Wonderful wildflowers Eagle River Valley has rare beauties in bloom right now By Michael Gallagher Special to the Mountaineer If you look outside now, you can catch some rare and beautiful wildflowers that might not be around much longer. When we think of local wildflowers, we immediately think of columbines and wild roses. But the unsung gems of the other side of the road are the native flowers of the juniper-sagebrush zone that is much of our valley. For the best views youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to head north, and face south. From a distance we see much of the brown of the dirt, the blue of the sage, and the greens of juniper and the various other shrubs and tree. Get close, and you see an amazing collection of colors dancing across the otherwise plain dirt and rock and tucked around its larger foliage neighbors. The clues to what lies above are seen along the sides of I-70 in the various species and crosses of penstemons that like the disturbed soils of more recent construction. Rocky Mountain Penstemon is our local penstemon hero. Its stately vertical appearance, beautiful blue-purple flowers, and long flowering season not only grace our native surroundings, but have turned it into a readily available commercial nursery offering. The unknown soldier of our penstemon population appears in a curious violet blanket that appears above Traer Creek in Osterhoutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Penstsemon. Though the recent crop that followed the redo of the hillside itself seems odd, in its natural setting its colors blend beautifully with the blues and greens of the surrounding trees and shrubs. Up close, the true colors stand out. Although more of a violet flower, it sometimes is an intense violet blue, and sometimes bicolor. The flowers also turn an bright blue as its flower expire. Most other flower types dull out when they turn as they go to seed. Its sage blue foliage is evergreen.

Mariposa Tulips and Aspen Fleabane make cute companions.

Penstemons provide some of the most elegant and beautiful, and sometimes rare native color.

One of our most beautiful penstemons is also one of our most rare in Colorado. Harringtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s penstemon mostly occurs in Eagle County, although fringe populations surround us in other counties, and scattered occurrences exist west and south, but it is truly Eagle Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s penstemon. This incredible luminous lavender jewel is tinged with darker purple or blue tones, and like Pentemon osterhoutii, it is not available on the commercial market. And other penstemons types are native or have natural-

ized in the area. While penstemons are a significant part of the local flower population, we have many other treats in our foothills. Two fleabanes happily share their daisylike flowers. Erigeron speciousus is the lavender colored aster look-alike, and Erigeron compositus is the cute little white fleabane that shows up here and there. Mariposa Tulips dot the landscape and bring an elegant white cup to the table. Wild lupine adds to the blues of

Plot thickens for film festival Special events group may tighten rules By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer

When it comes to the case of finding funding and venues so the Vail Film Festival can grow, the plot is thickening. Vail’s Commission on Special Events members on Friday discussed whether or not organizers of events that get town funding should be allowed “shop” their events to other communities within 100 miles of Vail. The public group funded almost $700,000 of events for 2009 with tax revenues. “Vail’s brand/identity needs to be retained if it’s an existing event,” said Sybill Navas, director of the special events board, in talking about possible new rules to govern the group’s funding. The Vail Film Festival has said it wants to grow bigger, getting a $60,000 commitment from Beaver Creek Resort Co. this spring to hold more events there. “In light of the event we’re not supposed to be talking about, they might move because they get more sponsorship from Beaver Creek,” said Meggen Kirkham, a member of the special events board. Growing bigger Film festival organizers wants to grow bigger — they don’t necessarily want to move, said Kaye Ferry, a spokeswoman for the festival. Organizers were able to show just 60 films at this year’s event, even though they had 1,200 submissions, she said. “Somehow, we have entered into a political discussion,” Ferry said. “This has never been about what the Town of Vail can offer, or about competition.” Ferry compared the Vail Film Festival to the venerable Sundance Film Festival, pointing out that most films at the Utah festival actually are shown in Park City. “We can speculate about what the expansion of the event means, and the ability to grow both ways almost

simultaneously,” Ferry said. Ferry called the group “parochial” in its thinking about how event funding should be used. Board member Heather Trub then pointed out that Vail has invested more than $400,000 in funding the event over the years. Beaver Creek holds off The special events group made no decisions on the matter, which also included a discussion about whether events that get Vail funding should be allowed to partner with other communities. Beaver Creek Resort is not involved in the public discussion at the moment, said Tony O’Rourke, director of village operations. “We will suspend any further discussion and decisionmaking from the Beaver Creek perspective until we get a sense of where Vail wants to go on this,” O’Rourke said. “There are too many moving parts.” But Beaver Creek has been involved in co-sponsoring and hosting many popular Vail Valley events, O’Rourke said, from the Vail and Beaver Creek Mountain Bike Race Series held at a variety of spots around the county, to Bravo! and Vail Dance Festival events held at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek. “We need to look at it from the standpoint of the patron, the customer,” O’Rourke said. “I don’t think they care, as long as we’re producing a great event.”

