 46 percent believe he should resign while only 39 percent said the governor should stay.

New details raise more questions in Jackson death

New information has emerged surrounding the sudden death of pop icon Michael Jackson on Thursday. The Sun is reporting that a 911 call was placed from within Jackson’s home indicating that a 50-year-old man was unconscious and is not breathing. It is not yet clear who placed the call. Medics attempted to revive the King of Pop on the way to the Hospital to no avail. Jacko’s family was informed and rushed to his bedside, as weeping fans gather outside the hospital, some screaming, “you’ve got to save him!” Sister Latoya was seen running into the hospital sobbing after Jackson had

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 â&#x20AC;&#x153;protectionâ&#x20AC;? operation. The chairman did not elaborate, refusing to answer any questions about who told him how to run his committee, resulting in a pass for the left-wing group. ACORNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders have welcomed a congressional probe, consistently denying any wrongdoing. They did not immediately respond to the story.

Conyers pleads guilty to bribery

Freep.com reports Detroit City Council President Pro Tem Monica Conyers pleaded guilty Friday to conspiracy to commit bribery.

Conyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; husband, U.S. representative John Conyers, made headlines on Thursday when he conspicuously dropped the congressional investigation into improprieties by the left-wing action group ACORN.

In the scene, Bruno humiliates Latoya by joking about Michael while they both eat sushi off a Mexican immigrant.

Obama may not let some prisoners Git Mo-ving

Armstrong in back seat in Astana’s Tour lineup Seven-time champion Lance Armstrong will return to the Tour de France in the unfamiliar role of support rider after his Astana team chose 2007 winner Alberto Contador as its leader for the race. Although the American will be given a secondary role at the July 4 start, Tour and Armstrong fans know that anything could happen during the three-week race that starts in Monaco. Contador “has worked very hard, earning the right to represent our team as the leader this July,” team manager Johan Bruyneel said Thursday on Astana’s Web site. The 27-year-old Spaniard has five stage victories this year, and won the Tour of Algarve in February. Bruyneel, who coached Armstrong en route to all of his Tour victories, noted he was “very happy” with the Texan’s form in his comeback season after three years of retirement. “I know he is extremely motivated for the Tour de France,” he said. Support riders, also known as “domestiques” in cycling parlance, can have roles such as shielding the team leader from the winds in the flats, escorting him up mountain climbs, or even fetching water bottles from team cars trailing the racers. The goals is for the team to take home the yellow jersey of the Tour de France leader. Armstrong was known for often-clinical use of his teammates during his record reign as Tour champion from 1999 to 2005.

oing r a Ride

On his Twitter page Thursday, Armstrong wrote “This is not 2004 or 2005. I’m not the leader of the team.” He also had a link to the Astana Web site for his 1 million-plus followers on the social networking site. Bruyneel’s selections have been widely awaited by many cycling fans because they suggest who he believes Astana should build its team around for the Tour. He also coached Contador to his Tour win. Astana, as with previous Armstrong teams, is exceptionally strong this year. It will include past Tour podium finishers Andreas Kloeden of Germany and American Levi Leipheimer. The team had already announced a list of six Tour riders, including Ukrainian Yaroslav Popovych, the 2005 Tour’s best young rider, and veteran mountain specialist Haimar Zubeldia of Spain. The three additions Thursday were Dmitriy Muravyev, the only Kazakh rider on the squad and a Tour newcomer; Sergio Paulinho of Portugal — a strong Contador ally; and Gregory Rast of Switzerland. Bruyneel passed over Armstrong’s friend Chris Horner, as well as Armstrong’s former Discovery Channel teammate Benjamin Noval. Tomas Vaitkus and Jani Brajkovic also didn’t make the cut. “Horner is the man and we’ll miss him. Period,” Armstrong wrote.

Nike golfers support Armstrong

Several Nike-sponsored golfers are sporting bright yellow golf bags at this week’s Travelers Championship. The bags, which have “Livestrong” on the side, are in support of the Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong Foundation, a charity established by the pro cyclist in 1997 to promote cancer awareness. U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover, last year’s Travelers’ champ Stewart Cink, Bob Tway, Brendon Todd, Kris Blanks, Carl Pettersson and Justin Leonard all have the bags. Tway said the golfers wanted to show support both for the foundation and Armstrong’s upcoming attempt at an eighth Tour de France title. “After this week, we are going to sign the bags and auction them off for charity.”

ATHLETIC STUFF

Roger Federer actually loses a set Lo and behold, Roger Federer actually lost a set at Wimbledon on Friday. Not a match, mind you, just a set, which in and of itself counts as news. Dating to the start of the 2003 tournament, after all, Federer is 43-1 at the All England Club, dropping a total of 11 sets along the way. Here’s the part that’s interesting — and perhaps intimidating to future foes: Federer called his 6-3, 6-2, 6-7 (5), 6-1 victory over 27th-ranked Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany in the third round his best performance of the week. And now, because Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam tournament that rests on the middle Sunday, Federer gets a full weekend for a little R-’n’-R. “It’s nice to have Saturday, Sunday off. It’s nice get off all the pressure for a day or so before you get sucked into it again,” Federer said. “I like to go to the city. I don’t do it that often.” So he’ll head out to a nice dinner in London with his pregnant wife, then get back to work Monday, facing a familiar opponent: Robin Soderling, the man Federer beat in straight sets in the French Open final this month to complete a career Grand Slam and tie Pete Sampras’ record of 14 major titles. Federer is trying to break that mark by collecting No. 15 overall with a sixth Wimbledon championship this

NFL reviewing Plaxico Burress shooting incident

fortnight, while the 13th-seeded Soderling will make his debut in the round of 16 at the All England Club after beating Nicolas Almagro 7-6 (7), 6-4, 6-4.