“Sole Searching Sundays”

By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer EDITOR’S NOTE: Every few days we take a cruise through some local police reports so we can bring you our favorites. The general theme is two-fold: (1) Sometimes we’re all this silly, and (2) this stuff is funny because it’s not happening to you … this time. See Sea World: There’s nothing like driving from Englewood all the way to the Southern California coast to view marine life in a concrete tank. Sea Man was behind a tree, engaged in a bit of individual irrigation – if you know what we mean and we think you do – when Sheriff’s deputies noticed him. When they inquired as to what in heaven’s name he thought he was doing, he said “I’m going to Sea World,” which is not as cool as saying “I’m going to Disneyland!” But it’s in the same SoCal neighborhood. Unfortunately, his individual irrigation techniques did not drain all the alcohol from his bloodstream, so he did not get to return to

Englewood, nor advance to Sea World. At last report, he was watching water swirl in the sink of his cell in the Eagle County Crossbar Hotel. Also, there was a warrant out for his arrest on domestic violence charges, so Sea World probably seemed like a good idea at the time. Bilingual Butthead: We’ll call her Adorable Annie, about as adorable as a human being can be, which apparently brings out the writer in a person, in both English and Spanish. She needed to make sure that her new, uninvited pen pal was completely clear. The letters are not threatening, but there have been four of them. So like any good pen pal, she had to write back, in a manner of speaking. Only she sent her letters to the authorities, who ask Annie’s pen pal to get over it, (that if it’s a non-guy female type person), because Adorable Annie is always going to be cuter. And if it’s a dude, you’re getting dangerously close to stalking, bro, and we ain’t talking celery.

Local charity cancels Honduras trip Political unrest, volunteer safety leads to decision By Randy Wyrick Mountaineer Staff Writer A local charity that builds schools in some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most politically unstable areas has decided that Honduras is just too dangerous for a volunteer trip. Schools for the Children of the World cancelled next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trip to Honduras. The group was to finish one school and start on two others. The group takes groups of volunteers to Honduras twice each year. The decision to cancel this trip was brutal, said Todd DeJong, director of development for Schools for the Children of the World. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we cancel the trip, the situation could clear up and we could look like we made the wrong decision, said DeJong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However if the situation continued as it is or worsened, we could potentially put team members in an unsafe situation.â&#x20AC;? So theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll stay safe to serve another day, DeJong said. Both the U.S. State Department and Canadian Foreign Affairs Office say trips to Honduras are a bad idea right now. Big plans and politics DeJong said 35 people had made arrangements for the mission trip to Honduras. SCW has sent groups every six months, in July and February since 1996. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve visited more than 12,500 locations to help the Honduran government figure out where aid can be most effective. But politics as usual in the Central [See SCHOOLS, page 13]

Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president and Africaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, Barack Obama dashed with pride onto the continent of his ancestors Saturday, challenging its people to shed corruption and conflict in favor of peace. Campaigning to all of Africa, he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes you can.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I say this knowing full well the tragic past that has sometimes haunted this part of the world,â&#x20AC;? Obama told a riveted Ghanaian Parliament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have the blood of Africa within me.â&#x20AC;? In the faces of those who lined the streets and in many of Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own words, this trip was personal. Beyond his message, the story was his presence â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the first black U.S. president coming to poor, proud, predominantly black subSahara Africa for his first time in office. The emotional touchstone of his visit: a tour of Cape Coast Castle, the cannonlined fortress where slaves were kept in squalid dungeons, then shipped in chains to America through a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Door of No Returnâ&#x20AC;? that opens to the sea. The White House said Obama held no

Obama will be back to Africa. But he suggested that he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go for the traditional model of devoting a trip to Africa alone, as if it is separated from world affairs. Instead, African nations might be wrapped into his multinational travels more often. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What happens here,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;has an impact everywhere.â&#x20AC;?

Pigs may catch people flu

Reuters is reporting that pigs are becoming increasingly susceptible to the H1N1 virus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; commonly known as Swine Flu â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from humans, which could mix up virus strains further, leading to unpredictable changes in the disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the increasing numbers of human infections, a spill-over of this human virus to pigs is becoming more likely,â&#x20AC;? says Thomas Vahlenkamp, a German scientist that studies this sort of thing.