Goodell was examining the incident in which Burress shot himself in the thigh in late November in a New York City nightclub. The commissioner could suspend him if he finds that the receiver violated the NFL policy on personal conduct. Burress was notified of the commissioner’s review on Friday by Adolpho Birch, the NFL’s vice president of labor and law policy.

Burress, who caught the winning pass in the New York Giants’ Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots in February 2008, was released by New York in April. He has not been signed by another team. Burress still faces charges of c riminal possession of a weapon. He would face up to 3½ years in prison if convicted.

we do care when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at our expense. The Mountaineer ran the ad on Wednesday, June 17 with the all of the sponsors including the Eagle Valley Enterprise logo in our paper. We mention this because he Eagle Valley Enterprise and the Vail Daily are both owned by Swift Newspaper in Reno, Nevada. We included the Eagle County Enterprise in our paper because they donated resources to the community, and when a company sponsors an event and donates to the community they should always be recognized. We are disappointed the Mountaineer didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receive the same respect in return and are appalled the Vail Daily was so arrogant as to replace our logo with theirs in the ad.

What does the word evol. with a backwards “e” mean to you? If you see the word “love,” backwards, you’ll be drawn to the new frozen burrito packaging being launched in September by former Bear Naked chief operating officer Tom Spier, who lives in Eagle-Vail and in Boulder. Spier is pouring $3 million into Phil’s Fresh Foods, an existing Boulder-based frozen burrito company that sells mainly in Whole Foods stores. The company plans to repackage itself and re-emerge as evol. “In the natural and organic market, there’s no strong competitor,” Spier said. “We’ll do a public relations campaign and some targeted marketing in Bould er.” What Spier doesn’t mention when you first meet him, is that he now has his own venture capital fund with money he made when Bear Naked was sold to Kellogg Corp. in 2007. Founders Kelly Flatley and Vail’s Brendan Synnott sold the granola company for a reported $60 million or so; Spier was the “behind-the-scenes” financial guy who worked there from 2004 to 2007. What works? Spiers made a plug for the new evol. burrito while sharing his thoughts on how to be successful in business earlier this week with a host of young professionals at a new Vail Symposium event held at E-Town restaurant in Edwards. “We’ll replicate what worked at Bear Naked,” Spier said. “The packaging is a bright, simple color palette.” Even more than the packaging, what worked at the granola company was a strategy to convince buyers that granola was more than something to be eaten by “tree-hugger, hippies,” Spier said. The company targeted the product to young people and tried to make it “urban cool” with its soft-baked, cookie taste and trendy packaging, he said. “We re-invented the category. When (Bear Naked) started, Quaker Oats was the leader in the granola category,” Spier said. “By the time we sold, we had more market share than Quaker.”

Eagle-Vail resident Tom Spier will launch his new evol. burritos venture in September. Spier was chief operating officer of Bear Naked, the granola company started by Kelly Flatley and Vail’s Brendan Synnott in 2002. Beth Potter photo.

are all ve getarian, Spier said. Evol. burritos will help grow the market, because many of its choices include meat. Listener Barry Davis was exactly the irreverent demographic that could help evol. burritos grow quickly. Davis attended the Vail Symposium event specifically to hear from Spier and Synnott. Synnott couldn’t attend after a recent hip surgery. “We’re young professionals, and we’re here for the crostini,” said Davis. Up to 100 other young professionals and other Vail Symposium supporters milled around, networking and checking out the free food. The Vail Symposium is a grassroots, nonprofit group that’s been bringing educational programs to Vail since 1971. Executive director Carrie Marsh heard Spier speak at a Rotary Club meeting recently and invited him to speak to Symposium members.

Bury me with my stash . . . This one brings back eerie memories of “Reefer Madness” … DALLAS (AP) —A casket without a cadaver yielded nearly 100 pounds (45 kilograms) of marijuana after a traffic stop in Dallas. William Dale Crock of Cave City, Arkansas, was in jail Friday on a marijuana possession charge, plus traffic violations. Dallas police say Crock was arrested Wednesday when bundles of marijuana were discovered under the casket’s cover and pillow. Sr. Cpl. Kevin Janse said the van turned up during surveillance on a suspected drug house. Police stopped the van, after noticing Crock was not wearing a seat belt. Officers also said he allegedly ran a red light and did an improper lane change. A drug-sniffing dog alerted officers to the casket in the van. Rolling along . . .

Local photographer Raymond A. Bleesz caught this nighthawk resting on his deck railing the other day. Nighthawks are sometimes seen during the day to catch insects in flight. They roost on the ground or on low branches within woods. Most are active a night. Nestlings are capable of flight at just 10 days old. Great shot Raymond!