Sotomayor to go before Senate this week, spectacle planned Live from the Capitol, Sonia Sotomayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confirmation hearings promise high political theater this week, beamed to the world in dramatic, historic, perhaps comedic glory. When the curtain rises Monday on Sotomayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination to become the Supreme Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Hispanic justice, a large cast of ambitious players will be ready to explore themes from racial conflict to legal controversy, as well as personal facts and views. If this is a show, top billing must go to Sotomayor herself, the federal appeals court judge who grew up in a New York housing project where her parents had moved from Puerto Rico. But with camera-loving politicians in charge, the Senate Judiciary Committee drama wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be just about her. This is about them, too.

Minority children turned away from pool club

The head of a private suburban Philadelphia swim club on Friday defended its cancellation of the memberships of dozens of minority children, saying safety, not racism, was the reason. Tempers flared after the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president John Duesler issued a statement Tuesday saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was concern that a lot of kids would change the complexion â&#x20AC;Ś and the atmosphere of the club.â&#x20AC;? He later backtracked on those comments saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We deeply regret this whole situation.â&#x20AC;? Duesler said the number of children in the shallow section of the pool, many of them unable to swim, convinced officials that there was a problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was definitely an unsafe situation,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Creative Steps camp had arranged for 65 mostly black and Hispanic children to swim each Monday afternoon at the club this summer. But director Alethea Wright said that shortly after they arrived for their first visit, some children reported hearing racial comments, and the campâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $1,950 was refunded a few days later. The clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions have prompted an investigation by the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission and made headlines across the country.

Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one for the Vail town council

The upper class, picturesque town of Tiburon that extends into San Francisco Bay is poised to do something unprecedented: use cameras to record the license plate number of every vehicle that enters the city, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Some residents portray the cameras as a commonsense way to thwart thieves, most of whom come from out of town. Others see an electronic border gate and worry that the plan will only reinforce the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image of exclusivity and snootiness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I personally donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see too much harm in it, because I have nothing to hide,â&#x20AC;? commodities broker Paul Lambert, 64, said after a trip to Boardwalk Market in downtown Tiburon on a recent afternoon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yet,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it still has the taint of Big Brother.â&#x20AC;?

NASA scrubbed space shuttle Endeavourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Saturday evening launch after lightning struck at least 11 times near the seaside launch pad. NASA technicians found no damage after an electrical storm Friday afternoon, but said they will need at least another day to check critical systems. A mission management team plans to meet early Sunday to determine if all the testing has been completed and whether to fuel Endeavour for a possible Sunday evening launch. Liftoff would be at 7:13 p.m. if NASA attempts to launch Sunday. Mike Moses, chairman of that team, said there were 11 lightning strikes within three-tenths of a mile of the pad, although none of them struck the shuttle, external tank or the two solid rocket boosters. At the pad, the shuttle has an elaborate lightning protection system with sensors and wires to direct lightning away from the shuttle and its rockets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The lightning protection system did its job,â&#x20AC;? he said. Moses said the assessment can be done in 24 hours, but there could be another delay if it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finished. A complete retest of the system could take two weeks. Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weather is expected to slightly better, with conditions 60 percent favorable for launch. The main concern will be thunderstorms.

Lance Armstrong remains a major factor after the eighth stage of the Tour de France on Saturday. Armstrong held his position in third place and Spain’s Luis Leon Sanchez won the stage in a sprint ahead of three other breakaway riders. Rinaldo Nocentini of Italy earned the yellow jersey for the second straight day by finishing in a pack with Armstrong and his Astana teammate Alberto Contador. The 2007 Tour winner is six seconds back, with Armstrong eight seconds back. Armstrong went straight to the team bus after the stage and did not speak to reporters. He posted on Twitter: “St8 done. Tough but not 2 challenging. Had antidoping control AGAIN. Couldn’t pee so it took forever. Sucked! Now I’m starting to wonder tho” Teammate Levi Leipheimer is 39 seconds off the pace in fourth place overall. Nocentini almost lost his yellow jersey when the main race favorites— including Armstrong and Contador—left him behind in the last of the climbs. He credited an escort from his AG2R La Mondiale teammate Stephane Goubert for helping him catch up. “I had been dropped,” said Nocentini, a 31-year-old riding in his first Tour. “To him, I say ‘thank you’ for helping me hang on to the yellow jersey.” Riders face a third and final day in the Pyrenees on Sunday, a 100-mile course from Saint-Gaudens to Tarbes via the famed Tourmalet Pass, one of the toughest climbs in pro cycling. The three-week race ends July 26 in Paris, with the Alps, a final individual time trial and the dreaded Mont Ventoux awaiting in the last week.

A glance around the greens Goodbyes: Job, status, memory, and entrance fees  LPGA commissioner to get the boot

After Carolyn Bivens has tried virtually everything she could come up with to pump up the LPGA’s popularity, it appears the board will decide it’s time for a new leader. Golf Digest and GolfWeek Magazine reported on their Web sites Thursday that the embattled commissioner will in fact be replaced. Golf Digest cites multiple sources saying Bivens’s four-year tenure could end BIVENS as soon as next week. Bivens has 18 months left on a threeyear contract extension signed in early 2008. Citing a source in tournament management, Golf Digest reported that a general agreement on financial terms was reached with Bivens late Wednesday. A faction of tour players had sent a letter to the LPGA Tour board seeking Bivens’ ouster. In the letter, the group said the tour’s problems can’t be blamed on a poor economy and a new leader is needed. All that remains to be determined now, according to Golf Digest, is when Bivens leaves.

Harrington makes it three victories in a row at Irish pga Championship

Padraig Harrington has won the Irish PGA Championship for the third straight time, ending a month of poor results in time for his title defense next week in the British Open. Harrington closed with a 1-over 72 on Saturday at The European Club for a seven-shot victory over former British Amateur champion Brian McElhinney. Harrington prefers to play the Irish PGA, which is not sanctioned by any of the major tours, to prepare himself for links golf, which he will face at Turnberry. He has won the last two years at the Irish PGA, then gone on to win the Open. Harrington had missed the cut in his last five tournaments.

Golf/Poker challenge poses problems

Dusty Schmidt just wants to compete as an amateur golfer. The USGA maintains that the online poker player gave up his amateur status when he threw down a $1 million challenge to anyone who could beat him at 72 holes of golf and at poker. Now it’s up to a judge to decide. Schmidt has filed a complaint seeking a temporary restraining order that would allow him to keep his amateur status with the USGA and play in a series of events in the Pacific Northwest. A hearing in the mat-

ter is scheduled for Monday in U.S. District Court in Portland. While Schmidt portrays himself as an innocent victim who simply wants to compete in the sport he loves, the USGA claims in court documents that he is a selfpromoter who flouted the rules for amateur status with his golf-and-poker challenge. “At the end of the day, I’m trying to get my amateur status back. I am trying to fight for my right NOT to make money playing golf, basically,” he said. “I just want to play golf, and I believe I should be allowed to play golf.” Schmidt estimates he’s made $3 million gambling online and live a comfortable lifestyle. But what he says he really wants to do is play golf competitively.

Solid strike with a 6 iron lands man in jail

What’s wrong with hitting a nice solid 6 iron? Nothing unless it’s across another man’s dome. A golfer has been sentenced to 1 1/2 years in prison for bashing another player over the head with a 6-iron during a fight over slow play. The 34-year-old man, Nicholas Jay Shampine, had been convicted of assault in Washington state. At Thursday’s sentencing, he said he was sorry, but also claimed he was defending his brother in the clash a year ago between two groups of golfers. The victim, 45-year-old James Compton, says he still has memory loss and headaches.

Free golf and trap shooting: The classy perks of a career politician

Lobbyists paid to influence Utah lawmakers have treated legislators to free rounds of golf, trap shooting and scores of meals in the past three months, financial disclosure reports due Friday show. The quarterly reports also show that Rocky Mountain Power lobbyist Kevin Boardman paid $150 entrance fees at a Salt Lake Chamber golf tournament for both Sen. Gene Davis, D-Salt Lake City, and Sen. Brent Goodfellow, D-West Valley City. The chamber’s Web site notes that “players receive gifts created exclusively for the tournament,” although it doesn’t elaborate. Davis and Goodfellow aren’t the only ones the reports show like to golf. Sen. Curt Bramble, R-Provo, and Sen. Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, were treated to golf and lunch at Alpine Country Club by EnergySolutions Inc. lobbyist Reed Searle. Utah Taxpayers Association lobbyist Royce Van Tassel paid for seven rounds of golf on June 26, but did not identify the golfer was. Under state law, lawmakers are supposed to be identified for any expenditure made to view or participate in a sporting or recreational event.

About Schools for Children of the World Schools for Children of the World is a non-profit organization the helps build schools in rural areas of Third World countries. For more information, email or go to American country derailed everything. The Honduran Supreme Court kicked President Jose Manuel Zelaya out of office for trying to change that countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Constitution, so he could remain in office for another four-year term. The Honduran congress voted to support their Supreme Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling. Honduran presidents are limited to one term, as are most Latin American presidents. Honduran soldiers removed Zelaya from the presidential palace at bayonet point. Provisional Honduran President Roberto Micheletti said Zelaya would be arrested on multiple charges if he returns. Alejandra Madrid is the SCW coordinator in Honduras. He said getting the groups access to worksites could be a problem, along with safety concerns. SCW hopes to reschedule the trip in September or October. If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it then, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the regularly scheduled trip in February, DeJong said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best thing you can do is keep Honduras in your prayers,â&#x20AC;? said DeJong.

Edwards based Schools for the Children of the World cancelled next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteer trip to Honduras, postponing plans to finish one school and start two others. Political unrest in the Central American country led to the decision. Photo courtesy Schools for the Children of the World.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Sunday, July 12, the 193rd day of 2009. There are 172 days left in the year. On July 12, 1984, Democratic presidential candidate Walter F. Mondale announced he’d chosen U.S. Rep. Geraldine A. Ferraro of New York to be his running-mate; Ferraro was the first woman to run for vice president on a major-party ticket. On this date: In 1543, England’s King Henry VIII married his sixth and last wife, Catherine Parr. In 1690, forces led by William of Orange defeated the army of James II at the Battle of the Boyne in Ireland. In 1812, United States forces led by Gen. William Hull entered Canada during the War of 1812 against Britain. (However, Hull retreated shortly thereafter to Detroit.) In 1862, Congress authorized the Medal of Honor. In 1908, comedian Milton Berle was born Mendel Berlinger in New York City. In 1909, the House of Representatives joined the Senate in passing the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, allowing for a federal income tax, and submitted it to the states. (It was declared ratified in February 1913.) In 1948, the Democratic national convention, which nominated President Harry S. Truman for a second term of office, opened in Philadelphia. In 1977, President Jimmy Carter defended Supreme Court limits on government payments for poor women’s abortions, saying, “There are many things in life that are not fair.” In 1988, Democratic presidential candidate Michael S. Dukakis tapped Sen. Lloyd Bentsen of Texas as his running-mate. In 1993, some 200 people were killed when a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck northern Japan and triggered a tsunami. Ten years ago: President Bill Clinton and Republican congressional leaders held their first face-to-face budget meeting of the year; the talk was described afterward as positive. Five years ago: President George W. Bush defended the Iraq war during a visit to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, saying the invasion had made America safer. Wall Street brokerage Morgan Stanley settled a sex discrimination suit brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, agreeing to pay $54 million. One year ago: Former White House press secretary Tony Snow died in Washington at age 53. Former All-Star outfielder and longtime Yankees broadcaster Bobby Murcer died in Oklahoma City at age 62. Angelina Jolie gave birth to twins Knox and Vivienne, making a family of eight with Brad Pitt. Today’s Birthdays: Movie director Monte Hellman is 77. Pianist Van Cliburn is 75. Comedian Bill Cosby is 72. Singer-musician Christine McVie is 66. Actress Denise Nicholas is 65. Singer-songwriter Butch Hancock is 64. Fitness guru Richard Simmons is 61. Actor Jay Thomas is 61. Singer Walter Egan is 61. Writer-producer Brian Grazer is 58. Actress Cheryl Ladd is 58. Actor Jamey Sheridan is 58. Country singer Julie Miller is 53. Gospel singer Sandi Patty is 53. Actress Mel Harris is 53. Actor Buddy Foster is 52. Rock guitarist Dan Murphy (Soul Asylum) is 47. Actress Judi Evans is 45. Rock singer Robin Wilson (Gin Blossoms) is 44. Actress Lisa Nicole Carson is 40. Olympic gold medal figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi is 38. Country singer Shannon Lawson is 36. Rapper Magoo is 36. San Jose Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle is 33. Actress Anna Friel is 33. R&B singer Tracie Spencer is 33. Actor Steve Howey is 32. Actor Topher Grace is 31. Actress Michelle Rodriguez is 31. Actor Erik Per Sullivan is 18. Thought for Today: “Man is not made for society, but society is made for man. No institution can be good which does not tend to improve the individual.” — Margaret Fuller, American social reformer (1810-1850).
